’60 Minutes’ producers launch a ’10 minute or less’ Quibi series in bid to attract younger viewers

After teasing the series’ arrival for some months, Quibi is finally ready to launch its take on 60 Minutes for the social media generation. What that mainly means is content tailored to the shortened attention spans of viewers on top which the service has hung all of its hopes, dreams and $1.8 billion. The new take on the America’s oldest newsmagazine goes under the banner  ’60 IN 6’ — slightly confusing, given that its producers are committing to a broader definition of short form content at...

Zuckerberg cites a post from India as a clear-cut example of ‘incitement to violence’

For Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, while posts from US President Donald Trump may not pose a “100 per cent clear-cut of a decision”, posts from India where “someone” said “‘Hey, if the police don’t take care of this, our supporters will get in there and clear the streets’” are a clear cut case of incitement of violence and have been taken down. This was revealed in a transcript of a meeting that Zuckerberg held with 25,000 employees on June 2. Recode published the transcript of the meeting. Zucke...

Campaign to defund the police

The murder of George Floyd at the hand of a white police officer on May 25 has sparked more than just protests and calls for shifting racial relations. It’s also prompting a movement to defund law enforcement across the US. For several years activists have been advocating for US cities and states to cut police budgets, and although such demands previously gained little traction, recent events have drawn more mainstream attention to the issue. Julia Salazar, a New York state senator, told , ...

Meghan Markle addresses BLM

In a recent video, Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle emerged from the Los Angeles hideaway where she’s been living a relatively quiet life with her family, to address the graduating class of 2020 at her alma mater, Immaculate Heart High School. Markle and her husband recently stirred up what we thought would be the biggest firestorm of 2020 when they left behind the British tabloids, paparazzi, the rest of the royal family, and the Queen herself, and fled to the United States.

kareem abdul-jabbar: you start to wonder if it should be all black people who wear body cams, not the cops

One of the best things I've read about the protests rocking in the US and elsewhere is an op-ed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in the Los Angeles Times. In case you don't know him, Abdul-Jabbar is a basketball legend. His NBA stats are off the charts (Wikipedia). He's also a writer and a social activist. I have to say, I'm a bit in awe of him.Here's Abdul-Jabbar's take on the protests. The piece, originally run by the L.A. Times, is also available on his website.Don't understand the protests?

police resisters: not the solution to systemic racism, but an extremely positive development

I was shocked when Detective Dmaine Freeland, an active duty officer on the NYPD force, publicly condemned the Minneapolis officer who killed George Floyd and the other cops who witnessed the murder and did nothing to stop it. To say this is unusual is a massive understatement. It's absolutely unheard of.Being the first person to speak out in a culture that demands silence is incredibly difficult.When one person speaks out against evil and stands up for justice, others will follow. Next, four m...

george floyd, christian cooper, and when will this end?

The murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers may be the most shocking  disturbing of any I've been aware of for a very long time, possibly since the murder of Amadou Diallo, way back in 1999. Police murders of unarmed, and often completely subdued, African Americans have lost all power to shock, piling up at such a fast rate we can barely track them all. When I saw the hashtag #RememberThemAll, I thought, we can't. No human can.The original New York Times story said George Floyd "d...

Traditional Minnesotan foods

Minnesota doesn’t disappoint in the natural wonders department. After all, it’s the birthplace of the mighty Mississippi, North America’s longest river, and is famously the Land of 10,000 Lakes (actually 15,000, but who’s counting). But the North Star State impresses in another category as well: food. By channeling its immigrant roots and true northern spirit, Minnesotans have fully embraced their destiny as a culinary capital. 1. Jucy/Juicy Lucy Photo: 5-8 Club/Facebook Minnesota’s Juic...

Today, food truck festivals are worthy of a Google calendar alert, and the divine appearance of an ice...

The best and most famous pies in US

The United States is a pie-loving country. We eat it for dessert and the leftovers for breakfast. We argue about how and if to make homemade crust (and usually eat it regardless). We especially love pie around the holidays.

Some states share a pie style, proving that even though states have their differences, we’re also alike in m...
