Late Antique and medieval mosaics in Italy

Late Antique and medieval mosaics in Italy

Basilica of San Vitale, Ravenna, 548 Italy has the richest concentration of Late Antique and medieval mosaics in the world. Although the technique is especially associated with Byzantine art, and many Italian mosaics were probably made by imported Greek-speaking artists and craftsmen, the numbers of significant mosaics remaining in the core Byzantine territories are surprisingly few. This is especially true for the centuries before the Byzantine Iconoclasm of the 8th century.[1] Late Antique mosaics The Great Hunt; floor from the villa at Piazza Armerina, Sicily ca. 320. Figures are about life-size. The story of Jonah, floor mosaic in Aquileia Cathedral, 314-318. Jonah is about life-size Santa Costanza ceiling detail, 324-6 Santa Pudenziana apse mosaic, 384-9 "Early Roman mosaics belonged to the floor";[2] except in Nero's Domus Aurea,[3] there is little evidence of ambitious wall mosaics before the Christian period, even at Pompeii and surrounding sites, where their chances of survival were ...more...

Ancient Egyptian units of measurement

Ancient Egyptian units of measurement

The ancient Egyptian units of measurement are those used by the dynasties of ancient Egypt prior to its incorporation in the Roman Empire and general adoption of Roman, Greek, and Byzantine units of measurement. The units of length seem to have originally been anthropic, based on various parts of the human body, although these were standardized using cubit rods, strands of rope, and official measures maintained at some temples. Following Alexander the Great's conquest of Persia and subsequent death, his bodyguard and successor Ptolemy assumed control in Egypt, partially reforming its measurements, introducing some new units and hellenized names for others. Length Egyptian Circle Egyptian units of length are attested from the Early Dynastic Period, when the Palermo stone recorded the level of the Nile River. During the reign of Pharaoh Djer, the height of the Nile was recorded as 6 cubits and 1 palm (about 3.217 m or 10 ft 6.7 in).[1] A 3rd-dynasty diagram shows how to construct an elliptical vault using ...more...

Swimming at the 1972 Summer Olympics – Women's 4 × 100 metre medley relay

The women's 4×100 metre medley relay event at the 1972 Olympic Games took place on September 3.[1] This swimming event uses medley swimming as a relay. Because an Olympic size swimming pool is 50 metres long, each of the four swimmers completed two lengths of the pool, each using a different stroke. The first on each team used the backstroke, the second used the breaststroke, the third used the butterfly stroke, and the final swimmer used freestyle (restricted to not allow any of the first three strokes to be used, though nearly all swimmers use front crawl regardless). The first swimmer must touch the wall before the next can leave the starting block, and so forth; timing of the starts is thus important.

Foreskin piercing

Foreskin piercing is a piercing that passes through the foreskin of the penis. It is the male equivalent of a clitoral hood piercing in females. It is a generally fast-healing piercing and involves a relatively simple procedure. The only true requirement is the male must have not been circumcised (or at least have sufficient foreskin left from his circumcision). Foreskin piercings have been used for male infibulation. History Reference to foreskin piercing has been found in ancient writings dating as far back as the first century.[1] Kuno piercing A specific type of foreskin piercing that is done under the foreskin end under the glans is referred to as a kuno piercing.[2] Its name is supposedly derived from kynodesme.[3] See also Fibula (penile) References https://books.google.se/books?id=kSOtrhnzHh0C&pg=PA5&dq=Foreskin+piercing&hl=sv&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiQic3F6_bXAhWmJZoKHS27C8sQ6AEIPzAD#v=onepage&q=Foreskin%20piercing&f=false Kuno Piercing History of Body Mo ...more...

Samudragupta

Samudragupta (r. c. 335/350-375 CE) was a ruler of the Gupta Empire of North India. A son of the Gupta emperor Chandragupta I and the Licchavi princess Kumaradevi, he greatly expanded his dynasty's political power. The Allahabad Pillar inscription, a prashasti (eulogy) composed by his courtier Harishena, credits him with extensive military conquests. It suggests that he defeated several kings of northern India, and annexed their territories to his empire. He also marched along the south-eastern coast of India, advancing as far as the Pallava kingdom. In addition, he subjugated several frontier kingdoms and tribal oligarchies. His empire extended from Ravi River in the west to the Brahmaputra River in the east, and from the Himalayan foothills in the north to central India in the south-west; several rulers along the south-eastern coast were his tributaries. Samudragupta performed the Ashvamedha sacrifice to prove his imperial sovereignty, and according to his coins, remained undefeated. His gold coins and in ...more...

Extensor retinaculum of the hand

The extensor retinaculum (dorsal carpal ligament, or posterior annular ligament) is an anatomical term for the thickened part of the antebrachial fascia that holds the tendons of the extensor muscles in place. It is located on the back of the forearm, just proximal to the hand. It is continuous with the palmar carpal ligament, which is located on the anterior side of the forearm. It is a strong, fibrous band, extending obliquely downward and medialward across the back of the wrist, and consisting of part of the deep fascia of the back of the forearm, strengthened by the addition of some transverse fibers. The extensor retinaculum is attached laterally to the lateral margin of the radius. However, it is not attached to the ulna, as the distance between these two bones varies with supination and pronation of the forearm. Instead the medial attachment is to the most medial of the carpal bones, the triquetrum (or triquetral bone) and pisiformis (or pisiform bone). The retinaculum is also attached in its passage ...more...

Tuberoinfundibular pathway

topic

Tuberoinfundibular pathway

Tuberoinfundibular pathway shown in opaque blue, connecting that hypothalamus with the pituitary gland. The tuberoinfundibular pathway refers to a population of dopamine neurons that project from the arcuate nucleus (a.k.a. the "infundibular nucleus") in the tuberal region of the hypothalamus to the median eminence.[1] It is one of the four major dopamine pathways in the brain. Dopamine released at this site regulates the secretion of prolactin from the anterior pituitary gland. Some antipsychotic drugs block dopamine in the tuberoinfundibular pathway, which can cause an increase in blood prolactin levels (hyperprolactinemia). This can cause abnormal lactation (even in men), disruptions to the menstrual cycle in women, visual problems, headache and sexual dysfunction. Other dopamine pathways Other major dopamine pathways include: Mesocortical pathway Mesolimbic pathway Nigrostriatal pathway See also Antipsychotic Dopamine References Malenka RC, Nestler EJ, Hyman SE (2009).

Thirty-two forms of Ganesha

Thirty-two forms of Ganesha are mentioned frequently in devotional literature related to the Hindu god Ganesha (Ganapati).[1][2][3] The Ganesha-centric scripture Mudgala Purana is the first to list them.[4] Detailed descriptions are included in the Shivanidhi portion of the 19th-century Kannada Sritattvanidhi. There are also sculptural representations of these thirty-two forms in the temples at Nanjangud and Chāmarājanagar (both in Mysore district, Karnataka), done about the same time as the paintings were done and also at the direction of the same monarch.[5] Each of the thirty-two illustrations is accompanied by a short Sanskrit meditation verse (dhyānaśloka), written in Kannada script. The meditation verses list the attributes of each form. The text says that these meditation forms are from the Mudgala Purana. In his review of how the iconographic forms of Ganapati shown in the Sritattvanidhi compare with those known from other sources, Martin-Dubost notes that the Sritattvanidhi is a recent text from So ...more...

The Macedonian alphabet was standardized in 1945 by a committee formed in Yugoslav Macedonia after the Communist Partisans took power at the end of World War II. The alphabet used the same phonemic principles employed by Vuk Karadžić (1787–1864) and Krste Misirkov (1874–1926).
