In Africa, radio remains the best tool for informing the population, many have no access to the Internet or television and in this emergency caused by this health crisis.
“In these days of social distancing and confinement, radio has become a necessary service of life for many people,” Father Apollinaire Cibaka Cikongo explains to Aid to the Church in Need organization about what is happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo . The priest of the diocese of Mbujimayi founded 10 years ago, with the support of the pontifical foundation, Radio Ditunga based in Ngandajika. Since the churches are now closed, the broadcaster, which has a transmission range over an area with about five million inhabitants, has adapted its schedule by dedicating more space to the celebration of the Eucharist, prayer and other special activities.
Radios for education
Following the closure of the schools, radio stations also decided to broadcast live lessons to allow teachers to reach their students. “It is a completely new experience for us – acknowledges Father Cibaka Cikongo. We started working with the Catholic educational center La Robertannaand since it deals with 153 families with children, we purchased small transistor radios to distribute to each of these families. ” And so Radio Ditunga offers two hours of lessons a day thanks to the teachers who go to its headquarters. And it is not only in the Democratic Republic of the Congo that radio has proven to be an essential tool. To sensitize the population about the measures taken against the coronavirus epidemic, but also to ensure pastoral services, Radio Sol Mansi, in Guinea-Bissau, transmits more catechesis and moments of prayer.
Ambassadors of hope
“Right now our mission is to act as ambassadors of hope for a society that fears the pandemic – says Sister Alessandra Bonfanti, deputy director of Portuguese radio -. We must continue to nourish the faith in hope, the hope that the world will return to normal if everyone does his part. ” Aid to the Church in Need supports several radio stations in Africa. Over the past five years, aid has been provided, as well as in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Guinea Bissau, in Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda, Central African Republic, Tanzania, Togo and Zambia. 35 projects were funded for the acquisition of technical equipment and for the production of new programs.

In other radio news, Italians pay more importance to radio. The lesson of DJ Stefano Venneri at the Balbo institute of Casale Monferrato in Italy was of great interest . Sent to talk about his radio experiences, the presenter spoke about the value of radio in all moments of life. Venneri illustrated the constant presence of Radio Gold in all the major events involving the area. But radio, added the speaker, is also entertainment and above all music, despite the epochal change of the media.
To arouse the curiosity of the students, Venneri is said to be the holder of the title of being the announcer with the most hours of live radio broadcasting, thanks to his robust preparation and years of experience. Of course, there was no lack of questions about his role as speaker of Torino Calcio, an assignment that made Venneri famous throughout Italy.

Radio had become a medium of information before the advent of television. Last week, the 13th of February was set to be World Radio Day.
By the twentieth century, two male Serbian-American scientists, Nikola Tesla and Italian physicist, Guglielmo Marconi, were face to face in the race to create radio. Until now it was not known who the inventor of the radio must have been.
After emigrating to the United States in 1884, Tesla discovered the induction coil, an important device for sending and receiving radio waves and a US Patent Office. But in 1895, fire destroyed Tesla’s laboratory as he prepared to send a radio signal about 50 miles (80 kilometers) to West Point, New York.
Meanwhile, Marconi had conducted his own experiments and in 1896. He sent and received Morse code-based radio signals at distances spanning nearly 4 miles (6 kilometers) in England, as reported by How Stuff Work , Thursday (02/13/2020) .
In the same year, he submitted an application, and was given the world’s first patent in the field of wireless telegraphy in the United Kingdom.
In some other radio news, the student radio in Oslo is looking for a new boss for a young, fun and creative work environment. If you are interested you must be quick with the application.
Radio Nova, the Student Radio in Oslo, is seeking a new general manager in a 100% position, with overall responsibility for finances and organizational operations, and to facilitate voluntary radio production, according to a job advertisement.
The CEO reports to the Board, and is responsible for implementing adopted strategies, contact with relevant organizations and financial management. Together with the responsible editor, the general manager ensures good framework conditions for the volunteers, so that the best possible radio is made.
The position is advertised as a three-year target with the possibility of an extension. The working hours are primarily daytime, but some evening and weekend work must be expected. The editorial offices are at Chateau Neuf – Det Norske Studentersamfund, at Majorstua in Oslo.
In addition to experience with finance, we want a person with experience from management and preferably experience from voluntary organizational work. In addition to administrative competence, the applicant must have the ability to motivate employees and create cohesion in the channel, the announcement states.
The deadline for applications is 16 February.
THE POSITION AD YOU FIND HERE
Radio Nova, the Student Radio in Oslo, is Norway’s oldest and largest student radio, and was started in 1982 as a successor to the Oslo Students Radio Club (OSRC), which had worked with radio technology since the 1950s.
The channel is non-commercial, and broadcasts 24 hours a day at DAB + in Oslo and Akershus, as well as on www.radionova.no.
The business is mainly based on the efforts of about 200 volunteer staff, but also has an employee general manager and four paid staff.
In addition to being a radio for the metropolitan area’s 70,000 students, Radio Nova is also an important cultural and local radio in the Oslo area.
In other news, radio broadcaster starts campaign for homeless people – thousands of listeners join in straightforwardly in Germany. Berlin – The public radio station Fritz has now started a sensational campaign. The station that can be heard in Berlin and Brandenburg and that is aimed at urban and young listeners with independent, electro, hip-hop and heavy metal has now collected for underpants. At the end of January the radio station started the fundraising campaign “10,000 knickers for Berlin”.
The broadcaster wanted to collect 10,000 underpants, briefs and boxer shorts within three weeks . This donation marathon had a charitable background. Homeless people in the German capital should benefit from the collection. Around 700,000 people are said to be homeless in Berlin.
However, no worn undies were collected from the used clothing collection, but rather enough money to buy 10,000 underpants and distribute them to the homeless. The campaign, which was started and promoted by the radio station, ran (and is still running) via the online platform betterplace.org . On February 3 (as of 4.45 p.m.), the donation goal of 60,000 euros had already been exceeded! A whopping 62,170 have already come together – that’s enough money to buy more than the 10,000 hoped-for undies for homeless people in Berlin .
The listeners of Radio Fritz praise the action of its transmitter: “A piece of dignity! Clean underwear is so important! ”Wrote one on the net. “A thing that hardly anyone thinks about, but is still very important,” agrees another.
“So you can see again that everything is not always a matter of course in affluent society and that we overlook so much in everyday life,” commented another. “Many homeless people do not have the beneficial normality of taking fresh underpants out of the closet every day,” said another Radio Fritz fan.
Some radio listeners complain: “Why 6 euros per pair?”
But as always there were listeners who had something to complain about. “Don’t you think the price is pretty high?” A listener questioned the bill. “The main thing is fair trade cotton for 6 euros! In certain shops you can get three underpants for 5 euros. That would have been a bit more sensible, ”said another. But a listener replied sarcastically on Instagram: “Exactly because homeless people do not need quality, they can also use the cheap products sewn by children that break after 3-6 weeks.”
In any case, the radio station thanked for the support. Radio Fritz posted on Instagram: “You are the best! We are totally touched by your participation! And beyond the Schlüppies we are grateful that you shared your thoughts with us! “
The CinemaRaven production house discovered the most used sound effect in cinema and edited a demonstration video
The film production company CinemaRaven of Denver (Colorado) recently released a super cut composed of numerous movie trailers in which the same sound effect is used : that atonal descending scale with a synthetic sound that we have already heard in almost any film science fiction of 2016.
In the introduction to the video, CinemaRaven specifies that the trailers pasted in the video The Most Overused Sound Effect in Movie Trailers (2017 film trailers cut together) are only twenty, but that the list of trailers in which the abused special effect is present is very longer.

Genelec is announcing three new products in its series The Ones , high-end of the well-known manufacturer that seeks to optimize the monitoring process from the integration of advanced calibration and compensation systems according to the room. They are two new monitors and a subwoofer, the latter so far nonexistent in the series, which now includes the renewed classic 8351 that receives an update with more compact size and better performance in the new 8351B , announced next to the new model 8361A , now the largest of the house, and finally the adaptive subwoofer W371A that wants to change the game within the company.
The Ones series has its own concept of Genelec that seeks to implement a design of three-way monitors that converge under a single signal routing point , which favors the search for signal neutrality, listening in reduced or field environments nearby, or high precision work, calibration, among others.
The 8351B expands existing technology in its predecessor to offer higher SPL (113dB), additional equalizers for room compensation, and improved response in high frequency filtering. It operates in a frequency range of 32Hz and 43kHz, with a 250-watt woofer, a mid-range of 150 watts and a tweeter of 150.
For its part, the 8361A model arrive to considerably expand the possibilities of the series, with woofer it is 500 watts, the average range of 150 and the tweeter of 150. It offers a frequency range of 30Hz to 43kHz and has the largest range dynamic, SPL of 118dB.
The W371A is a subwoofer with front and rear cones and the GLM signal configuration and calibration system, under a design specially designed to integrate with the Ones series monitors. 120 SPL, frequency range from 23Hz to 500Hz and a design with a height of just over a meter high.
Genelec The Ones calibration
As they comment in Genelec, it is not simply a complementary speaker for bass frequencies, but a revolutionary design within what has been achieved so far in systems with dedicated subwoofer, achieving great flexibility to control the propagation of low frequencies, the integration with the monitors of the series and even the control of frequencies that normally do not correspond to a subwoofer, which is usually between 85 and 150Hz at most, to lower between 18 and 25Hz. In the case of W371A we speak of a double cone with a capacity of a considerable medium range that exceeds 400Hz.
The subwoofer has three modes of operation that include flat and neutral as well as configurations for different sub location points in the monitoring room. Everything is calibrated from the dedicated software taking into account both the position of the listener and the monitor in space.
The new models of The Ones series will be available this year from the main distributors of the firm. The price is € 4140 for an individual 8351B, € 4920 for the 8361A and € 9120 for the W371A.

On Thursday 4 July, Netflix will be streaming the third season of ‘ Stranger Things ‘, one of his most successful TV series and, consequently, one of the most awaited. The good news, for those who loved the adventures set in Hawkins and the Upside Down, is that the critics reviewed it more than positively. The time has therefore come to prepare ourselves for the vision, summarizing what is worth knowing, but without making spoilers.
Stranger Things, summary of previous seasons
Brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, creators of the TV series and shorwunner of the first two seasons, also return to the third and continue to tell what moves between the streets and houses of the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, and what is hiding below the surface, in a disturbing world populated by monsters.
At the center of the new adventures, set during the summer of 1985, we find the protagonists of all time, who in the meantime have grown up, strengthened the bonds of friendship, weaved new ones and, in some cases, started a relationship loving. All of them will be forced to come to terms with the fact that “evil never ends, evolves” (as stated in the official synopsis).
On the adult front, Winona Ryder (who plays the mother of two of the young protagonists) and David Harbor (the head of the local police department) return.
The kids have once again the faces of Millie Bobby Brown (plays Eleven / Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Noah Schnapp (Will) and Sadie Sink (Max).
The older ones are Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), Joe Keery (Steve) and Dacre Montgomery (Billy).
Among the new entries we highlight Priah Ferguson (Erica, Lucas’s little sister) and Maya Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke and whose character is described as “an alternative girl”.
The Stranger Things 3 trailer
HOW IS THE SEASON 3, THE REVIEWS
The criticism welcomed ‘Stranger Things 3’ quite well: on metacritic the average rating is 71/100. A first aspect that is worth underlining is the difference compared to the second season: in general the third was judged to be superior, but also lighter and more enjoyable, and characterized by a more than satisfactory ending.
A further thing that is important to emphasize is that season 3 adds relatively little to the already established narrative universe: some have considered this a defect, because they would have liked the Hawkins / Sottosopra relationship to be expanded in new ways. Others have appreciated that the Duffer brothers have not wanted to exaggerate, risking to heal.
SEASON 4 AND 5?
Missing official confirmations, but Matt and Ross Duffer have previously stated that ‘Stranger Things’ will end after the fourth or fifth season. They will probably be more precise in a while.
HOW TO SEE THE TV SERIES
The third season of ‘Stranger Things’ consists of eight episodes with a duration ranging between 40 and 60 minutes and will be published online July 4, leaving the freedom to choose how and when to watch them. Netflix suggests that viewers are subscribers at least fourteen years old.

The music in the stories of Instagram has the potential to be a new and powerful channel of discovery for songs and artists, although for now it is not a real streaming service to play the songs.
Instagram added that the “Music in Stories” function will be available in some “selected” countries starting today, with a global launch scheduled for “the short future”. The Instagram spokesperson said the service will be launched in Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.
For Instagram, today’s launch is the first result of Facebook’s licensing offerings, including those with Universal Music in December 2017, Sony Music in January 2018 and Warner Music in March 2018, as well as with the independent companies Merlin, Beggars Group, PIAS and InGrooves. These agreements concerned the use of music in clips uploaded by users on Facebook , but also on Instagram, Facebook Messenger and Oculus VR.

Producers these days have also found greener pastures in providing audio and sound design for game development. Retro Revolution: here comes the second game from the POCO Game Developer Academy. POCO, born of Xiaomi , seems to be following a particularly rich line of contents. After holding the bench with Xiaomi Pocophone F1 , the best buy for quality price of 2018, the company extended its range of action in the tech field and did it with the Game Development Academy .
The game development academy presented its second title: Retro Revolution which follows Fantasy Glider , the first game produced.
While Fantasy Glider is a simple tap game, there is still no particular information on Retro Revolution, but one thing we can imagine: the game will stimulate the imagination of 8-bit nostalgics. POCO’s initiative in this sense is commendable: in fact, the company has worked to bring together a team of developers who will be cited personally when the game is launched. Retro Revolution will be available soon on Google Play and Mi Apps.
Very dramatic, cinematic, you can use this for those serious toned productions or as a parody for a spot, get the music track here.
10 Places to Get Royalty Free Music
Let’s face it, it’s really annoying to have a great video project, but to know to have to tribulate to look for some original and beautiful royalty free music that does not violate any copyright law , especially knowing that most of the time you’ll have to compromise editing, or be satisfied with a soundtrack not really “bright”.
And so on there to search on Google “Free music sites” or “Where to download royalty free music”, coming very likely to a slew of fictitious results of sites that in reality or are not really free, or have soundtracks that hardly you will insert in your videos.
After all, there is nothing more frustrating than working hard on a movie, only to end up with the usual result, namely that YouTube blocks it because of a copyright infringement on music (we all know very well this feeling).
So do not panic and make a definitive list of the best online platforms where you can find royalty free music perfect for your video content. Here is a list of ten fantastic sites where you can find, download and use royalty-free music for your movies to share online.
If you want to start your search with the right foot, the advice is to start from Incompetech , site created by the composer Kevin MacLeod with many tracks, starting from the horror soundtracks, rock, pop and even the polka, all divided strictly for gender and atmosphere. MacLeod only asks for a credit in the video, a more than legitimate compromise.
Do you know Dan-O, a composer who offers his original songs for free download on DanoSongs.com ? The royalty free music can be used free of charge in your videos, provided that in this case you also provide the link to your website or credit it in your work .
Instead who does not know Moby? Yes, just him, the American musician and singer, author of the famous album Play . Well! If you want to use the music of this well-known artist for free, the right site for you is Moby Gratis . In MobyGratis.com the music is free, provided that your video project is non-profit and not for commercial purposes.
Free Soundtrack Music
FreeSoundtrackMusic.com ! It would be enough to translate the name of this site to understand what it offers . Muscia royalty free to use in movies, YouTube videos, games or other multimedia productions. In this case, to be completely honest, part of the music on the site is paid. However, many of these tracks are free and can be easily downloaded and used in your projects.
ccMixter more than a music site is a community where you can find many tracks that fall under the Creative Commons license . The site allows you to listen to music, create mashups and more. Please note that some Creative Commons licenses may require credit within your video.
Partners in Rhyme
In Partners In Rhyme you will find music loops, sound effects, midi files and much more. Again, watch out for cases where the music on Partners In Rhyme is paid, but having said that, they have a satisfying selection of music loops and complete tracks available for free download.
Even PacDV offers a solution similar to that described previously: that free music and sound effects for all your multimedia works such as video and audio, in exchange for mention and visibility ricollegandoti to their site or listing them in the credits.
Public Domain 4U
