The pages of the history of the invention and construction of metronomes, are full of failure and impractical ideas, but if we can find some success. Why a tiny sector attracted so many inventors is a mystery. First attempts in 1581, Galileo Galilei discovered the isochronism of pendulums, i.e., discovered that pendulums equals (of any length) vibrate at the same time regardless if the amplitude is large or small. Close to a century passed before the theory of pendulums was successfully applied to the manufacture of clocks by Christian Huygens (1659) and George Graham (1715). In 1656 patented you first pendulum clock, which allowed to measure time more accurately.

Huygens was built several clocks pendulum to determine the longitude at sea, which made several trips between 1662 and 1686. These inventors solved the problem of pulses of pendulums using a leak or exhaust, that would keep it moving without interfering with its movement. This invention was the key the success was immediately used by those working in the field of metronome. In 1696, Etieune Loulie made the first attempt to apply the pendulum of a metronome. His team was no more than an adjustable pendulum with calibrations, but without exhaust to keep it moving.

It was followed by a line of inventors, including Sauveur, 1711; Enbrayg, 1732; 1771 Gabary, Harrison, 1775; Davaux 1784; Pelletier, Weiske, 1790; Weber, 1813; Stockel, Zmeskall, Aperture, Smart, 1821. Most of these attempts were unsuccessful due to the great length of pendulum needed to imitate some of the slow rhythms used in music (e.g., 40 to 60 per minute). In 1812, Nikolaus Winkel Dietrik (born-1780 Amsterdam, dead-1826) found that a pendulum weighted and double (a weight to each side of the pivot) could oscillate at a slow pace, even when they were short. Johann Nepenuk Maelzel, through some questionable practices, appropriated the idea of Winkel, and in 1816 began to manufacture the so-called metronome Maelzel.

Today, DIY is a hobby that has become a very efficient way to save money since you do not have to call a professional to make you things of the House and pass makes you occupy the time if you have much free. Whether in a home or rented old floor or in his own old House, only with a bit of zest and mana with a few basic notions of some materials, truly good results can be obtained: making small fixes, renovating and decorating or even up to Deconstructing and reforming certain structures. Moreover, the DIY is hilarious. In my case for example we had to reform throughout the kitchen, for that before I had to buy and see the electric oven desktop with one of the best alternatives for my new kitchen. Many people gives us a sactifaccion of the work itself and its results can be seen every day, is economical, enabling us to realize these desires that make always wanted to do and that because of the vile metal never get able to without having to hire professionals to make you work We were probably waiting in vain for several months. Specialized premises, DIY centres and construction stores give who likes this DIY all materials needed. However no, does not suffice to have the right tool and a good dose of enthusiasm to be a Sybarite's DIY. It is essential, also, have a basic preparation and a series of knowledge and techniques to learn how to run each operation and appearance must take into account when making any DIY task.

The International Monetary Fund, in its latest economic outlook for Europe report, sees much potential of job creation in our country. It also provides for Spain of the 0.7 per cent growth in 2011, provided that the appropriate measures are taken to make the labour market more flexible and cut root certain restrictions in terms of business, especially in the sector services. On the other hand they recommended to the Government a plan B that construct a budgetary consolidation and secure the deficit target of 6% the year coming, even though they were satisfied by the measures taken so far by the Ejecutivo.Son the advice and perspectives on Spain, but the report focuses on the future of the European Union. The main idea is that the economic recovery seems already a fact but it is being slow and uneven, with growth estimated 2.3 percent for this year and 2.2% for 2011, far already from the strong fall of 4.6% last year. Germany will remain the European locomotive, with a growth expected 3.3% but not more than 2% for 2011. However the IMF committed above all to Germany: possible that Germany surprised us with more activity than expected. That would have an effect on very important chain, indicates Ajai Chopra, director of the European Department of the IMF.The expert Economist stresses also that the current situation reflects rigidities structural in the markets for products, services and work, which will limit the growth potential of the area. Therefore glimpsed even many problems, among others the persistent volatility of stock markets and a lack of confidence in financial institutions.You can consult the guide of franchises to have greater repertoire of franchises in Spain.
