Importance of music in my life Image Credit: Sandy H.
The author's comments:

Quotes I was inspired to write this article just so I could express how much music means to me and how empty my lif would be without it. Quotes

Music is one of the most important and powerful things in my life. My life without melodies and harmonies would be totally empty. Listening to and playing different tunes helps me to de-stress, relax and it can also help to motivate me in trying times. I love listening to music while on my way to school, as I feel it helps me to prepare for the day that waits. I think it is like the memoirs to my life as it has been there throughout everything with me.
When I was younger, I didn’t have the great love for musical as I do now. I mainly listened to whatever was playing in the background or what my parents were listening to. I didn’t have much of a care for musical compositions. There was sometimes a little bit of pop music thrown in to the mix here and there, but that’s really all I liked back then. Whether I was in the car, the house, or anywhere else there was sure to be some Beatles, Buddy Holly, or the Dubliners constantly playing somewhere in the background. At the time I didn’t care for that genre of music much, but now as I’m older, I enjoy it as it allows me to reminisce on memories from times of my childhood. Once I hit my teenage years music became my life and gradually started to inhibit my soul.
I believe music has the…...

Anatomy of an Epic

...N D Dr. W. Yarborough English 205 July 22, 2012 The Anatomy of an Epic When it comes to the art of storytelling, one has to think of the great storyteller known as Homer. There are other great story tellers and epics that stand out in history such as Vergil and his epic The Aeneid. Though there is no duplicate to the epic poems of Homer. Homer of Greece was a blind bard known for a sensational memory and his ability to entertain an audience with the portrayal of his words. Two well known epic poems he told were The Odyssey and The Iliad. Both of these poems are very different from any story or poem written in ancient Greece. The structure, development, and the art of how each epic was told is the reason why each work is different and why each is called an epic. Especially the Odyssey it is the pentacle of an epic poem and contains everything needed to be considered so. The Odyssey is the great story of Odysseus and the sequel to Homer’s other epic the Iliad. The main character Odysseus is put through a lengthy journey on his return home to Ithaca from the battlefield of Troy. Over the span of 24 detailed books Homer tells Odysseus’ path and what he must face to get home. From the raging seas created by Poseidon, Odysseus’ lengthy stay with calypso, and his travels through the underworld. These and other conflicts that Odysseus faces are part of the elements to which make the odyssey and epic poem. In the first book of the Odyssey, Homer introduces a very......

...smile. I've watched you sleeping for a while. I'd be the father of your child. I'd spend a lifetime with you. I know your fears and you know mine. We've had our doubts but now we're fine, And I love you, I swear that's true. I cannot live without you. Goodbye my lover. Goodbye my friend. You have been the one. You have been the one for me. And I still hold your hand in mine. In mine when I'm asleep. And I will bare my soul in time, when I'm kneeling at your feet. Goodbye my lover. Goodbye my friend. You have been the one. You have been the one for me. I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow. I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow. I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow. I'm so, I'm so, I’m so hollow STORY BEYOND THE SONG I read the song as the goodbye of a man to his girlfriend and to his best friend since he’s not alive anymore. My dialogue intends to be the conversation between the two guys that have just lost one of the most important people in their life. In a completely different context from the pact, Julie as Rameck will need to move on without her beloved....

Song

...The song Temporary Home was featured on Carrie Underwood’s hit album Play On that was released in October of 2009. This song had no impact on me at all until March of 2010. One of my dearest friends, Breanna Nicole Barber, was in a motorcycle dirt bike accident. She fell off of the bike hitting her head causing major brain damage. She was a vegetable and was taken off of life support. Her funeral was several days later and it was really the most unbelievable thing that has ever happened to me. They played Temporary Home at her funeral. I knew what a temporary home meant to me. It meant that one day I’d be at my final destination and that would be heaven. In these next few paragraphs I will reinforce the word ‘temporary’. I’ll describe to you my idea of why Carrie Underwood addresses 3 different stages of life. The word ‘temporary’ is specifically reinforced numerous times throughout the song. Carrie uses phrases like, “house that will never be a home”, “nowhere to go”, “passing through”, and “just a stop”. We have a clear understanding of most of these things and that they intend on being for a short period of time. [What about these words/phrases?] Carrie introduces three different stages of life throughout the song. First she mentions a little boy who is in foster care that keeps getting moved and placed in homes that feel unwelcoming to him. Then she mentions a single mom that needs help, has a baby, and practically has nothing. Lastly she mentions an......

Song of Songs

...Song of Songs Rabbi Aqiba once said that “For in all the world there is nothing to equal the day on which the Song of Songs was given to Israel, for all the writings are Holy, but the Song of Songs is the Holy of Holies.” (Davidson) This statement is made in regards to whether or not the book “Song of Songs” is to be included in the canon on the Bible. This book is a collection of songs and love poetry between two lovers. This book can be considered as an allegory of human sexuality, or divine love. However, there is no direct mention of the Divine Presence anywhere within the book. Even the Jewish Rabbis with the most understanding of biblical concepts regarding sexuality have trouble agreeing that a book of seemingly secular love poetry should be included in the sacred canon.(Davidson) When Aqiba said the Song of Songs was the Holy of Holies, he probably intended that to mean that the Song was detailed symbolism of the historical relationship between Yahweh (the Divine Presence) and the people of Israel from the Exodus to the coming of the Messiah.(Davidson) During the time, sexual feelings were considered pagan and evil. Some Christian allegorists believe that the author (or authors) of the songs wrote in a way that disguised sexual expressing as a yearning for God. Most scholars believe that the authors purposely wrote about yearning for God in an incredibly sexual way to further imply the strong emotions behind said yearning. These songs are regardless a type of......

...Environmental Health Perspectives Vol. 44, pp. 1-8, 1982 The Eye and Visual Nervous System: Anatomy, Physiology and Toxicology by Connie S. McCaa* The eyes are at risk to environmental injury by direct exposure to airborne pollutants, to splash injury from chemicals and to exposure via the circulatory system to numerous drugs and bloodborne toxins. In addition, drugs or toxins can destroy vision by damaging the visual nervous system. This review describes the anatomy and physiology of the eye and visual nervous system and includes a discussion of some of the more common toxins affecting vision in man. Anatomy of the Eyeball The eye consists of a retinal-lined fibrovascular sphere which contains the aqueous humor, the lens and the vitreous body as illustrated in Figure 1. The retina is the essential component of the eye and serves the primary purpose of photoreception. All other structures of the eye are subsidiary and act to focus images on the retina, to regulate the amount of light entering the eye or to provide nutrition, protection or motion. The retina may be considered as an outlying island of the central nervous system, to which it is connected by a tract of nerve fibers, the optic nerve. As in the case of the brain and the spinal cord, the retina is within two coats of tissue which contribute protection and nourishment. On the outside of the sphere, corresponding to the dura mater, a layer composed of dense fibrous tissue serves as a protective envelope, the......

Anatomy

...Anatomy is the branch of biology concerned with the study of the structure of animals and their parts; it is also referred to as zootomy to separate it from human anatomy. In some of its facets, anatomy is related to embryology and comparative anatomy, which itself is closely related to evolutionary biology and phylogeny.[1] Human anatomy is one of the basic essential sciences of medicine. The discipline of anatomy is divided into macroscopic and microscopic anatomy. Macroscopic anatomy, or gross anatomy, is the examination of an animal’s body parts using unaided eyesight. Gross anatomy also includes the branch of superficial anatomy. Microscopic anatomy involves the use of optical instruments in the study of the tissues of various structures, known as histology and also in the study of cells. The history of anatomy is characterized by a progressive understanding of the functions of the organs and structures of the human body. Methods have also improved dramatically, advancing from the examination of animals by dissection of carcases and cadavers (corpses) to 20th century medical imaging techniques including X-ray, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging.

...The song I choose to do was “ Runaway Love” by Ludacris ft. Mary J. Blige. The song focuses on three different scenarios dealing with young girls from the ages of 9-11. For the first scenario it focuses on a nine year old whose mother had many different men in her life. Throughout the men who go in and out of her mother life they are sexually abusing her. She tells her mother what is happening, but her mother does not believe her. The second scenario is about an eleven year old who is being beat by her alcoholic father and only had one friend who understands her. Walking home from school one day the friend is shot by a drive by bullet. Now she is left alone because that’s was the only person she had. On the last scenario an eleven year old is doing drugs and being sexually active with males that are older. She knows if her mom finds out she will go crazy. The sum of the three stories are these young girls are going through situation where they wish they could runaway and just forget everything that has happened. The race that the song is mainly directed towards all nationalities because these things can happen to anyone. Accent- slang speaking in a way that a more African American audience would understand Gender- targeted to mainly females Class- lower class which is the poor because all the situation the parents were struggling financially or had some type of situation...

...Limp Bizkit's jam! Limp Bizkit played their best hits as well as the songs from the early career. Rap-metal charge of Limp Bizkit reacted with the energy of the crowd, and detonated with the two-hour blast. The sound of band’s live performance was worth of praise. It was as close as possible to the studio recordings. The volume was arranged perfectly, therefore, it was easy to hear every beat from any corner of the auditorium. There was no headache and temporary deafness as sometimes happens after the performance of rock bands. Each member of the band was worth of compliments and endless praise. There was no doubt about the mastery of Limp Bizkit. This band has gone through thousands of shows during 20 years of their career and they know exactly how to interact with the audience. The energy was oozing through the artists allowing fans to get rid of all negativity and enjoy the good vibes the band was sending. The guitarist, Wes Borland, expressed himself through the air tearing guitar riffs and expressive gestures, giving the audience an example of how to behave on the Limp Bizkit's shows. Sam Rivers tormented his LED bass. After the concert, the fans referred to John Otto as “the god of thunder” because of his flawless drum performance. Fred Durst showed himself as first-class front man who is able to stir up the crowd with one word or one shout. A roll call with the audience during the song “Livin 'It Up” (It'll eat a hole - what?

Anatomy

...As far as we know, anatomy is the oldest medical science. Cave paintings of the early Stone Age, about 30,000 years ago,* show a simple knowledge of the anatomy of animals, and it is assumed that these cave dwellers applied some of their anatomical knowledge to their own bodies. The civilizations of the Babylonians, as Syrians, Egyptians, Chinese, and Hindus made no serious attempt to learn anatomy because they were interested in the supernatural world, not the natural one, and their cultures placed strong religious restrictions against debasing the body. Any anatomical dissections that were performed on animals were made to "study" organs in an effort to predict the future and to tell fortunes. *The Stone Age, the earliest known period of human culture, is characterized by the use of small stone tools. Anatomy in Ancient Greece The systematic study of anatomy may have begun in the fifth century B.C ., with the work of two Greek scientists, Alcmaeon (ca. 500 B.C.) in Italy andEmpedocles (ca. 490-430 B.C) in Sicily, where Greek culture and science flourished. Alcmaeon was probably the first person to dissect the human body for research purposes, and he is also given credit for proposing that the brain is the center of intelligence. Empedocles, who believed that the heart distributed life-giving heat to the body, initiated the idea that an ethereal substance called pneuma, which was both life and soul, flowed through the blood vessels. Although such early anatomists were......

...Lisa Wright Anatomy and Physiology I 09/08/2011 Journal Questions 1-6 Journal # 1 Why does our skin age when even at 90, the outer layer is only 3 weeks old? Over time, the skin looses its flexiblity/collagen. The collagen becomes less elastic and thinner. This is where the problems with getting more moisture to the upper layer, the epidermis, begins. When you are young like in your 20s, you have more fatty vessels in your skin, as you age the fat dissapears. Journal # 2 What is the function of the multiple nuclei in striated muscle cells? Some nuclei that is present in the Muscles are Mytoblast. They form individual muscle fibers. The mytoblast that do not fuse with muscle fibers remain in the adult muscles and become sattelite cells. After an injury, these suspected sattellit celss can get bigger and divide. They can fuse with damaged fibers from the muscle and then assist in the regeneration of the muscles tissues. Journal # 3 How is the concept of Homeostasis (or its loss) related to disease & aging? Homeostasis maintains the internal conditions of your body. For Example: when your body uses a ton of energy and gets hot, you body sweats in response to that. When you age, alot of energy is not used as often as you used it when you were young. This is how diseases such as arthritis can occur much easier. You immune system can slow down as well. When you age, your body gets out of balance and out of homeostasis. Then you become more......
