The 82nd Academy Awards were held Sunday night, but overnight ratings are not expected to be good. This is due in part to declining ratings in past years and the show running an hour past prime time. This is also due to the fact that people are losing interest in the show.
These days there are more choices when it comes to TV viewing, there are more channels, there are more programs and there are on-demand and DVR’s. The Oscars had there heyday when there were few networks and fewer channels. Polls on the Internet are showing that more people will not be watching the Oscars than will be watching.
Even those people who are interested in the Academy Award results, can find those results on the Internet, seconds after they were announced. or wait until after the show to get the full results. See the bottom of this blog entry to get the Academy Awards results.
Just as there are so many television options as alternatives to the Ocars, Telsec has many options for Toronto office space solutions. At Telsec, you can choose shared office space, semi private office space, team space, executive office space, city view office, lake view office and even a corner office. The choices of office options do not end at physical office space, as Telsec also offers Toronto virtual offices. You can choose to have Toronto mail service at a prestigious address or mail and telephone answering service Toronto where your calls are answered by a professional receptionist who handle your calls to your instructions.
Before I give you the Academy Award results, I should mention that when you choose office space Toronto from Telsec, you are not only getting a great office space, but you are also getting a great downtown office location that offers easy access to public transit and plenty of inexpensive parking.

In closing, I also have to send a compliment to the organizers and staff of the Toronto International Bicycle Show for a fantastic job they did this past weekend. I was not only entertained, but I found some amazing deals. A new feature to this years bicycle show was the 24 hour spin. Hundreds of cyclists rode stationary bikes over the coarse of 24 hours to raise money for children with cancer.
