Website             :

James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix  was an American guitarist and singer-songwriter. He is widely considered to be the greatest electric guitarist in the history of music, and one of the most influential musicians of his era across a range of genres.

After initial success in Europe, he achieved fame in the United States following his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, Hendrix headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival and the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival.

He often favored raw overdriven amplifiers with high gain and treble and helped develop the previously undesirable technique of guitar amplifier feedback. Hendrix, as well as his friend Eric Clapton, popularized use of the wah-wah pedal in mainstream rock which he often used to deliver an exaggerated pitch in his solos, particularly with high bends and use of legato.

He was influenced by blues artists such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Albert King and Elmore James, rhythm and blues and soul guitarists Curtis Mayfield, Steve Cropper, as well as by funk and some modern jazz.

As a record producer, Hendrix also broke new ground in using the recording studio as an extension of his musical ideas. He was one of the first to experiment with stereophonic phasing effects for rock recording.

Hendrix won many of the most prestigious rock music awards in his lifetime, and has been posthumously awarded many more, including being inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. An English Heritage blue plaque was erected in his name on his former residence at Brook Street, London, in September 1997. A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (at 6627 Hollywood Blvd.) was dedicated in 1994. In 2006, his debut US album, Are You Experienced, was inducted into the United States National Recording Registry, and Rolling Stone named Hendrix the top guitarist on its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all-time in 2003. He was the first person inducted into the Native American Music Hall of Fame.

How much do you know about issues facing our oceans?

Yesterday have a chat with a friend. He is starting his aquaculture business and was sharing with me some facts on our ocean and current fishstocks available in the ocean.

Some of the key points that he shared hit me.
- According to survey if we go on with our current rate of Industrial fishing, there will be no more 
   fishes to be caught anymore in the sea in 20 to 30 years time.
- Many human activities on the land has effected the ocean in a very very big way.
- If we go on with the way we are, in future there might be only bred fish available for consumer.

I'm very much interested in this topic so I did some searching on Google and found some important facts about our ocean from National Geographic.

Here's are some Questions & Answers from National Geographic on our ocean :

Q: Where does most ocean pollution came from?

 Land activities?

Marine Activities?

or both equally divided?

A: More than 80% of all ocean pollution comes from land. Oil from cities and factories 
     washes down drains into ocean, runoff from fields and lawn carries fertilizer to the 
     sea, and tons of solid garbage-most of it plastic-winds up bobbing in the ocean.


Q: Elevated water temperatures can cause coral to do what?


Grow too fast?

A: Coral reef are in trouble across the globe as rising greenhouse gas levels warm 
     the oceans, elevated temperatures trigger mass episodes of bleaching, in which 
     corals eject their symbiotic algae. Bleaching slows coral growth, makes them 
     susceptible to disease, and can lead to large-scale reef die-offs.


Q: Ocean acidification is putting which animals most directly at risk?

Marine Mammals?

Shelled Animals?


Bottom-feeding fish?

A: When carbon dioxide dissolves in this ocean, carbonic acid is formed. This leads to higher 
     acidity, mainly near the surface, which has been proven to inhibit shell growth in marine animals. 
     It’s also suspected as a cause of reproductive disorders in some fish. 


Q: Industrial fishing is estimated to have wiped out what percent of large predator fish?





A: Industrial fishing, according to one survey, has wiped out perhaps 90% of large predatory fish, 
    such as swordfish, marlin, and the biggest types of tuna. Since 1950, more than 50 million tons of 
    tuna and other top predators have been taken from the pacific.


Q: What area of the ocean is suffering the most from habitat destruction?


Ocean floor?

Deep sea?

A: Most areas of the world’s ocean are experiencing habitat loss. But coastal areas, with their 
    closeness to human population centers, have suffered disproportionately. 
    Habitat loss here has far–reaching impacts on the entire oceans biodiversity. 
    These critical areas, which include estuaries, swamps, marshes, and wetlands, serve as 
    breeding grounds or nurseries for nearly all marine species.


Q: World ocean temperatures set a record in 2009. What was the average water temperature 
     worldwide in July2009?

A: In July 2009, the world’s ocean set a record for high temperatures. 
    The average water temperatures worldwide was 62.6 degrees Fahrenheit (17 degree Celsius), 
    according to the National Climatic Data Center. An El Nino weather pattern combined with 
    global warming to send the temperatures higher.



Q: How much has the global mean sea level risen over the last century?

Not at all?
1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.6cm)?

4 to 8 inches (10 to 20cm)?

15 to 20 inches (38 to 51cm)?

A: Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over 
     the last century, the global mean sea level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20cm). 
     When sea level rise rapidly, even a small increase can have devastating effects on coastal 


Q: Which ocean’s fish stocks have taken the hardest hit from over fishing?




A: Nearly a third of the world’s fish stocks are overfished, and the Atlantic has taken the hardest hit.
    In many regions of the Atlantic, more than 45% of stocks are overfished.

TOC Marketing Department Sheryl, THE COSPLAYER !

Before we start this chapter let me give some introduction of what  
Cosplay, Manga and Anime is all about.  : )

Cosplay - short for "costume play", is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Characters are often drawn from popular fiction in Japan( manga and anime), but recent trends have included American cartoons and Sci-Fi as well as other pop-culture.

Cosplayer - one who participate in cosplay.
Manga - consist of comics and print cartoons (sometimes also called komikku), in the Japanese language and conforming to the style developed in Japan in the late 19th century. In their modern form, manga date from shortly after World War II, but they have a long, complex pre-history in earlier Japanese art.

Anime - commonly defined as animation originating in Japan. The definition sometimes changes depending on the context. In English-speaking countries, anime is also referred to as "Japanese animation".
Anime, like manga, has a large audience in Japan and recognition throughout the world. Distributors can release anime via television broadcasts, directly to video, or theatrically, as well as online.
Both hand-drawn and computer-animated anime exist. It is used in television series, films, video, video games, commercials, and internet-based releases, and represents most, if not all, genres of fiction. Anime gained early popularity in East and Southeast Asia and has garnered more-recent popularity in the Western World.

Example : Dragon Ball Anime

Lastly, Sheryl's view of the Cosplay World :

“It’s always an eye-opening experience to see people from all levels coming together and putting so much effort into cosplaying. For me, cosplay allows me to be somebody else for that day, and totally immerse myself into the character’s personality and its background. Also, it’s a very good platform to meet new friends as cosplayers are all very friendly, and we are like a one big family.”

*After doing some research about Cosplay online to write this blog, it was an eye opener for me. 
  It almost feels like it is a different world all together. 
  Cosplay is actually a worldwide phenomena now and there are tons of information on the internet. 
  For those who are interested just type 'cosplay' in your search engine and you will be 
  surprised with how much you will get : )
