Ben & Jerry’s Share Origins Of Phish Food On 20th Anniversary [Watch]

first_imgBen & Jerry’s came out with their famed “Phish Food” ice cream 20 years ago today. The two business owners, Ben and Jerry, considered themselves “lucky to be associated” with the band, their fans, and the culture that comes along with Phish, even joining them on stage in 1996 at Clifford Ball. The history of the ice cream brand is pretty unique, and the story is told in this newly released video.The ice cream company is the only time that Phish has given their name to a product, drummer Jon Fishman explains in the video interview. They decided to do so as an alternative way to raise funds that could be donated to charity. In 1997, Phish established The WaterWheel Foundation with royalties of Phish Food.The WaterWheel Foundation chooses non-profits from a large sphere of needs including social services, primarily those benefitting women and children; environmental, with a focus on clean water and land conservation with public access; as well as food banks, urban gardening and the like. Thanks to the generosity of the fans, since its creation WaterWheel’s Touring Division has donated over $1,000,000 to more than 425 groups.Watch the full video below:last_img read more

Rockets ‘have the team to beat’ next season, Austin Rivers says

Austin Rivers is confident in the Rockets.Houston re-signed the 26-year-old guard to a two-year contract, reportedly worth the veterans’ minimum, earlier this week. Rivers told ESPN he had offers elsewhere for more money but returned to the Rockets because he believes they have a chance to win a championship. The Rockets were at the center of controversy last month when a report surfaced saying the relationship between star James Harden and Chris Paul was “unsalvageable.” Rivers, however, said he didn’t see any issues.”I know nothing about any of that. I don’t know where that’s coming from,” Rivers said during an interview with TMZ in June. “A lot of fantasy tales being told right now. … It’s definitely not true. I didn’t see any issues between any of them. It’s just made up news, fake news like most of the stuff you see on these Instagram pages.”The Rockets’ top target this summer was Jimmy Butler, according to multiple reports. But, they missed out on him when the wing was sent to the Heat in a sign-and-trade. “Now that the league is wide open, I just saw an opportunity,” Rivers said. “You can’t really put a price on happiness. The goal was to come back to Houston all along. I think we have the team to beat.”Austin Rivers had offers in $5.7M midlevel range but took the vet minimum from Rockets. “Now that the league is wide open, I just saw an opportunity.

Social Media Outlets Split Over How to Handle President Trump’s Posts

first_imgDespite recently issuing an executive order threatening legal penalties for social media platforms, President Trump’s fight with Twitter continued last week, after the social media platform removed a campaign video tribute to George Floyd, citing copyright infringements.The incident came during a week when Twitter flagged several of the commander-in-chief’s tweets for allegedly violating its terms of use, a move that Trump and his campaign called “censorship.”The video that was removed by Twitter included a compilation of images of demonstrations, riots and photos of police and protesters over an audio track of the president calling for unity following the killing of George Floyd.Twitter explained its decision in a statement, saying, “Per our copyright policy, we respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives.”The video is still posted on Facebook and YouTube, marking a stark difference in how platforms are handling the president’s posts.Last Wednesday, Snap Inc. announced it would stop promoting Trump’s account in Snapchat’s “Discover” category, a function that allows users to explore new content. The company said it would “not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover.”Soon thereafter, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale accused Snapchat of “trying to rig the 2020 election” and “actively engaging in voter suppression” by refusing to promote his account. “If you’re a conservative, they do not want to hear from you, they do not want you to vote. They view you as a deplorable and they do not want you to exist on their platform,” Parscale of Snap’s leadership.Courtesy: Trump 2020 CampaignSnapchat’s decision followed the president’s social media messages messages last week referring to violent protesters as “thugs,” and threatening to unleash “vicious dogs” and “ominous weapons” on unruly demonstrations.Twitter placed a warning on one of those statements about “thugs,” saying the president’s tweet violated the company’s rules on “glorifying violence.” Republican lawmakers filed a resolution condemning Twitter’s alleged “partisan censorship.”Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey added the fact-check “does not make us an ‘arbiter of truth.’” He said the warning was meant to provide additional information to the public, and to let people “judge for themselves.”One again, the statements that were contested by Twitter and then deemed inflammatory by Snapchat went unchecked on Facebook. However, the platform did not completely remove the tweet, saying it “may be in the public’s interest” to make it accessible.In addition, Twitter put a fact-check label on another Trump tweet, in which he claimed the use of mail-in ballots would cause widespread fraud. Trump responded to the fact-check action, saying it was equivalent to  election interference.center_img Last year, Twitter announced that it would no longer host political ads.On the other hand, Facebook decided to keep them, and said it would not fact-check such content.Facebook employees quickly denounced that decision, accusing Zuckerberg of allowing the president to “weaponize” the platform.Last week, Zuckerberg’s reluctance to act on Trump’s comments about George Floyd protests led to hundreds of the company’s employees staging a virtual walkout.Zuckerberg later explained, “[W]e read it as a warning about state action, and we think people need to know if the government is planning to deploy force,” he wrote.Two weeks ago, President Trump signed an executive order threatening social media companies who he claimed engage in “online censorship.”The main part of the executive order threatens to remove internet companies’ legal liability under Section 230 of the Federal Communications Decency Act if they engage in “censorship” or deceive the public about being an “open forum for debate.”Both Twitter and Facebook have repeatedly argued that free speech is a key part of their platforms, while adding standards in an effort to minimize violent content, explicit content and harassment, sometimes at the government’s request.Under current law, companies like Facebook and Twitter cannot be sued for the content posted by its users.Trump’s executive order seeks to treat social media companies as “publishers” instead of as neutral internet platforms, thereby exposing them to liability for what users communicate.last_img read more
