Wed, 24 Jan 2018 00:00:33 GMT

Last March, AB InBev announced every single bottle of beer it brews will be done with renewable energy by 2025. The company is making progress on that pledge and by this spring, every bottle of Budweiser brewed in the U.S. will be made with renewable electricity. This week the brand is unveiling a new symbol it will be putting on each bottle produced with 100% renewable energy.

These 2 survey questions could determine publishers’ Facebook fates

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 19:33:31 GMT

When Facebook announced last week that it was going to lean on its users to determine the trustworthiness of websites, it was saying, essentially, algorithms aren’t good enough at this yet, and we need you to help us keep fake news off our site. To some, it also looked like Facebook was putting the question of …

When Facebook announced last week that it was going to lean on its users to determine the trustworthiness of websites, it was saying, essentially, algorithms aren’t good enough at this yet, and we need you to help us keep fake news off our site. To some, it also looked like Facebook was putting the question of publisher trustworthiness back into the hands of a system that had spread fake news so widely to begin with—a system ripe for manipulation or partisanship.

Opposing Visions Could Be Causing Turbulence For Airbnb’s Flight Plans

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 18:15:30 GMT

The modest aims of Airbnb’s Wall Street-savvy CFO are at odds with CEO Brian Chesky’s lofty ambitions.

“Let’s say you could wave a magic wand and have the perfect flying experience, what would that look like?” Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky not-so-casually tweeted back in April of last year. There has been speculation for a while that Airbnb would get into flights, but the question has remained: How it will do so?

A Closer Look Behind The Luscious Fashion Of “Phantom Thread”

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 15:51:20 GMT

Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest is about a high-profile dressmaker in 1950s London. We talked to the film’s costume designer Mark Bridges about collaborating to bring that world to life.

In movies about successful musicians or comedians, the music or comedy on display has to pass the smell test. This fictional art must be authentically strong enough for viewers to agree that, yes, the artist is worthy of their station. It’s why we buy Jenny Slate as a burgeoning stand-up comic in Obvious Child, and why it makes sense that The Wonders would have a hit with That Thing You Do.

Last September, my colleague Steven Melendez wrote about the Google sponsored $30 million competition to fly a robot to the moon. The Lunar XPrize zeroed in on five startups to be finalists.

Tech’s Super-Rich Need A Crash Course In How To Donate For Impact

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 14:00:02 GMT

What good is all that wealth unless the people wielding it know how to identify the causes and organizations that could benefit most from it?

In December 2016, Open Impact, a social change advisory firm, reported some strange behavior by Silicon Valley’s wealthiest givers. While overall giving has reached record highs in the region–it’s estimated to be at least $5 billion annually, per data from 2013–very little was flowing to local organizations, many of whom aid those struggling with things like affordable housing, which is directly related to the tech boom.

Is Condé Nast Entertainment Finally Ready To Take Hollywood By Storm?

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 12:29:33 GMT

Publishing giant Condé Nast has been trying to find its place in film, TV, and digital video for years–and president Dawn Ostroff feels their time is now.

Books have long been a go-to source for movie producers looking for their next film. While “based on the best-selling novel . . .” continues to pop up in just about every other trailer, Dawn Ostroff has been tasked with making “based on that interesting magazine article you read that one time . . .” just as prevalent, using Condé Nast’s extensive library of content.

Truthinadvertising.org (TINA.org) has big problems with a recent Gillette national ad campaign. The company, in both commercials and on social media posts, highlighted its Boston headquarters, alluding to the fact that its products are made there. The problem is, Gillette’s products are not predominately made in the United States, according to TINA.org, and that means the company may be deceptively advertising. The activist group says it contacted Gillette about the campaign, and the company reportedly took down many of its social media posts. It did not, however, pull its TV commercials.
