Flo Takes 'Low' to New Heights
WASHINGTON - Southern rap mogul FLO RIDA received the highest Gold & Platinum certification of any artist in March, according to the Recording Industry Association of America's (RIAA) monthly G&P count. His EP 'Low' sold more than 3 million singles and 1 million ringtones to earn the Atlantic artist Gold, Platinum, and 3x multi-Platinum prestige for his chart-topping hit.
In a close second, two Atlantic artists – English singer-songwriter James Blunt and neo-soul duo Gnarls Barkley – received 2x multi-Platinum prestige for surpassing 2 million downloads of their respective singles ‘You’ re Beautiful’ and ‘Crazy.’
The highest album certification in March went to Amy Winehouse with her Back to Black album on Universal selling more than 2 million copies. While this is the doo-wop soulstress’ first multi-Platinum G&P award, she’s no stranger to recognition. Winehouse achieved back-to-back acclaim for Back to Black at February’s GRAMMY Awards, taking home five honors – the most in one night by a female solo artist, matching records held by Lauryn Hill, Norah Jones, Beyoncé, and Alicia Keys.
A top nod also went to ukulele playing, surf and singing sensation Jack Johnson for his fifth studio album Sleep Through the Static. The record released on Brushfire/Universal Records went both Gold and Platinum only one month after its release. The Hawaiian native’s U.S. tour kicks off this month in his home state and hits summer festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo before heading overseas.
How far they’ve come! Matchbox Twenty has scored some brass since releasing their first album in 1996, selling more that 18 million albums to date and earning their first Gold and Platinum digital single certification for ‘How Far We’ve Come’ on Atlantic in March. Keep em’ coming!
Kudos to power-pop punk band Paramore for earning their first Gold digital single for ‘Misery Business’ off Atlantic. Their 2007 and second studio album RIOT!, which features the single, is also currently certified Gold. Check out the GRAMMY nominated ‘Best New Artist’ group currently on tour with Capitol alternative rockers Jimmy Eat World.
Atlantic hip hop artist Plies earned his first Gold digital single for ‘Hypnotized’ and first Gold and Platinum ringtone certification for ‘Shawty.’ His debut album The Real Testament was certified Gold in February, a ‘real testament’ to Plies’ talent and hard work.
Veteran rocker Paul McCartney earned his 15th Gold album for Memory Almost Full on Concord Records. McCartney’s former band The Beatles has sold a whopping 170 million albums - more albums than any band in G&P history.
In March, the RIAA awarded a total 13 digital singles, 12 albums, and 7 ringtones. All certifications are calculated by Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman. Complete lists of all album, single, mastertone and video awards can also be accessed at www.riaa.com.
Morning, the sun shines high and bright
The test I shall conquer with sure might
Having studied through the night,
Certain victory looks within sight
The very first question makes me feel diaoz
Soon I know I gg liaoz
Every moment I feel more sianz
Might as well get some ZZZ
Afternoon, rain falls fast and hard
My dreams are all in mud
Any hopes were merely a dud
Nothing cheers me, not even beancurd (drink!)
Staring at the falling rain,
it looks back with disdain
For four more days, I will stay sane,
Then its back into a world of pain
Those who have pictures of our class please post!! make our blog more colourful! *sad eyes*
Ahhhh, tmrw's GP essay :/

Are u pple feeling stressed out due to the tons of homework, assignments and tests?
and are u pple feeling tired and suffocated?
This is the reason why: the atmospheric temperature at school is greater than 760mmHg. This is due to the stress exerted on us. As there is stress exerted, the pressure will be higher.Now, let's move on to chem. we have learnt that when pressure increase, temperature decreases. Therefore, it is usual for us to feel "cold" in sch, and that explains the reason why we're buying class jacket!
Hahaha...the above is just for laughing purposes...now we'll have to decide abt the class jacket thingy..LOL~

Beauty of Maths!
1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321
1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10 = 1111111111
9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888
Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry:
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321
Now, take a look at this...
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:
What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%.
What about ACHIEVING 101%?
What equals 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:
12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%
Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!
WORK HARD PEOPLE! =P
