typedef struct {
char szQuestion[256];
char szAnswer[5][30];
int iCorrect;
int iAnswered;
} QUIZ;

QUIZ a[] = {
{

"1. What ethnic group was largely responsible for building most of the early \nrailways in the U.S. West?",
{{"The Chinese"},{"The Indians"},{"The Australians"},{"The Americans"}},
‘a’, -1},

{
"\n\n2. What game was created by French mathematician Blaise Pascal, which he discovered when doing experiments into perpetual motion?",

};

void fctQuiz()
{
int iContinue;
int i = 0;
for (i = 0; i < sizeof(a) / sizeof(QUIZ); i++) {
printf("%s\n\na.) %s\nb.) %s\nc.) %s\nd.) %s", a[i].szQuestion, a[i].szAnswer[0], a[i].szAnswer[1], a[i].szAnswer[2], a[i].szAnswer[3]);
a[i].iAnswered = _getch();
if (a[i].iAnswered == a[i].iCorrect) {
printf("\n\nCORRECT!");
}
else {
printf("\n\nWRONG!!\n\nTry again(Y/N" );
iContinue = _getch();
if (iContinue == ‘y’ || iContinue == ‘Y’) {
–i;
continue;
}
else {
break;
}

}
}
}
int main()
{
fctQuiz();
return 0;
}

On the topic of clearing the screen:
You can try escape-leftbracket-2-J which will work on ANSI terminals:

printf("33[2J");

Or you can include the termcap library and try using tgetstr:

char *clrCmd = tgetstr("cl", NULL);
if (clrCmd != NULL) printf("%s", clrCmd);

To do this you need to include -ltermcap when linking your program and declare tgetstr() as returning char *. The latter way is more portable but more of a hassle to write.

Clarinet Virtuoso Giora Feidman Performs in Ntdtv’s Holiday Wonders on Broadway

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

The great, world famous clarinetist Giora Feidman will perform in Holiday Wonders at the Beacon Theater on Broadway; three shows, Dec. 23 and 24.

A legendary musician for over half a century, Feidman captivates his audiences with soulful play of both classical and modern music. During a career spanning more than 50 years, Feidman has won many awards. He was the clarinet soloist for the theme music in “Schindler’s List,” which won an Academy and a Grammy Award for best score. He was also twice given the “Classics without Boundaries” Award from the “Deutsche Phonoakademie” (German Sound Academy).

As one of the most important interpreters of contemporary music, over the decades Giora Feidman has evolved into a phenomenon. He is an artist, a discoverer and a sensation, a tireless ambassador with an act of undiminished appeal.

This holiday season, Feidman has chosen to be an ambassador for NTDTV’s wonderful cross-cultural, East-West Holiday Show. In order to perform at NTDTV’s 2007 Global New Year Galas in Berlin and Paris, Feidman declined other engagements. Feidman called NTDTV’s Chinese New Year Spectacular, “an event that will elevate you, will elevate your sense of beauty, and it will help you to raise yourself.”

Audiences everywhere are moved by Feidman’s performances. After a recent concert in Switzerland, people commented:

“Very deep and profound, but at the same time, broad as well. [He has] a very close connection with the people.”

“Very poignant, very joyful; it has the merry side, and the sorrowful side, too.”

“He attempts to combine all the religions together; I like his performance technique and style very much.”

What people experience during his performance is exactly what he wants to express. Feidman says, “It’s the music that will remind us that we are born as a member of one family to live together in unity, peace and tolerance.”

NTDTV is an independent, nonprofit Chinese language TV broadcaster, committed to contribute to pluralism. It reaches over 200 million viewers worldwide http://www.ntdtv.com/ . NTDTV’s annual Chinese New Year Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall ranked among Billboard Magazine’s top 10 shows in Feb. 2006.

In addition to the annual Spectacular in NYC and 26 major cities around the world, this year NTDTV presents its first Holiday Wonders for the Christmas season, premiering at Beacon Theater with a 50 member live orchestra, including musicians from China and the West, and a variety of traditional Eastern instruments that are sure to delight and surprise.

Bring your family and friends, and experience Holiday Wonders like never before – wonderful music and dance, and genuine traditional Chinese culture that will stay with you for a long time. http://shows.ntdtv.com/

Unusual Art Part One: Leaf Carvings

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

top chinese artist A new art form emerging out of China. Creating these leaf carvings is no easy process, taking the delicate precision from a skilled artisan. With a knife, the leaf is slowly scraped of its outer layers, eventually revealing a near transparent surface. Special care is given to keep the veins intact to preserve the stability of the leaf.

Artists prefer using the leaves of the Chinar tree, native to India, Pakistan, and China. Resembling maple leaves, the distribution of veins in the Chinar leaves are the best suited for sculpting–and they are considered ‘lucky’ in Chinese tradition.

The process of producing a single leaf carving is said to take months of careful work. When the artwork is finished, the leaves are then preserved and framed–ensuring that they will last for decades.

The music is Osmosis by Liquid Tension Experiment.
