    • Websites Owned: Eteamz.com
    Active provides technology and marketing services to thousands of organizations and is the leader for online registration and online communities for active lifestyles, serving millions of participants worldwide.


    The Active Network, Inc., got its official start in 1998 as a Web portal with regional grassroots sports information to recreational athletes, though some of the company's software development began as early as 1976 under Class Software, Ltd. Within two years, Active.com was processing more than one million transactions involving event and league registrations, web publishing and e-commerce. The company further solidified its place in the participatory sports market with the acquisition and development of media properties such as:
    • eteamz.com, which offers team home pages, online registration and fundraising services to teams, leagues, camps and tournaments.
    • ActiveEurope.com,offering online event registration, training tools, sport-specific content and community features.
    • ActiveGolf.com, a source of local golf information, online tee time reservations and more.
    Software Technology and Marketing Access With its online communities in full swing, The Active Network turned its attention to finding other ways to use technology to support participation in and management of sports, activities and organizations that foster healthy, active lifestyles. The company launched a full service marketing and promotions agency, the Active Marketing Group, to help brand marketers communicate with active consumers. The company also introduced a line of technology and marketing solutions to help community organizations manage programs, facilities, memberships, registrations, donations and Web content. One of the line’s initial offerings was Recware, the first-ever hosted, Internet registration solution for the recreation industry. That product was later joined by other industry-leading software and online brands such as ActiveNet (RecNet) and Class Software, Ltd., the latter acquisition bringing an additional 30 years of experience in recreation and municipal management software solutions. The Active Network Today Today, the Active Network’s technology solutions are used by more than 100,000 events and 4000 community organizations. Active's media properties generate 100 million visits a month and over 12 million registered users participate through our online communities. The Active Network has made Inc. 500’s list of the fastest growing privately held companies for three years in a row, with average annual sales growth of 442.9 percent over that time.

    The European Union (EU) (English pronunciation: /ˌjʊərəˈpiːən ˈjuːnjən/) is an economic and political union of 27 member states which are located primarily in Europe. The EU traces its origins from the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) and the European Economic Community (EEC), formed by six countries in 1951 and 1958 respectively. In the intervening years the EU has grown in size by the accession of new member states and in power by the addition of policy areas to its remit. The Maastricht Treaty established the European Union under its current name in 1993. The latest amendment to the constitutional basis of the EU, the Treaty of Lisbon, came into force in 2009. The EU operates through a system of supranational independent institutions and intergovernmental negotiated decisions by the member states. Important institutions of the EU include the European Commission, the Council of the European Union, the European Council, the Court of Justice of the European Union, and the European Central Bank. The European Parliament is elected every five years by EU citizens. The EU has developed a single market through a standardised system of laws which apply in all member states.

    The government of the United States of America is the federal government of the constitutional republic of fifty states that constitute the United States of America, as well as one capitol district, and several other territories. The federal government is composed of three distinct branches: legislative, executive and judicial, which powers are vested by the U.S. Constitution in the Congress, the President, and the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, respectively; the powers and duties of these branches are further defined by acts of Congress, including the creation of executive departments and courts inferior to the Supreme Court. The full name of the republic is "The United States of America". No other name appears in the Constitution, and this is the name that appears on money, in treaties, and in legal cases to which it is a party (e.g., Charles T. Schenck v. United States). The terms "Government of the United States of America" or "United States Government" are often used in official documents to represent the federal government as distinct from the states collectively. In casual conversation or writing, the term "Federal Government" is often used, and the term

    The Leland Stanford Junior University, commonly referred to as Stanford University or Stanford, is an American private research university located in Stanford, California on an 8,180-acre (3,310 ha) campus near Palo Alto. It is situated in the northwestern Silicon Valley, approximately 20 miles (32 km) northwest of San Jose and 37 miles (60 km) southeast of San Francisco. Leland Stanford, Governor and Senator of California and leading railroad tycoon, and his wife Jane Lathrop Stanford founded the university in 1891 in honor of their son, Leland Stanford, Jr., who died of typhoid two months before his 16th birthday. The university was established as a coeducational and nondenominational institution. Tuition was free until the 1930s. The university struggled financially after the senior Stanford's 1893 death and after much of the campus was damaged by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Following World War II, Provost Frederick Terman supported faculty and graduates' entrepreneurialism to build self-sufficient local industry in what would become known as Silicon Valley. By 1970, Stanford was home to a linear accelerator, and was one of the original four ARPANET nodes (precursor to

Canonical employs staff in more than 30 countries and maintains offices in London, Boston, Taipei, Montreal, Shanghai, São Paulo and the Isle of Man. Canonical Ltd. has created and continues to back several projects. Principally these are free/open-source software (FOSS) or tools designed to improve collaboration between free software developers and contributors. In a Guardian interview in May 2008, Mark Shuttleworth said that the Canonical business model was service provision and explained that Canonical was not yet close to profitability. Canonical also claimed it will wait for the business to turn into a profitable one within another 3 to 5 years. He regarded Canonical as positioning itself as demand for services related to free software rose. This strategy has been compared to Red Hat's business strategies in the 1990s. However, in an early 2009 New York Times article, Shuttleworth said that Canonical's revenue was "creeping" towards $30 million, the company's break-even point. In 2007,

Since the passing of the Broadcasting Act 1990, its legal name has been Channel 3, the number 3 having no real meaning other than to distinguish it from BBC One, BBC Two and Channel 4. In part, the number 3 was assigned as televisions would usually be tuned so that the regional ITV station would be on the third button, the other stations being allocated to the number within their name. ITV is a network of television channels operating regional television services as well as sharing programmes between each other to be displayed on the entire network. In recent years, several of these companies have merged so that currently, the fifteen franchises are currently in the hands of three companies.

It can also refer to some of CBS's first demonstrations of color television, which were held in a former Tiffany & Co. building in New York City in 1950. The network has its origins in United Independent Broadcasters Inc., a collection of 16 radio stations that was bought by William S. Paley in 1928 and renamed the Columbia Broadcasting System.

His business expanded rapidly, and by 1939 he had over 100 Tesco stores across the country.

Originally founded on August 1, 1948 as the Henri Nannen publishing house, Gruner + Jahr was created in 1965 from a merger by acquisition, by publishers John Jahr Sr. and Gerd Bucerius joining the printing firm of Richard Gruner. In 1969, Richard Gruner retired, and thanks to the entrepreneurship of Reinhard Mohn, Bertelsmann acquired 25% of the ownership. Over the next fifteen years, the firm grew by expansion, acquisition (publishers Kindler & Schiermeier) and merger (Spiegel Verlag and Motor-Presse Verlag). By 1976, Bertelsmann owned a 74.9% stake, and the Hamburg publishing family Jahr owned 25.1%, a balance which has been maintained through 2007. In 1978, Gruner + Jahr became the first German publishing house to expand into other European and International markets. Over the next twenty years, publishing houses in France, the USA, and Spain were purchased, and a number of new magazines were started in Germany including Impulse, Schöner Essen, and Gala.

CNPP promotes dietary guidance by linking scientific research to the nutritional needs of the American public. The creation of the Center came at a time when the American public was becoming increasingly aware of the importance of diet, yet was receiving conflicting nutrition messages. The Center, therefore, serves as a touchstone where the public is assured that the nutrition guidance they receive is based on sound research and analysis. The Center reports to the Office of the Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services. The staff of the Center is composed primarily of nutritionists, nutrition scientists, dietitians, economists, and policy experts, all of whom were chosen for their expertise. Dr. Rajen Anand is the current Executive Director of the Center. The Deputy Director is Dr. Robert C. Post.

The SK Group is composed of 92 subsidiary and affiliate companies that share the SK brand and culture. It changed its name from Sunkyoung Group (Korean: 선경그룹) to SK Group in 1997. SK Holdings ranked 72nd in the 2009 Fortune Global 500. SK Group has more than 30,000 employees who work from 113 offices worldwide.

SK has recently further broadened its range of business to semiconductors, merging Hynix into SK Hynix.

      The Onion is an American news satire organization. It is an entertainment newspaper and a website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news, in addition to a non-satirical entertainment section known as The A.V. Club. It claims a national print circulation of 400,000 and says 61 percent of its web site readers are between 18 and 44 years old. Since 2007, the organization has been publishing satirical news audios and videos online, as the "Onion News Network". Web traffic on theonion.com amounts to some 7.5 million unique visitors per month. The Onion's articles comment on current events, both real and fictional. It parodies such traditional newspaper features as editorials, man-on-the-street interviews, and stock quotes on a traditional newspaper layout with an AP-style editorial voice. Much of its humor depends on presenting everyday events as newsworthy and by playing on commonly used phrases, as in the headline "Drugs Win Drug War." A second part of the newspaper is a non-satirical entertainment section called The A.V. Club that features interviews and reviews of various newly released media, as well as other weekly features.

      Government of Australia

      Government of Australia

      The Government of the Commonwealth of Australia, also known as the Australian Government, Commonwealth Government or Federal Government, is the administrative authority of Australia. The Commonwealth of Australia, a federal constitutional monarchy under a parliamentary democracy, was formed in 1901 as a result of an agreement among six self-governing British colonies, which became the six states. The terms of this agreement are embodied in the Australian Constitution, which was drawn up at a Constitutional Convention and ratified by the people of the colonies at referendums. The structure of the Australian Government may be examined in light of two distinct concepts, namely federalism and the separation of powers into executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. Separation of powers is implied from the structure of the Constitution which breaks down the branches of government into separate chapters. Section 1 of the Australian Constitution creates a democratic legislature, the bicameral Parliament of Australia which consists of the Queen and two houses, the Senate and the House of Representatives. Section 51 of the Constitution provides for the Commonwealth

The GUU organises social affairs for its members, provides catering and entertainment and generally seeks to enhance the experience of its members during their time at the University of Glasgow. Students are eligible to become members for free at any point throughout their University career and alumni may become Life Members by applying to the Board of Management. Students at the university instituted the idea of a union building in 1885 to help promote social interaction on campus. The union's formation was driven by members of Glasgow University Dialectic Society, the Glasgow University Medico-Chirurgical Society and the Glasgow University Athletic Club. The same group formed a Students’ Representative Council in 1886 to raise funds for the building and procured the sum of £5000 from Dr John McIntyre of Odiham, Hampshire. In 1889 the Glasgow University Students' Representative Council obtained statutory recognition under the Act of 1889 and in 1890 they managed to raise sufficient funds to build the union.

Heavily influenced by British bands like Coldplay, Elbow, Travis, and Radiohead, Redding take their name from the character of Ellis Redding (played by Morgan Freeman) in one of the band’s favorite films, The Shawshank Redemption. The band consists of: “First we created the band,” recalls drummer Jon Stamm, “and with that established, we faced the problem of learning how to play instruments.” Having grown up playing music together since grade school, Graves, Stamm, and Gula had become a formidable garage band by high school. In their junior year, the trio adopted the name For the Moment, with the joint decision to step back and get serious. 2003 would be a quiet but crucial year for the developing band. In the singer’s basement, a cheap recording studio was built, which opened an important new door to the writing process. In contrast to previous years, ‘03 would be spent in the studio polishing just a handful of songs, rather than aimlessly playing live shows. Graves found himself at the helm of writing the music, with acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies working their way into the maturing

He is also well known for IslamOnline, a popular website he helped found in 1997 and for which he now serves as chief religious scholar.
