1000 And One Night Of Puppets

Remember the song Makarevich? "Rabbits, tigers, wolves in a cage, they are all puppets in the hands of skilful and overworked" In Russia, from puppets largely remained just that song. Russian parsley is very few people interested, but on Sicily this old pastime has now become a kind of cult. Of course, ideas are already much smaller – Sicilian "petrushek" survived television and video games, but on those rare evenings when held view – in the theater going to the city The main leitmotif of all productions – is fighting the Saracen knight in shining armor with a sneaky Arabs. Nothing strange in this, because it is the Normans in the xi century drove the Arabs from the island, which at that time ruled the island neither more nor less than 200 years. Of the puppets are doing these knights – all the helmets, shields and armor always get off manually, and the medieval kings and their great surprise the couple crowned the beauty of a truly royal dresses. And as in Russia was the main favorite parsley, then in Sicily was a favorite hero of the narrative – the embodiment of generosity, selflessness and honor – Paladins have always differed and loyalty incredible courage. Certainly for the people who almost never pokladal sword because of the numerous rebellions against the invaders, became a hero at once the most beloved. Sicilians could not fail to inspire adventures of these romantic heroes. And so it appeared that most on there is a folk tradition, based on a poem written by Ariosto – 'Roland Furious' – it's incredibly long poem – 39,000 verses dedicated Palladino, telling about his life. Since the 39,000 verses can not be reduced to 10, the enterprising Sicilian puppeteers have made him a real series, which worked on the principle of "1000 and one nights", ie, every night during the year puppet show, every night presentation broke off in mid-sentence, and from that moment begins the next evening and the next day, Hall was again filled – the audience was anxious to see what will happen next All soap opera, or rather 'Opera dei Pupi lasted exactly 394 days. The audience, not breathing, with a sinking heart followed by 12 knights of Charlemagne, who valiantly fought against the Moors, witches and monsters, fall in love with the beautiful ladies, defended the weak and needy sometimes passions reached such an extent that some viewers literally jumped on stage to help the beloved hero.

Unlike the DSL and VDSL providers there is no bandwidth or capacity bottlenecks at Kabel BW. Because the modernized cable always the full bandwidth available for TV, Internet and telephone. And everywhere not only in urban areas.

Intensity

The exercise is based on muscle activity, which is determined by the consumption of oxygen and energy expenditure. The more energy expenditure and oxygen consumption requires a physical activity, the more intense this may be considered. Obviously, it’s not the same give a comfortable ride through the park to run a marathon.To measure the intensity of an exercise we take for reference the maximum aerobic capacity or maximum volume of oxygen (VO2), which would be the maximum amount of oxygen that is capable of using our body to conduct an intense physical exercise. There are two key factors that determine the amount of oxygen used for our tissues: the amount of air that can get our lungs and the speed at which this comes to fabrics, ie the rate at which the heart beats. So, when the lungs have a maximum amount of air that can be taken from the atmosphere, the amount of oxygen coming really determined by the variation in heart rate. A more heart rate reaches more oxygen to tissues, and therefore will be the largest volume of oxygen. The heart rate is a parameter easy to determine, because just taking the pulse. So, we can substitute for the VO2 max heart rate (FCM), which would be the maximum limit to which we should be beating heart before the physical realization of an effort to stay within safety limits. The FCM is very easy to calculate. Suffice it to detract from the age of 220 years. Example: a person of fifty years will be as FCM of 220-50 = 170.The intensity of an exercise could be classified as follows:In people with diabetes the type of exercise recommended for moderate to serious, that is, between 60% and 80% of the FCM, starting with lower values and rising gradually as the subject is going to have practiced in the exercise. To calculate it we see an example:Diabetic for 50 years with 70 pulses at rest:220-50 = 170and # 160;; In this result it left the pulsations at rest: 170 -70 = 100.60% would be 100 x 0.60 = 60 This result is that we have the margin of increase in heart rate. As the frequency at rest was 70, then 70 60 = 130, which would limit the pulse.The limit for this guy to do physical exercise would be 130 beats per minute, should not exceed this heart rate low risk of complications arising from the exercise. When the subject already has the habit of getting exercise, you can upload up to 80%, to give a limit of 80 70 = 150 beats per minute. The diabetic can have alteration of the nerves that depend on the autonomic nervous system, responsible among other things set the pace at which the heart beats. To avoid complications arising from this fact, it is advisable to start with the physical exercise levels even under the FCM, about 40%, and go climbing gradually to reach the minimum 60% limit at which the physical activity begins to be really effective. In the previous example, would be 110 beats per minute. The intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register McMECHEN – Andrew Kordack calls himself “Mr. the way to get easy is simple Gadget, but not because he’s handy around the house. It is because he has a heart machine running 24 hours a day. Palatka Daily News (ARA) – Everyone knows that exercise is good. Doctors have told us for years that exercise can help us waste, look better, feel better and even sleep better. is the way to go However, the performance sounds like work, and many of us that we simply do not have time to get more work for our daily lives.

Image Scanner

WideTEK large format scanners now faster the fast and high resolution large format scanner is a reliable solution for demanding users in architectural and engineering firms, of cartography, GIS systems and for copy service providers. The device produces sharp scans from templates with a width up to 36 inches (915 mm) in an optical resolution of 1200 x 600 dpi. Due to higher scanning speed, scan processes can be shortened by scanning through the process up to the digital image output by up to 20 percent. A factor that saves tremendous labor costs in particular at scan service providers”, emphasizes Thomas Ingendoh, Managing Director of image access. The devices are suitable for all users, which place emphasis on the quality scan in addition to the scanning speed”. In addition to the savings from labor costs, low maintenance requirements is a further positive aspect. This is among other things by the dustproof encapsulated camera technology with patented stitching procedure, the LED lighting (life of 50,000 hours) and allows the small number of wear parts. The user controls the scanner either with a standard Internet browser through the Web-based user interface or via the integrated touch screen. With a monitor (option) directly connected to the scanner, the device can be operated completely independent of PC. After scanning, you can change the user image parameters such as color, brightness, contrast, etc.. The effects are immediately displayed on the screen. The template must not be rescanned. Thanks to walk-up scanning, the user sends the scan from the scanner directly to any destination in the network (E.g., target directory, FTP-server or network printer). The scanned image without detours directly on a USB memory device can be placed via the integrated USB interface. The WideTEK 36 scans historical and valuable documents particularly gentle, ensured the ball-bearing wheels and optional plastic bags. Even old transparent drawings are for the Scanner no problem. Thanks to a combination of optimized LED illumination, optional white pressure seesaw and adaptive 2D Binarisierungsalgorithmus supplies of WideTEK 36 high-contrast results and offers a significantly cheaper alternative to conventional transmitted light unit. The large format scanners WideTEK 36 is an efficient solution, because in addition to short process times and low maintenance effort even the cheap price of 9,999 euros (including shelter) guaranteed the efficiency of the device. Image access: Image access is leading manufacturer of large format scanner technology for professional applications. With numerous patented in-house developments, the company is among the technological leaders and employs more than 60 people, most of them at the Wuppertal headquarters.
