CROSBY AND NASH
One Night Only

A Special Performance Benefiting the children of Five Acres, exclusively at The Pasadena Playhouse

Legendary duo David Crosby and Graham Nash will perform a special 90-minute concert at 7 pm on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013 at The Pasadena Playhouse to raise critical funds for the nonprofit organization, Five Acres. Crosby and Nash will break from their world tour for one night only in celebration of Five Acres’ 125th anniversary and the critical work the social services agency provides to over 6,500 children and families in crisis each year. This exclusive concert is open to the general public with proceeds benefiting Five Acres’ Permanency Fund – to ensure the agency’s long-term commitment to children and families in crisis.

About Five Acres:
Five Acres is a pioneer in providing successful solutions that ensure safety, well-being and permanency for children and their families. Founded in 1888 as one of Los Angeles County’s first orphanages, Five Acres has been committed to preserving effective programs and developing more effective prevention services for children and families in crisis. Services include: residential care and education, a non-public WASC accredited school, mental health services in homes and schools, foster care and adoptions and domestic violence prevention. For more information, visit www.fiveacres.org or call 626-798-6793.

About David Crosby and Graham Nash:

As a duo, longtime creative partners David Crosby and Graham Nash bring out the best in each other, their distinct yet complementary styles balancing an equation that delivers a seamless and inspiring musical whole. Two-thirds and one-half, respectively, of Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, these Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are legendary for their airtight and crystal-clear vocal harmonies, as sublime when delivered by simply these two together as they are from the larger configurations. It is a sound that’s one of the true touchstones of the rock ‘n’ roll era. Native California David Crosby and England-born Graham Nash first met and 1968. Together, they generate a magic that transcends their individual resumes and they carry their legacy of timeless songwriter, indelible vocals and peerless harmonies into the future.

iPad Not Connecting to WiFi Verizon MiFi JetPack
 

If you have experienced issues connecting to a wifi/mifi hot spot and have resorted to reseting network settings, refreshing the settings, rebooting, everything short of backing up and restoring from factory settings. Well I have what may be a solution. After spending an hour or so on this I decided to refresh the JetPack 890 back to factory default, and that still didn’t work, so I decided lets see what happens if we change the SSID name to something else, maybe shorter, so I called it “Verizon-JetPack1” and then tried to connect and viola, it connected.

So simple changing the name of the WIFI SSID resolved the issue, on a WIFI I had never been able to connect to.
Strange but true.

Some users have reported that resetting the network settings fixes the issue of “Unable to Join” errors.

Other iPads could connect to the default SSID, but one was just not able to, it had been updated to the latest software, so that was not it.

If anyone else has experienced this it would be good to know.

Which A Level Revision Style Is Right For You?
 

Which A Level Revision Style Is Right For You?

One of the best ways to get on top of your revision is to work out which revision style is right for you. Don’t worry if this sounds difficult – it’s surprisingly easy. Your education should have given you a good idea of how you work best, so let’s take a look at the possibilities.

Whether you are in state funded college or receiving a private education from Lansdowne College, for example, the revision is the same.  There are a few theories on learning styles, but one of the most common ones is known as the VARK model, which is simply an abbreviation of the following:

  • Visual
  • Auditory
  • Reading/Writing
  • Kinaesthetic

What does this mean, you might ask? Each of these is a type of learning – and therefore, a revision style. We’ll run through the general characteristics of each, and then give you some tips for each style. Hopefully this will help you figure out which revision style is best for you, and how to make use of it during your education.

Visual

Visual learners work best when they can use images and things that help them to visualise the work. If you struggle to listen to someone speaking, but find it really easy to memorise diagrams, you might just be a visual learner.

How can you make use of this? Start colour-coding your notes – this will allow you to focus on the visual side of things, assisting your memory. Use memory maps and diagrams in place of written notes to revise from. You could even start associating images with certain ideas – for instance, think of formulae in terms of their visual effect, or visualise the scenes happening in Shakespeare.

Auditory

Maybe you just prefer listening, and everything else is a distraction. If you find you learn best from people explaining something rather than reading then this is the style for you. If it sounds like you, then start recording your notes. Rather than re-reading them, put them on your MP3 player and listen to them as you go about your daily business. Some auditory learners find music helps, so coming up with songs and rhythm patterns about your notes can be an excellent memory tool.

Reading/Writing

If all of this sounds a bit over the top to you and you just prefer reading and writing then that may well be your learning style. If that is the case, writing and rewriting your notes is probably the most efficient method for you. However, don’t just rewrite them perfectly – work on compressing the same concepts into shorter and shorter explanations. This is great preparation for your exams!

Kinaesthetic

Do you fidget? Or perhaps you doodle? If you find you need to keep busy and move about as you learn, you’re probably a kinaesthetic learner. Walking around whilst reading or listening to lectures and doodling as you read passages are useful methods to a kinaesthetic learner. If you can make or model things, then this is the perfect use of your time, as it’s engaging your need to be doing something with your actual revision.

Of course, you may well be a combination of these, so make sure you pick and choose what sounds most useful to you for your time in education.
