Chinese Pod, Mobile Learning, "What's the Deal?" - Jenny Zhu reports.

This is it! For most Capital Region kids, the first FULL week of school begins today! On the first day of China’s school term, Guangzhou’s Southern Metropolitan Daily interviewed some kids about their life-goals. One girl told the journalist that her dream is to become “a corrupt official." That's the spirit, kid!

Never miss a note::: (Via Aspiration's Purse) Auto Tune is what artists use to sing in tune and that's why in a lot of songs you hear weird "steps" in between a long note. It actually breaks up your voice so that you only sing in-tune notes. Then you get the "T-Pain" effect. Mariah Carey just used it in "Obsessed". If you listen to a lot more music, you can start hearing it in a lot of songs you wouldn't expect to hear it in.WELL, for 2.99, you can download a new Smule application for the iPhone called "I AM T-PAIN" and be a singer too!!!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
