About Buzzards Bay
map
Buzzards Bay is located in southern Massachusetts along the north western side of the Cape Cod Canal. The tidal salt water bay is bordered on its entire east side by the towns of Upper Cape Cod and on its entire west side by 6 towns in southernmost Massachusetts. Buzzards Bay was established by Congress in 1985 as an "Estuary of National Significance".

The bay is home to many water and land recreational activities. On the water they include sailing and fishing, swimming and sunbathing. On the vast land surrounding Buzzards Bay you can visit State Forests and Reservations and take part in field trips based on nature and environmental studies. There are also numerous hiking and bike trails that lead to the bay from all of the surrounding communities.

Watch the Skies: Boston MegaGame
The aliens have landed and it's up to the nations of Earth to unite... or not.  
Or at the very least, pass some UN resolutions and try not to spy on each other too much.  And then there's all that interesting alien tech floating around in the grey market...

How will it all shake out?  There's only one way to find out:  

A MEGAGAME.

What is a megagame?  It's like a game but bigger.  Mega-bigger.

Part RPG and part board game, Watch the Skies brings together 30-53 players who will play on teams as various nations and the alien visitors.  Each nation is made up of a team fufilling different roles:  the Foreign Minister, the Top Scientist, the Military Chief, and the Head of State.  The Foreign Minister will hold talks with other countries and the UN.  The Top Scientist will research new and alien technologies.  The Military Chief will control the military and the spies.  The Heads of State will listen to his advisers and ultimately call the shots for his nation.  And the aliens... well, you'll have to play the game to see what they're up to.

Inspired by the recent megagame episode of Shut Up and Sit Down a group of passionate gamers are excited to bring Watch The Skies to Boston.  The game will last approximately 6 hours.  All materials will be provided by the hosts.  For more information on the megagame please go to http://www.megagame-makers.org.uk/megagamet-wts.htm. For those of you that watched the Shut Up and Sit Down episodes: we are using an updated Watch the Skies game.  They have worked with the original game to change any aspects that were spoiled in the video and updated parts of the megagame to be even more awesome.  Don't worry, you'll have a completely unique experience. Want to get the latest information about MegaGames happening in New England? Check us out at MegaGames United

Tool Training: Tablesaw Fundamentals JUNE

 

Description:

The table saw is the center of most woodshops. Almost all woodworking projects, from fine furniture to general construction, use a table saw. When used incorrectly, however, it is also one of the most dangerous tools in the shop. In this four-week class, learn to use a table saw safely and accurately, and reinforce these techniques by constructing a small, simple project.

In the first session, we will cover three of the most common cuts; ripping, cross cutting, and dados. Students will learn to change blades, and set up simple jigs to precisely cut parts. In the second and third sessions we will make a small project from sheet goods. We will cover the best way to lay out parts, and how to cut and fit them to achieve accurate results. The project and the skills learned from it provide excellent fundamentals for larger projects students may wish to undertake on their own. In the fourth session students will get tested out on the tool, to verify their comfort using the tool without supervision as members of the Asylum or in their own shops.

Class Goals:

At the end of this class the students should be comfortable using a table saw safely, including changing blades and using dado blades and a variety of sleds and miter gauges. 

Students will also have an understanding of how to lay out simple woodworking projects to make the most efficient use of their time and materials, and will have a completed a small project to take home!

By the end of the four weeks, students will be fully tested out and ready to use the tablesaw unsupervised as members at Artisan's Asylum or in their own shops!

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age. No previous woodshop training required!

Materials Provided:

All necessary materials will be provided, and are covered by a $15 materials fee included in the cost of registration.

What to Bring:

Please dress appropriately for shop work: closed toed shoes, no baggy clothing or draping sleeves, no dangling jewelry or accessories, and something with which to tie back long hair.

Instructor Biography:

Carolyn Emberley has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst, taught in the Student Union Craft Center for most of her time there, and took woodworking classes in the art department.

Carolyn has been observing and building in her Dad's workshop since before she can remember. She built her first toolbox as a wee lass with her Dad's help when she was probably 8 or 10. Her personal projects tend to range from jewelry stands to boxes to small furniture. She comes from a family of professional builders and remodelers, and has helped frame, drywall, trim, paint, etc. many a structure, including her parents' home improvement projects, the construction of an addition to a family summer cottage, volunteering on several Habitat for Humanity sites, and supervising and teaching 14-18 year olds in week-long trips rebuilding houses in the Gulf Coast for three summers post-Hurricane Katrina. Teaching a 15 year old girl to cut and hang crown molding and seeing her amazement and the homeowner's gratitude in her results has been one of her most rewarding teaching experiences.

 

Event Time:

Session 1: Sunday, June 7, 4-6:30pm

Session 2: Sunday, June 14, 4-6:30pm

Session 3: Sunday, June 21, 4-6:30pm

Session 4: Sunday, June 28, 4-6:30pm (TESTING)

  

REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form.

Managing the over-connected digital workforce in 2015

Managing an overconnected digital workforce in 2015

Ever sat in a meeting with coworkers who have one hand on their phone and the other on a cup of coffee and wonder if anyone is really listening anymore?  Is it possible that the new generations are actually more productive by being constantly connected?  Is the ability to multitask with technology a skill that leads to success or an inhibitor of the focus demonstrated by great business leaders? Is all this technology good for our workforce or is it just a distraction to efficiency? 

This session in the Innovation Room at NECB will answer these questions (and others) and help prepare you to manage, collaborate, and coexist with all generations in your workplace.  It is designed 
to help business professionals to understand the communication styles of those raised within the digital socialization landscape.

Presenter Joni Siani is a filmmaker and author of Celling Your Soul: No App for Life. She is a media and communication scholar who studies young adults who were the first generation to experience the exponential shift into the digital socialization landscape.

Lama Surya Das presents “Make Me One with Everything”
What did the Dalai Lama say to the hot dog vendor? “Make me one with everything!” It’s a familiar joke, muses Lama Surya Das, and one that holds a profound truth: that in addition to inner peace, meditation is a path for all-inclusive connection. In Make Me One with Everything, he invites us to experience this through the art of inter-meditation and other original practices that allow us to see through the illusion of separation. “If you’ve ever felt ‘at one’ with something-your beloved or your child, a forest trail or a favorite song-then you’ve experienced inter-meditation,” explains Lama Surya Das. Based on Tibetan Buddhism’s core insights into the inherent essence of who we are, these teachings of shared spirituality offer both new and experienced meditators a better way to live-not just on the meditation cushion or the yoga mat, but in every moment of their lives. Lama Surya Das is one of the most learned and highly trained American-born lamas in the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition. He is the founder of the Dzogchen Center in Cambridge, Massachusettes and Austin, Texas. He is the author of many books, including Awakening the Buddha Within and Awakening to the Sacred. He lives in Cambridge. For more details visit here – http://www.goodreads.com/event/show/960186-lama-surya-das-presents-make-me-one-with-everything

The Saha Challenge Live Pitches

We are one step closer to deciding where Saha Global is going to expand this year! On Sunday May 31st from 2:00pm to 4:00pm our Challenge Finalists will pitch their countries  in front of a panel of expert judges in Boston, and we would love for you to join us!

In Round 2 of the Saha Challenge, our Field Rep alumni participants focused on a specific region and worked to quantify the need for clean water and electricity in the rural communities in that region. Over the last three months they have compiled research, have found partners on the ground, identified the need for water and electricity for the rural communities and started planning the logistics of running a Saha Global Leadership Program in each specific region.

For the final round of the competition, they will take all that information one step further to pitch a 10 day scouting plan for our team to follow this Summer. They have to plan  where would we fly into, the in-country transportation logistics required to reach rural communities, and select an area for our headquarters, as well as anticipate what we should expect in the communities as far was water and electricity access goes.  We will follow the plan closely as we travel to each country to get a sense of what a Saha water or solar business in the country might look like and how we could bring Field Reps to that country.

On May 31st the Finalists will pitch their plans for Saha Global’s expansion for Cambodia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Panama & Peru and our panel of judges will decide which countries' plans will be put into action this Summer; getting us that much closer to a final decision to be made in the Fall!

Our field reps have done an incredible job thus far and we are so excited for this part of the competition! Join us and dream up the possibilities of Saha expanding into Cambodia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Panama & Peru! This is event open to the public! You must RSVP!
