BALTIMORE — A largely peaceful protest over the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a spinal cord injury in police custody, gave way to scattered scenes of chaos here on Saturday night, as demonstrators smashed a downtown storefront window, threw rocks and bottles and damaged police cruisers, while officers in riot gear broke up skirmishes and made 12 arrests near Camden Yards.
Shortly before 10 p.m., Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake convened a news conference at City Hall, where she appeared with several others — including Mr. Gray’s twin sister, Fredericka; a prominent pastor, Jamal Bryant; and City Councilman Brandon Scott — to appeal for calm. By that time the disturbances had largely settled.
Mr. Gray’s sister, appearing composed less than 48 hours before her brother’s scheduled funeral, spoke only briefly, saying, “Freddie Gray would not want this. Freddie’s father and mother does not want the violence.”
Hours earlier, a racially diverse and mostly calm crowd of hundreds — and by some estimates more than 1,000 — marched through the streets, clogging intersections, carrying signs and shouting, “All night, all day, we’re gonna fight for Freddie Gray!” They made their way from the Gilmor Homes — the squat brick public West Baltimore housing development where Mr. Gray was arrested on April 12 — through the sparkling downtown harbor, a major tourist attraction here, before assembling on a plaza at City Hall.

"One of the most highly anticipated Hip-Hop albums of 2015, To Pimp A Butterfly, combines the nostalgic sentiment of what solidified Hip-Hop's place in our hearts with the equally invigorating and innovative flair of Compton native Kendrick Lamar. Run P.'s samples project is a tour through the album to not only appreciate its foundation but its purpose as well. Those who are fans of the samples series will not be disappointed by the sonic experience of Black culture, music, and power that bore this project into existence." - Run P.

Apple rolled out new developer betas for OS X and iOS Monday — which included, amongst other things, the first look at a more diverse set of emoji.
The move comes a few months after the Unicode Consortium, the group that governs the emoji standard, proposed an update to address emoji diversity.
SEE ALSO: Who Controls Emoji Anyway?
The new emoji options include different skin color and hair combinations for a slew of characters. And although much of the reaction to the new emoji has been positive, some users — particularly in Asian communities — are upset and confused by the default emoji skin color, which is yellow.
So what's going on with those yellow-faced emoji? What is that trying to represent? And how did the skin colors get picked anyway?
That's what we're here to sort out.
Understanding how Unicode is addressing emoji diversity

The builders of a $22 billion burrito empire—the founder, his father, his college buddies, key execs, and a couple of pig farmers—open up about how they won the fast-food future. And yes, they dish about McDonald's.
By Kyle Stock and Venessa Wong
By restaurant industry standards, Chipotle Mexican Grill does countless things wrong. Its outlets aren’t in the busiest locations. It spends too much money on food. It doesn’t serve breakfast; it doesn’t do drive-throughs, franchises, or even much in the way of advertising. It almost never adds anything new to its menu. Employees still cut all the tomatoes — hundreds of thousands of pounds a day — by hand. It is, in so many ways, the anti-McDonald’s.
Which is strange, particularly when you consider that Chipotle spent roughly eight years under McDonald’s corporate arches. McDonald’s early investment in the burrito chain gave it capital to grow, an inside look at ultra-efficient supply-chain economics, the know-how it needed to manage its expansion from 13 stores in 1998 to almost 500 in 2006. For its investment — roughly $340 million by the time of Chipotle’s initial public offering — McDonald’s got a nice little return. It turned out to be the short end of the stick.
In the years since their split, Chipotle’s rapid growth and consistently astonishing financial results have made it a darling of investors. Its commitment to fresh, high-quality ingredients at only slightly higher prices has helped to define a new wave of “fast casual” dining. And McDonald’s … well, everyone knows what’s happened to McDonald’s. As consumers’ tastes changed, the chain became the poster-child for America’s obesity epidemic. Sales slumped, and, recently, the stock price followed. Last week, McDonald's announced that Chief Executive Don Thompson would step down on March 1 and be replaced by Chief Brand Officer Steve Easterbrook. The incoming CEO has one job: to get the iconic chain back on some kind of track at a time when Chipotle and its disciples are ascendant.

Apple has begun selling iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models in the U.S. without a contract or SIM card from a wireless carrier.
This makes it possible to buy an iPhone without going through any sort of middleman, and without any long-term obligation to a carrier. The phones are "unlocked," which means they can be activated for use with any carrier's SIM card: AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, etc. Of course, they're a lot more expensive than buying a phone with a contract — an iPhone 6 with a two-year contract starts at $199.

Apple is reportedly working on a major redesign of the MacBook Air.
The unconfirmed report states that Apple plans to redesign the MacBook Air into a 12-inch device that will be narrower than the current 11-inch MacBook Air but taller to accommodate a larger screen.
It adds that the new MacBook Air would have a slimmer bezel surrounding the screen and keyboard, and would also be thinner and lighter. The report, from 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman, a journalist with a healthy track record in Apple-related leaks and scoops, cites "sources within Apple" who have used internal prototypes of the computer.
The report continues that to achieve a smaller size, Apple might be jettisoning the MagSafe connector, removing the SD card slot and getting rid of full-size USB ports. The screen would be higher resolution, which is a feature Mac owners have wanted from the MacBook Air for quite some time.
9to5Mac commissioned some mock-ups of the purported device (remember, these are just mock-ups, not leaked images or actual product renders.)
