A new White House under Biden: Discipline, diversity, dogs and social distancing

Posted on

  • Changes at the White House are evident since US President Joe Biden took office, in stark contrast to his predecessor Donald Trump.
  • From required mask-wearing to a new public information approach, Biden’s steady style marks an abrupt change from the bombast and volatility under Trump.
  • Dogs are back on the South Lawn. Regular media briefings, with follow-up questions and data-driven answers, have returned.

WASHINGTON – On the morning of 20 January, hours before Joe Biden arrived at the White House as the 46th US president, a clear plexiglass shield was erected at the guard’s desk at the entrance to the West Wing housing the executive offices.

It was a small but noticeable sign that things were changing: Covid-19 protections missing during Donald Trump’s last year in office would be a regular part of White House life in the Biden administration.

From required mask-wearing to a new public information approach, the

Home Improvement: How home design trends are evolving for social distancing – Salisbury Post

Posted on

Metro Creative

COVID-19 has brought changes to everything, and home design is no exception. Experts are expecting to see lasting impacts on everything from the materials we use to the rooms we prioritize. Check out these and other noteworthy trends:

Houses over apartments: Many people who live in condos or apartments do so to be closer to the action — work, entertainment and shops — and never planned on spending much time at home. But the pandemic has changed that, and more people are going to want a home that offers plenty of room and outdoor space in case they need to self-isolate again.

Self-sufficiency: A hard lesson we’ve learned is that things and services we thought we could count on aren’t necessarily a sure thing, so items that increase self-reliance will become very popular. Expect to see more homes with sources of energy like solar panels, sources of heat

Tim Allen dusted off a character from his “Home Improvement” days to make a joke about social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The 66-year-old “Last Man Standing” actor took to Twitter on Wednesday to share an image of the character Wilson from his immensely successful 1990s sitcom. The show aired from 1991 until 1999 and in almost every episode, Wilson, played by late actor Earl Hindman, acted as the wise neighbor on the show. However, the character went the entirety of the series without ever showing the bottom half of his face, except for a finale special in which he finally took a bow and blew a kiss to the audience.

Tim Allen’s ‘Home Improvement’ Throwback of Mr. Wilson as ‘Social Distancing Champion’ Draws in Social Media

Posted on

Tim Allen recently took to Twitter to share a Home Improvement throwback, and the post has drawn in many social media users. In a tweet, Allen shared a photo of Wilson, who was the next-door neighbor to Allen’s Tim Taylor on the classic ’90s sitcom. In the photo, Wilson is jokingly referred to as the “Social Distancing Champion” from 1991-1999.

In his caption of the post, Allen referred to Wilson as his “dear old friend.” Appearing in nearly every single episodes of Home Improvement, the beloved Wilson was played by actor Earl Hindman. Fans of the show will remember that the Tim and Wilson’s yards were separated by a tall wooden fence, which they would talk to one another over when Tim needed Wilson’s sage advise. Notably, one of the show’s most famous running gags was that the the bottom half of Wilson’s face was always hidden by the
