In his later career he received hundreds of patents for devices in fields such as high-powered transmitting, sonar, and televisionhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reginald_Fessenden

The Blazing Elwoods

are proud to inform you about the nation-wide release of their hit single “Big Red Rooster”.

The Blazing Elwoods are a rockin' country band from Sudbury, Ontario Canada. The band is composed of

Brent Wohlberg, a local songwriter from the Sudbury area. Brent has been writing songs for over 25 years.

His latest foray into the country veign was inspired by the musical stylings of Johnny Cash, Stomping

Tom Conners, and Hank Williams.

" My love for this country genre stemmed from listening to dad's Old Stomping Tom Albums, and from

there I revisited his Johnny Cash, San Quentin album. I discovered that I had been missing out on some

incredible music. The raw honesty of these songs sucked you right in. These songs also didn't seem to have

a hint of pretension.” -Brent Wohlberg

Brent hopes that you enjoy his first single, "Big Red Rooster", and wants folks to look for a full length

album coming out in the spring. The Single is now available at the CD Baby Website. Follow this link to

Youtube Video "Big Red Rooster" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN36C7Ohq0I

SS Edmund Fitzgerald (nicknamed "Mighty Fitz," "The Fitz," or "The Big Fitz") was an American Great Lakes freighter launched on June 8, 1958. At the time of its launching, it was one of the first boats to be at or near maximum "St Lawrence Seaway Size"which was 730 feet (220 m) long and 75 feet (23 m) wide. From its launching in 1958 until 1971 the Fitzgerald continued to be one of the largest boats on the Great Lakes.[1]

On November 10, 1975, while traveling on Lake Superior during a gale, the Fitzgerald sank suddenly in Canadian waters approximately 17 miles (15 nmi; 27 km) from the entrance ofWhitefish Bay at a depth of 530 feet (160 m). Although it had reported having some difficulties before the accident, theFitzgerald sank without sending any distress signals. Its crew of 29 perished in the sinking with no bodies being recovered. When the wreck was found, it was discovered that the Fitzgerald had broken in two.

The sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald is the most famous disaster in the history of Great Lakes shipping.[2] The disaster was the subject of Gordon Lightfoot's 1976 hit song, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald".

SOCAN Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada

http://www.socan.ca

SOCAN was formed in 1990, but its predecessors have been around in some form or another in Canada since 1925. SOCAN was created as a result of the merger of two former Canadian performing rights societies: The Composers, Authors and Publishers Association of Canada (CAPAC) and the Performing Rights Organization of Canada (PROCAN).

In 1925, the Performing Rights Society (PRS) of the United Kingdom formed the Canadian Performing Rights Society (CPRS). The CPRS flourished and expanded during the depression, but after losing a major test case, ASCAP was brought in to help reform it. Parliament established a Copyright Appeal Board, which determined the fees chargeable by a Performing Rights Organization (PRO). In 1945, CPRS changed its name to CAPAC and became independent of both ASCAP and the PRS. Over the years, CAPAC worked to protect the rights of its members, especially in the face of opposition from the well-established radio and television industries.

PROCAN, originally called BMI Canada Ltd., was formed by Broadcast Music Inc. of the U.S. in 1940 to license its repertoire in Canada. In 1947, BMI began actively working for Canadian composers, lyricists, songwriters and music publishers. In 1976, BMI Canada became a not-for-profit PRO and in 1977, changed its name to PROCAN to reflect the changed nature of the organization.

In 1990, the duplication of operations was eliminated when CAPAC and PROCAN merged to form SOCAN. The ’90s saw Canadian artists moving to the forefront of the world music scene. SOCAN members such as Jann Arden, Roch Voisine, Lara Fabian, Our Lady Peace, Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan achieved worldwide acclaim and success. This trend has continued well into the new millenium,  as members like  Nickelback, Avril Lavigne, K'Naan, Simple Plan, Nelly Furtado, Three Days Grace, Beast, Diana Krall, Michael Bublé and Billy Talent have done the same.

At the same time, Canadian film production companies, such as Nelvana and Atlantis (now Alliance-Atlantis), have been on the creative cutting edge, using music in almost all productions. The ’90s also saw battles over cable rights as well as the decline of state-owned broadcasters worldwide. In the last decade, the public has changed the way it views music creators and has also become more aware of the implications of copyright. The widespread use of computers and the growth of the Internet has made intellectual property and copyright common terms.

SOCAN continues to fight for the rights of music creators and publishers. We lobby the Canadian government to regulate the Internet in the same way every other means of distribution and broadcast is regulated. We are establishing a leadership role for the future with our members, with our customers and with society. Most of all, SOCAN is a member-based organization, existing for and working on behalf of our members and customers.

As a collective for the performing rights of our members - the creators and publishers of music - we make sure they get paid for the public performance and communication to the public of their music. We do that by collecting licence fees, as set by the Copyright Board of Canada, from anyone playing or broadcasting live or recorded music.

We also pay royalties to members of our affiliated international Performing Rights Organizations (PROs) for the public performances in Canada of their copyright-protected works. Similarly, we pay royalties to Canadian music creators and publishers when their music is performed in other countries, by virtue of reciprocal agreements with these PROs. Because of these agreements, our repertoire includes musical works written by their members as well as our own.

Copyright owners still have to protect their own copyright, but the advantage of joining SOCAN is that we collect licence fees from thousands of venues that play music, a task that would be difficult and time-consuming for copyright owners to do on their own.

We make the process simple and efficient for our customers, too. We administer performing rights in a simple way so that everyone who authorizes, or wants to play or broadcast music - broadcasters, promoters, venue operators, and others - can obtain the right quickly and easily.

Science Rules:

Secrets of a Mind-Gamer

from the New York Times (Registration Required)

...In 2003, the journal Nature reported on eight people who finished near the top of the World Memory Championships. The study looked at whether the memorizers' brains were structurally different from the rest of ours or whether they were just making better use of the memorizing abilities we all possess.

Researchers put the mental athletes and a group of control subjects into f.M.R.I. scanners and asked them to memorize three-digit numbers, black-and-white photographs of people's faces and magnified images of snowflakes as their brains were being scanned. What they found was surprising: not only did the brains of the mental athletes appear anatomically indistinguishable from those of the control subjects, but on every test of general cognitive ability, the mental athletes' scores came back well within the normal range. ...

There was, however, one telling difference between the brains of the mental athletes and those of the control subjects. When the researchers looked at the parts of the brain that were engaged when the subjects memorized, they found that the mental athletes were relying more heavily on regions known to be involved in spatial memory. At first glance, this didn't seem to make sense. Why would mental athletes be navigating spaces in their minds while trying to learn three-digit numbers?

Connect the Quantum Dots for a Full-Colour Image

from Nature News

Ink stamps have been used to print text and pictures for centuries. Now, engineers have adapted the technique to build pixels into the first full-colour 'quantum dot' display--a feat that could eventually lead to televisions that are more energy-efficient and have sharper screen images than anything available today.

Engineers have been hoping to make improved television displays with the help of quantum dots--semiconducting crystals billionths of a metre across--for more than a decade. The dots could produce much crisper images than those in liquid-crystal displays, because quantum dots emit light at an extremely narrow, and finely tunable, range of wavelengths.

The colour of the light generated depends only on the size of the nanocrystal, says Byoung Lyong Choi, an electronic engineer at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology in Yongin, South Korea. Quantum dots also convert electrical power to light efficiently, making them ideal for use in energy-saving lighting and display devices.

The Mystery of the Missing Moon Trees

from Wired Science

Fifteen years after NASA astronomer David Williams started searching for them, hundreds of trees grown from space-faring seeds are still missing.

The "moon trees," whose seeds circled the moon 34 times in Apollo 14 astronaut Stuart Roosa's pocket, were welcomed back to Earth with great fanfare in 1971. One was planted in Washington Square in Philadelphia as part of the 1975 bicentennial celebrations. Another took root at the White House. Several found homes at state capitals and space-related sites around the country. Then-president Gerald Ford called the trees "living symbol[s] of our spectacular human and scientific achievements."

And then, mysteriously, everyone seemed to forget about them. "The careful records weren't kept, or if they were kept they weren't maintained," Williams said. Williams, whose job includes archiving data from the Apollo missions, hadn't even heard of the moon trees until a third grade teacher e-mailed him in 1996 to ask about a tree at the Camp Koch Girl Scout Camp in Cannelton, Indiana.
