What is going on in your part of the world?

Summer has reached us here in Pasadena, California and today is the annual  Make Music Pasadena Festival- it’s a free music festival, with hundreds of amateur musicians performing in all sorts of interesting spaces while internationally known artists perform on two main stages.  Hearing so many new sounds from such a wide array of musicians is my favorite summer treat.  Click here to read about it. 

We’d love to know  what special events happen during the summer months (or June, July and August) where you live- reply here and introduce yourself on this blog and let’s start sharing!


About President Shai Reshef

Starting in 1989, Shai Reshef served as chairman of the Kidum Group, a test preparation company, which he sold in 2005 to Kaplan, one of the world’s largest education companies. While chairman of Kidum, he built an online university affiliated with the University of Liverpool, enrolling students from more than 100 countries; that business was sold to Laureate, another large for-profit education company, in 2004. A vessel for universal higher education, UoPeople has the enormous potential to function as a global stimulus package, reaching even the most remote and poorest places on earth. Our ultimate mission is to democratize higher education and, if the past two years are any indication, this is not merely a pipe dream.

    Here in Brazil we are under a lot of clothes because we just got into winter time. The city where I live is very high and the temperature has reached 23 last week.
    Great for a cheese fondue, a soup and a good and warm bed.
    Our Valentine’s day was last month and in July begins a middle term school vacation, what is great because a lot of people take a break and come here to seize the cool air of the mountains.
    I was planning a trip to the neighbour country, Argentina, but the news aren’t quite good about the flu. A lot of people are giving up or postponing their plans.
    So… That’s all.
