And the earth was waste and without form; and it was dark on the face of the
deep: and the Spirit of God was moving on the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God, looking on the light, saw that it was good: and God made a division
between the light and the dark,
Naming the light, Day, and the dark, Night. And there was evening and there was
morning, the first day.

Southern United States, with roots in traditional folk music, Celtic Music,
Blues, Gospel music, and Old-time music that began to develop rapidly in the
The term country music began to be widely applied to the music in the 1940s
and was fully embraced in the 1970s while country and western declined in use.
"Encompassing a wide range of musical genres, from folk songs and religious
hymns to rhythm and blues, country music reflects our Nation's cultural
diversity as well as the aspirations and ideals that unite us. It springs from
the heart of America and speaks eloquently of our history, our faith in God, our
devotion to family, and our appreciation for the value of freedom and hard work.
With its simple melodies and timeless, universal themes, country music appeals
to listeners of all ages and from all walks of life." (President George H. W.
Bush celebrated country music by declaring October, 1990 "Country Music Month")

Music is a human activity which involves
structured and audible sounds, which is used for artistic or aesthetic,
entertainment, or ceremonial purposes.

of music often listed are those elements given primacy in European-influenced
classical music: melody, harmony, rhythm, tone color/timbre, and form. A more
comprehensive list is given by stating the aspects of sound: pitch, timbre,
loudness, and duration.
Common terms used to discuss particular pieces
include melody, which is a succession of notes heard as some sort of unit;
chord, which is a simultaneity of notes heard as some sort of unit; chord
progression, which is a succession of chords (simultaneity succession); harmony,
which is the relationship between two or more pitches; counterpoint, which is
the simultaneity and organization of different melodies; and rhythm, which is
the organization of the durational aspects of music.
On the Internet, the Domain Name System (DNS) associates various
sorts of information with so-called domain names; most importantly, it
serves as the “phone book” for the Internet: it translates
human-readable computer hostnames. Domaining is the business of buying,
selling, developing and monetizing Internet domain names. Such domain
name portfolios often include cleverly chosen and highly marketable
generic domain names, or domains whose registrations had lapsed yet
still retain reasonable traffic. There is sometimes no actual intent to
use any of the domain names with the exception of generating advertising
revenue through domain parking.
The 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as Euro
2012, will be the 14th European Championship for national football teams
sanctioned by UEFA. The final tournament will be hosted by Poland and Ukraine
between 8 June and 1 July 2012. This bid was chosen by UEFA's Executive
Committee in 2007. This will be the last European Championship finals tournament
to contain 16 nations; 24 will compete from Euro 2016 onward. Qualification was
contested by 51 nations between August 2010 and November 2011 to join the two
host nations in the tournament. The winner of the tournament will qualify for
the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup hosted by Brazil.
Birds are categorised as a biological class, Aves. The earliest known species of this class is Archaeopteryx lithographica, from the Late Jurassic period. According to the most recent consensus, Aves and a sister group, the order Crocodilia, together form a group of unnamed rank, the Archosauria.
Phylogenetically, Aves is usually defined as all descendants of the most recent common ancestor of modern birds (or of a specific modern bird species like Passer domesticus), and Archaeopteryx. Modern phylogenies place birds in the dinosaur clade Theropoda.
Modern birds are divided into two superorders, the Paleognathae (mostly flightless birds like ostriches), and the wildly diverse Neognathae, containing all other birds.

Contract bridge, usually known simply as bridge, is a trick-taking card game
of skill for four players, usually sitting around a table, who form two
partnerships, or "sides". The partners on each side sit opposite one another.
The game consists of two main parts – bidding (or auction) and play; the rules
of play are rather simple and similar to other trick-taking games. However, the
bidding and associated conventions are much more complex, and represent the true
learning barrier to new players. Also, there is an immense variety of techniques
in play of the hand, whose effective use requires learning and experience.
the poker game, emphasizing on the online poker, the betting structure, poker
variants, poker strategy and specific poker tournaments.
Online poker is the game of poker played over the Internet. Online poker
rooms tend to be viewed as more player-friendly and allow the players to play
for very low stakes. It has been partly
responsible for a dramatic increase in the number of poker players worldwide.
While the practice of comping players with free meals, hotel rooms, and
merchandise is quite common in B&M casinos, online poker rooms have needed to
develop new ways to reward faithful customers. The most common way of doing this
is through deposit bonuses, where the player is given a bonus code to enter when
placing money into an account. One common feature of the online poker sites is
to offer tournaments called satellites by which the winners gain entry to
real-life poker tournaments. Online poker rooms reward customers through deposit
bonuses, where the player is given a bonus code to enter when placing money into
The rules of casino blackjack are generally determined by law or regulation, which establishes certain rule variations allowed at the discretion of the casino. The rules of any particular game are generally posted on or near the table, failing which there is an expectation that casino staff will provide them on request. Over 100 variations of blackjack have been documented.
Each blackjack game has a basic strategy, which is playing a hand of any total value against any dealer’s up-card, which loses the least money to the house in the long term.
Blackjack can be played in tournament form, where players start with equal numbers of chips and the aim is to finish among the top chip-holders.
European Commission staff have to write many different types of documents.
Whatever the type - legislation, a technical report, minutes, a press release or
speech - a clear document will be more effective, and more easily and quickly
understood. This guide will help you to write clearly whether you are using your
own language or one of the other official languages, all of which are also
working languages of the Commission according to Council Regulation No 1/1998
(still valid today!)
There are hints, not rules, and when applying them you should take account of
your target readers and the purpose of your document.
Three good reasons to write clearly are:
to work more effectively togetherto reduce unnecessary correspondenceto build goodwill.
This e-book present some of the most important bridge bidding systems used
used in duplicate bridge tournaments, detailing the most known bridge bidding
system, Standard American Yellow Card, by using a logical sequential order for
openings, answers, competitive bids and defensive play in order to help the
players during the games.
Much of the complexity in bridge arises from the difficulty of arriving at a
good final contract in the auction.
A bidding system in contract bridge is the set of agreements and
understandings assigned to calls and sequences of calls used by a partnership,
and includes a full description of the meaning of each treatment and convention.
Standard American Yellow Card is a specific set of partnership agreements and
conventions, using Standard American as a base. Standard American Yellow Card is
a very specific collection of agreements, which can, of course, be modified and
augmented by partnership agreement. In practical use, the term is often mis-used
to refer to Standard American in general, or it could refer to a system that
used SAYC as a base and made additional augmentations or changes to the base

A computer is a machine that inputs (takes in) facts and information
(known as data), and then processes (does something to or with) it.
Afterwards it outputs, or displays, the results for you to see. Data is
all kinds of information, including, pictures, letters, numbers, and
sounds. There are two main parts of computers, hardware and software.
Hardware is all of the parts of the computer you can see and touch.
Software is the instructions that a computer uses to do what you ask it
to. Pieces of software are often called programs.

alligators and crocodiles, turtles, lizards, and snakes.
Reptiles are tetrapods and amniotes, animals whose embryos are surrounded by
an amniotic membrane. Today they are represented by four surviving orders:
crocodilia (crocodiles, caimans and alligators), sphenodontia (tuataras from New
Zealand, squamata (lizards, snakes and amphisbaenids - "worm-lizards"), and

characteristics of the automobiles, car maintenance, styling features,
car body style, the standard classification of the cars, an history of
the automobiles, introduction in the automotive industry, and the
traffic code, rules and signs.
An automobile, usually called a car (an old word for carriage) or a
truck, is a wheeled vehicle that carries its own engine. Older terms
include horseless carriage and motor car, with “motor” referring to what
is now usually called the engine. It has seats for the driver and,
almost without exception, for at least one passenger. The automobile was
hailed as an environmental improvement over horses when it was first
introduced. Before its introduction, in New York City, over 10,000 tons
of manure had to be removed from the streets daily. However, in 2006 the
automobile is one of the primary sources of worldwide air pollution and
cause of substantial noise and health effects.
Dance music is music composed, played, or
both, specifically to accompany dancing.
It can be either the whole musical piece or
part of a larger musical arrangement. Dance music works usually bear the name of
the corresponding dance, e.g. waltzes, the tango, the bolero, the can-can,
minuets, salsa, various kinds of jigs and the breakdown. Other dance forms
include contradance, the merengue, the cha-cha-cha. Often it is difficult to
know whether the name of the music came first or the name of the dance. Although
dance is often accompanied by music, it can also be presented alone (Postmodern
dance) or provide its own accompaniment (tap dance). Dance presented with music
may or may not be performed in time to the music depending on the style of
dance. Dance performed without music is said to be danced to its own rhythm. An
introduction to classical and modern dance including hip hop dance, what is
dance, and the dance music (electronic music, rock and roll, disco, house,
techno, trance, etc.)

Chess (the "Game of Kings") is a board game for two players, which requires
32 chesspieces (or chessmen) and a board demarcated by 64 squares. Gameplay does
not involve random luck; consisting solely of strategy, (see also tactics, and
theory). Chess is one of humanity's more popular games; it is has been described
not only as a game, but also as both art and science. Chess is sometimes seen as
an abstract wargame; as a "mental martial art".

The cat, also called the domestic cat or house cat, is a small feline
carnivorous mammal of the subspecies Felis silvestris catus. Its most immediate
pre-domestication ancestor is the African wild cat, Felis silvestris lybica. The
cat has been living in close association with humans for at least 3,500 years;
the Ancient Egyptians routinely used cats to keep mice and other rodents (mostly
rats) away from their grain (and also believed that cats were sacred to the
goddess Bastet). The history of the domestic cat may stretch back even further,
as 8,000-year-old bones of humans and cats were found buried together on the
island of Cyprus.
predicting sports results by making a wager on the outcome of a sporting event.
Aside from simple wagers--betting a friend
that one's favorite baseball team will win its division, for instance, or buying
a football "square" for the Super Bowl--sports betting is commonly done through
a bookmaker. Bookmakers generally offer two types of wagers on the winner of a
sporting event: a straight-up or money line bet, or a point spread wager.
Moneylines and straight-up prices are used to set odds on sports such as soccer,
baseball and hockey (the scoring nature of which renders point spreads
impractical) as well as individual vs. individual matches, like boxing.

The game consists of two cards being dealt face down to each player and then
five community cards being placed face-up by the dealer—a series of three ("the

theory, video game consoles, cheating, links, etc.
While many different subdivisions have been proposed, anthropologists
classify games under three major headings, and have drawn some conclusions as to
the social bases that each sort of game requires. They divide games broadly
into, games of pure skill, such as hopscotch and target shooting; games of pure
strategy, such as checkers, go, or tic-tac-toe; and games of chance, such as
craps and snakes and ladders. A guide for game preview and rules: history,

Movie is considered to be an important art form; films entertain, educate,
enlighten and inspire audiences.
Film is a term that encompasses motion pictures as individual projects, as
well as — in metonymy — the field in general. The origin of the name comes from
the fact that photographic film (also called filmstock) has historically been
the primary medium for recording and displaying motion pictures. Many other
terms exist — motion pictures (or just pictures or "picture"), the silver
screen, photoplays, the cinema, picture shows, flicks — and commonly movies.
modeling, and execution of electronic media delivery via Internet.
Web development is a broad term for any activities related to developing a
web site for the World Wide Web or an intranet. This can include e-commerce
business development, web design, web content development,
client-side/server-side coding, and web server configuration. However, among web
professionals, "web development" usually refers only to the non-design aspects
of building web sites, e.g. writing markup and coding.
Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of
plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic
businesses, or social network services.
Web design is a process of conceptualization, planning, modeling, and
execution of electronic media delivery via Internet in the form of Markup
