Home to an extraordinary collection of treasured masterworks, including the famed Unicorn Tapestries, The Cloisters is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. This splendid new guide, published to celebrate The Cloisters' seventy-fifth anniversary, richly illustrates and describes the most important highlights of its collection, from paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and exquisitely carved ivories to its monumental architecture evocative of the grand religious spaces and domestic interiors of the Middle Ages. The Cloisters remains a testament to design innovation—a New York City landmark with sweeping views of the Hudson River—featuring original elements of Romanesque and Gothic architecture dating from the 12th through the 15th century. Three of the structures enclose beautiful gardens cultivated with species known from tapestries, medieval herbals, and other historic sources. These exotic spaces, the art masterpieces, and the fragrant plants offer visitors an oasis of serenity and inspiration. This book both encapsulates and enhances that experience.
Will Africa be the world's next hub of manufacturing? China is answering in the affirmative and investing accordingly.
This book dispels the notion that this crucial story is merely about China's exploitation of Africa's resources, illuminating deep questions about our own Western approach to development and the implications for the future of manufacturing. China is now the biggest foreign player in Africa: largest trade partner, largest infrastructure financier, and fastest-growing source of foreign direct investment. Chinese entrepreneurs are flooding into Africa, investing in long-term assets, such as factories and heavy equipment.
The fact that China sees Africa not for its poverty but for its potential wealth is a striking departure from the attitude of the West, in particular the United States. For 50 years the West has engaged in countless poverty-alleviation and development-aid programs in Africa, yet Africa still has the largest number of people living in extreme poverty of any region in the world.
Considering Africa's difficult history of colonialism, one might suspect that the current story of China in Africa is merely a story about exploitation of resources. Author Irene Yuan Sun follows these entrepreneurs and finds instead that they are factory owners, building in Africa what they so recently learned to build in China - a global manufacturing powerhouse. This gives rise to a tantalizing possibility: that Africa can industrialize in the coming generation.
With a manufacturing-led transformation, Africa would be following in the footsteps of the United States in the 19th century, Japan in the early 20th, and the Asian Tigers in the late 20th century. Many may consider this an old-fashioned way to develop, but it's the only one that's proven to raise living standards across entire societies for generations. And with every new Chinese factory boss setting up machinery and hiring African workers, that possibility becomes more real for Africa.
With fascinating stories of entrepreneurs, workers, and government officials in Africa, along with incisive business and economic analysis, The Next Factory of the World will make you rethink both China's role in the world and Africa's future in the globalized economy.
Nancy Wu sings "連續劇" (On Call 36小時 theme song). It was quite funny after she sang this song. :D Sorry for shaking at some parts.
Jay only invited family members and very close friends. The guests arrived in England without knowing the exact location. When they reached Selby, the little village in Yorkshire, they were told the wedding date was going to be shifted a day early, on the day before Jay's 36th birthday on January 18. He met his promise to marry when he was 35. Rules governing... If a couple has no connection to the Abbey or its surrounds, then a couple can opt for a blessing at the Abbey, as it is not covered by the UK’s Marriage Law – but the ceremony itself must take place elsewhere. After the wedding, the happy couple and all the guests went to the nearby Castle Howard to enjoy a banquet. The couple have reportedly set a goal to have a baby for the Chinese Year of Sheep (2015). Jay will stay in England to film his new movie and will hold a wedding banquet when he returns to Taiwan in March. That's the most romantic wedding I've ever heard. Best Wishes to the couple. Jay's a total performer, actor, producer, director, composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist. Congrats Jay.

"By surveying these elaborate tapestries, delicate carvings, and other objects in roughly the historical sequence in which they were created, we glimpse the evolving styles and artistic traditions of the Middle Ages and gain a more meaningful understanding of the contexts in which many of them appeared. Among the masterpieces on display at The Cloisters are the famed Unicorn Tapestries, the richly carved twelfth-century ivory cross associated with the abbey of Bury St. Edmunds, known as the "Cloisters Cross," the exquisite Annuciation triptych by the Netherlandish painter Robert Campin, and many fine examples of manuscript illumination, enameling, metalwork, and stained glass." "Complete with digital color photography, map, floor plan, and glossary, this book is a contemporary guide that will reward students and enthusiasts of the Middle Ages as well as visitors seeing the Museum for the first time."--BOOK JACKET.
