KMVK, is a commercial FM radio station licensed to Fort Worth and serving the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The station is operated by Entercom. KMVK airs a radio format featuring Regional Mexican music; the station's studios are located along North Central Expressway in Uptown Dallas and the transmitter site is in Cedar Hill. While most FM stations in the Metroplex operate at or near 100,000 watts, KMVK runs at 16,500 watts, so it has a smaller coverage area; the station broadcasts in HD. Its HD-2 signal carries a Tejano music format known as "Fierro." Latin pop music is heard on its HD-3 signal, known as "Dale! 107.5 HD3." On February 18, 1965, 107.5 signed on the air as an R&B and Soul music station. It simulcast; the station was sold to Black Enterprise magazine founder Earl G. Graves Sr. under the company name EGG Dallas Broadcasting Inc.. KNOK-FM broadcast with 100,000 watts but from a tower only 450 feet in height above average terrain. In 1985, the station became KDLZ while retaining its R&B format.
The coverage area was increased and the studios were moved to Cedar Hill after the original studios in Fort Worth were destroyed by fire. In December 1988, Gilmore Broadcasting purchased KDLZ. On December 23, Gilmore picked up the easy listening format and KMEZ call letters from 100.3 to 107.5. The station was sold to Granum Communications in 1991. On July 4 of that year, Granum flipped the station and format to KCDU with a short-lived classic rock format. A Smooth Jazz format began on November 2, 1992, moving over from 106.1. The Smooth Jazz station took the call letters KOAI as "The Oasis.". In 1996, KOAI was one of three radio stations that fell victim to the radio tower collapse in Cedar Hill on October 12 of that year. KOAI, as well as sister stations KRBV and KYNG, scrambled to get their stations back on the air through an auxiliary tower. "The Oasis"' ratings seemed to escape unscathed in the Fall ratings book that year, but the fate was not as good at the other 2 stations. "107.5 The Oasis" has created a loyal following for 14 years until October 2, 2006, at 5 PM, when KOAI jettisoned the smooth jazz programming and changed its format to Rhythmic Adult Contemporary as "Movin' 107.5."
The Oasis moved to 107.5 HD-2 digital sub-channel. The station's logo and branding was identical to MOViN radio station KVMX in Oregon; the station changed formats to Rhythmic Top 40. The initial format change to "Movin'" caused a lot of criticism by listeners of "The Oasis", many of them demanded that the smooth jazz format be reinstated on the traditional signal. On February 17, 2009, at Noon, after playing "Vogue" by Madonna, the station flipped to a Spanish Hot adult contemporary format as "Mega 107.5." In 2010, "Mega 107.5" shifted to a Spanish rhythmic contemporary playlist with a few English-language hits in between. It was competing head-on with KESS-FM for over 2 years, until that station's owner, Univision Radio, switched it to a simulcast of KDXX, leaving KMVK the only Latin Pop-formatted station in the Metroplex for a short time. In late June 2012, it gained another competitor from Univision Radio with KDXX Máxima 99.1. By mid-summer 2012, the Metroplex had three Spanish-language CHR stations and three English-language CHR outlets, with one of those English-language stations targeted towards Latino listeners.
The former "La Kalle 107.9" from Univision Radio changed KESS to "Radio H2O" in late June 2012. KTCY Baila 101.7 was one of its short-term competitors until February 8, 2013, when the station's format was changed. On March 8, 2012, the station's website displayed a message stating "Todo va a cambiar!", hinting at a possible format flip in the near future. However the next morning, it was nothing more than a Daylight saving time announcement. On May 21, 2012, CBS hinted at a possible format flip on either KMVK or KRLD-FM to "AMP Radio", much like its Los Angeles CHR/Top 40 sister station KAMP-FM; the parent company registered 3 web domains. This format change instead happened four years in 2016, when sister KVIL evolved to Top 40, which has since flipped to Alternative the following year. On July 26, 2013, KMVK did flip formats, though to a Regional Mexican format as "La Grande 107.5", making it the 3rd format flip since 2006. The Latin Pop format is now heard on an HD Radio subchannel on 107.5.
On February 2, 2017, CBS Radio announced. The merger was approved on November 9, 2017, was consummated on the 17th. Months after, Entercom struck a new content deal with NBCUniversal-owned-and-operated stations KXAS-TV and KXTX-TV; the latter will partner with this station to bring enhanced Spanish-language news and entertainment information to its listeners, in addition to the current Regional Mexican music format. In early 2006, 107.5 HD2 began as a Traditional Jazz format to complement "The Oasis" before the station's format was relocated to this secondary HD Radio channel. On November 11, 2015, 107.5 HD2 began airing a Tejano format under the name "Fierro". In early
Sakaki Hyakusen Shin'en (Japanese: 彭城 百川. His other art names included Hōshū, Senkan and Hassendō, his father was a pharmacist and he may have been of at least partial Chinese descent. As a young man, he moved to Kyōto, where he studied painting with artists of the Kanō School and learned how to write haiku. Soon, however, he turned to Chinese painting; as with many of the early nanga artists, his works were of variable quality. He painted in the Yamato-e style and produced haiga. Another influence on his work were the landscapes known as "Shinkei". Many of his compositions include elements incorporated directly from Chinese paintings, offering a record of specific influences derived from China, he was awarded the honorary title of "Hokkyō", given to artists who practiced Buddhism, was one of the few nanga painters to earn a living from his art. Some of his best known works are the "Screen with Landscapes", a screen called "Plums and Bamboo"; the former is in the Tokyo National Museum and the latter is owned.

Natural science is a branch of science concerned with the description and understanding of natural phenomena, based on empirical evidence from observation and experimentation. Mechanisms such as peer review and repeatability of findings are used to try to ensure the validity of scientific advances. Natural science can be divided into two main branches: physical science. Physical science is subdivided into branches, including physics, chemistry and Earth science; these branches of natural science may be further divided into more specialized branches. As empirical sciences, natural sciences use tools from the formal sciences, such as mathematics and logic, converting information about nature into measurements which can be explained as clear statements of the "laws of nature". Modern natural science succeeded more classical approaches to natural philosophy traced to ancient Greece. Galileo, Descartes and Newton debated the benefits of using approaches which were more mathematical and more experimental in a methodical way.
Still, philosophical perspectives and presuppositions overlooked, remain necessary in natural science. Systematic data collection, including discovery science, succeeded natural history, which emerged in the 16th century by describing and classifying plants, minerals, so on. Today, "natural history" suggests observational descriptions aimed at popular audiences. Philosophers of science have suggested a number of criteria, including Karl Popper's controversial falsifiability criterion, to help them differentiate scientific endeavors from non-scientific ones. Validity and quality control, such as peer review and repeatability of findings, are amongst the most respected criteria in the present-day global scientific community; this field encompasses a set of disciplines. The scale of study can range from sub-component biophysics up to complex ecologies. Biology is concerned with the characteristics and behaviors of organisms, as well as how species were formed and their interactions with each other and the environment.
The biological fields of botany and medicine date back to early periods of civilization, while microbiology was introduced in the 17th century with the invention of the microscope. However, it was not until the 19th century. Once scientists discovered commonalities between all living things, it was decided they were best studied as a whole; some key developments in biology were the discovery of genetics. Modern biology is divided into subdisciplines by the type of organism and by the scale being studied. Molecular biology is the study of the fundamental chemistry of life, while cellular biology is the examination of the cell. At a higher level and physiology look at the internal structures, their functions, of an organism, while ecology looks at how various organisms interrelate. Constituting the scientific study of matter at the atomic and molecular scale, chemistry deals with collections of atoms, such as gases, molecules and metals; the composition, statistical properties and reactions of these materials are studied.
Chemistry involves understanding the properties and interactions of individual atoms and molecules for use in larger-scale applications. Most chemical processes can be studied directly in a laboratory, using a series of techniques for manipulating materials, as well as an understanding of the underlying processes. Chemistry is called "the central science" because of its role in connecting the other natural sciences. Early experiments in chemistry had their roots in the system of Alchemy, a set of beliefs combining mysticism with physical experiments; the science of chemistry began to develop with the work of Robert Boyle, the discoverer of gas, Antoine Lavoisier, who developed the theory of the Conservation of mass. The discovery of the chemical elements and atomic theory began to systematize this science, researchers developed a fundamental understanding of states of matter, chemical bonds and chemical reactions; the success of this science led to a complementary chemical industry that now plays a significant role in the world economy.
Physics embodies the study of the fundamental constituents of the universe, the forces and interactions they exert on one another, the results produced by these interactions. In general, physics is regarded as the fundamental science, because all other natural sciences use and obey the principles and laws set down by the field. Physics relies on mathematics as the logical framework for formulation and quantification of principles; the study of the principles of the universe has a long history and derives from direct observation and experimentation. The formulation of theories about the governing laws of the universe has been central to the study of physics from early on, with philosophy yielding to systematic, quantitative experimental testing and observation as the source of verification. Key historical developments in physics include Isaac Newton's theory of universal gravitation and classical mechanics, an understanding of electricity and its relation to magnetism, Einstein's theories of special and general relativity, the development of thermodynamics, the quantum mechanical model of atomic and subatomic physics.
The field of physics is broad, can include such diverse studies as quantum mechanics
