Hell has No Fury as the Voting Power of 157 Million Women


SUN CITY AZ (IFS)  -- Sometime back in August 2018, Rachel Leah did an article on Jimmy Kimmel.  In that article, Ms. Leah asked Kimmel about several other television personalities, with one including Megyn Kelly.

At that time, Kimmel advanced the idea that Kelly would not last until the end of the year on NBC.  With Kelly burning the digital bridge to her show, she demonstrated that she has the "Balls" to double down on the wrong side of history time and time again.  Kelly is best known for her feats of "throwing gasoline on the fire" with President Obama's birth certificate along with Donald Trump and Alex Jones.

“I think Dr. Ford is running out of options,” Kelly said. “I think she needs to show up on Monday and offer her testimony if she wants to be heard because for better or for worse, she is not in charge of this. The Senate is in charge of this. That committee is in charge of this and their obligation is to provide advice and consent to the president on his judicial nominee so they get to decide what will inform that decision.

(CNN)The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault says the FBI should investigate the incident before senators hold a hearing on the allegations.
In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys argue that "a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions."

All of them them live and breathe their own style of music combined they are Monsieur Job. Toby, Stan, and Charlie spin records as DJs constantly for different pools and venues around the world.

Allow the awesomeness to make your toes wiggle...

What Makes A Hit? 60 Years Of #1 Songs ... When it comes to climbing the charts, research suggests that it pays to be different. From Brenda Lee to BeyoncĂ©, here’s how the top songs stood out from the crowd. For a multi-billion dollar industry, popular music gets a bad rap. Pop music is often derided as insipid and endlessly recycled, and critics of the Top 40 often suggest that the key to making a hit is to copy and paste an earlier success with nothing more than some superficial variation. But recent research suggests that the opposite may be true [more...click here] https://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/articles/projects/what-makes-a-hit/

How Musicians Make Money — Or Don’t at All — in 2018 The buzziest word in music this year is the one that used to be the most utterly boring.  Copyright — ownership of songs and albums as creative works — is a riotous knot of rules and processes in the music industry, with the players much more numerous and entangled than the ordinary fan might think. But between Congress mulling over the much-anticipated Music Modernization Act, plagiarism battles between major songwriters raging and Wall Street scrutinizing Spotify’s lack of profitability as a public company, it’s helpful to have at least a basic understanding of music’s U.S. financial system in order to ponder its future. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/how-musicians-make-money-or-dont-at-all-in-2018-706745/

How To Optimize Your Soundcloud Tracks If you want your tracks to be heard by the widest possible audience it’s important to make them easy to find on SoundCloud as well as the wider web. Read on for pro tips on how to get your tracks in front of the right people. Keep your track, album, and playlist titles clean. We’re not talking about censorship here. We’re talking about all those time you were told as a kid to tidy your room. The same principle applies. A tidy track title helps fans know exactly what they’re listening to. Avoid duplicating information that’s displayed elsewhere. There’s no need to add track numbers to your title when uploading an album. https://blog.soundcloud.com/2018/05/08/optimize-soundcloud-tracks/

6 Tips to Land on Playlists & Retain Placement More than ever before, indie artists are pushing the envelope to rise above the noise, navigating discovery in the DSP era. The 10s of millions of tracks accessible through Spotify, Apple Music and other platforms begs a key question: How do you compete for attention in such a crowded space? Suffice to say, playlisting has become the go-to answer. Spotify users now spend half their time listening to playlists they create themselves, are algorithmically generated, or are curated by tastemakers. A spot on a playlist with a large following can help boost a track beyond just organic growth. https://www.awal.com/blog/playlisting-tips 

How Radio Found New Life On The Internet And Changed Music Discovery Forever Forget established stations and music journalists; if you want to keep your finger on the pulse of music and the creative underground, online is the place to go. DJs and presenters on internet radio are often part of a network of local artists and music creative – many even are artists themselves – with access to new and interesting music, free from playlists and pluggers. Internet stations are global in one sense by existing the web, but they are very much rooted in their communities and cities, operating in a DIY space (often in make-shift studios in public spaces) depending on team-work and local know-how to function – giving listeners a genuine flavour of the place from which they transmit. https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/features/articles/how-internet-radio-is-creating-a-whole-new-online-world-of-music-discovery

Musicians, Here’s How To Use Your Data  The concept of “data” is often an abstract one for artists and musicians (and even labels). You know that you have data in the form of email addresses and perhaps access to insights from social media and your website. However, the applications of this data are not clear. https://medium.com/ghstrategic/musicians-heres-how-to-use-your-data-b50bd9ba834b

Music Scores A Gold Record on The Social Media Charts In a world where fame is fleeting, musicians have influence and staying power on social media. In an era when politicians are renowned for their use of Twitter, music is a primary driver of our interactions with social media. A new study from MusicWatch highlighted the contribution of music to engagement on social media platforms (1). In fact, 9 out of 10 regular social media users partake in some music- or artist-related activity on the most popular social applications. http://www.musicwatchinc.com/blog/music-scores-a-gold-record-on-the-social-media-charts/

Music Metadata: The Secret Ingredient To Getting Discovered in Music Libraries Getting discovered in music libraries is not a game of luck. Increasing your chances of being returned in search results comes down to defining relevant and descriptive music metadata for the songs you upload. Music libraries can be a great music licensing opportunity for independent musicians. That said, getting discovered in a sea of thousands of licensable tracks can feel near impossible — like the proverbial needle in a haystack. How can you stand out when there are so many other great songs and tracks vying for the attention of music supervisors? http://blog.discmakers.com/2018/08/music-metadata-getting-discovered-in-music-libraries/

Crowd-Sauce: How Memes Are Helping Rappers Reach Number One Memes aren’t a new phenomenon, In fact they’re older than the internet itself. The word was coined by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book ‘The Selfish Gene’ and was intended to be used to describe human behaviors that spread though society by imitation. Whilst the term now refers specifically to internet jokes that are spread rapidly (and usually organically), the general principle remains the same. The relationship of memes to popular music isn’t new either, you can look back to tracks like Baauer’s ‘Harlem Shake’ to see that. But what is new is memes driving not just a single song’s popularity, but also boosting the associated artist to stratospheric new heights.  https://www.clashmusic.com/features/crowd-sauce-how-memes-are-helping-rappers-reach-number-one

Instagram Ads: Your Easy 7-Step Tutorial Fun fact: Instagram ads are booming on the platform right now. Did you know that Instagram now has over 2 million advertisers? Yeah, you read right — TWO MILLION. No biggie. With so many advertisers already in situ, you’re probably wondering how you can create Instagram ads that stand out, and get your business noticed amongst the masses — since clearly, Instagram has truly become a place to do business. https://blog.iconosquare.com/instagram-ads/

12% and More 12% CitiGroup published an 88 page report on the status of the music industry. Regardless of whether it was the intention or not, the takeaway was that musicians receive just 12% of the industry’s revenue. This number was up from 7% back in 2000.While it’s a great sign this number is going up, the response to this number has been “shock” from the media and creative community. This % is NOT to be confused with an artist’s profit margin. This is a mistake I was guilty of making when I first read the articles about the report – I quickly began to scan other industries profit margins and learned restaurants operate on average at a 6% margin, hotels at 10% and alcohol at 20%. http://artofamanager.com/2018/08/12-2/

How Fragmentation Is Hurting The Music Industry's Developing Artists The music industry has been in a rut for years — a $7 billion rut, to be exact. After a $15 billion peak in 1999, the industry watched its revenue slide until it plateaued at $7 billion in 2010, where it hovered for years. In 2016, the music industry finally saw an increase, notching a $7.65 billion year. https://www.forbes.com/sites/brittanyhodak/2018/07/09/how-fragmentation-is-hurting-the-music-industrys-developing-artists#1fa4b9fc32d3

Trump's Abduction of Children and the Trade Wars


SHOW LOW AZ (IFS) -- Donald Trump attempted to give Rep. Maxine Waters "Holy Hell" for asking about the whereabouts of the children. With Harley-Davidson moving its operations back to Europe, President Trump lacks the opportunity to regain his push for businesses to come back home.

Trump can not win this war that he created.  He has started the fire and now wants to be the fireman and the hero at the same time.  Trump has bitten off more than he can chew and his recovery is in doubt.

It was predicted by Charles Krauthammer months before he passed away the Trumps downfall will be the Immigrants and the manufacturing sector.

The last house in Rosewood


ROSEWOOD — The house went on the market at the end of May — a three-story Victorian with stained-glass windows, surrounded by 35 acres. no sign in the yard.
A state plaque is out on the road to Cedar Key, where tourists stop to take pictures. And others drive by, shooting holes into the metal marker.
“We aren’t advertising it much locally,” says the owner, Fuji Scoggins. “We don’t want any trouble from the neighbors.”
When she and her husband moved there 40 years ago, they didn’t know about the history of the home, what the former owner did — or the town of 300 African Americans that a white mob torched into
