Perseus Project

The Perseus Project is a digital library project of Tufts University, located in Medford and Somerville, near Boston, in the U. S. state of Massachusetts. The project assembles digital collections of humanities resources, it is hosted by the department of Classics. The project is mirrored by the Max Planck Society in Berlin, Germany, as well as by the University of Chicago; the project was founded in 1987 to present materials for the study of ancient Greece. It has published two CD-ROMs and established the Perseus Digital Library on the World Wide Web in 1995; the project has expanded its original scope. Other materials, such as the papers of Edwin Bolles and the history of Tufts University, have been moved into the Tufts Digital Library; the editor-in-chief of the project is Gregory Crane, the Tufts Winnick Family Chair in Technology and Entrepreneurship. He has held that position since the founding of the Perseus Project. Ancient Greek works in Perseus are stored as beta code, although they may be reformatted for display into a variety of transcription systems.

To accommodate the defective Greek orthography for vowels, online dictionary headings use α^ ι^ υ^ for short α ι υ and α_ ι_ υ_ for long α ι υ. The Perseus Project supports open-source content, it has published code on SourceForge. Perseus is a contributor to the Open Content Alliance; the project supports the Internet Archive. All texts and materials believed to be in the public domain are available for free download in XML format from Perseus 4.0. For a specific example, see the download and license information for Murray's translation of Homer's Odyssey; some content is restricted by intellectual property license agreements with the holders of the rights to that material.

Blossoming Flowers

Blossoming Flowers known as Super Flowers Girl was an annual national Chinese singing contest for female contestants, organized by Qinghai Satellite Television between 2010. It was described as the Qinghai version of Super Girl and becoming another popular entertainment shows in the country; the singing contest will have air its second season in March 2011. Inspired by the many spinoffs of the Hunan Satellite Television's Super Girl, the competition was open to any female contestant from ages 18 through 32 regardless of her origin, appearance, or how she sings. Many applicants travelled long distances to take part in the competition hoping to become a star; each contestant was allowed 30 seconds to perform in front of judges and find out if they were selected for the preliminary regional rounds. Following the selection of contestants in the five regions, the competition began with the preliminary rounds. Preliminaries were held in each of the five locations. Television viewers were able to vote for their favorite singers.

Voting was conducted by text messaging. The regional preliminaries were followed by a weekly broadcast knockout competition held in Xining, Qinghai province. Viewers called in to vote for their favourite singers, the weakest two—as voted by the judges and the audience's weekly SMS— faced-off subsequently in a PK, short for Player Kill; the term is derived from kill-or-be-killed multiplayer online games. The singer with the fewest votes was eliminated; the first season of Blossoming Flowers aired from March 21. The finale is scheduled for early-September.

Eon Break

"Eon Break" is a song by American electronic music producer Porter Robinson, under the alias Virtual Self. It was released on October 25, 2017 as the first single from his debut EP under the alias, Virtual Self. Robinson wrote and performed the track; the song contains elements of Japanese video game music the musical dancing game Dance Dance Revolution. An official music video was uploaded to Robinson's YouTube channel, features abstract computer generated imagery accompanied by cryptic text referencing concepts like "angel", "virtual", "void". Robinson has stated in the past that he has been influenced by the game series Dance Dance Revolution, as it gave him the inspiration to pursue music, producing under the alias Ekowraith. "Eon Break" is noticeably similar to much of the music found in these games, games similar to it reflecting Robinson's influences. The song is dissimilar to what Robinson has produced as of late, namely his melodic and nostalgia inspired debut album Worlds, his 2016 single "Shelter", a collaboration with fellow electronic music producer Madeon, in both its release and composition.

The song has cryptic questions and statements interwoven throughout various aspects of its release, including its Twitter account and Facebook page. Fans were quick to discover that messaging the Virtual Self Facebook page would display another cryptic message. Much speculation has arisen as to what "Virtual Self" is, as Robinson has yet to release any statements on the subject; the track is written in the key of A minor. "Eon Break" begins with a laser-esque sound effect that emulates the song selection sound from beatmania IIDX. The sound is followed by an electronic choir, accompanied by a breathy female vocals and drums; as the song builds, a lead sound is introduced, reminiscent of many Eurodance lead sounds of the late 1990s and early 2000s. A piano with heavy reverb can be heard in the background further into the song, akin to the lead piano in Robinson's 2012 single "Language"; the song features a 180 BPM, half-time drum beat and bitcrushed sounds, not dissimilar from Robinson's earlier work.

What sets it apart, are the sounds themselves, which take on a far more retro, early 2000s quality. Official music video on YouTube
