College students create bath and skin care products from local ingredients to support farmers and minimize waste from plastic packaging

There’s an implication that the younger generation aren’t as enthusiastic about agriculture as their parents and elders are. Due to the rise of technology and modernization, they tend to have different interests that mostly revolve around what’s trending. 

Still, this sweeping generalization didn’t hold sway for a group of first-year college students who started a bath and skin care line known as Bituin which aims to help the country’s farmers. 

Bituin is composed of three people, Jade the founder, and its co-founders Andal and Marquez, who wish to remain anonymous at this point in time since they envisioned that their venture would be primarily associated with the local farmers. 

“Our intention is to create and produce cheap but quality zero-waste hygiene products accessible to the masses,” the trio said. 

Established in July 2020, Bituin aims to sell zero-waste bath and skincare products using locally sourced natural products to ultimately help

Cornell students create Quarantine Buddy website to match friends

“You come on any time,” Benkendorf said from Sunrise, Fla. “I’ve got a dog you can play with. I’ve got a spare room. Anytime you need a vacation. If they close you down again, Stacie, you’re welcome.”

Weldon and Benkendorf have never met in-person, but over the past four months they’ve developed a friendship after matching with each other on a website. Quarantine Buddy, founded by two Cornell University students in April, matches people from around the world based on their background and interests, and they meet virtually.

The website has helped more than 50,000 people — spanning all 50 U.S. states and more than 100 countries — build friendships while stuck at home.

“We kind of realized how lonely and isolating this can be for so many people,” said Jordyn Goldzweig, a Quarantine Buddy co-founder. “The pandemic itself really brought out the fact that a lot of people are

Online shopping is a major industry, and that’s an understatement. In the U.S. alone, we’re projected to have 300 million online shoppers by 2023. That’s more than 90% of the entire U.S. population. For any brick-and-mortar store or business, having an online store — or at least an online presence — is essential.

The convenience, speed, and accessibility of the Internet make it appealing to consumers, who use it for product purchases and product research. Your small business site will help you attract and retain customers, generating more profit.

Best of all, building a website no longer requires extensive knowledge of website development, web design, or even coding. You only need to follow a few simple steps.

• Choose a website builder

• Select your domain name

House Democrats to unveil bill to create commission on ‘presidential capacity’

Trump responded to Pelosi’s initial comments on Thursday by tweeting that “Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation. They don’t call her Crazy for nothing!”

Pelosi has repeatedly questioned Trump’s mental health and suggested that he needs an “intervention” from family members and White House advisers.

Pelosi suggested again on Thursday that the medications that Trump is taking for COVID-19 are causing mental impairment and erratic behavior.

Two days ago, Trump tweeted that he had instructed his aides to stop negotiating with Pelosi on a pandemic aid package. But then hours later, Trump called on Congress to pass piecemeal measures like aid for the airline industry, an additional round of stimulus checks and additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program to help small businesses.

How To Create An Onsen Bath At Home, According To An Expert From A 1,300-Year-Old Japanese Spa Town

A trip to an onsen is a quintessential part of a trip to Japan. The age-old ritual of soaking in a hot spring-fed bath quietly among others feels like an escape from the stresses of everyday life—something just about everyone needs right now.

While the pandemic has made travel to Japan off-limits for most tourists right now, it hasn’t put a damper on recreating the onsen experience at home, using tips from Colin Fukai. He serves as global marketing chief of Nishimuraya Honkan, a Japanese ryokan (or inn) with rooms that lead to a lush garden, sublime kaiseki meals made of ultra-fresh seafood and seasonal vegetables, and its own on-site onsen exclusively reserved for guests.

Armed protesters in America create stress test for police

Stone Mountain, Ga.

On a steamy Georgia summer day, the militiamen came. They came with long rifles around their shoulders and handguns stashed in the waist bands of athletic shorts.

After Stone Mountain Park denied a permit for an armed protest by an Alabama militia on Aug. 15, “that meant that everything was going to be in our yard, on our side of the mountain,” says Jasmine Little, a Stone Mountain city councilor.

Indeed, the armed group of white Alabamians proceeded to the Stone Mountain village square, where they were met by a larger group of counter-protesters, some of whom were also armed.

Residents were urged to stay out of the area, given the uncertainty of what might happen with all that weaponry around. Meanwhile – in the summer of 2020, with protests breaking out all across the nation – police decided to stay back.

When shouting and swearing escalated

Whether decorated with contemporary, clean-lined tables, antique Shaker-style cabinets, or the ever-sought-after subway tile backsplash, the all-white kitchen has been so popular for so long, it’s hard to imagine it ever going out of style.

How To Create a Kitchen With a Soul, According to Home Design Experts

Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen may evoke the warmest emotions. After all, it’s here that people gather with family and friends, to share food and good company. It’s no wonder the kitchen is often called the heart of the home—and that it’s a key selling point, promising a great lifestyle.

But kitchens also run the risk of being cold and soulless. What’s the point in having top-notch appliances if no one actually wants to hang out and use them? Like food, a kitchen needs to have a certain depth—let’s call it soul.

“A kitchen with a soul is a unique space that provides comfort, warmth, and a sense of peace,” says Ron Woodson of Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design in Los Angeles. “These are spaces that honor one’s personal style or the original time period in which a home was built.”
