Poutine for poverty

The University of Ottawa chapter of Building Walls of Wisdom (BuildWoW) competed in Smoke’s Poutinerie’s campus edition of the world poutine-eating competition Oct. 13. The reward is a $2,500 sponsorship from the poutine restaurant that the chapter would donate to help fund the building of a school in Nicaragua.

The end of film—in its literal sense

Since 1889, movies everywhere have been shot, distributed, and projected at 24 frames per second on 35-mm film, but come January 2013, all new projects will be shot digitally. By the end of this year, studios and distributors will no longer be producing or shipping film prints. This means that the Mayfair Theatre will have to drop $55,000 on a digital cinema package (DCP) to stay in business.
