Water and its remarkable physical properties make life on earth possible. In this conference we will pay particular attention to water's role in regulating climate through its capacity to store, move and transfer more heat than any other natural compound. Water is a planetary thermostat, and even with elevated greenhouse gases in the atmosphere it can cool the biosphere and address destructive feedbacks in the climate system. Good water management is a facet of good land management, which we covered broadly at last year's conference, Restoring Ecosystems to Reverse Global Warming. This year we will carefully examine the water cycle, how we can have a dramatic positive influence on it, and in so doing successfully address drought, floods, soil health, food production and climate. Although water and carbon travel together, water cycles can be restored even more quickly than soil sequestration can reduce atmospheric carbon levels. Thus, while we're addressing greenhouse gases, we can significantly cool the surface of the earth to mitigate and even reverse the damage done to date by elevated planetary temperatures.

This is a one-afternoon, no preparation required "taste of Model United Nations" conference designed specifically for fourth, fifth and sixth grade students by the ARMUN High School and Middle School Clubs. Students will learn specific skills such as public speaking, debate, and negotiation skills, as well as substantive material such as a great deal about the country they represent and the world issue that is our topic for debate. They will also be challenged to use their creative thinkng and problem solving skills to try to find workable solutions to the problem presented by the issue. New this year, at this our fourth MiniMUN, the last 90 or so minutes of the conference, just before Closing Ceremonies, will be spent doing a hands-on project to make a tangible difference in people's lives in relation to the topic we have spent the afternoon debating. Although a registration fee is requested to cover our expenses, sliding scale or fee waiver is available upon request utilizing an honor-system. Rather than registering via Eventbrite and paying on-line, in which case we do not get the funds til 10 days AFTER the conference, we would prefer you email your information to email@example.com and we will email you instructions for paying by check. Thank you.

Let me introduce to you Sisters in Song, group of beautiful and very gifted musicians I am proud to now call my Sisters. With my longtime friend Jeff Pietrantoni, we formed this new group in 2011 and were very proud to produce our FIRST musical production in September/October 2011 called A BEAUTIFUL PAIR. All proceeds from this wonderful musical revue were donated to Ellie Fund, a local organization supporting Massachusetts breast cancer patients and their families (www.elliefund.org). Read more about our concert by clicking on the following link. (http://www.wickedlocal.com/melrose/news/lifestyle/x155801925/Local-group-helps-breast-cancer-patients-survive-the-cure#axzz1agUCQWOh) Jeff has been a long time devotee of musical theatre and I, a true fan of all types of music. Jeff had been brainstorming for a few years about getting a group together in order to give back to our communities through music which, in his words, “heals the soul”. I was thrilled when he asked me to chair this concept alongside him and even prouder that the group wanted to continue its efforts in 2012 and beyond. Unfortunately, my Breast Cancer diagnosis in 2012 prevented me from doing a show and so the 2012 concert was “postponed”. Who would have thought that I, after performing to raise money for the Ellie Fund in 2011, would require their support and services just a few months later? I believe that fate and faith have brought Sisters in Song and the Ellie Fund together. “A BEAUTIFUL PAIR2, LOVE HEALS” was performed October 2013. " A BEAUTIFUL PAIR3, NO DAY BUT TODAY" was performed October 2014 raising $7000 for Ellie Fund! Please help us beat that number in 2015! I hope to see many of you at one of the performances and, if you’re not local or cannot make any of the shows, please consider making a donation to this worthy cause. Checks can be made out to Sisters In Song and mailed to 1 Converse Street, Wakefield, MA 01880! To make a donation online, go to www.elliefund.org, and click DONATE TODAY. There is a “special option” section where you can choose SISTERS IN SONG.

The 2015 Tufts Scramble is two-day immersion specifically to train us--emerging student innovators and founders--in how to succeed where most student-led ventures fail. Throughout the weekend, students will brainstorm potential venture platforms, construct teams, connect with experts and professionals, work with coaches, connect with funders, and gain a wealth of information on how to take the first steps in a project with real world magnitude. Venture ideas may range anywhere from high-tech products to social impact initatives. Whether you already have an idea or team in mind or are ready to take on emerging concepts, each student-team will skill-build, model, and pitch their venture idea to a panel of business and civil service leaders by the end of the session.
