Before the President decreed silk scarves are an acceptable alternative to face masks, Dr. Deborah Birx, the response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, donned a different drape around her shoulders at the administration’s nightly press briefings.Since her appointment on February 26, Dr. Birx has been setting a silky fashion trend as part of the 22-person team that makes up the Coronavirus Task Force.Since her appointment on February 26, Dr. Birx has become the fashion favorite of the COVID task force and American’s can’t wait to see her “scarf du jour” artfully knotted around her shoulders.Just last month, Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan wrote a story in praise of her lovely foulards. And more recently, an Instagram account has appeared chronicling each of the pretty silk squares.The scarf account was created by Victoria Strout, a fashion-obsessed music marketing executive from Fort Worth.The account known as @deborahbirxscarves has a simple format. Each post is populated with a slideshow offering various vantage points onto one of the doctor’s many scarves. The captions are straightforward, providing the date of the scarf’s appearance and, if known, its label. “Me and a couple of friends would watch each press conference and talk about Dr. Birx’s latest scarf,” says Strout.“So one Sunday afternoon I thought, You know what, I’m just going to compile all the screenshots I’ve taken on Instagram.”So why does this all matter? Perhaps it’s because Dr. Birx’s affinity for scarves speaks to a collective nostalgia.FLOTUS Jackie Kennedy sported her babushka-style head wrappings on weekends in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. A typical Dr. Birx look consists of a prim dress, hosiery, and a waist-cinching belt; she ties the whole look together with a literal bow via her silken scarf which elegantly gives a nod to history.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has added Ball State to its 2020 home football schedule to replace the canceled Cy-Hawk Series game at Iowa. The Cyclones and Cardinals will play Sept. 12. Ball State was available because its game at Michigan was canceled as part of the Big Ten’s decision to play conference games only. Iowa State beat Ball State 38-0 in 1998 in the teams’ only meeting. The Cyclones will play their first four games at home and eight of their 12 at Jack Trice Stadium. === other 1A quarterfinal scoresLynnville-Sully 9, Wayne 4Lisbon 3, Newell-Fonda 0Clarksville 7, Akron-Westfield 6 (8 innings)=== 1A semifinals tonight7:00 — Collins-Maxwell vs. Lynnville-Sully7:30 — Lisbon vs. Clarksville=== 3A quarterfinals TuesdayDavenport Assumption 15, Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley 0 (3 innings)Williamsburg 3, Algona 1=== 3A semifinals this afternoon4:30 — Albia vs. Mount Vernon3:00 — Davenport Assumption vs. Williamsburg=== 4A semifinals today11:30 — Winterset vs. Dallas Center-Grimes1:00 — Carlisle vs. North Scott=== 5A semifinals today11:00 — Cedar Rapids Kennedy vs. Muscatine12:30 — Fort Dodge vs. Ankeny Centennial == other 2A quarterfinal scoresNorth Linn 10, Ridge View 0 (5 innings)Louisa-Muscatine 6, Underwood 1Ogden 5, Mount Ayr 2== 2A semifinals this afternoon5:00 — North Linn vs. Northeast3:30 — Louisa-Muscatine vs. Ogden FORT DODGE — Neveah Hildebrandt socked a solo homer in the bottom of the first and then ended the game with a walkoff single, leading Northeast of Goose Lake to a 5-4 win over Central Springs in the Class 2A quarterfinal round at the state softball tournament in Fort Dodge, as you heard on AM-1300 KGLO.

He will receive a $350,000 stipend for the season because he’s considered a non-voluntary absence. His contract terms won’t kick in until 2021. Pierce is working out at home in Alabama with the hope of rejoining the Vikings in the spring.
