Exercise and Motivation Study at Bentley University

Friday, July 1, 2011

By CB Loeb
Contributor

Do you want to exercise more?

I am doing a research study for graduate school on what motivates people to go to the gym. Can you give me five minutes of your time? I've enclosed a link to a super-brief survey and would very much like your input. Even if you don't think this is the right study for you, I would be most obliged if you would forward this link on to anyone you think might be willing to participate.

The study is comprised of two parts: the survey and a focus group. For those kind folks who would like to join the focus group, you will have the opportunity to sign up as part of the survey. If you are not interested, or do not live in Massachusetts, this is fine. Your completion of the survey would be of great value all on its own.

Gratefully yours,

CoP In-person, Buyers Only: Determining, Discussing & Measuring Value (Boston)

This session is for information managers (buyers).

Are you facing increasing demands to demonstrate the ROI of content investments, yet struggling to find the right metrics... or even the vocabulary with which to discuss "value" with stakeholders?

This hands-on session will break down this complex topic into manageable pieces and provide you with practical tools for:

  • Define the Terms: What do stakeholders in your organization mean by "value"?
  • Stakeholder Engagement: How do you develop and foster meaningful discussions with busy stakeholders?
  • Collection Analysis: Can you organize your collection by content type or vendor, and then develop specific measures for those subsets? 
  • Adapt the Process: Apply these same tools and approaches to the cost of staff time and making the business case for new expenditures.

Whether you rely on a full suite of premium products or operate a "DIY" shop, this session will provide you with a wide range of tools and ideas with which to manage and report on value more effectively.

What a recent participant had to say:

"FreePint's thinking is at the head of, and often ahead of, movement/changes in the world of information."

Communities of Practice are open to any organisation with a FreePint Subscription at the Community level or higher. When your registration is approved, you will receive details to attend the meeting.

ALL FOUR WEEKS OF OUR SUMMER PROGRAM FOR KIDS IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. Please email melinda@cirquepassion.com if you would like to be put on the waitlist. 

 

Calling all kids aged 7 - teens! Run away with the circus without actually having to leave home!  Moody Street Circus founders Sacha and Melinda Melina Pavlata are hosting and teaching 4 weeks of circus sessions in their Waltham headquarters.  Each 1/2 day weekly session costs $350.

Moody Street Circus Class size is always deliberately kept low - to 10 kids per session, to maximize safety and ensure individual attention for all kids to learn circus tricks safely on all the equipment.  If your child has trouble following directions or listening to teachers in classes, please don't register them for this program!  Safety is paramount in the circus arts and respectfully listening to your teachers is integral to the highest quality experience for all involved.  If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Melinda Pavlata at Moody Street Circus: 781 893 2491

If you are new to our program, we would like you to contact us by email (melinda@cirquepassion.com) before you register your child so we can find out a little more about them and make sure that 1) the classes are appropriate/a good fit for them and 2) there is room in the week you are choosing.

 

1/2 DAY CIRCUS ARTS PROGRAM WEEKS

JULY 7-11 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m :: $350 SOLD OUT

JULY 14-18 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350 SOLD OUT

JULY 21-25 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350 SOLD OUT

JULY 28 - AUGUST 1 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350 SOLD OUT

Students in the circus summer program will practice light assisted tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola balancing, hula hoop, walking on the rolling globe, low wire tightrope walking, juggling, plate spinning and clowning skills, mini trampoline, and regular trampoline.  They will also learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, web, lyra (aerial hoop), aerial web, aerial hammock and silks.

  • We start the day with a warm-up and fun stretching and strengthening exercises. 
  • We proceed to circus tumbling skills on the tumbling mats, including forward rolls, monkey rolls, wheelbarrows, candlesticks, cartwheels and pyramid formation.
  • Throughout each session we introduce some of Sacha Pavlata's multi-generational circus family clowning skits, including Dead Man, Robin Hood the Coin comedy act, the Newspaper and more. KIds can practice their circus theatrics and comedy.
  • When time permits we will be screening some great circus acts from our private collection.
  • We break into small groups for safe, assisted learning on the aerial equipment.  
  • Students learn and practice at their own pace.
  • Students have practice time on rola bola, rolling globe, low wire, plate spinning, juggling, trampoline.
  • We end the day perfecting skills on the mini-trampoline.
  • We will provide fresh fruit and bagel with cream cheese snacks daily. Please let us know if your child has any allergies or other medical issues.

Program days will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m.  Students can be dropped off at 8:45 a.m.  Campers must be picked up and signed for on time at 12:30 by their parents or care-givers.  Parents are allowed to stay and observe the the program and their kids in action at any time - hang out on our comfy futons and watch what your kids are learning from the sidelines.

Attire:  Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone.  We ask that even parents who are dropping off and picking up their children remove their shoes before coming into the studio space.  Students will work barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire.  Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids. No jewelry or zippers on the equipment.  We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys.  Campers should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks to be worried about your clothing. 

Waiver forms MUST be completed for each camper or participation in the program will not be allowed.

Call Melinda at 781 893 2491 or email her (melinda [at] cirquepassion [dot] com) with any questions. To secure your child's spot in a session, pay online now.  Once you are registered, we will email you waiver forms to fill out and send in for your child. This signed form is required prior to participation in any physical activity at Moody Street Circus studio.

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).

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.

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.
