Washington- ESPN

Laveta Brigham

It took Alex Smith nearly two years to return to the starting lineup. It took him only two games to inject himself into the conversation over whether he can be Washington’s future quarterback.

But after throwing for a combined 715 yards in Washington’s last two losses — and nearly leading comebacks from large deficits each time — Smith has returned to a place few thought he would reach again. In Sunday’s 30-27 loss to the Detroit Lions — Smith’s first start since breaking the fibula and tibia in his right leg on Nov. 18, 2018 — he completed a career-high

Tarek and Christina Design a Modern Farmhouse Style That’d Make Chip and Jo Jealous

Laveta Brigham

Chip and Joanna Gaines may be famed for popularizing the modern farmhouse look, but it appears that Christina Anstead and Tarek El Moussa have copped a similar style on the latest “Flip or Flop.” And we dare say it’s better than the original!

In the Season 10 episode “Cut and Run,” Anstead and El Moussa have bought a home in Laguna Hills, CA, for the low price of $625,000. The only problem is that this home looks just like every other house on the block.

Continuously targeting the home networking market, Compal Broadband responds swiftly to customer needs with one-stop service

The global market has seen unprecedented changes in recent years, including trade tension between US-China, which started in 2018 and spurred a supply chain reshuffle that changed what the industry was used to; and the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, which forced businesses to rethink their operations. However, it’s not all bad news. Good things are happening. For example, US, China and Korea kicked off 5G commercial operation in 2019 with more countries following suit in 2020. 5G communication is expected to connect the last

Hotels see business from marketing exterior corridors

Laveta Brigham

REPORT FROM THE U.S.—Cleanliness is always important in the hotel industry.

With the spread of the coronavirus, being germ-free and having more open windows and less closed-in spaces are elevating exterior-corridor properties above their competition. And as hoteliers fight for their share of fewer travel dollars, they need any and all ammunition in their corner to bring in guests.

“Exterior-corridor hotels have a situational advantage during the COVID-19 pandemic, by giving the guest the ability to reduce touchpoints, avoid elevator rides, and be a more self-contained traveler,” said David Sangree, president of Hotel & Leisure Advisors.

In addition, exterior-corridor hotels

Looking for escapist TV? Try home design shows

A few minutes into an episode of “Dream Home Makeover,” a home improvement series that recently premiered on Netflix, an anxious homeowner frets about a minor flaw in the family room fireplace, an asymmetry that the wife describes as “pretty dramatic.”

If you’ve watched enough home improvement television, you know this scene is meant to cue the eye rolls. But Shea McGee, the show’s perky co-star and the creative force behind the Salt Lake City design firm Studio McGee, cheerfully downplays the issue, promising the couple that the half-inch error will fade into the background once their grand 7,900-square-foot home

Back in September, Cyan Racing surprised us with the Volvo P1800 Cyan. It’s a modern interpretation of the classic coupe, though it adds a few modern touches, like a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder. However, Cyan Racing didn’t go all out in modernising the model. It lacks ABS, power brakes, and stability control, for

Winter Wedding Decor Ideas – Chic & Festive Winter Wedding Ideas

winter wedding decor ideas

Deciding on décor for a winter wedding can be a challenge; after all, the colder months are wedding’s off-season, and a time of year that lends itself to potentially kitschy or overly literal themes (cue the mistletoe and snowflakes). To boot, the best blooms—like peonies, dahlias, hydrangeas, and more—are nowhere to be found. And if that weren’t enough, floral varieties are imported from abroad and inclement weather affects incoming shipments, abundance, and quality. The current coronavirus pandemic has affected floral markets worldwide, and colder weather means even smaller guest counts and safety precautions to account for

N.T.S.B. Says Delays Made California Boat Fire More Deadly

Laveta Brigham

The lack of a required night patrol aboard a scuba dive boat delayed the response to a fire that killed 34 people last year, the National Transportation Safety Board said on Tuesday.

The delay allowed the fire to grow unnoticed and “directly led to the high number of fatalities,” the board said.

A lack of smoke detectors in the lounge where the fire most likely broke out, as well as escape hatches in the bunk rooms that directed escapees into the lounge, which was on fire, were also found to have contributed to the delay and extreme loss of life.
