Indiana Beat: Next Level Agenda by Indiana Governor Holcomb  | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
Get matched with Indiana college programs and incentives designed exclusively for returning students who want to finish their degree.
Idris Busari's insight:
Next Level Jobs is part of Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Indiana agenda to continue the positive momentum of our state. Under his leadership with support from the 2017 General Assembly, Indiana is taking the state’s workforce to the next level with a focus on the high-priority industries and high-demand jobs driving Indiana’s 21st Century economy forward. 

 Two million Hoosiers need additional training to compete in the 21st Century workforce, and there will be over 1 million job openings in Indiana due to retirements and the creation of new jobs by 2025. Whether you’re a Hoosier looking for a better-paying job or an employer looking for a better-skilled workforce, Indiana’s Next Level Jobs initiative can help.

Spotify is now deciding what music is politically acceptable for listening

Spotify is now deciding what music is politically acceptable for listening | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
Music is political. Musicians are political. This we knew. Turns out that music-streaming services, the digital platforms that are supposed to merely host all of our songs and albums, are as well. Following a week of tumult in American politics that began with a violent race-related protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, Spotify—the leading on-demand musi
Idris Busari's insight:
Following a week of tumult in American politics that began with a violent race-related protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, Spotify—the leading on-demand music subscription company, far ahead of Apple Music, Amazon, and other rivals with more than 140 million users around the world—has removed some artists identified by activist groups as white supremacist “hate bands” from its service in the US.

Ira Isabelle Fernandez's curator insight, August 20, 10:58 PM

The fact that we even have hateful music geared towards hurting and humiliating people who are racially diverse sickens me. Spotify is doing right by removing hate from their playlists.

Goshen dulcimer player rules Facebook world with Tears for Fears

Goshen dulcimer player rules Facebook world with Tears for Fears | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
Calls and the emails have been pouring in to Goshen's Ted Yoder, the hammered-dulcimer player whose folksy, casual jam session with bandmembers from Tears for Fears went viral last week.
Idris Busari's insight:
"Yoder began playing the dulcimer in 2007 following a car accident. After earning the national title in 2010, his reputation continued to rise. According to Yoder's biography on his webpage, he was profiled by the Internet publication Kearney Hub and on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. So, he wasn't exactly nervous when Smith and Wollam showed up at his door."--- #IntheBend #SouthBendTribune

Elkhart County desperately needs more workers

Elkhart County desperately needs more workers | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
Elkhart County businesses are now offering bonuses and incentives to get more men and women to apply.
Idris Busari's insight:
"Elkhart companies are struggling to hire good workers. Elkhart County manufacturers are now offering incentives to encourage job hunters to apply. And experts with an eye on the job market say the problem is only expected to get worse. They predict the manufacturing sector will need to fill nearly 25,000 jobs in the next few years. That number alone is nearly half the population of Elkhart. Drive down any county road in town, and you won't just see rushing commuters, you'll see a classified page."--- @WNDU

Idris Busari's insight:
Making a living from streaming royalties is tough for music artists, and YouTube has had one of the worst reputations in the music industry for a while. Even Lyor Cohen, the current head of YouTube Music, knows that many are skeptical about the service's ability to pay out a legitimate rate. Cohen wrote a blog post on Thursday to explain why he thinks that YouTube deserves another chance, and that his company is the highest paying music streaming service out there.

YouTube, ASCAP to Share Data in First-Ever Voluntary Deal

YouTube, ASCAP to Share Data in First-Ever Voluntary Deal | ResQ Records | Midwest Music and Entertainment, Indiana, USA | Scoop.it
ASCAP has a new plan to help its publishers and songwriters earn more money from YouTube: informing the video platform which of its members composed and published each of its songs within the vast sea of recordings and videos uploaded to the video streaming site.
Idris Busari's insight:
"The multiyear deal, effective immediately, both “substantially increases the aggregate amount of revenue” that ASCAP will collect from YouTube, and potentially boosts revenue further with data that can help YouTube’s content ID system identify more of the works that ASCAP represents, she says. The deal is also retroactive, meaning ASCAP will be compensated for its works streamed on the site since YouTube started operating on a compulsory interim license with ASCAP in 2013 -- and gives the society more leverage going forward."---BillBoard.com
