Birds Sing For The Fun Of It

Birds, Like Humans, Sing Just Because They Can

I read about this in a Natural Awakenings magazine [Sept 2010]

Gives new meaning to the term “Bird Brained.”

It has been determined that birds not only sing to communicate daily needs, but many engage in sound play, most often when they’re alone, but sometimes also when people are around.

Some bird species continually improvise and embellish their singing with new elements, phrasing and sequences.  For example, nightingales and canaries are avian virtuosos, reinventing their song repertoire each year. The brown thrasher is said to have around 2000 song types Рa record. Nightingales organize their compositions according to rules of construction similar to the way humans use syntax [the arrangement of words and phrases]. Nightingales also create distinctive phrases that identify them as individuals.

Recordings or Australian magpies reveal how the bird’s voice ¬†covers four octaves, varies its phrasing between staccato and legato, and embellishes sequences with vibrato, trills or deep overtones. More, it will complete a song with a signature phrase, much like an artist initials a finished painting.

*Crash* Glass By Corning for the Future

Ok, so this was pretty cool, but my question is, is it sharp when it shatters?

Personally, I like the windows that black out / photosensitive for privacy/shade.
Don’t care for the bathroom mirror acting as anything other than a reflector of non-augmented reality.
The cell phone being semi-translucent on the backside made no sense other than “ooh, aren’t we cool? Look how sophisticated our tech is”… to me, I’m thinking, where’s the privacy on your call?Why would you want people able to see the reverse image of who you are calling on the backside?
The whole dashboard of glass on the car? How thick is that – meaning, how much heavier is it than current materials?
Bottom line, glass cleaners and micro fiber cloths will be VERY POPULAR.
