United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates, sometimes called the Emirates, is a country in Western Asia at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing maritime borders with Qatar to the west and Iran to the north. The sovereign constitutional monarchy is a federation of seven emirates consisting of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain, their boundaries are complex, with numerous enclaves within the various emirates. Each emirate is governed by a ruler. One of the rulers serves as the President of the United Arab Emirates. In 2013, the UAE's population was 9.2 million, of which 1.4 million are Emirati citizens and 7.8 million are expatriates. Human occupation of the present UAE has been traced back to the emergence of anatomically modern humans from Africa some 125,000 BCE through finds at the Faya-1 site in Mleiha, Sharjah. Burial sites dating back to the Neolithic Age and the Bronze Age include the oldest known such inland site at Jebel Buhais.
Known as Magan to the Sumerians, the area was home to a prosperous Bronze Age trading culture during the Umm Al Nar period, which traded between the Indus Valley and Mesopotamia as well as Iran and the Levant. The ensuing Wadi Suq period and three Iron Ages saw the emergence of nomadism as well as the development of water management and irrigation systems supporting human settlement in both the coast and interior; the Islamic age of the UAE dates back to the expulsion of the Sasanians and the subsequent Battle of Dibba. The UAE's long history of trade led to the emergence of Julfar, in the present day emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, as a major regional trading and maritime hub in the area; the maritime dominance of the Persian Gulf by Emirati traders led to conflicts with European powers, including the Portuguese and British. Following decades of maritime conflict, the coastal emirates became known as the Trucial States with the signing of a Perpetual Treaty of Maritime Peace with the British in 1819, which established the Trucial States as a British Protectorate.
This arrangement ended with independence and the establishment of the United Arab Emirates on 2 December 1971 following the British withdrawal from its treaty obligations. Six emirates joined the UAE in 1971, the seventh, Ras Al Khaimah, joined the federation on 10 February 1972. Islam is the official religion and Arabic is the official language of the UAE; the UAE's oil reserves are the seventh-largest in the world while its natural gas reserves are the world's seventeenth-largest. Sheikh Zayed, ruler of Abu Dhabi and the first President of the UAE, oversaw the development of the Emirates and steered oil revenues into healthcare and infrastructure; the UAE's economy is the most diversified in the Gulf Cooperation Council, while its most populous city of Dubai is an important global city and an international aviation and maritime trade hub. The country is much less reliant on oil and gas than in previous years and is economically focusing on tourism and business; the UAE government does not levy income tax although there is a system of corporate tax in place and value added tax was established in 2018 at 5%.
The UAE's rising international profile has led to it being recognised as a regional and a middle power. It is a member of the United Nations, the Arab League, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, OPEC, the Non-Aligned Movement and the Gulf Cooperation Council; the land of the Emirates has been occupied for thousands of years. Stone tools recovered from Jebel Faya in the emirate of Sharjah reveal a settlement of people from Africa some 127,000 years ago and a stone tool used for butchering animals discovered at Jebel Barakah on the Arabian coast suggests an older habitation from 130,000 years ago. There is no proof of contact with the outside world at that stage, although in time lively trading links developed with civilisations in Mesopotamia and the Harappan culture of the Indus Valley; this contact persisted and became wide-ranging motivated by the trade in copper from the Hajar Mountains, which commenced around 3,000 BCE. Sumerian sources talk of the UAE as home to Magan people. There are six major periods of human settlement with distinctive behaviours in the pre-Islamic UAE, which includes the Hafit period from 3,200-2,600 BCE.
From 1,200 BC to the advent of Islam in Eastern Arabia, through three distinctive Iron Ages and the Mleiha period, the area was variously occupied by Achaemenid and other forces and saw the construction of fortified settlements and extensive husbandry thanks to the development of the falaj irrigation system. In ancient times, Al Hasa adjoined Greater Oman. From the second century AD, there was a movement of tribes from Al Bahreyn towards the lower Gulf, together with a migration among the Azdite Qahtani and Quda'ah tribal groups from south-west Arabia towards central Oman; the spread of Islam to the North Eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula is thought to have followed directly from a letter sent by the Islamic prophet, Muhammad, to the rulers of Oman in 630 AD, nine years after the hijrah. This led to a group of rulers travelling to Medina, converting to Islam and subsequently driving a successful u
Anabel (Brazilian TV series)
Anabel is a Brazilian flash animated series created by Lancast Mota and produced by Sergio Martinelli. It was the first Brazilian animated series on Nickelodeon Brazil when it debuted on February 26, 2005 in the channel's Nick Patrol program; as of 2006 the show was exclusive to the channel TV Rá-Tim-Bum, where the second season premiered on February 5, 2011. The show runs on TV Brasil. A comic strip adaptation ran on the children's magazine Recreio. Set in the 1930s, the show revolves on a girl named Anabel, who lives with her unnamed parents in the city of Porto Alegre, she goes to school by riding the city's tramcars. On occasion Anabel travels to fantastical and supernatural adventures from literary novels, encountering monsters and creatures, she solves mysteries and stops dangers in the city. The second season introduces the character Ulisses. Anabel – The 7-year-old protagonist of the show, she enjoys listening to radio dramas and reading fiction books from many authors including Edgar Allan Poe.
She's named after the titular figure in Poe's poem "Annabel Lee." Anabel's parents – The protagonist's unnamed parents. The father is a pharmacist and the mother is a history teacher. Ulisses – Anabel's best friend, overweight, his work and help to his friend sometimes fail. Theo - A magical crow, friend of Anabel and Ulysses, he is able to create gates to other worlds. Inspetor Carangueijo – A detective based in Porto Alegre, he and Anabel cooperate each other to track down a toy thief in the episode "O Homem Fornalha." Lancast Mota developed the concept of Anabel in the 1990s. He picked the 1930s as the time setting of the series due to its distinctive popular culture field placed apart from electronic-driven media of the present day, which includes television and videogames. Mota and his team wanted the show to take advantage of creative presentations not utilized in other animated works, including but not limited to strong literary themes and a lack of violence. Mota avoided cliches seen in such other animated works, such as adding "a villain who wants to take over the world."
The team made the protagonist motivated by non-visual media such as books and radio, prevalent in the 1930s. The show was financed by the Rouanet Law and TV Cultura in 2000. Anabel on IMDb TV Rá-Tim-Bum description Character page Martinelli webpage TV Brasil page

Destination America is an American pay television channel, owned by Discovery Inc. The network first launched in 1996 as Discovery Travel & Living Network, as part of a suite of four digital cable networks the company launched that year. From its launch until 2008, the network focused upon home improvement and leisure-themed programs. In 2008, the network re-launched as Planet Green, which carried a focus on environmentalism and sustainable living. Planet Green was considered a failure. In May 2012, the channel re-launched as Destination America, which featured programming focused on American culture—including food and travel. In 2016, the channel increased its focus on reality series devoted to paranormal topics and investigations; as of February 2015 57,238,000 American households receive Destination America. The space was used for one of the four digital cable networks launched by Discovery Communications in 1996; the new networks were first announced in November 1994, with a launch planned for Spring 1995.
At the time, the network had the working title Living and was described as "a home repair network". The launch was delayed, the channel made its debut in October 1996 known as Discovery Travel & Living and offering programming including do-it-yourself projects, interior design and landscaping, party planning. By 1998, it had settled on the name Discovery Home & Leisure, but the "Leisure" part of the name was dropped on March 29, 2004, when the channel became Discovery Home. Much of the travel-related programming was dropped in the process to provide more focus on home improvement and cooking. Facing increased competition in the home-oriented programming sector, Discovery Communications planned a 24-hour channel focused on eco-friendly living in an attempt to capitalize on a rising environmental movement. Discovery Home was relaunched as the environmentally-themed Planet Green at 6:00 p.m. ET on June 4, 2008; the channel focused on environmental issues and ecological living, Discovery invested $50 million in original programming for the rebranded channel with shows such as a weekly eco-newscast series with Bob Woodruff of ABC News.
The project began after the Discovery Channel bought the website Treehugger.com from owners Graham Hill and Ken Rother. At its launch, Planet Green was available in 50 million U. S. households and included 250 hours of environment-related programming with a programming budget of US$50 million. In March 2010, Planet Green's programming was broadened to include non-ecology themed shows. Discovery chief executive David Zaslav stated in a conference call with investors "We think we can do something else with that that would be more meaningful." Shortly thereafter the channel had abandoned its theme, rerunning programs from other Discovery Communications channels and featuring programming blocks such as "Paranormal Fridays". Discovery announced a probable rebranding of the channel by the start of the summer of 2012. On April 4, 2012, Discovery announced through the early release of an article in USA Today that Planet Green would be re-branded as Destination America, a network focusing on cuisine, natural history, travel programming appealing towards Middle America.
The launch lineup featured programs that had aired on Travel Channel before its sale to Cox Communications. The channel was expected to have a Memorial Day launch on May 28, 2012. In 2015, TNA partnered with Discovery Communications to air the promotion's programming on Destination America, including Impact Wrestling; that year, the network announced that it had signed a 26-week television deal for Ring of Honor's weekly show, Ring of Honor Wrestling, which would begin on June 3, 2015. Impact moved to Pop in January 2016; the March 4, 2016 premiere of Paranormal Lockdown was among the highest-rated series premieres in the channel's history. In response to the success of Paranormal Lockdown, Destination America began to increase its focus on programs dealing with paranormal topics and investigations; the network underwent a rebranding in 2017, with on-air presentation carrying a darker and "uneasy" atmosphere to reflect its change in programming direction. Sometime during the summer of 2018, Destination America still continued to air programming that airs on morning blocks on sister network Discovery Channel.
Sometime in September 2018, Destination America is returning to its previous programming format with the addition of Georgia Pellegrini's show Wild Food, as well as re-adding shows from network's past and adding shows borrowed from its sister networks. Destination America will still keep its current focus on paranormal programming, although its now sister network Travel Channel is drifting to that similar format. Planet Green programming included ecologically themed shows built around celebrities including Ed Begley, Jr. Emeril Lagasse, Adrian Grenier, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tommy Lee, Tom Bergeron, SuChin Pak, Maria Menounos, Bob Woodruff, Discovery Channel producer Tom Golden.

The Berenstain Bears is a children's literature franchise created by Stan and Jan Berenstain and continued by their son, Mike Berenstain, who assumed partial authorship in 2002, full authorship in 2012 following Jan's death. The books feature a family of anthropomorphic grizzly bears who learn a moral or safety-related lesson in the course of each story. Since the 1962 debut of the first Berenstain Bears book, The Big Honey Hunt, the series has grown to over 300 titles, which have sold 260 million copies in 23 languages; the Berenstain Bears franchise has expanded well beyond the books, encompassing two television series and a wide variety of other products and licenses. While enjoying decades of popularity and receiving numerous awards, the series has been criticized for its perceived saccharine tone and formulaic storytelling. Stanley Berenstain and Janice Grant met in 1941, on their first day of drawing class at the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Art, where they formed an immediate bond.
After being separated during World War II, during which Stan worked for the Army as a medical illustrator and Janice worked as a riveter, they were reunited and married in 1946. While working as art teachers, the Berenstains pursued a joint career in cartooning and found success working together on illustrations, humorous sketches and cover art for publications including The Saturday Review of Literature, Collier's, McCall's, Good Housekeeping, The Saturday Evening Post. In 1951, they published Berenstains' Baby Book, a humorous how-to aimed at adults and based on their experiences raising their infant son Leo in downtown Philadelphia. Nearly two dozen other books followed. In the early 1960s, the Berenstains sought to enter the field of writing for young children. For their first children's book, they chose to cast bears as the main characters because the animal held wide appeal and could be drawn easily. Stan observed that female bears are "terrifyingly good mothers" while the males are "lousy fathers."
In their 2002 memoir, they said that they knew from the start that their book would "have three characters: a bluff, overenthusiastic Papa Bear who wore bib overalls and a plaid shirt and...a wise Mama Bear who wore a blue dress with white polka dots...and a bright, lively little cub."The Berenstains' first bear story, titled Freddy Bear's Spanking, arrived on the desk of Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, who had found phenomenal success in 1957 with The Cat in the Hat and was now editor of a Random House series called "Beginner Books". Geisel took on the manuscript, but spent the next two years ruthlessly challenging the Berenstains to make improvements to the writing and structure and to connect with their characters on a deeper level, he asked questions such as "What kind of pipe tobacco does Papa Bear smoke?" and urged them to analyze the relationship between Papa Bear and Small Bear, to which Stan responded, mystified, "Well, he's the father, he's the son". The book was published in 1962 under the title The Big Honey Hunt, with no plans to revisit the bears in a sequel.
Geisel had told the Berenstains to feature a different animal in their next story, as "there are too many bears... Sendak's got some kind of bear. There's Yogi Bear, the Three Bears, Smokey Bear, the Chicago Bears... for your next book you should do something as different from bears as possible." They had started work on a new project featuring a penguin when Geisel called and told them: "We're selling the hell out of the bear book." The second bear book, The Bike Lesson, appeared in 1964, featuring the names Stan and Jan Berenstain instead of Stanley and Janice. Geisel was responsible for adding the name "Berenstain Bears" to the covers of succeeding books. Over the next several decades and Jan collaborated on hundreds of books from their home studio outside Philadelphia. After developing a storyline together, one of them would develop a first draft, which the other would refine into an 1100-word manuscript, they worked together on the illustrations. In 2002, the couple released a memoir of their career titled Down A Sunny Dirt Road.
Their sons Leo and Mike entered the family business after making their own forays into children's publishing as an author and illustrator, respectively. In the 1990s, the men worked on the Berenstain Bears "Big Chapter Book" series. Following Stan's death from lymphoma in 2005, Mike collaborated with his mother on writing and illustrating Berenstain Bears installments, while Leo has been involved with the business side of the franchise. Jan Berenstain died in February 2012 following a stroke. Mike Berenstain continues to illustrate new books in the series; the Berenstain Bears, who reside "in a big treehouse down a sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country," consists of Papa Bear, an oafish, bumbling carpenter. Sister Bear was introduced in the 1974 book The Berenstain Bears' New Baby in response to requests from female readers. Honey Bear's imminent arrival was announced in early 2000 in The Birds, the Bees, the Berenstain Bears, along with a reader contest to name the new bear.
