Seth Meyers slams Trump's weak reaction to racist rally chant
Seth Meyers is not having any of Trump's excuses. During a rally on Wednesday night, fans of the president were caught on camera chanting "send her back" about Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar — one of the four people Trump attacked in a barrage of racist tweets on Sunday. And when asked by a reporter why he didn't stop the chant, Trump claimed he "started speaking very quickly" — even though footage shows him pausing for a solid 12 seconds before the crowd tapers off. "That's not how you stop a chant," said Meyers on Thursday. "That's how you wait in line at the deli for them to call your number."

1Password Restores Free-to-Use Local Vault Option in Latest Version of iOS App
1Password has restored the option for customers who originally purchased its iOS app to create a local vault during setup, after users queued up online to voice their frustrations that the option was silently removed in an update. The Canadian password management service caused a string of complaints on Reddit and elsewhere earlier this month when a v7.3.3 update to the 1Password iOS app removed the free-to-use local vault option from the app setup process without alerting users to the change. Withdrawing the option meant that users who reinstalled the iOS app for whatever reason could no longer configure a new local vault on their device, even if they'd paid an upfront fee for the app or bought the Pro in-app purchase in the past for exactly this purpose. The change meant that users looking to maintain local vaults on iPhone or iPad had to either pay for a 1Password membership, or sync their iOS device with a standalone vault created by 1Password for Mac or 1Password Windows – both of which require a subscription. The good news is that 1Password has listened to user feedback, and the latest update, v7.3.4, restores the ability to create standalone vaults from setup to customers who had previously purchased 1Password 4 for iOS or the Pro Features in-app purchase. However, for new users at least, there's no longer any way to use the password management service without subscribing to a paid plan.Tag: 1PasswordThis article, "1Password Restores Free-to-Use Local Vault Option in Latest Version of iOS App" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums

Johnny Clegg obituary
Singer-songwriter who used music to defy apartheid in South AfricaJohnny Clegg, who has died of cancer aged 66, was a white singer-songwriter who became a national hero in South Africa by using music to defy the apartheid-era segregation laws. He challenged the authorities by forming mixed-race bands, performing to both black and white audiences, and mixing Zulu influences into songs that brought him international success. Known as the “white Zulu” or umlungu omnyama (“the black white person”), he spoke fluent Zulu and was an energetic and skilful exponent of Zulu dance.He was best known for the poignant, stirring 1987 anthem Asimbonanga (We have not seen him), a tribute to Nelson Mandela, who was then still in jail, and to other key figures of the anti-apartheid struggle. Twelve years later, soon after he stepped down as president, Mandela joined Clegg on stage in Frankfurt as he was performing the song, in one of the most emotional scenes in political pop history.

Billy Eichner got banned from Tinder for violating the terms of use
It might seem like celebrities have a gilded passage in life, but turns out even they're not immune to the odd mishap. Like getting banned from apps.  It happen to Lion King star Billy Eichner. He told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday he was suddenly banned from Tinder.  "You're laughing but I am going to die alone," he told the audience, who appeared to find the whole thing hilarious.  "I've been on Tinder for like seven years and I'm very nice. I don't do anything naughty or weird, I'm a normal person," he clarified.  "They didn't give me an explanation, they just said you violated the terms of use," Eichner explained. "And I said, I've been single for seven years, you violated the terms of use. I didn't violate anything!" He suspects that the issue arose from someone thinking his profile was fake.  Read more...More about Tinder, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy Kimmel, Billy Eichner, and Culture

Ilya Kaminsky: ‘Deaf culture is such a beautiful thing’
Until his family migrated to the US when he was 16, the Ukrainian-born poet lived without sound. He discusses his family’s persecution and his first collection in a decadeIlya Kaminsky has only published two poetry collections in 15 years, but his second, Deaf Republic, has been hailed as “a contemporary epic”, “a perfectly extraordinary book” from a poet described by the writer Garth Greenwell as “the most brilliant of his generation, one of the world’s few geniuses”. The man who has attracted all this hyperbole has a wraparound smile, and responds to a photographer’s demand to look more animated by reciting poetry in Russian and English. “Here is some Mandelstam,” he says. “Now I am going to give you some Emily Dickinson.” His speech drags slightly and he is apologetic about his accent: “After all this time, it should really be better,” he says, “but I only hear what the hearing aids give me.” For Kaminsky is hard of hearing – so, if you count sign language alongside Russian and Ukrainian, he is speaking in his fourth language.Deaf Republic is an investigation into “what happens to language in a time of crisis, how we carry on and how we try to remain human,” he explains. “It’s something I’m trying to find out in my book and in my life.” In just under 60 lyric poems, some only two lines long, it tells the story of a fictional town whose inhabitants react to the murder of a deaf child by shutting their ears. Little Petya’s crime is to spit at an army sergeant who has arrived to break up a public gathering in a time of martial law. “Deafness passes through us like a police whistle,” say the townspeople of Vasenka, who are described by the author as “the ‘we’ who tell the story”.

Big Little Lies: has season two really been a screaming great flop?
Fuelled by reports about behind-the-scenes turmoil, armchair experts have torn into the returning HBO drama. But is it really as bad as people say?It is a truth universally acknowledged that – as reliably as Renata Klein sets off any metal detector she walks through in the HBO series Big Little Lies – most modern-day fans will ruin the experience of watching a hit TV programme. We can’t help it; we worry away at imperfect character arcs or narrative misfires until the very fabric of the show comes apart in our hands.The more the first season of a show delivers, the more the armchair commentariat chews through any subsequent offerings, like moths working through cashmere. We saw it most overtly with the final season of Game of Thrones which – while admittedly far from perfect – attracted the sort of furore normally reserved for tax-dodgers or cold callers. Later, the actors who had worked on the flagship HBO show revealed that the experience of seeing the show’s final season ripped apart online had been deeply hurtful. Continue reading...
