  4. Before anyone judges me for the fact that I am only 16 years old, I'd like you guys to hear me out. I live in a suburban environment south of montreal, and I've gotten tired of letting others control the way I live my life. Ever since a young age, I have always wanted to be successful. "But how, and from what"? Those words are constantly in my head because I haven't even skimmed to opportunities in life that are there. All that I'm asking is that if anyone see's this, that you would give me some tips on how to invest in real estate, or any tips for starting off. I'm not totally sure how this would work out, but I would work for you in any way that I could if you could teach me you ways of making cash. I want to become financially independent and I can not think of a better time than now. I've been saving up my money, and I know for a fact I will become a millionaire and successful some point in life, but for when that will actually happen only the lord knows. Nothing can stop me, and from everything I've read, I need a mentor of some kind to help me through this to help me achieve greatness and become smarter with your knowledge. If you would like to help me out, or give me some valuable tips as I'm sure many of you guys have, I would greatly appreciate it. I know that many of you might be snickering at what only a 16 year old kid can do, but I have the hunger of getting knowledge and coin. thanks for taking the time to read my post I really appreciate it. ........................................................................................-------------------------------------------///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Bonjour à tous je m'appelle amine j'ai 16 ans et je suis tres intéraissé par le domaine des finances et l'immobilier et avec votre support je compte ameliorer mes competences dans ces domaine.Pour cette raison je suis à la recherche d'un mentor pour me coacher l'art de l'argent et de l'immobilier qui me fascinent tout simplement.je suis pres à fornire du temps et l'energie qu'il faut pour surmonter les obstacles qui m'attendent (c'est moi qui les attends en fait ).
  5. Shinan: Charles Khabouth extending club empire to Montreal Shinan Govani | Dec 14, 2012 2:04 PM ET More from Shinan Govani | @shinangovani Peter J. Thompson / National Post Peter J. Thompson / National Post Charles Khabouth is extending his mighty entertainment empire to Montreal. Twitter Google+ LinkedIn Email Comments More Official: the sultan of Toronto nightlife is extending his tentacles once more — to Montreal. Charles Khabouth is at it again, it’s true, and this time the plan involves bringing a little bit of Bloor Street to La Belle Province. La Société Montreal – a fraternal twin sis of that La Société, in the 416 – is all set to open within the Lowes Hotel Vogue. March 2013, I”m told, is showtime. “This partnership is the first of its kind,” Khabouth confirms, underlining the news that his INK Entertainment and the Lowes Hotel & Resorts group are embarking on a “strategic partnership in the hotel hospitality industry in Canada.” No rest for the weary — or for Charles. Born in Morocco, but honed in Canada, his stockpile already includes time-tested clubs such as This is London and Kool Haus (and many more), new-old-again boites like the newly-opened Uniun, a touch-down in Niagara Falls called Dragonfly, and urbane collaborations like Weslodge, a designer-saloon on Toronto’s King Street, and the even newer Spanish-centric Patria, next door. His La Société — when it opened during the summer of 2011, right in the middle of the so-called “Mink Mile,” next to Cartier and in front of Gucci — represented a kind of new-school resurgence for Bloor Street, and also a personal mile-stone for its impresario. Moola had obviously been spent on the place, with some even going as far as to compare the high-style brasserie to La Coupole, that catwalk of a place in Paris. Others, like myself, saw a genetic strain owing to Keith McNally, in New York City, and to his famously nostalgic places such as Balthazar. At the time, Khabouth said that La Société actually owed its inspiration to the bistros and brasseries of his native Beirut, and was modelled after one particular place in Paris: La Fontaine de Mars, in the 7eme. Predictably, the place was flooded by curiosity-seekers from the day it was opened, attracting boldface that ranged from … well … Deepak Chopra to Liza Minelli! Spotted at its curving booths, and beyond, has been a bounty of inevitable Toronto notables: from uber-barrister Eddie Greenspan to hotel mogul Isadore Sharpe to society diva Melanie Munk. And though things have surely cooled since its most nascent days – the hot spot narrative turned, predictably, to newer arrivals in town, such as Momofuku and Soho House – it continues to enjoy a steady clientele. And it’s still not surprising to see a holy-moly icon in there – i.e. Gary Oldman! The actor was spotted just earlier this week, mid-day, at La Société, his attention turned to an open-faced omelette. Peter J. Thompson/National Post Peter J. Thompson/National PostLa Societe co-owner Danny Soberano. Can Khabouth pull off his magic in Montreal? One thing is for certain: this is a bold and interesting move in terms, hospitality-wise. For a variety of reasons — the sheer size of the country, lack of imagination — there isn’t a lot of resto cross-pollination between cites in Canada. When there is brand-appropriation, it tends to happens on the north-south axis — spots such as the aforementioned Momofuku, or Cafe Boulud, being transplanted here. Another thing we do know: Khabouth will recreate the magic of the jaw-dropping stain-glass ceiling that is a hallmark of the place in the original restaurant, in Toronto. The newLa Société, in the Hotel Vogue, will be draped with the same.

  8. (Courtesy of the Financial Post) RBC is pulling out, yet BMO and TD are expanding. Lets see what happens.
  9. Mort Zuckerman Who: Real estate developer Mortimer B. Zuckerman is the chairman of Boston Properties, one of the largest real estate developers in the United States, and the owner of U.S. News & World Report and the New York Daily News. Backstory: The son of a Montreal tobacco and candy wholesaler who passed away when Zuckerman was 17, the future real estate mogul headed off to college at McGill at age 16, then moved to the U.S. in the late '50s to attend business school at Wharton and law school at Harvard. After briefly enrolling in a PhD program, he turned to real estate, taking a job at a Boston-based development firm called Cabot, Cabot & Forbes at a starting salary $8,750. Zuckerman soon became one of the firm's young stars; he proved himself to be a pretty brash operator a few years later when he struck out on his own and teamed up with Ed Linde to form Boston Properties: Zuckerman immediately filed suit against his former employer over his ownership interest in a property he developed and ended up collecting a $5 million, which he used to make some of his first real estate deals. In the early '70s, Zuckerman and Linde began developing office buildings on the outskirts of Boston; they later moved into Boston proper and expanded to other cities during the '80s. By the middle part of the decade, Boston Properties had assembled 50 properties in its portfolio, 10 million square feet of real estate in Washington, Boston, New York, and San Francisco. It was during the company's growth spurt that Zuckerman started making his first investments in media, acquiring a small local newspaper chain in New England in the mid-'70s, The Atlantic in 1980, and U.S. News & World Report four years later. He purchased the Daily News in 1992. Of note: Zuckerman continues to serve as chairman of Boston Properties, and today the publicly-traded real-estate investment trust controls more than 100 commercial properties across the country. In New York, Boston Property's portfolio includes 599 Lexington (where Zuckerman's own 18th floor office is located) and 7 Times Square, which was built in 2004. But while there's little question Zuckerman has been enormously successful in the real estate game, his media track record is mixed. The Daily News squeezes out a small profit, but its battle with the Post has been bloody and painful, and U.S. News has been losing money for years and never managed to close the gap with larger rivals like Time and Newsweek. Zuckerman did extraordinarily well with his purchase of Fast Company—he unloaded it at the height of the dotcom boom for $350 million—but other media forays haven't panned out. In 2003, Zuckerman put in a bid for New York, ultimately losing out to Bruce Wasserstein; his investment in Radar lost him a good sum of money; and more recently, his effort to purchase Newsday never came to fruition when Cablevision's Jim Dolan snagged it instead. Keeping score: Zuckerman is worth $2.8 billion according to Forbes. On the job: Zuckerman isn't the sort of developer who spends his days on construction sites wearing a hard hat. Owning media outlets generates the sort of political and social currency that gives him entrée to the Washington political establishment and lands him an occasional seat on Sunday morning political talk shows. And he actively exercises his political influence as the "editor-in-chief" of U.S. News and owner of the News. While he isn't exactly sitting at his desk proofreading copy, he has a hand in the editorial direction of the magazine, which, most recently, he's used to take a series of (often cheap) shots at President Obama. Grudge: With the Daily News and the Post at each other's throats, Zuckerman has been a bitter rival of Rupert Murdoch for years. The Daily News questions the Post's circulation numbers. The Post chides "the Daily Snooze" for every misspelling and factual error. The News refers to Page Six as "Page Fix." The Post questions the methodology used to generate U.S. News's college rankings. And on and on. (The one thing they don't do is go after each other personally. Several years ago, PR guru Howard Rubenstein negotiated a pact between the two moguls to keep their private lives out of their respective papers.) He also isn't a fan of Bernie Madoff. After the Ponzi schemer was busted in 2009, Zuckerman revealed his personal foundation lost $25 million that had been entrusted to Madoff. Pet causes: Zuckerman gives to a variety of medical causes and Jewish charitable groups. In 2006, he announced his largest gift yet when he handed a $100 million check to Memorial Sloan-Kettering. His connection to the institution is personal: His daughter, Abigail, suffered from a childhood cancer that was treated at MSK. Personal: A notorious bachelor—the Washington Post once described him as having "dated more women than Italy has had governments"—Zuckerman's been connected to Nora Ephron, Gloria Steinem, Arianna Huffington, Diane von Furstenberg, Patricia Duff, and Marisa Berenson. In 1996, he tied the knot with art curator Marla Prather. (Justice Stephen Breyer officiated.) In 1997, they had a daughter, Abigail, before separating in 2000 and divorcing in 2001. In December of 2008, Zuckerman had a second daughter named Renee Esther. The identity of the mother, though, was not announced. It's believed the child was conceived via a surrogate. Habitat: Zuckerman resides in a triplex penthouse apartment at 950 Fifth Avenue decorated with paintings by Picasso, Rothko, and Matisse and sculptures by Frank Stella. (His neighbor back in the day was disgraced Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski.) Zuckerman also has a four-acre spread on Lily Pond Lane in East Hampton and a home in Aspen. Zuckerman has a helicopter to ferry him to the Hamptons. For longer trips, he relies on a $60 million, 18-seat Gulfstream G550 or a $35 million Falcon 900 that seats 14 people. True story: A film director pal, Irwin Winkler, cast him in the 1999 film, At First Sight. The role? Billionaire mogul Zuckerman played a homeless man. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vital Stats Full Name: Mortimer Benjamin Zuckerman Date of Birth: 06/04/1937 Place of Birth: High School: Undergrad: McGill University Graduate: McGill University Law School, Wharton, Harvard Law School Residence(s): Upper East Side, Aspen, CO East Hampton, NY Filed Under: Business, Media, Real Estate http://gawker.com/5646808/
  10. In the June-July issue there is an article on Michel Dallaire Its quite interesting to see all the stuff he has designed over the 44 years he has been in business for himself. If you do not know who he is... he designed the Bixi bikes and some of the benches in the city. Also notably the 1967 Olympic Torch. I will try and post the 11 page article, later on during the week.
  11. I will post pics when I get more of them. Leaving in about 30 hours for almost 3 weeks Only reason I have this thread open so I have some sort of foundation.
  12. Close Up on [FURNI] VBS.tv did a small video interview on Mike Giles of Furni. He does a lot of wood work. I had a chance to work at Furni for a day and use the laser cutter. Seeing he is good friends with the person I am doing my internship with. Blog So if your in the mood, buy one of their clocks for yourself or a present for someone Please check him out. INSIDER INFO: He is also working on Hi-Fi headphones. It is a concept form at the moment. I will tell you more or post pictures when I see the finish product. All I can say, the idea will be similar to GRADO's GS1000i but far less expensive.
  13. The Quebec government sends something via Xpress Post to my old address, even though they have my new address. They sent out a letter March 16th and only got it today. I moved over a year ago, so they know the new address. I have no idea who to blame for this incompetence. The Quebec government for not checking with the change of address or Canada post for not rerouting the letter (seeing they have the new address also). :mad: Someone at Revenu Quebec and Canada Post is getting an earful tomorrow for this grade A fuck up!

    Garbage Cans

    Hi! I hope this post is not miscategorized. Since I moved to Montreal I have been looking forward to seen these old garbage cans replaced: They are too small, break easily, are always leaking, and most of them have lots of garbage under them which looks really bad (I don't even know how it gets there though I have a few theories). Anyway, in 2007 I found out that Michel Dallaire (the BIXI industrial designer) was to design new benches and garbage cans for downtown: http://www.ledevoir.com/2007/12/17/168881.html In 2008, renderings of the new designs appeared on his website: http://www.dallairedesign.com/flash/index.html And after that nothing happened. Is there any way to know what happened to this? Are they ever going to be replaced?
  16. First Canadian Place officer tower to receive a facelift 680News staff Toronto | Thursday, September 24th, 2009 7:56 am Toronto - First Canadian Place, Canada's tallest office tower, will be receiving a $100-million makeover. There are currently 45,000 slabs of white marble on the 72-storey home for the Bank of Montreal. But, Brookfield Properties, the building's owner, is going to replace the marble with 7,800 panels of white glass. The National Post reported the property, which opened in 1975, has already seen a refurbishment of some of the marble slabs, but the look has deteriorated. Tom Farley, president and CEO of Brookfield's Canadian commercial operations, told the paper that when the company bought the property in 2005, they knew it was a fixer-upper. If the original builder had used thicker marble, it would have lasted 100 years. Brookfield said it will also renovate the lobby of the tower. The National Post called the renovation another positive signal for the downtown business core, with the recent opening of the Bay-Adelaide Centre and two other office towers opening before the end of the year. ----- Hyrdo-Quebec are you listening??? Please renovate your POS.

  19. FINANCIAL POST http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/fpposted/archive/2007/11/15/the-rebirth-of-downtown-montreal.aspx Posted: November 15, 2007, 2:46 AM by DrewHasselback Montreal Downtown Montreal is going through a rapid revitalization that has seen the rise of condo towers, university buildings, hotels -- and major international retailers. Nowhere is this more apparent than the corner of Peel and Ste-Catherine, one of the city's busiest spots. "The corner has always had a certain amount of vibrancy," says Sam Sheraton, senior administrator for Montreal's Drazin family, which owns property near Peel and Ste-Catherine. "Now, it has become the central core of downtown Montreal." One-level retailers who once occupied 1,500-to 2,000-square-foot spaces and generated sales of about $400 to $600 per square foot are making way for bigger, multi-level stores that bring in twice as much. A large Roots store on the northeast corner of Peel and Ste-Catherine recently downsized and hot U.S. retailer American Eagle Outfitters moved in. On the northwest corner, a Guess store opens next month. Next door on Ste-Catherine is the year-old flagship store of Montreal's own Garage chain, one of Canada's top fashion retailers. And on the southwest side, several retailers, including a Rogers phone store and SAQ liquor outlet, are being relocated by the owner, to make way for a multilevel H& M store, industry sources say. (On the remaining southeast corner is an HMV store, in the same building as the Montreal Gazette and National Post bureau). Rumour has it Pottery Barn is looking for a location nearby. A few blocks to the west on Ste-Catherine, next to Ogilvy's, Apple is taking a space formerly occupied by a menswear store. Sean Silcoff

  22. Where do you locate on the Political Compass? After taking the Test, if you can either post the coordinates and/or the graph with the dot on it. Economic Left/Right: 7.00 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 4.62 I'm fairly right economically, however on social issues I tend to be more centrist (however in the authoritarian quadrant still). In general, I'm ideologically similar to Harper and McCain. Bush if a little further right than I am and more authoritarian. Obama is further left and a little less authoritarian.
