"Despite the council’s decision, a native group called True Americans lambasted the move, claiming amnesty will only serve to reward lawbreakers. “They all need to be deported back to Europe,” John Dakota from True Americans said.
The Native American National Council will offer amnesty to the estimated 240 million illegal white immigrants living in the United States. At a meeting on Friday in Taos, New Mexico, Native American leaders weighed a handful of proposals about the future of the United State’s large, i…

This is lovely new music in the classical style.
 
After starting university last September, I have not written any solo piano pieces, I apologize to all of my wonderful friends for having been inactive on the uploading front. However, I have not been idle and have been working on several other chamber music pieces which I will also upload as soon as I’m able to record them. I hope that you enjoy my new composition.

A month ago during one of our weekly studio classes with piano professor Dr. Corey Hamm, a student brought in the first movement of Rachmaninoff’s 2nd piano concerto. Dr. Hamm told us that the key to playing the famous piano introduction was to learn to revel in the beauty of a simple chord. This approach helped me in writing and recording of this piece which has a very simple two part form based essentially on four chords. Throughout the piece, I try to really acknowledge and feel the emotional impact that comes with each different chord. For this reason, it takes a long time for me to move from one section to another.

DMCA FAIL of the day:
"According to YouTube's Content-ID system both EMI Publishing and PRS own the rights to a 12 second purring loop."
YouTube's automated takedown tool is known for its flaws, but this week it crossed a line by attacking a purring cat. According to YouTube's Content-ID system both EMI Publishing and PRS own the rights to a 12 second purring loop. The cat in question, Phantom, has filed a dispute and hopes to reclaim his rights.

Cat link of the day.
Many cats sleep 16-20 hours a day, more than any other animal, says Bonnie Beaver, a veterinarian at Texas A&M's College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences and a former president of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Another "Best of 2014" list. See if you can figure out why this one is personal.
