In this talk Mallika explains that intents are much different from goals, as a goal is mind orientated and revolves around tasks, while intents come from our soul, and represent our deepest desires - they define who we want to be. Mallika is a mom, media entrepreneur, and author of Living with Intent: My Somewhat Messy Journey to Purpose, Peace and Joy.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mallika is also the founder of Intent.com, a website focused on personal, social and global wellness. Her intent is to harness the power of social media to connect people from around the world to improve their own lives, their communities and our planet. Mallika learned about the power of intention at a young age from her father, who taught her to ask for love, hope, purpose, passion, inspiration on a daily basis.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Please join us for an excellent talk about all of our futures.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">A discussion will take place after the lecture.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 25 Jan 2020 00:00:00 GMT Jan 26 - "Dead Reckoning" w/Tom Celandine http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=86780 <p><img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/lgDead_Reckoning.PNG" style="display: block;margin:0 auto 0 auto; text-align:center;" /></p> Sun, 26 Jan 2020 00:00:00 GMT Jan 26 - Winter Film Screenings, Hosted by Tom Celandine http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=86837 <p><img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/lgWinter_2020_film_screenings.PNG" style="display: block;margin:0 auto 0 auto; text-align:center;" /></p> Sun, 26 Jan 2020 00:00:00 GMT Jan 27 - Ocean City Jazz Collective Series 2020 http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=86355 <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/lgCollective_1.PNG" style="display: block;margin:0 auto 0 auto; text-align:center;" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Saxophonist Michael Pedicin, in collaboration with the South Jersey Jazz Society, will present an innovative jazz series on the following Monday evenings at 6:00 p.m.:&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>&nbsp;January 27th&nbsp; &nbsp; February 3rd&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;February 24th&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;March 23rd&nbsp; &nbsp; March 30th&nbsp; &nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">The evenings will feature the Michael Pedicin Quartet for the first hour,&nbsp;<strong>6:00-7:00 p.m.</strong>&nbsp;For the second hour, Michael will welcome other musicians, i.e., friends, students, etc. to join the quartet between&nbsp;<strong>7:00 -8:00 p.m.</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;There will be a sign-in sheet located at the entrance to the Chris Maloney Lecture Hall so that those musicians coming to play can make Michael and his group aware of who and how many folks want to join in for the second hour&rsquo;s JAM SESSION.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">This will be a fun and creative way to bring in 2020, as we offer the opportunity to share, play and improvise with a professional quartet of Jazz musicians in Michael&rsquo;s Quartet, featuring Andy Lalasis, bass; Bob Shomo, drums (2/3, 2/24, 3/23 and 30); Keith Hollis, drums (1/27); Frank Strauss, piano.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">All concerts are&nbsp;<strong>FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!</strong>&nbsp;No registration or tickets required.

African composers who are mostly trained in the Western tradition of classical music, take advantage of their bi-cultural and bi-musical backgrounds to compose piano works of distinctive quality that exude traits of interconnections across cultures. Hence, basic and complex rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic idioms of indigenous musical forms are often taken as materials for composing piano music. Over the years, scholars, composers and performers alike, have continued in this tradition, while expanding the limits of theories and performance practices on African Pianism.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /> <strong>SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2020&nbsp; &nbsp;2PM</strong><br /> &nbsp;<br /> THIS LECTURE IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.<br /> Echezonachukwu Nduka is a pianist, poet, and music scholar currently living in Mays Landing.
