Tula Launches Social Media Campaign With Body Positivity Influencer Mik Zazon

Tula is continuing its mission of body positivity and empowerment through a new social media campaign.
The probiotic-based skin-care brand is launching a 30-day challenge to encourage followers to take small actions to improve their own self-confidence. Tula is continuing its relationship with body positivity influencer Mik Zazon for the campaign.
“I was actually a health and weight-loss coach and behind the scenes on social media, I was struggling with multiple eating disorders, depression and anxiety,” Zazon said. “It all came to the surface and I realized I couldn’t do it anymore. I dropped all of my sponsorships and had no income and I decided instead to take people on this journey of recovery for me, and Tula was one of the first brands to reach out to me during that whole process.”

I used to hear my acne scars speak to me when I would wear more revealing shirts.⁣ ⁣ Every time I would pass by someone my skin would say, “Mik, they are looking at you. They think you are disgusting. Cover me up. I want to hide.”⁣ ⁣ It’s taken a decade for me to fully embrace the skin I’m in.⁣

How Jeffrey Epstein Is Linked to Fashion, Media and President Trump

As friends, acquaintances and former business associates — including President Trump, who was once all three, and former President Clinton — rush to distance themselves from Jeffrey Epstein, who died in an apparent suicide on Aug. 10, more and more links between the fashion and media worlds and the convicted sex offender and disgraced billionaire keep coming to light, no doubt causing numerous public figures to brace themselves for potentially embarrassing disclosures along the lines of “Epstein was once seen with [Fill in the Blank].”
According to court documents released by the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York, Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, was charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors between 2002 and 2005 in New York and Florida. If convicted, he would have faced a maximum prison sentence of 45 years.
While information on Epstein’s business ventures and earnings are scant so far, the money manager and former Wall Street trader had many dealings within the fashion and media spaces, notably with Victoria’s Secret owner Leslie H. Wexner. Epstein managed Wexner’s finances for more than two decades, along with those

Social Media Backlash Ensues Against Real Estate Developer Stephen Ross

The social media backlash has been swift toward real estate developer Stephen Ross.
The developer behind Hudson Yards, Ross is facing criticism from celebrities and fashion designers over news that he is reportedly hosting a fundraiser for President Donald Trump at his Hamptons home on Friday. According to The Washington Post, tickets for the fundraiser range from $ 100,000 to $ 250,000.
Ross is also the chairman of real estate company, Related Cos., which owns SoulCycle and its parent company, Equinox, and is the owner of the Miami Dolphins. Many celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen, Sophia Bush and Billy Eichner, have taken to Twitter to express their outrage over Ross’ fundraiser, taking aim at his many companies.

Fashion designers have also joined in the outcry, including Prabal Gurung, who posted a three-part Instagram Story to call out Ross for supporting the president following the two mass shootings that took place in Texas and Ohio this past weekend, which many Democratic presidential candidates have claimed were caused by Trump’s racist rhetoric.

The Best Social Media Reactions to the ‘Cats’ Trailer

The “Cats” trailer is finally here, and the Internet isn’t too happy about it.
When it was announced that the beloved musical would be given the live-action treatment, musical theater lovers rejoiced. But many have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment — and downright terror — toward the film’s first trailer.

The trailer features a number of A-list actors and musicians, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Idris Elba and Dame Judi Dench, among others, who appear as felines with human-like faces and bodies. The film’s director, Tom Hooper — best known for directing films like “Les Misérables” and “The King’s Speech” — has called the technique “digital fur technology.”
Many commenters are poking fun at said technology, comparing the actors to other iterations of this anthropomorphism in film, including in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” where Emma Watson’s character, Hermione Granger, accidentally transforms into a cat, and Mike Myers’ take on “The Cat in the Hat.” Others have taken liberty with the trailer by adding in their own edits, like one user who cut in the song from Jordan Peele’s horror film, “Us,” over the “Cats” trailer.

The Wimbledon Moments that Caught Social Media by Storm

At Wimbledon, the people watching is just as exciting as following the action on the court — with much of it playing out on social media.
This year’s two-week championship saw a number of celebrity attendees — including appearances from members of the British royal family — who brought their fashion A-game to one of the biggest tennis matches of the year.
Wimbledon’s royal box — which requires a “smart casual” dress code — saw Prince William, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex make repeat appearances over the course of the championship. To cheer on close friend Serena Williams, the Duchess of Sussex sat outside of the royal box on Day Four of the tournament, dressed casually in a white blazer and jeans. She later joined Middleton and her sister, Pippa, on Day 12 of the tournament, where Markle wore a Givenchy dress shirt paired with a printed Hugo Boss skirt. Instead of attending the final day of the tournament, Markle joined Prince Harry at the U.K. premiere of “The Lion King,” where the couple met Beyoncé and Jay Z.

Inhumans Movie Once Set for Today, Social Media Laughs

Believe it or not, a Marvel Studios movie was supposed to come out today. At least, according to Marvel’s Phase 3 slate revealed by MCU mastermind Kevin Feige years ago that featured The Inhumans. The Marvel film that never was initially sported a November 2, 2018 release date, but four months later along came a Spider-Man movie deal between Sony and Marvel that saw Marvel change several release dates and the Inhumans movie moved to July 12, 2019. The movie was originally going to come out after what was once called “Avengers: Infinity War – Part II,” which later became Avengers: Endgame. But plans changed and Inhumans was instead adapted to a TV show on ABC — one that bombed and was canceled after a single season.

While Celine Dion and her high-fashion wardrobe stole the show, many celebrities had their fair share of memorable moments at the fall 2019 couture week, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Zendaya, Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra and Kiernan Shipka, among others. Take Christina Aguilera, who turned up at the Viktor & Rolf show in one of the viral meme-inspired dresses from the designers’ previous couture show — an oversize tulle dress that read “F–k this I’m going to Paris.”

Dazed Media Unveils Sustainability Platform, A Future World

OUR PLANET: Dazed Media is setting its sights on sustainability with a dedicated platform, A Future World, in partnership with the European Climate Foundation just in time for the Copenhagen Fashion Summit. The new platform, A Future World, will focus on science, technology and pop culture and feature interviews, films and discussions on sustainability.
“Climate change is finally a topic of conversation that’s at the top of our news feeds and around dinner tables, but most crucially, on our streets. This is a movement that has been driven by youth, a generation determined to pass on the planet to the children they haven’t yet had,” said Thomas Gorton, digital editor of Dazed Media.
The official platform will launch later this year but its first installment, which launched today, features an interview with Greta Thunberg, a teenage climate activist and Nobel Peace prize nominee, speaking about school strikes and protesting to combat climate change.
In the interview, Thunberg talks about her biggest environmental concerns. “Once we pass a certain point, there is no going back. We might have already passed that point and once we do, we set off an irreversible chain reaction which triggers events beyond human control. That’s very scary because we can’t

Teen Mom 2’s Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus Lock Lips in Steamy Social Media Post

Things are really heating up between Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus.

Over the weekend, the Teen Mom 2 lovebirds both shared a steamy photo of themselves locking lips on social media.

“King and Queen,” Marroquin wrote alongside the picture on Sunday, which featured the couple wearing color-coordinated outfits and kissing in front of a brick wall.

And on Saturday, DeJesus shared two other photos in addition to the snap, including one of Marroquin standing behind her with his arms around her waist. Letting the pictures speak for themselves, she captioned them with just a heart emoji.

In October, Marroquin told PEOPLE that he and DeJesus had “decided to make it official” after Teen Mom 2 reunited them for a reunion taping in Los Angeles.

“We are dating,” Marroquin said. “We’ve been friends for a while and we weren’t in a rush.”

The reality stars both have children from separate relationships. DeJesus, 23, has two daughters: 6-year-old daughter Nova with ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin, and 3-month-old daughter Stella with ex-boyfriend Luis Hernandez.

Marroquin shares 3-year-old son Lincoln with ex-wife Kailyn Lowry, who also stars on Teen Mom 2. He has a close relationship with his former-stepson, Isaac, from Lowry’s previous relationship with Jo Rivera.

RELATED VIDEO: Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars: Kailyn & Javi Feud over ‘Infidelity’

Since making things official, the two have frequently posted about each other on social media, with Marroquin flying to Florida with Lincoln and his former stepson, Isaac (from Lowry’s previous relationship to Jo Rivera), to spend time with DeJesus, her daughters and her sister Brittney at a water park.

But even though Marroquin is dating his ex-wife’s costar, it seems everything is fine between him and Lowry.

In an Instagram post in mid-October, Marroquin shared a sweet post of himself kissing his ex on the cheek. “Despite everything that happened between us I’m happy we are at a place where we can go to events..have a good time and be civil,” he wrote. “We’re doing a pretty good job raising these kids 🙌🏻 @kaillowry #oneteam.”

There’s still drama between Marroquin’s ex-wife and his new girlfriend, however.

Two weeks ago, during part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion, DeJesus said she didn’t think she and Lowry could ever be friends. “It’s not going to happen,” she said. “We tried today and it’s not working out.”

Indochino Partners With Canadian Media Company

Indochino, the Vancouver-based made-to-measure men’s brand, has a new partner.
The company has created what it is calling “a strategic partnership” with Postmedia, a Canadian media company representing more than 200 newspaper brands across Canada.
Under the terms of the deal, Postmedia has committed to invest more than 40 million Canadian dollars of media money in the brand over the next five years.
Postmedia will help Indochino grow its market share in Canada by promoting the company through print, digital and native advertising to its 13.4 million monthly unique digital visitors and 8.3 million weekly print readers in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and other emerging markets in Canada where Indochino has less of presence.
“We’re proud to be symbiotically aligned with Canada’s largest newspaper company, which provides credible sources of news via its digital and print network to two in three adults,” said Drew Green, Indochino’s chief executive officer.
“As part of our 2016-2020 plan, we’ve boldly sought out strategic alliances to help us achieve our business goals and this mutually beneficial partnership will no doubt have a profound impact on our growth in Canada.”
Green said the deal will serve to boost the brand’s marketing activities while lowering one of its largest expenses.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Says She Won’t Show Dogs on Social Media After a Stranger Called Animal Control Services

Kim Zolciak-Biermann is fighting back after someone reported that she was not taking care of her pets.

The Don’t Be Tardy star, 39, shared a series of videos on Snapchat explaining her story while focusing on a business card of an employee of the Lifeline Animal Project at Fulton County Animal Services.

“Apparently somebody thought it would be really cute to call the animal control center on my dogs today and say that they were not being taken care of,” she said. “I am utterly f—ing disgusted and appalled by the person that did this.”

Zolciak-Biermann continued by saying that her dogs are treated very well, pointing out that she recently spent $ 3,000 to take care of rescue puppies.

Due to the incident, the reality star said she would “no longer be sharing any part of my dogs and their life on my social media any longer.”

Reps for Zolciak-Biermann did not respond to a request for comment. The Lifeline Animal Project employee who visited her home could not be reached.

Earlier in the weekend, Zolciak-Biermann shared a video of her daughters bathing a puppy named Sage and another of her daughter playing with their dog Sinn (short for Sinatra).

 

In April, Zolciak-Biermann’s 4-year-old son Kash had a terrifying incident with a dog that sent him to the hospital and in danger of losing sight in his left eye. Since the encounter, Kim and her husband Kroy, 31, have slowly been reintroducing their six kids, Kash in particular, to more dogs to help them get over any fear of animals they might have developed after the attack.

“Kroy and I felt it was super important to continue to encourage Kash to be around animals,” she wrote in a May 28 Instagram post. “Kash is an absolute animal lover and I didnt/don’t want him to fear animals after all he has been through.”

She even shared a photo of Kash snuggling with a tame and tiny rescue puppy over the weekend, captioning the sweet photo: “How @kashbiermann has been spending the last 2 days!! extremely thankful @cheftraceybloom opened my eyes to rescuing puppies/dogs. Also thankful for the advice @iheartmiko gave me about reintroducing Kash to dogs sooner then later!!”

Rei Kawakubo Preview Breaks Media Record; Met Shop to Sell Limited-Edition Items

NEW YORK — Mistaking the 100-plus-person line outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday morning as one for museumgoers, a few out-of-towners found themselves out of luck, after a security guard explained the museum was closed to the public but open for a press preview.
More than 600 media types — an all-time high — turned out for the big reveal of The Costume Institute’s “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: The Art of the In-Between.” Patrick Li, Eugene Tong, Cecilia Dean, Simon Doonan and Thom Browne filed through the futuristic design, while photographers and camera crews huddled around curator in charge Andrew Bolton.

The Rolling Stones Pay Tribute To Chuck Berry With Touching Notes On Social Media

Following news of Chuck Berry’s death on Saturday, plenty of fellow musicians shared touching tributes to the rock ‘n’ roll legend on social media. Among them being The Rolling Stones, who considered Berry a huge influence on their own music. 

“The Rolling Stones are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Chuck Berry,” the band wrote in a statement on Facebook. “He was a true pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll and a massive influence on us. Chuck was not only a brilliant guitarist, singer and performer, but most importantly, he was a master craftsman as a songwriter. His songs will live forever.” 

The band’s lead singer, Mick Jagger, also shared a tribute of his own, writing, “I want to thank him for all the inspirational music he gave to us. He lit up our teenage years, and blew life into our dreams of being musicians and performers.” 

He concluded: “Chuck, you were amazing, and your music is engraved inside us forever.” 

Guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood also shared individual tributes on Twitter.

“’One of my big lights has gone out,’” Richards wrote, while Wood called Berry “my inspiration, a true character indeed.”

Americans in Paris Court Social Media Buzz

GOING COCO: The venue on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré for this season’s Americans in Paris showroom was of appropriate significance — Gabrielle Chanel was a former resident of the first-floor apartment.
Nine designers participated in the 12th round of the showcase, backed by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue. All were newcomers to the event this season.
“This is Coco Chanel’s old apartment, it’s just amazing,” enthused Beckett Fogg, one half of design duo Area.
The brand has seen a lot of excitement this week over its accessories after both Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid were spotted wearing its jewelry out and about in Paris. “The accessories have been really popular with the celebs,” said codesigner Piotrek Panszczyk. “It’s really been helping, as people have been recognizing them as they are walking through. It’s been a great opportunity for us.”
Laurence Chandler, one half of men’s “elevated skate” label Rochambeau, said the brand was also benefiting from showing during women’s collections in Paris, he said, and had dressed influencers such as Georgia Fowler and Jourdan Dunn for the occasion. “It’s been cool to dress women, we like the idea of women wearing our clothing,” he said.

Muslims and the New Media

Muslims and the New Media


Scholars from an extensive range of academic disciplines have focused on Islam in cyberspace and the media, but there are few historical studies that have outlined how Muslim ‘ulama’ have discussed and debated the introduction and impact of these new media. Muslims and the New Media explores how the introduction of the latest information and communication technologies are mirroring changes and developments within society, as well as the Middle East’s relationship to the West. Examining how reformist and conservative Muslim ‘ulama’ have discussed the printing press, photography, the broadcasting media (radio and television), the cinema, the telephone and the Internet, case studies provide a contextual background to the historical, social and cultural situations that have influenced theological discussions; focusing on how the ‘ulama’ have debated the ‘usefulness’ or ‘dangers’ of the information and communication media.

Mass Media, An Aging Population, and the Baby Boomers

Mass Media, An Aging Population, and the Baby Boomers


As the oldest members of the baby boomer generation head into their retirement years, this demographic shift is having a substantial influence on uses of mass media, as well as the images portrayed in these media. Mass Media, An Aging Population, and the Baby Boomers provides a comprehensive examination of the relationship between media and aging issues, addressing mass media theory and practice as it relates to older Americans. Reviewing current research on communication and gerontology, authors Michael Hilt and Jeremy Lipschultz focus on aging baby boomers and their experiences with television, radio, print media, entertainment, advertising and public relations, along with the Internet and new media. They draw from studies about health and sexuality to understand views of aging, and present a view of older people as important players in the political process. Hilt and Lipschultz conclude the volume by addressing trends and making predictions related to baby boomers and mass media. Providing a timely and insightful examination of the linkage between mass media and aging issues, this volume will prove a valuable resource for scholars and students in media and gerontology. It is intended for use in coursework addressing such topics as mass communication and society, media and aging, media and public opinion, sociology, and social gerontology.

Music, Electronic Media and Culture


Technology revolutionised the ways that music was produced in the twentieth century. As that century drew to a close and a new century begins a new revolution in roles is underway. The separate categories of composer, performer, distributor and listener are being challenged, while the sounds of the world itself become available for musical use. All kinds of sounds are now brought into the remit of composition, enabling the music of others to be sampled (or plundered), including that of unwitting musicians from nonwestern cultures. This sound world may appear contradictory stimulating and invigorating as well as exploitative and destructive. This book addresses some of the issues now posed by the brave new world of music produced with technology.

How to figure out which streaming media device to buy

How to figure out which streaming media device to buyPicking a streaming-media player to watch Netflix and Amazon on your TV may seem like a simple process in comparing features and prices, but it’s actually rather difficult. Some companies, like Amazon and Apple, run their own digital video stores, produce shows and sell streaming-media hardware, which can push them to restrict content in ways that might make economic sense for them, but will probably annoy you, the paying customer.

Thank You, Dishonest Media!

A yuge thank you to CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC, CBS, and NBC and all the dishonest media for giving me billions of dollars worth of free airtime to broadcast my Trump for President campaign. It was really nice of you to repeat my name so much (“repetition builds reputation,” as we marketers like to say).

This airtime was made even more valuable precisely because you played along with my plan and kept talking only about the crazy things I was saying without demanding my tax returns or offering voters any detailed analysis of my ties to Russia, debts to foreign countries, massive conflicts of interest, or how my policies would make things so much worse for 99% of the population.

Thanks, too, for not dwelling on what Mike Pence actually thinks of women and the gays. (People would have really freaked out!)

All this media coverage of how ridiculously unacceptable I was only reinforced my reputation as a “truth-teller” with my target audience, which I define as people who view “expertise,” “qualifications” and “minorities” with a healthy dose of suspicion!

People tell me I still lost the popular vote to a girl and got less votes than Mitt Romney, but that doesn’t matter. Right now I feel like the biggest winner ever! It’s a feeling I’ve only felt six times before, right before each of my bankruptcy filings.

I’d like to also thank the GOP, ALEC and the Koch Brothers for the multi-year investment you made in rigging the system to ensure the triumph of my will. Specifically, the passage of Citizens United, your unprecedented gerrymandering to ensure losing the popular vote wouldn’t cost Republicans control of the House in 2012 and, of course, the terrific new voter suppression laws that made all the difference this year in states from North Carolina to Wisconsin.

Finally, I’d like to thank all the voters who invested all of their hopes and dreams in me despite Little Marco’s warning I’m a con artist, Lying Ted’s claim I’m a pathological liar, and Speaker Ryan’s acknowledgment that I’m a textbook racist.

One of the hallmarks of the Trump brand is I’ve always been terrific at making people buy what I’m selling at least once. Usually, I make a big promise, collect the cash, and skip town as fast as possible. It worked with Trump Steaks, Trump Airlines, Trump Vodka, Trump Ice, Trump Magazine, Tour de Trump and Trump University. I’m just happy to know that even scamming so many war widows, single moms and seniors out of thousands of dollars at a fake University wasn’t enough to stop so many of you from voting for me. And this time, you’re stuck with me for four whole years!

Changing Media, Changing China

Changing Media, Changing China


Thirty years ago, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) made a fateful decision: to allow newspapers, magazines, television, and radio stations to compete in the marketplace instead of being financed exclusively by the government. The political and social implications of that decision are still unfolding as the Chinese government, media, and public adapt to the new information environment. Edited by Susan Shirk, one of America’s leading experts on contemporary China, this collection of essays brings together a who’s who of experts-Chinese and American-writing about all aspects of the changing media landscape in China. In detailed case studies, the authors describe how the media is reshaping itself from a propaganda mouthpiece into an agent of watchdog journalism, how politicians are reacting to increased scrutiny from the media, and how television, newspapers, magazines, and Web-based news sites navigate the cross-currents between the open marketplace and the CCP censors. China has over 360 million Internet users, more than any other country, and an astounding 162 million bloggers. The growth of Internet access has dramatically increased the information available, the variety and timeliness of the news, and its national and international reach. But China is still far from having a free press. As of 2008, the international NGO Freedom House ranked China 181 worst out of 195 countries in terms of press restrictions, and Chinese journalists have been aptly described as dancing in shackles. The recent controversy over China’s censorship of Google highlights the CCP’s deep ambivalence toward information freedom. Covering everything from the rise of business media and online public opinion polling to environmental journalism and the effect of media on foreign policy, Changing Media, Changing China reveals how the most populous nation on the planet is reacting to demands for real news.

Media Analyse (ma): Herausforderungen der Mediaforschung in der digitalen Medienwelt

Media Analyse (ma): Herausforderungen der Mediaforschung in der digitalen Medienwelt


Weltweit sind in ersten Quartal 2008 laut Nielsen Media Research die Werbeausgaben um 4 Prozent gestiegen, trotz der steigenden wirtschaftlichen Belastungen. Im Gegensatz zu Afrika und dem asiatisch-pazifischen Raum stagnierten allerdings die Ausgaben für Werbung in Europa. Im Bereich der Zeitschriften kann man sogar von einem leichten Rückgang sprechen. Trotzdem befinden sich die Ausgaben auf einem hohen Niveau. Diese Millionenbudgets gilt es effektiv für die Werbung einzusetzen. Die Entscheidung darüber, wie man dieses Geld einsetzt, ist von massiver wirtschaftlicher Tragweite. Um diese Entscheidung richtig treffen zu können, benötigen Werbetreibende detaillierte Informationen darüber, wie und wo sie am wirkungsvollsten ihre Zielgruppe erreichen können. Auf der anderen Seite besteht auch die Notwendigkeit der genaueren Analyse der Werbeleistung von Seiten der Werbeträger, also Fernsehen, Printmedien, Internet, Radio usw, um so genauere Informationen liefern zu können, wer welche Zielgruppe wie erreicht und wie hoch die Tausenderkontaktpreise entsprechend angesetzt werden können. Somit ist für beide Marktakteure- Werbetreibende und Werbeträger- von entscheidender Wichtigkeit genaue Daten über die Werbeleistung zu erhalten. Diese Daten kann die Media- Analyse liefern, die verschiedene Tranchen aller halber Jahre untersucht. Das Datenmaterial ist sehr umfangreich und lässt verschiedene Schlüsse für beide Seiten zu, um zum einen das Werbebudget so effektiv wie möglich einzusetzen und auf der anderen Seite die Werbeeinnahmen zu maximieren. Doch zunächst wird die Media- Analyse, die von der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media- Analyse e.V. (ag. ma) durchgeführt wird, genauer theoretisch betrachtet. Bevor die jeweiligen Erhebungen zu den Tranchen erläutert werden, soll die ag. ma als Träger der Media- Analyse vorgestellt werden. Nachdem die Bedeutung der Daten und Probleme bzw. Kritik der Media- Analyse dargelegt werden, wird einmal praktisch gezeigt, wie die Daten verwendet wer
