1-800-Flowers, Food Network and others wrap up Messenger for ... - Mobile MarketerSunday, February 11, 2018
Day-themed dishes. IHeartRadio's bot lets listeners play a variety of Valentines-themed stations like "Slow Jams Radio" and "Love Songs Radio," which will be hosted by singer Kelly Clarkson until Feb. 18.Insight:The news points to how brands can leverage messaging apps to create one-to-one experiences for holiday's like Valentine's Day. Beyond that, these activations also suggest that brands are looking beyond creating interactive dialogs on Messenger and are increasingly consider how to drive purchases via the platform. This year, U.S. consumers are expected to spend an average of $143.56 on the holiday, up from $136.57 last year, according to the National Retail Federation.Facebook in the past couple of years has urged brands to create chatbots for its platform to open up direct lines of convenient communication with consumers. While chatbots have been criticized by some for their limited functionality and inability to hold a natural conversation with users, the technology continues to evolve with machine learning that makes bots smarter and more adaptive without the need for human intervention. Messenger also has evolved to provide a wider range of functions, although the company is also making an effort to streamline the app after letting it get too cluttered with bots, ads, alert and other features.As the love-themed holiday approaches, not everyone is showing the love for Facebook, as many advocacy groups and parents issue a growing chorus of criticism after the social giant created a messaging platform aimed at children under 13. Messenger Kids has aroused the ire of child advocacy groups and analysts of the tech industry, especially after toymaker Mattel pulled an "Amazon Alexa-esque" device for children for fear that it would spy on kids and use the data collected for ad targeting.

Five Couples Escape the Familiar for Destination Weddings - Louisville.comTuesday, April 16, 2019
Your wedding day and wedding planning are both as hard and as stressful as you make them be.”Kaitlan Bondurant & Robin HerringtonWed on October 20, 2018?Cliffview Lodge, Red River Gorge, Campton, KentuckyPhotographer: Mickie WintersFlowers: Bel-Air Florist, Versailles, KentuckyAttire: Dress from Madison James. Suit from Wildfang.?Hair: Lavish Looks, Sparkle BeelerKaitlan is from Cincinnati and Robin is from Louisville, so Red River Gorge was a good meeting point between the two locations. “Standing in front of the beautiful gorge with all of our friends and family was magical,” Robin says. “We had 60 guests and it was the perfect amount for us. We were able to give all of our guests personal attention, and by the end of the weekend everybody felt like one big family.“(Instagram is) great for initial inspiration, but we started to second-guess our planning decisions after seeing a gorgeous escort card table or fun food station. Trust your instincts and believe in your vision. And get a wedding planner. For real. Jeannie Smith, our planner and coordinator (AshBy Wedding & Event Planning), knew what vendors would be appropriate for what we wanted and, more importantly, knew the vendors that would be willing to trek out into the wilds of Kentucky.”This originally appeared in the Spring/Summer 2019 issue of Louisville Bride.

Clarence Thomas Breaks a Three-Year Silence at Supreme Court - The New York TimesWednesday, April 03, 2019
It deadlocked, and the judge declared mistrial.Over the years, Mississippi courts twice ruled that Mr. Evans had violated Batson v. Kentucky, a 1986 decision that made an exception to the centuries-old rule that peremptory challenges are completely discretionary and cannot be second-guessed.In the Batson case, the court ruled that racial discrimination in jury selection was different, and it required lawyers accused of it to provide a nondiscriminatory explanation.Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who wrote an article in The Yale Law Journal calling for vigorous enforcement of the Batson decision when he was a law student, said that Mr. Evans’s track record in the case mattered in the Supreme Court’s assessment of the sixth trial, which took place in 2010.“We can’t take the history out of the case,” he said.Even the state’s lawyer, Jason Davis, said that “the history in this case is troubling.”Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. asked whether the court was entitled to take account of that history, and Mr. Davis said it could.But he added that Mr. Evans had offered “valid race-neutral reasons for each strike” in the sixth trial.At that trial, Mr. Evans accepted the first black prospective juror and struck the next five. Mr. Evans questioned black prospective jurors closely, asking an average of 29 questions of each of them. He asked the 11 white jurors who were eventually seated an average of one question each.In that disparity, Justice Elena Kagan said, “the numbers themselves are staggering.”Justices Alito and Sonia Sotomayor both suggested that Mr. Evans should have been taken off the case long ago.“Could the attorney general have said, you know, enough already, we’re going to send one of our own people?” Justice Alito asked Mr. Davis, the state’s lawyer.Under Mississippi law, Mr. Davis replied, state officials can step in only when requested by local ones like Mr. Evans, and there was no such request in the Flowers case. “So that was not an option in this case,” he said.Much of the argument delved into Mr. Evans’s stated reasons for striking jurors in the sixth trial.Justice Stephen G. Breyer described the characteristics of two potential jurors, one black and one white. Both were women in their mid-40s who had completed some college, strongly favored the death penalty and had some professional interactions with members of Mr. Flowers’s family. Justice Breyer suggested that race had been the decisive factor.Justice Elena Kagan seemed to agree, noting that the black potential juror had an uncle who worked as a prison guard and a relative who had been victim of a violent crime. “Except for her race,” Justice Kagan said, “you would think that this is a juror that a prosecutor would love when she walks in the door.”The justices had varied responses to whether the reas... https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/20/us/politics/clarence-thomas-speaks-supreme-court.html
