Aspect ratio

The aspect ratio of a geometric shape is the ratio of its sizes in different dimensions. For example, the aspect ratio of a rectangle is the ratio of its longer side to its shorter side – the ratio of width to height, when the rectangle is oriented as a "landscape"; the aspect ratio is most expressed as two integer numbers separated by a colon, less as a simple or decimal fraction. The values x and y do not represent actual widths and heights but, the proportion between width and height; as an example, 8:5, 16:10, 1.6:1, ​8⁄5 and 1.6 are all ways of representing the same aspect ratio. In objects of more than two dimensions, such as hyperrectangles, the aspect ratio can still be defined as the ratio of the longest side to the shortest side; the term is most used with reference to: Graphic / image Image aspect ratio Display aspect ratio Paper size Standard photographic print sizes Motion picture film formats Standard ad size Pixel aspect ratio Photolithography: the aspect ratio of an etched, or deposited structure is the ratio of the height of its vertical side wall to its width.

A square has the smallest possible aspect ratio of 1:1. Examples: 4:3 = 1.3: Some 20th century computer monitors, standard-definition television √2:1 = 1.414...: international paper sizes 3:2 = 1.5: 35mm still camera film, iPhone displays 16:10 = 1.6: used widescreen computer displays Φ:1 = 1.618...: golden ratio, close to 16:10 5:3 = 1.6: super 16 mm, a standard film gauge in many European countries 16:9 = 1.7: widescreen TV 2:1 = 2: dominoes 64:27 = 2.370:1 32:9 = 3.5:1 For an ellipse, the aspect ratio denotes the ratio of the major axis to the minor axis. An ellipse with an aspect ratio of 1:1 is a circle. In geometry, there are several alternative definitions to aspect ratios of general compact sets in a d-dimensional space: The diameter-width aspect ratio of a compact set is the ratio of its diameter to its width.

A circle has the minimal DWAR, 1. A square has a DWAR of sqrt; the cube-volume aspect ratio of a compact set is the d-th root of the ratio of the d-volume of the smallest enclosing axes-parallel d-cube, to the set's own d-volume. A square has the minimal CVAR, 1. A circle has a CVAR of sqrt. An axis-parallel rectangle of width W and height H, where W>H, has a CVAR of sqrt = sqrt. If the dimension d is fixed all reasonable definitions of aspect ratio are equivalent to within constant factors. Aspect ratios are mathematically expressed as x:y. Cinematographic aspect ratios are denoted as a decimal multiple of width vs unit height, while photographic and videographic aspect ratios are defined and denoted by whole number ratios of width to height. In digital images there is a subtle distinction between the display aspect ratio and the storage aspect ratio.

Giwargis I

Giwargis I was patriarch of the Church of the East from 661 to 680. Brief accounts of Giwargis's patriarchate are given in the Ecclesiastical Chronicle of the Jacobite writer Bar Hebraeus and in the ecclesiastical histories of the Nestorian writers Mari, ʿAmr and Sliba. A fuller account of the reign of Giwargis, describing in detail his quarrel with the metropolitan Giwargis of Nisibis, who opposed his election, is given by Thomas of Marga in his Book of Governors. Thomas drew on a lost ecclesiastical history of the Church of the East written by Athqen, a monk of the monastery of Mar Abraham on Mount Izla. Giwargis held a synod at Dairin in Beth Qatraye in 676 to reconcile the bishops of Beth Qatraye with the metropolitan of Fars; the acts of this synod have survived, their Syriac text was published with a French translation in J. B. Chabot's Synodicon Orientale; the following account of Giwargis's patriarchate is given by Bar Hebraeus: At that time there died Ishoʿyahb III, the catholicus of the Nestorians, succeeded at Seleucia by his disciple Giwargis.

He made a tour of the regions, anxious to restore ecclesiastical matters, while his enemies accused him to the emir of the Arabs of touring the regions to collect money. The emir therefore demanded money from him, when he refused to give it, did not give it after suffering torture and imprisonment, the indignant emir destroyed many churches at ʿAqula and throughout the region of Hirta. In the time of Giwargis the doctor Yohannan, bishop of Beth Waziq, cut off his members after he was accused of fornication, was condemned all the more and deposed. Of his time, John bar Penkaye wrote: "This period of calm was to us the cause of so much weakness, that there happened to us what happened to the Israelites, of whom it is said: “Israel has grown fat and lazy, he has become fat and wealthy, he has abandoned the God who made him, despised the strong one that saved him.” The westerners, it is true, clung to their sacrilegious, but we who believe we adhere to the true faith, we were so far from the works of Christians, that if one of the former had risen and had seen us, he would have had been dizzy and said: “this is not the faith in which I died.”"

Bar Penkaye hits "the leaders" under Muawiyah - which can only be Giwargis - for arrogance, for greed, for gluttony, for involvement in politics, for bribing the secular authorities.

Weston-super-Mare (UK Parliament constituency)

Weston-super-Mare is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament since 2005 by John Penrose, a Conservative. The seat was created under the Representation of the People Act 1918, its forerunner was the North Somerset division created in 1885. The by-election of 1934 was triggered by the acceptance of the appointment of Lord Erskine to the position of Governor of Madras Presidency, that of 1958 by the death of Ian Orr-Ewing and that of 1969 by the death of David Webster following an accident. Political historyThe seat has alternated in representation between 1992 and 2005: in the election of 1997 the fresh Conservative candidate, Margaret Daly failed to hold the seat which led to Weston Super Mare's first marginal majority since 1923, obtained by Brian Cotter, a Liberal Democrat. Since this date all of the majorities have been lower than 3,000 votes, remaining marginal and seeing in 2005 Cotter lose the seat to John Penrose. FrontbenchersJerry Wiggin was a Minister for the Armed Services from 1981–1983.

Brian Cotter was the Liberal Democrat Small Business Spokesman, John Penrose was appointed the Minister for Tourism and Heritage. 1918–1950: The Urban Districts of Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare, the Rural Districts of Axbridge and Long Ashton. 1950–1983: The Municipal Borough of Weston-super-Mare, the Urban District of Clevedon, the Rural District of Axbridge, in the Rural District of Long Ashton the parishes of Kenn, Kingston Seymour, Yatton. 1983–1997: The District of Woodspring wards of Banwell, Churchill, Hutton, Weston-super-Mare Ashcombe, Weston-super-Mare East, Weston-super-Mare Ellenborough, Weston-super-Mare North, Weston-super-Mare South, Weston-super-Mare Uphill, Weston-super-Mare West, Winscombe and Yatton. 1997–2010: The District of Woodspring wards of Banwell, Churchill, Hutton, Weston-super-Mare Ashcombe, Weston-super-Mare East, Weston-super-Mare Ellenborough, Weston-super-Mare North, Weston-super-Mare South, Weston-super-Mare Uphill, Weston-super-Mare West, Winscombe. 2010–present: The District of North Somerset wards of Banwell and Winscombe and Churchill, Congresbury and Locking, Weston-super-Mare Central, Weston-super-Mare Clarence and Uphill, Weston-super-Mare East, Weston-super-Mare Milton and Old Worle, Weston-super-Mare North Worle, Weston-super-Mare South, Weston-super-Mare South Worle, Weston-super-Mare West.

The constituency covers the southern half of North Somerset Unitary Authority, including its only town, Weston-super-Mare on the Bristol Channel. Changes for 1950Under the first periodic review the Weston constituency lost Portishead, Nailsea and Long Ashton wards/areas to North Somerset constituency. Changes for 1983Under the third periodic review the Weston constituency lost Berrow, Brent Knoll, Axbridge and Mark and Wedmore wards to Wells, Clevedon to Woodspring which temporarily took the place of North Somerset until 2010. Changes for 1997Under the fourth periodic review the Weston constituency lost Yatton and Wrington to Woodspring. Changes for 2010Parliament accepted the Boundary Commission's Fifth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies by making slight changes to this constituency for the 2010 general election, namely the loss of only 181 electors in Butcombe to North Somerset; the town grew as a late-Victorian affluent resort with many green spaces and gardens south of the headland, Sand Point which denotes the sandier beach of the town and of Burnham on Sea relative to northerly shores such as at Clevedon.

Work in tourism and visitor attractions is seasonal but other areas of the economy locally, such as customer services operations, freight and distribution, care and health services as well as retail and materials/foods processing provide employment. Workless claimants who were registered jobseekers were in November 2012 lower than the national average of 3.8%, at 3.5% of the population based on a statistical compilation by The Guardian.

A bēot is Old English for a ritualized boast, threat, or promise. The principle of a bēot is to proclaim one's acceptance of a impossible challenge in order to gain tremendous glory for accomplishing it. Anglo-Saxon warriors would deliver bēots in the mead hall the night before a military engagement or during the battle itself. For example, a typical warrior may boast that he will be the first to strike a blow in a battle, that he would claim a renowned sword from an enemy warrior as spoil of battle, that he will slay a particular monster, wreaking havoc on a town or village, so on. Bēots were accompanied by grand stories of one's past glorious deeds. Although other cultures and times might disdain boasting as a sign of arrogance, or sinful pride, the pagan Anglo-Saxons regarded such behavior as a positive sign of one's determination and character. Examples of the bēot can be seen throughout the epic poem Beowulf, such as when Beowulf vows to fight Grendel without using any weapons or armor.

The Old English word bēot comes from earlier bíhát meaning ‘promise’. The original noun-form of bēot corresponds to the verb bi-, be-ˈhátan. A shifting of the stress from bíhát to bi-ˈhát, on analogy of the verb, gave the late Old English beˈhát, from which the Middle English word behote derives. Pledge - The individual pledges to endeavor a specific challenge Speculation of outcomes - The individual predicts two possible outcomes—success or failure—and elaborates the effects of either outcome. Commissioning to a higher power - The individual commissions the outcome of the challenge to a higher power. Beowulf Boast Weregild Wyrd
