By Joe Richer Registrar, Real Estate Council of Ontario Sat., May 11, 2019 I’ve noticed your column never gets into the nitty-gritty details of how to get the best deal on a home. What sort of questions should readers ask you? Thank you for the kind words. This is a different type of real estate advice column in the sense that it’s designed to support an informed real estate market in Ontario by reminding buyers and sellers of their rights and responsibilities in a transaction. I always enjoy hearing from my readers. Last month, I wrote a column about purchasing an investment condominium that was based on a question asked in casual conversation by some fellow hockey parents. Others in the discussion were quite interested, so I thought their query deserved a wider audience. The purpose of this column is not to tell you how to market your home, or how to negotiate the best deal on a property. I can’t provide legal, marketing or financial advice to … [Read more...] about 4 key tips home buyers should follow: Ask Joe

The martial arts enthusiast has recently launched a TV and film production division, One Studios, and plans to announce its first film next month. As his camp is full of MMA exponents with inspirational backgrounds, Chatri formed an idea to turn their lives into films with the aim of creating real-life heroes to inspire children with fewer opportunities. “One doesn’t only create fighters but also heroes who are appreciated by the world,” said Chatri in an exclusive interview during a recent visit to Bangkok. “If they gain fame, why not have a career in films to set an example for children to follow their footsteps.” The One chairman explained that many Thai world boxing and martial arts champions had tough upbringings but had no financial security after retirement. A career in acting, just like former WWE champion Dwayne Johnson or “The Rock” has achieved in Hollywood, should provide a promising option for these boxers when they … [Read more...] about I have a dream: One chief eyes Hollywood and 2028 Olympics
I was not an easy client to advertising agencies because I insisted that the agency should understand my business and must figure out the way I think. I was decisive and I get frustrated when the agency does not know what I want. Other cases are different, and most advertising people know this. They complain that clients want attention-grabbing innovative ideas that nobody has ever thought of. So the creative people dream up a lot of ambitious stuff and present these creative, big, and bold designs only to have clients shake their heads and wince. They claim that the studies are not what they are looking for and then direct the agency towards a campaign that is safe, timid and boring. The fact is, many clients do not know what they want. Honestly, I was the opposite type. I wanted advertisements to be: “In your face,” edgy and bordering on the ridiculous because the fashion industry caters to the young, and the young demands a lot of excitement and creativity. I knew what I … [Read more...] about What do clients want?
MANILA, Philippines — Dr. Evan Antin has been dubbed Sexiest Beast Charmer and World’s Hottest Animal Doctor. But beyond such labels and screen-friendly looks is a 13-year work history dedicated to animal welfare and wildlife conservation. The 34-year-old, L.A.-based veterinarian and social media star is expanding the platform for his passion and advocacy via television. He goes on culturally-enriching trips and exciting rescue missions for some of the world’s most endangered and exotic creatures, including Palawan’s water monitor lizards and bearcats or binturongs, in his first-ever series Evan Goes Wild, premiering May 13, 8:05 p.m. on Animal Planet. The STAR interviewed Evan last Monday, ahead of the show’s pilot episode, to discuss his visit to the island-province of Palawan, which is also known as the Philippines’ “last biodiversity frontier.” He has been to the country three times, with the latest for Evan Goes Wild. … [Read more...] about Evan goes wild over Palawan wildlife
Charlize Theron does not want to talk about politics at our interview for the new romantic comedy Long Shot, even though she plays the US secretary of state preparing to make a run for the presidency. She tried to explain at our interview at the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills: "Obviously, we are selling a very specific film, and I feel like when we start talking about real politics, it throws the fun out of this movie, and that is the clickbait that everyone throws out there. "Don't kill me here, I am selling a comedy. Help me out, I am begging you." Okay, so why this movie then? The Oscar-winning 43-year-old South African actress said: "I pick projects where I ask myself, 'Is there something in this that scares me that I haven't done before? That I feel like maybe I can't do but want to try?' I never thought I would be in a romantic comedy. Ever. So that is fun and also scary." In Long Shot, which sneaks today and tomorrow before opening on Thursday, Theron is Charlotte Field, … [Read more...] about Doing romcom ‘fun and scary’: Long Shot star Charlize Theron
