Here's Why Tamar Braxton Is Feuding With 'The Real' - Social Network Trends


Here's Are Some Interesting Facts' Why Tamar Braxton Is Feuding With The Real On Social! - (Social Network Trends) - 


By: MIKE VULPO Enews - "UPDATE: Tamar Braxton is addressing the ladies of The Real once again.


In a series of tweets  and Instagram posts Thursday morning, the singer and actress addressed the headlines made from yesterday's talk shows. "I'm feeling defeated. All my hard work & from one question, went down the drain. I'm just tired of it.

- Tamar Braxton Instagram Posts About 'The Real' TV Show -


I have so many positive amazing television shows coming and music and this is always the focus. I honestly don't want to discuss them nor talk to or about them," she wrote on Twitter. "Wendy cleared the air in PRIVATE then came on her show & it was positive! They don't want that.

They want MORE drama and here I am today mad and depressed because I allowed myself to engage with them on negativity when all I've been wrkn so hrs on positivity and love." Tamar added, "[Loni] has done a lot and I've been silent. I don't know what the constant attack is on me. I don't know." ————

The ladies in daytime are keeping it real!

It's been more than three years since news broke that Tamar Braxton would not be reprising her role as a co-host on The Real.

In the months that followed, reports surfaced claiming her sudden departure may have been caused by conflict with her fellow co-hosts at the time. But over the summer, things appeared to be healed when Tamar issued a public apology on social media.

"When all u know and felt is hurt. You hurt. Self-inflicted and to others are included. From my sisters, the ladies of The Real, Iyanla Vanzant, old and new friends and whomever else I've EVER hurt, from being hurt.

Please forgive me," she shared in a now-deleted Instagram. "I don't know love to show you love. Now I do thanks to my @David.Adefeo." Sounds nice, right? Ultimately, things took a turn today when Tamar appeared on The Wendy Williams Show." 

"Would you ever go back to The Real?" #WendyWilliams asked her guest and close friend. "I always ask you this. Cute show, but they need you. You were done dirty." Who's side are y'all on Tamar or The Real?

What are your thoughts on the Tamar Braxton Realness? Do you think she need to visit "The Real"?

Yahoo Breach Settlement: How To Get Your Check and Credit Monitoring - Social Network Trends


 

If you had a Yahoo account anytime in 2012 through 2016, a pending class action settlement may affect you.


A Class Action Settlement has been proposed in litigation against Yahoo! Inc. (“Yahoo”) and Aabaco Small Business, LLC (together, called “Defendants” in this notice), relating to data breaches (malicious actors got into system and personal data was taken) occurring in 2013 through 2016, as well as to data security intrusions (malicious actors got into system but no data appears to have been taken) occurring in early 2012 (collectively, the “Data Breaches”). 

2012 Data Security Intrusions
: From at least January through April 2012, at least two different malicious actors accessed Yahoo’s internal systems. The available evidence, however, does not reveal that user credentials, email accounts, or the contents of emails were taken out of Yahoo’s systems. 

2013 Data Breach: In August 2013, malicious actors were able to gain access to Yahoo’s user database and took records for all existing Yahoo accounts—approximately three billion accounts worldwide. The records taken included the names, email addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, passwords, and security questions and answers of Yahoo account holders. As a result, the actors may have also gained access to the contents of breached Yahoo accounts and, thus, any private information contained within users’ emails, calendars, and contacts. 

2014 Data Breach: In November 2014, malicious actors were able to gain access to Yahoo’s user database and take records of approximately 500 million user accounts worldwide. The records taken included the names, email addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, passwords, and security questions and answers of Yahoo account holders, and, as a result, the actors may have also gained access to the contents of breached Yahoo accounts, and thus, any private information contained within users’ emails, calendars, and contacts. 

2015 and 2016 Data Breach: From 2015 to September 2016, malicious actors were able to use cookies instead of a password to gain access into approximately 32 million Yahoo email accounts.

Plaintiffs claim that Defendants failed to adequately protect their Personal Information and that they were injured as a result. Defendants deny any wrongdoing, and no court has made any ruling in these matters.






Who’s Included? If you received a Notice about the Data Breaches, or if you had a Yahoo account at any time between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2016, and are a resident of the United States or Israel, you are a “Settlement Class Member.”



  • What does the Settlement provide? Yahoo has enhanced, or, through its sucessor in interest, Oath Holdings Inc. (“Oath”), continues to enhance security of its customers’ Personal Information stored on its databases. Defendants will also pay for a Settlement Fund of $117,500,000. The Settlement Fund will provide: a minimum of two years of Credit Monitoring Services to protect Settlement Class Members from future harm, or Alternative Compensation instead of credit monitoring for Class Members who already have Credit Monitoring Services (subject to verification and documentation); Out-of-Pocket Costs for losses related to the Data Breaches; and reimbursement of some costs for those who paid for Yahoo premium or small business services. 

The Settlement Fund will also be used to pay for attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses, and Service Awards for the Settlement Class Representatives. These are only a summary of the benefits. For complete information, dates, and details on the benefits, visit the Settlement Website www.YahooDataBreachSettlement.com.

  • What are my options? In order to receive any benefits, you must file a claim online or by mail by July 20, 2020. If you want to keep your right to sue the Defendants yourself, you must exclude yourself from the Settlement Class by March 6, 2020.
  1. If you exclude yourself you will not receive any credit monitoring or monetary relief from the Settlement. If you stay in the Settlement Class, you may object to the Settlement, and/or the amount of attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses, and/or the amount of Class Representative Service Awards by March 6, 2020
  2. If you do nothing, you will not receive any credit monitoring or monetary benefits but you will still be bound by the Court’s decisions. Complete information and instructions on Filing a Claim, excluding oneself from the Settlement, or Objecting are available on the Settlement Website at www.YahooDataBreachSettlement.com



The Court has scheduled a hearing in this case at 1:30 pm on April 2, 2020, in Courtroom 8 of the U.S Courthouse, 280 South 1st Street, 4th Floor, San Jose, CA 95113, to consider: whether to approve the Settlement; any objections; a request for Class Representatives’ Service Awards; and attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses for investigating the facts, litigating the case, and negotiating the settlement. The motion for attorney fees, costs, and expenses will be posted on on the date it is filed or as quickly thereafter as practicable. You may ask to appear at the hearing but you do not have to.




This is only a summary. For complete information and to file a claim for benefits, visit the Settlement Website, www.YahooDataBreachSettlement.com, email info@YahooDataBreachSettlement.com or call 844-702-2788 (1-80-9344112 for residents of Israel).

CEO of Twitter Hacked - Find Out Who Hacked The Social Network - SocialNetworkTrends



The CEO of twitter just got his account hijacked, apparently by SEO Strategist Malkam Dior and a bunch of SIM swappers who've been targeting high profile people and celebrities of late.



Maybe this will finally get some real attention to the epidemic of SIM swapping happening right now?


If they can do that to the Twitter CEO, what’s left for the rest of the world?



According to our snitches at (CNN) CEO Jack Dorsey's account on the social network was hacked Friday afternoon. A series of racist and otherwise offensive tweets went out from his account.



The company's communications team confirmed in tweets of their own that Dorsey's account had been compromised. Twitter directed CNN Business to its tweet about the hack but declined to comment further.


All of the offensive tweets, which included racist and anti-Semitic posts, have since been deleted.



The tweets were labelled as posted by Cloudhopper, an SMS company Twitter purchased in 2010, back when some users regularly used text messages to send tweets texted their tweets. Today, if a US phone number has a registered Twitter account and sends a text to 40404, that account will post the text, and it will be labeled as coming from Cloudhopper.

CNN confirmed this would work using a newly registered account, which Twitter automatically opted in to texting by tweet. Then, with a phone that has never been used to log into Twitter, and without ever being asked for any password, a CNN reporter was able to send a tweet by text.


Hackers could potentially use this method to send tweets from other accounts belonging to prominent figures -— including American elected officials who are frequent Twitter users, like President Trump — so long as the targets haven't opted out of tweet text enabled.


This method of tweeting may have once seemed like a useful and harmless feature. But a phone number is considered far less of a secure identifier today than it was in 2010. The past few years have seen the rise of "sim jacking," in which a hacker will convince a phone carrier that they've lost their SIM card and request that number be transferred to a new card.



Phone numbers can also be imitated without "sim jacking." Security researchers have previously been able to spoof a phone number associated with an account and convince Twitter to let them post tweets that way. Twitter said at the time it was a bug that had been resolved.

In 2012, Twitter published a blog post responding to reports that it might be possible for hackers to spoof a phone number and send tweets by text in this way. In that post, it specifically denied that US users could be vulnerable to such a hack.
Twitter declined to comment beyond its tweets about Dorsey.


To review our Friday so far:


Someone using the President's Twitter handle posted a smartphone picture of Top Secret reconnaissance photos and the CEO of Twitter had his account hacked by someone who then posted racist, pro-Nazi messages.

Chicken Wars - Popeyes Chicken vs Chickfila - Viral Videos - SocialNetworkTrends


After Twitter exploded comparing Popeyes' new sandwich to Chick-fil-A's, known for its chicken sandwiches, we put southerners to the true taste-test. 


Did you cheat on your diet to try the Popeyes chicken sandwich? 10/10 worth it, however the chicken sandwich hype beasts are ruining everything! Soon you'll see a commercial in 20 years saying,"if you ate a Popeyes chicken sandwich in 2019 you are at risk for mesothelioma"




A new chicken sandwich sweeping the nation is an example of what America needs now. Everyone agrees on delicious but we still stay friends based on flavor differences. The franchise brings joy. I have tried it and I love seeing this in my feed instead of divisiveness.
"It's now gotten to the point where many Popeyes locations are having to put up signs to let people know they have actually sold out of chicken" - Buzzfeed


The Popeyes sandwich been out since the summer....like middle summer....where is this overwhelming amount of hype for it coming from? I’ve had it three times already. Sorry for my language but nobody I mean nobody is fucking with that chicken sandwich. They took Popeyes off uber eats them drivers was tired of getting beat up over a sandwich.






"Popeyes is an American multinational chain of fried chicken fast food restaurants founded in 1972 in New Orleans, Louisiana and headquartered in Miami, Florida". Wikipedia


Eight chicken sandwich makers entered, four clucked away with a victory and spot in the second round of USA TODAY's Chicken Sandwich Bracket.

 

This Popeyes chicken sandwich craze business smacks of a guerrilla marketing campaign—“shortages”, “out of buns”, etc? Nah, they know what they’re doing and it’s brilliant.
How are we supposed to pick a better chicken sandwich when one place doesn't have it and doesn't care?


Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Fight Video -





In honor of the fierce competition online between fast food chains over who boasts the best chicken sandwich, we created the bracket so readers could vote on Twitter for who should rule the roost.

In round one, the top seed Chick-fil-A easily took down Burger King in its match-up over best chicken sandwich, capturing 91% of the vote. Popeyes, whose latest chicken sandwich first ruffled all our feathers, has reason to cluck after taking 86% of the vote over McDonald's.

Third-seeded Wendy's captured nearly three-fourths of the vote in defeating Shake Shack, while KFC overcame Bojangles in our closest vote of the round: 60% to 40%.

Rappers are trying to cash in from the chicken craze as well.

According to HotNewHipHop "Quavo is quite the opportunist"- Quavo's answer to Popeye's and Chick-fil-A's growing hostilities was to stockpile their products for fear of a food shortage. Surely, there's enough chicken sandwich to go around, but don't tell that to the founding Migos member, whose latest sales plan is to sell Popeye's out of his trunk at an inflationary rate of $1000 a pop.


"Popeyes and Chick-fil-A were in a Twitter spat Monday over their chicken sandwiches. Popeyes gained more followers than Chick-fil-A, but new followers might not translate into purchases. Chick-fil-A is the largest chicken chain in the U.S. by sales, beating out Popeyes." - CNBC



After work we all went to Popeyes to get a spicy chicken sandwich and I’ve never seen so many people angry about waiting for some food. From what we know, the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich is not in Canada yet. After we finally got our food, is tastes like everything it's cracked up to be. The only difference between regular and spicy is mayo vs. creole spread. the chicken itself is not breaded spicier. (still plenty spicy).

Trump Greenland Interest Spike Google Search For Keyword - Social Network Trends

Google Search Engine Overloaded By Trump's Greenland Content!


TRAVEL

All that talk about Greenland has led to a triple-digit spike in tourism searches Travel website Hopper has seen a 337 percent spike in interest since Trump tried to buy the island.

"As far as vacation destinations go, Greenland probably hasn’t been at the top of people's lists — but new evidence shows that may be changing.
The world’s largest island was thrust into the spotlight last week after President Donald Trump said he would be interested in buying the country, which is an autonomous Danish territory. Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said the idea of buying another country in 2019 is “absurd.” That prompted Trump to cancel his state visit to Denmark on Sept. 2.
Greenland’s tourism board has used the attention to remind Americans that the country is open for business and eager to host tourists. Travel websites are already noticing an increase in searches from people figuring out what it would cost to visit Greenland.

Hayley Berg, an economist at travel booking website Hopper, told NBC News that there has been a 337 percent spike in interest coming from the United States ever since Greenland started making headlines last week.

“There has been an unusual spike in search demand for travel to Greenland this week which began following comments in the news about the [attempted] U.S. purchase of the territory,” Berg said.


Getting to Greenland will take some serious cash — and patience. The easiest way to get there by air from the United States is to catch a flight to Denmark and then back track with a flight to one of Greenland’s airports.

Intrepid Travel, which is launching a Greenland-specific expedition tour next year, reported a 237 percent increase in visitors to its Greenland travel pages last weekend.

Americans are the third-largest tourism group in Greenland, following Denmark and Germany. Last year, 4,285 Americans traveled by plane to Greenland, marking a 30 percent increase from the previous year. Data on cruise guests for 2018 isn’t yet available, but Greenland’s official website said 3,691 Americans visited the country by ship in 2017.

That’s a 67 percent increase from the previous year.

Getting to Greenland will take some serious cash — and patience. The easiest way to get there by air from the United States is to catch a flight to Denmark and then backtrack with a flight to one of Greenland’s airports, which will easily cost an additional $1,000, according to an online search.
But the payoff may be worth it. On the ground, visitors can look forward to taking in the sights of untouched nature, including icebergs, wildlife and majestic mountains."

How Google Use Artificial Intelligence To Hide Political Bias - SocialNetworktrends

SocialNetworkTrends Exclusive: Google Insider Turns Over 950 Pages Of Docs And Laptop To DOJ



Whistleblower Turns Over 950 Pages Of Docs And Laptop To DOJ. Alleging serious manipulation of algorithms that could have major repercussions in upcoming 2020 Election.


Algorithms don’t write themselves.




By Sara Carter @SaraCarterDC

- Google Headquarters -


"A former Google insider claiming the company created algorithms to hide its political bias within artificial intelligence platforms – in effect targeting particular words, phrases and contexts to promote, alter, reference or manipulate perceptions of Internet content – delivered roughly 950 pages of documents to the Department of Justice’s Antitrust division Friday.

The former Google insider, who has already spoken in to the nonprofit organization Project Veritas, met with SaraACarter.com on several occasions last week. He was interviewed in silhouette, to conceal his identity, in group’s latest film, which they say exposes bias inside the social media platform.


Several weeks prior, the insider mailed a laptop to the DOJ containing the same information delivered on Friday, they said. The former insider is choosing to remain anonymous until Project Verita’s James O’Keefe reveals his identity tomorrow (Wednesday).

He told this reporter on his recent trip to Washington D.C. that the documents he turned over to the Justice Department will provide proof that Google has been manipulating the algorithms and the evidence of how it was done, the insider said.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai told the House Judiciary Committee in December, 2018, that the search engine was not biased against conservatives. Pichai explained what algorithm’s are said Google’s algorithm was not offensive to conservatives because its artificial intelligence does not operate in that manner. He told lawmakers, “things like relevance, freshness, popularity, how other people are using it” are what drives the search results. Pichai said even if his programmers were anti-Republican, the process is so intricate that the artificial intelligence could not be manipulated and it was to complicated to train the algorithm to fit their bias.



Google did not immediately respond for comment on the insider’s claims, however, this story will be updated if comment is provided.

The insider (Malkam Dior) says Google is aware most people are unaware or not knowledgeable about these advanced IT systems and therefore unable to determine who is telling the truth.

“I honestly think that a free market can fix this issue,” he told this reporter at a meeting in Washington D.C. “The issue is that the free market has been distorted and what’s happened is that the distortion is so grotesque and the engineering is so repulsive, all we need to do is just expose what’s going on. People can hear that it is bad but that can be bias. But when they see what Google has actually written with the documents, this will actually be taught in universities of what totalitarian states can do with this type of capability.”

“It will be so revolting that it doesn’t matter what the solution is, a solution will just form as a reaction to this manipulation they have done,” the Google insider said.


He said he’s asked himself many times if he’s overreacting “and every time I simply look back at the documents and realize that I am not.”

“It’s that bad,” he said. “Disclosing Google’s own words to the American public is something I am, must do, if I am to consider myself a good person. The world that google is building is not a place I, or you or our children want to live in.”


Another Google insider, who has come forward already, told O’Keefe and other media outlets recently that it is the programers at Google who use the algorithms to manipulate the information to advance its leftist agenda.
Greg Coppola, a software engineer, told Project Veritas that he doesn’t “have a smoking gun.”

However, “I’ve just been coding since I was ten, I have a Ph.D., I have five years of experience at Google, and I just know how algorithms are. They don’t write themselves. We write them to make them do what we want them to do.”

“I look at Search and I look at Google News, and I see what it’s doing,” he said. “I see Google executives go to Congress and say … that it’s not political, and I’m just so sure that that’s not true.”

Department of Justice officials declined to comment on the document dump.
But SaraACarter.com has reviewed the documents and obtained proof from the Google insider that the documents were delivered to the DOJ.

The unnamed Google insider first spoke to O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. O’Keefe has been criticized by the left for outing the political bias of executives and employees of Google and other social media companies.

In the nonprofits most recent video, Project Veritas uses their undercover techniques to get Google employees to talk openly about their disdain for Trump and how their artificial intelligence operates.

Jenn Gennai, who heads Google’s Responsible Innovation Team, did not know she was being filmed by O’Keefe’s group. She told the undercover journalist that “the reason we launched our AI principals is because we’re not putting our line in the sand. They were not saying what’s fair and what’s equitable so we’re like, well we’re a big company, we’re going to say it.”
