Sea Turtle Cold Stun Lectures - Quogue Wildlife Refuge
November 15, 2012 - East Quogue

"Cold-stunning” is a process that causes sea turtles to become immobile due to the dramatic decrease in water temperature (usually below 50°F) making it impossible for them to escape the cold water and migrate to warmer water. Once these turtles wash up on our beaches, it is a race for time. A cold-stunned sea turtle may appear to be dead, but may actually be alive. Without proper intervention a cold stunned sea turtle will inevitably die. Please join the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation for a Cold Stunned Sea Turtle Lecture and learn how you can help rescue sea turtles. Last season the Riverhead Foundation recovered 11 cold stunned sea turtles thanks to the public and our volunteer beach patrollers. If you would like to attend a training lecture and learn how to help rescue sea turtles by patrolling your local beach, please register for one of our free lectures. You can register by calling our office at 631.369.9840 or email Additional dates and information can be found at

These tales were later collected and written down by unknown authors in the 13th and 14th centuries and are ranked with the world's finest literature. Join art educators from Pratt Institute in a unique series of Saturday afternoon workshops inspired by the landscape and medieval tales of Iceland. Children will "visit" Iceland through stories, watercolors, and photographs from the Saga-Sites exhibition and make a visual record of their journey in drawings, paintings, and sculptures.

'Cabaret Émigré,' a new play by Sophia Romma - The Lion Theater
Through November 18, 2012 - New York City

An emigrant feels like a circus man who is traveling the endless doroga (Russian for "the road.") The sins of your past don't matter and your future is in limbo. It's a human condition that is painted poetically in "Cabaret Émigré," a new play by Sophia Romma, directed by Charles Weldon, to be presented by the Negro Ensemble Company from November 2 to 18, 2012 at the Lion Theater, Theater Row. The play contains ten Lewis Carroll-style testimonials that are told as cabaret acts by a collection of émigrés who are primarily Russian Jews (like the author), but also include émigrés from Latin America and Africa. All of them have no other motive than to entertain each other and their resulting acts are outrageous and macabre, like a journey down the rabbit hole. November 2 to 18, 2012 The Lion Theater, 410 West 42nd Street Presented by The Negro Ensemble Company Wednesdays at 7:30 PM, Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays at 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM, Sundays at 3:00 PM.

It was hailed as “90 minutes of pure joy” by The Daily News and named Best Jazz Moment of 2011 by The Wall Street Journal.

As in the original revues, Cotton Club Parade will feature singers, dancers and variety acts, with songs by the greatest jazz composers of the time, including Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields (“I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” and “Digga Digga Doo”), a young Harold Arlen (“Stormy Weather,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,”), and of course, Duke Ellington (“Rockin’ in Rhythm,” “Cotton Club Stomp,” “Black and Tan Fantasy,” and “Creole Love Call”). Duke Ellington influenced millions of people around the world and at home. During the course of his 50-year career, he composed more than 3,000 songs and played more than 20,000 performances in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia. He gave American music its own sound for the first time with popular hits such as “It Don't Mean a Thing if It Ain't Got That Swing,” “Sophisticated Lady,” “Mood Indigo,” “Solitude,” “In a Mellotone,” and “Satin Doll.” Ellington was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1966 and later earned several other prizes, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1969 and the Legion of Honor by France in 1973. The Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars, under the direction of Daryl Waters, is composed of 15 of the finest jazz soloists and ensemble players, who have performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center and with the country’s top jazz orchestras. Jared Grimes is revolutionizing tap and hip-hop/street jazz. He has danced alongside and for legends such as Gregory Hines, Jerry Lewis, Mariah Carey, and Wynton Marsalis. Jared’s stage credits include Babes in Arms at the Goodspeed Opera House; Twist directed by Debbie Allen; The Scottsboro Boys (workshop), directed by Susan Stroman; and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes directed by John Rando.

Today, City Center is home to many distinguished companies, including City Center’s Principal Dance Company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater; American Ballet Theatre, New York City Opera, and Manhattan Theatre Club; a roster of renowned national and international visiting artists; and its own critically acclaimed and popular programs.

Sculpting the Void “My work captures a moment when ascent and descent are in equilibrium; when rising and falling, birth and death and other phenomena born of the organic human form and expressed via a natural opposition meet rigid geometric structure.” –Arcady Kotler Arcady Kotler's art investigates the relationship between the natural and the man-made with illusive, suggestive symbolism. The result is a new order that addresses our sense of place, while our very being is deconstructed, reoriented and replaced with a powerful blend of narratives that are both divergent and complementary.
