Herno’s New Showroom Seen as Key to Increasing U.S. Sales

NEW YORK – Herno is stepping up its efforts to expand in the U.S. market.
The Italian luxury outerwear brand has opened a permanent showroom on Varick Street in Tribeca to better service its existing customers — which include Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York, Nordstrom and Mitchell — and others seeking a sartorial alternative to the ubiquitous Canada Goose and Moncler puffers.
Herno has had a small presence in the U.S. in the past and had been represented by the M5 Showroom, which is located in the same building. But now Claudio Marenzi, president and chief executive officer, has moved a few floors down and opened a cleanly designed space where the brand can present its full offering of men’s, women’s and children’s coats hanging on hooks similar to how they are displayed in its retail stores.
Herno is sharing the floor with Woolrich. Although the two brands have no professional affiliation, Marenzi said they are friendly competitors with a mutual respect. Both firms had been represented by M5 and wanted to have their own space, so it was a practical decision.
Marenzi said that over the past five years the U.S. has grown to represent a larger chunk of Herno’s business. It now

51 Women are Suing the U.S. Olympic Committee for Failing to Prevent Abuse By Larry Nassar

(DENVER) — Fifty-one women are suing the U.S. Olympic Committee, its board members and a number of former high-ranking officials for failing to prevent their abuse at the hands of imprisoned sports doctor Larry Nassar.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in federal court in Denver, details abuse dating to the late 1990s. One of the victims was 8 years old.

Most contend that because they were young and sexually inexperienced, they were not aware they were being abused at the time. Some became aware when other victims began telling their stories at Nassar’s 2018 sentencing hearing for child pornography and sex abuse. Others acted after the release of a report in December that detailed the USOC’s slow response to sex-abuse cases.

The lawsuit alleges the USOC violated Title IX and the constitution by not acting promptly and more forcefully.

The USOC said the federation would have no comment on pending litigation. The governing body has tried to remove itself as a defendant in a number of other similar lawsuits, contending it should not be held legally responsible for Nassar’s crimes. Those lawsuits include USA Gymnastics as defendants, but this one singles out the USOC, which is based in Colorado Springs.

The lawsuit outlines abuse by six other coaches, and the USOC’s slow response to it, though most plaintiffs say they were abused by Nassar.

Many of the plaintiffs’ claims in this lawsuit are similar to those of other victims: Often their parents were present during the examinations but Nassar positioned himself in a way that they could not see what was happening.

One plaintiff described gasping and looking over at her mother when Nassar touched her inappropriately, and Nassar responded by saying “Sorry, cold hands.”

In addition to compensation, the plaintiffs are asking for institutional reform at the USOC. Virtually all the top executives — including the chairman, CEO and sports performance director — have left voluntarily or been fired since Nassar’s sentencing in January 2018.

All 28 Women’s National Team Players Sue U.S. Soccer for Equal Pay

Players for the U.S. women’s national soccer team have filed a federal gender discrimination lawsuit seeking pay equal to that of their male counterparts.

The action comes just three months before the team will defend its title at the Women’s World Cup.

The class-action lawsuit was filed Friday in federal court in Los Angeles under the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. It alleges gender-based discrimination by the U.S. Soccer Federation.

The players allege they have been subject to ongoing “institutionalized gender discrimination,” including unequal pay, despite having the same job responsibilities as players on the men’s national team. The 28 members of the current national team player pool joined in the lawsuit.

The U.S. Women’s National Team Players Association was not party to the lawsuit, but in a statement said it “supports the plaintiffs’ goal of eliminating gender-based discrimination by USSF.”

The U.S. Soccer Federation didn’t have an immediate comment.

The players are seeking equal pay and treatment, in addition to damages including back pay. The complaint was filed on International Women’s Day.

“Each of us is extremely proud to wear the United States jersey, and we also take seriously the responsibility that comes with that. We believe that fighting for gender equality in sports is a part of that responsibility. As players, we deserved to be paid equally for our work, regardless of our gender,” forward Alex Morgan said in a prepared statement.

This is not the first time the players have sought equitable compensation and conditions.

A group of players filed a complaint in 2016 with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that alleged wage discrimination by the federation. The players maintained that players for the men’s team earned far more than they did, in many cases despite comparable work.

The lawsuit effectively ends that EEOC complaint, brought by Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Becky Sauerbrunn, Carli Lloyd and former goalkeeper Hope Solo.

The team took the fight into contract negotiations and struck a collective bargaining agreement in 2017 that runs through 2021.

The players received raises in base pay and bonuses as well as better provisions for travel and accommodations, including increased per diems. It also gave the players some control of certain licensing and marketing rights. Specific details about the deal were not disclosed.

“This lawsuit is an effort by the plaintiffs to address those serious issues through the exercise of their individual rights. For its part, the USWNTPA will continue to seek improvements in pay and working conditions through the labor-management and collective bargaining processes,” the players’ union said.

The USSF has in the past maintained that much of the pay disparity between the men’s and women’s teams resulted from separate labor agreements.

Dunhill to Spotlight New Brand Positioning in U.S.

The Alfred Dunhill brand can trace its roots all the way back to 1893 but its presence in the U.S. market over the years has been spotty at best.
In the Fifties, the London-based brand operated major stores on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles and Rockefeller Center in New York and counted celebrities such as Frank Sinatra as fans.
But it slowly lost its grip on the market as management changed, stores closed and the brand cycled through a number of designers including Richard James, Nick Ashley, John Ray and Kim Jones.
Enter Andrew Maag, a former Burberry executive who joined the brand at the end of 2017 and promptly set out to “right size” the business and redirect its focus back to its core business. “We were really missing the mark in the luxury space,” he said. “But we’re just now experiencing a turnaround.”
That has been helped in large part by the positive reaction to the modern tailoring created by the company’s new creative director, Mark Weston.
At the same time, Maag said that since joining the company, one of his major focuses has been updating the fleet of stores. “They desperately needed to be brought up to relevant standards,” he said.

Calling Out the Caregiving Crisis in the U.S.

According to a recent Harvard Business School study, almost three-quarters of U.S. workers face some kind of caregiving responsibility—and of them, 32 percent left a job because they couldn’t balance work and family duties and more than 80 percent said their responsibilities at home kept them from doing their best at work.

Those are staggering figures—and ones that I’m all too aware of through my work with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation.

(U.S. Army photo)

I’ve spent over 10 years working in philanthropy, as an executive director for a non-profit and as a critical care nurse. I’ve witnessed firsthand the joys and trials of family caregivers, and in my current position, I support the Foundation’s investments in caregiving, one of the fundamental tenets of our work.

That HBS study zeroed in on one of the biggest obstacles facing caregivers: so much of their work goes on behind the scenes, and even friends or employers may be unaware of their caregiving obligations. While 80 percent of workers said their productivity had been affected by their caregiving responsibilities, just 24 percent of employers said caregiving was affecting the performance of their employees.

That gap is likely taking shape because many employees hide the burden of caregiving responsibilities. They struggle to balance the unexpected and recurring care obligations that require mental, physical and financial resources to address. This sets off a tough cycle: Caregivers struggle to balance their work and family responsibilities, they grow overstressed and their performance at work suffers. Some may even leave the workforce entirely, leaving employers to cover another major cost in the loss of talented, trained employees.

The current caregiving landscape is particularly hard on women, who make up 60 percent of caregivers in the U.S. Women have long carried the responsibility of caring for their families and loved ones, which places a heavy burden on their economic security—they’re more likely to take leave, but tend to have lower retirement savings, in part due to the cumulative impacts of the wage gap over time.

There are many complicated challenges facing caregivers across the country, not the least of which is articulating what it means to be a caregiver. The spectrum of care, from childcare to eldercare, crosses demographics and takes many forms. Many caregivers do not even identify as such. We’re committed to helping to address this trend by investing in initiatives and programs that will make caregiving a respected, and better supported, role for family members. We want to help to identify and share positive stories of caregivers—and in doing so, elevate the role of “caregiver” as something to be not only understood, but celebrated.

Being a caregiver can also be an isolating experience. Many people feel they’re alone in shouldering the burden, even when it comes to caring for immediate family members. A study from the Practica Group, which reinforced the findings of many national studies, revealed that family caregivers are often unaware of existing resources, or find them too daunting to be useful. That’s why it is critical to build networks of organizations, individuals and volunteers that support family caregivers, in ways they find respectful and easy to access—whether that’s expanding volunteer networks to better serve family caregivers or providing support to existing institutions like local hospitals to offer expert support for family caregivers whose loved ones are grappling with serious medical challenges.

The good news is that there are already promising resources and services available to caregivers: The TimeSlips program provides resources and tools for family members to use storytelling to meaningful engage with relatives who have dementia; BonaResonds, based in rural Allegheny County, New York, builds wheelchair ramps for people who would otherwise be unable to leave their homes. But further investment and resources are needed. We’re focusing on supporting existing programs for caregivers to maximize their reach and effectiveness—providing non-profits with marketing and communication support to collect data and information about the caregivers they serve, for example, in order to understand the market for their programs and services.

There’s no denying that we’re facing a crisis around caregiving in the United States, and that it is only going to worsen. As the U.S. population continues to age, more and more Americans will assume caregiving responsibilities. It is imperative that we properly invest in educating, supporting and championing caregivers across the country, and we all have a role to play. It is time for employers, politicians, and business owners alike to recognize the work of caregivers and increase awareness around the issue. 

Caregivers deserve to have access to resources and support from their employers. They deserve to have their work acknowledged—particularly women caregivers, whose economic security is inextricably linked to access to family friendly policies and resources.

Amber Slichta is the Vice President of Programs for the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation.

The U.S. Legal System is Failing FGM Survivors

Half a million. That is how many women and girls across the U.S. are currently at risk of or have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s a number that surprises many—and so should the fact that just 28 states have enacted laws to provide protection against this form of violence and control over female bodies and sexuality.

View this post on Instagram

With #ZeroToleranceDay to #EndFGM approaching let’s not forget that Female Genital Mutilation happens all over the world. When girls grow up where FGM is against the law, they may be taken somewhere where FGM not illegal, or where the law is not implemented effectively. We must work together to ensure girls are safe from FGM across the world. Taking a girl, for the purpose of having her cut, where FGM not against the law does not stop it being a human rights violation. FGM is a global issue but so is the movement to end it. Stand with us to #EndFGM – link in bio #womensrightsarehumanrights #humanrights #womensrights #wespeakout #antarctica #whyimarch #womenswave http://ow.ly/yYoO50kw7Dn

A post shared by Equality Now (@equalitynoworg) on

FGM involves removing and damaging external female genitalia for non-medical reasons, thereby interfering with the natural functions of girls’ and women’s bodies. The World Health Organization cites four classifications of FGM: clitoridectomy, which is the partial or total removal of the clitoris; excision, involving the removal of the entire clitoris and the cutting of the labia minor; pricking, nicking or in other ways damaging the female genitalia; and infibulation, recognized as the most extreme form of FGM, in which all external genitalia are removed and the two sides of the vulva are stitched together, leaving only a small hole. All forms of FGM are internationally recognized as gender based violence, with no medical benefit, and FGM is also recognized as a human rights violation.

The procedure is typically carried out on girls between infancy and 15 years of age. Survivors of FGM are impacted everyday for the rest of their lives. After being cut,  menstruation, and sexual intercourse can be excruciatingly painful, and women and girls who have undergone FGM can face serious difficulties during childbirth, along with other persistent risks to their physical and psychological well being. Some girls even die from infection or bleeding. As of 2016, there are over 200 million women and girls worldwide who are living with  FGM.

In September 2015, 193 countries, including the U.S., adopted a target in the United Nations Sustainable Development goals to eliminate FGM by 2030. FGM was made illegal in the U.S. in 1996, more than two decades ago, but it was not until last year that the first federal charges were brought under the law.

In 2017, a Detroit-area emergency room physician, Jumana Nagarwala, was charged with using a clinic belonging to another doctor, Fakhruddin Attar, to perform FGM on what federal law enforcement estimates was up to 100 young girls over a twelve year period. In November 2018 all eyes were on Judge Bernard Friedman’s courtroom in the Eastern District of Michigan as he heard the case brought against Nagarwala by nine girls, ranging in age from seven to 13, from Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota.

Equality Now joined FGM survivor-led organizations Sahiyo, WeSpeakOut and Safe Hands for Girls in submitting an Amicus Brief in the case, in which we argued that the federal government has the authority to prohibit FGM based on the cross-border nature of what is an organized community activity, and that Congress also has the power to enact laws in accordance with treaties the U.S. has signed—including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, signed by the U.S. in 1992, which requires signatories to report on what is being done to address FGM in accordance with global recognition of the practice as a violation of the human rights of women and girls.

We knew that this wasn’t just about nine young girls whose lives had been irrevocably changed in a clinic in a Detroit suburb. At the time of the trial, Illinois and Minnesota had laws against FGM. Michigan didn’t. Among the 28 states with laws prohibiting FGM, only eleven have provisions in their laws prohibiting transporting a child out of state to undergo FGM. What happened to these girls in Michigan is indicative of what we know is at risk of happening to hundreds of thousands of girls across the U.S., or what has already happened to those women and girls living with FGM. 

FGM doesn’t just transcend geographic boundaries; it happens across lines of religion, culture, education and socioeconomic status. It happens among groups like the Dawoodi Bohra, at the center of the Michigan case, but also in white Christian communities. “FGM happened to me in white, Midwest America,” Dr. A Renee Bergstrom, whose clitoris was removed at the age of three as a “cure” for masturbation, wrote in a December 2016 essay for The Guardian. She goes on to describe “Christian leaders and doctors recommending circumcision,” “physicians carrying out the practice” and “American culture first accepting this form of sexual abuse and then denying it ever occurred.”

Judge Friedman ultimately ruled that Congress had overstepped its authority in the 1996 legislation outlawing FGM, and ruled the federal ban on FGM “unconstitutional.” But his argument did not sanction FGM, nor does it carry any authority outside of Michigan’s Eastern District. He failed to see that FGM is a “commercial practice,” ignoring the reality that, in most communities, medical practitioners and traditional cutters are compensated for their services—and that performing FGM is lucrative work. The Department of Justice, which recognizes FGM as a form of child abuse, appealed the decision, and now it’s up to the Sixth Circuit Court to reinforce that FGM clearly falls under the lawmaking authority of Congress as stated by the Constitution.

How is it that other countries are making positive progress on banning FGM—while the U.S risks potentially moving backwards?

Standalone laws against FGM, at the state and federal levels, send a powerful and important message about our nation’s will to protect girls in the U.S. and around the world from harm and human rights violations. Protecting children from FGM, however, also requires going beyond law enforcement. We need to be engaging schools, teachers, school counselors, health workers, community leaders and social workers—the people girls at risk engage most with and those who can provide services to FGM survivors. 

Advocates marked International Day of Zero Tolerance Day for Female Genital Mutilation earlier this month, on February 6—a day for the global community to come together to raise awareness around FGM. Building on informal working groups that began several years ago, this past Zero Tolerance Day, Equality Now was thrilled to be part of the launch of the U.S End FGM/C Network, and we’re proud to serve on the inaugural Steering Committee. The Network brings together policymakers, healthcare professionals, civil society organizations, foundations, activists and survivors committed to eradicating FGM in the U.S. and around the world.

The key to ending FGM around the world is talking about it, and using the law as a tool for prevention and education. Together—with survivors who are sharing their stories, raising their voices and making a different choice for their daughters—we can ensure the conversation around FGM is had more widely and more openly and engenders more protections for those at risk.

And we can start right here at home—by demanding a law against FGM in every single state.

Kashiyama Rolling Out Made-to-Measure Concept in U.S.

NEW YORK — Onward Kashiyama, the Japanese conglomerate that owns Jil Sander, Joseph and J. Press, has come up with a novel way to introduce its new men’s made-to-measure suit concept to the U.S. market: open shops at WeWork locations.
The company launched Kashiyama the Smart Tailor in Japan at the end of 2017 and sold 59,000 suits, bringing in sales of $ 40 million its first year. Jun Murakami, president and chief executive officer of Onward USA and J. Press, is hoping to replicate that success in the U.S.
The brand’s point of differentiation, he said, is its price — suits start at $ 300 — as well as quick turnaround and manufacturing expertise. Kashiyama’s suits are made in a company-owned factory in China and can be produced and delivered to customers in 10 days.
Although the competition in affordable made-to-measure men’s wear is stiff in the U.S. with brands such as Indochino, Knot Standard, My Suit, Men’s Wearhouse and others already entrenched in the market, Murakami believes Kashiyama can find a niche.
“Most of our competitors are technology companies or new companies that don’t have an apparel background,” he said. “They don’t have the knowledge that we have.”
Onward Kashiyama was founded in 1927 and now

The most visited U.S. cities in the last decade

ADVERTISEMENT


Many cities in the United States receive a huge influx of visitors every year. These include both foreign and domestic tourists. Travelers interested in culture, history, shopping, adventure, or just plain experiences have cities that satisfy their needs and interests. Each city has its unique features that serve as an attraction to millions of visitors each year, year in and year out. Some cities have maintained a steady flow of visitors over the last ten years, and the numbers keep rising. The question is, what makes these cities tick? What makes millions of people flood their airports daily throughout the year? Below, we’ll look at some of the most visited cities in the U.S. in the last decade and see what they have to offer.

1. New York City

The largest city in the United States, New York definitely has a lot to offer. This is a place where you’ll find people from all regions, races, and walks of life. It’s riddled with architectural and historical monuments, including the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, which are both sights that anybody visiting New York for the first time would like to see. It’s an ideal destination for fashion lovers, art enthusiasts, and foodies. Famous department stores, international designer outlets, and well-known eateries are commonplace here. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which houses over two million pieces, also acts as a major attraction site, alongside the American Museum of Natural History and Broadway’s many theaters and shows.

2. Las Vegas

Located in the Mojave Desert in Nevada, one word comes to mind with the mention of this city: luxury. It’s the go-to city for fun lovers who are looking to indulge in the very best of entertainment, shopping, or gambling, since the city is famous for its 24-hour casinos. It’s also known for its luxurious hotels that offer exquisite accommodation and dining experience, with an entire 2.5 mile long stretch lined with the most luxurious of them all. The nightlife here is one that sets trends for all other cities.

3. Los Angeles

Right after New York City in size, Los Angeles is the movie and TV buff heaven on earth. Easily the capital of the entertainment industry in the country, it hosts mega production studios such as Warner Brothers and Universal. Studio tours are a major attraction. It is also home to famous neighborhoods such as Hollywood and Beverly Hills. On another note, visitors also love it for its beaches that come with a pleasant climate.

4. Chicago

One of Chicago’s main attraction points is the fact that it’s culturally rich. The Art Institute of Chicago, for example, houses more that 100,000 works of art. The city is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and has a stunning skyline, which makes it incredibly scenic. It is also an ideal destination for shoppers and foodies. Unique architecture adds to its general appeal.

5. San Francisco

San Francisco’s temperate all-year-round climate is one of the reasons that visitors keep flocking to the city all throughout the year. It’s the ideal scene for outdoor adventurers, with a food scene that includes delicious seafood at the Fisherman’s Wharf. It also has a rich culture and history that sets it apart from other cities in the country.

The U.S. Has Never Needed Paid Family and Medical Leave More

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) turned 26 this week, just as President Trump was preparing to talk paid leave during his State of the Union address.

The Family Medical Leave Act was an important first step. Now it’s time to pass the FAMILY Act. (MomsRising)

As the most female Congress in history gets to work, lawmakers have an urgent imperative to adopt comprehensive paid family and medical leave that allows all workers to care for their families without risking their jobs or financial security. No issue is more important to moms across the country.

Moms need paid leave to care for new babies, for sure, but also to care for a spouse or sibling who is battling heart disease or a parent struggling with dementia, or to recover from illness or injury.

Not just any paid leave program will do: The U.S. needs a comprehensive, meaningful paid leave program that covers all workers, addresses the range of caregiving needs families face, expands the definition of family, provides wage replacement sufficient to allow workers with low wages to take leave and ensures that the same or comparable jobs will be there when workers return from their leave.

We expect that, as with last year’s State of the Union, Trump’s lip service to paid leave will be followed with sparse details. In the past, his paid leave proposals have fallen far short of what working families need—providing only parental leave, doing nothing for workers who need leave to care for a sick family member or to recover from illness—and the benefits they would offer would not be meaningful, and would be especially inadequate for workers with lower incomes and wages. Their eligibility rules may even exclude the new parents who need leave the most.

That is not what the country needs.

Similarly, some Republican lawmakers have offered proposals that are deeply, even fatally, flawed—because they would reinforce stereotypes about women, require workers to trade future Social Security benefits for paid leave and/or provide inadequate job protections.

That would not be what our country needs.

Twenty-six years ago, the FMLA required certain employers to provide workers with 12 weeks of unpaid job-protected leave to welcome a new child, care for an ill family member or recover from a serious illness. It was a vitally important starting point, but it does not meet the needs of working families or our economy today.

We need the Family and Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act to boost moms and families, strengthen our economy, improve our health and make our workplaces more equitable.

The FAMILY Act, which we expect will be introduced in both the House and Senate very soon, would create a social insurance fund with small contributions from employees and employers; provide all workers with a meaningful amount of leave to meet the full range of caregiving needs; and be affordable, cost-effective and sustainable for workers, employers and taxpayers.

We want to be clear: A paid leave program that provides only parental leave is a non-starter for the millions of MomsRising members across the country who see paid family and medical leave as top priority issue.

Congress must pass the FAMILY Act, and President Trump must sign it into law. It’s time for the U.S. to finally give moms, and all workers, access to paid family and medical leave.

Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner is the author of Keep Marching and Executive Director and CEO of MomsRising—an on-the-ground and online grassroots organization of more than a million people who are working to increase family economic security, decrease discrimination against women and moms and build a nation where businesses and families can thrive. 

Ruth Martin is the Vice President of Workplace Justice Campaigns at MomsRising.

Alysa Liu Wins U.S. National Figure Skating Championship at 13 Years Old

(DETROIT) — Alysa Liu was already a phenom. Now she’s a national champion at age 13.

Liu stole the show Friday night, breezing through a free skate that included two triple axels and dethroning 2018 winner Bradie Tennell at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Liu became the youngest winner of an individual title at this event, and after her score was posted, she put her hands over her face, overcome with emotion.

“I was just happy that I beat my personal record, and I did a clean long program,” Liu said.

Liu had already landed a triple axel in the short program Thursday, and she was in second place behind Tennell entering Friday. Tennell fell during her long program, and Liu, skating immediately after, seized the opportunity. Her first triple axel was in combination with a double toe loop. Then she landed another triple axel, and by the time she finished her performance — set to “Witches of Eastwick” by John Williams — she was beaming.

Tara Lipinski was the youngest women’s champion at nationals after winning at age 14 in 1997, and Scott Allen also was 14 when he won in 1964. Now a commentator with NBC, Lipinski was there Friday when her record fell.

“Records are made to be broken,” Lipinski said afterward. “It is quite an honor that she is the one to do it. What a phenomenal talent.”

Earlier Friday, Madison Hubbell and Zach Donohue took a step toward defending their ice dancing title, finishing atop the standings after the rhythm dance. Hubbell and Donohue will compete for their second straight national championship in the free dance Saturday.

Madison Chock and Evan Bates were second after the rhythm dance, followed by Kaitlin Hawayek and Jean-Luc Baker.

The ice dancing competition was one of the most anticipated events of the week, in part because the top teams have plenty of ties to Michigan. Hubbell was born in Michigan, and she and Donohue used to train there. Chock and Bates are from Michigan as well.

Those two teams now train in Montreal under the same coaches — with Hawayek and Baker there as well.

“We’re pretty lucky that we get to train with the best in the world,” Donohue said. “We’re pushing each other. … We’ve got such a unique, incredible atmosphere where we all love each other, we all want to beat each other.”

The women’s competition was without several big names, with Karen Chen, Mirai Nagasu and Gracie Gold all missing it for various reasons. Now Liu looks like she could provide a boost for American figure skating. The U.S. hasn’t won an Olympic medal in women’s figure skating since 2006.

“To handle the pressure like she did, and to push the technical envelope as far as she’s pushing it, at such a young age, is truly mind blowing,” Lipinski said. “I think she’s the future of U.S. ladies’ figure skating.”

The U.S. nationals are being held in Detroit for the first time in 25 years. The 1994 event is best remembered for the attack on Nancy Kerrigan after a practice, but there was a 13-year-old who shined that year too — Michelle Kwan, who finished second.

The 4-foot, 7-inch Liu had already turned heads in August, when she became the youngest woman to land a triple axel in international competition. On Friday, she showed poise and ability on a big stage, although international stardom may have to wait a bit. Under the current age restriction, she’s not even eligible to compete at worlds until 2022.

“I’m not too worried about that part,” Liu said. “Because I get more time to work on my jumps, skating skills, spins, and just trying to learn more.”

Liu received a score of 217.51. Tennell finished second at 213.59, and Mariah Bell was third. Bell was the only skater left after Liu, and she fell during her routine.

Tennell stepped out of a triple loop in a combination early in her program, and she fell attempting a triple lutz.

“Obviously, it wasn’t my best skate, and I’m disappointed,” Tennell said. “There’s always something to be learned from skates like this, so I’m excited to get back home and work harder than ever to fix what I made mistakes on.”

Peter Duffey, the head of the Canadian Air Traffic Control Association said it all started when employees at Edmonton’s control center had the idea to buy the pizza for controllers in Anchorage, Alaska on Thursday. And as word got out, many other facilities across Canada decided to join in on the act of solidarity.

“The next thing we knew, our members were buying pizzas left, right and center for the colleagues in the U.S,” Duffey said to the Associated Press. “As it stands right now, I believe we’re up to 36 facilities that have received pizza from Canada, and that number is growing by the hour.”

Duffey believes that by Sunday afternoon, an estimated 300 pizzas had been sent by union members who were looking for a way to support their American colleagues, who then took to social media to thank them.

“Air traffic control is a very stressful job,” Duffey said to the AP. “They say you have to be 100 percent right, 100 percent of the time. People just don’t need to be reporting to work with the added stress of worrying about how to pay their mortgages and grocery bills on top of it.”

The Winemakers and Champagne Houses Making Their Mark With U.S. Consumers Ahead of New Year’s Eve

Thanksgiving is all but a distant memory now. Black Friday and Cyber Monday, just fleeting moments as we make the usual motions through the holiday shopping season.

Amid all the consumerism is (sometimes) some yuletide fun, often shepherded by warm spirits, mulled wines, and–of course–bubbly bottles of Champagne.

Always an easy gift for a host or hostess at a holiday party, there are many new options for U.S. consumers to consider as a number of smaller (as well as familiar) French houses have started to bring their trademark sparkling wines across the Atlantic.

Champagne Pommery Blanc de BlancsChampagne Pommery

Champagne

Champagne Pommery: Newly released, the Pommery Blanc de Blancs is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, sourced from the northern terrain of the Montagne de Reims and the hills of Nogent l’Abbesse. According to the winemakers, this particular terroir combination lends a special springlike freshness to the cuv?e. The bubbly offers subtle floral notes of jasmine as well as acacia, linden, and citrus fruit, notably fresh apple and yellow grapefruit. SRP: $ 67.

Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte’s signature One Fo(u)r bottles

Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte: Perhaps the most ready for your holiday f?tes that surely will end up on Instagram, Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte has a number of options to wow guests, starting with pint-sized Champagne bottles. (Maybe a bit gauche, but then again, no glassware that needs to be cleaned. Just toss in the recycle bin after). The single-serve bottles, in either the traditional Brut R?serve or Brut Ros?, also come with–wait for it–a wrist strap for making it easy to carry around the party. (Certainly solves the problem of where to put your drink while trying to eat at a cocktail party.)

For something a little more serious, but no less fun, are the 2018 Limited-Edition Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte “Enchanted Meadow” bottle with an elaborate holiday wonderland-inspired exterior as well as the very high-end Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte’s Palmes d’Or, one of the house’s finest crus aged for at least six years to advance the delicate flavor. SRP: $ 13 for the Signature One Fo(u)r 87-milliliter bottles; $ 36 for the Enchanted Meadow; $ 136-$ 200 for the Palmes d’Or.

Mo?t & Chandon ChampagneMo?t & Chandon

Mo?t & Chandon: As one of the world’s largest wine producers, Mo?t & Chandon isn’t taking the holiday season off. The 149-year-old house is releasing a limited edition series of”Art-de-Vivre” bottles, featuring iconic Parisian elements such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre as well as images synonymous with the brand, like a champagne tower and the logo neck ties. SRP: $ 39.99 for the Mo?t Imp?rial Brut; $ 49.99 for the Mo?t Imp?rial Ros?; and $ 59.99 for the Mo?t Nectar Imp?rial Blanc, touted by the house to be “tropical, exciting, and daring” with flavors of pineapple and mango.

Luc Belaire
Luc Belaire Brut GoldLuc Belaire

Sparkling Wine

Luc Belaire: Crafted by a 5th- and 6th-generation father-and-son team at a 118-year-old house in Burgundy, Luc Belaire might not be able to implement the official “Champagne” label given its geographical location, but it does reside in the heart of one of the world’s most well-known and respected wine regions. Produced from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, Belaire Brut Gold is a versatile option as its winemakers tout it as ideal for pairing with nearly any menu. To get a better idea of what you’re working with, the Brut Gold, the latest addition to the Luc Belaire portfolio, sports a hint of stone fruits (pear and peach) and brioche with a dry finish. For the dosage, Luc Belaire uses organic sugar cane, which the company says offers more structure to the wine while leaning on a style popularized during the 1920s. SRP: $ 30-$ 35.

Frank Family NV Brut RoseFrank Family Vineyards

Frank Family Vineyards: For something also outside of the traditional Champagne region but inspired by the style all the same is Frank Family Vineyards in California’s Napa Valley. The 2014 Sparkling Brut Ros?, a blend of 88% Pinot Noir grapes and 12% Chardonnay, is made in the traditional French method in which the secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle. The wine is then rested on the spent yeast cells for two and a half years before disgorgement. Almost millennial pink to its core, the Brut Ros? will likely impress oenophiles of any age or experience with wine thanks to its balanced palate of summery, fruit flavors (namely strawberry sherbert, orange peel, and red cherry) with a number of toasty and creamy nuances. SRP: $ 55.

“Prosecco Pie” by Ruffino and the Little Pie CompanyThe Little Pie Company

Something Extra…

Prosecco Pie: Not everyone is a sparkling wine lover. But what if I told you that you could consume sparkling wine–namely a very familiar Italian varietal–in…pie form? For over 33 years, Manhattan’s The Little Pie has gained a cult following–including with some familiar names like Oprah and Sarah Jessica Parker. This holiday season, The Little Pie Company collaborated with Tuscan wine producer Ruffino to produce a seasonal pie inspired by the apple and citrus flavors in the Italian winemaker’s signature Prosecco. The real star here is the topping to the pie rather than the filling itself, with strands of salted caramel criss-crossing a bed of brown sugar and warm apples. The pies are available in 5-inch and 10-inch sizes–the former of which comes with, naturally, a mini bottle of Ruffino Prosecco. SRP: $ 9.50 for the 5-inch version and $ 45 for the full-sized pie, plus shipping for delivery nationwide.
