Double-drumming is a percussion technique, developed around 1900, allowing the use of both a bass and snare drum by one person, using drum sticks, prior to the invention of the bass drum pedal and leading to the availability of the drum kit. According to Len'Hunt' Doc, double drumming allowed one player to "beat a fast four-in-a-bar bass drum, doing a close roll on snare at the same time," whereas before it would have taken two percussionists. Accomplished through close positioning of the bass and snare heads, the cymbals were played by tapping a foot pedal called a "low-boy"; this style is best exemplified by early New Orleans Jazz/Second Line bands, Baby Dodds has been called the master. It has been proposed that either the bass foot pedal or hi-hat pedal was invented, or rather, first; the illustration in Blades and Dean implies that the low-boy started out as a stick laid over two cymbals and that the positioning of the snare and bass was facing each other, nearly touching at the bottom, achieved through use of snare and bass drum stands, while Nicholls describes the snare drum as being, "tilted alarmingly close to vertical."

Hessler and Famularo argue that the bass drum pedal must have come first, due to its less sensitive action. This process contributed to the standard drum kit layout and arm position, as most drummers chose to play the bass pedal with their right foot; when the hi-hat came along, it was left to the other foot, traditional grip made the use of the right hand, thus a cross-, rather than open-, handed technique, more comfortable.

Mikkel Hindhede

Mikkel Hindhede, was a Danish physician and nutritionist, born on the farm Hindhede outside Ringkøbing on the Danish west coast. Hindhede was the manager of the Danish National Laboratory for Nutrition Research in Frederiksberg in Copenhagen 1910 – 32 and food advisor to the Danish government during World War I. On his suggestion, much of the pigs were sold off and the number of cows for dairy was reduced by one third. Alcohol production was limited; the agricultural food freed. With these measures, not only could famines be avoided during the allied blockade in 1917 and 1918, the death rate sank to the lowest number ever; these results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1920. Germany had more food per capita, but a larger share was used for animal production, famine was widespread in 1918. Encouraged by his uncle, the physicist Niels Johannes Fjord at the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University, Hindhede was allowed to study medicine in Copenhagen and graduated with distinction in 1888.

After two decades as a general practitioner and hospital doctor in Skanderborg in Jutland, he returned with his family to Copenhagen in 1909, where he lived for the rest of his life. In his research, he studied the protein minimum and showed that earlier estimates of more than 100 grams per day were exaggerated, he recommended more rye bread and vegetables, less meat. Hindhede Nature Park and Hindhede Quarry in Singapore are named after the elder of his two sons, Jens Hindhede, a businessman and tea farmer in Singapore and Malaysia in the 20s and 30s; the younger son was industrialist Kristian Hindhede. In 1912, Hindhede showed. One of his laboratory assistants agreed to live on potatoes and butter for a year. Hindhede concluded that "man can retain full vigor for a year or longer on a diet of potatoes and fat". Polish scientists Stanislaw Kon and Aniela Klein confirmed Hindhede's findings. Kon and Klein used potatoes and butter for 167 days. In 1928, they reported that "digestion was excellent throughout the experiment and both subjects felt well".

Hindhede recommended people to eat a lacto-vegetarian diet, low in protein, as it is cheaper and healthier than a meat based diet. In 1920, in the journal Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift, Hindhede commented: "The reader knows... how I have emphasized the advantages of a lacto-vegetarian diet. In principle, I am not a vegetarian, but I believe I have shown that a diet containing a large amount of meat and eggs is dangerous to the health."

Sunshine Boy: The Unheard Studio Sessions & Demos 1971–1972

Sunshine Boy: The Unheard Studio Sessions & Demos 1971–1972 is an album by Townes Van Zandt. It was released posthumously in 2013. Sunshine Boy collects alternate takes, cover songs and demos from what many believe to be Van Zandt's most productive period, culminating in 1972 with the release of two heralded albums: High, Low and In Between and The Late Great Townes Van Zandt. Disc one contains alternate takes of several compositions, such as his classic "Pancho and Lefty", stripped of the strings and mariachi horns that augmented the original, "White Freight Liner Blues," which contains southern rock elements; the second disc contains intimate demos featuring Van Zandt and just his guitar, an approach many believe to be ideal for his poetic sad songs. Sunshine Boy has received positive reviews from critics. Fred Thomas of AllMusic writes, "Though all of the songs on Sunshine Boy found their way to official albums in more fleshed-out versions, these uncluttered takes offer a beautifully bare look at a young artist whose combination of astonishing gifts and troubled life would make him an American folk hero."

David Grossman of PopMatters insists the LP "captures the raw power of his songbook as well as any collection before it, several more thereafter." Brian T. Atkinson of The Telegraph states, "By close, Sunshine Boy's joys number many and they're hardly reserved for purists. Superior packaging and key alternate takes alone make this collection essential for casual fans." In a five star review, Kelly Dearmore of American Songwriter asserts, "Each song forces the listener to stop and wonder where Van Zandt's mind was taking him as a specific song was cut, or what might've been'really meant' when a certain line was sung. Such unavoidable thoughts and questions give this beautiful double record the weight of an historical document."
