Club Roundup:

WELCOME | WILLKOMMEN  

Sängerfest 2012 is the 40th Singing and Yodeling Festival, held every three years by the North American Swiss Singing Alliance (NASSA). This year, Sängerfest will take place during the Canada Da

Sängerfest 2012 will be held from June 28 to July 1, 2012 in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, in the heart of southern Ontario's fertile farming region. It's a place where the past and the future live perfectly together: it's the home of one of the world's largest old-order Mennonite populations, and the home of the world-famous Blackberry smartphone!

CHORAL COMPETITION: FRI JUNE 29 AT 1:15 PM

15 choirs from across Canada and the USA will compete for honours in various categories of artistic, folk and yodel music.

Tickets: $17.50 from Centre in the Square: call (519) 578-1570 or book online.

GRAND CONCERT: SAT JUNE 30 AT 7:30 PM

Sounds of Switzerland: An astounding 300 singers from the 15 member choirs will combine their voices for this gala event. The Jodlerclub Alpenrösli from Einsiedeln, Switzerland will also perform!

Tickets: $27.50 (Children 14 & under: $17.50) from Centre in the Square: call (519) 578-1570 or book online.

ABOUT NASSA  

The North American Swiss Singing Alliance (NASSA) is a national Swiss singing organization, currently comprised of fifteen Swiss choral groups from the Upper Midwest and Canada, representing approximately 400 singers in mixed, men’s, women’s and yodel choirs.

Its primary objectives are to bring Swiss singing societies together, and to foster and elevate Swiss national folksongs and yodel songs. This is accomplished every three years through a Swiss singing festival that is hosted by an individual member society. The main features of each festival, besides a good dose of Gemuetlichkeit , are a singing competition amongst the member choirs and a mass concert, which combines the efforts and talents of all the singers for the public.

Formed in the late 1800s with singing societies from the United States, the organization was originally known as the Swiss American Singing Alliance. In 1982 the Montagna Singers based in Ottawa, Ontario and the Jodlerklub Heimattreu Calgary, Alberta joined the American Swiss Singing Alliance as the first choirs from Canada. In 1988, the latter hosted the first festival in Canada and subsequently, the name was changed to the North American Swiss Singing Alliance.

Representatives of each member society form the Executive Board, which manages the day-to-day affairs of NASSA.

At the tenth singing festival held in St. Louis, Missouri in 1917, a Bundes-Banner, or society flag, was endowed to the Swiss American Singing Alliance. Since that time, the Bundes-Banner has been ceremoniously passed at each festival from one host society to the next.

There is a companion organization to NASSA on the west coast called the United Swiss Singing Societies of the Pacific Coast (USSSPC), which was formed in 1934 and also has festivals to promote similar goals and objectives. One main difference in the festivals of these two national organizations is that the USSSPC features an exhibition, rather than a competitive singing event, amongst its member societies.

MISSION OF SÄNGERFEST 2012

Saengerfest 2012 is the name of the 40th Singing and Yodeling Festival that is organized every three years, on behalf of the North American Swiss Singing Alliance (NASSA). NASSA and its member societies in the United States and Canada are dedicated to the preservation of the Swiss cultural traditions and to foster and elevate Swiss Folksongs and Yodel songs.

The Swiss Choir Thames Valley in Monkton, south-western Ontario, was chosen by the delegates to host the 40th edition of NASSA Song Festival in summer 2012. To meet this mandate, the host chose the twin cities of Kitchener-Waterloo as the venue for the three-day event. The competition and Grand Concert will be held at Kitchener's Centre in the Square, a venue that has received wide acclaim for its excellent acoustics. This hall seats about 2000 people.

Please join us for three days of Swiss Music, Songs, Yodeling and festivities in Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario, June 28 to July 1, 2012.

A Sand County Almanac: With Other Essays on Conservation from Round River

Aldo Leopold 

From Amazon

Published in 1949, shortly after the author's death, A Sand County Almanac is a classic of nature writing, widely cited as one of the most influential nature books ever published. Writing from the vantage of his summer shack along the banks of the Wisconsin River, Leopold mixes essay, polemic, and memoir in his book's pages. In one famous episode, he writes of killing a female wolf early in his career as a forest ranger, coming upon his victim just as she was dying, "in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes.... I was young then, and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, no wolves would mean hunters' paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view." Leopold's road-to-Damascus change of view would find its fruit some years later in his so-called land ethic, in which he held that nothing that disturbs the balance of nature is right. Much of Almanac elaborates on this basic premise, as well as on Leopold's view that it is something of a human duty to preserve as much wild land as possible, as a kind of bank for the biological future of all species. Beautifully written, quiet, and elegant, Leopold's book deserves continued study and discussion today. --Gregory McNamee --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

These original essays on the natural environment by renowned conservationist Leopold (1887-1948) were first published posthumously in 1949. In this edition, more than 80 lush photographs shot by nature photographer Sewell on Leopold's former Wisconsin farm accompany the text. Following the seasons, Leopold, whose seminal work in the U.S. Forest Service and in books and magazines helped shape the conservation movement in this country, shared his perceptive and carefully observed portraits of nature month by month. In April, he watched the "sky dance" of the woodcock, who flew upward in a series of spirals. As he hunted partridges in October, his way was lit by "red lanterns," the blackberry leaves that shone in the sun. A November rumination details how the products of tree diseases provide wooded shelters for woodpeckers, hives for wild bees and food for chickadees. Included also is an appreciative essay on wild marshland and several pieces stressing the importance of protecting the natural environment. Leopold sadly observed, "there is yet no ethic dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it." His hope that society would develop an "ecological conscience" by placing what should be preserved above what is economically expedient remains relevant today. These evocative essays about the farm Leopold loved will again be enjoyed by nature lovers and preservationists alike. Though the book has been continuously in print, this beautiful illustrated edition, with its introduction by nature writer Brower (The Starship and the Canoe) will attract fans and newcomers and will make a great gift book this holiday season.

A Volunteer’s First Maker Faire

What a magical place! My first time at Mini Maker Faire was the overwhelming array of sights, sounds and motions that I had hoped for. The Makerverse was a hustling, bustling assault of the senses.

 

As an early morning volunteer, I headed to the front gate to begin my shift, passing the beginnings of stalls I saw many things that intrigued me: weird shapes protruding, projections screens expanding, messes of criss-crossing wires and circuits, cables being gaffered to the ground and strange objects lifted from boxes.  I wanted to explore, but I knew I had to focus on helping out. I spent the morning volunteering at ticketing, where I saw kids buzzing with excitement; jumping, squirming and smiling ear to ear. It’s good to see that the Maker movement has captured the hearts of those so young.

Lead poisoning hampers California condors' survival

http://www.nature.com/news/california-condors-face-lead-menace-1.10883

Lead poisoning is keeping the California condor populations from rebounding, which suggests that captive breeding and other conservation efforts may have to be perpetual, according to a study. In the wild, they ingest lead from bullets in the carcasses of hunted animals. Twenty percent of wild condors have enough lead poisoning to warrant costly medical care.

Want terabit internet? Get light to do the twist

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn21970-want-terabit-internet-get-light-to-do-the-twist.html

12:04 25 June 2012 by MacGregor Campbell

If you want ultra-fast wireless internet, just get light to do the twist.

The wireless and fibre-optic links that make up the internet use electromagnetic waves to carry data as a series of pulses at a specific frequency. It is possible to increase the amount of data transmitted at a given frequency by twisting light beams in different ways. Each beam has a different angular momentum and acts as an independent channel in a larger, composite, beam.

Now Jian Wang, Alan Willner and colleagues at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles have used the twisting technique to transmit over a terabit of data per second. By comparison home WiFi routers typically run at around 50 megabits per second.

Because there are many ways to twist light, the team was able to combine beams with eight different types of twist, each carrying its own independent sequence of pulses.

Willner says the technique could be used between satellites in space, or over shorter distances on Earth. "It's another dimension by which you can transmit data."

Right now, it works only in free-space as current fibre-optic technology distorts twisted light.

Study Shows Older Americans Can Increase Physical Function, Reduce Risk of Disability by Walking

July 18, 2008 -- A news study by researchers at the University of Georgia shows that older folks who kept up with a walking program for four months had "significant" health improvements over a group that didn't walk.

"In the past decade, researchers have focused on the benefits ofstrength training in maintaining independence, but until now we didn't have good evidence using an objective performance measure that a walking program would improve physical functioning," researcher M. Elaine Cress, PhD says in a news release.

"Our study found that walking offers tremendous health benefits that can help older adults stay independent," says Cress, a professor of kinesiology and a researcher in the University of Georgia Institute of Gerontology.

The Participants

 

The Study

The participants were randomly split into two groups, the walkers and a control group, which attended nutrition education classes.

The walkers met three times a week for four months.

At first, they walked for 10 minutes straight. It was increased to 40 minutes, with 10 minutes of warm-up and cool-down stretching.

Both groups were given a battery of tests to assess aerobic capacity and physical function, which included how well the participants performed simple daily living tasks such as putting on a jacket or carrying a bag of groceries.

Both groups had baseline testing at the beginning and end of the study.

After just four months, the walking group fared much better in all levels of fitness.

Results

"Aerobic capacity is really the engine that we draw upon for doing the things we want to do, whether it's cleaning up around the house or running a marathon," Cress says. "By increasing their aerobic capacity, the walking group was better able to perform their daily tasks and had more energy left over for recreational activities, like going out dancing."

Researcher Trudy Moore-Harrison, PhD says not only were the results telling, but the participants "really enjoyed the program" and "got a chance to know their neighbors."

"We know that walking is good for you, but too many people still aren't doing it," Moore-Harrison says in a news release. "This study shows that just walking on a regular basis can make a huge impact on quality of life."

The researchers write that most exercise intervention studies involve people who are affluent. They stress the importance of looking at lower economic segments of society.

They urge further research into whether low-cost walking programs can make a difference in helping people with lower incomes enjoy healthier, independent older years.

The results are published in the Journal of Geriatric Physical Therapy.
