TheSkimm and Brit + Co founders say they don’t need Facebook to thrive
And they say that they’ve been able to thrive online independent of how they are treated on Facebook. “Brit + Co has a very diversified traffic pie,” Morin said, calling out its audience on Pinterest, where readers might enjoy a before-and-after photograph of a remodeled kitchen but not a heated conversation about politics. “We aren’t reliant on Facebook — however, we play there, for sure. We try to find the pockets of communities that do love the things that we have to offer them.” Morin started her millennial lifestyle company at age 25, and she now reaches more than 130 million people a month.

How I cleaned up my embarrassing Twitter history
On this utterly mortifying experience down memory lane, I managed to successfully locate and delete a few embarrassing rants, some ice-cold takes, and several horribly nerdy hashtags I now regret. For all my future Twitter stalkers will know, I’ve always been this cool! Revisiting past tweets revealed some harsh truths about my social media usage: In my younger years I tweeted too often and way too freely. I utilized very little self-control when deciding which parts of my life to share. Post-cleanup, I feel much better about my online presence. If you're in any doubt about your online past, I highly suggest you search your own Twitter archive and do the same.  Here's how: [ED NOTE: Probably useful for all of us]

Kevin Durant’s new series examines the fraught world of youth hoops
Kevin Durant’s new series examines the fraught world of youth hoops http://ift.tt/2EoIHlp Prospective https://images.fastcompany.net/image/upload/w_1280,q_auto,f_auto,fl_lossy/wp-cms/uploads/2018/02/poster-p-1-Kevin-Durant’s-new-series-examines-the-fraught-world-of-youth-hoops.jpg February 13, 2018 at 09:06PM

In addition to being one of the two best basketball players in the world, Golden State Warriors star and 2017 NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant is also a budding producer.

Last month, via his Thirty-Media production company, Durant unveiled plans to support other athletes’ ambitions for YouTube stardom. This, after his own YouTube channel netted more than a half million subscribers and 21 million views in just nine months.

Now, Durant is diving back into his own projects with Swagger, a dramatic series that delves into Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball in Washington, D.C. The show looks at the balance between “dreams and ambition, and ambition and corruption” that surrounds players, their families, and coaches. Boys between 7 and 19 play in AAU leagues around the country, and the organization has produced countless NBA players.

Swagger will be written and directed by NAACP Image Award winner Reggie Rock Bythewood, produced by Image Television and Thirty-Five Media, and executive produced by Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo, Durant, and Rich Keiman. Apple is helping develop the series.

In addition to producing, Durant is also developing a career as a tech investor. Among his many initiatives is his recent investment in the Silicon Valley drone developer Skydio.

Haven’t made a pre-V-Day condom run yet? Sustain’s got you covered
Haven’t made a pre-V-Day condom run yet? Sustain’s got you covered http://ift.tt/2EoIJK3 Prospective http://ift.tt/2F000dq February 13, 2018 at 09:11PM

In honor of Valentine’s Day, sexual health brand Sustain Natural is handing out free condoms all over New York. For the next two weeks, the company is mounting an outdoor ad campaign encouraging safe sex. Sustain’s ads are going up in multiple locations downtown, with the left side covered in condoms and, on the right, a press release from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting an increase in cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.

Once removed, the condoms will reveal an image of “what real, safe sex looks like,” according to Sustain.

“We’re here to shed light on the need for conversations and action around real, safe sex in a way that empowers women to literally take their sexual health into their own hands by buying and carrying condoms,” Sustain cofounder and CEO Meika Hollender said in a statement. As part of the campaign, Sustain will also be donating 50,000 condoms to the New York chapter of Planned Parenthood.

What we know about the lions that ate a suspected poacher — Quartz
What we know about the lions that ate a suspected poacher in South Africa http://ift.tt/2EqFndw Prospective http://ift.tt/2Enf2ZE February 13, 2018 at 09:01PM

A pride of lions that mauled a suspected poacher left his head for investigators, but it’s still unclear who he was, or if he was a poacher at all.

According to local news, the man’s remains were discovered on Friday near South Africa’s Kruger National Park in Limpopo province. An African correspondent for German news agency dpa reported that the man was mauled so badly that the police are still unable to identify him.

Initially, police suspected he was a local tractor driver who had been reported missing. But that man has since been found alive, leading to the poacher theory.

 Lions are extinct in seven African countries 

Various clues support that theory. He was found next to a loaded hunting rifle and ammunition. He was found in an area known for poaching, and was not carrying a permit on him. Shots were fired in what appears to be an attempt to distract the lions after the man screamed, but it was too late, a local source said.

Lion poaching in and around the Kruger park has reportedly increased in the last few years, due to big profits in the trade of lion body parts for medicinal use in Asia. Last July, several lions were found poisoned near a farm in the same province with their paws and heads removed, a few months after another group of lions were killed for their body parts in Polokwane, capital of the province. The Kruger park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves, home to lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalos.

Many on social media are lauding last Friday’s incident as the perfect “karma.” Animal poaching has been denigrated on social media periodically in the last few years, most famously in 2015 when the trophy killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe by a dentist from Minnesota sparked massive outrage, culminating in PETA calling for the hanging of the hunter.

The African lion population has decreased 43% in the last 21 years, and lions are extinct in seven African countries. Americans are particularly keen on hunting lions for trophies; at legal facilities in South Africa, about 90% of such killings are done by U.S. citizens, according to a 2016 report. Between 2005 and 2014, most of the African lion trophies came to the US from South Africa.
