Google Mexico Jobs

James asks…

Is there any place on Earth that hasn’t been discovered yet?

Have we mapped 100% of the Earths surface? With 21st century technology like Google Earth I can see my house and my backyard, I can explore desert and polar regions, so are there any surface areas that have not been mapped by satellite photography? If we have reached 100% then what year or decade did that happen?

Tijuana answers:

We have seen 100% of the earth FROM THE AIR but there are HUGE FREAKING CHUNKS of the planet that man has NEVER STEPPED FOOT or where man has lived yet civilization was lost… Like in Mexico… They still haven’t found all the Mayan and Aztec pyramids!!

The nut-job environmentalists want you to believe that not only has man over run every single square inch of the earth but that there are no forests left… (I’ve heard some statistics that say that there is less then 25% of the worlds forests left…) and that is total bullshit.

The United States alone has more undisturbed forests then THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA!

Most of Alaska has never been ‘discovered’ by man… A majority of Canada has not been “Discovered” by man…

There are thousands of islands in the ocean that have never been visited by man…

For a place to have been “Discovered” you need to actually GO THERE… NOT just see it in a pic from a satilight.

An aerial view can only tell you that “There are trees here and sand there…” but they can’t tell you about the animals or details about the environment…

You can only discover that on foot… And humans have a LONG way to go to actually GO everywhere on this great big blue ball of ours!

Susan asks…

Is Clarinet Performance a good option for me?

Im currently a Sophomore and I have taken place in the New Mexico All states top band for 2 years and also Southwest Honor Band, received Honors on my freshman solo as well as straight I’s on ensembles.

Tijuana answers:

I will copy here an answer from a previous question:

Well, let’s start with this. Search this on Google: “Clarinet Jobs” (without quotation marks). You should find a Facebook group with a listing of Jobs available that are known in the *world.* Right now, as I see it, there are only four known positions open (NOTE: *this was two weeks ago*), only one of which is an orchestral position (not sure about the Opera Company).

If you search on the Clarinet BBoard (which you can also find through Google), you can ask people the same question. I quote someone who commented on one of my threads:

“It’s damn near impossible to get a decent job in classical music today.” – Ed Palanker, Former Professor of Clarinet of the Peabody Conservatory.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is – I don’t mean to discourage, but the amount of clarinet orchestral positions is seriously lacking. (This is not why I switched my major, FYI.) You will have to be the best of the best and even then, you may not get a job because there is such a small amount of positions out there.

However, if you do decide to enter this realm of orchestral positions, I wish you the best of luck. You will be auditioning against hundreds of people for a position because it is so difficult to get one. Good luck on wherever you decide to go from here.

Here’s another answer that I wrote for another question:

… Clarinet players usually choose one of the two options for majors in college:

1) Music Education
2) Music Performance.

I would highly recommend, if you can, to go for the Music Ed. Major – Performance is extremely competitive. (As hypocritical as I may sound, I also am doing a Mathematics – Actuarial Science major. The main question is, how are you going to make a living if you do Music Performance? It will be hard.) Google the Facebook group “Clarinet Jobs.” There aren’t many positions open (only four positions as I read it right now – this doesn’t include just the U.S.). If you want an orchestral position, you’re going to be going against 120 people, at least, that will be competing for the same position by an audition.

Always have a backup plan – I’m doing a math major along with my clarinet performance major because I’m sure that I probably won’t get a job with the clarinet major, plus I enjoy both (I haven’t been able to choose between them).

To note, I was doing a Clarinet Performance major until the end of last semester, when I switched to Music Theory. I didn’t switch because of the job market; rather, there was an issue going on at the University I was attending. If you have any questions, send me an e-mail.

Charles asks…

How come our news is so America-centric?

I wanna learn about other places in the world, too. And for people to give fair opinions, even if its against what the American government’s stance. I want to learn about life in other places… not just catastrophes, too. Africa isn’t all poor people and aids, there is more to Mexico than illegals and the drug war, etc.
Idk how I feel about The Economist after they manipulated the photo in their “Obama vs. BP” issue.. haha but thanks everyone.

Tijuana answers:

News serves its audience. If magazines, newspapers and broadcasters didn’t, people wouldn’t purchase their publications or tune in. Fortunately, there are many ways to avoid simply getting ‘America-centric’ reporting, certainly publications from the areas you are seeking. Amongst the best is The Economist, a weekly British magazine that does an excellent job of presenting a world view. It is widely available in America’s bigger cities or on the Internet. But you could also read publications from the other places in which you are interested. Google: Newspapers in Africa or Newspapers in Mexico, for example.
