R.E.M. were an American rock band from Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry. One of the first popular alternative rock bands, R.E.M. gained early attention due to Buck's ringing, guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals. R.E.M. released their first single, "Radio Free Europe", in 1981 on the independent record label Hib-Tone. The single was followed by the "Chronic Town" EP in 1982, the band's first release on I.R.S. Records.
The letter W is not actually a native Spanish letter. The name of it in the Spanish alphabet is "uvedoble" and the few times it does appear it is pronounced in the same way as the "uve" or V – that is, as a soft B sound. All the words in Spanish containing W are imported words. For example, we have "whisky", "walkman", "walki-talki", and "windsurf" and that's about the lot! I suppose we could now add to that the commercial name "Windows" which will inevitably sound like "bindows".

Donna Leon was born in 1942 in New Jersey, although she has lived alone in Venice for over 25 years. She was a lecturer in English Literature at the University of Maryland University College in Italy and then became a Professor at the American military base of Vicenza from 1981-1999. Donna travelled all over the world teaching before she began writing and became interested in Baroque music. She set up her opera company years ago with the musicologist Alan Curtis, another American exile in Italy, to tour rare works in concert format. She eventually gave up teaching to concentrate on writing crime novels featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti.
The pronunciation of the letter V is identical to that of the letter B in modern standard Spanish. Once you have accepted this fact, it makes life a whole lot easier. People seem to worry excessively about the pronunciation of their B's and V's and I often find students staring at my mouth and pouncing on any slight variation they might detect!! Sometimes during speech the movement of one's mouth can vary slightly, but the fact of the matter remains that B's and V's are the same! They are both pronounced like a soft, lazy English B. Variations within that sound from lips being fully closed to being slightly parted are equally well understood, and you will find this variation amongst native Spanish speakers as well.

After encouraging performances in pre-season, hopes were high that Mazarron would start the new season with a home victory against a strong Jumilla team.
In front of a good crowd, Mazarron began brightly and a shot from Miguelon after 4 minutes went close. The same player then burst down the right wing before crossing to Serrano whose shot was well saved by the Jumilla keeper.

This disease is the most common disorder of the joints in small-sized animals, especially in dogs. In spite of it usually affecting dogs older than seven years old, this disease is nowadays frequent in both big and miniature-sized younger dogs, even in puppies, which is generally as a consequence of some congenital defects, like hips or elbows displasia, shoulder osteocondritis or knee dislocation, especially in those dogs where the breeders have not tried to eliminate the disease.
