The MP3 audio format is riddled with problems. Limitations include:
About two years ago I bought a guitar starter kit. It came with a black and white Ibanez Gio, headphones, a guitar tuner, guitar picks and an Ibanez GTA15R amplifier. At the time I could barely hold a guitar right. In my spare time I would mess with it and try playing easy guitar tabs. Two years later I have a firm grasp on the basics of the guitar without lengthy practice sessions and expensive guitar lessons. Though both the guitar and the amp are very basic pieces of equipment I have found that they are durable and reliable. I treated my amp and my guitar roughly but they never stopped working. Ibanez is like the AK47 of guitar equipment. Though not the best, nor the flashiest, you can fire it up no matter what. I have remained happy with the product and consider it one of my most worthwhile, economic purchases that allowed me to learn the basic guitar. Ibanez is the ideal guitar brand for everyone new to guitar.
Below are the stats from: http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/GRX40
|GRX40 BKN (For more images see below)|
The Ibanez GRX40, also known as the GRX40A in Japan, is a GIO RX series entry level electric guitar model, introduced in 2000. Features are a SSH pickup configuration and a synchronized tremolo. Produced simultaneously in China and in Indonesia, multiple versions of this guitar exist for the different markets. It is part of the GRX40J and IJX40 (US)Jumpstart packages also containing a practice amp and various accessories.
Four different pickup sets are known for this guitar. Whether these pickups really differ or are just the same pickups with different names is not clear.
|Neck Pickup||Mid Pickup||Bridge Pickup|
|Set 4||Single Coil||Single Coil||Humbucking|
In a previous post I discussed the dangers surrounding immediate exposure to a vacuum in space. This post focuses on the effects of space travel on a human being.
First and foremost, ultraviolet radiation from the sun can cause sunburns in a matter of seconds. Radiation poses a big problem to astronauts. Astronauts who spend a year in low-orbit are exposed to ten times the radiation that is normal on Earth. This is due to the lack of atmosphere and magnetosphere protection. This heavy exposure to radiation leads to lymphocyte damage. As a result astronauts have weaker immune systems. Radiation has also been linked to a higher incidence of cataracts. Astronauts are also exposed to galactic cosmic rays, which significantly increase the chance of cancer. In addition solar flare events can deliver a lethal dose of radiation within minutes.
This is a book I wrote a long time ago. Though most would call it a stoner comedy I venture to call it something more: There is always a story to be told. Well, I wrote a story and then some. Rife with smoking sessions, crude jokes, philosophical views about the world as an aggregate and a little existentialism to even the keel this is more than a book my friends. This is the metaphorical blood etched on the papyrus. I encourage you to check it out not only because I wrote it but because I earnestly think you will enjoy it. Check out the sample at the very least.
Dance with the Devil is a playlist I made a while back. Enjoy.
Humans have long had a fascination with the cosmos but for the first time in human history widespread human space travel is becoming a possibility. The last frontier will be inhibited by a large number of human beings one day but right now most people know very little about this hostile environment. Human beings have to go to extraordinary lengths to protect themselves from the ever-present dangers that are present in a complete vacuum.
While the body doesn’t explode or turn inside when exposed to a complete vacuum, severe changes will occur. The first change is the explosive decompression of gas in the digestive tract and the lungs. In space there is no external pressure so the gases inside a body will expand rapidly. The chance of a fatality is greatly reduced if the victim exhales within the first seconds of exposure. If the victim holds their breath the lungs are likely to rupture and release air bubbles into the circulatory system. Another problem associated with lack of external pressure in space is water vaporization. In a vacuum water boils instantly. When a human is exposed to outer space the moisture in a victim’s mouth and eyes will boil away. Moisture in soft tissues and muscles will evaporate, causing areas of the body to swell to twice their normal size. This would not break the skin of the victim.
Direct exposure to sunlight would cause instant sunburns on the victim. Heat transfers out of the body very slowly in space, due to the lack of a medium. While space is cold freezing to death is not an immediate risk. In addition nitrogen in the blood forms bubbles, resulting in the bends. The victim will be conscious for approximately ten seconds after initial exposure. Brain asphyxiation will set in quickly. Without air pressure the lungs will expel oxygen from the blood and accelerate the state of hypoxia. A victim will soon experience a loss of vision, impaired judgment and a rapid temperature drop in the mouth and nose. Unconsciousness and convulsions soon set in. Cyanosis (blue discoloration of skin) soon occurs.
After unconsciousness the brain will still be undamaged and the heart will continue to beat. If pressurized oxygen is administered within ninety seconds of this a complete recovery can occur. If the victim goes any longer without oxygen their blood will boil and their heart will stop beating. There is no recovery from this event.
