The poem begins with the speaker asking a fearsome tiger what kind of divine being could have created it: “What immortal hand or eye/ Could frame they fearful symmetry?” Each subsequent stanza contains further questions, all of which refine this first one. From what part of the cosmos could the tiger’s fiery eyes have come, and who would have dared to handle that fire? What sort of physical presence, and what kind of dark craftsmanship, would have been required to “twist the sinews” of the tiger’s heart? The speaker wonders how, once that horrible heart “began to beat,” its creator would have had the courage to continue the job. Comparing the creator to a blacksmith, he ponders about the anvil and the furnace that the project would have required and the smith who could have wielded them. And when the job was done, the speaker wonders, how would the creator have felt? “Did he smile his work to see?” Could this possibly be the same being who made the lamb?

... Denmark or Switzerland’s average. Around 25 percent of Ireland’s GDP goes towards paying for the welfare system, as compared to 15 percent of America’ GDP towards America’s social support programs. New Zealand New Zealand may not be a socialist country, but the welfare system in the country is very wide ranging, offering support for housing, unemployment, health, child care, and education as well. Therefore, New Zealand has many of the characteristics of a socialist country, even while remaining officially free market. Belgium Lastly, Belgium has most of the same social security benefits that New Zealand offers, including invalid and old age pensions. The welfare system causes much of the country’s budget deficit though, and so is considered by some to be a burden on society. List of Socialist Countries with Individual Details Z. Perry, Yahoo!

Practice date: Sept 23, Monday Time of day: 19.30 P.M. ---20 P.M. Daily Goal: Practice the correct breathe way and try to find a balanced, free, and flexible singing posture as Emily said in the class, and also do some warm up. In the first voice class, I learnt that how to breathe in a right way. I not only need to inhale quickly and exhale slowly when I sing a song, but I also need to maintain right posture. Emily taught me that when I inhaling or exhaling, I both need to release my shoulder and muscle. When I practice the inhaling, I try to only to mouth to inhale. I also practice to explore the sensation that let the air fall lower than my belly button. Then let the breath fall in faster. After that I felt that my abdomen and lower back expand. When I practice the exhaling, I felt that it is more difficult to expand my belly than inhaling. I have to control my exhalation and have a sustained and smooth exhalation. I want to develop good posture while I breathe. A balanced, free, and flexible posture is fundamental to efficient vocal production and lovely voice quality. Emily taught me that when my body is aligned correctly, taking and using an efficient breath is easier. So I......

Voice vs. Data

...Cell phones are both voice and data. Voice was the first initiative use for the phone. Then after they have noticed that the cell phone could transfer data, they decided to push the data limitations. That is how we got to 4g today. A landline is voice without a modem. The landline cannot transfer data unless it has a converter called a modem. When this modem is applied the landline then could connect to a computer and transfer data. Sms/text messaging is definitely just data. There is no voice involved in those programs. Texting is the same as typing and is delivered like a message from an email. Sms is correlated with chat online which is a data transfer. Fax machines are considered voice/data. With this I do get confused. On some fax machines you talk on them, while others are more like computers. Most fax machines are connected to the landline. Pagers are data, there is not talking into them. And you can only receive data, and maybe send one back. Some pagers are considered sms/text messengers, with that in mine; it definitely reassures me that it is a data. VoIP is data. You ask me how I know. I say because of the cord that it has to go through. It would most likely go through a cat 5. VoIP is an online phone service. Anything online is considered data regardless of the voice that you get to input into it. Skype and face time are both voice and data. It really depends I guess where you Skype from or with what. Cell phones are both data and voice. So what is......

Voice& Data

...Between voice and data networks the way we communicate has evolved momentously. A data network is an electronic communications process that allows for the orderly transmission and reception of data. Voice Networks are local, national, or international networks used to carry voice or telephone traffic. Cellular network technology supports a ranked configuration formed by based transceiver station (BTS), mobile switching center (MSC), home locations registers (HLR), and public switched telephone network (PSTN). These cells composed provide radio reporting over large physical areas. A landline is a fixed line or a wire line such as, a metal wire or fiber optic cable. A landline is also used to describe a linking amongst two or more points that are comprised of a dedicated physical cable. Landlines work by transmitting voice and data signals through copper wire through electric pulses which means landline will still work even if there was a black out or satellite intervention. A pager is a wireless telecommunications device that receives and displays numeric or text messages, or receives and announces voice messages (Anonymous, 2014). Pagers function as a part of a paging system which contains one or more fixed transmitters. Businesses frequently assimilate paging systems with their Voice-mail and PBX systems, assigning pagers to telephone extensions, and they set-up web portals to incorporate pagers into other parts of their enterprise. Text messaging has change the way...

Voice vs Data

...1. When it comes to cell phones I found that the major mobile phone carriers use data networks. Some of the most common technologies used are HSDPA, HSUPA, EDGE, HSPA and UMTS. These are all 3G technologies and provide some of the fastest 3G speeds. 2. Landlines also use data networks. Once the sounds leave your home or business on the telephone lines it will go to the Telco’s switch in the area or to a digital concentrator box. Here your voice is digitized into 8,000 samples per second and 8-bit resolution before being transmitted onto its destination. 3. SMS/Text Messaging uses data networks also. This would seem natural since most cell phones use data networks and SMS/Text Messages are sent from cell phones. The way it works is because cell phones are always sending and receiving information, even when they are not in use. This is so the phone is constantly telling towers where it is so when a message is sent to a particular number the message can find its intended recipient. 4. Not surprisingly, Fax Machines use a data network to send information. This is done by digitizing an image. I say image because even if it is a text document it is still taking a picture of the document and transmitting it to the recipient. It is divided into a grid of dots and each dot would either be “on” or “off” using a 1 or 0. 5. Pagers use a data network also. Pagers are used to send messages and are sent from either a phone line or through email. There is not the option to send any...

Voice Morpher

...VOICE MORPHER The Design Principles Used: The Voice Morpher has been designed by taking the synthesizer implemented in previous assighnment as the starting point . The term ‘voice morphing’ refers to the process of modifying a speaker’s (source)speech to sound as if it were spoken by a different (target) speaker. An attempt has been made to alter the means and variances of each of the 12 controlling parameters (and overall timing) in such a way as to match those of a target speaker.A separate object pd compute is included to calculate the Mean and Variance of the pfs file and supplied to the morpher code. The morpher should takes three inputs: (i) the pfs file for the source speaker, (ii) the statistics file for the source speaker and (iii) the statistics file for the target speaker. It should then transform the input pfs (in real-time) and output the converted speech. The Evaluation Procedures Employed : The Voice Morpher is tested using the test samples ’sentences_male.pfs’ and ‘sentences_female.pfs’ .This is passed as input to the Vocoder Analyser for the source speaker to transform the input pfs using some mathematical formula .The converted speech is then output by passing it through the vocoder synthesiser.(using the source and target means and variances as constants).It is to be noted that the pitch of a female speaker would be close to twice that of the male speaker. i.e., if the constant is 0.2, then the morphed signal will be closer in pitch to the source......

Facial and Voice Attractiveness

...Introduction Voice is produced by breath, vibrating the vocal folds in the larynx. It is one of the most important components of a person’s identity. Every person has different voice quality. As defined by Trask(1996), voice quality is the characteristic auditory coloring of an individual's voice, derived from a variety of laryngeal and supra laryngeal features and running continuously through the individual's speech. The natural and distinctive tone of speech sounds produced by a particular person yields a particular voice. Various studies said that voice gives clues to physical characteristics and listeners might be better at relating the two traits than they think they are. A 2002 study showed that people are able to match a speaker’s voice with a photograph over 75 percent of the time and that those people with symmetrical traits (a sign of genetic fitness) were rated as having more attractive voices. Research has also shown that listeners can detect people’s socioeconomic status, personality, and emotional/mental state from their voice, and that they can estimate age, height, and weight about as accurately from voice clips as they can from photographs. Chris Brooke and Markus Koppensteiner (2015) studied on The sound of beauty: Men can tell if a woman is attractive simply by listening to her voice. Researchers photographed the faces and recorded the voices of 42 women with an average age of 24. They found out that those who are rated highly for looks often...

The Voice

...Valeria Arón The Voice The Voice is a very private poem, written when the author was feeling very lonely because of his wife´s death. His desperation over her death is evident in this poem, through every line he is begging her to return. As we said before he is tormenting himself, he misses his wife. “How you call to me, call to me”, the echoing on those phrases give us a feeling that he is crying for help, in order to be together again, to join her. The author uses the technique of repeating the same phrase several times in order to make it more painful. Therefore we can see how lonely he feels. We can say that he is completely alone because he refers to she as “the one who was all to me”, the author is telling us that she was everything for him. It could be due to Hardy´s treatment towards his wife during the last months of their marriage. Maybe he regrets of something or his behavior towards her. He is filled with guilt inside him, now he implores Emma to appear to him. The author even takes a risks as describes the exactly way in which he would like so her “Let me view you then, standing as when I drew near to the town”. As a conclusion of the first verse we can say that the author is trying to express how his wife changed. He hears her saying that she has changed from who she was before, “you are not as you were “, “when you had changed” the second quote is even more clear because he specific uses the word itself. The author writes the poem using...

Sound Voice

...THE SOUND VOICE © Shelagh Davies, M.Sc, S-LP(C)  SOUND ADVICE Your guide to a strong, clear, easy voice 1. KEEP THE LARYNX HYDRATED To vibrate easily and resist injury, the vocal folds need to be kept moist, both internally and externally. Dry air, mouth breathing, smoking and certain drying medications all dry the vocal folds externally, while drinking too much caffeine or alcohol and not drinking enough water dries them internally. To make sure your vocal folds are well hydrated: DRINK: 8 to 10 glasses/day of non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic liquids. Drink more in hot weather and if you are exercising or using your voice a lot. Drink water: it’s the easiest and it’s what your system needs. How can you tell if you are drinking enough water? Follow the dieticians’ advice to “pee pale”. Check your urine – if it is pale yellow, you are well hydrated; if it is dark yellow and concentrated, reach for the water bottle. 8 - 10 cups daily STEAM: Breathing humidified air rehydrates the vocal folds from the outside. It can be useful if: • you have an upper respiratory infection • your throat feels tired or sore • you have been doing a lot of talking or singing. (We automatically breathe through the mouth and that dries out the vocal folds.) • you are in a dry environment, like an airplane or Saskatchewan. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes, twice a day. • Take a hot shower or bath • Put your face over a bowl of hot water and drape a towel over your head (you get a facial at...
