Aphasia

September 25th of 2013, Luc suffered a massive stroke that let him with an aphasia condition. Due to loss of blood flow or damaged tissue, sustained during the injury aphasia may become permanent. In a way it was good to be here because I received the best medical attention I could ever have. I had a long way to recover but I managed to improve a lot. I just have an aphasia condition that does not allow me to speak, I can speak words and make myself understand by using the computer, and the good thing is that I did not lose my abilities.

Writing

——

Today while I was doing some cleanup around the office I came across some letters and messages from people who had contacted me over the past few years either to ask for work or to ask to distribute some of my software products. I had kept them aside as a reminder on how not to do business. It is a pet peeve of mind that when you communicate on business purposes to do it properly and to write well and to try to do your best to use proper grammar and spelling.

I might be showing my age, but it does gets me very mad when I receive some business message that is either very badly written or written as it you are sending a SMS message, email or comments like the title of this post. There are no reason for either ones, especially the first one as nowadays spelling and grammar correctors are ubiquitous on all computer platforms. If somebody wants to find a job or wants to do business with someone it looks very bad on you when you send messages like that as the first impression you make to your prospective client, employer, or partner is one that you cannot even bother to put your thoughts down and write them properly.

Professionally I write thousands of words daily on various subjects and for various purposes, all of it with minimal editing and proofreading, so I am the first person guilty of grammatical and spelling mistakes, but when you come across as if you have no idea of what you are talking about due to poor writing skills or worse you consider business communication no more important than a quick SMS and Viber to your best buddies you will have problems going forward with any goals you might have in mind. This is not just for the younger generations out there, a lot of people of my generation suffer from the same problems.

I deal with people from all over the world daily and I do understand that if English is not your primary language, you might have some problems in communicating perfectly. I know from experience as English is not my mother tongue, French is. I have also spoken English since early childhood, and essentially have studied and worked in English since my late teens so English is my primary language these days, even though that at home now for the past 2-3 years we have switched from using English to using Spanish. I find the same problem with French and Spanish speaking people, that the quality of the written communication has dropped down dramatically over the past 20 years, when it should have increase a lot with all the spelling and grammar correction facilities we now have. It seems that people just don’t care anymore.

Wake up people, you have the tools to communicate in a better and more effective way. If you are too lazy to even take the few second to communicate effectively life will pass you by as where it counts people will think that you are too lazy to work effectively. Also take pride in you language as if you do not use it properly who will? For those like me who communicate mostly in languages that are own, take pride in learning it properly so that you can communicate and work effectively.

Take this advise seriously as we human can make something with our lives and progress with effective communications and those who do not even make the effort to do so will be left behind. It is not just an old consultant like me who says it, it is the entire business world. When faced to choose between two candidates, which one do you think a decision maker will select, the one that sounds like a professional or the one that sounds like some street gang member?

Luc

Luc graduated from McGill University, Montréal, Québec with B.Sc. (Biology, Electronic), and a D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery). He worked in a private dental practice from 1983 to 1992, and started offering IT consulting services in 1983. He is a long time technology enthusiast and founder JLP Consultants, to service large corporate clients such as KPMG Peat Marwick, Fannie Mae (Federal National Mortgage Association), Chase Manhattan Bank foreign trade division (Hong Kong), and Warner Lambert. Over the past 38 years Luc has been working as an independent consultant in technology. He is an expert developer of software for desktop, web and mobile applications as well as a gifted integrator and designer of electronic and robotic hardware of all kind.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction

Luc is continuing education numerous certifications temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD). TMJD is an umbrella term covering pain and dysfunction of the muscles of mastication and the temporomandibular joints. The most important feature is pain, followed by restricted mandibular movement, and noises from the temporomandibular joints during jaw movement. Although TMJD is not life-threatening, it can be detrimental to quality of life; this is because the symptoms can become chronic and difficult to manage. Examples include: headache, facial pain, migraine, tension headache, myofascial pain, pain elsewhere, such as the teeth or neck, diminished auditory acuity, etc…

Physiotherapy for TMJD may include the use of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), which may override pain by stimulation of superficial nerve fibers and lead to pain reduction which extends after the time where the TENS is being actually being applied, possibly due to release of endorphins. Others recommend the use of ultrasound, theorized to produce tissue heating, alter blood flow and metabolic activity at a level that is deeper than possible with surface heat applications. There is tentative evidence that low level laser therapy may help with pain.

Relaxation techniques include progressive muscle relaxation and meditation. It has been suggested that TMJD involves increased sensitivity to external stimuli leading to an increased sympathetic response with cardiovascular and respiratory alterations. Relaxation techniques cause reduced sympathetic activity, including muscle relaxation and reducing sensitivity to external stimuli, and provoke a general sense of well being and reduced anxiety.

Aphasia

September 25th of 2013, Luc suffered a massive stroke that let him with an aphasia condition. Due to loss of blood flow or damaged tissue, sustained during the injury aphasia may become permanent. In a way it was good to be here because I received the best medical attention I could ever have. I had a long way to recover but I managed to improve a lot. I just have an aphasia condition that does not allow me to speak, I can speak words and make myself understand by using the computer, and the good thing is that I did not lose my abilities.

Meditation

Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, activity, song, or video to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. Luc has been in touch since that time and for the past years has been discussing a method of helping people that control meditation may significantly reduce stress, anxiety, depression, COVID-19, HIV, TMJD, aphasia, ADHD, cancer, and pain; and enhance peace, perception, self-concept, and well-being.

First, for the practice to be successful, one should dedicate the practice, and set out the goal of the meditation session. One may decide to either practice mindfulness of breathing while seated or standing or lying down or walking, or to alternate seated, standing, lying down and walking meditation. Then one may concentrate on the breath going through one’s nose: the pressure in the nostrils on each inhalation, and the feeling of the breath moving along the upper lip on each exhalation.

Scientifically Demonstrated Benefits

Meditators experienced in focused attention meditation showed a decrease in habitual responding recommends practice of 20 minutes twice per day, may illustrate a lessening of emotionally reactive and automatic responding behavior. It has been scientifically demonstrated that mindfulness of breathing enhances connectivity in the brain. The practice of focusing one’s attention changes the brain in ways to improve that ability over time; the brain grows in response to meditation. That practice of mindfulness meditation for two to six months by people undergoing long-term psychiatric or medical therapy could produce small improvements in anxiety, pain, or depression. A scientific statement that meditation may be a reasonable adjunct practice to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, with the qualification that meditation needs to be better defined in higher-quality clinical research of these disorders.

Deep Meditation System

First Luc researched the scientific principles behind available biofeedback technologies, the ways to design and build the actual sensors and then the vast array of commercially available medical sensor that were waiting to be integrated in a comprehensive solution. Hardware and software solution that uses various biosensors (EEG, ECG, EKG, TENS, EMS, pulse, skin resistance, skin temperature, dissolved blood oxygen, etc.) to facilitate deep meditation in patients. We did the preliminary research, tested various types of sensors to find the solution yielding the best results, constructed proof-of-concept prototypes, and planned production prototypes. 2005 – Meditation EEG, and 2015 – Meditation Glasses LED.

That product will have multiple versions that can be sold to consumers and health professionals alike. This control meditation may significantly reduce stress, anxiety, depression, COVID-19, HIV, TMJD, aphasia, ADHD, cancer, pain, etc… Enhance peace, perception, self-concept, and well-being.

Microphone

A microphone is a device a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal. Microphones are used in many applications. They are also used in computers for recording voice, speech recognition, VoIP, and for non-acoustic purposes such as ultrasonic sensors or knock sensors.

Electret microphone is a type of electrostatic capacitor-based microphone, which eliminates the need for a polarizing power supply by using a permanently charged material. Unlike other condenser microphones, electret types require no polarizing voltage, but they normally contain an integrated preamplifier, which does require a small amount of power.

SparkFun Sound Detector

SparkFun Item: SEN-12642

The SparkFun Sound Detector is a small and very easy to use audio sensing board with three different outputs. The Sound Detector not only provides an audio output, but also a binary indication of the presence of sound, and an analog representation of its amplitude. The 3 outputs are simultaneous and independent, so you can use as many or as few as you want at once.

The envelope output allows you to easily read amplitude of sound by simply measuring the analog voltage. Gain can be adjusted with a through-hole resistor, to change the threshold of the binary output pin as well.

SparkFun Qwiic MP3 Trigger

Sometimes you just need an MP3 to play. Whether it’s a theme song as you enter the room or a power song when you are working out. The SparkFun Qwiic MP3 Trigger takes care of all the necessary requirements, all you need to do is send a simple I2C command and listen to whatever is on your micro SD card. Utilizing our handy Qwiic system, no soldering is required to connect it to the rest of your system. However, we still have broken out 0.1″-spaced pins in case you prefer to use a breadboard.

When a USB-C cable is connected to the Qwiic MP3 Trigger the contents of the microSD card appears as a jump drive. Simply plug in the Qwiic MP3 Trigger and you’ll be transferring MP3s. Sound output is provided via a 3.5mm headphone jack or poke-home connector allowing an external speaker to be connected without soldering.

We’ve written an extensive Arduino library to make MP3 playing over I2C a breeze. Play tracks, change volume, play next/previous, check if track is playing, stop play, change EQ, and change I2C address are all supported.

  • 3.3V
  • Volume, EQ setting, and I2C address settings stored in non-volatile memory and loaded at each power-on.
  • microSD supports 128MB to 32GB cards.
  • Trigger pins 1, 2, 3, and 4.
  • Up to 255 tracks can be loaded onto the SD card and triggered via the I2C interface.
  • USB-C Connector.
  • Qwiic Connector.

To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles, And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep No more; and by a sleep, to say we end The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks That Flesh is heir to?

The Alpha Geek - Geeking Out

With that attitude in mind since childhood it was very difficult not to grow up and become a full-fledged Geek at an early age. That was one of my many interests at the time and I cannot even remember how many different “Geeky” things I have done over the years. In my early teens I was into photography and processing and printing my own B&W photos in a darkroom I had built with the help of my Mom in our basement in Canada. I got into electronics when I could not afford to buy a proper darkroom timer and I saw some article, probably in some electronics magazine, that explained how to build a simple timer that blinks a LED at one second intervals. After a trip, probably to Radio Shack, to buy a 555 timer IC, a LED, resistors, wires, battery, switch and a small perforated circuit board. After that I was hooked on electronics projects from that day.

Don Luc Electronics Websites that were thought to be useful to electronics engineers professionals, geek, hobbyists, hackers and makers. We are experts in designing and programming embedded systems using a wide variety of platforms and microcontrollers.

Wave

In a wave is a propagating dynamic disturbance of one or more quantities, sometimes as described by a wave equation. In physical waves, at least two field quantities in the wave medium are involved. Sound waves are variations of the local pressure and particle motion that propagate through the medium.

Sine Wave

To the human ear, a sound that is made of more than one sine wave will have perceptible harmonics, addition of different sine waves results in a different waveform and thus changes the timbre of the sound. Presence of higher harmonics in addition to the fundamental causes variation in the timbre, which is the reason why the same musical note played on different instruments sounds different.

Rotary Switch – SparkFun Rotary Switch Breakout

This is a single pole, 10 position rotary switch able to select up to 10 different states in a durable package. Unlike our other rotary switch, this model is much more robust and capable of handling larger currents and voltages. Though this switch requires you to use 11 pins and is not breadboard friendly we do offer a breakout board to provide easier access to its capabilities.

This is the SparkFun Rotary Switch Breakout, a very simple board designed to easily provide you access to each pin on our 10-position rotary switches. This breakout allows you to easily add a rotary switch to your next project without having to worry about attaching its unique footprint to a custom board or solderless breadboard. All you need to do is solder the 10-position rotary switch into the breakout and each pin will become available for breadboard or hookup wire compatibility.

Attack & Decay

——

This assumes a conventional ADSR where the sustain continues at the same level as the decay, till the release ramps to 0. The most common kind of envelope generator has four stages: attack, decay, sustain, and release (ADSR). Set the attack and decay levels of the ADSR. Attack is the time taken for initial run-up of level from nil to peak, beginning when the key is pressed. Decay is the time taken for the subsequent run down from the attack level to the designated sustain level.

In the typical synthesizer, the Attack stage begins when a key is pressed. The Attack stage usually offers control of duration that is, the amount of time it takes to ascend to a high voltage level after the key is pressed. When used to modulate a VCA’s level, this allows for everything from very sudden, abrupt note onsets to slow swells that gradually fade in from nothingness. VCAs have many applications, including audio level compression, synthesizers and amplitude modulation.

After the Attack stage has reached its end, the highest point in the envelope’s cycle, the Decay stage commences. The Decay stage also offers definable duration: in this case, the amount of time it takes to fall from this high level. By using moderate Attack and Decay times and a relatively low, one can create sounds that begin with a swelled attack: a sound that increases in volume, decreases in volume, and then settles in at a low, continuous volume.
