Jorge Uzon and Maggy Donaldson (Agence France-Presse) (The Jakarta Post) PREMIUM Buffalo, United States ● Tue, May 17 2022 Grieving Buffalo residents in the United States held vigils Sunday after a white gunman who officials have branded "pure evil" shot dead 10 people at a grocery store in a "racist" rampage. The police commissioner for the US city in western New York, Joseph Gramaglia, told reporters the 18-year-old suspect did "reconnaissance" on the predominantly black area surrounding Tops Friendly Market and drove there from his hometown of Conklin, more than 322 kilometers away. Wearing heavy body armor and wielding an AR-15 assault rifle, the shooter killed 10 people and wounded three others, almost all of them black, before threatening to turn the gun on himself. Police said officers talked the gunman down before arresting him. to Read Full Story SUBSCRIBE NOW Starting from IDR 55,500/month Unlimited access to our web and app content … [Read more...] about US in mourning, outraged after ‘racist’ mass shooting
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin More than eighty percent of eligible voters turned out for the Philippines Presidential Election, and it looks a landslide victory for Ferdinand (Bongbong) Marcos Jr. While they are finishing the vote count, several media critics are already trying to punch holes in Bongbong’s stunning landslide victory. Some have pointed to the excesses of his father’s regime (of 36 years ago), while others have targeted his 92-year-old mother (Imelda). Some allege a closer friendship to China, but few have spent time examining the erosion of Philippine love for America – an important analysis for a former USA colony - where the average citizens really do love America. In bygone days, Capitol Hill pushed for closer ties with Manila but, sadly, the former pro-Philippine hawks have long since vacated the building. With Bongbong now on the rise, the U.S. Government is taking a fresh look at ways to improve the relationship. As everyone … [Read more...] about Retail’s Worry: As Philippines Trade Ramps Up – Will Bongbong Marcos Question America’s Love?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Neiman Marcus filed for C hapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week, and a lot of the blame was (rightly) put on the upscale retailer’s massive debt load though the Coronavirus was cited as the cause as well. But, another issue must be raised: Neiman Marcus long struggled to attract millennial and Gen Z consumers. Courting these two groups is key to any longstanding retailer’s existence. So how exactly did the Dallas-based retailer—more synonymous with lifestyle excess than today’s “woke” generation—fall short? Beth Goldstein, an industry analyst at the NPD Group, says Neiman Marcus isn’t alone. “Most department stores today have this challenge, especially at the high-end. Gen Z and Millennials are driven to specialty retailers and direct-to-consumer channels, both in-store and online,” she says, adding, “New brands born online offer great stories about function, sustainability, and convenience which captured their … [Read more...] about Neiman Marcus Needs To Court The Millennial And Gen Z Customer.

- A + A NEW YORK/BENGALURU (May 16): Wall Street's main indexes fell on Monday, as downbeat data out of China added to worries about a global economic slowdown against the backdrop of aggressive policy tightening by the US Federal Reserve. Chinese and European stock markets fell, while oil slid as data showed China's economic activity cooled sharply in April as Covid-19 lockdowns took a heavy toll on consumption, industrial production and employment.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Block 16 Urban Food Hall at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Photo: Jeff Green / Courtesy of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas When the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opened in 2010, it became the hotel for the well-heeled crowd. Dark interiors with purple accents gave the hotel a seductive vibe, only further driven home by the lobby’s 15-foot digital art columns that often showed silhouettes of unclothed women. Majority of its spacious rooms were outfitted with balconies, an unparalleled offering to this day. And its Chandelier lounge, draped in illuminated beads, was where you went to see and be seen. Over the past year, the property has undergone some changes, adding in ultra-exclusive penthouses for their high rollers; switching up their stores to include Sin City–appropriate necessities like Drybar and Reviv; and revamping their food and beverage program to include New York City and Los Angeles favorites like Momofuku … [Read more...] about Inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’s Impressive Block 16 Urban Food Hall
The Cincinnati Reds threw a combined no-hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates and still lost Sunday, the equivalent of winning the lottery and losing your ticket in the wash. It will go down as a quirk of history , one of only six games in which a team lost while throwing eight or more no-hit innings. The 10,559 fans who witnessed the feat at PNC Park will never forget watching the lowly Pirates win a game without a single hit. Unfortunately, it won’t go down as an official no-hitter thanks to former Commissioner Fay Vincent and the eight-man committee he chaired in 1991 that changed the definition. “The committee was there, really, to clean up any ambiguities that would come up under the rules of the definitions that existed,” Vincent later told the Sporting News. Ambiguities? The term was pretty clear. A pitcher or team that allows no hits should be credited with throwing a no-hitter, right? But this was 1991, when baseball was still operating under the presumption … [Read more...] about Column: MLB needs to change the definition of a no-hitter and reward the Cincinnati Reds pitchers for making history
