Yates, under the pseudonym Al Kay, got his broadcasting break when he began a weekly Saturday morning pop show on Radio Derby in 1973. That same station offered him the chance to move away from music-based shows to speech programming. He began his journalism career in 1976 with BBC Local Radio stations in Derby, Leicester, and Birmingham. He made his debut TV appearance at Pebble Mill in Birmingham in 1978 reporting for BBC Midlands's regional news programme ''Midlands Today''. Whilst at BBC Midlands, Yates was also a regional continuity announcer and newsreader. He also appeared in some "Play for Today" dramas as himself. He left the BBC and joined ITV in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1980 at Grampian Television as a presenter and reporter for ''North Tonight''. By 1986 he was presenting Anglia Television's evening news show ''About Anglia.'' Following the opening of the North Midland Railway between Leeds and Derby the new through Masbrough and Rotherham station, later Rotherham Masborough (Rotherham Masborough railway station), was opened about half a mile from the town centre. A junction was laid connecting this north–south line to the Sheffield and Rotherham Railway at Holmes, giving the North Midland access to the Wicker terminal of the S&R in Sheffield. The S&R eventually became part of the Midland Railway following amalgamations in 1844. The fact that the Midland also operated the much larger Masborough station could have relegated Westgate to being a backwater, but Westgate was much more central, and the standard service pattern on the Midland line after 1870, was for some Sheffield–Nottingham, Sheffield–Derby and Sheffield–Manchester local trains to start back from Westgate and run through Sheffield Midland (Sheffield Midland railway station) calling at all stations: this kept Westgate a busy and important station right up to its closure. Avery was born in Derby and educated at Rock Ferry High School, Birkenhead and Liverpool University. War Service (Second World War) in the Royal Navy interrupted his studies, which he resumed after the war at the London School of Oriental and African Studies (School of Oriental and African Studies), graduating in 1949. He learned Arabic and Persian and knowledge of these led to his appointment as chief language training officer with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (Anglo-Persian Oil Company) in Abadan, South-West Iran. In 1951 the government of Iran nationalised the oil industry and Avery moved to Baghdad, where he taught English. In 1952, he published, with John Heath-Stubbs his first translations of Hafiz. In 1958 he was appointed Lecturer in Persian Language Literature and History at Cambridge University, becoming a Fellow of King's College in 1964. He retired from the Lectureship in 1990, but continued researching and writing as a Fellow of King's, and continued to lead an informal reading group in Persian poetry, despite ill health, until his last months.

History Lying on the Derby–Nottingham line, the first station on the site was opened by the Midland Counties Railway (MCR) on 5 June 1839. The fifth station from Nottingham, it was kept by a Mr. Carter. Built as a halt known as Attenborough Gate in 1856 on the Midland Counties Railway line from Nottingham to Derby which had opened in 1839, the station opened next to a level crossing and tickets were bought from the crossing keeper. publisher Hull Citybuild archiveurl http: web.archive.org web 20070607094633 http: www.hullcitybuild.co.uk index.asp?PageID 1 archivedate 2007-06-07 Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne, Sheffield and the Midlands (English Midlands) cities of Birmingham, Derby and Nottingham.

Alcmund was buried at Lilleshall in Shropshire, where miracles were reported at the tomb. Due to Danish raids, his body was translated to Derby, and St Alkmund's Church (St Alkmund's Church, Derby) and its replacement were dedicated to him. The church was demolished in the 20th century and several earlier churches were revealed stretching back to the 9th century. Artefacts found included the stone sarcophagus.

By 1986 he was presenting Anglia Television's evening news show ''About Anglia.'' She was maid of honor to the queen-mother Catherine de' Medici and inspired an ardent passion in the duke of Anjou, brother of Charles IX (Charles IX of France). This intrigue deterred the duke from agreeing to an arranged marriage with Elizabeth of England (Elizabeth I of England), which was desired for him; but he soon abandoned Chateauneuf for Marie of Cleves (Marie of Cleves, Princess of Condé) (1571). The court then wished to find a husband for her, whose singular beauty gave her an influence which the queen-mother feared, and matches were in turn suggested with the ''voivode'' of Transylvania, the earl of Leicester; with Du Prat, provost (Provost (religion)) of Paris; and with the count of Brienne, all of which came to nothing. alias origin Leicester, England instrument '''Gaye Bykers On Acid''' (GBOA) were an English (England) psychedelic (Psychedelic music) rock (rock music) band (musical ensemble) from Leicester, and one of the founder members of the Grebo (Grebo (music)) music scene.

History From its establishment in 1889 to 1974 the county council covered the administrative county (administrative counties of England) of Leicestershire, excluding Leicester. In 1974 the Local Government Act (Local Government Act 1972) reconstituted Leicestershire County Council, adding the former county borough of Leicester, and the small county of Rutland to the area. On 1 April 1997 these were removed from the County Council area again, to become unitary authorities (unitary authority).

Painted in 1615-1616. He went first to Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, where he was entertained by Sigismund III Vasa. In June of that year he arrived in Germany, where he received the title of Earl (count palatine) and knight of the Roman Empire from the Emperor Rudolph II (Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor). Pope Paul V also conferred upon him the title of Earl. From Germany Sir Robert went to Florence and then Rome, where he entered on Sunday, 27 September 1609, attended by a suite of eighteen persons. He next visited Milan, and then proceeded to Genoa, whence he embarked to Spain, arriving in Barcelona in December 1609. He sent for his Persian wife and they remained in Spain, principally at Madrid, until the summer of 1611. From the 1230s on, Peter preached against heresy, and especially Catharism, which had many adherents in thirteenth-century Northern Italy. Catharism was a form of dualism, also called Manichaeism, and rejected the authority of the Pope and many Christian teachings. Pope Gregory IX appointed him General Inquisitor for northern Italy in 1234. and Peter evangelized nearly the whole of Italy, preaching in Rome, Florence, Bologna, Genoa, and Como. In literature, Giovanni Verga mirrored the style of the Verismo painters. This famous, Sicilian-born writer of realist fiction lived in Florence during the same period as them—1865–1867—and his best known book, ''Cavalleria rusticana'', contains certain verbal parallels to the effects achieved on canvas by the Tuscan landscape school of this era. "Espousing an approach that later put him in the camp of verismo (verism), his particular sentence structure and rhythm have some of the qualities of the macchia. Like the Macchiaioli, he was fascinated by topographical exactitude set in a nationalist framework"— to quote from Albert Boime's work, ''The Art of the Macchia and the Risorgimento''. Standard Italian (Italian language) derives from the city speech of Florence and the regional speech of Tuscany: the Florentine influence upon early Italian literature (e.g. ''Divine Comedy'') established that dialect as base for the standard language of Italy. Life and work Lebel had his first exhibition in 1955 at Galleria Numero in Florence, Italy. After a brief period of time with Surrealists, Lebel exhibited in Milan and Paris, and then went on to exhibit at various museums and galeries around the world. He has regularly collaborated with artist and writer Arnaud Labelle-Rojoux. In 1602 he was living at Florence, and a plot to murder James VI of Scotland having come to the ears of the grand-duke of Tuscany, Wotton was entrusted with letters to warn the king of the danger, and with Italian antidotes against poison. As "Ottavio Baldi" he travelled to Scotland by way of Norway. He was well received by James, and remained three months at the Scottish court, retaining his Italian incognito. He then returned to Florence, but on receiving the news of James's accession hurried to England. James knighted him, and offered him the embassy at Madrid or Paris; but Wotton, knowing that both these offices involved ruinous expense, desired rather to represent James at Venice. In the spring of 1846, she met Giuseppe Mazzini in England, who had been in exile from Italy since 1837. Gura, 235 Fuller also met the Italian revolutionary Giovanni Angelo Ossoli, a marquis who had been disinherited by his family because of his support for Mazzini. Dickenson, 188 Fuller and Ossoli moved in together in Florence, Italy (Florence), likely before they were married, if they ever were. Cheever, 176–177 Fuller originally did not support marrying him, in part because of their different religions; she was Protestant (Protestantism) and he was Roman Catholic (Roman Catholic Church). Deiss, 97 Emerson speculated that the couple was "married perhaps in Oct. Nov. or Dec" of 1847, though he did not explain his reasoning. Von Mehren, 341 Biographers have speculated that the couple married on April 4, 1848, to celebrate the anniversary of their first meeting. Von Mehren, 300 By the time the couple moved to Florence, they were referred to as husband and wife, though it is unclear if any formal ceremony took place. Blanchard, 328 It seems certain that at the time their child was born, they were not married. By New Year's Day 1848, she suspected that she was pregnant but kept it from Ossoli for several weeks. Von Mehren, 276–277 Their child, Angelo Eugene Philip Ossoli, was born in early September 1848; Gura, 237 they nicknamed him Angelino. The couple was very secretive about their relationship but, after Angelino suffered an unnamed illness, they became closer. Deiss, 281 Fuller finally informed her mother about Ossoli and Angelino in August 1849. The letter explained that she had kept silent so as not to upset her "but it has become necessary, on account of the child, for us to live publicly and permanently together." Her mother's response makes it clear that she was aware that a legal marriage had not taken place. Deiss, 282 Even so, she was happy for her daughter, writing: "I send my first kiss with my fervent blessing to my grandson." Blanchard, 317 Modern biographers are still unclear if Fuller and Ossoli ever married. Slater, 204 Anticonformism of the new poetry Montale moved to Florence in 1927 to work as editor for the publisher Bemporad. Florence was the cradle of the Italian poetry of that age, with works like the ''Canti orfici'' by Dino Campana (1914) and the first lyrics by Ungaretti (Giuseppe Ungaretti) for the review ''Lacerba''. Other poets like Umberto Saba and Vincenzo Cardarelli had been highly praised by the Florentine publishers. In 1929 Montale was asked to be chairman of the Gabinetto Vieusseux Library, a post from which he was expelled in 1938 by the fascist government. In the meantime he collaborated to the magazine ''Solaria (Solaria (literary magazine))'', and (starting in 1927) frequented the literary café Le Giubbe Rosse ("Red Jackets") on the Piazza Vittoria (Piazza della Repubblica) (now Piazza della Repubblica). Visiting often several times a day, he became a central figure among a group of writers there, including Carlo Emilio Gadda, Arturo Loria and Elio Vittorini (all founders of the magazine). Eugenio Montale, ''Collected Poems 1920-1954'', translated and edited by Jonathan Galassi, New York: Farrar, Strauss and Giroux, 1998, ISBN 0374125546 He wrote for almost all the important literary magazines of the time. * The improvement of oil paint and developments in oil-painting technique by Netherlandish artists such as Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden and Hugo van der Goes led to its adoption in Italy from about 1475 and had ultimately lasting effects on painting practices, worldwide. * The serendipitous (serendipity) presence within the region of Florence in the early 15th century of certain individuals of artistic genius, most notably Masaccio, Brunelleschi (Filippo Brunelleschi), Ghiberti (Lorenzo Ghiberti), Piero della Francesca, Donatello and Michelozzo formed an ethos out of which sprang the great masters of the High Renaissance, as well as supporting and encouraging many lesser artists to achieve work of extraordinary quality. Frederick Hartt, ''A History of Italian Renaissance Art'', (1970) * A similar heritage of artistic achievement occurred in Venice through the talented Bellini (Jacopo Bellini) family, their influential inlaw Mantegna (Andrea Mantegna), Giorgione, Titian and Tintoretto. Michael Baxandall, ''Painting and Experience in Fifteenth Century Italy'', (1974) Margaret Aston, ''The Fifteenth Century, the Prospect of Europe'', (1979) In Florence, the Duomo (Florence Cathedral)'s temporary façade erected for the Medici-House of Lorraine nuptials in 1588–1589, was dismantled, and the west end of the cathedral stood bare again until 1864, when a competition was held to design a new facade suitable to Arnolfo di Cambio's structure and the fine campanile next to it. This competition was won by Emilio De Fabris, and work on his polychrome design and panels of mosaic was begun in 1876 and completed in 1887, creating Neo-Gothic facade. In Indonesia, the Jakarta Cathedral was begun in 1891 and completed in 1901 by Dutch architect Antonius Dijkmans; while in the Philippines, the San Sebastian Church, designed by Arch. Genaro Palacios and Gustave Eiffel was consecrated in 1891. *Battle of Maclodio (1427) - Count of Carmagnola (Francesco Bussone da Carmagnola), for Venice, against Carlo I Malatesta, for Milan *Battle of San Romano (1432) - Niccolò da Tolentino, for Florence, against Francesco Piccinino, for Siena *Battle of Anghiari (Battle of Anghiari (1440)) (1440) - Niccolò Piccinino, for Milan, against Florence, Papal States and Venice, under Micheletto Attendolo *Battle of San Romano (1432) - Niccolò da Tolentino, for Florence, against Francesco Piccinino, for Siena *Battle of Anghiari (Battle of Anghiari (1440)) (1440) - Niccolò Piccinino, for Milan, against Florence, Papal States and Venice, under Micheletto Attendolo *Battle of Fornovo (1495) - Italian League against Charles VIII of France - FLR LIRQ Peretola Airport (Amerigo Vespucci Airport) Florence, Italy - Nottingham went on his Grand Tour from 1665 to 1668, visiting Frankfurt, Munich, Venice, Florence, Naples, Rome, and Paris. Horwitz, pp. 4-5. After he returned to England he was appointed a Fellow of the Royal Society and his cousin Sir Roger Twysden wrote to Nottingham's father that "every body speaks him a very gentleman, and one you and your lady are likely to have much comfort in". Horwitz, p. 6. Constructions such as the acclaimed Florentine (Florence) segmental arch bridge Ponte Vecchio (1345) combined sound engineering (span-to-rise ratio of over 5.3 to 1) with aesthetical appeal. The three elegant arches of the Renaissance Ponte Santa Trinita (1569) constitute the oldest elliptic arch bridge worldwide. Such low rising structures required massive abutments, which at the Venetian (Venice) Rialto bridge (Rialto Bridge) and the Fleischbrücke in Nuremberg (span-to-rise ratio 6.4:1) were founded on thousands of wooden piles, partly rammed obliquely into the grounds to counteract more effectively the lateral thrust. Roman period Soon after absorbing Etruria, Rome established the cities of Lucca, Pisa, Siena, and Florence, endowed the area with new technologies and development, and ensured peace. These developments included extensions of existing roads, introduction of aqueducts and sewers, and the construction of many buildings, both public and private. The Roman civilization in the West collapsed in the fifth century and the region was left to the Goths, and others. In the sixth century, the Longobards arrived and designated Lucca the capital of their Duchy of Tuscia. From November 1418 to 1420 he was a subdeacon at Cambrai Cathedral. In 1420 he left Cambrai again, this time going to Rimini, and possibly Pesaro, where he worked for the Malatesta (House of Malatesta) family. Although no records survive of his employment there, several compositions of his can be dated to this period; they contain references that make a residence in Italy reasonably certain. It was there that he met the composers Hugo (Hugo de Lantins) and Arnold de Lantins, who were among the musicians of the Malatesta household. In 1424 Dufay again returned to Cambrai, this time because of the illness and subsequent death of the relative with whom his mother was staying. By 1426, however, he had gone back to Italy, this time to Bologna, where he entered the service of Cardinal Louis Aleman (Louis Aleman), the papal legate. While in Bologna he became a deacon, and by 1428 he was a priest. Cardinal Aleman was driven from Bologna by the rival Canedoli family in 1428, and Dufay also left at this time, going to Rome. He became a member of the Papal Choir, serving first Pope Martin V, and then after the death of Pope Martin in 1431, Pope Eugene IV. In 1434 he was appointed ''maistre de chappelle'' in Savoy, where he served Duke Amédée VIII (Antipope Felix V); evidently he left Rome because of a crisis in the finances of the papal choir, and to escape the turbulence and uncertainty during the struggle between the papacy and the Council of Basel (Council of Florence). Yet in 1435 he was again in the service of the papal chapel, but this time it was in Florence — Pope Eugene having been driven from Rome in 1434 by the establishment of an insurrectionary republic there, sympathetic to the Council of Basel and the Conciliar movement (Conciliarism). In 1436 Dufay composed the festive motet ''Nuper rosarum flores'', one of his most famous compositions, which was sung at the consecration of the cathedral in Florence, while Eugene lived in exile in the city at the nearby church of Santa Maria Novella. Era The European Renaissance began in Tuscany (Central Italy), and centered in the cities of Florence and Siena. It later had a great impact in Venice, where the remains of ancient Greek culture (ancient Greece) were brought together, providing humanist (Humanism) scholars with new texts. The Renaissance later had a significant effect on Rome, which was ornamented with some structures in the new ''all'antico'' mode, then was largely rebuilt by humanist sixteenth-century popes. The Italian Renaissance peaked in the mid-16th century as foreign invasions plunged the region into the turmoil of the Italian Wars. However, the ideas and ideals of the Renaissance endured and even spread into the rest of Europe, setting off the Northern Renaissance, and the English Renaissance. Northern Italy and upper Central Italy were divided into a number of warring city-states (Italian city-states), the most powerful being Milan, Florence, Pisa, Siena, Genoa, Ferrara, Mantua, Verona and Venice. High Medieval Northern Italy was further divided by the long running battle for supremacy between the forces of the Papacy and of the Holy Roman Empire: each city aligned itself with one faction or the other, yet was divided internally between the two warring parties, Guelfs and Ghibellines. Warfare between the states was common, invasion from outside Italy confined to intermittent sorties of Holy Roman Emperors. Renaissance politics developed from this background. Since the 13th century, as armies became primarily composed of mercenaries, prosperous city-states could field considerable forces, despite their low populations. In the course of the 15th century, the most powerful city-states annexed their smaller neighbors. Florence took Pisa in 1406, Venice captured Padua and Verona, while the Duchy of Milan annexed a number of nearby areas including Pavia and Parma.
