Rising Tides

Last night at 12:01am, Las Vegas casinos were able to reopen, and many of them did, with ready and willing tourists showing up before that time. The casinos have to make many modifications like spacing out slot machine patrons, limiting the number of players at table games, and keeping some aspects of their operations closed, but people can gamble once again. Like many people here, I have mixed feelings about this. While it may help the local economy (which heavily relies on tourism), it w...

Whistles is a British clothing brand with stores across the UK. In 2016, the shops were bought by South African retailer, the Foschini Group, who I am coincidently quite familiar with.
