“I’ve always been into fashion. Back then, I couldn’t afford what I wanted, now I can. It’s easier and I have more connections with brands,” Cardi told FN. “I could wear the most uncomfortable shoe and I’m just going to take it and love it because it’s fashion, it’s beauty, it’s amazing, it’s different. I get bored, so that’s when me and my stylist [Kollin Carter], we get creative and come up with something new and amazing.”

The Grammy winner has become one of the leading stars of the fashion industry over the last three years. With her breakout #1 single “Bodak Yellow” in 2017, she made the phrase “bloody shoes” synonymous with Christian Louboutin’s high-priced red bottom heels.

Fantasy Football Rankings Week 8, 2020: Model that beat experts says start Tee Higgins, sit Drew Brees

While Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson have been among the most dominant quarterbacks in recent years, Bills quarterback Josh Allen is quickly rising up the Fantasy football rankings each week. Allen enters Week 8 of the 2020 NFL season ranked fourth in passing yards (2,018) and passing touchdowns (16). He’s also found the end zone three times with his legs, which continues to make him one of the most popular Fantasy football picks.

Where will Allen land in the Week 8 Fantasy football rankings? The Bills host the New England Patriots in an AFC East battle on Sunday, a team that is 9-1 in its last 10 meetings against Buffalo but is reeling this season. Before you lock in your Fantasy football lineups, be sure to check out the latest Week 8 Fantasy football rankings from the advanced computer model at SportsLine.

When it comes to ranking players, their model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, saying he’d finish as the top-ranked player at his position. The result: Herbert completed 27 of 43 pass attempts for 347 yards and three touchdowns. He also had nine carries for 66 yards and another score. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.

Now, the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its Fantasy football rankings for Week 8 of the 2020 NFL season. Head to SportsLine now to see them. 

Top Fantasy football picks for Week 8

One player the model is extremely high on this week: Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. The rookie out of Clemson is coming off a strong showing against the Cleveland Browns last Sunday, catching all five of his targets for 71 yards and a touchdown. He’s now recorded 24 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns in his last five games and is expected to remain heavily involved in Cincinnati’s pass-heavy attack this week. 

Higgins will look to duplicate his recent success on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, who are giving up 272.0 yards per game through the air, which ranks 26th in the NFL. Last week against the Steelers, Tennessee yielded 80 receiving yards and two touchdowns to wide receiver Diontae Johnson, which bodes well for Higgins’ Fantasy potential in Week 8. SportsLine’s model is expecting Higgins to finish as a top-20 wideout this week, a rock-solid WR2.

And a massive shocker: Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who’s thrown multiple touchdown passes in three of his last four games, stumbles big-time and doesn’t even crack the top 20 at his position. Brees has been a consistent Fantasy threat over the years, but the 41-year-old appears to be showing signs of regression. In fact, Brees enters Week 8 averaging just 7.6 yards per

Aldi plans store at Barnes & Noble’s Kingsdale site

Aldi hopes to open a grocery store on the former Barnes & Noble site in Upper Arlington’s Kingsdale Shopping Center. 

The grocery chain submitted a proposal to the city for an 18,726-square-foot grocery store at 3280 Tremont Road in Kingsdale. 

The company plans to redevelop the site formerly occupied by Barnes & Noble, which closed over the summer, according to Upper Arlington senior planner Justin Milam.

Plans call for a 1-story building with 145 parking spaces. The store would employ 15 to 20 workers, according to a letter to the city’s Community Development Department from Ken White, an attorney involved in the project.

White said Aldi stores typically need 80 parking spaces, allowing neighboring CVS and Panera Bread to use the remaining 65 spaces. Aldi stores are typically open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., he said.

City officials said the project will be reviewed by the Upper Arlington Board of Zoning and Planning on Nov. 2. After a public hearing, the board could vote on the proposed final development plan Nov. 16.

“Aldi plans to construct an attractive store meeting the expectations of the surrounding community,” White wrote to the city. 

If approved, Aldi would be the second grocery at Kingsdale, following Giant Eagle.

In January 2015, Kroger Co. purchased the 105,422-square-foot Macy’s building and affiliated property at Kingsdale and announced plans to construct a grocery as part of a mixed-use development.

Kroger never moved forward on the development and Continental Continental Real Estate Cos. now intends to develop the site with apartments, senior living, offices, restaurants and structured parking, while leaving a placeholder for a possible community center.

Coach-owner Tapestry says women are paying more for their handbags during the pandemic

  • Tapestry, which owns the Kate Spade and Coach brands, said its revenue per handbag globally rose more than 25%, on average, during the fiscal first quarter.
  • Management explained that the gains were fueled largely by the handbag maker cutting back on promotions, thereby selling more items at higher price points.

Women are spending more money when they’re shopping for handbags during the coronavirus pandemic, Coach owner Tapestry’s latest quarterly results show.

And it could be, in part, because consumers are buying bigger, pricier bags to stow away bottles of hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes.

“I don’t know about you, but carrying around 20 pounds of Covid products in a small cross-body just isn’t going to work,” said Stacey Widlitz, head of SW Retail Advisors. “Big bags are back. … It’s about carrying your life in your bag.”

Tapestry, which also owns the Kate Spade brand, said Thursday its revenue per handbag globally rose more than 25%, on average, during the fiscal first quarter, which consisted of more than 20% growth in North America.

Management explained that the gains were fueled largely by the handbag maker cutting back on promotions, thereby selling more items at higher price points.

It also has been reducing its reliance on wholesale partners, like department stores, which in the past has been a drag on profits.

“We’re focused on driving [average unit revenue] by being close to our consumer and delivering products that our consumers value,” Chief Executive Joanne Crevoiserat told analysts.

Tapestry shares were up more than 9% in premarket trading.

Wedding and birthday party lead to 56 COVID-19 cases, nearly 300 quarantined

A wedding and birthday party in suburban New York turned into two COVID-19 “superspreader” events that infected more than 50 people and left nearly 300 in quarantine, officials said.

“This kind of blatant disregard for the well being of others is not only extremely disappointing, it will not be tolerated,” Suffolk County Executive Steven Bellone said at a news conference on Wednesday.

Bellone said the wedding held on Oct. 17 at North Fork Country Club in Cutchogue, Long Island, was in violation of the state’s rule on 50 people or less in a room. The venue was issued a $17,000 fine, officials said.

Out of the 91 attendees, 30 people later tested positive, consisting of 27 guests, two employees, and an outside vendor, Bellone said. Nearly 160 people had to quarantine as a result, he said.

North Fork Country Club did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

An adult birthday party of about 50 attendees in nearby Bellport, occurred that same day, Bellone said. While it did not violate emergency state health codes, Bellone said the event showcased how quickly the virus could spread with improper social distancing.

More than half of the guests, 26 people, tested positive for the coronavirus and 132 being forced to quarantine, he said.

Six school districts in Suffolk County have already been affected by the positive cases and associated risk of exposure, officials added.

The public health violations come two weeks after a sweet 16 “super-spreader” party at Miller Place Inn in Suffolk County was fined $12,000, Bellone said at the time. More than three dozen people who tested positive were linked to the event, including 28 students and nine adults, officials said.

Related:

As of Thursday morning, Suffolk County has reported nearly 50,000 confirmed cases and more than 2,000 deaths — one of the state’s hardest-hit COVID-19 counties and the 15th deadliest county in the country, according to Johns Hopkins’ COVID-19 dashboard.

Bellone added: “These kinds of superspreader events are a threat to our public health and to our continued economic recovery.”

“If you violate the rules, you’ll be caught and held responsible,” he said.

Christmas adverts will be scaled back this year as firms feeling the strain of the pandemic are projected to slash marketing budgets by £725million.

The annual festive blitz of promotions is set to be more muted as hard-hit retailers cut costs and brace for a slump in sales. 

Marks and Spencer has already scrapped its Christmas clothing adverts and have instead turned to online influencers to showcase their products.

Advertising spend in the fourth so-called Golden Quarter is expected to sag by 10.5 per cent to £6.2billion, according to the Advertising Association and Warc.

Looming lockdowns to tackle a resurgent virus has been blamed on the fall in advertising spend as retailers face reduced demand because of restrictions.

Cinema advertising is forecast to suffer the biggest slump of 66 per cent as the movie industry remains especially bruised by restrictions which closed cinemas and saw filming halted.

Radio advert spending will drop by 13 per cent, direct mail 12 per cent and TV 2 per cent, the AA predicts.

The analysis revealed total UK adspend is set to plunge 14.5 per cent this year to £21.5billion.

Stephen Woodford, chief executive of the AA, said: ‘These stark figures demonstrate the strain that all parts of the advertising ecosystem were under during the second quarter. 

‘Large parts of our industry and the wider economy were effectively shut down.’ 

M&S traditional Christmas TV ads will concentrate solely on food this year instead, with the first to appear in the coming weeks. 

The retailer is still planning to use influencers on social media to market clothing and homeware in the hope customers will shop online in the event of a lockdown over Christmas, according to Campaign.

Last year the company’s Christmas ad for clothing featured hip hop dancers in the store’s jumpers and pyjamas.

Sales for jumpers and pyjamas rose as a result but figures later showed that, overall, sales of clothing and homeware in the last three months of 2019 fell by 1.7 per cent.

It follows the onset of the Covid crisis, with more customers working from home, meaning demand for work-related wear has fallen since.

M&S announced in August that it is axing 7,000 jobs, with the bulk of cuts being made across its stores, hitting around 12 per cent of its 60,000 shop-based staff.

Lee Dong Wook Sends Sweet Gift To Set Of Im Siwan’s New Drama

Lee Dong Wook showed his support for Im Siwan!

Previously, the two actors worked together on the 2019 OCN drama “Strangers from Hell.”

Creative Discovery Museum gets $1 million Volkswagen gift for $10 million capital campaign

Volkswagen is giving $1 million to the Creative Discovery Museum’s capital campaign in one of the biggest gifts to the downtown Chattanooga attraction since it opened 25 years ago.

“That gift is a game-changer,” said Henry Schulson, the museum’s executive director. He said the donation helps put the museum on a path toward hitting its $10 million goal for the Ignite Discovery campaign.

Tom du Plessis, president and CEO of Volkswagen Chattanooga, said the museum is a staple in the community and has been committed to educating and inspiring children for the last two-and-a-half decades.

“We are proud to invest in their future, and look forward to collaborating on the creation of the STEMzone,” he said about a new exhibit where the money primarily will go to focus on science, technology, engineering and math.

The gift comes at a time when the museum, as other attractions, has had to limit attendance since reopening after the economic lock down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Schulson said the VW donation, the largest non-endowment gift to the museum since its opening, won’t be used for operating expenses. Rather, the museum official said, it will go to the capital effort that will finance renovations, updated and new exhibits, expanded outreach programs and a more vibrant urban space on its 321 Chestnut St. plaza.

He said the museum probably will lose between $800,000 to $1 million this year due to the pandemic.

“We’re going to take a financial hit this year,” Schulson said. He said the museum qualified for federal coronavirus-related aid and has a credit line along with an endowment, noting it has laid off about 44 part-time staffers.

“We’ll be able to get through this year,” Schulson said. “Looking to next year, the goal is a balanced budget or slight deficit. It will be very tight.”

With the VW gift, the museum is at $7.1 million in its capital campaign that kicked off in January but was suspended in March after the pandemic hit. The museum resumed the campaign in September, Schulson said.

He said the museum, which reopened in June, has seen a steady increase in attendance. During October, its numbers are at about 50% compared to the same month a year ago, Schulson said.

Schools are one area he doesn’t expect to see coming back soon, but the museum is doing outreach and developing a virtual initiative.

“It may take a year before schools come back to the museum,” Schulson said, even though the museum is undertaking rigorous cleaning during the day, requiring masks for visitors age 5 and above, and limiting attendance to about 20% of typical numbers.

“Eventually, we’ll get back to normal,” he said. “A lot depends on a vaccine and effective therapies to treat [the coronavirus].”

His sense, Schulson said, is that the museum “won’t get fully back next year.”

However, concerning renovations and updates, the museum is

Thailand protesters take to street to mock fashion show

BANGKOK (AP) — Pro-democracy demonstrators in Thailand returned Thursday to the capital’s business district, staging something akin to a street fair to bring attention to their contention that the country’s monarchy holds too much power and influence.

Their rally on the city’s Silom Road was billed as a sort of counterpoint to a fashion show being held Thursday evening by Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, a daughter of King Maha Vajiralongkorn.

The princess is a fashion designer and has several shops at malls and shopping arcades in Bangkok selling her luxury goods.


A large crowd that gathered after working hours took over a portion of the street, looking at a displays of artwork and posters, serious and satirical, and listening to mostly impromptu speeches.

Sarcasm and satire have played a major role in recent protests, as was the case again Thursday as a red carpet was unrolled on the street to serve as a fashion runway for men and women to vamp in front of an amused crowd.

The student-led protesters have been holding rallies almost every day, attracting crowds on short notice that sometimes exceed 10,000.

They want Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha to step down, the constitution to be amended to make it more democratic, and reforms to make the monarchy’s activities more transparent and accountable.

Prayuth first became prime minister in a military government after staging a coup as army commander in 2014, and continued in office last year after a general election held under a new constitution and other laws enacted during military rule to disadvantage existing political parties.

Prayuth has said he will not leave the job under pressure, but his government has indicated it is amenable to have Parliament consider amending the constitution.

The protest movement also charges that King Vajiralongkorn wields an inordinate amount of power in what is nominally a democracy under a constitutional monarchy. The palace controls a fortune that is estimated to be at least $40 billion, making it the world’s richest royal family.

The monarchy has long been considered an untouchable institution, revered by a large part of the population and protected by a lese majeste law that mandates a three-to-15-year prison term for anyone found guilty of defaming the monarch and his immediate family.

The criticism of the royal institution by the protest leaders, low-key at first but now increasingly outspoken, has stunned many Thais, since the subject has long been one not discussed in public.

On Tuesday, protesters rallied outside the German Embassy to present a letter to the ambassador asking his government to investigate whether King Vajiralongkorn is carrying out political activities during his frequent visits to Germany.

Thai royalists have recently been holding counter-demonstrations, but so far they have lacked the numbers and enthusiasm of the pro-democracy activists.

King Vajiralongkorn in the past week has made several unusual public appearances, walking along with Queen Suthida and other members of his family to greet crowds of faithful monarchists who gathered to see him. These events have been captured on
