If You Create, Form A Company!

On the other side of the curtain by Mitch Santell

A Corporation Has More Rights Thank You Do.

You have an idea for a project. You want to make sure keep control in the process of taking action. The single most significant shift in being a company is that the U.S. Supreme Court determined back in 2010 that a “company,” has the same rights as an individual does.

To protect yourself, your family and your team, you must be a company! The only one I wrote this blog posting for is you! I’ve helped to raise capital by putting together the right capital strategy. Said one-way capital is attracted to a project, said another way money would avoid you like the plague.

You must think and act like a Corporation! There are thousands of ways to structure your company. The freedom of the individual rights of a sovereign citizen in the USA is now over.

Here are an article that will empower you to take action! Please review them carefully and do your research.

Here is what I found today:

Supreme Court Decision Delivers Blow To Workers’ Rights

In a case involving the rights of tens of millions of private-sector employees, the U.S. Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote, delivered a major blow to workers, ruling for the first time that workers may not band together to challenge violations of federal labor laws.

Writing for the majority, Justice Neil Gorsuch said that the 1925 Federal Arbitration Act trumps the National Labor Relations Act and that employees who sign employment agreements to arbitrate claims must do so on an individual basis — and may not band together to enforce claims of wage and hour violations.

“The policy may be debatable but the law is clear: Congress has instructed that arbitration agreements like those before us must be enforced as written,” Gorsuch writes. “While Congress is of course always free to amend this judgment, we see nothing suggesting it did so in the NLRA — much less that it manifested a clear intention to displace the Arbitration Act. Because we can easily read Congress’s statutes to work in harmony, that is where our duty lies.”

Ginsburg dissents

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing for the four dissenters, called the majority opinion “egregiously wrong.” She said the 1925 arbitration law came well before federal labor laws and should not cover these “arm-twisted,” “take-it-or-leave it” provisions that employers are now insisting on.

She noted that workers’ claims are usually small, and many workers fear retaliation. For these reasons, she said, relatively few workers avail themselves of the arbitration option. On the other hand, these problems are largely by a class action suit brought in court on behalf of many employees.

The inevitable result of Monday’s decision, she warned, will be huge under-enforcement of federal and state laws designed to advance the well-being of vulnerable workers. It is up to Congress, she added, to correct the court’s action.

In his oral announcement, Gorsuch took the unusual step of elaborately rebutting Ginsburg’s dissent, which is five pages longer than the majority’s opinion.

A green light for employers

The ruling came in three cases — potentially involving tens of thousands of nonunion employees — brought against Ernst & Young LLP, Epic Systems Corp. and Murphy Oil USA Inc.

Each required its individual employees, as a condition of employment, to waive their rights to join a class-action suit. In all three cases, employees tried to sue together, maintaining that the amounts they could obtain in individual arbitration were dwarfed by the legal fees they would have to pay. Ginsburg’s dissent noted that a typical Ernst & Young employee would likely have to spend $200,000 to recover only about $1,900 in overtime pay.

A Corporation has more rights than you do. Act like a Corporation and enjoy all of the rights that they do because they are you!

 

Will WordPress Continue to Grow As A Platform? Yes, I said yes!

Reflections by Mitch Santell

Each time I log into WordPress, I see the following scree

wordpress worry
WordPress Opening Screen.

WordPress claims to power 30% of the internet. I would like to say that I believe them. It would be interesting to note what percentage of their users are on the official WP platform and which users have downloaded the software to their server. Of course, I can’t answer any of this because I don’t work for WordPress.

The reason I know that WordPress will continue to grow is that their platform has created a space to network with thousands if not millions of other bloggers and postings.

The reason WordPress is on my mind is that I am looking at the plethora of platforms that are out there and each time I come back to WordPress.

From 2006 until 2009 I blogged at Typepad which was and is a competitor to WordPress. Typepad’s “Program it yourself platform” is known as Moveable Type. When I deleted my original WordPress site, it was gone and erased from the internet.

It was a lovely surprise to go back to my 2006 site and still see it online and intact.

Movie Capital Blog
My original blog still online at: http://moviecapital.typepad.com

Typepad might be a way to go for some of you who also need a stable and secure platform. Each online service their strengths and weaknesses but I have found it comes down to the interface and how fast you can get your content up there.

Another Reason To Dump FaceBook

Now you know the rest of the story by Mitch Santell

not facebook bazinga

Here is another substantial reason to get off of your FaceBook Account. The EU (European Union) is shoving their rules and regulations down every American user.


Facebook announced Wednesday it would begin rolling out changes to how it handles private data this week to comply with forthcoming EU rules, with European residents seeing the measures first.

The social network, which has been rocked by disclosures about hijacking of personal data on tens of millions of its users, said it will start implementing “new privacy experiences” to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which become effective May 25.

“Everyone—no matter where they live—will be asked to review important information about how Facebook uses data and make choices about their privacy on Facebook,” said a statement from chief privacy officer Erin Egan and deputy general counsel Ashlie Beringer.

“We’ll begin by rolling these choices out in Europe this week.”

Under the new policy, Facebook users will be asked to review and make choices about ads they receive, including whether they want Facebook to use data from third parties.

Facebook users will also be asked to review and choose what to share about the political, religious, and relationship information on their profiles.

Additionally, users will be allowed to opt in or out of use of facial recognition technology.

The statement said users will be told that facial recognition is optional, but that it could offer some benefit, such as being notified when someone is using an unauthorized picture.

“We not only want to comply with the law, but also go beyond our obligations to build new and improved privacy experiences for everyone on Facebook,” Egan and Beringer wrote.

The news comes a week after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg faced 10 hours of questioning in two congressional panels following revelations that personal data was harvested on 87 million users by Cambridge Analytica, a consultancy working for Donal Trump’s 2016 campaign.

The issue for me as always is privacy. This is what Steve Jobs had to say about Privacy back in the day!

“My kids accuse me and my wife of being fascists and overly concerned about tech, and they say that none of their friends have the same rules… That’s because we have seen the dangers of technology firsthand. I’ve seen it in myself, I don’t want to see that happen to my kids.” – Steve Jobs

Start Your Own Music Label

Comments on Pay to Play and the State of the Music Business by Mitch Santell

Start your music label: https://www.dittomusic.com/record-label-in-a-box

There has never been a better time to start your own music label. I have watched and read as dozens of Reggae Artists have truly taken their career’s back.

Regardless of what anyone tells you, the days of “Pay To Play” are finally coming to an end. Want a more profound indication of this? Look at what is happening at Billboard!

This is what Music Business Worldwide had to say:


When The Harlem Shake hit No.1 in the US, just 309,000 of its 103 million first-week streams came from audio services like Spotify.

The song was also helped by 262,000 downloads – driven by YouTube viewing, no doubt – but it got little help from a radio audience of just two million.

To exclude video streams from the Hot 100 would have ignored the public’s newfound ability to turn a song into a pop culture phenomenon almost overnight.


Five years later, Billboard has decided that a YouTube stream is no longer worth the same as a Spotify stream.

Starting in July, Billboard’s new weighting system for the Hot 100 will create a hierarchy that discriminates paid services from ad-supported services – and audio from video.

The Harlem Shake might not have reached No.1 if released in 2018.

This new scheme will work on a points basis:

  • Streams from on-demand audio services – Spotify, Apple Music, et al – are given one point;
  • On-demand video streams from YouTube, Vevo and others receive 0.67 points apiece;
  • Finally, programmed streams by Internet radio services – non-interactive and limited functionality, meaning you can’t choose a song or listen to an entire album from start to finish – like Pandora and Slacker Radio are given 0.5 points each.

How will these changes play out?

I took 2017 US year-end numbers from BuzzAngle, estimated the total number of streams for each category above, and then calculated each category’s share of total annual streams.

Then I applied Billboard’s new point system to these 2017 numbers.

This is what the total market looks like before and after the new weighting scheme:

It is interesting to note that Billboard purchased Radio & Records on July 7, 2006 shutting down R&R one year later laying off hundreds of employees so I have no love for Billboard Magazine for what they did to the radio business in 2006.

Billboard mag buys rival Radio and Records

Friday 07 July, 2006

As expected, Billboard magazine has reached an agreement to acquire Radio and Records, its 33-year-old Los Angeles-based competitor.

R&R has always maintained a strong focus on radio.

Billboard has its own radio-driven publication, Billboard Radio Monitor.

Billboard and R&R both publish their own airplay charts, which are created using data from competing airplay monitoring firms, Nielsen SoundScan’s BDS (owned by VNU, parent company of Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter) and Mediabase.

Billboard owner, Dutch media giant VNU, says it will keep the R&R brand and will integrate R&R’s L.A.-based operations into the Billboard Music Group. R&R publisher Erica Farber will remain and the takeover date is July 31. VNU didn’t announce a price for the deal that’s long been speculated about.

Radio & Records was founded in 1973 by Bob Wilson, has witnessed several ownership changes. In the late 1980s and early ’90s, the publication was owned by radio chain Westwood One. The magazine was purchased by Perry Capital in 1994.

American Dystopia, Pretend To Be A Beta

Inner Secrets Disguised as a Blog Posting by Mitch Santell

There is a real cultural transition happening right here right now in the United States of America. This transition is not new but was never as apparent as it is now.

The change is this: Alpha Men are no longer appreciated, respected or tolerated by the mainstream media.

The solution is this: If you are an Alpha Male, pretend to be a Beta male. The benefit of this is that you would not be harassed, bullied, tormented or gas lamped by people.

Alpha-vs-Beta-Male1

5 Minutes 32 Seconds


The Difference Between Alpha and Beta Males

Alpha Males Are:

Confident – alpha males tend to think very highly of themselves. They aren’t always right or perfect, but they always believe in their own ability and themselves no matter what.

Not Embarrassed Easily – alpha males don’t worry too much about other people’s opinions. If they did they would never speak up, do what they want, or go against social norms.

Masculine – alpha males are men. They come in all shapes and sizes but have common traits: leaders, dominant personalities, comfortable around the opposite sex, etc.

Take What He Wants Attitude – alpha males are not jerks or rude but they believe they are entitled, this allows them to do things and request things an ordinary person would not.

Direct and Honest – alpha males are not afraid to speak their mind. If they need something, they will tell you. They don’t hide behind a lot of fluff when they are talking to you. They tell you things you might not want to hear.

Social – alpha males have a dynamic personality that allow them to connect with all types of people.

Take Chances – alpha males are risk takers (big or small). They aren’t afraid to fail because they know that success comes from taking chances.

Beta Males Are

Nice guys – beta males are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They help you when you need help, they are courteous and pleasant to be around.

May Question Their Ability – beta males lack the confidence alpha males have. There are times that beta males will second guess themselves or make excuses to not do something even though they are fully capable. They just don’t always realize their potential.

Worry About What Others Think – beta males are usually restricted in life because they care too much about what other people think. This includes family, friends and strangers. These external factors limit what a beta male does and the choices he makes in life.

Puts The Needs of Others First – this isn’t a bad thing, but beta males put the needs of others ahead of their own. They are very giving people and unselfish.

Secretive – beta males don’t always make their desires known to others. Beta males have secrets they keep to themselves including their career aspirations, dreams, and sexual desires. This is usually due to not wanting to be judged by others and may be due to lack of self-confidence.

Work On Yourself First

Reflections In The Mirror by Mitch Santell

The most important thing that I work on each day is myself. How can I mentor or produce or inspire another person if I am not the best version of myself?

My observations and opinions are based on my experiences, books I have read, conversations that I have had with others. It is my quest to be coachable and willing to revisit topics and situations that are not comfortable.

Living in a post-modern era here in Southern California reminds me of an out-take from Blade Runner. Since I can’t read your mind, it is best I work on my own.

Netflix Doesn’t Need Hollywood Anymore

Written by Mitch Santell

netflix

The shift started in 2013 with the premiere of House of Cards. Netflix, in my opinion, does not need Hollywood anymore nor does the company care what Hollywood thinks.

Some will say that Netflix is just producing big-budget Tell-Lie-Vision shows. My take? There is something much bigger happening. Think of Netflix as the Apple, Inc. of streaming. Why do I think that? Answer: Apple listens to its customers, and it would appear that Netflix is doing the same thing.

My experience of Netflix on a Mac or a PC is substantially better than my Apple TV not because Apple TV does not work, it is the interface. It is the fact that Netflix has incorporated their algorithm into everything that you watch on their service.

Netflix vs. Cannes: Will the Company’s Original Content Succeed Without Hollywood Approval?

For those who haven’t browsed the Netflix catalog recently, the streaming service has taken a page from Hollywood studios and dived headlong into the production and distribution game. Its name is on titles with big stars like Adam Sandler and Will Smith — these stream alongside the company’s popular TV series like Stranger Things and Lost in Space.

It’s important for Hollywood studios to project an air of prestige around their more ambitious projects, and events like Cannes also provide gobs of free publicity. But the tussle between Cannes and Netflix arose from a recent change in the festival’s rules. A new regulation mandates that for a film to play in competition, it must have theatrical distribution in France.

That’s a tough one for Netflix, as French law stipulates there has to be at least a three-year gap between a film’s theatrical run and its debut in home entertainment such as streaming services. Almost needless to say, that’s a no-go for a company whose success relies on streaming content.

In reaction to the festival’s new rule, Netflix withdrew the five titles it planned to unveil at Cannes. Since then, the two sides have had few positive words for each other.

Living room vs. movie theater

The dispute benefits neither party. It makes the festival look reactionary and old-fashioned in a film and entertainment world that’s rapidly changing. And Netflix appears to be playing the role of intolerant Silicon Valley disruptor — our way is the future, and if you’re not on board, forget you.

In its movie-making efforts, Netflix has fewer allies. That’s no surprise, given its insistence on debuting its feature films in theaters and on the streaming site simultaneously (its big-budget fantasy action movie Bright was to open in a grand total of two cinemas in the U.S.).

After The Truth Movement

Insights on Mother’s Day 2018 by Mitch Santell

There is a small group of us in America who are committed to the truth. This commitment means that we have to rethink our position at all times because as more facts become available, we have to recalibrate our thinking.

There is no community within The Truth Movement, merely a mutual respect, and understanding that the world we once knew is already over.

We do not see the world the way the world is; we see the world the way. What does this mean? If you can’t be open to another point of view then maybe the time has come for you to leave the conversation.*

The Art of Forgiveness – Part 1

Forgive yourself and forgive others. Hot off the presses.

Homegirl Confessions

So this is just the first part of a series I put together on the subject of forgiveness. It’s something that many people struggle with, no matter what age.  Simply my point of view on forgiving yourself, friends, family, and others people in your life — and how learning how to forgive can make you happier in the long run.

Lesson #1 – Forgiving Yourself

I’m not going to act like I know everything about forgiveness because I definitely don’t. I’m not going to pretend like I understand all types of pain that warrant or don’t warrant forgiveness either. However, I do know a bit about coping. I know about resilience. I know about growth. I know about strength. Everyone has their own experiences, but I really believe that if you want to be able to forgive others, you must be able to forgive yourself first. Of course, while forgiving…
