Kerchoonz Scraps Artist Fee During Unsigned Competition

Kerchoonz.com – the much anticipated answer to the music industry’s current downloading problem – is to scrap its artist sign-up fee for Christmas.

The groundbreaking new website, swamped by over 8 million hits and 80,000 unique visitors in November, is scrapping its £12.50 fee to mark the start of Kerchoonz Live – a month long competition to find the hardest working unsigned acts on the circuit.

Bands and artists have until the end of December to use Kerchoonz.com to promote themselves and earn money in a bid to bag a recording session at a famous Glasgow studio. As well as being able to record three tracks at the hands of top producer Ian Morrow (Wet Wet Wet, Rod Stewart, Seal), acts will get to keep all money earned from plays and downloads on Kerchoonz.com.

“I can imagine it’s going to be huge and why not?” says former Stereophonics star Stuart Cable. “Becoming a professional musician in a band is the hardest job in the world – so to do it this way is great.”

The social media platform lets registered artists and songwriters share their music and videos with fans while getting paid for every stream and download through a combination of the ISRC and play counts by utilizing unique coding and encryption within the application. Kerchoonz pays unsigned acts half a penny for every play and up to 10p for every download – by far the largest payments available to any act choosing to give away their music online.

Artists can even earn money by recommending other musicians to the site and, with no limit on the number of people you can recommend, it’s the hardest working acts that will reap the greatest rewards.

“Kerchoonz.com takes the world of online music to a completely different dimension by allowing musicians to earn money from their work without being exploited” says Co-Founder, Indiana Gregg.

Kerchoonz.com is currently locked in talks with both independent and major record labels to bring further content to the site, providing a comprehensive music catalogue for fans.

“If bands and artists use the promotional tools we provide for them, Kerchoonz.com will act just like a record company. Artists can effectively ‘sell’ their music without charging their fans anything for it,” says Gregg.

Kerchoonz is a place where musicians, artists, film makers, fans, business people, and technologists can meet and exchange in a free and open environment. Our mission is to provide a social platform that enables all of us to explore and create, listen and be heard, give. receive, and discover. Kerchoonz was founded by musicians who believe that artists and musicians should be encouraged and also compensated for their work.

Sims 2 Freetime – Pottery badge question..?

I have all the EPs and Stuff packs to date. Last night I finally added Freetime. I have a lady who makes plates and has succesfully made about 25. All the incorrectly made plates have been sold. I had her visit the secret arts and crafts lot. She even sells the plates in a home based business. She cant seem to get the bronze badge. I dont know whats wrong. In a far less time frame she has made it to silver in gardening but still nothing in pottery. I want her to be able to make something other than plates.. Help?
Do you raise enthusiasm by just making them do it more often? She does it all the time. Is there another way?

Having your Sim have a higher creativity skill level is supposed to help. The slow badge rate for the pottery wheel and the sewing machine have been a common complaint at the sims2.com. I don’t know if EA plans to include a quicker rate for the badge in a patch…whenever they finally release one again. :/

Mid Century

Mid Century
Which factors led to the rise of social justice since the mid 20th century?

And what were the main reasons that there wasn’t much interest in the theory of international relations before that time?

Social justice came in existence when women became aware of their rights or their treatment in their homes and outside their homes,
Before that time women were ignorant and use to suffer in the hands of their parents and especially their husbands.

Candle Holder

Candle Holder
I'm looking to remove candle wax from a glass and metal chandelier. I tried the freezer and did not work.

I do not want to scratch the metal with a knife abroad, and the holes for the candles are too small to fit inside a knife tried to wooden sticks, but not strong enough. I can not put in the microwaves by metal. Any other suggestions?

The easiest way is to work with very hot water in the sink. works every time.

Pernera Cyprus the Family Resort

Pernera in Cyprus is probably not one of the best known resorts on the East coast but it is certainly one of the nicest. Nestling below a hill this pretty little town has plenty to offer and holiday makers return there year after year. The main street sweeps right down to the sea front where there are several sandy bays protected by stone outcrops. These are perfect for bathing and snorkeling in the warm crystal clear Mediterranean waters. Being so well protected these bays are great for families with small children and there is plenty of shallow water for the little ones to paddle in. In essence Pernera is first and formost a beach holiday resort and the bigger hotels actually front right onto the bays. Lovers of water sports will have plenty of activities to get their teeth into including wind surfing and water skiing to name just a couple.

If you fancy a Cyprus boat trip Pernera is the place to be with its bustling harbor you will be spoilt for choice. Everything from leisurely cruises to heart stopping power boat rides can be booked there. Or maybe you prefer to just relax and watch the world go by with a nice cool drink. If so there is a great waterfront cafe right on Penera harbor where you can take in that beautiful view over the Mediterranean Ocean. On clear days you can see right across to Famagusta and the peninsula of Northern Cyprus. Several organized sea fishing trips also sail from the harbor catering for all levels including first timers so you could even catch your own dinner. If you fancy experiencing the thrill of a ship under real sail there’s a full sea going schooner and a modern catamaran that sails from Penera too.

Both these craft are available for party bookings and the latest trend appears to be floating wedding receptions with a full buffet on board. Talking of weddings, Cyprus is one of the top places for that romantic beach wedding and Pernera offers several great locations where couples can tie the knot. One of the most popular venues is the Golden Coast hotel which overlooks Pernera harbour and fronts right onto the beautiful sandy beach. Couples have the choice of holding the ceremony either under an ornate pergola or in the tiny church on the hotel grounds. The church is set within a pretty courtyard with an ornamental fountain and well maintained gardens making it perfect for those small iintimate wedding ceremonies.

There are several great hotels in Pernera of varied ratings right up to five star luxury should you want it. If you prefer the freedom of a self catering holiday there are also some great apartment complexes dotted around the resort too. The windmills holiday apartments are perfect for those that want to be right in the heart of things. The complex has a great restaurant bar and there is good family entertainment laid on every night throughout the holiday season. All the major sports fixtures are shown on the many wide screen TV’s and even the latest film releases are shown in the early evenings so the kids will be happy too. Talking of the little one’s, there’s a pizza hut and southern fried chicken outlet in Pernera too so even the fast food enthusiast will be happy.

Eating out in Pernera is a gastronomic delight and the only problem is that you won’t have time to sample every single restaurant. There’s everything from Chinese to Mexican and traditional Cypriot meze houses. If you like home from home cooking the Knights pub is a must visit either for a full English breakfast or a traditional Sunday lunch and a whole lot more besides. In fact many visitors to Pernera are so impressed with the food at Knights pub that they eat there every night of their holiday. Another great restaurant a few yards further up the road is the Gordon Blue. This friendly family owned eatery serves a varied menu of traditional and more exotic dishes at very reasonable prices. With so much to offer holiday makers it is hardly surprising that they return year after year to Pernera in Cyprus.
