PARIS — Pierre Cardin, the French designer whose famous name embossed everything from wristwatches to bedsheets after his iconic Space Age styles shot him into the fashion stratosphere in the 1960s, has died, the French Academy of Fine Arts said Tuesday.

Quarantining is based on 700 year old virus-fighting logic. Here's how to safely shorten your time in isolation, according to science.

Lazzaretto Vecchio on September 4, 2019 in Venice, Italy. The island was likely the world's first quarantine station. It housed plague-sufferers in the Middle Ages. Amy Zielinski/Getty Images Quarantining is imprecise, 700-year-old virus-fighting logic that originated with the plague in Europe. The coastal cities of Dubrovnik and Venice invented some of the first quarantines in the 1300s and 1400s, which were as long as 40 days (that's 'quaranta giorni' in Italian).  There was no real ...
