Regular grid

A regular grid is a tessellation of n-dimensional Euclidean space by congruent parallelotopes. Grids of this type appear on graph paper and may be used in finite element analysis, finite volume methods, finite difference methods, in general for discretization of parameter spaces. Since the derivatives of field variables can be conveniently expressed as finite differences, structured grids appear in finite difference methods. Unstructured grids offer more flexibility than structured grids and hence are useful in finite element and finite volume methods; each cell in the grid can be addressed by index in two dimensions or in three dimensions, each vertex has coordinates in 2D or in 3D for some real numbers dx, dy, dz representing the grid spacing. A Cartesian grid is a special case where the elements are unit squares or unit cubes, the vertices are points on the integer lattice. A rectilinear grid is a tessellation by rectangles or rectangular cuboids that are not, in general, all congruent to each other.

The cells may still be indexed by integers as above, but the mapping from indexes to vertex coordinates is less uniform than in a regular grid. An example of a rectilinear grid, not regular appears on logarithmic scale graph paper. A skewed grid is a tessellation of parallelepipeds. A curvilinear grid or structured grid is a grid with the same combinatorial structure as a regular grid, in which the cells are quadrilaterals or cuboids, rather than rectangles or rectangular cuboids.

Southern French Gothic

Southern French Gothic is a specific style of Gothic architecture developed in the south of France. It arose in the early 13th century following the victory of the Catholic church over the Cathars, as the church sought to re-establish its authority in the region; as a result, church buildings present features drawn from military architecture. Southern French Gothic is simpler and less ornate than northern French Gothic, further differs in that the construction material is brick rather than stone. Over time, the style came to influence secular buildings as well as churches and spread beyond the area where Catharism had flourished. During the rise of Catharism, the luxury of the Roman Catholic Church faced constant criticism by the Cathar ecclesiastics. After the political eradication of the Cathar aristocracy during the Albigensian crusade, the clergy of southern France understood that after having won the war, it was necessary for them to win back the minds of the populace; the ideology of Medieval Inquisition was reflected in the adoption of a more austere and uncluttered architectural style.

Southern French Gothic, as its name suggests, is found in the southern part of France in the regions where Catharism had developed, which were subjected to religious and military repression from the North. The reconquest by the Catholic hierarchy gave rise to the construction or reconstruction of many religious buildings, but of secular ones; the regions concerned are therefore the current départements of the Haute-Garonne, the Tarn, the Tarn-et-Garonne, the Ariège, the Gers, the Aude, the Pyrénées-Orientales, the Hérault, with instances in neighboring départements as well. Southern French Gothic is characterized by the austerity of the constructions, such as the use of solid buttresses rather than flying buttresses, while the openings are few and narrow. Romanesque architecture persisted for longer in the south of France than in the north, the transition to Gothic was progressive. Many of the buildings in the Southern Gothic style are thus built with a single nave, roof-frames resting on diaphragm arches cover them.

In an area poor in stone, the typical construction material was brick, whose use in the Southern French Gothic of the regions of Toulouse and Albi became one of its distinguishing marks. The builders used techniques adapted to this material, such as the miter arches typical of this style. Brick lends itself to geometric decorative compositions, there are few sculptures integrated into the architecture. Depending on the type of clay used, the bricks can be rounded by abrasion; some buildings use stone sparingly to create color contrasts. Neighboring regions were coming under this influence but dominated by stone construction adopted the same architectural vocabulary. After the Cathar episode, one goal of the Catholic church was the recovery of the faithful through preaching. To this end, the preference was for the single nave, which promotes acoustics and places all the faithful under the gaze of the preacher; the nave is lined with side chapels, lodged between the buttresses, surmounted by large windows that illuminate it.

The first example of Southern french Gothic architecture is the nave of the Toulouse Cathedral, built from 1210 to 1220, from which architectural research will follow in the city's mendicant convents. However, the presence of a single nave is not related to this desire but may be connected to other considerations such as a single pre-existing nave. Conversely, the vast nave of the Jacobins of Toulouse is divided by a row of pillars but is a single entity. There, the grafting of a single apse of polygonal plan on a church with two vessels gave birth to a starry vault whose complex organization anticipated more than a century on the flamboyant Gothic. Tradition refers to this masterpiece as "palm tree", because the veins gush out of the smooth shaft of the column like palm trees; the bell towers can be of all types, but two forms stand out: the "Toulouse" bell tower and the wall belfry. In the Toulouse region, the typical bell tower appeared in the Romanesque period, with an octagonal floor plan and stories progressively decreasing in size.

In the transition to Gothic, only the shape of the bays changed. Bell towers are surmounted by a spire, but a certain number of these are missing, either because they have been destroyed, or because the construction was interrupted; the first and typical example is the bell tower of Saint-Sernin of Toulouse, enhanced in the Gothic period with miter arches succeeding circa 1270 the Romanesque arched windows, but there are ogival bays. The other form of the bell tower, more common in smaller buildings, is the wall belfry frequently characterized by miter arches, resembling fortifications in having elements such as battlements and machicolations. Here again the first model was a church in Toulouse: Notre-Dame du Taur. Defensive elements such as battlements, machicolations and watchtowers are frequent in Southern Gothic churches. Most of the time, except in cases where the church is included in a defensive system, these elements have only a decorative and a symbolic role, tending to assert the power of the Church.

At the church of Notre-Dame de Simorre, it was the 19th-century architect and conservationist Eugène Viollet-le-Duc who added battlements and watchtowers to the top of the buttresses. The term "Southern French Gothic" is applied to buildings of worship and cathedrals; the same architectural principles of sobriety of construction, absence or limitation of carved decoration, mas

WCMX

WCMX is a radio station broadcasting a Christian radio format. Licensed to Leominster, United States, the station is owned by Twin City Baptist Temple, Inc. and features programming from the Salem Radio Network. WCMX began operations in November 1967, as MOR station WLMS; the station was established by Clarance Allain. WLMS tried Top 40 in 1968, competing with local established Top 40 station WEIM, but reverted to MOR, a format that it continued through the 1970s. In 1981, it was purchased by Dr. Donn Parker and became country music station WCMX, continued that format until late 1988, when it changed to adult contemporary; the call letters stand for "country music 10," referencing the station's dial position in Roman numerals. In 1990, the station moved to an oldies/AC hybrid. In August 1992, WCMX was put up for sale, it was sold to Twin Cities Baptist Temple late that year and came back on the air in 1996 with a new tower and ground system as a Christian radio station. In June 2015, Twin City Baptist hired a new station manager to oversee a complete format overhaul of WCMX.

"Hope 1000", the previous name for the station, became "The Power AM 1000." The station continues to broadcast nationally known Bible teaching programs alongside modern Christian music with styles and genres ranging from adult contemporary and modern worship to rock, hip hop and electronic dance music. The Power celebrated their official launch on October 31, 2015, with an evening party, open to the public; as of April 8, 2018, the station was silent.
