1.14. Memory

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

I get "out of memory" errors in a certain program, even though I just added more memory to my computer. How do I get the program to know about the extra memory? [9]

Mac OS X eliminates this problem completely. But in OS 9.x and older, when you launch a program, it asks the system only for the amount of RAM set as its Preferred Size. You need to set the program in question to ask for more RAM. To do this, quit the program, and highlight the program icon. Then select Get Info from the File menu or type

-I. At the bottom of the Info window, you should see a section called Memory Requirements. (With OS 8.5 and newer, select Show: Memory from the popup first.) Then increase the Preferred Size by 50 or 100%. If it says 4,096, try 8,000 (or 8,192 if you like base2).

Before increasing a program's preferred memory setting, it's a good idea to check "About this Mac" or "About this Computer" under the Apple menu in the Finder to check how much built-in memory you have. This will also show you how much memory is being used by the OS and other programs that are running. Don't set a single program to use more memory than is available. If you want to be able to run several programs at one time, be sure that the preferred memory of all the programs you will run simultaneously, plus the memory used by Mac OS, is less than the total built-in memory.

Appendix A Faqs about Goya, Health, and Fitness

APPENDIX A

FAQs about GOYA,

Health, and Fitness

If someone wants to lose weight, isn’t cardio more important than weight training?

A. No! Both exercises burn calories, but cardio alone has one major shortcoming. It does not build muscle. Building muscle is the key. Muscle requires energy. The more muscle you have, the higher and hotter your “engine” (that is, your metabolism) burns. Weight training builds muscle. Take out a pad and pencil and write this down. A fat cell in your body requires only TWO calories a day to maintain itself. A muscle cell requires THIRTY-EIGHT! Do you get it?! Let me explain further. The fatter you get, the less you move. The less you move, the less muscle you maintain. The more muscle you lose, the less calories your body requires. In short, the fatter you get, the easier it gets to get FATTER. It’s a nasty cycle that you can stop only by moving your ass—and that includes both cardio and weight training!

Isn’t it true that to get rid of my “spare tire,” I only have to do crunches and sit-ups?

28. Femme accroupie en chaussures et
en bas de couleur sombre, vue de dos, 1912,

gouache, aquarelle et mine de plomb sur papier,

48,9 x 32 cm, The Metropolitan Museum of Art,

New York, legs de Scotfield Thayer

 

 

 

En 1908, Schiele participe pour la premire fois une exposition publique dans la salle impriale du couvent de Klosterneuburg. Il sagit de paysages en petit format quil avait peints en plein air durant lt et jusquau dbut de lautomne. Selon Jane Kallir, vers la fin de lanne 1908, Schiele a pratiquement dj peint la moiti de toutes les huiles quil devait raliser au cours de son existence.

 

 

 

Ce nest quen 1909 que la cration artistique de Schiele change de faon radicale. Il quitte lAcadmie et tout particulirement le professeur ractionnaire Christian Griepenkerl et fonde le groupe de lArt Nouveau (Neukunstgruppe ) en compagnie dAnton Peschka, Albert Paris von Gtersloh, Anton Faistauer, Sebastian Isepp, Franz Wiegele et quelques autres. Ce qui fait le succs de ces artistes nouveaux, cest leur diffrence. Le repli de Schiele sur lexprience subjective de lindividu constitue la raction lhistoricisme viennois et au grand Hans Makart, peintre au train de vie princier, trs populaire auprs des autorits. Schiele se distancie des paraboles allgoriques de celui-ci, les voiles pompeux tombent. Il prend contre-pied les valeurs traditionnelles du catholicisme et les met au service de la sexualit. Sa stratgie : il veut choquer. Dans le tableau au titre provocateur de Lhostie rouge , Schiele est allong sur le dos, vtu dune chemise orange, le bas-ventre nu, ses jambes largement cartes rappellent le geste dabandon de la femme consentante ; devant lui, une femme nue aux cheveux blonds-roux tient un norme phallus tout en regardant le spectateur. Dans dautres tableaux, des moines font lamour aux nonnes et aux femmes tombes enceintes malencontreusement que la socit viennoise, aux murs svres, rejette volontiers. La nonne prie, nue et meurtrie devant L'Agonie du Christ sur la Croix. (Georg Trakl, Munich, 1974). En outre, Schiele peint des couples homosexuels, il transgresse les tabous et stimule les fantasmes des spectateurs de son temps. Par ailleurs, la certitude de Schiele se voit renforce par lexposition dart internationale Vienne o il sera reprsent par quatre de ses uvres aux cts de tableaux expressionnistes de Vincent van Gogh, Edvard Munch et Oskar Kokoschka. Il fait la connaissance de Josef Hoffmann qui dirige les ateliers viennois (Wiener Werksttten ). En dcembre 1909, la premire exposition du groupe de lArt nouveau a lieu dans la galerie dart Pisko.
