Donald Trump Delays Harriet Tubman $20 Bill Until He’s Out Of Office

Harriet Tubman is one the most important women in the history the United States America. After being born into slavery, she made approximately thirteen missions to rescue over seventy slaves, becoming one the nation’s heroes. When Barack Obama introduced his intentions to have Tubman on the $20 bill, many people rejoiced. Andrew Jackson, who is currently on the $20 bill, was a slave owner himself and he went to great lengths to prevent Native Americans from frequenting his land. The Tubman $20 bill was supposed to be re-designed by 2020 but according to President Donald Trump and Steven Mnuchin, it just isn’t a priority for right now.

People are outraged after it was announced that Harriet Tubman would be taking a backseat until at least 2026. Mnuchin, the treasury secretary, noted that Trump is more focused on other moves, foregoing the decision to feature a woman on an American banknote for the first time in 150 years.

“Right now, I am focused on the security features the US currency,” said Mnuchin during a congressional hearing on Wednesday. According to The Guardian, he added, “It’s not a decision that is likely to come until way past my term, even if I serve the second term for the president, so I am not focused on that at the moment.”

Instead, the $10 and $50 bills will be redesigned to prevent the exchange counterfeit currency. Understandably, people are not happy about the decision to delay Harriet Tubman’s $20 bill. What do you think?

Arby’s Affirms It Will Never Sell Plant-Based Products

As late, a set restaurants have announced they would be taking a jab at releasing vegan-friendly and plant-based products. Of the latter, we include major fast-food chains such as Burger King, McDonalds and more. The initiative seems granted considering the number folks turning to veganism, and this includes notable names like Beyonce & Jay Z. However, every movement brings forth the individual cases who dare to go against the grain and this time around, Arby’s is one them.

The fast-food joint recently released a statement stating they will never sell plant-based meat to its client. The announcement came in response to an article shared by VegNews which alleged the company was looking into adding plant-based recipes to its menu. As a meat-driven company, the former seemed unlike. Hence, Arby’s made sure to come through and shut it all the way down. A representative Arby’s precisely added: “Contrary to reports this week, Arby’s is not one the restaurant companies interested in working with Impossible Foods. The chances we will bring plant-based menu items to our restaurants, now or in the future, are absolutely impossible.”

It makes sense, after all, Arby’s slogan is “We Have The Meats” for a reason.

Country Fans Calling For a Wrangler Boycott After Lil Nas X Sponsorship

Lil Nas X has turned his Old Town Road lyric, “Cowboy hat from Gucci, Wrangler on my booty” into a lucrative partnership. But some country fans are upset about it.

‘Old Town Road’ has taken the music world by storm after it was first plucked by Justin Bieber.  The song got Lil Nas X , despite not having a single album release to his name.  It has also sparked several lucrative partnerships, one of which is with the Wrangler jeans company.

Wrangler has just unveiled the Lil Nas X Collection, which features several pairs of jeans with the iconic Wrangler logo plastered across the booty. Prices range from $79 for a pair of women’s cut-off shorts or $129 for a pair of 0936 Slim Fit Jeans with the logo.

Also part of the collection is a denim button down shirt with the words “Old Town Road” written across it.

Some country fans have been frothing at the mouth about how un-country the song is. Billboard even removed the song from its Top 100 Country list after some concerns were raised. Now some rabid country fans are calling for a boycott of Wrangler.

Their argument? “True cowboys” would never wear the new collection, or even like the song the collection is based upon.

Cue a massive eye-roll here. One fan is angry that Wrangler has somehow turned against him for partnering with a profitable artist.

“I went all Wrangler when Levi went anti-gun because wrangler was the true Cowboy brand… but of course, they can’t stay true to their consumers and try to appease a totally different audience that had to google what wrangler was…”

Many fans have mentioned switching from Levi’s after their stance on gun control. Now those same fans are criticizing Wrangler after this partnership was revealed. To their credit, Wrangler has been mum on the controversy directly, only offering a general statement about inclusivity.

“Since 1947, we’ve offered jeans for a variety of wearers and occasions. Our western heritage and offering quality product for all wearers will always be the very heart of the brand.”

Check out the Old Town Road remix with Billy Ray Cyrus below.

A Smaller Samsung Smart Speaker Passes Through FCC Testing

Several months after revealing the Galaxy Home, Samsung appears to have another smaller smart speaker on the way.

Recent FCC filing documents show a smaller Samsung smart speaker with a design that resembles its larger Galaxy Home cousin.  The smart speaker features AKG branding on the front with buttons for volume and other controls.  It also appears to feature a micro-USB port on the bottom of the device for charging.

The new Samsung smart speaker carries the model number SM-V310, which is similar to the Galaxy Home’s model number SM-V510. Aside from giving us a picture of the bowl-shaped device, not much else is known about it. The FCC filing does reveal that the speaker will support both WiFi and Bluetooth technology.

Pricing for the smaller Samsung Smart Speaker is currently unknown.

It’s sort of strange to see Samsung prepping another model of a smart speaker when the hasn’t gone on sale yet. Samsung has missed multiple deadlines in regards to the Galaxy Home, which was first introduced alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Back in February at the Samsung Unpacked event, Samsung let slip that they expected the speakers to launch in April. Now the South Korean company refuses to address any delay, saying it will launch in the “first half of 2019.” We’ve got about a month left before Samsung misses that deadline and pushes it into the second half of the year.

The Galaxy Home smart speaker is powered by Samsung’s own digital assistant called Bixby, but a recent survey shows that Bixby the least popular smart assistant in the United States. Only 4% of U.S. adults say they use Bixby, compared to 44% who say they use Siri, 30% for Google Assistant, and 17% for Alexa.

Samsung truly has an uphill battle to market these speakers. Samsung claims it has technology in its speakers that “intuitively moves a wave of sound directly towards you when asked.” Guess we’ll be waiting a bit longer to see just how accurate that statement is.
