Symphony Silicon Valley presents Bach & Mahler Saturday May 6 at 8pm and Sunday May 7 at 2:30pm at The California Theater 45 So. First Street in downtown San Jose Mahler’s Fifth is an epic journey that begins with a funeral march, endures turmoil, dances with abandon, confesses deep love, and ends finally in glory. It is a great testament to adversity surmounted, expressed in luxuriant orchestral colors and unforgettable melodies. The stage is set with an orchestral version of Bach’s Chaconne (originally for solo violin), in which a brief musical idea undergoes a series of transformations to become a statement of monumental proportion. Conductor Tatsuya Shimono Born in Kagoshima in 1969, Tatsuya Shimono cemented his international reputation as a conductor by winning First Prize at the 47th Besançon International Competition

Story Time Lived to Write About It By Terry Denevan Whenever I see a eucalyptus tree, I think back to my happy childhood summers in Long Beach, California. Atlantic Avenue, with two northbound and two southbound lanes, was a block away from our home. A stately grove of mature eucalyptus, fifty feet in height, lined the top of the fifteen-foot bluff paralleling the roadway. Those trees, unlike some eucalyptus, had smooth white trunks. Their gray slender leaves were five or six inches long. Seed pods, abundant and distinctive, littered the ground. My brother Dave and I, along

with neighborhood acquaintances, often sought out challenging thrills. One summer, in the mid-1950s, Dave suggested that we and neighbor Slim McCracket, climb a massive eucalyptus and attach a rope so that we might leap off the bluff and swing over Atlantic Avenue. At the time there wasn’t a second thought about wrapping our arms and legs around a tree and heading for the sky. A possibility of falling never entered our minds. The unwritten rule was hold on tight. Slim, a Morgan Hill $799,495 Hayward $519,000 Pleasanton $295,000 daredevil-of-akid, volunteered to climb the tree and attach the rope. Dave provided a 4 bed 3 bath 4 bed 2 bath 3 bed 2 bath 1900 sq feet 1800 sq feet 1,296 sq feet foot hold with interlaced More than 35 years of experience. fingers and I lent my Call the office that knows where the deals are. shoulder for Slim to start his assent.

but with ease, the kid scrambled upward like Tarzan. Eventually he stopped and then looked down. “A little higher!” Dave yelled. Slim, a one-time Boy Scout never progressed beyond Tenderfoot, but he so securely tied the rope that an Eagle Scout would have given his approval. High in the eucalyptus, Slim whooped, “Up here, the cars look small!” Then, our friend put his face to the limb that held him, and added, “I think I’m going to stay up here for a while and take a nap.” He closed his eyes and gave a fake snore. With a passing glance and a perfunctory pull, Slim gave the knotted-rope one last bit of inspection. In less than a minute he started his descent. Hugging the tree, he quickly shimmied down. At the ground-end of the rope, we looped it around a sixinch piece of wood securing it with several well tied knots. We now

Valley Extra Our Corner of the Valley By Scott Taper CORRECTION: In my last article, my inaugural article, I wrote that June Riley, CEO and founder of VCTaskforce graduated from Boston University. It was Northeastern University. Also, the meetings in San Francisco take place in 4 Embarcadero, not 1 Embarcadero. Now on to new business. Back in 1980 Dr. William D. Bradford, a young assistant professor at Stanford Business School wrote a monogram, a book on one subject that explored the effects of the newly granted variable rate mortgages that could be offered by savings and loans and banks. That monogram was written by Dr. Bradford as part of a summer project he performed as Summer Scholar for the San Francisco office of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board. It was entitled

“Mortgage-Backed Bonds for Savings and Loan Associations: Management and Public Policy Issues” (Bradford, W. D., 1980). His findings were profoundly predictive of the later turmoil in the real estate housing markets slowdowns in 1989 and predicting housing market crash. In Dr. Bradford’s writings, there were predictions that that mortgaged backed bonds could be severely affected because of the use of variable rate mortgages to attract buyers into home markets when there were shortages of qualified buyers. He correctly predicted that abuse of variable rate mortgages would eventually lead to a catastrophic collapse of the real estate market in the late 1990s or early 2000s. I know these facts because he entrusted his only copy to me when I was preparing my capstone team marketing

paper for my MBA at Santa Clara University. I, unfortunately, never returned it to Dr. Bradford and later I found that it was indeed out of print. This brings me to my point, which is avoiding variable rate mortgages, when possible. They are great for some home buyers in an undervalued market with expected future growth. Past experience has proven that variable rate mortgages are abused instruments

Today’s fixed interest rates are historically low, enabling very low payments for higher value properties. When you buy, think long term. NOTE: After not receiving tenure at Stanford, Dr. Bradford went on be associate Dean

of the Business School at University of Maryland and later Dean at the University of Washington, where he now enjoys the status of dean emeritus, still teaching and writing. Reference: Bradford, W.

Reader’s Nook BEDTIME BOOK’S ADVENTURES MAKE GOING TO SLEEP EASY AND FUN Local Author’s New Book Sparks Children’s Imaginations

Many parents struggle with getting their children to sleep, but one method is always a good go-to: reading a story before bed. With so many children’s books out there, it can be tough to pick the best one to say goodnight with. Author Ursula Taylor makes this decision easy with her

new book, DreamO-Doodle, which is designed to help children activate their imaginations so they might experience more colorful and creative dreams, and a happier sleep. Ursula Taylor’s DreamO-Doodle helps children get excited about going to bed. Encouraging youngsters to explore the wonderful, imagine the impossible, and dive into fantasy, DreamO-Doodle creates a nighttime atmosphere that holds children’s interest while setting the perfect mood to ease into sleep. The book invites children to become explorers,

heroes, princesses, astronauts, and more, while encountering magical creatures, dinosaurs, robots, and a variety of other characters, before finally returning to the familiar faces of their loved ones. My 2yr old son loves this book, he loves picking out all the different animals, robots etc on each page & says the rhymes along with me. The books illustration is so colorful it keeps him engaged the whole time. Every night when he goes to bed I ask ‘what story do you want’ and his reply is always Dream o Doodle. - Pamela Maguire, Amazon Customer An enchanting book! The rhymes and images

The rhymes are fun and it is colorfully illustrated. I bought them for my daughter’s friends at her birthday party and they all loved them! - Paula Novio Mallon, Amazon Customer We just love this book! (… ) My boys choose it out of the entire library. Thanks so much! - Kristen Wallace, Amazon Customer “(…)Roberts’ vivid illustrations provide engaging details without becoming too busy. Taylor’s choice of dream subjects covers many areas of perennial interest to children. (…) And the idea of sending children off to sleep with an upbeat

suggestion of the vast possibilities of the dream world is original and empowering (…). Most of the dreams give both boys and girls active roles, and the overall effect remains captivating and fun. A short, charming bedtime book for children that stresses the positive power of dreams”. - Kirkus Review Dream-O-Doodle by Ursula Taylor is available for order from most major online book retailers, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon.
