An ethereal blend of two voices, guided by fate to find each other, travels the wire from iTunes to earbuds and into my ear canal a€” so exquisite, ita€™s almost unbearable. Hannah and Maggiea€™s almost unearthly harmonies evoke descriptions like a€?Simon and Garfunkel crossed with the Indigo Girls.a€? Indeed, they have been included in a number of Simon and Garfunkel tributes.
When Hannah was around 10, there was an electric guitar sitting in the living room, a leftover from one of her fathera€™s stage roles. The drama club would host coffeehouses every first Friday and that was where Hannah first performed solo, singing her songs and accompanying herself on guitar. Maggie was in chorus, but switched her energies to forming rock bands when she was still in middle school. Although Hannah earned a degree in American Studies with a focus on Race and Ethnicity and Maggie in Comparative Literature with a focus on English and Spanish Literature, it would be music that defined their path going forward. The house to which Hannah was assigned was an old, Victorian-style residence (the oldest on campus) that, at 50 coeds, was smaller than most. At some point they harmonized on one anothera€™s songs and some friends suggested that they sing together. Hannah graduated in 2011 and moved to New York City, with Maggie still having one year left. In January of 2012, they recorded their second album, the aforementioned Muscle & Bone, and released it in May.
Hea€™d come backstage to change costumes and she would witness the transformation of her father to an actor with a€?elaborate costumes and crazy makeup.a€? She absorbed the idea that investing onea€™s time into performance and the arts was a valuable thing. Maggiea€™s dad was happy that she was playing acoustic, and wasna€™t thrilled that her goal was to play rock.
There was a broad range of types of performance, ranging from poetry and music (Hannah would sing and play guitar) to displays of visual art or even hair styling. In 2010, Hannaha€™s junior year, they sat down to play music together working on covers and originals.

But since I have been married nearly 20 years to my husband, Michael, I guess I should commit. Kate Michaels has asked me to write a reference for her in support of her internship application and I am delighted to do so.
Professor Donaldson if you need any additional information about Kate Michaels please contact me by phone or email. I know the problem was the instructions and not the burrito because I gave it a second try. The new four story condominium development on Bank Street features homes with state of the art appliances and the latest in furnishings.

The question before the Supreme Court involves states rights, and governors around the country will be watching. Final Event: Race to the Finish As quickly as you can, add hyphens, apostrophes, commas, and semicolons to the passage below.
College professors encourage their students extensive vocabulary and 50 word compound complex sentences. Much college writing includes perfectly structured paragraphs with an introduction three or more supporting sentences and a conclusion. Did you insert two semicolons, five to seven commas (depending on whether you use the serial comma), three apostrophes, and five hyphens? Many middle-aged (not middle-age) people plan to work beyond the age of 65 (not age 65).
Our system administrators have identified an issue with one of our mail arrays related to a hardware failure of one storage member in the SAN. A creative yet pragmatic communicator with award-winning experience in narrative storytelling and news production. Extensive experience in film production, with works featured in regional, national, and international film festivals. Proficiency in handling sensitive matters and communicating diplomatically with people of differing views. Strong skills and experience in research and in communicating through letters, emails, op-eds, social media, and speeches.
Supervised support staff of 14, including legal secretaries, paralegals, and general office support. Consistently maintained Number 1 or 2 ranking for order fulfillment in a team of 32 order pickers. Created a system for finance managers that generated and emailed monthly financial reports and spreadsheets for on-time budget planning.
Review your older jobs and accomplishments to be sure the language still communicates well. For instance, if you are more than 10 years out of school, drop your college activities unless they communicate something unique and amazing. Imagine this situation: That job you held from 1993 to 1996 was once a significant part of your resume, worthy of five bullet points of accomplishments. Just as emptying your closet of old clothes helps you focus on and build a new wardrobe, eliminating old resume details helps you focus on and build a case for the newest phase of your career. Replace some of the text with concise bullet points if you have chunks of text that are longer than three lines. Replace typefaces such as Times New Roman and Book Antiqua with a sans serif typeface like Trebuchet, and see if you like the difference. Experiment with incorporating a strong left alignment rather than centered headings, to communicate energy rather than formality.
College instructors sometimes ask me to recommend a text to use in their business writing classes.
I'm pleased to announce a complete new communications curriculum for college instructors. One of my many favorite learning activities from the curriculum involves revising relationship-busting statements. If you are a college instructor, you can find about more about the free curriculum and how to receive it. If you are not a college instructor but want to try your hand at revising the statement above, please do!

It has been great to see the attendance high and keeping high, even over the Easter weekend, and also to see different boats on each occasion, some of whom are new to LTSC Meets.
Bucklers Hard was another good gathering, although as far as I was concerned not entirely incident free.
I naturally decided to keep somewhat to starboard going in to leave plenty of room for the turn to port, but somewhat over-did it. Tuska€™s resident professional skipper later told me that this is the fourth time something similar has happened to them in recent times whilst berthed and involving an insurance claim! Chichester two weeks later was a much less stressful and a more pastoral affair for Selene and myself. I did not make the Poole Meet, Selene being out of the water to have her annual anti-foul, sail-drive service, and scrub up. The recent Open Day, and otherwise, seem to have provided us with a very good new intake of members specifically interested in sailing on yachts rather than dinghies, and in a couple of instances who own nice cruising yachts. One thing that does concern me is finding ways to get those who do not own boats sailing with those of us who do, and thus into the swing of things. It is not so bad for those who are free to sail on Wednesdays and can Meander, and this does provide some sort of a way in for new members.
One thing we could do, although not because of all the other meets until the autumn, would be to restart the Saturday Saunterers in something like its original form.


So we should perhaps try again in the autumn, but with proper pre-announced destinations and the draw of a decent lunch. A closely related matter is that several of those who have joined recently have sailing experience but some time ago, or on dinghies rather than yachts, and have said things like their a€?knots are a bit rustya€? (hint - try not using wire rope?) At least one took the very sensible step of taking an RYA Competent Crew course before actually coming along to join the club. Something we could do, which would also get people meeting each other, is to book the pontoon one Saturday, get two or three yachts alongside, and so some revision of basics like knots, how to make up lines on a cleat, springing off, etc.
Keith Willis, our Rear Commodore Sailing, with a couple of other dinghies, is intending to sail an Osprey to Alderney this summer, something that is well documented as a tradition in the club years ago.
As everybody knows, Mike Kelly is our admirable Admiral as far as the LTSC Annual Cruise goes, and year after year he works very hard at researching the itinerary, making berth bookings etc etc. He usually goes on the cruise on Graham Swetmana€™s boat, so it was interesting when I caught him during one cruise looking severely at Graham and pointing and I captioned it. I think I converted the photo to B&W with an intent to use it in the then printed a€?Cruising Newslettera€?.
So a very nice weekend.A  The facilities at Chichester are excellent, and the marina is well run with a smooth running system on VHF where you book in when wanting to leave and then get called in groups of 3 or 4 when it is your turn for the lock. Keith Willis, our Rear Commodore Sailing, with a couple of other dinghies, is intending to sail an Osprey to Alderney this summer, something that is well documented as a tradition in the club years ago.A  Duncan Wright is intending to take his RIB across with them, as I believe is Dave Gorringe.
Hannah Hickok and Maggie Kraus, a lesbian folk-pop duo, look at all the facets of living a€” loving, losing, friendship a€” as if peering through a microscope, taking the facets apart and reassembling them with delicate, faerie fingers.
In a perfect world, I think their articulate expression of lives so sharply felt and lived could change a listenera€™s DNA. Her parents were actors but her mother quit the theater when Hannah was born in favor of another career path.
In addition to the exposure to Broadway musical theater tunes, folk revival classics like James Taylor and Joni Mitchell were played often. She was a member of the all-female and coed a capella groups and the chorus all four years of high school.
After learning the basics, she and a small group of other campers performed for everyone in camp. Shea€™d coax boys into being members of her bands, selecting roles for them (a€?OK, Brian, youa€™re gonna play drumsa€¦a€?), regardless of their lack of experience.
She hated the results and invested in an MBox, a portable computer recording interface (with mic and instrument ports) for computers.
Hannah ran the coffeehouse events each month with few exceptions, and with even more regularity when she was house president in her junior and senior years. So Maggie visited Hannah regularly at Hannaha€™s campus residence and found the vibe relaxed and inviting, more so than her own residence. At the end of the summer they completed a two-week Northeast tour, their first extended travel on the road. After Maggie graduated they embarked on their first national tour, jumping from Portland, Maine to Nashville to Salt Lake City.
We were thrilled to include them in our late-night guerrilla showcase at the 2013 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference and wea€™re eager to help them promote their new album. And I know that many readers, followers of AP and Chicago, wonder why I am not using the commas. Kate worked with me from January, 2014 through August, 2015 as a teaching assistant in our marketing program, I was her direct supervisor. She used creative approaches to help students' understand complex concepts in marketing statistics.
Perhaps my carelessly following rather than interpreting the instructions wrecked the meal? Buyers looking for beautifully appointed two and three bedroom contemporary homes with open floor plans will want to visit this high end development.
Whether they live in New York, New York or Cairo, Egypt, people like to feel included and informed. Professors and teachers admire academic writing however readers needs on the job are different.
Although business writing contains elegantly structured chunks of text it also features one sentence paragraphs. Proven ability in written and visual communication, with particular expertise in social media. Eliminate early jobs such as working in a frozen yogurt shop (unless you are applying for a fast-food management position) and acting as a camp counselor (unless you are still in the counseling field). For example, the SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS shown in Tip 1 above includes this list, which might include links to online samples (indicated by underlining): letters, emails, op-eds, social media, and speeches. Your resume should make you feel pleased, proud, and confident as you move into your future. Both instructors and students can benefit from the tips on completing the assignment--tips about the purpose of the message, its audience, the communication strategy, and content. Students first recognize why the instructor statements below are relationship busters. I have not been that far up Southampton Water before, but you cannot get lost - carry on until you have just passed the big silver dome that houses the incinerator and the view ahead is full of cranes, containers, and container ships, and you have reached Marchwood YC whose pontoons will be on your left.
The food was good and they had, perhaps appropriately for the 1950s architecture, a beer on tap that seemed to be something that has disappeared from the pubs down here.
We brought up temporarily on the C pontoon hammerhead whilst Peter Bennett went ashore to get a berth allocation from the HM - they do not operate on VHF and we could get no signal on our mobile phones. All was OK as I started in, taking account of the cross-tide, but just as I had fully turned into the fairway there was a sudden very heavy gust. Mike Knowles has been working valiantly on lists of those who want to find yachts to sail on, and of skippers willing to take new crew.
However quite a few of the newer people are younger and work, so cannot sail and make their initial contact with skippers on a Wednesday.
In recent years it declined to a very pale imitation of the Meanderers, with a meeting in the Solent Room one Saturday every month. Ideally I think it should be run by a newer member and one of those who are working mid-week since this would provide some a€?creative tensiona€? with the Meanderers. And if there were sufficient interest we could have a yacht or two doing a€?trips round the baya€? meantime to get crew introduced to skippers, etc.
This for those of a historical disposition later got renamed TellTales whilst remaining still purely a Cruising Newsletter under that title, until eventually we, the cruisers, agreed to let the rest of the club also put other stuff in it because the general LTSC Newsletter a€?Mainsheeta€? had become essentially defunct. Selene is due to go back in the water tomorrow, sans radar pole, after being anti-fouled etc.
I have not been that far up Southampton Water before, but you cannot get lost - carry on until you have just passed the big silver dome that houses the incinerator and the view ahead is full of cranes, containers, and container ships, and you have reached Marchwood YC whose pontoons will be on your left.A  The very hospitable club is housed in what is left of the old military port with a classic taste of MoD guard-house architecture. So what about some yachts going across with them - for one thing this could provide some berths for the evening for the dinghy guys, for another would be much in the a€?one-cluba€? spirit, and we could probably have quite a good evening, either in Braye or up the hill in St Anne, once we are there. Because Hannah and Maggie plunge a rapier of emotional honesty into the psyche, the listener might become a better person, more empathetic. She performed in musical plays a€” her first was when she was 5 a€” and was in chorus all through grade school and high school. He taught her how to play The Beatlesa€™ a€?Blackbird,a€? the first song she ever learned on guitar. She always liked music and, like Hannah, she was exposed to folk revivalists James Taylor and Joni Mitchell. There was supposed to be an a€?officiala€? staged performance at the end of the camp session, but it never happened. In 2001, Maggie was 11 going on 12 when, with her own allowance, she bought the Fender Stratocaster that she still occasionally plays. In high school, tired of wrangling other students into supporting her, she returned to acoustic guitar and performed with two friends as an acoustic trio. Using her acoustic guitar, she began making her own digital recordings of songs using Pro Tools software. There was a large living room where everyone would gather together at teatime once a week on Fridays. Shea€™d roam the halls, listening for good voices singing, perhaps idly, that she might recruit for the a capella group.


Toward the end of Maggiea€™s freshman year, there was an event where graduating seniors were given a send-off banquet. Later, in December, they opened for Dar Williams, an inspirational figure and thus, for them, their most notable performance to date. Carefully remove from oven, peel off plastic film and allow to sit for 1 minute before serving. In reply, they sent me a coupon for a free frozen entree, and I bought the same burrito.
When new things come to light in your job search or profession, share them with your network. Business writers will use a one sentence paragraph when they want a statement to stand out. Apply these tips to make your resume fresh and representative of who you are today, with an eye to tomorrow.
Assignments cover explanations, requests, bad-news messages, inquiries, solicitations, messages saying no, complaint resolutions, a range of job-search messages, and other pieces. Instructors can never be sure where students may go wrong with a writing assignment that requires them to imagine themselves communicating on the job. The course, Business Writing That Builds Relationships, developed out of my long-standing interest in diplomatic, relationship-building messages at work. What a splendid start to the season, a Meet every fortnight and glorious weather more or less throughout. I did not like the berth allocated, A10, which was narrow and going to be hard to turn into with the wind, which at that point had freshened to about F5, blowing straight up Selenea€™s stern as we approached up what little fairway there is between A and B. Selenea€™s T-keel conveys rather little lateral resistance unless she has a bit of way on, and I was slewed and blown onto the protruding anchor platform of a 19 metre LOA Grand Banks MV (ironically called Tusk) berthed on the B pontoon hammer-head. In my case when leaving one sounder display showed minus 0.3 metres for a couple of moments (I have two displays with different offsets!), but we escaped nonetheless. However he reports the obvious - skippers are conservative creatures, and like taking their established crews! Memories of my time as an RAF cadet marching into various airfields in the 1950s came flooding back, see the picture below.
But locked in with only a short free flow period, and 7 miles from the sea, would not be to my taste as a permanent base. A case in point is the stark beauty of a€?Curfewa€? from their second album, Muscle & Bone.
Initially, shea€™d crank the sound up on a little amp, playing a€?awful musica€? in her bedroom.
At some point in high school, the computer crashed, taking hundreds of hours of recordings with it.
When Hannah had settled in, she wanted to replicate the coffeehouses shea€™d experienced in high school, so she offered to organize a coffeehouse event at teatime one Friday per month.
We recommend a visit to their website, where their blog will provide more insight into their gentle, quirky humor as well as photographic glimpses of their adventures on tour. She took initiative to enhance online outreach to students, showed evidence of a keen understanding of both short term results and long term benefits of various marketing strategies, and consistently delivered professional, high-quality work. My friend Sarah began a job search on September 1, 2007 and ended it three months later, nevertheless, she still networks. Having seen someone else get into difficulties up there and have to be rescued and turned in by the HMa€™s assistant in his dory, I asked the HM for somewhere else but no joy. Or, to be exact, the pole on Selenea€™s stern holding my radar and other antennae was (the radar is there because the self-tacking jib does not give enough clearance in front of the mast).
Other than the streaming hay-fever I was suffering from, the whole weekend was extremely pleasant.
I started the Saunterers and then persuaded Sheila Wicks to take over, and it worked well for a while on the basis that it would go to a definite place where we could all get ashore for lunch, one not normally frequented by the Wednesday Meanderers, and that the destination would be announced by e-mail a couple of days in advance once the likely weather was known. Perhaps if we go to Marchwood again I should take one of my trumpets along so we could do a proper colours ceremony? Hannah wrote the song and sings the lead vocal with a call-and-response from Maggie in a passage near the end. Her first performance was in sixth grade in a school function called a€?The Extreme Concert,a€? a faculty showcase she was allowed to enter. Nevertheless, she continued writing and performing at a lot of fundraisers, open mics, showcases and other school events. Hannah, visibly moved, thought, a€?Wow, this girl knows what shea€™s doing.a€? The song is on their first album and Hannah stated that it has been a fan favorite and has won two songwriting awards. They were upset but not discouraged and committed wholeheartedly to continue playing together. Hannah wrote the song andA  sings the lead vocal with a call-and-response from Maggie in a passage near the end.
At least I got the mast and the shrouds past before the gust, but the radar pole suffered, see below. An extremely nice meal was had by all on Good Friday in the Chichester Yacht Club, with their hi-tech buzzing and flashing devices to tell you when your individual meal was ready for you to collect.
This not only provided a vehicle for those who were not free on Wednesdays, but also for those whose boats were not parked in Lymington. It might simply be an unrequited love song, but it could easily describe a heartbreaking failed connection between two people, one who is gay and one who is straight or who is latently gay but not ready to accept a same-sex relationship. She took lessons in her first year of high school and then learned more on her own by figuring out how to play covers. Maggie quickly seized the opportunity to organize her own a€?unpluggeda€? coffeehouse events.
This past summer, I attended the 2013 CT Folk Festival and saw them perform and introduce new contestants for the songwriting competition. So unfortunately did Tuska€™s bow and varnished capping rail, and various efforts by the HM in his dory and others who took a line on the dock, pulling in opposite directions, bent a couple of Selenea€™s stanchions and damaged her gel coat for a few centimetres along the toe rail when rubbing against Tuska€™s prow. On the lay-day, Easter Saturday, Robyn and Peter, with most of the others, walked into Chichester itself, whilst I stayed around the boat and did a few odd jobs, and ate lunch in the very nice marina restaurant. I dona€™t think it is a coincidence that the idea began to decline once Sheila handed it over and the path of least resistance as a copy pure and simple of the Meanderers took over.

Hours were spent learning chords for songs she wanted to sing by researching guitar tabs on the Internet, figuring out how to play them.
This past year also saw them begin recording their third album, In the Company of Strangers, their first with Purebred.
This past year also saw them begin recording their third album,A  In the Company of Strangers, their first with Purebred. That evening we had a a€?pontoon partya€?, but on the grass, and Andie and Mike Smith whetted some peoplesa€™ competitive instincts by organising an egg-and-spoon race.
Having gotten acquainted with Hannah in the Smiffenpoofs, Maggie had watched YouTube videos of her playing acoustic guitar and singing, so she invited Hannah to perform at her coffeehouse.

Hannaha€™s performance at Maggiea€™s residence would be the first time either witnessed the other playing live. Like a smack addict, I play the track again and again, nodding off over and over in rushes of aching, sweet melancholy.
Highly recommended.THEN A BAND TOOK TO THE STAGE WHICH TOOK US BOTH COMPLETELY BY SURPRISE!
