Neil Gaiman

April 15, 2010

April 16
North Central High School

If you attended every one of the McFadden Memorial Lectures since 1978, you would have seen a who’s who of contemporary writers, from Tom Wolfe and Kurt Vonnegut to Eric “A Very Hungry Caterpillar” Carle and Nicholas “Read ’em and weep” Sparks.
As far as I can tell, though, there hasn’t been a writer of creepy supernatural fiction. Until now.
On Friday, Neil Gaiman, author of “The Graveyard Book” and “Coraline,” will be the featured speaker. If you don’t have time to catch up on your Gaiman reading before then, put together a quick double feature of the films of “Coraline” and his fantasy “Stardust.” Of course, seeing the movies isn’t the same as losing yourself in the books.
Note: There won’t be a book signing at this event. Details here.

"Shots in the Dark: Photos by Weegee the Famous"

April 15, 2010

April 17-Jan. 23
Indianapolis Museum of Art

The term “ambulance chaser” doesn’t seem so bad when it applies to a photographer capable of producing what Arthur Fellig did.
Better known as Weegee, Fellig turned the underbelly of New York City into a stark, black-and-white world, primarily during the 1930s and 1940s. His book “Naked City” was the inspiration for the 1948 film “The Naked City” (which, to no surprise, won an Oscar for Best Cinematography).
This exhibition will feature 48 of his works from among 210 acquired by the IMA in 2008. Included are crime scene shots, celebrity photos and clandestine photos of movie theater audiences (taken with infrared film). Details here.

"A Chorus Line"

April 15, 2010

April 20-25
Clowes Hall

In 1975, two shows opened on Broadway within weeks of each other. One featured big stars, a scandalous story and a legendary director. The other featured a no-name cast, no set to speak of, and little by way of plot.
The first did respectable business but struggled at the box office. The second won a Pulitzer and a Tony, and became the longest running show up to that time in Broadway history.
The first was “Chicago.” The second was “A Chorus Line.”
Both shows have had interesting afterlives. “A Chorus Line” devolved into a train-wreck of a movie. “Chicago,” meanwhile, sparked an Oscar-winning Best Picture. On the other foot, the 1996 revival of “Chicago” is still running on Broadway (making it the reigning longest redo ever) while the 2006 “Chorus Line” remount earned back its investment but didn’t generate much excitement.
While it had many regional productions in between, “A Chorus Line” will be a new experience for many audience members. Here’s hoping at least some of the original magic remains in this singular sensation. Details here.

Correction

April 14, 2010

The April 7 issue of IBJ Health Care & Reform Weekly incorrectly stated that Clarian Health no longer plans to have physician investors in the Saxony hospital it is building near Fishers. Clarian is unlikely to have physician investors in the new hospital, but its officials are still evaluating the impact of a new health care law that forbids physician ownership of new hospitals.

Company news

April 14, 2010

Indianapolis-based Strand Analytical Laboratories LLC sold its paternity and immigration DNA testing unit to Orchid Cellmark Inc., a New Jersey company with annual revenue of $450,000. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Beginning in late June, Eli Lilly and Co. will move all 1,000 employees at its Faris campus on South Meridian Street in Indianapolis to its Lilly Corporate Center complex on McCarty Street. Lilly’s ongoing staff cuts have reduced its need for the Faris space, and the Indianapolis company wants to locate its employees on the same campus as part of a new business structure. The company hired CB Richard Ellis in August to lease the 465,000 square feet on the Faris campus. Lilly first said in October that it would move all 1,000 employees out of the Faris complex. The campus opened in late 2002.

Purdue University has received $14.9 million in federal stimulus funding from the National Institutes of Health to expand its Bindley Bioscience Center for cancer and life sciences research in West Lafayette. Purdue expects to hire 30 to 40 people to conduct federally funded research on animals at the center once the expansion opens in April 2013. The 29,000-square-foot addition will be called the Multidisciplinary Cancer Research Facility at Purdue. Construction is set to begin in August. The Bindley Bioscence Center, located on Purdue’s Discovery Park research campus, opened in 2005. The existing facility is 50,000 square feet.

"Schoolhouse Rock Live!"

April 7, 2010

April 12-17
Indianapolis Civic Theatre

No matter where you stood on the health care debate that raged in Washington last month, if you were of a certain age, you heard in your head the voice of Jack Sheldon at some point in the procedural discussion. Sheldon, in case the name doesn’t ring a bell, was the singer/musician who provided the vocals for the “Just a Bill” segment of “Schoolhouse Rock.”
Those 1970s shorts, which used to be featured on Saturday morning TV, taught many of us not just about how laws are made, but also what conjunctions and interjections are and why three is a magic number.
These songs form the basis of this musical, which Indianapolis Civic Theatre is using to launch its new young audiences program. Note that that’s “young audiences,” which doesn’t mean kid casts: The actors and technical crew are some of the same grown-up talent you’d find on Civic’s main stage. Details here.

My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
