Continuing to Remember Ann+

Along with Education for Ministry (EfM) , Episcopal Café , and most of the Episcopal Church as a whole, I am mourning the loss of a mentor, co-mentor, editor, friend, and incredible resource and example, namely Ann Fontaine. So many words have been written about her since her passing this past week that anything I say might seem to be just more of the same. Still, in talking to a friend recently, I realized something about Ann and her passing that gave me one of those insights that I want...

On our radar: the multi-talented (and design-minded) chef, a new line of clothing from Rough Linen, and a new shop in Dobbs Ferry. Here’s what we’ve bookmarked this week. Above: As part of our Commercial Kitchen week, we’ve been tracking the All-in-One Chef: chefs who are also designers (see: Matt Dillon in Seattle); ceramicists (like the talented chef/stylist/potter Marité Acosta, whose work is shown above; and Fernando Aciar at L’Estudio in New York, who makes his own bowls, plates, and lig...

Facebook users are mad as hell over the Cambridge Analytica scandal (FB)

Facebook users were angry after the enormous data breach and trust in the company has plummeted. Many have exacted revenge by deleting their account, and a study of 3,000 users in the US showed that they want Facebook punished in other ways. The Ponemon Institute found that they expect compensation and greater regulation after 87 million accounts were scraped for data by Cambridge Analytica. More honesty could help Facebook in the future. There's a simple reason why #DeleteFacebook was trend...

How firms you have never interacted with can target your Facebook

Advertisers are seemingly able to access accounts with no input from the userOn one of Facebook’s myriad setting screens, a place where few dare tread, is a list of places you’ve probably never heard of, all of whom insist that they know you. It’s emblematic of the data protection issues Facebook is struggling to address in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, of the fact that these problems spread far beyond Facebook, and of the easy solutions the company could take if only it had the c...

Machinima Power of The Primes Web Series Premiere Date Revealed

The Transformers Facebook page has shared a post today featuring a video clip (from Titans Return) and revealing when the third and final series in the Prime Wars Trilogy will launch. With a much shorter wait than that from Combiner Wars to Titans Return, Power of The Primes will begin streaming on Tuesday, May 1st. With the debut so close, it seems odd we haven't seen more promotion leading up to the launch date as we had with both previous web series - but there's still about a week and a h...

New Music To Know This Week: Lykke Li Makes A Comeback, Becky G Owns The World

Lykke Li "deep end"I think I learned more about Lykke Li's life from one mention in Rolling Stone's profile of Harry Styles last year than I have ever known about her, outside of what she records for her albums.

Deleting your Facebook account won’t keep it from tracking you

The #DeleteFacebook movement has been riding high ever since the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal got rolling, with high-profile figures like Elon Musk publicly declaring their intention to purge their good names from Facebook’s ledgers (only not really doing it, in Musk’s case). But, by Facebook’s own admission, it still has ways of tracking ex-users and non-users alike. For context: Facebook’s inability to keep its user data private was the crux of the Cambridge Analytica case, and its pro...

Belgian Waffle Ride 2018

The Belgian Waffle Ride was my “A” race for the year. I was getting it out of the way early to give Becca plenty of room for her events in 2018. She was coming back from injury and with the race being brought forward by four weeks I was looking forward to having a relatively sane 2018 after a very busy 2017!My approach to the race started back in January when I attended the Source Endurance Camp. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with old faces, make new friends and more importantly spend so...

Facebook's rep has taken a hit from the Cambridge Analytica scandal — but its ad business hasn't (FB)

Despite all the negative news lately, particularly relating to the Cambridge Analytica data leak, Facebook's advertising business appears to be plugging along, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said in a research note Friday. Ad spending on Facebook continues to grow rapidly, Sebastian reported, citing recent research from data firms. While some companies with well-known brands may scale back their spending on Facebook, the impact is likely to be minimal, he said. Facebook's stock and reputation...

Hamilton Actor Javier Muñoz Forced To Go Into Hiding After Targeted Harassment Following Mike Pence Visit

This is the world we live in. Truly upsetting.

Remembering Ann from the SttS Contributors

Although I never got to meet her in person, Ann Fontaine has been walking alongside me almost as long as I’ve been an Episcopalian.  We first met when I was new to the church, around 2006, via the blogosphere.  She later coerced me (in that won’t-take-no-for-an-answer way of hers) to do online EfM in one of the groups where she was a mentor.  She continued to walk alongside of me through my convoluted nine year path to the priesthood, encouraging me, telling me it was what I was called to do but...
