Jonathan Govias, left, an Abreu Fellow from Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music, helps St. Stanislaus Elementary School cello student Neythan Poling, 8, with bowing during a rehearsal with the CityMusic Cleveland Youth Orchestra. Five months ago, these kids could hardly sit still. They continue to fidget from time to time, but they snap to attention when Amitai Vardi speaks in his most forceful voice. "Instruments up, everybody," says the conductor, who's also a clarinetist in CityMusic Cleveland, the professional chamber orchestra that gives free concerts around the region. "I need ...
and made the political issues of the 1850s regarding slavery tangible to millions, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South . Upon meeting Stowe, Abraham Lincoln allegedly remarked, "So you're the little lady who started this great war !" The quote is apocryphal; it did not appear in print until 1896, and it has been argued that "The long-term durability of Lincoln's greeting as an anecdote in literary studies and Stowe scholarship can perhaps be explained in part by the desire among many contemporary intellectuals ... to affirm the role of ...
Bike Snob NYC: Parroting: Continual Conversations with the Road
With "Bike Month" having long since dropped back to the "autobus" of memory, it's been quite some time since a mainstream newspaper has published an article about "cycle chic." This is of course a matter of some concern, since consuming this sort of easily-excreted intellectual roughage is essential for maintaining mental regularity. Fortunately, the Wall Street Journal has come to the rescue with a great big bowl of "bike culture" bran flakes : Interestingly, though, the headline refers to "biker chic" and not "cycle chic," presumably since Copenhagen Cycle Chic market research, surveys and trends

Florida, UNC and SC are the latest schools to face agent-related investigations
The NCAA is looking into whether trips taken by North Carolina's Marvin Austin (9), teammate Greg Little and South Carolina's Weslye Saunders were paid for by agents. When the NCAA handed down severe sanctions against USC last month, I wrote that the Committee on Infractions parlayed the Reggie Bush and O.J. Mayo scandals to send a message to athletic departments around the country about vigilance in monitoring star players' relationships with prospective agents. Apparently that was just the beginning. Over the past few days, we've learned that the NCAA is conducting investigations into several high-profile ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Two US bishops say Mass near Mexican border to pray for end to violence
EL PASO, Texas (CNS) -- Bishop Armando X. Ochoa of El Paso and Bishop Ricardo Ramirez of Las Cruces, New Mexico, celebrated Mass July 14 near the foot of a bridge that crosses the Rio Grande to pray for an end to violence on the U.S.-Mexico border. The Mass followed a procession by more than 300 El Pasoans -- led by a group of American Indian dancers -- from Sacred Heart Church to Placita de Leones, which is near a highly trafficked bridge that crosses into Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The procession and Mass were organized by Annunciation House -- an El Paso refuge for migrants from Mexico and Latin America -- after 14-year-old ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Agent-based modeling enhances our capacity to model competitive and cooperative behaviors at both the individual and group levels of analysis. Models presented in these proceedings produce consistent results regarding the relative fragility of cooperative regimes among agents operating under diverse rules. These studies also show how competition and cooperation may generate change at both the group and societal level. Agent-based simulation of competitive and cooperative behaviors may reveal the greatest payoff to social science research of all agent-based modeling efforts because of the need to better understand the dynamics of ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

What do you think of raising children in a "gender neutral" ...
I completely believe gender identity is embedded in the child itself, at least as far as our traditional views of “gender identity” go. If you put my son in a room full of toys, he’ll go immediately to a blue truck or a baseball. He couldn’t care less about teddy bears (though he’ll give one a kiss if you hand it to him, he’ll throw it out of the toy stroller before pushing the stroller around) and dress-up is equivalent to torture. His bedroom has all sorts of toys, from make-believe to sports, to cars and trucks, and even a few dolls and baby bottles and the like. I’m not going to tell ...
