BEGIN SLIDESHOW Channel Zero canceled after four seasons at SYFY

SYFY’s Channel Zero is officially off the air. Showrunner Nick Antosca posted to Instagram confirming that the anthology series would not be moving forward at the cable network. Channel Zero first premiered back in late 2016. The most recent season, Channel Zero: The Dream Door, premiered last year.

Antosca thanked many of his series collaborators in the caption. “I loved making this show and I would have loved to do more… but I can’t complain too much about doing 4 stories I loved with people who I loved working with,” the post began. “People like our writers, our actors, our extraordinary crew, the artists who contributed, our editors and post team, our composer Jeff Russo, our team at Syfy and UCP. And especially the four awesome directors, Craig Macneill, Steven Piet, Arkasha Stevenson, and Evan Katz.

He also thanked Kris Straub, Brian Russell, Kerry Hammond, and Charlotte Bywater, who were the authors of the creepypasta stories on which Channel Zero was based. The most recent Channel Zero installment was based on the creepypasta short story Hidden Door by Charlotte Bywater.

Previous seasons of the series include Channel Zero: Candle CoveChannel Zero: No-End House, and Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block, which are currently available to stream anytime on Shudder. The fourth season, Channel Zero: The Dream Door, will be added soon.

Sprint customers can now use Apple Business Chat to reach an agent http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Techcrunch/~3/zNprUqGIQhs/ Sprint today announced it will support Apple’s Business Chat – the new platform that allows businesses and customers to interact over iMessage. According to the carrier, customers can now message a Sprint customer service agent, get info about plans and other services, as well as look up store information in Maps, Safari and with Siri during a chat session.

The support from Sprint comes after two other launches on the platform this week.

TD Ameritrade said it will allow customers to fund their brokerage accounts using Apple Pay on Apple Business Chat. And Gubagoo said it will connect car dealerships with customers through Business Chat for viewing inventory, plus scheduling test drives and service appointments.

Apple has been steadily growing its list of supported Business Chat partners, and today has a number of big brands on its platform, which is still in beta. These include names like 1-800-Contacts, DISH, Overstock.com, Quicken Loans, Kimpton Hotels, West Elm, Burberry, Vodafone, Wells Fargo, Credit Suisse, Jos A. Bank, Men’s Warehouse, The Home Depot, Hilton, Four Seasons, American Express, Harry & David, and several others.

The platform also supports integrations with customer service platforms LivePerson, Salesforce, Nuance, Genesys, InTheChat, Zendesk, Quiq, Cisco, Kipsu, Lithium, eGain, [24]7.ai, ContactAtOnce, Dimelo, Brand Embassy, ASAPP, IMImobile, and MessengerPeople, according to Apple’s website.

Business Chat was officially introduced at WWDC 2017, and is Apple’s entry into the business messaging and chatbot space.

Before its arrival, customers would generally reach out to businesses through social media sites like Facebook (e.g. Pages and Messenger; WhatsApp and Instagram) and Twitter. But Apple’s product gets the businesses even closer to the customer, as their chats can live alongside those from family and friends. Plus, they don’t have to share their data with a third-party.

For consumers, reaching a business through iMessage is also a bit easier at times.

A company’s Business Chat profile is highlighted across Apple’s iOS platform in areas like Safari, Maps, Spotlight, and via Siri. This makes it more seamless to move from one Apple app to an iMessage chat, compared with having to seek out the business’s social media profile.

It’s also less painful than having to dial a customer service phone number, in many cases – as Sprint today pointed out.

“More consumers are embracing quick and easy self-service and digital assistance versus calling customer service through an 800 line,” said Rob Roy, Sprint chief digital officer, in a statement about the launch. “Apple Business Chat is an amazing tool for our customers that makes communicating with Sprint fast, easy and stress-free.”

Business Chat has come at a time when the “phone” part of our smartphones is turning into just another “app” – and increasingly, a spammy and bothersome one thanks to spam calls. Apple’s solution makes it easier for customers and businesses to move away from phone lines, while Google is leveraging AI to handle spammers – and even place calls for customers through its Google Duplex technology.

32 Celebrities Who Ditch Makeup On Their Day Off https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2016/10/125623/celebrities-without-makeup-photos?utm_source=feed&utm_medium=rss

There is only one rule of makeup, which is that there are none. Foundation diehard? Allow us to direct you to our favorite ones. More the fiercely fresh-faced type? Here's the skin-care routine that will make you glow. We don't subscribe to the narrative that either one is better, or braver, than the other.

That said, we've noticed an uptick in celebrities who have been jumping on the no-makeup train — led by the patron saint of cosmetics-free complexions, Alicia Keys. But that's not to say all of Hollywood is kicking its eyeshadows to the curb. Plenty of celebs still sport bold beauty looks on occasion, and also have their moments of free-facing it. Not only does it keep us guessing, it also shows us all the ways we can use makeup to enhance or highlight our features.

Ahead, check out some of our favorite celebs with and without makeup. It's not brave, it's not a reason to gossip, it's not revolutionary — it's just makeup.

Kesha
Throughout her singing career, Kesha has made a name for herself as a boundary-pushing beauty icon (especially when it comes to glitter. Kesha loves glitter).

Photo: JB Lacroix/Getty Images.

Underneath all that shimmer, Kesha has the prettiest set of freckles, which she's vowed to embrace in 2019. "This year my resolution is to love myself... just as I am, all fucked up and imperfect and whatever else," she wrote on Instagram. "And to let my freckles liiiiiiiive." Amen.

Instagram

Rashida Jones

More often than not, Rashida Jones keeps her makeup simple on the red carpet, choosing to wear beauty staples like a smoky eye, a light swipe of pink lipstick, and a sheer foundation that allows her freckles to peek through.

Photo: Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagic.

Makeup-free, those freckles are more glorious than ever, as she showed fans in a recent sun-soaked selfie.

Instagram

Gabrielle Union
With her own hair-care line and a nonstop stream of outstanding red carpet beauty moments, Gabrielle Union is a certified beauty guru.

The star has become the queen of the makeup-free selfie over on her Instagram, too, and you can see why. That glowing skin! Those freckles! She and Meghan Markle are making a very good case to never cover freckles with makeup again.

Instagram

Rihanna
As the founder of one of the most innovative beauty brands ever, it's no surprise Rihanna rocks graphic white liner like a total pro.

Photo: Bertrand Rindoff Petroff/Getty Images..

But that doesn't mean she won't strip away the lashes and liner on her day off. Sure, her motto is "more is more," but for now, less is looking pretty damn good, too.

Lily Collins
Our queen of retro beauty, you'll never spot Collins on a red carpet without the eyeshadow trend of the week on her lids.

Photo: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images.

But when she's off-duty and at home, you can bet she's basking in her post-facial, no-makeup glow.

Yara Shahidi
Sure, she makes every red carpet worth watching for her bold eye choices and curly bobs...

Photo: Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic.

But as a fresh-faced 18-year-old, it's this radiant glow she might just wear best.

Tracee Ellis Ross
Whether it's the Oscars, the Golden Globes, or the Emmys, Ross always shows up serving head-to-toe glamour.

Photo: Jon Kopaloff/WireImage.

But in her downtime, you'll find her looking just as beautiful with nothing more than a little SPF on.

Christina Aguilera
Nearly as identifiable as her legendary falsetto, Aguilera's red lipstick and winged eyeliner have been a huge part of her signature look for the last 20 years.

So when people got wind of her Paper Magazine cover story — in which Aguilera is bare-faced with her freckles peeking through — we all did a double take. The consensus: beautiful (no matter what they say).

Gal Gadot
Even before landing the fitting role of Revlon's global ambassador, Gadot earned a permanent spot as our red lip hero.

Photo: Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic.

To the surprise of no one, Wonder Woman is just as powerful without her concealer as she is with her lasso.

Leighton Meester
Historically speaking, Meester has never been one to get as glammed up as the characters she plays on TV — but that doesn't mean she doesn't know when to bring the bold.

Photo: Mireya Acierto/Getty Images.

If anyone could convince you to forego the foundation today, it's her. That's what we call a glow.

Nathalie Emmanuel
This Game of Thrones actress is often the focus of our bold lip infatuation — and when she pairs hers with a bold set of eyebrows, she can do no wrong.

Photo: Charles McQuillan/Getty Images.

Getting a glimpse at Emmanuel without a stitch of Westeros makeup is rare, but the sight has triggered the sudden urge to hunt down her dermatologist. Can you blame us?

Tyra Banks
It's safe to say Banks is pretty familiar with makeup — she even has her own cosmetics line, called Tyra Beauty — and has perfected countless looks throughout her career as a model, businesswoman, and TV host.

Photo: Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage.

One thing's for certain: Her signature smize isn't going anywhere, makeup or no makeup. While on vacation in Cape Cod, Banks shared a shot of bare skin, beachy curls, and a smirk.

@tyrabanks

Julianne Hough
The dancer-slash-actress-slash-singer is known for her barefaced selfies almost as much as she is for her glam red carpet looks — and she looks equally flawless in both.

Photo: Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic.

Hough's honeymoon with husband Brooks Laich isn't the only thing worth swooning over — her sun-kissed skin, DGAF ponytail, and bold brows are #goals, too.

@juleshough

Jennifer Lopez
Over the years, Jenny from the block has perfected the red carpet formula: chiseled cheekbones, smoky eyes, and a polished manicure.

Photo: Taylor Hill/FilmMagic.

But on Instagram, J. Lo often shows off a dewy, bare complexion with fierce brows — and it's just as good.

Sofia Vergara
The actress is known for going all-out on the red carpet. Barrel curls, bold lips, false lashes — the Modern Family star has done it all.

Photo: Matt Baron/REX/Shutterstock.

But Vergara isn't afraid to show her bare face to the world — even if she's home sick with a fever. The star may have been under the weather when this selfie was taken, but she still looks radiant as ever.

Madonna
Whether or not you grew up watching her "Material Girl" music video, you're probably still well-aware that she is known for her makeup theatrics — both on and offstage.

Photo: James Gourley/REX/Shutterstock.

The braids, the sunlight, and fresh face — all of it has us doing a double take. Is that Mother of Dragons or Madonna? Either way, she looks good.

Heidi Klum
The model, who loves to express herself with makeup, posted a side-by-side selfie to show her fans her gorgeously bare pre-Grammys face (seriously, how can we get that glow?) versus her red carpet-ready smoky eye and pink flush.

Photo via Instagram/@heidiklum

Adriana Lima
For almost two decades (!) we've been amazed by this Victoria's Secret Angel's beauty looks — and have a feeling that sentiment will hold true for years to come.

Photo: Laura Cavanaugh/Getty Images.

We've seen Lima boxing sans makeup all the time, but her this snap of her celebrating the holidays back home in Brazil feels extra-low key.

Photo: Via @adrianalima/Instagram.

Alicia Keys
Keys has worn some glam makeup looks throughout her career — like this one. Then, she publicly declared that she was done with makeup. "I don’t want to cover up anymore," she said. "Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing."

Photo: Lars Niki/Corbis/Getty Images.

The singer has stayed true to her word, rocking only a messy topknot and bare (and glowing, we might add) skin since.

Photo: C Flanigan/FilmMagic.

Gwyneth Paltrow
A Hollywood veteran — with an acting career that spans more than two decades — Paltrow is no stranger to the makeup chair. In her daily life, she usually opts for a natural, bronze-y look.

Photo: Cindy Ord/Getty Images.

In celebration of her 44th birthday, the actress uploaded this #nomakeupselfie to Instagram. She told us she's been inspired by the no-makeup movement, saying that she likes the message behind it: This is me. This is what I look like. This is where I am in time, and I embrace it.

Photo: Via @gwynethpaltrow/Instagram.

Kim Kardashian
Ah, the queen of contour. Between the K-clan's line of hair and makeup products and her countless headline-garnering looks, Kardashian has certainly made a name for herself in the beauty biz. Are we surprised her daily routine is comprised of a casual 25 products?

Photo: Michael Stewart/WireImage.

That's why, when Kardashian stepped out for the Balenciaga fashion show in Paris with a stripped-back makeup look, the entire internet sort of lost it.

Photo: Bertrand Rindoff Petroff/Getty Images.

Chrissy Teigen
She's our long-standing favorite person to follow on Twitter and we love the model's unfiltered approach to everything in life — her beauty routine included.

Photo: Angela Weiss/Getty Images.

In quite possibly the cutest picture to ever grace the world, Teigen shared this moment with baby Luna — with matching baby-soft, makeup-free skin to boot.

Photo: Via @chrissyteigen/Instagram.

Laverne Cox
When it comes to beauty, Cox is our hero. (And not just because she slays a red carpet like no other.)

Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage.

In an Instagram post, she wrote: "As an actress and a woman, I love being able to transform, to switch up my look when I want to with wigs, weaves, and bundles aplenty. I love this, too. It's about choices and options." Amen.

Photo: @lavernecox/Instagram.

Zendaya
In the last two years, the singer, actress, and dancer has won over our hearts with her willingness to take beauty risks — including doing her own makeup for red carpet events.

Photo: Sylvain Gaboury/Patrick McMullan.

What's even better, though, is how she strips down from the glam — and claps back at haters who, well, hate. When user @JaeBasstv recently tweeted that he was "hurt" by how different Zendaya looks without makeup, she quickly responded with a flawless makeup-free selfie, saying, "Terrifying honestly..."

Photo: @Zendaya/Twitter.

Amy Schumer
America's favorite funny girl isn't afraid to have real beauty conversations — in her own comedic way. To wit: her brilliant music video "Girl, You Don't Need Makeup."

Photo: George Pimentel/WireImage.

And she doesn't — and neither does anybody else.

Photo: Via @amyschumer/Instagram.

Kylie Jenner
Known for her statement-making beauty looks (like countless hair and lip transformations), Jenner has quickly become the face of Insta-famous makeup.

Photo: Gilbert Carrasquillo/Getty Images.

In an Instagram post, a fresh-faced Jenner revealed her bare skin — adorable freckles and all — proving that she is just as beautiful sans contour.

Photo: Via @kyliejenner/Instagram.

Beyoncé
In terms of hair and makeup (and, actually, everything else, ever), Queen B can do no wrong. Even other celebrities geek out in her presence, so we'll just leave it at that.

Photo: David Becker/Getty Images.

Okay, okay, technically Bey is wearing some makeup here, but she did ditch all her other products — mascara, eyeliner, shadow — for a super-striking look that lets her gorgeous skin shine.

Photo: Via @beyonce/Instagram.

Adele
The singer is as known for her signature cat-eye as she is for her gut-wrenching lyrics and a voice that could make angels cry.

Photo: Karwai Tang/WireImage.

But Adele can easily ditch the statement eyeliner — and all other makeup — for Instagram. And we dig it, big time.

Photo: Via @adele/Instagram.

Gwen Stefani
We flip out every time the pop star ditches her classic red lip — and totally lost our shit when she launched a makeup collaboration with Urban Decay — so, yeah, you could say she's a beauty icon.

Photo: Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage.

She snapped her own #wokeuplikethis moment, and now we just have one question: What moisturizer do you use, girl?

Photo: @gwenstefani/Instagram.

Katie Holmes
She is someone who always exudes natural beauty — and her makeup and fashion choices often give off that girl-next-door vibe, whether she's dolled up or dressed down.

Photo: Roy Rochlin/Getty Images.

If her latest Instagram posts within the past few weeks are any indication, we'd guess that Holmes isn't afraid of a bare-faced selfie. And people are loving it: One user wrote, "More beautiful without makeup – you cannot improve already-genuine beauty."

Photo: Via @katieholmes212/Instagram.

Priyanka Chopra
Chopra isn't only the proud owner of a belly-button ring: She's also our reigning queen of monochrome makeup, polished hair, and summery lip shades.

Photo: Noam Galai/Getty Images.

This rare makeup-free side of the star is just as gorgeous.

Demi Lovato
Lovato is always glowing, whether she's appearing on the red carpet or sharing one of her many barefaced selfies.

Photo: Kevin Mazur/Getty Images.

The singer's no-makeup selfie reveals exactly how Lovato looks while sunbathing on the beach, freckles and all. We just have one question: Who's her dermatologist — and how do we make an appointment?

Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?

Nwankwo Kanu left in tears as Arsenal medals & Olympic torch are stolen https://www.101greatgoals.com/news/nwankwo-kanu-left-in-tears-as-arsenal-medals-olympic-torch-are-stolen/ Former Arsenal star Nwankwo Kanu almost ‘broke down’ in tears after his medals and Olympic torch were stolen from his property in Lagos.

The Nigerian won several huge honours during his time with the Gunners and other clubs.

He won the Premier League and FA Cup twice during his time in north London as well as a community shield.

He also won the Champions League with Ajax and the UEFA Cup with Inter Milan.

Now, he’s at the centre of drama in his home country.

“I cannot understand why this happened to me”

That is because his medal collection and Olympic torch have been stolen.

It is said that the theft could be in relation to a hotel that Kanu owns which has been embroiled in a legal case.

“This is the saddest day of my life as I cannot understand why this happened to me,” Kanu explained as quoted by IOL. 

“All the medals I have earned, in addition to the Olympic torch that I cherished, are all gone and I don’t even know who to ask for all these prized assets.”

Another report from Guardian Nigeria branch spoke more about the legal case and explained how Kanu almost ‘broke down’ in tears.

They explain that the court case over his hotel has been going on since 2015 and it is over an alleged unrepaid bank loan.

However, a decision over the case has not yet been made and renovation is already going on at the hotel.

There were also some more quotes from Kanu himself.

“I am Kanu Nwankwo not a foreigner,” he explained.

“Right now I need my medals because they are what I will show my children that I served the country with all my heart when they grow up.

“They broke into my hotel without permission from the court. This is an injustice to me for a country I gave my best.”

Jumanji sequel welcomes Danny Glover to the jungle

Sony’s Jumanji 3 continues to welcome Hollywood icons past and present to the jungle. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the film’s most recent addition is none other than Danny Glover, who joins Danny DeVito and Awkwafina — not to mention the original cast — in the anticipated sequel.

Glover, best known for his role as Sergeant Roger Murtaugh opposite Mel Gibson’s Martin Riggs in the popular Lethal Weapon franchise, as well as for his performances in films such as Witness and The Color Purple, has a slew of projects on his plate at the moment. Though, the Jumanji sequel might just be the highest profile gig he’s had since 2009’s disaster feature 2012.

“From Awkafina to Danny DeVito to now one of my action heroes, Danny Glover — it’s been awesome having so many actors and OG legends raise their hands wanting to come and play in our Jumanji universe,” Dwayne Johnson told the outlet. “‘Who turns into who?’ will always be the fun magic sauce for our audience.”

Johnson officially announced the release date for the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel via his Instagram, revealing that Jumanji 3 is set for December 13, 2019. The film will see the return of the main cast that includes Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black along with director Jake Kasdan. The December 13th date will also give the movie at least a week in theaters before Star Wars: Episode IX is released.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle brought in over $960 million worldwide, over 3.5x the worldwide gross of the original film from 1995, and became Sony’s highest-grossing domestic release of all time (just barely passing 2002’s Spider-Man). The film was #1 for four weekends, including three in a row and was the first December wide release to be #1 on a February weekend since Titanic in 1998.

Get Inspired By The Community This Week At Light Stalking https://www.lightstalking.com/016-light-stalking-update/ As always, we want to say a big warm hello to all of the new members we got this week – yep all 210 of you! Wow, that really is a lot!

A lot has been happening this week on the forum, we have seen so much activity from you all that it is just awesome. So we hope to see you around the “ Introduce Yourself “, “ General Chit Chat ” and, of course, “ Shark Tank ” forums.

 

This week we had a weekly challenge with the theme of Favourites . This was Tersha ‘s magnificent idea and basically was created so we could all enjoy a collection of the best photos produced by our community – thanks again Tersha for coming up with a brilliant challenge. 

Among other things, the

Today, among other things, we are bringing you our favourites from the Favourites Challenge!

Photo Of The Week – January 14, 2019 The Happy Policeman – Lenny Wollitz

Photo of the week was a tough one and really had Kent in a bit of a conundrum. Here's what Kent had to say about his choice this week:

Whoa! This was a very difficult week to be the POTW Judge, as you Lightstalkers pulled out all of the stops on me! I finally narrowed it down to three selections.

“The Happy Policeman” by Lenny Wollitz.

“Hiding in Plain Sight” by Erik Fransman.

“Magnificent Pose of a Young Buck” by Bruce Gordon.

Each image had strengths that made it worthy of the POTW! The Happy Policeman has immediate visual impact. It's a simple shot, and yet it sticks with you. It really sticks with you!

Hiding in Plain Sight is a carefully crafted, professional level, magazine-style portrait. It is exquisite in my opinion.

Magnificent Pose of a Young Buck is a beautiful example of a top-level wildlife photograph- that only a photographer with particular knowledge and patience could capture.

It was a really tough choice.

After much internal debate- I gave this week's POTW award to Lenny for his eye-catching portrait of the smiling policeman.

Congratulations Lenny.

Definitely congratulation to Lenny for this weeks Photo of the Week and our thanks to Kent for making the tough choices week in and week out.

Challenge!

Let's do this, Weekend Photography Challenge #416 Favourites. What a wonderful collection of simply amazing photographs from the community.

We encourage you to go and trawl through the whole challenge and revel in the talent that is on display. Here is what Federico has to say about just a few of the wonderful images posted to the challenge. 

Photo by Joe Baumann

This magnificent shot has a lot of interesting elements that make it quite a catch. The colors combine extremely well together, the moon plays an amazing role as an element of revelation here. Also, the composition is great and the leading lines from the clouds make it easy to read.

Photo by Frog Daily

This is a really great example of thoughtful composition executed to a very sublime level. The sea lion seems so peaceful and the composition makes it look even more calm.

Photo by Ed

The great thing about photography is the stories it can imbue from a single object. Here this mere piece of wood at the supermarket, seen from the right perspective, turns out to be an interesting and even revealing object.

Photo by Bhushan

A striking image of star trails that looks more like delicate clouds in the sky. Here Bhushan took a total of 360 photos to achieve this beautiful final composite.

Photo by Dave Watkins

Well executed macro photographs require great skill and a lot of patience as well. Here Dave, after reading an article written by Jasenka made this amazing shot that is not only a favourite for him, but also for us.

Photo by Bobbie

It doesn't matter if your year was slow Bobbie, as we evolve in photography, improving our “keepers” ratio become more and more difficult. This is a really nice shot showing exactly what was happening there via your own vision.

Photo by Tersha

Spectacular! It actually takes a while to notice the beautiful revelation here, thanks for sharing this serendipitous image with us.

Photo by Tom M

Fairs are always a great spot to take photos, and here we have a beautiful example of the way photography rules at capturing both light and time.

There are so many other beautiful images that everyone has posted from 2018. A very big thank you to everyone who took the tough decision to choose a favourite from 2018 and, as always, thanks to Tersha for another inspiring Weekend Photography Challenge theme.

Discussions From The Community

For me, printing is a completely different world that requires a different understanding of light (just like video) in order to excel at it. This past week Ed raised a very interesting and not easily answerable question about paper, canvas, steel or acrylic printing. If you have anything that you'd love to share (even if they are questions or doubts) related to that, please share them with us here at this post .

Some nice photographs where shared as well in the general chit chat forum, here is a nice composition of a red house by Antonio and this is a nice and small lily pond leaf by our friend Graham .

LilyPond Leaf – Graham Hart

Get closer if you want to see all the tiny graffiti Graham captured in a thick wall of bamboo trees. Bamboo has the fame of being able to grow extremely fast ( some species can grow almost a meter in a single day ), and for some other reason, people love to engrave them with their stuff while still planted on the ground as we can see in this shot .

If you are curious about how John Thompson looked 33 years ago, then take a look at this self-portrait he shared with us earlier this week . It is amazing how photography enables us to cheat time, at least in an image format.

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Improving as a photographer is hard, believe me, and one of the best possible ways to improve is via critique (received and even given). We are talking of course about constructive criticism focused on the photographs and not the photographers. We are totally against negative and poisonous comments; for us, feedback is meant to help people become better photographers.

We have a special place focused entirely on this, and we call it Shark Tank , but don't be scared of the fierce name, it is a friendly place.

Here you can share your images and also you can share your opinions on others' images. Here are some of the most interesting shot shared during last week on the Tank:

One More Thing…

Kent had such a difficult time with choosing the Photo of the Week this week, and for good reason. Here was our runner up – a beautiful portrait from Erik Fransman. Here's what Erik had to say about his work:

Hiding In Plain Sight – Erik Fransman

“This is a portrait of my uncle. He is an artist and he specializes in colorful light panels. Many of his artworks have a Jewish connection, like the monument for the victims (women) of the WWII concentration camp Ravensbrück.

Two days ago I was at his studio, filming him for a documentary I am working on. When I first asked him to participate in the film he did not want to do it. When I asked him why he did not want to participate, his answer was that as a Jew he does not want to show that openly. Then I asked him, how can you say that? The Ravensbrück monument is monumental. Very big.

His answer to that question was: I can hide my identity behind my art. The people do not know it is mine. In his studio, he walked passed two colorful panels and was backlit almost silhouette. So I decided to make a portrait of him in silhouette, hiding in plain sight in front of is art, not behind it.”

Thank you so much Erik for inspiring us with your story and image.

Today We Leave You With

Our third runner up in our Photo of the Week was from Bruce Gordon – and one of his favourites for 2018…it is also one of ours.

Magnificent Pose of a Young Buck – Bruce Gordon

Please remember to join our friendly photography community if you haven't done so already, also please check out the latest Weekend Photography Challenge, on Big and Small .

And as always, If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below. 

Happy image making!

Yes, you can update your Godox firmware on the mac, and here’s how to do it http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Diyphotographynet/~3/8Zpd-9QV-24/ As good as Godox equipment can be, it has one fatal flaw which puts many photographers off using their equipment. There’s no easy, native way to update the firmware on a Mac. And firmware updates do come fairly regularly for their various models of flashes and triggers. It’s a question I see pop up regularly […]

The Next Level of Influence: 30 Essential Influencer Marketing Statistics http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/OnlineMarketingSEOBlog/~3/v4ePCtZ3DZI/ 30 Essential Influencer Marketing Statistics

30 Essential Influencer Marketing Statistics Pop Quiz: When influencer marketing is done right, who wins? a) Your brand b) The influencers c) Your audience d) All of the above In case you missed the last few classes, the answer is D. In the ideal influencer marketing engagement, your brand gets a boost in credibility, authority, and exposure to a new audience. The influencer gets a cool content asset to promote, association with other thought leaders, and is able to grow their influence in their niche. And the audience gets awesome content neither the influencer nor the brand could have produced on their own. Getting to that “everyone wins” stage requires strategic planning and execution, though. You can’t just throw money at someone with a big Instagram following and expect results. Our agency was a pioneer in B2B influencer marketing, and we’re invested in taking it to the next level. Our approach has seen amazing results for Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike. To help you reach the next level of influencer marketing — what we call Influence 2.0 — this post combines our experience with original research from other thought leaders in the industry:
  1. Influencer Marketing: Science, Strategy & Success (Zine)
  2. (Onalytica and Smart Insights)
  3. Two Sides of the Same Coin: Exploring the Brand and Influencer Relationship in Influencer Marketing (Activate)

  6. (Linqia)
  7. Sponsored Spenders Survey (Collective Bias)
Read on to upgrade your influencer marketing and get ready for what comes next. 30 Essential Influencer Marketing Statistics Influencer Marketing Works
  1. Over half of brands say influencer content outperforms brand-created content. Only 6% said it underperformed brand content. 6
  2. 78% of consumers will buy when recommended by someone they feel they know and trust. 1
  3. 67% of consumers have no negative reaction to sponsored content. 7
  4. 58% of brands have seen improved brand awareness and perception from influencer marketing campaigns. 2
  5. 54% saw an increase in leads and revenue. 2
Influencer marketing works because the message comes from people your audience already trusts. It also works for awareness and brand positioning, but also for driving revenue. As our CEO Lee Odden defines it: "Influencer marketing activates internal and industry experts with engaged networks to co-create content of mutual value and achieve measurable business goals." [bctt tweet="#InfluencerMarketing activates internal and industry experts with engaged networks to co-create #content of mutual value and achieve measurable business goals. - @leeodden" username="toprank"] Very Few Influencer Marketing Programs are Fully Mature
  1. Only 10% of organizations are fully mature with influencer marketing; that is, running a cross-functional program. 4
  2. 46% are using influencer marketing tactically, but have not integrated it across marketing. 4
  3. 57% of marketers say influencer marketing will be integrated in all marketing activities by 2020. 5
  4. 62% are going to spend more on influencer marketing in the year to come. Only 4% will spend less. 4
Marketers have a ways to go with influencer marketing sophistication. Investing more time and budget is a good start, but sophistication really comes from integrating influencers across your marketing initiatives on an ongoing basis, from strategy to content to promotion and beyond. [bctt tweet="#B2B #influencermarketing is still in its infancy—which means there are plenty of opportunities to begin implementing it today. @azeckman" username="toprank"] Sophisticated Influencer Marketing Involves Deeper Relationships
  1. Nearly half of marketers are working on long-term campaigns w/influencers. 2
  2. 40% of influencers say they’re in long-term partnerships. 2
  3. 48% of B2C influencer programs are ongoing, but only 11% of B2B are. 5
  4. Only 29% of influencers are asked for their opinion on content direction. 1
  5. 55% of marketers say content strategy and direction are decided well before influencers are added. 1
  6. Only 25% of influencers said brands shared engagement goals with them. 1
Building long-term relationships with influencers is crucial for sustainable influencer marketing. The relationship-building should include working with the influencers on content strategy, direction, and engagement goals. As Rani Mani, Adobe's Head of Social Influence Enablement, recently told us in an interview: "We at Adobe pride ourselves on cultivating and nurturing long term relationships with our influencers. We look at it as dating with an eye towards long term commitment which means we are always looking to establish a 'give to get' exchange where all parties come out ahead." [bctt tweet="We look at #influencermarketing as dating with an eye towards long term commitment, which means we are always looking to establish a 'give to get' exchange where all parties come out ahead. - @ranimani0707" username="toprank"] Influence Is More than Follower Count
  1. Only 25% of consumers are more likely to buy a product when someone with over 1 million followers recommends it. 1
  2. As reach grows, engagement tends to drop. 1,ooo-10,000 is the sweet spot for engagement. 1
It’s time to rethink what makes a good influencer, especially for B2B brands. Reach is only one part of the equation; resonance and relevance are even more important than size of audience. Not long ago, our own Ashley Zeckman, Senior Director of Digital Strategy, wrote: "Social reach should be a consideration for your B2B influencer marketing program, but not the only one. Sometimes the influencers with the largest reach may not be engaging their audience in a meaningful way that leads to more users connecting with your content." Look for people who are actively engaging with their audience, and are talking about topics relevant to your brand. [bctt tweet="#Social reach should be a consideration for your #B2B #influencermarketing program, but not the only one. @azeckman" username="toprank"] Aim for Content Co-Creation, Not Sponsorship
  1. 73% of influencers said they put more effort into content when they’re passionate about the brand/product. 1
  2. Only 27% said they put in more effort when the campaign involves financial compensation. 1
  3. Only 34% expect financial compensation. 1
  4. However, 65% expect some form of reward. 1
  5. Only 14% said being paid well was the most important reason to work with a brand. 2
  6. 52% say building their influence on key topics is most important reason to be an influencer. 2
  7. Top criteria for influencers choosing brands? Most important is “I love the brand and already post about them organically.” 3
While financial compensation can be part of your influencer marketing strategy, it shouldn’t be the whole strategy. Money can’t buy genuine enthusiasm and emotional investment. Look for influencers who are already excited about your brand, are eager to share their thoughts and expertise on a relevant topic, and work with them to create content you both can be proud of. [bctt tweet="While financial compensation can be part of your #influencermarketing strategy, it shouldn’t be the whole strategy. Money can’t buy genuine enthusiasm and emotional investment. @NiteWrites" username="toprank"] Level Up Your Measurement
  1. 78% of marketers surveyed use influencers to build brand awareness. 3
  2. 45% cite sales conversion as their primary goal. 3
  3. 5% of marketers surveyed are tracking engagement rate, while only 45.92% track sales conversion. 3
  4. 37% of influencers cite brand awareness as their goal, while 22% cite sales conversion. 3
  5. 74% of marketers surveyed said sales conversion was one of their top goals for influencer marketing. 5
  6. 76% of marketers surveyed said determining ROI was their top concern. 6
Influencer marketing isn’t just for brand awareness. Like every other marketing tactic, your influencer efforts can contribute to revenue and that impact should be properly attributed. It’s important to make revenue measurement part of your initial planning and goal-setting. [bctt tweet="#InfluencerMarketing focuses on the entire customer journey, driving demand, leads and to help with nurture. @AmishaGandhi @SAPAriba" username="toprank"] The Next Evolution of Influence As these statistics show, it’s time to rethink what influencer marketing is and what it can do. It’s more than one-off sponsorship deals with celebrity contributors to boost brand awareness. Influence 2.0 means finding the true influencers for your audience. It means developing long-term relationships to co-create valuable content worth getting excited about. And it means setting goals throughout the marketing funnel and being equipped to measure them, from engagement down to revenue. When you can do all of that, everybody wins. Is your B2B organization just getting started with influencer marketing? There are six things you absolutely need to know.

In my next series of posts I’m going to dig into getting the most out of these easily overlooked, yet extremely powerful functions hidden in plain sight. We’ll start with the most obvious, but there’s more hidden here and there within the Library module.

The Library Filter Bar

Located above Grid view in the Library module, the Library Filter bar is the most powerful and useful filtering tool in Lightroom. The key to using the filter is understanding that it only filters the currently selected source, whether that is folders, collections or your entire catalog. You select the source first, then apply the desired filter to see the results.

The Library filter consists of four parts, a filter by text function (Text), a filter by photos’ attributes (Attribute), a filter by photo’s metadata (Metadata), and a drop-down menu for accessing saved Library Filter presets. The Text, Attribute, and Metadata sections can be used independently or in conjunction with each other.

The best way to learn how to use these is to explore and try out the various options, but before doing that there are a couple of keyboard shortcuts you should file away to keep you out of trouble. The first is CMD+L (PC: Ctrl+L) which will turn on or turn off the Library Filter, so if you are playing around and want to escape the filter simply employ that shortcut and you’re back to the unfiltered view. The second is the backslash (\) key which hides and reveals the Library Filter bar itself. This is useful when using the Library Filter and you want to hide it to see more of your photos, but I’ve seen it cause frustration when people hit that key by accident and can’t find the filter bar. Here’s a bonus tip, in any module press CMD+/ (PC: Ctrl+/) to display common keyboard shortcuts for the module you are in, and then click anywhere to dismiss that overlay.

Text-based Filters

A practical example of the Library that I use frequently is a text-based filter to find HDR photos based on filename. Here’s how:

Step One : Select the desired source containing the photos you want to filter. In my example I selected All Photographs in the Catalog panel to filter the entire library.

Step Two : Press CMD+F (PC: Ctrl+F) to open the Text filter with the search field active for text input. This will also switch to Grid view if not there already.

Step Three : Type in the text you want to filter the results on. In my case I typed hdr because Lightroom automatically adds those letters to the filenames of all merged HDR photos it creates, as does the HDR mode in the Lightroom CC camera module. As soon as you start typing the filter starts working in real time.

Step Four : Refine the filter. By default, that filter is set to Any Searchable Field, which may cast the net wider than you intend. Click the (tiny) drop-down arrow next to the magnifying glass icon in that text field and choose Filename (for my example) to force the filter to only use photo file names. You can achieve the same result by clicking the drop-down where it says Any Searchable Field and changing it there. The same goes for changing the Contains All option to something that better fits your needs.

Pretty cool? I most often use that when working in a folder full of brackets that I am merging to HDR. After setting all the various brackets to be merged I enable the filter so that I only see the final results in the folder for processing further. When finished, press CMD+L (PC: Ctrl+L) to disable the filter.

Ok, so that’s just a taste of what the Library Filter can do, and next week we’ll move on to the Attribute and Metadata section before wrapping up with a few hidden filters you may have overlooked.

Haiti's isolated and forgotten village – in pictures https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2019/jan/16/haitis-isolated-and-forgotten-village-in-pictures Near the bottom of the island of Hispaniola in south-east Haiti is a forgotten village, cut off from its own country, and slowly emptying as its residents leave. As well as health services or electricity, Boucan Ferdinand also lost its only road to the nearest town, Bois Negresse, in devastating floods in 2004. Some of its residents have left for the capital, Port-au-Prince, while others cling onto a precarious life. Many have crossed illegally into the more prosperous neighbouring Dominican Republic

My 2019 Goals in Life and Travel http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/landlopers/~3/Hr9HqeXVPZA/my-2019-goals Matt Long Grand Canyon

This post is probably a couple of weeks overdue, but I wasn’t mentally ready yet to tackle it. Posts like this one require a great deal of emotional energy and, frankly, I haven’t been up to it lately. But it’s something I need to do for myself, if no one else as it really does help me organize my thoughts and get ready for a new year. It’s far too easy to fall into familiar and comfortable routines, at least it is for me, but by starting out the year with a clear roadmap – or at least a solid set of goals – I feel that I’m able to break out of that routine and to achieve some real accomplishments. At least, that’s the idea. Looking back at previous attempts at setting myself up for success, the results have been decidedly mixed. Some years were better than others, but at least I tried. At least I started out on the right foot mindful to make some corrections to my own life while also looking ahead at what opportunities might be out there. With all of this in mind, I once again want to share some of my personal goals; ways I want to improve, as well as some destinations I would love to visit. I don’t anticipate visiting all or even most of these places, but it’s great to have goals in mind and it’s always fun to see how far down the list I can get.

Self-Improvement

Positivity – Online I try to keep things as positive as possible, but in real life I’m far too prone to melancholy. I frankly need to learn how to better deal with bad news or when things don’t go the way I want them to. For the last 42 years or so, negative events have tended to leave me in a deep funk that can last for days. During this time I don’t really want to do much of anything, so it’s an attitude that simply feeds on itself. While I know I’m not going to make these feelings disappear completely, I do want to learn how to better deal with them.

Originality – I think I’ve fallen into a travel rut, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it’s not good either. In 2019 I need to make sure that I stop being so regimented, and put down the guidebooks and just go off and do my own thing. I think I’ve become so obsessed with documenting everything and making sure I don’t miss something “important” that I sometimes miss the most crucial aspect of travel – the spirit of discovery.

Patience – I know it’s a virtue, but it’s not a quality I possess in large abundance. This can be especially problematic while traveling. It starts at the airport for me, I hate waiting in lines and the security queue is when my patience first starts to falter. I get annoyed at the people who have no idea what they are doing and hold up everyone behind them in the process. This continues on to boarding the plane with the same confused people strolling aimlessly through the cabin. You see where I am going with this. I need to learn to take a deep breath and just relax. I will get to my destination and there is no reason to be upset. No matter what happens, nothing THAT bad will result, so take a moment to breathe and assess.

Travel Aspirations

Switzerland and Portugal – I’ve seen most of Western Europe but not all of it, which is why I’ve included both Portugal and Switzerland on this list. While I have visited Switzerland, it was for just 2 days and that’s it. If Instagram has taught me anything it’s that Switzerland appears to be both incomparably beautiful and full of cheese, which are fantastic reasons to visit in my humble opinion. Add in vibrant cities, chocolate and fancy watches and I think it sounds like a perfect trip. Portugal on the other hand has completely eluded me and I don’t know why. I know many people who have visited, they all love it and I’ve never read anything negative about it. While I’m a little nervous about the food (I don’t eat fish or seafood) the pastries alone might finally lure me over in 2019.

Tasmania – I have been very fortunate to have spent a fair amount of time traveling around Australia and while I have much more to experience, I have been to almost every Australian state. Almost. One has eluded me and based on all of the photos I’ve seen, I know that when I finally do visit it’ll be love at first sight. Visiting Australia is always special, but Tasmania in particular has piqued my interest for years. Slightly remote, amazingly beautiful and somewhat different from the mainland, Tasmania is an intriguing place. Of all of these destinations, I really do hope that I can make this one happen in 2019.

Arctic – I love expeditionary trips, whether it’s to Antarctica, the Galapagos or some other far-flung place. I enjoy feeling like a real explorer and not just a tourist and while I’ve gotten close, a true expedition to the Arctic is high on my to-do list. There are many different ways to reach the Arctic through a few different countries, but no matter how I get up there I’d love to spend a couple of weeks exploring this hard to reach part of the world.

Back to Africa – Africa is infectious, of that there can be no doubt. I’ve been privileged enough to have visited several times and I once again feel the siren call beckoning. While I’d love to revisit places I know I love, like South Africa, I’d also like to visit new places and enjoy different experiences. As a lover of wildlife, a gorilla trek is near the top of my wishlist, whether in Uganda or Rwanda the promise of trekking amongst these gorgeous giants is almost too appealing to ignore.

Why I Combine the Two

It may seem a little strange that I combine such very personal life goals with travel aspirations, but for me they are one and the same. I made this my career almost 7 years ago and while it has had its ups and downs, I wouldn’t change a thing. I also combine them because of how strongly they impact each other. When I get down, my ability to work and seek out new business plummets, only making things worse. The various aspects of our lives are not discrete elements. They all interact and how we approach one aspect of our life necessarily affects others. Intellectually I understand this relationship, but managing it in real life is a much more challenging process, one I hope to improve upon this year.

What are some of your goals and challenges for the New Year?

Selfies and Pictures of Food for Everyone: Change to Instagram Makes Posting to Multiple Accounts Possible https://www.lightstalking.com/selfies-and-pictures-of-food-for-everyone-change-to-instagram-makes-posting-to-multiple-accounts-possible/ Instagram just made a huge change that should make life easier for social media mavens around the world.

You can now post your selfies and videos to multiple accounts simultaneously instead of having to log out of each one and posting it manually to each individual account.

DPReview reports that the option to post to multiple accounts pops up when you are prompted to add the caption, geotag the pic, or add hashtags to it.

For their part, DPReview reports seeing the change first appear on January 13. This prompted an inquiry from the publication to Instagram about whether or not this was a permanent change.

As many of you might know, Instagram often tests out new features on its audience before rolling them out on a large scale – if at all.

Easily one of the more requested features, the ability to post to multiple Instagram accounts from one device really optimizes the process of social media management for a lot of us out there that juggle multiple accounts.

Not only does this save time, but also it means that you can make more accounts without worrying about logging in and out of each one in order to post a simple update. It’s a real boon for companies, basically, but individual as well. No need to reapply filters, add the caption, then tag the heck out of it multiple times. With this change, you can literally produce industrial quantities of selfies and food porn in theory. What a time to be alive.

DPReview reports that this update only seems to be available for iOS devices at the moment. TechCrunch confirmed with Instagram that this is a feature the company is rolling out on a larger, more permanent basis so be on the lookout for this in the future.

Do you use Instagram? Do you own multiple accounts? What do you think of this change? Let us know in the comments.

NASA Probe Snaps Selfie of Earth from 71 Million Miles Away https://www.lightstalking.com/nasa-probe-snaps-selfie-of-earth-from-71-million-miles-away/ Love ‘em or hate ‘em, selfies are a byproduct of the sheer ubiquity of cameras.

And part of the reason for this ubiquity is that optical technology has advanced so much – and become so much cheaper in the process – over the past two decades that it is astounding.

Image from NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona/Lockheed Martin Space.

Of course, one area where optical technology has really delivered some non-selfie dividends for humanity is in outer space where we receive photographs of a history-making nature on what seems like a daily basis.

Not to be left out of the selfie game, Earth and its satellite the moon were recently captured by the awesomely named OSIRIS-REx, a probe sent to explore an asteroid named Bennu.

The selfie, taken from a distance of some 71 million miles away from Earth, transforms the blue marble in a white grain of sand. You can even make out the moon – it is the little dot beside our planet.

The brightest white dot in the picture is actually the asteroid Bennu itself per a report in Thrillist. It seems to be hogging a lot of the screen real estate but, as many are pointing out, what is mind boggling to consider are the distances between these white dots and the vastness of space between them. It does justice to the phrase “far out” at a minimum.

These pictures, taken while the OSIRIS-REx is en route to study Bennu, are being compared to the “Pale Blue Dot” photos taken by Voyager 1. That collection was taken a while ago and was done from 3.7 billion miles away.

The team behind the OSIRIS-REx even promised that these won’t be the last photos we receive from the probe so be on the outlook for more amazing astrophotography in the near future. Are you a fan of astrophotography? Let us know about some of your favorite missions (and photos) in the comments.

The #10YearChallenge Is Harder on Women Than You Think http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/geeksugar/~3/gy1UUJXzflU/What-10YearChallenge-45680798

Casual Diversity

One of the first internet challenges to go viral this year on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter is #HowHardDidAgingHitYou, or the #10YearChallenge. The challenge requires users to share a photo from 10 years ago side-by-side with a current photo. Millennials and Gen-Zers have participated with gusto - mostly because their decade-old picture is of awkward pubescence or wide-eyed youth, and though they are older, they are still "young." But this activity is likely a lot less fun for older women - especially those without access to a glam squad, or cosmetic procedures - because it reduces conversations about age to physical appearances. Recently, prize-winning French writer Yann Moix (age 50) sparked outrage for his, well, outrageous comments on:

1. How he was "incapable" of loving women over 50

2. How they were "invisible" to him (they are "too, too old")

3. And the pièce de résistance, "[t]he body of a 25-year-old woman is extraordinary. The body of a woman of 50 is not extraordinary at all".

The reality is that aging hits women harder than men in many aspects of modern life. In light of the way this year has begun, it's a good time to reflect on how women and men are forced to age differently.

"How aging actually hits women is far more insidious than feeling bad about wrinkles and stray grays (though that is harmful enough.)"

Let's start with appearance. For women, concerns with body image encompass being told we should look eternally youthful. We are taught to live at war with our age. The near-constant message we receive is to prevent and deny everything about aging. Lie about the number. Gray roots are dreadful. Your face must be as creaseless as a freshly starched shirt. Any natural signs of getting older are embarrassing and need to be combated immediately - from the smallest sag to the tiniest droop. Social media has been fundamental in perpetuating unrealistic body images, enabling and encouraging us to be constant voyeurs, and perpetuating Facetuned (touched-up) images that are unrealistic. Studies suggest this obsession has exacerbated mental health issues in younger users fixated on their body image, and it certainly doesn't help adult women feel better about themselves, either. Through targeted ads, Facebook and Instagram have profited from and enriched corporations that promise to help you regain your radiance (apparently, only the young are radiant) by erasing fine lines and wrinkles overnight. Booming market capitalizations owe much to the pillaging of women's insecurities.

I'm all for women making their own decisions, including about their bodies. Like every woman, I have internalized many social expectations around gender and age, and am certainly not shaming anyone for facelifts or Botox. These choices say little about them, but do speak volumes about the world we inhabit. In her book Hunger, Roxane Gay asks, "[W]hat does it say about our culture that the desire for weight loss is considered a default feature of womanhood?" Social media challenges like #HowHardDidAgingHitYou enable this culture to thrive, such that the desire to look young has also become a default feature of womanhood.

How aging actually hits women is far more insidious than feeling bad about wrinkles and stray grays (though that is harmful enough.) Older women face increased discrimination at the workplace, with gender-based mistreatment peaking for women in their 40s.They also suffer a hiring disadvantage. Older women get fewer callbacks than older men, or younger applicants of both sexes, seriously hampering their retirement security. As far as Hollywood is concerned, Amy Schumer's Last F*ckable Day sketch encapsulates how a woman's employability is directly tied to her sexual currency. Other biases around older women include the perception of them as sexless, even though sexual ability does not decrease with age for women.

A social change in our attitude toward aging - including dissociating it from physical appearances - is crucial for both women and men. But the myopic #10YearChallenge excludes the more profound experiences of growth and change that accompany getting older. Perhaps shows like Big Little Lies, movies like The Favourite and Girls Trip, all starring women in their forties and older, are signaling a shift in the way that women are represented. Nonetheless, older women remain at a social disadvantage - even our everyday language is more ageist toward women. A simple way to make getting older more holistic and inclusive for all women could be to rebrand it as the #LookHowFarYouHaveComeChallenge. This might seem trivial, but a linguistic overhaul may spark the cultural change we need.

Snapchat's parent company is losing its CFO after less than a year, and the stock is plummeting (SNAP) http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/alleyinsider/silicon_alley_insider/~3/2jB3LOWJVV4/tim-stone-cfo-snapchat-parent-company-snap-quits-2019-1 Evan Spiegel

  • Tim Stone, the CFO of Snapchat parent company Snap Inc., is quitting.
  • Stone, who came to Snap from Amazon, only took the job in May 2018. He is walking away from most of a $20 million pay package.
  • Snap has said that Stone will be sticking with the company through at least its quarterly earnings call on February 5th. 
  • The company's stock has cratered around 8.5% on the news.
  • Snap says that it's Q4 2018 financial results are likely to be "slightly favourable to the top end of our previously reported quarterly guidance ranges."

Tim Stone, the CFO of Snapchat parent company Snap, is quitting.

On Tuesday, the exec notified the beleaguered messaging app company of his intention to quit "to pursue other opportunities," Snap said in a SEC filing, becoming the latest in a growing line of Snap execs to part ways with the company. Snap's stock price is down around 8.5% in after-hours trading following the news. 

Snapchat has struggled in recent years as Facebook-owned Instagram has aggressively cloned its features, siphoning off users and stifling the app's growth.

Stone, a former Amazon executive, had joined Snap less than a year ago, in May 2018, following a disastrous quarter for the company He replaced the company's first CFO, Andrew Vollero. It's not clear exactly why Stone is leaving now, though Snap says it is "not related to any disagreement with us on any matter relating to our accounting, strategy, management, operations, policies, regulatory matters, or practices."

Stone was brought on with a $20 million pay package, scheduled to vest over four years — most of which he's now forfeiting. $1 million in "sign-on" grants vested six months after he came on board, meaning the money is his, but he's leaving well before the rest of the $19 million vested. 

His exit is the latest of a growing line of Snap execs to jump ship from the company in recent months.

On Monday, Business Insider reported that the company's HR head Jason Halbert was leaving. Head of global strategic partnerships Elizabeth Herbst-Brady left earlier in January. Chief Strategy Ifficer Imran Khan bailed in September 2018. Other high-profile departures include communications VP Mary Ritti, product head Tom Conrad, and sales head Jeff Lucas.

Here's what Snap said in its SEC filing:

"On January 15, 2019, Tim Stone, our Chief Financial Officer and principal financial officer, notified us of his intention to resign to pursue other opportunities. Mr. Stone has confirmed that this transition is not related to any disagreement with us on any matter relating to our accounting, strategy, management, operations, policies, regulatory matters, or practices (financial or otherwise). Mr. Stone’s last day has not been determined. Mr. Stone will continue to serve as Chief Financial Officer to assist in the search for a replacement and an effective transition of his duties, including through our scheduled full year 2018 financial results announcement."

Reached for comment, Snap spokesperson Russ Caditz-Peck sent Business Insider the following statement, which was sent from CEO Evan Spiegel to the whole company:

Hi Team,

I wanted to let you know that Tim Stone, our CFO, has decided to leave Snap.

Tim has made a big impact in his short time on our team and we are very grateful for all of his hard work. I know we have all benefitted from his customer focus and the way he has encouraged all of us to operate as owners.

Tim will remain at Snap to help with the transition, including through our Q4 and full year earnings call on February 5th.

Tim’s transition is not related to any disagreement with us on any matter relating to our accounting, strategy, management, operations, policies, regulatory matters, or practices (financial or otherwise).

Please join me in wishing Tim all the best in his future endeavors!

Also in the SEC filing, Snap said that it expects to report financial results for Q4 2018 are "slightly favorable to the top end of our previously reportedly quarterly guidance ranges."

The Pastel Hair Color Trend Taking Over Hollywood https://www.r29.com/en-us/2018/11/216052/celebrity-pink-hair-trend?utm_source=feed&utm_medium=rss

From Barbie dolls to baby showers to modern-day millennials to Janelle Monáe videos, the color pink has long had a fan base that's diverse and ever-changing. Right now Hollywood is showing the color some love with stars like Julia Roberts, Kylie Jenner, Amber Rose, and Halsey all dyeing their hair shades like baby, flamingo, and even neon Post-it pink.

Although it seems like a great shade for someone just starting to tinker with hair dye, there are a few things to keep in mind if you're looking to channel your inner Jem. This isn't a shade that can go on just anyone, as hairstylist Lewis Pallett, who just dyed Suki Waterhouse 's hair pink, told us. "Brunettes and dark blondes will get a completely different shade of pink compared to people with light or bleached blonde, and dark brown may not get any difference at all," Pallett says.

And so if you do have darker hair, a brighter, bolder pink would be an easier color to achieve as opposed to a pastel. Also, since it can be hard to get exactly the shade you want, it is vital to pay attention to how long you're keeping that dye on. "When dealing with color, there’s really no set time for how long to leave it on," Chris Appleton, who dyed Kylie Jenner's hair pink in September, says. "You need to watch it, wipe some off the hair to see what’s going on underneath, and keep checking until you get the desired color... Less is more, especially with frosted colors."

To keep your preferred pink shade vibrant, Appleton recommends using a sulfate-free shampoo as well. If you're careful with all these steps, you'll undoubtedly be left with a hair color that makes you look equal parts chic and daring. See how your favorite celebs are rocking this hue, ahead.

Celebrities are refusing to leave the pink hair trend in 2018. Since getting married to Justin Bieber this past fall, Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin) completely changed her look, first chopping her hair into an even shorter bob and now dyeing her signature blonde hair a romantic rosy hue.

Following in the footsteps of her sister Kylie Jenner, Khloeé Kardashian recently added light pink highlights throughout her newly platinum locks, courtesy of hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons. As is the Kardashian way, she debuted the new hue on Instagram with an cryptic caption: "You’ll never get the same moment twice. Appreciate this moment."

Instagram

For the holidays, celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan dyed Ashley Tisdale 's blonde bob an enviable shade of deep, cotton-candy pink. This isn't the first time Tisdale's gone pink either — she rocked subtle, rose-colored highlights back in 2016, too.

Instagram

Finally free from her role on Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams debuted new bubblegum pink hair on her Instagram Stories while sending a message to her fans in Brazil. Since GoT wrapped, a number of Williams' co-stars have also had hair transformations, including Emilia Clarke, who got a pixie cut, and Kit Harington, who cut his long Jon Snow locks.

Instagram

Julia Roberts' subtle pink highlights were a happy accident. As she revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the new color was a result of dressing up as a flamingo for Halloween, so we take it this isn't a permanent look.

For a mysterious project, actress Suki Waterhouse posted a picture of herself on Instagram with a whole new look: bright pink highlights. According to Pallett, he achieved the look with just one can of $10 Schwarzkopf Live Color spray in Candy Pink.

"I went over each section several times to build up the color," Pallett tells Refinery29. "When you do this, the hair becomes wet, so wait for it to dry, brush the hair, and then reapply. This gives you different shades and tones, so some bits are slightly darker while others are slightly lighter." The dye itself completely rinsed out in just one wash, which is a shame because this color rules.

Courtesy of Lewis Pallett

Since her latest role has her wearing a wig almost 24/7, actress Kiersey Clemons decided now was the time to experiment with her color, dyeing her tips a glorious neon pink for a hidden bit of self-expression.

The men of Hollywood are even in on this trend, with Jonah Hill joining Hollywood's pink pack. This unlikely hair hero of ours debuted bright neon pink hair last June, and frankly we've yet to recover.

Instagram

Chewing Gum actress and writer Michaela Coel dyed her closely shaved head a light baby pink last April.

Similar to Suki, Kylie Jenner also got her pink hair on the cheap. Hairstylist Chris Appleton mixed two different shades of pink Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Tint — Kawaii and Bunny, both $16 — to get just the right frosted pink shade.

"It was a collaboration," Appleton told Refinery29. "We were speaking about different colors and decided to go with a frosted pink, with more of a candy tint to it. The great thing about going blonde is that you can easily add a sparkle of color to change it up. I love this shade of pink we did because it’s warm on the skin, but more importantly, this shade is super frosted, soft and versatile."

Less bubblegum and more rose pink, Halsey dyed her buzzed hair this lovely deep pink shade, and then proceeded to wear outfits that matched the color exactly for the next few months.

DESTINATION FLIES - Doyle's Floating Crab http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheFiberglassManifestoBlog/~3/sKRSR1I8ovw/destination-flies-doyles-floating-crab.html Destination Flies posted a few images of his Doyle's Floating Crab on Instagram, I asked if he would mind putting together a step by step to show others how he ties this fly.  Grab your vise, tying materials and get to work.

MATERIALS - DOYLE'S FLOATING CRAB:   Hook - 2/0 Mustad C-68 SNP-DT Thread - Tan 210 Danville Flat Waxed Claws - Ginger Color Hareline Barred Rabbit Strips/3mm Tan Craft Foam Shrimp Eyes - Homemade Epoxy and Glass Bead Red Hot Spot - Estaz –Opal Salmon #ES26  Legs - Bone Color - Silicone Flutter Legs Body - Tan Congo Hair - Spun into a brush (EP fibers can be used as a substitute) Head: Montana Fly Company Tan 4mm Foam Cylinder
STEP #1 - Wrap hook with thread and glue, tie in Estaz equal to the hook barb, and complete three wraps on top of each other loosely.

STEP #2 - Tie in Shrimp Eyes, the end of the shrimp eye ball should be close to equal with the hook bend.

STEP #3 - Tie in 3 MM foam outside of the eyes, cut the corners off of the foam at the tie in point to allow for less bulk once wrapped over.  Trim tip of claw at approximately 30 degree’s.


STEP #4 – Cut Rabbit strip claw to approximately 2.5” and tie in outside of the foam.  Super glue the hide side of the rabbit strip to the foam and this will keep the rabbit strip from fouling.

STEP #5 – Tie in 4 silicone legs on the side of the hook shank, similar to how the rabbit and foam claws were tied in.  Leave the silicone legs as a full piece and tie in the tip on each side.  You will cut the center of the silicone legs later one once the body is shaped.  This helps keep the legs out of the way while tying.

STEP #6 – Wrap Synthetic body hair material brush forward 4-7 wraps depending on brush thickness.  This can also be completed with a dubbing loop if brushes are not used.  Tie in 4mm foam cylinder and then whip finish.



STEP #7 – Tease out synthetic fibers and trim.  Trim foam and synthetic fibers at the same time to get the taper right.  Glue finished thread wraps once completed for durability.  Width of the foam and crab body will vary dependent on size of crab you are trying to imitate.  Wider crab body and foam will float a little higher.  Preferred Body shape shown below.

Oh yeah, and they work.  Your results may vary however but keep trying.  Practice pays off.  Eventually.

The American Egg Board celebrates an egg becoming the most-liked photo on Instagram and getting 'the recognition it deserves' http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/alleyinsider/silicon_alley_insider/~3/Up6D2wHaZO0/american-egg-board-celebrates-instagram-egg-2019-1 Eggs

  • A picture of an egg is now the most-liked photo on Instagram, with more than 42 million likes. 
  • "We always knew eggs were incredible… now the world has confirmed it," the president of the American Egg Board said in a statement on Tuesday. 
  • The American Egg Board is donating millions of eggs to celebrate the Instagram-famous egg's success, and has reached out to the person who posted the egg to collaborate. 

The American Egg Association is celebrating the triumph of an egg-turned-Instagram celebrity. 

On Sunday, a photo of a humble egg posted by world_record_egg for the sole purpose of becoming the most-liked photo on Instagram did exactly that. The photo has been liked more than 42 million times as of Tuesday, surpassing the record previously held by reality show star and entrepreneur Kylie Jenner.

On Tuesday, the American Egg Board announced plans to donate millions of eggs to celebrate the egg's success. "The Incredible Egg," the industry group's marketing slogan, and American egg farmers pledged to donate more than 1 million eggs per month by Easter. 

"On behalf of America’s egg farmers, The Incredible Egg is thrilled to see the egg get the recognition it deserves," American Egg Board CEO Anne Alonzo said in a statement. "We always knew eggs were incredible… now the world has confirmed it." 

Take that little egg

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on Jan 13, 2019 at 6:04pm PST on Jan 13, 2019 at 6:04pm PST

 

The Incredible Egg commented on an Instagram video of Kylie Jenner smashing eggs. 

"Instead of throwing all those eggs people are sending you on the ground, put them to better use with some recipes at www.incrediblegg.org," the Incredible Egg account commented. "Who knows, maybe you'll create the world_record_omelet. The real question is: how do YOU like your eggs?" 

The American Egg board also said that it has offered the person running the World_Record_Egg account an "Incredible Eggambassadorship."

These Are The Best Memes Of 2019 So Far https://www.r29.com/en-us/best-memes-2019?utm_source=feed&utm_medium=rss

A sloth walks into a bar mansion in pursuit of love with an affable virgin, and a girl holding a tray of Fiji water bottles captivates a nation with her smoldering smize. These are just two of the best memes of the year, and it's only January, people!

What will be this year's Blue/Black vs. White/Gold Dress or Laurel vs. Yanny? It's too soon to tell. But I'm calling it now: 2019 shall be a great year for memes.

Ahead, some of the best so far.

An egg recently won the title of most-liked photo on Instagram, a title that, until recently, was held by Kylie Jenner for her photo announcing the birth of her daughter, Stormi Webster.

Yes, it's a lot to unpack. And we have a proposed theory: Could the Kardashians be behind said egg? A certain Kris Jenner, perhaps?

Perhaps the most important presence on The Golden Globes red carpet this year was that of Fiji Girl. The model's job was to hand out Fiji water bottles to stars on the carpet, and she wound up photobombing many of them whilst also serving lewks.

Let her story be an inspiration and reminder that all we need to do is find our light, and the rest will fall into place.

Oh, Sloth Girl. You didn't make it past Night One on The Bachelor, but we will never forget you. And you have been immortalized on the internet forever. Thank you for committing to your costume for the entirety of the episode.

Sometimes, what Marie Kondo teaches us about shirts can be applied to all aspects of life. Get rid of anything (read: anyone) in your life that does not spark joy for you!

If you were Sandra Bullock in Bird Box, what would it take for the entity to convince you to take off your blindfold? Harry Styles?

TFW Glenn Close eyes her competition for Best Actress at the Golden Globes.

Honorable mention: When Lady Gaga thought Rami Malek was her waiter.

When a video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing on a rooftop made the rounds on the interwebs recently, conservatives tried to use it against her. It backfired...and only revealed AOC to be a good dancer!

Now there's a Twitter account pairing the video with a bunch of different songs, and it is everything.

We dare you not to feel motivated and affirmed by this glorious video by Dontè Colley.

Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?

Blog Notes http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/ZSjz/~3/EzE-uiij3DU/blog-notes.html I had a stressful and busy day yesterday, and the upshot is that I've lost the use of my car—I guess because, in the opinion of the Universe, I didn't have enough to worry about. You know how it is.

I'm forced to return to related obligations this morning, and then this afternoon I'll be getting to the comments on the last two posts. There are at this moment two hundred and fifty three unpublished comments awaiting moderation, about half a day's work. So, no new post today, but, starting at about noon, I'll be adding new comments and Featured Comments throughout the day, so I encourage you to check back through the afternoon to read some of 'em.

To get to the comments on any post, simply click on "Comments ([number])" in the footer of any post:

Illo

Also, being behind in moderating by 253 comments is an all-time record in the 13 years, one month, and 18 days TOP has been in existence. I don't keep records, but I don't think I've ever been that far behind before.

Onward to my (temporary) fate, with a sigh.

Mike
