Cataract City

Friday, 22 July, 2016

@TitleCataract City is a tourist town with an uncanny hold over those born within its borders, a place with more to it than first meets that eye: behind the gaudy storefronts and sidewalk vendors, past the hawkers of tourist t-shirts and souvenirs, are the townspeople who toil at the Bisk, the local cookie factory. And beneath that crumbling facade are the truly desperate: those drawn to gritty alleyways on both sides of the U.S. - Canada border, inhabitants of a shadow world that runs on money exchanged over dog races, bare-knuckle brawls, and nighttime smuggling.

This Is Your Brain on Silence

Friday, July 22, 2016

“Silence, Please” has proven to be the most popular theme in Finland’s rebranding, and one of the most popular pages on VisitFinland.com. Maybe silence sells because, so often, we treat it as a tangible thing—something easily broken, like porcelain or crystal, and something delicate and valuable.

Cultivating an Idea: The Green Wall at the John and Bonnie Buhler Library

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

A project management assignment planted a seed that bloomed at the Roblin Centre's John and Bonnie Buhler Library. Library Technician Rosemary Woodby with the support of a Program Innovation Fund (PIF) was able to procure two six foot tall, self-watering planters. A partnership with the Greenspace Horticultural students and their instructor, Ruth Robb, supplied the plants. Using the knowledge they have acquired as part of the Horticulture Practice course, the students planned the design and layout; chose and grew the plants and on a bright sunny Apr 13th installed them in the planters. The Reading Room's trademark sunlight takes care of the rest. >> Read More
