Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Facebook Videos of Her Trip to Standing Rock Reveal Her Political Awakening

Almost everyone who came to Standing Rock repeated the same legend. Someone, maybe Crazy Horse, had made a prophecy a long time ago—probably in the late 1870s—about the looming destruction of the planet. The “who” and “when” parts of the story were always fuzzy, but the prophecy was always the same: the “black snake” of darkness and discord was going to infect the land, seeping into the fires and air and water, spreading conflict and violence, and threatening the reciprocal relationship bet...

An Artist Tricks Google Maps Into Creating a Virtual Traffic Jam, Using a Little Red Wagon & 99 Smartphones

Sometimes the miraculous time-saving conveniences we’ve come to depend on can have the opposite effect, as artist Simon Wickert recently demonstrated, ambling about the streets of Berlin at a Huck Finn-ish pace, towing a squeaky-wheeled red wagon loaded with 99 secondhand smartphones. Each phone had a SIM card, and all were running the Google Maps app. The result? A near-instantaneous "virtual traffic jam” on Google Maps, even though bicyclists seem to vastly outnumber motorists alon...

The "Mona Cut" Is the Angled Bob Haircut Trend Taking Over Your Instagram Feed

I can always count on my Instagram feed to help me stumble upon a hair trend or moment that stops me dead in my tracks and often leads me down a rabbit hole. First it was the knotless box braids that practically took over last year, and now it's the geometric curly bob haircut that may or may not just inspire my next trip to the salon. The style in question, also known as the "Mona Cut," is somewhat of a signature of New York City-based stylist Mona Baltazar. Baltazar has become well-known on s...

How Deleting Instagram for 30 Days Saved my Sanity

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - By now, it’s no surprise that 2019 was a pretty rough year for me personally. It was exacerbated by a difficult breakup at the end of the year, some financial problems, and a general malaise from all the news of the world. By the time December 1st rolled around, I had pretty much checked out for the year—unable and unwilling to do much work, and just generally ~ tired. Every little thing was affecting my mood;...

Danny Pellegrino, Tom Sandoval, and Ariana Madix at the book signing for “Fancy AF Cocktails.” When Bravo put on its first fan convention in New York City last November, lines wrapped around the block as hopeful viewers tried to catch a glimpse of Lisa Vanderpump in the flesh or to see Ramona Singer get into a tiff with a co-star live and in person.

This Week in Photography: China and New York in the 80’s

  Everyone wants to be down-to-earth? Right? It seems like one of those compliments that is universally understood to be a good thing. It means relatable. Grounded. Empathetic to others’ experience. Humble. Polite. Thoughtful. Respectful. For some people though, (yes, they’re often rich,) the lure of being fake, affected and pretentious is just too strong. In this case, I’m thinking about Gwyneth Paltrow, the occasional actress, full-time GOOP lifestyle guru/ magnate, likely vegan, and occasiona...

Social Media Helped Juul Dominate the Vaping Market. Now, Teens Are Using It to Help Each Other Quit

Juul Labs , the e-cigarette company so popular its name became a verb, wouldn’t be where it is without social media. In the company’s early years, a steady stream of posts from users and influencers helped turn Juul from a smoking alternative to a cultural phenomenon. So many Juul users— many of them teenagers —voluntarily posted about vaping that it hardly made a difference when the company in 2018 silenced its own accounts to help stem its popularity among underage users. Now, in th...

Photographer Desiree Rios

I was struck by the pictures in this interesting and somewhat offbeat feature in the NYT*: "A Luxury Dish Is Banned, and a Rural County Reels." Politically you could have any of a range of reactions to the story, but let's not go there. In a nutshell, a traditional delicacy for wealthy people is banned in New York City as being gratuitously cruel to animals, echoing many other such bans worldwide, but the poor people who produce it—some of whom have had a dreadful odyssey to reach safe haven—are...

28 ways companies and governments can collect your personal data and invade your privacy every day

In modern life, privacy is no longer a given — people are being tracked on their daily commute, at work, online, and when they're shopping. That's because data is valuable. In 2018, American companies spent an estimated $19 billion attaining and interpreting consumer data. Data is a commodity to be sold for advertising, used by government agencies to stop crimes, or for companies to increase workplace productivity. Almost nothing is private anymore.
