The Shift
with Formula 5
For fans of: Cold Play, Foo Fighters, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin"Music is the temple," states John Shannon, co-front man for transcendental rock band The Shift. Together with co-frontman Nick Cassarino, they resemble a modern day John and Paul of sorts, with each their own distinct approach to songwriting. Shannon's vocals seem the soft whispers of some rogue angel, lovingly feeding secrets of the divine and mysterious into the ears of listeners. Cassarino sings with the soulful, throaty swagger of a seasoned blues man, who's unstated mission is to channel the blood, sweat and tears of being alive. Shannon and Cassarino are also masters of the six-string in their own right, each capable of creating worlds of tangible melodic landscapes or shattering worlds around them like untamed animals. Add to the the mix bassist Benjamin Geis, whose poignant, crystalline bass licks provide a sturdy vibrational foundation; and drummer Matt Lambert, a truly explosive talent and the very definition of "in the pocket," capable of both the smallest, most sophisticated hits and hits so huge one risks the momentary deaf whine of shell shock when standing close to the stage. While The Shift is clearly a rock band first and foremost, they seek to stir awake the long dormant souls of listeners, to rekindle the curiosity and wonder for the unseen universe that exists in and around and beyond this world of dirt and concrete and walls. After all, The Shift is not only a change in how we listen, but how we SEE. The journey begins soon. Are you ready for The Shift? - Mike Longo, Writer and Music Documentarian

Mark Epstein at Harvard Book Store
Mark Epstein at Harvard Book Store



Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - 7:00pm






Harvard Book Store welcomes renowed psychiatrist and author of Thoughts Without a Thinker MARK EPSTEIN for a discussion of his latest book, The Trauma of Everyday Life, new to paperback.

Trauma does not just happen to a few unlucky people; it is the bedrock of our psychology. Death and illness touch us all, but even the everyday sufferings of loneliness and fear are traumatic. In The Trauma of Everyday Life Mark Epstein uncovers the transformational potential of trauma, revealing how it can be used for the mind’s own development.

Western psychology teaches that if we understand the cause of trauma, we might move past it while many drawn to Eastern practices see meditation as a means of rising above, or distancing themselves from, their most difficult emotions. Both, Epstein argues, fail to recognize that trauma is an indivisible part of life and can be used as a lever for growth and an ever deeper understanding of change. When we regard trauma with this perspective, understanding that suffering is universal and without logic, our pain connects us to the world on a more fundamental level. The way out of pain is through it.
 
Epstein’s discovery begins in his analysis of the life of Buddha, looking to how the death of his mother informed his path and teachings. The Buddha’s spiritual journey can be read as an expression of primitive agony grounded in childhood trauma. Yet the Buddha’s story is only one of many in The Trauma of Everyday Life. Here, Epstein looks to his own experience, that of his patients, and of the many fellow sojourners and teachers he encounters as a psychiatrist and Buddhist. They are alike only in that they share in trauma, large and small, as all of us do. Epstein finds throughout that trauma, if it doesn’t destroy us, wakes us up to both our minds’ own capacity and to the suffering of others. It makes us more human, caring, and wise. It can be our greatest teacher, our freedom itself, and it is available to all of us.

“Mark Epstein’s book is a rare and remarkable achievement. It fuses deep scholarship with deep tenderness—in the spirit of the greatest Buddhist teachers—to investigate the nature and psychic repercussions of trauma. The fact that Epstein can effortlessly transit between the ancient truths of Buddhism and the most contemporary understanding of trauma is a testament to his agility as a thinker. This is a wise and important book.” Siddhartha Muhkerjee, author of The Emperor of All Maladies

Eat, talk, and celebrate 2 years of SMBNS

Social Media Breakfast North Shore opened its doors on July 31, 2012 with an informal breakfast at the Boardroom Cafe in Beverly. Over the past two years, we rotated about a dozen times in restaurants, businesses, and conference spaces in Amesbury, Beverly, Haverhill, Peabody, and Woburn.

Our next event -- and our 14th -- occurs July 29 at the Century House on Rt. 114 in Peabody. Please bring cash (and an appetite) for breakfast. Bring your business cards and you're welcome to bring product samples to show and/or for people to take away.

Please show up on time -- because the breakfast will start with something new, something we haven't done in our two years together. It's a secret. All you should know is what happens at a social media breakfast lives on in social media.

The hashtag for the event (on Twitter, Facebook, etc.) is #smbns.

Hope to see you there!

Introduction to Data Mining and Predictive Analytics

Introduction to Data Mining and Predictive Analytics with RapidMiner

Tuesday, August 12th and Wednesday, August 13th from 8:30 am to 5 pm

A light breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks will be provided.

Be sure to check out our Intermediate Data Mining and Predictive Analytics course being held in the same location on August 14 and 15. Register for both at the same time to get a special discount.

Class size for this event is limited to 12 students. If the class is sold out and you wish to be added to a waiting list, please contact the event organizer.

This course is a two-day introduction to the foundations of data mining, predicitve analytics, and RapidMiner software. To support a business context for these topics, we will develop a specific business scenario as a through line during the course.  The class follows a learn-do model, allowing students time to focus on the new material as it is explained, then apply that understanding in a lab exercize on their own.

After successfully completing this training, participants will have an understanding of how RapidMiner Studio and RapidMiner Server work and are used. They will be able to create predictive models in the standard data environments found within most analyst positions.

Practical exercises during class prepare the participants to transfer the knowledge gained and apply it to their own data mining problems, solving them more quickly and easily.  Since the class labs are hands-on, performed on the students' own laptops, the students will be taking their actual classwork home with them to jumpstart their application to the real world.

After this course, participants will be able to:

  • perform basic data preparations
  • build initial predictive models
  • evaluate model quality
  • score new data sets


Details

  • Target audience: newcomers, analysts, developers, administrators
  • Previous knowledge: basic knowledge of computer programs and mathematics
  • Methods: lectures, discussions, individual and group work, exercises on realistic data.


Participants may introduce their own work and project specific questions in order to find particular solutions together with the trainer and other participants. The training course addresses beginners and intermediate learners.

Boston PubCrawl
Boston might be known around the country as the home of baseball and some die-hard Red Sox fans. But if it’s one thing that Boston loves, it’s definitely pub crawls! This year’s annual Halloween pub crawl will be no different. Boston’s best bars have all signed up to the official Beantown Halloween pub crawl in order to give every crawler in Boston an epic Halloween experience they’ll cherish for the entire year. While it's tough to organize a pub crawl amongst your friends, we've done all of the work for you. All you need to worry about is your costume, and your stamina, because you'll probably be drinking for hours on end.
 
Rather than opting for the stereotypical Halloween experience in Beantown, we're giving you the option to shake things up and enjoy a little variety. With all the bars and pubs participating this Halloween, there are plenty of choices for you. We’ve enlisted over 10 bars to visit during this magnificent party fest. With bars such as Stadium Bar and Grill, Mija Cantina, and The Times Irish, the Halloween weekend bar crawl is the best option this year. Now's your chance to get your tickets and enjoy the most festive holiday of the year in style!

Must be 21 years old to participate; valid State ID required. Advertised drink specials are available at specific venues, at specific times, are subject to change, and may not be available at every venue. 2 for 1 drinks means you get 2 drinks for the price of 1. Actual drinks offered are at the venue's discretion. Participating venues and advertised times are subject to change. PubCrawls.com promotes safety and urges all participants to drink responsibly. Participants must bring their Print At Home Ticket to the registration venue. No refunds. All sales are final.

Night Lights / Public / Cordelia & the Buffalo / Animal Flag
With members from Mexico, Texas, Japan, California, and Norway, Night Lights brings together an eclectic assortment of indie, rock, and soul influenced sounds to make people dance and feel feelings. The Boston-based band met in 2012 and has since discovered a balance between profound lyrics, hook-heavy melodies, danceable music, and intriguing harmonic progressions. Their songs touch on existentialism and the confrontation of the self, hoping to discover a truth grounded in music, community, and conversation. With warped soundscapes, intricate riffs, melodic bass lines, colorful rhythmic creations, and captivating melodies and other-worldly vocal effects, it all comes together to take you on an unparalleled audio adventure. Animal Flag is the musical project of songwriter Matthew Politoski. Starting in 2011, the band has self-released two full length albums, four EPs, and toured on both East and West coasts. Being based in the Northeast, it has acquired loyal home based followings in Boston and New York with packed and energetic live shows. The band also has a growing fan bases in places like Nashville, Philadelphia, Florida, and Georgia from relentless East Coast touring. In 2013 Animal Flag played at the National Association of Music Merchants convention in Anaheim.
