Other songs like “thank u, next” (November...
    As long as people have expressed themselves through clothes, those in positions of authority have tried to dictate what we can wear.  The ancient Romans restricted the color purple. Louis XIV decreed the heel heights of the members of his court in 17th century France. Recently, schools throughout the US have banned hoodies. A new book, “Dress Codes: How the Laws of Fashion Made History,” by Richard Thompson Ford, out Tuesday, explores the history of sartorial mores and statutes throughout the years. Here are four of the most regulated, controversial and debated fashion items throughout history.  In 1670s, Louis XIV issued a decree saying no one could wear heels higher than the king.

Thiem pushed Novak Djokovic to five sets in last year's final at Melbourne Park before the season was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His loss to the Serb was Thiem's third defeat in a Grand Slam final and there was little for the 27-year-old to do but stew over it while locked down as the pandemic swept through Europe. He ultimately managed to put things right when the season resumed, beating Alexander Zverev in a thrilling decider at...
    This Brooklyn cop busted a move … all the way to Staten Island. An NYPD officer posted a TikTok video of himself dancing in uniform on a convenience store counter — and the footage got him a type of transfer known as “highway therapy” as punishment, police sources said Wednesday. Officer Stephen “Big Steph” Barnes — who last year earned $132,803 with overtime while working in Downtown Brooklyn’s 84th Precinct — is shown hopping up on a coffee station counter at a 7-Eleven near the stationhouse and gyrating to hip-hop, according to the footage and police sources. The raucous video then cuts to a clip of Barnes dancing on the steps of a building to the curse-filled tune “Beat Box” by the rapper SpotemGottem. “Ready to get it started, b—h, I got no sense/ Oh, he the plug, riding round with four bricks,” the song blares in the video,...

    The fates of the two most prominent public health officials during the early days of the pandemic have diverged wildly in the early Biden administration, with Dr. Anthony Fauci more ubiquitous than ever but Dr. Deborah Birx effectively ostracized. Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, is now the chief medical adviser to President Biden and is more prominent on television than ever. In just the past week, he's appeared on Face the Nation and Today to air his thoughts on the coronavirus. After having his public speaking roles sharply limited by the Trump administration, the 80-year-old National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director has made it clear that he relishes the freedom to speak under Biden. “The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence, what the science is, and know that’s it, let the science speak....

    Congress joined in a united front on President Biden's first full day in office. All it took was a controversy involving thousands of National Guardsmen being relegated during their breaks to a parking garage. Lawmakers across the political spectrum reacted with outrage as reports Thursday evening came in about the soldiers being forced to vacate congressional grounds after spending two weeks protecting Washington, D.C., following a deadly riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Sens. Tammy Duckworth, a veteran and double amputee representing Illinois, and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona announced that the troops were allowed back inside the Capitol complex around midnight. The backlash began with a Politico report that detailed how troops were told they could no longer spend their breaks at the Capitol complex. Several lawmakers offered their offices to the soldiers as a place for them to use. Among them was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "Yeah this...

    Thousands of National Guardsmen were “banished” to a cramped parking garage after being abruptly forced to leave parts of the US Capitol grounds Thursday, according to reports. Officers were told they could no longer access areas of the US Capitol Complex — including a Senate office cafeteria previously used as a rest area — after tirelessly protecting the nation’s capital in the days leading up to the presidential inauguration, according to Politico. “We honestly just feel betrayed,” one Guardsman told the outlet. “After everything went seamlessly, we were deemed useless and banished to a corner of a parking garage.” One unit of 5,000 officers  — enlisted after the deadly US Capitol breach earlier this month — was forced to take breaks in a nearby garage with no internet reception, a single electrical outlet and only two bathroom stalls, the report said.

    The coronavirus has now infected all 3,006 counties across the United States, according to a new report. The last county to record a positive case was the nation’s smallest: Kalawao County, a remote island enclave in Hawaii established in the 1860s for people with leprosy, the Wall Street Journal reported. Kalawao's first case was recorded on December 10 after one resident received a positive COVID result after returning back to the county from a trip to Honolulu.  Five leprosy patients, who are all elderly and considered high risk, still live in Kalawao.  However, the county has so far managed to avoid further spread, with the person who tested positive immediately alerting authorities and quarantining themselves. The discovery in Kalawao came just under 11 months after the first case of COVID-19 was recorded in Snohomish County, Washington, on January 20, 2020. Since then, the virus has continued to ravage its way across...
    Thousands of National Guardsmen have been moved to a parking garage after they were told they could no longer use space within the US Capitol Complex, including areas like the cafeteria of a Senate office building, as a rest area, multiple Guardsmen told CNN. Prior to Thursday morning, several areas throughout the Capitol Complex were designated as authorized rest areas where members of the Guard could take breaks from their shifts protecting Capitol. By Thursday morning, all those areas had been cleared out and their designations removed, the Guardsmen said. “We honestly just feel betrayed,” one guardsman told CNN, noting that a day before, congressmen had come by for photos with the different National Guards units that came to Washington to support security around the inauguration. “After everything went seamlessly, we were deemed useless and banished to a corner of a parking garage.” Politico was first to report on the...
    As the world adjusts to a Twitter without @realdonaldtrump, the next big question is: “Now what?” Major tech platforms, long accused of giving President Donald Trump special treatment not allotted to regular users, have shown him the door in the wake of his incitement of violence by supporters at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. He’s gone from Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat — even Shopify. But in many ways, booting the president was the easy part. Will companies now hold other world leaders to the same standard? Will they wade further into deciding what is and isn’t allowed on their platforms, potentially alienating large swaths of their user base? Will all this lead to further online splintering, pushing those flirting with extreme views to fringe sites and secret chat groups? Although they’ve long sought to remain neutral, Facebook, Twitter and other social platforms are slowly waking up to the active...
    MSNBC regular Donny Deutsch said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the “shame” from the deadly riots at the US Capitol earlier this week, means “Trump and Trumpers and his family” will be “banished forever.” Deutsch said, “I do believe the one positive thing in this is that it put a stake through Trump’s heart. We are not going to have to live with the next four years of Trump with a megaphone. There is shame attached to Trump and Trumpers and his family, and they will be gone and banished forever. So, sometimes you need to kill the head of the nauseating, disgusting, smelly fish, and that is the positive outcome of what we had to sit through this week.”  Follow Pam Key On Twitter @pamkeyNEN
    Tensions are believed to be growing between Princess Mary and her sister-in-law Princess Marie - with the bitterness slowly threatening to expose cracks in the Danish Royal family. The relationship between the Australian-born Mary - who married Prince Frederik of Denmark in 2004 - and her sister-in-law is believed to have gone rapidly downhill in recent months.   The frosty attitude towards each other is thought to have begun when French-born Marie - the wife of Frederik's younger brother Prince Joachim - aired her complaints about having to move her family to Paris permanently this year.  Joachim suffered a life-threatening health scare in July while studying at a military school in France when doctors found a deadly blood clot on his brain. But eyebrows were raised after Frederik visited his brother at his French residence Château de Cayx with Mary nowhere to be seen. Tensions have grown between Crown Princess Mary...
    By Travis Caldwell | CNN You’ve undoubtedly seen and heard the phrases in commercials since the pandemic began. “We live in unprecedented times.” “In these challenging, difficult times.” “Out of an abundance of caution.” “We’re in this together.” According to one university, that’s gone on for long enough. In its annual review, Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste.

    As 2020 comes to a close, one university wants to prevent several words and phrases from being brought into the new year. On Thursday, Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, released its annual "Banished Words List," which includes 10 words that it wants banned in 2021 for "overuse, misuse, or uselessness," the university said in its announcement.  However, many of the words might prove difficult to banish.  THE BIGGEST FOOD FAILS OF 2020, FROM TOASTED STEAKS TO TEETH-CHOPPED CARROTS More than 1,450 words and phrases were nominated from around the world.

    Getty Dwayne Haskins The New England Patriots figure to be looking to add at least one quarterback heading into the 2021 season. The quarterback(s) will come from the draft, a free agent pick-up, or perhaps even a trade, but it seems unlikely we’ll see Cam Newton, Jarrett Stidham, and Brian Hoyer back with the team next season. There is a lot of talk circulating about the Patriots being interested in a number of veteran quarterbacks, and at least 3 rookies’ names have been mentioned in conjunction with New England. One new name added to the list of potential additions is now-former Washington Football Team first-round pick Dwayne Haskins. The 24-year-old was released by the team earlier this week. He cleared waivers and some members of the media are already suggesting the Patriots take a look at Haskins with the possibility of signing him to the practice squad. The...
    There was a time when Peter Cross kept a photograph of Princess Anne in the spare bedroom of his Kent home. Signed by the Princess Royal herself and framed in leather, the image was a touching reminder of what was once tactfully referred to publicly as her 'close friendship' with the former royal protection officer. This week, after another blistering episode from the fourth series of The Crown, that so-called 'friendship' came under the spotlight once again with actress Olivia Colman, playing the on-screen version of the Queen, telling her only daughter of 'rumours about a Sergeant Cross and the two of you being intimate'. Hearing that Cross is to be 'transferred back to desk duties in Croydon', a tearful Anne, played by Erin Doherty, begs her mother: 'Don't do that to me. You can't. He's the one thing that makes me happy.' But given that the series has been...
    As communities across the U.S. scramble to treat COVID-19 patients, White House adviser Scott Atlas has been actively pushing back against state measures to control the recent uptick. His downplaying of the threat of the virus is nothing new. But the timing has left officials working on the federal government’s coronavirus response fuming and desperate for his ouster. According to multiple officials familiar with the matter, Atlas has recently pushed White House officials to find ways to prevent states from introducing what he sees as needless and restrictive stay-at-home orders, social distancing guidelines and mask mandates. Officials said Atlas views any action that limits gatherings, including holiday celebrations, as a reversal of the reopening playbook he helped install this summer—a strategy that many prominent health experts point to as one of the reasons the U.S. is in its current predicament. “He's a destructive force,” one senior official said, adding that...
    SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) — Is there a word or phrase that really bugs you? A peeve, pique or provocation? Lake Superior State University is accepting candidates for its 46th annual tongue-in-cheek list of words that should be banished. “It’s our tradition to publish the world-famous banished words list on Dec. 31 so that people don’t begin the new year by putting their foot in their mouth,” LSSU President Rodney Hanley said. “No-brainer — which also made our list in the past.” The deadline to submit online entries is 8 a.m. EST on Nov. 30. More than a dozen words or phrases were added last year, including “artisanal,” “influencer,” “living my best life” and “chirp.” There are more than 1,000 banned words or phrases in the Lake Superior State archive. The late W.T. Rabe, who was public relations director, and faculty came up with the first list at a...
    Giants wide receiver Golden Tate has had enough time to reflect on his outburst earlier this month to realize he made a significant mistake. The veteran, who has been in the NFL for 11 years, followed a Nov. 2 touchdown catch by yelling into a TV camera that he needs to get the ball more. He also liked a tweet asking for him to be cut, and his wife complained about his targets on Instagram. New York banished him to its practice squad for his antics. Tate on Friday told reporters that his actions were selfish and out of line. “I just got caught up in the moment. I was wrong to draw attention to myself. I take full responsibility for that,” Tate said. “I handled it the wrong way and, again, brought negative attention to our organization. It was something that won’t happen again.” MORE: NFL predictions for Week 10 Tate’s incident...

    The grandmother of the New York state trooper who worked as Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s bodyguard and was transferred to the Canadian border after starting a relationship with the politician’s daughter is speaking out to reveal the couple had been together for a 'long time' and even discussed marriage.  Dane Pfeiffer, a former tennis player and state trooper, 35, is believed to have struck up a relationship with the governor’s daughter Cara Kennedy-Cuomo, 25, in April during the pandemic. Last month it was revealed that Pfeiffer, who became a trooper in 2015, was reportedly reassigned to a post near the Canadian border after Gov. Cuomo learned of the relationship.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Civil rights groups filed a federal lawsuit Thursday on behalf of a protester who was arrested and allegedly banned by police in Kansas City, Missouri, from participating in future protests or returning to the popular dining and shopping district where the protests were held. The ACLU of Missouri and MacArthur Justice Center sued Kansas City, Missouri, police commissioners challenging what they call an unconstitutional verbal banishment order. The lawsuit stems from a June 1 protest against police brutality and racial injustice at the Country Club Plaza during which Theresa Taylor and about 100 others were arrested. The lawsuit contends that when she was released on bail, police told her that if she returned to the Plaza she would be arrested and held without bail. Police spokesman Jake Becchina declined to comment on the litigation. “Kansas City Police’s order banishing Ms. Taylor from that area —...

    Halo Infinite trailer just dropped on official social media platforms. This one did not feature Master Chief like the previous one. “Their brazen defiance will be all but a memory.” These lines seem to echo the entire feel of the trailer. The trailer hit simultaneously across all social media channels linking back to the previous trailer where we saw the Ring. That voice, it just reminds us of ones who were forgotten.
