We’ve been busy and we haven’t been blogging! Readings, readings, readings!

Fire On Earth

We kicked of this year’s Breaking Ground Reading Series in late August with HPF Patrick Gabridge’s powerful historical drama Fire On Earth which chronicles the struggles of William Tyndale and his friends as they illegally translate the Bible into English.  Recently, Patrick wrote a couple of posts about life as a playwright in Boston on his blog,  Check it out.

Long Season returns!

Right after Labor Day, collaborators Chay Yew and Fabian Obispo headed back to the rehearsal room in New York to rework their epic musical about the lives and loves of Filipino cannery workers in 1920’s Alaska.  They ended up with a really tight structure and some fantastic new songs.

Making Up The Truth by Jack Hitt

Directed by Jessica Bauman
Friday, September 24th at 7pm
Calderwood Pavillion at the BCA

Jack Hitt tells extravagant, true tales — a yarn about the childhood neighbor who was one of the first men to become a woman, or his apartment super with a deadly secret identity. But, the stories always lead people to ask, did that really happen? The Atlantic Monthly recently called This American Life contributer Jack Hitt "one of America's best storytellers." In his new show, Making Up the Truth, he shares his stories and learns that, of all things, new scientific breakthroughs point to an answer to that question: Do extraordinary things only happen to certain people, or do we all swim unaware in a sea of the uncanny and unbelievable?

Jack Hitt is a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine, Harper's Magazine, and public radio's This American Life.


  1. This is getting a bit more seuibctjve, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  3. We can only hope this is true. If it is, it will be a game changer for Broadway and for dowotnwn. What dowotnwn needs now is more hotel rooms. What broadway needs is healthy development and and emphasis on it becoming a major destination like Beale or Burbon Street. [url=]tdvjliitq[/url] [link=]gzrcycsmkq[/link]

  6. The way that I see this is that the government is encairogung young people to go against their parents’ counsel. Did it ever occur to you, Jake, that there are many young people who abstain simply because their parents taught them that pre-marital sex is immoral? The government contradicts the parents’ counsel by saying, in effect, that premarital sex might not be the best choice, but it is ok if you protect yourself. Isn’t that the message? My children are raised, but I would resent any organization that went against my religious or personal moral beliefs behind my back by providing contraception to my children.Since when does the governmnent’s authority supercede a parent’s God-given right to raise a child according to core moral/rligious beliefs? mileage credit card airline
  7. I strongly believe that the Yonge corridor needs a subway and not an LRT system like some suggest on this site. Though LRT maybe more feasible in terms of cost it doesn’t address that type of commuting pattern that exist in that area. LRTs are meant for local trips and a majority of the people coming in from York Region will be using system for long haul trips. Also keep in mind the VIVA already plans several LRT/BRT projects for the Yonge/Highway 7 corridor beyond where the new subway line will be, so I don’t think local transit be so much of an issue in York Region anyways. My only issue is the phasing of this project in relation to the DRL and the Go Express Rail. I would hope Metrolinx prioritizes the DRL first followed by the Yonge Subway extension and then the GO Express Line.On a side note is it me or has anyone noticed that with all the transit announcements we’ve been hearing about over the last 3 yrs (starting with the Spadina subway extension back in 2006) not one of these projects has started construction. I’m sorry but i don’t consider a couple of engineer marks on Sheppard Ave E progress, or better yet a sewage pipe replacement that would probably need replacement anyways before it burst in the winter “subway construction”.Politicians say most of these project will completed by 2020 … I highly doubt it. I’ll be surprised if even half of these transit initiatives are completed.Steve: The Spadina line is under construction. Utilities relocation is always part of any subway project, and you can’t dig the tunnel until you get everything else out of the way. The tunnel boring machines have been ordered. Stations on the line are in the design stage (there was a big debate at the TTC about Steeles West on October 29 about which I will report in a separate post). Opening date is 2016.The big work that has to be done on Sheppard East is the grade separation at Agincourt. That is needed whether or not there is an LRT line, but the local businesses are in a snit and tar the LRT line with what is really a GO issue. Service is planned to begin in 2013.The EAs are still in progress for Finch and Eglinton, and the latter has several major design issues that will come back for public review later this fall. Finch service is planned to begin in 2015. Eglinton will probably open in stages, given its length, from 2016 through 2019.The SRT project is almost but not quite officially now an LRT project, and that triggers a redesign. The TTC wasted some time by focussing on an RT-centric design and public presentation, but they are now in the final stages of settling the details of the LRT project with Metrolinx (according to TTC’s Gary Webster at teh October 29 meeting). The SRT is planned to re-open after reconstruction and extension in 2016.Other major projects include the work on various rail corridors (some now underway) and a major reconfiguration of Union Station that will begin in 2010, with a target completion of late 2014. This will provide over double the existing passenger handling capacity for both the subway and railway (GO) stations. online colleges
  8. “Finally, on a side note, I think Metrolinx needs to determine which proposed rapid transit routes will suit which need. If you look at the current map, they show express/commuter rail > subway > LRT/BRT. This is great for determining capacity, but there are many proposed LRT/BRTs in the region that will exceed the speeds of rail projects. I think they should draw up a map of travel design. Local rapid transit (999m and under – Bloor-Danforth subway, Transit City), intermediate rapid transit (1000m to 1999m – Spadina subway, Yonge subway through midtown), and regional rapid transit (more than 2km – GO express rail, Yonge subway through North Toronto). This way we can see which lines will meet which proposed purpose, and can plan their future commutes and developments based upon those plans.”Kevin saysSee the problem with metrolinx is that when they came out with there RTP it was just a bunch of pretty lines on a map of the GTA. It didn’t address what kind of technology would be used for each line and why. That’s how we got into that whole debate regarding Eglinton (LRT VS ICTS). “what a waste of time”. On the other hand one shouldn’t put all the blame on metrolinx, for example. When Toronto launched Transit City the plan was also very vague. All we knew was that all the pretty lines they drew up would have some sort of LRT functionality. Two years later the TTC is finding themselves in hole because they realized that at least two of their lines maybe forced underground even though ridership doesn’t warrants it with the exception of Don Mills. Lastly I will like to address that like Metrolinx the TTC also failed to study each line in relation to the entire system because if they did they would have figured out that adding an Eglinton and Finch LRT to the system would have probably put the Yonge subway over capacity regardless if the Richmond hill subway was built.Steve: The only underground section added to Transit City officially at this point is the one on Sheppard from Don Mills to Consumers. Eglinton was always going to be underground in the central section. The south end of Don Mills will have to go underground, but if it does, it should do so as subway, not LRT for reasons already discussed here at length.Transit City was designed as a network, and the expectation was that it would do far more to serve trips that were not core-oriented than adding to subway demand. Metrolinx forecast much higher demands on the TC lines than the TTC did, and this was used to “justify” the so-called need for ICTS on Eglinton. In fact, Metrolinx has all but renounced their demand estimates certainly with respect to the Georgetown and Richmond Hill corridors in recent documents. Their model grossly overstated demand on the transit networks. car cheap insurance viagra online Maryland vehicle insurance comparison
