Arco de Tito / Arch of Titus - Roma - Itália
Arco de Tito / Arch of Titus - Roma - Itália
Portuguese version: O Arco de Tito e um arco triunfal, erigido em comemoracao a conquista de Jerusalem pelo imperador Tito Flavio, filho de Vespasiano. Tito comandou as legioes romanas que ocuparam a capital da Judeia em 1 de agosto de 67 d.C. Com esta ocupacao, teve inicio a destruicao do Templo de Jerusalem, que seria concluida no ano 70 d.C., acontecimento que foi considerado a realizacao de uma das profecias de Jesus Cristo. Ve-se esculpido no arco: a mesa do pao azimo, as trombetas de prata e a Menora, o candelabro de 7 bracos, simbolos do judaismo. Inteiramente em marmore, o Arco de Tito e o mais celebre de Roma. Situa-se no Forum Romano e foi construido em 81 d.C., medindo 15,4 m de altura, 13,5m de largura e 4,75 de profundidade. Nele consta a seguinte inscricao: SENATVS POPVLVSQVE·ROMANVS DIVO·TITO·DIVI·VESPASIANI·F(ILIO) VESPASIANO·AVGVSTO Isto e: "O Senado e o povo romano [dedicam] ao divino Tito Vespasiano Augusto, filho do divino Vespasiano". Os judeus, de Roma ou de qualquer lugar, nunca passaram embaixo do Arco de Tito, ate 1948, quando o Estado de Israel foi fundado. Nesta ocasiao os judeus de Roma fizeram uma grande parada e passaram embaixo do arco, comemorando a reconquista de sua terra e, claro, a sua sobrevivencia ao Imperio Romano. English version: The Arch of Titus is a 1st-century honorific arch[1] located on the Via Sacra, Rome, just to the south-east of the Roman Forum. It was constructed in c.82 AD by the Roman Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus to commemorate Titus' victories, including in the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The Arch of Titus has provided the general model for many of the triumphal arches erected since the 16th century—perhaps most famously it is the inspiration for the 1806 Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France. Colour relief of the South panel: "The Spoils of War", showing the triumphal procession The arch is situated on a prominent rise, the Velian Hill, which is a low saddle between the Palatine and Esquiline Hills, just south-east of the Roman Forum. The arch itself is 13.50 metres wide, 15.40 high, and 4.75 deep while the inner archway is 8.30 metres high and 5.36 wide. It is constructed using pentelic marble, arranged in five bays to an ABA rhythm; the side bays are perpendicular to the central axial arch with a single barrel vault. The corners are articulated with a massive order of engaged columns that stand on a high ashlar basement. The capitals are Corinthian, but with prominent volutes of the Ionic order projecting laterally above the acanthus foliage—the earliest example of the composite order, combining both designs. Above the main cornice rises a high, weighty 4.40m high attic on which is a central tablet bearing the dedicatory inscription. The entablatures break forward over the columns and the wide central arch, and the profile of the column shafts transforms to square. The minor frieze on the entablature depicts a line of both military and civil officials, along with sacrificial animals. Flanking the central arch, the side bays now each contain a shallow niche-like blind aedicular window, a discreet early 19th century restoration. There are both fluted and unfluted columns, the latter being a result of 19th century restoration. The spandrels on the upper left and right of the arch contain personifications of victory as winged women. Between the spandrels is the keystone, on which there stands a female on the East side and a male on the West side. The soffit of the axial archway is deeply coffered with a relief of the apotheosis of Titus at the center. The sculptural program also includes two panel reliefs lining the passageway within the arch. Both commemorate the joint triumph celebrated by Titus and his father Vespasian in the summer of 71. The south panel depicts the spoils taken from the Temple in Jerusalem. The Golden Candlestick or Menorah (see [Exodus 25:31-40]) is the main focus and is carved in deep relief. Other sacred objects being carried in the triumphal procession are the Silver Trumpets and the Table of Shewbread (see [Exodus 25:23-30]). These spoils were originally gilded with gold, with the background in blue. The north panel depicts Titus as triumphator attended by various genii and lictors, who carry fasces. A helmeted Amazonian, Valour, is leading the quadriga or four horsed chariot, in which there is Titus. He is being crowned with a laurel wreath by the winged Victory. This is significant because divinities and humans are presented in one scene, together, contrasting the panels of the Ara Pacis where they are separated. The sculpture of the outer faces of the two great piers was lost when the Arch of Titus was incorporated in medieval defensive walls. The attic of the arch was originally crowned by more statuary, perhaps of a gilded chariot. The main inscription used to be ornamented by letters made of silver or perhaps gold or some other metal.

Percy R. Pyne House, 680 Park Avenue, Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States. This house is a part of that outstanding group of neo-Federal townhouses which extends along the west side of Park Avenue, between East 68th and 69th Streets, sometimes referred to as the "Pyne-Davison Blockfront" due to the uniform architectural quality of these houses. No. 680 Park Avenue, formerly the handsome townhouse of Percy Rivington Pyne, occupies a conspicuous site at the northwest corner of East 68th Street and Park Avenue. It was designed In the neo-Federal style by the architectural firm of McKim, Moad & White, and built in 1909-11. Percy Pyne was a Mew York financier and philanthropist; he resided here until his death in 1929. The house was sold in 1947 to the Chinese Delegation to the United Nations which in turn sold it to the Soviet Mission to the United Nations. In May 1964, the Soviet Mission moved to larger quarters and sold the building to a developer who began the following January to demolish it and two adjacent- townhouses to make way for a 31-story apartment building. When this became known, and after interior demolition had proceeded for ten days, there was widespread public protest against the loss of the last remaining block on Park Avenue of uninterrupted townhouses of uniformly high architectural quality. At this critical juncture, the Marquesa de Cuevas, a granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller, Sr., in a magnanimous gesture, later cited by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, purchased the three almost doomed houses for $2,000;000, and on January 4, 1966 presented 680 Park Avenue to the Center for Inter-American Relations, which occupies It today. The demolition contractor had not had time to damage the exteriors, but it took eighteen months before the uprooted floors and missing items, such as fireplaces, were replaced and refurbished and the interiors made ready for occupancy. The mansion has four windows along Park Avenue, and seven along East 68th Street. The first story is faced with rusticated limestone interrupted by square-headed double-hung windows, and the red brickwork, above the first story, is set in Flemish bond. The main entrance, also facing Park Avenue, has a particularly handsome porch with a beautifully carved entablature supported by a pair of fluted Ionic columns. The roof of this porch is surmounted by a well designed wrought iron railing forming a balcony, access to which is achieved through a large double-hung window at the second floor. It was from this balcony that Soviet Premier Khrushchev harangued the press on September 21, I960. A high wrought iron railing encloses the areaways on either side of the porch. The square-headed second floor windows are set in shallow blind-arched bays crowned with console-type keystones. To emphasize the porch and the entrance below it, the wall inside the arched bay over the entrance, unlike the others, Is faced with limestone instead of brick. All the windows have double-hung sash; those at the second floor are capped by splayed limestone lintels; on the third floor they have molded limestone enframements crowned by delicate projecting cornices resting on consoles. The central window on the third floor of the street side facade is emphasized by a segmentaI-arched broken pediment and there are rectangular stone panels set in above the flanking second floor windows below it. A limestone belt course runs around the entire facade at the fourth floor window sill level. A projecting limestone cornice supports a parapet with a balustered section above each window. Behind this rises a steep gambrel roof covered with slate. Pedimented dormer windows provide light and air to the fifth floor attic. - From the 1970 NYCLPC Landmark Designation Report

Windows 2000 Pro: The Missing Manual
Windows 2000 Pro combines the friendly interface of Windows 98 with the famous stability of Windows NT. Windows 2000, the successor to NT, introduces many technologies that weren't available in NT, including Plug-and-Play, support for USB devices, power management features, and more. It's 25% faster than Windows 98 and three times as stable. Unfortunately, despite all the enhancements, Microsoft forgot to address one of NT's most glaring omissions: Windows 2000 doesn't include a printed user's manual.
In Windows 2000 Pro: The Missing Manual, bestselling Windows NT author Sharon Crawford provides the ideal (and desperately needed) user's guide for the world's most popular corporate operating system. The book covers:
Getting started. The early chapters cover using menus, finding lost files, reducing window clutter, and taming the wild Start menu.
What's what. A complete guide, this book explains the purpose of every Control Panel item, accessory program, and maintenance tool.
Mastering the network. Special chapters help you navigate the corporate network, dial in from the road, and even set up your own small-office (peer-to-peer) network, step by step.
Understanding security. User accounts, file encryption, and the NTFS file system keep your private files private, while still offering network access to coworkers you specify.
Flying the Net. This book demystifies the rich Internet suite of Windows 2000 Pro: its email, newsgroup, Web-browsing, and video conferencing programs.
Windows 2000 Pro: The Missing Manual isn't for system administrators or OS theory geeks; it's for the novice or budding power user who wants to master the machine and get down to work. Windows 2000 Pro: The Missing Manual is the crystal-clear, jargon-free book that should have been in the box.

Promising to help its readers master the corporate PC, Windows 2000 Pro: The Missing Manual explains Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional (the OS that's meant to replace Microsoft Windows NT Workstation) to the people who use it. Author Sharon Crawford does a fine job of showing how to get Windows 2000 Professional to do what you want, and with the best performance possible. Buy and enjoy this book, if you want to understand your work computer as well as you know your home computer, or if you just want an easy-to-read reference to help you figure out new Windows challenges as they pop up.
Like most of its Pogue Press littermates, this book distinguishes itself by the way in which it deals with its subject software's deviations from common sense. In a model sidebar, Crawford explains why the Permissions window allows you to set both "Deny" and "Allow" permissions on a resource. She aptly explains why not allowing access isn't the same as denying access, and similarly focuses light on other confusing details of Windows 2000 Professional. This approach to software and its quirks is what makes this book different from the (many) other "How to Use Windows 2000 Professional" books that are on the market. Let's hope that Pogue Press continues to steer its writers away from ponderous documentation whose structure is dictated by menu contents. Books like this are fresh air, in a genre that invites drudgery. --David Wall
Topics covered: Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional for the people who use it. Beginning with the barest of essentials (logging on and starting programs), this book proceeds through local area network (LAN) and Internet connectivity, hardware administration, and security. Mostly, this is an introductory text, but it covers the OS thoroughly at the user--as opposed to administrator or programmer--level.
