first_imgLiberia’s international hip hop artist Scientific will for the first time launch a song in Liberia before it is released to the rest of the world.“The launching of ‘Rotate’ is special to me because it’s going to be the first time I ever launch a single here at home, and my people deserve it,” said the rapper.According to Scientific, ‘Rotate’ is about beautiful women or divas displaying how well they can dance or move their bodies on the dance-floor in a rotating manner. ‘Rotate,’ which features and has an epic afro pop flow from Quincy B, can move party people to “get your backs off the wall” and dance. From the sounding of things, this song is on its way to attaining international renown. Apart from Scientific and Quincy B, some of the other household names slated to perform at the launch are: Eric Geso, K-Zee and 2Switt.The “It’s War” rapper said “nowadays fans want to party so you do not need a rocket scientist to tell you that…and that’s exactly what the song ‘Rotate’ is about,” said Scientific. He said that the idea for the song originated with Quincy B, who actually brought the idea to Scientific with a chorus/hook already done. “He did the hook so I just matched it,” added Scientific.Scientific, who has shared the same stage with world renowned artists like Jay-Z, Fat Joe, Akon and Fabulous, now has the song ‘Rotate’ trending in East Africa by popular radio DJ Anna Fetty in Tanzania, DJ Ant Iowa in the US, and by other deejays around the world. Scientific said the song was specially made to show appreciation for his fans for being supportive of his career, adding: “They need to turn up so we can party together at the launch.”“I just want my fans to know I love them too much. Also at the launch I will be giving them a special opportunity so we can interact better with each other on the red carpet,” he said. In related news, Africori, Africa’s leading digital music service provider based in London and Cape Town, has signed a deal with Scientific to distribute his music around the world. The artist joins a list of top artists like Wizkid, Becca, Jon Bricks and others to be signed to the company.The song ‘Rotate’ will be launched at Club Wanwusu in Brewerville on Saturday, December 19 at 7:00pm. Admission for VIP is US$25, double VIP US$50 and ordinary US$10.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Last year alone GOAL reached more than five million people in need in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. GOAL’s Director of Fundraising & Marketing, Eamon Sharkey, said: “GOAL Jersey Day is one of Ireland’s longest-running fundraisers, and has been in existence for more than three decades.“Last year more than €150,000 was raised to support our work all over the world and we are appealing to the people of Donegal to once again support us – and have fun at the same time.“It’s the perfect opportunity to proudly wear your team colours, and to share sporting opinions with anyone in the office, or school, who will listen to you! It can also boost team, school or office spirit by working together for such an important cause.”This year GOAL was one of the first humanitarian aid agencies to respond in Zimbabwe to the devastating aftermath of Cyclone Idai which left hundreds of thousands of people without food or shelter. Thanks in part to the support of the Irish people GOAL has reached over 100,000 people in four districts in Zimbabwe with emergency kits and food supplies.Your team and company can be a part of this important work, by signing up today! To sign up to GOAL Jersey Day, please email jerseyday@goal.ie or visit www.jerseyday.orgDonegal public urged to support ‘Jersey Day’ this October was last modified: September 21st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgTags:#Google#news#Real-Time Web#RSS & Feeds#RSS Readers#web Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Update: Our original reporting was based on the increased speed we and other bloggers noticed yesterday. We have now received confirmation from a Google spokesperson that our informed guess was indeed correct. Google will post an update about this news in the next few days. We have updated this post to reflect this new development.From Slow to Real TimeBloggers and readers started to complain about Google Reader’s delays shortly after Google launched the service in its current form, but until today, Google hadn’t really done anything to address these complaints. Google began to publish real-time feeds for shared Google Reader items in August 2009. Until now, however, Google did not consume the real-time updates from PubSubHubbub-enabled feeds, even though most of Google’s own blogs and FeedBurner now publish in real time. Google’s App Engine, too, offers support for PubSubHubbub and some of the most popular real-time notifications bots are hosted on App Engine. It’s important to note that these real-time updates (assuming our observations and those from other bloggers turn out to be true) will only work for PubSubHubbub-enabled blogs. One of the major problem with Google Reader is that it pings relatively obscure feeds very infrequently and this won’t change anytime soon if these feeds don’t support real-time updates yet.How to Enable PubSubHubbub on Your BlogIf you use WordPress and want to enable PubSubHubbub on your own blog, you can do so by installing the PubSubHubbub Wodpress plugin. By default, every blog on Blogger and Posterous already supports PubSubHubbub. Update: we mistakenly reported that WordPress.com blogs use the PubSubHubbub protocol, but WordPress.com actually uses the rssCloud format, which Google doesn’t currently support.If you’re using Feedburner to manage your RSS feeds, you can also turn on Google’s PingShot service and sent out PubSubHubbub announcements in real time. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… frederic lardinois We just received confirmation from Google that Google Reader now consumes PubSubHubbub feeds in real time. Until now, it often took half an hour or longer before new posts from popular blogs and news sites would appear in Google Reader. Now, however, posts from PubSubHubbub-enabled feeds (including our own RSS feed) have started to appear in Google Reader almost immediately after they are published. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
