Some movie endings can leave viewers feeling uplifted or exhilarated, but some leave audiences weeping no matter how many times they've seen them. Though they may not always be sad tears, a select few movies know exactly how to pull at the heartstrings and have viewers bawling during the credits. From animated hits like Wall-E to slice-of-life dramas like The Florida Project, audiences can't help but feel weepy before things are all said and done.

Social Media
This is what I love to see from OutKick When I started at OutKick on June 1, 2020 there were like 6-7 people on the first phone call after Clay’s site reboot. That was the entire company. There are three of us remaining: Clay, Bobby Burack, and myself. Eventually, Fox News Corp. came along in the spring of 2021 and purchased the operation. Now here we are with like 50 people working for the OutKick brand. It might be more. At some point in August, I lost track of the new hires. My head was spinning. Hayley Caronia was one of those hires and Friday night was her official coming-out party for the brand. Yes, she gave us a report from the U.S. Open earlier this month, but Friday night outside Yankee Stadium was the moment Hayley arrived. I want Yankees fans on record jokin...

Mega and Macro Influencers Lose Followers Amid Recent Instagram Purge / Digital Information World

Social Media
As Instagram has grown from a small social media platform to one of the most used social spaces today, the amount of users, both real and fraudulent, has grown in parallel. In an effort to maintain the integrity of the platform, ensuring that spam accounts and accounts committing community violations are regularly identified and removed, Instagram has to conduct routine “purges” in order to rid these users from their ecosystem indefinitely. For example, Instagram users saw significant purges take place in 2014 and 2019, where a large number of largely followed accounts, mostly mainstream celebrities, were impacted by the millions.Instagram isn’t the only social media platform who continuously checks the validity of users on their accounts by removing accounts that are either inactive, ...

TikTok Swears By These 13 Genius Heat-Free Hair Styling Hacks

Social Media
I have a confession to make: I love using hot tools to style my hair. It’s fast, it’s easy, and flat irons, curling wands, and blowdryers deliver impressive results in a short amount of time. It’s no wonder that hot tools are most people’s hairstyling go-to method of choice, but, at the end of the day, the convenience probably isn’t worth the damage. Over time, heat styling can really wreck your hair, which is why I’m always on the hunt for heat-free styling hacks that actually work. While using your favorite flat iron or curling wand is the most popular way to achieve full, bouncy hair too many passes with the straightener can have majorly negative consequences. Applying heat and tension to your hair actually weakens the keratin in your hair and impairs its ability to retain moisture r...
