About Fall River
map
The city of Fall River was founded in 1803 as a town and then incorporated in 1854 as a city. Fall River is located in Bristol County about 50 miles from Boston. The city's name originated from a Native American name "Quequchan" which means falling water.

To bring tourism to its full potential in Fall River there are many places of interest. In the city you will find the U.S.S Memorial, Fall River Heritage State Park, and the Old Colony and Fall River Rail Road Museum.

During the Halloween season Fall River also has numerous haunted attractions including the Factory of Terror or the Asylum of Horror. The Lizzie Borden Museum is also a bed and breakfast where you will learn the story of the murder mystery that was never solved. Stay if you dare!!

The Economic Benefits of Gender Intelligence

The Economic Benefits of Gender Intelligence
A CFO RoundTable and Vistage International Leadership Series Event
Tuesday, April 29, 2014, 7:30 - 9:30 a.m.
The offices of Robert Half International, 125 High Street, Boston, MA 

 

Gender Intelligence is not something arrived at by achieving a quota, ignoring or tolerating our differences, or becoming less authentic to ourselves, just to succeed. Gender Intelligence comes from understanding and appreciating the natural talents that men and women bring to the table. As men and women come to understand each other’s ways of thinking and acting, they step up to a new and powerful level of conversation. They begin to include each other more confidently and more willingly.  

There are a number of highly successful organizations today instilling what we call a culture of difference-thinking. These companies are beacons for talented professionals. They’re recruiting and retaining the best and brightest men and women. There are a number of companies today building such organizations and realizing the value of their efforts. They’ve taken the first step with leadership commitment and involvement.

Join The CFO RoundTable and Vistage International for “The Economic Benefits of Gender Intelligence” on Tuesday, April 29 in Boston. In this session, we will discuss how gender intelligence helps companies:

  • Secure and retain the best talent
  • Make better decisions
  • Produce more relevant products and services that mirror the market
  • Achieve superior financial results

During this interactive session, our speaker will review the definition of gender intelligence, how it can benefit companies, and ask you to participate in a peer-driven session on the challenges and opportunities gender intelligence presents for your organization.

This session is the first in a 3-part Leadership Series, co-produced by Vistage International and The CFO RoundTable. Other sessions will be announced shortly.

Registration

Registration is $20, and includes breakfast. CFO and Controllers RoundTable members and friends and Vistage members are welcome to attend.

To register for this event, please complete the form above and click submit when complete. For questions or more information, contact Becky Blackler, Executive Director, The CFO RoundTable, at becky@thecforoundtable.com.

Fossil Fuel Free Investing - Power, Money and The Planet

Fossil Fuel Free Investing: Money, Power and The Planet

StakeHolders Capital and First Congregational Church Address the pros and cons of this strategy.

April 23 Forum Promises a Heated Debate

                Date — A forum addressing Fossil Fuel Free investing will take place Wednesday, April 23 from 6:30-8:30 at the First Congregational Church, located at 165 Main Street, Amherst. Industry experts will engage in a lively discussion debating whether divestment from fossil fuel companies is a sound strategy for addressing climate change.

With the March 31 release of the United Nations report on the sweeping impacts of climate change on humans on every continent, the impact of burning fossil fuels on our planet can no longer be ignored. How best to move energy companies away from fossil fuels, whether by divestment or through shareholder advocacy, is at the heart of the debate.

Those engaged in the debate will include

  • Alice Swift, 350.org – MA
  • Terry Mollner of StakeHolders Capital and the Boards of Calvert Social Funds and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream,
  • Tom Gainey of Pax World Funds, and
  • Anurag Sharma, Professor Business Strategy, Isenberg School of Mgmt. UMass


Andrew Bellak of StakeHolders Capital, Inc. will moderate the debate.

The evening is co-hosted by StakeHolders Capital, First Church’s Earth and Investment Ministry Teams, and Pax World Funds.

It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. 

StakeHolders Capital is a full service investment management firm committed to integrating clients’ values with their investment objectives.

Worcester, MA – Medicine Cabinet Makeover Class

  

What do green smoothies and your medicine cabinet have in common? 

Now that you have revolutionized your diet and "made-over" your pantry by stocking it with plant-based, whole foods, we want to teach you how to "make-over" your medicine cabinet by replacing the over-the-counter medicines and other drugs in your home with pure, plant-based medicine-- also known as essential oils.  

Just as you have been taught and have enjoyed the simple, nutritious, and delicious green smoothie drink and introduction into the whole-foods lifestyle by Robyn Openshaw, we invite you to join with our Green Smoothie Girl health coaches to learn how you can take charge of your healthcare with these self-directed, medicinal oils that you can utilize everyday to improve your body's chemistry and natural defenses.  

 

Learn easy approaches to a variety of “life’s little emergencies,” using plant-based biochemistry. Decrease the cost of your health care and eliminate side effects of the drug approach to health, using healing essential oils.


"Make Over Your Medicine Cabinet" -- taught by a  Green Smoothie Girl Certified Health Coach Judi Sears.

 

Join us for this free, how-to class and learn to be a healer in your own home because there is nothing better than medicine that is safe, natural, and effective-- (except maybe a green smoothie).  :wink:    

Get a ticket for yourself and a friend.  We hope to see you there!  If you have any questions please email Coach Judi at coachjudi@greensmoothiegirl.com

SAWAN Fundraiser: Zero Tolerance of Violence Against Women

Zero Tolerance of Violence Against Women

Need to run? No ... Need to Donate? Yes, please!


Have you heard?  President Nadeem Bezar is running the Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014!  Wait, that’s not the best part … Nadeem will match donations up to $1000 to support Global Fund for Women - www.globalfundforwomen.org.  The South Asian Women Attorneys Network (SAWAN) and South Asian Bar Association of North America champion women’s rights and aim to help prevent violence against women.  To that end, SAWAN has selected Global Fund for Women to receive 100% of the proceeds from the fundraiser.  The funds we raise will be granted by Global Fund for Women to women-led organizations in India such as HUMSAFAR Crisis Support Center for Women, Mithra Foundation, and Shaheen Women’s Resource and Welfare Association that focus on providing resources to empower women and strive to end gender-based violence.

According to a recent report prepared by India’s National Crime Records Bureau, a crime is recorded against women in India every three minutes. Every 60 minutes, two women are raped. Every six hours, a young married woman is found beaten to death, burnt, or driven to suicide. Women are also increasingly at risk for trafficking for various reasons such as: domestic work, marriage, labor, prostitution and sex work. While registered crimes against women in India consistently rise with each passing year, the conviction rates for these crimes remain low. The conviction rate for unnatural deaths of women in India hovers at less than 7 percent.   


Join us in amplifying our message that violence against women will not be tolerated. SAWAN encourages all SABA North America members to donate at least $25 before the end of April. Remember, Nadeem will match donations up to $1000 when he finishes the marathon (even if he doesn’t finish in first place!)  Please direct questions to shaaminbabu@gmail.com.

PRAJNA SESSION III - The Subtle Body with Tias Little

The Subtle Body course is an in-depth study of the neck and the cranium along with the throat chakra and the chakras inside the skull. We review the bones of the cranium, cranial sutures, jaw and sensory organs. We detail the practice of jalandhara bandha and its effect on the throat chakra, and thyroid gland. We study pratyahara (the softening of sensory awareness), particularly in relation to the eyes, ears, mouth, and throat. We emphasize the importance of the organ of the tongue and introduce khechari mudra to release the upper palate and throat. We practice mobilization techniques to release strain in the neck and shoulder region. The asana Practices emphasize the study of inversions including headstand, shoulder stand and plough.

One of the primary themes of The Subtle Body is the emotional body. Stemming from our anatomical study of the throat, skull, and brain, we study the central nervous system with its sympathetic and parasympathetic branches and the fight or flight response. We investigate the impact that trauma has on both mind and body, and we look at how anxiety and stress become embedded in the body's soft tissues. In light of the effects that stress and trauma have on the body, we study the kleshas or afflictions from both the Patanjali Yoga Sutras and the Buddhist teaching. We compare the kleshas as enumerated in the ancient yoga texts to current theories of stress and emotional holding given Western psychology and somatic practices.

PRAJNA SESSION II - The Fluid Body with Tias Little

Session II begins at the third chakra and the kidney/adrenal region with an in-depth study of the musculoskeletal and myofascial systems of the upper trunk. Engage in learning about the circulation of blood, lymph, cerebral-spinal fluid through the body and the importance of hydration and fluidity. Pranayama practice is introduced with ways to sensitize the diaphragm, ribs, and lung tissue. Asana sequences include poses to align and open the upper body: back bends, inversions, and arm balances. Explore the cosmic themes of water and life and more.

The Fluid Body will advance your knowledge and practice for in-depth personal study as well as for those who are pursuing a yoga teacher training program.

Most cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke are caused by plaque rupture which happens without warning.   Available screening and diagnostic methods are insufficient to identify the victims before the event occurs. Medical imaging has emerged as powerful tool to quantify atherosclerotic plaque morphology, stenosis severity and plaque compositions. Patient-specific image-based modeling techniques have been developed to perform plaque mechanical analysis and have led to better understanding of mechanisms governing plaque progression and rupture. The objective of this workshop is to gather researchers from different disciplines related to image-based cardiovascular computational modeling to exchange state-of-the-art techniques in their respective fields, provide mutual professional training so that participants could broaden their skills and knowledge basis. The workshop will also identify challenges and critical needs in all related areas by listening to experts from other areas.

The workshop will have four themes, corresponding to the 4 aims listed below. We propose a two-day workshop, with a half-day committed to each theme. Participant presentations, workshops for individual group methods, panel discussions moderated by leaders in the field, and summaries for each theme will be arranged.

Aim 1. Identify critical issues encountered in medical image acquisition techniques related to vulnerable plaque research and corresponding strategies including image resolution, vulnerable plaque identification, cap thickness, intraplaque hemorrhage, and thrombosis;

Aim 2. Identify critical issues in mechanical testing and quantification of material properties and other boundary conditions such as flow velocity and blood pressure;

Aim 3. Identify critical issues in model development, plaque assessment, mechanisms, prediction of rupture and clinical events; method sharing / training. Conduct Image-Based FSI Modeling Workshop;

Aim 4. Validation of model predictions and assessment plan; Discussion on how the clinician can use the mechanics information to predict impending heart attack and guide therapy procedures; Research dissemination and commercialization, transforming research to clinical practices.

Presentations and Publications. Oral and poster presentations will be arranged. Full papers will be published as a special issue by Biomedical Engineering Online, following reviews organized by the Conference Scientific Committee. A good discount on publication charge has been obtained.

People interested in participating should contact me (dtang@wpi.edu). Limited travel support is available to off-set some travel cost. The title and the abstract of your paper should be sent to me by April 30. Full paper is due by May 31, 2014.

 Registration and Accommodations. A nominal registration fee will be to covers meals and conference materials. Students and participants staying in WPI East Hall (3 bedroom suite with shared bath/kitchen/living room) will incur room charge $60/night/person. Participants staying at Courtyard Marriot Hotel (walking distance) will incur $125/night/person. Local transportation cost between Boston and Worcester (train, car rental or taxi) varies.
