Sleep and Baby Care Basics is the perfect class for working moms and dads-to-be who can’t make our Sleep Basics and Baby Basics classes during the workday. This special class is offered at a convenient time for working families and combines the need-to-know information from both of these classes. This class provides an overview of everything you need to know about caring for your infant. We will cover normal newborn appearances, bathing, diapering, soothing techniques and how to read your baby’s cues. You will also learn about the importance of sleep (for both parents and baby!) and strategies to improve your baby’s daytime and nighttime sleep. Our hope is that with this class we can help dispel myths about sleep and help you and your family get adequate, safe sleep. We will discuss the science behind sleep and the implications it has on the breastfeeding relationship, in addition to addressing common obstacles to getting enough sleep and how to solve them. This is a great class to take before your baby comes so you know what to expect in the early weeks of your baby’s life. The instructor is one of our experienced IBCLCs.

Exhibition – Other Worlds of Imagination and Wonder

 

Date: September 6, 2016

Time: 10:00am to 7:00pm

Venue: Brentwood Arts Exchange

Address:

3901 Rhode Island Avenue

Brentwood, MD 20722

From: Brentwood Arts Exchange at Gateway Arts Center

Website: Click to visit the site

Curated by Jennifer Lindsay, Other Worlds of Imagination brings together two sculptors, Laurel Lukaszewski and Joseph A. Corcoran to create site-specific and collaborative installations as well as new sculptures for the Brentwood Arts Exchange. Lukaszewski’s hand-built and extruded sculptural elements demonstrate a wholly contemporary perspective on Japan’s ageless aesthetic influence. These forms range from abstract and spontaneous to exacting and naturalistically detailed. The unglazed black, white, or delicately hand-tinted clays she favors ground her spontaneous compositions with a graphic, almost documentary quality. In the spare and elegant surface details that make each of her forms uniquely evocative, and in the contemplative spaces she creates from her arrangements, Lukaszewski transfixes, preserves, and displays experiences and observations at the moment of their utmost intensity and poignancy. A master of the transmission and diffusion of light through glass, Corcoran blends clear and opaque glass to create complex color effects that can be brilliant and singing as well as subtle and mysterious. Guiding the blown glass as it reacts with the air during the cooling process and forming it into his signature sensuous, organic shapes, Corcoran then assembles spectacular systems of one-of-a-kind elements delicately balanced on one another, sometimes supported by sculptural, hand- forged armatures. Grounded in the language of organic abstraction, his sculptures suggest a complex, evolving, and interdependent biology – at once familiar and strange – dynamic, yet premised on shifting definitions of fragility and strength. The works on view, from objects to installations, reveal how both artists allow the essential properties and even the unpredictable characteristics of ceramics and glass to guide their synthesis of form, selection, arrangement, and narrative content in the expression of the whole.

Exhibition – Other Worlds of Imagination and Wonder

 

Date: September 7, 2016

Time: 10:00am to 7:00pm

Venue: Brentwood Arts Exchange

Address:

Brentwood, MD 20722

From: Brentwood Arts Exchange at Gateway Arts Center

Website: Click to visit the site

Curated by Jennifer Lindsay, Other Worlds of Imagination brings together two sculptors, Laurel Lukaszewski and Joseph A. Corcoran to create site-specific and collaborative installations as well as new sculptures for the Brentwood Arts Exchange. Lukaszewski’s hand-built and extruded sculptural elements demonstrate a wholly contemporary perspective on Japan’s ageless aesthetic influence. These forms range from abstract and spontaneous to exacting and naturalistically detailed. The unglazed black, white, or delicately hand-tinted clays she favors ground her spontaneous compositions with a graphic, almost documentary quality. In the spare and elegant surface details that make each of her forms uniquely evocative, and in the contemplative spaces she creates from her arrangements, Lukaszewski transfixes, preserves, and displays experiences and observations at the moment of their utmost intensity and poignancy. A master of the transmission and diffusion of light through glass, Corcoran blends clear and opaque glass to create complex color effects that can be brilliant and singing as well as subtle and mysterious. Guiding the blown glass as it reacts with the air during the cooling process and forming it into his signature sensuous, organic shapes, Corcoran then assembles spectacular systems of one-of-a-kind elements delicately balanced on one another, sometimes supported by sculptural, hand- forged armatures. Grounded in the language of organic abstraction, his sculptures suggest a complex, evolving, and interdependent biology – at once familiar and strange – dynamic, yet premised on shifting definitions of fragility and strength. The works on view, from objects to installations, reveal how both artists allow the essential properties and even the unpredictable characteristics of ceramics and glass to guide their synthesis of form, selection, arrangement, and narrative content in the expression of the whole.

The World AntiMicrobial Resistance Congress gathers key stakeholders from government, funding agencies, pharma, academia, hospitals, and payers to discuss this urgent need for new antibiotics. President Obama has outlined his 5-year action plan to fight AMR and is seeking to double the AMR funding to USD 1.2B, but the bigger challenge is how to deliver these actions.

This 2-day conference presents solutions through key notes, case study presentations, expert opinion, roundtable discussions and invites key influencers such as BARDA, NIH, FDA, grant agencies, pharma, hospitals, and academia, in the AMR discussion.

We understand the importance of focused learning and enhanced networking so we have put together a conference that brings together innovative formats with 5+ hours of assisted networking during 40-minute coffee breaks and 1 ½ hour lunch breaks. We end Day One with a Cocktail Hour so that you can network with your peers in a more relaxed setting!

If you are developing an antibiotic or provide solutions to develop antibiotics, prevent spread of AMR, monitor it in real time or have alternative ways to fund antibiotic R and D, don’t miss out. Be sure to join us at the World AMR Congress this September.

Exhibition – Other Worlds of Imagination and Wonder

 

Date: September 15, 2016

Time: 10:00am to 7:00pm

Venue: Brentwood Arts Exchange

Address:

3901 Rhode Island Avenue

Brentwood, MD 20722

From: Brentwood Arts Exchange at Gateway Arts Center

Website: Click to visit the site

Curated by Jennifer Lindsay, Other Worlds of Imagination brings together two sculptors, Laurel Lukaszewski and Joseph A. Corcoran to create site-specific and collaborative installations as well as new sculptures for the Brentwood Arts Exchange. Lukaszewski’s hand-built and extruded sculptural elements demonstrate a wholly contemporary perspective on Japan’s ageless aesthetic influence. These forms range from abstract and spontaneous to exacting and naturalistically detailed. The unglazed black, white, or delicately hand-tinted clays she favors ground her spontaneous compositions with a graphic, almost documentary quality. In the spare and elegant surface details that make each of her forms uniquely evocative, and in the contemplative spaces she creates from her arrangements, Lukaszewski transfixes, preserves, and displays experiences and observations at the moment of their utmost intensity and poignancy. A master of the transmission and diffusion of light through glass, Corcoran blends clear and opaque glass to create complex color effects that can be brilliant and singing as well as subtle and mysterious. Guiding the blown glass as it reacts with the air during the cooling process and forming it into his signature sensuous, organic shapes, Corcoran then assembles spectacular systems of one-of-a-kind elements delicately balanced on one another, sometimes supported by sculptural, hand- forged armatures. Grounded in the language of organic abstraction, his sculptures suggest a complex, evolving, and interdependent biology – at once familiar and strange – dynamic, yet premised on shifting definitions of fragility and strength. The works on view, from objects to installations, reveal how both artists allow the essential properties and even the unpredictable characteristics of ceramics and glass to guide their synthesis of form, selection, arrangement, and narrative content in the expression of the whole.

By William Shakespeare Directed by Alan Paul

The most famous love story in the world and one of Shakespeare’s early poetic masterworks, Romeo & Juliet follows two star-crossed lovers from love at first sight to eternal life hereafter. Caught tragically between two feuding families, alike in dignity and in enmity, Shakespeare’s immortal young lovers try to fashion a new world amid the violence of the old, but cataclysmic choices and tragic twists propel them toward a final confrontation with fate. After helming the highly-lauded productions of Kiss Me, Kate and Man of La Mancha, Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul directs his first Shakespeare production at STC—what is sure to be a spectacular, contemporary and heart-rending vision.

Piano-playing political satirist Mark Russell returns to Ford’s Theatre for one night only, Monday, September 19. With impeccable timing, twinkling eyes and shock-of-recognition insights into American politics, Russell draws materials from the pomposity of public life. Long before Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart, there was Mark Russell, daring to joke and sing of the often absurd political processes. Russell’s unique brand of comedy earned him the Mark Twain Award for political comedy and has made him a popular favorite on PBS.

Course “Statistics for the Non-Statistician” has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.

Overview:

Statistical tools and techniques are very commonly used to help measure and improve the quality of a firm’s process and product. If statistical analysis is not properly performed and/or understood, a firm can run the risk of distributing the kind of product to the market that ultimately fails, resulting in lost time and money. And of course, with statistics, practice makes perfect. During this two-day HIGHLY interactive training program, participants will be given the opportunity to apply statistics learned to real-world example data sets! The program begins by providing a basic overview of the most common statistical tools and terms. The course covers the use of statistical software packages and the role of software in statistical analysis and statistical process control. Areas addressed include how to use statistics to properly trend data, support the annual product review, justify process changes and set product specifications. By the end of day two, course participants will have acquired the skills necessary to design a statistically sound sampling plan that helps them comply with FDA APR requirements. Throughout the duration of this intimate, hands-on course, participants will be able to interact with both an expert instructor and their peers.

The most famous love story in the world and one of Shakespeare’s early poetic masterworks, Romeo & Juliet follows two star-crossed lovers from love at first sight to eternal life hereafter. Caught tragically between two feuding families, alike in dignity and in enmity, Shakespeare’s immortal young lovers try to fashion a new world amid the violence of the old, but cataclysmic choices and tragic twists propel them toward a final confrontation with fate.

After helming the highly-lauded productions of Kiss Me, Kate and Man of La Mancha, Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul directs his first Shakespeare production at STC—what is sure to be a spectacular, contemporary and heart-rending vision.

Curated by Jennifer Lindsay, Other Worlds of Imagination brings together two sculptors, Laurel Lukaszewski and Joseph A. Corcoran to create site-specific and collaborative installations as well as new sculptures for the Brentwood Arts Exchange. Lukaszewski’s hand-built and extruded sculptural elements demonstrate a wholly contemporary perspective on Japan’s ageless aesthetic influence. These forms range from abstract and spontaneous to exacting and naturalistically detailed. The unglazed black, white, or delicately hand-tinted clays she favors ground her spontaneous compositions with a graphic, almost documentary quality. In the spare and elegant surface details that make each of her forms uniquely evocative, and in the contemplative spaces she creates from her arrangements, Lukaszewski transfixes, preserves, and displays experiences and observations at the moment of their utmost intensity and poignancy. A master of the transmission and diffusion of light through glass, Corcoran blends clear and opaque glass to create complex color effects that can be brilliant and singing as well as subtle and mysterious. Guiding the blown glass as it reacts with the air during the cooling process and forming it into his signature sensuous, organic shapes, Corcoran then assembles spectacular systems of one-of-a-kind elements delicately balanced on one another, sometimes supported by sculptural, hand- forged armatures. Grounded in the language of organic abstraction, his sculptures suggest a complex, evolving, and interdependent biology – at once familiar and strange – dynamic, yet premised on shifting definitions of fragility and strength. The works on view, from objects to installations, reveal how both artists allow the essential properties and even the unpredictable characteristics of ceramics and glass to guide their synthesis of form, selection, arrangement, and narrative content in the expression of the whole.

Corcoran to create site-specific and collaborative installations as well as new sculptures for the Brentwood Arts Exchange. Lukaszewski’s hand-built and extruded sculptural elements demonstrate a wholly contemporary perspective on Japan’s ageless aesthetic influence. These forms range from abstract and spontaneous to exacting and naturalistically detailed. The unglazed black, white, or delicately hand-tinted clays she favors ground her spontaneous compositions with a graphic, almost documentary quality. In the spare and elegant surface details that make each of her forms uniquely evocative, and in the contemplative spaces she creates from her arrangements, Lukaszewski transfixes, preserves, and displays experiences and observations at the moment of their utmost intensity and poignancy. A master of the transmission and diffusion of light through glass, Corcoran blends clear and opaque glass to create complex color effects that can be brilliant and singing as well as subtle and mysterious. Guiding the blown glass as it reacts with the air during the cooling process and forming it into his signature sensuous, organic shapes, Corcoran then assembles spectacular systems of one-of-a-kind elements delicately balanced on one another, sometimes supported by sculptural, hand- forged armatures. Grounded in the language of organic abstraction, his sculptures suggest a complex, evolving, and interdependent biology – at once familiar and strange – dynamic, yet premised on shifting definitions of fragility and strength. The works on view, from objects to installations, reveal how both artists allow the essential properties and even the unpredictable characteristics of ceramics and glass to guide their synthesis of form, selection, arrangement, and narrative content in the expression of the whole.

The most famous love story in the world and one of Shakespeare’s early poetic masterworks, Romeo & Juliet follows two star-crossed lovers from love at first sight to eternal life hereafter. Caught tragically between two feuding families, alike in dignity and in enmity, Shakespeare’s immortal young lovers try to fashion a new world amid the violence of the old, but cataclysmic choices and tragic twists propel them toward a final confrontation with fate.

After helming the highly-lauded productions of Kiss Me, Kate and Man of La Mancha, Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul directs his first Shakespeare production at STC—what is sure to be a spectacular, contemporary and heart-rending vision.
