A meeting is when two or more people come together to discuss one or more topics in a formal or business setting, but meetings occur in a variety of other environments. Many various types of meetings exist. A meeting is a gathering of two or more people, convened for the purpose of achieving a common goal through verbal interaction, such as sharing information or reaching agreement. Meetings may occur face-to-face or as mediated by communications technology, such as a telephone conference call, a skyped conference call or a videoconference. One Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a meeting as "an act or process of coming together" - for example "as an assembly for a common purpose ". Meeting planners and other meeting professionals may use the term "meeting" to denote an event booked at a hotel, convention center or any other venue dedicated to such gatherings; the term "meeting" may refer to a lecture, conference, exhibition or trade show, training course, team-building session and kick-off event.
Common types of meeting include: Committee meeting, a coming-together of a defined subset of an organization Investigative meeting when conducting a pre-interview, exit interview or a meeting among the investigator and representative Kickoff meeting, the first meeting with a project team and the client of the project to discuss the role of each team-member Town hall meeting, an informal public gathering. Work meeting, which produces a product or intangible result such as a decision. Board meeting, a meeting of the board of directors of an organization Management meeting, a meeting among managers Staff meeting a meeting between a manager and those that report to that manager Team meeting, in project contexts - a meeting among colleagues working on various aspects of a team project. Other varieties include breakfast meetings off-site meetings, "stand-up meetings" where participants stand up to encourage brevity. Since a meeting can be held once or the meeting organizer has to determine the repetition and frequency of occurrence of the meeting: one-time， recurring meeting， or a series meeting such as a monthly "lunch and learn" event at a company, club or organization in which the placeholder is the same, but the agenda and topics to be covered vary.
In Russian, a "flying meeting" is a hastily-called brief meeting. Johansen, Robert. "Electronic Meetings: Technical Alternatives". ACM Digital Library. Retrieved October 1, 2018. Olson, Gary M..

Dates (TV series)
Dates is a British television romantic drama series created by Bryan Elsley, who created Skins, which first aired on Channel 4 on 10 June 2013, at 22:00, as part of its "Mating Season" programming, illustrating a series of first dates between online dating service users. The show's target audience is "ABC1". Set in London, each episode focuses on one date. Creator Bryan Elsley conceived the idea of Dates between December 2011 and January 2012, stating "a date is a complex and grown up interaction between two people. It's a complex language. Everyone knows the difficulty of spending an hour or so in someone's company that you haven't met before, it seemed to be that there was an infinite range of possibilities that could flow from that. So it became attractive". Dates was commissioned and approved by Channel 4 in September 2012. Dates was filmed in London during the first quarter of 2013. Will Mellor as David Oona Chaplin as Mia Sheridan Smith as Jenny Neil Maskell as Nick Ben Chaplin as Stephen Katie McGrath as Kate Gemma Chan as Erica Montanna Thompson as Ellie Greg McHugh as Callum Sian Breckin as Heidi Andrew Scott as Christian Jamie Di Spirito as JasonDates features numerous up-and-coming and more established British and Irish actors and actresses.
To promote the series and to provide further background knowledge, Channel 4 has created a series of fake online dating profiles for each of the main characters. Dates has been critically well received thus far. Tom Sutcliffe from The Independent wrote, "the writer who wants to leave an impression behind will always be tugged towards a gratifying finish. Credit due to Bryan Elsley for ending the first of Dates, a series of dramas about modern relationships, with an ambiguity". Of the first episode, Gerard O'Donovan of The Telegraph wrote, "It was enjoyable, I didn't just want more, I couldn't wait to see how successive episodes would link and weave into a format so unforgivingly dependent on great writing and acting. Suffice to say, in a game of snog, marry or avoid, Dates is a keeper". Lucy Mangan of The Guardian called the first episode "a little nugget of bliss" and commended the show for its realism and its "beauty" in its screenplay and acting. Paul Naylor of Express & Star deemed that the execution of the first episode was "classy".
Of the first three episodes, The Scotsman wrote, "Elsley is attempting to say something meaningful about the guises we adopt at our most vulnerable and desperate. It's an unedifying portrait of human nature at somewhere near its worst: a cynical blast of rotten candour. Whether Elsley and his fellow writers like their characters is a moot point, but I can't deny the voyeuristic impact of these superbly performed chamber pieces". Writing for The Spectator, Clarissa Tan said that the show's "smartness gets wearying after a while", she criticised episode four on the basis that a lesbian coming out narrative "is quite thin as plots go, but not as thin as the sheets that she and her new lover Kate are under for most of the show". Tan concluded that the characters are "tropes rather than people", "a congregation of characteristic, a multitude of attitudes". In Australia, the series premiered on 16 February 2015 on BBC First and was watched by 21,000 viewers; the CW aired nine episodes of the show in 2015.

The Date clan is a Japanese samurai kin group. The Date family was founded in the early Kamakura period by Isa Tomomune who came from the Isa district of Hitachi Province, was a descendant of Fujiwara no Uona in the sixteenth generation; the family took its name from the Date district of Mutsu Province, awarded in 1189 to Isa Tomomune by Minamoto no Yoritomo, the first Kamakura shōgun, for his assistance in the Genpei War and in Minamoto no Yoritomo's struggle for power with his brother, Minamoto no Yoshitsune. During the Nanboku-chō Wars in the 1330s, the Date supported the Imperial Southern Court of Emperor Go-Daigo through Kitabatake Akiie, appointed by the Emperor Chinjufu Shōgun or Commander in Chief of the Defense of the North; as warlords gained and lost power in the Sengoku period, trying to unite the country, the Date, along with a handful of other powerful families, did all they could to retain independence and dominance over their section of the land. Though not gaining the fame or power of the likes of Oda Nobunaga, Uesugi Kenshin, or Toyotomi Hideyoshi, they resisted the invasions of these warlords into the north.
Date Masamune contributed in particular to this effort, consolidating the families of the north into alliances against the major warlords. In 1589, Masamune with the help of former Ashina's samurai, Inawashiro Morikuni, seized the Aizu Domain of the Ashina at the Battle of Suriagehara. However, the following year, Hideyoshi triumphed over the Hōjo of Odawara. Masamune gained some degree of independence by supporting Tokugawa Ieyasu. Ieyasu granted the Date much of the north, yet the Date were not trusted. Despite the Date contribution of reinforcements for the Tokugawa during the battle of Sekigahara, the Date were viewed as a threat. In the Edo period, the Date were identified as one of the tozama or outsider clans, in contrast with the fudai or insider daimyō clans which were hereditary vassals or allies of the Tokugawa clan. In 1600, Ieyasu charged the Date to fight against Uesugi Kagekatsu. In recognition of this success in battle, Masamune was granted the fiefs in twelve districts, held until that time by the Uesugi clan.
The Date established themselves at Sendai. By 1658, Masamune changed the name of the Uesugi's castle at Iwatezawa to Sendai Castle; the feudal daimyō were sometimes identified with the suffix "-kō", preceded by the name of a place or a castle, e.g. Sendai-kō was one of the names by which Date Masamune was known. Succession disputes erupted. In 1660, Date Tsunamune was arrested for drunkenness and debauchery. Tsunamune was condemned to excavate the moats. In 1660, he was ordered to supervise and pay for enhancing the north-east moat running from Megane-bashi to the Ushigome gate; the initial charges of licentious living are now believed to have been encouraged by certain vassals and kinsmen in the north. These vassals and kinsmen appealed to the Council of Elders in Edo that Tsunamune should not be considered fit to rule, that his son Date Tsunamura, great-grandson of Masamune, should become the daimyō of the Date han. Thus, Tsunamura became daimyō, under the guardianship of Date Munekatsu and Muneyoshi.
Ten years of violence and conflict followed in the north, reaching a climax in 1671 when Aki Muneshige, a powerful relative of the Date, complained to the shogunate of the mismanagement of the fief under Tsunamura and his uncles. The episode that followed is so complex and dramatic as to warrant becoming a well-known story known as the Date Sōdō and a theatrical play as well. Aki was summoned to Edo to argue his case before various councils and officials, was involved in a number of interrogations and meetings, as were several other retainers of the Date. One retainer in particular, Harada Munesuke, was a supporter of Tsunamura and his uncles and, it is said, made a poor impression at Edo. At one point, Aki came upon Harada waiting to meet with some of the officials, Aki began shouting insults. Swords were drawn, Aki was killed. Harada was killed moments by the officials or their guards; the official verdict was. Though the Date are most well known for their power in the north, Date Hidemune, the second son of Masamune, enjoyed a fief of 100,000 koku on Shikoku.

Phoenix dactylifera known as date or date palm, is a flowering plant species in the palm family, cultivated for its edible sweet fruit. Although its exact place of origin is uncertain because of long cultivation, it originated from the Fertile Crescent region straddling between Egypt and Mesopotamia; the species is cultivated across Northern Africa, the Middle East, The Horn of Africa and South Asia, is naturalized in many tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. P. dactylifera is the type species of genus Phoenix, which contains 12–19 species of wild date palms, is the major source of commercial production. Date trees reach about 21–23 metres in height, growing singly or forming a clump with several stems from a single root system. Date fruits are oval-cylindrical, 3–7 cm long, about an inch in diameter, ranging from bright red to bright yellow in color, depending on variety, they are sweet, containing about 75 percent of sugar when dried. Dates have been the Indus Valley for thousands of years.
There is archaeological evidence of date cultivation in Arabia from the 6th millennium BCE. The total annual world production of dates amounts to 8.5 million metric tons, countries of the Middle East and North Africa being the largest producers. The species name dactylifera "date-bearing" comes from the Greek words daktylos, which means "date", fero, which means "I bear"; the fruit is known as a date. The fruit's English name, as well as the Latin both come from the Greek word for "finger", dáktulos, because of the fruit's elongated shape. Fossil records show. Dates have been the Indus Valley for thousands of years. There is archaeological evidence of date cultivation in eastern Arabia between 5530 and 5320 calBC, they are believed to have originated around what is now Iraq, have been cultivated since ancient times from Mesopotamia to prehistoric Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians used the fruits to make date wine, ate them at harvest. There is archeological evidence of date cultivation in Mehrgarh around 7000 BCE, a Neolithic civilization in what is now western Pakistan.
Evidence of cultivation is continually found throughout civilizations in the Indus Valley, including the Harappan period 2600 to 1900 BCE. In Ancient Rome the palm fronds used in triumphal processions to symbolize victory were most those of Phoenix dactylifera; the date palm was a popular garden plant in Roman peristyle gardens, though it would not bear fruit in the more temperate climate of Italy. It is recognizable in frescoes from Pompeii and elsewhere in Italy, including a garden scene from the House of the Wedding of Alexander. In times, traders spread dates around South West Asia, northern Africa, Spain. Dates were introduced into Mexico and California by the Spaniards in 1765, around Mission San Ignacio. A date palm cultivar what used to be called Judean date palm, is renowned for its long-lived orthodox seed, which sprouted after accidental storage for 2000 years; the upper survival time limit of properly stored. A genomic study from New York University Abu Dhabi Center for Genomics and Systems Biology showed that domesticated date palm varieties from North Africa, including well-known varieties such as Medjool and Deglet Noor, are a hybrid between Middle East date palms and the Cretan wild palm P. theophrasti.
Date palms appear in the archaeological record in North Africa about 2,800 years ago, suggesting that the hybrid was spread by the Minoans or Phoenicians. Date trees reach about 21–23 metres in height, growing singly or forming a clump with several stems from a single root system; the leaves are 4–6 metres long, with spines on the petiole, pinnate, with about 150 leaflets. The leaflets are 2 cm wide; the full span of the crown ranges from 6–10 m. The date palm is dioecious, having separate female plants, they can be grown from seed, but only 50% of seedlings will be female and hence fruit bearing, dates from seedling plants are smaller and of poorer quality. Most commercial plantations thus use cuttings of cropping cultivars. Plants grown from cuttings will fruit 2–3 years earlier than seedling plants. Dates are wind pollinated, but in both traditional oasis horticulture and in the modern commercial orchards they are pollinated manually. Natural pollination occurs with about an equal number of female plants.
However, with assistance, one male can pollinate up to 100 females. Since the males are of value only as pollinators, this allows the growers to use their resources for many more fruit-producing female plants; some growers do not maintain any male plants, as male flowers become available at local markets at pollination time. Manual pollination is done by use of a wind machine. In some areas such as Iraq the pollinator climbs the tree using a special climbing tool that wraps around the tree trunk and the climber's back to keep him attached to the trunk while climbing. Date fruits are oval-cylindrical, 3–7 cm long, 2–3 cm diameter, when ripe, range from bright red to bright yellow in colour, depending on variety. Dates contain a single stone about 2 -- 6 -- 8 mm thick. Three main cultivar groups of date exist: soft, semi-dry, dry; the type of fruit depends on the gluc
Mr. Houston is the fourth studio album by American R&B singer Marques Houston, it was released by MusicWorks Entertainment on September 29, 2009 in the United States, with distribution handled by Fontana, marking Houston's debut released with the label following his departure from the Universal brand in 2008. A breakaway from previous albums, the singer worked with a smaller number of collaborators on Mr. Houston, which features chief production by Noel "Detail" Fisher and Houston himself. Allmusic editor Andy Kellman rated the album two out of five stars, he found that "the disc is not the most distinctive set of the former Immature member's career, highlighted by the breezy "Express Lane" and "Stranger," where Houston is at his unassuming best."

Date City, Fukushima
Date is a city in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. As of 1 May 2018, the city had an estimated population of 61,207 in 22,590 households and a population density of 230 persons per km2; the total area of the city was 265.10 square kilometres. Date occupies the eastern half of the Fukushima Basin in northern Fukushima prefecture, with Miyagi Prefecture on its northern border; the area was once noted for sericulture. It is organized into the five former towns of Date, Yanagawa and Tsukidate, each of which retain numerous unique traditions and events. Rivers: Abukuma River, Hirose River Fukushima Prefecture Sōma Fukushima Kunimi Kawamata Koori Iitate Miyagi Prefecture Shiroishi Marumori Date has a humid climate; the average annual temperature in Date is 12.8 °C. The average annual rainfall is 1,227 mm with September as the wettest month; the temperatures are highest on average in August, at around 25.5 °C, lowest in January, at around 1.4 °C. Per Japanese census data, the population of Date has declined over the past 40 years.
The first humans to live within the bounds of present-day Date City are thought to have arrived during the Paleolithic Period. The area was part of ancient Mutsu Province. Towards the end of the Heian Period, Shinobu-gun and Date-gun were awarded to Date Tomomune. In Date City's town of Hobara, Tomomune founded the Date clan, which rose to prominence from the Kamakura period; the 17th lord of the Date Clan, Date Masamune lost control of the area and went on to found the Sendai Clan and the City of Sendai. The clan continued to rule over the Sendai Domain during the Edo period. Under the Edo period Tokugawa shogunate, most of the area of Date was part of Yonezawa Domain, followed by Fukushima Domain and Yanagawa Domain before becoming tenryō territory under direct control of the shogunate, it was not part of the Date Clan's territories. After the Meiji Restoration, the area was organized as part of Nakadōri region of Iwaki Province; as of 1889, the area consisted of villages. Between the years 1955 and 1960, these were consolidated into the five towns of Date, Hobara, Ryōzen and Yanagawa, which merged to create the modern city of Date on January 1, 2006.
A whole body skeleton of Paleoparadoxia was excavated in Yanagawa on August 21, 1984. The skeleton is named the “Yanagawa Specimen”. Date is about 60 kilometres north-west of Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, the site of the nuclear accident that followed the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Although outside the nuclear accident exclusion zone, the levels of radiation in the city caused residents, children, to remain indoors. Date has a mayor-council form of government with a directly elected mayor and a unicameral city legislature of 25 members; the economy of Date is agricultural, with an emphasis on rice and horticulture. The area dried persimmons. Taiyo Yuden operates a CD and DVD production plant in the Yanagawa Industrial Zone in Date, Fukushima; as sericulture lost its place in the area during the Taisho Era, the former village of Isazawa in Yanagawa replaced it with the production of dried persimmons, among other industries. Dried persimmons had been produced in the area since the Edo Period.
However, the addition of sulfur fumigation as was used in the production of raisins in the United States, allowed for a much sweeter product. Whereas traditional dried persimmons, have a tough skin and are black in color, those created with the additional step of sulfur fumigation, called anpogaki or tsurushigaki, are soft and bright orange. Although the production of anpogaki was halted for three years after the 2011 disaster, Date City's persimmon orchards have since been decontaminated and testing machines have been installed, ensuring the safety of the final product. Date has 22 public elementary schools and six public junior high schools operated by the city government, two public high schools operated by the Fukushima Prefectural Board of Education; the city has one private high school Fukushima Prefectural Hobara High School Fukushima Prefectural Yanagawa High School Seiko Gakuin High School JR East – Tōhoku Main Line Date AbukumaExpress – Abukuma Express Line Takako - Kamihobara - Hobara - Ōizumi - Niida - Nitta - Yanagawa - Yanagawa Kibōnomori Kōen-mae - Tomino - Kabuto National Route 4 National Route 115 National Route 349 National Route 399 Ryōzen Shrine Mount Ryōzen site of Takakogaoka Castle, the original home of the Date Clan Takako Lake site of Yanagawa Castle, constructed by the Date Clan and once home to Date Masamune Yanagawa Hachiman Shrine, where Date Masamune prayed for victory in battle Saitou Hikonai and leader of a peasants' revolt - Revere, MA, USA since August, 2016 Media related to Date, Fukushima at Wikimedia Commons Official website Date City Commerce and Tourism Association Portal Site, "Date Megane"
