Favorable Reception 'LINK'
Matilda Bruckner's work on hospitality in romance inspired me to reflect on the related topic of the favorable reception of strangers at court. If hospitality is one side of the coin, a convention that requires hosts to respond favorably to those who request lodging and sustenance, the other side is what the stranger at court does, especially those behaviors that lead to court admiration, appreciation, and a warm reception. In such cases the outsider does not threaten or alienate, as one might imagine, but enhances the court by increasing its courtliness and, in turn, its prestige.
Wedding receptions and wedding bands have been parodied by the likes of Adam Sandler, Vince Vaughn and Kristen Wiig; there is even a new TV show dedicated to the art. But, in reality, the amount of energy required to hype up a crowd of guests ranging from children to octogenarians on the same dance floor is truly a talent. "If you don't already have that energy, you can't fake it," says drummer and vocalist Cheryl Porter from Chattanooga's perennial party favorite "You have to love what you do; from that you are able to express and create fully."
According to Valitus Edwards, Love, Peace and Happiness can play up to 300 songs on demand. This living and breathing jukebox lists the top 10 reception song requests as:"The Way You Look Tonight" by Frank Sinatra"What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong"You've Lost that Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers"Moondance" by Van Morrison"Brick House" by the Commodores"My Girl" by the Temptations"Shout" by the Isley Brothers"Billy Jean" by Michael Jackson"Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond"At Last" by Etta JamesFor more information visit their page at gigsalad.com.
That energy and love of performing drives Porter as well as the other five members of Love, Peace and Happiness as they fuel the party of not only wedding receptions but fundraisers, proms and other events. The band began its reign in 1975 when ML King Boulevard resembled something closer to a cultural center like Bourbon Street, according to original LP&H member Valitus Edwards. Life eventually sent the band members in various directions, but in the 1990s, life - or, in this case, Allied Arts - brought them back together to perform in Chattanooga again. "It was an accident we got back into music," Edwards laughs. "Our fans won't let us stop."
In fact, Edwards says that it is not uncommon for some brides-to-be to pick their band before they even pick their man. And with good reason. Every girl dreams of her big day, and the best brides know that while the ceremony is for the happy couple, the reception is meant to show the guests a good time. Whether you measure that good time by the length of the conga line or the number of tipsy bridesmaids making their way to dance on stage, the band strikes the balance that moves the moment from a formal function to a rocking good time.
Overall, views of France are generally positive in Africa, with half or more expressing favorable opinions in Senegal (82%), Ghana (66%), Kenya (57%), and Nigeria (51%). Two-thirds of Nigerian Christians see France favorably, while only 36% of Nigerian Muslims say the same. Four-in-ten Ugandans have a positive opinion, but 46% did not offer a view.
The Hospital of the Faculty of Medical Sciences of the State University of Campinas is implementing an Integrated Health Care Programme, whose objectives are early detection of risk factors of several diseases and the evaluation of the patient's reproductive health at the moment of the first visit to the Hospital. The initial results of this program encouraged us to try to apply it all to our own clientele. The present lack of material resources and qualified manpower leads us to concentrate all our attention on the patient's immediate complaints. This situation indicated to us that the only way to implement the program should be by means of a computerized questionnaire able to detect diseases and risk factors early. This paper presents the preliminary results of the application of computerized questionnaires to evaluate health risks. The authors conclude: The application of a computerized questionnaire met with very favorable reception by the clientele; In some segments of the population, the questionnaire can be answered by the patients in direct interaction with the computer; Programmes which evaluate risk factors need to be carefully revised before being put to use; The system operates on a relatively low cost basis, which could bring undeniable benefits to primary health care.

On September 24, 1918, French Ambassador Jules Jusserand (on behalf of the Republic of France) presented the U.S. Senate with two Sèvres vases (see also 46.00008.002) as a token of "sisterly gratitude" for America's favorable reception of the Viviani-Joffre Mission and "timely help" in World War I. The Senate Chamber was crowded for the ceremony, during which the "French Tricolor and the Stars and Stripes were displayed side by side" on the dais. Vice President Thomas R. Marshall accepted the vases on behalf of the Senate and assured Ambassador Jusserand of America's "determination to fight with the French until justice [is served]."
