Free Educational Workshop for Parents and Teachers of Children with Special Needs in Waltham

Attention! Parents of children who struggle with ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiance, OCD, Anxiety, are on the Autistic Spectrum or have other special needs.

Attend a free community workshop at the Waltham Public Library on Thursday, November 17th from 7:00-8:30pm, at 735 Main Street, Waltham.

After standing room only at Dedham, The Foundation for Wellness Professionals, a 17 year-old, worldwide non-profit organization that promotes wellness and disease prevention programs, presents a free community workshop on Brain Mapping and Drug Free Approaches to ADD and Autism.

Dr. Ross is a Licensed Psychologist with extensive experience in biofeedback treatment, cognitive and behavioral therapy, and behavioral medicine. She received training in EEG assessment from Dr. K.H. Wong, of Children's Hospital Medical Center Boston and has an extensive background in the treatment of individuals with neuropsychiatric and neurobehavioral challenges.

Research has uncovered a brain mapping technique that allows the identification and treatment of educational and behavioral difficulties when nearly every other technique has failed. This is a research based, pain and drug free procedure that pinpoints discordant rhythms in the brain. Once identified, these discordant rhythms can be improved with biofeedback applications. Biofeedback improves the imbalance and promotes healthy brain function. The result is a reduction or even elimination of symptoms.

Come for this free educational session and see before and after brain images of children with remarkable results and hear about the dramatic improvements these children have experienced.

Reagle Music Theatre Presents Singin' In The Rain
Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston will close out their 46th Annual Summer Season with a drenching performance of Singin' In The Rain from August 7-17, 2014 at the Robinson Theatre (617 Lexington St. Waltham, MA). The season will open with Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific (June 12-22) followed by Me and My Girl (July 10-20).

Tickets can be purchased at www.reaglemusictheatre.com, by calling 781-891-5600, or at the theater box office. Singin’ In the Rain [August 7-17] brings back the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s golden age. Adapted from the 1952 film of the same name, Singin’ tells the story of two silent movie actors facing extinction when “talkies” come on the scene. Which of them will survive in the age of sound? Love, deception, and a silent actress’ “not-ready-for-prime-time” speaking voice brings big laughs, big song and dance numbers, and a big, splashy Hollywood ending that really rains on stage! This audience favorite returns to Reagle by popular demand, featuring all the classic songs from the 1952 film, including “Good Morning,” “Make ‘Em Laugh,” Fit As A Fiddle” and “Singin’ in the Rain.” The last time Reagle staged this classic, in 2002, the show won the Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) awards for best musical, best choreographer, and best director. Screenplay and Adaptation by Betty Comden and Adolph Green; Songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed; Based on the MGM film by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc. Presented by Special Arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Healthcare Analytics - The ROI Conundrum

The United States (US) healthcare industry is evolving its use of healthcare data, including data collection (EMR/EHR), data sharing (via health information exchanges) and data analysis.  There are industry champions pioneering frameworks, such as HIMSS EMRAM, in the hope of accelerating healthcare industry standards in the overlapping world of EMR/EHR and analytics.

Given that EMR/EHR deployments have limited ROI by themselves, but require an investment to allow the healthcare industry to achieve the value and well-documented ROI available from data analytics, where are we today?  Is it true that the healthcare industry must commit, culturally, to become a data-driven culture, incented economically to support optimum health at the lowest cost?  Will healthcare industry CFOs and other C-level executives be capable of managing both quality and cost, understanding the interplay between the two?

The Good Doctor
Sunday, November 23, 2014, 8 – 11 p.m.

This Broadway hit is a composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch a fiesty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment and leave the boy more perplexed than ever. In another sketch, a crafty seducer goes to work on a wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first overture. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious and the fun unending.

Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - September
This one-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Agile and Scrum. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means and be ready to move forward with Scrum in your organization. If you already do Scrum and need to spin up more teams or on-board new employees quickly, this is the class for you. Here's a quick list of the topics the class covers: - Comparing traditional approaches and Agile approaches - Conducting iterative planning and development with Scrum, Kanban, and XP - Understanding the roles, events, artifacts, and rules of Scrum - Creating, ordering, and grooming the product backlog - Writing, slicing, and sizing user stories - Working with a Definition of Ready (DoR) and a Definition of Done (DoD) - Planning and tracking releases and sprints - Visualizing progress with taskboards, burndowns, and burnups - Estimating with teams using planning poker and affinity techniques - Understanding team velocity and role metrics - Conducting effective standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives Why a one-day class? It's simple. The goal is to impart the essentials of Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time using an active classroom with simulations and interactive team learning exercises. Who should attend? With rich, useful content, a single day commitment, and a low price, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and make themselves more marketable. Who can't spare a day for that. As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to afford sending team members together and compounding the learning they bring back to their companies. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned to others. Still need convincing? Read what some students have said. "The class was one of the most engaging and cost-effective classes I've taken in 25+ years of work." - Irwin Schreiman, PerkinElmer "WOW!" - Chuck Miksis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Awesome Class!" - Stanley Ivas "Best in Boston to learn Agile/Scrum." - Kanda Alagappan "I can use these principles & practices to take charge of my day today." - Heather Mardis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Very valuable and enjoyable." - Larry Antonuk, Markem-Imaje "Very informative, engaging, and a definite 'go to' for starting or improving agile in your company." - Abhinay Pujari, GMO "Well done. The experience of the instructors is great." - Mike Dunbar, Conexant "If you are planning to or are employing Agile methodology, this class should be required." - Mark Ayasee, VFA Inc. "Excellent class. Covered the fundamentals in a fun interesting manner." - Josh Feldman "It's as good for beginners as for someone who is already using agile." - Oleg Puzatkin, VFA Inc. "Great crash course in agile methodologies." - Jill Nickerson, AlixPartners "It's a great introductory class for understanding the fundamentals of Scrum." - Chandra Kollipara, BA Insight "Definitely worth every penny + would absolutely recommend!" - Colleen Schwartz, AlixPartners "Agile ASAP is a great one day introduction to Agile and Scrum. The teachers are among the best in the world. I brought my entire team with me, and they left excited and ready to bring it to work the next day. I will send more teams to this class, and I'll bring the teachers into my company for on-site training. Don't miss it!" - Richard Kasperowski, Nokia Class Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Class Day Travel Trip: Traffic on I-95/128 is a wildcard and can be "unpleasant" before class time. The best idea is leave early and target getting to classroom between 8:30-8:45. Dress Code: The dress code for the class is casual. Come comfortable and ready to engage in learning. Lunch: A box lunch will be provided. Instructors: The course instructors are from FreeStanding Agility, a team of Agile educators, trainers, and coaches with over 12 years of combined experience, coaching and/or training Agile teams in over 100 different organizations.
