Susan Campbell (opinion): She quit a CT school board over ‘misogyny and racism’

For Rebekah Harriman, it came down to this: Life is too short. It’s too short to deal with intransigent ideologies and systemic dismantling of hard-fought gains. It’s too short to give up 25 hours a week in a volunteer position in which you don’t feel valued. When she resigned from Newtown’s Board of Education earlier this month, it was only after much discussion with friends and family.

Orior opens a serene space in New York

It’s always been a family affair at Orior, the Irish design studio and furniture brand founded by Brian and Rosie McGuigan in Newry. Founded in 1979, the brand has experienced a surge of regrowth since son and creative director Ciaran McGuigan took the lead in 2019. A global flagship in New York, a line of objects and an expanded furniture collection later, there certainly isn’t much keeping the house down.

Official Images Of The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Bronx Origins”

As part of the Nike Air Force 1‘s 40th anniversary, the brand is retelling the story of Bruce Kilgore’s iconic design via a series of campaigns and products. One of the moments touched on by the Swoosh is the sneaker’s significance in the Bronx. While it’s no secret that Baltimore saved the Air Force 1 Low, the “Bronx Origins” style nods to the fact that the shoe and New York City go hand-in-hand, in particular in the “B.X.” The arrangement found on the sneaker is relatively straightforward, but details like brass jewelry-reminiscent lace dubraes, vinyl-inspired profile swooshes and “BRONX ORIGINS” text visible through the semi-translucent outsole inject a special quality to the kicks.

The queer-owned brand led by food industry veterans creates out-of-this-world doughnuts that just so happen to be plant-based and gluten-free. These doughnuts are really just amazingly tasty. That should be enough to sell you on them right there. If (for some ungodly reason) you want to argue, these delicious little babies are both gluten- and animal-product-free, meaning you’re officially out of excuses and must devour them all.

At the 2022 Westminster Dog Show, Everyone Was a Winner

The Westminster Dog Show is a reliably great source of entertainment, launching pets like Wasabi the Pekingese into the upper echelons of animal stardom. This year, the winner of the coveted Best in Show prize was a stately bloodhound named Trumpet, but it must be said that he had some stiff canine competition. (I don’t know how one goes about judging bloodhounds vs. Pekingese vs. border collies vs. every other dog breed, but I’m pretty sure trying to do so would be the death of me.)
