Some residents also made YouTube tutorials to share recipes and dance moves. Adverts – on television, taxis, escalator panels and cinema screens – supported the campaign. WaterAid worked with other agencies to bring Untapped to life. WaterAid teamed up with PR agency Tin Man to stage a striking memorial by the River Thames, with 800 multi-coloured buckets providing a stark reminder that 800 children’s lives are lost every day because of dirty water. WaterAid Ambassadors, including Nadiya Hussain and Rachel Stevens urged the public to ‘buy a bucket’ and help save lives.The charity also worked with KRPT to bring the faces and voices of Tombohuaun to life via 3D tree-projections on London’s Southbank while grime artists and spoken word poets performed freestyles on the spot.”The appeal also included 3D tree-projections on London’s Southbank while grime artists and spoken word poets performed freestyles.Overall, the campaign’s activities and digital experience attracted a combined 430 million views. This was the inaugural outing for the Campaigns for Good Awards, which see three publications: PRWeek, Campaign, and Third Sector join together to recognise creative campaigns for good causes.  There were 15 awards, including 13 spilt between Brand Led, Public Sector, Charity or NGO and Multi-Organisation categories, as well as overall Agency of the Year and Campaign of the Year awards. Campaign of the Year was won by Small Talk Saves Lives, by Pegasus for Network Rail, Samaritans, British Transport Police & Rail Delivery Group.Marcus Missen, WaterAid’s Director of Communications & Fundraising, said:   “Untapped was a real team effort, with staff from across our organisation working together, along with GOOD Agency, to create one of our most ambitious and innovative campaigns yet. Through new technology and the power of storytelling, Untapped has connected communities thousands of miles apart, raising awareness of our work as well as an astonishing sum of money. The campaign’s greatest achievement has been providing clean water and fresh hope to Tombohuaun.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Is Mitro Going to Leave Fulham in January?

first_imgAleksandar Mitrovic has become one of the fans’ favourites after showcasing his goal-scoring skills, as well as an unsatisfied hunger for playing football with all of his heart. In a way, the Serb has become the embodiment of what English fans love to see in football — the ability to fight ferociously for the ball every second of the game.With all his skills and flaws, Mitro’s career has been going upwards — slowly but steadily. Fulham has been his home for some time now, but it seems that could change soon. Some speculate that it could happen as early as January 2020, during the mid-season window.Who Wants Mitro?It’s Aston Villa. The team is currently experiencing a serious problem, lacking an adequate attacker in their lines. Wesley was good last season, but this time his heart doesn’t seem to be in it, as he had scored only four goals so far this season. On the other hand, Wesley’s replacements Jonathan Kodjia and Keinan Davis are both suffering from injuries and are currently unable to play for the Villans. All of that resulted in an awful performance by the club that is currently in 15th place in the Premier League, and they need to open up their wallets and go for the best possible solution, and Mitrovic seems to be one of them.What Are the Odds of Mitro Leaving?It’s very hard to say at this moment, as nobody actually made an official statement about this. It’s all at the level of gossip right now. Sportsbooks don’t have an option to allow betting on whether a player would leave a club or stay during the transfer period, and that’s something they should definitely consider introducing. Nevertheless, many sportsbooks that include football in their offer are improving their betting markets, and some of them even introduce additional activities for punters, including casinos, such as this Sportsbet.io new casino site.Aleksandar Mitrovic — Stats, Achievements, BioSince the beginning of the 19/20 season, Mitrovic has been playing very well. It seems that Fulham has been utilising his potential successfully, putting forward his striking ability. So far Mitrovic appeared in 19 games and scored 15 goals. What’s even more impressive is his performance with the Serbian national team where he managed to score eight goals in five games.All of this makes Mitro a very interesting player who could fit in the lines of Aston Villa. However, the management of Fulham also needs to approve this if Villa decides to make an offer. It’s very difficult to say whether they would accept it, as they seem pretty content with having Mitro on their team as well.The 25-year-old Serbian striker has had a pretty interesting career. Born in Smederevo, Serbia, he became interested in football as a very young player and immediately started playing for Partizan, spending one season in the Serbian SuperLiga. He was then sold to Anderlecht for €5 million where he had a solid performance, having scored 44 goals in 90 games. He spent two seasons in the Belgian Pro League and managed to win it with his club, becoming a top-scorer in the league in his second year at the club.After that, he was noticed by Newcastle United that purchased the young striker for £13 million. Although Mitrovic enjoyed moderate success in the club, his real Premier League story began when he was on loan to Fulham where he helped the club come back to the top-tier English competition, making supporters of the Cottagers immediately fall in love with him.

We would like to thank Fifa for taking this decision to host the first World Cup on African soil.”The president thanked South Africans for the warm welcome they’ve extended to the thousands of overseas visitors, and encouraged them to keep it up for the duration of the tournament.“Africa is showing the world that it is capable of handling any matter of the world, like all other regions,” said Zuma.Musical feastInternational stars Black Eyed Peas thrilled the crowd, with frontman will.i.am shouting “South Africa, South Africa, are you ready?”, and then the concert swung into top gear.The Peas performed several of their popular hits, including “Where Is the Love,” “Pump It,” “Meet Me Halfway,” “Boom Boom Pow,” and “I Gotta Feeling”.With the brightly-clothed Soweto Gospel Choir singing backing vocals, John Legend and Beninese star Angelique Kidjo performed a cover version of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up”, featured on Listen Up, the official World Cup album. The energetic Kidjo returned to the stage a short while later to duet with local legend Vusi Mahlasela, who stirred the crowd with his deft vocals and delicate guitar work.International superstar Alicia Keys scored a huge cheer from the crowd when she appeared on stage. Keyes entertained with some of her hits, including “No One,” before teaming up with local outfit BLK JKS for a cover of the late Brenda Fassie’s “Too Late for Mama”.An ebullient Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu praised former president Nelson Mandela for his invaluable contribution to nation-building, and for throwing his support behind the World Cup in Africa. Wearing bright yellow Bafana Bafana gear, the Nobel Peace laureate was in high spirits as he personally welcomed the thousands of visitors to South Africa.Then it was the turn of Colombian singer Shakira to perform the catchy official World Cup song “Waka Waka” with Cape Town-based Afropop group Freshlyground. Their collaboration is also featured on Listen Up.The concert featured other top-notch acts such as the blind husband and wife duo Amadou and Mariam from Mali, Tuareg group Tinariwen, also from Mali, rocker Juanes from Colombia, local favourites the Parlotones and BLK JKS, Somali-Canadian rapper K’Naan, and another Malian act, the guitar wizard Vieux Farka Toure. Africa’s talent was undoubtedly the highlight of the evening.Amadou and Mariam’s hit “Celebrate the Day” was the official anthem for the previous World Cup, held in 2006 in Germany.The event closed with “Everyday People”, the 1968 hit by Sly and the Family Stone, turned into the anthem for the night.Football historyThe vibrant music was interspersed with video footage showing past football greats and past World Cup champions, and work done for the official 2010 Fifa charity 20 Centres for 2010. Fifa has stated that all net proceeds from the concert will be donated to the cause.Appearances by contemporary football heroes, such as former Bafana Bafana and Leeds United captain Lucas Radebe and former Brazilian midfielder Sócrates, added weight to the occasion.Production was slick and seamless, and the light show on stage was impressive, with very few noticeable glitches.last_img read more

Eighteen Streaming Music Resources

first_img5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 4. Tunerec: Swedish company Tunerec allows users to create music libraries and playlists from recorded radio play. Because libraries are taken from recorded music, it takes a while to populate playlists; however, according to RWW’s initial review by Frederic Lardinois, the service is worth the wait. 5. Last.FM: If you haven’t heard of Last.FM, you’ve probably been living under a rock. The site offers users the ability to create radio stations and stream them complete with AudioScrobbler-powered recommendations. 6. Pandora: To the user, Pandora and Last.FM are similar recommendation-based radio services; however, where AudioScrobbler makes statistical inferences, Pandora’s recommendations are determined by the Music Genome Project’s 400 distinct musical characteristics.7. Slacker: Slacker is another popular radio recommendation service. Users input tracks and receive recommendations. Slacker first launched with custom mobile hardware and has since expanded onto other mobile devices.8. The Hype Machine: This is a fantastic service for those willing to leave music selection to the experts. Like other sites, this one allows listeners to search for music and stream playlists; however, the files on the site are actually streamed from the blogs of top labels, DJs, promoters and music start ups. 9. Blip.fm: Blip.fm is another site where music lovers can access millions of streaming songs. Members receive their own station and the ability to share station programming responsibilities with friends. The site also offers integration with blogs, Twitter, FriendFeed and Last.fm. The act of blipping refers to the act of linking to a song and attaching a 150 character comment to it. 10. MOG: MOG is a music blog network that encompasses more than 300 blog posts per week. The site offers an in-depth look at new artists and includes music recommendations, videos and streaming audio clips. A good place to start with this service is to play audio from it’s Recently Popular Posts page. 11. Lala: Lala also offers users a playable web browser interface. The service contains 7 million free online songs and the ability to purchase additional web songs at 10 cents each or downloadable MP3’s for 80 cents and up each.12. Imeem: Imeem is considered “the new social mixtape”. The streaming music site allows users to create playlists and share them across the web. RWW recently covered Imeem’s iPhone and Android launch. 13. SoundCloud: SoundCloud also allows users to upload tracks and share them via the cloud. Listeners receive shared files via an email-style interface. From there, they can choose to either play the music from the site or download the tracks they’ve received from friends. 14. 8Tracks: This service lets users upload 8 tracks as a playlist and share the playlist with friends. This service is essentially what Muxtape used to be. 15. Muxtape: Muxtape has transformed from one of the early mixtape-style music sites (users uploaded and shared playlists) to a directory of bands. It remains a great place to discover indie bands.16. Project Playlist: Project Playlist indexes music from across the web. Again, users create playlists and share links to music files with their friends. Reviewers see this as one of the best music search engines in existence. 17. Skreemr: Skreemr is also a search engine and music indexing site. It claims to offer users access to “6 million mp3 files from over 100,000 web sites”. 18. Fizy: Similar to the now defunct Seeqpod, Fizy is an extremely bare bones approach to streaming music with a simple search bar. Like Seeqpod, the site offers speedy music video results and audio results, and unfortunately, legally questionable content. Perhaps the site’s recent acquisition will change that.On the Horizon: Microsoft is set to launch a streaming music site at the end of July.

Meanwhile, file-sharing has decreased significantly since the Digital Britain Report consultation to address illicit P2P file sharing. While music sharing sites have come and gone due to funding, legal issues and lack of users, here are some of the streaming sites that continue to thrive.1. Grooveshark: Gainesville-based Grooveshark is best known as a site where both rights owners and uploaders were originally compensated for sharing. The online community offers WordPress integration, widgets and music sharing via Facebook.2. Deezer: Deezer offers users free and legal streaming music while sharing advertising revenue with artists and rights owners. The site launched with a Sony BMG partnership and signed a Universal Music deal in 2008. Users can share their favorite music by connecting with friends within the social network, or embedding playlists in 3rd party sites. 3. Spotify: Heralded as one of the best music streaming experiences on the market, Spotify is only available in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Spain, France and Finland. TechDigest TV uploaded a fantastic looking preview of Spotify’s much anticipated iPhone app. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe Applast_img read more

How to Animate via Audio Frequencies in Adobe After Effects

first_img“Without music, life would be a mistake” ―Friedrich Nietzsche. Without music, animation and motion graphics would also be a mistake.This is why Davey.Studio created the FreqReact script for Adobe After Effects. This helpful little tool allows you to harness specific sound frequencies and use them to animate properties of a graphic element.This might remind you of a tutorial I created several months ago that was all about how to use audio to drive animations via keyframes, pickwhips, and the graph editor. While this method is certainly useful, it’s not as streamlined and intuitive as using the FreqReact script. Let’s take a step-by-step look at how to use this tool in a real-world animation scenario.In this particular tutorial, I’m going to animate a rocket flying through space. I’ll use the bass of a PremiumBeat track to control the flames of the rocket, as well as the star-field in the background.Step 1 — Create a New ProfileFirst, I’ll need to create a new profile. With the music track selected in the timeline, I’ll click on the New Profile button in the FreqReact panel, and I’ll name it Bass. I can choose to apply the profile to the entire comp or a specific work area.Step 2 — Select the FrequencyNow for the fancy part. FreqReact will generate a new comp, allowing me to view the spectral frequency of my music track. I’ll use the preset views in the FreqReact panel to isolate the desired range of the frequency, or I can manually type in a range. Now, I’ll use the bounding box in the comp panel to highlight the bass area I’d like to use to drive my animations. Once selected, I’ll press the Bake button.Step 3 — BakeBaking adds all of the necessary keyframes to my audio track. The beauty here is that I can add multiple profiles to one single music track, as each one will show up as a separate effect. Now, I’m ready to apply these as animations.Step 4 — ReactTo animate, I’ll need to select a property. First, I want the flame of my rocket to shoot out during the bass hits. To apply, I’ll select the Scale attribute of the Flame layer. Next, I’ll grab the Bass profile in the FreqReact panel, then grab the Pulse controller. Now, I can apply the effect via the React button. For the stars in the background, I’ll grab the necessary attribute and follow the same steps as above.Step 5 — CustomizeAfter pressing the React button, a new Pulse effect applies to the layers, allowing me to customize the intensity of the pulse via the Effect Controls panel. For the star-field, I’ll open up the Mods section of the effect and select Additive. This’ll make the stars move across the screen instead of simply moving back and forth.Voilà! A quick and easy animation with just a few simple clicks. To pick up a copy of FreqReact, head over to Davey.Studio’s website.Looking for more on Adobe After Effects?

Gov’t Focused on Quality Health Care Delivery – Minister Ferguson

first_imgCouncillor Suzette Brown (2nd left) from the St. James Parish Council leads a group discussion at Sunday’s (June 23) public consultation on financing for the health sector, held at the Montego Bay Civic Centre, St. James. Councillors Homer Davis (3rd left); and Charles Sinclair (4th left); also participated in the session organised by the Ministry of Health. Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, says that the Government is committed to maintaining high standards in healthcare delivery even as it deliberates on options for financing the sector.“It is not just creation of access; we have to also maintain quality and standards,” Dr. Ferguson stated on Sunday, June 23, as he addressed the fourth public consultation on health financing held at the Montego Bay Civic Centre in Sam Sharpe Square, St. James.Dr. Ferguson, who will speak on developments in the health sector, when he makes his Sectoral presentation on Tuesday, June 25, said that some “important recommendations” have come from the meetings held to date.“We have taken on board the many suggestions, some of which will be discussed, in our deliberations,” he informed.Among the recommendations, he said, is that the Ministry should look to “get something from the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), because in a real way, when our tourists come to the country, there is great expectations about the nature of our service, there is great expectations about or emergency response.” Stating that the issue of health financing has moved from just user fees, Dr. Ferguson informed that the role of insurance companies has also been put on the table.“When you have an accident and the client ends up in the hospital, what about the insurance companies? Those things have come to the table,” he stated.The Minister said the consultations have put him in a position to work with his team at the Ministry, and the wider Government to chart a way forward with clear understanding that the public is fully aware of the range of issues involved.Meanwhile, Technical Director at the Western Regional Health Authority (WRHA), Dr. Simone Spence, reported that a number of upgrading projects have taken place across the region to improve health facilities.“In progress, we currently have refurbishing of the dietary and kitchen area at Cornwall Regional Hospital, which is 99.9 per cent complete. Expansion of the Mount Salem Health Centre is almost complete as well. We have renovated a number of our health centres across the region, and there is construction of maternity, medical, and accident and emergency facilities at Savanna-la-Mar Hospital,” she outlined.Contact: Garfield Anguslast_img read more
