Instagram video is now a real thing and will be part of our daily lives. People can download on iOS and Android devices as we speak.
With the new feature, people may record videos that are up to 15 seconds long. The interface looks almost exactly the same. However, Instagram went and added 13 brand new filters specifically for videos.
Instagram took their time and worked along side "video scientists" to create a stabilization feature called Cinema.
Video shared by United States Customs and Border Protection agency (USCBP) Chief Patrol Agent Robert Garcia shows a car driving into the United States from Quebec by taking an illegal shortcut across a library lawn that straddles the international boundary.
The Haskell Free Library, which famously sits between Derby Line, Vermont and Stanstead, Quebec, has become a symbol of the divided border community.
In what could only be described as a fated win — with the game happening on home ice on Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, during 2021's last strawberry moon — thousands of Montrealers who crowded L'Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal in the celebration were scattered by Montreal police.
A video taken on June 10 appears to show a Montreal police officer kneeling on the neck and back of a Black teenager while conducting an arrest.

In a statement sent to MTL Blog, police claimed the teenager in the video was in possession of a taser.
The SPVM said "several statements of offence were issued" during its intervention in the alleged altercation between the 15 individuals. Another individual was allegedly in possession of bear repellent, according to the police report.
"Individuals were arrested for obstructing the work of a peace officer and for possession of a weapon, then released via summons, since they are minors," it continued.
The SPVM said that though "the neck control technique [was] not involved in this situation, it is part of the National Use of Force Model and that the ÉNPQ [École nationale de police du Québec] teaches it to police officers during their initial training."
Regarding the action of kneeling on the teenager's neck, the SPVM added that "certain types of use of force require that police officers write a report and submit it to their supervisor and then to their unit manager, who must then verify whether the use of force was justified."
Police also said a "review of the police response and use of force in this event is currently underway" with "support from the Use of Force Unit and its master instructors."
"Following the review," the SPVM continued, "the [neighbourhood post unit] manager will take the appropriate follow-up actions, as required."
