Artistic Entrepreneurship & Technology 101: Dr. E's 2005 Introduction http://artsentreprneurship.com http://herosjourneyentrepreneurship.org Rock On Artistic Entrepreneurs!!!!!!!!!!! Dr. Elliot McGucken launched Artistic Entrepreneurship & Technology 101 at UNC Chapel Hill in the spring of 2006. Here is a video he produced in 2005 for the first class. The Triangle Business Journal reported on Dr. E's New Class: Arts Entrepreneurship & Technology 101 on 9/12/2005: http://triangle.bizjournals.com/triangle/stories/2005/09/12/tidbits1.html?page=2 "What do you get when you combine an interest in the arts with an interest in entrepreneurial ventures and an interest in cutting-edge technology? Dr. Elliot McGucken at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill says the result is someone he calls an artistic entrepreneur. Thus, he's received a grant from the Carolina Entrepreneurial Initiative to launch a class called Artistic Entrepreneurship. Known as "Dr. E" to his students, McGucken teaches physics and programming and has published a poetry book, a novel, a collection of essays, several scientific articles and - huh? - poetry in The Wall Street Journal. Since 1995, he's run an online site called jollyroger.com that pays homage to the "Great Books" and serves as a forum for those who worship excellence in literature. "It'd be great to build a couple hip artistic ventures in our own backyard," McGucken tells Biz. "Why let New York and L.A. have all the fun?"

Helene Cooper is "Congo," a descendant of two Liberian dynasties -- traced back to the first ship of freemen that set sail from New York in 1820 to found Monrovia. Helene grew up at Sugar Beach, a twenty-two-room mansion by the sea. Her childhood was filled with servants, flashy cars, a villa in Spain, and a farmhouse up-country. It was also an African childhood, filled with knock foot games and hot pepper soup, heartmen and neegee. When Helene was eight, the Coopers took in a foster child -- a common custom among the Liberian elite. Eunice, a Bassa girl, suddenly became known as "Mrs. Cooper's daughter." For years the Cooper daughters -- Helene, her sister Marlene, and Eunice -- blissfully enjoyed the trappings of wealth and advantage. But Liberia was like an unwatched pot of water left boiling on the stove. And on April 12, 1980, a group of soldiers staged a coup d'état, assassinating President William Tolbert and executing his cabinet. The Coopers and the entire Congo class were now the hunted, being imprisoned, shot, tortured, and raped. After a brutal daylight attack by a ragtag crew of soldiers, Helene, Marlene, and their mother fled Sugar Beach, and then Liberia, for America. They left Eunice behind. A world away, Helene tried to assimilate as an American teenager. At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill she found her passion in journalism, eventually becoming a reporter for the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. She reported from every part of the globe -- except Africa -- as Liberia descended into war-torn, third-world hell. In 2003, a near-death experience in Iraq convinced Helene that Liberia -- and Eunice -- could wait no longer. At once a deeply personal memoir and an examination of a violent and stratified country, The House at Sugar Beach tells of tragedy, forgiveness, and transcendence with unflinching honesty and a survivor's gentle humor. And at its heart, it is a story of Helene Cooper's long voyage home.

Michael Jeffrey Jordan (born February 17, 1963) is a retired American professional basketball player and active businessman. His biography on the National Basketball Association (NBA) website states, "By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time."[1] Jordan was one of the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation and was instrumental in popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s. After a stand-out career at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he led the Tar Heels to a National Championship in 1982, Jordan joined the NBA's Chicago Bulls in 1984. He quickly emerged as one of the stars of the league, entertaining crowds with his prolific scoring. His leaping ability, illustrated by performing slam dunks from the free throw line at Slam Dunk Contests, earned him the nicknames "Air Jordan" and "His Airness." He also gained a reputation as one of the best defensive players in basketball.[2] In 1991, he won his first NBA championship with the Bulls, and followed that achievement with titles in 1992 and 1993, securing a "three-peat." Though Jordan abruptly retired from basketball at the beginning of the 1993-94 NBA season to pursue a career in baseball, he rejoined the Bulls in 1995 and led them to three additional championships (1996, 1997, and 1998) as well as an NBA-record 72 regular-season wins in the 1995–96 season. Jordan retired for a second time in 1999, but he returned for two more NBA seasons in 2001 as a member of the Washington Wizards. Jordan's individual accolades and accomplishments include five MVP awards, ten All-NBA First Team designations, nine All-Defensive First Team honors, fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances and three All-Star MVP awards, ten scoring titles, three steals titles, six NBA Finals MVP awards, and the 1988 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award. He holds the NBA record for highest career regular season scoring average with 30.12 points per game, as well as averaging a record 33.4 points per game in the playoffs. In 1999, he was named the greatest North American athlete of the 20th century by ESPN, and was second to Babe Ruth on the Associated Press's list of athletes of the century. He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame on April 6, 2009 and will be inducted in September 2009.[3] Jordan is also noted for his product endorsements. He fueled the success of Nike's Air Jordan sneakers, which were introduced in 1985 and remain popular today.[4] Jordan also starred in the 1996 feature film Space Jam. He is currently a part-owner and Managing Member of Basketball Operations of the Charlotte Bobcats in North Carolina.

michael jordan hall of fame induction New Delhi, Sept 12, 2009: Michael Jordan Hall of Fame speech was very emotional. The greatest basketball player of all time Michael Jackson became very emotional when he was given a very long standing ovation by a cheering crowd. It was a moment that made the legend emotional and for the next more than twenty minutes he thanked everyone. The occasion was his induction into the Hall of Fame. Everyone knew long before his induction was announced earlier this year that he will be inducted in it sooner than later. His soaring dunks, Nike commercials and "Air Jordan" nickname helped stamp him as one the most recognizable athletes around the world. He finished a 15-year career with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards with 32,292 points — the third-highest total in league history, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone. His final career average of 30.12 goes down as the best, just ahead of Wilt Chamberlain's 30.07. He has been eulogized not just by admirers but also his teammates as well. One of his teammates John Paxon says about him, "Simply the greatest to ever play the game of basketball. He is the one player that each young person in this league should emulate and aspire to become. His work ethic, drive, skill level and competitive spirit were unmatched”. Forty six year old Michael Jeffrey Jordan is an American icon, a retired American professional basketball player and active businessman.

On the occasion Jordan thanked everyone who pushed him to greater heights: The coach at Laney High who picked Leroy Smith over him for the varsity team ("You made a mistake, dude," Jordan said). Buzz Peterson, his former roommate at North Carolina who was named high school state player of the year instead of him. His college coach, Dean Smith, who refused to name Jordan as a starter as a freshman before Sports Illustrated magazine put the other four Tar Heels starters on the cover in 1981 ("That burned me up," he said). He said, "The players win championships. Don't try to put the organization before the players because at the end of the day, the players have to go out and perform. You guys got to pay us". While speaking to his children he said, "You guys have had a heavy burden. I wouldn't want to be you guys," Jordan said with a laugh.

From North Carolina According to a report published in the journal Nature, scientists from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have decoded the structure of an HIV genome. Using novel techniques, researchers were able to produce images of the entire genome, in contrast with earlier studies that were only able to understand small regions of the HIV RNA. These results could potentially help scientists develop new anti-viral drugs to combat HIV. From New York Brain stimulation exercises may help to delay memory decline in older adults, according to a report published in the journal Neurology. Researchers studied nearly 500 people aged 75-85, detailing how frequently they took part in activities such as crossword puzzles, reading/writing, playing musical instruments, playing cards/board games, and participating in group discussions. Results showed that if an individual participated in 11 activities per week in comparison to an individual who only participated in four, dementia related memory decline was delayed 1.29 years. And finally, from Fresno Beef Packers Inc., of Fresno, California, is recalling over 825, 000 lbs of ground beef products due to concerns of salmonella contamination. The beef, which had been sold to retail distribution centers and then repackaged and sold under several different retail names, was produced between June 5 and June 23, 2009. Salmonella is potentially life threatening for those with already weakened immune systems.

Curtiss, Allegra Clegg, Charles Newirth, Devorah Moos-Hankin, Marsha Garces Williams, Marvin Minoff, Mike Farrell, Steve Oedekerk, Tom Shadyac Screenwriter: Maureen Mylander, Patch Adams, Steve Oedekerk Film Description: Patch Adams is a 1998 comedy-drama film starring Robin Williams. Directed by Tom Shadyac, it tells the true life story of Dr. Hunter "Patch" Adams and the book Gesundheit: Good Health is a Laughing Matter by Adams and Maureen Mylander. The film is generally considered a box-office success, grossing over twice its budget in the United States alone. However, it was poorly received by most critics. Plot: The film tells the story of Hunter "Patch" Adams (Williams), a medical doctor who became famous for his unconventional approach to medicine. After attempting suicide, he checks himself into a mental institution, where he gradually bonds with his fellow patients. During this time he is inspired to become a medical doctor, and discovers that he is able to forget his own problems by helping others. Two years later, he enrolls at Virginia Medical University (a fictitious school shot at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus) and he is the oldest first year student. He questions the school's approach to medical care, and clashes with the school's Dean Walcott (Bob Gunton), who believes that doctors must distance themselves from patients. Because of this and other incidents, including a prank during a medical conference, he is expelled from the school, although he is later reinstated. Adams develops a relationship with a fellow student, Carin Fisher (Monica Potter), and develops his idea for a medical clinic built around his philosophy of treating patients through humor and compassion. With the help of Arthur Mendelson (Harold Gould), a wealthy man who was a patient whom Patch met while in the mental hospital, he purchases 105 acres (425,000 m²) in West Virginia to construct the future Gesundheit! Institute. Together with Corin, medical student Truman Schiff (Daniel London), and some old friends, he renovates an old cottage. When they get the clinic running, they treat walk-in patients without medical insurance, Patch performs comedy sketches for the patients, such as wearing thick glasses and pretending to be near-sighted. Corin is fascinated by Patch's talent, and their friendship turns into romance. She reveals to him that she had been molested as a child and had always wanted to become a butterfly to escape her torment; Patch reassures her that she can overcome her pain to help others. More encouraged than ever by Patch and his spirit, Corin wants to help a disturbed patient, Lawrence "Larry" Silver (Douglas Roberts), by visiting him at home. Larry turns out to be far more disturbed than anybody had expected, and he murders her, turning the shotgun on himself soon after. Patch is devastated and guilt-ridden by Corin's death, reconsiders his outlook, and questions the goodness of humanity. He contemplates suicide, but tells God that Heaven is "not worth it" and turns to see a butterfly. He then realizes how Corin mentioned to him that she always wanted to be a butterfly, and decides to continue his work in her honor. Dismissed from the school for a second time because he ran a clinic and practiced medicine without a license, he files a grievance with the state medical board at the advice of his former med school roommate, Mitch Roman (Philip Seymour Hoffman), and must attend a hearing where it is decided whether he can graduate. Patch is able to convince the board in a final speech that he did his best to help the people that came to him, stating that treating a disease of the body is a win-or-lose situation, but treating a person's spirit guarantees a win regardless of the outcome. He encourages medical students to cultivate relationships with nurses and learn their interviewing skills early, and argues that death should be treated with dignity and even humor. In the end the jury accepts Patch's medical methods and decides to allow him to graduate. He receives a standing ovation from the packed hearing room. Even at graduation, Patch cannot help but be a non-conformist. After handing Adams a diploma, Wolcott...
