About Oak Bluffs
map
Oak Bluffs is a Cape Cod town located on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The Town of Oak Bluffs was founded as Cottage City in 1880. In 1907 the name was changed because of the fast growing population and the resort needed to recognize that is was not a "Cottage City" any more.

Oak Bluffs is home to the Flying Horses Carousel which is the nation's oldest operating carousel. The carousel is one of two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876.

In the center of town there are hundreds of imaginative and colorful gingerbread cottages. They are the most perfectly preserved collection of Carpenter Gothic style architecture in the world!

Don Diablo

Dutch DJ / producer Don Diablo was born and raised in Holland and more recently moved to London where he is currently working on new material in between his global touring schedule. Past studio collaborations with artists like Kelis, Alex Clare, Diplo, Example, Dragonette and Noisia are standout examples of his diversity as a producer. Within the last twelve months Don dropped dancefloor bombs on Axwell's Axtone label, Nicky Romero's Protocol Recordings, Steve Angello's Size X imprint and several tracks on the Spinnin' Records label. Warner Brothers also asked Don to create the worldwide themesong for the highly anticipated "Batman Arkham Origins" game. The track and the accompanying video became an instant viral hit. His club anthem "Starlight (Could you be mine)" was debuted during the last SHM concerts, after Axwell signed it to his label, and shot straight into the Beatport top 5 after getting support from all the heavy hitters. After that Don managed to climb into the Beatport Top 10 with several other releases.Don's firm support from Pete Tong, who debuted no less than six of Don's releases in his BBC Radio1 show in 2013, as well as his recent residency at Las Vegas' hottest new superclub "Light" are more proof of a bright future ahead. Playing the Departures Ibiza closing party alongside Axwell & Ingrosso, his debut at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, a sold out solo tour in Asia and the USA plus closing of the year in New York City on Pier94 with Alesso are some of the more recent highlights in Don's busy touring schedule.

CAMBRIDGE – The Charles River Conservancy (CRC), in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), presents the 6th season of the Sunday Parkland Games. The free games and activities are held in the parklands on the banks of the Charles River, along Memorial Drive between the Weeks Footbridge and John F. Kennedy Street in Cambridge. During the games, this street is closed to cars. This year, the games will take place Sunday afternoons from 3:30pm to 6pm, starting June 22 through September 28. The conservancy is partnering with Knucklebones, a local athletic and events company, to provide athletic equipment and instruction for people of all ages and abilities. Games include bocce, beanbag toss, (mini) basketball, badminton, tetherball, hula-hoops, jump ropes, and more. The game equipment is sized for children as young as 3 up to adults. From 5pm to 6pm, Cambridge-based Karma Yoga will conduct one-hour yoga classes. Since 2009, the Sunday Parkland Games have been a part of the Charles River Conservancy’s efforts to encourage physical activity for children and families, making recreation opportunities easily accessible to urban residents. Other current Conservancy programs include enlisting 2,000 volunteers a year to help beautify and steward the parklands, building bridge underpasses for improved pedestrian and cycling access along the river pathway, working to bring back swimming to the Charles River, and developing a skate park at North Point in Cambridge.

Samantha Farrell LIVE at The Finnegan Barn
Samantha Farrell is a Boston based singer-songwriter who fuses folk, jazz, rhythm and blues with pop sensibilities. Described by Relix Magazine as having "a soulful mix of Van Morrison’s country hospitality, Ella Fitzgerald’s jazzy range and Fiona Apple’s modern honesty," she has developed a distinct and lilting style that's all her own.  She twirled onto the music scene a few years ago, when she moved from Los Angeles back to Boston to release her critically acclaimed album, Luminous. Produced by the late, great founding member and saxophonist for The Dave Matthews Band, LeRoi Moore, Luminous, a totally independent effort, soared to #7 on the national iTunes pop charts, while six of its songs scored placements on major cable network shows (CW, CBS, NBC). Her latest release, Softly Swooning World, is described as "an 18-minute love song to the universe and all things cosmic and lush, sweet and aching..." Born and raised in Western Mass, Samantha Farrell is thrilled to return to the Berkshires, backed by her full band and featuring an opening set by duo Spotted Tiger. www.SamanthaFarrell.bandcamp.com Spotted Tiger, led by violist Laurence Scudder and Erik White on guitar, is often rounded out by a malleable all-star combination of Boston area musicians, playing an inspiring variety of original music and hand-picked covers from an array of genres. www.SpottedTigerMusic.com ---  BYOB $15 suggested donation at the door, 100% goes to the artists We hope to see you there!

Data Science for Behavior Analysts - Irvine, CA
Data Science for Behavior Analysts Sponsored by The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Irvine Campus Join us on August 3rd, 2015, as we endeavor to break new ground in improving behavior by leading a one-of-a-kind workshop on data science. Offered to behavioral analysts, special education teachers, school psychologists, and parents of students with disabilities, we will teach you how to use data to improve the outcomes of all students.  The Chartlytics Workshop offers 7hrs of Type 2 BCBA credits Lead by Richard M. Kubina Jr., Ph.D., BCBAD, co-founder of Chartlytics, and Professor of Special Education at Pennsylvania State University, we will delve into the world of data analysis and how it can be applied to meaningfully improve current and future behaviors data analysis skills.  Identifying and describing behavior Today’s behavior analysts must observe, visually display, and determine the function of behavior. However, problems have started to creep into contemporary behavior analysis such as defining behavior using nouns (e.g., aggression, tantrum), improper verb forms (e.g., yelling, hitting), targets that lack movement (e.g., sitting still, being quiet), ambiguous verbs (e.g., understanding math facts, transition to social studies class), and social constructs (e.g., forgetting to use manners).  Our workshop helps participants learn by focusing more on how to “pinpoint” behavior. Chartlytics pinpoints have a movement cycle (action verbs plus noun) and context for where the behavior occurs, which make behavior analysts more effective when detecting behavior and communicating results to stake holders (e.g., parents, insurance companies, fellow behavior analysts).  Data recording Two major complications exist for counting and recording behavior, 1. using percent correct as the main decision making metric and 2. using interval records which do not reflect the fundamental properties. Research shows interval recording either under or overestimates the occurrence of behavior. Workshop participants will learn how to easily measure behavior with frequency, latency, and duration of these factors, as well as engage in data recording exercises to understand why frequency, latency, and duration serve as an eminently better data medium than interval records.  Graphical display Nonstandard linear graphs (NLG) pervade behavior analysis. Recent research show numerous problems associated with NLGs including improper scale proportions (leading to exaggerated or depressed trend and variability), scaling and labelling errors, and illegible data points. As a result, visual analysis is negatively affected. The present workshop will provide all attendees the skills to use the Standard Celeration Chart (SCC). The SCC not only rectifies all the previously mentioned problems, but it elevates the science of behavior by providing a true standard for judging the significance of behavioral change. Many other advantages will be discussed and demonstrated. About the Presenter Richard M. Kubina Jr., Ph.D., BCBA-D, taught special education in private schools specializing in post-acute brain trauma rehabilitation for three years. Currently, Dr. Kubina is the Professor of Special Education at Pennsylvania State University and teaches courses on methods for teaching reading, informal assessment, behavior analysis, and single case design. Dr. Kubina also conducts wide-ranging research in the area of Applied Behavior Analysis, Precision Teaching, and graphical display of data. He is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Doctoral level, and serves on a number of editorial boards for behavioral and special education journals.  Dr. Kubina is also the cofounder of Chartlytics, a company dedicated to making the world a better place through science and thoughtful, behavior engineering. FAQs  What are the objectives of the workshop? What will I learn? -State how pinpointing is used to make daily instruction/practice targets. -Compare interval recording and frequency data and state how frequency adds more precision and accuracy for observing behavior. -Count behaviors and calculate frequencies. Identify limitations nonstandard linear charts have for analyzing time-series data. -Chart behavioral data on a Standard Celeration Chart and identify the celeration value. -Develop a celeration-based analysis of problem behavior. -Discuss applications of Standard Celeration Charting for common acceleration and deceleration targets. -Identify how to manage replacement and prosocial behaviors in a structured manner.  Is there an abstract of the workshop I can share with colleagues?  Behavior analysts must observe, visually display, and determine the function of behavior. Workshop participants will learn how to “pinpoint” behavior. Pinpoints have a movement cycle (action verbs plus noun) and context for where the behavior occurs. Workshop participants will also learn how to easily measure behavior with frequency, latency, and duration. Participants will take part in data recording exercises and see how frequency, latency, and duration provide more information than interval records. The present workshop will demonstrate common problems with data display and subsequent data analysis in nonstandard line graphs. Learning how to use the Standard Celeration Chart for time series behavior has several advantages for the practicing behavior analyst, all of which will be discussed and practiced with workshop attendees. Participants will use the Standard Celeration Chart to chart behavioral data, employ basic data analysis (e.g., celeration, bounce or variability), and communicate data in a standard fashion with staff, clients, and parents. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? We are hosting the workshop at the: The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Irvine Campus University Center 4th Floor 4199 Campus Dr. Irvine, CA 92612 This building is in the shopping center, University Center. The building is the only multi-story building (and it is white). Parking is free and people can park anywhere near the building except directly behind which is where employees park- there are signs clearly marking that parking area. Take the elevator to the 4th floor. There will be a receptionist upon walking off the elevator to guide everyone with where to go.  Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email us at info@chartlytics.com  Is my registration/ticket transferrable? Yes, you may transfer your ticket to another person to go in your place. Can I update my registration information? Yes.  Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No.  What is the refund policy? Generally no, we encourage you to transfer your ticket if possible.  The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay? Yes.  Are you serving lunch? Lunch is on your own, or with a new friend you met at the workshop. There are many nearby restaurants. We will have snacks for break however.
