The Marc Black Band Mid-Summer Potluck and Dance.
After almost four months on the road from Texas to Israel and many stops in between, Marc Black will be getting together with his Band at the Colony Cafe to celebrate summer in Woodstock.  There'll be a one hour community potluck at 6 pm and the Band will start at 7 pm.
The Marc Black Band features Amy Fradon on backing vocals, Don Davis on horns, Eric Parker on drums and the great Michael Esposito on bass.
Marc got the idea for this show when he was traveling in Portland, Oregon. There's an excellent local band that plays early evening shows every Sunday.  It's developed into a regular community event that has great spirit.
This will be the Band's only public event this summer. Marc, however, will also perform a few solo shows as well as a duet with Warren Bernhardt at the Maverick Concert Hall on August 31.

Media Literacy: Be an Informed Observer
By Cassandra HastieEverybody knows that you can’t always believe what you hear.

That being said, why do we tend to believe everything that we
see? Training ourselves to become informed observers involves educating ourselves about media literacy and the distorted
images that plague teens in the delicate time of adolescence.
It is imperative that we not only understand the importance of
Media Literacy, but that we take steps to change our culture.
This includes questioning what is presented in Media as the
truth and deconstructing the images to disclose the truth.
It has become evident over the years that advertising to
children is a business. According to Global Issues, the average American child watches approximately 25,000 to 40,000
television commercials per year. What children don’t know, is
that the commercials they are looking at contain models who
have been airbrushed so that no flaws are present. These
images that plague the minds of adolescents and send them
messages that they need to look a certain way do not reflect
reality in any way, shape, or form. Most of the images of
models that are presented in television ads and magazines
portray bodies that are biologically impossible to achieve.
Although it has been proven that the media does not advertise
with models who accurately portray healthy bodies, it still can
be hard to wrap your head around the fact that the images are
not “real”. In order to raise women’s self esteem so that they
can see through the artificial ads, Dove has launched the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty. Through their campaign, Dove
surveyed over 1,000 women and results showed that 40% of the women were made to feel insecure by the models used in
beauty advertisements. Advertising can be damaging to a
person’s self esteem because airbrushing not only fixes
blemishes but shrinks waists and makes legs appear to be
As someone who has been affected by society’s portrayal of
“what is beautiful”, I think it’s really important for teenagers
to be aware of the misleading advertisements that infect
magazine racks and fashion websites. Size is not everything and you don’t have to be flawless to be beautiful. Beauty comes from
within and the faster our society realizes that, the healthier
we will be.*Please remember to send me emails with questions, comments, or article topics Also,

  • from Advisor Samantha Drazin:
I am launching my own health coaching business called Green
Eggs & Sam.
Sam is a certified health coach who focuses her wellness and nutritional practice on women. She counsels her clients based
on their own goals and creates plans based on each client's own, unique bio-indivuduality. Sam believes that one person's food is another's poison. Also, she follows the rule that no two client's
are ever the same, which is why no two diets or wellness plans
should ever be identical. Sam launched Green Eggs & Sam to
help women achieve ultimate wellness, both nutritionally and emotionally. She counsels women of all ages on a variety of
topics ranging from learning how to use food as medicine to
eating well while at college to learning how to nutritionally
support the female body's needs in all phases from puberty to pre/post natal to menopause.
