L'articolo mette insieme le evidenze grafiche e testuali di Pirro Ligorio e altri su un esempio straordinario di una columna caelata romana. Esso stabilisce senza ombra di dubbio che la colonna esisteva e che fu scavata dal fondo marino vicino a Misenum da Ludovico Montalto intorno al 1520. La colonna fu portata a Napoli ma langui sulla riva o sulla banchina al Castello dell'Ovo probabilmente fino alia metà del XVI secolo, da quando fu pesantemente esposta alle intemperie, dopo di che nulla si è più saputo di essa. Gli autori discutono le possibilità che la colonna possa essere stata parte di un arco di trionfo o di una colonna, o votiva o onorifica, non incassata, del tipo visto sul famoso paesaggio portuale di Stabiae, che verosimilmente rappresenta Misenum.
Alongitudinal study of growth and physical fitness of twins and their parents was designed in 1985. The major aims of this Leuven Longitudinal Twin Study were to quantify the genetic and environmental determination of (1) somatic characteristics, biological maturation and physical performance characteristics during the growth process, (2) the growth and developmental patterns, and (3) the covariation in somatic and performance characteristics.
Previous findings show strong evidence for the role of retinoblastoma (Rb) in myoblast proliferation and differentiation. However, it is not known whether variation in the retinoblastoma gene (RB1) is responsible for normal variation in human muscle strength. Therefore, a linkage analysis for quantitative traits was performed on 329 young male siblings from 146 families with muscle strength, using a polymorphic marker in RB1 (D13S153 on 13q14.2). Trunk strength, a general strength indicator that requires activation of large muscle groups, was measured on a Cybex TEF isokinetic dynamometer. We found evidence for linkage between locus D13S153 at 13q14.2 and several measurements of trunk flexion with LOD scores between 1.62 and 2.78 (.002 < p < .0002). No evidence for linkage was found with trunk extension. This first exploration of the relationship between RB1 and human muscle strength through linkage analysis warrants efforts for further fine mapping of this region.
Some of the most explicit statements in early Christian and medieval sources about the functions of visual images in churches are notable for their silence regarding the liturgical significance of wall decoration. There is talk of imagery of the Old and New Testaments instructing the laity so that they should know ‘the high deeds of the servants of God and may be prompted to imitate them’, or at least to remember them. Images might be said to ‘decorate with beauty the house of the Lord’, but it is difficult to find it stated anywhere that the monumental cycles that still arrest our gazes in many of the churches were executed to ‘illustrate’, or to ‘represent’, or to ‘dramatize’ the liturgy that was celebrated in those sacred edifices
