Nationwide cosmetics giveaway Tuesday Why do cosmetics never go on sale? It s a question that nine women took to federal court in California in 1998. Their suit accused manufacturers of setting a suggested retail price in their contracts with department stores, while prohibiting discounts. In return, cosmetics companies guaranteed a 40 percent margin on the products as well as paying salaries of salespeople and supplying store displays. More than a decade later, consumers everywhere can benefit from the settlement of the class action lawsuit. Starting Tuesday, department stores nationwide will be giving away cosmetics worth $175 million. The sale lasts a week on a first come, first served basis, but Bloomingdale s in Bloomington expects the freebies to be gone within a day or a day and a half. Anyone who purchased cosmetics between May 1994 and July 2003 is eligible to take part. Consumers must sign a form declaring that they purchased products during that period. More than 14 department stores will be participating in the giveaway, including Bloomingdale s, Dillard s, Herberger s, Macy s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Younkers. The list of freebies includes perfume by Boucheron, Christian Dior and Guerlin, body lotion by Clarins, Chanel, Vera Wang and Calvin Klein, shower gel by Sarah Jessica Parker, Lancome, Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren, Moncler 2012 Women 0029 Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder, Moisture Surge by Clinique and mascara by Lancome. Bloomingdale s plans to set up six tables with signs above each to indicate the products available Moncler Jacket Sale at that desk. The Mall of America store received as few as 20 of some products and more than 100 of others. Supplies will vary among department stores, with stores distributing goods that they ordinarily sell. Macy s spokeswoman Sharon Bateman indicated that the supplies were created specifically for the giveaway, not taken from the stores regular inventory. Bloomingdale s expects supplies Moncler Made In Romania of Estee Lauder, Clinique and Lancome to go first.

NC HEAT on moving Wake County schools forward The blog is devoted to discussing and answering questions about the major issues facing the Wake County school system. How will the new student assignment plan balance diversity, stability, proximity and stability? How will Jim Merrill replace Tony Tata as the new superintendent of the state largest district? How will voters react to a $810 million school construction bond referendum on Oct. 8 ballot? How will this fall school board elections impact the future of the district? is maintained by The News Observer Wake schools reporter, T. Keung Hui. While Keung posts information and analysis on the issues, keep us posted on your suggestions, questions, tips and what you doing to cope with the changes in Wake schools. HEAT says the recent election results show that "the people of Wake County spoke loud and clear that the political nature of the Wake County Board of Education would no longer be tolerated."In a press release Monday, the liberal youth advocacy group says that to move Wake County forward the new school board majority should work "to create schools that are diverse in nature and allow for all students to learn and grow from such diversity."The group says "the following actions are essential to creating equitable education for all students:The Wake County Board of Education must take a proactive role in efforts to dismantle the school to prison pipeline. There Moncler Jas are clear discrepancies with the handling of discipline matters from school to school. We cannot expect our education system to be successful if injustice exists in matters of student discipline.It is imperative that the new Board actively works together toward eliminating the graduation gaps seen between different races.The Board should request appropriate funding from the county commissioners. When our schools leaders refuse to ask for increased funding in order to obtain more resources in the classrooms, they are disregarding the needs of the very students they were elected to represent."If most of your proximate MSs are traditional there should be no problem getting a seat in one. If you are within 1 1/2 miles you already have priority over others.It doesn appear the same is true for YR students. The chance to move up to a YR middle school are far more limited in many areas. For my node we can choose from 7 ES 2 are YR. We have 4 middle schools, only one is YR. It is more than 10 miles from my house, many families in my area are in the same boat. So wouldn that put kids in my node behind siblings, feeder pattern (only one of the YR ESs feeds into that YR middle, and it not the one the kids in my neighborhood currently attend) then children within 1 and 1/2 miles, etc.I confirm that I spoke to the student assignment department and if you are currently in 5th or 8th grade and your "feeder" school for next year isn on your choice list you will NOT receive a bus. My daughter is in the same position at another school. We left MYR and now we have a feeder assignment middle school much further from home with no transportation. The student assignment department said that if you need an assignment with a bus you must apply during the Choice Application process and they will guarantee you a seat with a bus at one of the schools from your choice list. Whether you get your first, second or third choice depends on where they have available seats. In my case I only have two choices, one YR and one traditional and I was told I have no guarantee of a traditional calendar seat that I need to keep my children on the same school calendar.I definitely agree that this issue hasn been publicized. I contacted both the student assignment department as well as my school board representative and I encourage others to do the same.I have contacted Student Assignment and my board rep. I guess I was hoping the lack of transportation was an oversight and not the design of the plan. This also has implications for grandfathering decisions for younger siblings. Sadly, I don think this is widely or completely understood.I been begging the student assignment department as well the the board to review their data for current 5th and 8th graders and look for these outliers and address then now instead of hoping that the parents realize that they need to act. I find it disappointing that the choice priorities include a priority for YR students who apply to continue at a YR middle school that isn their feeder but there no equivalent priority for traditional calendar elementary students to have the same priority for a proximate traditional calendar seat that isn their current feeder.See jevedi post. I was told the same thing. Essentially, I was told that it doesn matter how a student ended up in their current school (base assignment, calendar option, NCLB opt out, etc.). Regardless of how the student got there, they will automatically follow the feeder pattern. However, as they move to the next level (ES to MS for example), if that feeder school is not in their list of choices, they do not receive transportation. I did also ask about the next step as well. If the family then moves to an address that does have that school in the choice list, they then would get transportation.It sounds like there may be a significant number of families impacted by this aspect of the plan and not just next year, but at whichever year their child ages out of their current school.The problem is that the choice lists were not revealed to the public until after the vote on the plan. Even now that the lists have been disclosed, all that parents keep hearing is that you can stay in your current school/feeder pattern if you want. What they aren t widely publicizing is that transportation is not guaranteed. People need to know so they can make decisions. Relying on ad hoc conversations on a blog or one on one conversations with Student Assignment is not a good strategy for communicating these critical details.I have 4 T ES choices and 2 YR ES choices. Of the 4 T, 3 feed MS R and 1 feeds MS A1. Of the 2 YR, one feeds MS A2 and one feeds MS C. The 3 ESs that feed MS R + the YR ES option that feeds MS A2, feed into HS R. The one T ES that feeds MS A1, feeds to HS A. The YR ES that feeds into MS C, feeds into HS C. (R, A and C stand for the towns.) Good thing a 16 zone/4 or 5 region concept was halted because clearly this method is more intuitive ; )Some of the downtown areas get really interesting. There one street where if you live in the 300 block, depending on which ES you end up in, you feed to Carnage (Enloe), Daniels (Broughton), Salem or Apex (both Apex). If you live in the 600 block, depending on which ES you end up in, you feed to Ligon or Carnage (both Enloe), Daniels (Broughton), West Cary or Reedy Creek (both Cary HS), or Dillard or Lufkin Rd (both Athens).Same for our neighborhood. MS and HS we have been going to for 15 years is now no longer part of our choice. But I take comfort in knowing when my daughter goes from 8th grade to HS we will not have a "forced reassignment". I have not told her that she will not be going to the same HS as some of her neighborhood best friends that are 1 year older and would be grandfathered. So even though the bus will be coming through the neighborhood to take her friends to Millbrook, she will be on the bus to Sanderson.I am sorry to hear of your daughter situation. I know it is difficult. We went through a reassignment in the middle of ES. Unfortunately, Moncler Mens Classic T-Shirt With Pure Gray assignment has been a mess for some time and it seems there is going to be some messiness for those already in the system in the adjustment to the new method. I suspect some areas are more complicated than others. It sounds like there is a variety of situations in play.We are fortunate in that our current base schools ended up being our feeder pattern. I know that makes us luckier than many. However, I also know that there are many at our current school where the feeder pattern schools aren in their choices and friendship is a two way street. (I had asked the transportation question with regard to my daughter friend, not us.) However unlike your situation, our next level "base" schools weren an option for them under the old method either. Going on with all their friends wasn an option (absent transfer or moving). Monlcer Waistcoat - Women Vest Blue Now they have that option, but they are faced with deciding to follow the feeder with friends but without transportation or applying for a choice school to get transportation, but splitting from friends. So for my daughter friend, it was "congrats now you don have to move to keep her with friends, but sorry you are going to have to get her to school yourselves unless you move afterall."
