Travelers ask, ‘Cash, what’s that?’

On a recent trip to England, Andrew Dodson, 35, and his wife, Erin, 32, who live in Traverse City, Michigan, had an unexpected problem: No matter how hard they tried, they couldn’t spend the 700 British pounds they’d brought along. “We traveled all around the country, including many small towns in the Lake District and the Cotswolds, and even the tiniest of pubs took cards,” says Dodson, a content marketing manager for TentCraft, a manufacturer of customized tents and accessories. “Many wouldn’t even accept cash. As we approached the end of our trip, we went to a nice dinner at this Indian restaurant where we hoped to spend off some of the cash we converted, only to be told they don’t accept cash anymore.”

Sitting pretty at the world’s largest furniture and interior design fair

Italy’s Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone events, together the largest furniture and interiors fair in the world, has had a few setbacks since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. After a cancellation in 2020 and several delays in 2021, it only resurfaced last September on a much-reduced scale. This year, however, it finally returned in full force, and a postponement to June from its usual April date allowed more participants to take part. Among the numerous Fuorisalone venues and a packed roster of more than 2,000 exhibitors at Salone del Mobile’s 60th-anniversary celebration, Japan was well represented as usual. On: Design introduces a few product launches, installations and young designers that caught the attention of international media. At Salone del Mobile in the Rho Fiera Milano exhibition and trade center, two major players in the woodworking industry launched new lineups involving high-profile designers. Karimoku presented pieces from Karimoku Case Study, its collection of bespoke furniture, which draws from models initially conceived for interior design projects. The exhibit included two updated versions of dining chairs designed last year by architect Keiji Ashizawa for the Blue Bottle Coffee chain in Japan. For extra comfort in the home, the new chairs’ rounded and gently sloping backrests are now carved from solid wood and sport slim pipe armrests, all matched with leather trimming and textile upholstery from Denmark-based Kvadrat.

Trump dismisses Capitol riots investigation as 'crazy' – and says it is 'wasting everyone's time'

In a characteristically bombastic speech, former President Donald Trump has spoken for the first time publicly about the Capitol riots hearing - dismissing it as "crazy" and a "theatrical production of partisan political fiction".At the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference on Friday in Nashville, Mr Trump described the riots on 6 January 2021 - in which five people were killed - as "a simple protest" that "got out of hand". And he diminished the congressional investigation into what happened as "wasting everyone's time".On the morning of 6 January, thousands of Trump supporters - inspired by an incendiary speech he had just given near the White House in which he repeated claims he had been denied a second term due to voter fraud - marched to the Capitol building that houses the US seat of government.The Capitol was in session at the time, overseeing the congressional certification of Joe Biden's presidential election win. Advertisement A large group breached barriers at pedestrian entrances to the building's grounds. Several also entered the Capitol building itself after a mob smashed windows and forced open doors. Image: The United States Capitol Building was breached by thousands of protesters during the so-called 'Stop The Steal' rally More than 100 police officers were injured in the chaos. More on Donald Trump Related Topics: A House panel is now investigating the events of that day.However, Mr Trump told supporters in Tennessee: "Let's be clear. This is not a congressional investigation, this horrible situation that's wasting everyone's time."This is a theatrical production of partisan political fiction that's getting these terrible, terrible ratings and they're going crazy. They're going crazy."The committee is taking the testimony of witnesses who defended me for eight hours, chopping it up and truncating soundbites to make it sound like what they said was absolutely terrible." He went on: "Remember, it's also (about) the people that weren't allowed to even testify that wanted to. A lot of people wanted to go and testify about what they saw and how crooked it was."Meanwhile, the committee refuses to play any of the tape of people saying the good things, the things that we want to hear. It's a one-way street. It's a rigged deal. It's a disgrace."Read more: Donald Trump accused of staging an attempted coupResponding to claims made in the hearing that he had labelled his then vice president Mike Pence as a "wimp" for not following his wishes and halting the rubber-stamping of Mr Biden's win, Mr Trump told the crowd: "I never called Mike Pence a wimp. I never called him a wimp."Mike Pence had a chance to be great and he had a chance to be, frankly, historic. But... Mike, and I say it sadly because I like him, Mike did not have the courage to act."Read more:Far-right Proud Boys ex-boss faces up to 20 years in jail as he's charged with plotting to overthrow US governmentTrump will pardon Capitol rioters if he runs and wins in 2024The former president had some stinging criticism for fellow Republican Adam Kinzinger, who has said Trump "lit the flames" of the insurrection.The congressman got emotional during his opening comments at the hearing.Trump said: "Adam Kinzinger, the crier.

I said, there's something wrong with that guy."He is said to be actively weighing whether he might formally launch a third presidential run.
