    All of the nation’s wealthiest rich people convened in Sun Valley, Idaho, for the annual so-called “billionaire summer camp.” But these aren’t the American elite of your grandparents’ generation. These are, quite possibly, some of the worst dressed folks living among us — surpassing the likes of Lena Dunham. Can you imagine? Gone are the days of the fabulous Gloria Vanderbilt in her Gilded Age townhouse, Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis on the Manhattan streets with her sister Lee Radziwell, or Jerry Hall baring it all in Yves Saint Laurent at Studio 54. For many of us style connoisseurs, it often feels as though we’re nostalgic for periods that we never experienced. There’s a reason for that and it is that our current fashion outlook is bleak, our elite are ugly, and the culture, to put it bluntly, sucks.

The purple and gold are in 10th place in the Western Conference standings. Most pundits expect Pelinka to try to trade Westbrook in the summer since the one-time MVP has been an awful fit next to LeBron and Davis.

    Along with word that Microsoft is seemingly working on a new store for Windows 10 comes a report regarding its rumored Cloud PC service. According to ZDNet, Microsoft is gearing up to flip the switch on the Azure-powered service as soon as this summer, perhaps in June or early July. With Cloud PC, you may be able to access a Windows desktop remotely and use software such as Microsoft Office. That could come in handy if you frequently switch between devices and want access to the same desk top anywhere, or if you have an underpowered system and a solid enough internet connection. Companies would also be able to set up employees with basic hardware and manage their Windows 10 networks with Cloud PC. Microsoft will reportedly sell the service as a managed Microsoft 365 experience and there’ll be a flat price per user. Previous reports suggested there will be different pricing tiers for Cloud PC, depending on processor, memory and storage needs. We could learn more about the Cloud PC service at Build 2021.

    U.S. consumer confidence has dropped to its lowest level since the summer amid a worsening coronavirus pandemic. Rising cases and deaths have led to new lockdowns, softening consumer confidence in the economy.  The latest Conference Board report released Tuesday showed the Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) declined in December following a decrease in November. The score ranked at 92.9 last month and fell to 88.6 in December. The CCI is a measure of how people feel about the economy now and how they feel it's going to perform in the future, which is correlated with how much people are willing to spend.Back in August, the number dropped to 84.8 from 91.7 in July. Consumption accounts for nearly two-thirds of the U.S. economic activity, and Tuesday's Conference Board report underscored, "current conditions deteriorated sharply in December, as the resurgence of COVID-19 remains a drag on confidence,” said Lynn Franco, Senior Director of Economic Indicators.There were a few notes of optimism found among consumers' short-term outlooks. Consumers elevated their beliefs that economic conditions will improve over the next six months, rising from 26.5 to 29...
    Since they got eliminated by the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Semifinals, rumors have been continuously swirling around All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook and his future with the Houston Rockets. Though the Rockets have already denied the speculations that they are planning to trade him, most people are still expecting Westbrook to change teams this offseason. One of the teams that could express interest in trading for Westbrook is the Milwaukee Bucks. According to Danny Cunningham of Complex, the Bucks could acquire Westbrook by sending a package that includes Ersan Ilyasova, Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez, Eric Bledsoe, and a 2020 first-round pick to the Rockets. The deal works on ESPN‘s NBA Trade Machine. Though his fit in Milwaukee remains a big question mark, Cunningham believes that trading for Westbrook will boost the Bucks’ chances of preventing Antetokounmpo from leaving in the summer of 2021 where he is set to become an unrestricted free agent. “Is Westbrook a perfect fit in Milwaukee? Absolutely not. He’s not a great shooter from the outside and not a great defender, either. But...
    The World Economic Forum has canceled next year’s conference in Davos, Switzerland amid the coronavirus pandemic — but the annual event may take place elsewhere, according to reports. The international business group recently told the town’s hotels in a letter that it would not hold its 2021 conference there, Swiss media reported Tuesday. “As things stand today, the WEF 2021 in Davos will unfortunately be completely canceled,” Davos tourism official Reto Branschi told the Südostschweiz newspaper. The revelation followed the Geneva-based WEF’s late August move to postpone the meeting — which attracts corporate and government leaders from around the world — from January to early summer because of COVID-19 concerns. The organization is now looking for a different location in Switzerland to host the conference, according to Südostschweiz, which reported that most of the Alpine resort town’s hotels would be closed during the late spring and early summer months. “We were somewhat surprised by this letter,” Tamara Henderson, president of Hotel Gastro Davos, a local hotel industry group, told Switzerland’s Keystone-ATS News Agency. “We feel left out and we...
