El Tiempo for Soccer   

An English--and a Spanish--language TV station in the Dallas-Fort Worth area do a deal.

Dallas-Fort Worth area TV stations trade weather for soccer. NBC's KXAS-TV will produce co-branded weather segments, completely in Spanish, for KFWD-TV 52 Telemundo . And TV-52 will give KXAS' "Sports Extra" weekly soccer wrap-ups in English. "We were seeking a partnership with an Hispanic station in the market," says Brian Hocker , KXAS vice president/programming and interactive business development. He says soccer wasn't necessarily the goal, but "we don't have soccer coverage anywhere to the extent that Telemundo has." TV-52's segments will concentrate on the Mexican Major Leagues and other leagues of interest to area residents. The agreement also includes a co-branded Spanish language Web site, with KXAS providing the Web space and design and TV-52 creating the content. As for the weather en Español, Hocker says KXAS chief meteorologist David Finfrock will produce the reports. Finfrock's conversational knowledge of Spanish, Hocker says, "has passed muster with the folks at Telemundo."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
