Hollywood actresses and women from around the U.S., some being key members of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, have shown their support for Christine Blasey Ford.

Blasey, a professor at California's Palo Alto University, who recently accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has seen significant public support after she made the difficult decision to publicly share her story.

Now, the likes of Julianne Moore, America Ferrera, Gabrielle Union, Amber Tamblyn, Eva Longoria, Jamia Wilson, and Marisa Tomei, along with many other women from different situations, all read the same supportive letter to Ford, in a video posted to Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday with the hashtag #DearProfessorFord.

Everyone's made a typo in their life, including international airlines.

Cathay Pacific gained plenty of internet attention after a new paint job on one of its planes resulted in the misspelling of the airline's name.

Someone unfortunately forgot to include the "F" in the name, leaving it to be read as "Cathay Paciic." 

According to the South China Morning Post, the error was first spotted on the Hong Kong Aviation Discussion Board. At least Cathay Pacific found it funny too.

Oops this special livery won’t last long! She’s going back to the shop!

 Portuguese striker, Cristiano Ronaldo left the pitch in tears as he received a  red card following an off-the-ball clash with an opponent during Juventus and Valencia clash on Wednesday night. The 33-year-old flicked his boot at Jeison Murillo as they clashed together in the 29th minute and the defender fell to the floor. The Portugal forward then appeared to pull Murillo’s hair in an attempt to lift him off the ground and the Valencia players immediately protested to the fifth official behind the goal.  After Referee Felix Brych consulted with his colleague, he gave Ronaldo a red card, leaving the footballer in tears as he made his way down the tunnel.The red card was Ronaldo's 11th red card of his career but first in the Champions League.Watch the incident below."You can't do that!""I think he's got room to appeal.."A much clearer angle of Cristiano Ronaldo's red card, and it's still dividing opinion... pic.twitter.com/U034bcKuq0— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) September 19, 2018The post Cristiano Ronaldo leaves pitch in tears after receiving red card for grabbing opponent by the hair on Champions League debut for Juventus (Video) appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

Is YouTube deleting those popular pro-Trump video compilations mocking Democrats and liberals “melting down” over Donald Trump’s 2016 election night win?

No, but a conspiracy theory is gaining traction on Reddit alleging just that.

On /r/The_Donald, Reddit’s main Trump community consisting of more than 650,000 members, a post detailing yet another manufactured case of tech’s “anti-conservative bias” has taken off. “HAPPENING: YouTube is CURRENTLY mass censoring and deleting videos of the 2016 election night meltdown,” the post, which currently has more than 5,000 upvotes, states. “Take a look yourself. What was previously filled with compilations and clips of Democrats losing their minds has been replaced with MSM outlets. Find what you can and save.”  Read more...

I first tried out Microsoft HoloLens a few years ago, a few months before its launch as a developer tool, and came away with similar impressions that many tech journalists had at the time: the tech was intriguing and impressive in some ways, but its limited field of view diminished the experience considerably.

I’ve used HoloLens a few times since then at demos and events, and although there have been improvements, they haven’t changed fundamental experience — or its limitations.

Magic Leap, which launched its developer hardware in August, provoked similar reactions. Although the product is different from HoloLens in many ways — it’s more steampunk goggles than futuristic visor, and you need to carry around a small hockey-puck computer to make it work — most people who had hands-on time with the device had similar observations: Here was a very promising augmented-reality experience that also suffers from field-of-view limitations and a lack of compelling software (although the latter criticism may have changed on Wednesday, with the release of a Magic Leap version of Angry Birds Read more...

It probably wasn't the smartest move. 

Roughly 24 hours after a major report from the New York state attorney general's office led officials to declare that the cryptocurrency exchange Kraken is "possibly operating unlawfully in New York," the exchange apparently decided the best response was to thumb its nose at state officials.

In a series of tweets from both the official Kraken Twitter account and the company's co-founder and CEO, Jesse Powell, the San Francisco-based exchange made it clear that it's not taking this report seriously — at all.

Everybody get up, the Space Jam sequel is suddenly stacked

With no casting beyond LeBron James and Bugs Bunny, the upcoming sports-comedy-cartoon followup will now be produced by Ryan Coogler. Terence Nance (Random Acts of Flyness) will direct.

The addition of Coogler has fans buzzing, since as a director he is known for more serious fare – even Black Panther, a superhero blockbuster, was layered with sociopolitical nuance. Nance, whose main directing credit is the experimental film The Oversimplification of Her Beauty, is an interesting and intriguing choice to direct. Read more...

Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Jeff Bridges participated in a "bed-in" to promote peace and student activism at New York City Hall. This emulated the Bed-Ins for Peace that Lennon and Ono organized in 1969 to protest the Vietnam War.

The event celebrates the launch of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus residency in New York City. The bus is a high-tech music and video production studio on wheels, traveling to help mentor students in musics and the arts. Read more...
