In her first extended television news interview since the news of her alleged 2006 affair with Donald Trump emerged, adult film actress Stormy Daniels declined to discuss whether she had evidence of the affair and said that she was threatened to stay silent about it.

Risking hefty fines for violating a $130,000 hush agreement, Daniels detailed what she said was the only time she and Trump had sex — saying she spanked Trump with a magazine and that Trump had compared her to his daughter Ivanka.

She also said she was threatened in Las Vegas in 2011 after attempting to sell her story of the alleged affair.
The “60 Minutes” interview with Anderson Cooper is the most detailed televised account Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has so far offered of the affair she says she had with Trump. She also said Trump told her he and wife Melania, who had just given birth to their son, Barron, slept in separate rooms.

Slacktivism is over. The #NeverAgain movement is about what’s next:

It would be nice to think we could change the world with the click of a button.

But if that was all it took, thousands of people wouldn’t have flooded the streets of cities around the country this weekend to call for gun law reform. They wouldn’t have crowded buses andcrafted signs and yelled at the top of their lungs and allowed strangers to crash at their housesand squeezed their bodies next to thousands of other bodies in hopes that their collective mass could finally tip the scales of change.
They wouldn’t have shown up at all.
As the internet has reinvented the way we socialize and express ourselves, American activism has struggled to stay effective. Why march when you can share a Facebook post? After all, it’s easier to discuss your opinions online or sign a virtual petition than it is to stand in line for the voting booth or sit through a town hall meeting.

A day after March for Our Lives, Pope urges youth to speak out:

A day after hundreds of thousands of people protested gun violence at March for Our Lives events in the US and around the globe, Pope Francis called on the world’s youth to continue speaking out and standing up.

“Dear young people, you have it in you to shout,” the Pope said in his Palm Sunday address at St. Peter’s Square in Rome.

Palm Sunday — celebrated on the Sunday before Easter— is commemorated by Christians as the day Jesus entered Jerusalem in the week of his crucifixion, when palm leaves were strewn in his path. Noting that this Palm Sunday coincides with World Youth Day, the pontiff used the opportunity to compare youth to Jesus’s followers, who were scorned by his detractors.

Fed up with Facebook? Here’s how to protect your data:

Is it time to delete your Facebook account?

That’s the question many of its users are asking in light of revelations that data firm Cambridge Analytica accessed and improperly stored information from millions of users.

The hashtag #DeleteFacebook was trending on Twitter in wake of the news. WhatsApp cofounder Brian Acton tweeted “it is time” to delete Facebook. (His comment is particularly noteworthy because Facebook bought WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014).

“If you’re angry about what Facebook has done with our data then just #deletefacebook,” wroteanother user on Twitter. “Remember we aren’t the customers we are the product.”

While deleting Facebook seems like an obvious option, there are other things you can do to protect your information.
