‘That’s What She Said’ (RE)Sisters Launch Special
Event on 2016-02-24 19:00:00
THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID – A NIGHT OF SPOKEN WORD ALL WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY WOMEN!! Howdy hepcats! We're back from our winter break and 'That's What She Said' is ready for an excellent New Year at 'The Book Club'! We welcome a wide range of speakers, from slam poetry to storytelling, contemporary political thought to comedy we will bring women’s voices to the forefront, while at the same time giving a platform to writers and performers we love. This month our featured speaker is the amazing Cheryl Martin who wowed us all the For Books' Sake Birthday Bonanza last year! Cheryl Martin was born in Washington, D.C., grew up in nearby Maryland, and went to university at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts in the States and Emmanuel College, Cambridge in England.  She loves Manchester, her adopted city. Cheryl has won Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards as both writer [ Best Community Production, Heart and Soul, Oldham Coliseum and director Best Studio Production, Iron by Rona Munro, Working Girls/Contact, an Edinburgh Fringe First as co-director and producer of Traverse Theatre’s Breakfast Series The World Is Too Much, and this year a Lloyd’s Bank regional award for the immersive play she directed for Community Arts Northwest, Rule 35 [devised with refugee detainees from Yarls Wood], and longlisted for the Polari Book Prize for her collection of poems, Alaska Crocus/Commonword. She was also 2002 Commonwealth Games Artist-in-Residence.  http://www.cherylmartin.co.uk/about/ Twitter — @cherylalaska  Open mic walk ups on the evening are welcomed but with limited places it might be advisable to email paul@forbookssake.net if you have a burning desire to speak out and speak up. Price: £5 in advance / £8 OTD For Books' Sake is a volunteer led, charitable organisation so all your pennies will be going back into championing women writers!

By a line of reasoning very much, like that for the d. c. gen-erator, we can pass from this simple case to that of a four-poledrum-wound motor, illustrated in Fig. 129. The directions ofcurrent and rotation are shown by arrows.

For example, suppose the armature resis-tance of a certain motor is 0.25 ohm. and suppose that a currentof 4 amperes in the armature furnishes just enough pull to keepit rotating.

Ionization in Electron Tubes.—The above explanation ofthe mechanism of the flow of current between the filament andplate in an electron tube applies to a tube having a very per-fect vacuum. If there is more than the merest trace of gasremaining in the tube, the operation is more complicated, and alarger current will usually flow with the same applied voltage.This happens in the following manner. In a rarefied gas some of the electrons present are constituentparts of atoms and some are free. These free electrons moveabout with great velocity, and if one of them strikes an atom THE ELECTRON FLOW. 453 it may dislodge another electron from the atom. Under theaction of the emf. between plate and filament the newly freedelectron will acquire velocity in one direction—the direction inwhich the colliding electron is moving—and the positivelycharged remainder of the atom, called an ion, will move in

Ukiah Symphony presents “Copland–America’s Composer,” featuring Luiz Coelho, clarinetist

Ukiah Symphony presents “Copland–America’s Composer,” featuring Luiz Coelho, clarinetist
Event on 2016-02-20 20:00:00
Copland-America's Composer by Karen Rifkin In a tribute to Aaron Copland, one of the most respected American classical composers of the twentieth century, the Ukiah Symphony will be performing his Quiet City, Clarinet Concerto and Appalachian Spring on Saturday, February 20th at 8 p.m. and Sunday, February 21st at 3 p.m. at Near and Arnold's School of Performing Arts & Cultural Education Theater. Two Elegiac Melodies, Opus 34 by Norwegian Romantic composer and pianist Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) will be presented during the first half of the chamber concert performance. Written in 1880 and inspired by Aasmund Vinje, a fellow Romantic nationalist, Grieg transcribed two of the poet's pieces for a string orchestra. Musically poignant and tender, the first movement addresses the wounds of life and their inability to destroy faith and the second depicts a season of rebirth with the possibility of not living to see another. Copland (1900-1990), an American composer, composition teacher, writer and conductor, incorporated popular forms of jazz and folk into his work, creating exceptional and innovative pieces considered to epitomize the sound of American music, evoking its vast landscape and pioneer spirit all the while forging a distinctively American style of composition. Quiet City (1940), an ode to New York City, a one-movement work for trumpet, English horn, and strings written as incidental music to accompany a play of the same name by Irwin Shaw, is an instrumental meander through the lonely and mysterious world of a city after dark, as the main character, Gabriel, wrestles with his troubled conscience and struggles with middle class guilt over his ever-improving standard of living at the expense of the poor. The piece will feature Beth Aiken on English horn, a double-reed woodwind instrument in the oboe family, larger and with a lower range, and Gary Miller on trumpet. Copland's Clarinet Concerto, originally commissioned by legendary swing musician Benny Goodman in 1947, will feature Luiz Coelho on clarinet with an instrumental accompaniment of strings and harp. Written in two movements, the first is slow and lyrical, blending an introspective clarinet with strings, and the second is jazzy and contemporary, incorporating popular Latin tunes into the texture. Of Coelho, conductor Les Pfutzenreuter says, "Luiz has one of the best clarinet sounds I've ever heard, sensitive and expressive, and his warm Brazilian spirit and personality are clearly reflected in his playing." Appalachian Spring, scored for a thirteen-member chamber orchestra, was commissioned by choreographer and dancer Martha Graham for the ballet in which she appeared in the lead role. It premiered in 1944 in Washington, D.C. and Copland was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music for this achievement, creating one of the most inspiring and symbolic works of the century. Initially untitled, Copland referred to it as "Ballet for Martha" and, prior to the premier, Graham suggested Appalachian Spring from a phrase from a Hart Crane poem, The Dance. The story line is of a spring celebration of 19th century, Pennsylvanian, newlywed pioneers after completing the building of a farmhouse. According to composer Robert Kapilow, the essence of the whole ballet can be heard in the opening chords; he describes the piece as being centered in the earth, descending like sunlight upon a pastoral scene, creating an effect like the flowering of dawn. One of the melodies, an emotional high point, is based on the traditional Shaker song, Simple Gifts, and throughout the piece Copland weaves melodies that evoke simplicity and the good-natured piety of Shaker culture. Able to capture a vast emotional world, Appalachian Spring has achieved widespread and enduring popularity. Tickets for Copland-America's Composer at SPACE Theater are available at www.brownpapertickets.com; Mendocino Book Company at 102 South School St. in Ukiah; and Mail Center, Etc. at 207A North Cloverdale Blvd. in Cloverdale.

“An education film that gets it” Washington Post “Must see movie” NY Times “Another Inconvenient Truth” George Lucas Educational Foundation A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children's lives. Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace; students are disengaged; stress-related illness and depression are rampant; and many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired. Race to Nowhere is a call to action for families, educators, and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens. _____ For more information, please contact us via email.
