  GAME LAWS - LoveToKnow Article on GAME LAWS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The existence of these statutes is due to the rules of the common law as to the nature of property, and the interest of the Norman sovereigns and of feudal superiors in the pleasures of sport or the chase.
They are not directly liable to the occupier for damage done to the crops by game bred on the land or frequenting it in the ordinary course of nature; but are not entitled to turn down game or rabbits on the land.
And if game or rabbits are for the purposes of sport imported or artificially raised on land, the person who breeds or brings them there is liable for the damage done to the crops of adjoining owners or occupiers (Farrer v.

 The Paper: Sports History
Sports pages — let alone entire sections of sports coverage — were decades in the future.
What little sports news that appeared in the paper was of a recreational nature, such as an 1887 baseball game between a team of married men and a squad of bachelors.
As early as 1899, sports stories were being grouped under label headlines such as “The Diamond and other sports” and “Sports of all sorts,” but the space allotted was always a column or less.

Sports history grew out of the social history movement of the 1960s that began to look at the past from 'below' by considering the histories of groups, such as women and the working class, that were usually submerged within conventional historical narratives.
Sport itself is an active agent in the world we live in and thus the relationship between sport and society is a complex two-way process.
It is primarily aimed at students who arrive at sports history from outside the discipline of history and is thus particularly useful for students embarking on their own historical research for sports studies or science courses.

As owner of the White Sox from 1900 until his death in 1931, Comiskey oversaw the building of Comiskey Park in 1910 and five American League championships.

Because the 1910 has more of a metallic feel while the V35 feels more plasticky (which is not to say the latter feels cheap!), there's an illusion that the V35 is actually lighter than the 1910.
I think the 1910's screen sports richer colors, whereas the V35's is very slightly washed out, but still much better than the display on my old Audiovox Maestro (made by Toshiba).
The battery life is also longer than the 1910; my estimate is 3.5 hours on average (playing MP3 files from a Lexar 256MB SD card with screen turned off) vs. 2-2.5 hours for the 1910.
