Thanks to the video-sharing app, the crossover leggings are virtually impossible to get your hands on — and since they’re an online-only exclusive, all you can really do is wait for Aerie to restock.

British-based exchanges will once again offer trading in Swiss shares from next month, but it may take time to rebuild volumes, Britain's finance ministry and exchanges said on Friday. The ministry has set out legislation in parliament that is expected to be approved quickly and allow platforms like Cboe, Aquis Exchange and London Stock Exchange's Turquoise to be able to offer trading in Swiss shares from or just after Feb. 3. "Once in force, the Swiss State Secretariat for International Financial Matters (SIF) have indicated they will reciprocate by removing restrictions on UK trading venues," a spokesman for the British finance ministry said.
NEW YORK — If it's dry and cold where you live, work or play, it's winter skin season, but the fixes may not be as obvious as they seem. Rather than bide your time until April, The Associated Press asked dermatologists for tips on seasonal care and protection to stave off itchy, flaky and cracked skin. —Don't take extra hot showers. As much as you want the comfort of that heat when it's chilly, there's less moisture in the air during winter and hot showers can further dehydrate your skin, said Dr. Neil Sadick, clinical professor of dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College. "Make showers as tepid as you can tolerate," he said. If you can't stand the chill, find a space heater safe for bathroom use. Dr. Alicia Zalka, associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale, put it this way: "Take shorter, fewer, cooler or soap free showers." By soap free, she means stay away from products that contain detergents because they can remove protective, essential oils. —Don't assume that drinking water or replacing fluids internally is enough to keep your skin healthy during cold weather. Zalka is all for drinking water to stay hydrated but cautions that moisture from the extra fluids can evaporate if not trapped by the epidermis, the skin's outer layer. Moisturizing is so important this time of year because it protects the outer layer from winter's wrath while retaining natural moisture from within. "If you've got the driest of dry skin, the best defence for that is a couple of days of plain old Vaseline, as a a sealer and a protectant," she said. "If the skin is already cracked, it does not sting." Remember that certain beverages are dehydrating, such as those containing alcohol or caffeine, so consume them in moderation, said Clinique dermatologist Dr. David Orentreich. —Don't necessarily stick to the same skin products for face and body. Orentreich said a skin care regimen that worked during the warm, humid days of summer may not provide the same results in cold weather. Change your cleanser from a strong to milder formulation, your exfoliator from strong to gentler and your moisturizer from light to richer, he suggests. "Humidify the air in your home, especially in your bedroom so that healing and repair can take place while you sleep," Orentreich said. —Don't forget sunblock. It's just as important during winter as it is in summer, experts say, especially during winter sports like skiing at high altitude. "In the winter it feels cold because very little infrared light reaches the earth," Orentreich said. "The opposite is true in the summer. However, in the winter ultraviolet light is 90 per cent as strong as it is in the summer but since we can't feel or see it we mistakenly think it's absent, too." Application of a broadband screen once a day should suffice, Sadick said. —Don't ignore hair and nails. They're made of the same basic compounds as the skin and crack and split in similar fashion, Zalka said. "I don't think people realize that when nails split it's 90 per cent from lack of proper moisture. She said B vitamin supplements can improve skin, hair and nails, especially during winter. "They're better for the skin when ingested, rather than when you put them on the skin topically," Zalka said. Orentreich said clothing can protect exposed, sensitive skin such as the cheeks and hands but be careful of fabrics like rough wool that can further irritate chapped skin. Zalka said wearing slightly loose cotton gloves to bed after applying a sealant will speed the healing process for hurting hands and nails. For hair, Sadick said use a conditioner more frequently during winter. Leanne Italie, The Associated Press
Anyone entering the UK from 4am on Monday will need to isolate for 10 days after Boris Johnson slammed shut all travel corridors in a bid to keep out new coronavirus variants. It came as the daily number of Covid-19 cases in the UK exceeded 50,000 for the first time in five days. A highly contagious Brazilian Covid strain that prompted a travel ban from South America has not yet been found in the UK, a leading virologist has said.

Alix village council told their Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) group to move into its new multi-use office soon, after the FCSS board requested a chance to stay in their old office. The decision was made at the Jan. 6 regular council meeting, held via Zoom to meet pandemic rules. Village Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Michelle White gave councillors a report on the Alix FCSS board’s request to stay in the Railway House free of charge, rather than move into new offices at the community wellness centre. “FCSS currently has office space on the ground floor of Railway House in the same bay as the youth centre,” stated White’s report to council. “Council made a resolution to change the FCSS funding method to an application-based process on a per-project or per-program basis in 2021. The agreement with the Alix FCSS ended as of Dec. 31, 2020.” White noted the village received a letter of request from the Alix FCSS board chair asking permission to stay put. “This past year has been a year of changes,” stated the undated letter simply signed “FCSS Chairman.” “Some were good and some were bad. The food bank will be moving to the wellness area in the New Year. “The board is hoping that you will allow us to stay in the FCSS office until we feel comfortable that all matters are taken care of. “This is not an easy transition for our coordinator and we hope that you understand closing up an office that has been her life for 20-some years has taken a toll on her mental well-being. “If this is feasible, let us know ASAP.” White stated the village grants about $4,000 per year in building expenses to Alix FCSS and those expenses would continue regardless of where FCSS is housed. She noted the village pays about $2,000 per year in phone expenses for FCSS, and if they moved into the wellness centre, that money would be saved. However, she stated letting FCSS stay put had benefits too. “Allowing the continued use of the office space would help with making this transition easier for the public,” stated White’s report. “Though a long period of notice was given to the society regarding the changes, many FCSS activities happen only at certain times of year. “This means some clients may not yet be aware of the changes. Authorizing extra time may allow the society to connect with more users before closing.” Mayor Rob Fehr stated that upon doing his own research, he got conflicting stories about this request. The mayor stated there was confusion about who wrote the letter from Alix FCSS, as it was not signed and some FCSS board members told him they were unaware of any such letter. Fehr stated he felt FCSS should move into the wellness centre as planned to reduce confusion in the community. “They knew this move was coming,” said the mayor. Councillors Vicki Soltermann and Barb Gilliat agreed with Fehr, with Coun. Ed Cole noting if FCSS stayed in their current office, they should pay their own expenses. Coun. Tim Besuijen stated no reason was given to stay in the old office. “A move into the wellness centre would be a step in the right direction,” said Besuijen. During discussion, a timeframe for Alix FCSS moving into the wellness centre was discussed, and Fehr noted some board members told him the end of January was fine. Soltermann agreed, saying this has been talked about since September. Councillors eventually passed a motion that Alix FCSS could stay in their current office until Feb. 15, 2021, but then must begin the move into the community wellness centre.Stu Salkeld, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, East Central Alberta Review
Complicating the public health response is the fact that we still know so little about how the virus operates -- such as why some patients remain asymptomatic while it ravages others. When the outbreak first reached New York City, “we started trying to figure out what to do, how we could actually help manage the patients,” Moore continued.
