The Raptors can throw buckets of money at Marc Gasol for one more year. But he might have a different end game in mind
The Raptors can sign the free-agent big man to a one-year deal at any amount without regard for the salary cap, and it won’t eat into any savings for the 2021 free-agent period. Other NBA teams may offer a second or third year, however, and even playing out his career in his native Spain is a possibility.

9 Skincare Products You Need For Winter
Fall has just crept up on us but it’s not too early to consider how the cold weather impacts our skin and to adjust our skincare routine accordingly.In order to protect against the cold, especially if it’s dry weather, remember to incorporate some targeted products into your beauty arsenal, including lotions and serums designed to protect your delicate skin.The transition to fall and winter also presents an opportunity to renew, so exfoliators and peels are among our go-tos for a seasonal refresh, while nourishing cleansers ensures skin won’t dry out.Check out some of our favourite ways to transition your skincare routine as colder weather hits.Three Ships Radiant Grape Stem Cell + Squaline Day Cream We’re all about preventative skincare, especially during the cold months, and this day cream from Three Ships is one of our favourites to ensure skin stays nourished.This vegan cream keeps skin hydrated and protected from UV damage with the help of plant-powered ingredients like prickly pear, argan oils and squalane, and anti-inflammatory grape stem cell extract.Alpyn Beauty PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer We adore the faint herbal undertones and delicate pink of this lightweight — but still super hydrating — moisturizer from Alpyn Beauty.Designed as an anti-aging hydrator, this plant-based blend is gentle enough to be applied morning and night (makeup wears effortlessly over it), while simultaneously encouraging skin’s natural collagen production.Stevie Fox Dope Pony Baby Face Serum What’s not to love about an iridescent-labeled, pink-hued serum named Dope Pony? We’re obsessed with this hyaluronic acid serum and consider it a daily go-to for our fall and winter skincare routine.We massage a drop or two into our skin in the morning and feel an instant effect, and we love it directly under makeup for a little extra glow up.Honest Beauty Cleanser This cruelty-free cleanser from Honest Beauty founder Jessica Alba is a must for everyday skincare, particularly as we move into fall.Soothing calendula and chamomile make this mixture ideal for skin impacted by seasonal changes while gentle enough to use morning and night.Graydon Face Foam We love the fresh cleanse we get from Graydon’s Face Foam, which is made with botanical actives including Blue Majik to nourish, cleanse and brighten skin. And even as we move into the winter months, we find it helps support a healthy glow.For extra oomph we pair it with the brand’s Berry Rich Probiotic Face + Eye Cream (which, FYI, is the cutest shade of blue), a luxuriously creamy blend that lends itself to a renewing facial massage with lasting effects.Okoko Cosmétiques Sublime Balm A good multi-purpose product is an essential component of one’s beauty regimen, and Okoko Cosmétiques Sublime Balm checks all the skincare boxes.Nourishing hydration from plant-derived oils and butters, combined with an intoxicating vanilla scent, protects skin effortlessly throughout the colder temperatures, whether we use it as a daytime moisturizer or eye balm, or even as a luxurious cleanser.Maison Jacynthe Exfopur exfoliator After months of sweat and sunscreen in the summer heat, the onset of fall is an ideal time to incorporate an at-home exfoliator into your skincare routine and Maison Jacynthe’s Exfopur is one of our faves.Formulated with refreshing peppermint as well as healing clay and volcanic rocks, this all-natural exfoliating cream brightens skin while toning, purifying and reducing fine lines.Sade Baron All Moi Multipurpose Balm When the weather cools down skin can dry out, especially if you live in drier climates, so prepare in advance with skincare products like this Multipurpose Balm from Sade Baron.Made with apricot kernel oil, cocoa butter and vitamins A, C and E to nourish and hydrate skin, we love it on our lips or anywhere else that needs some extra TLC.Calyx Smooth CBD Lotion Cold seasons can make skin inflamed and dry, but Calyx Smooth CBD Lotion is highly efficient at calming irritation, eczema and other troublesome skin conditions.Formulated with CBD and infused with sandalwood and lavender essential oils, this silky soft body cream has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and heal, and also works perfectly as a step in a post-workout massage. RELATED What Is Your Dry Skin Trying To Tell You Don't Fall For The Science-y Terms On Your Moisturizer Don't Use Fabric Softener On Your Mask And Other Pandemic Skincare Tips Black-Owned Green Fashion And Beauty Brands You Can Support Right Now Also on HuffPost Canada:

Premier John Horgan announces B.C. will hold provincial election on Oct. 24
VICTORIA — B.C. Premier John Horgan has met with Lt.-Gov. Janet Austin today, and says she granted his request to dissolve the legislature. Horgan called an 11 a.m. news conference following the meeting with the lieutenant-governor, and announced the province would soon go to the polls. B.C. has a fixed election date set for October 2021, but Horgan says to wait for 12 more months would be time wasted. The NDP and B.C. Liberals were tied with 41 seats each when the legislature was dissolved. The Greens held two seats, there were two Independents and one seat was vacant. But in recent weeks, Horgan has said the Green party is a different entity from the one he signed the agreement with after the departure of Andrew Weaver as leader. It appears Horgan is ready to run for re-election during the COVID-19 pandemic at a time when his government has received some praise for its handling of the health crisis. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson has been critical of the government’s response, saying last week that it has taken too long to roll out a $1.5 billion economic recovery plan. Other provinces unveiled their plans months ago, he said on Thursday. “This NDP plan is a huge disappointment simply because it is too little, too late,” he said. “They’re trying to stoke election fever with an economic plan.” Horgan described the plan as building on a foundation of previously announced provincial and federal commitments aimed at recharging the economy. “This recovery plan is just the start, the first step on a long road of recovery that we will take together,” he said in announcing details of the plan. “We’ll continue to invest wherever and whenever we need to, to keep our economy growing and keep people safe.” The Greens, meanwhile, announced Sonia Furstenau as their new leader a week ago when she dismissed the need for an election, arguing the agreement her party has with the NDP is working. “John Horgan needs to recognize that an unnecessary election right now is an entirely irresponsible thing to do,” she said at the time. Elections B.C. has been consulting counterparts in New Brunswick after that province successfully held an election last week during the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides procuring safety items, ensuring physical distancing protocols are followed has been part of the training for election officials, said spokesman Andrew Watson. Administrators in B.C. and around the country are also looking to expand voting by mail during the pandemic. That’s an option typically used by voters who will be away during an election and has been available in B.C. since 1988, Watson said. For candidates, elections without rallies or knocking on doors will mean different ways of campaigning during a pandemic. Hamish Telford, assistant professor of political science at the University of the Fraser Valley east of Vancouver, said last week that candidates would have to make a greater effort to expand their reach by phone and social media. Telford said that while voting at polling booths will be akin to the precautions taken when going grocery shopping, turnout may be low and few people may opt for mail-in ballots as COVID-19 cases rise in B.C. “A lot of people are preoccupied with more urgent matters — their health, their job, their kids’ schooling. And they are concerned and wary about going out in public,” he said. “We know that more older people tend to vote than younger people and I think older people are more concerned about COVID than younger people and that could keep older people away from the polls.”
