Not a cure, but it sure beats insulin shots.
Every time I get close to you, my heart beats faster.
Her heart skipped a few beats and then thundered.
Under that facade of indifference beats a heart primed for breaking.
Beats me why he gave up.
The muffled beats of music thumped through her open windows.
Give me some reason why one percent and an eternity with you beats out the alternative.
It sounds like some English gothic—a naive waif married off to tyrannical older man who holds her hostage in a golden cage and beats her into submission!
He beats all I've ever seen.
He beats all I've ever seen.
"You're stuck with a deadbeat boyfriend who doesn't carry his own weight and beats you because he's some sort of control freak," he guessed.
On the east coast the force of the north-east monsoon, which beats upon the shores of the China Sea annually from November to February, has kept the land for the most part free from mangroves, and the sands, broken here and there by rocky headlands thickly wooded, and fringed by casuarina trees, stretch for miles without interruption.
The Australian, when he suffers from an oppression in his sleep, says that Koin is trying to throttle him; the Caribs say that Maboya beats them in their sleep; and the belief persists to this day in some parts of Europe; horses too are said to be subject to the persecutions of demons, which ride them at night.
The pulse is slowed, the number of beats per minute being actually reduced, under considerable doses, to forty, or even thirty, per minute.
Ver, " he beats "; veret, " he causes to beat "; vereget, " he beats repeatedly "; verint, " he beats a little "; verhet, " he can beat "; the mode of expressing possession by the tenses of the irregular verb lenni, " to be " (viz.
Suppose that in N beats of the clock the flashes have moved exactly one place back.
Then the first flash in the new position is viewed by the 8Nth passage of the opening, and the second flash in the original position of the first is viewed when the pendulum has made exactly N beats and by the (8 N + i)th passage of the hole.
Then the wheel makes 8 N + 1 revolutions in N clock beats, and the fork makes 32 N + 4 vibrations in the same time.
A standard 128 Efork could then be compared either optically or by beats with the electrically driven fork.
Johann Heinrich Scheibler (1777-1838) tuned two forks to an exact octave, and then prepared a number of others dividing the octave into such small steps that the beats between each and the next could be counted easily.
I makes m 1 beats with No.
2 makes m 2 beats with No.
Suppose, for instance, it makes 3 beats with No.
Then the flange was removed from one and the beats were again counted.
Thus, an interval of one-third of a second elapses between two successive maxima or beats, and there are produced three beats per second.
By similar reasoning it may be shown that the number of beats per second is always equal to the difference between the numbers of vibrations in the same time corresponding to the two interfering notes.
The more, therefore, these are out of tune the more rapidly will the beats follow each other.
The formation of beats may be illustrated by considering the disturbance at any point due to two trains of waves of equal amplitude a and of nearly equal frequencies n, n2.
The vibrograph is also well suited for the same purpose, and so in an especial manner is Helmholtz's double siren, in which, by continually turning round the upper box, a note is produced by it more or less out of tune with the note formed by the lower chest, according as the handle is moved more or less rapidly, and most audible beats ensue.
We have already explained how beats are used on Scheibler's tonometer to give a series of forks of known frequencies.
Beats also afford an excellent practical guide in the tuning of instruments, but more so for the higher notes of the register, inasmuch as the same number of beats are given by a smaller deviation from unison by two notes of high pitch than by two notes of low pitch.
Special grease is then rubbed in and the skin placed in a machine which softly and continuously beats in the softening mixture, after which it is put into a slowly revolving drum, fitted with wooden paddles, partly filled with various kinds of fine hard sawdust according to the nature of the furs dealt with.
By British seamen it is commonly called the " molly mawk "1 (corrupted fromMallemuck),and is extremely well known to them, its flight, as it skims over the waves, first with a few beats of the wings and then gliding for a long way, being very peculiar.
The current formed by the trochus is a gigantic vortex-ring, the down stroke of the cilia being directly outwards, brit the wave beats running round the organ in uniform succession in one direc tion.
A semitone, give two beats per second, while the same number of beats are given by notes of 32 X 16 (four octaves higher than the first of the preceding) or 512, and 514 vibrations, which are only slightly out of tune.
As the interval between two tones, and consequently the number of beats, increases the effect on the ear becomes more and more unpleasant.
In the middle notes of the musical register the maximum harshness occurs when the beats are about 30.
Thus the interval b'c" with frequencies 495 and 528, giving 33 beats in a second, is very dissonant.
But the interval b bc" gives nearly twice as many beats and is not nearly so dissonant.
The minor third a/c" with 88 beats per second shows scarcely any roughness, and when the beats rise to 132 per second the result is no longer unpleasant.
We are then led to conclude that beats are the physical foundation for dissonance.
The frequency of beats giving maximum dissonance rises as we rise higher in the musical scale, and falls as we descend.
