The much admired Finish thinker presents his polemical statement on the situation facing Modern architecture today. Fresh from his success from the animal exhibition, where he explores the relationships between animals and their environments, he uses this opportunity to vent thoughts which are the result of many years of careful observation and influence. Discussing the overriding visual image of modern architecture he explores the effects of this dominating style over other contemporary styles.

First published in 1996, The Eyes of the Skin has become a classic of architectural theory. It asks the far-reaching question why, when there are five senses, has one single sense – sight – become so predominant in architectural culture and design? With the ascendancy of the digital and the all-pervasive use of the image electronically, it is a subject that has become all the more pressing and topical since the first edition’s publication in the mid-1990s. Juhani Pallasmaa argues that the suppression of the other four sensory realms has led to the overall impoverishment of our built environment, often diminishing the emphasis on the spatial experience of a building and architecture’s ability to inspire, engage and be wholly life enhancing. For every student studying Pallasmaa’s classic text for the first time, The Eyes of the Skin is a revelation. It compellingly provides a totally fresh insight into architectural culture. This third edition meets readers’ desire for a further understanding of the context of Pallasmaa’s thinking by providing a new essay by architectural author and educator Peter MacKeith. This text combines both a biographical portrait of Pallasmaa and an outline of his architectural thinking, its origins and its relationship to the wider context of Nordic and European thought, past and present. The focus of the essay is on the fundamental humanity, insight and sensitivity of Pallasmaa’s approach to architecture, bringing him closer to the reader. This is illustrated by Pallasmaa’s sketches and photographs of his own work. The new edition also provides a foreword by the internationally renowned architect Steven Holl and a revised introduction by Pallasmaa himself.

В реальных изображениях лиц большие визуальные вариации, такие как различия в выражении лица, его позиции, разный масштаб и освещение, наличие преград перед лицами и другие, вызывают трудности при отличии лица от фона изображения. В результате возникают области изображений, которые неправильно распознаются как лица (ошибки первого рода), тогда как эффективность алгоритмов распознавания лиц характеризуется низким числом таких ошибок, высокой скоростью обнаружения лиц и высокой скоростью обработки изображений. Таким образом, чтобы уменьшить число описанных областей, вместо того, чтобы разрабатывать точный алгоритм обнаружения лиц, который требует больших временных затрат на работу, после первичного обнаружения лиц будет добавлен этап их валидации. В настоящей статье предлагается новый быстрый метод валидации лиц. Он состоит из двух этапов: первый – определение кожи с использованием метода анализа значений YCbCr-цвета; второй шаг – обнаружение глаз и рта с использованием каскадного подхода. На втором этапе область лица-кандидата делится на две перекрывающиеся области, одна для модели обнаружения глаз, а другая для модели обнаружения рта. Алгоритм обнаружения лиц, основанный на методе опорных векторов, использовался для сравнения с предлагаемым решением. Результаты экспериментов на наборе данных FDDB показали лучшую производительность предлагаемого метода (время валидации 2 мс по сравнению с 500 мс у алгоритма, основанного на методе опорных векторов) при схожем числе ошибок первого рода.

Once, there was a young woman who fell so deeply in love with someone she could not have that she lost all hope, and in that despairing, she threw herself into the sea, wishing it would claim her. The sea is not to be toyed with or wished upon, but that is another story. What this young woman did not know, what she did not remember is that she already belonged to the sea. She was a mermaid princess who had long ago been transformed into a human. Yet the sea remembered her as her mother took her into the depths to unbreak a heart not meant to love a mortal. But love is not fickle. It is everlasting, and even an older promise to a merman who watched her from grow up from afar and loved her beyond measure could not change fate’s decree. I should know. I was that long lost mer princess, and this is the story of my return to the mermaid realm.

Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, this volume explores representations of skin in literature, art, art history, visual media, and medicine and its history. The essays collected here probe the symbolic potential of skin as a shifting sign in various historical and cultural contexts, and also examine the material and organic properties of the body’s largest organ. They deal with skin as a sensual organ, as an interface or contact zone, as the visual marker of identity, and as a lieu de memoire in different periods and media. In its material characteristics, skin is regarded as a medium, a canvas, a surface, and an object of both artistic and medical investigations. The contributions investigate representations of skin in sculpture, painting, film, and fictional, as well as non-fictional, texts from the 16th century to the present. The topics addressed here include the problematic representation of racial identity via skin colour in various media; the sensual qualities of the skin, such as smell or taste; the form and function of tattoos as markers of personal, as well as collective, identity; and scars as signifiers of personal pain and collective suffering.

THE SUN, THE SOAP DEALERS, AND THE WASHING MACHINE, Rogelio Garcia Barcala's follow up to both "We are carrying a Tree Right in Front of our Face", and "The Doldrums, Christ, and the Plantanism" is a real jewel in the field of biology. I was reading this book with an enormous interest. Rogelio Garcia Barcala is one of the best philosophers we have in this country, at least in the particular field of biology. This book is full of surprises. Rogelio Garcia Barcala not only is an excellent writer, and a great biologist, he is a discoverer. "The Sun, the Soap Dealers, and the Washing Machine" discovers a whole new world in the field of biology. Now we know why we "breathe, why our "brain" is called "brain", and why the "branches" of a tree are called "branches". This book comes up with so many novelties that makes you tremble. M.

With richly colorful photos and compelling, informative descriptions, John and Deborah Behler have carefully crafted a wonderful tribute to the amazingly complex frog. With decades of expertise in conservation, the Behlers are unequaled in their ability to capture the wild and ever-changing world of these amphibians—all 5,000 species. They reveal an unexpected diversity of form, lifestyle, and ecology, and take readers on a magical journey that makes vibrantly clear why these creatures are so important. Breathtaking and brilliant images show tadpoles in water and on leaves; a many-hued variety of frogs (bright blue, golden yellow and black, red and turquoise) in their environment; African sand frogs and chirping frogs; Oriental fire-bellied frogs; and tiny three-toed toadlets—among the smallest that exist. It’s a vision not to be missed.

This is the real deal now—I am not trying to persuade anyone or change their minds. I am simply telling the truth! This is... The inside on the forgotten and taboo cultural history and the forgotten art of respect for one another and the inside views and explanations of people of mixed heritages and their life encounters, how other ethnic groups treat one another, and how they think of other groups in society. The ugly truth about man and prejudice as well as how to love and accept other cultures, what to do with your mixed child’s hair and skin care products, as well as important people in each of the main cultures of whites, blacks, Asians, Native Americans, and Hispanics. People you never heard of that made great contributions to our present day world, as well as women who, against the odds of man, contributed greatly to our present-day society. Women who were told not to do so, but they did it with determination and courage! Experience the hidden secret of each culture that can only be shared and protected by that culture as a group. A glossary of the meanings of words in the book, as well as every ethnic derogatory word from A to Z.
