This TV

This TV is an American free-to-air television network, owned by ThisTV, LLC, a division of the MGM Domestic Television Distribution subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The network maintains a large programming emphasis on films, but airs other limited general entertainment content in the form of classic television series and children's programming; the network – which broadcasts 24 hours a day in 480i standard definition – is available in many media markets via broadcast television stations on their digital subchannels, on select cable providers through carriage of a local affiliate. This TV's programming and business operations are headquartered at 303 East Wacker Drive in Chicago. Film and television studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Chicago, Illinois-based television station owner Weigel Broadcasting announced the formation of This TV on July 28, 2008, with a launch planned for that autumn; the "This TV" name was chosen as a branding and marketing avenue for the network and its stations, with slogans such as "This is the Place for Movies", "It Doesn't Get Any Better than This", "This is What You're Watching", "Stay Here for This" and "This is the Channel!" proposed for use in on-air promotions.

This TV formally launched at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time on November 1, 2008, with the 1986 Spike Lee film She's Gotta Have It as the network's first program. However, some initial affiliates may have "soft launched" the network one day earlier – on October 31, 2008 – to carry some Halloween-themed programming, provided by the network. At launch, in addition to featuring content sourced from the MGM film and television library, Cookie Jar Entertainment provided children's programming for This TV's daily morning schedule. Under Weigel Broadcasting part-ownership, the network's operations were overseen by Neal Sabin, who in his role as Weigel's executive vice president oversaw the national launch of MeTV, a classic television network similar in format to This TV though with an exclusive focus on comedic and dramatic series. Jim Marketti, president/CEO of Marketti Creative Group, was hired in August 2008 as This TV's creative director, focusing on the network's marketing and promotion. On May 13, 2013, Weigel Broadcasting announced that it would be leaving the This TV partnership in order to focus on Movies!, a similar film-oriented multicast network that Weigel launched in partnership with Fox Television Stations in January 2013.

Tribune Broadcasting, owners of the classic television multicast network Antenna TV, took over daily operations of This TV on November 1, 2013. On May 2, 2017, Sinclair Broadcast Group announced its KidsClick children's programming block that would air on This TV starting on July 1, 2017. KidsClick left This TV on July 1, 2018; this TV's program schedule relies on the library of films and television programming owned by MGM and subsidiary United Artists. No produced programming appears on the network, although the use of on-air presenters had once been considered for This TV's movie broadcasts. However, the network does display an on-screen logo bug during its programs, affiliates are inclined to include regional descriptors reflecting the station's primary broadcast area or the station's own logo underneath the network bug; the network did not utilize a split-screen credit sequence to promote upcoming programs during the closing credits until Tribune took over operations. Films broadcast on the network do feature commercial interruption, breaks during its programming consist of direct-response advertisements for products featured in infomercials and during This TV's children's programming, public service announcements.

The network's first continuity announcer was Milwaukee radio personality and Miller Park PA system announcer Robb Edwards, replaced in the Weigel era by Jim Cummings. This TV's daily schedule consists of feature films, which air on Monday through Saturdays from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. and Sundays from 6:00 to 10:00 a.m. 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. and 2:00 to 4:00 a.m. Eastern Time; the film roster does not concentrate on films from any specific era, meaning any film from the Depression era to contemporary times, films made for either television, home video/DVD or theatrical release can be featured. The network's film telecasts by far, are "television" cuts meant for broadcast syndication which feature content edits, dubbing or muting of profanities and some time edits by removing superfluous plotting or adult scenes toned down to fit within a two-hour timeslot wi

Sixteenth note

In music, a sixteenth note or semiquaver is a note played for half the duration of an eighth note, hence the names. It is the equivalent of the semifusa in mensural notation, first found in 15th-century notation. Sixteenth notes are notated with an oval, filled-in note head and a straight note stem with two flags. A single sixteenth note is always stemmed with flags, while two or more are beamed in groups. A corresponding symbol is the sixteenth rest; as with all notes with stems, sixteenth notes are drawn with stems to the right of the notehead, facing up, when they are below the middle line of the musical staff. When they are on the middle line or above it, they are drawn with stems on the left of the note head, facing down. Flags are always on the right side of the stem, curve to the right. On stems facing up, the flags start at the curve down; when multiple sixteenth notes or eighth notes are next to each other, the flags may be connected with a beam, like the notes in Figure 2. Note the similarities in notating sixteenth notes and eighth notes.

Similar rules apply to smaller divisions such as sixty-fourth notes. In Unicode, U+266C is a pair of beamed semiquavers; the note derives from the semifusa in mensural notation. However, semifusa designates the modern sixty-fourth note in Spanish and Portuguese. List of musical symbols Gerou, Tom. Essential Dictionary of Music Notation. Alfred.

Penelope (Enda Walsh play)

Penelope is a 2010 tragicomedy play written by Irish playwright Enda Walsh. The play concerns the attempts of four men seeking to win over Penelope in the absence of her warrior husband, away for the previous twenty years fighting the Trojan wars; the play opens with the four men, Burns and Quinn, in an empty swimming pool, going about their daily lives with only Burns at odds with his environment. There is a blood stain on the wall which we learn was caused by the suicide of a fifth man, only the day before. Burns attempts to scrub away the blood to no avail. A barbecue stands towards the rear of the pool, it has never been lit and is the source of great curiosity and some fear by the men. In a shared dream they see it lighting heralding their death at the hands of Odysseus. Penelope, separated from the men, stands on a platform unseen from the pool. A television screen relays the successive addresses by the men for her perusal in a contemporaneous nod to reality television formats; each man hopes to win her affections through their monologues.

But as the day wears on signs and premonitions of Odysseus’ return grow more ominous and they formulate a plan to work together in order that one of them may succeed in winning Penelope, thus saving the others from Odysseus’ revenge. In a final sequence Quinn performs a quick-change cabaret routine to the music of ‘Spanish Flea’ and ‘A Taste of Honey’ by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass as the others aid his performance. Variously Quinn costumes himself as male and female lovers of exceptional note —such as Napoleon and Josephine and Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara— it is when he strips down to his toga, as Eros the Greek God of Love, that he is stabbed by Burns. Dunne and Fitz take part in the Quinn is killed. Burns makes a final address to Penelope in which he argues for their collective redemption through love and human affection. Burns concludes his speech with the words “love is saved” and at this moment "the barbecue goes up in flames; as their dream predicted, it begins from its legs and spreads to the rest of the frame and grill" thus signalling the deaths of the men as above them Penelope withdraws from the stage "and into her new future".
