USATODAY.com - The Christmas classic that almost wasn't: "When CBS bigwigs saw a rough cut of A Charlie Brown Christmas in November 1965, they hated it.

'They said it was slow,' executive producer Lee Mendelson remembers with a laugh. There were concerns that the show was almost defiantly different: There was no laugh track, real children provided the voices, and there was a swinging score by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi."

Rhapsody in Blue - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rhapsody in Blue - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Rhapsody in Blue is a musical composition by George Gershwin for solo piano and orchestra or band written in 1924 which combines elements of classical music with jazz-influenced effects. The piece received its premi�re in a concert entitled An Experiment in Modern Music, which was held on 12 February 1924 in Aeolian Hall, New York, by Paul Whiteman and his band with Gershwin playing the piano. It has since become one of the most popular American concert works.

As the most famous classical composition by Gershwin, it established his reputation as a serious composer"

THE ENTERTANIER by Scott Joplin

Now the curtain is going up,
The entertainer is taking a bow,
Does his dance step and sings his song,
Even gets all the audience to sing along,
Yes, he knows just what he must do,
Knows how to bring down the house when he’s through,
Snappy patter and jokes, he knows what pleases the folks,
The entertainer, the star of the show.


It was in vaudeville and he was on the bill,
With all the singers, dancers, acrobats and clowns,
There was a dancing bear, even a dog act there,
And a comedian who never let ‘em down,
But, when he came on to do his fav’rite song,
He really wowed ‘em in the cities and the towns,
They came from near and far, to see the vaudeville star,
The entertainer!


Now the curtain is going up,
The entertainer is taking a bow,
Does his dance step and sings his song,
Even gets all the audience to sing along,
Yes, he knows just what he must do,
Knows how to bring down the house when he’s through,
Snappy patter and jokes, he knows what pleases the folks,
The entertainer, the star of the show.

Man Tear Gassed Into Submission After Standoff Closes Bloor & St. George During Afternoon Rush

CityNews: Man Tear Gassed Into Submission After Standoff Closes Bloor & St. George During Afternoon Rush: "It was the last thing shoppers, strollers and motorists expected to see in one of the busiest spots in the downtown core - heavily armed Emergency Task Force officers standing with guns drawn, aimed at a stopped cab.

It began at Bloor and St. George around 2:40pm, when a man hailed a taxi, got in and then told the driver he was carrying a bomb. The cabbie quickly departed the vehicle and alerted authorities, who took no chances and brought out the heavy artillery."

NPR : The Art of the Interview, ESPN-Style:

All Things Considered, August 14, 2006 · The old saying goes, "There's no such thing as a stupid question." But in the opinion of at least one major television network, there is such a thing, and some of the least effective questions are coming from top broadcast journalists.

ESPN's John Sawatsky is tearing down icons such as Larry King and Mike Wallace as he preaches his guiding principles about how to properly conduct an interview.

And because I have autism, I think in pictures and sounds. I don't have the ability to process abstract thought the way that you do. Here's how my brain works: It's like the search engine Google for images. If you say the word 'love' to me, I'll surf the Internet inside my brain. Then, a series of images pops into my head. What I'll see, for example, is a picture of a mother horse with a foal, or I think of 'Herbie the Lovebug,' scenes from the movie Love Story or the Beatles song, 'Love, love, love...'"J

That made Sapolsky crazy -- and curious about why his aging ears still crave the music he loved in college. Is there a certain age when the typical American passes from the novelty stage to utter predictability?"

NPR : 'My Lobotomy': Howard Dully's Journey: "On Jan. 17, 1946, a psychiatrist named Walter Freeman launched a radical new era in the treatment of mental illness in this country. On that day, he performed the first-ever transorbital or 'ice-pick' lobotomy in his Washington, D.C., office. Freeman believed that mental illness was related to overactive emotions, and that by cutting the brain he cut away these feelings.

Freeman, equal parts physician and showman, became a barnstorming crusader for the procedure. Before his death in 1972, he performed transorbital lobotomies on some 2,500 patients in 23 states."

Initially, members of the NPR News and Cultural Programming staffs compiled a long list of creative works that included visual arts, film, television, music, photography, games, advertising, literature, fictional characters, places and monuments.

Pedestrian crossing

Pedestrian crossing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "A pedestrian crossing or crosswalk is a designated point on a road at which some means are employed to assist pedestrians wishing to cross. They are designed to keep pedestrians together where they can be seen by motorists, and where they can cross most safely with the flow of vehicular traffic. Pedestrian crossings are often at intersections, but may also be at other points on busy roads that would otherwise be perilous to attempt to cross. They are common near schools or in other areas where there are a large number of children. Crosswalks can be considered a traffic calming technique."

The history of Dublin Dr Pepper: "Dublin Dr Pepper History

In 1885 Waco, Texas was a wild frontier town, nicknamed “six-shooter junction.” Wade Morrison’s Old Corner Drug Store was a prominent business and popular meeting place in downtown Waco. People came in for everything from flea powder to stationery, from cigars to fountain drinks.

One of Morrison’s employees, pharmacist Charles Alderton, noticed how customers loved the smell of the soda fountain with its many fruit, spice and berry aromas. He wanted to invent a drink that tasted the wonderful way the soda fountain smelled. After much experimentation he finally felt he had hit on “something different.” Patrons at the drug store agreed."

Dublin Dr Pepper: "What makes us unique? Besides being the oldest Dr Pepper bottler in the world, Dublin Dr Pepper also has the distinction of being bottled with Imperial Pure Cane Sugar - the original Dr Pepper formula.

Dublin, Texas—also known officially as Dr Pepper, Texas for one week each June during our annual birthday celebration—became the site for the world’s oldest Dr Pepper bottling plant in 1891, just six years after the drink's invention in nearby Waco."

Green Bay Packers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They are currently members of the Northern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The team is sometimes affectionately referred to as simply 'The Pack'.

The Packers are the last remaining example of the 'small town teams' that comprised a majority of the NFL during the 1920s. Green Bay is by far the smallest media market to be the home of a North American major professional sports league (though their fanbase includes Milwaukee, the rest of Wisconsin, and beyond).

Founded in 1919, the Packers joined the NFL in 1921 during the league's second season. Today, the team holds the record for most NFL league championships with 12: nine NFL Championships prior to the Super Bowl era, Super Bowl I, Super Bowl II, and Super Bowl XXXI. The team also holds the distinction of winning the first two AFL-NFL Championship Games that were held before the AFL-NFL Merger, later referred to as Super Bowl I and II.

The Packers are currently the only publicly owned major league level professional sports team in the United States. Currently, a total of 4,749,925 shares are owned by 111,921 stockholders - none of whom receives any dividend"

The Bills began play in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League and joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger.

The Bills won two consecutive AFL titles in 1964 and 1965. The club is also the first and only team to win four consecutive American Football Conference Championships, though they failed to win any of the subsequent Super Bowls. The franchise name comes from the legendary western hunter and performer Buffalo Bill."

The Daytime Series aired from November 3, 1975 to September 14, 1979. On September 23, 1979, the show was retooled and given a new name, Archie Bunker's Place. With that title, the sitcom lasted another four years, finally ending its run in 1983.

Produced by Norman Lear and based on a British television series Til Death Us Do Part, the show broke ground in its depiction of issues previously deemed unsuitable for network television comedy, such as racism, homosexuality, women's liberation, rape, breast cancer and impotence.

The show was wildly popular, and ranked #1 in the yearly Nielsen ratings from 1971 to 1976. Only one other program, The Cosby Show, has tied All In The Family in terms of years at the top of the ratings. In 2002, it ranked #4 on TV Guide's list of the 50 greatest TV shows of all time. TV Guide also named the show's protagonist, Archie Bunker, TV's greatest character of all time."

It appears on NBC in the United States, Channel 4 in the United Kingdom, Channel 6 in Ireland and CH (Television System) TV in Canada. It stars Jason Lee, Ethan Suplee, and Jaime Pressly. Lee stars as Earl Hickey, a scruffy, petty crook with occasional run ins with the law, whose newly-won $100,000 lottery ticket is lost when he is hit by a car. He develops a belief in the concept of karma when he hears about it during the Carson Daly show while lying in his hospital bed after the accident. He decides he wants to turn his life around. After a few good deeds, his $100,000 ticket comes back to him. With his new lucky money, he proceeds to make a list of all the bad things he's done, and cross items off that list, one-by-one.

Suplee plays Earl's 'simple' but generally very kind hearted younger brother Randy, who is his sidekick as Earl seeks to amend for his past transgressions. Pressly is his ex-wife Joy. The show also stars Eddie Steeples as Joy's husband Darnell, and Nadine Velazquez as Catalina, a good-hearted friend and maid at the hotel where the Hickey brothers live"

NBC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

NBC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "NBC, the National Broadcasting Company, is an American television and radio network based in New York City's Rockefeller Center. It is sometimes referred to as the Peacock Network due to its stylized peacock logo. The network is now part of the media conglomerate NBC Universal and supplies programming to more than 200 affiliated U.S. stations. NBC Universal is a unit of General Electric.

It is the last U.S. network holding company to legally abandon the name behind its acronym; in 2003, the corporate name was shrunk from 'National Broadcasting Company, Inc.' as it had been from 1926 to 'NBC Universal, Inc.' following a merger with French Vivendi Universal's Entertainment division in 2004. NBC still uses the full name during occasional broadcasts, such as its coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. (ABC still occasionally uses American Broadcasting Company or Companies for some copyrights and on-air branding.)"

National Public Radio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

National Public Radio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "National Public Radio (NPR) is an independent, private, not-for-profit membership organization of public radio stations in the United States. NPR was created in 1970, following the passage of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 which established the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and also led to the creation of the Public Broadcasting Service. The network was founded on February 26, 1970, headed by Robert Conley with a partnership of talented journalists, with 30 employees and 90 public radio stations as charter members.

Like its competitors, American Public Media and Public Radio International, NPR produces and distributes news and cultural programming. Its member stations are not required to broadcast all of these programs and most public radio stations broadcast programs from all three providers. Its flagship programs are two drive time news broadcasts, Morning Edition, and the afternoon All Things Considered; both are carried by nearly all NPR affiliates and in 2002 were the second- and third-most popular radio programs in the country. Morning Edition has been the network's most popular program since 1979."

Jazz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It is characterized by blue notes, syncopation, swing, call and response, polyrhythms, and improvisation. Jazz has been described as 'America's Classical Music', and started in saloons throughout the nation."

European classical music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

European classical music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Classical music is a broad, somewhat imprecise term, referring to music produced in, or rooted in the traditions of, European art, ecclesiastical and concert music, encompassing a broad period from roughly 1000 to the present day. The central norms of this tradition, according to one school of thought, developed between 1550 and 1825, focusing on what is known as the common practice period.

The term classical music did not appear until the early 19th century, in an attempt to 'canonize' the period from Bach to Beethoven as an era in music parallel to the golden age of sculpture, architecture and art of classical antiquity, (from which of course no music has directly survived). The earliest reference to 'classical music' recorded by the Oxford English Dictionary is from about 1836. Since that time the term has developed in common parlance as a simple opposite to popular music"

The CBC's FM network was launched in 1946, but was strictly a simulcast of the AM radio network until 1960. In that year, distinct programming on the FM network was launched for the first time. This was briefly discontinued in 1962, but resumed again in 1964.

In 1975, the FM network was rebranded CBC Stereo, to distinguish it from the AM network, known as CBC Radio. However, in the 1990s many of the old AM stations moved to FM as well, so in 1997 the CBC rebranded the networks as the current CBC Radio One and CBC Radio Two.

Radio Two is not as widely available across Canada as Radio One. While Radio One is available in most communities across Canada regardless of size, Radio Two for the most part is available only in larger cities. Radio Two also has a more consistent national schedule than Radio One, with only one and a half hours each week devoted to distinct regional programming. Regional programming primarily consists of a weekly arts magazine which airs on Sunday afternoons at noon, and a daily calendar of local arts"

The OHL Arena & Travel Guide - Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto Marlboros: "Maple Leaf Gardens was once called the most important religious building in English Canada. This may seem an exaggeration, but it shows the status of hockey in Canada. Every year it was the Leafs in their Gardens versus the Habs in their Forum. Two solitudes, two arenas, one game.

That's all gone now. The Leafs left in 1999 for the spiffy but boring Air Canada Centre. However, two of their tenants remained for another season: the Toronto Rock lacrosse team and the Majors."
