France Télévisions

France Télévisions is the French public national television broadcaster. It is a state-owned company formed from the integration of the public television channels France 2 and France 3 joined by the independent channels France 5, France Ô, France 4. France Télévisions is funded by the revenue from television licence fees and commercial advertising; the new law on public broadcasting will phase out commercial advertising on the public television channels. France Télévisions is a supporter of the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV initiative, promoting and establishing an open European standard for hybrid set-top boxes for the reception of broadcast TV and broadband multimedia applications with a single user interface, has selected HbbTV for its interactive news and weather service, plans to add catch-up TV and social media sharing capability. From 1964 to 1974, French radio and television was monopolized through an organization known as the Office de Radiodiffusion Télévision Française. In an effort to stimulate competition, the organization was split in 1975 so that the France's three television channels—TF1, Antenne 2, FR3, would still be owned by the French government, but be operated independently from each other.

However, the privatization of TF1 in 1987 and increased competition from other new private broadcasters led to a decline in viewership for the two remaining public channels, which lost 30% of their market share between 1987 and 1989. The channels were however saved when a single director-general was appointed to manage both Antenne 2 and FR3, becoming part of a joint entity known as France Télévision, they were renamed in 1992 as France 3 respectively. In August 2000, France Télévisions S. A. was formed as a holding company for France's public television channels, absorbing control of France 2, France 3, La Cinquième. In 2004, Réseau France Outre-mer was absorbed by France Télévisions. Beginning in 2008, the President of France took the duty of naming the presidents for the French public broadcasters.

Eriochilus dilatatus subsp. multiflorus

Eriochilus dilatatus subsp. Multiflorus known as the common bunny orchid, is a plant in the orchid family Orchidaceae and is endemic to Western Australia, it has a single short, flattened, egg-shaped leaf and up to twenty dull green and white flowers which are closely packed. It woodland between Perth and Albany. Eriochilus dilatatus subsp. Multiflorus is a terrestrial, deciduous, herb with an underground tuber and a single smooth, egg-shaped leaf, 10–40 mm long and 5–11 mm wide; the leaf is held above ground on a stalk up to 100 mm long and is not developed at flowering time. When plants are not flowering, the leaf is much larger. Up to twenty flowers 10–15 mm long and 10–12 mm wide are borne on a flowering stem 250–450 mm tall; the flowers are greenish with reddish markings, except for the lateral sepals which are white and are crowded along the flowering stem. The dorsal sepal is egg-shaped to spatula-shaped, 8 -- about 3 mm wide; the lateral sepals are 10–17 mm long and 2–4 mm wide. The petals are 6–9 mm long, about 1 mm wide and turned towards the dorsal sepal.

The labellum is greenish to cream-coloured with red spots, 8–10 mm long, 2.5–4.5 mm wide with three lobes and scattered clusters of red and white bristles. Flowering is enhanced by fire the previous summer; the common bunny orchid was first formally described in 1840 by John Lindley who gave it the name Eriochilus multiflorus and published the description in A Sketch of the Vegetation of the Swan River Colony. In 2006, Stephen Hopper and Andrew Brown reduced it to subspecies status; the subspecies epithet is a Latin word meaning "many-flowered".} The common bunny orchid is common in woodland and forest between Perth and Albany. Eriochilus dilatatus subsp. Multiflorus is classified as "not threatened" by the Western Australian Government Department of Parks and Wildlife

Riparian water rights

Riparian water rights is a system for allocating water among those who possess land along its path. It has its origins in English common law. Riparian water rights exist in many jurisdictions with a common law heritage, such as Canada and states in the eastern United States. Common land ownership can be organized into a partition unit, a corporation consisting of the landowners on the shore that formally owns the water area and determines its use. Under the riparian principle, all landowners whose properties adjoin a body of water have the right to make reasonable use of it as it flows through or over their properties. If there is not enough water to satisfy all users, allotments are fixed in proportion to frontage on the water source; these rights cannot be sold or transferred other than with the adjoining land and only in reasonable quantities associated with that land. The water cannot be transferred out of the watershed without due consideration as to the rights of the downstream riparian landowners.

Riparian rights include such things as the right to access for swimming and fishing. Riparian rights depend upon "reasonable use" as it relates to other riparian owners to ensure that the rights of one riparian owner are weighed and equitably with the rights of adjacent riparian owners; the Environment Agency lists the riparian duties in England and Wales. The rights include ownership of the land up to the centre of the watercourse unless it is known to be owned by someone else, the right for water to flow onto land in its natural quantity and quality, the right to protect property from flooding and land from erosion subject to approval by the agency, the right to fish in the watercourse unless the right is sold or leased if an angler has a valid Environment Agency rod licence, they include the right to acquire accretion and the right to boomage. Duties arising from the model include the following: Pass on the flow of water without obstruction, pollution or diversion affecting the rights of others.

Maintain the bed and banks of the watercourse and to clear any debris, whether natural or artificial, to keep any culverts, rubbish screens and mill gates clear of debris. Be responsible for protection of land from flooding and cause no obstructions, temporary or permanent, preventing the free passage of fish. Accept flood flows if caused by inadequate capacity downstream, but there is no duty to improve the drainage capacity of a watercourse; the United States recognizes two types of water rights. Although use and overlap varies over time and by state, the western arid states follow the doctrine of prior appropriation,also known as first-come, first-served, but water rights for the eastern states follow riparian law. Under riparian law, water is a public good like sunlight, or wildlife, it is not "owned" by the government, state or private individual but is rather included as part of the land over which it falls from the sky or travels along the surface. In determining the contours of riparian rights, there is a clear distinction between navigable waters and non-navigable waters.

The land below navigable waters is the property of state, subject to all the public land laws and in most states public trust rights. Navigable waters are treated as public highways with any exclusive riparian right ending at the ordinary high water mark. Like a road, any riparian right is subordinate to the public's right to travel on the river, but any public right is subject to nuisance laws and the police power of the state, it is not an individual liberty interest. Because a finding of navigability establishes state versus federal property, navigability for purposes of riverbed title is a federal question determined under federal law; the states retain the power of defining the scope of the public trust over navigable waters. A non-navigable stream is synonymous with private property, or jointly-owned property if it serves as a boundary; the state could choose to divest itself of title to the streambed, but the waters and use of the waters remains subject to the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution which holds an easement or servitude, benefiting the federal government for the purpose of regulating commerce on navigable bodies of water.

The reasonable use of the water by a riparian owner is subject to the downstream riparian owners'riparian right' to receive waters undiminished in flow and quality. Since all surface waters flow to the public ocean, federal regulatory authority under the Clean Waters Act, like the Clean Air Act, extends beyond only public waters to prevent downstream pollution. Federal courts have long recognized that state laws establish the extent of the riparian and public right. In the case of navigable waters, title goes to the average low water mark; the Pennsylvania Supreme Court defined it as the "ordinary low water mark, unaffected by drought. Land below the low water mark on navigable rivers belongs to the state government in the case of the 13 original states. Lands between the high and low water marks on navigable rivers are subject to the police powers of the states. In the case of the original 13 states, upon ratification of the US Constitution, title to these submerged lands remained vested in the several states similar to the public or common roads.

Marco Dane

Marco Dane is a fictional character from the American soap opera One Life to Live. The role was played by actor Gerald Anthony from its debut in 1977 through 1986, from 1989 until 1990. Anthony crossed over in the role on sister soap opera General Hospital on September 2, 1992 as Marco, remaining in the role through December 24, 1993. In 1977, Karen Wolek, fiancée to Llanview Hospital chief of staff Dr. Larry Wolek, is planning for her impending nuptials when ex-boyfriend Marco Dane arrives in Llanview. Fearful that Larry would not marry her if he were to learn about the confidence tricks and embezzlement schemes she participated in with Marco before her arrival in town, she agitated at Marco's presence. Karen and Larry marry without Marco divulging Karen's secret past, while Marco planned to blackmail her into another business venture instead. In search for employment, Dorian Lord hires Marco as a personal assistant engaging in a romantic affair with him. Marco engages in constant schadenfreude in Karen's anxiety over the possibility of the con man telling Larry of all the sordid details of their prior criminal behavior.

With the introduction of actress Judith Light in the role of Karen in late 1977, head writer Gordon Russell ramps up the storyline into Marco and Karen's relationship, with the role of Karen becoming a jangled bundle of nerves around Anthony's Marco. With the arrival of the goddaughter of Victoria "Viki" Lord Riley, Tina Clayton, Marco opens up a brothel while masquerading it as a photography studio. Establishing a business venture in Llanview, Marco forces Karen to become one of his prostitutes in exchange for his silence on their past dealings. After Marco takes clothed photographs of naive, teenaged Tina, he edits the images to make them appear as if Tina posed nude; when Marco publishes the photos of Tina, a livid Viki confronts a nonchalant Marco who concedes to none of Viki's accusations. Newspaper publisher Viki proceeds with a pursuing an exposé in her family newspaper, The Banner, about Dane's doings. While investigating Marco, Viki starts to suspect Karen of cuckolding her former brother-in-law Larry in multiple extramarital affairs.

Growing stressed at keeping the secret of her sexual exploits to herself, when Viki confronted Karen with her suspicions, Karen admits to the affairs and divulges her forced prostitution by Marco to Viki. Empathetic to Karen's plight and livid with Marco's lurid behaviors, Viki proceeded to share and publish the story of Marco's business dealings with the help of her husband and editor-in-chief, Joe Riley. Before the story could be published, Marco finds the murdered corpse of his brother, Dr. Mario Corelli. Marco soon devises a plan to assume the identity of his dead brother in an effort to frame Viki for his apparent murder. Known for her recurrent bouts with multiple personalities, Viki's apparent motive of revenge for the damaged reputations of her dear Tina and close friend Karen leads Llanview Police Lieutenant Ed Hall to arrest the town heroine. Viki is indicted and charged with the murder of Marco, unbeknownst to anyone Marco had an identical twin brother; when Viki is put on trial for the murder of Marco, Llanview District Attorney Herb Callison brings surprise witness "Dr. Mario Corelli" to the witness stand.

"Mario" presents forged letters of threats from Viki to Marco as evidence. Karen convinces her friend and fellow prostitute Katrina Karr as to the true identity of Marco's murderer, Katrina directs Karen to a post office box with a letter about the killer. Upon arrival to the post office to retrieve the letter uncovering Marco's murderer, the letter is mysteriously lost and Katrina subsequently hit by a car, resulting in Katrina going into a coma. After a month of trial, Katrina recovers and testifies that Karen's extramarital lover, Talbot Huddleston, was Marco's murderer, exonerating Viki at the eleventh hour; as the 1980s begin, Karen is raped by Brad Vernon, the husband of her younger sister Jenny Wolek Vernon, confided in Marco as to the apparent assault. Upon learning of her husband's rape of her sister, the pregnant Jenny went into premature labor as Katrina Karr was in-hospital giving birth to her own child. Marco and Karen, now friends again, went about switching the sickly-and-soon-dead body of Karen's niece with the live-born child of Katrina when Karen goes into visit the nursery of newborn children.

A distraught Katrina falls into a deep depression while the elated Jenny reveled in being a new mother. Disturbed with leading a double life, Marco suffers a bout of selective amnesia, which prompts Karen to commit Marco into a sanatorium. After being released from the sanitarium, he courts and engages to marry Banner reporter Edwina Lewis. Before the wedding ceremony can be completed, Dorian reports to the Llanview police that Mario Corelli was Marco Dane. Marco, his identity revealed, is arrested for identity fraud, incarcerated in Statesville prison, Edwina proceeded to break off their engagement. After his release from prison, though and Marco reconcile and marry. Reformed from his criminal ways, partners-in-crime Marco and Karen learns that Tina's father, Ted Clayton, is attempting to swindle the Lord family fortune from Viki; the two devise a plan to foil Ted's plot, much to the chagrin of an out of the loop Edwina, who tells the secretive Marco to move out of their apartment. Marco is shot in a confrontation with T
