Event on 2013-11-17 18:00:00

Riotously funny! An all new comedy creation from the twisted mind of Strassman. Alternate realities? Parallel universes? Strassman's side-splitting new show
tumbles down the rabbit hole — a mind-bending journey where nothing is as itseems.

Chuck and Ted E. Bare are back, transformed by a strange 'wish" into bizzaroalternate selves. The road home may be scary for Strassman… but an hilarious
scream for us!

What have the critics said? At the Edinburgh Festival, The List said “Absolute genius. The writing is truly superb and the performance – or should that be
performances? – breathtaking in linguistic and ventriloquistic dexterity. Takes the ancient art of ventriloquism up several notches.”

Wordcatcher Phil Cousineau and John Cleese Return to the Air on Global Spirit on LinkTV

(PRWEB) May 13, 2013

Global Spirit takes a global approach to the exploration of human consciousness, bringing viewers the most compelling ideas, practices and distilled wisdom from different cultures throughout the world. Global Spirit returns to LinkTV on Sunday, May 12 On Sundays, and will continue to air on Sundays at 9pm PT & 9pm ET.

Presented by John Cleese and hosted by author Phil Cousineau, each Global Spirit program offers insight into some of mankind’s oldest existential questions, tracing our collective human journey in the timeless quest for truth, wisdom and understanding.

“The discussions on the ‘Global Spirit’ series are sorely needed in this dispirited and disenchanted world. In many ways it is more important than journalism today.” – Bill Moyers

“Each week [Global Spirit] brings together scholars and other experts from different religious and philosophical backgrounds, not to sell a faith or argue hot-button issues, but to discuss universal themes like forgiveness or the nature of the spiritual journey.” – New York Times

The Painted Word

A Treasure Chest of Remarkable Words and Their Origins

By Phil Cousineau

Lore for Logophiliacs and Word Hoarders

Deepak Chopra calls author Phil Cousineau a “word wizard” and NPR’s Susan Stamberg hailed his Wordcatcher as a must-read “because it’s fun.” Cousineau, linguistic detective and dictionary delver, is back with a priceless treasury of word stories and literary obscura that will enchant any lover of language. The words themselves range from the commonplace, such as biscuit, a twice-baked cake for Roman soldiers, to loanwords like chaparral, courtesy of Basque shepards who came to the American West; from word-reversals such as silly, which evolved from “holy” to “goofy” in a mere thousand years, and to words well worthy of revival, such as carrytale, a wandering storyteller. Cousineau’s journey through the history and mystery of words will enlighten as it delights.


An Odyssey into the World of Weird and Wonderful Words

By Phil Cousineau

The world’s preeminent mythology scholar explores the mystery and meaning of marvelous words

Who knew that the great country of Canada is named for a mistake? How about “bedswerver,” the best Elizabethan insult to hurl at a cheating boyfriend? Author Phil Cousineau explores the obscure territory of word origins with great erudition and endearing curiosity. The English poet W. H. Auden was once asked to teach a poetry class for 20 students. Two hundred applied to study with him. When asked how he chose his students, he said he picked the ones who actually loved words. So too, with this bookit takes a special wordcatcher to create a treasure chest of remarkable words and their origins, and any word lover will relish the stories that Cousineau has discovered.

Phil Cousineau is an award-winning writer and filmmaker, teacher and editor, independent scholar and travel leader, storyteller and TV host. Currently the host of PBSs Global Spirit television series, Cousineau has published 26 nonfiction books and has 15 scriptwriting credits to his name. His books have been translated into nine languages. While moonlighting in a steel factory he studied journalism at the University of Detroit. Before turning to writing books and films full-time, Cousineaus peripatetic career included stints as a sportswriter, playing semi-pro basketball in Europe, harvesting date trees on an Israeli kibbutz, painting 44 Victorian houses in San Francisco, and teaching screenwriting at the American Film Institute. For the past 25 years he has enjoyed his life-long dream of being a full-time freelance writer, filmmaker and sports coach.

The Latest Arts & Education Research Featured at Sciences Social Network

Mannheim, Germany (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

ScienceIndex.com is a Social Sciences Network newly featuring the latest Arts and Education Research. The site was established in 1998 to index the very latest news, headlines, references and resources from science journals, books and websites worldwide. The site covers news in all fields of biology, business, chemistry, engineering, geography, health, mathematics and society. In the field of Society Sciences, the site has now included the two new categories Arts and Education. While the Arts section covers objects subject to aesthetic criteria such as paintings, sculptures, and drawings, the Education section deals with the act or process of imparting or acquiring particular knowledge or skills, as for a profession.

ScienceIndex.com’s Social Research Category covers the totality of social relationships among humans. Its twelve sections include anthropology, archaeology, arts, education, family, history, law and crime, linguistics, literature, philosophy, politics, and religion. Users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to ScienceIndex.com’s Social Research RSS feed.

ScienceIndex.com’s new Arts section covers objects subject to aesthetic criteria such as paintings, sculptures, and drawings. It currently contains 2,929 articles partly derived from over 175 scientific Arts journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through an Arts Research RSS feed. One of the latest additions to this section covers representation and intentionality in bilingual television and theater for youth in the United States. This article examines the goals and outcomes of theatrical productions that claim to celebrate bilingualism and multiculturalism in the USA and explores questions including how a country reconciles its hostility toward immigration with its desire to capitalize on marketing Latino/a cartoon characters to children. Another article investigates Theseus and Shakespeare for the politics of their poets. It provides a wider context for the character’s pronouncements by considering the ancient quarrel between philosophy and poetry and early modern poetic theories and brings new insights into Theseus and the political implications of his comments on poetry.

ScienceIndex.com’s new Education section deals with the act or process of imparting or acquiring particular knowledge or skills, as for a profession. It currently contains over 16,376 articles partly derived from over 550 scientific Education journals. The latest articles in this section are also available through an Education Research RSS feed. One recently included article in this section covers public/private partnerships and the democratization of education. This article analyzes the public-private relation and its consequences for the democratic management of schools in Brazil. The authors conclude that the relationship between public and private are manifested in the current period both in terms of change of ownership, and in relation to what remains in state ownership, but rearranges educational processes in the logic of the market. Another article in this section covers the role of mathematics anxiety from parental involvement to children’s mathematical performance. The study includes low-income, ethnic minority parents and their children residing in a large urban center in the United States and its results indicate that parents influence children’s mathematics achievement by reducing mathematics anxiety, particularly for more difficult kinds of mathematics. The authors conclude that policies and programs targeting parental involvement in mathematics should focus on home-based practices that do not require technical mathematical skills. Parents should receive training, resources, and support on culturally appropriate ways to create home learning environments that foster high expectations for children’s success in mathematics.

The Sciences Social Network currently contains over 1.48 million posts distributed among its’ 75 categories. 92,758 users monitor over 15,110 journals publishing within the scope of the site. Due to an continuously improved publishing process, the delay between original publication and appearance at ScienceIndex.com is now no more than three hours. The site provides an advanced search feature which suggests up to ten closely related articles for a search and for every displayed post.
