NEW YORK (AP) — With help from Lizzo, Travis Scott, Rosalia and some of the biggest names in modeling, Rihanna said she decided to forge ahead with a new digital-only Savage X Fenty lingerie show to bring something good into a troubled world. Insofar as well-priced intimates in a broad range of sizes can achieve that goal. “There's a lot going on in the world right now and I relate to all of it,” the superstar and fashion icon told The Associated Press during a recent round of interviews. “People need a little bit of hope, they need a little bit of happiness, and if we can bring a smile to their face and a little bit of fun while they're stuck at home, it's a desire and an honor to be a part of that.” The Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 2, with musical performances and dancers along with models, was filmed in September in Los Angeles and will drop Friday exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories. It’s the line’s second turn on the streaming platform. Rihanna has quickly made a name for the company, launching Savage X Fenty in 2018 with splashy, performance-based shows before large (very excited) live crowds. For the first time, there's something for men, thanks to Christian Combs' appearance in last year's show with chunky bling around his neck, a bare chest and some ultra-tight skivvies as a disembodied voice purred: “Dirty. Nasty. Dirty. Nasty.” Combs designed some boxers worthy of all gender expressions to debut with pajamas and trunks in knits and satin for the Fall 2020 collection, all of which will be available for purchase Friday onAmazon Fashionand SavageX.com. “I didn’t want this to be a boxers-are-for-men type situation and then we have to make a female version," said Rihanna, dressed in plunging black leather and fishnet stockings with large crosses around her neck. “I love wearing boxer briefs and when I saw him wear them in the show last year, a lot of people were really excited, our customers were excited.” Rihanna has proven her commitment to inclusive representation when presenting Savage X Fenty in her use of models in a range of sizes and shapes and across a broad spectrum of skin tones. Since the beginning, the line has been available from 32A to 42H in bras and XS to 3X in undies and sleepwear. In addition to Combs' contributions, new looks for her third Savage X Fenty show include her own doodles embroidered into some pieces, along with lacy lingerie with oversize floral designs and high-voltage color in silhouettes and styles intended for day-to-night wear. Other performers include Bad Bunny, with Combs, Rihanna pal Cara Delevingne, Bella Hadid, Big Sean, Normani and Irina Shayk among her models. Willow Smith, Paris Hilton and Demi Moore will model as newcomers this year. Like Savage X Fenty, Rihanna's embrace of diversity was expressed in 2017, when she launched Fenty Beauty with 40 shades of matte foundation, from the palest of pale to deep, deep brown with cool undertones. The company has been wildly successful, and her offerings have expanded, including a skin care line, Fenty Skin. She's also been busy regularly rolling out luxury wear for Fenty at LVMH. Savage X Fenty, Rihanna said, is “one of those spaces” where “inclusivity is part of the brand, always." As the Black Lives Matter movement and fight for social justice continue to play out throughout the USand the world, she said she'll continue to build on her commitment. “We don't believe in division. We do not believe in excluding anyone," she said. “That's been our message from day one and it's not going to change now because everyone is having that realisation." Rihanna added: “We started this company on a Black woman's back.”

Working from home makes us sedentary which results in all sorts of issues. Photo: iStock

Many of us have been working from home for months thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. And while avoiding early morning traffic and not having to get all dressed up every day is nice, remote work has made us more sedentary than usual. Gone are the mid-morning walks to buy coffee and the lunch time walks to look for food and, for those who don’t drive, the walks to and from the taxi, maxi or bus. Working from home means working longer hours for many, sitting at your desk or couch or wherever is most comfortable in your house. Sure, we might get up occasionally to prepare meals or make sure the kids are paying attention in online class, but the amount of steps we take now aren’t anywhere close to what we did before. As a result, some of us may be feeling a little stiffness in our hips when we walk, or dealing with a nagging pain in our necks or even battling headaches. If this sounds familiar, here are some solutions Coach Nico of Urban Fitness gave us. Take micro-breaks Give your eyes and body a rest with little breaks throughout the day. Coach Nico says you can set alarms every hour on your phone to remind you to put down your work and get up just to stretch or do an activity. Exercise Sitting for too long everyday can result in stiff muscles. Dedicate some time each day to get moving through exercise. Go for a walk, stretch your muscles with some yoga or look for simple exercises to do at home to address specific issues you may be experiencing. Coach Nico says stretching exercises such as bridges help with your lower back and hip flexors. Invest in the right furniture Sitting in the wrong chair can affect your posture and staring down at your laptop could affect your neck. Buy an ergonomic chair or if you can't afford one, place a pillow on a dining chair. That helps with circulation for the back of your legs says Coach Nico. If you are in a meeting and cannot get up, remind yourself to do some circulation movements. Coach Nico advises that you can rotate your ankles and stretch out your legsfor example. Train yourself to have good posture Coach Nico says good posture can help you to avoid a lot of problems. Train yourself to sit properly by placingcues around to remind you. You could also use astanding desk to do your work or look for one of those laptop standsthat allows you to elevate your laptop so you can get some relief. If you can’t afford anything, use a stack of books or a small box to keep your laptop at eye-level. Get good lighting To avoid straining your eyes, invest in a good lamp or brighter lightsor try to position your workspace in an area with natural light.

The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) is calling on Caribbean nations as biodiversity hotspots to commit to the United Nations Leaders' Pledge for Nature to reduce biodiversity loss by 2030. In a statement, CANARI so far, Belize is the only country from the region to sign the global pledge, where 70 government have committed to reversing biodiversity loss by 2030. The pledge comes ahead of the United Nations Summit on Biodiversityon September 30, 2020 under the theme of ‘Urgent action on biodiversity for sustainable development’, which will be attended by Heads of State and Government. 'The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) commends the leadership shown by Belize and is calling on other Caribbean Governments to galvanise political commitment to invest in the health of our planet as an investment in our own future.' 'The Caribbean is one of the 36 biodiversity hotspots in the world and nature continues to be key for the region’s approximately 44 million people.' 'Belize is the only country from the region which has so far signed the global ‘Leaders Pledge for Nature’ where 70 governments have committed to reversing biodiversity loss by 2030.' Wilfred Elrington, Attorney General and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belize, said the projected loss of biodiversity is a planetary emergency:'Issues such as food, water, energy security and human health and welfare are inextricably linked to biodiversity.The biodiversity loss projected to occur warns of an impending planetary emergency which demands urgent action.' CANARI’s Executive Director, Nicole Leotaud, said:“Protecting nature must be at the heart of Caribbean COVID-19 recovery and climate resilience and we need strong leadership to prioritise biodiversity conservation as a central pillar in Caribbean development. There is strong commitment and action by civil society and local communities to protect biodiversity and nature-based livelihoods, but more needs to be done at the political level.” CANARI said it recently provided technical support to the CARICOM Secretariat and the OECS Commission to develop regional and sub-regional biodiversity strategies 'which recognise that the Caribbean’s rich biodiversity and natural heritage must be conserved and used sustainably, to support economic development and sustainable livelihoods for the well-being and benefit of Caribbean people'. 'Adoption and implementation of these strategies will support a whole-of-society approach in the Caribbean to addressing the global biodiversity crisis.' CANARI said it has been working over the past 30 years to enhance stewardship of natural resources. 'Over the past five years alone, CANARI worked with Caribbean stakeholders to implement 39 projects worth over US$7.3 million in more than 20 countries and territories across the Caribbean. CANARI’s work has ranged from facilitating participatory development of national and sectoral policies and plans, to supporting on the ground conservation by civil society and community groups, and nature-based community microenterprises.' The United Nations Summit on Biodiversity focuses on raising ambition for the new global biodiversity framework being developed, recognising the very disappointing progress made at the end of the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity 2011-2020. The recently published Global Biodiversity Outlook 5 noted that the world has failed to meet a single target to stem the continuing destruction of life-sustaining ecosystems and biodiversity. The group said six of the 20 targets have been partially achieved, with progress being made, for example, in developing policies to support biodiversity conservation, designating protected areas and eradicating invasive alien species from islands. However, the report notes that areas “relating to the drivers of biodiversity loss, and to the current state of biodiversity itself, mostly show significantly worsening trends.” There are an estimated one million threatened species, and on average species continue to move closer to extinction. Most ecosystem services (nature’s contribution to people) are in decline. The group said: 'This gloomy picture is mirrored in the Caribbean where biodiversity is the foundation of key economic sectors such as tourism, supports agriculture and fisheries for food security, facilitates water security, builds resilience to the impacts of climate change and storms, and supports livelihoods of the poor and vulnerable.' 'Worryingly, the report notes that, “The projected decline in biodiversity will affect all people, but it will have a particularly detrimental effect on indigenous peoples and local communities, and the world’s poor and vulnerable, given their reliance on biodiversity for their wellbeing.”' CANARI said it reaffirms its commitment to supporting vulnerable local communities in the Caribbean who depend on nature for their livelihoods and calls on political leaders to increase their ambition to address the biodiversity crisis, alongside the climate and COVID-19 crises, to protect these communities who are most at risk.


The Slay Network is looking to 'slay-power' everyone from the ills of COVID-19. (Photo: via Instagram)

Save the date in your G-Calendars because the team at Jus Slay Beauty Bar are prepping for their virtual slay affair. ‘The slay shall return’, and ‘Be the woman you needed as a girl’, are two of the taglines touted for the inaugural slay convention, encouraging females to embrace their fabulosity in all areas of their lives. The Slay Network was conceptualised by Tamara McPherson, the reigning Festival Queen of St Elizabeth, and past president for the Rotaract Club of Liguanea Plains. [image_gallery] It is expected to provide a meeting space for women between the ages of 18 and 40 who will discuss topics such as personal finance and mortgages, health and wellness, beauty and skin care, relationships, travel and spirituality, and mindfulness. The work McPherson did at Jus Slayed Beauty Bar – which she dubbed a virtual beauty store – has evolved into a more wholesome response to the impact of COVID. Indeed, this is something for the community, to ‘provide hope’ and uplift other females in hopes that they ‘resurface [from the ills of the pandemic] as lionesses’. McPherson pooled her resources to handpick a group of female specialists to discuss varying topics. The ‘slay-powerment’ sessions will be moderated by Amanda Spencer. The specialists include Anna Palomino on finance and real estate; Dianne O Brown on health and wellness; beauty and skin care by Teeah Anderson; entrepreneurship and financial independence by Shereka McGhie and Sannicia Coward; and intimacy and relationship from Caleen Deidrick and Matthew Ricketts. Jus Slay Beauty Bar and the annual Essence Festival of Culture, more popularly known as Essence Fest are the reference points for the slay convention. McPherson, who dreams of one day presenting at Essence Fest, is enthusiastic about The Slay Convention: ‘…this is my first time hosting an event, and nobody has said no yet’. ‘It’s a slay-powerment, not an empowerment,’ she hastened to correct. And, with all the female empowerment conferences on the market, Loop Lifestyle was curious to what separates The Slay Network from the others. McPherson noted that the typical conference is unattainable and costly, so ‘the average Jane can’t attend’. She also mentioned a particular stigma associated with a number of the empowerment sessions available today, that they are spearheaded by ‘mean girls’. ‘We’re trying to create a safe space where all women are invited, once you’re looking to live a wholesome life, this is where you need to be to access quality advice and information.’ The Slay Network is made possible with the support ofUbora Brands Ja Ltd,Goals Professional Services, MCM Event Styling,Cutdiline/Door Step Ja, andMa I's Spice. Registration for the October 4 virtual conference can be done at here, and contact The Slay Network at: Tel: +1 (876) 389-0957 e-mail: shopjusslay@gmail.com Social handle: @shopjusslay

Squeezed by limits on attendance at its theme parks and other restrictions due to the pandemic, The Walt Disney Co. said Tuesday it planned to lay off 28,000 workers in its parks division in California and Florida. Two-thirds of the planned layoffs involve part-time workers but they ranged from salaried employees to nonunion hourly workers, Disney officials said. Disney’s parks closed last spring as the pandemic started spreading in the U.S. The Florida parks reopened this summer, but the California parks have yet to reopen as the company awaits guidance from the state of California.

Timothy Ray Brown, who made history as "the Berlin patient," the first person known to be cured of HIV infection, has died. He was 54. Brown died Tuesday at his home in Palm Springs, California, according to a social media post by his partner, Tim Hoeffgen. The cause was a return of the cancer that originally prompted the unusual bone marrow and stem cell transplants Brown received in 2007 and 2008, which for years seemed to have eliminated both his leukaemia and HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. "Timothy symbolized that it is possible, under special circumstances," to rid a patient of HIV -- something that many scientists had doubted could be done, said Dr Gero Huetter, the Berlin physician who led Brown's historic treatment. "It's a very sad situation" that cancer returned and took his life, because he still seemed free of HIV, said Huetter, who is now medical director of a stem cell company in Dresden, Germany. The International AIDS Society, which had Brown speak at an AIDS conference after his successful treatment, issued a statement mourning his death and said he and Huetter are owed "a great deal of gratitude" for promoting research on a cure. Brown was working in Berlin as a translator when he was diagnosed with HIV and then later, leukaemia. Transplants are known to be an effective treatment for the blood cancer, but Huetter wanted to try to cure the HIV infection as well by using a donor with a rare gene mutation that gives natural resistance to the AIDS virus. Brown's first transplant in 2007 was only partly successful: His HIV seemed to be gone but his leukaemia was not. He had a second transplant from the same donor in 2008 and that one seemed to work. But his cancer returned last year, Brown said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. "I'm still glad that I had it," he said of his transplant. "It opened up doors that weren't there before" and inspired scientists to work harder to find a cure, Brown said. A second man, Adam Castillejo -- called "the London patient" until he revealed his identity earlier this year -- also is believed to have been cured by a transplant similar to Brown's in 2016. Because such donors are rare and transplants are medically risky, researchers have been testing gene therapy and other ways to try to get a similar effect. At an AIDS conference in July, researchers said they may have achieved a long-term remission in a Brazil man by using a powerful combination of drugs meant to flush dormant HIV from his body. Mark King, a Baltimore man who writes a blog, said Brown "was just this magnet for people living with HIV, like me," and embodied the hope for a cure. "He has said from the beginning, 'I don't want to be the only one. They have to keep working on this,'" King said.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday didn’t condemn white supremacist groups and their role in violence in some American cities this summer, branding it solely a “left-wing” problem and telling one far-right extremist group to “stand back and stand by.” “Almost everything I see is from the left-wing, not from the right-wing," said Trump, whose exchange with Democrat Joe Biden left the extremist group Proud Boys celebrating what some of its members saw as tacit approval. He was responding to a question from debate moderator Chris Wallace, who asked the president if he would condemn white supremacist and militia groups that have shown up at some protests. Wallace specifically mentioned Kenosha, Wisconsin, where a white teenager was charged with killing two protesters during demonstrations over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Trump has repeatedly blamed “Antifa,” which stands for the anti-fascist movement. “I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace," Trump said. “What do you want to call them? Give me a name." “Proud Boys,” Democrat Joe Biden chimed in, referencing a far-right extremist group that has shown up at protests in the Pacific Northwest. The male-only group of neo-fascists describes themselves as “western chauvinists,” and they have been known to incite street violence. “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by,” Trump said. “But I’ll tell you what, I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left because this is not a right-wing problem.” FBI Director Christopher Wray told a congressional panel last week, though, that white supremacists and anti-government extremists have been responsible for most of the recent deadly attacks by extremist groups within the U.S. Trump, a Republican, has tried to tie incidents of violence that have accompanied largely peaceful protests to Biden and the Democrats, running on a “law and order" message that warns people won't be safe under a Democratic president. It's a message aimed squarely at white suburban voters, including women who voted for Trump in 2016 but may not do so again. “What we saw was a dog whistle through a bullhorn,” California Senator Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, said on MSNBC after the debate. “Donald Trump is not pretending to be anything other than what he is: Someone who will not condemn white supremacists.” Proud Boys leaders and supporters later celebrated the president’s words on social media. A channel on Telegram, an instant messaging service, with more than 5,000 of the group’s members posted “Stand Back” and “Stand By” above and below the group’s logo. Biden has said he decided to run for president after Trump said there were “very fine people" on both sides of a 2017 protest led by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a counterprotester was killed. Trump said Tuesday that Biden was afraid to say the words “law and order" and pressed him to give examples of law enforcement groups that back his campaign. Biden didn't name any, but said he's in favour of “law and order with justice, where people get treated fairly." Biden called Antifa “an idea, not an organization.” That’s similar to how Wray described it, though Trump has called on the federal government to characterize Antifa as a terrorist organization. At another point in the debate, when discussing a Trump administration move to end racial sensitivity training in the federal government, Biden directly called Trump a racist. He also accused him of trying to sow racist hatred and racist division in the country.


West Indies fast bowler Shamilia Connell ended with career-best figures of three for 14 to take home the Player-of-the-Match award in the fifth and final T20I match against England, in Derby, on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

West Indies women failed to avoid a Twenty20 series whitewash against Englandwomen as the Caribbean side went down by three wickets in a truncated fifth and final match in Derby on Wednesday. The match was reduced to five overs per side after rain delayed the start of play by just over two hours.This was the first time a women's international Twenty20 match has been reduced to five overs per side. West Indies, sent in to bat, posted 41 for threefrom their five overs. Deandra Dottin made 11 off seven balls including an historic six, which was the 100th of her T20I career. She becamethe first woman to achieve thatmilestone. England replied with 42 for seven after they were struggling at five for two after fast bowler Shamilia Connell removedcaptain Heather Knight (four) and Amy Jones (0) in the opening over. Stafanie Taylor-side turned in a much-improved bowling and fielding display, which left England needing seven runs from the final six balls. England, though, had consecutive run-outs to leave the match interestingly poised.But with England requiring a run a ball to win,Shakera Selman bowled two no-balls in the final over. First, Shebowled a front-foot no-ball, allowing Sophia Dunkley to scramble a single and giving England an extra run, taking the target down to one run from three balls. Then, aimingfor a yorker on the free hit, Selman bowled a head-high full toss, handingEngland a 5-0 series win. Connell was the best bowler for West Indies. The strongly-built fast bowler ended with career-best figures of three for 14 to take home thePlayer-of-the-Matchaward.

In this congested season like no other, coaches are typically using the English League Cup to rest and rotate key players. Not Pep Guardiola. The Manchester City manager fielded all of his top available stars against Burnley on Wednesday in a bid to stay on course for a fourth straight title in the competition, and it paid off. Raheem Sterling scored twice, offseason signing Ferran Torres added the third, and Kevin De Bruyne ran the game in City’s 3-0 win in a one-sided last-16 match. Manchester United, Everton and Newcastle also advanced to the quarterfinals, joining Tottenham after theirpenalty-shootout win over Chelseaon Tuesday. Determined to win any trophy going, Guardiola might have also wanted City to rediscover some rhythm after a wild 5-2 loss to Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday — one of his heaviest defeats as a manager. His team did just that, with Sterling looking more at home as a makeshift central striker — in the absence of the injured Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus — than he did against Leicester. The England international could have had two or three goals before opening the scoring in the 35th minute by lashing in a left-footed finish from Benjamin Mendy’s cross. Torres squared the ball across the face of goal to set up Sterling for a simple second goal in the 49th, and the roles were reversed in the 65th as Torres ran through to curl home a finish with aplomb for his first goal since joining from Valencia in August. “It was for the rhythm, and because these players wanted to play,” Guardiola said of his strong team selection. "This competition is special to us and there is just two games — this one and Leeds (in the league) on Saturday — before the international break. After our result (on Sunday), it was important today.” City havewon five of the last seven editions of the League Cup. One more triumph will draw the team level on overall League Cup titles with Liverpool, which havecaptured it eight times. UNITED STROLL Unlike Guardiola, Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fielded a lineup full of fringe players but it was still enough to see off Brighton 3-0 in the teams' second meeting in four days. While the first game was decided by a 100th-minute penalty by Bruno Fernandes on Saturday, United had the cup match wrapped up much earlier thanks to a 44th-minute header by Scott McTominay, a low finish by Juan Mata in the 73rd, and a deflected free kick by substitute Paul Pogba in the 80th. Mata, a 32-year-old playmaker firmly down the pecking order at United these days, was the team's outstanding player. He also set up McTominay's goal. “I feel good physically and mentally, and have a passion for the game," Mata said. "I have a lot of football left in my legs and my mind.” Dean Henderson pulled off a couple of great saves for United — particularly one down low to deny Leandro Trossard in the second half, when the score was 1-0 — to show he is in prime shape to come in for long-time goalkeeper David De Gea if ever needed. COSTLY WIN Everton's 4-1 win over West Ham — secured by a second hat trick of the season by Dominic Calvert-Lewin — came at a cost. Richarlison and Allan, two Brazilians who have been key to the team's perfect start to the season in the Premier League, went off injured in the second half. Allan, the midfield anchorman signed from Napoli in the offseason, looked particularly seriously as he indicated a tear to his left groin muscle before being helped off the field. Calvert-Lewin took his haul of goals this season to eight in five games by opening the scoring in the 11th and adding more goals in the final 12 minutes. He also scored a hat trick in Everton's other home game so far, against West Bromwich Albion in the league. Richarlison scored Everton's other before hobbling off with an apparent ankle injury that he initially tried to run off. Everton haveopened a season with six straight wins in all competitions for the first time since 1938. UPSET AVOIDED Fourth-tier Newport werelooking to reach the last eight for the first time in their108-year history, and wereon course to do so at the expense of Newcastle heading into the 87th minute. Newcastle avoided a major upset, though, as Jonjo Shelvey took the game to spot kicks with a curling shot into the top corner to make it 1-1. Newcastle then recovered after an early miss by Joelinton in the shootout to prevail 5-4.
