Sephora is officially rolling out their new Disney Jasmine Collection. Sephora has been behind Disney collections before such the Cinderella Collection and the new Urban Decay Wizard of Oz makeup and they are not about to give up now. Just in time for spring and summer make your own magic with Disney’s Jasmine Collection by Sephora. Each product has been created with the modern Princess in mind. Discover eyeshadow palettes with exotic shades, an intoxicating fragrant elixir, and an eyeliner set that will give you the sultry gaze of a Princess. With rich colors and dramatic detailing, each piece is as collectible and covetable as a palace gem.
Thoughtfully inspired by the Disney animation, Aladdin, each eyeshadow shade from the Storylook Palette and the Small Eyeshadow Palette were inspired directly from the film’s original colors. A few of our favorites include the shade “Blue Oasis”, a light turquoise just like Jasmine’s outfit. “Arabian Sunset” is a bright shimmering coral, as exotic as a sunset over Jasmine’s palace. “Wonder by Wonder” is a glittery violet as enchanting as the night sky during Jasmine and Aladdin’s magic carpet ride.
What was supposed to be a dream trip to Walt Disney World turned into a nightmare for 3-year old Lucy Forck and her family at St. Louis’ Lambert Field Airport.
3-year old Lucy, who is in a wheelchair because she suffers from spina-bifida, was nearly subjected to an aggressive TSA pat-down at the airport. The incident happened earlier this month as the Forck family was departing to Walt Disney World. A TSA agent pulled the child aside after an alarm went off.
A video of the incident showing the crying child can be see on The Washington Times website.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, though he did not meet his alleged victims while working for Disney, 20-year old Matthew Sepik was arrested earlier this week for molesting children under the age of 12.
Sepik is a Disney employee, who is now suspended without pay, and according to his arrest report the sexual abuse is believed to have started in early2007 when Sepik was just 14. The report also alleges that Sepik molested both a boy and a girl and they were both younger than 12 when the abuse started. The male has chosen not to press charges and participate in the investigation, but the female did agree to cooperate with police.
Sepik has admitted to molesting the girl, after a “controlled” call between him and the female abuse victim was monitored by investigators. On this call Sepik apologized for “inappropriate stuff” that had happened with them and said he did the “same stuff” with the male victim.
Sepik is currently in the Orange County Jail after being arrested on February 14th.

Just in time to celebrate National Engineers Week,dozens of students from University High School in Orlando teamed with IBM to unveil IBM THINK, a new interactive experience in INNOVENTIONS West at Epcot. As part of the opening, the group was among the first to explore the exhibit and try its mobile app and free STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) lesson plans.
“The IBM THINK experience, the THINK app and lesson plans provide an engaging way to enable students to learn STEM concepts in a real-world context,” said Danielle Miller, Astronomy and Physical Science Teacher at University High School. “THINK has made my students see the process of innovation in a way they never have before. It has helped my students become scientists.”
Spanning over 6,600 square feet, The THINK experience presented by IBM showcases how technology makes the world work better by transforming the way we live and work. Highlights include a 40-foot dynamic “gesture wall” that reveals the ebb and flow of data in our daily lives through colorful visualizations; a 12-minute inspirational film about building a better future and a self-guided interactive tour featuring 20 seven-foot touchscreens that encourage discovery.
The new exhibit is based on IBM’s 2011 THINK pop-up exhibit at New York’s Lincoln Center, which was developed for the company’s Centennial.
After guests experience the exhibit, they can continue their THINK experience through free mobile apps and STEM lesson plans for grades 5-12, available online at Teachers TryScience.
