The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically increased the amount of time spent at home. And now, it isn't just the place where you relax and regroup at the end of the day – it's also an office, daycare, eatery, gym, classroom and more.

With this in mind, Nayak teamed up with FrogTape® brand painter's tape to develop the interior design trends that will help consumers embrace a new way of living in the New Year.

Rwandan genocide suspect Félicien Kabuga was in custody in the Hague on Monday after his transfer from France following a United Nations court order. Kabuga, who was on the run for 22 years until his arrest in France in May, will soon be brought before a judge, the U.N. tribunal said in a statement. Last week a U.N. judge ordered the transfer to the Netherlands, rather than to a U.N. detention unit in Tanzania, out of health considerations amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Chicago Public Schools on Friday pushed back against the Chicago Teachers Union, which filed an unfair labor practice charge last week accusing the city's school district of illegally refusing to negotiate with the union on how to safely resume in-person classes amid health concerns.The union has "refused to even discuss" returning to in-person classes, school district spokeswoman Emily Bolton said in a statement.“We are disheartened that CTU continues to obstruct and mislead the public about the necessary planning measures needed to prepare for a potential return to safe in-person learning,” Bolton said. “While the district is doing everything in its power to plan for all possible scenarios, the CTU refuses to even discuss a return to in-person learning, even as hundreds of private schools in Chicago are open.”Chicago's public schools are scheduled to start in-person classes in phases for pre-K students and some special education students during the school year's second quarter, which begins in two weeks on November 9.“We don’t know what the health situation will be in a couple of weeks' time, but it would be irresponsible not to plan ahead while thousands of students miss out on valuable learning," Bolton added.However, CTU has accused the city's public school district of violating the union’s collective bargaining agreement by neglecting to negotiate the start of in-person learning.“We all want to return to our students. We don’t want to die doing our jobs, and we don’t want to be vectors for spreading illness or death to our students and their families,” CTU vice president Stacy Davis Gates said in a statement. “Yet the mayor and CPS simply refuse to lay out and discuss their plan for returning to classrooms, when we know from their own facilities records that these buildings aren’t safe.”The union has demanded that its certified industrial hygienists be allowed to inspect school air quality in the district's buildings. CPS meanwhile has said it has hired state-certified environmental hygienists to perform inspections, the results of which the district says it will release to the public before schools are opened. The district argued that CTU does not have any legal or contractual right to demand its own inspection.Coronavirus cases and hospitalizations have increased in the Chicago area, the city's positivity rate ticking up to 7.5 percent over the last week.Last week, Chicago ordered all non-essential businesses to close at 10 p.m., and more restrictions could be set in motion if cases of the virus continue to rise.

The struggling aerospace giant reported a profit of $1.45 per share in the third quarter of 2019, highlighting a historic fall from grace, driven by mismanagement and the COVID-19 pandemic. The aerospace giant's stock price has barely budged since July's second quarter report and is now trading less than two points below the close of that session. Boeing stock gained ground on Oct. 16 after European Union regulators ruled that the 737-MAX is once again safe to fly, but it has turned sharply lower on Monday morning in reaction to an unconfirmed report that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has determined the 737-MAX software fix for "certain planes" was not "adequate."
Britain's Prince Harry said it took him years to realise that unconscious racial bias existed and his eyes had been opened by spending time in his wife Meghan's shoes. The prince spoke during a conversation about racism with Patrick Hutchinson, the Black activist who was photographed by Reuters carrying a white man to safety during a scuffle between anti-racism protesters and far-right opponents in London in June. Harry told Hutchinson he saw him as a "guardian angel" protecting everyone at the demonstration.

Strategy Analytics – The development of conversational agents or chatbots that can engage in empathetic conversation with ‘real people’ has long been a goal of artificial intelligence (AI). But the majority of current mainstream chatbots used to increase customer engagement and reduce costs, are inflexible, prescriptive and unable to work outside of their scope. The inability to express emotion, attitude, or opinion, especially if the chatbot cannot solve a customer’s problem, leads to user frustration and cessation of use.
When you think of the holidays, scents of peppermint, fresh pine, and cinnamon likely come to mind. However, KFC is adding another fragrance to that cheerful mix—fried chicken.For the third year in a row, the fried chicken chain is shaking up the quintessential "chestnuts roasting over an open fire" smell with its fried chicken-scented 11 Herbs&Spices Firelog. The distinctive product is once again created in partnership with Enviro-Log, which makes eco-friendly firewood substitutes. It's currently on sale at select Walmart Stores, but only until supplies last. (Related: 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply)The firelogs sold out last year at Walmart within 24 hours, so brace for high demand. A pack of firelogs is only going for $15.88 this year, down from $18.99 in 2019. You can head to Walmart to pick up your logs in person or order online and have them delivered straight to your door. (Speaking of Walmart, be sure to check out how Walmart Is Bracing For a Different Holiday Shopping Season This Year.)"Although this year may look different, we hope that by expanding our exclusive partnership with Enviro-Log and Walmart, people can once again grab a fried-chicken scented firelog, order a bucket of chicken from KFC, and savor the tastes, smells, and warmth of what has become our favorite holiday tradition," Andrea Zahumensky, KFC U.S. CMO, said in a statement.While these firelogs may smell exactly like a bucket of fried chicken, don't be deceived—they're 100% not edible.To stay on top of holiday product drops, be sure to sign up for our newsletter.

Fear is subjective: A movie that scared the pants off of you may have made one of your friends fall asleep. But we can at least form a general consensus around which movies are the scariest—whether for the time they were made, or for all time. These are the movies that have made us keep the lights on, that we maybe kind of regret watching, that we're still thinking about even years later. We went through the past several decades to come up with our list of the scariest movie that came out every year, from 1960 to 2019. Keep reading to see if your personal pick made the cut, and for more films we're still losing sleep over, revisit The Scariest Movies '90s Kids Can't Forget. 1960: PsychoWhile some black-and-white horror classics have lost their punch over the years, Psycho remains as terrifying now as it was 60 years ago—even when you know the big twist. And to see how the critics felt about the Master of Suspense throughout his career, check out our Ranking of Every Alfred Hitchcock Movie, From Worst Reviewed to Best. 1961: The InnocentsHenry James' The Turn of the Screw has been adapted again and again, most recently as the Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor, but the most effective version will always be the deeply unsettling The Innocents. 1962: Carnival of SoulsThe influential horror of Carnival of Souls likely inspired David Lynch and George A. Romero, as Roger Ebert once noted. And for more fun content delivered straight to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter. 1963: The HauntingForget the deeply disappointing 1999 remake—or the much scarier The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix—because nothing can compete with the chills of the first adaptation of Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel. 1964: The Masque of the Red DeathThe combination of director Roger Corman, star Vincent Price, and source material by Edgar Allan Poe was scary enough in 1964, although a plot centered around a deadly plague feels especially frightening in 2020. 1965: RepulsionPsychological horror may not have you leaping from your seat like jump scares in more contemporary films, but the nightmarish vision depicted in Repulsion is terrifying in a way that lingers. And if you are looking for more recent movies, choose from The Best Horror Films of 2020, According to Critics. 1966: Dracula: Prince of DarknessBy the time, Hammer Films made Dracula: Prince of Darkness, the studio had learned how to make a truly scary Dracula movie, and Christopher Lee had learned how to master the title role. 1967: Quartermass and the PitAnother Hammer Films Production—which you may have first encountered as Five Million Years to Earth—Quartermass and the Pit is a freaky time capsule of '60s sci-fi scares. 1968: Night of the Living DeadThere's no telling where modern zombie movies and TV series would be without George A. Romero's 1968 classic, which remains as harrowing and subversive as ever. And for more of the all-time greats, these are The Best Horror Films of All Time, According to Critics. 1969: The Haunted House of HorrorSwinging late '60s England mostly looked like a fun time, but not when there's a murderer on the loose, as in The Haunted House of Horror. 1970: The Bird With the Crystal PlumageThe Bird With the Crystal Plumage helped establish the Italian giallo genre in the U.S., and introduced Dario Argento as an exciting horror filmmaker, thanks in large part to the splashy, highly stylized violence. 1971: Let's Scare Jessica to DeathLet's Scare Jessica to Death has been compared to The Haunting and The Innocents—it may also have been inspired by The Turn of the Screw—and it's just as frightening as either. 1972: The Last House on the LeftThough certainly not for everyone, Wes Craven's shocking The Last House on the Left is considered a horror classic for a reason, and its scares are so disturbing that it was promoted with the tagline, "To avoid fainting, keep repeating, 'It's only a movie.'" 1973: The ExorcistWhen The Exorcist was released in 1973, it made some audience members faint and cry—and while it might not provoke the same reaction in modern viewers, it's likely to induce some nightmares. 1974: The Texas Chain Saw MassacreThere's a raw, unrestrained quality to Tobe Hooper's classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre that makes it feel like anything can happen, but that doesn't adequately prepare you for what's to come. 1975: JawsAt this point, Jaws is such a mainstream cinematic classic that it might be hard to conceive of it as the scariest movie of its year. Keep in mind, though, that the film is a big reason so many of us are still afraid of sharks. 1976: The OmenThere's just something unnerving about a bad kid, and they don't get much badder than young Damien in The Omen. 1977: The Hills Have EyesAnother early Wes Craven classic, The Hills Have Eyes is just as gritty, brutal, and relentless as the director's other films from the era. 1978: HalloweenThough not the first slasher film, Halloween popularized so many of the rules of the genre that it's sometimes easy to forget how genuinely frightening it is in its own right. 1979: AlienWhile the sequel, Aliens, offers standout sci-fi action, the original Alien is fully a horror film, a haunted house movie set in space where the villain isn't a ghost but one of film history's most terrifying creature creations. 1980: The ShiningWhether or not Stephen King is a fan of Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of his novel, The Shining delivers an anxiety-inducing performance from Jack Nicholson and some visuals we wish we could forget. 1981: Friday the 13th Part 2No offense to Mrs. Voorhees, but the Friday the 13th franchise really picked up when Jason took up the mantle as killer in Friday the 13th Part 2, which also happens to be the scariest film of the bunch. 1982: The ThingSure, the body horror effects of John Carpenter's The Thing will creep you out, but the feeling of paranoia the film instills in you is what really makes it so scary. 1983: CujoEven dog lovers can agree that few movie monsters are as terrifying as Cujo, a rabid St. Bernard with his eye on a mother and son trapped in a hot car. 1984: A Nightmare on Elm StreetThe '80s gave us plenty of slasher villains to remember, each with their own hit-or-miss franchises, but none can compete with Freddy Krueger, introduced in the iconic A Nightmare on Elm Street. 1985: DemonsDario Argento produced but did not direct this Lamberto Bava-helmed screamer. And while it might be more of a cult favorite, it did earn a spot on Bravo's The 100 Scariest Movie Moments. 1986: Henry: Portrait of a Serial KillerIf the '80s slasher was all about creating new larger-than-life movie monsters, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer terrified audiences by portraying a killer grounded firmly in reality. 1987: OperaAnother gorgeously gory Argento film, Opera is a movie that forces you not to look away, even if its methods are less violent than that of the killer who forces the heroine's eyes open. 1988: Dead RingersDavid Cronenberg's dark tale of twin gynecologists, very loosely based on a true story, continues to make Entertainment Weekly's updated list of the scariest movies of all time. 1989: Pet SemataryIt's hard to say what's scariest about Pet Sematary: the ghost of Victor Pascow, the memory of Rachel's sister Zelda, or—of course—the resurrected Gage Creed taking a scalpel to Jud. They'll all leave you screaming. 1990: Jacob's LadderLots of horror movies have memorable nightmare sequences, but Jacob's Ladder is a nightmare that won't end—and that's why it's almost certain to keep you up at night. 1991: The Silence of the LambsYou can debate whether or not Silence of the Lambs is truly a horror film or merely a very tense thriller, or you can just accept that it's unbearably frightening. 1992: CandymanTony Todd earned horror icon status when he took on the role of Candyman, and the film itself gave us something new to be scared of in the bathroom mirror. 1993: CronosThe first feature film from Guillermo del Toro has come to be appreciated as one of the greatest horror films ever made, and it still packs in ample scares amid the drama and fantasy that would become trademarks for the director. 1994: Wes Craven's New NightmareAfter a series of sequels that turned Freddy Krueger into something of a comedian, Wes Craven's New Nightmare made the character scary again by slashing right through the fourth wall and making him seem realer than ever. 1995: Lord of IllusionsLike Candyman, Lord of Illusions is based on a Clive Barker story, and perhaps that's why it has also left such a chilling impression on viewers. 1996: ScreamAfter three sequels—with Scream 5 on the horizon—the original Scream might not seem that scary. But think back to how you felt when you first watched Ghostface terrorize Drew Barrymore. Shudder. 1997: Event HorizonAlien taught us that in space, no one can hear you scream, and Event Horizon gave us some horrifying visuals that forced us to test that theory. 1998: The FacultyYou might have thought your teachers were evil in high school, but The Faculty took that concept and ran with it, resulting in a genuinely tense and unsettling sci-fi slasher. 1999: The Blair Witch ProjectThe found footage horror genre got a major boost with The Blair Witch Project, which seemed so real it didn't feel like a movie, and so scary that you were desperate it was. 2000: What Lies BeneathEven if critics didn't take kindly to What Lies Beneath, the image of Michelle Pfeiffer slowly drowning in a bathtub has been terrifying viewers for the last 20 years. 2001: Jeepers CreepersThough it does veer into some goofy territory, Jeepers Creepers got under people's skin in 2001: Even the Los Angeles Times praised it for "the scariest opening sequence of any horror picture in recent memory" in an otherwise mediocre review. 2002: The RingThe Ring is the rare American remake of a Japanese horror film that manages to be just as scary as the original—seeing it might not kill you in seven days, but it'll take you far longer to shake it. 2003: A Tale of Two SistersSouth Korean horror film A Tale of Two Sisters also got an American remake, but you should stick to the original, which is bold, ambitiously complex, and—oh, yes—really frightening. 2004: SawAs the Saw sequels got increasingly convoluted, the gore went up and the scares went down. The first movie, however, is still a shocker, and the psychological horror of its protagonists' predicament is downright freaky. 2005: The DescentThe Descent is a great reminder that caves are terrifying, with or without monsters terrorizing you. Try to watch it without any involuntary screaming. 2006: The Hills Have EyesAlexandre Aja's take of Wes Craven's classic is the only remake of another movie on this list to also make the cut. That's because it pays loving homage to the original while being brutal and seriously distressing in its own right. 2007: InsideAlexandre Aja's fellow French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo gave us this twisted home invasion thriller that reiterated how extreme the new wave of French horror could be. 2008: The StrangersHome invasion movies are always pretty scary, it turns out, but rarely is the fear as visceral as it is in The Strangers, in which the killers' notable lack of motivation is the true nightmare fodder. 2009: The House of the DevilA little bit haunted house movie, a little bit slasher flick, The House of the Devil is a stylish homage to '80s horror, and it can scare you just as much as the films that inspired it. 2010: InsidiousDirector James Wan has become one of the leading horror filmmakers in recent years, but it doesn't get any scarier than the original Insidious, which could earn a spot on this list for that one shot of the demon standing behind Patrick Wilson alone. 2011: AbsentiaAnother contemporary horror filmmaker with an impressive resume, Mike Flanagan got his start with Absentia, a spooky indie that creeped people out and heralded the arrival of an exciting new talent. 2012: SinisterHow scary is Sinister? Well, based on what it is scientifically proven to do to your heart rate, some people consider it the scariest movie of all time. 2013: V/H/S/2Horror in the 21st century has had several memorable entries into the found footage and anthology film genres, and they blended exceptionally well in V/H/S/2, a movie that gives you a front row seat to some real terror. 2014: It FollowsThe relatively simple story of It Follows might not feel like reinventing the wheel, and while a supernatural killer slowly approaching isn't new either, it's never been more pulse-heightening than it is here. 2015: We Are Still HereAnother film that feels very much like a throwback, We Are Still Here earned a lot of great reviews for its traditional horror feel, and a lot of screams for its well executed jump scares. 2016: Don't BreatheAfter his effective remake of Evil Dead, Fede Álvarez returned with a more original film, and some of the most stressful set pieces in any horror film in recent years. 2017: ItFor kids who grew up in the '90s, there may have been nothing scarier than Tim Curry's Pennywise. Nevertheless, Bill Skarsgård's shape-shifting clown in this more adult take on the source material has caused his fare share of terror. 2018: HereditaryOne of the most jarring films of the past decade, Hereditary refuses to play by the rules, which makes it a viscerally terrifying experience to endure—in the best way possible! 2019: UsWhile Jordan Peele's follow-up to Get Out might not be scary all the way through, the moment when the doppelgängers descend on the Wilson family is truly frightening, thanks in no small part to Lupita Nyong'o's dual performance.
