AFN - Alternative Food Network
"Alternative Food Network (“AFN”) is a specialty multi-media resource at the intersection of food and personal best health. AFN’s mission is to foster a ‘can do’ approach to eating for health and wellness, including those with food limitations and sensitivities.

Why “alternative”? Sometimes people must substitute ingredients and create alternative dishes because of dietary needs. Everyone is unique. There is no one diet that is right for everyone.
If you’re looking for a meal that’s low in carbohydrates, we have a section for that. If you’re looking for a gluten-free alternative, we’ve got recipes for you.
AFN is media with a mission; a socially conscious venture with a goal of alleviating the fear and stress associated with food restrictions and helping people live a healthy and energetic life."

From Ontario / Canada.

The New Social Network That Isn’t New at All - The New York Times 031919
Mike Isaac: My favorite new social network doesn’t incessantly spam me with notifications. When I post, I’m not bombarded with @mentions from bots and trolls. And after I use it, I don’t worry about ads following me around the web.That’s because my new social network is an email newsletter. Every week or so, I blast it out to a few thousand people who have signed up to read my musings. Some of them email back, occasionally leading to a thoughtful conversation. It’s still early in the experiment, but I think I love it.The newsletter is not a new phenomenon. But there is a growing interest among those who are disenchanted with social media in what the writer Craig Mod has called “the world’s oldest networked publishing platform.” For us, the inbox is becoming a more attractive medium than the news feed.The shift toward newsletters is part of a broader change. For years, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, asked us to live in a more “open and connected” version of the world. And billions of us did, posting status updates, photos and videos on the social network and flocking to other services like Twitter, where I post regular messages about my mood, personified in photos of my dog.

Google+ Gives Final Warning to Backup Data Before It's Deleted
Google has started sending out a new round of emails warning users that they need to backup their Google+ data before April 2, 2019 or it will be deleted.
In October 2018, Google announced that they were shutting down their consumer Google+ social platform in August 2019 due to lack of use and API bug that was discovered that leaked user information. After another bug was disclosed in December 2018, Google decided to move up the retirement date for the consumer platform to April 2019.
Today, Google has started emailing Google+ users who have data saved on the platform telling them to download their data before it becomes deleted as part of this closure.
"You’ve received this email because you have content in Google+ for your personal (consumer) account or a Google+ page you manage.
This is a reminder that on April 2, 2019 we’re shutting down consumer Google+ and will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted."
The email goes on to say that no other Google product such as Gmail, Google Photos, Google Drive, or YouTube will be affected.
Google+ Email
For those who wish to backup their Google+ data, you can follow these steps:
Go to the Google+ Data Download page.
Select all the data categories you wish to save. I suggest you put a checkmark in all of them.
Click on Next Step.
At the next page, specify how you would like to retrieve your archive, whether that be through an emailed link or saved to Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Box. You can also configure the type of archive it is and how large each file should be.
When done, click on the Create Archive button and Google will begin to prepare the archive for you. If you do not have a lot of data, it should be done very quickly while you wait.
When done, you will be presented with an archive that contains all of your textual content saved in HTML files and your photos saved as individual images.
Archived Data
The email further states that you should download your data before March 31st, 2019 as it could take some time to prepare your data and make it available.

Opinion | Teen Fiction and the Perils of Cancel Culture - The New York Times
Jennifer Senior: "What happened to Jackson is frightening. Purity tests are the tools of fanatics, and the quest for purity ultimately becomes indistinguishable from the quest for power. In the Twitterverse, ideologues have far more power than moderates. They have more followers; their tweets get more traction (studies have shown that emotional tweets pretty much always have more traction); they set the terms of their neighborhood’s culture and tone. But this does not mean they have better judgment."

Russell Westbrook not to blame for fan altercation
Russell Westbrook is a lightning rod for many things. You know the list. His game. His fashion. His defiance. His media interactions. His fan interactions.
But being a lightning rod doesn’t make you automatically guilty of whatever the charge, and that’s the case when Westbrook had an altercation with Utah Jazz fans Monday night.
The Thunder beat Utah 98-89, but before the game was even over, a video circulated of Westbrook, on the Thunder bench, yelling at a couple and using an expletive.
It’s not the first time. Westbrook and opposing fans have a long and turbulent. But that’s because of Westbrook’s defiance. He does not suffer fools gladly, which could be why he thinks he doesn’t like me.
