Whether accompanied by organ, handbells or electric guitar, or not accompanied by an instrument at all, Christians have used songs and music to worship God throughout history. Let’s take a look at musical instruments in the Bible, the history of music and worship and how different denominations of Christianity use music today.
xkcd published a flowchart to determine what kind of chart or graph you prefer. Me? I like them all, but this definitely helps. Somewhat.
From NBC Philadelphia:
At least, that’s the advice coming out of Little Baby’s Ice Cream in Northern Liberties.
Instinct tells us to do the opposite and center our weight mid-stride, which works on dry walkways.
However this tactic forces legs to split your body weight in half and rely on both feet to maintain balance — not the best idea for icy streets.
The local ice cream parlor posted a simple infographic on their blog to remind everyone to think of gravity and mimic penguins. Shifting one’s weight onto the front leg keeps people – and penguins – from slipping.
The process begins with members and record companies submitting entries, which are then screened for eligibility and category placement. The Academy’s voting members, all involved in the creative and technical processes of recording, then participate in (1) the nominating process that determines the five finalists in each category; and (2) the final voting process which determines the GRAMMY winners.
The Road To GRAMMY GoldRecording Academy members and record companies enter recordings and music videos released during the eligibility year which they consider worthy of recognition in the GRAMMY Awards process.
Reviewing sessions by more than 150 experts in various fields are held to ensure that entered recordings meet specific qualifications and have been placed in appropriate fields such as Rock, R&B, Jazz, Country, Gospel, New Age, Rap, Classical and Latin, among others. The purpose of screenings is not to make artistic or technical judgments about the recordings, but rather to make sure that each entry is eligible and placed in its proper category.
First-round ballots are sent to voting members in good dues standing. To help ensure the quality of the voting, members are directed to vote only in their areas of expertise; they may vote in up to 20 categories in the genre fields plus the four categories of the General Field (Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best New Artist.) Ballots are tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Deloitte.
Special Nominating Committees
In craft and other specialized categories, final nominations are determined by national nomination review committees comprised of voting members from all of The Academy’s Chapter cities.
Final-round ballots are sent to voting members in good dues standing. The finalists determined by the special nominating committees are also included in this ballot. In this final round, Recording Academy members may vote in up to 20 categories in the genre fields plus the four categories of the General Field (Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best New Artist.) Ballots again are tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Deloitte.
Results of members’ voting are not known until the GRAMMY Awards presentation ceremony when names of the winners are delivered by Deloitte in sealed envelopes. GRAMMY Award winners are revealed during the GRAMMY Awards telecast.
Posting to one or two social platforms for your business can be tricky. When you’re attempting to have a presence on nine or more, however, it becomes exceedingly difficult and time-consuming. How can you possibly keep track of what you should be posting and when you should be posting it on each of your social media profiles?
Unfortunately, this is a situation where one size does not fit all; you can’t simply create one post, copy and paste it to all of your profiles, and hope for the best. YouTube and Vine need video, Twitter has a limit of 140 characters, and Pinterest is heavily image-based. To increase engagement, likes, and shares, each post you create needs to be tailored to the specific social platform you are posting on.
But wipe off that sweat that’s started to drip down your forehead – handling your social media profiles just became a great deal easier.
Business 2 Community created an infographic full of tips on what to post and when to post on nine important social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Vine, and Tumblr.
Have you ever wondered how your favorite books were written? The writers must have spent endless hours conceptualizing the characters and events that leave you sleepless on rainy nights.
Everybody loves reading books (or watching the movies based on them), but we rarely dig deeper into the work of the writers we admire. What is the first scene that comes to your mind when you imagine a contemporary author working on their novels? A powerful laptop and a peaceful coffee shop, perhaps? Wrong!
You would be surprised that most writers don’t appreciate high-tech devices as much as we do. Some of their writing methods are traditional, whereas others are a proof that a person with such extraordinary imagination cannot work in a usual way.
When you think of it this way, maybe we should all reach out to a piece of paper and a pen from times to times? You wouldn’t mind doing that if your pen was as cool as Neil Gaiman’s exceptional writing gadget. And if you have an old typewriter lying around somewhere in your home, do not get rid of it by any means! Someone could still use it.
From Mark Twain to everyone’s favorite George R.R. Martin, here is what some of the most famous writers used to produce their works!
Global web traffic has increased sharply over the past few years. However, the majority of today’s website traffic is not actually human traffic. According to Incapsula’s Global Bot Traffic Report, 56% of website traffic can be traced back to bots that automatically browse websites for different purposes. Roughly half of all automated traffic comes from good bots, e.g. search engine crawlers that index a website’s content. The other half of automated traffic is malicious though, caused by impersonators, content scrapers or other hacking tools that are used to steal data, spam websites or simply bring them down.
