*BUCKLE UP – CALIFORNIA MAKES 76,000 INMATES, INCLUDING VIOLENT AND REPEAT FELONS, ELIGIBLE FOR EARLY RELEASE IN PUSH TO REDUCE PRISON POPULATION:

California on Saturday will begin increasing early release credits for about 76,000 inmates, including tens of thousands who were convicted of violent crimes, as the state continues to reduce its prison population. The Associated Press reported that of the 76,000 who will be eligible for early release, some 63,000 were convicted of violent crimes. They will now be eligible to obtain good behavior credits that will “shorten their sentences by one-third instead of the one-fifth that had been in place since 2017,” the outlet reported. That number includes 20,000 inmates who were sentenced to life sentences with the possibility of parole.

“More than 10,000 inmates convicted of a second serious but nonviolent offense under the state’s ‘three strikes’ law will be eligible for release after serving half their sentences. That’s an increase from the current time-served credit of one-third of their sentence,” the AP added. In addition, nearly 2,900 nonviolent inmates who were imprisoned as part of the “three strikes” law will be eligible for early release after serving half of their sentence. Further, “all minimum security inmates in work camps, including those in firefighting camps, will be eligible for the same month of earlier release for every month they spend in the camp, regardless of the severity of their crime.”

*CHINA REPORTEDLY SUFFERS ITS FIRST POPULATION DECLINE SINCE RECORDS BEGAN IN THE 1940S:

China will soon confirm that its population has dropped for the first time since it started recording the figure in 1949, the Financial Times reports. The new Chinese census was completed last year and its release was expected this month but has been mysteriously delayed. The headline figure will reportedly show that the nation’s population has declined below the 1.4 billion mark recorded two years ago, even though Beijing has relaxed most of its notoriously strict family-planning policies. Huang Wenzheng, a fellow at Beijing think tank the Center for China and Globalization, said the census release will be “handled very carefully” because it could have “a huge impact on how the Chinese people see their country and how various government departments work.” He added: “The pace and scale of China’s demographic crisis are faster and bigger than we imagined… That could have a disastrous impact on the country.”

*DISNEYLAND’S SNOW WHITE RIDE ATTACKED FOR ‘KISS WITHOUT HER CONSENT’:

Disneyland’s revamped Snow White ride has become the latest target of ‘cancel culture’ — because it features the iconic kiss by Prince Charming that happens as she sleeps and “without her consent.” The theme park in Anaheim, California, opened Friday for the first time in more than 400 days since the pandemic started — showing off its newly revamped “Snow White’s Enchanted Wish” ride. But it was immediately ripped in a review that said the park should have “re-imagined” the 1938 cartoon classic to avoid ending with the iconic “true love’s kiss” that awakened Snow White. SFGate reviewers Katie Dowd and Julie Tremaine attacked the ride for including the “kiss he gives to her without her consent, while she’s asleep, which cannot possibly be true love if only one person knows it’s happening.” “Haven’t we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue?” the pair wrote on the site, the digital home of the San Francisco Chronicle.

*SEATTLE COP ASKS FOR A BOX OF CHOCOLATES. EMPLOYEE: ‘I WON’T SERVE YOU’:

On Tuesday, when a Seattle police officer asked for a box of chocolates at a local chocolate store, an employee reportedly responded, “No, I won’t serve you.” According to The Post Millennial, the officer was accompanied by a trainee when they entered a store called Chocolati. After the encounter with the employee, whom The Post Millennial described as a “white female with green streaks in her hair,” The Post Millennial contacted the store. An employee told The Post Millennial, “Is this how you want to spend your time? Getting essential workers in trouble? Shouldn’t you be spending your time harassing homeless people?” After the reporter for The Post Millennial then said they would attempt to contact the owner or manager, the employee agreed that would be a better idea, but then reportedly added, “… and go f*** yourself.”

The Post Millennial added, “Following the publication of this article, another police officer contacted The Post Millennial with a similar story from a different date where they were refused service at the Chocolati location on E. Green Lake Dr. N.”The Post Millennial noted that according to sources at the Seattle Police Department, the police have the fewest deployable officers since the 1980’s.

*’THIS IS A QUESTION OF FAIRNESS’: CAITLYN JENNER SAYS BIOLOGICAL MALES SHOULDN’T’ COMPETE IN GIRLS’ SPORTS:

Caitlyn Jenner said that biological males should not be allowed to compete in girls’ sports because “it just isn’t fair.” “This is a question of fairness. That’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school. It just isn’t fair, and we have to protect girls sports in our schools,” Jenner, who won a gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympic Games, explained. “I didn’t expect to get asked this on my Saturday morning coffee run, but I’m clear about where I stand,” Jenner explained in a tweet. “It’s an issue of fairness and we need to protect girls’ sports in our schools.

*NEARLY HALF OF AMERICANS THINK THEY’RE A BETTER PERSON THAN EVERYONE THEY KNOW:

For almost half of all Americans, modesty may not be their best quality. A new study finds nearly one in two people believe they’re the best person they know. In a recent survey of 2,000 U.S. residents, 81 percent say they believe that humankind is inherently good. Three in four believe they themselves are fundamentally a good person. When researchers asked respondents how they would compare themselves to others in their lives, 46 percent went a step further, admitting (in their eyes) they’re “better” than everyone else they know. The survey was conducted by OnePoll and commissioned by Behold Retreats, a wellness company that specializes in the therapeutic use of plant-based medicines to aid in personal and spiritual growth. Looking at responses by gender, female respondents were less likely to think of themselves as good (67% vs 86% of men) and more likely to believe that humanity is inherently bad (20% vs 4% of men).

*RECORDS SHOW BLM
CO-FOUNDER PATRISSE CULLORS’ JAIL REFORM CAMPAIGN GAVE $60K TO HER CONSULTANCY, THOUSANDS MORE FOR FRIENDS AND LUXURY MALIBU RESORT:

According to campaign finance records, a Los Angeles-based jail reform group named “Reform LA Jails” founded and led by Patrisse Cullors — a co-founder of Black Lives Matter — made payments to multiple figures and organizations linked with Cullors herself — including her own consulting firm, as well as a luxury resort in Malibu. “Janaya & Patrisse Consulting,” a business Patrisse Cullors owns, received $60,000, according to the records. The committee name, according to the submitted records for the statement dates of July 1 to September 30, 2019, is “Reform LA Jails, A Committee Supporting Jail Reform and Community Reinvestment, Sponsored by Justice Team Network, A Project of Tides Advocacy.

In total, the committee listed $903,003.26 in contributions received, $381,822.09 in expenditures, and outstanding debts of $49,540.13. Of these expenditures, $44,313.74 went to “Bowers Consulting Firm,” whose founder and president, Shalomyah Bowers, appears to be a board member on another non-profit founded by Cullors, “Dignity & Power NOW.”  According to campaign finance records, “Reform LA Jails” also spent nearly $26,000 on “meetings” at a luxury resort in Malibu in 2019. “The payments were made on behalf of Reform LA Jails by a consulting firm owned by the co-author of Cullors’ 2018 biography, Asha Bandele, campaign finance records show,” according to the records. Reform LA Jails spent $10,179 on “meetings and appearances” at the Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club in Malibu, California. $15,593 was spent at the Malibu Conference Center, a “corporate conference facility” owned by the Calamigos resort. “Guests at the 200-acre resort, where rooms start at $600 a night, have exclusive access to a private five-acre strip of the Malibu coast,” noted media sources. Patrisse Cullors sparked a backlash earlier in April “After reportedly going on a “real-estate buying binge,” purchasing “four homes with a price tag totaling upwards of $3 million.”

*YIKES – ARE N.Y.P.D. OFFICERS RUSHING TO RETIRE AMID THE CITY’S ANTI-COP CLIMATE?

More than 5,300 NYPD uniformed officers retired or put in their papers to leave in 2020 — a 75 percent spike from the year before, department data show. The exodus — amid the pandemic, anti-cop hostility, riots and a skyrocketing number of NYC shootings — saw 2,600 officers say goodbye to the job and another 2,746 file for retirement, a combined 5,346. In 2019, the NYPD had 1,509 uniformed officers leave and 1,544 file for retirement, for a total of 3,053. The departures and planned departures of 5,300 officers represents about 15 percent of the force. Already, as of April 5, the NYPD headcount of uniformed officers has dropped to 34,974 from 36,900 in 2019.

Through April 21 of this year, 831 cops have retired or filed to leave — and many more are expected to follow suit in the current anti-cop climate, according to Joseph Giacalone, a retired NYPD sergeant and adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. “Cops are forming a conga line down at the pension section and I don’t blame them,” Giacalone said. “NYPD cops are looking for better jobs with other departments or even embarking on new careers.” The flurry of Finest farewells began after the Minnesota police-involved killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, with 272 uniformed cops putting in retirement papers from then through June 24, the NYPD data show.

*MILLENNIALS ARE MOVING BACK INTO AWKWARD TEEN ROOMS IN RECORD NUMBERS:

For millions of young Americans, the pandemic has been a time machine back to the early aughts. By July 2020, 52% of 18 to 29 years olds, or 26.6 million adults, were now residing with a parent, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis — the highest number since the Great Depression. In New York, some 300,000 left the city. Many of those people found themselves living in time capsules: lovingly preserved childhood bedrooms, plastered in posters and magazine cut-outs of boy bands and James Cameron blockbusters, and tricked out with décor from the Myspace era.  Many are still there. Jess Cohen, 39, was one of them. She left her Manhattan apartment during the pandemic to move back in with her family in Fresh Meadows, Queens. Her modest bedroom hadn’t changed since high school, two decades ago. A “Titanic” poster, a Barbie-sized Kate Winslet doll, the sign-in board from her Sweet Sixteen, stuffed animals and glass knickknacks from a school formal where just as she had left them.  The girlish pink walls were the cherry on top of what feels like a “Blossom” meets “Clarissa Explains It All” retrospective.

*IN BOT WE TRUST – PEOPLE PUT MORE FAITH IN COMPUTERS THAN OTHER HUMANS:

Do you find yourself reaching for the calculator, even for the really simple math problems? There’s a lot of concern these days that technology, like artificial intelligence, is too smart for its own good. Despite fear over how intrusive these algorithms are becoming, a new study finds people are actually more willing to trust a computer than their fellow man. Researchers at the University of Georgia say this is especially true when people find tasks too challenging to handle alone. However, it’s not just the “heavy lifting” humans are running to computers for help with. From choosing the next song in the playlist to finding better fitting pants, algorithms are making more and more of the daily decisions in people’s lives — whether they realize it or not. “Algorithms are able to do a huge number of tasks, and the number of tasks that they are able to do is expanding practically every day,” says Eric Bogert, a Ph.D. student in the Terry College of Business Department of Management Information Systems, in a university release. “It seems like there’s a bias towards leaning more heavily on algorithms as a task gets harder and that effect is stronger than the bias towards relying on advice from other people.”

*MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION LINKED TO RISE IN FATAL CAR ACCIDENTS:

For giant cities like New York, cars and traffic are just part of the urban landscape. New York is also one of the growing list of places across North America legalizing marijuana. Unfortunately for drivers (and even pedestrians) a new study finds those are two things that simply don’t mix. Canadian researchers find legalizing cannabis leads to an increase in fatal auto accidents; potentially putting hundreds of drivers in danger each year. A team from McGill University analyzed legal recreational cannabis use and deadly motor vehicle collisions across the United States. They then applied the data to Canadian roads to find out how legalizing the drug may impact local roads. “Analyses of data suggest that legalization of recreational cannabis in United States jurisdictions may be associated with a small but significant increase in fatal motor vehicle collisions and fatalities, which, if extrapolated to the Canadian context, could result in as many as 308 additional driving fatalities annually,” writes researcher Sarah Windle and her co-authors in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

In Canada, researchers find cannabis consumption increased by three percent between 2018 and 2019, when the country legalized its use. According to Canadians reporting their own usage, that raised the number of people using marijuana to 17 percent. Among cannabis users with a driver’s license, the study finds 13 percent admit driving within two hours of using marijuana. The total number of people admitting to getting on the road after recent cannabis use jumped from 573,000 to 622,000. A 2012 analysis estimates cannabis-related auto collisions in Canada result in $1.1 billion worth of societal and economic damages annually. Drivers under the age of 34 are responsible for the majority of that damage.

*NYC’S HELL’S KITCHEN RESIDENTS FEAR SUMMER OF THE ‘LIVING DEAD’ AS HOMELESS MULTIPLY:

New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen residents fear a summer of the “living dead” as thousands of vagrants the city dumped in the neighborhood over the last year emerge from their homeless hotels. A “sewer” and a “cesspool” is how longtime Hell’s Kitchen activist Marisa Redanty described the neighborhood in recent weeks, as the return of warm weather produced a sudden upswing in the presence of drug-addled and deranged homeless people on the streets of Midtown. “This summer will be the night of the living dead,” she predicted. NYPD data shows the area’s homeless hotels have already become quality-of-life hellscapes. Police, EMS and fire have responded to 233 calls already this year at Spring Hill Suites on West 36th Street, compared with just 22 calls at the same time last year when the city began moving shelter residents into hotels in April.

*ACCLAIMED AUTHOR STEVEN MARKOFF STUNNED AT GEORGE W. BUSH’S LACK OF REGRETS:

In his “CBS Sunday Morning” interview with Norah O’Donnell, anchor and managing editor of the “CBS Evening News,” on April 18, former President George W. Bush shared his disappointment about immigration reform. He told O’Donnell that the lack of progress on the issue was one of the biggest disappointments of his presidency, especially since it was a major part of his campaign platform. Acclaimed Author Steven C. Markoff is stunned at the additional regrets he feels Bush should have mentioned. “As I set out in my book, The Case Against George W. Bush, I would have thought that W. not preparing for 9/11 (for which he was well armed in advance with solid intelligence that we would be attacked), approving and supporting torture (violating US and international law) and conning our country into an unnecessary war with Iraq in 2003 that killed over 500,000 men, women and children would have earned at least a small regret.”

More of the interview was presented Tuesday, April 20, on the “CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell,” and Wednesday, April 21, on “CBS This Morning.” O’Donnell visited Mr. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush at their Texas ranch, south of Dallas. There, the 74-year-old opened up about his life after leaving office, his thoughts on the country, his painting and his new book, “Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants” (Crown).

In 2006, Mr. Bush gave an Oval Office address on immigration.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Norah O’Donnell: “Still, nothing’s been done.”

President Bush: “No, a lot of executive orders, but all that means is that Congress isn’t doing its job.”

O’Donnell: “Is it one of the biggest disappointments of your presidency, not being –”

Mr. Bush: “Yes, it really is. I campaigned on immigration reform. I made it abundantly clear to voters this is something I intended to do.”

Bush told O’Donnell he’s ready to re-enter the debate on immigration, including lobbying his own party on the issue.

*WHAT’S UP? BY SARAH GARCIA
  *** If you still don’t believe that the lunatics are running the asylum, get a load of an op-ed that a civil engineering student from the University of California, Los Angeles, just penned for the College Fix. In it, Sullivan Israel shares that he recently took part in an online debate about “systemic racism” sponsored by the Bruin Republicans — and that some UCLA students complained during the debate that automatic soap dispensers are racist. Yup. You know, the contraptions in public restrooms all across the fruited plain that magically emit gobs of liquid soap soon after you place your hands underneath them?

***At first, the big corporations were bowing to the woke mob. But now, many are becoming part of the woke mob.

***America has been wrecked on the shoals of identity. Identity politics has been characterized casually as a form of tribalism: Americans grouping themselves according to biological or sexual characteristics, in opposition to other groups associated by biological or sexual characteristics. There is certainly truth to the idea that such tribalism has damaged America in extraordinary ways — that tribalism acts as the sort of factionalism the Founding Fathers feared, tearing Americans from one another and forcing them into polarized units to compete against others in a battle over control.

EXAMINER – INVESTIGATES: THE WORLDS YOUNGEST BILLIONAIRES


Forbes dropped its 2021 billionaire list. There are currently 2,755 members of the three-comma club, including new entrant Kim Kardashian West. The “youngest billionaires” is always an interesting portion of the list. Here’s a mix of inherited wealth and self-made fortunes:

· Kevin David Lehmann (18 years old; worth $3.3B): The German teen inherited his father’s 50% stake in a leading drugstore chain (dm-drogerie markt).

· Wang Zelong (24; $1.5B): This Chinese national inherited a stake in her family’s pigment chemicals business.

· Alexandra & Katharina Andresen (24, 25; $1.4B each): The Andresen sisters inherited a stake in a Norwegian investment firm run by their father, Johan (who is still active).

· Austin Russell (26; $2.4B): Russell dropped out of Stanford in 2012 to found a startup that develops self-driving car technology (lidar). When the company (Luminar Technologies) went public via SPAC in December, Russell joined the three-comma club.
  · Andy Fang and Stanley Tang (28, 28; $2B each): These 2 entrepreneurs co-founded delivery startup DoorDash in 2013 and became billionaires when the company went public in December.
  · Sam Bankman-Fried (29; $8.7B): This MIT grad built a near $10B fortune from crypto trading (via his firms Alameda Research and FTX). Bankman-Fried is a proponent of effective altruism, which means earning as much as he can to give away as much as he can (he was one of President Biden’s largest donors).

*’ WOKE’ PRINCIPAL OF ELITE NYC SCHOOL RIPPED ‘DEMONIZING’ PROGRESSIVE CURRICULUM:

The head of an elite Manhattan school that booted a teacher for ripping its extremist “antiracism” policies was recorded admitting that it has been “demonizing white people,” according to audio released recently. “We’re demonizing kids, we’re demonizing white people for being born,’’ George Davison, principal of the private Grace Church School, was allegedly caught telling whistle-blowing  teacher Paul Rossi on the tape. “We are using language that makes them feel ‘less than’ — for nothing that they are personally responsible for,’’ supposedly the woke principal acknowledges, according to the audio released by Rossi. “The fact is, I am agreeing with you that there has been a demonization that we need to get our hands around in a way in which people are doing this [understand],’’ Davison says. Rossi, a math teacher, says he was booted from the school for the rest of the year for casting it as a leftist indoctrination site.

*IN SAN FRANCISCO, DRUG OVERDOSES CLAIMED TWICE AS MANY COVID-19:

More than twice as many people died from accidental drug overdoses in San Francisco in 2020 than from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, according to preliminary data released by the city’s office of the Chief Medical Examiner. A total of 713 people died from drug overdoses in the city in 2020 compared to 255 who died from the CCP virus, commonly known as the coronavirus. Nationwide, the largest increase in the number of overdose deaths occurred in March and May 2020 and coincided with the CCP virus lockdowns, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “The increases in drug overdose deaths appear to have accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the CDC said in a statement.

*HUNTER BIDEN GUARDED BY TAXPAYER-FUNDED SECRET SERVICE WHILE ENJOYING ‘WEEK-LONG HOLLYWOOD DRUG AND PROSTITUTE BINGE’:

Hunter Biden was guarded by taxpayer-funded Secret Service while he enjoyed “a week-long drug and prostitute binge in a Hollywood hotel” in May of 2018, the Daily Mail reports. According to newly revealed screenshots from Hunter Biden’s largely media-denied but independently authenticated infamous laptop, Hunter refused to come out of his hotel room at the prodding of Secret Service agents. A bill from May 2018 shows Hunter stayed at the Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood for seven days on the third floor “ordering room service each night, drinking at the hotel bar and racking up a $5,195 bill – including a $400 fine for smoking in his room,” and sought refilled prescription drugs of stimulant Viagra, antidepressant Lexapro, and anxiety-reducing Clonazepam, according to the report.

“H[unter], I’m in the lobby come down. Thanks,” the message purportedly came from the agent. Hunter responded, “5 minutes.” “Come on H this is linked to Celtic’s account. DC is calling me every 10 minutes. Let me up or come down. I can’t help you if you don’t let me H,” the text message read from the officer. According to the Daily Mail, the “Celtic’s account” is “an apparent code name for a senior politician under protection.” Hunter replied to buy more time, “I promise. Be right down sorry.” But there was still no sign of Hunter in the lobby.

“Dales here. He a going to front desk call and tell them to give us a key now H. As your friend we need to resolve this in the immediate. Call the front desk now H or I will have to assume you are in danger and we will have to make them give us keys,” the next demand came of Hunter. Hunter replied, “Really I am coming down right now. I really promise. Was in bathroom buddy. Coming right this second.” But Hunter apparently did not come down. “We’re at the door. Open it,” the text from the alleged agent says.The protection in 2018 raises questions of legality, as the Bidens claimed they did not have protection in 2018. Joe Biden lost his secret service protection after his vice presidency. The Daily Mail also reported, “Press releases by a private security firm published a week after the text exchange with Hunter, announced the agent left the Secret Service after a 25-year career and joined the firm as CEO.”

*LOU GEHRIG’S LEGENDARY 1938 YANKEES BAT SELLS AT AUCTION FOR $715,120:

A baseball bat used by Lou Gehrig during his final full season with the New York Yankees sold for $715,120 at an auction over the weekend. The 34-inch, 36-ounce Bill Dickey model Louisville Slugger model was used by the baseball legend in 1938, according to SCP Auctions, which received 26 bids in the online sale. “It’s one of the best Lou Gehrig bats ever discovered and, obviously, the provenance is impeccable,” David Kohler, the auction house’s owner, told the New York Times. Gehrig quit using the heavier bat at the end of the 1938 season, his penultimate. In 1939, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a fatal neurological disorder that later became known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

*DE NIRO’S LAWYER SAYS HIS WIFE’S ‘THIRST FOR STELLA MCCARTNEY’ WILL MAKE HIM WORK TILL HE’S DEAD:

Robert De Niro’s lawyer said Friday that his estranged wife’s lavish spending habits and demands that are “rich with indulgence” will work the actor to death. During a divorce hearing, Caroline Krauss, De Niro’s attorney, said her client, age 77, is breaking his back trying to pay for Grace Hightower’s shopping: “When does he get the opportunity to not take every project that comes along and not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days so he can keep pace with Ms. Hightower’s thirst for Stella McCartney?” In 2019, Krauss continued, Hightower purchased a $1.2 million diamond ring. In 2015, the federal government placed a $6.4 million tax lien on the actor. Hightower’s lawyer Kevin McDonough countered that De Niro himself is the profligate, pouring millions into multiple home renovations and extravagant travel. McDonough said, “When Mr. De Niro goes to brunch Sunday in Connecticut, he charters a helicopter up there.” The two filed for divorce in 2018, and since then, De Niro has cut her allowance from $375,000 per month to $100,000 as of January, according to McDonough. The two signed a prenuptial agreement in 2004, but they continue to battle over the terms of the split, most heatedly over alimony payments.

*ACCLAIMED NUTRITIONAL PHARMACIST, BEN FUCHS, EXAMINES THE BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENTS:

The consequences of collagen loss as people get older are clear. Fine lines and wrinkles etch themselves into the skin as it sags. Collagen supplements have developed into a multibillion-dollar industry as a result of our efforts to replace missing collagen and recover a more youthful skin tone and healthy joints. Are these supplements the equivalent of a fountain of youth in a bottle, or are they all marketing gimmicks? Our own natural collagen helps to keep our skin plump and youthful. Is it possible that the kind that comes in a bottle would work in the same way? Acclaimed Nutritional Pharmacist, Ben Fuchs, has some thoughts on this matter. “Neither fountain of youth in a bottle or marketing hype, supplemental collagen can be incredibly valuable for supporting the synthesis of the body’s natural collagen and the connective tissue that it supports,” states Ben Fuchs. “That means fewer wrinkles, and more youthful skin as well as better bones, stronger heart and vasculature, and reduced risk of hernias, ruptures, and prolapses.”

People who took collagen for a few months saw some changes in wrinkles and skin dryness, according to reports. “The data are very weak,” says Nazanin Saedi, MD, associate professor and director of the Jefferson Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology Center in Philadelphia. Other dermatological therapies, such as Retin-A and laser resurfacing, have a lot more proof that they improve collagen development, according to her. Ben Fuchs continues, “By talking in collagen orally in supplements as well as through diet the body will have the raw materials it needs to produce its own. Still, cofactors like vitamin A, copper and most especially Vitamin C are required to turn the supplemental collagen ingested into actual collagen in the body. And dermatologic treatments can help too, although to maximize the benefits of topical strategies, it’s important to make sure the raw material and cofactors are present inside the body.”

Benjamin Knight Fuchs is a registered pharmacist, nutritionist and skin care chemist and for the past 35 years has been developing pharmacy-potent skin health treatments for estheticians, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons. “I believe that caring for your skin can be much more than cosmetic,” states Ben Fuchs. “I believe that caring for the skin is about the health of the skin. And that’s why I created Benjamin Knight Fuchs, R. Ph. Truth Treatment Systems; to provide topical nourishment for the skin that meets the strictest performance standards.” Ben formulated Truth Treatment Systems because he saw the need for topical treatments that worked with the biochemistry of the skin. Treatments that augmented and enabled dermal processes at the skin cell (not surface) level. Ingredients to activate fibroblasts, normalize keratinocytes, stimulate proteins and enhance the production of extracellular lipids.

Truth Treatment Systems remedies are made with 100 percent active and functional ingredients. They have no fillers, preservatives, waxes, emulsifiers, oils or fragrances. Their ingredients leverage the latest biochemical understandings and utilize proven strategies gleaned from years of compounding prescription skin health treatments for physicians and the most discerning patients.

*EXAMINER – BUSINESS: JEFF BEZOS DROPS KNOWLEDGE ON US

 
Since Amazon went public in 1997, Jeff Bezos has penned a much read annual letter to the company’s shareholders. With plans to hand over reins of the company to AWS head Andy Jassy later this year, Bezos dropped his final annual letter. After processing the emotions of never reading a Bezos annual letter again, our Jacob Cohen highlighted some key takeaways:

· On success: “If you want to be successful in business (in life, actually), you have to create more than you consume. Your goal should be to create value for everyone you interact with.”

· On safety: “Roughly 40% of work-related injuries at Amazon are related to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)… We’re developing new automated staffing schedules that use sophisticated algorithms to rotate employees among jobs that use different muscle-tendon groups…”

· On life: “To all of you: be kind, be original, create more than you consume, and never, never, never let the universe smooth you into your surroundings. It remains Day 1.”

*EXAMINER – A LOOK BACK:

April 1942. “Portuguese-Americans in California. Mr. H. Ormond, who is a leading jeweler in San Leandro, came to the United States from the Azores Islands 23 years ago when he was 17 years old. For three years he lived in San Francisco and then moved to Oakland, where he worked in a jewelry store for ten years. In 1932 he opened his own store in San Leandro. Mr. Ormond and his wife have worked long hours to build their establishment and now hold a respected position in the social and business life of San Leandro. Mr. Ormond said, ‘I received my education as a boy in the Azores but I have found that all the things that I learned there as well as the principles of honesty and integrity and thrift and industry that my parents taught me have served me well in my adopted country. While I now speak a different language, all the principles of life in the United States and the Azores are the same’.
