The upcoming MCR Anniversary

Ursula and Nasrene in last Saturday's meeting come up with the idea of having all MCR host and Station Managers both present and previous to come help celebrate the third year anniversary of MCR's Successful global launch. We're excited about this venture. We hope to have call ins during the recording of the program as a way to connect with the old and new listeners.
Ms. Reyes executive director of MCR Caribbean said it was a great idea. Ms. Reyes has brought two new host to the platform. Its a great way to introduce new host and station managers to the operational matrix of Rattler Publishing, Gemini, and Shunya.
William who is MCR-Studio Manager is compiling the format and time for recording the program.
Ursula who is MCR Project Coordinator is looking at times for recording and advertising.
Can't believe its been three years since that global launch and I'm looking forward to this celebration.

MCR Moving forward with new technologies

Last Saturday Nasrene Muhammad was challenged by Ursula and David on the new direction of Melanated Community Radio, but this week Nasrene came back with an even bolder idea. The new concepts is to allow host to interview direct communication without the use of third party apps. This would be revolutionary and would decrease the connectivity issues occurring with third party apps. The bata testing of this will begin in the autumn of 2019 and an expected lunch date is set for spring of 2020. This will cause a redesign of the MCR Website and different functionalities which Gemini hopes will improve the efficiency of the way  host communicate with guess on programs. It will also better enable Station Managers and Executives to hold meetings with the hassle of third party apps.
This motion stopped David and Ursula in their tracks because they both are attracted to the idea of communication between stations be more efficient as the project expands.
Nasrene did say that more studies will have to be made as she expects to present a complete plan on the Rattler Publishing debut floor in the coming months.
Construction of the new MCR site will be began this summer and hopefully launch in autumn. She did say somethings will have to be eliminated from the site but this will allow for better functionality of the overall site. "We'll have the ability to build on this technology with not only advance internal and external securities but station efficiencies from host interviews to staff meeting with both audio and video capabilities." was her final words as the meeting closed.
Nasrene would not go into specific details about the project but has captured David and Ursula's attention. Tammi Herenichi of Gemini did say "developers has been working on the next advance of the MCR project. Secure communication that's exclusive between the MCR studio, Host, Guess, Managers and Excutives would push to the next evolution of MCR"
With those words Tammi is lending Gemini's support in favor of Nasrene and idea of making all things MCR exclusive MCR from star to finish.
Under Rattler Publishing's laws and bylaws of operation Ursula and David must challenge the proposal not to kill it but to reveal the flaws that maybe it's Achilles heel. It's an exciting time here in the Queen City

And the battle continues on the Rattler Publishing Floor

The battle still rages over secure server uploads. Nasrene is adamant about moving MCR into the future with a direct connection to the MCR studio and although her ideas are good David and Ursula are still her biggest opposition.
William invites the idea because it means he want have to search for files in dropbox which according to him is becoming more difficult to access and sometimes he can't transfer files due to the fact that the studio has gotten several invites in the past to share a box which means box sharing the host's box is a violation of studio policy and the studio can not pull files from a shared outside portal its security portal.
Stephen is in favor but is hesitant to give a vote until 98% of the possibilities of disasters are addressed and possible solutions are entertained.
David and Ursula are still objecting to the idea. David sited MCR Executives must push policy and the history of that dictates impending doom due to the fact its not stable ground. 'Only a dreamer builds a house because of the view and disregards the quicksand underneath."
But Nasrene again would not go down easy and argued "That's what we are dreamers. We dreamed of a unified melanated nation and have laid a solid foundation and it is unwise not to expand on it."
Ursula again returned with "But given the uncertainty of the climate dreams quickly turn to nightmares and let us not forget the intended sabotage of MCR by a Station Manager with a known Jamaican stream ripper.She also sited in the past how Station Managers, despite several emails about the chain of command of MCR has never followed it and how to keep the project a flout David would answer questions and forward email to their proper place wasting valuable time away from other functions of Rattler Publishing, Gemini and Shunya," and he battle rages on and I predict it will for a while.
The upload system would ease the dropbox tension and the reason Nasrene is pushing so hard is because Adobe is cancelling their website development tool Muse in 2021 which would make William and David both have to write code to create and maintain not only the site, but secure logins and the internal data bases for those applications; which, given the workload of both David and Will might be a step too far unless changes can be worked out regarding email placement and chain of command.  
William brought an ideas to the floor about the upcoming third anniversary of MCR it would be nice if we could get all the executives and host together for a special edition program.
the crew seemed to like the idea but David is on the fence, although he never voiced his objection it the expression on his face was he's not there with the idea yet.
The new an improved global community along with several other MCR applications are still in the development stages
