Court TV Mystery

Court TV Mystery is an American free-to-air television network owned by the Katz Broadcasting subsidiary of the E. W. Scripps Company, it focuses on mystery and crime programming. It is available in several media markets via the digital subchannels of terrestrial television stations and on the digital tiers of select cable providers through a local affiliate of the network, it competes with digital multicast networks such as Ion Television, This TV, Movies!, getTV. Katz Broadcasting announced the formation of Escape and sister network Grit on April 3, 2014, with a formal launch scheduled for that summer; when the network was first announced, Katz Broadcasting entered into an affiliation agreement with Univision Communications, which planned to launch Grit in 22 markets served by a station owned by the group or operated through local marketing agreements with Entravision Communications – giving Grit affiliates in 17 of the 20 largest U. S. television markets. The network sought carriage on the digital subchannels of television stations owned by other broadcasting companies.

On August 11, 2014, Katz announced that the two networks would launch on August 18. Escape launched at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time on that date, with the 1981 film Body Heat as the network's inaugural broadcast. On August 1, 2017, in an expansion of the company's existing interest, the E. W. Scripps Company announced it would purchase a 95% majority stake in Katz Broadcasting's assets for $292 million. Although Scripps assumed ownership of the group upon the purchase's completion on October 2, Katz will remain headquartered in Marietta, Georgia as an autonomous division of its new corporate parent. On September 30, 2019, Escape was rebranded as Court TV Mystery, serving as an extension to the Court TV brand. Court TV Mystery features a mix of theatrically released feature films focusing on the crime drama and mystery genres, as well as off-network reality-based crime re-enactment series. Katz Broadcasting president and CEO Jonathan Katz based the demographic-targeted concept of the formerly-named Escape and Grit networks after Bounce TV, a network Katz co-founded with Martin Luther King III and Andrew Young in 2011, targeted at African American audiences.

With the 2019 rebranding, the network has shed its original "female-centric" model. The now-folded digital broadcast network Tuff TV began operations in 2008 with a program format aimed at male viewers. Court TV Mystery carries a broad roster of crime drama and mystery movie releases from the 1980s to the 2000s on Sundays afternoons; the network's film lineup relies on an extensive library of titles through multi-year program licensing agreements with several major film studios, including Reel One Entertainment, Multicom Entertainment Group, Sonar Entertainment, Warner Bros. Pictures, Universal Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment; the majority of Court TV Mystery's schedule consists of off-network reality-based crime re-enactment series. Shortly before the network's launch, on August 1, 2014, the network acquired the syndication rights to three true crime series – Forensic Files and the Dennis Farina run of Unsolved Mysteries – through respective deals with Trifecta Entertainment & Media, NBCUniversal Television Distribution, Cosgrove/Meurer Productions for its initial schedule.

In May 2016, the network acquired the syndication rights to American Greed and Corrupt Crimes, under agreements with NBCUniversal Television Distribution and Bellum Entertainment. In conjunction, Katz announced the network's entry into original programming by entering into a production agreement with Bellum to develop five true crime shows for first-run broadcast on the network. Among the five announced shows, only Deep Undercover aired, due to various issues which did not involve Escape or Katz, but Bellum unable to produce the shows because of issues paying talent for their productions, their refusal to continue working with Bellum-produced productions. On December 6, 2017, Katz signed a multi-year licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution to acquire the syndication rights to Cold Case; the 2003–10 CBS crime drama – the first scripted program acquisition for Escape – joined the network on January 1, 2018 with a twelve-episode marathon, before being added to its regular schedule the following night.

Several other series, including John Doe, Killer Instinct, the original Law & Order have since been picked up by the network, along with DaVinci's Inquest, a mainstay of syndication since the mid-2000s. As of January 1, 2018, Court T

Jim Burgess remixed it for a single, edited to just over eight minutes; the ballad "You and I", has become a wedding day favourite in Canada. Unlike the North American albums, the French releases of Rough Diamond and Cheri had gatefold sleeves. In addition, the American mix of "Forbidden Love" is different from that released in other countries; the track "I Want You, Need You, Love You" was omitted from the North American release.

West Angelas mine

The West Angelas mine is an iron ore mine located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 110 kilometres North West of Newman. The mine is owned by Robe River Iron Associates and operated by Rio Tinto Iron Ore and is one of twelve iron ore mines the company operates in the Pilbara. In the calendar year 2009, the combined Pilbara operations produced 202 million tonnes of iron ore, a 15 percent increase from 2008; the Pilbara operations accounted for 13 percent of the world's 2009 iron ore production of 1.59 billion tonnes. The Hamersley Range, where the mine is located, contains 80 percent of all identified iron ore reserves in Australia and is one of the world's major iron ore provinces. Rio Tinto's iron ore operations in the Pilbara began in 1966; the mine itself began operations in 2002. The mine has an annual production capacity of 29.5 million tonnes of iron ore, sourced from open-pit operations. The ore is processed on site before being loaded onto rail. Ore from the mine is transported to the coast through the Hamersley & Robe River railway, where it is loaded onto ships.

Ore from West Angelas, like from Mesa J, is taken to Cape Lambert by rail to be exported as fines. The fines have a maximum size of 9.5 mm. The mine's workforce is on a fly-in fly-out roster. In the calendar year 2009, the mine employed 989 people, an increase in comparison to 2008, when it only employed 867. West Angelas is the site of Rio Tinto's "Mine of the future" project; the mine operates automated trucks, automated rockbreakers, automated drills and blasts, which are controlled from a Perth operations centre rather than local operators on site. Robe River Iron, owner of the mine, is jointly owned by the following companies: Rio Tinto Group - 53% - operator Mitsui and Co. Ltd - 33% Nippon Steel Australia Pty Ltd - 10.5% Sumitomo Metal Australia Pty Ltd - 3.5%Robe River Iron operates the West Angelas, Mesa A and Mesa J mines. Rio Tinto acquired its share of 53 % in late 2000. Rio Tinto Iron Ore website MINEDEX website Database of the Department of Mines and Petroleum

Playa de Las Teresitas

The Playa de Las Teresitas is an artificial, white sand, tourist beach located north of the village of San Andrés, Santa Cruz de Tenerife in Tenerife, Spain. The area of the beach consisted of stone and rocks, with a small strip of black sand, it was divided into three distinct parts that had different names: Tras la Arena, closest to San Andrés. There was a private spa in the middle of the beach, the area was used for surfing. Above the beach were farms and orchards, growing bananas, mangoes and avocados, that provided the town with most of its income at the time. There is an important paleontological site of the Quaternary, it is a submarine reservoir in a submerged beach 400 square meters. It contains some endemic. In the 1950s, various beaches in the Santa Cruz area were disappearing as their sand was being used for construction, the Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife expanded in their place. In 1953, constructing an artificial beach at San Andrés was considered by the Ayuntamiento de Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The initial plan was approved in 1961, engineers Pompeyo Alonso and Miguel Pintor created a full design for the new beach. It was approved by the city council in 1965, the Spanish ministry in 1967; the expansion of the beach to a width of 80 metres required the compulsory purchase of the farms above the beach, as well as reducing the height of parts of the area, including the removal of part of the ravine. In 1968, the breakwater was constructed, with a length of 1 kilometre. Two piers, an underwater cutting step, were constructed, in order to prevent waves from carrying sand out to sea, make the beach safer for bathers; the beach is around 1.3 kilometres long. At the time, buying black local sand was too expensive due to its scarcity, so importing white Sahara Desert sand from the Western Sahara was investigated; the white sand was more appealing for tourists. In 1971, the city council obtained a loan of 50 million pesetas, purchased 150,000 cubic metres of sand, weighing around 270,000 tons, from the El Aaiún region.

It was transported by the company Fosfatos de Bucraa, 5 million bags of sand arrived in the ship Gopegui. It was used to fill the beach in the first half of 1973 to create the artificial beach of white sand, which opened on 15 June 1973, although with initial problems due to red ants and scorpions that were imported along with the sand; the current set of kiosks were constructed at the same time. The white sand is lighter than the native black sand; this makes it easier for the wind to blow them off the beach. The changes to the ravine increased the local windspeed; the breakwater reduced the waves, which reduced the removal of sand by the waves, but its replacement by waves. Not much sand is removed by rainfall, as there isn't much in the region, but human impact is significant; the beach is cleaned and smoothed. Between April and November 1998, another 2,800 tonnes of Saharan sand was added to replenish that lost in the beach's 25 first years of existence; the new sand cost 400 million pesetas.

It is one of the most popular beaches of the Canary Islands, is one of the few on Tenerife that do not have the black, volcanic sand that most of the rest of the Canary Islands have. Others such as Las Vistas, in Los Cristianos, are artificial, but the beach at El Médano is natural; the Playa de Las Teresitas was chosen for the promotional spot for the third season of the reality show, Geordie Shore, "Chaos in Cancún". The beach has parking for over 100 cars, as well as a bus service, it has a paddle area.

Ellis v. United States of America (1969)

Ellis v. United States of America, 416 F.2d 791, is a case decided by the United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit, in 1969. It addressed the question of a witness's refusal to testify on Fifth Amendment grounds; the court concluded that when a non-indicted witness who has waived their Fifth Amendment privilege by testifying voluntarily before a grand jury and with knowledge of their privilege, their waiver extends to a subsequent trial based on an indictment returned by the grand jury that heard their testimony. At around midnight of August 1, 1967, in the District of Columbia, police officers arrested three suspects named Izzard and James H. Ellis, Jr; the latter two were carrying molotov cocktails. A fourth suspect, Alfred M. Watkins, escaped but was taken into custody. According to Izzard's testimony before the original trial's grand jury, Ellis had shattered a window with a rock, Jackson threw two molotov cocktails through the window, Watkins had thrown a third molotov cocktail, which started a fire in the store.

The four men had created six more molotov cocktails with the intention of starting another fire, but the police intervened before they could do so. At the original trial and Watkins were convicted of arson and of possessing a lethal weapon; the appellants and Watkins, filed an appeal in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. It was argued on December 13, 1968, decided on April 30, 1969; the judges were John A. Danaher, J. Skelly Wright, Harold Leventhal. Ellis and Watkins sought reversal at the appellate level on the ground that the trial judge had erred in compelling Izzard's testimony. At first, after being advised of his right against self-incrimination, Izzard had declined to testify, but the prosecutor had urged that Izzard be compelled to testify, noting that he had waived his privilege before the grand jury and arguing that there could be no prejudice if Izzard repeated his testimony for the record; the judge, while rejecting the contention that the waiver of privilege before the grand jury applied as well to subsequent proceedings, concluded, on the basis of Murphy v. Waterfront Commission, that there was no reason not to compel Izzard's testimony.

Leventhal, with Danaher agreeing, declined to reverse the trial judge's verdict, because although the judge, in their view, had erred by citing Murphy, his decision to compel Izzard to testify was nonetheless sustainable on the grounds that Izzard had testified before the grand jury. Leventhal held that the trial judge had erred in requiring Izzard to testify on the basis of Murphy v. Waterfront Commission, had erred in rejecting the prosecutor's argument that the claim of privilege at trial could be overruled in view of Izzard's voluntary grand jury testimony. While Murphy did protect the witness, according to Leventhal, the trial judge's ruling had amounted to “a circular, self-fulfilling prophecy” that in effect constituted “a grant of immunity”, “outside the scope of judicial authority.” Further, Leventhal maintained, the appellants did, contrary to the original judge's ruling, have standing to object to the judge's usurpation of prerogative. Leventhal emphasized the “need for a stern restraint on judges to stay within the judicial province.”

While a defendant does not, as a rule, “have standing to complain of an erroneous ruling on the scope of the privilege of a witness,” a defendant may “complain that his conviction was obtained in a case where the trial judge went outside his judicial province to grant immunity to a witness.” In support of this assertion, Leventhal cited Griswold v. Connecticut. Leventhal summed up his position by saying that “a witness who voluntarily testifies before a grand jury without invoking the privilege against self-incrimination, of which he has been advised, waives the privilege and may not thereafter claim it when he is called to testify as a witness at the trial on the indictment returned by the grand jury, where the witness is not the defendant, or under indictment.” Judge Danaher concurred in Part C of Judge Leventhal's opinion, agreeing that the convictions of Ellis and Watkins should be affirmed, but disagreed with the statements about Izzard made by Leventhal in Parts A and B of his opinion.

“As a companion in the crime of arson, directly participating with these appellants in the events leading to their apprehension and conviction,” wrote Danaher, “Izzard owed the public duty to testify which every person within the jurisdiction of government is bound to perform.” Danaher emphasized that it was not Izzard but the appellants who had lodged a complaint claiming “that his rights became their rights, that a violation of his rights requires a reversal of their convictions.” This was unacceptable, argued Danaher, because “Where the witness is not the party, the party may not claim the privilege nor take advantage of an error of the court in overruling it.” In contrast to Judge Danaher, Judge Wright agreed with Parts A and B of Leventhal's opinion, but dissented from Part C and the judgment of affirmance. His view was that “the Fifth Amendment not only protects against the risk of prosecution on evidence extorted from the defendant, but establishes a right to abstain from the demeaning ritual of public self-accusation.”

He quoted Justice Douglas's statement, in a dissent on Ullmann v. United States, that the Fifth Amendment “protects the conscience and the dignity of the individual, as well as his safety and security, against the compulsion of government.” Noting that Izzard had “waive his right to silence in the privacy of the grand jury hearing” but asserted it in open court, Wright stated that “he different circumstances of the two proceedings make his decision explicable in terms of those consi
