The Game of Love (Santana song)

"The Game of Love" is a song performed by Latin rock band Santana from their eighteenth studio album Shaman. The vocal performance on the song is by Michelle Branch, it was composed by Rick Nowels. The song was released as a single in 2002, won a Grammy Award for "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals", as well as peaking at No. 5 in on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The song reached number one in Poland and was a top-ten hit in Canada, New Zealand and Spain; the song had been recorded with New Radicals frontman Gregg Alexander, but producer Clive Davis felt a female voice would maximize the song's appeal and a recording of Santana performing "The Game of Love" with Tina Turner as vocalist was completed. When Turner declined to participate in making a video for the track, Davis recruited Macy Gray to record a replacement vocal; when Davis was not satisfied with that version, Michelle Branch was asked to record the song, with Branch's rhythm guitar playing added to the track. Branch said, "It was the first time for me to sing somebody else's song.

I'm like:'Oh I want it this way' and I'm in charge... I didn't meet, I didn't know what was going on... It felt to me like wow it seems like there's so much at stake, I'm going to go in there and just sing my heart out and just cross my fingers."The Tina Turner version of "The Game of Love" was issued on the 2007 retrospective Ultimate Santana. Santana said "There's only one Tina Turner... No one can hit a note like Tina Turner... I love Michelle and she did a great interpretation of it. It's just that with all honor and respect to Michelle, there's the girl and there's the woman, Michelle is unfolding into a woman...but it takes time to go from a girl into a woman." The music video depicts Santana and Branch in an alley with couples around them, each expressing their love for one another. The director was Paul Fedor and the video was filmed in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, with cameo appearances by Wesley Snipes, Helen Hunt and Jennifer Garner.

Miyako Matsumoto

Miyako Matsumoto is a Japanese professional wrestler and actress. She is best known for her work in the Ice Ribbon promotion, where she is a former two-time ICE×60, three-time Triangle Ribbon Champion and a two-time International Ribbon Tag Team Champion, making her the promotion's second Triple Crown Champion, she wrestles for Oz Academy and Reina Joshi Puroresu and has promoted her own shows under the Gake no Fuchi Puroresu banner. After graduating from Nihon University's College of Art, Matsumoto embarked on a career as an actress, most notably working on the television series Muscle Venus, forming an idol group with fellow cast members Hikaru Shida, Hina Kozuki, Ichiko Mayu, Sachiko Koga, Tomoyo Morihisa, Tsukasa Fujimoto, Yuki Ueda and Yuri Natsume. In 2008, the Muscle Venus group, excluding Kozuki and Natsume, was cast in a film titled Three Count, set in the world of professional wrestling and starring veteran professional wrestlers Emi Sakura, Kyoko Inoue and Yoshiko Tamura; as part of their roles, all members began training professional wrestling under Sakura.

Matsumoto made her debut for Emi Sakura's Ice Ribbon promotion on July 29, 2008, wrestling Yuki Ueda to a three-minute time limit draw. Though all Muscle Venus members made their debuts around the same time, only Matsumoto, Hikaru Shida and Tsukasa Fujimoto lasted more than six months, making new careers out of professional wrestling. Matsumoto's wrestling character included her wearing different cosplay outfits, dancing in the middle of matches, intentionally botching spots and other comedic behaviour. Matsumoto gained her first victory on December 13; the following month, despite her unimpressive win-loss record, Matsumoto declared herself the "ace" of all professional wrestling, before unsuccessfully challenging Kiyoko Ichiki for Ice Ribbon's top title, the ICE×60 Championship. The following summer, Matsumoto started a storyline rivalry with International Wrestling Association of Japan manager Haru Miyako, which led to her bringing her associates to face Matsumoto sporadically for the next two years.

On December 31, 2009, Matsumoto made her debut for NEO Japan Ladies Pro Wrestling in a three-way match to determine the "number one Matsumoto". The match, which included Dump Matsumoto, was won by Hiroyo Matsumoto. On March 21, 2010, Matsumoto won her first championship, when she scored an upset victory over Tsukasa Fujimoto to become the new ICE×60 Champion; the following day, Matsumoto defeated defending champion Riho and Kazumi Shimouna in a three-way match to become the new Triangle Ribbon Champion. After a successful ICE×60 Championship defense against Makoto on March 27, Matsumoto's luck started to change, when she first was defeated in a DDT Pro-Wrestling Extreme Division Championship match by Gentaro on March 31 lost the ICE×60 Championship to Riho on April 3, also lost the Triangle Ribbon Championship to Nanae Takahashi on April 17; as Matsumoto was left weeping in the ring, she was approached by deathmatch wrestler Jun Kasai, whom she had earlier declared as her favorite wrestler, who proceeded to suggest that the two should go for the International Ribbon Tag Team Championship together.

On May 3, Matsumoto and Kasai, dubbed "385Myankie's", defeated the defending champions Passion Red and the team of Gentaro and Keita Yano in a three-way hardcore match to win the International Ribbon Tag Team Championship. With the win, Matsumoto became Ice Ribbon second Triple Crown Champion, after Riho. Afterwards, Matsumoto began feuding with Chii Tomiya. On July 19, Matsumoto and Kasai made their first successful title defense against the team of Tomiya and Command Bolshoi. On August 7, Matsumoto and Kasai lost the International Ribbon Tag Team Championship to Tomiya and Isami Kodaka in their second defense. On September 23, Matsumoto and Jaki Numazawa unsuccessfully challenged The Great Kojika, Mr. #6 and Riho for the DDT Jiyugaoka Six-Person Tag Team, DDT Nihonkai Six-Man Tag Team and UWA World Trios Championships. As Kasai was not a regular member of Ice Ribbon's roster and only made sporadic appearances for the promotion, Matsumoto went on to join Hikaru Shida, Mochi Miyagi and Tsukasa Fujimoto to form the "Ichinisanshidan" stable.

On November 23, Matsumoto and Shida unsuccessfully challenged Emi Sakura and Nanae Takahashi for the International Ribbon Tag Team Championship. Meanwhile, Matsumoto continued her rivalry with Chii Tomiya, now a member of rival stable Heisei YTR, building to a hardcore match on March 21, 2011, where Matsumoto and Jun Kasai defeated Tomiya and Kazuhiko Ogasawara. After a losing streak, which included several losses against rookie Maki Narumiya, Matsumoto was defeated on May 11 by Emi Sakura 11–0 in a twenty-minute Iron Man match, which led to Sakura telling her to start improving her game; this led to Matsumoto challenging ICE×60 Champion Tsukasa Fujimoto to a title match, where she offered to put her Ice Ribbon career on the line. On May 25, Matsumoto failed in her title match against Fujimoto and, as a result, left Ice Ribbon. Matsumoto went on to form her own Gake no Fuchi Puroresu promotion. GakePro's events have featured appearances from Ice Ribbon wrestlers like Emi Sakura and Tsukasa Fujimoto, as well as well known male wrestlers like Great Sasuke, Munenori Sawa, Tsuyoshi Kikuchi.

On December 3, Matsumoto returned to Ice Ribbon, in storyline being brought back by Ken Ohka to attack his estranged tag team partner Hikari Minami. The following day and Ohka defeated Minami and Makoto Oishi in a tag team match. On December 25 at RibbonMania, the reunited Matsumot

Allied Joint Force Command Naples

Allied Joint Force Command Naples is a NATO military command based in Lago Patria, in the Metropolitan City of Naples, Italy—the base was located in the Bagnoli quarter of Naples. It was activated on 15 March 2004, after what was a redesignation of its predecessor command, Allied Forces Southern Europe formed in 1951. AFSOUTH in NATO Military Command Structure terms was a "Major Subordinate Command". Commander JFC Naples reports to the Supreme Allied Commander Europe at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, Belgium. Allied Forces Southern Europe was one of two major NATO commands in the Mediterranean area, the other being Allied Forces Mediterranean based on the island of Malta, responsible for naval activities in the region. While Admiral Robert B. Carney of the U. S. Navy was appointed as Commander-in-Chief Allied Forces Southern Europe on 19 June 1951, AFMED was not activated until 1953; the delay was due to negotiations and compromises between the Americans and the British, who wished to retain one of their commanders over Britain's traditional sea lines of communication stretching through the Mediterranean to the Suez Canal and beyond.

From 1951 to 2003, the Commander-in-Chief of Allied Forces Southern Europe was always a United States Navy admiral, based at Naples, who held the US Navy position of Commander-in-Chief United States Naval Forces Europe and functioned as the Navy service component commander for United States European Command within the US-only chain of command. AFSOUTH headquarters was established at Naples; the initial command arrangements for AFSOUTH consisted of the classic three land and air headquarters preferred by Eisenhower. Allied Land Forces Southern Europe, Allied Naval Forces Southern Europe, Allied Air Forces Southern Europe were all established in Italy. Greece and Turkey joined the alliance in early 1952. On 8 September 1952, a new allied land command, Allied Land Forces South-Eastern Europe, was created with its headquarters in Izmir, under the command of a U. S. officer, Lieutenant General Willard G. Wyman. Under this command, with its headquarters in Izmir assisted by the subordinate Thessaloniki Advanced Command Post, were to be most of the Greek and Turkish armies in case of war.

The first AIRSOUTH commander became U. S. Major General David M. Schlatter, USAF. On 14 October 1953, the Sixth Allied Tactical Air Force was established in Izmir, commanded by Major General R. E. L. Easton, USAF, responsible to Allied Air Forces Southern Europe for the air defence of Greece and Turkey. Three national air Commands were assigned to it: the Turkish 1st and 3rd Tactical Air Forces, the Greek Air Force's Royal Hellenic 28th Tactical Air Force. In terms of actual forces this meant two Greek wings and four Turkish fighter-bomber groups of F-84 aircraft, plus some B-26A Mosquitoes. In 1953, the various national naval forces within Allied Forces Mediterranean were organised into six Sub-Principal Subordinate Commands, each commanded by an Admiral. In time of war, CINCAFMED would be responsible for securing the Sea lines of communications throughout the Mediterranean Sea; some of AFSOUTH's first exercises took place in 1952. Operation Ancient Wall was a series of military maneuvers involving ground small unit tactical training, land-based tactical air support, carrier-based air support under the overall command of Admiral Carney.

Exercise Grand Slam was a combined naval exercise held in the Mediterranean Sea between 25 February to 16 March 1952. The exercise included allied warships escorting three convoys of supply ships which were subjected to repeated simulated air and submarine attacks, as well as anti-submarine warfare operations and naval gunfire shore bombardment. Operation Longstep was a ten-day naval exercise held in the Mediterranean Sea held during November 1952, it involved over 170 warships and 700 aircraft, it featured a large-scale amphibious assault along the western coast of Turkey.1953 AFSOUTH exercises included: "Italic Weld" — a combined air-naval-ground exercise in northern Italy involving the United States, Italy and Greece "Weldfast" — a combined amphibious landing exercise in the Mediterranean Sea involving British, Italian, U. S. naval forcesIn 1957, Operation Deep Water simulated the defence of the Dardanelles from a Soviet attack. The exercise included an 8,000 strong amphibious landing; the drawdown of the British Mediterranean Fleet, the military difficulties of the politically-decided command structure, the withdrawal of the French from the military command structure forced a rearrangement of the command arrangements in the southern region.

Allied Forces Mediterranean was disbanded on 5 June 1967, all forces in the south and the Mediterranean assigned to AFSOUTH. AFSOUTH continued to conduct exercises in the 1960s and 1970s, among, exercise'Dawn Patrol,' a five-nation naval and air exercise conducted throughout the Mediterranean in 1974; the U. S. contribution to the exercise was based on the USS America carrier battle group. During the 1960s Exercise Deep Furrow appears to have been held annually. Deep Furrow, will be conducted from 20–29 September 1973 in the southern region of Allied Command Europe. Forces from Greece and other countries in AF South Command will participate in Exercise Deep Furrow 73, scheduled annually by CINCSOUTH. Land forces will hold maneuvers in Greek and Turkish Thrace and naval Force will exercise in the Eastern Mediterranean, including the Aegean Sea; as part of the exercise

Truman Lowe

Truman Tennis Lowe was an American Ho-Chunk sculptor and installation artist. A professor of fine art at the University of Wisconsin, Lowe was a curator of contemporary art at the National Museum of the American Indian, he is known for large site-specific installation pieces utilizing natural materials. Lowe was born on January 1, 1944 in Black River Falls, Wisconsin on the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin reservation to Mabel Davis and Martin Lowe; the youngest of six siblings, Truman was thirteen years younger than Irene. Mabel worked a variety of positions as a laundress; when at home in Black River Falls, Martin was a farmer as well as traveling as a seasonal worker, picking blueberries and cranberries throughout the state. Surrounded by close family, Winnebago was the language spoken at home; as a child, Lowe attended school at the Black River Indian Mission until grade 6, switching in 1957 to the non-Native school in Black River Falls proper. Starting in 1960 he worked during the summer at the Wisconsin Dells, "playing Indian" amongst other Native performers during an evening performance for tourists.

Other summers he worked for the Dells Chamber of Commerce, dressing up in an "Indian costume" to greet tourists as they walked the streets, serving as a tour guide on the Dell's excursion boats, again in "costume". Lowe's experience as a "stereotype" tour guide would influence aspects of his work. Graduating from New Lisbon High School in the early 1960s, he applied and was accepted by the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse. After switching majors, he settled on art education, studied all aspects of fine art media. Midway through his college experience. In 1966 he married Nancy Knabe. A non-Native, of German and Norwegian descent, they were married at her family's church, Lyster Lutheran in Church Valley, Wisconsin. After their marriage, Nancy taught high school Home Economics while Lowe finished his undergraduate degree. Upon graduation, the couple moved to Valders, Wisconsin where, while creating artwork on his spare time, he taught elementary and secondary art classes. After teaching for two years, Lowe was accepted to the University of Wisconsin–Madison for fine arts, sponsored by a Ford Foundation fellowship.

On October 2, 1971, his daughter Tonia Alison was born. Lowe on his reasons for returning to obtain his Masters: I knew how to teach, but I wanted access to current information, as much information as I could get my hands on, in order to be able to better help my students. After graduating in 1973, the Lowes moved to Emporia, Kansas where Truman was a visiting art lecturer at Emporia State University, teaching only for about two years before returning to Madison, serving as assistant dean of Multicultural Programming at University of Wisconsin. In 1975, Nancy gave birth to their second child, son Martin Howard, that same year Lowe was given a joint appointment at Madison in the Native American studies program, as well as assistant professor of sculpture, which he retained until 1988. While exhibiting and working on his art work, Lowe becomes tenured at University of Wisconsin–Madison being promoted to associate professor of art in 1984. After being promoted to professor of art in 1989, Lowe was elected as chair of the art department from 1992–1995.

In 2000 Lowe was appointed the curator of contemporary art for the National Museum of the American Indian. Taking a leave of absence from the university, Lowe curated the inaugural exhibition featuring artists George Morrison and Allan Houser, remaining as curator until 2008; as a child, Lowe would collect rocks along the Black River, scratching the river rocks together to create drawings by using the smaller rocks as pastels upon larger rocks. Lowe experimented with using rocks as pigment with substances such as motor oil and Vaseline. Disappointed with this process, he explored nature by creating drawings of "how snow sits on trees," and taking his study hall time in the high school art room. While growing up, his family created "craft" objects, which provided minor supplemental income to the family, his mother made split-ash baskets while his father made the wooden handles for the baskets, both of his parents created beadwork. The children learned the skills to create these family works, Lowe learning beadwork by kerosene lamp in the evening as a young man.

These Lowe family creations were made for the tourist trade, delivering the freshly made creations by station wagon to the Wisconsin Dells, providing an offset from the seasonal farming positions the family participated in. During the summer, when the family was involved in seasonal work, they sold their crafts from a roadside stand they traveled with. Like many other Native artists Lowe was instilled with a degree of comfort regarding the creative practice of creation within the household, he wasn't aware of the Western idea of making a living full-time by art until he attended university. At university he delved into the concepts and creations revolving within Western art history. I read everything I could get my hands on about Michelangelo.... He was the first artist I'd met through my studies who went to work everyday and was paid by his patrons employers for making art. I learned encyclopedias from the work, but the practical lesson was that art could be a profession as well as a p
