A Christmas Carol: An Evening of Dickensian Delights

December 09, 2016 at Indian Boundary Park in Chicago.


Fury Theatre presents this uniquely intimate and immersive presentation of Dickens’ holiday classic. Adapted directly from the novel by Rachel Martindale, this version is a time traveling experience including the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a Victorian Christmas.

Come and enjoy the decorations, the Victorian Carols, spiced cider and cookies before the show (all included with the admission ticket). Then join Scrooge as he is led by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future on a journey to examine his life and learn that it’s never too late to change.

Presented in Dickens’ own rich language by three actors portraying all of the characters with the help of a few simple costume changes — and some special effects — this show is 80 minutes without intermission.

Let us ignite your Holiday Spirit with ours!

Featuring performances by Nick Ferrin as Ebenezer Scrooge and Joe Kloehn and Rachel Martindale as the Narrators.

Stage Manager: Kaitlin Stewart*

The Speed Of Change: 3rd Annual Cyber Risk Conference

November 29, 2016 at DePaul University in Chicago.


The cyber security landscape is rapidly changing in a dynamic interplay of threat, compliance, and protection. Just as we figure out how to address one risk, a new one takes its place. There is no such thing as a static state in cyber risk.

New threats—both individual and state-sponsored—bring new compliance and protection measures in an accelerating cycle of change.

As we enter an increasingly connected world, the Internet of Things has become a reality. New technologies bring new vulnerabilities. With these new vulnerabilities come new regulations and compliance issues, as well as a race to proactively protect users.
Behavior is also constantly shifting. A generation has now grown up completely at home with these new technologies and thus has a very different perspective towards privacy and protection.

These are just a few of the topics we’ll discuss in our three panels addressing the Speed of Change in Threat, Compliance, and Protection.

Featuring two keynote speakers:

Michael Echols
Executive Director/CEO International Association of Certified ISAOs; Former Director Cyber Joint Program Management, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Jeff Wright
Vice President & Chief Information Security Officer for Allstate Insurance Company

$150, but discounts available

Location: DePaul Center (DPC), 8005, 1 E Jackson Blvd

Comprised of 11 rail lines operating over 1,100 miles of track, Metra provides approximately 300,000 passenger trips each weekday and serves as a crucial link between 241 stations in the six-county region.

Orseno was appointed to his current position in 2014, after racking up four decades of experience in the railroad industry. A native of the Chicago area, he began his career in 1974 as a trainman for the Chicago Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. After the Rock Island Railroad ceased operations in March 1980, he was hired by the Chicago Northwestern Transportation Company as a locomotive engineer. In 1984, he began working for Metra and he has held progressively responsible management positions including: Trainmaster, Senior Trainmaster, Director of Mechanical, Director of Suburban Operations, Director of Safety and Rules, Chief Customer Service Officer, Chief Transportation Officer, and most recently, Deputy Executive Director/Chief Operating Office.

Student Appreciation ft. Beautycounter

November 02, 2016 at CorePower Yoga in Chicago.


Take either the 5:30pm Sculpt with Elly or the 5:45p C2 with Alyssa and enjoy some Beautycounter products after!

About three years ago, I made a conscious decision to be more aware of the products I choose to put on my skin. I often find myself roaming the Whole Foods beauty section trying to understand the ingredient list. It’s overwhelming, right?
In my search for the best self care, I was introduced to Beautycounter. Have you heard of it? It’s a company devoted to getting safe products into the hands of everyone. What inspired me to get behind this brand was the alarming fact that personal care companies are allowed to use known toxins- ingredients linked to cancer, reproductive issues, hormone disruption- without telling us.
To date, Europe has banned 1,300 ingredients, the US has only banned 11. Mind blowing.
I also learned the US has not passed a federal law to regulate ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.
I had no idea.
Please take a look at making a difference, every day for you and your family. What goes on us is as important as what goes in us.
I am thrilled to have this opportunity to make a difference by selling these products and educating ALL of us along the way. Perhaps you will be inspired, too (think Whole Foods meets Chanel).
Please visit my website for further information
