UK record labels earned more last year from vinyl than they did from the 14bn music streams on YouTube

RedGuerilla music's insight:

Is that a massive surprise? YouTube is hardly a major revenue for streaming music and making money, it was never intended to be for that purpose, it was supposed to be free for everyone. Vinyl is still incredibly popular in the UK, especially among DJ's and collectors, gimme scratch proof vinyl over CD's any day.

Does a black hole create a hologram copy of anything that touches it?

Does a black hole create a hologram copy of anything that touches it? | Bit of Everything, Music, Movies, News, Alt | Scoop.it

According to Samir Mathur. professor of physics at The Ohio State University, the recently proposed idea that black holes have “firewalls” that destroy all they touch is wrong. He believes that a black hole converts anything that touches it into a hologram — a near-perfect copy of itself that continues to exist just as before.


Mathur says he proves that in a open-access paper posted online to the arXiv preprint server. In fact, he says, our world could be captured by a black hole, and we wouldn’t even notice. The debate hinges on a principle called complementarity, proposed by Stanford University physicist Leonard Susskind. Complementarity requires that any such hologram created by a black hole be a perfect copy of the original.


But mathematically, physicists on both sides of this debate have concluded that strict complementarity is not possible; that is to say, a perfect hologram can’t form on the surface of a black hole. But Mathur and his colleagues are comfortable with the idea, because they have since developed a modified model of complementarity, in which they assume that an imperfect hologram forms.


The information paradox: Physicist Stephen Hawking has famously said that the universe was imperfect from the very first moments of its existence. Without an imperfect scattering of the material created in the Big Bang, gravity would not have been able to draw together the atoms that make up galaxies, stars, the planets—and us.


This new dispute about hinges on whether physicists can accept that black holes are imperfect, just like the rest of the universe. “There’s no such thing as a perfect black hole, because every black hole is different,” Mathur explained.


His comment refers to the resolution of the “information paradox,” a long-running physics debate in which Hawking eventually conceded that the material that falls into a black hole isn’t destroyed, but rather becomes part of the black hole. The black hole is permanently changed by the new addition. That means every black hole is a unique product of the material that happens to come across it.


Interestingly, one of the tenets of string theory is that our three-dimensional existence might actually be a hologram on a surface that exists in many more dimensions. “If the surface of a black hole is a firewall, then the idea of the universe as a hologram has to be wrong,” Mathur said.  “It’s a simple question, really. Do you accept the idea of imperfection, or do you not?”

File transfer service WeTransfer has issued a statement following a report by Bloomberg last week that it plans to launch a streaming service in the near future. This is true, it said, though it is not aiming to go head to head with the likes of Spotify and SoundCloud, as was claimed (at least in part by one of the company’s own reps) in the Bloomberg article.

How 'the Blockchain' Could Actually Change the Music Industry

How 'the Blockchain' Could Actually Change the Music Industry | Bit of Everything, Music, Movies, News, Alt | Scoop.it

The blockchain is a decentralized system, with no single entity controlling it. The servers keeping its backbone upright are scattered across the globe, and for that reason the technology is transparent; everyone can see its anonymized data. It could also replace notaries, as every transaction is time stamped automatically and receives a unique ID. No exchange rates apply either, because cryptocurrencies are oblivious to borders. And because there are no intermediaries involved, monies ...

No Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning | Lisa Zyga | PHYS.org

No Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning | Lisa Zyga | PHYS.org | Bit of Everything, Music, Movies, News, Alt | Scoop.it

The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once.

The widely accepted age of the universe, as estimated by general relativity, is 13.8 billion years. In the beginning, everything in existence is thought to have occupied a single infinitely dense point, or singularity. Only after this point began to expand in a "Big Bang" did the universe officially begin.

Although the Big Bang singularity arises directly and unavoidably from the mathematics of general relativity, some scientists see it as problematic because the math can explain only what happened immediately after—not at or before—the singularity.

"The Big Bang singularity is the most serious problem of general relativity because the laws of physics appear to break down there," Ahmed Farag Ali at Benha University and the Zewail City of Science and Technology, both in Egypt, told Phys.org.

Ali and coauthor Saurya Das at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, have shown in a paper published in Physics Letters B that the Big Bang singularity can be resolved by their new model in which the universe has no beginning and no end.
