Monday Nov 12th 2018

Sure, reflecting on what you're grateful for on Thanksgiving is fun and all, but the holiday can also be immensely stressful.

Camp Fire is deadliest in California history, and numbers may grow

Monday Nov 12th 2018

After transforming the once tranquil town of Paradise, California into charred automobiles and tales of horror, the Camp Fire takes its infamous spot as the deadliest wildfire in California history. 

At a multi-agency press conference Monday night, the Butte Country Sheriff's Office announced that 42 have been confirmed dead. This grim statistic surpasses the 29 Los Angelenos killed by the Griffith Park Fire in 1933. While it's unclear just how many individuals are still missing, officials said they've located 231 previously missing persons, who are now safe, and have received 1514 requests to check on or locate people. But, that large number may include multiple requests for the same person. Read more...

This short film will inspire you to keep fighting for America's soul

Monday Nov 12th 2018

Crisis can bring people together in unprecedented ways. That's the theme of Rising, a new short film directed by Game of Thrones' David Nutter and written by Lena Waithe, creator of The Chi

The film, which is the latest installment of the popular Ad Council "Love Has No Labels" PSA campaign, imagines how a massive storm and flood affects a group of neighbors who at first glance have little in common. 

A white man stares menacingly at his neighbor, an American teen from an Indian Muslim family. Two women, who are a couple, run down the block and take note of the scene. Other residents, who are people of color, watch the white neighbor's intimidation with disapproval. Then disaster strikes and everyone becomes essential to the block's collective survival. The film was created pro bono by the ad agency R/GA and is designed to make viewers remember how vital people are to each other — even when political and cultural polarization threatens to tear America apart.  Read more...

'The Cleaners' shows the terrors human content moderators face at work

Monday Nov 12th 2018

"Out of sight, out of mind" doesn't work when cleaning out the darkest corners of social media platforms. 

That's what the documentary The Cleaners, which airs Monday night on PBS, reveals about content moderators in the Philippines who are relentlessly bombarded with violent, graphic, and disturbing images and videos. Ahead of the TV release at a San Francisco screening, the filmmakers Hans Block and Moritz Riesewieck praised the subjects in the documentary for being "brave enough to talk to us."

Manila has become a de facto headquarters for content moderation for some of the biggest social media and content services like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Google, Twitter, and others. But outsourcing the harmful work doesn't eliminate the problem. Read more...

What your favorite home assistant command really says about you

Monday Nov 12th 2018

No matter what kind of home assistant or smart speaker you’re on a first name basis with, chances are you’ve reached co-dependent status with it — because no one wants to physically do things when you can yell at a piece of plastic to do it instead. Playing actual board games? It’s not 1984. Jotting down things for your to-do list? Uh, pens are practically an endangered species. Knowing things? Please, there’s the internet for that. 

Our go-to commands get us through the day, but when you really think about it, your favorite requests actually reveal a lot about your character. Here, we take a closer look at what your choice commands could be saying about you.  Read more...

Leftover season is upon us, which means that now is the time to invest in some solid Tupperware.

Lyft's rewards program will offer perks for choosing Lyft over Uber

Monday Nov 12th 2018

When you're hailing a ride, you probably flip between the Uber and Lyft apps to see which one will give you the best deal. But what if one of them offered you rewards in exchange for your loyalty?

Lyft is banking on that idea with its forthcoming rewards program. 

The company will soon let users earn points for all the money they spend in the app on Lyft rides. Once a user has earned enough points, they can redeem them for Lyft Rewards, such as a ride in a more luxurious car or discounts on future rides. Points will be tracked in the app as part of a user's profile.

Someone at Hasbro apparently thought Monopoly for Millennials was a great idea

Monday Nov 12th 2018

Someone really though a millennial version of Monopoly might be a fun idea.

The very bitter people behind the board game known for tearing apart friend groups and getting children written out of wills released an especially cursed version of the game titled Monopoly For Millennials. 

In this version of the game, players don't buy up properties — because what IRL millennial can afford to buy houses when they're too busy spending their money on avocado toast, right? Instead the game employs tired stereotypes of younger generations, as players buy "experiences" like going to the Vegan Bistro or crashing on their Friend's Couch. Skip the Boardwalk in favor of a Week-Long Meditation Retreat!  Read more...

We regret to inform you Trumpy Bear is a *real* thing you can spend money on

Monday Nov 12th 2018

Looking for something to tightly squeeze while you fear for the future of American politics? Trumpy Bear is here to help... or at least help give you nightmares. The purpose of this terrifying little creature is unclear, but the product is very real.

For those who haven't yet seen the commercial for Trumpy Bear, a Trump-themed teddy bear with an American flag blanket hidden in its back, let us fix that.

The ad resembles an amateur splicing of deleted scenes from the Twilight films, a classic, embarrassing infomercial, a class project, and an extremely low-budget campaign commercial. And there's a very good chance after watching it you'll think it's fake. But it's unfortunately not. Read more...

Powerful Stan Lee column from 1968 about racism resurfaces on Twitter

Monday Nov 12th 2018

Following the death of Marvel comics' Stan Lee, people have begun recirculating a 1968 column Lee wrote denouncing racism (something a disturbing number of politicians refuse to do to this day).

As part of his storied comics career, Lee spent almost four decades writing regular installments of  "Stan's Soapbox" on the backs of comics, in which he frequently fought for his heroes' values of tolerance and equality. 

SEE ALSO: Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. remember Stan Lee with heartfelt posts

"Bigotry and racism are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today...It’s totally irrational, patently insane to condemn an entire race — to despise an entire nation — to vilify an entire religion," Lee wrote. "...Sooner or later, if man is ever to be worthy of his destiny, we must fill out hearts with tolerance." Read more...

Beto O'Rourke and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have mastered Instagram Stories

Monday Nov 12th 2018

In a world increasingly obsessed with social media, today's politicians have found a secret weapon: Instagram stories.

By documenting their daily activities using Instagram's Stories and Live features, rising political stars like Beto O'Rourke and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have given supporters a rare glimpse at some of the most humanizing moments in their lives.

For many, the stripped down, extremely casual content — think cooking dinner at home or doing DIY projects with family — serves as a refreshing change from polished speeches and the formality of campaign trails. And so far political Instagram seems to be a big hit. Read more...

Watch Michelle Obama's eyebrows as she reveals that Melania Trump ignored her offer for advice

Monday Nov 12th 2018

The complicated relationship between former First Lady Michelle Obama and current First Lady Melania Trump got another wrinkle on Monday.

Michelle Obama, during an interview with ABC to promote her upcoming memoir Becoming, talked about how Laura Bush had reached out to her before she became First Lady in 2008. Michelle extended the same offer to Melania after Donald Trump was elected, but when asked by Robin Roberts if Melania had accepted, Michelle replied only, "No, no she hasn't."
