Radio edit

In music, a radio edit is a modification truncated, intended to make a song more suitable for airplay, whether it be adjusted for length, subject matter, instrumentation, or form. Radio edits may be used for commercial single versions, which may be denoted as the 7" version. However, not all "radio edit" tracks are played on radio. Radio edits shorten a long song in order to make it more commercially viable for radio stations; the normal length for songs played on the radio is 3 to 4 minutes. The amount of cut content differs however, ranging from a few seconds to half of a song being cut, it is common for radio edits to have outros. In the intro, any kind of musical build-up is removed, or, if there is no such build-up, an extensive intro is halved. In the outro the song will fade out earlier, common on tracks with long instrumental endings, or, if it doesn't fade out, a part before the ending will be cut out, it is frequent that a chorus is repeated less towards the end. However, if necessary, many radio edits will edit out verses, bridges, or interludes in between.

An example is the radio edit of'Heroes' by David Bowie, which fades in shortly before the beginning of the third verse and fades out shortly before the vocal vamping at the end of the song. Another example is B.o. B's song, "Nothin' On You" featuring Bruno Mars, whose radio edit skips the first five seconds & starts with the sixth second in which Bruno Mars starts singing the first chorus; the second half of the first chorus is sometimes skipped, along with the last 24 seconds, the normal fade-out part in which B.o. B says, "Yeah, that's just how we do it/And I'ma let this ride/B.o. B and Bruno Mars", the radio edit ends with the fourth and last chorus with an earlier fade-out. A third example would be the song, "The Man" by Aloe Blacc, in which the radio edit skips the "I'm the man/Go ahead & tell everybody/What I'm saying ya all" part & the first ten seconds; the third chorus of the song is shortened. Some songs will be remixed and feature different arrangements than the original longer versions even being different recordings.

A popular example of this is "Revolution" by The Beatles, a different recording from the version which appears on The White Album. Another example is Miley Cyrus's "Adore You", whose original album version is a slow, quiet version clocking in at 4 minutes & 37 seconds. An attempt at a radio edit for Arlo Guthrie's 18-minute epic "Alice's Restaurant" scrapped the entire monologue that served as the main base of the song's popularity and instead was a 4-minute, three-verse rock and roll song; this became more prevalent with the rise of the 12" record, as artists like New Order started making songs for the format. Many of the 7" mixes aimed for pop radio airplay of their songs feature different arrangements, such as "Bizarre Love Triangle", or a different recording, such as "Temptation"; some long songs do not have a radio edit, despite being as long as 5, 6, 7, or 8 minutes in length due to listener demand from radio stations. Examples of this include the following 10 songs: "Vicarious" by Tool at 7 minutes and 6 seconds, "Hey Jude" by The Beatles at 7 minutes and 11 seconds long, "You're the Voice" by John Farnham at 5 minutes and 4 seconds long, "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin at 8 minutes and 3 seconds, "One" by Metallica at 7 minutes and 24 seconds, "American Pie" by Don McLean with a length of 8 minutes and 32 seconds, "Georgia Dome" by Ying Yang Twins at 6 minutes and 6 seconds, "Like a Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan at 6 minutes & 13 seconds, "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" by Elton John at 6 minutes & 45 seconds, "Again" by Fetty Wap at 5 minutes and 13 seconds.

The idea of extended songs receiving airplay on commercial radio was rare until the birth of progressive radio in the mid-1960s. On rare occasions, a radio edit might be longer than the original album version; this may occur when the song is edited for form, such as in the cases of "Creep" by Radiohead, "2 On" by Tinashe, "Miserable" by Lit. "Creep"'s radio edit has a 4-second drumstick count off before the regular first second, "2 On" repeats part of the chorus 1 more time than it does on the normal version, Miserable's radio edit adds the chorus between the first and second verses. Some radio edits lengthen some parts of the song while shortening others. For example, the radio edit of "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran has a 6-second introduction before the first verse but in the song cuts from the end of the second verse to the beginning of the last chorus, omitting the second chorus and the guitar solo. Different radio stations may edit songs differently for length; the syndicated radio format "QuickHitz", notably adopted by the Calgary radio station CKMP-FM in August 2014, utilizes shorter edits of songs, from 1 minute and 30 seconds to 2 minutes in length.

In the song "The Entertainer" by Billy Joel, he alludes directly to radio edits for time: "You've heard my latest record, It's been on the radio.

William Hart-Bennett

William M. Hart-Bennett was a British government official who served overseas, he was a British colonial minister in Nassau, Bahamas and a governor of British Honduras from 29 January 1918 to 4 September 1918, before, employed as Colonial Secretary of the Bahamas. Hart-Bennett was married on 27 April 1899 to Ella Mary Tuck, the daughter of Charles E. Tuck and his second wife Emily Mary Tuck of Norwich, England. Ella was a prominent figure in Nassau's society, she was president of the Nassau Dumb Friends League and a member of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire. She is best remembered as the author of the book An English Girl In Japan. Ella died at the age of 49 in the sinking of the RMS Empress of Ireland on 29 May 1914. Bennett himself died on 4 September 1918 from injuries sustained in a fire on 17 August 1918, when a flagpole at the courthouse fell on him. A new building was completed in 1926, its clock tower memorializes him

Ribonuclease V1

Ribonuclease V1 is a ribonuclease enzyme found in the venom of the Caspian cobra. It cleaves double-stranded RNA in a non-sequence-specific manner requiring a substrate of at least six stacked nucleotides. Like many ribonucleases, the enzyme requires the presence of magnesium ions for activity. Purified RNase V1 is a used reagent in molecular biology experiments. In conjunction with other ribonucleases that cleave single-stranded RNA after specific nucleotides or sequences – such as RNase T1 and RNase I – it can be used to map internal interactions in large RNA molecules with complex secondary structure or to perform footprinting experiments on macromolecular complexes containing RNA. RNase V1 is the only used laboratory RNase that provides positive evidence for the presence of double-stranded helical conformations in target RNA; because RNase V1 has some activity against RNA, base-paired but single-stranded, dual susceptibility to both RNase V1 and RNase I at a single site in a target RNA molecule provides evidence of this unusual conformation found in RNA loops.

RNase V1 played a important role in the elucidation of the distinctive stem-loop structure of transfer RNA. It has been extensively used to study the structured RNA genomes of retroviruses, such as hepatitis C, dengue virus, HIV. Together with S1 nuclease, which cleaves single-stranded RNA, it can be used to profile the secondary structure propensities of messenger RNA molecules, a procedure that can be applied to whole transcriptomes when paired with deep sequencing
