The Marie Claire Guide On How To Recycle Beauty Products

As it’s World Oceans Day tomorrow, we want to encourage everyone to do their bit for our seas, not to mention the rest of the planet. Ever since that final episode of Blue Planet II aired in December 2017, we have known just how horrific the extent of the devastation that plastics has on planet, especially our oceans. According to Global Citizen, by late 2018 88% of those who had seen it had changed their relationship with plastic completely. They went on to call the episode, ‘a key moment sparking the war on plastics.’ We have certainly noticed more reusable water bottles on our commute and in the office, some people have gone a week completely plastic-free and huge brands like Waitrose are doing their bit to reduce their plastic waste. So, does this mean that we are nailing our recycling routines? Apparently not, according to research carried out by Garnier 56% of Brits don’t recycle their bathroom products. It’s thought to be partly down to us being used to having two bins in our kitchen, that it’s almost second nature to separate our recyclable goods. But the other issue is the complexity of bathroom products; a hand soap bottle and an eyeshadow palette are slightly more co...

Le Pur et Simple split-shank French pavé 18K white gold setting with 5-carat cushion cut white diamond center (I, VS1) and white diamonds (0.51 TCW) MARC MAJORS: Incredible ring! I really like how the split shank tapers in towards the top, allowing the center diamond to really be the star of the show. The mounting is a nice accent but not a distraction, and the cushion cut is the perfect shape for this ring. LINDY KAVANAUGH: A tapered band with a split shank enhances this stunning center stone and gives it a feminine feel. An interesting twist on a classic engagement ring. LAUREN LEVISON: Love how the two bands meet to unify under the marriage stone.

Kentucky Bourbon Affair fantasy camp in Louisville also featured lots of Kentucky Proud products

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Kentucky Bourbon fans from around the world got a taste of the state’s top agricultural offerings from local chefs at last week’s Kentucky Bourbon Affair, thanks to a partnership with Kentucky Proud, which markets farm-fresh fare and ingredients from across the Bluegrass. “Kentucky’s signature Bourbon industry relies heavily on Kentucky farm ingredients for our products and events during this magical week full of out-of-state guests,” said Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association that operates the elite event. “We’re honored to feature Kentucky Proud products again this year and showcase our farm families.” Kentucky Proud is the official state marketing program administered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture for products raised, grown, manufactured or processed in Kentucky.

Think of bicycles, and your first mental image could be something pretty fancy. Depending on which

Think of bicycles, and your first mental image could be something pretty fancy. Depending on which side of the sport you favor, you could end up thinking of a road bike or an MTB, maybe DH, CX, BMX, TT, tandem or recumbent. But for people in most parts of the World such as Asia, Africa and South America, the bicycle conjures up a very different image – that of the humble roadster. And this simple, hardy machine has spawned innumerable hacks to extend its usefulness and functionality by enterprising people with limited means. For them, it is not as much a means of transport, as a means for livelihood and survival. Mumbai’s population is estimated to be about 20 million with a density second only to Dhaka, Bangladesh. For scale, that’s about a third of the whole of UK, and half of all of Canada. Just delivering food to all these people is no mean feat. Enter the Dabbawallah, a uniquely Mumbai profession whose existence helps most Mumbaikars eat on time. Late in the mornings, a Dabbawallah goes about house to house collecting the tiffin boxes (“dabbas”, essentially lunch boxes) on his roadster bicycle, and then delivers it at the nearest train station. The dabbas are then sorted, ...

41 Random Things Under $15 On Amazon That Are Going Viral

The more you spend on something, the more effective it is, right? Nope — not always. Take these random things under $15 on Amazon that are going viral as the perfect example: they cost about as much as two really fancy cups of coffee (or one really fancy cocktail), but they’ll prove to be so useful, you’ll wonder why they don’t cost three times as much. You might be shocked to learn that innovative gadgets and tools that are this practical and convenient come with a totally reasonable price tag. But this isn’t too good to be true: judging by all of the amazing reviews and ratings these items enjoy, it’s a safe bet that they’re the real deal.

Never wash a pan after making breakfast again — becau...

At the end of 2018 the United States Eventing Association (USEA) launched a new website and

At the end of 2018 the United States Eventing Association (USEA) launched a new website and with this update came a new process for the USEA’s online competition calendar. This change was not a result of the new website, but because the USEA Omnibus is no longer being offered in a printed version. For years the USEA printed three editions of the Omnibus annually (winter/spring, summer, and fall). The print deadline was the due date given to the organizers specifically for the printed copy, but also included the online listings with the events being released all on one date to correspond with the three editions (three times a year). In the past, an event running in May would have had to complete their listing by the previous October, forcing the organizer to list incomplete and potentially inaccurate information. Now, organizers are required to submit their prize lists 30 days prior to the opening date of the event for publication on the USEA’s online competition calendar. This new policy allows organizers to have more complete and accurate information without having to submit changes. Competitions that wish to submit their prize list earlier are encouraged to do so. If you...

Providence Animal Control says you should always make a cut in anything circular before throwing it

Providence Animal Control says you should always make a cut in anything circular before throwing it out According to WPRI, a stray feline in Providence, Rhode Island, found their way into some garbage that included the lid to a plastic container. The black-and-white cat managed to get his stuck in a hole in the lid. Providence Animal Control learned about the cat’s predicament and reached out to trapper Nathan Campagna for helped rounding up the pet, so the animal could receive treatment. “Wth my custom trap and 3.5 hours of patience, we got him. Tupper got his name because he had a lid stuck around his neck for who knows how long. He also had an extremely damaged and infected eye,” Campagna wrote on Facebook about the rescue. After Tupper was trapped and named, he was brought to a local animal hospital where the lid was removed. Tupper also received emergency care for his other health issues, including his wounded eye. Campagna believes the feline will ultimately lose the injured eye. The good news is that Tupper is now off the street and is expected to make a full recovery. Once the cat is fully healed, Animal Control plans to put Tupper up for adoption, especially since he i...

A look at hyper-convergence vs. traditional server deployments

Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) uses clustered local storage to eliminate storage area networks, but its true value comes from the way it simplifies operational tasks. HCI eliminates disk groups, RAID configurations and Fibre Channel networks, which makes it easier to go from hardware on the loading dock to a virtualization platform. IT administrators can achieve some of the benefits of HCI using a traditional hardware setup with wizards and automation. The most common fallacy I see in IT marketing is comparing a new product with the technology it replaces. For example, buyers shouldn’t assume that an HCI cluster with 16 nodes in 8U of rack space completely replaces a legacy server and hard disk implementation that takes up three full racks. A non-HCI setup might use a 2U all-flash array (AFA) and a small blade enclosure to replace the same three racks. The real performance comparison is not three racks to 8U, but rather an 8U HCI to 12U AFA and blades. Unequal comparisons also occur when companies look at the challenges of building a Fibre Channel network, a hard disk-based array and Gigabit Ethernet versus HCI with 10 GB Ethernet; this comparison is neither fair nor...
