    Three refreshing sangrias arrive just in time for a feels-like-summer afternoon on the patio at Cantina Laredo. Try the brand-new Pineapple Spice Sangria, or cozy up with a couple of old favorites back for a limited time, the White Honey and Blood Orange sangrias.

    The Pineapple Spice Sangria is an invigorating combination of Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling, caramelized pineapple, club soda and Tanteo jalapeño tequila for a spicy kick. The White Honey Sangria is a refreshing combination of Ecco Domani Mosacto, Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur, Bärenjäger Honey Liqueur, fresh lemon and lime juices and fresh-squeezed orange.

    Or, try the Blood Orange Sangria, a lovely mix of Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, Burgundy, orange juice and ginger beer.

    A Stanford University study revealed a person's success in life can be predicted by the way he or she answers the question "Are you willing to get up and make a presentation right now?" We communicate all day, every day. Effective presentation skills, whether one-on-one or to groups, rank high on the lists of qualities identified for success in the workplace. Yet, in spite of the strong awareness we seem to have for the importance of presentation skills, the average person does not present well. Moreover, as technology advances and becomes easier to use, people often find face-to-face presentations more difficult. As a result, presentations fail, opportunities are lost, relationships suffer and business results fall short of goals.

    80% of the people who fail at work do so because they do not relate well to others. In a business environment that has never been more competitive, research shows that success depends about six times more on the ability to communicate effectively than it does on technical skills. It's not that we don't receive training in communication and presentation skills. For our entire lifetimes, most of us have received a steady diet of anti-communication skills training. From well-intentioned teachers to well-intentioned managers and co-workers, who themselves have been taught ineffective methods of communicating and presenting, each passes on their (lack of) skill in this area. Role models of effective communications and presentations are scarce.

    During this presentation skills program you'll gain skills to:

    • Discover how you are perceived by others.
    • Recognize the verbal and non-verbal messages you send.
    • Learn the secrets about body language.
    • Incorporate the most recent, relevant research to add IMPACT when presenting.
    • Conquer fear and prevent nervousness from affecting delivery.
    • Master the physical skills that convey confidence and conviction to your audience.
    • Organize and visualize material so listeners understand and retain more.
    • Use different learning styles to customize presentations to specific audiences.
    • Think clearly under pressure and handle difficult questions and situations.

  • 05/22/13--07:13: New Doctor in the House!
  • Celerion is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Bruce Morimoto as Executive Director of Applied Translational Medicine. Dr. Morimoto will have responsibility for developing and implementing strategies for patient populations in early clinical research and clinical pharmacology studies. Dr. Morimoto will also assume leadership for the External Studies Management and Clinical Monitoring Services teams.

    The appointment of Dr. Morimoto reinforces Celerion's focus on delivering Applied Translational Medicine. Celerion is focused on applying our expertise and experience to translating information gained in research discoveries, to knowledge of drug action and effect in humans to support early drug development decisions and the clinical pharmacology labeling of new medicines.

    Dr. Morimoto comes to Celerion with over 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries as well as in contract research organizations (CRO). Prior to joining Celerion, he was Vice President of Drug Development at Allon Therapeutics, where his focus was to manage their neurodegeneration and dementia therapeutic programs including preclinical, manufacturing and clinical development. Dr. Morimoto also held positions at MDS Pharma Services, a full service CRO; Neuromed Technologies, a biotech company developing novel pain therapeutics; Phoenix International Life Sciences, a global CRO; and Amur Pharmaceuticals, a biopharmaceutical company focused on diabetes and drug delivery research.

    Dr. Morimoto's hands-on drug development experience that includes program, project and portfolio management, combined with an understanding of the CRO industry, provides him with invaluable insight into how best to tackle the inclusion of patients in both clinical pharmacology as well as Phase IIa Proof-of-Concept studies.

    "We are very pleased to have Bruce join the Drug Development Services team at Celerion," said Susan Thornton Ph.D, President and CEO of Celerion. "His in-depth knowledge of drug development as well as focus on Applied Translational Medicine from both the client and CRO perspective will be a great asset to our organization."

    Dr. Morimoto earned his doctorate in biochemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), completed post doctorate research at University of California, Berkeley, and was also on the faculty in the Chemistry department at Purdue University.

    Did you know that you can have a full-time IT support team for much less than you realize? Now, before you report us for a Labor Law violation, for paying only $2.18 per hour, let us explain. The title is a bit misleading. It's not really for one employee; it's for our entire team! Run Networks provides IT Managed Services for small businesses at a fraction of the cost of staffing their own IT personnel.

    Omaha Performing Arts, NET Television and Hear Nebraska present Hear Nebraska Live at the 1200 CLUB inside the Holland Performing Arts Center Friday, June 7, at 7:30 p.m. The performance features three Nebraska-based indie bands playing in the intimate Scott Recital Hall. NET Television, Hear Nebraska and Omaha Performing Arts are collaborating to three bands - Kill County, Big Harp and Digital Leather - each with distinctive sounds. NET Television will record all three performances for later broadcast statewide and offered nationally to public television stations. The synth punk band Digital Leather is led by frontman Shawn Foree, who is backed by a trio who are no strangers to the Omaha music scene: The Faint's Todd Fink on the keyboard, bassist Johnny Vredenburg and drummer Jeff Lambelet. Chris Senseney and Stefanie Drootin-Senseney (The Good Life, Bright Eyes, She & Him) make up Big Harp. The darkly humorous folk-rock duo formed in December 2010. They've released two albums through Saddle Creek Records. Big Harp was part of the SXSW 2013 Saddle Creek Records showcase, and has a sound that's been compared to Townes Van Zandt, M. Ward and Nick Cave. The five Nebraska natives that make up Kill County - Ringo, Josh James, Jon Augustine, Brad Kindler and Joe Salvati - are spread out around the country and the world (Kindler spent some time in Malawi with the Peace Corps). The remote collaboration works well for the band, whose songs reflect the spontaneity when everyone manages to unite to perform together. Their music is inspired by America's working class, and Heartland landscapes, history and geography are woven into their lyrics. Tickets are on sale now for Hear Nebraska Live at the 1200 CLUB at TicketOmaha.com, by calling 402.345.0606 or at the Ticket Omaha office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center, 13th & Douglas streets. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 day of show.

    Omaha Performing Arts presents The Fifty Shades Parody for three performances on Thursday, June 13, at 7:30 p.m.; and Friday, June 14, and Saturday, June 15, at 8:00 p.m. in the Orpheum Theater.

    The musical comedy parody is part of the Omaha Performing Arts' 2012/2013 Season. Omaha audiences are about to get spanked by the new comedy that puts a hilarious spin on the saucy book that caused a world sensation.

    Since its premiere in October 2012, SPANK! has become a huge box office hit with tour dates in more than 70 cities across the United States and Canada.

    Tickets start at $40. Tickets can be purchased online at TicketOmaha.com, by phone at 402.345.0606, or at the Ticket Omaha office in the Holland Performing Arts Center, 13th and Douglas streets. Only the orchestra level of the Orpheum Theater will be open for sale for this production.
