Photo courtesy: Random Acts of Dance CollectiveRADCO is a local dance troupe whose mission is to collaborate with our community to celebrate dance and movement.  Through workshops and eclectic performances we educate, entertain, expand perceptions, and explore limits. RADCO, founded in 1999, is an eclectic and ever-morphing group dedicated to creating dances generally within the genre of modern/contemporary dance. Our dances range anywhere along the spectrum from completely improvised to choreographed and rehearsed, from very serious to insanely silly. RADCO is open to dancers at all levels and encourages and supports new choreographers. RADCO members range in age and experience from decades to novice. Our group is a state non-profit organization, working towards federal non-profit status.  We are not affiliated with any school or business, but participants share the joy of dance, and we often collaborate with and involve the community in that joy as performance opportunities arise.“Random Waters:  Dance in the Fountain” embodies our mission in our diverse modern and contemporary dance styles. One of our founders, Susan Gresia, was recently interviewed by Oly Arts.  Susan says: “I always wanted to do a piece outdoors, an environmental piece, so I’ve been really excited about this performance. Since this fountain was built, it’s been a great place for people to congregate and for kids to play. The dynamics of water, the shooting jets, the sound, the location — It all makes it a joyous place to be.”The Random Waters performance will take place in the center of Heritage Park Fountain and will include community collaboration and the use of costumes and props including flippers, snorkels and umbrellas.“We’re hoping to have structured improv in the piece if the audience is willing,” continued Gresia. “I’m also hoping to have live music so anyone in the community can dance to live drums.”RADCO envisions a world in which dance and movement inspire people to connect, be courageous, and create. Over the years, RADCO has danced in many venues in the Olympia area.  We have put on performances at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts during Arts Walk.  We have also performed in the Olympia Dance Festival, sponsored by Johansen Olympia Dance Center.  We regularly perform at the Illuminated Ball in support of Earthbound Production’s Procession of the Species. On October 6, we will once again be on the Washington Center main stage during Arts Walk dancing to live music performed by The Gravity Quartet.  We love performing in this community.  It has shown us so much support over the years.  We look forward to many more years of bringing eclectic dance to our community.last_img read more

Inspired by Political Events, A Show Of Unity In Red Bank

first_imgBy John Burton|RED BANK – It wasn’t just women who came to a rally at Riverside Gardens Park last Saturday.“More than 50 percent of our population is women,” said Errol Logan, a Bound Brook resident who traveled to Red Bank last Saturday to participate in the gathering. “So, it’s important to show our support for women and their issues. “Women’s rights are human rights,” Logan said.Logan was one of what organizers estimated were roughly 500 people – men and women from a wide range of ages, many with young children in tow – who gathered at the borough’s Riverside Gardens Park on the afternoon of Jan. 21.The intent of the rally, organized by the recently formed Greater Red Bank Women’s Initiative, was to show solidarity with the worldwide series of marches and rallies taking place that day. Those marches, initially in support of women’s issues, also came to include concerns over the environment, civil liberties and immigrant rights in light of comments made by President Donald J. Trump leading up to the election and since taking the oath of office on Jan. 20. Many of the participants were wearing the same pink hats visible at the events in New York City, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere. They held signs expressing their views and concerns.The Red Bank event, according to one of the organizers, Ellen Herman, was intended as a nonpartisan expression in the spirit of Red Bank’s tradition of fostering diversity and inclusion. But, as fellow organizer Suellen Sims said in her remarks to the crowd later that afternoon, “That diversity is always an ephemeral quality that can be extinguished too early.” Naulty has “major concerns about this administration’s changes to environmental regulations” and stressed how important it is to “protect this world and all who live in it.”Rubina Tareen, a Muslim who traveled from Pennsylvania to participate in the rally, told the gathering she came to combat fear-mongering. “We gather here today to meet ignorance with understanding,” she said.Red Bank resident Barbara Boas said she attended Saturday’s rally because she was concerned about the direction the nation could be taking with the new administration, especially concerning public education. “It’s not a protest,” she maintained about the day’s activities, “but an announcement that we are here and we’re not going anywhere.”“I felt strongly enough and wanted to be a part of something,” said Nicole Korman, Howell, who came with her 2-year-old son, Logan. “Clearly, something has to be done to keep our ideals.”“The real question,” asked Herman, “is where do we go from here?”“I truly believe the antidote is to get involved,” Sims said.Tim McLoone, the local restaurateur and musician who is active on many community fronts, served as the event’s M.C. and said he believed there is always something to be done. “If you can’t change the wind,” he reminded the crowd, “you can at least adjust your sails.”Lynn Cremona, Neptune, vowed to stay active and offered a warning. “If they thought we were uppity feminists before,” she said, “watch the next four years.” Sims said the day after Trump’s election it was important to reaffirm the shared beliefs of many in attendance. Of the treatment of the immigrant population everywhere, she asked, “Should they be tarnished as ‘the other’?”Several hundred people gathered at Red Bank’s Riverside Gardens Park on Saturday afternoon in a show of unity.

Jessica Brendler Naulty, senior pastor for the United Methodist Church, 247 Broad St., “is basic human decency.”last_img read more

Funnily plenty of i was in a low cost shop in the past week – and what did i see – except this supplying it 3 stars as it looks like it will be okay for its goal (a stocking filler) – on the other hand i would recommend hunting in your local pound/two euro stores prior to acquiring thisokay i’m upping this by a star – my spouse nonetheless makes use of this and really likes it – as i reported it still seems like a low cost piece of plastic – even so she says its much better than the crappy brushes that appear with the dye kits.I am always obtaining into a mess when using dwelling dye kits (splashes close up all over the place) so i made a decision to get this package. It’s amazingly greater than i envisioned much too. I will upload pictures on listed here. The brushes are great and large and two bowl is deep. The brushes remaining so large usually means they can evenly utilize dye to the hair in its place of utilizing the one nozzle on residence dyes that i need to have to apply then perform in with fingers.A great deal even bigger than i believed so quite pleased. The bowl is the dimensions of a small. A great deal even bigger than i assumed so pretty pleased. The bowl is the measurement of a small canine dish the brushes are huge ( all over twenty cm extended with a three cm extensive brush for the wider 1). They clear very easily following a tint work.This merchandise was superior but i observed it in savers two times right after. This merchandise was very good but i saw it in savers two times immediately after i ordered this marginally much less expensive but with a cost-free apparent zip-up bag.Does the occupation, place the color in, mix. Does the occupation, put the colour in, blend it, unfold it on, of course, this is a colouring brush and bowl set thanking you kindly.Extraordinary cost for what you get.

The bowl is easy for its measuring purposes if needed and it’s so uncomplicated to clean up, the brushes are all practical. I imagine we all assume that we want the one particular, but the excess brushes are convenient for there works by using way too.Packaging was a little bit tatty but it didnt have an impact on the set itself. Feel it was overpriced but it does the career and it was effortless to order on the net.last_img read more

California DMV to authorize fully driverless vehicles on roads

It follows similar legislation passed in Michigan late last year.Automakers and tech firms are required to have a driver in the front-seat at the present time, to take control if the vehicle malfunctions. In California, manufacturers also need to send detailed travel logs to the DMV.See Also: Google asks judge to halt Uber’s self-driving program“This is really the next step to moving forward the driverless testing and also the public use,” said DMV spokeswoman Jessica Gonzalez. “A number of manufacturers will be ready to move forward with driverless testing over the next year to make this happen.”Cars will not be completely autonomous, an engineer would still need to keep watch of the vehicle from a remote location. The DMV did not say if it needs to be one-on-one monitoring, or if one engineer can monitor a fleet of vehicles.The DMV also wants the police and other enforcement agencies to be able to take control and move an autonomous vehicle from the road, if it is malfunctioning.People, get ready…to climb aboardWhile the rules have not been finalized, there is some talk of the DMV allowing regular commuters to travel in the autonomous vehicles, similar to rules in Arizona, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.The new rules will be enacted by November at the earliest, giving manufacturers more than half a year to prepare for the transition.
