Extractions: a thousand years. National culture was born of influences of the Latin and the Byzantine worlds, and from a dialogue between ethnic minorities in Poland. The Poles have always welcomed foreign artists and been eager to follow what was happening in other countries. In the 19th and 20th centuries Poles' concentration on cultural development often took the place of political and economic activity. These factors contributed to the versatile character of Polish art, with all its complex nuances. Dialogue and the interpenetration of cultures have been major characteristics of Polish tradition for centuries. Customs, manners, clothes have reflected the influences of east and west. Traditional costumes worn by the gentry in the 16th and 17th centuries were inspired by rich eastern ornamental styles, including Islamic influences. Polish cuisine and social mores are another reflection of these various influences. Polish towns reflect the whole spectrum of European styles. Poland's eastern frontiers marked the boundary of the influences of Western architecture on the continent. History has not been kind to Poland's architectural monuments. However, a number of ancient edifices have survived: castles, churches and palaces, sometimes unique in the regional or European context. Some of them have been laboriously restored (the Royal Castle in Cracow), or completely reconstructed having been totally ruined in the last war (the Old Town and Royal Castle in Warsaw, the Old Town in Gdansk and Wroclaw). Kazimierz on the Vistula is an example of

As patrons walk the golf course, they will be able to access the Sun scoring kiosks to see up-to-the-minute scores of every player in the field, biographical information on all players, 3-D views of every hole and green via virtual reality fly-over shots, full motion video highlights, and detailed statistical data on every player. As the official scorer of the 1999 Sprint International, Sun will have 125 computerized scoring kiosks at key tournament locations. Spectators will be able to follow the tournament in real-time, with user-friendly features, at kiosks located in the International Village between the 9th and 18th fairways, the 15th and 16th greens, and at the 18th green. Scoring kiosks will also be available in the media center, clubhouse, locker room, and hospitality areas. "The Sprint International's modified Stableford scoring is unique to the PGA TOUR," said Tournament Executive Director Larry Thiel. "So the new computerized scoring system and software produced by Sun Microsystems is the perfect enhancement because it affords the spectators a one-of-a-kind system which keeps them current at all times during tournament play. There is nothing quite like it in golf."

Extractions: How the American Urban Design Foundation Began Noticing other countries' efforts to commemorate the Millennium by building permanent structures, Rodney Cook, Jr., had the idea to create a Millennium Monument in the United States. Mr. Cook also saw this as an opportunity to further the cause of classical architecture and renew the prospects of the area around the monument site. Since Washington, D.C. was conceived as a city of monuments and had neighborhoods in need of renewal, Mr. Cook immediately thought of locating the Millennium Monument in or near Washington. Classical Architecture: Context for the Initial Proposal The Prince of Wales at the opening of his first American school in Asheville, North Carolina. Through the early 1990s, the Prince of Wales's Institute of Architecture was one of only a few institutions in the world with a curriculum focused on classical architecture. Upon the demise of the Institute, representatives of leading architecture schools met in spring 1998 to decide how to fill the void. This ad-hoc gathering was dubbed the Hastings Council since it met in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. The Newington- Cropsey Museum provided the venue as a courtesy to Mr. Cook, who had designed the museum building.

Extractions: I've always been disinterested in American architecture. It seems we often sacrifice artistic freedom to functionality and cost. I never knew that there is a lot to learn and study in American architecture and that simply by virtue of being practical the architecture says something about us. Mulling that over, I've come to realize that some architecture is definitely art and some is definitely not, but that both types reflect on their culture and should be studied. In college, I delved into art classes, thinking deeply about art and what it means to the spirit of manthat the humanities are a large part of what being human is all about. Charlotte Mason knew this. She celebrated the humanities. She celebrated the beautiful things manmade and in nature. Many architects are artists at heart and their work can be studied as we would study a famous artist such as Van Gogh.

Extractions: The beginning of the architecture are noted by the prehistoric dwelling houses (before 5 century BC), discovered in Dunavec (a water-side house) that belongs to the medium neolith, and in Maliq, that belongs to the late neolith. These houses were constructed upon a wood floor, rested on stakes driven vertically into the ground. The prehistoric dwelling houses are classified in three groups such as The fortified centres seemed to have an architectonical unity, both in terms of land location and in the planimetry solutions. Changing its role from pre-urban shelters into real urban centres, these fortifications develop their architectonic shapes and solutions as well as the construction technique. These constructions represent the prologue of the antique fortifications.

Traditional crafts, thatched houses, attractive unspoiled villages, ancient and historic monuments and a richly varied countryside provides the visitor with an intriguing insight into Poland's varied history as well as traditions. In the south of the Lublin region there are fertile Lublin uplands of the Roztocze area, cut by numerous ravines. In the north you can find the Masovia and Podlaskie lowlands covered by dense forests. Crisscrossing the region are numerous rivers of which the Vistula and Bug are the most notable. The Vistula Gorge between Kazimierz and Pulawy offers the visitor a wonderful opportunity to view the river at its scenic, whilst there are numerous other points of interest to be found, of which the section of the Bug close to the village of Serpelice should not be missed. The beautiful Poleski National Park to the north west of the region lies partly in the Leczna-Wlodawa Lake District. Several dozen lakes big and small have been preserved in their natural state offering both recreational opportunities and spectacular views. This area's varied scenary encompasses dense forests, widespread meadows and peat bogs with unusual preserved plants, a number of which can only be seen elsewhere in the nothern tundra of the Arctic Circle. The area is also an ornithologists' delight with a wide variety of birdlife.

Among many other topics the President specifically described Belarusian foreign policy and indicated its priorities. He stated that during the ten years of the independence Belarus has evolved as a peaceful, stable, neutral and democratic state that is developing its relations with foreign countries and international organizations on the basis of equal and mutually beneficial cooperation. Belarus is interested in further development of its relations with other countries of Europe and in participation in the European integration processes, cooperation with the European Union, OSCE, the Council of Europe and NATO. Mr. Lukashenko stated that Belarus is interested in strengthening of the bilateral cooperation with the United States of America and is always ready for the dialog based on mutual respect and aimed on the achievement of the common goals. The President touched upon the problem of terrorism, saying that there is no place for terrorism in international relations and in life at all. He believes that should be established a new level of cooperation between the countries of the world, either large or small, that would be aimed at elimination of the terrorism and eradication of its causes (poverty, unemployment, degradation of morale, extremism, etc).

A very nice dual-level property located across the street from Bali's Kuta Beach, and right next door to the incredible Hard Rock Beach Club resort hotel. The lower level is a Hard Rock Live! venue with live music nightly. I was lucky enough to be here for the festivities of their 7th anniversary, which culminated in a great live show and a menu roll-back with the cheapest prices I've ever paid for food at a HRC! Unfortunately, they didn't yet have a pin to mark the occasion, which was a really stupid oversight. The bar here has a really cool giant guitar overhead, with the "hands of God" (modeled from Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel) painted on the dome above, ready to start rockin'! Excellent service.

And Inglesis work fitted into the spaces as if it had been made for them. Nothing seems, however, to be consistent in the image: the swaying movement of the body, and the lush orange-coloured hair, contrast starkly with her flattened, shrivelling arms; the dry branches she wields in her hands look like some medieval weapons; her doll-like form rises from, or merges into, a rocky formation even as an elegant purse is slung across her body, resting against a firm thigh. Dali-like, the painter throws out suggestions in everyone of these frames: Taurus, Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, and the like, all partaking of the same intriguing quality, cutting across time, fitting into a new space.
