Lupita Nyong’o looks flawless in first beauty ad for Lancôme

 

Lupita Nyong’o is stunning – and her new ad for Lancôme proves this yet again.

 

The beauty brand’s first ad featuring their newest spokesperson released this week and Nyong’o looks radiant with her glowing chocolate-colored complexion.

 

782572750131641236

 

The Oscar-winning actress became endorsed by the beauty brand in April – and her first ad highlight’s Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation, a smooth blemish-free product which is “available in 28 shades for all skintones.”

 

The foundation is being touted as one of the brand’s more diverse products, which provides “endless perfection” for women of almost every complexion.

 

And with the current Vogue magazine cover girl promoting their product, Lancôme seems to be sending a message of appreciation for diversity and consumers of color.

Going Where No “We The Geeks” Has Gone Before

 

This afternoon, we’re celebrating the end of National Oceans Month and one year of progress on President Obama’s Climate Action Plan — so we’re diving into ocean science by hearing from an expert living 63 feet below the surface.

 

At 2:00 p.m. ET, the White House and the Weather Channel will host “We the Geeks: SUBMERGED!” to discuss the importance of oceans to our way of life and how oceans both contribute to and are impacted by climate change and weather patterns — with one of our participants streaming live from the ocean floor!

Senate Democrat: Obama ‘Must’ Come to Congress Before Iraq Military Action

 

Published on Jun 25, 2014

A longtime ally of President Barack Obama says he must come to Congress before taking military action in Iraq, except to secure the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., the former head of the Democratic National Committee, said Obama “must seek congressional approval” before launching military action against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) unless there is a direct and imminent threat to the United States, such as a threat to the U.S. Embassy. There is no such imminent threat now, Kaine said.

Raw Video: President Obama Stops for Lunch at Chipotle

 

 

Ahead of the Working Families Summit today, President Obama stopped by a local Chipotle in the Woodley Park neighborhood of Washington, D.C. for a burrito bowl, and a conversation with a few working parents.

It was an opportunity for him to hear from Americans balancing the responsibilities of work and family — aided by companies with flexible, supportive policies — and he was “looking forward to comparing notes about changing diapers.”

Policies like paid leave and flexible hours aren’t just smart for parents, they’re smart for business. As President Obama said, “not only do families benefit and children benefit, but the businesses benefit and the economy benefits.”

Monday: Join the conversation on working families

 

The modern family looks different than it has before. More parents are working, and nearly a third of families with children are single-parent families.

 

It’s not 1960 anymore, but you could be forgiven for thinking our workplaces still feel like it: Most moms and dads don’t have access to paid leave or a flexible workplace.

 

It’s time for workplace policies that match our reality — and give all of us the best chance to succeed at work and at home. So tomorrow we’re hosting an online conversation on working families and the 21st-century workplace.

 

If this is an issue that matters to you, tune in to WorkingFamiliesSummit.org starting at 9 a.m. ET tomorrow to join President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Dr. Jill Biden in this important conversation.

The White House Summit on Working Families: Addressing The Needs Of Working Families In America.

 

Addressing the Needs of Working Families in Rural America

 

 

This was originally posted on the Huffington Post, and is part of a series of essays about the issues facing working families, leading up to the White House Summit on Working Families on June 23, 2014.

 

Krysta Harden is Deputy Secretary for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

 

You can learn more about the Summit and how you can get involved at www.workingfamiliessummit.org.

 


 

Last Wednesday, I participated in a regional forum of the White House Working Families Summit that was held at Virginia State University in Petersburg, Virginia. Coming from a small town in Southwest Georgia myself, I can relate to the unique challenges that rural Americans face. Growing up, my father worked seven days a week on our peanut and cattle farm with help from my mother. To make sure our family had a constant source of income and health insurance, my mother also worked off the farm at the local independent bank. I am fortunate to be the product of hard working parents who provided my sister and me with the best opportunities possible.

 

All families have a right to have access to a good education system, affordable healthcare and jobs. Our rural families are concerned about creating strong prospects for their children, whether it is on or off the farm. But it is also essential that there are opportunities that will attract young people back to rural areas and help us secure the future of agriculture.

The Obama Administration is committed to providing opportunities for working families across the country. That’s why earlier this year President Obama created the Made in Rural America Export and Investment Initiative to help rural businesses and leaders take advantage of new investment opportunities and access new markets abroad.

 

In rural America, transportation and market access issues create complex challenges for working families. During the summit, I spoke with Maxine Ayers, legal assistant by day and partner in a seven-generation family farm by night. Maxine is working hard to help prepare her son to take over the family farm. In addition to working her job and taking care of the farm, she is also responsible for her in-laws’ medical care and must regularly drive two hours to get her in-laws the care they need. I also spoke with Dee Dee Darden, owner of a country store and farmer, who faces similar rural transportation hurdles. On top of running her store and farm, she must drive three to four hours to sell her livestock. While transportation issues are still a challenge, USDA brings economic opportunities to rural communities through programs such as the Rural Community Development Initiative and Rural Business Opportunity Grants.

 

There are many ways that USDA is working to create opportunities in rural areas. First, we work to address issues of access and quality of life through efforts like Rural Development’s community facilities and broadband programs. Second, we support new markets for farm and ranch products, at home and abroad. Whether it’s promoting international trade, bringing products to local and regional markets or supporting the bio-based economy, USDA programs help expand opportunities for rural businesses to thrive. Third, your local USDA office can help you find programs for your community, your business and your family.

 

In the United States, there are twice as many farmers that are ages 65 or older than those ages 45 or younger. As our aging farmers transition to retirement, it is crucial that we determine who the next generation of farmers and ranchers will be. It is easy to forget that one percent of the population is responsible for feeding the entire country and much of the world.

 

Young, talented rural leaders are needed to help us tackle challenges like climate change, food security and the overall health of our economy. It was so promising to see college students in the audience who were passionate about farming and rural America. Whether it is their local FFA or 4-H chapter or serving in student government, I always encourage young folks to get involved in their local communities.

 

I am proud to be from rural America, and I know that others feel the same sense of community that I do, but there are many challenges that rural residents face. Folks in rural America have an unparalleled amount of drive and passion that makes their communities a vibrant place to live. At USDA, we will continue to do everything we can to help working families succeed for generations to come.

JOIN US FOR A CONVERSATION ON WORKING FAMILIES FOR A 21ST CENTURY WORKPLACE

 

On June 23, 2014, the White House Council on Women and Girls, the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Center for American Progress (CAP) will host a Summit on Working Families to focus on creating a 21st century workplace that works for all Americans. Workplaces that make full use of the talented pool of American workers are essential – to a thriving and healthy economy, to enable businesses to stay competitive in today’s global economy, and to help all workers ensure the economic stability of their families.

 

Too many working Americans – both women and men – are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet and respond to the competing demands of work and family. We will convene businesses, economists, labor leaders, policymakers, advocates, and ordinary citizens to discuss policy solutions that can make a real difference in the lives of working families and ensure America’s global competitiveness in the coming decades.

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T’ easy to spell, hard to do for Obama critics. Disparaging the president is uncalled for.

 

By Laura Washington, Chicago Sun-Times

 

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T’  the song goes.

 

It is easy enough to spell, but for some vocal critics of President Barack Obama, it seems exceedingly hard to do.

 

As the president moves toward the land of the lame ducks, his political enemies are calling for blood. That’s no shocker at this stage of a presidency. In this case, the cuts go deeper.

 

For some, it is not enough to disagree. Some high-status public figures seem determined to demean, denigrate and ridicule the president of the United States.

 

On June 12 the Speaker of the U.S. House stepped to a podium and insulted Obama for his handling of the ongoing crisis in Iraq.

 

“It’s not like we haven’t seen over the last five or six months these terrorists moving in, taking control of western Iraq,” U.S. Rep. John Boehner said at a press conference. He added, in his trademark, obdurate tone: “And what’s the president doing? Taking a nap!”

 

Last week, U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk pronounced that Obama has fallen short in his dealings with Iran, reported CBS2 Chicago. “I’m very worried that the president doesn’t appear to be up to this job, of protecting the United States,” he said.

 

The disrespect comes in words, tone and attitude. He’s “taking a nap.” He’s “not up to this job.” They refer to the president as though he were a wayward child.

 

It’s nothing new. Obama supporters, especially African-Americans, have fumed over the insults for years. Oprah Winfrey recently suggested it has something to do with his race. “There’s no question about that,” she said.

Last week, former Vice President Dick Cheney leveled a blistering attack on the president’s foreign policy in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” Cheney wrote. Obama cares more about his golf game than the raging conflict in Iraq, Cheney asserted.

(I could give you a few thousand words on Cheney’s track record of mistakes, but that would be digressing).

Some critics refuse to address the president by his title, instead sneering lowly pronouns, like “he” and “him.” On the talk shows, via the blogosphere, even on the floor of Congress, they ridicule him in personal, demeaning ways.

In 2009, President Obama was speaking on immigration reform before a joint session of Congress. “You lie!” U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina shouted from his seat.

Others, from Donald Trump to Newt Gingrich, have insisted that the president is some kind of alien, a “foreigner,” demanding he produce his birth certificate to “prove” he is an American.

I know how it is. In today’s hyper-partisan USA, Launching tirades at political enemies provides cheap, red meat for the base.

Still, we are talking about the president of the United States, a man who, while imperfect, is very much a grown-up, possesses high intelligence and has many talents. In two national elections, American voters definitively entrusted that man with the job.

That man represents the presidency, the most powerful office in the world. Politicians who publicly disrespect the man who holds that office derogate their own profession.

The disrespect and insults give license to the world’s despots to, in turn, disrespect him, his position, and us.

A First Look: The White House Summit On Working Families, Monday June 23rd, 2014.

Monday: Join the conversation on working families

 

The modern family looks different than it has before. More parents are working, and nearly a third of families with children are single-parent families.

 

It’s not 1960 anymore, but you could be forgiven for thinking our workplaces still feel like it: Most moms and dads don’t have access to paid leave or a flexible workplace.

 

It’s time for workplace policies that match our reality — and give all of us the best chance to succeed at work and at home. So tomorrow we’re hosting an online conversation on working families and the 21st-century workplace.

 

Live from the Working Families Summit

 

 

If this is an issue that matters to you, tune in to WorkingFamiliesSummit.org starting at 9 a.m. ET tomorrow to join President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Dr. Jill Biden in this important conversation.

The White House Summit on Working Families: Addressing The Needs Of Working Families In America.

 

Addressing the Needs of Working Families in Rural America

 

 

This was originally posted on the Huffington Post, and is part of a series of essays about the issues facing working families, leading up to the White House Summit on Working Families on June 23, 2014.

 

Krysta Harden is Deputy Secretary for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

 

You can learn more about the Summit and how you can get involved at www.workingfamiliessummit.org.

 


 

Last Wednesday, I participated in a regional forum of the White House Working Families Summit that was held at Virginia State University in Petersburg, Virginia. Coming from a small town in Southwest Georgia myself, I can relate to the unique challenges that rural Americans face. Growing up, my father worked seven days a week on our peanut and cattle farm with help from my mother. To make sure our family had a constant source of income and health insurance, my mother also worked off the farm at the local independent bank. I am fortunate to be the product of hard working parents who provided my sister and me with the best opportunities possible.

 

All families have a right to have access to a good education system, affordable healthcare and jobs. Our rural families are concerned about creating strong prospects for their children, whether it is on or off the farm. But it is also essential that there are opportunities that will attract young people back to rural areas and help us secure the future of agriculture.

The Obama Administration is committed to providing opportunities for working families across the country. That’s why earlier this year President Obama created the Made in Rural America Export and Investment Initiative to help rural businesses and leaders take advantage of new investment opportunities and access new markets abroad.

 

In rural America, transportation and market access issues create complex challenges for working families. During the summit, I spoke with Maxine Ayers, legal assistant by day and partner in a seven-generation family farm by night. Maxine is working hard to help prepare her son to take over the family farm. In addition to working her job and taking care of the farm, she is also responsible for her in-laws’ medical care and must regularly drive two hours to get her in-laws the care they need. I also spoke with Dee Dee Darden, owner of a country store and farmer, who faces similar rural transportation hurdles. On top of running her store and farm, she must drive three to four hours to sell her livestock. While transportation issues are still a challenge, USDA brings economic opportunities to rural communities through programs such as the Rural Community Development Initiative and Rural Business Opportunity Grants.

 

There are many ways that USDA is working to create opportunities in rural areas. First, we work to address issues of access and quality of life through efforts like Rural Development’s community facilities and broadband programs. Second, we support new markets for farm and ranch products, at home and abroad. Whether it’s promoting international trade, bringing products to local and regional markets or supporting the bio-based economy, USDA programs help expand opportunities for rural businesses to thrive. Third, your local USDA office can help you find programs for your community, your business and your family.

 

In the United States, there are twice as many farmers that are ages 65 or older than those ages 45 or younger. As our aging farmers transition to retirement, it is crucial that we determine who the next generation of farmers and ranchers will be. It is easy to forget that one percent of the population is responsible for feeding the entire country and much of the world.

 

Young, talented rural leaders are needed to help us tackle challenges like climate change, food security and the overall health of our economy. It was so promising to see college students in the audience who were passionate about farming and rural America. Whether it is their local FFA or 4-H chapter or serving in student government, I always encourage young folks to get involved in their local communities.

 

I am proud to be from rural America, and I know that others feel the same sense of community that I do, but there are many challenges that rural residents face. Folks in rural America have an unparalleled amount of drive and passion that makes their communities a vibrant place to live. At USDA, we will continue to do everything we can to help working families succeed for generations to come.

JOIN US FOR A CONVERSATION ON WORKING FAMILIES FOR A 21ST CENTURY WORKPLACE

 

On June 23, 2014, the White House Council on Women and Girls, the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Center for American Progress (CAP) will host a Summit on Working Families to focus on creating a 21st century workplace that works for all Americans. Workplaces that make full use of the talented pool of American workers are essential – to a thriving and healthy economy, to enable businesses to stay competitive in today’s global economy, and to help all workers ensure the economic stability of their families.

 

Too many working Americans – both women and men – are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet and respond to the competing demands of work and family. We will convene businesses, economists, labor leaders, policymakers, advocates, and ordinary citizens to discuss policy solutions that can make a real difference in the lives of working families and ensure America’s global competitiveness in the coming decades.

Weekly Address: Bringing Our Workplace Policies into the 21st Century

 

000000000000000000000000001obamacrat

 

In this week’s address, the President previewed Monday’s first-ever White House Summit on Working Families where he will bring together businesses leaders and workers to discuss the challenges that working parents face every day and lift up solutions that are good for these families and American businesses. Many working families can’t afford basic needs like childcare or receive simple benefits such as paid family leave that are common in most countries around the world.

 

When hardworking Americans are forced to choose between work and family, America lags behind in a global economy. To stay competitive and economically successful, America needs to bring our workplace policies into the 21st century.
