Why Some Artistes Don’t Succeed

My Reasons Why Some Artistes Don’t Succeed 
So I’m sitting on my bed this cold Saturday morning and I’m grateful because it’s an environmental sanitation day and it’s raining! Good excuse to remain in bed I must say. My family’s out on a weekend trip, so there’s no dishes to be done or breakfast to be made.
Listening to the rain and The Weeknd’s KissLand album simultaneously, my fingers were itching to do something. I figured I’d write another article after my last compilation on 6 mistakes upcoming artistes make . I read the article again and asked myself; How come artistes who don’t make these mistakes, or have corrected these mistakes still don’t end up being tagged successful artistes?

Small Island appears in Pakistan after 7.7 Magnitude earthquake

This small island appeared off the coast of the port of Gwadar, Pakistan, after a powerful and deadly earthquake jolted the western part of the country on Tuesday.

A Pakistani navy team reached the island by midday Wednesday. To get a better idea of what the island is made of and how permanent it is, scientists will take samples to see whether it is mostly soft mud or rocks and harder material.

The mass of rocks and mud emerged from the Arabian Sea after the 7.7-magnitude quake struck in the remote town of Awaran in Baluchistan province, killing more than 200 people.

Scientists say these types of islands can remain for a long time or eventually subside back into the ocean, depending on their makeup.

The island is about 60 feet high, 250 feet wide and 100 feet long.

'There are stones and mud,' said Pakistani navy geologist Mohammed Danish, warning residents not to try to visit the island. 'Gasses are still emitting.'

Eight-Foot Crocodile Found Under Bed in Africa

Guy Whittall slept through the night at a Humani lodge, where he also works, without any idea what was lying beneath him.  It was only after he got out of bed to eat breakfast and heard the screams of a housekeeper that he saw the crocodile.

“The really disconcerting thing about the whole episode is the fact that I was sitting on the edge of the bed that morning, bare foot and just centimeters away from the croc,” Whittall said, according to New Zimbabwe.

Whittall, 40, said the crocodile, which he estimated weighed 300 pounds, eight-foot in lenght, likely came from the nearby Turgwe River. 

Whittall and a few of his co-workers were able to “rope and haul” the resistant crocodile out from under the bed and back into the wild.

“Catching and securing a croc of any size on land, though, is a fairly straightforward affair and we are experienced in that,” Whittall said.  “The most important thing is to get its snout roped and secured, and then it’s just a matter of restraining it and covering its eyes, to calm it down.”
“I just remember thinking, goodness gracious, that’s one for the books,” he said.  “I’m pretty sure everyone in Humani checks under their bed before going to sleep now anyway.”
