Apple has hired Oprah Winfrey to create original content for Apple TV - Recode
Latest example: Apple says it has a “unique, multi-year content partnership” with Oprah Winfrey, who will “create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world.”
Apple didn’t offer any other details about what Winfrey would make and whether she would star in the stuff she makes for them, though it’s a very reasonable bet that she will. She’ll continue to work on other projects, like her Oprah Winfrey Network and CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
Also not spelled out in Apple’s brief message to the press: Whether the “content partnership” would extend beyond video projects.

InstaFraud: How fake Instagram 'influencers' are gaming brands for money - Hack - triple j
@wanderingggirl is into travel, camping, sunsets. @calibeachgirl310 is into fashion, bikinis, yoga. @wanderingggirl goes to Paris, @calibeachgirl310 ambles on the sands of Santa Monica.

But the two Instagram accounts, with more than 80,000 followers between them, have one big thing in common: they're both fictional, made up from stock photos and modelling snaps and a few hundred dollars worth of paid-for fake followers and engagement.

From March to July, the California-based Mediakix created the two profiles from scratch and secured four paid brand endorsement deals between them worth US$500 in total, including the value of free products. One national US food company was fooled by both profiles.

Influencers: consumer champions or dodgy bloggers?
“Having to say it is a paid partnership is quite unattractive for brands because it undermines the legitimacy of the transaction,” she says. “I think that is why people avoid it because the brands have potentially made bloggers feel it is unattractive.” 
She believes the public do not break down in their minds the commercial process of a traditional advert such as a billboard, whereas sponsored social media posts are placed under much more scrutiny. 
“When you look at someone’s Instagram, you are led to believe it is an insight into their personal life and their choices,” says Ms Austen. “As soon as you overlay something transactional, it makes people feel it is inauthentic because they suddenly question the view you are giving them.”

Instagram Influencers Are Driving Luxury Hotels Crazy - The Atlantic
Kate Jones, marketing and communications manager at the Dusit Thani, a five-star resort in the Maldives, said that her hotel receives at least six requests from self-described influencers per day, typically through Instagram direct message.

“Everyone with a Facebook these days is an influencer,” she said. “People say, I want to come to the Maldives for 10 days and will do two posts on Instagram to like 2,000 followers. It's people with 600 Facebook friends saying, ‘Hi, I'm an influencer, I want to stay in your hotel for 7 days,’” she said. Others send vague one-line emails, like “I want to collaborate with you,”with no further explanation. “These people are expecting five to seven nights on average, all inclusive. Maldives is not a cheap destination.” She said that only about 10 percent of the requests she receives are worth investigating.

We Need to Talk About Anthony Bourdain | Food & Wine
As I see it, you either have to deal with the slightly uncomfortable situation of having your line cook cry in front of you, or you cry at their funeral. I'm sorry to make it sound that dire, but it is.
Chefs die all the time, and no one talks about it. There are a million reasons for this, but the thing is that it happens constantly and it's only spoken of in hushed tones so no one gets upset. Other people's feelings are awkward, and we as a culture are exceptionally crappy at talking about them. We're all afraid of making things worse, or seeing someone in a different way, or having them see us in a vulnerable state. But as I see it, you either have to deal with the slightly uncomfortable situation of having your line cook cry in front of you, or you cry at their funeral. I'm sorry to make it sound that dire, but it is. Especially today.
Anthony Bourdain killed himself. I don't know why. Even if I did, it wouldn't matter, because it cannot be undone or make anyone feel any better. There was absolutely no one else in the world like him, and the constant refrain I heard from chefs, writers, and food lovers I met through my work as a journalist was, "I want to be Anthony Bourdain."

Anthony Bourdain, Renegade Chef Who Reported From the World’s Tables, Is Dead at 61 - The New York Times
Anthony Bourdain, whose darkly funny memoir about life in New York City restaurant kitchens made him a celebrity chef and touched off his second career as a journalist, food expert and social activist, was found dead on Friday in his hotel room in France. He was 61.
His death was being treated as a suicide. Christian de Rocquigny du Fayel, the prosecutor for the city of Colmar, in the Alsace region near where Mr. Bourdain was found, said the death was by hanging. “At this stage, we have no reason to suspect foul play,” he said.

Anthony Bourdain: America’s Ambassador to the World | Editorials | Consequence of Sound
A tribute to a man who followed fate and became America's favorite traveler
Some men get a haircut in high school and just stick with it until the day they lose it all. It’s a metaphor for how the male of the species lives his life post-college: stuck in his ways, unable to change with the times, wondering out loud when things will go back to what they perceive as “normal.” Anthony Bourdain was a man that the world saw change and grow throughout the years, from his first New Yorker piece to his recent alignment with the #MeToo movement. Bourdain always kept it real, but his reality was perpetually changing.

Goodbye Anthony Bourdain – Om on Tech
It has been six days since I got back from Iceland. And every single day has been spent in bed – dealing with conjunctivitis, cold, cough and fever. Despite all precautions, all sort of vitamins and even getting decent sleep. And yet, it has been a rough few days. Even though I have tried to keep up with work — thanks to Zoom video conference, I have fallen behind on my emails.
And if that was not enough, I have been devastated by the news of the suicide of Kate Spade, a designer who works were appreciated by millions of women around the world. But today, my world got a little darker. Anthony Bourdain, a chef and a food journalist I admired deeply committed suicide in France. His show Parts Unknown was the only show worth watching on CNN. I loved his previous travel shows as well.
