Angelina Jolie detailed what she described as abusive behavior by ex-husband Brad Pitt in a court filing on Tuesday, escalating a legal battle over a French winery the former couple once shared and revealing new details about the dissolution of their marriage. The filing in a Los Angeles court alleges that Pitt sought to condition Jolie’s sale of her stake in the winery on a nondisclosure agreement that would have barred her from publicly discussing “Pitt’s physical and emotional abuse of her and their children.” Jolie’s filing describes an episode during a September 2016 private plane flight where Pitt allegedly “grabbed Jolie by the head and shook her” before “pushing her into the bathroom wall.”

There's disagreement about what hue the street lights currently are in parts of downtown Vancouver, but they're definitely not white.

Nancy and Sebastian Schlote have been puzzling about the new street light colour while out on walks, and came up with their own theories. "I thought they were experimenting with something, like energy savings," Na

New York City's office market rebounded in the third quarter from a year earlier, though leasing remained below levels seen before the rise of remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic, and higher interest rates and a strong dollar dampened new investment in the sector. Office leasing volume rose 27.6% to 9.23 million square feet, the strongest quarterly gain since the end of 2019 – a gangbuster year for leasing in New York, according to Colliers International Group Inc. "We're still hearing of large pending deals," said Frank Wallach, executive managing director of New York research at Colliers, adding that leases in the works for months typically close by year's end.
