HD 45350 b

HD 45350 b is an extrasolar planet located 160 light-years away in the constellation of Auriga. It has a minimum mass about 1.79 times that of Jupiter. The mean distance of the planet from the star is more than the distance between Mars and the Sun, but the eccentricity of the orbit is nothing short of remarkable. No doubt seasons on the planet would be extreme; the planet HD 45350 b is named Peitruss. The name was selected in the NameExoWorlds campaign by Luxembourg, during the 100th anniversary of the IAU. Peitruss is derived from the name of the Luxembourg river Pétrusse. Dynamical simulations covering a period of 107 years show that a second, low-mass, planet could only orbit stably if it were no more than 0.2 AU away from the star. Radial velocity observations rule out any such planet. "HD 45350". Exoplanets. Archived from the original on 2008-05-18. Retrieved 2008-08-20. HD 45350b Simulation Michael Endl.

KTIS (AM)

KTIS, known on-air as "Faith 900 KTIS", is a radio station in Minneapolis, owned and operated by University of Northwestern - St Paul and is a non-profit, listener-supported radio station relying on donations from the local community throughout the year. It broadcasts on 900 AM, covering Minneapolis-St. Paul and surrounding areas in Minnesota. KTIS' studios are located on Snelling Avenue in St. Paul, while its transmitter is located in the Hazel Park neighborhood of Oakdale. KTIS was founded in 1949 by Rev. Billy Graham when he was president of Northwestern. KTIS is the flagship station of Faith Radio, a network whose programming features Christian talk and teaching, with programs such as Turning Point with David Jeremiah. Programming is nearly 100 percent satellite produced by Northwestern Media. On February 6, 2015, KTIS began simulcasting on FM translator K214DF, better received in the western suburbs, via the HD2 channel of sister station KTIS-FM; the station added a second translator on W248CU, better received in the eastern suburbs, in June 2017, though there is significant overlap with 90.7.

The second translator, licensed to Minneapolis but transmitting from St. Paul, forced a low-powered FM KPPS-LP to apply for an emergency increase in power from 50 watts to 100 watts due to interference. KPPS-LP had an application to move to 88.9 FM however, so the request to increase power was denied by the FCC. In addition, the translator on 97.5 FM is on the same frequency as KNXR licensed to Rochester, causing some complaints from listeners in the south metro who could no longer hear the station. This is not the first time.

A serial entrepreneur she formed her first company at 29.

She is involved in her husband's businesses. At the time of her conviction her personal net worth was estimated to be US$23 million, this is separate from her husband's nine figure net worth. Many of her businesses are owned through her holding company LWF Holdings, her friend Janet Peckinpaugh served as the marketing director of LWF Holdings. In 2010 her campaign claimed that she directly employed 500 people and had hosted a group of 15 Kenyan entrepreneurs on a tour of Connecticut. Allstar Therapy provides occupational and physical rehabilitation in health care facilities throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island. Allstar Therapy was sold in 2016. In 1998 she acquired the Simsbury Bowling Center and renamed it Blue Fox Rock'N Bowl and renovated it emphasize a family friendly atmosphere. In 1999 she acquired the Copper Hill Golf Club for $1.3m renaming it Fox Run at Copper Hill. The club was sold in 2010; the company sold three Victorian Bed and Breakfasts in Newport, RI. Blue Fox Run is a 27-hole golf course owned by Wilson-Foley notable for being the first in the country to offer onsite childcare.

In 1996 she purchased the property known as the Bel Compo Golf Course and having only 18 holes, for US$3.5m with her husband purchasing 55 adjoining acres.

She served on the board of the Renbrook School and the American School for the Deaf. She is a political protege of former Governor of Connecticut John G. Rowland who called her “grasshopper” during his political tutelage. Rowland has been the subject of a number of political scandals and successful criminal prosecutions throughout his life. In 2010 Lisa Wilson-Foley announced that she was running for Lieutenant Governor of Connecticut as a Republican. Wilson-Foley's campaign platform was unique, she said she would refuse the salary and driver that traditionally came with the position.

At the core of the investigations was her relationship with John Rowland, she had hired him to adviser her campaign but because he was a convicted felon and notoriously corrupt she chose to pay him more than US$35,000 through her husband's legitimate businesses in the hopes of avoiding negative publicity. By law all paid campaign staff must be reported, but the Foley-Wilson campaign neglected to report him. Rowland provided fraudulent invoices for services on behalf of the couple's nursing home company as cover for the payments.
