Colorado Blvd. Pasadena). Don’t miss experiencing this poignant tale of longing and loss, revealed when a timeworn journal transports a young girl to a place of enchanting wonders.When songwriter Kurt Rosenberg first visited Scotland, he was immediately drawn to the country’s beauty, later falling in love with Scotland’s music. This appreciation led Kurt to compose his own original Celtic Music and, ultimately, to Kurt’s fortuitous opportunity to play his own original compositions on piano inside Brodick Castle, located on the breathtaking Scottish Isle of Arran.This stunning music video and short film, directed by Dan Schaefer, features a narrative tale based on Kurt’s original song, “Highland Home” – inspired by that memorable visit to historic Brodick Castle some 15 years ago.Highland Home’s cast and crew filmed at scenic spots in Oregon including Rocky Creek State Scenic Viewpoint, at Depoe Bay, and on God’s Thumb. These coastal locations are reminiscent of the beautiful Scottish scenery that Kurt so admires, as the sunset cliffs captured on film elevate Karen Johnson Miller’s soaring vocals.Kurt Rosenberg joins the Pasadena International Film Festival (PIFF) along with more special guests scheduled to join him.For more information, visit highlandhomefilm.com.For more information about Pasadena International Film Festival visit www.pasadenafilmfestival.org.About Kurt RosenbergComposer: Original Song “Highland Home”Executive Producer: Highland Home Music VideoKurt is an entrepreneur, an avid world-traveler, a prolific composer, and self-taught pianist. He joined his family’s olive oil business, the Olive Farm, in 1999, and also ran their Portland-based commercial real estate development business, 300 Partners, for five years before retiring to pursue his number one passion – composing music!Inheriting a love of music from his parents, Kurt taught himself how to play piano at 12-years-old, and started writing songs with lyrics in high school. He also started listening to Celtic Music from Scotland and Ireland. This growing exposure to Celtic Music ended up having a profound influence on Kurt’s compositions and led to the inspiration for writing the melody and lyrics for his ode to Scotland; the original song, “Highland Home.” Kurt is a Member of Clan Scott Scotland, the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA), and is a Patron of Scottish Heritage USA.Future projects include refining the music and lyrics for his original musical “For the Lack of Laura,” and producing a music video for “The Moon Followed Me to Falmouth,” a song reminiscent of old sea shanties from the British Isles.

Bryce Harper deal was in place, Astros GM says: ‘It didn’t happen. So we moved on’

Bryce Harper deal was in place, Astros GM says: ‘It didn’t happen. So we moved on’

first_img“But it is an indication that every year during the summer we’re going to look at alternatives helping our club. Especially if we’re in a position where we think we’re looking good for the playoffs, we know who our opposition might be in the playoffs and certainly a player like that would have helped us.” MLB hot stove: Giants to offer Bryce Harper short-term deal, report says As speculation around Bryce Harper’s future continues pending his free agency decision, Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow revealed the 26-year-old outfielder was close to landing with Houston before the trade deadline in July 2018. “There was an agreement in principle in place and it didn’t get over the finish line for whatever reason, out of our control. But, yeah, we had interest,” Luhnow told the media Thursday at the Astros’ spring training. “We had worked out an agreement with players both ways. But those things have approval levels they have to go through and it didn’t happen so we moved on.” With players beginning to report to spring training this week, Harper remains a free agent. The Giants, Padres, Dodgers, Phillies, Angels and Yankees have all been rumored to be interested in landing the six-time All-Star. Harper, who has spent all seven of his MLB seasons with the Nationals, slashed .249/.393/.496 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs in 159 games with the Nationals last season. Jeff Luhnow acknowledged the #Astros had an agreement in place to land Bryce Harper in a trade last season that fell through: “It didn’t happen. So we moved on.” pic.twitter.com/r9ZXjasOVH— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) February 14, 2019Lunhow didn’t reveal details as to why the deal didn’t work out, but he explained situations like that happen often. “We don’t really talk about the deals that didn’t happen because they don’t happen, but I think guys would be surprised at the types of players at times we’ve gone after and how close we’ve come on some of them,” Lunhow added.  Related Newslast_img read more

Three Mavericks Who Won

Three Mavericks Who Won

first_imgThe loner, not the consensus, is sometimes the one whose views get traction in science. Here are three historical examples.The following stories have something in common: they are about people who worked alone on ideas that ran counter to their societies’ beliefs.  This is not to say that they were completely right on every idea they promoted.  They were at least visionaries who thought outside the box and opened up others to new avenues of inquiry that proved fruitful.Ada LovelaceThe first is a fascinating woman, Ada Lovelace (1815-1852). This daughter of English poet Lord Byron circulated in fashionable circles and married well, becoming the Countess of Lovelace in 1838.  She had studied under Mary Somerville, becoming proficient in mathematics. She also corresponded with leading scientists, including David Brewster and Michael Faraday. She is best known for her association with Charles Babbage, inventor of the first general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She is sometimes credited with writing the first “computer program” by writing down, in 1842, a series of steps by which the machine could calculate a series of Bernoulli numbers. Lovelace greatly encouraged Babbage with her ideas about the promise of such a device. It would be nearly a century before her sweeping vision of the capabilities of general-purpose computing—a vision we all take for granted—would take root.  She died of cancer at age 36.The BBC News did a story on Ada Lovelace on the occasion of the first-time reading of some of her letters on BBC radio.  “So is Ada Lovelace our first tech visionary? Or, as some critics now claim, was her contribution to computer science vastly overrated?” There are indications she was “a passionate, ambitious and flawed individual,” an ambitious socialite and flighty woman with some bouts of mania. Some of those flaws may have been ironed out at the end of her life, when reportedly “she had a religious transformation and was coaxed into repenting of her previous conduct” (Wikipedia). The BBC agrees with our focus here, though, that Ada Lovelace belongs among those “who imagine how the next generation of technology might change the world.” She and Babbage did not live to see it come, but one can imagine their delight and astonishment could they witness today’s Information Age.Gregor Mendel, 1822 – 1884Gregor MendelThere has been some controversy about the Father of Genetics, Gregor Mendel (1822-1844), whose pivotal work on garden peas was not widely recognized in his lifetime but was “rediscovered” by geneticists early in the 20th century. The “Mendel-Fisher Controversy” arose in 1936 (70 years after Mendel’s paper on inheritance) when theoretical geneticist Ronald Fisher deduced that Mendel’s data were “too good to be true” statistically. This led some critics to call him the “father of scientific misconduct” on suspicions that he must have faked his data. Gregory Radick (U of Leeds historian of science) says in Science Magazine, “The suspicions have turned out to be groundless.”Radick does question whether Mendel’s peas could have been so neatly pigeonholed into binary categories (wrinkled vs smooth, green vs yellow) and considers it plausible that some underlying bias operated to confirm his theory, with perhaps the “help” of a well-meaning assistant.  For our purposes, the fact remains that Mendel was a maverick in his monastery (an unlikely laboratory), working alone on a concept at odds with his contemporaries, but whose ideas later became mainstream.  Like Ada Lovelace, Mendel did not live to see his ideas widely accepted.  The fact that principles of inheritance are more nuanced these days than deterministic Mendelism would suggest does not change the fact that Mendel thought outside the box and forged a fruitful new path for generations of geneticists.Alfred WegenerLike Lovelace and Mendel, the father of continental drift theory, Alfred Wegener (1880-1930) was a maverick whose ideas only became mainstream after his death. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his magnum opus, The Origin of Continents and Oceans (1915), Ted Nield celebrates a new biography of the man and his theory in Nature.  In a shorter piece in Nature, Romano and Cifelli describe the resistance of the scientific community to his original thinking:His theory of continental drift was initially viewed as heresy by the scientific community, yet his book was later translated into many languages and updated regularly until 1929…. After his death, his ideas were largely forgotten until the 1960s, when geophysicists demonstrated the phenomenon of sea-floor spreading (see N. Oreskes Nature 501, 27–29; 2013). Plate tectonics has since gained acceptance as a synthetic theory with huge explanatory power.Continental drift theory today has run aground with anomalies and epicycles; our purpose here is not to enter that debate. What matters is that Wegener worked largely alone, forging a path that the consensus followed only after decades of scorn and neglect.  Wegener’s body was not recovered from an accident when he was exploring Greenland. “He would have been glad to know,” Romano and Cifelli quip, “that it will have travelled some 20 kilometres in a million years’ time — in accordance with his visionary theory.”Skeptics of that ending joke might wish to consult with creation geologists who deny that continental drift is linear, slow, and gradual.  They have presented new theories about rapid continental drift during the Flood that not only fit the evidence better but make predictions.  Still, all agree these days that continents are not static, as was largely assumed before the 1960s.These accounts illustrate an important thing about the nature of science. Consensus really means little. Picture the consensus in the days of Lovelace, Mendel and Wegener: all confident, all agreeing with one another, all ridiculing those outside. They were wrong. Science is not consensus, and consensus is not science. The loner can be correct, and even when he or she is only partly correct, a maverick can at least open up new fruitful trails of inquiry.What’s our take-home lesson?  The consensus today can be just as wrong.  Whether it’s about junk DNA, global warming or evolution, a consensus carries no necessary validity, even when globally strong.  A consensus might be right, but science’s best theories are only tentative.  Don’t let the powerful Darwin lobby strut its numbers.  What matters is who’s got the best evidence.  One maverick in town can drive out a lot of corruption.

South African women making progress

South African women making progress

first_imgAlthough government has put policies in place to help women and great strides have been made in the past 20-years the report says corporate South Africa still has to recognise the importance of women as too few are in senior roles and in many instances, earn less than their male counterparts. (Image: Judy Seidman, African Activist Archive)The Status of Women Report has been released by President Jacob Zuma during the commemoration of Women’s Day 2015.Women’s Day marks the day 20 000 women marched to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956, to petition against the apartheid regime’s racist pass laws.During the celebrations Zuma revealed South Africa’s first Status of Women Report that tracks the advancement of women in the economy across five areas: education, the labour market, poverty, inequality and access to assets and credit.The theme for this year’s Women’s Month is “Women united in moving South Africa forward”.Zuma said: “Today we mark 20 years since our country began celebrating National Women’s Day. This day was designated to celebrate the gallant contribution of South African women to the struggle for liberation and the attainment of the democracy we enjoy in our country.“National Women’s Day also provides an opportunity to track the progress made in the advancement of women and in improving the quality of life of all women in our country, especially the poor and the working class.”Zuma added that repressive laws entrenching white privilege in the apartheid era suppressed women in many ways up to this day. Women – and black women in particular – still suffer from that legacy.“Also, if we are to succeed economically as a country, women must participate at both the micro and macro levels of the economy,” said Zuma.AFTER 1994With the dawn of a new democracy measures were put in place to empower women socially and economically.According to the report, significant progress has been made in areas such as legal status, attitudes, women’s involvement in decision-making especially at political level, in employment, education, ownership of homes and businesses, the justice system, and economic participation.Women representation in the National Assembly moved from a mere 2.7% pre 1994 to the current 41%. The representation of women in Cabinet has also risen following the 2014 general election and stands at 43%, with deputy Ministers being at 45.9%.Zuma said: “Women constitute about 33% of all the judges in our judiciary. The judiciary had two white women in 1994. Now, in democracy, there are 61 women judges of which 48 are black women. Furthermore, we have two women Judge Presidents and a woman Deputy Judge President. Women constitute about 41% of the total magistracy.”However it’s not all sunshine as the Employment Equity Report indicates that in 2014, women still accounted for only 21% of top executive management positions and 32% of all senior management positions. Women appear to be stuck at both middle and junior management levels where they account for 45% and 43% respectively.“It would be good to have more women serving on the boards of directors of corporate South Africa,” said Zuma.WOMEN STILL BEAR THE BRUNTAnother sobering assessment of where women stand in South Africa is the wage gap between working women and men. More than 46% of South African working women earn R2 500 or less, as opposed to 33% of men in that same wage bracket.Women also bear the brunt of joblessness more than men and using data from the National Income Dynamics Survey, the report found in 2012 that over 63% of black South African women lived below the national lower poverty line of R597 per month, as opposed to just 1.6% of white women.According to the report between 2008 and 2012, the proportion living in poverty didn’t change for black women yet it decreased for white women and rose markedly for coloured women.GETTING EDUCATEDThe report shows there are more women graduating from tertiary institutions than men.A Commission on Higher Education report reveals that women are more successful in their studies. In 2007, 59% of graduates were women, although only 55.5% of all enrolled students were women.Zuma said: “At the universities of technology, 55% of graduates were women compared with 51% of enrolments. In the comprehensive universities 62% of graduates were women, while women made up only 57% of enrolments. And at the universities, 59% of graduates were women, compared to 56% of enrolment.“In the education field more than 70% of the graduates are women while in the human and social sciences, more than 60%.”last_img read more

Just because I know what to eat and how it is to be prepared does not mean I can stand up and do a demonstration.  I have done one cooking demonstration and it took me so long to prepare that I have never done it again.  It was a success however and well-received, thanks to a lot of planning.  I have a friend however who can put together a food/cooking demonstration at the drop of a hat and do it on TV while providing great nutritional advice.  Her audience loves it and she loves doing it. What is her secret?If you want to start doing cooking demonstrations, please listen to this audio cast with  Dr. Karen Chapman-Novakofski and Lori Carlson, MS, RDN, LDN, who presented “Cooking Up Nutrition Education” January 26, 2016.  You can still obtain 1.0 CPEU by visiting the event page, watching the recording and completing the evaluation.
