There was a sincere attempt by the City of Atlanta and the Friends of Piedmont Park to limit the number of events and festivals in the park. Now from early spring to late fall, every weekend there are multiple events in the park often making it almost off-limits for nearby residents who want to ride their bicycles or walk their dogs or simply be enveloped by an oasis of green in the middle of the city. Because I love listening to live music outdoors, I certainly support Music Midtown. I thought this years line-up was particularly good for the two-day version of the festival. Cake was fabulous I would have been perfectly happy if they had been the Friday night headliner. More Music Midtown memories Amy Wenk and I after Friday nights Cake concert (Photo: David Luse) Saturday nights headliner the Red Hot Chili Peppers is one of my favorite bands. I knew it was going to be great show when the Peppers played The Other Side early on. I couldnt stop singing it all night. Other highlights for me were the bands Phoenix and Capital Cities both bands that are up-and-comers. Thats one of the reasons I love Music Midtown its an opportunity to discover many new artists and to stay current. For example, I remember being able to right up front to the stage to see Jack Johnson play before he became so well-known. I have so many great Music Midtown memories dating back to its inception when the festival was nestled between Peachtree and West Peachtree, and 10th and 11th streets. One year it moved downtown to Baker Street before finding a multi-year home around the Civic Center. Today Music Midtown is creating new memories for younger generations of people some who werent even born in 1994.
Loving Music Midtown and Piedmont Park shouldn’t be mutually exclusive
Pain, as reported by the kids, increased with the procedure in those who didn’t have the music, but remained low in those who did. Not just any music will do the trick, according to Hartling. The purpose is to distract rather than soothe, she explains, and booming, complicated music is most effective at this. One piece used in the study was “Jupiter” from the symphony “The Planets.” “It’s very energetic, with lots of sounds and themes,” Hartling says. Other useful techniques include storytelling, guided imagery (talking to kids about a special place or event), blowing soap bubbles and, not surprisingly, tablet games. Sipping sugar water, sitting in parents’ laps and deep breathing can also help mitigate children’s pain in the doctor’s office or the emergency room. Such distractions might require a rethinking of the doctor visit. For years the protocol in many pediatric practices has been to give out stickers or candy after kids get their shots. “Why not put something in place before the injection?” asks Denise Harrison, a nurse and researcher at the University of Ottawa. In a 2010 study, Harrison found that in 13 of 14 clinical trials, use of a sugar solution typically given orally two minutes before an injection reduced babies’ crying upon getting the shot. Harrison and William Zempsky, head of pain medicine at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, are part of a group of physicians and researchers trying to change the way health-care providers manage pain in children.
Music can distract kids from the pain of medical procedures
Spiegel Online reports Leon Giesen, 51, has led three attempts in recent weeks to unearth the rumored buried loot in Mittenwald, near the Austrian border after the towns officials signed off on the hunt. The strange sequence centers on the recent public revelation of an annotated score of the March Impromptu, a piece of music by composer Gottfried Federlein, the news agency reports. “It’s like a treasure map that can’t be deciphered.” – Jurgen Proske, a German historian According to Spiegel Online, Nazi leader Adolf Hitler ordered his private secretary, Martin Bormann, during the final days of World War II to imbed a series of letters, figures and runes on the sheet music that would, when deciphered, lend the coordinates to a horde of buried treasure. A military chaplain was then reportedly ordered to squire the score to someone in Munich but it never arrived. Decades later, Dutch journalist Karl Hammer Kaatee came into possession of the document. Then, in December and after repeated unsuccessful attempts at cracking the code Kaatee made the score public to much fanfare overseas, according to Spiegel Online. “It’s like a treasure map that can’t be deciphered,” Jurgen Proske, a German historian, told the news agency. Now, Giesen believes hes finally uncovered the solution to the sheet musics alleged mysterious code. The Dutch filmmaker reportedly believes a line added to the score that reads, Wo Matthias die Saiten Streichelt,” or where Matthew plucks strings,” actually refers to Mittenwald and one-time resident Matthias Klotz, who purportedly founded the towns renowned violin-making tradition. Also, Spiegel Online writes Giesen says the sheet music contains a schematic diagram of train tracks that once ran through Mittenwald in the 1940s, and that the chopped sentence, Enden der Tanz,” which means “end the dance” — located at the conclusion of the score — means the treasure can be found at the former site of the rail line’s buffer stops. And eerily early digs have reportedly revealed a large quantity of unidentified metals, which Giesen cites geologists as describing as an, anomaly, a substance that doesnt belong there. The Dutchman is now looking to raise the requisite funds to continue the dig, according to Spiegel Online. Proske, though, has his doubts, reportedly saying, “It could be a treasure chest. But it could just be a manhole cover.”
