The Power of Music on Memory and Learning

The power of music to affect memory is quite intriguing. Mozart's music and baroque music, with a 60 beats per minute beat pattern, activate the left and right brain. The simultaneous left and right brain action maximizes learning and retention of information. The information being studied activates the left brain while the music activates the right brain. Also, activities which engage both sides of the brain at the same time, such as playing an instrument or singing, causes the brain to be more capable of processing information.
According to The Center for New Discoveries in Learning, learning potential can be increased a minimum of five times by using this 60 beats per minute music. For example, the ancient Greeks sang their dramas because they understood how music could help them remember more easily ). A renowned Bulgarian psychologist, Dr. George Lozanov, designed a way to teach foreign languages in a fraction of the normal learning time. Using his system, students could learn up to one half of the vocabulary and phrases for the whole school term (which amounts to almost 1,000 words or phrases) in one day. Along with this, the average retention rate of his students was 92%. Dr. Lozanov's system involved using certain classical music pieces from the baroque period which have around a 60 beats per minute pattern. He has proven that foreign languages can be learned with 85-100% efficiency in only thirty days by using these baroque pieces. His students had a recall accuracy rate of almost 100% even after not reviewing the material for four years.
The top three schools in America all place a great emphasis on music and the arts. Hungary, Japan, and the Netherlands, the top three academic countries in the world, all place a great emphasis on music education and participation in music. The top engineers from Silicon Valley are all musicians. Napoleon understood the enormous power of music. He summed it up by saying, "Give me control over he who shapes the music of a nation, and I care not who makes the laws" . (

Bring Your A Game "One in a Million" . Upgrade your Game

Young black men are falling for the okey doke. We are being bamboozled. We follow the record executives' plan to mimick the "bad guy", the criminal, the "gansgta". Alot of rappers don't get a record til the get a record deal. They have fallin for the hype they are selling as a result of direction of the record mogul who tells them this is what sells. We love "Scarface" the movie. The jails are filling. No longer are there any state run institutions. Now they are private for profit corporations using slave labor to profit, on top of the stipend they are given each month for each prisoner. It is easier to go to school and use that same entrepreneurial mind to work at a legitimate business that can help pull black folks up and make a profit at the same time. Young men look at this film and get a dose of this ism.

Where Are We As Black People

I am of the same feeling as the South Carolina state Senator Robert Ford, Democrat of Charleston’s. He can remember a time before segregation when black people were a different breed than they are now. I honestly believe that today’s blacks are more mislead, softer and unable to withstand the things that our great and grandparents where able to suffer through, overcome and conquer. We are a weaker people. We are afraid of work even when it comes to looking for work or building a legal business. Our faith has diminished as whole. Those who do go to the house of prayer are bamboozled, hoodwinked and run amuck by small church pastors and mega church pastors. These churches are fundraiser (Malachi 3:10) organization that do not serve the community. Oh and by the way that scripture was from God to the pastors. Start reading at Malachi chapter 2, "Study and show thyself approved". And don't forget what Paul said "I would not have you ignorant". We are told Malachi 3:10 so much we know that by heart, then the pastor misquotes it. Why don’t these mega churches start some factories and put some black folk to work. Let us create a Jew heaven for ourselves "a factory". Manufacture anything Shoes, drawers, jeans anything doggone thing. The number of black businesses is down. The ability to work together is down. The family paradigm is down. Yes, we have more educated blacks now, but with less sense. How many black republicans are there? Where are our leaders at? Those educated persons of the institutions of higher learning that felt a need to represent the masses or at least point us in the right direction?
Martin, Louis, Huey, Malcolm, where are today’s generation of leaders? Don't drink the Kool aid these bishops are not our leaders. We are a lazier people we won't even work to help ourselves or our people. President Obama is not the leader of our race. He is the leader of the Free World. So don't blame him. "Don't hate him, congratulate and support him.
