This Valentine’s Day, Google wants to spread the love with a new playable Doodle that aims to raise awareness of the looming extinction of the pangolin.

The animated game takes one of the pangolin lovers on a journey through Ghana, India and China to teach them how to best romance their partner. In the process, the scaly creature learns how to make a chocolate cake with love, how to craft…

"It was an early morning launch and everyone got together and watched the livestream and we decided to eat pancakes and that's just kind of carried over for every single launch we've had so far." Read more...

Why Google's Valentine's Day game is a lot darker than you think
Hop over to Google.com, and you'll see a pair of enamored pangolins prepping for Valentine's Day this week Press play , and you can help the cute scaly mammals fall in love.
Perhaps you'll feel whimsical, or even a little happy.
Consider this your dose of cold, hard reality: The pangolin — a nocturnal, cat-sized anteater — is rolling toward extinction. 
SEE ALSO: Giant rats could help fight wildlife smuggling in Africa
Put another way, pangolins are "literally being eaten out of existence," according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
Native to Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, the termite-eating pangolins are thought to be the most trafficked animals in the world. Their meat is considered a luxury food in many cultures, and their scales are a common ingredient in traditional Asian medicines. Read more...

How to dump someone on Valentine's Day – or any day – without being a jerk
Some analysts say 14 February is a peak moment for breakups – so I asked people about how they would like to be broken up with, for a change
Last week, Merriam-Webster added more than a thousand words to the dictionary. Among them, “to ghost” was defined as abruptly cutting off all contact with someone by no longer accepting or responding to phone calls or messages.
With Valentine’s Day approaching – a time of year some data analysts have found is actually a peak moment for breakups – I got to thinking about that mundane, uncomfortable and sometimes heartbreaking step that is the breakup, and the etiquette that goes with it.

If you're the kind of person who likes to talk love on Valentine's Day , you can now stop annoying your Valentine's Day-hating peers (we know they're out there).
Apple has equipped Siri with some custom answers to Valentine's Day queries, from booking a romantic restaurant or choosing an appropriately saccharine playlist. It can even give you some ideas for (intentionally cringeworthy) pick-up lines, like: "Is your name Bluetooth? because I'm feeling a connection" and "Like the ideal vacuum, you're the only thing in my universe."

10 Ways To Celebrate Love For Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day gets a bad rep, but if you take away all the corny aspects (and no judgements if that’s your thing!), it’s simply a time to share love. Love for partners, friends, family, and strangers. And since our nation and society in general could use some love right about now, the holiday is extra fitting this year. Here are 10 ways to celebrate love this February 14th:
Cook a big batch of something delicious and take it to a local food bank or to someone who is going through a lot (think divorce, infertility or a recent birth, death, or just someone who deserves it). Stand up for what you believe in. Today is the perfect day to get involved with an organization that you feel strongly about. Call them right now! Take a long walk on the beach—with or without a loved one—and pick up trash. Clear your mind while showing your respect for the environment. Bring co-workers goodie bags. Who doesn’t love getting a goodie bag?! And they are super easy to make! Throw in some yummy soap, tea, and maybe a bottle of wine, and let the people you work with know that you care about them. Tip big. Out to dinner with your partner? Spread the love by leaving your server a gracious tip. Visit an animal shelter. Give the lonely dogs and cats at your local shelter some love and go pet and walk them. Treat yourself to a massage and alone time. Remember to love yourself! Pay it forward, or backwards. This is the day to buy coffee for the person behind you in line…and maybe even the person behind them! Get insight from another couple. Call up your aunt, grandma, or a family friend who has been married for decades. Let them tell you all about their love story and their biggest tips for a successful relationship. Then share that with your partner. Give up gossip. A spiritual detox was mentioned here recently, and to spread the love we must remove the hate. Simply let go of negative talk and instead be kind.
Hope you have a V-day full of love! For more ideas on how to treat yourself today, read 10 ways to practice self love .

Please for the Love of God Stop Buying Heart-Shaped Jewelry for Valentine’s Day
Hi there ladies, quick poll: Do you have any heart jewelry laying around? I say “laying around” because I’m willing to bet that if you do own something — a $29.99 heart-shaped pendant on a chain, perhaps — you aren’t wearing it.
That’s because, to put it bluntly, most heart-shaped jewelry isn’t cute. Sorry if I’m offending anyone here, but it’s the unfortunate truth. It’s generally terrible. At worst it makes the wearer look like she’s playing Pretty Pretty Princess , and at best it screams “I didn’t pick this out for myself!”
Which leads me to something else about your heart necklace that I’d put money on: You didn’t pick it out for yourself. It was a gift given to you by your grandma, or more likely by a man — a clueless man who has been tricked into thinking all women like heart jewelry, thanks to the sheer volume of saccharine, pandering ads run by Zales, Kay, and Jared around Valentine’s Day.
Despite what Jane Seymour would have you think, there are many of us that don’t like heart-shaped tokens of affection. I’ve got three heart pendant necklaces, all given to me by well-meaning boys, and all of which have been buried in a drawer for the past decade. A friend told me she was given two in elementary school, and she still suspects to this day that they were stolen from the boys’ mothers. (Honestly, I doubt they minded.)
As a gift, a piece of heart jewelry is a total and complete cop-out. Can you think of anything less personal and more cheesy at the same time? It’s a shallow expression of intimacy and love that doesn’t bother to consider what the giftee actually likes, unless she happens to be part of the small cadre of adult women who are actually super into heart pendants.
Just in case you think I’m a scorned lover, I promise that this is not a rage against a dumb boy for buying me ugly heart jewelry. Nope, it’s a PSA. It’s an open letter to try and save a few clueless bros from embarrassment, and a few would-be owners of heart necklaces the awkwardness of having to pretend you like something that you just really, really don’t.
It’s also an appeal to Zales to PLEASE, STOP TELLING PEOPLE WE LIKE THOSE HORRIBLE “INFINITY” HEART PENDANTS , and a plea to to Kay to j ust cut it out. Do you really need to make over a thousand varieties? Did you have to add angel wings , too? (It’s not just the mall brands, either. You’re an offender too, Tiffany . David Yurman, we see you .)
If you really want to buy jewelry for your significant other, I suggest waiting until V-Day passes — because come on, it’s the heart-shaped pendant of greeting card holidays — and buying her something legitimately cool that fits her aesthetic.
And should you need suggestions, we’ve got you so freaking covered .

Valentine’s Day Word Problems
1. On Valentine’s Day, you go to the mall and buy a skirt for your girlfriend and a “Doctor Who” Lego set for yourself. If the skirt cost fifty dollars, the Lego set cost seventy-eight dollars and fifty cents, and you’re thirty-four years old and don’t have health insurance, does that really justify your girlfriend staying up all night texting her ex after you’ve fallen asleep?

What the data says about Valentine’s Day and chatbots
GUEST:
In honor of Valentine’s Day, we took a look at the difference in usage between men and women on Facebook Messenger bots over the past two months.
Who uses bots more: Men or women?
On average, about 63 percent of bot users are men and 28 percent are women, with the remaining 9 percent unknown or undetected.
Men tend to be more engaged than women in terms of sessions per user per month — on average they have about 50 percent more sessions. Women, however, tend to message more per session – about 12 percent more messages in each session.
In regards to the number of bots men and women use: While the vast majority of users have only used one bot, about 14 percent of men and 10.6 percent of women use more than one bot.
A picture says a thousand words
We examined images sent in to Facebook bots to see if there are any differences between men and women. We ran the images through Amazon’s Rekognition API for image detection, which detects labels and a confidence level. Below are the top labels detected with confidence levels over 90 percent.
While both men and women send a lot of selfies to bots, women tend to skew a bit heavily to sending selfies. The labels Person, Human, People, and Portrait are all detected in selfies. One thing that was interesting is the label “Electronics” — why are women taking pictures of electronics? Do you know why that is? It turns out this indicates when a selfie is taken in the mirror, so the photo contains an image of the phone, which triggers the “Electronics” label. Guys tend to take more photos of cars and motorcycles than women do, which is why you see Vehicle and Car as well.
Speaking of selfies…
Another interesting takeaway from looking at the images sent in to bots is the NSFW images — our poor eyes!
It turns out both men and women send NSFW images to bots, including naked selfies; however it’s predominantly men — about 90 percent of the NSFW images come from men.
Luckily, the overall percentage of NSFW images is quite low — only about 2.5 percent of images are NSFW, and only about 6 percent of bots receive them.
The interesting thing is, even though the percentage of users and images is quite low, when someone does send an NSFW image, they send it a lot!! The average NSFW image is sent almost 5 times, compared to once for a “normal,” non-NSFW image. In fact, some users have even sent the same NSFW image over 100 times! Apparently once you get over the hurdle of sending a naked selfie, you’re OK with sending it a lot.
Bots, how do we love thee
Finally, we looked at user sentiment to see if there are any differences between men and women.
It turns out, on average, per bot, the sentiment for men and women is about the same — how they feel about a bot, whether positive or negative, tends to be about the same.
Since this is Valentine’s Day and love is in the air, we took a look at how many users express their love for the bots they’re using. It turns out women are a bit more likely, at 1.4 percent versus about 1 percent of men, to tell the bots they’re using that they love it!
