The News Quiz

The News Quiz is a British topical panel game broadcast on BBC Radio 4. The News Quiz was first broadcast in 1977 with Barry Norman as chairman. Subsequently, it was chaired by Simon Hoggart, Barry Took, again by Simon Hoggart until March 2006. Hoggart was replaced by Sandi Toksvig in September 2006, who in turn was replaced by Miles Jupp in September 2015; the series was created by John Lloyd based on an idea from Nicholas Parsons. Private Eye editor Richard Ingrams and Punch editor Alan Coren acted as team captains, it was adapted for television in 1981 under the title Scoop, running for two series, inspired the television programme Have I Got News for You. In 2012 the BBC piloted. On 28 June 2013, the News Quiz paid tribute to Radio 4 announcer Rory Morrison, who used to read the news cuttings on the programme. During series 97, running from August to October 2018, Jupp was absent due to filming commitments overseas, so show regulars Simon Evans, Susan Calman, Fred MacAulay, Bridget Christie, Jo Brand and Lucy Porter took turns in the host's seat.

Jupp himself chaired the last episodes of the series. In May 2019 it was announced that Jupp would leave the show at the end of the 99th series at the end of the month. Series 100 had several hosts: Nish Kumar, Angela Barnes, Andy Zaltzman, Phil Wang, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Zoe Lyons, Patrick Kielty and Andrew Maxwell; the hosts for 2020 are Angela Barnes and Andy Zaltzman. The programme is recorded in front of an audience on Thursday evenings at the BBC Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House in central London, it is edited and broadcast first on Friday evening at 18:30 repeated on the Saturday lunchtime. The final 28 minute show is shorter than the original recording. In 2012 the BBC began making an extended version for BBC Radio 4 Extra; each week, four panellists appear on the show. They are either comedians or journalists, sometimes politicians. Journalists predominated in the early years; the ostensible purpose of the show is to test contestants' knowledge of the events of the previous week by asking questions which are oblique references to those events.

However this has given way to a general free-for-all where panellists chime in with their own humorous and satirical remarks once the question has been answered. The participants wander off topic; the host ends the discussion of each question with a summary of the events it refers to with a scripted comic punchline, before asking the next question. It is not uncommon for the show to get through only two rounds of the panel before the final section is reached. Before the host announces the symbolic scores, the panellists read out statements from newspapers and other media which they find amusing. In 2020, the show will be hosted in turn by Nish Kumar, Angela Barnes, Andy Zaltzman.

The News Quiz features considerable comedic input from regular BBC newsreaders. The current regulars are: Corrie Corfield Caroline Nicholls Susan Rae Neil Sleat Kathy Clugston Alan Smith Zeb Soanes Diana SpeedAnd former regulars include: Chris Aldridge Carolyn Brown Harriet Cass Peter Donaldson Charlotte Green Rory Morrison Brian PerkinsCorrie Corfield appeared as a panellist once when Sandi Toksvig was unable to attend; as a current BBC newsreader she was bound by the BBC's code of practice for newsreaders, which prevented her from making any opinionated comments on-air Peter Donaldson appeared as a guest, in an episode broadcast in September 1999. Each week, the chair's script is written by three main writers, with material contributed by one or two additional writers. Current regular writers include: Former regular writers include: The opening title music is an arrangement of The Typewriter, by Leroy Anderson played by The James Shepherd Versatile Brass. For the programme the original recording has been increased in speed and pitch by about 33%.

BBC MindGames Magazine featured several BBC-linked puzzles, including The News Quiz, a series of questions about the last month's more unlikely news. Issue 5 included an interview with Sandi Toksvig.

Congruent isoscelizers point

In geometry the congruent isoscelizers point is a special point associated with a plane triangle. It is a triangle center and it is listed as X in Clark Kimberling's Encyclopedia of Triangle Centers; this point was introduced to the study of triangle geometry by Peter Yff in 1989. An isoscelizer of an angle A in a triangle ABC is a line through points P1 and Q1, where P1 lies on AB and Q1 on AC, such that the triangle AP1Q1 is an isosceles triangle. An isoscelizer of angle A is a line perpendicular to the bisector of angle A. Let ABC be any triangle. Let P1Q1, P2Q2, P3Q3 be the isoscelizers of the angles A, B, C such that they all have the same length. For a unique configuration, the three isoscelizers P1Q1, P2Q2, P3Q3 are concurrent; the point of concurrence is the congruent isoscelizers point of triangle ABC. The trilinear coordinates of the congruent isoscelizers point of triangle ABC are = The intouch triangle of the intouch triangle of triangle ABC is perspective to triangle ABC, the congruent isoscelizers point is the perspector.

This fact can be used to locate by geometrical constructions the congruent isoscelizers point of any given triangle ABC. Yff center of congruence Equal parallelians point

Swedish Professional Football Leagues

Swedish Professional Football Leagues is a Swedish interest organisation that represents the 32 elite football clubs in the top two divisions of the Swedish football league system. SEF does not administer the divisions but acts in cooperation with the Swedish Football Association, the member clubs and partners; the goal is to develop Swedish elite football resultwise, economically and administratively. Swedish Professional Football Leagues was founded in 1928 as a counterpart to the Swedish Football Association, with which top division clubs did not have a well-functioning relationship at that time; the organisation was only for clubs playing in the top division Allsvenskan, but in 1939 it was changed so that former top division clubs relegated to Division 2 could remain members. The current name of the organisation was adopted in 1972, the membership at the time included 14 Allsvenskan clubs, 28 clubs playing in Division 2 and an additional five clubs playing in the third division, Division 3.

From 1986 on, it was decided to only give membership to clubs either playing in the top division or the second division. Official website
