5 Signature Park Jimin Fashion Moves That Make Us Soft


There are many reasons why millions of people across the globe count Park Jimin as their ultimate bias. Of course there’s his delicate, sensual voice — equally deft at soaring and slithering through ballads as it is at punctuating a pop dance hit that just so happens to be the song of summer (stream “Dynamite” for clear skin!). He’s an adorably impish idol whose favorite hobbies include getting scolded by the other BTS members for being late and giggling so hard he falls out of his chair. There’s his absolutely hypnotic and gravity-defying dancing (perhaps he’s too pretty for the laws of physics to apply to him). There’s his philanthropy and his sincere, unwilting love of his fans. 

Oh, and did I mention he’s gorgeous? His beauty is mythic. His Bratz doll lips, his ‘90s Leonardo DiCaprio hair — did the phrase “devastatingly handsome” exist before Park Jimin was

Australian women’s league moves north to Queensland

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Australia’s Women’s National Basketball League is moving to northern Queensland state for a shortened season starting next month.

Queensland state managed to control COVID-19 outbreaks better than most in Australia. As a result, many of the country’s professional sports leagues moved teams and matches to the so-called Sunshine State over the past six months in order to complete their pandemic-interrupted seasons.

On Friday, the WNBL decided to do the same — to start and finish its season over a six-week period in three hubs from Nov. 12 to Dec. 20.

The Australian Football League and the National Rugby League also moved matches and relocated teams to Queensland, where the coronavirus was mostly contained because of a stringent policy of closing the state borders.

The WNBL said the northern Queensland cities of Cairns, Townsville and Mackay would host the 56-game regular season and four-game finals series.

As Singapore Moves to Protect Local Jobs, Expats Question Their Role

Something big is missing from Singapore’s picturesque and impeccably maintained highway linking downtown with Changi A­irport: traffic.

The collapse in international travel has hit the city-state especially hard. Borders are shut to tourists and much of Singapore Airlines Ltd.’s proud fleet is mothballed. The idea of “flights to nowhere” had even been floated — effectively three-hour sight-seeing trips that would be bundled with staycations, shopping vouchers and limousine services. Now that has been scrapped for a plan to serve lunch aboard a grounded jumbo jet, a tour of the carrier’s training facilities and home delivery of first- and business class

NOC and SOC together: DHS moves to new model for operations, incident response

Written by

Dave Nyczepir

The Department of Homeland Security is consolidating its network and security operations centers to ensure services remain available when analysts must investigate a cybersecurity incident, according to the department’s new chief information officer.

The resulting network operations security center (NOSC) model represents a shift from traditional cyber incident response, where the SOC’s goal typically is to take the system offline until the problem can be identified and fixed.

“It’s not just consolidation for consolidation’s sake,” CIO Karen Evans said during an ACT-IAC event Wednesday. “It’s the next evolution of providing and managing risk to keep the business going while we are then analyzing, being aware of and being able to protect our operations.”

Evans said she held planning sessions internally, as well as with the department’s CIO Council. The department is currently considering how best to staff the NOSC in terms

‘Conservative Republican women are alive and well’: House GOP moves to close gender gap

More than that, though, the GOP — which has long shunned identity politics, at least when it comes to gender — has experienced a real attitude and cultural shift around electing more women to Congress, according to interviews with over a dozen lawmakers, candidates, operatives and aides. Women are stepping up to run, citing their gender as an asset and answering the siren sounded by party leaders — even as President Donald Trump remains divisive among women of both parties.

“The 2018 cycle was a motivating factor,” said retiring Rep. Susan Brooks (Ind.), one of just 13 Republican women in the House and head of recruitment efforts for the party’s campaign arm. “Even though we had been recruiting and helping women candidates, we realized we did need to shift some strategy and do far more.”

And so far, the initiative has paid off: 227 Republican women filed to run for
