Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps


The story of The Glass Child, Charlotte Eriksson, is one of those you usually see on movies. Only 18 years old she left everything she had and knew in Gothenburg, Sweden, and moved to London to dedicate her whole life to her music and art. A vague dream about reaching out turned out to be an extraordinary fight for true and real art. A journey about self-discovery, learning solitude, the difference between having a home and feeling at home and how she finally found a home in herself, in her music, in her words. Charlotte spent a year homeless on the road, sleeping at friends’ and fans’ floors, learning and searching. An ordinary girl created a community of over 22,000 dedicated fans online, and all alone with nothing but hard work and determination she managed to build a life on her art, being a true inspiration to so many people, showing that you can achieve and become exactly who you want to be, if you just want it bad enough. “I wanted to turn my life into art. My very existence into a poem. This is my story – it’s been a beautiful adventure. A beautiful battle. And it still is.” After one single reaching #2 on the Swedish Itunes-chart, 30,000+ followers on twitter, praise from media & blogs from all over the world & 5 critically acclaimed albums; she packed her life in a guitar case and spent a year homeless on the road, with nothing but a dream and a longing for something more. This is the story about the girl who left everything she knew to dedicate her whole life to her art.

Losing Dad, Paranoid Schizophrenia: A Family’s Search for Hope

Losing Dad, Paranoid Schizophrenia: A Family’s Search for Hope


Losing Dad, Paranoid Schizophrenia: a Family’s Search for Hope,” is the compelling true story of a family grappling with the stranglehold of severe mental illness. The ordeal began innocently enough. “Joseph” was happily raising a middle class family in the California suburbs when he was diagnosed with cancer. The operation was successful and prognosis good until a routine follow-up procedure was botched. Doctors corrected the issue and sent “Joseph” home from the hospital, but he was never the same again. At age 53, Joseph suddenly became prone to fits of rage and hallucinations. His new and disturbing religious obsessions and proselytizing alienated his grown children and got him fired from his job, while his wife began to fear for her life. Depression, anxiety, and paranoia overtook this once-vibrant man. Frequent hospital stints and a persistent refusal to stay on medication ultimately led him to flee his home and travel the world homeless as a self-proclaimed religious prophet, eschewing wealth, belongings and family. Joseph’s colorful descent into psychosis featured a journey that stretched across thirty countries, four continents, and thirteen wives. He faced down drug dealers and prostitutes, advised the Italian Mafioso and was hailed as a prophet in Africa. Losing Dad not only features Joseph’s harrowing – and still ongoing – flight from reality amidst anosognosia, but also valuable information about severe mental illness, a crippling disease that affects 1 in 17 people and can develop inside any mind at any time. It provides a list of resources, a discussion of current mental health laws, and plenty of food for thought. The Foreword is written by Dr. Xavier Amador. “I highly recommend ‘Losing Dad’ both as an educational tool and as a heartfelt tale. Beautifully woven between the facts are the feelings. Amanda LaPera] shows that behind every severe mental illness there is a human being.” – Xavier Amador, Ph.D, Founder, LEAP Institute Author, I am Not

Selecting the Mercury Seven: The Search for America's First Astronauts

Selecting the Mercury Seven: The Search for America's First Astronauts


The names of the seven Mercury astronauts were announced in April 1959 amid a flurry of publicity and patriotism. This work provides biographical details of all thirty-two finalists for the seven coveted places as America''s pioneering astronauts. All of the candidates were among the nation''s elite pilots involved in testing new supersonic aircraft capabilities. Most had served as wartime fighter and bomber pilots; some were test pilots on top secret and sophisticated aviation projects, while others were fleet admirals, prisoners of war, and proposed pilots for spaceflight programs such as the Dyna-Soar (X-20). The names of all 32 finalists have been kept secret until very recently. Selecting the Mercury Seven also relates the history and difficulties behind the initial choice of candidates. The lives, motivations, military careers, and achievements of the unsuccessful twenty-five finalists are explored first in fully authorized biographies. Test pilots for the U.S. Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, each man has a fascinating and very different story to tell. All thirty-two men had to endure meticulous, demeaning, and brutal week-long medical examinations at the Lovelace Clinic in New Mexico. This was followed by another torturous week at the Wright Aeromedical Laboratory in Ohio, where they were subjected to extreme fitness and physiological testing, the sole purpose of which was to sort out the Supermen from the near-supermen. The final part of the book examines the accomplishments and spaceflights of the seven successful candidates, bringing their amazing stories right up to date.

The Radio Boys Search for the Inca’s Treasure


“This is a wonderful land, fellows, full of legend and story, vast mountains, vast rivers, vast jungles, unexplored territory and unconquered tribes.” It was Jack Hampton speaking, and he leaned on the rail of a coastwise steamer, as she came to anchor in the open roadstead of Valparaiso. “I wonder what lies ahead,” said Frank Merrick, leaning beside him. “We ought to get some adventure out of this, besides mere civilized travel.” Even Bob Temple, the most matter-of-fact of the three chums known as the Radio Boys, felt his imagination stirred……….. And so begins the latest adventure of the Radio Boys. An adventure that will see them follow the threads of an old tale and take them in search of Inca treasure – into forbidden monasteries and through hollow mountains in search of a fabled and enchanted city. A journey that would take them through age-old Andean forests only to be betrayed, captured and imprisoned in an ancient Acropolis then brought on trial in front of the Council of the Incas to find an unlikely ally who helps them escape. This book has been republished to raise funds for PROJECT PERU which runs a refuge in Zapallal, north of Lima. Project Peru is committed to those living in poverty and denied so much. It is their objective to return to the people of Peru, dignity through self-sufficiency and security through co-operation. 33% of the Publisher’s profit from the sale of this book will be donated to this worth cause. www.ProjectPeru.org.uk ABELA PUBLISHING – Yesterdays Books for Todays Charities

You Can Now Use Emojis To Search On Yelp, And It’s Not As Pointless As It Sounds

For the hungry and the lazy, hunting down the perfect slice of pizza just got better, thanks to the ingenious merging of Yelp and emojis.

Yelp released a new feature on its mobile app in late March, in which people can search using emoji if they’re feeling too sluggish to type out actual words. Yes, where you used to have to tap out “ice cream,” “doughnuts” and “pizza,” the simple selection of , and will now suffice.

But with 845 emojis to choose from on a standard iPhone keyboard (and with some having meanings as indecipherable as this little lady’s: ), you might wonder how reliable this service can be.

As it turns out, a lot of the emoji actually translate quite well. The pizza emoji, for example, proves practical when searching New York City’s Greenwich Village.

pizza emoji

Ramen’s easy to find, too.

ramen yelp

Locating nail parlors, banks, hair salons and postal offices is also a piece of cake (cake, no doubt, can be found too) with the applicable emoji.

yelp

Of course, Yelp does have some limitations when it comes to the more elusive emojis. But the app manages to be clever and creative with these puzzling emoticons.

If a New Yorker enters an obscure spiral emoji () into the search bar, he or she will be directed to Coney Island’s Cyclone coaster, as well as a wine bar?

squiggle

Broke your favorite light fixture from your trip abroad in Asia? That lantern emoji won’t help you find a new one, but it will direct you to restaurants with “lantern” in the name.

And that previously mentioned, indecipherable lady? She’ll take you to a wedding planner, a bunch of men’s clothing stores and the Gap. Interpret that how you will.

Needless to say, there are hours begging to be wasted on Yelp .

The Global Search for Education: Shepherd Sound

2014-02-27-cmrubinworldleadshepherdschool3500.jpg

“Musicians are all human, that is, we all have issues and things we want to improve but we also have the same goal, and that is to be the best we can be at what we do.”

– Niccolo Muti

World-renowned violinist, Cho-Liang Lin, Professor of Violin at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, urges all young musicians “to get up in front of people and perform.”

And The Shepherd School Orchestra did – magnificently! Led by their charismatic conductor, Larry Rachleff, the orchestra made its Carnegie Hall debut Tuesday evening, February 18 with energy, artistry and a very distinctive Shepherd sound.

Founded in 1975, The Shepherd School of Music in Houston is widely recognized as one of the nation’s most elite music institutions. The school emphasizes a performance-based curriculum. “I think what’s unique about the Shepherd School is that musicians are given a lot of opportunities to learn in front of an audience and that’s very important when it comes to building self-confidence,” explains student violinist Niccolo Muti.

The performance at Carnegie Hall kicked off with Hector Berlioz’ Le Corsaire followed by American Composer Christopher Rouse’s Violin Concerto featuring a remarkable solo performance by Cho-Liang Lin. The score to this complex and beautiful work was actually composed for Cho-Liang Lin in 1991. The principal orchestral work of the evening was Bela Bartok’s magnificent Concerto for Orchestra featuring numerous solos from the ensemble, giving many of the 103 extraordinarily gifted young musicians the opportunity to shine.

Beyond the dream of all accomplished musicians, which is to perform in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, there are the numerous additional benefits and skills that a music education at this level of the art form can offer students. “Performers achieve incredible levels of coordination and dexterity while simultaneously channeling the deepest emotional expressions of the music. How can this not be of benefit to all studies,” observes professional artist and faculty member, Jon Kimura Parker.

I had the opportunity to chat further with Cho-Liang Lin and Jon Kimura Parker along with students Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille (trombonist), Titus Underwood (oboist), Anatasia Sukhopara (violinist) and Niccolo Muti (violinist).

2014-02-27-cmrubinworldshepherdschool4400.jpg

“Passion for something one holds dear is very important. Beethoven, Tom Edison, Steve Jobs, Michelangelo, Goethe, Jonas Salk, and Lincoln all had passion. Believe in something one loves and pursue that something to the fullest.” – Cho-Liang Lin

You are both veterans of the international concert stage as well as committed educators. What do you think are the most important skills that a young artist must have to be successful in the professional world of music today?

Cho-Liang Lin: Classical music is such an exacting discipline. It takes years of practicing, single-minded training and hours of lessons. Then one enters the real world where competition is stiff and judgment of one’s talent and thus future career can be decided in one single performance or audition. Therefore, apart from talent, a young artist must have the ability to convey artistry, emotion and a real sense of beauty to the audience. This requires natural ability, confidence, clear-minded thinking and lots of experience. By experience, I mean knowing what to do on stage under pressure. This cannot be learned in a practice room. It must be learned by being on stage in front of an audience.

Jon Kimura Parker: I believe that young artists have to understand themselves and to be able to communicate effectively. Forty years ago, it was not remarkable to ask of our audience that they would disconnect from the external world and focus on a 40-minute work. Nowadays, we are stretching the attention span of many. I love to see a young artist be able to engage people around them; to inspire others to discover the incredible joy of great music.

What real world life skills do you believe an educated musician can use in other pursuits?

Cho-Liang Lin: In a word: Passion. I am passionate about music. Nothing is more rewarding than to listen or play a great work. Passion for something one holds dear is very important. Beethoven, Tom Edison, Steve Jobs, Michelangelo, Goethe, Jonas Salk, and Lincoln all had passion. Believe in something one loves and pursue that something to the fullest.

Jon Kimura Parker: Musicians aren’t just creating music; they are also great listeners. An educated musician typically has a highly developed sense of the beauty of mathematics and structure, an endless curiosity, and a deep connection with the humanities. These skills have taken musicians in many different directions.

2014-02-27-cmrubinworldriceuniversityshephardschool2500.jpg

“An educated musician typically has a highly developed sense of the beauty of mathematics and structure, an endless curiosity, and a deep connection with the humanities.” – Jon Kimura Parker

What real world life skills (other than music) did you gain from your education at the Shepherd School of Music? Do you think music helped you with your other academic studies at Rice?

Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille: Absolutely! Learning music gives you a lot of skills that are precious in life. One important example is discipline! To learn an instrument requires constant effort. You learn that with perseverance you can achieve your dream. And learning to persevere applies to everything in life.

Anastasia Sukhopara: I think gratitude and discipline are some of the most important life skills. The dedication to music and to the highest standards of excellence that are required at the Shepherd School are a priceless life lesson. Settling for nothing but the best is really a critical skill, in music and life alike.

Titus Underwood: I have gained a deeper appreciation for artistry among my young colleagues.

Niccolo Muti: You can be as passionate as you want to be about something but if you don’t put in the work it won’t help you succeed.

2014-02-27-cmrubinworldshepherdschoolcarnegie2500.jpg

“With perseverance you can achieve your dream. And learning to persevere applies to everything in life.” – Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille

So, what advice would you give to freshman musicians coming to the Shepherd School of Music?

Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille: Take every opportunity you can to learn and push yourself farther in your musical development! Shepherd school is such a rich musical environment. There are incredible faculty, talented students and so many opportunities. It’s the best time and the best environment to improve yourself and become a better musician!

Titus Underwood: Stay confident in your abilities but always humble in your ethics.

Anastasia Sukhopara: Know what you want, work hard and be patient!

Niccolo Muti: You are going to get a lot of opportunities to perform at the Shepherd School and performance experience is the most important thing when it comes to building self-confidence.

A lot of professional musicians both teach and perform at your school – what’s it like to be learning from artists/teachers such as Renee Fleming, Jon Kimura Parker and Cho-Liang Lin?

Madeleine Doyon-Robitaille: It’s fantastic that Shepherd School gives us these opportunities. It’s been an incredible experience to have the chance to play for those professional musicians! It’s always been really inspiring even when it was not my specific instrument.

Niccolo Muti: Renee Fleming gave a master class at the Shepherd School. She told us that she is still constantly learning and working at her craft. It made me realize that musicians are all human, that is, we all have issues and things we want to improve but we also have the same goal, and that is to be the best we can be at what we do.

Location Is (Still) Everything: The Surprising Influence of the Real World on How We Search, Shop, and Sell in the Virtual One


Conventional wisdom holds that the Internet makes the world flat and reduces friction, erasing the impact of the physical world on our buying habits.But Wharton professor and marketing expert David R. Bell argues that the way we use the Internet is largely shaped by the physical world that we inhabit. Anyone can go online and buy a pair of pants–but the likelihood that we would do so depends to a significant degree on where we live. The presence of stores nearby, trendy and friendly neighbors, and local sales taxes play a large role in the decision-making process when it comes to buying online.” Location Is (Still) Everything” is for anyone who wants to understand the patterns underlying how and why we use the Internet to shop, sell, and search, including entrepreneurs, students, and investors. This book is not only about Internet trends and innovations, but also about fundamental human behavior and the role that the Internet plays in our daily lives.

Ilie Wacs And Deborah Strobin, Holocaust Survivors, Search For SS Officer Alois, Who Saved Their Family On Kristallnacht

Ilie Wacs and Deborah Strobin will never forget the terror they felt as they hid inside their apartment in Austria while the sound of Nazi boots drew closer on November 9th and 10th in 1938. They didn’t make a sound on the fateful night of Kristallnacht, known to many Jews as “The Night of Broken Glass,” but their silence wasn’t the only reason that they and their family were spared from the violence.

Their deliverance came in an unexpected form — that of a young Nazi SS officer named Alois, who worked for their father, Mortiz Wachs, at his tailoring business in Vienna. Alois alerted the Wachs of the upcoming pogrom, and urged them to leave Austria before August 31, 1939, which was the day before Germany invaded Poland and World War II broke out.

Wacs, who was eleven at the time, recalls how Alois’ protection helped them remain safe on Kristallnacht in the book, “An Uncommon Journey,” that he co-authored with his sister, Deborah Strobin:

Alois came to our house. His tone was quite grave, and he convinced Papa that something terrible was going to happen. I could tell it was dangerous for him even to be seen in our home. He told Papa, “Gather your family tonight. Tell them to come here. Keep everyone inside. You will not be touched.”

Our building did not have an elevator, only stone steps. I stood inside the door, and I heard hobnail boots coming up, click, click, click, and click. I heard men’s voices. I heard the boots stop at our door, and then I heard them move on. They never even knocked. We were passed over. We were shielded by Alois. We were saved.

The family managed to escape into Italy, then to Shanghai, and the siblings now reside in New York City. They’ve recounted their family history in their book, “An Uncommon Journey,” but one question remains unanswered– what happened to Alois? Wacs and Strobin are on a mission to find him with the little information that they have, so they can honor him with the title of “Righteous Gentile.”

Wacs told The Huffington Post that if he found Alois or his descendants, “I would thank him for saving our lives.” He continued, “To me, it is somewhat of a mystery why a person would be willing to sacrifice his family– because that was what was at stake! But some people did it. If we do find him, he would deservedly be one of the Righteous Gentiles.”

He shared more thoughts about his experience, remarking that many people ask him questions about what he thinks is the moral of the story.

In response, Wacs said, “There is no moral. Life is random. Survival is primarily a matter of luck. We survived because of that man, but if that man hadn’t been around, we wouldn’t have survived. It’s difficult to draw moral conclusions.”

Recalling how he and his family stayed alive, Wacs commented, “The only thing I keep saying, is that the only thing you can do in situations like that, is to be optimistic.”

The siblings will share their story on November 10th at the Simon Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, marking the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht. This follows an art opening on Thursday, November 7th, at the Museum of Tolerance New York, which will host a month-long showing of Wac’s artwork. The exhibit, “A Gathering Storm: The Vienna Papers, 1938” is a collection that draws inspiration from the official documents associated with their lives and identities.

Milky PinUps: AurumLight Studio Splashes Milk On Models, We Begin Search For Cookies (PHOTOS)

We’ll never cry over spilt milk again.

AurumLight Studio, a London-based conceptual photography business, is making a splash with its fresh take on old pin-up photos. Pouring milk on models sounds easy — but photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz captures the liquid in such a way that it looks like a perfectly crafted dress.

Plenty of his galleries are more serious in nature, but the former architect thought he’d have some fun with these ladies, who he’s putting in a calendar — thankfully — coming soon.

“This time I thought it will be cool to approach the liquid theme in a more relaxed and funny way,” Wieczorkiewicz writes on his blog. “So we threw some colors into the mix and came up with a personal Milky PinUp tribute to my favorite pin-up style artists.”

You can learn how to Milky PinUp, too. He’ll be touring in the United States in 2014 to teach his wholesome craft. In the meantime, check out his Facebook page, his high-resolution shots, and the photos below.
