Friday My Town Shoot Out: Tallest Buildings


Tallest Buildings [Friday My Town Shoot Out Link-Up

when it comes to tallest tower,
we have come to a point without a doubt
from Chicago John Handcock, to New York Twin tower,
all of them carry unbeatable power

other competitive ones come from shanghai,
Taipei, New York, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Mecca, or Dubai
a building is a collection of architecture wisdom
a project is build on someone's artistic design

the opposite of the tallest 
is the shortest or smallest constructions,
which is pleasant to all if you show us what you saw
last time, such as Penn Square or Fashion Valley mall

we count things by volumes,
we measure things be quality, quantity, and joyful sparks,
regardless the sizes,
we love and adore all objects on earth.

for priority reason, all unexpected is welcome

P is for Pumpkin. 

 Bluebell Books Twitter Club!



how can we agree
when we can not laugh, grow, and learn fro free?
how can we frown
when a man rejects wedding gown, and the sun rises by dawn

if a green face monster has wings,
then we are not sure about other things:
a fish sleeps with eyes open,
a horse rests with his legs straighten

perspective nondescript,
princeton scholars give quirky manuscript,
pancakes are free during osu finals week,
pine corns drop their heads down near elm tree

placid thoughts go buoyancy
plain French bread comes soft and bossy,
Dutch girls show clean braids
Sydney theater winks to snowfall in may!

pumpkin patch,
I spy an unexpected witch,
lewis moses black and white sketch,
I hand trace wrinkled angels.

Sheng (instrument) (ShengWu=Biology)

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sheng with 17 pipes, height is 55cm (22 inches)
Sheng player beside the River Thames, London, England
The sheng (Chinese: ; Pinyin shēng) is a Chinese mouth-blown free reed instrument consisting of vertical pipes.
It is one of the oldest Chinese instruments, with images depicting its kind dating back to 1100 BCE,[1] and there are actual instruments from the Han era that have been preserved today.[1] Traditionally, the sheng has been used as an accompaniment instrument for solo suona or dizi performances. It is one of the main instruments in kunqu and some other forms of Chinese opera. Traditional small ensembles also make use of the sheng, such as the wind and percussion ensembles in northern China. In the modern large Chinese orchestra, it is used for both melody and accompaniment.
The sheng has been used in the works of a few non-Chinese composers, including Unsuk Chin, Lou Harrison, Tim Risher, Daníel Bjarnason, Guus Janssen, Brad Catler, and Christopher Adler. Some believe that Johann Wilde and Pere Amiot traveled to China and brought the first shengs to Europe in 1740 and 1777 respectively,[2] although there is evidence that free reed musical instruments similar to shengs were known in Europe a century earlier.[3]

History

Chinese free-reed wind instruments named he and yu were first mentioned in bone oracle writings dating from the 14th–12th centuries BCE, and were identified in later texts as types of sheng. The first appearance of the word "sheng" is in some of the poems of Shijing (Book of Odes), dating back c. 7th century BCE. Ancient instruments with gourd wind chambers, varying numbers of pipes, with bamboo or metal reeds have been discovered in archaeological finds at the tomb of the Marquis Yi of Zeng (c. 433 BC) in present-day Hubei province, and the Han tombs at Mawangdui (c. 2nd century BCE) in Hunan province.
In the eighth century, three yu and three sheng were sent to the Japanese court and these have been preserved in the Shōsōin imperial repository in Nara. All the instruments had 17 pipes with a long curving mouthpiece and are very similar to the traditional sheng in use today. However variants with different numbers of pipes, and chromatic instruments have been documented over the centuries.

Modern changes

The kinds of sheng currently used are the products of changes made since the early 20th century that enhanced its sound and volume as well as increasing its range. Early changes were made by Zheng Jinwen (鄭覲文, 1872-1935) who increased the number of pipes to 32, expanding its range and allowing it to play harmony and chords. The air chamber and size of the pipes were also enlarged, changing the tone color of the instrument.[4] Later various changes were also introduced by players such as Weng Zhenfa (翁鎮發) and particularly Hu Tianquan (胡天泉), with different variants of the instrument produced.

Acoustics and performance

The sheng's reeds vibrate at a fixed frequency unlike single reeds, double reeds, and pointed free reeds which vibrate at the pitch according to the length of the attached air column. Covering a hole on the sheng's pipe causes the entire length of the pipe to resonate with the reeds' frequency. If the hole is open, the resonance frequency would not match, and hence no sound is produced.
The sheng is played by alternately blowing and inhaling, and a player can produce a continuous sound without pause. The traditional performance style is to sound two or three notes at the same time by adding a fifth and/or octave above the main melody note. When a higher note is not available, a lower note a fourth below the main melody note can be played instead.

Types

Shengs can be classified into traditional sheng (传统笙; pinyin: chuántǒng shēng) and keyed sheng (键笙; jiàn shēng). Keyed shengs have only been developed in the 20th century, c. 1950 onwards.
The difference between a traditional and keyed sheng lies in its mechanism. On a traditional sheng, the holes on the finger pipes are pressed directly by the player's fingers. On a keyed sheng, the holes are opened and closed by means of keys or levers. Without keys, the great number of pipes, and the size of the larger instruments makes it impractical for operation by hand.

Traditional sheng

The traditional sheng (传统, pinyin: chuántǒng shēng) used in, for example, northern Chinese ritual music, kunqu and Jiangnan sizhu ensembles generally have 17 pipes but with only 13 or 14 sounding pipes. Its scale is mainly diatonic, for example the 17 pipe (4 silent) sheng used in Jiangnan sizhu is tuned:
\relative c'' { a b c cis d e fis g a b cis d}
0:00
[5]
With the development of guoyue music in mid-20th century China, the sheng underwent changes to increase its range and volume. The guoyue sheng had all its 17 pipes fitted with reeds, then the number of pipes increased to 21, and metal tubes were attached to the bamboo pipes to amplify its sound. The other change was the development of the keyed sheng.

\relative c' { d e fis g a b c cis d e f fis g gis a b c cis d e fis}
0:00

Keyed sheng

Chromatic 24 and 26 pipe keyed sheng were common during the 1950s, but current models usually have 36 pipes. There are four main ranges of keyed sheng, forming a family of soprano, alto, tenor and bass. All are chromatic throughout their range, and tuned to the equal temperament scale.
  • Gaoyin sheng (, pinyin Gāoyīn Shēng)
    36-pipe sheng with a soprano range of G3 to F#6 (taking middle C = C4). Uses treble clef
  • Zhongyin sheng (, pinyin Zhōngyīn Shēng)
    36-pipe sheng with an alto range of C3 to B5. Perfect 5th lower than gaoyin sheng. It has an additional row of 12 keys coloured in black, which when depressed plays all 3 pipes corresponding to the same note in different octaves. e.g., pressing the black "C" causes the notes C3, C4 and C5 to be sounded simultaneously. Uses treble and alto clefs.
  • Cizhongyin sheng (, pinyin Cìzhōngyīn Shēng)
    36-pipe sheng with a tenor range of G2 to F#5. One octave lower than soprano sheng. Uses alto clef, or treble clef transposed down an octave. The cizhingyin sheng can also be used as diyin sheng.
  • Diyin sheng (, pinyin Dīyīn Shēng)
    32-pipe sheng with a bass range of C2 to G4. Uses bass clef.
Much larger types of keyed sheng include the da paisheng (lit. large row sheng); a large floor standing organ-like instrument with foot pedals, and the baosheng (lit. held sheng), which is played resting on the player’s lap or on a stand.

Notable players

  • Feng Haiyun (冯海云) (who is a professor at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing).
  • Hu Tianquan (胡天泉) - introduced technical improvements on the construction of the instrument
  • Guo Wanpeng (郭万鹏)
  • Guo Yi (郭艺).
  • Wang Zhengting (王正亭)
  • Weng Zhenfa (翁鎮發) (who features in the Chinese music documentary A Farewell Song)
  • Wu Tong (吴彤)

Mountain View, CA

Mountain View is a city in Santa Clara County, in the Bay Area of California. It is named for its views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.[8] From its origins as a stagecoach stop, it grew to a model suburb with a pedestrian-friendly downtown, free wi-fi, and a population of 74,066. The city borders on Moffett Federal Airfield and the San Francisco Bay.
Situated in Silicon Valley, Mountain View is home to many high technology companies. In 1956, Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory, the first company to develop silicon semiconductor devices in what came to be known as Silicon Valley, was established in the city by William Shockley. Today, many of the largest technology companies in the world are headquartered in the city, including Google, Mozilla Foundation, Symantec, Symphony Teleca and Intuit. The original Byte Shop, computer store was opened at 1063, El Camino Real, Mt. View by Paul Terrell and the first 50 Apple I Computer were delivered and sold from that location. The city's tax base helps support public education. Local transportation networks integrate the city closely with the neighboring cities of Palo Alto, Los Altos, and Sunnyvale.

History

The Historic Adobe Building was constructed as a Works Progress Administration project in 1934.
The Mexican land grant of Rancho Pastoria de las Borregas was given in 1842 by Alta California Governor Juan Alvarado to Francisco Estrada. This grant was later passed on to Mariano Castro, who sold half of the land to Martin Murphy, Jr. Eventually, the former land grant became the cities of Mountain View and Sunnyvale.
Mountain View had its beginnings in the late 19th century as a stagecoach stop on the route between San Francisco and San Jose, including the Butterfield Overland Mail. Incorporated on November 7, 1902, the town's early growth was due to agriculture, which remained the primary industry into the middle of the 20th century. After World War II, the population grew significantly with the development of the aerospace and electronics industries.[9] Between 1950 and 1960, the population grew from 6,563 to 30,889, an increase of 370.7%.
Today, high technology is the foundation of the local economy, and there exist few remnants of the city's agricultural past. In 1990, Kevin Duggan began his position as city manager. He built a relationship with Google, Inc., and issued a long-term lease to that and other technology companies. As of 2014, those leases generate over $5 million per year in city revenue. Duggan reinstituted a special tax district for the Shoreline area, which was a landfill and pig farm in 1990. That money allowed the city to create a large park and golf course on the site. The Castro Street downtown area also benefitted from a special tax district.[10]

Geography

Mountain View is located at 37°25′19″N 122°5′4″W (37.42223, −122.08429).[11]
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 12.3 sq mi (31.8 km2). 12.0 sq mi (31.1 km2) of it is land and 0.27 sq mi (0.7 km2) of it (2.26%) is water.
Mountain View is located at the north end of State Route 85, where it meets U.S. Route 101. State Route 82 follows the route of the historic El Camino Real through Mountain View. The city is bounded to the northwest by Palo Alto, to the southwest by Los Altos, to the southeast by Sunnyvale, to the northeast by Moffett Federal Airfield, and to the north by the Bay.
To the west lie the Santa Cruz Mountains, for which the city is named and which separate it from the Pacific Ocean. To the east lies the Diablo Range. Both ranges, which together form the boundaries of the Santa Clara Valley, are visible from many parts of the city.
Most of Mountain View consists of residential neighborhoods. Business parks are located mostly in the North Shoreline neighborhood, north of Highway 101, and east of Highway 85.

our flaws

our flaws, according to Robert Browning,
are---trying too hard to deny the
fairness on people circulating in social
media, provided that what's to be changed,--
but, finding out
what's could be; the conclusions lay
on individuals experiences, thus
how to make it agreeable to cell,
which is a hard job.
.
personal space is vital to everybody,
let broadcasting be passing days,
let headlines be guilding light,
our flaws, then, are paper tug boats.

Everyone Is Someone!

 believe it or not,
everyone has dilemma,
forgive me that I have done a lot
to catch up.
.
Everyone is someone,
if encouraged,
if blessed,
we all behave divine.
.
instead of extraordinary,
I pick ordinary,
instead of blue,
I choose wearing yellow.
.
Nobody is a fool,
if grounded,
if restricted,
None can act cool.

the fat cat

how odd
a cat comes to my feet,
asking for love.
.
he has white and black hair,
balloon alike tummy,
and fierce eyes.
.
"meow."
he screams.
"go home."
i say, not willing to trans pass his boss
.
an angry act appears via his sharp paw,
that's the end of our war,
because the fat cat
scratching my leg all of a sudden,
just like that,
i am forced to close my door,
not his fault!
