My lovely country

Hello everyone I am back again with a new blog. I wrote many blogs but today I will write on our country India.

India is a very beautiful country. It is a developed country. And soon it will be a developed country. There are many places to visit in India like Taj Mahal, Red Fort, India Gate and Gateway of India and many more. These are some places that were built by some great rulers of India. 

Before the british Raj India was called Sona  KI Chidiya because that time India had a lot of gold and money. But after the British Raj India was left poor with a little of gold and money but see from where to where we have came.

There are many different types of foods you will get to eat in India like bhelpuri, Sevpuri and vada  pav.

There are also many festivals are also celebrated in India like Holi, Diwali and Ganesh Chaturti. There are many states that celebrate their their own festival. 

I hope that you all might have enjoyed this blog and I will come again with some more interesting blog later. Till that goodbye.

after the super nova, the star explodes out lout. it sucks all the light surrounded by it and light a bit far away from it. then it either forms a new star or it will be in the exact same position of the explosion. it slowly turns colorful. Then slowly the colorful part dissapears into the deep black part. This colorful part is known as the VERTICAL HORIZON. This is the scariest part of the black hole. it helps the hole to expand out.

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art, characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques.

History about Taekwondo   

Beginning in 1945, shortly after the end of World War II, new martial arts schools called kwans opened in Seoul. These schools were established by Korean martial artists with backgrounds in Japanese, Chinese and Korean martial arts. The umbrella term traditional taekwondo typically refers to the martial arts practiced by the kwans during the 1940s and 1950s, though in reality the term “taekwondo” had not yet been coined at that time, and indeed each Kwan (martial art school) was practicing its own unique style of martial art. During this time taekwondo was also adopted for use by the South Korean military, which increased its popularity among civilian martial arts schools. 

Features

Taekwondo is characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques. In fact, World Taekwondo sparring competitions award additional points for strikes that incorporate spinning kicks, kicks to the head, or both.[11]To facilitate fast, turning kicks, taekwondo generally adopts stances that are narrower and taller than the broader, wide stances used by martial arts such as karate. The tradeoff of decreased stability is believed to be worth the commensurate increase in agility, particularly in Kukkiwon-style taekwondo.

Theory of power- The emphasis on speed and agility is a defining characteristic of taekwondo and has its origins in analyses undertaken by Choi Hong Hi. The results of that analysis are known by ITF practitioners as Choi’s Theory of Power. Choi based his understanding of power on biomechanics and Newtonian physics as well as Chinese martial arts. For example, Choi observed that the power of a strike increases quadratically with the speed of the strike, but increases only linearly with the mass of the striking object. In other words, speed is more important than size in terms of generating power. This principle was incorporated into the early design of taekwondo and is still used. 

 

A WT-style dobok

A typical dojang

A taekwondo practitioner typically wears a uniform (dobok 도복/道服), often white but sometimes black (or other colors), with a belt tied around the waist. White uniforms are considered the traditional color and are usually encouraged for use at formal ceremonies such as belt tests and promotions. Colored uniforms are often reserved for special teams (such as demonstration teams or leadership teams) or higher-level instructors. There are at least three major styles of dobok, with the most obvious differences being in the style of jacket:

  1. The cross-over front jacket (usually seen in ITF style), in which the opening of the jacket is vertical.
  2. The cross-over Y-neck jacket (usually seen in the Kukkiwon/WT style, especially for poomase competitions), in which the opening of the jacket crosses the torso diagonally.
  3. The pull-over V-neck jacket (usually seen in Kukkiwon/WT style, especially for sparring competitions).

Health And Fitness For Busy Person

The List

A great way to focus your time on the things you value, such as staying healthy and fit, is to create a list of everything you’d like to do in your free time, such as watching your favourite TV series or running.

Once you’ve got your list, number each activity in terms of how much of a priority it is for you, starting at number one and working your way down. At the end of this task you’ll have a list of the activities you value. Try to always fit in at least one of your top three priorities per day, even if it’s just for 15 minutes.

2

Less Can Be More

You do not always have to exercise for an hour to reap the benefits and as soon as you understand this you will be able to exercise more regularly, even when you have a jam-packed day. For example, you can do four minutes of kettle bell exercises, four minutes of abs work and two minutes of squats and lunges.

3

Learn Some Super Quick Recipes

Slaving over a hot oven is no fun, especially when you’ve had an awful day and arrive home late into the night. To make sure that on these days you don’t reach for unhealthy convenience foods learn some super quick recipes you can knock up in an instant. A turkey steak with a feta and beetroot salad is a healthy meal that can be knocked up in less than 10 minutes, as can vegetable frittatas.

4

Use The Loudspeaker Or Your Mobile

If you tend to be on the phone a lot, think about ways you can get active during these long calls. Getting out of the office and going for a walk somewhere quiet can be a great way to get some exercise without losing any concentration whilst on the phone, or even pacing in your office whilst on the phone can help keep you active and healthy.

5

Optimum Foods

When you’re busy your diet can suffer and vending machines, pizzas and takeaways can become too much of a regular occurrence. To make sure you’re getting the right nutrition make sure you always have a good stock of foods that deliver the maximum health benefits to hand. For example, tomatoes (good for your heart), spinach (good for your brain), blueberries (good for your cholesterol), salmon (good for weight loss) and pumpkin seeds (good for your memory) are hugely nutritious and will keep you full.

6

Pick A Healthy Hotel

A study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that people who travel away for work more than 20 times per month were 1.92 times more likely to be obese and 2.61 times more likely to feel like they had poor to fair health than those workers who only travelled for six times per month. If you travel away from home for work try to book hotels with gyms, healthy menu options and when you are there avoid comfort eating and instead reward yourself in other ways.

7

Workout With Your Kids

If you watch your little ones running about you quickly realise that they’re better than any personal trainer.

Playing with your kids, whether it’s on the trampoline, dancing around your living room or playing a big game of tag together is a great way to workout without realising it. Plus this way you don’t feel guilty about not spending enough time with them.

8

Relax

When you are chasing a day full of meetings with a busy evening your stress levels are probably sky-high and stress has a terrible impact on your health and wellbeing. Therefore one of the best things you can do to stay healthy and fit is to learn how to relax. If you don’t have time to meditate or take a hot bath, studies have found that even the anticipation of laughter can help us to relax and reduce stress levels in the body. So, take a look at some funny Youtube videos to help you unwind.

9

Supersets

On those occasions when you manage to carve a space in your busy schedule to exercise, make sure you are getting the most out of your workout by doing supersets. Super-setting can cut your exercise time by 50 per cent because instead of having rest periods between sets, you do an alternative exercise that rests the muscles you’ve just trained and exercises the opposite one, before you begin your next set. For example, once you’ve worked on your stomach, work out your lower back.

10

Live An Active Lifestyle

If you struggle to find the time to get to the gym or to get to your dance class then incorporating exercise into your lifestyle might help you to stay healthy and fit even when your schedule is maxed. For example, carry your shopping home rather than getting a cab, do some gardening with your partner on your date night, or go swimming with a friend instead of meeting for coffee.

People want to be healthy, they just don’t know how. According to a Nielsen Health and Wellness report, nearly all Americans (89 percent) believe taking personal responsibility for their health is the key to staying healthy. However, only 70 percent say they’re actually willing to try to be healthier, while 66 percent say they don’t exercise enough and 50 percent say it’s too hard to eat healthy.

For those who are too busy (or lazy) to invest time into their workouts or healthy lifestyle routines, try some of our favorite science-backed tricks to a healthier life, with less effort.

6 Hacks To A Healthier Lifestyle:

1. Downsize to Smaller Plates, Shallow Bowls, and Tall Glasses

A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge experimented with portion sizes, packages, and tableware and found by simply eating off of smaller plates, participants ate 22 to 29 percent fewer daily calories compared to those who ate off of average plates.

The study’s co-author, Dr. Gareth Hollands, a senior researcher of health psychology at the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine, told Medical Daily“It might be nice to think it’s all decided by people’s conscious choices to go ahead and do something, but we’ve actually seen all these environmental factors and external cues, including package and plate sizes, that are extremely important to shaping our eating behavior.”

In another study, researchers from Cornell University’s Food and Brand Lab found when people were given the freedom to serve themselves from a buffet, those who ate off of larger plates overloaded and took more than a normal portion. Meanwhile, those with normal plates underserved themselves with smaller-than-normal portions.

2. Lay Out Athletic Clothes and A Mint Each Night

Plan on going for a run in the morning or getting to the gym for an early AM workout? Set out your workout clothes and any necessary gear next to your bed each night. It’ll be much easier knowing you don’t have to use your brain to find your socks or shorts as soon as you wake up.

If your workout clothes don’t inspire you to get up and go, place a mint or gum next to your alarm clock. Pop it in your mouth as soon as you wake up. A 2011 study found the act of chewing gum alone will wake the brain up to help us focus at the task ahead (like crawling out of bed). Mint also helps to give the brain a jolt to awaken the senses and help inspire you to get your workout in.

3. Grab-and-Go Snacks

Hunger is the enemy of dieting discipline. Whether you’re keeping your calories at a normal range or hoping to follow through with a cleanse diet, hunger has the power to create impulsive eating behaviors. A recent study published in the Journal of Marketing Research found being hungry while ordering a meal can cause an unnecessary surge in calorie intake.

While meal prepping can significantly increase the likelihood you’ll stick to your diet, it requires a bit of planning and effort.  In the long run you’ll actually save time, money, and calories by cooking all of your meals in the beginning of the week. But if you’re not ready to commit to a full week’s worth of prep, creating on-the-go snacks and hunger-pang fighting treats can help you from overindulging at lunch and dinnertime. Separate grapes, low-sodium pretzels, and carrot sticks with hummus into zip lock baggies to hide in your desk drawer, fridge, or purse in time of need.

Never meal prepped before? Use our guide to learn the basics and get startedRead here.

4. Post-Workout Protein

Want to get the most out of your workout? Within 30 minute of working out, eat foods high in protein, such as hard-boiled eggs, peanut butter, and grilled chicken. If you want to start on a committed fitness journey, try to optimize your intake with protein powder.

During workouts the body burns glucose as fuel, but eventually begins to break down muscle mass and make microtears. Your body needs to rebuild that muscle so it turns to carbohydrates and protein to help. Dietitian Kim McDevitt recommends a 4-to-1 protein-carbohydrate ratio of about 50 to 100 calories.

5. Drink 2 Cups of Water Before Every Meal

Drink up! A 2015 study published in the journal Obesity revealed drinking 2 cups of water 30 minutes before participants ate led to moderate weight loss over the course of 12 weeks. By simply drinking water when you first wake up, go out for lunch, or get home from work, you can improve your health without having to do much. Plus, keeping the body hydrated is essential to remove waste, lubricate joints, aid in digestion, and fight off headaches, dry mouth, and dizziness.

“The beauty of these findings is in the simplicity,” said the study’s co-author Dr. Helen Parretti, a researchers at the University of Birmingham, in a statement. “Just drinking a pint of water three times a day before your main meals may help reduce your weight. It’s something that doesn’t take much work to integrate into our busy everyday lives.”

6. Commercial-Break Workouts

For those days you just don’t want to go to the gym or can’t find the inspiration to tie up your running shoes, turn to the television for help. Turn on a favorite show or plan to watch a program that has commercial breaks (which means no binge-watching on Netflix). Every commercial break, rotate between sit-ups, push-ups, jump roping, lunges, squats, and wall sits, and if you have free weights, incorporate some bicep-curls and tricep-extensions. The variety is endless and the incremental workout you’ll get by the end of your program will make staying home worth it.

6 HEALTHY LIVING TIPS FOR BUSY PEOPLE

SHARES71

tips-for-busy-people-1

Being busy can often mean that while we’re hard at work with exciting projects, our bodies and minds are quietly in uproar. Working long, tiring days can put health on the back-burner. Ain’t nobody got time for a daily run and three home-cooked meals, right? Well, not quite. But even if you don’t have enough hours in the day for a trip to the gym, these six healthy living tips will get you feeling good, so you can get back to, you know, your to-do list.

1. TAKE A 20-MINUTE NAP TO RECHARGE YOUR BODY + MIND

Anyone else feel exhausted by 2pm? Well, studies have shown that you don’t have to wait ’til bedtime to reenergize your body. In fact, many sources recommend getting in a 20-minute nap everyday. According to The National Sleep Foundation, “This type of nap provides significant benefit for improved alertness and performance without leaving you feeling groggy or interfering with nighttime sleep.” Um, sign me up!

2. MAKE SMOOTHIES FOR BREAKFAST AND ON-THE-GO SNACKS

Smoothies are pretty much a perfect breakfast and snack option, since you’re able to throw a bunch of fruits and veggies into a blender and call it a day in less than five minutes. I make a smoothie everyday for breakfast while I brew my morning coffee — easy! Silk’s website is a great resource for smoothie recipes (the Garden Goodness Smoothie is very similar to one I make!). You can also add soymilk to your smoothies as an added source of protein, which will make your smoothies more filling and nutritious.

3. CREATE A LIST OF ACTION ITEMS FOR OCCASIONAL FREE TIME

Ahh a rare moment of free time. But since you’re busy almost every other minute of the day, you have no idea what to do with yourself! Browse Facebook? Check…my email? Nay! Write down a list of easy action items you can do during those brief moments of peace and keep it on your desk, where you’ll always see it. Some simple ideas are to meditate, enjoy a healthy snack, down a bottle of water, or go for a quick walk. So next time you have a ten-minute gap in your schedule, you’ll use it to replenish your mind + body instead of deteriorating it.

4. EXERCISE + STRETCH DURING TV COMMERCIAL BREAKS

Imagine this: you just got off work and you’re exhausted. All you want to do is catch up on Orange is the New Black and cuddle with your dog (just me?). Instead of totally veg-ing out on the couch, use commercial breaks as a chance to stretch your body or do quick exercises, like lunges or jumping jacks. No commercials à la Netflix? Just pause in between big scenes.

5. DRINK MORE FLUIDS

I know, you’ve heard this about 900 times, but it’s so true! Since I sit in front of a computer for much of the day, I notice that I occasionally get headaches. Instead of taking pain relievers, I just drink more water! A lack of fluids can be a big cause of fatigue and head pains, but the solution is so simple. Drink up!

6. CREATE A WEEK’S WORTH OF HEALTHY MEALS IN ONE NIGHT

You may not have time to cook everyday, but you likely do have a couple hours to prepare a stock of meals that you can have for the upcoming week. This way, you won’t be rushing around or have to resort to fast food. You can cook healthy options like fish and veggies and just keep it in ready-to-go tupperware containers in your fridge. Life changer.

I often hear from my clients and Health Sciences students that staying on a healthy path is difficult with the fast-paced world in which we live. As a busy working mom of three children under 3 years old (a 3.5-year-old and twin 16-month-olds), I would have to say that time is literally of the essence to get a healthy meal on the table. I could not accomplish this feat without meal planning, prep, inspiration, tools, and a little help from Sesame Street.

Planning is key. Meal planning is the new buzz word for a fast-paced life. According to the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition & Physical Activity, “Individuals planning their meals were more likely to have a better dietary quality, including a higher adherence with nutritional guidelines as well as an increased food variety. Additionally, meal planning was associated with lower odds of being obese in men and women and overweight in women only.”

Each week I sit down and write a Monday–Sunday list of dinners that I know are quick, healthy, and delicious. No one wants to eat boring food, so I attempt to give each day a consistent main theme that helps with the busy week and provides overall balance. Not much of a planner? There is an app for that, literally down to the list! Digital Trends and Real Simple  have lists of apps to choose from. Many of the apps also have creative meal inspiration. There’s something for nearly everyone!

Here are some tips that might work for you:

  • Plan “theme of the day” dinners. Big Meal Sundays (double batch meals for leftovers or lunch), Meatless Mondays (bean burger, frittatas, or join the veggie noodle craze), Taco Tuesday (lighten up with ground bison or turkey, 1/2 pack of low-sodium taco seasoning mix), Boneless Chicken Thigh Wednesdays (ok, it doesn’t flow, but you get the idea and they are easy to cook), Take Out at Home Thursday (veggie pizza, tofu stir-fry, Indian spiced cauliflower), and Fish
  • Prep & Pair: I then pair each main course with a fitting vegetable and potential There are some great vegetables out there that come pre-packed (think Mexican slaw for Taco Tuesday) that can easily be mixed, microwaved, or roasted in under 20 minutes. If you can’t purchase pre-cut veggies, just add some time to your prep list on the day off and store appropriately. My fast and healthy go-to grains include brown rice (instant or not), polenta, faro, and quinoa.
  • Add a dose of inspiration: There are a lot of good resources out there these One of my favorites is the Real Simple magazine website. They give you at least five recipes each month with the time needed for preparation and cooking and a nutritional breakdown.
  • Have the right tools on hand: Anything that can decrease your time preparing and cooking is worth the money spent: Instant Pots, crockpots, grills, air tight containers, blenders, hand choppers, and the list goes

Other meal planning tips:

  • A faster, better breakfast: Some go-tos are oats (cold, hot, slightly sweet, or savory) and smoothies (low- Greek yogurt, frozen vegetable, and fruit).
  • Quick-pack lunch: Leftovers make great lunches, especially on top of greens or in a quesadilla. Really on the run? I love portion-packed nuts, apples, other quick-eat fruit, and Greek Yogurt

I know meal planning can be painful but based on my experiences with clients, it will help you optimize your dietary options and meet your long-term health plans. Remember it’s a lifestyle change, but it is a change worth making.

Our modern lifestyle, with all its good sides, also has brought disorder in our eating and sleeping patterns, as well as a decrease in physical activity.

Nowadays, we spend most of our time being static — while commuting to the job, sitting at a desk in the office, or relaxing on the couch. If we add the lack of time for exercise, then we get a perfect way to gain weight and live an unbalanced life. After a long day at the office and surviving rush hour traffic, the last thing on your mind is making a healthy meal. We all do the same: order our favorite food (we deserve it, after getting through the day) and wait for it in front of the TV.

People link healthy living with skipping out on things and, in some way they are right – fast food, alcohol, cigarettes, and sweets all have to go out. It does seem daunting, but it is doable. It all comes down to the way of preparing food, making choices, and changing the way we think.

Having a healthy diet despite your busy schedule is possible. Here’s how to do it.

1. Blend Everything

healthy nutrition for busy people - blending

There is a way to create a healthy and nutritious meal in a few minutes. Wondering how? The answer is – blending. The blended meal can replace breakfast, lunch or dinner or it can be a refreshing snack. This way you can make smoothies, soups or whipped dips.

What can be blended? Absolutely everything – fruits, vegetables and even meat. There are many recipes on the Internet so the ideas are plenty, and you can express your creativity by combining the food you love or experiment with food mixtures that seem interesting.

Smoothies are also quite effective because they stop your sugar cravings if you add some low- yogurt or ice cream.

2. Have a Healthy Delivery

delivery

It often happens that lunch breaks at work are spent working instead of actually enjoying a meal. In these moments, we reach for pastries, donuts or pizza delivery. I, for example, know by heart the phone numbers of pizza joints and fast food restaurants and order unhealthy food without thinking. That has to change!

Find which restaurants serve healthy food on the Internet and the next time you wish to order, call them. You will be surprised how many tasty and nutritious meals you will be able to choose! Salads with grilled chicken or seafood, various types of grilled fish, grilled calamari or pasta with goat cheese, lemon and asparagus. You’ve already gotten hungry, haven’t you?

3. Protein Powder and Bars

protein

Protein supplements have become a necessity for a busy lifestyle since protein-rich food doesn’t come cheap, and there is less time to prepare it. When you are late for work in the morning, rushing to the door, the last thing you have in mind is to make a quick meal, and this is one scenario where protein shakes and bars come in handy.

In some cases, you may simply find that there is one particular protein shake flavor or protein bar that you find absolutely delicious and just want to include it in your diet. But remember, although these helpful supplements may be a convenient way to make you full, it doesn’t mean that they are a replacement for a proper meal. It is advisable to consume them regularly but only as an addition to a well-balanced diet.

4. Carry Your Health in Bottles

bottles

What first comes to your mind when you think of a healthy drink? If it’s water you’re thinking of, you are right. What the body needs – water provides. It re-hydrates our system because we lose fluids through breathing, sweating, and metabolism. Water has one more advantage – it is calorie and sugar-free.

Always have a small bottle of water in your purse, car and at the office desk. This way you will remind yourself to hydrate. If you want to save the money and spare yourself from stopping by in store when you realize you didn’t buy the water the night before, fill bottles at home. Use water filtered pitchers to filter water, and pour it into the bottle you will carry before leaving the house. Water filters reduce lead, zinc, copper, cadmium, mercury, chromium, DDT and chlorine taste. If you like flavored waters, you can add crushed berries, crushed mint, peeled and sliced cucumber or sliced citrus fruits into the container.

5. Prepare for the Workweek Accordingly

healthy nutrition for busy people - containers

Having food prepared in advance is essential to keep healthy eating habits, as well as to lose or maintain weight. When healthy meals are ready and immediately available, we are more likely to eat those meals instead of ordering unhealthy fast food or stopping at the store for a quick snack.

Also, by doing this, we reduce stress and anxiety when trying to figure out what to eat every single day for the rest of our lives. The key to success is in preparation. It’s simple – it is all about in the make-ahead recipes that you can prepare and enjoy eating all week. Furthermore, everything can be done in just one day, so you don’t need to stress about it for the rest of the workweek.

6. Be Careful What You Order in Restaurants

restoran

Sometimes people avoid restaurants thinking it will sabotage their healthy diet, but that doesn’t necessarily need to happen if you plan ahead, consider the menu and choose your meal carefully to keep it up with your diet plan. Even if you are eating out at a café or a restaurant, you can make healthy choices to ensure that your meal is well balanced.

If you do not want to end up eating more than you would have done when you are serving your own portions, the first thing to remember is that wherever, whatever and whenever you are eating – you do not need to clear your plate! Try to eat slowly, take your time and stop eating when you are full.

7. Stack Favorite Fruit and Veggies Everywhere

Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Also, they lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, , cardiovascular disease and even cancer. Eating produce can make weight management easier because they are low in calories. Consuming fruit and vegetable regularly contributes to weight loss or maintenance of a healthy body shape.

Do not forget to fulfill your daily dose of fresh produce, and also to always have a fresh snack that will quench your hunger. The trick is to leave fruits and vegetables on tactical places. Leave the apple on the office desk and put a banana in a drawer. Leave an orange in the car; i.e. – in the glove compartment. Put a carrot in your purse, and perhaps have some grapes on the living room table. Of course, the choice and combination of fruits and veggies depend on you and your affinity.

8. Opt for Yogurt

healthy nutrition for busy people - yogurt

Yogurt can be a great ally in your healthy diet plan, but like any other food it should be eaten moderately since balanced and varied diet is necessary for good health. It is a great dairy product, rich in calcium and protein, but more importantly, it is low in and calories.

Finding a type of yogurt that suits your needs is also important, and it is determined on how much you eat on a daily basis because some are more nutritious than others. For example, if you are not into plain low- yogurt, which is very nutritious by the way, you can add to it other foods to improve flavor such as fruit for sweeter taste or nuts to add some crunchiness while increasing nutritious protein and healthy unsaturated fats.

9. Healthy Sandwich Options Worthy of a King

sandwich

All it takes is correct planning and only about five minutes to make – the sandwich is the perfect choice combining whole grains, veggies, and protein into one filing meal. It is basically two pieces of bread that leave room in-between for an indefinite amount of stacked nutrients, and when it is done right, it makes for a healthy and filling option. So if you want something done right – do it yourself.

To make a low-calorie sandwich without sacrificing good taste or satisfaction try to add some avocados or pickles, pile it on the veggies, switch to whole-grain and skip the bread altogether. Try to introduce some meat-free proteins or just think beyond basic meat and cheese and add flavor with low-calorie accompaniments. And after all, remember – diet is not only about losing weight, it’s about eating right!

Horn Music

Music is a form of art; an expression of emotions through harmonic frequencies. Music is also a form of entertainment that puts soundstogether in a way that people like, find interesting or dance to. Most music includes people singing with their voices or playing musical instruments, such as the pianoguitardrums or violin.

The word music comes from the Greek word (mousike), which means “(art) of the Muses”. In Ancient Greece the Muses included the goddesses of music, poetryart, and dance. Someone who makes music is known as a musician.

Definitions[change | change source]

There is no simple definition of music which covers all cases. It is an art form, and opinions come into play. Music is whatever people think is music. A different approach is to list the qualities music must have, such as, sound which has rhythm, melody, pitch, timbre, etc.

These and other attempts, do not capture all aspects of music, or leave out examples which definitely are music. According to Thomas Clifton, music is “a certain reciprocal relation established between a person, his behavior, and a sounding object”.[1]p10 Musical experience and the music, together, are called phenomena, and the activity of describing phenomena is called phenomenology.

History

Even in the stone age people made music. The first music was probably made trying to imitate sounds and rhythms that occurred naturally. Human music may echo these phenomena using patternsrepetition and tonality. This kind of music is still here today. Shamans sometimes imitate sounds that are heard in nature.[2][3] It may also serve as entertainment (games),[4][5] or have practical uses, like attracting animals when hunting.[4]

Some animals also can use music. Songbirds use song to protect their territory, or to attract a mateMonkeys have been seen beating hollow logs. This may, of course, also serve to defend the territory.

The first musical instrument used by humans was probably the voice. The human voice can make many different kinds of sounds. The larynx(voice box) is like a wind instrument.

The oldest known Neanderthal hyoid  with the modern human form was found in 1983,[6] indicating that the Neanderthals had language, because the hyoid supports the voice box in the human throat.[7]

Most likely the first rhythm instruments or percussion instruments involved the clapping of hands, stones hit together, or other things that are useful to keep a beat. There are finds of this type that date back to the paleolithic. Some of these are ambiguous, as they can be used either as a tool or a musical instrument.[8]

The first flutes[change | change source]

The Divje flute

The oldest flute ever discovered may be the so-called Divje flute, found in the Slovenian cave Divje I in 1995. It is not certain that the object is really a flute.[9] The item in question is a fragment of the femur of a young cave bear, and has been dated to about 43,000 years ago.[10][11] However, whether it is truly a musical instrument or simply a carnivore-chewed is a matter of ongoing debate.[9]

In 2008, archaeologists discovered a flute in the Hohle Fels cave near UlmGermany.[12] [13] The five-holed flute has a V-shaped mouthpiece and is made from a vulture wing . The researchers involved in the discovery officially published their findings in the journal Nature, in June 2009. The discovery is also the oldest confirmed find of any musical instrument in history.[14] Other flutes were also found in the cave. This flute was found next to the Venus of Hohle Fels and a short distance from the oldest known human carving.[15] When they announced their discovery, the scientists suggested that the “finds demonstrate the presence of a well-established musical tradition at the time when modern humans colonized Europe”.[16]

The oldest known wooden pipes were discovered near GreystonesIreland, in 2004. A wood-lined pit contained a group of six flutes made from yew wood, between 30 and 50 cm long, tapered at one end, but without any finger holes. They may once have been strapped together.[17]

In 1986 several flutes were found in Jiahu in Henan Province, China. They date to about 6,000 BC. They have between 5 and 8 holes each and were made from the hollow bones of a bird, the Red-crowned Crane. At the time of the discovery, one was found to be still playable. The flute plays both the five- or seven-note scale of Xia Zhi and six-note scale of Qing Shang of the ancient Chinese musical system.

Written music[change | change source]
Music can be written in several ways. When it is written on a staff (like in the example shown), the pitches (tones) and their duration are represented by symbols called notes. Notes are put on the lines and in the spaces between the lines. Each position says which tone must be played. The higher the note is on the staff, the higher the pitch of the tone. The lower the notes are, the lower the pitch. The duration of the notes (how long they are played for) is shown by making the note “heads” black or white, and by giving them stems and flags.

Music can also be written with letters, naming them as in the solfa “Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do” or representing them by letters. The next table shows how each note of the solfa is represented in the Standard Notation:

Solfa Name Standard Notation
Do C
Re D
Mi E
Fa F
Sol G
La A
Ti B

The Standard Notation was made to simplify the lecture of music notes, although it is mostly used to represent chords and the names of the music scales.

These ways to represent music ease the way a person reads music. There are more ways to write and represent music, but they are less known and may be more complicated.
