X-Factor Teen Reed Deming’s New Song Seeks to Inspire
Self-Acceptance Movement by America’s Youth
San Antonio, Texas - Thursday, September 4, 2014   
Two years ago, 13 year old X Factor US - Season 2 semi-finalist Reed Deming was dubbed the “Next Justin Bieber” in a YouTube video of his live audition in front of judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, L.A. Reid and Demi Lovato.  That video has nearly 37 million views to date and now, at age 15, it's plain to see he’s anything but another Bieber.  As Deming prepares to release his new EP Satellites on September 9, 2014 on iTunes, he has taken to YouTube to promote his flagship single Crash Test Dummy (Broken) and explain the song’s message of self-acceptance. 
“This song, to me, is really about the acceptance of yourself.  There‘s so much that teenagers and young people have to go through these days.  And there is so much more pressure that is put on them by other people:  by society, by the media, by their peers.  It’s just a confusing journey figuring out who you are in this world and who you want to become.  And I feel that despite your flaws and your imperfections, you need to accept who you are and you may not be perfect but you need to understand that no one else is.” 
The behind-the-scenes video is set at Orb Studios in Austin, Texas, while Reed is in the live Crash Test Dummy (Broken) recording session with producer Matt Noveskey of platinum selling alternative rock band Blue October.  Noveskey points out that this song is a bit of a new, more mature musical direction for Reed and he’s a fan of the song’s inspirational message.  “I think everyone can relate to that no matter what generation you are.”  
Noveskey is not the first to say that Reed seems “wise beyond his years”.  He has also been called “the emperor kid” by rapper /producer Will.I.Am and an “old soul” by other musicians and teachers.  Reed comes across as a deep thinker who cares about people and wants to make the world a better place.   
“Every day my fans reach out to me about their struggles with self-acceptance.  Some even talk about hurting themselves which is heart-breaking.  I hope this song lets them know that I care about them and want them to be happy with who they are.”  Reed explains.   A lyric video for the song was also made that allowed fans to participate by featuring photos of them holding up signs with their favorite lyrics from the song.  Reed really hopes that the self-acceptance message in Crash Test Dummy (Broken) will resonate with people of all ages and backgrounds.  And, if the growing number of fan comments on his videos are any indication, it will:
“I'm speechless that you are able to articulate a message that speaks to every single human no matter what generation, race, or social status! You have an amazing gift Reed.”
“This brought tears to my eyes. Such an inspirational video. I can't wait for the song! Love you”
“I haven't listened the whole song yet and I'm almost crying. The message is so beautiful.” 
Fans are also starting a Twitter campaign in support of the self-acceptance message.  #BeYou

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware.

In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
