As the #blacklivesmatter hashtag slowly stops trending online, how are large corporations going to continue to use their power to make an impact toward economic equality for Black businesses in their respective industries? Aurora James—the founder of Brother Vellies, a luxury accessories brand—came up with the 15 Percent Pledge as a response to the many people and businesses alike who have asked the question, What can we do to help?

The name of the project is derived from the fact that Black Americans make up nearly 15 percent of the U.S. population; the pledge began to go viral after James proposed the idea on her personal Instagram account and directly tagged major retailers such as Target, Sephora, and Whole Foods. When companies sign on to take the pledge, they are promising that at least 15 percent of their shelf space will be devoted

⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

It’s one of only 55 U.S.-spec F50s ever made.

In August, Gooding & Co. will kick off its new platform of online auctions, and it will be swinging for the fences as one of the cars included in this auction is a 1995 Ferrari F50. No estimates have been given as to how much Gooding & Co. is expecting the F50 to sell for, but these Ferraris have been consistently selling for upwards of $2.5 million in recent years including one that sold for $3.2 million range earlier this year. All it would take is a price higher than $2.6 million to break the record set by a 2003 Ferrari Enzo back in June for the most expensive car ever sold online.

From 1995 through 1997, Ferrari built just 349 examples (total) of its F50 supercar, and

Will COVID-19 force cancellation of Art Basel Miami Beach? A lot is riding on it

For 19 years, Art Basel Miami Beach has injected a jet-fueled blast into the local cultural and tourism calendar. The fair doesn’t just put a massive trove of world-class art on public display, but also draws mobs of some of the world’s richest people, fills hotels and restaurants, and, not incidentally, helps sustain Miami’s ongoing maturation as a global center for culture and commerce.

The contemporary-art fair has been canceled only once. What would have been the inaugural show was called off following the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

But, with five months to go, a big question hangs over the 2020 editions of Art Basel Miami Beach and its companion but much smaller Design Miami fair: Will the show go on?

The COVID-19 pandemic has only deepened long-running financial woes at Art Basel’s parent company in Switzerland, forcing MCH Group to cancel lucrative sister fairs in Hong Kong and its

Best bike locks

Although your bicycle might not be the most expensive item you own, there is an inarguable emotional attachment to it, which makes bike theft an agonising experience, and a bike lock an essential for any cyclist.

If you commute to work, pop down to the store for groceries, or leave your bike latched to your car’s bike rack outside a venue, without the security of sturdy bike lock there is always the risk of it not being there on your return. 

Bike theft is a scourge. It has been incentivised by the demand for pre-owned bikes and components, due to ever-growing retail prices. Thieves can quickly use online resources to calculate the expected returns from their illicit activity. 

To ensure that your bike is always where you parked it last, investing in a robust bike lock is paramount. Good bike locks are a one-time purchase and don’t require replacement every

How To Embroider Like A Stitching Pro, According To An Expert

Now more than four months into quarantine, you’ve likely tried many at-home activities, from learning how to tie-dye to working out to your mom’s old Jane Fonda tapes (if only for the ‘80s fashion inspiration). The latest one having a moment? Embroidery. 

This isn’t the first time that the art of stitching has seen a rise in popularity. Following Donald Trump’s win in 2016, a feminist stitching movement commenced, with women like Diana Weymar — an artist from British Columbia, who founded the Tiny Pricks Project to keep physical records of the ludicrous things that the President says and tweets — Shanon Downey — a Chicago-based needleworker of embroidery website Badass Cross Stitch — and more putting needle to fabric to air grievances and make their positions known.

It makes sense, not only is it extremely cathartic to jab at fabric with a needle a couple thousand times when angry

Best cycling bib shorts

The difference between a good and bad pair of bib shorts is immense. A badly fitting or poor quality pair can ruin even the shortest of rides, while the best bib shorts can leave you riding comfortably for hours on end.

A well-designed chamois will go a long way to improve comfort but the chamois has to be supported by quality materials that are cut and constructed in a way that keeps everything in place and avoids uncomfortable bunching without restricting movement while riding.

1. Chamois

It is hard to advise on a chamois as everyone’s anatomy is different, however, certain considerations are important when deciding what may work for you. A chamois should fit close to the body with the key areas of padding located in your sit bone area when in a riding position.

It’s not simply the thickness that will indicate comfort but size and shape should

2021 Ferrari Portofino Upgraded To Make 612 HP, EPA Filing Indicates

There’s also an eight-speed gearbox that improves fuel economy.

The 2021 Ferrari Portofino will get a power upgrade to 612 horsepower (456 kilowatts), versus the current output of 591 hp (441 kW). It will also gain an eight-speed gearbox to replace the existing seven-speed unit. Motor Trend was first to uncover this info by digging through EPA filings.

There’s already a listing on the EPA’s fuel economy website a model with the designation 2021 Ferrari F164 BCB. To clarify this, F164 is the Prancing Horse’s internal code for the Portofino. The meaning of the BCB portion is a mystery to us.

The Pretty Portofino:

If a Ferrari making 612 hp and using an eight-speed gearbox sounds familiar it’s because the same powertrain is in the Roma coupe. The Prancing Horse’s more detailed EPA emissions filing even certifies the two vehicles in the same document.

The EPA also has a listing
