New News From the World of Stuff

Of course, the "stuff" doesn't have very much to do with photography—as they say in courtrooms, that's stipulated (in law the word means "to accept a proposition without requiring that it be established by proof"). That aside, a number of delightful new baubles of interest have passed by in the parade recently, as you might be aware. The new Canon EOS RP Full-frame Rebel: Most notable is the EOS RP, Canon's new "lower-end" R (full-frame mirrorless) camera. It's a small, light, relatively inex...

Lessons from Washington & Lincoln

PRESIDENTS DAY was created in 1968 when George Washington’s birthday (February 22) was moved to the third Monday of February as part of the Uniform Holidays Bill. Today it is thought of as a day to remember all U.S. presidents but with a focus on the lives of Washington and Lincoln who was also born in February (12th). Both of these leaders possessed a great deal of self-awareness. Washington’s success, in part, came from knowing his weaknesses and controlling them. Lincoln listened. Lincoln to...

Instagram’s fundraiser stickers could lure credit card numbers

Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed that commerce is a huge part of the 2019 roadmap for Facebook’s family of apps. But before people can easily buy things from Instagram etc, Facebook needs their credit card info on file. That’s a potentially lucrative side effect of Instagram’s plan to launch a Fundraiser sticker in 2019. Facebook’s own Donate buttons have raised $1 billion, and bringing them to Instagram’s 1 billion users could do a lot of good while furthering Facebook’s commerce strategy. ...

Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas Tags USHER in ‘Soulmate’ Post…

Once upon a time… way back in the early 2000’s, Usher Raymond and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas were a couple. Chilli was one-third of the hottest girl group at the time, TLC, and Usher was a rising solo artist with his first Billboard 100 hit, “U Remind Me.” We first fell in love with the couple as they played their love affair out in the music video for Usher’s single, as Chilli was also his ‘older’ leading lady in REAL LIFE. Now that Valentine’s day has come and gone, it seems that Chilli was ‘r...

8 books returned in one day!!?!

Trump Breaks Precedent As President With His 2020 Dem Challengers Punditry

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kamala Harris had the best campaign roll-out. Amy Klobuchar’s snowy debut showed grit. Elizabeth Warren’s opening campaign video was a bit odd. Take it from an unlikely armchair pundit sizing up the 2020 Democratic field: President Donald Trump. In tweets, public remarks and private conversations, Trump is making clear he is closely following the campaign to challenge him on the ballot. Facing no serious primary opponent of his own — at least so far — Trump is esta...

Beyoncé Challenged You To Eat A Plant-Based Diet — But Is She A Vegan?

The answer is no: Beyoncé isn’t a vegan.And no, Jay-Z isn’t either.The New York Times put an end to recent speculation with information straight from Bey and Jay’s personal trainer, Marco Borges: “Beyoncé eats ‘a plant-based’ — i.e. vegan — ‘breakfast daily’ and consumes no meat on Mondays. Jay-Z eats ‘two plant-based meals a day.’”So perhaps the best way to characterize the superstars is as part-time vegans (or rather, excuse me, part-time “plant-based” dieters). And “part-time” is key here, a...
