Coda is a five-piece live dubstep band based out of London that was formed in 2009. The members met one another whilst studying at the Academy of Contemporary music and after bonding over a shared respect for various styles of music, decided to form a band together. The group's live set showcases the quintet's ability to incorporate various elements, not typically found in an electronic performance, like live horn sections, into a unique club and dance-friendly concert experience. While the group's sound is oftentimes referred to as dubstep, the instrumentalists in Coda manage to incorporate various elements of other electronic genres into their sound to keep listeners constantly enraptured with each evolving song.

Love gets lost in translation in "The Language Archive", an inventive comedy about communication, relationships and Esperanto written by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Julia Cho ("Big Love", "The Piano Teacher"). In it, a brilliant linguist consumed with preserving the dying languages of far-flung cultures faces the potential end of his marriage -- unless he can find the words to stop his wife from leaving. Meanwhile, his archival assistant is mute with adoration for him, and his newest subjects, an elderly couple who are the last speakers of an obscure language, refuse to utter a single word to one another.

Sometimes you need to give your body a rest from what you have been eating regularly, such as meats, especially those that take quite a bit of time to digest and to rid the body of toxins that came in through certain foods eaten. Over the last eight years I have faced obesity twice and have journaled my progress to freedom. Further, in writing several books to help others overcome obesity as well, I have now created online weight loss / nutrition and weight management "events" for those whom are "on-the-go", have limited finances to join gyms and weight loss groups and programs and for those whom simply cannot afford to nor have the time to exercise 1-2 hours per day as well as endure the pounding that "daily" jogging puts on your knees. My solutions to weight loss, weight management, nurition and getting your health back on track is for any one of any age. Within my books I discuss how I lost 170lbs, beat obesity twice and sculpted an eating, workout and overall nutrition plan that can be done ANYWHERE.

Born into a large family of Irish-Americans, Sexton left home at 22 to busk on the streets, in an attempt to forge his own path separate from his siblings and start a music career. Eventually Sexton ended up in Massachusetts and by 1994 had received the Boston Music Award for Best New Artist, primarily due to the increasing popularity of his live shows where the singer/songwriter jumped from genre to genre, including the occasional beatboxing and scat. Primarily popular on the dad rock circuit today, Martin Sexton continues to garner awards and tour frequently.

The Randy Rogers Band is a country music quintet based in Texas that is led by lead vocalist Randy Rogers who formed the band in the year 2000. Since the band's debut album Live at Cheatham Street Warehouse in 2002, the Randy Rogers Band has grown to become one of the most lucrative country music acts on the scene today, earning over $2.5 million as an up-and-coming act on the tour circuit in a single year. However, the band seems to reside on the outskirts of mainstream country music, which still adds a certain something to the band's allure for listeners who appreciate the the Randy Rogers Band's lack of willingness to "sell out," so to speak.
