Touch (also known as Touch Football or Touch Rugby) is a variant of rugby football that is organised by the Federation International Touch (FIT).
Touch is a variation of rugby league with the tackling of opposing players replaced by a touch. Touch is therefore not a contact sport but a limited-contact sport. The basic rules of touch were established in the 1960s by the South Sydney Junior Rugby League Club.
Distinctive features of touch football include the ease of learning it, minimal equipment requirements and the ability to play it without fear of major injury. While it is generally played with two teams of six on-field players, some social competitions allow different number of players per team on the field. It is played by both sexes, and in age divisions from primary school children to over-50s. The mixed version of the game (where both male and female players are on the field at the same time) is particularly popular with social players, and it is widely played in schools. There are other versions of Touch rugby that informally are organised.
is a Japanese high school baseball manga by Mitsuru Adachi. It was originally serialized in the weekly manga magazine Shōnen Sunday from 1981–1986. The manga was also adapted into a 101-episode anime TV series – which was one of the highest-rated anime television series ever, three theatrical anime movies which summarized the TV series, two anime TV specials which take place after the events in the TV series, a live-action TV drama special, and a live-action movie released in 2005. Touch was one of the winners of the 1983 Shogakukan Manga Award for shōnen or shōjo manga, along with Adachi's Miyuki.
touch is a standard Unix command-line interface program which is used to update the access date and / or modification date of a file or directory. In its default usage, it is the equivalent of creating or opening a file and saving it without any change to the file contents. Touch eliminates the unnecessary steps of opening the file, saving the file, and closing the file again. Instead it simply updates the dates associated with the file or directory. An updated access or modification date can be important for a variety of other programs such as backup utilities or the make command-line interface programming utility. Typically these types of programs are only concerned with files which have been created or modified after the program was last run. Touch can also be useful for quickly creating files for programs or scripts that require a file with a specific name to exist for successful operation of the program, but do not require the file to have any specific content.
Touch is the fifth album by American singer Laura Branigan, released in 1987 on Atlantic Records.
This album marked a change in Branigan's career. Under new management and using a different producer, the singer took a more active role in the studio, gaining hands-on experience which she used to self-produce tracks on her subsequent albums. Touch also saw her return to dancefloors with the first single, the Stock/Aitken/Waterman-produced "Shattered Glass", which was released in June 1987 and was a US top 50 hit. She had a Top 40 hit with a cover of Jennifer Rush's minor U.S. hit, " Power of Love", which was released in October 1987. "Spirit of Love" was released as a single in Europe. "Cry Wolf" was the album's third single release in the US, and was a top 30 AC hit.
Touch is the debut album by Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan, released in 1988 and then re-released in 1989.
The album was originally released in 1988 by Nettwerk. McLachlan later signed to Arista Records internationally (although remaining on Nettwerk in Canada), and a revamped version of Touch, with several remixed songs and a new track, was released in 1989 on both labels. The original 1988 release was discontinued by Nettwerk, and is now considered a collector's item. It is distinguished by its black and sepia cover. The first released single from the album was " Vox" in 1988, followed by "Steaming" in 1989.
The album was popular in alternative rock circles, but McLachlan would not achieve commercial stardom until 1991 in Canada, with Solace, and 1994 (1995 in some countries) internationally, with her 1993 album Fumbling Towards Ecstasy.
In 1993, McLachlan and Nettwerk were sued by Darryl Neudorf, a Vancouver musician and former member of 54-40, who alleged that he had made a significant and uncredited contribution to the songwriting on Touch. Although both McLachlan and Nettwerk acknowledged that Neudorf was involved in the album's production, both took the position that his contribution had not been primarily in songwriting. The judge in that suit ultimately ruled in McLachlan's favor.

Touch is an album released by Delirious? in 2002. It is essentially a clone of album Audio Lessonover? released in North America. In fact, only the first song, "Touch", is new. "Love is the Compass" and "Waiting for the Summer" are different versions from the UK release, and four songs present on Audio Lessonover were removed from Touch.
The cover for the album featured a black thermosensitive plate which would reveal a photograph of the band when it became warm (ideally, from the "touch" of a human hand).
Two versions of this album exist, a limited edition two-disc set and an 'international version' only containing disc one.
Touch is the second studio album by American R&B recording artist Amerie, released in the United States on April 26, 2005 by Columbia Records and Sony Urban Music. Following the release of her debut album, All I Have (2002), and her first acting role (in the film First Daughter), Amerie began work on her second studio album. As with All I Have, the album was co-written and produced by mentor Rich Harrison, with contributions from additional productions. Unlike her debut, Amerie co-wrote every track but one, and assumed more creative control over the visual imagery accompanying the album, such as videos and artwork.
Touch is an R&B album with a diverse musical style; a transition from Amerie's neo-soul debut. Its songs feature pulses, funky percussion, pumping energy, go-go beats with an organic core built around horns and electric pianos. Upon release Touch received generally positive reviews from music critics, who praised Amerie's vocals and Harrison's production. The album received numerous accolades including two Grammy Award nominations at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards including Best Contemporary R&B Album.
Commercially the album fared well debuting at number five on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 124,000 copies and was later certified gold by the RIAA, having sold 406,000 copies in the United States as of June 2009. The album also fared well elsewhere peaking within the top forty of the UK Albums Chart. The album spawned three singles including the lead single " 1 Thing" which became Amerie's most commercially successful song to date, which peaked at number eight, on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song was followed by the release of the less successful singles " Touch" and " Talkin' About".
The film, which has elements of drama and black comedy, stars Christopher Walken, Richard Schiff, Bridget Fonda, Skeet Ulrich, Tom Arnold, Gina Gershon, Lolita Davidovich, Janeane Garofalo and Paul Mazursky. It was shot in Fullerton, California.
The soundtrack of the movie was composed and recorded by Dave Grohl, and released on his Capitol Records imprint, Roswell Records. The majority of the tracks are instrumental, with the exception of "How Do You Do," as well as two songs performed with Louise Post of Veruca Salt. The release would also mark the first time Grohl used his pseudonym Late, as credited in the liner notes, since the release of Pocketwatch in 1992.
Touch is the twenty-third studio album by The Supremes, released in the summer of 1971 on the Motown label. It was the third and final LP under the supervision of Frank Wilson, who had been the group's main producer since 1970, when Jean Terrell joined as lead singer. The album also marked the first Motown contributions by composer-producer Leonard Caston, Jr. and writer-lyricist Kathleen Wakefield: " Nathan Jones", a hit single sung by all three members, which was later recorded by Bananarama, and "Love It Came to Me This Time".
The album included contributions by several Motown artists and staff writers: "Here Comes the Sunrise" by actor-composer Clifton Davis (who had written " Never Can Say Goodbye" for The Jackson 5); Billy Page's "Johnny Raven" (recorded by Kiki Dee in her 1970 Motown album), and "Have I Lost You" by Pam Sawyer and Gloria Jones. Wilson also recorded Jean Terrell's vocals to the backing track of a cover of Laura Nyro's "Time and Love" that Bones Howe had produced for Diana Ross, but that was shelved and remained unreleased until 2002.
The other tracks were written by Sawyer and Wilson, including the opening and closing numbers, "This Is the Story" and "It's So Hard for Me to Say Goodbye"; "Happy (Is a Bumpy Road)", released as flip side of "Nathan Jones"; and the album title track, " Touch", the first charting Supremes single to feature lead vocals by both Terrell and founding member Mary Wilson. The song missed the US top 40, peaking at #71, and it was later recorded by The Jackson 5.
After this release, producer Frank Wilson went on to work with Motown artis Eddie Kendricks. This album also contained liner notes written by Elton John, and sold over 100,000 copies in the USA.
