(TOOL) - Novità IATE | Tra di noi | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Interessanti novità dalla banca dati terminologica europea IATE (InterActive Terminology for Europe) che da alcune settimane ha messo a disposizione una versione scaricabile della sua vasta raccolta terminologica, fatta di oltre 8 milioni di termini nelle 24 lingue europee.

(EN) - Armour of the 1470's | -Suzerain- | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Ok, splitting this off from the critique of the terrible artwork armour thread; over the next while, I'm going to do a series of imagedumps here about armour from c. 1470 - give or take a bit either way. I'll later do another one about weapons too, which is much more my field of speciality.

I'm going to aim to cover as many areas of interest as practical, within the context of English armour for the wars of the roses. England, however, was'nt particularly renowned for its armour manufacture. The majority of metal armour was imported from europe, where it was mass produced for the soldiers and upper classes alike.

now, to start off, I'm simply going to post a harness of armour from about 1475, give or take a decade or so, which has been marked up with the names of parts.

its a good reference for the majority of the terms used, since while most people have better things to do than learn what a poleyn or cuisse is."

(EN) - Complete Glossary of Shoe Shapes | Randy Miller | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"You wear them on your feet every day — that is unless you're Shailene Woodley — and whether they're classic or sexy, flat or sky-high, the shoes you choose say a lot about you. But what can you say for them?

Sure, you know you're wearing a lace-up menswear shoe, but would you be able to say if that shoe was a brogue, wingtip, or oxford? Trick question — it could be all three. Don't get stumped on the street the next time you're complimented on your footwear. Because much like the world of handbags, there's plenty to learn about these beloved accessories.

And while certain facts are hard-and-fast (we defy you to find a flat stiletto!) other rules are a bit trickier — ie: don't be alarmed if your Mary Jane's a flat rather than a heel; this pretty lady can be both! So, grab a pencil: you're about to get schooled on shoe shapes with our handy glossary."

"Admit it: it’s been a long time. How long? Well, we won’t go there.

But you know what your wheel wants most: a day at the spa. It’s been working hard and seldom complains, but it will feel and perform a whole lot better after some TLC.
First up: a thorough cleaning. By nature, the spinning process generates lots of fibery dust, much of which accumulates in, on, and around your lovely wheel.

While dust may seem like a cosmetic issue, it can actually affect your wheel’s performance over the long term if it’s not cleaned out on a regular basis. Dust and debris can cause abrasion in moving parts and even accelerate surface wear on wood."

"It's hard to feel like you've mastered any technique if you aren't familiar with the terms associated with it. Soldering is no different--even as you get comfortable with moving your flame around while keeping an eye on the state of your flux and the color of your metal, pat-your-head-rub-your-tummy style, you still want to be able to fully understand what you're doing when you're soldering--and the tools you're using to do it. This handy glossary of some common soldering terms, excerpted from soldering articles by my metalsmithing teacher and soldering queen (and contributing editor to Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist), Lexi Erickson, will help you get your feet wet in the world of soldering and prepare you to learn more."
