CHANGCHUN [url=http://www.footballasromastore.com/Women-Gregoire-Defrel-As-Roma-Jersey/]Gregoire Defrel AS Roma Jersey[/url] , July 31 (Xinhua) -- In a small, enclosed booth, with lights, speakers and microphones, anyone can be a singing superstar!
In China, mini karaoke (KTV) booths are taking the country by storm. The sound-proofed KTV booth is typically equipped with an air-conditioner, a couple of chairs and headsets. You pay a fee [url=http://www.footballasromastore.com/Women-Gerson-As-Roma-Jersey/]Gerson AS Roma Jersey[/url] , put on the headset, close the curtain and sing your lungs out.
Mini KTVs are everywhere: shopping malls, cinemas, subway stations. They have a similar function to traditional karaoke, but in a more intimate environment.
"No matter how good or bad I sing, nobody can judge me, and I can just have my moment [url=http://www.footballasromastore.com/Women-Federico-Fazio-As-Roma-Jersey/]Federico Fazio AS Roma Jersey[/url] ," said Li Rui from Changchun City, capital of northeast China's Jilin Province.
Li said that in traditional KTVs, you have to reserve rooms in advance and there are always "extra charges" such as beverages and fruit.
According to research company iiMedia, the value of the mini KTV market in China will hit 3.18 billion yuan (473 million U.S. dollars) this year, almost twice as much as last year. And market is expected to double again in 2018.
For many urbanites singing is just a way of relieving stress.
"In the past, hosting a party in a KTV meant you had to invite a lot of people, set up a date when everybody was free and book a room [url=http://www.footballasromastore.com/Women-Emerson-As-Roma-Jersey/]Emerson AS Roma Jersey[/url] , which was not so easy," said Ma Yan, a music fan. "But with mini KTV booths, everything is easy."
Another reason behind the mini KTV fervor is the joy of sharing.
"Most mini KTVs allow you to record yourself and upload, so I can share the recording on WeChat and get a lot of 'likes' from friends," said Guo Hanyu of Shenyang, Liaoning Province.
Liu Wei [url=http://www.footballasromastore.com/Women-Edin-Dzeko-As-Roma-Jersey/]Edin Dzeko AS Roma Jersey[/url] , a professor with Jilin University, said that the mini KTVs put the user in control, which makes the process "a lot more fun and personal."
The interest has drawn a lot of investors. Prices of mini KTV booths range from about 10,000 yuan to 30,000 yuan.
If a machine runs 12 hours per day at 60 yuan an hour, cost is recouped in about a month. However, the reality is more complicated.
Besides cost [url=http://www.footballasromastore.com/Women-Diego-Perotti-As-Roma-Jersey/]Diego Perotti AS Roma Jersey[/url] , operators also have to pay fees to owners of the venues such as shopping malls and cinemas, but so far, at least 20,000 mini KTVs are in operation.
"In rush hour, customers have to wait in line," said a member of staff with Changchun Ouya New Life shopping mall in Changchun. "The machines are mostly used by young people and they are cleaned every day."
Using calculators intelligently in education is a big challenge for teachers. When an intelligent partnership is created with calculators it significantly improves classroom dynamics [url=http://www.usabasketballteamshop.com/chris-paul-usa-jersey/]Chris Paul USA Jersey[/url] , increase student confidence, reinforce understanding of mathematical concepts [url=http://www.usabasketballteamshop.com/chris-mullin-usa-jersey/]Chris Mullin USA Jersey[/url] , and boast problem solving abilities.
This article will give an overview of how to build a successful partnership with calculators in education. We will go through the benefits of this partnership and then we will cover some basic ideas of how to create mathematics laboratory experiments.
Let us take the graphing calculator as an example. This type of calculator gives the student the ability to visualize the problem, experiment with mathematics theorems [url=http://www.usabasketballteamshop.com/charles-barkley-usa-jersey/]Charles Barkley USA Jersey[/url] , and validate answers. The students can learn new theorems before they are introduced in class. This way the student can take an active role in his education. In addition, this will improve the student communication skills. Finally graphing calculators produce graphs faster and with high accuracy.
The meaning of studying graphs has changed in essence. Instead of learning the mathematics of how to make the plot itself the student studies the curve and experiments with its properties. The good student is not the one that does the plot accurately but is the one that understands the behavior of the curve at different points.
