  40 years of Alberta Theatre ProjectsPDF files may take a moment to load

Alberta Theatre Projects recently celebrated its 40th year on May 28, with an evening of staged readings and festivities at their home in the Martha Cohen Theatre in the Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts — a theatre that was designed for ATP when the Centre for the Performing Arts was constructed in 1985. The Martha Cohen Theatre is a big move from where the company began 40 years ago at the Canmore Opera House in Heritage Park, the log cabin that seated an audience of 198 people.

  Cycling in Calgary offers challenges and rewardsPDF files may take a moment to load

The most convenient way of getting around Calgary is undoubtedly by car. As the city has expanded outwards, the need to own a vehicle as an efficient and reliable mode of transportation has increased. But lost in the commute up and down Crowchild or Deerfoot Trail is a way of seeing and getting around Calgary that is often ignored by motorists.

There is no pastime that unites this vast and diverse country under one national identity quite like hockey does. 
Canadians see hockey as a way of taking the curse of six cruel months of winter and turning it into a blessing. The rugged and resilient nature of the Canadian spirit is reflected in the signature physicality of our game.

  Spun: Belle StarPDF files may take a moment to load

While listening to country radio last weekend I was generally disenchanted with the new, repetitive music I was hearing. However, one song, “New Girl Now,” kept coming on and I began to enjoy it more and more every time I heard it. The DJ said it was by Belle Starr, whom I had never heard of. I looked them up on YouTube and found a number of songs with strong, haunting fiddles, and moving, three-part harmonies. They have a folksy, root vibe to them, while still being modern.

  Film Review: Now You See MePDF files may take a moment to load

Now You See Me is a film that plays out with a disdain for its audience, always keeping them at arm’s length in hopes that the viewers will never figure out what secrets are hiding beneath its surface.

Road cycling is becoming a more popular sport. While some motorists may curse at the cyclists they see pedaling down a highway on the narrow shoulder, the cyclists who are out there know the benefits and enjoyment that they experience while riding on the highway. 


Road cycling has grown in popularity in recent years because it is an enjoyable, yet minimal impact activity.
