Agora, depois da sua saída, Bibi revela à NOVA GENTE o quanto consegui emagrecer dentro d’ A Quinta. “Emagreci. Estou com 76!”, contou radiante.

Bernardina nunca foi excessivamente elegante, mas, desde que foi mãe, a ex-namorada de Tiago Ginga engordou mais e entrou n’A Quinta a pesar 82 .

Com a vida no rurality show da TVI que era bastante ativa, a ex-concorrente, que venceu o segundo lugar, está a conseguir começar a recuperar o seu peso anterior.

The Relevant Legal Principles
The court explained that it did not have jurisdiction to confer decision-making power on an arbitrator or another third party in the absence of consent. That said, the court advised that there is no impediment to incorporating into an order the requirement that disputes will arbitrated where parties do consent.

The Court’s Decision
In this case, the court noted that the order of Fitzpatrick J. was made on consent, and the parties were represented by experienced lawyers when it was negotiated. As a result, Fitzpatrick J. had the necessary jurisdiction to make the challenged order.

Similarly, as Gibson J.’s order flowed directly from the consent order of Fitzpatrick J., the court concluded that Gibson J. also had the necessary jurisdiction to the make the second order.

Furthermore, the court concluded that the challenged paragraph of the order of Fitzpatrick J. did not simply represent an unenforceable agreement to agree. The court stated:

In other contexts, it is clear that an enforceable agreement can be entered into where the parties agree to certain basic, fundamental, terms, and leave other incidental terms to be discussed and agreed later. In such circumstances, it has been held that such an agreement is enforceable.

The court noted that, in this case, the parties acted as if they had a binding agreement to arbitrate (at least until the proceedings before Gibson J. were concluded). Specifically, the parties agreed that parenting disputes would be dealt with by a parenting coordinator – and if necessary, arbitrated. The mechanical terms of setting out the details of the process were not essential.

The court also referred to a unanimous judgment from the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC), in which the SCC recognized a general organizing principle of good faith contractual performance – i.e., that there is a common law duty which applies to all contracts to act honestly in the performance of contractual obligations. The court noted that:

The Court [SCC] made it clear that these principles apply to all types of contractual relationships. I see no reason why they should not apply to family law contractual relationships, and indeed in some ways they perhaps should be applied even more strongly to family law contractual relationships.

As a result, given that the parties had entered into a clear agreement to arbitrate (as outlined above), the court concluded that the principle of good faith and honest contractual performance required that the parties take the necessary steps to make that agreement operative. That is, the court found that since the mother had been ordered by Gibson J. to execute the parenting coordinator agreement, she had an obligation to do so.

In the circumstances, the court adjourned the father’s motion for contempt.

General Posts Social Media


We know that Instagram doesn’t stop when we all leave the office at 5:30pm, and at the weekend, when we’re all making the most of our two days off, it’s especially alive.

Whilst there have been unofficial solutions like Schedugram, which we’ve made the most of, we’ve always been dumbfounded that there hasn’t been an official and truly reliable way for brands to schedule content outside of office hours.

All that changed this week when Instagram announced changes to its API. One of those changes allows third-party apps to schedule posts on business profiles. Hootsuite is the first tool to implement the change, and so now you’ll be able to schedule content right from the planner, as with Facebook and Twitter.

Whilst this API update is designed to make posting content at any time of day easier, it also has an added security benefit. You’ll no longer need to share Instagram login details amongst your team, and it’ll reduce the risk of posting on the wrong account (we’ve all heard tales of eager Social Media Managers posting content to a brand’s social profiles instead of their own). Content scheduling AND increased account security? What’s not to love!

Aside from posting content outside of office hours, a reliable scheduling tool could have great benefits for marketing campaigns. Undertaking a multi-image campaign? You’ll be able to post your pictures at the exact same time every day, or exactly 1 hour apart. Want to take advantage of an event or special occasion? You can schedule content ahead of time to coincide with other activities.

In our minds, the next logical step for the Instagram API will be to allow brands to schedule Stories – it does go against the ethos of the feature somewhat, but most brands will already have a plan for Stories as part of their wider Instagram strategy, and will already be creating content ahead of time. Branded Stories that could be scheduled would make for far more compelling content at the right time to hit the people who want to see it.

For now, if you’re using a third-party app like Hootsuite, schedule with (reliable) abandon, test optimal posting times and take advantage of out of hours engagement!
