    Buying second-hand, that is, clothes that have already been worn, has long been seen as devaluing. But the explosion of online commerce since the coronavirus crisis and the rise of environmental awareness are breaking the barriers. Positioned in the second-hand niche of luxury clothing and accessories, the French startup Vestiaire Collective has a front row seat to reap the benefits. Tuesday March 2, the Parisian nugget announced the success of a massive fundraising of 178 million euros, a record of 2021 for the moment. Consecration: the operation is led by the luxury giant Kering, which wishes to better position itself in this booming market, as well as an American investment fund, Tiger Global Management, which will support the international growth of the startup. According to the press release, Kering has taken a stake of around 5% in Vestiaire Collective, which officially becomes the 11th French unicorn, i.e. a startup...

    Bitcoin took another step this week, with the cryptocurrency surpassing the price point of $ 50,000 and later, $ 52,000. In fact, right now the story “It’s closer to $ 100,000 than $ 0” trumps any other. The bullish momentum accompanying BTC’s price movements has permeated different parts of the digital asset industry, the same evidenced by the derivatives ecosystem. Funding rate skyrockets in stock markets Source: Skew According to Skew, the BTC funding rate in some derivatives exchanges has reached its highest level since May-June 2019 recently. If the financing rate, on average, is even higher than the rate observed over this period, it is much closer in comparison. An increase in the funding rate usually indicates that the number of long positions is much greater than the number of shorts. A higher number of long positions implies that the collective market is more bullish than...
    Reaction to Pac-12 developments on and off the field (and court) … 1. Collective strength The $50 million anonymous donation for the Reser Stadium renovation is a game-changing event for Oregon State athletics, but the impact will be felt in every corner of the Pac-12 over time. The closer each football program gets to its potential, the stronger the collective and the greater chance the conference has of reaching its ceiling. Unfortunately, the correlation between OSU’s stadium renovation and the Pac-12 producing a College Football Playoff team in any given year isn’t direct. The transmission gets routed and rerouted through various circuits on the Pac-12 motherboard, to the point that it’s difficult to see any relationship between the two. But it’s there. Across the sweep of many seasons, the stronger the programs on the lower end of the conference’s  revenue chain, the better for everyone. Football is a zero-sum game...

    Sometimes it’s karaoke. Sometimes it’s multiplayer games like skribbl or Among Us. Whatever it is, middle-school student Tiggerina Virgen never skips her after-school program — even though it means more time on Zoom. During one meeting, Alejandrina Arizmendi-Ruiz, a recent college graduate who runs the sessions, found out that Tiggerina had an F in science. She quickly mobilized support for Tiggerina, making sure she submitted missing work and stayed on track. Tiggerina’s grade rose to a D. Then a C. “I was, like, I’m so proud of you!’” Arizmendi-Ruiz said. “I asked her: ‘So, what helped you change that grade? What are you planning to do next?’” Arizmendi-Ruiz’s intervention at John Liechty Middle School typifies the work of 225 young adults who are embedded in 26 schools throughout Los Angeles County, including Boyle Heights, Inglewood, Pico Union and Watts. They’re part of City Year, a nonprofit tied to AmeriCorps....
    Massive vaccination campaigns, in the face of the galloping progression of Covid-19, will not be enough to guarantee collective immunity in 2021, the WHO warned on Monday, a team of which is expected this week in China, a year after the announcement the first of nearly 2 million deaths from the pandemic. Case statistics, which now exceed the 90 million recorded, are panicking around the world, due to more contagious mutations of the virus. One year to the day after Beijing announced the first death of Covid-19, a man who was shopping in a Wuhan market, China has given the green light to the arrival of a team of experts from the WHO (World Health Organization) responsible for investigating the origin of the coronavirus, initially expected last week. The visit of these 10 experts, now scheduled from Thursday, is ultra-sensitive for the Chinese regime, anxious to avoid any responsibility...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain clinched a Brexit trade deal with the European Union on Thursday, just seven days before it exits one of the world's biggest trading blocs in its most significant global shift since the loss of empire. Here are some of the reactions. Helen Dickinson, Chief Executive of the British Retail Consortium: "After years of campaigning for zero-tariff trade, we welcome the announcement of a free-trade agreement between the UK and EU. This protects consumers on both sides of the Channel from billions in import tariffs on everyday goods. Given that four-fifths of UK food imports come from the EU, today’s announcement should afford households around the UK a collective sigh of relief." Airbus: Airbus welcomed the news and said in a statement it was pleased the potential disruption from a no-deal scenario had been avoided. Richard Burge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry: “Businesses...
    A mysterious shining monolith has appeared at a theme park for mountain bikers in New Zealand. It is the latest in a series of similar metal obelisks that have appeared eerily around the world, seemingly out of thin air. Some carry strange engravings.  Christchurch Adventure Park in the Port Hills near Canterbury on New Zealand's South Island posted a picture of the monolith that appeared in a grassy patch near its 1.8km chair lift to social media on Sunday.

    Replicas of the mysterious stainless steel monoliths that have been appearing around the world are being sold online just in time for holidays — but they don't come cheap.  The Most Famous Artist, an anonymous collective based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, that has claimed responsibility for the structures in Utah and California, has already sold out of its three 10-foot-tall 'authentic alien' monoliths, which were priced at a whopping $45,000 per piece.  For those looking for a cheaper, albeit still pricey option, made-to-order facsimiles of the Utah monolith are also being sold on Etsy by MakerBuilder to the tune of $10,000, but at least there is free shipping.  Big gift: People are selling replicas of the monolith that was discovered in Utah's remote Red Rock Country on November 18 and removed on November 27 Pricey: The Most Famous Artist, an anonymous collective based in Santa Fe, New Mexico,...

The Utah highway patrol/Facebook/Ziar Piatra Neamt/Courtesy of Nic Mattson/Atascadero News The Most Famous Artist, an artist collective founded by Matty Mo, announced it is selling monoliths for $45,000 each, prompting people to suspect it is behind the mysterious monoliths around the world. Neither the collective nor Mo himself have explicitly claimed credit for creating the monolith, and Mo said on a recent Instagram Live broadcast that he "didn't do the monolith, but [he] didn't not do the monolith." Mo told Insider he could confirm that "we have installed monoliths," but that for legal reasons, he couldn't say more. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Isle of Wight locals are baffled by the arrival of a monolith as the art collective behind similar shiny statues popping up around the world said the south coast sculpture is not their responsibility.   The three-sided metal object was found by beachgoers at Compton Bay on the Isle of Wight on Sunday.  The Most Famous Artist, also known as Matty Mo, is thought to have been behind some of the other monoliths that appeared in the US. But the sculptor has denied creating the Isle of Wight structure, saying the piece was 'out of his control'.  The Isle of Wight's tourist board has welcomed the arrival, saying this morning: 'We track all of our marketing efforts, but didn’t realise that our “discover the Isle of Wight” message had got to a galaxy far far away".'  A three-sided metal monolith has appeared on a beach on the Isle of Wight,...
    The mystery shrouding the metal monoliths discovered across the globe appears to be revealed after a New Mexico art collective claimed responsibility.  Conspiracy theories speculating aliens circulated when a stainless steel, 10-foot monolith was discovered in a remote area of the Utah desert by wildlife officials on November 18.  Nearly two weeks later, a similar installation was spotted overlooking a river on Batca Doamnei Hill in the city of Piatra Neamt in northern Romania. And a third structure appeared at the top of the Pine Mountain in Atascadero, California, on Wednesday in another plot twist. The world was fascinated when one mysterious monolith appeared in a Utah desert (left) in November, then a second one was found in Piatra Neamt, Romania, soon after  On Wednesday, a third metal monolith was photographed at the top of the Pine Mountain in Atascadero, California (pictured) Now, The Most Famous Artist has seemingly...
    OAKLAND (KPIX) — An Oakland chef who gained fame as the winner of a popular TV cooking competition is sharing his good fortune and business skills with other black food entrepreneurs during the pandemic.

    President-elect Joe Biden and future first lady Jill penned an optimistic op-ed on Thursday, saying how the COVID-19 crisis as “has revealed our collective strength” despite the tough year. As Americans prepare to celebrate a Thanksgiving like no other, the couple ran through a list of what they’re grateful for this year, including frontline workers, health care employees, parents, teachers and the experts working toward developing a vaccine against coronavirus. “We are grateful for the American spirit of our people, who do not cower in the face of crisis and hardship but instead come together to lift up one another,” the Bidens wrote in the piece published by CNN. “All those who lost jobs but not heart, who donated to food banks or asked their neighbors, What can I do? How can I help? We’re grateful for everyone who reminded us that we are bigger than the challenges we face.”...
    A politicized healthcare crisis, horrifyingly unnecessary death, a crucial election. “Collective,” a piercing documentary about corruption in Romania, may not directly concern current events but it feels urgent and vital just the same. In 2015, a fire swept through a Bucharest nightclub without emergency exits. Footage early in “Collective” (in theaters and on-demand Friday) captures the frighteningly fast flames engulfing the crowded club just after, fittingly, a punk band scream a song about endemic corruption in the Eastern European country. The fire left 27 dead and 180 injured. But the real scandal came after; another 37 people died of burn wounds that shouldn’t have been life threatening. It’s in that aftermath that Romanian director Alexander Nanau began trailing the journalists of Gazeta Sporturilor, a sports tabloid that under editor Cătălin Tolontan consistently advanced the story with dogged reporting. They uncovered the heinous reason for the out-of-control bacteria in Romanian...
    Held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving, the MCAD Art Sale at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design is a crush, a scene, a party and a chance to buy affordable original art while supporting emerging artists. It’s the largest college art sale in the nation and the biggest community event at MCAD. This will be its 23rd year, and as you have probably guessed, COVID has turned it inside-out. The sale will be online only, no crowds, no chatter, no meeting and greeting friends and no lines except for curbside pickup. The MCAD Art Sale has built a huge following to become one of the most anticipated arts events of the year. Speaking from experience, you never know what you’ll discover or what you’ll end up bringing home. To collectors and fans, it’s worth paying extra for VIP early access and first dibs on potentially great finds. VIP will...
    Left-wing filmmaker Rob Reiner has made the wild accusation that the Republican party is “an accomplice to murder” and that the party is out of its “collective fucking mind.” It remains unclear what exactly provoked the director’s latest Twitter tantrum on Monday. But it comes after Joe Biden publicly said that “this is the time to heal in America” and to bring a divided nation together. Time magazine also ran on its most recent cover “A Time to Heal.” The Republican Party is out of its collective fucking mind. And an accomplice to murder. — Rob Reiner (@robreiner) November 17, 2020 Rob Reiner is an avid Joe Biden supporter who served as a key Hollywood fundraiser for the Democratic presidential candidate.

    The Buffalo Bills appeared destined to walk out of the desert with a win, but the Cardinals had other plans. Somehow, someway, the Arizona Cardinals have leapfrogged the Seattle Seahawks for the NFC West lead. Of course, that happened in dramatic fashion. In the waning seconds of the fourth quarter, the Cardinals held a 26-23 lead over the Buffalo Bills. The Cardinals looked to be heading for heartbreak after quarterback Josh Allen threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to receiver Stefon Diggs, but then they called a Hail Mary, literally.
    The statements of the sporting director of PSG, Leonardo, are not at all passed to the members of the Collective Ultras Paris. After having drawn the wrath of Luis Fernandez, Leonardo also made the Collective Ultras Paris react following his controversial remarks about the place of football in Paris. “There is a culture in the city to build. Paris was never exactly the city of football. It is still Marseille. In Paris, there are still a lot of things to be done, ”he said in a question-and-answer session with Parisian supporters at the Parc des Princes. “What would remain in Marseille without football? “ This awkward exit from the Parisian leader made the Ultras react, who did not hesitate to send a spade to supporters of Olympique de Marseille. “It is not because the richness and the beauty of the City of Light are not...
    Roughly 700 activists were arrested in 2016 for protesting the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, an underground oil pipeline connecting the Bakken shale oil fields in northwest North Dakota with a storage facility in Illinois. Hundreds of those arrested were freed from jail by one man – an obscure 26-year-old from a small town in Oregon – who admits to paying more than $100,000 in cash bond payments. The mysterious payments, obtained by the Daily Caller, appear to be linked to radical environmental groups funded, in part, by Warren Buffett, who had a personal financial stake in preventing the construction of the pipeline. During its construction, thousands of activists converged on the Standing Rock Sioux reservation to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, claiming it would pollute drinking water and desecrate tribal land. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and a number of state and local environmental agencies conducted studies...
    Layshia Clarendon talked with The Step Back about activism, the collective power in sports, defunding the police and what comes next. The WNBA and its rich history of athlete-activism have been especially fashionable talking points this year, with sports operating in some ways as a vehicle for athletes to exercise their power. Over the years, the trait that separated the WNBA from the rest was that its players have consistently taken action as a collective, as a league of predominantly Black women standing in solidarity with each other and often taking positions outside of the sports-industrial complex mainstream. In 2016, four players from the Minnesota Lynx were among the first athletes to come out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, predating Colin Kaepernick. The Milwaukee Bucks’ decision to strike for a game this year in protest of the shooting of Jacob Blake falls into a lineage of collective...

    The Atlantic endorsed Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president Thursday, marking the fourth time in the magazine’s 163-year history that it endorsed a presidential candidate. The magazine’s endorsement centered around the United States’ national security, urging Americans to ask themselves which candidate they would trust more in responding to a “national security crisis without triggering a nuclear exchange.” “Americans should ask which candidate… is better equipped to interpret – within five or seven minutes – the ambiguous, complicated, and contradictory signals that could suggest a nuclear attack,” the editorial says. “These are certainly not questions that large numbers of voters asked themselves in 2016, when a transparently unqualified candidate won the support of 63 million Americans.” The editorial notes its endorsement of Hillary Clinton four years ago over concerns regarding Trump’s rhetoric, “admiration for authoritarian rulers” and more, claiming that they actually “understated our case. Donald Trump is the worst...
    Maybe you don't like politics with your beer. Or maybe you think small businesses should stay above the ideological fray so that they don't alienate one group of potential customers while catering to another. It's an understandable take, but one that really isn't possible anymore in a country that is now truly divided. Even the simplest choices — such as what organization to donate money to or whether or not to support the Black Lives Matter movement or enforce mask rules — can have repercussions. So, with that "damned if you do, damned if you don't" environment as the background, a few breweries are putting politics on tap. Others are simply encouraging people to vote, including Arvada's Luki Brewery, which is offering people the chance to vote on the style characteristics for its yet-to-be-brewed Democracy IPA, which will be released on November 3 — election day. (Hurry, though, because voting on...

    Mark Overly, the owner of Kaladi Coffee Roasters, has worked in coffee for over thirty years. With October's designation as National Fair Trade Month, Overly has more than a few words to share about the history of the Fairtrade certification and his choice to source 90 percent of his beans from Fairtrade-certified producers. “It’s our vehicle to quality,” he says. “It’s the way that we establish relationships directly with farmers so that we can produce the coffee we’re looking for.” Overly says that Fairtrade has always challenged the status quo of the coffee industry because it changed the model of how small farms and buyers interact. Fairtrade gives small farm cooperatives the ability to personally negotiate with buyers instead of going through larger coffee estates. But the co-op model also means that portions of the profit go back into community-chosen improvements rather than directly to individual farmers. This method of...
    In early June, J.C. Futrell, the education director at RedLine Contemporary Art Center, challenged resident artist Lares Feliciano to create a work reflecting on the police murder of George Floyd, and she dashed off an urgent video. But as Feliciano witnessed police brutality at protests and watched her partner come back from the demonstrations night after night, clothes soaked in teargas and body covered in bruises from rubber bullets, Futrell's challenge continued to nag at her. And soon the artist started an animation project focusing on the murders of Black people by police and the collective trauma those killings have caused in our country. "I wanted to find a way to both express my rage against police violence and white supremacy and also express my grief over the lives that are continually lost over and over again: people being shot by police, specifically black people being shot by police,"...
    Blair Sagan makes art out of trash and has an uncanny ability to turn the worst situations into something positive. From April to August, the non-binary artist, activist and graphic designer lived at Night Window, a new artist housing project, in a motel room converted into an $800-a-month live-work studio apartment at 8400 East Colfax Avenue. Upon moving in, Sagan (who uses "they" pronouns), thought it would be a semi-collective space where creatives could come together and build community. Instead, they found the residents were isolated from each other. "I moved in here thinking this was a dream, and I wanted to start something similar and learn what they're doing right and wrong," says Sagan. "It turned into a nightmare pretty quickly."Related Stories Denver Artists Are Being Priced Out. Is This Colfax Motel a Fix?

    NORTH LAWNDALE — Village Leadership Academy students celebrated a historic victory recently after persuading the Chicago Park District Board to rename Douglas Park in honor of Frederick Douglass and Anna Murray Douglass. This is the first time a Chicago public park has been renamed, setting a precedent for the city to strip the names of other controversial historical figures from parks, streets, schools and libraries. It was a years-long battle starting in 2017 when the students, many of whom live in North Lawndale, first learned their neighborhood park was named not for abolitionist Frederick Douglass but for Stephen A. Douglas, who advocated for the expansion of slavery. Douglas, a Civil War-era senator from Illinois, is not known to have owned slaves himself, but his wife did. “If your park is named after a slaveholder and your neighborhood is predominantly Black, that’s really offensive to your people,” said Aryn Peterson, a...

    Getty A young girl touches a name on the 9/11 memorial South Tower pool of the World Trade Center. The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were the worst acts of terrorism on American soil to date. Designed to instill panic and fear, the attacks were unprecedented in terms of their scope, magnitude and impact on the American psyche. The vast majority (over 60 percent) of Americans watched these attacks occur live on television or saw them replayed over and over again in the days, weeks and years following the attacks. As we reflect on the anniversary of this tragic event, a question to consider is: How has this event impacted those individuals who are too young to remember a world before 9/11? As an applied social psychologist, I study responses to natural and human-caused adversities that impact large segments of the population – also called “collective trauma.”...

    Looks like The Boys’ cast and crew are well on their way toward being labeled Suppressive Persons by the Church of Scientology. Amazon’s gritty, bombastic superhero series is at its best when it uses the narcissistic, preening heroes at its center as a microcosm for a broader cultural problem—the PR machines that undergird and protect pretty much all powerful institutions and the figures that represent them. So perhaps it’s no surprise that in its second season, which premiered its first three episodes Friday, The Boys introduces fallen “hero” The Deep, played by Chace Crawford, to a new religion called the Church of the Collective—an expensive and controlling religion that promises to get his life and career back on track. Much like driving a speedboat through a whale, there’s little subtlety to how The Boys chooses to engage with the Church of Scientology. The show’s Church of the Collective is...
    Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has branded the daily recorded arrival of 416 migrants a “complete humiliation”, and that unless the Conservative government has the political will to pull out of the EU’s asylum regulations, the boats will keep coming. The government revealed that a record-breaking 409 illegal aliens had crossed the English Channel in small boats and landed on British shores on Wednesday. Later, that figure was revised up to 416, taking the total since January 2020 to more than 5,600. To understand the scale of the migrant crisis, by comparison, just 297 illegals arrived by boat in the whole of 2018. Referencing the earlier-reported figure, Mr Farage asked Westmonster’s Michael Heaver on Thursday: “What is the collective noun for 409 migrants coming into Dover in one day? I’ll tell you what it is: it’s a humiliation. Complete humiliation.” The Brexit Party leader continued: “We’ve had the Home Secretary talking...

Flood your windows, your balconies, your cars with our colors! Tomorrow will be a historic...
    Days after thousands of lives perished on 9/11, the United States marked a national day of prayer and remembrance for the victims of the worst terrorist attack in the nation’s history. President George W. Bush delivered words of comfort and encouragement at the packed National Cathedral in Washington, where four former US presidents as well as political and religious leaders gathered on a gray cloudy morning that gave way to bright sunshine. “Grief and tragedy and hatred are only for a time,” Bush said. “But goodness, remembrance and love have no end. The Lord of life holds all who die, and all who mourn.” For days mourners poured into houses of worship. Church bells tolled. The dead were remembered at candlelight vigils across the country. Nearly two decades later, in the midst of another national tragedy that has the US approaching 170,000 deaths from Covid-19, there have been few signs...
    The tiny house on Governors Island. Frank Olito/ Insider I spent a night on Governors Island at Collective Retreats' tiny house in the middle of New York City.  For $1,000, I got a 300-square foot tiny house, magnificent views, and a complimentary breakfast. However, there was little to no privacy and the retreats' grounds were unkempt. With such a high price tag, I expected more from a luxury stay and left a bit disappointed.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Tiny houses are all over the US, but some may be surprised that you can also find some of them in the middle of New York City.  Collective Retreats is located on Governors Island — which is sandwiched between Manhattan and Brooklyn — and offers luxury tents and tiny houses to rent for short stays. Since I've stayed in a tiny house in the suburbs in the...

    The living world turns chaos into order by making large structures out of small units. The sublime coordination of a flock of birds or a school of fish—built iteratively from the twitches and bumps of single individuals—turns instinctive behaviors into something vast and graceful. It’s not just for show. A lone gazelle can’t evade a fast-moving lion anywhere near as well as a slippery, undulating herd. With that in mind, take a look at this video of a truck barreling through protesters in Minneapolis in May. The densely packed protesters swirl out of the truck’s path, then close ranks back around it when the truck stops. For a few moments, the movements of the protesters look very much like a murmuration of starlings responding to an attacking falcon, or maybe little fish to a shark—parting like water in front of a boat, swirling in eddies around the invader, regrouping...

    I recently lost a close friend to cancer. We became friends as teenagers in the mid-1990s and went to high school and college together. Our upbringing couldn’t have been more different. I grew up in what would become Michele Bachmann country while he grew up in Wellstone country. My parents came to the U.S. from India in the 1970s and his family had been a part of the Twin Cities for generations. Despite these differences, we developed a common bond as students that came, in part, from a mutual appreciation of rebellion. In history class my friend loved topics about the protests of the 1960s, counterculture, and Vietnam while I was obsessed with Malcolm X and historical insurgences against colonization. We were very close to the point where my parents would often refer to him as my sibling. Eventually, I attended grad school at Oxford and spent a lot of...

    Breaking News — Madrid, Jun 27 . .- Izquierda Unida points out in a manifesto, on the occasion of the Pride 2020 events, that the rights won by the LGTBI collective “are in danger, nothing that has been achieved is irreversible” and warns that the movement may be “bordered” by the rise of the “far right” and “fascism”. In a manifesto entitled “Let’s break the closets: equality will be law”, the Left United Affective-Sexual Freedom of Expression Area (ALEAS-IU) warns that “steps back can be subtle and imperceptible”, but once started In this way, the LGTBI collective may end up “confined in closed spaces, socially armed and devalued, with a second-class citizenship status.” Izquierda Unida emphasizes the rise of “authoritarian movements of the extreme right, conservative populism and fascism” that defend a political ideology that has the LGTBI collective “as one of its targets”, in a society “frightened and...
    New York-based performer and activist Ianne Fields Stewart had an idea in December 2018. Stewart wanted to raise money to hire a black transgender chef to go into the homes of black transgender people and cook a meal for them during the holiday season.  That idea sparked a collective, The Okra Project, which now provides free, home-cooked meals — and much more — to black trans people who may be experiencing food insecurity. "At first it was just supposed to be a project that we would do as a nice way to address the fact that many people don't have homes that they feel comfortable going home to in the winter time," Stewart, who is a non-binary queer lesbian trans woman and whose pronouns are they/she, told CBS News. "So, that was the original idea of it and it has become something much more." Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox...

    As the economic and social shutdown stretches into months, Americans across the ideological divide have increasingly voiced frustration at isolation orders -- with businesses, parks, schools and churches shuttered. "I kind of thought those restrictions were kind of tough for the church to be able to do it. I get it," said Rev. Bob Jackson, senior pastor at Acts Full Gospel Church in Oakland, California. "We want to keep our parishioners safe. And I believe that with all my heart. But at the same time, my goodness, the restrictions are so tough!" From war to natural disasters to health emergencies, the nation has embraced -- or chafed -- at government oversight during a national crisis. Examples include: -- The suspension of habeas corpus during the Civil War to the forced internment of Japanese-Americans in World War Two- -- Monthslong curfews in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina -- And now, the COVID-19 pandemic....
