Phones With Flappy Bird Installed Are Selling for Thousands | The World As We Know It | Scoop.it
Even though Flappy Bird has been taken down from the App Store and Google Play Store, people are still after the viral hit and are paying crazy amounts of money for it.

Arianna Smith's insight:

This is just too insane! I never actually played the game 'Flappy Bird', but just last week everyone was talking about it. It's amazing how obsessed people can get into something. This article isn't really in-dept but it does make a statement. How easily manipulated people can get. The app was originally free, and now some people are paying $90,000 for it? That's completely unheard of. Although now I slightly wish I got this game; I am shocked at the reaction and determination some people have to still play it.

A Wedding in Intensive Care

A Wedding in Intensive Care | The World As We Know It | Scoop.it
Doctors often share their patients’ sorrow, but rarely their joys.
Arianna Smith's insight:

So sweet! The mother who had cancer was able to see her daughter get married at the hospital. It's truly touching, and I love it when the doctor said, 'we usually share the patients sorrow, not their joy.'

Arianna Smith's insight:

During the oscars this past weekend, a group came together creating the "Most epic of all Selfies." It has been re-tweeted and so on constantly since then. And I'm not going to lie;  it's pretty awesome. But the real story people keep bringing up is how Peter, Lupita Nyong'o’s non-celebrity brother, was involved in the photo. There saying that he has now become part of history because of this. Which is pretty cool, because he is indirectly a celebrity now.

Women ski jumpers finally get their Olympic moment
USA TODAY
SOCHI, Russia – After years of struggle for acceptance, women's ski jumping is making its Olympic debut.

Via Heidi Neltner
Arianna Smith's insight:

After losing the lawsuits last winter Olympics, they finally are allowing women ski jumping! This is a great moment in history, because women are getting more rights. I don't actually understand why they wouldn't allow women to participate before, it's not necessarily manly. But I'm glad there allowing women to have this chance. Though this article is about this being done, it's mostly centered around  Sarah Hendrickson of the USA. She tore her ACL and MCL and they are difficult to recover. She's not dropping out though, because she want's to be part of this moment in history. So hopefully her knees don't mes it up for her. Team USA or not, I want everyone involved in the Olympics to have there chance to shine! :)

BuzzFeed and Time magazine: The next big thing always starts out looking like a toy, and media is no exception

BuzzFeed and Time magazine: The next big thing always starts out looking like a toy, and media is no exception | The World As We Know It | Scoop.it
In an internal memo, BuzzFeed founder Jonah Peretti compares his upstart media company to the venerable newsmagazine Time. Is there any truth to this comparison? More than some members of the mainstream media would probably like to admit
Arianna Smith's insight:

BuzzFeed could possibly be the next big thing?! Yes according to this article, all you need is big ideas and lots of hope and it can happen! Using valid reasoning, like how Times started for example, this article was made to declare that the 'little people' can make it big. It's sort of inspiring so I wish them the best.
