Odzun Church

Odzun Church is an Armenian basilica constructed around the 5th–7th century in the Odzun village of the Lori Province of Armenia. The first church appeared here in the 6th century. In the 8th century it was reconstructed by Hovhannes III Odznetsi who served as the katholikos between 717 and 728 and was, as his name suggests, from Odzun; this is the time the church got its current form of a pink felsite basilica with three naves, the two side naves being narrow. At the northern and southern side there are unusual arcaded cloisters and the west cloister has a blind wall with an arched entrance in the middle; the roof is barrel vaulted. Four columns support the rib vaulted tambour and there are two more columns at the western part of the church. At the eastern façade above the central window one can observe a carving of Christ with the gospel of St. John and two angels below. At the southern façade, at each side of the central window there are two angels and traces of another figure Christ. Much in the 19th century two small bell towers were added.

The church was renovated between 2012 and 2014. There are numerous gravestones of the clergy around the church, as well as a funerary monument, its stepped platform supports two carved stelae, each within one of a set of double arches. The east and west sides of the monument are carved with scenes from the Bible and introduction of Christianity in Armenia, its north and south side are carved with floral shapes. It is suggested that this monument commemorates Hovhannes Odznetsi, but its style suggests that it was erected earlier, in the 6th century; this is one of only two such funerary monuments in Armenia. The one located in Odzun was given as a gift to Armenia from an Indian king around the 8th century; the other one is situated in Aghudi in southern Armenian province of Syunik.

Black Killer

Black Killer is a 1971 Italian Spaghetti Western film directed by Carlo Croccolo and starring Klaus Kinski. James Webb arrives to town with a casket full of books, he discovers that the judge co-operates with the wanted O'Hara brothers, who make farmers sign over their land deeds and kill them. The deeds are deposited with the judge. Webb, who has presented himself to the judge as a lawyer, finds that since these deeds are not registered they will forfeit to the judge if the O'Haras are killed; the O'Haras suspect Webb to be a government agent, but they intercept and kill the real agent. They raid town and kill the sheriff in anger when they don't get enough protection money. Burt Collins arrives in town and asks for his brother Peter, who lives outside town with his Native American wife, Sarah, he kills two of O'Hara's men. He seems willing to follow the advice of Ramon O'Hara to leave in the morning, but Webb visits his hotel room to suggest a plan. In the morning Burt kills them. Webb has earlier convinced the judge that according to the law he must become sheriff if none is appointed, Burt is offered to become sheriff instead of standing trial.

He accepts and the judge suggests that they share the land 50-50. The O'Haras are told, they capture the brothers when they come out. Burt is beaten unconscious and Peter is killed when he tries to stop them from raping Sarah, they set fire to the house. Burt and Sarah now avenge themselves on the O’Hara gang, they get information from a young woman who works at the saloon. In the morning after the gang’s celebration at the saloon one of the malefactors is killed by gunshots from Burt and by an arrow from Sarah; the O’Haras have Consuela taken to a mine to serve as bait to catch Burt. Burt and Sarah kill the guards with knife, they enter the cave and kill the gang member, in the process of raping Consuela, but the girl is killed by a stray bullet. Sarah and Burt kill the guards at the O'Hara ranch with snare, they hang one of the guards outside the window to make the men come out. Inside, Burt confronts Pedro O’Hara in the darkness of a closed room; when a man opens the door he is killed with him. Outside Sarah kills men with a rifle, until they run away, leaving Miguel O'Hara.

She shoots an arrow with burning dynamite. After the explosion he cries that he is blind and falls down. Webb accuses the judge, who offers him 50%; when the offer is refused he takes a gun from his drawer but is killed by Webb with a gun concealed in a book. Webb takes papers and money, he is surprised by Sarah, sent by Burt to detain him, but he tricks her, takes her gun and ties her up. Burt arrives into town with the bodies of the O'Haras and offers Ramon a choice between the gun and jail, he shoots another man coming down the stairs. The two now come out in the street, where O'Hara uses a hayfork. Webb shoots down two O'Hara henchmen from the roof. Ramon is shot by a gun that Webb throws to Burt. Citizens gather around the corpses. Webb gives Burt the deeds taken from Wilson. Sarah arrives with a gun. Burt calms her, but still he arrests Webb for the murder of the judge, cuffs him to take him to a judge in Canyon City, he answers vaguely to Sarah's question about when he will be back. At the junction to Canyon city he sets Webb free.

The latter says, "You fooled me.” Burt replies. They separate. Klaus Kinski as James Webb, the lawyer Fred Robsahm as Burt Collins Antonio Cantafora as Ramon O'Hara Marina Malfatti as Sarah Collins Enzo Pulcrano as Pedro O'Hara Tiziana Dini as Consuela Calogero Caruana as Miguel O'Hara Jerry Ross as Peter Collins, Burt's brother Dante Maggio as Judge Wilson Claudio Trionfi Antonio Danesi as Ryan O'Hara Mimmo Maggio as Slide O'Hara Carlo Croccolo as Deputy sheriff In his investigation of narrative structures in Spaghetti Western films, Fridlund writes that Black Killer displays many typical properties of a low-end genre production. There are blatantly unmotivated conspicuous gaps in the plot; as another low-end characteristic, the scenes with the O’Haras were re-used in another film, Bounty Hunter in Trinity. However, by chance or by design, the story line does offer a subtle play on several variants of the partnership plot, used in many Spaghetti Westerns following the success of For a Few Dollars More.

Memory map

In computer science, a memory map is a structure of data that indicates how memory is laid out. Memory maps can have a different meaning in different parts of the operating system, it is the fastest and most flexible cache organization. The associative memory stores both the content of the memory word. In the boot process, a memory map is passed on from the firmware in order to instruct an operating system kernel about memory layout, it contains the information regarding the size of total memory, any reserved regions and may provide other details specific to the architecture. In virtual memory implementations and memory management units, a memory map refers to page tables, which store the mapping between a certain process's virtual memory layout and how that space relates to physical memory addresses. In native debugger programs, a memory map refers to the mapping between loaded executable/library files and memory regions; these memory maps are used to resolve memory addresses to actual symbols.

The PC BIOS provides a set of routines. Some of the available routines are: BIOS Function: INT 0x15, AX=0xE801: This BIOS interrupt call is used by the running OS to get the memory size for 64MB+ configurations, it is supported by AMI BIOSses dated August 1994 or later. The operating system just sets AX to 0xE801 calls int 0x15. If some error has happened, the routine returns with CF set to 1. If no error, the routine returns with CF clear and the state of registers is described as following: BIOS Function: INT 0x15, AX=0xE820 - GET SYSTEM MEMORY MAP: Input: SMAP buffer structure: How used: The operating system shall allocate an SMAP buffer in memory. Set registers as specified in "Input" table. On first call, EBX should be set to 0. Next step is to call INT 0x15. If no error, the interrupt call returns with CF clear and the buffer filled with data representing first region of the memory map. EBX is updated by BIOS so that when the OS calls the routine again, The next region is returned in the buffer.

BIOS sets EBX to zero. BIOS RAMMap by Mark Russinovich
