Pandora now lets you share music and podcasts to your Instagram Stories

Pandora now lets you share music and podcasts to your Instagram Stories Pandora today announced a new integration with Instagram that will allow users to share their favorite music and podcasts to their Instagram Story. The feature comes well over a year after Spotify launched a similar integration with Instagram Stories, and only days after Spotify introduced sharing to Facebook Stories, as well. In Pandora's case, accessing the feature is also a quick and easy process -- you just tap the "Share" button from the Now Playing screen in the app, then choose "Instagram Stories" as the destination.

The lesson she’ll teach is an important one — and it’s kindness. In the months and years after Cora Holland was killed aboard the doomed jetliner, Stephanie Holland said her People she had never met have shared their memories of her mother. Last year on Sept. 11 , someone put flowers on her desk.

She’ll honor her 52-year-old mother — killed on 9/11 aboard American Airlines Flight 11 — by telling her students at the Merriam School in Acton about a day that changed America forever.

“I want to go to work,” said Holland, who usually attended memorials on this day. “I need to do what feels right.”

Snapchat is Spotify's latest music-sharing option

Snapchat is Spotify's latest music-sharing option Spotify addicts can soon share what tunes or podcasts they're listening to with their Snapchat friends. Through the share menu on songs, albums, playlists, artist profiles and podcasts, you'll be able to post whatever's grabbing your attention to Snapchat and Snapchat Stories if you have the latter app installed. If you see one of those shares in your Snapchat feed, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap to start listening to your friend's recommendation. The Snapchat share option will be available in the iOS and Android Spotify apps soon.

11 , 2001. There are people currently serving in the U.S. military who weren't born when that act of evil took place – and the military still has thousands of troops in Afghanistan, the home base of the Taliban-supported al-Qaida attack on the United States that took nearly 3,000 American lives.

This 30 minute video is a good primer to share with friends and family who think YOU are a crazy “conspiracy theorist”. Recommended viewing. Which means the UK/US/Israel will have to stage another event on the scale of 9 / 11 to counter the brushfire this report will ignite.

The lesson she’ll teach is an important one — and it’s kindness.

In the months and years after Cora Holland was killed aboard the doomed jetliner, Stephanie Holland said her family was overwhelmed by an outpouring of support from kindhearted strangers around the world who sent cards and stuffed animals.

People she had never met have shared their memories of her mother. Last year on Sept. 11, someone put flowers on her desk. The other day, a bank teller told Holland her mother was the “nicest person,” something she hears often from people in Sudbury, where her mother lived.

“Kindness goes a long way,” Holland, 48, told me. “With a day full of so many horrific images and memories, kindness is what I’ve chosen to focus on.”

Holland spent last Sept. 11 in the classroom, too. She read “14 Cows for America,” a true story about a tribe in Kenya that gave 14 cows — their most sacred animals — to the U.S. after the attacks.

September 11, 2008 | 7:54am. TODAY’s joint visit to Ground Zero may give the impression that John McCain and Barack Obama share a common analysis of the causes of 9 / 11 and how to deal with its legacy. They don’t. The divide starts with the question: Why was America attacked?

On the tenth anniversary of the 9 / 11 terrorist attacks, it is fitting that we reflect on what has changed in America. Of course, no one doubts that 9 / 11 In this sense, there were many lessons that we learned from the attacks. We were forced to confront reality head on and question this false vision of life.

Holland has the same group of students again this year. She plans on showing them a Nickelodeon special, “What Happened? The Story of September 11, 2001,” as well as a slide show of Sept. 11 memorials. She’ll share photos of her mother. She’ll ask her students to do something kind.

She also encourages her students to devote time to a cause they believe in. Since the Sept. 11 attacks, Holland has run the Boston Marathon three times and raised more than $18,000 for Boston Medical Center’s Good Grief Program, which helped Sept. 11 families.

“I’ve always tried to look at it as how can this make me grow,” Holland said. “It’s always going to be a part of my fabric and my history but I don’t want to let it define me or my life.”

Cora Holland was a huge Red Sox fan. She loved her family and loved to cook, and was known for her salsa and guacamole. When she was killed, Stephanie Holland’s son, Drew Brodney, was 2 years old and her daughter, Amelia Brodney, was almost 4 months. Now, Drew is a 20-year-old junior at Clark University in Worcester and Amelia is an 18-year-old freshman at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

What are the lessons ? They are legion. I offer one — a hard one. It did not occur to me until ten years after 9 / 11 — in 2011, soon after my return from Afghanistan and my third combat deployment. I was attending a neighborhood 4th of July BBQ. I was sharing “war stories” with a friend and Marine

The lesson of 9 — 11 is that the world has changed, so we must change our policy for civilization to survive. Of course honorable people can disagree over how best to deal with a world in which a small number of people can kill a large number of people very quickly

Holland tells them all about their grandmother, how she loved going to the movies and shopping for her family. After the attacks, Cora Holland’s family found dresses in all different colors for baby Amelia in the back of her car. “She couldn’t go to the store without buying one of them something,” Holland said.

Holland’s students know all about her mother, too. “They’ve gotten to know her not just as this person they know who died, but also somebody who got me my first record when I was little and taught me to love ‘Sesame Street,’” Holland said.

What a wonderful way to honor her mother and teach young people the importance of being kind. The 9/11 Memorial website offers lesson plans for today, so does the National Education Society. They all give advice on how to educate a generation of kids with no memory of that day.

Stephanie Holland said she’ll ask her students to give someone a hug. Or say “Hi” to a student sitting alone in the cafeteria. “One act of kindness,” she added, “can make a person’s day.”

iOS 13's Audio Sharing feature is coming to more Beats headphones .
If you fondly remember the days of plugging in a headphone splitter and listening to music together with a friend, iOS 13 offers a similar option for Bluetooth headphones with Audio Sharing. Soon that feature will be available on a wide variety of Beats headphones as well as Apple AirPods. Audio Sharing allows pairing two sets of headphones to the same iPhone or iPod, so you and another person can listen to the same tune or watch a movie together. It requires an iPhone 8 or above, and is activated through the Bluetooth menu in Settings.
