Musicians Earplugs To Protect Your Ears}

Submitted by: Nasir DZ

Musicians Earplugs is a protective device for human ears to loud noises and music. The human ear is a complicated and delicate organ. Although it helps the body to maintain balance, its main job is to detect and amplify the sounds. Unfortunately, loud noises in the environment can damage the sensitive structures of the ear, which can cause temporary or even permanent hearing loss.

The function of the ea

Your ear works by detecting sound waves in the environment and translating them into signals the brain can interpret. The sound waves through the outer ear canal to the eardrum, making it vibrate. The vibrations of the eardrum move three fossils of the middle ear, which amplify and send them to a shell structure called the cochlea. It is a hollow structure with channels full of liquid. The cochlea is filled with a special fluid under an elastic membrane called the membrane. The sound vibrations in the middle ear make the ripples in the cochlear fluid, which causes the ripple. The sensory cells in the upper part of the movement with the same, create electrical signals that are detected by the auditory nerve to the brain.

Cause of hearing loss

The most common cause of hearing loss is age, closely followed by internal damage due to exposure to loud noises. Sudden noises, such as an explosion, a shot or a firecracker can cause immediate hearing loss, which can be temporary or permanent. In addition, exposure to moderately loud noises such as lawn mowers, power tools or loud music can cause cumulative and prolonged progressive hearing loss.

Adverse noise

Prolonged exposure to loud noises slowly damages the sensory hair cells – sound receptors and posture – lining of the ear. The cells send information to the brain through the cochlear nerve. Once damaged, these cells do not regenerate. The loud noises can also damage the cochlear nerve and stop sending auditory signals to the brain. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), the sound of 75 dB or less are generally considered safe, even with long-term exposure. However, prolonged exposure to 85 decibels or more may cause damage to the ears.

To put this in perspective, the sound of a normal conversation is about 60 decibels, the heavy traffic is about 85 decibels, its cutter is about 90 decibels and rockets, shows and rock concerts are from 110 to 150 decibels.

Symptoms or Side Effects

If you have to raise your voice to be heard, you cannot hear someone two feet from you, or sounds appear deaf and dull as you leave a noisy environment, the noise around you is a potentially dangerous level. Other signs of hazardous noise exposure include ear pain and tinnitus or ringing in the ears. If you feel that your ears have become accustomed to loud noises, you may have already suffered damage to your hearing. Many people are unaware of hearing damage until they are tested.

Prevention

It is possible to avoid damage caused by noise. If working in a noisy environment, wear protective earplugs or earmuffs when working. You should also use musicians earplugs while mowing the lawn, using powerful tools or attending a concert. You can protect your children’s hearing by limiting the use of noisy toys and make sure the volume is low on the electronic devices they use.

Hearing loss and music

Adults and children are routinely exposed to loud music. Listening to loud music through headphones connected to devices such as the iPod or MP3 players or at concerts can cause hearing loss.

The inner part of the ear contains hair cells (nerve endings)

The ciliated cells change sound into electrical signals.

Then the nerves carry signals to the brain, which recognizes them as sound.

These hair cells are easily damaged by strong sounds.

The human ear is like any other part of the body – excessive use can cause damage.

Over time, repeated exposure to noise and music can cause hearing loss.

To prevent this from happening or reduce the effects caused from hearing loud music by using musicians earplugs.

Apple to hold media event on September 1, may update iPods and Apple TV

Friday, August 27, 2010

Apple Inc. will hold a music-centered event in San Francisco, California on September 1. It has been widely speculated that the company will introduce an updated line of iPod portable music players and a new Apple TV.

The company e-mailed invitations for the event to various media organizations on Wednesday. The message included a picture of a guitar and the time of the event. Apple did not release any information about what products would be involved.

Apple has released new iPods through previous similar events in September in anticipation of the holiday shopping season. This year, Apple may unveil a new iPod Touch with two cameras, similar to their recent iPhone 4 design. It will likely also update the iTunes music store and software.

Speculation about a new Apple TV is mixed. While many blogs are reporting that a refresh of the device will be announced, analysts say that it is unlikely to happen during next Wednesday’s event. According to Reuters, sources are saying that Apple is negotiating with major television networks, including ABC and NBC, in order to provide shows for purchase on iTunes. However, they also reported that the deal has not been completed, and none of the companies involved have commented on the rumors.

It has also been rumored that Apple will introduce a new online music service. In 2009, Apple took over a company that allowed users to stream music online rather than download individual songs. Apple has not confirmed the rumors.

Last September’s media event saw the return of Apple CEO Steve Jobs after he took a break to undergo a liver transplant. This year, the event will be held in San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, previously used by Apple in April for the unveiling of the iPad.

The Raveonettes on love, death, desire and war

The Raveonettes on love, death, desire and war

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

“We’re only two days in and we’re already fucking tired,” says Sune Rose Wagner to David Shankbone as he walks into the dressing room at the Bowery Ballroom. Wagner and Sharin Foo comprise the Raveonettes, a group made for “nostalgists who long for Everly Brothers 45’s and diner jukeboxes, the Raveonettes tweak “American Graffiti”-era rock with fuzzed-out surf-guitar riffs,” said The New York Times. They recently left Columbia and signed with Fierce Panda because they felt constrained by their Columbia contract: “The major label system sometimes doesn’t allow for outside “help” to get involved, meaning that we don’t get to choose who we wanna work with. That can be a pretty terrible thing and bad things will surely come of it,” said the band on their MySpace site. Originally from Denmark, both musicians live in the United States now.

Their first EP, Chain Gang of Love, was a critical and commercial success. “Few albums provoke such amazing imagery,” said the BBC. “Pretty in Black is virtually fuzz-free,” said Rolling Stone of their next album, “highlighting the exquisite detail in the Raveonettes’ gift for pastiche: the prowling, garage-surf guitars in Love in a Trashcan; the ghost dance of Red Tan, wrapped in Phil Spector-style sleigh bells.” Of their current album, Lust Lust Lust, set to be released on November 5th (although Amazon says March 4, 2008), Sune told NME that, “There are a lot of songs that deal with desire, restlessness and the tough choices you have to make sometimes.” Fans can hear some of the new material at MySpace.com/TheRaveonettes.

Eurovision ’04 winner Ruslana discusses her paths as singer, spokesmodel, stateswoman and source of inspiration

Monday, March 30, 2009

First becoming famous in her native Ukraine in the 1990s, long-haired self-described “AmazonRuslana gained international recognition for winning the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest with her song “Wild Dances,” inspired by the musical traditions of the Hutsul people of the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains.

In the five years since, Ruslana has decided to use her name and public status to represent a number of worthy causes, including human trafficking, renewable energy, and even the basic concept of democratic process, becoming a public face of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution and later serving in Parliament.

Currently, she is on an international publicity tour to promote her album Wild Energy, a project borne out of a science fiction novel that has come to symbolize her hopes for a newer, better, freer way of life for everyone in the world. She took time to respond to questions Wikinews’s Mike Halterman posed to her about her career in music and her other endeavors.

This is the fifth in a series of interviews with past Eurovision contestants, which will be published sporadically in the lead-up to mid-May’s next contest in Moscow.

Signs Your Ex Boyfriend Still Loves You And Wants You Back Even After A Painful Breakup!

Your ex-boyfriend was so angry with you when you broke up that you are certain that you will certainly not see your ex-boyfriend again. However, love someone have for you can not just vanish into tin air, its not something that comes on and off at once, thus if your ex-boy-friend still love you, the signs showing your ex-boyfriend still wants you are visible – it’s left for you to observe them.

Apparently you may not be able to detect these signs yet because – you are still hurt after the break up, hence you would not see things very clearly. In a case like this the first step you take is to make out time for yourself to recover from the heart break, then you check for the signs your ex still wants you back.

Hence forth when ever you go out, watch out for your ex-boyfriend. Whether you are out either on your own just hanging out around the shops, or out with your friends, you might observe that your ex-boyfriend seems to be there as well all the time. At this instant it could be mere coincidence, but it could be possible that your ex-boyfriend knows you will be there and then he makes out time to be there. My instinct tells me it’s for the latter reason.

YouTube Preview Image

When there has been no communication between you and your ex-boyfriend for a while, but all of a sudden he starts sending text messages. These messages may be platonic at first, but as time goes by, the messages become more informal, wanting to know things around you, asking you if you’ve moved on. This is another of the signs pointing out your ex-boyfriend still wants you back.

It has gotten to the stage now, that when you see your ex boyfriend he will come up to you and chart with you, you should avoid irrelevant conversation but rather discuss on happy events that happened when you were together and things he loved doing.

These are signs indicating your ex-boyfriend still wants you back – very faint at first, and as your ex-boyfriend becomes more courageous, it become a lot more obvious. It will develop into to a point when your ex-boyfriend won’t be contented leaving all the obvious signs hanging around, and k up to you and it will get to a point when he will walk up to you approach you to know if there is a chance of getting back together.
