The series is about motherhood, the sacrifices Black women make and the challenges of trying to be your full self while parenting another human being. The movie "Blindspotting" was a dynamic and necessary commentary on race, police brutality and manhood. While Estrada's film starts with a bang, the TV series takes a few episodes to find its footing. The constant tension (and screaming matches) between Ashley and Trish are especially jarring, since the origin of their disdain for one another is given short shrift. Yet, as aggravating as the ongoing feud between Ashley and Trish is to viewers, their frustrations with life feel very real.

REUTERS/Nathan FrandinoOne year after a statue of Francis Scott Key was toppled by racial injustice protesters in Golden Gate Park, an art exhibit opens next week with 350 slave sculptures gathered around the space once dedicated to the "The Star-Spangled Banner" creator - a slaveholder himself. To be unveiled on the June 19 holiday marking emancipation from slavery in America, the exhibit titled "Monumental Reckoning" is on the spot where Key's statue was dislodged on Juneteenth 2020. Her 350 steel "ancestors" are among public sculptures she has created from California to Connecticut to honor Black lives. The project has support from several Black leaders, including San Francisco Mayor London Breed, and sponsors include the Museum of the African Diaspora. King said "Monumental Reckoning" targets both "systems of oppression" and individuals who need to self-reflect on "what needs to be fixed on behalf of others," including bigoted views.

Google and Facebook accounted for 54% of U.S. digital advertising revenue in 2020, according to eMarketer, a market research company. Under the Facebook Journalism Project, for instance, Reuters received funding to develop a digital media training course for journalists. Both Facebook and Google have made contributions to the news industry apart from the $600 million. Both Facebook and Google say publishers benefit just from using their platforms, which deliver traffic that helps drive advertising revenue and subscriptions. The Seattle Times publisher said his paper has participated in programs backed by Google and Facebook.

Two Y Combinator entrepreneurs say they were kicked out for talking about issues within the accelerator. Two entrepreneurs claimed Friday the startup accelerator Y Combinator kicked them out of its program for speaking publicly about misogyny and members' efforts to circumvent COVID-19 vaccine eligibility requirements. "OK, I'll come out publicly: 2 weeks ago YC kicked me out as well because I dared to criticise their beloved founders," Damer said. Y Combinator did not respond to a request for comment on this story. Y Combinator has been vocal at times over the years about the need to increase diversity in its ranks, but it has struggled to make significant progress.

Obviously, that's going to be a massive challenge, because we're going to green up all the buildings and green all the cars and trucks. And so that's going to be a major, major, major challenge. CNBC: Last week, Senate Republicans introduced a $928 billion counteroffer on infrastructure to President Biden's now $1.7 trillion plan. Meanwhile, it's clean energy, and some of this social service infrastructure funding that the Republicans want to pull out.

(Reuters) - Payments startup Marqeta Inc is aiming for a valuation of more than $12 billion in its U.S. initial public offering (IPO), capitalizing on a boom in online shopping and food-delivery transactions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The company plans to sell about 45.4 million shares priced at between $20.00 and $24.00 apiece, according to a regulatory filing on Tuesday. It would raise over $1 billion at the top end of the range. The company, whose customers include Uber Technologies and food delivery company DoorDash Inc, doubled its valuation to $4.3 billion in May last year when it raised $150 million in funding. Marqeta had confidentially submitted paperwork for its listing in February, Reuters had reported earlier.

Can this U.S. city heal racial wounds by busting up its freeway?

Now, New York State wants to replace that elevated stretch of freeway with a street-level boulevard to knit the city's urban grid back together. The plan has stirred visions of renewal in a city where one in three residents lives in poverty. But some residents and public officials say it must provide more safeguards, such as community control over newly cleared land, to ensure that Black residents won't get displaced yet again. Nestled in rolling farmland about 200 miles (322 km) northwest of New York City, the city has lost one-third of its population since its mid-20th Century heyday, when its factories churned out televisions, air conditioners, even automobiles. On a rainy afternoon in April, Rufus and fellow NYCLU staffer Lanessa Owens-Chaplin walked alongside the elevated Interstate 81 freeway in Ward 15.

REUTERS/Vicki BehringerFederal Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers held unconventional closing arguments Monday in the antitrust trial between Epic Games and Apple Inc (AAPL.O), peppering both sides' attorneys for three hours about how far she could - and should - go to change Apple's App Store business. Last week the federal judge said that Apple's App Store profits from game makers looked "disproportionate", but on Monday she questioned Epic on whether there was a way to address its concerns without forcing Apple to open the iPhone to rival app stores, as Epic has proposed. She also noted the windfall that a change would mean for Epic, whose own efforts to start a competing paid app store were discussed during the trial. Gonzalez Rogers said that under Epic's proposed changes, it is likely the company would pay Apple nothing, a fact that "concerned" her throughout the trial. To make her decision, the judge will have to wade through 4,500 pages of testimony, a process she said could take months.

(Reuters) -Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook on Friday told a court that threats to iPhone security and privacy required tight control of the App Store, which “Fortnite” game maker Epic Games says is a monopoly that Apple illegally abuses. Slideshow ( 5 images )The testimony constitutes Cook’s most extensive public remarks on the App Store, which anchors Apple’s $53.8 billion services business, at a time when the company that once urged the world to ‘think different’ is criticized as too big and too powerful. See FACTBOX:Cook under questioning said he had higher concerns about the phone than Mac computers. Epic has argued that the Mac is very safe without Apple’s App Store review and that most of the privacy and security benefits come from the operating system, not App Store rules.

At the end of testimony, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers questioned Cook, pressing him to concede that game developers generate most App Store revenue and help subsidize other apps on the store that pay no commission. Gonzalez said the profits Apple reaps from game developers “appear to be disproportionate.”“I understand this notion that somehow Apple is bringing the customer to the dance,” she said. Cook said the document did not reflect the full costs of running the App Store. The testimony constitutes Cook’s most extensive public remarks on the App Store, which anchors Apple’s $53.8 billion services business. Gonzalez Rogers also cited a survey that found 39% of software developers were unhappy with Apple’s app distribution services.

U.S. House Judiciary Committee via REUTERS/File PhotoApple Inc (AAPL.O) Chief Executive Tim Cook on Friday will take the witness stand to defend the App Store, a booming part of the iPhone maker's business that "Fortnite" maker Epic Games says is a monopoly that Apple abuses. Cook is expected to spend more than two hours making what are likely to be his most extensive public remarks on the App Store business, which anchors Apple's $53.8 billion services business. Cook fielded a handful of questions about the company's App Store when he testified before U.S. lawmakers last year, but he otherwise stayed mostly silent as lawmakers grilled the chiefs of Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google and Facebook Inc (FB.O). Apple attorneys said they plan to ask him to testify about Apple's corporate values, how the App Store came about and Apple's competitive landscape. Throughout the trial, Apple has sought to persuade Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers that whatever rules it imposes on developers are aimed at keeping its customers' information private and safe from malware.

For every virus or piece of malware that Apple is able to stop or block, another several pop up. The Mac operating system, Federighi said, is less secure than iOS specifically because of its open nature.
