Trailer Park Boys add landmark Halifax eatery bars to growing business empire

first_imgHALIFAX – The Trailer Park Boys, Nova Scotia’s supposedly dopey mockumentary stars, are amassing a business empire spanning an online comedy network, production studio, beverage deals, marijuana branding and now a landmark Halifax restaurant and bar complex.The entrepreneurial acumen of Mike Smith, Robb Wells and John Paul Tremblay — Bubbles, Ricky and Julian — belies the dim-witted campy characters that have attained cult status and prompted Netflix to pick up the franchise, now filming season 12 in Truro, N.S.Following the launch of Liquormen’s Ol’ Dirty Canadian Whisky two years ago, the boys recently released a new beer, Freedom 35 lager, in partnership with Toronto’s North American Craft, or NAC Importers Inc., and have also teamed up with Organigram Inc. of New Brunswick to sell branded marijuana products once legal weed kicks in.Now the East Coasters’ Swear Net Holdings, the firm behind the online entertainment subscription network SwearNet, is venturing into brick and mortar business.Along with Gary Howsam, producer of the hit television show, and Halifax bar owner Brad Hartlin, the Trailer Park Boys have bought up the Halifax landmark Economy Shoe Shop Cafe and Bar from local businessman Victor Syperek.In the same deal, the business partners also acquired the former Seahorse Tavern space, a live-music venue located below the Shoe Shop, and brokered the joint ownership of the Toothy Moose cabaret upstairs, previously co-owned by Smith (Bubbles) and Hartlin.Through Swear Net Holdings, the three actors and Howsam own 75 per cent of the three venues, while Hartlin owns 25 per cent.Together they now control over 18,000 square feet of prime bar and restaurant real estate on Argyle Street in downtown Halifax across from the Nova Centre, a $500-million hotel, office and convention centre complex slated to open later this year.“Right now it sucks that it’s under construction and the street is closed,” said Smith, better known as Bubbles, the character that sports thick, Coke-bottle glasses and plaid shirts. “But when it’s done we’re going to have a permanent patio. It will be the premier location in downtown Halifax.”Hartlin said the team is investing up to $2 million into overhauling the entertainment complex, with a big lump of cash going into a brand new Shoe Shop kitchen and renovations to the decor.While the Shoe Shop has a fresh coat of paint and some new lighting, the eatery has kept the same “vibe,” with its stained glass, large artificial tree and mural, he said.“It’s a symbol of Halifax,” said Hartlin, who played hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for two years before returning to Halifax and eventually opening a sports memorabilia store and Bubba Ray’s sports bar. “With its big diamond sign … it’s really an iconic landmark.”There are still subtle hints superfans of Trailer Park Boys will appreciate though, like Freedom 35 beer on tap and possibly a Julian rum and Coke on the drink menu.But the downstairs live music venue will take on more of a distinctive laid back, Sunnyvale Trailer Park atmosphere, Smith said.The Toothy Moose, meanwhile, has run its course.The fun-meets-trashy cabaret will become an upscale lounge called The Lab, Smith said.“The Toothy Moose has had a kind of a down-and-dirty country bar feel and we wanted to do sort of the opposite, more of a high-end L.A. lounge kind of thing,” Smith said. “It’s going to be painted out all white with a lot of colour-changing LED lights, very moody, with bubbling beakers and staff in lab coats.”The five business partners are staying mum on how much they shelled out for the Economy Shoe Shop name and restaurant, as well as the former Seahorse Tavern space.“We started a mile apart,” Hartlin said of negotiations with Syperek. “Then some others came to the table that were interested in the space and that drove costs up.“It took about two years from the initial conversation. But we eventually closed the deal April 1.”For the Trailer Park Boys, the bars and restaurant come after years of translating the television show’s popular brand into business deals and merchandising.The online merch store includes the usual smattering of sweaters, shirts, ball caps and key chains as well as the more unique swearing badge set of buttons, bobbleheads and stickers.But the boys have been branching out, snapping up two buildings in an industrial park across the harbour in Dartmouth for production.“In some ways we feel like we’re just getting rolling,” Smith said. “We’re constantly biting off more than we can chew but then we make it work and we make it fun.”last_img read more

The City of Meknés is Smiling for Few Days

By Amine MechaalMeknés – For the 10th annual International Forum of Agriculture (SIAM), which takes place every year from the end of April until the beginning of May, the city of Meknés turns into one of the most beautiful cities of Morocco. Unfortunately, this beauty ends with the end of the Forum.Meknés is located in the north of the Kingdom, 140 kilometers east of the Moroccan capital, Rabat. It was built by the Moroccan Sultan Moulay Ismail in the 10th century, when it served as the capital of Morocco. It is known for its historical monuments and is one of the most desirable destinations for tourists. One month before SIAM, Meknés residents noticed unusual reforms and rehabilitations taking place in many parts of the city. A multitude of cleaners and gardeners were staffed to work days and nights to clean the streets and plant trees in almost every corner of Meknés.“I was amazed by the changes that Meknés has witnessed during the past few weeks. I hope this will last forever,” a shopkeeper told Morocco World News.“I have never seen trees giving fruits in less than one hour after they were planted, and flowers grow and flourish in one night, fountains which hadn’t worked for a long time were turned on…this is just unbelievable,” he added.The Urban Community of Meknés has also worked on the cultural aspect of rehabilation. It has organized many exhibitions throughout the city, artistic shows performed by international and local artists, and musical concerts in the L’agora and L’hdim areas.Some of the interviewees expressed their optimism to Morocco World News about the current changes that Meknés has undergone during this period; they said that this time something is different. The reason behind these optimistic views was highlighted by Adil Falah, the president of the Moroccan Association of Cultures and Arts, one of the leading associations in Meknés, in an interview with Morocco World News:“The changes and reforms that Meknés witnesses are done thanks to the SIAM (…) but what the great majority does not realize is that the reforms of this time are more solid and different. Since his appointment as governor last January, Mr. Mohamed Kadri expressed his disappointment with the present situation of Meknés, and promised to make it better (…).”The city of Meknés deserves more than what it presently has. Its historical monuments and sites annually attract thousands of tourists. However, the city infrastructure, equipment, and services are not enough for those tourists to enjoy their stay. This, of course, affects tourism in Meknés, and the image of Morocco in general. That’s why decision-makers should reconsider the current situation of Meknés and other marginalized cities and make the rehabilitations of spring a year-round effort.© Morocco World News.

Preparations for upcoming Syria peace conference on track says UN chief

“We expect the Syrian Government and opposition to focus hard in the coming days on making their delegations as strong and representative as possible,” Mr. Ban told a news conference at UN Headquarters in New York.“Negotiations will be difficult, but without them, there is only bloodshed and despair on the horizon. I count on those with influence to encourage the Syrian parties to come to the Conference with the serious intention to end the war and agree on a peaceful transition.” More than 30 nations have been invited to attend the conference, which be held in Switzerland in two parts, with the opening session in Montreux on 22 January 2014, and then moving on 24 January to the UN office in Geneva. It will be the first time the Syrian Government and the opposition meet at a negotiating table since the conflict started in March 2011.The goal of the so-called “Geneva II” conference is to achieve a political solution to the conflict through a comprehensive agreement between the Government and the opposition for the full implementation of the Geneva communiqué, adopted after the first international meeting on the issue on 30 June 2012, which called for the creation of a transitional government that would lead to holding elections.The Joint Special Representative of the UN and the League of Arab States for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, met last Friday in Geneva with counterparts from the United States and Russia, as well as with a wider group of countries to discuss the preparations for the upcoming conference. Mr. Ban said that after the meetings held Friday, “we are on track to convene the conference,” adding that the list of invitees is near complete. The conference will include the UN, the five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and the US), the League of Arab States, the European Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and 26 other countries. Mr. Brahimi said after Friday’s meeting that the participation of Iran has not yet been agreed. The Secretary-General said today that he hoped the question of Iran’s participation is resolved soon. “As I have said before, Iran needs to contribute to peace in Syria along with others in the region.” Meanwhile, Mr. Ban noted, the UN and its partners are doing “everything we can” to help ease the suffering. Over 100,000 people have been killed and 8 million driven from their homes, 2 million of them seeking refuge in neighbouring countries, since the conflict first erupted.“I call on the sides to free detainees, end sieges and allow greater humanitarian access. I appeal to them to reduce the horrific violence. I utterly condemn the recent use of so-called ‘barrel bombs,’ which has added yet another appalling dimension to the fighting,” he added. “All involved in this conflict should signal their intention to open the way for a new future.” read more

Oxfam chief executive under investigation over handling of sex abuse claim

first_imgThe original case will be considered as part of the independent commission announced by Oxfam last week, when executive director Winnie Byanyima promised to root out any wrongdoing at the charity and provide justice for anyone abused by its staff. It comes after the charity issued a formal apology to the Haitian government.On Monday, the charity officially released the findings of its investigation into relief workers sent to Haiti in 2010.The 10-page report concluded charities should be warned about “problem staff” – only for several accused of abuse to successfully take up future posts in the aid sector. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Mr Goldring, alongside the chair of trustees, Caroline Thomson, and Ms Byanyima, will appear before the Commons International Development Committee on Tuesday. The chief executive of Oxfam is the subject of an internal investigation over the handling of a sex abuse claim.On Tuesday, Mark Goldring is to face MPs to answer questions about Oxfam’s aid work in Haiti, amid allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation by staff responding to the 2010 earthquake in the Caribbean country.It has now emerged the charity chief is part of a probe at the charity, following a complaint made last month over how senior management had responded to requests to re-open a 2010 case involving allegations of sexual abuse.Gavin Stewart, Oxfam vice-chair of trustees, said: “Oxfam takes all complaints seriously and so this is being examined by a team that is independent of management and has no previous involvement in this case. I expect the team to report their findings to me on schedule, later this month.”The complaint related to events in late 2017 and was made by an individual who was not involved in 2010.”last_img read more

iPadsized BlackBerry PlayBook coming this fall

first_imgRIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook stacks up pretty well against the competition, at least from a hardware perspective. With a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and a pair of really nice cameras, the PlayBook holds its own against devices like the iPad 2 and Xoom. Some users, though, might not be thrilled about the PlayBook’s 7-inch screen when trying to pick the perfect tablet. The 10-inch displays on the iPad and Xoom are big, beautiful, and very tempting features.According to sources Boy Genius Report has spoken with at BlackBerry World 2011 in Orlando, screen size might not be a factor for potential PlayBook owners for much longer: a 10-inch PlayBook 2 could be arriving as soon as this fall. While BGR does specify that “multiple sources” murmured about the upscaled version, RIM has yet to officially confirm anything.One key advantage a 10″ PlayBook could very well offer is a higher resolution display — and that it could therefore run Android 3.0 Honeycomb apps. Most Honeycomb tablets so far have been released with 1280×800 pixel screens, so a bigger PlayBook would at least be capable. It remains to be seen, of course, whether or not it actually will run Honeycomb apps, but it’s a possibility since RIM has already demoed Android apps running on the current 7-inch model. At 1024×600 pixels, however, it might not be able to handle tablet-optimized Android apps.More at Boy Genius Reportlast_img read more

Vicky Soteriou found guilty

first_imgVicky Soteriou has been found guilty of plotting to kill her husband by the Supreme Court on Friday. In the trial which lasted two weeks, Chris Soteriou, Vicky’s husband, said he had no idea the attack was being planned and sobbed heavily in court when the guilty verdict was read out. Outside court, he said “justice has prevailed, it’s a good day, it’s a good result, hopefully we can close this chapter and move on”. “I want to thank my family, they’ve been the best, my friends, everyone that has supported me for the last eighteen months. “It’s been hell, hopefully we can just move on,” he said. Soteriou was brutally stabbed seven times and also had his throat cut by his wife’s lover Ari Dimitriakis as he and his wife were walking to their car after a night out in Fitzroy, Melbourne. He said his wife watched this brutal attack take place. The trial revealed the pair wanted to receive Chris’s million dollar life insurance policy. Dimitriakis, who pleaded guilty, has a reduced sentence of seven years for giving information on Soteriou. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

KMC Warned To Appear Before Lawmakers

first_imgBy: Kebba AF TourayThe Kanifing Municipal Council has been cautioned to appear before the National Assembly Select Committee on Local Government and Lands.This revelation was made yesterday July 30th, at the Legislative House, as a result of Council’s failure to respond positively to the committee’s call to bring forward their activities and financial reports over the years.Select Committee on Local Government and LandsMusa Amul Nyassi, the Member for Foni Kansala Constituency and Chairperson of the committee, said the KMC Management was supposed to appear before the Committee yesterday Monday, 30th July 2018, for consideration of their report, which was presented to them on Thursday; that their report was not well prepared due to some missing documents that is critical to the work of the committee; that the Management was supposed to appear yesterday Monday, 30th July 2018, but failed to show up.“KMC management is not showing commitment and respect to the work we are doing, costing us to adjourn sittings until after the recess. But we will put it through the Office of the Clerk, to send a strong signal to the Management of KMC, that we are not going to make it light for them, and this is the last time we are going to accept it from them,” said Nyassi.Nyassi said it is unacceptable and the communication that they will send to the Council Authorities will be very strong; that they have no time to waste. He cited that when Auditors carry out an audit, it is the institution that they audit; that as such, even whereas an audit exercise was conducted and completed, there was a change of Management, making it mandatory for the new Management to appear before them; that records are expected to be there, regardless of how old or familiar, one is with the office.“So those excuses are flimsy ones that this committee will not accept. We are putting it to them that on their next scheduled date, whatever the case, the management of KMC must appear and should not to be represented halfway. I want to put it on record that we want to see the CEO, Finance Director and the Lord Mayor himself, before this committee, and not their representatives,” he said.last_img read more

Encroachment Effort at MacDill AFB Leaves State Officials Frustrated

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The state of Florida this week agreed to purchase the residential development rights on a 25-acre parcel adjacent to MacDill Air Force Base in South Tampa even though the landowner will retain the right to build a hotel or motel on the parcel’s north end.The $1.3 million purchase will prevent residential development in MacDill’s clear zone and accident potential zone, but the state was only able to reach agreement to purchase the development rights for a hotel or motel on 11 acres in the airfield’s clear zone, reported the Tampa Bay Times.Still, it’s the best deal the state could get, said Bruce Grant, executive director of the Florida Defense Support Task Force.“It is not optimum and it doesn’t take care of the entire problem, but it does take care of part of the problem,” Grant said.A hotel or motel built on the parcel’s north end would be in the accident potential zone, making it incompatible with MacDill’s mission, Col. Patrick Miller, commander of the 6th Mission Support Group, told Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) and the Florida Cabinet before their Tuesday vote.State officials expressed frustration over the inability to fully protect the installation from development. “I have reticence that we were unable to negotiate away a future hotel at the end of a runway,” said Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.Separately, the Cabinet voted to spend $1.5 million to buy more than 600 acres near Whiting Field in Panama City, according to the story.last_img read more

BRTA officer caught redhanded while taking bribe

first_imgThe Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Thursday detained an officer of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) red-handed while taking bribe.An five-member ACC team, led by its director Nasim Anwar, arrested BRTA mechanic Suman Kumar Saha from BRTA’s Narsingdi office around 11:00am, ACC public relations officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told UNB. Earlier, Suman Saha had demanded Tk 25,000 as bribe from Yasir Arafat, a driving license seeker, alluring that if he gives the money, Suman will give him a BRTA driving license without any test. Later, Yasir lodged a complaint with the Commission in this regard, reports UNB.

Trump Narrows Supreme Court Shortlist To 3 — With 2 On The

first_imgCarolyn Kaster/APPresident Trump boards Air Force One, Thursday, en route to Montana.President Trump has narrowed his list of Supreme Court candidates to three, according to two sources close to the process.The three are judges Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge with Kavanaugh and Barrett as the top two at this moment.It’s important to maintain that caveat, because President Trump has not made a final decision, and it could change.Trump could decide (decide not announce) sooner rather than later, as early as tomorrow, though the official announcement is still slated for Monday.Judge Thomas Hardiman, the runner-up to Justice Neil Gorsuch, is still in the mix, though seen as fourth on the list.Whoever is picked is likely to be more conservative than the man they’d be replacing — Justice Anthony Kennedy. Kennedy was often a swing vote on the court, sometimes siding with the court’s conservatives and, at others, with the court’s liberals.For the first time in his career, though, this term he sided exclusively with the court’s conservatives.So who are the candidates who could replace Kennedy? Here are some snapshots:Brett Kavanaugh, D.C. Circuit U.S. Court of AppealsKavanaugh, 53, is a former Kennedy clerk and a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, which is commonly referred to as the second-most powerful court in the country.He’s a connected Washington insider with roots in politics in the George W. Bush White House. He’s written some 300 opinions for the D.C. Circuit in 12 years — and he’s only 53, which means he will likely serve on the high court, if confirmed, for a very long time.Some conservatives, though, question his bona fides, and he’s controversial with Democrats because of his role investigating former President Bill Clinton as part of the Starr investigation. Some conservatives have been lobbying against him, worrying that his upbringing in the suburbs of Washington could mean he’s the kind of justice who has disappointed conservatives before.These conservatives, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, believe he is not sufficiently conservative and disagree with portions of opinions he’s written relating to abortion and Obamacare.— Domenico MontanaroAmy Coney Barrett, 7th Circuit Court of Appeals Barrett, 46, clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. She’s only been a federal judge for about a year. Before that, she was a law professor at the University of Notre Dame.During her confirmation hearing for the 7th Circuit, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., questioned Barrett about whether her Catholic faith might color her work on the bench. “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern,” Feinstein said of Barrett. The senator’s questions drew a rebuke from Catholic leaders.She was confirmed 55 to 43 by the Senate, and three Democrats voted for her — Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Tim Kaine of Virginia and Joe Donnelly of Indiana.Her age, the youngest of those in final consideration, is seen as both a strength and a weakness. She could serve on the court a long time, but she does not have a lengthy record of opinions. She has lots of scholarly writing, however. Notably, she wrote a paper for the Texas Law Review in 2013 on the role of precedent in constitutional interpretation. She said existing precedent should not be overturned lightly, but she said it’s not “out of bounds”:“Our legal culture does not, and never has, treated the reversal of precedent as out-of-bounds. Instead, it treats departing from precedent as a permissible move, albeit one that should be made only for good reason.”— Scott HorsleyCopyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit Sharelast_img read more

As part of the Industry Centre at TIFF, destinations will promote themselves to producers, directors, and media with exhibition style booths.

Minister apologises for police drill that frightened kids

first_imgJustice Minister Ionas Nicolaou apologised on Sunday for the distress caused by the Limassol police anti-terror exercise at a sports centre in Polemidia at which some 50 children were present.Neither Nicolaou nor police chief, Zacharias Chrysostomou were happy learning about the drill at the Spyros Kyprianou sports centre from social media and disgruntled citizens who demanded the minister’s resignation. The drill frightened the around 50 children and other people present, who had not been informed about it. Chrysostomou ordered an investigation.Speaking at an event in Limassol on Sunday, Nicolaou said that “unfortunately, the necessary arrangements had not been made to avoid the upset caused by mainly terrorising parents and children”. Nicolaou apologised on behalf of the state.The government had set the foundations for a new era of rule of law and respect for human rights, which had to be respected by the Republic’s security forces, Nicolaou said.“For this reason, incidents like that of last Thursday, even if it was an isolated incident, can no longer be tolerated,” Nicolaou said.He said that nobody could allow such an incident go unnoticed, especially as it terrified children and their parents that were at the sports centre during the drill.“These drills are necessary but the proper measures and arrangements should be made, through better coordination among the (police) leadership,”he said.The drill dealt with a hostage situation.Athlete Irodotos Giorgallas who was at the sports centre at the time, said that adults had rushed to protect the children present when the drill began because they thought it was an actual hostage situation.“We lost ten years of our lives,” Giorgallas posted on his Facebook profile. He called on Nicolaou and those responsible to resign.“How can a drill take place without first informing anyone and spreading rumours that there were armed men with hostages?” he asked.The police chief also apologised for the unnecessary upset caused. He was not informed about the drill and only found out about it from social media. You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
