Legendary Locals of Center City Philadelphia

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95843319&cjsku=95843319...
Philadelphia is a hard mistress when it comes to honoring native talent, and the city has more than its fair share of notable figures. Consider colorful politicians like Frank Rizzo and Richardson Dilworth, international celebrities like Grace Kelly, sports legends like Connie Mack, Philadelphia Museum of Art icons like Anne dHarnoncourt, or national radio personalities like Terry Gross. Business tycoons such as John Wanamaker and Russell Conwell, founder of Temple University, made many contributions to the city. Pearl Buck, author of The Good Earth, and Christopher Morley, Americas G.K. Chesterton, created legacies of their own. Other legends like the nearly forgotten Agnes Repplier, a world-famous essayist and contemporary of Henry James, and poet Daniel Hoffman, the designated US poet laureate in 19731974, have helped enrich the citys literary reputation. There are Marian Anderson, Mario Lanza, and Hollywood actor Kevin Bacon, whose fame is equaled by his city planner father, Edmund. Architects like Frank Furness, Louis Kahn, and Vincent Kling helped transform the city into an international destination. And there are many notables looming outside the margins of this book, waiting for their day of discovery.

City at the Center of the World

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2037184&cjsku=2037184...
In the seventeenth century, local Jesuits and Franciscans imagined Quito as the new Rome. It was the site of miracles and home of saintly inhabitants, the origin of crusades into the surrounding wilderness, and the purveyor of civilization to the entire region. By the early twentieth century, elites envisioned the city as the heart of a modern, advanced societypoised at the physical and metaphysical centers of the world.     In this original cultural history, Ernesto Capello analyzes the formation of memory, myth, and modernity through the eyes of Quito's diverse populations. By employing Mikhail Bakhtin's concept of chronotopes, Capello views the configuration of time and space in narratives that defined Quito's identity and its place in the world. He explores the proliferation of these imaginings in architecture, museums, monuments, tourism, art, urban planning, literature, religion, indigenous rights, and politics. To Capello, these tropes began to crystallize at the end of the nineteenth century, serving as a tool for distinct groups who laid claim to history for economic or political gain during the upheavals of modernism.       As Capello reveals, Quito's society and its stories mutually constituted each other. In the process of both destroying and renewing elements of the past, each chronotope fed and perpetuated itself. Modern Quito thus emerged at the crux of Hispanism and Liberalism, as an independent global society struggling to keep the memory of its colonial and indigenous roots alive.

Dead Center

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1650146&cjsku=1650146...
A city with eight million people has eight million ways to die For fifteen years, Shiya Ribowsky worked as a medicolegal investigator in New York City's medical examiner's officethe largest, most sophisticated organization of its kind in the world. Utilizing his background in medicine, he led the investigations of more than eight thousand individual deaths, becoming a key figure in some of New York's most bizarre death cases and eventually taking charge of the largest forensic investigation ever attempted: identifying the dead in the aftermath of the September 11 tragedies. Now, in this mesmerizing book, Ribowsky pulls back the curtain on the New York City's medical examiner's office, giving an enthralling, never-before-seen glimpse into death and the city. Born and raised in New York City's orthodox Jewish community, Ribowsky seems an unlikely candidate for this macabre profession. Nevertheless he has forsaken a promising career of medical work with the living, descending instead into the realm of the dead, enticed by the challenge of confronting death on a daily basis. Taking you through the vermin-infested Bowery flophouses and posh Upper East Side apartments of the city's dead, Ribowsky explores in gruesome detail the skeletons that hang in the Big Apple's closets. Combing through the autopsy room, he also exposes the grim secrets that only a scalpel and a dead body can tell and explains how forensic investigation does not merely solve crimesit saves lives. But it is in the aftermath of September 11 that the ME's office is handed its biggest challenge: to identify as many of the fallen as possible. With poignant descriptions, Ribowsky provides a dramatic account of the office's diligent and unflappable work with the families of the victims, helping them emerge from the ashes of this tragedy while displaying the strength, grit, intelligence, and compassion that Americans expect from true New Yorkers. At once compelling and heartbreaking, Dead Center i s a story of New York unlike any other, blending the haunting with the sublime, while painting a striking portrait of death (and life) in the city that never sleeps.

Branding Center

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=751027&cjsku=751027...
Global agierende Markenfirmen nutzen heute strker als je zuvor Grostadtzentren als Bhne, um ihre Produkte werbewirksam zu prsentieren. Dabei beschrnken sie sich lngst nicht mehr auf temporre Manahmen wie Plakate oder Events, sondern investieren zunehmend in permanente Einrichtungen, die als Bauten das Stadtbild mit prgen. Diese Entwicklung wird am Potsdamer Platz in Berlin besonders augenfllig. Dort hat der japanische Konzern Sony einen multifunktionalen Grokomplex errichtet, der die Europazentrale des Unternehmens beherbergt und gleichzeitig eine Touristenattraktion ist, die als dreidimensionale Werbung dient. Mit seinem spektakulren Zeltdach, das schnell zu einem Sinnbild des neuen Berliner Zentrums avancierte, zieht das Sony Center zahlreiche Neugierige an, die sich in den Gastronomie- und Entertainmenteinrichtungen vergngen und im viergeschossigen Ausstellungsbereich die neueste Unterhaltungselektronik in einer Art Dauerwerbeveranstaltung vorfhren lassen. Das in Berlin erprobte Prinzip, mit aufsehenerregender Architektur Besucher anzulocken, sie zu unterhalten und dabei gleichzeitig fr Sony-Produkte zu werben, hat der Konzern auch bei seinen kurz darauf realisierten Groprojekten Metreon in San Francisco und Aqua City in Tokyo angewandt. In der kalifornischen Metropole versucht Sony mit seinem Entertainmentkomplex vor allem jngere Touristen und Technikfreaks aus dem nahe gelegenen Silicon Valley anzusprechen. Die Besucher sollen dann in Zukunft den Firmennamen Sony mit angenehmen Erinnerungen an das Erlebnis ihres San Francisco- Aufenthalts verbinden und dadurch eine langfristige emotionale Prferenz fr die japanische Marke aufbauen. Ganz hnlich ist Sonys Kino- und Shoppingcenter in Tokyo vor allem auf jugendliche Vorortbewohner und Touristen ausgerichtet.

Madam Walker Theatre Center

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95920609&cjsku=95920609...
As they watched construction of the block-long flatiron building brick by brick throughout 1927, African American residents of Indianapolis could scarcely contain their pride. This new headquarters of the Madam C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company, with its terra-cotta trimmed facade, was to be more than corporate offices and a factory for what then was one of America's most successful black businesses. In fact, it was designed as "a city within a city," with an African Art Deco theater, ballroom, restaurant, drugstore, beauty salon, beauty school, and medical offices. Generations of African American families met for Sunday dinner at the Coffee Pot, enjoyed first-run movies and live performances in the Walker Theatre, and hosted dances in the Casino. Today, this National Historic Landmark is an arts center anchoring the Indiana Avenue Cultural District.
