Martin Filler: The Fascist Implications Of Trump’s Architectural Plans

This effective ban on modern architecture commissioned by the US government is horrifyingly reminiscent of Hitler’s insistence that public buildings in the Third Reich hew to the Classical tradition (though usually a stripped-down version of it) and that modern design, except for some industrial uses, was streng verboten (strictly forbidden). – New York Review of Books

Privacy is going to kill advertising as we know it. No one seems to know where the industry goes from here, and $108 billion is at stake.

The privacy era is upon us. It's probably a good thing for consumers, but ad buyers and sellers have to prepare for massive changes that will rock the $108 billion digital advertising business. The most recent change is Google's plan to smash the third-party cookie in two years. Marketers will have to fundamentally change how they do their business, which could dent publishers and just end up strengthening Google and Facebook. No one is happy with the proposed cookie replacements, from the IAB...

How Martin Luther King Jr. and Motown Saved the Sound of the Civil Rights Movement

You know Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Or at least you think you know it—you’ve read about it in textbooks, or heard politicians quote from it, or seen clips in classrooms or museums. But chances are, you haven’t heard the full 17-minute address from the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and what you have heard failed to capture what made it the one of the most famous speeches in history. Even if you wanted to, despite its renown, it’s surprisingly hard to find...

‘Anything Good in This Country Has Had to Be Wrestled Free.’ What Whitney Houston’s Rendition of the National Anthem Taught Me About America

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it ­embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family,” the pastor said at our wedding ceremony, borrowing from Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court case that made same-sex marriage equality the law of the land. I realize now that I didn’t understand the gravity of those words. Everything I did that day was a leap of faith, but when you’re in a church, all you need is faith, isn...

Southern California woman sues Mexican megachurch, says leaders molested her starting at age 12

LOS ANGELES  — A Southern California woman says the father and son leaders of a Mexican megachurch sexually abused her for 18 years starting when she was 12, manipulating Bible passages to convince her the mistreatment actually was a gift from God, according to a federal lawsuit. Sochil Martin, 33, said she was “groomed” from the age of 9 to please the self-proclaimed apostles of La Luz del Mundo, the late Samuel Joaquín Flores and his son Naasón Joaquín García.

Islanders’ Komarov Settling in on Fourth Line

Leo Komarov has definitely had an interesting career with the New York Islanders. When he was signed prior to the 2018-19 season, the Islanders probably expected him to bring a bit more offense to the team. He has been a player who scored 19 goals in a season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but has only three goals this season. Related: New York Islanders’ Greatest of All-Time However, he seems to have finally found himself in a comfortable position on the fourth line after the injury to ...

Marketing to gardening ignorance

I always have books around and these are good ones. I’ll be giving these to the beginning gardeners I know, except for Tom’s, which I’ll keep. Beginning gardeners in the US are the focus of a variety of persuasive techniques. Last April, I posted about how dubious websites and silly memes try to convince people that they’re not just endangering their plants, they might be killing the world. Unfortunately, these often become viral, as people who have grown up depending on digital information s...

'It honestly killed the project': Former Google employees speak out about a policy that lets the company claim ownership over code they write for outside projects (GOOG, GOOGL)

According to Google's policy, it can own intellectual property and code that employees write, even if it's for outside projects. If Googlers want to retain rights over their code, they have to go through an approval process. Former Googlers say the long process keeps them from contributing to the open source projects, and the policy can even pose a risk to those projects if a tech giant owns rights to the code.  Click here for more BI Prime stories.

Jeff Bezos was roasted during the Oscars opening monologue, with Chris Rock saying he is 'so rich' that even a divorce settlement couldn't put a dent in his net worth

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was the target of some jokes at the Oscars on Sunday night.  Comedians Steve Martin and Chris Rock playfully called out Bezos' enormous wealth and his recent divorce from ex-wife MacKenzie Bezos.  "Jeff Bezos is so rich, he got divorced and he's still the richest man in the world," Rock said to a laughing audience.  Bezos was in the audience, and appeared to be laughing along. The world's wealthiest man finalized his divorce settlement with MacKenzie Bezos in July, ...

What’s Next for Ireland After Its Seismic Election Result

Ireland’s Feb. 7 election has delivered a shock result, with Irish nationalist party Sinn Féin winning the most first-preference votes and beating out two center-right parties that have governed for almost a century.

Apple Inc. v. Andrea Electronics (Fed. Cir. 2020) After Andrea sued Apple for infringing its U.S. Patent 6,363,345 (noise cancelling audio signal processing), Apple responded with two inter partes review (IPR) petitions.  The PTO initiated both petitions and eventually cancelled all of the claims except 6-9.  Apple then appealed – asking that they all be invalidated.
