California's Garden Fountain Research and Results

California's Garden Fountain Research and Results The first implementation of a soda tax in the USA came in February 2014, when it was approved by the city of Berkley, California. The goal is to have men and women drinking more water and other natural drinks by raising the cost of soda and other sugar-sweetened drinks. Attempts were made to find out the state of local drinking water fountains in both high- and low-income neighborhoods. By developing a mobile GPS application, analysts were able to gather data on Berkley’s drinking water fountains. The US Census Community Study database was utilized to accumulate information relating to race and economic status in these segments. Evaluations were made between the location and demographic data, disclosing whether class differences affected access to clean, working water fountains.California's Garden Fountain Research Results 819220108067299.jpg The research was able to establish the demographics of areas with water fountains, also noting whether the shape of the fountains was better or worse in lower class neighborhoods. The cleanliness of various fountains was found wanting, even if most were working.

Water-raising System by Camillo Agrippa

Water-raising System by Camillo Agrippa Although the mechanism created by Agrippa for moving water attained the respect of Andrea Bacci in 1588, it seemed to fade away not very long thereafter. Just years later, in 1592, the early modern Roman conduit, the Acqua Felice, was attached to the Medici’s villa, probably making the device outdated. The more likely explanation is that the unit was discontinued once Franceso di Medici, Ferdinando’s brotherdied in 1588, leading him to give up his job as cardinal and go back to Florence where he took the throne as the Grand Duke of Tuscany. While there were other important water-driven concepts either planned or built during the latter part of the sixteenth century, such as scenographic water presentations, giochi d’acqua or water caprices, and musical fountains, none was fed by water like Agrippa’s device.

The Major Characteristics of Ancient Greek Statues

Major Characteristics Ancient Greek Statues 21227258021922165846.jpg The Major Characteristics of Ancient Greek Statues Up right up until the Archaic Greeks provided the very first freestanding sculpture, a phenomenal success, carvings had mainly been completed in walls and pillars as reliefs. Most of the freestanding statues were of young, winsome male or female (kore) Greeks and are known as kouros figures. Symbolizing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were created to look stiff and typically had foot in front; the males were healthy, powerful, and nude. Around 650 BC, life-size variations of the kouroi began to be observed. The Archaic period was an incredible point of transformation for the Greeks as they grew into new forms of government, produced fresh expressions of art, and gained insights of the men and women and cultures outside of Greece. The Arcadian wars, the Spartan invasion of Samos, and other wars between city-states are examples of the sorts of conflicts that arose commonly, which is consistent with other times of historical change.
