The rich are different, but their smartphones aren’t

New York (CNN Business)The world might be turning to technology to solve everything from traffic to dating, but no one app or gadget will save the rich and famous from falling prey to cyberattacks, according to digital security experts. The rich and famous also can’t buy phones that are more secure than the average,said Mark Nunnikhoven, vice president of cloud research at software security firm Trend Micro. “The level of technology has become so advanced for everyone that there’s no special class of phones that only the elite have access to,” he said. Companies looking to protect their top brass have started paying more attention to digital security over the past two years. Aamir Lakhani, a researcher at IT security …

Media-savvy Sekulow set to hold his own on Trump’s big-name legal team

(CNN)Flanked by an independent counsel whose name is already etched into impeachment history and a marquee constitutional scholar who has stood beside some of the most notorious defendants in a generation, most lawyers would run the risk of being overshadowed. Preparing for the unknown Sekulow, Cipollone and members of their team have spent more than a month shaping their arguments in preparation for the Senate trial — and yet sources close to the legal team say the speaking order of the lawyers involved and precise content of their arguments remain fluid heading into the start of the trial. A person familiar with the preparations said the legal team has built such flexibility into their defense because House Democrats have the …

Photographers Jim Hollander and Rina Castelnuovo have spent two years finding survivors and people to take their portraits When Jim Hollander, an American photographer, arrived by ship in Israel in 1983, he found the cafe society of Tel Aviv had one major difference to other cities along the shores of the Mediterranean. You would see these people sitting with numbers on their arms, Hollander recalled, referring to tattooed Nazi identification codes. I thought: I would love to do a big story on this. Tel Aviv was filled with

10 Reasons Were F*cking Over Montauk | Betches

Before Instagram blew up your newsfeed with all the “see and be seen” spots, navigating Montauk ran on an “if you know, you know” mentality. A drive through the small main strip of town will only reveal a handful of all that Montauk’s heyday had to offer. Before Montauk (in basic bitch term) “blew up”, it was only by word of mouth that you knew about Navy Beach (and where the hell it was). You knew that while The Lobster Roll looked like a roadside dive, it was the best stop for lunch before heading into town. The Harvest was all the rage and absolutely nothing topped a post-beach happy hour at The Sloppy Tuna. After a day of charter …

Angelina Jolie teaming with BBC to create a kids show designed to combat fake news

Angelina Jolie isn’t ruling out running for public office one day. (Reuters) The show will run for a half-hour each Sunday via BBC World News. Its content will be shared with the BBC’s 42 different language services and be made available on both YouTube and the BBC iPlayer in the United Kingdom. ANGELINA JOLIE HASN’T FELT ‘FREE’ OR ‘SAFE’ IN YEARS “There’s a gap in provision for young people who want to understand how the news is made and the values that stand behind it. They need the tools to distinguish the real from the false online, and the skills to think critically about information, wherever they encounter it,” added director of BBC World Service Group Jamie Angus in a statement …

Frozen iguanas forecast to shower south Florida as temperatures drop

National Weather Service warned of reptiles falling from trees as iguanas are susceptible to freezing once temperatures fall to 40F The National Weather Service (NWS) took the unusual step on Tuesday of warning that frozen iguanas are expected to shower south Florida as temperatures drop to unusually low levels for the region overnight. Iguanas, as it turns out, are susceptible to freezing once temperatures drop to around 40F (4.44C). When frozen, these cold-blooded creatures lose their grip on the cozy trees they call home and slip. But the experts informed the public to be aware that the chilled reptiles may be stiff and appear lifeless but they are not dead. The NWS made the decision to alert the public on …

Blind Elephant Starts To Dance Once She Hears The Pianist Playing To Comfort Her

It is mind-blowing to think how alike humans and animals can sometimes be. I’m not talking about physical appearance—the closest resemblance there are primates and that’s about it. Animals continue to surprise and inspire us through their mental capacity for things we often find exclusively human. You know, things like emotion, empathy, the capacity for creativity and whatnot. What is most surprising to see is the fact that animals understand and partake in what we view as art and culture. Believe it or not, but this cute blind elephant prefers to dance to classical music Image credits: Paul Barton Take this for example: A British musician by the name of Paul Barton dragged out a piano into the middle of …

That ‘LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder’ meme was started by none other than Dolly Parton

(CNN)Dolly Parton didn’t need to add “social media prowess” to her laundry list of talents. She’s been gifting the public timeless zingers and Instagram-worthy photos before the app even existed. On January 21, the 74-year-old debuted her collage: For professional networking site LinkedIn, there’s Dolly in buttoned-up school marm mode. For family-friendly Facebook, Dolly in a jolly Christmas sweater. For aesthetics-driven Instagram, black-and-white Dolly in high-waisted bell bottoms and a guitar in hand. And for the dating app Tinder, Dolly in the bunny outfit she posed in for Playboy. “Get you a woman who can do it all,” she wrote, a phrase that’s already become a familiar internet proverb. She punctuated the sentence with a sly winking emoji, as if …

Pamela Anderson’s marriages: A look back

Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee were husband and wife before their fans knew they were dating.

Case for impeachment fails to disturb McConnell’s sweet dreams of acquittal

Adam Schiff eloquently made the Houses case that the republic is in danger from Donald Trump but Republicans reaction was heavy-lidded He fought. Oh, how he fought. But Mitch McConnells battle with drowsy eyelids was a lost cause. The 77-year-old senators head bobbed and drooped. An alarmed aide sat at his side, powerless, as McConnell surrendered to the arms of Morpheus. It was 1.40pm on Wednesday and the House impeachment manager Adam Schiff was in full flow, prosecuting the to Schiff, the house was on fire, the republic was in jeopardy and democracy itself was threatened by a president who would be king. Yet the response on one side of the aisle was insouciance and somnolence. Was it mere fatigue, …

Royal couple sought half-in half-out deal, but are out

Duke and Duchess of Suffolk have gone from stepping back as senior royals to stepping down After 10 days of turmoil over the future of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the outcome is, perhaps, not the half-in, half-out role the couple appear to have anticipated.

They felt they could continue to carry out their duties for Her Majesty the Queen, while having the future financial autonomy to work …

Twitch Has Become a Haven for Live Sports Piracy

As Liverpool soccer player Roberto Firmino clutched out the only goal of the club's December 21 FIFA Club World Cup match before a live audience of over 45,000, at least twice as many fans were tuned in somewhere better suited to FIFA 20, the videogame: the streaming platform Twitch. While the game roiled on, three of the top 10 livestreams listed in Twitch’s directory were simulcasts of the FIFA Club World Cup match—with 14,000, 33,000, and 53,000 viewers respectively. The usual Twitch suspects filled out the rest of the list: a couple of Fortnite streams, a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, and, a little cutely, a livestream of FIFA 20. The pirated sports streams were live for hours and hours. The …

Harry and Meghan legal warning latest twist in royal paparazzi feud

Tensions between the Duke of Sussex and the press go back to the death of his mother The publication of photographs showing the Duchess of Sussex with her baby son in Canada has prompted a warning by the royal couples lawyers against running images taken in such circumstances. The warning comes as a debate over paparazzi photos was reignited after some sections of the press broke a self-imposed embargo introduced after the death of Prince Harrys mother, Diana, more than two decades ago. Since then, there has been a long running, often bitter feud between Prince Harry and the paparazzi. Here is some of the background. How did the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, change the British media? No …
