The Brief: Obama Just Made Flu Season a Lot Easier

Obama Says Get Well Soon

While many of us were soaking up the last summer rays or bingeing on Netflix, Obama decided to get some work done over the long weekend. He signed an executive order extending paid sick leave to an additional 300,000 federal workers. This means workers can earn up to seven sick days per year, depending on how many hours they work, according to a release from the White House. The changes will go into effect in 2017. Find out more about Obama’s plan here. [Related: 9 Polite Ways to Turn Down Extra Work]

Run to the Mall Now

You may be shopped out after all those Labor Day sales, but you’re going to want to run back when you see The Limited’s latest line. For its “The New Look of Leadership” campaign, aimed at professional women, the retailer is using 60 diverse female leaders in business, education, government, healthcare, technology, and entertainment—including Levo’s own Chief Leadership Officer Tiffany Dufu (watch out, Gigi Hadid!). Other notable ladies in the campaign include Levo friend Gabrielle Bernstein, motivational speaker, life coach, and author; and Natalia Oberti Noguera, founder of Pipeline Angels and Pipeline Fellowship. “I’m on the planet to advance women and girls, so saying yes to The Limited was a no brainer,” Dufu said in a statement. “According to Marian Wright Edelman you can’t be what you can’t see. I’m thrilled to help show women that ‘The New Look of Leadership’ is in the mirror. It’s time for us to redefine and celebrate new models of success.” With the campaign, The Limited will release two new collections this month aimed at working women: The Luxe Collection and the more relaxed Lounge Collection. We’ll take one of everything, please! [Related: 5 Ways You Can Support Girls Education Today, International Literacy Day]

Sister, Sister

Many siblings are competitive, but imagine facing off against your sister or brother in a professional sporting event. Well, that’s exactly what Venus and Serena Williams will do tonight at the U.S. Open semi-finals. They have faced off many times before (26 times, actually), but it still never gets any easier because of the emotions involved. And also, for anyone who has a sibling, they usually know quite a lot about you, both good and bad. “I’m playing the best player in the tournament. She knows how to play, how to win. She knows all my weaknesses,” Serena, who has a record-breaking Grand Slam title on the line, told The New York Times. This is very similar to the time it got heated between my sister and I during a game of Saved by the Bell trivia, so I totally get it. But still, it will be great to see these tremendous women play an amazing match. [Related: Venus Williams Is Officially a College Graduate]
