Echo and Narcissus Zeus was known for many love affairs although he’s married to Hera. Nymph Echo would distract Hera whenever Zeus is visiting the Earth. Seeing this, Hera’s mom, Reah cursed her to never speak again, unless to repeat what those around her said. Echo hid herself in the woods when she met the handsome Narcissus Admired by his own beauty from the reflection of the river, Narcissus said “I love you” which is then repeated by Echo. However, he was too busy admiring his beauty that he didn’t even notice her. So charmed by his own grace, he forgot to eat and died of thirst and hunger which is then followed by Echo. However, she didn’t leave any remains but it’s only her voice that remains till today, known as Echo.

This picture represents the myth of Echo and Narcissus. The way Narcissus is looking at his reflection in the river shows how he’s admiring himself and how he is too in love with himself. However, his position shows that he is weak of thirst and hunger. On the other side, Echo’s face expression indicates that she has fallen in love with Narcissus but didn’t know how to approach. Her head is faced towards him but her body is resisting it, shown by her hand grabbing to a branch of the tree. The position of how Echo is hiding behind a tree shows how shy and timid she feels after her voice was taken away from…...

History of Reverb and Echo in Audio Production Recording

...History of Reverb and Echo in Audio Production Recording Natural occurring reverb goes further back than man on earth. Since before man, creatures and nature made sounds that created natural reverb and echo. But now in today’s age with men and the modern technology that they have created there are all sorts of ways to create reverb and echo. From big metal sheets to plug-ins in a DAW on a computer, engineers have found ways to incorporate and benefit from reverb and echo on a recorded audio track. But before skipping into today’s ways of recording reverb and echo let’s shed some light on what reverb and echo truly is and where it came from. Reverberation or as most people refer to it as reverb, refers to the way sound waves reflects of the surfaces around the sound source before it reaches the listeners ear. Reverb is basically a series of multiple fast echoes merged together so fast that the human ear cannot separate the sound into a delayed distinct duplicate sound. When hearing exact duplicates of the sound is when it becomes echo. In the early days of radio, they would send the radio signal through a line miles and miles away and bring it back. An easy way to hear reverb is to enter an empty room and clap. Immediately after the clap the person would hear the decaying sound of the clap; that is reverb. Recording reverb in the early days was as simple as just backing up a microphone from your sound source to reach the right amount of reverb you were looking for. There...

Narcissus Essay Outline

...The Metamorphosis of Narcissus: Essay Outline 1. Introduction Thesis: In his painting, the Metamorphosis of Narcissus, artist Salvador Dali uses metaphor, juxtaposition, and symbolism to reveal the reason behind, contrast between, and implements of Narcissus’s transformation from life to death. 2. Body Paragraph #1 Metaphor a. Example: The group of dancing women embodies the idea of contentment. Significance: Despite the fact that the women are most likely the rejected lovers of Narcissus, they are dancing with joy because they have each other. The loss of Narcissus’s beauty has little effect on their overall happiness, since companionship is more valuable than beauty. b. Example: Narcissus’s loneliness is comparable to the remaining chess piece. Significance: Narcissus’s divine, greatly sought after beauty, ironically, has made him dissatisfied with life. As a result of his self-love and selective attitude towards possible suitors, he has ostracized himself from all others, which causes him extreme emotional pain. c. Example: The hidden statue is a metaphor to Narcissus’s inevitable fate. Significance: Just as the statue is difficult to see behind the mountain tops, Narcissus is unable to see his destiny, which is to die. Although it is difficult to detect, the constant presence of his pre-determined future is undeniable. 3. Body Paragraph #2 Juxtaposition d. Example: The figure of the living man contrasts sharply with the......

...Echo and Narcissus Introduction This is an old story about a Greek myth. The story is told in the III Book of the Metamorphoses. It was then retold by Roger Lancelyn Green (1918-1987) an English novelist. The characters in this story are mainly Greek mythology characters such as: Zeus, Hera, Aphrodite, Echo, Narcissus, a nymph and another god. Exposition In a mountain in Greece lived the Ureades, nymphs or fairies. There was this beautiful nymph, which was one of the most talkative called Echo. She loved to talk and made Hera, wife of Zeus, king of the gods, jealous and angry, because Zeus was spending too much time with Echo instead of her. Rising Action One day Zeus gets bored and tired of the golden halls in Mount Olympus, so he decided to come down to Earth and wander with the nymphs in the mountains. Hera, however, started getting jealous, so she often came to spy on Zeus. It seemed strange to Hera at first that Echo didn’t stop talking. Then she realized that Echo was doing it on purpose to detain her while Zeus sneaked quietly to Mountain Olympus without her noticing. Climax Hera gets really angry so she throws a spell to Echo where she could only repeat what others said. She couldn’t speak unless someone else spoke first. Hera, left poor little Echo, sweeping sadly among the rocks of the mountain sides speaking only the words that her family and friends said to each other. Falling action There was this beautiful youth called......

...Echo Electronics is a small company that manufactures and distributes communication equipment. In an effort to increase production, Paul Sanchez the production manager, agreed with the engineering department to install new computerized workstations to improve production. However, after 3 months after being installed production was down and quality decreased. Consulting his subordinate managers resulted in differing opinions as the root cause but one thing for sure was moral was down with the production workers. Receiving a call from the CEO, Paul was tasked with determining the problem and correcting it immediately and a report prepared within the week. 1. What actions could Paul have taken to prevent the problem? To prevent this problem, Paul should have had greater discussions with his subordinates regarding his proposal. He rushed the decision without careful thoughts and inputs from others resulting in a decrease in production and a poorer quality product being produced. Taking it a step further, he should have had open discussions with the line workers allowing them to be considered in the decision and overall buy in since they are the ones using the machines. Forcing something new on someone more often than not results in negative results as evident at Echo Electronics. Additionally, he should have had a business plan which reflected costs associated with the new equipment, expected production and a return on investment. Prior to implementation, Paul could had......

Analysis of an Echo Sonnet: “to an Empty Page”

...In Robert Pack's, "To an Empty Page," the speaker discusses death and its consequences regarding relief to show the author's purpose as a feeling of loneliness and depression. He does this with the use of an echo sonnet form, foreshadowing within the title, and through the use of emotion evoking pathos. Pack's use of a sonnet for reveals his feelings and emotions toward love, which sonnets are normally about. Readers can feel the raw emotion that Pack reveals in his discussion regarding the speakers possible death and loss of love, thereafter. In addition, the fact that he wrote an echo sonnet aids in the author’s purpose because it allows the reader to be aware of the words meant to be emphasized. Along with its emphasis, the echo, in some cases, seems to answer a rhetorical question made by the speaker. For example, “what’s the end of my life’s long disease? Ease,” (line 7). Within this quote, the speaker is relaying his belief that the only way to relieve himself of life’s burdens is through death. Pack exposes his true feelings of loneliness, which in sonnet form allows readers to sense his passion. The title, "To an Empty Page," Pack eludes that his poem is dark and filled with sadness. A breakdown of the title shows that Pack's diction with using, "To," was as if the speaker was sending his sonnet to somebody; as if he were talking to an imaginary listener. But contrast to that idea, he is sending his sonnet to, "an Empty Page," meaning nobody. These words have a...

Echo Field Trip

...ECHO FIELD TRIP On this wonderful tour, I learned a large amount of sustainable agricultural approaches. Crop rotation was one of them. It’s where the farmer grows different crops in the same field, in succession. Apparently, there are repercussions to planting the same crop over and over. This avoids those challenges. One challenge in particular is reducing the pest issue that most farmers face. These pests usually explode in population due to the continual availability of their food source. These pests tend to prefer one certain crop and by changing it yearly, the pest population stays down. These farmers also tend to plant crops that replenish the nutrients in the soil. Crops like soybeans and legumes reduce the need for the farmers to use fertilizer because it keeps the soil healthy. Farmers also use a method called “cover crops.” This method involves always having something growing in the soil. This prevents the soil from eroding, the weeds from growing, and it improves the quality of the soil. You will also see a large amount of farmers introduce “pest predators” onto their fields. Insects, birds, and spiders eat a lot of the pests that terrorize the crops of these farmers. These are just a few of the sustainable methods farmers use to keep their farms afloat. The biggest problem farmers’ face is the fact that there is an overgrowth of these pests. These pests are evolving and some pesticides are failing to work at this point. This forces farmers to introduce......

Echos Ng Manobo

...The Bukidnon plateau is home to seven of the 18 different indigenous groups found in Mindanao. After doing some research, although it was fairly short I’ve learned a lot about the Lumad people (the Visayan word collectively used for all indigenous people in Mindanao). We spent most of the week with a Manobo community high in the mountains of San Fernando municipality. The Manobo people are just one of the 18 Lumad groups found in Mindanao; however, they have a number of subgroups with slight language differences and practices. The different Manobo tribes are semi-autonomous from the Philippine government and have their own laws, practices and judgements given by tribal chieftains (Datus). To explore on the food preparation and cooking skills of Manobo people most families in this community depend on root crops and what is caught in the forest for their food. However, food can sometimes be scarce so often times dried fish and rice has to be bought in the barangay market (5km down the mountain). Inside this research are instances of their cooking practices, on how they prepare on their food. The upland Manobo practise swidden or slash-burn farming whereas those inhabiting the valleys practise wet-rice farming. Rice culture is so central to the Manobo way of life that there are more than 60 different names for rice varieties, and all agricultural rituals center around it. In the late 190s, however many Manobo groups shifted to corn culture because of the gradual disappearance...

...superior to all. They also are revenge-seeking and will go into an uncontrollable rage against anyone who does not treat them as a superior or criticizes them. These types appear to be flawless and have an inflated sense of self esteem. This type of behavior may have stemmed from parents or guardians who treated them as a superior in early childhood. This would mean that they are not compensating for anything . They are simply acting out their expectations of life.  The term ‘narcissism’ originated from the Roman poet Ovid’s Metamorphoses (Book III) in the first century story of Narcissus and Echo, and much later evolved into a highly specialized psychoanalytic term. In Ovid’s myth, Narcissus is a handsome young man who spurns the advances of many potential lovers, including the nymph Echo, named this way because she was cursed to only echo the sounds that others made. After Narcissus rejects Echo, the gods punish him by making him fall in love with his own reflection in a pool. Finding that the object of his love cannot love him back, he pines away and dies(insert citation here). The notion of narcissism is obviously years old but it just got recognized as a personality disorder about fifty years ago. Sigmund Freud wrote a paper called On Narcissism: An Introduction in 1914. This publishing gave valuable insight on what narcissism is and who effects the human psyche. Freud proposed that narcissism is a normal part of the human psyche. He described it as the energy that......
