A New Acoustic Instrument That Creates Sounds like a Digital Synthesizer

The Yabahar can be played in a variety of different ways using mallets or with a bow, relying on a combination of two drum-like membranes, long springs, and a tall fretted neck to create music.

MAT™ is a technique that helps athletes recover from competitive stress quickly and help them prevent future injuries.

Muscle Activation Techniques

MAT™ prepares the body to be more efficient in training and athletic performance. In order to reach optimal performance capabilities, an athlete is forced to train at high intensity levels. Because of this, there is always the risk for injury. Some athletes may be predisposed to an injury, due to muscular contraction inefficiencies that place increased stress on joints and tissues.

When training at a high level, the inefficiencies are magnified, and sometimes the body can no longer handle the stress, eventually breaking down. The goal of MAT™ is to address the weakness before an injury occurs. Duchess Grows 'Poison Garden' That Can Kill. Out in the Open: The Site That Teaches You to Code Well Enough to Get a Job.

(Japanese: golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (金繕い?) (Japanese: golden repair) is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique.[1][2][3] As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Origin[edit] Lacquerware is a longstanding tradition in Japan,[4][5] at some point it may have been combined with maki-e as a replacement for other ceramic repair techniques.

Sex (Or Not) And the Japanese Single

Compare this to Japan, a country where, according to a recent survey, a third of young men have no interest in sex. Moreover, 50% of young women are not dating. The Curious Case of the Poisoned Umbrella: The Murder of Georgi Markov « The View East.

This week marks 33 years since the murder of Bulgarian dissident Georgi Markov, who was poisoned in London on 7 September 1978.

The Curious Case of the Poisoned Umbrella: The Murder of Georgi Markov « The View East

Markov’s assassination, an operation conducted by the Bulgarian Secret Services (the Darzhavna Sigurnost or DS) under the guidance of the Soviet KGB, contained all the essential ingredients of a Cold War spy thriller: mystery, intrigue, nameless, faceless assassins and a nifty James Bond style gadget used as a murder weapon. Markov’s murder also led to widespread outrage and concern – after all, he was killed in the centre of London, in broad daylight, during rush hour, by communist secret agents who appeared to be able to kill with impunity, before vanishing into thin air … Scientists Use Mathematical Shortcut to Create New Metals.
