  • Billionaire divorce enters settlement talks instead of court

    The widely-followed divorce battle between billionaire hedge fund star Ken Griffin and his wife Anne Dias Griffin may not go to trial after all.

    Your suspicions about the caliber of the singles available on Tinder have just been confirmed: Martin Shkreli, otherwise known as the guy who jacked up the price of AIDS drugs and earned himself the title of “Most Hated Man in America” is on the app. The story could have ended there, but Eve Peyser, the young woman in question, decided to challenge her Tinder match about his unconscionable price-gouging. Because she took screenshots of everything, we get to see her call Shkreli out for thinking he is the “Snowden of AIDS drugs” and tell him capitalism is evil. Shkreli defends his controversial actions, but it’s clear this virtual match won’t be translating to a date IRL.

Canadians were reminded of “barbaric cultural practices,” and the federal government’s preference for mainly non-Muslim Syrian refugees was reiterated.

Omar Khadr is exhibit A; Zunera Ishaq is exhibit B. With an October election, it won’t be surprising to see political machinations at our expense.” Yet the sheer brazenness of the Conservatives
