This year I decided to participate in the Dry July challenge – 31 days of abstinence from alcohol.
The main objective of Dry July is raising money to benefit people dealing with cancer.
The flow-on effect is enjoying the benefits of not drinking alcohol and possibly to start some new health and lifestyles habits.
Please consider making a donation to help people currently dealing with cancer.
This is the text of an editorial I presented at Toastmasters as my “Straight Talk” assignment from the Communicating on Video manual. The objectives are to effectively present an opinion or viewpoint in a short time, and simulate giving a presentation as part of a video broadcast.
Here is my video recording and speech text. Please leave your comments at the end of the article.
Sarasate was born in 1844 and died in 1908. In this article I have located videos of my favourite Sarasate compositions including the Carmen Fantasy which is often performed in violin competitions. as well as Zigeunerweisen (Gypsy Tunes). I have also enjoyed performances of Navarra – for two violins and piano.
