First Black Female White House Reporter to be honored with Life-Sized Statue in D.C.

A life-sized bronze statue is underway for Alice Allison Dunnigan, the first African American woman to receive press credentials to cover the White House. The sculpture is scheduled to be unveiled next month at the Newseum, an interactive museum based in Washington, D.C. that celebrates news history and is dedicated to underscoring the importance of a free press and the First Amendment.

Dunnigan, who began her journalism career in Kentucky before moving to Washington, D.C., was a pioneering journalist who rose to the top of her profession despite racist policies that segregated black journalists and sexist attitudes that severely limited opportunities for women in a male-dominated workplace, reads a press release.

Dunnigan was born in 1906 as the daughter of a sharecropper and a domestic worker. As a child, she dreamed of traveling around the world and reporting on her experiences as a newspaper writer. She landed her first writing gig at just 13 years old at a local newspaper where she wrote one-sentence news items.

Her career trajectory shifted when she became older. She completed a college teaching course at what is now Kentucky State University and went on to work as a public school teacher in Kentucky from 1924 to 1942. However, in search of a better paying job, she relocated to Washington, D.C. in 1942 and began working as a federal government employee while taking night courses at Howard University.

In 1946, she was offered a job as a Washington correspondent writing for the Chicago Defender, a black-owned weekly publication that paid her substantially less than her male counterparts. She supplemented her income with other writing gigs, including the Associated Negro Press, where she was eventually named as the outlet’s Washington Bureau chief.

Alice Allison Dunnigan - black journalists

In 1948, she became the first African American female White House correspondent, covering presidential press conferences. She was also granted press credentials to cover Congress, the Supreme Court, and the State Department. That same year, she became the first African American woman on a presidential tour and the only black reporter to cover President Harry S. Truman’s famous whistle-stop train tour.

During her career in journalism, Dunnigan developed a reputation as a hardline reporter, who asked tough questions about racial and gender equality, all while enduring a great deal of discrimination, herself. She was barred from white-only establishments to cover President Eisenhower and forced to sit with the servants to cover Sen. Robert A. Taft’s funeral. “Race and sex were twin strikes against me. I’m not sure which was the hardest to break down,” she once stated, according to the press release.

Nevertheless, she persisted as a journalist until 1960, when she was appointed to a position on Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidential campaign and later as an education consultant of the Presidential Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity. She continued to work in other high-level political and government roles up until the election of President Richard Nixon.

Following her stint at the White House, Dunnigan wrote an autobiography titled A Black Woman’s Experience: From Schoolhouse to White House, which was published in 1974. She died in 1983 at the age of 77.

Dunnigan’s monument is being created by Kentucky-based sculptor Amanda Matthews. It will be displayed at the Newseum from Sept. 21 through Dec. 16 and then moved to Dunnigan’s home state at the West Kentucky African American Heritage Center.

White House Counsel Don McGahn to Leave After Kavanaugh Vote, Trump Says

White House Counsel Don McGahn will leave his job after the Senate votes on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, President Donald Trump said in a tweet.

The development comes as legal risks to the president rise, following the conviction of his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort last week on fraud charges and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen’s guilty plea to charges of fraud and campaign finance violations.

McGahn “will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court,” Trump said Wednesday. “I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!”

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump White House Counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!

During his time as White House counsel, McGahn repeatedly butted heads with Trump and occupied a position rife with conflicts. He has met extensively with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in its investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, and is an important potential witness regarding whether Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey.

Because he’s a witness in the Russia investigation, McGahn has had little involvement in the White House’s response to the probe since at least August 2017, when lawyer Ty Cobb was brought into the West Wing to work directly with investigators. Lawyer Emmet Flood replaced Cobb earlier this year and could move into McGahn’s job.

Flood is well respected within the White House but no decision has been made on McGahn’s replacement, according to one administration official who asked not to be identified discussing a personnel matter.

McGahn also came under fire earlier this year for his office’s handling of a security clearance for former White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter, who was accused of domestic abuse by two ex-wives.

A New Low: White House Raises Flag Before John McCain Is Laid to Rest

Reuters / Brian Snyder

The flag at the White House was raised back to full-staff Monday morning, just hours after it had been briefly lowered to recognize the death of Republican senator and former presidential candidate John McCain.

The move breaks with a tradition that has normally seen sitting senators who die in office have flags officially lowered until burial—and again lays bare the lack of sympathy Trump showed throughout the Arizona Republican’s public battle with brain cancer and particularly in the wake of his death at age 81 on Saturday.

The flag remains at half-staff at other government sites across Washington, including at the Capitol and at the Washington Monument.

White House Uses White Woman’s Murder to Whip Up Anti-Immigrant Sentiment

Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation

Twenty-four hours after an accused murderer led police to the body of a slain college student Mollie Tibbetts in an Iowa cornfield, the Trump administration is using her death to whip up anti-immigrant sentiment—even saying her family has been “permanently separated.”

The White House claimed its hardline immigration policies would have prevented the murder, with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders calling Tibbetts’ death “an unfortunate reminder of why we need to strengthen our immigration laws.” The alleged killer’s lawyer that his client was working in the United States legally.

But regardless of the actual legal status of Tibbetts’ accused killer, advocates for Iowa’s 150,000 immigrants are concerned about the White House’s rhetoric.

New Report Highlights House of Fraser’s Mounting Debt to Brands

LONDON — Trouble continues to mount at House of Fraser as a recent report by Ernst & Young, the professional services firm, cites that the retailer owes millions of pounds to its creditors, including major luxury brand partners.
The retail chain, which was bought on Friday morning by Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley, is indebted to a slew of retailers including Giorgio Armani, Mulberry and Kurt Geiger.
Kurt Geiger is owed 4.9 million pounds, Giorgio Armani 1.59 million pounds, Mulberry 2.4 million pounds, Warehouse 1.4 million pounds and J. Barbour 3 million pounds.
The news follows at the heels of a payment dispute between XPO Logistics, which runs two of HoF’s warehouses, and Sports Direct, who has stopped fulfilling orders for the retailer and who is owed 30.4 million pounds.
As a result, HoF shut down its web site, reportedly sitting on at least 50,000 unfulfilled online orders. XPO Logistics and Sports Direct could not be reached for comment.
The report also shows that HoF made a pretax loss of 4.1 million pounds for the year to Jan. 21, 2018 and in the first quarter to April 28, the retailer witnessed a 7.7 percent drop in turnover with earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization

Mike Ashley to Turn House of Fraser into ‘Harrods of the High Street’

AIMING HIGH: Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley, who purchased House of Fraser for 90 million pounds last Friday morning, revealed in an exclusive post-purchase interview with British tabloid The Sun, that he wanted transform the retailer into “the Harrods of the high street.”
He said his plans are to stock luxury labels such as Gucci and Prada. According to Ashley they are “the biggest thing missing” in the department store today and that stocking those brands “will make a big difference.”
Not surprisingly, industry observers were skeptical.
George Wallace, chief executive of MHE Retail, said in an interview he thinks it will be very difficult for House of Fraser to attract luxury brands.
“The level investment that’s required in those stores to get to a standard where the likes of Gucci and Prada would be prepared to be present is really a massive amount, bearing in mind the size of the stores. Selfridges and Harrods have poured in hundreds of millions of pounds to create an environment supportive of a luxury product.”
He added: “The concept of big department stores in mid-size towns is under serious threat and past its use-by date. Having a luxury department store in a provincial city is not commercially viable.”

Spike Lee: ‘BlacKKKlansman Should Be Shown in the White House’ [Video]

If it was up to legendary filmmaker Spike Lee, BlacKkKlansman, his latest film to date, would be screened in Donald Trump’s executive mansion.

The new film takes place in the 1970s and is based on the real-life experiences of Ron Stallworth, the first African American detective to join the Colorado Springs police force. In addition to facing a number of racial barriers, Stallworth managed to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan as an undercover and befriend former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke through a series of phone conversations. To complete the operation, Stallworth worked with his partner, a Jewish cop played by Adam Driver in the movie, who pretends to be him at KKK meetings.

Like many Spike Lee joints, the overarching theme of BlacKkKlansman underscores the prevalence of racism and the ongoing fight for racial equality. It opens with scenes from Birth of A Nation, a notorious silent picture released in 1915 that glorified the Klan and demonized black men. The controversial drama has been deemed a classic American film and was even screened for then-President Woodrow Wilson along with members of Congress and the Supreme Court.

Birth of a Nation was shown in the White House. Woodrow Wilson saw it and he said it was like ‘writing history with lightning,’” Lee told Black Enterprise. “I think BlacKkKlansman should be shown in the White House—and make sure you put Jeff Sessions in the front row because there are certain things that people are wearing [in the film] that he might be in possession of!” Lee joked, apparently making a reference to the robes worn by Klansmen.

Telling A Part of History

The context of the movie is so surreal that Lee admitted that he had a hard time believing it was true, himself. In fact, when BlacKkKlansman producer Jordan Peele told him about the story, Lee initially thought about Dave Chappelle’s popular black KKK member sketch. Nonetheless, he pounced on the opportunity to create a film about a remarkable piece of American history that few Americans know about.

To tell the story, Lee cast John David Washington, the son of Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington, for the lead role as Stallworth. “I just knew he could do it. I just offered him the part. He didn’t have to do a read for it. He didn’t have to do a tape [or] audition,” said the movie director. “I know talent when I see it. Many people have got their first roles in my films over the last 30 years,” he said, noting Halle Berry and Rosie Perez.

Washington, who graduated from an HBCU, says that he, too, was surprised when Lee told him about Stallworth’s story. “I went to Morehouse, class of ’06, so I learned a lot about my culture and our history [but] this one kind of slipped through the cracks,” he said.

The 32-year-old actor added that working on the film changed his perspective about police, especially those of color, and he hopes it will change how they are viewed by society as well. “I had no idea what it was like to be an African American cop and I’m hoping people will get the chance to see what it’s like with this film,” said the star of HBO’s Ballers. “We need to start celebrating more men and women that look like us that are police and are doing their job correctly. It’s a thankless job.” When asked if he felt anxious or excited for his father to see the movie, he cooly responded, “I hope he likes it.”

“Wake Up!”

BlacKkKlansman takes several jabs at President Trump and ends with a powerful scene that suggests that race relations in the U.S. are getting worse. It also includes a handful of scenes with the words “wake up,” a signature expression in Lee’s work.

“My most famous phrase for all my films is ‘wake up.’ School Days—that film came out in 1988—ends with Laurence Fishburne saying ‘wake up.’  Do the Right Thing (1989) begins with Samuel L. Jackson saying ‘wake up,’” he proclaimed. The term “woke—that’s that new sh-t. We were saying ‘wake up’ in ’88!”

 

BlacKkKlansman will be released in theaters Aug. 10, 2018.

Omarosa To Release ‘Unhinged’ Tell-All About Trump White House

If you’ve been hoping for Omarosa to spill the tea about her time in Trump’s White House… the wait is over, as the exiled former aide to 45 has bagged a seven-figure book deal with a division of Simon & Schuster, Gallery Books.

The reality-tv star is expected to dish about her time in the White House and her relationship with Donald Trump. The Daily Mail reports that the book promises to deliver the juiciest insider scoop about Trump and his administration.

Sources tell DailyMail.com that Omarosa has been a bit  ‘downhearted’ dealing with the aftermath of being exiled by the man who she once called her friend.

The book is expected to be published next month.

Once she was gone from the White House, Trump cut her off completely. He never tweeted about her or said a bad thing like he’s done to others; but he ceased all correspondences with her,” the insider claimed.

Omarosa went on to star in Celebrity Big Brother but has since struggled to book speaking gigs or appearances. She waited to secure the best publishing deal.

“She was smart to drop nuggets of information while on Celebrity Big Brother to get people tantalized. That certainly helped in her finally getting the best publishing,” the source said.

“She knew that Celebrity Big Brother might make or break for her landing a book deal and she maximized that moment.”

Omarosa, who served as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, was allegedly fired last December following reports of an altercation with Chief of Staff John Kelly.

On Wednesday it was reported that she has been interviewed by federal investigators in the Trump-Cohen probe.

Here’s who from Murder House is returning for American Horror Story: Apocalypse, and hold onto your rubber suits

Here’s who from Murder House is returning for American Horror Story: Apocalypse, and hold onto your rubber suits


Here’s who from <em>Murder House</em> is returning for <em>American Horror Story: Apocalypse</em>, and hold onto your rubber suits

Have you spent the last seven years of your life wondering whatever happened to li’l baby Michael? You know, that adorable (demon) baby, the child of the very alive Vivien Harmon and the very dead Tate? You know, that baby! That baby who killed his babysitter, while Jessica Lang coo’ed and caa’ed at it. Wondering what’s happened to Michael Langdon? Well, wonder no more, because he’s officially coming back for American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

All along, Ryan Murphy has dropped clues as to how each season of his anthology series are connected to one another. Some are pretty obvious (like Pepper popping up in both Asylum and Freak Show) while others are subtle (like Madison Montgomery having the same last name as the OG owners of Murder House). Well, the biggest connection is finally here, as Murphy has revealed that a very adult Michael Langdon is returning for Season 8.

Posting to Twitter Thursday afternoon, the showrunner dropped the big news:

FX

And since Murphy always loves to keep it in the family, he’s filling the role of Michael with Cody Fern, who played David Madson on American Crime Story: Versace. That means we’re somehow picking up roughly 15 to 20-ish years after the events of Murder House, which introduced us to a 3-year-old Michael. Murphy has already revealed that the events of Apocalypse take place 18 months in the future — whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Season 8 of the series, which is set to premiere in September, is the long-awaited “crossover season.” As for which seasons are crossing over? Well, Murder House is one of them, and the other is Coven. Long-time AHS cast members Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are set to return, playing brand new characters. As for returning characters, in addition to adult Michael, Emma Roberts will reprise her role as Madison, originally seen in Season 3’s Coven.

While all of this is great, and it’s super exciting, one very important question remains: WHERE IS JESSICA LANGE? The AHS queen hasn’t been seen since Season 4’s Freak Show. And listen, last time we saw baby Michael, he was being watched over by next-door neighbor Constance. It only makes sense that she’d be back for Season 8 now, right? We can’t have the Apocalypse without Ms. Lange.

GOP House Members Move To Impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Conservative members of the U.S House of Representatives introduced articles of impeachment on Wednesday against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein oversees special counsel Robert Mueller as he investigates allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The representatives argue that the Department of Justice has failed to provide documents and other disclosures demanded by the House.

The articles build on some members’ stance that the basis for a special-court warrant to track Carter Page, a onetime Trump campaign advisor, was illegitimate, despite the recent disclosure of a declassified version of the application to the FISA court. They say that Rosenstein has a conflict of interest by having both been involved in that application and overseeing Mueller’s efforts. Further, they claim that the DOJ has withheld documents and us ignoring Congressional subpoenas.

The move will likely never reach a vote, despite its championing by Reps. Mark Meadow, Jim Jordan, and nine others from the so-called Freedom Caucus–all strong allies of President Donald Trump. There’s little interest from other conservatives. Neither the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte, nor Trey Gowdy, head of the House Oversight Committee, signed on to the impeachment effort. Nor did House Speaker Paul Ryan.

A broader swath of Republicans have criticized Rosenstein’s appointment of the special counsel from nearly the moment it occurred. As Mueller has issued subpoenas and indictments, and secured guilty pleas and convictions, the chorus has become more rousing. Some GOP members, however, want to see the process through to its completion, only more rapidly than it appears to be progressing.

DOJ officials told The Hill that they are well underway in delivering documents the House has requested, despite the unprecedented scale of those requests. The DOJ says it has fulfilled or is close to fulfilling three outstanding subpoenas.

The House group didn’t introduce the measure as “privileged resolution,” which would force a vote within a few days. The House adjourns for a month starting Thursday, and invoking that method would potentially lead to the measure expiring before members return.

No executive branch employee or appointee has faced impeachment since U.S. Secretary of War William W. Belknap in 1876. (He was acquitted.) The last president facing impeachment, Bill Clinton, was also acquitted. Were the articles of impeachment to pass with a majority in the House, the Senate would have to vote with a two-thirds majority to convict after a House-conducted trial.

Kim, Fix My House: Creating a Stylish Bathroom on a Budget

Need inspiration? Check out this bathroom design board I put together for the magazine last year!

Turn your bathroom into a stylish and affordable sanctuary with these simple changes.

SERENITY NOW When imagining the ideal spa, one can’t help but think of the soothing music that so often sets the mood. For the ultimate Pavlovian response, install wireless or Bluetooth speakers in discrete areas of your bathroom to make sure that gentle instrumental tones are always available to enhance your experience.

FLUFF IS THE WORD As tactile creatures, we tend to associate soft, fluffy textures with the pinnacle of high-end indulgence. Splurging on soft, white bath sheets is the first step towards the spa zone. Add a luxurious bath mat, fluffy hand and face towels and you’re on your way to treating your body like royalty. To amp up the comfort level, installing a towel warmer will maximize the enjoyment you receive from all of your new plush accessories. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a cozy bathrobe to take the spa into your bedroom and beyond.

LIT FROM WITHIN To truly capture the spa-like ambience, ensure that your lighting scheme includes various sources and levels of brightness. Layers of lighting create a soft, flattering look and aids in the relaxation promoted in the spa environment. Dimmers will be your best friend in achieving that soothing glow that leads all the way towards an evening soak. Don’t neglect heavenly scented candles to complete the effect.

COLOR ME CALM Sticking to the right color palette will transform your bathroom into a space that inspires tranquility. A neutral color scheme of creamy grays, soft whites or pale blues will calm your nerves and reduce the stresses of the day. Complement the gentle tones with elements from nature like a leafy plant, a shell soap dish, or a wooden tray to further relax the senses.

GO CLEAN The latest trend in the blogosphere is to go through all of your makeup and toiletries to remove anything unhealthy for you or the environment. By ensuring that you only keep the products that are good for you, two goals will have been accomplished. A healthier skincare and makeup regime and a pared down number of items to clutter up your new spa space is ideal. Once only the necessities remain, choose attractive straw or clear acrylic containers to store things in the most pleasing way possible.

House of Cards Has a Fourth of July Message From the New President Underwood

This Fourth of July, the new President Underwood wants you to give thanks to… her.

Robin Wright returns as newly minted Commander-in-Chief Claire Underwood in the new promo for House of Cards‘ final season.

“Happy Independence Day… to me!” she says in the video, released on July 4. This was followed by “#MyTurn,” noting it’s finally Claire’s turn to take the White House after five seasons of Frank Underwood fighting for the throne.

The sixth and last season of the Netflix drama began production earlier this year ahead of an expected premiere this year. Season 5 finished with Frank stepping down as President of the United States with Claire stepping up in his place.

Kevin Spacey was supposed to return for the final season, but the sexual assault allegations against him from multiple men, including actor Anthony Rapp, prompted his firing. (Spacey apologized to Rapp, but stated he didn’t remember the alleged encounter. He denied other allegations and announced in November that he was seeking “evaluation and treatment.”)

Now season 6 will focus on Claire. Wright will be joined by Greg Kinnear, Diane Lane, Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott, Boris McGiver, and Cody Fern.

How to Rent a Room in Your House

If your home has extra space, including a spare bedroom, you may have considered renting it out to a tenant. Given that the space likely remains empty throughout most of the year, there’s no reason not to rent it out and make some additional money every month.

Renting a room, however, isn’t as easy as posting a room rental ad on Craigslist. In this post, we cover some important questions to ask yourself before you decide to rent a room in your house and where to start if you decide to do so.

Find Out if Renting a Room is Right for You

Before you decide to rent a room in your house, it’s a good idea to determine if it’s a right fit for you, the members of your household, and your house itself.

Some questions you may want to ask yourself before advertising a room for rent could include:

Do you have enough space for another person?

You may have an extra bedroom, but if you have a small kitchen, one bathroom, and a tiny living room, things could get congested (and people could get cranky), which means you may want to rethink your decision simply due to lack of space.

Do you live with others who should be consulted before a tenant moves in?

Perhaps you have sole ownership of your house but live with your two teenage children. Although they cannot legally prevent you from renting a room to a tenant, you may want to gain their approval in order to maintain stability in the home. If not, you may find yourself in the middle of an awkward, unprofessional situation when your unhappy teens start making snarky comments to your tenant.

Do you have places in your home you would forbid a tenant from entering?

When you rent a room, you don’t necessarily have the luxury of a separate entrance, which means you’ll have to consider how valuable your own privacy is before deciding to rent out a chunk of your home.

For instance, if you have sensitive work information on your computer and no lock on your home office door, you may want to reconsider renting until you invest in a more secure room for your valuable workstation.

Create the Proper Rental Agreement

When you live with your tenants, it can be easy to underestimate the issues that can potentially occur. After all, you’re living inside the home; what could your tenant possibly do, especially in front of you, that could negatively impact your living situation?

In truth, renting anything—a room, house, or apartment—without an agreement is not a good idea. Agreements ensure all parties understand their rights and obligations and can help ease any conflicts that may arise in the future.

For a room rental, a proper Residential Lease is essential. It will safeguard your property and make sure the tenant knows all the important details of their living arrangement, including how much rent they must pay, what part of the property they can access, and more.

In addition, there are aspects of shared living that you may want to address when renting a room, which you could add to your agreement, if it isn’t there already (with LawDepot’s Lease Agreement, this can be done by adding an additional clause). For instance, you may want to consider:

  • House rules and repercussions: are there any specific rules you want to address, and what happens if a rule is not followed?
  • House chores: how will things like household cleaning be divvied between you and your tenant?
  • Parties: what constitutes a party as opposed to a formal gathering?
  • Guests: how long can a guest stay in the home, and can guests stay overnight?
  • Smoking: can tenants smoke indoors, and if not, where can they smoke outside?
  • Pets: can tenants have a pet on the premises, and if so, do you want them to pay a pet deposit or fee to cover any damages the pet may potentially cause?

Without rules, a positive living situation can turn sour in a heartbeat, so it is important to address them at the start of the tenancy.

Know Your Landlord Rights and Obligations

A typical rental situation involves various landlord rights and obligations, including:

  • How repairs will be handled
  • When the landlord can legally enter the tenant’s space (i.e. by using a Notice to Enter)
  • How pests and other problems such as late rent payments will be dealt with

For a room rental, landlord-tenant rights and obligations can blur a little.

For instance, if you are renting a room in your house to a friend, it may seem okay to knock or open their bedroom door to check if they have left for work for the day. However, your tenant has a right to privacy from their landlord, which may include impromptu or too-frequent visits.

Overall, it may be a good idea to set boundaries early on, such as which landlord-tenant interactions are acceptable or not.

Preparing to Rent a Room in Your House

Not everyone has the patience and diplomacy to live with another person, let alone a tenant, which is why you should always start by determining if you can handle a renter in your space before you decide to move forward.

After this, maintaining a positive living situation is a matter of creating the appropriate agreement, knowing and asserting your rights as a landlord, and understanding and committing to your obligations to the tenant.

Expert Tips for Selecting the Right House Plan

The Winchester plan offers a great open
concept kitchen and family room for informal
entertaining and a separate dining room for
more formal events!

It can be a little overwhelming to decide between so many fantastic options so we asked Diego Rizzardo of SanDiego Homes to share some of the tips he uses to help homeowners pick the best home plan for their lot at their Lakeside Living community in Innisfil!

LIFESTYLE Consider the daily needs, activities and hobbies of those who will live there. If you love to cook, a kitchen with plenty of pantry and workspace is a must. If you are a fitness buff, choose a plan that allows space for a gym. If you work from home, you will need space for a home office. Another important aspect is your entertaining style. “If you often have a large number of guests, a flexible, open concept space is a must,” says Diego. “If you prefer a more intimate setting, you may want a plan like The Winchester that has a separate, formal dining space.” You will also want to consider bedroom space if guests often stay overnight.

The Strathmore plan offers bungalow style living
with plenty of space for guests, perfect for
those who love to entertain and want a home
that will allow them to age in place.

CURRENT AND FUTURE NEEDS It is important to consider how your needs may change over the next 5-10 years. A newlywed couple may feel that a two bedroom plan is perfect for them but if they plan to have children in a few years, they will outgrow that plan quite quickly. For older homeowners, it is important to consider future health and mobility needs. “We offer a variety of bungalow style plans that will allow homeowners to age in place without costly renovations down the road,” says Diego. “Wide hallways are also standard in all models to ensure ease of mobility.” A main floor laundry, master bedroom and bathroom may not seem like a necessity right now but may greatly affect your ability to live independently in the home later in life!

PROPERTY AND LOCATION The lot you are building on and the surrounding area may also affect your decision. How will the position of the sun and wind direction affect the home? What is located on each side of the property? Large windows that take in a beautiful view of the sunset are great but those same windows facing the side of the neighbor’s home are much less enjoyable. “Choose a plan that will take advantage of the best aspects of your property.” says Diego, “But also consider available outdoor space and choose a plan that leaves space for outdoor entertaining, gardening or other outdoor activities you enjoy.”

Bravo’s ‘Top Chef’ Stars Celebrate Juneteenth at the James Beard House

Each year, the James Beard House hosts over 200 dinners featuring select world-class chefs who prepare unique tasting menus for guests. However, on Monday, four famed African American cooks from Bravo’s hit reality competition series Top Chef took over the esteemed Beard House kitchen for an unprecedented Juneteenth celebration that honored African American food and culture.

The private dinner was held in New York City at The James Beard Foundation, a nonprofit culinary arts organization named in honor of prolific food writer and cookbook author James Beard, a.k.a. the “Dean of American Cookery.” It was dedicated to the observance of the Juneteenth Independence Day, a nationally recognized holiday that marked the end of slavery for African Americans in Texas and other parts of the South on June 19, 1865. Although slaves were legally free after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, it took two years before the news traveled to all parts of the country. As a result, African American slaves were still working on plantations as late as 1865, while 250,000 people were still enslaved in Texas until Union soldiers traveled to Galveston, Texas, to announce that all enslaved people were free.

At the dinner, the chefs presented a collaborative menu inspired by black southern cuisine and their own roots. In addition to paying homage to his ancestors, Chef Chris Scott said the event allowed him to tell “a story of our people through food.” Some of the dishes he made included hoecakes, which date back to the 18th century, and scrapple, a dish that his grandmother used to make consisting of hog offal. However, it was his grandmother’s famous honey butter biscuits that won the night. “In a million years, my grandmother would have never thought that her biscuits would be served at the Beard House on this kind of night,” he told guests following the dinner.

“A lot of chefs are turning back to their roots, especially black folks,” Scott told Black Enterprise in an interview. “All of us are classically trained in French style, Spanish cuisine, and a lot of European cooking methods, but now we’ve come to a point where we’re turning the curve and we’re coming back home, cooking the food of our ancestors, cooking the food that we grew up on.”

Chef Adrienne Cheatham told BE that cooking Juneteenth-inspired dishes at the prestigious James Beard House was an honor that affirms that soul food deserves the same recognition as other acclaimed fares around the world. “James Beard House is acknowledging Juneteenth. That’s a holiday that has been big among black people for years, but it’s never been recognized by a major institution,” said the Top Chef season 15 runner-up.

Chef Brother Luck, the owner of Four By Brother Luck in Colorado, called the Juneteenth dinner a celebration of diversity. “As someone who’s worked my way up from the bottom, it’s really special to be here tonight.” He also touched on his own Cajun and Creole heritage, saying, “If you look at southern cuisine and Cajun and Creole soul food, it was about making the best of what you had and adapting.”

Check out the Juneteenth dishes in the slideshow below.

‘Legally Blonde 3’: Why We Need Elle to Take Over the White House

The original feminist icon is back! MGM recently announced that, after 15 years, Elle Woods is finally returning to the big screen with the third installment of the amazing Legally Blonde saga. The film is set to open on Valentine’s Day, 2020.

After becoming the most fabulous lawyer at Harvard in the first movie and then finding her way into Washington politics in the sequel, what’s the next step for our pink heroine to take? Well, it’s pretty obvious that we are looking at the next President of the United States of America.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous President of the United States


The race to the white house won&rsquo;t be easy for our heroine.
The race to the White House won’t be easy for our heroine.

Reese Witherspoon’s character has seen a lot of growth since the first Legally Blonde film. She evolved from a conceited rich white girl into an empowered woman who does everything her own way without compromising her ideals.

The last scene of Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde clearly points us in the direction of the White House. But while it may seem like the next logical step in the franchise, the race to for the presidency won’t be an easy one for our heroine.

But, what exactly should we expect from this third installment?

The White House Definitely Needs a Touch of Pink


Elle will have to work twice as hard as her opponent(s) to prove to the masses, the politicians and even to herself that she deserves to be the next POTUS.
Elle will have to work twice as hard as her opponent(s) to prove to the masses, politicians, and even to herself that she deserves to be the next POTUS.

Even when the Legally Blonde franchise is seen as comedy, the writers behind it have always found a way to shed some light on social issues like female empowerment, unethical treatment of animals, and even the LGBTQ community.

But while the actual plot is still unknown, if the movie were to play it smart, the best thing to do would be to show Elle as a mature and smart congresswoman who decides to become the next President of the United States to fight social injustice.

Our heroine will likely discover that women are not easily accepted in positions of power. She’ll have to work twice as hard as her opponent(s) to prove to the masses, other politicians, and even to herself that she deserves to be the next president. And Elle’s husband, Emmet, will need to be 200% more supportive to help tackle all the things Elle is going to face.

A stereotypical misogynistic male politician is probably going to be the villain of choice for Legally Blonde 3. As such, he will probably try to show that Elle, just by being a woman, is less capable than him of being president. He will probably oppose her with everything he has, including dirty, underhanded, and potentially unethical tactics.

The Social Relevance of a Modern Elle Woods


For Elle to be relevant she will need to be more mature and appealing to newer and more critical audiences.
For Elle to be relevant she will need to be more mature and appeal to newer and more critical audiences.

While strong female movie icons like Ellen Ripley and Sarah Connor have surfaced in the past, recent years have seen a refreshing lineup of kickass women like Wonder Woman, Okoye, Lara Croft, and Dr Elizabeth Shaw. However, these great role models and examples of empowered women, sci-fi heroines, and superheroes aren’t examples that everyone can follow because of their particular, and sometimes fictional, careers.

In an era where social campaigns like #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter are a reality many decide to ignore, a real and approachable feminist icon who works hard to achieve her goals with sheer determination and will is as important as it could ever be.

Elle has never shied away from hard work, confronting powerful men and getting her point across. And that’s definitely the kind of president most of us would love to see gracing our screens.

Is Legally Blonde 3 Too Late?


Legally Blonde 3 has definitely a lot of potential, but it will have to go big or go home.
‘Legally Blonde 3’ definitely has a lot of potential, but it will have to go big or go home.

Even as this sequel comes more than 15 years late, many factors can instill new life into the iconic franchise. A good script and a more realistic and approachable characterization of Elle Woods are going to be the most important elements that will make or break the film.

First and foremost, the cast in this one is also going to be pivotal. Some of the old tropes that previous films relied on, like the dumb blonde or the flamboyantly gay guy, aren’t going to fly this time around. These stereotypes will look bad in the eyes of an audience with high hopes for the movie but who are also more aware and critical of these problematic elements in Hollywood. Likewise, if writers tackle social issues, fans will expect diverse representation of queer, black, and Latino social fighters too.

Not least important is that the movie is to be released in the year of the next US presidential elections. As if that wasn’t enough, the film will also compete against unnamed projects by DC and Disney as well as Nimoma.

Legally Blonde 3 clearly has a lot of potential. But the movie will have to go big and make the right decisions or go home without a chance.

Stephen Colbert Is Convinced He Knows Why Trump Disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles From the White House

It’s a long-standing tradition that Super Bowl champions are invited to the White House to meet the president. This year, though, Donald Trump rescinded the invitation to the reigning champs, the Philadelphia Eagles. Trump canceled the visit from the Eagles, because some players “disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem,” he said in a statement Monday evening.

There’s just a small thing that Colbert wanted the president to consider one thing about his rescinded invitation to the Super Bowl champions. “Here’s the thing: no Eagles players took a knee or stayed in the locker room during the anthem last season,” Colbert pointed out on Tuesday night’s episode of The Late Show. “So Donald Trump is blaming a group of black guys for something they didn’t do. They’ll have to rename the Eagles the ‘Central Park 53’.” The last jab was a reference to the fact that Trump believes that the five black and Hispanic teenagers who became known as the “Central Park Five” are guilty, despite their exoneration.

Colbert also called out Fox News, who “never lets the truth get in the way of a good story” ran images of the Eagles’ players taking a knee alongside a story about the rescinded invitation. That wasn’t what the picture showed, though. “Eagles tight end Zach Ertz pointed out on Twitter that was actually footage of him ‘praying before games with his teammates well before the anthem.’ Come on, look, look. It‘s an honest mistake: Fox News also thought this picture was Jesus calling a touchdown!”

‘No One Wants the Invite Anyway.’ LeBron James and Steph Curry Say Their Teams Won’t Visit White House

(CLEVELAND) — Stephen Curry and LeBron James spoke their minds last year. They have not changed their minds this year.

No matter whose team wins the NBA championship, neither superstar will be at the White House anytime soon.

On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl — a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren’t planning on attending of abandoning their fans — Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.

“I’m not surprised. It’s typical of him,” James, the Cleveland star, said of Trump’s decision to cancel. “I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.”

On the eve of Game 3 of the Warriors-Cavaliers series, politics dominated the conversation.

Curry raised Trump’s ire last year when he said he wouldn’t go to the White House, prompting the President to disinvite him and the champion Golden State Warriors.

Curry said Tuesday that he spoke with a current Eagles player about the team’s decision-making process and how it went deeper than disagreeing with Trump policies and the ongoing issue of some NFL players choosing not to stand for the pregame playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

“It’s an important conversation, but you can’t control what other people try to do, or try to control the narrative or things like that,” Curry said.

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments last year and Trump’s subsequent revoking of the Warriors’ invitation. “And every team that’s won a championship since then has gone through that.”

There has been clear tension between many star athletes and the current administration throughout the Trump presidency. Trump has often blasted the NFL players who have kneeled for the national anthem, a protest that started in 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so to protest racism and more specifically the killing of black men by police.

Trump said the Eagles’ event was called off because some of their players “disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”

No Eagles players kneeled during the anthem last season.

“Instead the decision was made to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military,” the Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins wrote in a statement posted to social media Tuesday .

The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx haven’t been invited to celebrate their most recent title, something James called “laughable.” Villanova, the reigning NCAA men’s champion, has not revealed if an invitation was sent. Many members of the U.S. Olympic Team that competed earlier this year in South Korea did not attend a White House reception.

Hockey’s Pittsburgh Penguins and baseball’s Houston Astros have accepted invitations to the White House for the traditional meeting with the President in recent months, as have several college teams. When the New England Patriots went last year, half the team chose not to attend.

The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away.

“I think the President has made it pretty clear he’s going to try to divide us, all of us in this country, for political gain,” said Golden State coach Steve Kerr, who has often criticized Trump and his policies. “So it’s just the way it is. I think we all look forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement and celebrate Americans for their achievement, their good deeds.”

Kerr also lauded the Eagles for being what he called “fantastic citizens in their own community.”

“It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years,” Kerr said.

The overwhelming issue surrounding the Eagles’ planned visit was that most of the team was not going to attend, and that was a major factor in Trump deciding to pull the invitation.

“What else do you expect Trump to do?” Golden State’s Kevin Durant said. “When somebody says they don’t want to come to the White House, he disinvites them. So the photo op don’t look bad. We get it at this point. But it’s good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. Like guys said before me, I’m sure whoever wins this series won’t be going.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Blasts Google for Linking California GOP to Nazism

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Google on Thursday for listing “Nazism” as one of the ideologies of the California Republican Party.

“Dear @Google, This is a disgrace,” McCarthy tweeted along with an image of a Google search result showing Nazism as an ideology of the California GOP.

In another tweet, McCarthy also called the results “the latest incident in a disturbing trend to slander conservatives.”

The reference to Nazism appeared in Google’s “knowledge panel,” which offers summarized search results drawn from a number of sources including Wikipedia. The results changed to eliminate the ideologies during the day on Thursday, according to Vice News, after the website reached out to ask Google about the controversy.

A Google spokesperson told the site it does not politicize search results and that the “Nazism” listing for the California Republican Party was not implemented by a Google employee.

“We regret that vandalism on Wikipedia briefly appeared on our search results. This was not the the result of a manual change by Google,” a Google Communications account tweeted in response to McCarthy. “We have systems in place that catch vandalism before it impacts search results, but occasionally errors get through, and that happened here.”

Still, other conservatives expressed anger at the situation as well. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted his displeasure, and linked the Google results to another tech complaint he had this month. He told his followers last week that Instagram provided a warning message saying posts with his name often “encourage” harmful behavior.

This latest tech controversy comes shortly after the Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump’s reelection committee sent a letter May 17 asking Facebook and Twitter to address political bias on their social media platforms.

I didn’t know how noisy our house was until I got hearing aids

by

Laura Falin

posted in Life

I’m pretty sure I’ve had hearing loss for most of my adult life.

It’s a genetic thing in my family. Although I can’t be certain exactly when it set in, for as long as I can remember, I’ve had to ask people to speak up. When I had a desk job, I always went to other people’s offices to chat, or called them on the phone because I knew talking across the room was futile. I drove my husband a little nuts for years, asking him to repeat himself every time he talked. I’ve had at least one embarrassing conversation where I didn’t want to keep asking someone to say the same thing over, so I smiled and nodded and she looked horrified and wandered off. I’m dying to know what I agreed to.

Pretty sure he said, “I do” just before this. I mean I’m, like, 98 percent certain he did…

After a trip to visit family where we all watched TV together and I couldn’t hear a single thing, I made an appointment with an audiologist, where I discovered that 1) I did, in fact, need hearing aids and 2) they’re not usually covered by insurance. It’s important to note that they are usually covered for children, so please don’t let that stop you if your child needs them. We adults, however, are on our own and those suckers are expensive.

I decided it was cheaper to keep saying “what?” to everyone who talked to me instead of getting them.

In the meantime, we had four children. They’re creative and boisterous and used to having to speak up so I can hear them. They all play musical instruments, which began at 2 years old with them banging enthusiastically on pots and pans. I was so proud.

Sometimes my husband would snap at all the noise, or disappear to our room, or just go stand outside for a few minutes alone, and I always rolled my eyes at his dramatics.

I am sorry to tell you that Kazoo Season was before I got hearing aids. Poor me.

And then through a series of fortunate events I ended up with a lovely pair of hearing aids.

I put them in at the audiologist’s office, where we had the following conversation:

Me: “No. These are too loud. I hear your air conditioning and everything.”
Her: “Yep! That’s just right. These are all sounds you should be hearing.”
Me: “But…I hear myself chewing gum in my own mouth. Ew. It sounds weird and squishy.”

After a few more rounds, she halfway convinced me that these are noises everyone hears all the time. She let me go with stern warnings to keep my new devices on all day long so I could adjust.

I got in the car and almost peed myself when the radio came on at my old volume. I freaked out when I heard my seatbelt click. And I started to realize exactly how many noises I hadn’t been hearing that were going to come rushing at me now.

And then the kids came home.

I picked them up, one at a time, after school. I had a fun conversation with my oldest first. We played a game where he asked things quieter and quieter and I kept yelling, “Yep!! Still hear you! Whatever you used to say under your breath when you were mad at me before — watch it now, buddy, because I HEAR EVERYTHING!! Muahahahahaaaa!” When the second kid joined us, I listened to her tell me about her day without once asking her to repeat herself. I actually teared up.

And then another one got in the car. And another. By the time we pulled into the driveway, everything had blended into one giant cacophony of sound and I couldn’t process it all. Everyone tumbled out of the van in search of snacks, and I just sat there for five minutes without moving. I came inside to find my husband grinning and asking, “How is everyone?” “They. Are. So. Loud.” was all I could manage and of course he did that told-you-so look without saying anything while I stood there in a daze.

I lasted about an hour that day. When I pulled out my hearing aids, my husband mouthed “CHEATER” at me…or maybe he said it out loud. I don’t know. Either way, I couldn’t hear him.

These days, I’m trying to be good. I keep the hearing aids in most days until about 5 p.m., but that’s as long as I can manage. It’s actually a combination of the sound and the fact that it feels so gooooood to take them out. It’s like taking off your bra at the end of the day, I swear to you. I make sure to have them in for school plays and concerts, or when I’ll be out with friends or having conversations with people. I’m trying to work on keeping them in until bedtime but I don’t think I’ve made it that far yet. I know I’m lucky that I have the option of hearing things better when a lot of people do not.

But maybe I’m kind of lucky to have the option to turn down the volume sometimes as well.

Do you have a noisy house? How do you handle it?

How A $2 Act of Defiance Could Bring Waffle House To Its Knees

A nationwide boycott of Waffle House set for Friday has now been issued by the Atlanta branch of Black Lives Matter. As part of the boycott, protesters are being asked to stage a $ 2 sit-in at Waffle House restaurant locations around the country, according to AL.com. Protesters will spend $ 2 on a soda and will consume the beverage at tables and counters in the Waffle House restaurants during peak business hours.

More than a week after 23-year old Chikesia Clemons was violently arrested at one of its locations in Alabama, Waffle House officials are still siding with their own employees saying they called the cops out of “concern for their own safety.” On Monday, company officials invited into its headquarters civil rights advocates including a representative from the NAACP and Black Lives Matter, to view an unedited version of a security tape they purport shows Clemons being belligerent.

Lamar Howard, Clemons’ stepfather told ABC News that Waffle House staff had called police after she refused to pay $ 0.50 cents for plastic spoons and had requested a corporate phone number to lodge a complaint. “She’s owed an apology, just like the two men in the Starbucks,” Howard said.

Early in April, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, both 23-year old entrepreneurs, walked into a Philadelphia Starbucks where they sat, waiting for a business meeting. Nelson immediately asked to use the restroom and the manager insisted something must be purchased to get access to utilize the bathroom. According to 911 accounts, Starbucks staffers had called the police approximately two minutes after the men arrived. In an all too familiar scene, Nelson and Robinson were told to leave the store and when they refused, they were handcuffed and arrested in a video that has gone viral.

Both Nelson and Robinson reached a settlement with the city for $ 1 each, with a $ 200,000 commitment to a youth entrepreneurship program, according to the New York Daily News.

In Clemons’ case, she was slammed to the ground by three Saraland Police officers, as her breasts were exposed while she was being handcuffed.

“When I saw the video, it was very inhumanely done,” Penny Poole, a member of the Gwinnett County NAACP, told reporters.

Saraland Police Department held a press conference last week defending the actions of the three officers. According to Detective Brian Mims, Clemons and her friend Canita Adams, had an alcoholic beverage with them when they came into the Waffle House restaurant to which Waffle House staffers told them they couldn’t have. Mims said the situation escalated with Clemons becoming “loud and using profanity toward the employee.” He said both Clemons and Adams threatened employees, and according to a witness, one of them said, “I can come back and shoot this place up if I need to.”

Coincidentally, the incident occurred on April 22, the same day Travis Reinking shot up a Waffle House restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee killing four. The security tape, which could have clarified exactly what happened and what was said during the entire confrontation did not include an audio.

How the high and mighty have fallen. Until he is formally sentenced, convicted felon Bill Cosby is on house arrest and will have to wear a GPS ankle monitor. 

Hey, those are the rules,

Reports Page Six:

A day after the comedian was found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004, Judge Steven O’Neill outlined the strict bail conditions, saying the 80-year-old can only leave his house to meet with lawyers or doctors.

Even then, he can’t stray far from his home county and needs written permission from the probation office.

Cosby, who is out on $ 1 million bail, faces up to 30 years behind bars.

If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.

Why Adam Rippon, Lindsey Vonn and More Winter Olympics Stars Skipped the White House Visit With Trump

President Donald Trump hosted American athletes who competed at the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics at the White House on Friday — but some of the PyeongChang games’ most famous faces opted to skip the ceremony.

Ice skater Adam Rippon, skier Lindsey Vonn and snowboarder Chloe Kim are among the marquee names who skipped the trip to Washington. Five American Olympians — including cross-country skier Jessie Diggins, freestyle skier David Wise and biathlete Maddie Phaneuf — made the trip to Washington to meet with Congressional leaders on Wednesday about their climate change advocacy work with Protect Our Winters Alliance. But they won’t attend the White House celebration because they made the “Congressional briefing their priority,” a spokesperson for the athletes told USA Today.

Some athletes cited Trump’s politics as their reason for skipping the White House meeting, while others said they had scheduling conflicts. Almost 200 athletes were expected to attend the event, according to the Washington Post.

President Trump did not mention the absences in his remarks at Friday’s event. Instead, he lauded some of the other athletes in attendance, including figure skater Vincent Zhou, the gold medal-winning women’s hockey team and the men’s curling team, which also took home gold at the 2018 Olympics.

Here are some of the big names —including Adam Rippon, Lindsey Vonn and Chloe Kim — who chose to skip the 2018 Winter Olympics celebration at the White House this year:

Adam Rippon

FSKATING-OLY-2018-PYEONGCHANG

Rippon, a 2018 TIME 100 honoree and the first openly gay American athlete to qualify for the Winter Olympics, told TIME last month that he wouldn’t attend.

“This Administration ran on a platform of fear. I don’t think that’s any way for us to live. I would never want my sister to be spoken to the way Donald Trump has spoken to women. I would never want anyone to talk to my mother that way. And my mother would never tolerate one of her sons doing that, either. I think we can do better,” Rippon said.

The figure skater, who won a bronze medal as a member of the U.S. figure skating team in PyeongChang, famously said he didn’t want to meet with Vice President Mike Pence before the 2018 Olympics and criticized the Vice President’s views on gay marriage.

Lindsey Vonn

Vonn, who won a bronze medal in PyeongChang in downhill skiing, told CNN in December 2017 that she would “absolutely not” go to the White House after the 2018 Olympics, which took place in February.

“Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn told CNN at the time. “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”

Chloe Kim

Kim, the 17-year-old snowboarding sensation who won a gold medal at the 2018 Olympics, also didn’t attend Friday’s ceremony. She told the Washington Post she had a wedding to attend.

Kim, who was also a 2018 TIME 100 honoree, has spoken out about causes aligned against Trump in the past. In March, she tweeted her support for March for Our Lives, the massive gun control rally organized by the survivors of the deadly Parkland, Fla. shooting earlier this year.

Gus Kenworthy

Freestyle skier Kenworthy, who is also openly gay, opted not to make the trip to Trump’s White House.

Kenworthy has spoken out about Trump in the past, telling TIME in July 2017: “I think we had been two steps forward with Obama. And it’s a step back with the Trump administration.”

Erin Hamlin

Hamlin, who served as the flag bearer for Team USA in the 2018 Opening Ceremony, didn’t attend Friday’s festivities, according to USA Today. The luger said she planned on visiting the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center on Friday morning instead.

Mikaela Shiffrin

Shiffrin, who won a gold medal in giant slalom at the 2018 Olympics, chose not to visit the White House, according to the Washington Post. She did not speak publicly about her decision, but told CNN in 2016: “The value that [Trump] portrays to everyone is not ideal… I don’t think women are going to be looking to him. I think they still look to Hillary [Clinton].”

Shaun White

Shaun White, the legendary snowboarder who took home a gold medal in the halfpipe event in PyeongChang, was another notable name who skipped Friday’s festivities, according to the Post. He told the Post he was attending a wedding.

Mirai Nagasu

The figure skater, who became the first American woman to land a triple axel in PyeongChang, told the Washington Post that she was too busy with rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars to make the trip to Washington.

French First Lady Brigitte Macron Is a Grecian Dream at the White House

Brigitte Macron is on the move again. After conducting a state visit to India last month, the French first lady and President Emmanuel Macron have embarked on three-day trip to Washington, D.C., where she’s already shown off a handful of polished outfits since landing yesterday.

For a state dinner at the White House on Tuesday night, Macron was a Grecian vision in a embroidered white gown, which is definitely bridal-worthy in our minds. (Blame it on bridal fashion week or Meghan Markle, but weddings are on our brains right now.) Read on to see her formal look, plus everything she’s worn in Washington, D.C. so far.
