Rhythm Game
RHYTHM GAME or RHYTHM ACTION is a genre of music-themed action video game that challenges a player's sense of rhythm. Games in the genre typically focus on dance or the simulated performance of musical instruments, and require players to press buttons in a sequence dictated on the screen. Doing so causes the game's protagonist or avatar to dance or to play their instrument correctly, which increases the player's score . Many rhythm games include multiplayer modes in which players compete for the highest score or cooperate as a simulated musical ensemble . While conventional control pads may be used as input devices, rhythm games often feature novel game controllers that emulate musical instruments. Certain dance-based games require the player to physically dance on a mat, with pressure-sensitive pads acting as the input device

Falsetto
FALSETTO (Italian diminutive of falso, "false") is the vocal register occupying the frequency range just above the modal voice register and overlapping with it by approximately one octave . It is produced by the vibration of the ligamentous edges of the vocal cords , in whole or in part. Commonly cited in the context of singing, falsetto, a characteristic of phonation by all genders, is also one of four main spoken vocal registers recognized by speech pathology . The term falsetto is most often used in the context of singing to refer to a type of vocal phonation that enables the singer to sing notes beyond the vocal range of the normal or modal voice. The typical tone of falsetto register or M2, has usually a characteristic breathy and flute-like sound relatively free of overtones —which is more limited than its modal counterpart in both dynamic variation and tone quality

In one, the left internal thoracic artery (internal mammary artery) is diverted to the left anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery . In the other, a great saphenous vein is removed from a leg; one end is attached to the aorta or one of its major branches, and the other end is attached to the obstructed artery immediately after the obstruction to restore blood flow. CABG is performed to relieve angina unsatisfactorily controlled by maximum tolerated anti-ischemic medication, prevent or relieve left ventricular dysfunction , and/or reduce the risk of death
