Overpowered (song)

"Overpowered" is a song by Irish singer Róisín Murphy from her second studio album of the same name. It was written by Murphy, Paul "Seiji" Dolby and Mike Patto, produced by the former two; the song was released on 9 July 2007. "Overpowered" reached number 149 on the UK Singles Chart on downloads alone, as its physical formats were ineligible to chart. The art director of the single was British graphic designer Scott King and the photographer was Jonathan de Villiers. Murphy is wearing a design by Rolf on the cover. "Overpowered" was met with positive reviews from critics. Jax Spike of About.com described the song as "a perfect ode to melancholic memories that are sung with a seductive baby doll voice with lyrics like'When I think that I am over you/I'm overpowered' right before a zigzagging electro beat comes into play." Heather Phares of AllMusic stated, "With its sleek beats, bubbling synths, nagging chorus,'Overpowered' resembles a state-of-the-art pop single, but the way Murphy sings of science and oxytocin over a heart-fluttering harp is unmistakably her."BBC Music's Sonja D'Cruze referred to the song as "a heady electronic anthem which tells the tale of getting consumed by the lust for an ex-lover, complete with a squelchy bassline and the minimalism of Casio kickdrums which are all secretly lifted by gentle harp and spacey synths.

It's an irresistible match of loved-up disco pop which has a crafty reworking of TIGA's'I Wear My Sunglasses At Night' making it a new classic." Mike Barnes from musicOMH called the song "an unrelenting electro-pop gem that penetrates your skull faster than a high-velocity nail gun." Pitchfork placed "Overpowered" at number 69 on its list of the Top 100 Tracks of 2007, further commenting, "Arty and smartly seductive,'Overpowered' is a sublime reminder of the glory days of New Pop." The music video for "Overpowered" was directed by Jamie Thraves and shows Murphy walking back home from a live gig at night. On her way home, she is seen catching an AEC Routemaster, buying fish and chips at a restaurant and witnessing a police chase. Upon arriving home, she drinks water in the kitchen, removes clothes from the washing machine, brushes her teeth and goes to bed. Throughout the video, Murphy wears a crimson and white-chequered outfit designed by English fashion designer Gareth Pugh. Credits adapted from the liner notes of the CD single.

Cohomology

In mathematics in homology theory and algebraic topology, cohomology is a general term for a sequence of abelian groups associated to a topological space defined from a cochain complex. Cohomology can be viewed as a method of assigning richer algebraic invariants to a space than homology; some versions of cohomology arise by dualizing the construction of homology. In other words, cochains are functions on the group of chains in homology theory. From its beginning in topology, this idea became a dominant method in the mathematics of the second half of the twentieth century. From the initial idea of homology as a method of constructing algebraic invariants of topological spaces, the range of applications of homology and cohomology theories has spread throughout geometry and algebra; the terminology tends to hide the fact that cohomology, a contravariant theory, is more natural than homology in many applications. At a basic level, this has to do with functions and pullbacks in geometric situations: given spaces X and Y, some kind of function F on Y, for any mapping f: X → Y, composition with f gives rise to a function F ∘ f on X.

The most important cohomology theories have a product, the cup product, which gives them a ring structure. Because of this feature, cohomology is a stronger invariant than homology. Singular cohomology is a powerful invariant in topology, associating a graded-commutative ring to any topological space; every continuous map f: X → Y determines a homomorphism from the cohomology ring of Y to that of X. Unlike more subtle invariants such as homotopy groups, the cohomology ring tends to be computable in practice for spaces of interest. For a topological space X, the definition of singular cohomology starts with the singular chain complex: ⋯ → C i + 1 → ∂ i + 1 C i → ∂ i C i − 1 → ⋯ By definition, the singular homology of X is the homology of this chain complex. In more detail, Ci is the free abelian group on the set of continuous maps from the standard i-simplex to X, ∂i is the ith boundary homomorphism; the groups Ci are zero for i negative. Now fix an abelian group A, replace each group Ci by its dual group C i ∗:= H o m, ∂ i by its dual homomorphism d i − 1: C i − 1 ∗ → C i ∗.

This has the effect of "reversing all the arrows" of the original complex, leaving a cochain complex ⋯ ← C i + 1 ∗ ← d i C i ∗ ← d i − 1 C i − 1 ∗ ← ⋯ For an integer i, the ith cohomology group of X with coefficients in A is defined to be ker/im and denoted by Hi. The group Hi is zero for i negative; the elements of C i ∗ are called singular i-cochains with coefficients in A. Elements of ker and im are called cocycles and coboundaries while elements of ker/im = Hi are called cohomology classes. In what follows, the coefficient group A is sometimes not written, it is common to take A to be a commutative ring R. A standard choice is the ring Z of integers; some of the formal properties of cohomology are only minor variants of the properties of homology: A continuous map f: X → Y determines a pushforward homomorphism f ∗: H i → H i on homology and a pullback homomorphism f ∗: H i → H i on cohomology. This makes cohomology into a contravariant functor from topological spaces to abelian groups. Two homotopic maps from X to Y induce the same homomorphism on cohomology.

The Mayer–Vietoris sequence is an important computational tool in cohomology, as in homology. Note that the boundary homomorphism increases degree in cohomology; that is, if a space X is the union of open sub

Live at the Bicentennial

Gentle Giant Live at the Bicentennial 1776-1976 is a live album by British progressive rock band Gentle Giant recorded in Hempstead, New York on 3 July 1976. The CD was released by Alucard Music in 2014. "On the eve of the Bicentennial celebrations in the USA in 1976, Gentle Giant played at the Calderone Theater in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. The concert played that evening was recorded live for a radio station nearby, Gentle Giant was touring North America and Europe promoting its new album In'terview; when Gentle Giant heard this recording for the first time only it was decided to release the music for the fans who remembered this era, for newer fans who have discovered the band. The recording was not supposed to be a'live album', so the levels and sound quality are dubious. However, the band was quite intrigued to hear songs like "Give It Back" and "Timing" played live, as they were featured in its repertoire. There are no overdubs or other recording enhancements on this live recording, it features Gentle Giant unedited and unrepentant.

This 2-CD set finishes up with "Free Hand", where the recording of the performance stopped. There were three encores that evening which included "Peel the Paint", "I Lost My Head" and a rendition of Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight Hour"; the third and final encore, played after midnight, featured the band singing and playing "Happy Birthday" to the USA." This concert has been released as a bootleg, but incomplete and with lower quality, as In'terview in Concert. All tracks are written by Kerry Minnear, Derek Shulman, Ray Shulman.

Smooth East Midlands

Smooth East Midlands is an Independent Local Radio station for the East Midlands, which replaced Saga 106.6 FM at 6am on Monday 26 March 2007. It is operated by Global as part of the Smooth network of stations; as well as being carried on FM in the East Midlands, the station could be found on DAB digital radio and online. It was broadcast on the NOW Derbyshire DAB Multiplex; the station came into existence following GMG Radio's purchase of the Saga Radio Group in December 2006, the granting of permission from the regulator Ofcom to change the format of its Smooth FM stations. The decision was made to change both Saga stations to Smooth Radio. Saga 106.6 FM closed at 6pm on Friday 23 March 2007, was followed by a preview weekend for the new Smooth Radio. Smooth East Midlands played middle-of-the-road, adult contemporary music, aimed at listeners aged 45 and over, it had few similarities to its predecessor. Though many of the presenters who worked on Saga 106.6 FM hosted shows on 106.6 Smooth Radio, many departed and by the time of its closure none of the specialist shows from the Saga days had survived.

Moreover, Smooth's initial slogan Your Life, Your music, used on Saga stations, was modified to Love Life, Love Music, which continues to be used by the station's successor. The station networked many of its programmes since 2007, from 28 June 2010 Tony Lyman was the only remaining original presenter from the Saga line up. Local programming originated from studios in Nottinghamshire. Networked programming was syndicated from Smooth North West studios at Manchester. In 2010 GMG announced that it would be merging its five Smooth stations in England to create a nationwide Smooth Radio service based in Manchester; the new station was launched on 4 October 2010 and could be heard both on DAB and on the locally on the FM frequencies. Smooth Radio's output was relocated to new owner Global's Leicester Square headquarters from 1 October 2013, a move that coincided with a major overhaul of its schedule, the closure of Smooth 70s after 21 months on air. Global reached an agreement to sell Smooth East Midlands and seven others to Communicorp, as part of a plan to allay competition fears following Global's purchase of GMG Radio.

On 4 February 2014, the Radio Today website reported that Ofcom had given Global permission to remove Smooth from the Digital One platform, to replace it with a service playing music from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Under this agreement, Smooth would continue to broadcast on its regional frequencies, but would be required to provide seven hours of local output per day. On 2 March 2014 a new slogan Your Relaxing Music Mix was introduced. In September 2019, following OFCOM's decision to relax local content obligations from commercial radio, Smooth's local Drivetime and weekend shows were replaced by network programming from London. Local news bulletins, traffic updates and advertising were retained, alongside the station's East Midlands breakfast show. Connect Radio 97.2, 106.8 & 107.4 is to close and merge with Smooth East Midlands from 1 October 2019. Local programming is produced and broadcast from Global's Nottingham studios from 6-10am on weekdays. All networked programming originates from Global's London headquarters, including The Smooth Drive Home with Angie Greaves.

Global's Newsroom broadcasts hourly regional news bulletins from 6am-7pm on weekdays and 6am-12pm at weekends. The bulletins are produced for Communicorp by Global's Nottingham newsroom. National news updates air hourly from Global's London headquarters at all other times. Official website

ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal

The ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal is a tribunal in the Australian Capital Territory. It provides a forum for the determination of a wide range of civil disputes, requests for review of administrative decisions, professional and occupational disciplinary matters; the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal was established via the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2008, which took effect on 2 February 2009. The tribunal took over the work of several existing tribunals and boards, including the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, Small Claims Court, Discrimination Tribunal and Management of Property Tribunal, Mental Health Tribunal, Residential Tenancies Tribunal, Liquor Licensing Board, Health Professions Tribunal, Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal, ACT Court of Appeal Case Records; the records of these former tribunals and boards are held by the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
