SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Vivid (arts centre)

Vivid was a centre for the production and exhibition of media art, located in the Digbeth area of Birmingham, England. Vivid commissioned and exhibited work both for its own exhibition space and for other locations, provided spaces and resources for the production of interdisciplinary art and hosted a programme of residencies for visiting artists, commissioned major new works and large scale touring exhibitions from artists and exhibited artists' work. After failing to win Arts Council funding Vivid closed in 2012. Vivid Projects was started soon after by the Vivid curatorial team and is based at Minerva Works in Digbeth. Vivid commissioned and exhibited work both for its own exhibition space and for other locations, provided spaces and resources for the production of interdisciplinary art and hosted a programme of residencies for visiting artists, commissioned major new works and large scale touring exhibitions from artists including Haroon Mirza, Richard Billingham, Heather & Ivan Morison and exhibited artists from 1960 Fluxus movement to rising art stars.

In 2008–11 it generated 27 international residencies and exhibitions with Vivid commissions presented at the Venice Biennale, Frieze Art Fair, The Art of Ideas and British Art Show 7. Vivid produced and curated emerging and mid-career artists and presented their work in local and international contexts. Described in The Guardian as'superb' the critically acclaimed public programme presented a wide variety of new commissions, thematic shows, talks and pop up events year round; the company began trading as Vivid in the late 1990s, but was established as Birmingham Centre for Media Arts in 1992, when TURC Video amalgamated with the community arts organisation Wide Angle. The conjunction of the two entities created a hybrid resource unique in Birmingham: a film and photography workshop creating community access to what at the time was the dominant means of visual communications. Popularly known in the 1990s as BCMA, the centre adopted the name Vivid following a re-location to The Big Peg in Birmingham's jewellery quarter and began several years of digital image making, digital video training and artist development.

From 2000 Vivid concentrated on developing contemporary new media and artist moving image through production, commissioning and event programmes. The organisation moved to its final home, called The Garage - a former motor garage built in the 1950s - from its previous location in the Jewellery Quarter in April 2005. Renovation of the large MOT garage, in order to provide an exhibition and events programme alongside artist production, created a flexible, multi-purpose space for Digbeth - the first in the area; the Garage, occupied 3,000 sq ft and still bore the evidence of its former use as a vehicle repair workshop, including a large area marked "MOT Bay". After failing to win Arts Council funding Vivid closed in 2012. Vivid Projects was started soon after by the Vivid curatorial team and is based at Minerva Works in Digbeth. Official website

Hadera West railway station

Hadera Ma'arav railway station is an Israel Railways passenger station and freight terminal located in the city of Hadera. It serves the city, including its large industrial zones, as well as other small communities in the area; the station is part of the North-South coastal line. It is located at the western edge of the city of Hadera, at the southern end of Dereh HaRakevet; until 1957, Hadera had only one railway station, the Hadera East railway station, located at the eastern edge of the town, constructed in the 1920s by the British during their Mandate for Palestine, and, connected north to Haifa and south to Lod and Tel Aviv via the now mostly-defunct Eastern Railway. The new and improved "Coastal Railway Line" was constructed during the early 1950s, shortened the rail journey between Haifa and Tel Aviv by 20 minutes; the new railway line connects to the old one at the Remez railway junction, about 2.5 km north of the Hadera East railway station, which meant that Hadera East could not be served by the new coastal Haifa–Tel Aviv passenger service.

In order to include Hadera in the improved Haifa–Tel Aviv passenger service, the new Hadera West railway station was built 5 km south of the intersection of the Eastern and Coastal Railway Lines at Remez junction and 5 km west of the old railway station. The new station opened to the public on November 27, 1957; the location of the station far from the city center, meant that passenger numbers were low until the 2000s. The station underwent reconstruction and preservation during the early 1990s. With the inauguration of the new Tel Aviv suburban service in the late 1990s Hadera Ma'arav ceased to be a station on both the Jerusalem–Tel Aviv–Haifa InterCity Service and the Beer Sheva–Tel Aviv–Haifa–Nahariya InterCity Service and became a suburban station on the Tel Aviv–Binyamina suburban service. In 2001, the station was updated to the present passenger station format of Israel Railways. In the future, a combined public transport hub, to include a new central bus station, is expected to be built at the site and will replace Hadera's current central bus station, located closer to the historic city center.

The station consists of a side platform and an island platform, numbered 1 to 3 from east to west. Between the side platform and the island platform, there are two parallel tracks, an additional track to the west of platform 3. Further to the west there are several tracks in the station's freight terminal as well as stacked container and cargo storage area; the station hall is located to the east of the rail tracks. The two platforms are interconnected by a pedestrian tunnel and bridge. A lift operates on both platforms. Platform 1 is used for southbound suburban trains, platform 2 for northbound suburban trains. Platform 3 is used for suburban trains when it is necessary to allow an InterCity train to get ahead of the suburban train in Hadera in order to reduce delays. Hadera Ma'arav is a station on the Tel Aviv suburban line. All Inter-City trains pass through this station without stopping, except on Saturdays and holidays, a few morning trains, a few evening and some late night trains; the station is situated between Caesarea-Pardes Hanna railway station to the north and Netanya railway station to the south.

Timetable highlights: Suburban Service: On weekdays, the station is served by 30 southbound and 29 northbound suburban trains. The first train departs at 06:27 southbound and at 06:39 northbound; the last train arrives at 22:27 southbound and at 21:39 northbound. On Fridays and holiday evenings, the station is served by 17 suburban trains in each direction; the first train departs at 06:42 southbound and at 07:09 northbound. The last train arrives at 14:42 southbound and at 15:09 northbound. On Saturdays and holidays, at summer time the station is served by 3 southbound suburban trains and two northbound suburban trains at 22:07, 22:42. At winter time the station is served by 3 southbound suburban trains and two northbound suburban trains at 20:07, 20:42.

Hadera Ma'arav station is accessible by private cars since it is situated in a remote location 2 km from the city's center, it is located off the main road which connects central Hadera with the Coastal Highway and the Giv'at Olga neighborhood to the west. The only public transport link is line 15, 17 and 22 operated by Egged, synchronized with train arrival/departure times, but is a one-way route, going to the railway station in the mornings and returning from the railway station

Translatewiki.net

Translatewiki.net is a web-based translation platform, powered by the Translate extension for MediaWiki, which makes MediaWiki a powerful tool for translating all kinds of text. It has about 11,000 translators and for over 5,800,000 pages from over 60 projects including MediaWiki, OpenStreetMap, Encyclopedia of Life and MantisBT; the main characteristic of translatewiki.net and its engine, the Translate extension, is it being a wiki, so contribution is made easy to any web user, with a low or no barrier to entry. Quality is pursued by letting translators focus on what they're best at — translation — freeing them from all the other burdens. Translations are available to the translator and is smoothly synchronised between a revision control system and translatable wiki pages without translator intervention. In the best case, MediaWiki on Wikimedia Foundation projects, new localisations reach live sites within a day; the translation editor provides various features for machine-assisted translation, such as message documentation known as "context", suggestions from a text corpus and machine translation, checking translations for common syntax mistakes, translation status of messages.translatewiki.net is a Semantic MediaWiki, part of the semantic web. translatewiki.net was made available by Niklas Laxström as localisation platform for all languages of MediaWiki around June 2006, when it was named Betawiki.

Besides translation, it was developed with the characteristics of an integrated development environment for MediaWiki, with a focus on improvement of internationalisation features. At the end of 2007 Siebrand Mazeland joined the management of the website, moved to the current domain translatewiki.net. In April 2008, it supported over 100 languages for MediaWiki and 200 of its extensions, "making it one of the most translated software projects ever", as well as FreeCol. Since while being an independent volunteer project, it has been recognised as a major player in the global success of MediaWiki and the Wikimedia projects powered by it, like Wikipedia, in over 280 languages. In 2009 it was improved by a Google Summer of Code project by Niklas Laxström. In 2011 proofreading features were introduced. In 2012, its translation memory engine expanded to all Wikimedia projects using Translate. In 2013, the Translate platform underwent a major revamp through the "Translate User eXperience" project, or "TUX", including "changes in navigation, editor look and feel, translation area, filters and color & style".

Biblioteca Nazionale Vittorio Emanuele III

The Biblioteca nazionale Vittorio Emanuele III is a national library of Italy. It occupies the eastern wing of the 18th-century Palazzo Reale in Naples, at 1 Piazza del Plebiscito, has entrances from piazza Trieste e Trento, it is funded and organised by the Direzione Generale per i Beni Librari and the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali. In quantitative terms it is the third largest library in Italy, after the national libraries in Rome and Florence, with 1,480,747 printed volumes, 319,187 pamphlets, 18,415 manuscripts, more than 8,000 periodicals, 4,500 incunabula and the 1,800 Herculaneum papyri; the library was founded at the end of the 18th century in the Palazzo degli Studi, with its nucleus formed of books holdings of the Palazzo Capodimonte, the celebrated Farnese library Carlo di Borbone had transferred to Naples in 1734). Opened to the public in 1804 under the name of the Reale Biblioteca di Napoli, in 1816 it became the Reale Biblioteca Borbonica. Additions to its collection came from abolished religious houses and those confiscated from private collections.

With the unification of Italy in 1860 it took up its present name of the Biblioteca Nazionale. In 1910 the Officina dei papiri ercolanensi was added to the library – this was the workshop founded by Carlo di Borbone to conserve the papyri found in excavations at Herculaneum. After long debate and on the suggestion and efforts of Benedetto Croce, in 1922 the library was moved to its present location at Palazzo Reale, granted to the library by King Victor Emmanuel III. After the transfer, the collections of other important Neapolitan libraries were annexed to it, including the Biblioteca Brancacciana, it suffered during the Second World War due to the German and Allied occupations of Naples, though the most precious manuscripts had been transferred to safer locations and remained there until the library reopened in 1945. In 1980 a wing of the building was damaged by an earthquake, forcing the library to transfer some of its holdings to another part of the building.
