Fashion is cyclical, it’s a fact. There are hardly ever completely brand-new trends that surface in this exclusive world of high-powered designers. So it’s no surprise that with the dawn of a new decade, fashion trends from previous years have come back into vogue. Though we spent years ridiculing the dress-over-jeans look that frequented the red carpet during the 2000s, these early years are making a big comeback. However, as the years progress, so does our society and the ways in which trends spread.

Women report more side effects than men. Here’s why.

Reports of COVID-19 vaccine side effects support what many have anecdotally observed: Women shoulder the bigger burden.

Among nearly 7,000 reports processed through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System from Dec. 14 to Jan. 13, more than 79% of them came from women. The most frequently reported side effects were headache, fatigue and dizziness.

Pamplin Media Group – Poll: Working, learning from home to linger in Oregon

Statewide polling by the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center asks about lasting effects of pandemic on Oregon.


The novel coronavirus has upended nearly every facet of modern life over the past year — but will those changes stick?

Many Oregonians predict that online shopping and working from home are here to stay; virtual schooling and high unemployment, on the other hand, are expected to linger temporarily. And the permanence of other virus-spurred alterations in society, such as the rise of telemedicine, leave Oregon divided.

That’s all according to a new polling by the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center.

Here’s how the pollsters drilled down into the details:

Nanette Dondero and Gena Gaudio became friends while working in Detroit’s fashion industry, bonding over their shared love of design, as well as a fondness for cannabis. One time during a backyard smoking sesh, they both lamented how their smoking accessories could use an upgrade.

“We started talking about how our smoking accessories were just not that great looking, and why that was, and why it felt like there was sort of a gap in the industry for accessories designed with aesthetics more in mind,” Dondero tells Metro Times. That’s when they got the idea to start their own cannabis
