Nebraska Cornhuskers football

The Nebraska Cornhuskers football team competes as part of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, representing the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in the West Division of the Big Ten. Nebraska plays its home games at Memorial Stadium, where it has sold out every game since 1962; the team is coached by Scott Frost. Nebraska is among the most storied programs in college football history; as of 2014, the Cornhuskers trail only Michigan, Ohio State, Texas in all-time victories among FBS teams, have won more games against Power Five opponents than any other program. Nebraska claims 46 conference championships and five national championships, has won nine other national championships that the school does not claim. NU's 1971 and 1995 title-winning teams are considered by many to be among the best in college football history. Famous Cornhuskers include Heisman Trophy winners Johnny Rodgers, Mike Rozier, Eric Crouch. Rodgers and Rozier join 22 other Cornhuskers in the College Football Hall of Fame.

Notable among these are players Bob Brown, Guy Chamberlin, Tommie Frazier, Rich Glover, Dave Rimington, Will Shields, coaches Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne. The program's first extended period of success came just after the turn of the century. Between 1900 and 1916, Nebraska had five undefeated seasons and completed a stretch of 34 consecutive games without a loss, still a program record. Despite a span of 21 conference championships in 33 seasons, the Cornhuskers didn't experience major national success until Bob Devaney was hired in 1962. In eleven seasons as head coach, Devaney won two national championships, eight conference titles, coached 22 All-Americans, but his most lasting achievement was the hiring of Tom Osborne as offensive coordinator in 1969. Osborne was named Devaney's successor in 1973, over the next 25 years established himself as one of the best coaches in college football history with his trademark I-form offense and revolutionary strength and nutrition programs. Following Osborne's retirement in 1997, Nebraska cycled through four head coaches before hiring state native Scott Frost in 2017.

Nebraska began its football history with a 10–0 victory over the Omaha YMCA on Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 1890. For its first two seasons, Nebraska was known as the "Old Gold Knights,", changed to "Bugeaters" in 1892. "Cornhuskers" first appeared in an 1893 school newspaper headline after an upset victory over Iowa. In this instance, "Cornhusker" was used to derogatorily refer to Iowa. Nebraska State Journal writer Cy Sherman, who would help create college football's AP Poll, first referred to Nebraska as the Cornhuskers in 1899; the program got off to a strong start, suffering only one sub-.500 season in its first 28 years of competition. Prior to a one-win 1899 season in A. Edwin Branch's only year as head coach, Nebraska compiled a 40–18–3 record. George Flippin was the first African-American athlete at Nebraska and only the fifth black athlete at any predominantly white university; because of Flippin's presence on the roster, Missouri refused to play a scheduled game with Nebraska in 1892.

The result was a 1–0 forfeit, technically, the first-ever conference win for Nebraska. Nebraska's fourth coach, Frank Crawford was the school's first paid football coach. Eddie N. Robinson and Fielding H. Yost, the program's sixth and seventh head coaches, were the first Nebraska coaches to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Walter C. Booth was Nebraska's ninth head coach, had the second-best record during this era among multi-year coaches, his 1902 team went undefeated and unscored upon. Despite at one point leading his team on a 24-game winning streak, Booth was bested by Ewald O. Stiehm, who won the MVIAA conference title in all five of his seasons and posted a school-record 34-game unbeaten streak. His.913 winning percentage remains the highest in school history. The Cornhuskers were a strong candidate play in the first-ever Rose Bowl Game after the 1915 season, but the university's athletic board voted to turn down any such invitation. Stiehm left NU after the 1915 season when the university turned down his demand that he be paid an annual salary of $4,250 to serve as football coach, basketball coach, athletic director.

When the United States became involved in World War I, many young men went off to war, depleting the ranks of football teams nationwide. Travel restrictions and the Spanish flu pandemic further complicated the college football landscape. William G. Kline led Nebraska through the stunted 1918 season. Veteran head coach Henry Schulte took over for the next two seasons, but managed a winning record as the program recovered from the war and its aftermath. Although Schulte stepped down as head football coach after 1920, he remained at Nebraska in a variety of coaching roles through 1938. By the end of its post-war slump, Nebraska had been led by 15 head coaches over 31 years. However, a period of relative stability followed, beginning with the hire of Fred Dawson in 1921. Dawson arrived at Nebraska after stints at Columbia and Virginia. During the entire three-year tenure of Knute Rockne's famed Four Horsemen, Notre Dame lost only two games. In Dawson's four years he won three conference titles and compiled the best record of any Nebraska coach from this era.

Wales at Six

Wales at Six is the Welsh national news service for the ITV Wales licence. The flagship weekday 6 pm programme is presented by Jonathan Hill. Shorter bulletins are transmitted as ITV News Cymru Wales. Wales at Six and all other ITV Wales news programming is broadcast live from studios at Assembly Square in Cardiff Bay, with a North Wales newsroom based in Colwyn Bay, a political unit at the National Assembly of Wales in Cardiff Bay. District reporters are based in West Wales, Merthyr Tydfil and Swansea. Jonathan Hill was promoted from news reporter and newsreader to a main anchor for the main evening news programme during February 1994. Andrea Byrne was appointed co-anchor on 14 January 2008 following the departure of Lucy Owen to rival programme BBC Wales Today. Hill and Byrne anchor alternating editions of the main 6pm programme as of June 2014. Kylie Pentelow took over from Byrne on 4 February 2019 for one-year. Ruth Wignall fronts national weather forecasts for ITV Cmyru Wales since 2002. From the launch of Harlech Television in May 1968, the company produced a full-scale bilingual news service - the only of its kind in the ITV network.

The 6pm weekday slot for regional news was shared by two programmes - Y Dydd in the Welsh language and Report Wales in English. The launch of S4C in November 1982 signalled the end of Welsh language news from HTV, although the company continues to produce Welsh current affairs programmes, including the long-running Y Byd ar Bedwar and the documentary series Ein Byd. Wales at Six replaced Report Wales as a full-length English language news programme on Monday 1 November 1982. HTV's news service was based at its Pontcanna studios until moving to the Television Centre at Culverhouse Cross in 1990. Wales at Six was latterly replaced by Wales Tonight in 1994 and 2005, HTV News in 1999, ITV Wales News in 2004 and ITV News Cymru Wales in 2013. On 17 September 2013, ITV Wales announced it would launch a weekly 30-minute current affairs programme, Newsweek Wales, featuring interviews, analysis and a look back at the week's main news stories in Wales; the new programme, broadcast on Sunday lunchtimes, was launched on Sunday 22 September 2013.

A previous plan to extend the weekday late bulletin to 15 minutes was scrapped. On Saturday 28 June 2014, ITV Cymru Wales broadcast from its Culverhouse Cross studios for the last time. Two days broadcasting began from its new base at Cardiff Bay; as part of the move, Wales at Six was revived as the title for the main 6pm programme on weekdays, after an absence of 20 years. Wales at Six airs each weeknight at 6pm with ITV News Cymru Wales bulletins airing seven days a week. Three short opts air as part of Good Morning Britain at 6:20am, 7:15am and 8:10am. A four-minute lunchtime bulletin, following the ITV Lunchtime News; the main half-hour 6pm programme, before the ITV Evening News. A ten-minute late-night bulletin, following ITV News at Ten.

Five Power Defence Arrangements

The Five Power Defence Arrangements are a series of defence relationships established by a series of multi-lateral agreements between the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Singapore signed in 1971, whereby the five powers are to consult each other "immediately" in the event or threat of an armed attack on any of these five countries for the purpose of deciding what measures should be taken jointly or separately in response. There is no specific commitment to intervene militarily; the Five Powers Defence Arrangements do not refer to exclusive economic zones and the enforcement of a state's EEZ rights is a matter for that state. The FPDA was set up following the termination of the United Kingdom's defence guarantees of Malaysia and Singapore under the Anglo-Malayan Defence Agreement, as a result of the UK's decision in 1967 to withdraw its armed forces east of Suez. Under the Five Powers Defence Arrangements, the five'powers' are to consult each other "immediately" in the event or threat of an armed attack on any of the five countries for the purpose of deciding what measures should be taken jointly or separately in response.

There is no specific commitment to intervene militarily." The FPDA provides defence co-operation between the countries, establishing an Integrated Air Defence System for Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore based at RMAF Butterworth under the command of an Australian Air Vice-Marshal. RMAF Butterworth, was under the control of the Royal Australian Air Force until 1988, is now run by the Royal Malaysian Air Force but hosts rotating detachments of aircraft and personnel from all five countries. In 1981, the five powers organised naval exercises. Since 1997, the naval and air exercises have been combined. In 2001, HQ IADS was redesignated Headquarters Integrated "Area" Defence System, it now has personnel from all three branches of the armed services, co-ordinates the annual five-power naval and air exercises, while moving towards the fuller integration of land elements. An annual FPDA Defence Chiefs' Conference is hosted by either Malaysia or Singapore, is the highest military professional forum of the FPDA and serves as an important platform for dialogue and exchange of views among the Defence Chiefs.

There is a Five Powers Defence Arrangements Ministerial Meeting. John Moore Minister of Defence of Australia said, "As an established multilateral security framework, the FPDA has a unique role in Asia, it is of strategic benefit to all member nations and, in Australia's view, to the wider Asia-Pacific region." Malaysia's CDF, former General Tan Sri Dato' Sri Zulkifeli Bin Mohd Zin concurred: "We can help each other... and cooperate with one another."In the latest New Zealand defence White Paper released in June 2016, it was outlined that given New Zealand was a longstanding member of the Five Power Defence Arrangements, it would, "meet its commitments should Malaysia or Singapore be subject to a military attack." On 1 November 2011, Singapore hosted FPDA's 40th anniversary celebrations, with the defence ministers and servicemen from all five signatory countries converging on Changi Air Base to participate in the event. A gala dinner was hosted by Singapore's defence minister—Dr Ng Eng Hen at Singapore's Istana whereupon they called on the Prime Minister of Singapore—Mr Lee Hsien Loong to discuss a multitude of issues.

Codenamed Exercise Bersama Lima, the three days joint exercise tested the readiness and co-operation between all participating countries and concluded on 4 November 2011. The UK has the following personnel and facilities based in Malaysia and Singapore in support of the FPDA: a small Naval facility at Sembawang in Singapore operated by Joint Forces Command and staff in the Integrated Area Defence System Headquarters at RMAF Butterworth in Penang, Malaysia. Staff at Sembawang total three Ministry of Defence civil servants, one Chief Petty Officer and one Petty officer; the present UK Defence Adviser to Singapore as of 2015 is a Royal Navy Commander. In HQ IADS, it is one Wing Commander, one Squadron Leader, one Lieutenant Commander, one Major and one Flight Sergeant.
