on CHR (contemporary hit radio) stations across the United States and Canada. As of 2010, BDS moved CKFM to the Canadian CHR panel due to its shift in direction which now mirrors that of the current Top 40s in Canada. Astral officials indicated at the time that, if the rebranding was successful, the Virgin Radio brand would eventually be rolled out to other markets nationwide. Astral tests Virgin branding, Grant Robertson, ''The Globe and Mail'', August 26, 2008 Barely three months later, on December 4, Astral deemed the new brand a success, and announced that stations in Montreal (CJFM-FM), Ottawa (CKQB-FM), and Vancouver (CKZZ-FM) will be rebranded as Virgin Radio stations effective early January 2009. Astral press release, December 4, 2008 All three stations will retain essentially the same formats (rock at the Ottawa station, hot AC in Montreal and Vancouver). The Virgin Radio branding has since been expanded to Montreal (CJFM-FM), Vancouver (CKZZ-FM), Ottawa (CKQB-FM), Calgary (CIBK-FM), and Edmonton (CFMG-FM), the latter two stations markets having the same format as CKFM-FM. CIBK-FM adopted the Virgin branding in June 2010 (2010 in radio), but kept the top 40 format. CFMG-FM changed formats from adult contemporary to contemporary hit radio in February 2011 (2011 in radio). CKFM-FM is the only Virgin Radio station in Ontario, and the only Virgin station outside Alberta having a contemporary hit radio format. However, the Virgin Radio station in Ottawa rebranded back to their former "The Bear" moniker in February 2011. Most recently, as of 2010 (2010 in radio), the station is beginning to sound more like CHQM-FM in Vancouver, although CHQM is owned by CTVglobemedia and is also the only AC station in that market. However, CHFI's newer songs (which are tagged under the banner of "A CHFI Fresh Favourite") are more limited than CHQM since CHFI plays more classic hits than CHQM, and CHFI usually adds songs much later than most AC stations in Canada. However, Torontonians can also hear newer adult contemporary music on Hamilton's (Hamilton, Ontario) CKLH-FM (102.9 K-Lite FM), owned by Astral Media, but K-Lite tends to play more newer music than CHFI. '''CJMJ-FM''' is an adult contemporary radio station at 100.3 FM (FM radio) in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The station uses the brand name '''Majic 100''', and promotes itself as "Today's Soft Rock". It is also one of three adult contemporary outlets (other than CHQM-FM Vancouver and CFJR-FM Brockville) owned by Bell Media Radio. Even though still using the "Soft" in its slogan (like all Bell Media-owned ACs), the station has begun to lean in a more adult top 40 sound, like its sister AC outlets that lean at a much younger audience. Ottawa and Brockville, Ontario's CFJR-FM are the only market with a Bell Media AC station having other rival AC stations (the only AC station from the company, Vancouver's CHQM-FM, would be the only AC station there).

Submission Hold They were known for their unusual sound, once labeled "post-genre", which combines hardcore punk with elements of experimental and Eastern-European folk music. Submission Hold's lyrics often related to anarchist (anarchism) and feminist politics, but often with a more poetic and abstract quality than similar political bands. The band was known as Insult To Injury from 1993–1995 prior to changing their name. On December 4, 2008 (2008 in radio), Astral announced that CKQB, along with sister stations CJFM-FM in Montreal and CKZZ-FM in Vancouver, would be rebranded as a Virgin Radio station in January 2009. Astral press release, December 4, 2008 This is in addition to an existing Virgin Radio station, CKFM-FM in Toronto. CKQB will feature a "re-energized" rock format, as opposed to a hot adult contemporary format at the other Virgin Radio stations in Canada. The Toronto Virgin flipped to contemporary hit radio the following year (2009 in radio). Filming ''X-Men: The Last Stand'' began shooting in August 2005 and ended in January 2006.

After the national team the next highest level of representation in Wales is the four regions based around top club sides, but representing a larger area. These regions came into being in 2003 when the WRU elected to reduce the current top tier of Welsh professional rugby union from nine clubs into five regions modelled on the successful Irish provinces and the Super Rugby franchises in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The WRU had hoped to reduce the teams to four regions but Cardiff and Llanelli successfully argued for stand-alone status. After one year the Celtic Warriors region was closed down by David Moffett and WRU Chairman David Pickering leaving Wales with only four regions. The four surviving regional clubs are Cardiff Blues, Scarlets, Ospreys (Ospreys (rugby team)) and Newport Gwent Dragons. They play in the Magners League, European Rugby Cup (Heineken Cup) and Anglo-Welsh Cup competitions. Each region may call up players from a set of club teams within their area. These top club sides play in the 14-strong Welsh Premier Division. * The '''most remote archipelago''' is Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic Ocean, Wikipedia:New Zealand Commons:Category:New Zealand Dmoz:Regional Oceania New Zealand
