TORONTO — CBC’s millennial dramedy “Sort Of” may revel in life’s grey areas but its creators Bilal Baig and Fab Filippo know one thing for certain – now is the right time to end it. “It feels really right, where we ended it and that feels good,” Filippo says of the final eight episodes. The finale, I think, ends in such a ‘Sort Of’ kind of way, so I really love it for that.”In “Sort Of” fashion, that means messy, heartfelt and heart-wrenching. It was a surprise to many when Baig and Filippo announced in October that the next season would also be its last. We have story resolutions that make you feel good, but then we ask questions right away,” Filippo explains.

I’ll be honest with you: I never really understood the appeal of the Rezvani Tank. The email we got from Copart states that this Rezvani Tank is “bulletproof,” but apparently it’s not truck-proof, as the rear quarter panel that got hit shows. Now the Rezvani sits on a Copart lot in Florida; per the auction site, the truck was once worth $354,241, making its current bid a steal at $80 grand! Looking at the pictures of the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 Rezvani Tank, the damaged area doesn’t look that bad; the rear wheel is off (perhaps the studs are sheared?) Copart made a little video showing off this mean machine, so you can feel like you’re right next to an immobile, fucked-up Rezvani Tank!

Vivian Silver, 74, an Arabic-speaker, life-long hands-on advocate for peace, Palestinian rights, and women’s rights, presumed kidnapped by Hamas in the October 7 massacre, today was declared dead, on the basis of forensic examination of previously unidentified remains at Kibbutz Be'eri, where her house had been gutted and burned to the ground. At least 120 other men, women and children were killed in the community of about 1,100 people near the Israel-Gaza border. As DrLou posted on October 17, Hamas' First Targets for its 10/7 Savagery were the most pro-Palestinian Rights 'Peace' Kibbutzim. Hamas Slaughters the Israeli Peace Movement ...Vivian Silver… was, and is, Hamas’s worst nightmare, a person who believed that Jews and Arabs… could—no, had to—coexist on a small patch of land common to both tribes’ ancestors. זיכרונה לברכהMay remembrance of the names and lives of those gone before us be a light to guide us ahead.

OTTAWA – Former senior RCMP intelligence official Cameron Ortis painted himself as a misunderstood hero during his trial, saying his leaking of classified information to suspected criminals was part of an ultra-secret mission from an unnamed foreign agency to lure them into using an email service. He said he began his ultra secret mission upon received “very compelling” information from a counterpart at a foreign agency in 2014 that “demonstrated clearly a direct and grave threat” to Canada. Monday, Germany-based Tuta strongly denied Ortis’ claims and said it is “wholly owned” by founders Arne Möhle and Matthias Pfau. “The Tutao GbmH is not owned by any secret service, nor is it a ‘storefront’ as claimed by Cameron Ortis,” reads the statement. He said he hatched his “intelligence operation”, called OR Nudge, following two calls from a counterpart at an unnamed foreign agency in 2014.

Calderon knows two of her children and their father were chased by Hamas gunmen because she received frightful messages from them as they fled. We don’t know when they will come back — if they will come back. If they get medicine, we don’t know nothing, no information.”It occurs to her a lack of information goes both ways. May Noya and all hostages taken by Hamas be returned soon, safely, to their families.”Next door to where Calderon’s children went missing is the home of Yocheved Lifshitz. They don’t know the facts.

Two Victorians who’ve devoted their lifelong passion for the stars to teaching its mysteries have been given a rare, out-of-this-world honour: They’ve had asteroids named after them. All the Beatles—John, Paul, George and Ringo—have an asteroid named after them. Freddy Mercury and Brian May of Queen have asteroids named after them. "Typically, asteroids do not get named after the astronomers who discovered them,” the RASC’s Hinds tells Capital Daily. But it’s OK, it’s up there, I know it’s there.”A complete list of all named asteroids is available here.

Arsenault, like many Canadians, found herself working multiple jobs just to cover her basic expenses. Despite holding a master’s degree in music therapy and working two part-time therapy positions, she still couldn’t afford to pay her rent. Music therapy is a specialized field of healthcare that uses music to improve the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of individuals. The rising cost of living, including housing, groceries, and bills, has made it difficult for many Canadians to make ends meet with a single job. Working multiple jobs can have detrimental effects on an individual’s physical and mental health.

It’s been 12 years since California housing has been in “buyer’s market” conditions. Lots of optionsSo what does history tell us about typical California buyer’s markets compared with supposedly seller-friendly times? California averaged a 26% lower sales rate in buyer’s markets vs. seller’s markets. Buyer’s bustThe spreadsheet says California was in buyer’s market status one-third of the time since 1990. So any buyer’s market should come with a warning label – and a financial calamity may be required to create another one for California house hunters.
