Edificio La Inmobiliaria de 1910 proyectado por el arquitecto Luigi Broggi. Emblemática obra de la tradicional Avenida de Mayo en Buenos Aires.
Boceto incompleto de una vista lateral de 1982. Copia de un original perdido.
En 1978, cuatro años antes de este dibujo, cursando el primer año de arquitectura, plena dictadura militar y antes del mundial de fútbol, me encontraba yo esperando a una chica bajo la línea de proyección de la primera cornisa de este edificio, cuando por conjura impiadosa de los demonios del averno, las pacificas y bellas palomas cagaron estrepitosamente sobre mi cabeza, poniendo en riesgo el encuentro amoroso. Aprendí ese día a mirar hacia arriba prudentemente.
The perpetrator of the shootings was Robert A. Hawkins, 19 (May 17, 1988 – December 5, 2007). He was born in the Royal Air Force Lakenheath of Suffolk, England, to American parents Ronald Hawkins and Maribel “Molly” Rodriguez.
He was estranged from his parents and lived with two friends and their mother in a ranch-style house in the Quail Creek Neighborhood of Bellevue, a suburb 10 miles (16 km) south of Omaha. He was attending therapy sessions, taking medication and being hospitalized for depression by the time he was 6 years old.
Throughout most of his life, he and his family were plagued by his psychiatric problems. The day after he turned 14, he was sent to a mental health treatment center for threatening to kill his stepmother Candace Hawkins with an axe. Four months later, he became a ward of the State of Nebraska, which lasted nearly four years. He had undergone two psychiatric hospitalizations, and was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, an unspecified mood disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and parent-child relationship problems. His extensive treatments cost the state USD$265,000.
He attended Papillion-La Vista High School and later dropped out during his senior year in March 2006, but received a GED. Debora Maruca-Kovac, the owner of the house in which Hawkins lived, described him as “troubled”. She also stated that he was depressed over being fired from his job at McDonald’s, reportedly for stealing USD$17, and over separating from his girlfriend two weeks prior to the incident.
Hawkins was ticketed on November 24, 2007, for suspicion of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and two alcohol charges, one of which was underage possession of alcohol. He was due in court for an arraignment on December 19, 2007. According to local news sources, he threatened to kill a local teenager, because he thought she had stolen his CD player. He was also convicted as a juvenile of a felony drug conviction while in foster care in Omaha.
The Smoking Gun released a copy of Hawkins’ three-page suicide note which consisted of a note to his family, one to his friends, and his last will and testament, below which he signed his name and included his Social Security number. Initial news reports indicated that Hawkins wrote in his suicide note, “I’m going out in style;” however, the phrase does not appear on the publicly released document.
The day after the shooting, the Hawkins family released a statement expressing their condolences for the victims. On December 13, 2007, Hawkins’ mother issued a formal apology for Hawkins’ actions in an interview on Good Morning America.
Okay so, a few weeks ago I made my first “Find A Dragon” thread. I’m very shy and don’t post a lot on the forums, but I worked up the nerve to ask for dragons of that hatch date and everything was going pretty well! My only requirement was the dragons be born on that day, no basic genes & no male PCs, so my thread was really active since I didn’t have a lot of specifics. (12+ pages by the end)
Here’s where it went downhill. Someone posted a male Pearlcatcher, double basic. Already a no, but I realized he was already grown up, so I checked and he wasn’t even born on the day I was asking for. Okay, no big deal, right? Just ignore and move on.
Pretty soon, I got a PM & a CR from this same person saying they had written a full bio for the dragon and they were sending it over for 50 gems. ??????????????? WHY. How dense do you have to be?! I canceled the CR and told them I wasn’t interested, even included a good, calm explanation that I had THREE SIMPLE SPECIFICATIONS and he was exactly ZERO of them.
A few hours later, another (1-way this time) CR and a CR message begging me to just take him since they worked so hard on his lore just for me and they didn’t want their work going to waste. It isn’t my fault, though!! I didn’t ask them for anything! I’m so confused and angry about this at that point, I take the dragon, level it, and exalt it. Hasta la vista.
The film begins in the London nursery of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, where the three children are visited by Peter Pan. With the help of his tiny friend, the fairy Tinkerbell, Peter takes the three children on a magical flight to Never Land. This enchanted island is home to Peter, Tink, the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily and her Native American nation, and the scheming Captain Hook who is as intent on defeating Peter Pan as he is from escaping a tick-tocking crocodile.
Peter Pan was originally intended to be Disney’s second film after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. However he could not get the rights until four years later, after he came to an arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, to whom Barrie had bequeathed the rights to the play. The studio started the story development and character designs in the late 1930s and early 1940s, and intended it to be his fourth film, after Snow White, Bambi and Pinocchio.
During this time Disney explored many possibilities of how the story could be interpreted. In the earliest version of the story, the film started by telling Peter Pan’s back story. Walt also explored opening the film in Neverland and Peter Pan coming to Wendy’s house to kidnap her as a mother for the Lost Boys. Eventually, Disney decided that the kidnapping was too dark. In another version of the film, Nana went to Neverland with Pan and the Darling children, and the story was told through her eyes. In other interpretations of the story John Darling was left behind for being too serious, practical and boring.
It was not until 1947, as the studio’s financial health started to improve again after WWII, that the actual production of Peter Pan commenced, even though Roy O. Disney did not think that Peter Pan would have much box office appeal.\
Milt Kahl, the supervising animator of Peter Pan and The Darling Children, claimed that the hardest thing to animate was a character floating in mid air.
Rumor has it that Tinker Bell’s design was based on Marilyn Monroe, but in reality her design was based on Tinker Bell’s live-action reference model, Margaret Kerry. Margaret Kerry posed for reference film shots on a sound stage; the footage was later used by supervising Tinker Bell animator Marc Davis and his team when they drew the character. Like Kerry, Bobby Driscoll was both the live-action reference model, mainly used for the close-up scenes, and the voice actor for Peter Pan. Peter’s flying and action reference shots, however, were provided by dancer and choreographer Roland Dupree. Similarly, Hans Conried, the voice of both Captain Hook and Mr. Darling, also performed the live-action reference footage for those characters (it was one of the few elements left over from the play, that Hook and Mr. Darling were played by the same actor).
The film was a commercial success and was also the highest-grossing film of 1953. In 1955, it was reported that the film had earned $7 million against its budget of $4 million. Peter Pan was praised by most critics during its initial release. The New York Times gave the film a mixed review, praising the animation itself, but also declaring that the film was not really true to the spirit of the original Barrie play. Walt Disney himself was dissatisfied with the finished product, feeling that the character of Peter Pan was cold and unlikable. However, experts on J.M. Barrie praise this as a success, as they insist that Pan was originally written to be a heartless sociopath.
Peter Pan has been seen as racist in recent years due to the way Disney portrayed the Native American “Indians” in the film. They are displayed as wild, savage, violent and speak in a stereotypical way. These stereotypes are present in J. M. Barrie’s play. Marc Davis, one of the supervising animators of the film, said in an interview years after the production that ‘I’m not sure we would have done the Indians if we were making this movie now. And if we had we wouldn’t do them the way we did back then.’”
I don't really understand how to download Paint Tool Sai, the website was pretty confusing (at least to me, and I'm incompetent when it comes to pretty much everything) so if you could help that'd be great thanks!
OK, let me go take a look…
So, we’re all on the same page here, [THIS] is the official site. Scroll down, until you see this: (you don’t have to, I copied and pasted it right here :D)
PaintTool SAI (Full installation) (Ver.1.2.0, Installer, 2014-03-10, 2.4M) For new users, all required files of PaintTool SAI are
included in this installer. In the first time, SAI will automatically start setup
process, this will take a few minutes. SAI will start without setup
process from the second time.
PaintTool SAI (Update files only) (Ver.1.2.0, Installer, 2014-03-10, 1.2M) This installer contains minimum update files for previous version users, you can use this update overwriting all extracted files to the existing application folder.
The first one is for first-time users who have never had sai installed. The second one is for those who already have an older version that they wish to update.
NOW. I’m going through the “Installation Note”. Because… that’s probably the part that’s got you all confused, and I can see why X,x‘‘
Ver.1.2.0 full installer will install SAI into “C:\PaintToolSAI” in
default settings. You can preserve brushes, textures, swatch and license
certificate through which of following way.
Overwrite Ver.1.2.0 to Ver.1.1.0 folder by installer of update files only.
Copy all folders, *.conf files, *.ssd files, *.slc file from Ver.1.1.0 folder to Ver.1.2.0 folder
Downloading and installing the “full installation” will overwrite everything in your current sai folder (if you have one). This means losing any resources you may have downloaded or created yourself. So like, brushes, textures, swatches, and, most importantly, your license
certificate, GONE. ALL GONE. FOREVER.
If you don’t want to lose these things, you have the option of either downloading and installing via the “update files only“ link - OR - you can copy the individual file folders over to a new folder, then once you’ve installed the “full installation”, recopy them back. (Uh, option one is a lot easier and what I would recommend, if I had an old version already. Option two leaves too many chances for human error.)
On Windows Vista or later, please avoid installation into “Program
Files” folder because SAI may take malfunctions through the influence of
If you’re using windows VISTA or anything newer, do NOT install the program into “C:\Program Files” because the dark lord of the underworld himself will come and take you to the darkest pits of hell and make you walk up an endless staircase with an old person directly in front of you and an old person directly behind you for all of eternity.
(there is a windows timeline [here], if you’re not sure where your version stands.)
By default, the program should go to “C:\PaintToolSAI”. Should. But check to be sure that is in fact where it’s trying to install. Because sometimes things don’t do what they should do.
Uh… I’m not sure if that helped any… but um, good luck.
