Sounds of English

...Sounds of English: Introduction English Within English there are roughly 50 unique sounds(phonetics).  These 50 sounds are represented by 26 letters, alone or in combination with one another (orthography).  The sound system of English consists of about 2/3 consonants, which are either voiced or voiceless depending on which sounds surround them, and 1/3 vowels, which may be long or short depending on where they fall within a word (phonology). Of these sounds, vowels are fairly well understood and will not be addressed too heavily in this series.  Vowels are also more difficult to discuss definitively because many of them vary by dialect.  Consonants shall be the focus of these discussions on English, and to understand consonants, it is necessary to be familiar with the organs of the vocal tract used to produce them.   Consonants The 30+ consonants in English, consist of the following types: * Plosives/Stops* * Fricatives * Affricates *Stops are technically the first two parts of a plosive, with the third part being a sudden expelling of air as a release.  Without this ‘explosion‘ of air, a plosive is merely a stop. * Nasals * Liquids * Glides The first three involve some type of halting or obstructing the flow of air. They always occur as voiced and voiceless pairs, with two sounds being produced in mechanically identical ways, but with the only difference between them being the vibration (or lack of vibration) of the vocal cords. The final three types of......

Morally Sound

...Morally Sound In the article “Some moral Minima,” Lenn Goodman argues that moral actions, which in which come with alternative motives, are the only meaningful actions. Looking for attention and praise from after doing something that is morally right in itself takes away from the act from the beginning. To disagree with the opinion of Goodman would raise an argument of human nature and reasoning. Goodman argues that certain things are without a doubt wrong. In my personal opinion, Goodman is absolutely correct. Things like slavery, polygamy, and incest are just a few of the long list of things that Goodman argues are in fact wrong. Goodman starts her argument by saying a phrase that kept playing in my mind over and over again as I read her arguments for moral and relativism. She said, “certain things are simply wrong” (insert citation). Arguing with the Goodman in her efforts to explain how some things are certainly wrong would be nearly impossible. Killing just to kill, or raping an individual for instantaneous desire, or taking the rights of an individual for prosperity is just plain wrong. By debating that everyone person whether it be man, woman, or child wants the desire to live and be free without the free of not being understood or to be judged based on things that are not morally correct. I believe that all individuals are equal and should have the right to be treated and create their own lifetime of joy. People who violate the moral compass,...

Sound Education

..."Effective study skills are the sole foundation of a sound education" Effective study skills are definitely an important factor of a sound education. They don't happen overnight. They "evolve and mature through practice, trial and error, feedback from others and reflection through different stages of the course" (Cottrell,S.2008. pg1) Working on effective study skills means the individual will find out what works best. Basically "learning how to learn" (Cottrell,S. 2008. pg 48). There are many different ways in which individuals learn, for e.g. 'conscious learning' - when the individual is aware they are learning (Cottrell,S. 2008. pg 48). 'Unconscious learning' - when the individual is unaware that it is happening but it may become conscious learning when they just know something and then wonder, how did I know that (Cottrell,S. 2008. pg 48). Each person has 3 different learning styles which affect their lives. Some people learn better using visual learning such as looking at pictures or diagrams. Other people are auditory learners i.e. listening to recordings. Then there are people who are kinaesthetic or tactile learners, they like to touch and play with things. (Wyman,P. 2011). By testing all these types of learning people will see what they find easiest to use and then be able to adapt it to their......

...still suffers in comparison to arch- rival GE, whose shares have had a total return of 423% over the past 10 years, versus 273% for the German company. Von Pierer himself has admitted that he wasn’t always able to push change as fast as he would have liked. It’s not just a question of cutting costs. “In the innovation game, productivity and R&D matter more than cost structure,” says William M. Castell, CEO of GE Healthcare. Siemens boasts that its engineers and scientists generate more than 8,000 inventions a year, but it needs to do more to turn those innovations into commercial products. Siemens was a leader in introducing mobile-phone handsets with color screens and built-in MP3 music players, for example, but wasn’t able to translate its tech edge into market strength. Can Kleinfeld succeed? He doubtless has the drive. Kleinfeld’s father, a shipyard laborer who became an engineer by studying nights, died when the boy was 10. That was a “brutal” experience, Kleinfeld says, but the hardship that followed forged a determination to succeed. An only child, he stocked grocery shelves at age 12 and has held a job ever since. After studying business at Georg August University in Göttingen, Kleinfeld put in stints at a Nuremberg market research firm and at drugmaker Ciba-Geigy before joining Siemens’s corporate sales and marketing department in 1987. The new Siemens chief was a multitasker before anyone used the term. Many of his generation milk Germany’s free university system for......

Film Sound

...Semester Term Paper: Film Sound Katayoun Nawabi University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill On my honor, I have neither given nor received aid in completing this assignment. ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____________________________ Katayoun Nawabi In analyzing film, critics constantly gloss over the importance of the use of sound. Those critics that do touch on the function of sound often underestimate its role in the overall impact of the film as a whole. There are those that are of the opinion that there has been little, if any, real contributions made by sound in film. Should sound have been added to film at all? A look back at the history of film, from silent movies to “talkies” to major motion pictures of the 1990s, will help establish the fact that film has not only benefited from the addition of sound, but has only gotten more sophisticated with time. “Reevaluating the role of sound in film history and according it its true importance is not purely a critical or historical enterprise. The future of cinema is at stake. It can be better and livelier if it can learn something valuable from its own past” (Chion, 1994, p. 142). There is no argument that, in cinema, it is the image that will continue to radiate power and spectacle. However, the technological and conceptual advances that have been made over the decades reinforce the fact that it is the role of sound to decorate the image and “show” us what it wants......

Jet Noise, the Sound of Insomnia or Sound of Freedom

...Matthew Ricci Dr Merricks English 102 28 February 2014 Jet noise throughout South Hampton Roads The sound of freedom or not? Society today is filed with noise; there is no escaping it. The combined toll of occupational, recreational, and environmental noise exposure from sounds that is heard daily can possibly pose a serious public health issue. Everyday noise society looks at as “common” can include heavy construction equipment, sirens from emergency vehicles, lawn mowers and a little more noticeable, jet noise. No denying that anyone who has lived near an airport in any number of big cities or spent time in proximity to a military installation has been exposed to and possibly inconvenienced by the loud sounds of jet aircraft. To the locals that have lived and spent time in the Hampton Roads area, jet noise is as common as hearing a fire engine. Anyone living or working near one of the several military bases in the area or the Norfolk International Airport has heard or been affected in some way by jet noise. Jets noise in this part of Virginia is not just a daily occurrence but also a necessary one in order to preserve troop readiness and even society’s way of life. An examination of the state of global insecurity creating much higher operational military requirements since 9/11 and the economic stability our military bases provide reveal the necessity for higher tolerance of jet noise. Military training and readiness are directly proportional to the......

Sound

...Every sound we hear around us is also part of our lives. If we look at the other side of sound, it could be our memory or rewind us back to our childhood time. Sounds come from everywhere, everything, and such as: animals, nature include weather, or objects in the environment. For me, I hear a lot of sounds in my whole life. Some of the sounds I hear can make me think back of my childhood’s memories. Summer season almost approach to us. Sound that most reminds me of the summer are related to insect, weather, and natural. Surprisingly enough, insect is the most annoying bugs at night in the summer. They are everywhere, from the grass to the trees. One night in summer day, I was sitting outside in the balcony in the dark and couldn’t see things well because I lit the candles. I heard the “buzz, zee” sound around my ear; I knew some kind of bee around me. I was terrified that night because I would look horrible if I got stung. I immediately blew the candle so the bee couldn’t see me. Lucky me, it flew away after a few minutes. Bumble bees are a big nightmare to me. So every time I see bees, I remember that night. It was a scary night but also a memory in summer. Bumble bees are friendly to some people but it is my enemy. Summer is the season of rain, thunderstorm and lightning. Everyone likes rain because it cleans out all the dirt and pollen from the trees. When I see rain, I remember my six- grade school year in my country. Back then, we wore uniform when we went to school...

Just by what I have seen and heard from various producers of cell phones I do believe that the cell phone tech is going to be in the field of a wearable devices the new (in the last few years ) watches are just the start. In the 50’s Dick Tracy had a watch that the new watches mimic so what is next will it implants or projectable it is hard to tell but in my thoughts it will be in the realm of a wearable and possibly a wearable projection device. Articale #1 Cast your mind back to late 2008, when the first Android-powered handset saw the light of day. Obama won his first Presidential election, Apple launched its App Store (the iPhone had appeared the year before), Google announced its own Chrome browser and we got our first look at the company's new mobile OS on the T-Mobile G1. The Android of 2013 is a world away from that 2008 version, where the Android Market was in its infancy, there were no native video playback capabilities and the G1 had no multi-touch support. But Google is going to have to keep innovating and improving its mobile OS to keep the lion's share of the smartphone market. We've taken a peek into the future to consider what Android might look like in the year 2020. With new Android monikers now appearing about......

...new TLF Panel survey conducted on behalf of kids clothing retailer Vertbaudet.co.uk found that four in five parents believe technology and gadgets are good for kids, aiding in their development. The study found that 37 percent of parents asked said that their child spent between one and two hours a day playing with tech gadgets, and 28 percent said between two- and three hours. Moreover, the study found that 38 percent of two- to five-year-olds own an Android tablet, and 32 percent own an iPad; almost a third (32 percent) of these kids also have a mobile phone. The reason behind all this gadget use: over a third of parents (35 percent) said they use tech gadgets to entertain their children because they are convenient, and nearly a quarter (23 percent) because they want their children to be tech-savvy. A 2015 survey of 1,000 British mothers of children aged 2 to 12 found that 85 percent of mums admit to using technology to keep the kids occupied while they get on with other activities. The AO.com survey pointed to children spending on average around 17 hours a week in front of a screen – almost double the 8.8 weekly hours spent playing outside. Wanting our children to tech-savvy is understandable, and the need to keep them entertained will also make sense to many a parent. But we must also weigh up the risks associated with children having too much screen time. In his lecture ‘Managing Screen Time and Screen Dependency’ Dr Aric Sigman argues that “whether it’s Facebook, the......

...this horrible information was released to the public. Since being dropped by her network and publisher, Deen has sought to regain her celebrity chef status. She has reached out directly to her fans through her tour with Paula Dean Live!, an event featuring cooking demonstrations. In June 2014, Dean also announced plans to start her own network online. The Paula Deen Network will offer original programming to its subscribers. Set to launch in September, the network will present such shows as 20-Minute Meals and Paula Cooking Light. In my opinion I think Paula Deen should talk more about racism and how it was something she learned growing up in the south. I grew up in the Midwest and I think people need to hear the truth and not what sounds good. I was a Paula Deen fan and still to this day use some of her recipes. I do not agree with some of the language she was using but I was not surprised one bit because people are taught racists beliefs from childhood especially in the south. I know myself along with many other fans would just love to see awareness raised about this issue and move forward and not backwards. !4 References http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/07/living/paula-deen-brownface-feat/index.htmlThe reference page always begins on the top of the next page after the conclusion. paula-deen-issues-video-apology-racial-slur-article-1 ...

...feel that what they are buying is directed to those who demand the best. So when critics argue that Apple is very controlling over their products and who can develop software’s for them or sell them, you can be sure that, that is exactly how CEO Steve Jobs wants it to be. It’s very clear how this technological mogul has got to where it is, by not compromising or losing focus on what their mission as a company is. Nicholas Bonsack reports, “In a recent Consumer Reports survey focusing on four aspects of customer service for computers — problem solved, phone wait time, and the quality of phone and online support staffs — Consumer Reports subscribers gave Apple the highest marks among the top computer vendors for both laptop and desktop tech support. Apple was the only company to earn top scores in all four categories”(2). Aside from Apple striving to be the most innovative computer and electronic device manufacturer, they also out do themselves when it comes to customer service, which we all wish was true for most of the companies out there. You can say that Apple has found a secret recipe for success, combining innovation, quality, style and an outstanding after sale service. Now it’s not so hard to figure out what all the hype is about. They are profoundly dedicated to solving our problems as consumers, while giving us beautifully simple devices that do what we need them to do and then some. By not being interested in pleasing absolutely everyone, they give their......

...I remember a sound in my dream that was telling me that I should make the most out of my life. The sound was saying that I am the captain of my own ship. However, I ignored the sound because I thought that I had all that I ever wanted in life. After waking up in the morning, I thought to myself. I reflected on all the terrible things I had done with my life and thought that the sound was right. However, I told myself that it was just but a dream. Little did I know that the sound was trying to drive me out of the bad things that I was doing into engaging into a righteous lifestyle. However, I thought that a righteous lifestyle was meant for those people who were desperate in life. I therefore continued to live my life as I used to without caring about tomorrow. However, after I was declared jobless and I had spent all my resources on lavish activities, I sat down and thought about the voice that was once telling me to refrain from the lavish activities. I started thinking that the voice in my dreams was trying to direct me on the right path but I ignored it. Now is the high time that I am beginning to think of the things that I should have done when I first heard the voice in my dreams telling me that I should make the most out of my life. I am now aware that I should have listened to the inner voice that was telling me about molding my life when I still had the chance to do it....
