Shots Fired! Meryl Streep Calls Out Trump
Meryl Streep was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes last night. Instead of talking about her career during her acceptance speech she focused on an issue which broke “her heart.” While not mentioning Trump by name, she specifically was referencing an incident during the campaign when it appeared Trump was mocking a New York Times reporter (Serge Kovaleski), who has arthrogryposis, a disease which visibly limits the functioning of joints. The nation (based on social media) seemed divided on the issue on whether Streep was being inappropriate or brave. Trump tweeted: “Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes.” Trump alone might keep Jack Dorsey’s (CEO) Twitter afloat.

Google Making Museums Fun
Google is using Tango to collaborate with museums to show visitors a new reality. The Augmented Reality Tango can be used by visitors to see inside a sarcophagus, view missing parts of monuments, paint on limestone, play games, and engage in other interactive activities that teach visitors more on the subject. Visitors can request a Lenovo Phab 2 Pro at the front desk to use Tango on the artifacts, paints, and more. The Detroit Institute of Arts is the first museum to adopt Tango, but plenty are sure to provide this added visitor experience. (Source: The Verge)
