Paris Fashion Week will go ahead this September
"And, finally, on today's program off to Paris to get a roundup of a busy few days in the fashion calendar, I'm joined on the line by Dana Thomas Journalist and author of fashion apples the price of fast fashion the future of clothes always good at talking to maybe just bring us up speed quickly on what has what the show is look like I was in Paris a few weeks ago there was much discussion. Where we're going to be world video presentations again, and many brands saying very committed to actually getting models, and of course, journalists and buyers in seats again and having them walk down a catwalk. What happened. Well some of that's happening. There are shows and people are attending. In fact, there's an official French calendar and on the French calendar, it should it tells who is going to be showing like Gabriella Hurston who is going to be digital chanel showing some people are doing digital. Some people are doing both. The same in Milan summer having shows and some are digital and. I don't know who's attending. I saw that Brian boy the the influence Sir is back in Milan and he's thrilled to be back in. Milan. I saw that on his instagram or his twitter feed but I mean, I know that for example, I contribute to the New York Times magazine is a New York Times as a freelancer, and that team is not coming to Paris spending Friedman's reviewing everything from her home in New York. So you know I know that. Americans aren't really aren't allowed to come to Europe anyway. So there's the whole Chinese can't people can't come to. Europe. A lot of people can't travel. So I, think it's mostly people who are in town who are going I was asked to go to some shows in Paris I have no interest going to watch them on digital. Why do you have no interest I'm curious because you're part of this. You know we're all in this together we that we we have to go out and support and a lot of people say the same thing with sporting events as well. Of course, if the if the guidelines are followed, etc you know. These things tend to drift away and become part of the sideline or do you think that the future is digital? We don't need to go to shows anymore even go into shops. I think that know they're pushing it too soon too fast. I. Think you know we don't need to go into shops and or we don't need to go to fashion shows right now. In fact to me, they feel frivolous and not taking what's going on terribly seriously Yes. We need to boast our our morale a bit by sitting next to people who could have the bro The bug and sitting there with a mask on and you can catch union, catch it through your eyes. You know I don't feel like taking that risk I'd rather be safe and I think that's the most important thing right now.
Facebook oversight board to start operating in October
"Well, Facebook's long awaited oversight board that will act as a referee on whether specific contents allowed on the platform is set to launch in October. CEO Mark Zuckerberg announcing two years ago, he was setting up the quasi independent board. Following criticism.

Facebook plays whack-a-mole with foreign election interference
"Facebook said this week it's taken down several networks of fake accounts over concerns about meddling in the US election the latest crop tied to Russian intelligence services. The company says the accounts on facebook and instagram could have been used to leak hack documents. It also removed several authentic Chinese accounts that in some cases shared material related to president trump and his opponent former vice president Joe, Biden facebook didn't say whether those accounts were directly tied to the Chinese government which has denied any influence campaigns. Sarah Frier is a reporter for Bloomberg who's been following developments. This is just indicative of. How facebook is going to continue to be playing, whack a mole with these kinds of operations there they're going to have to keep looking for them, finding them, stopping them, and when I say these operations, I need what facebook considers to be coordinated inauthentic behavior. Specifically, the kind of influenced campaigns where entities from another country are trying to pretend to be US citizens to stir controversy. When in fact, they are not researchers who looked into these fake Chinese accounts found that some of them were created using a I generated faces. So not real faces. How concerned should we be about that? I think that that makes it harder to you to determine whether somebody is not a real person like often you can. You can look in an account and do a reverse image search and find that the person who's accounted as is actually someone else or stealing someone's picture. But now you can generate faces with AI, which is a little scarier generate new identities in. It's hard to tell the difference between that and a a real person. Do you have a sense of how influential foreign interference might be in the selection, which is already underway? I think the bigger issue may be domestic efforts to influence the election. I think that a lot of people have learned from the events of the past few years, just how how incredibly powerful it can be to stoke fear conspiracy and strong feelings. But that's what spreads on facebook is if you can get a reaction out of something if you can people to care and. Share and make something go. That is that's what works, and so I think that outside of the issue of fake accounts in fake identities there's this larger issue of of. The kind of viral misinformation that has spread and facebook has a much
Sustainability with Queer Brown Vegan
"I, say us. It's so lovely to meet you. I'm so glad to be talking to you today. Thank you so much again for having me glad Chris. I'm over the moon as you know because we we're we're super fans like the. Stock you on Instagram we found profile didn't we and I think I just loved title Queer Brown Vegan I thought it was. NEAT and I love the way you present your ideas like it's really colorful and beautifully made I. Think it's a really good thing you're doing that you're. Talking about. Urgent subject but making it kind of. Fascinating and interesting and alive for people not to skating because that's one of the things we've. Talked about like, how do you? Do what you're doing, which is well, what do you? What what would you say? You do tell us what you how you define yourself. I would describe yourself as a queer environmental educated that provides accessible environmental education on content for anyone interested in learning about environmentalism is as you live zero waste. What does that? What does that mean? Zero ways you know for a lot of has a broad term of. The Way to define it but zero waste and lowest to me it looks into higher able to create redesign the way that you view plastic and so understanding it from an individual impact, but also a global impact. So understanding that reducing your waste in different ways but also acknowledging the fact that the plastic crisis is a global environmental justice that is disproportionately harming black indigenous people clerked me globally and now we have countries that. That heavily exploited by colonialism are dealing with the amounts of waste that is usually delivered from countries like the UK and United States with waste where do you know what are you? What are you talking to us from? Los Angeles. Oh I thought you are and I thought you were in Queens New York, is that I recently moved back home grown up but I'll be back in New York and twenty one. Okay. So you're. So you're I in La boy and tell us your story because your upbringing really affected how you have come to this. Place as the career, Brian Vegan doesn't it growing up? My parents had immigrated an one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty s onto la from Mexico and so we grew up low income living in a way with affordable housing programs or programs that are sponsored by the government and so many of these. In, Los Angeles are known to live in communities are already low income but that are nearby toxic facilities or places that generate noise pollution in some sense in. So my aspects of environmentalism grew at a young age because of like based off survival. So it wasn't necessarily because I thought about being was about others what we have. So have to reuse it and use what I have to, and as I got older I. Started learning about environmentalism making these connections within myself saying like wise the air quality in my neighborhood this way why? What is climate change? How does that interconnect to me and so the older are realizing my own identity great being clear and then I realized the people who usually talk to me or that represented in the environmental spheres We're usually straight white men and so I ask myself like Oh. Is this this is Interesting because I don't see anyone who looks like or comes from a community, and so the ones university I realized the fact that many of the classes were dominated by, of course, white students and not to say that it was bad. But it was to say that there was a lack of diversity representation within those movements in you know having the lack of support having to deal with certain spaces in the environmental field dealing. With Homophobia in like thirty remarks being told to me I realized that that wasn't necessarily space I needed to be an and so leaving after college that's something I want to cultivate it because had I known that there was a educator growing up or had had a mentor like that it would have changed my outlook in environmentalism but instead I had to go through all those hurdles and challenges to unlearn that things that I was taught. To really get to where I'm at today. So you felt that you were being given environmentalism from a very straight white mine ankle and you're like a whole other spectrum out here is. It's interesting that. As. Well, isn't it like do how poverty and like like I remember like growing up like I went to a very smart school wherever and money, and so if you brought in your lunch in a plastic pot, for example, it was kind of considered like you poor. So, there's so much attachment to. What did they do? What did they push wants? Did they went to the school lunches or? Like, yeah, it was just buy something or you know you just go out and buy something whereas like. and. So there's a lot of like use. The is about image know like if I can afford to buy this thing that I can throw away. Of. People. See people striving for that. Almost it's funny. Do you do you think that is I think the idea of consumerism is so ingrained in all of us you know whether would be in our television show our media art magazine anything read it's all about Centrum consumers at a young age even to I remember kids like shaming. We're having thirsted close or even does the fact of like reusing resource that is now seen today as like environmentally-friendly now, which is great to see that shift but back then I, think it's because we ingrained in our own children in our own parents consumerism is a good thing. Yeah well, especially in the say, that's like the kind of the currency celebrity and. Consumers Arctic the to. What degree

"Of course running so high across the country today after no officers were charged directly related to the killing of Brianna Taylor took testers hit the streets after the news broke the grand jury indicted a former police officer on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing into neighboring apartments and the other officers were charged and Louisville, Kentucky where Brianna was shot the protests took a violent turn to police officers were shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. A lot to unpack here. How do you feel about all of this? Both of you? The saddest part about all of it is that I am not shocked that this happened. I'm in shock that I'm not shocked and whenever you look at the footage from the night before or two days or four and they're boarding up downtown and they're putting road blockades before the verdict even came in something that was honestly supposed to be stay hush-hush between jurors and a judge. You just know what to expect. You know, my people understand what to expect and that's the saddest part. Yeah, and what's really sad to me is that, you know people on the internet and Instagram often go to this thing where they say. Oh, well, you know, this person was a bad person. We shouldn't be making this person a hero this twenty-six-year-old woman was a front line worker who was doing the most legal thing that an American Canyon. She was sleeping and getting ready for work and people barged into her home and shot her and there's Justice for the wall of her neighbor before there's Justice for her. So you're telling black Americans and black children that your life is less valuable than a plywood wall. Yeah, that's what the issue is. And I know we have to go to break and we're going to be back cuz I know we have a lot more to talk about so you guys join us. We're going to keep this conversation going. Welcome back to daily pop as we mentioned before the break. No officers were charged directly related to the killing of Brianna Taylor protesters hit the streets across the country celebrities like George Clooney Oprah Winfrey and Alicia Keys are all speaking out Kentucky's attorney general warned people not to be influenced by celebrities and social media influencers off. So he says don't understand the case and their Community but George Clooney who's a Kentucky native wrote an open letter saying he is quote ashamed of this decision off, you know, you and I all three of us have had such open conversations about this. What are you guys think when you see something like this after six months of trying to get jobs or somebody? Yeah. It's obviously not served. The whole thing is outrageous. It's outrageous. It's insane and the contrary to how you felt. I'm still shocked and maybe that's my whiteness wage. That I'm still shocked that this didn't Justice wasn't served here. I really thought it was going to be and I saw that it was not gonna happen and you know, and I've been following the case. It's just shocking to me that It ever happened. Honestly, I have to say that there's no justice served. I I kind of have to second what what Justin said, I'm not shocked at all and to put it pretty blatantly and off early. If this was me there would have been Justice served if I was if I was shot sleeping in my bed. All three officers would be their licenses would have been revoked. They would have never been able to be police officers. Again. They have City wage had to pay my family a tremendous amount of money. Like we are not treated equally and yesterday, I mean, I just didn't I we spoke a lot about this before we started the show this morning and we kind of got into a little bit of sort of the racial Justice is yesterday with stassi and everything and I said this to you before the fact that stassi Schroeder has had more of a negative impact to her life off. Okay and has lost every stream of income because she made some ignorant horrific comments and I'm sure she's ashamed of and the police officers who killed and shot somebody while she wage Sleep in her own residence that she pays rent for okay walk free with not a single problem in site can still continue to make money can still connect to pursue the job but they've trained for it is effing bananas. But this is way this world works. This is why people are calling for police reform and I'm going to let you guys found something the person who brushes my hair in the morning for two seconds every day had to go through 1600 out 1600 hours of training before he could touch a follicle on my head, right and police officers go through less. Yeah the end of the day I want to urge everybody. I know November 3rd is coming up and yeah, you guys should get to the polls. But also when your local channels, and your District elections come up and your state elections come up, I want you to Google the people who are running for those offices and I want you to look at what they said or didn't say wage. About what happened to Brianna Taylor McClain are George Lloyd Wright? Those people stay quiet throughout those whole things your answer is deafening. Yeah and did not want those people presiding over and making decisions about your life. That's a question that you have to ask yourself because that woman was twenty-six years old that could have been your daughter and that could have been your thoughts

Sound, familiar well, it's meant to compete with Tik Tok the short video app that seems to be everywhere these days everywhere except India that is we'll get to that in just a moment youtube is trying to set shorts apart from and court creators away from rival Tiktok in a few key ways, I video site is touting its reach more than two billion monthly users also shorts.

Of course youtube is the only social media company making a run at Tiktok in August instagram launched instagram reels like it's short-form friends reels also lets users create fifteen second loop videos with all the bells and whistled and like Youtube instagram integrated reels into its APP. You'll find it at the bottom of the instagram camera on a call with reporters.

It's easy to miss reels videos entirely because they look just like regular videos in your feet.

Rich People Problems
"I realized I've been using the words envy and Jealousy interchangeably when there's actually a fine but stark difference between them. Jealousy. is about fear. Jealousy is anxiety about losing what you have that nervous feeling that someone is out for your spot. Envy on the other hand is about desire. Envy is wanting what you don't yet have its daydreaming and striving and keeping up with the Joneses. But. The primary difference I would say is that these are two radically different feelings. Jealousy. Is Corrosive and painful, and it drives you absolutely up the wall. Envy on the other hand is almost. Fun. I mean I feel like what my therapist would tell you that my obsession with comparison is like not good for my life. But I also feel like it's a strong part of unfortunately my personality for writer Evie Ebert envy is a byproduct of ambition I had kind of built my life around this idea that This version of me and the president is not the real me. The real me is this like Hologram of myself that I'm pursuing where things work out the way that I want them to and I'm better and I'm smarter and I'm more successful and I'm getting there. and. Then it was sort of like the pandemic HIV extremely harsh pause button on everyone's life and it was like, no the what you have right now is all that there is there's no forward movement we had to remind ourselves to be happy to be alive and lucky if we're in good health. Grateful for what we have right where we are. Blake. That's hard to sustain. Aspiration without opportunity ferments envy. Of course, I could be much worse off but I was like green with envy about people whose homes are larger were living in better climates maybe who had outdoor pools and I had a real inclination to kind of judge myself for becoming obsessed with. Who has a better basically and so I was like, no, this is part of my self care practice is allowing myself to be annoyed by people. But then every realized that other people were probably allowing themselves to be annoyed at her. He's essay in the cut is titled Do. You hate me for my lawn. She has a law and it feels extremely luxurious like being able to open the front door and signed my four year old out I feel like marie-antoinette basically for a while felt like everything and anything was a luxury showing off your sour dough bread meant you had groceries Zoom conferences meant you had a job complaining about your kids had human contact you can't win at this. I mean, some people are having A. Hard. Time but nobody's having fun and then in the midst of pointing our fingers at each other and tossing are envy around our immediate circle. We picked our ears up. We heard sound. Horrible sound. No has been the siren song of extremely wealthy celebrities. Huge We rose up and grabbed R N D, r proverbial pitchforks, and we marched to the photographs of Drake's weirdly empty hotel lobby of mansion. We swarmed to pick apart the celebrity bookshelves on zoom. We roundly mocked the rich and famous as insistence that all in this together it was so overtly tone-deaf. Are. Envy. was almost. Delicious I'm having this resentment and you're having to and it's it's something that we're kind of sharing. I feel like it's part of the shared pandemic experienced. It was suddenly like we were truly all in this together. Freud talks about this in civilization and its discontents that cohesive society unites around a common enemy an out group. There are lots of scary an unfortunate examples of the groups America has ostracized, but the rich and famous are not among them. Because, it's so much more complicated than pure animosity if they're so awful and they're so ridiculous in there. So repugnant why? Why does Kim Kardashian have like a Zillion instagram followers molly young is the literary critic for New York magazine and she was wondering why we want to keep looking at rich people for envy or fantasy or whatever we turn to them for I mean what's interesting about the quarantine is you started seeing a lot of people turn against celebrities right like Ellen complaining that quarantining in her gigantic house made her feel like she was imprisoned or whatever, and finally people are starting. To kind of examine the purpose that these celebrities are serving in our lives need to examine why we're interested in them in the first place

The Shade Room: Pros & Cons
"In a world filled with Daesh ously bountiful boss of headlines and videos that screen world saw the shave room has taken instagram by storm in two thousand fourteen Joachim. Wanda start at the shade room after realizing she can use her love for celebrity gossip to practice her writing. But after hating ten thousand followers you want to realize she was on something. Today, the Shade Room has over twenty million followers on instagram and features regular commentary from celebrities like the descent Nicki. menaj and Ti that last part is what makes the Shade Room truly unique outside of twitter it's pretty rare for celebrities and everyday people to have so many interactions with those blurred lines are also what makes the Shade Room? So controversial whether it's making Ziya, Wade owner of harmful comments or the legal back and forth with Cardi B. When it comes to boundaries, things can get ugly. So today we brought on journalist and author George. M Johnson to help us figure out if the Shane Room is good or bad for the culture. Thank you me. I'm excited. You know the showroom has built an empire. Moving celebrity gossip here's what's your take on the importance of celebrity gossip. Gossip. It kind of is what keeps your career going on social media wise. As media has shifted from red carpets to kind of step of house, you can kind of create your own `Paparazzi. Kylie Jenner. Day. The. Whole Light Brown skinned girl only. Even though it was big, it kept her name out there viability for twenty hours on. Sale somewhere absolutely down, I think that celebrity gossip in general is fun I. Think it just gives me something to think about. Everyday life especially, these days I'm like recently has gotten dark I will say. The thing that? Has To be say. For the most part, it can be fun. I think that there is a difference between having good fun and that exposing like the more vulnerable aspects of somebody's life four laps, all that being said, what's actually start our. Conversation today with the pros. So you our guest you welcome to start off with the pros at Oh i. Froze are that the platform very very large and When they are used for good, can generate a lot of money especially to light nonprofit organizations are community based organizations and especially small businesses. I think a lot times sites will amplify. Small black businesses or business owners were creating things and it literally opens you up to people to support your products i. think in ways when you utilize your platform to uplift. And encourage and support resources in things that are out there for black folks I think that's something that more of. These types of sites can start to do. Now that's the point I do wonder what percentage like if you actually did, what percentage of share on posts are act I kind of lean towards the lifted Maybe one out of every fifteen. Twenty. That's something I. Think if I'm considering what my pro is I think the showroom actually does what I consider a pretty exceptional jobs documenting how black people use the Internet, black folks have. In DEX on social media, you know we are on twitter. So much is referred to as black twitter. This thing that all kind of white corporate executives are trying to figure out and the share room kind of will break down those pieces before black people like I think about the the not obeying video that came out recently. Day aware she. Fucking Bang. Not A. wakeup talking about not obeying and I'm like what is going on and I knew that I can go to the shave room and it will break down who made it why popular all the means they had developed all around it and I think that actually can be a big service like I don't know of too many other places that are talking about. The way. Black people use the Internet and social media like the share room us. Come along with a whole lot of other stuff. Absolute. Auto. I think that this shade room is a reliable platform for black celebrity. A celebrity period is is celebrity gossip every single celebrity whether they want to admit it or not they benefit from the celebrity height machine and that gossip like gossip mechanism the shade room does is provide back black celebrities who are frequently shut out of your us. Weekly's people magazine's it's a place. Where you know a black celebrity knows that somebody is GonNa care who they are what they're doing whether they are selling Tommy T or in the case of the simone dry like usually I like to keep some of the scams but I can be some old was I can go on the find out but also Michelle Obama gives a speech at the Democratic National Convention. Even if I missed it. Yeah NPR. Have NBC. SHAVER. Remarks on that to the thirty years from now we look back. The Oscars, the grammys, the emmys, the institutions that don't frequently reward black talent. We might look back did not see an accurate reflection of what was happening in the culture, our culture at the time American culture at the time. But this Shade Room Shave is GonNa Habit accurate count black people the culture and shaver actually documents a wide variety of black people and I think that's a good thing. Archive of like everything going on black. That's a good point. It's an interesting slice.

Trump Administration to Ban TikTok and WeChat From U.S. App Stores
"I, know there were few couples looking to buy Tiktok away potentially save it I know November twelfth of the deadline for when. Coupled needs to have some sort of deal in place. What is the current situation right now? Well, until a couple days ago, the assumption was that Oracle had won the bidding war for Tiktok, and the way that it was gonna work was instead of a US company buying tiktok or a portion of tiktok in operating it in the United States what Oracle seem to offer was to be a quote technology. Partner, which seemed to mean that they would store the data from tiktok in the United States of United States citizens but it was never really sorted out. It wasn't made very public. So eventually, that seems to have fallen apart or it's possible that president trump just decided that wasn't enough and he wanted more assurances or he really wanted a an American company to take over Tiktok and he didn't get that so. After all that stuff happened, we saw the Chinese government start pushing back on these ideas and saying, well, we're not GonNa let you any other country by technology that is very unique to China Especially, the algorithms, right the way that they sort all these videos, which is really what tick talks flavor is. Right that's what makes it work, and as a result now, we're in this space where it seems like You know we've we've we've pulled the trigger or you know set off the new girl everyone WanNa call it and We are now at the point where. The unless there's a real deal that gets put in place it's over. Yeah this is the this is interesting and surprising. Situation Given that you know with had time we've had several weeks. This executive order was signed back in August and he was sort of a that deal would get done and Not tensions between kind of China and the US is sort of escalated to the point where like now like millions of tiktok users are probably going to be out of luck, right? Yeah and there are a lot of people who are kind of winding up to be the next TIKTOK. which you know it's not there weren't people before trying to be tiktok races that Tiktok was in the right place at the right time and had the right branding to really take off. So Youtube has a new thing called shorts which is not about clothing. It's it's very similar. The short videos that you can watch tiktok mostly is fifteen sixty second videos. And, we also starting to see that from instagram. We're starting to see it from other apps like completely new social networks. I have no idea how it's going to play out right? Because it's really you know we're talking about a service that has more than two billion downloads over one hundred, million US users and. To do anything INCR- as a group is very hard right? That's why they tend to stick in their APP. So I I'm really I'm curious to see whether or not. They'll all kind of move mass to another social network yet and I know we we ignored mostly we chat. But which looks like it's not gonNA work after Sunday. It hasn't had the breakout success of. TIKTOK. But. There's. A sizable audience here in the US. For which at right? Yeah and also it's a it's a hugely popular APP. Overseas is very much like what happened when facebook bought WHATSAPP Apres a lot of people was What why is this worth nineteen billion dollars and then you know we started learning about how a outside the United States a WanNa people used what's APP because there were so many text message charges between different countries and in Europe with her a lot of countries in a small space that is really annoying. So that's what got people using it with we chat a lot of it is keeping in touch with family overseas. A lot of people in Asian countries tend to use a different social networks us whether it be line or we chat or we bow or you name it. And so a lot of people who come over here tend to sign up for those absolutely can keep in touch with family overseas because there is no facebook over there. So I have a feeling that they're gonNA probably find something different or they'll find a way around this right but it's it's GonNa be an interesting thing to
The confusing world of potting mix ingredients
"There is a huge and confusing world of blunt potting mixes out there. You've ever stood in the garden center. bags and not quite sure what to buy. Then I'm here to help and I've elicit another expert to odd that up on the matter my guest this week missed a house plot. Ak Vlada Nicholas Cage is a house plant care specialist from Washington, D. C. With a huge following on Instagram, and he also makes them pretty awesome tiktok videos to I. I came across him via a wonderful Tiktok where he was doing a matchup between computer games and House Plant Care, which is absolutely brilliant. Open link to that in the show notes because we're GONNA be doing some decoding of posing mixes I'm working out exactly what you need I. Guess. The first question is, do you need to make your own bespoke potting mixes from individual ingredients or can I buy something off the shelf? Here's missed the house plans thoughts on the matter. There are two general types of wanting me sold out there. You have mixed plants for succulents and CACTI. We'd succulent Yes. The lot of them are good in you could use straight out of the bag. However with tropical makes in most cases for most Hobby House from growers. This use some extra of the bag. The main reason is most of these commercial makes or not or. Yes. It's all about the holes. POROSITY is really important concept to grasp when it comes to choosing your house plant potting mixes and the truth is that not all hose grated equal in soil water narrow held in for spacey's in between particles in these horse can be different sizes. We can generally classify his micro pores or lower floors in microprocessors smokers. These breweries they're often leads it to the naked eye while Mike reports are not in my reporters important for who who'd area because they hold oxygen. Whereas Mike reporters are important for absorbing holding water so It's important to maintain both adequate. In water supply for all planned growth in a city to have both micro in. In the soil. In when they say the most policies aren't enough. They don't have a lot of these reports. They don't provide a lot of Austin for the roads. In order to have a good solid structure, it has both micro might reports you need a goods ratio of small medium, large particles in particles of different sizes. Probably most commercial mixes the problem is a they contained mostly Moss, which consists of very fine particles. So you'd have only only fine particles the slow only pretend micro voice, which means it will retain water. You won't have a lot of oxygen into also compact very easily. If you've listened tonight sustainability episodes, then hopefully, you'll have some awareness of the sustainability issues that are surround Pete and its use in house plan compost. But it remains the fact that many many production nurseries still supply their house plants in potting mixes that contain an extremely high level of Pete. So how come those nurseries can grow plants the look amazingly lush and well but when we get those plants into our homes with and don't change the potting mix they start to struggle well, fortunately Vlad's on hand to explain that as well when a plant is getting locked to light it photosynthesis more and as a result three, pulling more water from the soil. What this means, the roots will not be sitting in west, salt for a long time. So the chances overthrow brought will be low. And this is why plant nurseries can grow in these next. Nurseries provide huge amounts of light. They have ruled stay have walls made out of glass. Fifty Times more than the plants in our homes. So nurseries actually need party makes they retain a lot of water which is why they can use these leaks. Straight out of the bag, but the problem with growers is bid. We don't have this salon life in our homes and. Most people even if they do have a lot of wife. Did Not provide to their clans is deeply usually choose plan place from based on that where to look good noth- according to how much light is to get in a plant doesn't get a good amount of lights it will synthesize less and. Pulling less water from the soil meaning, they will be sitting sweat soil longer and increase. Should you be changing the soil on your new house plants? The me get them home from the nursery. This is a subject of enormous debate in various house plant forums. But here's Vlad take plants in nurseries. They usually go through periods of very. Intense growth and the soil that the coming could be. Deficient imaging by the time you get them. So if plans is Lutheran deficiency, of course when giving new so soon as you can continue developing well, also there is accumulation of salts in the soil over time, they will burn the roads. So the longer you leave a plan inside soil more damaging will have on the roads. So If a plant needs to be deported usually. Again.

Whether it be to get more views likes comments or followers. To Me, this is laziness and against the terms of service, and if they find out, they'll actually ban you.

Use this when you create new post, you want to always have the same feel for what you already have out there. If you go over to my instagram, you'll see that all of my post. Look the same when I post a picture. It has the same colors and my logo on it. When I give out a shout out to my podcast or blog, they all look the same. When I post infographics, they all have the same basic shirts and my logo on it.

It's easy to start a posting on social media in general and end up. Posting just opposed because you have to get something out there because that is what your schedule says you must do. Your goal is to post things to gain attention and to use that to turn that attention into customers. This starts from the beginning with how you even set up your instagram account.

"Just a heads up here we'll be talking about nudity and there's some swearing in this episode Okay Okay Joanne Leah you're an artist what kind of our d make I make images of nude mostly female sometimes trans sometimes male bodies using only bright colors inspired by fetishes sexuality sensuality no undergarments but their genitals does and sometimes nipples are covered in some way the reason that is is because I have to post my images and social media because I'm artist and social media is very important for artists to be visible that's the power that instagram wields over artists the platform which has more than one billion user there's has a chilling effect and Joanne makes decisions about her art based on what's acceptable on social media my first account was removed in two thousand fifteen and I basically had to start over wasn't a huge account or anything but it was devastating felt horrible so the body of work that I have now is a direct result from getting that account removed so I started to wonder what I could get away with so I was like okay I'm gonNA use bright colors gonNA cover differ parts of the body I'm GonNa make fake vaginas and like put them in front of real vaginas and see what happens you know in my work I try to cover up female nipples or any apple's really or I see if the algorithm will tell the difference between a quote Unquote Mail and quote unquote female nipple or anywhere in between it's definitely made me self-censor my work quite a bit what exactly are instagram's community guidelines when it comes to nudity no close up images of human buttocks no nipple female nipples I don't know how they can tell his nipples are what gender but and no sexual acts in photography they do allow nudity in painting sculpture so instagram specifically calls out so-called or what they determined to be female nipples correct so you can put up a picture of what looks like the chest of a man on and that will be just fine correct but if it's what is perceived as being a woman's chest that is not okay correct tell me about this this meeting walk me through it I can't tell you exactly who is there we had to sign a nondisclosure agreement saying that we wouldn't attribute any quotes to any specific person. I'm telling you that I was there but I can't tell you who else was there unless I have their permission they had a the presentation that explained what their policies are what their mission statement is what their values are so privacy authenticity safety things like that they went through all of the engineering and limitations and then people started voicing their grievances pretty quickly and like offering ideas I know one of the ideas was to have people control the content that they see so if they want to put a filter on their account that says I don't WanNa see nudity than don't see nudity another idea was to have an image kind of have like a black film over it and you click on it if you WANNA see graphic imagery it's coming down to People WanNa self-censor and not have instagram tell them what they can and can't see so what was what was instagram's reaction to all of these suggestions their brains were kind of lake going in circles a little bit how they would achieve all of these things if they're even possible to achieve they were definitely open I think it was a really good dialogue during the meeting did the issue of the female nipple policy the dot com up McCall Lebron an artist activist educator she kept saying how can you tell the difference between a male nipple and a female in that bill hi is a female nipple different than a male nipple and there was just no response at all instagram doesn't really have a response as to why they are determined running who's nipples are male and who's nipples are female their only response is that it doesn't follow their guidelines they made a comment about it not aligned inning with typical values I'm not sure what they meant by that it was very vague basically blamed society correct science broadly does not agree with seeing nipples that we deem to be female and therefore that is unacceptable on our platform correct why was this meeting taking it's now are you the reason that this meeting took place I don't think that I'm the only reason but and I strongly suggested that they hold a summit meeting yes so I don't WanNa say that I was the only reason I think I was part of part of many reasons back in two thousand sixteen Joanne did change dot org petition to Stop Instagram from censoring art more than thousand signatures leader facebook got in touch with her today Joanne is basically an instagram mm censorship whisper when an artist gets their post taken down they reach out to her for help and she contacts facebook to get them to reconsider that unofficial system is less than ideal Joann doesn't advertise the service so you just have to be in the know but instagram has had this nudity policy in place since it launched in two thousand ten and that's the best solution Joanne has been able to find so far that's why this meeting with instagram feel so significant I think is extremely significant I mean I also feel like they might start opening up like this to their users more often they couldn't give us a deadline of win any of these things would be implemented if at all they did promise that the guidelines would evolve in would change but they didn't say when and how here's the thing instagram isn't the Internet it's a prominent platform that means a lot to artists but it's just one website and companies can do whatever they want when it comes to censoring speech and on their platforms that's entirely legal but instagram also depends on its users to keep going so when a bunch of museums and artists with large followings they want things to change that's a problem for instagram one that it needs to balance against a bunch of other interests when you let a platform run free it gets taken over by terrible people so people will post pornography they'll post a lot of extremely violent imagery they'll interfere with our elections and people will stop using the platform right it doesn't take too much terrible content on a platform to describe people away and of course once you drive people away then Dr advertisers away at all of a sudden instagram wouldn't have a business that's Casey Newton.

So that's where I'm pulling all of these all of this information from so looking at later for our Instagram account. I'll talk about almanac. I so whenever I was started doing the or before I started doing it. I wasn't seeing much growth in our Instagram. In fact, I was seeing maybe negative growth or like decline is that the opposite of growth decay. I was seeing decay happening on Instagram where posts were getting less engagement. We weren't really gaining many followers. If any at all, and I need you had about like how many followers like two thousand on almanac. I think twenty to perhaps. Okay. So a little over two thousand. I wasn't seeing much growth in it had been at that place for several months, and I was I was using a couple hashtags, but not being very strategic about it all of these things. So I decided okay, I'm going to be strategic, and I'm going to have more. I have a couple more questions for you technically a business account on album, and I am technically business account. Okay. Yes. Do you have the thing where you can sell things through Instagram? I do. Okay. I have that. I just these are I I have some conspiracy theories. You should you. Absolutely. I'm pretty sure there is some things to happen whenever you get a business account, you stop showing up in people's feeds as easily and I have played around with that like tagging products with people can buy from Instagram. I also think the algorithm does not do you any favors when you use that as well? So I don't use that. And put a pin in algorithms. We'll talk about that in a second. Yes. I have some things to say there too. Yes. Okay. So keep going so yet about two thousand followers. It was linked pretty stagnant. Yup. And then you started by shit. I'm using thirty. Hush tags. Thirty all thirty hashtags in different hashtags every for basically every post and twice a day. And I started seeing so much growth. Like, we literally doubled our weekly followers like how how many followers we were getting a week. Not so much per post engagement in terms of likes the likes were staying about the same. But we started getting more comment. So I think people seeing us in their feed more often made them want to have more conversations with us. And I wasn't really changing anything with the stories. Like, I wasn't adding many more of those or anything like that. So I was trying to trying to keep it like trying to keep a pretty clean experiment here as much as possible. So did that for a couple of weeks? No super impressed with it. And then actually someone in on the post on the being boss Instagram account mentioned some new algorithm things around posting or using five hashtags as she said five words in the comment. Oh, yeah. Oh, I will try that next. There were a lot of responses. But I was like where did you hear what did you get this algorithm information because this is my thing with algorithms? I've been at that's a second. We'll all rhythms in general. It's like who the people who seem to have a handle on the algorithms who are they? And where are they getting their information? I don't think anybody actually knows. Oh for like, it's only the Rams report saying like, here's the algorithm situation. Right. That's their proprietary information that allows them to make money.

In the coda the point that I wanna make and these is relevant to the Facebook story is well, I thoroughly and we're we're going to die. Then I think we need to start questioning how much we sort of have this unquestioning belief that all of these technologies and programs are making our lives better. And making us more connected. They're feeling out is with beautiful things. And I think we all need to stop and start asking ourselves more often. These things is is this technology making my life better. Is it? We kind of believe that these things are being rolled out with humanity's best interests in mind, and the truth is all the stuff is run out by people with lots of money and lots of power who want more by.

"Using hashtags on instagram for a while the algorithms have said this guy is just using random hashtags i have nothing to do with his photos we're going to shadow ban them and then i go to see a big event let's say i go to the next star wars premier and i'm taking a lot of photos from the red carpet and i want to have star wars premier hashtag on my instagram photo so that could be added with everyone else's i can still post all those photos to instagram and if you went to my account you would actually see those photos but they would not be shared with all the other star wars premier photos because the shadow ban would keep my hashtag from working and it was all meant to negate this tendency for people to use hashtags had nothing to do with the images they were posting just in an effort to boost the number of us they were getting in early two thousand eleven instagram held another round of investment funding the apps popularity was skyrocketing with more than a million and a half users in february and more than two hundred fifty thousand photos shared each day and investors flocked to the new company at of dangelo was one of those investors as was jack dorsey chris sokha who is an early employees over at google also invested in the company and then all angel investors poured seven million dollars into instagram which still had fewer than five people working there so more than a million dollars per employee which is pretty darn good in two thousand eleven instagram would continue on his trajectory of growth the company would hire three more new employees jessica zoellner joined an august twenty eleven as a community evangelist she acted as part customer service representative and part communicator from the company to the users to explain new features and changes to the app in october two thousand eleven amy cole joined instagram to handle business operations cole had previously worked for sephora and business develop.

"Always be free and that monetization strategies would not involve users coughing up money to pay for the service now i have to do a full episode and hips dramatic at some point because that's another fascinating story of a company that made a huge impact when it launched only the find it self in troubled waters a couple of years later in january two thousand eleven instagram rolled out support for one of its enduring features hashtags the hashtag the pound symbol had already gained popularity over at twitter where users had sort of invented and adopted the practice in an effort to make it easier to follow tweets about specific subjects you would use twitter search and you would search hashtag the term and that way you would just get the tweets that were specifically including that hashtag because otherwise if you just search for a regular word you get a whole bunch of tweets that were not relevant whatever it was you were looking for so it was a way to narrow things down so that was how it worked on twitter but an instagram it would do something similar but this time allow for another possible application a group photo album the way it works on instagram is that you would capture the photo and you would include one or more hashtags to help describe the photos context what the photo is about what's going on in the photo something that's more specific than just hashtag photo perhaps you attended an event and you wanted your image included with others from that same event so you might do something like hashtag jonathan's birthday party and then other people are using that same hashtag and it becomes easy to see all the photos taken by all the people at that event by doing a search on hashtag johnson's birthday party you just use that hashtag and boom your image is going to join all the others tagged with that same label now granted the more general the label the more likely your image is going to be grouped with a bunch of ones that don't really have the same same perspective or the same.

"Accessing this list of who voted for what the first idea that i want to give to you is that you can create relationships by direct messaging people who voted for certain things so let's say you posted something very innocent on your instagram story like maybe it's snowing in your area today so you post a quick video of the snow and you have a little question that says dulech summer or winter and then everyone who votes for your favorite category you can send them a direct message and say oh my gosh me too i love summer boom now you have something a similarity that you've bonded over and you've also slid into that persons direct messages you now create a conversation this conversation might lead to a friendship it might lead to a new customer but that person already trust you a little bit more because you bonded over something and they voted in your poll it also shows your followers that you care about them you're not just asking for their votes generally you actually care about the individual responses and you're taking time to respond to each person now of course you can copy copying pace and have a very generic response or you can actually take the time to heavy hand typed reply to each and every individual voter another example of a way that you can use this ability to see the list of who voted for what is by asking people if they would be interested in some kind of course coaching business freemeal master class or something like that and then if they vote yes i would be interested you can direct message them more info so sometimes on instagram stories are snapchat stories all say something like if you're interested swipe up and send me a chat then i'll get some responses some people will swipe up and say they wanna learn more but i know that there are people who want to learn more in maybe they're just two shied a swipe up and send a chat or maybe they don't know how to swipe up and send a chat however it's much easier and much less intrusive.

"See my posts but when i'm pushing on my instagram stories if i was to use hashtag online business coach i'd be very likely to get on that instagram story but the problem is is not a ton of people are following hashtag online business coach so if instead of hashtag online business coach i just used hashtag online business i believe that i'm setting myself up for better reach on that instagram story because like i said it's unclear how to get onto a hashtag story on instagram if you do end up on one of these larger stories you're going to get more viewers your engagement is going to go up and you're going to have a larger reach so it is more consistent and easier to get on the smaller hashtags but when you're posting onto your instagram's stories i do think it's in your best interest to use some of the ten available hashtags as larger hashtags hashtags that have more followers have more posts and have a larger each because you have a better likelihood of getting on those instagram's stories when you post your instagram feed if you use one of these large hashtags it's very unlikely that you're going to become a top post because that's based off strict numbers we know that's based off lakes and comments and views were we don't know exactly is how to get onto an instagram hashtag so i think that you can roll the dice every once in a while basically and use some bigger hashtag some more broad and more generic hashtags onto your instagram stories that's it for part two of episode 48 i hope you enjoyed this twopart quick mini series about the new recent updates 200 instagram part one again was about instagram's stories and the new ability to archive and highlight your instagram stories and port to which you just listen to was about the new ability to follow hashtags on instagram also now that you've listened this episode if you haven't already i highly recommend you scroll down and of the day.

"Okay. So I have I have I have one for you. There's a place in Paris cold poets, which is its muscle. Which is I think it's fairly new. I mean, I'm not in Paris too often anymore, and I do feel a little bit like a tourist Mina says he when I do go Botts. We went lost time. I was that first of all the interior. I think it's an old charge will something had like mosaics will around frisks gold. Like, oh my goodness. It was absolutely stunning. And then the ball is an old like CLYDE don't even know how to describe it. It was so beautiful. It's really interesting because in Paris. So on the one hand there's these incredibly well designed with great food as well. And then you also can go to these tiny little old fashioned decorated charming places, of course. And I remember we were taken by a friend who was a chef at do the to that pizza place in the eighteenth. And he is going to kill me when you want to go. We're not supposed to say this. We're say it's tiny. It's called pizza began day. It is the most chiming. It's by these. I mean, I don't know. How many times will listen to us like peace on listen. It's but it's probably the best pizza. I've ever had in my life. It really like there's more table. Yeah. It's tiny. In the restaurant, and they all making the food on your lap. Like, the the oven the pizza oven is literally next. You're stealing. Eating. I was like nicking it off the pizza before he was bringing it to us. But the food we ordered. I don't know how many times might have been five of us. I think we will did like nine Pete's because he wants to try them. All it was fantastic. I one of the most was during fashion week actually was one of those what we do during this is what we do drink -solutely. Yeah. So let's talk about influencers and influence on the way that we know consume it. So for me influencing an influence on social media has become this wide-ranging thrown on because whereas ten fifteen years ago people looking for inspiration in the fashion world would have to go and look through fashion archives. Maybe go to a library, if you speak essential Muslim students, and they're obsessed with it a lot of people who can find their curation of influence through Instagram has they discover and they see that their followers follow. And you could find, oh, you know, like archive pictures from ninety Peter Lindbergh that have an incredible amount of influence on designers today in their collections. Just as even the way we're dressing ourselves. I mean, I think if you see a beautiful picture peach limbo like with a shut off the shoulder. Russia would not it's spy you to not button up your Shas, and where it off the shoulder. And this kind of inspiration is endless you can find anything. And I mean, while I'm sure some fashion students still do go and actually look up these references in a library. I'm pretty sure most people, and you might be in Timbuktu, and you can still be part of the fashion dialogue through your feet. We're going to speak to Margaret saying now someone that I actually befriended on Instagram, and I'm sure lots of you follow as well and get to a little bit more about what it takes to be very successful Instagram ah, so just bumped into long lost Instagram friend, Margaret, the people that I met on Instagram. We did we did it on. Long. Now, we have actually what originally struck you about Margaret's Instagram puck captions with really funny on point. But also like if you've been on have feed, it is an extremely colorful original one of a kind Margaret I feel that you were super head of the game. When a lot of people, including bloggers were really using it as kind of like a window into like that blocking world, you really already were treating it like its own editorials of entity. Thanks almost feel like we should be talking to you, not just from the influence a point of view, but actually from like more of a business points few because you'd be advising bronze on why. It's so important to have a strong Instagram profile, can you please through what you would recommend.

She's sitting in this, stuffy, black tie dinner. She's in beautiful Kenzo gown, and she's kind of trying to keep yourself awake. And she gets up and politely walks out as if she's going to and then and then the magic how it's like she's possessed. Kind of alias, actually. I think the tune is cooled mutant brain on.
