b. How much time passes between low tide and the next high tide? The earth rotates through two tidal bulges in one lunar day, which is 24 hours and fifty minutes long. The time between a high tide and the next is twelve hours and twenty five minutes.

Holly was inspired by this and learned many ways to sway the crowd and get them to fall in love with his entertaining music. They got a contract in Nashville for Decca, after they performed on the local radio station KDVA. They also released several songs as Holly in the Hills before their contract (Romanowski & George-Warren, 2001). The bands start took a little longer than they expected, but they were happy when they got their start. The band had to think of a name before they got their break.
One way Elvis Presley propelled himself into superstardom was his mix of blues, R&B, country, and rockabilly. Although some adults of the generation found this music to be too dangerous for the mainstream, many teenages of the day found this new music to be very exciting and electrifying. In a way this made Elvis even more popular in the eyes of his now large and constantly growing

Music has always been a part of my life. In definition, it is “vocal or instrumental sounds combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.” Ever since I was a young child, I have loved music. The strong, steady beats, the entrancing melodies, and the lyrics that vary between heartwarming and heart-wrenching have always had an unexplainable effect on my life. Music seems to have the ability to change certain aspects of my world.
This quote deeply resonated with me when I first watched the episode and still does to this day. With that said, I'm going to skip over roughly the first 18 years of my life but hopefully give you a clearer vision of my the past 5 years. Throughout this time, I've had my share of ups and downs and it shows on my academic record; however, if I did not have these experiences it
This takes us back to 1582; a time in history where time was changed (Source 2). One of the calendars introduced in 46 BC was the Julian calendar. Each year was made up of 365 1/4 days. It exceeded the actual solar year which was 365.2422 days by eleven minutes and fourteen seconds each year. Without realizing the conflict it would bring, by the late 16th century the Julian calendar was 10 days longer than the solar calendar.

Opening night went amazing. It had to be one of the best experiences in my entire life. Hearing people laugh at my lines and actions, and hearing them cheer after my songs. I was on an adrenaline high for the rest of the night. That’s what caused me to lose my voice.
Located 12.2 billion lightyears away, the Baby Boom Galaxy was discovered by the Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology. The Baby Boom galaxy is not only a starburst galaxy, but it is known for being the world record holder for brightest starburst galaxy in the distant universe. Brightness is the measure of its extreme star formation rate. Nicknamed “the extreme stellar machine,” the galaxy produces stars at a measured rate of up to 4,000 stars per year, or one every 2.2 hours. Compared to the Milky Way Galaxy, where the Earth is located, which produces 10 stars per year on average.
This famous song, Hallelujah, was released in 1984 on Cohen’s album, Various Positions. After this huge accomplishment, Cohen then continued to release many albums. To this very day, the famous icon continues to write, sing, and even tour. This following quote from one of his pieces of poetry is a great example of Cohen’s uniqueness and determination. “For you I will be a Dachau Jew and lie down in lime with twisted limbs and bloated pain no mind can understand” From “The Spice-Box of Earth”.
“I don’t feel like I’m/ Getting through to you/ Let me paint this clear…” both music and poetry are used to portray a mood or emotion and most of the time song lyrics qualify as poetry because of the various literary devices used throughout (9-11). The theme says that no matter how bad someone gets and no matter how alone they, there is always someone there who cares about them. The lyrics themselves are very poetic and use many literary devices in order to get the somber feeling across to the reader or listener. The song portrays a character with the self-destructive, tragic flaw of drug addiction.
Throughout this weeks reading on Chapter 4, we focus in on the Progressive Era and the establishment of urban America. The industrial revolution was at its peak and the United States was developing rapidly. Immigration, manufacturing output, and urban development grew faster than any other time in the nation’s history. Not only that, but scientific developments changed lives and revolutionary theories challenged traditional beliefs. As Rury suggests, “ . . .
Between water, floods, and sea travel, water can present itself in different functions and can be symbolic especially in the readings that we were required to read this past week. Throughout the texts, water was a major factor, but the two that I felt expressed water the most were in both the Bible (Genesis) and also the Odyssey. In both of these texts water, more specifically flooding for the Bible and sea travel in the Odyssey, represented different meaning and showcased itself through different images for the readers to grasp. Just between these two stories, it’s amazing how water can not only produce different forms throughout these stories, but after analyzing can also create different symbols and representations or interpretations.
