California College of Ayurveda Offers Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda Training
by BWW News Desk - Apr 23, 2014

In our Western culture, many people use Yoga asana as a stretching tool to keep the body limber and agile. To this extent there is no better practice. Traditionally, however, Yoga postures are a part of a much greater spiritual journey. Yoga is a complete science of helping the mind to become clear or pure. A clear mind is not affected by stress and a clear mind produces a healthy body. While the health benefits of a mind at peace are irrefutable, what is even more exciting is that a person with a clear mind is also aware of their deeper spiritual nature or connection. In Ayurveda, all disease is considered the end result of forgetting our spiritual nature. Hence, Ayurveda and Yoga strive to help a person re-connect to their true nature through direct experience. The program will be taught at the Yoga Camp in Val Morin, Canada on August 2014. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 22, 2014

CEDAR PARK, Texas, April 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Fallbrook Technologies Inc. (Fallbrook), inventor of the NuVinci® continuously variable planetary (CVP) transmission technology, announced today the appointment of Robin E. Grey as Chief Financial Officer, effective April 28, 2014. She replaces John K. Penver, who resigned for personal reasons effective February 15, 2014. 'Robin has an extensive background in managing all aspects of financial operations, including experience in debt and equity financing,' said William G. Klehm, III, Fallbrook's Chairman and CEO. 'We are delighted to have her join our team, particularly at a time of expanding growth for Fallbrook.'   Grey most recently served as the Chief Financial Officer for The Community Foundation of Boulder County in Boulder, Colo., a public foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life for people in Boulder County. At the Community Foundation, she was responsible for all accounting, payroll, business insurance and working capital requirements for the Foundation.   From 1999 to 2013, she held a series of financial positions with increasing responsibility at Level 3 Communications, Inc., a Fortune 500 company that provides local, national and global communications services to enterprise, government and carrier customers and has annual revenues of more than $6.3 billion. At Level 3, Grey began as Assistant Treasurer and subsequently became Senior Vice President, Investor Relations, then Senior Vice President and Treasurer, planning and directing all aspects of the company's debt and equity capital markets activities. This included raising more than $20B of capital, including structured debt-for-debt and debt-for-equity exchanges, tender offers and refinancings. In her last position at Level 3 as Senior Vice President, Strategic Asset Investment Group, she started a new team that was responsible for directing global network investments to expand the company's reach and accelerate on-net growth supporting existing and new customers.   At the start of her career, Grey worked as a financial analyst at Tele-Communications Inc., where she ultimately served as Manager, Corporate Finance. She then served as Assistant Treasurer of Sprint PCS in Kansas City, MO, from 1996 to 1999, when she joined Level 3.   Grey holds a BS, Finance and an MBA, Finance from the University of Colorado.    About Fallbrook Technologies Fallbrook's NuVinci continuously variable planetary (CVP) technology can improve the performance and efficiency of machines that use a transmission, including bicycles, electric vehicles, automobiles, off-highway vehicles, stationary equipment, wind turbines and others. The NuVinci technology is Transforming Gears into Spheres™ by using a set of rotating balls between the input and output components of a transmission. Tilting the balls changes their contact diameters and varies the speed ratio. Compared to other continuously variable transmission technologies, the NuVinci technology is less complex, scales and packages more easily, costs less to manufacture, and facilitates achieving optimum performance.   The N360 continuously variable bicycle drivetrain and the Harmony automatic electronic shifting system, which utilizes the N360, are Fallbrook's current commercially available products for the bicycle industry. Since their introduction, Fallbrook's cycling products have become a standard component on more than 60 major bicycle brands throughout Europe. Outside of cycling, the NuVinci technology offers companies the flexibility to design and produce next-generation products that are better-tailored to their unique business, market, and competitive requirements. Fallbrook's NuVinci CVP technology is now being developed for commercialization in several other applications. For example, major automotive transmission suppliers have licensed NuVinci technology for the development of automotive class drivetrains, and a market-leading supplier has licensed the technology and is developing NuVinci CVP transmissions for electric and gasoline light vehicle applications. NuVinci CVP technology can be configured to replace multiple planetary gears, providing dramatic performance improvement in a smaller package and at a lower cost. Fallbrook has built an extensive portfolio of over 600 patents and patent applications worldwide. For more information, visit www.fallbrooktech.com. (more...)

BWW Reviews: WE WILL ROCK YOU at PPAC Lives Up to Its Title
by Robert Barossi - Apr 16, 2014

It's not every rock band or musical act that could successfully create musical based on its many widely varying songs. There has to be a certain uniformity, power and resonance to the music, all of the music, carrying through many songs, rather than just one or two 'greatest hits.' And they have to be songs that can be strung together to create a cohesive whole that works as a musical with a plot, story, characters, etc. If there's any proof that it can be done, and done smashingly well, it's found in We Will Rock You, the 'rock theatrical' created through the combination of British writer Ben Elton and the music of Queen.

The Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble Presents Its Season Finale, 5/11
by BWW News Desk - Apr 15, 2014

Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble's season finale celebrates musical learning with programming that makes connections between classical and contemporary composers. The concert begins with two wind ensemble arrangements of Bach's music: “Who Puts His Trust in God Most Just” (arr. James Croft), originally a chorale for four parts, and “Fugue in G Minor” (arr. Lucien Calliet), a masterful combination of counterpoint and Harmony. Next is Eric Whitacre's “Sleep,” a smooth composition with drawn-out harmonies inspired by Robert Frost's poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” The concert concludes with Frank Ticheli's Symphony No. 2, which was composed in 2003 as a tribute to James Croft, director of bands at Florida State University. Its movements—“Shooting Stars,” “Dreams Under a New Moon” and “Apollo Unleashed”—are an evocation of the heavens, tying back to the concert's first number, not just with the dedication to Croft, but with a brilliant finale that quotes the chorale work by Bach. Tickets are $12 with general admission seating. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Good Theater's UNDERWATER GUY Lifts Performance Art to the Poetic
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Apr 14, 2014

Portland's Good Theater closed its season with a highly original and poetic premiere of Stephen Underwood's multi-media performance piece, Underwater Guy. Underwood's play uses video, music, lights, scenery, and a single actor/narrator to recount the protagonist's lifelong obsession with diving, underwater exploration and photography. Part documentary, part dramatic monologue with movement, the rapid shifts in the modes of communication prove stimulating, sometimes surprising, but always engaging. For in Underwood's play, water is more than a habitat or a passion; it is a metaphor for his life's journey, and as such, the piece takes on a deeper significance and resonance. (more...)
