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.
Plan to attend or participate in the Buzzards Bay Regatta or just spend a leisurely vacation in and around Buzzards Bay. It will prove to be a memorable and pleasurable experience.

On the evening of July 8th we will be celebrating the launch of the LOFT’s first physical lab space, along with all of the initiatives it will continue to drive and support. In our quest to spark innovation within our internal organization, as well as within the Greater Boston community, we want to take this opportunity to open our doors to the larger entrepreneurial and university communities in Boston. This innovation capability will reach far beyond the thriving Seaport District and support both the company as well as the city of Boston in becoming a renowned leader in advancing technology. We hope to find ways to support the wider innovation ecosystem here in Boston and identify areas for collaboration as we launch. This reception will also mark the completion of Unleash Boston, the first of a series of hackathons hosted by the LOFT. Reception attendees will have the opportunity to network with some of our own innovative minds from across North America, who will have just wrapped up two days of brainstorming, prototyping and pitching new business products and/or services! It will also be a great opportunity for those who participated in the hackathon to hear how innovators outside the company are moving things forward in their own respective realms. To tie it all together, we are excited to announce that we will be joined by David Rose who will be speaking at the reception. David is an award-winning entrepreneur, author, and instructor at the MIT Media Lab. His research focuses on making the physical environment an interface to digital information. He is a major speaker on The Internet of Things - the concept where everyday items become "enchanted objects," able to anticipate our needs, talk with each other, and make life simpler.

THEY SET OUT TO RECONSTRUCT A LOST SYNAGOGUE. THEY RECOVERED A LOST WORLD. a feature documentary by Yari & Cary Wolinsky Rivaling the greatest wooden architecture in history, the synagogues of 18th-century Poland inspired artists Rick and Laura Brown of Handshouse Studio to embark on a 10-year pursuit—to reconstruct the elaborate roof and painted ceiling of the Gwozdziec synagogue. Leading over 300 students and professionals from 16 countries, the Browns grapple not just with the echoes of World War II when these buildings were destroyed by the Nazis, but also with warped timbers, tricky paints, and period hand tools. By the end of the project, they have done more than reconstruct a lost synagogue: they have recovered a lost world. In 2014, the Gwozdziec roof was unveiled as the centerpiece of the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.

Data Science for Behavior Analysts Sponsored by Beyond Expectations Join us on July 11th, 2015, as we endeavor to break new ground in improving behavior by leading a one-of-a-kind workshop on data science. Offered to behavioral analysts, special education teachers, school psychologists, and parents of students with disabilities, we will teach you how to use data to improve the outcomes of all students. The Chartlytics Workshop offers 7hrs of Type 2 BCBA credits Lead by Richard M. Kubina Jr., Ph.D., BCBAD, co-founder of Chartlytics, and Professor of Special Education at Pennsylvania State University, we will delve into the world of data analysis and how it can be applied to meaningfully improve current and future behaviors data analysis skills. Identifying and describing behavior Today’s behavior analysts must observe, visually display, and determine the function of behavior. However, problems have started to creep into contemporary behavior analysis such as defining behavior using nouns (e.g., aggression, tantrum), improper verb forms (e.g., yelling, hitting), targets that lack movement (e.g., sitting still, being quiet), ambiguous verbs (e.g., understanding math facts, transition to social studies class), and social constructs (e.g., forgetting to use manners). Our workshop helps participants learn by focusing more on how to “pinpoint” behavior. Chartlytics pinpoints have a movement cycle (action verbs plus noun) and context for where the behavior occurs, which make behavior analysts more effective when detecting behavior and communicating results to stake holders (e.g., parents, insurance companies, fellow behavior analysts). Data recording Two major complications exist for counting and recording behavior, 1. using percent correct as the main decision making metric and 2. using interval records which do not reflect the fundamental properties. Research shows interval recording either under or overestimates the occurrence of behavior. Workshop participants will learn how to easily measure behavior with frequency, latency, and duration of these factors, as well as engage in data recording exercises to understand why frequency, latency, and duration serve as an eminently better data medium than interval records. Graphical display Nonstandard linear graphs (NLG) pervade behavior analysis. Recent research show numerous problems associated with NLGs including improper scale proportions (leading to exaggerated or depressed trend and variability), scaling and labelling errors, and illegible data points. As a result, visual analysis is negatively affected. The present workshop will provide all attendees the skills to use the Standard Celeration Chart (SCC). The SCC not only rectifies all the previously mentioned problems, but it elevates the science of behavior by providing a true standard for judging the significance of behavioral change. Many other advantages will be discussed and demonstrated. About the Presenter Richard M. Kubina Jr., Ph.D., BCBA-D, taught special education in private schools specializing in post-acute brain trauma rehabilitation for three years. Currently, Dr. Kubina is the Professor of Special Education at Pennsylvania State University and teaches courses on methods for teaching reading, informal assessment, behavior analysis, and single case design. Dr. Kubina also conducts wide-ranging research in the area of Applied Behavior Analysis, Precision Teaching, and graphical display of data. He is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Doctoral level, and serves on a number of editorial boards for behavioral and special education journals. Dr. Kubina is also the cofounder of Chartlytics, a company dedicated to making the world a better place through science and thoughtful, behavior engineering. FAQs What are the objectives of the workshop? What will I learn? -State how pinpointing is used to make daily instruction/practice targets. -Compare interval recording and frequency data and state how frequency adds more precision and accuracy for observing behavior. -Count behaviors and calculate frequencies. Identify limitations nonstandard linear charts have for analyzing time-series data. -Chart behavioral data on a Standard Celeration Chart and identify the celeration value. -Develop a celeration-based analysis of problem behavior. -Discuss applications of Standard Celeration Charting for common acceleration and deceleration targets. -Identify how to manage replacement and prosocial behaviors in a structured manner. Is there an abstract of the workshop I can share with colleagues? Behavior analysts must observe, visually display, and determine the function of behavior. Workshop participants will learn how to “pinpoint” behavior. Pinpoints have a movement cycle (action verbs plus noun) and context for where the behavior occurs. Workshop participants will also learn how to easily measure behavior with frequency, latency, and duration. Participants will take part in data recording exercises and see how frequency, latency, and duration provide more information than interval records. The present workshop will demonstrate common problems with data display and subsequent data analysis in nonstandard line graphs. Learning how to use the Standard Celeration Chart for time series behavior has several advantages for the practicing behavior analyst, all of which will be discussed and practiced with workshop attendees. Participants will use the Standard Celeration Chart to chart behavioral data, employ basic data analysis (e.g., celeration, bounce or variability), and communicate data in a standard fashion with staff, clients, and parents. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? We are hosting the workshop at the Emerald Coast Convention Center. You can park for free. Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email us at email@example.com Is my registration/ticket transferrable? Yes, you may transfer your ticket to another person to go in your place. Can I update my registration information? Yes. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No. What is the refund policy? Generally no, we encourage you to transfer your ticket if possible. The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay? Yes. Are you serving lunch? Lunch is on your own, or with a new friend you met at the workshop. There are many nearby restaurants. We will have snacks for break however.

Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed the Wolfpack, the brothers spend their childhood re-enacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. With no friends and living on welfare, they feed their curiosity, creativity, and imagination with film, which allows them to escape from their feelings of isolation and loneliness. Everything changes when one of the brothers escapes, and the power dynamics in the house are transformed. The Wolfpack must learn how to integrate into society without disbanding the brotherhood.
Join us October 2, as friends of Eric Donovan will gather at Indian Ponds, to support his fight. On March of 2003 Eric was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a cancer that attacks bone and soft tissue. He was given a 30 percent chance to live; despite all odds Eric fought relentlessly and entered remission six years later. The same summer he turned twenty-one and tragedy struck Eric and his family again. Eric was paralyzed from chest down in a diving accident at the Spit in Scituate, a sandbar at the mouth of the North River. After multiple surgeries to realign and stabilize his cervical spine, he gained sensation in one of his arms. Eric received physical therapy at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston in the months to follow. Eric is now going to Journey Forward a non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of those who have suffered a Spinal Cord Injury through an intense exercise program. Eric is one of the most inspirational people whose positive can-do attitude allows him to persevere through any obstacle that he faces. The community of Scituate has a very strong bond, always coming together to support each other during the time of tragedy. We hope to benefit Eric as much as we did in 2010 at the House of Blues. The money we raise will help assist Eric in his rehabilitation process and the equipment that is needed for him to some day walk again.

Harvard Book Store welcomes CAITLIN MORAN, author of How to Be a Woman, reads from her new-to-paperback novel, How to Build a Girl. The New York Times bestselling author hailed as “the UK’s answer to Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and Lena Dunham all rolled into one” (Marie Claire) makes her fiction debut with a hilarious yet deeply moving coming of age novel. What do you do in your teenage years when you realize what your parents taught you wasn’t enough? You must go out and find books and poetry and pop songs and bad heroes—and build yourself. It’s 1990. Johanna Morrigan, fourteen, has shamed herself so badly on local TV that she decides that there’s no point in being Johanna anymore and reinvents herself as Dolly Wilde—fast-talking, hard-drinking Gothic hero and full-time Lady Sex Adventurer. She will save her poverty-stricken Bohemian family by becoming a writer—like Jo in Little Women, or the Bröntes—but without the dying young bit. By sixteen, she’s smoking cigarettes, getting drunk and working for a music paper. She’s writing pornographic letters to rock-stars, having all the kinds of sex with all kinds of men, and eviscerating bands in reviews of 600 words or less. But what happens when Johanna realizes she’s built Dolly with a fatal flaw? Is a box full of records, a wall full of posters, and a head full of paperbacks, enough to build a girl after all? Imagine The Bell Jar written by Rizzo from Grease. How to Build a Girl is a funny, poignant, and heartbreakingly evocative story of self-discovery and invention, as only Caitlin Moran could tell it.

North America experienced a boom in private equity activity last year, with over 1,000 buyouts taking place on the continent for the first time since 2007. According to Preqin’s Global Private Equity & Venture Capital Report, last June saw PE and VC assets under management reach a new high of US$3.8tn. At the same time, dry powder for these companies rose 11.9% in 2014, to US$1.2tn. Looking at the US in particular, Preqin research also found that US-focused buyout funds make up nearly two-thirds (63% of the total), compared with 56% over the last decade. Yet despite this, there are some concerns. The increasing amount of capital and investor demand is creating pressure around valuations, and the exit market, after a solid 2014, is slowing down somewhat. How has this changed the PE/VC landscape in North America, and what does the future hold? Join Mergermarket and RR Donnelley’s panel discussion to look at these topics in depth, and more, followed by a cocktail reception. Register now for this complimentary event Topics include: What has been driving North America’s private equity and venture capital boom in the last 18 months? How can PE firms stay ahead in the extremely competitive North-American market? What is attracting private equity to North American tech, industrial and chemicals and business services companies? How can VCs decide at what stage to invest in a company? How are VC firms in North America dealing with competition in the shapes of new forms of finance, such as angel investors, crowdfunding and accelerators? Will the fall in the number of PE/VC exits continue, and what does effect will this fall have?
