Pałac w Sieniawie

Pałac w Sieniawie – zbudowany przez hetmana wielkiego koronnego Adama Mikołaja Sieniawskiego na początku XVIII w. Dzisiejszy wygląd uzyskał podczas przebudowy z lat 1881-1883 dokonanej przez Czartoryskich.
W latach 1664-1680 na terenie dzisiejszego parku i pałacu zaczęto urządzać rezydencję o charakterze obronnym. Miała ona plan kwadratu z czterema ziemnymi bastionami w narożnikach

.
Na początku XVIII w. hetman Sieniawski założył tu park i wybudował w latach 1718-1720 pomarańczarnię. Po przebudowie pomarańczarnię zaczęto nazywać od 1726 r. pałacem letnim. Do końca XVIII w. pałacyk był przebudowywany co najmniej trzykrotnie. W początkach XIX w. jego wygląd opisał Leon Demokowski w dziełku “W moich wspomnieniach” następująco: pałac sieniawski był murowany, bez piętra i zawierał wtedy oprócz ogromnej sieni jeden duży salon i kilka pokojów, stanowiących mieszkanie księstwa; w sieni ustawiono ogromne organy, w sieni tej pospolicie jadano. W salonie kilka karykatur angielskich i mnóstwo sztychów, wyobrażających waleczne czyny wojska austriackiego w kampanii z Francuzami, stanowiły jedyne ozdoby. W jednym z kątów umieszczony był bilard. Właścicielami pałacu byli już wówczas Czartoryscy.
W latach 1881-1883 dokonano przebudowy według projektu Bolesława Podczaszyńskiego. Nad oboma skrzydłami dobudowane zostały piętra i pałac uzyskał zachowany do dziś wygląd i późnobarokowy charakter. Miał 36 pomieszczeń i kubaturę 2088 m³.
W czasie I wojny światowej ordynat sieniawski książę Adam Ludwik Czartoryski oddał pomieszczenia pałacu na szpital polowy dla zakaźnie chorych austriackich żołnierzy. Pałac uległ zniszczeniu. Dokonano tylko prowizorycznego zabezpieczenia a książę zamieszkał po wojnie w drewnianym dworku obok. Pod koniec lat trzydziestych XX wieku książę August Czartoryski rozpoczął remont pałacu, przerwała go jednak II wojna światowa.
Aż do lat osiemdziesiątych XX w. pałac nie miał gospodarza. Tkwił w ruinie, był okradany. Straż pożarna ćwiczyła na nim gaszenie pożarów. Dopiero nowy właściciel, przedsiębiorstwo “Iglopol” wyremontował a właściwie odbudował konstrukcję pałacu w latach osiemdziesiątych

. W latach dziewięćdziesiątych XX w. pałac stał się własnością AWRSP, która doprowadziła pałac i otaczający go park oraz budynki towarzyszące do obecnego stanu.
Obecnie mieści się w pałacu hotel z restauracją w oficynie dworskiej.
Największe znaczenie miał pałac w XIX w. gdy był jedną z głównych siedzib Czartoryskich. Zaczął odgrywać rolę jednego z centrów galicyjskiego życia politycznego, umysłowego i kulturowego. Gościł tu Julian Ursyn Niemcewicz, Tadeusz Kościuszko. Bywał car Aleksander I. Juliusz Kossak na pamiątkę wizyty pozostawił namalowany przez siebie wizerunek pałacu.
Pomimo zasług Czartoryskich jako mecenasów i kolekcjonerów sztuki

, w Sieniawie nie było zbyt bogatych zbiorów. Ściany pałacu były ozdobione portretami Sieniawskich, Czartoryskich, Poniatowskich. Przechowywano tu atrybuowany Norblinowi cykl miniatur ilustrujących “Metamorfozy” Owidiusza. Pokoje umeblowane były wartościowymi meblami canada goose parka black friday.

; she remains the only student ever elected to the Berkeley City Council. She ran unopposed in the general election for the California State Assembly seat in the 14th district, which was held by incumbent Loni Hancock (who was termed out), was reelected in 2010 and again in 2012 to her third and final term.

Skinner attended the University of California, Berkeley, and earned both a B.S. from the College of Natural Resources and a Masters in Education from the UC Berkeley School of Education. As a student, she was a leader in the Anti-Apartheid Movement, served as the Academic Affairs Vice President of the ASUC, the student government, and was a founder of ASGE, the Union of Graduate Student Employees.

Skinner coordinated Loni Hancock’s 2002 State Assembly campaign and was a Field Manager for Barbara Lee’s 2002 Congressional campaign. She has worked for the campaigns of several local, state, and national democratic candidates, including presidential candidates Al Gore and John Kerry.
Skinner was appointed to the East Bay Regional Park Board of Directors in March 2006 to fill a vacancy caused by the death of incumbent Jean Siri. She was appointed by a 6-0 vote and was selected over several other candidates for the position, including former Berkeley mayor Shirley Dean. Skinner was then elected to the East Bay Regional Park Board in 2006 with 84% of the vote. Her park district included parts of Albany, Berkeley, El Cerrito, El Sobrante, Emeryville, Kensington, Richmond, San Pablo, Pinole & Oakland.
Skinner was considered a likely candidate for the State Assembly as early as 2006 and had previously considered a run in 2002. She ultimately announced her candidacy in late January 2008. She defeated several opponents in the primary election; the most well-known of which included Richmond Councilmember Tony Thurmond, Berkeley Councilmember Kriss Worthington, and Berkeley resident Dr. Phil Polakoff. She was elected to the State Assembly in 2008 and re-elected in 2010 and 2012.
Skinner pushed legislation to tax online sales that was approved in 2009 as part of the state budget. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the legislation.
On 19 January 2011 Skinner introduced similar legislation in the form of AB153. The bill requires out-of-state online sellers with affiliates in California to collect sales tax on purchases made by state residents. The affiliate provision was included to ensure that only sellers with a California nexus are taxed, as required by federal law. “This legislation will close the current loophole in tax law which has allowed out-of-state companies to avoid collecting California sales and use tax,” stated Skinner. Skinner estimated that AB153 could produce between $250 million and $500 million per year in new revenue. She and other supporters of the bill believe that the election of Jerry Brown to the governorship and support from retailers such as Barnes & Noble will help the measure become law.

In 1978, a national survey of 1,049 married women between the ages of 68 and 78 were interviewed between the months of March and July in order to investigate low fertility during the 1920s and 1930s and the women of childbearing age during those decades. In addition to the general purpose, the study was designed to gather information to test specific hypotheses concerning demographic and socioeconomic differentials in fertility, the prevalence of contraceptive practice and the methods employed, the extent to which subfecundity and sterility may have contributed to low fertility, and the timing patterns and childbearing pace of the time. The interview collected information on each respondent’s family planning, contraception usage, pregnancy history, fecundity, infertility, fertility, and maternal and infant health. Besides demographic characteristics and background information about the respondents, information was also gathered on their household composition

, and the level of eye contact between individuals, as well as the paralinguistics of tone and intonation of sentences had to be considered.
Based on that the there were three main goals for NECA. The first goal was the general development of a platform that allowed the simulation and interaction of conversational characters.
The second goal was the design of a multi-user web-application called the Socialite, that allowed social “face to face” emotion-based interactions between animated agents on the internet. The Socialite user could select a set of avatars to interact with and after learning about the user’s personal preferences, the avatars helped the user navigate a virtual world and get in touch with other agents and users.
The third component was eShowRoom as an e-commerce platform demonstration that allowed for the display of products in the commercial domain. In the eShowRoom application, two or three virtual agents could be seen discussing various features of a product among themselves in a natural setting.
One of NECA’s designs was the Rich Representation Language, specifically designed to facilitate the interaction of two or more animated agents. RRL influenced the design of other languages such as the Player Markup Language which extended parts of the design of RRL.
The design of RRL aimed to automatically generate much of the facial animation as well as the skeletal animation based on the content of the conversations. Due to the interdependence of nonverbal communication components such as facial features on the spoken words, no animation is possible in the language without considering the context of the scene in which the animation takes place – e.g. anger versus joy.
