هانس شارون (متولد 1893) معمار آلمانی
هانس شارون، معمار اکسپرسیونیست اهل آلمان بود که عمدهٔ شهرتش به خاطر طراحی تالار کنسرت فیلارمونیک برلین است. شارون یکی از پیشتازان معماری نوین آلمان است که در دهه های 1920 و 1930 دست به کار تعدادی از خانه های تجربی و پروژه های خانه سازی شد و در تهیه پروژه های مربوط به نقشه کشی شهری فعالیت داشت. در دوران تسلط نازی ها و سال های جنگ در آلمان باقی ماند اما فقط برای ساختن بناهای کوچک مجاز بود. بنای فیلارمونیک مایه گرفته از مفهوم تاتر جامع والتر گروپیوس بود که در آن حاظران در تالار، پیرامون صحنه - در این مورد ارکستر - گرد می آمدند. این اندیشهف در پی دستیابی به پیوستگی هر چه بیشتر بین شنونده ها و نوازنده ها بود.

اولین چیزی که تو ذوقم خورد و به نظرم باید مورد توجه قرار بگیره اینِ که وقتی آپ رو باز می کنیم به شکل پیشفرض موضوعات داغ باز میشه که غلطه (البته به نظر بنده) و باید صفحه لینک های داغ باز بشه. نکته بعدی اینکه در بخش اشتراک گذاری اگه بشه اینستاگرام رو هم اضافه کنید خوب میشه.یعنی از اون لینک عکس بگیره و در اینستاگرام به اشتراک بذاره. مورد بعدی اینِ که وقتی لینکی رو باز می کنم نمی تونم زوم کنم ...این مشکل باعث میشه که نتونم نوشته های ریز رو بخونم. با تشکر.

اوضاع ورزش جوانان اصلا خوب نیست؛ اولویتی که از آخر اول است
هر سال با فرا رسیدن هفته جوان، بار دیگر این مسئله یادآوری می شود که در بخش فرهنگی ورزش برای جوانان چه اقداماتی انجام شده است و با نقطه ضعف ها چه باید کرد اما این موضوع همچنان بی اهمیت است. هفته ای که از آن به عنوان هفته جوان نام برده می شود شاید یادآوری و زنگ هشداری باشد برای مسئولان ورزشی که در زمینه تخصصی خود در بخش فرهنگی برای جوانان چه اقداماتی انجام داده اند. به گزارش نگام نیوز، بدون شک ورزش خود یک عامل بازدارنده از بسیاری از آسیب های اجتماعی است اما درون همین ورزش نیز مخاطرات فراوانی برای ورزشکاران وجود دارد که با نادیده گرفتن آنها و بی اهمیتی به مقوله فرهنگی در ورزش همین الگوهای نمونه ورزشی می توانند ترغیب کننده برخی از عموم جامعه به ناهنجاری ها باشند. از همین روست که وزارت ورزش و جوانان . . . .

Wall Street puts finishing touch on best week since March

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen speaks at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University in Cambridge, MassachusettsWall Street rose on Friday and capped off its strongest week since March after U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said an interest-rate hike would likely be appropriate "in the coming months." Yellen's is the most important voice in a chorus of policymakers recently suggesting that the U.S. economy has improved enough to warrant tighter borrowing costs, with a growing number of investors now expecting a hike in June or July. "As we look at our place in the global economy, things just seem to be improving to a point where it certainly looks likely that June or July will be the next launching point," said Paul Springmeyer, portfolio manager at the Private Client Reserve of U.S. Bank. "With the increased strength, we should get up off of those historically low levels where we are." After Yellen's speech, traders raised their expectations of a June rate hike to 34 percent from 30 percent, according to CME Group.

Saudi Aramco boosting market share as it prepares for listing: CEO

Amin H.

Nasser also told Reuters that the state-owned group was pressing on with preparations for its partial privatization via a stock market listing, which he said lay at the heart of Riyadh's "Vision 2030", a long-term economic plan headed by Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

File photo of people at Lehman Brothers headquarters in New YorkThere is not enough information in the public section of the "living wills" major banks file with U.S. regulators to fully explain how the organizations could undergo bankruptcy without taxpayer aid, the country's financial monitor said on Wednesday.
