So, if you are an absolute beginner in electronics , I suppose there are to many things that I “should “ talk about first, but then again, there are a few notions of elementary physics that we’re not going to cover in any posts on this blog, assuming that whoever is reading this already has them all covered, and by elementary notions I mean common sense electricity and optical physics.
To keep things as simple as we can, so that anyone can fully understand the concept, “electronics” basically means that you have a power supply of some sort, connected to a main board with circuits and other parts that allow electricity to flow trough them thus the machine, the motor , the computer, phone etc, can perform certain operations and functions. Think about the primitive TV for example. No electronic board could and won’t function without diodes, transistors and capacitors for example.
Keeping it simpler than that, do you know who and when he invented the first battery? Well, it was a count! Yes, it was Count Alessandro Volta, and he invented it in 1700’s!
Going back to basic electronics , to understand a board you need its schematic or diagram. The circuits can be organized in series or parallel. Bulbs in parallel get the full voltage of a battery for example.
Another important part of the electronic board is the resistor. These “guys” limit the flow of electricity trough a part of the circuit so that they are useful to timers, to dividing voltages or limiting the voltage of machines that are sensible to high values, more information on www.electroschematics.com/basic-electronics/
Also we talked about transistors. These are by far in my opinion the most important part of modern electronics! They literally revolutionized it! Most of them are used for amplifying a sinusoidal signal. There are polar and bipolar transistors. They also act like stabilizers for high voltage power switches!
I speak in dreams with Hercules my successor for the shepherdess seethes when I sit with him and share laughter she won’t see in him is my scent my shades and my shadow in him my breath my pain and my passion how long to the day I sip with him octaves of my resurrection how long to the night I take him back to the caves of qalabazi I sit on my mountain my lightning sizzled from my tears my beard melting like steel I have felled Titans and Poseidon but cannot fight those who don’t feel I will therefore seek him in the future as samurais seek the past as gods seek Olympus as a father seeks his boy because I am Hercules and Hercules he is I.
I love Flamenco. I have written about the intersection between Indo-Pak kathak dancing with Flamenco before, called Fire-Dance. That was one of the biggest youtube hits on this blog (but the video is no longer available).
Check out this Punjabi guitarist merging Flamenco guitar with a popular Indian song. Bollywood freaks will recognize the song as the immensely popular, and haunting, song from the film Bombay which was about Hindu-Muslim riots and featured such a cute little actress. I am putting the youtube cuz of the dancing.
If you’re in the mood for vocals, you should go on Latafat Ali Khan’s Myspace page and listen to the first song. What will men give to one another, it is God who is the giver. My killer is my judge, will He rule in my favor? It’s quite beautiful.
Second one is nice as well. If you break my heart, you will regret it, when my memory haunts you, what will you do?
