Huffington Post - about 1 month
Morgan Freeman has been up close and personal with God as a character in films, but his own experience of the divine is more nuanced than his playful portrayals might suggest. These days, he’s exploring questions about faith and the Almighty in the National Geographic show “The Story of God With Morgan Freeman.” The show takes Freeman around the world, interacting with people of faith and investigating religious concepts that have intrigued philosophers for centuries. The first season aired in the spring of 2016 and became National Geographic’s most-watched series of all time. On Monday, Season 2 will premiere with Freeman exploring a fresh set of theological questions. “We’re dealing with esoterica here, things that are more internal than external. So there are always going to be more questions,” Freeman told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. “It’s one of those situations where the more you delve into it the deeper it gets.” The second season features just three episod ...

Mark Zuckerberg made a Facebook employee 3D-print a mini version of his dog
Yahoo News - about 1 month
If Mark Zuckerberg's dog could grasp the concepts of marketing and technology, he'd probably object to his starring role in Facebook's latest video. But alas, Beast is just a cute Silicon Valley dog, and so here we are. To celebrate Beast's 6th birthday — HBD, li'l guy — Facebook made an Oculus employee 3D-print a miniature version of the unofficial company dog.  SEE ALSO: 2016: The year Facebook became the bad guy Zuckerberg posted the video to his page on Tuesday: It is, in essence, an ad for Oculus Medium, a new VR product that Facebook touts as a tool for artists and creators. To show off the product's capabilities, the video follows an Oculus artist as he designs a mini version of the dog (a white Puli) before sending it to print in Facebook's hardware lab.  "Beast was pretty confused, but I love that we have the technology and culture where people just make things like this for fun," Zuckerberg wrote. "And I think it's pretty good!" This isn't the first time Facebook marketing ha ...

It Could Be Decades Before We Say 'Madam President'
Huffington Post - 2 months
Are you surprised that America elected a black president before a female president? Given the history of servitude, institutional racism and implicit bias that blacks have experienced, you might think that the odds tilt heavily in favor of women when it comes to electing a president.  But you’d be wrong. Black men were granted the right to vote decades before women. In 1870, the 15th Amendment granted citizens the right to vote regardless of their “race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” In 1920, the 19th Amendment finally granted voting rights not just to men but to all citizens. Black citizens had 50 years to figure out our political system before women could even vote. But time alone doesn’t completely explain the advantage blacks have over women on Election Day. Social science tells us that the traits of a strong leader like assertiveness, dominance and confidence are more likely to be masculine traits than feminine traits. In fact, our research has found that ...

This Is What Women Really Think of Your Cologne
Huffington Post - 3 months
By Max Berlinger for GQ. A trio of models weigh in on fall's newest scents. While choosing a fragrance may be an incredibly personal endeavor — like picking out your outfit, or what you do in the shower — there's no denying that it effects those within your direct vicinity. And most importantly for guys, it has an impact on women who may come within sniffing distance. Knowing that, we brought in a trio of models to GQ HQ (nice work if you can get it, eh?) to smell some of the latest colognes to hit the market and tell us what they think about them, and about men's fragrances in general. Here's what we found. 9 New Colognes To Help You Smell Your Best This Fall Lisa Marie Jaftha Agency: Major Instagram: @lisamariejaftha Do you like it when a guy wears cologne? Yes, of course.

To Be Young, Gay And Black: The Beautiful Importance Of 'Moonlight'
Huffington Post - 4 months
“Moonlight” is a lyric poem in three stanzas. It’s a movie for everyone who’s ever clung to shards of hope in the midst of dejection. It’s a tale of breathtaking simplicity and heartrending intricacy. And it may be the most important thing to appear on a big screen this year.  It’s an annual tradition for film festivals to produce a smattering of titles that rise above the cinematic void. Rarely are they received as rapturously as “Moonlight,” the coming-of-age drama written and directed by Barry Jenkins (”Medicine for Melancholy”). The praise has been unanimous and warranted.  “Right before the movie premiered at Telluride, I kind of made a note to myself that I was proud of the film and proud of the work that we did, and I’m going to try to just live in that headspace,” Jenkins said during a conversation in New York two weeks ago. “It’s still the same film it was a month ago and the same film it was when we wrapped on set. I try to remember that and keep it all in perspective ...

Robert Downey Jr. Volunteers To Voice Mark Zuckerberg's Real-Life Jarvis
Huffington Post - 4 months
Robert Downey Jr. has volunteered as tribute. Sorry, wrong franchise. Let’s start over. Robert Downey Jr. has offered to lend his signature voice help Mark Zuckerberg bring his personal AI assistant to life.  Every year, the Facebook founder sets new goals for himself ― learning Mandarin, meeting a new person every day, wearing a long sleeve T-shirt ― and in 2016 he pledged to create his own AI to “run my home and help me with my work.” “You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man,” he wrote in a post shortly after the new year.  On Thursday, Zuckerberg gave an update on the project by crowd sourcing opinions on who should voice the personal AI. Followers chimed in with suggestions like Arnold Schwarzenegger (aggressive), Morgan Freeman (long shot) and Judi Dench (PERFECT), but in the end, Downey reigned supreme.  After multiple commenters suggested that given his “Iron Man” pedigree Downey would be the best choice, the actor responded that he’d d ...
