#The Big Picture App (abbrev. as #TBPA) is a collaborative effort by Merideth Taylor and students at St. Mary's College of Maryland.
Featuring a blend of pieces ranging from multimedia and vignettes to choreography and improvisation, #TBPA addresses issues that effect the global community including body image, war, reliance on technology in a digital age, paternalism, and the media (just to name a few).
WARNING: The show contains content which may be triggering for some individuals such as sexual and domestic violence, terminal illness, and body politics.
Burger King Announcement of the Day: Burger King said today that it will begin buying eggs only from farms that don’t cage their hens — and similarly, pork only from producers that don’t use gestation stalls to confine sows — with a plan to complete the transition by 2017. The decision is the first of its kind by a global fast food industry giant, and comes amid recent undercover investigations by animal rights activists and concessions from major companies.
“So many tens of thousands of animals will now be in better living conditions,” said Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States. “Numerically this is significant because Burger King is such a big purchaser of these products.”
Apple originally touted Siri as the killer feature for the iPhone 4S, but it might not be exclusive to the phone for long. A new patent shows that iPhone users could be using Siri to control their iMac or MacBook in forthcoming versions of these machines.
It’s pretty logical to assume that Apple would include Siri in future releases, and integrating it to Mac OS could be the next step, especially considering how much the Mac OS looks like iOS now. On top of that, radical changes are expected for the next line of MacBook Pros.
As far as Siri is concerned, it’s still in its infancy, building its capabilities, and it’s doing so on the iPhone 4S. However, Apple owns a lot of patents it doesn’t actually use, and Siri was not added to the new iPad, so it might be keeping this one in its pocket for later. In fact, let’s hope it does.
Mold 3D, a new film from producers C.H. Airman and Patrick Archy at Hollywood Pictures, finally has a trailer! From the looks of it, it seems like a very gritty, realistic interpretation of the horrors students at St. Mary’s College of Maryland had to face during the mold epidemic at their school during the Fall 2011 semester.
Just watching this trailer gave me goosebumps!
For more information on Mold 3D, check out #TBPA in Bruce Davis Theater at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. The show re-opens Thursday, April 5.
