The champion equestrian and new-face fashionista Jaime Xie talks to us during lockdown about style, sports, social media and her family home. Last year, when not jetting around the world’s four fashion capitals, California-based tech heiress and fashionista Jaime Xie was shooting for a yet-to-be released US reality show.

At only 22, the high-fashion newbie has quickly racked up an impressive, enormous wardrobe, a fashion-week presence and a rapidly growing number of social-media followers. But she’s not your usual fashion influencer. As a former competitive equestrian, Xie ranked first in the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Small Junior Hunter 16-17 Division and, in 2014, her mount Commisario won the USEF Horse of the Year Award.

NHL alters protocols to contend with coronavirus

With coronavirus problems cropping up and five teams now idled — one of them, Vegas, is to resume play Friday — the NHL on Thursday revised its virus protocols in a bid to keep the season on track.

How To Shop Online In The Least Wasteful Ways Possible

If you’ve found yourself spending the pandemic filling up online shopping cart after online shopping cart, you’re not alone.

People have increasingly turned to online shopping during the coronavirus crisis. While Americans spent less online during the first three months of 2020 compared with the final three months of 2019, this shot up by 37 percent in April, May, and June, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. While online sales decreased slightly during July, August, and September, they were still 37 percent higher than the same period in 2019. And online sales are only expected to increase across the industry, according to the Associated Press.

But all this shopping puts a heavy strain on the environment because the packaging relies on a huge amount of single-use plastic (most of which is difficult or impossible to recycle), says David Pinsky, who was a senior plastics campaigner at Greenpeace
