Study: Surgeons Perform Better With Music Playing In The Operating Room

As the study noted, music is already played in operating theatres as a matter of course by most doctors and nurses — about two-thirds, as it turns out. Participants said that listening to music reduced stress and made them feel more relaxed. Patients also reported that music played before their surgeries reduced stress levels. Almost all the respondents preferred classical music of some kind, with a slight preference for Mozart piano sonatas. Classical music was used in six of the studies, and ...

The Polestar SLR shows what Scandinavian minimalism would look like on automobiles

The Polestar SLR is an apt example of a passion project that just evolved and bettered over time. In fact, designer Arthur Martins claims he isn’t done yet! The Polestar SLR (short for Salt Lake Runner) was designed to see how Scandinavian minimalism would manifest on an automobile’s outer body. The advantage of choosing a salt lake racing bike lies in being able to sacrifice a few details for the sake of visual authenticity. The Polestar SLR has minimal ground clearance, basic suspension, and d...

Cost Of The Edinburgh Fringe Is Shutting Out Working Class Artists

“So, who can afford to perform at the Fringe regularly? Who can absorb a grand loss every year? Who can work unpaid for 17 weeks at a time? The answer is people who already have money. People who have the financial resources to take that hit year-in and year-out while they build a profile, while they experiment, while they get better at their job. Not me, and not any of my fellow working class artists – that’s for sure.” – The Stage

How Awards Distort Our Movie And Music Culture

Awards are, it must be said, an absurdity. It is not only possible but crucial to insist on the importance or value of art without giving it a trophy. For the many who are interested in the arts, both mass-marketability and the potential for conferred prestige (i.e. awards) should be irrelevant. If those markers are your interest above the work itself, you can turn to metrics, algorithms, and trending topics, which have robust and widely-available platforms for consumption and analysis....
