    A SHOPPING expert shared why Aldi has so many barcodes on its products. Avid Aldi shopper Lauren Greutman pointed out that one pack of butter had five barcodes on it - one on each of five sides of the box. 1One way Aldi is able to sell cheap produce is because they work with local farmersCredit: Getty But she revealed that the excess labels are not a printing error, but actually a key design decision. The packages have multiple barcodes because it helps cashiers scan items faster. Aldi doesn't want defective barcodes to hold up the line. Adding multiple barcodes onto one package ensures that the barcode will be scanned the first time. This hack helps employees work efficiently. Aside from the barcode hack, Aldi stores and employees have other ways to ensure customers have the best shopping experience. The store wants to ensure that all customers have a fair chance of purchasing some of its most popular items. To make sure that happens, one Aldi store removed certain prepackaged meat from its...

While China revamps its rulebook for tech, the European Union is thrashing out its own regulatory framework to rein in AI but has yet to pass the finish line.Str | Afp | Getty Images As China and Europe try to rein in artificial intelligence, a new front is opening up around who will set the standards for the burgeoning technology. In March, China rolled out regulations governing the way online recommendations are generated through algorithms, suggesting what to buy, watch or read. It is the latest salvo in China's tightening grip on the tech sector, and lays down an important marker in the way that AI is regulated. "For some people it was a surprise that last year, China started drafting the AI regulation. It's one of the first major economies to put it on the regulatory agenda," Xiaomeng Lu, director of Eurasia Group's geo-technology practice, told CNBC.

    A beauty enthusiast has shocked hundreds online after applying luxury high-end makeup on one side of her face and affordable chemist brands on the other only to find it looks exactly the same. Despite using different products, the full face of makeup looked remarkably similar and left many second guessing themselves as to which side was which.  Teresa, from Hobart, Australia, said the high-end makeup cost her $951 while the alternative budget products cost $134 on sale. The 51-year-old event sales manager put the products to the ultimate test and noticed how she looked after wearing the makeup for ten hours. Teresa, from Hobart, Australia, applied half her face with high-end makeup and the other side using makeup from the chemist. 'Can you tell which side is which?' she asked Facebook, adding: 'On the left side [my right in photos], I'm wearing a face full of cheap makeup, and on the right, I'm wearing high-end makeup.' Sharing images to a popular Facebook group, Teresa wrote: 'I did myself a little side-by-side test on the weekend (in case it went horribly wrong).'...

Fortunately, it turns out you don’t actually have to pay full price for prime performance because Dyson’s online outlet is chock full of generous discounts on a variety of their best-sellers.

    Target is being accused of racism after one of its stores put the darker shades of makeup in a security box, while the lighter shades were left unprotected. Eli Levi, 21, from New York City, was shopping in the popular department store chain when he noticed that darker tones of the Versed Luminizing Glow Drops were being kept inside a sealed plastic bin to prevent stealing, while the lighter ones sat on the shelf with no protection.   He took a video of it and uploaded it to TikTok, slamming the store and calling it 'racism at its finest.'

    New York (CNN Business)In 1986, three retail veterans opened a chain of stores in the southeast named Only $1.00. They were building upon the concept of a store they had stumbled across called Everything's A Dollar, and thought they could do it better. But Everything's A Dollar wasn't so thrilled to welcome the competition, so the company sued, forcing Only $1.00 to change its name. The executives came up with a different name: Dollar Tree.For 35 years, Dollar Tree (DLTR) sold toys, home furnishings, kitchenware, holiday decorations, stationary, party supplies, arts and crafts, books, food and household essentials for $1. Dollar Tree plastered big green and yellow "Everything's $1" circles throughout its nearly 8,000 US stores (Dollar Tree purchased the trademark of the brand that had once sued it)."I viewed the dollar-only concept as sacred. It was everything. Without it, we'd be just another discount retailer," Macon Brock, a Dollar Tree founder, said in his 2017 autobiography "One Buck at a Time." Dollar Tree was originally named Only $1.00 in 1986."Ditch the dollar, I believed, and we'd surrender our niche,"...

    Tatcha/Facebook When you buy through our links, Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more. Tatcha is a skincare brand that takes inspiration from centuries-old Japanese geisha routines.  The founder, Victoria Tsai, works with geisha and Japanese scientists to formulate the products. It's one of our absolute favorite brands at Insider Reviews. You can find it at Sephora, or Tatcha. Tatcha makes products that combine two qualities nearly everyone touts but almost no one gets right: gentleness and effectiveness. We know these two words sound annoyingly cliche when used together to describe skincare (like a food blogger describing their meal as "delicious" and "so good"), but when you have sensitive skin that takes a beating from city pollution, makeup, and sun as ours does, those are qualities that actually matter — and they're hard to come by sincerely.  Founder Victoria Tsai, a graduate of Harvard Business School, founded Tatcha on the principles and traditions from a 200-year old beauty manuscript on the beauty routines of geisha in Japan.

    By Jordan Valinsky | CNN Business Yahoo Answers, a question-and-answer platform that launched more than 15 years ago and became one of the largest troves of information — and misinformation — on the internet, is shutting down on May 4. The Verizon-owned website announced the platform’s cancellation Monday with a terse statement on Yahoo Answers’ homepage. The portal will go into “read only” mode on April 20 and avid users will have until June 30 to download content, Yahoo explained on its help page. “While Yahoo Answers was once a key part of Yahoo’s products and services, it has become less popular over the years as the needs of our members have changed,” Yahoo said in an email to Answers’ users obtained by the Verge. “To that end, we have decided to shift our resources away from Yahoo Answers to focus on products that better serve our members and deliver on Yahoo’s promise of providing premium trusted content,” the email continued.

    A new poll found that a majority of Americans want the United States government to purchase products made in the U.S.A., even if they come at a higher price than international products. 63% of Americans would like government agencies to buy American-made products in general, according to a Reuters-Ipsos poll released Tuesday. 62% of respondents reported they believe the government should strictly buy domestically made vaccines, but only 41% said it is not ok for the U.S. to buy other protective equipment, such as masks, from foreign countries. Although a majority of respondents favored the government buying products made in America regardless of price, their tune changed when asked about which products they themselves should purchase. The poll found that while 69% of Americans consider it important to have products made in the U.S.A., only 37% reported they would actually pay extra for those products compared to those made abroad. 26% of respondents said that they would pay more, but only by a 5% increase, and 21% said they would not be willing to go higher than 10%.

    First Corporation Pleads Guilty in Ongoing Criminal Antitrust Investigation into the Broiler Chicken Industry Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (Pilgrim’s), a major broiler chicken producer based in Greeley, Colorado, has pleaded guilty and has been sentenced to pay approximately $107 million in criminal fines for its participation in a conspiracy to fix prices and rig bids for broiler chicken products, the Department of Justice announced today. According to the plea agreement entered in the U.S. District Court in Denver, from as early as 2012 and continuing at least into 2017, Pilgrim’s participated in a conspiracy to suppress and eliminate competition for sales of broiler chicken products in the United States that affected at least $361 million in Pilgrim’s sales of broiler chicken products. The District Court accepted Pilgrim’s guilty plea and sentenced the company to pay a criminal fine of $107,923,572. “Today’s guilty plea demonstrates our unwavering commitment to prosecuting companies that violate the nation’s antitrust laws, especially when it involves something as central to everyday life as the food we eat,”...
    Luis Treviño Chapa Source: Courtesy A few days ago, Mexico was shocked by a news item that generated all kinds of reactions and comments on social networks. No, it has nothing to do with economic crisis, not unemployment, not the stock market, not vaccines for the coronavirus. It has to do with … cartoons. It turns out that recently, the Senate of the Republic unanimously approved an initiative to modify the General Health Law in food labeling that prohibits putting “persuasive elements”. That is, unhealthy foods for children may not have characters, pets or cartoons in their packaging. This limitation will destroy a long list of celebrities such as: Marinela’s Gansito, Toño’s Tiger from Zucaritas, Chester Cheetos, Melvin from Choco Krispis, Pancho Pantera from Choco Milk and the clown from Paleta Payaso, among others (Dr. Simi, you save yourself and go to the next round). There are many characters who will say goodbye and if I omitted the Bimbo Bear from the list, it was because he refuses to disappear. This week it became a trend in...

    Google has provided a bug fix to its iOS YouTube app, the first update to a major Google iOS app since December, 9to5Google reports. Although there’s been speculation that the reason for the lack of updates to iOS versions of Gmail, Docs, Search, and Photos is an attempt to avoid Apple’s new privacy labels, Google has explicitly denied that was the case. The company said in a January 12th blog post it would add the labels to its apps when updates were available: As Google’s iOS apps are updated with new features or to fix bugs, you’ll see updates to our app page listings that include the new App Privacy Details. These labels represent the maximum categories of data that could be collected—meaning if you use every available feature and service in the app. The data you provide to Google products delivers helpful services to you, and you can always control your privacy settings by visiting your Google Account or going directly to the Google products you use on iOS.

    Like Halsey, I prefer makeup that's bold and unconventional. John Shearer/Getty Images and Amanda Krause/Insider I tried one of every product from Halsey's new beauty brand, About-Face. I highly recommend the brand's lipstick, eye-shadow sticks, and liquid eye paints. I wasn't as impressed by the brand's primer, blending sponge, and overall price range. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Halsey and I have a few things in common: We're both proud New Jersey natives, we grew up listening to the same music, and we both spent a lot of time on Tumblr in our teenage years. But most importantly to me, Halsey and I both use makeup as a form of self-expression. She's rocked everything from bleached eyebrows to sparkling eye shadow over the years, and I love how unabashedly bold she is in her looks — which she often creates herself.  I was curious to see how her beauty skills would translate to a line of her own, so I ordered one of each product from her About-Face line and put them to the test. Here's...

    Tatcha When you buy through our links, we may earn money from our affiliate partners. Learn more. Tatcha is a skincare brand that takes inspiration from centuries-old skincare routines of Japanese geisha.  The founder, Victoria Tsai, still works with geisha and Japanese scientists to formulate the products, which prioritize calming ingredients like camellia oil, green tea, and silk extracts. As a beauty editor, it's one of my absolute favorite brands. You can find it at Sephora, or Tatcha. Many of the product formulas are offered in variations for specific skin types, which allows you to customize your routine based on very specific concerns (for me, it's dryness).  There's something particularly gentle about practicing a morning or evening skincare routine with multiple steps. The careful massaging of cleansers and serums, the soft swipe of toners and essences on cotton pads, the precise application of hydrating creams — it's an act of meditation and intentionality. My routine has ebbed and flowed over the years, rarely staying the same from week to week — the consequence of a job that...
    Colorado marijuana sales have topped $1 billion since the pandemic began, according to figures released this week by the state Department of Revenue. Legal marijuana sales topped $200 million in August for the second month in a row. Counting back to March of this year, when Colorado and the rest of the nation began shutting down over the pandemic, dispensaries have sold over $1.1 billion in marijuana products — and that's not counting sales in September and October, or back in February and January. And that's with prices at a three-year high. Readers had plenty to say about this record-breaking run in their Facebook comments on our story. Says Felicia: Good to see unemployment checks so well used. Adds Ed: No money to pay rent but plenty to purchase pot. Counters Josh: Is this the '50s? The MJ industry supports thousands of jobs and adds millions in tax revenue. And landlords charging 1,200 bucks a month for a studio apartment that adds nothing to the local economy want sympathy for evicting people unemployed...
    "Politicians say more taxes will solve everything." — Lyric from the prophetic 1970 hit "Ball of Confusion" by the Temptations. Thanks to the virus lockdown's economic collapse, state and local governments everywhere are experiencing a perfect storm of plunging tax revenues and increasing expenditures. Closed businesses don't generate much in sales taxes, permitting, licensing and many other fees. Same with torched and looted stores. Laid off or terminated workers have zero state income tax withheld. Many of those businesses deemed "essential" have seen their sales drop, along with the taxes collected by those businesses, with one notable exception: the sin taxes. The sin and many other types of taxes are used for social engineering, rewarding some economic behaviors while penalizing others. Governments have learned that sin tax increases usually face less opposition than boosting other types of taxes. In 1773, Bostonians dumped 342 chests of tea into the harbor in response to King George's onerous taxes, eventually leading to the War of Independence. Fast forward to 2020, where we face a bewildering web of taxes and fees — just ask...
    Social Securitys 2021 COLA: How Much of a Raise Should Beneficiaries Expect? Talus Expedition Gear: An RV in a Box Concealer Is One of the Most Touched-Up Beauty Products—Here Are 8 That Stay Put There are some makeup products that you apply in the morning never to think of again, and then there are some that you apply in the morning... and then have to reapply throughout the day after it fades or melts off with wear. One of the most touched-up makeup products out there? Concealer. That's why it's time to shop for long-lasting concealers. (And we mean truly long-lasting.) According to makeup artist and makeup educator DeShawn Hatcher, concealers tend to fade for three reasons. One culprit is your moisturizer application. "If you haven't allowed the eye moisturizer you applied previously to absorb, always be sure to blot off any excess before applying concealer," she says. Another culprit? If you applied an extra amount of moisturizer, it's harder for it to set properly before makeup application. "Use three or four dots and blend with the ring...
    Sandra Martinez, 45, a housekeeper, used to work three days a week before the pandemic struck. Now she does the same work for one day’s pay, because her employer thought one housekeeping appointment was less risky than three. She used to take three buses to work, an epic commute that made her workdays 15 hours long. Now she pays out of pocket for Uber, exhausting her savings, because her family heard that taking the bus was unsafe. As we all try to take fewer risks, housekeepers, caregivers and child-care providers like Martinez have paid the price. Nearly three-quarters of domestic workers reported losing their jobs in an April survey. Many domestic workers who can afford only to take the bus to their jobs have lost them. A disproportionate number of domestic workers and their family members have contracted COVID-19 and died. In California, an estimated 350,000 domestic workers employed by more than 2 million families have no workplace safety protections during a time when their work couldn’t be more dangerous or essential. Gov. Gavin Newsom is considering a bill that...

    This is the summer of shorts. Because I don’t have to go into the office at the moment, and because it also happens to be very hot, shorts are my go to. I have been wearing plenty of running shorts (I find them to be the comfiest), but after wearing them for months now, I kind of feel like I should broaden my horizons.

By injection, inside, or almost a cleaning, ’cause you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that. You’re going to have to use medical doctors, right? But...
