The Meaning of Love

"The Meaning of Love" is the fifth UK single by Depeche Mode released on 26 April 1982 and recorded at Blackwing Studios. The single version of "The Meaning of Love" is the same as the album version from A Broken Frame; the "Fairly Odd Mix" is an extended version with electronic experimentation added to the original mix. The B-side is "Oberkorn", an atmospheric instrumental written by Martin Gore as an intro for the A Broken Frame Tour, in the town of Oberkorn, Luxembourg. A longer version called the "Development Mix" features an ambient intro followed by the original song, afterwards has a new arrangement of music; the video for "The Meaning of Love" was the second video with Alan Wilder, although he did not contribute to the song. The director was Julien Temple; the video was not included on the Some Great Videos VHS compilation because it was not well-liked by the band. The single was not released in the United States, but the 12" "Fairly Odd Mix" of the song features on the B-side of the "See You" US 12" single.

Green River Ordinance (band)

Green River Ordinance is an American rock band from Fort Worth, United States. Their name refers to Green River Ordinances, laws which prohibit door-to-door sales unless the house's owner gives permission to do so. Bassist Geoff Ice and guitarist Jamey Ice are brothers. Early in their career, the band did opening gigs with Flickerstick in Texas, by 2005 had toured with Collective Soul and played with Eisley and Mutemath, among others; the band's initial releases, a 2005 full-length and a 2007 EP, were both released on the small independent label For Mona. Their debut release for Virgin Records, Out of My Hands, was released in February 2009, garnered comparisons to 1990s mainstream rock acts such as Sister Hazel, Third Eye Blind and Matchbox 20, as well as contemporaries like Augustana and The Fray. Out of My Hands peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The single "Come On" reached No. 17 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 late in 2009. In 2009 and 2010, GRO saw two Top 40 radio singles, songs on over 20 television shows, two music videos on MTV and VH1, as well as tours with several nationally touring artists, such as Goo Goo Dolls, Collective Soul, Train and American Idol winners David Cook & Kris Allen.

Billboard Magazine stated, "Green River Ordinance has established itself as a pop-rock act to keep an eye on in 2010." GRO's original song "Rise Up" was featured on the AT&T Team USA Soundtrack alongside Mariah Carey, 3 Doors Down and Rascal Flatts. Their Capitol/Virgin Records debut album Out of My Hands and various singles were featured on Zune, Walmart.com, AmazonMP3, iTunes and Napster as Staff Picks, Song of the Day, What’s Hot, Track of the Week, other promotions. GRO left EMI on August 6, 2010 and 14 days proceeded to go on tour with Goo Goo Dolls and Switchfoot, they were featured on every episode of MTV's show "If You Really Knew Me" and had their video "On Your Own" featured after shows during credits on MTV, all of this while being independent of any label ties. On September 6, 2010, GRO released "The Morning Passengers - Acoustic Sessions EP" to iTunes only, it reached No 3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, as well as the No. 39 on Billboard Independent Albums. After leaving EMI, GRO turned to Kickstarter to raise over $40,000 from their fans in order to produce a new album.

While recording the new album, amidst touring, they released two additional EPs: Songs We Like From Before We Were Born and Waterhope. The band released their third studio album, Under Fire, on February 28, 2012, they began a national tour, Under Fire - The North American Tour", on March 29, 2012 in support of album, with Graham Colton as their opener. The album was funded by their fans, through the launch of a Kickstarter campaign over a year earlier; the album features the hit Texas Country song, "Dancing Shoes," as well as "Heart of Me." On September 23, 2015, the band announced that their fourth full-length studio album, would be released on January 22, 2016, through Residence Music. In April 2010, Green River Ordinance launched their own charity site, in order to help make a difference for those less fortunate. Through this site, Green River Ordinance offers ten songs for purchase and information on five charities each member of the band picked; the consumer can select which of the songs they would like to purchase and select which band member's charity they would like their money to go toward.

100% of the proceeds go to the charity of the consumer's choice. On October 8, 2010, International Justice Mission released the compilation album Freedom through Family Christian Stores as a joint effort to raise funds and awareness to end global slavery. Green River Ordinance is featured with their song "Don't Give Up." They are alongside the biggest names in contemporary Christian music and are one of the only secular artists on the compilation due to their zealous passion on the topic of slavery. 13,000 physical units were sold the first week in stores. On October 15, 2010, Green River Ordinance was direct support for Bon Jovi in Gulf Shores, AL as part of the BP-sponsored concert series "Concerts for the Coast," done in hopes of attracting tourists to the region in the off-season during the oil spill recovery. There were 37,000+ people in attendance.

Competitive exclusion principle

In ecology, the competitive exclusion principle, sometimes referred to as Gause's law, is a proposition named for Georgy Gause that two species competing for the same limited resource cannot coexist at constant population values. When one species has the slightest advantage over another, the one with the advantage will dominate in the long term; this leads either to the extinction of the weaker competitor or to an evolutionary or behavioral shift toward a different ecological niche. The principle has been paraphrased in the maxim "complete competitors can not coexist"; the competitive exclusion principle is classically attributed to Georgii Gause, although he never formulated it. The principle is present in Darwin's theory of natural selection. Throughout its history, the status of the principle has oscillated between a priori and experimental truth. Based on field observations, Joseph Grinnell formulated the principle of competitive exclusion in 1904: "Two species of the same food habits are not to remain long evenly balanced in numbers in the same region.

One will crowd out the other". Georgy Gause formulated the law of competitive exclusion based on laboratory competition experiments using two species of Paramecium, P. aurelia and P. caudatum. The conditions were to add input a constant flow of food. Although P. caudatum dominated, P. aurelia recovered and subsequently drove P. caudatum extinct via exploitative resource competition. However, Gause was able to let the P. caudatum survive by differing the environmental parameters. Thus, Gause's law is valid. Gause studied competition between two species of yeast, finding that Saccharomyces cerevisiae outcompeted Schizosaccharomyces kefir by producing a higher concentration of ethyl alcohol. Competitive exclusion is predicted by mathematical and theoretical models such as the Lotka-Volterra models of competition. However, for poorly understood reasons, competitive exclusion is observed in natural ecosystems, many biological communities appear to violate Gause's law; the best-known example is the so-called "paradox of the plankton".

All plankton species live on a limited number of resources solar energy and minerals dissolved in the water. According to the competitive exclusion principle, only a small number of plankton species should be able to coexist on these resources. Large numbers of plankton species coexist within small regions of open sea; some communities that appear to uphold the competitive exclusion principle are MacArthur's warblers and Darwin's finches, though the latter still overlap ecologically strongly, being only affected negatively by competition under extreme conditions. A partial solution to the paradox lies in raising the dimensionality of the system. Spatial heterogeneity, trophic interactions, multiple resource competition, competition-colonization trade-offs, lag may prevent exclusion. However, such systems tend to be analytically intractable. In addition, many can, in theory, support an unlimited number of species. A new paradox is created: Most well-known models that allow for stable coexistence allow for unlimited number of species to coexist, yet, in nature, any community contains just a handful of species.

Recent studies addressing some of the assumptions made for the models predicting competitive exclusion have shown these assumptions need to be reconsidered. For example, a slight modification of the assumption of how growth and body size are related leads to a different conclusion, namely that, for a given ecosystem, a certain range of species may coexist while others become outcompeted. One of the primary ways niche-sharing species can coexist is the competition-colonization trade-off. In other words, species that are better competitors will be specialists, whereas species that are better colonizers are more to be generalists. Host-parasite models are effective ways of using host transfer events. There seem to be two places where the ability to colonize differs in ecologically related species. In feather lice and Clayton provided some verification of this by showing two related genera of lice are nearly equal in their ability to colonize new host pigeons once transferred. Harbison continued this line of thought by investigating whether the two genera differed in their ability to transfer.

This research focused on determining how colonization occurs and why wing lice are better colonizers than body lice. Vertical transfer is the most common occurrence, between parent and offspring, is much-studied and well understood. Horizontal transfer is difficult to measure, but in lice seems to occur via phoresis or the "hitchhiking" of one species on another. Harbison found that body lice are less adept at phoresis and excel competitively, whereas wing lice excel in colonization. An ecological community is the assembly of species, maintained by ecological and evolutionary process; these two processes play an important role in shaping the existing community and will continue in the future. In a local community, the potential members are filtered first by environmental factors such as temperature or availability of required resources and secondly by its ability to co-exist with other resident species. In an approach of understanding how two species fit together in a community or how the whole community fits together, The Origin of Spec
