*Ebola Awareness* Join Brightlife Music & Brightlife charitable Foundation Inc to prevent and create awareness for Ebola

Key facts

  • Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans.
  • The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
  • The average EVD case fatality rate is around 50%. Case fatality rates have varied from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks.
  • The first EVD outbreaks occurred in remote villages in Central Africa, near tropical rainforests, but the most recent outbreak in west Africa has involved major urban as well as rural areas.
  • Community engagement is key to successfully controlling outbreaks. Good outbreak control relies on applying a package of interventions, namely case management, surveillance and contact tracing, a good laboratory service, safe burials and social mobilisation.
  • Early supportive care with rehydration, symptomatic treatment improves survival. There is as yet no licensed treatment proven to neutralise the virus but a range of blood, immunological and drug therapies are under development.
  • There are currently no licensed Ebola vaccines but 2 potential candidates are undergoing evaluation.

Symptoms of Ebola virus disease

The incubation period, that is, the time interval from infection with the virus to onset of symptoms is 2 to 21 days. Humans are not infectious until they develop symptoms. First symptoms are the sudden onset of fever fatigue, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is followed by vomiting, diarrhoea, rash, symptoms of impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases, both internal and external bleeding (e.g. oozing from the gums, blood in the stools). Laboratory findings include low white blood cell and platelet counts and elevated liver enzymes.

 

Prevention and control

Good outbreak control relies on applying a package of interventions, namely case management, surveillance and contact tracing, a good laboratory service, safe burials and social mobilisation. Community engagement is key to successfully controlling outbreaks. Raising awareness of risk factors for Ebola infection and protective measures that individuals can take is an effective way to reduce human transmission. Risk reduction messaging should focus on several factors:

  • Reducing the risk of wildlife-to-human transmission from contact with infected fruit bats or monkeys/apes and the consumption of their raw meat. Animals should be handled with gloves and other appropriate protective clothing. Animal products (blood and meat) should be thoroughly cooked before consumption.
  • Reducing the risk of human-to-human transmission from direct or close contact with people with Ebola symptoms, particularly with their bodily fluids. Gloves and appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn when taking care of ill patients at home. Regular hand washing is required after visiting patients in hospital, as well as after taking care of patients at home.
  • Outbreak containment measures including prompt and safe burial of the dead, identifying people who may have been in contact with someone infected with Ebola, monitoring the health of contacts for 21 days, the importance of separating the healthy from the sick to prevent further spread, the importance of good hygiene and maintaining a clean environment.

Treatment and vaccines

Supportive care-rehydration with oral or intravenous fluids- and treatment of specific symptoms, improves survival. There is as yet no proven treatment available for EVD. However, a range of potential treatments including blood products, immune therapies and drug therapies are currently being evaluated. No licensed vaccines are available yet, but 2 potential vaccines are undergoing human safety testing.

 

There’s An All-Beyonce Radio Station In Houston? We Want To Go To There

by mauricebobb

Brightlife Music NOW

Attention BeyHive: There is a radio station in Houston that has officially changed its news format to become all Beyoncé, all the time.

You heard right. This is not a drill. The former News92 FM shut down on Tuesday (October 7) and woke up “like this” the next morning, playing Beyoncé songs around the clock.

“She’s Queen [Bey]. In looking to make a transition, we go back to what we know,” Radio One’s Yashima Azilove told ABC 13’s Eyewitness News. “We know urban radio. We’re in Houston, the combination seemed like a winning one.”

Wow, Beyoncé really does run the world — or at least the Beygency does.

Unfortunately, all those back-to-back Yoncé hits came at a hefty price.

The changeover from news reports, traffic updates and weather conditions to the nonstop playlist of “Drunk in Love,” “Flawless” and other chart-toppers by Houston’s favorite daughter left 47 of News92′s employees without a job.

“This difficult decision is a result of sustained poor ratings performance and significant financial losses over the past three years despite the substantial financial and human resources we invested,” said Radio One in a statement on its website.

“Unfortunately, the market hasn’t shown a sustainable appetite for news radio, but each of you motivated us daily to produce a high-quality news program,” continued the statement. “Together, we made history.”

According to reports, all of the employees that were laid off were given severance packages.

“They gave it their best shot. Management lost money on this operation for four straight years,” Dennis Spellman, one of the impacted journalist, told ABC 13. “I can’t think of any other company that would have given us that amount of time.”

Who’s The American Idiot Now? Green Day Nominated For Rock Hall Of Fame

by gil kaufman

Brightlife Music NOW

 

Their sounds defined the 1990s and gave voice to an entire generation of burnt-out, fed-up, terminally bored teens looking for a soundtrack to their lives. And even though their music was about rebellion, angst, smashing the system and rejecting the mainstream, now they seem like shoo-ins to make it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the first ballot.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Green Day and Nine Inch Nails have been nominated for induction into the Rock Hall as part of the class of 2015, which also includes L.A. gangsta rap crewN.W.A., legendary 1980s mope rockers the Smiths, punk godfather Lou Reed and former Police bassist and solo superstar Sting. They join a list of previous nominees up for induction again that ranges from electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Chic and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band to the Marvelettes, the Spinners, Stevie Ray Vaughan, War and Bill Withers.

Though they started out as snot-nosed teens playing all-ages shows at underground punk venues in Berkeley, California, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool rose to worldwide domination in the 1990s. They’ve sold 75 million albums on the back of such massive hits as “Longview,” “Basket Case,” “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life),” “Holiday,” “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and countless others, not to mention spawning a Broadway musical, “American Idiot.” They’ve won Grammys, created some of the greatest music videos of all time and they made it in their first year of eligibility, duh!

Tinashe’s New Album Aquarius: 3 Must-Hear Tracks

By John Walker

Brightlife Music NOW

 

The stereotypical Aquarius would probably see a lot of themselves in Tinashe’s debut studio album — out Tuesday (October 7) — even if they don’t want to talk about it right now, OK? The 17-track release stays cool and collected from start to finish, but a closer listen reveals a whole lot of chaos boiling just beneath its icy surface.

For every time 21-year-old Tinashe Kachingwe detachedly brags about how much she loves getting “2 On” or making a “Thug Cry” on Aquarius, she follows it up with some tender introspection. The last remnants of a crumbling relationship come crashing down with a whisper on “Pretend,” and “How Many Times” sees our lady getting unabashedly vulnerable behind closed doors — and sampling Janet Jackson’s Control-era classic, “Funny How Time Flies (When You’re Having Fun),” while she does it.

In placing her Water Bearer status front and center, Tinashe creates yet another reason to invite the inevitable comparison to Beyoncé — hallowed be her name. Lest we forget, the reigning queen of mainstream R&B has fully owned her inner Virgo ever since her Dangerously In Love days, debuting with not one but two songs (“Signs” and “Gift From Virgo”) dedicated to her perfectionist-leaning sun sign.

But Tinashe’s style traces its lineage through a different, less dazzling crop of R&B singers (think Aaliyah), and her appeal often lies in how far from “Flawless” she can fall: She seethes in lieu of confrontation, she doubts herself instead of others, she blows up when she shouldn’t and she doesn’t when she should.

Then again, if you want Susan Miller-level readings, go to AstrologyZone.com. How about we check out three standout tracks from Tinashe’s Aquarius?

Nicki Minaj Gives Us Proof That ‘Anaconda’ Is Always In Demand

It seemed like only yesterday when Nicki Minaj stunned us with her “Anaconda” cover art, and then proceeded to paralyze us with the accompanying video — and clearly we’re not the only ones who enjoyed it. Her Minajesty is celebrating the fact that “Anaconda” is now certified Platinum.

Nicki announced the news via Twitter and Instagram last night, noting that the song hit the Platinum mark in the States, just as it was added to iTunes in the UK.

Obviously, as soon as it was added, “Anaconda” climbed to #2, and it was followed by Jessie J’s “Bang Bang” at #3, which also includes a Nicki feature. She also informed us that the song iscurrently #2 in Australia, while “Bang Bang” is #1 and her collaboration with Usher on “She Came To Give It To You” is #4.

So basically, she’s winning everywhere at the moment.

Lil Wayne Snaps On Yo Gotti’s ‘Errrybody (Remix)’

By Adam Fleischer

Brightlife Music NOW

 

 

Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V is due later this month, but — thankfully for Weezy fans — that doesn’t mean he can’t take some time out to drop bars for friends. And that’s what he’s done twice this week, first on Game’s “F–k Yo Feelings,” and now on Yo Gotti’s “Errrybody (Remix).”

After screaming “I ain’t got Instagram” (Gotti’s hook complains about people fronting on Instagram), Tunechi launches into his energetic verse, spitting rhymes at a feverish pace and dropping the tongue-twisting couplet: “And I really got bazookas with the silencer/ Pointed right at your medulla oblongata/ Ramen noodles on your collar.”

Gotti was certainly impressed with Weezy’s verbal display.

“Man, that Wayne verse is killer,” he told Noisey. “I got that verse from him when we were out on the Drake Vs. Wayne Tour. You know, I think there was just so much good energy out there, so many people coming out there. And one thing he always said in his show is that he made classic records. I think this is a classic Lil Wayne verse.”

Ludacris is also featured on the track, and even though we haven’t heard much music from him lately, he doesn’t sound like he’s lost a step.

“Luda’s one of the artists I respect that I’d never worked with on a record,” Gotti added. “Plus, he’s also one of the artists that I never heard a wack verse from. Certain artists like Bun B, Luda, you just never heard a wack verse from.”

Yo Gotti’s The Art of Hustle is due out later this year.

Luke Bryan No. 1, Carrie Underwood Soars Onto Country Airplay Chart

By Wade Jessen

Brightlife Music NOW

Luke Bryan claims his 10th career leader on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart and becomes the only artist to score three No. 1s this year, as “Roller Coaster” rumbles 2-1. Bryan’s other two chart-toppers this year are “Drink a Beer,” which started a two-week reign on the Feb. 15 list, and “Play It Again,” which wrapped a four-week run on the June 21 chart.

Bryan breaks past three artists that have each topped the chart twice in 2014: Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum and Blake Shelton.

 

Luke Bryan performs at the iHeartRadio Music Awards

 

Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood posts a career-best bow on Country Airplay, as “Something in the Water” roars in at No. 17. She posted her previous best start with “So Small,” which entered at No. 20 on the Aug. 18, 2007, list and went on to spend three weeks at the summit.

Propelled significantly by coordinated hourly play Sept. 29 on iHeartMedia-owned stations, the track is a new song from Underwood’s Greatest Hits: Decade #1, due Dec. 9. Although the set’s track listing hasn’t yet been revealed, it’s expected to include most, if not all, of her 13 Country Airplay leaders. She most recently topped the chart with “Blown Away,” which reigned for two weeks starting on Oct. 27, 2012.

With “Water” also having been released commercially on Sept. 29, expect the song to make a notable splash on this week’s airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart.

Jessie J ‘victim of hoax dubbing’

Brightlife Music NOW

Jessie J has reportedly become the latest victim of a voice-dubbing internet hoax. A clip of the pop star introducing her new hit Bang Bang and failing to hit the notes recently went viral. But new reports indicate the video was doctored to make it appear Jessie was off in an attempt to deliberately embarrass her.

 

UK newspaper The Mirror notes the ‘prankster version’ was uploaded just days after the original video was posted online by TV network In:Demand. The content is believed to be identical, aside from the dubbed lyrics.

“Hello, I’m Jessie J – and this is Louis on guitar – I’m about to sing my first single from my third album Sweet Talker, and it is called Bang Bang. Let’s go,’ she says in both.

A spokesperson for the singer had not immediately commented on the report.

However, the 26-year-old star recently opened up about how hurtful it is to hear rumours spread about her.

“Out of everything, hearing stories that aren’t true about myself and being ill are the hardest things I’ve had to deal with over the past few years. It never gets easier,” she told British magazine Cosmopolitan earlier this month.

The pop star was diagnosed with a hereditary heart defect when she was a child and spent much of her youth in hospital. Although her success has led many to believe she had fully recovered, Jessie admitted her health problems haven’t ‘gone away’.

“I still go to hospital. There are times when I have palpitations and I have to get on with it. I’m not on medication anymore but I have to balance my lifestyle and my diet, and not push myself,’ she said. ‘When I don’t feel well I stop. You have to let the badness out like a bruise.”

Charli XCX Goes All Ramones For Her New Single

Ever wondered what The Ramones would sound like if they were (all) alive today and also female? Wonder no longer, as Charli XCX is out with a new single off of her upcoming LPSucker, and it’s what she calls “future Ramones.”

“London Queen,” which premiered Monday (October 6) on Rolling Stone, definitely has shades of the Ramones’ “Beat On The Brat” — just listen to that driving beat and the cadence of the lyric in which Charli spits “with a baseball bat” (a line also found in the Ramones classic). And then there’s all those “oi!”s.

The old-school punk rock vibe comes as no surprise, as Charli has said that her upcoming album was influenced by that genre. Still, the “Boom Clap” singer asserts her role in the new wave of female alt-poppers in the chorus of the jam, produced by Sky Ferreira collaborator Justin Raisen: “I never thought I’d be living in the USA/ Doing things the American way/ I never thought I’d be living in the USA/ Living the dream like a London queen.”

Reign on, lady! Sucker drops December 16 — but you can get more Charli below via her performance of “Break The Rules” today on “Big Morning Buzz Live.”

Willow Smith’s ‘Your Love V2′ Is An Addicting Aphrodisiac

by Emilee Lindner

Brightlife Music NOW

 

 

Willow Smith keeps rolling out beautiful music — continuing on Friday (October 3) with “Your Love V2.” The youngest Smith progeny took the smooth beat of The xx’s “Basic Space” and wrote a love song on top of it.

“I love you more than you could ever know,” she sings sweetly, almost making us forget that she’s 13 — it’s just that good. “But how did you know/ You swept my heart/ Said those words/ You cradled me exactly the way I needed.”

 

The mood of the song changes like her own: “Too bad we don’t ever see each other/ My emotions change like the weather/ And I’m sad.”

Throughout “Your Love,” we get soft melodies, hearty statements, passive-aggression, childlike sing-alongs, sincerity and fun. She gets playful and giddy, giggling in the background and ending the song just as you’re about to start dancing.

“Your Love V2″ follows her cover of King Krule’s “Easy Easy” and her appearance on Kitty Cash’s mixtape. On Wednesday, brother Jaden released “Trophy V6″ on his SoundCloud, prepping for his Cool Tape Vol. 2.

 

Beyonce And Nicki Minaj’s ‘Flawless (Remix)’ Video Is…Flawless

By Adam Fleishcer

If you’ve been agonizing during the last month over the fact that you missed Beyoncé andNicki Minaj perform their “Flawless (Remix)” live in September, today, you can start to feel better.

On Monday (October 6), the leading ladies dropped a video for their recent collab, which features footage from their On The Run Tour performance in Paris. Bey starts off by being normally “Flawless,” singing the lyrics to the hook from her self-titled album favorite. Then, she ups the ante.

“Can I do something cool for y’all? Special?” she asks, before launching into the remix — including the memorable lyric, “Of course sometimes sh– go down/ When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”

Soon, Nicki joins for her own flawless verse, where she celebrates “the Queen of Rap slayin’ with Queen Bey.” Nearby, Bey dances flawlessly. Later, they stand side-by-side wearing flawlessly bright outfits.

And all in the world was flawless.

Ariana Grande and The Weeknd went in front of the lens earlier this week to shoot a video for their steamy duet “Love Me Harder.” The pop star took to Twitter to reveal the first photos from the dark and mysterious set.

She rocks her signature cat ears and a long black skirt while standing alongside her Canadian collaborator in an underground stairwell. Hannah Lux Davis, who directed the “Bang Bang” video, is once again at the helm.

Ariana Grande and The Weeknd

The duo performed their collaboration for the first time on the season premiere of “SNL” last weekend.

“Love Me Harder” follows the hits “Problem” and “Break Free” as the third single off Ariana’s chart-topping album My Everything. She will kick off her “Honeymoon Tour” next February.

 

 

Big Sean ‘I Don’t F–k With You’ Lyric Video: No Naya Rivera, But Plenty Of Statues And Social Media

By Adam Fleischer

Brightlife Music NOW

When Big Sean dropped four songs all at once earlier this month, immediately, one seemed to connect more than the others: “I Don’t F–k With You.”

The track has a number of things going for it. It’s co-produced by Kanye West, DJ Mustard and DJ Dahi, for one. It features a blistering verse from E-40. It’s upbeat and catchy. And it’s one of the best break-up songs in recent rap history — despite Sean telling MTV News that he was actually still in a relationship with Naya Rivera when he wrote it.

“I wasn’t angry, man,” he said. “You know, the funny thing about ‘I Don’t F–k With You’ is that I actually wrote that while I was in a relationship. I wasn’t bitter. I wrote that while I was with my ex.”

Maybe that’s why there’s no sign — overtly, at least — of his ex in the new lyric video for the track. There are, however, rotating statue heads, as well as images of Sean’s text messages, calls and Instagram. Plus a few typos (It’s “That’s,” not “Thats,” Sean, but we won’t hold it against you).

The G.O.O.D. Music rapper’s new album is on the way.

Nas: Documentary Is ‘An American Story’

By Evelyn Diaz

Brightlife Music NOW

Time Is Illmatic, a new documentary by One9 and Erik Parker, celebrates Nas‘s groundbreaking 1994 hip hop album Illmatic. The film examines the impact of the LP at the time it was released and in the twenty years since.

 

Now, the rap icon himself sits down with BET.com to talk about the film, the state of hip hop today and the changing demographics of the city that influenced him, and that he still calls home. “This film is about me, the music, my journey and an American story,” says Nas. “It’s about a time period when most of the audience [today] were kids.”

Nas also reflects on the changing game of hip hop, but maintains that one thing remains true from 1994 to today. “Hip hop is a rough place, and you’re going to get punched around” he says, talking about the backlash faced by contemporary artists like Iggy Azalea. “I think [she] knows that. She’s a really intelligent woman and she loves hip hop. You need tough skin, no matter what color your skin is.”

Pink’s Been Releasing New Music — Whether You Knew It Or Not

By John Walker

Brightlife Music NOW

you+me, pink, dallas green,

Pink’s latest move might be her most surprising yet — and yes, I’m including all the high-flying, Cirque du So-slay acrobatics she’s brought to her live performances over the past couple years.

Not only has Ms. Alecia Moore teamed up with singer/songwriter Dallas Green to release an album of down-tempo folk-pop, titled rose ave., but the duo, who go by You+Me, have been steadily releasing new music for over a month now.

“He has the most angelic voice I’ve ever heard in my life,” Pink said of Green, who used to frontAlexisonfire and now performs under the name City & Colour, in an introductory video on the pair’s YouTube channel. She continues: “And I thought, ‘Huh, maybe one day if I get good enough he’d sing with me.” According to Dallas, he didn’t need much convincing.

Once they got into the studio together, Pink and Green (sidenote: I JUST REALIZED THAT THEIR NAMES ARE PINK AND GREEN, OH MY GOD) say they recorded the entire LP in about a week. “It doesn’t sound like ‘me featuring you’ or ‘you featuring me,’ ” said the Canadian half of the duo. “It sounds like us.”

This theme of parts coming together to form a cohesive whole runs deeply throughout all of the new You+Me music they’ve released thus far. On “You And Me,” the two harmonize as one: “You and me were always with each other/ Before we knew the other was ever there/ You and me, we belong together/ Just like a breath needs the air.”

Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ Video to Live Again as 3-D Film

By Kory Grow

Brightlife Music NOW

 

Michael Jackson‘s 14-minute music video for “Thriller” will be getting revived in 3-D next year, now that the clip’s director, John Landis, has settled a legal dispute with the singer’s estate. Although he is still working out specifics, the filmmaker hopes to release the video – which was the most expensive clip of its time and was rated the greatest video of all time by Rolling Stone readers – on Blu-ray and even in theaters, according to the New York Daily News.

Michael Jackson in 'Thriller.'

About six months before Jackson’s death in 2009, Landis filed a lawsuit accusing the singer of “fraudulent, malicious and oppressive conduct” with regard to the “Thriller” video, according to E! Online. Landis was seeking 50 percent of the net profits of the video, which, at the time, was rumored to be in the neighborhood of $1 million.

“That lawsuit went on for so many years, but we settled and they paid me finally,” Landis told the paper. “And so, actually there is something happening with ‘Thriller.’ It is going to reappear in a highly polished and three-dimensional way that is very exciting on the big screen.”

The Animal House and Blues Brothers director, whose horror flick An American Werewolf in London inspired Jackson to hire him for “Thriller,” refused to offer the paper any other details about the project. “I cannot tell you any more,” he said. “I might have to kill you.”

A source told the Daily News that Jackson had hoped to include a 3-D version of “Thriller” as part of his “This Is It” London residency. The source also suggested that the estate had been considering making a “Thriller” video game, either as “a dance experience or a zombie-style, shoot-‘em-up-style movie.” After all, as Vincent Price once said, “No mere mortal can resist the evil of the thriller.”
