Japanese people received their ancient knowledge of music from China through Korea. They have very similar styles, but Japan uses more flutes, light strings, and is more calm, while Chinese uses more heavy strings and big drums that create war-like or celebration sounds. However, both countries have the same set of instruments. They only differ in musical style.

There are differences.

I notice that Japanese music tends to use negative pentatonic more than chinese music (and viceversa)

unique (i.e. obviously different) jap instruments include shamisen

unique chinese instruments include pipa, erhu.

common instruments include, bamboo flute, zither, drums.

they all have a common root but have branched off for hundreds or years. * 2 months ago

The Japanese had their ancestral knowledge of music from China via Korea. Very similar styles, but Japan uses more flutes, strings of lights, and is quieter, while China uses heavier strings and drums that create great sounds like war or celebration. But both countries have the same set of instruments. They differ only in musical style.
Traditional Korean music includes both the folk, vocal, religious and ritual music styles of the Korean people. Korean music, along with arts, painting, and sculpture has been practiced since prehistoric times.[1]
Two distinct musical cultures exist in Korea today: traditional music (Gugak) and Western music (yangak).
See Music of South Korea and Music of North Korea for contemporary Korean music.

Traditional music in China is played on solo instruments or in small ensembles of plucked and bowed stringed instruments, flutes, and various cymbals, gongs, and drums. The scale is pentatonic. Bamboo pipes and qin are among the oldest known musical instrumentsfrom China; instruments are traditionally divided into categories based on their…...

This paper will reflect the history of public health and significant events related to these agencies. The difference between public and community health will be acknowledged. Also information included on county, state, and national public health resources. There has been measurable growth and expansion over the years in regard to public health and its creation. Identification of Public health goes as far back as the 14th century. Towns and cities created a system known as quarantine to deter the bubonic plague (Black Death). Travelers and merchandise from places known to carry infections put in isolation. This procedure was in use until the 19th century to protect the public from the smallpox, syphilis, and cholera epidemics. Public health established services in 1798 as the Marine Hospital Service. This came about by early efforts of the federal government to provide health care to merchant seamen, protecting seaport cities from epidemics. In 1813 charitable services started by the Ladies Benevolent Society of Charleston, South Carolina, health care to the sick and poor. Another step toward the improvement of public health was the creation of the American Medical Association in 1847. Shortly after their existence this group formed a hygiene committee to conduct sanitary surveys and to develop a system to......

A Comparison

...A Comparison of Values In today’s society, having a moral obligation to others is essential when interacting with individuals or growing a successful organization as Kudler Fine Foods. Valuing and respecting individuals creates an environment in which everyone can live and work together in a more harmonious environment. Upon completing the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self assessment, reflecting on the results and my own personal values, I believe that Kudler Fine Foods and I possess similar values and moral obligations. As a manager of Kudler Fine Foods my ability to perform my duties that coincide with my values would allow me to further the growth of the organization and create an environment that is both positive to all stakeholders at Kudler Fine Foods. According to the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self assessment my ethical profile was said to be most closely aligned with Obligation. I have always believed that it is my obligation to do what is morally right. The assessment summarized me as believing everyone has a right to individual respect, which in most cases is true and I do believe that most people have a right to individual respect. However, when individuals fail to respect others, the right to individual respect is no longer a right. I do have a strong belief that in order to become a person of good moral character I have to do what is right for not only me but others around me. The self assessment was insightful, and I do...

Social Comparison

...Social Comparison and Temporal Life Satisfaction In his theory of social comparison, Festinger (1954) identified the idea that human beings have the drive to look at others in order to evaluate their own opinions and abilities. Social comparison is categorized into two forms, namely downward and upward. Downward comparison occurs when an individual compares to others who are deemed as socially worse off, while upward social comparison acts in the opposite direction. Over the years, there have been various studies on the directional effects of both upward and downward comparison on an individual’s self evaluation. According to Suls, Martin, & Wheeler (2002), both downward and upward comparison can lead to people viewing their situations in a more positive way. Another research study by Buunk, Collins, Taylor, VanYperen, & Dakof (1990), showed that downward comparison evoked a fear in individuals about ending up in the same situation as their less fortunate comparisons. In return, the fear of “it could also happen to me” made people have a lower level of life satisfaction. Despite the various comprehensive researches done thus far, there is still no clear conclusion on the exact impact and effect of social comparison on an individual’s evaluation of his or her own attributes and attitudes and abilities. This is even more applicable to college students who are constantly evaluating their personal abilities and opinions by making comparisons to their peers.......

...Analogy The clear message from the writer here is that caress Cashmere Luxury Body Wash will stimulate your senses. The feel and smell will be luxurious and extraordinary. The analogy is Cashmere Luxury Body Wash compared to being wrapped in a silky soft pashmina surrounded by the blend of white orchid milk and warm vanilla essence. Incidentally, ‘pashmina’ is said to be the finest cashmere wool. It would be difficult to say that this is a strong comparison. Cashmere wool, vanilla and orchid milk are a tough sell when compared to body wash. On the other hand, the comparison does provoke a strong desire to actually be wrapped in pashmina while inhaling the warm essence of vanilla and orchid milk, white orchid milk nonetheless. The smooth supple feel of the body wash could be compared to the feel of cashmere. Textures are easily compared so I could imagine the feeling on the skin may be similar. Fragrances too can be duplicated and used in perfumes, shampoos, and body washes. A direct and believable association can be made there. Vanilla is a somewhat familiar fragrance as it is used in cooking as well. Orchid milk however, is another story. I suppose orchids are popular and may be a recognizable smell. Orchid milk though perhaps not so recognizable. I think perhaps the figure of speech could relate more specifically to cashmere as opposed to pashmina. Cashmere is more recognizable when referring to fine wool. Perhaps the reference to orchid milk is to compare the......

Architectural Comparison

...Architectural Comparison Paper Jacob Willrich 11/20/13 General Humanities Architectural Comparison Throughout the centuries architecture has changed dramatically. Time is not the only factor of why buildings look so different; location/culture is also a reason for buildings shape and design. Technology available is one major aspect of how buildings are designed and built. Century after century humans have came up with new ways to design structures, in the beginning they were built with sticks and stones and now they are built with man made steel and other strong substances that allows us to build roughly 1,700 feet into the air. Roman Architecture is the second longest lasting structures, only behind the Greek’s structures, that are still standing. The Roman Era was from 500 B.C.E. to 500 C.E. The most significant architectural structure from the Roman Era would have to be the aqueducts they built throughout their cities. These aqueducts delivered over forty million gallons of water to each of their cities. The Roman’s used arches in almost everything they made. They improved the design of them and placed arches all next to each other to form tunnels for their aqueducts. Some other architectural structures of importance from the Roman Era are the Circus Maximus, Colosseum, and the Pantheon. The Pantheon inspired more works than any other Greco-Roman monument. The Early Renaissance from the years 1300 to 1600 was devoted to the ideas of Roman structures and...

...Comparison between California and Texas There are many things to consider and compare when deciding to move to another location. One has to consider the climate, cultures, economics, crime rate, and agriculture. Some states are so different, they don’t seem like they’re in the same country. Many people move to California or Texas for the vast opportunities. The climates in California range from cool wintry weather in the north, to sunny and hot weather in the south. Texas weather changes from hot to rainy and sometimes too cold with some areas with sleet and snow. Californians take pride in their location, and they are proud to live in one of the most diverse places in the continent of the United States. The environment plays a role in attracting good employees and keeping them healthy. Forbes in 2007 ranked California as the 14th greenest state in the nation, and gave Texas a rank of 34. The publication based its ranking on such factors as energy consumption and pollution ( news). The housing in California is a lot more expensive than in Texas. There’s no point relocating to another state if your employees can’t find a place to live.

This is an age old question that has played a prevalent role for over the past five decades. This paper will explore the importance of socialization, professionalism, and developing a scholarly identity through the comparison of the three following articles: “Socialization of Doctoral Students to Academic Norms” by Weidman and Stein (2003) whose purpose was to examine the relationships among the perceived informal structures of the climate in academic departments associated with the socialization of doctoral students to the scholar role; “Developmental networks and learning: toward an interdisciplinary perspective on identity development during doctoral study” by Baker and Lattuca (2010) whose purpose was to develop a deeper understanding on how doctoral programs shape teachers and researchers including the preparation of graduate students for academic careers and the development of an academic professional identity; and “Critical Thinking in Distance Education and Traditional Education” by Visser and Visser (2003) whose purpose was to establish a clear explanation of “critical thinking” and express opinions on the variations in student learning based on whether it was on campus or by various means of distance learning. The comparison of the three articles will include......

...syllabus. The insufficent economic resources make it difficult for the public universities to maintain high standard of education. The lack of funds is due to the less tution fee in the public institutes and the misallocation of the resources in annual budget. Public universities across Sindh including Karachi University, NED University of Engineering and Technology and Federal Urdu University of Arts suspended classes due to the budget deficit of Higher Education Commission . On the other hand most of the private universities although claiming to be non-profit organizations are earning huge profits by running them.This is because they have tranformed from educational to commercial hubs. They are taking large sums of money as tution fees in comparison with public universities but there is little which they are doing to improve the curriculum or to gain recognition.The problem of limited funds available is worsened by the mismanagement of available resources which is mainly due to corruption. The educational standards and practices of the public university differs from that of the private universities in many respects. With the exception of some big names like UET, LUMS etc, other private as well as public universities are often negligent towards improving the curriculum.The public universities are recognized whereas many private universities have not gained the recognition yet. The public universities have to stuggle hard with their budget than does the private......

Comparison Essay

...Comparison Essay N/A PHI/105 N/A N/A Comparison Essay The three main types of philosophy, also known as schools of thought, are continental, pragmatic, and analytic philosophies. With analyzing these three types of philosophy, we can compare and contrast them and see what they are and how they are used. The first school is continental philosophy. Continental philosophy is a general term, which is supplementary with the philosophical opinions that originated on the continent of England in the 20th century (Moore & Bruder, 2011). It has numerous theories for instance, there are critical theory, deconstruction, existentialism, hermeneutics, phenomenology, and structuralism (Moore & Bruder, 2011). The schools of thought accompanying continental which are the most important the two are existentialism and phenomenology (Moore & Bruder, 2011). The best known philosophers associated with continental philosophy are Martin Heidegger and Jean-Paul Sartre (Moore & Bruder, 2011). Some themes of existentialism are traditional and academic philosophies are from the uncertainties of real life, the world is irrational, and the world is absurd in the sense that there are not explanations that can be given for the way that it is. These are not all the themes for this school of thought nonetheless these are the most fascinating (Moore & Bruder, 2011). The second type philosophy is pragmatic. Pragmatic philosophy is a type of philosophy that rejects the idea......

...Comparison among the monopoly and oligopoly Competition in the market. A monopoly market contains a single firm that produces goods with no close substitute, with significant barriers to entry of other firms. An A monopoly and an oligopoly are economic market structures where there is imperfect oligopoly market has a small number of relatively large firms that produce similar but slightly different products. Again, there are significant barriers to entry for other enterprises. In a monopoly, the seller charges high prices for the goods because there is no competition. In an oligopoly, the prices are moderate due to the presence of competition. However, they are higher than they would be in perfect competition. Barriers to entry in a monopoly market are high due to technology, high capital requirement, government regulation, patents and high distribution overheads. In an oligopoly market, the barriers to entry are high due to the economies of scale. A monopoly draws power from the fact that it is the only viable seller of the product in the industry. However, in an oligopoly, firms can influence the market by setting their prices, marketing strategies and customer service. In oligopoly, firms may collude rather than compete. The cooperation makes them operate as though they were one firm. This changes the market structure from being an oligopoly to a monopoly. There must be some measure of competition in an oligopoly market structure. The geographical size of the......

...Comparison Matrix Paper Nyenye Matthews Grand Canyon University: RES-811 June 8, 2016 Comparison Matrix Paper At first thought, the journey of completing a doctoral program can be scary, nerve wrecking and/or cause you to have anxiety especially when faced with having to decide on a topic for your dissertation before you even start class. All of these feelings eventually subside once the newly doctoral learner starts their first course. The purpose of this paper is to compare three empirical articles on the topic of doctoral identity. Weidman & Stein (2003) wanted “to examine the relationship among an academic department’s informal structures and the socialization of doctoral students to the scholar role as reflected in their level of participation in scholarly activities”. Baker & Lattuca (2010), sought “to develop an interdisciplinary approach to the study of doctoral education as a path to the professoriate”. Visser, Visser & Schlosser (2003), investigated “critical thinking as a disciplined manner of thought which a person uses to assess the validity of something”. These articles address three different ways of how a doctoral learner can find their doctoral identity. Comparison of Research Questions Even though each study asked different research questions, it seems as though each group of authors developed research questions based on the same idea in mind; to determine if “Socialization of doctoral students to academic norms, developmental......
