The Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGEThe Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGE
by BWW News Desk - Oct 29, 2014

The notion of 'really useful knowledge' was originated from the workers' awareness of the need for self-education in the early 19th century. In the 1820s and 1830s, workers' organizations in United Kingdom introduced this phrase to describe 'unpractical' knowledge like politics, economics and philosophy, as opposed to what factory owners proclaimed to be “useful knowledge”. Some time earlier capitalists began investing in advancement of their businesses through funding the education of workers in 'applicable' skills and disciplines such as engineering, physics, chemistry or math.

Minnesota native Don Wright, who has completed 84 marathons in the last 11 years - all of them with multiple myeloma - will be a featured participant in the inaugural event of a new partnership fighting to accelerate access to new medications for cancer patients. Don, who is still running marathons even though he is 73 years old and on active treatment for his cancer, was able to get a then-investigational medicine through a clinical trial five years before it was approved for use in the United States. During that time he watched many of his fellow patients succumb to their cancers while waiting for regulatory approval for a new drug they desperately needed. The event, entitled 'Closing the Gap Between Hope and Cures for Cancer Patients,' is intended to create a pathway to accelerate and expand access to investigational medicines for patients with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Knockout Obesity Implements New "KO Program"Knockout Obesity Implements New "KO Program"
by BWW News Desk - Oct 22, 2014

The obesity epidemic is a crisis in poor communities like Brownsville, Brooklyn, where two-thirds of children ages 5 to 11 are overweight. Brooklyn based charity, Knockout Obesity, began implementing its new 'KO Program' this summer, supporting community centers serving low-income neighborhoods. On Saturday, October 25, 2014, at 10:00AM, Knockout Obesity will host a boxing demonstration for Live Light Live Right youth at Brownsville Recreation Center (1555 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn, NY 11212). Currently, Knockout Obesity is hosting its first eight-week pilot program at Bushwick-Hylan Cornerstone located in the Bushwick-Hylan NYCHA Houses. Knockout Obesity provides a course blueprint and professional boxer to teach each class. Boxing equipment is donated to participating community centers, and existing staff is trained to sustain the program year round. Charity founder and Brooklyn restaurateur, Dimitrios Verteouris, personally contributes to the weekly KO classes, engaging youth in a variety of boxing drills and calisthenics, followed by a cool down period and nutrition lesson. A former cast member on Food Network's reality show, Fat Chef, Verteouris lost 82lbs in three months using boxing and his own good eats at Nature's Grill. Earlier this year, Knockout Obesity was the recipient of a $25,000 donation from Two-Time and Two Division Boxing World Champion and NABF Welterweight Champion Paulie 'Magic Man' Malignaggi. Knockout Obesity has been featured by ESPN, The Insider, New York Daily News, New York Post, Metro NY, Hot 97 and more.

Photo Flash: The Big Apple Circus Comes to Town - at a Lincoln Center Near You!Photo Flash: The Big Apple Circus Comes to Town - at a Lincoln Center Near You!
by BWW News Desk - Oct 22, 2014

The Big Apple Circus is a gentle and innocent circus, not aimed at those addicted to keypads or raised on 'Grand Theft Auto', but mostly for those too young to know they might want to shoot and kill virtual villains for their entertainment, or those old enough to recall when they could be entertained by being given a gift of a smile. Notwithstanding that, as circus artists go, these are as good as one sees anywhere. The contortionists will astonish; the quick change artists delight and amaze. The trapeze act will have your heart in your mouth. Still this is unpretentious, one-ring circus presented with modest fuss and bother, and no smoke or mirrors. It will not deafen you with its volume or blind you with its lights - although there are both light and live music - but it will entertain you, as will the animated children around you. (more...)
