Entertainment

Lights, Sounds, and Seesaws

Brooke Runser

Haven't been on a seesaw in a while? Here's a good excuse to hop on one. Impulse, an outdoor seesaw art installation of light and sound, is doing a pop-up at the Scott Family Amazeum in Bentonville.

  • Tell me more: The installation is an interactive work comprised of 12 light and sound enabled seesaws that change when in motion.
  • Open day and night, no admission needed. You can see the seesaws from now until May 10. The exhibit was first presented in 2015 in Montreal and has since made its way to Bentonville for your enjoyment.

Community

The Community Award Goes To...

Rockin' Baker, a community bakery located in Fayetteville, trains and employs individuals who are on the Autism spectrum.

  • Daymara Baker, founder of Rockin' Baker started a Chef's Challenge where local well known chefs in NWA provide the students with a few ingredients that they turn into a specialty bread.
  • Participating Chefs include Chef Simon from Blake Street House in Bentonville, Chef Chrissy from Mocking Bird Kitchen in Fayetteville, and more to come!

You can listen to the encouraging story HERE. You can learn more about Rockin' Baker by visiting their site, HERE.

Healthcare

Mercy Does it Again

And now they're just showing off... Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas in Rogers receives another award they can hang on the fridge - an A grade from the Leapfrog Group.

  • Leapfrog Group: a nonprofit watchdog (or better yet, watchfrog) organization that serves as a voice for health care consumers and purchasers using their influence to positively change healthcare.
  • The grade considers a combination of metrics in its ranking system, including the hospital's error prevention acumen, injuries, accidents, and infections. The grade runs from A to F. Just like in school, you don't want to end up in a F category.

You can find the full list of hospital ratings HERE.
