Dating After Your Spouse Dies Is The Third Rail Of Grieving

Ten months after Facebook Chief Operating Officer  Sheryl Sandberg ’s husband died, media reports revealed she had jumped into the deep end of the dating pool and was seeing Bobby Kotick , an old friend and tech billionaire. The world’s reaction to this news was fairly predictable: She was judged and slut-shamed  on Facebook in crude language. In the minds of many, the newly widowed shouldn’t date “too soon,” although no one has actually determined when “too soon” is. Is it a year? Is it when the kids leave for college? It’s a topic complicated enough that it is even discussed on  dating sites .  Sandberg addresses the issue in her new book, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy

Do Violent Video Games Cause Violence?

There has been plenty of research on whether or not violent video games cause aggression in the real world. Famously, we have lawyer Jack Thompson who claimed games like Grand Theft Auto and Mortal Kombat were causing children to attack one another. His claims were met with a moral panic that culminated like all other moral panics ― lot’s of hysteria. Thompson’s claims didn’t really get him anywhere but his claim lingered: do violent video games cause violence? Many would be inclined to say yes despite evidence to the contrary

11-Year-Old’s Dreams Come True When He Delivers Weather Forecast On Live TV

An 11-year-old from New Jersey had his dreams come true when he got the opportunity to help deliver the weather forecast on live TV. On April 12, Ryland Mishura from Mullica Hill appeared on an 11 a.m. Weather Channel segment with meteorologists Jim Cantore, Maria LaRosa and Alex Wallace.  The opportunity came courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation . Ryland has a severe case of isovaleric acidemia, a metabolic disorder that has life-threatening complications for the fifth grader. Ryland’s wish involved taking a tour of the Weather Channel studio and meeting his on-camera heroes. “I’m very interested in the weather, and it really inspires me,” he told The Huffington Post, adding that the studio tour was particularly exciting.  “It was like a dream because I never saw it before, and it looked so unreal,” he said. Ryland sat down with a producer for about five minutes to look at the technology and learn how to deliver the forecast before going live

Cleveland Killing Prompts Facebook To Review Handling Of Violent Posts

Facebook  said Monday it will review its process for reporting inappropriate content after an accused killer posted a video of his apparently unprovoked  shooting of a 74-year-old man  in Cleveland. Three posts to the suspect’s Facebook page ― a video announcing his intent to commit a murder, a graphic video of the killing, and a live video of his confession ― stayed online for about two hours, the social network said.  “We disabled the suspect’s account within 23 minutes of receiving the first report about the murder video, and two hours after receiving a report of any kind,” the company said. “But we know we need to do better.” Facebook said it was reviewing its “reporting flows to be sure people can report videos and other material that violates standards as easily and quickly as possible.” The company noted it is “constantly exploring” ways to harness advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence, to stop the spread of videos that violate its standards. The man police have accused in the Cleveland killing, Steve Stephens , 37, remains at large. He is wanted for aggravated murder in the killing of Robert Godwin Sr., who was walking home from a family Easter gathering.  Authorities widened the search into a  nationwide manhunt on Monday.  “We will leave no stone unturned,”  Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said at a press conference.  In 2015, a man posted videos to social media  of himself shooting and killing reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, while they were filming a live broadcast for Roanoke, Virginia, news station WDBJ.  — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms

Facebook Cracks Down On 30,000 Fake News Accounts Ahead of French Election

Too late for the U.S. presidential election, Facebook is going after 30,000 phony accounts used to distribute fake news  in France, ahead of the national vote there. The company is using automated methods to help screen out the fakes, such as finding content repeated on hundreds of the phony sites. Facebook said in a statement Friday that it’s taking “decisive action” against the accounts, presumably shutting them down. “While these most recent improvements will not result in the removal of every fake account , we are dedicated to continually improving our effectiveness,” Facebook technical program manager Shabnam Shaik wrote in a post. The company is relying on “improvements to recognize these inauthentic accounts more easily by identifying patterns of activity without assessing the content itself,” Shaik added.
