Facebook and Instagram took measures to ban Min. Louis Farrakhan from its social media services, lumping him with a pair of Right-Wing extremists who also were banned. Joining Farrakhan on the outs with FB and IG are Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos.
Facebook Thursday banned from its flagship social network and its subsidiary Instagram the Infowars site and its leader Alex Jones, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, saying their presence on the sites violated its policies against dangerous individuals and organizations.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
Facebook last August cited violations of community standards in removing pages belonging to Jones and Infowars, notorious for peddling unfounded conspiracy theories. The action came amid a flurry of suspensions and content take-downs for Jones and Infowars, which were also booted from Google-owned YouTube, Twitter and other platforms.
The outlet adds that the services also banned Infowars contributor and “New Right” advocate Paul Joseph Watson, and right-wing activist Laura Loomer.
In 2018, Facebook removed a video of Farrakhan referring to Jews as “termites.”

After the raw material is cut into shape using a CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. Warby also uses stainless steel and titanium for metal-framed glasses, because of their high strength-to-weight ratio.
Then they custom-cut and polish the edges of your lenses, all of which are treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. Warby Parker’s impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays. Lenses come standard with non-prescription glasses, but prescription lenses with all these features are also available (up to $ 120 extra). Once you choose your frames, simply upload an image of your eyeglasses prescription to your order (snap a photo or scan it in) and submit your doctor’s contact information. If you don’t happen to have your prescription handy, you can just send it to Warby Parker later.
I’ve Never Ordered Glasses Online. Help!
Online glasses have exploded in popularity over the last few years, and much of that is due to Warby Parker. The company was one of the pioneers of the online eyeglass market. Warby Parker makes the selection process simple by offering an excellent set of guidelines on how to choose the right glasses for you. Basically, there are five main rules to follow when buying new glasses:
Your pupils should be near the center of the lens
The lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face
Your eyebrows should not be inside the glasses; let ’em fly!
When you smile, your cheeks shouldn’t push the frames up
The frames shouldn’t slide down your nose
If you receive your frames and you love them but they don’t fit quite right, Warby Parker will fix the following issues at any of its retail locations, free:
The frames are too tight or loose behind your ears
The temples are too long or too short
The temples are too tight or loose at the side of your face
The frames are crooked or slide down your face
And if you’re not close to a Warby Parker location, most optical shops will make minor adjustments for free or a small fee. If they do charge you, WP will reimburse you up to $ 50 for a single adjustment within 30 days of purchase. Just email them the bill.
So if you still need to pick out a new visage for summer, head over to Warby Parker today and check out their huge selection of sunglasses. It’s a lot easier than you think. We’ve put together a selection of nine great sunglasses from Warby Parker below.

Amber Slooten, Amsterdam Fashion Institute (Netherlands)
Amber Slooten graduated from AMFI in 2016 with a minor in Hypercraft, the school’s virtual design section, which was launched 10 years ago. During a gap year spent at MediaLab, a division of the Amsterdam University of Applied Science, she discovered a virtual design software named CLO3D: alongside game designers, interior designers and fashion branders, Slooten created a virtual reality fashion show named SecondSight, to be watched on mobile phones using 3-D glasses.
The project lead her to reconsider her design practice at AMFI. “We were creating so many clothes, I was forever dragging all these different collections on my bike for each project, and when the project was over they would just sit in my closet,” remembered Slooten. The student pushed her teachers to allow her to present an entirely digital graduate collection, projected via holographic layers onto a dancer, and ended up teaching a course helping students to use the CLO3D software. Since Slooten’s digital project, a number of other students were able to graduate without producing a physical collection of clothes, effectively changing the fashion school’s assessment methods.
Amber Slooten’s graduate collection at AMFI was presented in holographic form.

While the masses still grieve for Nipsey Hussle some good news has come from this tragedy. The gentleman who was also hit in the shooting has been given his freedom back.
As reported by Page Six Kerry Lathan has been released from a detention center in California on Saturday, April 20.
The Los Angle native witnessed the assassination of the “Racks In The Middle” rapper on March 31 where he too took a bullet to his back. Upon his release from the hospital, he was promptly put into police custody. As a felon who served 25 years for murder being with a known gang member was in direct violation of his parole terms.
Luckily the legal system was able to apply common sense to his situation. His lawyer Lauren Noriega claimed that the 56-year-old was at the scene by chance. “He wasn’t there to propose any business to Nipsey. He had no idea that Nipsey would be there” Noriega explained. Previous reports alleged Nipsey was meeting him to give him free clothes.
Lathan suffered a stroke while in custody and still has the bullet lodged in his back. His representative said he started crying when was told he would be let go.

This show season, for the first time, I was ashamed to work in fashion because fashion is becoming a dirty word. And the revolution is just beginning.
Last week, Extinction Rebellion, the activist group that has shut bridges and poured buckets of fake blood outside Downing Street, parked a giant pink boat in London’s Oxford Circus blocking the flow of commerce in one of most heavily trafficked shopping areas in the world. At the same time, members were protesting Shell Oil and fracking, they were staging a guerrilla-style runway show to highlight the fashion industry’s negative impact on the environment. That’s sobering.
Environmental campaign group Extinction Rebellion held a fashion show in London’s Oxford Circus.
I first became aware of Extinction Rebellion during London Fashion Week. I was crossing the Thames in a ride share (at least I had that going for me) when we were stopped in traffic by the group. Its members had been protesting outside runway shows throughout the day, starting with Victoria Beckham and ending with Burberry. Escorted by police, they carried signs that read “Climate Emergency” and “This is Not a Drill.” My Uber driver rolled down his window to take a pink flyer:

You haven’t worn a Polo like this before: Today, Ralph Lauren is launching an all-new version of its iconic Polo shirt made entirely from recycled materials and dyed through an innovative process that uses no water. It’s called the Earth Polo, and it represents a fusion of Ralph Lauren’s heritage aesthetic with the company’s larger commitment to sustainability. It’s all a part of the fashion retailer’s bold plan to shrink the ecological impact of its apparel.
“Ralph Lauren will commit to removing at least 170 million bottles from landfills and oceans by 2025,” David Lauren, Ralph Lauren’s chief innovation officer, said in a press release. “Plastic waste is a major issue threatening the environment—we want to be part of the solution.”
The fashion industry has a notoriously large carbon footprint, but the Earth Polo uses two innovative techniques to combat the harmful ecological effects of clothing production. First, the shirt is made from thread derived entirely from plastic bottles, and each shirt contains about 12 bottles’ worth of recycled plastic on average. In addition to using recycled materials, the shirt also addresses another glaring ecological issue in clothing production: dyeing fabrics. According to analysis from Smithsonian, one T-shirt can average out to 120 liters of water used and 0.01 kilograms of carbon dioxide emitted per wear—and that’s just from the dyeing process alone. To lessen the impact of the Earth Polo, Ralph Lauren has introduced an innovative dyeing process that eliminates water use altogether.
In the past, Ralph Lauren has used the Polo to support other key causes, such as global disaster relief and the Pink Pony Fund for cancer care. This time around, the company partnered with First Mile, an organization that works with entrepreneurs in low-income communities to collect plastic bottles. Those bottles are then recycled and processed into high-quality yarn, which in turn becomes the fabric used in the Earth Polo.
