Learning to play the piano is not something that everyone is motivated to do. It has been suggested in various studies that those who learn a musical instrument will think clearer and do better in all other aspects of studies. That’s why learning the piano is a fabulous accomplishment to achieve. Not everyone can simply learn piano overnight, though. In fact, it takes a few tools for someone to master before the piano can be learned.

The first thing one might need when wanting to learn how to play the piano is, of course, a piano. Any sort of piano will do. It could be electric, an antique or a brand new piano right out of the shop. Do to their expense and their large, heavy frame; it’s not best to rent one. Instead, invest in purchasing one in order to be able to spend adequate time practicing. Many start out with an electric keyboard and move forward from there. The point is that no one can adequately learn to play an instrument without that instrument.

The second thing one will need in order to learn the piano properly is a piano tuner. Hiring someone to make sure the piano is in tune is imperative. Many people learn to play by ear. It is impossible to learn adequately if the piano is out of key. They can go out of key due to several factors. The most prominent factor is the fact that they have been sitting for a long period of time without being played. It is not terribly expensive to hire someone to do piano tuning and is definitely suggested.

Another fabulous tool for learning the piano is the metronome. These are time keepers that help the piano player keep their timing with the music. Many who play the piano have a tendency to play much faster than the music actually calls for. This can become a problem in recitals and especially duets. Metronomes are not terribly expensive and can be purchased online or in nearly any piano shop.

Lastly, a very helpful tool for learning the piano is having a teacher or tutor of some sort. Online websites are getting better and better with their training methods. Videos and instruction manuals can be purchased for a small monthly fee to make learning flexible for anyone who is anxious to learn on their own time. Of course, for those who prefer to stay away from the internet, a piano teacher is another alternative as well. Either way, it’s important to equip oneself with the necessary tools for learning the piano.

The techniques used in musical concert are only used to enhance the mood of the music being played. Whether its indoor or outdoor these lighting techniques uses subtleties in order to highlight the band playing without being to overwhelming.

Are you looking for something new for you landscaping? Concert lighting outdoors could be the special addition you need. Here are some tips to help you with your concert outdoor lighting.

Rule #1 Back Lights

If we compare concert outdoor lighting to real concert lighting, the major difference is that during a real concert, most of the light comes from the front, they use big spotlights and flood lights to illuminate the center of the action. Has for concert outdoor lighting the light should always come from behind what you are trying to illuminate. You see your goal is to establish a relaxing mood and identify what you are trying to light at the same time. You will achieve this by placing the lights behind, creating an interesting play of shadow and light.

Rule #2 Whos the star?

Most of the time musical formations have a leader; this leader is the one we see the most. This rule can also be applied to your concert outdoor lighting; we will need to determine what the masterpiece of your concert outdoor lighting setup is. It could be things like:

-Decorative fountain
-Your prize Rosebush
-Or any other part of your landscape.

But choose the one that you like the most. This is where we deviate from the rule #1. This center piece alone is the only one who is allowed to have any light come from the front, this is the only exception.

Rule #4 Colors are important

One of the most important factors about your concert outdoor lighting is colors. Most people dont realize that the color of your lighting plays an important role in the mood you are trying to create. This is easily achievable since today most outdoor lighting fixtures are available with LED displays, which can easily, at very little cost, provide color to your concert outdoor lighting.

Rule #5 – Use Variety and Simplicity

To create an amazing display of light you will need to use different and complementary colors for your back lights. The same goes for what you will use to illuminate your centerpiece. The goal here is to set the mood without illuminating too much, this is very important. Dont fall in the trap of illuminating too much, this will create glare and your concert outdoor lighting setup will be too bright to look at in the dark. As I said, use color for your back lights to set a relaxing mood.

Make sure you follow These 5 basics rules, doing this will make sure you have an amazing outdoor concert lighting display.

Susie Wolff will have her first full Formula 1 test at the wheel of a Williams in this week’s ‘young-driver’ test at Silverstone.

The Scot will drive on Friday, with race driver Pastor Maldonado in action on Thursday, while Spaniard Daniel Juncadella is set to test on Wednesday.

Teams are being allowed to run race drivers for one day at the test on 17-19 July to evaluate new tyres.

Wolff, 30, is currently the development driver for Williams.

She raced in the DTM German touring car championship for seven years before quitting the series to concentrate on her work with the British outfit.

Susie Wolff

Susie Wolff

Born: 6/12/82, Oban, Scotland

Role: Williams development driver

Previous racing experience: 2006-12 DTM German touring cars. Always driving at least a year-old car; best result ninth. 2005 – Formula Three in UK; 2001-4 – Formula Renault in UK

Married to Toto Wolff, Mercedes director of motorsport and executive director (business) Mercedes F1 team. Shareholder in Williams

It is not the first time Wolff has driven an F1 car – she had a familiarisation test with Williams last October and was the first to drive the team’s 2013 car this year at an aerodynamic test in February, and described the Silverstone test as “a fantastic opportunity”.

Wolff added: “It’s going to be a big challenge but the most important thing is to do a solid and consistent job and to give good feedback to the team to be able to prove I am at the level to compete on a day such as this.

“Most of my work is based in the simulator which is why this day is so important for me.

“It will give me a better understanding of what the car is like on track and how that correlates to the simulator which will also help further develop the work I can do there.

“I am not naive enough to think it will be easy. I know it’s going to be tough and a big challenge but the team have prepared me well and I just need to believe in myself. I will go out there and do the best I can.”

The last woman to enter the F1 world championship was Italian Giovanna Amati, who failed to qualify for three races with Brabham in 1992 before being dropped. The last woman to race an F1 car was Italian Lella Lombardi in 1976.

Only two other teams have so far confirmed their line-ups.

Lotus will use Kimi Raikkonen on the final day of the test with Frenchman Nicolas Prost – the son of four-time world champion Alain Prost – driving on Wednesday and reserve driver Davide Valsecchi on Thursday.

McLaren and Red Bull have chosen not to use their race drivers.

Reserve driver Gary Paffett (Friday) and young drivers Kevin Magnussen and Oliver Turvey will test the McLaren.

Portuguese Antonio Felix Da Costa, a contender for a Toro Rosso seat in 2014, will take the first two days for Red Bull, with Spain’s Carlos Sainz coming in on Friday.

Sauber will use Nico Hulkenberg on Thursday, and split the rest of its programme between reserve driver Robin Frijns and Japanese former Formula 3 driver Kimiya Sato.

The ‘young-driver’ test is an attempt to allow teams to try out drivers who have not yet raced in F1 – the rules dictate that those taking part must have competed in no more than two grands prix.

But this stipulation was waived following the problems at the British Grand Prix to allow Pirelli to try out its new tyre design on the track that had caused the most problems.

A series of problems all contributed to six drivers suffering blowouts during the race.

Although Pirelli said the manner in which the teams were operating the tyres was partially to blame, the biggest single cause is believed to have been a weakness in the construction of the 2013 tyre at the shoulder, where the sidewall meets the tread.

Pirelli has decided to revert to the construction used in 2012,which has a stronger shoulder, from the Hungarian Grand Prix, but combined with the softer rubber compounds used so far in 2013.

As there were no similar problems last year, none are expected with the new design, but the Silverstone test gives Pirelli a chance to make sure before the teams reach the races at Spa in Belgium and Suzuka in Japan, which make even more extreme demands of the tyres.

Mercedes will not feature at the test because of their ban for taking part in the controversial Pirelli tyre test.

You have patiently waited for the arrival of your new baby. Now that your baby is here, its time to start keeping track of each milestone in your babys life. Youd love to have precious mementos of your babys first days in this world. You can make that happen, you can capture the sweet essence of your baby, with professional newborn photography.

Why Go Professional.

Sure, its easy to take photos of your baby on your own. If you cant manage it yet, there are probably family members, relatives, or friends who are willing to whip out their digital camera, or even their smart phones or tabs, and take as many shots of your baby, as you allow.

Theres nothing wrong with doing that. After all, celebrating a newborns existence has been one of humanitys longest cherished rituals. Taking photographs is part of the ritual in these modern times.

But lets face it, not everyone has a keen sense of what it takes to have a beautiful photograph come out. So many things can affect the outcome of a photo, from the lighting conditions to sudden movements. Common mistakes often result in red eyes, a lack of headroom (making your baby look squashed or disproportionate), or even an insipid, and totally unflattering shot.

Thats the major reason that you need professional newborn photography for your baby. A professional photographer has the knowledge, experience, and skills to make your newborn appear as lovable in photographs, as is the case in real life.

Studio Session vs. Home Shoot.

Sometimes, it can be hard deciding on where to hold the photo. Should it be held in the photographers studio or is it preferable to do in the comfort of your home?

Several factors will come into play as you make your decision. One factor that you need to consider is the sensitivity of your baby to change. Some babies dont like prolonged movements, such as what happens during the trip from your home to the photo studio, no matter how comfortable you try to make them. Babies, even newborns, can sense when they are taken out of their comfort zone. Should this be the case, its best to hold the photo session at home.

On the other hand, a professional photographer will be able to do a full set up considerably in the studio, since all the lights, backgrounds, equipment, and other materials are already within reach. To be very sure about which option would be great for you and your baby during the newborn photography session, discuss this matter well with your photographer.

What to Prepare.

Before having your baby photographed, you should also clear up these matters with your photographer:

How long will the session be?
How many changes of clothing should you bring? The answer to this will have a lot to do with whether or not you and your photographer are going to go for a theme look for your baby.
Will the photographer make allowances in time if your baby becomes fussy or irritable? If not, will the photographer charge you extra for a re-schedule?

Other loved ones who may wish to be present during the photo session may have their own ideas and suggestions.

As a general rule, it is the parents and/or the primary caregiver whose intentions should be honored. Do your best not to be overwhelmed by the well-meaning suggestions of others.

By putting your trust in your newborn photography expert, youll never regret in the years to come that you hired a professional to take care of capturing your babys sweet essence for keeps, as perfectly as possible.

The Paleo diet is based on the ancient dietary habits of our ancestors in the Stone Age era. They did not have access to all of the food sources that we have today and this diet encourages us to stick with the same basic food groups they had. These are meat, seafood, fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds. These will form the basis of the Paleo diet and it will allow you to create delicious, healthy meals for yourself and your whole family.

Meat products will be abundant in this diet; and although you can choose from a variety of sources, try to avoid the fatty cuts such as chicken wings, bacon and pork sausages. Eggs can be eaten, but try to limit this to no more than 6 per week. These were available to the cavemen in those times, but it was a scarce food source so you should eat these accordingly. A healthy and popular meal is an omelette; which can be made with veggies such as mushrooms, onions and tomatoes. It is a great breakfast option and it is also a high protein meal. When you choose other meat products, make sure that they are from lean sources; preferably from grass or pasture fed animals.

There are of course certain food groups that one should avoid altogether while on the Paleo diet. These are dairy products, grains, processed foods and fatty meats. Since these were not available in the Paleolithic era, we should not consume these at all. Grains to avoid include pasta, barley, rice cakes and oatmeal. Even if the label says wheat free you should still avoid it. Pasta, rice, cakes and pudding are also on the avoid list. Dairy products like milk, cheese, yoghurt, ice cream and butter cannot be eaten and should not be used in any meal. As a basic rule of thumb, if our ancestors did not eat it, we should not either!

Although it might seem that Paleo Food lists are a bit restricted, there are still a lot of delicious meals to enjoy. Fruit and vegetables make up a large part of your daily meal plan and you can easily add a variety of these to any meal. You can also snack on fresh fruit throughout the day. As for veggies, you can pretty much eat anything except the starchy ones like potatoes. You can grab a handful of nuts or seeds during the day or in-between meals to help keep hunger at bay. You can also add them to salads and desserts too.

The Paleo diet also increases your metabolism over time; allowing you to lose additional weight. Research has shown that this diet can help you lose up to 15 pounds in 6 months. It will stabilize your blood sugar, reduce hunger and improve your digestive system as well. You will get all the benefits of living a healthy life while on the Paleo diet; and it is suitable for the whole family too.

Getting scared is the ultimate fantasy of a person’s mind. People often complain that they they are being chased by some one, or there is some one behind the door of their rooms. Some people feel that they might get killed in bathtub or some even have fears from sleeping alone. These all are signs of getting scared, but in reality do people fear from something. Normally a human mind is quite inquisitive in nature and if people say they hate getting scared, then actually most of them are wrong. Most of the time when mothers ask their children to stay away from something, they never listen to her. Reason, well they always want to experiment with new things which can be referred as inquisitiveness and same goes with horror books. A human mind loves getting scared, and that is the perception that horror books publishers exploit when they introduce a book in the market.

Horror books are quite a subtle way of facing the fears from any man made character who has a scary presence or face. These are the ways where people can actually see the blue black characters of their dreams in virtual reality. Horror books like The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson, The Haunting of Hill house by Shirley Jackson, Night Shift by Stephen King and many more are today rated as one of the best horror books in modern times.

The description of characters, situations and scenes is so vivid in these books that as a reader, you some time feel that you are actually one of the character of the book and all this is happening in front of your own eyes. These horror books actually challenge the human inside the readers body, this is the main reason why most of the people prefer not to read horror books, as they get affected very easily. Dark feasts by Ramsay Campbell is one book that many critics have declared as the best work ever done on the subject of horror books.

These days people can buy the top horror bestsellers even on Online mode. People can even pay for these cheap books via debit cards, credit cards and even in cash.
