Christopher & Banks added to the Corridor Search business directory

The Coralville Courier is pleased to announce the addition of Christopher & Banks to the 'Women's Wear & Accessories' category in the Corridor Search business directory.

Christopher and BanksPutting Her First

When Gil Braun opened the first Braun’s Fashions in Minneapolis, Minn., in 1956, he opened it with “her” in mind: local women who were full of life and wisdom, confident in their beliefs and in search of styles that made them feel fabulous at a price they would love.

That spirit continued when Braun’s Fashions opened its first stores under the Christopher & Banks banner in 2000. The same year, the company introduced CJ Banks, opening 20 stores designed to meet the need for sizes 14-24 in the underserved women’s apparel market.

Today, Christopher & Banks operates more than 500 stores nationally, and still focuses on putting “her” first, providing our customers with style, value and service that help her look fabulous and feel amazing, every day and for life’s special moments. Missy, women’s and petite sizes are available in stores and online for our customers’ convenience.

Women Push for Gender Equality on GoTopless Day |

HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — Women around the country are taking off their tops on GoTopless Day, a day that promotes gender equality and women’s rights to bare their breasts in public.

GoTopless Day is celebrated annually on the Sunday closest to Women’s Equality Day, marking the day American women earned the right to vote.

A group of about 50 women and men were walking topless in the oceanside Los Angeles neighborhood of Venice, behind a giant, inflatable pink breast that had the phrase “equal topless rights” written on it. One marcher carried a sign that said: “My Body Is Not A Crime.”

A few dozen women, and some men, went topless as they walked down Broadway in New York City. Onlookers gawked and took photos as the parade participants went by.


Dodgers hold Cubs to four hits, take series

LOS ANGELES - Corey Seager has become an NL MVP Award candidate as a rookie with timely homers and a big batting average.

He made himself the difference in a game Sunday just by running hard to second base.

Brock Stewart and four relievers combined on a four-hitter and Andrew Toles scored on a fielder’s choice in the eighth inning thanks to Seager’s hustle, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs 1-0.


Big Ten football: Five questions for 2016 | Iowa Hawkeyes Football |

Is Iowa capable of repeating its 12-0 run through regular season and winning the West again?

The chances of C.J. Beathard and Desmond King leading the Hawkeyes to another berth in the Big Ten Championship Game are realistic. No team in the division has as many key pieces returning as Iowa, which will build around a strong ground game and a defense which returns seven starters. History illustrates that another unbeaten regular season could be a challenge. The last time Iowa accomplished consecutive unbeaten seasons – 1921 and 1922.


Bears cut 10, including former Redskins fullback Darrel Young | Chicago Sun-Times

The Bears decided to explore using a two-back set this offseason, and doubled down in Bourbonnais when they signed former Redskins fullback Darrel Young to challenge Paul Lasike.

After Young was one of 10 players cut Sunday, though, it’s fair to wonder whether the Bears will play with a fullback at all.


Anthony Weiner's Twitter account disappears - POLITICO

The Twitter account for former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner is no longer active Monday, hours after the New York Post reported on another sexting scandal between the husband of Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin and a woman he described as "literally a fantasy chick," according to the report.

Weiner told the Post that he and the woman “have been friends for some time," with screenshots dating back to January 2015.

Mike Thayer's Carb-Check Diet: Yes, you can still enjoy a big breakfast!

Mike Thayer 2016By Mike Thayer

Veggie egg scrambleBeing on a 'diet' doesn't mean you have to sacrifice great flavor or nutrition.  Yes, you too can eat breakfasts like bacon and eggs every day and lose weight!

Pictured right, a veggie egg scramble (mushrooms, onion, black olive) topped with American cheese and four strips of pepper bacon. What's missing? Nothing.... I used to eat something like this with a side of hash browns and toast.... but not anymore and the weight is coming off.

Combined with exercise, I'm also now just about off my high blood pressure medicine. I used to take a 40mg pill daily for that. I recently got reduced to a 10mg pill. In monitoring my blood pressure daily, I haven't taken a pill in four days now. I'm consistently at 120/80 and pulse in the '70s. Doc will be pleased and you can bet I am!

Hawkeyes have a shot at another big season | Iowa Hawkeyes |

IOWA CITY — Desmond King needed only a couple of days in January to decide. Yes, he would wait a year to become an NFL multimillionaire.

Instead of suiting up on Sundays this fall, the dynamic Iowa senior will become the first reigning winner of the Jim Thorpe Award — given annually for three decades to college football’s top defensive back — to return to the college game.

The biggest reason: The cornerback believes the Hawkeyes have another special season on the horizon.

“We have a great team coming back, a great quarterback in C.J. Beathard, a great defensive unit — in the linebackers, D-line and in the secondary,” King said. “I feel like we have a chance to change the results in Indiana.”
