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.

Lasers Can Fix Your Banged Up Eardrums

Lasers Can Fix Your Banged Up Eardrums

According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), at least 37 million adult Americans have tinnitus. This condition pertains to ‘ringing in the ears’ in the form of hissing, roaring or whistling sounds. Due to elaborate innermost anatomy of the ears and complex nerve pathways, there is no known cause of tinnitus yet. That being said, muscular tension, damage in the cochlea, and brain injury are claimed to be the source of this condition. Nevertheless, one thing is certain: tinnitus is not imaginary.

 Treatment of Tinnitus

 Out of the three proposed sources of tinnitus, treatment for brain injury-induced tinnitus is still non-existent. Be that as it may, low-level laser therapy for tinnitus caused by muscular tension and cochlean damage are yielding good outcome. But what is low-level laser therapy (LLLT)?

 LLLT started through the efforts of Dr. Uwe Mitt of Hamburg in Germany. The therapy was then developed by Dr. Lutz Wilden of the Center for Low-Level Laser Therapy. LLLT is based on the premise that “laser energy in the red and near infrared light spectrum can penetrate tissues.” It is also said that LLLT is capable of restoring damaged tissues and reversing various degenerative conditions. Even if this approach is relatively new, it is said that LLLT is an effective method in treating peripheral and central nervous system injuries and disorders. However, its therapeutic morality in cochlear dysfunction, such as chronic cochlear tinnitus or sensorineural hearing loss, is still controversial.

 Based from published journal articles, the results of LLLT in treating tinnitus showed promising effects. In fact, 88 percent of the subjects from an LLLT experiment illustrated that there is a significant reduction in the intensity of tinnitus. There were also reported studies that produced negative results when they tried to mimic the original soft laser therapy administered by Dr. Wilden in varying intensities and sessions. Records show that those who had unsuccessful outcomes treated their subjects for 6 to 10 minutes per sessions, while some went through the therapy once or twice a week. But health professionals who offer LLLT argued that those experiments radiated their test subjects for no more than 100 minutes for several months. This is in contrast with Dr. Wilden’s original test where patients were treated with LLLT for 600 minutes in a span of 2 weeks.

How We Found Our Niche Market

How We Found Our Niche Market

Leederadio is the home of alternative Asian-influenced music, with everything from K-Pop and J-Pop to Deep House and Acid Trance. Obviously, we’re focused on a pretty specific niche, so how do you market to an Asian audience?

In general, diversifying your marketing endeavors to an international market, including marketing to an Asian audience, will allow your business to expand its customer base and have wider reach. In fact, the Asian community in the United States is considered as the fastest-growing race group in the country. That’s why businesses create marketing campaigns that are directed towards the Asian audience. Here are some tips on how you can bolster your marketing efforts that involve the Asian niche:

1. Exploit the powers of social media

Asians, particularly those in the Southeast Asia, account to almost 500 million active Facebook users and one-thirds of Twitter accounts. Social media users in the region are also heavily engaged in mobile chat applications such as WhatsApp and WeChat. On that account, you should avoid focusing all your efforts on a single entity, but rather develop a strategy that is applicable across all social media platforms and chat applications.

2. Become knowledgeable about your audience

This entails identifying who your target audience is. Since the Asian culture is very diverse, your efforts should be able to penetrate the right audience. Consequently, this will enable you to select the right media that will draw the attention of your prospective market.

 3. Go mobile

A study on the consumption pattern of those in the Asia Pacific region illustrated that the Asian market is engrossed on contents on their smartphones and tablets. As such, businesses should create content that can adapt on various technological platforms.

 4. Properly segment your audience

Rather than looking at the region in pieces, group your market based on interests, behavior and motivating force. Through this, you can create an approach where specific segments can directly relate to.

 5. Localize your marketing platforms

This does not simply mean translating your content to the local language, but rather creating a marketing feel that is specifically tailored to a certain market. For instance, employ an SEM strategy that will incorporate localized keywords that will perfectly describe your website and content. Another example is instituting multiple localized pages that will cater to a specified Asian market. In doing this, you should be ready to dedicate a lot of time customizing your page and its content.

Talented Asian Pop Singers On The Rise

Talented Asian Pop Singers On The Rise

There are many talented Asian pop singers around the world right now. In many ways the whole pop music genre suits their cultural mindset. This is, of course, a big generalisation, but it is also true in a number of important aspects. The pop music industry has always been formulaic, with producers and managers moulding young performers into made for television stars. Whether it was Kylie Minogue or Sheena Easton, Madonna in her early years, and so many more, there has always been a formula for the presentation of these artists.

Talented Asian Pop Singers On The Rise

BoA would have to be considered one of the biggest Asian pop singers on the rise, having crossed over into American movies recently as well. This very attractive South Korean woman is a vocalist with lots of talent and has even been called the Orient’s Britney Spears. But why sully a wonderful Asian superstar with comparisons to Anglos, when she is a veritable tsunami of dance moves and divahood. She began her pop journey as an eleven-year-old, being chosen like a princess from a fairy tale by record producers at SM Entertainment. Amazingly for a South Korean she is even popular in Japan.

Coco Lee is dubbed the Japanese Madonna circa nineteen eighties, as she is a dance club diva of the highest order. But what is this never ending comparing of apples with oranges, Godzilla with Uncle Sam, can’t these Asian chicks just stand on their own without the endless comparisons? Asia has always been accused of ripping off Occidental ideas, you know piracy and all that, and with pop star princesses nothing has changed. Coco Lee is a class act and just happens to hail from the land of the rising sun.

Suzy Miss A is another one of these Asian beauties, hailing from Korea and a multi-talented singer/ actress who has appeared in a couple of movies. Drop dead gorgeous in that delicate Asian flower kind of way, she has been called Korea’s ‘first love’. Well, if she was my first love there would not ever need to be a second love, unless she was run over by a bus, or some other unfortunate tragedy occurred. Suzy is the girl for me, stalkers get out of the way, I am coming through. These talented Asian pop singers on the rise are blitzing the airwaves and illuminating the screens at the movies.

Proper Posture: A Performer’s Advantage

Proper Posture: A Performer’s Advantage

“A good stance and posture reflect a proper state of mind.” ~ Morihei Ueshiba

Proper posture is probably the most common trait which a lot of performers lack in their early years. Correct posture conveys poise, elegance and power. It opens up your body language, boosts your confidence and shows you’re proud of who you are.

Why is Good Posture So Important?

Good posture is vital in giving out a great performance. Let’s take for example the opera or musical theater singers. Breath is needed to support the voice and having proper posture can help enhance their breathing to give them vocal strength, control and a better-sounding voice.

Posture affects breath support.  Proper posture can increase breath capacity as it creates the largest space possible in the chest cavity so the lungs can expand fully. Since it keeps the chest high and the rib cage expanded, it opens up a space so air can flow freely and progress unobstructed through the vocal cords. And with more air, singers are able to sing longer phrases without sounding like they are running out of air.

It’s no surprise then that a lot of performers seek the help of a chiropractor for posture check and posture correction as they know very well why an extremely good posture is a necessity for all aspects of a successful performance.

Poor posture is the cause of many physical problems, body aches and sometimes severe pain and dysfunction. Maintaining upright posture with a straight, stacked spine will also help them look confident, elegant and feel at their best which is an advantage for any performer. Making a few minor changes to their posture will result in an instant improvement of their performance and how others perceive them.

The Benefits of a Good Posture

  1. A good posture can help facilitate breathing.
  2. A good posture can help keep bones and joints in the right alignment.
  3. A good posture can help diminish the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces.
  4. A good posture can help prevent back, neck and muscular pain.
  5. A good posture can help prevent muscle aches and muscle fatigue.
  6. A good posture can help improve overall circulation.
  7. A good posture can help improve your appearance and image.
  8. A good posture can help avoid health complications.

Good posture says a lot about a person and everyone should learn about the subtleties of a perfect posture as it speaks power, confidence and success which can immediately change the way others see us, and the way we feel about ourselves.

How’s your posture?
