Facebook Changes Default Share Setting to Private

TIME から引用:

New Facebook users will start out with tighter privacy settings, Facebook announced Thursday in a post that laid out out several privacy-related updates. This reverses the social network’s 2009 decision to make the default setting “Public,” which allowed everyone on the Internet, not just individual users’ friends, to view users’ content.

Existing users will be offered a “privacy checkup,” a pop-up which reminds them of their current privacy settings and shows them how to select a specific audience before posting content.

We recognize that it is much worse for someone to accidentally share with everyone when they actually meant to share just with friends, compared with the reverse,” said the company in a post.

The company has previously been criticized by privacy advocates for making its settings too complicated, and is currently under scrutiny by European and U.S. privacy officials. Facebook previously settled privacy claims with the Federal Trade…

In what amounts to a substantial upset, Minnesota was chosen on Tuesday as the host of Super Bowl LII in 2018 over Indianapolis and perennial favorite New Orleans.

The main draw for the Minneapolis-St. Paul pitch: the Vikings’ new stadium, which is expected to open in time for the 2016 NFL season at a cost of close to $1 billion. Unlike this past year’s Super Bowl host, New York/New Jersey, which featured an open-air venue at The Meadowlands, Minnesota’s upcoming home will include a retractable roof — a must given the winter climate.

Oh no Yu didn’t: MLB errs by changing error to hit in Yu Darvish’s near-no-hitter

Yu Darvish's one-hitter is now a two-hitter thanks to an error on Alex Rios being changed to a hit. (Tony Gutierrez/AP)

Score one for historical revisionism: David Ortiz did indeed break up Yu Darvish’s bid for a no-hitter last Friday night, but not via his two-out, ninth-inning single. Instead, the ruling on the flyball that he hit with two outs in the seventh inning that landed untouched between rightfielder Alex Rios and second baseman Rougned Odor has been changed from an error on Rios to a hit for Ortiz.

Human after all: A closer look into Mike Trout’s May slump

Mike Trout is mired in a slump that's dropped his overall line to .270/.354/.513. (Laurence Kesterson/AP)

Mike Trout is hitting a mere .140/.235/.302 in 51 PA this month. (Laurence Kesterson/AP)

Bryce Harper is out for months, Jose Fernandez is down for the remainder of the season and now Mike Trout is slumping. Is this proof we can’t have nice things? Evidence of the dreaded Sports Illustrated coverjinx? One way or another, just as Trout is basking in the limelight of a homecoming with the Angels’ trip to Philadelphia — the closest team to his Millville, N.J., roots — he’s in the midst of the roughest stretch of his brief major league career.

LeBron James Already Has a Johnny Manziel Jersey

Extra Mustard - SI.com から引用:

Though LeBron James is a self-admitted Dallas Cowboys fan, even he can’t deny the enigma that is Johnny Manziel.

Just a day after the former Texas A&M quarterback was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the 26th overall pick, James was seen on the Miami Heat charter plane and in New York rocking the much in-demand jersey of Johnny Football.

The bromance between, James, Manziel, and Drake is approaching an all-time nauseating level.

As for the jersey itself, Manziel doesn’t officially have a number yet, so James’ jersey will only be a temporary solution until the Browns rookie is awarded his new digit.


Like a lot of Cowboys fans, LeBron not happy team passed on Johnny Manziel


Is he really an Ohio native?

ProBasketballTalk から引用:

Come on, the Dallas Cowboys have Tony Romo, why would they ever need another quarterback?

As Heisman winner Johnny Manziel fell down the NFL’s first-round draft board Thursday night, Dallas Cowboys fans started to get excited — Johnny Football playing in Texas? Finally an heir to Romo? Smart draft pick or not a lot of Cowboys fans wanted it.

LeBron James is an avid Cowboys fan and he wanted it, as you can see from the above tweets.

Instead the Cowboys went with Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin. A guy to keep to help protect…

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweeted on Tuesday that the Orioles plan to activate Manny Machado for Tuesday’s series opener against the Pirates.

Machado has yet to play this season after offseason surgery to repair a knee injury suffered last September. He experienced a setback this spring after originally being targeted for a return on Opening Day.

Machado performed well in three minor league rehab games this week, going 8-for-12 (.667) with four doubles and a triple.

The 21-year-old is coming off a productive season at the plate. He batted .283 with 14 home runs and 71 RBI and won a Gold Glove at third base.
