Forget Chopsticks; Amateur Pianists Show Real Chops

Thu, 2016-06-30 10:11

But some competitors don’t follow the pattern. Semifinalist Sean Sutherland, 39, grew up in St. Vincent and The Grenadines, and he fell in love with the piano early on. By the time he was fifteen, however, he had exhausted the piano teaching resources available on St. Vincent. He kept up his musical activities by becoming the arranger and manager for a “boy band” (one of his bandmates was Kevin Lyttle, now a highly successful pop singer). After a three-year lapse in his piano study, Sutherland enrolled at MIT, receiving degrees in music and electrical engineering/computer science.

What Makes Public Disclosure Effective?

Thu, 2016-06-30 10:03

Hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) is a technology employed in the production of oil and gas from unconventional shale formations. Over the last decade, tens of thousands of fracking wells have been drilled worldwide. Fracking often takes place in relatively populated areas, thus posing an array of risks to public health such as water contamination and induced seismicity. In addition to inspecting and monitoring these risks, regulators now face the challenge of keeping the public well informed about their extent.

Quebecers closely watching Brexit vote results

Some Quebecers like Angus Bell are ready to pull an all-nighter to find out whether the United Kingdom will leave the European Union.

"I am very nervous. It's another referendum where it's 50-50," says Bell, who is the owner and founder of a multi-sports centre in Montreal called Ministry of Cricket and Other Homeless Sports.
