Best micellar waters to cleanse your skin

Once a well guarded secret among beauty experts, micellar water is now considered the ultimate skincare staple.

You no longer need to maximise your liquid allowance travelling from France across the channel – filling your case with as many bottles as you can carry. The beauty hero is now ubiquitous, stocked at every drugstore and online retailer with a seemingly endless selection to choose from, all of which boast unique skincare benefits.

What is micellar water?

Micellar water was created in 1991 by Bioderma and immediately shook up the way in which people would remove their makeup. Considered by many to be a one-step solution, it was designed to combine both cleansing and toning in one fell swoop. The liquid removes even the most stubborn of foundations or waterproof mascaras, excess sebum and other impurities like dirt and grime without stripping your skin of its natural moisture.

Baltimore teacher delivers for her school families

Sarita Sullivan quit her job in Washington, D.C., five years ago and moved to Baltimore to make a difference in the aftermath of Freddie Gray’s death.

“I felt like I needed to do something more,” she said.

She quickly fell in love with the city, living in Mount Vernon and Charles Village before moving to her current neighborhood, Midtown.

She became a teacher in the hope of making a difference in the lives of the next generation.

This $3 billion online education company is seeing a ‘paradigm shift’ due to coronavirus

As more and more colleges weigh their options for adding online education in the fall, one online ed company is reaping the benefits of the shift away from lecture halls.

Industry leader 2U (TWOU) helps big name universities like Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and dozens of others offer educational programs online and as its CEO explained to Yahoo Finance Tuesday, business is booming.

“Over the last three months, we’ve spoken to more presidents and provosts than we had in our entire 12-year history,” CEO Chip Paucek told Yahoo Finance’s YFi PM. “So this is definitely a paradigm shift moment for online ed without question.”

As Paucek highlights, many colleges had been caught off guard when the coronavirus pandemic first hit back in March. Shifting to online classes for many meant little more than a Zoom video conference with a professor. With 2U’s tech, the company is offering the prospect

Santa Cruz Students Likely Won’t Return To School This Fall

SANTA CRUZ, CA — The Santa Cruz County Office of Education confirmed Monday that it does not anticipate students will return to in-person classes in the fall.

That’s because Santa Cruz County met the criteria for the state monitoring list, which indicates state public health officials are keeping an eye on concerning COVID-19 statistics, wrote Santa Cruz City Schools Superintendent Kris Munro and other county schools officials in an open letter Monday. Of particular concern was the fact that the COVID-19 case count has been higher than 100 cases per 100,000 people for more than three consecutive days.

While Santa Cruz County had not been added the state’s list as of Tuesday evening, county Health Officer Gail Newel previously said that she expected Santa Cruz County to join its neighboring counties on the monitoring list.

In order for a school district to open for in-class instruction, it must be in

Can these Dr. Seuss decals help digital collectibles catch on?

For generations, kids collected stickers, comic books, and baseball cards. But for many of those raised in a digital world, such pastimes seem quaint or obsolete—raising the question of how you collect in the age of the Internet, where everything is easily copied.

A company called Dapper Labs believes it has the answer and, on Tuesday, it announced its latest stable of digital collectibles in the form of Dr. Seuss decals. Starting next year, kids and others will be able to buy digital packs of stickers featuring characters from The Cat in the Hat, The Grinch, and other famous works by Seuss.

According to Dapper Labs CEO Roham Gharegozlou, families will be able to store the Seuss offerings—like those pictured below—in an online sticker book, and also sell or trade them.

The decals are being launched with the backing of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
