Telecommunications in Mexico

Communications in Mexico are regulated by the Secretariat of Communication and Transportation, a federal executive cabinet ministry and by the Federal Telecommunications Institute. Mexico's communication services market is among the largest in Latin America, liberalized in the 1990s, with the landmark privatization of Teléfonos de México, a state-owned monopoly. Since new operators have entered the market, but Telmex still remains the dominant player. Founded on 13 May 1891, as the Secretariat of Communications and Public Works, the SCT is divided into three subsecretariats: the Subsecretariat of Infrastructure, the Subsecretariat of Communications and the Subsecretariat of Transportation; the SCT has ceded many of its regulatory functions to the Federal Telecommunications Institute. See Radio in Mexico, List of Mexican television networks and List of television stations in MexicoUsage of radio and Internet in Mexico nowadays is prevalent; the first television transmission in Mexico was conducted by Javier Stavoli in 1931.

Guillermo González Camarena built his own monochromatic camera in 1934, in 1940 he developed the first trichromatic system and obtained the first patent for color television in the world. After developing radio and television stations, in 1948, he built the studio Gon-Cam, considered the best television system in the world in the time, according to survey conducted by the Columbia College of Chicago. With the passage of the century, the television broadcasting market became dominated by two powerful companies, Televisa—the largest Spanish media company in the Spanish-speaking world — and Azteca though several dozen regional networks operate in the country. In addition, many states have their own television networks, public television has increased its market penetration in recent years. In 2014 there were 1,762 radio stations and 1,063 separately licensed analog and digital television stations. In general, the telecommunications industry is dominated by Telmex and América Móvil; the telecommunications industry was privatized in 1990 under the control of Grupo Carso and since 1996 under Carlos Slim.

Telmex has diversified its operations by incorporating mobile telephony. It has expanded its operations to Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay and the United States. Due to Mexican diverse orography—the country is crossed by two high altitude mountain ranges extending from the Rocky Mountains—providing landline telephone service at remote mountainous areas is expensive, penetration of line-phones per capita is low compared to other Latin American countries, with 20 million lines. Mobile telephony has the advantage of reaching all areas at a lower cost, due to reduced investments in required infrastructure, the total number of mobile lines in Mexico is nearly five times that of landlines, with an estimated 95 million lines; the telecommunications industry is regulated by the government through the Federal Telecommunications Institute. In April 2009, the ITESM reported 25,217,500 users. Ranking ninth in the world. November 2019, Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica signed a deal to use some of AT&T’s infrastructure in Mexico.

The satellite system is domestic with 120 earth stations. There is extensive microwave radio relay network and considerable use of fiber-optic and coaxial cable. Mexican satellites are operated by Satélites Mexicanos, a leading private company in Latin America which services both North and South America. Satmex offers broadcast and telecommunication services to 37 countries in the Americas, from Canada to Argentina. Through business partnerships, Satmex provides high-speed connectivity to ISPs and Digital Broadcast Services; the system is composed of three main satellites: Solidaridad 2, Satmex 5 and Satmex 6. The Secretariat of Communications and Transportation is in the process of deploying the Mexican Satellite System, but a launch failure has postponed the project.

Kevin Moon

Kevin John Moon is a Scottish footballer, who last played as a midfielder for Scottish League Two club Stirling Albion. He began his career with St. Johnstone and was part of the side which gained promotion to the Scottish Premier League in the 2008–09 season, he tasted promotion with Alloa Athletic and won the Scottish Challenge Cup with both St. Johnstone and Raith Rovers, he has played in Australia for ECU Joondalup SC. Moon was born in Perth on 8 June 1987, attended Luncarty Primary School and Perth Grammar School. Moon began playing football at a young age for local boys' club sides Fossoway, he joined the St. Johnstone youth set-up and was coached by Head of Youth Development, Alastair Stevenson and his successor, Tommy Campbell. Moon had played at youth level for St Johnstone and was a big part of the successful under-17 side in the 2003–04 season, that prompted then-manager John Connolly to give him his first professional contract in the summer of 2004. Among the other players given deals that summer was Andy Jackson.

Moon made his professional debut in a Scottish Challenge Cup tie against Raith Rovers at McDiarmid Park during the 2005–06 season. He came on as a substitute after 60 minutes, was impressive as the side went on to win 5–1. Having been a St Johnstone fan all his life and being well known as the "local hero" by many of the club's fans, Moon gained the nickname "Mooner" and a chant was introduced, he was known as a fans favourite. Despite injuries ruining his second season, he managed to make one more appearance from the bench during the 2005–06 campaign; the 2006–07 season saw Moon in a difficult situation, where he was too old to play for the under 19s, but not yet regarded as a first team player, for that reason manager Owen Coyle sent him on loan to Forfar Athletic for 6 months, however the loan was extended on 31 December 2006 to run through until the end of the season. After a successful loan period at Forfar, Coyle rewarded Moon with a new one-year contract; the start of the 2007–08 campaign wasn't great for Moon, after a couple of niggling injuries he never managed to force himself into recognition for a first team spot.

However, his big break came when Owen Coyle, his assistant Sandy Stewart, left St Johnstone to join English Football League Championship side Burnley, Moon's teammate Derek McInnes was appointed as player/manager until the end of the season. Upon being appointed as manager, McInnes revealed to the local press that he was a big admirer of Moon's talents, showed this by giving him his first league start away to Clyde at Broadwood Stadium on 29 December 2007, where Moon capped off a man of the match performance with a late goal. St Johnstone won 3–1, he scored his second goal for the club after coming off the bench against Stirling Albion at McDiarmid Park in January 2008, his goal meant that St Johnstone won the game 2–1. Moon made 7 starts, 14 appearances from the bench during the campaign, scoring three times. McInnes gave Moon a new one-year deal in May 2008, with a view to an extension if he impressed during the 2008–09 campaign and in the January, Moon penned a new contract with the club until May 2011.

He started a game at East End Park against Dunfermline Athletic in November 2008, where after 20 minutes, Stephen Glass made a late tackle on Moon in which he studded his diaphragm. This caused Moon to stop breathing, lose consciousness, he regained consciousness before he left the ground. After this small setback, Moon started again at Dens Park against rivals Dundee in November. Moon played an integral part in St Johnstone's promotion to the Scottish Premier League whilst Jody Morris was out of the side injured. Moon started off his SPL season in good form, scored his first top flight goal with a late equaliser against Dundee United at Tannadice. However, in March 2010 in a midweek clash with Aberdeen, he was badly injured in a clash with midfielder Mark Kerr, was stretchered off having played a massive part in St. Johnstone's victory by then. At first, it was reported that Moon had damaged his medial ligament and would be back within 4–6 weeks. However, following further scans it was discovered that he had torn his cruciate ligament and would be out for 6 months.

He made some appearances near the end of the 2010–11 season after returning from injury. Moon was given a short term contract to further prove his fitness, he became a first team regular in the early part of the 2011–12 season and was given an extended contract by new manager Steve Lomas. The 2012–13 season was one of frustration for Moon, who found himself isolated by Lomas, he subsequently left St. Johnstone in January 2013 by mutual consent. Moon went on loan to Forfar on 31 August 2006 the deal was until 31 December 2006, however it was extended until 15 May 2007. Moon made 25 appearances for 23 starts and 2 substitute appearances, netting twice, he was voted Players' Player of the Year and Fans' Player of the Year at the end of season awards, despite being a great success, Moon couldn't prevent them from being relegated to the Scottish Third Division. Alloa Athletic manager Paul Hartley signed Moon in February 2013 after he was released by St Johnstone. Moon made it clear that Hartley was the main factor in his decision to join the club, with the manager promising to provide him with a platform to rediscover his fitness and gain a professional contract from a bigger club.

He signed with'The Wasps' until the end of the 2012–13 season. Moon signed for Raith Rovers on 28 May 2013 on an initial one-year deal, he was part of the Raith Rovers side which beat Rangers in the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup in the 2013-14 season. Moon extended his contract with Raith fo

1982 NBA draft

The 1982 NBA draft took place on June 29, 1982, at the Felt Forum at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. Brent Musburger reported for CBS in the days leading up to the draft that the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks were working on a wider-ranging deal that would have sent Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to New York, Bill Cartwright to the Utah Jazz, either the #1 or #2 pick from Utah to Los Angeles, with the Lakers planning to select both Ralph Sampson and James Worthy; when Sampson decided to forego entering the draft and to return for another season at the University of Virginia, the deal fell apart and the Lakers picked Worthy with the #1 overall choice. These post-second round picks have appeared in at least one regular or postseason game in the NBA. General Specific NBA.com NBA.com: NBA Draft History

Eeny Teeny Maya Moe

"Eeny Teeny Maya Moe" is the sixteenth episode of The Simpsons' twentieth season. It aired on the Fox network in the United States on April 5, 2009. Moe falls in love with a woman named Maya; when Moe meets her in person, she turns out to be a dwarf. They remain in love, but his tactless attitude to her size drives her away. Meanwhile, in an attempt to spend more time with Maggie, Homer inadvertently drops her off at a playground full of bullies. Homer ends up bringing her to Moe's Tavern. Moe is cleaning up the bar for a date, finds out he has a window, obscured by layers of grime. Outside the window is a playground, which Homer sees as an opportunity for watching Maggie while spending time at Moe's. Homer sends Maggie to play with the other babies outside. Marge notices Maggie is uncomfortable when she returns home one day, becomes worried that Homer is neglecting her. After watching a commercial about a surveillance camera fixed in the eye of a teddy bear, Marge purchases a spy camera which she attaches to Maggie's hair band and discovers that Maggie is bullied by a group of gangster babies.

At first, Marge is surprised to see Maggie being tormented by the babies, but sees Homer, after he discovered the truth about the other babies from the playground, rush to Maggie's rescue and be beaten up by Kearney's son. Maggie jumps to Homer's rescue and Homer says that he loves both her and Marge. Moved to tears, Marge tells Homer. Meanwhile, Moe's date, whom he met over the Internet, turns out to be a little person named Maya. Moe still is worried about what his friends will think. Moe decides to take Maya on a double date with Marge and Homer, neither of whom seem to care that she is small. Homer, seeing Maya's sensitivity, suggests Moe marry her. Moe can not resist making jokes about Maya's height. Insulted, she rejects him. Crushed by grief, Moe consults the advice of Lenny and Carl, who advise him to do something risky to win Maya back. Moe decides to have surgery to become shorter, Dr. Nick Riviera agrees to conduct the surgery. Maya stops Moe just before the surgery, as she wants someone who sees her as "beautiful" not "short", who does not need to cut himself down to her size in order to love her.

Moe, intent on having the surgery, does not listen to Maya, she leaves him for good. Homer consoles a dejected Moe, stating that though things did not go well with Maya, Moe found love with a woman who loved him back and that if he was successful once, he will be successful again. Moe wonders how a small woman like Maya could make him feel so big; the title is a parody of the children's rhyme, "Eeny Meeny Miny Moe". Kearney's son banging the three bottles together on his fingers is reference to the 1979 film The Warriors. A play on a theme from one of Philip Glass's scores is heard during the commercial about "leaving your kids unguarded". Moe references people that live in trees Tarzan and The Berenstain Bears. Upon learning that Maya finds him attractive, Moe joyfully utters the nonsense phrase "Oh, frabjulous day, calloo callay!", a reference to a similar line in the Lewis Carroll poem "Jabberwocky". When Moe turns on the television in Maya's house, it is showing a scene from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory featuring the Oompa Loompas singing.

Maya tells Moe that the photo of herself she shared with Moe over the internet was taken at Legoland. When Moe meets Maya in person he tears down an advertisement for dwarf tossing and throws out a copy of Little Women. Shortly afterwards, he asks Maya "So, have you always been this size, or is this, like, a Benjamin Button deal?". Moe states that he is a snake handler, mentioned in the 1992 episode "Homer the Heretic". Since airing, the episode has received positive reviews from television critics. Robert Canning, a reviewer of IGN.com gave the episode a 7.6/10 and said when Homer consoled Moe about getting broken up with, it was "a sweet way to end this enjoyable episode". Erich Asperschlager of TV Verdict wrote: "Spending too much time away from the family has always been tricky for The Simpsons. Letting minor characters shine can be fun, but let’s face it: people tune in to watch the Simpsons, not the Szyslaks, or the Flanderses, or the Leonard-Carlsons. Again, spending too much time with the family can be exhausting.

This week, The Simpsons hit a nice middle ground, spending most of the episode on Moe’s short-lived relationship but backing it up with a Homer-Maggie-Marge B-plot. Neither story soared to great heights, but'Eeny Teeny Maya Moe' was a solid entry in a solid season."Hank Azaria was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for his role as Moe Szyslak in this episode, but lost to fellow Simpsons cast member Dan Castellaneta for "Father Knows Worst". John Frink was nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award in the Animation category in 2010 for writing the episode; the Simpsons was the only show to be nominated in the category, with the other nominated episodes being "The Burns and the Bees", "Take My Life, Please", "Gone Maggie Gone" and "Wedding for Disaster". The last one was the winner. "Eeny Teeny Maya Moe" at TV.com "Eeny Teeny Maya Moe" on IMDb
