Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 12:14

Here's how you can help migrants waiting at the U.S.-Mexico border

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 12:00

Many people have expressed outrage since seeing pictures earlier this week of unarmed mothers and children coughing, crying, and running away from tear gas at the U.S.-Mexico border. 

Some of the migrants, many of whom were trying to enter the U.S. to apply for asylum, had run to a border crossing when U.S. Customs and Border Protection closed the entrance and fired tear gas into the crowd. 

More than 5,800 migrants from Central America have been dwelling at the Benito Juarez Sports Complex in Tijuana, Mexico, just one block away from the border, waiting to apply for asylum. U.S. Customs and Border Protection only processes between 40 and 80 cases a day at that site, which means migrants may wait weeks or months with limited access to food, water, health services, and other basic needs and supplies.  Read more...

How architecture and design set the foundation for better public health

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 12:00

Investment in health care systems — and innovative ways to improve them — is on the rise. Reports estimate that new, global health ventures could generate $1.65 trillion in new business value by 2030. Investments come from many sources — governments, private entities, and international institutions — and, collectively, this capital can help enact real change.

In part as a result of this new infusion of investment, today’s most innovative architects are concerned with more than simply aesthetics. Increasingly, they’re also considering the health and well-being of the inhabitants who live in the spaces they design. Read more...

With Christmas just around the corner, now is the prime time to get ahead on the gift shopping. For many of us, this is the time when we feel chill and find comfort in the fact that Christmas is a month away. This is a huge mistake and one that we never seem to learn from.

Every year, without fail, many of us reach mid-December having done absolutely nothing to prepare for Christmas. At this late stage it's almost impossible to get things delivered in time for the big day, and we have to scramble around shopping centres getting thoroughly agitated. Why not make this the year when things go smoothly? Just an idea. Read more...

Andy Serkis brings out Gollum to make a hilarious point about his most famous role

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 10:37

Andy Serkis has proven by now that he is not a one-trick pony. The motion capture actor and now director of Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle has starred in everything from Star Wars to Planet of the Apes. 

But, he is undoubtedly most famous for playing the tortured, ring-obsessed Gollum — AKA Sméagol — in Lord of the Rings. Which is why James Corden on The Late Late Show asked Serkis to whip out the character for a little while. 

Serkis delivered a pretty funny Gollum/Sméagol monologue about his two-sided relationship with his most famous character. 

"Don't make me do Gollum, I don't want to do it. Yes you do, precious." Read more...

Someone bought a piece of the Eiffel Tower for a rather large sum of money

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 10:35

The Eiffel Tower is extremely classy. Wouldn't it be cool to own like, a little part of it? 

A staircase, say.

Well, guess what, someone actually bought a section of the original Eiffel Tower staircase for a rather large sum of money recently.

Take another little piece of my tower now, baby!

The 25-step section is part of the original staircase from when the Eiffel Tower opened in 1889. The section in question —which weighs 750 kilos — was used to climb the iron tower in the days before lifts were introduced to the structure in 1983.  Read more...

This $20 2-in-1 plug can turn virtually any device into a smart one

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 10:00

They say life imitates art — and in this case, "art" is Smart House, the 1999 Disney Channel original movie about a family whose life is controlled by PAT, their home's artificially intelligent personal assistant. Nearly two decades after the film's debut, we now have virtual assistants that can change the temperature of our homes, play music, and adjust lighting just like PAT could — although your average Google Home is far less bossy, to be sure.

Long story short: modern technology is smarter than ever. So where does that leave all of our older appliances — the ones that weren't designed with today's popular personal assistants in mind?  Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 09:00

Editor's note: Mashable and PC Mag are both owned by Ziff Davis.

We get it — the thought of spending over a grand on a new TV can be nauseating, no matter how badly you need to upgrade from your crappy 32-inch.

But you'd probably be more likely to make the jump if that purchase kills two birds with one stone, right?

Tech nerds and HGTV fans alike can drool over this one: This 4K TV from Samsung is literally called "The Frame" and offers the best of both worlds, doubling as the room's main piece of wall decor. PC Mag has both the 55-inch and 65-inch models on sale in their shop for $1,399.99 and $1,899.99, respectively — a savings of up to $600 and significantly cheaper than what Amazon is offering for the same device.

Stephen Colbert absolutely roasts Trump's comments about climate change report

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 08:50

Trump doesn't believe a damning climate change study produced by his own government, something that truly perplexed The Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

Aside from telling reporters he'd read "some" of the report, which warns that climate change will not only impact global health, but will cost the U.S. economy hundreds of billions of dollars annually, Trump referred to it as "fine."

“Fine?” Colbert said. “If I had to describe this report in one word it would not be 'fine.' It would be a different word that begins with F.”

“As in if you don’t believe in climate change at this point you are fined in the head." Read more...

Ice-T discusses that whole thing about him never eating a bagel

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 06:47

A few weeks ago, people caught wind of the fact that Ice-T had never eaten a bagel until Law and Order: SVU, when he was required to eat one. Right? Huge.

Ice-T and co-star Mariska Hargitay appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, where they were quizzed about the kerfuffle. For Ice-T, he just had to cop the bagel, although he didn't actually swallow.

"On the show they wanted me to eat a bagel. I said I don't eat bagels," Ice-T replied. "But it was in the script, so you know I just did it. But I acted like I ate it, I didn't eat it."

The actor eventually did eat a bagel, explaining he recently filmed an ad for dating app Coffee Meets Bagel, where he well, didn't enjoy it. "I ate one, I had one bite, and it felt like I ate a loaf of bread. Why would I eat an unsweetened donut?" he said. Read more...

Sick of his own family, Conan O'Brien hires a new one in Japan

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 05:39

They say you can't choose your family, but that doesn't really apply in Japan.

Annoyed with his own family who don't laugh enough at his jokes, Conan O'Brien went and hired a different wife, daughter and father from a family rental agency in Tokyo.

Yes, there's a whole industry in Japan dedicated to the renting of family members to lonely people, which means you can tell them what to do. 

That includes apologising for punishments you received as a kid and laughing at your bad jokes, as O'Brien ever handily finds out. Read more...

'Mrs Doubtfire' cast reunites after 25 years, remembers Robin Williams

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 01:51

It's been 25 years since the legendary Robin Williams posed as a rock-n-rollin' nanny, and his fellow cast members have reunited with fond memories of the late great comedian.

Classic family film Mrs Doubtfire was released in 1993, starring Williams and Oscar winner Sally Field. And the actors who played the Hillard children — Lisa Jakub as Lydia, Matthew Lawrence as Chris, and itty bitty Mara Wilson as Natalie, are all grown up.

Louis Theroux tries to make sense of people's tattoos of himself

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 11/29/2018 - 00:47

We can't imagine what it'd be like to have some random sporting a tattoo with your face on it.

So spare a thought for Louis Theroux, who has more than a few people who've inked his very famous mug on their bodies. 

The documentary filmmaker reacted to people's weird drawings of himself as part of a promotion for the Australian premiere of Altered States on the BBC Knowledge channel, showing on the country's cable company Foxtel on Dec. 6.
