Contemporary Christian artist David Phelps has performed at the White House, Carnegie Hall in New York City, and a number of other prestigious venues.

He will also appear at the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion on Friday.

The event, a fundraiser for the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion Association, begins at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $ 75 each and are available at www.friendsofthemansion.org.

For Phelps, it will be a repeat.

The last time he was greeted by the then governor. Mike Huckabee and First Lady Janet Huckabee. This time his hosts are Governor Asa Hutchinson and his wife, Susan.

“When I heard that David Phelps had played [at a Grand Hall dedication ceremony] … I asked him to help us celebrate the 70th anniversary of the mansion. I thought it would be a poetic way to unify the original mansion with the addition of the Great Hall, ”said the first lady.

Technically, the mansion is 71 years old; Like the Summer Olympics, the anniversary concert is a year late due to covid delays.

Phelps won the Grammy Awards and Dove Awards as part of the Gaither Vocal Band; since then, the tenor has continued to sell records and attract crowds.

“He’s one of the greatest tenors we’ve ever had: a great, great tenor,” said Bill Gaither.

Susan Hutchinson shares this assessment.

“I have always been impressed with the voice, performance and repertoire of David Phelps. The Arkansans will also be impressed,” she said. “I am delighted that our Arkansas Governor’s Mansion Association is sponsoring the pledge to benefit David Phelps.”

In an email, Phelps said he was happy to return to his natural state.

“Arkansas is like a second home to us. My wife, Lori, was born in Magnolia and she still has family living in the Hope area. We have enjoyed many great meals and reunions in this amazing state. tour we have traveled from corner to corner state and many places in between. There has always been a warm welcome and a night to remember, “he said.

The performance in the Great Hall will be enjoyable, he said.

“Years ago I sang at the Governor’s Mansion at the dedication after its renovation. It was a beautiful evening concert in the gardens outside. Then we went inside to the hall. to eat and had an amazing meal and a great conversation, ”he said. “The mansion is as beautiful as you could hope for … a perfect representation for the people of Arkansas.”

Although best known for his religious songs, Phelps says there will be a lot of variety in his playlist.

“We always do a mix of styles and genres of music,” he said. “Everything from classic to Broadway, to pop and gospel. And of course, being at the Governor’s Mansion, we’re sure to make some patriotic standards.”

Need clarification on one of the many trucking regulations?

Truck drivers will have the chance to pose their questions to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration during a town hall meeting Friday, September 24 at the Guilty By Association Truck Show in Joplin, Missouri.

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association invited Joe DeLorenzo, Director of the Office of Enforcement and Compliance of the FMCSA, to participate in a panel discussion. The panel will also include the President of OOIDA, Todd Spencer, and Collin Long, Director of Government Affairs of OOIDA. OOIDA Executive Vice President Lewie Pugh and Jay Grimes, OOIDA Director of Federal Affairs, will also be in attendance at town hall and the question-and-answer session. It is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday, September 24.

“This is a great opportunity for truckers to be able to ask questions of the FMCSA or get clarification on any rule or regulation,” Pugh said. “How often does a trucker get a chance to sit down and talk with the FMCSA and get clarification on a settlement?” This is an opportunity for a productive dialogue between the truckers and the FMCSA.

The event will take place at the 4 State Trucks installation shop on the east side of Highway 43.

GBATS

GBATS is back in person after being forced to offer only a virtual experience in 2020.

Shinedown will play at the Pinewood Bowl on September 22.

The last time Shinedown performed Lincoln, the hard rock group drew over 8,500 people to Pinnacle Bank Arena. So it’s no surprise that his Wednesday show Pinewood Bowl is expected to sell all 4,800 tickets available.

Shinedown, the toughest touring band in the industry, performed more shows and traveled more miles than any other band in 2019. Pulled off the road by the pandemic, the band have recorded a new album due out next year , then became one of the first groups to hit the road again this summer.

Drummer Barry Kerch contracted COVID-19 before the tour began, but has recovered and is now fully vaccinated, allowing Shinedown to come out and perform shows in indoor and outdoor venues.

L. Kent Wolgamott: Music revenue figures show why artists need to hit the road

“We got Barry back, and then we were very thorough with the protocol. We always have to do it behind the scenes, ”singer Brent Smith told HardDrive Radio. “We kind of created our own bubble. The crew stays with the crew. The group stays with the group and the team. No one at the moment is able to go to any type of large areas where there are a bunch of people without a mask… because if any of the group members are positive we are in a bad situation. .

Wednesday’s show is also notable for one of its acts of support. The Struts, an English glam rock quartet, is, along with Greta Van Fleet and Rival Sons, one of the hottest new rock groups. Their highly regarded, bright and energetic shows deliver their blend of power pop, glam, sludgy rock and R&B with a style that could make them the band that brings rock back to the forefront of pop.

A park bench can be more than just a place to sit and wait. Maybe it contains a puzzle or weights that allow children to take action.

This story also appeared in The Conversation

As researchers studying the links between play and development, we are interested in how the reinvention of public spaces can infuse playful learning opportunities into the time children spend outside of school.

In a July 2021 article we wrote for the peer-reviewed journal Trends in cognitive science, we describe how experts can help communities create fun public spaces where children can learn while playing.

To support children’s learning, public play spaces should be designed according to the six Learning Principles, which reflect how children most effectively absorb new information.

According to the six principles, activities should be active or “mental”, not passive. They should demand that participants be engaged and not distracted. They must be meaningful, linked to the children’s previous experiences and knowledge. They should elicit social interaction with caregivers and friends. They should be iterative – updating understanding based on new information – rather than repetitive. And finally, they should be cheerful and generate positive feelings or a sense of surprise.

The following public space projects illustrate how these principles come to life. We provided scientific advice for the first two projects, and this work helped inspire the creation of the non-profit Playful Learning Landscapes Action Network.

Urban Thinkscape Bus Stop

In the Belmont neighborhood of Philadelphia, an installation called Urban Thinkscape has transformed a bus stop into a playful learning space.

Along with a neighborhood civic association, a group of psychologists and architects partnered with community members, city leaders and nonprofits to redesign a land where Martin Luther King Jr. led the Freedom Now rally in 1965.

An updated version of hopscotch has kids jump into different patterns. Sahar Coston-Hardy Photography, CC BY-NC-ND

“Stories” consists of a climbing wooden deck with embedded images of familiar objects, such as a book and the sun, designed to help children create and tell original stories. “Hidden Figures” is a metal sculpture with hidden images like fruits and shapes designed to exercise spatial skills. By reading the shadows on the ground, families can find figures that change as the sun moves across the sky. “Jumping Feet” is a version of hopscotch that requires executive skills such as attention, memory, and self-control. And the “Puzzle Wall” is a series of four puzzles featuring different images of important characters and events chosen by the neighborhood civic association. It also promotes spatial skills.

The project involved hiring and training community members to observe adults and children using the space. They found that caregivers and children on site interacted more – both with each other and with the space – than they did before the facility was created. In fact, the level of interaction was similar to that of a neighborhood playground a few blocks away.

Play-and-Learn Libraries

Also in Philadelphia, Play-and-Learn Spaces has reinvented three children’s library spaces.

The design process, led by Studio Ludo and Digsau and assisted by Smith Playground, began by inviting families who regularly visit libraries to rethink what a children’s library could be. One of the installations is a climbing wall where children create words by climbing different paths on the surface of the wall. Another is to sit with large movable puzzle pieces. And the third is a scene with magnetic letters where children can create stories on the wall.

By observing how people used the spaces, the researchers found that adults and children in Play-and-Learn spaces had more literacy-related conversations, such as speaking and spelling words, and using more words. spatial, such as talking about objects being “over” or “under” other objects, versus libraries where Play-and-Learn spaces were not installed. Installations also increased positive emotions and interactions physical, and reduced the use of mobile phones and tablets.

MathTalk sidewalks

A final example comes from the Port District of Cambridge, Massachusetts, where the nonprofit MathTalk and community members co-designed six temporary play sites for a neighborhood sidewalk. For example, a gigantic digital line has spurred counting and measurement discussions by presenting opportunities to measure the length of objects in the environment and play games as Simon says. Sidewalk Math encouraged children to jump, jump and jump to learn more about counting and patterns.

MathTalk interviewed and observed community members using the site and documented how the activities supported conversations and math learning. Building on the success of the project in encouraging families to find math in everyday places, MathTalk has since expanded to libraries, health clinics and other spaces.

By working with local communities and basing designs on the Six Pillars of Learning, these places serve as models for how neighborhoods can create new, family-friendly play sites in everyday spaces.

For some people, music is a form of medicine because of its potential to heal the soul.

The Maryland Cultural and Conference Center (MC3) and the Warrior Music Foundation are teaming up for Warriors in the Park, an Annapolis festival on September 11 from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Michael Caimona hopes the concert will be a cure for veterans and first responders in need.

“I lost friends by suicide and I really felt like I had to do something about it,” said Caimona, who founded the Warrior Music Foundation four years ago. “I had been involved in music and thought that was a way to help.”

Although people have hosted concerts on behalf of the organization in the past, Warriors in the Park is the foundation’s first concert.

Headlining the concert, VEER, a hard rock band from Annapolis, founded in 2016 by Ronald Malfi, Jon Malfi, Ryan Fowler and Christian Mathis. The International Singer Songwriters Association has just rewarded VEER with the bronze prize for American group of the year. VEER has directly supported several national artists, including Buckcherry, Sponge, Fuel, Puddle of Mudd, Trapt and 40 Below Summer.

“We are very happy to have our first show in 18 months for such a great cause,” said Jon Malfi. “We love what the Warrior Music Foundation stands for, and all the good they do! It’s a perfect event to kick off our next round of show dates.”

Caimona said his foundation has broad support from groups in the region and VEER is at the top of his list.

“Jon Malfi has been a partner of mine and has done a lot of marketing for Warrior Music,” he said. “Ryan Fowler runs one of the studios where we offer music therapy.”

Sarah Paige, 1IDentity and Mac & Blue will also be performing during Warriors in the Park. Other activities include a silent auction, several food and drink vendors, and information about other local veterans and arts organizations.

There will also be an evening candlelight ceremony to honor the 20th anniversary of September 11th.

“September 11th was the catalyst for many people to join the service,” Caimona said. “This anniversary of September 11 is an important part of the lives of military personnel and first responders. I think it’s important that we all recognize what this day represents.

Caimona did 10 years of active service and served as a military contractor. Her nonprofit primarily serves Maryland and western Pennsylvania, but it has expanded its reach online during the coronavirus pandemic.

“With the online platform, there is no longer a geographic border,” Caimona said.

The Warrior Music Foundation offers free music therapy and music lessons with the goal of improving mental health, one person at a time. Recipients are active duty military personnel, veterans and their families as they face the complexities of service including post-traumatic stress, depression, traumatic brain injury, physical disabilities and financial hardship. The foundation also provides services to law enforcement and first responders.

“We collect a lot of data and we know that about 95% of people with pre-existing conditions who come to us have found a benefit,” Caimona said. “We’ve had veterans tell us it helped them find their voice. “

The concert and candlelight vigil will take place at StageOne at MC3, located at 3 Park Place, Suite 4, in Annapolis. Tickets cost $ 25 and can be purchased on Eventbrite by searching for “Warriors in the Park”.
