Once a Lace Capital, Now Riven by French Politics

CALAIS, France — The clang of giant weaving looms ricocheted across a cavernous factory one recent afternoon at Desseilles Laces, one of the oldest lace makers in France. A handful of workers flitted among the machines, guiding gossamer threads into a floral confection destined for luxury lingerie and couture dresses. The halls here, and at hundreds of lace factories around Calais, were once thick with employees. Today, fewer than 300 employees remain at just three factories — Desseilles, Noyon Dentelle and Codentel — a fraction of the 30,000 whose livelihood depended on lace less than two generations ago. Around Calais, the hulking brick skeletons of abandoned lace factories cast shadows over modest, low-slung houses.

Don’t Blame Bahamians for your shitty FyreFest.

For a minute I thought that it was the universe seeking karmic retribution from rich kids that didn’t know how to say “Good Morning”. If you didn’t know about Fyre Festival before yesterday then welcome to the club. The thing is, a good portion of The Bahamas didn’t know what Fyre Festival was, and therein lies one of the first problems. Most Bahamians didn’t know anything about this. I don’t feel sorry for anyone involved other than my poor country that ended up being a backdrop for this financial massacre.

Portland family parade becomes unexpected battlefield for political activists

Demonstrators on both sides of the political spectrum protest in Portland, Ore., along the route of a parade that was canceled amid safety concerns. (KOIN 6 News)The 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade that snakes through the Southeast Portland corridor each year provides families with familiar springtime escapism. Still, it has left residents of the Portland neighborhood concerned that political tensions in the country are disrupting everyday American life. The parade has become a celebration of the diverse cultures that have settled here as inner Portland neighborhoods have gentrified, bulldozing affordable housing and edging families out. In an interview via Facebook messaging, an organizer with Oregon Students Empowered, an ­antifa group, said the group did not want the parade canceled but, rather, the GOP float removed from the parade.
