Why I Cast Facially-Different Actors in My Movie ‘Happy Face’

Happy Face is not an advocacy film. Happy Face is an imperfect film about imperfect people in an imperfect world.

This film is above all a personal story through which I sought catharsis—a way to free myself from the guilt of having been ashamed of my own mother when, sick with cancer, she lost her “beauty.”

Happy Face is also the first part of my “Cancer Trilogy”—a project of three feature-length fictional/autobiographical films, based on the fears and fantasies resulting from my experiences with this disease. The film recounts the events surrounding my mother’s death when I was a young man and revolves around the theme evoked by the words “…animate your mind instead of your body and you will be immensely rich.” Words she wrote to me just before she died as advice for life.

In the story, Stan, a chimeric 19-year-old boy, is torn between

Unused makeup attracts bacteria. Here’s what to toss or clean

When one of Noëlle Sherber’s patients came to see her several months ago, the Washington, D.C., dermatologist noticed that the woman had an eye infection. It was a small sty and easily treatable, but Sherber still wanted to know what caused it.

Sherber learned that the patient, who had been at home since mid-March, had recently put on a full face of makeup using products that largely had sat untouched for months after she, like many others, scaled back her usual beauty routine during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I asked, ‘How old is your mascara? Your eyeliner?’ ” said Sherber, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and co-founder of Sherber and Rad. The woman, Sherber noted, had not purchased new cosmetics in a while and seemed to think that because she was not using her eye makeup often that it “extended the life span of the product.”

Allergic reactions to the coronavirus vaccine are rare and outweighed by the benefit of protection, CDC finds

Given the small risk of severe allergic reaction and its treatable nature, the risk of catching the coronavirus and becoming severely ill or dying far outweighs that of a potential allergic reaction, CDC officials said.

The virus is killing roughly 2,670 people every day — an average that continues to rise, according to statistics compiled by The Washington Post.

“The known and potential benefits outweigh the known and potential risk of getting vaccine,” Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said in a news briefing. Messonnier said CDC officials are worried about people being reluctant to be vaccinated — including health-care workers who were in the first-priority group for vaccinations.

Messonnier highlighted the rigorous approval process the vaccines underwent to be proved safe and effective. The two authorized vaccines — from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna — are “very safe” and severe allergic reactions are “still

‘Look for a new roommate’

A woman is feuding with her roommate over apartment decorations. 

She went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to share a recent argument. When the roommate’s parents were visiting, the roommate asked for a major favor. 

“My roommate said that her parents were gonna come down for the holidays,” the user wrote. “I was completely okay with that, I was going to my parents for the holidays so I didn’t mind at all. Until she told me I had to take the decorations down in my room. I have pride flags, some provocative posters, witchy stuff, among other things in my room. I didn’t see why and she said it was because her parents are very conservative. I told her that it was my room, I will keep my door closed and why would her parents be in my room anyway?”

The roommate insisted that her
