  • A sign that the world's richest are about to hit a rough patch

    Quietly, over the last three months, Sotheby's auction house has seen its stock lose a quarter of its value. This is, in large part, due to its high-end clients. Something is about to happen to them. The polite way to say it is that — as Sotheby's CEO Tad Smith put it earlier this month — they are about to get more "discerning." The frank way to say it is that they're about to get walloped by this year's choppy markets.  Sotheby's stock price is warning of this. Yes, we're seeing record-breaking sales for some items, like a Modigliani painting sold by rival Christie's for $170 million earlier this month, but if you look below that tier the picture isn't so great.  "The Modigliani sold last week

  • Ban on willing sex between underage teens and adults ruled constitutional

    A cornerstone law aimed at protecting teens from sexual exploitation by adults is constitutional, even if the sex is clearly consensual, Ontario's top court has ruled. "For an adult to suggest that, by excluding him from the close-in-age group, Parliament has made the law overbroad is to misunderstand the protective purpose of the law," the Court of Appeal ruled. Court files show the accused in this case was 21 years old when he began a romantic relationship with a 15-year-old girl he had known for several years.

  • Refugees in B.C.: Coming to Vancouver will be tough, immigration lawyer says

    As families, churches and community groups make plans to sponsor Syrian refugees arriving in B.C., they may want to find locations outside Vancouver, says immigration lawyer Richard Kurland. On Tuesday, the federal government laid out its plans to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees before a revised deadline of February 2016, including 10,000 by private sponsorship. The high cost of living — especially housing — in Vancouver means integration could be difficult for refugees without family ties and support, said Kurland, who is advising groups that are considering private sponsorship.

  • It's time to test everyone in Canada for HIV/AIDS, says Dr. Julio Montaner

    The best way to eliminate HIV and AIDS in Canada is to test everyone for the virus, regardless of whether they are at risk or not, according to one of the world's leading experts on the disease. Dr. Julio Montaner, the director of British Columbia's Centre for Excellence in HIV and AIDS, says that in B.C. alone, 2,000 of the 15,000 people with HIV/AIDS don't even know they're infected and so are more likely to spread the virus. It's estimated one in six people have an advanced form of HIV by the time they're diagnosed, and that more than half of new infections are transmitted by people who don't know they have HIV.

    About 1.2 million Canadians will book off sick from work to shop on Black Friday, but a new study suggests they’ll get slightly better deals if they can wait until Boxing Day. Colliers International, in a first of its kind look at the so-called deals on these major retail holidays, studied 44 products on flyers for nine national Canadian chain retailers in 2014 and compared prices between the two big shopping days. The company found better prices on Boxing Day for 36 per cent of the products, while Black Friday offered a steeper discount for only 16 per cent of products. “Black Friday sale prices, on both sides of the border, are often touted as the lowest prices of year,” Colliers says in its report, released Monday.

  • Adele Lied to Jimmy Fallon in a Valentino Dress (12 photos)

    When Karl Lagerfeld, the reigning King of Fashion, fat shames you, there’s no better revenge than to step out in some gorgeous outfits. For Adele, who became the target of the Kaiser’s out-of-touch body opinions a few years back, she proved that even people who are “a little roundish” can drop mics both literally in regards to music and figuratively in the sartorial sense. And looking great — and doing even greater things — is like one large metaphorical f** you (to him, all her exes, and anyone else that’s ever doubted her).  The singer, with her album set to debut on November 20 after a three year hiatus (she settled down, had a baby, and spent time gathering source material) has been doing just that, with fashion-forward music videos any designer would give up green juice forever to be a part of, public appearances in sparkly gowns Kate Middleton might eventually wear, and street-chic ensembles that style bloggers will emulate with step-by-step shopping details. From multiple Jenny Packham gowns to statement coats (including one inspired by Mr. Snuffleupagus), the hits don’t stop for Adele at ballads.   Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
