I have struggled with milia my whole life—I’m pretty sure it’s from the dirty and sweaty headbands I would wear for softball games and never washed, but we won’t talk about that. In case you’re not familiar with milia, it’s a benign skin condition that results in small white bumps. It’s often caused by dead skin, sebum, and flakes becoming trapped in the pores, but can also stem from using comodogenic products that clog the pores.

On top of milia, I also struggled with picking at my acne instead of treating it properly and leaving it alone (even though I know better!) because I was never able to find a way to get rid of the stubborn acne deposits under my skin, especially on my forehead. On day, I was scurrying through Target as one does, when I came across a bundle of the La Roche-Posay Cleanser , Toner, and Effacla Set . I had seen the Effaclar treatments on TikTok before, but was skeptical to give it a try since it was $30 for the one 0.7 fl oz tube. But because the bundle was $30, I decided to pick it up and give it a try.

‘Tiger King’ star on 2024 presidential bid: ‘This ain’t a joke’

Joseph Maldonado-Passage, better known as “Joe Exotic” of the “Tiger King” from the Netflix docu-series of the same name, told Fox News over the weekend that his 2024 presidential bid isn’t a joke. 

“First of all, you know, it’s my constitutional right to do this. It doesn’t matter what people think. This ain’t a joke,” Maldonado-Passage said in a phone interview with Fox News’s Lawrence Jones on “Cross Country” aired Saturday.

The “Tiger King” star is serving a 21-year federal sentence after being convicted on multiple charges, including Endangered Species Act violations and a murder-for-hire scheme targeting animal rights activist Carole Baskin, .

The former reality star is running under the Libertarian Party banner, via which he previously ran under for Oklahoma governor back in 2018. 

Maldonado-Passage told Fox News he is running for president to spur change in the political system and the justice system, and to ask “real questions” on behalf of tax-paying Americans.

“We have President Putin [who] just has warrants for his arrest for war crimes. We have President Trump under the possibility of an indictment and other criminal charges. We have Hunter Biden and President Biden under investigation for money laundering and making bad deals,” Maldonado-Passage said.

“What the hell’s the difference in somebody in prison that sees the system for what it really is and exposing this and trying to fix it?”

Millions of Americans stopped working from home in 2022: Labor Dept.

Millions of Americans stopped working from home in 2022, with the number of employers reporting some teleworking falling to near pre-pandemic levels, according to a Labor Department report released this past week.

About 72 percent of private-sector establishments reported little to no telework among employees in August to September 2022, compared to about 60 percent from July to September of 2021.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic transformed the American workplace, some 76.7 percent of employers reported little to no telework among employees.

The percent of employers reporting that all of their employees were teleworking did not see significant change in 2022, at about 11 percent compared to about 10 percent in 2021.

The percent of establishments reporting that some of their employees were working from home dropped in 2022. About 16 percent reported that they had some employees working from home, compared to about 30 percent in 2021.

A Bloomberg report showed that the number of remote work opportunities varies by region.

Bloomberg reported that job-data found college towns, government centers and technology hubs offer the highest number of remote jobs.

Lansing, Mich., had the highest rate of remote job postings, at about 39 percent of all postings, followed by Topeka, Kansas, at 32 percent, according to Bloomberg.

The report also found that workplaces in the South were less likely to offer remote work, with only about 2.5 percent of jobs in Bradenton, Florida explicitly offering hybrid or fully remote work.

Trump Rally Crowd Eerily Quiet As He Acts Out Ron DeSantis Crying and Begging for His Help

GOP primary candidate Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Texas on Saturday and attacked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at length, as he has spent many weeks doing, but his own MAGA crowd was noticeably under-enthused by the remarks.

Trump’s mocking impersonations have always been a big hit at his rallies , and are a staple of his speeches. But when in Waco he said that DeSantis came to him with “tears in his eyes” begging for an endorsement, the lack of reaction in the crowd was in a way much louder than any raucous laughter at the mocking of Democrats like Hillary Clinton or Andrew Gillum.

In his build-up, Trump trashed DeSantis over his congressional record on entitlements like Social Security and Medicare. The ex-president whose administration locked down the entire country during the covid pandemic then bashed the early re-opening Florida governor for his record on covid. He also said that DeSantis is “not good” on crime, and said his poll numbers are dropping.

Those typical Trump applause lines got virtually no response at all from the crowd. He stirred up some positive reaction by describing himself as a “loyalist.”

When he then said DeSantis came to him “tears in his eyes,” while at “almost nothing” in the polls, there was some light, scattered chuckling somewhat audible.

“So he came, and he really wanted, I said, ‘You can’t win, can you? How do you, can win?’” Trump said. Then he acted out DeSantis begging him.

“‘Sir, if you endorse me, I’ll win. Please, Please, sir, endorse me,’” Trump said, performing in a crying, pleading voice.

Again, there was some faint laughter in the crowd, but it was mostly quiet. Exceedingly quiet in comparison to all of Trump’s other applause and laugh lines in the speech.

Matt Gaetz took some shots at DeSantis at the rally (not to mention Nikki Haley ), as did MyPillow’s Mike Lindell. But this was by no means a big sell to the crowd. Compared to how Trump’s crowd normally reacts to his bits, the reaction to his mocking DeSantis was practically dead air.

The wide world of woke | Sheneman

Published by

What is woke? Do you have any idea, because the folks who use it to describe everything from gender inclusive books to AP African American studies classes can’t quite seem to define it. The past few weeks have seen a rash of viral instances of frequent users of the term unable to define what in the hell it means. I guess wokeness is a lot like the supreme court’s definition of pornography, hard to explain but you know it when you see it. Woke entered the lexicon on the left. “Stay woke” was a frequent refrain among civil rights activists for a number of years. A reminder to be mindful of who a…
