Whether it’s called a polo shirt or a tennis shirt, this short-sleeve garment is a fashion classic

PUTIN'S SECRET WEAPON Every day, the red line ticks up and down. Some weeks it trends higher, others lower.

When it stands as it did in late May at a comfortable eighty two percent, Russia’s elite breathes easy. When it dips as low at sixty two percent, as it did in 2011 when Putin announced his return for a third presidential term every resource is scrambled to reverse the trend at any cost. In recent times, that has meant anything from staging a lavish Olympic Games to taking the country to war in Ukraine and Syria.
