    IN OUR busy lives, aftercare – whether it’s for a spray tan, new piercing or bikini wax – is often the first thing to drop off the to-do list. But you may want to make it a priority ahead of your next lash extension appointment. 3Ipek says to stop picking at your lashesCredit: @ipsbeauty/Tiktok 3The eyelash technician shows the aftermath of not looking after your lashesCredit: @ipsbeauty/Tiktok Not only will your technician immediately spot that you’ve been failing to look after them properly, but you’re also putting your eye health at risk. Ipek Ozcan the North London-based lash technician with more than half a million followers on TikTok, has built a reputation for fixing some of the most stomach-churning lash extension issues. SCABBY LASH LINES “The worst thing I have witnessed is probably the really bad, unclean lashes,” says the lash queen, who runs Ips Beauty in Islington. “It’s advised you clean your lashes every single day, but if you wear heavy make-up then you really should be cleaning them every single day. “One client just sort of fell off...
    For decades, Miami's South Beach has been a raucous party central for millions of vacationers attracted by its tantalizing all-night bars and stunning beaches. But the once never-ending party could soon be over following this week's brutal gun slaying of an innocent young father protecting his family as they ate in a restaurant during the early evening. The horror follows waves of recent shootings, stabbings, fights and street crimes that have escalated this year in the area's teeming entertainment district – despite a massive police crackdown. The pressure has now suddenly ramped up to radically change the area by ditching the high-octane nightlife that has made it globally famous – but has also attracted visitors with guns, knives and drugs. And the push is being led by Miami Beach mayor Dan Gelber. Sickened by Tuesday's murder of Dustin Wakefield 21, he told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview: 'The area has become too turbulent and too disorderly. 'In fact, sometimes it is just ungovernable. It should be obvious to us that we've got to quit. We need to get rid of...
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is coming under increasing pressure to release the data that prompted it to reverse its mask guidelines on Tuesday, as cities and states say they need to see the evidence before revising their own policies.  Federal officials say unpublished data showed vaccinated people infected with COVID-19 may be able to transmit the virus, leading them to recommend that everyone should wear a mask indoors in areas of high transmission.  Republicans have poured doubt on the new findings and even Democratic-led cities say they won't make changes without understanding the facts.  Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said the change was confusing. 'I haven't seen the data - they're not really forthcoming on a lot of data that they're using to make this change in the guidance,' she said at a press conference.  'And I really haven't seen any data that would support that states that don't issue a mask mandate versus states that do issue a mask mandate - that the statistics are that much different.' 'This is not a decision CDC has made lightly...this...
    Anusandhan (Investigation) is a Bengali movie that’s all set to release soon. The trailer was unveiled today and you just can’t miss the uncanny similarities between the movie and Amitabh Bachchan-Emraan Hashmi starrer Chehre.

    Hollywood actor and left-wing activist Mark Ruffalo, worth an estimated $35 million, says Americans “must come to balance and honor” a “dying” Mother Earth and said we must “turn the page on the cruel past” of America while accepting the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards. Ruffalo, while accepting his award, said the mother Earth is “dying” and that Americans must “come to balance with her and honor her” so she can “heal too.” “At 54 years, it’s my humble belief that what would give us all this sadness and loss that we’ve all lived through, meaning is our common humanity,” the Avengers star said.

    While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) reacted to calls for a special counsel to investigate President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter by stating that it is time to “turn the page and move on.” Because “There are hundreds of millions of people in this country that need to be vaccinated.” Carper said, “We need to turn the page and move on.

    President Trump on Saturday claimed that the United States was ‘rounding the turn’ and beating back the COVID-19 pandemic because the virus was only affecting young people with ‘beautiful immune systems’ like his son, Barron. The president’s comments to his supporters in Circleville on Saturday comes amid a recent scientific research paper showing a steep decline in the number of COVID-19 deaths among those hospitalized with the disease. But the US on Friday alone reported a record of more than 83,000 infections. Trump accused Democrats and the news media of fear-mongering about the pandemic.  ‘It’s always cases, cases, cases. They don’t talk about deaths,’ Trump told a crowd of several thousand at an outdoor rally in Circleville Ohio, where few wore masks even as they stood and sat shoulder to shoulder. ‘They’re trying to scare everybody,’ he said.
    The Democratic presidential ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is releasing a new ad in battleground states that takes on police brutality, as part of what the campaign says is part of a media blitz that will spend $45 million this week alone. In the ad, entitled “We’re Listening,” Biden and Harris talk about the toll of police violence on Black Americans. “Why, in this nation, do Black Americans wake up knowing that they can lose their life in the course of just living it?” former Vice President Biden says at the beginning of the spot. “Part of the point of freedom is to be free from brutality, from injustice, from racism in all of its manifestations,” Senator Harris says. “We have to let people know that we not only understand their struggle, but we understand the fact that they deserve to be treated with dignity. We’ve got to know we’re listening,” Biden says, as the ad goes on to list some of the ticket’s plans for reform. According to a campaign press release, the spot “begins airing...
    Campaigners mourned 'the end of Hong Kong as we know it' today after China passed a sweeping new national security law which critics say will smother the city's freedoms.  The legislation was unanimously approved by China's rubber-stamp parliament, little more than six weeks after it was first unveiled.   'It marks the end of Hong Kong that the world knew before,' said democracy campaigner Joshua Wong, adding that 'sweeping powers and ill-defined law' would make Hong Kong into a 'secret police state'.  China promised the city 50 years of freedoms when it was handed over from British rule in 1997, but the UK, US, European Union and UN have all voiced fears that the new law will be used to stifle criticism of Beijing.    Pro-Beijing supporters wave Chinese and Hong Kong flags and drink champagne today as they celebrate a controversial new security law  The law bypassed Hong Kong's fractious legislature and the wording was kept secret from the city's 7.5 million inhabitants. The opacity continued even after the law was passed, with silence from Beijing. Instead the news filtered...
    Behind the anger in the streets at police abuse is the awareness that Black, brown, and Native people are disproportionately disenfranchised, suffering, and dying. It’s not just police brutality or the inequality of the COVID-19 pandemic, deadly as those are. It’s also the ongoing crisis of socio-economic marginalization faced by people of color in this country, most dramatically illustrated by our racial wealth divide. Median white families own literally dozens of times more wealth than Black and Latino families, who have far fewer resources to endure disasters like the pandemic and recession. While we are several years away from understanding the pandemic’s impact on racial asset holdings, the most recent pre-pandemic data is alarming. Between 1983 and 2016, the median Black family saw their wealth drop by more than half after adjusting for inflation, down to a minuscule 2% of white wealth. Latinos saw only a marginal increase, to just 4% of median white wealth. White households, by contrast, increased their wealth by a third.

    Director Liz Garbus said in an interview with Insider that she thinks technology and a need for control might be why we're so obsessed with true crime stories.  In an interview for her new documentary "I'll Be Gone in the Dark," Garbus said that true crime isn't a new genre, but technology could have changed the way we think about it.  "We have our phones constantly wired into our brains. And that doesn't leave a lot of time for self-reflection," Garbus said.  The director also suggested that for women, and people who are victims of crimes, watching true crime shows can be a way to regain control in their daily lives.  "It's a way to sort of look at something and feel like you can kind of control it — you can close the book, you can turn off the TV, when in real life, you don't have that power," she said.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Director Liz Garbus told Insider that she thinks technology, as well as a growing need for control, might explain our...
    Facebook and Instagram will allow users in the United States to turn off political ads paid for by a politician or political entity, like a political action committee (PAC), as reported by CNN. The ads may be about political and social issues and display a “paid for by” tag. The onus is then on the users to block ads they don’t want to see. The bigger matter, of course, is that Facebook continues to stick by its allowance of misinformation from politicians in paid ads on its platform. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the news in an op-ed published on Tuesday. "For those of you who've already made up your minds and just want the election to be over, we hear you,” he wrote. But when it comes to transparency, accountability, and making sure users get a fair shot at receiving accurate information, being heard remains to be seen. Twitter recently began using labels to fact-check tweets. Of course some of Trump’s tweets were flagged, including as “glorifying violence.” And on that subject, Zuckerberg argued that Facebook shouldn’t be the “arbiter of truth” for...
    (CNN)Just before the Covid-19 quarantine, I joined my fellow hosts on Turner Classic Movies for an "Old Hollywood" fashion photo shoot for Emmy Magazine. But when the spread came out, I could not bring myself to post the photos to my social media. As an African American cinema and media studies professor, how could I promote the glamour of classic Hollywood when our current media landscape was exploding with scenes of racial crisis? Jacqueline Stewart Day after day, I scrolled through posts decrying the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. For weeks, video after video showed the escalating protests against police brutality and the brutal treatment of protesters by police. It seemed inappropriate to share shots glorifying Hollywood's golden age in this moment of mourning and mobilization. Moreover, the classic films we showcase on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) have played a major role in perpetuating the racist beliefs that devalue Black lives and normalize the use of excessive force against Black people.No wonder that many viewers were outraged when HBO Max rolled out with the Civil...
    Joe Biden provided a video that was played at George Floyd’s funeral urging people not to turn away from this defining moment in the history of the nation as it reckons with racism and police brutality. READ MORE: Keisha Lance Bottoms could be in consideration for VP pick The Democratic nominee offered his message Tuesday through a video that was played Fountain of Praise church in Houston, Texas. Biden stayed behind at his home in Delaware as he did not want his Secret Service detail to be a distraction at the service.

We must not turn away,” Biden said. “We cannot leave this moment thinking we can once again turn away from racism that stings at our very soul from systemic abuse that still plagues American life.” On Monday, Biden met privately with Floyd’s family. He shared in their pain and expressed that he too,  has experienced grief over the loss of loved ones. Biden said that grieving in front of the...
    On Friday, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees issued an Instagram statement to President Donald Trump. “To Donald Trump,” the text-image reads: Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities. We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform. We are at a critical juncture in our nation’s history! If not now, then when? We as a white community need to listen and learn from the pain and suffering of our black communities. We must acknowledge the problems, identify the solutions, and then put this into action. The black community cannot do it alone. This will require all of us.  View...
    Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick told "Fox News @ Night" Wednesday that former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis' criticism of President Trump was an unneeded "distraction" and that America must "turn to God" if it wants to overcome racism. "I think the timing was terrible, Shannon," Patrick told host Shannon Bream of Mattis' broadside. "And I think there are a lot of people speaking up now that are creating real distractions and undermining what we're all trying to do in this country." CURFEWS CONTINUE: MAJOR CITIES TELL AMERICANS TO STAY HOME FOR YET ANOTHER NIGHT Mattis released a statement to The Atlantic Wednesday evening slamming Trump for his leadership in the wake of George Floyd's death, which has been marked by violence and looting in major American cities. "Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people — does not even pretend to try," Mattis said. "Instead he tries to divide us." Turning to Floyd's May 25 death following his arrest by Minneapolis police, Patrick told Bream that Floyd's passing and the subsequent turmoil "breaks my heart." "We have...
    Leaders across the country need to come together to address the pain and frustration felt by black Americans, former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile said Saturday. In an interview on "Fox & Friends Weekend" with host Griff Jenkins, Brazile said she woke up this morning with a heavy heart. MINNEAPOLIS COP WHO KNELT ON HANDCUFFED BLACK MAN ARRESTED "As you know Griff, we're in a crisis. And, at a moment like this, it's very important that all of our nation’s leaders, not just those who are elected but community leaders, the clergy -- everyone -- come together," she said. "This is one of those crises where we do need empathy, we need an understanding of why this pain, why this trauma is causing so much grief." Demonstrators kneel before police Saturday, May 30, 2020, in Minneapolis. Protests continued following the death of George Floyd, who died after being restrained by Minneapolis police officers on Memorial Day. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez) Brazile said the damage being caused by rioters and looters shouldn't overshadow the efforts of demonstrators trying to peacefully honor 46-year-old George Floyd and call for justice. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died while being...
