Singing and Dancing Benefits Children’s Development

Singing and Dancing Benefits Children’s Development

It has been a long held fact that singing and dancing benefits children’s development from a very young age up until they become adults. Even inside the womb, young mothers are encouraged to not just sing but put speakers and headphones against their bellies so the babies could hear. According to researchers, this helps build their brains and particularly targets parts where language, reading and math resides at. Whilst they are young, music helps them express their emotions. Ever see a child sway to just music? A melody calms and the words lets out its meaning. Singing to your young one strengthens the bond between parent and child. Whatever mood the child is in, singing calms, relaxes and soothes him. It helps regulate the child’s emotions and if done at night time, establishes a sleeping routine. Both emotional regulation and sleep contribute to a child’s good health. 

Dancing, just like exercise is good as it lets the body move. This movement is no longer aimed towards physical fitness but more for expression. With the infusion of technology in our daily life, children should be encouraged more than ever to move more for their health. Too many kids are growing up lacking in social skills because they are content and used to looking at screens for education and entertainment. They are lacking in communication, interaction, almost no feeling of empathy and have no clue as to how to read people and their emotions. Some schools offer incursions and school activities such as dance to help these kids cope.


Musicality is part and parcel of a person’s life. From a mother’s heartbeat to the sound of rain to the cries and wailing of sadness. If left alone our feet would tap to a rhythm, our heads strain towards a melody. Songs make a declamation piece easier to memorise. A dance gives direction to movement. Both are known to reduce stress. It increases our chances to optimal health. Singing and dancing benefits children’s development through muscle memory and an emotional downloading when needed. The advantages of the early practice of managing emotions through singing and dancing can be beneficial up to the child’s puberty until adulthood.

Hard Noise & Solid Sounds

Hard Noise & Solid Sounds

I have a confession to make, this fifty something refugee from a life well lived used to be a heavy metal aficionado. My first rockin roll love was dark and heavy, and the first album I ever bought was a headbanging opus. I was totally into one band and that group was Black Sabbath. I was 9 years old and I loved the Satan worshipping boys from Britain. Geezer Butler on bass, Tony Iommi on lead guitar, and, yes, Ozzy Osborne on vocals. These were my foot stomping and riff pounding heroes. I prayed at the dark church of the Black Sabbath.

A Thumping Beat Born of Evil

Hard noise and solid sounds were my parameters. Heavy metal was my home ground. My teenage years were a thumping beat born of evil. I painted all the walls of my bedroom black, except for one, which was covered in tin foil. My bong lived in my stinking wardrobe. I wore a black ribbed condom during my first sexual conquest. My friends watched from the window, whilst I lay down with a girl named Footyhead. The condom thing didn’t last long, I would fly au natural from then on.

War Pigs & Paranoia

Scintillating riffs screamed out from every Sabbath track on War Pigs, Paranoid, and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Black Sabbath Vol. 4 was that first LP I purchased at age 9. Solid stuff was what my world of music was made of. When I laid down on sheets stiffened by weeks and months of ejaculate I could feel it crack under the pressure of the decibels. I would not, even, let my parents into my room, when they came up the hallway complaining of the noise. Clouds of marijuana smoke would escape through the crack in the door, as I shut my parents down.

Driving Bass & Drums

Driving bass and drums, stiff pricks and cum wiped up with old footy socks, mates crowding around the bubbling bong, these are the memories of my childhood. The cry of an impassioned Ozzy Osborne and the sonic serenade of a Tony Iommi lead guitar riff. Technical Ecstasy became my favourite album as I got older.  It took me years to get into music that wasn’t grounded in a 4/4 beat. Things like the jazz infused Police were anathema to my idea of what rock music was all about. Heavy metal was in my veins for years and years.

You need transmitting equipment like transmitter, antenna and other associated equipment to send your signal to the world. Transmitting equipment is important when you’re broadcasting on the air. There are special rules about the kind of transmitting equipment for licensed station. Wait for construction permit before buying your equipment. You also need to prepare a technical plan to get your signal broadcast.

You need to get at least one or two soundproofed rooms with the right equipment. You will need a mixing desk, music servers, computer playout systems, recording equipment, CD players, microphones, headphones, telephone lines, etc. Office computer network, emergency alert system, link from the studio complex to the transmitter or satellite uplink may also be needed.

To broadcast music, you’ll need to buy a license. Licensing fees are needed to play any content that is licensed. Licensing fees are paid to performance rights organisation that pays artists and composers. Ensure that you have the right to broadcast music or any content. Check with local authorities to learn about local broadcasting rules you need to be aware of. You will also need a music library if you’re a music station.

It’s good if you can get by on volunteers to run your station. However you may want to hire part-time or full time staff to keep your station running smoothly. You may need to hire Disk jockeys, advertising representatives, accounting, fundraising and record keeping staff.

Setting up accounts on social platforms that cater to radio fans like SoundCloud, MixCloud, TuneIn and Audioboom is also important. Social media sites drive engagement and allow people to be up-dated with their favourite musicians.

Macau Jockey Club In Trouble?

Macau Jockey Club In Trouble?

Macau Jockey Club and Racing Complex opened in 1980 as the Macau Trotting Club to promote harness racing in Asia. In 1989 the track switched focus to thoroughbred horse racing. Horses coming from United States, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Canada and France train and race at MJC.  Macau Horse Racing Co. Ltd. runs this facility and continues to monopolise horse racing betting and online free bets in Macau. In its history of operation, MJC has faced financial losses. The club has failed to make an annual profit since 2004. The club seems to be in trouble because it has been losing money year after year. High maintenance costs ate up revenue leading to losses.  In 2015 the club’s total revenues were down almost 60% from the previous year.

Multiple claims of budget and mismanagement is being pointed out as the cause of the collapse in popularity of the facility. Although the club is still able to attract visitors with its Triple Crown series, some members are complaining on the reduction on the number of events. Their chief concern is the dwindling number of events for Class 1 horses. Too few events mean some horses cannot race on top-class races for months. This may potentially affect the horses’ long-term performance. The club can barely stage two race meetings a week. It has a difficulty coming up with large field sizes to simulate wagering and turnover.

The pool of horses has also dwindled. From 1,100 active horses 6 years ago, there are only 600 horses in training according to the website. But some sources said that the actual number of horses is only 460 and probably 30-40 of them are injured. The declining horse population creates a consequential decline in racehorse ownership. The number and the quality of jockeys riding there are also affected.

The club has also been criticised for its maintenance, public safety and sub-standard facilities. A Macau Derby Winner The Alfonso had been injured after a large piece of concrete in the ceiling of his stable collapsed. The falling ceiling happened many times before luckily no horses were hit. The president of Society for the Protection of Animals Macau is complaining of sub-standard animal welfare. He said that the stables are dirty and very badly managed. There is also no place for retired animals and they can be stuck in the stable for five months without going outside. A report also said that there are a considerable number of horses that are being fed and kept in confined spaces for months.

Club members accuse troubled MJC of mismanagement. Bosses at the Club have been accused by 19 disgruntled members who claim budget cuts left the club at a dire state. They claimed that a retired racehorse is living in an austere stable. The spokesperson for the Macau Jockey Club rejected the claims and said the concerns are now being addressed. The Club together with the government are trying to address the concerns of disgruntled members. They promise to get the operation back on track. The Club has also been in talks with South Korea and Turkey for a possible partnership that would help narrow the company’s losses.

Every Music Scene Fan Who Needs To Get Dumpstered

Every Music Scene Fan Who Needs To Get Dumpstered

Attending music event can be exciting and exhilarating. This fun activity can help to boost your spirits up for several days after the event. The experience can provide happy memories in the days to come. What makes music events like concerts interesting are the people who have something in common with you.  All of them share your love of music, your particular band or performer. There are different people who go to music events, regardless of the performers. No matter how cool the crowd is, there are some worst fans you could possibly meet at the show. Event waste management is becoming more and important. The organizers need to take out the trash, including every music fan who needs to get dumpstered. You know them and can recognise them easily.

The drunk
In every music event, there’s always the drunk. You can easily identify them by their smell. Drunken guy or girl can be most annoying. They will never shut up and continue to be loud the whole event. Their clumsiness can result in spilled alcoholic beverage on you. Try to avoid them and move away if possible.

The lead singer
The lead singer is person who sings to every song at the top of their lungs. You’ll think he confuses the event for a karaoke show. Being stuck with this kind of fan is irritating since you went to the concert to hear the band.

The song heckler
Some fans love to scream the title of their favourite song in the hope that the band will play them. They will loudly scream throughout the show, even when they know there’s a setlist for the artist. You’ll wish this people will shut up and just enjoy the show.

The uncoordinated dancer
These are the people who love to dance but they have no coordination. They just hurl their arms at people instead of dancing. Their actions sometimes result into jostling and inappropriate touching. They will just throw their hands in the air and don’t care what anyone thinks.

The photographer
Some fans just waste most of their time taking pictures instead of experiencing the event. They feel that they need to take pictures to prove that they were at the concert. These people can also be a #hashtag warrior to get some Instagram likes for their posts.

The talker
Some folks are more interested to talk instead of listening to the band. They just keep talking even when people are glaring back at them. They even have to shout to hear each other. People having full blown conversation during the event ruin the show.

The stoic
You can easily spot the stoic by his crossed arms, nodding head and slightly closed eyes. The stoic seems to have been truly lost in the music and he makes sure you know it. You’ll see this fan in every show. His face is as stoic as the guards in the palace. He remains unmoved by all the singing, dancing and merriment going around.

The inconsiderate tall people
Some people just seem to be blocking the view for rows behind because of their height.  These people stand at the ground in their full height with false authority instead of standing behind to let everyone see.

The dance advocate
These concertgoers want to dance all the time. They want to dance every minute even grabbing everyone to join them. They continue to dance to start a mosh pit when nobody wants to mosh. Beware, they might harass you to get up and dance with them.

The PDA obsessed couple
These set of fans are literally impossible to pry apart, they are attached to the hip. They are the couples who refused to stop making out while the concert is going on. These two are often found in the corner locked on the floor cuddling and will not be moved.

The super fan
You can easily spot them by their outfit. Most of them are wearing the merch of the performers from head to toe. These fans have all the official merchandise. They are ready for the concert, with signs, posters and tattoo of the artist.

Kids who like to smoke pot
These kids typically ignore the band onstage instead they devote their energy smoking pot. You can find them at outdoor concerts on the open lawn. They will spend the rest of the concert in a drugged bliss or ask anyone to skip out with them.

The drag along
They really don’t want to be at the event. Attending is against their will, they are there to chaperone or simply blackmailed. Examples of this include mothers at a rock concert or fathers at Taylor Swift’s concert.  These people just stand still when the crowd goes wild.

The nudist
They are the kind of fan who takes any article of clothing off when drunk. They continuously bump into you while undressing and screaming at the top of their lungs.

The dance police
This guy or girls likes to treat a rock concert like a fancy opera. They only want to watch while telling other people around them to sit down. They don’t want dancing or any disturbances while they watch.

Smelly cats
You can smell these fans before you see them. They can be drunk who spilled beer on themselves due to clumsiness. Others didn’t take a bath or just have bad body odour.


Hands Off Public Radio In A Commercial Space

Hands Off Public Radio In A Commercial Space

A huge number of individuals enjoy listening to music. Many carry their earphones with them on a regular day to day basis enjoying music on the go while they are busy fiddling their thumbs to the beat. Music does indeed play huge role to our lives and some people even feel that their day is not complete without listening to them. A few people even decide to play their favorite tunes in the public. People are advised to practice caution especially since playing public radio in a commercial space could be a quick way to a fine or meet your local law firm if you don’t have a license from APRA.

Before we look at public radio in a commercial space let us first consider APRA and what role they play in regulating fair use with regards to music. The APRA which is also known as the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority is a statutory authority of the Australian Government and the prudential regulator of the Australian financial services industry. A body set up by law which is authorised to enact legislation on behalf of the relevant country or state is what a statutory authority comprises of. Banks, credit unions, building societies, friendly societies, general insurance and reinsurance companies, life insurance and most members of the superannuation industry is what the APRA oversees. The same can also be said with regards to overseeing music which falls under copyright as well as fair use.

It should be noted that even if you own a huge collection of legally purchased music, you can’t just directly play your favorite iTunes playlist in a business as this will lead you to legal problems once people start noticing and reporting it.  With Music options that are available for use in a business have a few exemptions however and this includes playing music compositions that are in the public domain, licensed under Creative Commons, etc. Yes, people should be mindful of playing the public radio in a commercial space.

This is the reason why a huge number of individuals prefer listening to their favorite tunes over their respective earphones instead. However, if there is indeed a great need to play them in a commercial space, one will need to get in touch with a music licensing company that licenses recorded music played in public or broadcast on the radio or TV and then distributes the fees to its performer and record company members. They can also attempt to acquire a license from APRA as mentioned earlier, to help them with their endeavors. Having these in hand helps take of a huge load of people’s back as they are able to play public radio in a commercial space without getting into trouble with the authorities in the future.

The commercial space can be a bit complicated place to get into especially to newcomers who are unaware on how they work. With that being said, it is good to hear that there exist local law firms today that are able to help their clients with their respective issues and problems. These individuals work hand in hand with their clients in finding a timely and effective solution with their problems as well as share their knowledge and insights on a particular subject.
