Kim Habibi Prepares To Teach The Community Spanish With Easy Course

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 19, 2018 / — Kim Habibi believes every American should have the opportunity to learn the Spanish language. It has become America's second most spoken language. Also, the nation's widely taught, non-English language.

"Once dismissed by many native English speakers, the relevance of the Spanish language can no longer become ignored," says Kim Habibi.

For this reason, Habibi is hoping to plan a Spanish learning class in the community shortly. There are many benefits to learning the Spanish language, and Habibi mentions several.

Become Marketable For More Jobs
Learning the Spanish language means for more opportunity in the job market. With the grammar growing in America, many companies look at someone who knows the Spanish language as an essential quality.

When faced with the decision of two equally qualified candidates for a job, employers in all fields are more likely to pick someone who can speak another language. This option holds right for someone who can speak Spanish.

Thanks to global trade agreements and the evolving economy, the growth of the Spanish language has had a substantial increase in business. Therefore, the prestige grows for an individual that knows Spanish.

"Adding the Spanish language to a resume makes that person's stick out to employers," says Kim Habibi.

Learning Spanish Is Easy

Spanish has become classified as one of the most comfortable languages for native English speakers to learn. This reasoning is because of how close in proximity it is to the English language in grammar and culture.

"If an individual lives in New York, Florida, or in the southwest portion of the United States, chances are they live near a Spanish speaking population," adds Habibi. "Because it is easy to learn the language, you become more socially accessible to those populations."

Both English and Spanish share roots in Latin. Studying Spanish increases the person's understanding of the English language even more.

Broaden Cultural Horizons

Learning Spanish can give the person access to Spanish music, television, and films. Knowing Spanish will help understand and appreciate other cultures within the Spanish umbrella.

"The abundance of Spanish place names extends far and wide," says Habibi. "Even states in America have Spanish roots, including Florida, Nevada, and Montana."

Florida means flowery. Nevada means snowy. And Montana means mountain. Also, the language is an integral part of North America's past and present.

Starting Conversations With Spanish Neighbors

A person's Spanish does not need to be perfect or even fluent in conversing with Spanish speakers. If a person can convey and understand basic ideas within the Spanish language, they can interact on a fundamental level.

"Attempting words or gestures in the Spanish language could generate goodwill and mutual inclusion," says Habibi. "Also, a person could find themselves in a situation to help someone who only speaks Spanish. It opens many doors for social interactions."

With roughly over 50 million Spanish speakers in the United States, almost every person runs into someone who articulates the language on a daily basis.

Other studies report that the United States could even pass Mexico by 2050 as the leading Spanish-speaking country in the world.

"Because of the growing population of Spanish speakers, learning the language has become more important," concludes Kim Habibi. "Also, it's important to pass down the language to the next generation since it's predicted the language continues to grow."

For those who sign up for Habibi's Spanish class, they will learn the basics and work their way up to advanced learning. Habibi will work with each individual on a one-on-one basis so they do not fall behind.

"It's important for every member of the class to learn and take the language home with them to teach others," says Habibi. "I'm looking forward to teaching the class."

The Woodshed saga: One company's 50-year journey from mom and pop picture framing shop to online fine art auction force

Bruce Wood calls an auction from the podium during a live video/audio webcast.

The heavy hitter in Bruce Wood’s modern-day, high-tech arsenal is a near infra-red spectrometer.

Bruce Wood examines a painting through a surgeon’s binocular microscope, to help determine an artwork’s age and authenticity.

James Wood – Bruce’s father – launched The Woodshed Gallery, a picture framing business, out of his garage in 1968.

Angelina Wood – Bruce’s mother – used space in The Woodshed gallery to paint watercolors and conduct watercolor classes.

James and Angelina Wood opened The Woodshed Gallery picture framing studio in the sleepy town of Franklin, Mass., five decades ago. Much has changed since then.

I was about to suggest a reputable auction house or two in the area when it occurred to me, ‘Wait a minute. I bet I can auction these paintings as well as anyone else.’””

— Bruce Wood

FRANKLIN, MASS., UNITED STATES, February 19, 2018 / — FRANKLIN, Mass. – When James and Angelina Wood opened The Woodshed Gallery in the sleepy suburban town of Franklin, Mass., five decades ago, they couldn’t have foreseen the many changes in basic American life that would ultimately transform their little picture framing studio and makeshift art gallery in a four-car garage into the internet-based fine art business it is today.

The year was 1968 – a year that saw plenty of seismic shifts across America and the world. The Vietnam War, the civil rights and women’s liberation movements, the Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King assassinations – all of these were lead stories in a year of change and tumult. One thing that didn’t change much at all though was technology. We were still in the analog age.

James Wood tended to the picture framing side of the business, while Angelina used space to paint watercolors – mostly local scenes, such as cow farms and churches. She held classes there, too, teaching others the fine art of watercolor painting. Their two daughters, Mary-Ann and Lois, were involved in the business for decades, starting in high school. Son Bruce pitched in as well.

And that’s how it was for The Woodshed Gallery in the years leading up to the new millennium. Pictures were framed, art was produced and other local artists dropped by to say hello and maybe consign a painting or two, in the hopes of making a sale. Then, in the early 2000s, the big box stores (think Hobby Lobby and Michael’s) popped up, siphoning off picture framing revenues.

The family soldiered on, with the parents and two daughters keeping the business afloat in the face of lower-priced competition. Bruce’s interests were more in fine art than in picture framing, and he went on to earn a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He became an artist, art conservator and experimental filmmaker.

Bruce’s successes spanned the decades, beginning with solo exhibitions in the 1970s at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and the Museum of Modern Art (Beaubourg) in Paris. More recently, his early work received retrospective exhibitions in Chicago and Madrid, and has been included in programs of mid-century abstract experimental films in New York and London.

He opened art galleries in Chicago and Michigan, buying and selling fine art and cementing his burgeoning reputation as an expert conservator of oil paintings. Meanwhile, back in Franklin, the early 2000s saw changes for The Woodshed Gallery. Angelina died in 2003 and James’s health began to decline. Lois moved to Florida around 2004 to start her own picture framing business.

Bruce lent his time and expertise to help with the family business as best as he could, but he still had two galleries and a conservation business to run halfway across the country. Then, the financial crisis of 2008-2009 hit, and it was so devastating Bruce had to close both galleries. His conservation work sustained him during those tough times, then his father passed away in 2013.

At that point, Mary-Ann was running The Woodshed Gallery, with some long-distance help from Bruce, but she needed full-time support so Bruce relocated his art restoration business from Chicago to Franklin, then purchased the property from his parents’ estate and became the sole owner of The Woodshed Gallery. Mary-Ann left to pursue her passion, costume jewelry design.

It turned out timing couldn’t have been better for Bruce. “New England is full of old paintings in need of restoration, so I was busy right from the start,” he said. “Then, I became an underwriter for the Providence (R.I.) affiliate of the PBS series Antiques Roadshow. That was like a magnet, attracting even more business. PBS has a loyal, educated base, and that worked in my favor.”

It didn’t hurt, either, that the state and local economies had come roaring back in the 1980s, a phenomenon nicknamed the Massachusetts Miracle, which allowed for additions to be put onto the garage, effectively tripling it in size. A new road was built that made driving from Franklin to Boston a breeze, too, bringing more business. And the NFL stadium in nearby Foxboro, where the New England Patriots play, is near to Franklin. That increased awareness of the town.

In 2014, a conversation with a man who had paintings to sell would change Bruce’s life forever. “The more we talked the more we agreed that auctioning the artwork was probably the best way to go, and I was about to suggest a reputable auction house or two in the area when it occurred to me, ‘Wait a minute. I bet I can auction these paintings as well as anyone else.’” The man agreed.

Bruce began to make plans for his first public auction, in the very birthplace of The Woodshed Gallery – the four-car garage in Franklin, which had become his art restoration and conservation studio. But another conversation derailed that plan and launched Bruce Wood into the digital age. The conversation was with Mr. Dylan Ferrara, an auctioneer who’s licensed to give classes.

“He told me not to conduct a live auction,” Wood recalled. “I just stared at him. ‘Why not?’ His answer: ‘You don’t want to be committed to methods that are outdated. For you to hold a live art auction, even a small one in your garage, you’ll need 12 to 20 people. You’ll have all kinds of headaches, both personally and logistically.’ Ferrara’s prescription was an internet-only auction.

Bruce Wood took that advice and never looked back. The sale was a success, buyers and sellers were pleased with the outcome, and a new business was soon created with a name all its own: Woodshed Art Auctions. In just over three years, the firm has carved a niche in the crowded and competitive fine art auction marketplace. That wouldn’t have been possible without the internet.

Today, Woodshed Art Auctions conducts sales throughout the year. In April 2017, it held its first Prestige Signature Collection: Master Artworks auction, the confluence of a group of excellent pieces arriving at once in the gallery and limited to artworks by internationally recognized artists. It was a debut auction, featuring just 26 works. The top lot was a Van Gogh drawing ($12,000).

Many artworks in Woodshed sales are attributions – paintings and drawings done “in the manner of” an artist, but lacking the paperwork and provenance to officially declare them authentic. It’s a challenge, determining what art is genuine and what isn’t, but Wood is up to the task, having decades of experience in restoration and conservation and an arsenal of modern-day technology.

The most sophisticated is the near infra-red spectrometer, used to identify the components of paints, inks, canvas and paper. “The spectrometer is a very specialized tool that has already identified some works as non-authentic, and others as possibly the real deal,” Wood said. “We’re examining some Van Gogh drawings with it now and the materials date from the right period.”

Other tech-tools include ultraviolet spectrum lighting and UV camera, which shows retouching, restoration, and old and new varnishes; and infra-red lighting and IR camera, which show some of what may be under the paint, not visible to the naked eye (in some instances it has revealed under-drawings, changes to the composition and entire paintings hidden beneath the surface).

Also put to good use are a surgeon’s binocular microscope, which aids in examining paint and varnish layers; and a variety of conservation tools and chemicals that are sometimes used to determine the age of paints. “Oh, and our brains come in handy, too, from time to time,” Wood said, giving a nod to good old-fashioned eyeballing, gut feeling and a little Yankee intuition.

Wood has a dedicated staff of two. The first is his partner, William Janosco, an artist and art historian, with a background in 19th and 20th century American art and two degrees in fine art. The men co-owned and operated the Fenway Galleries in Chicago and Michigan before Bruce relocated back to Massachusetts. There, Janosco helped him launch Woodshed Art Auctions.

Both men have strong museum backgrounds. Janosco was Director of the Library at the highly regarded Terra Museum of American Art in Chicago, and for years he was a photo researcher at the Ryerson Library of the Art Institute of Chicago. Bruce, as a conservator of oil paintings, is a member of the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works in London.

The other person on the team is Mary Jameson, an art appraiser certified through the Rhode Island School of Design and The American Society of Appraisers. She’s also an accomplished visual artist and the co-owner of Saltwater Studio, an art and design studio in Newport, R.I., where she exhibits her artworks. Bruce has also enlisted the help and expertise of Dr. Lori Verderame, the fine art appraiser and TV personality.

In the few short years it’s been operational, Woodshed Art Auctions has held numerous online-only auctions, featuring some of the most famous names in the history of fine art, such as Van Gogh, Matisse, Monet, Renoir, Chagall, Warhol, Lichtenstein and many others. The biggest problem before wasn’t attracting consignments, it was spreading the word to potential bidders.

Now, thanks to aggressive marketing, advertising and public relations, that dilemma has flipped. Bruce has plenty of buyers; now he needs a stronger and steadier stream of artworks, to fill a seemingly insatiable desire for original and attributable artwork at attractive price points. There’s little doubt that will happen. Success does beget success. James and Angelina would be proud.

Woodshed Art Auctions is a family-owned art gallery specializing in oil painting restoration and live and online art auctions, celebrating its 50th anniversary. The firm is always accepting quality artworks for future auctions. To inquire about consigning a single piece or an entire collection, you may call Bruce Wood at 508-533-6277; or, e-mail him at

Midwinter Fest in New York City – Sunday, February 25 @ 3 PM

NorSou Artists Feb 25

The North/South Chamber Orchestra celebrates winter with a free admission concert featuring music by Josh Henderson, Ching-Chu Hu, Max Lifchitz & David Maves

Max Lifchitz led his North/South players at Christ and St. Stephen's Church in a program of four imaginative recent works. Each piece had something to draw the listener in.”

— New York Times

NEW YORK, NY, USA, February 19, 2018 / — The North/South Chamber Orchestra celebrates winter on Sunday afternoon February 25 performing a free-admission concert featuring four listener-friendly works by American composers.

Soprano Elizabeth Farnum will appear as soloist while Max Lifchitz – the ensemble's founder – will be on the podium.

The program will feature recent compositions by Josh Henderson, Ching-Chu Hu, Max Lifchitz and David Maves.

The event is part of the Composers Now Festival. It will take place at the intimate and acoustically superior auditorium of Christ & St Stephen's Church (120 West 69th Street) on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The free-admission event will start at 3 PM and end around 4:30 PM. The auditorium is ADA accessible. No tickets or reservations needed.

The composers will be in attendance and will introduce their works to the audience. Composers and performers are available for interviews and media events. They may be contacted through our office.

Since its inception in 1980, the North/South Consonance, Inc. has brought to the attention of the New York City public over 1,000 works by composers hailing from the Americas and elsewhere representing a wide spectrum of aesthetic views.

In addition to presenting a yearly concert series in New York City the North/South Chamber Orchestra maintains an active recording schedule. Its activities are made possible in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; Women's Philharmonic Advocacy; the Music Performance Trust Fund; and the generosity of numerous individual donors.


Josh Henderson is a multi-faceted artist active as cross-genre violinist, and composer. A graduate of the Cincinnati Conservatory he has composed music for various chamber ensembles as well as for dance and film. He has also served as music director for Damien Escobar (the Emmy winner of Nuttin' But Stringz) and has performed at a number of events across the globe including a performance at the 2013 Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball hosted by Russell Simmons and honoring Barack Obama.

Henderson states that his Dragon Dance is a "showpiece for string orchestra that incorporates funky jams providing the performers with ample opportunity to showcase their virtuosity."

An Iowa City native, Chung-Chu Hu studied at Yale and the University of Michigan and now teaches at Denison University. The press has described his music as "breathtaking, richly textured with incredible tender luminous harmonies." He has written music for several short award-winning films including a soundtrack to Charlie Chaplin's 1925 version of The Gold Rush for symphony orchestra.

Hu explains that "as an Asian-American composer, music of both my cultures are present in Spheres of Influence. The work begins with an anticipatory fanfare growing organically out of a single pitch. The middle section features longing melodies on various instruments representing the eventual parting between a parent and a child. The third section is relaxed, showing the need to "let go" and trust the impact of our influence."

A dynamic figure in America's musical life, Max Lifchitz was born in Mexico City and has lived in New York since 1966. Active as composer, pianist and conductor, he was awarded first prize in the 1976 International Gaudeamus Competition for Performers of Twentieth Century Music held in Holland. The San Francisco Chronicle described him as "a stunning, ultra-sensitive pianist" while The New York Times praised Mr. Lifchitz for his "clean, measured and sensitive performances." The American Record Guide referred to him as "…one of America's finest exponents of contemporary piano music."

Lifchitz's Brightness Aloft is based on the lilting melody Xicochi Conetzintle — the theme of a 17th century motet written by Gaspar Fernandez in Mexico. A beautiful villancico (or Christmas Carol), the text of the motet is in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs. A lullaby, its title can be translated as "Sleep, O my Child" obviously referring to baby Jesus.

David Maves served as Composer-in-Residence for the College of Charleston in South Carolina, for over 30 years. His catalogue includes symphonies, concertos and an opera based on Federico GarcÍa Lorca's Bodas de Sangre (Blood Weddings).

His song cycle The Captive was inspired by John Donne's poem Lovers' Infiniteness. Maves states that the work is envisioned as "….the poet's lover reading the poem aloud with wonder; in awe, deeply moved, and yet perhaps a bit frustrated as conditions pile up as the poet attempts to construct an imaginary but air-tight intellectual edifice within which the lovers are inextricably bound to each other — forever."

Soprano Elizabeth Farnum will appear as soloist for this work. She has been praised for her "lovely soaring soprano, great agility and beautiful tone." She has performed at Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, London's Institute for Contemporary Art, the American Academy at Rome and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Her various interests have led her to performances on Broadway, at the Metropolitan Opera, and to five continents on tour with diverse ensembles, including early music groups Pomerium and the Waverly Consort.

– 42% of global consumers favor smaller and locally produced brands over bigger, mass market brands.
– 26% of global consumers believe that globalization has had a negative impact on their country.
– 70% of global consumers associate local or locally produced products with "fresher".

Key points

– Understand which audiences are most affected by the Localism trend.
– Compare the presence of this trend in each industry across the FMCG space, and learn what the key opportunities are.

Engaging Family Members in Care of Hospitalized Loved Ones Enhances Healing, Reduces Readmission Rates, Study Finds

Intermountain’s Partners in Healing program provides opportunities for family members to help with basic care for their loved ones, which helps them prepare for taking over care responsibilities when the patient goes home.

The vast majority of families like to have something to do and they like to participate in patient care.”

— Michelle Van De Graaff, RN, Intermountain Medical Center

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, USA , February 19, 2018 / — A voluntary program being spearheaded by Intermountain Healthcare that allows family members of hospitalized patients to participate in their care enhanced healing and reduced readmission rates, according to a new study published in the February issue of the medical journal, CHEST.

Intermountain's Partners in Healing program provides opportunities for family members to help with basic care for their loved ones, which helps them prepare for taking over care responsibilities when the patient goes home.

The program also allows the patient and family member more control over when they perform the care activities rather than following a schedule when the nurse or patient care tech are available. And it improves communication between the family and the staff, says Michelle Van De Graaff, RN, of Intermountain Medical Center, who created and piloted the program as part of the study.

"The vast majority of families like to have something to do and they like to participate in patient care. They're often the most motivated member of the care team," says Van De Graaff. "We've found that families not only want to promote healing, but patients benefit from someone who knows their preferences, and the result is, the rate of readmissions is reduced after patients are discharged from the hospital."

Partners in Healing is the first program in the field that shows drafting families as clinical care partners during hospitalization may reduce readmissions. In the study, researchers compared adult heart surgery patients at Intermountain Medical Center whose families participated in the program with those whose relatives did not.

Intermountain researchers looked at 30-day all-cause readmissions, 30-day all-cause mortality, length of stay, and the number of emergency room visits. Many family members who participated also completed a feedback survey.

The 30-day readmission rate was 65 percent lower for patients whose families participated in Partners in Healing, based on 200 matched pairs of patients. Researchers controlled the results for age, gender, and illness severity. There was no significant difference for the other outcomes.

Participant feedback showed that 92 percent of the patients said the program enhanced the transition from hospital care to home care and 94 percent said they'd highly recommend the program to other families.

Four themes were identified in a feedback survey:
• Family members praised the Partners in Healing program and expressed gratitude for being involved with it.
• Family members acquired relevant caregiving skills.
• Family members reported feeling empowered, integrated into the care team, and confident. They said those feelings reduced their anxiety, increased their confidence in caregiving tasks at home, and aided in the patient's healing process.

Family members thought the program should be available to all families and during all phases of hospitalization, including in intensive care units.

Intermountain Medical Center piloted the nine-year program in seven acute-care units, Van De Graaff says. The Mayo Clinic learned about the program and also tested it last year. 

The program will now expand to the other 21 Intermountain Healthcare hospitals and will eventually be available on all Intermountain nursing units.

"Offering the Partners in Healing program to the patients and families in all of our Intermountain hospitals is a commitment to providing the best care possible to our patients by involving their loved ones in the healing process," says Tammy Richards, assistant vice president of Patient and Clinical Engagement at Intermountain Healthcare.

The program works like this: During a patient's initial encounter in the hospital, the bedside nurse introduces the program and families are asked if they want to participate.

Those who are interested are taught several basic skills that are appropriate for that patient, then given a badge that indicates to staff that they're part of the care team and have access to drinks, snacks, ice, and blankets for their family member.

A checklist is taped to the patient's door and program participants write what they do, such as helping with breathing exercises, assisting with activity, giving help to the bathroom, measuring urine output, recording how much a patient eats and drinks, etc. The nurse then transfers the data into the computer record.

"These are simple tasks, but they give families a sense of control and knowledge about what they can and can't do," says Van De Graaff. "By inviting them onto the healthcare team, we're also preparing them to take over care when a patient goes home."

The various tasks a family member can perform are determined by the patient's needs and the capacity of the family member, she says. "For example, families of heart failure patients learn to measure intake and output, while families of post-surgery patients are taught to focus on breathing exercises and activity."

"The program also boosts confidence and teamwork," she says. "It lets family members practice patient care with expert guidance before the patient goes home."

Once they were home, they couldn't agree on how to remove the patient's knee brace — and he didn't shower for a couple of days until a home health nurse could demonstrate how to remove it. "If they'd practiced in the hospital, they could've reduced their stress and their family member could have had an earlier shower," Van De Graaff says. "And while families are in the hospital, sometimes they prefer to get things for themselves, rather than waiting for someone to answer the call light."

Other Intermountain caregivers involved in the study included Sarah Beesley, MD, Jorie Butler, PhD, Jose Benuzillo, MA, MS, Justin Pool, PhD, Thomas Oniki, PhD, Morgan Francis, BS, Dale Cable, RN, MSN, Ramona Hopkins, PhD, Donald Lappé, MD, and Samuel Brown, MD.

Dr. Caryl Guth to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

BERMUDA RUN, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, February 19, 2018 / — Opioid addcition is now in the news and referred to as a crisis. Millions of physicians world-wide have prescribed medications, often opioids, to patients that suffer from chronic pain. Facing today’s crisis, patients and doctors are looking for other options to treat chronic pain, which interests Dr. Caryl Guth.

Dr. Guth is a highly esteemed anesthesiologist who practiced thirty plus years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Soon after retiring she began the process to develop what became known in 2009 as the Center for Integrative Medicine Center in Winston-Salem, NC. This was a big step to introduce non-traditional medical concepts into a leading medical institution.

“In 2017, we opened our Integrative Medicine Clinic to treat referred patients who seek options that their primary care physician can’t offer,” says Dr. Guth. “ For example, we can treat and manage pain holistically incorporating acupuncture and other techniques that will enhance the body’s own energy and healing process.”

“Energy has a powerful role in the healing process and is beneficial for the whole body,” says Dr. Guth. “Energy therapy provides another option to treat chronic pain that Western medicine cannot always accomplish.”

Having sustained a serious neck injury from a high-speed water skiing accident soon after she began practice, Dr. Guth inadvertently learned 25 years later about the healing power of energy therapy. When she desperately sought help from her colleagues she was told she would have to learn to live with chronic pain. Since nothing in traditional medicine helped alleviate her condition, she spent the next two decades suffering till by chance her brother suggested she try non-traditional therapy, which provided immense relief at long last.

“It hasn’t cured the problem completely but helped me heal tremendously by keeping my pain under control.” explains Dr. Guth. “It’s highly critical we help patients deal with chronic problems that will never be solved with just drugs. Unfortunately, most doctors have very little, if any, knowledge about integrative medicine as it yet has not been taught routinely in medical schools.”

“Likewise most patients still haven’t heard of Integrative medicine, yet more and more patients today are wanting to control their health without drugs. They are beginning to realize that there may be other factors that should be recruited into their healing process.”

An example would be a person who discovered their moderately high blood pressure could be controlled without drugs by modifying their lifestyle (exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress) and adding a magnesium mineral supplement. Patients must be willing and want to learn how to modify their health habits and habitats. They also should know the answers to the following questions: What is the best form of therapy that you can give yourself? How important are your genetics in the determination of your health?

“My ultimate goal is for people enduring chronic pain and other chronic conditions to discover how to address them successfully as I did without drugs,” says Dr. Guth

CUTV news will feature Dr. Caryl Guth in an interview with Jim Masters on February 20th at 1 pm.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.
