Since the first cultures, light has had a symbolic role directly related to the sacred, religious and cosmologic beliefs. In turn, this role is apparent in the religious buildings taking a leading part in the creation of worshipping and aesthetic forms of a religion. Yet light is an influential factor not only in the spiritual relation between the believers and the religion but also in the spatial relation between the believers and the building. Spatial structures construct the religious environment while light re-constructs the religious experience. This paper investigates and compares the relation between the spatial structure and the lighting in Early Ottoman mosques and Byzantine churches. A general study exploring the meaning and role of light in Muslim and Christian Orthodox religion is performed followed by a research on the Byzantine and Ottoman religious architecture. The city of Thessaloniki is chosen as a place where both cultures and religions have met and interacted; two examples, the Byzantine church of Holy Apostles and the Alaca Imaret mosque, are used in order to investigate the spatial structures and lighting in detail, define the relations and identify differences and similarities. Apart from the different religion in Ottoman and Byzantine culture there are great similarities that involve building types, materials and construction techniques. In many ways some of the Byzantine characteristics are considered to have evolved through Ottoman culture while Early Ottoman religious architecture reflects the balancing of traditional Orthodox themes with the Anatolian and Muslim tradition in the city of Thessaloniki. Yet after all the coexistence and the similar architectural features and techniques, there are still differences in the overall spatial structure and lit appearance of the space that arise from the different forms, essence and rituals of each religion.
The best hair style is one that is suitable for the individual’s face shape and hair care preferences. For example, a long, round afro may not be the ideal choice for an individual with a round face, because it will only accentuate that shape. At the same time, someone with a very narrow face may seem disproportionate if they choose a large afro. Furthermore, afros and cornrows require rigorous care to keep looking their best, while shaved styles, shaved heads, and buzz cuts need frequent trims to be stylish. Longer Natural Afro Styles can be adapted to different men’s preferences, however. A smaller afro could have tapered sides to better suit particular face shapes, and a buzz cut could have a longer top to help elongate a face and reduce the frequency of trims. There are many varieties of men’s hair styles that work well for African-American men, but the most popular styles include: ·Buzz Cuts: A very short style typically shorn with · clippers, these are easy to manage looks that can be maintained in seconds. Because black hair is so curly, the buzz cuts are typically far shorter than for other ethnic groups in order to control the curl. The edges of the cut along the hair line may be sharply defined or left with a natural definition. ·Shaved Styles: A shaved style is longer than a buzz cut, and often features ridges, geometric patterns, or even words as part of the distinctive style, usually along the back of the head or neck. The sides of the hair style may be tapered to shorter lengths near the hair line or sideburns. ·Dreadlocks: This long style is favored by men with Jamaican or Caribbean backgrounds, and consists of thick twists or braids covering the head. The hair may be only as long as the collar, or it may extend to the waistline. ·Cornrows: This ·braided style keeps hair close to the scalp in medium-thick braids, unlike the ·micro braids preferred by women, which are longer and thinner. Cornrows are actually a type of small ·French braid...
Facing Prostate Cancer Surgery? Learn about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery ® The Condition: Prostate Cancer Your prostate is a walnut-sized gland that is part of the male reproductive system. The prostate makes fluid that is part of male semen. Prostate cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow out of control in your prostate gland. Worldwide, more than 900,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year, making it the second most common cancer in men behind lung cancer.1 Widespread screening, early detection and improved treatment allow more men to survive prostate cancer; if the cancer is found early when it is localized or still contained in the gland, 5-year survival approaches 100%.2 Symptoms of prostate cancer can vary but may include: trouble urinating, difficulty starting or stopping your urine flow, weak or interrupted urine flow, painful or burning urination, difficulty having an erection, painful ejaculations, and/or frequent pain or stiffness in the lower back. If you are having symptoms, it is important to see your doctor. Prostate cancer can be detected using screening tests such as a digital rectal exam (DRE), PSA (prostate specific antigen) test and biopsy. During a DRE, your doctor uses a gloved finger to feel for hard or lumpy areas on your prostate gland. PSA is a simple blood test that looks for signs of prostate cancer. If your PSA level is high or goes up compared to your last test, your doctor may order a biopsy to see if the increase is because of cancer or some other reason. During the biopsy, your doctor will use a thin needle to remove small tissue samples from your prostate. The samples will be studied under a microscope for signs of cancer. Treatment & Surgical Options: Treatment and surgical options for prostate cancer may include radiation, cryotherapy, watchful waiting, hormone therapy or prostatectomy. Radiation and cryotherapy work by radiating, burning or freezing the prostate. With watchful waiting (also known as active surveillance), your doctor will monitor the cancer with regular tests and checkups. Surgery to remove the cancerous prostate is known as a prostatectomy. According to the American Urological Association’s Guidelines for the Clinical Management of Prostate Cancer, “The major potential benefit of...
