Christian Bale visits Aurora victims
It was a dark day for the United States on Friday, July 20, when James Holmes shot and killed 12 and injured 58 during a midnight screening of ‘The Dark Knight Rises' at a theatre in Aurora, Colorado. But the Dark Knight himself, Christian Bale, tried to shine a little light when he visited a hospital where some of the moviegoers who were injured were being treated. The actor and his wife, Sibi Blazic, also paid their respects to those lost in the massacre at a makeshift memorial.
Canada didn't own the podium in London, but that didn't stop the country from celebrating its golden girl midway through the Summer Games. Rosie MacLennan, who served food to medal-winning athletes at Canada Olympic House in Vancouver two years early, was the toast of our home and native land thanks to her victory in women's trampoline.
Joe Fresh takes Manhattan
"It's the greatest Canadian export since Justin Bieber," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared at the Canadian retail darling's March 30th launch party of its flagship Fifth Avenue store. Lineups snaked around the block after New York magazine included the new Joe Fresh store in its "best of the city" issue. And according to the Globe and Mail, all of the Upper East Side's fashion elite have been spotted with Joe's signature Tang-colored shopping bags. The brain child of Joe Mimran, better known as the founder of Club Monaco, Joe Fresh has come a long way from the aisles of your local Loblaws grocery store. And the affordable apparel brand has no plans of stopping; it's recently inked a deal with J.C. Penny in a partnership that will see nearly 700 Joe Fresh shops in the iconic-American department store.
Backlash against sexist jeans
Is it a woman's job to do her husband or boyfriend's laundry? Hmmmm…no. Definitely no. Unfortunately, an extremely misguided jeans manufacturer somehow missed the entire women's lib movement and printed a washing label that had women around the world outraged. The label in question was discovered by British journalist Emma Barnett, who was picking up her boyfriend's jeans to wash them when she noticed something odd on the tag. It read "machine wash warm", but then directly below, in larger block letters, "OR — GIVE IT TO YOUR WOMAN, IT'S HER JOB." Barnett immediately took a photo of the label and tweeted it, which set off a Twitter firestorm of reactions that ranged from inquiries about where they could buy a pair to outrage at the sexist remark. But Barnett didn't reveal the manufacturer of the jeans. Nor did the warehouse that sold her the jeans, Madhouse. Madhouse apologized immediately and said they had no idea the label contained the offensive statement. But the damage was done, and there are more than a few ladies that have promised they will no longer be buying their apparel.
