Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, born Elisabeth Bulkley Young, was an American academic and psychotherapist, who from 2007 until her death resided in Toronto, Canada. She published a wide range of books, most notably biographies of Anna Freud, her 1982 biography of Hannah Arendt won the first Harcourt Award while The Anatomy of Prejudices won the Association of American Publishers' prize for Best Book in Psychology in 1996. She was a member of the Toronto Psychoanalytic Society and co-founder of Caversham Productions, a company that makes psychoanalytic educational materials. Young-Bruehl’s family on her mother's side ran a dairy farm on land near the head of Chesapeake Bay, were active in local Maryland politics, her mother's father and grandfather had been amateur scholars with a large private library. Her maternal grandmother was a Mayflower descendant, part of the Hooker and Bulkley families of Connecticut, her father's family were Virginians, several trained in Theology at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, where the family home, the Maupin-Dixon House, is located.

She grew up in Delaware, where her father worked as a teaching golf pro. She attended Sarah Lawrence College, where she studied poetry writing with Muriel Rukeyser. Young-Bruehl left college for the New York City counterculture of the mid-1960s, but completed her undergraduate studies at The New School. There she met and married Robert Bruehl, whom she divorced. Just as the political theorist Hannah Arendt was joining the Graduate Faculty of the New School, Young-Bruehl enrolled as a Ph. D candidate in Philosophy. Arendt became Young-Bruehl's dissertation advisor. After earning her Ph. D. in 1974, Young-Bruehl took a faculty appointment the following year teaching Philosophy in the College of Letters, Wesleyan University in Connecticut. The next year, after Hannah Arendt died at 69, several of Arendt's émigré friends approached Young-Bruehl to take on the task of writing Arendt's biography; the resulting book, published in 1982, is still the standard work on Hannah Arendt's life. It has been translated into many languages, including Hebrew, a second English edition came out in 2004.

Young-Bruehl's work on the Arendt biography gave her an strong interest in psychoanalysis. In 1983, she enrolled for clinical psychoanalytic training in Connecticut. At New Haven's Child Study Center, she met several of Anna Freud's American colleagues, was invited to become Anna Freud's biographer, leading to the 1988 book "Anna Freud: A Biography"; this had a second edition in 2008, with a new Preface.

Throughout this time, she continued to publish books, including collections of her essays and the award-winning "The Anatomy of Prejudices"; the book on prejudices was followed in 2012 by "Childism: Understanding and Preventing Prejudice Against Children", published posthumously by Yale University Press.

WPXI

WPXI, virtual channel 11, is an NBC-affiliated television station licensed to Pittsburgh, United States. The station is owned by Atlanta-based Cox Media Group. WPXI's offices and studios are located on Evergreen Road in the Summer Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, its transmitter is located on Television Hill in the Fineview section of the city, on the site of the station's original studio location. On cable, WPXI is carried on Comcast Xfinity channels 12 and 811, Verizon FiOS channels 11 and 511. On September 1, 1957, Pittsburgh's second commercial VHF station signed on as WIIC; the station's construction permit was issued by the Federal Communications Commission in June 1955 to WIIC Incorporated – a joint venture of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which owned WWSW radio, Pittsburgh Radio Supply House, the then-owners of WJAS radio. Both radio stations had competed individually for the permit grant along with other applicants. CBS, looking to gain its own full-time affiliate in the market, signed a contract with the then-unnamed channel 11 shortly thereafter.

Before the "freeze" on television station licenses, the two stations were competing for the channel 10 license assigned to Pittsburgh before the FCC reallocated the channels in 1952, with channel 10 going to Altoona. Channel 11, did not sign on for well over two years after its permit was granted; the primary reason for the delay was on the part of WENS-TV, whose application for the permit had been denied and contested the FCC's original decision. In the interim, CBS continued to have most of its programs cleared by Westinghouse-owned KDKA-TV, at the time Pittsburgh's only commercial VHF station; when CBS decided to make KDKA-TV its full-time Pittsburgh affiliate, NBC reached a deal to affiliate with WIIC. As a condition of the license grant, WJAS radio had to be sold; the WJAS interests divested their 50 percent share of WIIC to another local broadcaster. Bill Cardille signed the station on the air. In addition to Cardille, five other announcers that were with the station when it launched in 1957 include Mal Alberts, Bob Cochran, Ed Conway, Len Johnson and Mark Schaefer.

Some of the first original programming to air on WIIC included Studio Wrestling and Chiller Theatre, both hosted by Cardille. Shortly after its sign-on, WIIC was affiliated with the NTA Film Network, sharing the affiliation with KDKA-TV, WTAE-TV, public television station WQED. In 1964, WIIC was sold to current owner Cox Enterprises; the station has been the longest running NBC affiliate under Cox's ownership after sister stations WSOC-TV in Charlotte and WSB-TV in Atlanta switched their affiliations to ABC in 1978 and 1980, respectively. In 1970, WIIC made Pittsburgh broadcasting history when Eleanor Schano became the first woman to anchor a newscast solo. Schano hosted a weekly 30-minute public affairs program called Face to Face. Around 1975, Channel 11 branded itself as "e11even". Around 1977, WIIC used the "11 Alive" moniker. WIIC carried the Operation Prime Time package in 1979. On April 20, 1981, the station's call sign was changed to WPXI. Although the station has never had the -TV suffix since adopting the WPXI call sign, the station has on occasion been marketed as WPXI-TV.

The WIIC calls in Pittsburgh were used by a low-powered independent station that ran a music video format. WPXI joined the ad hoc TV network, MGM/UA Premiere Network, with the November 10, 1984 showing of Clash of the Titans. WPXI televised the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon as the "Love Network" affiliate of the annual fundraiser for the Pittsburgh market, until the Muscular Dystrophy Association decided to move the event from syndication to ABC as the MDA Show of Strength in 2013; the local portion of the telethon continued to be hosted by Bill Cardille until 2012. In 2000, Cox Enterprises purchased WTOV in Steubenville, Ohio and WJAC-TV in Johnstown, Pennsylvania from Sunrise Television; those stations—which are NBC affiliates—often appear in channel lineups for the same viewers that watch WPXI, either by over-the-air signal or via cable provider, due to the proximity of the three stations to each other, were marketed together as a result. Cox changed the stations' on-air appearances to match WPXI's look, despite WPXI changing its own look in 2004.

WTOV still used WPXI's former look until October 2010, WJAC-TV adopted WPXI's current design in October 2011. Over the Labor Day weekend of 2007, WPXI began relocating from its longtime studios at Television Hill in Pittsburgh's Fineview neighborhood after 50 years, to a new studio facility in the city's Summer Hill neighborhood near the Parkway North; the station's transmitter tower continues to be located in the Fineview neighborhood. WPXI began broadcasting its newscasts from the Summer Hill studio

Rumah Cililitan Besar

Rumah Cililitan Besar known as Cililitan Besar or Lebak Sirih, is a former Dutch colonial country house located in Cililitan, Jakarta. It was known in Dutch as Landhuis Tjililitan Besar, it is located next to the complex of Soekanto Indonesian National Police Hospital. The architecture style of the building is a prototype for a late 19th century Dutch country house style known as the transitional Dutch Indies style; the building was the estate of Hendrik Laurens van der Crap, built circa 1775. During the World War II, the house was occupied by captain Kentaro Tanaka, commander of Kampong Makassar internment camp. After World War II, the building was used as police dormitory, left to deteriorate. Since the 1980s, the house has been reoccupied by squatters until its deteriorating condition today. Despite its status as a protected heritage of Jakarta, the structure has been left to deteriorate. Rumah Besar Cililitan was a prototype for a style known as transitional Dutch Indies style, a transitional style between earlier Dutch style country house and Indies style country house.

The structure and form of this type of country house reveals a process of gradual adaptation to the tropical climate of Indonesia. It is a two-storeyed structure, typical of its original Dutch-style house, but with large overhanging roof which projects on all sides, similar with the Javanese joglo-style roof served for Javanese noblemen; the upper floor is reached by external staircase. Tall windows with louvered shutters ensured good ventilation. Dutch Indies country houses List of colonial buildings and structures in Jakarta
