    Beginning about 40,000 BCE, ancient people used drawing on cave walls to express their thoughts. Piled up stones represented directions and boundaries. People used smoke signals by day and beacon fires by night in ancient China, Egypt, and Greece. Drums also were employed in many parts of the world to extend the range of the human voice for communication.

    The voices we use every day may not seem to be of importance when thinking about an individual’s identity, however the human voice is something worth paying attention to. Some people have different voices that they use for different environments, while others have one main voice they use to communicate with people in their surroundings. In “Speaking in Tongues”, Zadie Smith explains the up and downsides of speaking with more than one voice, as it can either provide flexibility for things in life…

    Singing is anatomical: the brain thinks, and the body responds, any time and any place, that is, if lifestyle behaviors have not deformed the vocal instrument (i.e., excessive spicy foods, alcohol, smoking, screaming, et cetera). Singing begins with an exhalation of human vocal sounds (phonation) (NIDCD, 2015). At the point of phonation, two smooth adjacent muscle tissues in the thorax come into contact and vibrate to create resonating sound waves from the throat, mouth, and nose (NIDCD, 2015).…

    This was horrible. A class about monster tracking...great. I pull up on my black silk gloves they were a part of my uniform, along with a black and red plaid skirt, black saddle shoes, white knee high socks, and a white sweater. I hated it, but I had no choice, nobody can know how different I am. “Right class, what do you do when you see a monster,” asked Mrs. Shard in an annoying high-pitched voice that made my ears bleed. I wanted to flinch, but I couldn't for no one heard what I did.…

    cannot sing. However, singing is just an extension of one’s regular speaking voice. Only someone with a physical disability which bars them from discerning pitch or producing sounds actually cannot physically sing. As Marshall explains, “The quality of the voice is dependent on many factors; however, barring a physical or vocal disability, everyone can learn to sing well enough to sing basic songs” (Marshall). Just like learning to cook or ride a bike, the more work and time one is willing to…

    A voice is an attribute that many people take for granted. A person’s voice can be large and loud or could be soft and small; but we all have a voice inside. All voices are important and fragile to an extent, but the most fragile is a child’s voice. Sometimes a voice is all a child has. Many things can affect a child’s voice, for the positive and for the negative. Negative influences and events can change or kill a child’s voice forever. Life altering events such as abuse, and neglect are…

    the individual voices of the gifted singers stand out, but also come together at times to create what seemed like one powerful voice. This reminded me of how in orchestra all sections have different notes but come together to create one piece. With the one voice they created, however, I thought of how sometimes each section is told to play together in unison to sound like one single cello, viola, or violin. Overall, Eloquence sang amazingly that night and was not only my favorite group, but also…

    inquiry and ask what they get when they add one sperm to one egg. They don 't get two. They get one of something else. Consider the possibility that someone asked what they get when they add one drop of water to another drop of water. For the most part likely they get one bigger drop of water. Again adding one to one doesn 't consequently bring about two. The answer depends on the context. Sarcasm is another case. When it 's conveyed in writing, without the connection the human voice gives, the…
