Midcentury Modern Renovation in Chattanooga Wows Fans Nationwide

In Chattanooga, TN, home renovation pro Gary Crowe has been slowly changing the housing stock, in the same vein as Chip and Joanna Gaines in Waco, TX.


A man obsessed with midcentury modern design renovates homes in Chattanooga, TN. He adds pops of color and emphasizes clean lines, dipping back into decades past for inspiration.

Sounds like the plot of an HGTV show, right?

In the same vein as Chip and Joanna Gaines in Waco, TX, Gary Crowe, 39, is slowly changing his city’s housing stock. With his latest project—he’s also the listing agent—he’s now bought and renovated four homes on the same street.

“The look I was going for was Frank Sinatra,” says Crowe of the four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home he’s dubbed Palm Paradiso.

The Game-Changing Step Your Beauty Routine’s Missing

Nowadays it seems like there’s a special cream for every square inch of our bodies. And now that boob AND booty masking has officially gone mainstream, one would think that our beauty routines couldn’t possibly get any more extra than they already are. Well, think again — because hand serums just became a thing. Not to be mistaken with the cream or the balm you may already have sitting by your bathroom sink, serum is an entirely different kind of hand good altogether — and, yes, there’s a compelling case to be made for why it’s actually worth the extra coin.

If intensely moisturizing formulas tend to feel like oil slicks on your skin, then a lightweight serum base is the more absorbable alternative. Our choice pick for this emerging beauty buy? Los Angeles-based Olive & June. The brand’s just-launched Hand Serum is formulated not just to hydrate skin with

Who wanted Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny dead?

Alexei Navalny’s visit to Siberia last week went like most of the trips he has taken across the country to galvanise anger against Russian president Vladimir Putin. Russia’s most popular opposition leader posed for selfies with supporters, took a dip in the Tom river, and evaded a conspicuous tail from Russian secret services.

On the flight back to Moscow, Navalny abruptly broke out in a sweat, became disoriented and collapsed in the plane’s bathroom, where he could be heard groaning in pain before he lost consciousness. A week later, he remains in a coma after being evacuated to Berlin, where doctors said test results suggested he had been poisoned with a cholinesterase inhibitor, the uses of which range from medicines and pesticides to nerve agents.

On Wednesday, Holloway High School administration unveiled a new mural that covers visible wounds connected to the school’s past and segregation. 

The colorful design features all three mascots in the school’s history — Trojans, Rockets and now the Hawks — paired with symbols of education encircled with words from the original alma mater, “A school on a hill that we all love and adore.”

“You can’t tell it anymore. It’s a beautiful work of art celebrating (the school’s past),” said Holloway High School Principal Sumatra Drayton. “You can see reverence for the school and how we have something to be proud of instead of a reminder of the pain of closing the school (after integration in 1968).”

Florida condo for sale is decked out in floor-to-ceiling beers cans

As the old folk song goes, there are 99 bottles of beer on the wall … but in one Florida condo, there are likely tens of thousands of beers on the wall.

Guests are greeted with rows upon rows of Budweiser cans when stepping through the door to unit 102 at 4707 Lucerne Lakes Blvd East in Lake Worth, Florida, approximately 15 miles south of West Palm Beach.

The young making strides for the old | Queenswide

A young man from Flushing has set out to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease, a condition that mostly affects the elderly.

“My relative recently just passed away from Parkinson’s … My parents described how hard her life was — she couldn’t walk, couldn’t go to the bathroom,” Jaskeerat Gujral, a rising senior at St. Francis Prep in Fresh Meadows, said of his aunt’s mother.

But even before it afflicted a member of his family, Gujral already had set out to research the neurodegenerative disorder.

“My inspiration for research was my interest in neuroscience,” he explained. “When I was around 12 I just became fascinated by the brain and how such a small organ can do a lot. At first, I didn’t fully understand the brain, so I assumed that it was a simple organ. I was completely wrong. I now realize the brain is a relatively small organ, but

7 Zoom Prank Ideas Based On TikTok Videos

The music starts playing, and an entire class breaks out in unison to a choreographed dance. In the middle of a meeting, an un-muted mic reveals a cartoonish sound of flatulence. A pencil is passed across a checkerboard of video screens — the host is confused, but smiling.

While there’s nothing funny about the pandemic’s effect on education and the workforce, Gen Zers have found a way to amuse themselves by pranking their classes on Zoom, and the results are one of 2020’s only redeeming qualities. You’ll want to brush up on the best Zoom pranks if you have a particularly patient teacher or boss — who also happens to have a great sense of humor. TikTok’s most successful Zoom pranks feature teachers laughing along with their class or a boss who is at least politely amused. Yet to surface are the Zoom prank fails — though they’re likely aplenty.

Family can never agree on what’s for dinner? This new Columbia restaurant is for you

Steve Cook’s children are not impressed by Saluda’s, the upscale restaurant he’s owned in Five Points for the past 13 years, earning a reputation as one of Columbia’s finest.


They’d rather have pizza.

The nightly “what’s for dinner” conversation can be just as contentious in the Cook household as any other, with multiple tastes to please and schedules to satisfy.

That problem was partly Cook’s inspiration for his new restaurant venture, an Italian-flavored takeout joint that will, in most ways, be a big departure from his Saluda’s operation.

“We try to cook as much as we can,” Cook said of his own family, “but the modern family doesn’t want to do that as much. This restaurant really is an answer to that question. I think there’s a lot of people like us in the neighborhood. So we want to provide familiar food — what’s more familiar than pizza? —

Celebrating the Autumnal Equinox by Zodiac Sign

In this installment of Practical Magic, Lisa Stardust breaks down the autumnal equinox. Always remember that magic is for believers, but this column can also simply serve as a guide to getting in touch with yourself — magically or not.

Autumn is soon upon us, as well as the Sun’s ingress into Libra Season. The autumnal equinox marks the day when there are equal parts day and night. Magically speaking, the autumn equinox (AKA Mabon) is an energetic awakening in which the veil between the material and spiritual worlds is thought to be thinned. Therefore, it’s a potent time for spells, intuition, and gaining clarity.

Witches pay tribute to the Mother Goddess, who is one of the Triple Goddesses of the Moon (The Maiden, The Mother, and The Crone), for enriching our lives with food from the last harvest of the year. Known as the “witch’s Thanksgiving” it’s a
