Black Friday deals are here, and while they can also be found from the comfort of your couch, there’s plenty in “stores” too…get it? Sleep Country Canada has several sales for Black Friday, including a buy-one-get-one-free deal for pillows. Plus, The Bay is offering up to 60% off items, including several big deals on bedding and mattresses. Crate&Barrel is selling its items for up to 60% off on Black Friday and 50% off in-stock furniture, including this sofa for $1,679, down from $2,099. Plus, we wouldn’t be able to do a full list of Black Friday deals without mentioning those on Amazon, for those keyboard shoppers specifically!
Short Circuit is “an experimental short film program at Disney Animation” that can be viewed on Disney+. My younger self wishes I had this to watch when I dropped out of dance classes because I was bigger then the other girls. pic.twitter.com/0sUu76MGuq — Kimberley Ronca (@kimberleyronca1) October 28, 2022Glad to see that the majority of comments about the Reflect Disney short are positive and encouraging. My younger self wishes I had this to watch when I dropped out of dance classes because I was bigger then the other girls. I watched “Reflect,” the new Disney short being touted for fat representation.1 month ago Daily Hive
The first coins featuring King Charles III are about to enter circulation in the UK, and it gives us a glimpse into what Canadian money could look like. The Royal Mint, the UK’s official maker of coins, announced on Friday that it has started production of 9.6 million circulating coins displaying the new monarch. Another small difference is that King Charles faces the opposite direction from the Queen on the coins we currently use (both in the UK and Canada). Back in September, the Royal Canadian Mint told Daily Hive that a new monarch doesn’t require a “wholesale replacement” of coins already in circulation. The Royal Canadian Mint has yet to reply to Daily Hive’s latest request for comment in light of the coin’s circulation in the UK.1 month ago Daily Hive

“Your monthly subscriptions, such as TV streaming subscriptions, app subscriptions, music subscriptions and cloud services, for example, can be sneaky,” said Paul. Keep a close eye on any trial offers, and set reminders to cancel before you’re charged or the pricing goes up.”Effects of rising interest ratesMost British Columbians are becoming more spend-conscious, but 60% are saying they already are feeling the effects of interest rate increases.

The 76ers lost both games Embiid missed, eventually falling 4-2 in the series as they were eliminated out of the playoffs. “It’s good, I mean, we’re both from Cameroon, representing Cameroon,” Siakam said at Wednesday’s shootaround of his relationship with Embiid. While things might be cool between Embiid and Siakam, Koloko knows it’s still likely to get a little chippy in the paint. “Oh man, it’s gonna mean a lot. So I’m really excited for tonight.”For Siakam, he’s hoping the next generation of Cameroonian children will be inspired to follow in their footsteps.1 month ago Daily Hive

These apps are playing larger roles in disseminating information and opinion, especially in the East and South Asian communities. Our changing demographics being (finally) represented on municipal councils across the province is just the first step.1 month ago Daily Hive
