FDA Basics Webinar: Practice the art of sun protection

FDA

Spending time in the sun increases the risk of sunburn, skin cancer, and early skin aging. There are many factors that contribute to a person’s risk for sun-related skin damage.

The United States has the most innovative and influential music culture in the world, but our system for enabling the paid use of music—and ensuring compensation for its creators—lags far behind. The structures that evolved in the previous century to facilitate the lawful exploitation of musical works and sound recordings, while perhaps adequate for the era of discs and tapes, are under significant stress. From a copyright perspective, we are trying to deliver bits and bytes through a Victrola. It is a testament to the irresistible power of music that industry and market participants have done their best to adapt the old methods, including pre-digital government policies, to embrace current technologies and consumer expectations. But the costs of failing to update our outmoded licensing methods are escalating. Even when distributors are perfectly willing to pay licensing fees, they may find it difficult to identify the owners of the music they use. Those seeking to launch new delivery platforms are constrained—and sometimes even defeated—by the complexities and expense of convoluted clearance processes. Perhaps most concerning is that many deeply talented songwriters and developing artists now question whether a career in music is realistic under the current regime.

The New Logic of Hybrid Work in Government

It’s clear that hybrid work is here to stay for many state and local government organizations. But to thrive in this new environment, governments will have to address the elephant in the room: outdated and cumbersome technology. Inadequate technology doesn’t just make it harder to maintain a hybrid office; it creates significant challenges to maintaining a sense of shared culture and belonging – a vital part of managing a distributed workforce.
