Social Media: Your Free Roadmap To A Healthier Lifestyle

Did you know that a full one-third of American adults obtain health information through social media ? In a generation that is more likely to go online to check on their symptoms than ask a doctor, what role does social media play in this process? Spoiler: It plays a major part. There have been countless research papers on how illnesses can be infectious but in the digital age, we are asked to examine a different kind of infection. Healthy and unhealthy behavior is extremely contagious

Here’s What It’s Like To Have ‘Unlimited’ Paternity Leave At Netflix

Netflix announced “unlimited” parental leave this summer, telling most employees — men and women — they could take up to a year off after they have a kid. It’s clearly an amazing amount of time. But the bigger question for Netflix has been: Would anyone actually take a full year off from the streaming media company?  Here’s our first bit of evidence that the answer is no, at least for men: A Netflix engineering manager named Casey Rosenthal took to LinkedIn last week to write about his decision to take eight weeks off after the birth of his son in December. He said he’s considering taking more time throughout the year.  “I am leaning toward two weeks on / two weeks off for the next few months and seeing how that goes,” Rosenthal writes . He goes on to talk about the benefits of being home with his baby, describing their nonverbal interactions as “the most wonderful conversation I could ever imagine, with a tiny human that I will love for the rest of my life.” He also expresses eagerness to get back to the office and work. Rosenthal is following in the footsteps of other new tech dads, like Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, who are actually going public with their paternity leaves

Crisis Management Planning for Social Media

It happens to us all, it’s just a matter of when will it happen? When a crisis is identified, it may be tempting to wait until all the facts are available before proceeding. Anyone impacted will want answers as soon as possible. It’s best practice that your brand provides answers before others start to chime in on social media without the facts. Deal with positive and negative criticism in real time, so others are not led down the wrong path – always be truthful. Don’t hide! Consider these ten steps before a crisis occurs: 1

Bill Nye Has A Brilliant Idea To Transform NASCAR

Has the time come for NASCAR to go green — and help save the world? Bill Nye thinks so. In an emotional new blog post, America’s beloved “Science Guy” urges the popular stock car racing series to replace the “ancient tech” internal combustion engines that power the series’ race cars for clean-running electric motors . “We could convert all of our racecars to electricity — right now — and show the public exactly what electrons can do,” Nye says in the post, adding that the series could spotlight the shift by changing its name to NESCAR (for National Electric Stock Car Racing). He continues: Just think what an electric race would be like. It would be faster, and quiet.

These Tech Wizards Want To Pay People For Doing Absolutely Nothing

Silicon Valley has helped hatch all sorts of disruptive new technologies, from robots that can make computer chips, to automated personal assistants, to cars that drive themselves. Now it wants to study what happens when you pay people for doing absolutely nothing. It sounds crazy, sure. But one of Silicon Valley’s most influential venture capitalists thinks the time has come to test the pros and cons of basic income, a controversial scheme under which people are provided with a guaranteed income sufficient to cover basic living expenses whether or not they work. “I’m fairly confident that at some point in the future, as technology continues to eliminate traditional jobs and massive new wealth gets created, we’re going to see some version of this at a national scale,” Sam Altman, president of the Y Combinator firm, wrote Wednesday in a blog post  on the company’s website

Model Responds To Dudes Who Send Her Dick Pics By Telling Their Girlfriends

Senders of unsolicited dick pics, beware. Emily Sears, an Australian model based in Los Angeles, is one of countless women who have to deal with online harassment in the form of unsolicited NSFW images .  A photo posted by #EMILYSEARS (@emilysears) on Jan 14, 2016 at 11:27pm PST So she decided to respond to the gentleman senders by reaching out to their girlfriends. (An example of her public shaming can be seen in the NSFW tweet below.) “The message we really want to send is that this happens to so many women, not just models with a following,” she told The Huffington Post in an email Friday. “I’ve had girlfriends of mine deny men on dating apps, only to have them search for them on LinkedIn and other profiles, sending completely inappropriate messages.”  Sears, who has 2.3 million Instagram followers, said the responses she receives from the girlfriends of the offenders have been “mixed,” ranging from “ignoring to heartfelt gratitude.” “I think once I provide them with the information it’s their choice and right to decide what they want to do with it.”   Ultimately, Sears’ aim is to do her part in stopping online harassment.  “We just want to remind people to take accountability for their actions online, and stop saying and doing things online that you wouldn’t do in person,” she added.

Social Media and Saving the Environment: Clicktivism or Real Change?

The environmental sector has embraced social media rapidly and wholeheartedly. It is using the medium to support environmental campaigns and to connect people locally and cross-nationally on major environmental issues such as climate change. It also provides ordinary people with the ability to track the quality of the air and water around them and then share this data with others. In this post I discuss five essential ways social media has been used to support the environment: 1) with the “crowd”; 2) by enabling the rise of independent activists; 3) by creating campaign pressure points; 4) with the development of sensing hardware and personal wearables; and 5) with the use of geotags and hashtags. Introduction Our environment is a shared resource, one that has increasingly been threatened by the rapid expansion of extractive activities to keep up with demands driven by consumerism and shaped by industry.
