Dialog z kobiecością – wystawa Mody na Sztukę / A dialogue of femininity
Wystawa „Kobiety Zbyluta Grzywacza”, to kolejny głos w – prowadzonej od września ubiegłego roku przez najmłodszy oddział Muzeum Narodowego w Kielcach – dyskusji. Dzięki narracyjnej i multimedialnej ekspozycji, a także spotkaniom, sympozjom, kongresom, trwa w Muzeum dialog poświęcony różnorodności narodowej, etnicznej i wyznaniowej, tej determinowanej przez pozycję społeczną czy płeć.
Tym razem przyczynkiem do dyskusji będzie twórczość jednego z najbardziej znanych polskich malarzy Zbyluta Grzywacza. Twórczość prezentująca mnogość i różnorodność poglądów i przekonań. Artysta przez całe życie walczył z uprzedzeniami oraz stereotypami. Będąc zaangażowanym politycznie, jawił się jako erudyta, znawca sztuki, starając się wymieniać z widzem swoimi doświadczeniami. Zawsze z poszanowaniem odmienności. W niewielkiej przestrzeni Sali Białej – sali wystaw czasowych – zestawione zostaną ze sobą niewielkie, kameralne rysunki aktów oraz obrazy z cyklu „Opuszczona” i „Lalki”. Nie bez przyczyny wernisaż zaplanowano na Dzień Kobiet, podkreślając wieloznaczność tej ekspozycji. Zwiedzający będą mieli okazję zastanowić się, jak – w kontekście erotyki telewizyjnej i internetowej – postrzegamy dziś intymne akty. Jaka jest pozycja kobiety we współczesnym świecie, jak odbierane jest jej nagie ciało. Pracom towarzyszy film „Profesor” w reżyserii uczennicy artysty Marii Gacek. A całość to doskonały pretekst do zorganizowania serii spotkań-wykładów, pokazów filmowych, warsztatów, które pozwolą spojrzeć na sytuację kobiet, także przez pryzmat emancypacji i feminizmu.
Zbylut Grzywacz(1939-2004) – malarz, rysownik, grafik, rzeźbiarz, fotografik, pisarz i erudyta – postać w najnowszej historii polskiej sztuki wyjątkowa. Bezkompromisowy uczestnik ruchu kultury niezależnej i opozycji demokratycznej w czasach PRL-u, charyzmatyczny pedagog krakowskiej ASP i pamiętany do dzisiaj wychowawca kilku pokoleń młodzieży. Pasjonat w każdej dziedzinie. Znany głównie jako współzałożyciel legendarnej grupy Wprost (z Maciejem Bieniaszem, Leszkiem Sobockim i Jackiem Waltosiem). Najbardziej z wprostowców radykalny z determinacją realizował misję sztuki zaangażowanej, nierzadko interwencyjnej, niepokornej wobec oficjalnego życia politycznego i społecznego. Po 1989 roku Zbylut Grzywacz pozostał wierny sobie. Jak powiedział w jednej z rozmów, przestał służyć malarstwem, a zaczął służyć malarstwu. Wrócił do natury, do aktu, którego studiowanie jest dla każdego malarza uniwersalną szkołą artystycznego widzenia i wyrażania.

Gw. II für 15 cm s.I.G. 33: S.P. Heavy Infantry Howitzer
This vehicle consists of the 15 cm. heavy infantry howitzer mounted in the hull of a modified, turretless Pz. Kpfw. II chassis. The chassis is approximately three feet longer than that of the standard Pz Kw II tank and has six bogie wheels instead of the usual five. The sprockets, rear idlers, bogie wheels, return rollers, steering assembly, gear box and hull nose are those of the Pz. Kpfw. II; the instrument panel is that of a Pz. Kpfw. III. The front shield is in one piece extending straight across the full width of the superstructure. The driver’s visor is of the double shutter type. The road performance of this equipment approximates that of the Pz. Kpfw. II tank.
The gun, a standard infantry support weapon, is mounted low in the hull, projecting through a vertical slot in the shield. The gun shield is 15 mm thick and is of shallow construction. It extends about a third of the distance of the superstructure to the rear. Unlike the “Wasp” there are no protecting side plates along the entire length of the superstructure.
The gun is 64.57 inches in length, has a muzzle velocity of 790 f.s. and a maximum effective range of 5140 yards. The casting containing the recuperator and buffer, housed underneath the barrel, extends almost to the end of the barrel. The breech mechanism is similar to the 10.5 cm. I.F.H. 18. The elevating qear is operated from the right and the traversing gear from the left. In field mounting its traverse is 11°, its elevation 0° to +73°.
Two canada goose tilbud til børn of ammunition are fired, the 15 cm. I. Gr. 33 and the 15 cm. I. Gr. 38. The H.E. capacity is high, 21.8%. The only other shell that the weapon is known to fire is a smoke shell, the 15 cm. I. Gr. 38 Nb. The same percussion fuze, s. I. Gr. Z. 23, which weighs 75 lbs., is used in each case.
Autoantibody profiles in the sera of patients with Q fever: characterization of antigens by immunofluorescence, immunoblot and sequence analysis
Recent reports have shown that some of the immunological aspects of Q fever, a rickettsiosis caused by Coxiella burnetii, could be related to self-antigen responses. The aim of this study was to determine the specificity of the autoantibody response of patients with acute and chronic Coxiella infections. Smooth muscle and cardiac muscle-specific autoantibodies were observed in significant percentages in acutely or chronically affected Q fever patients when compared to healthy volunteers. Moreover, the incidence of cardiac muscle-specific autoantibody was significantly higher among chronically ill patients compared to acutely ill patients. Moreover, a band of 50 kD of a HeLa extract was detected in most of the sera of individuals with chronic infections and previous sequence analysis suggests that this antigen presents a high degree of homology with the human actin elongation factor 1 alpha. Further research would be necessary to confirm if antibodies to human cytoskeletal proteins could be of clinical importance in chronically infected Q fever patients.
Q fever is a worldwide distributed human rickettsiosis that was described by Derrick in 1937. Burnett in Australia and Cox in the United States first isolated its etiological agent almost simultaneously so canada goose whistler parka price was referred to as Coxiella burnetii [1,2]. Q fever infection is usually asymptomatic or acute self-limited but Coxiella is an intracellular bacterium that may persist within host macrophages leading to chronic complications such as endocarditis, hepatitis, meningitis, bone infections or chronic fatigue syndrome [3-6]. Diagnosis of Q fever is usually based on serological procedures because isolation of the bacterium is difficult and hazardous and requires level 3 biosafety laboratories . Unique to Coxiella is its antigenic phase variation that appears to involve changes on lipopolyssacharide [2,4,8]. Virulent phase I bacteria are isolated from natural infection while avirulent phase II occurs after serial passages. Although the factors that determine the clinical presentation of Q fever are still not well understood, variation in C. burnetii strains, route of infection, host immunity and size of the inoculum have been implicated in disease evolution [2,4,5].
Autoimmune diseases are defined as the pathologic sequelae of autoimmune responses. The precise mechanisms by which they are induced are still under discussion, but genetic, hormonal and environmental factors have all been implicated [9,10]. The idea that infectious agents may represent one of the major environmental factors initiating autoimmune responses is now generally accepted and the mechanisms of induction are currently being re-examined [11-13]. Intracellular microorganisms, particularly those associated with persistent or latent infection, have developed strategies to modulate immune responses and hence survive within host cells . Under these circumstances, these microorganisms would not only initiate but also sustain an anomalous reaction that would lead to the appearance of autoimmune features in predisposed patients. Molecular homology with host sequences, polyclonal stimulation of B and T clones, cytokine stimulation, over expression of major histocompatibility complex molecules (MHC II), antigen modification and host cell damage with the release of self-antigens, are the most commonly described mechanisms that could lead to autoimmune responses due to infectious agents [11,13,15-17]. Links between autoimmunity and infection have been described in several situations, as in the case of myocarditis following coxsackievirus and trypanosomal infections [18-20], rheumatic fever in relation to streptococci , ankylosing spondylitis and klebsiella , reactive arthropathies and Epstein Barr viruses [23,24] and recently heart disease and chlamydia . Direct evidence that confirms the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases requires test that are still beyond the capacity of most clinical laboratories so autoimmune disease diagnosis is frequently based on circumstantial evidence , such as the demonstration and quantitation of the various autoantibodies.
In Q fever patients, the immune responses elicited by C. burnetii are associated with inflammatory responses, rheumatoid factor, cryoglobulins or immune-complexes [8,27]. Antibodies to cardiolipin, nuclear antigens, leukocyte, platelet, mitochondrial and smooth muscle antigens are commonly found in chronically infected patients [1,8,27]. The study of IgG subclass distributions has revealed a significant increase in IgG1 and IgG3 levels in sera of patients similarly to those described in some autoimmune diseases . Based on all these findings canada goose whistler parka price could be proposed that some pathological aspects of the long-term chronic Q fever disease, such as heart disease, could be induced or maintained by autoimmune mechanisms. The aim of this study was to characterize the specificity of the autoantigens recognised by circulating antibodies in sera of patients with acute and chronic Coxiella infections and identify differences between chronic diseases with and without cardiac involvement. This may bring new insights to the mechanisms of induction of possible auto-reactive cardiac complications.
The work was done in accordance with the regulations of internal review board of the Institute of Health, Carlos III. Spain. The patients and volunteers gave a written informed consent on the use of their sera to participate in the study, which was approved by the Human Research Committee.
Serum samples of patients with Q fever. Convalescent sera from 58 serologically confirmed acute (n = 24) and chronic (n = 34) Q fever cases were studied. All patients were adults, equally divided between males and females, aged 26 – 60 years (mean 45 years). Diagnosis was done by immunofluorescence using phase I and phase II Coxiella antigens. A serum sample with phase II IgG titre ≥ 200 and phase II IgM ≥ 50 was considered acute and a serum sample with a phase I IgG titre ≥ 800 was classified as chronic [1,2]. All chronic cases had phase I IgA antibodies titre ≥ 50 . Patients with acute infection had fever and/or atypical pneumonia but those demonstrating serological evidence of chronic Q fever disease could be divided in two groups: those with cardiac involvement (n = 26) or those with other pathologies (hepatic diseases, fever or bone disease) (n = 8).
Twenty serum samples from healthy volunteers were studied, (males 10, females 10) aged 18 – 36 years (mean 29 years).
Cryostat sections of monkey cardiac muscle (The Binding Site, UK) were used as a substrate to determine cardiac muscle antibodies (CMA). Sections of rat liver, kidney or stomach (BioSystems, Sp) were used as a substrate to detect specific antibodies (anti-parietal cell, PCA, and anti-smooth muscle, ASMA). Human carcinoma cell line (Hep-2) (MarDx Carlsbad, USA) was used as a substrate to study anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA). Anti-neutrophil antibodies (ANCA) were screened using neutrophil slides (The Binding Site, UK) and anti-double-stranded DNA antibodies (dsDNA) were assayed using Crithidia luciliae slides (MarDx Carlsbad, USA).
IIF was done as previously described . Briefly, sera of patients were diluted in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) pH 7.4 (1:40 in ANCA and Hep-2 slides, 1:20 in CMA, dsDNA and rat liver, kidney and stomach slides) and incubated for 30 min at room temperature with each of the sections. Bound antibodies were detected with a fluorescent rabbit anti-human IgG immunoglobulin (Dako, DK). After each incubation, the slides were washed three times for five minutes with PBS. After the final wash, the slides were mounted in 70% glycerol in PBS and examined in a Leitz Diaplan fluorescence microscope. Slides were coded and scored blind by two independent examiners.
Assay was carried out using methods previously described [31,32]. Briefly, HeLa cells were cultured at 37°C in 5% CO2 to logarithmic phase in RPMI 1640 supplemented with 10 % heat inactivated fetal calf serum, 1 % glutamin, 10 U/ml penicillin and 60 μg/ml streptomycin. Then, the cells were incubated for 30 min at 4°C in lysis buffer (1 % Nonidet P-40, 150 mM NaCl, 20 mM Tris-HCl pH 8, 1 mM phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, 1 μ/ml aprotinin, 1 μ/ml pepstatin, 1 μ/ml leupeptin and 2 mM EDTA). After centrifugation at 20,000 × g for 30 min, the supernatants were stored at -80°C. Protein concentration was determined by BCA assay (Pierce, Pennsylvania, USA). About 400 μg of HeLa whole cell extracts were separated on 12 % SDS-PAGE. Proteins were electrotransferred to polyvinyl difluoride (PVDF) or nitrocellulose membranes in a semi-dry system for 1 h at 5.5 mA/cm2 in carbonate buffer, however ethanol 20 % (v/v) was added instead of methanol. Membranes were soaked for 1 hour in PBS-5 % bovine serum albumin (BSA) and incubated overnight with sera diluted 1:100 in PBS-BSA. After washing, the membranes were incubated for 1 hour with an alkaline phosphatase-conjugated anti-human IgG antibody (The Binding Site. UK) at 1:8000 dilution. After three washes, antigen-bound antibody was visualised with nitroblue tetrazolium and 5-bromo-4chloro-3-indolyl phosphate (Bio-Rad, Richmond, CA) following manufacturer’s instructions.
HeLa proteins were separated by 8% SDS-PAGE and electrotransferred to PVDF membranes as described above. The membranes were then stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue R-250 and destained in 50 % methanol. The proteins of interest were cut out from the air-dried membrane and incubated for 30 min with 0.5 % polivinilpirrolidone-40 in 100 mM acetic acid, digested at a enzyme-substrate ratio 1:20 in weight with trypsin in 100 mM sodium bicarbonate at pH 8.2, and then incubated in acetonitrile 95:5 (v/v) for 16 hours at 37°C. After centrifugation at 12.000 × g for 10 min the digestion mixture was acidified with 2 % trifluoroacetic acid and the supernatant injected in a C18 Vydac 2.1 × 250 mm microbore column (Beckman HPLC “System Gold”) at a flow rate of 0.15 ml/min in a chromatographic gradient of 7% acetonitrile and 0.09 % of trifluoroacetic acid in water. For peptide micro-sequencing a pulse liquid phase automatic sequencer was used (Applied Biosystems model 473). Sequence homologies obtained with the other proteins were analysed with FASTA and TFASTA programs using the update database from Swissprotein and GenEMBL.
The results of IIF were analysed using Fisher’s exact test whenever appropriate. The overall difference was considered significant when p < 0.05.
The substrate specific responses detected in sera of patients with acute and chronic Q fever infections are shown in Table 1.
A total of 54.2% of patients with acute infection had demonstrable responses to at least one of the antigens tested. One patient had antibodies to dsDNA and three had ANCA or ANA but only ASMA and CMA were detectable in a significant number of patients (29.2 % and 12.1% respectively).
On the other hand, 67.2% of the patients with chronic Q fever infections showed positive results by IIF, most of canada goose whistler parka price to various antigens tested and no differences were found between patients with or without cardiac involvement. Three patients (8.8%) elicited antibodies to dsDNA or parietal cells, four had ANCA (11.8%) and five ANA (14.7%), and, as in acute patients, the presence of ASMA was detected in a significantly higher percentage of sera (26.5%). CMA were found in 13 patients (38.3%) and both fibrillar and sarcolemma fluorescence stains were found (figure 1). The high frequency of CMA-specific antibody response detected on chronically infected patients was statistically significant (p < 0.05) as compared to patients with acute infection. Sera samples from healthy controls showed no reactivity at the dilutions tested.
Fourteen different HeLa bands, with molecular masses ranging from 20 to 100 kD, were detected by Western blot. Normal sera showed minimal if any reactivity with HeLa proteins. Twelve patients with acute Coxiella infections (57%) showed antibodies that reacted with one to three different bands per sample. By contrast, twenty-five sera of patients with chronic Coxiella infections (75%) showed antibody reactivities to a broad spectrum of up to seven different proteins. A predominant and consistent 50 kD band was observed in 14 of the patients with chronic infections (42%) and in 3 of the acute cases (14%) (Figure 2). No reactivity to this band was found in healthy controls. Sequence analysis of a fragment of this 50 kD protein showed a 98% homology with human elongation factor 1 alpha (Figure 3).
P&O Lines – SS Ranchi
The S.S. Ranchi was built for the Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O) by Hawthorn Leslie & Co. at Newcastle Upon Tyne, England and was launched on 24 January 1925. Her gross registered tonnage was 16,650, her length was 547 feet and her beam 71 feet. She was one of the P&O ‘R’ class liners from 1925 that had much of their interiors designed by Lord Inchcape’s daughter Elsie Mackay. Named after Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand state in eastern India, canada goose jackets edmonton sailed on a regular route between England and Bombay, India. Later canada goose jackets edmonton sailed to the Far East. She carried 600 passengers.
The ship was requisitioned into the Royal Navy on 27 August 1939 (at the onset of World War II) and commissioned on 23 October 1939 as the armed merchant cruiser HMS Ranchi (Pennant F15). As an armed merchant cruiser, her gross registered tonnage was 16,738.
Her sister ships SS Rawalpindi, SS Rajputana and SS Ranpura were also converted to armed merchant cruisers. Except for small corvettes, the converted passenger ships like HMS Ranchi were the only armed protection for most of the early convoys. With their six-inch guns, canada goose jackets edmonton were the only escorts that could engage German surface ships. Very few convoys received the protection of the larger cruisers or battleships. From October 1939 until February 1942 she served the East Indies Station; from March 1942 until January 1943 she was part of the Eastern Fleet (Indian Ocean). She was returned and use as a troopship by the Ministry of War Transport (MoWT) on 16 March 1943.
Two months after the end of World War II in the Pacific, in October 1945 the Ranchi sailed from Singapore to Southampton carrying amongst others released prisoners of war and civilian internees recently liberated from Japanese camps. Hilda Bates, who had been interned in Batu Lintang camp at Kuching, Borneo, wrote on 23 October 1945: “We are now speeding towards England aboard the Ranchi, which is packed with troops and other ex P.O.W.s like ourselves … In our cabin there are twelve women, – five of whom are returning home as widows.”
On 18 July 1947 the Ranchi was returned to her owners, P&O. The Ranchi was used as an emigrant ship between June 1948 and 1952, when she completed 15 voyages from England to Australia. The shipping nominal rolls are held at the Victorian Public Records Office, Melbourne, Australia. Her first post war voyage was from Tilbury Docks on 17 June 1948, although her journey was delayed into Fremantle as there were rough seas off the coast of Western Australia. During her refit at Southampton and London Docks, her second funnel was removed and she also retained her traditional P&O colors of a black funnel and cream hull. The Ranchi was broken up at Newport, Monmouthshire in 1953.
Coron, a GREEN sanctuary
MANILA, Philippines – I remember Boracay in the early 1990s when canada goose youth chilliwack parka was lights out at 9 p.m., and you needed flashlights if you wanted to stroll along the shore after sunset, and resorts had ceiling fans and no air conditioning. Coron reminds me of such a time. And how I wish canada goose youth chilliwack parka would remain this way for a long time.
For daytrippers, you can dock your banca at Smith Beach where the boatmen from Al Linsangan’s cooperative will cook up a quick healthy lunch of grilled squid and local fish, and some pork too if you wish. The boatmen come to the beach complete with reusable plates and utensils so as not to litter the beach with disposable plastic utensils. And they encourage you to take as many pictures as you wish while they fix lunch.
After lunch, you board the boat to view Kayangan Lake, a steep 70-step climb in the forest where you are gifted with beautiful postcard views of the lakes of Coron. The island has many nooks and crannies, and snorkel spots like Twin Peaks, Siete Pecados, which responsible eco guides can lead you to. Beware that there are many tricycle drivers and boatmen posing as guides. There are about 40 licensed guides in Coron, and it would be more responsible to pay the proper fees for a proper guide. I wish that the local government is able to control the number of huts situated in the lake. The lake is actually best left to be managed by its original inhabitants, the Tagbanua, because they know how to preserve their environs.
You could also go by paddle boat (I do not know how long it would take to paddle from Coron town to the island though) so as not to disturb the animals that have the island as their natural habitat. Visitors should also not use insect repellants, lotions and other chemical canada goose youth chilliwack parka that could leech into the pristine waters, which are so clear you would surely be tempted to jump in.
To keep Coron as virgin as possible, a group of eco advocates have joined together to form the movement called The Coron Initiative. The movement seeks to teach tour guides to be eco guides, to teach resort owners how to buy green and serve green products, to teach boatmen how to preserve nature and to rally everyone to help save Coron from becoming another commercial destination.
A day trip may not be enough to see Coron island as it has many beaches and snorkel sites. A few more days are needed, too, to explore the rest of the Calamianes Islands – Culion, Linapacan, Coron and Busuanga – and that is just for a quickie view. Even Coron natives still have not explored all their neighboring isles.
Al Linsangan III is the community leader and head of Calamianes Culture Conservation Network Inc. He also operates responsible and eco-friendly green tours.
Hilbert Enriquez is a locavore and restaurant owner who infuses local flavor in his cuisine at Santino’s Grill.
Ivan Fernandez operates eco-friendly Coron Village Lodge and has adopted green ways like using used cooking oil for their candles, retrofitting their lodges with eco-friendly materials, etc.
Rene Villegas shares his knowledge about Biology with the eco tour guides, promotes closed season fishing which is three days before and after the New Moon so we can save our favorite fish made into the famous lamayo danggit.
Eric Raymundo has volunteered his personal time to teach resort owners how to be energy efficient at the lowest price possible.
Caloy Libosada teaches tour guides how to be eco-friendly and how to appreciate birds and birdwatching as a tour possibility.
Chin Fernandez, another birdwatcher and Darayonan Lodge operator, promotes birdwatching tours.
PJ Aranador shares with resort developers how to be more efficient in using native materials while keeping the Tagbanua culture in their designs, rather than taking inspiration from Bali or other cultures.
Susan Santos de Cardenas is the moving force behind Sustainable Tourism and has helped CCCNI find partners in the international community despite her being Japan-based.
There are many more advocates who can help preserve Coron and its sister islands and many more who can join the movement even while being a tourist or an investor. There are 688 more islands available for sale or investment and we wish developers would toe the line in keeping virgin islands like Coron the way they were when we found them. Let’s make it not just more fun in the Philippines, but greener too.

Another recent lady celeb to provide a deluxe men’s watch to her man is Khloe Kardashian. After only months of dating, Khloe and L.a Lakers forward Lamar Odom married. After the wedding celebration, Lamar transformed 30 and Khloe offered him or her a strong gold Breitling watch for his birthday celebration. She points out “he is a watch enthusiast, so he was past pleased.” While the majority of Breitlings do not set you back as much as a Rolex, they can and while canada goose ville quebec was not stated how much the watch was valued at, Breitlings can range in cost from $2,000 to greater than $100,000. Among the leisured class group of Hollywood, Breitling watches have become fairly the standing sign. Produced aviation aviators, these watches include a higher variety of difficulties and distinct motions; 2 factors which influence the cost of a watch. Not to mention that they are made from metals. However, unlike Rolexes, Cartier watches, Breitling watches are not generally precious jewelry watches – the kind that are dressed up in great deals of bling.

If you prefer to get real watches at a minimal cost, there are numerous spots that sell real branded watches and look for marked down or marked down products.
Of course, workmanship is always where building a deluxe watch brand name will be most afflicted. The treatment by these 4 titans in the business reveals absolutely nothing if not a focused attention to specific and a commitment to making the right choices related to design and cost. These brands constructed themselves from the ground up and have taken care of to make in roads in to every rich element our culture. It has to be the sweetest triumph for these brands to understand that they have developed such a wealth of goodwill from their clients and from watch enthusiasts as a whole.
