How ‘Sesame Street’ Started a Musical Revolution

Fifty years ago, the television show united children’s education, puppetry, and songs. Pop stars have been singing the Muppets’ tunes ever since. Since its inception in 1969, the public television show has redefined what it means to teach children through TV, with music as its resounding voice. Before “Sesame Street,” it wasn’t even clear that you could do that; once the series began, as a radical experiment that joined educational research and social idealism with the lunacy of puppets and the buoyancy of advertising jingles, it proved that kids are very receptive to a grammar lesson wrapped in a song.

“Sesame Street is one of the earliest examples of a musical I experienced,” said Lin-Manuel Miranda, who grew up adoring “I Love Trash” and called its singer, Oscar the Grouch, “a character so singular that he changes the way you see the world at large.” I learned from ‘Sesame Street’ that music is not only incredibly fun but also an enormously useful narrative and teaching tool,” he added in an email. “On top of that, their songs are the closest thing we have to a shared childhood songbook.” Miranda began composing for “Sesame” not long after his first Tony won in 2008; his friend Bill Sherman, a fellow Tony winner, became the “Sesame” music director the following year. Today, with online viewership in the hundreds of millions, the series still hosts pop superstars Janelle Monáe, Romeo Santos, Ed Sheeran, Sia, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars on the updated streetscape where Nina Simone sang “to be young, gifted and black” in 1972.

Now, as it marks its 50th anniversary — after 4,526 episodes, not to mention specials, movies, albums and more — the legacy of “Sesame” is clear: It impacted the music world as much as it shaped TV history, inspiring countless fans and generations of artists. And the show is still innovating, finding ever more ways to sing out loud. In the late ’60s, when Joan Ganz Cooney, a television producer, and Lloyd Morrisett, a psychologist and philanthropy executive, set out to develop “Sesame Street,” they aimed to build school preparedness and narrow the educational gap between lower- and upper-income children. Each year, outside experts outline pressing academic and social issues; from that, and the input of Dr. Rosemarie Truglio, the show’s senior vice president for curriculum and content, an educational theme for the season is built. Episodes can have individual goals, too, and preschool basics like numbers, letters, and reading-readiness are perennials.

Which 5G phones have launched or are coming in 2019?

5G capable phones are rare right now. There are only a few, and they’re usable in just a few locations around the world. A 5G smartphone is only useful at its fullest potential when connected to a 5G network. So, as this newest mobile network slowly rolls out around the world, 5Gphones will begin to become available for carriers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc.

 

The first 5G networks have now launched in the UK and US.  5G phones have already from Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo, and more. We’ve detailed those below and linked to our other in-depth coverage of those devices.

 

 

By the way, this feature is just for 2019 phones at the moment – we think the iPhone XII (iPhone 12) in 2020 will be Apple’s first 5G phone. In a surprise announcement, Apple has now linked up with Qualcomm to use its 5G modem. On the same day and in a coordinated move, alternative supplier Intel announced it wouldn’t produce 5G smartphone modems after all.

 

 

It has launched in the UK with Vodafone and is also coming to O2 UK and Three UK in due course. Price-wise it’s a little cheaper than many 5G phones, which makes it a great start point if you want to try out super-fast connectivity.

Google Removes Play Music Subscription Gifting, Starting On Android.

While YouTube Music has seen a steady series of updates in recent months, Google Play Music has stagnated ahead of its eventual replacement. In April, Google removed a direct portal for smaller artists to upload songs and is now removing the ability to gift Play Music subscriptions. For the past year or so, Google has rolled out only minor Play Music updates, with version 8.21 for Android this week removing the “Send gift” option. Available under General in settings, it lets you “Give a Google Play Music subscription.”This straightforward gifting includes one- ($9.99), three- ($29.97), or six-month ($59.94) subscriptions. After selecting, you enter the recipient’s email address, “From,” and an optional message. This opens the Play Store’s billing options to confirm, with the other person receiving a redemption code.                                                                                                                                         

Gifting music subscriptions have been around for several years, but Google is now beginning the process of removing it from the Android client. A Google Play Help page on how to “Send Google Play gifts by email” notes. Despite the message, it’s still available on older versions of the Play Music client, while the web app even features the link. Visiting play.google.com/music/gift will also let you gift a subscription, while the ability is still being advertised on a page about Play gift cards.

Ultimately, this is a minor feature deprecation with family plans solving the problem for most users. YouTube Music does not have a similar capability, but there are more important things that Google’s primary streaming service has to first add from Play Music, including the cloud library and playlist transfer.

Do You Know The 6 Best Canon Lenses For Your DSLR Camera

Canon’s kit lenses are high, but at some point, you need to step out of your comfort zone and get yourself some nice glass. Those looking for the best Canon lenses have come to the right place. We have put together a list of our favorite lenses coming from the photography giant. We’ve included lenses from different price ranges and shooting styles.                                                                                   
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens:
Your first investment after the camera should be a 50mm f/1.8. I seriously shoot about 70% of all my photos with one, and Canon’s model goes for a mere $125. The 50mm focal length is excellent for general purpose photography, and image quality in such prime lenses is superb. The wide aperture also makes for fantastic bokeh (blurry background). You won’t regret spending the $125 for one second.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens:
Those who don’t want to be carrying around a bunch of lenses will find comfort in the Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens. The 18-200mm focal length offers enough versatility that this could very well be the only lens you will ever need. It lacks a wide aperture, but you could still achieve great results with enough light.                                                                                                                                                 
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens:
Every photographer should have an excellent macro lens in his bag, and the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM is a great option. A 12-inch focusing distance and 10mm focal length will let you get up close and personal with any subject. Meanwhile, an f/2.8 aperture can make plenty of light into the sensor and keep a shallow depth of field.                                                                                                                       
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens:
In the photography scene, the “holy trinity” is a trio of the best lenses a photographer can get. These can take care of most focal lengths while outputting maximum quality. The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens is the first one, and the following two lenses complete the “trinity.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L is III USM Lens:
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L is III USM Lens can zoom in even further while keeping a wide aperture. It is an excellent lens for those who need to shoot subjects from a distance. Sports, nature, and street photographers love it. It comes with a mighty $2,099 price tag.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
Canon EF 16–35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens:
A 16-35mm focal length keeps you covered for capturing wide-angle images. It’s great for landscapes, significant subjects, and crowds. The f/2.8 aperture is also great for letting in light and keeping a tighter control on the depth of field. It’s expensive at $1,999, but it’s worth the price.
