Body adornment has always included body painting, tattooing, and other kinds of body art, this has been the case over the ages; but in recent times, body art has become more varied and endlessly creative.

Researchers have systematically investigated the effects of music research on premature infants since the early 1990s, providing evidence-based practice in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) (Caine, 1991; Cassidy & Standley, 1998; Cevasco & Grant, 2005; Cevasco, 2008; Coleman, Pratt, Stoddard, Gerstmann, & Abel, 1997; Collins & Kuck, 1996; Standley, 1998; Standley 2000, Standley, 2003; Whipple, 2000; Whipple, 2005). A meta analysis on music for premature infants indicated statistically significant effects, especially for positive physiological responses, decreased length of hospitalization (LOH), weight gain, feeding, and decreased stress responses (Standley, 2003). All studies in the meta-analysis had positive effect sizes (Cohen’s d ranged from46 to 1.95).

Another thing that disturbs visitors to the building are the imperfections in the vaults and the dome. The curve is not perfect. The dome – and parts of the semi-domes – fell three times over the centuries. The most ‘recent’ was the collapse of 1346 that brought down a part of the eastern arch with part of the dome. The Emperor John and his wife Anna had to beg to raise the funds to do the repairs – what was left of the empire could not finance them. The Russians and other Orthodox princes gave money and the repairs got done. Magee, W., Ghetti, C., & Moyer, A. (2015).

Raman worked on the acoustics of musical instruments from 1909 to 1935 and regularly published his research work on musical instruments in reputed journal like Nature (London), journal Dept. of science, University of Calcutta, Philosophical magazine, Indian association for cultivation of science etc. and also in various proceedings of national and international repute. He worked out the theory of transverse vibration of bowed strings, on the basis of superposition velocities. He was also the first to investigate the harmonic nature of the sound of the Indian drums such as the tabla and the mridangam 2 He had some pioneer work on violin family and ektara. On the wolf note of the violin and cello”, The kinematics of bowed string”, The musical instruments and their tones”, Musical drums with harmonic overtones” etc are some examples of his published work. Raman was fascinated by waves and sounds and is always carried in his mind the memory of reading Helmholtz’s book on ‘The Sensations of Tone’ in his school days. His work on musical instruments is the biggest motivation of research in the area. After Sir C V Raman, research work on musical instruments was carried forward by S Kumar, K C Kar, B S Ramakrishnan and B M Banerji during mid of nineteenth century. After that there was a big void in the research of Indian musical instrument sound.

Raster Graphics image is a dot matrix data structure, representing a generally rectangular grid of pixels, or points of color, viewable via a monitor, paper, or other display medium. Raster images are stored in image files with varying formats. A bitmap, a single-bit raster, corresponds bit-for-bit with an image displayed on a screen, generally in the same format used for storage in the display’s video memory, or maybe as a device-independent bitmap. A raster is technically characterized by the width and height of the image in pixels and by the number of bits per pixel (or color depth, which determines the number of colors it can represent). The printing and prepress industries know raster graphics as contones (from “continuous tones”). The opposite to contones is “line work”, usually implemented as vector graphics in digital systems.

Kant and Levinas’ conviction that the asymmetrical electromagnetic field within the creative artistic mind is now evolving exponentially, is now evident. Recently single paintings have been created by artists, which when viewed through asymmetric electromagnetic glasses, instantly reveal holographic multidimensional planes being traversed by curved forms. Timbre is the perceived sound quality of a musical note, sound, or tone that distinguishes different types of sound production, such as choir voices and musical instruments, such as string instruments, wind instruments, and percussion instruments, and which enables listeners to hear even different instruments from the same category as different (e.g. a viola and a violin).
