REFEREEZR: THE "HIGH TECH 'A' GAME" FOR THE GLOBAL CREATIVE AND BUSINESS COMMUNITIES


           For novice creative talents, moving their project – be it a song, an album, or a CD -- from the “concept” phase to the “productive” phase is a cost prohibitive endeavor.   If a major record label is involved, moving a creative project – a song  -- to radio stations for the purpose of having it promoted can cost as much as US$474,350.00.  All creative talents worry about controlling the integrity of their work product and how it is promoted.   They wonder if their product – the demonstration tape or the master of the CD – which they spent days, weeks, and sometimes months creating, will be unrecognizably altered by the record label to make it more palatable to a wider spectrum of prospective consumers and more conducive to creating a lucrative bottom line.


          Songwriter, independent musician and music producer, entrepreneur, and Philadelphia native Mr. James Kennedy clearly understands the machinations involved in moving creative projects from the “concept” phase to the “product” phase and the toll it can take on one’s budget.   A prolific lyricist, Kennedy, in the late 1990s began producing his songs and the songs of other artists, creating masters of those songs, and independently marketing them.   Kennedy soon discovered that this was a tedious and cost prohibitive task.  To control the integrity of his creative product and in an effort to bring down costs, Kennedy handled the tasks of marketing, distribution, and generating copies of masters and CDs himself.   But he could not be everywhere at once.   His ability to reach a wider audience was limited.   Out of necessity, Kennedy created a “High Tech ‘A’ Game” --- an APP -- not only for himself but for all creative talents who need help moving their creative project from the “concept” stage to the “product” and “distribution” stages.   Refereezer (https://www.refereezer.com) is the APP – the “High Tech ‘A’ Game” that Kennedy developed to help creative talents not only move their music to the marketplace but to also control the integrity of their product.


            Currently, Refereezer is being utilized by a number of creative artists and the Great Commission Community Outreach Ministries, Inc.   Businesses, academic institutions, health care professionals and providers, educators, clergy, and legal professionals  are a sample of the entities and individuals who can reach a wider audience utilizing Refereezer.  The APP levels the playing field for start-up, small, and medium-sized businesses by providing them with instantaneous access to their client base, while exponentially enhancing their ability to deliver high quality products and services on an expedited basis at a competitive price. 

            “Among other things, Refereezer is a self-selling music APP with self re-mastering presets for up and coming artists. Created one year ago, Refereezer serves as an online marketplace which allows them to display their creative projects  which, in turn, become readily available to an expansive audience that these artists would not otherwise be able to reach.  The scope of Refereezer goes beyond the creative community.  As an example, it can help businesses increase their market share and provide cost effective services to its clients,” Kennedy explained.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
