In the first half of the twentieth century, Stratford was home to Canada’s largest furniture industry. It employed about a quarter of the city’s workforce, the second largest industry after the railway which employed about a half. During the 1920s almost one-sixth of all the furniture made in Canada was made at Stratford.
The success of the furniture trade can be explained by Stratford’s location as a hub on the railway systems of the CNR which carried the products far and wide in six directions. The most important was the main line northeast to Toronto and Montreal, and southwest to Chicago, although the line to Buffalo was also important. Consequently, Stratford furniture was sold all over North America. MORE

Xaver Varnus plays Toccata and Fugue in D minor on the great Sauer Organ of the Berliner Dom. Recorded live on the Opening Night of the "Berliner Internationaler Orgelsommer 2013".

First built in Paris by Charles Marenghi in 1910, the organ above quickly found a home in a Belgian restaurant. And there it remained for many years until 1967, when it traveled abroad, to a Texas fairground. Imagine the culture shock it must have felt. But that's not where it ends. Nowadays, you can watch the 81-key organ play Queen's 1975 hit "Bohemian Rhapsody," quite different than whatever it was playing in Antwerp a century ago. Alexey Rom wrote the arrangement for the song, and programmed it using the strip of cards being fed through the instrument. Hopefully this isn't the last stop on this organ's grand journey. MORE
In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans. Leading AI textbooks define the field as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is often used to describe machines (or computers) that mimic "cognitive" functions that humans associate with the human mind, such as "learning" and "problem solving".
