Mrs. Dash seasoning brand drops ‘Mrs.’ from its name

Apparently, Mrs. Dash is now a single woman.

Following a 37-year union since the salt-free seasoning products hit store shelves in 1983, the brand is back on the market and no longer a missus, parent company B&G Foods Inc. announced last week.

This spring, the salt-free brand will reintroduce itself by the shorter name “Dash.”

In a statement, Dash’s parent company said that the updated moniker “captures the salt-free seasoning line’s ability to quickly and easily add salt-free flavor to any dish,” with no mention of any former implications of its assumed gender roles.

“The Dash line of salt-free seasonings will continue to allow consumers to elevate their cooking quickly and simply — in a dash,” Julie Gould, marketing director of B&G Foods, said in a statement on Thursday. “For 30-plus years, the Mrs. Dash brand has been a trusted salt-free seasoning staple in American homes and we’re thrilled to roll out the new Dash branding and products as well as a partnership with Joy Bauer, one of the most trusted and sought-after health experts in the country.”

Looking ahead, health and nutrition expert Bauer will star in national advertising campaigns for Dash, and publish low-sodium recipes that the brand will share online.

A new product will also join the Dash lineup of salt-free spices, seasoning mixes and marinades this spring: Dash plans to release a new blend called “Everything But the Salt,” offering the delicious flavor of everything bagels, the company said.

Intriguingly, however, the brand isn’t quite calling its marriage quits online, as the official website will remain MrsDash.com. AdAge speculates that this is because Proctor & Gamble appears to own the URL for Dash.com, which is also the name of one of its detergents.

TSA bans employees from using TikTok on behalf of agency following Schumer’s complaints

TikToks from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) don’t fly with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

The TSA announced on Sunday that employees are no longer allowed to use the China-owned video sharing app on behalf of the security screening agency after the Senate’s top Democrat raised concerns about potential national security issues.

TSA KEEPS PEOPLE’S LOOSE CHANGE FROM AIRPORT SECURITY: HERE’S WHY

In a statement, the TSA revealed that a “small number of TSA employees have previously used TikTok on their personal devices to create videos for use in TSA’s social media outreach, but that practice has since been discontinued,” according to the Associated Press.

Though the agency claims they never posted content directly to TikTok or otherwise directed viewers to the increasingly popular platform, videos have previously been posted on TSA social media accounts (on platforms like Twitter) with the TikTok logo in the corner.

Before Thanksgiving, an official TSA Twitter account shared a TikTok featuring a spokeswoman explaining the “nopes” and “yeps” of carry-on luggage in a clip that went viral. Earlier this month, the same employee shared a playful video clarifying the rules for traveling with the hazelnut spread Nutella, as well as another clip offering tips for Valentine’s Day travel.

The TSA’s new decision concerning TikTok videos was announced after Schumer, D-N.Y., sent a letter to TSA Administrator David Pekoske on Saturday, the Associated Press reports. The senator’s crusade for the ban began months ago: In November, Schumer and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. called for U.S. intelligence officials to investigate it for any threats to national security.

Schumer argued that the continued use of TikTok from the TSA could expose the American public and federal agency to “very real” risks from China, according to a statement released on Sunday. Schumer cited a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rule prohibiting TikTok on agency devices in making his case.

“Given the widely reported threats, the already-in-place agency bans, and the existing concerns posed by TikTok, the feds cannot continue to allow the TSA’s use of the platform to fly,” Schumer said.

“These videos sure do make you chuckle; they’re creative,” he continued. “But China might be laughing at these TSA postings for very different reasons, and that should concern us and it’s why I am urging the TSA to find a different platform, and cease its use of TikTok now.”

The DHS, Department of Defense and the State Department have all banned the use of TikTok on government devices since Schumer first sounded the alarm in the fall.

A spokesperson for the TSA was not immediately available to offer further comment on the news.

Girl’s funny reaction to meeting newborn brother goes viral: ‘Look at the state of him!’

Tell us how you really feel, kiddo.

A young Scottish girl’s hilariously skeptical reaction to meeting her baby brother for the first time in the hospital has gone viral on social media with hundreds of thousands of views.

On Tuesday, Skye Masson of Glasgow welcomed a baby boy named Carter. When big sister Harper, 5, met her new sibling in the postnatal ward, however, she was brutally honest in sharing her feelings on the new bundle of joy. The hilarious moment was caught on film by Masson’s younger sister Renèe Shaw, and has since received over 300,000 views on Twitter, the Daily Mail reports.

In the quick clip, loved ones gathered around Masson’s hospital bed, while the beaming mom held the flushed, sleeping newborn in her arms. Intrigued, the little girl wiggled around the edge of the bed and stared at her new sibling.

“Look at the state of him!” Harper suddenly exclaimed, shocking her mom with her sass.

“Can confirm she’s talking s—,” Shaw added in a follow-up tweet, sharing photos of adorable baby Carter.

Commenters were thoroughly amused with the little girl’s candid take, agreeing that her honesty left them “howling” with laughter.

In the days since, Harper’s aunt has confirmed that the youngster has fortunately warmed up to the newest family member.

“I was shocked when Harper said that about her baby brother and Skye was shocked also,” Shaw told the Mail. “But now Harper adores her baby brother and cannot wait until he is home.”

Amid coronavirus, flu outbreaks, here’s how to disinfect plane seats

Achooew!

Frequent flyers may be especially nervous about getting sick during their travels amid flu seasons and the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

What’s worse, a recent study from MIT estimates that only about 20 percent of people in airports have clean hands (meaning they were washed with soap and water for a minimum of 15 seconds within the hour). However, researchers also found that if about 60 percent of airport-goers had truly clean hands, it could help slow the spread of global disease by as much as 69 percent.

Though you can’t control your fellow passengers, you can take matters into your own hands by thoroughly disinfecting your airplane seat before your next flight. Here’s how:

CHINESE BARS DELIVERING HAPPY HOUR DRINKS AMID CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN

Use antibacterial wipes

Use a pack of antibacterial wipes with alcohol to wipe down everything in your personal area, including the tray table, arm rest, seatbelt handle, air vents and call buttons, Ohio State University infectious disease specialist Debra A. Goff, Pharm.D. told Reader’s Digest. Hitting these “high touch” areas is a surefire way to fight germs, she said.

If you’re feeling generous, consider passing out the wipes to your fellow seatmates, Goff suggests — after all, the cleaner the area, the better for all passengers.

“Unlike sharing bacteria and viruses, this is something you want to share,” she said.

Consider a seat cover

Wary of the upholstered seats? Whether you’re flying high in first-class or hunkering down in economy, antibacterial wipes won’t help you here. Instead, avid travelers may want to invest in a reusable seat and tray table cover, SmarterTravel recommends.

Furthermore, a 2018 study of aircraft cleanliness suggested that seats’ headrests may be the germiest surfaces on the plane, with some testing positive for E. coli bacteria. All the more reason to get sit back and relax with your own cover, on your own terms.

Be careful what you touch

Don’t get too comfortable too quickly: If you’re a fan of spreading out and using the seatback pocket for your belongings or snacks, SmarterTravel suggests keeping your personal items a bit closer. Because seatback pockets are often touched by dozens of passengers, they can harbor “one of the airplane’s highest concentrations of germs,” the site claims.

According to new research from Emory University, the safest place to sit on an airplane, interns of avoiding germs, might just be the window seat.

Respiratory illnesses, like coronavirus, generally spread via a person coming into contact with an infected persons’ saliva or mucus. Droplets from a sneeze or cough can land on surfaces, such as tray tables or arm rests, and potentially infect a nearby passenger sharing the enclosed space.

However, study participants who sat in window seats had less interaction with other passengers — beyond those sitting within two rows of them — thus limiting their chances of interacting with an infected person, the study leads said.

As of Tuesday, the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus (formerly known as the novel coronavirus) has reportedly infected more than 73,250 people across the globe, while the death toll has risen to at least 1,868.

A February report from the CDC states that the flu has caused at least 26 illnesses and 14,000 deaths between Oct. 1 of last year and Feb. 8.

Chinese bars delivering happy hour drinks amid coronavirus lockdown,

For the millions stuck at home in China amid the coronavirus outbreak, it’s definitely time for a drink.

With over 60 million people across several Chinese cities on lockdown, and therefore unable to make it to happy hour, happy hour is coming to them. Bars in the bustling cities of Guangzhou and Beijing have reportedly started delivering discounted drinks straight to customer’s doorsteps, as government leaders have temporarily paused all public activities and services in an effort to prevent further infections.

Through the continued confinement, some bars are hoping to keep the good times (and profits) flowing. In Guangzhou, the Mexican-inspired establishment Bandidos is serving discounted margaritas available for order via social app WeChat, while the “speakeasy”-style Hope and Sesame bar is said to be selling bottled-up versions of their cocktails.

The COVID-19 virus is believed to have originated in the city of Wuhan. The outbreak has spread to more than 25 countries, though the bulk of the cases remain in the Hubei province.

Chinese officials have imposed sweeping measures to contain the epidemic, cutting off outbound transportation from the hardest-hit cities and prolonging the Lunar New Year holiday.

Ivanka Trump debuts new hair color

Blondes have more fun!

White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump debuted a new look on Wednesday morning with chunky blonde highlights in her already golden hair.

The president’s oldest daughter unveiled the new ‘do at a State Department anniversary event in Washington, D.C. for the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative she spearheaded last year.

Looking ahead, style blog Who What Wear predicts that chunky highlights popularized in the 90s will make a comeback in 2020. Unlike the dramatic, high-contrast highlights of days past, however, the new take on the trend will reportedly incorporate balayage and face-framing coloring techniques.

POLITICIAN BLASTS ‘EVERYDAY SEXISM’ AFTER BEING TROLLED FOR OFF-THE-SHOULDER DRESS

This isn’t the first time in recent months that Trump switched up her look. In September 2019, the White House senior adviser made headlines when she lobbed off her long locks into a trendy bob, debuting the new hairstyle while visiting Colombia to advocate for female entrepreneurs.

At the Wednesday W-GDP event, Trump revealed that a bipartisan pair of senators are working for the global women’s initiative to be written into law. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., will take on the effort.

The proposed legislation would establish an Office of Women’s Empowerment at the State Department and make the economic empowerment of women across the globe a mainstay in U.S. foreign policy, beyond her father’s administration.

The first daughter called the legislation a “long overdue goal.”

In February of last year, the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative (W-GDP) aimed to “help 50 million women in developing countries realize their economic potential by 2025,” according to an op-ed she penned for The Wall Street Journal.

Royal Caribbean cancels 18 cruises in Asia amid coronavirus outbreak

Bon voyage, Royal Caribbean.

Royal Caribbean International has canceled 18 cruises in Asia amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

On Thursday, Reuters reports, the Miami-based cruise line announced that 18 upcoming cruises in Southeast Asia have been canceled as officials struggle to contain the viral disease, which is officially known as COVID-19.

“While the early impact due to concerns about the coronavirus is mainly related to Asia, recent bookings for our broader business have also been softer,” the company revealed.

Looking ahead, Royal Caribbean has not yet canceled its remaining departures across Asia through the end of April.

A spokesperson for the cruise company was not immediately available to offer further comment on the news.

As of Friday morning, the viral outbreak that began in China has reportedly infected over 64,000 people globally and claimed the lives of at least 1,383.

Last week, Royal Caribbean canceled eight cruises from China through early March as a precautionary measure for the safety of guests and staff.

A spokesperson for the cruise company was not immediately available to offer further comment.

On Monday, Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas ship finally departed a New Jersey port after docking last week to screen dozens of passengers for the novel coronavirus.

California veteran, 104, gets 200,000 Valentine’s Day cards

Happy Valentine’s Day, Major White.

A 104-year-old Marine Corps veteran who served in World War II said he’s “floored” to have received over 200,000 Valentine’s cards from all over the world for his growing collection of keepsakes.

Last month, a friend of Maj. Bill White launched a social media campaign dubbed “Operation Valentine” to collect Valentine’s Day cards for the centenarian veteran.

VALENTINE’S DAY: DO YOU KNOW THE ORIGINS OF THE HOLIDAY?

White resides at an assisted living facility in Stockton, Calif. and cites scrapbooking as a favorite hobby. Along with his many military medals – including a Purple Heart awarded for surviving the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945 – White enjoys keeping his scrapbooks and mementos organized, Fox 40 reports.

This year, the spirited vet hoped to grow his collection of keepsakes with 100 Valentine’s Day cards in honor of his 100 years, and was astonished to receive hundreds of thousands of love letters, Reuters reports.

On Wednesday night, White told host Martha MacCallum on “The Story” that well-wishers sent over 200,000 cards ahead of Feb. 14.

“It just floored me, this is something that has never happened to me before in my life, and I doubt this will ever happen again!” he joked.

White reportedly has received so much mail that his family has had recruited volunteers to help open the letters and read them, per Reuters.

Though Cupid’s bow certainly struck the veteran with the holiday spirit this year, White revealed he’s never celebrated Valentine’s Day in such a big way before, even when his wife of 42 years was still alive.

“It’s something I’ve never heard of or seen. All of a sudden here, like a ton of bricks. I’m sort of speechless,” he said of the outpour of love.

Fashion Week events in China postponed amid coronavirus fears

These fashion weeks have become fashion victims.

Two major fashion industry events in China have been postponed as a precaution amid fears surrounding the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, previously referred to as the novel coronavirus.

MEN APPEAR TO BE MORE VULNERABLE TO THE CORONAVIRUS: REPORT

Productions for Shanghai Fashion Week and China Fashion Week in Beijing have been temporarily halted as the number of coronavirus cases in China continues to rise. As of Thursday, over 50,000 people in the country had been reportedly infected with the virus, while the death toll had reached 1,300 worldwide.

Both Fashion Weeks were slated to begin on March 26, and have been deferred for the foreseeable future, the South China Morning Post reports. No information has yet been released regarding when events might be rescheduled, as “designers, trade show owners, fashion week committees and the local governments have not yet been able to agree on a time slot” that is both viable for brands and be deemed “safe” by the government, reports Women’s Wear Daily.

In partnership with Beijing’s Central Committee, State Council and Shanghai’s local government, Shanghai Fashion Week officials announced the news on Monday, postponing what the Business of Fashion calls “the country’s most important fashion moment of the year.” The event has been called off for now as a “precautionary measure” against the COVID-19 virus.

“We hope that everyone will stay vigilant and pay attention to the government’s advice,” said Shanghai Fashion Week executive Lv Xiaolei. “The organization will focus on keeping up trade, communicating with all parties and find a solution to the situation.”

Chinese consumers fuel the world’s largest luxury market, spending over $100 billion annually both at home and abroad, CBS reports.  As brands like Balenciaga, Burberry and Gucci limit their store hours of operation or even shutter their doors altogether in mainland China, it remains to be determined how the ongoing COVD-19 outbreak will ultimately affect luxury brands’ bottom lines.

China has locked down an unprecedented 60 million people in an effort to curb the spread of the virus, which has hit hardest in the city of Wuhan and surrounding towns in the Hubei province.
