    Republican House members released its 'Commitment to America' video and it is filled with stock images of Russia and Ukraine.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, 57, released the video on Friday on behalf of House Republicans, claiming that the 'Democrats have led America off-track' through 'crippling inflation and rampant crime' as well as the 'border chaos.'  'What’s worse, they have ignored your priorities and shown contempt for your values. We will not allow it,' the video narrated. 'We celebrate the rich heritage of the American story and the vibrancy of the American Dream.'  But it seems American 'values' lie within Russia and Ukraine, as the new video displays several visuals showing mining equipment and happy children well outside the borders of the United States.

    A video accompanying House Republicans’ “Commitment to America” got a Slavic touch after stock footage from eastern European countries was included in its montage. Republicans aim to retake the lower chamber of Congress in November. As part of that effort, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took a page out of Newt Gingrich’s playbook and his 1994 “Contract with America” and unveiled the Republican agenda in the event the GOP prevails in the midterms. Much of the imagery from the video is Americana boilerplate, but for the fact a few clips originate from well beyond U.S. borders. According to HuffPost, a snippet of a little boy holding a toy airplane was actually shot in Russia’s Volgograd region by Russia-based filmmaker Serg Grbanoff. Ditto for this oil rig, which also appears in the Republicans’ video. Elsewhere in the montage, a shot from what appears to be a grocery store in Slovakia makes an appearance. As HuffPost noted, a small red tag on the left side of the image reads, “AKCIA,” which is a Slovak word for “action.” It...
    A Queensland man has revealed how he spotted a glistening $100,000 diamond nestled among a coral reef as he snorkelled off a cruise ship.  Bundaberg man Stuart said he was diving 10 years ago when he made the amazing find miles from civilisation out at sea. Honest Stuart offered to hand back the stunning jewel to anyone on board his cruise ship if they had lost it and could accurately describe it. But with no-one laying claim to it, he held onto it for himself - and has kept the glittering rock under lock and key ever since.  A Bundaberg man found a $100,000 diamond while snorkelling while on a cruise 10 years ago but has revealed how he would have given it away if he'd found its rightful owner (stock image) Stuart told Queensland's Triple M Rush Hour hosts Annabelle Brett and Elliot Lovejoy that the lucky find was glinting at him as he was snorkelling in a reef.  'I was diving down, snorkelling around the reef and it caught my eye and I dived a bit further down and...
    On August 3rd, 2021, during the pandemic-delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Tamyra Mensah-Stock became the first Black woman to win the gold medal in women’s freestyle wrestling.  Mensah-Stock's feat was historic, but it was her display of patriotism that made headlines.

The connected fitness company's Bike drove a key plot point in the reboot of "Sex and the City" on HBO Max, and the company's reaction to the news is raising questions among investors about its handling of its brand image. In addition, Peloton received a ratings downgrade Friday that stoked ongoing concerns about weakening demand for its products. Credit Suisse analyst Kaumil Gajrawala slashed the company's price target by more than half, from $112.00 to $50, as he changed the stock's rating from outperform to neutral. Shares of the company hit a 52-week low of $39.16 in trading Friday, and were recently down about 1%. On Thursday, when news of the Bike's role in "And Just Like That..." broke, shares closed down 11.35% at $40.70. Peloton's stock is down 73% for the year, giving it a...

    More On: photoshop Model with 480,000 followers exposes how ‘fake!’ Instagram is Internet baffled by photo of girl seemingly stuck in sidewalk Paris Hilton: Infamous ‘stop being poor’ T-shirt is fake Mom’s faked photo called out on TikTok by her daughter Hopefully, America’s spies are a little more stealthy. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) was roundly mocked on social media Thursday for using an image on the cover of its annual diversity report that was obviously Photoshopped. The report, subtitled “Hiring and Retention of Minorities, Women, and Persons with Disabilities in the United States Intelligence Community,” featured a photo of smiling, diverse office staffers standing in a lobby, flanked by a woman in a wheelchair and a blind man with a seeing-eye dog. The title of the image on stock photography company Shutterstock is: “Portrait Of Multi-Cultural Office Staff Standing In Lobby.” But one glaring problem — which was first pointed out by Republican political consultant and podcaster Luke Thompson — is that the woman in the wheelchair and the blind man don’t appear...
    The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has come under fire for photoshopping images of a woman in a wheelchair and a blind man with a guide dog onto a stock photo for the cover of its latest demographics report about diversity. The cover of ODNI's report, which was released on Thursday, features an image of well-dressed professionals and includes a description saying: 'Hiring and retention of minorities, women and persons with disabilities in the United States intelligence community'. ODNI, however, has since been accused of faking its diversity after it emerged the department had used a stock image for the cover and then edited it to include two people with disabilities.  The original image, which is available for download on stock image company Shutterstock, shows 15 people with a range of different ethnicities posing alongside each other.

    The Office of the Director of National Intelligence got called out Thursday after internet sleuths noticed some obvious photo editing on the cover of its latest demographic report. What started off as a stock image showing a group of well-dressed professionals ultimately ended with a lady in a wheelchair and a blind man with a dog shoehorned in – supposedly signaling the department's diversity for its 2020 fiscal year report.  The name of the primary stock photo: "Portrait Of Multi-Cultural Office Staff Standing In Lobby." On Shutterstock, a stock photography company, the portrait can be downloaded for free.  Twitter users promptly spotted the edits. They seemed particularly suspect about the unbelievable shadow added to the blind man with a dog.  INTERNET UP IN ARMS AFTER POLICE ACCUSE PEOPLE TAKING FREE BOOKS TO BE ‘THIEVES’ So, what did ODNI use for the man with the guide dog? Naturally, "Blind young man with guide dog on white background." The original can also be downloaded for free; the ODNI's cover changed his suit color from tan to dark grey. And if you want...
    Commentary on Pac-12 developments on and off the court (and field) … Rising: Pac-12 basketball schedules. The NCAA tournament is an ecosystem unto itself, largely detached from the events of the prior four months, which makes satisfactory explanations elusive. The latest example of the inexplicable is UCLA, the only Pac-12 team still standing. The Bruins lost four in a row to end the season, were the third-to-last team voted into the field, then found new life, beat the No. 1 and 2 seeds and became only the second team to roll from the First Four into the Final Four. Fortunately, it’s far easier to quantify the impact of March success: — The money piece is easy, as we detailed Wednesday: Pac-12 teams will receive millions of dollars over the next six years. — Postseason wins aid recruiting, albeit indirectly. Rare is the prospect who picks a school because it advanced to a certain round. But deep runs in the NCAAs generate momentum and raise awareness, which serve as magnets for coaches on the recruiting trail. — Success also helps with...
    J. Scott Applewhite-Pool/Getty Images Talk about throwing out political red meat. Congresswoman and gun rights activist  Lauren Boebert (R- CO) tweeted out an image of a steak on Tuesday, taunting Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to “come and take it,” in response to his call for widespread adoption of lab-created beef. But the rib steak image she so proudly tweeted out with the popular, Second Amendment catchphrase wasn’t actually from her kitchen, but was instead scraped from elsewhere on the Internet. In other words, Gates couldn’t molon labe, because that steak was already in absentia. Boebert’s surreal Twitter beef was apparently prompted by a recent interview the billionaire philanthropist gave to MIT Technology Review, in which he said: “I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef.” “Come and take it, Bill,” Boebert posted in response, with the attached stock photo of a bone-in rib steak. Come and take it, Bill. pic.twitter.com/9bjFrfVn3Q — Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) February 16, 2021 The carefully staged food photo seemed a bit too well done, and led some online sleuths to track down the so-to-speak raw image, which was ripped from the...

    When I was a child, we’d have dinner as a family every evening. If a telemarketer happened to phone the landline, my parents considered them extremely rude. How dare someone disturb our family time? Fast-forward 20 years and it’s all too common for meals to be punctuated by the constant ping of smartphone notifications — all ultimately designed to sell in the same way the tele- marketers did. I’ve spent the past three years working on The Social Dilemma, a film about what’s really going on in Silicon Valley and how social media is taking over our world. Larissa Rhodes, producer of The Social Dilemma, is warning people against over-suing social media and being glued to their smart phones (stock image) I’d previously worked on climate change-related projects for a decade, and I admit that, at first, I couldn’t see the rise of social media as an equal threat. But then we were given unprecedented access to a host of former employees at the world’s biggest tech companies, from Facebook to Twitter and Google. What they said terrified me....
    The Trump campaign committed yet another embarrassing stock image fail, running a patriotic-themed online ad over the 9/11 weekend that called for viewers to “Support Our Troops.” But rather than showcase images of the U.S. military, the ad included silhouettes of Russian MiG-29 fighter jets while one of unidentifiable soldiers in the ad also appears to be carrying a Russian-designed AK-74 military rifle. The flub was flagged by Politico, which caught the mistake in an article on Monday night. The ad campaign only ran fora few days and was funded by the Trump Make American Again Great Committee, a joint effort between the RNC and the Trump re-election team. Politico also tracked down the ad’s original image, which can be found here on the stock image library site, Shutterstock. It includes dozens of tags including “US,” “American,” “NATO,” as well as “Russian,” “Syria,” and “Afghanistan.” Neither the Trump campaign or RNC responded to a request for comment from Politico about the mistake. This wasn’t the first time the Trump campaign has used inaccurate or misleading stock images to promote its candidate. In July 2015,...
