This Week at Denmark Arts Center

A Fun Weekend Here at DAC...

The summer is high, and the work is long here at the DAC. Play rehearsals have taken the place of (kind of) lazy afternoons and we have Artists in Residence clammering at the doors, waiting to come in. Only one event is planned for this weekend, but it is a big one - and you would be a fool to miss it. Find out why here.
Also, if you're a town dump regular, you would have noticed that the DAC has commissioned two strange Dutch women to pick through your trash and make it into art. Their residency will come to an end every shortly, but it is highly encouraged that you will decide to lend them a helping hand. They will divulge that they require assistance in splitting and cleaning shards of mica. So, if you could donate an hour here or an hour there - they (and we!) would surely appreciate it. Give us a call at (207) 452-2412, and we'll love you forever. Volunteers make a non-profit soar, and we're definitely in need.
Our kid's camps registration has come to a close - because they're all full! Film camp is going wonderfully this week, and Mary Bastoni's much awaited Theater camp is just around the corner.

The gallery is open this weekend, Friday through Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. Come by and see what's hanging on the walls!

See you around at the DAC...

Stories from the Past; Sounds from the Future, w/Jeff Beam & Friends
7:30 pm, $10

Join the DAC for a very special night of rare film and live music, as we welcome celebrated Portland musician Jeff Beam to Denmark for the world premiere of a new DAC commission, Stories from the Past; Sounds from the Future. Working closely with Bucksport’s own Northeast Historic Film archives, Beam has selected a handful of silent-film curiosities from throughout New England around which to build an eclectic songspiel. From scenes of blueberry farming in Hiram, to ice harvesting in Machias, via anonymous family tales on the shores of any old Maine lake, these forgotten historical documents provide the perfect foils for Beam’s elegant, evocative scores and songs. So come on down and see Maine like you’ve never seen it before!
NOTE: This screening will be followed by a panel discussion about representations of Maine, Past & Future.

Wealth? What is it? Why do certain people have it? By Mike Corthell

   What is the first thing we think of when we hear ''They're WEALTHY! Probably we think that they have money and lots of it. But are they completely wealthy? The dictionary defines wealthy as: #1. ''having great wealth, rich affluent.'' But definition #2 says, ''Rich in character, ample...'' 
   By my definition being wealthy also includes having a loving family, lots and lots of friends to love and they love you back. Further, a wealthy life is also a full life. Certain people have great wealth simply because they think abundance all the time. They attract that wealth... 
   They think abundance in ALL things. And as you receive abundantly, give abundantly - in all things good; love, faith, charity and hope - a helping hand - everything good in your life. Give all good things to all people all the time and it will all come back to you, just like a circle. Over and over again.

True wealth is abundance in all that is good. True love is paying it forward forever...

Human Machine, Divine Engineer by Mike Corthell

Good morning my friends.

Walt Whitman said, ''... your very flesh shall be a great poem.''

   Except for mature red blood cells all of the cells that make up our bodies contain DNA. DNA carries all of the information for your physical characteristics plus it has recently been determined - collective memory. 

   The spiral helix is an exquisite storage device and has been considered a model for future organic computer memory.

   Our future on this planet depends on the lessons of our past, mistakes we made but also our successes. Do you wonder were inventions come from, all those foundational ideas from Euclid to da Vinci to Einstein?

   Each of us is a whole universe, containing the knowledge of all there is - its content activated when needed or called upon.

   What does it all mean? God didn't put 'all his eggs in one basket' for one. Another? Your body is the most marvelous machine ever created...and we are all equal in this regard.

   Just something I woke up thinking about on a clear, bright morning in a very beautiful Fryeburg, Maine.

What do you think you can do with your machine today?

A High-Tech Tattoo Can Replace Your Passwords

Motorola's senior vice president of advance research, Regina Dugan, shows off an electronic tattoo at the D11 conference in California. The tattoos, designed by Massachusetts-based firm MC10, are made from silicon and contain electronic circuits that bend and move with the wearer's body. The tattoos, called Biostamps, were designed for medical purposes to track a patient's health, but Motorola thinks the technology can be used for authentication purposes, as an alternative to traditional passwords.

The hi-tech tattoo that could replace ALL your passwords: Motorola reveals plans for ink and even pills to identify us. The Moto X is expected to launch later this year and will be 'more contextually aware than other phones'. The Biostamp electronic tattoo is made of silicon and contains an electrical circuit, antennae and sensors that bend and move with the wearer's body. Proteus Digital Health's 'vitamin authentication pill' is powered by acid in the wearer's stomach and creates an 18-bit signal picked up by mobile phone. Motorola is trialling the technologies as authentication alternatives to non-secure traditional passwords...

This image shows the various parts that make up the MC10 electronic tattoo called the Biostamp. It can be stuck to the body using a rubber stamp, and protected using spray-on bandages. The circuit can be worn for two weeks and Motorola believes this makes it perfect for authentication purposes.

The mobile devices could then be used to confirm the owner's identity and log them in to accounts automatically. 
This would prevent thieves and other people from being able to access a phone, or individual apps on the device, if it is stolen or lost. 
Another idea presented during the keynote talk at the Wall Street Journal conference with head of Motorola Dennis Woodside and senior vice president for advanced technology and products, Regina Dugan, was a swallowable pill. 
The Proteus Digital Health pill has already been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Adminstration and was given European regulatory approval in 2010.

Lakeview Management, Inc. (formerly New Medico) 21 Years of Disservice to Humanity


   The following article appeared in the New York Times. The year? 1992. Very little has changed during these past 21 years. How many patients have suffered during that time? Hundreds? Thousands? How much money has been lost? Money that could have been spent to provide quality patient care. Much of the money lost is your money.

   This article was about the investigation into the business practices of New Medico Health Care Systems. After the investigation of the New Medico facility at 244 Highwatch Rd. in Effingham, New Hampshire. Lakeview Management, Inc. assumed control of the facility. The current administrator, David Armstrong has been working at 244 Highwatch Road for 25 years:

David Armstrong graduated from Perth College of Nursing (Scotland) in 1978. His 15 years of clinical psychiatric nursing included 4 years in a forensic unit. Since coming to America in 1988, Mr. Armstrong has worked for Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation Center. [Previously New Medico] He held the positions of Case Manager, Program Director and Director of Quality Assurance prior to assuming the role of Administrator in 2005. MORE
   He is therefore the bridge between the two Healthcare organizations. You may consider this as inconsequential, but I say that it is telling...

Mike Corthell, Editor & Publisher

''Have you witnessed another human being being neglected or abused? You are required either by state law or your own good conscience to report it to those who we charge with enforcing the law. In New Hampshire call: Call (603) 271-7014 or toll Free from within NH at (800) 949-0470 You can report anonymously if you need to. In other states contact Health and Human Services.''

New York Times 1993: Treating of Severe Brain Injuries Is Profitable, but Not for Patients

In a new and fast-growing field of rehabilitative medicine, many of the nation's health-care centers are being accused of preying on some of the most vulnerable of patients: people with severe brain injuries. In the process, critics say, operators of the centers are reaping millions of dollars in profits from insurance payments....

Critics of the rehabilitation programs are especially vocal about one large for-profit chain, New Medico Health Care Systems, of Lynn, Mass., which operates 36 rehabilitation centers in 15 states.[Including Highwatch in Effingham, New Hampshire, now known as Lakeview] But they say that in addition to New Medico, many other companies are also drawing complaints. Rebound Inc. of Nashville has been accused of falsifying reports to insurance companies, and Total Therapy Management of Troy, Mich., has been accused by families of overbilling. All three companies denied the criticisms and insisted that they have high standards and provide excellent care. Any lapses that may have occurred, they said, have been corrected. Hundreds of Complaints...

The following are among the hundreds of allegations involving many for-profit head-injury centers, according to Government investigators:
*Unethical marketing that includes lying to the families of people suffering recent brain injuries, and pressure tactics to gain access to hospital records of patients with substantial insurance.
*Bad care. Parents who said they were promised intensive therapy report finding quadriplegic children unattended, having lain for hours or days in vomit or feces. Others said their children's condition seriously deteriorated from neglect.
*Expensive rehabilitation programs that admit and keep patients who cannot benefit from them, simply to garner insurance payments. One researcher found that for an average nine-month stay, patients were charged $106,000 for treatment not justified by the results. Patients released after less than six months did just as well, the researcher found.
*Companies instructing medical staff members to file false or misleading reports of patient progress to insurance companies, to keep patients in their programs until insurance coverage was exhausted. Robert E. Brabham, executive director of the National Association of Rehabilitation Facilities, an industry trade group, said the complaints represented only a small percentage of head-injury facilities.
