Instagram’s hashtag searches gave Trump better treatment than Biden

Instagram apparently handled searches for popular hashtags related to the two presidential candidates differently, pointing Joe Biden search queries toward often negative related hashtags while making no such suggestions in corresponding searches pertaining to President Trump. A new report by the Tech Transparency Project details the strange platform behavior. In the report, the tech watchdog compared searches for 20 popular hashtags related to the Trump and Biden campaigns and found that rel...

Innovation is Everybody’s Business

EVERYONE has ideas. Innovation is within each of us. We just need to unlock it. Many of us have experienced negative reactions to our ideas and so tend to hold back sharing new ones. If we are going to be an innovator, we need to have a healthy relationship with change. Change is an opportunity to innovate. Tamara Ghandour defines innovation as “thinking differently about what’s right in front of you to create an advantage” in her book Innovation is Everybody’s Business. There are opportunities...

Facebook's Instagram photo-sharing app is launching its clone of TikTok in more than 50 countries, a week after Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg defended the company's copycat strategies to U.S. lawmakers at an antitrust hearing.

Come with me, and I will make you fishers of the sun.

I wanted to get the text of the Jesus quote right so I could transform it for the post title. Of course, there are many translations of Matthew 4:19, but the one I wanted was "Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men."I couldn't find it. Translations that ended with "I will make you fishers of men" began with "Follow me" or "Come ye after me." Translations that began with "Come with me" had clumsy endings: "Come with me! I will teach you how to bring in people instead of fish," "Come w...

How Instagram Is Changing The Job Of A Critic

Being unable to see real works of art in person for months has made me realize just how much I have come to depend on seeing works online—and how I get more from that experience than I’d been willing to admit. I have not felt much desire to delve into the online offerings of galleries and museums, but nonetheless I have been seeing lots of art onscreen—it’s just that I’ve been getting it straight from the artists, mainly via their Instagram accounts. I’ve liked that. – The Nation

Leading Thoughts for August 6, 2020

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I. Alan Weiss on the fact that most fears are learned as are leadership behaviors, and we have to understand the causes: “We cannot create improved behavior contingently, that is, simply patching up leaks and putting on band-aids. We have to prevent the fearful behavior in the future by eliminating the probable causes. The therapist’s admonition to “face...

Looking Around

Once again on our Sunday walk we stayed at street level above the Seine and did some exploring. An ancient clock still working. 600 years old! We stopped for another petit dejuner. I only had one of these. I thought they looked so pretty in the light from the window. Yet another picture of the Seine, a bridge and reflections in the water. I’m addicted. An interesting decoration on a building that was once a restaurant called The Silver Bell. I think the artist wh...

Mark Zuckerberg just became the third person on Earth worth over $100 billion. Here's how the Facebook CEO makes and spends his fortune.

Mark Zuckerberg's fortune surpassed $100 billion after Facebook launched its TikTok competitor in the US. That makes the tech titan only the third current centi-billionaire on Earth. In June, advertisers including Verizon, Honda, and Ben & Jerry's boycotted Facebook over the social network's lack of hate-speech moderation.

Istanbul Captured in Beautiful Color Images from 1890: The Hagia Sophia, Topkaki Palace’s Imperial Gate & More

Even those who know nothing else about Istanbul know that it used to be called Constantinople. The official renaming happened in 1930, meaning that the photographs you see here, all of which date from around 1890, were taken, strictly speaking, not in Istanbul but Constantinople. But under any name, and despite all the other changes that have occurred over the past 130 years, the Turkish metropolis on the Bosphorus remains recognizable as the gateway between East and West it has been throughou...

Paris Photos

More photos around rue de Buci (in July). Coffee at Paul, known for their bread. Across the street from Paul. Note the guy in the window. Quite a few tourists too. Doesn’t this look inviting? Inside a quiet passageway. I went into St Germain des Pres to look at the freshly painted interior. Gorgeous. A look to the side.
