Tyson Foods <TSN.N> said on Tuesday it plans in January to replace more than a dozen federal inspectors at a large Kansas beef plant with company employees, after getting a U.S. government waiver. Tyson said the changes would improve food safety and efficiency, though some activists worried they could result in less oversight. The country's highest-selling meat supplier asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in March 2019 for a waiver from inspection requirements at its plant in Holcomb, Kansas.

(Bloomberg) -- Airbnb Inc. has chosen to list its shares on the Nasdaq Global Select Market, its biggest initial public offering since Facebook Inc. in 2012.The home-rental company didn’t disclose any further details of its listing plans in a statement Tuesday.Nasdaq has a reputation for technology-focused stocks such as software and biotechnology, including high-profile IPOs such as those for Lyft Inc. and Zoom Video Communications Inc. Yet, since the fallout surrounding Facebook’s difficult debut, it has frequently lost the competition for mega IPOs to the New York Stock Exchange, including Uber’s $8.1 billion listing last year and Snowflake Inc.’s $3.86 billion offering.A representative for Airbnb declined to comment beyond the statement.Airbnb said in August that it had filed confidentially with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for an IPO. The company will seek to raise as much as $3 billion in an IPO before the end of the year, people familiar with the matter have said.At that price, Airbnb’s offering would be the third-biggest on Nasdaq, topped only by Facebook Inc.’s $16 billion IPO in 2012 and Mondelez International Inc.’s $8.68 billion listing in 2001. By comparison, the New York Stock Exchange has been the venue for at least 23 IPOs exceeding $3 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Valuation FluxAirbnb was valued at $18 billion in April when it raised $2 billion in debt from investors at the depth of the pandemic. That was a significant drop from its earlier peak valuation of $31 billion in a 2017 fundraising round.San Francisco-based Airbnb told shareholders in an email that it was splitting its privately held shares this week, a move that lowers its stock price per share, Bloomberg reported. The value of the shares has climbed 10.4% from its last valuation listed in compensation reports to the Internal Revenue Service, according to the email. A person familiar with the matter said the increase was from the end of the second quarter.After the split, the company’s common shares were valued at $34.88 apiece as of Sept. 30, according to the email. That value is calculated for tax purposes related to employee compensation.At that price, the company would be valued at about $22 billion, according to people familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because the matter wasn’t public. This valuation, dated Sept. 30, reflects the estimated value of the common shares that employees hold. It is a different metric than the often higher valuation that venture capitalists pay for preferred stock.Yet the increase in vacation for employee stock demonstrates that Airbnb’s business has seen a rebound since the spring plunge caused by the coronavirus.Airbnb bounced back from the pandemic more quickly than it expected, as people sought long-term, rural rentals to escape hot spots and take advantage of work-from-home opportunities. The company began seeing signs of recovery in June, with bookings down only 30% from the same month in 2019, people familiar with the matter have said. That compared with a 70% decline in May from a year earlier.(Updates with more details on how the valuation is calculated in the 10th paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

For those with acne-prone skin, breakouts are often only part of the equation — the residual hyperpigmentation that follows, particularly for those with Black and brown skin, can feel like a lingering reminder that you’re not totally “in the clear.” And while the world has mostly moved past lightening creams with concentrated bleaching properties (which can result in the discoloration of surrounding areas, not to mention potentially serious adverse long-term effects), many are still seeking out the most effective way to reduce these darkened spots. This is especially true with today’s increased use of face masks — because, #maskne is REAL. But a bit of good news: While it’s commonly thought that Black skin is more prone to acne scars, that is simply not the case. “Many of my Black clients come in complaining of ‘acne scarring,’” says Dr. Elyse Love, a New York City board-certified dermatologist who specializes in Black skin. “But when we think of scars, we think of them being permanent, so I reeducate my patients to understand that these are not scars. What they’re seeing is a result of hyperpigmentation, which is more easily treatable.” Luckily, Dr. Love says that acne, maskne, and hyperpigmentation don’t have to be permanent nuisances, and with winter around the corner, your skin could be seeing some relief. In partnership with Neutrogena, we asked Dr. Love to explain the keys to prevention, how to treat a sudden breakout, and the magic ingredient anyone with dark skin should have in their stash. Black skin does not have more melanocytes. Contrary to popular belief, everyone has approximately the same number of melanocytes — those protective pigment-producing skin cells. “But in darker skin tones, those melanocytes are more active,” says Dr. Love. “When there is inflammation of the skin — which often occurs with acne — the melanocytes release more pigment. That’s why dark spots arise, and the darker your skin tone, the darker the spot will probably be.” However, it does tend to be oilier, which could lead to acne. While there are many different causes of acne, certain factors can make you more prone to clogged pores and breakouts — such as having naturally oily skin. “There’s a lot of data going into actually looking at the differences between a variety of skin types, and Black skin does, in fact, tend to be oilier,” Dr. Love confirms. “That oiliness increases the chances of developing acne.” Maskne also affects dark skin differently. “The way that I think of maskne is almost like workout-induced acne,” Dr. Love says. “Consider this: All of those microbes that are in your breath are now being accumulated and bounced back to your skin. In addition, you’re also sweating underneath your mask, so all of that moisture is accumulating.” In this way, maskne is very similar to bacterial acne caused by exercise. Dr. Love notes that maskne can be worse for Black skin, because of the lingering, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. “If you have a lighter skin tone and the mask is causing these breakouts, I expect those breakouts to decrease tremendously as we transition to cooler weather,” she says, pointing to the fact that less heat means less sweat and moisture trapped under your mask, resulting in fewer breakouts. “But for darker skin, while breakouts may get better with the cooler months, you still have that hyperpigmentation that takes several weeks to months to phase out on its own.” You can prevent hyperpigmentation with a consistent skin-care regimen. “I take a more aggressive approach to acne with my clients with darker skin, because prevention is the number-one way to avoid hyperpigmentation,” Dr. Love says. She recommends incorporating active ingredients like retinoids and benzoyl peroxide into your skin-care routine, which can slow down pigment production. “It’s also important to constantly wear sunscreen in order to minimize sun exposure and its effects, which can trigger melanocytes further,” she says. Make sure you’re applying your acne-fighting products correctly. “Benzoyl peroxide is a highly effective ingredient for dealing with acne because it kills bacteria beneath the skin and protects that top layer of the skin from being susceptible to breakouts,” Dr. Love says. However, there are certain things to keep in mind before you incorporate the ingredient in your routine. “If you were to use a benzoyl peroxide product that wasn’t formulated correctly, or if you applied it too frequently, that could irritate the skin and cause hyperpigmentation,” Dr. Love says. “I would say, especially with stubborn acne, use a product formulated with 10% or less benzoyl peroxide and only use it once a day.” If you have sensitive skin, Dr. Love suggests starting out by using it a few times a week, then gradually increasing to everyday use. Our pick: Neutrogena’s Stubborn Acne AM Treatment. With a conservative amount of micronized benzoyl peroxide — 2.5%, to be exact — this leave-on treatment is safe enough to use every morning. Dermatologists love this for reducing breakouts and irritation, which ultimately prevents hyperpigmentation. Your skin won’t feel dried out or tight, and there’s no fragrance, oil, or parabens, making it ideal for sensitive skin. Dr. Love stresses the importance of using a lower percentage of benzoyl peroxide to avoid the potential bleaching of towels and clothing. “These side effects are more common with higher percentages of benzoyl peroxide, while the 2.5% is typically well tolerated, with less risk of bleaching,” she explains. (To be clear, benzoyl peroxide only comes with the risk of bleaching hair and clothes, not skin.) Use the right cleanser — & don’t forget to moisturize. Since benzoyl peroxide can make your skin sensitive and more prone to irritation, “you want to use a cleanser that doesn’t make your skin feel dry after you wash it.” Dr. Love says. “But you also want to stay away from products with high oil content so that they don’t clog the pores.” After that, be sure to layer on moisturizer — particularly in the winter. “You want to incorporate a heavier, water-based moisturizer into your routine and a product with hyaluronic acid to trap in moisture.” Use retinol to treat existing hyperpigmentation. “My favorite ingredient for post-acne pigmentation is retinol and retinoids,” says Dr. Love. “This ingredient is excellent because it helps to prevent acne breakouts, exfoliates the skin to reveal glowing skin, helps to fade dark marks, and stimulates collagen production for anti-aging effects. It really is the wonder treatment of dermatology.” Dr. Love recommends adding a retinol or retinoid, such as Neutrogena Stubborn Marks PM Acne Treatment, to your routine on a nightly or bi-nightly basis.

There’s a certain pleasure HBCU alums get when they see another HBCU grad in a TV show or film. That win for her, him, or them feels like a win for all of us, and seeing actress Javicia Leslie kick butt (and do her own stunts!) as a superhero is a gain for the culture. In the season 3 finale of R29 Unbothered’s Go Off, Sis podcast, Leslie, a proud Hampton University alumna and the first Black actor to play Batwoman in The CW’s superhero TV series Batwoman, join the hosts to talk about the magnitude of being the lead on the call sheet and how she copes with “miserable” people spewing their negative thoughts about her role (i.e. “There’s no such thing as a Black Batwoman”). For one, she’s learned to disable comments on social media and not engage with the haters, choosing instead to rise above it, because she understands the power and purpose behind her role. She goes on to describe a moment when a dad explained how his daughter saw the Batwoman casting, pointed at Leslie’s photo, and said, “Dad, that woman looks like me.” “Everything I do matters,” she says. “And it matters because there’s some little girl that’s waiting for the next episode, and she needs me to perform.” To hear more about the power of the HBCU network and how Leslie deals with negativity on social media, listen to the full episode, below.

A research team made a worrisome discovery off the Siberian coast, The Guardian reports. The scientists say they believe they are first to uncover observational evidence that frozen methane deposits in the Arctic Ocean have started to be released after determining that methane levels at the ocean's surface were four to eight times higher than expected.The deposits are considered "sleeping giants of the carbon cycle" and could theoretically expedite climate change, given that methane has a warming effect 80 times stronger than carbon dioxide over a 20 year period, The Guardian notes. But while the discovery sounds alarming, it's also been met with skepticism from some climate scientists.> This story is... unconvincing. First off it’s just two scientists (no publication), one of whom has made similar (unsupported) claims before & ignores the context that permafrost & methane have been degrading in this region since it was inundated in the early Holocene. https://t.co/EKI02cj2zT> > — Gavin Schmidt (@ClimateOfGavin) October 27, 2020> There are climate feedback mechanisms to be worried about. A supposed "Arctic Methane Bomb" isn't one of them. https://t.co/yuOtqYUIKq> > — Michael E. Mann (@MichaelEMann) October 27, 2020Gavin Schmidt, a climatologist and director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, argued there is no evidence Arctic methane had a "big effect" even in earlier periods when the region was warmer than it is now.The scientists who made the discovery, meanwhile, have acknowledged their work is preliminary, and said the scale of methane releases will not be confirmed until they return and analyze the data. Either way, "there is unlikely to be any major" climate effect "at this moment," Swedish scientist Örjan Gustafsson, told The Guardian from the research vessel. But he did maintain his stance that "the process has now been triggered."

The beloved exhibition, which began in 1960, has become one of the most endearing traditions at the Masters and is very much a family affair as golfers often have wives, girlfriends, children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews serve as caddies. "The fun and excitement of watching Masters competitors with their friends and family is what makes the Par 3 Contest such a special part of Masters week," Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley said in a news release. "We know that experience could not have been replicated without guests and patrons at Augusta National, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to bring back this signature tradition."
