Google just revealed its annual "Year in Search" trends for 2019, a detailed list of the top searches from users for the year broken down into categories, such as fashion or news.
One of the categories was "Home Style searches."
The top 10 searched terms for home styles on Google in 2019 include well-known aesthetics like "farmhouse style," "Art Deco style," and "modern style homes."

"Farmhouse style" architecture and decor was the number one searched trend in 2019.

Farmhouse style was popular throughout the last decade, so it makes sense that it would be the most searched home term in the final year of the 2010s.

Common themes of the rustic and airy style are exposed paneling, white cabinetry and walls, vintage or repurposed furniture, and accessories in retro patterns like gingham or plaid. 

Known for their symmetry, "colonial houses" were popular among Google users this year.

Colonial homes are one of the most popular residential architectural styles in America — you probably recognize the symmetrical window arrangement from suburban neighborhoods.

The style can be traced back to architecture built when America was under colonial rule in the 17th and 18th centuries, according to House Beautiful.

"Cape Cod house style" also made Google's list, indicating people are interested in the niche, coastal aesthetic.

The defining characteristic of a Cape Cod home is a large, central fireplace, according to HGTV, as well as shingle siding.

urgon was trending this morning, after what appeared to be a parody campaign page was created on Twitter called “Back Burgon”.
On the Richard Burgon rumours... A source close to the shadow justice secretary tells me he plans to run to be Labour’s deputy rather its leader.Burgon will back Rebecca Long Bailey to be Labour’s first female leader. RLB is widely expected to stand but has not yet confirmed.
So this would make Rebecca Long-Bailey and Richard Burgon, who is secretary of the Socialist Campaign Group, the left-wing slate.

The editor of Labour List reports that NEC members are concerned the leader’s office is trying to “cling on to power”.
NEW: Labour NEC members are worried about the centralisation of crucial decision-making now. One tells me they’re “concerned the leader’s office are trying to cling onto power by refusing to let the full NEC meet until late January“. (THREAD )
Instead the small NEC officers group is going to decide the leadership election timetable, I’m told.
Why is that important? Because several NEC members have left the ruling body after becoming MPs this week and the votes would be tighter now.
The NEC officers group has also just become even smaller, without Tom Watson or Claudia Webbe. It is now just six people.

Today is Prince Charles’s 71st birthday, and in honour of the special occasion, we all get a special gift—a new look at royal baby Archie Harrison from when he was just a wee babe at his royal christening back in July. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared this never-been-seen photo on their official Instagram page as a tribute to the Prince of Wales, showing their little one looking over at his grandfather with the sweetest pensive expression on his face.

Take a look:

Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales – Sir, Pa, Grandpa! Photo credit: Chris Allerton © SussexRoyal

A post shared by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@sussexroyal) on Nov 14, 2019 at 1:22am PST

If you’ll remember, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex only released two images from the private royal christening they held for baby Archie on July 6.

Meghan and Harry say baby Archie is crawling and has two teeth!And while we’ve been getting a few small glimpses of the little one’s growth throughout the last four months (like his two teeth! And his cute ginger-y hair! And that he’s starting to crawl!), it’s nice to see this throwback to that special day. This photo is especially sweet since it’s the only photo they’ve released of the three of them together.

Prince Harry and Meghan are also confirmed to be flying to the U.S. for the upcoming holiday season to spend Archie’s first Christmas with Meghan’s mother, instead of staying in the U.K. with the Royal Family.

Buckingham Palace: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month. Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria."

— Omid Scobie (@scobie) November 13, 2019

While this may seem a bit scandalous, according to Hello! Canada, it falls in line with a precedent previously set by other Royal Family members. (Back in 2016, Prince William and Kate Middleton skipped the Royal Family get-together during Princess Charlotte’s second Christmas and instead spent it with Kate’s parents.) The Queen is said to be in support of the decision as well.

We hope they enjoy their “extended family time” away, but hopefully they share some new pictures of Archie while they’re stateside. Wouldn’t it be adorable to see the whole fam in matching Christmas PJs—or at least a cute “Baby’s First Christmas” holiday outfit for Archie?

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are doing everything together these days!

The power couple got tattooed by Kane Navasard on Tuesday — and although their ink blots didn’t match, it was still a very special occasion for the Havana singer because it was her very first tattoo!

The Cuban songstress had an inspiring movie quote written on her finger, while Shawn got the letter “A” behind his ear for his sister, Aaliyah.

For those who want more context, the scene in the film plays out as follows:

Philip Henslowe: “The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.”

Hugh Fennyman: “So what do we do?”

Henslowe: “Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.”

Fennyman: “How?”

Henslowe: “I don’t know. It’s a mystery.”

“It’s a mystery” was also how Camila and Shawn’s relationship was best described up until a few weeks ago.

As fans know, the couple was first linked back in June after dropping their steamy second duet Señorita. While they tried to play coy about their relationship for a few months, the 21-year-old eventually revealed the two had been official since July 4.

He told fans at an October concert in Hindmarsh, Australia:

“We haven’t been dating for that long. We have been dating since July 4th officially.”

Since then, the pair have NOT been shy about showing off their palpable chemistry in public places — and spectators have taken notice.

A day after the 22 and 21-year-old musicians went viral for a PDA-filled outing at a Los Angeles Clippers game, actor Adam DeVine trolled them with a photo comparing the kissy young couple to the Workaholics star and his fiancée Chloe Bridges — who were also sitting courtside, but much farther apart from each other and fully absorbed in the game.

See the hilarious comparison HERE!

The post tickled DeVine’s social media followers and even got the attention of Shawn, who commented, “Lmafo incredible,” on the shot, as caught by Comments by Celebs.

We can’t wait to see what Shawnila gets in to next — and who ends up trolling them for it!

Students of color at Franklin & Marshall College are drawing the line on racism on campus.

They've held several high-profile protests to express their frustration with a troubling racial climate at the Pennsylvania college that they say has been tolerated for far too long. They've also sent a clear message to administrators: we're fed up and we're holding you accountable.

The students' concerns boiled over into protests and rallies last week after several athletes from the men’s basketba

ll and soccer teams dressed up in racist and culturally insensitive costumes for Halloween, LancasterOnline reported. The costumes depicted Hispanic, Asian and African stereotypes. Some students wore thick black mustaches and sombreros and took photos, many of which were posted on social media, posing as mascots for José Cuervo, a popular brand of Mexican tequila. Another student dressed in a pointed hat with a ring of soy sauce packets around his neck, and one wore a dashiki, a traditional African garment. These types of costumes have cropped up regularly on Halloween at various college campuses across the country and are a constant source of controversy and anger.

The students who wore the offensive costumes have “expressed remorse for their actions and are in the process of identifying opportunities to teach others from their mistakes so there is broader cultural understanding and sensitivity," said a letter to the campus signed by President Barbara Altmann and other college administrators The college is now determining disciplinary measures as part of the student code of conduct process, the letter said. The athletes apologized during a college forum on Nov. 6 at which students of color gathered to express their frustration with the actions of their peers and the college’s handling of past racist incidents, said Trinity Tran Nguyen, a sophomore who is on the executive board of the Asian American Alliance, a student group.

“I felt that with the perpetrators coming in, it was them invading a safe space,” Nguyen said of the forum. “They did apologize, but I don’t think that’s enough. How many games are they going to be benched for? Benching them one game, is that enough? What are the coaches going to do; what is the athletic department going to do?”

The disciplinary measures that the college is pursuing are between the offending students, F&M and the college’s athletic department, said Peter Durantine, the college’s director of communications.

“We don’t tolerate any racist actions or comments,” Durantine said. “When it’s brought to our attention, we address it.”

But the offended students view the incident as a reckoning for the college’s “lack of consequences for racist actions” in the past, groups that represent minority students on campus said in an open letter to the college earlier this week. The letter cited several other incidents of racism within the past three years.

The letter, which was published in F&M’s student newspaper, the College Reporter, noted that students wore racist Halloween costumes for four years in a row without consequence because the college failed to act. It was signed by 10 student organizations, including the Asian American Alliance, Mi Gente Latina and the African and Caribbean Association.

“It happened in 2016. In 2017. In 2018. And again in 2019,” the letter said. “Those are just the past few years. It should be noted, however, that students of color at F&M have dealt with racism on this campus since 1946. There were protests and sit-ins 50 years ago and there have been protests and sit-ins in the last three days.”

F&M’s current student population is 53.5 percent white, 4.7 percent Asian American, 6 percent African American and 10 percent Hispanic or Latino, Durantine said. More than 21 percent of students are international students, who are primarily from China, Nguyen said.

Students led a sit-in last Friday that disrupted the start of a men's basketball game. They occupied the court and forced officials to postpone the game, ABC27 reported. Nguyen, who was at the sit-in, said as soon as the national anthem concluded at the game, students took to the court and were booed and jeered at by spectators, some from the visiting York College.

“We remained silent because we didn’t want to cause any reactions that would cause harm,” Nguyen said. “We just sat there and said, 'we’re not going to get off this court until the game is canceled.' Parents were saying we should be ashamed of ourselves because of how long they drove to get there.”

Chelsea Reimann, director of the college's Alice Drum Women's Center and LGBTQ Student Life, joined the students as they sat on the court, Nguyen said.

“That was the first moment where we felt like the school listened to us.”

Todd Mealy, an adjunct history professor at Dickinson College​, said F&M has a deep history of racism on campus and students of color fighting against it dating back to the Black Power movement in the late 1960s. Mealy authored This Is the Rat Speaking, a book about the 1969 uprising of black students at F&M to end discrimination in the classroom and social spaces of the college.

Mealy believes it usually takes a significant event -- in this case the racist Halloween costumes -- to bring cultural and racial awareness to white students who have been taught throughout their lives to be “colorblind” by their parents, friends, the media and other authority figures. White students’ “willful ignorance” about racist behavior is especially prevalent at primarily white institutions and is strengthened when university and college administrators do not adequately discipline students for racism, he said.

“What the students at F&M are voicing now is that there’s a culture of dialectical racism that influences the actions of students to mock and intimidate students of color on campus,” Mealy said. “It sounds like the climate there among the student body is more like a colorblind body, where when informal race conflicts are found on campus, a conversation doesn’t take place.”

Mealy visited campus on Oct. 25 to discuss his book on the 1969 movement at F&M and said students shared stories about racist interactions with their white peers. The administration is aware of the climate at F&M and has paved a “sympathetic path” forward to address it following the Halloween costume incident, he said.

“As long as the students are heard, I think there’s going to be some positive outcomes that come from this,” Mealy said.

Administrators pledged in the letter to the campus that the college will hire a chief diversity officer to support students of color on campus and will create a bias reporting system where students can direct their concerns. The college is also planning to complete a campus climate survey by Nov. 15, which will help administrators “make informed choices” about how it addresses diversity and inclusion, according to statements from administrators. Forums on campus for students to express their ideas to administrators will continue, the letter said.

But the letter from students of color said there is much more left to be done. They demanded workshops on diversity and inclusion for new students during orientation, racial awareness training throughout all departments, a campaign specifically directed at stemming racism on athletic teams and Greek life organizations, and ongoing transparency from the Office of Student Life as it deals with reported incidents of racism.

“What we need to see are resources, not just all talk,” Nguyen said. “We want the school to be transparent. The campus culture is not going to be changed overnight, but there needs to be some consequences and written policy that they can point to and say ‘that’s wrong.’”

Altmann is expected to respond directly to the students' letter today, according to a message she send students on Sunday.

“Let me say up front that as Franklin & Marshall's president, I commit to you that the rally, protests and conversations will generate actions taken by the college to represent our best selves and our values as a community,” Altmann said. “I have heard your frustration and impatience for change. We will not miss this opportunity to cut through complacency, ignorance, insensitivity and racism. I firmly believe that the energy of this week will help to launch us to a better place.”

Pet obesity is a growing problem. Here’s the best way to address any unwelcome kitty weight gain
When the morbidly obese cat Cinderblock embarked on a weightloss journey two weeks ago, her one-paw-on-the-treadmill efforts to get trim went viral.

A survey of 2,100 pet owners by Direct Line pet insurance found that, in the past year, more than a million cat owners have been told by vets that their pets are overweight. Now, I have tried to get my cat to exercise more, but if I leave him outside for the day, he does much the same as he would do indoors – sleeps. Cats are notoriously lazy, so what can we do to help them effectively lose weight?
