Proof Proof by David Auburn is a dramatic play about genius and madness and how close these two really are to each other. Three of the four characters Auburn uses are gifted mathematicians: one was certified, one close to being certified, and one who has the mental capacity to be certified. These three character are, in respect to their level of certification, Robert, Harold, and Catherine. Robert, Catherine’s father, was at one time a genius mathematician and after completing his best work in his early twenties, he starting going insane. He had obtained a mental illness over time, but he was never put into a mental institution or anywhere else of that type.
The Babylonians used π at a value of 25/8 while the Egyptians used it at a value of 256/81. There is little doubt that the biblical calculations came from crude measurements but there is strong support that the Babylonians and Egyptians found π by using mathematical equations. The Greeks first focus on π was around 434 BC when mathematician Anaxagor made an unsuccessful attempt at finding π which he called squaring the circle. It took the Greeks over 100 years of study to find a value for π. In 240 BC, Archimedes of Syracuse concluded his study of π with 223/71<π<22/7.
Fortunately, Meade was inspired by boogie-woogie pianist Jimmy Yancey and decided to switch to piano after his father died. Lewis ended up teaching himself, like most boogie-woogie artists, how to play the piano. This lends some insight into how his style, and that of boogie-woogie was developed, and why it has nearly no relation to classic European music. The reason for this is that the artists that played boogie-woogie were attempting to imitate the guitar technique used in logging camps that where one guitar would play a melody, a second guitar would play rhythmic chords, and the third guitar would play a bass line. This is imitated by the right hand playing the melody and the left hand playing the bass and rhythm.
The second study, challenged the first study with the argument that any type of music appreciated can cause the same memory effect. The second study, built itself on an experiment with unborn mice that heard Mozart’s piano sonata K448. The other half of the study was related to the effects of Mozart’s piano sonata K448 on patients who were suffering from seizures. The conclusion was that Mozart’s piano sonata K448 has encouraging effects on animals and humans. Research or conducting an experiment is the actual way to get correct data.
There’s a nice piano, bass and drum accompaniment that help to establish the laid-back feel of the music. I quite like Adam’s musical style as it has lots of variety and unique techniques to it that other music doesn’t really have. It’s very groovy and it can make you want to dance, rest or chill out to it. He plays with such propulsive intensity that leaves audience’s wonderstruck and engaged to keep
Despite Christopher’s disability, he has extremely talented math skills and a great photographic memory. A subplot of the story is Christopher’s attempt to reach the next level in math. Numbers and mathematical equations bring Christopher comfort. When he is scared or stressed, Christopher will do equations in his head or count by multiples or prime numbers. Through this, Haddon is explaining how autistic people have certain talents or hobbies that they are experts in.
I mentioned that you could listen to Frank Sinatra anytime you wanted by using Pandora. You looked at me funny because your first thought was jewelry. I explained to you that Pandora is a website that you can type in an artists’ name and all of their soundtracks are listed for you to play. I also, told you about ITunes, which by the way, you thought was some type of toy. You were amazed that you could buy music instantly on the computer, and are able to play music seconds later.
He also penned three novels, a full-length autobiography and a number of articles and letters-to-the-editor on a number of subjects (PBS.org, 2013). Sousa was a vocal advocate for music education, so much so, that when Thomas Edison introduced the recording machine, Sousa is quoted as having said “The time is coming when no one will be ready to submit himself to the ennobling discipline of learning music. Everyone will have their ready made or ready pirated music in their cupboards.” (Stabler, D. 2007). This prediction was one that unfortunately would come true, for in 1900, most American homes had at least one musical instrument, people were buying sheet music instead of phonograph records; by the 1950’s, almost all of the music was being made by professionals and few families gathered around pianos any more (Stabler, 2007). While the recording machine has done a lot for preserving folk music from yesteryear, it is sad that more people don’t work to develop some sort of musical talent.
In March of 1948, she signed her second contract with Columbia Pictures. Monroe only got one film during this contract, “Ladies of the Chorus,” and when that
Though Wellers composed many tunes he sold them for very little money so when the tunes became famous other artist assumed full credits for the tunes. Being known as the man who made the piano sing Waller’s was also known for his generosity and the joy he would bring to a room. Waller would also play Bach organ pieces for small group setting on occasions. After his sudden death in 1943 from Pneumonia Fats Waller’s legacy still live on in the many form of music and film for his hit Ain’t Misbehaving and many other
