Was Peter Grant Good for Led Zeppelin?

To a large extent but I don't.agree with answers saying "resoundingly so" or similar. On balance, absolutely he was the best manager they could have had but as with everything it's not that simple. Whilst it is very true that Grant contributed to the huge success of the band through his hard stance on contractual negotiations, artistic control etc it is also true that he contributed hugely to the bands downfall. His employment of Cole and Bindon was ill judged and it was they who introduced the unpleasant side of the bands activities that caused their demise: Cole introduced the hard drugs and Bindon the violence that culminated in Oakland. Grant traded on his hard man image but it was actually those two goons who did most of the intimidation. The famous scene in TSRTS film where Grant is ripping into the promoter about pirated posters was all staged - you can tell from Grant' awful acting where he fluffs his lines. Page and Grant remained friends because they shared a tumultuous journey through heroin addiction and came out the other side. It's noticeable that Jones and Plant in particular will rarely be drawn to speak of him and even Page turned to alternative management post Zeppelin. In summary I consider Grant was a double edged sword where Zeppelin was concerned but that's just my opinion as someone who grew up in the time the Zeppelin legend was being formed.

What led to the spread of blood bending? Hama was in jail and Katara banned it.

The fact that Katara banned it.Bloodbending is a high-end, extremely difficult test of waterbending skill... but that doesn't mean it's impossible to figure out. If anything, it's more likely that it's a dirty little secret that the greatest healers have always known: when you make a deep enough connection to a person, if you could just force enough power into them, you might be able to do more than repair.(And I still think the full moon was never needed for many bloodbenders. Hama needed its power boost, but Yakone and his family wouldn't be the only ones to ignore it.)Advanced waterbending would be pushing toward that knowledge again and again, except that the theory could only be proven by the strongest benders - or the most fanatical, in Hama's case. Combined with how horrific bloodbending is, and also how useful it is as a secret weapon, it's likely that most of its discoverers either refused to use it or kept the knowledge for their own use. So the secret pops up again and again, but stays secret.That was what Katara wanted to end. Publically banning that hidden power alerted waterbenders everywhere that it was possible if they were strong enough, but she also warned the rest of the world to be on guard for bloodbending attacks. A fair trade? She thought so.If not, it's no good crying over spilt blood.

What are some grievances that led to the American Revolution?

The colonists wanted representation in direct, or actual form, and not by "virtual representation". In essence, virtual representation was a principle that by mere birth or citizenship in a nation, that person had representation. But this was really a disguise to not allow colonial representatives to have a seat in the Parliament, and was, in fact, a violation of the English Bill of Rights of 1689. The idea of virtual representation is a feudal or monarchistic viewpoint, and one could argue the American Revolution led to the eventual downfall, or at least tremendous reduction, of crown rule over peoples of territories belonging to a particular country.There were many prominent Americans and Brits on both sides of the ocean who were also on both sides of the argument. But the American Revolution movement gathered great momentum through the taxation acts passed by Parliament. The Molasses/Sugar Act was a taxation on many imports/exports that were vital to American trade and commerce. This was soon after followed by the Stamp Act, which was subsequently repealed after even greater opposition by both British and American merchants. But the British Parliament was not done - they then passed the Declaratory Act and that pretty much led to the colonies setting into motion the Declaration of Independence as well as the American Revolution.

Who knows, it is possible the USA might very well be singing 'God Save The Queen' instead of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' today had Parliament just let its colonial citizenry have the rights they were supposedly guaranteed under the UK's own Bill of Rights

Why have bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Cream, etc. ceased to exist even though to this day they enjoy a lot of support and fanfare?

Great question! In those days (probably until the 1990's) a musician started at the bottom and learned their craft, mastered it. John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page were studio musicians who had to learn all the different types of music to earn a living. After paying their dues at the bottom, musicians might make the touring band, then work their way up from there. When they were good enough they would strike out on their own. They had a foundation of entry level, due paying, no money/starving artist times that separated the wannabes from the truly talented.

Today?

If you are seventeen years old, "hot", and can hold a note for more than three seconds you're our new "Idol." Smack an auto-tuner on, make a hit, sell 100,00 records and move on to the next "Idol". They have no foundation, no trudging through the trenches and paying their dues. Overnite success, overnite failure. Some do make it (even a broken clock is right twice a day) but not even 1% last more than 10 years.

Great bands have great talent that was finely tuned over time and hard work. How much hard work, that results in a long career in music, can these kids fit in their first 17 years?

***Before anyone comments....yes, I KNOW, Taylor Swift was that age when she hit it big and is still big. But go find how she got her start, the auditions and thousands of hours spent driving and writing etc... She is the exception. I'm not sayin'.....I'm just sayin'!

Do you believe the overexposure of the media has led to the rise of atheism?

"Overexposure of the media", does this statement mean that the media has exposedFraudulent activities of the churchesThe violence wrought by religious extremistsActivities of the preachers that run against the very beliefs they claim to spreadThen overexposure has resulted in people becoming disillusioned of the religious institutions run by rapists, pedophiles, charlatans, and murderers. Some of them may even have quietly converted out of theism altogether (but are too afraid to admit it).You know the number one reason why people turn away from Christianity and theism in general?When you read the Bible from cover to cover, without apologetics, without nitpicking so that only the verses that support your views are accepted, without biases, there's a very good chance that people simply realize that all of it is just cultist activity.

Combine that with all the evils committed by all religions (but mostly those of Middle Eastern origin), and it's very easy to get disillusioned by all the praises to a cruel, deaf, egotistical god or gods.Thankfully, it's easy for you to convert an atheist (in theory): without referring to your Holy Book, or logical fallacies in general, provide ample, verifiable evidence that your God exists. The harder path: change the cultures within all of your religious denominations, so that extremism is highly unlikely (e.

g. when was the last time you heard of a Buddhist terrorist, or a Shinto bomber?). Until you either allow your God to be measured and scrutinized, or make sure your religion produces less jerks, you'll only see more people turning away from theism of all forms.

Why is a representative democracy effective?

A representative democracy can be effective, but is not necessarily so. It has been found that some of the other important conditions are public political will, separation of powers, strong civil rights protections, effective education, and the existence of strong civil society organizations. None of them have to be perfected in order to be partially effective, but the more the better.

If a population under a representative government wants to destroy it and institute a tyranny instead, they can do so, as in Weimar Germany during the rise of Adolph Hitler. There are countries where effective representative government cannot be created, because some segment of the population is absolutely determined to oppress other segments, either under an existing form of government, or by force of arms in a civil war. If an entire population, or just a controlling majority among one, regards some segment of society as unworthy of rights, they may be able to deny them those rights. An extreme case is slavery followed by Jim Crow in the US.Winston Churchill said that democracy is the worst system of government known to man, except, that is, for all of the others that have been tried from time to time.Representative government works to the extent that its voters are informed and show good will toward governing themselves, and choosing effective representatives rather than demagogues; that rascals getting in to pervert the functioning of government have a good chance of being discovered and turned out of office, or even prosecuted; and that citizens cannot be dissuaded by illegitimate acts of their government from demanding better government as frequently as possible.

What are some counterintuitive things that were done by ultra-wealthy people that led to their wealth?

What are some counterintuitive things that were done by ultra-wealthy people that led to their wealth?Almost everything that can make one wealthy is counterintuitive to some people, as well as often difficult to do and unpleasant. Some examples:Dropping out of college to start their own company (Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, etc.)Practicing extreme thrift and investing all of the money they saved (John D. Rockefeller, all the people in The Millionaire Next Door, etc.)Convincing other people to risk their money to invest in your idea; this doesnt sound counterintuitive, but how many people do you know who have actually tried to do this? (Almost every ultra-wealthy person ever)Being a leader; this goes against most peoples instincts (Again, almost every wealthy person ever)Related to the above, joining or founding a small enterprise in a rapidly growing sector of the economy, rather than a big, established firm (Examples abound)Developing unique and difficult to acquire skills that are increasing in value, which will make you a valuable co-founder to one of the people in the above bullet points.In short, its not super-complicated or even that counter-intuitive.

We have lots of examples of people who have become ultra-wealthy. The problem is that these methods are not a guarantee of success, and they require a great deal of work and willingness to take risks with ones time and money.Most people wont do that

The New Technology of OLED 5g TV Will Be a Turning Year for the Color TV Market in 2020
As the only truly mass-produced product in the next generation display technology roadmap, OLED is ushering in a "highlight moment" - although the sales growth in 2019 is limited, the joining of Huawei and Xiaomi is shaping a new image of "OLED".The killer mace of Internet brands?Recently, South Korea reported that LG display will supply OLED panels to Huawei, and the two companies are negotiating the supply. It is reported that this will be an emerging "TV" with 5g function.Lenovo thinks that the 5g package of the three traditional telecom operators has been officially launched in China; The fourth 5g license has Zhao Jingchun, chairman of China Radio and television. At the recently held world 5g conference, it was revealed that China Radio and television will promote 5g business for individuals next year. Huawei's smart screen series products will receive a "completely different product form upgrade" in 2020, which is a high probability event.It is also reported that emerging TV manufacturers Vizio and Xiaomi plan to use OLED panels next year to enter the OLED TV market. It is even reported that Xiaomi has signed a supply agreement with LGD for OLED display panels next year.If the radio and television 5g network is commercial, a batch of 5g TVs must be listed before. This is a "great opportunity" for communication enterprises and Internet enterprises to enter the color TV market. Industry experts believe that not only mobile phone companies that have "news" at present, but also other mainstream mobile phone manufacturers may launch 5g TV next year.In this context, OLED products with continuous tight supply of display panels will be particularly popular: just as OLED used to be synonymous with high-end in the mobile phone market. 5g color TV market, this scene may accelerate. In particular, considering that the new capacity of OLED panel supply of LGD in 2020 is concentrated on the 8.5 generation line in Guangzhou, there is no reason for domestic brands not to "get the month first".Therefore, 5g OLED, as the killer mace of the color TV industry in 2020, especially the mobile communication and Internet brands, has a sufficient "value foundation".Reshape the value chain of color TV, new brand new technologyAt present, the pattern of the domestic color TV industry, in addition to Xiaomi's great success in market share and sales scale by relying on low price and high quality, the traditional disk is still not much different from that 10 years ago."Among more than 10 innovative color TV brands, only Xiaomi is still active in the front line!" this is a true portrayal of Internet color TV entrepreneurs in the past few years. In this regard, industry experts believe that this is mainly because the "new brand" has no "substantive technological breakthrough" except "image, price and more dependence on e-commerce"—— The old routine of price war has also brought financial pressure under huge losses.The biggest feature of 5g OLED combination is the "hardware technology" which is very different from the traditional mainstream LCD TV.Wu Zhanghao, vice president of LG display and Minister of TV business, predicts that the sales of OLED TVs in China will reach 300000 400000 units in 2019, and the sales of OLED TVs in China is expected to reach more than 1 million units in 2020 - this product with short supply and growth is a good helper for the new brand to "create unique" technology competition value.On the other hand, 5g TV technology is bound to create a new concept of "cognition" between traditional TV brands and mobile phone and other communication enterprises. As a global leader in 5g technology, Huawei obviously has outstanding advantages in all aspects, especially in the fields of 5g signal processing antenna, chip, codec and so on. Industry insiders believe that the technical core capabilities of 5g TV and Huawei smart screen will be improved across dimensions."The new round of communication brand TV is very different from the previous Internet concept brand: because this round of new brand entry has 5g, OLED, fan aiot ecology and more hard core content."The battle for high-quality resources begins. Should the color TV industry changeFacing the upcoming 5g OLED color TV war in 2020, what is the biggest variable? The answer is the battle for upstream resources.On the one hand, the supply of OLED TV panels is always insufficient, which greatly limits the improvement of OLED market sales. For example, the data show that in the third quarter of this year, Samsung Electronics sold 1.16 million QLD TVs worldwide, a year-on-year increase of 520000 and a month on month increase of about 70000. Similarly, as a high-end TV, LG OLED TV sold 1.06 million units in the first three quarters, an increase of only 1%.On the other hand, the supply of 5g related chips and other products is also in the "initial stage". Unlike 4G new products and system products, high, middle and low-end gears are fully supplied. In 2019, the layout of many mobile phone brands on 5g mobile phones actually received the restriction that the chip is not in place. For example, apple is a typical example.Therefore, in the expectation of tight supply, Huawei Xiaomi seizes the new technology of OLED 5g TV, which has the effect of "dimensionality reduction and attack on traditional brands". Industry experts believe that 2020 will be an extraordinary "turning year" for the color TV market!
