MXI Corp was founded upon the same solid foundation that the Brooks' family used to build their enormous Pure Delite Low Carb Chocolate company (circa 2000) which had retail sales in Wal-Mart, 7-Eleven, Rite-Aid and Walgreen's of over $300,000,000. All MXI products are focused on potent doses of delicious, antioxidant-rich Belgian cacao. MXI-Corp believes that the high levels of natural antioxidants and Polyphenols that are found in its cacao can provide a viable solution to individual nutritional needs.

If you’re in an ecommerce business then you shouldn’t rely on Amazon. But if your ecommerce business is funding your lifestyle, and you don’t want to change the world, then Amazon could possibly work. This distinction is important: It’s essentially asking this critical question about your business, “Who do you want to be when you grow up?” If your ambition is large, then Amazon is not for you. However, if you merely want to make enough money to pay the bills each month, then it could be good. Please understand that you’re hitching a ride on the back of a very strong 900-pound gorilla. http://cacaopow.myxocaidiet.com/ , http://cacaopow.myxocaienergy.com/ , http://cacaopow.myxocai.co.uk/ Xocai (AKA: MXI Corp) is a high antioxidant, healthy, dark chocolate based ‘Network Marketing’ company.

It strives to offer the widest selection, at best price, and with the easiest repeat shopping experience. Other merchants fit into this strategy only so far as they help Amazon to offer a wider selection of products. Every customer on Amazon registers; you can’t buy without first registering. Amazon views the merchant as an affiliate — a source of new customers — based on products. Having captured the customer, Amazon’s model is to drive repeat sales, and it will relentlessly sell the whole range of its products, not yours. Recognizing there are valid reasons to sell on Amazon, here are the three reasons that you should not sell there. If you use Fulfillment by Amazon —Amazon does the shipping — you know nothing about the customer. All you see is the revenue. They own the data and the customer relationship. Brand. Profitability in ecommerce is in repeat purchases and selling more than one product to customers. When you sell on Amazon, you tap into a potential source of traffic, but your brand disappears. Traffic isn’t coming to your site. You have no opportunity to upsell; that opportunity is Amazon’s. www.ImAdamGreen.com, www.Facebook.com/AdamPaulGreen

notloB Parlour Concerts presents...The Tannahill Weavers with Fresh Haggis

Tannahill Weavers
Roy Gullane, guitar
Phil Smillie, flute, bodhran, vocals
John Martin, fiddle, viola, cello, vocals
Lorne MacDougall, bagpipes, Scottish smallpipes and whistles
http://www.tannahillweavers.com/

 The Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland 's premier traditional bands.  Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. Their music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people.  These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts that seemingly can't get better...yet continue to do just that.  

The Tannahills have turned their acoustic excitement loose on audiences with an electrifying effect. They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable.  As the Winnipeg Free Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers - properly harnessed - could probably power and entire city for a year on the strength of last night's concert alone.  The music may be old-time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll."  

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the group has made an international name for its special brand of Scottish music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms.  Over the years the Tannies have been trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.

They are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage.  From reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.  

"An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new."  New York Times  

"Scotland 's Tannahill Weavers play acoustic instruments, but the atmosphere at their shows is electric.  The quintet is as tight and as versatile as any band in the Celtic music revival.  They can summon rock 'n' roll intensity or haunting introspection."  The Boston Globe, Boston MA  

"...as close to perfect as it gets in an imperfect world."  Sing Out!

The Tannahill Weavers will be supported by....

notloB Parlour Concerts presents... Mr. Sun

notloB's Fall season, which began in September with Blue Hat, Yeah! and continued in October with the Tannahill Weavers continues in our new 100 seat Washington Square Brookline venue, located on the "C" green line with plenty of street parking and close to over a dozen restaurants!

notloB Parlour Concerts presents... Mr.Sun, a 21st Century string band.... multi-generational hot shots! 
Sunday, November 30, 2014, 8:00pm
Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis*, 1581 Beacon St, Brookline, MA 02446

Mr. Sun is the name of a new musical project: Darol Anger, Joe Walsh on mandolin (Gibson Brothers, himself), Grant Gordy on guitar (David Grisman, Jake Schepps) and Ethan Jodziewicz on acoustic bass.

Legendary fiddler Darol Anger, youthful guitar whiz Grant Gordy, and the redoubtable mandolinist Joe Walsh have all spent their lives moving from place to place, adopting a town and moving on, toward an magisterial knowledge of the physical and psychic terrains that make up the Americas. 
Though each is of a different generation, they've walked similar musical paths, exploring the worlds of bluegrass, blues, jazz, and old-time, on their way to mastery of their chosen instruments. Day by day, they deepen their fluency in the vast swath of dialects that comprise American roots music.

DAROL ANGER
Fiddler, composer, producer and educator, Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent. Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, his Duo with Mike Marshall, and others. He has performed and taught all over the world with musicians such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Bela Fleck, Bill Evans, Edgar Meyer, Bill Frisell, Tony Rice, Tim O’Brien, Anonymous 4, Marin Alsop and the Cabrillo Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, Mark O’Connor, and Stephane Grappelli. Today Darol can be heard on NPR's "Car Talk" theme every week, along with Earl Scruggs, David Grisman and Tony Rice. He was also the violinist on the phenomenally popular Sim City computer games. In addition to performing all over the world, he has recorded and produced scores of important recordings since 1977, is a MacDowell and UCross Fellow, and has received numerous composers’ residencies and grants. He has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks. He is an Associate Professor at the prestigious Berklee School of music. He recently began an ambitious online Fiddle School at ArtistWorks.com. His website is www.darolanger.com

GRANT GORDY
Assuming the guitarist role in the fabled David Grisman Quintet, a spot previously held by such notables as Tony Rice, Mark O’Connor, Frank Vignola and Mike Marshall, has confirmed Grant Gordy as a pre-eminent young voice on acoustic guitar. David Grisman says Gordy “belongs to the new elite of American acoustic practitioners who are pushing the ever-expanding envelope of a musical frontier.”
His work has been widely recognized for its consistent excellence and diversity. He was featured on the covers of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine and Japan’s premier bluegrass magazine, Moonshiner. He was recently written up in Just Jazz Guitar and in 2010, Acoustic Guitar Magazine celebrated his debut CD in its Top Ten Acoustic Albums of the Year.
Gordy’s music has been heard on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered and the prestigious Tiny Desk Concerts. Gordy was selected in 2006 to be one of 15 participants in Carnegie Hall’s “Porous Borders of Music” workshop, led by acoustic music legends Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall. He’s played at Bonnaroo Music Festival, the Montréal Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco and in the UK and Russia.
Gordy was drawn to the guitar early on as a means of expression and intellectual curiosity. Moving to Colorado from Oregon in his 20s opened his horizons as he began playing in a wide range of different styles.
Now based in New York, Gordy’s diverse musical gifts make him the ideal all-around guitarist for one of the world’s most varied musical cities. He’s currently focused on writing new original material, delving headlong into the Big Apple’s extraordinary jazz scene, continuing to tour with Grisman and other collaborators, teaching, and as always, staying open to new musical experiences.
"The young bluegrass/jazz virtuoso’s recording debut is an inspired, ambitious, coherent collection of original compositions for string jazz quartet (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass) that ranks with the best of his employer, David Grisman.” --Acoustic Guitar Magazine

JOE WALSH
Recognized as one of the foremost contemporary mandolinists, Joe has also won acclaim and affection for his vocals and his talents on a number of other instruments, including guitar and octave mandolin. Legendary fiddler Darol Anger called “one of my favorite musicians on earth.” With two solo albums to his credit, he toured internationally with the award-winning bluegrass supergroup The Gibson Brothers.
In the spring of 2011 Joe released his second solo record, “Sweet Loam,” which features several of his recent compositions and new arrangements of some more familiar songs. An exceptional cast of musicians joins him, including Mike Block, Scott Law, Karl Doty, Lauren Rioux, and Darol Anger, who also co-produced the record with Joe. In the Fall of 2011 Joe returned to Berklee as both a mandolin instructor and as Managing Director of the American Roots Music Program.

ETHAN JODZIEWOCZ
Ethan Jodziewicz currently studies at Curtis Institute with Edgar Meyer. Making a musical home for Mr Sun in the space around and between the great American roots styles, this quartet draws from all of their varied backgrounds (Grammy-nominated fiddle music and jazz, award-winning bluegrass, indie/pop grass, new acoustic string bands, and classical music) in crafting a sound all their own, and is drawing all the right kind of attention for their new musical work.

Music Hath Charms: The Psychic Track
Music has charms to sooth a savage breast, To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak. I’ve read, that things inanimate have mov’d, And, as with living souls, have been inform’d By magic numbers and persuasive sound. “The Mourning Bride” Act 1, Scene 1, by William Congreve (1697) Music is an important part of psychic, cultural and political life. Its ability to resonate with our deepest longings and most powerful impulses is impressive and, at times, surprising. Psychoanalyst Elizabeth Dorsey will present ideas and observations about this nearly universal impact and invite discussion from participants. Joining Ms. Dorsey is Hugh Keelan who will include some keyboard demonstrations and will ask insightful and provocative questions about the how and why of performance and response. What, for example, are we in reality responding to when we appreciate and enjoy (or indeed dislike) a performance? Elizabeth Dorsey, senior faculty, training and supervising analyst at the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis. Formerly, Director of the Vermont Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, a branch of BGSP, and faculty there. Ms. Dorsey has a deep appreciation for the fine arts and their resonance with the unconscious. Guest Speaker: Hugh Keelan is the Music Director of the Windham Orchestra and has conducted throughout the world, from Amsterdam to New Zealand. He is a composer, pianist and musical entrepreneur who is committed to elevating the performance and experience of all groups he comes into contact with.

It celebrates adventures as grand as riding a cardboard rocketship to space and as small as giving up an old pair of sneakers for new ones. Recommended for ages 3+.

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Course in Creativity

The Course in Creativity combines and integrates two of Dr. Edward de Bono's powerful thinking programs; the program in parallel thinking, Six Thinking Hats; and the program for innovation and creativity, Lateral Thinking. This program can be designed in a special executive, limited group size format for on-site delivery; one full day, and five half days, spread over a period of several weeks to strengthen your learning experience. You not only learn to effectively use Dr. de Bono's powerful methods, but also will employ them to focus on live and relevant business issues.

Using the Parallel Thinking techniques of Six Thinking Hats you will learn to:
*Solve problems more efficiently and effectively with more buy-in
*Turn problems into opportunities
*Make higher quality decisions and reduce conflict
*Hold and lead shorter, more productive meetings
*Use Parallel Thinking as a group to make higher quality decisions
*Make thorough evaluations
*Effectively involve more people in the decision making process
*Create dynamic, results-oriented meetings that make people want to participate

Using the Lateral Thinking tools, you will learn to:
*Increase the number of new and practical ideas dramatically
*Challenge your organizations' current thinking (constructively)
*Be creative when you need it most
*Create new products, processes, and services
*Attack problems with more and better ideas to get immediate results
*Create an attitude and real atmosphere of entrepreneurship *Think 'outside the box' on demand
*Make creative, innovative, collaborative and entrepreneurial thinking part of your everyday work life

Robin Hood by Brad Shur

Join us for our 40th Anniversary Season: Fall Fairy Tale festival with a series of enchanting puppet shows that feature re-tellings of classic fairy tales. About "Robin Hood":

Explore the wilds of Sherwood Forest in this rollicking retelling of the classic Robin Hood tale. When the Sheriff of Nottingham begins demolishing woodland homes as part of a grand castle-expansion scheme, the starry-eyed Robin sees his chance to fight back and fulfill his dream of becoming a hero. Of course, he'll need a little help from his friends. Join Maid Marion, Little John, and a mischievious deer with excellent taste in clothes on a medieval mission to save the forest. Featuring original music by composer Paul Watkins and beautifully-crafted costumes and scenery.

About the performer: Brad Shur is a versatile puppeteer who has created and performed characters made of everything from pixels to papier mache. As the Artist in Residence at Puppet Showplace Theater he performs regularly and teaches puppetry classes to students of all ages, Pre-K to adult. As protégé of master puppeteer Paul Vincent Davis, Shur trained extensively in glove puppetry and currently performs two of Davis’ classic shows at venues across New England. "Robin Hood" was Shur's first original glove puppet show. Shur’s other original works include "The Carrot Salesman," "Dr. Doohickey and the Monster Machine," "The Yankee Peddler: Stories and Songs from Old New England" and "The Magic Soup and Other Stories," featured at the Puppeteers of America National Festival 2013. Prior to becoming the Artist in Residence at Puppet Showplace, Shur toured the country as a performer with Big Nazo (Rhode Island), Wood & Strings Theatre (Tennessee) and The PuppeTree (Vermont). As a builder Shur has designed and fabricated puppets for American Idol, Dollywood, Avenue Q, and the U.S.S. Constitution Museum. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design.

Little Red Rosie and the Dragon of Dümm by Sea Beast Puppet Company

Join us for our 40th Anniversary Season: Fall Fairy Tale festival with a series of enchanting puppet shows that feature re-tellings of classic fairy tales. About "Little Red Rosie and the Dragon of Dümm":

"This hilarious production intertwines the stories of "Little Red Riding Hood" and "St. George and the Dragon" in a fast paced fairy tale frenzy! Rosie is a strong, independent girl who takes matters into her own hands instead of waiting for someone to save her. George, in contrast, proves he doesn't need  brute strength to make a name for himself. When the two join forces to save a dragon-plagued town, they teach an important lesson about not letting others define who you are. Featuring over 100 illustrated puppet characters, show-stopping musical numbers, a giant dragon, and lots of irreverent humor, this production is sure to delight audiences of all ages!"

NT Live: Frankenstein

National Theatre Live’s 2011 broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas as part of National Theatre Live's 5th anniversary celebrations.

Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) directs a sensational production with Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, CBS’s Elementary) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died.

As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

Zion Church Launch

Zion is a new Christian Church starting in the Boston area.

The Launch!
What it IS NOT: it is not an announcement to the community that there is a new church on the block.
What is IS: it is a gathering for a spiritual, vocally loud Declaration of Intent!  God's intent for the people of this city.
It is to praise God for this city, in this city. It is to prayerfully call out for the lost and lonely ones to be found and healed in Him.

We would love to have you join us for this occasion. You may be part of a local church already and we dont want to take you away from that church, but we would love to have you join with us for this specific occasion to lift up the Name of our King and Savior Jesus for an hour and a half or so.

Brookline's Harvard Street is a great place to hang out, so come early and explore the area on Sunday afternoon. Walk through it and as you do, please pray for Zion, that we would be a church with a voice that rings true, with arms that reach wide, with hands that heal, and with feet that would bring the message of peace everywhere we go.

Parking will be freely available at the Devotion School, until 6pm.

Directed by Alfonso Cuáron (Gravity), the film is at turns hopeful and frightening, and features memorable performances by Clive Owen, Michael Caine, and Julianne Moore.

Before the screening, reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist Dr. David Ryley will give an overview of what the future holds for fertility rates, and what infertility treatments are currently being developed.

Friday, November 14th:  CAPPELLA ROMANA performing The Fall of Constantinople.  

Cappella Romana is an internationally recognized vocal ensemble dedicated to combining passion with scholarship in its exploration of the musical traditions of the Christian East and West, with emphasis on early and contemporary music.  "The Fall of Constantinople," directed by Alexander Lingas, was first performed by Cappella Romana to captivated audiences in January 2002, just months after the September 11, 2001 attacks.  It was later booked by a number of early music festivals across North America and Europe, most recently the Utrecht Early Music Festival in the Netherlands.

Saturday, November 15th: GREEK ORTHODOX BYZANTINE CHOIR performing Petros The Peloponnesian: Portrait of a Musical Genius and DUNYA perfoming A Fasil for Phanariot Beyzade.

The Archdiocesan Byzantine Choir introduces audiences beyond the borders of Orthodox churches to the beauty of Byzantine music and reveals the spiritual depth of this ancient music.  The choir, directed by Dr. Demetrios Kehagias, will offer a musical portrait of Petros the Peloponnesian, cantor in the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and widely regarded as the greatest post-Byzantine ecclesiastical composer.  The performance will present the best-known masterpieces of Petros alongside works by composers whose style bears the unmistakable influence of Petros.

DUNYA ensemble, a musicians' collective and record label, will perform Phanariot songs and Ottoman classical music notated by master nineteenth-century Greek Orthodox cantors. Core ensemble member Mehmet Ali Sanlikol has selected compositions in order to recreate a recital that would have been enjoyed by a Phanariot Beyzade (a Greek-Ottoman prince) in nineteenth century Istanbul.

A series of free lectures and workshops related to the concerts will be presented throughout the day on November 14 and 15.  A full schedule is available at www.BostonByzantineMusic.org
