Paris Theatre

The Paris Theatre was a cinema located at 12 Lower Regent Street in central London, converted into a studio by the BBC for radio broadcasts requiring an audience. It was used for several decades by the BBC as the main venue for comedy programmes broadcast on BBC Radios 2 and 4; the venue had a capacity of under 400 and a stage twelve inches from the floor, giving it an intimate feeling helpful for radio comedy with an audience. Shows recorded there included panel game shows such as I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, comedy such as Hi Gang!, Dad's Army and Don't Stop Now - It's Fundation and non-audience shows such as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In addition to comedy, the BBC recorded performances by musical artists at the Paris Theatre, including acts such as T. Rex, AC/DC, the Beatles, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen 1968, Shakin' Stevens, Streetwalkers, Jeff Beck, Deep Purple, Hawkwind, Status Quo, Sad Café, Dr. Feelgood, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Barclay James Harvest, Rod Stewart, Simple Minds, the Screaming Blue Messiahs, the Pretenders and the Wailers.

Some of these performances were recorded in front of live studio audiences as part of the In Concert and Sounds of the Seventies series, several of these acts have subsequently released tapes of sessions recorded at the studio, such as Led Zeppelin's BBC Sessions album. It was the London home of the BBC's Radio 1 Club in the late 1960s and early 1970s; the Paris Theatre was closed in 1995, being replaced by the BBC Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House. The demise of the Paris Theatre was marked with a commemorative concert and broadcast of the last show to be recorded at the theatre, namely the final show in series two of The Skivers.

Butler Bulldogs men's basketball

The Butler Bulldogs men's basketball team represents Butler University in Indianapolis, United States. The school's team competes in the Big East Conference, their current head coach is LaVall Jordan and they play their home games at Hinkle Fieldhouse. Despite having played in a mid-major conference, Butler rose to national prominence in the 1990s, they ranked in most media polls for all but a few weeks from the 2006–07 season to the 2011–12 season, competed in the postseason every year since 1997, except for 2004, 2005, 2014. In the 2010 NCAA Tournament, Butler was the National runner-up to Duke, advancing to the National Championship Game after defeating Michigan State in the Final Four. With a total enrollment of only 4,500 students, Butler is the smallest school to play for a national championship since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985; the Bulldogs went to the championship game in the following NCAA Tournament, falling to UConn after defeating VCU in the Final Four. With the victory over VCU, Butler became the first mid-major program to reach the championship game in successive seasons since 1979, when seeding of the tournament began, the only team from the state of Indiana to reach back-to-back championship games.

After spending one season in the Atlantic 10 Conference, Butler moved into the realigned basketball-only Big East Conference for the 2013–14 season. Their first season was mediocre, finishing 9th out of 10 teams with a 14–17 record, their first losing record since 2004–05. In their second season, despite being picked to finish 7th, the Bulldogs surprised many by finishing tied for second place in the conference. Butler finished the 2015–16 season in a tie for fourth place in Big East play with a record of 21–11, 10–8 in conference and receiving a bid to the NCAA Tournament where they advanced to the Second Round; because of the school's history of basketball success, location in the heart of the land of "Hoosier Hysteria", lack of a scholarship football program, the Butler University fan base is basketball oriented. Other athletics enjoy substantial followings of current students and alumni, but only basketball has garnered interest from a national audience. Two studies estimated that television and online news coverage of Butler's 2010 and 2011 appearances in the NCAA tournament championship game resulted in additional publicity for the university worth about $1.2 billion.

In an example of the "Flutie effect", applications rose by 41% after the 2010 appearance. In June 2011, USA Today ranked Butler as one of the top five colleges making use of social media. Specific to basketball, Butler's mascot, Butler Blue, the men's basketball program, head coach LaVall Jordan, other coaches have university-endorsed Twitter accounts. Online communities Butler Hoops and /r/ButlerUniversity exist to facilitate discussion among fans. In 2013, a student-run podcast, called the "Front Row Hoopcast," was started to give commentary and insight to Butler Basketball from the student perspective. In recent years, the Butler program has received national attention for its philosophy to the game, which it calls "The Butler Way". At its core, The Butler Way calls for complete commitment and exalts teamwork above self; the Bulldogs have appeared in 16 NCAA Tournaments. Their combined record is 24–16. *Following the introduction of the "First Four" round in 2011, the Round of 64 and Round of 32 were referred to as the Second Round and Third Round from 2011 to 2015.

From 2016 moving forward, the Round 64 and Round of 32 will be called the First and Second rounds, as they were prior to 2011. The Bulldogs have appeared in nine National Invitation Tournaments, their combined record is 5–9. The Bulldogs have appeared in one College Basketball Invitational, their record is 2–1.

Marcos Maidana

Marcos René Maidana is an Argentine former professional boxer who competed from 2004 to 2014. He was a world champion in two weight classes, having held the WBA super lightweight title from 2011 to 2012, the WBA welterweight title from 2013 to 2014. A versatile brawler in the ring, Maidana was well known for his formidable punching power, was never stopped in any of his five losses, he famously outbrawled and withstood punishing blows from Floyd Mayweather, Jr. during their first bout, but lost to Mayweather via majority decision. Maidana started his career in 2004 before turning 21 years old, he fought his first 18 fights in his native Argentina over two years, winning all, including 17 via stoppage. On his 18th bout, he won the WBA Fedelatin super lightweight title. Over the next year, Maidana only fought once five times in Germany and once in Panama. At the end of 2008, Maidana had a professional record of 25-0, with 24 stoppages. On 2 February 2009, Maidana challenged for his first world title, the WBA super lightweight championship against Andreas Kotelnik at the StadtHalle in Rostock, Germany.

Kotelnik beat Maidana via controversial split decision, with the judges scoring the fight 115–114, 113–115, 115–113 in Kotelnik's favour. Maidana was credited with landing 342 of 1241 punches thrown, with 259 of them being power punches and Kotelnik was more accurate in landing 229 of his 655 thrown. Maidana's first fight in the United States was against Victor Ortíz, that took place on June 27, 2009 for the Interim WBA super lightweight title. Ortiz entered the fight with an eight-fight knockout streak. Both Ortiz and Maidana were knocked down in the first round. Ortiz knocked Maidana to the canvas twice in the second round. Ortiz was knocked down in the sixth; the fight was stopped. Many in the boxing media, including HBO, chastised Ortiz for not wanting to continue in the fight. After his fight with Ortiz, it was rumoured that Maidana would face British boxer, WBA super lightweight champion, Amir Khan, who won the title after defeating Andreas Kotelnik. However, Khan opted for Paulie Malignaggi as his next opponent.

As a result, Maidana was scheduled to fight on 27 March 2010, against Victor Cayo, whose record, at that time, was 24-0 with 75% of victories coming by way of knockout. Maidana knocked out the undefeated Cayo in the sixth round to retain his interim WBA super lightweight title and improve his record to 28-1, with 27 knockouts. After failing to secure a fight with Timothy Bradley, Maidana fought and defeated DeMarcus Corley in August 2010. Despite knocking Corley down in the seventh round, Maidana had to go the distance for only the third time in his career securing the victory via unanimous decision 117–110, 117–110, 115–112. With the knockdown, many believed the fight was close. By round 11, Maidana was tired and both fighters traded in the final round. Before his fight with Corley, Maidana accused Khan and trainer Freddie Roach of "hypocrisy" and called out Khan in an interview: Khan was looking for a good opponent to challenge him for his WBA title. One of his possible opponents was lightweight Champion Juan Manuel Marquez.

Marquez stayed at lightweight. Maidana stated his intention to fight Khan: "Stop looking for possible opponents for next Khan 11 December in England. Stop looking for lightweight boxers and face the real 140-pounders. I'll go to Khan's home soil to take the other portion of the WBA title that belongs to me." The fight was confirmed on 16 September to take place at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on 11 December. Khan was reported to earn at least $1.5 million compared to Maidana who had a purse of $550,000. Khan defended his title for the third time against Maidana. Khan knocked Maidana down with a combination of 2 body shots in the first round. Maidana continued to battle on. Khan dominated the scoring until tiring around round 7. Maidana midway through round 10 stunned Khan with a heavy right hand. Maidana could not drop Khan. Khan rallied to win rounds 11 and 12 to solidify a unanimous points decision; the scores were 114–111, 114–111, 113–112. Khan was open to a rematch. Khan landed 273 of 603 punches thrown and Maidana landed 156 of 767 thrown.

The fight was awarded Fight of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association of America. On 10 February 2011, Golden Boy promoter Richard Schaefer announced that a deal was reached for Maidana to next fight former three-weight world champion Érik Moralez on 9 April at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on HBO PPV billed as'Action Heroes'. In the first round, Maidana came out with ferocity as expected and proceeded to batter his older opponent around the ring, he landed multiple power punches, including an uppercut that opened a huge swelling over Morales' left eye which worsened over the course of the fight, when the Mexican walked back to his corner having taken a large amount of punishment in the opening three minutes most observers felt their predictions were being fulfilled. The one-sided nature of the bout continued for the next couple of rounds, but at the end of the third round Morales begin to fight back and landed a hard combination to the head of Maidana and the tide began to turn. From the fourth round onwards and although he was fighting with one eye, Morales gave as good as he got and was landing the cleaner more effective shots, albeit being swarmed by the sheer number of punches being landed in return by the relentless Maidana.

The fight became a see-saw affair and i

Ger Robinson

Ger Robinson is an Irish football striker, who last played for Kildare County in the League of Ireland. Robinson trained with the likes of Ravenelli and Paul Gascoigne as a youngster with Middlesbrough. While playing with the Middlesbrough reserves he has put the ball in the famous Anfield net, he never quite made the senior squad at Middlesbrough and returned to Ireland on loan at Dundalk F. C.. He scored on his League of Ireland debut at home to Shels on 27 August 2001 and at the end of the season he picked up an FAI Cup winner's medal, he had spells with Kilkenny City, Monaghan United and Longford Town before changing codes to play GAA. For Longford he scored one goal in 7 total appearancesHe picked up a Meath Senior Football Championship winner's medal for St Peters Dunboyne in the following years, where he was man of the match in the final. Robinson returned to soccer when his uncle John Ryan gave him a chance to line out for Kildare County while maintaining his GAA commitments at the same time.

In the 2006 seasons and the 2007 seasons he played for Kildare County only in the latter end of the season due to GAA commitments. In this spell he scored 10 goals in 15 games. In 2008, he committed to soccer and played the entire season but only scored 1 goal in 31 appearances, he did not play for The Thoroughbreds after that.

Poisson summation formula

In mathematics, the Poisson summation formula is an equation that relates the Fourier series coefficients of the periodic summation of a function to values of the function's continuous Fourier transform. The periodic summation of a function is defined by discrete samples of the original function's Fourier transform, and conversely, the periodic summation of a function's Fourier transform is defined by discrete samples of the original function. The Poisson summation formula was discovered by Siméon Denis Poisson and is sometimes called Poisson resummation. For appropriate functions f, the Poisson summation formula may be stated as: With the substitution, g ≜ f, the Fourier transform property, F = 1 P ⋅ g ^, Eq.1 becomes: With another definition, s ≜ g, the transform property F = s ^ ⋅ e i 2 π ν t, Eq.2 becomes a periodic summation and its equivalent Fourier series: Similarly, the periodic summation of a function's Fourier transform has this Fourier series equivalent: where T represents the time interval at which a function s is sampled, 1 / T is the rate of samples/sec.

Let f = e − a x for 0 ≤ x and f = 0 for x < 0 to get coth ⁡ = x ∑ n ∈ Z 1 x 2 + π 2 n 2 = 1 x + 2 x ∑ n ∈ Z + 1 x 2 + π 2 n 2, It can be used to prove the functional equation for the theta function Poisson's summation formula appears in Ramanujan's notebooks and can be used to prove some of his formulas, in particular it can be used to prove one of the formulas in Ramanujan's first letter to Hardy It can be used to calculate the quadratic Gauss sum These equations can be interpreted in the language of distributions for a function f whose derivatives are all decreasing. Using the Dirac comb distribution and its Fourier series: In other words, the periodization of a Dirac delta δ, resulting in a Dirac comb, corresponds to the discretization of its spectrum, one. Hence, this again is a Dirac comb but with reciprocal increments. Eq.1 follows: ∑ k = − ∞ ∞ f ^ = ∑ k = − ∞ ∞ = ∫ − ∞ ∞ f ⏟ ∑ n =
