Selva is a coastal comarca in Catalonia, located between the mountain range known as the Serralada Transversal or Puigsacalm and the Costa Brava. Unusually, it is divided between the provinces of Girona and Barcelona, with Fogars de la Selva being part of Barcelona province, all other municipalities falling inside Girona province. Unusually, its capital, Santa Coloma de Farners, is no longer among its larger municipalities, with the coastal towns of Blanes and Lloret de Mar having far surpassed it in size. Selva borders the comarques of Maresme, Vallès Oriental, Garrotxa, Gironès, Baix Empordà. Media related to Selva at Wikimedia Commons Official tourism website Official comarcal web site


Readalong was an educational, Canadian television program for young children, first produced in 1976 for TVOntario. The program taught fundamentals of reading with the help of live child actors and puppets, including a comically dressed grandmother figure named Granny and anthropomorphic footwear: a brown, male boot and pink, female shoe named, appropriately and Pretty joined by a female auto racing boot named Dynamite Donna. Other characters were Mister Bones, the Explorer and the Thing; the program was a marketing had strong international sales lasting many years. The Granny and Pretty puppets are now housed at the Canadian Museum of History. Noreen Young, who designed the puppets created puppets for other programs, including Under the Umbrella Tree; the characters were developed by Ken Sobol, who wrote all the scripts for the series. The show's music was composed by Eric Robertson.

The Annemie is a windmill located on the Boschdijk 1006 in Eindhoven, in the province of North Brabant, Netherlands. Build in 1891 on an artificial hill, the windmill functioned as gristmill; the mill was built as a tower mill and its sails have a span of 25 meters. The mill is a national monument since 15 August 1972; the Annemie was built in 1891 by Antonius van Himbergen from Bladel, who buit De Roosdonck in Nuenen, was since used as a gristmill. In 1957 the mill was refurnished as a house, the inner workings were removed, though main parts like the central axis and wheel were kept. In 1991 the mill was restored and after consecutive maintenance works between 2005 and 2019 the mill is presently in reasonable condition; the Annemie is owned and used as living accommodation as well as an office, so visits are not possible.

Trisnojuwono is an Indonesian author and former revolutionary and military man born in Yogyakarta, 12 November 1925. He died in Bandung, 29 October 1996. Much of his literary work is based on his experiences as Pemuda during the Indonesian National Revolution and includes many unique eye witness accounts of this chaotic and violent period. During the Indonesian National Revolution he became a member of the revolutionary armed forces in Jogjakarta, 1946. Student Corps in Magelang and Jombang in 1947-1948, the famous Siliwangi Division of the newly established Indonesian armed forces in 1950-1953. In the revolutionary period, he took part in the fighting in Central Java, West Java and East Java. In 1949 he was captured by the Dutch army and imprisoned in Ambarawa for 10 months, until he managed to escape, it was from his friendship with fellow POW Captain Nusyirwan Adil Hamzah during his time in Ambarawa that he first learned to enjoy poetry and literature. In 1950 he joined the Indonesian Army and served with the Special Forces, Combat Intelligence, with the Air Force as a licensed paratrooper.

After an eventful military career he became the editor of'Cinta' in 1955, editor of'Pikiran Rakyat' and Director of PT Granesia Publishers in Bandung. His short stories began appearing in literary magazines as off 1955, his first book'Men and Munitions' is a collection of short stories published in 1957, for which he was awarded the national literary prize BMKN of 1957-1958. His second collection of short stories is titled'Sea Wind' followed by'In The Middle of War' and'Tales of the Revolution'. One of the short stories from his book'Men and Munitions' entitled:'Barbed Wire Fence' was made into a movie by Asrul Sani, but did not get wide circulation due to opposition from the PAPFIAS and Lekra, he reworked the story into a novel with the same title, for which he was awarded the literary'Yamin Prize'. He continued writing novels'Biarkanlah Tjahaja Matahari Membersihkanku Dahulu' in 1966,'Surat-Surat Cinta' in 1968,'Peristiwa-Peristiwa Ibukota Pendudukan' in 1970,'Petualangan' in 1981. An unfinished novel is named'Ambarawa'.

Both the novels and short stories of his literary works occupy a unique place in Indonesian literature as he wrote about the personal lives of the military outside of the revolution. In books such as'Di Medan Perang' he shows the less than glorious aspects of the Indonesian revolution, when he describes atrocities such as the rape and murder of Indo-European women during the chaotic Bersiap period.

Naked objects

Naked objects is an architectural pattern used in software engineering. The naked objects pattern is defined by three principles: The naked object pattern's innovative feature arises by combining the 1st and 2nd principles into a 3rd principle: The naked objects pattern was first described formally in Richard Pawson's PhD thesis which includes a thorough investigation of various antecedents and inspirations for the pattern including, for example, the Morphic user interface. Naked Objects is contrasted with the model–view–controller pattern. However, the published version of Pawson's thesis contains a foreword by Trygve Reenskaug, who first formulated the model–view–controller pattern, suggesting that naked objects is closer to the original intent of model–view–controller than many of the subsequent interpretations and implementations. Pawson's thesis claims four benefits for the pattern: The automatically generated object-oriented user interface is suitable for sovereign applications but not for transient applications.

There are now several software frameworks that implement the naked objects pattern: The Department of Social Protection in Ireland has built a suite of enterprise applications using the naked objects pattern. As part of its Service Delivery Modernisation programme, the DSP designed a new enterprise architecture both to meet its planned new business requirements and to provide greater agility over the longer term; the naked objects pattern forms a key element of the SDM architecture. In November 2002, the DSP went live with a new application to replace its existing system for the administration of child benefit; this is believed to be the first operational application of the naked objects pattern, anywhere. The DSP's experience in building this first application, including the reactions of users to the radical user interface is documented extensively in Pawson's thesis, more in a presentation at QCon London 2011. One of the more striking aspects of the DSP experience was the way that the Naked Objects technique permitted re-use actively.

Once a domain object, such as a Customer, had been defined for one'application' it could be adapted with the minimum of tweaking and addition for use elsewhere. This suggests that the approach could become a favourite in government circles, where re-use is seen as a powerful technique for breaking down siloed systems; the UK'Transformational Government' policy is keen to see re-use become a standard requirement of new government systems, both consuming other governmental system components and making new ones available for others to use. This re-use is seen in terms of services, but objects could be an powerful approach; the DSP's initial'Naked Object Architecture' was developed by an external contractor, but the architecture was subsequently redeveloped around the Naked Objects Framework which now forms the basis for future application development, as confirmed in the request for tenders for a four-year programme of further applications to be built using naked objects. The naked objects pattern has attracted a fair amount of criticism since the first public demonstration of the idea at the OOPSLA 2001 conference under the banner of Intriguing Technologies.

This criticism has focused on one of three main areas: None of these criticisms is unique to naked objects, but the fact that naked objects combines all three ideas gives it a higher profile. The naked objects pattern has relevance to several other disciplines and/or trends, including: Object storage mechanisms Object-relational mapping, object databases, object persistence are all concerned with eliminating the need to write a conventional Data access layer underneath the domain objects; these patterns are complementary and synergistic with the naked objects pattern, concerned with eliminating the need to write layers above the domain objects. Agile software development Naked objects is compatible with the trend towards agile development methodologies in many different ways, but to fine-grained iterative development; the DSP experience was also the largest application of agile software development techniques within a public-sector organization, worldwide. Domain-driven design Domain-driven design is the idea that an evolving domain model should be used as a mechanism to help explore requirements rather than vice versa.

The fact that a naked object system forces direct correspondence between the user interface and the domain model makes it easier to attempt domain-driven design, makes the benefits more visible. Model-driven architecture Although naked objects does not conform to the strict definition of MDA, it shares many of the same goals. Dan Haywood has argued. Restful Objects A standard for creating a RESTful interface from a domain object model. Though the Restful Objects specification does not state that the interface must be generated reflective from the domain model, that possibility exists
