Rawtenstall Library is a Carnegie Library located in the town of Rawtenstall,Lancashire.

Plans for a new library in Rawtenstall were drawn up in 1903 following the promise of a donation of £6,000 from the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Originally the building was to have included an Assembly Room and Town Hall but the full proposals failed through lack of funding and it was just the library building that was constructed and officially opened in 1907.

Flickr Brendan O’Carroll was the Grand Marshal At The St. Patrick's Day Parade In Dublin REF-102286

Brendan O’Carroll was the Grand Marshal and as expected he brought his renowned humour and wit to the role!

The Finglas-born star writes and stars in Mrs Brown’s Boys, which has won numerous awards and accolades including three National Television Awards, TV Choice Awards, a Scottish BAFTA, an IFTA award, a TV Times Award and a TV BAFTA for Best Situation Comedy.

Off-camera and stage, Brendan has been committed to helping those less fortunate and was recipient of the philanthropist of the year award recently for his work with St Vincent de Paul, amongst others.

On receiving the Grand Marshal honour, Brendan commented: “In asking me to be Grand Marshal of the Dublin Parade, St. Patrick’s Festival have honoured my family and honoured all of us working in Mrs. Brown’s Boys who try to bring a little piece of Dublin humour around the world. I attended the Dublin Parade in all weathers for over 50 years. From sitting on my sisters’ shoulders to having my own children sitting on mine. I cannot now believe that I am going to get a moment to lead this wonderful gathering of floats, bands and organisations and shout… “Follow me I know a shortcut up Moore Street!”

St Mungo offers benediction flanked by 6 female figures carrying the emblems of the Glasgow arms: a bell, a tree, a fish & a bird. There is a ship too. This frieze is set in a low spandrel over the entrance to the former Hutchesontown Public Library on McNeil Street in The Gorbals where I work. The building was one of 12 public libraries gifted to the city by the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie and one of 7 designed by James Rhind for Glasgow Corporation and for which Kellock Brown is thought to have executed all of the sculpture.

New Lanark is a small 18th- century village set in a sublime Scottish landscape where the philanthropist and Utopian idealist Robert Owen moulded a model industrial community in the early 19th century. The imposing cotton mill buildings, the spacious and well-designed workers' housing, and the dignified educational institute and school still testify to Owen's humanism.

Flickr Statue of Eros - Piccadilly Circus

The famous statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus is one of the symbols of London. It is also known as the Shaftesbury Monument, having been erected as a memorial to the philanthropist Lord Shaftesbury. The actual figure rises above a fountain, which is made in bronze, but Eros is made out of aluminium, at that time a rare and novel material. The sculptor was Alfred Gilbert RA, and he used the fountain idea as an excuse for incorporating a variety of fishes and crustaceous life in the design. The fountain was unveiled in 1893.

The famous statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus is one of the symbols of London. It is also known as the Shaftesbury Monument, having been erected as a memorial to the philanthropist Lord Shaftesbury. The actual figure rises above a fountain, which is made in bronze, but Eros is made out of aluminium, at that time a rare and novel material. The sculptor was Alfred Gilbert RA, and he used the fountain idea as an excuse for incorporating a variety of fishes and crustaceous life in the design. The fountain was unveiled in 1893, and was warmly described by the Magazine of Art as

'a striking contrast to the dull ugliness of the generality of our street sculpture, ... a work which, while beautifying one of our hitherto desolate open spaces, should do much towards the elevation of public taste in the direction of decorative sculpture, and serve freedom for the metropolis from any further additions of the old order of monumental monstrosities.'
Unfortunately, the statue had already been vandalised by August of the same year, and the spot had been 'permitted to be used as a playground by dirty and squalid children'. Since then it has undergone various tribulations, including in 1994 damage by a drunken visitor climbing on it and bending the figure. Since then, it was renovated and put back, as one of the most familiar sculptural emblems of London.

The statue, and the decorations on the base of the fountain, are characteristic of Gilbert's work, in a New Sculpture, art nouveau style. Note particularly among the decoration, the heads and half-figures of children or cherubs, and these are also similar to other studies of the juvenile form by Gilbert.

Yet another hospital built owing to the generosity of the philanthropist Passmore Edwards, this purpose built cottage hospital opened in 1893. It started with 8 beds and was expanded progressively to over 100 in the 1930's. The old buildings continued in use for geriatric patients until 2005, when a PFI building opened on an adjacent site. Little remains of the original buildings. This postcard was posted in 1905 to an address in New Zealand, and has found its way back! For more details, see:-

I've posted two similar postcards, both posted in 1906, but will split the story into two halves. As usual info from the super website, Lost Hospital of London. Opened in 1902, with £5000 from the philanthropist John Passmore Edwards, it was initially rather small, and then extended after the first World War, changing its name to the East Ham Memorial Hospital.

The Bar BC Ranch was a dude ranch that today sits inside the boundaries of Grand Teton National Park. Established in 1912, the ranch's founders Struthers Burt and Dr. Horace Carncross catered to literary figures of the day offering them an authentic Western experience in these rustic cabins along the Snake River, which lies just beyond the golden leafed cottonwood behind the cabins. Burt, and his new business partner Irving Corse, sold the ranch to the philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. in 1929 on condition that they be granted a life estate permitting them to continue operating the dude ranch until both they and their wives passed. Rockefeller bought the land with the intent of it becoming part of a national park in Jackson Hole. A small Grand Teton National Park was created in 1929 but excluded Rockefeller's holdings, including the Bar BC Ranch. Eventually in 1950 the park was expanded including the ranch within the park boundary. The Park Service took ownership of Rockefeller's donated holdings, including the provision for a life estate for Burt, Corse and their wives. Corse later bought out Burt's interest in the life estate, but he died in 1953. His wife Margretta, however, continue to operate the dude ranch until 1985. The land finally passed to Park Service control upon her death in 1988. Since then, the ranch has been in a state of decay as the Park Service had to navigate several legal issues regarding the ownership and taxes on the property's buildings. Plans are currently underway to restore the dude ranch as an interpretive site and one interpretive marker has been erected at the top of the hill overlooking the property. This cabin, numbered 18 on the jamb, is one of the buildings on the property that was recently stabilized to preserve it for future restoration. The cabin has a new roof and several new support timbers for the roof while the walls still show the wear of their age.

Flickr Mocking the Philanthropist (rev 2.0)
Tags: street   freedom   faith   
This image is part of a series trying to depict the street manifesto of one congregation in the USA, with the events taking place downtown Houston/TX, MMXI Anno Domini.

The group, though simply named "The Black Jews", was entirely represented by men (including male children), yet their beliefs are more complex than the simplicity of their title would suggest.

Their religious truth gravitates around the following creed :

"JER, 14:2
The so called White Jews are not the true Biblical jews,
they are imposters and liars.
The true hebrew israelites are those whose fathers are of indian
and negro descent throughout North, Central and South America.
The only real jews are the negroes brought to North America in slavery."

Grossly simplified, their message was to inform the people about the true origin of the Bible's dramatis personae, including both the Old and New Testament.
Also, they felt that the history of the jewish people (in this case, themselves) in the last two millennia had been severely falsified.
Therefore, the spread of false information through "the religious media" has helped convince people of some things they completely disagree with.
Though not denying Christ nor the Prophets, their belief is that the Saviour is negro of origin and so is Moses, among others, thus making the other visual representations of Biblical icons as tools of indoctrination.

All the quotes (as is the one above from JER, 14:2) and other references seen here or the other images of the series are taken from their own version of the Bible.

The shops in Columbia Road only open at the weekend. The street is well known for the Columbia Road flower market.
Columbia Market was established in 1869 by the philanthropist Angela Burdett-Coutts as a covered food market with 400 stalls. A planned railway line for the delivery of fish was never built, and traders preferred selling outdoors. The market closed in 1886, after use as warehouses and small workshops.

Flickr Schlemmer, Oskar (1888-1943) - 1928 Point Line Surface (Private Collection)

Pen, gilt bronze with silver foil collage, paper grain, photo montage and words cut on white cardboard.; 20.1 x 20.1 cm.

Oskar Schlemmer was a German painter, sculptor, designer and choreographer associated with the Bauhaus school. Born in in Stuttgart, his parents both died around 1900 and the Oskar learned at an early age to provide for himself. By 1903 he was supporting himself as an apprentice in an inlay workshop, moving on to another apprenticeship in marquetry. He studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule as well as the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart under the tutelage of landscape painters Christian Landenberger and Friedrich von Keller. In 1910 Schlemmer moved to Berlin where he painted some of his first important works before returning to Stuttgart in 1912 as Adolf Hölzel's master pupil. In 1914 Schlemmer was enlisted to fight on the Western Front in World War I until he was wounded and moved to a position with the military cartography unit until returning to work under Hölzel in 1918.

In 1919 Schlemmer turned to sculpture and had an exhibition in Berlin. In 1920 he was invited to Weimar to run the mural-painting and sculpture departments at the Bauhaus School. However, due to the heightened political atmosphere in Germany at the end of the 1920s, in 1929 Schlemmer resigned and took a job at the Art Academy in Breslau. Schlemmer became known internationally with the première of his 'Triadisches Ballett' in 1922. His work for the Bauhaus and his preoccupation with the theater are an important factor in his work, which deals mainly with the problem of the figure in space. People, typically stylized female figures, continued to be the predominant subject in his painting. After using Cubism as a springboard for his structural studies, Schlemmer's work became intrigued with the possibilities of figures and their relationship to the space around them.

He was obliged to leave the Breslau Academy when it was closed down in the wake of the financial crisis following the Wall Street Crash, and took up a professorship at Berlin's Vereinigte Staatsschulen in 1932, which he held until 1933 when he was forced to resign by the Nazis. His pictures were displayed at the National Socialist exhibition of "Degenerate Art." During World War II Schlemmer worked at the Institut für Malstoffe in Wuppertal run by the philanthropist Kurt Herbert. The factory offered Schlemmer the opportunity to paint without the fear of persecution. His series of eighteen small, mystical paintings entitled "Fensterbilder" ("Window Pictures," 1942) were painted while looking out the window of his house and observing neighbors engaged in their domestic tasks. These were Schlemmer's final works before his death in the hospital at Baden-Baden in 1943.

~Robert Brault

Some exciting news! Got my first cover shot, featured on the front of the Hoboken Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, report published just last week. You can see the shot they used in the comments!

Back to Central Park we go! I have a lot of "favorite" shots that I took on our weekend trip, but I think that this one ranks right up there. I like how you can see the city behind the feel, giving it kind of an urban rural feeling to it. I was going to wait for the clouds to go by and get more of a flare, but I decided to just go with the diffused light look instead! This is a 5 handheld exposure HDR processed with HDR Efex with a Tonal Contrast filter applied in Color Efex.

Thanks a lot for stopping by everyone and have a great week!

I don't mind invitations, but please no big, shiny, flashing, glitter graphics, they will be deleted. Also, please contact me if you would like to use my pictures for any reason, as all rights are reserved. Thanks!

Fort Worth lost two cultural icons this week with the passing of world-renowned pianist Van Cliburn on Wednesday and the philanthropist matriarch of Fort Worth's most prominent family, Nancy Lee Bass on Thursday.

The Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall in downtown Fort Worth was named in honor of the Bass Family. It is a permanent home to the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Texas Ballet Theater, Fort Worth Opera, and the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and Cliburn Concerts.

Two hand-carved 48-foot-tall trumpet-playing angels sculpted by Marton Varo from Texas limestone grace the Grand Facade of the building.

Serp Iwashi footsteps were unaturally loud as a certain resonance is held within the tunnels mouth. No pulse running through that skin..no warmth..his movements almost casual if not for the obvious hinderance of such an overbearing sculpture of steel and wires..Stepping nearer as he hovered above the woman..The faintest seism of his weight almost bending the street to his will as those jaws remained clenched above.Lowly hissing slipping through as that immense palm would move to rest atop the right shoulder..a greeting..an acknowledgement..

Ashur Kentoku follows Anna's gaze and smiles at the two kittens.

Jason Rae looks to Shadowkat with teary eyes, didnt know what point she was making, and keeps crying

Ashur Kentoku quickly whips her face toward the tall black figure and narrows her eyes. She watches warily, flexing her clawed fingers....

Rogue Tuqiri blinks, the low growls still rolling up and tumbling through her vocal chords as she watched the thing... man... whatever it was, approach. All the hair that dusted her velvety skin was raised, a fear rolling through as she couldn't identify what it he was. Frightened eyes darted to Anna, and she shuddered.

Anna Newall feels Serp's hand on her shoulder. Her baser instincts scream out for her to scoop Chan up and run. If her mind were clearer, she would probably listen to that instinct. In her current enraged state, she stands her ground. She imagines that she is channeling Serp's imposing presence through her contact with him. In her mind's eye, her eyes have even begun to glow red as she stares at Chan. "Serp... if you don't mind, I will have to talk to you later. I have an important family matter to attend to here. Chan, I can accept that you really forgot not to ride your scooter... but why did you lie to me about it on the phone? You said you didn't know where it was when it was RIGHt under you."

Channel Liberty whimpers, staring up at her mother and Serp faceing her almost as one person, she falls back completely on her tail as she backs against the wall, "ah..ah got mixed up! ah tol'ju ah weres settin' on it after! ah din't mean t' Lie Mumma!!"

Channel Liberty brings one hand up protectively as she pushes back against the wall, tears forming in her eyes as she stares upward at them in sheer frightened terror

Serp Iwashi would resist the temptation to draw an index finger aside his temple in some scratching motion..Disregarding wishes was all too enjoyable with razored ends clawing into the slope of the shoulder region..No verbal remarks..no quips..just holding her there..A prism of that hatred unlocked and rushing through that touch as he would continue to squeeze and squeeze..Who was she to speak to him in such a manner..His eyes locking over the child..watching the expression that he knew would follow and nearly tasting it as the squirming would likely ensue.

Ashur Kentoku keeps watching the tall dark figure...she remembers past encounters with it and stands ready in case it decided to...misbehave.

Jason Rae says in a low tone "I hidings from da ememies"

Anna Newall feels a blossom of searing pain blooming outward from her shoulder as Serp begins to damage flesh and connective tissue. She can hear her bones creaking under the strain. Fighting to maintain a steely mask, she can't conceal a slight quiver in her lip and the hot glaze of tears forming over her eyes. She takes a deep breath to steady her voice. Sensing that she has made a dire mistake by ignoring her instinct to run, she does the next best thing. "Go home, Chan. Go to the Center with your scooter. Do not stop anywhere until you get there. Don't leave the Center for any reason unless Dani or I gets you. Do you understand?"

Channel Liberty nods mutely, still staring upward fearfully at both of them

Jason Rae says in a whispers "Da tewworist that attacked my's book"

Serana Aridian watches still, trying to figure out what is going on

Anna Newall struggles to control her tone as Chan sits motionless instead of doing as she's told. "Go, Chan!" Anna feels her voice cracking as she says the only thing she wants Chan to remember, if this should be the last time they speak. "I love you, Chan. Go home, and be good for Dani. I love you."

Rogue Tuqiri looks up at the Serp, at the mamma kitty, then at Chan. Very slowly, she leans over, nosing the kitten's ear to spur her along.

Fern Sabre wonders if she should just walk by or stay and help. She see's Anna is hurt and can hear a strain in her voice. She looks at the others wondering why no one is doing anything.

Channel Liberty slowly moves at first, then turns and crawlls as fast as possible on all fours, until she's at the end of the tunnel where she breaks into an all out run!

Serp Iwashi stayed silent for a few passing seconds..The abscence of the lips largely masking his expressions yet the sadistic bliss gleamed through tainted ink..Some ebon plague running the course of those patches pulling into a smirk..The tremors of laughter stirring within his hull as he lowers his head down beside Anna's left ear.."How many -children - do you have miss..newall..." Shearing quality to his mechanical vocals lingering for some time as it would invade the fleshy interior of her means of hearing..The grip unfalteringas his massive frame held close to her backside..The weight comming down and a chill through not fear perhaps but the physical contact from eduded frost like sheathes of plates rubbing against the flimsy cast of her garb.

Ashur Kentoku steps foward as she realizes the dark figure is hurting Anna and extends her claws, whipping one hand up to the dark creature's throat area to rest the diamond-hard, razor-sharp claws against it..."Release her and step back," she purrs. "Now. Or I will decapitate you, and I doubt you could function well without a head." Her tone is quiet but clear, her pale eyes dance with fire...

Rogue Tuqiri chuffs, watching the tiny ne leave, then bristled a little more and panted her feet behind her, eyeing the dark and fear-inspiring apparition that was waking pain in Anna's shoulder like a nightmare. She spat a hiss in it's direction, the heart beat in her chest pounding wildly in her ribs. She slinks back into the wall, bumping the forgotten scooter, ears laid back, eyes darting to either end of the street.

Anna Newall stares at the wall in front of her and gives Serp a vague answer, as though from very far away. "Wherever there is need, I find children. I am mother to the poor, the tired, the huddled masses. If I should meet my end here today, I shall only regret that I did not touch more souls." Anna looks to her left and then to her right, though it hurts to move her neck. "You should all go. I love you for your show of concern, but what happens here will happen whether you intervene or not."

Ashur Kentoku shakes her head..."I've fought and driven off this creature before, and it had help the last time. I'll do better this time." She keeps her eyes trained on the red orbs and speaks to Serp..."This is not a matter for discussion. If you do not release her within seconds, I will carry out my threat." She tenses as her enhanced reflexes hum and the world seems to slow down around her....

Serp Iwashi held a certain composure with feline claws drawn like daggers about the thick gullet..It seemed to hold a ponderosity to the thickness with those skull adorned features contorting to meet the brazen cat..Single eye gravitating to meet the indignation within the face of one he had met before. Without the momenentum he doubted she could carry through such a strike..perhaps a more pez despenser like end to the nefarious one..Anna's words well absorbed for further thought..Full attention drawn to Ashur.." You failed before..and you will - fail- again..."Crackling of each digit peels away from the flesh and matted cloth now soaked under his grip..Almost clinging as he releases to let Anna tumble forward..His head slowly risen back to resume his full stature..though wary of this one..not the typical neko by any means..

Jason Rae nods to her "I goes home nows"

Ashur Kentoku smiles..."Your memory must be damaged, because I did not fail to stop you from kidnapping one of the Pride back then, and I have succeeded in securing the release of Anna now." She keeps her clawed hand gripping the creature's throat and says, "Anna. Go. Get help for yourself. Serp and I will finish our conversation here."

Rogue Tuqiri bounds forward, purring comfortingly to Anna, and decided that if she understood the way humans interacted, she'd do somethign appropriate. As it was, she found herself in a perverted urreal place, save that the blood she scented on Anna was real, and the fear that stammered her set her adrenaline ablaze.

Anna Newall feels a sweet throbbing of residual pain and a rush of endorphins as Serp releases her. Her pulse is racing, and though she knows she will be in pain for days, she feels more alive in this moment than she has in a very long time. Her right knee threatens to buckle and betray her, but she shifts more weight on to her metal left leg, the fearless, cold, lifeless artificial limb that never trembles, never cries, never complains... despite the abuse she has heaped upon it. She is shaken out of her stupor by Ashur's words, and she says the only words that she can force her lips to form. "Thank you."

Anna Newall sees Chan approaching and is spurred into action. She starts to lift her right arm to point, but she is quickly reminded that her right side isn't functional right now. She points with her left hand instead. "Home, Chan!"

Channel Liberty comes running back down the ramp and stops short as she stares at Serp and Anna

Channel Liberty looks up at Anna, "ah wen' an' got help..." she replies so quietly she can barely be heard

Eamon Cale draws his guns smoothly. Holding one behing his back, he steps in front of Chan, eyes darting over the scene before them.

Elise Capalini eyes Ash and Serp--and leaves them be. Tonight is not her night to be fucking around with nasty tempered mechs. "Chan, Anna, out of here now," she says in a low growl.

Serp Iwashi stygian form seemed to ooze an unseen black tar through ones skin..The penetration was enough to plant the seeds of corruption inside he flesh..Abstract maggots boiling under the skin like each one of the children she wished to save..Her body some vessel of protection now pierced..A web of deciet and lies that ran deep within midians roots that only he could so masturfully tame..An awakening as the most devious grin was birthed out of the shadows of his features..Clicking marks shifting his jaws rotation with metal on metal grazing one another through unnaturally large incisors..shearing measures to rend the flesh right off that frame..An air of sarcasm dribbling out through such lazy mannerisms as elongated digits wriggle about below..Descended vision taking note that the claws were still there..The rolling of machinery through the copious depth of his neck..Teeth gnashing down in a clangerous bite..though amusement roiled in each strike..chattering.." Why not continue this at another location..

Serp Iwashi or do you wish to be broken in front of the mob..."Crimson pools englightened in a glow over that malleable texture of flesh he knew so well..furr or not..all the same..like pale moon light consumed by demonic energies to givr a tinge to her skin.. The deep resonance within his unfathomed tone overshadowing all other sounds if even for a moment.

Anna Newall looks at the people that Chan has brought to render aid. She isn't accustomed to running away and leaving others to fight in her stead, but she finds that she has no other choice. She has a child to think of, and she's not the young lady she used to be. Silently, but with a nod to each of those present, she begins walking toward the MCMC with a sense of purpose, pausing only to snag Chan's arm and pull her along. She tries not to think about the priest, the philanthropist, and the friend that she has left behind with the monster.

Elise Capalini looks at Auntie and Eamon. "Ash can handle him," she says softly.

Ashur Kentoku waits until she hears Anna and the kittens have moved away, then slowly releases her clawed hand from the dark creature's throat, letting it slide down the chest before giving a firm shove, showing some strength for her small frame, the motion pushing her and the figure another pace part. "Oh, here is just fine," she purrs. "I don't mind where you get your come-uppance, if thats' what you want." She stands ready, clawed hands flexing and ready to rend and tear, her lips in a gentle smile....

Eamon Cale half-turns his head, watching as Anna leaves with her daughter. His gaze flicks to Elise, at her quiet words, but he doesn't leave just yet. Torn between his nature and what looks like a lass who knows what she's doing, he scowls at Serp and Ash. "We can't just fecking -leave- her..."

Elise Capalini watches Anna and Chan go, only partially relieved. Her mind is on Laz and Bianca; she knows that Eamon is right--God will be with both of them this night, but still. "Eamon, I need you," she says in a low, firm tone at his shoulder. "I need your help with Bianca. Ash," she calls down, "we can't stay--I have cats in trouble."

Ashur Kentoku: "Then tend to them," she mews, without looking back, watching the dark figure before her. She focuses her attention on the figure before her...

Serp Iwashi let out some odd mechanized wail..Ethereal in the ghostly quality held to the one known as the shadow warden..Something so refreshing as he basked in the challenge presented before him..Hissing pops of dense machinery rolling his cranium about..Chest plates perked out momenentarily as he suckled in a great breath..as if to steal some of that precious air..to pick up on all the little tastes that could be carried in through such scents..Cybernetic orbs swirling about as the smoothness of that supple skin would tease him.." You may strike at will..."There was no fancy stances..no battle formation of sorts..to stand there merely talle and coldly evil..Cold lenses falling down the trail of her bare flesh..Rugged chin dipped slightly as a demented tilt accompanied that fixation..The rumbling of that stentorian tone frightfully blunt in its display with illusions of fear nothing more then that..His heel driven further into the cracks now spreading outward under his bulk..

Catabolis Plutonian turns, a red flush still evident on his cheeks. HIs eyes widen at the scene behind him, then narrow into tiny slits. He could spot the one called "Ash" and Elise in the distance, and a whole host of strangers.

Eamon Cale exhales. He can't argue that. And neither can he argue that the lass facing off against Serp looks neither worried or ready to back down. He swears again under his breath, but nods grimly and holsters his guns. St. Michael would be getting a bloody workout tonight. "Right, let's go," he rasps, and turns away, starting up the street.

Ashur Kentoku: ...and says, "Unlike you, I do not relish inflicting pain for the joy of it. I am, however, very good at doing the same in order to protect myself and my friends. As previous experience with me should have taught you. And so, unless *you* wish to strike, I suggest that we go our separate ways." Her voice is, as always, quiet but clear, her eyes still filled with that pale fire, staring into the dark figure's red orbs, unflinching...

Serp Iwashi diabolical glimpse would be taken within that flimsy cast of flesh..already condeming the woman..Ruby consistancy shimmering through his sight as he canted his head region down..Palms inched behind his backside..Perhaps a bow of some sort to allow the combat to ensue upon such a gesture..Ghastly set of incisors clenching tighter as that cackle that had haunted the streets countless times before now slipps through the cracks..of such a grin..A vast fiery pit waiting to be unleashed as if his exterior was a molten cast.." Very well.." His only utterance as he held his height as leverage against her..LIke hellfire fallen from the heavans those eyes dramatically bolster with renewed presense..nearly blaring against those lighter tones like a scarlet beacon..Shrieking of obsidian blades emerging from his backside as the tails of his coat flail behind the movement..Deceptively slow in movement but coiled with enough of that savored energy now released as the entire form shifts off to her right..Knees drawn dow

Serp Iwashi drawn down to lower his own stance as whirling blades try to embrace her from the backside in the last hug she would likely ever recieve if full successful..Violence begeting more of the same..something he drank in large quanties alongside the last squelched cries drawn into that void..

Ashur Kentoku sees the movements begin, fast but not fast enough, her heightened reflexes and central nervous system humming with energy...she pounces gracefully into the air, leaping upward and allowing the blades to sweep by below her and, at the apex of her evasive leap, she snaps a leg out at the creature's face, her booted foot striking like a maddened snake...her feline heritage allows her powerful leaps to the safety of the rootfops, and powerful attacks if she chooses to use that power in such a manner as now.

Serp Iwashi felt the rush of air through a gust now blowing aside ebon folds about the layers of that leathery containment. The boot squarely planting itself along the side of the titanium sheath that held the virtually only vital organ that still existed within the abomination.. Vibration spreading through the construct with a snapping sound forcing a region of his neck exposed..yet there was no grunt..no painfully voiced expression..Steel like determination only rivaled by the very carapace he adorned..Left palm slamming into the asphalt with a blade clattering off to the distance yet his right remained true with a flick of it held downward trying to catch that infamous Achilles tenon running along the same means of her attack..

Ashur Kentoku snaps a clawed hand down in a blurred arc to intercept the strike aimed at her legs, the claws digging in and hopefully doing some damage...she uses the kinetic energy from Serp's strike and her parry to twist and roll in mid-air, her body sliding past his as she descended to the ground to land in a crouch to the side and slightly behind him...

Serp Iwashi rabid emotions that would bring an ordinary being to that adreneline seem entirely unnessecary through such a nearly insurmountable shell..Nails trying to dig in almost feathering accross the bulk of his forearm trying to rend the alloys away from its master.Torn bits raked away though largely still in perfect harmony with the rest of his form.That smile..a cracked image in some twisted reflection of her inner desires to rend him apart as the blade retracts..the tip held low..His left palm relieving the pavement of that burden and slipping within his coak as a wary eye is cast from the corner of crimson spheres..

Ashur Kentoku uses her advantageous position to strike hard and fast, a double claw strike aimed at the arm with the blade....designed to pierce and rupture even strong armour, they hiss through the air, seeking...

Serp Iwashi shadowy siloulette shadow seemed to part ways away from its creator as crimson glare heightens..Fiery embers purged from the charred peelings of his constuction as those claws sought to pierce him. Fine spindles unravel about his left palm during near enevitability of the attack hitting its mark yet that arm would quickly rise to let them dip under it..Exposed wrists calling for the hooks ends to tie it together..Black peelings littering the pavement below with thick mechanical digits trying to work about those slender wrists.

Ashur Kentoku carries her strike through into a twist and pivot of her body as the arm jus barely escapes her claws, and she spins in place, the dark figure's questing digits going astray. As she spins, she lashes out with a booted foot from her semi-crouched position, the whiplash-fast attack aimed at the back of the figure's knees, in order to knock it down...

Serp Iwashi grappling talons of his hook clatter over the pavement again as one knee buckles he would remain there and simply fling the rustic tool right beside her face..Likely merging with those silky strands and arriving out the other end as he would pull back the moment it passed her to hopefully catch her and rip her back within his grip ..A switch off from one hand to the other as the opposing palm held that blade waiting to carve her to his desires.

Ashur Kentoku bends aside as the hook flashes at her face, again her reflexes up to the task, and brings her hands up to grasp the cable attached to it, swinging the hook around and over her head then toward Serp, aiming its course to wrap the cable around him and possibly dig in as it was meant to dig, thus giving her the space she wanted to jump away...

Serp Iwashi ducks in much the same fashion though lacking the feline grace in a more jerk of his facial construct..A rather feigned gruntish mark of his agitation as the cord is looped about his biceps..now overing the expanse of his chest in some constriction..His position changed as his heels kick up small bits of rubble to tower over her though still entangled in his own means of capturing the crafty cat..Narrowing his vision to reduce his sight to slits of cardinal..Growing irritation fueling him as she jumped well out of distance.

Ashur Kentoku leaps onto the nearby rooftop and turns to face the darkness below..."I'll always be here, creature, " she hisses. "Always, and I'll stop you at every turn." She smiles again, and leaps away into the shadows that she too, loves, perhaps at least as much as he did.

Serp Iwashi orbs rolled over once with his chest heaving..plates expanding about the pectoral region and biceps alike..His own chord offering little resistance as the cable snaps with a final breath to loosely fall below those heels..Tubular protrusions funneling out his aggravation in beckoned fumes as he sneered..

"Ill stay in Gotham as long as it takes. I'm gonna show the people of Gotham their city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt."

The story of Bruce Wayne starts at the young age of eight, when his parents Thomas and Martha Wayne were brutally gunned down by a street thug. Bruce left Gotham running from his problems, only to realize from trainer and mentor Ras Al Ghul that the hate lies within himself. Trained for the toughest of combat, Bruce vows to return to Gotham and rid the city of crime and curruption. He takes on a persona of a billionair, playboy, industrialist, and philanthropist...only to avoid being found as Gothams dark knight. The Batman is no hero, he is a symbol of hope for a city shuddered in darkness. Bruce Wayne is the true hero, for which he will never take gratitude for...because he is the symbol for which the city is protected by. That is a true hero.

As most of you may know Im an avid toy collector, and have obtained several Hot Toys figures. Recently I spent a little spare cash and time on a custom figure. This is my custom Hot Toys 1:6 Bruce Wayne. Check out the full story here.

France or South Lowlands (South Netherlandish), ca. 1400-1410. Wool warp; wool wefts.

The subject of the Nine Heros first appears about 1312 in a romance by the poet Jacques de Longuyon called Les Voeux du paon (The Vows of the Peacock). The nine worthies in Longuyon's tale were considered to embody both wisdom and valor, the consummation of chivalric ideals. Of the nine, three are classical (Hector of Troy, Alexander the Great, and Julius Caesar), three are Hebrew (Joshua, David, and Judas Maccabaeus, who led the Jews against the Syrians), and three are Christian (Arthur, Charlemagne, and Godfrey of Bouillon, who recaptured Jerusalem during the first Crusade).

Although fragmentary, The Cloisters' Nine Heroes constitute one of the very few extant tapestry sets from the turn of the fifteenth century. They were originally three large horizontal hangings, each with a trio of protagonists sitting across its width beneath vaulted spaces. Architectural elements such as crenellation and tracery windows functioned as compartmentalizing devices and helped create convincing spatial depth. The group was later cut down and used as curtains, and now just five heroes from this remarkable set remain: Julius Caesar, Hector, David, Joshua, and Arthur. Many of the details included in the tapestries are meant to enhance our understanding of the heroes depicted. Julius Cesar, for example, is surrounded by musicians and courtiers, some of whom appear to be African or Asian—perhaps an allusion to his military campaigns outside Europe. Arthur, on the other hand, is portrayed as a Christian ruler, accompanied, fittingly, by a group of clergymen of different ranks. The small attendants in secondary spaces are comparable to similarly marginalized and equally elusive figures often found in contemporary stained glass and manuscript paintings.

This tapestry is part of four hangings that have been reconstructed from what originally was a set of three tapestries depicting the Nine (or Ten?) Worthies. The heroes depicted included King Arthur, Joshua & David (SHOWN ABOVE), Hector of Troy, and Julius Caesar, along with various attendants. One of the reconstructed hangings shows two of the three Hebrew Worthies in their settings and with nearly all of their attendant figures. Another represents King Arthur, one of the three or possibly four figures that appeared in the original tapestry devoted to the Christian Worthies, together with some attendant figures. The third and fourth pieces represent respectively Hector of Troy and Julius Caesar, with attendant, taken from a third tapestry that depicted the three Pagan Worthies. Other fragments, showing architectural elements, bits of landscape, and the incomplete figures of three cardinals and a bishop, all apparently unconnected to those parts of the three original hangings that survive, are preserved separately in the Metropolitan Museum.

THE CLOISTERS
Described by Germain Bazin, former director of the Musée du Louvre in Paris, as "the crowning achievement of American museology," is the branch of the Metropolitan Museum devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. Located on four acres overlooking the Hudson River in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park, the building incorporates elements from five medieval French cloisters—quadrangles enclosed by a roofed or vaulted passageway, or arcade—and from other monastic sites in southern France. Three of the cloisters reconstructed at the branch museum feature gardens planted according to horticultural information found in medieval treatises and poetry, garden documents and herbals, and medieval works of art, such as tapestries, stained-glass windows, and column capitals. Approximately five thousand works of art from medieval Europe, dating from about A.D. 800 with particular emphasis on the twelfth through fifteenth century, are exhibited in this unique and sympathetic context.

The collection focuses on the Romanesque and Gothic periods. Renowned for its architectural sculpture, The Cloisters also rewards visitors with exquisite illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, metalwork, enamels, ivories, and tapestries.

The Cloisters, which celebrated its sixtieth anniversary in 1998, is named for the portions of five medieval French cloisters—Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Bonnefont-en-Comminges, Trie-en-Bigorre, and Froville—that were incorporated into the modern museum building. The result is not a copy of any particular medieval structure but an ensemble of spaces, rooms, and gardens that provide a harmonious and evocative setting in which visitors can experience the rich tradition of medieval artistic production. Just as cloisters provided sheltered access from one building to another within a monastery, here they act as passageways from gallery to gallery. They provide as inviting a place for rest, contemplation, and conversation as they did for their original monastic population.

Much of the sculpture at The Cloisters was acquired by George Grey Barnard (1863–1938), a prominent American sculptor and avid collector of medieval art. While working in rural France before World War I, Barnard supplemented his income by locating and selling medieval sculpture and architectural fragments that had made their way into the hands of local landowners over several centuries of political and religious upheaval. He kept many pieces for himself and, upon returning to the United States, opened to the public a churchlike brick structure on Fort Washington Avenue filled with his collection—the first installation of medieval art of its kind in America.

Through the generosity of the philanthropist and collector John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (1874–1960), the museum and all of its contents were acquired by the Museum in 1925. By 1927, it was clear that a new, larger building would be needed to display the collection in a more scholarly fashion. In addition to financing the conversion of 66.5 acres of land just north of Barnard's museum into a public park—inside which the new museum building would be located—and donating seven hundred acres of additional land to the state of New Jersey across the Hudson River to ensure that the view from The Cloisters remain unsullied, Rockefeller contributed medieval works of art from his own collection (including the celebrated set of seven South Netherlandish tapestries depicting "The Hunt of the Unicorn") and established an endowment for operations and future acquisitions.

The new museum building was designed by Charles Collens (1873–1956), the architect of New York City's Riverside Church, in a simplified, paraphrased medieval style, incorporating and reconstructing the cloister elements salvaged by Barnard. Joseph Breck (1885–1933), a curator of decorative arts and assistant director of the Metropolitan, and James J. Rorimer (1905–1966), who would later be named director, were primarily responsible for the interior. Balancing Collens's interpretation with strict attention to historical accuracy, Breck and Rorimer created in the galleries a clear and logical flow from the Romanesque (ca. 1000–ca. 1150) through the Gothic period (ca. 1150–1520). The Cloisters was formally dedicated on May 10, 1938. The Treasury, containing sumptuous objects created for liturgical celebrations, personal devotions, and secular uses, was renovated in 1988. The galleries in which the seven tapestries depicting "The Hunt of the Unicorn" are hung were refurbished in 1999.

The aqueduct served Larnaca from 1747 to 1941. Urbanization and rapid expansion have brought Larnaca closer to the Kamares and thus their old romance has gone, but they remain a cherished spot, very much part of the landscape, a monument to Bekir Pasha the philanthropist and part of Larnaca's history"

Shot of the buildings along the Singapore River .

Info from Wikipedia
The mouth of the Singapore River was the old Port of Singapore, being naturally sheltered by the southern islands. Historically, the city of Singapore initially grew around the port so the river mouth became the centre of trade, commerce and finance. To this day, area around the old Singapore River mouth, the Downtown Core, remains the most expensive and economically important piece of land in Singapore.

At one time, Singapore River was the very lifeblood of the colony, the trade artery, the center of commercial activity, the heart of entrepot trade, the vessel of importance, the capillaries of life and the place which was frequented by the secret societies, the swaylos (Cantonese for coolies who worked on a boat) and the coolies who worked for the philanthropist Tan Tock Seng at Ellenborough Market and the towkay (Hokkien for business owner) Tan Kim Seng who was busy filling his godown with the riches of the East.

Singapore River is where the colourful and romantic history of the river and the myths and legends can still conjure up memories of the lighters, bumboats, tongkangs with their painted eyes to see the danger ahead and sampans of yesteryear. This is where the Malayan princes once sailed and this is where the bullock carts plodded their way up and down each bank as the river found its way to the former rocky river mouth. This is also where an early civilisation was conquered by the Javanese Majapahit Empire, in the year 1376.

It was here too that the Chinese lived, on the south bank, the Malays in kampongs further upstream, and the Indians used to reside until the Chinese forced them out to Rochor, Kallang and Geylang.

Some of the temples, shrines and other places of worship still stand in the vicinity of the river. So too are the godowns, the bridges such as Anderson Bridge, Elgin Bridge and Cavenagh Bridge, the Merlion, the shophouses, and the large trees such as Banyan and Madras Thorn. Some parts of this area include quays such as Clarke Quay and Boat Quay, which generated trade and extensive demand for services with the boats that landed at the quays. Boat Quay itself was handling three quarters of the shipping service in the 1860s. Shophouses and warehouses flourished around the quays due to their proximity to trade during the colonial era, but presently house various bars, pubs and restaurants, as well as antique shops.

The river still borders places where seamen and others, for example, near Raffles Landing Place, made offerings and burned their joss sticks. Poles with streamers flying were once used to tie up the barges as the water lapped against the old stone steps and walls.

Sir Stamford Raffles lost no time after January 1819, when he landed on Singapore River among the orang laut and the human skulls, the victims of river pirates, in bargaining with the Temenggong, the Johor chief who then ruled the place, having settled in 1811. At the very moment of landing, Raffles must have realised the importance of the river for, in the same year of 1819, the north bank was drained for government buildings and, in 1822, the south bank was reclaimed and a retaining wall and steps were built.

With the expansion of trade came congestion and pollution. Through lack of knowledge or foresight, the bridges were constructed too low and the river was too shallow for the demands that were to be made on its use. This historic river, which Raffles had fashioned from salt marshes, sand bars and mangrove swamps, has witnessed the British rule and the Japanese occupation, and has supported years of economic activity by the Chinese, Malays, Indians and others.

Old maps of the river state that it actually originates from Bukit Larangan (currently Fort Canning Hill).
[edit] Pollution and cleanup

Starting in the 1880s, there was heavy traffic on the Singapore River due to rapid urbanization and expanding trade. At the same time, it brought in water pollution caused by the disposal of garbage, sewage and other by-products of industries located along the river's banks. The sources of water pollution into the Singapore River and Kallang Basin included pig wastes from pig and duck farms, unsewered premises, street hawkers and vegetable wholesaling. Riverine activities such as transport, boat building and repairs were also found along the Singapore River. Some 750 lighters plied along the Singapore River and Kallang Basin in 1977. Waste, oil spills and wastewater from these boats and lighters added to the pollution of the rivers.

In 1977, Lee Kuan Yew, then the Prime Minister put forth an ambitious goal for the government to clean up the Singapore River and Kallang Basin: and in ten years let us have fishing in the Singapore River and Kallang River. It can be done.

By October 1977, an action plan on "The Clean-up of the Singapore River and Kallang Basin" was submitted to the Prime Minister. By late 1977, the government was starting to take action to clean up the river. The plan involved the development of infrastructure such as housing, industrial workshops and sewage; massive resettlement of squatters, backyard trades and industries and farmers; re-siting of street hawkers to food centres; and phasing out of pollutive activities. Industries located by the river were removed and squatters were resettled into flats. Refuse was collected daily for incineration, while hawkers were issued licenses and provided specified areas with proper sewerage amenities. The dredging of the river bed and the removal of hundreds of tons of debris which had been piled up over the years helped marine life to return to the tidal river.

Ten years later in 1987, the clean-up of the Singapore River and Kallang Basin was completed. In September 1987, the Ministry of the Environment together with other government ministries and statutory boards celebrated the success of the clean-up with an event called the "Clean Rivers Commemoration". After the massive clean-up, people can now engage in activities such as wayang performances on a bumboat, variety shows staged on pontoons anchored in the river, and boat races. Today, speedboats, dragon boats, pedal-boats and sampans can be seen plying on the clean waterways of the Singapore River.

Greyfriars Bobby was a Skye Terrier who became known in the 19th-century in Edinburgh and Scotland after reportedly spending fourteen years guarding his owner's grave, until his own death on 14th January 1872.

A year after the dog died, the philanthropist Lady Burdett-Coutts had a statue and fountain erected to commemorate him.

Several books and films have been based on Bobby's life.

The pub in the background, named after the dog, has a relaxed atmosphere with decent pubgrub and good beer. What more could you want of a pub?

With rising political tension between Iran and the West nowadays, this could be the right moment to show how beautiful and peaceful the soul of the Iranian people really is. Don't let the media fool you. Iranians will embrace you with the most embarrassing hospitality you might ever encounter.

Khwāja Šamsu d-Dīn Muḥammad Hāfez-e Šhīrāzī (Persian: خواجه شمس‌الدین محمد حافظ شیرازی), known by his pen name Hāfez (1325/26–1389/90) was a Persian lyric poet. His collected works composed of series of Persian poetry (Divan) are to be found in the homes of most Iranians, who learn his poems by heart and use them as proverbs and sayings to this day. His life and poems have been the subject of much analysis, commentary and interpretation, influencing post-Fourteenth Century Persian writing more than any other author. Themes of his ghazals are the beloved, faith, and exposing hypocrisy. His influence in the lives of Iranians can be found in Hafez-readings (fāl-e hāfez, Persian: فال حافظ), frequent use of his poems in Persian traditional music, visual art and Persian calligraphy. His tomb in Shiraz is a masterpiece of Iranian architecture and visited often. Adaptations, imitations and translations of Hafez' poems exist in all major languages.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hafez

The Tomb of Hafez and its associated memorial hall, the Hāfezieh, are two memorial structures erected in the northern edge of Shiraz, Iran, in memory of the celebrated Persian poet Hafez. The open pavilion structures are situated in the Musalla Gardens on the north bank of a seasonal river and house the marble tomb of Hafez. The present buildings, built in 1935 and designed by the French architect and archaeologist André Godard, are at the site of previous structures, the most well-known of which was built in 1773. The tomb, its gardens, and the surrounding memorials to other great figures are a focus of tourism in Shiraz.

Hafez was born in Shiraz in 1315 and died there in 1390. A beloved figure of the Iranian people, who learn his verses by heart, Hafez was prominent in his home town and held a position as the court poet. In his memory, a small, dome-like structure was erected in Shiraz near his grave at Golgast-e Mosalla in 1452 at the order of Babur Ibn-Baysunkur, a Timurid governor. The Golgast-e Mosalla were gardens (now known as Musalla Gardens) that featured in Hafiz's poetry. With a surface of over 19,000 square metres, the gardens were also home to one of Shiraz's cemeteries, and Babur had a pool built here at the same time as the memorial. Believing they were ordered by omens in Hafez's poetry, Abbas I of Persia and Nader Shah both carried out separate restoration projects in the following 300 years.

A much more substantial memorial was constructed in the gardens in 1773 during the reign of Karim Khan Zand. Situated on the north bank of the seasonal Rudkhaneye Khoshk river in the Musalla Gardens, the Hāfezieh consisted of four central columns, with two rooms built at the east and west end and with the north and south sides remaining open. The building split the gardens into two regions, with the orange grove in the front and the cemetery in the back. The actual tomb was outside of the structure, in the middle of the cemetery, with a marble slab placed over the grave. The marble was engraved by a calligrapher with excerpts from Hafez's poetry.

The tomb was restored in 1857 by a governor of Fars, and a wooden enclosure was built around the tomb in 1878, by another governor of Fars. Following this, the site became a subject of controversy, when, in 1899, Ardeshir, a Parsi from India began to build a shrine around Hafez's grave. Although the philanthropist Parsi had obtained permission from a ulema of Shiraz to build the iron and wood shrine, a doctor of religious law with some authority in Shiraz, ʿAli-Akbar Fāl-Asiri, objected to a Zoroastrian building over the grave of a Muslim. With his followers, he destroyed the half-built construction. The people of Shiraz protested the destruction and the government ordered the rebuilding of the monument, but Fāl-Asiri opposed them and pronounced that he would destroy any building raised there, even if it were erected by the king himself.

The site remained in ruins for two years, until 1901 when Prince Malek Mansur Mirza Shao es-Saltaneh placed a decorative iron transenna around Hafez's tomb. It was inscribed with verse and the names of the patrons of the transenna.

Activities to restore and expand the memorial to Hafez began in 1931, when the orange grove was repaired and the Hāfezieh was altered by a governor of Fars and Isfahan, Faraj-Allāh Bahrāmi Dabir-e Aʿẓam. Additional improvements were delayed until the Ministry of Education organised for a new building to be built, in 1935. André Godard, a French archaeologist and architect, was the technical director of the Department of Antiquities at the time, and was commissioned to design the new buildings.

Alterations to Hafez's tomb involved elevating it one metre above ground level and encircling it with five steps. Eight columns, each ten metres tall, support a copper dome in the shape of a dervish's hat. The underside of the dome is an arabesque and colourful mosaic. The original, four-columned memorial hall built in 1773 by Karim Khan Zand was extensively expanded. Sixteen pillars were added to the four original, creating a long verandah, and on several façades are engraved ghazals and other excerpts from Hafez's poetry.

A REBEL WITH A CAUSE.

Series Premiere Wednesday, June 24th 10/9c


"The Philanthropist" chronicles the heroic adventures of a billionaire playboy turned vigilante philanthropist. James Purefoy ("Rome") stars as Teddy Rist, a successful and impulsive tycoon who decides to channel his passion, power and money into helping those in need.
Teddy Rist loves women, money and power. After the tragic death of his only child, Teddy has an awakening and becomes the world's first vigilante philanthropist -- a renegade billionaire who uses his wealth and connections to help people in need. Instead of spending $25,000 a plate at a fundraiser, he's dodging bullets in third world countries to hand deliver vaccines. It's an inspiring global adventure that will take you to the ends of the earth.
Rist's actions are not just about helping others -- he is purging his soul to help exorcise the inner demons that have been festering ever since his young son died and he lost everything he truly loved. The danger and risk to his life is the only way he can feel genuinely alive and he'll do anything in order to achieve his goals.
A man who has everything but can feel nothing, Rist keeps his adrenaline pumping by putting his business head and money-making skills to good use through bargaining with the self-righteous, making deals with drug barons, and trading with the nefarious.
"The Philanthropist" boasts a heady cast of established and up-and-coming talent. Purefoy takes on the lead role of Teddy Rist, Jesse L. Martin ("Law & Order") plays Teddy's business partner and friend Philip Maidstone, and Neve Campbell ("Burn Up") plays Philip's wife Olivia.
Purefoy, Martin and Campbell are supported by a tremendous lineup of names from both sides of the Atlantic including Lindy Booth ("The 4400"), Michael Kenneth Williams ("The Wire"), Krista Allen ("The Starter Wife") and newcomer James Albrecht.
From Universal Media Studios, "The Philanthropist" is a Carnival Films production in association with The Levinson/Fontana Company and Original Media. Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson, Peter Horton, Charlie Corwin, Gareth Neame and Teri Weinberg serve as executive producers.

The Shrine of the Book, a wing of the Israel Museum near Givat Ram in western Jerusalem, houses the Dead Sea Scrolls—discovered 1947–56 in 11 caves in and around the Wadi Qumran. (The shrine was initially to be built, but was not, on the Givat Ram campus of the Hebrew University, adjoining the National Library.)

An elaborate planning process of seven years led to the building's eventual construction in 1965 which was funded by the family of David Samuel Gottesman, the Hungarian émigré, the philanthropist who had purchased the scrolls as a gift to the State of Israel. One of the architects—the pragmatic Armand Phillip Bartos (1910–2005)—was evidently chosen based on his being married to Gottesman's daughter Celeste Ruth Gottesman (who formerly had married Jerome John Altman in 1935 and divorced). For the other appointed architect—the oddball visionary Frederick John Kiesler (1890–1965)—Gottesman had earlier funded a fact-finding project to discover if Kiesler's "Endless House" could be installed at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City. On the architect team was a man called Gezer Heller, who went on to build many important structures in the new State of Israel. He married Alice Hammer, sister of Ibbi Hammer, the woman who became the chief banker of the State of Israel. She was the daughter of the Chief Rabbi of Budapest.

Initially, Israeli architects strongly objected to non-Israeli architects' having been chosen through nepotism and to Kiesler's having never completed his architectural studies in Vienna and Berlin (though licensed as an architect in New York) and having never built anything. He was primarily an avant-garde stage designer who taught occasionally. Nevertheless, the American-Jewish architects had been chosen by Gottesman as early as 1955.

The shrine is built as a white dome, covering a structure placed two-thirds below the ground, that is reflected in a pool of water that surrounds it. Across from the white dome is a black basalt wall. The colors and shapes of the building are based on the imagery of the Scroll of the War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness, whereas the white dome symbolizes the Sons of Light and the black wall symbolizes the Sons of Darkness.

As the fragility of the scrolls makes it impossible to display all on a continuous basis, a system of rotation is used. After a scroll has been exhibited for 3–6 months, it is removed from its showcase and placed temporarily in a special storeroom, where it "rests" from exposure.

The museum also holds other rare ancient manuscripts and displays The Aleppo Codex. Its dome, due to the quirky architecture, has been used as scenery for several science fiction movies.

A REBEL WITH A CAUSE.

Series Premiere Wednesday, June 24th 10/9c


"The Philanthropist" chronicles the heroic adventures of a billionaire playboy turned vigilante philanthropist. James Purefoy ("Rome") stars as Teddy Rist, a successful and impulsive tycoon who decides to channel his passion, power and money into helping those in need.
Teddy Rist loves women, money and power. After the tragic death of his only child, Teddy has an awakening and becomes the world's first vigilante philanthropist -- a renegade billionaire who uses his wealth and connections to help people in need. Instead of spending $25,000 a plate at a fundraiser, he's dodging bullets in third world countries to hand deliver vaccines. It's an inspiring global adventure that will take you to the ends of the earth.
Rist's actions are not just about helping others -- he is purging his soul to help exorcise the inner demons that have been festering ever since his young son died and he lost everything he truly loved. The danger and risk to his life is the only way he can feel genuinely alive and he'll do anything in order to achieve his goals.
A man who has everything but can feel nothing, Rist keeps his adrenaline pumping by putting his business head and money-making skills to good use through bargaining with the self-righteous, making deals with drug barons, and trading with the nefarious.
"The Philanthropist" boasts a heady cast of established and up-and-coming talent. Purefoy takes on the lead role of Teddy Rist, Jesse L. Martin ("Law & Order") plays Teddy's business partner and friend Philip Maidstone, and Neve Campbell ("Burn Up") plays Philip's wife Olivia.
Purefoy, Martin and Campbell are supported by a tremendous lineup of names from both sides of the Atlantic including Lindy Booth ("The 4400"), Michael Kenneth Williams ("The Wire"), Krista Allen ("The Starter Wife") and newcomer James Albrecht.
From Universal Media Studios, "The Philanthropist" is a Carnival Films production in association with The Levinson/Fontana Company and Original Media. Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson, Peter Horton, Charlie Corwin, Gareth Neame and Teri Weinberg serve as executive producers.

A REBEL WITH A CAUSE.

Series Premiere Wednesday, June 24th 10/9c


"The Philanthropist" chronicles the heroic adventures of a billionaire playboy turned vigilante philanthropist. James Purefoy ("Rome") stars as Teddy Rist, a successful and impulsive tycoon who decides to channel his passion, power and money into helping those in need.
Teddy Rist loves women, money and power. After the tragic death of his only child, Teddy has an awakening and becomes the world's first vigilante philanthropist -- a renegade billionaire who uses his wealth and connections to help people in need. Instead of spending $25,000 a plate at a fundraiser, he's dodging bullets in third world countries to hand deliver vaccines. It's an inspiring global adventure that will take you to the ends of the earth.
Rist's actions are not just about helping others -- he is purging his soul to help exorcise the inner demons that have been festering ever since his young son died and he lost everything he truly loved. The danger and risk to his life is the only way he can feel genuinely alive and he'll do anything in order to achieve his goals.
A man who has everything but can feel nothing, Rist keeps his adrenaline pumping by putting his business head and money-making skills to good use through bargaining with the self-righteous, making deals with drug barons, and trading with the nefarious.
"The Philanthropist" boasts a heady cast of established and up-and-coming talent. Purefoy takes on the lead role of Teddy Rist, Jesse L. Martin ("Law & Order") plays Teddy's business partner and friend Philip Maidstone, and Neve Campbell ("Burn Up") plays Philip's wife Olivia.
Purefoy, Martin and Campbell are supported by a tremendous lineup of names from both sides of the Atlantic including Lindy Booth ("The 4400"), Michael Kenneth Williams ("The Wire"), Krista Allen ("The Starter Wife") and newcomer James Albrecht.
From Universal Media Studios, "The Philanthropist" is a Carnival Films production in association with The Levinson/Fontana Company and Original Media. Tom Fontana, Barry Levinson, Peter Horton, Charlie Corwin, Gareth Neame and Teri Weinberg serve as executive producers.

The Cloisters—described by Germain Bazin, former director of the Musée du Louvre in Paris, as "the crowning achievement of American museology"—is the branch of the Metropolitan Museum devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. Located on four acres overlooking the Hudson River in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park, the building incorporates elements from five medieval French cloisters—quadrangles enclosed by a roofed or vaulted passageway, or arcade—and from other monastic sites in southern France. Three of the cloisters reconstructed at the branch museum feature gardens planted according to horticultural information found in medieval treatises and poetry, garden documents and herbals, and medieval works of art, such as tapestries, stained-glass windows, and column capitals. Approximately five thousand works of art from medieval Europe, dating from about A.D. 800 with particular emphasis on the twelfth through fifteenth century, are exhibited in this unique and sympathetic context.

The collection at The Cloisters is complemented by more than six thousand objects exhibited in several galleries on the first floor of the Museum's main building on Fifth Avenue. A single curatorial department oversees medieval holdings at both locations. The collection at the main building displays a somewhat broader geographical and temporal range, while the focus at The Cloisters is on the Romanesque and Gothic periods. Renowned for its architectural sculpture, The Cloisters also rewards visitors with exquisite illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, metalwork, enamels, ivories, and tapestries.

Highlights from the collection housed at The Cloisters are presented online, organized first by culture and, within cultures, chronologically. See Medieval Art for more highlights from the department.

More about the Department and Its Collection


The Cloisters, which celebrated its sixtieth anniversary in 1998, is named for the portions of five medieval French cloisters—Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Bonnefont-en-Comminges, Trie-en-Bigorre, and Froville—that were incorporated into the modern museum building. The result is not a copy of any particular medieval structure but an ensemble of spaces, rooms, and gardens that provide a harmonious and evocative setting in which visitors can experience the rich tradition of medieval artistic production. Just as cloisters provided sheltered access from one building to another within a monastery, here they act as passageways from gallery to gallery. They provide as inviting a place for rest, contemplation, and conversation as they did for their original monastic population.

Much of the sculpture at The Cloisters was acquired by George Grey Barnard (1863–1938), a prominent American sculptor and avid collector of medieval art. While working in rural France before World War I, Barnard supplemented his income by locating and selling medieval sculpture and architectural fragments that had made their way into the hands of local landowners over several centuries of political and religious upheaval. He kept many pieces for himself and, upon returning to the United States, opened to the public a churchlike brick structure on Fort Washington Avenue filled with his collection—the first installation of medieval art of its kind in America.

Through the generosity of the philanthropist and collector John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (1874–1960), the museum and all of its contents were acquired by the Museum in 1925. By 1927, it was clear that a new, larger building would be needed to display the collection in a more scholarly fashion. In addition to financing the conversion of 66.5 acres of land just north of Barnard's museum into a public park—inside which the new museum building would be located—and donating seven hundred acres of additional land to the state of New Jersey across the Hudson River to ensure that the view from The Cloisters remain unsullied, Rockefeller contributed medieval works of art from his own collection (including the celebrated set of seven South Netherlandish tapestries depicting "The Hunt of the Unicorn") and established an endowment for operations and future acquisitions.

The new museum building was designed by Charles Collens (1873–1956), the architect of New York City's Riverside Church, in a simplified, paraphrased medieval style, incorporating and reconstructing the cloister elements salvaged by Barnard. Joseph Breck (1885–1933), a curator of decorative arts and assistant director of the Metropolitan, and James J. Rorimer (1905–1966), who would later be named director, were primarily responsible for the interior. Balancing Collens's interpretation with strict attention to historical accuracy, Breck and Rorimer created in the galleries a clear and logical flow from the Romanesque (ca. 1000–ca. 1150) through the Gothic period (ca. 1150–1520). The Cloisters was formally dedicated on May 10, 1938. The Treasury, containing sumptuous objects created for liturgical celebrations, personal devotions, and secular uses, was renovated in 1988. The galleries in which the seven tapestries depicting "The Hunt of the Unicorn" are hung were refurbished in 1999.

The collection at The Cloisters continues to grow, thanks to Rockefeller's endowment and other significant gifts. Among its masterpieces are an early-fifteenth-century French illuminated book of hours, Les Belles Heures de Jean, Duc de Berry; a richly carved twelfth-century ivory cross attributed to the English abbey of Bury Saint Edmunds; stained-glass windows from the castle chapel at Ebreichsdorf, Austria; a stone Virgin of the mid-thirteenth century from the choir screen of Strasbourg Cathedral in France; and the so-called Merode Triptych, representing the Annunciation, by the fifteenth-century Netherlandish master Robert Campin.

This beautiful white building overlooks Glasgow Green and the statue is carved in sandstone and depicts a boy holding a slate and a piece of chalk. Originally, in 1846, it was the mansion of the cotton baron, Duguld MacPhail, then in 1859 the philanthropist James Buchanan left £30,000 for its conversion into a school "for the maintenance and instruction of destitute children."
The statue was the work of the sculptor William Brodie in 1873. A year earlier he had completed arguably Scotland's most famous statue, that of Greyfriars Bobby on George IV Bridge in Edinburgh.

Lithograph; 55.5 x 36 cm.

Oskar Schlemmer was a German painter, sculptor, designer and choreographer associated with the Bauhaus school. Born in in Stuttgart, his parents both died around 1900 and the Oskar learned at an early age to provide for himself. By 1903 he was supporting himself as an apprentice in an inlay workshop, moving on to another apprenticeship in marquetry. He studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule as well as the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart under the tutelage of landscape painters Christian Landenberger and Friedrich von Keller. In 1910 Schlemmer moved to Berlin where he painted some of his first important works before returning to Stuttgart in 1912 as Adolf Hölzel's master pupil. In 1914 Schlemmer was enlisted to fight on the Western Front in World War I until he was wounded and moved to a position with the military cartography unit until returning to work under Hölzel in 1918.

In 1919 Schlemmer turned to sculpture and had an exhibition in Berlin. In 1920 he was invited to Weimar to run the mural-painting and sculpture departments at the Bauhaus School. However, due to the heightened political atmosphere in Germany at the end of the 1920s, in 1929 Schlemmer resigned and took a job at the Art Academy in Breslau. Schlemmer became known internationally with the première of his 'Triadisches Ballett' in 1922. His work for the Bauhaus and his preoccupation with the theater are an important factor in his work, which deals mainly with the problem of the figure in space. People, typically stylized female figures, continued to be the predominant subject in his painting. After using Cubism as a springboard for his structural studies, Schlemmer's work became intrigued with the possibilities of figures and their relationship to the space around them.

He was obliged to leave the Breslau Academy when it was closed down in the wake of the financial crisis following the Wall Street Crash, and took up a professorship at Berlin's Vereinigte Staatsschulen in 1932, which he held until 1933 when he was forced to resign by the Nazis. His pictures were displayed at the National Socialist exhibition of "Degenerate Art." During World War II Schlemmer worked at the Institut für Malstoffe in Wuppertal run by the philanthropist Kurt Herbert. The factory offered Schlemmer the opportunity to paint without the fear of persecution. His series of eighteen small, mystical paintings entitled "Fensterbilder" ("Window Pictures," 1942) were painted while looking out the window of his house and observing neighbors engaged in their domestic tasks. These were Schlemmer's final works before his death in the hospital at Baden-Baden in 1943.

Queens Square, the site of Rawtenstall’s bus station since 1948, was transformed in the late 1960s when it and adjoining land was turned into a giant roundabout as part of the construction of the A56 Edenfied by-pass. The northern end of the new roundabout was photographed at the end of September 1973.

At the far side of the roundabout is Rawtenstall Library and St Mary’s Parish Church. Rawtenstall Library, designed by Crouch, Butler & Savage, Birmingham and funded by the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, first opened on 1 June 1907 and was extended in 1914. St Mary’s Church opened in 1838 although the west end and the clock tower on the south side of the church were added between 1881 and 1888.

Beyond the church is the clock tower of the former Holly Mount School which was built in 1839 to educate the children of workers at the Whitehead brothers' Lower Mill. The school building was later used as a car showroom and repair shop and in 1932 became the Astoria Dance Hall before it was demolished in the 1960s to make way for the Rawtenstall inner relief road, St Mary’s Way.

On the right in the distance is Rawtenstall Unitarian Church which opened in 1971 and was built on the site of the former Unitarian church dating from 1853 which was demolished after its structure was weakened by the construction of the St Mary’s Way.

Rawtenstall Council's original plan was to move the bus station back to the northern end of the new roundabout. Planning permission for a new bus station on the roundabout had been granted in the 1960s and a pedestrian subway was built to connect to it. However, Rawtenstall Council later decided to retain what was originally intended to be a temporary site for the bus station in Bacup Road because of concerns about the cost of the original scheme at a time when bus passenger numbers were declining and about safety due the expected high volume of traffic using the planned extension of the A56 dual carriageway north to Burnley and beyond. In the end, the A56 was rerouted past Haslingden to link up with the M65 near Hapton and the Queens Square roundabout was used by Lancashire County Council for a new fire station that was built in 1989.

Of all the philanthropists who have had an impact on the western world the most imaginative and probably the most profound donation/gift has likely been that by Andrew Carnegie. The Carnegie libraries have provided entertainment, education, enlightenment and pure pleasure to many millions throughout the world. This fine example in Cork is a good way to remember the gift that keeps on giving!

While 62 of the country's 66 Carnegie Libraries survived, today's contributors remind us that this example was one of the unlucky 4 that did not - being destroyed within a decade or so of this image during the Burning of Cork. Also some interesting discussion on whether those pictured on the balcony (and perhaps below) were library staff - with suggestions that they could have been the more senior librarians (James Wilkinson and Annie Matthews), or more junior staff of the time (James Desmond and Julia Desmond)....
