Over the last few years more and more theater folks are using Arduino and other DIY computing platforms to light their shows. Why? Less expensive, more control, greater opportunities for fiddling, fixing, making, and re-making.
This is the future of theatrical technology. And of course the younglings know.
Here’s a video with some students from The Governor’s School of Engineering and Technology breaking down the basics of using Arduino in theatrical lighting — via The New Jersey Governor’s School of Engineering and Technology at Rutgers University
Despite record profits, more original scripted series were canceled in 2014 than even aired 15 years earlier. Not only are most of these failures unnecessary, they'll continue to escalate until networks update their metrics and business models for the digital era. The question is, will audiences stick around long enough?
I ate here while in the area on business so I am not a regular, but I found both the food and the service to be very good. They encourage you to order spicy food using a 1 to 5 scale for hotness. (I was a 5 - lots of heat but it was still full flavored and not just hot). VERY limited seating.... Maybe 5-6 tables... And not much on atmosphere, but prices are reasonable, food is good, and service is quick and friendly. I'd go here again.
We stayed here during a family vacation to Toronto. The great location made it an excellent choice. Our room was on the 12th floor and was quite comfortable for our family of 5 (3 teenagers). The fridge and microwave, as well as several nearby restaurants, made up for the fact that no breakfast was included. Parking in the nearby garage was convenient. Our only complaints were that the beds were VERY firm, and the elevators quite slow.

This restaurant was a great way for us to share the "up north" experience with our kids, who had never tasted a pastie after a lengthy car ride. I had the veggie and it was quite good. The authentic use of turnips gives the pastie a memorable and enjoyable flavor.
