Sounds Like Music
Music can loosely be defined as organized sound. The lesson objectives, understanding sound is a form of energy, understanding pitch, understanding sound traveling through a medium, and being able to separate music from sound, can provide a good knowledge base as to how sound, math, and music are related.

"Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein (poetry reading)
I can imagine how much trouble this is going to bring me. So where is this place we go that children know, with a walk that is measured and slow, where the sidewalk ends? If you have a different view, then please have a polite, cogent argument that begins "In my opinion..." Although a couple of the illustrations seem to have perspective, they are actually photographs of drawings chalked on the sidewalk.

4.4.8 Time-limited

Setting yourself a time frame for achieving your goal helps to concentrate the mind. If you say, for example, ‘By Christmas I will have …’ or, ‘In three years’ time I will be …’, it may prompt you to set things in motion. Again, be realistic about how long it will take, so that you do not set yourself up for failure.

In summary, this unit has endeavoured to substantiate a variety of related points which epitomise current trends and problems in governing European diversity.

‘Regions’ and ‘regionalism’ in Western Europe display great diversity in economic, social and cultural terms, within particular states as well as between states; regions vary widely in size, population, levels of development, history, identity and politics (or lack thereof). But since the heyday of the centralise

6.3 Summary

  • None of the three models – national, federal or regional – can adequately capture the complexity of the multifaceted Europe of today. Each implies an exclusive distribution of power between the levels of territorial governance that is too simplistic.

  • We need to think in terms of qualitative changes in the relationships within and between the levels and see them as being linked in multi-layered structures of governance.

5.1 Introduction

The significance of regionalism hinges on empirical questions about the probable future of the EU and normative questions about the (un)desirability of different models for the future. A return to the traditional ‘Europe of Nations’ (that is, nation states) model is improbable precisely because of the growth of regionalism, as well as the firm establishment of the central institutions of the EU. On the other hand, because of the continuing power of states and their major say in Europ

Composing Music for Eisenstein's The General Line
In 2011, Sergei Eisenstein's silent film The General Line (1929) was screened with a score for the first time. Eisenstein had failed to find funding for a soundtrack when making the film, but left a set of notes intended as a guide for a composed score. Commissioned by the BFI, composers Max De Wardener, Ed Finnis and The Elysian Quartet joined forces to produce an original score from Eisenstein's notes. The musicians discuss their collaboration on this unique project. Find more videos like th
