National Stress Awareness Month

Stress: it can make your heart race, your head pound & your stomach churn. While a little stress can be a good thing – and even help you perform under pressure – too much stress can be bad for your health, causing headaches, stomach pain, trouble sleeping & even a weakened immune system. It’s hard to avoid stress altogether, but there are steps you can take to manage it.

REMINDER BRING YOUR USED INK CARTRIDGES TO THE HUMAN RACE

HELP get the word out–in advance–to bring USED INK CARTRIDGES to the NCMUG Booth & deposit them in our Yellow Collection Box when they come to the HUMAN RACE. This event is a great opportunity to help Foster Youth & NCMUG in its support of education & our local community.

We are a group of friendly Mac enthusiasts dedicated to helping people learn all about the Mac (& other Apple products, like the iPhone & iPad). And we recently celebrated our 30th Anniversary!

NCMUG will again be participating in the Human Race by hosting a booth, where we will have a collection box for recycled ink cartridges.

We have teamed up with Operation GOALS (a local nonprofit) who turn spent ink cartridges in for cash, in order to purchase educational supplies such as books, calculators, Kindles, etc. for Foster Youth who cannot afford to buy such necessities.

RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles - Wells Fargo Center for the Arts

Tickets go on sale today at 12/Noon.

Performing the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex & challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. In addition to the updated sets featuring brand new LED, High-Definition screens & multimedia content, new songs have also been included with the launch of the 2014-2015 Tour. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture & nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (“I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” & more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love & a little help from your friends in a performance the Los Angeles Times calls, “A 2-hour homage to pop music’s most brilliant gem.”

Tickets: $75, $65 & $55.
