The photography exhibition at the Tech Garden demonstrates the ingenuity of local and international cell phone snapshot artists.

Cell phones have long surpassed their primary means of communication. They are now used to direct us from point A to point B, to make us dinner reservations and to calculate the direct percentage of tip money to leave the waiter.

Cohen arrives as The Dictator, Seacrest gets urn-dusted and the 84th Annual Academy Awards emerge as a true blast from the past.

The Twitterverse erupted with exclamations of shock or amusement the moment threatened-with-banishment funny Sacha Baron Cohen arrived in his controversial costume and dumped an urn of ashes (actually, pancake mix) on a shocked Ryan Seacrest. The well-known TV personality was visibly peeved but remained composed, and it was the first entertaining event to take place Sunday night. Did it suck for Seacrest? Of course.

Review: Symphony Syracuse underwhelms Friday night at Crouse-Hinds Theater

If Symphony Syracuse has a mission to keep their music on the stage, their performance on Friday, Nov. 18 left listeners questioning their conviction. Much of the evening was boring, due in part to a disagreement in interest between the programmers and this reviewer, and, more importantly, to the lackluster playing and tatty rhythm.
