VALLEY have released "hiccup," their latest left of pop-leaning banger which addresses the frame of mind that lingers following a significant split up, alongside an accompanying DIY music video riding the concrete wave at their local skate park.Watch the video below!"'hiccup' is the story of a person that you once knew everything about, and they knew everything about you. Maybe you were ghosted, unfollowed, or blocked. Regardless, the time you spent together feels like an illusion and despite your best effort to get over them, a small part of you still wonders what they're doing now," VALLEY shares. "There are so many breakup songs out in the world already, but this is our truth on heartbreak. The word "hiccup" felt like the right way to title the feeling of a "breakup" visually without being too obvious. Hiccups are like little texts your mind receives with attachments of photos, memories, and locations, where there's no "do not disturb button' to help process losing someone. Having those kinda' hiccups really sucks."
"hiccup," which was co-written by Lowell (Bulow, Hailee Steinfeld, Madison Beer), highlights the band's signature synth-drenched sound that positions perfectly crafted hooks, built to spiral around headphones over vivid and emotionally charged lyrical imagery. The track follows the blueprint VALLEY has established for themselves - building a safe-space for listeners to embrace when they're feeling alone during dark times of lingering negativity, struggles with apathy and other tremulous emotions and using their voices to help Gen-Z normalize much needed conversations about mental health.This intimate connection with their fans helped the indie-rock ensemble of friends built an organic buzz. With only a pair of self-written, self-produced, debut releases under their belt (including their EP This Room Is White and full-length MAYBE), the band has collected nearly 49 million streams on Spotify alone, a 2020 JUNO Award Nomination, support slots with Lennon Stella and The Band Camino on sold out North American tours in 2019, and a confirmed support billing with LovelyTheBand.Dive deeper into the world of VALLEY by checking out their last single "nevermind," which recently cleared 1 million streams on Spotify, and "There's Still A Light In The House," which has gathered 14 million streams and is taken from their debut full-length MAYBE.
Valley released their single "nevermind" in July 2020, which was then followed by "hiccup" in September. On October 15, Valley announced the release of their new EP, sucks to see you doing better which featured both "nevermind" and "hiccup", as well as four new tracks, including an acoustic version of "hiccup".
Hiccups are the sudden involuntary contractions of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles. They are generally benign and self-limited, however, in some cases they are chronic and debilitating. There are approximately 4000 admissions for hiccups each year in the United States. The hiccup reflex arc is composed of three components: (1) an afferent limb including the phrenic, vagus, and sympathetic nerves, (2) the central processing unit in the midbrain, and (3) the efferent limb carrying motor fibers to the diaphragm and intercostal muscles. Hiccups may be idiopathic, organic, psychogenic, or medication-induced. Data obtained largely from case studies of hiccups either induced by or treated with medications have led to hypotheses on the neurotransmitters involved. The central neurotransmitters implicated in hiccups include GABA, dopamine, and serotonin, while the peripheral neurotransmitters are epinephrine, norepinephrine, acetylcholine, and histamine. Further studies are needed to characterize the nature of neurotransmitters at each anatomical level of the reflex arc to better target hiccups pharmacologically.
Karah James, Rob Laska, Alex Dimauro, and Michael Brandolino, better known on stage as Valley, also known on YouTube as This Is Valley, is a canadian band who sang multiple singles, like hiccup.
Stardew Valley has been described as the Skyrim of farming simulators, and for good reason: this indie game boasts an incredible depth and variety of content. Fans are still discovering new secrets hidden within the game's code over five years after its initial launch and an active modding community ensures a steady flow of new treasures to find, adventures to go on, and characters to marry. However, this doesn't keep the game from having the occasional hiccup, as one Stardew Valley fan found when their farm animals began acting strange.
For 12V distributed bus systems for communication, networking, servers, and storage equipment, Maxim Integrated offers aseries of integrated step-down regulators with PMBus operating from 4.5V to 16V and requiring up to 35A. As with allswitching regulators, overcurrent protection (OCP) is a crucial and important operation circuit function. For thesepoint-of-load (POL) converters, Maxim implements an advanced valley current-mode algorithm that supports all MLCC outputcapacitors and fast transient response. The purpose of this application note is to clearly explain how to interpret the OCPdata sheet specifications.
To define and explain the valley current inception point, it is necessary to do a quick review on how to calculate thepeak-to-peak inductor current to provide greater clarity on the valley current inception point and the actual overcurrentclamp value.
In explaining Figure 1, the stated equation for IOCP(AVG) is the value of the average current once the converter operatesin current clamping mode. The IOCP value indicates the current OCP inception point at the minimum valley current. In Figure1 the current is increasing and when the current in the inductor is decreasing and greater (at its lowest point) than theIOCP value, the part enters the current limit upon reaching the Iocp threshold. Once in current limit, the current in theinductor actually ramps below the IOCP due to built-in hysteresis to ensure a predictable turn-on of the high-side FET.Figure 2 is an actual waveform of the inductor current going into current limit.
If the OCP condition (inductor valley current > IOCP) lasts for more than 2.5ms, the device shuts down and enters hiccup mode. The device subsequently waits 47.5ms before it attempts to restart. Repeated OCP shutdowns are each followed by such restart attempts. Waveforms for the part entering and exiting hiccup mode are demonstrated by Figure 3 and Figure 4 respectively.
The central component is located in the periaqueductal grey, subthalamic nuclei (Hansen and Rosenberg 1993) among the brain stem respiratory center, phrenic nerve nuclei, reticular formation and hypothalamus. The central component for hiccups lies in the medulla and is thought to be entirely separate from the pathways involved in rhythmic breathing (Davis 1970). Dopamine, gamma-amino-butyric-acid (GABA), serotonin, glutamate, and glycine neurotransmitters can regulate this central mechanism. The hiccup arc has modulatory input from catecholaminergic and serotonergic afferents.
The release of 5-hydroxyl-tryptamine (5HT) from the gut enterochromaffin cells and enteric vagal afferents may also lead to hiccups as seen in a case report following administration of cisplatinum, a chemotherapeutic agent (Jatoi 2009). The mental branch of the trigeminal nerve was also postulated to develop hiccups when stimulated via chin shaving (Todisco et al. 2004). Significant negative intrathoracic pressure may occur during hiccups that may result in hypotension, bradycardia, pneumomediastinum, and subcutaneous emphysema (Rousseau 1995). The mechanism of action of hiccups might be mediated through agonizing 5-HT1A and antagonizing 5-HT2A receptors to enhance the activity of the phrenic nerve, thereby inducing hiccups. This concept was supported in a case report in which quetiapine was successfully used to resolve the aripirazole-induced hiccups. This may suggest the partial agonist and relatively high 5-HT1A receptors binding affinities in the pathophysiology of hiccups (Gilson and Busalacchi 1998). It is postulated in a study that the GABA-containing cells in the nucleus raphe are the source of GABA-nergic inhibition of the hiccup center (Musumeci et al. 2000).
This is simply a take on another bartender cure-all, the bitters and soda. Long used to settle upset stomachs, ease hangovers and fill in for cocktails during sober months (trace amounts of alcohol notwithstanding), the combination also can do an admirable job at managing hiccups.
The key here is to add the bitters before the soda. This causes the final combination to foam up more vigorously as the carbonation trapped within the water reacts with the emulsified oils present in the bitters. Translation: It makes bubble-water bubblier, which many self-proclaimed bar savants say is what causes the combination to diffuse hiccups so well.
In years of anecdotal experience, this technique has almost never failed. The completely unscientific theory, based on nothing but made-up half-inebriated bar assumptions, is that forcing the mixture through a straw agitates it to make the combination it even bubblier. Meanwhile, forcing yourself to consume the entire drink without pausing to breathe overwhelms whatever the hell mechanism causes hiccups in the first place.
These remedies tend to primarily work for hiccups caused by alcohol consumption, rather than those that come about from other means (emotional stress, actual medical complications, etc.). Also, while you can substitute any brand of bitters, we default to Angostura here. As with most cocktails, Ango just works better.
The Emma Biagioni / Laker Showdown began Saturday October 1, 2016. The Report time for sailors was 0800 at the Macatawa Bay Junior Center. At 0900 the skippers meeting commenced with Hope College's Regatta Chair, Libby Reeg, Grand Valley State's Vice Commodore / Regatta Chair, Gary Micu, Jr., and race PRO Roger Gamache. The weather conditions for the morning were reported as an easterly wind at 5-10 knots, mist interchanging with rain, and temperatures holding in the mid to high 50's. First warning was scheduled for 1000 and boats were launched, from the floating docks on the East end of the Yacht Club, in time for the scheduled start. The first rotation had a small hiccup with some crews making the rotation at the front of the MBYC and part of the fleet returning to the floating docks. This was due to the rotations being announced at the skippers meeting at the floating docks and a later PRO decision to move to the front of the MBYC for ease and expedience. The remaining rotations went without issue, from the front of the MBYC, and were extremely efficient at getting A and B fleets back out to the racecourse. As the morning progressed Grand Valley State University Lakers 1 took an early lead with the Hope College Flying Dutch closely behind. The remainder of both the A and B fleets remained competitive and kept scoring interesting. Racing consisted of one and two lap races determined by the PRO due to wind and weather conditions. There were minimal boat issues, the only notable event being a boat losing its center board downing line in between racing. However, the center board downing line was fixed in between racing with only a small (5 minute) delay to racing. As racing continued to the afternoon the wind conditions held steady at 5-10 knots with some sporadic gusts reaching close to 12-13 knots. Wind conditions died off to 3 knots by 1600 hours when racing was wrapping up for the day. The club was also hosting a wedding at 1700 hours on the front lawn of the Yacht Club which led the race organizers to shift some of the spectators back toward the junior center while the last race was completed in order to show respect and give the wedding party and planner space to prepare for the ceremony. The wedding did not affect racing. Day one was completed at 1630 hours with Grand Valley State University Lakers 1 in 1st place, the Hope College Flying Dutch in 2nd, and Michigan Tech Husky One in 3rd. 781b155fdc
