Tinder’s CEO Left The Company, Less Than A Year After She Was Hired.

In a letter to shareholders, Tinder's newly appointed CEO Bernard Kim announced that Tinder's former CEO Renate Nyborg would be leaving the company. In his letter, Kim outlined his "observations" from 62 days on the job. Kim said that Tinder has fallen short on product execution, attracting new users, and getting people to spend money even as it has continued to add new bells and whistles to its app in recent quarters. These additions include an integration with Spotify called "Music Mode," which allows people to share a music "Anthem" on their profile and "Blind Date," a feature that pairs people based on interests before revealing their photos. The letter went with the dating application monster's profit for the three months finishing off with June, which sent Match Group stock down 2...

Burberry Was Once Again A Favourite Haunt Shirtless Hollywood Actor Adam Driver.

During the summer season, there is an accessory that everyone is dying to see. A new commercial for Burberry's "Hero" fragrance, directed by Jonathan Glazer and photographed by Mario Sorrenti, features actor Adam Driver going viral for the second time in a year. In the ad, Driver can be seen running across a deserted beach at dusk with a mighty, caramel-colored horse in tow. The two beings dive into the ocean together and emerge as a single being—a centaur. This is a continuation of the first frenzy-inducing "centaur" commercial released by the brand exactly a year ago. The actor's fan base speculated that the rugged campaign images—which show Driver shirtless in waist-deep, crystal blue water—were a unanimous societal response to the question, "What is the female gaze?" (Originating...

Expectations For Ronaldo Look Bleak As Transfer Speculation Heightens.

Last year, superstar Cristiano Ronaldo made a sensational return to Manchester United after spending five seasons with Real Madrid. But it appears that the 37-year-old wants to play in the Champions League again, which means he may have to leave his current club. Manchester United says it has no plans to sell the player, but peace talks between the two camps have reportedly failed this week after Ronaldo's heart was set on playing at the very highest level while he still can. However, despite being one of the greatest players to ever play the game, it seems Ronaldo's options are limited. According to widespread reports in European media outlets this week, Atlético Madrid had been a potential destination for him but not everyone at the Spanish club was happy with the possibility of signing ...

She Decided To Remove Ableist Slander From The Word For “Hot” After Receiving Backlash From Disability Supporters.

After facing online backlash and criticism from disability campaigners, Beyoncé announced that she will remove an ableist slur from her new album, "Renaissance." The 40-year-old singer received rave reviews when she debuted her dance-inspired seventh studio album on Friday, but she came under fire over the weekend when fans noticed the inclusion of a derogatory term in the song "Heated." On the track, co-written by Drake, Beyoncé sings the line: "Spazzin' on that ass, spazz on that ass." The word "spaz" was originally an offensive slur referring to people with cerebral palsy, but has since been reclaimed and used by some members of the disabled community. However, the word is still considered demeaning by many others, including disability advocate Hannah Diviney. "So @Beyonce used the w...

We Are Not All That Happy With Our Performance Last Quarter. Snap Evaluates Its Stocks 25 After A Brief Period.

The parent company SNAP of Snapchat posted worse revenue growth results than it had expected, and its shares tanked more than 25% in after-hours trading on the news. Speaking last month, Snap warned investors that the economy had worsened faster than it expected, and said its revenue growth would likely be at the low end of its previous guidance. On Thursday, the company said revenue grew just 13% to $1.1 billion during the quarter. Snap also posted a quarterly net loss of $422 million, compared to a $152 million loss in the same quarter last year. And daily active users grew 18% year-over-year to more than 347 million, a five percentage-point slowdown in growth rate from the year prior. In a letter to financial backers on Thursday, the organization highlighted "a progression of critica...

Her Sensed-The Date She Liked Wearing Couture Gown Amal Follows.

If your wardrobe is in need of a little style boost, consider directing your attention to Lake Como, Italy, where Amal Clooney has shown off her looks of head-turning hemlines. Amal Clooney kicked off her holiday in style, wearing a sequined mini by Ermanno Scervino. She was seen on a date night with husband George Clooney before boarding a boat with friends. The strapless dress is crafted from layered intricate lace with a cinched waist and ruffled skirt. The human rights activist and lawyer wore the dress with gold sandals and statement earrings for her night out. She previously wore the same dress for another date night with George in June. Date night styling can be tricky, but Amal has an eye for great dresses that sing rather than shout. She often opts for outfits that are more sub...

A Judge Orders A Hearing On October Regarding The Lawsuit Against Elon Musk And Twitter.

A judge on Tuesday ruled that Twitter's lawsuit against Elon Musk over their $44 billion acquisition agreement should go to a five-day trial in October. The decision came at the end of the first hearing in the case over whether to expedite the proceedings. When it filed the suit last week, days after Musk moved to terminate the Twitter purchase deal, Twitter requested a four-day trial in September. Musk's legal team opposed the motion. Tuesday's hearing featured sharply worded arguments from both sides — including Twitter's lawyer at one point referring to Musk as a "committed enemy" — setting the stage for what is almost certain to be a contentious legal battle. Twitter's lead counsel William Savitt showed up cocked and locked against Musk toward the beginning of the consultation as he...

Actress Selma Blair revealed that she hopes to appear in a "Legally Blonde 3" sequel. Released in 2001, the original "Legally Blonde" starred Reece Witherspoon as Elle Woods, a California sorority president turned Harvard Law student.

Witherspoon initially announced that a third installment of the franchise was in the works in 2018, tweeting a clip of herself in the character's trademark pink bikini.

Black Hole Police Discovered The Dormant Black Hole Just Outside Our Own Galaxy For The Very First Time.

An unusually bright, suspended black hole has been discovered in a nearby new universe, according to a new research based on observations relayed by ESO's Very Large Telescope. Astronomers have discovered a new type of black hole, one that does not emit high levels of X-ray radiation like most black holes. Called a "dormant stellar-mass black hole," this phenomenon had not been "unambiguously detected outside our galaxy," according to the team of US and European Southern Observatory's researchers involved in the study. The recently identified dark opening, called VFTS 243, is something like multiple times the mass of our sun, and it circles a warm, blue star weighing multiple times the sun's mass, making it part of a parallel framework. "It is staggering that we scarcely know abou...

Brad Pitt’s Lightweight Linen Skirt Was The Captivating Sight Of The Week.

People living in Europe and other territories are currently enduring record-breaking heat, and their toughest pleas are to ensure that they don't draw the curtains, turn on the fan or lie still in the least. Like Brad Pitt, Al Gore has plenty of other things to do and a paycheck to earn. On Tuesday, the star traveled to Berlin to promote his new action flick "Bullet Train" while the city experienced high temperatures. Pitt kept cool by wearing an all- linen look featuring a brown skirt, matching jacket and a salmon button-up shirt left half open. Fans took to Twitter to weigh in on Pitt's knee-skimming hemline, but the jury was out on whether the outfit "absolutely slayed" or should have come with a warning label as some Twitter users put it. The skirt even earned Pitt an eponymous tren...
