Fanta Pouring Big Bucks Into Vine Video Comedy Series

Fanta Pouring Big Bucks Into Vine Video Comedy Series | Writing mag | Scoop.it

...The first episode of "Fanta For The Funny," which rolls out Friday on CollegeHumor.com and across Fanta's social and digital channels, is comprised of dozens of Vine clips depicting gags and pratfalls from some of the platform's most popular personalities. There's no host of the show, just the brief video clips organized into vignettes around topics. In the first episode, Fanta doesn't actually appear in the Vine videos, though its branding is interspersed several times between segments. The series will run over the course of six weeks.

 

Brands are increasingly looking to platforms like Vine, a rising social media service owned by Twitter, to promote themselves and their products. On Vine, users post six-second clips, also called Vines. Despite -- or perhaps because of -- these time constraints, Vine has emerged as fertile ground for comedy, with hordes of young people posting humorous clips. Already, companies like General Mills, Ford and Virgin Mobile have tapped Vine stars for their campaigns....

40 Maps That Explain The Internet

40 Maps That Explain The Internet | Writing mag | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, August 22, 1:00 PM
Here's why the Internet works, "... because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network.  (So far...)   This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.

 questiionDid 20th-century pharmaceutical and technological advances shape modern sexual behaviors?

Mick D Kirkov's insight:

So the question, so the answer: Yes of course, they did but not only.

The human of today is more liberated from the prejudices of the past, maybe thanks to the lived in the 20th century struggle for socialism and women’s liberation, maybe thanks to the antibiotics and maybe even thanks to the hippies and Poona. Anyway nowadays one can see a modern woman initiating to caress a modern man on the beach (click this https://twitter.com/MichailKirkov/status/488762777675509760 or rather go to this "beach of the couples" to see them in acting, a thing that was absolutely unimaginable before).

Truth is, Italy has become a model to imitate in the way ingredients are to be prepared, cooked and then consumed in company.

intoHistory's curator insight, August 20, 11:01 AM

Our vision about Italian culinary traditions is full of clichés. The historical reality has little to do with our image of the farmers’ simple and genuine lifestyle. Refined, varied and healthy food was the privilege of an elite. Life was tough and creativity was rather a way to hide the precarious and poor dietary conditions of the population...

Imaging Intercourse, 1493 | The Scientist Magazine® | Writing mag | Scoop.it

For centuries, scientists have been trying to understand the mechanics of human intercourse. MRI technology made it possible for them to get an inside view.

Mick D Kirkov's insight:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Leonardo was wrong).

 

Dr. Pek Van Andel, who won a Nobel Prize for making the first MRI images of a couple's sex. Here's a video of that event http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVAdCKaU3vY#t=37 (from http://www.the-scientist.com//?articles.view/articleNo/40400/title/Sex-in-a-Scanner/ thx http://www.the-scientist.com/ ).

 

Objective: To find out... whether former and current ideas about the anatomy during sexual intercourse (and during female sexual arousal) are based on assumptions or on facts.
