The size and principal
characteristics of a new ship are determined primarily
by its mission or intended service. In addition to
basic functional considerations, there are requirements
such as stability, low resistance, high propulsive efficiency,
and navigational limitations on draft or beam, all
of which influence the choice of dimensions and form.
Within these and other basic constraints, the ship’s structure
must be designed to sustain all of the loads expected
to arise in its seagoing environment.
Roman theatres were complex buildings, closer in design to
modern theatres than Greek ones. The seating was arranged in a
semicircle around the orchestra as in the Greek theatre, but the
stage and scene building were joined to the auditorium and rose
to the same height, creating a sense of enclosure more like that
of a modern theatre. This sense of enclosure was made more
emphatic by the fact that some smaller theatres or odea were
roofed and larger ones often had awnings (vela) overhead to
shade the audience.
Of this work Mr. Ruskin says in his Autobiography:—"The idea had come into my head in the summer of '37, and, I imagine, rose immediately out of my sense of the contrast between the cottages of Westmoreland and those of Italy. Anyhow, the November number of Loudon's Architectural Magazine for 1837 opens with 'Introduction to the Poetry of Architecture; or the Architecture of the Nations of Europe considered in its Association with Natural Scenery and National Character,' by Kata Phusin. I could not have put in fewer, or more inclusive words, the definition of what half my future life was...
The illustrations chosen for this issue are all from the Byzantine Romanesque work in the province of Apulia, that portion of Southern Italy familiar in school-boy memory as the heel of the boot. Writers upon architecture have found it difficult to strictly classify the buildings of this neighborhood, as in fact is the case with most of the medieval architecture of Italy, although the influences which have brought about the conditions here seen are in the main plainly evident.
The aim of CoreGRID is to strengthen and advance scientific and technological excellence in the area of Grid and Peer-to-Peer technologies in order to overcome the current fragmentation and duplication of effort in this area. To achieve this objective, the workshop brought together a critical mass of well-established researchers from a number of institutions which have all constructed an ambitious joint program of activities.
The collection of photographs from which the plates in this and the February number were selected was only recently made under the direction of Signor Boni, an official of the Italian government, charged with the care and restoration of historic monuments. The province of Apulia has been so little invaded by the march of modern improvement, and its present inhabitants are, as a rule, so poor, that it is difficult to travel here except on the line of a few main thoroughfares, and strangers seldom visit more than one or two of the principal towns on the coast. Bari...
The history of the Eternal City is permanently recorded in its many monuments and ruins. Rome has delights for anyone and everyone—art aficionados, architecture buffs, history lovers, foodies, and fashion trendsetters. This guide eases you into la dolce vita ("the sweet life") with information on:
I would like to confess that at eighteen I suddenly fell in love with
Romanesque architecture, and the passion has stayed with me forever.
Unfortunately, while the last part of this statement may be true, the
ﬁrst part, however romantic, is fundamentally distorted. The under-
graduate art-history teachers at Columbia University initiated and
nourished my interest in Romanesque architecture, and thoroughly
shaped my approach to it. I must begin a book on this subject by thank-
Mutual funds are one of the several options
that investors explore for investing surplus
funds. In a deposit-dominated market like
India it is important for mutual funds to
be able to offer differentiated risk-rewards
and gain shelf-space. With many seemingly
similar offerings from multiple mutual
funds unable to clearly communicate their
superiority, a less informed investor may find
it difficult to make a choice. This uncertainty
leads to a weakened ‘pull’ for the product.
An automatic speech recognition system for Italian language has been developed at IBM Italy Scientific Center in Rome. It is able to recognize in real time natural language sentences, composed with words from a dictionary of 6500 items, dictated by a speaker with short pauses among them. The system is speaker dependent, before using it the speaker has to perform the training stage reading a predefined text 15-20 minutes long. It runs on an architecture composed by an IBM 3090 mainframe and a PC/AT based workstation with signal processing equipments. ...
