Awesome Epulaeryu Poetry by Joseph

Joseph Spence is a wonderful author and poet. His words are very inspiring and uplifting in this Award Winning volume of poetry entitled, “Trilogy Moments for the Mind, Body, and Soul.” As a member of The World Haiku Association and a haiku practitioner, the haiku trilogy series written in sections of three verses in this uplifting book are very inspiring. I like the inspiring words of praise and how they are articulated for the soul in each series. Additionally, this is a wonderful and joy-filled book for anyone to read and enjoy.

The prayer poems in this book address many issues ranging from heart ailments to asthma, traffic accidents to chronic pain, and a lot more. The prayers are right on point and touched the soul of the reader. The messages of love and respect in his words for others are humbling. I have found his writings to be very inspiring and uplifting for the young and old. This book of poems is very captivation and his true talent is naturally demons

The Philosophy of Negotiation

It is fair to say that we have been negotiating since birth. We started as children, negotiating with our parents, family and friends.

When we were given options such as ‘if then else’, we tried to improve the conditions by negotiating a better deal. Occasionally, we even negotiated with ourselves.

Our ancestors negotiated with God at the creation and later with everybody else. We have improved and expanded our negotiating skills and today they are widely applied, not only known and practised by attorneys. Negotiations are conducted in diverse arenas, each requiring different negotiation skills, but we can find commonalities among them.

We need to negotiate with terrorists, kidnappers and bank robbers, where the outcome can be deadly, and we may save lives if we succeed.

We negotiate in shops and markets, where no sale is the worst case scenario.

There are mild and aggressive negotiations. We negotiate contracts for buying and selling a

Is The Democratization of the Music Business a Complete Failure?

I grew up in the 1980’s. That was the era of the big labels, big tours, and big hair! Lot’s of $$$ was made. Bands from the 60’s and early 70’s would talk about how they had been screwed but that these 80’s bands were raking it in. Go back and watch Billy Joel’s or John Fogarty’s episodes of “Behind the Music”. Bands were getting screwed over left and right from everyone including promoters, managers, and record labels. The attitude among the ruling elite of the music business was, “These are hippies. Keep ’em doped up and make sure they have a lot of groupies and they’ll be happy. They don’t know how to handle money. So, we’ll just take care of that for them.” This is why many artists from the late 60’s and early 70’s ended up penniless once the ringing in everyone’s ears had faded.

Thankfully, by the end of the 1970’s things were changing and in the 1980’s

Music Licensing Companies

The music industry revenue has encountered steadier growth for the past decade and the experts projected it will stay in that course for the foreseeable future. The numbers may spike up with the growing popularity of streaming among the younger generation. As the physical sales wane in the turn of 2010, other means of sales had emerged and millions of independent musicians turned to licensing their music in hopes to monetize their work. The internet paved the way for more business opportunities and almost all of them require music content. There are more music revenues to be collected compared a decade ago as we have more TV show, ads, commercials, campaigns, video games, movies, films, establishments and companies today. Every single industry needs music content to operate in order to appeal to the public. It is part of their marketing plan and these industries require the services of music licensing companies to facilitate such needs.

As a matter of fact, the US music indus

Famous Magicians and Escape Artists

While the art of magic and the conjuring arts has existed since pagan times through priests, witches, etc., it is the ones who dare – the magicians who defy death and show acts that we ourselves wouldn’t even dare think of – that have gained the most following and become the most remembered. Here are a few whom we believe rank among the best and most popular of all time.

Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin (1805-1871). Jean Robert-Houdin was the son of a French clockmaker, whose interest in magic began when he received from a bookseller – erroneously – a two-volume set of books on conjuring called Scientific Amusements instead of the books on clock making that he had reserved. He went on to study magic and opened the first magic theatre in France. Houdin is considered the Father of Modern Magic and it is from him that Harry Houdini took his stage name. Among his most popular acts were Second Sight, a two-person mind reading act where his blindfolded assis

Indian Miniature Painting – History and Techniques

Miniature paintings are one of the many things that make an Indian proud of his country’s rich cultural heritage. Miniature paintings originated long back in the history of India. Indian Paintings can be broadly classified as the murals and miniatures. Murals are huge works executed on the walls of solid structures, as in the Ajanta Caves and the Kailashnath temple.

Miniature paintings are executed on a very small scale on perishable material such as paper and cloth. The Palas of Bengal were the pioneers of miniature painting in India. The art of miniature painting reached its glory during the Mughal period. The tradition of miniature paintings was carried forward by the painters of different Rajasthani schools of painting like the Bundi, Kishangarh, Jaipur, Marwar and Mewar. The Ragamala paintings also belong to this school.

Indian miniature paintings are renowned worldwide for their beauty, finesse and impeccable detailing. The history of Indian Miniature Paint

The Three Types of Poetry

Poetry throughout history has always been divided in some form. Today, there are hundreds of forms developed around the world with each culture and region specializing in its own version of the craft. However, we are still able to put poetry into non-specific genres due to their overall themes. Poetry enthusiasts today divide the craft into three main topics: lyric, narrative, and dramatic.

Little is known about literature in the ancient past. However, we do know that poetry has existed for thousands of years. We also have records showing the overall themes of such writings. In Ancient Greece, for example, we know that poetry was divided into three main types of poetry by the great philosopher Aristotle; they were comedy, tragedy, and epic. He claimed comedy was simply an imitation of what is inferior and possibly laughable. He claimed the other two, tragedy and epic, were similar in that they both portray suffering and produce effects and emotions in their readers. The only

Tips on How to Choose the Right Music Course for a Career in the Music Industry

Selection of the correct music course is crucial. For some, the aim is to get into the music industry as a recording artist at a label or other connected role, others to play in a band or orchestra or become music teachers. The choices are wide and it can be daunting, knowing you will invest a good chunk of your life and money in something where you’re not certain of the outcome. It can feel like a gamble.

Apart from talent (this is a must) getting a job in the music industry requires skill and experience (if you are lucky enough to get a work placement or internship) in addition to a qualification. Budget is also an important factor while choosing a music course. If you play an instrument, some (like brass and wind) can be very expensive. There may well be continuous investment in your instrument as well as the private lessons while studying. If you intent to apply to a top institution which has links to the industry, be aware of the high fees charged.
