My guitar foot rest is a multipurpose foot rest which is one of a kind. I believe Treble Cleft Musical Instrument Co will not hesitate to choose it. Here are some of the reasons why my foot rest is perfect for the music department.
The foot rest has a heel of 75mm and an adjustable toe of 140mm and 170mm. it slopes upwards heel to toe. The foot rest can be folded to a box but is still easy to store. It is stable and can survive in a high school environment. If there are ever any problems with it then repairing and rebuilding is not a problem because of the simplicity of this product.
Problems and possibilities:
Test and evaluate:
I am very happy with the final product and how it turned out because I expected my product not to work out and meet any requirements. The product took me lots of time because I kept changing my ideas. This is one of the reasons I had a late start as I did not have a specific idea.
The two biggest problems I dealt with during the creation of this foot rest are:
I couldn’t find the right idea for myself until I went into building the structure with an idea that changed in the designing process. As I was checking the height of the structure with a piece of the foam bored, I realized if this piece of foam is built inside the foot rest it would able to hold up the top and meet the required height. This encouraged me to erase all of the old ideas and built the structure with the new idea.
Another problem that was encountered was that I did not know how to cut properly. Whenever I would cut the foam board it would not end up as clean as I want it to be. All the sides and edges had a very rough finish which had to be sanded down to be fixed. The sanding partly fixed it. I also used other parts to hide these rough finishes.
If I were to do this again I would think of one idea and stick to it to get an early start. I would also…...

...going to talk about the women’s high heels; I am going to talk about the Chinese foot-binding, what cause it and what it affects. They have similar function but it’s different. High heels are the shoes of the foot, but the foot-binding is changing your foot’s shape as a high heel. You see the difference, one is shoes and one is foot. Chinese foot- binding started during song dynasty, it is a Chinese custom of wrapping women's feet with 10 feet long bandages in order to stop them from growing with age, (picture, some women went even further, turn their feet into only 3 inches long which we call it “three-inch golden lotuses.”) and give them pretty look back then. But it has caused severe life- long disability for many millions of elder women, and even in recent years. Why Chinese women want their feet to be bounded? First of all, obviously any husband doesn’t want his wife run away, if a husband hitting his wife that she couldn’t ran away because it’s very difficult to run with bounded feet. Second, having a wife like that, it’s a status symbol for men. It means you are able to let your wife just sit at home and look pretty and no need for work. Third, back then, there was a huge foot fetish. Men ogle over feet like current days men ogle over busty girl. This is a way they describe the sexy, they thought women who have their feet bound are extremely sexy. Lastly, it’s necessary to have their foot bound. There was only a few men could accept their wife without food-binding,......

...CASE STUDY 1 : GUITAR MAKER 1. Which of Fayol’s 14 universal principals of management in Table 2.1 are evident in C.F. Martin case? Explain your reasoning for each principle selected. In the C.F. Martin & Company case study several of Fayol’s universal principles of management are present as a result of Chris’ attendance in a week long course entitled “Outward Bound”. The first principle that is evident is that of “Division of Work” realizing that the redirection of certain employees from the core business to assist failing acquisitions was causing a distraction. Secondly, is “Unity of Command” citing a traditional top-down hierarchical chain of command whereby the employee receives his work orders from his boss. Next, is “ Stability and Tenure of Personnel” as every worker was given formal training which resulted in the “Initiative” of employee profit sharing. Lastly, but certainly not less importantly, is the principle of “Esprit de Corps” that proved most successful with Chris realizing that value of teamwork. 2. What would Mary Parker Follett probably say about Chris Martin’s management style? Explain. I believe that Mary Parker Follett would applaud Chris Martin’s managerial style as he came to embrace “ each employee as a complex collection of emotions, beliefs, attitudes and habits” (Kreitner & Cassidy, 2012) and as a result Chris was able to motivate his staff’s performance through cooperation and a spirit of unity. 3.

Ref: Ref: Ref: Google scholar. Ref: own. Ref: same. Corns start forming due to wearing shoes that are too small For us, high heel shoe and shoes with hard soles are not very good for our feet. Women are renowned for squeezing their Feet into shoes that are too tight and too high, you can also get corns through standing for long periods of time, Increased friction and pressure on the feet is not good for us. as the skin starts to get thicker on the soles of our feet or hands it hardens up to form a callus or corn, the small toe is susceptible to getting a corn ! Maybe!! Because the toe gets squashed while our feet are in the shoes. Some people opt for surgery to remove these; as some corns can get very big and are very painful to walk on. A corn is a small area of skin that has become thicker over time due to the constant pressure on the feet. You have two kinds of corns, Hard corns commonly occur on the dorsum of the interphalangeal joints of the toes on the planter surface of the foot beneath the matartarsal heads.

To String a Guitar

...To String A Guitar   To String A Guitar The method of putting a new string on a guitar may seem like an easy process, and in fact, it is. Before I begin to enlighten you on the art of strapping on a new string, there are some things you should know about your guitar. I have provided a map of the anatomy of an acoustic guitar with the appropriate terminology. Any time that I use a term associated with the diagram, I will italicize it. Example: The nut of the guitar. There are six strings on this guitar and I will walk you through the installation of the low E string which, in the above diagram, is the furthest to the left. The only items that you will need are a wire cutter, a guitar tuner, and of course, the low E string. This example will also assume that there is not currently a low E string on your guitar. To begin, you want to make sure that you have a good grasp on your guitar so that it remains stable and motion free while at the same time allowing the use of both of your hands. When you are ready, you can direct your attention to the bridge of the guitar where you will find the bridge pins. At this point, remove the bridge pin that is associated with the low E string. (The one furthest to the left on the diagram) Now focus your attention to the low E string that you have and if it is still coiled, you may uncoil it. At one of the ends of the string you shall see a little hollow ball. Take this ball and put it through the bridge of the guitar where you just...

Foot Care

...Foot Care for the patient with Neuropathy The foot is often the place problems start for people with neuropathy. People with neuropathy who get corns, calluses and bunions have an increased risk for getting foot ulcers (very serious, deep sores). Infection in these ulcers can lead to hospitalization and even the amputation of a foot. How should I care for my feet to avoid foot problems?  Look at your feet daily. Call us at the very first sign of redness, swelling, infection, prolonged pain, numbness or tingling in any part of a foot.  Wash your feet every day in lukewarm water (check the water temperature with your hand or elbow first) and mild soap; use only a washcloth or a very soft brush.  Dry your feet well, especially between the toes. Use a soft towel and blot gently; don’t rub.  Keep the skin of your feet smooth by applying a moisturizing cream or lanolin lotion, especially on the heels.  If your feet sweat easily, keep them dry by dusting them with non-medicated powder before putting on shoes and stockings.  Wear well-padded socks or stockings that are not wrinkled and that are ½ an inch longer than your longest toe. Don’t wear stretch socks, nylon socks or socks with an elastic band or garter at the top. Don’t wear socks with inside seams.  When you buy new shoes, choose shoes made of soft leather. They should not fit tightly anywhere. If you’ve had foot problems because of shoes that didn’t fit well, you may want to be fitted for a...

The Seven Guitars

...Tamber Taylor Intro to Theatre Matthew Davis October 15, 2013 Seven Guitars The Seven Guitars follows a storyline of African American friends who came together after their friend, Floyd “Schoolboy Barton, is murdered unexpectedly. Together, they reminisce about Floyd’s short life and discover the desires and underlying spirit that live within each of them. Floyd is the central character of the Seven Guitars. Floyd dreams of becoming a famous and wealthy blues singer. However, due to his bad attitude, criminal record, and selfishness his life is cut short. Floyd is killed by Hedley. Hedley means well, but he is a very unstable person. Throughout the play, Hedley successfully portrayed his character. Through the universal qualities of energy, purpose, and control, Hedley presented an outstanding character. Hedley hopes to become a “big man.” He wants to be a great leader. However, he does not realize that is not possible because of the time period. Racism plays a role in Hedley’s failures, directly and indirectly. Hedley stated, “I am going to buy me a big plantation. The white man not going to tell me what to do.” In this scene, Hedley is very head strong. His stage presence was profound. The audience could feel that Hedley was determined to be a powerful black man. The simple facial expression he gave told the story of his endeavors. In addition, Hedley was an older guy. He was sort of slumped over, but when he wanted to get his point across, his movements were......

Clown & Blond Guitar

...cheeks, nose, and lips, and its broad grin disappears into the wide, white ruffle around its neck. The clown wears a fluffy, two-tone nylon costume. The left side of the outfit is light blue, and the right side is red. The two colors merge in a dark line that runs down the center of the small outfit. Surrounding its ankles and disguising its long black shoes are big pink bows. The white spokes on the wheels of the unicycle gather in the center and expand to the black tire so that the wheel somewhat resembles the inner half of a grapefruit. The clown and unicycle together stand about a foot high. As a cherished gift from my good friend Tran, this colorful figure greets me with a smile every time I enter my room. The Blond Guitar My most valuable possession is an old, slightly warped blond guitar--the first instrument I taught myself how to play. It's nothing fancy, just a Madeira folk guitar, all scuffed and scratched and finger-printed. At the top is a bramble of copper-wound strings, each one hooked through the eye of a silver tuning key. The strings are stretched down a long, slim neck, its frets tarnished, the wood worn by years of fingers pressing chords and picking notes. The body of the Madeira is shaped like an enormous yellow pear, one that was slightly damaged in shipping. The blond wood has been chipped and gouged to gray, particularly where the pick guard fell off years ago. No, it's not a beautiful instrument, but it still lets me make music, and......

Foot Binding

...Foot Binding the 20th Century Women have been trying to modify their bodies since the beginning of time and this has not changed to the present day. Today women use many types of products to change the way they look to create societies image of perfection. The use of makeup and other topical products is seen to be the norm and if you don’t use them you are usually not seen as put together as other women. Also today women today have many more drastic and permanent option that women in the past could not use. Women today can undergo cosmetic surgery. In fact, the amount of women that get liposuction is 55%, 47% get tummy tucks, 21% get breast enlargements and 24% of women get Botox injections (ChaCha). While the method of body modification had changed, the amount of pain and time that women are willing to put into creating the image that they think is the ideal image has not change over time. Body type and structure has always been important to women. They ideal body type has changed over time. For example, larger women at one point in time were coveted because being larger meant that you could afford to eat in excess. In China specifically the size of women’s feet was thought to be important and the smaller they were the more attractive the women. This is a brutal process that many young women had to endure so that they could be considered attractive and did a lot of damage to their bodies and esteem. Foot binding has occurred in China since the Sung Dynasty which was......

...the crowd began to hush. As I walked onto the stage, I saw that the club was packed with people. The butterflies in my stomach awoke and began fluttering about, and I felt the urge to turn and run off. In a dreamlike trance, I picked up my bass guitar and strapped it around my neck. A spotlight cut through the darkness and focused upon the stage, blinding me momentarily. I heard the drummer begin a four count. Suddenly the club came alive, and resounding music filled the Whisky-A-Go-Go, where twenty-five years earlier, The Doors had begun their musical career. An exhilarating sense of humility and wonder came over me as I thought, "How did I get here?" My career as a bass guitarist in a rock and roll band has had the greatest impact on my life. Playing in a band was important to me because it represented a challenge: transcending the familiar confines of my life and entering completely unknown territory. I wanted to meet people from different backgrounds and go to places that I might never have gone otherwise. The dark, mysterious atmosphere of a Hollywood night club was a far cry from the neat and tidy math and engineering classrooms I had been accustomed to. A year and a half before our appearance at the Whisky-A-Go-Go, bass guitar was about as familiar to me as Swahili. When I started playing, it was hard for me to believe that I would ever play for anyone outside of a garage, much less at a world-famous Hollywood club. I began playing bass at the age of twenty,......

Foot Massage

...amazement. A smoothing Chinese foot massage is one of the alternative methods which can be treated as a physical treatment to make people feel relaxation and decrease their body pain. Traditional Chinese foot massage consists of a foot bath followed by an intense massage on different pressure points in the feet, ankles and legs. Chinese foot massage has been practiced for centuries and it is popular in China. Both ancient Chinese books and modern medical texts mention the effect of foot massage which has been extensively used in treatment for medical symptoms, for example, arthritis, back, neck, and shoulder pain. It is also recommended by physiotherapists in China. Even the feeling of a traditional Chinese foot massage may differ, it basically begins with soaking the feet in hot water adding tea and herbs. During the feet soaking, the therapist massages a person’s shoulders, back and neck for 10 to 15 minutes. After that, the feet are removed from the water and the person is transferred to a comfortable chair where the therapist is ready to work. The therapist uses cream or lotion on the foot and then rubs, pushes and massages pressure points on the bottom, top, and sides of the foot. The foot massage is often painful, particularly for first timers because it is believed that each part of the foot is connected to a part of the body. If pain is felt in a particular part of the foot, it is believed the corresponding part of the body has a problem. So far, foot massage is......
