Noise

...different types of noise. Noise can be identified as anything in the process of communication that manages to interfere with the intended receiver getting and understanding the message properly. Environmental/physical noise This refers to anything external to the sender and receiver of a message that disrupts the sending and/or receiving of the message. Examples of this could be: - a stereo playing loudly - a phone ringing - being seated a long way away from the speaker - people chatting loudly around you  - cars driving or honking their horns Physiological noise This refers to a physical interference that can prevent a message getting through properly. This might include:  - hearing loss - poor eyesight - blindness - memory loss Psychological noise This is a mental interference between sender and receiver. This might occur if feelings such as love, hatred or irritation distract one of the communicators, causing the message not to be conveyed or received accurately. There is psychological noise present if one of the communicators is daydreaming rather than paying proper attention. Emotional distress or relationship problems might affect someone and cause messages not to get through properly. Semantic noise This type of disruption in the communication process can happen when the sender and receiver have a different understanding of the same word or phrase, which causes them to apply meaning to words differently. This sort of semantic noise......

Loud Noises

...Loud Noises Just make it stop, please, let it stop. I'm spending every minute awake wishing I was asleep, and every minute asleep in complete terror. Every breath seems to drain more life from me than the last. I would take or do anything to make it stop. I would sell my soul to the devil himself if I could. I can't take this anymore, I'm giving up. I was never a normal child growing up. Well I was always told by my superiors that I wasn't a normal child. My parents always telling me how unruly of a child I was. I was described as a ball of hell fire, who spat at the rules like they didn't apply to me. I was diagnosed With every hyperactive disorder the doctors had, Bipolar, ADD, ADHD. I felt like I wasn't wanted by my family. It was emptying and caused me to lash out more. Instead of just giving me attention they just shoved medication onto me. When I wasn't drugged out I was making sure my hatred for my parents was well heard. Some of the medication I was on made me feel like I was outside of my body watching someone else live my life. I never interacted with other children because my intelligence dwindled. I was always in a fog, It took more energy to communicate with others than any kid should have to. It was like trying to swim through high tide just trying to talk to others. My mind strained, my muscles ached, all tastes and smells were dulled down. I stopped enjoying food and stopped eating. I lost interest in sports, especially since I could barely pull myself out...

Vibrations impinge on the ear drum of a human or animal and setup a nervous disturbance, which we call sound. When the effects of sound are undesirable that it may be termed as “Noise”. Noise from industry, traffic, homes and recreation can cause annoyance, disturb sleep and affect health. Thus, sound is a potentially serious pollutant and threat to environmental health. The response of the human ear to sound depends both on the sound frequency (measure in Hertz, Hz) and the sound pressure, measured in decibels (dB). A normal ear in healthy young person can detect sounds with frequencies from 20Hz to 20,000 Hz. Noise measurements are expressed by the term Sound Pressure Level (SPL) which is logarithmic ratio of the sound pressure to a reference pressure and is expressed as a dimensionless unit of power, the decibel (dB). The reference......

A satire is an approach exploited to criticize a subject, or topic, whereas a parody is a style of satire. Don DeLillo produced his famous novel “White Noise,” around these two literary elements. Throughout his novel "White Noise," Don DeLillo utilized satire and parody to mock human nature related to consumerism, and the societal influence it created. In the scenes that reside at the supermarket, the satire of consumerism became much more relevant. The numerous encounters throughout “White Noise,” at the supermarket compel it to gain a heightened importance in the novel. Both the protagonist and one of the main characters, Murray, described the supermarket in an illuminating way. Murray described the supermarket to Babette by saying, “This place recharges us spiritually…Look how bright.” (DeLillo 37) Later on in the novel, after......

Effects of Population Density and Noise

...Effects of Population Density and Noise Population density is a term described as the ratio of people and organisms in relation to the size of the area they inhabit. This ratio is derived by taking the number of people in the given area and diving the number by the area occupied. As of the 2010 Census, there were 308,745,538 people in the United States. (U.S. Census Bureau, 2013). This means the population density is on average 87.4 people per square mile in the United States. (U.S. Census Bureau, 2013). Some states, like California and Florida have a density of 200 people per square mile. These figures are a prime example of crowding in many places. As population density increases, the noise from the population is going to increase especially in crowded areas. As people are moving into smaller and more confined areas, the ability to maintain their privacy and a sense of territoriality will change and be forced to adapt. In order to understand how population density truly affects people, the concepts of noise, privacy, territoriality, and personal space must be acknowledged and applied to the subject of populations. Territoriality, Privacy, and Personal Space Individuals will experience proximity or closeness with every other person in the world at one time or another. Proxemics is the actual term used when describing the person-environmental associations and covers the terms of territoriality, crowding, and personal space. Territoriality The term......

Noise Pollution

...noise pollution definition of noise noise is a sound ,especially one that is loud or unpleasant or that causes disturbance. Sources of noise pollution 1-Household sources Like food mixer, grinder ,vacuum cleaner ,washing machine and air conditioners can be very noisy and injurious to health. others include loud speakers of sound systems and TVS, ipods and ear phones. Another example may be your neighbor’s dog barking all night everyday at every shadow it see. 2-Social events Places of worship, parties and other social events also create a lot of noise for the people living in that area. In many market areas , people sell with loud speakers , others shout out offers and try to get customers to buy their goods. 3- transportation Think of aero planes flying over houses close to busy airports ,over ground and underground trains, cars , vehicles on road – these are making a lot of noise Effects of noise pollution Generally, problems caused by noise pollution include stress related illness, speech interference .hearing loss, sleep disruption , and lost productivity. Most importantly , there are two major effects 1- Hearing The immediate and acute effect of noise pollution to a person, over a period of time, is impairment of hearing. Prolonged exposure to impulsive noise to a person will damage their eardrum, which may result in permanent hearing 2- Effects on general health Include anxiety and stress reaction . the physiological manifestations are......

Vaseghi Copyright © 2000 John Wiley & Sons Ltd ISBNs: 0-471-62692-9 (Hardback): 0-470-84162-1 (Electronic) 2 NOISE AND DISTORTION 2.1 Introduction 2.2 White Noise 2.3 Coloured Noise 2.4 Impulsive Noise 2.5 Transient Noise Pulses 2.6 2.7 2.8 2.9 2.10 Thermal Noise Shot Noise Electromagnetic Noise Channel Distortions Modelling Noise N oise can be defined as an unwanted signal that interferes with the communication or measurement of another signal. A noise itself is a signal that conveys information regarding the source of the noise. For example, the noise from a car engine conveys information regarding the state of the engine. The sources of noise are many, and vary from audio frequency acoustic noise emanating from moving, vibrating or colliding sources such as revolving machines, moving vehicles, computer fans, keyboard clicks, wind, rain, etc. to radio-frequency electromagnetic noise that can interfere with the transmission and reception of voice, image and data over the radio-frequency spectrum. Signal distortion is the term often used to describe a systematic undesirable change in a signal and refers to changes in a signal due to the non–ideal characteristics of the transmission channel, reverberations, echo and missing samples. Noise and distortion are the main limiting factors in communication and measurement systems. Therefore the modelling and removal of the effects of noise and distortion have......

Noise Abatement

...engines on takeoff. Noise pollution became an unfortunate side effect of the jet age. The U.S. began enacting legislative controls with the Aircraft Noise Abatement Act in 1968. This authorized the FAA to prescribe standards for the measurement of aircraft noise. This act was later modified by the Noise Control Act of 1972 which now required consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). "The Congress declares that it is the policy of the United States to promote an environment for all Americans free from noise that jeopardizes their health or welfare" (Noise Control Act of 1972). Other federal programs provided money for noise reduction projects such as sound proofing nearby buildings to include homes and schools, and land acquisition to acquire homes surrounding airport property and relocating them to quieter locations (Government Accountability Office, [GAO], 2001). Land use guidelines and zoning laws addressed land use in the vicinity of the airport. They idea behind land use planning is that residential development should not occur in areas near airports exceeding a described decibel level, as well as limiting airport expansion in existing residential areas. Additional acts required aircraft designers and manufactures to follow FAA Aircraft Certification standards to achieve noise reduction. These standards were classified as “stages” with early aircraft classified as stage 1. These stages were based on noise limits according to......

The Effect of Noise Pollution

...The effects of noise pollution (final draft) Noise pollution is a common phenomenon in our daily society. It is any sound that is interfere with human life. The noise is commonly produced by vehicular traffic, construction sites and other sources. It is the unpleasant sound that may affect nearly every aspect of life. It is unlikely produce the physical substances such as environmental pollution, but it will cause a lot of damages to both human and animals in many ways. Noise pollution has serious effects on human health. This is a matter of great concern to the society. Hearing loss is the most probable outcome to the people who are always under this type of pollution. The sustained and loud noise can cause hearing loss. We may suffer from hearing impairment if we are exposed to this excessive noise for a long time. Therefore, occupational hearing loss is one of the common problems among the industrial diseases. Construction workers are most likely to be influenced by the noise pollution among all other jobs. The noise is hazardous to hearing in the construction industry. They are exposed to the excessive noise pollution in a long period. By retirement, many of them are having a noticeable hearing loss problem. This type of permanent hearing loss can never be repaired. It is sadly that it is impossible to restore hearing. Hearing impairment may lead to some accidents, because the people cannot hear the waning signals from others clearly, they may ignore the dangerous.......

These voltage signals, which are functions of time, are referred to as sound pressure signals. It is necessary to have knowledge of the frequency composition of these signals. Fourier Series and the Fourier Transform can be used to mathematically relate functions in the time and frequency domains. The use of these relationships in the practical frequency analysis of signals will not be discussed in detail in this course. A less mathematical and more physical description of elementary frequency analysis is given in this section. The purpose of an elementary frequency analysis is to determine how the “strengths” of the components of the sound pressure are distributed as a function of frequency. Consider......

Population and Noise

...The effects of populations and noise go hand-in-hand, or have a cause and effect relationship. If there are larger amounts of people in a smaller space, there will be more noise. The amount of noise a human can tolerate changes from each person’s own perspective. Most people have a desired level of noise, and a desired amount of personal boundaries. Cultural factors affect the way human beings determine what is appropriate personal space, or what is uncomfortable for each individual. Environment has a huge impact on what one considers privacy. The comfort level in which individuals interpret their own privacy varies, also has to do with how one is brought up and what their personal culture has taught him or her or privacy. For example, in certain cultures the people feel it is appropriate to keep the women covered up as much as possible. Traditional Muslims wear head pieces that cover everything except their eyes. African tribal groups will show their women wearing next to nothing, they may have their breasts exposed or it may be customary for the whole tribal community to wear nothing at all. If there is no stigma taught by the social norms of that society, then the people do not feel as though they are exposing themselves. Individuals are a product of their environment. If what they are doing is taught to be right, then they will not have the feeling that they are doing something wrong. Human territoriality is the predisposed feeling to control one’s own surroundings and...

White Noise

...Essay Exam 4 4. One character that we can analyze is Jack Gladney. when looking at the major personality traits and characteristics of Jack in the book White Noise. Jacks need to change his image due to his position at the College on the Hill is something that struck me as a gender bias. His need to look tough because of his position at the school is described in chapter 4 as follows. “ the chancellor had advised me, back in 1968, to do something about my name and appearance if I wanted to be taken seriously as a Hitler innovator” (Dellilo, 34) Jack later goes on about how he was advised to gain more weight and even grow out a beard to better represent what he was teaching. This describes how Jack has to fit a certain look because he represents Hitler and Jack conforms to these expectations. Jacks desire to conform and fit this image that he has been labeled with is shown again in Chapter seventeen when he runs into Eric Massingale, a fellow College on the Hill professor, at the mall. Massingale is surprised at how different Jack looks out of his college attire. Some or Eric Massingales comments are as follows “I've never seen you off campus, Jack. You look different without your glasses and gown” “You look so harmless, Jack. A big, harmless, aging, indistinct sort of guy.”(Delillo, 106-107) Jacks encounter with Eric prompted him to go on a shopping spree to overcompensate for his harmless image. Jacks desire to fit into his created persona shows the readers that he is......

The Effects of Population Density and Noise

...The Effects of Population Density and Noise Population density and noise can have many effects on individuals. Population density is the amount of people, which live in a particular area. Along with population density, comes noise; noise is typically an unwanted distraction. In this paper the subject to discuss is the concepts of territoriality, privacy, and personal space; examine how the concepts of territoriality, privacy, and personal space have become increasingly important as populations become denser; clarify the effect nature has on individuals living in urban environments, describe the concept of noise and examine the effect it has on individuals; and examine strategies that can be used to reduce noise in the workplace or in the living environment. Concepts of Territoriality, Privacy, and Personal Space Territories are areas marked and defended by their owners and often used for life-sustaining activities (Territoriality, 2004). The most common example of a person's territory would be his or her home because one tends to personalize and defend what is theirs. A person identifies themselves with his or her territory and any threat to that territory feels like a threat to themselves (Territoriality, 2004). A person feels connected to his or her territory and sees it as a means to satisfying his or her needs within society. Privacy is the selective control of access to oneself and group (Privacy, 2004). A person has the ability to decide who to allow in his or......
