Even though people are using the same grapes all over the planet, wine inevitably tastes very different from place to place. This is one of the things that makes wine both awesomely frustrating and completely excellent.
We'll taste wines from all around the planet and try to put our finger on a general flavor profile for each place. This is a great survey class that will give you a wide exposure to different grapes and styles around the wine world.
We will visit every continent, so long as we agree not to count Antarctica. Maybe some day, who knows? Your new favorite wine could be waiting in another hemisphere! 2-hour interactive tasting class followed by wine pairing dinner.

BUILD Greater Boston is gathering a select group of entrepreneurs and business professionals to mentor student business teams in some of Boston’s lowest performing high schools. The BUILD Youth Incubator is where 10th -12th grade BUILD students will start businesses with their Mentors, receive academic support, and prepare for college success.
BUILD is an exciting 4-year college success program that uses entrepreneurship to motivate disengaged students to excel academically, graduate from high school, and succeed in college. BUILD provides real-world business experience which makes school relevant and motivates learning. To help students become college-eligible, BUILD also provides tutoring, test prep, mentoring, and college planning advice. Entrepreneurship is the hook—but college is the goal. Over the past 13 years, 95% of BUILD seniors nationally have been accepted to college, with 88% accepted to 4 year colleges and universities.
Invite friends, family, and colleagues who may be interested in learning more about mentoring with BUILD to join us for this special event!

Art Exhibit by: Simone Alter-Muri, Artist & Alumna R. Bruce Cannon, Artisan
Exhibit August 28 – October 5, 2014
Opening Reception Friday, September 19th from 5-7pm
This newest exhibition integrates the dichotomies of data collection and apathy, and ponders the use and abuse of data collection in our lives. This work reveals depersonalization on multiple levels by juxtaposing similar images derived from a variety of sources. Disparate icons from the genocide of the Holocaust, ubiquitous barcodes, the scanning of irises of the eyes of the poor in India, and environmental concerns suggest their commonality despite apparent differences. The artist and artisan represent these phenomena through their common visual theme of lines and patterns.
As an artist, educator, consultant, and therapist, I embrace creativity in all aspects of my life and work. I create and exhibit multidimensional plain air paintings and conceptual installations about social issues. I am particularly interested in exposing the ways genocides and surveillance occur, and making people aware of these issues through my art. I exhibit my art in galleries locally, regionally, and internationally.
I am currently the Director and Founder of the Undergraduate and Graduate Art Therapy and Art Education Programs at Springfield College, where I have also been a professor in the Visual and Performing Arts department since 1990. My focus as an educator is on art education, art therapy and art history, and their intersection with psychology. I hold a doctorate degree in Creative Behavior/Early Childhood Development, a Master’s Degree in Art Therapy, and a Bachelor’s Degree in both Art and Psychology. I was also the 2003 recipient of the Massachusetts Art Educator in Higher Education Award. I have studied art at the Museum School in Boston, The Art Institute of Boston (AIB), Massachusetts College of Art, the University of Massachusetts and with various artists.
I train educators and allied health professionals about the applications and benefits of art therapy and art as healing. I also lecture and lead workshops on numerous subjects related to art therapy, art education and creativity.
R. Bruce Cannon
I am an artisan and a master woodworker. For over twenty-five years I have built aesthetic and environmentally friendly furniture. Known widely for my cabinetry I have also worked in bringing natures beauty into ones environment as a landscaper and a gardener.
I have specialized in working with visual artists helping artists’ problem solve and realize their dreams. I am a consultant regarding the aesthetics of a work of art, brainstorming and envisioning the final product. To this end I make frames, pedestals, and alternative pieces that augment and complete the presentation of even the most conceptual art work. I have worked for museums, galleries and created appropriate shipping containers. I am a skilled craftsperson and create my own line of crafts from the finest woods. I have years of experience that range from construction to remodeling and include being an architectural mill worker, to a mechanic who built engines. I have extensive experience designing and building spaces especially one of a kind rooms that highlight the purposes of the customer.
An estimated, 50,409 soldiers were wounded in action and 239,174 were diagnosed with PTSD.
In one recent study, 15 percent of all Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans were found to have suffered a traumatic brain injury. According to Veterans Health Administration data collected by Veterans for Common Sense, from 2002 through December 2013, approximately 338,294 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who came for care at a VA facility were diagnosed with PTSD. Diagnosed rates of depression and PTSD may represent just one half of all actual cases given veterans’ inability or reluctance to be assessed or treated or their treatment outside the VA system. http://costsofwar.org/article/us-and-allied-wounded
The statistics are staggering and they affect all of us. This is our opportunity to bring hope and independence back into the lives of many veterans and their families who are living with PTSD every day.
Specially trained service dogs can help adults with psychiatric disabilities; such as PTSD for our soldiers returning from unthinkable situations in war. These dogs assist our brave men and women in a way that no other form of therapy can.
Little Angels Service Dogs are trained to alert by pawing at the leg of their handler when they sense the chemical changes of a panic attack or flashback, helping the handler to refocus on the dog. These dogs are trained to go around corners ahead of the handler, and to assist with creating larger personal boundaries in crowded public places. With the dogs help our soldiers are able to better reintegrated back home.
Little Angels Service Dogs is a charitable, non-profit 501c3 corporation that reaches across all of the United States partnering service dogs with the disabled.

Civil rights activists. Jewish thinkers and educators. Heads of Jewish non-profits. Student organizers. We're bringing all these people together -- voices from every part of the political spectrum to discuss, debate, and learn together about the most pressing issues facing the American Jewish community today. Increasingly, young Jews are increasingly finding that we don't have a home in the communities that purport to represent us. Open Hillel seeks to change this. We want a Jewish community where the full diversity of Jewish views on Israel-Palestine is accepted and celebrated. We want a Jewish community where vigorous discussion, respectful debate, and free discourse are the norm. We want a Jewish community that all Jews can feel included in, not just those who pass a political litmus test. We've campaigned for over a year for Hillel to be such a community. And now, for the first time, we're modeling what that community could be like -- with the Open Hillel Conference. This conference will create a space for open conversation on Israel/Palestine and other issues of importance to the Jewish community, without external restrictions. Because Hillel International limits the kind of conversations we can have, we decided to show the limitless potential of a conversation not bogged down by "standards of partnership" and the political whims of big donors. We are inviting left-wingers, right-wingers, Zionists, Anti-Zionists, Non-Zionists, two-staters, one-staters and everyone in between or outside of that spectrum to share their thoughts and ideas on Israel-Palestine. And we'll look beyond the Middle East as well, discussing issues facing our Jewish communities here in America. FOR THE PRESS: Most sessions at the conference are open to the press. If you are coming as a member of the press, you must register, but you may register for free. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for access to free registration. CONFIRMED SPEAKERS: (Note: these are the speakers whose names have been publicly announced as of September 11th, and may not be up to date.

Cohen, professor and sociologist of American Jewry Shaul Magid, professor of Jewish thought FREEDOM SUMMER VETERANS (Jewish activists who participated in the American civil rights movement): Dorothy Zellner, Ira Grupper, Larry Rubin Peter Beinart, professor and journalist Sarah Turbow, director of J Street U Rebecca Vilkomerson, executive director of Jewish Voice for Peace Mark LeVine, professor and author LOGISTICS: TIME & LOCATION: The conference will take place at Harvard University, from 8 pm on Saturday, October 11th (after Shabbat ends) to 5 pm on Monday, October 13th (Columbus Day).
