Royal family of Jordan. The tragedy of King Talal. Part 1

About the stars

Today’s post will be dedicated to the Jordanian King Talal and his family. As I wrote earlier, I decided not to go into all the relatives and their families so as not to depart from the main line. Among them, of course, there are interesting specimens, but I do not want to focus on them, and if they are mentioned, then casually as necessary. There is a lot of information, fortunately there are interesting links where the information is not sleek but quite adequate and lively. I will post the post in two parts as it is again circumcised. Photos I place from different time pieces.

Royal family of Jordan. The tragedy of King Talal. Part 1

So Talal was the eldest son of the first Jordanian king from the Hashemite dynasty. The eldest son of his eldest and chief wife, queen consort Moussa bint Nasser. One of the most tragic, in my opinion, monarchs in world history.

Royal family of Jordan. The tragedy of King Talal. Part 1

Talal was born on February 26, 1909 in Mecca. The first time he studied privately in Amman, then continued his studies at the British military academy Sandhurst. In 1929, after graduating from the academy, he was accepted to serve the cavalry regiment of the Arab Legion. He was the first Jordanian officer to graduate from the Sandhurst Academy.

Talal became king after his father was killed by a Palestinian terrorist in Jerusalem. It was he who committed one of the most important deeds during his short reign, introduced the constitution and since 1952 Jordan has become a constitutional monarchy. Moreover, it was he who introduced joint training for boys and girls. Schools for girls existed before, but co-education was precisely its innovation. I read some forums, and ran into various posts from users in which they told me that Talalah was in principle loved and considered him to be an intelligent, intelligent and well-educated person. Father Abdullah’s son 1 and his son had occasional quarrels as Abdullah considered Talal too melancholic, weak, and at the same time too pro-Western and progressive.

Royal family of Jordan. The tragedy of King Talal. Part 1

Reading their forums, came across information that the father generally preferred the younger son Naif, more compliant and obedient. Moreover, the son of Talal, Hussein’s grandfather took to himself as he did not want the overly western influence of his son and daughter-in-law on his grandson. They also write that Talal and Zane lost two children, the daughter died at 6 months because of a cold and the second child died because the father-in-law did not allow Zane to give birth in the hospital, there were serious problems during childbirth, and at home they were solved failed. They say that it was the difficult relationship with the father and the experience of stress that led Talal to schizophrenia. But we read about the relationship with the father below.

Some sources say that Talal’s childhood was badly affected by the fact that his stepmother, his wife’s second wife, and the mother of his second brother Naif lived with him. He became closer to his mother so much that she actually became his only friend and he tried to stay with her constantly. When his brother Nayf was born, much attention was paid to him and Talal was jealous. Naif was more sociable, cheerful and had many friends. Talal was more melancholy and prone to depression. King Abdullah was displeased with his son, he was annoyed that Talal did not like hunting and men’s entertainment but was constantly surrounded by women, reading books and communicating only with his mother. Every day the gap between father and son became more and more. They had nothing to talk about, nothing to discuss, and they had almost nothing in common. Abdullah could not find a common language with his son and was angry, and Talal did not understand how to please his father. As a result, Talal was sent to England to study but was not allowed to do what he wanted. Talal, strangely interested in agriculture, however, his father insisted on the military academy and said that it was not necessary for the princes to dig in the gardens (I’m already ironic about this).

After Talal’s return to Amman, Abdullah actually began to forget that he had an older son. Talal was forbidden to leave the palace and perform any public or state functions. Talal went to his grandfather in Cyprus, his grandfather happily loved, cherished and cherished. He lived in Cyprus after losing power in Egypt and all would be nothing, but three months after Talal’s arrival, the grandfather died. This even more seriously affected Talal’s psyche. He returned to Amman and asked his father to let him live not as a prince, but as an ordinary citizen, alone, away from the palace. Father was delighted and hoped that it would be beneficial to his son. Talal lived alone and was calm, but at heart he was worried that his father did not even remember.

Royal family of Jordan. The tragedy of King Talal. Part 1

Reading their forums, came across information that the father generally preferred the younger son Naif, more compliant and obedient. Moreover, the son of Talal, Hussein’s grandfather took to himself as he did not want the overly western influence of his son and daughter-in-law on his grandson. They also write that Talal and Zane lost two children, the daughter died at 6 months because of a cold and the second child died because the father-in-law did not allow Zane to give birth in the hospital, there were serious problems during childbirth, and at home they were solved failed. They say that it was the difficult relationship with the father and the experience of stress that led Talal to schizophrenia. But we read about the relationship with the father below.

Some sources say that Talal’s childhood was badly affected by the fact that his stepmother, his wife’s second wife, and the mother of his second brother Naif lived with him. He became closer to his mother so much that she actually became his only friend and he tried to stay with her constantly. When his brother Nayf was born, much attention was paid to him and Talal was jealous. Naif was more sociable, cheerful and had many friends. Talal was more melancholy and prone to depression. King Abdullah was displeased with his son, he was annoyed that Talal did not like hunting and men’s entertainment but was constantly surrounded by women, reading books and communicating only with his mother. Every day the gap between father and son became more and more. They had nothing to talk about, nothing to discuss, and they had almost nothing in common. Abdullah could not find a common language with his son and was angry, and Talal did not understand how to please his father. As a result, Talal was sent to England to study but was not allowed to do what he wanted. Talal, strangely interested in agriculture, however, his father insisted on the military academy and said that it was not necessary for the princes to dig in the gardens (I’m already ironic about this).

After Talal’s return to Amman, Abdullah actually began to forget that he had an older son. Talal was forbidden to leave the palace and perform any public or state functions.

Father was delighted and hoped that it would be beneficial to his son. Talal lived alone and was calm, but at heart he was worried that his father did not even remember.

With Father

Royal family of Jordan. The tragedy of King Talal. Part 1

One day my father decided to marry his son. He insisted on the return of his son to the palace and began to look for that bride, he really wanted grandchildren. At some point, Abdullah began to understand that he had missed a lot in the education of his son and therefore wanted in a good way "recoup one’s grandson". The first bride of Talal was a representative of the Hashemite dynasty. She was educated and was the daughter of Sharif Al Haidar, and her mother was an Englishwoman and insisted that her daughter not live in a palace and was Talal’s only wife. Talal was a sentimental man, he remembered how badly his mother suffered because of his father’s second wife and agreed to all the conditions showing respect for the wishes of his future wife. However, the father did not consent to the marriage, terminated the engagement and said that no one dares to give valuable instructions to the Jordanian royal family. As a result, he forced Talal to marry his relative Zain and they were married in 1934. Talal himself wrote in his memoirs that he was confident that the marriage with Zain was a huge mistake and an epic feil. We will write about Zane, good and there are a lot of photos and the information is enough. Until a couple of pictures just put.

Talal in Geneva, October 1952

Royal family of Jordan. The tragedy of King Talal. Part 1

The king wanted to remove Talal from the line of inheritance and make the second son his heir. As we have already said, the complaisant, less educated and less progressive Naif. But the British intervened and did not allow this to happen. As often happens in any kipishah, there must necessarily be either American or British forces)) By the way Talal’s sons inherited his progressiveness, mainly it affected his son Hassan, who in a Muslim country, far from democracy, managed to create a society to protect women from domestic violence . This fund, as far as I know, is led now by Queen Rania.

Very often, these posts mention the book of King Hussein, in which he tells a lot about himself and his family. The book is called "Uneasy Lies the Head" and I hope I find it. There he talks about his father, that his grandfather was not happy with his eldest son, so he preferred first to the second son, and then to his grandson, the future King Hussein. It was the grandfather who led Hussein’s education. There was an episode when the teacher of Arabic was fired because Hussein could not retell the grandfather-king to several Arabic proverbs. In general, Talal somehow, unfortunately, passed by all of them. Even Jordanian sources claim that Hussein was closer to his mother and grandfather, but spoke little of his father and with reluctance.

Book. By the way the title of the book is a line by Shakespeare Uneasy Lies the Head that wears crown. It’s from "Henry 4" – But there is no rest in the head in the wreath (Pasternak’s translation)

There is reliable evidence that Talal twice tried to kill his wife in seizures. Moreover, he once started beating his 10 year old son Muhammad thinking that the child knows in detail about the attempts of the enemies to kill Talal himself. Naturally, this manifestation of his illness began to appear in a more mature age, I will write about this further. At the time of his father’s death and accordingly becoming King Talal was in a psychiatric clinic in Geneva. A large amount of information on Talal is classified until 2027, but something is already being laid out. Based on the fact that something is laid out, it is possible to make the post more meaningful.

In the next post, I will continue the story of the difficult life of Talal and how he gradually lost his mind. I think you will be interested. Especially not just the history of life but a whole archive of relationships between fathers and children.

Which fonts are better for using complex data?

The translation of Jonathan Hofler’s printer’s material about how to make presentations, annotations, reports and other official documents is understandable and enjoyable for reading.

Commodity calculations, packaging, financial reports and applications present a huge amount of data to readers. Below are several ways to quickly deal with long lists, tiny notes and a lot of columns with numbers.

Which fonts are better for using complex data?

Font designers work with very different client base, however, in our conversations there are always common themes. It seems that a trend has emerged in the world for complex typography, and designers everywhere face difficulties, especially if their task is to present the reader with diverse but equally competing data for his attention.

We are working with an agency that is developing an image for a fast-growing consumer goods brand. And with a full-time art department creating a website with a responsive design for presenting complex financial statements on it. And with a graphic designer-freelancer working on an image for a local coffee house and discovering the pros and cons of the digital menu.

And incorrectly selected font can drive any designer into a dead end, and the right one, on the contrary, can greatly help. Below we will describe some of the things that our clients have to consider when they face complex typography and some typographic strategies that will lead to success sooner.

Strategies for small fonts

Often information can be presented in the form of data and notes. The web form should be presented so that the input field is different from the signature for the input field, the chart should not only have labels for the X and Y axes, but, more importantly, a verifiable reference to the data source.

The simplest and most obvious way to establish such a hierarchy is through the font size, using a significantly smaller font to separate the text content from the notes.

But if the font size is made smaller than the main text, then even the most legible font will be difficult to read, the distance between the letters will be too small, the inner letter clearance is too narrow, and the height of the lowercase letters is negligible. Compare the small fonts in these two examples.

Which fonts are better for using complex data?

Fortunately, the fonts were specially adapted for web pages and show themselves well on any device. Font Family ScreenSmart It was created in order to fill the shortcomings of a small size.

Above are two types of layout where the Whitney font family is used, and on the right for a small print under the graph is Whitney ScreenSmart. Fonts ScreenSmart always give greater clarity, they are more comfortable to read, which means they are perfect for small spelling.

Working with lists

Small font – the curse of typography, and it’s not only in its size, but also in a large amount of information. Clarifications, declarations of liability and lists of ingredients are most often ignored by readers, but they can be attributed to the most strictly regulated parts of any typographic object, and therefore this content is carefully looked through.

Raise your hands to those who have ever received a request from the legal department to make a few more suggestions in the text after the design has already been approved. Raise up your hands if it was not a request.

Which fonts are better for using complex data?

The first thing that a non-designer comes up with is to take a font that is narrowed by the principle: the narrower the letters, the less space they will occupy. However, it is almost always better to go against intuition and choose a wider type of font, and then set a smaller size for it with a closer arrangement of letters to each other.

Wider letters have more comfortable proportions, they are located with a large interval from each other and with sufficient letter-space gaps, and all this makes them an easy-to-read option.

Above are two lists of ingredients in the font Gotham: left admissible Gotham Condensed, and on the right is much more attractive Gotham Narrow. Tip: For maximum legibility of the font, you should use a wide font not only in the main text, but also in an additional font ScreenSmart.

Working with a set of characters

Imperceptible notes – this is a chance for the designer to show his creativity, as well as an occasion to try the brighter characters from the set of signs. The indexes of footnotes, beginning with an asterisk and a cross, sometimes become a pleasant addition to the dry content of the footnote itself. But if the document has more than three footnotes, it is better not to use them.

With symbols such as *, † and ‡, users are still sorted out, but with their repetition like **, †† and ‡‡ – or §, || and # depending on what you are used to in your company, it will be harder. If there are more than three footnotes in the text, it is better to follow all the clear numbered list in the upper index.

Chronicle Text Grade 2 Pro

Superindexes are included in each font H&Co, which has a version of Pro, as well as they are in Gotham, Ringside and Inkwell. Tip: In the text, note footnotes with the help of superindexes, which rise above the capital letters. But in the footnotes themselves it is better to use the numerator, because it is located below. So the link between the numbering and the text of the footnote is better visible, and the footnotes are more clearly visually separated from each other.

Figures, numbers, figures

In the same Pro sets except for superindexes and numerators, there are tabular or monospaced digits, this is the most important digital part of any font. Unlike the traditionally proportional characters of any font, whose width varies depending on the natural form of each number – 1 – always narrow, and 0 – rather wide – the table numbers have the same width, so the width of the columns in which they are located always coincides.

Table numbers have a second important characteristic: their width does not change depending on the font’s saturation. In the ordinary font, everything is arranged differently: there the more saturation, the wider the symbols.

This is one of the main characteristics of tabular figures, known as "duplexing", because it allows designers to select individual lines in bold, without violating the width of the column.

Tip: the very word “tabular” can mean complex tables in applications to annual reports and disclosure of financial information, but do not forget that often a huge number of figures appears in other contexts.

Tabular numbers are important, for example, for menus, catalogs, directories, and generally for everything where prices, statistics, account numbers, points or any other data dynamically changed online.

Any digital experience with variable figures, for example, stock prices, sports scores, commodity code of the goods, exchange rate, flight numbers, schedules, requires the use of tabular figures. So it’s better to work with tabular figures from the very beginning of the project.

Creative choice

Advanced digital symbols, like table numbers and superindexes, are not the prerogative of commonly used font families, and in general not every project requires rational serif or sans.

When the complexity of the project requires a reliable font, and the theme of the project implies an individual approach, it is better to look for non-obvious fonts that have additional digital capabilities.

For example, handwriting Inkwell has everything you need to convey the subtleties of content, while it looks less strict, which means it is more suitable for areas such as entertainment, retail, catering, arts, pediatric care, and even philanthropy.

Tip: if you plan to use symbols of the same saturation in tables, you should pay attention to such fonts whose numbers have the same width, and where they are not duplicated by saturation (usual – bold).

In our collection Numbers there are fonts Indicia, Claimcheck, Revenue and Greenback, in which the numbers are the same width, the same with interesting figures in any saturation in the font Inkwell Blackletter.

Individual advertising and information materials of the brand

The last contribution to visual communication is usually done not by designers, but by software. Often these are text editors, spreadsheets and programs for creating presentations that should be spoken by the organization, but they lack the tools to do it properly. For such projects, we created Office Fonts.

Office fonts are an adaptation of frequently used fonts from H&Co, specially created for use in business solutions such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. These are the same font families whose ScreenSmart The version is well used for small text and whose professional character sets are suitable even for the most complex data.

We rethought a set of Office fonts for use by non-designers, and limited each of the included family of fonts with just four shapes (direct, oblique, fat and bold oblique). In addition, this set contains only tabular figures to avoid typographical failures that might go unnoticed.

And yet these fonts are uploaded to the format TrueType For maximum compatibility, even with the oldest operating systems.

Tip: if the brand communications ultimately will occur through reports, proposals, regulations and presentations, it is better to develop these documents from the very beginning with Office fonts in order to take advantage of their unique characteristics.

“I do not like trends”: 9 questions to Karim Rashid

"I do not like trends": 9 questions to Karim Rashid

Designer Karim Rashid (born 1960) designed thousands of objects and received hundreds of international awards. His name became a household name when talking about popularity, marketing response and the widest specialization (or lack thereof) in design.

Can you call yourself a perfectionist? Absolutely for sure! I work with modern culture as a sculptor. I am a designer, an artist, a nonconformist, a perfectionist – so I am adjusted to life. And I’m impatient, hardworking, optimistic, loving, generous, kind and scrupulous.

When you start work, do you immediately imagine the result? It often happens that I have much more ideas than customers can implement. I do not like half-measures; since I came to this world, my task is to give my best, to contribute as much as possible. If I have started the project, it must have some kind of zest. It is very important for me that, as a result of the creative process, things appear that will bring about a sensual response that people will enjoy with pleasure. I myself use my products, so I know what I’m talking about.

"I do not like trends": 9 questions to Karim Rashid

Karim Rashid: “I constantly observe, analyze. I’m thoroughly researching everything around, in our artificially created environment. “

Do you need any special conditions, atmosphere? The most difficult is complete freedom of creativity. The more requirements, wishes from the client, the easier: they stimulate new ideas. A striking example of this is Rich’s premium brand and its RichCrystal line, which was supposed to be a stylish solution for bars and restaurants. There are many packages of juice for every taste and color, it is very difficult to come up with something really new. However, after studying and working out the options, we managed to create a minimalistic image with the Rich team, a kind of degeneration of the classical form. The bottle does not have sharp corners, so it is easy to take, it is pleasant to the touch. Now it’s not just an unnamed juice in a faceless glass, but an exquisite premium drink.

What are the main trends in interior design? I do not like trends and I do not really like the word “style”. The digital transformation of our world has led to the fact that because of the overabundance of visual information, we have lost the depth of perception. We do not see the whole landscape, but as if we are looking at it from a small window. In the pursuit of trends, many designers imitate the style. For example, industrial chic is already everywhere, it does not have its former originality. We can say that now we live in two worlds. One of them is artificial, kitsch optical illusions, and the other is a real digital world. Design should be part of modern culture, rather than fixate on style and trends.

"I do not like trends": 9 questions to Karim RashidKarim Rashid: “I respect genuine antiques, I am inspired and admired by him, but what I do not like is the imitations of the past, copies and fakes with which the world is filled.”

You said that you do not like “classics”. That is, in your opinion, what will never go out of fashion does not exist? I have nothing against antiquity. I just do not believe in reproductions. We constantly produce new items in an attempt to get closer to the past – a past in which we have never lived. If you were going to buy a car today, would you choose a horse with a cart? And if you needed a gadget to listen to music, would you buy a radio set?

From what is it definitely time to get rid of? Get rid of tasteless souvenirs. Less is better! Once again, check yourself that you really want what you are going to buy. I myself am not an anti-consumer, but I think it’s important to consume wisely. Buy only what you really need.

Can you name three things that will instantly transform the interior? Strive for order. Arrange everything in an even line: all objects, vases, books, columns. Order inspires. Order is Zen, it relaxes. Forget about the curtains: from them no use – one dust and dirt, because of them the room looks cumbersome. Buy instead of them Roman curtains. Hide all kitchen utensils. The kitchen should be minimalistic and beautiful. Only the most necessary and interesting things should remain on the surface. All the rest must be removed.

Do not clutter up space. If you have hidden something, you will not use it any more. Get rid of this.

"I do not like trends": 9 questions to Karim RashidKarim Rashid: “I am a designer, an artist, a nonconformist, a perfectionist – so I am adjusted to life. And I’m impatient, hardworking, optimistic, loving, generous, kind and scrupulous. “

Do you have idols or people who inspire you? Please, here is the whole list: Luigi Colani, Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Philippe Starck, George Nelson, Charles Eames, Isamu Noguchi, Ross Lovegrove, Bruno Munari, Carlo Molly, Gaetano Pesce, Victor Papanek, David Carson, Frederic Kisler, Shiro Kuramata , Buckminster Fuller, Zaha Hadid, Oscar Niemeyer, Toyo Ito. Of contemporary artists – Dalek, Dutchman, Jeff Koons, Peter Haley, Andy Warhol, Herold Miller, and that’s not all …

What advice would you give to designers? Design is working with modern conditions to shape the future in which a person will exist. The point is to create something qualitative, improved, moving us forward. Young, I always give such advice: “Be smart, patient, learn to learn, learn to be practical, but do not forget about poetics. Look for new ways of expression, new meanings, new aesthetics, experiment with new materials, create new paradigms. But always remember the obvious human needs that the product must meet: emotions, ease of use, technological advantage, humor, positive energy, dignity. “

Triennial of architecture in the UAE

Triennial of architecture in the UAE

Curator Sharjah Architecture Triennial Adrian Lahoud.

Sharjah Architecture Triennial will begin in November 2019 in Sharjah, UAE and will be the first such event for the Arab world. The curator of the festival is the dean of the Royal College of Art Architecture, Adrian Lahoud. “The rights of future generations” – so the theme sounds, it is about the rights that are passed from one generation to another, and the role of architecture in this context, with an emphasis on the Arab world.

According to Lahoud, the expansion of human rights, which is observed everywhere, has not coped with inequality and long-standing problems in the field of the environment. Attention is given to individual rights: health, education and housing, which overshadowed environmental rights and collective responsibility. “The rights of future generations” is a proposal to radically rethink the fundamental questions of architecture and its ability to offer alternative ways of existence. “

Herzog & de Meuron: art center in Hong Kong prison

Herzog & de Meuron: art center in Hong Kong prison

Police station and prison – for the majority this is the address they want to see last in the list of cultural attractions. However, the other day the former police headquarters in Hong Kong was presented as a new art center Tai Kwun, which means “Big Station”. Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, created the project together with Purcell architects.

Herzog & de Meuron: art center in Hong Kong prisonThe peculiarity of the place – it is located two steps from the main financial quarter of the city.

The complex consists of 16 historical buildings (1864-1925) and open spaces on a plot of 13,600 square kilometers. meters. Here there are three buildings recognized as monuments – the former central police station, the magistracy and the prison of Victoria, witnesses to the 170-year history of Hong Kong.

Herzog & de Meuron: art center in Hong Kong prisonThe reconstruction of Tai Kwun was conceived as the creation of a platform for stimulating arts and a platform for Hong Kong artists.

Two new buildings designed by Herzog & de Meuron are added to the existing ones. This is the JC Contemporary Gallery and JC Cube Theater – a two-hundred-seat audience for performing arts, film screenings and events.
