Music Law. How to Run Your Band's Business by Attorney Rich Stem. When the first edition of this book debuted in 1998 few bands had websites and it took hours to download a song, assuming you could find a song to download. Two years later, thanks to the Internet, many people proclaimed that the 20th century music business, as personified by major labels, was officially dead. The new mission for bands was to bypass the middleman and sell direct or through downloads. We wondered whether the old rules about touring, promotion and releasing recordings were still valid. In 2004 we informally surveyed musicians and music industry honchos to find out what they thought. The results indicated that little had changed for working bands other than the emergence of banned websites is a vehicle for marketing and distribution. We asked people to list in descending order the factors that would help a band succeed in the 21st century. All but one identified. Songwriting is the most important factor for a band success. Strong musical skills and a compelling live performance were near the top of everyone's list. Physical appearance. In luck, we're near the bottom in other words, the old fashioned approach to success still pays off. Write great songs, play well and give the fans a great show. This is from Forks Over Knives by Dell Shrove. If you consume a typical Western diet, most likely you live in a country like the United States, a country with the most expensive health care in the world and some of the least healthy people. Sadly, as the cost of health care continue to rise in, the health of the population continues to decline. We face a growing economic and social crisis. This, however, is a crisis that need not grow anymore. Once we wake up to the problem, we can regain control of our own healthcare. Starting at our families breakfast table, we can make a significant dent in both our own and our societies healthcare expenses by paying attention to the foods that we eat. Any number of diseases cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and more can be not only prevented but in many cases reversed with the right diet. Ah, Whole foods plant based diet. By eating this way, you can cut down on increasingly expensive medical bills and insurance costs. As a bonus, you'll even likely slash your weekly grocery bills because the healthiest foods like beans, grains, fruits and vegetables also tend to be less expensive than the highly processed foods that are currently making us sick. The whole plant foods that featuring these recipes are readily available in most places. And while they haven't been spared the price increases that have affected all kinds of food in the last several years, they remain far more affordable than most red meat, poultry, dairy items and processed foods products in which consumers pay a premium for not only manufacturing and production, but for research and development, packaging and shipping.
