PARIS, June 25 (Reuters) – Hermès (HRMS.PA) swept a tree-lined runway for its menswear presentation on Saturday, sending models wearing seahorse-patterned polo shirts, glittering windbreakers to bright colors and big travel bags for a summer getaway. .

Held in the open-air grounds of the Gobelins tapestry workshops in central Paris, the show opened with a sweater depicting a vibrant sunset. It was paired with dark shorts and neoprene sandals, a teasing nod to the rain-threatening Parisian sky.

There is a succession of minimalist pants and shorts, but also jackets in lilac, pink and orange technical canvas, straight zipped jackets and cashmere high-neck sweaters.

Models casually wore the brand’s Haut à sling bags, the ancestor of the iconic Kelly and Birkin handbags, which seemed to sprout at the end of their arms.

Originally designed in the early 20th century to carry horse saddles and riding boots, the designer bag has taken on a more contemporary twist with a distorted plaid pattern.

Véronique Nichanian, at the helm of the menswear line since 1988 – an eternity in the ever-changing world of fashion – sought to convey a “sensation of lightness that floats in the sun”, as described in the show notes.

When the temperatures rise and the sun makes an occasional appearance, and the calendar turns to July, there are two thoughts that cross my mind.

The first is the old song “In the Good Old Summertime”, which conjures up images of fun in the sun, walks along the beaches, recreation and so many traditional images that summer conjures up.

The other is Alice Cooper’s “Schools Out for Summer,” which is a much tougher, but timely, musical journey through the summer months.

For me, summer, while inviting, conjures up perhaps less traditional images. Yes, there are ads for air conditioners or children swimming in a pool.

A NYSEG advertisement promoting the purchase of air conditioners in the early 1960s.

As a farmer’s child, summer was hay season. In my early teens, I used to wear thick long-sleeved shirts, long jeans, a hat and gloves while the whole family worked to bring hay from my father’s cows to a barn that was in less than perfect condition.

My mother drove the tractor a little jerkily, while my father and my brother threw me the bales of hay on a cart with big holes in its floor that had to be avoided. I stacked the bales so that the cart full of scooped hay could be taken back to the barn and unloaded. We didn’t have machines to unload the hay – no, everything was done by hand.

At the end of each of those hot, dry summer days, we would have drank from coolers full of water and removed slivers of hay stuck in our wrists while blowing black hay dust from our noses.

Farmers work to bring hay in rural Broome County during the summer, circa 1915.

If this picture doesn’t look glamorous, it wasn’t. It was hot, hard work. I’m not sure the cows really enjoyed the work. It was a scene, however, that was repeated countless times in our region, as farms large and small, with varying levels of automation, relied on family workers and hired hands to cut hay. , bale it (in old traditional rectangular bales), and pile them inside barns for use during the winter months.

The highlight of Canterbury Park’s stakes schedule is Wednesday, when the Minnesota track hosts the $150,000 Mystic Lake Derbywhich anchors a six-stake pack that includes five turf stakes – all with 12-horsepower fields before the stripes.
The feature film attracted the winner of the Caesars Stakes Sewn as well as its driver on the last outing, Florent Geroux, who takes part in the five turf races on Wednesday in Canterbury.

Stitched is one of five Kentucky-based shippers in the Mystic Lake Derby. Trained at Churchill Downs by Greg Foley, Stitched was shipped off to Horseshoe Indianapolis for the final time and won the Caesars in gate-to-wire fashion.

The Mizzen Mast colt has won 4 out of 7 and is the 5-2 morning line favorite for the final leg of the multi-stakes Pick 5, which includes a 10% out.

Kicking off the multi-race action is the first of four $100,000 stakes races and the Mystic Lake Derby’s complement, the Curtis Sampson Oaks.

With 12 horses in each stage, the number of combinations available is 248,832. And with only 10% takeaways, this promises to be one of the best opportunities for horse players all year round.

Four of the five turf stakes are a mile away, and the HRN Track Trends Tool gives slight preferences to irons or inside runners, but nothing better than horses should overcome.

The betting menu is robust beyond Pick 5 at all stakes. The later Pick 5 (races 6-10) also features this low 10% pullback, as does the early (post-time) Pick 4 (races 1-4). There is also pick 4 all-stakes (races 5-8), rolling Pick 3s and rolling doubles.

goth baby Lydia Deetz and her spiky baby bangs and tousled bun prove to be beauty inspiration for fashion girls. The look started creeping into our lives in February when Alexa Half sported pointed bangs to The cupit is Euphoria cast iron turning. Courtesy of Evanie Fraustojet black hair and choppy, parted bangs couldn’t help but be compared to the iconic beetle juice hairdressing.

Hot on the heels of Demie came Billie Eilish, who swapped her platinum blonde hair for black at the Grammys in April. The sketchy, blunt bangs and spiky ’90s bun screamed Lydia Deetz, as did the hairstyle Eilish wore for the Met Gala the next month. While the bangs may have been thinner, the back was certainly pointed enough to draw comparisons to Winona Ryder’s character — and a lot of people just do that.

But the tributes don’t stop there. Yesterday, Beyonce revealed it last cover with British vogue, before new music arrives next month. Photographed by Rafael Pavarotti, the shoot sees the majestic singer pose on various props, including a huge disco ball and a horse. In one picture, hairdresser Jawara gave the singer very uneven zigzag bangs. Amidst the utter opulence of the crystal-encrusted gold-tone Schiaparelli Haute Couture coat and earrings, the fringe provides a nice, bolder contrast. A mix between beetle juice and the haircut a toddler could give himself if handed a pair of scissors.

Although there has been a sudden influx of Lydia Deetz hair this year, the look has already inspired the fashion world. For her A/W 2020 fashion show, Haider Ackerman sent Bella Hadid down the catwalk in a huge black puffy wig with very spiky baby bangs. The look was completed with bleached eyebrows and a ghostly complexion.

Despite pressure, states are slow to make Juneteenth a paid holiday https://ohalloranco.com/despite-pressure-states-are-slow-to-make-juneteenth-a-paid-holiday/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 20:21:00 +0000 https://ohalloranco.com/despite-pressure-states-are-slow-to-make-juneteenth-a-paid-holiday/ NASHVILLE, Tenn.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Recognition of June 19the effective end of slavery in the United States, gained traction after the police killing of George Floyd in 2020. But after an initial flurry of action, the movement to have it recognized as an official holiday in the states United States is largely at a standstill.

Although nearly every state recognizes June 19 in one way or another, many have been slow to do more than issue a proclamation or resolution, although some continue to commemorate the Confederacy.

Lawmakers in Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and other states did not introduce proposals this year that would have closed state offices and given most of their public employees paid leave for the holidays of June 19.

This trend infuriates black leaders and community organizers who view Juneteenth as a paid holiday, the bare minimum that state officials can do to help honor an often overlooked and ignored part of American history.

“Juneteenth marks a date of major significance in American history. It represents the ways in which black freedom has been delayed,” said Democratic Rep. Anthony Nolan, who is black, while arguing for making Juneteenth a paid holiday in Connecticut on the House floor “And if we delay that, it’s a blow to black people.”

June 19 commemorates when Union soldiers announced freedom to enslaved black people in Galveston, Texas in 1865, two months after the Confederacy surrendered in the Civil War and about 2½ years after the Emancipation Proclamation that freed slaves in the Southern states.

Last year, Congress and President Joe Biden moved quickly to make June 16 a national holiday. It was the first time the federal government had designated a new national holiday since approving Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 1983. Yet that decision did not result in an automatic adoption of most states.

In Alabama, Republican Governor Kay Ivey issued another proclamation marking Juneteenth a holiday earlier this week after state lawmakers refused to take action on a bill during their legislative session, even after she voiced strong support for making it a holiday permanent in 2021. The state closes for Confederate Memorial Days in April.

Similarly, Republican Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon released a statement last June saying he would work with lawmakers to make it a holiday, but no legislation was tabled in the 2022 session.

In Tennessee, Republican Gov. Bill Lee quietly stashed away enough funds — about $700,000 — to make Juneteenth a state-paid holiday in his initial spending plan for the coming year.

Despite the the bill is gaining ground in the state Senate, GOP legislative leaders argued there was not enough support for the idea even though Tennessee law currently designates special celebrations for Robert E. Lee Day, Confederate Decoration Day and Nathan Bedford Forrest Day.

“I’ve asked many people in my district over the past few days, well over 100 people, if they know what Juneteenth is and only two of them did,” said Republican Sen. Joey Hensley, who is white and voted against the proposal. “I just think we’re putting the cart before the horse by making vacations that people don’t know about.”

In South Carolina, instead of working to approve Juneteenth as a holiday, Senate lawmakers unanimously proposed a bill which would allow state employees to choose any day of departure instead of the Confederate Memorial Day currently listed as paid leave in state law. However, the House sent the bill to committee where it died without a hearing when the legislature adjourned for the session.

At the same time, many of these Republican-led areas have advanced bills limiting what can be taught about systematic racism in classrooms, while offering proposals to expand voting rights and police reform.

This year, nearly 20 states are expected to close state offices and give most of their public employees time off. At least six states have officially adopted the holiday in recent months, including Connecticut, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, South Dakota, Utah and Washington. A bill introduced in California passed the Assembly and moved to the Senate this month, and cities like Los Angeles have already signed proclamations making Juneteenth official.

“Becoming a holiday will not only give employees a day off, it will also give residents a day to reflect on the future we want, while remembering the inequalities of the past,” said Democratic MP Andrea Harrison. , which sponsored the Juneteenth. legislation in Maryland this year. “It will help us reflect on how far we have come as a nation, how much more we need to do as humanity.”

Attempts to give Juneteenth the same deference as Memorial Day or 4th of July only began to gain traction in 2020, when protests sparked a national push to fight the race after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the deaths of other black people by police officers.

“The George Floyd protests against police brutality raised awareness in Juneteenth because there were people of all races learning about its importance for the first time following a public push to self-educate and learn more about the black history, culture and injustices,” said Tremaine Jasper, a Phoenix resident and business owner who attended June 19 celebrations across Arizona with his family.

Some Arizona cities, including Phoenix, declared June 19 a holiday, paying city workers and closing municipal buildings. However, lawmakers are not currently considering statewide recognition.

“There are so many other important issues we need to address — education, political issues, reparations — before we prioritize making June 19 a statewide holiday,” Jasper said, noting that those who looking to celebrate know where to go.

Jasper, who was born and raised in Arizona, said it would be an “uphill battle” for the state to recognize Juneteenth because there isn’t a large enough black population outside of its biggest cities to make get things done.

Arizona has also been slow to recognize Martin Luther King Jr. Day, only doing so in 1992. It was one of the last states to officially recognize the civil rights leader.

Promising mare Kurabui will return to the ring on Wednesday after suffering cardiac arrhythmia late last year.

It was worrying on Ballarat Cup day last year when Kurabui, who had won four from five in the lead, retired on the straight and was a clear miss, beaten 30 lengths behind now Group 1 winner Lighthouse .

The post-race report was concerning, with Kurabui suffering from atrial fibrillation, his heart beating well beyond normal levels.

“His heart was beating at 200 beats per minute,” said co-trainer Mick Price.

Although atrial fibrillation is not uncommon, Kurabui was a serious case according to Racing Victoria vet Jamie Wearn, who explained the nature of the condition after the race.

“His heart is not beating normally. There are abnormal beats coming from the lower half of the heart, called premature ventricular contractions,” Wearn said.

Thankfully Kurabui has fully recovered and is on track to race at Sandown on Wednesday, although Mick Price does not expect her to take another win.

“She’s cleaned it all up, she’s ready to go. We’ll get her in, there’s a few things against her. She shot the pole, no starts in heavy ground, I think she will need to run.

“Especially if she settles in midfield, they run at Sandown but they don’t win often, it will be bogged down by race 5 and pulled inside, that’s not a good recipe,” said Price.

Price also commented on stable star Ayrton, who finished 7th in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on Saturday at Eagle Farm.

“Ayrton is good at spelling. They ran 1 minute 21 seconds, and he just can’t run that fast. The first was Alligator Blood which was back to its best, the second was Private Eye. He ran credibly,” Price said.

Price pointed to Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) as a logical target, but plays with the idea of ​​keeping Ayrton at weight for age, suggesting his foot circumference would be better suited.

With the US Triple Crown season in the books, the horse racing world is focused on a penny – or in this case, ten pence – across the pond for one of the most prestigious events on the calendar. annual. The five days Royal Ascot The meet begins on Tuesday June 14 at the beautiful Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, England. The royal meeting will feature many of the UK and Ireland’s top horses for 28 races with a total of £8,702,500 (about US$10.6 million) in prize money up for grabs.

Royal Ascot is similar to major American events such as the kentucky derby and Breeders Cup World Championships in that it’s about much more than just horse racing, as the five days are filled with fashion, celebrities and a historic brand of pomp and circumstance tied to the British monarchy (the Hippodrome of Ascot was founded by Queen Anne in 1711).

While the whole Royal Ascot experience is a major draw for throngs of Britons eager to enjoy a highlight of the summer social calendar in person, for most of us the horses, TV coverage and betting are at the center of concerns. Enjoy the ABR’s guide to the 2022 Royal Ascot meeting.


When it happens:

The meet runs from Tuesday, June 14 through Saturday, June 18, with each daily card containing seven races. The first post is at 9:30 a.m. ET (2:30 p.m. local time) and the last race of each day is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET (6:10 p.m. local time).

Major races:

Eight of the 28 races at Royal Ascot are Group 1 stakes, the highest in the world. Three of them take place on opening day, June 14: the Queen Anne Stakes for horses 4 years and older; the King’s Stand Stakes for horses 3 years and older; and the St. James’ Palace Stakes for 3-year-old colts.

On Wednesday June 15, horses aged 4 and up will compete in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, and on Thursday June 16, horses aged 4 and up will face off in a true test of endurance when the Gold Cup takes place at 2 ½ mile.

Two more Group 1 stakes are scheduled for Friday June 17: the Commonwealth Cup for 3-year-old colts and fillies and the Coronation Stakes for 3-year-old fillies. And finally, on Saturday June 18, horses 4 years and older will race in the Platinum Jubilee Stakes. Tuesday’s King’s Stand Stakes is a five-stage sprint, and Platinum Jubilee Day is held at six stages – and it’s not uncommon for horses to appear in both stages in the same week.

Four races during the meeting are “Win and You Participate” Challenge Series qualifiers for the 2022 Breeders’ Cup World Championships, to be held Nov. 4-5 at Keeneland Racetrack in Lexington, Ky. The winners of these four stakes will receive a guaranteed, fee-paid spot in the grid departure for a designated Breeder’s Cup Race. The aforementioned Queen Anne Stakes and King’s Stand Stakes on Tuesday are “Win and You’re In” qualifiers for the FanDuel Breeders’ Cup Mile and Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, respectively, while Wednesday’s Prince of Wales’s Stakes are a qualifier Challenge Series for the Longines Breeders’ Cup turf.

The Group 2 Norfolk Stakes, held as the opening race on Royal Ascot’s Thursday June 16 card, is a “win and you’re in” qualifier for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint.

Where to watch:

NBC Sports will show the races from Royal Ascot, with races from Tuesday to Friday available on its Peacock streaming service and the races on Saturday June 18, broadcast live on NBC and also on Peacock, NBCSports.comand the NBC Sports app starting at 9 a.m. ET. Streaming will begin on Peacock at 8:30 a.m. ET Tuesday through Friday.

The entire Royal Ascot fixture will also be televised live each day on TVG.

How to bet:

Betting on ponies in the UK is different than in the US – you set fixed odds with a bookmaker such as Labrokes or William Hill and go from there. But there will be pari-mutuel pools for American horse players via early deposit (ADW) betting sites such as Paris NYRA, 1/ST BET, TwinSpires.comand other entities.

Don’t forget to keep jet lag in mind: most of the action during Royal Ascot week will be in the morning for East Coast players – and very early in the morning for those shooting in the Pacific time zone.

Top US-Based Horses:

The American coach with the best record at Royal Ascot is, without a doubt, Wesley Ward.

Ward began his career as a jockey and won the Eclipse Award as Outstanding Apprentice Rider in 1984. He became a trainer in the early 1990s. Over time he established a reputation as an expert in the development of 2-year-old horses and turf sprinters.

Ward has won a total of 12 races at Royal Ascot, starting with Strike the Tiger and Jealous Again on his first trip in 2009. This year he will send out a strong field of runners, headlined by the sprint sensation on Golden Pal grass. The Uncle Mo colt has already achieved a lot in just nine starts. He won both the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (2020) and the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (2021) and also finished second in the 2020 Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot in only his second career race. This gives him familiarity with the Ascot course, and Golden Pal is listed as possible for the King’s Stand Stakes on Tuesday and the Platinum Jubilee Stakes on Saturday.

Love Reigns is another Ward intern making a lot of buzz ahead of Ascot. The 2-year-old filly made her debut at Keeneland on April 29 and set off in a 5 ½ furlong sprint on grass by 9 ¾ lengths. She is due to compete in Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes, the opening race on Royal Ascot’s Wednesday card, which is five furlongs away.

And last but not least from the Ward group, the 4-year-old filly Campanelle will return to Royal Ascot for the third consecutive year… and will be looking for her third consecutive victory. In 2020, she did what Love Reigns will attempt to do this year, making her US debut and then winning the Queen Mary Stakes. Last June, she won the Commonwealth Stakes by disqualification. Now Ward is heading her into the Platinum Jubilee Stakes on Saturday. Campanelle won his season debut at Keeneland in the Giant’s Causeway Stakes by 2½ lengths. On June 7, Ward told the British At the races that three-time Eclipse Prize-winning jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. would have the mount on all his Royal Ascot horses.

Top turf trainers Christophe Clement and Graham Motion are also heading to Royal Ascot. Clement will send premier filly Pizza Bianca to the Coronation Stakes on Friday. Pizza Bianca won last fall’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf for owner Bobby Flay and earned a second-place finish on its 2022 debut with an upcoming Hilltop Stakes win at Pimlico on May 20. Clement’s Slipstream, winner of the Palisades Stakes at Keeneland in April, will also chase a Group 1 win in the Commonwealth Stakes on Friday.

Kentucky Derby winner Graham Motion from Cambridge, England has sent some fine horses to Royal Ascot on occasion, and he will have unbeaten 3-year-old filly Spendarella on hand at this year’s festival. She has raced three times in her career, all earlier this year, and already has two graded wins on her resume, the Herecomesthebride Stakes at Gulfstream Park and the Appalachian Stakes Presented by JRA at Keeneland. Spendarella will face Pizza Bianca in an unmissable Coronation Stakes on Friday.

Finally, trainer Wayne Catalano, a four-time Breeders’ Cup winner, will send his very first horse to Royal Ascot this year. Andthewinneris, an impressive first-time winner at Keeneland, will target the listed Chesham Stakes on June 18, the opening race on the final day of Ascot. The 2-year-old daughter of Oscar Performance, winner of the 2016 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf, won by a two-length widening on her 5 ½ furlong debut. It will span seven stadiums in Chesham with Irad Ortiz Jr. on board.

The Minkster wins the Coronation Futurity at Woodbine.

The $125,000 Queenston Stakes, a key build-up on the road to this year’s Queen’s Plate (August 21), is featured on Sunday’s 10-race card at Woodbine.

The seven-stage Queenston, for the three-year-old, Canadian-born, has attracted some of the top contenders hoping for a shot at Plate glory, including the unbeaten The Minkster.

Named fourth choice 7-1 in the Queen’s Plate Winterbook, The Minkster, coached by Dan Vella for owner Sea Glass Stables LLC, will make the first start of his three-year campaign at Queenston.

“He’s matured really well over the winter and he’s training better than ever,” Vella said. “He was in Ocala with Mike Cook at the Classic Mile. He was excited about him and we’re excited to do that. to run.

​Raised in Ontario by Dr. Tan Hyka, the English Channel-Cabriole son is undefeated in two career starts, including a 6¼-length stunt on the EP Taylor Course last October.

Sent on their way to 5-1, The Minkster, under David Moran, broke through inside at the start of the 6 ½ furlong grass race contested on good ground.

​Two lengths in the lead on the stretch call, the bay colt sprinted away from his rivals down the hall to take the decisive victory in a time of 1:17.19.

The Minkster then moved up the ranks on October 30, where they faced 13 rivals in the $250,000 Coronation Futurity Stakes, an 1 1/8 mile test at the Toronto Tapeta oval.

Discarded at 13-1, The Minkster, despite trailing during the stretch, clinched a 1¼ length victory in a time of 1:52.51.

“Coronation, people want to get something out of it because of the start of the race,” Vella offered. ½ furlongs on the grass to a mile and an eighth on the main track is a pretty incredible feat.

“For me, as a trainer, for a horse to go from that distance in its first run to a mile and an eighth, to comfortably win against more seasoned horses…first of all, he showed me that distance is not a problem and secondly he showed a lot of class. Very few horses have such high cruising speed. In the Coronation Futurity he was close all the way and continued as s he was hanging around. His high cruising speed and the way he completes his jobs are very impressive. So now we’ll go from here and take on the next challenge.

​Norcliffe, in 1975, was the last horse to achieve the Futurity-Plate double.

Vella, who has two Plate trophies to his name, in 1994 with Basqueian and 2012 with Strait of Dover, will look no further than Sunday’s race with his second star.

“In horse racing, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done before. Now every race is more important than the last.

Vella’s praise for The Minkster goes beyond what he offers on the circuit.

“For an English channel, and I’ve had a few, he’s pretty calm and collected. what he does. He’s a fun horse to be around. He’s got character. He’ll come at you a bit, but he doesn’t mean it. He’s pretty playful, and there are other times – that’s is very typical of English channels – where you walk into the cabin and you know he wants to be left alone.He has a strong personality, but in general he likes people.

Other starters include multi-stakes winner Ironstone, American invader Perfect Day, Sir for Sure, runner-up in last year’s Frost King Stakes, and Rondure, coached by Katerina Vassilieva, who bested her maiden way awesome last time.

The Queenston is planned as race nine. The earliest posting time is 1:10 p.m. Fans can also watch and bet on all the action via HPIbet.com and the Dark Horse Bets app.
