The #reel is in Spanish. I talk about how wonderful nature is. One seed of a sunflower gave me this beautiful multiple sunflowers plant. The bees enjoy it so much, the hummingbirds, myself. Pollination in my urban farm has been fantastic this year thanks to the sunflowers and other bee pollination plants I acquired for this growing season.
This year I really took very good care of my urban orchard. I fertilized it, had no diseases, watered it properly, trimmed it at perfect timing. The result is here: so far, I have harvested 108 oranges and still there are probably another hundred to be collected. Oh, and the flavor of them is amazing. They are so sweet and juicy. Delicious!
Have You Ever Wondered?
We’ve all seen those scenes in movies. You know, the scene where the opera singer belts out a note so loud and sustained that they literally shatter a glass. I’m wondering if that’s actually possible?
So apparently every object has a natural resonant frequency. That means there’s a pitch at which that object starts to vibrate (even skyscrapers have this natural resonance). The thing is… every single piece of glass has a different pitch at which it resonates.
So if you were able to shatter a glass by singing, you’d have to sing at the exact note that resonates for that specific piece of glass. Turns out, you can find that note by hitting the glass and listening for the clink sound.
Now, if you were able to sing that exact note for a really long time at a REALLY loud volume, you could theoretically shatter a glass. The vibration will eventually cause the glass to flex enough that it shatters.
In order to break a glass with nothing but a human voice, you have to look at a few important factors. First, to shatter glass, the frequency of waves should be around 550 Hertz. Therefore, the person in charge of shattering the glass has to make sure that their voice can attain a frequency in that range. More Here
So the answer is: it’s possible but it ain’t easy. Here’s a pretty cool YouTube video where they do manage to shatter a glass (with some technological help). Just make sure to turn the volume down on your headphones or speakers, trust me!
If you sing at a wine glass at its exact resonant frequency, you can break the glass without the help of a speaker! Learn the physics behind that. Watch Video Here
I had always assumed this was a myth but it’s cool to know that it’s actually possible. Do ya think you have the pipes to shatter a glass?
SPAIN MOST BEAUTIFUL RARITIES
Heavenly Caverns in Spain,, just breathtaking! 😍
The series of caves known as Cuevas de Nerja, above, close to the pretty seaside town of the same name was discovered by boys bunking off school in the 1950s.
Reaching for almost three miles, they are like giant subterranean cathedrals. Be warned, it can be steep inside.
RESTAURANT “EL DIABLO” (The Devil) 🍺 🍤 🥣
One of España’s most unique eating experiences has to be having your food cooked right on top of an active volcano. Restaurante el Diablo – Devil’s Restaurant – is located in the Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote and cooks its meat and vegetable dishes in the geothermal heat of the volcano.
THE SECOND LARGEST CHAIR IN THE WORLD 😮 😻
Perhaps one of the most random entries on the list is the world’s second-largest chair in the town of Lucena, near Córdoba. España briefly succeeded with this eight-storey high, over 26-metre creation, but was soon cruelly pipped to first place by an Austrian chair.
SIERRA NEVADA (SNOWED MOUNTAIN RANGE)
Drive along Europe’s highest road for snow, then head an hour south to sunbathe on the Costa del Sol.
