Alan Vega, Just a Million Dreams

Alan Vega, Just a Million Dreams

Alan Vega, Just a Million Dreams

This intimate portrait will reveal uncommon stories of groundbreaking visual artist and pioneer of minimalist electronic rock, Alan Vega, vocalist and composer for 1970s and 80s punk/post punk duo Suicide. Alan plays with the camera and enjoys the friendship of filmmaker Losier, while also loving, fighting and living with his family—Liz Lamere, his wife and collaborator, and their son Dante, young replica of Alan. Traces of joy, eccentricity, illumination but also deep fatigue and slow Suicide.  The rock-n-roll Alan is still very alive, funny and rebellious!

Foods To Fight Against Dyslexia

If you or someone you know suffers from dyslexia, I recommend you read the materials we have in store for you and get the tools we have listed here. Today we took the time to create a brief guide with the food that are most recommended to fight against dyslexia. Brain food is the generic name given to certain foods that are considered to be helpful for children suffering form learning problems, dyslexia included. Behavioral problems are also thought to be better controlled with the help of certain types of foods we will shortly discuss within the next lines. 

 

The Importance Of Smart Fats

Even though there are studies indicating that genetic predispositions to the poor absorption of essential fatty acids leading to brain and eye-related problems does exist, there are scientists who have a different take. Namely, there are physicians and nutritionists who believe that fatty acid supplements are compensating for the stress induced or genetic issues keeping some children from accurately absorbing the smart fats.

We can mention eggs, sunflower corn, fish, or walnuts on the list of foods containing important amounts of fatty acids. The connection between dyslexia and other attention deficit related disorders and smart acids has been proven by scientists. Defects in the genes of some children might eventually cause them such problems like the ones previously mentioned, dyslexia included. The discovery could also provide further proof why dyslexia is a condition that seems to run in the families of the affected youth. The improper processing of these fatty acids in patients suffering from dyslexia has been proven with the help of brain scans. The scans indicated abnormal processing signals inside the brain when children had to process fatty acids. These abnormal brain activities were then connected to the reading and writing problems that are specific to these children.

 

Fatty Acids Supplements Improve Brain Cell Functions

Providing children with the necessary fatty acid supplements will improve the functioning of the cells inside their brains. It will also cause composition improvements in the same body area. An important study performed on 15 children aged 6 or 12 who were suffering from dyslexia showed a general improvement in their coordination skills. The coordination skills of the subjects were also affected by their illness, and the study carried out for four months showed significant results. Chidden had fatty acids added to their regular diets and at the end of the four months of study, scientists discovered an overall improvement in their coordination, namely, they managed to catch the ball easier. Extraordinary improvements have been recorded in some patients, while other responded more moderate. Certain social difficulties characteristic to dyslexia were also improved with the help of smart acids. Further research is needed, but the future is hopefully looking good.

Macy’s Herald Square • Windows along 34th Street and 7th Avenue

New York, New York, August 27, 2009 –This fall, Macy’s Herald Square will celebrate today’s most groundbreaking artists as part of FIAF’s Crossing the Line festival and Macy’s Art Under Glass, a seasonal art series taking place in the windows lining their legendary flagship store. The featured works will be on display from September 8-27, offering unprecedented exposure to burgeoning talent as FIAF’s Crossing the Line 2009 festival gets underway.

A collaborative celebration of culture and fashion, the Crossing the Line sidewalk art gallery will spotlight the contemporary works of vibrant and international artists, against a bold background of fall fashion featuring Macy’s new and exclusive Rachel Rachel Roy collection, among others. The exhibit is being co-curated by Julie Boukobza, along with Crossing the Line’s Lili Chopra and Simon Dove.

“A seductively HYBRID space, between white cubes and the streets of New York City, the windows for Macy’s ‘Art Under Glass’ tend to reflect the concerns of our times,” said co-curator Boukobza. “The show is populated with flags, iconic figures, Dodger’s quotes, a countdown clock, and Michael Jackson hands, showcasing Macy’s both as a landmark of the American dream and its own interrogation. The mostly New York City-based artists featured allow the public to take a step back from their daily routines.”

“Macy’s offers artists unprecedented exposure, with over 7,000 people passing these legendary windows every hour,” said Lili Chopra, Artistic Director of FIAF. “These installations will certainly cause them to pause for thought,” added Simon Dove, Crossing the Line co-curator.

“The works from Crossing the Line set a unique mood for this season’s fashions, and visually bring to life the cooperation and co-existence between art and fashion,” said Nicole Fischelis, GVP, Fashion Director of RTW for Macy’s. Adds Paul Olszewski, Director of Windows for Macy’s Herald Square, “Our windows not only display fashion trends but also take on new meaning when they are used as a public space for satellite exhibits.”
