MetroLyrics

MetroLyrics is a lyrics-dedicated website, founded in December 2002. The MetroLyrics database contains over 1 million songs performed by over 16,000 artists. MetroLyrics was the first lyrics-dedicated site to license licensing aggregator Gracenote Inc.'s lyrics catalogue in April 2008. Through this lyrics licensing model, lyrics copyright holders accrue royalty revenue when their work is displayed on MetroLyrics.com, which MetroLyrics recuperates by collecting money from banner advertisements on the site. Royalties are handled through Gracenote. In January 2013, LyricFind acquired Gracenote's lyrics licensing business, merging it in with their own. MetroLyrics' licensing model is distinct, as many lyrics websites still offer content, unlicensed and copyright infringing. MetroLyrics was acquired by CBS Interactive in October 2011.

Aichi AB-4

The Aichi AB-4 was a Japanese flying boat of the 1930s. A single engined biplane, the AB-4 was intended to carry out night reconnaissance for the Imperial Japanese Navy. Six were built and accepted into service as the Experimental 6-Shi Night Reconnaissance Flying boat, three of which were converted to civil transports. In 1931, the Imperial Japanese Navy instructed the Aichi Tokei Denki Seizo KK., involved in aircraft manufacture for the Navy, since 1920, to design a small catapult-launched night reconnaissance aircraft, intended to observe nocturnal shipping movements, spot naval gunfire during night engagements and to direct friendly submarines. The resulting design, designated AB-4 by Aichi was a single-engined pusher biplane flying boat of all-metal construction, its single-bay wings folded backwards for storage aboard ship, while its crew of three were housed in open cockpits. It was powered by a single Gasuden Urakaze water-cooled six-cylinder inline engine driving a two blade propellor.

The first prototype flew in May 1932, while handling was good, it had poor control during take-off and landing, a poor view for the pilot. Despite this, a further five prototypes were ordered for evaluation; the six prototypes, designated Experimental 6-Shi Night Reconnaissance Flying Boat were subject to extensive testing and evaluation by the Japanese Navy. While the Navy decided not to order further production of the AB-4, it had a continued requirement for a dedicated night reconnaissance aircraft, which resulted in the Specification that led to the Aichi E10A, which entered service in 1936. In 1935, three of the six AB-4s were sold to the Japanese Airline Nippon Koku Yuso Kenkyusho; the first aircraft was converted to a cargo transport, while the second and third aircraft were converted to passenger airliners, with the pilot's cockpit moved to the extreme nose and an enclosed passenger cabin, for five and six passengers added. The third prototype replaced the Gasuden engine with a more powerful Napier Lion.

The three AB-4s were used by NKYK in scheduled services from Osaka, for sightseeing flights. One crashed into a factory chimney on 27 May 1937.

Markeaton Park

Markeaton Park is a large public park located in Markeaton, Derby, 207 acres in size. It attracts one million visitors a year, making it one of the most visited parks in the East Midlands. Markeaton Park is an important part of Derby history, sold to the Mundy family in 1516; the Mundy family gave Markeaton Park to Derby City Council in the early 20th century who now provide facilities and events throughout the year. Markeaton Park is a popular destination for walking and taking picnics; the park has a pitch and putt course, rowing boats and tennis courts plus the refurbished Grade II listed Orangery Cafe and Craft Village. Children's activities include playgrounds, Skyline High Ropes, paddling pool, donkey rides, a light railway and crazy golf. Behind the modern day park lays a history which can be traced back to the medieval period, when the first park was laid out. Over the following centuries the park went through many changes, from arable fields to an enclosed designed 18th century park and hall and at the beginning of the 20th century into the public park of today.

The park has many features that mark this history: ancient veteran trees, historic lost roads, old arable field patterns, the 18th century park and buildings and the remains of a Second World War army camp. Markeaton Brook flows through the park. Markeaton parkrun, a free weekly timed 5k run, takes place in the park every Saturday morning at 9.00am, having moved from its previous location at Darley. The park annually hosts a triathlon organised by the Jenson Button Trust, as well as other athletic events throughout the year such as the Race for Life and the Resolution Run. There is a Friends of Markeaton Park group who are a registered charity to provide educational activities and manage Markeaton Park's walled garden
