What a Fashion Editor (Who Lives in the South) Is Buying for Summer

Given that the closest fashion capital to where I live is 500 miles away, I get that the South isn’t the most obvious place for a fashion editor to live, but it makes more sense for me than it appears. Long story short, I’m originally from Louisiana, but after moving away for college, I eventually ended up in NYC and then Los Angeles, where I started working at Who What Wear. A couple of years ago, we had to move to Raleigh, North Carolina, for my now husband’s job, and there you have it. I’m a fashion editor who lives in the South, working remotely as a Who What Wear editor.

If you’ve ever been to the South in the summer, you’ve probably noticed that it’s hot and humid, and people dress accordingly. Truth be told, I’m much more influenced by my years spent living in Los Angeles than the South’s aesthetic, but I have had to adjust my wardrobe for my new lifestyle and climate. And since the temperatures are rising (as in 95 degrees here this weekend), and summer shopping season is in full swing, I’m sharing my summer shopping list below. 

A tie-dye tee just feels right in the heat. Available in sizes XS to L.
These Zara sandals are super simple, and that’s what I love about them. Available in sizes 5 to 11.
This is the top I’m wearing in the above photo, FYI. Available in sizes XS to XL.
I’m trading my black leggings for this cool beige pair this summer.  Available in sizes XS to XXL.
I can never resist a good Staud bag.
Yes, I also bought the swimsuit to match.
I’m not really a skirt person, but I’m a this skirt person.  Available in sizes XXS to XL.
You’ll find me wearing this over bikinis and white T-shirts. Available in sizes XXS to XXL.
I’ve been wearing these with every color under the rainbow.
I finally found the perfect white jeans. Available in sizes 23 to 32.
I predict this will make me feel like I’m on vacation at all times. Available in sizes S to M.
Summer pretty much requires a fun new pair of sunglasses.
I suddenly want all of my shirts to have summery motifs printed on them. Available in sizes XS to XL.
Patiently waiting for this flattering waitlisted bikini to arrive in stock. Available in sizes XS to XL. Shop the bottoms here.
I’ve been wearing this breezy blouse with denim shorts and over swimsuits. Available in sizes XS to XXL.
I personally think these are even better than the brand’s It bags. Available in sizes 35 to 42.
Cute little tops like this are a summer staple. Available in sizes XS to L.
These classic Everlane shorts are quickly selling out in every color. Available in sizes 00 to 16.
I’m not sure that cuter rompers exist. Available in sizes 0 to 3.
I love a fancy pool slide. Available in sizes 35 to 41.
I have a habit of buying a new Christy Dawn dress every summer. My eye is currently on this one. Available in sizes XS to XL.

Wish me luck with the 100% humidity to come…

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, South Africa’s Revolutionary Anti-Apartheid Activist Dies

Nomzamo Winifred Zanyiwe Madikizela-Mandela, a stalwart in South Africa’s fight against apartheid passed away at a hospital in Johannesburg on April 2. She was 81.

Born the fourth of eight children in the Eastern Cape of South Africa in 1936, Winnie Mandela, as she is commonly known, moved to Johannesburg to study social work despite apartheid’s restriction on educating of blacks at the time.

She met lawyer and anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela while standing at a bus stop in Soweto in 1957. The two got married a year later and have two children together. The marriage, however, would be short-lived as Mandela was arrested in 1963 and sentenced to life in prison for treason. He would not be released until 27 years later in 1990.


A CHAMPION FOR EQUALITY AND FREEDOM

Throughout Mandela’s time in prison, Winnie, who was fiercely independent and politically active with the African National Congress, emerged as a leading opponent of the apartheid government of South Africa. She organized rallies, local clinics, and campaigned for equal rights and promoted ANC as a pillar of opposition against the South African apartheid regime. She was regularly harassed, tortured, and kept under surveillance by police.

“I will die a freedom fighter to save this revolution which is so dear to me,” Winnie was quoted as South Africa was transitioning to democracy in 1994. She said the happiest period in her life was working underground as an ANC activist.

After South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994, she became a Member of Parliament and Deputy Minister of Arts, Culture, Science and Technology in what was the country’s first post-apartheid government. Winnie, however, was fired by Mandela for an unauthorized trip to Ghana and allegations of corruption.


CONTROVERSIES:

In 1986, Winnie, who was then regarded as the “mother of the nation” in Mandela’s absence, gave a speech, where she purportedly endorsed “necklacing,” and political killings by burning.

“With our boxes of matches and our necklaces we shall liberate this country,” she said.

Winnie was convicted for ordering the kidnapping and killing of 14-year-old activist James Moeketsi Seipei, also known as Stompie, along with three other people in 1989. She was acquitted of all wrongdoings but the kidnapping charges and her six-year jail sentence was commuted to a fine and a two-year suspended sentence on appeal.

In 1992, she would also be accused of ordering the murder of Dr. Abu-Baker Asvat, the health secretary of the anti-apartheid Azanian Peoples Organization, two weeks after he examined 14-year old Seipei at her home. She was said to have provided the firearms used in the killing and paid $ 8,000 for the hit. Mandela’s role was probed as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings in 1997, however, the probe would be later abandoned with claims that witnesses were being intimidated at the orders of Winnie. Jerry Richardson, then her head bodyguard, is serving a 19-year sentence for the murder.

One of The Few Black-Owned Wineries In South Africa Expands With New Restaurant

In 2015, we interviewed founder and CEO of Seven Sisters Wine Brand Vivian Kleynhans about her journey into the wine industry. As one of the few black-owned wineries based in Stellenbosch, South Africa, she successfully launched the brand in the United States and Africa—sealing the deal with well-known brands such as Walmart and American Airlines. Now, she’s made her way into the restaurant industry, with the launch of The Village Table.

Sevens Sisters Facebook page

Why did you decide to expand into the restaurant business?

The vision was always to expand and diversify into wine tourism.

Sevens Sisters Facebook page

What makes your restaurant appealing?

We serve food that my mother used to cook for us, such as our old-fashioned rooster bread. As children, we would come home from school and my mother was baking bread but it was not finished yet, so she would break off a piece of dough and quickly make us rooster bread, which was flavored with butter and apricot jam. We also serve a dish called Smoorsnoek; this is flaked fish made in a bredie.

Then we have our old-fashioned Paternoster fish and chips. Mussels in white wine source, and many more. This winter we will serve the Village Pot, potjie food (traditional South African cuisine) such as cabbage bredie, oxtail, tomato stew, and Irish stew. Additionally, the décor of the restaurant reflects elements of our hometown, Paternoster, with a volleyball court and beach sand for the little ones.

Throughout your entrepreneurial journey, you mentioned wanting to give up many times. What inspired you to persevere?

I suppose the passion for my vision to see a legacy stand for generations to come. Farming is not easy, agriculture is not easy, building a business from scratch without a business loan was tough, but I have a persevering spirit like my mom had. I learned a lot from her. We always find solutions to a challenge. No problem is too big to overcome. Finding strength in my faith. If today was not a good day, tomorrow might be better. I am always expectant for the new dawn as it will bring new tidings. Destiny demands diligence.

North and South Korea Didn’t March Together at the Paralympics Because They Couldn’t Agree on a Flag

North and South Korea marched together at the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, but a dispute over the unified flag drove them apart at the opening ceremony for the Paralympics on Friday.

The two nations decided to forgo the symbol of unity because of a tiny island chain that would have amounted to little more than a dot on the flag.

The show of division came on the same day that President Donald Trump announced that he agreed to meet face-to-face with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The two leaders have shared a strained relationship prior to the agreement, involving threats over nuclear capabilities and insults.

North Korea asked that the Dokdo Islands, which Japan now claims and calls Takeshima, be included on the flag, according to BBC. The unified flag, which was seen at the Winter Olympics, showed the Korean peninsula in blue against a white background. South Korea said putting the islands on the flag would violate the International Paralympics Committee’s recommendation not to politicize sports events.

North Korean officials said they do “not accept the fact that Dokdo cannot be marked due to political issues held in Korea,” Reuters reported.

The two Korean nations agreed to “respect each other’s stance and march separately” following the flag disagreement, BBC reported.

Despite the rift, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported that the North Koreans were cheered when they entered the arena at the Paralympics opening ceremony on Friday.

Kaiser Permanente Creates New Engaging Library Space at Underserved School in South Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES — Kaiser Permanente is pleased to announce the unveiling of a new Upper Elementary Library at Barrett Elementary School in South Los Angeles.

With a team of community members and school volunteers, Kaiser Permanente staff transformed an unused classroom at the elementary school into an engaging space for third- through fifth-grade students. Barrett Elementary School Principal Jera Turner hopes the library will cultivate a love of reading and spark students’ curiosity about the world around them.

The unveiling event will take place at the school on Friday, March 9, featuring remarks by Wanda Austin, former chief executive officer of Aerospace Corp., a leading architect for the nation’s space program. Austin is one of the “Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics” heroes honored on one of the walls of the library. The event will also include student presentations and a tour of the newly renovated space.

Murals grace the walls that were designed by Helene Cobb, artist and retired Los Angeles Unified School District teacher, whose work can be seen at several schools in the area. They represent California’s unique range of ecosystems, as well as outerspace, bringing nature indoors in a 360-degree experience. Teams turned desks into works of art, creating colorful energizing work surfaces. Additionally, drought-resistant native California plants were placed in the kindergarten play area to attract wildlife and nurture an appreciation of nature.

The Upper Elementary Library was made possible by a donation of more than 4,000 books by Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre. In collaboration with LAUSD, Jordan-Locke network of schools, Educational Theatre has committed to present all three of their elementary health education programs at each of the 16 Jordan-Locke schools over the next three years, with follow-up support provided by Watts Counseling and Learning Center.

“We are happy to have been invited to transform this space into a special place that encourages a love of reading and learning.” said Gerry Farrell, director, Southern California Educational Theatre for Kaiser Permanente. “We hope it will continue to inspire students at this school for many generations to come.”

For information about the event, contact Jennifer Lounibos, manager of booking and communications for Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre Program, at 213-841-6759.

Ivanka Trump Applauds for North and South Korean Athletes at Olympics Closing Ceremony

Ivanka Trump applauded for North and South Korean athletes while leading the U.S. delegation at Sunday’s closing ceremony for the Winter Olympics.

Trump stood and clapped when both North and South Korean athletes entered the stadium during the closing ceremony, according to CNN, unlike Vice President Mike Pence who remained seated when the two countries arrived during the opening ceremony.

Trump was seen alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his wife during the closing ceremony, but did not interact with hardline North Korean general Kim Yong Chol.

Kim on Sunday said North Korea was open to talks with the United States, the Associated Press reported. The White House did not immediately comment.

Sending Kim to lead North Korea’s Olympic delegation was a provocative move for North Korea during the 2018 Olympics, which South Korean President Moon Jae-in has called the “peace games.” Kim, who is the hermit state’s former intelligence chief, has been accused of masterminding two attacks on South Korea in 2010 — the torpedoing of the South Korean navy ship the Cheonan, which killed 46 sailors, and the shelling of Yeonpyeong Island, which killed two. American intelligence also believes he signed off on the 2015 hack of Sony Pictures.

North Korean envoys to the Games’ opening ceremony included Kim Yo Jong, the sister of leader Kim Jong Un. Kim Yo Jong went on to invite the South Korean president to the North Korean capital for talks between both countries.

Gen. Kim’s visit was agreed to in a bid to improve inter-Korean relations and pursue denuclearization, Seoul’s Ministry of Unification said on Thursday.

Trump landed in South Korea on Friday and took part in an evening banquet with Moon at a traditional Korean house, used only for heads-of-state visits. The banquet was a kosher menu that was made to fit Trump’s strict kosher diet. She spent the remainder of the weekend watching the Olympics.

White House officials had said on Thursday that Trump had no plans to interact with North Korean officials, engage in private negotiations or meet with any North Korean defectors.

On Friday, the Trump administration declared new sanctions against North Korea, the largest ever, in an attempt to put pressure on the rogue nation to scale back its nuclear weapons program. Trump emphasized U.S. “commitment to our maximum pressure campaign to ensure that the Korean Peninsula is denuclearized” at her dinner with President Moon Jae-in.

The U.S. delegation, led by Trump, included White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Republican Sen. James Risch of Idaho.

How This Woman Brought South African Flavor to New York Fashion Week

Nandi Madida is a South African actress, media personality, and fashion designer behind the clothing line Colour—a ready-to-wear label that offers Afrocentric inspired bespoke power suits for women. The aesthetic of the suits are inspired by the rainbow nation, a term describing South Africa and its multicultural diversity. Recently, Madida debuted her collection at New York Fashion Week. So in the midst of the NYFW frenzy, we caught up with Madida to talk about her how she included this year’s theme of ” a celebration of female power” into the design aesthetic.

What inspired your career in fashion design?

What inspired me to enter into the fashion world is the continent of Africa, there are amazing esthetics and very high quality in terms of textiles/fabrics, we have inspired the world with so many of our colors, fabrics, tribal prints, and our culture.

 Nandi Madida Fashion Week

As an African designer, why was it important for you to debut your line at NYFW?

New York is the fashion capital of the world, and what’s paramount for us is to make sure that we are on par with what the world is doing and having our hand on the pulse on what the fashion industry is doing from a global standpoint. An opportunity to show at NYFW is not one we would pass up; how could you? Showing at NYFW is a great way for you as a designer to see where you stand in the industry amongst your peers.

This year, the theme for your collection was a celebration of female power.  How did you showcase this theme through your designs? 

Now more than ever, especially in the US, with the “Me Too” movement and narrative, I wanted to include power suits in the collection—it’s about how the woman wears the suits, which is representative of them being independent, having a voice, taking on whatever they want to in this very patriarchal society that we live in.

You’re also a mom, wife, and media personality, what’s your best advice for making it work on a day-to-day basis? 

I wish that I had the formula to how I “do it all,” but I don’t. You have to take everything as it comes and live your life day by day and stay positive.

Lindsey Vonn Is Having Trouble Getting to South Korea for the Winter Olympics

Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn is on her way to South Korea for the Winter Olympics, but only after encountering a series of delays.

Vonn tweeted to her almost 1 million followers on Wednesday, writing that her Lufthansa plane sat on the runway for nearly two hours without taking off, and that it seemed like incorrect travel documents were to blame.

Two hours later she updated her Twitter feed, saying that the airline had passengers deplane while a new plane was being located.

Ever the prolific tweeter, Vonn also included a play-by-play of her experience on the delayed flight, telling her followers that she caught a man next to her discreetly trying to take a selfie with her when his camera flash accidentally gave him away.

About five hours after getting on the original plane, Vonn tweeted that she was finally on a new plane:

Vonn is trying to get to PyeongChang to participate in this year’s opening ceremony, which kicks off Feb. 9. The Olympics-bound athlete is the most accomplished female ski racer in history, with 78 World Cup wins under her belt.

She had to sit out the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, due to injury, so this will be her first Olympics in eight years. She said on social media that it will be especially emotional for her due to her grandfather’s passing, saying she would “make him proud.”

They are to join more than 250 boutiques at the retail center in late spring, and the McQueen boutique will be the only Orange County location for the brand (there is a store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles), while the Givenchy boutique is a Southern California exclusive (it’s one brand that’s missing on Rodeo Drive).
Family-run South Coast Plaza, which the late Henry Segerstrom built into one of the most profitable retail centers in the world, with annual sales topping $ 1 billion, is already home to Dior, Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Harry Winston, Hermès and The Webster. Segerstrom was many times the first to bring European brands such as Courreges to the States. SCP this year celebrated its 50th anniversary.

The McQueen boutique will be located on Level 2 of the center in the Nordstrom Wing, while the Givenchy boutique will be located on Level 2 near Jewel Court. The locations are significant because South Coast Plaza has more than 1 million feet of retail space, and customers often must park — or valet

North Korea Pulls Out of a Cultural Event With South Korea Ahead of the Winter Olympics

(SEOUL, South Korea) — North Korea has cancelled one of the key joint cooperation projects with South Korea planned for next month’s Winter Olympics, officials said, further proving the delicate nature of ties between the rivals split for seven decades.

North Korea on Monday night sent a message saying it won’t hold a joint cultural event at the North’s Diamond Mountain on Feb. 4 to mark the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, according to Seoul’s Unification Ministry.

The ministry cited North Korea as saying it has no other option but to cancel the project because of South Korean media reports that it says defamed its “sincere” measures for the Olympics. The North also accused South Korean media of picking a fight over an unspecified domestic festival in North Korea, according to the ministry statement.

The statement said South Korea considers the North’s decision “very regrettable.”

The North didn’t say which media reports were at issue. But some reports had criticized the North’s plan to stage a major event to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of its military on Feb. 8, just one day before the Olympics’ opening ceremony. South Korean officials have said the North plans a massive military parade on the anniversary.

It’s not clear how the latest development would affect other planned Olympics-related cooperation projects between the Koreas. They agreed to field a joint women’s hockey team and have their athletes parade together under a single flag during the Feb. 9 opening ceremony. A dozen North Korean hockey players arrived in North Korea last week to practice with the South Korean players.

North Korea has a history of last-minute cancellations and unexplained reversals, and some experts say it might have sought to gain concessions from the South. The visit earlier this month of a prominent band leader to inspect artistic venues in the South was delayed by North Korea but eventually took place.

The Koreas’ current reconciliation mood followed a year of heightened animosities over North Korea’s nuclear program. Many analysts say the North may want to use improved ties with South Korea to weaken U.S.-led pressure and sanctions on the country.

North Korea Aligning With South Korea for the Winter Olympics Is Already Causing Controversy

The agreement between North Korea and South Korea to march under one flag for the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony on Feb. 9 would seem to suggest that sports could help achieve the ultimate diplomatic breakthrough. After mounting tensions over North Korea’s nuclear escalation put South Korea and its allies on high alert, a unified women’s hockey team and North Korea’s 230-member cheering squad in PyeongChang sound downright Kumbaya.

Perhaps. But these overtures don’t come without potential consequences that could scuttle whatever opening they help create. Take North Korea’s cheerleaders. Known as the “army of beauties” in the south, according to the Korea Herald, they may not be welcomed with open arms by all. “N. Korea’s Army of Cheerleaders Needs (sic) To Stay at Home,” reads one headline in The Chosun Ilbo. “The North Korean cheerleading squad is filled with hand-picked beauties who, aside from their lipstick and smiles, are remembered here for going into hysterics when they saw a picture of their leader hanging from a tree as they were driven through the streets of South Korea,” writes the author, Sonu Jong.

The joint North and South Korea Olympic hockey team is already causing some controversy in the south. Reuters reported that more than 70% of South Koreans oppose forming a team with North Korea, according to a Jan. 11 survey released by the office of the South’s National Assembly Speaker and television network SBS. South Korean players, who just returned from a training camp in the United States, are reportedly “furious” about the prospect of teaming up with strangers. “I think there is damage to our players,” Sarah Murray, coach of the South Korean team, told reporters. “It’s hard because the players have earned their spots and they think they deserve to go to the Olympics. Then you have people being added later. It definitely affects our players.”

Read: A Brief History of Sports and Politics on the Korean Peninsula

The Winter Olympics hockey rosters for 2018 are set at 23 players, so a unified team could take spots away from South Korean players who thought they were going to PyeongChang. South Korean sports officials will reportedly ask Olympic organizers to increase the roster size to 30.

For the host nation, the Olympics are the payoff after years of preparation and a significant financial investment. Some experts worry that North Korea’s overtures could eclipse South Korea and lead to a backlash. “North Korea is kind of casting a shadow over the limelight,” says Scott Snyder, director of the Program on U.S.-Korea Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, and author of the just-released book South Korea at the Crossroads.

“On the one hand, I think the South Korean government is delighted to show the world that the Games are going to be safe,” Snyder says, noting that North Korea’s participation would seem to preclude any agitation, nuclear or otherwise, directed towards PyeongChang. “On the flip side, how far do you focus on drawing the North Koreans in?”

As for the U.S. and the broader goal of a diplomatic solution to North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, Snyder cautions against raising expectations. “So far this is a limited-time only inter-Korean engagement,” he says. “In a way the Olympics are a commercial break from the drama and tensions that have continued to build between the United States and North Korea.”

Winter Storm Scatters Sleet, Ice & Misery Around The South

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A brutal winter storm scattered a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain from normally balmy north Florida up the Southeast seaboard Wednesday, adding to the misery of a bitter cold snap as bridges iced over and cars spun out on slickened overpasses.

Only a few motorists ventured out in freezing rain that coated bridges and ramps with ice, forcing police to close roads and highways in the historic Georgia coastal city of Savannah. Some cars spun out into guardrails and ice from rain and freezing rain coated the windshields of cars. Police urged drivers to stay off the roads in a region little accustomed to the kind of winter woes common to the Northeast.

Ahead of the storm, dump trucks spread sand on bridges and major streets, and Savannah Mayor Eddie DeLoach warned residents to stay home. Many heeded the mayor’s warnings Wednesday, with few drivers out and schools, many businesses and even City Hall closed for the storm.

“The streets will be slick,” DeLoach had said in advising Southerners to batten down. “We could have some serious issues for folks who aren’t used to driving in this kind of weather.”

The coastal city that hasn’t seen measurable snowfall since February 2010 was expecting up to 2 inches (5 centimeters) of snow and sleet in the forecast Wednesday.

As the storm settled in, patrol cars with flashing lights blocked elevated ramps, closing off routes slickened by the storm. Porch steps leading up to many of Savannah’s elegant Southern homes were frozen over and at least one major causeway was already closed, along with several bridges.

The National Weather Service said the snow and freezing rain was expected to spread up the coast to the Carolinas, amid warnings that icy roads and low visibility could make driving treacherous. Accumulations of 3 to 5 inches (8 to 13 centimeters) were possible in eastern North Carolina.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency through Friday for 28 counties because of the frigid weather.
The weather service said up to an inch (2.5 centimeters) of snow could fall as far south as Tallahassee, Florida. In fact, snow began falling in Tallahassee early Wednesday — a rare occurrence in the north Florida city.

In central Florida, the state’s largest theme parks announced that water attractions such as Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, Universal Orlando’s Volcano Bay and SeaWorld’s Aquatica were closed Wednesday because of the cold snap.

In Brunswick, Georgia, on the Atlantic coast, law enforcement agencies reported freezing rain and ice on bridges early Wednesday. The icy conditions also were hampering early morning travel in Florida, as authorities were forced to shut a stretch of Interstate 10 east of Tallahassee.

In other parts of the U.S., dangerously cold temperatures have been blamed for at least a dozen deaths as well as freezing a water tower in Iowa and halting ferry service in New York.

The National Weather Service issued wind chill advisories and freeze warnings Tuesday covering a vast area from South Texas to Canada and from Montana through New England.

Indianapolis early Tuesday tied a record low of minus 12 degrees Fahrenheit (-24 Celsius) for Jan. 2 set in 1887, leading Indianapolis Public Schools to cancel classes. And the northwest Indiana city of Lafayette got down to minus 19 (-28 Celsius), shattering the previous record of minus 5 (-21 Celsius) for the date, set in 1979, the National Weather Service said. After residents there began complaining of a hum, Duke Energy said it was caused by extra power surging through utility lines to meet electricity demands.

“The temperatures are certainly extreme, but we’ve seen colder,” said Joseph Nield, a meteorologist in Indianapolis, noting that the all-time low temperature in Indiana was minus 36 (-38 Celsius) in 1994.

Nevertheless, the cold is nothing to trifle with, forecasters warned.

With Chicago-area wind chills expected between -35 and -20 degrees (-37 and -29 Celsius), forecasters warned of frost bite and hypothermia risks and urged residents to take precautions, including dressing in layers, wearing a hat and gloves, covering exposed skin and bringing pets indoors.

Atlanta hospitals were seeing a surge in emergency room visits for hypothermia and other ailments as temperatures plunge well below freezing. The temperature in Atlanta fell to 13 degrees (-11 Celsius) before dawn on Tuesday.

“We have a group of patients who are coming in off the street who are looking to escape the cold — we have dozens and dozens of those every day,” said Dr. Brooks Moore, associate medical director in the emergency department of Grady Health System, which operates Georgia’s largest hospital in Atlanta.

Warming shelters were opened across the South as freeze watches and warnings blanketed the region, including hard freeze warnings for much of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Plunging temperatures in Texas brought rare snow flurries as far south as Austin, and accidents racked up on icy roads across the state. In the central Texas city of Abilene, the local police chief said more than three dozen vehicle crashes were reported in 24 hours.

Making the most of the South’s bitter cold snap, the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro offered discounted tickets for those willing to brave the cold to see polar bears frolic in their kind of weather, along with Arctic foxes and elk. Nonetheless, African elephants, lions and gorillas were being sheltered out of public view because of the dangerously low temperatures.

Where Are the 2018 Winter Olympics? What to Know About PyeongChang, South Korea

While sports enthusiasts all around the world are gearing up for the 2018 Winter Olympics, officials in PyeongChang, South Korea—where the next Olympics is located—are putting the finishing touches on the venues that will host the XXIII Games.

Although this is the second time the Olympics have been held in South Korea — the 1988 Summer Games took place in Seoul — it’s the country’s first Winter Games and PyeongChang’s first international sporting event of this caliber. South Korea previously made unsuccessful bids on both the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics.

The 2018 Winter Olympics will consist of 102 events in 15 different sports over the course of 18 days. These events will take place at 13 venues spread across the counties of PyeongChang and Jeongseon, as well as the coastal city of Gangneung. The Opening and Closing ceremonies and most snow sports will be located in PyeongChang, with the Alpine Speed events in Jeongseon and ice sports in Gangneung. The Alpensia Resort in PyeongChang’s township of Daegwallyeong-myeon will be the Games’ central hub.

“With PyeongChang’s strategic position in Asia, and its access to a young and fast growing youth market, the 2018 Olympic Winter Games will no doubt expose new generations of potential athletes to the power of winter sport,” reads the official Olympics website.

Pronounced “pyuhng-chahng,” Pyeongchang is located in the Gangwon province of South Korea in the Taebaek Mountains. It sits just over 100 miles east from South Korea’s capital, Seoul, and around 50 miles from the border of North Korea. The closest international airport to Pyeongchang is in the nearby town of Yangyang. However, the Incheon International Airport in Seoul will function as the main airport for Olympic visitors. See the location of Pyeongchang on the map below.

The weather in Pyeongchang in February will likely be cold, with temperatures ranging from an average high of 33-35 degrees Fahrenheit (1-2 degrees Celsius) to an average low of 17 degrees Fahrenheit (-8 degrees Celsius), according to World Weather & Climate Information.

The first competitive events of the 2018 Winter Olympics will take place in PyeongChang on Thursday, Feb. 8, with the Opening Ceremony set for Friday, Feb. 9. The Games will conclude on Sunday, Feb. 25.

The amazing table mountain in South Africa

ADVERTISEMENT


South Africa is a country of heart stopping beauty and elegance, and it also has a hugely important history. The country has changed and evolved significantly over the years, but, the natural beauty has always remained. Always been a constant. There is such a grand cultural legacy in the country, and so many areas of it we look at with awe and wonder. One of the most beautiful parts of South Africa is Table Mountain.

This truly staggering flat-topped mountain is considered one of the most iconic and stunning natural landmarks in South Africa. Overlooking the glorious city of Cape Town, Table Mountain attracts thousands of tourists every year and plays a big role in the cultural heritage of South Africa as a nation. So, let’s find out more about this iconic mountain, and the role it plays in South Africa’s heritage. Here are some awesome facts about Table Mountain that we reckon you never knew!

It’s ancient

You could probably infer from the fact that it’s a mountain that the majestic mound has been around for quite some time. What you probably didn’t know is just how long it’s been around for. Well, all in all, Table Mountain is thought to be more than 250 million years old, making it older than the Alps, the Andes, and the Himalayas! In fact, it is one of the oldest mountains in the world, and we feel this helps add to its sense of grandeur to it. We can’t wait to explore further and find out more about this ancient wonder.

Amazing wildlife

South Africa has no shortage of amazing nature and wildlife as it is, but Table Mountain, in particular, has some stunning examples. There is loads of beautiful flora and fauna here, and a lot of the wildlife only exists on the slopes of the great mountain. For instance, there is a species of frog native to these slopes called the Table Mountain Ghost Frog. This little guy can only be found on an 8 km square area on the southern slopes of the mountain, and nowhere else in the world.

It’s still growing

It might surprise you to learn that Table Mountain is actually still growing! No, you didn’t hear that wrong! Hundreds of millions of years ago the Earth was the supercontinent Pangea, with Africa at the center, and then the continents broke off and drifted away. During this time, the shifting tectonic plates caused land masses to split and fold, but, Table Mountain remained immune due to being made from granite. The force was thrust downward instead, and this resulted in the mountain slowly rising over the years, and this is still continuing. In a few hundreds of millions of years, who knows how big it could be!

Table Mountain is one of the most impressive and incredible sights in the world, and a place you absolutely have to see as soon as you can. The mountain is a huge part of the DNA of South Africa and brings in a lot of tourism for the country. These are a few of the cool things you might not have known about Table Mountain and what an amazing structure it actually is.

There is a lot of beauty and history to uncover here, and you’re in for a treat. Make sure you head to some of the excellent Buddhist temples in the country. Buddhism has been prevalent in Korea since the fourth century and plays a huge role in the country’s DNA. Check out temples like Jogyesa and Jingwansa, and absorb some of the great culture and history of this place.

Loads of sky bars

For a panoramic view of the luminous and neon city below, you need to make sure you check out Le Style and enjoy the most perfect view imaginable.

Black-Owned Investment Company’s $700 Million Project Will Redevelop South Central, LA

Calling its approval a “milestone,” Capri Investment Group has the green light to proceed with plans to redevelop the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in South Central Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Planning Commission recently approved a proposal by the Chicago-based real estate investment firm to expand and revitalize the shopping mall, located in the neighborhood where the movie Training Day was filmed.

New Housing, Hotel, Retail Stores, and Restaurants

 

A master plan for the $ 700 million mixed-use project includes adding 961 condos and apartments, a new 400-room hotel, a 10-story office building, retail stores, and restaurants. Additionally, plans call for more than tripling the plaza’s size to over 3 million square feet.

Simultaneously, the project, viewed by some as a cornerstone of rejuvenating Crenshaw Boulevard, faces some opposition from residents and must get final approval from the Los Angeles City Council.

Project supporters contend that with online shopping increasing, malls potentially face closure if they don’t provide places where people can reside, work, and have fun. Backers contend that South Central is worthy of having such an upgraded commercial undertaking like other Los Angeles areas. The existing plaza is called “America’s oldest urban regional mall.”

Potential Gentrification, Dislocation Among Residents’ Concerns

 

Among the concerns residents express is that the project could lead to gentrification and dislocation, potentially hurting black residents from nearby areas with limited financial resources. They fear the redevelopment won’t provide affordable housing in an area already facing a housing crisis.

Luci Ibarra, a senior city planner with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning, stated by email that “City Planning recognizes the importance of preserving this iconic treasure in South LA.” She says her office considered the redevelopment of the site as a way to facilitate its continued presence in the community while addressing the opportunity to provide additional retail/restaurant services and replace surface parking with new housing near public transit.

Quintin E. Primo III, Capri’s chairman and CEO, No. 8 on the BE Asset Managers list with $ 3.40 billion in assets, told Black Enterprise that Capri has owned the urban mall since 2006 for institutional investors. Capri has sought Planning Commission approval for the entitlements for the past eight years, he says.

“While there still is a governmental and community process to be completed for this large, complex and socially impactful investment, we believe its redevelopment holds the potential to become the new City Center for South Los Angeles, a chronically underserved minority area,” Primo says.

“The Planning Commission approval represents a milestone for Capri and reaffirms our commitment to diversity and inclusion as we seek to improve each and every community in which we invest.”

Setting Aside New Homes for Lower-Income Earners

 

Capri has agreed with the city to ensure 10% of the apartments and condos are targeted for people that fall under set income guidelines, a greater percentage than initially suggested.

“We believe that increasing the affordable units to the suggested requirements of the planning commission will not overly impede the financial economics of the project,” Primo says.

Ibarra says the Los Angeles Department of City Planning supports the commission’s requirement to provide 10% of the residential units for very low and workforce housing levels. She added because there are no homes at the site, no one would be directly displaced due to the redevelopment project.

On a citywide level, Ibarra says city planning is well aware of the pressure on our existing housing stock all of its communities face. “Right now, the city is experiencing an unprecedented need to produce more housing to alleviate those pressures. Projects, such as the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, can lead to better housing choices for all,” she says.

Investing in an Area Not Targeted by Traditional Investors

 

Primo is asking Planning Commissioners to offer Capri “flexibility,” stressing that his firm still must raise $ 500 million to $ 700 million to complete the redevelopment project in “an area that has been grossly underinvested and underserved” by institutional investors and major retailers.”

All told, Primo expects the redevelopment will cost $ 700 million, marking the first time that amount of private commercial capital has been invested in South Los Angeles.

“We will create a project that will be worth well over $ 1 billion over the next five to seven years.” The redevelopment is expected to be completed in that time frame once work begins.

The master plan calls for adding more than 2 million square feet of new space, including the previously mentioned additions. Another amenity will be an open-air retail village with a grand entrance that will provide a stronger connection to the community.

Anchor Stores and All Other Retailers Will Continue to Operate

 

An existing 870,000 square-foot mall and a 15- theater Cineplex will stay open, but some free-standing buildings on the 43-acre site will be torn down.  Two anchor stores, Macy’s, and Sears, plus all other retailers at the mall will continue to operate.

The revamped center will be next to a new Metropolitan Transportation Authority station expected to open by 2019. Capri has agreed with planning commissioners that 25% of all jobs created during construction and operation of the expanded plaza will be offered to local residents.

Primo hopes to get city council approval on the project by late this year.

In praise of Tooting, south London

‘Captivating’ Tooting has been named one of the best neighbourhoods in the world, alongside exotic hotspots in Rio, Seoul and New York. Sound unlikely? Not if you live there, says the Guardian’s online Travel editor

Brookyln’s Sunset Park, Frelard in Seattle, Botofogo in Rio and … Tooting. The south London neighbourhood has joined the ranks of the world’s coolest city areas according to Lonely Planet. The guidebook publisher, which hailed “captivating” Tooting’s “multiculturalism and originality,” is known for including publicity-generating surprises in its lists of best destinations (earlier this year Leeds made it into the top 10 places to visit in Europe) but for residents of Tooting – me included – being ranked alongside other up-and-coming hotspots around the world merely confirms what we already knew: Tooting is a brilliant place to live and visit. And Lonely Planet is not the first big name to recognise the buzz in Tooting. In January this year the New York Times published its guide to the “The London of London’s Mayor”, a reference to Tooting resident and its former MP, Sadiq Khan.

South Korea Has A New President, But His Hot Bodyguard Is Stealing The Show

After a year-long scandal surrounding South Korea’s former president, the country finally swore in their new leader, Moon Jae-in, this week. Moon represents a turning point for the country whose government was embroiled in a high-profile corruption scandal.

And that’s all well and good, but there’s someone in the new president’s camp who is causing a different type of scandal.

His name is Choi Young-jae, according to the Korea Times, but you may know him on Twitter as the new South Korean president’s hot bodyguard.

Choi is said to be a part of President Moon’s “handsome brigade,” a term coined by Korean media and given to the group of apparently good-looking individuals who have been selected to be the “attractive public face of the new administration,” according to the Korea Times.

Even in the attractive presidential bunch, Choi’s smoldering good looks have captured the internet’s heart. 

Twitter user Elena Yip, who was one of the first people to publicly praise the distractingly handsome bodyguard, even imagined a romantic storyline for Choi that would fit right into passionate Korean drama TV.

The way he’s always photographed staring sternly into the crowd makes for the perfect inspiration for fan fiction.

After pictures of Choi went viral this week, South Korean blog AllKpop.com did the internet a favor and unleashed even more photos of the now-famous bodyguard.

No one seemed to mind the additional eye-candy, but, sadly, that’s all that Choi can ever be for most people. Korea’s Special Warfare Command told the Korea Times that Choi is “‘unfortunately’ married and has two daughters.”

Fans of Moon’s bodyguard will just have to find other ways to get the man’s attention.

In addition to protecting one of South Korea’s most prized assets, Choi is also doing the world another favor: He’s obliterating the stereotype that Asian men are weak and unattractive. 

Thank you, President Moon, for introducing one of your finest protectors to the internet. Our collective thirst thanks you.

Consumption, Media And Culture In South Africa: Perspectives On Freedom And The Public

Consumption, Media And Culture In South Africa: Perspectives On Freedom And The Public


This book is the first of its kind to bring together a collection of critical scholarly work on consumer culture in South Africa, exploring the cultural, political, economic, and social aspects of consumption in post-Apartheid society.From sushi and Japanese diplomacy to Queen Sophie''s writhing gown, from middle class Sowetan golfers to an indebted working class citizenry, from wedding websites to wedding nostalgia, from the liberation of consuming to the low wage labour of selling, the chapters in this book demonstrate a variety of themes, showing that to start with consumption, rather than ending with it, allows for new insights into long-standing areas of social research. By mapping, exploring and theorizing the diverse aspects of consumption and consumer culture, the volume collectively works towards a fresh set of empirically rooted conceptual commentaries on the politics, economics, and social dynamics of modern South Africa. This effort, in turn, can serve as a foundation for thinking less parochially about neoliberal power and consumer culture.On a global scale, studying consumption in South Africa matters because in some ways the country serves as a microcosm for global patterns of income inequality, race-based economic oppression, and hopes for the material betterment of life. By exploring what consumption means on the ''local'' scale in South Africa, the possibility arises to trace new global links and dissonances. This book was originally published as a special issue ofCritical Arts.

Youth and Higher Education in Africa. The Cases of Cameroon, South Africa, Eritrea and Zimbabwe

Youth and Higher Education in Africa. The Cases of Cameroon, South Africa, Eritrea and Zimbabwe


Student activism in Africa, at least since the early 1990s, has been preoccupied with popular struggles for democracy in both their respective countries and institutions of higher learning. The changing socio-economic and political conditions in many African countries, characterized by the decline in economic growth and the introduction of multi-party politics, among several other factors, have had different impact on students and student political organizations in African universities. This book recounts the responses of students to these changes in their attempt to negotiate better living and studying conditions. The four case studies contained in the book – Cameroon, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Eritrea – clearly reveal the very important aspects of the situation in which African students find themselves in many countries, and underscores the need to understand the character and development of higher education on the continent. Ministries of Higher Education, Vice Chancellors, Deans of Students, Student Unions and parents will find this book very useful in terms of understanding the tensions that often arise at institutions of higher learning and why solutions seem to be elusive.

Women and Gender in the New South: 1865 – 1945

Women and Gender in the New South: 1865 – 1945


In every age and in every culture there have been women who challenged the prevailing gender prescriptions and struck a nerve, resulting in waves of either change or repression. In Women and Gender in the New South, Elizabeth Hayes Turner draws on a multiplicity of sources—part of the great outpouring of works in the field of women’s history that has emerged in the past 40 years—to bring together in one volume the history of conservative, moderate, and even radical women’s groups. The book demonstrates how women and men from different racial and economic backgrounds not only weathered but also shaped the political and cultural landscape of the New South. Employing women''s history, gender analysis, and race and class studies, Women and Gender in the New South shapes this accumulated scholarship into an interpretative overlay that takes southern women and men from the ravages of one war to the opportunities of another.

Voltage Valet Electrical Adaptor for use in North, Central, and South America – “A” Plug

Voltage Valet Electrical Adaptor for use in North, Central, and South America – “A” Plug


PackingLight.com’s job is to outfit the traveler with all of the travel essentials one needs to venture anywhere. Our selection of Voltage Valet adaptors allow you to connect your appliance into the outlets of the world.Plug type “A” in for use in North, Central, and South America where outlets have our American-style configuration. The outlets and the voltage in the western part of the world is often the same as in the United States. There are exceptions however where outlets don’t have the large “hole” for our wider polorized prong on modern-day appliances. The Voltage Valet “A” plug adapts American polorized prongs to use in the other countries of the America’s specified above. The good news is that in most of North, Central, and South America the voltage is 110. Argentina, Brazil, and a few South American countries can have a mixture of 110 or 240 voltage in different establishments. Check our link below to see just what outlets and what voltage you should see in these specific countries in the world. If you have any questions please call us on our toll free number, 1-800-349-0525.We urge visitors to click to our Foreign Electrical page to get more in-depth information on when you need adaptors and converters for travel. Most often we find our customers do not need converters/transformers to bring down the 240 voltage found in foreign countries. The reason is they possess appliances that are already dual voltage with the capability to use anywhere without using converters. That is correct, people with most battery chargers and small travel appliances can check their appliance and discover their appliance has a rating specification that reads “100/240V”–indicating that the appliance is dual voltage and can work on the high 240 voltage abroad. So please check you chargers for MP3 players, digital cameras, razors, camcorders, cell phones, etc. and look for yourself. In addition, check your compact, folding hair dryers, travel curling irons and straighteners, travel steamers, irons, and coffee makers. If they’re built specifically for travel and/or purchased from PackingLight.com, we can save you the cost of buying a converter when you probably don’t need it!NOTE: Some countries use more than one type of outlet and you should carry the appropriate adaptor for each outlet listed. Again, adaptor plugs DO NOT convert electricity – they simply modify foreign outlets.To determine the adaptor plug you need see our link to Voltage Valet’s country list in the Electricity Guide section. http://www.voltagevalet.com/elec_guide.html

Øjenvidner 1914-1918 – sønderjyske soldaters beretninger: [Eyewitnesses 1914-1918 – South Jutland Soldiers’ Stories] (Unabridged)

Øjenvidner 1914-1918 – sønderjyske soldaters beretninger: [Eyewitnesses 1914-1918 – South Jutland Soldiers’ Stories] (Unabridged)

“Den 18. Juli 1918 begyndte Franskmændene Klokken fire om Morgenen med en voldsom Trommeild. Det varede ikke længe, førend vort Infanteri kom tilbage fra de forreste Linjer, uden Vaaben og halvt paaklædt. Vi fik omgående Ordre til at gøre Maskingeværet skudklart, og kort efter kom vi i Aktivitet. Skuddene rasede gennem Løbet, saa det næsten var gloende …”

Sådan skriver en af de op mod 30.000 sønderjyder, der deltog i 1. verdenskrig på tysk side. Sønderjylland havde været tysk siden nederlaget i 1864, og det betød, at de unge danske mænd i regionen blev indrulleret i kejserens hær. 6.000 af dem mistede livet for en sag, der ikke var deres.

Foreningen af dansksindede sønderjydske Krigsdeltagere 1914-18 (DSK) samlede i perioden 1941-1972 vidnesbyrd fra disse unge mænd. Det blev til mere end 600 både dramatiske og hjerteskærende historier fra fronten. De stærkeste af dem er udvalgt og samlet i denne bog med forord af Inge Adriansen.

UDDRAG FRA BOGEN
“Trommeild – I Cannyskoven 5. og 6. juni 1915 (Verdun). Det tordner og brager, det hyler, det hviner og hvisler, det piber og fløjter. Det er, som om alle helvedes ånder er sluppet løs, og forude glammer kanonerne med deres malmmunde som et hundekoppel, der har fået færten af ædelt vildt. Arrigt snerrer de små kalibrre, dumpe og uheldsvangre de store, og hundrede af projektiler med død og rædsel som ballast kløver luften. Med hoverende brag når de deres mål og slynger i kådhed sten og jord hushøjt til vejs, mens en regn af glohede sprængstykker farer til alle sider for at søge byttte.” – Søren P. Petersen, Rødding

Burt Waikiki Brings Hawaii Lifestyle To South Africa… Kind Of

What do you get when you combine viral online marketing with Hawaii’s laid back lifestyle? Apparently, Burt Waikiki.

Burt is a long-haired, speedo-clad, womanizing personal trainer from the Hawaii island of Kauai whose mission is to share his secret to balancing mind, body and soul by flirting with women and lifting weights made of coconuts. Oh, and apparently he saves puppies, which makes sense because why not?

bw

Also known as “The Guru of Goodness,” Burt is the star of a new viral marketing campaign launched by digital agency McCann and Kauai restaurants — a chain of Hawaii-inspired health food restaurants in South Africa.

The campaign’s purpose is to introduce the world to the “Kauai lifestyle.” This includes “healthy eating, being active and having time to chill,” according to Kauai’s marketing manager Leanne Jefferies.

“Even though the islands are far away, there is no excuse for us not to live by these principals in South Africa,” Jefferies told AdLip.com. “Our brand heritage is fun, informal and laid back. So we wanted to do a fun campaign.”

burtwaikiki

While the campaign’s efforts aim at promoting the island lifestyle, it’s clear that the videos are mostly for comedy rather than accuracy. Kauai’s residents do have a very strong voice when it comes to community health and the Aloha State actually does embrace yoga, but not everyone has a parachute to casually land on the beach or a “palace” on the sand with fake flower leis strewn about.

We’re also pretty sure that “scubaerobics” isn’t really a thing.

The original concept for Kauai restaurants began 17 years ago when the founders, originally from California, experienced life on the island of Kauai. Or, as they put it, “discovered the succulent fruits of this veritable Garden of Eden.”

What still remains unclear, however, is why the laid back, zen-seeking guru, Burt Waikiki, is named after one of Hawaii’s busiest and crowded cities, which isn’t even on the island of Kauai.
