Shameless (American TV series)

Shameless is an American comedy-drama television series developed by John Wells which debuted on Showtime on January 9, 2011. It is an adaptation of Paul Abbott's British series of the same name and features an ensemble cast led by William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum; the show is filmed throughout the city, as well as Los Angeles.

In January 2020, the series was renewed for its eleventh and final season to premiere in mid-2020; the series depicts the poor, dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father raising six children. He spends his days drunk or in search of misadventures, his children learn to take care of themselves; the show's producers sought to distinguish this production from previous American working-class shows by highlighting how Frank's alcoholism affects his family.

The show's creator Paul Abbott said, "It's not My Name Is Roseanne. It's got a much graver level of poverty attached to it. It's not blue collar. Showrunner John Wells fought efforts to place the show in a trailer park. "We have a comedic tradition of making fun of the people in those worlds," he said. "The reality is that these people aren't'the other'—they're people who live four blocks down from you and two blocks over." William H.

In December 2016, it was reported that Emmy Rossum had requested that she be paid more than William H. Macy for future seasons, to make up for previous seasons in which she was paid less than Macy; the pay dispute delayed work on an eighth season of the series, while she and Warner Bros. Television negotiated; the dispute came to an end on December 14, when Rossum confirmed through Twitter that she would continue to work on the series, with production of an eighth season to begin in May 2017. On December 19, 2016, Showtime announced that Shameless had been renewed for an eighth season. Just days after the eighth-season premiere, it was announced that the show had been renewed for a ninth, which would bring the show past the 100-episode mark. In August 2018, Rossum announced her departure from Shameless after nine seasons playing Fiona Gallagher.

Bazou is a town and commune located in the West Region of Cameroon. The town consists of 63 villages, is one of the three subdivisions of the department of Ndé. Covering around 250 km2, it is located on the high plateau of Bamileke, 950–1400 m above sea level; the name Bazou comes from the Baze expression for walking because of the long migratory marches caused by frequent internal conflicts. The economy is based on agriculture and petty trade. Local attractions include the hand-dug war trenches up to 21-km long. Bazou is 25 km from Bangangté, the main town of the department of Nde, it covers an area of about 250 km2, composed of a dense forest through mountains, high plateaus, valleys on the southern and southwestern part bordering the department of Nkam. At the edge of the Littoral Region, Bazou is made up of large savannas, it is bounded to the north by Balengou village, to the north-west by the villages of Batcha and Bamena, to the northeast by Bangoulap and Bakong villages, to the east by Bassamba village, to the southeast by Banoumga, to the south by Bagnun and Bamaha, to the west and south-west by the borough of Nord-Makombe.

There is a clear contrast between the long ridgeline from Balengou to Bangoulap and the area of the Bazou hills, with steep slopes and the picturesque sites which were once occupied by the original settlers from the Tikar plain. The land is semi-forested and shrubby with a less dense hydrographic network than those of the surrounding areas. However, there are some rivers, sometimes with a history related to that of its people, notably: Nko'ofi, Menondih, Makoua and Tsebon; the proximity to the department of Nkam has led to the intrusion of traffickers seeking slaves and forced labor. The climate is a tropical transition type influenced by topography. Local climates range from hot, humid low-altitude areas with high rainfall in the south, to cold, foggy areas in the north. There is a four-month dry season from mid-November to mid-March and an eight-month rainy season from mid-March to mid-November; the average annual rainfall is 1300 mm. The number of days of rain varies between 175 and 220; the average annual temperature is between 15.8 °C and 24.5 °C, with peak temperatures reaching 37 °C.

The economy of Bazou is based on agriculture and trade. The main agricultural products include: Food crops: maize, macabo, pineapple, gumbo, yam, sweet potato, bean, chili, solanum nigrum and squash Cash crops: Robusta coffee, Arabica coffee, oil palm Fruit trees: safou, kola nuts, avocado and citrusTraditional artisan production is prevalent, along with small-scale breeding of goats, poultry and rabbits.

Highfield runs a vertical tutoring system, meaning that students are put into registration groups with tutors who are specialised in dealing with Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Students are allocated to tutor groups. There are four houses: Babbage, Curie and Einstein, which have the house colours of yellow, red and green, respectively; the houses were known as Anglia, Mercia and Wessex before they were changed in 2008. Students can earn house points and the house with the most house points at the end of the year win the house cup.

Highfield School specialises in Science, there are many Science and Maths events including a Science Festival.

Students at Highfield, alongside Fearnhill School and many local primaries, take part in Science-related events, including a celebration evening. The school works to develop science and maths in their partner primary schools throughout the year; the original school buildings were designed using a system of standard prefabricated components, construction work started in May 1964. The prefabrication system used was SEAC Mark 1. In January 2017 the school moved into a new purpose-built £15 million building beside the old one, the latter being demolished; the new building was financed by the Education Funding Agency. North Hertfordshire District Council turned down the application on the grounds that the development would have a detrimental effect on neighbouring residential areas "due to its size and proximity to nearby buildings." They raised concerns regarding the quality of the design. However, the planning inspector dismissed these claims stating that the building would not have an adverse effect on the locale.

The Highfield School is partnered with Fearnhill School.
