This young activist is fighting to keep LGBTQ youth safe from bullying

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 13:00

Every day of Pride Month, Mashable will be sharing illuminating conversations with members of the LGBTQ community who are making history right now.

Sameer Jha is just 17 years old, but has already achieved something remarkable — establishing a nonprofit and helping it become a cultural force. On top of all that, Jha is also a youth ambassador for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.

At the age of 14, Jha founded The Empathy Alliance, an organization dedicated to making schools safer for LGBTQ youth. As a queer and trans middle schooler, Jha says they endured extensive harassment and bullying. By establishing the nonprofit, they hoped to dramatically improve the quality of life for other LBGTQ students, so that no one would have the same traumatizing experience. Read more...

Adobe and Pantone are working to save coral reefs in a new campaign with the Ocean Agency

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 13:00

One-fifth of the world's coral reefs have already disappeared or are suffering from severe damage. In an attempt to combat this trend and raise awareness, Adobe and the Pantone Color Institute have teamed up with the Ocean Agency to launch a campaign that uses creativity to inspire change. 

Coral reefs may be full of vibrant colors, but if they’re too vivid, it can spell trouble. This rarity dubbed fluorescing is coral’s attempt to resist extremely high temperatures

While filming the Netflix Original Documentary Chasing Coral, the Ocean Agency “came across this unbelievable phenomenon in New Caledonia,” said Richard Vevers, Founder and CEO of the Ocean Agency. “These corals were fluorescing these incredibly vivid colors. We captured this imagery and it was in the film.”  Read more...

A mother-son bond, strengthened by Snapchat

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 11:00

Welcome to Small Humans, an ongoing series at Mashable that looks at how to take care of – and deal with – the kids in your life. Because Dr. Spock is nice and all, but it’s 2019 and we have the entire internet to contend with.

This story is presented by Verizon.

“I’m the only person in my class who doesn’t have a phone,” my son told me.

“No, you’re not,” I said, knowing that quite possibly, he was. 

This was the jist of several brief, pointless conversations over the next few months. He made me feel guilty; I buried my head in the sand. He’s 11, and inching away from me. Girls aren’t as annoying as they were when he was 10. He’s starting to deal with big feelings. He needs space away from his little brothers and sisters. I remember what it’s like to be that age, to want to hang out with your friends anywhere other than your own home. Anywhere your parents aren’t.  Read more...

Donald Trump angrily tweets about London's mayor, gets some brutal replies

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 10:28

Trump had barely touched down in the UK before he fired off his first angry tweet.

On Monday morning, the president arrived in London for a three-day state visit. As the adverts from some broadcasters suggest, though, not everyone in the UK was exactly excited to see him.

Firmly in the "not excited" category was London's mayor, Sadiq Khan.

Samsung's new Notebook 7 is essentially a MacBook Pro with Windows and more ports

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 10:00

Samsung has a couple of new laptops out: The Notebook 7 13'', the Notebook 7 15'' and the Notebook 7 Force. The first two are your run-of-the-mill business laptops, which look very much like Apple's MacBook Pro, while the 7 Force has an all-black design, is a bit more powerful and aims at creators. 

While copying Apple design and improving on certain shortcomings can be a good tactic (see Huawei's MateBook X), you'll want to take a good look at these laptop's specs before you buy one. 

SEE ALSO: Samsung's Galaxy Fold won't launch in June, reports claim

Here's the thing: Even though they're fairly similar, these three laptops have some key differences which might make them a great or not-so-great purchase, depending on your needs and wants.  Read more...

John Oliver breaks down the terrifying truth behind medical implants

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 09:36

If you're getting a medical device implanted in your body — say a hip replacement or some surgical mesh — you can be pretty confident the device in question has had all the necessary checks and approvals, right?

Well, apparently not. In the latest episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver breaks down the less-than-rigorous process some devices go through before they're cleared for use. 

"Saying something is 'FDA Cleared' is in no way proof that the device actually works," says Oliver, before explaining a loophole many companies use to get their products on the market.

It's all pretty scary stuff, made even scarier by several real-life examples of times devices have gone wrong. If you're squeamish, you may want to look away now. Read more...

Keanu Reeves walking to music in slow-motion is the Twitter account you deserve

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 07:40

Keanu Reeves walking to music. Any music. It's all you really need in your feed, right? 

Luckily, as spotted by Pedestrian.TV, one Twitter user has catered to your daily Reeves needs with an account dedicated to the actor's soon-to-be-legendary slow motion entrance in Ali Wong and Randall Park's Netflix film, Always Be My Maybe.

In the scene, Reeves makes a rather dramatic, slow-motion entrance as a dreamy romantic interest of Wong's character, Sasha, while the song "Sail" by American group Awolnation plays — the same song you might have heard in Phoebe Waller-Bridge's popular series Fleabag. Read more...

Oppo, Xiaomi show phones with selfie cameras hidden under the display

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 07:31

Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has developed a selfie camera that's hidden under a smartphone's display. 

The company showed off the tech in a short video on Twitter. 

For those seeking the perfect, notchless smartphone screen experience – prepare to be amazed. 📲

You are taking a very first look at our under-display selfie camera technology. RT! 🤯 pic.twitter.com/FrqB6RiJaY

— OPPO (@oppo) June 3, 2019

The 15-second video shows a partially hidden phone prototype that has no visible notch — in fact, the selfie camera isn't visible at all. And yet, the selfie camera appears to function as you'd expect. Near the end of the video, someone places a finger over the camera, blocking its view, as if to prove that the camera is really there.  Read more...

'Fleabag' and 'Always Be My Maybe' used the same song in two very different ways

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 06:33

Some songs, like that one that TV shows always use to make us cry, make their way through different movies and series, but they can be used in very different ways.

Like "Sail" by American group Awolnation, which has been perfectly deployed in both Phoebe Waller-Bridge's popular series, Fleabag, and Ali Wong and Randall Park's Netflix film, Always Be My Maybe, as highlighted by a Twitter video by digital strategist William Yu.

In Fleabag, the song is used to open Season 1, episode 2, in a surrealist scene on the London Tube, when commuters surrounding the protagonist seem to react in extreme pain or laughter to the beat, quickly switching back to their regular expressions. Read more...

'Ford v. Ferrari' sees Matt Damon and Christian Bale working on the ultimate race car

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/03/2019 - 02:44

Matt Damon and Christian Bale have teamed up to take on the most gruelling and prestigious car race in the world.

Ford v. Ferrari is based on the true story of the American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale), who link up to topple Ferrari's dominance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans — the auto heavyweight had won six times in a row from 1960 to 1965.

The story is based on the creation of the Ford GT40, a revolutionary racing car which eventually won Le Mans in 1966. 

Ford v. Ferrari is in cinemas on Nov. 15. Read more...

Cool English teacher asked her students to make memes. They delivered.

Angelina Murphy isn't a regular teacher, she's a cool teacher. 

Why? Well, Murphy is a high school English teacher in California who gives her students a fun and unique end of year assignment: Making memes.

"I give students the option to submit memes about the school year or our class and we look at them on the last day of class," Murphy told her Twitter followers. "They usually take this opportunity to roast me, which I don’t mind. They really outdid themselves this year..."

A Google Cloud outage breaks Snapchat, YouTube, Gmail

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 06/02/2019 - 21:24

Don't panic, but two of The Youths™ biggest sources of entertainment are down.

Snapchat and YouTube, as well as Gmail, G Suite, Discord, and other services, are down in some eastern regions of the U.S. and Europe. A Google Cloud outage, which powers logins for many non-Google properties, is responsible. That report comes from The Verge, as well as matching comparisons of outages on DownDetector.com.

(Editor's note: All Google services, plus Discord, are working as of 5:22 p.m. ET and never stopped working for Mashable weekend editor Adam Rosenberg, who lives near New York City. So it's not a universal issue for everyone, even on the east coast.) Read more...

If you ever wanted to play Telltale's 'Minecraft' game, you should do it soon

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sun, 06/02/2019 - 20:43

It looks like Minecraft: Story Mode, the blocky, choice-driven adventure from Telltale Games (R.I.P.), isn't long for this world.

A Friday update posted on Minecraft.net warns players that Story Mode will be disappearing from a number of platform stores at the end of June. And in an uncommon twist, it seems this will be a complete and total removal.

Here's the statement:

It's not yet clear what will happen to the Netflix version of Minecraft: Story Mode on June 25. Mashable reached out to the streaming provider for answers and we'll update accordingly when we hear back.

It's not unusual in the modern era for video games from defunct publishers to be discontinued, especially when there's a licensing deal in the mix. What's less common is for those discontinued games to vanish entirely.  Read more...
