Nars is taking risqué marketing to the next level.
The 25-year-old beauty company, best known for its Orgasm blush — among other shade names that are sexual innuendos — has social media abuzz over its newest campaign.
Nars posted the raunchy video — which shows a nude lipstick melting into the phallic shape — to its Instagram account with the caption: “When the nudes keep you up all night.” Social media was quick to react, with many expressing their shock at the campaign. Model Chrissy Teigen, for one, poked fun at the campaign on her Twitter account.
honestly in love with this color and now I must have it to soften my boner

The social media backlash has been swift toward real estate developer Stephen Ross.
The developer behind Hudson Yards, Ross is facing criticism from celebrities and fashion designers over news that he is reportedly hosting a fundraiser for President Donald Trump at his Hamptons home on Friday. According to The Washington Post, tickets for the fundraiser range from $ 100,000 to $ 250,000.
Ross is also the chairman of real estate company, Related Cos., which owns SoulCycle and its parent company, Equinox, and is the owner of the Miami Dolphins. Many celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen, Sophia Bush and Billy Eichner, have taken to Twitter to express their outrage over Ross’ fundraiser, taking aim at his many companies.

The “Cats” trailer is finally here, and the Internet isn’t too happy about it.
When it was announced that the beloved musical would be given the live-action treatment, musical theater lovers rejoiced. But many have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment — and downright terror — toward the film’s first trailer.
The trailer features a number of A-list actors and musicians, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Idris Elba and Dame Judi Dench, among others, who appear as felines with human-like faces and bodies. The film’s director, Tom Hooper — best known for directing films like “Les Misérables” and “The King’s Speech” — has called the technique “digital fur technology.”
Many commenters are poking fun at said technology, comparing the actors to other iterations of this anthropomorphism in film, including in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” where Emma Watson’s character, Hermione Granger, accidentally transforms into a cat, and Mike Myers’ take on “The Cat in the Hat.” Others have taken liberty with the trailer by adding in their own edits, like one user who cut in the song from Jordan Peele’s horror film, “Us,” over the “Cats” trailer.

Charles Bradley and his success in the music business at an age where most wouldn’t expect to find fame is an amazing tale of dedication and redemption. The talented soul singer died last Saturday after a long bout with cancer, sparking a flood of responses from musicians who admired him across social media.
Music stars such as Questlove, Neko Case, and El-P paid tribute to the singer on social media following the news of his passing.
“Respect to Brother Charles. So Much Soul,” Roots drummer Questlove captioned a black-and-white photo of Bradley on Instagram.
The outlet adds that Bradley’s stomach cancer had been contained but that it spread to his liver, forcing him to cancel dozens of shows earlier in the month. Bradley fell ill in 2016 but valiantly continued his robust performance schedule as best he could. He released three albums under the Daptones label, including 2016’s Changes.
According to the singer’s publicist, Bradley was surrounded by friends, family and band members in his final moments.

When you are an author, and you dare to write on topics outside your main field, folks who disagree with you swarm to Amazon.com to give your latest book a bad review that sounds real.
As a hypnotist, I look for three tells (that could be false-positives):
1. Review starts with “I am usually a big fan of this person but…”
2. Criticism is in the form of “War and Peace doesn’t have anything about Russia in it.” (Meaning the reader did not read the book but might have skimmed a page or two.)
3. A 2 or 3-star review, to make the ploy seem less obvious than a 1-star review.
I do not allege that these two newest reviews are fake. But these are the types you would look for right about now, with all three tells, as I start angering people with my Trump writing. But as I say, these could be false-positives. They just happen to fit the form perfectly.
I will ask those of you who read my book to confirm in the comments that these reviewers appear to have not read it. (The real readers understood the book to be about systems versus goals, not advice. The book clearly says it is not advice.)
Am I wrong?
Update: The tell on the second review is the two words “old hat.” That person either skimmed the book or did not read it. I think the folks who did read the book can confirm in the comments that the VERY POINT of the book is that it is contrarian advice. A real criticism might have looked like this: “His new ideas do not appeal to me.”
And any reference to “already been done” without a link or a book title where it has already been done is another eyebrow-raiser.

There are many single people over 40 as a result of different circumstances. A few were far too busy earlier in life to date and hence end up being single at this age. Some are single as a result of divorce, separation or death of spouses. Whatever your reason of being single over 40, you still have a chance to find love and be happy. This is thanks to social dating networks that are designed specifically for those who are over 40. Relationships:Dating Articles from EzineArticles.com

Today I have a few questions for you: Are you in a relationship? When you are cozy on the sofa, watching your favorite TV show, where is your partner’s cellphone? Is it next to yours on the coffee table? Or does he keep it in his pocket, locked with a passcode and while it rings and beeps, throughout the evening and he checks it only when you get up to refresh the popcorn? Why does it matter? Continue reading and you’ll find out.
Social media is evolving at an alarming speed, with smartphones replacing simple cell phones, offering a whole new world of fast, direct and discreet communication options. Serving as multimedia datacenters, smartphones manage every kind of relationship. Social media applications lower inhibitions and barriers, making it simpler than ever to find contact nearly anyone. Why make a phone call when you can send private message with a picture or video to better engage the recipient?
Countless apps exist to exchange provocative pictures and messages, so that it is easier than ever to maintain multiple ‘virtual’ and real life relationships in secret. Emotional and physical affairs are now delivered on demand thanks to social media and technology. When talking with my clients the cellphone is often an important subject. Fascinated by the subject, I started to do a bit of research.
Facebook & Social Media The website Facebookcheating.com is devoted to helping those struggling in their marriage due to an unfaithful partner’s use of Facebook. The site claims that Facebook is to blame for 1 in 3 divorces. But is this really accurate? According to a Boston University study Facebook is ‘a significant predictor of divorce rate and spousal troubles, in the United States’. “People who use social media are 32% more likely to leave their spouse”. The researchers added: “We believe being aware of this situation will empower Facebook users to better understand the implications of their activities and then allow them to make much more informed decisions.”
The Twitter effect & WhatsApp
Others are talking about the Twitter effect. A doctoral student at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, found that active Twitter users are far more likely to experience Twitter-related conflicts with their romantic partners. The research shows that these conflicts can lead to emotional and physical cheating, and even end in breakup and divorce. Outside the United States Gian Ettore Gassani president of the Italian Association of Matrimonial Lawyers, told the Times of London that ‘forty per cent of adulterous divorce cases in Italy cite WhatsApp messages as evidence of unfaithfulness. Mr Gassani added: “Social media has boosted betrayal in Italy by making it easier, first through texting, then Facebook, and now WhatsApp.”
Based on the research above and my own experience with thousands of distressed couples, I agree that social networking is linked to marital happiness cheating and divorce. Social media makes it much easier to have emotional and physical affairs. On the other hand times are changing and we live in a digital era where everything is accelerating continuously. Social media is increasingly a part of our daily lives and cutting off all use is not a realistic solution.
So how do we figure out what is a normal use of social media and what could spell danger for relationships?
If your partner consistently makes his cellphone invisible to you, locks his phone with a passcode or never uses it in your presence, he may have something to hide. The distractions and temptations presented by the digital world force us to work harder for healthy relationships. That is why it’s essential to insist on openness and clear communication, instead of succumbing to the fantasy on your smartphone.
There is hope. We know that a leading cause of a relationship break down is the lack of communication between spouses. As a result, many are distracted by social media in search of a third person to meet their emotional and mental needs, which ultimately leads to cheating. Mutual communication and listening are the essence of any good relationship; without them separation and divorce are inevitable.
Do we all become a victim of the ‘social media monster’?
Do not allow your relationship to become a victim of ‘the social media monster’. My advice is to invest time in your relationship. Communicate and share what’s on your mind, and even more importantly listen to your partner. The future of your relationship depends on it.
Email, tweets, likes, photos and comments can wait, especially since they are no substitution for actual human contact. And if you are just too easily distracted, there is always another option: put your phone on silent. Divorce – The Huffington Post

ABC premiered #RisingStar Sunday night and generated more than 1 million app downloads, and there is more to this innovation than television finally moving beyond the simple hashtag for live programs.
Users connected either a Facebook or Twitter account to activate the application during the two-hour music talent show hosted by Josh Groban. The gimmick is that by being a voting “judge” users might see a profile photo on a huge video wall that rises, if a performer gets 70 percent of the vote to move to the next round.
The #RaiseTheWall hashtag generated some of the usual activity on Twitter, but it was the Rising Star app that is worth further attention. While the 2-ton wall was mostly difficult to see, the show was collecting massive amounts of user data.
Once connected, the app followed along as three voting “experts” — Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Kesha, and Brad Paisley — were introduced. Groban established the live nature of the show with World Cup talk and some edgy banter with the stars.
Each time a performer was introduced, app users were required to check in to be eligible to vote. Thus, ABC can show advertisers how many engaged viewers stayed with the show and how quickly they re-connected after each commercial break. These viewer behavior data are far ahead of traditional audience sample household data.
Rising Star also pushed messages during the commercial breaks, such as meeting a couple of “fellow judges” and humor about taking the app to the bathroom.
There are some issues with the technology. The app takes the entire screen of a smartphone or tablet, which means users might need two devices to continue to follow other social media during the show or bail out.
Online criticism of the show included questionable talent, slow program pace (with a second West Coast broadcast) and audience vote priming through expert panel antics. Yet, in the end, the live show broke some new social media ground. The final performer of the evening, selected from an earlier Instagram audition, nailed the live performance. The studio audience went wild, and Rising Star had the expected happy ending.
TV must use mobile app technology in this way for a variety of programming — from presidential debates to sports and awards show — for it to find a happy ending in the fragmented social media world that searches for audience attention. Entertainment – The Huffington Post
