One for the Road is a 1980 live album and video by The Kinks. In his 1980 review of the album for Smash Hits, David Hepworth said that the album was "as convincing an argument for banning live albums as you'll find". In their brief review, Allmusic wrote that "One for the Road is a fascinating document of trailblazing elder statesmen who paved the way for heavy metal and punk, but never felt a glorious pop song was out of their grasp." All tracks written by Ray Davies. Tracks not indicated recorded at Syracuse Arena Landmark Theatre Syracuse, New York, 4 March 1980.

George Michael (sportscaster)

George Michael was an American broadcaster best known nationally for The George Michael Sports Machine, his long-running sports highlights television program. Named George Michael's Sports Final when it began as a local show in Washington, D. C. in 1980, it was nationally syndicated by NBC from 1984 until its final installment was aired on March 25, 2007. Michael won a Sports Emmy in 1985 for his work on The George Michael Sports Machine. Michael was born George Michael Gimpel in St. Louis, Missouri, on March 24, 1939, the son of Margaret and Earl Herman Gimpel, he grew up near Tower Grove Park in the city's south side, graduated from St. Louis University High School. While attending Saint Louis University, he worked as a Midwest promoter for several record labels such as Scepter and Motown, it was during this time when he made his radio broadcasting debut on a one-hour Sunday night show at midnight on WIL, which invited individual SLU students to be the hosts every week. He earned a full-time job as a disc jockey at the station after he was judged to be the best of the group.

His first radio appointment outside of his hometown was in 1962 at WRIT in Milwaukee, where he worked the 6-to-10 pm shift until he was reassigned to 5-to-9 morning drive time in early 1964. His next stop was at KBTR in Denver in 1964, working under the name "King" George Michael for the first time, he earned the nickname due to his success in "ruling" evening radio. He became one of the original Boss Jocks at WFIL in Philadelphia when its new Top 40 rock and roll format debuted on September 18, 1966, he served as music evening deejay for the next eight years. WFIL, popularly known as "Famous 56" after the transition, ended WIBG's listener ratings dominance and became the city's most popular station by the summer of 1967. Michael was the first Philadelphia rock and roll radio personality to read the scores of local high school football and basketball games on the air, he helped to start the career of Howard Eskin by hiring him to be his engineer. Decades Eskin would be a contributor to The George Michael Sports Machine.

On George's last WFIL show he played "When Will I See You Again" by the Three Degrees for the first time on any radio station. The playing of this on his show broke the song into the mainstream, within two months was a huge international hit, reaching number one in the U. K. and number two in the United States. George was personal friends with the owners of Philadelphia International Records and the song's writers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff; the aircheck of this can be heard on WFIL's tribute site www.famous56.com, where he says, "I don't know if this song will be a hit". Michael, noted for his energetic style, was hired by WABC in New York City. Michael now not only was entering the nation's largest media market. Several incidents from Michael's radio stint there have been chronicled in Morrow's autobiography. Though he was reunited with Dan Ingram and Ron Lundy, Michael's time at WABC, which ended on November 17, 1979, was frustrating because he was no longer a music director who had any influence on a playlist, much shorter than the ones with which he was more familiar.

One of the highlights during his time at the station occurred when he anchored its coverage of the New York City blackout of 1977 after the music format was temporarily suspended for the night. His first experience in sports broadcasting came in 1974 when he was a television announcer for the Baltimore Orioles on WJZ-TV, he declined an offer to work for the ballclub full-time. As part of the deal to bring him to New York, Michael worked for WABC-TV as the weekend sports anchor and a color commentator on New York Islanders telecasts for several seasons, paired with Tim Ryan, he served as an occasional substitute on ABC American Contemporary Network's Speaking of Sports show whenever Howard Cosell, the primary commentator, was on vacation or assignment. As the primary sports anchor at WRC-TV in Washington from 1980 to 2007, Michael was one of the most popular media personalities in the Washington area. Michael got significant latitude in his programming, employing a bevy of segments some viewers might consider old-fashioned, including his "Tuesday Replays" and "Wednesday Wrestling".

He had devoted extensive coverage to and was considered a significant influence in the popularity of NASCAR, broadcasting interviews with famous drivers such as Dale Earnhardt well before that sport became what it is today. An avid equestrian, Michael broadcast segments on bull riding and rodeo, he was the play-by-play announcer for most of the Professional Bull Riders's Built Ford Tough Series NBC telecasts during the 2003 and 2004 seasons, including the final day of the PBR World Finals each year. Michael covered the career of bull rider Lane Frost, killed at Cheyenne Frontier Days in 1989 by the bull he rode. Michael covered the matchups between Frost and the undefeated bull Red Rock called the Challenge of the Champions. Michael was inducted into the Cheyenne Frontier Days Hall of Fame in 2006 for his efforts. Michael's affable personality enabled him to land rare interviews with many aloof local and national sports personalities. For example, Michael's team at WRC-TV had been the only local sportscasters allowed to broadcast from inside the Washington Redskins' FedExField during the season.

Two movies, 8 Seconds and The Rookie, were inspired by stories featured on The Sports Machine. Michael made a cameo appearance in the

Luisa MarĂ­a Lara

Luisa María Lara López is a Spanish astrophysicist. Since 2010, she has been a Spanish National Research Council Researcher at the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia in the Solar System Department, her line of research deals with the study of planetary and exoplanetary atmospheres and comets through the development of physical-chemical models and remote and in situ exploration of the bodies of the Solar System. Her work has become visible thanks to her participation as a researcher on the Rosetta mission for the European Space Agency. Born in Alcalá la Real, Luisa María Lara attributes her love and pleasure of looking at the sky to her mother, who took advantage of the lack of public lighting in Puerto Lope, a small village in Granada, which allowed greater visibility, she took up astronomy at an early age – at three she was fascinated by the sky, at seven it was clear that she wanted to devote herself to science and the study of stars. She entertained herself by drawing the different phases of Venus that she saw from the terrace of the house in notebooks.

She attended secondary school in Pinos Puente, took Baccalaureate studies in Íllora, her University Orientation Course in Granada. She earned a licentiate in Physical Sciences at the University of Granada in 1989 and received her doctorate in 1993. Since 2010, she has been a CSIC Scientific Researcher at the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia in the Solar System Department, she has worked at various international institutions, such as the Paris Observatory in Meudon, the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, ESA, the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan in Tokyo. In addition, Lara has developed theoretical models of atmospheric composition to analyze the data acquired by the Herschel Space Observatory of Titan, Jupiter and Neptune; these models aim to explain the origin and abundance of water vapor, proposing different hypotheses, from vaporization of micrometeoroids to cometary impacts in these atmospheres. She has been deputy coordinator of the Space Area of the National Evaluation and Forecast Agency, as well as participating in national and international committees for the management of space science and technology, such as the ESA Solar System Working Group and the Scientific Committee of the International Space Science Institute.

In 2016 she participated as a scientific and technical researcher on the missions of the space probe Rosetta to comet 67P, on BepiColombo for the exploration of Mercury, on the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer to study Jupiter and the Galilean moons.

Cretons

In Quebec cuisine, cretons is a forcemeat-style pork spread containing onions and spices. Due to its fatty texture and taste, it resembles French rillettes. Cretons are served on toast as part of a traditional Quebec breakfast, it is not to head cheese. Recipes vary, but traditional preparation involves covering 1–3 lbs of ground pork shoulder in milk or water in a large pot seasoning with onions and a mix of spices; the blend of spices varies from recipe to recipe. Other spices used include cinnamon, ginger and bay leaf; some recipes include minced garlic. Basics The mixture is simmered over low heat, stirred to prevent scorching until all the liquid is cooked off and the mixture is thick, it is allowed to cool stirred again to incorporate all the rendered fat, transferred to a large, clean container or individual containers and refrigerated for several hours or overnight until firm. Pig marrow is often added to form a gelatin that allows it to congeal. More cretons is pork-based. However, the distinction is not made in French, with either type being cretons.

House of Jehu

The House of Jehu or Jehu dynasty was a reigning dynasty of the Kingdom of Israel. They are depicted in both of the Books of Kings, their estimated reign is placed from the 9th century to the 8th century BCE. The dynasty is named after its founder Jehu, his immediate predecessor was Jehoram of Israel of the House of Omri. Jehoram was wounded in battle during a campaign against the rival state of Aram-Damascus. Jehoram retreated to the city of Jezreel in order to recover from his wounds, but Jehu attacked and killed him there. Jehu killed Jehoram's ally, Ahaziah of Judah. Jehu was anointed as king by the prophet Elijah. According to the Books of Chronicles, Jehu was authorized to eliminate the descendants of his predecessor Ahab and all the priests of the god Baal. Jehu continued the worship of the golden calves at the holy places of Dan; the Book of Kings accuse Jehu of idolatry. The god Yahweh himself proclaimed that four generations of Jehu's descendants would hold the throne of Israel, but the dynasty would lose the throne as punishment for Jehu's idolatry.

Jehu reigned for 28 years. Jehu was succeeded by his son Jehoahaz of Israel. Jehoahaz was a vassal to the monarchs of Aram-Damascus, he was a poor administrator, the Book of Kings associate his reign with "great suffering" for his kingdom. He reigned for 17 years. Jehoahaz was succeeded by his son Jehoash of Israel. Jehoash is credited with victories over the kingdom of Aram-Damascus, with freeing the Kingdom of Israel from its subordination to the monarchs of Damascus. Jehoash was allied to the prophet Elisha, who had promised him victory over Aram-Damascus. Jehoash is mentioned mourning Elisha's death. Jehoash reigned for 16 years. Jehoash was succeeded by his son Jeroboam II. Jeroboam is depicted as a competent leader for Israel, he dominated the Arameans of Syria, reclaimed territories which the Kingdom of Israel had lost in previous conflicts. Israel's political power increased during his reign. Jeroboam reigned for 41 years. Jeroboam was succeeded by his son Zechariah of the last monarch of the House of Jehu.

Zechariah only reigned for 6 months. He was assassinated by Shallum of Israel. Jehu is mentioned in the inscriptions of King of the Neo-Assyrian Empire; the inscriptions identify Jehu as an apparent member of the House of Omri. In the Assyrian inscriptions, the designation "son of" is used to connect various rulers to the ancestral founders of each dynasty, not to their actual fathers. One modern interpretation of the Assyrian inscriptions is that Jehu was a descendant of a cadet branch of the House of Omri, which would explain his high-ranking position in the army of Israel; the second of the Books of Kings identifies Jehu as a grandson of Nimshi. His great-grandfather is not mentioned in the text. Nadav Na'aman concedes that Jehu could have been a kinsman of his predecessor Jehoram of Israel, but he considers that Shalmaneser had a different motive for legitimizing Jehu as an heir to the House of Omri. Shalmaneser's inscriptions describe as usurpers the kings Hazael of Aram-Damascus, Surri of Patina, Marduk-bêl-usâte of Karduniaš.

All three of them were Shalmaneser's enemies, their negative portrayals were used to justify the Neo-Assyrian Empire's wars against them. Surri's ancestry is unknown, Hazael was a descendant of a previous royal dynasty, Marduk-bêl-usâte had revolted against his brother Marduk-zakir-shumi I. Which means; the royal ancestry of these usurpers was deliberately ignored by Assyrian propaganda. Shalmaneser had reasons to legitimize Jehu's regime. Jehu's predecessors Ahab and Jehoram were enemies of the Neo-Assyrian Empire, had participated in military coalitions against Shalmaneser himself. On the other hand, Jehu abandoned this anti-Assyrian policy, he formally surrendered to Shalmaneser, paid tribute to Shalmaneser as his vassal. Shalmaneser had every reason to favorably depict Jehu and to acknowledge him as a "son" of the previous dynasty. Amitai Baruchi-Unna considers it that Jehu was a descendant of Omri, that his recorded hostility towards the so-called "House of Ahab" represents a fight for the throne between rival branches of the House of Omri.

Both Books of Kings and the second of the Books of Chronicles use the patronymic "son of Nimshi" for Jehu, suggesting that Nimshi himself was a famous figure of "high-lineage". Baruchi-Unna suggests that Nimshi was a brother of King Ahab. Jehu's father, would be a first cousin to Ahab's children: Ahaziah of Israel, Jehoram of Israel, Athaliah, Queen regnant of the Kingdom of Judah. Among the members of this extended House of Omri, the names Ahazia, Jehoram and Jehoshaphat are all theophoric names. With "Yhw" as their tutelary deity. While Omri and Nimshi make no reference to Yhw. Reflecting different religious tendencies among the first and second generations of the royal family on one hand, the Yhw-worshipping third generation on the other hand. On Jehu's background the Book of Kings indicate. Jehu had served as personal bodyguard under Ahab, as a general officer under Jehoram. Narratives concerning previous kings of Israel depict them appointing their own kinsmen in positions requiring such a high level of trust.

Saul had appointed his cousin Abner as the general of his army. David had appointed his nephews Amasa as the generals of his own army. Baruc
