Extractions: BACK THE BEAUTY OF KAOHSIUNG Since 1949,there had already been sprinkling pitches gathered here in the Liu-Ho 2nd Road. The government of Kaohsiung City established a temporary concentration area for pitches in 1962. And further in 1987, the government began practicing "pedestrian walk" (which all vehicles are banned from entering) during the business hour from 18:00 to midnight. Today, the Liu-Ho Night Market has become a very famous sight in the Kaohsiung city. It's not only a good place for citizens' daily diet, but a great gourmet paradise for people from all the island, even from other countries, to enjoy the civic life pleasure. The Liu-Ho Night Market, located in the center of downtown, about 10 minutes walk to the Kaohsiung Railway Station, with 138 pitches opening all night long, is the most significant and fascinating sight in the Kaohsiung metropolis for over 50 years. The Old Castle of Fengshan Hsien (Chiucheng) After Chu I-kwei Incident in the early Ching Dynasty, Liu Kuang-shy, the Magistrate of Fengshan, built a clay Castle wall in 1722, whose circumference was 2,454 meters, and the height was 4 meters. The wall had four gates, each at east, west, south and north side. It was the formal scope of Fengshan Hsien Castle, and was the first clay castle built in Taiwan. In 1786, the castle was destroyed during Lin Swang-wen Uprising in which many officials and soldiers were killed. Since inside of the castle could be clearly observed from nearby Panping (half screen) Mountain and Snake Mountain was not easy for defense, relocation of Hsien capital was planned and a bamboo castle was erected at Pitou Chie (presently Fengshan City).

Extractions: Research Resources in Hungary Museums, collections, archives, databases, universities Hungary's main museums all have rich medieval holdings, and there are a number of specialized collections as well. Most of these are public institutions, which means that you can generally do research in their archives and even see items not exhibited after some advance correspondence. Major libraries, archives and photo collections are similarly accessible, but permission is often needed to see special items, or if you want to use smaller collections. To do research on the art of medieval Hungary, you also have to use the museums and collections in the neighboring countries. Slovakia and Transylvania in Romania, as parts of the former Hungarian kingdom, are particularly rich in medieval monuments.

Folklore Videos UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE SPI CASTLE The first time I saw the Spi's Castle I must have been a little boy, too small to remember. Then when I was a bit older, during the summer school breaks I used to hitch hike around the country and went to see the castle on several occasions. Then after nineteen years of absence I have seen the castle again. One can't imagine how huge this structure is, as this is the largest Royal Gothic castle in Central Europe. Its site has been inhabited since the 5th millennium BC. Large part of the castle has been renovated and turned into a museum and the restoration continues. Spi ranks among the most remarkable Slovak regions. It covers the north-western part of the Eastern Slovakia Region. It abounds not only in Nature's beauties but also in the preserved medieval art-historical monuments, mostly from the Gothic period, that occupy an important place in European context. Nearly in all the villages and small towns we can find a worthy sacral or secular architecture, precious winged altars, interesting objects of arts and crafts or valuable frescos. Since the 12th century the country is dominated by the Spi Castle, once the seat of the high-ranking Hungarian aristocratic families and custodians, the castle has been a symbol of the Spi Region.
Extractions: This document describes the system architecture of the RS/6000 Enterprise Server Model S80. Special attention in this edition is given to the newly developed copper technology RS64 III processor. The major components; processors, memory, I/O subsystem, and the interconnecting buses are all described. Most of the components used are new designs and contribute to the continued outstanding balanced performance, reliability, and scalability of the "S" family of RS/6000 systems. Introduction The IBM RS/6000 S family consists of the new S80 and the earlier S70 and S70 Advanced Systems. The S family is IBM's RS/6000 symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) server family for high-end commercial performance. In addition, it is ideally poised for the future in that it supports both 32-bit and 64-bit applications running concurrently. It uses the new copper technology enhanced PowerPC RS64 III processor and is offered in 6-, 12-, 18-, and 24-way configurations. The S80 also includes a greatly enhanced set of central electronic complex (CEC) support logic. More specifically, the memory controller complex was dramatically updated. The S family was the first RS/6000 system to exploit the true 64-bit large memory addressing capabilities of AIX 4.3. The S family also has a rich set of reliability features.
