I mean anyone with eyes can see how offensive this is Not one person on your staff objected to this Wow Will not be buying your products anymore"Others wondered whether the problem was a lack of diversity at Dove They pointed to historical examples of racist ads about soap so good that it apparently washes the melanin right out of your skinThe marketing conundrum is of course not limited to the 60-year-old maker of soaps and body washesEarlier this year the German skin care company Nivea was dinged for a deodorant ad that declared "White Is Purity" As The Post’s Amy B Wang wrote there was a loud outcry from consumers who called the ad campaign "horrendous" and a "#prnightmare" A white supremacist group even posted on the company’s Facebook page: "We enthusiastically support this new direction your company is taking I’m glad we can all agree that #WhiteIsPurity"Still this weekend’s predicament was a curious one for Dove a beauty company that has a 13-year-old marketing campaign centered on rejecting standard racially insular notions of beauty in its commercialsOn its website Dove touts the "Real Beauty Pledge" a vow to feature "real women of different ages sizes ethnicities hair color type or style"It recently paid Shonda Rhimes to make mini films celebrating the theme The producer and screenwriter has created several TV shows that feature minority women as lead charactersIn May Rhimes produced a short film for Dove about the woman who started the "Fat Girls Dance" group"It’s incredible to watch these ladies go from scared fat girls to you know completely amazing warrior fat girls" Cathleen Meredith says in the video "I think the entire model of what beauty is needs to be thrown completely out and we need to start defining what beauty is for ourselves"Dove’s marketing campaign has been criticized by people who believe that feminism and women’s empowerment shouldn’t be used as marketing tools to persuade people to buy shower foamAs Time wrote in 2013 "Beauty companies like Dove and Pantene capitalize on feminist messages to hawk you products they’ve convinced you need"The article went on to say:"One could argue that messages of gender equality are important enough that it doesn’t matter if they precede ad copy for a shampoo company But that line of thinking conveniently misses the point particularly when it’s beauty companies who are using feminism to sell products"Brands like Dove and Pantene have made millions by preying on women’s insecurities and convincing them they need to buy products to meet societal standards of beauty: sure you’re beautiful just the way you are but use our products and you can be even more beautiful"The ethics of feminism-centered marketing campaigns aside Saturday’s ad was not the first time Dove’s users felt that it had missed the markIn May Dove released six limited-edition bottles of body wash in British markets – some squat and curvy some tall and lean – that were meant to represent variations of the female form It advertised the bottles using the phrase "beauty breaks the mould"As Jess Zimmerman wrote in The Post most consumers found the bottles well dumb:"Dove’s new packaging raises a number of questions: Do all the bottles have the same amount of product" she wrote "Are you supposed to buy the one that looks like you Are you allowed to buy the ones that don’t look like you Are we gearing up for a "Divergent"-style dystopia in which society is divided according to soap format"And Zimmerman expressed the same confusion that irate Dove users had this weekend"But the most important question is: What exactly is the point supposed to be"Author Information: Cleve Wootson is a general assignment reporter for The Washington Post"I asked him I said ‘What was that’ " she told The Washington PostSeconds later Owens’s 12-year-old daughter Timiyah Landers came tearing down the hallway engulfed in flames from her knees to her hairShe "looked like a fireball" Owens said "She was yelling ‘Help me’ "Owens’s fiance Marquell Sholar immediately sprang into action trying to put out the flames while getting Timiyah into the bathroom and inside the bathtub As Sholar doused the teen in cold water Owens grabbed at her daughter’s flaming clothes with her bare hands ripping them off"I was reaching through the fire" Owens said adding that she didn’t even realize she had burned her hands "It was like a reflex I didn’t even feel the fire I was just saving my daughter"The couple managed to extinguish the fire and soon Timiyah was bundled into the car with Owens at the wheel driving as fast as she could to the nearest hospitalDuring the five-minute drive Owens said she felt as if she was on the brink of going insane Thoughts raced through her mind: What had the girls been doing What had happened Interrupting the questions was a single prayer "Lord God please let my baby be okay"Friday was supposed to be a relaxing summer afternoon at home Owens said Usually when Timiyah invites friends over the girls watch videos or spend hours gabbing awayBut now Timiyah is in intensive care at a children’s hospital with nearly half her body covered in severe burns It was the outcome of attempting a viral Internet dare known as the "fire challenge" which usually involves pouring rubbing alcohol on your body setting yourself on fire and filming it all It’s just one of numerous social-media-fed stunts – some harmless some life-threatening – into which young people have been lured over the past few years Some may remember the "cinnamon challenge" eating a spoonful of ground cinnamon undiluted by water a reckless exploit that can cause gagging vomiting collapsed lungs and hospitalizationAlthough Owens said she had never heard of the fire challenge before Friday videos of teens setting themselves on fire started appearing on social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube about four years ago Timiyah is also not the first person to be seriously injured doing it In July 2014 a 15-year-old from Kentucky sustained second-degree burns after trying the fire challenge A month later a 16-year-old in Santa Ana California poured nail polish remover on his chest and lit himself on fire He was hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns"Being burned alive was one of the worst things you can imagine" the California teen told KABC-TV at the time "It’s my fault I can’t say nothing else besides it was a dumb idea"But teenagers weren’t the only group getting in on the trend In August 2014 a North Carolina mother was arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile for allegedly helping her 16-year-old son try the fire challenge According to police Janie Lachelle Talley "was present and aware of what her son (was) doing and facilitated the recording" the Charlotte News Observer reportedSince then there have been numerous incidents of fire challenges gone awry Just last month in a case with striking similarities to Timiyah’s a 12-year-old boy from South Carolina burned more than 40 percent of his body participating in the challengeOwens said her daughter is on a ventilator and needs a feeding tube Timiyah has second- and third-degree burns and most of her body is covered in heavy white bandagesAs other seventh-graders prepare to go back to school in a few weeks Owens said her daughter won’t be joining them Doctors told Owens that Timiyah will be hospitalized for at least the next few months and has about four more surgeries leftThough she hasn’t been able to ask Timiyah what happened Owens said the other girls explained that they were doing the fire challenge Timiyah had poured rubbing alcohol on her arms Owens said and one of the others had lit the fireOne of them had tried the challenge at her own home and sustained only minor burns so she introduced it to Timiyah and her other friend that afternoon Owens said"The girl said it seemed like fun" she said "you just have to be by water when you’re doing the fire challenge so my daughter offered to try it"While it isn’t exactly clear what went wrong Owens thinks it might have had something to do with the body spray Timiyah was wearing"When she put the alcohol on her and the girl lit the fire it just basically blew up because she already had flammable things on her anyway perfumes and stuff like that" Owens said adding that Timiyah’s friends are also traumatized from the incident"They weren’t expecting it to go that way" she said "It was just a challenge so it’s a lesson learned for all of them"Beyond people setting themselves on fire the Internet is the source of a variety of bizarre challenges many of which leave people wondering one thing: WhyWhy would you want to eat a Tide Pod Why would you want to rub salt on your arm and then put an ice cube on it Why would you want to snort a condom into your nose and try to pull it out of your mouthOwens said she thinks her daughter was motivated by curiosity"When they look on YouTube they see ‘Oh okay wow I want to try that the outcome with him was okay’ " she said "Some kids know their right from their wrong but they can still be curious to try something to say that they tried it"Now as Timiyah begins her lengthy road to recovery Owens said she hopes YouTube will begin taking down videos related to these dangerous challenges"If we weren’t home she’d have died" Owens said "Those kids wouldn’t have known what to do but to sit there and let her burn It’d have been pretty much over for her"This article was written by Allyson Chiu a

the first episode of The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story: felt like a police procedural the second episode is set around an epic chase This week’s installment in the 10-part mini-series bringing the OJ saga to life: the infamous Bronco chase Ninety million people watched as one of the most famous athlete in the world evaded police in a white Bronco on the 405 after he was supposed to turn himself in to police for a double homicide Writers Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander (who was actually driving on the 405 at the time of the interview) spoke with TIME about the infamous Bronco chase that scene where the Kardashian children cheer on their father as he reads OJ’s apparent suicide note and how they expect the audience’s sympathies to change over the course of the show TIME: You used Jeffrey Toobin’s The Run of His Life: The People v OJ Simpson as source material for the show in addition to other accounts But for something like OJ’s decision to try to escape in the Bronco where everyone has an incentive to tell their own skewed version of the story how do you find the truth Scott Alexander: Nobody was there 90% of the time except for the people who were there In the case of all the events in Kardashian’s house before OJ jumped into the Bronco it’s sourced in a few books and we have basic geography of OJ Simpson (Cuba Gooding Jr) [being] woken up by Robert Shapiro (John Travolta); OJ was in the living room when this doctor arrived; and this doctor and his nurse arrived; and this other doctor and this other nurse arrived Then OJ had a gun and then OJ was writing a suicide note We know how the morning played out Then it’s our job as dramatists to think about what everybody’s perspective was We know Shapiro kept pushing off the cops Everyone was getting more and more heated as the pressure was ramping up That’s a solid foundation for Larry and I to try to write this crackling 10 minute sequence as things are just building and building and getting more and more emotional inside that house until OJ finally flees In this episode we get our first real moments with the Kardashian children Robert Kardashian (played by David Schwimmer) reads OJ’s apparent suicide note on national television When reporters ask how Kardashian’s name is pronounced the children chant at the TV: “Kar-dash-i-an” How did you decide how much they would figure into the story Larry Karaszewski: The girls themselves are really only in say five minutes of the 10 hour miniseries Robert Kardashian their father is a major major character He was OJ’s best friend He’s really at the heart of it He’s one of the few people involved in the case who is involved for all the right reasons in a sense He’s a loyal friend He’s a very religious man and OJ’s his best pal and OJ looks at him and says he didn’t do it He chooses to believe his friend and remain loyal to him Part of the show is how he winds up being very conflicted over that In terms of the Kardashian empire we also see one of the themes being the birth of 24 hour media and reality television Certainly someone like Kato Kaelin or Faye Resnickthese are sort of the seeds of what reality television contains People who became famous for no particular reason Kato becoming that celebrity house guest and showing up on sitcoms and hosting Talk Soup We didn’t want to dwell on the Kardashian children but to leave them out of it I think would have been wrong as well They were around for this case To be a young child in the middle of this media circus of turning on the TV and having your father’s initial appearance to the American public be during the Bronco chase where 90 million people were watching Seeing the effect that had on their lives and their household you can’t help but feel that maybe the germ of the Kardashian empire was planted at that moment That growing up in this circus allowed them to navigate the circus that is currently happening in their TV show now Scott Alexander: We couldn’t avoid the ridiculous irony that Robert Kardashian’s introduction to the American public was when he read a suicide note on television which is really not the flashiest way to become a celebrity They’re so famous now but we have to make sure to show [the] Kardashian family was not famous that no one knew who this guy was The whole time during the trial it was the Dream Team and they would list all these famous lawyers The Dream Team was almost like a Marvel Comics of lawyers Alan Dershowitz (Evan Handler) F Lee Bailey (Nathan Lane) Robert Shapiro Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B Vance)oh and Robert Kardashian He was sort of like a B figure Toobin’s book takes the stance that OJ is undeniably guilty But the show remains ambiguous about who committed the crime Why Larry Karaszewski: We came up with a phrase that we used in the writer’s room called the unraveling of certainty That’s what Jeff Toobin’s book is: at the very beginning all this evidence points to one man It points to OJ Simpson and it seems like an open and shut case When all of America watched OJ Simpson in that Bronco being chased on the 405 we never imagined a year later that he would be acquitted For us it was about presenting all the evidence the police actually collected in a very matter-of-fact kind of way Almost a Dragnet kind of way that first episode It opens with kind of a police procedural Then over the next 10 hours you see that confidence of [prosecutor] Marcia Clark (Sarah Paulson) and the DA’s office kind of erode Basically Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and the entire defense team manages to pick apart the evidence piece by piece and you just see it kind of slipping away I think everybody already has their opinions about whether he did or not I don’t think we’re going to change any of those opinions For us it was more about examining how the verdict happened And make people understand how the verdict happened even if you didn’t agree with it Scott Alexander: Jeff wrote a very persuasive book Jeff’s agenda was “He did itwhy did he get off” I think we shifted that to “The evidence was overwhelmingwhy did he get off” We illustrate that by very fairly laying out a lot of really solid evidence in episode one through the eyes of the cops and the prosecutors which is “Oh my God this is more evidence than we’ve ever seen in a double murder” Then as Larry said the defense chips away at it for the next nine episodes undermining the jury’s confidence in it and possibly the audience’s confidence in it Did you think about where you wanted the audience’s sympathies to lie Larry Karaszewski: We felt it was our duty that if you come into the show thinking one thing about Marcia Clark you’re going to come out feeling differently about it You’re going to understand what she had to go through Chris Darden (Sterling K Brown) and Johnnie Cochran are very polarizing figures Our job is to show the humanity in the decisions they made and why they did what they did Your audience is broadfrom people who followed the whole trial to teenagers who weren’t even born at the time How did you navigate making it both truthful and compelling for everyone watching Larry Karaszewski: When a lot of people approach true life material they treat it as manifest destiny This is the way things happened so it had to happen that way I think what Scott and I try to do is look at the minutiaat all the process that goes into people making a choice There’s 1000 different ways this trial could have spun off in different directions Scott Alexander: We take delight in finding the bizarre facts that we’re assuming nobody knows Like the fact that Alan Dershowitz is actually faxing real-time trial suggestions from the middle of his legal class back at Harvard His students had actually watched him make a note and then see it show up on Court TV literally three minutes later across the country Another example: Chris Darden mentions in his biography that his father advised him not to get involved with the OJ trial which we used in a scene in episode two This is early days This was when Chris has nothing to do with the trial but his dad could see the big picture It works as a great brushstroke: he has this warm relationship with a father whose advice he does not take and he suffers the consequences Write to Eliana Dockterman at elianadockterman@timecom(WASHINGTON) The US accused a Russian woman Friday of a sweeping effort to sway American public opinion through social media in the first federal case alleging foreign interference in the 2018 midterm election The Justice Department unsealed the criminal complaint soon after US intelligence agencies in a rare public statement asserted that Russia China Iran and other countries were engaged in continuous efforts to influence American policy and voters in the upcoming congressional elections and beyond The US is concerned about the campaigns “to undermine confidence in democratic institutions and influence public sentiment and government policies” the officials said in a joint statement “These activities also may seek to influence voter perceptions and decision-making in the 2018 and 2020 US elections” The two-page statement about foreign influence was issued just weeks before the Nov 6 elections by the Office of the Department of National Intelligence the Justice Department the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security Foreign countries are using social media to amplify divisive issues in American society by sponsoring content in English-language media such as Russia’s RT and Sputnik news outlets the statement said They also distribute propaganda and plant disinformation against political candidates the departments said They statement did not provide specific examples of foreign interference The agencies said they currently do not have any evidence that voting systems have been disrupted or compromised in ways that could result in changing vote counts or hampering the ability to tally votes in the midterms which are fewer than 20 days away But they said “Some state and local governments have reported attempts to access their networks which often include online voter registration databases using tactics that are available to state and nonstate cyber actors” So far they said state and local officials have been able to prevent access or quickly mitigate these attempts President Donald Trump has often cast doubt on US intelligence findings that Russia interfered with the 2016 election as special counsel Robert Mueller investigates potential ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign But Trump recently accused China of meddling in the midterms and Vice President Mike Pence said in a speech this month that Russia’s actions in 2016 pale in comparison to the covert and overt activities by China to interfere in the current elections and counter Trump’s tough trade policies against Beijing China has denied that it is interfering in US affairs Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said recently that his country has no intention to interfere in the midterm elections in the US or meddle elsewhere Contact us at editors@timecomHe pointed out Congress appropriated $15 billion just three days after coming back to session in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. one of the key drivers on the
