In 1997, the station was acquired by Shaw Communications. Following the change in ownership, Energy's format shifted from dance music to mainstream CHR (contemporary hit radio). Dance, rap, hip-hop, rock, and pop all received equal airplay. A minor name change also took place, with '''Energy 108''' changing to '''Energy Radio'''. Under Shaw's ownership, several other stations in Ontario, including CKDK (CKDK-FM) in Woodstock (Woodstock, Ontario), CHAY (CHAY-FM) in Barrie (Barrie, Ontario) and CKGE (CKGE-FM) in Oshawa (Oshawa, Ontario), also adopted the '''Energy Radio''' format, rebroadcasting CING much of the day. Shaw's radio operations were, in turn, spun off to Corus Entertainment in 1999. Some have also suggested that a non-profit community radio station would have been a more appropriate way to serve LGBT audiences, and that as a low-power signal many people who live away from the Church and Wellesley area may not even be able to receive the station at all. In fact, some listeners have noted that even in the Church and Wellesley Village itself, the station's signal sometimes gets drowned out by CBL-FM's rebroadcaster in Peterborough (Peterborough, Ontario) or by CKDK-FM from Woodstock (Woodstock, Ontario).

of 5,000, but played a relatively small role during the 1980–1988 Iran–Iraq War. Career Fitch's place of birth has long been a mystery but recent research indicates that he was most likely born in All Saints' parish, Derby. The Leathersellers' Review, 2007-08, pp 16-18: "An Elizabethan in Asia: Ralph Fitch, our most adventurous Leatherseller" by Jerome Farrell The first known documentary reference to him is in the archives of the Worshipful Company of Leathersellers, of which he was a Freeman and from which Company he received a loan of £50 for two years, 1575-77. The Leathersellers' Review, 2007-08, pp 16-18: "An Elizabethan in Asia: Ralph Fitch, our most adventurous Leatherseller" by Jerome Farrell In February 1583 he embarked in the ''Tyger'' for Tripoli and Aleppo in Syria, together with merchants John Newberry and John Eldred, a jeweller named William Leedes and a painter, James Story, all financed by the Levant Company. This was the latest in a series of English attempts to penetrate the trade of the Indian Ocean and Far East, going back to Anthony Jenkinson's travels in Central Asia in the 1550s. From Aleppo they reached the Euphrates, descended the river from Bir (Birecik) to Fallujah, crossed southern Mesopotamia to Baghdad, and dropped down the Tigris to Basra (May to July 1583). Here Eldred stayed behind to trade, while Fitch and the others sailed down the Persian Gulf to the Portuguese fortress and trading station at Ormuz, where they were promptly arrested as spies (at Venetian instigation, as they believed, but the Portuguese were always jealous of their commercial monopoly in the Indian Ocean) and sent as prisoners to the Portuguese viceroy at Goa (September to October). Interwar years and World War II After the war, ''Ark Royal'' transported aircraft across the Black Sea to Batumi, where they were ferried across the Caucasus to the British naval forces supporting White Russian forces fighting the Bolsheviks in the Caspian Sea during the Russian Civil War. The ship was withdrawn from the Black Sea in late 1919 and disembarked her seaplanes at Malta to load a dozen de Havilland DH-9 bombers and 181 personnel of 'Z' Squadron, Egypt for transport to British Somaliland. The ship arrived in Berbera on 30 December and the squadron was unloaded to support the air and land campaign (1920 conflict between British forces and Somaliland dervishes) against the Mad Mullah. ''Ark Royal'' served during this campaign solely as a depot and repair ship for the RAF. She was withdrawn before its conclusion and transferred to the Black Sea to support the White Russian forces there as they began to collapse. The ship twice ferried refugees from the Caucasian coast to the Crimea and, after the second voyage, had to be fumigated at Constantinople after an outbreak of typhus among her passengers. During the summer of 1920, ''Ark Royal'' ferried RAF aircraft and personnel to Basra. She then returned to Britain for a refit and was put into reserve at Rosyth in November. Layman 1976, p. 103 The Baath regime also seemed to have made progress since the late 1960s in reducing regional disparities, although they were far from eliminated and no doubt were more severe than statistics would suggest. Baghdad, for example, was the home of most educational facilities above the secondary level, since it was the site not only of Baghdad University, which in the academic year 1983-84 (the most recent year for which statistics were available in early 1988) had 34,555 students, but also of the Foundation of Technical Institutes with 34,277 students, Mustansiriya University with 11,686 students, and the University of Technology with 7,384 students. The universities in Basra, Mosul and Arbil, taken together, enrolled 26 percent of all students in higher education in the academic year 1983-84. ;Mu'tazili Mu'tazili theology originated in the 8th century in al-Basrah (Basra) when Wasil ibn Ata left the teaching lessons of Hasan al-Basri after a theological dispute. He and his followers expanded on the logic and rationalism of Greek philosophy, seeking to combine them with Islamic doctrines and show that the two were inherently compatible. The Mu'tazili debated philosophical questions such as whether the Qur'an was created or eternal, whether evil was created by God, the issue of predestination (Predestination in Islam) versus free will (Free will in theology#In Islamic thought), whether God's attributes in the Qur'an were to be interpreted allegorically or literally, and whether sinning believers would have eternal punishment in hell. Life Abu al-Husayn Ahmad bin Yahya ben Isaac al-Rawandi was born in راوند Rawand :fa:راوند in Kashan, today located in Central Iran or some say in Marv-rud in Greater Khorasan, today located in northwest Afghanistan, about the year 815 CE. - Loghatnaame By Allame Dehkhoda Medieval Islamic Civilization By Josef W. Meri, Jere L. Bacharach According to the Egyptian scholar Abdur Rahman Badawi, Al-Rawandi was born in Basra at the times of the Abbassid Caliph Al-Mamoun. Min Tareekh Al-Ilhad Fi Al-Islam, From the History of Atheism in Islam by Abd-El Rahman Badawi pages: 87-206, Second edition 1991, Sinaa Lil Nasher Egypt (Arabic) His father, Yahya, was a Jewish scholar and convert to Islam, who schooled Muslims in how to refute the Talmud. Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy: Genealogy to Iqbal Page 636 Al-Rawandi abandoned Islam for atheism and used his knowledge of Islam, learned from his father, to refute the Quran. Al-Rawandi is reviled by Jews, Muslims and Christians as a result of polemics he authored against all religions. Vincent returned to Iraq in April 2005, this time to the south, basing himself in Basra as the only Western journalist in the region. Initially he pursued stories such as the reconstruction of the marshlands drained by Saddam Hussein, but in the process of meeting and speaking to locals on all levels, from people in the street to government officials, he uncovered and began investigating reports of Iran's growing logistical and financial support for the local insurgency and the unchecked movement over the border of Iranian agents, drug smuggling to support the area's militias, the killing of Basra's Christian populace, increasing corruption and violence in the local police force and the inexplicable unwillingness of the British forces stationed there to address such dangerous issues. Unfounded controversy arose during and after the ground war over the pace at which VII Corps advanced. On the second day of the ground war General Norman Schwarzkopf publicly expressed frustration over what he characterized as VII Corps' slow pace, allowing elements of the Republican Guard to escape destruction by fleeing toward Basra. Schwarzkopf said that "The window of opportunity is rapidly slamming shut." Certain Victory , the official Army summary on the war, said, "By the 28th (of February, the third day of the ground war), with the exception of the Hammurabi Division, the majority of the remaining Guard armor had already reached or passed through the Basra sanctuary en route to positions well inside Iraq." However, the "remaining" armor were actually remnants of RGFC divisions which had been decimated by VII Corps in their 89 hour engagement of Iraqi forces. Critically, at 2100 hours on February 27, without warning, the CINC (Gen. Schwarzkoph) had indicated there would be a cease fire the next day (without consulting Gen. Franks, and in spite of Gen. Franks assertion through channels that he needed one more day to complete the job). He first ordered a 0500 hours halt to combat actions,which effectively stopped the advance of VII Corps units; but inexplicably he later extended it to 0800 hours. Had VII Corps known they had a full ten hours to execute, rather than the seven hours they had originally been given, very different objectives could have been realized. More importantly, the CINC had extended the FSCL so far north and east that air interdiction of retreating Iraqi troops was impossible. Another point that should be made is that the VII Corps was ordered to commence ground operations fifteen hours early (without warning) which created last minute maneuver and logistic problems effectively impacting and slowing the initial breach. Many of the orders issued by Gen.Schwarzkopf appeared ill-advised and were given without consulting the primary commanders on the ground. When the ceasefire was implemented, only then did Gen.Schwarzkopf personally contact Gen. Franks, and instead of congratulating him for the VII Corps incredible success (one of, if not THE largest, fastest, most successful armor maneuvers in history) he wanted to know why a particular highway hadn't been "seized" as he had ordered. In fact the "written" order came hours after the verbal order which Gen. Franks had interpreted and implemented. Gen.Schwarzkoph seemed determined to take credit for the coalition success himself, while downplaying the efforts of the Corps Commander responsible for actually leading the primary attack. But it should be noted that never once during the ground phase of Operation Desert Storm, did Gen.Schwarzkoph order changes to the battle plan and never once during the ground phase did he communicate directly with his primary field commander. The accomplishments of VII Corps in Desert Storm are among the all-time great accomplishments of armor warfare. Gen. Schwarzkoph made statements during press conferences that hadn't been validated on the field by his commanders and then attempted to deflect responsibility and blame them when the facts didn't quite fit the statements made to news media. It should also be noted that Gen. Franks made it very clear from the onset of the ground phase that he needed one more day - but this window was denied. Filtered by the prism of hindsight, Gen. Schwarzkoph was the wrong man, at the wrong time for th-e job. Franks tells the story in his own words in the book, written with Tom Clancy, ''Into the Storm - On the Ground in Iraq'', which contradicts some arguments made by Schwarzkopf in his own autobiography ''It Doesn't Take a Hero''.
