Instagram is hiding likes and view count for public viewing

Instagram announced yesterday that they are running a test in a few countries which hides the likes and views (in case of videos) count for public viewing. You will be able to see the likes and views on your own posts, but other people will not.

Assumption is that if the test is successful, it will be implemented worldwide.

The View: John Hickenlooper, Hot Topics, Summer Reading List

John Hickenlooper Talks Campaign




Hickenlooper (H.) was previously a geologist, fmr Mayor of Denver, 2-Term Governor of Colorado. Summary of convo [Spoiler (click to open)]
They start off asking H. about hot topics. He says racist statements shouldn’t ever go unchecked. Talks local politics. Talks his career evolution, he’d never run for anything until age 49, you keep at it if it’s something you believe in. He believes he’s actually done at an exec level (city-Mayor, state-Governor), what (most of) the other candidates only talk about in theory. Touts his record on nearly universal healthcare, broadband access, universal background checks for gun purchases, CO is no.1 economy in the country the last 3 years (source US News & World Report), top 2-3 Rural economies.

Ana brings up new staff, debates, he’s on white-night (July 30). Brings up Amy Klobuchar jibe from previous debate. Lol it wasn’t at H., it was at Gov. Inslee bloop. Talks bipartisan work to improve healthcare. H. doesn’t think about bigger or smaller govt, but a govt that works where and how it needs to. Healthcare is a right not a privilege. Talks economy vs healthcare costs and education. Mam brings up socialism blah blah. He was boo’d loudly at previous event when he said beating Tr/mp is not with socialism. (he means the labeling, which isn’t actually socialism). He calls himself a pragmatic progressive. Gives social security as an example that’s a social program, but not socialism. Joy says only Bernie calls himself socialist, whereas everyone else classifies themselves as liberal.

Sunny does speed round. Education = reduce interest rate, give more ways to work it off, what about those who don’t want 4-year degree-they need support for how they will succeed. Green New Deal = feels it’s a distraction by claiming it will guarantee a federal job for everyone who wants one (it won't), believes the focus should be on climate change (whether it’s private or public sector). Reparations = slavery is nagging shame of country, acknowledge, own it, apology should come from WH, he supports the bill to research impacts. De-criminalize border crossing = doesn’t believe in open borders, no one does, wants comprehensive plan because they're open jobs need to be filled. Mam brings up flag switch by protestors who took down US flag and put up MX flag. He front ends with a lot of words about military (Air Force Academy plus other bases in CO), and how hurtful it was, how the US flag should be respected, but ends with he supports freedom of speech.

Shazam star Asher Angel auditioned for Prince Eric in 'The Little Mermaid' live-action film

Shazam's star Asher Angel (16) admitted he auditioned for the role of Prince Eric in Disney's new adaptation of "The Little Mermaid". He confirmed he screen tested with Halle Bailey (19), who will play Ariel in the film. He also mentioned he started doing musical theater and played Flounder when he was younger.

Harry Styles, the frontrunner for the role, is 25.


He seems like a cute kid and Halle can pass for a 16 year old, she looks really young, but I know people are expecting a much older looking Eric (just by looking at the fancasts and the frontrunner).

The Real: “Are people who love reading books a dying breed?”
