  Ruins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ruins is a term used to describe the remains of man-made architecture: structures that were at one time complete but which have either been deliberately destroyed or fallen into a state of disrepair over time due to the action of weathering and lack of maintenance.
Ruins can be fortifications, places of worship, or remnants of houses, storehouses, or other buildings, or even entire cities and towns.
Ruins can also derive from official decrees of government, such as the case of Beverston Castle, where the English parliament ordered significant destruction of the castle to prevent it being used by the opposition Royalists.

 Modern Ruins Photographic Essays - Shaun O'Boyle
Ruins are a window into human histories, they tell the tales of the past through the architecture and objects left behind.
Ruins capture the imagination with their ability to tell stories, the rich language of architecture opens a window to the past, a poetry of architectural spaces, structures and found objects capture past events and offers them to the keen observer.
One of the more powerful aspect of ruins is the subject that is missing in the photographs; the people who once worked and lived in these spaces, their presence can still be felt in the architecture and discarded objects.

 Ruins of Modernity: Conference
Indeed, ruins began to be perceived and preserved as ruins only during the Renaissance, when the awareness of historical discontinuities, the demise of ancient civilizations, raised the status of traces from the past.
Walter Benjamin drew a parallel between the ruin in the realm of things and the allegory in the realm of thoughts, for both ruin and allegory speak of a disruption in the relationship between form and meaning, to the point that semiotics becomes a wasteland.
This rich body of approaches to ruins illustrates vividly the extent to which the ruin is predicated on a particular gaze cast upon it.

 ruin - Definitions from Dictionary.com
ruins, the remains of a building, city, etc., that has been destroyed or that is in disrepair or a state of decay: We visited the ruins of ancient Greece.
Ruin, from the verb meaning to fall to pieces, suggests a state of decay or disintegration (or an object in that state) that is apt to be more the result of the natural processes of time and change than of sudden violent activity from without: The house has fallen to ruins.
When wreck is used in referring to the ruination of a person or his or her hopes or reputation, it implies irreparable shattering: “Coleridge, poet and philosopher wrecked in a mist of opium” (Matthew Arnold).

 The Mogollon Mimbres -  TJ Ruin
TJ Ruin is one of the largest and best preserved Mimbres sites still in existence, yet it is largely unrecognized (LeBlanc and Whalen 1980; Stuart and Gauthier 1981:175-258) if not unknown, and no formal survey or ground plan of the site has ever been prepared.
Certainly the TJ Ruin was not unknown to locals and seems to have been visited almost as often as the Gila Cliff Dwellings themselves (McFarland 1974; 1967:12) before road construction into the area channeled visitation to the cliff dwellings.
Without a program of excavation and interpretive development at the TJ Ruin, there cannot be meaningful archeological evaluation of the site and its full significance in the regional prehistory; professional and public interpretation will be hindered and incomplete.

 Digital Ruin CD Reviews
The new Digital Ruin doesn't oversimplify its new songs by falling into the same rut as all the other nu-metal bands (remember, I said Digital Ruin's style was "new-found" not "nu").
Digital Ruin's sophomore release, "Dwelling In The Out," is a blend of progressive metal with hard rock toughness that isn't afraid to admit it has a human soul, albeit a worried soul.
Digital Ruin's subject matter deals with the search for meaning, leaving the past behind, the dire effect of cold and impersonal relationships, the loss of the moral center of society, and a fear of the obscure and unknown future.

 AAW: Ruin Explorers Review
I was surprised by how much Ruin Explorers puts into its story; the characters (despite their rather silly quirks) are relatively straight, and their quest is nothing to laugh at.
There are also a few assorted flashes of artistic creativity that I rather liked; the prime example is a carnival flashback of a village festival involving rather horrific masks that operates both as not-so-subtle foreshadowing and a rather cool combination of incongruent images.
To sum up, Ruin Explorers is far from original, but starting out as a light fantasy romp and developing into a serious story, it isn't a bad tale either way.

 "Gambler's Ruin" Calculator for Video Poker   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Thus you could very possibly walk away a loser from a game that is actually in your favor.
In video poker, gambler's ruin is especially relevant because about 2% of your total payout (it varies from game to game) is due to the royal flush jackpot, which occurs on average once every 40,000 hands or so.
Thus, even if the machine has a fraction of a per cent bias in your favor when you play them optimally (and some do, see my strategy article), the game will still be in the casino's favor as long as you do not hit a royal flush.

As you passed along the streets, you saw shops of goods with the shopkeepers buried with them, some alive crying out from under the ruins, others half buried, others with broken limbs, in vain begging for help; they were passed by crowds without the least notice or sense of humanity.
The people lay that night in the field, which equaled, if possible, the horrors of the day; the city all in flames; and if you happened to forget yourself with sleep, you were awakened by the tremblings of the earth and the howlings of the people.
