How Can I Stream Toronto/Ontario News?

2020.09.09 15:54 M2A0R2S0 How Can I Stream Toronto/Ontario News?

Hi everyone,
My partner and I moved to the Niagara region recently. We got internet in our rental unit yesterday and things have been a lot better for that. Our internet package doesn't include cable and there's something I've been missing - my late night news broadcast.
I don't particularly care which TV news channel I watch because I like the news at the end of the day to just end my day. I know that during COVID, there were some news streams.
I was wondering what people use to stream the news at a certain hour. Google surprisingly has really confusing results when searching for Toronto news streams. I just want a website where I can get my news at 10 or 11 for about half an hour and that's it.
Anyone know what I can do to stream Toronto/Ontario news?

2020.09.03 18:23 Whenzel Self Isolation Options in Halifax?

I've been trying to do some digging around on the internet to see what options people would have for self isolating upon returning back to Halifax, but I haven't come across anything so I figured this would probably be a good way to try to gather some info.
My partner has been trying to make it home to Ontario for some time now, pretty much since COVID-19 started to become serious and travel restrictions were set in place. She's finally getting the opportunity for some time off near the end of the month, and in that time she'd like to go visit her family, however her dilemma is not having a space to self isolate for 14 days upon returning from the trip.
We live together in a household with 2 other people - so 4 of us total. We share one bedroom, the other 2 share the other bedroom, and the kitchen, bathroom and common areas are shared between everyone. If she were to try to self isolate in our home upon returning, that would mean the other 3 of us wouldn't be able to work (assuming everyone was respectful about being in contact with someone who was out of province).
Beyond that, she's no longer a student so she wouldn't be able to self isolate in Dalhousie's residences like I saw that they were doing for returning students. Me, being a Halifax native, would probably be able to find friends houses to stay at, or my parents couch if it came down to it, but I don't know if the other 2 would be able to find elsewhere to stay if she were to stay home to isolate. So, if anybody has any leads or recommendations on where we could possibly look to arrange something, that also won't cost an arm and a leg, please reach out! It would be greatly appreciated.

TL;DR I need to find self isolation options and resources in Halifax for my partner so she can visit her family back home in Ontario before a second wave and travel restrictions are set in place again. Most likely for sometime around the end of September-mid October.

2020.08.06 17:00 lynxkitty102 Want to start agility training with dog, no idea where to start.

Hello! So as the title says I want to start agility training with my dog. I adopted a 2year old poodle x wheaten terrier about 2 months ago. He’s got a bite history history but it appears to only be connected with protecting the owner (we have handled all signs of aggression and he is doing amazing). Anyway, I am located in southern Ontario, Canada. I do not have a ton of income (part time masters student) but this dog is so smart and fast. He’s my first dog(I have fostered before but never raised a dog as my own) so I want to do good with him. Basically I am wondering where do I start with this? I have tried looking some things online but honestly I’m lost, i don’t know the words, I don’t know how to judge a trainer, I don’t know what are reasonable prices etc. I live in an apartment so I can’t set up an agility course in the backyard but I do have lots of parks around.
Reasons I think he’d have a blast at agility training: - He’s fast. I’ve seen him run circles around most dogs and the only one to consistently keep up was an Australian cattle dog
Some things that still aren’t great are his recall, we are working on it but he never goes far and does eventually come back when you call him. And his wait is good as long as you don’t put any distance between yourself and him, also working on it.
Thank you for reading my long post!
TLDR super smart pup that I want to agility train, in southern Ontario, don’t know where to start(the internet is vast...)

2020.07.23 20:27 SecretPopCan Met our financial goal of lowering expense to minimum wage (full time) levels / adult in order to recession proof. Several lessons from a thought experiment that we eventually implemented

My partner and I have lowered our living expense down to the level of minimum wage each (Ontario: $14/h) with the belief that even in recession times, there will still be minimum wage jobs that you can take, even if you need to take 2-3 of them to get 40 hours from all of them. We did this gradually over years by examining our expenses and looking at our goals.
Note1: that we don't actually work minimum wage jobs or that this is a critique on minimum wage being a livable wage.
Note2: Our actual income is 50k+60k

Some basic math on how we determined what our fixed cost/living expense should have been
work hours a year : 2080 Ontario Minimum wage: $14 (2018 - 2020) Annual income: 2080*14 = 29,120 2 working adults: 29,120 * 2 = EDIT: 58240 not 38,120 Total living expense: ~30,600 ( See note below) 
Notes about fixed cost:

What we've learned from this:
  1. Living a minimum wage expense lifestyle gives us little stress about job loss, constant news about recession etc. During this covid period we had the piece of mind that most people did not have.
  2. Having a lower expense allows us to take bigger risk with our careers
  3. We are excited whenever the minimum wage goes up because we get to slightly inflate our lifestyle since we calculate our living expense budget based Ontario minimum wage. On Oct 2020 we will recalculate our expense when it goes up to $14.25
  4. When we decide to have a child, we can easily absorb this with minimal increases to our living expense

Friends and family often ask how switching to this "frugal" lifestyle has changed us. There were some easy cuts we made along the way as well as lot of questions of "why do we need x" which caused us to sell something we've owned or not buy something we might want.

The bigger lifestyle change though is who we associated with. Some people we would start seeing less of due to economical reasons. We might skip the bar but hang out with them on board game nights or at the park.

One painful lesson we had to learn was to try and surround ourselves with like minded people. It's very easy to get talked into why we need brand new bicycles or cars when ours are working just find.

2020.07.17 04:22 ThrowAwayRASoraka My (27F) fiance (35M) keeps getting involved with mentally ill women

My situation is convoluted and nuanced. I am looking for some outside perspective (have you been through something similar?), and looking for advice from thoughtful reddit folk. A big thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond. Apologies if this is hard to follow, I don't want to dox anyone. I will try to only include relevant information. Content warning for those who need it, I discuss mental illness, self-harm, abuse, and infidelity.
Here is some relevant background information: I have been with my fiance for over 5 years. When we met, I was living at home in an unsafe family situation. After nearly a year together, I moved in with him. My partner is very wealthy, and is the sole owner of our home. I am disabled, but not on disability. We are unmarried, we have no kids, and we have several pets. My health took a turn for the worst in April of 2019, and my partner stepped in to support me financially (roof over my head, food on the table, pet food, vet bills, medical costs, transportation, all of it). I have been seeing a very qualified therapist individually since April of 2019 (you're going to suggest it - I'm on top if that part). Very importantly, when I met my partner 5 years ago I expressed my interest in ethical non-monogamy. I am a queer woman. I chose exclusive monogamy when I met my partner, though I did tell him about my past experiences and interests. My partner mirrored an interest, but we did not set out to meet or date anybody else right away. This should be the bulk of what you need to know.
5 months into our relationship, my partner introduced me to an ex of his. We will call her Maeve. Maeve and my partner are the same age, born in the same year and all that. Maeve dated my partner online/long-distance for one month (a year before I met him), and then allegedly broke up and decided it was best to stay friends. He introduced me to her early in our relationship, because we all had the same interest in online gaming. I was excited to befriend her. Their past romantic relationship seemed like water under the bridge, and I did not feel at all threatened. I trusted my partners boundaries. He seemed both committed to and happy with me.
Maeve did not live near us, she claimed to live on the east coast. I began speaking with her over WhatsApp throughout the week, and learned that she was living with mental illness. I offered encouragement, and a thoughtful ear when she requested it. Some of the things she said over voice chat while gaming, and some of the things she messaged me on WhatsApp did disturb me. She would describe trolling and harassing folks online, and then laugh about getting banned. She was an online bully, and a very insecure person. As I was in a new relationship (and admittedly young and shy at the time), I did not chide her openly, but told my partner that I found her behavior disturbing.
I would come over to partner's house after work, and hear him on the phone trying to calm somebody down. He would say, "Oh, Maeve had a bad day." What I did not know, is that these two never fully broke up. They did not have a clean break, anyway. Maeve desperately wanted to date my partner. She would call him and cry, and plead, and threaten to kill herself if she "could not have him". She had a profoundly unhealthy and obsessive attachment to my partner. He let slip that I was "into" polyamory, and she decided that she was going to date him, date me, and move in with him. I knew none of this. When my partner (this is secondhand, mind you, but it is what I was told eventually) would tell her they could not date and that he wasn't her boyfriend/lover, she would send pictures of self-harm blood, vomit in the toilet, she would threaten suicide, and threaten to vomit up her food and medication. What I also did not know was that she was living, diagnosed, with Borderline Personality Disorder. I have intimate experience living with somebody with a *diagnosed* (which is key, we throw diagnoses around liberally when we absolutely should not) personality disorder. I understand that this illness is highly stigmatized, and I do not want to generalize or spread misinformation. This is just my experience with one person. If my partner did not respond to her calls and messages promptly, she would leave angry, explicit voice messages saying that he was an asshole and she hated him. She screamed at him on the phone one minute, and then said he was her everything the next, and I knew exactly none of this while it was going on.
She began flirting with me over voice chat while we played online games, and I was so bewildered because I did not believe she would be interested in me. I started getting uncomfortable. The more she felt rejected by me, the angrier and more obsessive she became with my partner. It culminated in two ways: One day she messaged him that she had woken up from a sexually explicit dream about ME. She described some wild, specific scenario. As it turns out, my boyfriend had taken sexually explicit images that matched her description. Without my consent or knowledge, he sent them to her. Simultaneously, I became disturbed by her paranoia and angst within our friendship, and I reached a point where I did not want to be her friend anymore. My withdrawal upset her, and the whole romance/verbal abuse/obsession portion I was in the dark about was let slip by my partner. He was afraid that at any moment she would kill herself, and that it would be his fault. He gave me details I'd never been given before - About how he paid for flights, hotels, concert tickets to allow them to meet up and how she'd bailed every time. About how she would blow up his phone asking for his love and constant attention, they'd fight, she'd disappear, and then reappear to do the same things. When he decided to date me, he told me she had chilled out and asked to stay in his life as his friend.
He did NOT tell me about the sexually explicit images. When he gave me these sparse details, I pitied the two of them. I expressed my sorrow that he had gotten entangled with someone who was profoundly ill. I told him I would call her and explain that she was not to contact us ever again. I called her and held my ground, expressed my empathy and hope for her recovery/future. She began crying, pleading, yelling, and when I did not yield she told me about the images. I confirmed with my partner that this was true. I was devastated. I drove to his home, we spoke for hours, he told me all the rest about the sexting, and I was heartbroken. I felt like a fool, and I felt extremely violated. I asked him to delete all images of me on his phone and computer. I haven't since and never again will take nude/lewd images of myself. We spent upwards of a year working on these issues and rehashing the emotions, all of it. In the end, I chose to forgive him for the mistakes he made, but it took a significant toll on the trust I had in him.
Our relationship for the most part had returned to normal when I again mentioned my interest in ethical non-monogamy. I have many reasons for my interest in the lifestyle, the most important being that I don't personally think our partners/spouses can or should have to meet every need. We all need community, love, friendship, and romantic bonds that may or may not include sex. We are not all privileged in having a relationship with our family, a tight-knit work environment, a faith community, a wide circle of friends, and super-spouse who is capable of all that and more. I thought that we would be able to meet like minded people by opening ourselves up to both platonic and romantic relationships. Because of the abuse of trust in the past, we tentatively dipped our toes into dating. We both went on a few dates over the years. I never became seriously entangled with anybody else. I was never intimate with nor did I date anybody besides my partner. He had a situationship with some woman who seemed nice, but she moved away and that was allegedly the end of it. In the time that has since passed, we have been very happy together (despite life's many tribulations for me and for him), added pets to our home, and become engaged. We were very much in the middle of both planning a wedding and making plans to sell this house to move closer to where his mother lives.
Here is my current issue. In Spring of 2019, my partner met a girl on a dating app who I will call Ami. Ami lives in Ontario. We live in the United States. Ami is my age, just an adult lookin' for love. When they began speaking, he told me about her. I was excited for him, I told him to go for it, see where things go, and to keep me in the loop. Above all, I wanted him to be happy, and not feel that our relationship limits his happiness. As time passed, he told me they were interested in meeting. I took him to the doctor to get him tested, he was clean, all was going well. He bought her a plane ticket to California (not where we live, just where she wanted to visit), and booked her a hotel. He flew to California - Then she bailed. She claimed she was sick, missed her flight, and went to a hospital in Ontario. This for him was very reminiscent of what had happened with Maeve several years ago. Maeve always bailed at the last second, and then would plead over and over again for a chance to try again, and meet up. That is exactly what Ami did, she flooded his phone with pictures of her at the hospital, desperate pleas for another chance, truly over the top stuff. My partner was FURIOUS, and blocked Ami. He spent a few days alone in California, and then came home, obviously upset. Her whole story about becoming sick sounded to me like she got anxiety. If I was meeting up with a stranger, 8 years older than me, in another country - I'd be horribly suspicious, and quite anxious as well. I am not a predator, he is not a predator, we are not crazy, voracious swingers, but I know she had no way of knowing that without meeting him. Her anxiety is valid, but I know my fiance has never been a danger to anyone. I chalked the whole thing up to her nerves and told him to forget about her.
Well, less than two months later she contacted him on social media and asked for just 10 minutes of his time, a cup of coffee. She'd fly to our state, pay for everything, and only wanted a few minutes of his time. He reluctantly agreed. I asked him - Why give her any second chance at all? This person does not seem like she's got it together. He cited his loneliness, and his pity for her. I've always been someone that advocates for touching the hot stove. If there is a mistake you need to learn from, make the mistake. Burn yourself on the stove, and then never touch it again. I let him make the decision, I didn't butt in. They made the plan for her to fly here. And she bailed again, as we both suspected.
We continued on with life as usual (which admittedly was very stressful, both my health and his work were not going well at the time) - except UNBEKNOWNST TO ME (the theme of this all), she continued to contact him all over the internet (dating profiles, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and finally LinkedIn) to get his attention. In the springtime of 2019, he had told her he was flying home to visit his mother for Thanksgiving. So, she booked a flight to said city for Thanksgiving, and said she was going to meet him there. He allegedly ignored her, but when the time came, she actually followed through, flew there, and got a hotel. She blew up his social media and begged him to meet her, and eventually in the middle of the night he took an Uber to meet her, and they had sex.
After said encounter, he flew home to me and pretended like everything was normal. He did not tell me that they were still in contact. He alleges that he had immediate remorse for that night, and would block each account she found him with (and at the moment this is being written she is STILL making new accounts to contact him), but that when she messaged him on LinkedIn asking for professional mentoring, he let her back into his life. They began speaking regularly about work at first (allegedly), and then began sexting and swapping nude photographs. All of this behind my back, even though he was 'technically' allowed to have healthy, ethical relationships with other women. In hindsight, he claims he could not tell me about the November 2019 encounter because I was very ill at the time (I did not come with him when he flew for Thanksgiving), and simultaneously very mentally fragile/changeable. He continued a sexting relationship with her for 8 months after the November encounter. Sometime in 2019, I remember seeing her view my LinkedIn profile. I found it very odd, but brushed it off. She viewed it again in June of 2020. And then July 13th (this passed week), I got a notification that I had a new Instagram follower - Ami! I had just made my Instagram days prior. I had less than 10 followers (all my fiance's family). I immediately became uneasy, and told my fiance. He grew very stressed, and over the course of the evening I got the feeling I didn't have the whole story - and I pushed him to tell me what I did not know. He told me about the encounter, about how anxious/avoidant, push/pull their relationship was, and how when he told her they could not be lovers, she would make subtle threats about killing herself.
I have screenshotted her attempts to follow me online, and he has begun screenshotting all her attempts to contact him. She has nude images of him, and has access to his LinkedIn where all his work contacts are. I am afraid of retaliation. We understand there are harsh laws in Canada around stalking/retaliation - But what is our recourse? As far as I can tell none of this madness is illegal. He does not yet have any proof of her making threats against him or her life. How do we protect ourselves from her stalking, and how do I address my fiance's continual breaches of trust? My fiance has contacted several couples counselors, and so far they all have wait lists. I do not have the resources to leave even if I wanted to. I feel angry, hurt, scared, and confused. I have met plenty of functioning, healthy, ethically non-monogamous folk over the years. I don't think the fault lies in the lifestyle - but in my partner, and his boundaries with others. Clear, frequent communication and strong boundaries are an integral part of any relationship, especially romantic relationships, but if you have a lifestyle like the one we pursued, you have no choice but to up your communication game, or face the fallout. I certainly don't think I will be pursuing any type of relationship with anybody for the time being (don't feel like you have to comment on the non-monogamy portion, I know it is a mess), but I would like advice as to how I personally should proceed. My self esteem is crushed, and I no longer trust my fiance.
TL;DR - My fiance has been manipulated by two women who are very mentally ill. He began and maintained sexual relationships with them behind my back. I have not yet made a decision to break up, or try to work on our relationship. I am treading water and looking for advice.

2020.07.12 01:08 ThrowawayArghhhhhh Mother Guilt Trips Me Over Attending My Best Friend's Wedding

For context, I [30] live in Ontario, Canada. The COVID-19 cases are low enough for the province to move onto Stage 2 which allows small gatherings. 30% capacity for churches.
TL;DR at the end.
My mother [59] has had a very difficult life. She was the 4th out for 5 children (youngest female). In her family back in the day, males were the preferred gender and the boys got the best of everything. That left my mother and sisters with the scraps for dinner, no education opportunities, etc. Due the lack of nutrition growing up, her body is weaker than most people. She is fragile and can get sick easily.
She had a very difficult and traumatic experience when giving birth to me which resulted in her body becoming damaged which further weakened her. She was told that her body could not handle giving birth to another child. I was a sickly baby and needed a lot of care and time which caused her to have an extra long painful recovery. She never fully recovered from the physical damage done. She was forced to take care of me while essentially being temporarily paralyzed from the waist down for over a year with no support from my father [61] or from her family.
Her mental health has always been an issue because of the lack of love and attention from her parents. She vowed that her children would only experience unconditional love from her. Because of this, I being her only child, receive too much attention and is constantly showered with love and acts of service (she did everything for me). She is a very emotional person and is very over protective of me.
My father and mother divorced when I was young. My mother found a new partner [62] soon after (a father of one of my childhood classmates). He is a good man and cares deeply for my mother and me. He has been a father figure for me and also showers me with acts of service and love. I consider him my stepfather and he has a more steady and rational head.
I appreciate their love and support and I try not to take for granted all that they do and have done for me. They prepare all my meals and wash my clothes. I am fully capable of doing these tasks however I work long hours and they are home all the time so it is all out of convenience. To show my appreciation, I work hard to earn money to pay for the mortgage and buy them things to make their lives easier and enjoyable.
The 3 of us have lived together as a family unit for almost 20 years. They are now both retired and I am 30 years old. I am ready to move out. I plan on continuing to financially support them by paying the mortgage. They have enough resources to sustain them both comfortablely in retirement even without my help. I agreed to take on the mortgage payments with the understanding that the house will be mine after they are gone, I am on title along with both of them. They are financially responsible for all the other expenses such as hydro, gas, water, internet, etc.
COVID-19 has put a lot of pressure on everyone and it has accelerated my desire to move out. One of my best friends got married today. Only 30 guests were invited and everyone had to wear a mask and sit in different rows all staggered apart. Event would be 30 minutes tops.
The whole issue started when I said I wanted to go to the wedding. They were both adamantly against the idea because what if I caught COVID-19 and brought it back into our home and caused them to get sick and die? How after all the years of pain and suffering they went through for me, that I can choose my friends over their well-being? I explained that I care for them and that the risk was low. I also said that they had rules and precautions in place. They did not understand. This went on back and forth for two weeks with neither side agreeing. I felt like I was being guilt tripped into not going.
My friends and the couple were understanding of the whole situation yet taken aback by the lack of freedom and overbearing parental input despite my age. I accidentally let this opinion slip to my mother and she exploded with anger. "How dare you think that you have no freedom? I have given you everything you wanted, I have sacrificed so much for you and this is how you act? You put your friends before your family. Your friends are so immature. We are in a pandemic, no one knows who is a silent carrier! How can you be sure you don't bring it home and infect us?! You don't understand how serious this is." We both agreed our levels of risk assessment are completely different.
I ended up missing the ceremony to great disappointment. I did go, albeit with my mother, to the church parking lot to greet them and say congratulations. I was forced to stay in the car for most of the time and was allowed only at the end to exit the car as long as I physically distanced myself. I managed to say hi to everyone in as they were leaving and to take a photo of the happy couple as they were driving off from afar. I barely got a word in with my newlywed friend.
I am angry I could not witness a major milestone of my best friend because of my mother's fears. I fear our relationship has been irreparably damaged. Only time will tell.
Did I gauge this risk situation incorrectly? Is it time to move out?
TL;DR - my frail mother thinks I am stupid and immature for wanting to go to a small wedding in the middle of COVID-19 in Canada (with masks and physical distancing) thus potentially infecting and killing her.

2019-present: Proposed acquisition by Cineworld
On December 16, 2019, Cineplex announced a definitive agreement to be acquired by the British cinema operator Cineworld Group, the second-largest film exhibitor worldwide, pending shareholder and regulatory approval. Cineworld would be paying $34 per-share—a 42% premium over Cineplex's share price prior to the announcement, valuing the company at CDN$2.8 billion. Cineworld planned to pay US$1.65 billion, and to fund the remainder by taking on debt.
The sale was approved by Cineplex shareholders in February 2020. Activist shareholder Bluebell Capital Partners called for the Canadian government to block the sale, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. which in turn led to the temporary closure(s) of all Cineplex movie theatres across Canada since March 16, 2020, and up until further notice.

Newzoo: Global esports will top $1 billion in 2020, with China as the top market (Feb 25, 2020):
Global esports revenues will surpass $1 billion in 2020 for the first time — without counting broadcasting platform revenues, according to market researcher Newzoo.
Globally, the total esports audience will grow to 495.0 million people in 2020, Newzoo said. Esports Enthusiasts (people who watch more than once a month) make up 222.9 million of this number.
In 2020, $822.4 million in revenues—or three-quarters of the total market—will come from media rights and sponsorship.
“As the esports market matures, new monetization methods will be implemented and improved upon,” said Remer Rietkerk, head of esports at Newzoo, in the report. “Likewise, the number of local events, leagues, and media rights deals will increase; therefore, we anticipate the average revenue per fan to grow to $5.27 by 2023.”

PLAYDIUM
Playdium is a family entertainment centre chain owned by Cineplex Entertainment through its subsidiary Player One Amusement Group. The flagship location in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada launched as Sega City @ Playdium near Square One Shopping Centre on September 7, 1996. The 11 acres (480,000 sq ft) centre cost CA$17 million to build and included an arcade, batting cages, go-karts and mini-golf. A partnership with Sega GameWorks, it featured many arcade games from that company such as Daytona USA, and eight-player racing setups for Indy 500 (as Virtua Indy) and Manx TT Super Bike. Indy 500 remains available today. In 1999, the centre was renamed to Playdium. The company opened up two more locations in Brampton and Whitby in late 2019.

The Rec Room
The Rec Room is a Canadian chain of entertainment restaurants owned by Cineplex Entertainment. First opening in Edmonton in 2016, its locations feature entertainment and recreational attractions such as an arcade, driving simulators, recreational games, and virtual reality, as well as restaurants and bars, and an auditorium with a cinema-style screen, which can be used for concerts and other live events.
The Toronto location features The Void virtual reality attraction. In July 2018, Cineplex announced that it would become the exclusive Canadian franchisee of The Void and add additional locations (such as the Mississauga and West Edmonton Mall locations).

FOOD & BEVERAGES
Cineplex has an Outtakes (French: Restoplex) restaurant in 94 theatres, some which replace previous restaurant partners (Burger King, KFC and New York Fries) and others which introduce restaurants at locations which did not previously feature one. VIP Cinemas and some Xscape locations feature a licensed lounge with more premium offerings compared to Outtakes. Poptopia is a flavoured popcorn restaurant offered in a full-service format at 22 locations. Other Cineplex theatres may feature Poptopia at the concession stand, but only in the caramel corn and/or kettle corn flavours.
Ice cream at Cineplex locations debuted with Baskin-Robbins and TCBY. Beginning in December 2007, Yogen Früz became the preferred partner. On January 1, 2014, Cineplex acquired a 50% stake in Yoyo's Yogurt Café. As of January 2017, 77 Cineplex theatres feature Yoyo's restaurants, while Yogen Fruz is still available in 23 Cineplex theatres while TCBY is available in 16 locations. Cineplex also manages Melt Sweet Creations, an in-house dessert bouqtiue brand targeted at women ages 19-35 debuted in December 2017 at Cineplex Cinemas Queensway and VIP. Melt is available at 13 locations.
Beverages are available in both cold and hot formats. Cold beverages include the Coca-Cola lineup, which replaced the Pepsi lineup used at locations formerly owned by Famous Players. 12 locations feature Coca-Cola Freestyle. Hot beverages include Starbucks as the incumbent provider with 105 locations, all which offer Pike Place Roast coffee (regular or decaf) and Tazo tea. Select locations also offer premium drinks such as caffè mocha or caramel macchiato. Tim Hortons is available as a full-service restaurant in five locations,[75] with Brossard being the only location to offer both Tim Hortons and Starbucks.
In most theatres, Cineplex offers sale of alcohol to 19+ guests in Ontario (18+ in Alberta) similar to the VIP theatres albeit from a selection of beer or cider beverages.
If Aurora Cannabis (ACB) & Cineplex (CGX) partnered up to offer CBD & THC infused Cannabis 2.0 edibles in movie theaters, especially the IMAX & 3D ones, it should do very well. Canadian Cannabis Industry stocks should also do well as I posted earlier Cannabis Stocks Opportunity.

Staggered seating, nostalgic films: Cinemark offers a look at movie going post-coronavirus (Apr 15, 2020):
Cinemark, the third-largest movie theater chain in the U.S., hopes to reopen at least some of its doors to the public in July.
With no major movie release until mid-July, theaters could play “library” movies, which are movies that have already previously been released in cinemas, for several weeks.
If social distancing restrictions are still in place the company said it would either sell every other reserved seat in the theater or suspend reservations and just sell 50% of the tickets per theater.
“Even at peak periods of time in a normal environment, our occupancy levels range from 20% to 30% and we can operate profitably during those scenarios...” - CEO Mark Zoradi
He added that Cinemark has seen attendance as low as 10% and still was able to turn a profit.

North Vancouver's Park & Tilford Cineplex permanently closed (May 20, 2020)
The company closed all 165 theatres across Canada in March due to COVID-19, but the 1,382-seat Brookesbank Avenue location won’t be among those reopening, Cineplex has confirmed.
With Cineplex closing its Lower Lonsdale theatre in 2019, it leaves Park Royal as the only place to catch a big screen flick on the North Shore.
“We thank the community for their patronage over the years, and look forward to welcoming them at neighbouring Cineplex Cinemas Park Royal and VIP,” said Sarah Van Lange, executive director of communications. “I’ll note that our intent is to repurpose the Park & Tilford theatre space, which we’ll have more details on at a later date.”

Alert: Cineplex (TSX:CGX) Could Be Acquired by This Incredibly Unlikely Source (May 12, 2020):
Despite Cineworld maintaining its commitment to buy Cineplex, the market has a different opinion. Remember, Cineplex agreed to be acquired at $34 per share. As I type this, the stock trades at $14.44. There’s no way the spread would be that wide, unless investors were writing off the acquisition completely.
Fortunately for beleaguered Cineplex shareholders, a new suitor could very well come along — one virtually nobody sees coming.
Although I think there’s potential for a private equity group or some other deep-pocketed investor taking a run at Cineplex’s cheap assets, there’s a much more interesting suitor on the horizon.
That acquirer is Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN).

Cineworld joins AMC in banning films from Universal Studios (April 29, 2020):

“There is a certain system of windows which are a custom in the market and this sets the time difference between the theatrical market and other ancillary markets, among them streaming. Any movie that will not respect this window will not be shown in Cineworld group,” Mooky Greidinger, Cineworld’s chief executive, said on Wednesday.

https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/article/most-anticipated-movies-of-2020
---------------------------------------------
CONCLUSION:
Nothing beats watching a great movie on the big screen in premium format:
  • Prime Seats
  • IMAX
  • UltraAVX
  • D-Box
  • VIP Cinemas
  • 4DX
I'm sick of the congested internet & buffering of online movies & services during Covid19. They need to upgrade the internet infrastructure to 5G & Fiber Optics before it can really grow in my opinion -- especially buffering 4K & 8K movies & future tech that will only require more bandwidth going forward.
Younger people are not afraid of Covid19 like the older crowd. When theaters open, they will rush in to see their favourite movies.
Betting that people won't want to go to movie theaters when they re-open, is like betting the same against live sporting events or music concerts.
No home movie theater can match a real movie theater, even the smaller discount ones, unless you're Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos etc.
With Cineplex's Canadian Monopoly & diversification into other entertainment arenas like eSports & Virtual Reality, as long as they don't go bankrupt & social distancing restrictions are loosened, the stock should increase 2 to 3 times by end of 2021 in my opinion -- especially if the Cineworld Buyout goes as planned or another company like Amazon buys them out for a strong presence & control in Canada.
If a Coronavirus Vaccine is discovered sooner than later, then this stock will rebound accordingly & rapidly -- especially if they don't cancel or even if they do, resume Dividend payments in the future. At current prices, Dividend yield is about 13% per year.

Social distance cinema: drive-in theatres boom – in pictures (May 5, 2020):
We are all social creatures & want to go to movie theater as a social activity, to see & be seen; otherwise, why would Drive In Movie theaters boom during Covid19?
If no one goes out to be seen anymore, then all the Vanity Goods & Services will go under too & we will all dress in sweat pants & T-Shirt -- no need for designer suits & dresses working & staying at home. LOL ;p
https://www.theguardian.com/world/gallery/2020/may/05/social-distance-cinema-drive-in-theatres-boom-coronavirus-in-pictures
---------------------------------------------
Internet Bandwidth Requirements:
Online streaming remains the biggest source of 4K content, led by Netflix and Amazon’s growing selection of original series. But many consumer broadband connections aren’t fast enough to allow reliable 4K streaming.
Home Theater Movie Resolutions:
  • 4K (UHD): 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
  • 1080p (Full HD): 1,920 x 1,080 pixels
  • 720p (HD): 1,280 x 720 pixels
  • 480p (SD): 640 x 480 pixels
  • 8K: 7,680 x 4,320 pixels
For comparison purposes, 70mm film - still considered by many to be the gold standard - is roughly equivalent to a 12K resolution in digital terms, so digital's still got some catching up to do on that score.

2020.05.14 14:08 youto2 House Party 5/11/2020 - Part One

We open our scene, as we’re out in an isolated, gorgeous bit of wilderness, isolated except for one huge exception, a very lavish gold and white mansion with it’s gold gates at the entrance. We then see a rather out of place looking object drive near the gates, a very unfancy appearing green jeep. A bit before the gate, security guards on the premises instruct the jeep to stop, which it does, as we switch our view to a first person one from inside the jeep as the driver’s side window is rolled down.
Guard: Sir, if you could lower your sunglasses so we could identify you that'd be appreciated
The camera then changes to the guards pov, where we see a man who is clearly Stephen Romero, who appears to be attempting to disguise himself by wearing sunglasses.
Romero: Sorry, I had issues with them falling off so I glued them on and now I can't get them off, now can I get through?
Guard: Hmmm…..I get the feeling I'm getting one pulled over me.
Romero: No sir, just looking to pay a good friend a visit!
Guard: Say, why would our good sir Balandran be friends with someone with a ride like that….and say, you look familiar too…
Romero: I keep all my expensive cars in my garage, if I drove my fancy cars people would surely track me down and threaten me for them. You get too flashy people get envious ya know? And as for your other point, no clue what you're talking about!
Guard: No wait, you're Stephen Romero! You're that guy that's been up in my bosses business!
Romero: What?! Not all bald black guys are the same! Have you ever seen Stephen Romero wear sunglasses?
Guard: Can’t say I have, but still, i’m not quite convinced, can I see your ID?
Romero: Sure! Just hold on a sec….
Romero reaches into his pocket, grabbing his wallet, taking out a card, before flinging it into the guard’s face!
Guard: AH-
The guard is momentarily distracted, fumbling with the card, which we eventually see to be a grocery store rewards program card. As Romero then FLOORS his gas pedal, and drive right into the gate! Crashing through it, and breaking through it! Leaving the gate a crumpled mess, as Romero shields himself for a moment from the damage done to his car by doing that, as we see a blown windshield, and damaged front end, Romero getting through it miraculously unscaved. Seeing that the jeep is going no further, Romero bails out the car, and sees several guards rushing to the formerly gated area right behind him. With seeing this, Romero bails out of there towards the mansion, as we fade out on the scene.
We then cut into the venue for the first time! Getting a panning shot of Forwell Hall located in Fanshawe College, located in London, Ontario, Canada! A hype crowd is on hand, as we see one portion of the crowd isolated from the rest, all holding up signs supporting GiGi♥. As we then cut to our commentators.
Paisner: Hello everyone! Welcome to another edition of House Party coming to you live from Fanshawe College! I’m Allen Paisner-
Woodbridge: And i’m Mark Woodbridge.
Paisner: And what a show we have tonight! Featuring a beat the clock challenge to determine the stipulation for the independent title match at the upcoming PPV, and if Joey McCarty gets in at all! We see Tyler Dylan seek to prove he deserves second chances, as he takes on Viktor Ivanov in anticipation for a re-match with Ikbal Rizwan for the QWF Championship! Plus much more! We can’t forget our starting match however, we send it to Javier in the ring!
We then indeed cut to Javier, wide smile on his face, seeming excited for the following night of action.
Javier: Dear Audience, the following is a triple threat threat match, set for one fall, with a 30 minute time limit! Introducing first…
STUPID by Ashnikko comes through the speakers, as GiGi♥ appears on the entranceway, heavy make up applied, and equipped with a pastel pink wig. She begins to skip down to the ring, waving to her notably sized fan section in the crowd.
Javier: From Montreal, Quebec, Canada, weighing in at 120 pounds, sponsered by GT Racing, this is GiGi♥!
GiGi’s fan section: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Rest of the crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Paisner: Here comes GiGi to the ring, making her WiR debut! She’s made a very large name for herself as an internet personality through her instagram, tik tok, and patreon. Now I,even in my middle age, am basically required to have at least a modest understanding of all these things in order to promote WiR and give us as wide of an online presence as possible, as well as assist our wrestlers in building theirs as the head of this promotion. However, I get the feeling my partner Woodbridge, perhaps does not understand quite as well.
Woodbridge: I don’t need to learn how the hell kids these days make their money, all I need to see is someone who clearly does, and seeing as she’s a young woman putting a ton of effort into crafting her appearance and personality for a wide audience, that usually means one thing, a lot of men with expendable money are willing to spend it on her no matter how mundane the reward, or high the prices. Isn’t there something nowadays people would call many of her fans?
Paisner: Simps, Mark, they’d be called simps.
Woodbridge: Oh! So that’s what Kaitlyn was talking about!
Paisner: Indeed it was. And bringing that fanbase in here is very good for us, i’m not sure how many of them get it, but they’re sure as hell willing to spend the money. Now, as for GiGi’s skill itself, while this is her WiR Debut, it is not her wrestling debut. She was one of the contracts WiR acquired when we bought QWF that we did not part ways with. She already has quite a few wins, and has proved herself quite dangerous and crafty indeed.
GiGi continues her skipping down to the ring, waving to her fans as she passes them by, before reaching the ring apron, and rolling into the ring. Where she promptly takes out her phone, and begins snapping pictures of herself in the ring.
I Am The Fire by Halestorm as Oona Slash comes out through the curtains. Coming out wearing a baseball cap, chewing bubblegum, and a custom baseball jersey, this one in the “home” design of white with orange and red pinstripes. Carrying a baseball bat with her, taking practice swings with it.
Javier: And introducing next, from Rahway, New Jersey, weighing in at 143 pounds, Oona Slash!
Crowd: YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
Paisner: Now, another WiR Debut! Oona Slash down to the ring, and from the footage we’ve gathered from her on smaller independents, she is one hell of a fighter! Bringing a mix of high flying and stiff striking, and as we can see from her outfit, an x-factor in that baseball bat whenever it’s legal. And considering this is a one fall triple threat match, it very much is. The high flying coming from her norse side, taking after the legends of the Valkyrie, and the brawling from some presumably less than civil games of baseball.
Woodbridge: She’s also very much capable of taking a beating and coming back on the other end the victor, she’s practiced striking in several different versions of the word, and the one relevant to us, is that she’s a down and dirty street brawler type. It’s not fancy, but it packs one hell of a punch. ‘ Oona continues her way down to the ring, practicing the baseball swing, before seeing a young girl up near the front in the crowd who looks very excited to see here. Oona walks up to the gal, as ringside crew hand her a pen, using it to sign the cap, and handing it to the young gal.
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Oona then circles around the ring, finding a trash can near the announcer’s table she spits her gum into, and handing off her baseball bat to Maurice Chondon, before sliding into the ring, awaiting the final woman in this match.
I’m Yer Dad by Grlwood sounds throughout the venue, as Kaitlyn Casey Jones makes her way out, a partially drunk bottle of vodka in her hands that she takes a quick swig from, before looking out to her opponents in the ring, a smile forming on her face as she begins to make her way down.
Javier: Introducing next, from Cardiff, Wales, weighing in at 200 pounds, Kaitlyn Casey Jones!
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Paisner: Now, by far the most experienced wrestler in this match, Kaitlyn Casey Jones down to the ring.Whether that makes her the favorite by this point might be questionable though, her record in this revival of WiR has not been the most positive, even if her one victory is a very impressive one over former tag champs D&B.
Woodbridge: I think it’s largely a switch for her these days, she’s mainly here to drink, have fun, land some good hits in to people without much regard for results, but sometimes that switch is flipped when she’s reminded that she fucking despises Mark Dutch.
Paisner: And we have to wonder, how much is that switch flipped from her brief comments? She seems to regard her opponents in this match as very attractive women, and god knows what effect that could have on her today. The attractiveness she sees in her opponents could psych her up for the match and have her try a bit harder than she recently has, or it could turn her into a full on disaster lesbian, only time will tell.’
Kaitlyn makes her way down to the ring, seeming able to function mostly normally on the amount of alcohol she has consumed, slapping hands with fans as she makes her way down to the ring, before stepping onto the ring apron, through the ropes, and onto the turnbuckles to throw up a metal salute to the crowd! Before hopping off the turnbuckles, as Mia So Hung checks if everyone is ready, and getting nods from everyone, calls for the bell!
DING DING DING
As the bell rings, Kaitlyn and Oona put up their guard to brace for a fight, but GiGi doesn’t seem to do the same, in fact, pulling her phone out as she goes to the center of the ring, and begins speaking to both Kaitlyn and Oona.
GiGi: Wait! Before we start, we may not get a moment like this again! Lets take a girl’s night selfie sisters!
Kaitlyn seems to go along with with, getting behind GiGi as she raises her phone up, while Oona looks more suspicious and tepid about this, approaching towards GiGi slower and more hesistently. Kaitlyn throws up a very lazy peace sign in the background of the shot, as Oona mimes swinging a bat, as GiGi snaps the picture!........then tosses a back elbow into Kaitlyn’s head!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
GiGi tries to quickly do the same thing with her opposite arm on Oona, but Oona ducks under the elbow, and grabs GiGi’s arm! Wringing GiGi before tossing her onto her back! And very quickly before GiGi can do anything, jumps up for a double foot stomp into GiGi’s ribs!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
GiGi sits up from the force of the stomp, gasping for air after the stomp right into her chest, as Oona runs the ropes, and comes back with a forceful penalty kick to the chest of GiGi! Putting her right back to the mat!
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Paisner: GiGi both getting a picture to sell to her fans, and trying to lure Kaitlyn and Oona into her trap at the same time! But Oona not fooled! Taking out GiGi with vicious moves!
Woodbridge: It was a good idea from GiGi, get a picture with two other gals, because well, you see how large her fan section is? If there’s that many people simping and spending money on content with just GiGi, think of how much bank GiGi can be rolling in by selling content with two other gals! And I think it was pretty likely Kaitlyn was gonna fall into it, both with her recent lackadaisical attitude, and with the one thing she said about the match being that she’s simping for her competitors. But Oona catching on, and making GiGi pay for it!
GiGi lays on the mat, clutching at her chest, as we see Kaitlyn recover from being elbowed, and walk up to Oona, the two competitors staring each other down!
Paisner: Well, we know from a lot watching her how proficient Kaitlyn is in her power and brawling, and Oona seems to be very much adept at tossing strikes herself! But she’d be standing up to a much taller, much heavier person! If I get the right impression on what she’s about to try, I worry she may just be physically outmatched!
Oona shoots a look of intensity at Kaitlyn, as she comes in to shoot a forearm up into the chin of Kaitlyn! Then another! And another! And another! Unleashing a flurry of strikes into Kaitlyn! Backing her all the way to the ropes! Once Oona has Kaitlyn on the ropes, she goes to run to the opposite end of the ring, bouncing off the ropes! But as she comes rushing back at Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn comes to enough to charge forward, and intercept Oona with a destructive lariat! Oona spinning around in the air from the force of the lariat!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Paisner: And my concerns seem to be coming to fruition! Kaitlyn just turning Oona inside out!
Kaitlyn then drops into a cover on Oona!
1! No! Kickout from Oona!
Kaitlyn then gets right back to work, picking Oona up to her feet, and shooting a European uppercut into her chin! Then another! And another! And another! And yet one more before getting Oona dazed and backed into the ropes! Kaitlyn then whips Oona into the ropes, and as Oona bounces off, Kaitlyn mows her down with a shoulder block!........but Oona kips-up to her feet right after! And jumps up to catch Kaitlyn with an enziguri!
Crowd: WOAHHHHHHHHHH!
Woodbridge: Oona fighting back though! It's gonna take more than that to take her out Pais!
Kaitlyn is stunned on her feet, as Oona goes to run the ropes! But as she comes back, Kaitlyn intercepts with another euro uppercut! Oona holds at her chin for a moment, before responding with a kick to the side of Kaitlyn's chest! Kaitlyn holds at the kicked spot for a moment, grimacing a bit, before coming back with another euro uppercut! Oona recoils for a moment, before shooting back with a second side kick! Kaitlyn tenses her face in pain, but responds with yet another uppercut! Which is met with another side kick! Which is met with another uppercut! Which is yet again met with a sidekick! Which is met with...GiGi getting to her feet, and screaming at both of them.
GiGi: Hey! What the hell do you think you were doing messing with me trying to have a girl's night moment Oona!
GiGi's fan section: YEAH TELL HER GIGI! WOOO!
Paisner: Didn't like….she instigate things?
Oona and Kaitlyn stop their fighting, turning their heads to look at the angered GiGi.
GiGi: And Kait! Why didn't you stop her huh? You just let girl's night be ruined?
GiGi then steps forward, and slaps Oona in the face! Oona stumbling back, holding at her cheek!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOO!
GiGi then next slaps the face of Kaitlyn!......who does not stumble back, but instead responds only with a blush and a smile!
Crowd: WOAHHHHHHH!
Paisner: So uhh….she really was not lying when she said she was simping huh…..
GiGi looks confused, as Kaitlyn puts her hands behind her back, and maintains her smile, seeming to invite another slap from GiGi! GiGi catches on, bringing her arm back to rev up as much as possible for the next slap, and beginning to swing! Kaitlyn closing her eyes in anticipation!.... Which allows GiGi to simply stop mid-motion, and kick Kaitlyn in the knee instead! Dropping her to it!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
GiGi: Sorry sweety, that type of request is reserved for top tier patrons only! Turning her head to the crowd Only $1000 dollars a month at Patreon.com/GiGiV!
Paisner: And that's a cautionary sequence there! Folks, if you must simp for someone, please practice caution! Some will take advantage like GiGi just did!
GiGi then hooks Kaitlyn's head, and looks to plant her into the mat with a kneeling ddt! But Kaitlyn uses her strength to block! GiGi not having near enough power to send her down! This frustrates GiGi, who lets go of Kaitlyn’s head, and just kicks her hard in the back! Kaitlyn tensing up in pain, as she falls onto all fours, where GiGi then just starts to stomp on Kaitlyn’s back!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
When GiGi is satisfied with her stomping, she grabs Kaitlyn’s head again, and brings her up enough to be able to DDT her! But Kaitlyn manages to block again! GiGi’s face is filled with frustration, before suddenly, she gets some help! Oona coming over, grabbing Kaitlyn’s head as well, as the two fall back to spike Kaitlyn into the mat!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Woodbridge: GiGi not having the strenght to spike Kaitlyn on her own, but that’s one of the advantages of triple threats, no matter how different people you are, it’s always in two people’s common interest to take out one of the others, so you can find help in places you usually wouldn’t find it!
Kaitlyn is laid out on the mat, writhing out clutching at her head, as while both Oona and GiGi are on the ground from falling back to deliver the ddt, GiGi tries to go in with an eye poke to Oona!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
But Oona catches’s GiGi’s arm!
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Oona stands up with GiGi in her grasp, bringing GiGi up in the process, as she wrings GiGi’s arm and goes to flip her onto her back! But GiGi learned from last time this happened, and flips through it to land on her feet! GiGi then quickly gets low for a leg sweep to Oona! Tripping her up, followed by getting up into a handstand, before falling forwards to bring her leg down on Oona’s neck for a leg drop!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Paisner: GiGi showing off a bit! Impressive display of athelticism! GiGi into the cover!
1!
2! No! Oona out right at 2!
GiGi grimaces in frustration, as she grabs Oona, and whips her into a corner! GiGi then quickly rushes, and nails Oona in the head with a high knee! Stunning Oona, as she grabs Oona’s arm, and whips her into the opposite corner now! Following Oona yet again, this time nailing her with a running forearm shot! Oona groggily stumbles out of the corner, as GiGi then goes to run the ropes, as she comes back to attempt her “Vine” spinning heel kick! But Oona manages to come to just enough in time to get out the way! GiGi lands on her hands and scrambles to her feet, trying to rush back to Oona, this time trying to shoot a forearm in at Oona, but Oona sidesteps! And with her left leg, catches GiGi mid-run with a superkick! Absolutely decking her to the mat!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Paisner: Vár! Oona catching GiGi with the lefthander! Oona into the cover!
1!
2! No! GiGi kicks out!.........As she also perform a ahegao face right as she sits up!
GiGi’s fan section: YEEEEEEEEEEEEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Rest of the crowd: Various disturbed noises
Paisner: Oh...um…..I don’t think I have words folks…
Oona is very off-put by this, backing away in disturbance and confusion, but her affected emotional state allows GiGi to capitalize, quickly reaching in, and raking Oona’s eyes!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Oona writhes on the mat holding at her eyes, GiGi smiling at her handiwork, as she grabs Oona by her hair, and lifts her up! But suddenly, as she has Oona in her grasp, Kaitlyn is back to her feet, and rushes in to mow GiGi in half with a spear! Folding the very light GiGi!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Paisner: SPEAR! KAITLYN BACK IN, AND DESTROYING GIGI!
Oona drops to the mat after GiGi can’t keep grip of her in the midst of being speared, as Kaitlyn is on her hands and knees for a moment, catching her breath, trying to get some energy back, before grabbing GiGi up, and whipping her into a corner! Kaitlyn follows GiGi to the corner, and meets her with a crushing lariat! GiGi sinks down a bit in the corner, as Kaitlyn turns her head, and sees Oona crawling to the corner on the opposite end, and pulling herself up, as Kaitlyn then shouts out-
Kaitlyn: YOU WANNA SEE MORE OF THAT SHIT?
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Kaitlyn smiles at the crowd’s approval for violence, as she rushes over to the opposite corner, and now clobbers Oona with a lariat!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHH!
Oona sinks down a tad bit in the corner, clutching at her chest, as Kaitlyn charges back off to the other corner, and clobbers GiGi with a second lariat!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
GiGi sinks down a bit more, clutching at her chest and desperately trying to get oxygen back into her body after a deflating blow like that. As Kaitlyn then rushes back to the opposite corner once more, and clobbers Oona for a second time! Sweat flying off Oona’s body with the impact of the lariat into the chest, as she sinks down a bit, but her size in between Kaitlyn’s and GiGi’s means not quite as much as GiGi. Kaitlyn then rushes back to GiGi, and clubs her with a lariat once more! Then rushes back to Oona to clob her with a third lariat! Then back to GiGi for the fourth lariat to her! Then back to Oona for her fourth lariat took! Oona begins to dazily stumble out the corner, as Kaitlyn seems to get an idea from this, whipping Oona into the same corner as GiGi! Oona hitting GiGi, and sandwiching her between her body and the turnbuckle! Kaitlyn then rushes towards both competitors, as she jumps up, and hits a stinger splash onto both of them!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Both Oona and GiGi stumble in a daze out the corner, before falling over! Oona rolling out the ring, leaving just Kaitlyn and GiGi in the ring! GiGi slowly tries to crawl up, gasping for air, not much strength in her, as Kaitlyn backs off and awaits. GiGi begins to slowly push herself up, taking time with how beat up and tired she is, but as she gets into one knee, Kaitlyn begins to run the ropes! And just as she gets to GiGi, GiGi gets to her feet hunched over, providing the perfect positioning for Kaitlyn to jump, and bring her leg down on GiGi with a Scissors Kick!
Paisner: GiGi going Under The Knife! The leg of Kaitlyn hard into the back of her neck! Kait into the cover!
1!
2! No! GiGi kicks out…..and does another ahegao face as she sits up!
GiGi's fan section: YEAHHHHHHHHHH!
GiGi then when finishing the ahegao, goes to poke Kaitlyn's eyes….but Kaitlyn hasn't moved and looked away from GiGi, in fact, she's leaning towards her, and casually grabs GiGi's hand. Where she….just sensually locks her hand with GiGi's, blushing and smiling like an fool as she leans in close to GiGi.
Paisner: I uhh…..I don't think GiGi doing….that face is a strategy that takes into account the opponent liking it…
GiGi now seems the one caught off her guard, not knowing remotely how to react to someone responding by being turned on instead of weirded out. As Kaitlyn then says-
Kaitlyn: Would uhh….would you consent if I uh-
GiGi: Not even for top tier patrons.
Kaitlyn: Damn…..wanna just go back to beating each other up then?
GiGi: That sounds much better.
Kaitlyn and GiGi then both back off of each other, as they circle around one another, GiGi rubbing at the back of her neck, as Kait then makes the first move! Rushing at GiGi with a knee trembler she barely dodges!
Crowd: WOAHHHHH!
Paisner: Kaitlyn going right for the dagger! Attempting Knee Hao, one of her finishing maneuvers!
Kaitlyn turns around after missing GiGi, and jumps up for an Enziguri! But GiGi ducks under! Kait scrambles to her feet, ducking a roundhouse tosses by GiGi, and responding with a short range lariat! But GiGi catches her arm, twisting it and wringing it out, before dropping Kaitlyn to the mat by her arm, and hooking in an armbar!
Paisner: ASMR! Aka Always Smashing Men's Rights! A move name that would make far more sense in pretty much any context but this specific match, but still just as effective regardless!
Kaitlyn screams out in pain from the armbar! GiGi shredding her arm apart! Kait begins to use her strength to crawl near the ropes, but GiGi yanks back on the arm! Causing more screams from Kaitlyn, as she's stopped in her tracks! GiGi gives a devious smile at her handiwork, before….
THWACK
She's hit in the back with something! Collapsing and releasing the hold in the process! As we see a figure over her, Oona Slash with baseball bat in hand!
Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Paisner: OONA! With her baseball bat, coming in to preserve her chances at victory in brutal fashion!
GiGi flops on the mat from the unexpected strike, tensing up in pain, as Oona kicks her out of the ring! Kaitlyn holds at her arm from the damage done to it, while Oona drops the bat and backs off, waiting for Kaitlyn to make it back to her feet. Kaitlyn heads to the rope, grabbing herself up by it, and after some struggle making it back to her feet. Kaitlyn turns around, stumbling a bit, as Oona charges at her, before sending Kaitlyn flying into the corner with a shotgun dropkick! Kaitlyn hitting the corner hard, as Oona rushes back to the opposite corner, before running with blazing speed, and flying her boots into Kaitlyn’s head!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Kaitlyn stumbles out the corner in a complete daze, barely able to stay on her feet, as Oona then mimics holding a baseball bat, swinging it, then running towards the ropes! Jumping onto them, then coming off for a corkscrew overhead kick! But Kaitlyn manages to come to at just the last moment, and moves out the way! Oona manages to rotate herself so she lands on her feet, as Kaitlyn goes back into a corner to catch her breath. Oona sees this, and goes to charge at Kaitlyn in the corner, but as she nears, Kaitlyn gets a boot up, and Oona runs straight into it!
Crowd: OHHH!
Oona stumbles back, holding at her lower face, but recovers enough as Kaitlyn is still resting to go and charge Kaitlyn again! But only to again run into Kaitlyn getting her boot up! Smacking Oona in the face once more!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Oona stumbles back yet again, but this time recovers quicker, a look of intensity in her eyes, as she charges at Kaitlyn again, but this time, Kaitlyn steps forward, catches Oona, and throws her up into the air
Paisner: GIVE IT A- WAIT NO!
But as Oona is up in the air, she manages to reverse, catching Kaitlyn’s head on the way down, and spiking her into the mat with a DDT!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Paisner: OONA REVERSING IT! SPIKING KAITLYN DOWN! SHE MAY HAVE KAITYLN WHERE SHE WANTS HER!
Kaitlyn is spiked into the mat hard, falling sprawled out and limp, as Oona senses her opportunity, rushing to the turnbuckles, running up them, before jumping off with a low-angle moonsault!
Crowd: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Paisner: The Valkyrie Splash II! Oona sending all her weight down forcefully onto Kaitlyn! She hooks the leg!
1!
2!
NO! Suddenly, GiGi grabs Oona by the leg from the outside, and yanks her out the ring! Oona faceplanting on the outside, as GiGi rushes into the ring to cover Kaitlyn herself!
1!
2!
3!
DING DING DING
Javier: Dear Audience, your winner via pinfall, at a time of 18:24, GIGI!
Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
GiGi cracks a huge smirk at her victory, pulling herself up by the ropes, with her breathing heavy, and some welts on her back from being cracked with a baseball bat.
Paisner: GiGi absolutely stealing this one! Oona had Kaitlyn pinned, but GiGi yanking Oona out, and taking the spoils for herself like a vulture!
Woodbridge: But that’s the risk of multi-man matches! Anything can happen at anytime because there’s more than one factor to deal with! It’s not honorable, but being in the right place at the right time is a skill of it’s own!
GiGi exits the ring, as she walks over to her fan section, and sits up on the barricade in front of them, taking out her phone, and taking a selfie with all her fans in attendence! She then hops off, blowing a kiss to her fan section, where we see the ravenous fans all jump up and push each other around to try and be the one to catch it, as GiGi makes her way to the back, with ringside staff assisting Kaitlyn to the back, and Oona Slash, with anger in her eyes, storms out on her own weight.
COMMERCIAL COURTESY OF THE SHOW HOST, FANSHAWE COLLEGE
We return from break backstage, where we see Mark Dutch is still wearing his super hero costume. Beside him is Louis Blackwater, shirtless.
Dutch: You don’t think the mask might.. reveal my identity?
Blackwater: No one will ever know! I think it’s great you’re gonna keep wearing it. I just -
Dutch cuts him off with a hand as he stares down something off camera.
Dutch: Look who it is...
The camera pans over and Maverick stands besides the two, in a very spiffy looking suit, looking them up and down. Dutch takes one step closer, staring at Big Money Mav. The history between the two creates a poignant sense of tension.
Dutch: Maverick…
Maverick:...it's Big Money Maverick, Dutch…
Dutch:...it's Super Dutch, Mav…
Maverick: it's BIG MONEY Maverick, Dutch….
Dutch: It's SUPER Dutch, Maverick….
The two men stare at each other before Blackwater intercepts.
Blackwater: Well this is weird.
The two lock eyes for a few more moments , tension still in the air, before Maverick shakes his head, turns around and walks off as Dutch mumbles to himself.
Dutch:....It’s Super Dutch….
Blackwater: What a sellout.
Dutch nods his head and sighs.
We come back to the mansion, as we see Stephen Romero in the process of running from Balandran’s security force, Romero is making his way towards the house, where we see at the front entrance, at least 4 security guards at the door! And so, Romero runs off to the side to run around the property! This doesn’t get rid of the problem entirely though, as the guards at the front notice Romero, and start chasing after him as well!
Romero: under his breath...shit, how the hell do I lose ‘em….
Romero then notices something, a ladder leading up to a top balcony, the rails on the balcony and the windows near it shining as if someone had just cleaned them and left the ladder there.
Romero: A-ha!
Romero then turns, and starts to scale the ladder! The guards behind still chasing after him! Romero, in antithesis to most wrestlers, shows rather superb ladder climbing ability, scaling it quick! But not quite quick enough, as guards begin to make their way onto the ladder as well! Beginning to make it unstable under all the weight on it! Romero nears the top of the ladder, but the ladder only gets wobblier and wobblier, to the point where Romero has to bail! Jumping from it to the balcony just as the ladder tips over from the weight on it! Romero grabs the balcony’s edge, and hauls himself on top of it! The ladders falls over, as the guards bail and land roughly on the ground! Moaning in pain on the grass on the outside of the mansion. The remaining guards grab the ladder, and go to set it back up to retry climbing towards Romero, but before any of them can step on, Romero grabs the top of the ladder, and yanks it off the ground! The guards are left yelling at Romero from the ground, as Romero then lifts the ladder, and tosses it onto the roof to keep it out of anyone’s reach!
Romero: through heavy breathing and panting Woo! That’s that out the way…..all I gotta do is find where Balandran is now!
Romero then open the doors leading into the top floor of the mansion from the balcony, a confident smile on his face, as he seems to enter Balandran’s bedroom. As we see a very large California King Bed in White and Gold, with canopy drapes over it. End tables on both sides, and shelves full of trinkets, from awards handed to Balandran by city councils, competitions he’s won, honorary degrees from private universities he’s donated to. And of course, just straight up gaudy displays of lavishness with gold and silver statues and figures littered around the shelves.
Romero: God, certainly you wouldn’t need to keep proving you’re rich at some point right? I drove by some poor rural towns to get to somewhere like this that’s this removed from society, how much you could’ve helped those places with the things on these shelves only he will ever see…
Romero then goes over to the endtable, where he sees something, a checkbook Balandran left behind, which Romero promptly picks up.
Romero: A checkbook eh? Maybe I could write some blank checks in his name……...nah I don’t fuckin’ know cursive, nevermind. Rich schools barely teach that shit let alone mine.
Romero then inspects the two other things on the desk, one a family picture of Austin with his wife Lucia, and his son Austin, which he picks up.
Romero: Family picture?.....eh, don’t know enough about his family to have anything against them, i’ll leave that be.
Romero then picks up the other picture frame on the desk, picking it up from it’s position closest to and pointing right at the bed. This one of just Balandran himself, in a sparkly red suit seemingly for a photoshoot.
Romero: His own picture on his fucking side of the bed? Closer to him than his damned family picture? Ah hell naw with this one!
Romero then chucks the picture frame at the wall, smashing the frame itself, before Romero grabs the picture, and tears it apart.
Romero: There we go, that’s more like it! Now, let’s see what bullshit this man’s got in his bathroom.
Romero then opens a door to his side, opening what is indeed an entrance to a bedroom…..and also opening a hiding spot for a security guard! Who jumps out and begins tussling with Romero!
Romero: FU-AH!
The guard takes advantage of getting the surprise, ramming Romero into one of the beams supporting the bed canopy, knocking all but one corner of the canopy down onto the bed in the process, the guard then seems to try and detain Romero by getting Romero’s arms around the beam, but Romero knees the guard on the stomach! Doubling the guard over, as Romero then grabs him, and rams him into one of the shelves! Knocking many of the statues and prize tropies off the shelf, as they fall to the ground and shatter! Romero then turns around, the guard still in his grasp, as Romero eyes the bed, before lifting up the guard, who desperately struggles, but can’t escape Romero’s strength, who sends the guard onto the bed with a uranage! The impact of it collapsing the bed, and meaning the guard gets an unpleasant feeling of crashing into the wood and bed frame under him rather than just the soft mattress! Leaving the guard in a heap on the destroyed bed! As Romero surveys the damaged room.
Romero: …….he might actually have legal grounds to sue me on this one, I best get out.
Romero then exits through the main door out of the bedroom, as we reveal a pathway branching off into several different rooms, presumably a mix of kid and servant rooms, as Romero takes one step before stopping, as the scene zooms out, and we see an entire legion of security guards filling up those pathways.
Romero: I presume carrying my pay-per-view loser’s purse on me ain’t enough to convince all of you to let me through?
The guards all respond with a stoic silence.
Romero: Well come get some then!
Romero and the guards charge towards each other, as the scene abruptly cuts out.

2020.05.11 19:29 triplered_ Are most personal assistant jobs scams?

I initially applied for a completely different position off of Indeed. The recruiter had an auto-message sent to me asking for me to email my resume to them. The next day, the recruiter told me the position was already taken (now it is off of Indeed itself). The recruiter referred me to a different email / position, but supposedly by the same company, within a couple of hours I received this email.
I believe this is a scam, looking more on the internet. I am however going to leave this up (if that's okay) since there are a couple different types of email drafts.
https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/59k43n/how-i-got-caught-in-a-terrible-personal-assistant-scam - "Here’s how one of these typically goes down: Someone contacts you through an old job posting, saying something to the tune of, “Hey, the position you applied for has been filled, but I need a personal assistant.”

2020.05.06 09:42 sparts305 Lost and Confused young black gentlemen here.

So I've been in a mental stalemate for 4 years. To some people this username may be a bit too familiar... Especially with recent events on here, I apologize in advance. Things have deteriorated to the point where I had no one to talk to but you guys for the millionth time, since all the communication lines are all but broken down with family and friends. I know I should take it to a subreddit that is more along the lines of mental health and advice but I wanted to get some advice from my fellow Torontonians I thought it would be great to listen to you guys since I've read some amazing responses to other people's threads concerning their own mental health problems. Well, here I go. I am 23 years old currently living in Ontario Canada.previously lived in Florida, U.S born in Jamaica within the first 12 months of living out of the U.S realize how crappy the situation has gotten over there mass shootings, race war baiting, police brutality , economic shitfest galore Wants to believe in what's actually going on behind closed doors on the world stage discovered many conspiracy theories and government cover ups from MK-Ultra, Gulf of Tonkin, Op Northwoods, to 9/11 researched extensively on reasons and theories behind the race related problems in the world can't accept these theories of mass brainwashing and division among ethnic lines on a global scale without being an Anti-Semite. I wanted to know who's running the world stage... I got too caught up with the wrong crowd of people online. Instead of finishing grade 12, I procrastinated a lot... Surf the web on pseudo politics and current events. I have a thing for looking at alternative news. Right wing nonsensical pseudonym studs and satirical content online. I spent more time reading conspiracy theories than studying, got very depressed and self loathing, fighting with my siblings and parents over failing grades and poor sleeping habits because of my addiction to reading bullshit on the internet. So here I am. I literally hanged out with a bunch of racists online and actually engaged them, they got inside my head, my well being slipped, poor attendance, poor grades, came only short of 3 credits. They made me think that skin color determines your fate and how you will live your life finds articles and graphs on race comparisons via skull fragments and Intelligence Quotients and SAT national scores and crime and poverty stats finds out the truth about my own race refuses to accept the fact that he belongs to a worthless race tries to disassociate myself from my race in an attempt to be seen higher than my own people gets bombarded with questions by non-black people about himself and black people in general apologizes and explains to non-black people every single time when one of my own commits a crime and is broadcast on national television academic marks plunge at the start of senior year due to "I'm a failure"mentality and hopelessness of my future thinks race mixing will only have horrible effects on the offspring ( confusion of ones race or cultural identity and psychological problems will persist into their life) along with lower than average IQ and being vulnerable to certain diseases. This made me realize can't be with a different woman other than my own occasionally contemplates suicide because no non-black woman would want to be with me out of fear of abuse, failure to provide for ones family, no high salary career, not being able to become successful in life Those are the articles graphs that made me assume that I was in fact inferior to other races ... every time i reach a boiling point I try to reach out to the people who say these things so I made a Q and A thread on one of their forums (I.E /pol/ stormfront, thirdwave, thirdposition, politically incorrect forums. Instead of trying to understand their mindset, I become indoctrinated in their ideology and which resulted in my warped view of society. I have huge anxiety over dating interracial because of those things said above. Due to my social awkwardness and not knowing how to speak to women in a flirtatious way without them getting freaked out by my futile attempts as being flirty let alone handle them, I've tried online dating websites but with a hit or miss mostly, apparently people can detect redflags just by looking at ones face or bio. I personally see my self as average or below average in looks For years I have tried to weight lift and eat well, though I have excelled well at weight lifting my diet has been very poor as of late so I have to deal with being "muscle fat". So pretty much I've failed in getting a partner so I had to pay for sexual favors, an occasional trip to the massage parlor or brothel to release stress is usually the case for me and to fend off the feeling of being lonely, for those who think its messed up, I can assure you I treat everyone person I encounter in the sex trade with the utmost respect and dignity, and I 100% advocate for a well regulated and safe environment for all involved in the sex trade industry! For more than 4 years I've been at a standstill and I don't know what I should do. I can't seem to reinforce my confidence or self esteem. I took a lot of things to heart I got a weak mindset from the day I was born. It's bad enough that I didn't finish my secondary diploma (due to mental health issues), and that I continue to disappoint my family and friends, But unfortunately, I recently got myself into a situation where I have to get my friends involved in a homicide investigation (long fucking story I'm not going to talk about it) and I fear getting in trouble with the law for not passing the needed info (by convincing my best friend to talk to the detective, but they don't want to get involved out of fear for their privacy and safety) or losing my 5+ year relationship with them if I try to bring it up to them which will most likely result in a big argument and us not talking to each other again. Each day this world is becoming more and more toxic, and each day it gives me another reason as to why I should no longer live on this toxic earth where people call you racial slurs, kill you for being something they don't like, get treated like crap even if you done no harm to anyone. I want off this shit show of a ride. It's all so tiresome. Back in 2018 I Thought I was doing the right thing by coming forward in hopes of testifying against a former friend in the disappearance and murder of a local woman back in 2017 but all I did was get myself involved in more unnecessary problems that I have no absolute control over. In this world filled with hate and despair how does one continue on? Every now and then I picture myself leaping from the Maj Mac/400 bridge to my inevitable fate, if I keep this up it may soon become reality.

Webcast Insights -Blockchain for the Legal Industry: How Is the Coronavirus Crisis Making Adoption More Imminent?
Notoriously, the legal industry has always been slow at following technology innovations and adjusting to up to date digitally performed processes. By tracing the different steps of the legal industry evolution, we find that Kleroterion was a sophisticated innovative system used in ancient Athens that allowed citizens to participate in the lawmaking process by a random selection of jurors, as a way to circumvent manipulation and corruption of the system. Modern justice systems, established in the 17th and 18th centuries, provided regulations for the new industrial and economic development. However, with the start of the 21st century, they began to show their limits mostly within their structure built on papers.
The advent of the internet further highlighted these cracks, even though there have been signs more recently that times may be mature for disruptive technologies to finally enter the legal space too. The EU and its member states like Estonia, along with the US, Australia, China, have been pioneers in developing advanced Information Technology systems that led to the creation of an e-justice structure. They paved the way to other countries to embrace Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things, which are now identified as the best technologies enabling a more efficient, secure, and faster legal system worldwide. In Estonia, e-filing was first considered back in 2005 and since then it’s been developed to become a central point for the exchange of information between authorities, from the police to prosecution offices, courts, prisons, tax and customs board, lawyers and citizens. Thus saving money and time by reducing the entanglements of bureaucracy.

https://preview.redd.it/9h56sgdb4zw41.jpg?width=5616&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7c637d271f0fe52b0d0cf752417956e8a713754f
In Canada, the cases of British Columbia and Ontario set as examples for exploring the electronic documentation system as opposed to paper, already back in 1996. Initially, it brought to little implementation due to the high costs, scaling, and complexity of the matter at the time. It was only in 2009 that Ontario’s Ministry of the Attorney General approved $10 million in funding to create a system intended to permit enhanced functionality such as e-document management, court scheduling, financial and automated workflow capabilities, and the introduction of online services to the public.
British Columbia’s case was more straightforward than Ontario. In the early 2000s, the Canadian Court Administrative Technology Suite drafted a program to integrate a system of connection of e-documents between law offices, the registry, the judicial, and the courtroom. It would include e-Courtrooms, provided they had implemented e-court files and links to the civil and criminal court information systems.
In the last couple of years, along with electronic improvements to the legal system, countries have looked at ways to use blockchain smart contracts in disputes, ownership of intellectual property, and any time of the agreement, to save money and time while offering more reliable and secure processes.
In the first webcast around blockchain technology, its impact on the world and the benefits it may bring to society, Block.co CEO Alexis Nicolaou discussed the legal industry and its reaction to the current coronavirus crisis with two prominent guests, legal practitioners Christiana Aristidou and Yiannos Georgiades.
Both members of the Cyprus Bar Association (and the Cyprus Blockchain Association), Christiana Aristidou has her own legal practice as Christiana Aristodou LLC, she is the Co-founder and Vice President of the Cyprus Blockchain Association, an International Business and Technology Lawyer and an ISO/TC 307 Blockchain Committee National Delegate. Yiannos Georgiades is a Commercial and Corporate Lawyer, also the founding partner of Georgiades & Associates. Yiannos is also a member of the Law Society in the UK as a European Registered Lawyer and President of the Cyprus Chapter of the European Court of Arbitration and Mediation for commercial disputes (CEAM).
Christiana was first introduced to Bitcoin while studying for a degree in technology law at the Queen’s Mary University of London in 2009. “The white paper was given to us by our professors for study,” recalls Christiana. “The fact that it had just been invented made me more curious about it. When Ethereum and its smart contracts were launched in 2014, I realized the tech could have a real disruptive nature, especially with regards to trust. As lawyers, we base legal services on trust. Then, you can imagine how relevant this tech had become for me”.
Nowadays, blockchain is in 2020 top tech trends and the first of LinkedIn’s most in-demand hard skills for 2020. “Compound annual spending growth for blockchain is established in the range of 62% during the years from 2018 to 2023, led by the banking industry followed by manufacturing, process manufacturing, and professional services -continues Christiana- Why these industries? Because they are distinctively transactional industries and blockchain, of course, disrupts transactional businesses”.
“In relation to the current Covid-19 situation, the first semester of 2020 has revealed a strong increase in the use of the technology, therefore it may have contributed to its adoption but its growth this year was already predicted, regardless of the crisis ”.
Coronavirus has promoted the necessity for companies to further investigate digital work to satisfy future demand for a remote working style.
How could the judicial system become more efficient with the adoption of advanced technologies?
Yiannos believes that “Due to the current restrictions everyone rushed to use the existing technology. Those who already used it did not have a problem in adapting, the others just realized how important and urgent it has become to be more digitized.
Introducing e-justice in our lives will reduce costs, time, it will safeguard security, establish transparency, and the authenticity of transactions. We can also reduce the disputes by introducing e-justice together with blockchain through smart contracts”.

https://preview.redd.it/bjqkmor7bg451.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0552b631a7f23351a2ab5be5fcaa43380406242e
In line with the progress made within the EU e-justice system, Cyprus Minister of Justice, Mr. George Savvides, wants to introduce e-justice in the frame of other reforms, supported by Deputy Minister of Research and Innovation Mr. Kyriakos Kokkinos.
Meanwhile, in China, three provinces have introduced blockchain within their judicial system highlighting the reduction of the carbon footprint as one of the benefits since physically traveling to the courts would be avoided.
China is a pioneer in the introduction of e-justice combined with blockchain. Some courts developed their own platforms and introduced the first internet court as an incubator to develop and implement it in the normal physical courts and using blockchain as a way to authenticate documents was so useful during the coronavirus crisis” — continues Yiannos.
Yiannos is also co-founder of the Metropole Alliance, the European association of lawyers.
“There is a strong collaboration among members to promote e-justice via education. Every member country can influence their own local authorities to implement e-justice as fast as possible. The EU has committed to speed adoption of the technologies for over a decade and as the world becomes more digitized, now is the time to implement them in the legal system also. Validation of documentation through blockchain would make processes faster and would be a real benefit for justice”.
Christiana believes that remote work is here to stay, it’s one of the crucial steps to business digital transformation and needs to be implemented strategically and seen as a part of a whole plan.
“Home office and cloud are not enough, we need to make sure that all systems allow us to stay connected in remote and not remote with instant communication, and be able to track work progress continuously. The ability to develop new leadership skills becomes another factor in times like these. Leaders should further improve the way they relate to their teams, they need to be able to identify talents, technical skills, the personalities of teams, they’re all important aspects of our projects.
Lawyers should also start learning how technologies like blockchain, AI, and IoT can improve our services. My advice is to partner with companies like Block.co because it helped me serve my clients more securely and efficiently. Before blockchain and Block.co, registering intellectual property was a lengthy, tedious, and tiresome process. Witnesses were needed, declarations of every movement were required and legal documentation ended up being kept in a fireproof safe corner of the office. I don’t do that anymore because Block.co simply gives me a hash and that way the intellectual property and the copyright owner are protected forever on the blockchain”.

https://preview.redd.it/oc3lajgfbg451.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cdcd37d7df906102b7daaa4a020ef8f89223eeb1
Yiannos reinforces the concept: “As a company, we are doing well due to another crisis that made me wiser. A few years ago we were victims of electronic fraud when our emails were hacked and attackers asked for money from our clients. One client alerted us whereas another did not and paid the money to the hackers. So I decided to improve our security and look at ways to tackle the issue digitally. We were also victims of a ransomware attack but it turned out to make me more aware and educated about security. That was the time I learned about bitcoin as those hackers wanted some BTC to unlock our server”.
While full implementation of blockchain in the legal system is still regarded with skepticism by many lawyers that believe it will take some of their work away, Yiannos reckons it will actually be an opportunity to access new and increased streams of revenues. “Lawyers can easily generate money by learning how to transform normal contracts and codify them into smart contracts” while Christiana points out that “In a blockchain-based future, enabled by the Internet of Value, lawyers will be service providers on a programmable society infrastructure”.

2020.03.07 17:24 Hitch42 Audio-Drama.com links from March 1 to March 7, 2020

Audio-Drama.com is an online directory of audio drama and spoken word websites, with at least one new link added to it each day. As of this post, there are 4,625 published articles. Here are the newest articles from the previous week:
  1. H.G. Wells Has His Regrets An audio drama in which science-fiction author H.G. Wells invents a time machine.
  2. Confessions of a Small Town Florist Susanna Hightower needs an escape from her life in New York. When she happens upon an ad for a flower shop for sale in Cartman, Texas, Susanna finds herself on a path to small-town life in search of the peaceful way of life she's been so desperate to find. But in a town the size of Cartman, she soon discovers that arranging flowers isn't the only job description. Keeping the town's secrets is a full-time job of its own. She must discover for herself which secrets are best kept and which secrets are big enough to threaten the town and its way of life.
  3. Aishi Online Do you know who you are? That was the question the game, known to a select few as The Funhouse Hallway was asking its players to answer, but Aishi, MJ, and The Forum were never able to complete it. That was in the early days of the internet. Aishi and MJ grew up together as the internet came into its own. But suddenly, Aishi was gone, leaving MJ to make sense of a person who didn't give her much if anything to work off of. After all, you can be anyone online. In light of certain experiences during her podcasting efforts, MJ has decided to tell the story of the friend she didn't quite know. But whose to say who she'll find... After all, you can be anyone online. A tale of life on the social internet, and the gradual unraveling of the narratives we spin...
  4. Temporal Light Zaneta Aurelia Azis Parker has a normal life. Seriously. It's normal. She might be the daughter of a prestigious neurologist who caught the eye of the people connected to big pockets, but she just works in the office by running the daily operations and at home by taking care of her siblings. Considering she can remember never wanting this life, some would think that's odd. But she doesn't. Until she sees an image of herself at a fundraising dinner in a modern piece done by a secretive artist. It is hard to see, what with it being hidden and only visible by a trick of the light. However, Zaneta is drawn to the one spot where the lights could have shown her this version of herself. With that, a facade starts to fall, and Zaneta is left to piece everything together. First things first, you would suppose, who is the mysterious Lucent?
  5. LeVar Burton Reads The best short fiction, handpicked by the world's greatest storyteller. In every episode, host LeVar Burton (Reading Rainbow, Roots, Star Trek) invites you to take a break from your daily life, and dive into a great story. LeVar's narration blends with gorgeous soundscapes to bring stories by Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury and more to life. So, if you're ready, let's take a deep breath...
  6. Superstition Superstition is a southwestern gothic mystery audio drama about a private eye, a bartender, a cop, a missing girl, an old mystery and one very spooky town in Arizona.
  7. Fan Wars: The Empire Claps Back Two passionate Star Wars fans on opposite sides of the Last Jedi debate argue via Skype after their favorite forum closes down. If you love Star Wars (or call yourself a proud member of any fandom), you'll love this romantic comedy told via conversations.
  8. Fire Bird Fire Bird tells the story of Prince Ivan Tsarevich, youngest son of a powerful Tsar who leaves the comforts of the Mortal Lands to venture into the Wilds, where creatures of myth still dwell and danger lies around every turn.

  10. Sketches by Zod Sketches by Zod: The Wedding is a one-woman audio show that follows twelve Zodiac Women at a wedding. Each episode is narrated by a different Zodiac Woman, the voice of whom is inspired by the sign's characteristics. Fractured. Disassociated. Absurdly perspectival. The Wedding's many voices imitate today's social media mindset. Zod help us, ya'll.
  11. Other Tales Media A series of one-shot audio dramas about a variety of subjects. All works are fictional and written by myself. Episodic stories coming soon!
  12. The Combat Codes We fight, so the rest shall not have to. This is the first verse of the Combat Codes, the mantra of Grievar-kin.

2020.02.18 06:12 TechExpert11 is flighthub legit?

Traveling has always been a dream for many but the internet has made it more accessible to virtually anyone in the world. With online travel agencies, people can now have access to airline tickets at an affordable price. Today, we’ll take a look at a certain online travel agency called FlightHub. They are a Canada-based business that provides online travel booking, specifically flight tickets, hotel accommodations, cruise trips, and even car rental services to different places in the world. However, many people are asking: “Is FlightHub legit?”

About FlightHub: a brief look at the company

Before the rise of the internet, travel agencies only provided services mainly via one-on-one appointments. This used to be FlightHub’s set up about 20 years ago prior to their decision to become an online travel business. The company operated from a small office in Ontario, Canada where they served local customers. Back then, their team merely comprised of travel experts and travel booking professionals.
Sometime in the nineties, FlightHub grabbed the chance to expand their customer base by using the internet—a new technology that was still in its early and experimental stages. They hired web developers, marketers, and customer service representatives to help them develop and maintain their website FlightHub.com
Now, after more than two decades of serving travelers, they have accumulated thousands of customers. FlightHub has also partnered with more than four hundred airlines, thousands of hotels, and several other travel service suppliers in the world.

A look at their services

FlightHub allows people to book the following travel services online:
According to their website, they provide more options, our best prices, less headaches. With their continuous growth and constantly expanding partnerships with airlines, I can see why customers are enjoying FlightHub’s services.
I have tested their claim on offering the cheapest prices and I must say that I am impressed. Most of the time, FlightHub managed to beat even the OTA giants like Expedia and CheapOair. I said “most of the time” because sometimes, FlightHub’s prices can increase and then go down again. I am not really sure why this happens.

The benefits of using FlightHub

FlightHub is a useful tool that allows users to book online, either via a computer or a mobile smart device. People who do not like to wait in line to get a chance to talk to travel experts, those who want to get a booking done quickly and easily, as well as those who are always looking for hotel and flight discounts are the people who should use this website.
While FlightHub is meant to be used by anyone looking for cheap tickets, I noticed that their services are ideal for people who don’t usually travel. The simple website design and the use of standard terminologies (e.g. “e-tickets”, etc.) makes it perfect for people who don’t have much knowledge about the complexities of the booking process.

What people think of their services

One effective way to properly determine a business’ performance is by looking at the customer reviews. Sure, the internet is a harsh place and people are bound to exaggerate complaints, but there are fair and legitimate reviews that are meant to help other travelers.
So, I will post some of the latest FlightHub reviews that I found to help you assess this organization.

2020.02.17 06:24 Sirsgirl Wondering if this can be saved. Hoping :’(

This is a super long post. I’m hoping some kind souls can take the time and help out a fellow DBer?!! A brief history of our entire relationship. Mainly because I am looking for some of the wonderful people in this sub to offer their advice if they have been in a relationship like this one, or perhaps worse. It is a DB, but also has many more problems, at least from my perspective. Regarding him: What’s your take on the neglect? Thoughts as to why? Can this become better with therapy? Have you personally gone that route and did it work? Can desire be regained? Regarding me: Can I recover from the trauma some of these things have done to me? Do I honestly expect too much? What else am I not considering in your opinion? Am I completely off base in thinking that if he only understood how much he has hurt me he would stop because he loves me? Is that too simplistic?
OP: 49 HLF. Spouse: 49 LLM. Married 3, together going on 8.
We were introduced while out at a bar one Saturday night for a kink event. I messaged him the next day at my friends urging, to come over to watch the super bowl. He agreed to come. During our text conversation that first morning he typed something that made me melt inside and immediately brought tears to my eyes. “There is a very beautiful, very zen dynamic to a good marriage. If both halves give to the marriage, both are sustained by the marriage. But it takes two willing, hardworking partners to make it work. If only one is giving , there is no zen, no beauty, and neither is truly happy”. I had told him that I was divorced. This is the line that hooked me in...
Super bowl arrived and he came over. We had pizza, desserts, drinks. My other friends left. The game ended. We still were talking, talking, talking. I liked this guy! The next day he called me. I was studying at a coffee shop. He asked if he could join me, five hours later we hadn’t moved! We pretty much were dating after that. We moved in together, we got engaged, we got married.
It has not been good. Not even before the marriage. But I adore this man. He is perfect for me in almost every way. He challenges me. He (mostly) cheers for me and supports me. He has intelligence so very different from mine that makes every day interesting (or it used to when we actually had conversations about things). He views so many things the way I do. We were sexually compatible. We wanted the same things. I thought we did. I had faith that I knew how to have a successful relationship and that I would make it happen. He loved me, so it would be easy I thought.
I first sat him down and had a conversation about my needs after our second or third fight. While arguing with me he either stopped responding, or ignored what I said completely and then pointed out something that I supposedly did to him to lay the blame for the argument at my feet. I say that he lives an “attack first” belief. I was usually hurt by the argument so I retreated. He would then a few hours later say something innocuous and I would usually respond and then he would go from there and suddenly we weren’t fighting? But I couldn’t do that. I needed to debrief after an argument. I needed to learn what pushed the other person’s buttons. I wanted mutual understanding so that we would not repeat the same arguments. Plus physically making up would be nice. Make up sex. So I sat him down and said “we need to talk” and I explained what I needed. I explained that I couldn’t just ‘sweep it under the rug’ and pretend nothing happened. I knew how destructive that would be long term and wanted to start this relationship right. Plus I wanted a kiss or sex! So I told him. I stressed how important it was to “fix” things after a fight. This has still never happened. It’s going on 8 years.
Prior to that conversation, the very first week we were dating, I had told him how important sex was to me. I explained that marriages die from lack of physical intimacy. I have personal experience in that area, I wasn’t just making this up! We had not even had sex yet at this point. I wanted him to know immediately that I expected a relationship to have a healthy sex life and that it was as important as any other aspect of the relationship. So he could decide. Before dating me. If he could keep up, so to speak!
The first year was okay, we had fights, but we also went out and still dated each other. We had a social life (maybe once a month but it was okay). We had sex. But it was not the same already. We had conversations about frequency. I wanted 2-3 times a week, he wanted maybe once a week. There has been no compromise from him. It was barely once every couple of weeks and now it’s been a year. We haven’t even been ‘monthly’ in a couple of years. He would promise things and then they would never happen. He would flirt and make me think that for sure sex would happen and then it wouldn’t. He bought items that we never used. Items that I had been so ecstatically happy about and was so turned on imagining and I showed that reaction to him. And over 6 years later it has never been assembled for use. I have brought that up many many times. He avoids the topic.
He had the opportunity to go and work out of province which would mean he would be gone for 6-8 weeks at a time but this would only be for a couple of years so we decided to do it. Things didn’t get better while he was away. I begged for something to keep the romance or the fun alive in the relationship. I suggested letters or cards, something to look back on years later. I suggested phone sex, or FaceTime. He shut that down immediately as not being “his thing”. Okay, but he never did anything at all while he was away that was for me. I got about a 20 minute phone call before he fell asleep each night. He worked 10-12 hour shifts. He would come home for two weeks usually. Two months at Christmas. And we would have sex maybe twice if I was lucky. Usually not the first day back. I would have loved to feel just once that he couldn’t wait to come home and fuck his wife. I would always be perfectly groomed, hair done and dyed, house immaculate, a cake baked, dinner prepped. Oh and I renovated his entire house while he was away so we could sell it. I did flooring in every room, 3 bedrooms, bathroom, living room. Built a fence. Made kitchen cabinets. Painted every room. Replaced the toilet and vanity. Put up new light fixtures. Myself. While he was away. It’s been a long running joke of me pointing to myself over top of my head and saying “sure thing”. He knows I am always always open for his business! But never once did he come home and kiss me with any passion and say ‘god I’ve missed you’. That’s all I needed. I’ve told him that straight out, in those words. But it’s like he doesn’t hear me? Doesn’t “get it”?
While he was out of province for work I purchased us each a copy of a popular couples therapy book and the accompanying workbooks. I sent them to him (after discussing them with him beforehand, and talking about therapy to help stop our arguing). I sent him the books, post-it notes, highlighters, pens (so he could make notes and we could discuss them). A card. Homemade treats that travel well. A framed photo of me and one of his dog. A homemade calendar with all kinds of silly meaningful-to-us dates and pictures on it. I sent a package at least once each time he was out there. To remind him I loved him and that I appreciated him and his sacrifice. I even drove out there one spring for his 3 day weekend off work. I put his dog in the car and set off across country to surprise him. I drove 3600km each way. To surprise him and put a smile on his face and give him some love. It took me three and a half days of solid driving. That’s how much I love this man and the measure of things I am willing to do for him.
He wanted to move from Ontario to BC. We came out to BC for a vacation. I didn’t have any objections. If he wanted to go then I would go. I was in a spot in my career when I could be flexible so I said sure why not? Even though I got offered my dream job a few weeks before we left. I turned it down and off we went, When I pointed out that it would all be new to me (he had lived here before), he assured me he would take me to places, to parks, to beaches, to towns up the island, to islands around here. I was so looking forward to exploring this new place with the love of my life. He told me that the place where we were moving to had lots of things to do, lots of activities, lots of outdoor activities. He said he’d take me. He still has not taken me to any of the places that I have specifically told him that I want to go to and see.
He has not acknowledged by birthday except for the first year we were dating. (He bought me sex toys). A few years he was not home and was away at work. But he didn’t think to mail me a card even. Or have flowers delivered. He had internet, he had credit cards. Last year was the most hurtful yet. We had a fight again. He pointedly came into our bedroom and took his cpap machine and went and slept in the other bedroom. He was ignoring me. I call it the “ignored and abandoned”. Left alone, no voice, no one to talk to, no one responding to my texts. In a place where I know no one except him and a few coworkers but no close friends or family. No one I can call or go hang out with. So I need him. But I get silence. So my birthday morning comes. Nothing. He didn’t speak to me. He didn’t say the words “happy birthday” to me. He didn’t buy me a cake or a present. I have explained childhood trauma around birthday cakes and how important they are to me and he still doesn’t buy me one. He says there was a card but I have told him before that just because an envelope sits on a counter I will not assume it is for me (no name on the front). If he wants to give me something give it to me face to face and say something nice, something romantic, something happy, something sexy and flirty. So he ignored me on my birthday. His wife. The woman he says he loves. On my birthday. Birthdays are a big deal for me. I spoil people. I make them a homemade cake. I never forget them. I make sure to let them know they are special. I spend a few months planning the perfect gifts or getaway. Either making things or hunting down items. I don’t expect that level of care from him, but something!!
I had nothing for Valentine’s Day. No verbal wish of “happy Valentine’s Day” either. But then he didn’t wish me “happy anniversary” the week before either. We got married on Super Bowl Sunday. FYI: I’m the football fan, not him. He’s into hockey. He did buy me a Valentine’s gift the first year we were together. More sex toys. That we don’t use.
I love Christmas. I threw a New Years party every year for almost 20 years. It was who I was. An over the top, everything thought of, Martha Stewart-esque house party. He doesn’t like Christmas and completely ignores New Years. He doesn’t think people should come over to your home to visit or for a party. New Years is still a difficult time of year for me because a part of my identity was throwing that party and now the day is just empty. Is it too much to ask for some of these days to be acknowledged? For me to feel spoiled and pampered by my husband? To feel wanted and cherished and desired? To be purely happy. Because if this is seriously too much then what the hell do we get married for?
I don’t have ‘date night’. I’ve asked for it. So many times. I work a 4 on, 2 off schedule. Plus casual shifts . I work hard. I worked 31 shifts in 29 days, without a day off, this past Fall. I’m an RN so they are always short and need people to work OT. So with my schedule we only get a weekend off together every 6 weeks. He works Monday to Friday. He does not like to do anything on a work night, so even if I’m off during the week we aren’t going out. That’s okay. I cook for him each day. Dinner is ready every day when he gets home. A made from scratch meal, after I worked an 8 hour or 12 hour shift. I pour his drink, get his pills out, set up everything for him to feed the dog, dinner waiting, dishes all done and tidy house. I put the heating pad on in his recliner (he has a physical job), I put the tv on shows or hockey games for him. He’s appreciative of the food, always is, but then it’s just reruns of Big Bang and Star Trek, Reddit, and falling asleep on the couch. Which I could be happy with if it included some conversation, a board game, some cuddling, a make out session, spontaneous sex. Not every night, but maybe once or twice a week. Just one of those things. To keep the romance alive. To feel connected to him. I’ve asked for him to plan dates, I’ve hinted that they should include sex. I’ve given him a month plus notice of when our next weekend off together is. All I’ve asked is he plan something fun for both of us. An activity. Not just dinner out somewhere. Even a movie, because we never go. Plus plan to have sex with me. I thought maybe if he did plan something and look forward to it, the anticipation would help foster some sort of hunger for me. Some interest. Enthusiasm. Thank you to this sub for introducing me to the phrase “pity sex”. I now see that was what was wrong with our last couple of encounters. He was going through the motions. I said it was bad. I told him. But I couldn’t quite say why. Now I know - pity sex.
The night before Valentine’s Day he told me “I have lost my desire for you”. The excuse a few years ago was his sleep apnea was uncontrolled. It was, that is true. But I told him the first month of dating that he had sleep apnea (I’m a nurse). He never went to get diagnosed or a machine. For years. But he couldn’t function properly. He didn’t want sex. He was tired all the time. He got a machine. Then it was his blood pressure is out of control. He says it’s my fault. The conflict in this relationship is causing his high bp. But that was his excuse last year for no sex, his high bp and he didn’t feel well, his sex drive was gone. Now it’s he finds me physically repellent. No desire for me.
I said it’s over. I will not, and more importantly, cannot stay with someone who doesn’t desire me. Because when you desire someone you do things to make them happy. I know, I do things for him daily. Dozens of things he doesn’t even notice, automatic things you do when you love someone and you want to look after them. You want to make their life easy and happy.
I should mention that I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon last week. A bad tear in an unusual spot. So I am not allowed to weight bear on one leg and am at a disadvantage right now. Everything takes four times as long to do, plus I’m off work. He actually said to me when I said that I would not stay with someone who didn’t desire me “do you think it’s a good time to be thinking divorce when you can’t walk”. Wtf was that? Do you think he was threatening me? I don’t understand what he thought that comment could do to help the situation.
I have not been a saint in this. I am trained to be self-reflective in my nursing practice. I am reflective in all aspects of my life. I reflect on words, events, actions. I research better ways of doing things. I ponder what I could do differently. I look at reactions my actions caused. I modify my behaviours. I am always trying to grow and be better. But I have stepped up my demands. I have asked for what I needed from this man. In great detail so no misconceptions could arise. I then begged. I pleaded. I’ve been rejected. I got angry at the neglect. I yelled because most of the time I have no voice by being subjected to forced isolation by him, or I feel ignored and not heard. But I have also begged to not use our bed as a weapon. He still does. He hasn’t slept here in a few weeks. Or he comes back for a day or two and then leaves again leaving me devastated.
Yesterday I demanded he address ignoring my birthday last year. Not even speaking to me on the day. Thinking about it causes great big, heaving, breath stealing sobs. The pain is that deep. Still. It’s my birthday next month. A big one. Every single friend has been having massive celebrations, surprise parties, trips. I dread pretending again this year when I get ignored again. So I demanded he address how he could cause that much pain to me. He said “I’ll put my response in text”. After telling me that I love “playing the victim”. I waited all day. Checked repeatedly. Nothing. I finally asked where it was. He sent me 9 texts on gaslighting. Which he claims I do to him. I don’t even fully understand what it is or how it would apply. No mention of the immeasurable hurt that he inflicted that he still doesn’t think he needs to make up for almost a year later? Am I wrong in asking for that?
So anyway, that’s about all of it. Can therapy help a man cherish his wife and date her? Can therapy bring back desire? More importantly if you were me do you think you could get over the past 7 plus years of neglect and hurt and start fresh with this man? Or am I asking too much of therapy? My therapist earlier this year that I dropped after 4 sessions basically told me to leave him. She was trying to build my self esteem.
I keep going back to that quote from the beginning that he said. I even wrote it on the bedroom wall. It keeps me hoping that the man who wrote that is in there somewhere still. It’s kept me here.

2020.02.11 18:11 leyniaz Private used car sale from family in Alberta, registering it in Ontario.

Hello PFC!
I have a question regarding purchasing a used car in Edmonton, Alberta and getting it over to Toronto, Ontario. Let me know if this is the wrong place to post!
I need a new car since my current one isn’t in super great shape. My aunt called over the weekend and informed me that she is actually wanting to get rid of her 2013 VW Golf Wagon and upgrade to an SUV. She has offered my partner and I her vehicle! Woohoo!
This would save us a good chunk of money. The car is in incredibly good shape, high KM from highway driving, but great interior condition, new summer and winter tires. This would last us at least another year and a half while we continue to save and invest. We will ship it via truck or train to Ontario for roughly $1600.
I am trying to figure out the exact paperwork required to register this in Ontario successfully. Since she is my aunt, it cannot be gifted, but she would sell it to me for super cheap ($100 maybe as proof of purchase).
I called Service Ontario and they were not overly helpful, and I’m finding conflicting information online on how to go about this. What I was told on the phone is that I need a bill of sale from her, and then bring that to Service Ontario where I provide all the usual documentation for registering a used car (insurance, license, plates, original permit from her for transfer etc. No UVIP because it was bought in Alberta). This seems too easy and straightforward considering it is Service Ontario... And for it being cross-province. I must be missing something....
My main questions are:
Do I pay HST or GST only since Alberta does not participate in the HST program? Do I pay RST instead?
Do I pay tax on the price on the bill of sale (which is what Service Ontario said), or the BlackBook/wholesale price of the vehicle (what the internet has said)? Is it up to the discretion of Service Ontario at the time of registration?
If I pay only $100 for the car, will that affect my insurance policy and how much coverage they will provide?
Should the bill of sale reflect the date that the car is in my possession upon delivery in Toronto? I’m assuming yes, as I have six days to register in Ontario, and shipping from Alberta will take two weeks.
Is this even worth the hassle?! Has anyone done this before?
TLDR; Used car being purchased for cheap from my aunt in Alberta. How do I register it and pay the proper taxes, and what is the correct paperwork I need for Ontario?
Thank you!!
