Music & Business, Organics & Recycling

-- Quote of the Day --

Statistics reveal that 85% of the people out there who have never played an instrument would have loved the opportunity to play one …There is a great resource out there called Support Music ( – teaches people how to go about promoting music in the community. …National Association of Music Merchants ( also has a foundation that supports musicians and teachers… And Little Kids Rock ( is another foundation that provides resources, instruments and support to teachers. …I would say that there are a number of books that show that playing music affects a child’s mind as far as learning ability. …(Music therapy is being) used for Autism, Down Syndrome and also Alzheimer’s. …I remember playing in a band at New Year’s Eve, and we finished a song and a friend of the family walks up and says ‘I can’t believe this, This kid doesn’t say anything for 15 years and now he’s singing a song up on stage!’ …Music helped me in coming out of my shell and becoming more comfortable, in working with a team …leadership, salesmanship and branding, giving the fans what they want, creativity and innovation, individuality and passion.”

The largest police force of the UK is recycling guns and knives into materials for the construction industry which could eventually be used in London's Olympic site. Scotland Yard collected more than 52 tonnes of scrap metal from old keys, knives and guns during the last financial year. Recovered steel, iron and other more valuable metals were melted down and used in the structures of bridges and buildings, as well as in car and train production.
