SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Johann Daniel Titius

Johann Daniel Titius was a German astronomer and a professor at Wittenberg. Titius was born in Konitz, Royal Prussia to Jakob Tietz, a merchant and council member from Konitz, Maria Dorothea, née Hanow, his original name was Johann Tietz, but as was customary in the 18th century, when he became a university professor, he Latinized his surname to Titius. Tietz studied at the University of Leipzig, he died in Electorate of Saxony. He is best known for formulating the Titius–Bode law, for using this rule to predict the existence of a celestial object at 2.8 AU from the sun which led to the 1801 discovery of what we now know as Ceres. He drew up the law in 1766, when he inserted his mathematical observation on planetary distances into a German translation of Charles Bonnet's book Contemplation de la Nature. In part because of this law, the first four minor planets were at first labeled as full-fledged planets. After a fifteen-year hiatus, other minor planets started to be discovered at increasing rates, Ceres and company were relabeled as minor planets or asteroids.

Because of its spherical shape, Ceres has had upgraded status as a dwarf planet since 2006. The asteroid 1998 Titius and the crater Titius on the Moon are named in his honour. Titius published a number of works on other areas in Physics, such as a set of conditions and rules for performing experiments, he was focused in thermometry. In 1765 he presented a survey of thermometry up to that date, he wrote about the metallic thermometer constructed by Hanns Loeser. In his treatises on both theoretical and experimental physics, he incorporated the findings of other scientists, such as the descriptions of experiments written by Georg Wolfgang Kraft in 1738. Titius was active in biology in classification of organisms and minerals, his biological work was influenced by Linnaeus. Lehrbegriff der Naturgeschichte Zum ersten Unterrichte, his most extensive publication in biology, was on systematic classification of plants and minerals, as well as the elemental substances ether, air and earth.

Betamax

Betamax is a consumer-level analog-recording and cassette format of magnetic tape for video. It was developed by Sony and was released in Japan on May 10, 1975; the first Betamax device introduced in the United States was the LV-1901 console, which included a 19-inch color monitor, appeared in stores in early November 1975. The cassettes contain 0.50-inch-wide videotape in a design similar to that of the earlier, professional 0.75-inch-wide, U-matic format. Betamax is obsolete, having lost the videotape format war to VHS. Despite this, Betamax recorders would not be discontinued until 2002, while new Betamax cassettes were available until March 2016, when Sony stopped making and selling them. Like the rival videotape format VHS, Betamax has no guard band and uses azimuth recording to reduce crosstalk. According to Sony's history webpages, the name had a double meaning: beta is the Japanese word used to describe the way in which signals are recorded on the tape; the suffix -max, from the word "maximum", was added to suggest greatness.

In 1977, Sony issued the first long-play Betamax VCR, the SL-8200. This VCR had two recording speeds: normal, the newer half speed; this provided two hours' recording on the L-500 Beta videocassette. The SL-8200 was to compete against the VHS VCRs, which allowed up to 4, 6 and 8, hours of recording on one cassette. Sanyo marketed a version as Betacord, casually called "Beta". In addition to Sony and Sanyo, Beta-format video recorders were manufactured and sold by Toshiba, Murphy, NEC; the Zenith Electronics Corporation and WEGA Corporations contracted with Sony to produce VCRs for their product lines. The department stores Sears and Quelle sold Beta-format VCRs under their house brands, as did the RadioShack chain of electronic stores. Betamax and VHS competed in a fierce format war. One other major consequence of the Betamax technology's introduction to the U. S. was the lawsuit Sony Corp. v. Universal City Studios, with the U. S. Supreme Court determining home videotaping to be legal in the United States, wherein home videotape cassette recorders were a legal technology since they had substantial noninfringing uses.

This precedent was invoked in MGM v. Grokster, where the high court agreed that the same "substantial noninfringing uses" standard applies to authors and vendors of peer-to-peer file sharing software. For the professional and broadcast video industry, Sony derived Betacam from Betamax. Released in 1982, Betacam became the most used videotape format in ENG, replacing the.75 in wide U-matic tape format. Betacam and Betamax are similar in some ways: they use the same video cassette shape, use the same oxide tape formulation with the same coercivity, record linear audio tracks in the same location of the tape, but in the key area of video recording and Betamax are different. Sony offered a range of industrial Betamax products, a Beta I-only format for industrial and institutional users; these were cheaper and smaller. The arrival of Betacam reduced the demand for U-Matic equipment. Betamax had a significant part to play in the music recording industry, when Sony introduced its PCM digital recording system as an encoding box/PCM adaptor that connected to a Betamax recorder.

The Sony PCM-F1 adaptor was sold with a companion Betamax VCR SL-2000 as a portable digital audio recording system. Many recording engineers used this system in the 1980s and 1990s to make their first digital master recordings. Sony was able to tout several Betamax-only features, such as BetaScan—a high speed picture search in either direction—and BetaSkipScan, a technique that allowed the operator to see where he was on the tape by pressing the FF key: the transport would switch into the BetaScan mode until the key was released; this feature is discussed in more detail on Peep Search. Sony believed that the M-Load transports used by VHS machines made copying these trick modes impossible. BetaSkipScan is now available on miniature M-load formats, but Sony was unable to replicate this on VHS. BetaScan was called "Videola" until the company that made the Moviola threatened legal action. Sony would sell a BetaPak, a small deck designed to be used with a camera. Concerned with the need for several pieces and cables to connect them, an integrated camera/recorder was designed, which Sony dubbed a "Camcorder".

Betamovie used the standard-size cassette, but with a modified transport. The tape was wrapped 300° around a smaller, 44.671 mm -diameter head drum, with a single dual-azimuth head to write the video tracks. For playback, the tape would be inserted into a Beta-format deck. Due to the different geometry and writing techniques employed, playback within the camcorder was not feasible. SuperBeta and industrial Betamovie camcorders would be sold by Sony. In June 1983, Sony introduced high fidelity audio to videotape as Beta Hi-Fi. For NTSC, Beta HiFi worked by placing a pair of FM carriers between the chroma and luminance carriers, a process known as frequency multiplexing; each head had a

1981 Tangerine Bowl

The 1981 Tangerine Bowl was an American college football bowl game played on December 19, 1981, at Orlando Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The game featured the the Missouri Tigers. Southern Miss had finished with 9 wins in the regular season, their most since 1962 in their second straight bowl appearance, their first consecutive bowl seasons since 1957-58. Missouri had finished 5th in the Big Eight Conference, qualifying for their 4th straight bowl appearance; this was the first Tangerine Bowl for Southern Miss since 1958. This was Missouri's first Tangerine Bowl. Bobby Meyer gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead on his three yard touchdown run in the first quarter; the Golden Eagles narrowed the lead to 7-3 on a Steve Clark field goal. Missouri increased their lead with two Bob Lucchesi field goals in the span of 5 minutes to make it 13-3 at halftime. Sammy Winder made it 13-10 on his 4 yard touchdown run in the middle of the third quarter. Lucchesi made it 16-10 on his 30 yard field goal in the third quarter.

He added another one from 28 yards out to make it 19-10. Southern Miss narrowed it to 19-17 with 1:03 remaining on a David Sellers touchdown pass to Louis Lipps. Collins left for SMU after the game, the Eagles did not return to a bowl game until 1988. Southern Miss has not played in the Tangerine bowl since. Missouri did not return until 2015

King of Pro-Wrestling (2019)

King of Pro-Wrestling was a professional wrestling event promoted by New Japan Pro-Wrestling. It took place on October 2019 at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan, it was the eighth event under the King of Pro-Wrestling name. King of Pro-Wrestling took place on October 14, 2019, on Health and Sports Day, a Japanese public holiday. Due to the events of the Typhoon Hagibis, Jon Moxley and Zack Sabre Jr. were unable to fly in to Japan, prompting last minute changes to the card. King of Pro-Wrestling featured professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches. At the Best of the Super Juniors 26 finals on June 5, Jon Moxley defeated Juice Robinson to win the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship. Moxley and Robinson would wrestle again in the G1 Climax on August 11, with Robinson winning and thereby preventing Moxley from winning the tournament.

Moxley subsequently challenged Robinson to a No Disqualification match for the United States Championship at King of Pro-Wrestling. However, Moxley was unable to attend the event due to travel issues stemming from Typhoon Hagibis. Per NJPW rules, he was stripped of the title and a match between Robinson and Lance Archer for the vacant title was scheduled instead. On night three of the G1 Climax on July 14, Evil defeated Kota Ibushi in a block match. Despite the loss, Ibushi went on to win the tournament, becoming the holder of the Tokyo Dome IWGP Heavyweight Championship challenge rights certificate. In a post-tournament interview, Ibushi declared that he wanted to defend the certificate against those who had beaten him, setting up a match between the two for this event. 2019 in professional wrestling List of NJPW pay-per-view events King of Pro-Wrestling at NJPW.co.jp
