"Há três espécies de mentiras: mentiras, mentiras deslavadas e estatísticas."( Cansada de tanta mentira, abusos, e roubalheiras, e tbm de gente medíocre!)

The White House, Washington

Good afternoon,
Today, I was in Michigan. Yesterday, it was Colorado and Nevada. Before that, it was Iowa and Arizona. The day after I delivered my State of the Union Address to Congress, I took off to connect with ordinary Americans around the country, talk more about our Blueprint for an America Built to Last, and get some feedback.
That's why I'm writing you.
On Monday we're going to do something a little different. At 5:30 p.m. ET, I'll walk into the Roosevelt Room across the hall from the Oval Office, take a seat, and kick-off the first-ever completely virtual town hall from the White House.
All week, people have been voting on questions and submitting their own, and a few of them will join me for a live chat.
This is going to be an exciting way to talk about the steps that we need to take together at this make-or-break moment for the middle class.
We have to foster a new era for American manufacturing -- rewarding companies for keeping jobs here at home and eliminating tax breaks for those who ship jobs overseas. We have to invest in homegrown energy in the United States -- starting with an all-out, all-of-the-above energy strategy that's cleaner, cheaper, and full of new jobs. We have to build an economy that works for everyone -- where every hard working American gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and the rules are the same from top to bottom.
I'm ready to get started, but I know you have questions and ideas for ways to help. So let's hear them:

O sarcasmo e a demência

Um grupo de cientistas da Universidade da Califórnia divulgou hoje que a incapacidade de detectar sarcasmo e mentiras pode ser um dos primeiros sinais da deterioração cerebral, provocada por algumas doenças, que leva à demência. A descoberta pode ajudar no diagnóstico dessas pessoas mais cedo, segundo os pesquisadores, melhorando as possibilidades de tratamento.
Para o estudo, os cientistas trabalharam com 175 pessoas, mostrando vídeos de conversas – algumas sinceras e outras não – e avaliando se eles conseguiam perceber quais eram as afirmações sarcásticas.
Agora, os fãs de sitcoms com certeza pensaram neste exemplo de alguém que não sabe identificar sarcasmo em português aqui (infelizmente, não é possível embedar)

Sossega, coração! Não desesperes! Talvez um dia, para além dos dias, Encontres o que queres porque o queres. Então, livre de falsas nostalgias, Atingirás a perfeição de seres. (Fernando Pessoa)

Feature: Musicians Guide to Setting and Achieving Goals for 2012
By Ariel Hyatt
The last half of 2011 was intense for a lot of us.  The financial news across the world remained bleak, Occupy Wall Street was all over the news as the 99% spoke up to be heard.
The music business continued to take hits with Spotify’s arrival and news of more layoffs at record labels, management companies as we all scratched our heads to blog about positive things and good outcomes
Many of you may have seen this article (or another one) on setting goals as they crop up at this time of year.
It’s a new year and a clear slate is in front of all of us. The turning of the calendar from 2011 to 2012 is an ideal time to set your goals. I see a marked difference between artists who set finite goals and those who do not regardless of what is happening in the world and in the news.
Ask yourself: Is this the year I want to make a difference for my music career?  And if so – what difference and how?
Think of goal setting as if you were driving in a foreign place – You wouldn’t get where you expect to go without a clear set of directions. Goal setting is like drawing a map for yourself.
This article is designed to assist you in creating a personal roadmap for achieving what you would like with your musical career this year, whether you consider music your hobby and you do it part time or you are making a living out of it full-time.
I have included a few links from some of the best musician related posts on how to think about and achieve goals as well.  So, bookmark this long article and refer to it throughout the year!
On The Blogs: The Music Success in 9 Weeks Blog Challenge V3 is ON with 63 Canadian Artists Participating!  Come cheer them on!
