How To Make A Stop-Motion Lego Flick Of Your Very Own

By Signe Brewster for WIRED . Despite the blocky, herky-jerky quality of their visuals, 2014’s The Lego Movie and its box-office-ruling spinoff, The Lego Batman Movie , were not actually filmed in stop-motion. (It would have cost tens of thousands of dollars to buy the bricks alone.)

Facebook Raises The Bar For Supporting Grieving Employees

In one very heartfelt swoop, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg has raised the bar on a very important employment benefit most people hope they’ll never use: paid bereavement leave ― the time off you need to recover from the loss of a loved one. The tech giant will now provide 20 days of paid bereavement leave, double the amount previously given. Sandberg knows from whence she speaks. She went back to work 10 days after her husband, Dave Goldberg, died in 2015.  “This is personal for me,” Sandberg said when making the announcement at the Makers conference , a women’s leadership event sponsored by AOL, the parent company of The Huffington Post. “ I lost my husband very suddenly . Facebook provided leave and flexibility, and now we’re doing more.”  Facebook employees will also be able to take off three additional days if they need to take care of family member with a short-term illness, and six weeks if they need to provide longer-term care for ailing family members.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is putting newly confirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Republican senators who approved him on notice.  GOP lawmakers on Tuesday night invoked Rule 19 , which forbids speaking ill of other senators, to silence Warren as she attempted to read a letter from Coretta Scott King criticizing Sessions.  “She was warned. She was given an explanation,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said. “Nevertheless, she persisted .” Less than 24 hours later, Warren fired off a blistering series of tweets noting that Sessions is no longer a senator ― and no longer protected by Rule 19.  She also had a warning for her GOP counterparts who confirmed him.  Here’s what she said Wednesday evening:  I’m deeply disappointed that the Senate voted to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General tonight. — Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) February 9, 2017 Deeply disappointed that the Senate confirmed an AG whose record does not show he will faithfully & fairly enforce the law

Twitter is all Bark and no Bite with $167million loss

The continued performance failure of $167million reported loss in last three months of 2016 and a stagnant 4% growth of total users at Twitter is part of an underlying structural problem and culture at the company inability to move beyond its early foundations of a simple microblog. The use of Twitter by Trump for his political campaign is just a side show when it’s 319 million user base are simply not engaged enough in direct revenue generation for the company.
