should i read a contract before signing?
Before signing a record deal or any other contract artists need to make sure they understand EVERY SINGLE THING on the contract they are signing. There are many companies that are willing to take advantage of young artists or those they know will not read over the whole agreement. It doesn’t matterRead more
What Role Does BrainGain Africa Play in Bridging the Knowledge gap in Africa?
There needs to be an intentional effort made to transfer knowledge from our minds to those in our communities, specifically the continent of Africa. Most of us felt the gap left when the veteran generation before us were pushed out of the creative/entertainment industry due to the digital boom, a spRead more
Scelerisque a, phasellus in eget magna. Sagittis varius tincidunt tellus ornare tristique fringilla amet, lectus?
We aren’t, and we don’t. You are misinformed. In Britain, the word ‘biscuit’ means a hard baked cookie, like a graham cracker. Since this is the normal use of this word in the UK, we don’t automatically think of the plain scone-type baked goods for which Americans use the word ‘biscuit’. US EnglishRead more
Quis arcu et volutpat fames enim purus. Netus nascetur purus tortor nec?
It may be little things like not using native idioms, that you would pick up from living in the UK. But, hey. That’s just a guess. Also, I don’t think I would’ve noticed you were foreign from what you wrote, if you didn’t point it out.
Purus urna amet ullamcorper ac a at congue egestas. Ut tincidunt nunc, nibh diam euismod metus. Senectus?
Yes, I understand it. I hear a lot of this incorrect grammar from my wife. I would expect that the person that spoke this was possibly Chinese. In Chinese there are no tenses or plurals. No he or she pronouns. The context tells all. So it might have been a direct translation from Chinese.
What is the process of writing a song like? What is the creative process like?
Yet another update?? Could be a refined version of the Feb 7 update that shook us up. Traffic went up and down and settled to near normal after about 10 days. But last seven days have not shown any change – if anything, traffic and page views have increased a little!
What is a nice way to end an interview that is clearly going badly?
I’ve also ended interviews as a candidate on the phone myself. They asked a question that I didn’t’ have the answer to and I told them that I didn’t know. The next 2 questions were in that same direction, with them knowing that I’d already said I wasn’t particularly fluent in that area but they keptRead more
Why do many songwriters seem to write their best songs early in their career?
When I was at Facebook, 2013–2016, the rumor I heard was the opposite. It was my understanding that Google practically had a policy of counter-offering anyone who got an offer from Facebook, and that seeking an offer from Facebook was a strategy Googlers used to up their compensation. Ironically, FaRead more
Is there an English equivalent to the French expression: “il faut d’abord apprendre à marcher avant de courir”?
While we do say this literally sometimes in English, we have a more common idiom that many people would probably think of first, if they weren’t translating. You have to crawl before you can walk. At least in American English, this idiom is very popular.
Elementum non elit eget sagittis, adipiscing enim, quam. Quis nunc arcu nunc velit nulla lectus risus mi etiam?
First, this answer hinges on the fact that you do mention to those who are assigning you tasks that you will have difficulty with them, and that this is accepted. Particularly in a junior role, even if only with a specific technology stack, that really should be accepted; nobody can expect someone wRead more
