Congo touts job creation, but unemployment still sky-high

An artisanal gold miner carries a sack of sediment in an abandoned industrial shaft at Makala Mine near MogbwaluStrong economic growth helped Democratic Republic of Congo create around 100,000 jobs per year from 2012-14, the prime minister’s office said on Tuesday, but unemployment remains above 40 percent in a country wrecked by war and corruption. Congo – which vies with Zambia for the title of Africa's largest copper producer – posted economic growth of 9.5 percent last year, and this should rise to 10.3 percent this year, Augustin Matata Ponyo's office said in a statement. His office did not spell out the methodology used for its unemployment survey but it appeared to ignore much of the informal economy, which provides jobs for many of Congo's roughly 67 million people.

Rihanna definitely stole the show at the Met Gala!

The 27-year-old did a wardrobe change, as there was no way that Guo Pei dress would make for easy movement.

She switched out for a more performance friendly outfit — high waisted satin pants and a stunning red-and-gold tube top that showed off the girls! Her red satin gloves gave a delicious Moulin Rouge look!

Ch-ch-check out clips (below) of the songstress performing Diamonds, Pour It Up, and B*tch Better Have My Money!

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Dasona Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

rc="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">

BOSS Black Dasona DressI love this bright, happy blue fit and flare dress from BOSS Black, on a good sale over at Bloomingdale’s.  I like the 3/4 sleeves, the round neck, the seam details, and work-appropriate length — lovely.  (Oooh: Nordstrom has it on the same sale and actually has more sizes.)  The dress is marked down to $357 (was $595).  BOSS Black Dasona Dress

This $139 dress is a dead ringer for it (but with elbow-length sleeves); here are two plus-size alternatives.

Continuing our rollout of Spring/Summer 2015 editorials, we hit the streets of New York to see how Levi’s Commuter’s latest collection blends in with the city around it. Outfitting artist and designer Ekene Ijeoma and photographer Laura Wilson in the brand’s seasonal gear and equipping them with new rides from Tokyobike, the Levi’s Commuter’s new goods fit in effortlessly with the culture capital around them. Ijeoma is seen in the 504 Regular Straight Shorts, Trucker Jacket and Raglan Shirt, while Wilson is captured in the high-rise Skinny Jeans and water-resistant Windbreaker. Unseen at first glance, a closer inspection reveals a number of bike-friendly and weatherproof features, such as reflective seams, water resistance and strong, stretchy fabrics for increased mobility.
