What is silence cloth?
Silence Cloth is used on a dining table under the table cloth. It is a thick felt fabric that adds a soft barrier between china and silver and the wooden or glass table underneath. The term 'silence cloth' was given to the fabric as it silenced the clanging of dropped utensils. It also has the added benefit of protecting delicate china and porcelain place settings against chips and nicks.

Generally speaking, it has baffles inside that trap the gases. See the associated link for diagrams. ADDING: Oh, and silencers are not really "silent" either. Most of them ma…ke a powerful gun sound like a cap pistol. Some of them make a handgun or .22 sound like a CO2 powered pellet gun. I own a silencer and I have personally shot several others and witnessed several others on various kinds of guns being used right next to me at shooting ranges.
'The Silence Group' is a name used to describe an ultra secret shadow government that came to prominence in the 1950's through Major Donald E Keyhoe, a well respected UFO rese…archer and George King, the founder/president of The Aetherius Society, regarded by some as a 'UFO Religion'. It is believed that these mysterious individuals are responsible for the secrecy behind the UFO phenomena, which became extremely prevalent in the 1950's, 60's and early 70's. Through their orders many media outlets were forbidden from reporting mass UFO sightings, but were free to report cases that could be easily dismissed or debunked. The Silence Group operates behind and through numerous organisations.....who they are.....no one knows, or if they do, they speaketh not!
More properly called noise suppressors, they lower the loudness of the gunshot. Don't be fooled by the near silent 'thub thub' that silenced guns make in a movie - a s…ilencer's purpose is user safety. A gun is incredibly loud, the sound from its various components can often be 160 decibels. A silencer can reduce this by up to 30db, and when combined with suitable headgear, drop the volume to a safe level.
Gaining Faculties while at the medium of Sound : Silence is eloquence. The sound of silence is the pulse-beat of this Universe. Silence is the ocean into which all rivers of …all religions discharge themselves. Suppose a scientist put a particle of stone under his microscope and what he finally see will be particles flying at tremendous speeds inside an atom. He may examine the leaf, grass, a worm, and every time the final picture he sees will be the same. What would be beyond this rapid movement of particles which he cannot see? It is something that is not to be seen but to be experienced otherwise, and because he cannot see it he cannot say that nothing else is beyond. Philosophers have always known that whatever is beyond this rapid movement of matter particles is the wonder universe of Sound. Really sound is the basis of this Universe. Man is now endowed with five senses or faculties. He can see, hear, touch, smell and taste. He drew these from the Earth, where more faculties are lying which are not yet released to him generally. Not all creatures are endowed with these five and man also gained these one by one through evolutions. If one man gains more such faculties through some skill, the others will certainly deny their existence just as a blind man will deny the existence of anything such as sight and will insist on not to be compelled to believe on such foolish things. Perhaps the sixth and seventh faculty that particular man gains in advance of evolution may help him walk above the waves and time-travel, but our natural tendency, with our five faculties, would be to immediately deny him. The ancient Indian Rhishis and Saints knew about the existence of Sound beyond and being a basis to matter. They learned how to bring the earth and the human body to the same medium of Sound, thereby making the drawal or abandoning of faculties to and fro possible. It was why their natural and normal acts were took by people to be miracles. Though this theory was known to almost all great philosophers the world over, the ancient Indian Rhishis alone could exactly define the protocols for this Godly exchange. The great silence of the mighty Himalayas helped them in defining these deadly and risky experiments with Sound.
"Silence is Golden, But my eyes still see," means it is sometimes better to keep quiet and watch or observe what is going on around you. Think before you speak. …It's golden because it's rare, like gold - most people chat away without stopping to think before they speak.
Yes, somewhat; but there is little point to it.

Answer Silence can be abuse. It depends on the context or the situation. If a husband does not speak to his wife in any meaningful way and is intentionally trying… to hurt or control her, that would be a form of abuse. On the other hand it could mean that the husband is distracted by stressful aspects of his own life and isn't aware or doesn't know how to reach out and share his feelings. In a family setting, silence could be looked at as abuse for many of the same reasons. Or it could mean that a parent is distracted by financial problems or trouble at work and may not even be aware they are affecting other family members. A parent that intentionally tries to control or hurt another family member by withholding affection, approval or conversation may be abusive. There are certainly examples when a parent turns inward because they are concerned with something potentially embarassing at work or financial problems at home and are negatively affecting family members unintentionally. Children who are in abusive homes should reach out to other adults in their life such as a guidance counsellor or teacher at school. The important thing is to get help. Many abusive parents are that way because they grew up in abusive homes and don't know any other way of interacting in a family setting. Counselling can help the entire family - but the main thing is to get help.
Silence is the absence of noise.
The "Sound of Silence" is a protest-style song about people who refuse to make their voices heard on things that matter (or at least matter to them).
Because it is the only thing you can hear, therefore it deafens you to all other sound.
Compassionate silence very well may be the truest form of compassion we can muster. The minute we open our mouths we run the risk of judgment and scorn, if not implicitly so t…hen very possibly run the risk of what we say being inferred as judgment or scorn. Compassion is the kindest form of patience we know, and if we are silent with our compassion, then we are truly patient, for who amongst us speaks up out of patience? In Job 2:11-13 we read of Job's friends who have come to mourn his losses with him and yet they say nothing to him at all but merely stayed by his side for seven days and seven nights showing their silent compassion. Jane Austen, in Pride and Prejudice use the phrase at least twice to describe Darcy's compassionate silence for Elizabeth and the new age meditations of manifestation it is compassionate silence that is listed as the very first step to manifesting ones dreams. As brutal and uncaring as the universe can seem, indeed its steady march towards total destruction or endless expansion of coldness and darkness would make it seem as a brutal place and yet surely the universe must be compassionate for it is truly silent on our pain and suffering.
It gives your brain a rest in the midst of all the chaos.
Most revolver designs cannot be suppressed. The gap between the front of the cylinder and the rear of the barrel permits a large amount of gas to vent, which will still create… an audible report defeating the purpose of a suppressor. There is one notable exception to this. The Russian M1895 Nagant revolvers have been fitted with suppressors that DO work. The Nagant uses special cartridges that extend slightly beyond the forward edge of the cylinder. When the Nagant is cocked, the cylinder slides forward, and the mouth of the casing slides into the breech end of the barrel. This seals the gap. There have been other revolver designs that were silent, but they did not use a suppressor as such, instead using special ammunition that had a kind of a piston between the powder charge and the bullet. All the gas was contained in the casing and there was nothing to suppress. One such gun was experimented with by the US forces during the Vietnam war and some were created for Soviet spy agencies. None of these designs were made in large quantities.
It can be suppressed somewhat, but the loud report of the magnum round surpassing the speed of sound causes it to make a mini sonic boom, defeating the entire enterprise. You …could load some sub-sonic rounds using less propellant, slowing the bullet--- but then it wouldn't be a magnum anymore, would it?
