Battlefield Could Not Burning China

Do not miss understand my words please. Battlefield could not burning China, does not mean that China are going to at war. I just mean the game Battlefield 3. We all know that it is a great RPG game, however, Chinese could not enjoy it. What a tragedy.

As I know, Battlefield 3 has thousands of servers but only 9 servers in China. If Chinese player wants to enjoy the world corporatin, he have to use a VPN.

But, we do not know where to buy a good VPN service. You know, most of Chinese like me, do not have much dollars, so we need world vpn coupon to buy one. Unfortunately, we do not know where to find a available  world vpn promo code or world vpn promotional code. If you know some, please tell me, thanks.

Hip Hop and Education — Educating Through Music

“Hip hop is inherently political, the language is political. It uses language as a weapon — not a weapon to violate or not a weapon to offend, but a weapon that pushes the envelope that provokes people, makes people think.” – Todd Boyd, Professor University of Southern California’s School of Cinema-television

It’s true what they say about music — it is a universal language. Regardless of where people are from or what language they speak, music that has universal appeal can do more than entertain. It can bring people together, get people to think and some cases provide a soundtrack for change. Never has his become more present than in the music of hip hop that went from an expressive combination of lyrics and rhythm to a lifestyle and culture that has permeated popular society.

More than just a beat

As stated above the “hip hop” professor, Todd Boyd, hip hop is far more than just clever rhymes and banging beats. It has the potential to educate. Boyd is one of the many educators blazing the trail that of bringing hip hop to education purporting that as a learning tool, it’s very powerful. Take for example the organization H2ED (Hip Hop Education). Their formula of T.O.P.S.Y (teachers, organizations, parents, social workers and youth) seeks to involve the adults and leaders in the community to band together focus educating the youth using things that they can relate to.

This Is How They Do It

According to their mission, “H2Ed is to serve as a resource for educators and those committed to helping children succeed in school by using the power of hip-hop culture as a learning tool. This is achieved by compiling and maintaining a comprehensive list of educational resources, products and services available for educators. By providing important networking opportunities and by advocating on both the institutional and grassroots levels for educational reform.” (About H2ED, www.h2ed.net)

The common misunderstanding or misconception is that you walk into a classroom and there is a hip hop beat blaring while a teacher attempts to rhyme the key points of American history. While that my seem like a clever and entertaining idea for Hollywood films it’s a hackneyed attempt at best to incorporate what hip hop can teach. Consider the basic tenets of recording, producing and distributing an independently produced hip hop CD. Within this one projecct.

* Basic Business Training
* Project Follow Through
* Problem Solving
* Social skills necessary for meeting goals
* Team Building
* Marketing
* Sales
(The DJ Project, By Dave Kim, Bay Guardian, San Francisco)

Involving youth in a project of this nature is exactly the goal of initiatives like San Francisco’s DJ Project. Much like H2ED, the DJ project uses hip-hop culture to reach out to urban youths for which this music has become an integral part of their lives. It would seem that the old perception of this music being a bad influence and having no redeeming qualities has actually been changed and is now perceived as music that can actually create a sense of empowerment for many kids.

For the Colorado Hip Hop Coalition (CHHC) founded in 1979 they take this empowerment to another level by:

* Creating a cultural connection between hip hop Culture that and kids
* Giving youth a stronger voice in the creation of programs suited to their needs and interests
* Developing a community network of hip hop artists and entrepreneurs that work collectively to create community economic opportunity

The Future Is Bright

The next time you hear people bemoaning the negative influence of hip hop, think about these pioneers in education and how they have looked beyond the negativity and embraced the potential and common bond between hip hop, kids and education.

Aaron Carter is Back!

Copied from other site.
I saw Aaron Carter in concert for the first time in July of 2000. I was six years old, just out of kindergarten. He packed the arena with pre-teen girls, who had screams so high pitched I thought I might never hear again. Almost eleven years later, at age 17, I found myself standing in a crowd of twenty-something girls, with the same high-pitched screams, waiting to see Aaron Carter.

The “I Want Candy,” and “That’s How I Beat The Shaq” singer has stayed out the limelight for the past few years (except for a stint on Dancing With The Stars in 2009) working on some new tunes. I got to see an exclusive performance of his new music, and hear the dish about his time in the recording studio, his advice to Justin Bieber, and DWTS!

“Wow, there are a lot of pretty girls in this room!” Aaron gushed to the crowd as he walked on stage for one of his first live performances this year. With his radiant white smile and signature blond hair, he’s still the same Aaron Carter you had a poster of on your wall in second grade.

Aaron’s sound hasn’t changed either. He’s still keeping with the pop-dance vibe, and his moves are just as incredible as they’ve ever been. At one point during the intimate concert, he did a flip right in the middle of one of his songs (and I’m telling you…this stage was SMALL). The energy of his performance felt a little like another blond boy with undeniable star-power: Justin Bieber. “I would love to work with the Little Biebs,” Aaron joked, “All of the hard work he is putting in, I worry about that all the time, and I hope that he’s not being taken advantage of by the people around him.”

Up next is new music. Aaron’s been working hard in the studio mastering producing and songwriting, and by his performance, it felt obvious he’s really excited about the new stuff. There is no set release date yet, for the album, but he promises it will be coming soon and he will be definitely be playing more shows!

If he happens to be stopping in a city near you, I would definitely recommend going! Even if you aren’t familiar with his new stuff…he may just have some “Candy” in store!
