Huffington Post - 6 months
I had the privilege to work for Sandler O'Neill & Partners at 2 World Trade Center on the 104th floor in New York City. So many great colleagues worked there, Kristy Irvine Ryan and Stacey McGowan were among the finest. Stacey McGowan was a talented equity trader who specialized in bank stocks, Kristy Irvine Ryan was her trusted and invaluable assistant. Both women possessed disarmingly beautiful smiles and an abundance of talent in the rough and tumble atmosphere of a Wall Street trading desk. Neither Stacey nor Kristy were shrinking violets in any way, manner or form and they were formidable assets to the firm. As talented as they were at work, their after work activities were as impressive. Kristy started Secret Smiles in 1998 with two of her closest friends, Meredith Hassett and Louise Ryan. Meredith was a teacher in Harlem who learned of a destitute, struggling single mother whose child was going to have a Grinch-like Christmas. She told the mother to write down what she nee ...

Mike Edwards: Eliminate the Electoral College
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The Electoral College is one of the most dangerous institutions in American politics today. The primary impact of the Electoral College is to give the citizens of some states more influence over the presidential election than citizens of other states. If you live in a Battleground State you are showered with attention. Your issues gain traction at the national level. You have political power. But if you happen to live in a Red State or a Blue State -- as do roughly 79% of Americans according to Nate Silver's electoral map -- then you are pretty much out of luck. Your vote doesn't matter. And when we say "your vote doesn't matter," we can actually quantify this. According to the Princeton Election Consortium a vote in Nevada this year (a small battleground state) is over one million times more likely to have an impact on this election than a vote in New Jersey (a large Blue state). This is horribly unjust. It makes a mockery of the principal of "one man, one vote" ...

Danny Oppenheimer: Obama's Olympic Bump
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
"Americans love a winner" -- General George S. Patton Michael Phelps. Abby Wambach. Kerri Walsh. Allyson Felix. Gabby Douglas. These are just a few of the many American winners from 2012 Olympic Games. But the biggest winner of all may be Barack Obama. The Olympic Games, for all of their spirit of international brotherhood and competition, seem peculiarly designed to induce patriotic spirit. Over the course of two weeks we cheer for hundreds of athletes draped in our national colors, struggling for a chance to break into tears while listening to our national anthem, and trying to defeat our international rivals. When we saw David Boudia finally break the Chinese stranglehold on diving gold medals by winning the men's 10m platform on the final night of competition, a lot of Americans went to bed that night feeling just a little more patriotic than if they had watched a Giants game instead. This widespread patriotic sentiment may affect more than just sales of ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Mike Edwards
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 2010
    Age 61
    Edwards was killed on the A381 road between Harbertonford and Halwell near where he lived in Totnes in Devon, on 3 September 2010, when a cylindrical hay bale weighing rolled down a hillside and collided with the van he was driving.
    More Details Hide Details A court case concluding on 19 November 2012 resulted in two defendants being found not guilty of health and safety charges relating to the accident.
  • FIFTIES
  • 1999
    Age 50
    It was probably the freedom and joy that he experienced playing Baroque music that led to a workshop in Devon of the European String Teachers Association (of which he was SW region chairman) in 1999, which the violinist Margaret Faultless was invited to direct.
    More Details Hide Details As a result of this, the Devon Baroque orchestra was formed and Mike played in virtually every one of its 100 or so concerts in the ten years before his death. In addition to his playing with Devon Baroque he was in demand from many folk and jazz as well as classical groups in the area, some of which he helped to form including Sicilienne, L'Ardito, Ashburton Cello ensemble, Devon Early Music Group, Compagnie Giulia, Daughters of Elvin, Ta Filia and Presence.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1972
    Age 23
    Edwards joined the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) in 1972 and played with the band from their first live gig in Croydon until he departed, of his own choosing, in January 1975.
    More Details Hide Details Previously he had had little interest in non-classical music, though he had played on recording sessions for Barclay James Harvest. Although his band-mates remembered him as a small, shy, broadly-smiling classicist in formal attire, his eccentric cello playing (fingering the strings with an orange or grapefruit) and bizarre costumes were a major ingredient of early ELO concerts: his cello solo spots, often The Dying Swan or Bach's Air, ended with his instrument exploding with the aid of pyrotechnics (Edwards actually mimed to a backing track using a specially rigged instrument). He contributed to the studio albums ELO 2, On the Third Day, and Eldorado, and the live album, The Night the Light Went On in Long Beach. He was replaced by Melvyn Gale. He changed his name to Pramada on becoming a sannyasin of Osho: the name means "divine contentment". During the 80s he lived in the group's large Medina commune in Suffolk, England as well as spells in Poona in India, Hamburg in Germany, and the US, and later in Vauxhall and Archway, north London. Subsequently he appeared for three years as a duo with dancer Avis von Herder. Their work and performances were based on improvisation and included the production of his composition Vampire Madonna at the Edinburgh Festival. In later years, his work involved stage plays, arrangements and cross-genre recordings such as the album "No goal but the path" by Terra Incognita.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1948
    Born
    Mike Edwards was born on 31 May 1948 in West London to Frank and Lillian Edwards.
    More Details Hide Details The family lived in South Ealing and he went to school at Grange Primary School. He passed the 11+ exam and went to Ealing Grammar School for Boys where an inspirational music teacher John Railton encouraged his love of music. His father was an amateur cellist, but died when Edwards was 14, leaving his mother to bring up Edwards and his older brother on her own. He studied the piano with John Railton, and cello with Maryse Chome-Wilson. He played in the Ealing Youth Orchestra. After school Edwards got a job in the Midland Bank for a year during which he was able to decide that his career should be in music and he was able to pass the entrance audition to the Royal Academy of Music to study the cello with Douglas Cameron and the viola de gamba with Dennis Nesbitt. He gained a LRAM in cello teaching. As well as developing his musical skills, the academy broadened his musical experience, encouraged by tutors such as John Dankworth, who introduced him to playing jazz and big band music.
