Acoustic Energy

Unlike many audiophiles, I like equalizers. Not as a tone control, but as an actual tool to flatten the frequency response in a given listening environment. Equalizer, or EQ, is a filter that allows you to adjust the volume level of a (range of) frequency, of an audio signal. An EQ will let you turn […]

Front page photo provided a good laugh I had the heartiest belly laugh at the theatrics by Michael Cohen showing him walking into court for sentencing with his well groomed, handsomely dressed children (and one of them with a crutch as well!). These staged performances by the accused are common place if you deal in law in any fashion and reminded me of the fun/enjoyment I had being a courtroom clerk. — Dianna Holder, Corral de Tierra Solar power won’t exacerbate housing crisis Rudy Fischer wrote (Letters to the Editor, Dec. 9) that the recent decision by the California Energy Commission to require that solar power be installed on new homes beginning in 2020 would exacerbate our state’s housing crisis by making homes more expensive. His letter did not mention analyses by the state and an independent source, Fontana Research, which show that installation of solar reduces the cost of home ownership rather than increasing it. Energy savings are more than the increase in payment on a 30-year mortgage. In addition, large-scale installation of locally-generated solar power has other benefits. It improves health through better air quality and enhances security by slowing global warming. Historically, increased demand for solar energy has consistently and significantly lowered its cost and driven innovation. The Energy Commission’s decision will pay off in increasingly lower costs of housing over time. Rather than making the housing crisis worse, the decision is one tool in a kit that would address our urgent need for housing. — K. Jeffrey Johnson, Carmel Stunned by all the litter on Carmel Valley Road Is it my imagination or is the litter along Carmel Valley Road worse than it has ever been? I’ve been stunned at the volume. Obviously someone feels the same as I do. Just this past week I saw a wonderful citizen walking along the road in front of the Equestrian Boarding Center that used to be called Across the Diagonal. She had her trash bag, sported a lovely, large sun hat, and covered a significant amount of ground picking up trash. I admire and appreciate this person. Would that our County could find a similar way to be admired and appreciated. — Mary Denison, Carmel Valley What’s environmental impact of AUVs? I read with great interest that our local congressman is supporting laws that will allow almost unrestricted use of “Autonomous Underwater Vehicles” off our coastline. I’m a PADI Divemaster who was exposed to moderate intensity military SONAR transmissions back in the mid and late 1990s. I’m extremely concerned that these new devices will be controlled using underwater acoustic transmissions of some kind. Since the vast majority of marine mammals use sound to communicate, find prey and avoid objects, man-made acoustic transmissions may impact our oceans in a way humans cannot predict. A public environmental impact report is in order. The recent revelation some of our diplomats have been targeted with an acoustic weapon should be considered. — Jay Murray, Carmel Valley Interesting choice for new UN ambassador  President Trump’s appointment of former Fox News talking parrot Heather Nauert to be UN ambassador was a bit shocking, even for this president. After all, we wouldn’t want anyone in that position who knew anything about foreign policy, diplomacy, or world history. Already well-known for her astute and empathetic observation that the high point in U.S.-Germany relations was D-Day, I’m confident she’ll follow that up by proclaiming that the zenith in U.S.-Japan relations was when we dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. The real question is, with all of her expertise, how did “Fox and Friends” ever get along without her? — Glenn Nolte, Carmel Valley Let Donald Trump pay for his own wall Mexico will not pay for the wall. The American people will not and should not pay for the wall. So if Donald Trump wants the wall he should use his own money and build the wall with each panel with his name emblazoned on it. — Jan Valtr, Pebble Beach

At almost 40 years old I’ve finally begun to make friends with the cyclical and sometimes what seems to be schizophrenic nature of my creativity. I’ve played music since I was 10, and publicly since I was 12. I’ve played bass in a reggae band, contributed vocals to a hip-hop group, fronted a rock ‘n’ […]

This is usually water, but basically it makes no difference whether a WIG craft is operating over water or over land – provided that the ground surface is sufficiently even and flat. A […]

Why Fashionable Pop Music Is So Terrible

I like pop music. By the 2000s, pop was a genre with countless roads for artists to travel down, every with its own flair and twist to the traditional traditions of pop music. Teen pop was present in the music of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera; pop rock and energy pop had been making a […]

Tonight the 30th Anniversary Acoustic Tour concludes in Manchester, and what a fitting venue and city to close another […]

By Elisabeth Leamy, Special to The Washington Post When I have insomnia, I hear every car and conversation that passes outside my house. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that when I hear every car and conversation outside my house, I get insomnia. Either way, I’ve been shopping for sound-dampening windows since […]
