one from the archives: a ghost story

“Wall” (from the series “Ghosts”) by artist Tom Friedman, taken at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, September 2018. Earlier this week, my friend Jenny Lawson shared a ghost story on her Twitter account, and I was transfixed. And then I remembered that I had a ghost story of my own, that I shared almost 6 years ago here on Chookooloonks, on July 31, 2013. Inspired by Jenny, I tho...

PicsArt hits 130 million MAUs as Chinese flock to its photo editing app

If you’re like me, who isn’t big on social media, you’d think that the image filters that come inside most apps will do the job. But for many others, especially the younger crowd, making their photos stand out is a huge deal. The demand is big enough that PicsArt, a rival to filtering companies VSCO and Snapseed, recently hit 130 million monthly active users worldwide, roughly a year after it amassed 100 million MAUs. Like VSCO, PicsArt now offers video overlays though images are still its fo...

Get Savvy

FAKE NEWS is not a new phenomenon. From the beginning of time, people have played loose with the truth in order to get what they want. Trust too, has waxed and waned over the millennia. It’s not new. People have always had to be on the lookout for fake news. And much has gotten through our filters over the centuries and has negatively impacted the assumptions we take for granted today. Perhaps what if different today is our ability to so quickly and persuasively disseminate it through technolog...

Dismantling the new Canon EOS RP in this extreme teardown

I’d think most people were pleasantly surprised with the release of the EOS RP. Full-frame mirrorless cameras were getting increasingly sophisticated, which is a good thing, but they were getting increasingly expensive along the way. After all, it’s the enthusiast and prosumer crowd that wants mirrorless cameras more than anyone else. Top tier professional photographers […] The post Dismantling the new Canon EOS RP in this extreme teardown appeared first on DIY Photography.

Maurkice Pouncey sticks up for Big Ben as a leader

In the division among Steelers and former Steelers about what kind of leader Ben Roethlisberger is, put center Maurkice Pouncey in the pro-Ben camp. Pouncey, who has snapped to Roethlisberger for nine seasons, took to Instagram today to stick up for his quarterback. Pouncey didn't call out any of those “players who leave” by name, but he was presumably referring to Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, as well as former Steelers running back Josh Harris, who created a stir by accusing Roethl...

College admissions: long a murky cesspool of sports, affirmative action, government and benefactors

If you were laboring under the illusion that the admissions process at elite colleges is a meritocracy, stop. The college admissions cheating scandal comes as no surprise for those who have watched the process over the years. Parents want their kids in good schools because that reflects on them, not the kids.

Wednesday Open Mike: Diet Progress

[I didn't write an Open Mike—"the anything-goes, often off-topic editorial page of TOP"—last week, so I'm being indulgent with myself this week. I stuck it behind a page break in case you'd rather skip it. On that heading, it's always wise to bear in mind that not every post here is for everybody. That's how I think of blogging as I write. Sometimes the posts are for 90% of all my readers, sometimes as few as 5%, and there are posts for every percentage in between. It's all good, though, because...
