Tone là gì? Cách xác định Tone giọng như thế nào? Để có thể cải thiện được giọng hát của bạn hãy cùng chúng tôi tham khảo chi tiết trong bài đọc này nhé! Tone là gì? “Tone” là một từ tiếng anh, dịch sang tiếng việt trong lĩnh vực âm nhạc có nghĩa là “giọng”. Có thể hiểu “tone nhạc” là giọng của bản nhạc. Vậy giọng của bản nhạc là gì? Người ta quy ước có 30 loại giọng khác nhau được xếp theo từng cặp giọng trưởng và giọng thứ song song, bao gồm: Đô Trưởng (C) và La thứ (Am) Sol Trưởng (G) và Mi thứ (Em) Rê Trưởng (D) và Si thứ (Bm) La Trưởng (A) và Fa (thăng) thứ (F#m) Mi Trưởng (E) và Đô (thăng) thứ (C#m) Si Trưởng (B) và Sol (thăng) thứ (G#m) Fa (thăng) trưởng (F#) và Rê (thăng) thứ (D#m) Đô (thăng) Trưởng (C#) và La (thăng) thứ (A#m) Fa Trưởng (F) và Rê thứ (Dm) Si (giáng) Trưởng (Bb) và Sol thứ (Gm) Mi (giáng) Trưởng (Eb) và Đô thứ (Cm) La (giáng) Trưởng (Ab) và Fa thứ (Fm) Rê (giáng) Trưởng (Db) và Si (giáng) thứ (Bbm) Sol (giáng) Trưởng (Gb) và Mi (giáng) thứ (Ebm) Đô (giáng) Trưởng (Cb) và La (giáng) thứ (Abm) Lưu ý: Thứ tự các dấu hóa xuất hiện trên khuông nhạc lần lượt là: + Thăng (#): Fa – Đô – Sol – Rê - La – Mi – Si + Giáng (b): Si – Mi – La – Rê – Sol – Đô - Fa Xem them: https://danamthanhhoitruong.com/cach-chinh-vang-co-hat-nhe/ Vậy làm sao để xác định tone của bài hát chính xác? Xác định tone giọng giúp đệm đàn hay hơn, đây cũng là cách giúp bạn xác định được những nốt chính trong toàn bộ bài hát. Bạn sẽ thực hiện bằng cách nhìn vào số dấu hóa của bài hát để xác định cặp giọng song song có thể là “tone” của bài hát. Ví dụ: Bản nhạc không có dấu hóa nào thì giọng của nó có thể là Đô Trường (C) hoặc La thứ (Am). Còn bản nhạc có 4 dấu giáng (b) thì giọng của nó có thể là La (giáng) Trưởng (Ab) hoặc Fa thứ (Fm). Tiếp theo để xác định giọng của bài hát chuẩn nhất, chúng ta sẽ cần chú ý tới một vài yếu tố sau: - Các dấu hóa bất thường xuất hiện trong bài hát. - Ô nhịp mở đầu (không tính nhịp lấy đà) và ô nhịp kết thúc của bản nhạc. Thông thường, các ô nhịp này chính là âm chủ của giọng trong bài hát. - Nếu bài hát đã có sẵn các hợp âm để đệm hát thì sẽ dễ xác định giọng hơn, vì trong hầu hết các trường hợp, tác phẩm đều được kết thúc bằng hợp âm chủ. Lưu ý: Để xác định được hai giọng Trưởng và thứ song song từ số dấu hóa có trên khuông nhạc một cách dễ dàng hơn bằng cách ghi nhớ quy luật sau đây: Nếu sau khóa nhạc có các dấu thăng, ta lấy dấu thăng cuối cùng tăng lên một bậc sẽ có giọng Trưởng, từ đó suy ra được giọng thứ song song.

Ramiz Raja's Review Pakistan vs England Series 2020
Ramiz Raja, a former Captain of Pakistani Team, has not shown a positive gesture on squad selection made by Chief Selector, Misbah Ul Haq. He has some objections for some of the players sent to England for approaching Pakistan vs England Series 2020. A group of 44 members is chosen to be sent to England to play the three-Test series and three-T20 series. It includes 29 players and 15 officials, a big ever Pakistan squad in the history of the country. Chief selector uncapped batsman Haider Ali and hands-on experienced troupes Wahab Riaz, Shoaib Malik, and Muhammad Hafeez. These three didn’t get a chance to receive an agreement for the session 2020-2021. This Pakistan tour to England would be commenced in August and September. Ramiz Raja gave Captain, 5 out of 10 on Players selection for Pakistan tour to England 2020 Ramiz commented in a Youtube video, “Assortment made for Pakistan tour to England is variegated. I will give Misbah, Captain of Pakistani Team, 5 out of 10 for the player’s selection he has made. Satisfied with the selection of Khushdil Shah and Haider Ali but the whole approach would not bring good results to Pakistani Team.” Ramiz Raja also said by adding all old players in the team won’t give chance to new strikers in the team. When we talk about T20 series, newbies/youngsters should be given a chance to try their luck, Chief Selector has to think on this factor wisely. Pakistan squad needs to be equipped with experienced players It is said that Misbah Ul Haq has already been told that without Shoaib Malik and Muhmmad Hafeez they cannot win the T20 World Cup. Even then, unfortunately, it was not acted upon and took all old faces for England Test and T20 series. I considered it as a very immature decision made while choosing players for this Pak vs England series. Captain’s mindset sounds a young captain, which will not help Pakistan squad have the success I think. Shoaib Malik and Muhammad Hafeez are both experienced players although they have become weak fielders, their record is much better to let them be the part of this Pakistan vs England series 2020. Shoaib Malik in his record of the last 10 years, participated in almost 25 ICC matches and scored at least fifty runs. The same is the case with Muhammad Hafeez, he is also the best all-rounder in the world. His performance in the World Cup against New Zealand is worthy. Nevertheless, Misbah should take this into account that experience can play an important role in winning the T20 World Cup. Ramiz set another statement that if we look at the players, being highly experienced then it would be another scenario, therefore, experience in T20 is surpassed by taking in to account many other dynamics like attitude, fielding, reflexes. And if the reflexes are very low we cannot hit the big ones. If we consider all these factors, how can win be at our part? “Spinners with right length and pace can make you win the series”, Ramiz said. Ramiz added his comments for Pakistani spinner Yasir Shah,” might not that be effective” in his tour to England. Yasir has strived hard to take wickets but it comes of late but still, he is the part of that 29 players Pakistan squad. The other three spinners included are Imad Wasim, Kashif Bhatti, and Shadab Khan but in Ramiz's point of view, Muhammad Nawaz and Farzan Raja can be more effective because of their strengths to bowl as accurately as needed with variations of pace. Ramiz, moreover, quoted by Cricket Pakistan, The same goes for spinners like Yasir Shah, who might not be that effective because they also rely on shining the ball to deceive the batsman,” He has made another recommendation by looking at Pakistan squad that two important bowlers, Haris Rauf and Dilbar Hussain, should also be the part of this Pakistan tour to England, because of their strengths in bowling which is very accurate at their pace and length. “During the absence of saliva to shine the ball, teams won’t be able to win sessions of a Test match through the reverse swing and sideways movements,” Ramiz was mentioned as saying by Cricket Pakistan. “Only those bowlers will succeed now, who bowls at an accurate line and length just like in limited-overs cricket. Ramiz said saliva is no longer added to shine the ball but with some bowlers like Haris Rauf and Dilbar Hussain can prove themselves well on English grounds as they can bowl very perfectly with all line and length; where there is the cricket of limited overs. Haris Rauf has been nominated for this squad but Dilbar Hussain couldn’t take his place in this Pakistan vs England series 2020. Ramiz said our hopes are high but I am not satisfied with Pakistan squad selection and I give, Misbah, a poor rating for this conduct.
Significant COVID-19 Impact on the Sports Nutrition in Food and Beverage Industry | Data Bridge Market Research
COVID-19 Impact on the Sports Nutrition in Food and Beverage Industry The pandemic have impacted the food industry by up surging in their consumption owing to health benefits associated with them. Extended lockdown has impacted considerably in Europe, Americas and all over world and it has been created an opportunity due to their demand because of raised awareness regarding health and increased concern for maintaining immunity and thereby well-being of health.

The demand for fitness and sports products is also facing huge impact of pandemic. Isolation and quarantine has been imposed by governments which impacted on all aspects related to the sports. For instance, The absence of planned training, organized competition, lack of communication between coach and athlete, inappropriate training conditions are impacting on health of sports persons accordingly. Thus, governments across the globe have focused on encouraging athletes to maintain their health through proper intake of healthy food supplements. Major of local and international competition, such as European Football Championship and the Olympic Games in Tokyo has postponed for a year as health of coaches and athletes is the first priority of government. Hence, governments are focusing on maintaining health of sports persons by providing them proper nutritional intake in isolation. Pandemic also impacted on consciousness regarding the health. Thus, awareness regarding physical and mental health has been increased which provides the demand to the nutritional products. Sports nutrition products are manufactured to achieve fitness goals and to fulfill nutrients which depleted during the workout. They also include energy bars, sports drinks and protein powder. Manufacturers of sports nutrition prefer vegetable proteins, meat and dairy source as raw material for sports nutritional products. Owing to this COVID-19, health conscious people and sports persons are staying at home providing demand for healthy supplements and related products for maintaining fitness has been raised. According to online shopping portal of sports and fitness products NorthAlp, it has been noticed an increase of 300% in sales of the fitness related products in India. During the lockdown, NorthAlp has witnessed raised sales of fitness related products. Another factor behind the rise in online sales of fitness goods and brands is the growing acceptance of virtual exercise workouts with certified instructors and coaches. As gyms and fitness facilities are remaining closed owing to the lockdown, consumers are now more prone towards nutritional supplements to cater general wellness. The products for nutritional products are catering demand to maintaining health. Ingredients that enhance health and immunity are gaining demand as these ingredients are essential for muscle health and well-being of health. Among all sports nutritional products, protein powder is the leading ingredient of the sports nutrition market. According to Lallemand Health Solutions, 70% of consumers are being more concerned in sports nutrition as they are effective source of probiotics as well. Further, e-commerce is playing essential role for providing sports nutrition. For instance, According to “Nutrition Business Journal's 2020 Supplement Business Report,” the demand for nutritional supplement has been grown as they are expected to grow at 61.4% in 2020. Further, online sales are expected to reach USD 10.00 million in 2023 in which online sales of nutritional supplements will acquire 19.6% of sales by 2023. According to Aerometric Sports Products Pvt. Ltd., whey protein and other sports drinks such as glucose water has provided demand for sports nutrition across the world. Globally, sports nutrition is around USD 20.00 to 25.00 billion. Owing to the pandemic, sports nutritional products manufacturers and producers are prioritizing health and safety over productivity and profitability. They are looking for specialty vegan protein as they become more aware of techniques and strategies to manage the health. The pandemic has provided an opportunity for nutritional manufacturers to show their assurance to their customers by delivering customized support, representing their reliability and consistency as suppliers and augmenting their company’s biosecurity efforts across the board. For instance, · In August 2020, Hormel’s Ingredient Solutions has launched a new website for full catalog of protein ingredients. The new website makes help to view a product’s ingredients, packaging and shelf life. Further, this allows customers to quickly request samples and explore products, more about the ingredient solutions team and speak with an expert on the team. Hence, as shift towards healthy food is increasing, the demand for sports nutrition has been impacted in better terms. INITIATIVES Outbreak of coronavirus has affected every sector in the food services industry including sports nutrition. The industry has affected as the supply and demand are badly disrupted. For instance, · In April 2020, Cargill, Incorporated has started working by following safety practices at site including additional precautions at manufacturing facility, including temperature testing and prohibiting international travelling among others. However, with the increased demand for the healthy essential products, the manufacturers are taking new initiatives for products availability. Increased demand for protein bars, supplements, and energy drinks among athletes, bodybuilders, and even weekend warriors was one of the major factors in that growth,” she adds, pointing to findings that rising disposable incomes, urbanization, and the sheer building boom in gyms and fitness centers gave further cause to be bullish on the category. · McNamara “When your account for all the categories that have been subsumed into sports nutrition,” he says, “it’s a huge market. Diversification into weight management, athletic performance, energy, and even cognitive performance has transformed it from a niche category targeting gym goers to a broader consumer base looking to fuel their active lifestyles. And that’s a good thing, it has built a strong category.” - Brian Appell, Director, Global Communications, OmniActive Health Technologies (Morristown, NJ) “An economic crisis could impact categories that consumers consider non-essential, including products that are more lifestyle-targeted and not developed to aid serious health issues. The latter is, of course, subjective and for each consumer to decide, but we expect products addressing various deficiencies, pain management, diabetes, stress, cardiovascular health, or prenatal supplements to be less affected, to name a few.” · Mike Hughes, Head of Research and Insights, FMCG Gurus “Sports nutrition is a product category that may take a short-term hit as a result of COVID-19. This is because consumers who regularly go to the gym are being forced to adjust the way that they exercise due to restrictions, whilst everyday consumers may swap better-for-you snacks for traditional, comfort-orientated snacks. Consumers will not neglect other areas of their health due to COVID-19. For instance, many are recognizing that the virus is having an impact on their mental wellbeing and resulting in issues such as weight gain, something that they want to address. This means that they will pay closer attention to product claims whilst also assessing if an increase in ingredients such as protein and vitamin D can be obtained from everyday food and drink products.” · George Kuriakose, Head of Operations, Anaha LifeCare “In India and across the world, predominantly whey protein and some form of sports drink such as glucose water has been the prevalent form of nutrition. Today as we evolve, there are different forms of nutrition that are helping the athletes perform better every day and this is the way sports nutrition will evolve.” · Vijayaraghavan Venugopal, CEO of Aeronutrix Sports Products Pvt. Ltd., “We created a pay protection program providing paid leave and benefits to any team member who was feeling unwell, quarantined due to close contact or who tested positive. The first 15 days of coronavirus-related absences are covered at 100% of base pay and if needed, subsequent days of leaves are covered at our regular short-term disability coverage pay percentages with no limit. This pay program has been instrumental in our ability to keep our team members safe. We have been proactive in communicating often to ensure they know that it is okay, and encouraged, to stay at home when feeling unwell or if they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. If someone doesn’t feel well, there is no financial hardship to stay home. Our efforts exceed the CDC and OSHA guidelines.” · Hormel Foods Corporation. CONCLUSION As the effects of COVID-19 are felt around the world, sports nutrition manufacturers have been significantly impacted by raised consumption and awareness regarding health. However, regulatory norms around social distancing across multiple nations, reduced social gatherings were estimated to impact the meat substitutes and vegetable protein to a high extent. However, sports nutrition manufacturers have been seeing a stable sale in their products and hence stability in demand during the coming months of the fiscal year. Sports nutrition is one of the major consumer health products demanded by health conscious people, athletes and sports person who has raised the sales of protein powder, health drinks and other healthy supplements owing to impacting wellbeing of health. There have been vast changes in the consumption pattern among pet food which are particularly “at-home” has been gaining popularity. Though, there has been a stable growth in demand for sports nutritional products, the purchasing behavior among consumers have greatly disrupted the distribution channels for these products. Also, owing to the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been an increasing awareness among sports person, on healthy diet wherein, the demand for healthy ingredients in diet has been on a rise.

Ehhez persze az kellett, hogy több bírósági döntés is kimondja, hogy a hazai felügyelőszervek addigi korlátozó tevékenysége - a külföldről hosztolt online játékterek blokkolása és a reklámjaik tiltása – uniós jogot sért. A jelenlegi állapot szerint ezért Magyarország az online szerencsejátékot tekintve egy olyan szürkezóna, ahol a külföldi oldalakat és azok látogatóit retorzió már nem éri, ugyanakkor a játékosok vitás ügyek esetén nem fordulhatnak a megfelelő hazai fogyasztóvédelmi szervekhez. Na de milyen lehetőségek várnak arra, aki nem elégszik meg a Magyarországon egyetlen teljesen legális sportfogadási szolgáltató, a TippmixPro kínálatával és oddsaival? Szerencsére ma már nemcsak olyan külföldi oldalak nyíltak meg a magyar IP-címek felől érkező látogatók előtt, ahol magyar piacokra is lehet fogadni, hanem egyes szájtokon gondos magyarítás - ilyen a Bet365 vagy az Unibet - magyar sportfogadás is várja a felhasználókat, valamint elfogadják az idehaza is ismert és bevett alternatív fizetési módokat. Egy külföldi fogadóoldalon a regisztráció és a befizetés is gyors és egyszerű. Csak olyan oldalon regisztrálj, amit közvetlenül, például alternatív link vagy VPN használata nélkül is elérhetsz. Ez biztos jele vannak, hogy a szolgáltató számít a magyar játékosokra, és mindent megtesz azok megelégedettsége érdekében. Ha netán nem beszélsz idegen nyelveket, vagy nem ismered még a szerencsejátékkal kapcsolatos kifejezéseket, válassz egy olyan szépen magyarított oldalt, ahol nemcsak a kezdőoldal, hanem a gyakran ismételt kérdések, a felhasználási feltételek, a fizetési módok és a fogadási típusok is részletes magyar nyelvű leírást kaptak. Egy ilyen igényes oldal például a 22Bet magyar változata. Fontos megjegyezni, hogy egy külföldi sportfogadási oldalon is előbb-utóbb, legkésőbb a nyereményed kivételekor szükséged lesz a személyazonosságod és a lakcímed igazolására. Ez általában csak annyit jelent, hogy befotózod egy fényképes igazolványod és a lakcímkártyád, amit beküldesz a megadott ügyfélszolgálati linken vagy címre, hogy aztán egy munkatársuk leellenőrizhesse. Ezen egyszer kell átesni. És ha már ügyfélszolgálat, legyen fontos szempont az oldal kiválasztásánál az is, hogy van-e magyar nyelvű élő chates segítségnyújtás. Ezt például a Bwin is tudja. Hogy mennyire éri meg a külföldi bukmékereknek a magyar sporteseményekkel foglalkozni, sajnos nem nagyon. Inkább azt mondanánk, hogy lehet ilyen helyen találkozni egy-egy megtehető, pl. NB. I-es foci, női kézilabda vagy magyar vonatkozású nemzetközi meccsel, de a külföldi oldalakat ne a hazai sportfogadás miatt válasszuk. De általánosságban - a magyar piacokat leszámítva - a kínálat, a szorzók, a marginok és a fogadási lehetőségek terén is jobbak ezek az oldalak, hiszen nincsenek kvázi monopolhelyzetben. Amiben a külföldi oldalak még előrébb vannak, azok a virtuális sportok és az e-sportok, na meg a politikai vagy más, nagy nemzetközi érdeklődést kiváltó, jeles események kimenetelének fogadhatósága. Ha a sok sportfogadás után netán kedved támad játszani, számos bukméker oldalon pár kattintással átléphetsz a platform – szinten egyre többször magyarított - online kaszinójába. További jó hír, hogy a külföldi online játékterek kaszinóoldalainak a különféle bónuszait magyar játékosok is igénybe vehetik, általában ugyanazokkal a megjátszási feltételekkel. Aladár Kollár
