Homme Plissé Issey Miyake Stages First Paris Artistic Presentation

ART ATTACK: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake staged its first artistic presentation in Paris, on Thursday night at the Centre Pompidou. Guests in attendance lined all four walls of a vast room there, which made up the “playground” that the designer had created along with choreographer Daniel Ezralow.
To wit, there was a line of rings and a dangling rope, plus a tightrope in place before the beginning of the performance, which featured gymnasts, dancers and models. It sprang to life after a bell was chimed solemnly and men sprinted across the space to begin dressing.
A group of them lined up sporting a selection of the streamlined pleated clothing that comes in a wide array of saturated colors, from the brand’s fall 2019 collection created by Miyake and his design studio, and demonstrated how pieces can be mixed and matched. Two guys sporting wider garb did an amazing balancing act on the slack rope.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake’s balancing act.

Men walked, danced and ran around the room, filling it with a swirl of lush hues and an exuberant, joyful vibe. A high point was when some swung from the rings in ethereal, mesmerizing synchronized movement.

WORKING TOGETHER: Lola & Leone has embarked on its first amenity partnership with the Royal Blues Hotel.
The year-old fragrance brand created by Olga Litvinenko is offering its signature fragrance at the boutique hotel located in Deerfield Beach, Fla.
“The collaboration is our first location in Florida and our first collaboration of this kind,” Litvinenko said. “The hotel is focused on art, food and well-being and that’s something that we emphasize as well.”
The signature scent, which is a blend of wood oils, rose, pear, bergamot and gardenia, will be available for testing in the hotel rooms and for purchase at the hotel’s boutique. The 3.3-oz. bottle retails for $ 195. The brand will also have its soy-based candle, which is infused with the signature scent, available for purchase for $ 72.

After meeting at a gala, Litvinenko teamed with hotel owner Edward Walson to combine their passions for philanthropy. A portion of the sales of the Lola & Leone products will be donated to a group of 10 charities, including the T.J. Martell Foundation, the Alzheimer’s Association and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, among others.
“We both have a similar interest in philanthropy,” Litvinenko said. “We wanted to see how we could work together

Change in the Old South: Gwinnett County Gets First Black Woman Democratic Party Chair

The South will rise again—but this time in a definite shade of blue rather than Confederate grey. At least that is the goal of newly-elected Democrats in Georgia. The midterm election was an exclamation point, underscoring a process of change that has been quietly underway for some time. Nationally, eyes are on Georgia, particularly Gwinnett County and the first black woman to chair the county’s Democratic party.

With a Bachelor of Political Science from Spelman College, Bianca Keaton has earned her spot at the political table. Upon graduation, she went to Washington, D.C., and served as an aide and adviser to U.S. Congressmen Robert Brady and Cedric Richmond for a combined six years. Keaton is well-versed in legislative policy, administration, and strategic planning. Her most recent political position before being voted in as Gwinnett County Democratic Chair has been assistant to Cobb County Commissioner Lisa Cupid where she served for nearly three years.

Keaton’s position is significant for a number of reasons. Gwinnett County has been a Republican stronghold for at least the last 30 years. It’s the second-most populous county in Georgia, and prior to 2016, had not voted for a Democrat since Jimmy Carter.

However, this all began to change in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won a majority of the county’s votes. Last year, two Democrats were elected to the County Commission and the county’s legislative delegation in the state capitol shifted from being majority Republican to majority Democratic.

Gwinnett County is located in the northeast quadrant of the greater Atlanta area. With population just shy of 1 million people, it is often hailed as one of the most diverse counties in the southeast.

The most common foreign languages in Gwinnett County are Spanish (144,073 speakers), Korean (19,938 speakers), and Vietnamese (15,614 speakers), compared to other places, Gwinnett has a relatively high number of Korean (19,938 speakers), Serbo-Croatian (3,767 speakers), and Gujarati (4,802 speakers). – DataUSA.com

However, this diversity was not reflected in the county’s political leadership — prior to 2018, the  Gwinnett County Commission was all white and all Republican. Keaton, at 35-years-old, is set to play a critical role as the county’s political shift.

Change is not a scary word to Keaton. Growing up in Chicago, she struggled against poverty and uncertainty on a daily basis. She once went to 10 different schools in one year. Now, she is on a path to move Gwinnett from red to completely blue by the time of the 2020 elections.

Some of the key issues she is focused on include:

  • Fair elections – It’s no secret Gwinnett County had issues on election night with their precincts and ballot access. These issues could have been avoided with better planning and oversight. Absentee Ballots were thrown out and not enough voting machines were made available for the high voter turnout. This is a priority to fix for Keaton.

 

  • Making room for new voices and creating an expanded Democratic footprint throughout Gwinnett – At one time, the Democratic Party in Gwinnett was all but defunct. Keaton and her executive team are taking the reins and moving things forward, especially for groups that have been historically marginalized in the county.

 

  • Modernized operations – Keaton says it’s time to bring party operations into the 21st century. She has a clear idea on how she wants to achieve this. It’s more than just building a new website she says–it’s about brand and messaging as well as policy and procedures. She embraces technology and wants to utilize it to streamline the functions and work of the party.

Thom Browne Attends First Ermenegildo Zegna Show

FAST FRIENDS: “He’s my new best friend, I love our friendship,” gushed Thom Browne of Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group. Although his own show is slated for Paris next week, the designer took the time to fly to Milan to show his support for Zegna, which took a majority stake in Thom Browne Inc. at the end last August. While Browne demurred from detailing any specific future plan for the brand, he said there will be “a lot more stores opening in the next couple of years.”
In a sign of Zegna’s pull in China, Hong Kong singer and actor William Chan Wai-ting attended the show, flanked by, among others, the brand’s longtime friend, actor Daniel Brühl; model Winnie Harlow, who snapped photos of the looks throughout the show, and American actor McCaul Lombardi, who fronted Zegna’s advertising campaign with Robert De Niro in 2017. Michele Norsa, vice chairman of Missoni, was also at the show, having joined the board of Zegna in 2017.

Homme Plissé Issey Miyake to Hold First Presentation in Paris

NEW PLEATS: Homme Plissé Issey Miyake, a men’s line from the Japanese designer, is holding its first presentation in Paris on Jan. 17.
Choreographed by Daniel Ezralow, the artistic presentation will take place at the Pompidou Center at 9 p.m., following the Issey Miyake show earlier in the day at 11 a.m. in the Palais de Tokyo. Ezralow choreographed a presentation for Homme Plissé Issey Miyake featuring the men’s gymnastics team of Aomori University in 2013. The Pompidou Center presentation will take place in same space as a recent exhibit on Japanese architect Tadao Ando, a large room with windows lining one side.
Homme Plissé Issey Miyake was established in 2013 as a masculine counterpart to Pleats Please, which was launched two decades prior. The clothing is meant to be light and comfortable, with uniform pleats to keep fabric from sticking too close to the skin.
Designed by Miyake and his teams, pieces to be featured in the presentation are part of the fall winter 2019 collection, with most of the items pleated after being cut and sewn. The line has been growing with an offer ranging from ath-leisure and casual style clothing to suits.
In another recent Paris performance, Issey Miyake opened the

Los Angeles Teachers Are Ready For First Strike In 30 Years

23822191

Creatas Images

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Teachers in Los Angeles, whose 640,000 students make it the nation’s second-largest school district, are ready to strike Thursday over a contract dispute that follows teacher walkouts in other states that emboldened organized labor after a critical defeat at the U.S. Supreme Court.

United Teachers Los Angeles said its 35,000 members would walk off the job for the first time in 30 years if a deal wasn’t reached on higher pay and smaller class sizes. The Los Angeles Unified School District says the union’s demands could bankrupt the school system, which is projecting a half-billion-dollar deficit this budget year and has billions obligated for pension payments and health coverage for retired teachers.

Negotiations are continuing, but little progress is evident. The two sides rejected Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s offer to broker a deal.

Thousands of teachers took to the streets of downtown Los Angeles last month to demand a new contract. They wore red shirts, banged drums and carried signs that read “Stand With LA Teachers!” as they marched.

They are hoping to build on the “Red4Ed” movement that began last year in West Virginia, where a strike resulted in a raise. It moved to Oklahoma, Kentucky, Arizona, Colorado and Washington state, spreading from conservative states with “right to work” laws that limit the ability to strike to the more liberal West Coast with strong unions.

“What you’re seeing with unions is real enthusiasm and a belief that you can actually be successful,” said Robert Bruno, a professor of labor and employment relations at the University of Illinois. “The educational sector is rife with deep grievance and frustration, but there’s now a sense that you can actually win.”

Actions elsewhere emboldened Los Angeles teachers, union President Alex Caputo-Pearl said.

“Each state is different, but the commonality across all states is teachers, and parents are sick of schools not being invested in,” he said.

But unlike other states, schools will stay open if a strike happens. The district has hired hundreds of substitutes to replace teachers and others who leave for picket lines. The union said it’s “irresponsible” to hire substitutes and called on parents to consider keeping students home or join the marchers if a strike goes forward.

It comes as unions are stinging from a Supreme Court ruling last year that said government workers can’t be required to join unions and pay dues.

Larry Sand, a retired Los Angeles and New York City teacher who heads the California Teachers Empowerment Network, said he believes the Los Angeles union sees its showdown with the district as a public “sales pitch” for organized labor now that teachers have a choice about joining.

Sand, whose organization describes itself as a nonpartisan information source for teachers and the public, said overly generous benefits for teachers in the past have overburdened the district.

Teachers earn between $ 44,000 and $ 86,000 a year depending on their education and experience, according to the Los Angeles County Office of Education. The district says the average teacher salary is $ 75,000, which reflects the older, more experienced workforce.

The district has offered a 6 percent raise over the first two years of a three-year contract. The union wants a 6.5 percent hike at the start of a two-year contract. Health care fully paid by the district and a pension plan would be unchanged under both proposals.

The union also wants significantly smaller class sizes, which routinely top 30 students, and more nurses, librarians and counselors to “fully staff” the district’s campuses in Los Angeles and all or parts of 31 smaller cities, plus several unincorporated areas.

The union argues that the district is hoarding reserves of $ 1.8 billion that could be used to fund the pay and staffing hikes. The district said that money is needed to cover retiree benefits and other expenses.

Schools Superintendent Austin Beutner, an investment banker and former Los Angeles deputy mayor without experience in education, has become a lightning rod in negotiations.

The union says Beutner and school board members who voted him in are trying to privatize the district, encouraging school closures and flipping public schools into charters. Charter schools are privately operated public schools that compete for students and the funds they bring in.

Beutner, who attended public school, has said his plan to reorganize the district would improve services to students and families. He and his supporters on the board envision an education system with a “portfolio approach” — public and charter schools under the same leadership.

Sand of the California Teachers Empowerment Network said Beutner is “the right man for the job” because his business background gives him an understanding that “there’s a bottom line that has to be acknowledged.”

Both sides say they don’t want a strike, but John Rogers, a professor of education at the University of California, Los Angeles, said one seems inevitable.

“I would be surprised if a strike doesn’t come about, because I think each side has a real interest in demonstrating the dominance of their positions,” Rogers said.

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

Destinations for first time skiers

ADVERTISEMENT


Picking up a new sport can be a challenging experience but fun nonetheless. Whether you’re going to keep up with the sport after your initial trials largely depends on the type of experience or instruction you get at this time. That’s why it’s important to choose a learning place where all your sporting needs will be catered for and you’ll be in the hands of great and experienced instructors.

This should be the case with skiing. As a first time skier, the area you decide to give the sport your first try should be beginner friendly. If not, you’ll probably end up frustrated and give up the sport early. Good beginner skiing areas should be able to first of all have gentle slopes that are not too challenging. This is where starters will easily pick up basics before they take up more advanced runs. Instructors to offer lessons and skiing courses should also be part of the package, along with hire services for ski equipment. Here are some of the skiing destinations that are ideal for first time skiers.

1. Champoluc, Italy

There are many factors that make this one of the best areas for skiing beginners. At Ski 2, there’s provision of tuition which is vital to any beginner. There’s also equipment hire, so you don’t have to spend money on expensive skiing equipment that you may never use again if you decide that skiing isn’t your kind of thing. To make it even more accommodating to first timers, there’s a school on the establishment that’s purposely for guests. Alongside expert instructors, the schools also provide equipment to learners. Bring in the countless hotels available in this area and the perfect skiing holiday is complete.

2. Soldeu, Andorra

Nobody wants to break the bank for something that might turn out to be a temporary endeavour, and that’s exactly why Soldeu is such an ideal destination for first time skiers who haven’t yet found their footing in the sport. There are extremely good prices which undoubtedly make the sport worth trying. What makes this place even more cost friendly is the fact that it’s duty free. With 2 nursery slopes spanning a wide area which are gentle, getting started becomes easier. There’s also English-speaking ski instructors so language barrier is not an issue and everybody is well accommodated.

3. Méribel, France

The beginner experience is made easier at Méribel with gentle nursery slopes and tuition programmes that get any willing skier started off on the right foot. There’s even a group course for beginners. With three zones dedicated sorely to first timers, this is a great place to learn the basics without jostling with pros. Good news for the pocket too, access to these zones is absolutely free. These can be found in the Mottaret, Platieres and Chatelet areas.

4. Les Arcs, France

At Les Arcs, each of the main villages at the resort have nursery slopes just above them. Along with this accessibility, there’s a free beginner’s lift. One of the areas hosts an award winning ski school, meaning that beginners are in the right hands here. As first times gain more experience they get to progress to more advanced slopes.

5. Bansko, Bulgaria

Bansko happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so there’s going to be the added advantage of marvelous sights alongside skiing. Beginners here get lessons, lift passes and cheap accommodation. There’s a gentle area to teach basics to starters, after which they get to explore exciting forest routes and open runs.

Fans of the show have been eagerly awaiting the start of the new series since the line-up was revealed last year.

Dancing On Ice bosses have made a number of big changes to the new series, including two new dancers and a revamp to the studio – after it was plagued with sound issues.

Host Phillip Schofield gave fans a sneak peek behind-the-scenes on his usual show, This Morning.

Speaking to hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the 56-year-old said: “Happy New Year! It’s only right and proper that my first bit of TV I do after Christmas and New Year should be with you guys in This Morning.”

Panning round to give a full view of the studio and ice rink, the presenter told the hosts that they had a “brand new rink”.

He said: “It’s more substantial than it was last year, you may remember, we had a rattling problem with the howling winds, so we’ve rebuilt the studio.

“The studio audience has a capacity of 530 so it’s bigger than it was last year.”

Bookies have already picked their favourites to win the show with ex-Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, 34, coming out on top.

With over 500 TV shows competing for audiences’ eyeballs, you gotta grab their attention somehow. The Masked Singer, if nothing else, certainly does that.

That much is clear by the end of the first episode, when the woman who very well may be a Kardashian belts out a pop song while in Christina Aguilera-in-“Lady Marmalade”-meets-The-Lion-King-on-Broadway drag—following a man in deer antlers singing through a gas mask snout (Steve Austin?) and a woman lilting in unicorn couture (Paris Hilton?) before her.

Lion, Deer, and Unicorn are but three of the secret celebrities dressed in deranged costumes performing for a panel of judges attempting to guess their identities. In what is being billed as a “Musical Whosungit,” each week, beginning with the hour that aired Wednesday night, one of the 12 celebrities will be unmasked and their true identities revealed.

There’s also a new teaser trailer for the upcoming season, featuring the ominous tidings “when blue and yellow meet in the west” cut between footage of the 1985’s Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve (brought to you by Starcourt Mall). The teaser seems to show someone hacking into “Lynx Corp.,” copyright 1984-1986, and running the program “SilverCatFeeds.exe.” All of that culminates in the Dick Clark New Year’s footage spinning upside down and flashing a brief glimpse of the Mind Flayer.

Josh Peck Welcomes First Child With Wife Paige O’Brien

A very happy new year, indeed! Josh Peck and his wife, Paige O’Brien, have welcomed their first child together — a baby boy.

“Max Milo Peck,” the Grandfathered actor, 32, wrote alongside an Instagram picture of the chubby-cheeked little boy on Monday, December 31. The photo showed the adorable newborn swaddled in a hospital blanket and sound asleep.

O’Brien shared their happy news along with the name announcement on her Instagram page as well, adding a photo of their son wrapped in a brown blanket with a matching white hat and pacifier.

Underneath his wife’s post, Peck added a sweet comment. “Love you both forever,” he wrote.

Peck and O’Brien announced they were expecting alongside a gorgeous picture of the two in August with the glowing mama showing off her baby bump.

“Oh baby. Literally, there’s a baby in there,” he captioned the Instagram pic at the time. “Love u @paigeobrienn.”

O’Brien followed up the post with one of her own, adding, “We’re havin’ a baby!”

John Stamos — who starred as Peck’s dad in the sitcom Grandfathered and welcomed his first child with wife Caitlin McHugh in April — couldn’t contain his excitement for the pair’s growing brood. “The greatest news EVER!!!” he tweeted to the two at the time.

The first-time parents tied the knot in a Malibu wedding in June 2017 after getting engaged in Paris in March 2016.

“What do you guys think of this look?” Peck joked alongside a picture of himself in a tux ahead of their nuptials. “Getting ready for a big night coming up, plus I’ll be able to wear this when I eventually become a waiter.”

Jordan Peele returns with the terrifying first trailer for ‘Us’

TwitterFacebook

Sure, family trips can get uncomfortable even under the best of circumstances. But have you ever seen one turn this terrifying?

The first trailer for Jordan Peele’s Us follows a family (led by Black Panther‘s Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke) on a beach vacation interrupted by the unexpected arrival of four visitors.

Even more shocking and more disturbing is that those visitors turn out to be themselves

It’s a literal manifestation of what Peele, during a trailer presentation in Los Angeles last week, told us would be the theme of the movie: the “undeniable truth” that “we are our own worst enemies.”  Read more…

Darker is the supposed direction of this Hellboy, though that doesn’t show so much in the first trailer. David Harbour’s version of the big, red not-a-monster antihero is humorous, and the…

Rebag Opens First Mall Store in Downtown Manhattan

Luxury handbag resale firm Rebag has opened its fifth store in the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center mall.
The store in downtown Manhattan at 185 Greenwich Street represents the handbag firm’s first mall location. It is also its third New York City site. Two other stores were opened earlier this year on the West Coast in Los Angeles, one in Beverly Hills and the other in Melrose Place. The Madison Avenue store in midtown Manhattan opened earlier this year, as well. The first store in SoHo was opened last fall as a pop-up, then was converted to a permanent location, also earlier this year.
Rebag’s neighbors in the Westfield center mall include Dior Beauty, Breitling, mattress firm Casper and the Apple Store. The store features Rebag’s signature Rebag Bar, where consumers can check in with their handbags and get an estimate on their value. Also a feature in the store is the company’s Hermès Birkin Wall, which shows all available Birkin bags at the store.
Following the opening at Oculus, Rebag will start exploring growth and traffic at U.S. mall sites.

Invasive tick species could have an even larger impact on the US than first feared

longhorned ticks

Late last month the CDC issued a warning about an invasive species of tick that has begun to spread in the United States. Native to Asia, the ticks are gaining a foothold here in the U.S. and they pose a serious threat to both humans as well as animals like livestock and pets.

First spotted stateside a couple of years ago, the parasite is beginning to spread at an alarming rate, and a new study forecasting its relentless march was published this week in the Journal of Medical Entomology. The bad news is that the a huge portion of the country is perfectly suited to allow the ticks to spread. The good news? Well, there really isn’t any.

Letitia James First Black New York Attorney General is Coming For Trump’s Neck — And His Family

Michael Cohen won’t be the only Trump associate serving time in the pen for breaking the law if it’s up to Letitia James. The incoming New York Attorney General revealed that she plans to ignite a fire under President Donald Trump and anyone in his camp who may have engaged in illegal activity within her jurisdiction once she steps into her new role next month.

“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” she said in an exclusive interview with NBC News. James, who currently serves as New York City’s Public Advocate, became the first African American and the first woman to be elected as attorney general in New York, making her one of many African Americans who scored a historic win during the 2018 Midterm Election. “We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” she added.

The former New York City Councilwoman went on to outline the following probes she intends to pursue regarding the president’s namesake business, the Trump Organization, his campaign headquarters, and the Trump Tower — all of which are based in New York.

  • Any illegalities involving Trump’s real estate holdings in New York, highlighting the October New York Times investigation into the president’s finances.
  • The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian official.
  • Examine government subsidies Trump received, which were also the subjectof Times investigative work.
  • Whether he is in violation of the emoluments clause in the U.S. Constitution through his New York businesses.
  • Continue to probe the Trump Foundation.

James is also working on passing a bill that would change New York’s double jeopardy laws so that she could potentially indict someone who allegedly violates New York state law even if they are granted a presidential pardon over federal charges or convictions.

“I think within the first 100 days this bill will be passed,” she said, adding, “It is a priority because I have concerns with respect to the possibility that this administration might pardon some individuals who might face some criminal charges, but I do not want them to be immune from state charges.”

She added, “taking on President Trump and looking at all of the violations of law I think is no match to what I have seen in my lifetime.”

James is not the only black woman in office itching to light a fire under Trump. Rep. Maxine Waters, who has led the charge to impeach Trump, is poised to take over the House Financial Services Committee, which would give her the power to subpoena the president. As chair of the powerful banking panel, Waters could target Deutsche Bank for its past dealings with Trump and issue subpoenas to Trump allies, like Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, forcing him to provide documentation regarding the president’s alleged ties to Russia.

Rep. Kamala Harris is another woman who could give Trump a run for his money should she decide to jump into the 2020 presidential race. She told The Hill that she intends to make a decision about whether to run for president in 2020 over the holidays, adding that it will “ultimately be a family decision.”

Nike Puts Data First for New Techpack Collection 

RUSH HOUR: Nike believes that navigating the city is a sport unto itself and its new Techpack collection, of transitional sportswear, was designed to see customers through full 12- to 14-hour days.
The new collection will drop in Europe exclusively on the Nike app on Dec. 21. It will then be made available at all Nike stores, as of Jan. 10.
The collection marks a new strategy for the brand “to create with data-informed design.”
“This is really the first season we took a step back and looked at the way consumers were using the product. We spend an incredible amount of time working with athletes or people whose training is their prime pursuit and we know everything about them, so we said ‘Why don’t we apply some of that data-informed methodology to someone navigating the city?’” said Kurt Parker, vice president of apparel design at Nike.
“We pulled together a very international design team and found the insights to be very universal. The kid in Shanghai was living a very similar existence to the kid in London and parts of the U.S.,” Parker added.
Pieces include core performance products such as training tights, hoodies, T-shirts and shorts, including Nike’s popular Windrunner style. One of the key product innovations

How Melania Took the Fantasy Out of First Lady Fashion

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

As the blood red Christmas trees that deck the White House halls herald, Melania Trump’s second year as first lady will soon come to an end.

It has been a puzzling 12 months for those who follow Melania’s fashion choices. No matter how many times Melania (or her communications team) attempts to guide the public to “focus on what she does, not what she wears,” the former model seems to value her privacy and say and do publicly very little.

Attention is then inevitably focused on what Melania wears, which this year included the notorious $ 39 “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” jacket she wore to visit detained undocumented immigrant children at the Texas border.

First Male Transgender Pro Boxer Wins Debut Fight

The first professional transgender male boxer in U.S. history made his pro debut on Saturday— with a decisive win.

Patricio Manuel, 33, defeated Mexican super-featherweight Hugo Aguilar in a bout at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif., the Los Angeles Times reported. The judges unanimously ruled Manuel the victor.

Although the bout only lasted for 12 minutes, Manuel’s journey to the fight began years ago, the Times reported.

Manuel decided to transition to become a man a few months after he fought in the 2012 Olympic trials as a woman.

In addition to complex medical treatments, including surgery and hormone therapy, Manuel faced added challenges to preserve his boxing career. Besides working to get a new license, Manuel also lost his coach and his training facility, which were unwilling to work with him after his transition, the Times said.

Manuel told the Times that he was excited to be in the ring.

“I wouldn’t trade any of it. It was worth everything I went through to get to this point,” he said. “I’m a professional boxer now.”

Manuel told an interviewer after the bout that he is determined to keep moving forward.

“I’ve got some naysayers out there— I need to prove that I deserve to be in there as well. I’m not in here for one show, one fight— this is something I love. I’m not done with this sport and I’ll be back,” Manuel said.

Aguilar, who had learned that his opponent was transgender two days before the fight, reportedly handled his defeat with grace.

“For me it’s very respectable,” he told the Times in Spanish. “It doesn’t change anything for me. In the ring, he wants to win and I want to win too.”

The First Woman Soccer Player of the Year Was Asked to Twerk on Stage After Receiving Her Award

One of the most prestigious soccer awards ceremonies in the world sparked outrage Monday night when the first-ever women’s soccer player of the year was asked to twerk on stage by a male presenter.

Norwegian striker Ada Hegerberg, 23, had just accepted her trophy when the presenter, Martin Solveig, a DJ and producer, asked her in French if “she could twerk”. Visibly irritated, Hegerberg declined. With an abrupt “no,” she turned and left.

Hegerberg had just been crowned the first ever recipient of the Women’s Ballon D’or – an annual soccer award that until this year only recognized the best male player in the world. Hegerberg was the leading scorer with 15 goals as her team, Lyon, won the Champions League for the third year in a row.

France Football has awarded the Ballon d’Or to a male player every year since 1956, but this is the first year there has been a women’s award.

Before Solveig’s intervention, Hegerberg thanked all who had helped her to the achievement.

“I want to say thanks to my team-mates because this would not have been possible without them, my coach or our president Jean-Michel Aulas,” Hegerberg said.

“I also want to thank France Football. This is a huge step for women’s football.”

But what should have been a celebratory and historic evening quickly descended into awkwardness and uncomfortable silence. Soccer, like many sports, has a problem with sexism. Solveig’s comments were met with stunned silence in the audience. The ceremony, which took place in Paris, appeared to be cut short after the incident.

In a video posted to Twitter shortly after, Solveig said “he [hadn’t] wanted to offend anyone,” and that the question, intended as a joke, had been misconstrued.

In an interview with the BBC later on Monday, Hegerberg sought to play down the moment.

“He came to me afterwards and was really sad that it went that way. I didn’t really think about it at the time to be honest. I didn’t really consider it a sexual harassment or anything in the moment.

“I was just happy to do the dance and win the Ballon d’Or to be honest. I will have a glass of champagne when I get back,” she said.

On the same night, Luka Modric, who lead Croatia to their first ever World Cup Final and won an unprecedented third Champions League trophy with Spanish club Real Madrid, was named the world’s best male player. Cristiano Ronaldo, who has won the Ballon D’or five times – a record he shares with Barcelona striker Lionel Messi – placed a distant 5th.

It was the first time in ten years that neither player has won the award.

Kat Von D, Husband Leafar Seyer Welcome First Child

Her mini muse! Kat Von D and her husband, Leafar Seyer, have welcomed their first child, a baby boy.

“Meet our beautiful baby boy, Leafar Von D Reyes,” the proud mama captioned an Instagram photo on Sunday, December 2, that showed her husband cradling their newborn, who was dressed in polka dots, while a black Silver Cross baby carriage sat behind him. “Thank you to all our beloved friends+family, fans+followers for your patience in us announcing his long awaited arrival! To be honest, my husband @prayers and I want to take the next 40 days [the 4th trimester] to focus on the baby and our amazing relationship transitioning into amazing parenthood — so, please excuse us if we’re not on here as much for a little while. Just know we love you all and thank you for all the words of love+support!”

Back in September, the tattoo artist, 36, exclusively revealed to Us Weekly her plans to “have a natural, unmedicated, drug-free home birth in water.”

The inspiration? Watching Ricki Lake’s 2008 documentary, The Business of Being Born. “It was life-changing,” Von D told Us of the flick. “After that, we ditched the doctors and found a midwife. We did a lot of research. We’re excited.”

Von D and Seyer (real name: Rafael Reyes) exchanged vows in February. Three months later, the makeup guru announced her pregnancy. “I’m really lucky I have a husband who is really involved in the entire process,” Von D gushed to Us at the time of her author hubby. “Not by choice, you know, I don’t force it on him. He’s super excited to be a part of everything. I’m lucky.”

Even more, the Kat Von D Makeup founder hadn’t suffered from backaches or heartburn while expecting, and told Us she had “no symptoms other than this big belly.”

Despite her pregnancy joy, Von D previously thought that motherhood wasn’t in the cards for her. “No children for me. The funny thing is that I’ve known since I was 7 years old that I was never going to have kids,” she told Dr. Drew Pinsky in December 2017. “I always imagined myself as this worldly, traveling, gypsy lady. I love children, kids love me, but I think I’d make a really good buddy. I don’t know if I’d be a bad mom, but it’s not what I want. I don’t want to put my body through it.”

The L.A. Ink alum was previously married to tattoo artist Oliver Peck from 2003 to 2007. She was also engaged to Jesse James in 2011 and DJ Deadmau5 from 2012 to 2013.

First Lady Melania Trump Wears Reem Acra for G20 Leaders’ Dinner

With the G20 in full swing, the powers that be gathered Friday night at the leaders’ dinner at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. First Lady Melania Trump dressed for the occasion in a custom Reem Acra column dress with a vintage belt and metallic pumps. Her yellow diamond stud earrings were chosen to accent the glittery belt. FLOTUS originally selected the dress for another occasion, but it turned out to be better suited for this one, her stylist Hervé Pierre said.
She and Acra, who is based in New York, are “very good friends,” and the designer suited up Trump for a formal dinner the night before last year’s inaugural, the stylist said. Describing Acra as “a dream,” Pierre said, “Designers can be difficult. [laughing] She is really nice.”
Of course, speculation centered on diplomatic relations, especially Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s welcome to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as the overheard informal exchange between the prince and French President Emmanuel Macron. While Trump met with prime minister of India Narendra Modi and Japan’s prime minister Shinzō Abe earlier in the day, the dinner lends itself to more relaxed conversations among world leaders.

FHA vs. Conventional Loans: How to Tell Which Is Better for Your First Home

You’re planning to purchase your first home. What a glorious event!

Until it comes time to figure out how you’re going to pay for it.

Well, if you’re a first-time homebuyer looking into mortgages, you’ve probably heard of, or looked into, FHA loans. They’re the second most common type of mortgage (behind conventional), but they’re highly popular for home-buying newbies.

Here’s what to know if you’re shopping around.

What Is an FHA Loan?

An FHA loan is a type of home mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and offered by an FHA-approved financial institution.

This insurance gives banks, credit unions and other lenders more leniency to approve mortgages outside conventional loan requirements.

The major advantages of choosing an FHA loan are the easier credit standards and the lower down payment minimums. And if you’ve had any major credit problems like a foreclosure or bankruptcy, you don’t have to wait as long to obtain an FHA loan as you would for other loans.

While your credit score doesn’t need to be as strong for your loan to be approved, the lower your credit score, the higher your required down payment.

FHA Loan Costs

Credit Score Down Payment Required
500-579 10%
580 or higher 3.5%

Your credit score is also a huge factor in determining what you’ll pay in closing costs. Between 2% and 5% of the loan amount is most common, that’s $ 4,000-$ 10,000 on a $ 200,000 loan.

Another perk of the FHA loan is that if you’re not within the required debt-to-income (DTI) range, you can lower yours by blending DTI ratios with a related, non-occupant co-borrower — like your mom, as long as she doesn’t live with you.

Your DTI ratio is your minimum monthly debt payments divided by your monthly income. You can qualify for an FHA loan with a DTI ratio as high as 50%, but you’re more likely to be approved at 43% or less.

But there are some drawbacks, too.

Homes must meet strict structural standards, making most fixer-uppers hard to get approval for. If you’re set on one, look into an FHA 203K loan. The process for approval is lengthier than for a regular FHA loan, but the mortgage includes estimated home improvement costs in the loan amount.

FHA Loan Requirements

Your credit score and down payment aren’t the only requirements for an FHA loan. Like any other mortgage, there’s a long list of requirements, including:

  • Steady income and employment history, usually for the past two years.
  • The property must be the borrower’s primary residence.
  • The property must meet certain minimum standards for appraisal.
  • The appraisal must be done by an FHA-approved appraiser.
  • Your total monthly payment can’t exceed 31% of gross income.

An FHA loan also requires you to pay a mortgage insurance premium (MIP). No matter how big your down payment is, an upfront MIP payment equal to 1.75% of the base loan amount is added at closing. There’s also an annual mortgage insurance premium — similar to PMI on a conventional loan — that varies depending on your down payment.

For example, most people choosing an FHA loan choose a 30-year fixed mortgage with 3.5% down payment. That’ll incur a 0.85% annual MIP for the entire mortgage term, so on a $ 200,000 loan, annual MIP will start at $ 136.71 and gradually go down over the term of the loan.

A higher down payment of 5%-10%, on loans of less than $ 625,000, will incur a lower annual MIP of 0.8% for the entire mortgage term.

FHA Loan vs. Conventional Loan

Conventional loans are by far the most popular type of mortgage, but does that mean they’re better?

That depends on your financial situation.

Say you’re putting down 5% or more on your house. While FHA loans tend to have slightly lower interest rates, conventional loans tend to be less expensive over the life of the loan — because of differences in mortgage insurance premiums.

However, if you don’t have 5% to put down, an FHA loan with 3.5% down will most likely be cheaper than a conventional loan with only 3% down.

  FHA Conventional
Minimum Credit Score 500 for 10% down

580 for 3.5% down

620
Minimum Down Payment 3.5% 3% minimum,

more commonly 5%

Debt-to-Income Ratio
Closing Costs 1%-6% 2%-5%
Private Mortgage Insurance Requires both a 1.75% upfront premium and 0.45%–1.05% annual premiums. Cannot be canceled if downpayment is     Either a one-time payment or monthly fees from 0.55%–2.25% depending on credit. Can be canceled once 20% in equity is reached.

Some people will say that FHA loans have lower closing costs compared to conventional loans, but it’s actually that real estate agents, mortgage brokers and sellers can pay for the closing costs on the buyer’s behalf, at up to 6% of the new loan amount — double whata conventional loan allows.

Ultimately, you’ll want to talk to a local credit union or trusted mortgage broker to find out which option is best for you and your financial situation.

And remember: No matter which loan you start with, you can always refinance when interest rates drop and make extra principal payments to shorten your loan term. That’s how you’ll save the most money in the long run.

So if home ownership is your dream, go on and get that mortgage.

Michelle Obama’s Memoir Sells 1.4M Copies In First Week

NEW YORK (AP) — Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” has become a massive hit.

Crown Publishing told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the former first lady’s memoir has sold more than 1.4 million copies in print and digital formats in the U.S. and Canada in the seven days since it was released Nov. 13.

Based on demand from retailers across all channels, the publisher has printed 3 million hardcover copies in North America. On its first day, the book sold more than 725,000 copies, making it one of the year’s biggest debuts.

Crown also said that “Becoming” is currently the No. 1 adult nonfiction title in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Holland, Spain, Denmark and Finland. In Germany, some 200,000 copies have been sold, prompting a second printing of 100,000 copies.

In the United Kingdom, “Becoming” is published by Viking and it has had five press runs with a total of 575,000 copies in print. In Holland, the Dutch-language edition is the best-selling book in the Netherlands, with the English-language edition ranked second.

“Becoming” is well exceeding the pace of previous memoirs by first ladies. In 2003, Hillary Clinton’s “Living History” had first week sales of around 600,000 copies.

Reviews of the book, which traces Obama’s journey from Chicago’s South Side to the White House, have been positive, with The Washington Post praising its “impressive balance in telling the truth of her challenges while repeatedly acknowledging her lucky life.”

Why to upgrade from coach to first class

ADVERTISEMENT


Unless you’re living the (literal) high life and have the money to spend on first class tickets every time you fly, you’re gonna have to settle for coach. Yep, you’re going to have to continue watching the first class boarders saunter on past you as they embark with their ‘speedy boarding’ passes, and you’re going to have to wonder what the first class passengers are eating while you chomp on your stale bread roll, all while you knock knees with the person next to you. But what if you could get bumped up to first class without paying extra?

Fly regularly

If you’re the kind of person who flies with the same airline regularly, you have a better chance of being upgraded from coach to business or first class. Many people who travel for business or frequently use the airline to go on vacation rack up their air miles and the airlines keep track of these numbers. Many airlines all across the world reserve first class seats for frequent flyers who travel around 25,000 miles each year as a way to say thank you! This decision works for both parties. You’re getting an awesome seat upgrade, and
