U.S. Census Bureau officials on Thursday recapped the challenges of executing the nation's head count, which included hijacked personal protective equipment for census takers, difficulty getting access to tribal lands because of pandemic restrictions and worry that nonprofits wouldn't want to partner with the statistical agency because of the Trump administration’s failed effort to add a citizenship question to the census. The assessment of the once-a-decade census by top Census Bureau officials came during a virtual meeting of the bureau's National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic and Other Populations. Tim Olson, who led the data collection efforts for the 2020 census, acknowledged that bureau officials, before the start of the head count, worried that community groups and nonprofits wouldn't want to partner with the agency in encouraging people to participate because of the Trump administration's failed efforts to gather citizenship information on U.S. residents.

Toby Melville - Pool/Getty ImagesPrince Harry and Meghan Markle have used their son Archie’s second birthday as a fundraising call for “vaccine equity.”Accompanying a filtered new photograph of Archie, with his back to the camera and holding balloons, Harry and Meghan write on the website for their charity Archewell: “We have been deeply touched over the past two years to feel the warmth and support for our family in honor of Archie’s birthday. Many of you donate to charities on his behalf, and mark the occasion by giving back or doing an act of service—all through the goodness of your hearts. You raise funds for those who need it most, and continue to do so organically and selflessly. We remain incredibly grateful.”The couple write of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. “As of today, around 80 percent of the nearly one billion COVID-19 vaccine shots that have been given were administered in wealthier countries. While we may feel that normalcy is around the corner, we remind ourselves that in much of the world, and especially in developing countries, vaccine distribution has effectively yet to start.”Asking the reader “to contribute whatever you can—if you have the means to do so,” Harry and Meghan say they want “to bring vaccines to families in the world’s most vulnerable places.” A donation of $5, through charitable matching, becomes $20—the equivalent of four vaccine doses, they say.“We cannot think of a more resonant way to honor our son’s birthday. If we all show up, with compassion for those we both know and don’t know, we can have a profound impact. Even a small contribution can have a ripple effect. Together, we can uplift, protect, and care for one another.”The rest of the royal family—including the queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William and Kate Middleton—wished Archie happy birthday on social media.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Defence attorney says ‘fictional claims’ will be challenged in court
via Twitter/JubileeMuch like Marie Antoinette’s notorious line “Let them eat cake,” Paris Hilton’s “Stop Being Poor” T-shirt is a relic of history—or at least pop-culture history. And much like the French queen’s heartless quip, it didn’t really happen.The hotel heiress was photographed back in 2005 at her younger sister Nicky’s fashion show in Las Vegas. Her arms stretched high above her head, almost as if she was saying “ta-da,” Paris, then 24, is seen smiling on a stage wearing a low-rise pink maxi skirt and the statement-making white tank top.But 16 years later, Paris has taken it upon herself to set the record straight, explaining that the iconic image that became a summation of Paris’ devil-may-care party-girl persona in the early aughts had been Photoshopped with the blasé phrase.“I never wore that shirt,” she said in a TikTok. “Everyone thinks it’s real, but that’s not the truth.” Paris then showed the real photo from that event, with her shirt reading “Stop Being Desperate.”Digital artist Jubilee came forward as the culprit on Monday. “LMAO omg Paris Hilton made a TikTok abt the shirt I photoshopped,” she tweeted. Paris quickly responded, “OMG I always thought a paparazzi agency edited it.”“So hilarious & iconic,” she added. “I thought it was funny when it came out, but I also didn’t want to insult people by thinking I would wear that.”LMAO omg paris hilton made a tik tok abt the shirt i photoshopped 😂😂😂😭 pic.twitter.com/UijoRBJDVc— Jubilee ❣️ (@16pxl) May 4, 2021 Jubilee tells The Daily Beast via Twitter DM that on a whim late one night in May of 2013, she came across the original photo on Tumblr. “I thought the juxtaposition of her flamboyant ‘ta-da’ pose and message on her shirt was hilariously contradictory, so I wanted to push that a little further,” she says.But she never thought that people would think the image was real, let alone have such a visceral reaction to it. “The response definitely surprised me,” she admits. “It got a lot of notes really fast, then articles were written about how she was an awful person for wearing it and it made me feel pretty bad because honestly, I was just trying to make a funny shirt.”To have Paris acknowledge the image exactly eight years after she had posted it is surreal, Jubilee says. “It came full circle on the perfect day.”Overall, Jubilee finds the whole interaction hilarious and Paris seems to have no hard feelings, even inviting Jubilee on her podcast “This is Paris” on Wednesday to talk about it all.The shirt was brought up while Paris was hanging out with a friend and they were discussing some of her most iconic outfits. When the friend, who happened to work at TikTok, mentioned the “Stop Being Poor” tank, Paris had to explain it was Photoshopped.“I assumed some people thought it wasn’t real because the real shirt was online,” she said.“Looking back at that time, I know that some people took it as light-hearted and saw it as a joke, but I definitely had a moment of insecurity where I didn’t want people to think I would wear that shirt. I would never want to offend anyone and telling people to ‘stop being poor’ is just the opposite of my personality.”“Some people already had this perception of me that wasn’t always positive, so this shirt just added to that stereotype that some people judged me to be,” she continued. “So, it was really hard for me to have people thinking that I would wear something like this.”“The last thing I would have wanted for people to see me as [is] someone who’s entitled or thought that she was better than other people. It’s just not me at all and people that know me and know my heart know that despite appearances, I’m not that way at all.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
