Trama: Su una nave diretta a Bombay che nel corso del suo tragitto toccherà alcuni dei principali porti del Mediterraneo, si imbarcano Rosa Maria, una giovane insegnante di storia, e la figlioletta di otto anni, Maria Joana. La donna, che deve raggiungere il marito in India, ha deciso di cogliere l'occasione del viaggio per conoscere tutti quei luoghi che ha studiato con passione e dei quali ha sempre parlato durante le sue lezioni ma che non ha mai avuto il tempo e l'occasione di visitare. Dopo essere partita da Lisbona la nave si ferma a Marsiglia dove Rosa Maria legge una lapide che ricorda le origini greche della città e poi a Napoli dove coglie l'occasione per visitare Pompei e riflettere sulla distruzione della città e del significato di punizione divina che all'epoca fu dato all'evento. Poi è la volta di Atene, dove madre e figlia si imbattono in un prete ortodosso che le aiuta a meglio comprendere le meraviglie architettoniche dell'Acropoli e, successivamente, di Istanbul con la visita a Santa Sofia, prima cattedrale, poi moschea e adesso museo. Al Cairo, durante la visita alle piramidi, incontrano un celebre attore portoghese che le invita a visitare l'albergo costruito in occasione dell'apertura del Canale di Suez che, ben presto, attraverseranno in nave. In rotta sul Mar Rosso vengono avvicinate dal comandante della nave (John, statunitense ma di origini polacche) che le invita a cenare al suo tavolo. Rosa Maria rifiuta cortesemente l'invito dell'uomo che, così, trascorre la serata conversando amabilmente con tre donne molto celebri salite a bordo durante le varie tappe: Delphine, un'imprenditrice francese, Francesca, una ex modella italiana, Helena, una cantante greca. Durante la tappa nel porto di Aden (nello Yemen), John scende dalla nave e acquista per la piccola Maria Joana una bambola in costume arabo: è un buon pretesto per convincere, la sera stessa, Rosa Maria ad accettare l'invito al suo tavolo e a conversare con le sue illustri ospiti. Tutto procede bene - anche perché, malgrado ognuno parli la sua lingua, tutti si comprendono - ma proprio mentre Helena intona una canzone per allietare i passeggeri, giunge la notizia che dei terroristi, durante l'ultimo attracco, hanno piazzato degli ordigni a bordo

Networked graphics : building networked games and virtual environments by Anthony Steed( )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Networked Graphics equips programmers and designers with a thorough grounding in the techniques used to create truly network-enabled computer graphics and games. Written for graphics/game/VE developers and students, it assumes no prior knowledge of networking. The text offers a broad view of what types of different architectural patterns can be found in current systems, and readers will learn the tradeoffs in achieving system requirements on the Internet. It explains the foundations of networked graphics, then explores real systems in depth, and finally considers standards and extensions. Numerous case studies and examples with working code are featured throughout the text, covering groundbreaking academic research and military simulation systems, as well as industry-leading game designs. Everything designers need to know when developing networked graphics and games is covered in one volume - no need to consult multiple sources. The many examples throughout the text feature real simulation code in C++ and Java that developers can use in their own design experiments. Case studies describing real-world systems show how requirements and constraints can be managed

Porto da minha infância( Visual )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in Portuguese and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the freedom of inspiration and the rigor of writing that are his trademarks, Manoel de Oliveira returns to Oporto, the city of his birth. The Oporto of this childhood is a city laden with history, a city of artists and thinkers. And, as in a spiral movement, the film moves from the ruins of the house of his birth to the city of Oporto, to the whole society. Oporto is also the city that saw the birth, after 1896, of cinema in Portugal ... Oporto of my Childhood is the film of a search: fragments of memories, footprints, testimonies, marks, bands of the time, song lyrics, photographs. Images of an identification that is sometimes uncertain. "This Proustian documentary, made when Oliveira was 93 years old, explores the great Portuguese film-maker's relationship with his home town, Oporto, the place which inspired his first film Douro, Faina Fluvial way back in 1931. Using old photographs and newsreels with dramatic reconstructions, he offers a vivid portrait of a city caught between the old and the new. When he was a child, Oporto didn't even have proper cinemas, film shows were improvised in sheds, Oliveira (born 1908) recalls. Most of the landmarks familiar from his youth have vanished. The brothels and cafés where he and his artist friends used to while away their days are long since closed. Even the house where he grew up is in ruins. The city I remember only remains alive in my sad memory, he sadly reflects. Poignant and playful, this is one of the old master's most accessible late films."--Time Out
