Slouchers of the World, Unite!

Before I begin talking about this new, high-tech invention called the Lumo Lift, I must explain my affliction — an affliction that has haunted me most of my adult life, one that I've never been able to escape.

I'm a chronic sloucher. I don't know how it happened, I don't know how I got this way, but somewhere, probably in grade school, my body began to form a letter "S" when seen in profile. I blame my height —...

Rabbi Azriel’s neighborhood welcomes all, unlike what he saw on recent Middle East trip

Rabbi Aryeh Azriel of Omaha's Temple Israel Synagogue builds bridges between people of different backgrounds and persuasions. Take for example his driving force work with the Tri-Faith Initiative, the project that intends creating a local campus of Jewish, Muslim and Christian houses of worship around a shared communal space. 

Recently returned from a two-month sabbatical to Turkey and his native Israel, Azriel was...

Paying to Play… at the Superbowl

Teacher’s Secret Kindness Agents project now a book

When the 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy happened Ferial Pearson searched for answers and hope. Her bullied young son provided both when he revealed being comforted by her felt better than staying mad. 

That got Pearson, an award-winning local educator, thinking bullying and violence might be avoided through kindness. On Pinterest she found an envelope labeled "random act of kindness assignment." That led her in 2013 to...

Review: Maha 2014 an Exhausting Success

When the Maha Music Festival organizers announced that this year's headliner was going to be Death Cab for Cutie, I was relieved. Maha has a tradition of booking the most boring act of its annual day-long concert to play last, and this year appeared to be no exception.

Last year it was Flaming Lips, whose black-confetti strobe-light-mountain visual spectacle was absorbed in the first five minutes of the set,...

Fashion Week stakes tent for runway couture

Omaha Fashion Week, the Midwest couture festival that pops up twice a year in the most unexpected places, is one of those signifier events that confirms this isn't your parents' city anymore. 

It has returned to the much ballyhooed but sill largely undeveloped Capitol District after being there last year. If the 10th Street and Capitol Avenue location doesn't ring a bell, just look for stern looking models in high...

Maha: The Head Versus the Heart

On the eve of yet another Maha Music Festival, it's time to consider the future of "the summer music festival" in general.

Certainly Maha organizer Tre Brashear is thinking about it. Last week, Brashear sent folks in the local media a link to an article that appeared on wonderingsound.com called, "Why the Summer Music Festival Bubble is About to Burst." In the lengthy examination, author Grayson Haver Currin...
