    In 1994, Oprah asked the world’s top designers what they thought the world would be sporting in the year 2000? Surprisingly, many answered with some environmentally sound designs. Source: OWN/Youtube In a quirky, very 90s video, Oprah asks, “What is a girl to wear in the year 2000?” Oprah asked top fashion designers at the time to predict what they thought people would be wearing in the new millennium. Although most are a bit off, they were pretty off, the responses are pretty funny and some are very eco-conscious! “No, it’s not the land of Oz,” says Oprah as she jumps around in a long coat with long fringes around the neck and arms. “It’s designer Issey Miyake and he says that in the year 2000 we’ll be wearing clothes made out of material we never even imagined. Like this outfit, it’s made out of straw!” Miyake was right, we have clothing now made from materials that we could have never thought of back then. There’s apple leather, mushroom leather, and upcycled clothing. However, now also 60 percent...
    Joe Raedle/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump endorsed Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance Friday evening in a statement in which he acknowledged the HillBilly Elegy author said “some not so great things about me” in the past. In a crowded primary, Trump chose Vance over candidates who had been loyal to him from the beginning, whereas Vance voted for Evan McMullin in 2016. “In the Great State of Ohio, the candidate most qualified and ready to win in November is J.D. Vance,” Trump said in an email message. “We cannot play games. It is all about winning!” The former president continued: Like some others, J.D. Vance may have said some not so great things about me in the past, but he gets it now, and I have seen that in spades. He is our best chance for victory in what could be a very tough race. The Democrats will be spending many millions of dollars, but the good news is that they have a defective candidate who ran for President and garnered exactly zero percent in the polls. The bottom...
    Former President Donald Trump has officially endorsed J.D. Vance in the Republican primary in the Ohio Senate race. The Hillbilly Elegy authored earned the prized endorsement in a crowded field in what is expected to be a hotly contested race in November. In a statement on Friday, Trump said: 'MAGA patriots from across the nation are set to deliver an election landslide for Republicans that will serve as a devastating rebuke of the failures of Joe Biden and the Radical Left Democrats.  'In the Great State of Ohio, the candidate most qualified and ready to win in November is J.D. Vance. We cannot play games. It is all about winning! 'Like some others, J.D. Vance may have said some not so great things about me in the past, but he gets it now, and I have seen that in spades.

    Horses are beautiful, powerful, and majestic creatures. And sadly, they’re often subjected to abuse at the hands of humans. The racing industry exploits horses for the sole purpose of “entertainment,” and others are subjected to a life of work involving pulling carriages through city streets or being used as a source of entertainment at children’s birthday parties. Even wild horses are exploited by being rounded up and forced into holding facilities where they’re often sold for slaughter. Horses also fall victim to unintentional abuse when people purchase or adopt them without fully understanding the amount of time and expenses involved in caring for them. When horses are no longer of use or someone can no longer afford their care, they’re often sent to auction where they can be purchased for further use or shipped off for slaughter. Some might end up in loving homes or placed with a sanctuary, but for the majority of these highly intelligent and emotional creatures, that isn’t the case. With a staggering number of horses being relinquished and sent to auction every year, those who...

Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Goff admitted that there is still some “sourness” over the way his tenure with the Rams ended. But that won’t be the focus once it’s time for kickoff at SoFi Stadium. “It’ll be fun to see all those people and it’ll be fun to be there and of course you’re motivated,” Goff said in his press conference. “Of course you have the chip on your shoulder — I’ve spoken about that. There was some disrespect felt toward the end. There was some sourness toward the end. And you still feel that, you still have that chip on...
    In an exchange Friday with Fox News host Jesse Watters, talk show host Jason Rantz insisted that Seattle isn’t bluffing about firing thousands of unvaccinated first responders like police officers and firefighters. WATCH: “There is no way, Jason, that this liberal mayor or this liberal governor are going to follow through with the threats to get rid of these workers, these police officers and firefighters and nurses. There is no way they could look their own voters in the eyes and say, ‘yes, we’re going to lay off hundreds and hundreds of police and firefighters, EMTs in this situation like this.’ There’s no way this is going to happen” Watters said on “Fox New Primetime.” “I hope you’re right. But the fact of the matters is the  officers, firefighters, EMTs have already received their termination notices. Some are already clearing out lockers,” Rantz said. (RELATED: Immigrants Will Need To Be Vaccinated To Apply For Benefits) Watters insisted the city was just issuing a bluff. “We don’t live in a country like that where you’re just going to get rid...
    Former President Trump blasted members of his own party on Saturday, demanding that Congressional Republicans show some 'spine' as he unleashed his anger after they allowed President Biden more time to raise the debt ceiling. In front of thousands of adoring fans at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, he delivered a greatest hits show.  He attacked Biden's spending plans as a 'socialist calamity' that would unleash stagflation, boasted that he never conceded the 2020 election but directed his biggest blast of anger at Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell for working with Democrats to lift the debt ceiling. 'Congressional Republicans must stay strong. This isn't the time for Republicans to fold, to walk away, to quit, to be afraid,' he said. 'Whatever happens, happens. Don't worry about being impeached, don't worry about anything... 'But they just don't seem to have the spine some of them.' Last week 11 Republican senators voted with Democrats to suspend the filibuster, effectively allowing them more time to stave off a looming debt default. 'They can now have two more months to work out how to screw...
    Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that some congressional Republicans did not care about their voters’ lives because they are fighting COVID vaccine mandates by using rhetoric like the “Gestapo is going to show up at your door and take your Bible away.” Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: I want to go to vaccines. This is also a national security threat, the health of the American public. The president issued this sweeping vaccine mandate because he’s frustrated 80 million Americans haven’t gotten that shot in the arm yet, and- and COVID is spiking again. He said he’s doing this because Republican governors have been cavalier with their constituents, particularly kids. Doesn’t he have a point? KINZINGER: Oh, I do, I think he has a point. Look, I don’t know if all of his mandates will hold up in court. There’s constitutional questions on some of it. I’ll leave that to lawyers because I really don’t know, but I think it’s going to save lives and- and the failure here comes in leaders that have basically...
    OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has admitted some of Manchester United's player are 'not sure' about getting Covid jabs. The United boss intends to hold a session with the squad to inform them about the importance of being vaccinated. 2Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hold a session with his players discussing the Covid jabCredit: PA Solskjaer said: "Yeah, we've informed them and some of them are already fully vaccinated, some are not sure.

    The Internet has become one of the most outstanding inventions of the last century, and the digital revolution to not have a ceiling right now. Today it is almost impossible to talk to someone who does not have access to the network, and it is that for a few years, the amount of information, resources, curiosities and a long list of things, we can find them thanks at a single click and from the living room of our house. The origins of the internet date back to the 1960s when the United States military created, in the middle of the Cold War, a hidden service to have its own communications network. Faced with a hypothetical Russian attack, the Americans wanted to ensure that they had the maximum military information on the network, creating in 1969 the well-known first network, Arpanet. It was rudimentary: four computers connected to different universities in the country. In two years there were already 40 computers, and the Internet explosion was in the making. Throughout all this time, the network has grown exponentially to what we...
    Dysfunction between the Trump White House and campaign and the Republican National Committee ran so deep that some RNC staff openly talked about not voting for President Donald Trump as the 2020 election neared.  Fox News published excerpts Tuesday of Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender's forthcoming book Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost that exposes the complicated dynamic between Trump's inner circle and the RNC.  Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner had a blunt assessment of the Republican Party's political arm telling Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel that he didn't 'give a f**k' about the future of the GOP in one heated conversation over an online fundraising platform.  Former President Donald Trump is photographed in New York City on July 4th. A new book claims that some staffers at the Republican National Committee didn't vote for Trump in the 2020 presidential election  Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender's new tome also captures a fight between Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner (left) and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel (right) in which Kushner said he...
    Casey Kasem's daughter has said she hopes to 'ruffle some feathers' with a new podcast about her father's controversial death and the bitter legal battles with his widow. Kerri Kasem, 48, told Fox News she is still hoping for her 'day in court' over the radio legend's death as she denied accusations that she and her siblings filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Casey's wife Jean Kasem because they were 'in it for the money.' 'All we wanted was to see our father… I don't care where the money goes,' she said. Kerri is the executive producer of a new Audible series called 'Bitter Blood: Kasem vs. Kasem' which promises to bring never-before-seen evidence and testimony from family friends and medical staff speaking about the circumstances surrounding Casey's death.  Kerri and her siblings accused Jean of causing their father's 2014 death aged 82 by mistreating him and refusing to allow them to see him. However, Jean claimed the kids wanted to get their hands on his wealth after he cut them off financially when they turned to Scientology.  She countersued and the two...
    (CNN)Today the American flag turns 244, but it doesn't look a day over 200. Here are some fun facts and common misconceptions about the iconic emblem. Betsy Ross is a phonyBetsy Ross is considered an American hero, known for creating the American flag.The story says that she lobbied Gen. George Washington to change the design, giving us the historic mock-up we've come to know and love. The truth is there is ZERO proof that this ever happened, although it is taught to elementary school children as history. Ross is more in line with American mythic legends Paul Bunyan and Johnny Appleseed than historic figures like Clara Barton or Benjamin Franklin.Read MoreMarc Leepson, author of "Old Glory, Flag: An American Biography," wrote, "Every historical study has come to the same conclusion. There's no good historical evidence that she did. But that doesn't mean she didn't. There's simply a lack of documentation. Most historians believe the story is apocryphal."President Woodrow Wilson, in a ceremony recognizing the first national observance of Flag Day, was asked about his thoughts on Ross.He replied, "Would that...
    Actor Seth Rogen has taken issue with comedians who are opposed to cancel culture, saying that cancel culture is “not worth complaining about” and that comedians need to accept that some jokes “age terribly.” Seth Rogen made the comments during an interview on Good Morning Britain, according to multiple reports. At one point, the conversation turned to cancel culture and comedians who are facing criticism for past jokes. “There are certain jokes that for sure have not aged well, but I think that’s the nature of comedy,” Rogen reportedly said. “I think conceptually those movies are sound, and I think there’s a reason they’ve lasted as far as people still watching and enjoying them today. Jokes are not things that necessarily are built to last.” He added: “To me when I see comedians complaining about this kind of thing, I don’t understand what they’re complaining about. If you’ve made a joke that’s aged terribly, accept it. And if you don’t think it’s aged terribly, then say that.” A growing number of prominent comedians are speaking out against cancel culture and...
    Congrats! You’ve decided you’re ready to share your life with an animal. Get ready for one of the most rewarding experiences on the planet. There is nothing else like having a non-human companion to share life’s ups and downs with. When bringing a pet into your family, we cannot stress how important it is to adopt. Every day, perfectly healthy animals are euthanized to create more room in shelters and purchasing from breeders gives homeless animals less opportunity to have a home. Pet stores are possibly the worst place to get an animal, as the animals are obtained through horrible, abusive conditions. If you love animals, adopting from a rescue or animal shelter is the best option. Now that you’ve made the decision to adopt, you have many things to consider and prepare for. While rewarding, taking care of an animal is challenging and can be stressful at times. The more you understand about living with a pet, the less stressful it will be. Keep all these things in mind to make life great for you and your pet....
    Last week’s announcement that Elon Musk will guest host the May 8th installment of Saturday Night Live elated fans of the tech tycoon and second richest man in the world, but the reaction among some castmembers has been less than enthusiastic. Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is ???? — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 25, 2021 On Saturday, Musk tweeted, “Let’s find out how live Saturday night really is,” which elicited puzzlement in castmember Bowen Yang. “What the f*ck does that even mean?” Yang wondered in an Instagram story (according to CNBC). Meanwhile, shortly after news broke that Musk would be guest-hosting, castmember Aidy Bryant shared a tweet from Bernie Sanders from last March noting that the 50 wealthiest Americans have more wealth than the bottom 165 million. It is estimated that Musk, a native-born South African who became a U.S. citizen in 2002, has a net worth estimated at $187 billion as of this writing. Andrew Dismukes also made a subtle dig at the choice on Instagram, where he posted a story featuring...
    Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) posted a tweet Friday afternoon that normally would have flown far under the radar, if not for what some of his fellow Republicans had done just a few hours before. That Americans are “all created equal” and “the Republican Party is the party of Lincoln” are hardly newsbreaking statements, but when a group of Republican members of Congress sets up a new caucus that’s immediately criticized as pandering to nativism and racism, well, it’s a little different. On Friday, the newly-launched “America First Caucus” announced its platform. “America is a nation with a border, and a culture, strengthened by a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions,” they wrote. Among the reported members of the group: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Rep. Barry Moore (R-AL), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), a real who’s-who of Trump apologists and conspiracy mongers. Gosar was the keynote speaker at a white nationalist conference earlier this year. The “America First Caucus” was met with swift criticism on social media — this reporter...
    President Joe Biden stopped himself as he started to make a comment about women who accuse men of sexual misconduct during an interview where he discussed sexual misconduct allegations against Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. During the interview, Biden told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that Cuomo should resign if sexual misconduct allegations against him are confirmed to be true, adding “I think he’ll probably end up being prosecuted, too.” (RELATED: Corporate Media Said Biden’s Accuser Lied About Her Background. Records Show It’s Not That Simple) The president said he believed that “a woman should be presumed telling the truth and should not be scapegoated and become victimized by her coming forward,” and that allegations should be investigated. “It takes a lot of courage for a woman to come forward,” Biden said Tuesday. “Some are not — anyway, takes a lot of courage to come forward,” Biden said.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- All signs point to the Los Angeles Unified School District returning to in-person instruction next month. It was always going to be a hybrid model, but some middle and high school parents are outraged at what the district and teacher's union agreed to."My two boys are supposed to go school to sit in class and watch Zoom while their vaccinated teacher is teaching them from the comfort of their home. I couldn't believe it. They have had so much time to get this right. Not weeks, months. To look at best practices," said Joel Delman, a father of two LAUSD students.Delman has a son in 7th grade and one in 10th grade. His family has been pushing for in-person instruction, but now his kids may not return to campus for the final six weeks of the school year."What I'm really scared of is if they do decide to stay home, that the union and LAUSD say look, all these parents have decided to keep their kids home. They don't want to come back to school. That's...
    The F1 pre-season testing period is nearly upon us now, and fans just cannot wait for the upcoming season. As always, Red Bull Racing will be one of the frontline contenders to usurp the throne currently held by Mercedes. The Milton-Keynes-based outfit have been hard at work over the winter developing the right formula for their 2021 challenger that is the RB16B. Everything Red Bull unveiled from their 2021 launch was of an old car, says Chandhok Building on that, Sky Sports F1 pundit Karun Chandhok is of the opinion that Red Bull have been quite ‘secretive’ about their updates for this coming season. He stated, “Are Red Bull going to pick up where they left off in Abu Dhabi? Max was frankly dominant, it was a brilliant win and Red Bull were coming on strong.” “They’ve got a new gearbox for 2021, which they’ve kept very secret. In fact, everything they’ve unveiled from their launch was of an old car – so they’ve been super secretive, more so than normal.” The team discovered a few tweaks over continual development leading to...

    The Fraternal Order of Police in Chicago endorsed President Trump for reelection. “I will do whatever I can for him — clearly,” the FOP president of the local chapter, John Catanzara, told the Chicago Tribune of Trump. “I hope he makes a somewhat local appearance — that he doesn’t think Illinois is a lost cause and will just kind of mail it in.” The police union’s board voted to endorse Trump last week, which is an overall reflection of how the union’s members feel about the president, though Catanzara said some in Democrat-controlled Chicago won’t be happy with the decision. “But there’s definitely people who are not going to be happy about it. There are more Democrats, locally speaking, but there’s even some Democrats who would agree that the current president has been very good for employment and law enforcement these days,” he said. The National Fraternal Order of Police endorsed the president earlier this summer, so have other police unions in places such as New York and Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware. “Public safety...
    SAN ANTONIO – If Taco Bell is your go-to for a late-night munch or your favorite spot for breakfast or lunch, you have only a limited time to get some classic menu items before the chain takes them off the menu on Aug. 13. Taco Bell says it's simplifying its menu to streamline operations.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disorder qualified, speaks at a coronavirus endeavor drive briefing in Washington, DC, on June 26. Pool Contrasting some of the optimistic messaging coming out of the Trump administration in recent times, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s best infectious condition qualified, said it may well be time to “drop again a few yards” to feel about the primary reopening rules. He had a stark information for any one at ease with the dangers of Covid-19: “A danger for you is not just isolated to you mainly because if you get contaminated, you are element, innocently or inadvertently, of propagating the dynamic method of a pandemic.” Fauci commenced his feedback at the White House coronavirus job force briefing by admitting that some states could have opened as well quickly. “I will not assume there is time more than enough now all working day to try out and examine and determine out the multifaceted components that went into that,” Fauci stated. “Everything from probably opening a small bit far too early on some to opening at...
    Nelson Mandela's widow Graca Machel has implored anti-racism campaigners not to tear down statues because they serve as grave reminders of past atrocities. The activist said: 'I believe even it might be much more positive to keep them because you are going to tell generations to come "this is how it started and this is how it should never be."' Her remarks put her at loggerheads with the Archbishop of Canterbury, who today revealed he would be reviewing statues at Canterbury Cathedral. Justin Welby said monuments would be looked at 'very carefully' to see if they all 'should be there'.  In a wide-ranging interview, he also urged the West to reconsider its prevailing mindset that Jesus was white, and pointed to different portrayals of Christ as Black or Middle Eastern in different countries. The two figures waded into the heated statue debate at a time when monuments of controversial figures are under the microscope. But Machel, the widow of the former prisoner-turned-South African president, who campaigned against apartheid, stressed that historic sculptures were important to learn the lessons of the past....
    On Sunday, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation” to speak about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The segment began with host Margaret Brennan asking Gottlieb about the increase in cases being seen across the country. “We heard that the number of COVID-19 cases has exceeded 30,000 a day for the first time in about seven weeks,” Brennan said. “What is happening?” Gottlieb replied, saying that there appears to be “a resurgence in the South and the Southeast,” adding that “the worry is that they’re going to tip over into exponential growth coming this week because the cases are building quite quickly in Texas, Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Arizona.” “And the challenge with exponential growth is everything looks okay until suddenly it doesn’t,” the former FDA commissioner stated. Brennan pressed Gottlieb on his “exponential growth” remark, asking if “hospitals are about to get overwhelmed in places like Arizona and Texas.” “That’s the concern,” Gottlieb responded. “So if you look at places like Arizona, the hospitals now are getting pressed. Midweek, there was a report out...

With protests breaking out all over America in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, race in the country is once again under the spotlight.
