    In this article FBFacebook CEO Mark ZuckerbergChesnot | Getty Images News | Getty ImagesAs Mark Zuckerberg pursues a future in the metaverse, he has to count on his existing business — Facebook — to provide the capital to get him there. A week after announcing its new corporate name, Meta, and unveiling a decadelong strategy, the company said Thursday that it's adding a number of features to Facebook designed to make the platform more attractive to users and fend off competition from other social media services like TikTok, Snapchat and YouTube. In particular, Facebook is trying to lure creators to develop high-quality content by giving them new ways to make money.

"We really want to be the best place for creators to have a sustainable business and offering because we know that the content that they create for people on Facebook is really valuable," Tom Allison, head of the Facebook app,...

Brown has had an impressive start to his NFL career with 2,126 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns over his first two seasons. In Year 3, Brown is looking to be an even more effective player. He hasn’t been able to do much on the field to polish his game this offseason as surgical clean-up procedures on both knees have kept him doing rehab work. Brown said he’s not getting “impatient” about that state of affairs and has tried to use the time to make him a more complete player. “It’s been a real slow grind for me,” Brown said, via the team’s website. “I’ve done a lot of lifting weights, cardio, film (work), just watching and trying to learn as much as possible. Not kill time, but make the most of it to be honest with...
    Facebook CEO Mark ZuckerbergChesnot | Getty Images News | Getty Images Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday announced a slew of features Instagram is working on to help creators generate more revenue from their content. This includes a marketplace that would help match brands with creators whose content fits the audiences that they are trying to reach. Already, many social media creators get paid to post sponsored content, but the goal of this marketplace would be for Instagram to play a more involved role in helping brands discover emerging creators, said Adam Mosseri, the head of the Facebook-owned image- and video-sharing service. "We should be able to help brands find creators that are uniquely aligned with the work they're trying to do and vice versa," Mosseri said on an Instagram Live broadcast with Zuckerberg. These features come as Facebook adjusts to a recent change in Apple's iOS ecosystem that will likely make it more difficult for the social media company to target ads to iPhone and iPad users. By keeping more commerce and sales directly on its apps, Facebook can...
    New York Yankees make progress in series victory over Cleveland, but still have a long ways to go Nathan Solomon April 26, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditAfter three weeks of absolute dismal play to open the season, the New York Yankees finally started to click this weekend in Cleveland, taking three out of four games with the Indians. The team certainly didn’t play like what their full potential is, but after the start they got off to, this weekend was major progress. Most importantly, the Yankees began to swing the bats a lot better. The team hit nine home runs over four games, including two each from Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Hicks, and Rougned Odor. Kyle Higashioka added a home run on Thursday, while Gio Urshela and Mike Ford went back-to-back in Sunday’s matinee loss. In this age of baseball, you aren’t going to win MLB games without hitting home runs, and that was the offensive catalyst missing in the first 17 games of the season. In addition to more home runs hit, we started...
    New York Giants make big leap but have ways to go in pre-draft roster rankings Cay North April 25, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditJust how good is the New York Giants roster right now going into the NFL Draft? According to Pro Football Focus, the team has moved up to around the middle of the league. That might not sound like the most attractive spot if you ask the fans, but it’s a big improvement from where the Giants used to be. Headed into last season, after all, the team didn’t have too many expectations and few were surprised when the Giants quickly ended up low in the standings. However, the team is getting a bit more recognition this offseason. And that’s before any pieces are even added in the draft. In their rankings of all the rosters in the league, PFF chose to place the Giants around the middle at number 17. Placing 17th may seem average, but for the New York Giants, this is big news. Their roster was among the worst...

    As coronavirus cases surge nationwide, scientists and local leaders are urging families to forgo holiday traditions that include large indoor gatherings. But experts say there are ways to start new traditions during this unprecedented year, as well as ways to cope with what may be a lonelier holiday season.  Dr. Amanda Fialk, a licensed clinical social worker in New York, told CBS News she encourages people to acknowledge the feelings and emotions they're experiencing about missing out on the typical holiday season.  "There are people, events, and experiences you will miss," said Fialk, chief of clinical services at The Dorm, a treatment community for young adults. "When you acknowledge and validate your feelings, they become less overwhelming and you are less likely to become blindsided by your emotions." Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox Fialk also recommended people make a plan for how they'll spend the holidays. "Whatever the plan is, make that plan in advance," she said. "Knowing that this holiday is going to look different and you may be celebrating alone makes it imperative that you...
    Activists like the Dream Defenders did not expect Harold Pryor to win the Broward County (Fort Lauderdale), Florida State Attorney race, nor was he their pick. But win he did in the August 17 Democratic primary, leaving him a nailed-on favorite to take the job. While Pryor is very different to outgoing State Attorney Mike Satz in several important ways—he is Black, for one, and less than half Satz’s age, at just 33—he is similar in others, having worked as a low-ranking prosecutor in Satz’s administration. Pryor’s 2020 campaign platform was uninspiring to criminal justice reformers,in part because people who have made similar promises in the past have proven themselves failures. He promised a Conviction Integrity Unit to vet potential wrongful convictions, to “eliminate adjudications for Misdemeanor Traffic Offenses and other offenses that are remnants of poverty,” and support “problem solving” diversion courts for cases that involve addiction and mental health issues. CIUs in practice are often political “window dressing” for the typecast win-at-all-costs US prosecutors’ office, and diversion programs like drug courts create as many problems as they purportedly solve, while doing indirect public relations...
    On Tuesday night, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro—whom Donald Trump affectionately calls “my Peter”—decided to dump gasoline on a simmering fire when he sent USA Today a statement that it published as an op-ed in which he slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci for standing in the way of “the president’s courageous decision” making on the COVID-19 pandemic. Having just downplayed the significance of anti-Fauci talking points that they themselves had sent to media outlets, members of the White House press office were left, once again, to repair the residual damage, insisting that the USA Today opinion piece didn’t go through the “normal White House clearance processes.” But the fact that Navarro didn’t get official clearance for his statement was largely an irrelevant point. After all, he didn’t need it. According to three individuals familiar with the matter, in the past few months Trump has privately encouraged multiple senior officials and allies, including Navarro, to remind journalists and the American public of how Fauci has been “so wrong”—in the president’s phrasing—in some of his predictions about the coronavirus pandemic.  Navarro hadn’t...
