BOSTON (CBS) — Julian Edelman had a tough time watching Saturday night’s Patriots playoff loss to the Bills. And only part of that had to do with his promoted dip into the gambling world going awry. The future Patriots Hall of Famer watched his former team look nothing like itself in a huge moment, as the Bills trounced the visiting Patriots 47-17. READ MORE: Happy 20th Birthday To The Snow Bowl -- Or The Tuck Rule Game, Depending On Your Perspective As you might expect, Edelman’s assessment of the game was not particularly rosy. “First thing, lack of urgency, lack of energy. You go on the road against a team you played a few weeks before that you lost to, and you put out the effort that you saw, it just didn’t look good, Edelman said on the latest episode of “Inside The NFL” on Paramount+ . “You can’t sit here and say it was one thing, it was this situation, it was a third down, it was … They got outcoached, they got outplayered, they got outefforted.

Why are lessons learned important
In to show on the Paris couture schedule under his own name since Mainbocher in the 1930s, recipient of a National Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum , someone whose work Oprah Winfrey once called “a religious experience” — became a member of a club no designer wants to join: The one where you lose your name. He left behind the eponymous house he had founded in 1994, Chado Ralph Rucci — which was rechristened just Ralph Rucci in 2013 after This week, he came back. On Sunday, Mr. Rucci held his first couture show in 12 years, under a new moniker, RR331, which sounds like R2D2’s weird uncle. Actually it is a combination of his initials and the number of steps in the Japanese tea ritual, a reference to his former brand name, which was itself a reference to his exacting and time-intensive approach to design. At the Ritz in front of 150 people — most of them clients, or potential clients, the show featured his trademark precision cutting, intricate … [Read more...] about He Lost His Name.

CLEVELAND — The Republican Party woke up to a cascade of finger-pointing and confusion on Tuesday as the Trump campaign was rocked by accusations that parts of Melania Trump’s convention speech had been cribbed from the one that Michelle Obama delivered to Democrats in 2008. The possibility that Ms. Trump’s remarks had been plagiarized cast a cloud over the second day of the Republican National Convention and laid bare lingering tensions within the party surrounding the nomination of Donald J. Trump, whose campaign continues to be plagued by stumbles and infighting despite several reboots. The disarray was evident as Mr. Trump’s campaign and senior Republicans offered conflicting explanations for the similarities in the speeches, with some officials conceding that the passages were lifted and demanding accountability, and others arguing that nothing untoward had occurred. Among Mr. Trump’s aides, there was a palpable sense of frustration that Ms. Trump’s speech, which they … [Read more...] about Questions Over Melania Trump’s Speech Set Off Finger-Pointing
THE CHIFFON TRENCHES A Memoir In America, if you are black and aim higher than the reach history has set for you, the white gaze will try to leech your spirit of its racial identity. Very often, it will succeed. Such is the case with the fashion fixture and former Vogue editor at large André Leon Talley, whose memoir, “The Chiffon Trenches,” is at once a summing-up of his decades-long career and a pointed commentary on how whiteness works. Talley grew up in Durham, N.C., raised by his grandmother while his parents pursued careers in Washington, D.C. His childhood consisted of school, church, cousins — and Talley’s favorite place, the library, where he discovered Vogue. Although he writes about having dreamed of meeting Pat Cleveland (one of the first black models he saw in the pages of Vogue), it was the magazine’s depiction of Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball — a refined world where “bad things never happened” — that appealed to Talley most. After watching the … [Read more...] about Anna Wintour Is Not the Star of André Leon Talley’s Memoir. He Is.
Ivanka and Jared, aged with FaceApp. Photo: Source Photograph: Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images The Hamptons season was in full, humid swing when Ivanka Trump went missing at its most important geezer party. Each Fourth of July weekend, Lally Weymouth, the 76-year-old daughter of the Washington Post ’s former owners, celebrates her birthday with an event that’s like a “D.C.–New York–glitterati bar mitzvah,” says Anthony Scaramucci, a guest at the seated dinner for hundreds in a striped tent on her estate, where a microphone is set up on a stage for speeches attesting to her grit and longevity. Weymouth’s crowd is the mix of politicos, media personalities, and financiers that drives Americans crazy — they’re supposed to hate each other, not party together — from Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to Democratic fund-raiser Alan Patricof to ex-titans like former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein. It’s also notable for the considerably advanced age of the attendees. “If you’re under 50, … [Read more...] about Ivanka Aeternum
Patrick Radden Keefe has always been interested in secrets. “I think I have an almost childlike suggestibility where if you tell me you know a secret and you won’t tell, I’m going to do everything I can to figure out what that secret is,” he said in a video interview from his home in Westchester County, N.Y. But if you’ve ever read something Keefe, 44, has written, you may already sense that he has a passion for unearthing what’s hidden. In his 2009 book, “ The Snakehead ,” he reported on a human smuggling operation run out of New York’s Chinatown, untangling the web of the enterprise and highlighting its victims and its perpetrators. In his 2019 best-seller, “ Say Nothing ,” he dove into the decades-long sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland, particularly the mystery surrounding Jean McConville, a young mother who was kidnapped from her home in 1972. Now he’s back with a new book, “ Empire of Pain ,” out from Doubleday on Tuesday, that examines the opioid crisis. It’s a … [Read more...] about For Him, the Delight Is in the Digging
0 Community Corner Turner talks growing up on the South Side in the '70s, how history and housing intertwine in Chicago and the lasting bonds of sisterhood. South Side Weekly , News Partner Posted Reply By Carr Harkrader, the South Side Weekly : It's a Saturday morning in the early 1970s and two sisters just want to watch cartoons. But their mom, grandmother, and aunt are discussing their dreams. Between sips of coffee and bites of Necco Wafers, the women pore over barely held-together numerology books. Their hope is to convert their dreams into numbers and those numbers into luck for the next time they play policy, the "not-so-legal precursor to the lottery" popular among Black communities. The game "was creed to the women" in her house. So, as the older women monopolized the living room with the tv, the sisters had to wait. Dawn Turner documents many scenes like these in her new memoir, Three Girls from Bronzeville: A … [Read more...] about Q&A With Dawn Turner, Author Of ‘Three Girls From Bronzeville’

A week before Christmas, I spent a happy afternoon at the 79th World Science Fiction Convention, known as DisCon III. Even though sf - I prefer the classic acronym over the now commonly heard but juvenile "sci-fi" - has recently been embroiled in culture wars, the programming at the 2021 con was sufficiently varied that any new or old fan could find talks and panels of interest. Strict covid protocols didn't hamper the enthusiasm of the masked and vaccinated attendees thronging Washington's Omni Shoreham Hotel. Writer Nancy Kress and artist John Harris were guests of honor, African fantastika was center stage, the 2021 Hugo for best novel went to Martha Wells's "Network Effect," and Chengdu, China, after a vigorous campaign, won the bid to host 2023's Worldcon. Note that's 2023. Before then, writers, artists and readers will assemble this fall for Chicon 8, a successor to the Chicago Worldcon of 1940. As it happens, the father-son team of David and Daniel Ritter devote the latest … [Read more...] about Book World: Science fiction – please, let’s not call it ‘sci-fi’ – is more than just a reaction to the present
