GRAND RAPIDS, MI – In a studio in Southwest Grand Rapids, people are hurling bowls, plates and vases, against a wall and smashing the items to pieces. And from those broken fragments, a work of art is being formed – a colorful mosaic phoenix rising from the ashes. It's therapy. And it's "Breakthrough," an ArtPrize entry with a mental health focus. The interactive art project is the creation of psychotherapists Laura Bennett and Randy Flood and artist Mark Bird. "It's been a dream of mine to create an initiative in the community that reaches the masses with a message," Bennett said. "Our goal is to destigmatize mental health challenges, to destigmatize pain, to normalize it. It's a human experience. The ArtPrize project began in May with the first phase, Break Down, in which people were invited to break things – tea pots, china dolls, cups – as a way of breaking free of emotions, memories and obstacles that prevent them from reaching their... People can bring their own items are use ones that are provided. Participants can write on an object something they want break free of – cancer, abuse, pain, unhealthy relationships, traumatic events – before hurling the object at the wall. For many, just acknowledging their anger is difficult, Bennett said. "We as therapists know that when people repress this anger, this energy, it does great damage," she said. "It's really about acknowledging what is real. And that acknowledgment is part of the healing process, the therapists said. "For the individual living with emotional pain, old habits, old ways of understanding have to be broken down before he or she can experience a more vibrant and healthy way of living," Flood said. "For the community, unhealthy paradigms, stereotypes and structures — like the stigma surrounding seeking counseling for mental wellness — have to be broken down before they can be. replaced with better, more beautiful and integrated ways of being... For the second phase of the project, "Reassemble," the broken materials are sorted – into piles of blues, reds, yellows, greens and sparkly pieces. They pieces are being assembled into a phoenix designed by Bird. The Greek mythological creature, which dies and is reborn from its ashes, was chosen as a symbol of human growth. Among the fragments are scraps of words that were written on the objects. Source: www.mlive.com

was upgraded by analysts at Zacks from a hold rating to a buy rating. They currently have $21. 00 target price on the stock. According to Zacks, “Aegerion reported encouraging second-quarter 2015 results on the back of strong Juxtapid sales. The drug is showing an uptrend supported by strong prescription growth and net patient addition. Moreover, the acquisition of Myalept from AstraZeneca in Jan 2015 is a synergistic fit for Aegerion’s portfolio. Myalept sales also boost the top line. The company maintained its revenue guidance for 2015. However, Aegerion is in early stages of business in ex-U. markets and its dependence on Juxtapid for growth is concerning. With the recent approval of PCSK9 inhibitor therapies like Praulent (in the U. S. ) and Repatha (in the EU), Juxtapid revenues may slow down. In addition, reimbursement issues in Europe remains an overhang. ” was upgraded by analysts at Zacks from a sell rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “DISH Network reported encouraging financial numbers in the second quarter of 2015, wherein both earnings and revenues beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate.
