Federal judge rejects Citizens United effort to air film attacking Democrats!/ByJohnFrank/status/514112135237226496

A conservative group hoping to air a documentary critical of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Democrats met a setback in court today.

Citizens United attorney Ted Olson has argued that the nonprofit political organization deserved the same free-speech protections afforded to newspapers and television stations. The Denver Post reported last week:

Citizens United asked the court to void a decision from the Colorado Secretary of State’s office that required the group to disclose its donors and label the film “Rocky Mountain Heist” as an electioneering communication under state law. The group contends it is a legitimate media source.

The case is being closely watched for its potential far-reaching effects on the state’s campaign finance laws and the press as the definition of legitimate media shifts in the digital era.

Olson, who argued the Citizens United case before the U.S. Supreme Court that loosened political spending limits, told the judge the organization is no different than television stations and newspapers, such as The Denver Post, which do not need to disclose income sources.

@ByJohnFrank @Citizens_United They can air the film, they just have to disclose who's paying for it.

Facebook Helps Voters Get to the Polls On Election Day


Facebook is hoping their site can guide people in the United States to the polls this Election Day. The social network has built a polling place locator tool, so on Tuesday, users can easily figure out where to head to cast a ballot.

The map is already live at Facebook’s U.S. Politics page, but will be available at the top of news feeds on Election Day.

Like past elections, Facebook will feature a header at the top of the page reminding users it is Election Day, and allow them to click on an “I voted” button that will show photos of their friends who have also clicked on the button. When a Facebook user clicks on the “I voted” button, the locator map will become available for them to track down a polling station.

The locator was built in conjunction with the Voting Information Project and Microsoft.

And for the first time, the site will also feature a heat map showing where the aggregate Facebook population is voting around the country in realtime. Users won’t be able to see where specific members voted but can see which areas of the United States are hotspots for ballots cast.

The map will also become available when users click the “I voted” button or at

“We’re simply promoting civic engagement on election day,” Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes tells Mashable. “Studies have shown that a person is more likely to vote with social context, and there is no place more social than Facebook.”

Facebook had previously also launched a campaign insights tool with CNN allowing voters to learn what issues the Facebook population was buzzing about around the country during the election season.

The polling locator map is currently unavailable on mobile, but Noyes says Facebook is planning to have it accesible through apps tomorrow.

Will you use Facebook’s polling locator to get to vote tomorrow? Share in the comments below.

25 Secrets From Cycle 20 Of “America’s Next Top Model”

1. Shoot days were long. Like, REALLY long.

Patrick Wymore/The CW

The photo shoots breeze by when you’re watching Top Model on TV, but for the models involved, they took even longer than you might think. “Oh my God, we were there for like 13 hours at least every day,” Don said. “We’d get up at five in the morning, get home at midnight.” Mike added, “They make it seem like it was so quick, but really it was just all of us hanging around all day.”

2. Don’s most painful challenge was walking the runway down a building, and not just because he’s afraid of heights.

Patrick Wymore/The CW

“The harness they had us wear was tearing my balls up, straight up,” he admitted. “Like when I got done, I could barely walk.”

3. Marvin hated the paint shoot, because he was fighting with just about everyone at that point.

Udo/Pottle Productions Inc

We saw some of that drama play out on the show, but it got pretty bad in the house. “At that time, I think I was only talking to Don,” Marvin revealed. “I wasn’t really clicking with anybody, because everybody had ganged up on me. Which I didn’t care about. But at that point, the tension was pretty intense. I know for Chris [H.], he felt it more.”

4. Chris S. getting kicked off might have something to do with the fact that he was paired with the two tallest guys for his final shoot.

Douglas Friedman/Pottle Productions Inc

“In most photo shoots, you have an apple box or they cheat it in some way, but in the photo I got eliminated with, I had Mike and Jeremy, who are both like, 6’6, 6’7 dudes,” Chris said. “I look five feet tall. It’s kind of hard to bring your energy that big.”

5. But in the real world, there are advantages to being a more petite male model.

Patrick Wymore/The CW

“When you walk into the room and everyone’s Mike-sized,” Chris continued, “those are the auditions I end up booking. It’s really strange. For a petite male model, you can fit into higher fashion clothing. You can do more editorial. Obviously, you’re not gonna do a lot of runway.”

6. As far as fun shoots, Don loved the nails — even though they were tough to maintain.

Franco Lacosta/Pottle Productions Inc

“They weren’t too heavy, but they broke easy,” he recalled. “I think they broke like three times. I had to get them put back together.” Don also believes he got some of the least feminine nails. That bit is up for debate.

7. Mike’s favorite shoot might surprise you, because it’s the one he got kicked off for.

The Cobra Snake/Pottle Productions Inc

“The trailer park, even though I got sent home that day, was actually a lot of fun,” he said. “We were all kind of — that was a long day, but we were all just kind of kicking it. Everyone was in a good mood.” See, it’s not just about the competition. Well, for some models.

8. Panel was also an all-day event, and it was stressful on everyone.

Patrick Wymore/The CW

“We’re up there all day,” Don revealed. “It’s freezing in there. Your legs are shaking, because you’re like, Did I do good? Panel is very stressful.” Don suffered from anxiety before being cast on America’s Next Top Model, but he credits panel with at least a couple panic attacks.

9. Marvin isn’t always this emotional. Really!

He hasn’t even cried since the show’s been wrapped. You might assume it was the high stress that made Marvin one of the most tearful models, but his explanation is actually a lot sweeter than that. “That was the first time I was in a safe environment where it was OK to show emotion,” he explained. “You throw me in a house where it’s like, OK, you can express yourself. I had all these emotions that I’m not used to having, and I think it just came out. … It was like therapy almost.”

10. Having a girlfriend at home helped Don stay focused and avoid the drama, for the most part.

Angelo Sgambati/The CW

Even with his anxiety issues, Don comes across as one of the chillest models in the house. That may be because we haven’t seen him throw himself at any of his female competitors. “You know, I had a girlfriend while I was on the show, so I wasn’t messing with any of the girls,” Don said. But he did throw some shade at another model: “Phil, him and Jiana were crazy the whole show. He had no remorse for his girlfriend.”

11. As for Marvin, he really is as flirty as he comes across. And it actually could have been worse.

The CW / Via

“Yeah, I’m flirty,” he admitted. “I showed myself how I am. I think they did a good job of editing. I mean, it could have been a lot worse. I know there were a lot of moments they didn’t show that I am so grateful for. The editing team, thank you so much.” When I asked him to divulge those moments, he naturally declined. Boo.

12. That intimate cuddling moment with Renee? They didn’t know anyone would see that footage.

The CW / Via

“There was just the cameras from the ceiling, which we didn’t know if it was going to be used,” Marvin said. “We had no idea that those cameras are night vision, which we should of course know. But it was just so awkward to watch it back.”

13. The slobbery commercial kiss was awkward, too — so much so that Marvin actually apologized to Renee’s mom.

“We practiced kissing and I told her I wasn’t going to do anything weird, and she was like, ‘Marvin, please don’t do anything weird,’” he recalled. “I just wanted to do something fun. Just licked her face all over.” That’s the part we saw. What we didn’t see was what happened after the episode aired. “It was embarrassing for her,” Marvin continued. “I talked to her mom about it. I was like, ‘I’m so sorry, Ms. Bhagwandeen. I apologize for that.’”

14. For Don, the hardest part of life in the house was being totally cut off from the world.

The CW

“We had maybe five minute phone call time a week, so it was really hard to not be able to talk to nobody, to know what was going on in the regular world,” he explained. “There was no news.” No TV. No internet. No iPhones. Just the pleasure of each other’s company. No wonder these models fight so much. Even so, Don said, “We all kept each other pretty entertained.”

15. Can you guess the hardest part of co-ed living for Marvin? Yep, being so close to all the girls.

The CW

“They’re walking around in booty shorts and tank tops!” he said. “They don’t show the girls flirting back, but they did! There were definitely moments where they flirted back.”

16. Confessionals were mandatory, which means there’s a lot of footage we haven’t seen.

The CW

“I think we did 20 or 30 minutes a night, everybody,” Don revealed. So how much was left on the cutting room floor? Quite a bit, according to Mike. “They hardly used any of that footage,” he added. “I’m sure there’s some really good stuff on there.”

17. So yes, Mike may have done a confessional drunk, but relax, he doesn’t have a drinking problem.

“It was funny watching it, because I literally would get texts from friends of them taking pictures of the TV, or just like, ‘This is classic Mike,’” he said. “I get drunk and fall asleep. That’s what happens.”

18. The models had to cook for themselves, with varying degrees of success. The worst cook: Kanani.

The CW

“She put frickin’ weird sauces on everything,” Don said. “She put salt and sugar on everything.” But Marvin pointed a finger at Renee. “Renee tried to cook lasagna and it looked undercooked,” he recalled. “I was gonna be nice and eat it, but I was like, nah. I didn’t want to eat it.”

19. Some models needed extra help: Chris S. had to make a grocery list for Jeremy.

The CW

It’s kind of precious, but yes, mama’s boy Jeremy did not know how to make a grocery list. Chris retold the story: “Jeremy was like, ‘Hey man, would you help me make a grocery list? Because I’ve never brought groceries before.’ ‘Yep, I will, dude, I totally got your back.’” Adorable.

20. The house was mostly clean, but the girls were dirtier — especially Alex.

Patrick Wymore/The CW

At least, that’s the way Marvin tells it. “I know the girls were so dirty,” he said. “Alex, that’s the one reason I never flirted with her. I never talked to her that much. Because she was just so — I don’t want to say she didn’t practice good hygiene, but she would leave her hair extensions all over the place. Her smoothie, she would drink it and leave it on the floor, and it would attract rodents and stuff. I just couldn’t deal with it.” Ouch.

21. While the girls had some privacy in their bathrooms, the guys didn’t get any.

The CW

Well, except for when they decided to bathe together. But seriously, the guys had it much worse. “No doors on the bathroom, so pretty much there was a curtain that went over the toilet area,” Don explained. “There was a shower and a toilet, so you’ll be going to the bathroom and somebody will just hop in the shower like it’s nothing. You’re taking a dump and somebody’s showering. There’s no door so people will be outside just having conversations while you’re going to the bathroom.” Ah, the glamorous life of a model.

22. Looking back, Chris S. is OK with being eliminated, because it actually allowed him to take a cool opportunity.

The CW

“I am thankful,” he said. “I filmed a movie right after I got off America’s Next Top Model, and I was able to finish that feature while other people weren’t allowed to work. So it worked out well for me. I’m happy about it.” Because Chris and Bianca were the first eliminated, they did not participate in the season’s photo shoots like the contestants eliminated after them.

23. Mike has experienced a different life after filming. One thing he’s learning now is that people on the internet hate him.

“I’ve read some of the blogs and stuff like that, and they take the show very seriously,” he said. “So they hate me. Tyra found me. I kind of just was thrown into this thing, and to me, it was just a very unique experience. It was something I just kind of felt like I had to do. And they kind of looked at me like, who’s this old dude that came in off the street and doesn’t know what he’s doing?”

24. Nevertheless, Mike is fine with the way he comes across on camera and still thinks the show was a great experience.

Sarah Silver/Pottle Productions Inc

“Everything I did when I was there was what I would normally do,” he continued. “You could tell some people were being ‘extra,’ as we called it, for the camera. I kind of looked at it as, why not just go in it and just be yourself and have fun with it? It’s a cool experience.”

25. As for Marvin, he has the perfect excuse if anyone questions his onscreen behavior: It’s just for TV.

Matthew Jordan Smith/Pottle Productions Inc

“That’s my Get Out of Jail Free card: It’s just for TV,” he confided. “I tell a lot of people, ‘Oh, it’s TV, it’s TV.’ They don’t know, OK, that’s really him.” Well, now they might.

America’s Next Top Model airs Friday at 9 p.m. on The CW.

Teacher sends inspiring letter home with test scores…saying test scores don’t matter very much

When Barrowford Primary School head teacher Rachel Tomlinson sent her students their key stage two test results last week, she included a letter with the test scores…

Test Results Letter

The UK teacher for the Nelson, Lanceshire, school found the letter on Minnesota teacher Kimberly Hurd Horst’s blog last year. Wanting to send a reminder that while test scores are important, they do not define each student, Tomlinson repurposed the letter and sent it to her pupils.

Here’s the full text of the letter…

Dear Charlie Owen,

Please find enclosed your end of KS2 test results. We are very proud of you as you demonstrated huge amounts of commitment and tried your very best during this tricky week.

However, we are concerned that these tests do not always assess all of what it is that make each of you special and unique. The people who create these tests and score them do not know each of you — the way your teachers do, the way I hope to, and certainly not the way your families do.

They do not know that many of you speak two languages.

They do not know that you can play a musical instrument or that you can dance or paint a picture.

They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them or that your laughter can brighten the dreariest day.

They do not know that you write poetry or songs, play or participate in sports, wonder about the future, or that sometimes you take care of your little brother or sister after school.

They do not know that you have travelled to a really neat place or that you know how to tell a great story or that you really love spending time with special family members and friends.

They do not know that you can be trustworthy, kind or thoughtful, and that you try, every day, to be your very best… the scores you get will tell you something, but they will not tell you everything.

So enjoy your results and be very proud of these but remember there are many ways of being smart.

Military Develops Xena-Inspired Armor for Women


In pop culture, women’s battle armor is half-naked and totally unsuited for combat, and in real life women’s armor doesn’t even fit. What’s a lady soldier to do? Take a cue from Xena: Warrior Princess, apparently.

In 2009, the U.S. military began to address complaints from women that their armor was uncomfortable and more of a hindrance than an asset. As a result, the Army is testing eight different armor sizes tailored to women using technology inspired by Xena: Warrior Princess. That technology? Bra-shaped darting.

Part of the problem with designing armor that accommodates different bodies is the difficulty of adding curves — the material that the Army uses actually gets heavier with added curving, so if they were to make curved armor using the same material, it would end up being twice as heavy. For now, women soldiers can choose between 11 different armor sizes designed with men in mind.

A U.S. Army study concluded that the current women’s armor not only made it difficult to enter and exit vehicles, but it also prevented them from aiming their weapons properly, an obvious detriment on the combat field.

“It rubbed on the hips, and the vests were too long in the front, so that when you had female soldiers climbing stairs or climbing up a hill or a tree, or sitting for a long time in a vehicle, that would create pressure points that in some instances could impact blood flow and cause some discomfort,” said Lt. Col. Frank Lozan, who is helping redesign women’s body armor.

The reviews from the women of 101st Airborne Division, who are test subjects for the early armor prototypes, are positive so far.

“They say, ‘I could wear this all day,’ ‘I could run a marathon in this,’ and ‘It feels much lighter,’ even though it really isn’t any lighter,” Lozano says.

We hope that women will soon be adequately armored and armed for combat and, with any luck, nerd culture will follow suit and stop putting us in bras and high-heeled boots. C’mon, character designers, think Xena and U.S. Military, not Maxim.

Get The Most Out of Mobile App Analytics With These 8 Tips


When building a mobile app, well-thought-out strategy is critical, great design is paramount, and solid development is fundamental. But analytics is key to measuring the execution and value of all the hard work you put into the app. As smartphones continue to infiltrate every aspect of our lives, it’s understandable why marketers and developers alike are making a sustained effort to measure user behavior through app analytics. While the mobile application industry is relatively young, there is a variety of platforms and services vying for the privilege of providing you with good app data.

These tips will help you to get the most of of mobile app analytics, and hopefully help you to avoid some costly mistakes.

1. Start Using App Analytics Way Before Your App Is In The Store


If you start thinking about analytics the day your app gets accepted into the app store, you’re too late. There’s a wealth of data that can be analyzed during your app’s alpha and beta phases that will allow you to create a stronger, more user-friendly v1. One tool to manage a data-driven beta period is TestFlight which allows developers to distribute a beta and analyze usage to facilitate quick iterative cycles. A lot of developers get caught up with feature and design changes during beta, but a data-driven beta period will result in a better product. This brings us to the second tip…

2. Your Users Might Not Use Your App The Same Way You Do

This is particularly frustrating for developers, who meticulously plan users’ flow through their applications. Despite countless hours of planning, the unapologetic truth remains, users might not use an app the same way its creators thought they would. That’s why it’s so critical to get unbiased (i.e. not your friends and family) users using your app. Apple permits up to 100 users to be authorized per each standard developer account, and developers should really try to take advantage of each of these to collect feedback from a diverse sample of test users. One interesting tool you can use to get qualitative UI feedback is which is a supplemental analyics tool that allows developers to see which parts of your app users interact with using (you guessed it) heat maps. This can give you unbiased, behavioral feedback that goes beyond data, because “The best information always comes from real users.” as noted by CEO, Cyprian Ciećkiewicz.

3. Pick KPIs that Make Sense For Your Target Audience

If you somehow missed the message in Apple’s “There’s an App for That” campaign, let me note that there are a lot of apps for a lot of different things. Apps for content publishing, social networking, utilities, commerce and gaming all require attention paid to different KPIs. Before you dive into analytics, make sure you understand what you’re hoping to better understand. For instance, a content publishing app might be more concerned with user retention, while an ecommerce app is invariably primarily interested in purchase conversions. As Wayne Chang, founder of crash reporting provider Crashlytics notes, “A bunch of useless numbers on a screen are not helpful. But, the right information, at the right times, can provide incredible insights that are actionable for the developers.” Be sure to define an analytics strategy that aligns with your app’s core offering.

As Suhail Doshi of mixpanel notes, app analytics isn’t about pageviews. Instead, “focus on measuring things that matter like specific engagement related to [your] app.”

4. There Are Different Analytics Providers for Different Types of Apps

The variety of mobile apps is expansive, making the phrase “mobile apps” pretty undescriptive. Some analytics providers cater to different app verticals. For instance, Playtomic might be a good fit if you’re developing a mobile game, whereas Localytics might be a better choice if you’re building a content delivery app. Not all apps are created equal, and neither are all analytics platforms.

5. Analyze Market Data to Avoid Mistakes Competitors Have Already Made

There are a few analytics providers such as Distimo that offer market data. While you may find it a bit expensive to access, this type of data is useful to see what similar apps are doing in the marketplace relating to price and number of downloads. Armed with market data, developers can make well-informed decisions and potentially avoid mistakes that they see competitors making. For instance if a competing app is performing poorly at a $2 price point, you may be able to better determine the appropriate price for your app.

6. Make Sure You Install the Analytics Platform Correctly


User data can be really useful, pending the data is accurate. Chances are, your analytics provider of choice will offer an SDK to install its platform. Be careful to install this correctly, because an analytics platform that’s supplying faulty data is no good and counterproductive. Another important point when installing an SDK is to be mindful of how it might affect your app’s speed. Following proper installation protocol will ensure that the least amount of bloat is incurred. When in doubt, consult your analytics provider’s support team to make sure everything is as it’s supposed to be. They might also be able to offer some helpful pro tips to help you get the most out of their product.

7. Pick a Provider You Can Grow With

If you have an iOS app and are looking to create an Android version, or an iPhone app and are looking to build an iPad version, make sure you pick an analytics provider that you can cater your needs. If you’re considering monetizing your application through in-app advertising, you might want to use an analytics provider that also has partnerships with ad networks or strong ad delivery models. Pick a vendor that is going to be able to handle your needs as your product scales, whether that means covering different platforms, devices or geographies.

8. Mobile App Analytics Shouldn’t End With Your Mobile App

For “mobile only” products and brands that leverage mobile as one of multiple channels, there are valuable insights that can be drawn from data away from your mobile app, related to your app. Most notably, social media can offer hints about user sentiment pertaining to your application. Social media is also a good tool to detect flaws and connect with users, because users are usually the first to point out if something isn’t working as it’s supposed to or could improve. Don’t approach mobile app analytics as a siloed entity, but rather integrate all of the areas where your brand is collecting data to get a comprehensive understanding of your app’s position in the marketplace.


There are an estimated one billion smartphones in the world today, and it is expected that there will be two billion by 2015 with exponentially more mobile apps. With the market developing so rapidly, it’s to be expected that app analytics will continue to evolve at an equally quick pace. If you dig your heels into app analytics now, you could save yourself from making some easily preventable mistakes. Do you have other questions or tips for getting the most out of mobile app analytics? Let us know in the comments.
