Instagram is taking new steps to woo some of its highest profile users. 

The app is testing "creator accounts," which would add new analytics and messaging features geared toward influencers and other power users of the photo-sharing app.

The update is currently being tested and will roll out more broadly next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  It will offer influencers an alternative to Instagram business profiles, which the company introduced in 2016, Instagram wrote in a statement.

"Increasingly, creators rely on Instagram to connect with followers and grow their personal brands, however the tools that are currently available to businesses today make it difficult for them to track their growth and engagement over time. We're building the new Creator Account to help solve some of those challenges and make it easier for creators to grow their personal brands on Instagram,” the announcement reads. Read more...

President Buhari has given reasons for refusing to assent to the Electoral (Amendment) Bill, 2018 recently passed by the National Assembly for the third time. Last week, President Buhari rejected the amended electoral bill. In a letter sent to the senate which was read during plenary today December 11th, President Buhari said he rejected the amendment because any amendment could cause an uncertainty into the electoral process for the 2019 election. Read what he said below“Pursuant to Section 58 (4) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), I hereby convey to the Senate, my decision on 6th December 2018 to decline Presidential Assent to the Electoral (Amendment) Bill, 2018 recently passed by the National Assembly.“I am declining assent to the Bill principally because I am concerned that passing a new electoral bill this far into the electoral process for the 2019 general elections, which commenced under the 2015 Electoral Act, could create some uncertainty about the applicable legislation to govern the process.“Any real or apparent change to the rules this close to the election may provide an opportunity for disruption and confusion in respect of which law governs the electoral process.“This leads me to believe that it is in the best interest of the country and our democracy for the National Assembly to specifically state in the Bill that the Electoral Act will come into effect and be applicable to elections commencing after the 2019 General Elections. It is also important for the following drafting amendments to be made to the Bill:”A. Section 5 of the Bill, amending section 18 of the Principal Act should indicate the subsection to which the substitution of the figure ’30” for the figure “60” is to be effected.”“B. Section 11 of the Bill, amending Section 36 should indicate the subsection in which the provision is to be introduced.“C. Section 24 of the Bill which amends Section 85(1) should be redrafted in full as the introduction of the “electing” to the sentence may be interpreted to mean that the political parties may give 21 days’ notice of the .. intention to merge, as opposed to the 90 days provided in Section 84(2) of the Electoral Act which provides the provision for merger of political parties.”“D. The definition of the term “Ward Collection Officer” should be revised to reflect a more descriptive definition than the capitalized and undefined term “Registration Area Collation Officer'' he said  The post President Buhari gives reasons for rejecting the electoral amendment bill appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

NASA wants Steph Curry to know that yes, the moon landing was real, and they're even inviting him to check out some space rocks to prove it.

During an interview on the podcast "Winging It," the Golden State Warriors star revealed that he doesn't believe the United States has been to the moon. 

About 46 minutes into the episode, he abruptly changed the conversation topic from what sounds dinosaurs made to space exploration.

"We ever been to the moon?" Curry asked. 

The group, including Atlanta Hawks players Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore, and Curry's teammate Andre Iguodala, concluded with a unanimous "Nope."  Read more...

Movie audiences love women. 

According to a study by Creative Arts Agency and shift7, films with women in leading roles earn more than their male counterparts at the box office, a finding which should lead to a major paradigm shift in show business.

“The perception that it’s not good business to have female leads is not true,” CAA agent Christy Haubegger told The New York Times. “They’re a marketing asset.”

CAA and shift7 examined 350 top box office films from 2014 to 2017, defining "lead actor" as the first performer credited in official press materials (also of note: most of these films passed the Bechdel test). 105 of these were women. In every category broken down by budget, films with women in the lead outperformed those starring men.  Read more...

Some people have a hard time staying in one place. For PC gamers, this has long been a challenge. Since desktop setups were the gold standard for so long, the more powerful rigs have often required that PC gamers stay in one spot — or else lug a heavy tower, monitor, and more with them.

The good news? The latest crop of gaming laptops make it possible to play wherever you are, as they easily rival desktops in both power and performance. If you're shopping for a gamer this holiday season, it's an important point to consider. Are they the kind to stay in one place and build out their setup? Or do they like to easily pick up and go?
