Personal Radio and Mobile Phone Combined

Sony Ericsson have announced the R300 low budget mobile phone that puts all the attention on its AM/FM radio player. To keep the mobile phone low budget it has basic features such as a 0.3 mega pixel VGA camera, Bluetooth and WAP browser. The mobile phone comes equip with a wired stereo headset that also acts as the radios antenna, as well as featuring a loud speaker on the back fascia of the phone. A neat little addition is the 3 small buttons next to the camera lens on the back of the phone, which allow you to pre programme your favourite radio stations so that you can flick between them easily whilst on the move.

A plus point to the R300 is that it is very light weight, weighing in at just 75 grams. It has 16 days standby time and 9 hours maximum talk time.

The R300 will be available in steel black and antique copper colour schemes, and should be in the shops during quarter two this year.

Sony Ericsson has also announced the R306 radio mobile phone. It looks a lot more stylish than the standard candy bar R300. The R306 is a flip phone that features dedicated radio station buttons on the front fascia, along with an up and down tuner button. There is also a display screen to tell you what station you are on and the built in Sony Ericsson TrackID technology will identify the music that you are listening too.

Again the R306 is a low budget mobile phone, it comes with a 1.3 mega pixel camera which is slightly better than the R300’s, and it also features Bluetooth, WAP browser, and speakerphone. As with the R300 stereo wired headphones are supplied with the standard phone package. It weighs in at 93 grams which again is a pretty lightweight phone.

Both phones come with a handy little device that allows you to record your favourite station onto the 5MB of internal memory.

The R306 will be available in quarter three this year and will be released in coffee black and champagne white colour schemes.

The Reasons Women Love Good Romance Movies

Since the beginning of cinema, romance movies have been well loved – predominately by women. Today, when a new romantic comedy or drama hits theaters, it’s the perfect excuse for a ladies’ night gathering. Many men (and even a few women) have wondered what it is about this genre of film that draws women in. Here are 5 reasons women love romance movies.

Women Love Getting In Touch With Their Emotions

Women are emotional beings, and not only do they have no issue displaying their emotions but many do not mind having those emotions drawn out of them. Sometimes it just feels good to have a hearty laugh or let the tears flow while watching others go through the ebb and flow of finding love, falling in love and losing love.

Women Prefer to Watch Rather Than Read Romance

Okay, so this isn’t true for all women (but what statement is?). However, with the busyness that consumes the daily lives of most women, many prefer watching romance movies to reading romance novels. It’s less time consuming, equally entertaining -or more so for some- and equally emotion spurring.

Women Love Using Romance Movies to Hint At Men

Women love watching romance movies to throw hints at the men in their lives as to what he should or shouldn’t be doing in their relationship. Some women will watch the movies alone while making notes or with their guy and having him take notes. Yes, a woman wants a man to chase her when she storms out after a fight, to serenade her from below her bedroom window and of course, to whisper sweet cinematic lines in her ear that give Tom Cruise’s classic “You complete me” some serious competition.

Women Relate to the Characters or Plot

Some romance movies are just plain sappy -and women may love those too- but some women love the more realistic films, the ones they can painfully relate to. Typically, stories of lost love and young love spark emotions in women and bring up old memories but women can appreciate the way the film made them feel and even relish in the memories.

Women Want to Be the Characters and Live the Plot

So, what’s the number one reason most women love romance movies? The Fantasy, of course! The happy ending is what every woman wants and few get to live in real life. It’s a nice escape from the reality of real life relationships for 90 minutes!

Animation and digital media

The applications of animation are growing by leaps and bounds. Animation has steadily conquered the digital media as well; many websites and advertisements are made in animation. Flash is a popular tool, which is used for creation of animation in digital media.

The online industry is growing at a breakneck speed and the requirement for web developers and animation artists is increasing. The best places to find new web developers and animation artists are the growing animation colleges in India. Digital media is on an expansion spree and the new animation artists find ready takers as soon as they pass out of the animation colleges.

Animation creation in digital media is referred as rich media advertisements. Digital media animation creations are eye popping and initiate enhanced user interface. Rich media advertisements or animation based websites have done a whole deal of good to the economy. It has given a boost to internet marketing. Google the industry leader in search engine and internet marketing has made optimum utilization of rich media advertisements in redefining internet marketing.

Internet marketing knowledge holders are aware about AdSense in Google AdWords. Publisher websites and content network websites are part of AdSense. Publisher websites are privately owned and managed popular websites that offer space for display of banner advertisements. The banner advertisements can be static as well as dynamic. Animation has redefined the concept of banner advertisements. Today they are much more than a static graphic with text. Motion is infused into animation and they are highly appealing.

Websites created on flash are equally appealing. The icing on the cake about becoming an animation artist specializing in digital media is that, he or she gets to learn about programming, coding and different types of languages like HTML, Java script and PHP.

Animation colleges in India are giving priority on teaching their students about different web development languages. Animation artists with knowledge of coding and programming will get more job opportunities compared to a general animation artist. He or she can work in design studios, production houses, web development and internet marketing companies.

All big corporate houses are taking a note of the wonders of rich media advertisements and are investing time, effort and resources in incorporating it as part of their marketing initiatives. Recent examples to elucidate the aforementioned statement are The Godredj Jiyo marketing initiative and the Indian Premier League promotional campaigns. Indian Premier League had signed with Youtube during the 2010 edition of the cricket competition, for telecasting it in internet. Many rich media advertisements were created in order to draw viewers to Youtube and the entire initiative was a big hit.

Actor and Singer David Hasselhoff To Feature On Tennis Channels Original Series Celebrity Tennis

Actor and singer David Hasselhoff will feature on Tennis Channel’s original series ‘Celebrity Tennis’ on Sunday, March 6 at 7:00 PM ET. -The Hoff- joins a list of previous Celebrity Tennis profiles that includes Dr. Phil McGraw, Christie Brinkley, Gus Hanson and Brandy.

Celebrity Tennis on Tennis Channel will broadcast multiple times in the following week. In each episode of Celebrity Tennis, former tennis professional and actor Vince Van Patten takes viewers inside the life of a different celebrity who has a burning passion for the sport. The host interviews these men and women about their love of the game and allows them to demonstrate their skills on the court.

During his spirited and jovial visit with the world-renowned former star of TV’s Baywatch and Knight Rider, Van Patten tours Hasselhoff’s San Fernando Valley home, where they come upon such unusual keepsakes as a 750-pound cork replica of -The Hoff- that was created for use in a feature film.

There are also more traditional, tennis-themed memorabilia, like a racquet signed by Andre Agassi. Van Patten and Hasselhoff then hit the courts to volley, work on serves and practice trick shots with the assistance of two ball girls – who are appropriately clad in Baywatch-s signature red swimsuits.

Hasselhoff tells Van Patten that he started playing tennis with his dad as a small child and has remained a fervent fan and player throughout his life, although he describes his on-court style as that of a -Swatter- like Dr. Seuss on the court.-

While Hasselhoff can be found courtside at numerous Grand Slam tourneys, he suggests that the sport could afford to be more entertaining for its viewers. If ever named commissioner of tennis for a day, he would pattern the events after WWE wrestling by making the games shorter and allowing the fans in the stands to be more vocal.

Near the end of their time together, the Celebrity Tennis host and television star play a quick, amusing game of -Either/Or.- Hasselhoff admits that he prefers Roger Federer over Rafael Nadal in tennis’ current rivalry, Andre Agassi over Pete Sampras in its most recent rivalry and Jimmy Connors over Bjorn Borg in one of its most classic rivalries.

He also likes tennis more than ping pong, singing more than tennis and Knight Rider more than Baywatch.

Film, television actor and commentator of The World Poker Tour, Celebrity Tennis host Van Patten grew up in New York playing tennis in the shadow of the US Open and took up acting when the showbiz family moved to California. He became a professional tennis player in 1979 and spent eight years on the pro circuit.

Transcending Expectations

A supermodel is a person whose image gains international recognition through public exposure of youth, beauty and allure through fashion magazines and product representation. But what happens when the glamour fades? What happens when the model turns thirty? Or becomes pregnant? Or alters her body with so many surgeries and procedures make them unrecognizable? Every supermodel has an expiration date. Looks don’t hold on forever, and there is always someone younger and thinner to replace supermodels. A supermodel must be aggressive in self-marketing to transcend her image in order not to fade to obscurity.
Few have been successful in that regard than Cindy Crawford.

Cindy’s efforts to push past the glamour of modeling were nothing new. In the early 1990s supermodels hosted talk shows, authored their own gossip columns, and simply took the world by storm. Every detail of their lives were mined by fans thinking the adoption of their lifestyles might bring them closer to the ideal and youth and beauty the supermodels represented.
Cindy Crawford differs from the rest of her peers in the way she kept herself in the public’s mind. In 1989 Cindy starred in MTV’s House of Style, one of the earliest forerunners of today’s “reality show” genre. As one of the models that shared hosting duties, Cindy let camera crews in on a side the public didn’t know she had. She wasn’t Cindy Crawford the supermodel, she was a Cindy buying clothes at sears or wearing disguises so she could eat in a restaurant in peace. She was just Cindy. When she left the show in 1994, she took most of the audience with her. Without her charisma MTV began cutting the amount of ordered episodes. It fell from a weekly show to a yearly tribute until it’s cancellation in 2000.

Cindy is adept at finding creative ways to put her image to work in the financial world. In 2005 she made a controversial move in creating her own furniture line, “the Cindy Crawford Collection,” whose success spawned a second furniture line with industry giants Raymour & Flanigan. She even established a home goods business with J.C. Penney in 2009.

Today Cindy offers the secret of her enduring beauty with the creation of the Meaningful Beauty products with Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh (known in the health maintenance industry as the “Youth Guru).” In effect she has given the everyday woman the means to look and feel like a supermodel.

The life of a supermodel looks easy. Beautiful woman walk down the walkway in scanty clothing, strike a pose and walk away. But staying in the spotlight requires mastery of smiles and poses and the eternal vigilance of keeping the ideal — often unreachable — body. Even if the supermodel goes everything perfectly, she still has an expiration date. When that time comes, many supermodels fall through the cracks of the public eye and naught to be seen again. Supermodels have to think smarter and fight harder to prove they are more than the perfect image they represent. Of those, Cindy Crawford stands as an imaginative and creative example of

How to be a Successful Vocalist

Who is a Vocalist?

A Vocalist is a person who uses his or her voice to produce music. Often the singer is accompanied by musicians and instruments. While many people sing for pleasure, vocal skill is usually a combination of innate talent and professional training. People who fit the above requirements are referred to as vocalists. Vocalizing is a talent which seems to come easily for many individuals. For other individuals, this particular capability has to be practiced.

Tips to be a good vocalist:

Take Singing Classes:

It seems like an obvious thing to do, but looking at many people who think they can sing – when they actually don’t! An excellent Vocal coach will help you hit the right notes and make sure that you’re using your vocal chords properly.

Be patient:

Don’t give up! No matter how frustrating it is, many performers get disappointed very easily if they do not sound better straight away. Being a beginner is quite complicated for many of us – be patient and try to learn things slowly.

Get Experience:

Try to explore your singing talent in occasions like birthday parties, corporate events, wedding anniversaries etc. or join a local band. What matters most is that you get experience. It will not only help you to become a better vocalist, but also reduce emotional stress and/or possible embarrassment.

Vary your experience:

Practice singing as much as you can. Try groups, small ensembles, solo or personal coaching etc. The more you practice singing in a variety of singing activities, the more comfortable and confident you will feel about your voice.

Be a good observer:

You need to be a good listener before you want to be a singer. Try to observe Vocalists carefully; what makes them to be a good singer? How to control voice variations, how to make use of stage presence? You can even ask for their advice after the show.

Get others opinion:

Try to record your voice and send it to your friends, colleagues and relatives, and ask what they think of it. It is the best practice to keep track of your progress.

Find a few warm-up exercises for your vocal chords and then practice them whenever you have time.

www.SkillCountry.com is an ideal place to find good vocalists and also musicians, vocal coaches, instrumentalists, music bands and others with many unique talents and skills.
