For almost three decades, Frank Lotz has been cooking and teaching people how to integrate the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda into their daily lifestyle.  In his book, Heavenly Cooking with Ayurveda, Lotz combines many simple recipes that the home cook can easily use with detailed explanations of spices, Vedic principles of health, ayurvedic food supplements, eating in harmony with the season, ideal Vedic daily routine, and tidbits of wisdom from his Grandma Minna.

Lotz's main body of ayurvedic knowledge comes from having studied with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for many years and learning ayurvedic cooking under a master chef in Seelisberg, Switzerland.  In addition, he has a unique way of relating this very different approach to eating and lifestyle, moreso than any other person I've met.

When you listen to the discussion Kathy DuBois and Steve Boss held with Frank, pay attention to how he relates the ayurvedic body-type principles to different types of cars.  His approach to the entire subject is also very simple.  According to Frank, if your food experience brings happiness, it's ayurveda.

For most writers, going from concept to finished product is a mostly solitary pursuit, and getting across the finish line is largely dependent on your own efforts.  With the sefl-publishing technology available today, you don't necessarily need anyone else in order to publish your work. But for a screenwriter, getting the script finished is only half the battle - if that.  What does it take to get a movie made?

Join Monica and Caroline on Writers' Voices
as they talk to Caterina Titus, of www.rubystarproductions.com to learn more about the screenwriter's journey.  Caty is the co-writer of “Pyaar” - a social political feature film (with Stuart Tanner,) and romantic dramedy "Between Worlds" (with actor/director Ruben Pla.) Her goal is to create films that address the issues of globalization. For the last five years she has been developing a valuable network of contacts in the film industry as she focuses on getting her movies made.

This week's feature is the soulfull folk rock of Mike Mangione and The Union. I'll be playing tracks from their brand new and unreleased album.

They will be performing at Cafe Paradiso on Friday March 8th. 

Well the night’s busted open on those two lanes to anywhere
There’s a kiss on my cheek and it burns so I leave it there
I step on the gas and something begins to shake

It’s my heart and it’s singing, boy, this is more than you can take

“This is ‘fun Shakespeare’—-light, witty, and fast-paced; a play full of fools, knaves, clowns, scoundrels, cross-dressing tricksters, nerds in love, and a crusty drunken uncle named—-we kid you not—Sir Toby Belch,” said Dr. Jeff Martinek, professor of English at Iowa Wesleyan. “If you have never seen Shakespeare performed live or have doubts about it being your cup of tea, we urge you to give this one a try.”

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and there will be live acoustic music and a pre-show speech by the cast in the half-hour prior to the performance.

The Rules by Allen Cobb 

 

Allen Cobb returns to Writers' Voices this week to tell Monica and Caroline about his latest publishing venture - "The Rules for the game of life" - A novel, in which secrets are revealed.

According to Allen, "t's a little comical, a little cosmic, and hopefully a fun read. As many of you know, I've been collecting a strange set of "rules" — with tongue firmly in cheek — and I finally succumbed to repeated requests to "make them into a book." It quickly turned into an unexpected little novel, one which pretty much wrote itself. (Which is probably a Good Thing.)"

Allen is also a poet, a sound artist, and a publisher so no doubt this will be a far-ranging conversation on Writers' Voices!

Francis Thicke's five year term on the The National Organic Standards Board started on January 24th, 2013, but his dedication to organic farming began over 30 years ago. He and his wife Susan operate a 160-head, certified organic dairy on 450 acres in Fairfield. Francis previously served as a National Program Leader for Soil Science at the USDA Cooperative Extension Service, and he's been active in many environmental organizations. The Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service named him the 2012 Farmer of the Year. 

At 3 PM on Saturday, April 27th in the Cambridge Room of the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center, Francis will participate in a free readers theater production of Farmscape: The Changing Rural Environment. This play was written by students in Mary Swander's Iowa State MFA writing class. Mary is Iowa's poet laureate, and she'll facilitate audience discussion after the performance. She'll also present a free keynote talk, "Celebrating Local Community," at 7:30 PM at the Fairfield Public Library. Both these free events are part of the EcoFairfield Festival.

To learn more about organic standards, rural issues, Farmscape, and Francis Thicke, tune in to this episode of The Studio with Cheryl.

Marcy LuikartNot too long after she met her husband Ralph, author Marcy Luikart (formerly Woolf) helped him fulfill a lifelong dream of building a raft and floating down the Mississippi River.

Inspired by that journey, the former Fairfielder, now living in Santa Barbara, wrote "River Braids," the story of a former midwesterner who returns to his roots along the Mississippi River and discovers the real history behind the family story of his grandfather Joe on the 1904 Olympic rowing team.  The tale weaves back and forth between the modern day and the St. Louis Worlds' Fair and Olympics of 1904.

This is Marcy's second appearance on Writers' Voices. As one of our first guests, in 2006 Marcy discussed her success with getting stories published in literary magazines. "River Braids" is her first published novel.

Poor Man's Feast cover First up is James Beard Award-winning author Elissa Altman.  Her newest book is Poor Man's Feast:  A Love Story of Comfort, Desire, and the Art of Simple Cooking.  I think you can understand Elissa's take on food by reading this excerpt from her website: 

 So, what is Poor Man’s Feast really about?
It’s about sustenance in the face of pretense.
It’s about authenticity in the face of the artificial.
It’s about simplicity in the face of the tarted-up.
It’s about kindness in the face of the rude.
It’s about storytelling — mine, my family’s, yours, your family’s — and how those stories are inextricably bound up with what we feed ourselves and those we love, what we eat at times of joy, sorrow, delight, surprise, fear, and sadness. And it’s always about slowing down a little bit.

Those baths weren't easy for her mom, Vivian Lawson, to arrange in a farmhouse that relied on an outhouse and had no running water.

With help from friends and relatives, Bode has turned her family history into a poignant, self-published children's book, My Mean Mom. It includes an informative historical afterward and includes a page of activities children can do to further their understanding of this era of our country's medical history.

David Bedrick Mainstream medicine tends to focus on treating symptoms of illness, often quite  successfully, but many people have turned to alternative medicine to address the root causes of disease.  Similarly, mainstream psychology tends to treat unwanted behaviors, feelings and beliefs as symptoms of an illness, and success in treatment is measured by the ability to alleviate the symptoms. Talking Back

Instead, what if we ask:  what is your psyche trying to tell you?  David Bedrick, author of “Talking Back to Dr. Phil: Alternatives to Mainstream Psychology” proposes that a love-based approach that looks beneath the symptoms can yield some surprising answers.  Join Monica and Caroline with the author this week on Writers’ Voices on KRUU 100.1 FM at 1 pm Friday, June 14 and 8 am on Monday June 17 to learn more.

Dr. Rhoda Orme-Johnson served as chair of the Department of Literature and Languages at MIU and was an extremely popular professor.  Her contribution to "A Symphony of Silence" was an interview that Ellis transcribed into essay form, resulting in a very personal description of Dr. Orme-Johnson's inner and outer lives.

- Writers' Voices - 20130726 - Suzanne Young

58:09 minutes (53.25 MB) Stereo 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

Suzanne YoungIt took high school teacher Suzanne Young five contributions to "the novel graveyard" before she wrote the first novel that sold. On Writers' Voices this week, Young describes what kept her writing and how she fianlly broke through to publishing success. Since 2010, she has had six young adult and crossover books published by three different major publishers, with three more on the way.

Her most recent novel, "The Program," from Simon Pulse, deals with the sobering reality of teen The Programsuicide.  Motivated by memories of her own troubled adolescence, Young originally set out to write a true-to-life novel on the subject, but soon realized that the story could reach a broader audience and have more impact with a futuristic, slightly distyopian setting, where teen suicide has reached epidemic proportions.   

 "The Program" is the government's attempt to prevent suicide by closely monitoring teenagers' behavior.  At the first sign of depression, the targeted teens are instituionalized and "cured" - but with unforunate side effects. The ultimate theme of the book is hope, and Young recounts the effect the story has already had on readers, and her hopes that the novel will help bring the subject out into the open.

Writers' Voices has also had a request from a listener to find out what Writers' Groups are operating in Fairfield and if any are open to new members, or to put people together to form a new group.  We will do a show on writers' groups in the near future - in the meantime, we'd love to hear from you if you are a member of a group - please email Monica at show@writersvoices.com.

59:50 minutes (82.17 MB) Stereo 44kHz 192Kbps (CBR)

The Gift of AdversityJoin Monica and Caroline this week as we welcome Dr. Norman Rosenthal back to Writers' Voices.  Throughout his storied career as a research psychiatrist, Dr. Rosenthal has searched outside the box for ways to help people struggling with depression and other mood disorders.  This search led him to diagnose and name seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and develop light therapy as a wonderfully effective treatment while at the National Institute of Mental Health.  He went on to write several books that brought alternative, non-pharmaceutical treatments straight into public awareness, including "Winter Blues," "St. John's Wort:The Herbal Way to Feeling Good," and, most recently, the New York Times bestseller, "Transcendence," which explores the power of Transcendental Meditation in healing and transformation.

In his new book, "The Gift of Adversity: The Unexpected Benefits of Life's Difficulties, Setbacks and Imperfections," Dr. Rosenthal shares personal stories of adversity, as well as case studies and lessons he has learned from his heroes. Less scientific than his previous books, "The Gift of Adversity" is part memoir, part inspiration, and thoroughly enjoyable to read.

Mark Leibovich FEATURED SEGMENT | Live call in w/ NY Times' Mark Leibovich discussing his best-selling book THIS TOWN

Couldn't be more excited about this week's show. I'm talking with one of the surest voices in the gilded swampland of our nation's capitol, Mark Leibovich, who is the national chief political correspondent of New York Times Magazine.

His book THIS TOWN is a #1 New York Times bestseller and certainly the hottest political book of the summer. He skewers the gilded partisans on both sides of the aisle who are surprisingly bipartisan when it comes to serving their own well-paid self interests. Not a pretty picture.

Leibovich has a long career inside the Beltway, working at the Washington Post, where I first met him, before joining the Times. He also worked at the storied San Jose Mercury News before joining the Post in 1997. It's a live call in. Don't miss it.

Double Double book cover For 10 years a special book project eluded famed mystery writer Martha Grimes' grasp. In 2012 she garnered the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award, and she's published at least one book a year for the last 30 years. Not until June 4, 2013, though, did she succeed in publishing a nonfiction book she'd pondered for years. Both Martha and her son Ken Grimes are alcoholics who've been sober for over two decades. Their experiences with alcoholism and their paths to sobriety differ radically, and that's one of the many intriguing facets of their inspiring memoir, Double Double: a Dual Memoir of Alcoholism.

In "The Best of All Possible Worlds," just published this month, Verney combines story-telling, philosophy, and the history of the TM movement into a unique and engaging novel.  Anyone who attended TM teacher training courses in Switzerland or learned to meditate at Amherst in the early 70's may just recognize pieces of their own personal history in this novel, while younger meditators, and even non-meditators with with no connection to those events, will get a much deeper perspective of what all the fuss was about.

Doug Johnson Doug Johns, Vice President of Global Marketing and Product Management for Precor, has more than 13 years of experience in marketing and business, but it’s the past five years he’s spent at Precor that he finds the most fulfilling. An avid distance runner, Doug appreciates working for a company that helps people improve their quality of life by providing products that encourage living an active and healthy lifestyle. He graduated from the United States Air Force Academy and received his MBA from Wharton Business School. Besides staying active, Doug enjoys spending time with his wife and two children.

 

More Background on Doug

 

His first experience with Precor was in 1988 when his parents bought him a Precor rowing machine. He's worked for Precor for five years and doesn't ever want to leave. Previous work experience includes marketing roles at Campbell Soup. Doug thinks that sometimes, the benefits of exercise beyond weight loss, are overlooked. He says:

”Thin is different from fit. There are skinny smokers with bad diets that end up having heart surgery. I’ve seen them - I had heart surgery in 2008 and my time in the recovery ward strengthened my passion to 'evangelize' for fitness."  He believes networked fitness is the trend to watch.

Maintaining a healthy physiology is an important objective for most people, and a physiology in good shape is a critical element for enjoying all aspects of life.  Unfortunately, a universal system that works for everyone to achieve and maintain "good health" doesn't seem to exist.  Our physiologies, though basically the same, have their own peculiarities.  A diet and lifestyle that work for one person is another person's nightmare.

Liana Werner-Gray, founder of The Earth Diet may have hit on some strategies that make it easier for a good portion of humanity to live a healthy life.  Before developing the myriad of programs that make up The Earth Diet, Liana went through her own battle with poor health, and we'll have the opportunity to hear her story during this week's LIVE show at Hy-Vee.

In honor of the 40th anniversary closing of Parsons College, Fairfield's Orpheum Theatre is showing Midnight Cowboy for one week, starting Friday. The students who graduated that final year would have been freshmen when this Best Picture Academy Award winner opened in 1969. Also, Night Of The Living Dead will show Friday & Saturday at midnight. George A. Romero's debut "set the template for the zombie film." 

We're stoked about Gravity, "directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuaron, staring Oscar winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space." This is an absolute must-see for film fans. Please experience Gravity on the biggest & best movie venue possible. "Words can do little to convey the visual astonishment this space opera creates. It is a film whose impact must be experienced in 3-D on a theatrical screen to be fully understood."- Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times. "In one form or another, motion pictures have been with us since the middle of the 19th century, but there's never been one like Gravity."- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal." This isn't just the best-looking film of the year, it's one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema."- Time Out. We suggest watching in it 3D, Dolby Atmos sound on the three story high, 55 foot wide screen at the Palms 10 Theatres in Muscatine, Iowa's newest theater offering the latest in movie technology.

Boy On the Wooden BoxFor decades, Leon Leyson kept his story of hardship during the Holocaust, and being one of the youngest on Schindler's List, mostly to himself.  Even his children weren't aware of the magnitude of the horrors that their father had experienced. But after the movie, "Schindler's List" came out, Leyson became more open about his history, speaking publicly on almost a weekly basis, at churches, synagogues, schools and community events.  Over and over he heard "you should write a book."  He decided to do just that, and the day after the manuscript was delivered to Atheneum, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, Leyson passed away at the age of 83.  

This week on Writers' Voices, Monica and Caroline speak with Leon's son Daniel Leyson, head coach of the UCLA water polo team and former Olympian, about his father's memoir.  Please join us.

59:15 minutes (81.36 MB) Stereo 44kHz 192Kbps (CBR)

Ocean Robbins, CEO & Co-Host

Ocean Robbins was born in a log cabin built by his parents, and grew up eating food they grew on the land together. At age 16, he co-founded an organization called YES!(Youth for Environmental Sanity) that he directed for the next 20 years. For more information check out:  http://www.gmosummit.org

Ocean has spoken in person to more than 200,000 students in school assemblies, and he has organized 100+ seminars and gatherings for leadersfrom 65+ nations. Ocean's work has taken him all over the world, where he has seen first-hand the powerful impact of the food we eat - not just on our health, but on people and economies everywhere.

He is author of The Power of Partnership, and co-author, with his dad and colleague John Robbins, of Voices of the Food Revolution. He serves as co-host and CEO of the Food Revolution Network Ocean.

Ocean is the son of John Robbins who was groomed to be the heir to the Baskin-Robbins empire, which was founded by his father. He had money, prestige, and security, along with an ice cream shaped swimming pool in the back yard. So why did John walk away from the money and the power? His conscience was emerging. He simply didn't want to devote his life to selling ice cream after realizing it makes people unhealthy. So he decided to make a change and forge a new path. Over the last 25 years, John's books about healthy eating and healthy living (including blockbuster bestseller Diet for a New America) have sold millions of copies and been translated into more than 30 lang- uages. He has made hundreds of local and national radio and television appearances, spoken in person to hundreds of thousands of people, founded EarthSave International, and received dozens of awards for his work on behalf of healthy people and a healthy planet. With his son and colleague Ocean, John serves as co-host of the Food Revolution Network.

Margaret KlawJoin Monica and Caroline this week on Writers' Voices for an inside look at the changing definition of family from a legal perspective.  Filled with interesting case histories and personal insight, "Keeping It Civil: The Case of the Pre-Nup and The Porsche & Other True Accounts from the Files of A Family Lawyer" describes the impact on real people from such soietal hot-button issues as divoce, custody, marriage equality and reproductive technology.

Family law is not a high-profile specialty, yet it is an area where attorneys can have real impact on the lives of their clients. In "Keeping It Civil,"  Klaw takes us inside the courtroom and discusses strategy, how attorneys work with opposing counsel, and how to determine the best approach for each case. Would-be attorneys can learn a lot about their future career from this book, but anyone with an interest in the law will find it fascinating.  "Keeping It Civil" is published by Algonquin Books.

59:40 minutes (54.63 MB) Stereo 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

Seth Kugel“The Frugal Traveler” for The New York Times, Seth Kugel, is our guest during the first half of this week’s show.    After graduating from Yale and Harvard and doing public service work, Seth began writing pieces for The New York Times in 1998.  In addition to the Times, Seth has written for O, the Oprah Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, Food and Wine and numerous other publications. 

In June, 2010, he took over the “Frugal Traveler” blog for the Travel section of The New York Times.  His first “road trip” lasted 13-weeks as he made his way mostly by bus from São Paulo,Brazil to New York City.  Seth is on the road about 50% of the time, and I'm certain you'll discover his insights fascinating and useful next time the road beckons.  You can find Seth's articles at www.nytimes.com/frugaltraveler.

I try to keep up with Seth's coming and goings and over the summer he embarked on a trip to explore the USA “Heartland.”  His August 14 column, “Eating in Iowa:  Farm-Fresh, Fried and Frugal,” not only drew me in immediately, but numerous listeners to Great Taste sent me the link attached to a “Can you believe he was in Iowa” email.  Reading the article I admit feeling a bit of a pleasant shock when I came across this paragraph:

“Back to lean and green: Fairfield, home to the Maharishi University of Management, which calls itself a “home of consciousness-based education,” has more than its share of vegetarian cafeterias and restaurants. I went to the Golden Dome Market and Cafe, near (but alas, not in) the campus’s two golden domes. The vegetarian buffet ($7.50 a pound) yielded some saag paneer, a bean taco loaded with vegetables, some tasty artichoke lasagna and a piece of fresh peach blueberry pie.”

THIS WEEK ON GREAT TASTE

LIVE AT HY-VEE, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 7:00 PM

Karin HauringJoin us in the Club Room where we’ll explore the holiday food of Germany with Karin Hauring.  Karin is a long-time resident of Fairfield, but she was born in Hechingen, Germany in the Black Forest region of the country.  Her food sensibilities were developed with a multi-fold of influences from the surrounding countryside, including the nearby Rhine river, Italy and Switzerland to the south, Austria to the southeast, and on the west the Alsace region of France. 

I am a great pasta lover and spaetzle is a type of egg noodle found in Karin’s home city and in the neighboring areas including Alsace, Switzerland, and Austria.  She’ll teach us how to make it, and prepare another dish-red cabbage and apples-that was and still is a standard in her home.  Finally, she’ll make a pumpkin cheese cake, which I think is an influence from her adopted country.  It’s crustless so it’s an easy addition for a holiday menu.

Katy Butler This week on Writers' Voices we welcome Katy Butler, whose searingly honest memoir about her parents' deaths, "Knocking on Heaven's Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death," is serving to open a much-needed conversation on whether extending life through medical intervention is always the right choice. It examines the ways in which our medical system encourages choices that may lead to unintended  consequences, including an increasing number of deaths in hospital intensive care units, surrounded by machines and strangers, as opposed to dying at home with loved ones.

In her book and her interview, Katy also shares a very personal account of the ways in which the extension of the dying process affect the family caregivers, both positively and negatively.  Katy Butler was awarded the Science in Society Prize from the National Association of Science Writers. Her writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New Yorker, the NY Times, Best American Essays, and Best American Science Writing.

I know a leader when I see one. I've seen a lot of them. Jason Aviles has all the qualities, the inner peace and the good looks to make a difference.

I love all of my guests, but I have no problem saying this has been my favorite one. Not because i like him best but because I felt honored to see him now, so i can say i knew him then. 

#BRONX #GREATNESS #INSPIRED

Born in the Bronx borough of New York City and living in the projects for over ten years, Jason overcame many obstacles, but his deepest struggle was coming to accept himself. After some hard life learning lessons, Jason was left with no other option but to trust his heart and pursue his calling to educate our youth.

The free film at the FF Library is a good one: Joss Whedon's (The Avengers): Much Ado About Nothing a modern retelling of Shakespeare's classic comedy. "The magic holds. It holds from beginning to end." Doors open at 7:00pm; free film begins at 7:30pm. As always, your donations for organic popcorn and bottled water help the library to renew its movie licenses. "After bringing Hollywood and Midwest talent together on their latest feature film, The Formula, three University of Iowa graduates are holding a premiere at the Orpheum Theatre." This will be one time showing only, Sunday at 3:00. Check out the Fairfield Weekly Reader for in depth information (and more cultural district entertainment).

Also at the OrpheumPrince Avalanche, directed by David Gordon Green, Prince Avalanche posterstarring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. "A gently existentialist buddy movie set against a backdrop of rugged woodland beauty. One of the most intriguing and thoughtful American films of the year." Good 'Ol' Freda, a documentary about the Beatles secretary is held over. It's "a delightful peek behind the curtain of one of the biggest bands in history."  Find the complete listing of Orpheum Theatre film & TV events in the FF Weekly Reader and by calling 641-209-5008.

THIS WEEK ON GREAT TASTE


Karin HauringJoin us in the Club Room where we’ll explore the holiday food of Germany with Karin Hauring.  Karin is a long-time resident of Fairfield, but she was born in Hechingen, Germany in the Black Forest region of the country.  Her food sensibilities were developed with a multi-fold of influences from the surrounding countryside, including the nearby Rhine river, Italy and Switzerland to the south, Austria to the southeast, and on the west the Alsace region of France. 

I am a great pasta lover and spaetzle is a type of egg noodle found in Karin’s home city and in the neighboring areas including Alsace, Switzerland, and Austria.  She’ll teach us how to make it, and prepare another dish-red cabbage and apples-that was and still is a standard in her home.  Finally, she’ll make a pumpkin cheese cake, which I think is an influence from her adopted country.  It’s crustless so it’s an easy addition for a holiday menu.

Furious Cool This week, Writers' Voices welcomes guest host Paul Gandy, local attorney, to the air as he and Monica interview Joe Henry, coauthor with his brother David of the biography "Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World That Made Him."

Richard Pryor is a fascinating subject - born and raised in Peoria, Illinois into a rough world of brothels and drug-runners, he was truly a comedic trail-blazer and introduced an entire generation of white America to Black culture.

 How this book came to be is a story in itself. Over a decade ago, Joe Henry, a 4 time Grammy-winning producer, singer and songwriter, contacted Richard Pryor to get his permission to use his name in a song title ("Richard Pryor Addresses a Tearful Nation" on Joe Henry's "Scar" album.)  One thing led to another, and soon Pryor had recruited Henry and his screenwriter/producer brother David to write the script for a bio-pic.  Shortly before going into production the movie was derailed, and the Henry brothers decided to convert the wealth of material they had gathered on their (flawed) hero into this book. Tune in for a fascinating conversation!

This week on The Skinny, there's a 'tint of snow' in the air (and the KRUU studios) as Africa lends the reins to Kathy Snow and Andrew Tint.

Listen to their fun interview with one of Kathy's college roommates, teammates, and besties, Janelle Jaspers Jones. A 3-time state high school high jump champ, 1st team all-state basketball player, and one of Iowa's all-time Top 10-performing heptathletes--Janelle's now a busy mom and personal trainer in Minneapolis with her own wellness-based business called Functional Fitness. Janelle trains clients from all walks and ages. Whether they're in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and even 70s and 80s (who Africa fondly refers to as 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, and 8s)...Janelle encourages everyone to start making themselves a priority and do what they can to lead a healthier life. Listen and learn while Janelle introduces us to Tabata-style training. Founded in Japan by Izumi Tabata, the Tabata concept is an easily modified type of high intensity interval training that you can customize to your fitness level. Unlike a more complicated or multi-exercise circuit, one Tabata session could be simply two exercises...doing as many squats (or just getting up and sitting down on a chair as many times) as you can in 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest, and then 20 seconds of push-ups (or do them against the wall), followed by 10 seconds of rest...and repeat 4 times.

Also, the well reviewed Mr. Nobody, starring Jared Leto: a "big-budget  picture proving Europeans can compete in the sci-fi realm where high production values are king." "A film with a beating heart underneath its breathtakingly designed exterior." Google either film and the Orpheum showtimes come right up. Ain't the internet great? Or as this filmosopher believes, Indra's Net. :)

Hunger Games: Catching Fire is getting great reviews. Philomena starring the great Judy Dench looks like another awards contender, offering "a profoundly affecting drama for adult filmgoers of all ages." We're excited to talk about Michel Gondry's (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) new film: Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky, in which he applies "his playful imagination to animating a series of conversations with the esteemed linguist, philosopher, political commentator and activist Noam Chomsky."
