    “Etude pour les constructeurs” 1950 Fernand Leger



















    We follow the construction spend rate of the US education industry; using the US Census Bureau Construction Spending figures released the first day of every month.

    Today at 16:00 UTC we refresh our understanding of the technical standards for the timing-systems that maintain the temporal framework for daily life in education communities.  The campus clock continues as a monument of beauty and structure even though digitization of everything has rendered the central community clock redundant.

    Most leading practice discovery (and innovation) is happening with the Network Time Protocols (NTP) that synchronize the time stamps of widely separated data centers.  In operation since before 1985, NTP is one of the oldest Internet protocols in current use and underlies the Internet of Things build out.  NTP is particularly important in maintaining accurate time stamps for safety system coordination and for time stamps on email log messages.

  • “Tonight You Belong to Me” New York University
    All day

    Covers of a 1926 American Classic by Billy Rose and Lee David — both successful songwriters and composers in the music industry during the early to mid-20th century.  Billy Rose was a renowned Broadway producer, lyricist, and impresario known for his contributions to musical theater. He was involved in producing and writing lyrics for many Broadway shows.  Lee David, whose real name was Leonard David Flatau, was a songwriter and composer who collaborated with various musicians and lyricists during his career.  Neither had direct affiliations with colleges or universities in their professional lives, their work has been studied and appreciated by scholars and musicians in the context of American popular music and musical theater history.

    New York University (NYU) – Tisch School of the Arts: NYU is located in New York City, making it an ideal location for studying Broadway. Tisch offers a renowned musical theater program with a faculty and curriculum that emphasize the study and performance of musical theater.
