Military Circle Mall in Norfolk has seen its ups and downs, new goals and untapped potential.

NORFOLK, VA – It’s been a Hampton Roads staple for over 50 years: Military Circle Mall in Norfolk has seen ups and downs, new goals and untapped potential.

The mall opened in 1970, with JB Hunter, JCPenney, Smith & Welton and Leggett as its mainstays. In 1981, our archival footage shows the mall flourishing, even before the American mall boom of the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In 1996, the mall underwent a $ 15 million renovation, followed by the construction of a new Sears three years later. But it didn’t take long for the mall’s rise to turn into its inevitable downfall.

In 2012, this new Sears would close, followed by JCPenney two years later. Since then, vacancies have plagued the mall.

But the past two years have been an unexpected redemption for the mall. As one of the region’s premier testing and vaccination sites, Military Circle Mall is a place thousands of people have gone to protect themselves from COVID-19.

And beyond the pandemic, there is still hope for Military Circle. The city is looking to redevelop much of the retail space and is currently seeking public input.

RELATED: Here’s What Military Circle Mall’s Redevelopment Plans Look Like & How You Can Comment On Them

There are three proposals in front of the city from three different development groups – including one from Grammy Award-winning artist and Virginia Beach native Pharrell Williams – all of them outlining different visions for the new mixed-use neighborhoods that will be installed on the site of the shopping center. mall.

There is no deadline for ending public comment, so any long-term vision for Military Circle’s future will remain long-term for now.

For now, it will remain primarily a destination for people looking for tests and vaccines. At least with that, the mall can proudly wear a new, hopefully temporary, badge as a beacon of hope during a global pandemic.

Over the past two years, artists around the world have made the COVID-19 pandemic an art form. Called “pandemic art”, this type of expression is built on an artist’s reactions to the rapidly changing global landscape. Some have used their art as a form of educational material on COVID-19, while others have used it to illustrate their emotional response to the challenges posed by the pandemic.

For Joyce Yu-Jean Lee, professor of art and digital media at Marist College, her interpretation of the pandemic translated into social and political commentary on the underlying impact of the virus.

Currently on display at the faculty’s exhibition at the Marist College Art Gallery, his piece China / Wuhan virus, Kung flu presents Lee’s creative perspective on the societal consequences of the pandemic. Diptych in the shape of a coronavirus, it tells the impact of the pandemic on China. Composed of two coherent pieces, the diptych comments on the racial tensions and social movements that were deeply involved in the pandemic chaos.

Each piece uses photographs Lee took on a pre-pandemic trip to China. The first piece is a snapshot of a construction site in a new arts district. The modernity of the arts district juxtaposes the traditional use of bamboo for Chinese scaffolding. The image serves to showcase China’s history, culture, and progress, but then becomes nothing more than its title once the photograph takes the form of the virus.

The photograph in the next room shows a temple which is a popular tourist spot for both foreigners and locals. Lee took this photo after being surprised by China’s use of cell phones. Separately, the pictures of a group of Chinese people and the shape of the coronavirus have two different meanings. But when they come together, they make a statement. They tell a story that actually fits the pejorative nicknames of the virus.

“I thought it was an interesting visual that the faces of the Chinese were pinned to the meaning of this virus, and I think that nickname is really intentional and had a big impact,” Lee said.

Using a photograph, Lee humanizes the people who have been affected by these harmful nicknames and hate crimes. But she illustrates the reality of dehumanization in these situations by cutting out the faces or partial faces of some of the people photographed. “There are so many ways these people have been hijacked by us,” Lee said.

Yet, like the pandemic, none of these works of art were planned.

Lee’s work which is now on display in the Marist Art Gallery was originally created for an exhibition at a local gallery in Poughkeepsie, Women’s Work Arts. Lee received a grant in October 2020 from Arts Mid Hudson to fund this art.

His pre-pandemic vision was to create an exhibit on transnational identity, with a particular focus on the Chinese diaspora present in the Hudson Valley. As a Chinese-Taiwanese-American artist, Lee was interested in exploring the social and political boundaries of transnational communities in his work.

But as the overall condition worsened, Lee’s work evolved.

COVID-19 has added a whole new layer to its artwork. The work Lee was creating before the pandemic began to strike him as irrelevant and futile.

Lee asked Arts Mid Hudson if she could change her exhibit given that the pandemic greatly affected her plans for the exhibit, and they supported her. His work developed from there.

Lee knew she wanted her show to react to what was going on in the world – it had to be timely and relevant. It was a stressful process to completely change the whole show, but it was also very exciting for her. “It seemed necessary,” Lee said.

The artwork evolved because of the pandemic, but also because Lee wanted to capture the Black Lives Matter movement and the anti-Asian hate crimes that were all happening at the same time. She saw an overlap in the history of the two groups with racism, so it all came together to inform her pieces. “Thinking of all the racial tensions that have arisen during the pandemic, this is the diaper that I think struck closest to me,” Lee said.

When Lee was asked to exhibit works in Marist’s gallery, she knew she wanted to include this diptych. Because Lee has been teaching remotely for the past few semesters, she decided this article seemed relevant to her, given that the pandemic consumed her life and greatly affected her teaching. “The faculty, because of my high regard for them, always bring incredible work and their selection process is impeccable,” said Ed Smith, gallery director and art professor at Marist.

Lee chose the form of the coronavirus because the form didn’t exist before the pandemic, but suddenly makes so much sense now. This figure is at the heart of his work and was produced using an innovative technique. The pieces were created through a UV printing process, where the ink in the photograph was cured in ultraviolet light. Lee wanted to return to objectivity, so she focused on doing concrete work. The photograph was printed on Dibond, a material made from two thin pieces of aluminum that cover a plastic center. Dibond allows art to be rigid, but also bendable and bendable. So while Dibond may be naturally flat, Lee was able to cut it in a way where it acted like a sculpture. She wanted to create something that was both 2D and 3D. Thus, leaving room for what she calls a “wall relief”.

“It’s so innovative how she turned a political statement into art and even took the form of the virus as inspiration,” said Sasha Tuddenham ’23. “I think it just shows how art, politics and science have always intersected.”

Today, Lee revisits his exploration of transnational identity. She worked in Marist’s fabrication lab using laser cutters and creating woodblock prints. Her COVID pieces have echoed in her current art and directly inspired her to do even more experimentation.

There should be no more “going back” to an earlier topic in the New Year, according to Lake Superior State University’s influential annual bad words list.

The internship, a modern alternative to ‘I’ll get back to you on this,’ has been used frequently by White House press secretary Jen Psaki over the past year, as she repeatedly dodged questions. journalists.

Her overuse of the term led to several conservative memes and even a rap song compiling all of the times she said the phrase.

But the term “treats the symposium like an ice rink, as if we need to revert to an earlier topic,” University of Michigan researchers said in their most recent listing.

And one grammarian says it’s “the most overused phrase in business, government, or other organizations since” synergy, “which the university also banned in 2002.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki has been mocked for her excessive use of the term ‘back in circle’ during her press conferences. This term is now on Lake Superior State University’s annual forbidden words list.

Many other words on this year’s list were also banned for misuse, including “Wait, what” and “No worries”.

“Say what you think and think what you say,” LSSU President Rodney S. Hanley said in a statement. “I can’t get any easier or harder than that.

“Each year, the authors strive to suggest words and terms to be banned, paying close attention to what humanity says and writes,” he added.

The Michigan-based college has published its list of banned words and phrases every year since 1976, receiving thousands of entries each time. He publishes his new list every year on New Years Eve to “start the New Year off right, uh, tongue.”

Over the past year, people have submitted more than 1,250 suggestions for consideration, nominations not only from the United States, but also from Norway, Belgium, England, Scotland, Australia and the United States. Canada.

“Most people speak through informal speeches,” said Peter Szatmary, executive director of marketing and communications at LSSU. “This is the distinction the nominators made from afar, and our judges agreed with them.”

Although terms related to the COVID pandemic dominated last year’s list, LSSU officials say this year’s programming is more conversational, with just three words on this year’s list applying to the coronavirus.

“A takeaway from all of this about the act and art of disclosing something is that the more things change, the more things stay the same,” Szatmary suggested. “At the very least, it’s complicated.

Topping this year’s list of banned words was the phrase “Wait, what”, often used on social media, which those who named the term say is a “failed response to a statement to express astonishment, incomprehension or disbelief “.

Critics say he’s overworked.

The term “No worries” came in second, as it was used as an incorrect and often passive-aggressive substitute for “You’re welcome”. List contributors also said the term may be callous. “If I’m not worried I don’t want someone telling me not to worry,” they wrote. “If I’m upset, I want to discuss being upset. “

Other words on this year’s list related to current events, including the hackneyed phrase “the new normal” to describe living a pandemic, and “You’re on the mute,” with one contributor writing: “We are in two years working and visiting remotely. It’s time for everyone to find out where the mute button is.

‘Supply chain’ was also on this year’s list, which dominated the news cycle at year’s end as COVID-related staff shortages resulted in a backlog of supplies and merchandise. .

But as one proponent wrote, “Supply chain issues have become the scapegoat for everything that doesn’t happen or doesn’t happen on time and every shortage.”

Lake Superior State University 2022 Banned Words List

  1. Wait what? ‘ – Most often found in text or on social media, this ubiquitous imperative question is a “failed response to a statement to express astonishment, misunderstanding or disbelief,” explained one wordsmith. “I hate it,” added another, as the command request is an inaccurate method of conveying uncertainty or surprise to the speaker. “I don’t want to wait either,” continued the passionate second sponsor.
  2. ‘No problem’ – Named by writers nationwide for abuse and abuse, this phrase falsely replaces “You’re welcome” when someone says “Thank you.” Another mess concerns insensitivity. “If I’m not worried, I don’t want someone telling me not to worry,” one contributor explained. “If I’m upset, I want to discuss being upset. Despite its meaninglessness, the term is recommended to email senders by Google Assistant.
  3. ‘At the end of the day’ – More than twenty years after the initial ban of this sentence in 1999, the day is still not over for this misused, overused and useless expression. “A lot of times things don’t end at the end of the day – or even the ramifications of whatever happens,” one sage observed. Others view “day” as an imprecise measure. Today? Time present? Banishment in 1999: Overused synopsis of a conversation or debate, often by politicians and pundits.
  4. ‘That being said’ – The proponents cited this sentence as verbal filler, redundant justification and pompous posture. For example, “however” or “but” – even “that said” – does the job as a transition instead of verbosity. “Go ahead and say what you want already!” Demanded a participant. That being said, its usefulness is certainly in doubt. As the philosopher one commentator: “In the end, if you will, it already has been.
  5. ‘Ask a friend’ – Abuse and abuse by deception – because the friend is a trick. This cutesy phrase, often deployed in social media posts in a half-hearted attempt to deter self-identification, isn’t fooling anyone. Paraphrasing a sage, “Formerly used to avoid embarrassment, as in ‘Do you know a good proctologist? I ask a friend. Sometimes an occasional sitcom joke. Now a hackneyed label that has absolutely nothing to do with its antecedent. ‘
  6. Return circle ‘ – Treat the conference like an ice rink, as if we had to go back to our previous location to go back to an earlier topic. Let’s go back to find out why ban this jargon. It’s a conversation, not the Winter Olympics. According to one grammarian, “the most overused phrase in business, government or any other organization since ‘synergy’ – which we banned in 2002 as elusive and crass terminology of smart pants.
  7. ‘Deep dive’ – “The only time to dive into something is when entering a body of water, without going deeper into a particular subject or book,” chided one petitioner. Another stated that the people who float the phrase are not near a pool, lake, ocean or sea; thus, rather than diving deep, they wade shallow. A publishing ace asked himself, “Do we need” deep? I mean, does anyone dive into the shallow end?
  8. “New normal” – Over-exploited tote for the ways COVID-19 affects humanity – and finalist in ban last year for similar reasons. “Those who claim the old days, around 2019, are using this to unwittingly signal that they haven’t understood what ‘normal’ means,” one monitor explained. “After a few years is all of this really” new? ‘, speculated another. Banned in 2012 for recklessness, defeatism and apathy resulting from the company’s missteps.

Abuse and uselessness, therefore, due to incompetence. One insightful presenter summed up the problem: “We’re two years away from working and visiting remotely. It’s time for everyone to find out where the mute button is. Or as a summed up joker, “Hello? Hello?’
  10. ‘Supply Chain’ –Wordwatchers noticed the frequent and unfortunate appearance of this phrase towards the end of this year as the coronavirus persisted. “This is automatically included in the reports on consumer goods shortages or perceived shortages. In other words, a buzzword, ”concluded one analyst. “Supply chain issues have become the scapegoat for everything that doesn’t or doesn’t happen on time and every shortage,” remarked another. The negative result: ad nauseam overuse.

There are many reasons a person may need to apply for a payday loan.

Payday loans, or short-term loans, are easily accessible loans that don’t require a particularly high credit score to get. If approved, they can be paid in hours. They are a favorite among borrowers, due to their convenience.

Payday_Loan.png

Taking out a loan and not paying it back can hurt your credit score, so make sure you’re able to repay your loan if you’re approved, so borrow sensibly and for the right reasons.

This article will tell you some common reasons why people apply for payday loans:

Redundancy

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, global unemployment is at an all-time high. Losing your job can be devastating, especially if you have a family and other responsibilities. Many people take out loans when they are laid off, to support them until they are financially stable again. According to a company that offers payday loans in Lacombe, Alberta, if you’ve used up all your money and have nowhere to go, a payday loan company might be your best option. That said, some lenders may not lend to you if you don’t have a job because you may not be able to repay the loan.

Debt Consolidation

Some people take out loans to pay off other loans or debts. If you are heavily in debt, you may consider taking out a loan to pay it off. This may sound counterproductive, but it’s actually a very good idea. While you’re still in debt, you can clear all of your current debt and then repay your loan on a flexible repayment schedule. If you’ve been owing money to a lender for a while and they’re threatening you with court, additional interest, and debt collectors, then a payday loan is definitely something to consider.

Friends and family

In difficult times, the first people called upon are his family and friends. Unfortunately, asking family and friends for money can be very uncomfortable and strain your relationship. Instead of borrowing from your relatives, you can take out a personal loan. Although you will have to pay interest, you will be able to avoid awkward conversations and make your loved ones uncomfortable.

Holiday loans

After a year of confinement, we all need a good vacation. If you want to give your family a vacation, but can’t afford to pay for it all at once, you might consider taking out a loan. Holiday loans are very common. If you’re planning on taking out a vacation loan, try to take out a loan and pay for your vacation well in advance. This will allow you to get your flights cheaper and allow you to take out a smaller loan. If you wait a few weeks before flying, you may need to take out a very large loan.

Building loan

In addition to relieving you of financial uncertainty, payday loans can also help you build your credit score. When you have bad credit, it can be difficult to get credit cards, mortgages, and other big loans. Payday loans, as we mentioned earlier, regularly accept people with bad credit. This means you can use a payday loan to boost your credit so you can borrow larger amounts from other lenders. It’s definitely worth building your credit, even if your credit is currently good. It can always be better.

Vehicle repairs

You can never predict when your car is going to break down. If you don’t have a lot of spare cash, you might be unable to pay to have your car repaired if it breaks down. A payday loan can ensure that you are covered should this be the case. Since payday loans are usually repaid the same day they apply, this means people can get their car fixed and back on the road quickly.

pay bills

If you haven’t been paid enough this month or have had to miss work, you can take out a payday loan to pay off your bills. Most people’s bills are under $300, which means you won’t have to pay much interest if you spread your payments over several months. This will allow you to pay your bills and avoid payment defaults. You should always pay your bills on time. If you don’t, your gas and energy suppliers may start charging interest to your account.

Paying_Bills.png

Mortgage repayments

As we mentioned earlier, sometimes people take out loans to pay off other loans. This often happens with mortgage repayments. If a person is unable to work for a month and has no savings, it may mean that they are unable to pay their mortgage. Taking out a loan can be a great solution to this. This can allow people to get their mortgage payments under control and avoid falling into default, which could lead to them losing their homes. Mortgage repayments can be very expensive, especially if mortgage rates are not fixed.

Medical emergencies

If you live in a county where health care is not paid for by the government, such as in the UK, a loan can be very useful in the event of a medical emergency. This is especially true if you don’t have health insurance. Medical bills can cost an absolute fortune. If a person is unable to pay their medical bills, it may mean they cannot get life-saving treatment. A payday loan can help pay your medical bills and ensure you get the treatment you need. Remember, though, that most payday loans are capped at around $10,000.

There are many reasons why people take out payday loans. In this article, we have barely scratched the surface. In the end, anything that lets you down and prevents you from paying for something you need is reason enough to take out a payday loan.
