The National - "Heavenfaced"

Song from  one of the trailers of the "The Theory of Everything"

Breathing Through The Nose

I found out that I have been breathing through the mouth which seems to be the case for quite a few people. From quite a few articles I have read, there could be dangers from breathing through the mouth so today I have been trying to  breathe more  through the nose.

While exercising, it seems difficult at first but I heard  it does improve later.



Here are some of the articles I  have read

Conditional Probability


I have always found probability to be a tricky subject.. A tree diagram helps in dealing with more than one event but in  a single event, things can be different as  can be seen in one of the solutions from Khan Academy, World of Maths below:-
 Let A be the event that the first die is 1 and B be the event that the dice sum to 3We can find P(B | A) by finding all of the outcomes where the sum of the dice is 3, given that the first die is 1. There is only outcome that meets these conditions, and there are 6 total outcomes where the first die is 1,
Therefore, P(B | A)=16.

The video below appears to be dealing with more than one event.

Trisha Yearwood - " How Do I Live"

One of my favourite songs of all time. The main lyrics  for this song is almost the same as  "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" . Originally meant to be released as a single for the movie " Con Air" in 1997 - this song was a big hit for  LeAnn Rimes but producers thought she was too young  at that time so another version was recorded by Trisha Yearwood for the movie. The song was still in the movie but not in the soundtrack for the film. Sounds complicated and hard to say which one is better but  I think I have a slight preference for the movie version so  here is the one recorded for the movie.

Lisa Hartman - "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You".

As you probably know, this song was covered many times including  a few years ago by Heejun Han in his American Idol audition. This was a big hit for Michael Bolton who originally wrote the song with Doug James  but the first person who actually sang it, was Lisa Hartman for Knots Landing TV series back in 1981. She actually does a really good  version of it and I am surprised it wasn't a hit for her back then.

American Idol 14- Jacob Tolliver Audition

Here is Jacob Tolliver from  American Idol 14 audition  in Minneapolis.

Lisa Stansfield - "All Around the World"

Have been having a  cold and still haven't totally recovered from it. So long haven't written so decided to write anyway.

Back in 1989, this was a number 1 hit in UK.
