HOW EUPHORIAS LEAD MAKEUP ARTIST SPARKED A GENZ BEAUTY MOVEMENT

first_imgEuphoria LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement A scroll through makeup artist Doniella Davy’s Instagram feed yields a showcase of all the kaleidoscopic makeup looks she’s created for the first season of HBO’s new hit show Euphoria. There’s Rue (Zendaya) with her sooty liner and glitter tears streaming down her cheeks; Jules (Hunter Schafer) with her dizzying array of Technicolor gazes; Maddy (Alexa Demie) with her glossy lips and constellations of Swarovski face crystals; and Kat (Barbie Ferreira) with her vinyl red pout and gothic smoky eyes.

ALERT Town Beach Is CLOSED For Swimming Due To High Bacteria Count

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Recreation Department has announced that Silver Lake is currently CLOSED for swimming due to a high bacteria count detected in this week’s water testing.“To minimize the risk of illness from contaminated water, beaches are required to be tested for “indicator” bacteria ― bacteria that indicate the presence of fecal contamination,” reads the announcement. “Silver Lake is tested for Enterococci or E. coli. We had an exceedance this week, therefore the Beach is closed for swimming until a re-sample tests clear.”This is the lake’s first closure of the season, and it comes at an inopportune time. The Wilmington Police Association’s Beach Day is scheduled for this Thursday, August 1, from 11am to 2pm, at Town Beach.“The Police Beach Day is STILL ON with games, activities, DJ and lunch, but no swimming,” Recreation Director Karen Campbell told Wilmington Apple. “The beach will be retested on Friday.”Silver Lake is tested every Tuesday during beach season.

2000yearold Ashoka Stupa restored in remote China

first_imgA symbol of the advent of Buddhism from India to China, the renovated Stupa and Ashoka pillar along with a huge golden statue of Buddha was consecrated by Gyalwang Drukpa, the spiritual head of Drukpa lineage of Buddhism based in Ladakh, on Tuesday in China’s Qinghai province, located adjacent to Tibet Autonomous Region.Legend has it that over 2,500 years ago, Buddha’s disciples retrieved one skull bone, two scapulas, four teeth and 84,000 pearl-like sariras (relics) after Lord Buddha’s body was cremated. Also Read – Nine hurt in accident at fireworks show in French resortAccording to Buddhist records, Ashoka collected all of Sakyamuni’s (Buddha) sarira, stored them in pagoda-shaped shrines before sending them to different parts of the world.China is believed to have received 19 of them, including the one in Nangchen, but most of them have collapsed due to natural wear and tear as well as negligence. Three more such Stupas were discovered in Chinese cities of Xian, Nanjing and near Ayuwang in Zhejiang Province. Also Read – Pakistan Army ‘fully prepared’ to face any challenge: Army spokesmanThe Nangchen Stupa is the first to be discovered in the Tibetan region. The fate of the other 15 sent by Ashoka to China is unknown so far.While the advent of Buddhism to China were well chronicled since 68 AD when first Buddhist temple White Horse was built in Luoyang by Chinese monk Xuanzan after a 17-year- long voyage to India, the Stupa signifies efforts by Ashoka to spread the religion around the world.In the new temple here, the pillar with a stone containing an original inscription was prominently placed between a renovated structure and the Stupa, remnants of which according to monks were preserved by the locals from the ravages of invasions of Mongols and the decade-long Cultural Revolution of Mao Zedong during which historical relics, artifacts and cultural and religious sites were destroyed.last_img read more

Celebrate midautumn festival with Moon Cakes

first_imgYauatcha, a dim sum teahouse from London will be celebrating the popular Mid-Autumn Festival of China with the introduction of limited edition moon cakes from September 1 to 30 at their restaurant. Like most Chinese festivals, the Mid-Autumn Festival too has its dedicated delicacy, the moon cake, whose shape symbolises reunion and togetherness in the Chinese culture. Yauatcha has created a modern interpretation of the classic Chinese moon cake, sweet with a thick Chinese style custard infused with Asian ingredients. The outer filling is pastry decorated with delicate patterns to suit the discerning palate. Available in four unique flavour options such as the Jasmine tea moon cake, Salted caramel and sesame moon cake, Coconut and mixed nuts moon cake and the zingy Lemon zest moon cake, Yauatcha will serve these delicious desserts alongside the green tea ice cream. The moon cakes as well as the green tea ice cream are both eggless and thus suitable for vegetarians.

Open Mainframes Project introduces Zowe A new opensource framework to simplify development

first_imgIBM with its partners, Rocket Software and CA Technologies, have announced the launch of Zowe at the ongoing Open Source Summit in Vancouver, Canada. It is the first z/OS open source project, which is part of the Linux Foundation’s Open Mainframe Project community. Why is Zowe introduced? The rapid technology advancements and rising expectations in user experience demands  more productive and better integrated capabilities for z/OS, an operating system for IBM mainframes. Zowe enables delivery of such an environment through an extensible open source framework. It aims to create an ecosystem of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), System Integrators, clients, and end users. By using it, development and operations teams can securely manage, control, script and develop on the mainframe like any other cloud platform. What are its components? The four main components of Zowe are: the Explorer server, API Mediation Layer, zLUX, and Zowe CLI. Source: Zowe Zowe APIs and Explorers z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF) supports the use of REST APIs, which are public APIs that your application can use to work with system resources and can also extract system data. With the help of these REST APIs, Zowe submits jobs, works with the Job Entry Subsystem (JES) queue, and manipulates UNIX System Services (USS) or Multiple Virtual Storage (MVS) datasets. Explorers are visual representations of these APIs that are wrapped in the Zowe web UI application. They create an extensible z/OS framework that provides new z/OS REST services to transform enterprise tools and DevOps processes to incorporate new technology, languages, and modern workflows. Zowe API Mediation Layer The following are the key components of API Mediation Layer: API Gateway: It is built using Netflix Zuul and Spring Boot technology. Its purpose is to forward API requests to the appropriate corresponding service through the microservice endpoint UI. Discovery Service: It is built on Eureka and Spring Boot technology. It acts as the central point in the API Gateway that accepts announcements of REST services, and is a repository for active services. API Catalog: It is used to view the services running in API Mediation Layer. You can also view the corresponding API documentation to a service. Zowe Web UI Web UI named zLUX, modernizes and simplifies working on the mainframe.The UI works with the underlying REST APIs for data, jobs, and subsystems, and presents the information in a full-screen mode. It gives users a unifying experience where various applications can work together. Zowe Command Line Interface (CLI) Zowe CLI is used to allow user interactions from different platforms with z/OS. The platforms which can be cloud or distributed systems are able to submit jobs, issue TSO and z/OS console commands, integrate z/OS actions into scripts, and produce responses as JSON documents with the help of Zowe CLI. Currently, the Zowe is available in beta and is not intended for production use. The Zowe Leadership Committee is targeting to have a stable release by the end of the year. To know more about the launch of Zowe, refer to IBM’s announcement on their official website.
