The 21st Century Lexicon: "The Streisand Effect" | Esquire Ph

Over the weekend, Rodel Rodis, a columnist for the Philippine Daily Inquirer, posted a photo of a two-page letter on official Senate stationery, signed by newly minted Senate President Tito Sotto. " Senate President Tito Sotto has 'requested' the Philippine Daily Inquirer to remove from its website all the articles I wrote about him ("The Rape of Pepsi Paloma" and "Was Pepsi Paloma Murdered?")," posted Rodis. "If the Inquirer agrees to his requests, a dangerous precedent will be set." INQUIRER.net has published a response from its editor in chief, Abelardo Ulanday: "IN QUIRER.net believes it is within Sen. Sotto’s right to make this request, citing particularly his claims that the articles contain unverified facts and baseless allegations. Also, to be fair with the senator, he has relayed this request to INQUIRER.net much earlier through his staff." The note goes on to clarify that "I n relation to Sen. Sotto’s request, INQUIRER.net has not made any decision...[Mr. Rodis'] act of posting this request on social media is his own decision. INQUIRER.net has nothing to do with it." In the meantime, the aforementioned articles have found new life, posted with links to the INQUIRER.net articles or with photos of the print edition, and many of them bearing the hashtag #StreisandEffect. Tito Sotto has the audacity to ask Inquirer to take this article down. Keep on sharing this to piss off the rapist. Pepsi Paloma will not be forgotten. https://t.co/l2eNR4Rm64 — Nathania Chua (@PilosopoTanya) June 16, 2018 Thread: Articles Vincente Sotto wants to have deleted from @inquirerdotnet The rape of Pepsi Paloma Part 1-4 of 5 #StreisandEffect pic.twitter.com/8ZD2Rnt74s — Duterte Watchdog vs. Super Coward presents ????

I wonder who’s to blame. pic.twitter.com/V7pY90tidl — Professional Heckler (@HecklerForever) June 17, 2018 So what is the Streisand Effect, and why is Babs' name being dragged into this? To sum up, The Streisand Effect describes how attempts to suppress information can have the opposite effect —attracting more attention and spreading the information more widely than would've been originally possible, especially online. The term comes from a lawsuit filed by superstar Barbra Streisand against photographer Kenneth Adelman, who had taken photos of the West Coast for the California Coastal Records Project, which was meant to be a resource for scientists. The photo of Streisand's house was one of over 12,000 photos in the collection—and there was no way to tell that it was the diva's property unless one were already familiar with it. ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW Nevertheless, Streisand sued Adelman for US$50 million, asking him to take down the photo from the archive. As reports at the time showed, Adelman's photo had only been accessed online a total of six times (twice by Streisand's legal team) by the time Streisand sued him. As news of the lawsuit spread, the pageviews zoomed up to over a million—not counting all the people who saw the photo in question through news articles and TV reports. The term itself was coined by Techdirt, Inc. CEO Mike Masnick in 2005 to describe the phenomenon. Since then, there has been no shortage of examples of the Streisand Effect in effect: in 2007, for example, attempts to suppress the distribution of a code used to prevent movie piracy only led to an organized attempt to spread it worldwide; Beyoncé also triggered the Streisand effect in 2013, when she asked Buzzfeed to take down a listicle showing unflattering photos of her ; in the same year, the French intelligence agency forced the deletion of an entry about a military station , making it briefly the most viewed page on French Wikipedia. The list goes on. And what was the outcome of the original Streisand Effect event? To add insult to injury, Streisand lost the suit and was ordered to pay for the photographer's legal fees. AND the photo is now roaming free on the internet, free for anyone to view or use, particularly for articles concerning the Streisand Effect. See: Not only is this photo of Barbra Streisand's house free to view online despite the singer's $50-M lawsuit, but its exact location is now also widely spread in captions like this one.

Gabe Mercado on the Joys & Challenges of Parenting Solo | Esquire Ph

You might remember Gabe Mercado as the funny guy who starred in Yakult’s iconic “Okey ka ba tiyan?” commercials. In the early 2000s he was extremely active in the local television, movie, and music scene as an actor, comedian, host, and vocalist. But for the past 12 years, his most important role has been that of a devoted single father to his son, Beeto. Back in 2004, he and his wife took Beeto in as a foster child, fell in love with him, and decided to adopt him. When they separated two years later, they agreed that Mercado would get full custody. While the prospect of single parenthood was certainly daunting, Mercado threw himself wholeheartedly into his new role. He gradually quit his career in television, and became a corporate training consultant to make sure he would have enough time for Beeto. IMAGE: Courtesy of Gabe Mercado “If you have a thriving career as an actor you have zero time,” he explains. As a telenovela actor, he often did three 24-hour taping days in a week. The rest of the time he spent catching up on sleep. And so ten years ago, he quit acting in soap operas. 5 years later, he stopped working in television altogether. In some ways, leaving showbiz was a relief. “I would do sit coms, I would host talk shows. But the mindset was still ‘I need to have a show, I need to have a television career’ and that can be all-consuming,” he recalls. “It would lead me sometimes into thinking ‘Wow, I’m better than this guy. Why does this guy have one more show than me?’ when I already had two. I would get greedy. I was always comparing myself and I suppose that’s the nature of television and being in front of the camera. You want to be seen as the best, the guy with the most shows.” “When I quit all my television projects about five years ago, I was just so relieved that it was no longer the measure of my self-esteem. I didn’t feel inggit anymore,” Mercado adds. Leaving his television career also allowed him to pursue something he had long been interested in: corporate consulting using improvisational theater. Mercado teaches his clients to think on their feet, collaborate with others, and contribute to a less toxic work environment. As a consultant, he can choose his projects and have more control over his time. This is essential since, as a single parent, Mercado can’t pass the buck to anyone when it comes to parent-teacher conferences, school activities, and taking care of Beeto when he gets sick. “Sometimes, some questions, some concerns can only bubble up in the stillness of constant presence.” IMAGE: Courtesy of Gabe Mercado Another challenge of being a solo parent is that Mercado has to be both father and mother, nurturer and disciplinarian. While some parents like to play roles, he doesn’t have that luxury. He’s made a point of becoming comfortable with his “feminine,” nurturing side, and being someone Beeto feels he can confide in and run to for comfort. “I think honestly I do that well. But he’s been rating me low on the discipline and being more of a nagger and in his face. He actually told me that over the summer—I’m okay as a dad but pretty bad as a disciplinarian mom. He says the opportunity has passed because he’s no longer scared of me,” Mercado says with a laugh. When asked what he loves most about being a father, Mercado says that it keeps him humble. While he enjoys a very successful career as artistic director and founder of Silly People’s Improv Theater (SPIT) and academic director of Third World Improv School, there’s nothing like interacting with Beeto to bring him back to earth. “Parenting a teen keeps you humble because there are so many ways you can get it wrong. Not just objectively, but also in his eyes,” he explains. IMAGE: Courtesy of Gabe Mercado After all, teenagers are known to be moody—little things like your tone or facial expression can easily piss them off and cause them to tune you out. “I’m like ‘Wow, I may think I’m the shit everywhere else but at home, being the parent of a teen is like being under a microscope and they react and it can change the mood and all of that,” Mercado says. While Mercado occasionally finds this confusing and frustrating, he also takes it as a challenge to be a better dad. “By no means do I think I’m a perfect dad. I struggle even to be a good or acceptable dad,” he says. “Sometimes I ask him, ‘Please rate me as a dad,’ and he’ll just say, ‘Oh, you’re okay.’” Mercado finds parenting a teen poses different demands. “It actually demands more time but just of presence,” he observes. “As a teen, he doesn’t always want to talk to me or do things with me. He just made the request to just be there in the same room. Just be near.” Sometimes Beeto even tells him, “Can you go out? Go have fun, go on a date. As a solo parent, Mercado has a unique bond with his son. And now that Beeto’s a teen, this has led to him being comfortable asking tough questions like “Dad, have you ever used a condom? How many times have you had sex?” Mercado suspects that two-parent families don’t always have to deal with such awkward questions. Sometimes Beeto even purposefully asks him questions to make him feel uncomfortable. “He’s pilyo in that way, but there is a natural curiosity behind it,” Mercado says. He tries to answer Beeto as truthfully as he can, with guidance. “In a way, I consider that a measure of success of how I want to be as a parent. I want to be the kind of parent that he can ask uncomfortable questions with. If ever he gets in trouble, he knows he can run to me. I can tell him about the concept of safe sex, and it’s not uncomfortable conversation.” When asked what advice he can give to dads who would like to become closer to their children, Mercado says, “Don’t fool yourself with the concept of quality time. Quantity time trumps quality time all day, every day. You can’t have it all. You can’t have a wonderful, no-holds-barred career plus a hobby with cars and regular gold and all of that, and still want quality time.” He observes that sometimes, all your child wants is your presence, even if you aren’t doing anything together. His problem with the concept of “quality time” is that it can lead to parents trying to have forced conversations or maximize the little time they have with their kids with too many activities. "Don’t fool yourself with the concept of quality time. Quantity time trumps quality time all day, every day." IMAGE: Courtesy of Gabe Mercado “Outwardly, it might look good but there’s no substitute for being there and being available when your child has an uncomfortable question na doon lang niya masasabi or doon lang niya naisip,” Mercado explains. “Sometimes, some questions, some concerns can only bubble up in the stillness of constant presence.” Ultimately, going for quantity time with your child may require you to sacrifice your golf games, but the bond you’ll develop will be well worth it. Mercado considers being a dad as the single thing he’s proudest of. “Iba rin kasi when you’re given the sole responsibility of forming what will hopefully be a positive contributing member of society. One with minimal personal issues. I suppose it is every parent’s dream na contributing member of society ’yung anak niya. And to be given that sole responsibility is something I want to be worthy of.” “While I feel good and proud of the work I do, it doesn’t compare to the pride and happiness I feel when my son has had a good insight or a good breakthrough in conquering personal challenges,” he continues. “Now that I’m older, I’m realizing it’s the things you do in your personal sphere that often have the most impact.”

My Recent Self Reflection Was a Reminder That We All Peak Differently - Preen

My Recent Self Reflection Was a Reminder That We All Peak Differently - Preen

the A few weeks ago, I spent Labor Day weekend at the beach with one of my closest friends. It’s been a long time since I’ve been anywhere close to the sea, and it was good because I was able to do a lot of reflection—something I haven’t been doing for a while because I like keeping myself busy. Being near the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves opened up the dreaded “Can of Denial,” which is a slew of things and emotions that I’ve numbed myself to feeling because it would lead to an existential crisis, which is happening at the moment. I thought I’d share it with you today because I know it’s not something I’m going through alone, so maybe we could talk about it. I tend to overthink A LOT. No, I don’t “tend to,” I really do . There’s something about me trying to do as many things as I can before I turn 30 because I feel that 30 is some kind of finality. I know, I know; so many women in their 30s tell me it’s awesome, but I look back and realize I felt the same way during my teens before turning 20. So I did a slight assessment of my journey so far. Honestly, I’ve always felt that I was a late bloomer. During high school, I felt really out of place, especially not being able to find a circle of friends that I “vibed” with. As an adolescent, it was quite a struggle because I’d make friends outside of my school and be thrown into different social circles. As a result, I couldn’t keep up with those friendships and I had difficulty find my own voice, so I just waited and counted the days until high school graduation. Thankfully, I finally found a circle of friends during my university years. I learned that it was okay to be vulnerable and share my feelings about growing up with a trusted group with whom I felt acknowledged and supported. So during that weekend beach trip, my friend and I got talking about our lives and what is really keeping us from just doing what we love. Apart from the practicality of having a day job because we live overseas, we realized that there is a certain something that is hindering us from sharing our art to the world. I am grateful to have this online space where I can share with you some of my struggles and we can talk about it, because I know I’m not the only one who goes through these humps and bumps. But this is just a single aspect of it. There is still so much I want to do, but on my end, the biggest thing that has been holding me back is fear —the fear of rejection, humiliation, embarrassment, negative feedback, and the fear of not measuring up. It’s been something I’ve carried with me since my childhood, I guess. And being able to acknowledge this right now, I feel, is a step forward. There’s also a fear of running out of time, and I feel it now especially in my late 20s. It’s ridiculous, I know! During high school, I thought my 24-year-old teacher was already super-mature and maybe she’s figured her whole life out and has her life plan on point. And here I am, a 28-year-old that is the exact reverse of how I pictured a 20-something to be. There are still days (lots of them), when I feel stuck, lost, and jaded. I guess it’s really part of life, and one thing I am still quite guilty of doing is comparing my lowest lows to the highest highs I see on social media. We are all in a journey of becoming, and we all peak at different periods, but sometimes, I can’t help but question what I am doing and if this is really where I’m meant to be. There are so many books I’ve read, online articles I’ve plowed through that have encouraged me to “just do the thing,” and I know I need to get over the hesitation and self-doubt—this takes time. I recall writing about stillness in the season , and perhaps, being “still” and figuring things out is where I am supposed to be at this point in time. My location pin could state I am “nowhere” right now, but it’s still somewhere. I just need to remember that life always looks different for everyone, and while I am waiting for my rocket to come, I am at a great advantage to learn and build, help, and connect. Sometimes I forget how much purpose each season of our lives bring to our overall well being, and maybe this season of existential confusion and crisis is just what I need to get the gears grinding again. So I am writing this as a reminder to myself as well to not worry and to just relax because we peak at different ages in life, and maybe being “nowhere” is my “somewhere” right now.

Pamela Anderson Takes a Risk in Revealing White Dress and Black Pumps for Dinner

Pamela Anderson Takes a Risk in Revealing White Dress and Black Pumps for Dinner Isis Briones Reblog Pamela Anderson didn’t hold back the glam during her dinner out at the celebrity hot spot Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood, Calif., on Friday night. The star donned a flattering long white slip dress that she paired with a matching lace bra underneath — which was then covered up by her cardigan. As Anderson stepped out of the building, the paparazzi was ready to take photos of her leaving, and unfortunately, the flash from the cameras captured her slip in a way that allowed everyone to see partially through the fabric. Despite nearly exposing more than she intended, the blonde bombshell didn’t seem fazed at all and just kept walking. Maybe it was her elegant black pumps similar to the ones below that gave her the confidence to not let that ruin her evening. Either way, classic heels like these are essential to any wardrobe, and the following alternative couldn’t be more affordable with a price tag of only $69.95. It’s a quick and easy way to tie together any wedding guest look or as Anderson proved, even a simple meal out with friends this summer. The pumps also easily work with tights or any of those fall outfits. In short, there’s no going wrong with the shoes. Want more?

Rita Ora Takes Boat Ride in Sassy White and Green Floral Dress With Matching Sneakers Isis Briones Reblog Rita Ora has been spending a lot of time in New York lately, but beyond her star-studded events , the singer also managed to take some time off. After all, it’s basically summer. Today, she took to Instagram to share a throwback moment of herself taking a relaxing boat ride in Central Park. “I had the best Sunday ever,” she said of the photo in her caption. To complement her chill day in the city, Ora opted for a stylish green and white casual look featuring a floral dress and matching sneakers. She also kept her accessories at a minimum only having on a stack of bracelets and sunglasses. More When it comes to a day outdoors, putting on sneakers is the way to go. Not only is it comfortable, but the closed-toe shoes keep the dirt out and protect the feet. For trendy and affordable footwear for a walk in the park, consider Adidas ’ Stan Smith sneakers — which resemble the kicks Ora wore to the city’s iconic destination. The front part of the shoe is more narrow, allowing for a cozier fit, and to ensure all-day comfort, the brand incorporated a padded fabric lining inside the sneaks.

'Jersey Shore' Cast Reveals How Sammi Sweetheart Reacted to Her 'Sammi Doll' on 'Family Vacation' (Exclusive)

'Jersey Shore' Cast Reveals How Sammi Sweetheart Reacted to Her 'Sammi Doll' on 'Family Vacation' (Exclusive) Katie Krause‍ And as it turns out, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola has been keeping up with the reboot, too ! The 31-year-old reality star opted not to join her former housemates in Miami to try and “avoid potentially toxic situations,” likely referring to her ex-boyfriend, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. But Pauly D took it upon himself to replace real-life Sammi with a fake (but lifelike) Sammi doll - which has become a major fixture all season long. ET exclusively caught up with Jersey Shore stars Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese and Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio on Friday at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, where they revealed what Sammi thought of her doll. Pauly D says he's talked to her since the show started airing, and she thought the prank was just as funny as the rest of us! "I have! I have [talked to her] and she gets the joke, she knows it was all in good fun, I'm glad too 'cause I was like, 'Shoot, I hope she doesn't hate me,' you know?" Pauly revealed, before adding, "And I wanna say that thing is so heavy, it's like dead weight!" Deena, who has remained closest with Sammi over the years, defended her on the show multiple times whenever the cast brought up her name. "It was important to me because I would hope if I wasn't in the house she would do the same for me and I really think she would," Deena said. "I told her I wasn't really gonna let anybody talk bad about her and she's fine, she thinks the whole thing was funny, she doesn't care." When asked if Sammi heard that Ronnie admitted to still having feelings for his ex during a shocking episode , the cast said he's not a big topic of conversation with her. "Yeah, she doesn't really care to talk about Ron," Deena explained. "Yeah, that I didn't ask her about," Pauly joked. "We don't really talk about Ron very much. I mean, I did. I was, like, 'What do you think about the doll?'" Deena continued. "And she was like, 'Whatever,' she was like, 'Actually, the voice box is pretty funny,' So I was like, 'See, she's a good sport!'" But, will we see Sammi in season two? Cameras are already rolling on the cast -- they went into production in Las Vegas earlier this month. "That I don't know... I hope so," Pauly said. "I hope so... we'll see," Mike added. Deena, though, isn't as optimistic. "Probably not... I mean, I would love to see her too... I miss Sam," she said. When the idea of Sammi showing up while Ron left for vacation was brought up, the cast seemed into it. "I would love that," Pauly said. And if anyone can do it, it's Pauly. The 37-year-old DJ was able to bring ex-roommate Angelina Pivarnick to Miami as a surprise prank on the cast. Angelina's return wasn't without drama, though . The 31-year-old seemingly pooped her pants (yes, really) in the back of a cab and then proceeded to try and show her roommates the accident -- which she claimed was actually her period. "If TV could allow for scent, we'd be canceled," Pauly joked. "It was so bad." Still, the cast doesn't seem opposed to having her join season two in some capacity. "Well, I recently unblocked her finally after, like, seven years," Mike explained. "And I've had my first conversation already with her." The cast played coy on rumors she was with them in Vegas while cameras were rolling. "You gotta see!" Pauly teased. The cast also admitted Angelina has to "earn her stripes" before being added to their group text chain. One thing that is in the group text chain, though -- chatter about the show's possible Emmy nominations (in the Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program and Casting for a Reality Program categories). "We sent the billboard for the consideration of the Emmys," Pauly admitted. The group is really hoping to score noms, but also can't believe there is a campaign around their show. "Honestly, would never expect it," Vinny said. "We were just, like, eight guidos from, you know, the Jersey area. We were never expected to be in the conversation of Emmys, you know what I mean?" Story Continues "It's so dope, you know what I mean? To be in consideration," Mike added. The season one finale of Jersey Shore Family Vacation airs Thursday, June 28 on MTV.

Elizabeth Hurley Turns Heads in Skintight Rose Gold Dress and Matching Sandals With a Pedi That Pops

Elizabeth Hurley Turns Heads in Skintight Rose Gold Dress and Matching Sandals With a Pedi That Pops Isis Briones Reblog Summer is here and Elizabeth Hurley is shining bright with her recent look for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children yesterday in London. In honor of the special evening benefitting the organization, the actress donned the most mesmerizing rose gold knee-length dress. For her shoes, Hurley continued with the lustrous theme and slipped on complementing ankle-strapped sandals. Though Hurley’s pair was subtle with thin straps, the budget-friendly under $100 pair from Nine West below is equally as good. The resembling option has a chunky heel that make them easy to walk in and wearable to outdoor garden weddings this season. Additionally, there’s light padding at the foot of the shoe for extra support and comfort. Forget about those trendy millennial colors and consider bringing back this classic hue like Hurley. Rose gold is an elegant choice for any affair and allows anyone to easily stand out without being over the top. For added flair, consider getting a cherry red pedicure like the star to also liven up the color and make it brighter. Before making the final decisions on those upcoming wedding guest looks, turn to Hurley and explore this forgotten shade ASAP. Want more?
