Google finally takes a stance on political ads with microtargeting restrictions
Google has become the latest company to reconsider its approach to political ads. The internet giant has announced a crack down on political ads that limits advertisers from targeting ads based on voters’ political leanings or public voter records. Outlining its new approach to microtargeting of election ads, the company said it’s limiting ad targeting to voters based on age, gender, and general location at the zip code level. While ads based on an individual’s specific location or those with false claims will no longer be allowed, contextual targeting — i.e. serving ads to people based on their reading or… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Google

Fresh heirs: how Kamasi Washington gave jazz back to the kids
He rewrote the jazz rulebook and brought a genre once thought dead to a new generation of music fansThe decade in music: how Sunn O))) made metal for the massesLeimert Park in the early 90s was a unique place to be. South Central LA: the birthplace of west-coast hip-hop, jam centre for the now middle-aged instrumentalists of spiritual jazz, historical home to Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald, the outskirts of so-called Black Beverly Hills. An area also recently infamous for its street crime and gang affiliations, it was here that young saxophonist Kamasi Washington first became versed in jazz.At the age of 11, he was taken by his jazz musician father Rickey to see acts in the many clubs dotted around the area’s backstreets: artists such as saxophonist Pharoah Sanders at the 100-capacity World Stage club and pianist Horace Tapscott, who would perform with his Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. Tapscott’s work was particularly influential for Washington. He viewed the music he played not as spiritual jazz, nor even jazz, but simply “black music”, and pioneered the use of spoken-word artists who would chant sociopolitically charged lyrics over his compositions. On Why Don’t You Listen?, vocalist Dwight Trible lists jazz musicians from Billie Holiday to Duke Ellington to Dizzy Gillespie, interspersed with the titular refrain. Tapscott felt his work had a responsibility to its history and an ultimate emphasis on imparting this culture to younger generations. In his hands, this lineage would never die. Continue reading...

A secretive $120 billion hedge fund has bested Warren Buffett again and again. These are its 10 biggest holdings.
Chip Somodevilla / Getty A secretive $120 billion hedge fund founded by a Cold War codebreaker has vastly outperformed Warren Buffett over the past three decades. A dollar invested in Renaissance Technologies' flagship Medallion fund in 1988 would reportedly be worth $27,000 net of fees in 2018, dwarfing a $107 return from Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway over the same period. Scroll down to see Renaissance's 10 biggest holdings. View Business Insider's homepage for more stories. A secretive $120 billion hedge fund, founded by a Cold War codebreaker and math professor, vastly outperformed Warren Buffett over the past 30 years. Renaissance Technologies, which was created by Jim Simons, counts Chipotle and Facebook among its largest investments. It recorded an annualized, post-fee return of 39% at its flagship Medallion fund between 1988 and 2018, according to "The Man Who Solved The Market: How Jim Simons launched the Quant Revolution," a new book by Greg Zuckerman. The 39% gain — 66% before fees — trumps returns of about 16% at Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and 10% from the S&P 500 over the same period. Medallion's remarkable performance means a dollar invested in the fund in 1988 would have grown to about $27,000 net of fees by the end of 2018, dwarfing a $107 return from Berkshire Hathaway and a $20 total return from the benchmark index. While the Medallion fund is restricted to Renaissance employees, the hedge fund's remarkable track record means its trading patterns are worth noting. Its 10 biggest investments, based on a SEC filing for the quarter ended 30 September, are listed below.1. Bristol-Myers Squibb Reuters Renaissance's biggest holding is its $1.66 billion stake in Bristol-Myers Squibb, a pharmaceuticals giant that makes medicines to treat cancer, HIV/AIDS, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other ailments. Federal regulators approved the company's proposed $74 billion takeover of biotech firm Celgene this month. 2. Chipotle Mexican Grill Reuters Renaissance has a $1.61 billion stake in Chipotle Mexican Grill. The fast-casual Mexican restaurant chain, which has more than 2,500 outlets, has largely recovered from a series of health scares a few years ago. 3. Verisign Richard Drew/AP Simons and his team have a $1.56 billion stake in Verisign, a network infrastructure group that operates the registry for domains including .com and .net.

Heimat Is a Space in Time review – epic journey into Germany's dark past
Thomas Heise’s four-hour documentary draws on the journals of his own family to construct a powerful, agonising historyThe 63-year-old German film-maker and dramatist Thomas Heise has created what may possibly come to be seen as his masterpiece. I was sometimes captivated but often frustrated by this epic essay-film, a meditation on Germany and his own family history that is stark, fierce, austerely cerebral and almost four hours long.Using letters and journals from his parents and grandparents (his father was the philosopher and academic Wolfgang Heise, his grandfather the literary critic and teacher Wilhelm Heise), he recounts an agonised story of his own Jewish background, and his forebears’ experience of antisemitism in the Nazi era and then later a queasily similar pattern of bullying from the Communist party authorities in East Germany.

All you want for Christmas, the high street can deliver
As fairy lights and carols provide the backdrop to your hunt for the perfect gift, Sophie Benson tells us why it’s the most wonderful time of the year to embrace your local high streetWhen the clocks go back and the afternoons begin to melt into night earlier and earlier, a comforting memory always comes back to me: it’s a late-night shopping Thursday and I’m sitting in a cafe, its walls lined with yellowing newspaper, munching on a croissant with my dad as we both warm up after spending a couple of hours wandering the fairy-lit high street in search of Christmas gifts.What did I buy on that outing? I honestly can’t remember, but it’s the experience that stays with me; bundling up in mittens, hat and scarf, walking down damp cobbled streets, the Christmas lights reflected in the puddles between them, and meandering in and out of shops without any real gift in mind, just the hope that the right thing was sitting on a shelf waiting to be found.

Cut from the same cloth: the brothers following in their family footsteps
After growing up with their father’s high street photography studio, brothers Mahmut and Yalcin Coban felt a sense of family from having a presence on their local high street. Rosie Mullender visits their clothing storeOn the wall of Life in Paradigm is a photograph of brothers Mahmut and Yalcin. It’s 1998, and they’re just nine and 12 years old, proudly standing outside their father’s photography store. Beside it is another picture of the brothers as adults, taken outside the same store, where the pair now sell menswear on the high street in Stoke Newington, east London.“Dad was a wedding photographer, and when he no longer needed his store we converted it into a retail space and design studio, keeping his original signage,” Mahmut explains. “People have seen us around the area since we were little kids, and now we’ve rebranded the shop and carried it on. That sense of family is something I love about the high street.” Continue reading...

Watching RuPaul taught me that drag isn’t just for queens | Alice O’Keeffe
We all wear masks, but few take such joy in it as the contestants on Drag Race. We should take a leaf out of their bookFirst, a confession: I have only recently woken up to the joy of drag. I know, I know, more fool me. But as a straight female who struggles to find matching socks to put on in the morning – let alone attach a false eyelash – the wigs, nails and makeup never felt particularly relevant to my life. When I think about femininity at all, it tends to be in terms of the less glamorous stuff. You know: childbirth, the pay gap, workplace discrimination. That kind of thing. Related: ‘I love drag.

Dominion by Tom Holland review – the legacy of Christianity
An absorbing survey of Christianity’s subversive origins and enduring influence is filled with vivid portraits, gruesome deaths and moral debatesTom Holland’s Dominion recounts the history and impact of Christianity from the crucifixion of Jesus to the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love”. He describes crucifixion as one of the most terrible deaths one can suffer, which must be true in general but if Jesus really did only spend six hours on the cross, as the New Testament reports, he was luckier than most victims, who thrashed around for days. If you really have to be nailed to a cross, the best thing to do is lose a lot of blood beforehand, so by scourging Jesus the Romans unwittingly helped him on his way.Holland might also have pointed out that the ancient Romans reserved crucifixion mostly for political rebels. Jesus may not have been a Lenin, but it might have suited the Jewish leaders to persuade Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, that he was. He would certainly have knocked around with Zealots, the anticolonial revolutionaries of the day. A few of his disciples were probably paid-up members of the group, as (probably) were the two so-called thieves between whom he hung on the cross. Pilate wouldn’t have needed much convincing to reach for the hammer and nails. Contrary to the gospels’ portrait of him as a kind of Guardian-reading liberal, reluctant to use his power and bemusedly in search of truth, the historical Pilate was a moral monster who would have crucified his own grandmother, and who was finally dismissed from the imperial service for corruption.

Queen & Slim review – stylish lovers on the run drama is hit and miss
A first date goes horribly wrong in a visually arresting romance, starring a charismatic Daniel Kaluuya, that can’t quite make it to the finish line There’s something seductively potent about the slick yet artful packaging of Queen & Slim, a film arriving with all the confidence of a self-appointed classic. There’s the stylised marketing, the hip, star-packed soundtrack (Lauryn Hill singing again!), the Beyoncé-approved first-time director, the in-demand lead actor post-Oscar nomination, the Emmy-winning writer turned mogul and the logline that’s both tantalising and timely. It also remains rare, and refreshing, to see a studio-backed film boasting a wealth of black talent telling a black story and given a prime Thanksgiving release date, aiming for both box office and awards glory.

Home alarm systems: how can I improve my security?

Unfortunately, due to Grenfell, our block is being emptied for refurbishment. I don’t know what type of property I will be offered, but I will have to provide my own home security system. Cost is not a major issue, because I will get a disturbance grant for the enforced move. But, as a pensioner, I wouldn’t like to be saddled with a high monthly premium for monitoring. Any suggestions would be very welcome. PeterTechnology companies are selling a lot of new gadgets to increase home security, including smart locks, motion detectors, window sensors and digital cameras.

Rates are higher here in central London, but I was happy to pay the extra because it’s near my home and I wanted to leave early for a family day trip.

Eventually, staff from another rental firm told me that it had closed down weeks previously and advised me to call the nearest Alamo office.
