Music for a runner’s ear

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail -CU- Published: Nov. 19, 2015 Audio ScriptMusic for a runner’s earNov. 20, 2015                       Annaka PriceFor Annaka Price the ideal cadence for running is 180 steps per minute and to make sure she stays at that pace she’s creating unique music to help her stay in step. Price, who is studying for a doctorate of musical arts and also is a teaching assistant at CU-Boulder’s College of Music, arrived at that cadence number after injuring herself training for a marathon. CUT 1  “It took me a year to learn how to run again. I read lots of material on websites and I eventually went to a class and in this class they videotaped us and gave us four different principles of good running form and one of them was cadence. (:14) For me that was the magical thing and being the good student that I am I ran with my metronome for a long time. It was a little monotonous and a lot of people laughed at me.” (:24)But for Price the goal of finding the perfect cadence for running was no laughing matter as she discovered that a cadence of 180 beats per minutes is ideal running efficiently with less chance for injury.CUT 2 “When you increase your cadence it more naturally facilitates a smaller step size and it also more naturally facilitates a mid-push strike. (:11) And with both of these things it allows your skeletal system to operate more efficiently and to reduce the impact from each of the steps you’re taking. So there’s less force as you hit the ground.” (:24)Except for her monotonous metronome she says there is little music she has found to match her needs. So to advance her goal a step further she has created Operation Cadence – a project where she is commissioning pieces from composers that will hit 180 beats per minute and at the same time be diverse with a broad appeal.CUT 3 “I’m working with composers from across the country to write pieces specifically at 180 beats per minute. So it’s specifically designed for running and there hasn’t been, as far as I’m aware, other classical music composed with this intention. (:16) The composers I’m working with have come from very different backgrounds. There’s some composers who are influenced by film music or jazz or dance or video games, which I think will create a very diverse and appealing playlist.”  (:31)Price says she created Operation Cadence for two reasons that are very close to her heart.CUT 4 “Ultimately I have a desire to teach people about running form. I think a lot of people don’t run because they don’t know how and we think it’s something that should be easy because as kids we played tag or we played dodge ball and so it seems like it would be something that would be really easy. (:15) So I wanted to teach people about that while also increasing awareness for contemporary classical music because I think that’s something that’s misunderstood frequently.” (:24)Price says once the playlist is completed people will be able to purchase it on the Operation Cadence homepage where you also can now listen to a sample by composer Alan Eikins: http://www.operationcadence.com/#!support/cnec.last_img read more

Garap Potensi Wisata, Indonesia Tawarkan Penerbangan Langsung ke Myanmar

first_imgMyanmar Airlines International (Trip Advisor) Dibanding Vietnam dan Kamboja, Myanmar jauh lebih sepi didatangi oleh tamu asing, lantaran pemerintahan yang masih dipimpin Junta Militer membuat iklim usaha dan wisata di Negeri asal Aung San Suu Kyi ini kurang menarik dan terlihat ‘mengerikan’ untuk didatangi. Namun perlahan, negara anggota ASEAN ini mulai berbenah, mulai ada sentuhan demokrasi dan berbagai sanksi internasional untuk Myanmar telah dicabut.Menyikapi peluang Myanmar yang kini mulai membuka diri, pada 14 Juli 2015 lalu, Duta Besar Indonesia untuk Myanmar, Dr Ito Sumardi mengatakan bila Myanmar Airlines International (MAI) dan Garuda Indonesia telah menandatangani kesepakatan kerjasama, namun sayangnya sampai saat ini tidak ada kelanjutan tentang langkah kerjasama tersebut.Baca juga: Lakukan Go Around, Pilot Garuda Indonesia GA425 Selamatkan Penerbangan dari Petaka “Sayangnya Myanmar belum siap untuk mengizinkan penerbangan langsung dari Indonesia ke Myanmar saat itu. Saya masih berusaha keras untuk meminta Myanmar, jika memungkinkan kita bisa mengatur penerbangan dari Jakarta ke Yangon karena di Indonesia banyak orang ingin berkunjung ke Myanmar,” kata Sumardi yang dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari mmtimes.com (17/7/2017).Sumardi menagatakan, dirinya akan mencoba untuk meminta pemerintah Myanmar agar memberi kesempatan bagi Indonesia bisa membuka penerbangan langsung ke Myanmar. Apalagi keadaan ekonomi Myanmar yang mulai berubah setelah pencabutan sanksi internasional tahun lalu dan Myanmar menawarkan potensi besar bagi investor asing yang akan merambah ekonomi negara yang dulu dikenal sebagai “Birma.”Baca juga: Pulau Rote, Strategis Bagi Perbatasan, Inilah Keindahan di Ujung Selatan Indonesia“Kedubes kami berupaya membawa delegasi bisnis Indonesia untuk melihat peluang investasi di sini (Myanmar). Semoga nanti salah satu organisasi dari Indonesia dapat mempromosikan bisnis pariwisata,” ujar Sumardi.Hingga kini diketahui, jumlah kunjungan wisawatan Myanmar ke Indonesia meningkat. Wakil Direktur Kementerian pariwisata Indonesia, Pupung Thariq Fadhillah mengatakan, saat ini sudah ada sekitar 25.000 pelacong Myanmar ke Indonesia tahun 2015 lalu. Tak hanya itu, untuk pertama kalinya Kementerian Pariwisata Indonesia bersama dengan 10 operator berangkat ke Myanmar untuk mempromosikan kegiatan pariwisata antar kedua negara.Baca juga: Desa Pelangi, Ubah Wilayah Padat dan Kumuh Jadi Tujuan Wisata“Sebenarnya ini adalah acara singkat untuk promosi pariwisata, kami akan melakukan langkah demi langkah dalam jangka panjang. Dengan melakukan kegiatan ini kita bisa mendapatkan kontak bisnis dan mitra dari kedua negara, “kata Fadhillah. Dia menambahkan, Indonesia berencana untuk menyelenggarakan acara serupa di bulan September di Myanmar. Ini karena sangat penting untuk menghubungkan kedua negara, khususnya agar menuju Myanmar tak perlu harus transit di Bangkok (Thailand), Singapura ataupun Malaysia. “Saya harap frekuensi penerbangan akan meningkat sepanjang tahun, “katanya.Hingga kini salah satu maskapai yang memiliki rute Indonesia menuju Yangon hanya Jetstar Airlines dan itupun tetap transit di Singapura. Managing Director Electra Tour, Robbie Arisutantyo mengatakan, bahwa masa depan pariwisata Myanmar sangat bagus, dan banyak hal menarik di dalmnya sehingga pihaknya bisa menjual paket wisata ke masyarakat di Indonesia.Baca juga: Pulau Miangas, Garda Terdepan Yang Eksotis di Utara Indonesia“Acara ini akan mendorong lebih banyak orang untuk melakukan perjalanan ke Indonesia dan beberapa di antaranya sudah berkunjung ke Indonesia,” ujar Robbie. Menurut data dari Kementerian Pariwisata Indonesia, mereka menerima lebih dari 12 juta turis internasional pada 2016, empat kali lebih banyak dari pendatang di Myanmar. Indonesia menargetkan meraup 15 juta wisatawan tahun ini.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedGaruda Indonesia Lakukan Codeshare dengan Japan Airlines06/09/2018In “Bandara”Dukung Program Pemerintah, Garuda Indonesia Buka Rute Menuju Nagoya Jepang08/03/2019In “Bandara”Garuda Indonesia Rute Denpasar-London, Kini Resmi Transit di Medan17/07/2019In “Bandara”last_img read more

Cass has the best swim

first_imgIPGC Golf from The HavenMonday, Sept. 28, Greenwood – StablefordHaving set off from The Haven in fine weather but with the outlook appearing gloomy, the group managed to play eight or nine holes before heavy rain set in and the players repaired to the clubhouse to outwait the storm.  After an hour or more and a few beverages later and it still raining, it was agreed that the course would probably be unfit to allow for any continuation of play and the group returned to base.  It was the first time in over two years that a competition with the group had not been completed due to the weather or course conditions.Wednesday, Sept. 30, Pattana A & C – StablefordCSS 731st Hal Hart (20) 35pts 2nd Jamie King (17) 31pts3rd Benny Hansen (27) 30pts4th Phil Cass (16) 27pts5th John Sutcliff (17) 27ptsPhil Cass & Hal Hart.The stormy weather continued through to Wednesday and once again the group set off in high hopes.  Unfortunately the numbers were greatly depleted due to the course reasonably requiring carts to be kept to the paths and a fair number of the regulars deciding that their expertise was probably insufficient to get them near enough to the paths from the tee to avoid walking further than riding.In the event the rain kept away until the last couple of holes for most of the three groups and so there was no repeat of the previous outing’s cancellation.Hal Hart had the best of the day to take another win, utilising his new putter that had been generously donated by Bruce Hilde who considered it a loser but is now regretting the kindly gesture as it is now costing him dear.  Hal’s one over score was good enough in the conditions to lead the chasing pack in by four clear shots.Jamie King took second place after sticking to it having been in a good position up until the rain set in and then faded a little.Benny Hansen slipped into third another shot back after he had started well but tired a little following a bit too much walking.Phil Cass won a count back for fourth spot over John Sutcliff with a better 7 to 6 on the last six holes after they had tied the nine on 13 each.There were no 2’s in either of the divisions.Friday, Oct. 2, Crystal Bay – StablefordCSS 72 1st Phil Cass (16) 36pts2nd Hal Hart (20) 30pts3rd Peter Skinner (11) 28ptsAnother start from The Haven when the weather was looking ominous and again the field had been depleted, on this occasion even more so, as there were no carts available due to the lack of cart paths on the course.  This meant that all of the players would be walkers, reducing the entries to the bare minimum.Phil Cass made light work of the heavy going as the course was fairly waterlogged with casual water drops needed on many occasions throughout the day.  His level handicap round easily took the win as the rest of the hopefuls struggled to keep up any momentum on a slow day with so many extra drops needed to complete each hole.  Phil’s win was even more remarkable considering that his card included four zero-pointers and three four-pointers.Hal Hart had another good result in second place even though his card also had four zeros on it but unfortunately no four-pointers.Peter Skinner returned to conditions that he used to be well suited to, but a few years spent in balmy conditions has blunted his wet weather skills somewhat.  He still did well enough however to secure third place on the day and the last place on a foreshortened podium.Once again there were no 2’s in either division leaving the second division pool overflowing and awaiting to be cleared after several previous attempts.Note: If you would like to play with The Haven group, you can contact 038 710 988 or call in to The Haven Hotel, 185 Soi 13, situated between Beach Road and 2nd Road.  All transportation to the course is arranged and you do not need to sign up prior to the day, but you should be there by 8.15 on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the days that you wish to play. If you would like to leave your golf clubs at The Haven, there are usually lockers available at a nominal charge.  A schedule of courses to be played can be found on our web site at www.thehaven-hotel.com.last_img read more
