People Are Still Talking About “The World’s Sexiest Koala”

Humans suck. We treat the planet like it is our own personal trash patch. (All non-human animals be damned.) We film ourselves eating Tide Pods and we use military weapons to light up.  Another terrible, terrible thing our species is wont to do is sexualize other animals. First, there was Shabani the gorilla. Then, there was this hench kangaroo – or roolander (sorry) – and New York’s “hot” duck. Now, we have the “World’s Sexiest Koala” because nothing is sacred. The innocent koala was going about his day, munching on eucalyptus leaves and doing whatever it is that koalas do, when British photographer Ross Long snapped him in an unusual pose. Long then posted a photo on Instagram with the caption “Draw me like one of your French …

Kate Beckinsale Deletes ALL Her Instagram Posts – Is She Pulling A Pete Davidson!? – Perez Hilton

As of Friday morning, the 45-year-old actress apparently wiped her ENTIRE Instagram clean of all posts — a move that’s been made by the likes of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and, of course, a certain Saturday Night Life star whom Kate has been dating recently. Maybe she’s just trying to rebrand? That was the reason behind the Insta-blackouts of Miley and Taylor, who both went dark for months in between their albums. Then again, Kate isn’t dropping a new album… that we know of. As we know, Davidson has done his fair share of social media bow outs as well. He last deactivated his IG account at the end of 2018 following his breakup with Ariana Grande. At the time, he …

A Clever Tool Uses Apples Videogame Logic Engine to Protect Macs

Between new types of malware, egregious bugs, and uni­versal threats like phishing, Macs are not the invul­nerable lockboxes Apple once touted. But in thinking about how to defend Macs against a new generation of threats, researchers at the security firm Digita are taking advantage of features Macs already offer to monitor threats in unexpected ways. And it's all powered by Apple's logic engine for videogames. At the RSA security conference in San Francisco on Tuesday, Digita chief research officer Patrick Wardle is presenting GamePlan, a tool that watches for potentially suspicious events on Macs and flags them for humans to investigate. The general concept sounds similar to other defense platforms, and it hooks into detection mechanisms—has a USB stick been …

A convicted troll took a shot at Puerto Rico. Then Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stopped by.

Why would anyone attack Puerto Rico? The island and its residents are still recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria. Despite losing an estimated 70 percent of its agriculture during the hurricane and enduring an estimated $9 billion in damages, the people of Puerto Rico continue to focus on recovery efforts. And along the way, they continue to make very meaningful contributions to the United States, despite an ongoing and seemingly endless pursuit of statehood. In case you didn’t get that, Puerto Rico is the “good guy” in this story. So, who’s the bad guy? Enter Dinesh D’Souza. The right-wing commentator has become more of a troll than a thought leader in recent years. He’s even a convicted felon. …

Hong Kong (CNN Business)Starbucks is having to defend its marketing strategy in China and all because of a cat cup.

Facebook’s Pivot to Privacy Is Missing Something Crucial

If there’s one choice that Facebook has made repeatedly over the past 15 years, it’s been to prioritize growth over privacy. Users were consistently encouraged to make more of their information public than they were comfortable with. The settings to make things public were always a bit easier to use than the ones to make things private. Data was collected that you didn’t have any idea was being collected and shared in ways you had no idea it was being shared. Sometimes data was just suddenly made public all at once. They were the choices of a young man, secure in himself, and confident in the goodwill of the rest of the Internet. They were the choices of someone building …

Khlo Kardashian says we should show love to racists but why coddle them? | Yomi Adegoke

In the minds of many, being colourblind is seen as a type of kindness, that racism cannot exist if we are all just humans Over the weekend, Khlo Kardashian pic.twitter.com/KnVqFCmH6a colour-blindness is a type of kindness. Such people believe that acknowledging racism does more harm than racism itself which is only true if you consider that white fragility is being harmed. Coddling the complicit is hardly new, of course. Colour-blindness allows liberals to lay claim to wokeness without doing the work required to undermine white supremacy: how can it even exist if were all just humans, man? The Kardashians babies, besties and boyfriends continue to be human shields against accusations of racism laid at the door of this ever-ignorant family. …
