Extractions: $4.6 million settlement for removal of healthy kidney A Cook County judge approved a $4.6 million settlement for a man whose healthy kidney was inadvertently removed along with a diseased one. The man was subsequently put on a regimen of dialysis treatments and the next year received a transplant from his wife to replace the functioning kidney that was removed. Plaintiffs argued that doctors failed to diagnose horseshoe kidney, a condition in which the kidneys are joined, leading to the removal of healthy tissue that should have been retained. ( Chicago Daily Law Bulletin February 19, 2002) Discrimination suit settled for $31 million American Express Co. has agreed to a $31 million settlement of a sex and age discrimination suit filed by 17 women who say they were unfairly denied promotions and pay. The deal has to be approved by a federal judge and would also require American Express Financial Advisors Inc. to begin mandatory diversity training and install a diversity officer. It also requires the firm to make sure that 32 percent of new hires for its financial advisor team are women. Four women originally filed the suit and were joined by 13 more. More than 4,000 women would qualify for benefits from the settlement. ( AP February 22, 2002)

Here He found an unlimited source of inspiration; he just couldn't get enough! On Tony's sixteenth birthday, he received a return phone call from Jimmy Smith. This was a great honor and really boosted his enthusiasm as an organist. Jimmy Smith continued to give Tony Jazz Organ secrets over the phone while Tony was playing around Columbus. When he was twenty, Jimmy Smith invited Tony to come play with him at his club in Woodland Hills L.A., California.

Extractions: Union College Concert Series, Schenectady, NY Performers: Concertante (Xiao-Dong Wang, Ittai Shapira, violins, Rachel Barton, Danielle Farina, violas, Alexis Pia Gerlach, Sophie Shao, celli) Program: Richard Strauss, String Sextet from Capriccio, Op. 85; Brahms, String Sextet in B-flat, Op. 18; Tchaikovsky, String Sextet in d, Op. 70 ("Souvenir de Florence") Excellent playing throughout in this easy-on-the-ears concert! In heard the opener, the Strauss string sextet, on the other side of the door, but it sounded very impressive. Exquisite, in fact! Such a glorious sound, not often heard in this configuration, probably not often enough! And the last movement of this work (Rondo) demonstrated very well what one critic said about it, quoted in the program notes: "The Rondo is a carefree affair, drawing its spirit from 18th century drawing rooms carpeted with 19th century designs". A cleverly "drawn" remark, but most relevant! Overall, another excellent, worthwhile afternoon of chamber music, courtesy of Dr. Berkenblit, as well as Concertante. How apt their name is!

Extractions: Visit The Weekly Breakdown on the web at http://www.urbanophile.com/breakdown/ Rachel Barton, the violinist who had one leg partially severed in a rail accident last year, has asked the jury for an astronomical $600 million in damages. The jury deliberated nine hours on Saturday before adjorning for the weekend without reaching a verdict. Metra attorneys claimed the accident was Rachel Barton's own fault and that she should get nothing, but even if the jury found that she did deserve something, $5 million would be more than enough. The also expressed outrage at the sum asked for by Barton[ Source: Chicago Tribune 27 February 1999 ] Two more pedestrians were killed by Metra trains this week, both on the UP-Northwest line. One was hit by an express train in Cary at 6:15am. This stopped all trains until 8am and service was not back to normal until 11am. The other fatality was in Barrington at 1:40am. These two deaths bring the total number of Metra fatalities to seven in 1999. Two of the previous five have already been ruled suicides, with a third being alcohol related. [ Source: Chicago Tribune 26 February 1999 ] [ I wonder if the Barrington accident involed alcohol as well, considering the time - AMR ] Apparently the CTA deal to open a park and ride lot on South Cicero Ave. has fallen through. The CTA is pursuing alternate locations.
Extractions: May 21, 1999 n It's steamy, there's music playing, people are partying, a peculiar French fills the air. That describes Verdi's "La Traviata" and it will look like Little Rock, too, as the curtain rises in June on the ninth annual Wildwood Festival of music and art at the Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts. In an inspired move, Wildwood director Dr. Ann Chotard chose to set the classic opera about a dying courtesan in 19th century New Orleans. In Wildwood's La Traviata, Violetta is a quadroon, a woman of supposed wealth and beauty who, while appreciated by the white men of New Orleans high society, nevertheless is relegated to second class status by her African blood. It was just a small leap from there into a French motif for the entire Wildwood Festival, the first time the month-long event and its accompanying Fringe Festival that starts this week has taken up a particular theme. Famed New Orleans musicians Pete Fountain, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rockin' Dopsie Jr. and the Zydeco Twisters will set central Arkansas whirling. "The Pirates of Penzance" sets sail beside Lake Horace in a festival opener for young swashbucklers and their families; loose references to Jean Lafitte will tie it into the French repertoire, as will the Solid Brass Band in performances before and and during intermission. A virtuosi violinist will perform pieces by Creole composers of the 18th and 19th centuries and other musicians will offer up French pieces for piano and organ.

Extractions: Rachel Barton recorded this debut recital when she was in her teens. I immediately realized I was discovering a major violinist, even though Sarasate's music doesn't make the intellectual demands of Bach. Still, the natural musicianship, the ability to remain expressive while tossing off cascades of notes, and the beautiful sound were all indicators too obvious to miss. Other violinists may have played the Carmen Fantasy with a bit more facility (although Barton is no slouch), but few have made it so convincing as music. And in the delightful Spanish Dances , Barton positively sparkles, as does Samuel Sanders. Gorgeous recorded sound, too. Leslie Gerber
