My name is Chyna Stephens. I currently live in Richmond, VA and attend VCU. Prior to coming to VCU, I lived in Chesapeake, VA. It is about a 2 hour drive from Richmond and it is full of wannabe southerners. I'm sorry I just don't see Virginia as super southern, but everyone where I'm from tries to act like a cowboy! I lived with my family which consisted of my mother, father, brother, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. I came to VCU with the intention of studying study Computer Science over at the School of Engineering, but changed my major after my second semester of my freshman year. I realized that maybe CS was not for me and that I should try and explore my options elsewhere, that being Information Systems. I've been in IS for 3 years now and I love all the options that are presented to me. I'm learning coding, databases, networking, etc. and it makes me feel better about going into the field of IT, because I will have knowledge about the many bases IT covers. I knew from a young age that I wanted to work with computers. Being a Gen Z, I basically grew up with a phone in my hand at all times. While many believe that is a bad thing, I think it's great. Being technologically advanced at such a young age is, in my opinion, better for the future of the world. Now, there are cases where parents just shove a phone in a kid's face to keep them distracted, not knowing or caring what the child looks at. That is where I think mistakes are made. I'm a huge advocate for educational tech. I'm not sure what I want to do for a career quite yet, but being able to advanace our technology we have now and making it better for the future generation is on my list of goals in life.
I am going to talk about the basic care for an anthurium house plant. The anthurium plant is grown as a houseplant in cooler areas and as a landscaping plant in USDA zones 10 or higher. Proper care for anthurium is easy to do as long as you provide a few key elements for the plant. Keep reading to learn more about care of anthurium plants. Anthurium plants can tolerate all levels of indirect light, but anthuriums growing in low light will have fewer flowers and will grow slower. These plants cannot tolerate direct light however, as this can burn the leaves. They grow best in bright, indirect light. Anthurium care also requires that the soil be free draining but hold some water. If you are growing this plant as a houseplant, a half and half mix of potting soil and orchid soil or perlite will provide the kind of soil anthuriums prefer. Outdoors, plant in a well-drained location. Anthurium plants don't like continually moist soil. Make sure to water your anthurium plant regularly, but don't over water. Only water your anthurium when the soil is dry to the touch. The plant is susceptible to root rot, so too much water can cause the roots to die. If you allow the plant to become too dry in a pot, it will slow down its growth and the rootball will be difficult to re-wet. If the rootball becomes too dry in the pot, soak the pot the anthurium is in for an hour and rehyrdate it. Care of anthurium plants does not require too much fertilizer. The plant only needs to be fertilized with one-quarter strength fertilizer once every three to four months. To get the best blooms, use a fertilizer that has a higher phosphorus number (the middle number).
At the start of their career, Talking Heads were all nervous energy, detached emotion, and subdued minimalism. When they released their last album about 12 years later, the band had recorded everything from art-punk to polyrhythmic worldbeat explorations and simple, melodic guitar pop. Between their first album in 1977 and their last in 1988, Talking Heads became one of the most critically acclaimed bands of the '80s, while mananging several pop hits. While some of their music can seem too self-consciously experimental, clever, and intellectual for its own good, at their best Talking Heads represent everything good about art-school punks. And they were literally art-school punks. Guitarist/vocalist David Byrne, drummer Chris Frantz, and bassist Tina Weymouth met at the Rhode Island School of Design in the early '70s; they decided to move to NY in 1974 to concentrate on making music. The next year, the band won a spot opening for the Ramones at the seminal NY punk club CBGB. In 1976, keyboardist Jerry Harrison, a former member of Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers, was added to the lineup. By 1977, the band has signed to Sire Records and released its first album, Talking Heads: 77. It received a considerable amount of acclaim for its stripped down rock & roll, particularly Byrne's geeky, overly intellectual lyrics and uncomfortable, jerky vocals. For their next album, 1978's More Songs about Buildings and Food, the band worked with producer Brain Eno, recording a set of carefully constructed, arty pop songs, distinguished by extensive experimenting with combined acoustic and electronic instruments, as well as touches of suprisingly credible funk. On their next album, the Eno-produced Fear of Music, Talking Heads began to rely heavily on their rhythm section, adding flourishes of African-styled polyrhythms. This approach came to a full fruition with 1980's Remain in Light, which was again produced by Eno. Talking Heads added several sidemen, including a horn section, leaving them free to explore their dense amalgam of African percussion, funk bass, and keyboards, pop songs, and electronics.
