Trump Flashes Wide Smile With Goya Products In Post Violating Federal Ethics



Image via Donald Trump

Donald Trump shared a photo that might just make his supporters buy up all the Goya beans.

Despite it being a federal ethics violation, the US president proceeded to share an image of himself promoting the bean brand on social media. He appeared to loom over a range of Goya products that were lined on his desk in the Oval Office. He gave a two thumbs up to the camera, while flashing a dazzling smile.

His daughter, Ivanka Trump, previously tweeted an image of herself holding a can of Goya beans, as well. According to Mashable, federal officials are not allowed to use their positions to sponsor products.

After Goya’s CEO Robert Unanue announced his support for Trump in a press conference, many Hispanic households who were customers of Goya’s products vowed to boycott the company, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Some social media users voiced out that Trump’s latest photo was meant to distract people from more severe issues the country is facing, such as the coronavirus pandemic and police brutality. Check out responses from Twitter users below.

the Russian bounty scandal

Gigi Hadid Gives Fans A Peek At Baby Bump & Reveals Why She Keeps It Under Wraps



Image via FashionStock.com / Shutterstock.com

Gigi Hadid gave fans a peek at her growing baby bump on Instagram Live for the first time.

During an interview with V Magazine about her new journal, the supermodel decided to flash her bump while wearing a flowy green and white blouse. “There’s my belly y’all,” Hadid said, proclaiming, “Like, it’s there.”

Hadid had been relatively quiet about her pregnancy on social media, but assured fans that she’s “good and safe.” She also revealed the reason as to why she decided to keep her journey as an expectant mother on low profile.

“I think a lot of people are confused why I’m not sharing more, but I’m pregnant through a pandemic,” she said. “My pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world.”

She added that she would like people to put all their attention on paramount issues like the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement, instead of her pregnancy.

“A lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening,” she explained. “And then we moved obviously into the re-emergence of the BLM movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”

Hadid then assured fans that she will be sharing photos of her growing “in the future.” She has been taking a lot of photos to document the journey and is sharing it with her friends and family.

Spotify users can now have playlists with customizable covers as soundtracks for their relationships.

With the new Duo Love Songs tool, partners can answer a series of personality-based questions to have their relationships gauged by the streaming platform, and then upload cover photos to symbolize their unique unions.

The site will then generate a playlist that will appear on their Spotify accounts, filling it with tracks ranging from hits from the past to pop jams from the 2010s.

The site was created in light of Spotify’s latest Premium Duo plan, which allows two users to share a single US$12.99 subscription. The Duo plan also includes a specialized Duo MIx playlist based on members’ listening habits.

Edward Colston’s Defaced Statue Gets Replaced With Sculpture Of BLM Protester



Image via Joyce Nelson / Shutterstock.com

Last month, anti-racism protestors toppled and tossed the statue of slave trader Edward Colston down the harbor in Bristol. Now, the empty spot has been replaced with an unofficial resin-and-steel figure of Jen Reid, a Black Lives Matter protestor, created by artist Marc Quinn.

An image of Reid standing on the plinth with her fist raised after the incident last month had gone viral, impelling Quinn to make a black resin and steel sculpture of her, entitled A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020.

“I wanted to give George Floyd power, I wanted to give power to Black people like me who have suffered injustices and inequality. A surge of power out to them all,” Quinn explained his idea behind the sculpture on Instagram.

Quinn had contacted Reid via social media to discuss the creation of the sculpture. During the early morning on 15 July 2020, the sculpture was erected by a team under the artist to present “a powerful image” to stand up against racism.

It is, however, a temporary monument as it was unofficially placed on the plinth, but Reid told Sky News that the woman was “filled with pride” for being the inspiration behind the empowering sculpture.

Today, Bristol resident Jen Reid and I have unveiled a new temporary, public installation, ‘A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020’, on top of Edward Colston’s empty plinth in Bristol, England. This life-sized sculpture is based on an image I saw on Instagram of local resident Jen Reid standing on the vacant plinth with her fist raised in a Black Power salute, a spontaneous moment following a Black Lives Matter protest in June 2020. During the protest, a statue of 17th century slave trader Edward Colston was toppled from this spot. Cast in black resin, this new sculpture ‘A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020’ takes its place – no formal consent has been sought for the installation.

I’d first like to thank Jen for collaborating with me on A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020 at every point in the process of making this new temporary public artwork. The sculpture’s title comes from Jen’s powerful description of her experience of standing on the plinth: “It was like an electrical charge of power was running through me. My immediate thoughts were for the enslaved people who died at the hands of Colston and to give them power. I wanted to give George Floyd power, I wanted to give power to Black people like me who have suffered injustices and inequality. A surge of power out to them all.” I would also like to thank @mtec0 for the amazing job that they did with their swift and safe installation, in the early hours of this morning. #marcquinnart

"It looks like it belongs there."

Black Lives Matter supporter Jen Reid says she's "filled with pride" after she was the inspiration for a sculpture that now sits on the empty plinth where a slave trader's statue once stood.

Samsung Teases 6G With Its Possibilities For Holograms & ‘Digital Twins’



Image via Shutterstock

Most people don’t have 5G access yet, but there’s already a 6G on the horizon. Samsung appears to be extremely amped up about this technology, and has even published a full 46-page PDF predicting what it might be able to do.

The South Korean tech giant expects that 6G connectivity will be ready for the masses in 2028, two years ahead of when scientists believe it will be made available. 6G is touted to feature faster mobile broadband and accurate low latency communications between autonomous vehicles, among other qualities.

Samsung foresees that 6G connectivity will be able to produce peak data rates of 1,000Gbps—50 times that of 5G’s 20Gbps—as well as reach 10 times more connected devices within a square kilometer.

Here comes the exciting part. The tech leader expects that 6G will back computer vision technologies that surpass the perception of the human eye, being able to support equipment combining multiple cameras to simultaneously process data at multiple angles, resolutions, and speeds, while the human eye can only see so far.

It also forecasts that 6G will introduce “truly immersive” extended reality to the masses, and will even be able to generate holograms spanning mobile and volumetric sizes.

Also be prepared to meet your “digital twin” or “digital replica,” as Samsung predicts people, objects, and places can be fully recreated “to explore and monitor the reality in a virtual world, without temporal or spatial constraints” in the future with 6G support. It believes that, in time, humans might be able to travel to places through their digital versions.

Samsung anticipates that the global standard for 6G will start being established in 2021, with a “massive commercialization” arriving “as early as 2028.” According to Venture Beat, this pretty much matches the eight-year timeframe of 5G’s introduction to the world.

‘Unwoke’ Job Platform Gets Mocked & Hacked To Display Bizarre Job Opportunities



Image via Shutterstock

Unwoke.hr calls itself a “job board for conservatives, libertarians and free thinkers.” The website shuns “wokeness” and activism, while encouraging managers to “watch your work competition implode” by hiring staff from the site.

This week, the job recruitment site was hacked and trolled with anti-racism memes, images and bizarre job listings, including “Farty Fart” and “Professional F**k Up.”

It was rather easy for visitors to take over the website as it doesn’t verify CVs or listings before being posted. So, predictably, many went on to post ridiculous job opportunities with fake profiles.

The company went on Twitter to acknowledge the website takeover, and within 30 minutes, someone had hacked the site to display a crossed-out swastika and a video game meme known as ‘Big Chungus’.

The platform became unusable for a moment due to the hack. However, it has now returned to normal with ordinary openings.

Check out some of the ridiculous job listings posted during the takeover below.

Amazon Had Kids Draw 18+ Show Ads Based On Their Titles—They Didn’t Disappoint

[Click here to view the video in this article]



Video screenshot via Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video in France has discovered a new way to advertise its mature television shows. It has enlisted children to draw the ads for television programs by only supplying them with titles and no other context.

The Parental Control campaign cleverly promotes Amazon Prime Video’s parental control settings by showcasing innocent drawings by children for television shows, which are, in reality, far beyond rainbows and bursts of sunshine.

The campaign features videos of the children drawing and explaining their ideas of the TV shows.

Six-year-old Jade drew her ad for The Boys, which featured her dad playing soccer with another person. She added “a bad guy” because there’s one “in every cartoon or film… but in the end, they lose, and the good guys win.”

Marilou, who is also six years old, was assigned to reimagine The Man in the High Castle. She presented a high castle with lots of colors and confetti, unaware of Adolf Hitler’s inclusion in the show.

Five-year-old Thiago had to illustrate his interpretation of Carnival Row, so he decided to draw fireworks to represent a party. However, the show is a lot darker than a regular carnival.

The resulting posters were also displayed outdoors to advertise the streaming site’s parental control feature.

Princess Diana Gets Crowned Most Attractive Royal With Her ‘Golden-Ratio’ Beauty



Image via mark reinstein / Shutterstock.com

Princess Diana is the “most beautiful royal of all time,” according to ancient Greek “Golden Ratio” measurements.

Surgeon Dr Julian De Silva ran a Golden Ratio analysis on a few well-known royal figures, and it turns out that the late Princess Diana has the highest score. Diana obtained the closest to a 100-percent score of the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, a device used back in ancient Greece to measure attractiveness.

The technique was developed into a computerized facial mapping system by Dr De Silva, who has been using the technology in his work.

He concluded that Princess Diana is the most attractive, followed by Queen Rania of Jordan. The late Grace Kelly of Monaco came third in the list, followed by Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton respectively.

The computerized technique measured the royals’ physical features, including their eyes, nose, lips, chins and facial shapes, to see who most matched the “Greeks’ idea of physical attractiveness.”

Dr De Silva, who runs the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in London, said that “Diana, Meghan and Kate are all very beautiful women.”

Princess Diana obtained a score of 89 percent, Queen Rania, 88.9 percent, and Grace Kelly got 88.8 percent. Meghan Markle came in fourth with 87.4 percent, while Kate Middleton had a 86.8-percent mark.

“Diana scored highly for her face shape, the width of her nose, her brow area and her eyebrows. Her lowest scores were for her chin and lips,” Dr De Silva explained.

“Meghan [Markle] has a beautiful facial symmetry, an almost perfectly shaped nose and a gorgeous V-shaped chin,” he described. “Kate has the perfect gap between her nose and lips and has very strong eye spacing.”

Donald Trump Jr Unwittingly Turns Tables On Dad In Brutal Ad Using His Remarks

[Click here to view the video in this article]



Image via mark reinstein / Shutterstock.com

Donald Trump Jr.’s attacks on Joe Biden have been unexpectedly used to point out the “hypocrisy” of his father in a new brutal ad.

The ad titled Bye Don Jr. was shared online by the progressive political action committee, MeidasTouch.

The clip includes criticism over the US coronavirus death toll under the Trump administration and supporters “who don’t want him,” which has been spun to refer to Donald Trump. “The guy is the epitome of the swamp,” Trump Jr. says in the ad. “The entire family have enriched themselves.”

Trump Jr.’s insults about Biden’s stutter have also been used to show how Trump had struggled to pronounce words such as “anonymous.” He is shown declaring, “There’s no enthusiasm, he can’t get people to show up at a rally. Honestly, they don’t want him on the teleprompter because he can’t even get that right.”

The team behind the commercial called out Trump Jr. to be among “the most vile and cancerous individuals to ever disgrace America.”

“The Trump children represent the blend of incompetence, entitlement and cringeworthy hypocrisy that has propelled America into disaster we are now in under Trump,” MeidasTouch described.

The ad does a great job at using Trump Jr.’s words to depict how President Trump and his family might have done the things they have accused Biden of.

The video went viral online, causing the hashtag ‘#ByeDonJr’ to trend on Twitter.

Let’s make sure that the first thing Donald Trump Jr. sees when he logs onto Twitter today is this video trending at #1. #ByeDonJr pic.twitter.com/3r9V7T5vBX

Ivanka Trump’s Ad Of Her Posing With Can Of Goya Beans Sparks Photoshop Battle



Image via Ivanka Trump’s Instagram

Ivanka Trump, White House adviser and eldest daughter of Donald Trump, used her social media account to promote Goya Beans with a photo of herself holding the product. Soon, Reddit users began a Photoshop battle to edit the photo in the most ridiculous ways.

Ivanka’s promotion of Goya Beans has been criticized as a violation of federal ethics regulations, as officials are not supposed to use their positions to advertise products.

Her post was captioned as, “If it’s Goya, it has to be good. Si es Goya, tiene que ser bueno.”

Reddit users, however, had a field day going out of their way to create the most outrageous remixes of Ivanka Trump holding the Goya Beans.

In one edit, Ivanka is imagined to have attained the Guinness World Record for holding the most Goya Beans cans. In another, she takes on the role of Marge from The Simpsons with the character’s quote, “I just think they’re neat,” at the bottom.

Check out some of the edits that birthed from the Photoshop battle below.

MUJI Unveils Furniture Subscription So You Can Rent Out Fixtures For WFH & More



Image via MUJI

For those who can’t wait to check MUJI’s hotels off their bucket lists, this might be the closest alternative you can get until the COVID-19 situation subsides—but that’s not to say it’s any less superior. The Japanese homeware company reputed for its quality “brandless” items is rolling out a subscription service to let you rent its furniture. Imagine waking up to, and working in, a home filled with MUJI products every day.

With traditional corporate values embedded in their culture, the Japanese are expectedly grappling with new work-from-home arrangements. MUJI is addressing this challenge with a furniture subscription program called ‘Petite Renovation’ to help workers adjust to remote-working as their new normal.

The subscription service will allow members to rent out items and sets for offices, bedrooms, and lounges for up to four years through monthly or annual payments, with subscriptions starting from JP¥800 (US$7.50) per month.

After the rental period is up, customers can decide if they’d like to return, purchase, or extend the use of the products.

The concept makes sense for the Japanese lifestyle. Apartments in Japan’s urban areas can be quite cramped, and the nation’s legendary minimalist habits are often necessary. The idea of obtaining furniture without fully owning them would be an attractive one there, indeed. Also, customers can use this opportunity to test if a piece of MUJI furniture is up to their expectations, or if they’d like to incorporate it into their homes.

The initiative will first be available in major Japanese cities before rolling out elsewhere.

Unfortunately, there’s no word on whether the program will be introduced in other parts of the world yet. It’s less likely to be in MUJI’s foreseeable plans for the United States, where the company recently filed for bankruptcy. MUJI USA is currently working on a restructuring model, and plans to shut down less profitable stores in the near future.

In the meantime, you might like to take this quiz that assesses how you can improve your work-from-home environment, if rentable MUJI products are still out of reach.

Nissan Glows Up With 2D Logo That Beams, Its First New Brand Design In 20 Years

[Click here to view the video in this article]



Image via Nissan

Nissan aspires to outshine its longstanding metallic logo with a simplified version that’s ready for a “digital world” without switching too many gears from its heritage.

The new logo is the Japanese automaker’s first new one in 20 years. Word of the redesign first got out when trademark applications for it appeared in some markets back in March.

The brand identity overhaul was actually two years in the making. Under the direction of the company’s advanced design department deputy general manager Tsutomu Matsuo and global design senior vice president Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s designers embarked on a rebrand based on three keywords—“thin, light and flexible”—in 2017.

The acceleration toward the electric car era some two decades later introduced a couple of new challenges: the logomark had to also stand out on electric vehicles—plus in Nissan’s vision, it had to glow. Meanwhile, the logo needed to give off a “strong impression when not illuminated,” whether across digital or paper formats.

Albaisa detailed that the team drew inspiration from “breakthroughs in science, technology and connectivity—how these have brought fundamental changes to customers.”

Nissan’s team explained that the design process started out with an illuminated 3D look which was later distilled to 2D using the lit-up part as an outline. This presented four variations of the new logo, two with shadows and two without.

For a clear appearance across electric vehicles, the designers also had to determine the right thickness to attain a “clear impression when lit” while respecting government regulations for illuminated details on cars.

Not forgetting its heritage, the brand honored the motto Nissan founder Yoshisuke Aikawa had set for the previous logo: “If you have a strong belief, it penetrates even the sun.” Nissan made this “strong belief” known by embracing its fundamental elements of a circle and a horizontal plate encasing the brand name.

The final result, in Nissan’s words, is “more designed than manufactured,” with “the flexibility to live in multiple worlds.” While the flat redesign doesn’t deviate too far from the old appearance, Nissan believes the adjustments move the logo from possessing a “hard-edged, industrial feel to a refined, familiar and digital-friendly look.”

At the same time the logo redesign was announced, Nissan unveiled the Ariya electric vehicle range—its “first all-electric crossover SUV”—and appropriately commemorated both debuts by presenting the new logomark on Ariya models and lighting it up with 20 LEDs to mark 20 years since the last design. The 2D logo will appear on future vehicles.

The rebrand officially kicks off both digitally and offline this month. A visually intriguing video titled A New Day for Nissan, shown below, flaunts the new logo as objects of nature, such as cherry blossoms and greenery.

Krispy Kreme Boxes Can Be Upcycled Into Easy Face Shields With A Little Tape

The next time someone shames you for buying too many doughnuts, just tell them you’re doing your part to protect the community during the pandemic, and then cut that person out of your life.

If you have a penchant for Krispy Kreme’s golden-brown pillows of joy, the icing on the cake glaze on the doughnut is that its packaging can easily be recycled into a face shield with some tape, as demonstrated in a quick video tutorial by Australian musician Andy Clockwise.

The technique is manageable even for those who don’t consider crafting their strong suit. You’ll just need to clean any leftover doughnut grease from the lid of a 12-piece box, before cutting, folding, and taping the packaging into a face shield that lets you wear your love for the classic sweets out.

Kim Kardashian modeled for her brand SKIMS’ new solution wear line on Instagram.

The 39-year-old was seen wearing the skin-tight halter top with matching undergarments in a limousine. The items are available on SKIMS’ Body collection.

The reality star also showed off her new maroon tresses and sported her signature nude lip with warm-toned eye-makeup for the photoshoot. The images were shot by photographer Indiana, who has also shared his favorite photo from the project.

The clothing line was created to offer shapewear with comfort in mind. The new collection includes briefs, tank tops, thongs, bras, and bralettes. All of the items come in four shades: beige, pastel green, dusty pink, and black—named as bone, talc, sienna, and soot respectively.

The new collection is available on 14 July 2020 on SKIMS’ website.
