Doctor Roussel entrusted his son’s training to a friend of his,</p><p>Maillard, winner of the Prix de Rome. Maillard’s studio had once belonged to Delacroix, so Roussel would often hear the great</p><p>Romantic’s name mentioned there, and was to be influenced by his vigorous colours in the years to come, although Maillard himself was entirely committed to the academic manner of painting. Vuillard,</p><p>Roussel’s fellow student at the Lycée, followed suit and began studying under Maillard also. It was with Vuillard’s family that Roussel found refuge when his parents separated, and he subsequently married</p><p>Vuillard’s sister.</p><p>The 1890s saw a strong similarity between the creative activities of</p><p>Roussel and Vuillard.

<p> Three forms of screen sharing connectionsBonjour, direct, and Back to My Macall use Mac OS Xs Screen Sharing program and thus share the same underlying basic controls. ( Share via iChat is covered independently in the previous chapter.) The differences have to do with how each form connects. </p><p> In this chapter, you will prepare to use the standard screen-sharing feature in Mac OSX by turning on and setting up the Screen Sharing service and by learning your way around in the Screen Sharing application. In subsequent chapters, I explain thespecifics of connecting and managing each method. </p><p> The Screen Sharing program, hidden in /System/Library/CoreServices , handles screen sharing, but typically you dont launchit directly. When you click the Share Screen button intheFinder to connect via Bonjour to a local computer or via Back toMy Mac to a remote machine, Mac OS X launches Screen Sharing. However, its possible to launch the program manually, as described in Share via a Direct Network Connection . </p><p>Note: iChat screen sharing doesnt use the Screen Sharing program directly, but it does employ many of the same underlying system components.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362983-take-control-of-screen-sharing-in-lion">See more</a>

<p>believe ice hockey was based mostly on English field hockey.</p><p>However, American Indians in Nova Scotia, Canada, were playing a game similar to ice hockey in the early 1800s.

Two teams from McGill</p><p>University in Montreal, Canada, played in the first game. That game was very violent. However, it soon began spreading in popularity throughout Canada.</p><p>Ice hockey was being played in the United States by 1893.</p><p>The sport had spread to European countries such as England,</p><p>Scotland, and France by 1897. And by 1905, organized competition began between squads from France and Belgium.</p><p>Soon the sport was in need of an international organization.</p><p>So in 1908 the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) formed in Paris, France. It began with just five European members.
