Multiple Sclorsis emergency care needs updated!

This is a chronic disease that doesn't have involve a trip to the emergency room!  In the past two years I have had to suffer through the emergency room proceedure with my husband who has the beginning stages of this disease.   We first have to get a referral from a doctor, so last year we went at 3:00am to the Moded of Meuhedit.  Then we went to the emergency room of Shaare' Tzedek.  This involved a wait of about 5 hours. Then we found out that the neurologist only shows up at 9:00am! So it was a waste to wake up so early in the morning to get there! 
At the emergency room, there are very many cases of people who are in very serious condition, from car accidents, and heart attacks, so the emergency staff don't give a priority to an MS patient.  We didn't leave until 12:00pm! 
At another time, the condition was so bad that my husband had to be hospitalized.  But there was no room in the ward, so he was moved every two days to another department in Hadassah!  I never knew where he would be when I came to visit!

Why does care for MS patients have to be so bad?  I suggest that there be a "walk-in" clinic for those patients who feel like they are getting an attack.  This would be a hospital day center. Where the patients would go to get the medication for the day, 3 times at the proper times, and then send them home at night.  The is why a person with MS is in the hospital to get medication that can't be taken with pills.  So then the person gets the care they need and can go home to sleep at night.

It would be useful to do a survey of MS petients to see if the attacks are seasonal, or what time of the year they hit.  Then, hospital care could be planned accordingly.

Please send this post to everyone you know who might be affected by this disease.  Maybe together we can change how MS. patients are treated!

Yahoogroups poor performance

You may not know this, but Yahoogroups was one of the first social networking avenues.  This was a way that people could send e-mails to a large amount of people without having to collect people's e-mail addresses.  

The groups function used to work well, and as a moderator, I would go to the Group admin center, take a quick look at the messages and approve them.  But lately the system stops up, or I hit approve and nothing happens.  

Yahoogroups is not getting the manpower or support from the Yahoo company.  
As a group owner, over the past 10-15 years, I have tried to keep up these groups as a public service.  It takes a huge amount of time to moderate all the messages to the groups. 

When I do have time, I want the system to work. 

So I have opened up a group on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/LuachYerushalim/  

I am also going to move the groups to a new server: groups.io  

This will happen over the next month as I have time.  

You will get an e-mail giving you instructions about the change.  Most of the time, you don't have to do anything.  If you want, you can put some information in your profile on the site. 

I thank you for all the hard work over the years, and I hope that groups.io will provide the service that we want and deserve. 

Not surprisingly, I have tried to start the process, but Yahoo is not able to do the change. . . 

I am a musican and teacher not a IT person. 

For your listening pleasure: Please like share and Subcribe to my music if you like it.  I composed all the musc, took all the pictures, did all the video Editing

How to promote music on-line

Promotion on-line is the same as promotion off-line, although in most places the two have merged. 
It used to be that you could mention a product or a service on Facebook and your sales would take off.  But now,  it doesn't work like that. 

People are jaded, they aren't looking for the same products anymore.  If there is something that you want to buy, first usually you look in your own community.  Why?  Because when you pay your money, you get the item.  I ordered a set of lenses for the phone way back in November.  Well, it is not February, and I haven't recieved them yet.  I am very disappointed and I have to go back to EBay and try to complain.  Will it help?  I don't know.

So Promotion On-line is about helping people fill their needs.  It has to be a big enough need that when you send the product it comes in a reasonable amount of time.

If you are selling a downloadable item, like a song, it has to be in the right format, and genre.
 Here is a song that I put up on CD Baby to sell.  I am not sure that it is Trance, really, because I write the songs in a Midi format, then put it into mp3. 


I was in a store last night to buy something, and I noticed that the music that was being played was in Spanish.  We are in Israel!!  So I went to the storekeeper and played her one of my songs:    The Road to Tiberius:   
Click on the song to hear it.

I asked her if she could play it in the store, but she said that this song was too calm.

So I came home, finished teaching for the day, and then I wrote a new one: https://soundcloud.com/user-200232744/jump-up

She might like this one better! 

So Promotion is about finding out what the customer needs and giving it to them.  Now the challenge is to find the customers.  One way is by Blogging, putting your link up on other videos on YouTube, putting the links on Yahoogroups,

If you have a song, or a book  that you would like me to review, e-mail me at : Rachael Alice e-mail

Have a great Day!

The music business has changed from the record in the Internet Age!

The music industry has changed from vinal, CD to the Sound Cloud , YouTube age!  If you are a musician and want to get exposure, in the past the record companies chose their artists for free. How do you think that Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen got famous? Their record company put money behind them.  Did Bob Dylan PAY to have his music reviewed?  No sir ree!

But those days are long past.  Nowadays if you want exposure, you have to pay.  Just today while I was browising Twitter, I found two different sites that want the musician to PAY them to put out posts.  One wants a musican to put out from $7 -$12 a song to get promoted to have 1000 or 2000 hits on Sound Cloud.
Another wants $5 so that a song can have three Instagram posts.

I don't know about you, but this seems like the musican now has to pay for all the promotion of their music.

Is it fair?

The rich will always be more popular than the poor.    Here is one of my latest songs. You are the public. What do you think?  Should I pay to get it promoted?

 All the best,

Review of Twilight Doesn't Last Forever! The Jerusalem Business Blog Music Department is now open!

New Music Review!  Jerusalem Business Blog reviews new and upcoming Musical Artists! 

Review of Twilight Doesn't Last Forever!   by Rachael Alice Orbach

This song has a great beat, and the tempo is very fast,  200 bpm, so you could dance your heart out.   The photos all show different shades of twlight.  The beat is very light, keeping the feet dancing. The voices provide a bass as well as accents when the xylophone add crystal clear notes. 
 If you  like Trance music you will like this song too!  It is a mood piece with a great beat!

We will review your music for free! 

You will also be on our mailing list for new music that will be featured on this department on this blog 

Send us a link to your YouTube or SoundCloud clip.

How to earn money on-line!

Many people want to work on-line.  It is easy, you can do it from home, or in an Internet Cafe.

I personally spend most of my time on-line working as an English teacher.  Not everyone can do this though.  You have to have a B.A., be a native speaker in English,  and love to teach.  If you have these qualifications, the school that I work for is looking for new teachers to start soon.  Most hours will be available in March 2018.  Send me your CV or resume to E-mail for English teaching job.

Now for those who are not English teachers, I have found 3 sites that you can write and get paid.

The first and the best is: Mylot.com  This is a link to my profile there: http://www.mylot.com/rachael5760   You can start discussions, post to other people's discussions and they will pay every month on the 15th if you have $5 in your account.  Make sure that your Paypal.com account is up to date.  The money just goes right in.  There are for the most part very nice people on the site.  I have been paid many times.  If you work hard you can get paid every month on this site. I have been on this site for many years and it is really good!

The second site is Bitlanders
 http://www.bitlanders.com/?c=gr234234__739918__0__0  This site is more graphically based, and you can also spend some of your earnings to dress up your avitar.  To earn on this site you need to post blogs, and read blogs.  You can also upload movies from your computer.  I am using this site to advertise my YouTube channel music videos.  I don't know how long it will take to get to payout which is $10.00. 

The third site to earn money on line is https://virily.com/lifecoachjerusalem/  I have been on this site for about 6 months.  Each post that you do has to have a picture or a video attached.  So make sure that you have lots of photos that you can write about.  They will pay out when you get to $10.00   it might take a while to get up to that .  One good thing about this site is that you get paid when someone reads one of your posts and comments on it.  So it is a bit like passive income.  You also get paid when you post so that will help to get up to $10.00. 

Another way to get paid is to post videos to YouTube.  This is my latest video.  I got inspiration at the end of November 2017 and wrote a song and uploaded it to my channel.  Before that I was using my YouTube channel to talk about things in Jerusalem, or unsolicited product reviews, but I think that the music is a better bet for me.  I compose the song with music writing software, and then I use a video editing program to make a video.  I don't really have a schedule for uploading but I write songs every week or so. There is one on my computer that I am in the middle of writing now.

Now, here on YouTube.  you can get paid by advertisement clicks.  But your channel has to have 10,000 views before you are elegible for this.  The videos have to be original work, not using anyone elses pictures or videos or pictures of copywrited material.   Then the advertisers will consent to put ads on the video.  I have not gotten up to 10,000 views on my channel yet, but its getting there.

Another way to get paid on-line is to write a blog.  I have 5 blogs that I keep on different subjects. I use blogger and I have Adsense on the blog.  If someone clicks on an ad on the blog I get paid into my Adsense account.   This is good, but Google will only pay when the amount reaches $100!  I have gotten paid once.  Of course all the posts have to be orginial and not using other's content. 

Along with the Adsense, I also have a Amazon affiliate account.  When I write a lesson plan on my English classes blog I put a link to Amazon if someone wants to buy the book that I am teaching on that post.

So there you have all my on-line earning secrets.  Good Luck!
All the best,
Rachael Alice Orbach
 Don't forget to like, share and subscribe to my YouTube channel!

P.S. Oh, and all these things I also promote on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and VK!

New Music from Israel!

Feel the ocean spray, go into the water and feel the waves wash over you.  Relax and listen to the xylophone, blow into a bottle, play on a woodblock all at the beach!

Take a tour in Jerusalem, the one that most people don't usually see.  Guess where all the places are and I will dedicate the next video to YOU!

The street cat looks out at the view of Jerusalem, in this Trance video.  How do you feel? Can you dance?  I'll play the music and you dance up a storm!

Enjoy my original creations!  I composed them on the computer and they are also performed by MIDI. Then the file is converted to mp3.  Afterwards, I take the audio file, and put into Camtasia video processing, add some effects and here you have the final video!

Enjoy, comment below! 

Here is the playlist of my latest videos!
