Why the UK has set up a separate fund to further the Time's Up movement

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 15:28

Time's Up. These two words have reverberated across the globe since over 300 women in Hollywood joined forces to form a movement to combat systemic sexual harassment across all workplaces.

The initiative— launched by the biggest names in the U.S. entertainment industry—has raised $21 million for its legal defence fund in the past month alone. 

Across the Atlantic ocean, British actors, directors, and producers have followed in the footsteps of their U.S. counterparts by setting up a UK fund to "end a culture where harassment and abuse are commonplace." While inspired by their U.S. sisters, this UK chapter of Time's Up will not be a mirror image of the legal defence fund.  Read more...

Oprah knows exactly how to deal with angry Donald Trump tweets

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 12:24

Sorry guys, but Oprah is definitely not running for president. She's said it before, and she said it again during a Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance Thursday.

"It's a humbling thing to have people think that you can run the country," says Oprah, appearing impressively chilled about the whole thing in the clip above.

"I'm the kind of person who tries to listen to signs. I think, 'Am I supposed to run the country?... I don't think so.'"

Not even angry tweets from the current president can fluster her, in fact.

"You don't win by meeting any kind of negativity head on," she says, explaining that she didn't for "a second" consider tweeting him back. Read more...

The lobster emoji was anatomically inaccurate so now it's getting fixed

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 10:53

Lobsters are kind of a big deal to the people of Maine. Which is why they weren't at all pleased to discover the new lobster emoji was anatomically inaccurate. 

Thankfully, Unicode took instant action and rectified its mistake.

A group of girls gather around the schoolyard to witness a smash-up battle of epic proportions on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

14 Stephen King quotes about writing you totally need to hang on your wall

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 08:00

The first Stephen King book I ever read was The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. I was still in my teens, and my gran — a huge King fan herself — thought it was the one I'd have the best chance of reading without getting too scared.

She was wrong about that (I scare pretty easily), but she was right to introduce me to King. He's been my favourite author ever since.

It's not just his stories that keep me coming back, either. He's also a brilliant writer. From his gloriously grisly descriptions to his on point dialogue and character portrayals, I've always thought the horror master doesn't get anywhere near enough credit as he should for his impressive command of language.
