Grammy nominee, Boston music scene hero and Hendrix interpreter par excellence, Jon Butcher and his band the Jon Butcher Axis bring the party back to the Cabot Theatre for their only area show this summer.

The event will feature presentations from Marissa Drossos, PYD's Young Entrepreneurs Project Director, and Richard Curtis, Vice President of Workforce Development and Talent Acquisition at State Street Corporation. The Need (Stats from ODEP) Neither disability policies designed to ensure employment of people with disabilities nor policies aimed at gender equity in employment have recognized the specific employment barriers experienced by women with disabilities. The inequities are significant: Men with disabilities are more likely to be employed and have full-time jobs, and men with disabilities are almost twice as likely to have jobs than women with disabilities; Women with disabilities are also significantly poorer than men with disabilities, due partly to the fact they are more likely to be unemployed, and also that when they do work, they receive considerably lower wages than men with disabilities

Raising healthy, competent eaters is one of the most important parenting jobs. Yet, it’s nearly impossible to find evidence-based information on how to raise healthier eaters. In fact, the common strategies parents and caregivers are told to use in order to encourage healthy eating actually backfire and create pickier eaters! Such strategies include, but aren’t limited to: no thank you bites, requiring dinner before dessert and using sweets as a reward for good behavior. In this workshop, you’ll learn basic evidence-based principles of feeding your children that will set them up for success at the meal table. We'll touch on key strategies to promote competent eating, how to handle common situations such as food refusals and children’s food demands and the keys to avoiding the stress of short order cooking and feeding a picky eater. Ideal for parents or caregivers of children ages 5– 18 months. Taught by Danielle Shea Tan, Certified Health Coach, and MS Nutrition and Integrative Health. Danielle’s focus areas include holistic nutrition, prenatal nutrition, family nutrition, food allergies and special diets, gut health and more. Find her at www.healthymamas.com. *Dial-in information sent upon completing your registration. Not sure if you can make the teleclass? Don’t worry!

Please join HDI New England for our local chapter meeting on Thursday, June 11th, at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Agenda: 5:30pm-6:45pm Registration, Networking, & Dinner 6:45pm-7:00pm Chapter Updates 7:00pm-8:00pm Presentation The Human side of Change Management presented by Mary Therese Durr, Boston College An approach to transitioning individuals, teams, and organizations to a desired future state. Instinctually we understand that change is difficult. Even the most adventurous among us find change difficult when change is forced on them. Understanding the human side of change; the moving from what we know to a new reality takes time, may require re-identification of oneself, and is unique to the individual. Based on William Bridges’ Transition Model we will explore the three stages of transition. We will identify where we and those we manage are in the three stages. And we will consider ways to guide ourselves and others through transitions by managing, leading, and supporting. If time allows we will break into groups to manage transitions of a real example of change. Mary Therese Durr is the Director of Computing Support and Information Technology Service Management at Boston College. Mary entered the technology field over twenty-five years ago as a computer programmer. She has moved from software development to computer lab management to networking to systems management and lastly to directing those who do all the real work. Her specialty is discovering people’s strengths. Mary has her Master's in Education, Research, Measurement, and Evaluation at the Boston College Lynch School of Education.

As part of "The Longest Day" - an annual event held by the Alzheimer's Organization - we are organizing the first ever #ENDALZ Hackathon, hosted by Hult International Business School. We'll be working hard to create tech-driven solutions solutions in Alzheimer's care, while raising funds and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association! Whether you are a developer, designer, business development guru or marketing expert, we want you to participate. There has never been an event quite like this one, and we can't wait to get started! Today, the healthcare tech market is booming and the number of individuals impacted by Alzheimer's is skyrocketing. Here's a snapshot of the problem... and the opportunity for healthcare tech: In the United States alone, there are 5 million Americans with Alzheimer's and over 15 million caregivers. Without effective treatments, those numbers are expected to grow to 17 million and 45 million by 2050, respectively. Globally, there are already over 44 million people living with Alzheimer's. By 2050, the number could be as high as 136 million. The global healthcare IT market is projected to hit $66 billion by 2020. Today, it accounts for roughly 20% of GDP in the United States. At the #ENDALZ Hackathon, we'll be working towards solutions in care and support for individuals living with the disease and their caregivers. Alzheimer's speakers include: Joe Petitti Former Senior VP at Putnam Investments Age 48, living with early onset Alzheimer's Frank S.P. Yacino Former Engineer Caregiver for wife for 21 years A.J. Plummer Director of Memory Care Services The Residences at Wingate Tech speakers include: Nick Dougherty Founder and CEO, VerbalCare Dave Gandy Found and CEO, Font Awesome RSVP on this page, then register your team here for $20 per person. Once you have your personal page, the suggested donation is $100 per teammate-- Give it or raise it! If you feel more generous than that, you can certainly go above and beyond our suggested donation. Our goal is to support this great organization, come up with innovative tech solutions to improve the lives of those living with Alzheimer's disease, and raise as much money as we can to #ENDALZ. All proceeds go to the Alzheimer's Association to support Alzheimer's care, advocacy, and research. Check out some fundraising ideas here to get started! ****Depending on the outcomes of the #ENDALZ Hackathon, participants may have the opportunity to collaborate with the Alzheimer's Association and venture capitalists on product development.**** Stay up-to-date in our Facebook Group and hear what's going on with other teams.

Compiled between 1967 and 1968, the SMS series was one of several important experimental ventures that sought to destabilize the boundary between traditional media, while also making work by the day's leading artists accessible to those outside of the collector class. Through the generous gift of Nancy Gray Sherrill '54, the Davis holds the complete portfolio, which includes work by Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Kosuth and Roy Lichtenstein alongside music by La Monte Young and Terry Riley. This installation focuses on works of experimental poetry and literature in the portfolio.
Amidst the social and political turbulence of 1968, William Copley, an American surrealist painter and art dealer, created an inventive periodical entitled S.M.S., which informally stood for “Shit Must Stop.” Copley was inspired by the fluxus movement, which encouraged the blending of all aspects of art and life. S.M.S. embodied this philosophy. Each issue was comprised of diverse art pieces, created or adapted by individual artists for the periodical. The artwork ranged from dada to pop art and took many forms of expression, including photography, audio, drawings, and writing. Beginning in February, a new issue was published bimonthly and sent to subscribers throughout 1968. The periodical lasted for a single year.
SMS is an important piece of the history of modern art. First, it removed all boundaries between the mediums. Everything, from poetry to performance to traditional printmaking, received equal treatment. This principle of equality carried over to money matters: every contributor, no matter how illustrious, received a flat $100 for his or her work. Moreover, SMS bypassed the hierarchical labyrinth of museums and established galleries. Portfolios were sent directly to subscribers on the faith that an audience put in immediate contact with art would have a direct and therefore powerful response.
Through the generous gift of Nancy Gray Sherrill, Class of '54, the Davis Museum holds a complete set of the portfolios. This exhibition showcases a selection of interactive work by artists including Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Kosuth and Roy Lichtenstein alongside music by La Monte Young and Terry Riley.
Curated by Michael Maizels, Andrew W. Mellon New Media Curator/Lecturer.
