Diesel’s ad campaign: Make love not walls

Have you seen Diesel’s new ad campaign, Make Love Not Walls? The campaign launched on Valentine’s Day is all about tearing down the mental and physical walls that separate us so we can come together in the name of unity and love. Much thanks to Sergio for sharing this with me.

Massachusetts ranked 1st in well being study

massachusettsGDP alone does not offer a complete picture of a country’s performance. The well-being of citizens is an important measure too. With that in mind, the professional services firm, BCG, ranked each of the 50 states, and the New England region out performed the rest of the country. Three of the top five states come from New England with Massachusetts achieving the best overall rating followed by New Hampshire (second best) and Vermont (fourth best).

Massachusetts, the number one state overall, was ranked 1st in investments, 11th in economics, and 19th in sustainability, but the state does have challenges. The report cited: an aging population, high cost of living and a school achievement gap between white and black students as areas to focus on for improvement.

In addition to the state’s investments, Massachusetts received high marks for:

Health: The state has the best access to primary care; lowest infant mortality rate in the nation; the third lowest obesity rate; and fifth highest life-expectancy.

Education: MA ranked high in education, pre-school enrollment and has the highest proportion of people with college degrees in the country.

Economics: MA ranked 11th overall, with the third-highest GDP per capita; third-lowest poverty rate among the most populous states; and low unemployment, which currently stands at 2.8% (nationally the rate is 4.8%).

The Night of the Iguana opens tonight

theater, Tennessee Williams, American Repertory Theater, A.R.T.It is opening night at the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) for the Tennessee Williams play, The Night of the Iguana. The stage play premiered on Broadway in 1961 and was an Academy Award winning film in 1964 directed by John Huston, starring Richard Burton, Ava Garnder and Deborah Kerr.

For this production the A.R.T. has pulled out some big name actors. The show is directed by Michael Wilson and the cast includes: James Earl Jones, Bill Heck, Dana Delany, Amanda Plummer, Elizabeth Ashley and Remo Airaldi.

Williams drama shows us how far people are willing to go to outrun their demons. The 1961 drama takes place on the edge of the Mexican jungle with a group of troubled travelers seeking shelter from a storm. It revolves around a hotel proprietress and a scandal-soaked Southern preacher, a Nantucket portrait artist traveling with her grandfather, a bus full of fuming Texan college administrators, and vacationers. I can’t wait to see this show.
