KHRR

KHRR, virtual channel 40, is a Telemundo owned-and-operated television station licensed to Tucson, United States. The station is owned by the Telemundo Station Group subsidiary of NBCUniversal. KHRR's studios are located on North Stone Avenue in downtown Tucson, its transmitter is located atop the Tucson Mountains. Although identifying as a separate station in its own right, KHRR is considered a semi-satellite of KTAZ in Phoenix; as such, it simulcasts all Telemundo programming as provided through its parent, but airs separate commercial inserts and legal identifications, has its own website. Local newscasts, produced by KTAZ and branded as Noticiero Telemundo Arizona, are simulcast on both stations. Although KHRR maintains its own facilities, master control and most internal operations are based at KTAZ's studios on South 33rd Place in Phoenix. Channel 40 was home to an English-language independent station, known as KPOL, which signed on the air January 5, 1985. At the same time, KDTU signed on with a similar format.

Tucson was too small to support both stations, so KPOL filed for bankruptcy in 1988 and went dark in 1989. The license remained active. In 1991, local Tucson businessman Jay Zucker purchased the dormant KPOL license out of bankruptcy, on July 1, 1992, channel 40 signed on as KHRR with Telemundo programming. Zucker owned the station until 1998, when he sold it to The Apogee Companies, who maintained the Telemundo affiliation. KHRR became a Telemundo O&O in 2002, along with KDRX-CA; the two stations maintained a sister relationship, sharing their newscasts and programming stations, yet with each station based out of its own city of license. The arrangement continued until a 2006 station swap relocated Telemundo O&O KPHZ to Phoenix, where it became KTAZ, Daystar O&O KDTP to Holbrook, Arizona; the deal transferred KDRX-CA to Daystar, where it became KDTP-CA. In 2007, a restructuring plan by parent company NBC Universal, called "NBCU 2.0", moved the KHRR and KTAZ newscasts to the Telemundo News Hub in Dallas, along with news operations of other Telemundo stations in the West.

The station's digital signal is multiplexed: In their Sixth Report and Order, dated April 3, 1997, proposing a digital television table of allotments, the FCC allocated UHF channel 41 for the KHRR-DT operations. However, by February 1998, the DTV Table of Allotments had been changed to specify channel 42 for KHRR-DT. KHRR applied for DTV facilities to broadcast at 303 kW in October 1999, amended the ERP to 411.5 kW in February 2002. In May 2003, in order to meet an FCC deadline for having a digital television station operational, KHRR requested a Special Temporary Authorization to operate at 12.7 kW, which the FCC granted the following month. After delays due to coordination with the Mexican government, interference issues, the sale of the station from the Apogee Companies to NBC Telemundo, by June 2006, the station was still operating under their STA facilities, the STA having been extended several times. Having to meet another FCC deadline to have operational facilities by June 30, 2006, KHRR requested to make their STA facilities permanent.

The FCC granted the request on July 10, 2006, the next day, KHRR applied for a license to cover their facilities, from which they were broadcasting. The FCC granted the license on January 31, 2007. KHRR discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 40, on June 12, 2009, as part of the federally mandated from analog to digital television; the station's digital signal relocated from its pre-transition UHF channel 42 to channel 40.

Mr. Summers, as the man calls himself, spends his time traveling and giving burials to animals that have been killed by cars, a task he refers to as "The Work". Bobby having an affinity for animals, becomes friends with the old man and aids him in his task; the pair return to London to confront "The Fat".

Which I had always intended to do when I started in the business as an editor, I was arising to fifty and I had never made a film of my own, although I had been involved with other people’s films. So I made this film, it was a personal film, because I think it is a nice thing to make a first film about some sort of centre, important for you, to centre you on the movie and to keep you driven, with an ideology behind the film.

So I wanted to make a film about the heart of this book, about simple animals that we see every day in nature. It is an antidote to the other movies basically, but I can see that theme in the other movies. All the Little Animals on IMDb All the Little Animals at AllMovie

Cycling monument

The Monuments are five classic cycle races considered to be the oldest and most prestigious one-day events in road cycling. They each have specific individual characteristics, they are the one-day races in which most points can be earned in the UCI World Tour. Five monuments are: Milan–San Remo – the first major Classic of the year, its Italian name is La Primavera, because it is held in late March. First run in 1907, it is notable for being considered the sprinter's classic; this race is long though flat along the Ligurian coast, enabling sprinters to compete. Tour of Flanders – the Ronde van Vlaanderen in Dutch/Flemish, the first of the Cobbled classics, is raced every first Sunday of April, it was first held in 1913. Notable for the narrow short hills in the Flemish Ardennes steep and cobbled, the route forces the best riders to continually fight for space at the front; the course changes every year: since 2017 the race starts in Antwerp and since 2012 finishes in Oudenaarde. Paris–Roubaix – the Queen of the Classics or l'Enfer du Nord is raced traditionally one week after the Tour of Flanders and is the last of the cobbled races.

It was first organized in 1896. Its decisive sites are the many long sections of pavé making it the most unpleasant one-day race, it is considered by many to be the most heroic one-day cycling event of the year. The race finishes on the iconic Roubaix Velodrome. At the end of the race, riders are covered in dirt and/or mud in what is considered one of the most brutal tests of mental and physical endurance in all of cycling. Liège–Bastogne–Liège – held in late April. La Doyenne, the oldest Classic, is the last of the Ardennes classics and the last of the spring races, it was first organized in 1892 as an amateur event. It is a long and arduous race notable for its many sharp hills in the Ardennes and uphill finish in the industrial suburbs of Liège, favouring climbers and grand tour specialists. Giro di Lombardia – the Autumn Classic or the Race of the Falling Leaves, is held in October or late September. Organized as Milano–Milano in 1905, it was called the Giro di Lombardia in 1907 and Il Lombardia in 2012.

It is notable for its hilly and varied course around Lake Como. It is won by climbers with a strong sprint finish. Both Belgian'monuments' – The Tour of Flanders and Liège–Bastogne–Liège – have women's events. A women's version of Milan–San Remo, named Primavera Rosa, was initiated in 1999, but cancelled after 2005. Only three riders have won all five monument races during their careers: Rik Van Looy, Eddy Merckx and Roger De Vlaeminck, all three Belgians, only Eddy Merckx won each of them more than once. Six riders won four different monuments. With victories in all the other monuments, Sean Kelly joined the top group, finishing second in the Tour of Flanders on three occasions. Dutch rider Hennie Kuiper won each monument except Liège–Bastogne–Liège, in which he finished second in 1980. Frenchman Louison Bobet won all but Liège–Bastogne–Liège. Belgian rider Fred De Bruyne came close as well, finishing second in the Giro di Lombardia in 1955 and winning the other four races during his career. Germain Derycke won four, all except the Giro di Lombardia.

Philippe Gilbert is the most recent rider to win four different monuments, all except Milan–San Remo, in which he finished third twice. 21 riders have won at least five monuments in their career. Riders in blue are still active. Number of wins in gold indicates the current record holder. Only Eddy Merckx has been able to win three monuments in a single year - and he did it four times: 23 different riders have managed to win two Monuments in the same year; the most common "double" consists of the two cobbled classics, which have been won by the same rider in the same year on 12 occasions. The Italian "double" has been achieved 10 times. Only Merckx has won the combinations Milan–San Remo/Tour of Flanders and Tour of Flanders/Liège–Bastogne–Liège, when he won all three Monuments in 1969 and 1975

Yakov Shakhovskoy

Prince Yakov Petrovich Shakhovskoy was a Russian statesman. Prince Yakov Shakhovskoy was born in the family of Prince Pyotr Ivanovich Shakhovskoy, who died when Yakov was several months old, his mother remarried twice. From the age of 9 years Yakov was brought up by his uncle, Prince Aleksey Shakhovskoy, at this time a guard officer, he started his military service in 1720 as a soldier of Leib-Guard Semyonovsky Regiment. In 1725 he became a first lieutenant and in the reign of Peter II was promoted to captain. In 1730 he was transferred to the Сavalry guards. In the middle of 1730s Yakov Shakhovsky served under his uncle, who governed Malorossia from December 1731, on his behalf personally reported to Empress Anna Ioanovna and Duke Biron on the Ukrainian affairs. After the deaths of his uncle in April 1737, Shakhovsky was forced to leave the civil service and took part in the Russo-Turkish War with the Leib-Guard Сavalry regiment, he fought in the Ochakov and Khotin operations under command of Burkhard Christoph von Munnich.

During the regency of Biron and the short reign of Empress Anna Leopoldovna, the position of Shakhovskoy was precarious, although he was the Head of Police and senator for a short time. When Empress Elizabeth of Russia usurped the throne, all the protectors of Shakhovsky were arrested and he was forced to retire, yet the patronage of Prince Nikita Trubetskoy helped him secure the position of the General-Prosecutor of the Holy Synod. Shakhovsky gained reputation as the most exacting prosecutor in decades and earned the animosity of many powerful clerics, who entreated Elizabeth to remove Shakhovskoy from his post. However, he presided over the Holy Synod for 12 years. For his integrity he was rewarded with the rank of Privy Counsellor and orders of Alexander Nevsky and of St. Anna. On 29 May 1753 he became General-krigskomissar and at this post controlled state expenditures during the Seven Years' War. On 15 August 1760, Shakhovskoy become the General-Prosecutor and the Conference-minister. On 25 December 1761 Emperor Peter III, who just assumed the throne, fired Shakhovskoy from his post.

The short reign of Peter III ended with a coup d'etat, Catherine II returned Shakhovsky for the service, appointing him a senator. On the day of her coronation the Empress granted to him the Order of St. Andrew. On 1 April 1766 Yakov Shakhovsky settled in Moscow, his stormy life, rich with events, is the subject of his interesting "Notes", which were for the first time published in 1810.
