WLFI-TV

WLFI-TV, virtual channel 18, is a CBS-affiliated television station licensed to Lafayette, United States. The station is owned by Allen Media Broadcasting, a subsidiary of Los Angeles-based Entertainment Studios. WLFI-TV's studios are located on Yeager Road in West Lafayette, its transmitter is located on County Road 700 in rural northwestern Clinton County. On cable, WLFI-TV is available on Comcast Xfinity channel 8 and Metronet channel 18 in standard definition and on Xfinity digital channel 1018 and Metronet channel 818 in high definition; the station first signed on the air at 6:00 p.m. on June 15, 1953 as WFAM-TV, broadcasting on UHF channel 59. It was founded by O. E. Richardson, owner of radio station WASK; the station operated as a primary CBS and DuMont affiliate. During the late 1950s, the station was briefly affiliated with the NTA Film Network. WFAM-TV's transmitter had broadcast at low power, making it unreceivable in parts of west-central Indiana outside of the immediate Lafayette area.

Out of its original 20-person staff, only one person had any experience in television. In 1957, the station was sold to WASK to assistant general manager Henry Rosenthal, who filed with the Federal Communications Commission to move WFAM-TV to channel 18, but the station instead went dark in May 1959. Rosenthal sold the station to Sarkes Tarzian, a radio manufacturer based in Bloomington, which owned primary NBC/secondary ABC and DuMont affiliate WTTV in Indianapolis and ABC affiliate WPTA in Fort Wayne, it was Tarzian who finished the relocation to channel 18, returning WFAM-TV to the air on that channel on November 15 of that year. The station changed its call letters to WLFI-TV in 1967. In 1979, the station was purchased by Block Communications. In 2000, LIN TV Corporation acquired WLFI from Block in exchange for a 67% ownership interest in ABC affiliate WAND in Decatur, Illinois. WLFI's broadcasts became digital-only, effective June 12, 2009. On March 21, 2014, Media General announced that it would merge with LIN Media in a $1.6 billion deal.

The merger was completed on December 19. Nexstar Broadcasting Group announced on January 27, 2016 that it would merge with Media General in a $4.6 billion acquisition. WLFI was the Lafayette area's only commercial network television broadcaster from its 1953 start until the 2016 launch of WPBI-LD, a Fox and NBC affiliate. Cable providers have long supplemented the area with stations from Indianapolis. Comcast Xfinity dropped the Indianapolis stations from its lineup on March 7, 2018, but resumed carriage of NBC affiliate WTHR and ABC affiliate WRTV two days later; the station's digital signal is multiplexed: WLFI carried TheCoolTV on digital subchannel 18.2 from 2011 to 2013, when LIN Media terminated its affiliation agreement with the music video network. The live feed of "Storm Team 18 Live Doppler Radar" moved from digital subchannel 18.3 to 18.2 in the fall of 2013. Sony Pictures Television's GetTV network, which features classic movies, replaced the weather radar channel on WLFI-DT2 in early 2015.

In Fall 2015, WLFI-DT3 was launched to serve as an Ion Television affiliate. The CW Plus began to be broadcast over WLFI-DT2 in 720p HD in August 2017, moving GetTV to a new DT4 subchannel and leading to the CBS feed on their main channel being downscaled into 720p for the time being. WLFI-DT2 is being identified on-air as "Lafayette's CW18". WLFI-TV carries the entire CBS network schedule. Syndicated programs broadcast by WLFI-TV include Dr. Phil, Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. WLFI-TV presently broadcasts 22½ hours of locally produced newscasts each week. After cable systems began piping in Indianapolis stations in the 1970s, the station's newscasts have performed well in the ratings. In September 2012, WLFI became the third television station in Central Indiana to begin broadcasting its local newscasts in high definition.

However, Edna is so taken with Charlie's manners that by the time the police arrive to investigate the crime, she lies to them, stating that Charlie is her husband; the police believe her. She gives Charlie a dollar and sends him on his way.

However, Charlie soon encounters another policeman. Another chase begins. Charles Chaplin as Charlie, Convict 999 Edna Purviance as Daughter of the House Wesley Ruggles as Jailbird and Thief James T.

They will see a touch of heart interest just at the end of the subject, they will see that Charlie's stock pantomime includes pathos as well as fooling, but of course, the picture is clever horseplay, beginning with Charlie's exit from prison, ending with his flight from a policeman."

Grammostola pulchra

Grammostola pulchra is a species of tarantula, native to Brazil. It is known for its solid black body. Known as the Brazilian black, mature specimens are entirely black. Although like most new world tarantulas it possesses urticating hairs, if provoked, they would much rather flee than attack, their venom is not as irritating as many other species of tarantulas. The Brazilian black is a slow grower, taking up to eight years to reach maturity, reaching up to 18 cm; as with all tarantulas, females of this species will always outlive males by many years. As a juvenile in captivity, this species tends to burrow, they thrive on mealworms, crickets and other small insects. The species is desirable in the pet trade because of the females' long lifespan and reputation for being docile and gentle in temperament, as well as for its appealing dark coloration; these traits make them rather expensive. It is said to have a reduced tendency to kick urticating hairs off when handled, which adds to its desirability as a pet.

Many times, they do not spread urticating hairs around their homes, as observed in other tarantula species. Because of a ban on the export of wild caught specimens and its slow growth, mature females are expensive. Adult female Grammostola pulchra molting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MOlvsjXlzo
