Almanac: The “Father of Streamlining”

Almanac: The “Father of Streamlining”

And now a page from our “Sunday Morning” Almanac: November 5, 1893, 124 years ago today – Day One for the man called “The Father of Streamlining.”

For that was the day Raymond Loewy was born in Paris.

An award-winning model airplane designer while still a boy, Loewy moved to the United States after World War I, and went to work.

He transformed the railroad locomotive and the Greyhound bus. He designed modern sewing machines and popcorn machines … and filled his home with his own creations.

In this excerpt from his new memoir, “What Is It All But Luminous: Notes From an Underground Man” (Knopf), singer Art Garfunkel writes of his early fascination with radio, rock ‘n’ roll, and a fellow classmate named Paul Simon .

KNOPF
On Saturday mornings, in 1953, in Keds sneakers, white on white, I took my basketball to P.S. 164. We played half-court ball, three on three. Or else I listened to Martin Block’s Make-Believe Ballroom on the radio. I loved to chart the top thirty songs. It was the numbers that got me. I kept meticulous lists – when a new singer like Tony Bennett came onto the charts with “Rags to Riches.” I watched the record jump from, say, # 23 to # 14 in a week. The mathematics of the jumps went to my sense of fun. I was commercially aware through the Hit Parade, as well as involved in the music. Johnny Ray’s “Cry,” the Crewcuts’ “Sha-boom,” Roy Hamilton ballads, “Unchained Melody” reached me. Soon the Everly Brothers would take me for The Big Ride.

As I entered Parsons Junior High where the tough kids are, Paul Simon became my one and only friend. We saw each other’s uniqueness. We smoked our first cigarettes. We have retreated from all other kids. And we laughed. I opened my school desk one day in 1954 and saw a note from Ira Green to a friend: “Listen to the radio tonight, I have a dedication to you.” I was aware that Alan Freed had taken this subversive music from Cleveland to New York City. He read dedications from teenage lovers before playing “Earth Angel,” “Sincerely.” When he played Little Richard’s “Long Tall Sally,” he left the studio mic open enough to hear him pounding a stack of telephone books to the backbeat. This was no Martin Block.

Maybe I was in the land of payola, of “back alley enterprise” and pill-head disc jockeying, but what I was was that Alan Freed loved us kids to dance, romance, and fall in love, and the music would send us. It sent me for life. It was rhythm and blues. It was black. It was from New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia. It was dirty music (read sexual). One night Alan Freed called it “rock ‘n’ roll.” Hip was born for me. Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis. Bobby Freeman asked, “Do you want dance, squeeze and hug me all through the night?” and you knew she did.

I was captured. So was Paul. We followed WINS radio. Paul bought a guitar. We used my father’s wire recorder, then Paul’s Webcor tape machine. Holding rehearsals in our basements, we were little perfectionists. We put sound on sound (stacking two layers of our singing). With the courage to listen and cringe about how not right it was yet, we are going to record.

We were guitar-based little rockers. Paul had the guitar. We wrote streamlined harmonies whose intervals were thirds, as I learned it from the Andrews Sisters to Don and Phil and floated it over Paul’s chugging hammering-on-guitar technique. It was bluesy, it was rockabilly, it was rock ‘n’ roll. We took “woo-bop-a-loo-chi-ba” from Gene Vincent’s “Be-bop-a-lula.” We stole Buddy Holly’s country flavor (“Oh Boy”), the Everlys’ harmony (“Wake Up Little Susie”). Paul took Elvis’s everything (“Mystery Train”). As Paul drove the rhythm, I brought us into a vocal blend. We were the closest of chums, making out with our girls across the basement floor. We showed each other our versions of masturbation (mine used a hand). “The Girl for Me” was the first song we wrote – innocent, a pathetic “Earth Angel.” In junior high we added Stu Kutcher and Angel and Ida Pellagrini.

All the while, I did a lot of homework, the shy kid’s retreat. My geometry page was a model of perfection. Anything worth doing is worth doing extraordinarily well – why not best in the world?

Functional Neurology Through Applied Kinesiology to Help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Functional Neurology Through Applied Kinesiology to Help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is actually a program to evaluate three major components of any disease, condition, or disease. Applied Kinesiology has a basis in evaluating and supporting structural, chemical, and emotional health aspects. Get more information about neurotherapy

 

Created in 1964 by Dr. George Goodheart, Applied Kinesiology has found its way to many different health offices. Medical doctors, dentists, chiropractors, nutritionists, and in some cases veterinarians have identified many Applied Kinesiology tools and approaches to their individual advantage.

Applied Kinesiology, together with proper physical examination, medical history, laboratory tests, as well as other diagnostic procedures, enable healthcare providers to see further with patient presentations through manual muscle testing at work. The patient’s cholonological test, when performed with specificity and understanding of human anatomy and physiology, offers doctors treating the biofeedback version because the patient’s muscle function is altered because many challenges, corrections, and muscle tests are performed.

Although manual muscle testing is performed when using Applied Kinesiology, practitioners simply do not evaluate the strength that muscles can make, but instead evaluate how neural methods control muscle function. Applied Kinesiology is often called “Functional Neurology” because of this.

The nervous system is usually a complex network of neurons and axons that are the main signaling methods in our bodies. Using our neural program, we manage muscle activity with our skeletal muscle tissue and physical cramps, which in turn control our way of walking, standing, throwing balls, and even how our heartbeats are, and how our bowels function. The nervous system also gives insight to the world about us. The sensory nerve interprets vision, sound, touch, smell, and taste. When one of these nerves develops into stress, or dysfunctional then the symptoms have the possibility to be presented. Applied Kinesiology supplies further roads for healthcare providers to evaluate some of the nerves in the body, and rapid response to certain stimuli.

By using nervous techniques and manual muscle testing along with patient clinical presentation, Applied Kinesiologist is able to evaluate certain structural, chemical, and emotional elements against emerging symptoms.

For example, patients present with carpal tunnel syndrome will experience pain, weakness, numbness, tingling and other equivalent symptoms in the hands and forearms due to median nerve irritation. Carpal tunnel syndrome is often the result of trauma, but can occur in the absence of an identified cause. The standard orthopedic test used to diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome attempts to re-create numbness, pain, weakness, and so on by maneuvering the wrist in various positions. Sometimes an x-ray will be taken, or an electrical test with a median nerve will be done through an EMG needle to assess the nerve damage. Furthermore for the test, an Applied Kinesiologist can evaluate other things that contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome. From a nutritional standpoint, vitamin B6 deficiency has been shown to mimic symptoms of the exact same carpal tunnel syndrome. Although surgery, chiropractic manipulation, acupuncture, or other structural approaches may provide short-term relief with symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, they usually have no effect on nutritional deficiencies that may be present. B6 deficiency in association with carpal tunnel syndrome is usually accompanied by discomfort of the joints on the elbows, legs, and knees with leg swelling. For some individuals, carpal tunnel syndrome is clearly a result of further nerve entrapment of the wrist. The nerve runs in the brain, down the spinal cord, out of the spinal cord, and through the extremities as peripheral nerves. The irradiated median nerve in carpal tunnel syndrome is often affected in any neurological pathway element. Nerve irritation in the neck, shoulders, elbows or wrists can all contribute to the symptoms that appear. An educated practitioner in Applied Kinesiology may be in a position to assess patients, determine aspects that contribute to emerging symptoms, and use potential patients to provide biofeedback to adapt different treatment protocols to patient needs.

Militants storm security compound in Yemen in deadly attack

Militants storm security compound in Yemen in deadly attack

SANAA, Yemen — Masked militants set off a large car bomb outside a security headquarters in Yemen’s southern port city of Aden early Sunday killing at least five soldiers before storming the compound, officials said.

Speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters, the security officials said the militants placed snipers on the roof and gunned down most of the security forces inside. The officials gave conflicting accounts of what happened next inside the building. They initially said that the militants had taken an unknown number of people hostage. Later they said that they opened cell gates and released prisoners.

Witnesses said at least four militant snipers could be seen on the roof of the compound. They also described mayhem as dead bodies littering the compound’s front courtyard couldn’t be retrieved because of the continuous sniper fire. Shallal al-Shayae, the security chief, was not inside the compound at the time of the attack, the officials said.

In an online statement, the local affiliate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack, saying they killed 50 soldiers and identified the bomber as Abu Othman al-Hadrami.

A Saudi-led coalition meanwhile launched a wave of airstrikes — starting overnight and continuing until noon the next day — on the rebel-held capital, Sanaa, apparently in response to a ballistic missile fired by the rebels toward an international airport on the outskirts of Riyadh, the Saudi capital. Saudi Arabia said it shot down the missile before it hit its target, with fragments landing in an uninhabited area north of the capital.

U.S. President Donald Trump was quick to blame Iran. “A shot was just taken by Iran, in my opinion, at Saudi Arabia. And our system knocked it down,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the Patriot missile batteries Saudi Arabia purchased from the U.S.

Iran’s Defense Minister Gen. Amir Hatami has denied his country was involved in the incident. “Does anyone ask the United States what are you giving to Saudi Arabia?” he was quoted by the semi-official ISNA news agency as saying.

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard Chief, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, also said that Iran can’t transfer rockets to Yemen and stressed that the missiles were made there. He described Mr. Trump’s comments as “lies.”

Yemen is embroiled in a war between Iran-backed Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, and the internationally recognized government, which is allied with a Saudi-led military coalition. The government has been based in Saudi Arabia since the Houthis overran the capital Sanaa in 2014. Government forces ostensibly control Aden, but the city remains volatile.

The Houthis said in a statement that the missile was launched in response to bombings that have killed civilians. The Houthis have fired a number of missiles across the border in recent years, but this appeared to be the deepest strike yet within Saudi territory.

Riyadh is around 620 miles north of the border with Yemen.

Saudi-led airstrikes in Yemen have killed and wounded thousands of civilians, hitting houses, busy markets, hospitals and schools in what rights groups have said amounts to war crimes. Houthi artillery has also killed a large numbers of civilians. The war has claimed more than 10,000 lives and driven the Arab world’s poorest country to the brink of famine.

Order of Prohibited Orders and Orders of Certain Issues

Order of Prohibited Orders and Orders of Certain Issues

Order Orders are Prohibited
The banned steps command is used to stop your child’s parents from taking a specific action, or Prohibit the Steps until such action is taken. This is an enforceable command to be given by a British court. It is most commonly used to stop the following actions:

 

· In order for the child to have no contact with someone who will have a bad influence on it. This is usually used if parents do not trust friends from other parents and expect their child to be around them.
· To prevent other parents from moving abroad and bringing their children. Or moving a long distance that can make contact with both parents is very difficult.
· To prevent parents from changing the child’s surname by a name they disagree with.
Orders of Specific Problems

Certain Issues Orders are no different than the banned steps order. But it creates rules to be followed by parents and not rules that should not be broken. You should remember that this order is less common because it is only used when there is disagreement. This command should not be used when parents approve of this issue. The most common things involved in a particular Order of the Problem are:

· Which school should the child attend?
• When, where and when the child should be on vacation.
· Are children allowed to move permanently abroad.
· If the child has to receive certain medical treatment or not.
· If the child’s name can be changed.
Court Judicial Considerations

Courts will always consider the welfare of children above all else when they consider giving orders or not. If the child’s welfare will not be fixed according to the order, even if that’s what the parents want, then the order will not be given. This coincides with the “no order” part of the child. It states that a child will benefit from not having to do with court hassles and court orders.

Most of the time, if an order would prevent the child from connecting with their parents, or family members close to them (such as grandparents) then the order would be rejected by the court. The welfare of a child will always be higher if they have contact with more parenting figures.

Building up your brand id

Building up your brand id

The key to creative and effective branding of any program, product, service or institution is finding the right positioning – to drive the advertising and other marketing tools. It does not have to be complicated or weird. In fact, if it’s good and effective, it’s simple and will follow this “Rule of consumers” – “You’re what you appear to be.” This position, or ‘brand’ is really an identity – a way people can sort through all the confusing information and summarize what they think about something.
What do you get with a brand identity?

 

Over the last 25 years we have come to learn that the development of brand identity is much more than a mere benchmark denoting successful arrival in brand identity business, or its evolution and growth. A highly competitive business environment in today’s highly competitive business environment.

Just to lay some “groundwork”, here are the reasons why you can have a strategically important effect on your bottom line.

o It’s easy to know who you are, which means:

o It’s easy to know what you do. (Helps develop goals)

o It’s easy to know how to do it. (Helps with implementation)

o Less energy is expended overall. (Creates efficiency in communications)

o Team building occurs naturally when staff can identify with common symbols, common language and therefore common goals. (Sports uniforms are a good example.) Every player feels like a part of the group.)

o You can match your image for your business needs or view of his business. (A simple matter of “give what they want.”)

o With a clearly defined identity you communicate more efficiently with your customers, and they remember you more easily. (Memorability is easier when everybody is clear you are are.)

o Enhancements in the overall quality of your product or service. (Consistency always counts.)

o Benefits and unique qualities of your business are communicated more clearly to your clients thereby increasing sales. (Marketing tool)

o Helps set identifiable standards of quality in your product or service. Helps with a sense of reliability by developing a “brand identity.” (Brand names are trusted.)

So, what is a corporate brand anyway?

As we begin the process of making recommendations for developing a corporate branding identity let’s talk about what we really mean by “brand.” What is it, why does it work, how does it work and who makes it work.

Recommendations Have New Car Tire

Recommendations Have New Car Tire

Everyone who owns a car will be faced with one day using the task of owning a new car tire. Ban usually does not last forever and for those who allow them to be too tired you are not only breaking the law, but also pose a serious security hazard for yourself and others. Your car tires will usually be checked when it is really time to register the car; if they are a little worn out, but pass the inspection they may want to replace before the next checkup within twelve months. How do you inform if a car tire is used? Get more details about Ban
Firstly there will not be many footprints, or your tread components can be worn. The tread is probably part of the tire that touches the road surface. If the tire wear is not going to be able to grip the road sufficiently. This can lead to slipping, aqua-planing in wet situations and poor braking. Secondly, there may be a danger to the wall in the tire. Bulges, split and put on that expose the inner surface of the tire all imply that new tires are needed quickly.

 

If you get a new car tire, you usually get the exact same type that you already have in the car, especially for those who buy a new car. These tires will be installed in the factory and are generally excellent tires for general use. But every time you invest in a used car, it can be achieved that the tire factory is replaced for a long time and you can not be sure that the equivalent has been purchased. They can be tire price range or tire performance is higher.

It is wise to take advice on the tires because they can be educated to know which tires are the best of value and reliability. All tires look the same as a beginner, so whenever you visit a new tire and notice that there are definitely much cheaper than others, you may be tempted to get a cheaper one.

However, you should think more about safety and reliability when it comes to car tires. In addition, the cheaper tires will go faster and after that you need to earn more, so in the long run they will not be much. More expensive tires are manufactured from inventory that last longer than cheaper ones.

You should also consider the climatic conditions when buying new car tires. If you live in an area where snow is normal in winter, or where ice forms on the road regularly, then you really should consider getting a special winter tire. It has a much deeper surface and a larger surface that helps tires grip the road in such situations and reduces the chances of slipping and sliding.

Tires are grouped into 3 main categories; speed rating, size and load index. This high performance tire gives more speed, but usually does not grip the road. The load index tells you how much weight a tire can help, although its size refers to the diameter and width of the tire. In addition, it is necessary to calculate the ratio 1 against the other.

Why Should Remove Mold

Why Should Remove Mold

If you have found a black mold in your home or office, the first step you need to take is to repair the mushrooms in Roswell. Depending on the level of yeast infestation, not only your health, but the structural integrity of the building may be risky. Whenever you find black prints in your home or workplace, it’s important to take action to remove them completely.

Damage to the Building Structure Why Should Remove Mold

 

Black prints can be found in different areas of your home or office. Some of these areas are places you can not even reach. Black prints, or any type of prints, are made from water in places that are not hers. Molds can also be caused by rotting foods. Most of the mushrooms grow on hot surfaces and lurk in other areas of your home. Black mold likes to hide in air conditioners, carpets, structural beams, and load bearing walls. If the fungus enters the porous surface, it can reduce the area until nothing remains. Despite its insignificant appearance, black mold can cause serious structural problems for your home or office. Structural problems can be very difficult to repair once they reach a point of no return.

It’s Dangerous to Your Health Why Should Remove Mold

If black mold is ingested or inhaled, it can cause various symptoms that are unpleasant and even harmful to humans and animals. The most common symptoms that are created from black fungus are found in the respiratory region. Chronic cough, wheezing, sneezing, eye irritation are common symptoms and signs. Chronic fatigue and persistent headaches are a common symptom of black fungal poisoning. The displacement of mold in Roswell can be very important for your health.
