Every one of us had a dream job when we were young. Think about how many times you were asked by your parents “what do you want to be when you grow up?” Personally I always wanted to be either a professional baseball player or a vet. Unfortunately I did not possess the skills to excel in either career. Never once growing up did I think about a career in marketing. My passion for that career path came much later in life. While many teens dream of professions in music, sports, and fashion design, research shows that most teens will eventually have to give up their dream job aspirations to take less glamourous jobs. New research shows a wide disparity between the jobs teens want and the jobs available. A new study by C+R Research found that 20 percent of teens want one of the 15 jobs that make up just one percent of the American workforce (think: musicians, athletes, video game designers, etc.

Few filmmakers of this century or the last have shown more outright love for oddballs than Jonathan Demme , who died on April 26 at age 73. It should hurt less, somehow, to lose a director who had a career as long, rich and varied as Demmes was. But it doesn't. Demme got his start as a member of schlock impresario Roger Cormans stable. His 1974 Caged Heat , fierce, funny and go-for-broke crazy, is one of the most pleasurable entries in the women-in-prison canon. He found explosive mainstream success with The Silence of the Lambs , in 1991, a grisly crime thriller made with an artists touch. In later years, he made loose-limbed, intelligent indies (2008s Rachel Getting Married ) and probing, cerebral theatrical explorations (2013s A Master Builder ). He was adept at music videos (he made superb ones for New Order and Bruce Springsteen, among others) and had a special gift for constructing documentaries about performers of all kinds, particularly musicians (most recently reveling in the enigmatic energy of Neil Young).

He denounced Trump’s dismissals of facts: “Any argument that 2 and 2 equals 5 is not an ‘alternate fact.’ It’s untrue. Water does not run uphill. Gravity exists. It’s a truth.” Rather was met with roars of approval. The last time people were paying this much attention to Rather, he was at the center of his own blowup over fake news. More than a decade ago, Rather was ousted from CBS in the wake of a flawed investigation into President George W. Bush’s National Guard duty during the Vietnam War. Rather’s downfall after 24 years as the face of the network was a cause for celebration on the right and quiet discomfort on the left. Instead of retiring, though, the man who was the heir to Walter Cronkite and was watched at his peak by 18 million people every night took a job with HDNet, a low-profile cable outlet owned by Mark Cuban now called AXS TV, toiling in relative obscurity hosting a news show and interviewing musicians.

Teachers receive special training, and the arts are incorporated into all the subjects.Turnaround Arts schools also partner with professional musicians and actors who work with the students. Among the names are Yo-Yo Ma, Sarah Jessica Parker, Elton John and Cameron Diaz. “The children were so excited and have been so excited because it’s not just about – “Go to the board. Do the problem. Turn the page. Read the book.'It’s about acting and impersonating artists and historic figures, and acting out the water cycle and becoming a butterfly that goes from caterpillar through the cocoon to an expansive beautiful winged insect,” said Long. On Thursdays, dedicated teachers in music and art give lessons. “Art is fun. You get to draw what you draw and you get to draw something that you really like,” said an excited Driakare. Only in the first year of a 3-year program, Long is already seeing results.

It was while performing onstage at New Yorks famed Gotham Comedy Club that Dave Scott realized comedy was more than just toughit was bad business. The former CEO of Marketfish, a VC-backed data management platform startup, always wanted to pursue his passion of comedy. After selling his company in 2013, he did just that. Scott left Silicon Valley to try his hand in the late-night club circuit in Manhattan. It was funhe found himself touring with Janeane Garofalo and hanging with Amy Schumer (before she got huge, he clarifies)but he wasnt making any money. If youre a comedian, expect to be at this for five or 10 years before you become [successful], says Scott. Until then, its really harshthe distribution method that exists for musicians dont exist for comedians.
