Sound and Pet Peeve

What is my biggest pet peeve? My pet peeve is incredibly loud noise while i am trying to work on homework. I really dislike when there is any type of noise going on around me, or even in the same house. When there is noise, I will get an incredible head-ache and it distracts me from my work. Some examples of noise that really bug me are birds chirping, Dogs barking, and my family making noise period. The birds’ chirping…

Reflective Journal

Understanding the barriers that there may be between speaker and listener can shape better communication. Burley-Allen (1995) states awareness is a vital step; it is difficult to change something we are not aware of. The best way to shape better listening habits is to practice effective listening daily. We have to be aware of the barriers before we can become effective listeners and better responders. Listening is to give one’s attention to a sound; take notice of and act on…

White Noise

White noise is a natural sound that mimics a particular environment to sooth the nerves of adults or even distressed children. The white noise puts them to sleep mainly by drowning other sounds. White noise in the book can be viewed as the technology and the life of Americans, particularly as the noise which drowns what is really going on in the world. This can be seen where the students are carrying ungodly number of stuff including boxes of blankets,…

Sound Waves and Room Acoustics

We generally think of the speakers in our stereo or home theater systems as the final link in the audio chain — and the one that makes the biggest difference to our ears. But there’s much more to the sound we hear than just where you place your speakers in a stereo or home theater setup, and what comes out of them. You might not even realize it, but your room plays a rather large part in the sound that…

Sound

Sound is a mechanical wave an oscillation of pressure transmitted through a solid, liquid, or gas, composed of frequencies within the range of hearing and of a level sufficiently strong to be heard, or the sensation stimulated in organs of hearing by such vibrations. Sound is a sequence of waves of pressure which propagates through compressible media such as air or water. (Sound can propagate through solids as well, but there are additional modes of propagation). During their propagation, waves…

Mythbuster Reaction Paper

Never has it transpired in my cognizance how eloquent sound can be and the amazing things it can accomplish. Basically, sound isn’t all about hearing it with the ears and escalating its invisible effects. In the two topics we have witnessed, sound is much more appreciated. Can sound really break a glass? As what I’ve seen in the opera or in the movies, they say it can. I was at first doubtful of the fact that sound can be really…

The Tell–tale Heart

Although the narrator in “The Tell–Tale Heart” insists that he is not insane, I believe that he is insane. The madman hears unrealistic sounds. Moreover, he murders an old man with nonsensical reason. The narrator kills the old man because the old man’s eye frightens him. As the narrator says, “One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture — a pale blue eye with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me my blood ran cold, and so…

Ultrasound in Contemporary Physiotherapy Practice

Abstract Therapeutic Ultrasound is a well established and commonly used practice in the field of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitative sciences. Primarily ultrasound is used in the treatment and repair of soft tissue lesion management used as thermal modality. However in recent practice the non-thermal aspects of Ultrasound as intervention are being employed. Evidence indicates the dose dependant Ultrasound therapy effects the inflammatory, proliferative and remodelling phases of soft tissue injury to encourage the repair of damaged cells. Physics Summary Therapeutic Ultrasound…

Aeromedical Factors

One philosophy that some persons question, including a few of our own aviation medical examiners, relates to our greater flexibility in granting special issuances to private pilots as opposed to air carrier and other commercial pilots. The arguments against such flexibility rotate around the thought that, in the event of a medical incapacitation, an air carrier or commercial pilot usually has another pilot on board who can take control of the aircraft and safely land. In contrast, the private pilot…

The Human Perception of Loudness

Aim: The aim of the experiment was to discover the difference between loudness and sound pressure level, gain knowledge of typical sound level values in common environments and to be able to make rough estimations of what sound level measurements could be in different places. Method: The CEL-440 sound level meter was used to measure sound pressure levels in dbz and loudness levels in dBA. It was decided to base the experiment on learning environments around the university, ranging from…

Audio Processing

-sometimes referred to as audio processing, is the intentional alteration of auditory signals, or sound, often through an audio effect or effects unit. As audio signals may be electronically represented in either digital or analog format, signal processing may occur in either domain. Analog processors operate directly on the electrical signal, while digital processors operate mathematically on the digital representation of that signal. What is sound? * is a longitudinal displacement wave that propagates through air or some other medium….

The Lakota Way

The Lakota tribe introduced many values in this book. Humility (unsiiciyapi), perseverance (wowacintanka), respect (wawoohola), honor (wayuoniban), love (cantognake), sacrifice (incicupi), truth (wowicake), compassion (waunsilapi), bravery (woohitike), fortitude (cantewasake), generosity (camteyuke), and wisdom (woksape) were among the lessons learned throughout this book in the stories told.
