Overcoming Adversity with Attitude, Choice, and Purpose

Overcoming Adversity with Attitude, Choice, and Purpose

Julia Fox Garrison

This event will be a 75 minute presentation with a reception to follow.

Presentation, Reception, and Book Signing: $50.00

Presentation only: $35.00

Julia Fox Garrison is the author of Dont Leave Me This Way (or when I get back on my feet youll be sorry). The book chronicles her struggle to regain control over her life and her body, following a massive hemorrhage resulting in a paralyzing stroke. Julia has harnessed her first-hand experience in battling the medical establishment into a compelling message of strength and hope. Wielding her trademark humor and optimism, she transcends the sobering subject of stroke to show how anyone facing a life challenge can overcome adversity through laughter, boundless enthusiasm and unflinching determination.

Julia has been a special guest on local, US and Canadian television and radio programs. She is a highly sought after and acclaimed Keynote Speaker, conducting hundreds of lectures and presentations nationwide. Julia has lectured at medical conferences where she evangelizes for humaneness in medicine. Speaking from the patients perspective, she espouses the value of quality patient care. She also speaks to support and patient advocacy groups, businesses and community organizations where she shares her story of personal triumph against overwhelming odds.

Julia was raised in Andover, MA, in a loving if chaotic household with eight brothers; an upbringing that no doubt made her battle ready for the literal fight of her life. She graduated from Katherine Gibbs School, Boston and Champlain College, Burlington, VT. Julia was an accomplished Manager of Software Support at her company when she suffered the debilitating injury that effectively ended her career in the corporate world. Thus began her journey of rediscovery. Julia currently resides with her husband Jim, son Rory, and dog Shaggy in a suburb outside Boston.

Tool Training: Manual Milling Machine NOVEMBER


The manual mills in the Asylum machine shop are amazingly versatile tools- they can be used to create precisely dimensioned parts out of aluminum, steel, or plastic, cut sheets of metal to size, or miter tubes for welding. This class will teach you how to setup a bridgeport-style mill for precision machining, how to securely hold a part, how to precisely measure distances down to one-thousandth of an inch, and how to make facing cuts and drill holes using a wide variety of mill bits and accessories.

Successful completion of this course will qualify students to use the Artisan's Asylum Bridgeport mills independently as member.

This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool -- that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will simply give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the mill.

Class Goals:

Students will learn to:

  • Move the mill table accurately along x, y, and z axes
  • Change mill spindle speeds for different tasks and materials
  • "True" the mill table using a dial indicator
  • Attach a vise to the mill table, and identify the uses of different fixturing accessories.
  • Securely clamp a small aluminum block.
  • Identify a variety of mill bits and their uses.
  • "Face", or cut a side of, an aluminum block to achieve a precise dimension and smooth finish.
  • Find the edge of a clamped workpiece, and drill a hole a precise distance from the edge.
  • Clean and maintain the mill.


Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

Aluminum block: $3. Bring some cash, or bring a 1"-ish X 1"-ish X 2"-ish aluminum scrap piece

What to Bring:

Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes, long-sleeve shirt.

Instructor Biography:

Danaan Metge is a mechanical engineer with extensive prototyping experience. His experience with a mill, lathe, welder, and 3D printer was gleaned from work fabricating parts for an electric self-balancing motorcycle and an off-road gas-powered skateboard with a small company in Somerville, and also from designing and building his own bicycle frame and guitar amplifier.

Event Time:

Manual Mill Tool Trainings run every other Tuesday evening from 7:15pm to 9:15pm.

BASG: The Sharing Economy - November 4, 2014

In partnership with Northbound Ventures, BASG presents: The Sharing Economy

Its hot, its very cool, and it is decidedly disruptive. And its creating quite the controversy. The Sharing Economy holds great promise and faces great challenges.

Come meet, hear, and engage with:

Emily Stapleton,General Manager, Alta Bicycle Share, Inc.(Operator of Hubway Bicycle System)

Emily will focus on shared transportation and public/private partnerships. Hubway bike share system is a collaboration between the municipalities of Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and Brookline. She also has experience in public sector transit at Transport for London and public sector logistics, as a consultant to the US Department of Defense. Emily received her MBA from Harvard Business School and her undergraduate degree in psychology from Harvard College.

Molly Cohen, Law Fellow in Nonprofit Law,Office of the General Counsel at New York University

Molly Cohen and Corey Zehngebot wrote a terrific article in the Boston Bar Journal (April, 2014) entitled, Whats Old Becomes New: Regulating the Sharing Economy. Molly is a student at the Harvard Law School and a Law Fellow at NYU. She has been helping municipalities regulate the shared economy companies with a sense for balancing the safety and welfare of the public with the potential for economic development opportunities. Molly has examined the legal issues raised by the sharing economy along with the plea for the legal community to be proactive rather than reactive given the tremendous environmental, social and economic benefits of this activity. Molly will talk about whether the serious legal and regulatory issues created by the sharing economys rapid emergence might best be addressed by embracing concurrent regulatory innovation.

Katie Shultz, Lead Host & Community Manager, Impact Hub Boston

Impact Hub Boston is a coworking space and community for folks working on social entrepreneurship and for social good in Boston and beyond. Previously, Katie worked at a variety of non-profits - including a watershed protection group in Alabama and with conservation agriculture projects in South Sudan - and most recently carried her passion for sustainability to the People's Climate March in NYC. Katie will discuss coworking, at Impact Hub Boston and beyond, which takes the "Sharing Economy" to newOffice Space- and offers equal opportunities for groans, laughter, and broad-based connections.

Time is short and we all need to learn a boatload, fast. One of BASGs explicit goals is that we learn as much as we can from each other, where the very diversity of the group is one of our most valuable assets. Come join the discussion, or hang out and listen. Meet those folks working hard to do what youre trying to do and your paths have not yet crossed. We have a great time and really want to meet you!

Our format for the evening begins with informal networking followed by quick introductions all round before several lightening-speed presentations from knowledgeable folks. Using a modified IGNITE-style format, our speakers share their experiencesand then we open the discussion to the group.

Well end the discussion with time left for more networking and sharing info on other local events. Hope to see you there!
