Fashion retailer Tailored Brands emerges from bankruptcy protection

December 2, 2020

(Reuters) – Tailored Brands said on Tuesday it has emerged from bankruptcy protection following a financial restructuring process that helped the U.S. men’s fashion retailer eliminate $686 million of debt from its balance sheet.

The Houston-based company in August filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, joining a list of brick-and-mortar retailers succumbing to the hit from the COVID-19 pandemic.

It confirmed a restructuring plan last month that consisted of a $430 million lending facility.

Tailored Brands said on Tuesday it now operates with a capital structure that includes an exit term loan of $365 million, which it expects will support its ongoing operations and strategic initiatives.

The company in July announced plans to cut its workforce by 20% and shut as many as 500 stores, in response to the impact of the pandemic.

Bushfires threaten tourist areas on Australia’s Fraser Island

December 2, 2020

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australian fire crews are battling massive bushfires on Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island, which have been burning for six weeks, forcing tourists to flee the island off the northeast coast.

The fires have razed more than 76,000 hectares (187,800 acres), nearly half of the island, which is world heritage listed for its tropical rain forests and sand dunes.

“Conditions remain unpredictable and can change rapidly,” the state’s emergency services said in a statement, adding that guests and staff at one of the island’s largest resorts should be prepared to leave anytime.

Several guests were ferried off the island, also known by its indigenous name K’gari, on Tuesday as weather conditions worsened, Australian media reported.

More than 1 million litres of water and fire-retardant gel have been dropped on the fires since Saturday, the Queensland state fire department said.

“I think its frustrating for everybody, the fact that a campfire has started this fire. Having the impact that it has had, it started in a very, very remote part of the island… really difficult to access,” Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Deputy Commissioner Mike Wassing told Nine News.

Australia is baking through a major heat wave, which has been building across the country’s outback interior over the last week and now shifting to the northeast.

Though moist conditions during the year have generally limited the threat from fires that devastated the country during the last fire season.

Last summer’s bush fires razed more than 11 million hectares (37 million acres) of bushland, killing 33 people and billions of native animals, a disaster that Prime Minister Scott Morrison called Australia’s “black summer”.

Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology forecast intense heat wave conditions in the inland areas of Queensland state on Wednesday with temperatures expected to be well above 40 degree Celsius (104 degree Fahrenheit) but sea breezes will keep the weather cooler close to the coast.

Total fire bans have been enforced in several parts of the northeast amid the first major heat wave of Australia’s bush fire season, which usually runs from late southern hemisphere spring through summer.

From hijabs to cosplay, Indonesian finds calling in cat fashion makeovers

December 2, 2020

By Yuddy Budiman Cahya

BOGOR, Indonesia (Reuters) – It may not be haute couture, but former Indonesian school teacher turned tailor Fredi Lugina Priadi has found a lucrative market for his cat fashions, creating unique costumes and cosplay outfits for cats.

After quitting his job as a teacher, he tried his hand at a number of businesses, including running a motorbike repair shop, before stumbling upon cat fashions, an idea from one of his cat-loving cousins.

The 39-year-old now supplies outfits to picky pet owners looking to dress their felines in everything from superhero outfits for figures like Thor and Superman to cosplay characters, nurse uniforms and even traditional Islamic wear.

“At first, my cousins who love cats gave me the idea to make these costumes and I thought it was weird,” said Fredi.

“But it turned out to be funny to see them with costumes,” he said, speaking from his rustic workshop with a sewing machine in Bogor just south of the capital Jakarta .

    Since setting up his online business three years ago, he now generates up to 3 million rupiah ($210) a month if he sells at least four pieces a day. Each outfit is priced at between $6 to $10. 

    Customer Risma Sandra Irawan has bought at least 30 outfits for her cat Sogan and puts in orders for special occasions like the Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr or at Christmas.

    “Its for fun only…it can relieve our stress,” said Risma, who created an account on social media platform TikTok showing off Sogan’s outfits that has more than 50,000 followers.

While many find it cute, Fredi has received some negative comments on social media from those who consider it cruel to dress up a cat and he advises buyers not to make their pet wear an outfit for too long.

Indeed, in the wake of a boom in social media postings of pets dressed up, often in increasingly bizarre poses or outfits, some animal welfare groups have issued guidelines to make owners more aware of any signs that it may be causing their pet distress.

Authorities and real estate developers in New York City unveiled their official guidelines for viewing the Rockefeller Christmas Tree this year; limiting guests to just five minutes at the legendary tourist attraction while being separated in isolation “pods.”

“Those who hope to get a glimpse of the tree this year will be required to do so while spaced 6 feet apart and stationed at designated viewing pods. Each pod will hold a maximum of four people,” reports The Hill.

This years viewing of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will be limited to just five minutes.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and the real estate company that owns Rockefeller Center, Tishman Speyer, on Monday released new coronavirus-friendly guidelines for visitors, which included the limit on viewing time, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Those who hope to get a glimpse of the tree this year will be required to do so while spaced 6 feet apart and stationed at designated viewing pods. Each pod will hold a maximum of four people.

While the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony usually draws a large crowd, residents are being asked this year to view it on NBC on Wednesday, the Journal noted.

“That’s the best way to see it, to feel that moment,” de Blasio said

Visitors will be able to view the tree in person starting Thursday. The tree will be lighted from 6 a.m. to midnight daily through the beginning of January.

The tree, which some Twitter users have compared to the small, unattractive tree in “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” has already generated headlines this year after an owl was discovered living in it last month. The bird was later rescued from the tree and released back into the wild.

It’s not censorship, it’s ‘positive change’: Red Cross chief says social media should promote ‘the right information’ on vaccines

With the Red Cross warning governments to clamp down on a “second pandemic” of misinformation, the organization’s health and care chief told RT that he’s not demanding censorship, but pushing for “positive change.”

The first batches of Covid-19 vaccines are on the cusp of availability, but International Federation of Red Cross President Francesco Rocca said that a “second pandemic” of “fake news” about vaccines might turn the public off getting the jab.

“We believe that the massive coordinated effort that will be needed to roll out the Covid vaccine in an equitable manner, needs to be paralleled by equally massive efforts to proactively build and protect trust,” he told the UN Correspondents Association on Monday.

All vaccines, including the new Covid ones, carry a tiny risk of serious side effects. But does that mean we shouldn’t take them?

Whether stemming from concerns about their long-term side effects, skepticism over their rapid development process, or online conspiracy theories, coronavirus vaccines have not inspired widespread confidence. In a quarter of countries his organization surveyed, vaccine acceptance was around 50 percent. Nearly half of US adults say they’ll definitely or probably not take a vaccine, while more than a third of people in the UK will refuse the shot.

Emanuele Capobianco, head of health and care at the IFRC lamed the public’s lukewarm enthusiasm on “fake news” from the “anti-vaxx movement.” 

Speaking to RT on Tuesday, Capobianco said that governments and scientists need to work on “correcting misinformation” and convincing the public that vaccines are “effective and safe.”

Capobianco denied that he was suggesting that people be forced to take a vaccine, nor was he asking for a ban on vaccine-skeptic content online. Instead, he said that governments and social media companies should focus on “sharing the right information as widely as possible.” He singled out tech companies as having the potential to be “agents of positive change.” 

Yet these companies have explicitly banned vaccine-skeptic content. YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have all partnered up with governments to fight “the wave of false claims” surrounding the virus, with Facebook and YouTube both removing “misinformation” on the disease and vaccines. 

Of course, any effort to limit the spread of vaccine “misinformation” runs the risk of backfiring spectacularly. YouTube and Facebook learned this first-hand back in May when they pulled conspiracy documentary ‘Plandemic’ from their platforms. The ban only increased interest in the film, and a book by its subject shot straight into third place on the New York Times’ bestsellers list.

NRSC Raises ‘Unprecedented’ $75 Million for Pivotal Georgia Senate Elections

NRSC Raises ‘Unprecedented’ $75 Million for Pivotal Georgia Senate Elections

ATLANTA — National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Todd Young (R-IN) announced on Tuesday that the organization raised an “unprecedented” $75 million in fundraising ahead of the pivotal Georgia Senate runoffs.

Young announced the NRSC’s significant fundraising haul during the Senate GOP’s weekly luncheon, which was conducted via conference call.

The NRSC chairman noted that much of the fundraising haul, which was raised from October 15 to November 23, will be focused on reelecting Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA).

Perdue and Loeffler hope to stave off challenges from Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in January.

Young said during the call, “We are working hand in glove with the Perdue and Loeffler teams to make sure we are successful, and if we win these races, we save the country.”

Reelecting Perdue and Loeffler would ensure that that the Senate majority does not fall into Democrat hands. If both Georgia conservatives were to lose in January, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the likely vice president, would become the tie-breaking vote in the Senate.

This has raised the stakes for the Georgia Senate elections.

Subsequently, Republicans, Democrats, and outside PACs have already spent roughly $300 million in ads.
