We all hate the lion killer. Does that excuse digital vigilantes?
07/29/2015
Feed-twFeed-fb

It's fair to say there is no man in the U.S. more actively loathed right now than Dr. Walter James Palmer

The Minnesota dentist — who, it emerged Tuesday, killed the legendary African lion Cecil — has shot to the top of America's most hated list. Given that this is the country of Donald Trump, Bill Cosby and the Koch brothers, that takes some doing

See also: The death of Cecil, Zimbabwe's beloved lion, is a far too common story

Palmer slaughtered a beautiful, protected animal for his own enjoyment. It was a stupid, pointless killing that speaks to our disgust and fear about what such heartless idiots are doing to the world. The fact that Palmer was previously sentenced over the shady poaching of a black bear didn't do him any favors; nor did his largely emotion-free statement which underestimated the depths of public outrage Read more...

A University of Cincinnati police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man has been charged with murder after a grand jury investigation, the Hamilton County prosecutor said on Wednesday. Prosecutor Joseph Deters, speaking bluntly at a news conference to announce the charges, called the July 19 death of Samuel Dubose, 43, "senseless" and totally unnecessary.

'100 Days of Haiku' is the poetic upgrade to your daily journal
07/29/2015
Feed-twFeed-fb

And you thought keeping a diary was tough.

For her new project #100DaysofHaiku, writer Courtney Symons put a creative and literary twist on life logging by writing a new haiku every day, 100 days in a row, and sharing her poems to Instagram.

A photo posted by Courtney Symons (@courtneysymons) on Jul 22, 2015 at 2:43pm PDT

 

"I've always considered myself a writer, but hadn't taken on any creative projects recently," Symons told Mashable. "I knew this could be just the kick in the pants I needed; to force me to set aside time every day to do a bit of writing."

The project was inspired by Elle Luna and The Great Discontent's #100DayProject, a public challenge to make and share new work for 100 days in a row. The idea embraced all types of creativity, from baking to song writing, but for Symons, haiku writing was the perfect medium to reconnect with her creative side. Read more...

Sometimes private conversations are meant to be heard.

Comedian Scott Rogowsky, armed with a boom microphone, was able to stealthily pick up random embarrassing conversations around New York. Surprisingly, it was all personal things and not stuff that actually matters (Bachelorette finale anybody?).

Still, we can't wait for part 2. Hopefully it will take place on the Manhattan subway.

Yahoo Livetext offers texting with video...without sound
07/29/2015

The mime community must feel validated today, because Yahoo has released a video texting app aimed right at them. Called Yahoo Livetext, it combines one-to-one texting with live video…without sound.

Basically, you’re sending each other text messages while also watching each other type and send those very text messages. So you can emote with your face while you type with your thumbs, as if you were on either side of a soundproof partition in jail, but the little phone you’re supposed to talk on wasn’t working, but you both had, say, iPod touches to text each other, but you couldn’t just Skype or FaceTime or Snapchat or Facebook Messenger or Hangout or Line or WeChat or whatever the kids are doing these days.
