Celebrating 40 Years! A History of the German Language School of Connecticut (GSC)

The GSC is a private, non-profit language school with most of the professional teachers native German speakers and celebrates it's 40th year in Connecticut!

We desire to have our children learn this language, not only to remember their roots but also to be more competitive on the international scene when their professional lives start.”

— Dr. Ludanyi, Principal and President

STAMFORD, CT, US, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every Year is an Achievement at The German School of Connecticut

Students from every slice of life enjoy spending their Saturday mornings learning to speak German and become immersed in Germany’s culture.
The German Language School of Connecticut is a private, non-profit language school with most of the professional teachers native German speakers. There are two semesters, and the tuition is nominal. Parent volunteers help to keep costs down.
Many of the students have a German heritage. They may come from bilingual or multilingual homes where German is spoken. Yet a good number of students attend who have no ties to the homeland and no prior knowledge of the language. They enroll for the joy of learning a new language.
This year The German Language School is celebrating forty years of successfully educating students who may chose to attend a German University, enter the German world of international business, art and politics or just feel comfortable enough with the language to read off a menu or converse with others where German is spoken.

History of the German Language School

The month is October. The year is 1978. Couples waltz around the dance floor at The Pinewood Lake Club House. They’re enjoying dancing to the music of a big band just as much as they’d loved listening to a string quartet before dinner while sipping champagne. This is The Viennese Benefit Ball –a festive fundraiser for the newly opened German Language School. The cost of each ticket: $12.50.
Another event takes place the following June. This one, “A Little Bit of Bavaria,” is a German beer dance and sing-along. For entertainment, Schuhplattler dancers perform traditional Bavarian dances. These tickets cost $6.00 each.
The Vision of a German School

German- American parents living in Stamford, CT shared their concerns about how their children will learn to speak and write German and absorb the rich culture of their homeland. They shared their thoughts of opening a German school that would meet on Saturday mornings during the school year, thus becoming what is known as “a Saturday school.”
They were not alone with their anxiety about the importance of languages in an international world. It was underscored in April 1978 when President Jimmy Carter established a Commission on Foreign Languages and International Studies.
Opening a German Saturday school was an ambitious goal. The parents understood the need for serious financial backing, professional teachers and strong and dedicated leadership to establish a workable structure and create a challenging curriculum.

One member of this group was Frau Dr. Renate Ludanyi, a college professor of German at Western Connecticut University in Danbury, CT. As an educator, she knew that the ability to learn a new language is highest when children are young. As if she needed further convincing, her daughter kept telling her, “I want to learn German with a “real teacher.” The year was 1977—forty years ago.

Steering Committee is Formed

Members of the steering committee were Dr. Ludanyi, Mrs. Bronder, Mrs. Dautel, Mrs. Lust, Mrs. Sigrist, Mrs. Yeager and Mr. Klostemann. They established the guidelines: the school would provide professional instruction in the German language for children and adults, be in session for 30 Saturdays during the school year from mid-September to early June and have an enrollment of at least thirty students with a minimum of ten in each class. It would be affiliated with the German Language School Conference, Inc.
Before going further, this committee needed to know if there was enough interest. They sent a questionnaire to members of the Stamford community. The response was enthusiastic. “It’s an idea long overdue,” a German mother wrote. “Will you have classes for adults?” a Hungarian-German engineer asked.
The committee was further encouraged to learn the results from a recent study of 260 German companies in the United States. About half of those who responded replied that “they were hoping to hire German-speaking professionals in the near future.”

Dr. Ludanyi is quoted in the local newspaper as saying: “Because of a recent influx of German industries into Fairfield County, a new and urgent interest in the German language and culture has developed in this area.”

Building Is Found; Teachers are Hired

On May 22, 1978, a school with the name of The Independent German Language School of Southern Connecticut was incorporated. That summer was spent in finding a school willing to rent them space on Saturday mornings. It needed to be centrally located for the majority of families, accessible in all weather to the Merritt Parkway and CT Turnpike, have adequate parking and a pleasant atmosphere in which the children could work. A private K-8 school, Unquowa School, in Fairfield, CT was chosen.

College educated teachers who spoke fluent German needed to be hired. Most of the applicants were native-born Germans with advanced degrees.
Understandably, the organizers were most concerned about having a large enough enrollment. Not content to rely on solely word of mouth, they hung informational posters in libraries, supermarkets, and local businesses. They needn’t have worried.

Ken Sutiak Explains Why Recycling is Important

Ken Sutiak dedicates his life to making the world a better place and this is how you can help.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ken Sutiak loves to help create better situations for the world he finds himself in. Whether he is helping animals, his community, or the environment, Sutiak takes his responsibility seriously.

Starting off as a Human Resource Assistant at NJ Transit, Sutiak spent his free time with the local 4H Club. Living in Clifton, New Jersey, Sutiak didn’t have much time to himself. However, the time he did have was spent helping animals. It made him feel good to be able to do such a selfless act.

Sadly, when Ken Sutiak’s mother was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease Sutiak moved back to his hometown of Totowa, New Jersey. Even though he left behind a life he loved in Clifton, helping his mother was the most important thing to him.

However, even throughout taking care of his mother, Sutiak found the time to help others in his community.

Now, Ken Sutiak is an advocate for recycling, because it affects everything that Sutiak’s efforts work tirelessly to overcome.

Animals

For years, Sutiak has worked with The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Sutiak has worked his way up from writing letters that would garner the attention of the decision-makers and editors. Currently, he speaks with those decision makers, advocating for animal rights.

According to Endangered Species International, globally humans use more than 260 million tons of plastic each year. Unfortunately, a lot of that ends up in a landfill. Since plastic isn’t biodegradable, it fills up those waste sites, contributing to an ever-growing problem.

However, waste consuming our landfills isn’t the only thing that a lack of recycling makes dangerous. It is also killing animals.

The longer something sits in a landfill, the more of a possibility that it will be taken out of the landfill. Whether it is dumped or taken away by a force of nature, animals are getting into the plastic. Some are eating it, while others get stuck on it.

Fortunately, to stop the death toll of this horrific plastic plague, all people must do is recycle.

Community Involvement

Everyone wants to live in a place that is free of garbage and debris. No one wants to breathe in chemicals and greenhouse gases every time they take a breath.

However, by not recycling, people are destroying the communities they live in. Recycling Guide explains that besides the effects, not recycling is having on the present, we are extinguishing natural resources. No resources will remain, for future generations, eventually.

Besides working with the ASPCA, Ken Sutiak also spends his time helping to clean up communities.

Sutiak works with the youth during this endeavor, explaining the importance of recycling and encouraging them to make better choices. Sutiak believes that if he and the kids he works with lead by example, their actions will inspire others.

In summation, Ken Sutiak knows recycling is essential. He is an advocate for the animals, as well as the communities. Sutiak’s actions, especially through recycling, are fighting for the survival of the planet, both now and in the future.

Ontario Liberal’s Post Secondary Bias is Unfair – John Harris, President, Harris Institute

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Liberal government of Ontario treats private colleges unfairly while misleading the public about the performance of publicly funded colleges.

Full disclosure: I have operated a private college in Toronto for 29 years; served on Advisory Boards at Humber College for 7 years and Ryerson University for 4 years; was a Task Force member for 4 years for Dianne Cunningham (former Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities) and have established two unprecedented educational partnerships in the UK.

Private colleges have contributed to Ontario’s economy since 1871. There are currently over 500 regulated private colleges in Ontario delivering essential training in more than 900 programs. Graduates of private colleges save Ontario taxpayers over $1 billion a year in educational subsidies and the colleges pay more than $90 million in business and payroll taxes.

As a member of Minister Cunningham’s Task Force from 2001 to 2005, I urged the ministry to publish what I believe are the most valuable statistics for prospective post secondary students – ‘the percentage of graduates working in their field of study’. At that time the ministry published the percentage of graduates working in any field six months after graduating and included no disclaimer that they were not necessarily working in their field of study. This misled the public about the outcomes of all post secondary programs and the job market reality.

Now, 12 years later, the ministry has begun publishing the percentage of private college graduates ‘working in their field of study’. Private colleges pay Forum Research to assemble the statistics and the ministry publishes the results. This information will vastly improve the outcomes of the sector and will be extremely valuable for students choosing schools, programs and career paths in the future.

Recently published ministry statistics for the publicly funded colleges in Ontario still prominently feature the percentage of graduates working anywhere six months after graduating. Although Forum Research collects ‘field of study’ statistics for the community colleges, the ministry does not publish them. This information should be made public.

The government of Ontario also opposes ‘Post Graduate Work Permits’ for international graduates of private colleges but supports them for international graduates of publicly funded institutions. The C.D. Howe Institute states, “The potential pool of international students is limited because international students in private career colleges cannot obtain a work permit”. This is unfair and detrimental to Ontario’s economy.

As well as this inequitable treatment, the ministry punitively over-regulates private colleges with excessive and costly administrative requirements because of a small number of colleges that have failed. Examples are the mandatory requirement for Audited Financial Statements from all private colleges regardless of size and the ineligibility for claiming HST input tax credits, which is a direct cause of higher tuitions. On multiple occasions I have needed both the provincial Ombudsman and corporate attorneys to deal with unwarranted disruptive treatment by the ministry.

The ministry’s abrupt closure of Everest College in 2015 created unnecessary disruption for 3,000 students and faculty at a cost to Ontario taxpayers of $7.4M. There would have been no disruption and minimal cost if the ministry had simply prohibited the college from admitting new students and required it to complete the training of current students.

It is essential students; parents and taxpayers demand that Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister Deborah Matthews treat both public and private post secondary schools equally. To express concerns about these issues contact:

Kathleen Wynne, Premier
Kwynne.mpp@liberal.ola.org

Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD)
mhunter.co@liberal.ola.org

About Harris Institute

Harris Institute ranked best school of its kind for a 6th year in the ‘Media Arts Education Report’ and it is the only school outside the US in Billboard Magazine’s ‘Top 11 Schools’. It has the lowest ‘Student Loan Default Rates’ of any post secondary school in North America and is the only college that offers graduates full scholarships for university degrees.

The college has the highest percentage of award winning faculty of any school and its graduates have won or were nominated for 246 awards in the last two years. An unprecedented partnership with the University of the West of Scotland enables double Diploma graduates from Harris to also earn Master’s Degrees in a total of 32 months.

Attorney Anthony Marin Of New Mexico Discusses The Strangest Laws In The Country

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a lawyer, Anthony Marin has to be well versed on various legal issues in this country. Like most lawyers, he has come across clear-cut criminal cases, business litigation, family law, white collar crime, and more. However, he has also always held an interest in some of the strange laws that can be found in this country, wondering where they came from and why they are still in place.

22 Weird Laws in Cities and States, According to Anthony Marin

The list of laws that seem to have no place in today's society is almost endless. For Anthony Marin, they have become somewhat of a collection and his all-time favorite 22 strange laws, and where they are still in force, are:

1. In North Carolina, a bingo game may not last longer than five hours.
2. In Quitman, GA, a chicken is not allowed to cross the road.
3. In Arizona, cutting down a cactus could lead to a 25 year prison sentence.
4. In Paulding, OH, a police officer is within his rights to bite a dog if he believes this will help calm down the animal.
5. In Texas, it is prohibited to sell your own eyeballs.
6. In North Carolina, it is illegal for someone to sing off key.
7. In Rhode Island, it is illegal to sell a toothbrush and toothpaste to the same customer if it is a Sunday.
8. In Gainesville, GA, the only legal way to eat fried chicken is by using your hands.
9. In Utah, it is only illegal for cousins to marry if either is younger than 65.
10. In Minneapolis, MN, it is illegal for a red car to drive on Lake Street.
11. In Carrizozo, NM, a woman may not legally appear in public unshaven.
12. In Alabama, bear wrestling matches (organizing, spectating, or taking part in) are prohibited.
13. In Wyoming, it is illegal to photograph rabbits between January and April, unless you have received an official permit to do so.
14. In Washington, it is illegal to purchase any kind of meat on Sundays.
15. In Indiana, nobody is allowed to use public transport or attend a public event if they have consumed garlic and/or onions in the past four hours.
16. In San Antonio, TX, it is illegal to flirt.
17. In Idaho, a man is not allowed to give his fiancee a box of candy that weighs in excess of 50 lbs (22.5 kg).
18. In Washington, if a motorist has a criminal intention when entering the city, he is obliged by law to stop at the city limits and inform the chief of police of such intent by telephone before coming into the state.
19. In Arizona, if you are caught stealing soap, you are obliged by law to wash yourself until such time that the soap is totally consumed.
20. In Eureka, NV, anyone with a mustache is forbidden to kiss a woman.
21. In Waynesboro, VA, it is illegal for a woman to drive a vehicle in Main Street unless she is accompanied by her husband, who must walk ahead of the vehicle while waving a red flag.
22. In Washington, harassing Bigfoot can lead to an arrest and a fine.

Why These Laws Exist

According to Anthony Marin, although these laws may all be very funny and amusing, they must be there for a purpose. In many cases, the laws can indeed be traced back to some sort of event that led to a protest, often uncontested, which then resulted in a change of law. And, in most cases, the laws are still in place because removing or changing them takes too much time and money. Not just that, a lot of laws are worded in a certain way that may make them appear strange. One example is point 3, that it is illegal to cut down a cactus in Arizona and that doing so can result in a 25-year prison sentence. While technically correct, it is actually part of the overall tree preservation and nature conservation laws, which, if breached, can indeed lead to a hefty prison sentence.

At the same time, there are numerous very strange laws that are factually accurate and that cannot be misinterpreted. For instance, it is illegal to tie an alligator to a fire hydrant in Michigan. Whether or not many people have tried to do this, is unclear, but it is an absolute fact that it has a purpose.

The IAYFJM and the NCJFCJ have enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership so it is particularly gratifying that our relationship will deepen through Judge Stucki’s election as deputy-president.”

— Avril Calder, IAYFJM past president

RENO, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Reno, Nev.) – The Honorable David E. Stucki was elected deputy-president of the International Association of Youth and Family Judges and Magistrates (IAYFJM) during the 2018 World Congress on Justice for Children this week in Paris.

Judge Stucki serves as a representative of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ). and the only U.S. seat in the IAYFJM council, which is comprised of 17 countries. As the deputy-president, Judge Stucki will assist the NCJFCJ in efforts to establish collaboration between nations and international judges, examine links between national and international principles for the protection of youth and their families, and promote the awareness and application of children’s rights.

Founded in Brussels in 1928, the IAYFJM represents worldwide efforts to establish links between judges from different countries but also with other international associations working for youth and family protection. It promotes research on international problems facing the operation of the courts and various laws relating to youth and family.

The NCJFCJ’s emphasis on international efforts began with the establishment of the International Committee and through association with IAYFJM. This involvement helps advance the NCJFCJ as a leader in juvenile and family law on an international level. The NCJFCJ hosts several international visits a year through the International Visitor Leadership Program, the Meridian International Center, and the Northern Nevada International Center. Last month, the NCJFCJ sent its first international delegation in eight years to Cuba, led by NCJFCJ president Judge Anthony (Tony) Capizzi, for a weeklong opportunity to meet and learn from Cuban counterparts about the challenges and advances of juvenile and family law in Cuba.

“This is a unique global effort to establish links between judges from different countries and promotes research on international problems facing courts relating to youth and families,” said Judge Stucki. “The international leaders that comprise the IAYFJM council understand the protection of youth and their families is universal and is at the core of the mission.”

The NCJFCJ’s membership of more than 1,500 and has representation from Guam, Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Germany, Canada, Nigeria, and Australia.

“I am honored to be elected as deputy-president of IAYFJM,” said Judge Stucki. “As a long-time member, former president, and representative of the NCJFCJ, our association has helped increase global awareness of the NCJFCJ’s continuing efforts to provide judicial officers and courts involved with juvenile, family, and domestic violence cases with the knowledge and skills to improve the lives of the families and children who seek justice.”

Judge Stucki served on the Stark County Family Court for 18 years before he retired in 2011. He is the chairman of the Governor’s Council on Juvenile Justice and is a past president of the Ohio Association of Juvenile Court Judges. He served as the president of the NCJFCJ from 2013-2014.

“The IAYFJM and the NCJFCJ have enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership so it is particularly gratifying that our relationship will deepen through Judge Stucki’s election as deputy-president,” said Avril Calder, IAYFJM past president. “Judge Stucki will, with his enthusiastic upholding of the rights of children and his undoubted knowledge of the nature of the challenges facing judges, be of benefit to children everywhere.”

The World Congress on Justice for Children was this week at the UNESCO House in Paris. Bringing together judges and other professionals specializing in justice systems for children and their families from all over the world, World Congress participants discussed the latest developments in the field and to enhance coordination to address crucial issues and challenges.

About the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ):
Founded in 1937, the Reno, Nev.-based National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, is the nation’s oldest judicial membership organization and focused on improving the effectiveness of our nation’s juvenile and family courts.

Colethea Jenkins From Atlanta, Explains The Key Foods Everyone Should Include In Their Diet

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Most people have heard of so-called "superfoods", which are believed to be helpful for a variety of things. Weight loss, an improved immune system, better skin, better vision, and so on are all health goals that are supposed to be achieved through different kinds of superfoods. Colethea Jenkins, however, feels that it is more important that people know which foods to eat in order to be healthy overall.

The Healthiest Foods in the World

Organizations both here and in Western Europe have spent a lot of time researching the health benefits of different foods, something that Colethea Jenkins has been watching with interest. He is particularly concerned about fads surrounding crash diets, which have the potential to be dangerous. He is also concerned about the fact that, on average, 100 acres of pizza are consumed every day in this country alone. Clearly, there is a lack of balance in people’s diet that needs to be addressed.

Based on various pieces of research, Colethea Jenkins has been able to identify the healthiest foods on the planet, which should be included in all diets. They are:

1. Nuts, pulses, and grains

These foods are full of nutritional value and should, therefore, be consumed regularly. The most important ones are almonds, Brazil nuts, lentils, oatmeal, and wheat germ. Nuts, pulses, and grains contain a variety of important vitamins and minerals that support heart health and other bodily functions. Furthermore, they are perfect for snacks.

2. Vegetables, fruits, and berries

There are so many different vegetables, fruits, and berries to choose from that it is almost a crime not to add them to one’s diet. However, some are healthier than others, which is why Colethea Jenkins suggests that a healthy diet should include broccoli, apples, kale, avocados, leafy green vegetables, and sweet potatoes. Again, these foods are full of important minerals and vitamins to support various parts of overall health.

3. Fish, meat, and eggs

Fish, meat, and eggs provide people with the necessary protein. However, a lot of meats are not healthy and can cause significant health problems, with red meats being an example. According to Colethea Jenkins, a healthy diet should include oily fish, venison, chicken, salmon, and free range eggs. Not only do these provide the body with essential protein, but they also help with brain health, heart health, and overall health.

The Importance of Moderation and Balance

In order for people to be healthy, they should not just consume the above foods, they should also focus on moderation. Most people think about food mainly from a weight loss perspective. This makes sense, not just because we live in a society that is obsessed with physical appearance, but also because there is a clear link between weight and health. While most of us know that in order to maintain a healthy weight, we have to focus on both diet and exercise, few of us know that diet actually makes up 80% of weight gain or weight loss. This is why balance and moderation are so important.

For instance, sugars and fats, except omega 3 fats found in oily fish or avocado, are not healthy. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that they have no place in a balanced diet. The occasional treat goes a long way towards helping people to sustain a healthy lifestyle overall. Colethea Jenkins has seen time and again that some people manage to become healthier and lose some pounds to achieve a healthy weight, only to lose it all because they suddenly decide to go on a binge. This is because, psychologically, when we deny ourselves something, we start to crave it more.

The Importance of Treats

Because of the above, Colethea Jenkins believes that treats are also an essential part of a healthy diet. This doesn't mean that someone should eat pizza every day or have a chocolate cake every day. What it means is that the occasional pizza is perfectly acceptable, and so with the occasional slice of cake. He recommends, however, that people drink a glass of water before having their treat, thereby making the stomach feel full faster. This will make it easier to resist over-eating.

The Value of Proper Hydration

Indeed, proper hydration is the final key element of being healthy. Water is abundantly available yet insufficiently consumed. Water helps our body to flush out the toxins we accumulate over the course of the day. It also keeps us hydrated, which is important for a person’s energy level, skin, hair, and other bodily functions. Last but not least, it is the one thing that you can never have too much of.

Miami Sculptor Beatriz Gerenstein Shows a 10 Feet High Sculpture During the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale.

The Third Partner by Beatriz Gerenstein facing the Venice Lagoon

The Third Partner by Beatriz Gerenstein at the Giardini della Marinaressa, Venice, Italy

The Third Partner by Beatriz Gerenstein and San Marco Campanile (tower)

The third Partner, the sculpture installed in the Venetian public park Giardino della Marinaressa has a compelling social message.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The sculptor Beatriz Gerenstein is showing a three-meter (10 feet) high, stainless steel public sculpture in the exhibition “Time Space Existence” during the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale. The exhibition is on view at the Gardino della Marinaressa, Riva dei Sette Martiri, 30122 Venezia, Italy, from May 26 to November 25, 2018.

Beatriz Gerenstein named her monumental sculpture “The Third Partner.” It is 3.1 meters high (10.5 feet), made of stainless steel and has a mirror finish. A large, shiny knot is in the center of the sculpture. Three ends emerge from the knot instead of the two we always see. Two ends appear at an angle from the bottom of the knot and join the base of the sculpture in an elegant gesture. The third end comes up from the knot, towards the sky.

In Gerenstein's narrative, every activity of human beings, such as love, business or friendship, requires an imperceptible but undeniable energy that facilitates our relationship with other people. The third end of the knot, the one that heads to the heavens, represents a channel for that energy, it is The Third Partner.

The Third Partner is installed at the entrance of a Venetian public park, the Giardino della Marinaressa. The mixed blue and green lights coming from the Venice lagoon and the trees of the gardens produce pleasant reflections in the bright surface of the sculpture, adding a touch of magic to the whole scene.

In a world where everything often speaks the same aesthetic language and the human being is being removed from the scene or used as an object, Beatriz Gerenstein’s wants to break the monotony of the conversation. Her sculptures talk about the human condition, love, friendship, anguish, indulgence, joy, pain, and hope.
Beatriz Gerenstein was born in Argentina and lives and works in Miami, USA.

The exhibition “Time Space Existence” is organized by the Global Art Affair Foundation and held by the European Cultural Centre in the context of the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale.

Rimonim Art Gallery was founded by Rick Rofe in 2010. The Gallery is committed to showing artworks that deserve to be seen, unique concepts able to engage the viewer, to confront them with ideas, thoughts, and emotions. Our emphasis is on the aesthetic and the message.

Singer-Songwriter Eddy Mann Announces the Release of the 'Cowboy in the Badlands' Official Lyric Video

Singer-Songwriter Eddy Mann releases 'Cowboy in the Badlands' as the third in a series of lyric videos from the "Simple Things" album.

There between the brushstrokes of each painting I saw a story, I heard a song, and there in that moment the album began to take form.”

— Eddy Mann

PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Singer-songwriter Eddy Mann is announcing the release of “Cowboy in the Badlands” as the third in a series of lyric videos from the "Simple Things" album.

Eddy said, "The album's songs were inspired by the paintings of realist artist Thomas Eakins from Philadelphia, PA. There between the brushstrokes of each painting I saw a story, I heard a song, and there in that moment the album began to take form. It’s my hope that we can teach a new generation to love and appreciate the arts in new and creative ways while still preserving and passing down our varying cultures."

JamSphere called the album "Awe inspiring!" The Beach Sloth publication wrote that, “Cowboy in the Badlands” goes for a playful quality as the entire piece has almost a flirtatious tone to it."
