In cycling, cadence is the number of revolutions of the crank per minute. Cadence is directly proportional to wheel speed, but is a distinct measurement and changes with gearing—which determines the ratio of crank rpm to wheel rpm. Cyclists have a cadence at which they feel most comfortable, on bicycles with many gears it is possible to maintain a preferred cadence at a wide range of speeds. Recreational and utility cyclists cycle around 60–80 rpm. According to cadence measurement of 7 professional cyclists during 3 week races they cycle about 90 rpm during flat and long group stages and individual time trials of ∼50 km. During ∼15 km uphill cycling on high mountain passes they cycle about 70 rpm. While fast cadence is referred to as "spinning", slow cadence is referred as "mashing". Any particular cyclist has only a narrow range of preferred cadences smaller than the general ranges listed above; this in turn influences the number and range of gears which are appropriate for any particular cycling conditions.
Certain cyclocomputers are able to measure cadence, relay the reading to the cyclist via a display mounted on the bicycle's handlebars.

At a welcome home party, Daughtry said he had declined the offer, but, he said, "he'd still like to work with them somewhere down the road."Daughtry's March 21 performance caused controversy when he sang a minor-key rendition of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line", based on a cover of the song by the band Live recorded for the 2001 tribute album Good Rockin' Tonight: The Legacy of Sun Records. Neither Daughtry nor the judges noted the Live version, making it appear to some viewers and critics that Daughtry was trying to pass off the arrangement as his own.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Daughtry defended himself. You say a lot of things in the interview, when editing gets involved, things get cut out for time constraints. I did mention in my interview that I'm doing a different version from a band I respect; the lead singer of Live, Ed Kowalczyk, called me to say,'Man, don't listen to that.'... It was cool to get that kind of respect." On August 2, 2008 at the Tom's River Fest in Tom's River NJ, Daughtry and Live performed Live's rendition of "I Walk the Line" together. Chris Daughtry was in the final four on May 10, 2006, found himself in the bottom two with Katharine McPhee; when asked by Seacrest who should be leaving, Cowell expressed that he believed that McPhee should be eliminated. Ryan Seacrest announced that Daughtry was eliminated. Seacrest asked him. An stunned Daughtry could only utter, "A little, yeah." The media grabbed hold of the surprise elimination and there was some controversy regarding the accuracy of the vote count on the night Daughtry was eliminated.

In music, a drum cadence or street beat is a work played by the percussion section of a modern marching band. It is stylistically descended from early military marches, related to military cadences, as both are a means of providing a beat while marching; each instrument will have a part that mimics a specific drum or drums on a drum set to create a sound similar to a drum beat. According to Hiro Songsblog a drum cadence is, "'a drumline piece played in a parading marching band between or in place of full-band pieces'. Cadences, are also:'a chant, sung by military personnel while parading or marching'."Cadences employ the four basic drum strokes and directly include drum rudiments. They have a wide range of difficulty, from simple accent patterns to complex rhythms including hybrid rudiments, are played by every modern drum line. Cadences are important from a performance standpoint, as a good drum cadence can make the band stand out from the rest in competition. Field shows are preceded by the band marching to the beat of the cadence.
Marching percussion consists of at least snare drums, tenor drums and bass drums, may include timpani. Cadence Military drum wikt:drum cadence Maroni, Joe; the Drum Cadence Book. ISBN 978-0-7866-3391-3. "How to Write a Drum Cadence", wikiHow.com

In this case, the CEO of Aptix, Amr Mohsen, forged a notebook in order to make the patent case stronger; when suspicions were raised, he staged a break-in of his own car to get rid of the evidence, resulting in charges of obstruction of justice. Trying to avoid this, he attempted to flee the country, only to be caught with an illegal passport and a pile of cash. While in jail for this offense, he was recorded offering money to intimidate witnesses and kill the judge.
