I bet it happens to you all the time! You bump into a lighting person at the
theatre or crowded restaurant and they're the ones looking up at the ceiling
instead of where they are going. They are fascinated by the lighting only!
Another thing lighting people have in common are the tales of discovery.
Most people tell you that they caught the lighting bug quite by accident and
can often be heard retelling stories to our colleagues about how they first
entered into this dynamic industry. The ED50 introductory course is an exciting opportunity to help start a new
generation of "lighting people."

With the Grey Cup approaching, there are questions about whether the RBC Convention Centre will be ready for potential Grey Cup events.
President and CEO Klaus Lahr says everything is running smoothly.
"It's our expectation that the outside of the convention centre will be completely done," Lahr explains. "The landscaping will be done, there will be no equipment around the outside anymore."

Researchers tell us that, in the United States, 20 to 30 per cent of a building's annual energy bill is wasted. With all the advances we've seen in the last couple of decades in building automation, despite all the sensors used in modern buildings, despite all the data they generate, 20 to 30 per cent of energy is simply gone.
Americans, on average, spend 90 per cent of their days indoors. In Canada, the figure might be even higher, given the longer winters we have. So indoor comfort is important.
Investment in clean energy in Canada climbed 88 per cent in 2014 to nearly $11 billion, according to a report from Clean Energy Canada.
Almost half that investment — about $4.5 billion — was in Ontario which adopted a green energy plan in 2009 and has been investing in solar and wind.
But other provinces also moved forward to adopt renewables, including Quebec with $3.9 billion in investment, mainly in wind, British Columbia with $1.34 billion in hydro and Alberta with $930 million in wind investment.
