You haven't heard of this masculinity movement, but it's exactly what men need right now

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sat, 06/16/2018 - 11:30

You can't fault Jeffrey O'Brien for feeling frustrated. 

The past few months have brought a deluge of headlines about violent and abusive aspects of stereotypical masculinity, but few of those stories have mentioned what O'Brien, an expert in gender violence prevention, knows to be true: The decades-long movement to help boys and men liberate themselves from the constraints of conventional manhood is quietly, slowly changing lives.

The Opportunity rover has survived Martian hell for 15 years. Here's how.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sat, 06/16/2018 - 11:00

A dust storm the size of North America has smothered NASA's Opportunity rover for the past week, shrouding much of the red planet in darkness and depriving the robot's solar panels of light. 

Opportunity's battery power has dropped so low that it's now in a sleep mode and unable to send information back to Earth.

"It's gotten so bad she's not talking to us," Bill Nelson, chief of the Opportunity mission's engineering team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in an interview.

Feeling scatter-brained? Well, you’re not alone.

8 of Sarah Huckabee Sanders' most batshit moments as press secretary

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sat, 06/16/2018 - 09:00

It's been quite a week for Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

First, a report surfaced on Wednesday that she would be bidding adieu to the White House at the end of the year — moving on join her predecessors Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci at whatever fancy island hideaway they've set themselves up on.

Then, on Thursday, she faced tough criticism from reporter Brian Karem about the administration's widely condemned policy of separating children from parents who arrive in the U.S. illegally. He asked her point blank, "Don't you have any empathy for what these people are going through?"

Her very ungraceful avoidance of the question may well turn out to be the defining moment of her tenure as secretary. But it's certainly not the first time Sanders has stepped in it. Read more...

'The Onion' promises it won't stop trolling Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Sat, 06/16/2018 - 00:08

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is getting a taste of what happens when you piss off The Onion. 

The satirical news site has been relentlessly trolling Zuckerberg and Facebook for the past few days and promises it's only getting started.

Blood feud: Feds hit Theranos founder with criminal charges

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 23:16

Disruption comes in many forms. For Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, it may end up taking the form of a jail cell. 

The 34-year old Stanford dropout has been charged by federal prosecutors with 11 counts alleging she defrauded her investors and patients. 

It was just a few months ago that Holmes, who once promised to revolutionize blood testing, was also charged with fraud by the SEC. In that case she agreed to pay a $500,000 penalty. 

SEE ALSO: 'The next Steve Jobs' charged with 'massive fraud'

Holmes's supposed shady dealings were first highlighted in 2015 by Wall Street Journal reporter John Carreyrou, who poked holes in Theranos' claims with a devastating series of stories concerning the company's Edison blood-testing device.  Read more...

How to watch the World Cup (and other sports) live without cable or a TV

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 21:05

Let's be honest, there are few feelings that can match the rush of watching live as your favorite soccer team wins in PKs during the World Cup, snags a game winning run in the bottom of the ninth, or gets a sudden KO in the middle of the octagon. Even seeing these major moments an hour later — or worse, catching wind of them on Twitter — is enough to cause despair.

BBC reimagines the perfect human body and it'll give you nightmares

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 20:57

Humans aren't perfect, but anatomist Alice Roberts knows how they could be.

On Wednesday, BBC shared a terrifying video in which Roberts reimagines the human body and creates Alice 2.0 — a version of herself with no errors and the most successful features of animals.

This, uh, different looking human model, has large eyes and ears, a chimp's lower back, the legs of an emu, small pumps in her thighs to help blood circulation, and a breast-less chest. Within her lies a dog's heart, "the graceful lungs of a swan," and more. Casual. And oh yeah, to make the whole childbirth thing easier, she has a marsupial pouch. NO THANK YOU. Read more...

Get a massive slice of Raspberry Pi courses for only $19

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 20:13

In 2012, upon discovering that the number of students wanting to study IT at the University of Cambridge had dwindled dramatically, Eben Upton began brainstorming for a gimmick to increase the number of enrollees. So he came up with the Raspberry Pi. 

Ah yes, that's more like it.

The $35-a-pop minicomputer became an instant hit, sold like hotcakes worldwide, and has prompted the rise of amateur inventors. Innovative projects like voice-activated coffee machines, bow-tie spy cams, and humanoid robots were all spawned by that tiny piece of machinery. And you, too, could get in on the game and start a slew of your own creative projects with the Raspberry Pi.  Read more...

Shut the f*ck up, Marco Rubio

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 20:12

Hey, Marco Rubio. Shut the fuck up.

Just. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio's Twitter blasted out an ad for his reelection on Friday, and it's the biggest pile of trash and as desperate an attempt at appealing to ... millennials? as I have ever seen.

"What do you think of Kanye West's new album?" the video asks Rubio, who responds by saying he doesn't know anything about West's new album except that he premiered it in Wyoming. Rubio then brings up drama between Drake and Pusha-T.

"That whole thing is so complicated," Rubio admits.

Shut the fuck up, Marco Rubio. No one gives a hot shit what you think about Kanye West's new album. No one gives a damn that you know about Drake and Pusha-T beef. Read more...

Why gender, identity, and fashion matter in the ambitous 'Cyberpunk 2077'

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 20:04

The hype for Cyberpunk 2077 is so goddamn real. 

After first teasing the neo-noir game five years ago at E3, CD Projekt Red came back with a new trailer that upped the ante and stole the show. In short, Cyberpunk 2077 came to kick ass, take names, and look super fucking dope in the process.

SEE ALSO: All the best and biggest games from Xbox's E3 press conference

We caught the hour-long, hands-off demo at E3, and it was the kind of wild ride you need to see to believe. There's almost too much to say about the bustling, vibrant, and jam-packed world of Cyberpunk 2077

But one of the most fascinating aspects that truly makes the game stand out among the sea of other open-world blockbuster role-playing games is how character customization, appearance, and gender actually have direct impacts on the story.  Read more...

'The Kissing Booth' is the problematic, lazy dumpster fire dominating Netflix

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 19:52

The Kissing Booth is the teen romance that Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos claims is "one of the most watched movies in the world right now." And that's a big problem. 

Don't get me wrong. I can appreciate a glittery high school fantasy as much as the next person—seriously, I've seen all of Riverdale. 

SEE ALSO: '13 Reasons Why' Season 2 begins with an extended content warning

But The Kissing Booth isn't just the latest movie setting unrealistic expectations for teenagers. Instead, it is a two hour tribute to Netflix's trend of valuing controversial (and too often willfully ignorant) content over quality young adult narratives.  Read more...

'Little Fires Everywhere' is a beautiful novel that takes you places you'll never expect to go

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 19:23

In Celeste Ng's second novel Little Fires Everywhere, we're introduced to two families: the Richardsons and the Warrens. 

On the surface, the Richardsons are the kind of family you might see in a stock photo framed in Target. They live in Shaker Heights, a Cleveland suburb known for order. But Little Fires Everywhere introduces us to them them in the midst of turmoil: their family home is burning down and the immediate suspect is Izzy, the Richardsons' rebellious younger daughter.

SEE ALSO: 'An American Marriage' is a beautiful love story that's as heartbreaking as it is complex

The story, in a way, takes place backwards. We learn about the series of events that ultimately lead to the fire, but the loss of their home is just one of the many rabbit holes that Ng takes us down. The Warren family, made up of a mysterious single mother named Mia and a her young daughter Pearl, become intertwined with the Richardson family throughout the course of the book. Ng expertly weaves us through the history of each character, plus many more surprises — including a custody case that divides a community and raises questions of morality and motherhood.
