Why are we doing this?
From what we've seen, graduating students rarely have real-world projects that show off their conceptual and practical design thinking. While students might have nice design aesthetics, User Experience seems to be an afterthought. Knowing how to engage a product's users is a must in our mobile-friendly world. We want to give hard working students an opportunity to wow prospective employers and earn some dollah dollah bills.

Meet with... NCATS

Translation is a team sport and NCATS wants to play

Program Overview:
Meet with the newest institute at the NIH called The National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS). By design, NCATS was formed to transform the translational science process so that new treatments and cures for disease can be delivered to patients faster.

NCATS directly addresses the obstacles scientists face when developing a novel drug, device or other intervention. They are committed to uncovering new technologies and other approaches that could greatly accelerate the development and deployment of solutions that all translational researchers can use.

The NCATS approach is distinct in many ways and has already made a significant impact. Successes include 13 INDs that have been cleared by the FDA, twelve projects have been evaluated in clinical trials, and three agents have gone as far as Phase II human clinical trials. Additionally, third-party investors have licensed seven agents that have been developed through NCATS programs.

Join us to learn more about NCATS and their innovative approach. Following an overview of NCATS' opportunities and key areas of interest, don't miss the opportunity to introduce yourself during the networking lunch. Finally, for those companies who apply online and are approved, one-on-one meetings with NCATS will provide a forum to further discuss your company.

NCATS is seeking to collaborate with companies focusing on translating bench top discoveries to clinical hypothesis testing. Leaders from the life science industry are encouraged to apply today to meet with a representative from NCATS!

notloB Parlour Concerts presents... Mr. Sun

notloB's Fall season, which began in September with Blue Hat, Yeah! and continued in October with the Tannahill Weavers continues in our new 100 seat Washington Square Brookline venue, located on the "C" green line with plenty of street parking and close to over a dozen restaurants!

notloB Parlour Concerts presents... Mr.Sun, a 21st Century string band.... multi-generational hot shots! 
Sunday, November 30, 2014, 8:00pm
Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis*, 1581 Beacon St, Brookline, MA 02446

Mr. Sun is the name of a new musical project: Darol Anger, Joe Walsh on mandolin (Gibson Brothers, himself), Grant Gordy on guitar (David Grisman, Jake Schepps) and Ethan Jodziewicz on acoustic bass.

Legendary fiddler Darol Anger, youthful guitar whiz Grant Gordy, and the redoubtable mandolinist Joe Walsh have all spent their lives moving from place to place, adopting a town and moving on, toward an magisterial knowledge of the physical and psychic terrains that make up the Americas. 
Though each is of a different generation, they've walked similar musical paths, exploring the worlds of bluegrass, blues, jazz, and old-time, on their way to mastery of their chosen instruments. Day by day, they deepen their fluency in the vast swath of dialects that comprise American roots music.

Fiddler, composer, producer and educator, Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent. Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, his Duo with Mike Marshall, and others. He has performed and taught all over the world with musicians such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Bela Fleck, Bill Evans, Edgar Meyer, Bill Frisell, Tony Rice, Tim O’Brien, Anonymous 4, Marin Alsop and the Cabrillo Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, Mark O’Connor, and Stephane Grappelli. Today Darol can be heard on NPR's "Car Talk" theme every week, along with Earl Scruggs, David Grisman and Tony Rice. He was also the violinist on the phenomenally popular Sim City computer games. In addition to performing all over the world, he has recorded and produced scores of important recordings since 1977, is a MacDowell and UCross Fellow, and has received numerous composers’ residencies and grants. He has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks. He is an Associate Professor at the prestigious Berklee School of music. He recently began an ambitious online Fiddle School at His website is

Assuming the guitarist role in the fabled David Grisman Quintet, a spot previously held by such notables as Tony Rice, Mark O’Connor, Frank Vignola and Mike Marshall, has confirmed Grant Gordy as a pre-eminent young voice on acoustic guitar. David Grisman says Gordy “belongs to the new elite of American acoustic practitioners who are pushing the ever-expanding envelope of a musical frontier.”
His work has been widely recognized for its consistent excellence and diversity. He was featured on the covers of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine and Japan’s premier bluegrass magazine, Moonshiner. He was recently written up in Just Jazz Guitar and in 2010, Acoustic Guitar Magazine celebrated his debut CD in its Top Ten Acoustic Albums of the Year.
Gordy’s music has been heard on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered and the prestigious Tiny Desk Concerts. Gordy was selected in 2006 to be one of 15 participants in Carnegie Hall’s “Porous Borders of Music” workshop, led by acoustic music legends Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall. He’s played at Bonnaroo Music Festival, the Montréal Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco and in the UK and Russia.
Gordy was drawn to the guitar early on as a means of expression and intellectual curiosity. Moving to Colorado from Oregon in his 20s opened his horizons as he began playing in a wide range of different styles.
Now based in New York, Gordy’s diverse musical gifts make him the ideal all-around guitarist for one of the world’s most varied musical cities. He’s currently focused on writing new original material, delving headlong into the Big Apple’s extraordinary jazz scene, continuing to tour with Grisman and other collaborators, teaching, and as always, staying open to new musical experiences.
"The young bluegrass/jazz virtuoso’s recording debut is an inspired, ambitious, coherent collection of original compositions for string jazz quartet (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass) that ranks with the best of his employer, David Grisman.” --Acoustic Guitar Magazine

Recognized as one of the foremost contemporary mandolinists, Joe has also won acclaim and affection for his vocals and his talents on a number of other instruments, including guitar and octave mandolin. Legendary fiddler Darol Anger called “one of my favorite musicians on earth.” With two solo albums to his credit, he toured internationally with the award-winning bluegrass supergroup The Gibson Brothers.
In the spring of 2011 Joe released his second solo record, “Sweet Loam,” which features several of his recent compositions and new arrangements of some more familiar songs. An exceptional cast of musicians joins him, including Mike Block, Scott Law, Karl Doty, Lauren Rioux, and Darol Anger, who also co-produced the record with Joe. In the Fall of 2011 Joe returned to Berklee as both a mandolin instructor and as Managing Director of the American Roots Music Program.

Ethan Jodziewicz currently studies at Curtis Institute with Edgar Meyer. Making a musical home for Mr Sun in the space around and between the great American roots styles, this quartet draws from all of their varied backgrounds (Grammy-nominated fiddle music and jazz, award-winning bluegrass, indie/pop grass, new acoustic string bands, and classical music) in crafting a sound all their own, and is drawing all the right kind of attention for their new musical work.

A Matter of Balance: Workshop Leader Training

This one day training will prepare non-health professionals to lead A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls workshops in community settings. Many older adults experience a fear of falling.  People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. 

The workshop is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults and is given for two and a half hours, once a week, for eight weeks in community settings such as senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals.

Subjects covered include: 1) Viewing falls as controllable, 2) Setting goals for increasing activity. 3) Making changes to reduce fall risk at home.4) Exercise to increase strength and balance.

It is the process in which the program is taught that makes it effective. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and success build the participants' confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.

Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

FEES: This training is offered at no charge to Boston-based community organizations and their staffs. For organizations outside of Boston, there is a $70 per person fee. Each participant in the workshop receives a copy of both the instructors and participants manuals.
