A recently article on the website Medical Daily Times discusses how Scott Rocklage is paving the way for a cure to DM1. That is a genetic disorder more commonly known as Myotonic dystrophy type I. This conditions comes from RNA cells reaching toxic levels when too much protein is converted from DNA. This results in several important body organs becoming defective. As a genetic disorder, many people can be affected within a family. Having this disease can make for challenging times for a family.


In order to combat this disease, several companies have stepped up and donated a lot of money into research. Scott Rocklage recently released a press release about the lab work Matthew Disney has been performing. He states the research they have been working on for the past 12 years has produced results. Molecule medications is best the method to treat the disease. Everyone at the lab is looking forward to seeing how the tests advance. They wish to be able to fully treat any RNA disease someday.


The medical field is always full new advancements in technology. As we come to understand more, our treatment methods also progress. RNA diseases are a rare, but awful ailment in the body. The research has come a long way and has just recently began producing treatment methods. Scott Rocklage is one of those at the center of this research. His team has helped to fund the project and bought their experience along with it. At some point in the future, perhaps we will be freed of such awful diseases. Learn more:

Indie Music Scene on the Rise

There is a whole scene of Indie music that is sweeping the nation as people break away from mainstream music. More people are interested in building a playlist that reflects what they actually want to hear. They do not have to settle for everything that is found on the radio. In fact, Indie music has become something that has evolved as more people look to acquire music from various websites.


It is true that YouTube has singers that do remakes and eventually create their own albums. This, however,is more of a needle in a haystack type of approach to finding people that are in the Indie music scene. A much more organized way to find people what are doing in music is through a website called BandCamp. This is where more people have the ability to find Indie music artists based on a certain genre. This definitely makes it easier to find those artists that may be doing Neo-Soul or jazz music.


The great thing about websites like Bandcamp is that you can listen to certain tracks, and you can purchase directly from this site. This is a great benefit for Indie music artists that may not be on iTunes or Google play when it comes to the music that they have created thus far.


The Indie music scene certainly opens up a wide stream of selections for people to consider. It brings about a whole new change in the way that people look at the development of those artists that are creating their own buzz.


Typically an artist that is trying to create their own buzz will do so with social media. Twitter and Instagram are great platforms for these Indie music artists that are not relying on record labels to promote their songs to the mainstream consumer base.

How Arcade Fire Maintains Indie Culture in the Midst of Fame

A recent story about indie band Arcade Fire highlights some important points. Fame can be a rather odd thing for indie musicians. On one hand, the ultimate goal of any artist is to find an audience. But at the same time fame has a way of pushing people to a more consumer friendly style. For some musicians this isn’t really anything to worry about. The art and the profit are tied with each other in importance. But this is very different for indie musicians.


The term itself really showcases the reasons. Indie musicians are just that, independent. They chose their path so that they’d be able to hold tight to true artistic freedom. But this can make for a difficult balancing act when wider popularity enters into the picture. The desires of fans and the desire for freedom can be difficult to hold on to.


But there’s a strong lesson to be learned from Arcade Fire’s example. They’ve long been able to stay in touch with their reason for being by paying attention to their roots. Even if members change, the underlying history and purpose maintain. And as the article points out, this is exemplified by their recent trip to Dublin. Of course it’s not so much the trip as the reason for it. They came to pay their respects to the late Dolores O’Riordan. As part of the Cranberries, she was in many ways part of Arcade Fire’s foundation.


Arcade Fire’s style of music showcases a level of experimentation with music that did for the naughts what the Cranberries did for the 90s. And it’s little wonder that they did an amazing job covering one of the bands most beloved songs. The fact that they traveled such a long distance to pay their respects in such a big way says a lot about the band. And it showcases how indie musicians stay true to the craft.

The Indie Music Scene Expands with Crowds from Music Contest Shows

The Indie music scene is taking off in a huge way, and more people may have guessed some of the artists that would take to this type of music scene.


What music lovers will often find is that the contestants that have been on music shows like “The Voice” and “American Idol” will typically fall back and slide into the Indie music scene. This is where some of the people that lose on this show will go to get a crowd that is looking for their music.


There are a lot of artists down through the years that have lost on the shows and they have still become successful. The Indie music scene definitely provides a platform for people that are doing something that is a break from the mainstream. For shows like “The Voice” and “American Idol” it is obvious that the people that they are looking for or more pop oriented artists that have the ability to cross over.


The great thing about going on a show like The Voice and losing is that you still get recognized by people that love music. This allows you to at least get your name out there. From this point you have the ability to upload things to the Internet or provide people with access to shows that you are doing through social media. All of this plays a big part in connecting with people that you may not have had access to without the show.


The internet is definitely making it easier for more people to continue with their music careers even if they have lost on these bigger shows. “The Voice” is one show that tends to be more about the celebrities than the contestants. That is why they have a harder time when it comes to mainstream entertainment.

Arcade Fire’s Rendition of ‘Linger’ Pays Tribute to the Cranberries’ Singer

On Friday, April 6, 2018, Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire took to the stage and performed a cover of Linger by the Cranberries as a special tribute during their concert in Dublin, Ireland. The Cranberries’ late singer Dolores O’Riordan, who recently passed away this year in January, would’ve been proud of the Arcade Fire’s rendition of one of her greatest hits. The crowd of hundreds proudly sang along as the band played and the performance ended with a loud applause. The Cranberries’ late singer was 46 years old when she suddenly passed away on January 15, 2018. Dolores O’Riordan and the band were in London, U.K., to work on a few recording sessions before her untimely death. The cause of her death will not be released by the coroner until later this year.

Arcade Fire continued their act with a grand performance of their song Wake Up, which was released on their debut album “Funeral” back in 2004. The indie band’s latest album entitled “Everything Now” was released last summer and its track sharing the same title, became the band’s first ever single to reach number one on the Billboard charts. The album also won a 2018 Juno Award for “Album of the Year” and was nominated for four other Juno Awards. Arcade Fire will continue their 2018 tour and play throughout various venues and festivals located in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Canada and the United States before finishing it in Hasselt, Belgium. The band’s current members that kicked off the tour were lead singer Win Butler, his wife Régine Chassagne, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, Jeremy Gara and Win’s brother William Butler.

Lorde Covers “New York”

Twenty-one year old Lorde performed a cover of St. Vincent’s “New York” alongside Jack Antonoff. The powerful ballad proclaims that “New York isn’t New York without you, love,” and Lorde tweeted the lyrics “you’re the only mother fucker in the city who can handle me” last year.


That tweet caused fans to call for a Lorde and St. Vincent collaboration, but these fans are left to settle with a collaboration between Lorde and Jack Antonoff, St. Vincent’s co-writer and Lorde’s close personal friend. The two shared a memorable live performance of “New York” at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.


Antoff took to the New York stage with an acoustic guitar while Lorde sings the angsty ballad before transitioning into Lorde’s “Hard Feelings.” The performance is raw and simple with the two sitting cross-legged on the stage, facing one another. Lorde wears a dress and Antoff wears a hoodie and cap, the epitome of closeness. Their performance exemplifies the beauty of the song’s lyrics, and it gives fans something to cling to.


The New Zealand teen rocketed to relative stardom with the 2013 release of her hit “Royals,” but Lord took a small hiatus after her first album, Pure Heroine, and before her second album, Melodrama. Now, she continues to perform across the nation, impressing her fans and exciting their imaginations.


This cover isn’t the first of Lorde’s – Lorde tends to incorporate covers into her sets, affording her the nickname “Queen of Covers.” In fact, during live performances, Lorde has covered songs by Drake, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, and Paul Simon.


Listen to the performance here.

Stream Energy’s Philanthropy Through Stream Cares Foundation Helps Dallas’ Homeless

The world is much more complicated than it seems, and it’s good to know that we have companies and groups today that try to make things less complicated and more solutions-oriented. One of the few companies today that have the superior dedication to solving urgent problems in the world is Stream Cares.

The Patch Feature

In a feature from, we read that the Dallas-based Stream Energy  has so far created one of the most active, engaging and influential philanthropy work today that helps people affected by the Hurricane Harvey to get the recovery that they need. The Stream Cares Foundation is also able to make sure that the help they give is not just for those who need food and supplies. They’re also zeroing in on those who are now rendered homeless because of such tragedy.

Partnership With Hope Supply Co.

This project would not have been possible without also the support of the Hope Supply Co. With such assistance, it’s easy to find the right solutions for Dallas to cope with the kind of homelessness that the hurricane has brought upon the state. With Stream Energy’s help, the people in Houston who have been affected by the 56-inch-deep of rain all over Houston neighborhoods would get the kind of assistance that they need to recover. There’s a lot needed to be done to make sure that the people helplessly washed out by the storm can get the sustenance that they need, and it’s good to know that Stream Energy is there to offer the most that they can do to alleviate the people’s concerns.

Philanthropy is a tricky job to implement since it’s not that easy to help without being judged of doing so for virtue merchandising. However, what makes Stream Energy different is the fact is that it does this without the need for announcing it and without the requirement for those that they help to know that it was them who helped their concerns. Stream Energy’s philanthropy work for Stream Cares is indeed one of the few things in life that make you inspired to help, and it’s a good thing that we have more social groups  like this today.

The Return of The Breeders

For fans of early nineties indie and alternative, there is not a lot of room for building excitement from “New Music from Kim Deal.” However, when you add that said new music is written and recorded with her beloved side-project The Breeders, the bands first release in 10 years, the excitement builds. Then when you add that the release was written and recorded by the bands original lineup, who last appeared on album together 20 years ago and are the group responsible for the legendary album Last Splash including the slide hook driven hit Cannonball, you have finally reached peak indie-freak-out level excitement.
All Nerve, the band’s fifth studio album, was released last month on 4AD. Though the band members are now all in their fifties with nearly three decades of adult life between the band’s formation and present day, the album sounds as energetic and urgent as if it had been released side by side with earlier albums Last Splash and Pod. The album’s first single Wait in the Car has been widely accepted as a return to form for the band since its early release last October.
Though The Breeders have had a reputation for clashing inter-band personalities and members past struggles with substance use, the band put all of these concerns behind them reuniting in 2013 to tour in support of the reissue of Last Splash. It was during this reunion that the band began to get interested in creating new music together. While few could have predicted it, this interest bloomed into a full-length album that sounds undeniably like classic Breeders while avoiding sounding stale, even featuring a collaboration with current indie-rock star Courtney Barnett.
The Breeders are currently touring in support of All Nerve and can be seen playing shows around the globe this spring.

Are Matt Badiali’s Freedom Checks Legit?

Today, investment is a field that has come to the rescue of many. Many people around the globe have witnessed their income grow from zero to hundreds. However, not all live to celebrate the good story. A notable number have fallen victims of con advisors who approach them with convincing deals only to realize when it’s too late. The situation makes many people extra cautious to the point of making decisions without evaluating all the available facts. It’s for this scenario that most of the people in this category are likely to miss ‘Freedom Checks,’ the new kid in town. Read this article about Freedom Checks at Banyan Hill.

Not long ago, Matt Badiali, a celebrated investment expert released a video called ‘Freedom Checks’ that went viral but for the wrong reasons. The video received a lot of criticism from many who never bothered to dig on the facts. To answer the questions running through many people’s heads, I ought to dig Matt Badiali’s new tip and to begin with I must attest that the investment is legit.

In the video that attracted millions of views, Matt commenced by clarifying that freedom checks are not a government program such as Medicare, Social Security, IRA or 401 (k). Instead, he continued to state that they are much better as they are large over other programs. Besides, Freedom Checks have no age limitations as well as income limitations, and this sweetens the deal.

On taking a deep dive in the American’s legislative acts, you will realize that freedom checks enable a company to operate tax-free because of ‘Statute 26-F’. However, for these companies to enjoy the tax benefits, they must make sure that they generate 90 percent of their revenue from the production, processing, storage, as well as transportation oil and gas in the US. Also, they must agree to pay out freedom checks to stakeholders. Visit to know more.

Although the name might sound unique, these investments were legalized by the 1987’s Congress, and only a few had a clear picture of what they are. Based on statistics, about 568 companies qualify to issue freedom checks and meet the Statute 26-F criteria. Matt Badiali is a respected geologist and realized this individual investment while working for a renowned financial expert that gave him the opportunity to move across the globe to meet mining leaders. It is during the project that Matt discovered that the MLPs fell under companies that can issue freedom checks.

To begin with, these companies primarily focus on the production, storage, as well as transportation of oil and gas. Besides, the MLPs spend about 90 percent of their income to pay investors, the payments that Matt term as freedom checks. In this case, the payments are viewed as a return on capital hence investors don’t need to pay taxes on them. Besides, the sale of MLP investment is taxed lower as compared to personal income rates which mean financial freedom to investors. According to Matt, it is the high time people invested in freedom checks for economic gains in the long run. Check:
