Google employees ask SF Pride to boot their employer from parade

TwitterFacebook

Pride has always been political, and a coalition of Google employees are doing their best to remind their employer of that very fact. 

In an open letter published Wednesday morning, the group encourages the San Francisco Pride board of directors to kick Google out of the upcoming June 30 Pride parade. The letter, which at the time of this writing is signed by 101 employees of the Mountain View-based tech giant, calls the company to task for both its treatment of LGBTQ+ employees and its…

Prime Day sale competition heats up with Target, ebay joining the mix

TwitterFacebook

Target just announced a massive two-day summer sale. It’s called Target Deal Days, and it’s going down on July 15 and 16.

If that sounds familiar, it’s probably because those are the same dates as this year’s Amazon Prime Day — announced hours after Amazon made the big reveal.

A competing two-day sale is major, but other retailers trying to mess with Prime Day’s traffic isn’t surprising. Amazon Prime Day 2018 was (by far) the most shopped day of the year, beating out both Black Friday and…

Instagram just put ads in one of its last ad-free places

TwitterFacebook

We knew this day would come.

On Tuesday, Instagram announced that it will begin using the Explore tab as a way to show ads to users. The ads won’t show up in the main grid. Instead, once a user clicks on a post from Explore, Instagram will serve ads in the discovery feed users scroll through from that post. 

Instagram just put ads in one of its last ad-free places

Ads already appear in the home and story feeds, with more volume and more types of ads than ever. Explore had been, until Tuesday, one of the (surprisingly) last places on Instagram…

‘Name the film, but wrong answers only’ meme is cinematic comedy gold

TwitterFacebook

Before your favorite films hit the big screens, they probably had a working title that, while technically accurate, could’ve made it a very different movie if usedThe Breakfast Club was The Lunch Bunch. Clueless was No Worries, I Was a Teenage Teenager. And American Pie was Untitled Teenage Sex Comedy That Can Be Made For Under $10 Million That Most Readers Will Probably Hate But I Think You Will Love. 

But what about describing a movie using the name of another movie? Twitter might be onto…

Humanitarian travel: Photo workshops that give back

TwitterFacebook

My first trip with The Giving Lens (TGL) was to Morocco in 2016. I’d never heard of the organization before that and hadn’t ever been on a travel photography workshop when a notice for the trip popped up on my Facebook feed, and I immediately knew I wanted to go. I’d visited northern Morocco in 2014, after discovering that my direct paternal ancestry was Amazigh (Berber). I had thought of returning on my own to visit southern Morocco (Marrakech and the Sahara), where most of the people I met…

We’re fracking the hell out of the U.S.A. Can a president slam on the brakes?

TwitterFacebook

Highway 285, cutting through the Texas-New Mexico border, is perilous.

Lines of speeding trucks lugging oil and fracking tanks gouge big cracks in the narrow two-way roadway. Come night, in the blackened, high desert, it can be challenging to even stay on the crumbling asphalt, with hurrying, aggressive big rigs swerving over the faint yellow linesPeople die. Shirts are now sold reading “I survived the 285.”

The remote highway is bustling, often dangerously so, because the U.S. fracking…
