9 To 5 Showings Were Not A Disappointment

The musical 9 to 5, which started on Jan. 22 to 25, from the times 7:30 p.m. to around 9:00 on Thursday to Saturday, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, the last day of the play, was amusing and a great way to spend any of those evenings. Allied campus theatre’s production was exactly what I expected. The play is based on the 1981 film, and Resnick and Colin Higgins had their own musical on Broadway from 2008 through 2009.

Windows 8.1: Was It A Flop?

Windows 8 was released on October 26, 2012 by Microsoft as an attempt to change how people use computers. They achieved this using a new user interface called “Metro”. In Windows 8, users could install programs through their proprietary “app store”. Microsoft also unveiled “Onedrive”; a service that gives the user 15 gigabytes of free online storage. The operating system was not without its flaws, and so consumers pushed for Windows 8.1. The update lowered the system requirements for the operating system so that lower end computers could run it smoothly. Thanks to the update, users can now 3-D print, use wi-fi direct, use miracast technology, and use monitors that support NVme.

Tim Burton Throughout The Ages

For the past 30 years in the movie industry, there has never been a director so distinctive at combining the elements of horror and comedy other than Tim Burton. Burton is the man behind such movies as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the 1989 version of Batman, staring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholosan. Though some may say Burton’s career is ending, I digress, as I believe Mr. Burton still has many cinematic masterpieces to come. The future of Burton’s career shall be judged entirely on the continuum of his movies, from the very first motion picture he produced to the movies he is currently producing.

We want women in media for the same reason we want women in Senate; we want someone to portray us and what we want in characters correctly.
