Windows Runtime

Windows Runtime is a platform-agnostic application architecture first introduced in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 in 2012. WinRT supports development in C++/WinRT, C++/CX, JavaScript-TypeScript, the managed code languages C# and Visual Basic. NET. WinRT applications natively support both the x86 and ARM processors, may run inside a sandboxed environment to allow greater security and stability. WinRT components are designed with interoperability among multiple languages and APIs in mind, including native and scripting languages. Windows Phone 8.1 uses a version of the Windows Runtime named the Windows Phone Runtime. It enables developing applications in C# and VB. NET, Windows Runtime components in C++/CX. WinRT is object-oriented by design, its underlying technology, the Windows API, is written in the language C. It is an unmanaged code application programming interface based on Component Object Model that allows interfacing from multiple languages, as does COM. However, the API definitions are stored in.winmd files, which are encoded in ECMA 335 metadata format, which.

NET Framework uses with a few modifications. This common metadata format allows less overhead when invoking WinRT from. NET applications, relative to P/Invoke, much simpler syntax; the new C++/CX language, which borrows some C++/CLI syntax, was introduced for writing and consuming WinRT components with less glue code visible to the programmer, relative to classic COM programming in C++, imposes fewer restrictions relative to C++/CLI on mixing types. The Component Extensions of C++/CX are recommended for use at the API-boundary only, not for other purposes. Regular C++ can be used to program with WinRT components, with the help of the Windows Runtime C++ Template Library, similar in purpose to what Active Template Library provides for COM. In 2019, Microsoft deprecated C++/CX in favor of the C++/WinRT header library. WinRT applications run within a sandbox and need explicit user approval to access critical OS features and underlying hardware. File access is restricted to several predetermined locations, such as the directories Documents or Pictures.

WinRT applications for Windows RT, Windows 8 and beyond are packaged in the.appx file format. WinRT applications are distributed through an application store named Microsoft Store, where WinRT software can be downloaded and purchased by users. WinRT apps can only be sideloaded from outside Windows Store on Windows 8 or RT systems that are part of a Windows domain, or equipped with a special activation key obtained from Microsoft. In a major departure from Win32 and to. NET Framework 4.5, most APIs which are expected to take significant time to complete are implemented as asynchronous. The application dispatches the API call, which returns freeing the application to perform other tasks while waiting for results; the asynchronous model requires new programming language constructs, similar to try/catch used in exception handling. Parts of the API needing asynchronous access include on-screen messages and dialogs, file access, Internet connectivity, streams and services, calendar and appointments.

The metadata describes the code written for the WinRT platform. It defines a programming model that makes it possible to write object-oriented code that can be shared across programming languages, enables services like reflection. Herb Sutter, C++ expert at Microsoft, explained during his session on C++ at the 2011 Build conference that the WinRT metadata is CLI metadata. Native code cannot contain metadata and it is stored in separate WINMD-files that can be reflected like ordinary CLI assemblies; because it is CLI metadata, code written in native WinRT languages can be used from managed CLI languages. WinRT has a rich object-oriented class-based type system, built on the metadata, it supports constructs with corresponding constructs in the. NET framework: classes, properties and events. One of the major additions to WinRT relative to COM is the cross-application binary interface. NET-style generics. In C++/CX these are declared using the keyword generic with a syntax similar to that of keyword template.

WinRT classes can be genericized using C++ templates, but only template instantiations can be exported to.winmd metadata, unlike WinRT generics which preserve their genericity in the metadata. WinRT provides a library of generic containers that parallel those in the C++ Standard Library, some reciprocal conversion functions; the consumption of WinRT collections in. NET languages and in JavaScript is more transparent than in C++, with automated mappings into their natural equivalents occurring behind the scenes; when authoring a WinRT component in a managed language, some extra, COM-style rules must be followed, e.g.. NET framework collection types cannot be declared as return types, but only the WinRT interfaces that they implement can be used at the component boundary. Classes that are compiled to target the WinRT are called WinRT components, they are classes that can be written for any supported platform. The key is the met

Thomas Heurtaux

Thomas Heurtaux is a French professional footballer who plays for Italian Serie B club Salernitana. He played domestically for Caen and Cherbourg, for Italian clubs Udinese and Hellas Verona, for Ankaragücü of the Turkish Süper Lig; the Normandy native came through the ranks at Caen, spent his entire career with the club, apart from a loan spell at Cherbourg in 2008-09, when he scored two goals in 25 appearances. Heurtaux represented the club 65 times, scoring five goals in the process, to establish himself in the Caen first team. On 25 May 2012, Udinese confirmed the signing of Heurtaux from Caen on a two-year deal. On 12 July 2017, he agreed to join Hellas Verona for a year loan. On 18 August 2018, he joined Turkish club Ankaragücü on a permanent transfer. A year having claimed that the club had not paid his wages for nine months, Heurtaux cancelled his contract, he returned to Italian football with Serie B club Salernitana on 2 September 2019.

St. Brendan Catholic Church, Los Angeles

St. Brendan Catholic Church is a Catholic church in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, located in the Windsor Square section of Los Angeles, California; the current Gothic Revival-style church was built in 1927 and has served as a location for various Hollywood productions. St. Brendan was formed as a new parish in 1914 under the leadership of Father William Forde; the parish was dubbed the "baby" parish, in 1915 Father Forde told the Los Angeles Times: "The growth of the'baby' parish of the diocese has been remarkable. New families are moving in every day; the whole community is alive and developing rapidly. The congregation is enthusiastic and hopeful of great things in the future." The parish opened a parochial grammar school in 1915 on Western Avenue, which still operates at that location. In 1927, the parish built the large brownstone Gothic church, used by the parish for more than 90 years. At the time of the new church's dedication in January 1928, the Los Angeles Times noted that the "beautiful" new church had cost $400,000, reported: "The new building is in the Old English Gothic style and is considered one of the handsomest structures of its kind in California."

Designed by architect Emmett Martin, the church has been called "one of the archdiocese's architectural gems." In 1957, Archbishop Timothy Manning honored St. Brendan by consecrating it in a three-hour service. Consecration raises a church to the highest order, which may never be transferred for common or profane use. St. Brendan was one of only six churches in Los Angeles to reach that level; as part of the consecration ceremony, a relic of the 6th century St. Brendan was taken in a procession through the church and sealed into the altar. Located near the Hollywood studios, St. Brendan's gothic structure has proved a popular setting, appearing in the following productions; the St. Brendan Church Boys Choir 1936 - 2000 was featured in over 100 films. In the Our Gang short Pups Is Pups, Wheezer is reunited with his lost puppies outside the doors of St. Brendan. In War of the Worlds, the climactic scene in which desperate humans gather to pray for a miracle inside St. Brendan while Martian ships blast away outside.

Armageddon. In an apparent nod to War of the Worlds, the lead characters played by Liv Tyler and Ben Affleck are married at St. Brendan at the end of the movie. In November Rain by Guns N Roses the wedding scenes between Stephanie Seymour and Axl Rose. In Fight Club the narrator attends a support meeting for cancer victims at the church. Spider-Man 3 St. Brendan appears in the following television shows: The Fugitive, episode "Angels travel on Lonely Roads" part 2 Congratulations, It’s a Boy!

Ermeton Abbey

Ermeton Abbey is a monastery of Benedictine nuns in a medieval castle in the Belgian village of Ermeton-sur-Biert. In the early 14th century, John I, Marquis of Namur made Jacquemin de Bossoit lord of Ermeton; the lordship passed by inheritance for 300 years until bought by ironmaster Richard Godart in 1612. In 1856, Antoinette de Mérode, princess of Monaco, sold the castle, which in 1870 passed by marriage to the Villermont family; the last heir of the Villermonts, Count Henry de Villermont, died in combat on 5 September 1914, is commemorated at the entrance to the castle. In 1936, the castle was rented by a community of Benedictine nuns, who bought it outright in 1942; the building was designated as built heritage of Belgium in 1973. The community of Benedictine nuns that moved to Ermeton in 1936 had been founded in Brussels in 1917 by Eugène Vandeur, a monk of Maredsous Abbey; the monastery operates a guesthouse. Two other abbeys, both now independent houses, were founded from Ermeton: Maria Heimsuchung in Steinfeld and Abadia Santa Maria de Guadalupe, Mexico
