Bounce TV

Bounce TV is an American digital multicast television network owned by Katz Broadcasting, a subsidiary of E. W. Scripps Company. Promoted as "the first 24/7 digital multicast broadcast network created to target African Americans", the channel features a mix of original and acquired programming geared toward African Americans between 25 and 54 years of age; the network is affiliated with broadcast television stations in several markets through digital subchannels. The network was founded on April 5, 2011; the founding group and initial ownership team included Martin Luther King III. Spearheading the network's creation were former Turner Broadcasting executives Jonathan Katz and Ryan Glover with the pair having worked together with Tyler Perry to produce a number of high-order African-American sitcoms for TBS. Glover is president of Bounce TV and Katz is Chief Operating Officer; the "Bounce TV" name was chosen as a branding avenue to signify that the network is "going somewhere with energy". The network formally launched on September 26, 2011 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time, with the 1978 musical film The Wiz as its inaugural broadcast followed by A Raisin in the Sun with Do the Right Thing in prime time.

The movie in primetime on the second day was Spike Lee's School Daze. This would be followed two days with its first sports telecast, CIAA football; the network added its first acquired sitcoms in January 2015, when it acquired the rights to four series. On Friday, January 29, 2016, Bounce broadcast the 24th Annual Trumpet Awards, which honored history-making individuals; the network started producing its first primetime news magazine, Ed Gordon, in late June 2016 for a Tuesday, September 13, 2016 premiere. On October 2, 2017, E. W. Scripps purchased Bounce TV along with Katz Broadcasting's three other networks. Bounce TV features programming geared toward an African American audience that skews older than the demographic that its cable competitor BET targets. Bounce TV's programming features a mix of acquired series and feature films; the network added its first acquired sitcoms in January 2015, when it acquired the rights to four series through deals with Warner Bros. Television Distribution, Carsey–Warner Distribution, CBS Television Distribution/Big Ticket Television, 20th Television and Trifecta Entertainment & Media.

The 1990s CBS series Cosby was removed from Bounce's schedule on July 7, 2015 after Bill Cosby's past admissions about his sexual assault allegations were publicized. Unlike most digital multicast services, Bounce TV carries original programming; the network added originally-produced inspirational and music programming and specials to its lineup in 2012, beginning with the broadcast television premiere of the documentary Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Historical Perspective on January 16, 2012, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Bounce TV's first original weekly series debuted on June 18, 2012, with the series premieres of the sitcom Family Time and the stand-up comedy series Uptown Comic. In addition, shortly before its launch, Bounce TV reached an agreement with the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association to acquire the television rights to broadcast its football and basketball games; the first sports broadcast on Bounce TV aired on September 28, 2011, a college football game between Bowie State University and Virginia Union University.

Bounce's HBCU-centered sports programming expanded in 2013 to include games from the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Sports programming on the network ceased prior to the 2014 season. On May 7, 2015, Bounce TV announced that they would be airing live boxing events from Premier Boxing Champions under the title: PBC: The Next Round. On March 6, 2016, the debut of the primetime soap Saints & Sinners took in 1.3 million viewers, making it Bounce TV's most-watched program to date. • Tyler Perry's House Of PayneTyler Perry's Meet The Browns Cosby The Cosby Show Forgive or Forget Half and Half The Hughleys Judge Hatchett The Parent'Hood Roc Soul Train One Love As of December 2014, Bounce TV has current or pending affiliation agreements with television stations in 43 media markets encompassing 22 states and the District of Columbia, covering 73% of all households of at least one television set in the United States and 90% of African-American households. The network encourages its affiliates to carry local news programming in place of regular programming on the Bounce-affiliated subchannel, as a way to attract additional viewers to that subchannel and serve the local market.

Affiliates broadcast local public affairs programs, political specials, college football and basketball games played by predominantly black schools. Before its launch, Bounce TV sought affiliation agreements with various television station owners to make the network available throughout the United States; the network launched with clearance rate of, at minimum, 32% of overa

Eating Disorder Examination Interview

The Eating Disorder Examination Interview devised by Cooper & Fairburn is a semi-structured interview conducted by a clinician in the assessment of an eating disorder. The EDE is a semi-structured interview conducted by a trained clinician to assess the psychopathology associated with the diagnosis of an eating disorder; the EDE is rated through the use of a global score. The four subscales are: 1. Restraint 2. Eating concern 3. Shape concern 4. Weight concernThe questions concern the frequency in which the patient engages in behaviors indicative of an eating disorder over a 28-day period; the test is scored on a 7-point scale from 0-6. With a zero score indicating not having engaged in the questioned behavior; the Eating Disorders Examination Questionnaire was adapted from the EDE. The EDE-Q is a 41 item self-report questionnaire, it retains the format of the EDE including global score. It concerns behaviors over a 28-day time period and retains the scoring system of 0-6, with 0 indicating no days, 1=1–5 days, 2=6–12 days, 3=13–15 days, 4=16–22 days, 5=23–27 days and 6= every day.

Three-CCD camera

A three-CCD camera is a camera whose imaging system uses three separate charge-coupled devices, each one receiving filtered red, green, or blue color ranges. Light coming in from the lens is split by a complex prism into three beams, which are filtered to produce colored light in three color ranges or "bands"; the system is employed by high quality still cameras, telecine systems, professional video cameras and some prosumer video cameras. Compared to cameras with only one CCD, three-CCD cameras provide superior image quality by using full-frame dichroic filters to better separate the red and blue color bands, better low-light performance. By separating red and blue color ranges with a 1:1 pixel ratio, three-CCD cameras achieve much better precision than single-CCD cameras. In contrast all single-CCD cameras use a Bayer filter, using less accurate dye filters in front of each pixel to separate the colors; because each pixel on a single CCD sensor is covered with its own tiny color filter, a frame is necessary to keep the dye filters from leaking into adjacent pixels.

The result is less light absorbed compared to a CCD without a Bayer filter. There is a 2:1 ratio of green and red/blue pixels, producing less color detail. Three-CCD cameras are more expensive than single-CCD cameras because they use three sensors rather than one, because they use a beam splitter to drive each of the three CCD chips. Additionally most 3CCD cameras use higher quality but more expensive dichroic filters to separate the color bands; the Minolta RD-175 introduced in 1995 has 3CCD technology.

Cameroon climbing mouse

The Cameroon climbing mouse is a species of rodent in the family Nesomyidae, endemic to the montane grasslands on three mountains in Cameroon. The Cameroon climbing mouse is a rather small species of mouse with a long tail and an indistinct black stripe along its back and a long tail; the fur on the dorsum is brown. There are white or cream patches on the throat and on the chin, on the anal fur; the ears are blackish with a fine covering of tawny hairs and with a pale spot at the base of each ear on the outer margin. The hindfoot has 5 digits with didit 5 being opposable to the other digits, it is found only in Cameroon where it is known from three mountains: Mount Cameroon from 1,700 to 4,000 m above sea level, Mount Manenguba between 1,800 and 1,900 m in altitude and Mount Kupe where it occurs around 850m. Montane savannas above the tree line, among boulders on Mount Cameroon, in grassy scrub on Mount Manenguba and occurring in plantation and farmland on Mount Kupe, it avoids the montane forests at lower altitudes.

The Cameroon climbing mouse is both diurnal and nocturnal and lives on the ground, digging burrows into the soil despite being well adapted for climbing. The Cameroon climbing mouse is threatened by climate change which may lead to scrub and tree growth higher up the mountains in its restricted range and as the lower forests are cleared grazing livestock may move up to higher latitudes.
