A place for music in the emergency department

The emergency department is a place of unpredictability. Some days are a whirlwind, others drag, but both can be interesting. On a calmer day, I found myself, a fourth-year medical student, working with a physician I will call Dr. Smith. We discovered that we shared a common love for music, and between patients, we discussed everything from opera, to banjo, to Indian music. I am a composer and amateur classical pianist, and he often takes the train to New York City to catch an opera at the Met. ...

How Saxophones Are Made: Two Short Films (Including One by Sesame Street) Take You Inside Saxophone Factories

Many of us, handed a saxophone, wouldn't have the first clue about how to play it properly, and almost none of us would have any idea at all about how to make one. Then again, those of us of a certain generation might feel an old memory coming back to the surface: hadn't we once witnessed the inner workings of a saxophone factory? We did if we ever happened to catch the classic 1980 Sesame Street short above which shows the saxophone-making process in its entirety, beginning with flat sh...

Outdated practices

Image source I was thinking today about change. We all desire change, but not many of us want to change ourselves. Irony.Well, time moves on, doesn't it? New technologies emerge, outmoded devices are discarded; old buildings are knocked down to make way for new ones, and children grow up fast. Everything is changing, except perhaps in schools. School is the main experience for children, the key influence on their preparation for the future. So why is it so difficult to get schools to keep...

Bob Dylan Plays Tom Petty’s “Learning to Fly” Live in Concert (and How Petty Witnessed Dylan’s Musical Epiphany in 1987)

While performing in Denver this past weekend, Bob Dylan paid tribute to Tom Petty, playing a cover of his 1991 track, "Learning to Fly." Most will remember their time together in the Traveling Wilburys. But really their relationship was cemented before that, when the musicians embarked on the long True Confessions Tour in 1986. That's when Dylan lost his mojo and nearly ended his career, then suddenly found new inspiration again, all while Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers shared the same ...

Calm Down & Study with Relaxing Piano, Jazz & Harp Covers of Music from Hayao Miyazaki Films

Calling all pediatric dentists! Cat Trumpet, aka musician and anime lover Curtis Bonnett, may have inadvertently hit on a genius solution for keeping young patients calm in the chair: relaxing piano covers of familiar tunes from Studio Ghibli’s animated features. The results fall somewhere between pianist George Winston’s early 80s seasonal solos and Ryuichi Sakamoto’s soundtrack for the film Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. Let us remember that most of these tunes were fairly easy on ...

The Women of the Blues: Hear a Playlist of Great Blues Singers, from Bessie Smith & Etta James, to Billie Holiday & Janis Joplin

Everybody gets the blues but not everybody gets the blues the same. Women get some serious blues. Black women get some very serious blues. Bessie Smith maybe had the most deep and soulful blues anyone ever had: “Crazy Blues,” “Down Hearted Blues,” “Careless Love Blues,” “Empty Bed Blues,” “Black Water Blues,” “Gulf Coast Blues,” and “St. Louis Blues,” which also happens to be the title of her only known film appearance, as well as one of the earliest talkies in cinema history.

Redbird Migration Looks Back at the Future of Flight Training

For the past six years, Redbird, which has developed a family of aviation training devices, has sponsored a flight-training symposium attended by a hundred or more of the land’s leading aviation educators. Known as the Redbird Migration, in the past this flock congregated at Redbird’s roost in Texas. For its seventh season, it met in Oshkosh, hosted by EAA. For many of the participants, it was their first time in Oshkosh outside of EAA AirVenture, and the dearth of aircraft, people, and traffic...

Contemporary Philosophy of Religion and NCEA Religious Studies: Part Four

Are You Looking for a Free Citation Machine?

Every student knows the pain of writing term papers and theses, and then the added nightmare of creating a bibliography and citing all your sources. Citations are a royal pain, and anyone who has ever written paper knows that. These days, students not only have to manage their academics, but they also must juggle a social life, sleep, and in some cases even a part-time job to support their education. It often leads to time shortage and the student is left to write their term papers at the ...

The power of speech, free or otherwise | Letters

Freedom of speech on campus | Regional accents | Chinese oratory | The name gameWhat a thought-provoking article from Gaby Hinsliff (If millennials are wary of free speech, who can blame them?, 20 October). Defending the right to free speech has never been about hurling abuse or inciting violence. It’s about keeping debate and discussion open. Trolls, on the contrary, aim to frighten people into silence and close down freedom of expression. Controlling this online is hard, but is no excuse for g...

An Oxford student, academics and a sixth-form Oxbridge support service co-ordinator offer their views on the diversity debateOxbridge has a diversity problem.

Robots vs Teachers. Expecting a standoff?

I’ve got this poster in my class that says “Technology won’t replace teachers. But teachers who use technology will probably replace teachers who do not.”   It raises a few of eyebrows. So I was intrigued by a story in Education Week last month about how ‘intelligent tutors’ could upend Teachers’ jobs. The story cites an EdTech […]
