Microsoft removed ads from Facebook and Instagram starting May: Report

Unlike other advertisers who have joined an ad boycott against Facebook, Microsoft was concerned about where its ads will appear. According to Microsoft, examples of inappropriate content includes hate speech, pornography, terrorist content, etc. Microsoft had also pulled ads from YouTube over similar concerns, but eventually restored the ads...

Animals spotted in empty city street

Lockdowns around the world might mean that humans are hunkering down in their homes, but thankfully, this whole situation does not apply to wildlife. While the streets of many towns and cities are deserted, in some communities animals are filling the void left by humans, taking to the streets themselves. From the United States to the United Kingdom, India, Spain, and more, animals are seizing this rare opportunity to explore our cities and towns. They aren’t wearing our pants or taking our j...

Thru-hiking during coronavirus

The coronavirus has upended society across the globe. In the outdoors world, the spotlight has been turned to thru-hikers after a hiker’s death along the Pacific Crest Trail on March 28. The hiker, who suffered unspecified injuries in the San Jacinto Mountains, was pronounced dead by the rescue team upon arrival. The following day, two other hikers were rescued after being stuck on a patch of trail covered in snow and ice. Though these incidents were not directly related to the coronavirus, t...

Best online language-learning tools

As most of us have been ordered to stay home to help control the spread of COVID-19, we’re all looking for ways to pass the time and learn new skills from the confines of our own houses. Because we will travel again when this is all over, and because speaking a foreign language is an incredibly useful part of our explorer’s toolkit, using our time at home to learn a new language is time well spent. Using a language-learning tool is a cheap, easy, and social way to pick up a new skill. You can...

Best virtual ways to connect social

Whether you’re on lockdown or sheltering in place, steering clear of loved ones to flatten the coronavirus curve is not doing anyone’s social life any favors. Although we’re all familiar with the physical symptoms to keep an eye on during the health crisis, boredom and loneliness are side effects of the new, post-pandemic normal that can be distressing to our mental health. To cope with social distancing, people are finding new ways to interact with their neighbors and making good use of vid...

Facebook, Google, Reddit and others say they are jointly combating fraud and misinformation about COVID-19

Reddit map of New York City

New York City is in a constant state of flux. There are few better examples of this than the ever-shifting (and ever-argued-about) neighborhood boundaries, which have a different name or border depending on which resident you ask and which real estate developer is trying to sell you on a property. To try and settle the debate once and for all, a Redditor created an official NYC Neighborhoods Map. The map designates 288 neighborhoods in the five boroughs. It covers the obvious and largely unco...

laundromats, underground libraries, and criminal charges: a library link round-up

What is the tallest building in each

It can be tough to get a sense of a building’s scale unless you’re comparing it first-hand, side-by-side, with a skyscraper. When many of us were growing up, the Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower) in Chicago, Illinois, was the tallest building in the country, but that title has since been awarded to the One World Trade Center in New York City. We know how tall the WTC is in feet, but exactly how much taller than the other skyscrapers in the country? And what does that actually look like? Than...

History of Irish Coffees

There’s a connotation that mixing alcohol with your caffeinated beverage of choice means you want a way to stay up partying all night. Blame Four Loko and the folks behind the Red Bull Vodka for that. Long before the advent of either of these drinks, however, there was the Irish Coffee, traditionally made as a welcome drink for weary travelers rather than a tonic to keep you awake at the club. The Irish Coffee, unlike a Oaxacan Old Fashioned or Moscow Mule, actually comes from the country th...

How to Make Friends and Meet People While Traveling

One of the questions I get asked most often is how I make so many friends while traveling on my own. I travel solo most of the time, and while you think it might be lonely, it’s not. I’m able to meet so many people on my travels. Here’s the truth — I’m not the most social person in the world. I’m an introvert who always has her nose in a book and needs a few days to recover after a party. Most readers who meet me say I’m much quieter than they expected, and making friends isn’t the easiest th...

Google a conservé votre historique d’il y a 10 ans

Google est souvent taxé d'intrusif. Tout comme l'ensemble des réseaux sociaux, à vrai dire. Mais cet article ne pourra pas prétendre le contraire, puisque selon un utilisateur de Reddit, un forum en ligne très populaire, il est tout à fait possible de connaître qui nous étions il y a de ça 10 ans. Et ce, sans fouiller dans les archives de son compte Facebook. Pour ce faire, il suffit ...

Gloria brings international soccer scouting into the 21st century

Lionel Messi, who’s still arguably the greatest soccer player in the world, signed his first contract with FC Barcelona when he was thirteen years old. Although he grew up in a small town in central Argentina, he had captured the attention of some of the world’s most famous soccer teams when he was only eleven years old. While Messi’s rags to riches story is the stuff that sports dreams are made of, it’s impossible for the world’s best teams to get a window into all of the world’s best players, ...

Ecuador protests enter fifth day

Protests across Ecuador are continuing for their fifth day, and only show signs of becoming larger and more dangerous. They began in response to President Lenin Moreno’s abolition of fuel subsidies, which resulted in the sharp rise in consumer prices. In just three days, prices in food markets and elsewhere have increased by up to a third, and people aren’t happy. Authorities have even started arresting shopkeepers for raising the price of food, but that doesn’t seem to be helping the issue. ...

10 Things You Didn’t Know About China

The People’s Republic of China is an amazing country, with an ancient history steeped in wonder and so many modern marvels to explore. This fascinating and unique country is the most populated country in the world, as well as one of the largest by land mass. Many of the people who live here still abide by their traditional Chinese culture, but the country has always been at the forefront of innovation too, graduating more science, technology, engineering, and mathematics students than any ot...

How to stay sober while traveling

Getting sober might be the hardest thing you ever do. And if travel and alcohol have always been intertwined for you, kicking the booze habit can be absolutely devastating. If asked before I quit drinking, I would have dismissed sober travel as not only unfun but pretty much impossible. How can I backpack around Ireland and not have a pint? Barcelona without vino? And how can I travel with my friends who still drink? Even if you’ve been sober for years, travel can shake your confidence in nav...

Sanjay Sonawani’s response on Reddit to some misguided “rebuttal” of his views

On Reddit someone called Mad_Sanghi wrote: This is weird. Instead of thinking vedas as the source of Hinduism, the author argues it is a later addition by some immigrants. I think it is BS, because bramahnical society was using them, before the gupta period, as is visible by rise of Buddhism or Jainism before 5 […]

Snap CEO’s sister Caroline Spiegel starts a no-visuals porn site

If you took the photos and videos out of pornography, could it appeal to a new audience? Caroline Spiegel’s first startup Quinn aims to bring some imagination to adult entertainment. Her older brother, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, spent years trying to convince people his app wasn’t just for sexy texting. Now Caroline is building a website dedicated to sexy text and audio. The 22-year-old college senior tells TechCrunch that on April 13th she’ll launch Quinn, which she describes as “a much less gr...

Things I’ve Learned from Living in NYC for One Year

This week marks my one-year anniversary of living in New York City. I arrived here in March, when it was still cold (but sunny) outside. I remember my arrival, the $60 taxi ride from the airport to my makeshift accommodation (a friend’s couch). The excitement and the anxiety. After years of enjoying European culture while living in Berlin, I faced a lot of immediate shock on my return to the USA. Before I moved to New York City, I’d been here countless times. But living in NYC is nothing like vi...

“It is unacceptable to treat the internet as an ungoverned space,” Australian PM calls for global tech scrutiny

Here are the 88 companies that launched at YC’s W19 Demo Day 2

Today was the second half of Y Combinator’s two-day Demo Day for its Winter 2019 class. Over 85 startups pitched on stage yesterday, and another huge batch launched today. Previously held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, this YC Demo Day instead took over a massive warehouse in San Francisco. Like yesterday’s pitches, today’s were split across two stages (“Pioneer” and “Mission”) running in parallel — so even if you were there, you couldn’t see everything alone. Here are all o...

Videos of shooting tragedy in New Zealand continue resurfacing on social media

This is a tragedy that doesn’t deserve a snappy lede, but it is one that needs to be highlighted because tech companies should be held to account. Earlier today, there was a horrendous mass mosque shooting in New Zealand that killed 49 people — and because this is 2019, social media was used by the apparent murderers to plan, announce, broadcast and virally resonate what they did. Some of that — such as the Facebook and Twitter accounts of the perpetrator — have been deleted. Yet nearly 12 ho...
