Understanding Gucci Mane a.k.a. Radric Davis

By Jennifer Roylor

Most people don't like to think of Gucci Mane as being a top notch artist from the place that they call Sun Valley, GA. His manager has helped him come to terms with releasing as much quality music as possible. It is very disheartening that he has been locked up behind bars for over 3 years. Gucci Mane accidentally forgot to conduct his service to the city (as sentenced by a circuit court) which got him right back in jail.

He also acted a little bit unfocused on his case because he skipped a probation meeting so that he could do a show. Even though he ended up right back behind bars, he is more focused than ever before with music. One of his close friends and co-workers called him in early January and asked if he was thinking about recording. His co-worker issued a statement saying that he is trying to come up with more music for another hit record.

It seems as though many decades have passed and he has improved his lyrics each year. A lot of individuals believe that he started out as a terrible musician because he didn't have lyrics that even made sense. At the present moment, most people understand that he has risen to fame because his lyrical talent is outstanding.

Some would argue that his rhyme skills are even better than Jay-Z. The newest project that he came out with titled "Radric vs. His State" was a success because it went gold. A lot of other individuals think that he would have sold a record amount if he was not in prison. It probably would have had a lot more sales if he would have been able to shoot more promotional music videos for some of his best songs.

Despite the obvious fact that he tries to create songs for his neighborhood, Gucci always attempts to make classic songs for the radio. He constantly strives to keep it real and create songs that nearly anyone will love. Gucci Mane has been able to come out with awesome CD's and his grind in the street tape game has been great. A specific tape that most people love is called "Trap Tacular" because he did it with the late DJ Scream.

One great trait that his street tapes carry is that they are able to generate heavy buzz. Are you a Gucci Mane fan? If you are, then you will want to follow the rumors about him getting an early release date from prison. He is set to come out with a brand new CD that will be put out sometime in late 2010. Take the time to get his new album, download the street tapes, and watch him keep improving his skills as a musician. - 30538

CD Troubleshooting Can Be Done By You

By Nell Harrison

Everyone enjoys listening to music while on drive. When CD player stops doing its job we take it to a repair shop. But before doing that we can try out few simple ways of car CD troubleshooting which may save us from paying huge amount for repair.

Troubleshooting involving diagnosis and then fixing it by finding the cause for the problem. First step involves focusing on a specific problematic area . Next step would be to check if the connections are proper and the last step is to troubleshoot. Let us look at each step in detail

The first step is to determine where the problem is. Check whether it is in the radio or music player and the like. This can be done immediately by playing the radio. If the radio works it shows that there is some technical fault with the player. The speakers must also be checked if both are playing properly or if any one of the speakers is not.

Another important things is to check proper connection of power cable to the speakers. Security is also a major concern. So always ensure that if power cable is connected only to positive terminal . It is also necessary to check if the CD player does not work properly because the fuse inside the glass is blown out . So always check the fuse box of the power cable. So by checking out these things our problem gets narrowed down.

Another possibility might be due to the damaged connections. To check this, the wires can be connected to electric meter which is available in shops. This electric meter gives a reading if there is power supply. Therefore if the wires are not connected properly or have disconnected somewhere it will show no reading. The wires can be obtained but removing the player after unscrewing the speakers.

The next thing one should do for checking for trouble shooting is checking the wiring connected to the backside of the CD player using a flashlight at the back side of the dash board. If all these wiring are safe and secure then disconnect the positive cable from the battery of the car. This will put the CD player back to the factory conditions resetting all its characteristics to the initial stage. This will solve the problem in trouble shooting but you need to tune back all your stations and reset your clock.

There also appears a problem of disc error. In this case clean the disc drive using a lens cleaning solution. A drop of rubbing alcohol can be used for effecting the cleaning power.

One need not head to the service as soon as he encounters a problem in car CD troubleshooting, these simple steps would be like a initial check for your car CD player. - 30538

Engineering Advancements in Canada

By Adriana Noton

Canadian engineers have had a long history of making astounding advancements in the field of engineering. There have been many engineering developments that have improved the quality of life of people around the world and have led to important discoveries. Listed below are just a few of the major engineering advancements in Canada.

The Electron Microscope: In April of 1938, two graduate students and their supervisor, Department Chairman, Professor E.F. Burton from the Physics Department of the University, built the first transmission magnetic electron microscope. Researchers were eventually able to see into inner space and learn important and valuable information about the universe. Research in mathematics has assisted in this as well.

The Pacemaker: At the Banting and Best Institute Laboratory in Toronto, Dr. John Hopps, an electrical engineer and National Research Council researcher, along with two physicians, Dr. William Bigelow and Dr. John Callaghan, developed the ability to cause the heart to beat, which included the ability to decrease the heart rate. They did this by applying an electrical pulse. What emerged from this remarkable development was the creation of the first pacemaker in 1950. In 1957, the first small pacemaker was implanted into a man from Sweden. The origins of this remarkable medical device came from brilliant Canadian engineers and physicians and have saved millions of lives all over the world.

FP-6000 Computer: One of the first computers that used an operating system and performed a variety of functions was developed in Canada. The FP-6000 computer was developed in 1961. When designers from Toronto's Ferranti-Packard Company assisted with moving computers from university laboratories into office buildings, it was the FP-6000 computer that was used.

The Ballard Fuel Cell: Another remarkable Canadian engineer development, the Ballard Fuel Cell, can use different types of fuels such as gasoline, hydrogen, natural gas, and methanol. Fuel cells have enough power to run a vehicle. The only by-products from the fuel cell's electrochemical reaction are water vapor and heat. As well, these cells run continuously as long as they have fuel.

The Canadarm: One of Canada's most renowned engineering accomplishments, the Canadarm, is able to capture a free-flying payload in an environment where there is no gravity. The Canadarm has never failed and has been used to help build the international space station, break ice off the fuselage of the Orbiter, and assist in the repair of the Hubble Space Telescope.

Compact Discs (CDs): Canadian engineers have made a significant contribution to the music industry. Canada makes the compact discs that are used by about 90% of all recorded North American music, video, and software.

The Alouette Satellite: In September 1962, the Canadian made Alouette Satellite was the first satellite launched into space making it the first launched satellite to be built by a country other than the USSR and the US.

Radio Broadcasting: On Christmas Eve, in 1906, Canadian, Reginald Fessenden, made an important historical achievement by making the world's first radio broadcast using his invention called the radio telephony.

The above engineering advancements are just a few of the many Canadian accomplishments in the field of engineering. For years, engineering developments have impacted the field of science, medicine, technology, and much more. The outlook looks promising for Canadian engineers and their future engineering achievements. - 30538

Erasing Small-Town Radio Station Limitation Problems Thanks to IMRadio

By Lilia Lukas

I live in a really small town, with very few choices in radio stations. Then I got myself searching on the Internet for online radio stations. There are a lot of options out there, but there is one that my friends and I really get excited about.

Our favorite IMRadio. We always make sure that it is played in the background whenever we hang out, do our homework, or getting ready to go out. The variety of music and the sheer talent sometimes makes us stop whatever we are doing, forget what we were talking about, and say, "This song is awesome! "

You can choose from many stations. If I remember it correctly the last time I checked, it was like 450 and I really like it. It is somewhat similar to YouTube for Music where music artists can upload their song files, just like anyone can upload their videos on YouTube.

Living in a small town used to mean that we were behind the times as far as new music. We can now listen to newest bands, freshest songs from artists all over the United States through IMRadio. The feeling of being bumpkins who never get to hear the hottest music in the country is no longer a problem.

Since my friends and I are fond of rock music, we are happier about IMRadio since most of the songs there are considered rock. Without IMRadio, we will never have the opportunity to hear this number of cool artists. But come to think of it, when you compare these songs to those songs you that you hear on traditional radio and Top 40 charts, they really sound better. So much better!

There is a few band that really impressed us and we are definitely positive that they have a long way to go. The web site has an awesome feature on where the fans can communicate with their favorite bands. Although, we do not have any intention of forming long-term friendships or stalk the bands or anything. But it is such a kick to send a message, just to let them know that we are out there and love what they are doing.

When you go to IMRadio's home page and scroll down a bit, you will see a "Featured Bands" header with images that look like little CD covers. One of my favorite things to do is click on a random image and then start listening to a song by that artist. If I do not like the song, I just move on until I find a song that suits my taste. It's kind of like hitting the "seek" button on your car radio to hear what's playing on another channel before you decide what to listen to, only the music is edgier. - 30538

IMRadio Introduces New Bands

By Katy Canto

I have dreamed of hearing my tunes on the radio since I was a little kid, pretending to play my toy guitar along with videos on MTV. But even if you're a real good and, getting air time can be pretty difficult.

The band that I formed five years ago has been lucky enough to be played on some local stations. Although luck is not the correct word. We have worked pretty hard to meet the right people who have been able to get us on the air. It was our bravest move.

New bands face an uphill climb because radio stations often do not put unknowns into their rotation. Usually those bands that you hear on the radio are not essentially the most talented. Often, they are the ones with the most financial backing and marketing efforts.

One of the most awesome resources I have found online is IMRadio. This web site says that it is by musicians, for musicians, and it really is. Some of our song files are now receiving free radio airplay in more than 100 countries when I registered an account and uploaded them into IMRadio's rotation.

As a music lover, I like being able to hear other new artists, and appreciate their talent. Aside from that, poets and comedians are heard on IMRadio. Then I recommended IMRadio to some of the acts that I usually see around town, particularly the clubs and it is nice to see a following build up for IMRadio.

Now that my band is being heard, we are able to begin growing a fan base, which is so exciting. IMRadio has a message forum, giving the bands and their fans a communication venue as well for the bands to communicate with other bands.

If you see yourself as a budding musician or has a band that has been around for quite a while, IMRadio can boost you up and your band's spirit and talent. You will not feel any bit of difficulty in joining, uploading your song files, have your music into rotation, and be heard.

And if you are a music lover, be sure to stop by IMRadio and join. The talented groups will really amaze you. - 30538

Model Radio Controlled Sports Cars

By Owen Jones

Do your interests in model remote control cars lie in high speed, rapid acceleration and magnificence of form? If this is exactly what you are looking for in a model vehicle, then a model sports car is almost certainly what you are looking for. Authentic size sports cars are a $4.5 billion industry with about 55,000 units being sold every year.

Sports cars and their model counterparts are manufactured as high performance machines, which means that they can be driven in ways that normal assembly line cars can not. For example, in the case of a real sports car, it frequently takes no more than five seconds to go from 0 to 100 mph. Likewise in a model high performance gas replica, it often takes no more than two seconds to reach 60 mph from a dead start.

Because it is more tricky to maneuver a speeding vehicle, sports cars and model sports cars are especially designed to handle best at high speeds. In deed, the word "sporty" was coined to refer to a sleek but robust design that exudes power. It was later personified to refer to the person behind the wheel or in the modelling world, the person at the remote controls.

The following is a basic glossary of sports car terminology and a basic listing of sports car manufacturers (many of which have their counterpart cars in the world of model gas remote control cars).

- FF - front engine, front wheel drive. The FF layout has a moderate capability for high speed handling and is seen in some models such as the Fiat Coup?, and the Lotus Elan M100.

- FR - front engine, rear wheel drive Considered the ?classic? sports car design, the engine drives the rear wheels but keeps the weight off the back. The FR is good at drifting corners while still maintaining control. Mercedes-Benz is recognized for using this layout for its models.

- RR - rear engine, rear wheel drive With the engine at the back driving the rear wheels, weight placement on a RR layout provides outstanding traction for a car. However, without auxiliary driving aids like stability control, handling becomes difficult. These days, the only manufacturer who keeps the RR layout for its cars is Porche.

AWD ? all wheel drive An AWD layout offers the easiest handling, making it ideal for those who are just starting to race sports cars. Audi began the extensive use of this technique with the Quattro. Japanese manufacturers like Mitsubishi used this design to increase handling, making it an excellent rally car.

Because of more stringent regulations in the United States, sports car manufacturers are more widespread in Europe than in America. Nevertheless, American makes are in equal competition with their European and Asian counterparts. Some recognized manufacturers and models are:

Alfa Romeo; Alpine; Aston Martin; Austin-Healey; BMW; Bugatti; Caterham; Davrian; De Lorean; Ferrari; Fisker; Jaguar; Koenigsegg; Lamborghini; Lotus; McLaren; Maserati; MG; Morgan; Panoz; Porsche; Triumph; TVR; Vector.

If this article has whetted your desire for a sports car, go out and buy one now, if you are well-off. If not, why not do the next best thing and get yourself a 1:8 or even a 1:5 gas-powered, remote-controlled sports car? - 30538
