Blues On My Mind In this song by Blue Mitchell, Blues On My mind, Blue Mitchell really emphasizes the blues in his solo. The chords in the song are played a little differently than the regular. There is a lot of added notes such as the ninth in chords as well as added fifths. The drummer is playing a shuffle type feel throughout the whole song. The snare hits on two and four along with the cymbal. In the solo, Blue Mitchell uses the basic blues except he adds a couple of bebop lines especially in the measures with the a minor seven and the d dominant seven. Blue Mitchell also likes using double time in the song. He uses a lot of space and repetition in his songs as well as a lot of linear lines. In the space that he uses, the piano comps different rhythms to fill in the extra space that he leaves. Blue Mitchell’s tone on this piece is very sharp as in precise. All the lines that he plays are very clear. The bass player in the song is keeping a constant quarter note so there aren't any changes in the rhythm. Overall, this solo has a lot of vocabulary I can learn in a bebop aspect as well as blues aspect. Everyone is so together on this album like I can feel two and four. Two and four really stick out on this song. I also realized that Blue Mitchell uses a lot of triplets in his solo. The bass player, piano player and drums are locked…...

My Favorite Place

...April 17,2012 My Favorite Place Through out the whole world, there are plenty of places where people love to go. Some may be a certain area, a store, a home, or even a different country. One place can hold special values to one person. Whether it’s a memory or memories, a feeling, or even just being in the environment. All of it leads up to being a persons “favorite place”. Everyone has a favorite place in their home, a place where he or she can be him or herself. Somewhere you can find peace and harmony. For some it's a quiet place, for others it's a hustling, bustling, full of people and movement place. But all of these places have one thing in common; they are places where you'd run to in times of both joy and stress. There is one place to me that makes me feel like I am the only one in the world. I chose this place because its stress free. It’s the only place in my house where I can be myself. I don’t have to worry about what others have to say. I can lay back and relax on my bed. A lot of times I just lay down and close my eyes and daydream about places I'd like to see or think about things that make me happy. One thing I do not do is think about things I need to get done or anything that makes me feel stressed because then I’ll never feel relaxed. I usually try to stay away from these kinds of thoughts and it usually works out well. Being able to watch whatever I please on my own television. Even playing my Xbox 360, without having to share with my brothers.......

Decrees

...You. Decree Work Page 1 In the name of the Christ Self and in the name of the Living-God, I call forth the energies of the Sacred Fire from the altar within my heart. In the name of the I AM THAT I AM, I invoke the Violet Flame to blaze forth from the center of the threefold flame, from the white-fire core of my own I AM Presence, multiplied by the momentum of the Blessed Ascended Master Saint Germain. I call forth that light to penetrate my soul and to activate my soul memory of freedom and the original blueprint of my soul’s destiny. I call forth the violet transmuting flame to pass through my four lower bodies and through my soul consciousness to transmute the cause and core of all that is less than my Christ-Perfection, all that is not in keeping with the Will of God for my life-stream. So let it be done by the cloven tongues of the Fire of the Holy Spirit in the fulfillment of the action of that sacred fire, As Above, So Below. And I accept it done this hour in the Full Power of the Living God who even now declares within my soul, I AM WHO I AM! OH MY CONSTANT LOVING I AM PRESENCE Oh my constant loving I AM Presence, thou Light God above me whose radiance forms a circle of fire before me to light my way. I AM faithfully calling to Thee to place a great pillar of light from my own Mighty I AM God Presence all around me right today. Keep it intact through every passing moment, manifesting as a shimmering shower of God’s......

Can a Computer Have a Mind?

...In this paper, I will evaluate Putnam’s, Turing’s and Searle’s argument concerning computers having consciousness. I will argue that Searle’s argument against computers having consciousness is the stronger argument of the three arguments. Firstly, I will begin by examining the Turing’s and Putman’s argument showing their strengths and weaknesses. Then I will layout Searle’s argument and showing it strengths and weaknesses. Consequently, I will show that although Artificial Intelligence has the capability of producing machines that have humanistic functions, this science however lacks the ability to produce computers with minds. In other words, computers will do a lot, but won’t be a lot. Artificial Intelligence according to the Webster dictionary can be defined as computer programs developed to mimic human intelligence, such as reasoning, learning, problem-solving, and making decisions. Artificial intelligence programs enable computers to perform tasks such as playing chess, proving mathematical theorems, etc. The definition of Artificial Intelligence can be further placed into four categories, these are systems that think like humans, systems that act like humans, systems that think rationally and systems that act rationally. Let examine the Turing test; this is test experiment invented by as the name suggests by A.M Turing as a proposal for the question whether machines can think. This experiment is one in which two connecting rooms are arranged each consisting of a......

Confusion

...idea to put me out of my comfort zone, or driving by a strange new place that I’ve never seen before. Confusion could really hit at any time. Life as a whole is a bunch of years jumbled up into one long, confusing mess. With so many different options of what to believe, who to trust, what foods to like, or what I am comfortable doing, how do I not get confused? As confusing as it is, I love my life, but at the same time, why does it seem that I really ever know what’s going on? Okay, I am aware that virtually every college student is going through some oh-so-terribly-confusing time in their life. So why is it that I feel that nobody understands my confusion? Simply that. It’s mine, not anyone else’s. Since this uncertainty belongs to me and only me, why do I seem to think that my confusion trumps yours? Why do I feel that I am ultimately more important? I have always wondered that when see the color red, somebody else could be seeing what you think of as the color blue and just was always taught that this so-called blue color has and always will be called red? This has intrigued me since a young age, and I can’t seem to come to terms with the fact that I will never understand this. I’m sure there’s some big elaborate scientific explanation on why my red could be your blue, but I choose to believe that my confusion can’t be overcome. Albert Einstein once stated, “Confusion of goals and perfection of means seem, in my opinion, to......

...think we all have a beautiful place in our mind. I have a wonderful place that made me happy a lot of times, many years ago. But sometimes I think that I am the only person who likes this place and I'm asking myself if this place will be as beautiful as I thought when I will go back to visit it again. Perhaps I made it beautiful in my mind.     This place is meaningful to me because it is part of the county I loved, is part of the county where I grew up and is part of my childhood. This place is in the country in an old region named Appalachia, a small piece of the Appalachian Mountains, in a town named Pikeville.     Pikeville is a polluted town because of the coal industry. People live in apartment or condominium buildings because of its little space available. I grew up in one of the many buildings in Pikeville admiring from my bedroom window the beauty of the mountains, always exploring with my eyes the forest or the meadows, looking for a clean and quiet place. And, I found one on a hill in the back of the town. It is about 100 feet square, it has seven old trees, wild flowers and a lot of bugs and ants during summer time.     I used to go there to sit down on a rock and watch the town and my trees. There was a very old tree, a maple tree, with a huge trunk. The others were smaller, three in the back, three on my left side and the old maple tree on my right. There were flowers, many kinds, white, yellow, purple and blue. It was nobody's place. Nobody......

The Beautiful Ocean

...Beautiful Ocean The above-sea world has many wonderful and beautiful sights. As air-breathing, land dwellers, we can look up during the day and see the enormous bright blue sky with puffs of clouds that look like cotton candy, stars that flicker like little candles at night, and strong, tall oaks that look like skyscrapers. Being above water has many beautiful sights to offer but just where those beauties end another world with its own beauties begins. Scuba diving at a spot near my uncle’s house in Key West takes me to a whole new world. My uncle’s small beach house in Key West is one of my favorite places to visit. His beach house is a sea weed green color, and he hangs old bobbers and fishing poles, decomposing nets, and old brittle fish bones from its green walls. The water in Key West is a vivid turquoise blue that looks like a boat full of paint has spilled in it, and the beaches are as white as powdered sugar. My favorite spot to scuba dive is about a ten-minute boat ride off the coast of Key West. My uncle’s boat takes us out into the deep blue water. It is an old and noisy fishing boat that has traveled around the Florida Keys many times. Hearing the roar of its tired engine, smelling the salt water, and feeling the mist hitting my face from the splashing waves gets me ready to dive in the bright blue abyss. Getting scuba gear on takes a few minutes of tightening many straps and pulling zippers, but when finished, it feels like an extra layer of skin......

...(upper mid older w/o kids), Mobility Blues (downscale middle age w/o kids), Park Bench Seniors w/o kids), Second City Elite (upscale older w/o kids) and Sunset City Blues (lower mid older mostly w/o kids). C.) The PRIZM Segment that I chose is Mobility Blues. I chose Mobility Blues because it the only one out of the top five that I felt even remotely came close in reference to myself. Mobility Blues describes young singles/single parents. A working class neighborhood racially mixed between the ages of 30 and under. This PRIZM Segment lives a modest lifestyle because of the lower income blue collar jobs. It has been shown that their activities consist of movies, playing basketball and shooting pool. D.) The description matched to the ZIP CODE I chose does and does not fit what I believe I know about the area in my opinion. I agree to a certain extent because the statistic (survey) is correct with the age criteria (30 and under), my area is definitely of working class and racially mixed. However I do believe that we make money than what is noted. From the look of my neighborhood (homes and apartments) and the vehicles that are driven I would say that our life styles are decent, very adequate. As far as activities everyone has their own interest but overall I agree with the activities listed in addition to gymnastics, karate, dance, and baseball….the activities that we pay for our children to participate in. Lastly the description of my area being people mostly without......

...The NICU life: I wake up not having slept. My mind races throughout the night. I pump my milk faithfully because I know a certain little man needs it more than I will ever know. I call the nurse almost every 4 hours. Is he ok? Did he have episodes of low numbers? Is he still off the breathing machine? Can you please give him a hug for me. All these thoughts race my mind and I cant escape it. I finally shower. My eyes look like I've been punched because the dark circles are so bad from lack of sleep. My hair is barely brushed. Half the time I don't even know what I am doing because I am so focused on seeing my son. Finally I get in my car and drive 30-45 minutes to see him, depending on traffic. I cuss as I try to find parking at the hospital and it frustrates me. Will I make it in time to see him being fed, will I be able to hold him today. Did he miss me, does he know how much I love him. I cant even type this status because tears roll down my face. Finally I get a parking spot. I race to the elevators, second floor please. I take the long walk down the hallway to his nursery. Its quiet and there is always a chill in the air. Breast milk in hand I finally reach the check in. I sign in, rush to scrub my hands, sanitize my hands and get my special ID badge. At this point it seems like hours have gone by since I left my house. My mind still races. Finally I walk back and see him. There he is all snuggled in, at this point I'm exhausted but I can finally breathe, or can I?......

Observation Paper

...Mandi Lurkins October 26, 2010 ENG-105 (12) Ms. Duncan Do Fish Ever Sleep? Brilliant shades of blue, green, yellow, orange and red flashed all around me as I peered into a view of life as we know it. It was as if a box of crayons had exploded, with wonderful accuracy, all around the room creating a kaleidoscope effect on my eyes. This fantasy land gave me the chance to stare face to face at nature’s natural rawness; its awe-inspiring beauty. It was nothing but a bountiful blossom of blooming colors that attracted my eye in more ways than one. I had a strange feeling of being a native in this far distant land with all elements coming forth; earth, air, some artificial fire, and most abundantly water. I was, after all, at the Rainforest Café so this scene only seems fitting. Eating at the Rainforest Café is always a great adventure, but on this particular Sunday it proved to be an eye opener for me. As the lovely hostess sat my family down at our table I began to take in my surroundings more so than ever before. I became lost in the world of tropical plants and animals. To my left was a family of gorillas looking mighty fierce and highly mischievous, especially the youngster swinging about on a vine. Straight ahead of me was a baby grey, and his large tusked mother flapping their ears and trunks about. Finally to my right was the piece that struck me with the most fascination. Perhaps it had to do with the contents inside that were actually real rather than......

Procrastination Essay

...Procrastination – An essay on If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler written by Italo Calvino Perhaps this sentence would suit as the closing one. Well at least I have to consider it. Finally, ideas are starting to evolve now that I have sat myself down with my cup of coffee; Calvino thought drinking coffee was adequate for reading and writing, so I drink it while I do just that, read or write. The amount of procrastination this essay has received is not even measurable through the metric system; such large amounts are we talking about, well that is how my mind put it. I think the deadline was the 21st of December and today it’s the 14th of March, the accurate word for this instance would be insane. An understanding for how evil my procrastinating self can become has been stated. Let’s google procrastination, did you get the same hit as I did? “Procrastination refers to the act of replacing high-priority actions with tasks of lower priority” I could not possibly agree more. “To beat procrastination you have to win the performing-race against your procrastinating self”, well let’s start beating this procrastinating dude then, to begin with, what should I write about? Maybe I can use this procrastination situation in my essay, after all the first six pages in If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino are all about procrastination. Or should I write about how the novel is structured with every second chapter being a separate story and how that is entwined with the duality...

...looking up at a screen. The screen told him what to cook, how to cook it and where to put it once he had cooked it. He was happy with his job, his wife, his life. But then all of a sudden, when he was standing at his station he looked up at the screen and nothing was there, there were no instructions or directions to tell him what to do. Harold felt a small unfamiliar feeling of uncertainty and before he knew it, Harold had already begun his adventure. Harold stood at his station for a while; he noticed how time began to drift away faster and faster whilst his glazed eyes stared up at the screen. He had no idea how long had passed. Minutes? Hours? Days? Months? He knew that he would have to brave leaving his station soon. So, with this in mind, he took a sharp breath and lowered his spatula, giving him a grand feeling of dropping a great burden from himself. He pulled his eyes away from the screen and looked towards the exit sign on his right, can Harold do it? Can he drop the world he knows to adventure into a world unknown? Harold slowly approached the sign and opened the large metallic door beneath it. Once he opened the large door he came to another room, a clean and well-furnished room with a set of two opened doors which lay in front of him alongside each other. Upon seeing these doors, Harold took the door on his right. But Harold decides to take the Left door instead, maybe he wanted to go and enjoy the employee lounge in all its glory. So Harold made his way through......

Review of Kant's Theory

...English 121 November 12 2015 Kant’s theory While Immanuel Kant was one of the greatest thinkers to date, I found myself left with questions with no real clear answers about his work. One of my major questions I had actually came to me while I was reading though this chapter for the first time. I found difficulties involving his uniquely perceived dissimilarities differentiating a priori and a posteriori knowledge. In my personal opinion the main bulk of our individualistic conception and interpretation of the world stems almost solely from our personal involvement and observations of said world. It was this line of questioning I followed to my true problem with his theory: does all knowledge begins a posteriori; and can there truly be a form of a priori knowledge? Immanuel Kant's proposed classification of what it is that establishes a priori knowledge, knowledge of a subject with no previous experience or observations, seemed to impress upon me that all our perceived a priori knowledge must have originally streamed from, or been reasoned out from a previous a posteriori knowledge. Even a simple suggested "a priori knowledge" such something as trivial as “the sky is blue” is dependent on experience. When we think of the statement “the sky is blue” our subconscious minds unknowingly affirms this bit of information with prior memories associated with the sky or colors, which all originated through first-hand experience. Consequently, as time passes on, the grouped......
