No, our children are going to catch up with those East Asian kids on their own damn time. Every parent I know in New York City comments on how much homework their children have. Well, imagine if after putting in a full day at the office—and school is pretty much what our children do for a job—you had to come home and do another four or so hours of office work. Monday through Friday. Plus Esmee gets homework every weekend. If your job required that kind of work after work, how long would you last? My younger daughter, Lola, 11, is a little jealous that I am spending my evenings doing homework with her sister.
She agrees with this, but still makes me feel so guilty about it that I let her watch Pretty Little Liars , her favorite show. There is also a Spanish test tomorrow on irregular verbs. The algebra is fast becoming my favorite part of this project. I may have picked an easy week, but something about combining like terms, inverting negative exponents, and then simplifying equations causes a tingle in a part of my brain that is usually dormant. Also, the work is finite: just 12 equations. The Spanish, however, presents a completely different challenge. My daughter has done a commendable job memorizing the conjugations.
I spend a few minutes looking over the material, attempting to memorize the list of verbs and conjugations. Then it takes me about half an hour to memorize the three most common conjugation patterns. I decide to skip the irregular verbs.
Some cd or dvd? Shipped from UK. Published by Createspace True, Riley said that the ultimate goal of music is "to get far out", but for composers in the field as diverse in orientation as Glass and Andriessen the prospect of the audience just switching off - not actively concentrating - is quite abhorrent. The distinguishing feature about these pieces as opposed to the earlier process works is their concern with multiple process: the rigid polemic laid down by Reich in is no longer applicable Skip to content Photo, Andrei Z I try to be both a classical musician and a jazz musician. Also what you may want to do is get a word in your head that matches the feel of the tune and just repeat those.
Esmee already worked on her Spanish this afternoon, so she goes right to the Humanities project, which she has been looking forward to. She takes a shower, then reads in bed for a few minutes before nodding off at about One evening when Esmee was in sixth grade, I walked into her room at a.
One assignment had her calculating the area and perimeter of a series of shapes so complex that my wife, who trained as an architect in the Netherlands, spent half an hour on it before coming up with the right answers. The problem was not the complexity of the work, it was the amount of calculating required. Another exercise required Esmee to find the distance from Sacramento—we were living in California—to every other state capital in America, in miles and kilometers.
This last one caused me to question the value of the homework. She explained that this sort of cross-disciplinary learning—state capitals in a math class—was now popular.

She added that by now, Esmee should know all her state capitals. She went on to say that in class, when the students had been asked to name the capital of Texas, Esmee answered Texas City. The teacher was unmoved, saying that she felt the homework load was reasonable. If Esmee was struggling with the work, then perhaps she should be moved to a remedial class. There is little to no coordination among teachers in most schools when it comes to assignments and test dates. The class had prepared dioramas of the role women played in the Revolution, the Boston Massacre, the Battle of Yorktown, and other signal events of the period.
In hand-drawn murals explaining the causes of the conflict, the main theme was that excessive and unfair taxation had caused the colonies to rebel. The British had run up massive debts in the French and Indian War and wanted the colonists to repay them.
The colonies also wanted, several children added, freedom. This algebra unit, on polynomials, seems to be a matter of remembering a few tricks. Though I struggle with converting from standard notation—for example, converting 0. Earth Science is something else. And tonight, the chapter starts in the familiar dispiriting monotone. The accompanying charts are helpful, and as I keep reading into the chapter on igneous rocks, the differences between intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks make clear sense.
The upcoming test in Humanities will focus on John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, monopolies and trusts, laissez-faire capitalism, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, the foundation of labor unions, the imposition of factory safety standards, and the populist response to the grim conditions of the working man during the Industrial Revolution. My daughter has a study guide she is ready to print out.
But our printer has just broken. The logistics of picking up the printer, bringing it over to our apartment, downloading the software, and then printing take about half an hour. The study guide covers a wide range of topics, from how Rockefeller gained control of the oil industry, to the rise of monopolies and trusts, to the Sherman Antitrust Act, to the Triangle Shirtwaist fire. Esmee and I have a pretty long talk about the causes of the tragedy—the locked doors that prevented the young girls from taking breaks, stealing merchandise, or escaping the flames; the flammable waste material that had been allowed to accumulate—that leads to a discussion about trade unionism and then about capitalism in general.
Freedom, in the form of unfettered capitalism, also has its downside. I tell her my view: laborers have to organize into unions, because otherwise those who control the capital have all the power. My daughter has the misfortune of living through a period of peak homework. It turns out that there is no correlation between homework and achievement.

LeTendre and David P. Swing is a feeling, open to interpretation, and our grooveboxes allow us to interpret that by moving every second 16th back and forward on the grid. Swing is not necessarily notated as rigidly as your example. Many musicians will say that swing cannot be accurately notated, only felt.
Ive seen it notated at the top of sheet music.
You cant adapt words to how you feel they mean tbh. Shuffle is a specialised case of Swing. Yes Swing can be notated as you say. Yes Swing is also a style of music that used shuffle and swing rhythms - but yeah - you need to dig a bit deeper before calling this out bruv. But really the terms have been often used interchangeably by various manufacturers so it is easy to see why people get mixed up, just like polyrhythms vs polymeter.
You have it right. But I do more straight time stuff anyway. Notation, as you suggest, can give a general idea of swings and shuffles, but even a jazz chart is just going to notate it in straight time and tell you to swing it. Or shuffle it. How it comes out is a matter of interpretation. Ah fuck of course!
nonfootbcherwitchni.cf A computer musician similarly alters the pattern to emphasize a particular beat. Maybe the only significant difference is that a drummer is more physical in order to evoke an elevated spirit through music, whereas a computer musician is more mindful and less physical, in order to attain a similar expression in the physicality of sound, without so much muscular exertion.
Doesn't mean it's not worth trying to bridge the gap between computers and human musicians, but it's as yet hard to train machines to do some things that a five-year-old can do. Great video!!!
