    A former Little Rock School District (LRSD) administrator who made six figures a year pleaded guilty to mail fraud on Wednesday after spending more than $230,000 of stolen school funds on personal items - including knitting materials, makeup and various home goods - over the course of eight years.  Karen James, 48, previously worked as LRSD's director of Early Childhood Programs from 2010 until her secret spending caught up with her in 2018.  An investigation revealed she had used two business credit cards she was issued by the district to rack up a combined $230,635.86 in fraudulent purchases, according to a press release.   She spent over $4,000 at the online furniture and home goods site Wayfair on bath rugs, a recliner and other items; made 83 unauthorized purchases through PayPal totaling more than $27,000 and purchased 2,462 items on Amazon, spending a whopping $199,200 on items such as clothing, makeup, housewares, knitting materials, pet products and gift cards, authorities said. James was reportedly using the credit cards to shop online for personal items from August 2014 until August 2018, when the...
    In this article EPCVIDEO4:3904:39The new inflation people are seeing is primarily around materials, says Edgewell Personal CEOClosing BellEdgewell Personal Care CEO Rod Little told CNBC on Tuesday he expects demand for the company's care and grooming products to increase in the coming months, as the intensity of the coronavirus pandemic wanes. "I would guess by the time we get to late spring, summer in our categories, you're going to see more people back in the office. That's more shaving, more daily grooming routines," Little said in an interview on "Closing Bell." "And you're going to see a lot of people getting out, going on vacation with leisure travel, which will drive sunscreen," Little added. "We're optimistic for the balance of the year." Edgewell — the parent firm of Banana Boat, Playtex and Schick — also should have an easier time meeting that demand, Little said. Late last year, the company's production was limited as workers called out sick during the height of the Covid omicron wave. At the peak in December, Little estimated about 10% of Edgewell's manufacturing workforce was...
    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more A study released in August revealed that air pollution may not always come from the places that we think it comes from. A test was conducted to see how much air pollution was in New York City. Scientists expected to see high reads from the bumper to bumper traffic, but instead picked up a variety of air pollutants from paint, deodorant, personal care products, and perfumes. All of these products create volatile organic compounds, which turn into serious and dangerous air pollution. Many of these products are petroleum-based and evaporate from the skin into the air around us. This information could be a breakthrough in how we tackle air pollution, now that we know where so many of the most common pollutants are coming from. Scientists advised people to try to avoid petroleum-based products and instead use water-based ones. They also say to look for products without a scent. As a rule of thumb, if you can smell a fragrance, the product can cause pollutants to go into the air....
    Indiana University students urge Supreme Court to block vaccine mandate Kanye Wests Donda performance, Dixie Fire destroys town of Greenville: 5 Things podcast © Provided by Daily Messenger John Ninfo We have all seen a number of small businesses close during the pandemic, and “For Rent” signs in their former spaces. We also know that there are many others that are still struggling and are very concerned about possible new mask mandates and even shutdowns given the Delta and, no doubt, future variants, as many Americans remain unvaccinated, and it is still unclear for how long the existing vaccinations will be highly effective. We wonder what the next businesses will be that go into those empty retail spaces. We feel that there are opportunities for new businesses with the right products or services. You, or someone in your family, may be thinking about starting a business. That said, and given all of my experiences with small and large businesses as a commercial attorney and Bankruptcy Judge, I found very interesting a recent Wall Street Journal piece by Molly Baker,...

    In a world where profit and consumption come leaps and bounds before sustainability and moderation, it shouldn’t be surprising that the skincare industry is environmentally destructive, particularly to aquatic life. What you put on your skin matters just as much as what you eat. It affects the ecosystem and your personal well-being.  Toxic Ingredients  These are just a few of many ingredients to avoid. We read the backs of food packages, so why not get in the habit of checking what’s in our skincare. Developing a basic knowledge of popular skincare ingredients will help you make more eco-friendly choices and keep your skin looking happy!  Oxybenzone and Oxtinoxate These are the most common sunscreen ingredients. In 2018, they became restricted in Hawaii because they cause damage to the coral reefs. The two popular ingredients bleach and stunt the growth of the delicate coral reefs.  Damage to the coral reefs is incredibly serious since they are some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. About a quarter of oceanic fish depends on healthy coral reefs for shelter, food,...
    Okay, admit it … you have no clue what happens when you pour things down the drain. The sink is like a magic receptacle that takes all the half used cologne you bought in high school, leftover toner you never use and whole myriad of other mystery liquids and simply washes them away. We will admit we’ve definitely partaken in unsupervised sink-dumping. After all, what are you supposed to do with all these unwanted items? But just because you can turn on the faucet and wash all remnants of said unwanted substance down the drain, doesn’t mean that it goes away. It really just goes somewhere else. And sadly, as with a lot of the waste we create, it’s likely that it will end up in streams, rivers, groundwater, and eventually, the ocean. While your half of a bottle of old anti-frizz hairspray might not be the cause of major concern, when you consider the fact that millions of people are also pouring their respective leftover liquids down the drain, then we start to see a problem. Emerging Environmental...
    Is this the new normal? Unilever is stripping the word "normal" from the marketing language for its beauty and personal care products, in a bid to makeover the brand as more inclusive. The consumer goods conglomerate, whose portfolio includes Dove, Axe, TRESemme and Vaseline, announced the news Tuesday, unveiling plans for a new "Positive Beauty" vision for its brand advertising. Within a year, the word "normal" will be pulled from packaging for at least 200 products, the Associated Press reports.

    Keeping the world beautiful is just as important as your personal care routine, but sometimes these goals seem to be at odds. However, they don’t have to be. You can keep your body looking as beautiful as you want while also keeping the health of the environment in mind. All you need to do is make some simple swaps.  1. Swap Microbeads for Natural Exfoliators Microbeads often made with microplastics, have been a known pollution problem since 2012. And in 2015, then-President Obama signed the Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015 banning the use of plastic microbeads in personal care products (like cosmetics) in the United States but not every country has come to this same realization. Furthermore, many people still look for the exfoliating properties of microbeads in their skincare routine. If you are looking for a quality exfoliator for your skin, you should try swapping plastic microbeads for either an enzyme exfoliator or an exfoliation product that uses a natural ingredient to scrub the skin.  Enzyme exfoliators can be good for the skin because they are generally...
    Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) reported that Willow, Jaden, Jada, and Will Smith are launching a line of personal care products called Hey Humans. The best part? The brand is 99-percent plastic-free, according to brand partner Maesa. Source: All Money MAFIA/YouTube Jada Pinkett Smith, Hey Humans’ creative director, and co-founder told WWD the brand aligns nicely with her love for products and the family’s sustainable focus.

He later founded 501CThree, a nonprofit that helps provide clean water to people in Flint, Michigan and other cities in the US. Willow Smith was also involved in the Global Climate Strike last year. “For me, personal care is a practice that represents self-love,” Pinkett Smith said. “The products I use, like many other consumers, are an expression of my personal-care routine. My kids have continuously educated me around effective sustainable solutions and the ways in which we as a family can participate in that process.” Hey Humans will provide deodorant, body wash, body lotion, and toothpaste.

    Shiseido skincare and color products.M. Von Holden | FilmMagic | Getty Images Japanese beauty company Shiseido said it plans to sell its personal-care business, which includes its lower-priced hair care and skincare products, to private equity firm CVC Capital Partners for 160 billion yen (US$1.5 billion).

    A side-by-side comparison of Google search results in the last decade shows just how much the online search engine has changed for the average person as the lucrative tech giant became an advertising machine selling ads tied to searches.  Google is currently in the crosshairs of a US Justice Department lawsuit that accuses the tech giant of abusing its dominance in online search and advertising. While Google has long defended itself against charges of monopoly by arguing its searches are free for users, the lawsuit claims that both advertisers and regular people are harmed by its dominance as the most used website. So just how does Google's monopoly harm the average person? Critics and lawmakers have argued that the answer, at least in part, lies in Google's own search results.  In some of today's searches, people often need to scroll through half a dozen links - not including ones marked ads or affiliated with Google-own Maps - before they can find an unpaid result for an outside website. Sponsored content, while more aesthetically pleasing in 2020, can also often be harder to distinguish.   ...

    BOSTON (CBS) – More than 20,000 counterfeit N95 respirator masks were seized by Customs and Border Protection officers in Boston this week. The 43 boxes arriving from Hong Kong were found by CBP officers Wednesday at the International Cargo Port. The boxes contained 20,400 masks and had an appraised value of $163,200. CBP said certain organizations are attempting to exploit the limited supply of personal protective equipment and other medical goods needed to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. “Counterfeit personal protective equipment puts frontline workers and the general public’s health at risk,” said Michael Denning, Director of Field Operations for the Boston Field Office. Other counterfeit products being smuggled into the country include unapproved Covid-19 test kits and substandard hygiene products.

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Consumer products giant Unilever, whose brands include Ben & Jerry's ice creams, Lipton tea and Dove soaps, said Thursday that second-quarter sales were only slightly lower than the same period a year ago — beating expectations of a drop of around 4% — despite the lockdown measures triggered by the global fight against the coronavirus. CEO Alan Jope said the Anglo-Dutch company had “unlocked new levels of agility in responding to unprecedented fluctuations in demand.” The company's shares jumped more than 8% on the news. Unilever's results provide a snapshot of how consumer behavior has been altered by the global pandemic - shoppers bought more food and drink to consume at home rather than visiting restaurants and cleaned their homes and hands more while spending less on personal grooming. “Lockdowns in our markets and reduced personal care occasions amidst restricted living, led to lower demand for skin care, deodorants and hair care, which each saw volume and price decline,” the company said.

    Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson talks a big game when it comes to protecting American jobs. Hide But it appears that he isn’t quite practicing what he’s preaching. Hide Hide “Thanks to outsourcing, this country no longer has the same reserve of stable, middle-class manufacturing jobs we did even 30 years ago,” Carlson stated to his audience back in February. In March, Carlson asked Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) how rich he’d become from endorsing the idea of sending “working-class jobs” overseas. “How much have you, Mitt Romney, personally made—how rich have you become by sending jobs overseas—working-class jobs—by charging obscene interest rates and by otherwise harming poor and Black communities economically?” Carlson riffed. Hide If such quotes from Carlson railing against outsourcing of jobs aren’t enough, his nightly Fox News program has spent loads of time “investigating” many companies that outsource jobs from the United States. But Carlson himself appears to be outsourcing the manufacturing of his very own apparel line to other nations’ workforces. Take, for example, the sweatshirt on...
