San Marcos, Texas (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

Eric Sommer, Pop American Artist and guitar player extraordinaire, is coming East.

And that’s good news for Eric Sommer fans along the eastern seaboard and acoustic guitar aficionados, in particular. Mr. Sommer is known for playing small capacity rooms, generally 75 – 150 seats, and a small environment seems to amplify his explosive guitar style significantly. Almost all the rooms on this tour are small capacity rooms.

Mr. Sommer will be starting his eastern swing when he leaves Norman Oklahoma on May 3rd after a performance at The Blue Bonnet. May 1st finds Eric Sommer in Memphis at Kudzu’s and May 2nd in Little Rock at the venerable Midtown Billiards. Additional stops after that include:

These type of schedules are nothing new for Mr. Sommer; they are the norm, rather than the exception. A consumate professional, Eric Sommer has earned the respect and admiration of a generation of young players and song-writers; 2014 could very well be the year Mr. Sommer receives the recognition he deserves.

More writings are also in the works – short stories, a reading tour and more of the single page compositions so popular in Red Chairs, Black Pancake and Blue Turtles, the newest collect coming this Fall as well.

With open tunings, slide guitar, lap-slap tone guitar and a remarkably aggressive fingering style approach, watching Eric Sommer will make you jump out of your seat and holler for joy! There are very few players who have maintained this authentic American style of guitar, and Eric Sommer is one of the very best.

Tour for Diversity in Medicines 5th Bus Tour Crosses the Southwest to Mentor the Next Generation of Minority Medical Students


Albuquerque, N.M. (PRWEB) February 03, 2014

The Tour for Diversity in Medicine, a volunteer initiative developed by two young physicians, will travel across the Southwest from February 3 7, 2014 during its fifth bus Tour to help minority students pursue careers in medicine and dentistry. Reaching five universities and colleges in just five days, 15 doctors, dentists and medical school students from across the country will provide free, full-day workshops to local college students. For the first time the Tour also will offer a new combined curriculum highlighting college readiness for high school and college students in Albuquerque, N.M. In addition, the Tour will provide courses customized for the needs of community college students when it meets with them for the first time in Phoenix.

Sponsored in part by the U.S. Army, the Tour for Diversity in Medicine aims to help diversify the health care profession by giving minority students the advice and tools they will need to pursue medical careers. Although African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans comprise more than 26 percent of the U.S. population, they represent only six percent of practicing physicians and five percent of dentists, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). However, research shows that patients who receive care from doctors of the same background are more satisfied and engaged in their care.

Were working community-by-community to inspire the next generation of healthcare professionals and make a positive impact on the current state of diversity in the medical profession, said Alden Landry, M.D., co-founder of the Tour for Diversity in Medicine and an emergency department physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. Our new curriculum for high school and community college students will help even more students better understand how they can overcome perceived barriers of pursuing a medical career. Through in-person meetings and ongoing mentorship after our Tours, were making a tangible difference in the lives of future doctors across the country.

The Tour for Diversity in Medicine will travel more than 1,700 miles to visit the following schools:

Orange County Personal Injury Lawyer Dan Carlton Comments on Report about Tour Bus Accident Resulting in 10 Injuries

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2013

Irvine, California personal injury lawyer Dan Carlton said the next several weeks may be a difficult time for victims of a recent crash involving a tour bus headed to a casino in Southern California.

The bus accident, which occurred near Temecula, resulted in injuries to 10 people, according to an NBC 4 report (Tour Bus Crashes on Way to Southern California Casino, Sept. 2).

According to NBC 4, the driver told California Highway Patrol officers that he noticed a brake problem before the bus crashed into a ditch. The accident is under investigation, according to the report.

Injuries from bus accidents should not be taken lightly, said Carlton, who represents victims of negligence and families who lost loved ones in accidents. Its critical for victims to seek medical attention immediately and continue to follow up with their doctors. What might seem like a minor injury might get worse with time.

Carlton said bus accident victims and their families have legal rights.

While this particular incident is under investigation, in general a bus company has a duty of care to its passengers, Carlton said. This means they must check to make sure brakes, tires, lights and all equipment is functioning properly. And they also must keep records of bus maintenance. If an accident occurs, a company might be held legally responsible for the victims injuries if a mechanical problem is found to be a contributing factor.

NBC 4 reported that the bus was carrying 19 people on Sunday night when it crashed on its way to Pauma Casino, about 50 miles north of San Diego. The bus, unable to stop while entering a curve, slammed into a guard rail and then hit trees and a boulder on the right side of the road, according to NBC 4. Police said they are planning a full investigation to determine if the bus crash was due to mechanical error or driver error, NBC 4 reported.

NBC 4 reported that details of the injuries were not immediately available, but police said people had various complaints of pain.

Carlton said victims injured in bus accidents may be entitled to compensation for their losses. A personal injury lawyer can help them pursue monetary support and closure, Carlton said. The attorney for a bus accident victim also can help send a message that negligence by bus companies will not be tolerated. Companies need to be held accountable when they fail in their duty of care to passengers.
