Daniel Kaluuya looked pretty dapper at the Oscars, huh?

The star, up for Best Lead Actor for his role in Jordan Peele's "Get Out," was dressed to impress. And he certainly succeeded.


Like most other red carpet walkers, Kaluuya was wearing makeup (yes, men at award shows often do)  so he could  shine bright like a diamond — or rather, avoid doing so under the cameras' bright lights.

And who better to help him achieve that perfect glow than Rihanna?

The day after the Oscars, Rihanna's blockbuster beauty line, Fenty Beauty, tweeted that the Oscar nominee used its products to prep for the big night.

"Oscars ready with Daniel Kaluuya," the brand wrote, specifying which foundation the actor used and the artist behind his look, Amber Amos.

Fans were loving it.

Kaluuya's red carpet look highlighted another big win for the brand — and inclusivity in the beauty industry.

Fenty offers items like lipsticks, primers, and foundations in a wide variety of tones for people of every shade — a feature worth celebrating in an industry that often overlooks customers with darker skin.

It turns out inclusivity makes for good business, too. Rihanna's company skyrocketed to overnight success after it launched last September and is projected to surpass other prominent brands in revenue in its first year in the marketplace.

"Fenty Beauty was created for everyone; for women of all shades, personalities, attitudes, cultures, and races," Rihanna said of her line. "I wanted everyone to feel included. That’s the real reason I made this line."

Let's face it: Kaluuya could slay any red carpet. But he's even more radiant boosting a brand that makes everyone feel like a star.

True

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

Yuri has a very important message for his co-workers.

While every person with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is different, there are some common communication traits that everyone should understand. Many with ASD process language literally and have a hard time understanding body language, social cues, exaggeration and cultural cues.

This can lead to misunderstandings that result in people with ASD appearing to be rude when it wasn't their intent. If more neurotypical people (those without ASD) better understood these communication differences, it’d be much easier for everyone to get along.

A perfect example of this problem and how to fix it was shared by Yuri, a transmasc person who goes by he/they, who posts on TikTok about having ADHD and ASD. In a post that has more than 2.3 million views, Yuri claims he was “booked for a disciplinary meeting for being a bad communicator.”

True

The energy in a hospital can sometimes feel overwhelming, whether you’re experiencing it as a patient, visitor or employee. However, there are a few one-of-a-kind individuals like Elaine Ahn, an operating room registered nurse in Diamond Bar, California, who thrive under this type of constant pressure.

Coming into land… what does this joystick do?

Being a pilot is arguably one of the most demanding jobs in the world. People trust you with their lives and there is virtually zero margin for error. Yet professional pilots do it with seeming ease. If you have ever had the privilege of being in a cockpit while someone’s flying, you'll know they make it appear like it’s a task anyone with any amount of video game knowledge can do. Of course, it’s not that simple. Flying a plane takes up to a year of hands-on training depending on the type of aircraft you’d like to fly and the training program you attend.

Learning to fly a plane is almost always a voluntary decision, except in this one truly noteworthy instance.

Emily Calandrelli was stopped by TSA agents when she tried to bring her ice packs for pumped milk through airport security.

Traveling without your baby for the first time can be tough. And if you're breastfeeding, it can be even tougher, as you have to pump milk every few hours to keep your body producing enough, to avoid an enormous amount of discomfort and to prevent risk of infection.

But for Emily Calandrelli, taking a recent work trip away from her 10-week-old son was far more challenging than it needed to be.

Calandrelli is a mom of two, an aerospace engineer and the host of the Netflix kids' science show "Emily's Wonder Lab." She was recently taking her first work trip since welcoming her second child, which included a five-hour flight from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. Calandrelli is breastfeeding her son and had planned to pump just before boarding the plane. She brought ice packs to keep the milk from spoiling during the flight, but when she tried to go through airport security, the TSA agents refused to let her take some of her supplies.
