Singer James Taylor plans 2nd benefit concert in Great Barrington to aid Haiti earthquake relief

By The Associated Press

January 20, 2010, 12:53PM

GREAT BARRINGTON – Singer James Taylor has scheduled a second benefit concert in Massachusetts to aid earthquake relief efforts in Haiti after the first show sold out.

Taylor announced on his Web site that he’ll play a second show on Saturday at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington.

The first show, scheduled for Friday, sold out in 90 minutes Tuesday and raised $300,000 – $150,000 in ticket sales, which was then matched by Taylor and his wife, Kim.

Both shows will benefit Partners in Health, a Boston-based group that brings modern medical care to poor nations and has been working in Haiti for more than 20 years.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, who lives in nearby Lenox, says on his Web site that a second concert “is the least I can do.”

Speaking Peace - An Introduction to Nonviolent Communication

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a way of communicating that strengthens our ability to stay in touch with our humanity and get our needs met, even under difficult circumstances. Instead of habitual responses, our words become conscious responses based on a clear awareness of what we are observing, feeling, and wanting. We are led to express ourselves with honesty and clarity, while paying respectful and empathic attention to others. Check out this brief intro video about NVC:http://youtu.be/a3zSNxE37OM.

Gail Carroll has been offering Nonviolent Communication workshops and trainings in the Boston area since 2006. She is a 2006 graduate of the North American NVC Leadership Program administered by BayNVC.


Gail co-facilitated the NVC Mediate Your Life 2012 East Coast immersion program with John Kinyon and Ike Lasater, and is an alumna of that program.

THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND (with DUKE, KEVIN, BILLY AND RICHARD) and very special guest RUBY ROSE FOX
Wednesday 9/24 - THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND RESIDENCY THE DENNIS BRENNAN BAND with special guest RUBY ROSE FOX $5 advance and $8 at the door 8:30 doors / 9:00 show www.dennisbrennan.com www.rubyrosefoxcom Dennis Brennan and his stellar band of revolving musicians return to rock a fall and winter season of Wednesday nights. As the band did last season, special guests open the second set each week with a short set. Look for some to cover Dennis Brennan songs. Tonight features the return of one of Boston's most dynamic female vocalists - Ruby Rose Fox. Ruby hits the stage at 10:15. Dennis and the band hit at 9:00PM sharp! DENNIS BRENNAN.... To the uninitiated, Brennan could be considered Boston's own Leonard Cohen or Elvis Costello. His songwriting is respected by critics and musicians alike. Not only adept with the pen, Dennis Brennan is a highly accomplished performer and is known for his ability to span musical genres, styles, and era's with ease. His emotive and passionate voice is comfortable tackling classic country and R& B as well classic jazz, rock and blues. But it's really Brennan's originals that have set him apart. The Chicago Sun Times described him as "A rootsy, hard-edged rocker with the barroom soul of the pre-Woodstock Graham Parker and the unsparing insight of a working class poet." It's a fitting description if ever there was one. To the initiated faithful who attend every show, Dennis and his band (which includes guitarists Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, Russell Chudnofsky, Ian Kennedy, and Tony Savarino on any given night along with the rhythm section of Billy Beard and Richard Gates plus keyboardist Jim Gambino) have etched so many indelible magical moments on the local collective conscious that they return each week to see what will happen next. TONIGHTS GUEST: RUBY ROSE FOX Ruby Rose Fox is a songwriter and vocal powerhouse, whose genre bending lounge-pop style blends the best of today's female vocalists with a nostalgic quality that transcends today's musical landscape. ght as well be a collection of lost classics from the Sun Studios archive." More on DENNIS BRENNAN... Music is in his blood and it shows not just in the impressive body of work, but in the workman like attitude he brings to the stage each and every time. It's what inspired J. Geils frontman Peter Wolf to remark, "The biggest challenge for any artist is to sustain and keep growing. Many musicians who stick with it can fall into a trap of becoming parodies of themselves. Dennis has always kept maturing, which is one of the hardest challenges, and that's why I always enjoy checking him out." It's also why band mate Duke Levine says "Dennis is such a strong performer, he never phones it in, and that means everything to a sideman. If Dennis is giving something that is amazing, then you'd better give it, too." Or as guitarist Kevin Barry says, "I have never played with Dennis when he gives less than 100 percent." Dennis Brennan is a local treasure and he continues to impress and evolve. Do not miss your chance to see him... every Wednesday night right in your own back yard. The Dennis Brennan Band performs two sets every Wednesday night starting at 9:00 (8:30 doors). Ticket price may vary from week to week.

Book description

For almost a quarter of a century, Wayne Calloway led Frito-Lay and then PepsiCo to double in revenue and profitability every 5 years, an astonishing story of success that has never been fully told. However, this book is not so much about the numbers that were attained but the systematic leadership approach and the way these results were achieved.

The “Calloway Way” was focused on achieving aggressive results but with extremely high personal integrity. He believed that without growth you couldn’t sustain energy and enthusiasm, and without energy and enthusiasm, you couldn’t attract and retain the best talent. And, the reverse was also true: that without the best talent you couldn’t sustain growth year after year, let alone as Calloway did for decades.

This book has a dual purpose. First, to tell an important, untold success story. The second, to inspire a needed “leadership renaissance” if we are to be competitive in the 21st century. One of the key things you will learn from the “Calloway Way” is that leadership and people matter, even in this machine age.

Learn how to maintain your bicycle! The four classes in this course will cover the following topics: changing a flat tire, introduction to drive systems and rear derailleurs, brake systems overhaul, and introduction to bearings systems and front hub overhaul. Students will be performing the maintenance themselves, on their own bicycles, after a short instruction and demonstration. This is a basic course, and some bicycle types may be outside of the scope of the course. However, the course does reach a level of detail at which students who are intending to expand their knowledge of bicycles find it helpful to do some light note-taking during lecture time.

Class Goals:

Students will come out of this course with the ability to tend to the most common maintenance requirements of their bicycle.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age -- otherwise, all you need is the desire to learn!

Materials Provided:

All relevant tools and equipment will be provided, as well as lubricants and rags etc.

What to Bring:

Your bike, replacement parts if necessary (check with instructor), and clothes you don't mind getting black bike grease on.

Instructor Biography:

 

“Seven” as she’s commonly known, has learned her bicycle maintenance skills through a combination of Broadway Bicycle School training, and spending inordinate amounts of time around SCUL headquarters (a positive bicycle chopper gang). Seven maintains a small fleet of “normal” bicycles, has built and maintained her own modified bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three “how do I…” questions at once. She’s also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.

The Plot in You
with Barrier, Cane Hill

After parting ways with BTE, a solid line-up for the band was formed and work on their debut EP was underway. "Wife Beater" (InVogue Records) was both heavy as well as haunting, where lyrically Tewers gives you a look inside the lives of people he has come into contact with over the years.After signing to Rise Records in 2010, the band has been steadily writing for the first full length, which will be released in early 2011.
