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!

Intelligent Swarming Insights: One Day Workshop - Waltham, Mass

Swarming improves our ability to create relevant skills. Skills development enables an increase in:

  • Customer loyalty
  • Employee loyalty
  • Operational efficiency


The tiered support model of the past 35 years is giving way to a new structure and process: a better way to align people with work.

Intelligent swarming is a collaboration-based model that seeks to get the person, or people, most likely to be able to solve an issue working on that issue on the first touch.

The benefits of collaboration are well understood by support staff; they do it quite naturally. And, they often collaborate in spite of the traditional tiered support model and escalation processes that we have imposed on them. What if we created processes and structures that enabled collaboration? Early adopters of swarming are reporting compelling benefits including faster skills development, improved employee morale, and increased customer satisfaction.

Intelligent Swarming is not a new topic for the Consortium for Service Innovation. But in the past few years, a handful of member companies have implemented the swarming concepts, albeit in very different ways, but all with great success.

This one-day Intelligent Swarming Insights workshop provides:

  • An explanation of the principles
  • A summary of case studies, benefits and lessons learned from the early adopters
  • Details on the qualification criteria: swarming is not for everybody
  • Insight to the critical key enablers
  • 7 scenarios to consider in designing the process
  • Tool functionality and integration requirements

In addition, it parses specific proposals, both successful and less effective, in an attempt to offer some hands-on tools for mastering the skill of successful proposal writing.

HR Legal Update 2014 – What Employers Need to Know (Boston, MA)

HR Legal Update 2014

What Employers Need to Know

  

2014 has seen more rulings, court decisions and challenges to existing laws. Join our HR Division President, Lauren Brenner and Attorney Joseph Laferrera of Gesmer Updegrove LLP for an HR Legal Update to educate yourself on pertinent changes and interpretations in state and federal laws, NLRB decisions and EEOC guidelines, including:

  • President Obama’s last 3 appointments to the NLRB were ruled invalid. What does this mean for recent NLRB decisions including Banner Health System’s ruling which severely hampered an employer’s ability to investigate workplace misconduct?
  • NLRB’s recent rulings:
    • An employer’s policy regarding inappropriate behavior in the workplace violated the employee’s NLRA rights
    • Liking a Facebook page is considered concerted activity
    • Derogatory employee comments on an employer’s Facebook page is considered protected concerted activity
    • EEOC’s new pregnancy discrimination guidelines and ADA Accommodations for pregnant employees.
    • Bullying in the workplace – in the wake of California’s recent bullying in the workplace training requirement, what are the obligations of employers even without a specific workplace bullying law?
    • Next steps in the Affordable Care Act
    • The recent FMLA decision and its impact for employers:
      • What should an employer do if employees state they never received FMLA notice given the Mailbox Rule was dismissed by U.S. Court of Appeals?
      • Expert testimony is not needed to prove an employee was incapacitated?
      • The employee has used their FMLA time, and an employer cannot deny intermittent leave?
      • 21st century documentation challenges:
        • Cloud-based storage
        • E-mails and other electronic documents
        • Proper treatment of archives and back ups

  

Presenting this program will be

Green, Green Grass of Home
Harvard Film Archive
Sat., Oct. 4, 2014, 9 – 10:30 p.m.



Hou’s third film is the last with any real link to the Taiwanese love-story genre, made as it is on the eve of the emergence of Taiwan’s New Wave. It is also the most complex and subtle of the three, earning Hou his first Golden Horse nomination (Taiwan’s equivalent of the Academy Awards). “The Green, Green Grass of Home is set wholly in a village, where the up-and-down courtship between two primary-school teachers is overshadowed by the crises in the lives of the townspeople. Blending an episodic romance with children’s family problems and the pollution of the local river, Green, Green Grass compares favorably with Ozu’s lyrical comedies of the 1930s.” (David Bordwell)

The IAEA's Nuclear Safeguards Culture: What is it and Does it Matter?
Fainsod Room, Littauer Building - Room 324
Wed., Oct. 1, 2014, 10 – 11:30 a.m.



In this Project on Managing the Atom seminar, MTA/ISP Senior Research Fellow Trevor Findlay will employ organizational culture theory to dissect the nuclear safeguards culture of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The origins and evolution of the culture since the IAEA's founding in 1957 will be examined, including the extent to which it reflects the organizational culture of the Agency as a whole and that of the United Nations. Differences between safeguards culture and safety and security cultures will be explored. A key question is the extent to which the Agency's safeguards culture has changed since the strengthening of nuclear safeguards following the discovery of Iraq's illicit nuclear weapons program in the early 1990s. The presentation will conclude with findings about the current state of the culture, the discontinuities it faces and what the IAEA might do about it. The research for this project is being funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

Sorcerer (William Friedkin in Person)
Harvard Film Archive
Fri., Sep. 26, 2014, 7 – 9 p.m.



Four seedy criminal outcasts risk their lives in pursuit of redemption, both legal and moral, by driving unreliable trucks stocked with nitroglycerine through dangerous landscape to cap an oil well fire in a Central American banana republic. Featuring a trance-like score by Tangerine Dream and a visceral, astonishing performance by Roy Scheider, Friedkin's reinterpretation of the novel on which Clouzot based his 1953 masterpiece is among Friedkin’s most daring works. Three sequences alone—a chaotic car crash in New Jersey, the unloading of charred bodies in a Central American village, and the explosives laden trucks crossing a rickety storm-blown bridge—render Sorcerer a classic and retain their power to make audiences gasp. Released the same year as Star Wars, Friedkin's audacious masterpiece represents the braver road abandoned by the studio system.

A Summer at Grandpa's
Harvard Film Archive
Fri., Oct. 3, 2014, 7 – 8:40 p.m.



The first of Hou’s so-called coming-of-age trilogy (followed by Dust in the Wind and A Time to Live and a Time to Die) seems at first to be the lighter of his early works, a deliberately minor childhood tale made with child actors and largely adapting their point-of-view. Yet despite its bucolic setting and shimmering images Hou’s story of two young siblings visiting their grandfather in verdant rural Taiwan while their sick mother is hospitalized quickly turns unexpectedly dark by revealing the blunt insensitivity, menace and cruelty of the adult world, a world of deception, sexual promiscuity and irrational fear of the death that the wide-eyed children accept with more grace and understanding than their elders. Often cited as a secret precursor to Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Hou’s little known early work uses its child protagonists as a lens through which to define the detached, understated realism that remains a key to Hou’s cinema.

Cute Girl AKA Lovable You
Harvard Film Archive
Fri., Oct. 3, 2014, 9 – 10:30 p.m.



Hou’s light first feature finds him beginning his career as a director by working in the vein of the romantic comedies so prevalent in Taiwanese cinema at the time. The musical stars two singer-actors (Kenny Bee and Feng Fei-fei) playing a pair of star-crossed lovers who meet in the countryside although Feng is already promised to a serious young man studying abroad. The fact that Bee plays a developer whose sentimental education includes learning to love nature looks forward not only to the environmental messages in The Green, Green Grass of Home but, more broadly, to the importance of landscape in Hou’s work.

The Boys from Fengkuei
Harvard Film Archive
Sat., Oct. 4, 2014, 7 – 8:40 p.m.



Among Hou’s strongest early films, The Boys from Fengkuei offers a portrait of aimless youth as an emblem of eighties Taiwan in transition and moving rapidly towards an uncertain future. Hou’s avid cinephilia imparts the film with a citational over-ripeness: the restless group of boys in the small seaside town recalling Fellini’s I Vitelloni, while their travels to the big glittering city echo Rocco and His Brothers, the same film the boys rush to see in a Taipei art house. Yet the Italian cinema overstated throughout the film is in many ways a distraction from Hou’s clear embrace of the spontaneous male ruffianism of Hawks and Scorsese and the transcendental everyday of Ozu and Malick. For all of its metacinematic charms, Boys from Fengkuei remains a milestone for giving first expression to the elliptical episodic narrative so central to Hou’s mature cinema and pointing towards that evocative sense, redolent throughout his greatest films, of the present moment as perfumed by the past it is about to become, with friendship and happiness and small victories revealed to be fleeting moments always about to be lost.

Killer Joe (William Friedkin in Person)
Harvard Film Archive
Sat., Sep. 27, 2014, 7 – 8:45 p.m.



William Friedkin's latest film is among his most audacious works, a startling and often hilarious Southern Gothic crime thriller based on an acclaimed play by Tracy Letts, who also wrote the film's screenplay. With its sudden shifts from hillbilly black comedy to savage violence Killer Joe is a wickedly cutting film whose jagged satiric edge and kinetic stylization reveal the octogenarian Friedkin to be one of those rarest of directors whose talent and vision remain undiminished, if not intensified, across the course of a long and storied career.
