Lip Sync

In today's society, the use of lip syncing is becoming more common in the music industry. There were several controversies that enraged people and initiated debate whether they should or should not lip sync. These include Chris Brown at the 2012 Grammy's, Beyonce at the 2012 Presidential Inauguration , Jennifer Lopez when she performed with Pitbull at American Idol and the list goes on.

Personally I am for and against lip syncing. It varies depending on the situation. I have several reasons why I feel this way. For example, I would prefer seeing an artist dance moves rather than listening to their singing, if only they put on an amazing show. I would understand that when you sing and dance at the same time it may take away from the overall performance because the type of choreography they may be doing, they might feel out of breath and their voice may sound like they are gasping for air. If I don’t get a good performance as a result of lip syncing and dancing instead of wasting my money on a terrible show I would’ve rather listen to an audio CD at home.

I truly believe there's a difference between an entertainer and a singer and to me if people do not know the difference they would not really enjoy some of the concerts. There are many singers that can sing and dance really well. For example, the pop singer P!NK performs some really great acrobatic moves while singing live and sound totally amazing. Some performers that do not lip sync may do the same but it may not be as perfect as others but they manage to satisfy the majority of their fans and still give an awesome and honest performance. I guess it depends on how talented of an artist they are. I know I recognize the difference so my opinion is a lot broader than others. In some other cases, artist may use lip syncing due to certain technical difficulties instead of canceling the show or sometimes the artist is told to lip sync by the event producers because there is a greater cost attached to live singing as compared to lip syncing.

Artist like Adele who has really great vocals would truly disappoint me to know that she lip synced at a concert for which I spent hundreds of dollars to attend. I would feel really cheated because it is her vocals that made her so popular. Another popular vocalists is Christina Aguilera who to me has one of the best voices I think of all time, and having spent hundreds of dollars to see her sing, I would definitely expect to get value for my hard earned money.

On the other hand, it may be necessary to empathize with some of the entertainers who have to endure long hours of performing on tours and vocal training, which makes them so drained that they are unable to deliver the quality performance that their audience deserve and paid for. The same regard must also be advanced to the supporting staff, especially the members of the band who endure similar experiences and hardships as the vocalists.

To sum things up, lip syncing could be a good or bad thing. Things to keep in mind would be that the performers go thru a very demanding and high stress vocal training session, which can put a toll on their ability to perform at 100%. As oppose to the performers not taking in consideration that their fans deserve a genuine performance in which they spent money to get. So with that in mind, lip syncing depends on the ability of the performer to perform or the mental state of the performer to do what’s right.…...

Not Your Typical City

...The rusty entrance gate does not do what it is suppose to do, the tarnished steel and peeling white paint does anything but welcome you. ‘Bare City’ barely seen printed at the top of the gate, both vowels missing. What is this place? Some describe it as garbage, some call it home, I do not want to call it. As I step further through the gate I notice a large oak tree with names, hearts and curse words carved into it. I shake my head and purse my lips in disapproval. What is this place? Surely, it has to get better than this. It doesn’t. The dry, crisp un-watered grass is a deep-seated tainted brown color and the flowers are lifeless. I can tell that in earlier years Bare City was beautiful, what ruined it? A hurricane? A tornado? I can see now that it is a lack of interest and care. The smog and air are compressed with toxins, foul. I cannot breathe. What is this place? The trash cans pile over and the oasis of garbage decorates the bottom of the bins, the streets, the ‘houses’. I think momentarily how, by some misfortunate fate, I ended up at this dirty, despicable ‘City’. As I stand at the entrance I could see miles and miles of trailers a few yards away. They too have been rusted and what’s left of the paint barely maintains posture. How could someone live here and not be disgusted? I wince at the thought. But where were the shops, the businesses, the playground? Where were the people? Hesitant, I take a step further. I creep through the ghost town and find the main...

Some of the key decisions behind this campaign is the importance of the advertising marriage with Ford Sync, Juanes, and the ability to target the audience that likes to listen to their mp3 players in the car during their long commutes to and from work. The advertising specialists did a very good job of what it looks like hitting every marketing channel they could. SYNC Zones at Juanes concerts,, banner ads, video banners, paid search, widget clocks or temperature gauges, email blasts, magazine and newspaper ads, radio spots, talking billboards, text messaging, and social media blasts on Facebook and Twitter.

...if syncretism not occurred in the Americas the independent high level of freedom would not be the same as it is today (Sayre, 2010). One aspect that would have changed is the political syncretism. Had syncretism not occurred in the Americas, the United States government would not be a solid whole unit. Instead it would be divided up into sections, such as how it was when things were segregated there would be a different section would govern certain people of certain races. For example, in the nineteenth century Indian Americans along with African-Americans could not vote or get involved in political issues. The Americas would not be considered a free nation as it is today. Slavery would still exist, along with the mistreatment of minorities as common and fair behavior (Muraga, 2011). Cultural entertainment would have also been affected. The Americas have a known history of diverse entertainment styles. However, many of these styles have integrated in the American culture through other countries. If not for syncretism America would not have the diverse range of music and entertainment that is so broad and diverse today. The partial integration of religious practices would not be so free and impartial. The constitution allows the right for a person to serve or worship the god of their choice. Christianity has dominated many societies in the Americas. In South America the Spanish colonization and its Roman Catholic Church's proselytizing of animistic South......

Big Data, Nosql and Mobile Sync —Three Peas, One Pod

...Sponsored Content DBTA | MARCH 2012 27 Big Data, NoSQL and Mobile Sync —Three Peas, One Pod By James Phillips, Co-Founder and SVP of products, Couchbase A few months ago I had the good fortune to hear VMware CEO Paul Maritz speak at a conference. Asked “which trends would you identify that will have the biggest impact on IT in the coming decade?” Paul identified two: cloud computing, and the transition underway in at the data layer—specifically mentioning Big Data and NoSQL. Paul noted that, in his experience, a shift in the data model generates farreaching ripple effects: new applications are enabled, the application development process is impacted and the infrastructure atop which these applications run changes. He saw it happen with IMS (hierarchical data model) and with the relational model. In his estimate we’re on the leading edge of another fundamental shift. Clearly Paul is not alone. It is hard to find an IT “predictions” story or blog that doesn't mention Big Data and/or NoSQL. But these terms are frequently interchanged as though they are synonyms. In part, the confusion comes from focusing too sharply on the technology itself. There are certainly similarities in implementation—notably the tendency to spread data across many servers versus storing data on a small number of very large servers. But if one softens the focus on the technology, it becomes clear there are three distinct trends driving innovation at the data layer: data growth, web......

Regret and Loneliness in "What My Lips Have Kissed"

...Regret and Loneliness in “What Lips My Lips Have Kissed” In the poem “What Lips My Lips Have Kissed” by Edna St. Vincent Millay, there is a theme of loneliness and regret. The speaker is a woman looking back with melancholy reflection to the days of her youth when her life was full of hope and the promise of love. She remembers she once had lovers but she cannot recall them individually. Now she is alone left with only regret: for the unremembered faces of her past, for the passing of her youth, and for the loneliness of her life now. The speaker regrets her inability to remember “What lips [her] lips have kissed” (Line 1). No special man or moment comes to her mind. Her memories of her former glory days haunt her. Although she cannot recall any of her lovers in particular, she hears them as she listens to the rain; unclear faces in her mind like “ghosts…that tap and sigh / Upon the glass” (ll. 3-4). Her heart aches for the “unremembered lads” that had once shared her bed. (l.7). She regrets her youth is now behind her. She compares herself to the seasons with her youth as “summer” (l.13) which is warm and green. Now she is in the time of “winter” (l.9), stark, bleak, and dreary. Those days when she was young and carefree she thought would last forever; but looking back, they seemed to have lasted only “a little while”(14). The speaker is alone: “In winter stands the lonely tree” (l.9). She cannot remember “What loves have come and gone” (l.12).......

The presentation should be no more than 10 minutes. Please use visuals and a power point for your presentation. The Issue The Deepwater Horizon oil spill was an oil spill that began in April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico on the BP-operated Macondo Prospect, considered the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. It claimed 11 lives when the oil rig exploded and spilled 4.9 million barrels or 210 million US gal of oil for 87 days. It was finally capped on September 19, 2010. Numerous investigations explored the causes of the explosion and record-setting spill. Notably, the U.S. government's September 2011 report pointed to defective cement on the well, faulting mostly BP, but also rig operator Transocean and contractor Halliburton. Earlier in 2011, a White House commission likewise blamed BP and its partners for a series of cost-cutting decisions and an insufficient safety system, but also concluded that the spill resulted from "systemic" root causes and "absent significant reform in both industry practices and government policies, might well recur". In November 2012, BP......

...same time. Some variety shows such as Running Man requires more than 12 hours filming it. Therefore, all of them have a packed schedule every day and they are often sent to hospital due to lack of rest. A lot of practice is also needed to put on a perfect performance on stage especially for groups with a lot of members such as Super Junior and Girls’ Generation. Well, after all the good talks about K-Pop, I’m going to show you all another side of K-Pop. We’re currently having some negative issues in this music industry. First of all, lip-sync. Just in case you don’t know what it is, lip-sync is the way we perform singing by matching lip movements to sung vocals. Lip-sync has been a culture for a lot of K-Pop groups on stage performance. The reason they do so is to emphasise on the dance, which means they are not capable to make singing and dancing perfect at the same time. Some of them also did it to cover illness. In my opinion, lip-sync is an immoral behaviour. It is the same as cheating to fans. So, I’m strongly against this culture. Plagiarism and lack of originality is another serious issue in the Korean music market. There are some Korean artists being ambitious to make their music international. Therefore, some of them started with American hip-hop. In this case, an inspired music may become a plagiarised song. There are also some companies buying composed tracks instead of making one which is tailored for the artist. Besides, when certain style or theme is......

Cleft Lip and Palate

...Cleft Lip and Palate Critical Thinking Assignment #4 Oral Health 3/20/2015 Cleft Lip and Palate Cleft Lip and Palate are birth defects that effect an individuals oral cavity and face. A cleft lip affects the upper lip and can vary in degrees of severity, ranging from a notch to a complete opening extending into the nose. Aside from the lip the cleft palate affects the roof of the mouth, with a groove that may extend through the dental arch (Staff, 2015). These abnormalities may occur individually or together and although they have high incidence of occurring as an isolated birth defect they can also occur in the presence of other genetic birth defects (Staff, 2015). The cause of these malformations may be from exposure to teratogens in the early part of the first trimester or due to mutated genes (Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 2014). Teratogen's are agent that cause abnormalities in a developing fetus (Staff, 2015). The affect of this condition is not limited to causing visual disfigurment, but significant affects of speech development and feeding disturbances as well. Symptoms of this defect include the separation of the lip, palate, or both and various degrees of nasal distortion (Staff, 2015). The incidence of cleft lip and palate varies dependant upon racial factors. With approximately 1 out of 1,000 Caucasians affected (Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 2014). The overal incidence of cleft palate in itself is rather prominant,......

En opinión de Adam Smith, la estructura económica ideal es un sistema autorregulado de mercado que satisface de forma automática las necesidades económicas de la población. Él describió el mecanismo de mercado como una "mano invisible" que lleva todas las personas, en aras de sus propios intereses, para producir el mayor beneficio para la sociedad en su conjunto. Smith incorporó algunas de las ideas de los fisiócratas, incluyendo el laissez-faire, en sus propias teorías económicas, pero rechazó la idea de que la agricultura era lo único productivo. En su famosa analogía de la mano invisible, Smith defendió la idea aparentemente paradójica de que los mercados competitivos tienden a promover los intereses sociales, aunque paradójicamente sean impulsados por el interés particular. Este enfoque iniciado por Adam Smith fue llamado la economía política y posteriormente economía clásica. 2) La economía marxista (marxismo):la economía desciende de la economía clásica. economia marxistaSe deriva de la obra de Karl Marx.

Our Lips Are Sealed

...OUR LIPS ARE SEALED Every two minutes in the United States, “someone is raped, and the chances of being that victim are four times greater for a college female student than for any other age group. The phenomenon of date rape is not new, however it has evolved into a communication phenomenon, in which communication about sex and rape, the negotiation of consent, the rape itself, the aftermath of rape and the reaction to date rape, are central to defining a rape culture on campus. Women have been muted in a multitude of ways, including the methods in which women tell stories, through male-controlled media, in ways women’s bodies are portrayed and analyzed, and through censorship of women’s voices. Rape is a horrible experience, so why would women keep quiet about it. Campus cultures perpetuate the `culture of silence` that exists among young men and women by fostering a culture of rape which silences experiences and advocates victim blaming (self blame) that is set ablaze by the social acceptance of rape myths, experiences not being defined as rape, secondary rape, and the absence of deterrence, all of which create an underlying tolerance towards rape. In this paper I will examine how women are affected by the rape supportive culture that exists on campuses and creates an internalization of self blame are muted before, during, and after the experience of date rape. Both male and female students contribute to muting women, thus perpetuating a rape culture in which rape......
