Now our class is trying to see if we can increase Search Engine Optimization by hyperlinking our professor's sister's website. She currently owns a children's shop in the UK and we want to see if our blog entries can push her website to the first page of a google search. The keywords that need to be linked are outdoor trampolines chester. Let's see if our blogs can help her out!

Professor Trying to Out Smart Google...

In my, Information Technology Applications in Marketing my professor is trying an experiment to see if the entire class can get listed under a keyword created by Professor Brown. This keyword is nworbxela (which is his name spelled backwards). Hopefully, we'll get the results back soon and see if all of the classes blogs end up in the search engine!

HAWAIIAN MUSIC!!!

I was searching the web for music, when I came upon this blog that was talking about a new CD from the Hawaiian Islands. Orginally, when I started this blog, the Hawaiian Islands didn't even occur to me, but they have a music all their own too. So i decided to purchase this compilation CD of all Hawaiian artists, so I'll let you know how it is when I get it!!

In a blog called FLY Global Music Culture, I found a post dedicated to Sierra Maestra, musicians who come from the island of Cuba. This post partly discusses how Sierra Maestra had a hit concert in London as well as releasing another album. It shows everyone how passionate Cubans are about their culture and music. The band is internationally known and loved. Eduardo Himely, a member of Sierra Maestra, states "Cuban Music is popular because we play with heart, the most important part of song is that is reaches the people..."

A 'Masters of Caribbean Music' tour will be coming to the United States. It will represent the cultures of the Caribbean. The tour will focus on the three most distinct muscial traditions of the Caribbean. The first is calypso, which is a danceable music that can sometimes bring humor to social and political situations. Next is Jibaro music which was created in the highlands of Puerto Rico and usually played in ensembles. The last traditional music that will be played on this tour will be Haitian. This music is usually played by singers who are accompanied by small string-based ensembles.

'Masters of Caribbean Music' will star Slinger Francisco, a Trinidadian calypso musician, the Puerto Rican group Eco de Borinquen, and lastly a group from Haiti, called Ti-Coca et Wanga-Neges.

So check out your local venues to see when Masters of Caribbean Music is coming to you!
