prevalent among the Sumerians, Egyptians, Syrians, Babylonians, Persians, and Greeks.
Later, Elizabeth I with red mercuric sulfide.
For years, rouge
only promiscuous women
true societal acceptance
By 1915 push up tubes were available, and the first claims of “indelibility” were made.

Raw Materials
wax, oil, alcohol, and pigment.
beeswax, candelilla wax, or the more expensive camauba. Wax enables the mixture to be formed into the easily recognized shape of the cosmetic. Fragrance and pigment are also added, as are preservatives and antioxidants, which prevent lipstick from becoming rancid.

Maybe it (student “absenteeism”) is an indication that the students are not finding being measured by standardized testing to be an effective method of “teaching”?
Maybe if the focus was less on sports/preparing poor students for military service?
Maybe if the schedule could be less complicated?
Maybe If we could drop off our kids without them being nearly run over in car line?
Maybe if the teachers could have fewer students in the classrooms?
Maybe if the teachers were allowed to teach instead of regurgitating common core bullshit? 
Maybe get away from “punishment” models?

Architecture Self-regulates

There is no reason to have state architecture boards. Architecture is a self-regulating practice.

One practices architecture. If one fails to adequately maintain the practice, one gets sued, or fails to get repeat clients, the clients talk to one another at dinner parties, the failed building is seen by others…the practice self-regulates.

If the state architecture boards were disbanded today, no one would notice.

Buildings would still happen. Lawsuits would still happen.

Architecture boards serve no purpose.
