Here's one example:

//Higher Order Functions: passing function(s) to other functions

function sing() {
    console.log("twinkle twinkle...")
    console.log("how I wonder...")
setInterval(sing, 1000);//pass the function sing() as an argument + 1000 is a milliseconds
setInterval(function () {
    console.log("I am an anonymous function");
    console.log("THIS IS AWESOME!");
}, 2000);//2000 milliseconds
