Austin’s cherished Old Settler’s Music Festival returns with new COVID protocol for 2021

Old Settlers Music Festival, which began in 1987 as a one-day bluegrass fest and morphed throughout the years into a nationally recognized four-day camping and jamming event, will take to the stage in nearby Tilman, Texas (about an hour’s drive south of Austin), for its 34th annual installment October 21-24...

Thanks for the PSA Phat Phoodies!! Woot!!! 🤸 The RK Audiology team thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing the importance of protecting your ears. 👂👂 #hearingprotection #earplugs #RKears #EarLoveAustin #nevercompromisethemusic

What's the first thing you notice about this picture?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chances are, it's my fancy Good Burger shirt from @homage or this sleek @gibsonguitar. Maybe it's just the excessively long beard or my cool creepy shadow on the wall.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But that's not what I'm here to chat about. Take a closer look (but not too close, because I'm sensitive) at my ear. I'm sporting custom-molded earplugs from @rkears. This ain't an ad, it's a public service announcement.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you've ever gone to a concert, you know they're LOUD. Whether you're onstage or chilling in the back with a PBR, the worst thing is having that ringing in your ears when you leave the show. Guess what: that ringing is your hearing slowly deteriorating. And if it keeps going down that path, well, you might as well call yourself a school hall because it's going to be bells ringing all the time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That's why I'm thankful for RK Audiology. I pop these plugs in whenever I'm in a loud environment and it reduces distortion and noise, reducing inner ear fatigue. The best part: I can hear everything going on clearly — it's just less noisy. So I still know when I'm playing the wrong chord or dropping the smoothest harmonies this side of the Mississippi. They work for sporting events, construction sites, and a whole lot more.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take care of your hearing. It's worth it.

Researchers Develop First 3D Sound Frequency Map of Inner Ear Using Advanced X-Ray Technology – HHTM 03/16/2021

Researchers Develop First 3D Sound Frequency Map of Inner Ear Using Advanced X-Ray Technology – HHTM

“This kind of map is comparable to a piano, with the keys being analogous to all the similarly coded frequencies. Unlike the piano, which has 88 keys, we have about 3,400 internal auditory hair cells, all of which encode distinct frequencies. The hair cells are attached to a 34-millimetre-long basilar membrane, and are also tuned by 12,000 outer hair cells so that we can hear every volume level. This information is mediated to the brain via 30 000 precisely tuned fibres in our hearing nerve” –Helge Rask-Andersen

February 2021 - Cold Weather Emergency Resources | AustinTexas.gov

From: http://austintexas.gov/weatherinfo

Temperatures and weather conditions in the region for the next few days are still hazardous. With temperatures not expecting to rise above freezing, the public is urged to stay off the roadways unless absolutely necessary. First responders are working to respond to calls as quickly as possible; however, they are also impacted by the same travel conditions.

To help free up demand on 9-1-1 operations, Austin Police Department has asked the public to not call 9-1-1 to report power outages and only call 9-1-1 if it is a life or death emergency. For non-emergency situations, please call 3-1-1, or use the Austin 3-1-1 app. Please note, 3-1-1 is experiencing high call volumes. If you receive a busy signal, please be patient and redial or use the Austin 3-1-1 app to submit a request.

In response to the severe cold weather event, the City of Austin is partnering with multiple governmental and public agencies to provide critical services to the community. We’ve included below information on critical resources and ways to find additional information. You can also find the latest updates through the City of Austin’s Twitter and Facebook.
