  • [127] Van Abbe Museum
    08/10/2018 Van Abbe Museum The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is one of the first public museums for contemporary art to be established in Europe. The museum’s collection of around 2700 works of art includes key works and archives by Lissitzky, Picasso, Kokoschka, Chagall, Beuys, McCarthy, Daniëls and Körmeling. The museum has an experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Openness, hospitality and knowledge exchange are important. We challenge ourselves and our visitors to think about art and its place in the world, covering a range of subjects, including the role of the collection as a cultural 'memory' and the museum as a public site. International collaboration and exchange have made the Van Abbemuseum a place for creative cross-fertilisation and a source of surprise, inspiration and imagination for its visitors and participants. From Van Abbe Museum website. More photos.

  • [128] Heiligdomsvaart
    08/10/2018 From June 30th up to and including July 10th 2011 the theme of the City of Maastricht will be the ‘Heiligdomsvaart’. For eleven days there will be a number of activities about the theme: ‘Towards the light’. Religious activities such as Processions, Prayer services and Relic shows, but also cultural activities such as Expositions, Music performances, Movies etc. The ‘Heiligdomsvaart’ originates from a religious relics celebration, that has been celebrated for many centuries around the tomb of Saint Servaas, the first bishop of Maastricht who died in about the year 384. Large numbers of pilgrims still visit the basilica of Saint Servaas at the Vrijthof, built over the grave of this saint. Religious Events A solemn opening ceremony at the Saint Servaas Well in Biesland and a Celebration of the mass with full ceremony in the basilica of Saint Servaas at the Vrijthof will make up the start of a religious program of eleven days. Particularly in the basilica of Saint Servaas people will daily be able during Mass, a prayer service or a religious celebration to reflect on the theme: ‘Towards the light’. Processions Tens of thousands of visitors will again be able to enjoy the great Processions on Sunday July 3rd and on Sunday July 10th. The essence of the Processions is the Relic show, in which precious relics will be carried. Cultural Events Expositions in museums in Maastricht, among others with special objects of religious and other kinds of art in the Treasury of the Basilica of Saint Servaas, but also movies, music performances and theatre shows together make up the cultural program during the ‘Heiligdomsvaart 2011’.

  • [129] Selexyz Dominicanen: a bookshop in a former church - central
    24/08/2018 Selexyz Dominicanen is the result of a merge between Maastricht’s Bergmans bookshop and the Academische Boekhandel. The name Selexyz indicates that the new bookstore also belongs to the same chain as Selexyz Donner in Rotterdam and Selexyz Broese in Utrecht, among others. One of the most attractive characteristics of Selexyz bookstores is that they (usually) offer a wide selection of books in English… and at first glance, Selexyz Dominicanen did not look disappointing at all in that department!

The name Selexyz indicates that the new bookstore also belongs to the same chain as Selexyz Donner in Rotterdam and Selexyz Broese in Utrecht, among others. One of the most attractive characteristics of Selexyz bookstores is that they (usually) offer a wide selection of books in English… and at first glance, Selexyz Dominicanen did not look disappointing at all in that department!

From the outside, the construction is noticeable because the walls are made of glass from floor to ceiling. The tension is further increased because the upper part of the tower is wider than the lower part. The façade itself consists of a double skin: an outer skin of glass and then 60 inches wide ventilated cavity and finally the inner skin of double glazing. Source: Mimoa

  • [133] De Philips Toren
    07/10/2018 De Lichttoren is een bouwwerk in de binnenstad van de Nederlandse stad Eindhoven. De lichttoren is een zevenhoekige, witte toren. Aan de Lichttoren zijn de fabrieken van Philips Lighting gebouwd. Deze werden, in delen, tussen 1909 en 1921 gebouwd. Dan verrijst ook de zevenhoekige lichttoren waar de levensduurproeven van gloeilampen plaatsvinden. Later is het hoofdkantoor van de lichtdivisie van Philips in het gebouw gevestigd. De gebouwcode, zoals bij Philips in gebruik, was ED voor het oostelijk deel (incl. de eigenlijke lichttoren) en EC voor het westelijk deel. Het gebouw is een rijksmonument. De lichttoren staat naast de Witte Dame. Tegenwoordig wordt het hele pand, naar de toren, de lichttoren genoemd. Het wordt verbouwd tot woon-, werk- en ontspanningscomplex. Vanaf augustus 2009 wordt de toren verlicht met nieuw ledlicht. Source: Wikipedia

  • [134] Château Peltzer
    07/10/2018 Historique : Les eaux pures de la Vesdre et l’absence de toute contrainte corporatiste avaient attiré de nombreux artisans dans la région de Verviers au XVIII siècle. Peu avant la Révolution française, les manufactures cédèrent progressivement la place à des fabriques plus importantes et les nouveaux capitaines d’industrie cessèrent de faire travailler à domicile les petites mains de Hodimont, Ensival, Dison ou Eupen. Aussi le gros bourg de Verviers devint-il une cité considérable ou affluaient les ouviers des campagnes. En 1810, quatre-vingt-six fabricants verviétois occupaient au moins 25.000 personnes. Parallèlement la Belgique connaissait l’essor du machinisme dont le développement n’avait d’égal dans le monde que celui des grandes agglomérations industrielles du nord de l’Angleterre. En 1785 une famille d’origine rhénane, les Peltzer, vint s’installer dans bourdonnante vallée. Avec les Simonis et les Biolley, les Peltzer furent assez rapidement les rois de la cité lainière. Leur Château de la rue Grétry s’éleva dès 1895 dans un parc valonné qui occupait une situation agréable, loin des fumées et des miasmes des quartiers laborieux. A partir de 1938, à la mort de la veuve du constructeur, ce grand édifice néo-gothique, difficile à entretenir et à chauffer connut des phases de silence et fût même inhabité dès 1971. Aussi Georges Peltzer, par souci de préserver un témoin grandiose de l’histoire de sa famille et de celle du capitalisme wallon, accepta-t-il de se débarrasser du bien en 1993.

Les origines de ce château sont anciennes. En effet, Pépin de Herstal y avait déjà élevé une villa dans la seconde moitié du VIIe siècle afin de se rapprocher de l’ermitage de Saint Hadelin à Celles. La villa fut ensuite transformée en une petite forteresse par ses différents successeurs au IXe siècle. Cette forteresse fut rasée en 1200 et reconstruite en 1220 par la famille Beaufort qui en fit un château plus puissant. Détruit par les Dinantais au XVe siècle et rétabli aussitôt, le château eut encore à subir les ravages causés en 1793 par les révolutionnaires français. Au XVIIIe siècle, la famille de Liedekerke-Beaufort restaura le château, lui donnant son aspect actuel. Source : Wikipedia

  • [146] Istanbul, Basilica Cistern
    27/09/2018 The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarayı - "Sunken Palace", or Yerebatan Sarnıcı - "Sunken Cistern"), is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Turkey. The cistern, located 500 feet (150 m) southwest of the Hagia Sophia on the historical peninsula of Sarayburnu, was built in the 6th century during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. History The name of this subterranean structure derives from a large public square on the First Hill of Constantinople, the Stoa Basilica, beneath which it was originally constructed. Before being converted to a cistern, a great Basilica stood in its place, built between the 3rd and 4th centuries during the Early Roman Age as a commercial, legal and artistic centre. The basilica was reconstructed by Ilius after a fire in 476. Ancient texts indicated that the basilica contained gardens, surrounded by a colonnade and facing the Church of Hagia Sophia According to ancient historians, Emperor Constantine built a structure that was later rebuilt and enlarged by Emperor Justinian after the Nika riots of 532, which devastated the city. Historical texts claim that 7,000 slaves were involved in the construction of the cistern. The enlarged cistern provided a water filtration system for the Great Palace of Constantinople and other buildings on the First Hill, and continued to provide water to the Topkapı Palace after the Ottoman conquest in 1453 and into modern times. In media The cistern was used as a location for the 1963 James Bond film From Russia with Love. In the film, it is referred to as being constructed by the Emperor Constantine, with no reference to Justinian. Its location is a considerable distance from the Soviet (now Russian) consulate, which is located in Beyoğlu, the "newer" European section of Istanbul, on the other side of the Golden Horn. The finale of the 2009 film The International takes place in a fantasy amalgam of the Old City, depicting the Basilica Cistern as lying beneath the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, which, in the film, is directly adjacent to the Süleymaniye Mosque. In the 2011 video game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the player controlled character, Ezio Auditore, is given the chance to explore a section of this cistern in a memory sequence entitled The Yerebatan Cistern.

  • [149] Istanbul, Topkapi palace - Imperial Council (Defterhāne)
    27/08/2018 Defterhāne This picture shows the third chamber called Defterhāne. Imperial Council The Imperial Council (Dîvân-ı Hümâyûn) building is the chamber in which the ministers of state, council ministers (Dîvân Heyeti), the Imperial Council, consisting of the Grand Vizier (Paşa Kapısı), viziers, and other leading officials of the Ottoman state, held meetings. It is also called Kubbealtı, which means "under the dome", in reference to the dome in the council main hall. It is situated in the northwestern corner of the courtyard next to the Gate of Felicity. The first Council chambers in the palace were built during the reign of Mehmed II, and the present building dates from the period of Süleyman the Magnificent by the chief architect Alseddin. It has since undergone several changes, was much damaged and restored after the Harem fire of 1665, and according to the entrance inscription it was also restored during the periods of Selim III and Mahmud II. From the 18th century onwards, the place began to lose its original importance, as state administration was gradually transferred to the Sublime Porte (Bâb-ı Âli) of the Grand Viziers. The last meeting of the Council in the palace chambers was held on Wednesday, August 30, 1876, when the cabinet (Vükela Heyeti) met to discuss the state of Murat V, who had been indisposed for some time. The council hall has multiple entrances both from inside the palace and from the courtyard. The porch consists of multiple marble and porphyry pillars, with an ornate green and white-coloured wooden ceiling decorated with gold. The floor is covered in marble. The entrances into the hall from outside are in the rococo style, with gilded grills to admit natural light. While the pillars are earlier Ottoman style, the wall paintings and decorations are from the later rococo period. Inside, the Imperial Council building consists of three adjoining main rooms. Two of the three domed chambers of this building open into the porch and the courtyard. The Divanhane, built with a wooden portico at the corner of the Divan Court (Divan Meydani) in the 15th century, was later used as the mosque of the council but was removed in 1916. There are three domed chambers: - The first chamber where the Imperial Council held its deliberations is the Kubbealtı. - The second chamber was occupied by the secretarial staff of the Imperial Divan. - In the adjacent third chamber called Defterhāne (this view) , records were kept by the head clerks. The last room also served as a document archive. On its facade are verse inscriptions, which mention the restoration work carried out in 1792 and 1819, namely under Sultan Selim III and Mahmud II. The rococo decorations on the façade and inside the Imperial Council date from this period. The main chamber Kubbealtı is, however, decorated with Ottoman Kütahya tiles. Three long sofas along the sides were the seats for the officials, with a small hearth in the middle. The small gilded ball that hangs from the ceiling represents the earth. It is placed in front of the sultan's window and symbolizes him dispensing justice to the world, as well as keeping the powers of his viziers in check. In the Imperial Council meetings, the political, administrative and religious affairs of the state and important concerns of the citizens were discussed. The Imperial Council normally met four times a week (Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) after prayer at dawn. The meetings of the Imperial Council were run according to an elaborate and strict protocol. Council members such as the Grand Vizier, viziers, chief military officials of the Muslim Judiciary (Kazaskers) of Rumelia and Anatolia, the Minister of Finance or heads of the Treasury (defterdar), the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Reis-ül-Küttab) and sometimes the Grand Müfti (Sheikh ül-İslam) met here to discuss and decide the affairs of state. Other officials who were allowed were the Nişancilar secretaries of the Imperial Council and keepers of the royal monogram (tuğra) and the officials charged with the duty of writing official memoranda (Tezkereciler), and the clerks recording the resolutions. From the window with the golden grill, the Sultan or the Valide Sultan was able to follow deliberations of the council without being noticed. The window could be reached from the imperial quarters in the adjacent Tower of Justice (Adalet Kulesi). When the sultan rapped on the grill or drew the red curtain, the Council session was terminated, and the viziers were summoned one by one to the Audience Hall (Arz Odası) to present their reports to the sultan. All the statesmen, apart from the Grand Vizier, performed their dawn prayers in the Hagia Sophia and entered the Imperial Gate according to their rank, passing through the Gate of Salutation and into the divan chamber, where they would wait for the arrival of the Grand Vizier. The Grand Vizier performed his prayers at home, and was accompanied to the palace by his own attendants. On his arrival there, he was given a ceremonial welcome, and before proceeding to the imperial divan, he would approach the Gate of Felicity and salute it as if paying his respects to the gate of the sultan's house. He entered the chamber and took his seat directly under the sultan's window and council commenced. Affairs of the state were generally discussed until noon, when the members of the Council dined in the chambers and after which petitions were heard here. All the members of Ottoman society, men and women of all creeds, were granted a hearing. An important ceremony was held to mark the first Imperial Council of each new Grand Vizier, and also to mark his presentation with the Imperial Seal (Mühr-ü Hümayûn). The most important ceremony took place every three months during the handing out of salaries (ulûfe) to the Janissaries. The reception of foreign dignitaries was normally arranged for the same day, creating an occasion to reflect the wealth and might of the state. Ambassadors were then received by the Grand Vizier in the Council chambers, where a banquet was held in their honour.

    29/08/2018 The Courtyard of the Sultan's Consorts and the Concubines (Kadın Efendiler Taşlığı / Cariye Taşlığı) was constructed at the same time as the courtyard of the eunuchs in the middle of the 16th century. It underwent restoration after the 1665 fire and is the smallest courtyard of the Harem. The porticoed courtyard is surrounded by baths (Cariye Hamamı), a laundry fountain, a laundry, dormitories, the apartments of the Sultan's chief consort and the apartments of the stewardesses (Kalfalar Dairesi). The three independent tiled apartments with fireplaces overlooking the Golden Horn were the quarters where the consorts of the Sultan lived. These constructions covered the site of the courtyard in the late 16th century. At the entrance to the quarters of the Queen Mother, wall frescoes from the late 18th century depict landscapes, reflecting the western influence. The staircase, called the "Forty Steps" (Kirkmerdiven), leads to the Hospital of the Harem (Harem Hastanesi), the dormitories of the concubines at the basement of the Harem and Harem Gardens.

  • [151] Istanbul, Rüstem Paşa Camii
    24/09/2018 The Rüstem Pasha Mosque (Turkish: ' Rüstempaşa Camii') is an Ottoman mosque located in Hasırcılar Çarşısı (Strawmat Weavers Market) in the Tahtakale neighborhood, of the Eminönü district of Istanbul, Turkey. History The Rüstem Pasha Mosque was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for Grand Vizier Damat Rüstem Pasha (husband of one of the daughters of Suleiman the Magnificent, Princess Mihrimah). Rüstem Pasha died in July 1561 and the mosque was built after his death from around 1561 until 1563. Architecture Exterior The mosque was built on a high terrace over a complex of vaulted shops, whose rents were intended to financially support the mosque complex. Narrow, twisting interior flights of steps in the corners give access to a spacious courtyard. The mosque has a double porch with five domed bays, from which projects a deep and low roof supported by a row of columns. Interior The Rüstem Pasha Mosque is famous for its large quantities of exquisite İznik tiles, set in a very wide variety of beautiful floral and geometric designs, which cover not only the façade of the porch but also the mihrab, minbar, walls, columns and on the façade of the porch outside. These tiles exhibit the early use of a tomato-red color that would become characteristic of İznik pottery. Some of the tiles, particularly those in a large panel under the portico to the left main entrance, are decorated with sage green and dark manganese purple that are characteristic of the earlier 'Damascus ware' coloring scheme. No other mosque in Istanbul makes such a lavish use of these tiles. The plan of the building is basically that of an octagon inscribed in a rectangle. The main dome rests on four semi-domes; not on the axes but in the diagonals of the building. The arches of the dome spring from four octagonal pillars— two on the north, two on the south— and from piers projecting from the east and west walls. To the north and south are galleries supported by pillars and by small marble columns between them.

    26/08/2018 The story: "The questions came crowding in me: Who was this strange music lover, amateur works of Dragan? And why did he behave so so weird?" In the village of Ardolaz somewhere in the Valais Alps, Sir Melvin Woodworth is in pursuit of a remember, the shadow of his brother Dragan, pianist in the middle of the mountains. He heards one night a melody played on the piano of the decrepit abandoned hotel. An avalanche is going to destroy the village and the population is evacuated. Alone in the abandoned village, he must understand the past to build the future. Source: COSEY, A la recherche de Peter Pan, Editions du Lombard, 1984, "histoires et légendes" The abandoned hotel The Montesano, Arveyes hotel perched on the plateau of Villars, has seen the beautiful world. Built in 1914, the property is responsible for the care of tuberculosis patients, but it soon turns into a hotel. In 1925, he spent 20 to 60 rooms. In the 60s, the hotel became famous for its theme evenings, nights like Brazilian, jazz, African ... the main lounge and bar welcome the stars but also the regional dish. The fate of this hotel goes dark in the late 90s, when it is landing in the hands of the Cantonal Bank of Vaud (BCV). It therefore passes from hand to hand, without finding an owner willing to take the huge renovation that the building needs. Gradually, the squatters invaded the stage. One night a caravan from even smoke in the parking lot. The town, for safety reasons, access is looping. "But we went there as in a mill," says an inhabitant of Villars. Disappears furniture: objects of significant size, requiring the organization. Many people are certain that organized gangs are at work. A bay window is thus carried away, like pieces of flooring. One evening in April 2008, at 3 am, the alarm is raised. The rundown is on fire. It will take just over 12 hours to ensure that the fire is under control. The property is destroyed and the population does not believe in accidents. It was demolished a few months later.

Un soir, une caravane part même en fumée, sur le parking. La commune, par souci de sécurité, fait boucler l'accès. «Mais on y entrait comme dans un moulin», raconte un habitant de Villars. Du mobilier disparait: des objets de taille conséquente, nécessitant de l'organisation. Nombreux sont ceux qui sont certains que des bandes organisées sont à l'oeuvre.

The exhibition collections refuses to privilege the public scholar, it aims instead to familiarize the visitor with prehistoric life itself rather than with the representation given by the Archaeology. The chronology is not the main theme of the course. The museum is structured according to themes of prehistoric life in order to create a genuine relationship between the daily life of the visitor and that of prehistoric man. For this purpose, the concept expographique refers to his daily life, in a participatory approach and a variety of scenic resources: interactive terminals, multimedia projections, reconstructions, facsimiles to handle, ... The cave Ramioul: The cave Ramioul is a treasure of natural heritage and archaeological Walloon. It is a listed site of the Walloon Region. Discoveries that were made and the beauty of its concretions make it unavoidable. Cave Ramioul extends to within one kilometer of the cave Engis which were discovered in 1829, the first Neanderthal fossils in the world. "Chercheurs de la Wallonie" fought for many years to preserve it, and it narrowly escaped the shots backhoe. Since its inception, Prehistoric - Museum of Prehistory in Wallonia, has made every effort to conserve, preserve and enhance this jewel stone and its biodiversity. The upper level of the cave has archaeological interest. The terrace was cleared in progressively different excavations. In October 1908, A. Vandebosch and her team of "Chercheurs de la Wallonie" discover the Neolithic ossuary of "triangular cave" that overlooks the terrace of the cave when masked by sediments. Shards of pottery, faunal remains, some stone tools and numerous body parts belonging to seven children and dated + / -2750 years BC have been unearthed. Continued excavations beneath the ossuary and the release of the entry in 1911, leading the researchers to explore the cave itself. It delivers the tools belonging to Palaeolithic industries as well as faunal remains of now extinct species (bear, lion, cave hyaena, wolf, woolly rhinoceros, mammoth). On the terrace, two archaeological layers were identified. The first was attributed to the Upper Palaeolithic to Aurigacien (+ / - 30000ans BC) and contains various tools slide and faunal remains consumed. The second oldest (+ / - 70000ans BC), contains tools and Middle Paleolithic characteristics attributed to Keilmessergruppen (Neanderthal).

  • [161] Cowpers HF6
    12/10/2018 Cowpers Un cowper moderne consiste en cylindre vertical en acier de 6 à 9 m de diamètre et s'élevant à 20 à 35 m. Cette enceinte est remplie de briques réfractaires dont la nature dépend de leur rôle : on a des briques isolantes qui protègent la face interne du blindage du cowper, et des briques stockant et restituant la chaleur. Ces dernières servent à la construction du puits de combustion, où se déploie la flamme, et du rûchage, un empilement de briques perforées qui absorbe la chaleur des fumées. Le puits est souvent intégré dans le cylindre où il occupe environ un tiers de la section du four. Les plus gros cowpers sont dotés de puits externes qui permettent de mieux isoler la zone de combustion de celle d’accumulation/restitution de chaleur. La chauffe étant plus lente que le refroidissement, chaque haut fourneau est doté de trois, parfois quatre, cowpers passant alternativement dans chaque phase. En fonctionnement continu, un cowper restitue sa chaleur pendant environ 30 min, avant que le vent soit orienté vers le cowper qui vient de finir une réchauffe de 50 min (durée à laquelle il faut ajouter les phases d'inertage et de mise en pression, qui durent 10 min). Un cowper moderne peut réchauffer environ 1,4 tonne de vent à 1 200 °C, par tonne de fonte. Lorsqu’il restitue sa chaleur, c'est donc, pour un haut fourneau produisant 6 000 t de fonte par jour, un four d'une puissance d'environ 100 MW. La chauffe est effectuée par combustion d'une partie du gaz produit par le haut fourneau, qui doit être mélangé avec un gaz riche pour atteindre les températures souhaitées. Source: Wikipedia Modern cowper consists in vertical steel cylinder 6 to 9 m and a diameter amounting to from 20 to 35 m. This enclosure is filled with refractory bricks whose nature depends on their role has insulating bricks that protect the inner face of the shield cowper, and storing and reproducing bricks heat. The latter are used in the construction of wells combustion, where the flame spreads, and rûchage, a stack of perforated bricks which absorbs heat of the fumes. The well is often integrated into the cylinder where it occupies about one third of the furnace section. The biggest feature cowpers outer wells to better isolate the combustion zone of the accumulator / heat delivery. Heating is slower than cooling, each blast furnace has three, sometimes four, stoves passing alternately in each phase. In continuous operation, cowper restores its heat for about 30 minutes before the wind is facing cowper who just finished a 50-minute heats (time at which there are the phases inerting and pressurization, lasting 10 min). Modern cowper can warm wind of about 1.4 tons to 1200 ° C, per ton of pig iron. When the heat returns, so this is for a blast furnace producing 6000 t of pig iron per day, a furnace with a capacity of approximately 100 MW. The heater is powered by combustion of part of the product through the furnace, which must be mixed with the rich gas to achieve the desired gas temperature.

The term "Minigun" has popularly come to refer to any externally powered Gatling gun of rifle caliber, though the term is sometimes used to refer to guns of similar rates of fire and configuration, regardless of power source and caliber. Specifically, minigun refers to a specific model of weapon, originally produced by General Electric. The "Mini" of the name is in comparison to designs that use a similar firing mechanism but larger shells, such as General Electric's earlier 20 mm M61 Vulcan, and "gun" referencing the delineation between a cannon, that of a caliber higher than 20 millimeters—and gun—within certain ranges.

The three electrodes and the furnace roof are raised and swung away from the furnace shell to allow the charging of scrap. The electrodes maintain the arc in accordance with the voltage and current level selected to produce the desired power input at the desired arc length for melting and refining. As the noise generated by the arcs is high during the melt-in-period, with levels up to 120 dBA, special protection is provided to the operators cabin and the furnace has a special enclosure.

    02/10/2018 The Antonov An-24 (Ukrainian: Антонов Ан-24) (NATO reporting name: Coke) is a 44-seat twin turboprop transport/passenger aircraft designed in 1957 and manufactured in the Soviet Union by the Antonov Design Bureau. Design and development First flown in 1959, over 1,000 An-24s were built and 880 are still in service worldwide, mostly in the CIS and Africa, with a total of 297 Antonov An-24 aircraft in airline service, as of May 2010. It was designed to replace the veteran piston Ilyushin Il-14 transport on short to medium haul trips, optimised for operating from rough strips and unprepared airports in remote locations. The high-wing layout protects engines and blades from debris, the power-to-weight ratio is higher than that of many comparable aircraft and the machine is rugged, requiring minimal ground support equipment. Due to its rugged airframe and good performance, the An-24 was adapted to carry out many secondary missions such as ice reconnaissance and engine/propeller test-bed, as well as further development to produce the An-26 tactical transport, An-30 photo-mapping/survey aircraft and An-32 tactical transport with more powerful engines. Various projects were envisaged such as a four jet short/medium haul airliner and various iterations of powerplant. The main production line was at the Kiev-Svyatoshino (now "Aviant") aircraft production plant which built 985, with 180 built at Ulan Ude and a further 197 An-24T tactical transport/freighters at Irkutsk. Production in the USSR was shut down by 1978. Production continues at China's Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation which makes licenced, reverse-engineered and redesigned aircraft as the Xian [Yunshuji] Y7, and its derivatives. Manufacture of the Y7, in civil form, has now been supplanted by the MA60 derivative with western engines and avionics, to improve performance and economy, and widen the export appeal.

    15/09/2018 The biplane at the front is the Antonov An-2 (Антонов Ан-2); at the right rear, lays the Antonov-12. The aircraft on the left is probably a Tupolev Tu-154. The Antonov An-2 (Russian nickname: "Annushka" or "Annie") is a single-engine biplane utility/agricultural aircraft designed in the USSR in 1946. (USAF/DoD reporting name Type 22, NATO reporting name Colt.). Combat service The An-2 was used by combat services in the Korean War[citation needed]. During the 1960s an An-2 attempting to engage South Vietnamese naval units was shot down by an F-4 Phantom II under the control of an Air Intercept Controller (AIC) on the USS Long Beach. On January 12, 1968, a clandestine TACAN site (call sign: Laos Site 85/Phou Pha Ti) installed by Special Forces (United States Army) in Northern Laos for directing USAF warplanes flying from Thailand to Vietnam was attacked by two North Vietnamese An-2s using machine guns fired from the cabin, rockets, and hand thrown grenades. A third An-2 orbited overhead. An Air America Bell UH-1B, XW-PHF, resupplying the site chased the two attacking aircraft. By using an AK-47 the American crew (Ted Moore Captain, Glen Wood kicker) succeeded in shooting down one of the An-2s while the second aircraft was forced down by combined ground and air fire and crashed into a mountain. The surviving Antonov returned to its home base, Gia Lam, near Hanoi. During the Croatian War of Independence in 1991, a few old Antonov An-2 biplanes used for crop-spraying were converted by the Croatian Air Force to drop makeshift bombs and were used in supply missions to the town of Vukovar and other besieged parts of Croatia. The chief advantage for the An-2 was that they could take off and land in small or improvised airstrips. They were also used to drop supplies by parachute on isolated garrisons. At least one was shot down on 2 December 1991 over Vinkovci, eastern Slavonia, by Serbian SAM missiles, purportedly SA-6s.

    13/10/2018 The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 (Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-21; NATO reporting name: Fishbed) is a supersonic jet fighter aircraft, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. It was popularly nicknamed "Balalaika", from the aircraft's planform-view resemblance to the Russian stringed musical instrument or ołówek (English: pencil) by Polish pilots due to the shape of its fuselage. Early versions are considered second-generation jet fighters, while later versions are considered to be third-generation jet fighters.

  • [173] Aero L-29 Delfin
    07/10/2018 The Aero L-29 Delfín (English: Dolphin, NATO reporting name: Maya) is a military jet trainer aircraft that became the standard jet trainer for the air forces of Warsaw Pact nations in the 1960s. It was Czechoslovakia's first locally designed and built jet aircraft. The Delfin served in basic, intermediate and weapons training roles. For this latter mission, they were equipped with hardpoints to carry gunpods, bombs or rockets, and thus armed, Egyptian L-29s were sent into combat against Israeli tanks during the Yom Kippur War. The L-29 was supplanted in the inventory of many of its operators by the Aero L-39 Albatros. More than 2,000 L-29s were supplied to the Soviet Air Force, acquiring the NATO reporting name "Maya." L-29's, along with the newer L-39,were used extensively in ground attack missions in the Nagorno-Karabakh War by Azeri forces. At least 14 were shot down by Armenian air-defences. As a trainer, the L-29 enabled air forces to adopt an "all-through" training on jet aircraft, replacing earlier piston-engined types. On July 16, 1975, a Czechoslovak Air Force L-29 shot down a Polish civilian biplane piloted by Dionizy Bielański that was attempting to defect to the West. On October 2, 2007, an unmodified L-29 was used for the world’s first jet flight powered solely by 100% biodiesel fuel. Pilots Carol Sugars and Douglas Rodante flew their Delphin Jet from Stead Airport, Reno, Nevada to Leesburg International Airport, Leesburg, Florida in order to promote environmentally friendly fuels in aviation. Between September 10–14, 2008, two L-29s took first and second at the Reno Air Races. Both L-29s consistently posted laps at or above 500 miles per hour. Former Astronaut Curt Brown took first in "Viper," followed by Red Bull Racer Mike Mangold in "Euroburner." Russia says it destroyed 2 Georgian L-29s during the 2008 South Ossetia war.

  • [174] Mil Mi-2 and Aero L-29 Delfin
    24/09/2018 The Mil Mi-2 (NATO reporting name Hoplite) is a small, lightly armored turbine-powered transport helicopter that could also provide close air support when armed with 57 mm rockets and a 23 mm cannon. Design and development The Mi-2 was produced exclusively in Poland, in the WSK "PZL-Świdnik" factory in Świdnik. The first production helicopter in the Soviet Union was the Mil Mi-1, modelled along the lines of the S-51 and Bristol Sycamore and flown by Mikhail Mil's bureau in September 1948. During the 1950s it became evident, and confirmed by American and French development, that helicopters could be greatly improved with turbine engines. S. P. Isotov developed the GTD-350 engine and Mil used two of these in the far superior Mi-2. The twin shaft-turbine engines used in the Mi-2 develop 40% more power than the Mi-1's piston engines, for barely half the engine weight, with the result that the payload was more than doubled. The Mi-2 fuselage was extensively altered from its predecessor, with the engines mounted overhead. However, the external dimensions remained similar. After initial development at the Mil bureau (Soviet designation V-2) the project was transferred to Poland in 1964, after the first Świdnik-built example had flown (making this the only Soviet-designed helicopter to be built solely outside the Soviet Union). PZL-Świdnik produced a total of 5,497 units, about a third for military users. The factory also developed fiberglass rotor blades, and developed the wide-body Mi-2M seating 10 passengers instead of eight. Most typical kits include four stretchers for air ambulance usage, or aerospraying or cropdusting applications. In Poland, there were also developed several specialized military variants for support or reconnaissance roles, with 23 mm autocannon, machine guns and/or two 57 mm rocket pods, four 9K11 Malyutka anti-tank missiles or Strela-2 AA missiles. Operational history The Mi-2 was first introduced into the Soviet Air Force in 1965. The Mi-2 is used by mainly former Soviet and Eastern Bloc countries, although it was also purchased by Mexico and Myanmar armed forces. Most of the armed Mi-2 variants were used by Poland. Some were also used by the former East Germany (with machine gun and unguided rocket armament only). North Korea still maintains a large active fleet of Mi-2s.

    23/09/2018 Le wildemann Le wildemann est un personnage folklorique typique de l'Allemagne centrale, associé au renouveau saisonnier. Il n'est pas exclu que cette figure folklorique soit pertinente pour Olne, mais a priori il pourrait s'agir d'une simple reproduction d'une illustration -ou d'un souvenir touristique- sans grand rapport avec l'identité d'Olne. L'important ici est de se souvenir que les entités culturelles ne sont pas des "Memes" à fondement naturaliste, mais qu'il faut les comprendre dans un système culturel local. Il serait intéressant de comprendre ce que les bonshommes de buis nous révèlent de la structure sociale. A l'exposition de Hanovre -près de la patrie du Wildemann- en 2000, le pavillon du WWF en offrait une interprétation écologique : L'Homme Vert Le "Green Man" ("feuillu" en fr.) est un autre symbole folklorique du renouveau printanier. C'est plutôt un personnage attaché aux champs et aux cultures qu'aux espaces sauvages. Il trouve de nombreuses incarnations locales qui vont de Cernunnos à Peter Pan. Et le Père Noel et Robin des Bois en sont d'autres figurations. Dans les campagnes anglaises, Jack-in-the-Green, le Roi de Mai est un personnage disposant de pouvoirs de fertilité et de régénération.

    23/09/2018 Située à proximité de la place Saint-Lambert, la collégiale Sainte-Croix fait triste figure depuis plus de 20 ans, telle un animal en cage, engoncée dans ses échafaudages rouillés et ses filets protecteurs. Mais si nous passons outre ce rapide et triste constat, nous prenons le temps de regarder et nous découvrons un lieu charmant. Par exemple, sur cette photo nous pouvons voir à gauche l'ancienne église Saint-Nicolas-aux-Mouches, ainsi que cette petite impasse empreinte de sérénité. La collégiale Sainte-Croix La collégiale Sainte-Croix, fondée et érigée entre 976 et 986 par l'évêque Notger, se situe à Liège place Verte, dans l'angle formé par la rue Sainte-Croix et la rue Haute-Sauvenière. Elle abrite la clef de Saint Hubert, autrefois dans le trésor de la Collégiale Saint-Pierre de Liège. Après la Révolution liégeoise, le chapitre de chanoines est supprimé en 1797, mais l'église est rendue au culte en 1802. Classée en 1936, elle est inscrite dans la liste du patrimoine exceptionnel de la Région wallonne. Source: Wikipedia

    29/09/2018 La rue "au Péri" permet de rejoindre la citadelle par un escalier qui débute rue Pierreuse. Cette photo est prise depuis l'entrée de la première impasse étroite à gauche en montant vers la citadelle. Historique Lorsque, aux environs de l'an mille, Notger, le premier prince-évêque de Liège, fait bâtir la première enceinte fortifiée de la ville, les pierres sont extraites de carrières ouvertes le long de l'actuelle rue Pierreuse et plus particulièrement Au Péri. Jusqu'au XIXe siècle, après être bordée de quelques habitations jusqu'au pied de l'escalier — qui n'existait pas en tant que tel auparavant — , ce n'est plus qu'une tchèråvôye (« voie pour charrettes » en wallon) de desserve pour les vignoblesnote 1 et les vergers des différents ordres religieux installés au pied des Coteaux de la Citadelle jusqu'à rejoindre cette citadelle. Avec la révolution industrielle apparue pendant la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle et surtout grâce à la réalisation de la Montagne de Bueren en 1880, la rue se couvre de petites maisons pour ouvriers.

    05/10/2018 La montagne de Bueren est un escalier de la ville de Liège reliant le quartier Féronstrée et Hors-Château au Péri et à la citadelle traversant les Coteaux. Description De la rue Hors-Château, laissant, à droite, le couvent des Ursulines et, à gauche, l'impasse des Ursulines serpenter à flanc de coteau jusqu'aux Terrasses des Minimes, les 374 marches mènent Au-Péri puis à la citadelle. La rue mesure, en totalité, 260 mètres et les escaliers 194 mètres. La pente moyenne de l'escalier est de près de 28 %. L'ascension est fort heureusement facilitée par la présence, à intervalles réguliers, de paliers, où quelques bancs permettent de regarder à l'aise la ville qui, petit à petit, se révèle. On découvre d'abord la masse grise de l'îlot Saint-Georges, la haute silhouette de la cité administrative, puis la coulée miroitante de la Meuse sous le pont des Arches. Chaque année, le 1er samedi d'octobre, lors de la Nocturne des Coteaux de la Citadelle, l'escalier, plongé dans l'obscurité, se voit éclairé par 3 000 bougies présentant au public un spectacle chatoyant. Historique Ce nouveau chemin, établi au départ de l'impasse du Thier des Begards tennant sur Hors-Château, est terminé en 1880 à la suite d'une décision prise par le conseil communal en mars 1875. Il doit permettre un accès rapide de la garnison stationnée à la citadelle vers le centre de la ville en cas d'invasion ou de soulèvement populaire et, plus prosaïquement, interdiction est faite à cette garnison d'encore passer par la rue Pierreuse où sont établis nombre d'estaminets et où œuvrent des péripatéticiennes.

    06/10/2018 The Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer Gepard ("anti-aircraft cannon tank Cheetah", better known as the Flakpanzer Gepard) is an autonomous, all-weather-capable German self-propelled anti-aircraft gun (SPAAG). It was developed in the 1960s and fielded in the 1970s, and has been upgraded several times with the latest electronics. It constituted a cornerstone of the air defence of the German Army (Bundeswehr) and a number of other NATO countries. In Germany, the Gepard was phased out in late 2010 to be replaced by "SysFla", a mobile and stationary air defence system using the LFK NG missile and the new MANTIS gun system. The mobile platform of SysFla will likely be based on the GTK Boxer. Source : Wikipedia

  • [183] Jagdpanzer Kanone Jpz 4-53
    27/09/2018 Kanonenjagdpanzer The Kanonenjagdpanzer 4 - 5 (also known as Jagdpanzer Kanone 90mm, or tank destroyer, gun) was a German Cold War tank destroyer equipped with a 90mm anti-tank gun from obsolete M47 Patton tanks. Its design was very similar to that of the World War II Jagdpanzer IV. History The first prototypes of the Kanonenjagdpanzer were built in 1960 by Hanomag and Henschel for West Germany and by MOWAG for Switzerland. Hanomag and Henschel continued to produce prototypes, until between 1966 and 1967, 770 were built for the Bundeswehr, 385 by Hanomag and 385 by Henschel. Eighty of them were delivered to Belgium from April 1975 onward. When the Soviets began deploying their T-64 and T-72 main battle tanks, the 90 mm gun wasn't capable of ensuring long-range combat and the Kanonenjagdpanzer became obsolete. Although the producers claimed it could be rearmed with a 105 mm gun, between 1983 and 1985, 163 of these tank destroyers were converted into Raketenjagdpanzer Jaguar 2 anti-tank guided missile carriers by removing the gun, adding a roof-mounted TOW missile launcher and fastening further spaced and perforated armour on the hull. Some others were refitted by removing the main gun into artillery observation vehicles, so called Beobachtungspanzer, which served most particularly in the mortar units. Some Kanonenjagdpanzer remained into service with the Heimatschutztruppe until 1990. Design The Kanonenjagdpanzer was a highly mobile vehicle, its survivability based on its mobility and its low profile. Its hull consisted of welded steel, which had a maximum thickness of only 50 mm. It carried a crew of four, a commander, driver, gunner and a loader. Since the Kanonenjagdpanzer followed the casemate design of most World War II tank destroyers, the gun was fixed within the casemate, located a little right from the center. The 90 mm gun could only traverse 15° to the sides and elevate from -8° to +15°. It carried 51 90 mm rounds for the main gun and 4000 7,62 mm rounds for the two MG3s. The Kanonenjagdpanzer had NBC protection and night-fighting ability. Source : Wikipedia In the left background, we can see a GFM cloche made by Cockerill in the year 1935. It was a fixed and non-retractable firing position made of a 20 tons thick iron casting which shielded its occupant. GFM is an acronym for Guetteur et Fusil-Mitrailleur, (lookout and rifle-machine-gunner), which describes its purpose as a lookout and firing position for light weapons.

  • [184] Armored personnel carrier M75
    24/09/2018 M75, armored personnel carrier The M75 is an American armored personnel carrier that was produced between December 1952 and February 1954, and saw service in the Korean War. It was replaced in U.S. service by the smaller, cheaper, amphibious M59. The M75s were given as military aid to Belgium, where they were used until the early 1980s. 1,729 M75s were built before production was halted. Description The M75 has a welded steel hull, which varies in thickness from 1 inch (2.5 cm) to 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) with a line of sight thickness on the front hull of between 1.6 inches (4 cm) and 2 inches (5 cm). Fully loaded, the vehicle weighed approximately 42,000 pounds (19,051 kg). The M75 has an almost identical layout to later U.S. armored personnel carriers: the driver sits in the front left of the hull, with the air-cooled six-cylinder horizontally opposed Continental AO-895-4 gasoline engine to his right. The driver is provided with an M19 infra-red night vision periscope in later models and four M17 periscopes. Behind the driver and engine, in the center of the vehicle, sits the commander, who is provided with six vision blocks around his hatch. The commander has a cupola that was normally fitted with an M2 machine gun, for which 1,800 rounds were carried in the vehicle. The infantry sat behind the commander in a large compartment. Additionally, an M20 Super Bazooka was carried along with 10 rockets, and 180 rounds of ammunition for an M1 or M2 carbine. The engine developed a maximum of around 295 horsepower (220 kW) at 2,660 rpm, giving the vehicle a top speed of 43 mph (69 km/h). The vehicle carried 150 US gallons (568 L) of gasoline, giving it a road range of around 115 miles (185 km). It has five road wheels and three return rollers on each side. Source : Wikipedia

  • [185] Kiskirálylány
    08/10/2018 The original 50 cm statuette of the Little Princess (Kiskirálylány) statue sitting on the railings of the Danube promenade in Budapest, Hungary was created by László Marton (1925-2008) Munkácsy- and Kossuth Prize-winning sculptor in 1972. The artist was inspired by his eldest daughter born from his first marriage. She often played in the Tabán wearing a princess costume and a crown made out of newspaper by her father, and at home as well, pretending her bathrobes were a mantle. This image prompted her father, the artist in the creation of this little statue. László Marton writes: " Évike born from my first marriage, at the age of 5, was playing in a little princess costume in the Tabán playground. When I saw it, I immediately had the subject matter. Titled "Little Princess" I sculpted it as well. It was placed in an elegant location on the Danube promenade. Became a symbol of Budapest." "I modeled it after my own daughter - says László Marton in his studio (2007) - she was maybe six years old and playing in the garden. She dressed as a princess: laid a bathrobe on her shoulders and put a crown on her head. I managed to capture this moment and immediately felt that this was a successful work of art. Years later, the capital requested a statue from me. I immediately thought of the "Little Princess" and luckily we managed to find the place where the statue feels good." A larger size copy of this statue was placed on the Danube promenade in 1990, and a second copy in Tapolca, the artist's hometown. A copy of the same statue stands in Japan too - donated by the artist - in front of the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space cultural center's concert hall. The original statuette (1972) is owned by Hungarian National Gallery. Source: Wikipedia The picture is very badly framed. I wished to have the statue to the left of the image and the Buda Castle on the right. This would have further expanded in the direction of the gaze of the statue, but I had to right a very large group of tourists who had decided to camp on site and jen did not have time to wait for them to leave .

It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Between 1947–48, the son of Frigyes Schulek, János Schulek, conducted the other restoration project after its near destruction during World War II. From the towers and the terrace a panoramic view exists of Danube, Margaret Island, Pest to the east and the Gellért Hill. Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896. The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths. A bronze statue of Stephen I of Hungary mounted on a horse, erected in 1906, can be seen between the Bastion and the Matthias Church. The pedestal was made by Alajos Stróbl, based on the plans of Frigyes Schulek, in Neo-Romanesque style, with episodes illustrating the King's life.

It was built between 1896 and 1908 as part of the Millennial Exhibition which celebrated the 1000 years of Hungary since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895. The castle was designed by Ignác Alpár to feature copies of several landmark buildings from different parts the Kingdom of Hungary, especially the Hunyad Castle in Transylvania (now in Romania). As the castle contains parts of buildings from various time periods, it displays different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick between 1904 and 1908. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum of Hungary, the biggest agricultural museum in Europe. The statue of Anonymus is also displayed in the castle court. Anonymus lived in the 12th century (his true identity is unknown, but he was a notary of Béla III of Hungary), who wrote the chronicle Gesta Hungarorum (Deeds of the Hungarians). The castle also contains a statue of Béla Lugosi. Source: Wikipedia

  • [200] Széchenyi thermal bath seen from the city park
    06/09/2018 Széchenyi thermal bath The Széchenyi Medicinal Bath in Budapest (IPA: [seːtʃeːɲi], Hungarian: Széchenyi-gyógyfürdő) is the largest medicinal bath in Europe. Its water is supplied by two thermal springs, their temperature is 74 °C (165 °F) and 77 °C (171 °F), respectively. Components of the thermal water include sulphate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and a significant amount of fluoride acid and metaboric acid. Medical indications are on degenerative joint illnesses, chronic and sub-acute joint inflammations, as well as orthopaedic and traumatological post-treatments. History The bath can be found in the City Park, and was built in 1913 in Neo-baroque style to the design of Győző Czigler. The construction of the bath began on 7 May 1909. Designed by architect Eugene Schmitterer, The bath, named in the news as the Artesian spa, opened on 16 June 1913. The name of bath had been Széchenyi spa. The pool construction cost approximately 3.9 million Austro-Hungarian korona. The built-up area was 6,220 square meter. The attendance of spa was in excess of 200,000 people in 1913. (This number was already 890,507 in 1919). At that time it had private baths, separate men and women steam-bath sections, and different men / women "public baths". The complex was expanded in 1927, and it still has 3 outdoor and 15 indoor pools. After its expansion, the thermal artesian well could not fulfill its purpose, so a new well was drilled. The second thermal spring was found in 1938. The depth of the thermal spring is 1256m, the temperature is 77 °C and it supplies 6.000.000 litres (1 585 032 US gallons) of hot water daily. Between 1999 and 2009 the full reformation of the Széchenyi thermal bath took place within the confines of a blanket reconstruction. Main swimming and thermal sections are possible to visit mixed. The bath was named after István Széchenyi. Units In the baths there are pools of varying temperature. The outdoor pools (swimming pool, adventure pool and thermal sitting pool) are 27- 38°C. The swimming pool's depth is 0.8 - 1.7 m. The adventure pool's depth is 0.8 m. Guests can use the water streaming, whirlpool and massaging water beamand. The indoor pools are 27°C. The complex also includes saunas and steam. Massage services are available. Source: Wikipedia

  • [203] Magyar Állami Operaház [8mm version]
    15/09/2018 Hungarian State Opera House The Hungarian State Opera House (Hungarian: Magyar Állami Operaház) is a neo-Renaissance opera house located in central Budapest, on Andrássy út. It is home to the Budapest Opera Ball, a society event dating back to 1886. Before the closure of "Népszínház" in Budapest, it was the second largest opera building in Budapest. Today it is the largest Opera building in Budapest and Hungary. History Designed by Miklós Ybl, a major figure of 19th century Hungarian architecture, the construction lasted from 1875 to 1884 and was funded by the city of Budapest and by Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary. The Hungarian Royal Opera House (as it was known then) opened to the public on the September 27, 1884. Many important artists were guests here including Gustav Mahler the composer who was director in Budapest from 1887 to 1891 and Otto Klemperer who was music director for three years from 1947 to 1950. In the 1970s the state of the building prompted the Hungarian State to order a major renovation which eventually began in 1980 and lasted till 1984. The reopening was held exactly 100 years after the original opening, on the September 27, 1984. Overview It is a richly-decorated building and is considered one of the architect's masterpieces. It was built in neo-Renaissance style, with elements of Baroque. Ornamentation includes paintings and sculptures by leading figures of Hungarian art including Bertalan Székely, Mór Than and Károly Lotz. Although in size and capacity it is not among the greatest, in beauty and the quality of acoustics the Budapest Opera House is considered to be amongst the finest opera houses in the world. The auditorium holds 1261 seats. It is horseshoe shaped and – according to measurements done in the 1970s by a group of international engineers – has the third best acoustics in Europe after La Scala in Milan and the Palais Garnier in Paris. Although many opera houses have been built since, the Budapest Opera House is still among the best in terms of the acoustics. In front of the building are statues of Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Liszt is the best known Hungarian composer. Erkel composed the Hungarian national anthem, and was the first music director of the Opera House; he was also founder of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra. Each year the season lasts from September to the end of June and besides opera performances the Opera House is home to the Hungarian National Ballet. The secondary building of the Hungarian State Opera is Erkel theatre. It is a much larger building that also hosts opera and ballet performances during the opera season. There are guided tours in the building in six languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian and Hungarian) almost every day. Features Facade: The decoration of the symmetrical façade follows a musical theme. In niches on either side of the main entrance there are figures of two of Hungary's most prominent composers, Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Both were sculpted by Alajos Stróbl. Murals: The vaulted ceiling of the foyer is covered in magnificent murals by Bertalan Székely and Mór Than. They depict the nine Muses. Foyer: The foyer, with its marble columns, gilded vaulted ceiling, murals and chandeliers, gives the State Opera House a feeling of opulence and grandeur. Main Entrance: Wrought-iron lamps illuminate the wide stone staircase and the main entrance. Main Staircase: Going to the opera was a great social occasion in the 19th century. A vast, sweeping staircase was an important element of the opera house as it allowed ladies to show off their new gowns. Interior, Hungarian State Opera House Chandelier: The mail hall is decorated with a bronze chandelier the weighs 3050 kg! It illuminates a magnificent fresco by Károly Lotz, of the Greek gods on Olympus. Central Stage: This proscenium arch stage employed the most modern technology of the time.

    23/10/2018 Hungarian Parliament Building The Hungarian Parliament Building (Hungarian: Országház, which translates to House of the Country or House of the Nation) is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest. History Budapest was united from three cities in 1873 and seven years later the diet resolved to establish a new, representative Parliament Building, expressing the sovereignty of the nation. An international competition was held, and Imre Steindl emerged as the victor; the plans of two other competitors were later also realized in the form of the Ethnographical Museum and the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, both of which face the Parliament Building. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904. (The architect of the building went blind before its completion.) About one thousand people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lb) of gold were used. After World War II the diet became single-chambered and today the government uses only a small portion of the building. During the communist regime a red star perched on the top of the dome, but was removed in 1990. Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic from the balcony facing Lajos Kossuth Square on 23 October 1989. Source: Wikipedia

  • [207] Cellulose acetate film (Sicherheitsfilm)
    13/09/2018 Cellulose acetate film, or safety film, is used in photography as a base material for photographic emulsions. It was introduced in the early 20th century by film manufacturers as a safe film base replacement for unstable and highly flammable nitrate film. Beginning with cellulose diacetate in 1909, this innovation continued with cellulose acetate propionate and cellulose acetate butyrate in the 1930s, and finally in the late 1940s, cellulose triacetate was introduced, alongside polyester bases. These less flammable substitutes for nitrate film were called safety film. The motion picture industry continued to use cellulose nitrate supports until the introduction of cellulose triacetate in 1948, which met the rigorous safety and performance standards set by the cinematographic industry. The chemical instability of cellulose nitrate material, unrecognized at the time of its introduction, has since become a major threat for film collections. Decay and the "vinegar syndrome" The first instance of cellulose triacetate degradation was reported to the Eastman Kodak Company within a decade of its introduction in 1948. The first report came from the Government of India, whose film was stored in hot, humid conditions. It was followed by further reports of degradation from collections stored in similar conditions. These observations resulted in continuing studies in the Kodak laboratories during the 1960s. Beginning in the 1980s, there was a great deal of focus upon film stability following frequent reports of cellulose triacetate degradation. This material releases acetic acid, the key ingredient in vinegar and responsible for its acidic smell. The problem became known as the "vinegar syndrome." Source: Wikipedia

    20/09/2018 Large Pendulum Wave GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2013 - 8th Edition - 'Urban Playground' From November, 9th to 16th 2013, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Artist: Ivo Schoofs Location: Stationsplein About the project: Think maths and physics are boring? The Large Pendulum Wave proves the opposite! This installation – almost seven metres high – is proof that mathematical and physical principles are able to generate superbly lyrical images. Large Pendulum Wave consists of a frame to which fifteen pendulums are attached, each culminating in an illuminated sphere. The pendulums are of different lengths, generating random patterns. Continuous waves become groups of pendulums ‘dancing’ at different tempos, which eventually descend into an apparent chaos. A little later, and the spheres suddenly seem to resume an orderly, harmonious pattern. Not only the movement of the spheres, but the colour of their light, changes with an extraordinary sequencing. Together, the movements offer a dazzling spectacle. Ivo Schoofs and his team aim to bring science closer to the general public, with installations based on familiar phenomena and that are a delight to the eye. Source: gloweindhoven

Artist: Starsky Location: Beursgebouw About the project: The Austrian artist starsky is a master of all things to do with light. She creates light installations and large-scale projections, and provides the lighting for concerts and theatre productions, often as a VJ. In her work, she integrates language, graphic elements, moving image and film. Her goal is to use these ingredients to create a true total work of art. At the Beursgebouw, her installation is a projection that blurs the boundaries between the real and the fantastic. She plays with the relationship between architecture and the environment, with people’s movements in public space, and with the proportions of the human body, using these elements to create an ‘in between’ world - The Third Element. Now and then a hand appears that brushes away the generated images or turns them as if they were a page in a book, to reveal yet another image. What arises is a journey through imaginary worlds in which, from time to time, we discover a hint of the familiar. Music made possible by Spice. Source: gloweindhoven

That, coupled with this year’s theme ‘Urban Playground’, is a great excuse to pay tribute to the football stadium by including it in the light art route. Clashlight visualises the identity of the Philips Stadium. When you think of football stadiums words like harmony, competition, power, winning, struggle and pride always come to mind. The typical sounds of the Philips Stadium are fused into a composition. We hear the cheering of supporters, the train racing by and the reverberations of a concert by Guus Meeuwis. The Philips Stadium is, moreover, the only Stadium that has its ‘roots’ in light. So, inevitably, lamps and light are the stars of this show. The result is a multidisciplinary experience that blows away the public and shakes the complex to its foundations. Source: gloweindhoven

They remain at height by using a little helium and are visible in the night due to soft colored light. The magical creatures have found a pleasant living environment in the city.

Artist: Yoav Chomsky and Nisan Gelbard Location: Clausplein About the project: Yoav Chomsky grew up in rural Israel, among orchards and wide fields. The beauty of nature never ceases to amaze him, and the continuous change that goes hand in hand with growth, decay and the cycle of the seasons. These experiences defined his work as an artist. During GLOW, he presents Zinorot, a work that premiered last year in Jerusalem. Thousands of slender light threads are attached to an ingenious construction of metal tubes. Together they form a tree that has scrabbled its way out of the earth to reach a towering six meters in height. The lights are programmed to illuminate different parts of the tree in random sequence, making the branches appear to move, reaching upward towards another part of the heavens. The changing lighting is precisely in sync with the rhythm of the accompanying music, creating a breath-taking visual display, with an ever-changing chromatic spectrum. Source: gloweindhoven

Together with Lorenzo Pompei of Laser Entertainment, a company that creates laser and multimedial shows, he has developed the GreenPower Lagoon Monster. The work was first unveiled in Venice. The first patron saint of Venice was St. Theodore of Amasea, a Byzantine warrior who, legend has it, killed a dragon that was terrorising the town of Amasea. The story can be read as a metaphor for the victory of good over evil. During GLOW, this legend is brought to life in a completely fresh, new way. The dragon appears as a terrifying sea monster, rising up out of the waters of the Eindhoven canal.

Artist: Cotzen Location: Catharinakerk About the project: St Catherine’s Church (Catharinakerk) has been a witness to life in Eindhoven for 150 years. The city and its inhabitants have felt the ravages of rain, wind, heat and lightning more than once over the years. People living in an urban environment are less aware of the weather than those who live in the country. The French collective CozTen gives us an opportunity to feel and experience the sheer power of the elements. The Eye of Time is a story about dreams and memory told through the eyes of the Catharinakerk. Every lightning flash that appears triggers a flashback that explores a season or weather condition. Different elements of narrative focus on different parts of the church. Sometimes the story is told from the viewpoint of the large rose window; next it may be told by the buttresses or pinnacles. Using projections and coloured light, various episodes of the church’s history are portrayed. A soundtrack by composer Enzo Izzi which integrates sounds of birds, thunder and wind, along with traditional and electronic fragments of music, enhances the unfolding narratives.

Artist: Jolanda Tielens Location: Oude muur de Effenaar About the project: The arched windows of this old building are covered with canvas. A reminder that behind this façade there was once a canvas factory. Seen from the street, the cloth appears to be lit with a white light, but from the rear it’s obvious that the white light is actually a composite of red, green and blue. When someone walks into the pools of light from these spotlights, their shadow dissolves into spangles of colour. You realise that you can actually paint with light on this virginal white canvas. The people on the street enjoy a shadow theatre that, thanks to the arched décor, brings to mind old-fashioned puppet theatres. The spontaneous scenes played out here couldn’t be more at home; just a stone’s throw away is De Effenaar, a pop venue. Jolanda Tielens is fascinated by the capacity of light to affect our perceptions of a space and direct our behaviour. This is precisely what the artist is exploring with her light projections. Sometimes Tielens opts for inconspicuous lighting and sometimes, such as here, light is centre stage. Source: gloweindhoven

Artist: 1024 Architecture Location: Kanaalstraat About the project: In mathematics, the tesseract is the four-dimensional version of the cube. What the square is to the cube, the cube is the tesseract. The French collective 1024 architecture uses light to bring to life this dynamic shape. Scores of projectors mounted in an open scaffold construction are able to turn in any direction. Within the cube shape, the spotlights evoke a futuristic world. The work of 1024 architecture is in fact no longer sculpture but motion itself: an ever-evolving state of shape and space of which the spectator is a part. The installation offers us a new way of seeing the urban environment and literally invests everyday reality with an extra dimension. Like the cube, all the fixed shapes are translated into a fourth dimension. And how would the world look then? Source: gloweindhoven

  • [230] Liège, le pont de Fragnée
    26/09/2018 Le pont de Fragnée est un pont de la ville de Liège traversant la Meuse au niveau de son confluent avec l'Ourthe, et au départ de la Dérivation. La partie enjambant l'Ourthe est dénommée pont de Fétinne. Le pont fut construit de 1901 à 1904 pour l'Exposition universelle de 1905, dans l'esprit du pont Alexandre-III de Paris. Histoire Le pont de Fragnée échappa au premier conflit mondial, mais il fut victime de la seconde invasion allemande. Après la guerre, on le reconstruisit en respectant les plans d'origine. Les travaux de reconstruction se terminèrent le 4 novembre 1948. On a profité de la reconstruction pour élargir le tablier du pont, portant sa largeur de 16 mètres à 17,20 mètres. Point de passage privilégié sur la Meuse, le pont de Fragnée connaît un trafic moyen journalier d'environ 30 000 véhicules. Au mois d'août 1993, on a donc entrepris la réfection de la voirie et l'enlèvement des rails de tramway. De nos jours, le pont de Fragnée a retrouvé, après de nombreux travaux et l'aménagement des abords, toute sa splendeur du début de siècle. Le trafic de transit entre le nord et le sud de la ville emprunte désormais depuis juin 2000 l'autoroute via le pont de Liège. Décoration L'architecte liégeois Paul Demany (1859-1912) fut chargé de la décoration des becs de piles, des pylônes et de leurs socles, des balcons et des murs en retour. Il dirigea également la réalisation des ouvrages en bronze coulé, éléments utilitaires (garde-corps, candélabres) et statues constituant le décor allégorique du pont, exécutées par le sculpteur wallon Victor Rousseau (1865-1954). À chacune des deux entrées du pont, deux pylônes de granit sont surmontés d'une « Renommée ». De chaque côté du fleuve, deux figures allégoriques en bronze adossées à ces pylônes. Elles symbolisent le « Vieux fleuve » et le « Nouveau fleuve ». À l'occasion de cette rénovation, les quatre Renommées de bronze ont été recouvertes d'or fin, de même que les médaillons mythologiques des garde-corps bordant le pont. Huit statues de tritons figurent sur les piédestaux surmontant les becs de pile et sur ceux ponctuant les murs en retour. Magnifiquement éclairé la nuit, le pont scintille de reflets bleutés et violets. Source: Wikipedia

    12/09/2018 Probably, Definitely, Maybe We live in an uncertain world and we deal with this by considering possibilities and probabilities; from what movies you might be interested in to what diseases you might have given your symptoms. Without realising it people interact with systems that utilise probability on a daily basis. But what is probability, how to we measure and work with it? Given the wealth of big data collected how can we use that to predict the future? What if there is noise in the data? What if the data changes over time? To answer these questions we start with the fundamentals of probability theory before looking Bayesian systems (frequently a key part of recommendation and expert systems), Markov chains (useful in predicting human behaviour), and dynamic Bayesian networks (such as Kalman filters and hidden Markov chains which are often used in real-time systems like auto-pilot navigation). Along the way we'll try to demonstrate the mathematics using simple Java/Groovy examples. No knowledge of advanced mathematics is required! Source: DEVOXX

The behaviour of the UI is an integral part of the user experience. For modern web applications, automated web tests are an essential part of your testing arsenal. But at the same time automated web testing is hard. Web tests can be fragile, and easily broken by small UI changes. They can be complex, and hard to trouble-shoot when something goes wrong. This session is a live coding demonstration using a live, real-world web site. We will be going from automated acceptance criteria using Cucumber-JVM and Thucydides to working automated acceptance tests and living documentation. You will learn: - When to write web tests, and when not to write them - Techniques to make your web tests easier to maintain and easier to update - Tips and tricks for automating modern, javascript-based web applications using Selenium 2/WebDriver.

    15/10/2018 Le serpolet (Thymus serpyllum) ou thym serpolet est un sous-arbrisseau de la famille des Lamiacées appartenant au genre Thymus. Description C'est une plante aromatique basse, d'environ 10 cm de hauteur, et s'étendant jusqu'à 50 cm de largeur ; elle est tapissante, aux tiges radicantes aux nœuds, aux très petites feuilles opposées ovales ou lancéolées, aux courtes hampes florales dressées. De juin à septembre, son feuillage aromatique vert à reflets pourprés sous le soleil disparaît littéralement sous une nuée de petites fleurs bleues groupées en capitules terminaux, plus carminés dans la variété Coccineus. Après la floraison, (juin à octobre) viennent les fruits formés de quatre petits akènes. C'est une plante des zones ensoleillées, broussailles, prés secs, rochers, dunes, jusqu'à 3 000 m d'altitude. Culture C'est une plante tapissante, au feuillage persistant qui résiste au gel jusqu'à -20 °C. Elle ne doit pas être plantée dans une terre trop riche car c'est dans les sols maigres et secs qu'elle donne le meilleur d'elle-même et répand alors des senteurs de garrigue. Quant à sa multiplication, elle se fait par division des touffes au printemps ou par bouturage estival. Propriétés médicinales Le serpolet est antiseptique et il a des propriétés anti-virales. Il est aussi stomachique, expectorant et antispasmodique. En aromate ou en infusion, c'est un désinfectant des voies digestives souvent utilisé associé au romarin et à la sauge. Il soulage les digestions difficiles. L'infusion de serpolet s'utilisait en bain de bouche en cas d'inflammation des gencives et en gargarisme en cas d'irritation de la gorge ou d'angine. Mais surtout le serpolet ou des préparations contenant les divers thyms s'utilisent en fumigation pour traiter les rhinites et les sinusites. Source : Wikipedia

    21/09/2018 ‘Bilder und Klänge erzählen Geschichten...’ Stefan Keim, culture journalist. GLOWING is an urban light and sound installation that plays with all the senses. The festival route leads through the Expeditiestraat and in doing so through an urban-industrial layout of streets. Both the special atmosphere and the architectural character of the Expeditiestraat, divided into three by the crossbeams, defines the spatial appearance of the scene. The sun, as the origin of life. Fire, as the source of warmth and culture. These two-strong emotional and associative basic principles form the conceptual approach for this production. The public become one with the entire scene in this spectacle, that stirs all the senses and provides a physical explanation of art and nature. The audience transverse a kind of tunnel, one side of which is covered with black molton, and provides a view of a fiery scene. All the walls form a kind of sea of flames. This fire has no beginning and no end, solely infinitely glowing flames, acoustically supported by music with subsonic effects. Source: www.gloweindhoven.nl

    21/09/2018 ‘Shine like the Whole Universe is Yours’ - Rumi ‘Shine like the Whole Universe is Yours’ is the name of a verse by Rumi (1207 – 1273), a Persian poet, mystic and philosopher. You can be who you are and show what you believe. The Fatih Mosque shows that you can be yourself in many different ways. Sometimes subdued and sometimes extravagant. Sometimes the interior is highlighted and the building seems smaller, and sometimes the building takes pride of place in all its glory. ‘Shine like the Whole Universe is Yours’.
