On Sunday, September 24th at 2 pm in the Maja Prentice Theatre, The Chamber Music Society of Mississauga (CMSM) presents a Triple Birthday, multimedia concert/event honouring and celebrating not only the 20th anniversary of CMSM, but also Glenn Gould’s 85th and Canada’s 150th. Dr. Penny Johnson has proposed a carefully selected repertoire for this live performance that includes some Bach, early Schoenberg, Beethoven, Shostakovich and R.Strauss.
In this ever-changing technological world, it's surprising that the taxi industry had remained relatively unchanged for decades since its inception. That is, until the introduction of Uber in 2009. This seemingly basic idea for a company quickly took the world by storm, establishing its place in the taxi industry after only being in business for a few years. The company really became a sensation starting in late 2015 leading up to the present day. But now in the year 2017, 8 years after Uber was founded, does it still hold up as a rival to traditional taxi companies, or has its popularity faded away like any other fad?
I recently conducted some in-depth research on one of the modern world’s favorite entertainment platforms, Youtube. While it seems like pointless fun on the surface, this website has grown drastically since its inception in 2005 and is now one of the most lucrative corporations on the planet. What makes Youtube so unique is that anyone can create and upload a video to be viewed by the public. Not only that, but creators have the ability to monetize their content, allowing them to earn a profit from videos based on view-count. This idea has even evolved to the point where many individuals have gained enough popularity on Youtube to transform it into a full time job.
But as with any growing marketplace, a few bad apples have emerged to scam the successful out of their hard earned money. The scam I’m referring to is known within the industry as a Youtube Network. These schemes are run by third party companies who seduce growing Youtube channels into signing away a certain percentage of their profits in exchange for promotion on their videos. And while some of these companies actually work to properly compensate their partners, such as Machinima or Maker Studios, many others simply serve as a means of scamming naïve Youtubers out of their money.
Transportation, the great equalizer. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you believe, you will need to get from point A to point B somehow. This becomes an essential part of life as we get older. From school to work to any number of other places in between, transportation is one of the primary facets of our existence. But what about those who don't drive and are still maturing into responsible adults? How do students cope with the need for transportation in the early stages of their lives?
This Saturday, over 100 youth from low-income and marginalized communities in Mississauga and nearby areas will be getting a firsthand look at the science happening at the University of Toronto Mississauga and its application to the real world.
