International Plaza to open Arhaus, a massive luxury furniture store

TAMPA — The pandemic has been especially hard on malls, but International Plaza is about to debut a shiny new 14,000-square-foot storefront.

Arhaus, a luxury furniture store, will open at International Plaza Friday. During the pandemic, a furniture store might be one of the safer bets in the retail arena. From Wayfair to Ikea, furniture and appliance orders have been on back order as those self-isolating in response to the pandemic makeover their homes or

A culture of responsibility: The promise of a safer digital world

Against the backdrop of an unprecedented year, we are all working to come to terms with the lessons that 2020 has brought. For a modern society that already lived much of its life online, this has meant shifting to even more reliance on technology — what it means to be connected, and what it means to be safe. The internet is how we are now working, spending time together socially during a health crisis, and

She’s IU grad, he played basketball at Notre Dame


Their love was born amid the chaos and fast-paced world of college sportscasting, she an Indiana University grad and he a former Notre Dame basketball player.

Jordan Cornette looked at Shae Peppler as he worked alongside her at Campus Insiders in 2014 and felt something strange and amazing. 

“I felt like I was looking at a much better looking, female version of me,” he said Tuesday, laughing. “I don’t know what that says about

Ludovic de Saint Sernin SS21 is a love letter to TikTok’s e-boys

Life online has always come as second nature to Ludovic de Saint Sernin. Across his eponymous brands’ two Instagram accounts — one being an, uhm, ‘intimate’ community-showcasing finsta — the Parisian designer engages his following with an endearing excitement and casual warmth that doubtless have large brands’ social media managers frantically taking notes. The lack of the cloying mock-friendliness that we all know too well from many labels’ socials accounts, though, owes little to any

Trump administration misses deadline on conservation projects, top Democrat says

The Trump administration has failed to meet a deadline to inform Congress about which projects should receive funding stemming from bipartisan conservation legislation that was signed into law earlier this year, a top Democratic lawmaker told The Hill.

The Great American Outdoors Act, enacted on Aug. 4, gave the Interior Department 90 days to prepare two lists of projects that would receive money under two separate conservation funds established by the legislation. Interior has failed

These tax breaks could help you deal with the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic and economy lockdown measures have changed many aspects of daily life, possibly permanently. No surprise there.

Less obvious are some of the tax breaks and other benefits that might help you deal with the pandemic. Programs and resources like stimulus payments have received a lot of media attention, but others aren’t so obvious.

More people are working at home, and that is a trend that likely will continue. But does this represent

Healthy sleep habits for children

DEAR MAYO CLINIC: My 9-year-old son has been having trouble sleeping ever since we began social distancing more due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While he goes to bed at a reasonable time, he doesn’t seem to fall asleep until after midnight and often comes into my room to tell me he cannot sleep. I am wondering if he has a sleep disorder. Do I need to take him to see a

Death Thaler……..

By Tyler Rossi for CoinWeek …..

It is impossible to make generalizations about the German States during the period after the Thirty Years’ War[1] because the country we now know as a single unified Germany was then comprised of almost three hundred principalities, ranging in size and strength from the large organized states of Prussia and Austria to the small free cities of Frankfurt and Aachen. This almost two-hundred-year period is called the

How to celebrate Thanksgiving during a pandemic

Q: Can we celebrate Thanksgiving safely this year during the pandemic?

A: Yes, but we’re all going to have to accept that this will be a different holiday season than we are used to. Unfortunately, cases of COVID-19 are increasing, not only in Hamilton County and Tennessee, but across the country and world. While there is optimism about a vaccine being available soon, it will not be widely available before the holidays. So we’re going

‘Amazon economy’ gives the left a mandate for bold economic reform

This week expect to see political pundits once again coalesce, based on a superficial reading of the electorate, around the narrative that the election results are a mandate for center-rightism, a cautionary tale against progressive aspirations for a dramatic reshaping of our market-based political economy.

That is a misreading of the public’s real appetite for government interventions that would make the economy more fair, reparative and sustainable, especially in the wake of the economic damage

Parents frazzled by unexpectedly being quarantined at home with kids during the work week — OK, sure, there’s dark humor in the memes, but the reality has increased stress and tension at home related to school closures, economic anxiety and job loss.

During the first month of stay-at-home orders during the pandemic, the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline reported a 23% increase in calls and a 263% increase in texts compared to March 2019. Here’s

Is Texas Turning Blue? – The Atlantic

“Donald Trump is a turnout and motivation machine for both Republicans and Democrats,” Henson said. “I think we saw that in 2018, and we’re seeing that now.”

Democrats have been hoping for Texas to become purple for decades—the state’s demographics are similar to California’s, but its white population is much more conservative, and its voting population less diverse than the state at large. Statewide, Latinos make up nearly 40 percent of the population but accounted

The Best Places to Buy Plants Online

Whether you’ve got a green or black thumb, plant parenthood can really induce zen — especially when you can’t step outside for a mood-boosting dose of nature. Though an oft-referenced NASA study on the air-cleaning benefits of houseplants has been debunked, other studies have proven that indoor greenery can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and encourage you to chill out. But if the idea of leaving the house isn’t exactly bringing calm, or there are

My Black Son Is Turning 12 This Year And I’m Terrified

How Wolf Blitzer and other news anchors are preparing for Election Day

We spoke to anchors about their routines and plans in preparation for Election Day. Here’s how they’re getting ready.

“I’ll spend an hour on the treadmill, have a very healthy breakfast, and there’s a few light bulbs I need to change around the house. And yes, I will trim my beard…”

JASE GRAVES: Elect to talk politics with the family | Columnists

I usually avoid discussing politics in my columns, mainly because I would rather not be disowned by family members, unfriended by friends, or doused with milkshakes and other beverages by complete strangers at the local Whataburger.

This time, though, I just can’t help getting out my big ol’ stir-up-sumpin’ stick.

I’ll begin by announcing that I recently cast (as in chucked, lobbed or hurled) my vote for President of the United States of ‘Merica. I
