In this week, we studied “Spiral of Silence Theory”, which was proposed firstly by Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann who founds humans are afraid of isolation and rejection. Spiral of Silence Theory means people prefer to keep silent especially when they feel they may have opposite opinions with others’. The first reason of people to keep silent is that they are afraid their divergent opinions will incur isolations. For example, most of students in the discussion sections don’t like answer or ask questions because they are afraid that teacher or other classmates will laugh at themselves because of their idiot questions. Even though teachers encourage students to speak out their opinions, they still want to be silent to avoid any isolations. Therefore, people who don’t have the awareness that they actually in the majority will become quieter. They don’t speak out, don’t tell others what they think and are always quiet. Also, they are afraid of rejection. When they request something or ask a question, they are really scared that anyone will refuse what they said. People will be embarrassed and lost confidence gradually. The second reason is that “Fear of reprisal or more extreme isolation, in the sense that voicing said opinion might lead to a negative consequence beyond that of mere isolation (loss of a job, status, etc.)” (Davie, G. n.d. Spiral of Silence.). The reprisal is much more ridiculous than isolation or rejection because the reprisal exerts the worst influence on people’s mental and physical health. Although people have fear on ridicule or rejection, reprisal and extreme isolation is more serious. Just like what Davie mentioned in his blog, losing a job or status are the results
Developments in Rhythm from the 18th to 21st Centuries
Music can be broken down into a number of aspects. Each aspect influences the creation, study, and performance of music. Music is composed mainly of harmonic and melodic progressions, and rhythm. Rhythm is the organization of the time element in music. Music is often composed between the two parameters of pitch and rhythm. Rhythm is made up of beats, which is the heartbeat (pulse) of any piece of music.
