At Isabel Marant, ‘90s supers Carolyn Murphy and Valletta walked alongside their contemporary counterpart, 21-year-old Gigi Hadid. Older models (over 30, 40, 50 and beyond!) were the shining stars of Fall 2017 fashion month, and we’re here for it.As Paris Fashion Week has come to a close, we’re left to reminisce about Dior’s dreamy sheer dresses, Carven’s rosy pink coats, and Saint Laurent’s slouchy crystal-covered boots. But this fashion month also gave us something new to remember; how those clothes look on women of all ages, as we saw a convergence of older women on the runways (at least, older than the 22-year-old norm), from some of our favorite ’90s supermodels to grown-up ladies who lunch, including Canada’s own Sylvia Mantella.This season we witnessed an epic reunion of models as they walked for Isabel Marant, as well as for Simone Rocha in London, Dolce & Gabbana in Milan and Eckhaus Latta in New York.

General Electric slashed its quarterly dividend and announced it will restructure its power business, as the industrial conglomerate struggles with sagging profits and a spate of bad news.The company announced a $22 billion charge in its power division and swung to a third-quarter loss that was bigger than most industry analysts had expected.The company on Tuesday cut its dividend to a penny, from 12 cents per share, a move that could hurt individual investors who rely on income from dividends.But cutting the dividend will allow the company to keep about $3.9 billion in cash each year, the company said.“It has become clear to us that we need to simplify the business structure,” said GE CEO Larry Culp in a conference call with investors.“GE has considerable strengths. The talent here is real. The technology is special. And the global reach of the GE brand and our global relationships are truly impressive. But GE needs to change. Our team knows this,” said Culp, who last month replaced John Flannery as CEO after only a year on the job.The Securities and Exchange Commission and Department of Justice are both investigating GE’s $22 billion write-down, said GE Chief Financial Officer Jamie Miller, adding to ongoing investigations into previous problems at GE. The SEC was already looking into how GE took a $15 billion hit after a subsidiary, North American Life & Health, miscalculated the cost for the care of people who lived longer than projected. And the company said in February that the Justice Department may take action in connection to an investigation into GE’s subprime mortgage loans business.Miller said the $22 billion charge was largely the result of GE’s acquisition of Alstom. GE bought the French company’s power and grid business in 2015 just before the gas turbine market peaked.“This team’s been through a lot the last several years,” Culp said. “The company perhaps doesn’t enjoy the reputation in certain corners that we once did. But people here are committed to embracing that reality and changing it.”The company said it is splitting its power business into two separate divisions: a gas-focused division that combines its gas product and services groups and a second unit that will include steam, grid solutions, nuclear and power conversion.“This is a good opportunity for us to frankly manage this franchise better than we have,” Culp said.The planned split could indicate that GE is considering spinning off all but the gas-related parts of its power business, said Josh Aguilar, equity analyst at Morningstar.“It still has a future,” Aguilar said of GE’s core gas turbine business. “It helps with the intermittency with renewables.”On the dividend cut, the only surprise was that GE kept it at all, Aguilar said, but “unfortunately sometimes you have to go through some short term pain for some short term gain.”GE had been paying a dividend of 12 cents since December 2017, when it was cut from 24 cents, according to FactSet. Before that, former CEO Jeffrey Immelt cut the dividend from 31 cents to 10 cents in 2009, which was the first time the company had reduced its dividend in decades.For the period ended Sept. 30, GE lost $22.8 million, or $2.63 per share. A year earlier the Boston company earned $1.3 million, or 16 cents per share.Excluding the $22 billion charge tied to its power business and other items, earnings were 14 cents per share, which was 7 cents short of expectations, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research.Revenue declined to $29.57 billion from $30.66 billion, which was also short of expectations.GE will likely miss its full-year earnings targets due to problems with the power division, Miller said.In morning trading, GE shares added a dime to $11.26._____Elements of this story were generated by Automated Insights (http://automatedinsights.com/ap) using data from Zacks Investment Research.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is proposing changes to Medicare’s prescription drug benefit that would affect people’s costs over the next few years.Officials say their goal is to lower costs and modernize Medicare, the government health insurance program that covers about 60 million seniors and disabled people. Some proposals could create winners and losers among seniors, insurers, middlemen and drugmakers.The changes include more leeway for insurers to exclude a specific drug in Medicare’s six “protected classes” of medications. Also, use of e-prescribing would grow.And insurers could require “step therapy” for drugs given in a doctor’s office, which means patients first have to try a lower-cost drug.The administration also wants changes to Medicare rules so rebates from drugmakers get passed on to beneficiaries at the pharmacy.Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, The Associated Press
New Delhi: Skipper Shreyas Iyer would look to sort out his team’s lower-order woes and strive for consistency when Delhi Capitals face a rampaging Sunrisers Hyderabad in an IPL match here on Thursday. A dramatic lower-order collapse against Kings XI Punjab exposed Delhi’s batting frailties and Iyer would look to plug those holes to stand a chance of taming Sunrisers, who have been on a roll with back-to-back wins. A new look Delhi made a rampaging start to the season with a superb win over three-time former champions Mumbai Indians but since then they have struggled with their lower-order. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhDelhi are currently fifth in the eight team standings with two wins and as many loses after four games and consistency is something which they would be looking for. Delhi had failed to score six runs from the last over against Kolkata Knight Riders, thus taking the match to Super Over and it was only due to Kagiso Rabada’s superb yorkers, they had managed to scrape through in the end. However, Delhi’s lower-order came unstuck against Kings XI on Monday night when they inexplicably lost seven wickets for eight runs to lose the game by 14 runs. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterDelhi were 144 for three in the 17th over, chasing 167 before being bowled out for 152 in 19.2 overs. “I am really speechless. Really disappointing. It is a crucial match and losing such matches is not going to benefit us. Mentally we need to train ourselves – we are getting good starts, need to finish better,” Iyer had said. Rishabh Pant, who played a superb knock of 78 to pile up a mammoth 213 against Mumbai in the first match, has been the highest run-scorer for Delhi while the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Iyer and Colin Ingram too have been among runs. The bowling department has been led by Rabada, while they also have Kiwi pacer Trent Boult and Ishant Sharma in their ranks. Young Nepalese leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane too has performed well so far for Delhi. But the real contest on Thursday would be between Delhi pacers Rabada and Chris Morris against the marauding Sunrisers pair of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. The pair of Warner and Bairstow have been in scintillating form this year, sharing century-plus opening stands in all their three matches so far. After a 118-run opening stand against KKR in a losing cause, Warner and Bairstow continued their dominance up the order with 110-run and 185-run partnerships against Rajasthan and Royal Challengers Bangalore. In fact, both Warner (100 not out) and Bairstow (114) blasted a century each during Sunrisers massive 118-run win over RCB in the last game. On road to redemption, Warner has looked ominous as he blasted 69 off 37 balls against Rajasthan, before a whirlwind 55-ball unbeaten 100 blew away RCB. Besides, he started the season with a 85-run knock against KKR. After the six-wicket defeat to KKR in their opener, Sunrisers roared their way back into the tournament, largely riding on Warner and Bairstow’s exploits and come Thursday, they would be eyeing a hat-trick of wins.
New Delhi: BJP National Secretary RP Singh on Thursday registered a complaint with the Chief Electoral Officer in Delhi, in connection with a Parent-Teacher Meeting called by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, saying that the meeting is being held to publicise the Aam Aadmi Party under false pretexts. The meeting has been scheduled for April 20 in a government school run by the Delhi government. Singh said, “The Deputy CM of Delhi is going to misuse this PTM for the publicity of AAP with the help of a committee on the pretext of a meeting with the parents of children studying in Government schools.” Singh said that Sisodia is trying to influence the 2019 Lok Sabha polls by holding this meeting at the cost of the public exchequer and also claimed that it is a violation of the Model Code of Conduct. The BJP leader said that while the meeting has been called to suggest ways to improve students’ ability to learn and make the education system better, most of the team that is to meet the parents are party workers.
