Benefit mascara – how to find a cheaper version

by Perry Romanowski @ The Beauty Brains

Ellen inquires…What is the best mascara? I use Benefit’s “They’re Real!” and for me, it does what it says – no flaking, smudging, comes off with a little oil. But it is about 22 dollars.

What Is A Frontpage?

by @ Frontpage - Articles

IP.Content 2.0 uses the term "frontpage" to refer to both the homepage of the Articles module, and the landing page of each individual category. We have introduced this new navigational structure to better allow you to showcase content, while presenting it in a standardized format that your users will be able to understand and jump into without assistance.

Firstly, you will now be able to define "frontpage" templates in the ACP for the Articles module. IP.Content will ship with 3 defaults:

  • 1x2x2 Layout
    This layout will display articles in a traditional "news" style layout.
  • Blog format
    This format will display articles in a blog-style format.
  • Single column
    This layout will force articles to display in a single column, one per row.
You can use one or more of these frontpage layouts, or you can create your own. Experiment with displaying articles in different formats on your homepage to determine which layout your users like best.

Articles must be set to "Show on front page" in order for them to display on the homepage frontpage.

In addition to the homepage frontpage, each category has it's own frontpage. The category frontpage functions identically to the homepage frontpage, except for two important factors:
  • Only records from within that category (and it's subcategories) will be displayed
  • The "Show on front page" setting is not honored for the category frontpage
You will be able to easily review and manage the articles set to display on the frontpage from a new section of the ACP labeled "Frontpage Manager". We feel that this new area of the articles section will help showcase important articles and increase user interaction with your articles section.

Commentaires sur Gender Marketing Encounters: Marti Barletta par Colleen Faheu

by Colleen Faheu @ Commentaires pour Womenology

Hi, Marti, I always learn something from your work. This time it's not about women but about Canada! I've experience that underscores your view that "...Canada is a more forward-thinking market than the US. Big companies like Unilever, P&G, or Ford often view the Canadian market as a good place to try new thinking." As I'm doing missionary work to establish the discipline of Audio Branding in North America, I knock on a lot of doors. Canadian marketers, however, find me and reach out to me." Hah! I think I'll make more trips to Toronto. Cheers, Colleen

The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Makeup Brushes

by Tashina Combs @ Logical Harmony

Many Logical Harmony readers ask for help finding cruelty-free makeup brushes. For many people who transition to a cruelty-free beauty routine, switching to cruelty-free makeup brushes is often one of the last steps. So many makeup brushes are made from animal fur or animal hair. While some brands do claim that it is ethically sourced, the truth is that they often don’t know where the fur is sourced from. Just like with false lashes, many animal hair makeup brushes are bi-products of the factory farming or fur industries. While most cruelty-free consumers do focus on avoiding animal testing, many also avoid makeup brushes that are not synthetic. That’s why I decided to create this guide to cruelty-free makeup brushes. There are so many vegan makeup brushes out there to try. All the brands listed do make vegan makeup brushes but may make some non-vegan brushes as well. What are Cruelty-Free Makeup Brushes? Cruelty-free makeup brushes are made from synthetic fibers. They are not made from animal fur or animal hair. Can brands that are cruelty-free make makeup brushes from animal fur or animal hair? Yes. Because the term “cruelty-free” refers to animal testing, brands that do not test on animals can make makeup […]

Bruno Tonioli Laughs Off DWTS Fall As One Contestant Vows to Dance Again After Being Eliminated

Bruno Tonioli Laughs Off DWTS Fall As One Contestant Vows to Dance Again After Being Eliminated

by Dana Rose Falcone @ PEOPLE.com

WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD

Latin night was filled with both flames and fizzles for the 12 remaining couples on Dancing With the Stars. And although he wasn’t performing, judge Bruno Tonioli took a tumble.

While bantering with fellow judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman as they doled out criticism to Drew Scott and Emma Slater, Tonioli stood up from his chair and fell backwards. Though he quickly got up, crewmembers attended to Tonioli, 61, during the commercial break and gave the Italian choreographer water. He laughed it off, and returned to his post to watch Vanessa Lachey and Maks Chmerkovskiy‘s salsa.

Tonioli stood again, though, to praise actor Frankie Muniz and pro Witney Carson after they danced to Bruno Mars’ “Perm.” The duo received a 25/30 — the night’s highest score.

PEOPLE’s special issue 25 Seasons of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is on stands now.

And though Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev‘s samba to “Despacito” earned them the lowest mark Tuesday, it was pop star Debbie Gibson and her partner Alan Bersten who went home. (98 Degrees’ Nick Lachey and dancer Peta Murgatroyd accompanied them in the bottom two, but received just enough votes to continue to next week’s Disney night.)

“This show and this short amount of time and this guy right here, I feel like I got my life back,” Gibson told cohost Erin Andrews after learning her fate. “I am so thrilled and we’re going to keep dancing!”

RELATED VIDEO: Debbie Gibson Talks Lyme Disease

The “Lost in Your Eyes” singer opened up during the season 25 premiere about her struggle with Lyme disease and how it affected her ability to perform. “There are days where I’ve been feeling not so well and dealing with ankle pain and knee pain or something’s not working right,” Gibson said during week 1 rehearsals. “But in pushing through it safely, that’s when some of the best progress made.”

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (at 8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

by Tashina Combs @ Logical Harmony

Are there cruelty-free brands at Dermstore? You may be surprised! This online retailer is starting to carry a lot more cruelty-free brands. Even some of the most popular cruelty-free brands found at Sephora, Ulta, or Nordstrom. For many consumers, big online shops like Dermstore are one of the main places where they purchase cosmetics, skin care, and hair care.

The Cruelty-Free Brands at Dermstore are: 100% Pure 21 Drops – 100% vegan Anastasia Beverly Hills Aquis bareMinerals – It should be noted that they are cruelty-free, but […]

Franklin & Whitman is not only cruelty-free and vegan, but they also donate 5% of their sales to dog rescue organizations. I think it’s great to see brands give back.

Media Management

by @ Media - Articles

The media module in the IP.Content ACP section allows you to quickly and easily manage multimedia files you may need to use with IP.Content. While you can certainly upload your files through FTP, or link to offsite files, you may find it easier to upload the files using the media section of the ACP, and then copy the links for use within pages, templates, and blocks. Media files uploaded through the IP.Content Media Manager are also easily inserted using the Template Tag helper window available when editing pages, blocks and templates with just a single click.

From within the media module, you can create folders, upload files, move files and folders, rename files and folders, and delete files and folders. When viewing a listing of files you will see a preview (if the file can be previewed), and selecting a file will present some other pertinent details. You can also right click on the file and use your browser's "Copy Link" option to quickly get the link to the file.

This tool can be a timesaver when you simply need to upload an image quickly for use within a page, block or template. The media folder is defined in the media_path.php file in your forum root directory, giving you the freedom to move and organize your paths as needed.

Taylor Swift Sent Victoria Arlen Flowers After She Danced to 'Look What You Made Me Do' on DWTS

Taylor Swift Sent Victoria Arlen Flowers After She Danced to 'Look What You Made Me Do' on DWTS

by Dana Rose Falcone @ PEOPLE.com

Wishes from Taylor Swift make for a truly happy birthday. After Victoria Arlen danced to the singer’s hit “Look What You Made Me Do” on Monday night’s Dancing With the Stars, Swift sent her flowers with a sweet note.

“Victoria, you are incredible and I was so honored you danced to my song. I’m so inspired by you. Love, Taylor,” Arlen, who turned 23 Tuesday, read aloud after cohost Erin Andrews presented the paralympian with the gift.

For Arlen, the song choice made perfect sense. “I danced to her song ’22’ when I turned 22 on my last birthday, so I danced to her yesterday for this birthday,” she explained.

PEOPLE’s special issue 25 Seasons of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is on stands now.

The DWTS family also presented the ESPN host with a bright pink cake — the color she wore on the season 25 premiere to remind her of her first wheelchair, crutches and leg brace — topped with a disco ball.

A new age ushered in fresh bout of confidence for Arlen, who exposed her legs for the first time on the show Tuesday. The milestone comes just one year after she regained the ability to walk following almost four years in a vegetative state due to her transverse myelitis and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.

RELATED VIDEO: Bruno Toniolis Most Insane Dancing With the Stars Moments

“It’s putting on a whole different character and that’s very daunting for me,” Arlen said in rehearsal with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

Getting out of her comfort zone paid off for the pair; They earned a score of 20 out of 30 from the judges on Latin night.

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.

President Obama Reveals He Cried When Dropping Off Daughter Malia at College: ‘It Was Like Open-Heart Surgery’

President Obama Reveals He Cried When Dropping Off Daughter Malia at College: ‘It Was Like Open-Heart Surgery’

by Karen Mizoguchi @ PEOPLE.com

Former President Barack Obama was among the millions of parents who sent their kids off to college this fall — and like many, he shed some tears.

The 44th commander-in-chief recently revealed he was overcome with emotions when he and wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama moved their 19-year-old Malia into her campus residence at Harvard University in August.

“For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast. I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery,” Obama, 56, said at the Beau Biden Foundation‘s golf and tennis invitational at Delaware’s Wilmington Country Club on Sunday, according to a video shared by WDEL radio.

“I was proud that I did not cry in front of her,” Obama also joked. “But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren’t hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough.”

Last June, Malia graduated from Washington, D.C.’s private Sidwell Friends School, and opted to take a gap year before starting at Harvard.

The proud father of two also said that Malia’s momentous Harvard sendoff was “a reminder that, at the end of our lives, whatever else we’ve accomplished, the things that we’ll remember are the joys that our children – and hopefully way later, our grandchildren – bring us.”

RELATED LINK: Dad-in-Chief: White House Photographer Reveals Pics of His Favorite Day with President Obama

Though Malia briefly delayed the start of her college years, Obama told PEOPLE in December 2016 that his older daughter – and her younger sister Sasha, 16 – were “ready to get out, just out from their parents’ house.”

The mother of two added, “Malia’s going off to college. She’s a grown woman.”

And earlier this month, Obama shared the three pieces of advice he and his wife have tried to impress upon their daughters, including the importance of being kind, considerate, empathetic and hardworking. “These are the tools by which you can shape the world around you in a way that feels good,” he said.

Former Vice President Biden created the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children in 2015 to honor his late son’s legacy in “protecting the most vulnerable among us,” including protecting children from abuse.


Fergie Is ‘Open to Love’ But Thinks ‘It’s Too Soon to Even Think About Dating’ After Split from Josh Duhamel

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Fergie is keeping her options open.

The Double Dutchess singer, 42, revealed Tuesday night on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she wasn’t looking to pursuing a relationship with anyone after her split from Josh Duhamel.

“I don’t know,” she said. “It’s too soon for me to even think about dating. I’m open to love, but it’s just too soon.”

The insight came after Cohen asked her about a previous comment she had made during an interview about also getting romantic with women, to which Fergie downplayed.

“The things you say in an interview,” she said. “I let it all out there, and it’s so funny the one-liners people pick up on.”

The “Life Goes On” singer told PEOPLE recently that she was relieved that her separation from Duhamel, 44, was no longer a secret.

“Honestly, it was just getting a little weird for us with all the romantic questions,” she said while promoting her upcoming album in New York City in September.

RELATED VIDEO: Fergie Reveals ‘It Was Getting a Little Weird’ Pretending to Still Be with Josh Duhamel Before Going Public with Split

“We’re great friends, we love each other so much, and it just got to the point where it was getting a little weird,” she continued. “There’s no perfect time, so we just decided to do it.”

PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that Fergie and Duhamel were going their separate ways after eight years of marriage.

“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” they said in a joint statement. “To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”

While the pair’s split came as a shock to many, some who know them best said they had been traveling down different paths for a while.

“They have been leading separate lives for a long time,” a music insider said of Fergie and Duhamel in PEOPLE’s latest issue. “She wants to be out on the road doing her thing, while he is more chill. They clashed for a long time before they did anything about it.”

Navigation Menu

by @ Templates - Articles

IP.Content 2.3 includes a new feature designed to help you build your forums and website out the way you want to: control over your primary navigational menu.

The primary navigation menu is the the "tab" bar across the top of the page that includes links to each major section of your site. IP.Board builds this automatically based on the applications you have installed, but when you use IP.Content, you will likely find yourself creating new pages that you wish you could quickly link to in that same bar. It is possible to edit your skin templates manually to accomplish this, but this presents a few problems:

  • Your template edits may need to be reverted when upgrading in the future in order to inherit updates in the skin in future releases.
  • You will have to determine the logic necessary to show the tab as "lit up" when someone is viewing that page (and to ensure other tabs do not appear to be lit up).
  • It is inconvenient repeating this process each time a new page is created.
This is no longer a problem with IP.Content 2.3. You can now visit the "Navigation Menu" page available under the Settings module in the IP.Content ACP area and build tabs through an easy to use interface. You can control what order your tabs display in, and even put them before or in between default application tabs. You can control almost every aspect of the tab from the title, the textual tooltip, any additional non-default attributes (for instance, including a javascript click handler that will log the click in an analytics program) and more. You can even create submenus that will display on click or on hover, including many links underneath one tab.

You can also modify many aspects of your default application tabs as well, going beyond what IP.Board offers by default. For instance, using this tool you can add additional attributes to your application tabs, change the title, and modify the textual tooltip shown when a user hovers over the tab.

The best part about this new feature - IP.Content automatically figures out which tab to light up without any extra work on your part!

We hope this new feature in IP.Content 2.3 helps you better control your site the way you want it to be.

Template Variables Help

by @ Templates - Articles

When you edit content in IP.Content, whether it be blocks, templates or pages, there are many built in tags that you will need to or want to utilize in order to generate the content appropriately. Blocks have variables containing data that may be of use to your users. Page templates have variables that perform important functions, such as inserting the page title or marking where the page content should be displayed. It is nearly impossible to simply remember every variable that can be utilized in your pages and templates.

IP.Content features a template tag help panel that you can use to alleviate this problem. The panel can be minimized if you don't need it (and your preference is remembered so you won't have to minimize it each time you load a new template to edit). The panel is tabbed, providing you with various tag options based on the specific content you are editing. Database templates will show you the database tags you will need to use, while blocks will show you the variables being passed into the block template. You are able navigate some of the tabs when necessary in order to better determine the appropriate variables for the specific area you are editing.

A small icon is shown next to each tag, and clicking this icon will insert it into your templates automatically wherever the cursor is blinking. You need not manually copy and paste the tag - simply click to insert!

Some tags will have additional information or perhaps a relevant example of the data it represents. These tags will have an arrow indicator next to them to let you know that you can click on the arrow to view further details about that specific tag.

This panel is always available and dynamically adjusts to the type of content you are editing. It is but one small feature available in IP.Content designed to help you build your site the way you want, as efficiently as possible.

Brazilian Couple Finally Get a Chance to Have Wedding Photographs 60 Years After Getting Married

Brazilian Couple Finally Get a Chance to Have Wedding Photographs 60 Years After Getting Married

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

A Brazilian couple who married 60 years ago have finally gotten the chance to have their special day immortalized in photographs.

Dona and Seu Russo were married in 1957 in a modest wedding was in a relative’s yard with a cake baked by an aunt and a godmother sewing the wedding dress – none of which was caught on film.

Fast forward six decades, and the loving couple got a chance to pose for the photographs they never had at the time.

The couple had just their memories of the special day until photographers Vivian and Dávid Balatonfüredi from Sao Paulo Fotografia, along with collective of creatives from São Paulo, Brazil, came together to help them mark 60 years together. And, of course, photograph it this time around.

Their celebrant — who helped them renew their vows — Fernanda Caetano shared the story of the couple’s two weddings Instagram page.

The celebrant revealed their second wedding was made more special as they were able to share it with their nine children, 16 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A wedding dress designer as well as a local florist and tailor made sure they had everything they needed for a beautiful day while a wedding decorator captured the essence of their original wedding, with an outside ceremony with vintage and romantic details.

In their photographs that were 60 years in the making, the couple look very much in love, looking at each other with wide smiles, holding hands and leaning closely together.

Shonda Rhimes & Grey's Anatomy Cast Take a Knee in 'Solidarity of Racial Justice' at 300th Episode Party

Shonda Rhimes & Grey's Anatomy Cast Take a Knee in 'Solidarity of Racial Justice' at 300th Episode Party

by Karen Mizoguchi @ PEOPLE.com

Shonda Rhimes and the cast of Grey’s Anatomy are supporting NFL players’ protest of racial injustice in the wake of the backlash from President Donald Trump.

“and we took a knee in solidarity of racial justice. #takeaknee#greysanatomy #300th,” Rhimes, 47, shared on Instagram Tuesday, along with a photo of her, Ellen Pompeo, Jesse Williams and Debbie Allen on one knee at the 300th episode celebration party. (Jason Winston George, who plays Ben Warren, was cropped out of the picture.)

“We kneel because we are supposed to be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. #ilovethesepeople #300thepisode,” Pompeo captioned the same photo.

Meanwhile, Williams, 36, responded to a Twitter follower who tried to to get the hashtag #BoycottGreysAnatomy trending after their protest picture.

“No one’s scared of u. Also, u follow me. #GetYourLifeTogether See u this Thursday for our season premiere at 8pm!” the actor wrote.

The ABC drama, which is one of the longest-running scripted shows in TV history, will mark its 300th episode this season on Thursday.

Also on Monday, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny took a knee on the set of the upcoming reboot of The X-Files.

NFL players and celebrities continue to show their solidarity with athletes like Colin Kaepernick, who made headlines in Aug. 2016 for refusing to stand for the national anthem to protest racial injustice in the United States.

While numerous NFL stars kneeled and locked arms during the national anthem during a Sunday game in London, celebrities, including Stevie Wonder, Diddy and Uzo Aduba, lent their voices to the movement.

RELATED GALLERY: All the Stars Who Are Taking a Knee in Solidarity with the NFL National Anthem Protests

On Saturday, Rhimes tweeted: “I think: By kneeling, players don’t disrespect the flag.They ask US to respect the flag. They ask us to make the anthem true for all of us.”

During a rally speech in Alabama on Friday, Trump stated, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say, ‘Get that son of a b–ch off the field right now. Out, you’re fired.’”

RELATED VIDEO: Watch: Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

In addition, the president had a series of follow-up tweets. “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect…our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem,” he wrote. “If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”

Fans were left wanting more details and storylines after Tuesday’s season premiere of This Is Us, especially after that shocking ending showing how everyone’s favorite TV dad, Jack Pearson, died.

“I don’t know how to feel,” Mandy Moore told PEOPLE as she wiped away tears after watching the episode for the first time with her castmates at PEOPLE’s screening in Los Angeles. “It was weird to watch it but I’m so glad we got to watch it together. It’s nice to know some piece of the puzzle … Just seeing what we saw there was enough to make anyone upset.”

Meanwhile, Milo Ventimiglia said in a Q&A following the premiere hosted by PEOPLE’s Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle, that he is relieved that fans finally got a glimpse into what led to his character’s death. 

“I’m glad we’ve revealed a little bit to everyone,” he explained. “I know people have been asking questions and I stay silent because there’s so much I can’t reveal but I’m glad they know at least a bit.”

And there’s plenty more to come!

Read below to learn what Moore and Ventimiglia — along with their costars and creator Dan Fogelman — teased about what to expect in season 2, including specific tear-jerking moments from upcoming episodes.

 

What to Expect About Jack’s Death:

After Jack (Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Moore) end their separation and decide to deal with his alcoholism together, the episode cut to her driving up to a burnt house with bags of his possessions as firefighters surround the scene.

“That’s just a piece of the puzzle,” Moore told PEOPLE.

In fact, there are clues viewers might have missed: Kate is holding a dog, Randall has a girlfriend and Kevin has a broken leg leading up to the big monumental event.  

“This was always the plan. We talked about the fire and what happened to Jack,” Fogelman shared with PEOPLE. “This is something we’ve had planned out since inception. We wanted to start this season providing a few answers while still leaving us a lot of room to explore what happens.”

Leading up to tonight’s episode, Ventimiglia admitted that he’s been asked about Jack’s death for far too long. “It gets confusing because they say, ‘How do you die? Not how does Jack die?’ ” the Gilmore Girls alum said to PEOPLE. 

Adding, “I always wondered why is this good? I think when Dan would talk about him, there is always a darker side. Seeing that cracks are not cracks but deeper wounds we see a bit more why he chooses to be good. That’s the stuff we’re going to unpack.”

 

What to Expect About Kate’s Singing:

Fogelman revealed to PEOPLE that Chrissy Metz will be showcasing her real singing voice on the NBC hit drama. “She’s awesome. She sings next week on the show and it’s pretty awesome,” he said.

And Sterling K. Brown couldn’t agree more with Fogelman. “Chrissy Metz is a beast,” the two-time Emmy winner shared with PEOPLE.

“We made her sound a little more tentative … We thought we had to make this a realistic situation for Kate,” Fogelman also explained. “She is a 37-year-old trying to break into a tough industry that people have been working their whole lives to be a part of. It’s not going to just happen overnight because she wants it to be. She’s going to have to work at it and that’s something that Kate’s willing to do.”

He even joked, “Season 4 when we run out of ideas it’s going to turn into a musical.”

Metz, who earned an Emmy nomination for playing Kate Pearson, is loving how she can combine her passion for acting and singing.

“Dan is writing my dream life. I enjoy singing very much,” she told PEOPLE.

What to Expect About Randall Wanting to Adopt: 

This season, we learn Brown’s character, Randall Pearson, has major “baby fever” and wants to adopt a child with his wife Beth, played by actress Susan Kelechi Watson.

“It’s fulfilling the circle of life,” Brown told PEOPLE. “To honor my parents that gave me a life. It also puts Randall firmly in the moment instead of looking towards the future.”

But the process of adopting another member to their family may bring stress to the couple’s relationship, specifically after the death of Randall’s biological father, William.

“It’s a way you haven’t seen them before,” Watson said to PEOPLE about Randall and Beth’s marriage. “There were times when I was questioning myself, ‘Is this Beth?’ They’re on two very different sides. I learned that she wants to honor William too. It means something to her to honor him as well.”

And Moore can’t wait to find out why she’s “obsessed with Beth” in season 2.

“I want you to know everything about her. There’s an episode coming up that’s just ‘Ohhh,’ ” she said to PEOPLE. “I want to know everything about . There’s a really good episode that we just finishing shooting. I’m captivated.”

What to Expect About Kevin: 

Justin Hartley‘s character, Kevin Pearson, has landed a starring role in a new Ron Howard-directed film, and is in a committed relationship with his high school sweetheart.

“This is just the way things work. He was a man-child when we found him but he has come closer to what he wants to,” Hartley told PEOPLE.

Kevin’s big acting gig will also introduce viewers to Sylvester Stallone‘s big cameo.

“He walks into a room and he’s Sylvester Stallone. He’s a movie star,” Hartley teased. “He has this ability to disarm everyone in the room and when he starts talking to you, he’s like a guy. He’s a master and makes everyone laugh. As soon as he’s gone, you miss him.”

Brown couldn’t be happier for Kevin’s story arc this season.

“He’s got this love in his life, this burgeoning career and trying to balance both those things at the same time. I feel like Kev sometimes,” he confessed.

But look forward to a twist, according to Fogelman.

“Justin’s story is not going to go where you think. It is really going to knock people’s socks off,” he foreshadowed. 

What to Expect About Kate and Rebecca’s Mother-Daughter Relationship: 

It’s no secret that Kate has always been daddy’s little girl. (She has her late father’s urn at her apartment.) While fans will learn more about Jack’s death and how the loss will impact The Big Three, Rebecca may have a harder time connecting with her only daughter.

“They’re never quite on the same page. We get a closer look in the next episode. It’s pretty heartbreaking,” Moore told PEOPLE.

What to Expect About Toby:

In the premiere episode, Chris Sullivan’s character Toby still has yet to find his place in Kevin and Kate’s close relationship. But fans and viewers will get to learn more about Toby’s own family dynamic as his mother will be introduced.

“Toby has a lot going on with his mom. A lot going on we don’t know about,” Sullivan shared with PEOPLE.

“There’s a lot going on. There’s a lot under there we don’t know about,” said Sullivan’s TV fiancée Metz.

This Is Us airs at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Chip and Joanna Gaines are the definition of marriage goals, but their relationship didn’t necessarily have a fairytale start.

In the first chapter of The Magnolia Storyreleased as a sneak peek today, the Fixer Upper dream team spills the details of how they met — and it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

Joanna agreed to go out on a date with Chip after meeting him and his roommate “Hot John” — who she actually tried to approach minutes earlier, but was too shy — in the waiting room of her dad’s auto shop. She had second thoughts, however, after Chip arrived an hour and a half late to pick her up.

“He didn’t apologize for being late, either. He had so much confidence. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Only Chip could be an hour and a half late and have no one mad about it,” Joanna writes.

WATCH THIS: HGTV Stars Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri Compete to Make the Better Birdhouse

The chapter continues to describe the timeline of their relationship, which didn’t actually start until months after they first went out, when Chip (in typical guy fashion) finally called Joanna back.

“I’d made a bet with Hot John to see who could hold out the longest before calling our dates back,” Chip writes “I really wanted that fifty dollars from John! That’s the only reason I didn’t call.”

After they went out a second time, the rest was history.

Sasha Pieterse Reveals She's Already Lost 15 Pounds on DWTS Amid Health Struggle: 'I Feeling Like Me Again'

Sasha Pieterse Reveals She's Already Lost 15 Pounds on DWTS Amid Health Struggle: 'I Feeling Like Me Again'

by Dana Rose Falcone @ PEOPLE.com

Dancing With the Stars season 25 is only in its second week, but the competition has already having an impact on contestant Sasha Pieterse.

The Pretty Little Liars star, 21, revealed on Tuesday’s episode that after gaining nearly 70 pounds over two years due to a hormone condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, she’s lost 15 pounds.

“I’m feeling like me again,” Pieterse told viewers. “Being on the show, I’ve lost over 15 pounds. It’s not an easy road, but being able to focus on getting myself healthy again, and the fact that I’m seeing results, getting better is all I can ask for.”

PEOPLE’s special issue 25 Seasons of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is on stands now.

The actress said she received some nasty comments after she started to gain weight. “It was really, really hurtful the way people reacted,” the star revealed. “People were staying stuff like: ‘She’s pregnant.’ ‘You’re fat.’ They were angry or mad that I looked like this. It was one of the hardest things I have ever been through.”

On top of that, Pieterse didn’t know why she was seeing numbers rise on the scale.

“I had no idea what was going on and I didn’t have any way of solving it,” she explained. “Very recently I was diagnosed with PCOS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, hormone imbalance. And finally I knew why this was happening to me.”

After dancing with partner Gleb Savchenko to Hailee Steinfeld’s “Most Girls,” Pieterse continued to glow.

“I feel like I’ve always been a happy person, and I’ve been so blessed with and amazing family and friends,” she told cohost Erin Andrews. “But I don’t know, I went through a hard time, so feeling like me again, it means the world honestly.”

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays on ABC at 8 p.m ET.

Store Comments In Forum

by @ Forum Integration - Articles

With IP.Content articles and custom databases you can mirror a topic to the forums when a new article or database record is submitted. In doing so, IP.Content can also utilize that automatically-generated topic as the comment "storage" for the article or record. When a comment is submitted to the article, the comment is actually stored as a reply to the topic. Similarly, replies made directly to the topic in the forum also show up as comments for the record.

This functionality can be enabled at a per-database and per-category level. You can specify separate forums for each category in your article section, for instance, or you can turn off forum commenting for a specific category, while enabling it for all others.

A few additional configuration options, such as allowing you to automatically remove the topic when the record is removed, and specifying a prefix and/or suffix for the topic title so that your users can more easily identify that such topics were stemmed from the articles section help round out the feature, giving you better control over how these automatically posted topics are handled.

The forum cross-posting capabilities allow the administrator to better tie in articles with the forums, giving you better opportunities to expose your content to a wider audience. Additionally, forum management of comments provides for easier maintenance and stronger managerial options of the comments, utilizing IP.Board's powerful, proven feature set.

Nate Berkus Shares How His Entertaining Style Has Changed Since Welcoming Daughter Poppy

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Nate Berkus is the expert on all things party planning. But since becoming a father to one-year-old daughter, Poppy, the designer’s go-to entertaining style has had a few changes.

“We entertain around her nap schedule now,” Berkus, artistic advisor for LG Studio, told PEOPLE at a breakfast on June 8, which celebrated the sleek line of high-end appliances he helped design.

RELATED: WATCH: Jessie James Decker Gives a Tour of Her Lovely Florida Beach House

But when Poppy isn’t snoozing, Berkus, 44, and husband Jeremiah Brent, 31, keep her busy with poolside play dates that are a far cry from a formal outdoor gathering.

“Our home is now filled with blow up toys from Target in the pool as opposed to margaritas,” Berkus said.

And the menu planning is even simpler.

“We throw food on the barbecue, we’ve actually even had a taco truck come once,” Berkus said. “We do put out snacks for the little ones, and they sit and throw them in the pool.”

Media Management

by @ Miscellaneous - Articles

The media module in the IP.Content ACP section allows you to quickly and easily manage multimedia files you may need to use with IP.Content. While you can certainly upload your files through FTP, or link to offsite files, you may find it easier to upload the files using the media section of the ACP, and then copy the links for use within pages, templates, and blocks. Media files uploaded through the IP.Content Media Manager are also easily inserted using the Template Tag helper window available when editing pages, blocks and templates with just a single click.

From within the media module, you can create folders, upload files, move files and folders, rename files and folders, and delete files and folders. When viewing a listing of files you will see a preview (if the file can be previewed), and selecting a file will present some other pertinent details. You can also right click on the file and use your browser's "Copy Link" option to quickly get the link to the file.

This tool can be a timesaver when you simply need to upload an image quickly for use within a page, block or template. The media folder is defined in the media_path.php file in your forum root directory, giving you the freedom to move and organize your paths as needed.

Navigation Menu

by @ Miscellaneous - Articles

IP.Content 2.3 includes a new feature designed to help you build your forums and website out the way you want to: control over your primary navigational menu.

The primary navigation menu is the the "tab" bar across the top of the page that includes links to each major section of your site. IP.Board builds this automatically based on the applications you have installed, but when you use IP.Content, you will likely find yourself creating new pages that you wish you could quickly link to in that same bar. It is possible to edit your skin templates manually to accomplish this, but this presents a few problems:

  • Your template edits may need to be reverted when upgrading in the future in order to inherit updates in the skin in future releases.
  • You will have to determine the logic necessary to show the tab as "lit up" when someone is viewing that page (and to ensure other tabs do not appear to be lit up).
  • It is inconvenient repeating this process each time a new page is created.
This is no longer a problem with IP.Content 2.3. You can now visit the "Navigation Menu" page available under the Settings module in the IP.Content ACP area and build tabs through an easy to use interface. You can control what order your tabs display in, and even put them before or in between default application tabs. You can control almost every aspect of the tab from the title, the textual tooltip, any additional non-default attributes (for instance, including a javascript click handler that will log the click in an analytics program) and more. You can even create submenus that will display on click or on hover, including many links underneath one tab.

You can also modify many aspects of your default application tabs as well, going beyond what IP.Board offers by default. For instance, using this tool you can add additional attributes to your application tabs, change the title, and modify the textual tooltip shown when a user hovers over the tab.

The best part about this new feature - IP.Content automatically figures out which tab to light up without any extra work on your part!

We hope this new feature in IP.Content 2.3 helps you better control your site the way you want it to be.

Everything We Know About Jack's Death on This Is Us

by Michele Corriston @ PEOPLE.com

Spoiler alert: Our favorite TV dad, Jack Pearson, likely died in a fire, based on the shocking ending to the This Is Us season 2 premiere.

After Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) end their separation and decide to deal with his alcoholism together, the episode cuts to her driving up to a burnt house with bags of his possessions as firefighters surround the scene.

At PEOPLE and EW’s screening and Q&A, the cast alluded to more hints about Jack’s passing, specifically in the scene where teenage kids Kate and Randall hear the tragic news.

“That’s just a piece of the puzzle,” Moore told PEOPLE.

The clues? Kate holding a stuffed dog, Randall with a red-headed girlfriend by his side, and Kevin nursing a broken leg leading up to the big monumental event.  Rebecca is also wearing a Steeler’s jersey, representing her husband’s favorite football team.

Don’t miss People and EW’s This Is Us LIVE viewing party! Go to People.com and EW.com for exclusive access to the This Is Us season 2 red carpet premiere party – with all the scoop from your favorite cast members. Then, join our editors as they bring you expert insight and can’t-miss social buzz during the premiere episode of the hit NBC drama. “I’m glad we’ve revealed a little bit to everyone,” Ventimiglia said. “I know people have been asking questions, and I stay silent, because there’s so much I can’t reveal, but I’m glad they know at least a bit.” Added creator Dan Fogelman said during the panel, “This was always the plan. We talked about the fire and what happened to Jack.” This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC. Reporting by PATRICK GOMEZ and BRIANNE TRACY

Template Variables Help

by @ Miscellaneous - Articles

When you edit content in IP.Content, whether it be blocks, templates or pages, there are many built in tags that you will need to or want to utilize in order to generate the content appropriately. Blocks have variables containing data that may be of use to your users. Page templates have variables that perform important functions, such as inserting the page title or marking where the page content should be displayed. It is nearly impossible to simply remember every variable that can be utilized in your pages and templates.

IP.Content features a template tag help panel that you can use to alleviate this problem. The panel can be minimized if you don't need it (and your preference is remembered so you won't have to minimize it each time you load a new template to edit). The panel is tabbed, providing you with various tag options based on the specific content you are editing. Database templates will show you the database tags you will need to use, while blocks will show you the variables being passed into the block template. You are able navigate some of the tabs when necessary in order to better determine the appropriate variables for the specific area you are editing.

A small icon is shown next to each tag, and clicking this icon will insert it into your templates automatically wherever the cursor is blinking. You need not manually copy and paste the tag - simply click to insert!

Some tags will have additional information or perhaps a relevant example of the data it represents. These tags will have an arrow indicator next to them to let you know that you can click on the arrow to view further details about that specific tag.

This panel is always available and dynamically adjusts to the type of content you are editing. It is but one small feature available in IP.Content designed to help you build your site the way you want, as efficiently as possible.

Steven Tyler ‘Seeking Immediate Care’ as Aerosmith Cancels Last Four Shows of South American Tour

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Steven Tyler is “seeking immediate care” after his doctors advised him that he could not continue to travel and perform, leading Aerosmith to cancel the last four shows of their South American tour.

The singer, 69, shared a statement on his Twitter account Tuesday, apologizing to fans and writing, “I’ve let you down.”

In the statement, Tyler “is expected to make a full recovery. With proper rest and treatment he will be back on his feet soon rocking the world.”

The rock star also included his own comments in the statement, writing, “To everybody in South America… Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico… I’m very sorry and feel like I’ve let you down…. I won’t be able to continue the last four shows of this tour. I flew back to the US on doctor’s orders last night after the show in Sao Paulo.”

“I am not in a life threatening condition, but I need to deal with this right away, and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain my future performances,” he continued. “I promise I’ll be back… unfortunately, health does not wait and it’s something even I can’t schedule around our shows… As they say, ‘We humans make plans, and God laughs…..'”

Last summer, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry collapsed onstage in New York during a performance with the Hollywood Vampires, which includes Johnny Depp.

The Truth Behind May Contain Ingredient Lists

by Tashina Combs @ Logical Harmony

One of the most common questions that I get is asking what the May Contain Ingredient Lists on products mean. I get at least a handful of emails each week from confused readers who don’t understand why a product that claims to be vegan has “may contain carmine” or “may contain beeswax” listed on the packaging. Does this mean the product isn’t vegan? Does it contain carmine, beeswax, or other ingredients? This is something I have talked to many brands about. In this post, I share the three common reasons why brands put May Contain Ingredient Lists on their packaging. This is the most recent update of a post I originally published on August 19, 2015. What do may contain ingredient lists mean? Often times after a list of ingredients, you will see “may contain” followed by another list of various ingredients. This is very common on the packaging for cosmetics. Especially for products that contain a variety of shades. There are a few different things that may contain ingredient lists mean, and those will be explained in this post. 1. The brand wants to use one ingredient list for all shades of a product, even if not all of the shades […]

Template Management

by @ Templates - Articles

In the IP.Content ACP, you will notice that there are 3 separate template sections of the ACP:

  • Block Templates
  • Page Templates
  • Database Templates
  • Article Templates
Within each templates section, you can create containers to group your templates into logical groupings. For instance, you may wish to create a grouping for each database you create, and then place the database templates appropriately into the container representing the database itself. Or you may wish to create multiple front page templates, and group them all together in the article templates area. You can use containers for whatever purposes you may have, or not at all: it's up to you!

Templates can be reordered by dragging and dropping the rows up and down, and they can be moved from one container to another via drag n drop as well.

Certain meta data about the templates are stored when you create new database or article templates, allowing IP.Content to tailor other areas of the ACP to help you out. For example, the software stores the template type when you create a new template. This allows us to show only "category listing" templates in the "category listing template" selection dropdowns. Similarly, the template tag help panel can automatically know which template type you are editing without you having to specify.

Properly making use of templates can help you push out pages on your site in a uniform manner quickly and easily, and without having to "reinvent the wheel" each time a new page is ready to be published.

Store Comments In Forum

by @ Articles - Articles

With IP.Content articles and custom databases you can mirror a topic to the forums when a new article or database record is submitted. In doing so, IP.Content can also utilize that automatically-generated topic as the comment "storage" for the article or record. When a comment is submitted to the article, the comment is actually stored as a reply to the topic. Similarly, replies made directly to the topic in the forum also show up as comments for the record.

This functionality can be enabled at a per-database and per-category level. You can specify separate forums for each category in your article section, for instance, or you can turn off forum commenting for a specific category, while enabling it for all others.

A few additional configuration options, such as allowing you to automatically remove the topic when the record is removed, and specifying a prefix and/or suffix for the topic title so that your users can more easily identify that such topics were stemmed from the articles section help round out the feature, giving you better control over how these automatically posted topics are handled.

The forum cross-posting capabilities allow the administrator to better tie in articles with the forums, giving you better opportunities to expose your content to a wider audience. Additionally, forum management of comments provides for easier maintenance and stronger managerial options of the comments, utilizing IP.Board's powerful, proven feature set.

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

RELATED: Leonardo DiCaprio Eating Girl Scout Cookies at the Oscars Is the Internet’s Best New Meme

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

What Is A Frontpage?

by @ Articles - Articles

IP.Content 2.0 uses the term "frontpage" to refer to both the homepage of the Articles module, and the landing page of each individual category. We have introduced this new navigational structure to better allow you to showcase content, while presenting it in a standardized format that your users will be able to understand and jump into without assistance.

Firstly, you will now be able to define "frontpage" templates in the ACP for the Articles module. IP.Content will ship with 3 defaults:

  • 1x2x2 Layout
    This layout will display articles in a traditional "news" style layout.
  • Blog format
    This format will display articles in a blog-style format.
  • Single column
    This layout will force articles to display in a single column, one per row.
You can use one or more of these frontpage layouts, or you can create your own. Experiment with displaying articles in different formats on your homepage to determine which layout your users like best.

Articles must be set to "Show on front page" in order for them to display on the homepage frontpage.

In addition to the homepage frontpage, each category has it's own frontpage. The category frontpage functions identically to the homepage frontpage, except for two important factors:
  • Only records from within that category (and it's subcategories) will be displayed
  • The "Show on front page" setting is not honored for the category frontpage
You will be able to easily review and manage the articles set to display on the frontpage from a new section of the ACP labeled "Frontpage Manager". We feel that this new area of the articles section will help showcase important articles and increase user interaction with your articles section.
