This article was VERY short, but I'm always looking for a great book to read to better my knowledge in this ever-changing industry. My dad always said, 'Obtaining it is the easy part, keeping it is the hard part.' There are many resources out there on how to start a music career but not too many that I know of to 'sustain' that said career.

The source is very reliable. You can get a great preview of the book on the link provided along with a detailed background on the author. The sight also provides a bunch of great sources. This source had the authority, objectivity, accuracy, and currency when using the 'Evaluating Sources' guide.

I haven't ready the book yet, but the article was very convincing. I would actually be interested in purchasing the book. I believe in my eyes that this has great potential to be a major resource for entry-level audio industry professionals.

Jason Green's curator insight, July 26, 10:58 AM
Starting a career in the music industry can be very difficult to do , however having a game plan is the key. Knowing the business side is the most important part. This article does a good job of discussing having a manager, having a distribution plan and the importance of getting the business side of things squared aware first.  Many individuals just dive in to the music careers without taking time to focus on the business side and obligations and this can be a crucial mistake.

Creativity and the Brain: What We Can Learn From Jazz Musicians

Creativity and the Brain: What We Can Learn From Jazz Musicians | StarPow-R  Let’s CELEBRATE our local heroes | Scoop.it
Listening to jazz musicians improvise, how the piano player’s chords toy with the sax player’s runs and the standup bass player’s beats, it may seem like their music-making process is simply magic. But research of jazz musicians’ brain activity as they improvise is helping shed light on the neuroscience behind creativity, and it turns out creating that magic is not as serendipitous a process as we might think.

“I started looking at jazz musicians playing the blues as a way to understand how the creative brain emerges from a neuroscience perspective,” said Charles Limb, associate professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at John’s Hopkins University.

Limb, a jazz musician and music lover, and his team designed a plastic keyboard that jazz musicians could both play and hear while they were inside an MRI machine. Limb asked the musicians to play a memorized piece of music, then improvise with another musician in the control room. Limb captured images of their brains as they played.

Causes for Low Back Pain Among Nurses

Causes for Low Back Pain Among Nurses | StarPow-R  Let’s CELEBRATE our local heroes | Scoop.it

A study conducted in an acute care facility in Hong Kong to determine the occurrence of back pain in nurses reported that 80.9% of the participating individuals suffered from some form of back pain throughout their careers with one third of them experiencing back pain at least once a month. The study also concluded that the contributing factors for back injuries among those nurses were caused from lifting and transferring patients, where stooping was recognized at the most common factor contributing to back complications. Most diagnosed cases of back pain were reported on orthopedic wards, closely followed by elderly or geriatric nursing. According to the study, back pain as a result of standing for extended periods of time was not considered significant.

Another study conducted to determine the impact of back pain in nurses concluded that depression is associated with chronic low back pain and other symptoms which could exhibit as low morale and lower job performance among nurses. Additionally, the study also showed that two thirds of the nurse sample population suffered from back pain more than twice a year.

Dr. Alex Jimenez's curator insight, July 7, 2016 4:47 PM

Nurses are considered to be the most crucial component in the delivery of primary care within any public or private healthcare setting. Throughout this environment, regardless of the availability of several types of lifting equipment, the nurse’s role will generally include manually lifting or assisting in movement of patients as a major portion of regular healthcare activities. As a result of the demanding tasks of the job, many nurses often experience low back pain and other symptoms.

Also read Michael Elling comment and look back at my previous post which basically said that customers do not want same-day delivery.


That being said, there may be other good reasons why Google would like to enter same-day delivery: google self-driving cars. Google has a unique technology that can totally disrupt same-day deliveries by putting self-driving delivery vans on the streets. With those the economic model of same-day may become profitable. Moreover, Google may want to partner with local delivery firms, providing them with the infrastructure - Internet service plus self-driving tech - and let them go their way. They remain, after all, an engineering company.

A Brief History of Human Coronaviruses

A Brief History of Human Coronaviruses | StarPow-R  Let’s CELEBRATE our local heroes | Scoop.it

On January 9 of this year, Chinese state media reported that a team of researchers led by Xu Jianguo had identified the pathogen behind a mysterious outbreak of pneumonia in Wuhan as a novel coronavirus. Although the virus was soon after named 2019-nCoV, and then renamed SARS-CoV-2, it remains commonly known simply as the coronavirus. While that moniker has been catapulted into the stratosphere of public attention, it’s somewhat misleading: Not only is it one of many coronaviruses out there, but you’ve almost certainly been infected with members of the family long before SARS-CoV-2’s emergence in late 2019. 

 

Coronaviruses take their name from the distinctive spikes with rounded tips that decorate their surface, which reminded virologists of the appearance of the sun’s atmosphere, known as its corona. Various coronaviruses infect numerous species, but the first human coronaviruses weren’t discovered until the mid-1960s. “That was sort of the golden days, if you will, of virology, because at that time the technology became available to grow viruses in the laboratory, and to study viruses in the laboratory,” says University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center pediatrician Jeffrey Kahn, who studies respiratory viruses. But the two coronaviruses that were identified at the time, OC43 and 229E, didn’t elicit much research interest, says Kahn, who wrote a review on coronaviruses a few years after the SARS outbreak of 2003. “I don't believe there was a big effort to make vaccines against these because these were thought to be more of a nuisance than anything else.” 

 

The viruses cause typical cold symptoms such as a sore throat, cough, and stuffy nose, and they seemed to be very common; one early study estimated that 3 percent of respiratory illnesses in a children’s home in Georgia over seven years in the 1960s had been caused by OC43, and a 1986 study of children and adults in northern Italy found that it was rare to come across a subject who did not have antibodies to that virus (an indicator of past infection)......
