But the price she paid for popularity was death Pakistans first celebrity-by-social media, Qandeel Baloch, was known for the videos and photographs she posted on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

5 NYC Workouts That Have Amazing Deals On ClassPass Betches

Working out in NYC tends to get way more expensive and complicated than it should. Basically, it has all the bougie, celeb-studded options of LA, but none of the free, nature-y options of LA (hiking, beach running, chasing down Kardashians—you get it). Sure, you could dodge tourists in Central Park, but your patience will be getting more of a workout than you are. And IMO, all the hidden fees and rush hours involved in traditional gym memberships are a pain. So, in the interest of getting the best workouts for the best price, you sign up for ClassPass—only to discover that half the options there are just as expensive as booking regular classes. That’s where I come in. I’ve tracked …

15-year-old Cori ‘Coco’ Gauff extends remarkable run at Wimbledon

Wimbledon (CNN)Even a late change of location Wednesday couldn’t halt the momentum of Cori Gauff, the teenager making history virtually every time she steps onto Wimbledon’s fabled grass.

The key to avoiding sexual shame online: reveal it all first

Foil sextortion scams, deepfakes and revenge porn by simply posting your own nude shots. By Eva Wiseman A little while ago I got an email saying my computer camera had been hacked, theyd taped me watching interesting porn, and unless I transferred cash immediately, theyd send the video to all my contacts. Which porn, I wondered idly. Was it the late-night scrolls of modernist houses splayed across Californian hills, the sensual greenery of Instagram plantfluencers, or the staccato clicks through embroidered folk art on eBay, quickly minimised when my boyfriend entered the room? The email dropped into hundreds of colleagues inboxes at the same time and it was possible to gauge their viewing habits and the membranous walls of their …
