Jill Kargman Climbs a "Stairway to Cabaret" at the Café Carlyle
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Not sure whether or not Jill Kargman would riff on the Led Zepplin classic "Stairway to Heaven," I had to admit, the comedienne, creator of Bravo's Odd Mom Out, and author of Sprinkle Glitter on my Grave brought something different to the Café Carlyle. The set list, for example, featured only eight songs. Kargman is gifted at stand up, weaving songs and stories together into a funny, entertaining evening, spoken from the perspective of an East Side mom at odds with the prevailing ethos. Tales of a Southern nanny named Sue, a Bulgarian make up artist, and a trip to Disneyworld gave new meaning to Jon Bon Jovi/ Richie Sambora's "Wanted Dead or Alive," the Alice Cooper, Desmond Child, John McCurry hit "Poison," and Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee's "Girls, Girls, Girls." Eschewing cabaret convention, Kargman did away with a ceremonial introduction to her band: musical director Marco Paguia on piano under the direction of Trip Cullman, flying by their mention. And, there was no enco ...

Mock Mars Mission Crew Tests 'Smart Shirt' for Astronauts
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
An astronaut "smart shirt" — one that could someday beam biometric information back to ground controllers to keep an eye on a spacefarer's health — is now on a space mission of sorts. The crew now conducting a mock Mars mission at the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS) facility uses Hexoskin frequently to look at how well crewmembers are coping in the harsh, high-altitude environment. "Crewmembers have used Hexoskin to track performance in EVAs [extravehicular activities] while exploring the geology of the surrounding volcanic terrain … During EVAs and workouts, crewmembers monitor heart and respiratory rates on their Hexoskin applications and applaud each other for reaching new maximum levels," HI-SEAS chief scientist Jocelyn Dunn told Space.com via email. "While living in the confinement of the HI-SEAS dome, the crew improves their physical health with workouts ranging from yoga to plyometrics to resistance-band strength training to kickboxing to cardio workouts ...

Mock Mars Mission Starts Saturday in Utah Desert
Yahoo News - about 2 years
A simulated Mars mission kicks off Saturday (Feb. 7) in Utah, and its seven crewmembers hope the experience helps them prepare for a real Red Planet expedition a decade from now. All seven explorers — who will spend two weeks at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS), near the Utah town of Hanksville — are astronaut candidates for the Mars One project, which aims to launch four pioneers to the Red Planet in 2024 as the vanguard of a permanent colony. "It’s not a coincidence that the whole crew is comprised of Mars One candidates — that was by design," said crewmember Kellie Gerardi, business development specialist at California-based aerospace firm Masten Space Systems. "I can only speak for myself, but my participation on a Mars One crew was an effort to show that there is so much more behind the candidates," Gerardi told Space.com via email.

Editor's Note: In the Utah desert, scientists are attempting to recreate what a real-life mission to Mars might be like, and SPACE.com contributor Elizabeth Howell is along for the ride. HANKSVILLE, Utah — In the desert here, the nearly full moon was so bright that we didn't even need a flashlight to walk to the Mars Desert Research Station Musk Observatory. About 100 feet away from our Habitat, two crew members had captured (the Andromeda Galaxy M31) in the telescope at the Mars Society observatory, which is a tiny room just barely big enough to fit a crew of five or six.

Simulating Surgery On a Mock Mars Mission

Editor's Note: In the Utah desert, scientists are attempting to recreate what a real-life mission to Mars might be like, and SPACE.com contributor Elizabeth Howell is along for the ride. HANKSVILLE, Utah — Within days of beginning our two-week stay at the Mars Desert Research Station, crew members already encountered minor medical problems — a sore back and a cold or flu among them. Take this six-member crew and put them on a 900-day mission to Mars, and it's possible that something could happen two or three times that would require the use of anesthesia, according to Crew 133 health and safety officer Matthieu Komorowski.

Mock Mars Mission: Learning New Skills for Red Planet Living
Yahoo News - about 3 years
After a week here at the Mars Desert Research Station simulating Red Planet exploration, however, I've learned that it takes only one ingredient to slow things down: novelty. One day, several of us took turns quoting lines from the movie "Fargo." We also recount fun stories from the field, like the time a crewmember fell down in the mud in a spacesuit and despite paddling on all fours, couldn't get up without help. Just before I entered the "Hab," at the Mars Desert Research Station, which is run by the nonprofit Mars Society, somebody asked me if I was scared to spend two weeks locked in a 1,200-square-foot (111 square meters) facility with five strangers.

Mock Mars Mission: Eating On The Red Planet
Yahoo News - about 3 years
That was a problem I faced early in my rotation at Utah's Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) when another crewmember and I were put on food duty. Since the role of MDRS is to simulate Mars exploration and make us feel like astronauts, we're encouraged to solve problems ourselves. There's a lot to learn as we keep ourselves fed at this facility, which is run by the nonprofit Mars Society. On our last stop before "Mars," the six members of MDRS Crew 133 wandered a Walmart in Grand Junction, Col. Most of us were on the hunt for our favorite junk food.

Wanted: Volunteers for Yearlong Mock Mars Mission in Canadian Arctic
Yahoo News - over 3 years
If you're ready to take a timeout from your life and spend a year living in the Arctic on a simulated Mars mission, the Mars Society wants to hear from you. The non-profit group, which advocates for manned exploration of the Red Planet, has released its requirements for the six volunteers who will be expected to spend 12 months at the society's Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station on Canada's Devon Island, which is about 900 miles (1,450 kilometers) from the North Pole, beginning in July 2014. "Dedication to the cause of human Mars exploration is an absolute must, as conditions are likely to be very difficult and the job will be very trying," Mars Society officials said in a description of the simulated mission, which is called Mars Arctic 365. Human Mars exploration generated a lot of headlines last year when the Netherlands-based non-profit Mars One proposed a one-way trip to the Red Planet that would land in 2023.

Updated 1:44 pm, Thursday, June 13, 2013 TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Shares of diagnostic test maker Myriad Genetics Inc. surged and then dove Thursday after the Supreme Court handed the company a partial victory in a battle over the validity of patents underlying its lucrative test for genes linked to high risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Myriad, based in Salt Lake City, sells a popular test for the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes linked to hereditary risk of breast and ovarian cancer — the only test currently available because of its patents. Myriad's general counsel, Rick Marsh, told The Associated Press in an interview that the ruling invalidates only five Myriad patent claims, which involve isolated bits of naturally occurring DNA.

Mock Mars Mission: Mars Society Eyes Training Program In Arctic To Simulate Life On Red Planet
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
By: Clara Moskowitz Published: 06/03/2013 10:56 AM EDT on SPACE.com The question of how people can live and work together well on a mission to Mars may turn out to be one of the biggest challenges of deep-space exploration. To simulate the experience of a crew stuck inside cramped quarters under stressful conditions, a nonprofit is planning a one-year mock Mars mission in the Arctic. The mission, to begin in July 2014, is being planned by the Mars Society, an organization dedicated to manned exploration of the Red Planet. Six crew members will spend a full year living inside the Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station (FMARS), a 25-foot-tall (7.6 meters), 27-foot-wide (8.3 m) cylindrical habitat on Devon Island in the high-latitude Canadian Arctic. Situated at 75 degrees north, roughly 900 miles from the North Pole, Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station is located adjacent to a 20 kilometer meteor impact crater in the midst of a polar desert that is known to represe ...

  • 2015
    He is known for being the lead guitarist for the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe until the band retired in 2015.
    More Details Hide Details Mars was born in Terre Haute, Indiana, but his family moved to Huntington, Indiana soon afterward. Before he was 9 years old, his family relocated again, this time to Garden Grove, California. He dropped out of high school and began playing guitar in a series of unsuccessful blues-based rock bands throughout the 1970s, taking on menial day jobs. After nearly a decade of frustration with the California music scene, he reinvented himself, changing his name from Robert Deal to Mick Mars and dyeing his hair jet black, hoping for a fresh start.

    In 2010 he co-wrote a song with Escape the Fate for the band's self-titled album, which was instead withheld from the album and reserved for a later release.
    More Details Hide Details For most of his professional career, Mars has openly struggled with ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic, inflammatory form of arthritis that mainly affects the spine and pelvis. It was initially diagnosed when he was 17 years old and has increasingly impaired his movement and has caused him a great deal of pain. This led to hip-replacement surgery at the end of 2004. Over the years, the illness has caused his lower spine to seize up and freeze completely solid, " causing scoliosis in [his] back and squashing [him] further down and forward until [he] was a full shorter than [he] was in high school."
  • THIRTIES
  • 2008
    Mars played guitar on the title track of Hinder's 2008 album Take It to the Limit, and contributed a guitar solo to the song "Into the Light" by Papa Roach, on their 2009 album Metamorphosis.

  • 2007
    Mars has contributed songwriting to John LeCompt, the former member of Evanescence and the other band members of Machina, and to the Swedish band Crashdïet. Their second album entitled, The Unattractive Revolution, was released on October 3, 2007 and featured two songs co-written by Mars.
