SAN FRANCISCO Nike Air Max 270 Womens Flyknit Sale , July 3 (Xinhua) -- A team of researchers,including some from Stanford University, have created a new archiveof almost 4,000 digitized drawings, prints Nike Air Max 270 Mens Flyknit Sale , photographs andsketches of historic Rome from the 16th to 20th centuries.

The pieces were collected by renowned Roman archaeologistRodolfo Lanciani, who sought to document the entire history ofRome's archeology up to the end of the 19th century. And thedigital exhibit, which went online in the spring, is expected tohelp study Rome's transformation over the centuries.

After Lanciani's death in 1929, his library Nike Air Max 270 Womens Sale , which contains morethan 21,000 items, was sold to Italy's National Institute ofArchaeology and Art History in Rome. Archaeologists, historians,architects and other researchers who study ancient cities have usedthe collection to glean valuable information about Rome's historyand structure.

"These materials are very important and have been used by manydifferent scholars Nike Air Max 270 Mens Sale , but access to them is quite limited," saidRoman archaeologist Giovanni Svevo, who also worked on the digitalarchive, which is a culmination of a two-year collaboration amongStanford's Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), theStanford University Libraries Nike Air Max 270 Light Bone Sale , University of Oregon, DartmouthCollege and the Italian government.

"Rome is a layered city," said Erik Steiner, co-director of theSpatial History Project at CESTA. "To be able to see that historyyou need to look through those layers, and this collection helpsthat process."

Viewing Lanciani's collection requires a visit to the historic15th-century Palazzo Venezia in central Rome. It is on the fourthfloor and in its own dedicated room Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit Sale , which is open for only a fewhours during weekdays. Only one folder from the collection can beviewed at a time.

So the professors and researchers set out to bring some of thecollection onto the internet. They partnered with Italy's Ministryof Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and the NationalInstitute to scan and create high-resolution images of each of thethousands of materials in the collection.

Each digital object was categorized and tied to a descriptiveset of data, so it could be properly stored and searched online.And the digital images and all associated descriptions are nowpermanently preserved in the Stanford Digital Repository.

It is part of a larger effort to recreate the spatial history ofRome, a project named "Mapping Rome," that Steiner and Tice beganaround 2004.

"We believe this project is important for two reasons: itprovides accessibility to a precious archival collection and, morebroadly Nike Air Max 270 Sale , it demonstrates a method whereby similar materials can bemade available to scholars, students and the general public throughthe digital humanities," Tice was quoted as saying in a recent newsrelease from Stanford.

Beside allowing access to any scholar in the world, Steinernoted, digitizing the archives also ensures their futurepreservation.

NAIROBI Air Max 270 Womens Light Bone Sale , Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- The horrific terror attack that claimed 28 civilians in Kenya`s Mandera County on Saturday is a confirmation the east African nation remains a soft target for militants from neighboring Somalia.

Kenyan officials confirmed that Somalia terror group Al-Shabaab hijacked a Nairobi-bound bus several kilometers from Mandera town and killed passengers based on their religious affiliation.

Following Al-Shabaab's latest attack in Mandera County, experts and ordinary civilians stressed that a revamp of the entire security architecture was urgent to defeat terrorism.

Mwenda Mbijiwe, a security analyst regretted that Kenya's vulnerability to terrorism remains high thanks to weak border surveillance and failure to act on timely intelligence reports.

During a live debate at a national television station, Mbijiwe emphasized that Kenya must revamp intelligence gathering, enhance community policing and border patrols to minimize terror attacks.

"The Mandera terrorist attack exposed our soft underbelly and it seems lessons of the past have not sunk in our collective psyche as a nation. We must adopt new strategies to slay the dragon of terror Air Max 270 Mens Light Bone Sale ," Mbijiwe said.

Kenya was cited by a recent global report to be among the top five countries in Africa grappling with terrorism. The East African nation has suffered terror attacks since 1998 and the menace spiked in 2011 when its troops launched an onslaught against Al-Shabaab inside Somalia. Kenyan Defense Forces were credited for degrading Al-Shabaab though the insurgents are still vicious.

Mbijiwe said the death of Al-Shabaab kingpins has dealt a huge blow to the terrorist network but Kenyan security forces should not be complacent.

"By cutting off key sources of funding and eliminating the masterminds, we have undermined the capacity for Al-shabaab to state a devastating attack. However, vigilance should not be relaxed since the militants are still roaming along the vast and porous border with Somalia," said Mbijiwe.

Kenya should replicate models on effective intelligence gathering from Israel, China and the United States to deter terror attacks. Mbijiwe noted that though terror is a global challenge Air Max 270 Womens Flyknit Sale , some countries have contained it thanks to investments in surveillance technology and efficient coordination among security agencies.

"Officers from the national intelligence service should not operate from the offices. They should penetrate the grassroots to collect real-time information to help foil terrorists' plots," Mbijiwe noted.

Kenya's vast and lawless border with Somalia has provided a safe passage for Al-shabaab militants and their collaborators. Mbijiwe emphasized that Kenya must retrain and equip border patrol guards to enable them to apprehend infiltrators.

"Heavily armed militants are able to shuttle between Somalia and Kenya to carry out their evil mission. We must enhance.
