    A TIKTOKER who worked at Sephora has disclosed why what you know about the store's return policy could save you big money on items you don't want.

She specified the item you want to return cannot be more than 33% used, however. The TikToker with nearly 285,000 followers explained the useful tip that Sephora's return policy is 30 days with a receipt for a full refund. However, she said, if you don't have the receipt, as long as there's a way to look up the purchase, such as with your Beauty Insider rewards account, you will be eligible to get a refund.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans school board has unanimously reversed a little known but century-old ban on jazz in schools in a city which played a huge role in developing jazz and where it is still played nightly at various venues. “I’m very glad that we can rescind this policy. I want to acknowledge it. It was rooted in racism,” Orleans Parish School Board President Olin Parker said during the meeting Thursday night. “And I also want to acknowledge the tremendous contributions of our students and especially of our band directors, whose legacy continues from 1922 through present day.” The board voted to encourage jazz music and dance in schools, a news release said. Ken Ducote, executive director of the Greater New Orleans Collaborative of Charter Schools, brought the policy to the board’s attention after reading about it in Al Kennedy’s book “Chord Changes on the Chalkboard: How Public School Teachers Shaped Jazz and the Music of New Orleans.” “We’re glad that the policy was ignored by our schools, because our schools played a major role in the...
    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The school board in the city where jazz took root is preparing to undo a little-known 1922 rule that bans jazz music and dancing in public schools. Officials tell The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate that the policy has racist origins, as its creators sought at the time to distance New Orleans schoolchildren from the African Americans who created the genre. The rule has been ignored for decades. Jazz is taught in some schools and marching bands accompanied by dance teams are a fixture of Carnival season parades. “In this instance and in this instance only we’re glad that the policy was ignored by our students, by our schools,” board member Katherine Baudouin said. “Our schools played a major role in the development of jazz.” The board discussed the policy at a committee meeting on Tuesday and planned to vote Thursday on reversing it. The policy came to the board’s attention after Ken Ducote, executive director of the Greater New Orleans Collaborative of Charter Schools, read a book, “Chord Changes on the Chalkboard: How...
    Eric Baradat/Getty Images The New York Times took a derisive tone toward President Joe Biden with a Friday story critical of his allegedly slow, “Socratic” leadership style of leadership. “Quick decision-making is not Mr. Biden’s style,” Times reporters Michael Shear, Katie Rogers, and Annie Karni wrote in the piece. “His reputation as a plain-speaking politician hides a more complicated truth. Before making up his mind, the president demands hours of detail-laden debate from scores of policy experts, taking everyone around him on what some in the West Wing refer to as his Socratic ‘journey’ before arriving at a conclusion.” Highlighting his age, the reporting trio added, “On policy issues, Mr. Biden, 78, takes days or weeks to make up his mind as he examines and second-guesses himself and others. It is a method of governing that can feel at odds with the urgency of a country still reeling from a pandemic and an economy struggling to recover.” They also claimed Biden’s contemplative demeanor led to his advisers being “peppered with sometimes obscure questions,” with the advisers allegedly grousing that “avoiding Biden’s...
    GAME CHANGERS: This is the second in a series of stories chronicling the Bay Area’s rich history of sports figures fighting for equality. Click here for a look at what Tommie Smith and John Carlos — the enduring emblems of athlete protest — think about today’s movement. Curt Flood, a complicated man with a convoluted legacy, spent the final years of his life consumed with fear he’d somehow be forgotten. He wondered if sabotaging his own baseball career to help other players win their freedom — in what he really saw as a civil rights issue — would just be a footnote in sports history. Related Articles Today’s sports activists follow lead of Smith, Carlos — then push further It’s been nearly 25 years since Flood, the kid who grew from an Oakland playground legend into a three-time All-Star, two-time world champion and once-in-a-lifetime baseball pioneer, died in a Los Angeles hospital. He was 59 when he passed away on Jan. 20, 1997 due to complications from throat cancer. Sadly, just as Flood feared, he may be a forgotten...
    The NBA banned players from bringing “casual acquaintances” inside its bubble in Orlando, Fla., as part of a new guest policy, according to a league memo that surfaced Wednesday. The league will allow players on teams that advance to the second round of the playoffs later this month to bring a limited number of guests into the bubble at Walt Disney World resort. Aside from family members, acceptable guests include “longtime close personal friends with whom a player has an established, preexisting and known personal relationship,” according to a memo to players. MASTERS TOURNAMENT TO BE HELD WITHOUT FANS IN NOVEMBER The memo also detailed which potential guests would not be allowed in the bubble. Players cannot invite casual acquaintances, such as people that are “known by the player only through social media or an intermediary.” Other banned guests include personal trainers, chefs, hair stylists, business partners and agents, the memo said.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As then-Vice President Joe Biden left the West Wing each evening to head home, he often popped his head into national security adviser Susan Rice’s nearby suite of offices to check in — sometimes on pressing foreign policy matters, sometimes just to shoot the breeze. “My favorite unannounced visitor was Vice President Joe Biden,” Rice wrote in her book “Tough Love.” In those casual visits, as well as in daily national security briefings, Biden and Rice forged an easy working relationship, according to people who worked alongside them during their eight years in the Obama administration. It’s that personal relationship, and Biden’s firsthand knowledge of how Rice would operate in close proximity to a president, that are now seen as among her strongest attributes as Biden considers her to be his running mate on the Democratic presidential ticket. Rice was initially seen as a surprise candidate for the role. The 55-year-old has a long pedigree in foreign policy, but has never held elected office. She is close to former President Barack Obama and his network of policy...
