My guitar foot rest is a multipurpose foot rest which is one of a kind. I believe Treble Cleft Musical Instrument Co will not hesitate to choose it. Here are some of the reasons why my foot rest is perfect for the music department.
Situation:
The foot rest has a heel of 75mm and an adjustable toe of 140mm and 170mm. it slopes upwards heel to toe. The foot rest can be folded to a box but is still easy to store. It is stable and can survive in a high school environment. If there are ever any problems with it then repairing and rebuilding is not a problem because of the simplicity of this product.
Problems and possibilities:
Test and evaluate:
I am very happy with the final product and how it turned out because I expected my product not to work out and meet any requirements. The product took me lots of time because I kept changing my ideas. This is one of the reasons I had a late start as I did not have a specific idea.
The two biggest problems I dealt with during the creation of this foot rest are:
I couldn’t find the right idea for myself until I went into building the structure with an idea that changed in the designing process. As I was checking the height of the structure with a piece of the foam bored, I realized if this piece of foam is built inside the foot rest it would able to hold up the top and meet the required height. This encouraged me to erase all of the old ideas and built the structure with the new idea.
Another problem that was encountered was that I did not know how to cut properly. Whenever I would cut the foam board it would not end up as clean as I want it to be. All the sides and edges had a very rough finish which had to be sanded down to be fixed. The sanding partly fixed it. I also used other parts to hide these rough finishes.
If I were to do this again I would think of one idea and stick to it to get an early start. I would also plan out the idea in my notes to make sure it works out. While building my structure I would get help from a peer who can cut cleanly. This way there would be less time wasted on sanding.

Personal Narrative: Kali Trinity Herrick

...My full name is Kali Trinity Herrick–I know that it seems short, but it’s true. The only language that I actually speak fluently is English. I’ve attempted to learn many other languages, such as Spanish, Italian, and German, but I didn’t get as far as I wish that I did.

Cariñosa

...Cariñosa This flirtatious dance called Cariñosa is known throughout the Philippines. Cariñosa ('kah-reehn-YOH-sah') means affectionate, lovable, or amiable. With a fan or handkerchief, the dancers go through hide-and-seek movements and other flirting acts expressing tender feelings for one another. There are many versions of this dance, but the hide-and-seek movements are common in all. The first ever published notation of the Cariñosa dance steps was from the book Philippine Folk Dances and Games by Francisca Reyes-Tolentino (later became an Aquino). Mrs Tolentino's master's thesis which has the same title was revised and was later published in 1927. However, the most common of the many Cariñosa found in the country is the one from the book "Philippine Folk Dances v1" by Francisca Reyes Aquino, published sometime in 1940. The version integrated all the common dance figures among the many versions throughout the land. Three versions of this courtship-festival dance were found in Panay Island, the "Home of the Carinosa". Three different dance researchers discovered three equally beautiful Cariñosa dances. Petronila Suarez had her Carinosa Binggawan, Jose Balcena's informant; an old dancing virtuoso name Casimiro earned him the identity of Balcena's cariñosa version: Tatay Meroy Cariñosa. Tatay Meroy was an old bachelor from Roxas City who because of old age became aggressive in his courting of a future partner. This version dramatizes Tatay Mero's pursuit of his......

The Dance

...pouring out of my apertures since the song had started. The chorus was soon to be concluded; I was waiting for the fatal lyric that would tell me to begin. It felt like hours, but then at last it came; the thing I so eagerly awaited, "We will, we will rock you!" Finally it had come; at last the anxiety for the past two months was over. I was ready for it and so I sprang like a cheetah at his prey, and so it began. It had all started two months ago on a black dreary week. I had been having a horrendous day that Friday, but then it happened. We had been working on “We Will Rock You” that morning. As we progressed through learning all the steps, the pounding of the music came to the guitar solo. The choreographer stopped the music to ask me and Daniel Hinkson to do gymnastic tricks while the guitar solo came about. Speechless, as I was, is all that I can say to describe how I felt at that moment. Even though I was extremely flabbergasted, my mind was going five millions miles per hour thinking; What to do? How to do it? As I asked myself these questions, the plan came to my mind of presenting the front flip for everyone to gasp over. I came to Daniel with the idea and he was extraordinarily astonished about it. So now that we had our main attraction presumably completed, we were ready to fill the other thirty-five seconds of the solo with other exclusive tricks. We began brainstorming like mad men throwing ideas here and there; we finally had conducted enough to start......

...CONSOLACION COMMUNITY COLLEGE LARAY, CONSOLACION, CEBU FINAL PROJECT IN P.E 2 PREPARED BY: ALVAREZ, FEBE ROSE L. AHRM-1 INSTRUCTOR: MR. RODGRIGO APOS SOCIAL DANCES * WALTZ HISTORY The Waltz is the oldest of the ballroom dances, dating from the middle of the Eighteenth Century. The German "Lander", a folk dance, is supposed to be the forerunner of the Waltz. During this time period a dance developed which was called the "Walzer", a word owing its origin to the Latin word Volvere, which indicates a rotating motion. Napoleon's invading solders spread the waltz from Germany to Paris; then the dance glided across the channel to England and finally made its way to the United States. When the Waltz was first introduced into the ballrooms of the world in the early years of the Nineteenth Century, it was met with outraged indignation, for it was the first dance where the couple danced in a modified Closed Position - with the man's hand around the waist of the lady. Beginning about 1830, the waltz was given a tremendous boost by two Austrian composers Lanner and Strauss. They set the standard for the Viennese Waltz, a very fast version played at about 55 - 60 measures per minute. The fast tempo did indeed present problems. Much of the enjoyment of the new dance was lost in the continual strain to keep up with the music. It is not known exactly when the waltz was introduced to the United States. It was probably brought to New York and Philadelphia at about...

...Anthony Kiedis In this essay I am going to tell you about one of the best singer/songwriters that the music industry has ever known, his name is Anthony Kiedis. Kiedis was born on November 1, 1962 in Grand Rapids, Michigan to his father Michael Kiedis and his mother Margaret Noble. In 1966 when Kiedis was just 3 years old his parents divorced; along with his 2 half-sisters Kiedis lived with his mother and step-father in Grand Rapids. Each summer he would visit his father in Hollywood for two weeks which he recalled "Those trips to California were the happiest, most carefree, the-world-is-a-beautiful-oyster times I'd ever experienced." In 1974, when Kiedis was 12 years old he moved to Hollywood with his father full time. Kiedis’ father was a struggling actor and a drug dealer, which had a very strong impact on Kiedis. The two would often smoke marijuana and use cocaine together, and at the age of 14 Kiedis used heroin for the first time mistaking it for cocaine, from then on it was an downhill struggle (Kiedis, 10). Kiedis attended Fairfax High School in Los Angeles where he struggled to find friends at first, being from another school district let along another state. He soon met Michael Balzary, better known as Flea, while sitting next to him in drivers-ed class. After a brief confrontation the two became best friends and were virtually inseparable. Kiedis had a big influence on Flea, introducing him to rock music, punk rock in particular. Kiedis also met future band......

Dance History

...by diversity and rapid change, marking the official development of some of the more popular styles of dance that are still around today, including ballet. Originally, ballet was a style of dance that was typically showcased at European courts and used to celebrate marriages as well as other ceremonial processions. As ballet became more popular, often being performed by aristocracy in royal courts, this style of dance was defined by graceful arm and upper body movements as well as elaborate floor patterns (Victoria and Albert Museum, 2015.). At the turn of the 18th century, ballet evolved into what we know today with women wearing flat slippers allowing them greater flexibility in the foot, greater range of movement, and the opportunity to discover the trick of rising up onto the ball of their foot, or demi-pointe. Surprisingly, the role of music in ballet was not necessarily emphasized right away, as the dance itself was seen as being more important, but as the focus of ballet shifted, the compositions of the dances began to take an equal prevalence. This resulted in the creation of more complex pieces of music, rather than just being an accompaniment for solo and ensembles...

Heavy Metal as a Social Movement

...Heavy Metal as a Social Movement Thorin Shafer [Social Movements] Dr.Harry Murray Prologue It began in Aston, Birmingham in 1969 with Black Sabbath…. Factory worker and world renowned Guitarist Tony Iommi lost the fingertips of his ring finger and his middle finger on his right hand in a work related accident. Being left handed, this almost prevented him from playing guitar ever again. Instead he found a work around that would prove to be most beneficial for the metal movement that was to take place thereafter. After attempting to play right handed, He tuned his guitar down with lighter strings and used homemade plastic fingertips and created a new sound. After playing with several bands in the early 1960’s, he teamed with Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward under the moniker Earth. After some controversy with another band who shared the name Earth, in August of 1969 they changed the name of the band to Black Sabbath. This breathed new air into the band and they would go on to be pioneers in The Heavy Metal genre for decades to come. Black Sabbath paved the way for other bands like Motorhead, Deep Purple, and Rainbow. It was these bands that would be influential and play a pivotal role in the lives of the next wave of heavy metal bands that was to come. It started out slowly in 1969 and took a bit of a nosedive in the 1970’s with the disco era, but the 1980’s and the 1990’s would be two decades of aggression that would......

Personal Narrative Essay: The Story Of My Life

...heavy to carry, and headed out the door. I bounded into our sizable, argentous Chevrolet Tahoe, where Mom was waiting. Her foot was on the gas pedal, ready to accelerate. We got to our destination, the church, in less than five minutes. We managed to be both late and the first people there. “Looks like you’re the only one going!” joked my youth pastor Brian, a bald, pudgy, middle aged man. Shortly after my arrival, the other teenagers began to show up. We embraced our parents goodbye, eager to go, and loaded up our belongings into the bed of Brian’s icy blue metallic GMC truck. There were two vehicles ready to make the voyage to the beach. In Brian’s truck was Hunter, Krista and Makayla squished into the back of the cab. Brian’s wife Tracy, a middle aged jovial woman, was riding in the passenger seat. The rest of us rode in the other car, a ruby red Dodge minivan. Hunter’s mom, who we call Momma Ang, was driving. Jake had called shotgun, so Jenna and I took the middle in the captain-style seats, while Taylor, Guy and Isaac squished into the third row. I was really glad that I got to ride with Jenna and Taylor, two benevolent and lively youth group members. I had been a little anxious about the riding situation the night before. For what felt like hours of being confined in the car and playing endless road trip games, we stopped at a ramshackle of a rest stop somewhere in North Carolina. Jake, a fiery redhead, had already fallen asleep, so I was a little timid to wake him......

Individuality The Shrew

...As such, Katharine the “shrew” is stubborn, ill-mannered, constantly made fun of, and a woman who isn’t under any man’s foot. Well, that is until she meets Petruchio (Patrick, in the movie). The theme individuality is explored almost immediately in Act 1 Scene when the characters Hortensio and Grumio reveal the social bias society held in relation to women and marriage in those days. Both characters represent the views that women should give-up their individuality for marriage, which in the 1589 was the social norm. The contrasting elements related to individuality are that Kat of ‘Ten Things’ lives in a world that allows her to be an individual yet much like ‘The Shrew’, she is pressured to conform to society’s expectations. However she is spared the insults related to remaining single and proud of it, the shrew is is ostracized and abused for not being the submissive...

No Angel

...The first time I saw my father after he died, I was in the shower, hair plastered with conditioner, when the water stuttered and turned cold. He was at the sink in front of the misted-up mirror with the tap running, his back to me. It was two weeks after his funeral. His things were all where he’d left them. ‘Them tiles would need re-grouting,’ he said, and pointed his razor at the salmon pink mould that was growing below the mirror. I stared at him through the circle I’d wiped in the shower door. ‘I didn’t know you’d be able to do that,’ I said. ‘Oh yes,’ he said, ‘any decent tradesman would sort that out for you.’ The twitch of a smile; thran as before. He looked more or less the same. When he turned his face to scrape the razor along his jaw, I could see that the scar was healing well, where the surgeon had removed the growth from the side of his nose. His skin was more yellow maybe; more so at the nicotine-stained finger tips. ‘Are they treating you well?’ I asked him. ‘So, so. The food’s not great. Nothing seems to have much of a taste.’ ‘I suppose you empty the salt cellar over it still?’ ‘What harm’s it going to do me now?’ I looked at him, at the thin white hair curling at the back of his neck from the steam in the bathroom; the earth under his fingernails. ‘I’m getting cold,’ I said. ‘Don’t worry,’ he said, bending to splash water on his face, his knees creaking, ‘I’m going now anyway,’ and away he went. The next time I saw him, I was on the train, on......

My colleague and fellow scribe Tony Wilson had secured the precious black vinyl LP and dropped it onto the turntable, awaiting my reaction. We were immediately transfixed by the brash, bold sounds that fought their way out of the lofi speakers – Robert Plant’s screaming vocals, the eerie Hammond organ sounds of John Paul Jones, and Jimmy Page’s supreme guitar mastery. But amid the kaleidoscope of impressions, the drums were the primary element that set pulses racing. We marveled at the sheer audacity, the sense of...
