Anatomy of the Voice 1.0 APK
ShiningBrand
In compiling basic anatomical information on the voice, thefirstquestion that arises is what to include. In this book Ihaveidentified five basic systems that are responsible forvocalproduction: The first, and in many ways the most basic part ofthevoice, is the respiratory system. Although sound is produced inthelarynx, this would not be possible without the flow of air fromthelungs. This airflow provides a necessary power source to setthevocal cords into motion to produce sound. In Chapter One we’lllookat the anatomy of breathing. Chapter Two examines thesecondsystem, the larynx, which is the most immediate physicalstructurepertaining to the voice. Its role in vocal production anditshighly specialized functions are so important that it merits akeyplace in a basic anatomical reference on the voice. Thelarynxforms the housing for the vocal folds that vibrate to makesound,bringing them together when we want to speak or sing, andpullingthem apart when we breathe normally. Though the intricatedesign ofthe larynx does not lend itself to easy comprehension ofitsfunction, when we break down its component parts and look atthemin turn, it begins to make sense. The larynx itself issuspendedwithin a network of muscles—sometimes called the extrinsicmusclesof the larynx—that move the structure when we swallow andhelp itto function. These constitute the third system we willexamine.Although the role of these muscles in swallowing iswellunderstood, their role in vocalization has beenlargelymisunderstood and underestimated. We’ll look at the functionofthese muscles in Chapter Three. The fourth basic system isthevocal tract, which is made up mainly of the pharynx butalsoincludes the oral cavity and the position of the larynx. It isherethat we break up the sounds coming from the larynx into speech.Itis also here that the sound from the vibrating vocal foldsisaugmented. Because the vocal tract is not fixed in shape but canbealtered by how we use the different structures such as themouth,tongue, and palate, it forms a crucial part of vocaltraining.We’ll look at these elements in detail in Chapter Four.Because theface also occupies a practical role in vocal training, Ihaveincluded a fifth chapter describing the muscles of the face astheyrelate to vocal placement. Here I have also included the jaw,sinceit naturally belongs in this section. In the final chapter wewilllook at the function and evolution of the larynx in particular,andthe voice in general. Because the larynx is so complex, itisnearly impossible to appreciate why it is the way it iswithouthaving some sense of how it evolved, which in turn helps tomakesome of its features more understandable.
Eye Contact Secrets 1.0 APK
ShiningBrand
Have you ever said “I want to be able to look him in the eyesandtell him . . .”? Implicit in this phrase is the idea that wecannottell a lie when we are looking someone in the eyes; whateverourmouths say, we believe that our eyes will tell the truth. Whatisit about the eyes and the gaze that holds such power for us? Whydothey reveal such depth about our inner world? And what is itaboutdirect eye contact that we find so meaningful—and sopotentiallyterrifying? In this book, we are going to go on ajourney into arich, captivating, and sometimes mysterious topic. Wewill talkwith a diverse, merry, and cantankerous crew of people whohavethought a lot about this subject, including scientists,poets,spiritual teachers, sales professionals, a legendary sportscoach,fighting champions, professional public speakers,psychologists,dating experts, a pickup artist, and even a Playboycenterfoldincluded for good measure. They will all help us unlockthe mysteryof our eyes and of eye contact. But make no mistake: theaim ofthis book is neither theoretical nor poetic. The ultimate aimofthis book is to help us lead better lives—to get more of whatwewant from life—by mastering the power of eye contact. If youcanimagine an area of life that is important to you and thatinvolvesrelating to other humans face to face, then eye contact isacrucial part of it. Yet it is possible to botch eye contact. Itcanbe done very, very poorly. Or not at all. It can be done in awaythat repels rather than attracts. Eye contact can go wrong inmanyways. There is a good chance you are making some of thesemistakesright now, without knowing it. In fact, some of yoursocialinteractions may not be going as well as you’d hoped becauseof it.I know this, because I used to be awful at eye contact. Notjustawful, but scared and terrified of it. That was before Ilearnedthe secrets presented in this book. The good news is thatit’s notthat hard to become really good at eye contact. People nowtell meall the time that they feel safe, comfortable,appreciated,respected, understood—and even sometimes energized—whenmet by mygaze. I wasn’t born this way. (Actually, maybe I was—allbabies arenatural eye contact pros, as we’ll soon see. But we losethisfacility quickly as self-consciousness develops.) I learned howtohave this quality of eye contact. I learned all of this overyears.But I’ve put all of what I’ve learned over these yearsofexperience, observation, and research into this book. Now youcanlearn in a matter of weeks what took me years to master. Iknowbecause I’ve seen friends, family members, and readerstransformedby the lessons and examples contained herein. Whilethere is alively trade in books on body language—and many of them,includingsome cited here, are excellent—there has never been a bookthatdives in depth and exclusively into the social and businessaspectsof this most important, intriguing, spiritually rich,andscientifically studied aspect of body language: eye contact.Never,until now. You hold in your hands a book with the power tochangeyour life dramatically within a short period of time. Thisbook isyour concise guide to harnessing the potent force of eyecontactfor success in your work and personal relationships. Itteaches youhow to stop being “eye shy” and start being “eye bold.”It teachesyou how to build and maintain powerful eye contact in allyourrelationships and interactions. Master this art with the helpofthis book, and you will instantly begin to notice three things:Youwill start meeting more people right away. Your connectionswiththe people you already know will deepen. You will feel, look,andact more confident.

Applied Mathematics Beginners 1.0 APK
ShiningBrand
The modern world of mathematics is divided into differentcategoriesand if you are so lucky as to meet real‐lifemathematicians andengage them in a conversation, they willtypically tell you thatthey are either mathematicians or appliedmathematicians. You haveprobably heard of mathematics, but what isapplied mathematics? Aquick look on the Internet will give youconflicting definitions. Itwill also reveal that appliedmathematics has found its place inmodern academia. As such it isrecognized by internationalscientific societies, journals, and theusual conferences. What isso special about applied mathematics?How is it different frommathematics, or any other scientificdiscipline? Mathematics Let usstart with mathematics itself.Whereas philosophers still ponder thebest definition, mostscientists and mathematicians agree thatmodern mathematics is anintellectual discipline whose aim is tostudy idealized objects andtheir relationships, based on formallogic. Mathematics standsapart from scientific disciplines becauseit is not restricted byreality. It proceeds solely through logicand is only restricted byour imagination. Indeed, once structuresand operations have beendefined in a formal setting, thepossibilities are endless. You canthink of it as a game with veryprecise rules. Once the rules arelaid out, the game of proving ordisproving a statement proceeds.For example, mathematicians haveenjoyed numbers for millennia.Take, for instance, the naturalnumbers (0,1,2, …) and the familiarmultiplication operation (×). Ifwe take two numbers p and qtogether, we obtain a third one as n = p× q. A simple question isthen to do the reverse operation: given anumber n can we find twonumbers p and q such that n = p × q? Thesimple answer is: ofcourse! Take p = 1 and q = n. If this is theonly possible way thata natural number n larger than 1 can bewritten as a product of twonumbers, then n is called a primenumber. Mathematicians love primenumbers and their wonderful, andoftentimes, surprising properties.We can now try to prove ordisprove statements about these numbers.Let us start with simpleones. We can prove that there exist primenumbers by showing thatthe natural numbers 2, 3, and 5 have allthe required properties tobe prime numbers. We can disprove thenaive statement that all oddnumbers are prime by showing that 9 =3 × 3. A more interestingstatement is that there are infinitelymany prime numbers. This wasfirst investigated c.300 BC by Euclidwho showed that new largerprime numbers can always be constructedfrom the list of all knownprime numbers up to a certain value. Aswe construct new primenumbers the list of prime numbers increasesindefinitely. Primenumbers have beautiful properties and play acentral role in numbertheory and pure mathematics. Mathematiciansare still trying toestablish simple relationships between them.For instance, mostmathematicians believe there are infinitely manypairs of primenumbers that differ by 2, the so‐called twin‐primeconjecture (aconjecture is a statement believed to be true butstillunconfirmed). For example, (5,7), (11,13), and(18369287,18369289)are all pairs of primes separated by 2, andmany more such pairs areknown. The burning question is: are thereinfinitely many suchpairs? Mathematicians do believe that it isthe case butdemonstrating this seemingly simple property is sodifficult that ithas not yet been proved or disproved. However, atthe time ofwriting, a recent breakthrough has taken place. It wasestablishedthat there exist infinitely many pairs of prime numbersthat differby 246. This result shook the mathematical communityand the subjectis now a hot topic of modern mathematics. Throughcenturies offormalization and generalization, mathematics hasevolved into aunified field with clear rules.

Introvert Secret Lives 1.0 APK

I closed my eyes and imagined a horse who played with her friendsina sunny meadow. Like many introverted children, my inner worldwasvivid and alive. The made-up story seemed almost as real astheactual world around me of toys and parents and pets. The horseandher friends were having a race to see who was the fastest.Theydashed through fields of flowers and jumped over aglisteningcreek, when, all of the sudden, one of them started toflap hertiny, hidden wings and fly … Suddenly, my dad interruptedmythoughts. “You have to say your story out loud,” he said,noddingto the microphone. “So I can record it.” I looked atthemicrophone, then back at my dad, but I didn’t know how torespond.The things inside me had to be spoken? How could merewordsdescribe the striking images I saw in my mind—and how theymade mefeel? Sensing my hesitancy, my dad prompted again. “Just saywhatyou’re thinking,” he said, as if that were the easiest thing intheworld. But I couldn’t. I continued to stare at my dad insilence.The secret world inside me would not come out. My dadgrewimpatient, probably thinking his only daughter was beingstubborn,uncreative. The truth was I had no idea how to translatemy innerexperience into words. Somehow, I thought that with myfather’ssupreme intelligence, he would just know what I meant tosay. Buthe couldn’t read my thoughts. And the microphone attachedto theprimitive eighties tape recorder couldn’t hear them.Eventually, hegave up and put everything away. This would not bethe last time inmy life that my silence confused and frustratedsomeone. I wouldcarry that feeling of disconnect between my innerworld and theouter one with me for much of my life. If you’re anintrovert likeme, you may have secrets inside you, too. You havethoughts thatyou don’t have the words to express and big ideas thatno one elsesees. Maybe your secret is you feel lonely even whenyou’resurrounded by other people. Perhaps you’re doing certainthings andacting a certain way only because you think you’resupposed to.Maybe your heart longs for just one person to see thereal you—andto know what’s really going on inside your head. Thisis a bookabout secrets. It’s about seeing what’s really going onwithintroverts. It’s about finally feeling understood. Turns outI’mnot just an introvert but also a highly sensitive person (butI’llleave that topic for another time). After reading dozens ofbooksabout introversion, I turned to the Internet. I joinedFacebookgroups for introverts and poured over blogs. My friends gotsick ofme constantly talking about introversion: “Did you know it’sanintrovert thing to need time to think before responding?” I’dsay,or, “I can’t go out tonight, it’s introvert time.” I couldn’tshutup about being an introvert. It was like I had been readingthewrong script my entire life, trying to play the role of thepersonI thought I should be—not the person I truly was. Don’t getmewrong. Learning about my introversion didn’t fix all myproblems.It would take several years of hard, inner work—alongwithconsciously deciding to make real changes in my life—beforethingsgot better. But for me, embracing my introversion—andstoppingmyself from trying to pretend to be an extrovert—was thefirststep. As I learned more about introversion, I became moreconfidentin who I was. I started accepting my need for alone time.I saw myquiet, reflective nature as a strength, not a liability. Ialsostarted working on my social skills, seeing them assimplythat—skills I could improve and use to my advantage. Butmostimportant, for the first time in my life, I started toactuallylike myself. I was no longer an other. I was somethingelse: anintrovert.

Unless you’ve been stranded on a desert island for the pastfiftyyears, you’ve noticed that the world has changed.Understandingpeople has always been one of life’s biggestchallenges, but thesocial changes and technological explosion ofrecent decades havemade it even more difficult. Today, many of usdon’t enjoy closebonds or daily contact even with the mostimportant people in ourlives. We’re out of touch and out ofpractice. Unless you practicethe skills you’ll learn in this book,you won’t retain them. Butthat’s difficult today because we live ina global society. We’rein contact with people across town, acrossthe country, or even onthe other side of the world. But our contactusually isn’tpersonal. The same technological advances that allowus suchextraordinary access to others have exacted a toll—they havemadeface-to-face conversation relatively rare. Why meet with aclientin person if you can phone him? Why have an actualconversationwith Mom if you can leave a message on her answeringmachine? Whyphone a friend if you can send an e-mail or an instantmessage? Aslong as the message gets through, what’s the difference?Most of ushave even phoned someone, hoping to leave a message, onlyto bedisappointed when she’s actually there to answer the call.Some ofus even bow out altogether, relying on our assistants,kids,spouses, or friends to do our communicating for us. Or wesettleinto cyberspace, meeting, doing business, sometimes evenbecomingengaged—all on the basis of the sterile, electronicallygeneratedword, without the benefit of seeing someone or eventalking to him.All forms of communication are not equal. If I wantto ask a favorof my colleague Alan, I have several choices. I canwalk down thehall and speak with him in person; in that case, I’llbe able togauge his response accurately. Maybe he’ll gladly sayyes. Thenagain, maybe he’ll say yes while wincing. Or perhaps he’llsay no,but will clearly show his reservations. There’s an almostinfinitenumber of reactions I might see if I’m there in the roomwith him.Now, if I phone Alan instead, I’ll be able to sense someof hisfeelings from his voice—but I may miss the more subtleundertonesand I won’t get any visual cues. If we e-mail eachother,effectively squelching almost all human contact, I’ll getjust thefacts. And what if I simply send someone else to ask?Makingmatters worse, most of us purposely avoid meaningfulconversationwith all but our closest friends and family. When we dogettogether, we may be more comfortable saying what is expectedor“politically correct” than what we really believe.Self-revelationcomes hard to most people; those who confess theirinnermostsecrets on afternoon talk shows are the exception, not therule.The reasons we don’t like to expose ourselves could fill abook,but undoubtedly the edgy, distrustful tenor of urban life isamongthem. From childhood on, those of us who live in or near bigcitiesare urged to be wary of strangers; the concept isreinforcednightly on the local news. We urbanites often return froma visitto a small town marveling at how we were treated. Instead oftheaverted gazes we’ve grown accustomed to, we’re met with afriendly“Hello, how are you?” from people who really seem to meanit! Thatlevel of spontaneous, trusting communication is hard tocome by inthe cities where most Americans live. Most of us did notgrow up ina community where our high school classmates became ourdentists,our barbers, and our children’s schoolteachers. Sure, wehavefriends and families, but the majority of people we see eachdayare strangers and therefore suspect. Because we fear them, weoftenavoid contact, and as a result we don’t use our social skillsasoften as we could. Our people-reading muscles have atrophiedfromlack of exercise.
