At just 26 years old, actor Te Ao o Hinepehinga Rauna has landed roles on two of Aotearoa’s biggest shows – and the lead role in a new series by Snapchat. She talks to Capsule about the balance of opportunity and luck, the freedom of knowing you need very little to get by and hitting the jackpot on year six of her seven-year acting plan. During the past year-and-a-bit of Capsule’s existence, we’ve done some remote interviews to some pretty funky places but Head High actor Te Ao o Hinepehinga Rauna is really taking it to the next level when she announces that she’s coming to Capsule live from Tequila. For the past couple of months before this interview, Te Ao has been in Mexico filming a TV series for Snapchat – yes, Snapchat – and added a whistle-stop sight-seeing trip before flying home to NZ (only to arrive in lockdown, such is life in 2021).

She says Cole then penetrated her. She says the two lay on Cole’s brown bed sheets and white pillowcases when he removed her clothes and began kissing her, then tried to pressure her to perform sexual acts on…

Prosecutor blasts decision to fire Western Hills football coach – WLWT

A video that briefly appeared on Snapchat cost Armand Tatum his job as football coach at Western Hills High School, something Hamilton County's top prosecutor calls inexplicable."This coach deserves a huge apology," Joe Deters said.Deters said the video runs about five seconds and involves members of West High's football team. At one point in the video, Deters said a boy's pants are pulled down during what he calls a tussle."They didn't hurt the kid that we're aware of. They embarrassed the (expletive) out of him. I'm sure," Deters said.Deters blamed the current legal climate for costing Tatum his job and disrupting the season for West High football players, some of whom were not present when the hazing happened."Everybody has a lawyer. Everybody's suing everybody. CPS is afraid of being sued," he said. "Look, I don't blame the kid’s mom for hiring a lawyer. That's fine. It's perfectly within her rights, and she should be worried about her child. Sometimes ... common sense has to prevail here, and it's not prevailing. ... Incidents like this cause — really need more of an Andy Griffith approach than a Barney Fife approach."Deters said criminal charges in the case are not likely and hopes…

Did Facebook not learn from Snapchat Spectacles? What makes Ray-Ban Stories different …

Facebook announced that their new Ray-Ban collaboration—Ray-Ban Stories—is now available for purchase online and in retail stores in the US, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and the UK. Their “sunglasses” give their users a way to capture photos and video, share adventures, listen to music or take phone calls without using their phones—very similar to Snapchat Spectacles. If you’re unfamiliar with Snapchat Spectacles, you aren’t alone. They’re pretty un-memorable, and its appeal dimmed so quickly since its initial release in 2016. The Spectacles were described as a “more fashionable Google Glass”, but it still looked pretty tacky. Snapchat Spectacles featured a camera lens and “are capable of recording short video segments and syncing with a smartphone to upload to the user’s online account”. The smart glasses record when the user presses a button on the top left of the frame, for a maximum of 30 seconds (in 10 second intervals). They were cool in theory, but I don’t know anyone who uses Snapchat anymore besides younger users as a platform for communication—so I’m not surprised that the glasses seemed to fizzle out. So, what makes the Ray-Ban Stories different from the Snapchat ones? According to Facebook, Stories has “dual integrated 5MP cameras”, which…
