Warum die Thighbrows auf Instagram auf die Thigh Gap folgen - Style - bento
Bye, Thigh Gap. [Hi] Thighbrows. [ superficial world that Social Media created. ] Es handelt sich dabei um das Haut- und Fettröllchen, das an der Falte zwischen Bein und Po – also an der Hüfte – entsteht, wenn man kniet, sitzt oder sich nach vorne beugt. Moment. Hat das nicht jeder? [...] Doch, nur ist die individuell mal mehr, mal weniger ausgeprägte Thighbrow in den meisten Fällen mit Kleidung verdeckt. Neu ist, dass hochausgeschnittene und eng anliegende Badeanzüge seit 2015 wieder getragen werden, und man die vergessene Körperstelle deshalb bald häufiger sehen wird. [... "hip cleavage" ...] [...] Durch die fotografisch festgehaltene Wiederholung avancieren gewisse Posen (Russenhocke, Fish Gape, Duck Face) zum nonverbalen Code, der ein gewisses Trendbewusstsein suggeriert, ohne explizit darauf hinzuweisen. Fotos spiegeln die Normen der Gesellschaft wider, brechen sie, spielen mit ihnen.

The trap of materialism - YouTube
Consumerism! The more we consume, the better our lifes will be. ... Keeping up with the jonses. [...] the true cost of an item is not the price. as long as carbon, pollution is not priced in. thus the carbon tax and pollution tax (ecological and environmental). [...] WALL E is true. leaving a planet full of junk. and pollution, inhospitable environment. [...] post-capitalism = post-consumerism in age of abundance and marginal cost (energy, water, food). [...] a man's life does not lie in the abundance of his possessions. and be fearful of greed << Bible [...] consumerism does not equal to tue individuality or individualism of a human being among many. its a choice you can pick from and define yourself in public with it ie which color your iPhone has or what case for it [ min 8 Adam Smith; let flourish self-interested selfish economic interest through consumption = growth ] [...] shopping as experience. shopping as a way of life. self-medication. coping mechanism in the rat race.

Banner “Fraud” Doesn’t Matter | Hacker News "A Message from brand marketers to publishers [...] We use banners as little billboards now. We use them strategically as incredibly cheap repeat impressions for brand awareness. We know many people don’t see them, we know most people don’t see them. Thats okay. We use them accordingly & the cost has been adjusted down to make them a perfectly great buy even though most people dont see them. [...] It’s an indicator to us that you don’t get this by the fact you’re still always talking about clickthrough, which was kind of BS when you first sold it to us twenty years ago, and doubly the case now." [ CPM will go lower, fundamentals point in that direction, Social Media & other future forms of advertising will fill in the lower CPM rates overall. Thus pressuring business models reliant on pageviews even more 2 increase pageviews as the revenue average per pageview declines. Thus u have 2 question which consumer product (entertainment & else) business model do you choose!?

Calm down, tech journalists: It’s okay if you don’t use Snapchat | PandoDaily
artificial limitations is the trend that emerged late out of the freeze box that was SV 2001-2005/6 ... artificial limitations ie 140 charachters, ephemeral content, <10s videos, Yo, (photo)filters, ... and anonymity within the echo chamber made Secret --- and the real world broke the idea. Hot deals emerge quickly within an echo chamber, even if it doesn't end world hunger or make it rain. // This is a new phase of SV companies and tech, question is, can anyone of these be sustainable long-term world wide as big and far as they are shouting (out of the echochamber) // as fascinated as the press at large is right now, there could be, looming on the horizon, a backlash from the general population, as their livelihoods are deeply affected (work, social, democracy, ... uncertainty. people don't like uncertainty and insecurity.)

BBC News - Sigmund Freud: The phrases you use without realising it
Oedipus complex. Denial. Id, ego and super-ego. Libido. Death wishes. Anal retentiveness. Defence mechanisms. Displacement. Phallic symbols. Projection. Transference. And, of course, Freudian slips. It's not just Freud's terminology that is all over the popular lexicon. He's an adjective in his own right. [...] "I think that most of us have only a vague - perhaps defensively vague - sense of what Freud is really saying, not least because in the field of popular culture his work has often been mediated to us in ways that water it down, make it palatable, reduce its insight, its complexity - and, I suppose, its difficulty - and turn it into a cosy and reassuring fantasy," says Dr Nicholas Ray, who lectures in Freudian thought at Leeds University.

Memo to my daughter: “Keep your eye on the ball and hit hard” | PandoDaily
What I love about Abramson’s [...] she’s named it, she’s owned it, but she doesn’t make herself a victim. She knows she lives in a sexist world and that makes her victories– and even her defeats– that much sweeter. This is how we should talk about women in the world. Not stupid debates about having it all. Taking the world as it exists, naming it, shrugging, and continuing to fight. // +++ // "entrenched short-sightedness and sexist cruelty of male-controlled media [...] Yay, thanks for some crumbs of enlightened thinking, for some slightly nuanced improvements in the daily, punishing business of publicly evaluating and then reevaluating women’s worth. [...] 'I don’t fucking care if you like it.' [...] Social Media [frictionless, not thinking twice or setting something aside for a day]. [Women's] life['s and worth's] are up for public evaluation. [To this day.]" +++

Binge Media Culture Finds a Receptive Audience in Americans -
“With the things that get us to really crave the news, the tenor of the story tends to have a negative impact on the way we see the world more generally,” he said, referring to the controversial and scandalous subjects that draw in chronic readers and viewers. “We become more cynical.” Does he regard his own bingeing on these topics as escapist? + + “Absolutely,” he said. “You forget about your life for 30 minutes while you read about Chris Christie’s implosion.” Joshua Ferris’s forthcoming novel, “To Rise Again at a Decent Hour,” is about “the obsessive-compulsive nature of your own personality emerging through these platforms, and disliking the person who is taking advantage of them,” he said. Mr. Ferris, 39, confessed to bingeing on news, TV and YouTube videos, though he recently took a six-month purgative sabbatical.

Why I’m Bullish on the News - POLITICO Magazine
Go maximum mass or maximum specific. [...] News organizations are also going to have to mix and match revenue models. I see eight obvious ones: advertising, subscriptions, premium content, events, cross-media promotion, crowdfunding, micropayments and philanthropy. [...] Today, this same science culture, this civilization of engineers and math, is again on the rise. And to many, it feels like it’s running away with the future. [...] The point is that, for people who aren’t deep into math and science and technology, it is going to get far harder to understand the world going forward. || + + +

Jimmy Fallon Exits Stage (Just) Right : Monkey See : NPR
Because Jimmy Fallon lives on joy, and joy is not solitary. It's why he's not at his strongest in plain monologue delivery, and it's why every single good bit he has is fundamentally a collaboration. Even something like "Thank You Notes," which seems to be just him reading cards, has morphed into a silly little dance he does with the keyboard player. [...] As I've said a bunch of times, the precise quality that could make Fallon irritating on Saturday Night Live — the inability not to laugh during sketches — was a glimpse at why his late-night show has been so utterly delightful. He gets so jazzed about things, and he's so energized by the presence of other humans, that he has the poker face of a five-year-old. He laughs, and somebody else laughs, and then everybody laughs more. It's not everybody's thing, but boy, it's been mine. [ ... hitting a Common Denominator - liking being around fun people ... to be around with. "Great Friend and Guest to invite to a party."] + v=3T2FpCDlyNg

Katy Perry ‘Prism’ Good Example How Albums Don’t Work Anymore | Variety
We’ve turned into a nation of grazers. And the artist’s job is to constantly be at the smorgasbord. Not to deliver one big meal that is picked at and thrown away, but to constantly provide tantalizing bites to the public. [...] no one’s got time for mediocre anymore. [...] Labels are no longer in the record business, they’re in the star business. How to maximize the revenue of an individual or band in as many media as possible, in as many ways as possible. Yes, while you were bitching about piracy, your whole business model disappeared.

Lady Gaga und Pop in Schwierigkeiten: "Artpop" enttäuscht - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Labels sind nicht mehr im Plattengeschäft, sie sind im Star-Geschäft" [...] Der Pop der vergangenen gut 15 Jahre wurde von weiblichen Stars beherrscht. Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé Knowles, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus - und Lady Gaga. Es war Musik, die von weiblicher Identitätsfindung in einer Welt erzählte, in der die Gleichberechtigung zwar noch nicht endgültig erkämpft, aber doch in greifbarer Nähe ist. Das spiegelte sich im Aufstieg und Fall und scheinbaren Wiederaufstieg von Britney Spears genauso wie in der Königinnen-Werdung von Beyoncé. Es war Pop, der von Hitsingles getragen wurde, die die dazugehörigen Alben in die Charts trugen. [...] Popstars müssen heute rund um die Uhr, überall auf der Welt wirken. Und dabei die Kunst beherrschen, omnipräsent zu sein, ohne auf die Nerven zu gehen. [...] Sie ist der klügste Popstar ihrer Generation.
