For magic. For life.

The hard must become habit. The habit must become easy. The easy must become beautiful.

AMBER Alert Ontario

From their website:

The Ontario AMBER Alert is a warning system that quickly alerts the public of abducted children who are in imminent danger.

The participation of the public is essential to the success of AMBER Alert. The information you provide to police may help an abducted child before it is too late.

We can take action together to protect and safely recover abducted children.

From the CTV.ca website:

OPP say information posted on the social networking website could reach millions of users who can help in the search for abducted children.

Authorities hope Canada's 15 million Facebook users, including seven million in Ontario, can help them in the first crucial three to five hours after a child is abducted.


Sir Patrick Stewart in Macbeth

From the PBS website:

Following a London West End run in December 2007, a sold-out limited engagement at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in March 2008, and a subsequent eight-week run on Broadway, director Rupert Goold’s gripping stage production of Macbeth was filmed for television at the end of 2009.

The co-production between WNET.ORG and Illuminations Television, in association with the BBC, stars Sir Patrick Stewart in his triumphant, Tony-nominated performance as the ambitious general, and Tony-nominated Kate Fleetwood as his coldly scheming wife.

The production, though retaining the Goold’s exciting concept of relocating the bloody action to a nameless 20th-century militaristic society, has been rethought in vivid filmic terms. The movie, marking Goold’s cinematic debut, will be presented on PBS as part of the Great Performances series Wednesday, October 6, at 9 p.m. (check local listings).

If this is anywhere near as good as the performance of Hamlet they ran earlier this year, we're in for a real treat!
