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.

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.
