Huffington’s awakening

first_imgReformed workaholic Arianna Huffington on Wednesday urged a Harvard audience to unplug, get some sleep, and give to others, all as a way to get more out of life.Huffington, the president and editor in chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, said it took her own 2007 collapse — and breaking her cheek on the edge of her desk as she fell — to interrupt her always-on lifestyle. It was during her recovery that she began to think about how she ran her life and the broader topic of how society defines success.“I know by the conventional definition I was successful, but by any sane definition of success, if you’re lying in a pool of blood, you’re not,” Huffington said. “We discovered there was nothing wrong with me medically, but just about everything wrong with the way I was living my life.”In her subsequent exploration, Huffington found research — some of it conducted at Harvard — on the importance of sleep to health and creativity. Sleep deprivation robs one of the energy that makes working hours productive, and energy, not time, is the most important factor in tasks and personal interactions, she came to realize.“Sleep is like a miracle drug,” Huffington said. “If you look at all the things that it does, it looks like the label you’d find on snake oil of the 19th century, except it’s actually for real.”Huffington’s is not the first generation to value hard work over sleep and family time, she pointed out, but it is the first to be living during a “perfect storm in public health,” when there’s increasing evidence of harm in the go-go-go lifestyle.The period of introspection that followed Huffington’s collapse also led to a book,“Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder.” She discussed it with an audience of about 175 during a session of The Forum at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPS) held in the School’s Kresge Building.After introductory remarks from HSPH Dean Julio Frenk and Harvard President Drew Faust, Huffington was interviewed by Jay Winsten, the Frank Stanton Director of the School’s Center for Health Communication and associate dean for public and community affairs.Huffington said she sees slow but steady changes in the ways we run our lives. More awareness of the importance of rest and balance has helped, she said, as have declarations by some business leaders that they consider time to recharge crucial to their success, and the fact that a significant number of companies have wellness or stress-relief programs.Though sleep is critical to Huffington’s “Third Metric” of success — the first two are money and power — it is not the sole factor. Unplugging from technology is important, as is taking waking time for things such as contemplation or meditation, exercise, activities with family, and giving to others, which research has suggested can boost feelings of well being, Huffington said.Think of cellphones, she added, whose batteries we monitor regularly so we can power them up before they die.“That’s not how we treat ourselves. We have to be below zero battery remaining, crashing and burning, before we pay any attention.”last_img read more

QLD region has nation’s highest proportion of rented properties

The cliffs are located on the south side of the Brisbane River and are a popular picnic, rock climbing and abseiling site. Picture: AAP Image/Darren EnglandA SURPRISING Queensland outlier has topped the nation for its proportion of rented properties, leaving even Brisbane’s inner-city eating its dust.The Torres Strait Islands had the nation’s highest proportion of properties rented at a whopping 86.3 per cent, according to CoreLogic analysis of 2016 Census figures.Next were two Northern Territory areas – East Arnhem (84 per cent) and Nhulunbuy (79.6 per cent) – followed by Newman in Western Australia (74.4 per cent), Carlton in Victoria (71.2 per cent) and Queensland mining town Moranbah (69.7 per cent).CoreLogic research analyst Cameron Kusher said the top three regions for rented properties were dominated by accommodation that was provided by government.Torres Strait has the nation’s highest proportion of rented properties. Picture: Sue ThompsonMore from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor2 hours ago“Overall, the most rental-centric regions are generally located within mining and resource-related regions, and inner city areas where significant increases in housing density has taken place over recent years.”The Brisbane area with the highest proportion of properties rented was Fortitude Valley, which at 65 per cent was 12th on the national list, while South Brisbane was 19th on 62.3 per cent.Spring Hill was in 21st position (61.3 per cent), with university suburb Kelvin Grove 27th (59.4 per cent), and high growth middle ring suburb Chermside 37th (57.6 per cent).Mr Kusher said the proportion of properties rented has been trending higher going from 29.6 per cent during the 2011 Census, 27.2 per cent at the 2006 Census and 30.9 per cent of all dwellings“While the proportion of dwellings being rented is climbing, the proportion of properties owned outright has also been trending lower and the rate of home ownership is diminishing,” he said.“An interesting observation from the latest Census analysis is that those properties classified as ‘rentals’ are not all owned by private investors; almost 12 per cent of rented dwellings are owned by state or territory housing authorities, and 2 per cent are owned by community/church groups.”last_img read more

Flipping the Switch: How Harlequin Productions Has Fared in the Midst…

first_imgSubmitted by Harlequin Productions Harlequin Productions stages shows in the Historic State Theater in downtown Olympia.With the start of the 2008 economic recession, financial woes began spreading across our local county. Individuals and businesses alike felt the blow as consumer confidence fell and unemployment rose. Arts organizations in particular were adversely impacted, and Olympia’s own Harlequin Productions found itself right in the path of the oncoming economic storm.It took a couple years for the non-profit theater company to feel the effects, but it happened soon enough. As Managing Artistic Director, Scot Whitney describes, “In November 2010, it was like someone flipped a switch and all of a sudden ticket sales, sponsors, and donations fell off.”Since that sudden and distinct drop off in support over four years ago, Harlequin has experienced a steady, discouraging decline in ticket sales and has struggled to find new sponsors and advertisers. “We are so grateful to those local businesses and donors who continued their support through it all because we wouldn’t have made it without them.” says Scot Whitney.“It was heartbreaking,” says Artistic Director, Linda Whitney. “Year after year our reserves were depleted. Heading into Season 2015, the forecast for the next year looked pretty bleak.”  Early projections showed a cash flow shortage of about $50,000 come April 2015.  Yes, Harlequin was facing complete depletion of its reserves and had started planning a special campaign to increase working capital to make it through.The company’s leaders, however, were forced to face the possibility that Harlequin’s story may be coming to an end. “We have always said that we would be here presenting our distinctive brand of theater as long as the community supported it,” recalls Linda. “We decided that no matter what, we would not go into debt. If the day ever came that we couldn’t make payroll, or we couldn’t pay our actors, we’d shut the doors.”Then this past October, something happened. Harlequin opened their production of Clybourne Park, a Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Bruce Norris. It was a play that local critics praised, but tickets sales were lagging (a familiar story by this time). For the first two weekends, the show sold 20% under projections. But the final two weekends shocked the company by selling significantly over projections, with the final weekend nearly selling out. It had been years since they’d seen a non-musical performance come close to selling out.“I came in for the show one night in the third weekend and thought the ticket sales report might have been a typo,” remembers Scot. “It wasn’t until I was standing in front of the audience during the curtain speech that I could let myself believe we actually had a sold-out crowd.”After Clybourne Park closed, Harlequin was scratching its head wondering what suddenly happened halfway through the run. But they didn’t have too much time to think, because their next show, The Stardust Christmas Commotion, the latest in Harlequin’s series of holiday musicals, was opening in a few short weeks.Going into Stardust, Harlequin wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Was the sudden success of Clybourne Park just a fluke? Or was it a sign that things were getting better?They got their answer: Stardust not only sold extremely well, it broke records. The Stardust Christmas Commotion filled the theater to an average of 95% of capacity. Seventeen out of its twenty-four performances sold out, and the show set a new all-time Harlequin record for most consecutive sold-out performances with fourteen straight completely packed houses. “We added two performances to the run to try to accommodate the demand,” said Korja Giles, Harlequin’s Box Office Manager, “but in the final week, we had to turn people away. It was terrible to have to disappoint so many people during the holidays!”The Stardust series is a local holiday favorite and this year’s production saw record ticket sales and sell-out shows.“We think someone may have flipped the switch back on,” declared Scot and Linda Whitney.Has someone finally flipped the switch? They have reason to feel optimistic. With the success of The Stardust Christmas Commotion, the projected $50,000 cash flow deficit has been whittled down to about $15,000, a much more manageable challenge.And things are not just looking up for Harlequin but for Olympia as a whole. People everywhere seem to be more optimistic. The Arts bring more than culture to a community. The success of Stardust brought more people downtown, enhancing local economic activity as Harlequin patrons shopped and dined before and after performances.  A recent Harlequin survey shows that 76% of their patrons dine out as a part of their theater excursion while 26% shop at local retail shops. “We see a 20% increase in our business on Harlequin show nights,” commented Mark Arndt, manager of the neighboring McMenamins Spar Café.This city is known for its appreciation of the arts. And the resurgence of its theater scene is good news for everyone who appreciates a vibrant and culturally diverse downtown.Harlequin is clearly excited about its upcoming offerings for Season 2015. Up next is The 39 Steps by Patrick Barlow, an outrageously comic stage version of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film thriller in which four actors play an incomprehensible number of characters. Find a list of all Harlequin Season 2015 shows at harlequinproductions.org. If recent experience is any indication, you may want to grab your tickets sooner rather than later.Next year’s Season 2016 will mark the 25th year that Harlequin Productions has been producing extraordinary theatrical adventures for the greater Olympia community. “It looks like we just may be around to celebrate our silver anniversary year,” says Linda. “And that’s good news!” Facebook147Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Smokies get lift with return of Castlegar’s Jesse Knowler

first_imgKnowler appeared on the WHL radar as a 16-year-old after a sparkling playoff performance with the Castlegar Rebels.The Rebels ran the table before losing out to the Osoyoos Coyotes in the 2011 KIJHL final, scoring eight times and finishing the playoffs with 17 points after being called up from the Kootenay Ice of the B.C. Hockey Major Midget League.In addition, Trail has acquired forward Luke Sandler (93) and future considerations from the Cowichan Valley Capitals in exchange for the rights to forward Travis Stephens.Sandler, a 6’2”, 180 lb native of Chicago, Illinois, amassed 3 points in 4 games with the Capitals this season. He has 75 games of USHL experience to his credit with Des Moines, Tri-City and Fargo.Both Knowler and Sandler are expected to report to practice Thursday and could make their Smoke Eaters debuts at the club’s home opener, Friday, September 21st against the West Kelowna Warriors.Trail enters the contest going 1-3 on the road to start the season.The lone victory came against the Prince George Spruce Kings, 4-3 in overtime on a goal by captain Garrett McMullen.

first_imgTRAINER QUOTES JOE CIAGLIA, CO-OWNER/BREEDER ASHELYLUVSSUGAR: “This is just an amazing feeling. We knew he’d be a little fresh, with two months off, but Gary’s super smart and he got him relaxed and had him well-spotted. He had to check there (on the far turn), but he got outside and from there, we knew we had a chance to win. After his last race (a win in the Grade II, 1 ½ miles turf San Luis Rey Stakes March 21) we were hoping it wasn’t a fluke…Now we know he’s for real. We’d like to run in the Breeders’ Cup, but we’ve got a decision to make. The deadline is June 10 and we’ll have to put up $50,000.” JOCKEY QUOTESGARY STEVENS, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “It looked like it was going to be messy on paper and it was. There was no real speed in the race and he was very fresh today.“I wasn’t afraid to put him on the lead if that’s where he wanted to be but Mike (Smith, on Going Somewhere) sent his horse away from there pretty hard and was intent on getting the lead. ‘Ashley’ got a little rank with me just before we crossed over the dirt but then he shut down for me and was push button.“I knew Flavien (Prat, on Ganesh) was behind me playing the waiting game and he chose to go inside of me so I forced him to go clear inside and I wasn’t ready to move yet. We were too far out and I didn’t want to swing four wide until we straightened out into the lane and a lot of horses you can’t do that with. He’s so intelligent and he listens to what I want him to do. I got to know him even better today, it’s only the second time I’ve been on him. He’s a real warrior and a lot of fun to ride.“I know Pete has never won the San Juan Capistrano and I’ve never won the San Juan so hopefully you’ll see us in there at the end of the meet.” NOTES: The winning owners are Sharon Alesia of Carlsbad; Michael Mellen (Bran Jam Stable) of Connecticut; and Joe Ciaglia of Upland.-30-center_img PETER EURTON, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “(Ashley’s Folly, dam of Ashleyluvsssugar) was a pretty darn good mare and everything she’s foaled has won a maiden special weight and now this is her first graded stakes winner.”“I think that the track was much slower today. In his last race they went 45 for the half and today they went in 48 so I don’t know if it’s a combination of both the track being slower and a lack of pace in there. I didn’t know what he was going to do so I just left it up to Gary today.“Our goal, for me, and I hope it’s the same for everyone is to go in the San Juan Capistrano (Grade III, 1 ¾ miles on turf June 28), which has always been a fun race and I’ve always thought it would be pretty cool to win.”             MIKE SMITH, GOING SOMEWHERE, THIRD: “He’ll get a lot out of this. The plan was to go to the lead and it worked well. We had a shot to win it and he just got a little tired at the end. Like I said, he’ll get a lot out of this race.”last_img read more
