What the College Scandal Shallowfakes Reveal About the Rich

Photoshop played an outsize role in the odious college admissions scandal that broke earlier this year. Rick Singer, the concierge to the stars who pleaded guilty in March to money laundering and racketeering in a scheme to get rich children into luxury-brand colleges, used the software to graft the heads of teens onto the muscled bodies of elite athletes. With the Photoshopped water polo image in particular, the one that helped an undistinguished high schooler get recruited by USC, Singer seems to have created a mythological creature—a Ceto for the digital age. Call them the Collegiae: They’ve got the heads of princesses and the bodies of serpents. To mark the moment, a Twitter friend, Peter Mohan, ginned up an image …

What else would you expect from The Terminator? After an unprovoked attack in South Africa recently, when a crazed ‘fan’ came from nowhere with a flying kick to his back, Arnold Schwarzenegger has reacted in typical fashion by brushing it off as merely a ‘jostle from the crowd.” Schwarzenegger was in Johannesburg for the annual “ Arnold was casually walking around the venue in Johannesburg, filming participants in action on his phone, when an assailant ran up behind him and hit him with a flying two-legged kick, known in wrestling parlance as a ‘dropkick.’ “I don’t think I’ve seen anyone assault Arnold like this,” Daniel explained. “But he was hit with an egg when he was running for Governor and responded by saying …

We can love one another but nobody can save us from ourselves and when we don’t understand that in the slightest, we need to be alone the most. You need to be alone when you’re unhappy with yourself.

Republican Justin Amash faces party’s wrath after call to impeach Trump

Congressman was dismissed by Republicans and rebuked by Trump after saying he engaged in impeachable conduct As the only Republican in Congress to call for the impeachment of Donald Trump, Justin Amash is impeachable conduct. He also accused the attorney general, William Barr, of misleading the US public. In the 48 hours that followed Amashs intervention, the five-term libertarian was rebuked by the president, dismissed by Republican colleagues and challenged from the right in his district. Jim Lowe, a Michigan state representative, said on Sunday he would run for Amashs seat in the Republican primary next year.

Tiger Woods struggles as Brooks Koepka coasts clear in US PGA

(CNN)Tiger Woods cut a frustrated figure as the magic of the Masters eluded him on day one of the 101st US PGA Championship. But while Koepka coasted, Woods experienced a roller-coaster of a round including two double bogeys and an eagle, not helped by a misfiring putter. “It wasn’t as clean as I’d like to have it, for sure,” said Woods, who won the US Open at Bethpage in 2002. “Got it back under par for the day, and let a couple slip away with a couple bad putts and a couple mistakes at the end.” His round began in ignominious fashion with a double bogey following short-game issues after starting at the 10th. The 43-year-old steadied the ship and …

Pinterest stock falls 15% after first earnings report reveals bigger loss than expected

New York (CNN Business)Pinterest’s honeymoon on Wall Street may be over. Prior to the release, Pinterest had seen shares soar more than 50% above its IPO price since its Wall Street debut last month. The strong early performance set it apart from other recent tech unicorns that have gone public, including Uber and Lyft, which quickly fell below their IPO prices. Pinterest, a social platform for bookmarking pictures from around the web, now has 291 million monthly active users globally, a 22% increase from the year prior, but still far less than peers like Facebook (FB) and Instagram, which measure their audiences in the billions. “The IPO was a significant milestone, but our focus at Pinterest hasn’t changed.

This popular form of communication actually has its roots in academia, and the term was coined by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in his famous 1976 book, The Selfish Gene. His original idea of a meme was “a unit of cultural transmission or imitation,” with examples including the concept of God, nursery rhymes and jokes, catchphrases and fashion trends.

Medieval Sex Cult at Center of German Crossbow Murder Mystery

The storefront window of Torsten Weisss medieval fetish shop in Hachenburg, Germany, is adorned with a mannequin splattered with fake blood sitting open-legged on a counter. A periwinkle blue rope is tied several times around her wrists and neck. Thick silver chains are draped across her shoulders like suspenders. A stained blindfold is pushed up above her eyes.

Everything You Need to Know About The Jenelle Evans/David Eason Dog Fiasco Betches

Teen MomTeen Mom 2Here’s what went down. Last week, David Eason, Jenelle Evans’ husband, purposefully shot and killed their French bulldog Nugget in North Carolina where they live. He now could go to jail for up to 4 months, which honestly seems like too little for such a vile act. Jenelle claimed he killed the dog because it was being aggressive toward Ensley, their 2-year-old daughter, and that she was seriously considering pressing charges against him for it (makes sense). I would press charges if someone gave my dog a weird look on the sidewalk, so David deserves whatever punishment is coming his way.

Minecraft Earth makes the whole real world your very own blocky realm

When your game tops 100 million players, your thoughts naturally turn to doubling that number. That’s the case with the creators, or rather stewards, of Minecraft at Microsoft, where the game has become a product category unto itself. And now it is making its biggest leap yet — to a real-world augmented reality game in the vein of Pokémon GO, called Minecraft Earth. Announced today but not playable until summer (on iOS and Android) or later, MCE (as I’ll call it) is full-on Minecraft, reimagined to be mobile and AR-first. So what is it? As executive producer Jesse Merriam put it succinctly: “Everywhere you go, you see Minecraft. And everywhere you go, you can play Minecraft.” Yes, yes — but …
