How about this for all-new, extremely fresh car news?
The new Lincoln MKC promises huge growth for Lincoln by appealing to far more fashion customers than ever before.
‘Fashion’ is a bit of a code word for TheLaydaies!!!
And pretty girls love to spin around to a great Kylie Minogue dance track. So leave this video playing while watching the MKC dance in seven colors.

Next challenge for me? Somehow syncing the beat of music to the animations.
Cue to Tom Burkart scratching his forehead trying to figure it out…
Beat Frequency Example Problems
Beat frequency can be solved mathematically by using the formula:
where f1 and f2 are the frequencies of the two sources.
A tuning fork with a frequency of 440 Hz is sounded together with a note played on a piano. Eight beats are heard in 2 seconds. What is the frequency or pitch of the piano note?
First find out how many beats are heard in 1 second.
Beat frequency = 8 beats = 4 Hz
………………………… ….2 s
Next use the beat frequency formula and solve.
There are 2 possible answers. There must be a difference of 4 Hz between the tuning fork and the piano note. Both f2 answers give us that difference.
Without more information, you cannot arrive at just one answer.
If the absolute value part of the equation above gave you some trouble, find the answer this way:
Just add the beat frequency (4Hz) to 440 for one answer.
Subtract 4 Hz from 440 to find the second answer.
Yes, this is what I do for fun. Sad/true, but perhaps will become a paying job at some point! =]
