Big Guy Yoga for beginners
This is the class for the person who says, I cant do yoga; I cant even touch my toes, the one who takes a little longer to shake out the kinks when they get out of bed in the morning, the person who thinks theyre too heavy to do anything, let alone exercise, and the golfer who finds their swing isnt as smooth as it once was. During this class, participants will learn the basics of meditation, breathing, and yoga postures, along with the opportunity discover that regular yoga practice can help in lowering stress and blood pressure, regulating blood flow to important organs and systems, and allowing us to regain peace of mind.

Big Guy Yoga, where you dont have to be big, you dont have to be a guy, and the only thing that needs to be open and flexible is the mind.



timthumbAlan Haines is not your typical yogi. At 62 and over 230 pounds, he understands only too well the perception that one has to be extremely fit, thin, or flexible to practice yoga. He teaches with a light-hearted banter, along with constant reminders of the union of breath and movement. With an emphasis not so much on the look of posture as much as the feel of his every-person approach to yoga and his gift of putting people at ease, provides a comfortable environment for practitioners of all builds, backgrounds, and ages to explore the benefits of yoga.

Cost: $17 per class (Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:15:00 )

Defamation - A Play by Todd Logan
Race, class, religion, and law collide when an African American businesswoman from Chicago's South Side sues a Jewish real estate developer from the North Shore for defamation in this thought-provoking courtroom drama by playwright and author Todd Logan '75. With the audience serving as jury, the play offers a fresh means of generating constructive dialogue about the ways in which deeply personal, highly-charged issues continue to divide us. A case without a smoking gun, DEFAMATION challenges our preconceptions and invites self-examination that can be at once unsettling and revelatory.

Clark alumnus Todd Logan is a playwright, filmmaker, and humorist. His plays, "Botanic Garden" (directed by Olympia Dukakis), "Tops or Bottoms", "Persistence of Vision", "Fallout", and "The Playwright and All That Crap" have appeared in Chicago over the last several years. His humor pieces have appeared in many publications, including The New York Times, The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, and Writers Digest.

Friday Night in the Higgins Lounge - A Special Halloween Event
The appeal of frightening tales is complex and contradictory. Scary stories get our hearts racing; make us feel both small and invincible; permit us to confront death; and awaken us from the stupor of everyday life.

As Halloween approaches, join us as Professors Gino DiIorio (Visual and Performing Arts), Jay Elliott (English), and Jennifer Plante (Writing Center) offer readings of their favorite scary stories. Why do we welcome things that go bump in the night?

This event is part of the Higgins School's Fall 2014 Dialogue Symposium, "Tell Me a Story: Exploring the Power of Narrative." This semester, our programming will explore storytelling as a form of personal and artistic expression and as a scholarly methodology that crosses and connects disciplines. For a complete list of symposium events, visit www.clarku.edu/higgins.

Title: Series Expansions for the All-time Maximum of alpha-stable Random Walks.Abstract: We study random walks whose increments are alpha-stable distributions with shape parameter 1 < alpha < 2. Specifically, assuming a mean increment size which is negative, we provide series expansions in terms of the mean increment size for the probability that the all-time maximum of an alpha-stable random walk is equal to zero and, in the totally skewed to the left case of beta=-1, for the expected value of the all-time maximum of an alpha-stable random walk. Our proofs also cover the Gaussian case of alpha=2 and beta=0 for which previous results have already been obtained in the literature using different techniques. Key ingredients in our proofs are Spitzer's identity for random walks and Zolotarev's integral representation for the CDF of an alpha-stable random variable. We also discuss an application of our results to a problem arising in queueing theory. This is joint work with Cliff Hurvich.When4:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Friday, October 10, 2014LocationMCS 148

ODESZA


In 2012, Seattle production duo ODESZA began as a recording project between Harrison Mills (aka Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) after graduating from Western Washington University. Their first release, Summer's Gone, was a mixture of dreamy, sun trickled melodies, glitched out vocals, crunchy drums and large sweeping bass lines. Two tracks from Summer's Gone, "How Did I Get Here" and "iPlayYouListen," reached #1 on the Hype Machine Popular chart, cementing the duo as a force in the underground electronic community.
2013 saw the release of the My Friends Never Die EP with three of the five tracks hitting #1 on Hype Machine. Relentless touring followed, including dates with Pretty Lights, Emancipator, Michal Menert, and performances at Sasquatch Music Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, What The Festival, Summer Meltdown, Capitol Hill Block Party, MusicfestNW, Decibel Festival and Symbiosis Gathering. The duo was playing to larger and larger crowds when Pretty Lights tapped ODESZA to be the support act on the fall Pretty Lights tour and to remix "One Day They'll Know," which also hit #1 on Hype Machine and #8 on the iTunes Electronic Chart. Also in 2013, ODESZA selected their favorite producers for a follow up remix EP, My Friends Never Die Remixes, and launched the ambitious, ongoing mixtape series NO.SLEEP.

February 2014 brought the release of the ODESZA single “Sun Models (feat. Madelyn Grant)” off the forthcoming new album which also hit #1 on Hype Machine. In March 2014 ODESZA’s remix of Pretty Lights’ “Lost And Found” was released on the DIVERGENT movie soundtrack and hit #1 on Hype Machine, the duo’s eighth #1 on Hype Machine.

ODESZA’s first headlining tour this spring has numerous sold out shows across the country before playing Coachella.

Ellis Paul in Concert
Saturday, May 3, 2014 $23 Members, $25 Non-Members(General tickets) Woody Guthrie's daughter, Nora, says of Ellis Paul, "A singer and songwriter is only as good as the times he reflects. Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses, marking in melodies and poems where we've been and where we might go if we so choose to. Personally Ellis, I'm goin' where you're goin'!" Ellis Paul is a critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet, and troubadour originally hailing from a potato farming family in northern Maine, and began performing locally while attending Boston College. He is the recipient of thirteen Boston Music Awards, second only to multi-platinum act, Aerosmith. Over the course of fifteen years, Ellis Paul has built a vast catalog of music, which weds striking poetic imagery and philosophical introspection with hook-laden melodies. His 2011 release "The Day after Everything Changed" was recorded in Nashville, and features five songs co-written by his good friend, Kristian Bush of Sugarland. Recent releases include two award winning family albums and a holiday album. Ellis Paul's latest new fan-funded studio album, "Chasing Beauty", is set for release in March 2014. "Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential of his music." New York Times
