WFAA, virtual and VHF digital channel 8, is an ABC-affiliated television station licensed to Dallas, United States and serving the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex. The station is owned by Tegna Inc. WFAA maintains business offices and secondary studio facilities at the WFAA Communications Center Studios on Young Street in downtown Dallas, operates a primary studio facility, used for the production of WFAA's newscasts and houses certain other business operations handled by the station, in the Victory Park neighborhood in central Dallas; the station's transmitter is located south of Belt Line Road in Cedar Hill. WFAA is the largest ABC-affiliated station by market size, not owned and operated by the network through its ABC Owned Television Stations subsidiary, the largest affiliate of any of the "Big Four" television networks, not owned by that respective network, it is one of only two television stations in the Dallas–Fort Worth market, not owned by the corporate parent of its affiliated network.
The initial application for the television station was filed on October 23, 1944, when local businessman Karl Hoblitzelle, owner of movie theater chain Interstate Circuit Theatres, applied with the Federal Communications Commission to obtain a construction permit and license to operate a television station on VHF channel 8. Hoblitzelle planned to operate the station out of the Republic Bank building in downtown Dallas, conducted a closed-circuit television broadcast of the opening of one of his properties, the Wilshire Theatre. Texas oil magnate Tom Potter filed a separate application for the Channel 8 license and was awarded the permit over Hoblitzelle; the station first signed on the air at 8 p.m. on September 17, 1949 as KBTV, with a fifteen-minute ceremony inaugurating the launch of Channel 8 as its first broadcast. Potter founded and operated the station through the Lacy-Potter TV Broadcasting Company, which he controlled, it was the third television station to sign on in Texas, the second station in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, the first to be licensed to Dallas.
The station operated from studio facilities located at Harry Hines Boulevard and Wolf Street, north of downtown Dallas. When the station commenced its full schedule on September 18, KBTV had broadcast for only four hours of programming per day, it operated as a primary affiliate of the DuMont Television Network and a secondary affiliate of the short-lived Paramount Television Network. KBTV, NBC affiliate WBAP-TV and CBS affiliate KRLD-TV —the latter of, licensed to Dallas and signed on three months on December 3—would be the only television stations in the Dallas–Fort Worth area to sign on for the next six years as the FCC had instituted a freeze on new applications for television station licenses in November 1948, a moratorium that would last for four years. Lacy-Potter Television Broadcasting lost $128,020 in net revenue during its four-month stewardship of KBTV, leading Tom Potter to make the decision to put the station up for sale; the A. H. Belo Corporation, owner of The Dallas Morning News, had attempted to launch a new television station in Dallas two years earlier, when it applied for a construction permit to build transmitter and broadcasting facilities for a proposed station that would have transmitted on VHF channel 12.
The FCC rejected Belo's application and, following the issuance of the Sixth Report and Order in 1952 chose to reassign the Channel 12 allocation to Waco. Complicating matters, the agency's moratorium on new license applications, which the FCC instituted to sort out the backlog of prospective applicants that filed to build such operations, left Belo with the sole recourse of acquiring a television station, on the air if it wanted to own one in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. In January 1950, Belo purchased KBTV from Lacy-Potter for $575,000; the station was the first television property to be owned by the Dallas-based company, served as the flagship station of its broadcasting division until Belo merged with the Gannett Company in 2013. Four days on March 21, Belo changed the station's call letters to WFAA-TV to match those of its new radio partner WFAA; the WFAA calls stood for "Working For All Alike," although the radio station billed itself as the "World's Finest Air Attraction" (the KBTV call letters were used from 1953 to 1984 by what i
Mansfield is a suburban city in the U. S. state of Texas, is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area. The city is located in Tarrant county, with small parts in Ellis and Johnson counties, its location is equidistant to Dallas and Fort Worth, is adjacent to Arlington. As of the 2010 census, the population was 56,368, up from 28,031 in 2000; the estimated population in 2018 was 69,340. CNN/Money Magazine ranked Mansfield at # 17 in 2014 in its annual. Mansfield has been in that list in the recent past: in 2007, 2009, 2012, ranking it 83rd, 24th, 30th, respectively, it is the 15th most affluent location in all of Texas. The first wave of European settlers arrived in the rolling Cross Timbers country of north central Texas in the 1840s. Of Scotch-Irish origins, these pioneer farmers came for the most part from southern states, following the frontier as it shifted west of the Mississippi, they entered an area. The Comanche posed a serious threat to the settlers, in 1849, the U. S. Army established Fort Worth to protect the farms along the sparsely populated frontier.
The area southeast of the fort was well protected and fairly well settled by the early 1850s. In one well-documented case, eight related families migrated to the area in 1853 from Illinois. Three of the four Gibson brothers in this group established homesteads about 4 miles northwest of present-day Mansfield; this settlement, which became known as the Gibson Community, included a school and a church building by 1860. When R. S. Man and Julian Feild arrived around 1856 and built a grist mill at the crossroads, to become the center of Mansfield, the beginnings of the community existed in the oak groves bordering Walnut Creek; the Walnut Creek Congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church had organized itself in 1854. Members met in each other's homes, so it is suspected that there was a cluster of houses in the area. In 1856, Julian Feild purchased 540 acres in the Mansfield area. Man and Feild completed their three-story brick grist mill sometime between 1856 and 1859; the mill, which produced flour and meal, was the first built in North Texas to utilize steam power and enjoyed patronage as far south as San Antonio and as far north as Oklahoma.
The location of the mill in southeastern Tarrant County reflects the advanced state of wheat cultivation in the area and the ready availability of wood to feed the mill's steam boilers. Feild opened a general merchandise store at the same time as the mill, located across Broad Street, he built a log house for his family, which served as an inn for travelers and customers. By 1860, the nucleus of the future city existed; the first post office was established that year, with Julian Feild as postmaster. During the American Civil War, the Man and Feild Mill supplied meal and flour to the Confederate States Army, hauling it to Shreveport and Jefferson City, Missouri; as was common practice, the owners tithed ten percent of the mill's production to the Confederacy. The small community around the mill was unique in Tarrant County in that it prospered throughout the Civil War. "Feild's Freighters", assembled in ox-drawn wagon trains, went as far as Fort Sill, where a part of the Indian Wars raged in the southern plains in the late 1860s and 1870s.
The prospering community which had grown up around the Man and Feild mill took on the name of "Mansfeild", a combination of the names of the founders. Repeated misspellings over the years resulted in the acceptance of the conventional spelling of "Mansfield." The town incorporated in 1909. In 1956, a federal court ordered the Mansfield Independent School District to desegregate. Protests by 300 whites in front of Mansfield High School, to prevent three black students from enrolling, touched off one of the longest-running desegregation battles of the Civil Rights Movement. Mansfield's school desegregated in 1965 as it faced a lack of federal funds. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 36.4 square miles, of which 36.4 square miles is land and 0.04 square miles, or 0.12%, is water. In the 2016 EST, Mansfield will have a population of 67,628, making it the largest city in the United States named Mansfield; the median age will be 35.2. The racial and ethnic composition of the population will be 68.80% White 60.45% non-Hispanic white, 17.81% black or African American, 0.52% Native American, 4.32% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 5.06% some other race, 3.40% from two or more races and 15.66% Hispanic or Latino.

John Calvin Batchelor is an American author and host of The John Batchelor Show. Based at AM 770 WABC radio in New York for five years from early 2001 to September 2006, the show was syndicated nationally on the ABC radio network. On October 7, 2007, Batchelor returned to radio on WABC, to other large market stations on a weekly basis; as of November 30, 2009, Batchelor was once again hosting a nightly show on WABC, from 9 p.m to 1 a.m Eastern Time and heard in many major markets across the country, now on the Westwood One network. The program for a time was heard seven nights a week. More it has aired Monday through Friday on WABC and many Westwood One network affiliates. Batchelor describes the show as a "news magazine" since he does not take phone calls from listeners but does a series of interviews with guests and reporters. Batchelor was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania to an Assyrian mother from Iran and an American father, he was raised in Lower Merion Township of Montgomery County, in Pennsylvania's 13th congressional district.
His mother and father both served in the United States Army during World War II. Batchelor is the eldest of five brothers, he is a 1970 graduate of Princeton University and a graduate of Union Theological Seminary in New York. John Batchelor co-hosted Batchelor and Alexander with writer Paul Alexander on WABC in New York for over two years, they focused on international issues with special attention to Middle East-based terrorism. Batchelor described their approach: "Our model is the BBC World Service, with music and live interviews, but without English accents." Alexander quipped: "We're not NPR. Well, we could be NPR on drugs."Three days before the September 11 attacks, they presented a four-hour WABC show on the USS Cole bombing, interviewing several guests. Alexander left the show in December 2003 to pursue work as a biographer; the John Batchelor Show began its national syndication in April 2003. The program airs 20 hours a week on 200 stations, its focus is geopolitics, war, hard sciences, private space, etc.
It carried nightly the "Loftus Report" featuring the intelligence commentator John Loftus on current, war-related, open-source intelligence. Aaron Klein, Jerusalem bureau chief for WorldNetDaily, was a regular and served as a co-host. Other regular contributors included Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations; the program daily featured reports from journalists who filed with the world's most respected press outlets, the show was reliably a few days ahead of the news cycle. When John Batchelor took a break for several evenings, the show was hosted by Jed Babbin, editor of Human Events in Washington, D. C.. In 2012, Simon Constable of Dow Jones. C. became primary fill-ins. Batchelor's show featured multiple guests, shows were preceded by and interspersed with news clips and music; the show focussed on myriad topics, including politics, the war on terror, nuclear proliferation, the UN, African civil wars, American history, space exploration and Hollywood scandals.
The Jerusalem Post has an audio archive of Batchelor and Alexander segments from 2002 and 2003 that deal with Israel and the Middle East. To report on breaking news and his executive producer have travelled domestically to hotspots, to Azerbaijan, Israel, Kazakhstan, France and Taiwan, they landed in Taipei to broadcast for the week leading up to the 2004 elections when, on the last day of electioneering, both the president and the vice-president were shot and wounded by an unknown assailant. On Monday, August 25, 2006, Batchelor announced on air that his ABC show would be canceled, beginning with the show scheduled for the next Monday, September 1, he next substituted as host for Matt Drudge on July 22, 2007. The show was nearly identical in format to his ABC show, including contributions from Klein and Loftus, among many other guests, he returned to fill in for Drudge on September 2, 2007. Batchelor returned on WABC as the host of a weekly version of the previous show on October 7, 2007, from 7–10 PM Eastern Time.
He hosted a second show as a guest host on KFI in Los Angeles, filling the vacancy caused by the departure of Matt Drudge, in the next three hours from 7–10 PM Pacific time. His first program featured an interview with Nick Grace of ClandestineRadio.com that broke the name of al Qaeda's extranet and the news that the extranet's security tightened following a press leak in September 2007. In 2009, Batchelor exp
North Texas is a term used by residents of Dallas, Fort Worth, surrounding areas to describe much of the northern portion of the U. S. state of Texas. Residents of the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex consider North Texas to include the area south of Oklahoma, east of Abilene, west of Paris, north of Waco. A more precise term for this region would be the northern part of the central portion of Texas, it does not include the Panhandle of Texas, which expands further north than the region described, nor does it include most of the region near the northern border of Texas. Today North Texas is centered upon the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex, the largest metropolitan area in Texas. People in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas sometimes use the terms "Metroplex", "DFW", "North Texas" interchangeably. However, North Texas refers to a much larger area that includes many rural counties along the northern border. During the early years of the Civil War, there were many Unionists in the rural counties, as there were few slaveholders.
Many of the largest cities in North Texas outside Dallas and Fort Worth still follow a rural Southern way of life in dialect, mannerisms and cuisine. The North Texas climate is subtropical with hot summers, it is continental, characterized by a wide annual temperature range. Average annual precipitation varies ranging from less than 28 to more than 48 inches. Severe storms are frequent in the spring, as the area lies in the southern section of "tornado alley". South is the prevailing wind direction, southerly winds are high and persist for several days. Strong northerly winds occur during the passage of cold fronts. Dusty conditions are infrequent, occurring with westerly winds. Dust storm frequency and intensity depend on soil conditions in eastern New Mexico, west Texas, the Texas Panhandle. Winters are mild, but northers occur about three times each month, are accompanied by sudden drops in temperature. In Dallas, a record-setting 12.8 inches of snow fell in February 2011. Periods of extreme cold that occur are short-lived, so that in January mild weather occurs frequently.
The highest temperatures of summer are associated with fair skies, westerly winds and low humidities. Characteristically, hot spells in summer are broken into three- to five-day periods by thunderstorm activity. There are only a few nights each summer when the low temperature exceeds 80 °F. Summer daytime temperatures exceed 100 °F. Air conditioners are recommended for maximum comfort indoors and while traveling via automobile. Throughout the year, rainfall occurs more during the night. Periods of rainy weather last for only a day or two, are followed by several days with fair skies. A large part of the annual precipitation results from thunderstorm activity, with occasional heavy rainfall over brief periods of time. Thunderstorms are most frequent in the spring. Hail falls on about two or three days a year, ordinarily with only scattered damage. Windstorms occurring during thunderstorm activity are sometimes destructive. Snowfall is uncommon; the average length of the warm season is about 249 days.
The average last occurrence of 32 °F or below is mid March and the average first occurrence of 32 °F or below is in late November. Although the terms "Northeastern Texas" or "North Texas" are not official state designations, the Texas State Data Center and Office of the State Demographer lists the following counties as belonging to the North Central Texas Council of Governments: The Texas State Demographer lists the following regional county groupings, some or all of which are included in the informal meaning of the terms "North Texas" or "North Central Texas." Additionally, some other Texas counties contiguous with those named above are sometimes included in the general meaning of "North Texas." In the North Texas region there is one combined statistical area, three metropolitan areas, six micropolitan areas. Metropolitan Statistical Areas Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington Sherman-Denison Micropolitan Statistical Areas Athens Corsicana Durant, OK Gainesville Granbury Mineral Wells Sulphur Springs Metropolitan Statistical Areas Wichita Falls Micropolitan Statistical Areas Vernon Micropolitan Statistical Areas Stephenville Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex Wichita Falls Metropolitan Area Sherman–Denison Metropolitan Area Dallas Love Field Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Wichita Falls Municipal Airport Dallas Area Rapid Transit Denton County Transportation Authority Falls Ride Trinity Metro TAPS The North Texas region has teams from the four major professional sports leagues.
Major professional sports first came to the area in 1960, when the Dallas Cowboys began competing in the National Football League and the Dallas Texans began competing in the American Football League.. In 1972, Major League Baseball's Washington Senators moved to Arlington to become the Texas Rangers, named after the statewide law enforcement agency; the National Basketball Association expanded into North Texas in 1980 when the Dallas Mavericks were added to the league. The fourth sport was added in 19

Levin authored the 2005 book Men In Black: How The Supreme Court Is Destroying America, in which he advanced his thesis that activist judges on the Supreme Court have "legislated from the bench". Commentary magazine's Dan Seligman wrote that Levin asks readers "to identify with'originalists' who look to the text of the Constitution and the intent of its framers, to reject the'activists' who construe the Constitution broadly and are more concerned with getting to their own'desired outcomes'". Slate magazine's Dahlia Lithwick wrote that "no serious scholar of the court or the Constitution, on the ideological left or right, is going to waste their time engaging Levin's arguments once they've read this book". Rescuing Sprite: A Dog Lover's Story of Joy and Anguish is a non-fiction work written by Levin in 2007 about his experience of rescuing a dog named Sprite from a local animal shelter. Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto was released in 2009, became a #1 New York Times best seller for eleven of twelve weeks, as well as No. 1 on Nielsen's BookScan and No. 2 on Amazon.com's list of bestselling books of 2009.
The book includes discussion of a variety of issues that, according to Levin, need to be addressed in the United States. In Liberty and Tyranny Levin repudiates the use of the term "progressive" to describe "modern Liberals" and instea
In radio communication, an omnidirectional antenna is a class of antenna which radiates equal radio power in all directions perpendicular to an axis, with power varying with angle to the axis, declining to zero on the axis. When graphed in three dimensions this radiation pattern is described as doughnut-shaped. Note that this is different from an isotropic antenna, which radiates equal power in all directions, having a spherical radiation pattern. Omnidirectional antennas oriented vertically are used for nondirectional antennas on the surface of the Earth because they radiate in all horizontal directions, while the power radiated drops off with elevation angle so little radio energy is aimed into the sky or down toward the earth and wasted. Omnidirectional antennas are used for radio broadcasting antennas, in mobile devices that use radio such as cell phones, FM radios, walkie-talkies, wireless computer networks, cordless phones, GPS, as well as for base stations that communicate with mobile radios, such as police and taxi dispatchers and aircraft communications.
Common types of low-gain omnidirectional antennas are the whip antenna, "Rubber Ducky" antenna, ground plane antenna, vertically oriented dipole antenna, discone antenna, mast radiator, horizontal loop antenna and the halo antenna. Higher-gain omnidirectional antennas can be built. "Higher gain" in this case means that the antenna radiates less energy at higher and lower elevation angles and more in the horizontal directions. High-gain omnidirectional antennas are realized using collinear dipole arrays; these consist of multiple half-wave dipoles mounted collinearly. The coaxial collinear antenna uses transposed coaxial sections to produce in-phase half-wavelength radiators. A Franklin Array uses short U-shaped half-wavelength sections whose radiation cancels in the far-field to bring each half-wavelength dipole section into equal phase. Another type is the Omnidirectional Microstrip Antenna. Omnidirectional radiation patterns are produced by the simplest practical antennas and dipole antennas, consisting of one or two straight rod conductors on a common axis.
Antenna gain is defined as antenna efficiency multiplied by antenna directivity, expressed mathematically as: G = e D. A useful relationship between omnidirectional radiation pattern directivity in decibels and half-power beamwidth based on the assumption of a sin / b θ pattern shape is: D ≈ 10 log 10 dB.
