The refresh is set to roll out in store from January. It comes after the launch of the biscuit brand’s festive milk chocolate Digestives and repackaged assortment of Victoria biscuits.Meanwhile, the first TV advertisement aired during a recent episode of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. It begins with grime artist TrueMendous participating in a live lounge-style gig, before she is interrupted by a junior assistant who wants to share his McVitie’s Chocolate Digestives.

Fake news is giving reality a run for its money

first_imgThat “fake news” is both pervasive and dangerous is no longer in doubt. How best to respond, however, is still an open subject. Because of that, the topic made for a lively panel Thursday at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society.Moderating the discussion, titled “Fake News, Concrete Responses: At the Nexus of Law, Technology, and Social Narratives,” Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School, began with a basic question: What is fake news? The range of possibilities, said Berkman Klein Fellow An Xiao Mina, is broad enough to render the term almost meaningless, and can encompass everything from “when an Onion article is cited as news to dealing with state-sponsored propaganda botnets.”Professor Jonathan Zittrain, George Bemis Professor of International Law and co-founder of the Berkman Klein Center, offered a definition based on intent, defining fake news as that which is “willfully false,” which he said means a story “that the person saying or repeating knows to be untrue or is indifferent to whether it is true or false.”As Minow pointed out, propaganda has been around forever. However, much of what we now recognize as fake news is complicated by a “kernel of truth,” noted Nathan Matias, a Ph.D. candidate at the MIT Media Lab. “So if you go to Google, you might feel as if you fact-checked it.”To formulate a response, Mina said it is necessary to understand how fake news spreads — the “cultural logic” that makes it attractive to a particular audience.“Often the reason things spread is not about truth or falsehood, but about affirmation,” said the technologist, who is the product director for the journalism-focused software firm Meedan. “People are looking for validation.”HLS Dean Martha Minow (from left) moderates the panel with Sandra Cortesi and Nathan Matias. Jon Chase/Harvard Staff PhotographerDrawing on her studies of middle school and high school students, Sandra Cortesi, a fellow and director of youth and media at Berkman Klein, suggested a slight shift in focus. Rather than asking news consumers to evaluate “what is true and what is false,” she said, a more revealing question would be “what do you value?”“What news actually means to young people is quite different from what it means to adults,” she said, broaching how affirmation can influence what people look for — and, thus, what they read and believe.Zittrain put this shift in historical context. As recently as a decade ago, he said, the public assumed there was a source of consistent information that could be trusted, the so-called mainstream media. “That model is scrambled now,” he said. “If you pump enough stuff out there, it’s hard to tell the reliable stuff from the nonreliable stuff.”News organizations themselves can strengthen both their practices and their readers’ trust with transparency, the panelists said.Mina’s firm is working on Check, a platform for collaborative verification of digital media that has already been used by organizations such as ProPublica and Amnesty International. This effort and others like it have the potential to strengthen credibility and educate a new generation about news gathering and journalistic ethics, she said.However, society’s infatuation with clicks will continue to clash with the complexities of news, the panelists agreed.“People like ‘likes,’” said Zittrain. “The problem is that there is no button to click that says, ‘I am having a subtle thought.’”Fake News, Concrete Responses A special Harvard Law School/Berkman Klein Center panel moderated by Dean Martha Minow, and featuring panelists Sandra Cortesi, Nathan Matias, An Xiao Mina, and Jonathan Zittrain.

Trail Mix: New Records in Bluegrass, Bar Rock, and Banjo with Beats

first_imgWith the onset of spring comes three standout records from Bloodkin’s Daniel Hutchens, North Carolina-based bluegrass band Town Mountain, and Nashville folk-hop group Judah & the Lion.Daniel HutchensThe Long Road to RedemptionDaniel Hutchens has been delivering Southern rock tunes with a literary bent with his steadfast partner Eric Carter in the underdog band Bloodkin for more than two decades. The band has been scrappily working regional clubs since the early 90s, never quite achieving the success of similar-sounding contemporaries Drivn’ N Cryin’ and the Drive-By Truckers. But as a mainstay in the storied music scene of Athens, Ga., the group has garnered plenty of critical praise and always had the respect of peers. The band’s debut album, 1994’s Good Luck Charm, was produced by Johnny Sandlin (Allman Brothers Band), and multiple Bloodkin songs have reached big crowds in the repertoire of Southern jam kings Widespread Panic.BVC cover 3000X3000 RGB_FIXSome admiring musical friends helped out with Hutchens’ new solo record, The Beautiful Vicious Cycle of Life (released April 22). The gritty 11-song effort was produced by Panic’s Dave Schools, who plays bass throughout the album and enlists support from a strong cast of Athens’ best, including producer/musician David Barbe on electric guitar and psych-folk multi-instrumentalist Thayer Sarrano on keyboards. Front and center, though, is Hutchens’ powerful bluesy voice, which howls through the tough truths of a troubled soul with an honest notebook.Lyrically, Hutchens looks back at the pitfalls of hard living, even when his brawny barroom chords have an upbeat edge. In “Touch Up Time,” he sings, “I smell that coffee burning down the stove, last night what a long sinful road I drove,” over a country rock groove with plenty of Tom Petty swagger. Going deeper is the haunting ballad “American Country Ghosts,” where Hutchens laments a long list of regrets, including bringing cocaine into his 90-year-old mom’s house, while channeling the lyrical wisdom of Patsy Cline and Waylon Jennings. It’s not all dark, though. In the anthemic fist-pumper “Pretty Girls in Summer Dresses” Hutchens finds salvation through family, admitting “I sweated out my poison, I found my power.” Town MountainFrom the Blue Ridge to the BayouIn a time of continuous genre blurring, fleet-fingered quintet Town Mountain continues to confidently deliver hard-driving straightforward bluegrass tunes that add original character to the genre’s traditional roots. Formed in Asheville, N.C., back in 2005, the group has grown from Appalachian picking party favorites to a nationally lauded act with multiple International Bluegrass Music Association Awards on band members’ shelves.To make its new album, Southern Crescent (released April 1), the band left the Blue Ridge and traveled south to work with Grammy winner Dirk Powell at his studio in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. The record features an expected dose of fast string picking, including the opening fiddle workout “St. Augustine,” but as it unfolds it becomes a well-rounded effort full of front-porch song craft that touches on various shades of roots music. “Leroy’s Reel” has a distinctly Cajun flavor, while “Comin’ Back to You” is a rockabilly dance tune propelled by some boogie-woogie piano.The band’s backbone is the sturdy voice of front man Robert Greer, who blows off a broken heart in the soulful honky tonk shuffle of “Ain’t Gonna Worry Me” and offers some twangy humor about a bad lover that won’t stay away in “Tick on a Dog.” The standout, though, is “Wildbird,” a classic highway song about curing a restless mind with road miles; perfect for a bluegrass band that sounds pretty comfortable getting outside of its comfort zone. Judah & the LionMixing Banjo and BeatsFolk, Hop and Roll is a transparent title for this Nashville outfit’s second full-length album. The folk-pop expansionists continue to look well beyond their acoustic roots by boldly incorporating banjo runs with drum machine beats and digital loops. It can be a startling combination, especially in the genre-mashing declarative “Folk-Hop Sound,” which places a skittish hip-hop beat next to walls of synth and bluegrass-phrased mandolin licks. It sounds more seamless in “All I Want is You,” a hair-raising foot-stomper with an emotional crescendo from the Mumford playbook.Folk Hop N Roll Official Album Cover smaller_FIXThe album, released last month, was made with Nashville’s Americana hot-streak producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, and Chris Stapleton), who fortunately never lets the sonic swirling overshadow what Judah & the Lion does best—write inspirational pop songs with tight hooks and infectious melodies. Lead vocalist Judah Akers grew up in rural Tennessee playing in worship bands, and he clearly knows how to hype a crowd. The emotional uplift is in full effect when he shout-sings the chorus to “Take It All Back,” an anthem about choosing romance over fame. It’s easy to see how these songs will kill live. Positive vibrations go a long way.last_img read more
