11 ways to virtually visit Santa this holiday season

Mashable - Sat, 11/28/2020 - 23:00

Santa Claus isn't canceling Christmas this year, but he definitely wants you to stay safe at ho-ho-home.

As 2020 comes to a close, holiday celebrations will undoubtedly look a little different than they have in years pastCoronavirus cases are still rising in the United States, which means it's crucial to wear masks, wash your hands, and practice proper social distancing this holiday season.

These are relatively simple protocols to follow, and luckily they won't prevent you from partaking in many beloved holiday activities, such as making hot chocolate and cuddling by the fire, watching bad Hallmark movies while decorating your tree, or taking a peaceful stroll in the snow. Unfortunately, the pandemic will make it harder for families to visit Santa Claus in person. Read more...

How to participate in USPS's Operation Santa this year

Mashable - Sat, 11/28/2020 - 19:43

This holiday season may look different than any other before, but one thing remains certain: Christmas is coming. And just because the pandemic is still raging throughout the U.S. doesn't mean that children don't want Santa to deliver toys. Thankfully, Santa is immune to the coronavirus, and USPS is helping him out with another round of Operation Santa to boot. 

For over a century, Operation Santa has helped children and their families receive gifts and necessities they might not otherwise receive, according to the New York Times. But the postal service is handling it differently this year. In previous years, volunteers would go to their post office and read local letters to Santa. They'd then pick one or more letters and buy respective gifts for the children who wrote them, buy and wrap the gifts, then ship them.  Read more...

If you've never seen an elephant baby ultrasound before, here's your chance

Mashable - Sat, 11/28/2020 - 18:27

Asha, a 25-year-old Asian elephant residing at the Oklahoma City Zoo, is expecting a baby in February 2022. The zoo released a video of the calf's ultrasound, even pointing out the growing baby's head, trunk, and legs. If you're wondering why we have to wait over a year to meet Asha's calf, it's because Asian elephants have a gestation period of 645 days...or around 22 months. 

While the calf is taking its sweet time to enter the world, the zoo stated in the video that both mother and baby are "as healthy as can be," and that they'll be posting future updates. Plus, it isn't every day you get to see an elephant ultrasound. Congrats to the happy mother (and zookeepers)! Read more...

AOC raised $200,000 for charity on her 'Among Us' Twitch stream Friday

Mashable - Sat, 11/28/2020 - 17:31

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now a pro (or close to it) at Twitch and the popular game Among Us, having streamed to over 400,000 people back in October with fellow Rep. Ilhan Omar. She's one of the few politicians who's managed to use platforms like Twitch to reach voters in an effective way — and she employed the tactic again Friday night, albeit for a different cause.

Ocasio-Cortez played Among Us on Friday, this time to raise money for food pantries, eviction defense legal aid, and community support organizations: 

Today I’m using the stream to fundraise for local food pantries, eviction defense legal aid, & community support organizations.

So many people are having a hard time in this crisis. If you’re able, you can help direct aid here efforts here:https://t.co/Dn7xy2LXCT

Surprisingly, Apple's site has the best (only) Apple TV deal for Cyber Week

Mashable - Sat, 11/28/2020 - 16:50

Get a free $50 gift card: Buying an Apple TV 32GB ($179) or 64GB ($199) from Apple's official site gets you a $50 Apple gift card — an indirect savings of around 25%.

When it comes to Apple TV, Apple is weirdly being less stingy than Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart.

Every human might experience a sale on the Apple website once in their life. Once. While Apple products, for the most part, remain at full price there, those big box stores are typically the go-to places to find Apple deals. This applies to most Black Friday and Cyber Weekend Apple deals, except for one.

So far, the only place to find any sort of deal on Apple TV is on Apple's own website. The deal comes in the form of a free $50 gift card with any Apple TV purchase.  Read more...

Photos of workers and activists protesting Amazon on Black Friday

Mashable - Sat, 11/28/2020 - 16:46

On Black Friday — the biggest shopping day of the year in the U.S. and the kickoff of holiday season shopping as a whole — Amazon workers in 15 countries protested the corporation in an action called #MakeAmazonPay. UNI, a global trade union based in Switzerland, announced the #MakeAmazonPay action with a statement about workers, global climate and progressive organizations coming together to make it happen. 

UNI pointed out several of Amazon's ills in the first sentence of their statement: anti-union practices, climate impact, not caring about worker safety, and avoiding taxes. In their list of demands, Amazon workers call for improved working conditions, a commitment to respecting workers' universal rights, more sustainability, and that the company gives back to society. Organizations such as Greenpeace and UNI itself signed the list of demands, and anyone in the public can do so as well on #MakeAmazonPay's websiteRead more...
