It was the decade post-WWI when the first big women’s movement began, and the clothing reflected this social movement.“Women in the twenties is definitely a transformative time,” said Adriana Solis, a senior fashion merchandising major at TCU. “The flappers that came out of the twenties were seen by some as the first independent American women to come out of American culture.”Solis added that the flappers helped in shifting cultural norms for women by focusing on themselves and their independence. They began to pull away from the caregiver role and sought a more adventurous lifestyle. “They didn’t care to fit this ideal, perfect role,” Solis said.Solis, along with her partner Kimberly Olmos, a senior fashion merchandising major at TCU, have been researching women in the ‘20s as a part of a TCU special problems course for fashion merchandising majors. They used what they learned about women in the ‘20s to set up a mini exhibit using original clothes from the era.TCU has a collection of clothes that range from the ‘20s to the ‘90s. The department of fashion merchandising at TCU has been collecting the clothes since the ‘80s. Professor Stephanie Bailey, who teaches Solis and Olmos’s special problems class, said she is hoping to take the collection to the next level by acquiring more specific items that are iconic to the various time periods. The clothes are kept in a temperature and humidity-controlled space for preservation.A Staple to ’20s Fashion: fur coatsThe coat is from the ’20s and is most likely made of beaver fur.The coat is from the ’20s and is most likely made of beaver fur.Beaded dresses designed with a tubular silhouette were popular in the ’20s.Beaded dresses designed with a tubular silhouette were popular in the ’20s.The coat is from the ’20s and is made of raccoon fur.The coat is from the ’20s and is made of raccoon fur.Item 1 of 3The coat is from the ’20s and is most likely made of beaver fur.The coat is from the ’20s and is most likely made of beaver fur.Beaded dresses designed with a tubular silhouette were popular in the ’20s.Beaded dresses designed with a tubular silhouette were popular in the ’20s.The coat is from the ’20s and is made of raccoon fur.The coat is from the ’20s and is made of raccoon fur.One of the more unique pieces in the collection is a fur coat made from the fur of a monkey, said Bailey. “Coats were really big in the ‘20s,” said Bailey. “Definitely a way that you showed who you were and what you have.”The display set up by Solis and Olmos also includes a coat made from raccoon fur and another out of what they believe is beaver fur. Many donated pieces are missing the tags, so there is no way to indicate the exact era the piece came from or what it is made of. Solis said they rely on their knowledge of fashion to determine what era unlabeled pieces came from. They look at the fabric, construction details and trends of the era to determine this.The ‘20s was also the start of people buying their own cars. It was popular for people to joy ride with their windows down. In the winter, women would sport their fur coats as a sign of wealth.While fashion trends and staples for the current decade of the ‘20s have not been fully defined yet, Bailey said fashion trends could depend on how politics play out in the coming months. “Generally, I think when we come out of a really turbulent time and we’re looking for everybody kind of having a more equal playing field, then we tend to wear stuff that’s more similar [to the fashion of the 1920’s],” she said.’20’s Glitz & Glam: sequins, fringe and accessoriesThe display showcases the tubular silhouette and a popular accessory of the time hats. The tubular silhouette was popular in the ‘20s as women shifted away from wearing restrictive clothes and corsets and began to embrace the loose, free flowing silhouette. Additionally, with almost every outfit, women would wear an elaborate accessory on their head, said Solis.“We’re kind of in the fourth wave of the women’s movement,” said Olmos. Women in the 1920s began to break away from tradition by embracing the tubular silhouette and wearing shorter dresses. Similarly, today, women are not trying to fit into what society deems as the “ideal body type,” Olmos said.Bright sequins and bedazzled dresses were also common in the ‘20s. Along with fur coats, sequined dresses were a way to show wealth.Even though the rhinestones and glitzy clothes are not as popular today, people are interested in more luxury items that show their wealth and status, said Olmos. Many clothes today are made with visible logos that help people make their fashion statement. This trend, “Logomania,” is comparable to the way people used fashion to show their status in the 1920s.Haeven Gibbons is the Editor-in-Chief of Image Magazine.

The Syrian authorities must reveal the fate of Mazen Darwish and SCM staff

first_img News SyriaMiddle East – North Africa to go further The undersigning organizations express their grave concerns for the safety of Mr. Mazen Darwish, Head of the Damascus based Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM) and seven of his colleagues, arrested by Air Force Intelligence members on February 16, 2012 during a raid on their Damascus offices. According to a trustworthy source within Syria, Mr. Darwish has been subjected to torture and other ill-treatment during his interrogation and imprisonment in the same premises. We have reasons to believe that his life is in danger, especially as Mazen Darwish faces serious previous health issues that require medical treatment and worsen his condition.Mazen Darwish was arrested along with 15 other persons during the February 16 raid. Seven women detained were conditionally released in the following 48 hours, but have to report to the detention center every day for further interrogations. Mr. Shady Yazbek, a visitor to the SCM arrested along with the staff during the raid, was released on March 12, 2012. No charges have been pressed against them so far.Since their detention almost a month ago, Mr. Mazen Darwish and eight other men have been held in incommunicado detention at the Air Force Intelligence detention center located in El Mezzeh, Damascus. They have no access to any of their colleagues, family members or their lawyers and so far no official charges have been pressed against them.The undersigned organizations are gravely concerned about the fate of the persons who remain in detention following the raid on SCM office and repeat their call to Syrian authorities to unconditionally release those detained as the detention is apparently related to their peaceful activities as human right defenders, bloggers and journalists. Besides Mr. Mazen Darwish, detained SCM staff members include Mr. Hani Zetani, Mr. Abdelrahman Hamada, Mr. Hussein Ghareer, Mr. Mansour Al-Omari, Mr. Joan Farso, Mr. Ayham Ghazoul and Mr. Bassam Al-Ahmad.The undersigned groups have documented systematic and widespread torture by Syria’s security services against detainees since the beginning of the unrest in the country. According to the Violations Documentation Center, a Syrian network of activists, at least 386 detainees died in custody since the start of the uprising on March 15, 2011.The undersigned organizations reiterate that the Syrian authorities are responsible and accountable under international law for guaranteeing the physical and mental integrity of all detainees, including Mr. Mazen Darwish and his colleagues. Furthermore, the Syrian authorities must put an immediate end to arbitrary arrests and harassment of human rights defenders, including those advocating for freedom of expression, journalists, and bloggers. The authorities must release all persons who remain arbitrarily detained.

Blackfoot Communications Is Expanding Its Home and Business Service Coverage

PUB: 02/03/2021 01:00 PM/DISC: 02/03/2021 01:01 PM http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005721/en Facebook WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter MISSOULA, Mont.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Blackfoot Communications today announced plans for bringing fiber-based broadband internet services to portions of Western Montana, including areas around Georgetown Lake, the far southern portions of the Bitterroot Valley, the Highway 12 corridor west of Lolo and the Swan Valley. “We are thrilled to be bringing fast, reliable, high-speed internet access to portions of Montana that have never had it before,” said Jason Williams, Blackfoot’s CEO. “This project will ensure that schools and communities to homes and businesses in these areas will have the fastest and most reliable internet service for decades to come.” Blackfoot was a successful bidder in the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (“RDOF”) auction administered by the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) late last year. The RDOF program awarded billions of dollars to hundreds of companies across the country who have committed to provide broadband internet access services to customers that are currently unserved or have poor, low-speed internet service. The reverse auction allowed broadband carriers to bid for these funds, with winning bidders promising to deliver broadband and voice services to abandoned service areas. Blackfoot’s receipt of RDOF-related funds is contingent upon the FCC approving Blackfoot’s final network build-out plan proposal. Blackfoot’s current plans include:Providing gigabit speed broadband service in the Georgetown Lake area beginning in late 2022Areas of the southern Bitterroot Valley will see Blackfoot services beginning in late 2023The Highway 12 corridor west of Lolo and the Swan Valley will have services beginning in 2025 and 2026 “Building these networks is a massive undertaking, and our long Montana winters and rough terrain make plowing fiber difficult,” Williams said. “Even though some of these areas won’t see our service for 4 or 5 years, I want people to know that we are coming and that we will do everything we can to get you connected to our fiber network as soon as we can.” In 2016, Blackfoot began an extensive multi-year network upgrade project to replace portions of its network with fiber optics across its cooperative service areas. To date, Blackfoot has plowed thousands of fiber drops to customer locations and has converted hundreds of customers to its fiber-based broadband services. “Broadband plays a critical role in each of our lives, and nowhere is that truer than here in Montana,” said Laura Maedche, Blackfoot’s Customer Operations Manager. “Our construction teams have been hard at work over the past 4 years installing new fiber across Northwestern Montana, allowing our communities to benefit from reliable and fast broadband services. We can’t wait for even more Montanans to experience our Home WiFi and Business services.” Where to find additional information:Blackfoot Communications, Network Upgrade Program: https://blackfootcommunications.com/networkupgrades/FCC, Rural Digital Opportunity Fund: www.fcc.gov/implementing-rural-digital-opportunity-fund-rdof-auctionFCC, Rural Digital Opportunity Fund Phase 1 results: www.fcc.gov/reports-research/maps/rdof-phase-i-dec-2020/Blackfoot Communications: www.blackfootcommunications.com Local NewsBusiness TAGS  Blackfoot Communications Is Expanding Its Home and Business Service Coverage Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Previous articleOAT020321_Ratliff_Vaccine_JF_03Next articleVMG Health Acquires Health Care Futures, a Business Strategy and Consulting Firm Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

Stores are restocking, so should you stock up?

first_imgiStock/Kwangmoozaa(NEW YORK) — As Americans adjust to daily life amid the coronavirus health emergency, grocers and retailers have assured shoppers that supply will meet demand.Experts recommend against panic buying, but they do have tips on which essentials to keep on hand, how much you need and the safest way to procure them.Pantry staples, produce that can be frozen“All homes should be prepared with — but not hoard or stockpile — a sufficient amount of key household items and groceries in case they need to stay home for a period of time,” Dr. Chloë E. Nunneley, a resident in the ABC News medical unit, explained.“Your pantry should have a two- to four-week supply of a variety of foods you normally eat, including nonperishable items like grains, shelf-stable dairy and canned, jarred or frozen foods,” she suggested. “Fresh produce is good to include, keeping in mind that many fresh foods can also be frozen.”Prescription medications, over-the-counter products“If you take prescription medications, obtaining a new 30-day supply will help prevent running out of medication and overwhelming busy pharmacies later on,” Nunneley said. “Over-the-counter medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen are useful to have in case you become sick.”Avoiding crowded storesWhile it’s great to be prepared, another key component amid the current outbreak is to mitigate contact with other people so as to not transmit COVID-19.“Keep in mind that we are preparing in order to refrain from going to the store,” Nunneley added. “Our water supply shouldn’t be affected” so most people shouldn’t stockpile bottled water.‘No concern about running out of food’The National Grocers Association, which includes more than 8,500 U.S. stores, said, “There is absolutely no concern about running out of food.”NGA president and CEO Greg Ferrara said independent grocers are helping larger chains meet demand during this time, and that grocery stores are being restocked at unprecedented speeds.“The supply chain is fully operational, and supplies are flowing 24/7,” Ferrara explained. “Unfortunately, the demand in many markets has been unprecedented, and the supply chain is working to catch up, but stores are being restocked with fresh produce, meats, breads, canned goods — you name it — on a daily basis.”Products that sold out quickly, such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, “may be more limited in terms of availability but are flowing through the supply chain,” Ferrara added. “While our nation is facing a new crisis that we have not previously faced, it’s important for us all to remain calm.”Target, Kroger and Publix all told ABC News they’re working rapidly to replenish store shelves. In the meantime, some stores have set limits on the number of harder-to-find items each individual can purchase.Several stores also told ABC News that ample supplies exist in warehouses or are being produced in factories and that it’s more a matter of getting them delivered to retailers.Deliveries that used to happen twice a week are in some cases “being made once to twice a day,” said Rebecca Jarvis, ABC News’ chief business, technology and economics correspondent.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Coronavirus updates: Hunger due to COVID-19 killing 10,000 children per month

first_imgSamara Heisz/iStockBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The novel coronavirus pandemic has now killed more than 650,000 people worldwide.Over 16.3 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.The United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 4.2 million diagnosed cases and at least 147,791 deaths.Here is how the news is developing on Tuesday. All times Eastern:4:58 a.m.: Russia coronavirus cases pass 820,000Russia reported 5,395 new COVID-19 cases and 150 coronavirus-related deaths in the past 24 hours, according to the coronavirus response headquarters statement on Tuesday.“Over the past day, 5,395 cases of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus infections were confirmed in 84 regions of Russia, including 1,620 active asymptomatic cases (30.0%),” the headquarters said.Russia’s total case count currently stands at 823,515 and 13,504 coronavirus patients died.Moscow on Tuesday reported 674 new COVID-19 cases and 10 deaths.3:35 a.m.: COVID-19 linked hunger killing 10,000 children per month, says UNCOVID-19 and its ramifications are pushing children who already live in hunger to beyond the breaking point, killing an estimated 10,000 more youngsters a month as meager farms have no way of delivering produce to markets while villages are isolated from food and medical supplies, the United Nations has warned.Furthermore, more than 550,000 additional children each month are being struck by what is called wasting, which manifests in spindly limbs and distended bellies, according to the U.N.3:16 a.m.: Trump Jr. shares video of doctor claiming hydroxychloroquine is a cure for COVID-19Donald Trump Jr. shared a bizarre video on Twitter featuring what appears to be doctor that blasts the science and medical health experts recommendations about wearing masks and saying there are cures for COVID-19, including hydroxychloroquine.Trump Jr. says “This is a much watch!!! So different from the narrative that everyone is running with.”The doctor calls the science and studies against hydroxychloroquine fake studies and says they’re sponsored by big pharmaceutical companies.
