Streamlining Your Follow Up: How to Stay Organized

At the end of every presentation, your goal should be to walk away with as much of your audience’s contact information as possible. But the question is, once you have the data, what’s next?

The power of a samurai sword in your pocket!

We’ve been pretty interested in this phenomenon called Damascus Steel (you can read our editorial on the beautiful, marbled metal here) over the past few months. Imagine having the properties of multiple steel alloys in one single sheet of steel, and along with that, you get an absolutely hypnotic marble-effect on the surface of a metal. That’s Damascus Steel. The steel is a specially formulated sheet that incorporates different alloys with different iron and carbon ratios into one single sheet,...

How Our Perceptions Of Horror Changed After World War 1

The horror of the Great War consumed the lives of soldiers and civilians alike; it sought them out in their sleep, their imagination, and, bizarrely, in their entertainments. The “horror film” had existed almost from the time of the invention of the motion picture itself in the late 19th century. But a new kind of terror film manifested in the years following the Great War.

Interactive Theatre? Fine, As Long As I Don’t Need To Participate

“Let me just say that although I don’t mind watching other theatergoers getting into the act — as a longtime observer of how audiences behave, the psychology of these events intrigues me — I hate being compelled to be the show.

Stunts under precarious circumstances – Glass’s ‘Satyagraha’, imported from Sweden

Philip Glass used to say he never composed opera per se, but ended up rubbing shoulders with Verdi and Wagner because opera houses had the needed theatrical apparatus. After 37 years of making the opera-house rounds, Satyagraha, is no easier to define.

Report: Poor Are Losing Out In Music Education In The UK

Children in low income households were half as likely to take music lessons. The report suggests only 19% of children from families earning less than £28,000 learned a musical instrument, compared with 40% of those in high-earning households. This is despite similar levels of interest from both groups of children. The report also suggests higher-earning parents were twice as likely to want their children to learn an instrument.
