The Foundation Mistake a Lot of Us Make and What to Do About It

Choosing a foundation can be so tricky. When you’re shopping for a new one, it can feel like you’re Goldilocks searching for the product that is just right. And when you get your hands on the holy-grail foundation for you? Well, you hold on to it for dear life.

There are a lot of things to keep in mind when on the hunt for a foundation: Your skin tone and undertones, how much coverage you need, etc. There’s one shopping “mistake” I just learned about that I wish I knew a lot earlier: I wasn’t thinking about how my coloring is different throughout my face and neck. “We have different colors on our face,” says celebrity makeup artist Andreea Ali, whose clients include Natalia Vodianova and Izabel Goulart. “The forehead would usually be darker, and the neck is usually lighter. So try to find a balance that works between forehead,

Shopify; The Canadian tech champion taking on Amazon

When the pandemic forced Pizza Pilgrims to close its 13 stores in London and Oxford in March, the business went from making 30,000 pizzas every week to zero. Of the 276 staff, 270 had to be furloughed.

While they opened one store in April to manage delivery, founder Thom Elliot still needed to find another way to make up for the lost revenue. “I tried to think of something that would serve our customers, who kept calling us, and also keep us relevant during these times,” he says in an interview.

Mr Elliot and his team decided to create pizza kits featuring all the raw ingredients you need to make your own pizza at home, but to do that he needed to upgrade his website. That’s where Shopify came in.

The Canadian company offers the technology for anyone to create an online store and sell their products, with added features

Ocado’s online shopping promise has too high a price tag

“Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future” is a line often attributed to Nobel-prize winning physicist Niels Bohr. But when it comes to the long-term impact of coronavirus on consumer behaviour, the stock market seems to disagree.

In the US, companies such as Zoom, Peloton and Amazon have outperformed local indices as investors bet on a homebound future for white-collar employees. In the less tech-weighted UK market, attention has focused on names such as Flutter, the £18bn online bookmaker, and £16bn grocery-technology company Ocado.

The latter’s performance has been particularly breathtaking, as the “Microsoft of retail” has risen 66 per cent year to date, versus a drop of 18 per cent for the FTSE 100. Once London’s most shorted stock, Ocado’s rally has led to almost total capitulation from bears, with its short interest now so low that no investor has reported a negative position since early

City Of Napa Receives $975K In Federal CARES Act Grant Funds

NAPA, CA — The Napa City Council approved a spending plan Tuesday for $975,000 in grant funds the city received through the federal government’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security — CARES— Act.

Napa City Manager Steve Potter said the grant funds give the city “a much-needed opportunity to assist residents, local businesses and staff health concerns.”

The funds are part of the $2-trillion economic relief package passed March 27 by Congress that also included stimulus checks for American taxpayers. The city was restricted to spending the CARES Act funds on specific purposes related to the coronavirus pandemic, so it focused on providing assistance to local economically impacted community members and the business community. The money will also be spent on improvements to internal city operations and workspaces for city employees.

“While the funds will not make up for the revenues that have been lost due to coronavirus, they will

Kayak CEO Hints Company May Get Into the Hotel Business

There’s been speculation over the years about online travel companies getting into the hotel business, and Kayak CEO Steve Hafner teased as much during an interview on Thursday.

Hafner, who heads Booking Holdings brands Kayak and OpenTable, dropped the hint during a pre-recorded interview for Travel’s Path Forward: Online Travel, when discussing the company’s product roadmap during the Covid-19 hiatus.

Without providing much detail, Hafner teased an announcement about Kayak getting into the hotel business in some form beyond its traditional hotel referral and booking services.

“Soon we are going to announce our first forays into the hotel business,” Hafner said.

Asked whether we would see Kayak-branded hotels, Hafner said, “I wouldn’t be surprised if you did. Put it that way.”

He added another tidbit when discussing OpenTable and loyalty programs.

Later in the interview, Hafner discussed the integration of OpenTable’s dining services with sister company Booking.com, and he said

WASHINGTON — Younger children pose a smaller risk of catching and transmitting the coronavirus, a top pediatrician told Congress on Thursday, providing a scientific argument for why elementary schools could potentially open in parts of the country next month.

“School systems may consider prioritizing the return of younger children and taking additional measures to ensure physical distancing and the wearing of face coverings among older children,” Dr. Sean O’Leary told the House Education and Labor Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education on Thursday morning. 

The hearing was titled “Underfunded & Unprepared,” a sign of how House Democrats, who control the chamber’s agenda, view the matter. 

O’Leary, a vice chair for infectious disease at the American Academy of Pediatrics, also cited a South Korean

Cinnaminson Police Participate In Child Pornography Arrests

CINNAMINSON, NJ — The Cinnaminson Police Department is partnering with the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office to investigate technology-based crimes. As part of this partnership, law enforcement announced eight people have been arrested and charged with possessing and distributing child pornography.

They were arrested as part of a joint-investigation during the coronavirus pandemic that was dubbed “Operation Safe Quarantine.” None of those who were arrested are from Cinnaminson.

“The importance of these types of cybercrime investigations goes beyond just obtaining and presenting evidence in Superior Court; they stop our children from being further exploited, and prevent re-victimization by disrupting the continued dissemination of these sickening materials,” Cinnaminson Police Chief Richard Calabrese said. “It is imperative that all law enforcement agencies take an active role in helping to combat these types of crimes. That cannot be emphasized enough.”

Cinnaminson police have committed an officer to a long-term assignment with the prosecutor’s office’s
