Introduction to the Multicam Industrial CNC Router: OCTOBER

Description:

Want to build big? Learn to use the industrial Multicam CNC router! Able to cut 2- and 3-dimensional shapes from full-size, inches-thick sheets of wood, plastics, and aluminum, this machine is the largest computer-controlled cutter currently in our shops. In this month-long intensive training, learn everything you need to know to operate the machine safely and independently.

The class will cover topics including:

  • processing HSMWorks files through the controller, 
  • setting appropriate spindle speeds
  • modifying tool paths
  • allowable materials and thicknesses
  • loading material onto the table
  • identifying failure modes and trouble-shooting

Class Goals:

The successful student will be able to take an existing file and run it through the machine independently without hurting themselves, others, or the machine. Additional run time may be necessary in order for students to feel comfortable addressing various failure modes of the machine without consulting the instructor.

Prerequisites:

Should have completed the HSMWorks for CNC Machining class here at Artisan's Asylum or have equivalent experience with HSMWorks.

Materials Provided:

Registration covers the cost of basic training materials and tool maintenance. Students have the option of working on an independent project, in which case they will be responsible for obtaining the necessary additional materials.

What to Bring:

Students should have a means for taking notes in class. Students should wear closed-toe shoes and avoid dangling jewelry, clothing, or hair. Students have the option of bringing their own file for cutting.

Instructor Biography:

He has done such things as DAQ and control coding, stained glass, motorcycle and Landrover mechanic, Bio-Tech instrumentation design, 1-MeV neutron radiation damage studies, photography all over the planet and kinetic sculptures such as his Galaxy and Let's Go Fly a Bike for the Burning Man Festival, among other things.

Come partake in lively, stimulating discussion with fellow homeschooling parents in a relaxed, friendly environment. The topic will be “Rethinking Socialization.”

One of the first questions homeschooling families are asked is, “But what about socialization?” In this discussion we will examine our beliefs about what it means for children to be “socialized.” We will also brainstorm ideas for supporting homeschoolers as they forge meaningful connections with others and participate in groups and communities in a variety of social contexts.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, October 16 at 7:00 PM at Panera Bread, 433 Paradise Rd., Swampscott, MA. If you want, you can purchase soups, salads, sandwiches, baked goods, and hot and cold drinks at Panera. Please do not bring outside food in.

The discussion will be geared toward adults, so we ask that you leave at home children who will be as happy or happier there with a loving caregiver. Interested teens are welcome to attend.

Cost is $15/person (teen and adult) to reserve your spot; the full price will be refunded to you, making your participation FREE. If you don't show up, your money will be donated to support the non-profit mission of AHEM.

WINE 101: Wine Tasting For The Complete Novice (4 Thursdays)

Wine should be fun and easy, but a lot of people are so overwhelmed and intimidated they'd almost rather order a beer. This course is designed to help the beginning wine lover get more comfortable and confident with wine in a low-pressure, snob-free environment.

We talk a lot about how to understand and remember what wines you like and how to communicate that to people in a wine shop or a restaurant. We always take a fun and light-hearted approach to how we taste wine so people don't feel like they have to be experts just to have a valid opinion.

In just four classes, you'll have a short list of favorite whites and favorite reds that you can rely on when you're shopping, ordering, and exploring new wines.

 WEEK ONE - How to taste wine, and why!  What's with all the swishing, swirling, and spewing?

WEEK TWO - Understanding wine grapes - sometimes but only sometimes, knowing the grape (or grapes) gives you a hint about what the wine's like.

WEEK THREE - Wines around the world - we'll taste the same wine from different parts of the world plus a few grapes that only grow one place... so far!

WEEK FOUR - Final blind wine taste off - we'll do a fun and interesting blind tasting in our last class to fire you up with wine confidence!

Here is a list of some of the delicious wines we've tasted in previous sessions of this class:

  • St. Supery Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley, California)
  • Sabeka Chardonnay (Western Cape, South Africa)
  • Domaine Montanet-Thoden Bourgogne (Burgundy, France)
  • Axel "Primero" (Chile)
  • Jaboulet Isnard Cotes du Ventoux (Rhone Valley, Southern France)
  • Ruffino Chianti (Tuscany, Italy)
  • Truro Vignoles (Cape Cod, Massachusetts)

What Does It Take to Lead ?

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Boston Professional Section presents:

What does it take to lead  in a V.U.C.A World? *

Lessons from Manager-Leaders Who Do It

 * Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous

 

Sponsored by National Grid

Presented by Nance Goldstein, PhD, ACC

RSVP By September 16, 2014

 Event overview

  • Do you wonder how anyone can be a successful manager when there is so much change?
  • Have you wondered about if you have what it takes to move up in management, but you’ve never seen a great manager, so you got no model? 

If you answer yes to either question, join SWE Boston’s conversation with managers who will reveal what the V.U.C.A. world demands of managers.

 Frontline and middle managers are the go-to people for implementing change. Most managers fail even in calm times. Two-thirds of all US employees would rather get another boss than get a pay raise! Add to the “normal” manager job the challenges of motivating people through today’s uncharted territory. 

Join a seasoned engineering manager and a leadership expert talking candidly about how to engage staff through change. They’ll talk about how to motivate people across boundaries (like they don’t work for you!). We’ll discuss how to deal with resistance to change from people who fear what they’ll lose or what it will cost. They’ll tell what prepared them to face the challenges of innovation. And what they wish they had known before!

  You’ll leave the conversation with ideas of how to become a great manager-leader.

  •  You’ll have ideas how to improve your relationship with your own manager. 
  • After a leadership development activity, you’ll have specific steps you can take the next day to develop your own manager-leader capability.

Josh Abbott Band - Casey Donahew Band
This event is 18 and over
Josh Abbott Band


Weeks before its Valentine's Day release on iTunes, the Josh Abbott Band's "Touch" was already well on its way toward being one of the most talked-about songs in Texas music of 2012. Granted, the hot-streak momentum of Abbott's career had a lot to do with that. In the wake of the breakout success of "Oh, Tonight" (which climbed to No. 44 on Billboard's country chart) and the title track from 2010's regional smash "She's Like Texas," created a stir that reached all the way to music executives in Nashville and New York City. That set up pretty much any track that the 31-year-old singer-songwriter picked to be the lead single from his band's much-anticipated third album nicely, ensuring it was bound to garner a fair amount of attention. But from the very first time it was played in concert or over the airwaves, it was clear that "Touch" had a lot more going for it than just good timing. From the erotic tension and release of its slow-burning verses and soaring chorus to the dramatic crescendo of fiddle and guitars at the outro, it's a song that captures every ounce of the passion, talent, and vision that's propelled the Josh Abbott Band to the forefront of the Texas music scene in record time. And as the rest of Small Town Family Dream proves convincingly, they're here to stay.
Casey Donahew Band


When the Casey Donahew Band's latest release, Movin' On, debuted at #28 on the Billboard top country albums chart, landing well within the all-genre Top 200 and selling over 14,000 copies in just five months, no one was more astonished than Casey Donahew himself. Not Red Dirt radio, where the band has twice topped the Texas Music chart. Nor the critics; Texas Music Magazine described Movin' On as "a vibrant collection matching eternally restless anthems against engaging narratives, [it] rattles and rolls and rumbles like a youthful Robert Earl Keen fronting Reckless Kelly." And certainly not the raging legion of fans who loyally support the Casey Donahew Band at over 200 shows a year. Fans who know every word to every song, and fill to capacity renowned rooms from The Grizzly Rose in Denver to Stillwater, Oklahoma's Tumbleweeds. Who've thronged sell-out performances at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth and the 12,000-seat Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. Playing to nearly 11,000 people at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, "With songs about love and heartbreak the crowd could relate to delivered by an easy-going guy and a tight six-piece band, Donahew connected," said the San Antonio Express-News. Yet for all the accolades and achievements, this everyman persona and a remarkable ability to connect with fans are what really make Casey Donahew a bona fide rock star on the Texas music scene-and that is something he can understand. "I think we're just believable," Casey explains. "We're not trying to be somebody we're not. We're just normal guys, you can tell. And people see that and respond to it."

A normal guy, indeed. Casey grew up just south of Forth Worth in Burleson, Texas, where he was active in rodeo as well as his father's greyhound dog racing career. Music, including 80's and 90's country and healthy doses of Elvis-his mother's favorite-was always a part of Casey's life, though it wasn't until he learned to drive that he truly discovered his passion for it. "You're really not in charge of the radio dial until you've got your own car," he quips, recalling his first musical infatuation with Matchbox 20, who he names a major influence on his songwriting and whose hit, "3 A.M.," he still covers today. With the entrance of Pat Green onto the Texas music stage, Casey was ushered into the Red Dirt world of Cross Canadian Ragweed, Robert Earl Keen, and Randy Rogers, bands he would follow from show to show to show with his then-girlfriend Melinda, now his wife and manager.

"By the time we met, Casey already had a box full of songs," Melinda says, which he'd written over the past several years. Casey began writing in high school, explaining, "Once you get your heart broken for the first time, you've got a lot to say, I guess." He still has a lot to say, having written all but two songs on the band's four albums-turning heartbreak on its head with his relentlessly upbeat, energetic tunes, which they rock out without restraint for 90 minutes at a stretch. "It's about getting past the pain, and moving on," he'll tell you. Backed by ace players J.J. Soto (lead guitar), TAZ (drums), Steve Stone (bass), Josh Moore (fiddle), and A.C. Copeland (keys), with Casey covering acoustic, electric, and vocals, he's come a long way from his dorm room at Texas A&M, where he first began teaching himself to play on the guitar his grandpa gave him. After transferring to UT Arlington (where he went on to graduate with a finance degree), Casey began playing a regular acoustic gig at the now-defunct Thirsty Armadillo in Fort Worth, which led to his first full band set on that stage in the fall of 2002.

With enthusiasm in place of experience, Melinda quickly stepped up as the band's manager. "This thing would have been over before it started if not for her," Casey says. Learning as she went, she made t-shirts and press kits, booking the band at birthday parties and local clubs, and finally, following eight months of refusing to take no for an answer, at Bostock's in Stephenville, where they got the chance to open for Cooder Graw. But it wasn't until they packed 3,500 fans into Billy Bob's in Fort Worth in 2007-without any radio airplay behind them-that they began to grasp how big the Casey Donahew Band had become. "We were doing really well even before we had any industry, radio, or media behind us," Casey says. "That word-of-mouth, underground band feel has really stayed with us." While the Casey Donahew Band has graduated from personally dropping off CDs to mom & pop shops that would sell them on consignment to inking a national distribution deal with Thirty Tigers, and have gone from self-booking to being represented by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, they value their underground roots and have fiercely retained their independence, releasing four albums in five years on their own Almost Country label. "There's no big machine behind us pushing the Casey Donahew Band. We just have us and we're pushing ourselves," Casey says, and that makes their success so much the sweeter.

Jessie Burton at Harvard Book Store
Jessie Burton at Harvard Book Store



Thursday, September 11, 2014 - 7:00pm





Harvard Book Store welcomes novelist JESSIE BURTON for a reading of her debut work, The Miniaturist: A Novel.

Set in seventeenth century Amsterdam—a city ruled by glittering wealth and oppressive religion—The Miniaturist is a masterful debut steeped in atmosphere and shimmering with mystery, in the tradition of Emma Donoghue, Sarah Waters, and Sarah Dunant.

”There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. . .“

On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office—leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin.

But Nella’s world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist—an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways. . .

Johannes’ gift helps Nella to pierce the closed world of the Brandt household. But as she uncovers its unusual secrets, she begins to understand—and fear—the escalating dangers that await them all. In this repressively pious society where gold is worshipped second only to God, to be different is a threat to the moral fabric of society, and not even a man as rich as Johannes is safe. Only one person seems to see the fate that awaits them. Is the miniaturist the key to their salvation. . . or the architect of their destruction?

Enchanting, beautiful, and exquisitely suspenseful, The Miniaturist is a magnificent story of love and obsession, betrayal and retribution, appearance and truth.
