How Black Lives Matter Is Challenging India’s Obsession With Fair Skin
Skin-lightening brand Fair & Lovely, which earned more than $500 million in sales in India last year, announced on June 25 that it would be removing the word "fair" from its products.
For decades, Indian advertisers have propagated an association between skin fairness with career success, beauty, and social status. In 1975, Fair & Lovely was one of the first brands to monetize India's societal desire for light skin by turning it into a beauty product.
Now, this brand which has spent 45 years building itself into a household name with skin-whitening face creams, is trying to revamp its identity.
Florida Beach Packed with Visitors Within Hour of Reopening Despite Social Distancing Order
As some beaches in Florida reopened on Friday for the first time in nearly a month, not everybody seemed to heed government warnings about social distancing.
As soon as the ban lifted at 5 p.m. local time, crowds of cheering people quickly descended upon Jacksonville Beach, according to CNN, which noted that several beach visitors were seen sunbathing, an activity Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry had specifically said would be prohibited.
Photos also showed people running on the very crowded beach, playing volleyball with friends and surfing within the first hour the beach was open to the public again.
Matthew Broderick's sister said she received preferential treatment while battling coronavirus
The sister of actor Matthew Broderick said she received preferential treatment at a California hospital while battling the coronavirus.
Janet Broderick, a pastor at All Saints Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills, was hospitalized last month after falling ill upon returning from a conference in Kentucky. She has since recovered and is back home.
Broderick told New York Magazine that her general practitioner didn't know about her famous familial connection and "didn't care very much." But that changed when the pastor went to an emergency room at a Beverly Hills hospital.
"As soon as I got ahold of the guy at the hospital who knew who Matthew was, I was given the name of the head of the emergency room," she said. "Well, trust me, the folks I've spent my lifetime working with in Jersey City would never have been given the name of the head of the emergency room. If they were, it would have been disregarded."
"I think I'm absolute living proof that this system is completely corrupt," she told the outlet.

Church that thinks homosexuality is ‘destructive’ stays open during coronavirus because it’s a ‘divine institution’
The Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland has announced that it is “not of the view” that services need to stop to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
This statement was issued two days ago, in the wake of UK prime minister Boris Johnson’s March 16 briefing that said everyone must avoid both “mass gatherings” and “pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues”.
The Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland said: “Although many have interpreted UK government advice and remarks [about coronavirus] as meaning that all services in church buildings should cease, and have stopped meeting, the Church Interests Committee is not of that view.”

Americans are hitting bars and bragging about not social distancing
The nation's top infectious disease researchers have repeatedly warned, if not begged, Americans to practice social distancing as the contagious coronavirus spreads through the population.
That's because, due to a woeful lack of testing in the nation, no one knows how many Americans are infected — and the resulting respiratory disease (COVID-19) is 10 times more lethal than the flu. Sunday morning, Marc Lipsitch, an infectious disease epidemiologist at Harvard University, emphasized this point, noting that the true number of infections is certainly "much higher" than confirmed cases.
But, though some folks are social distancing, many still clearly aren't. Some are even actively bragging about not doing it. This weekend, journalists and others reported that bars across the nation were packed in Boston, Chicago, Nashville, and New York City.

It's Time to Stop Commenting on Your Coworker's Lunch
"Before you comment on someone’s food, ask yourself why you feel compelled to do so," says Caplan. "Much like commenting on someone’s appearance, food comments may be rooted in fat-phobia, or a diet mentality. Food is one part of the big picture that is health, and we should all have body autonomy in choosing what to eat based on our likes, resources, values, and preferences."
