I Knew It Was You

I Knew It Was You: Rediscovering John Cazale is a 2009 American documentary film about actor John Cazale, directed by Richard Shepard and produced by Brett Ratner, Stacey Reiss and Richard Shepard. The film received its title from a famed line from The Godfather Part II directed toward Cazale's character of Fredo Corleone, acts as a retrospective of Cazale's distinguished acting career, cut short at age 42 when he died of lung cancer; the film was produced with the cooperation of Meryl Streep, living with Cazale at the time of his death. It features interviews with a number of his notable directors. I Knew It Was You debuted at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, had its television premiere in Spain on June 9, 2009, it was released on DVD in Fall 2010 by Oscilloscope Laboratories. Victoria Large wrote that "while I Knew it Was You works as a wonderful career retrospective for fans or a great primer for newcomers, the real power of the piece lies in the juxtaposition of the highlights of Cazale's career with the warm remembrances of his friends and the biographical facts of his life".

Don R. Lewis of Film Threat felt that the film did not properly cover Cazale's early life, writing "From its awkward running time of 40 minutes to the way director Richard Shepard skims over the man's life outside of acting, I just didn't feel there was enough going on to make this doc special; that being said, I Knew It Was You is an excellent tribute piece to a fine actor and a great way to learn more about the roles and work ethic of Cazale". 2009, Won audience award at Newport International Film Festival.

Energy Innovation Center

The Energy Innovation Center is a multi-disciplinary institution in Pittsburgh, United States, that integrates workforce development programs, green technology research laboratories, a business incubator and collaborative university-industry projects. It is housed in the former Clifford B. Connelley Trade School, renovated both to accommodate diverse uses and to serve as a case study for green adaptive reuse. In 2014 the renovated building received the Engineers' Society of Western Pennsylvania Project of the Year Award for Sustainability, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and on the List of Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation Historic Landmarks, making it the only LEED Platinum structure to qualify for Historic Tax Credits. The idea for a sustainability research and education center emerged from a growing concern with green economic development, led by two Pennsylvania politicians, Congressman Michael F. Doyle and Jim Ferlo. In 2008 a consortium of non-profits, community organizations and small businesses formed Pittsburgh Green Innovators, a non-profit organization with a mission to support green economic and community development.

One goal was to re-establish a central educational institution for high-demand, skilled trades, with specialized curricula in green energy and sustainability, the Connelley Trade School was suggested as a possible site. Once on the cutting edge of vocational training, enrollment at the Connelley School declined along with Pittsburgh's population, leading to the school's closure in 2004. Recognizing that the scope of this work was beyond their capacity, Pittsburgh Green Innovators invited Pittsburgh Gateways Corporation, a local non-profit developer, to lead the project. Pittsburgh Gateways rented the vacant Connelley building from the Board of Public Education purchasing it in 2011. In Spring of the following year, with permission from the National Register of Historic Places, renovation began, according to plans designed by DLA+ Architects and design-build contractor Mascaro Construction. Under Gateways' guidance, the Connelley school underwent a massive renovation with the aim of bringing the old building up to LEED Platinum certification standards, at an estimated cost of $40 million.

Construction began February 2013. In 2014 it re-opened as the Energy Innovation Center, changing the building address in the process, from 1501 to 1435 Bedford Avenue. Consistent with the project's ecologically sustainable focus, renovation began with a deconstruction and salvage plan coordinated by Pittsburgh Green Innovators to divert construction and demolition debris from landfill; as of writing the project remains incomplete, but is on track to receive LEED Platinum NC certification, meet the stringent 2013 District energy and transportation emissions reduction targets. The Connelley Trade School sits on a 3.56 acre site in the Hill District/Crawford–Roberts neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The 172,152 square foot Classical Revival and Art Deco structure was designed by architect Edward B. Lee with builder J. G. Fullman and realized in steel, clad in brownstone, with brick throughout and an asphalt roof; the academic block housed a cafeteria, gymnasium and swimming pool - features shared by countless other educational institutions built or added to during the 1920s.

By contrast, the shop building, which sits behind the academic block and faces the downtown business district to the north-west, is marked by a distinctive saw-toothed roof. According to a brief history of the school, compiled by an instructor in the Mathematics and Physics department and published in 1960, the total cost came to $1,754,096.38. The laying of the cornerstone took place on February 11, 1929, accompanied by an address by James J. Davis, United States Secretary of Labor. In his address Davis argued for an elevated view of skilled labor, comparing the skill of the tradesman to the abilities required of an artist or military leader: "Let us not seek to despise the human hand, it is not so humble. We do not despise the great writers and artists of our race, these people have been compelled to use their hands in writing their books or painting their pictures. In the old days when a king went out at the head of his army to fight, he carried a sword and did his share of the fighting."The school's official opening ceremony took place on Friday afternoon, May 1, 1931, presided over by Marcus Aaron, the President of the Board of Public Education and a dedication by Gerald D. Whitney of the University of Pittsburgh.

The trade school took its name from Clifford Brown Connelley, who served as Commissioner of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry from 1919-1923. Connelley was a life-long advocate of technical and industrial education. Notably, he was one of the original designers of Carnegie Mellon University, retaining an affiliation there for 20 years. Connelley was born March 26, 1863 in Monongahela City, Pennsylvania, to George and Elizabeth Connelley. Little is known of his youth. Despite his mother's hopes that her son might one day enter the clergy, young Connelley proved talented at design and handwork, crafting small toys, miniature furniture and boxes. Given his achievements in the field of education, Connelley left school at age 11 to work as a messenger boy for Blair Iron & Steel Company at a salary of $3/week, he apprenticed in machine shops at Robinson & Rea Company and Williams Sellers & Co. in Philadelphia completing his high school education at the Seventeenth Ward School. In an unusual arrangement, he took a position at the Western University of Pen
