Interested in attending a performance—an opera, ballet, recital, or concert—at the Palais Garnier in Paris? This article will comprehensively provide advice and tips on all aspects of your visit to the Opera Garnier such as when to arrive, what to wear, and what to expect so you can make the most out of your visit to this beautiful and historic venue. I really love the Palais Garnier and have attended two ballets and one opera here—our most recent visit was in June.

Setting: May of 2000. Scene: First date. Guy and girl both in late teens. Conversation about movie preferences. Girl: I like the classics. Guy: The classics. Like Die Hard?

Within the Māori community, and to a lesser extent throughout New Zealand as a whole, the word Māoritanga is often used as an approximate synonym for Māori culture, the Māori suffix -tanga being roughly equivalent to the qualitative noun ending "-ness" in English.[1][2] There have been three distinct but overlapping cultural eras—before widespread European contact, the 1800s in which Māori began interacting with European visitors and settlers, and the modern era since the beginning of the 20th century.

Will AI replace creative professionals? ANTHONY WOOD, SHILLINGTON EDUCATION JUNE 1, 2017 12:10 PM Automation. From assembly lines to cubicles, this word strikes fear into the heart of workers the world over. However, automation’s effect on creative professionals (and designers in particular) is somewhat unclear: While some writers warn of a day in the near future when computers will automate creativity, still others hypothesize that creativity may be our best (and last) defense against the widespread loss of jobs. So which will it be? Should designers fear the machines? Or should they embrace them?
