Heads-UP #15: From uber flights to traditional chinese

  • Fannie : Uber wants to take its ride-hailing service to the skies. In 2020 you could book a flight like you take a Uber…

  • Marco: A cat has 32 muscles in each ear. I really think this is fascinating and I can’t wait to find another fact for next week.
  • Krish: The very first YouTube video was uploaded on 23rd April 2005. Yes, we’re all old.

  • Laura: There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with orange,purple and silver.
  • Lucile: The difference between Simplified and Traditional Chinese is quite subtle for someone who cannot read chinese characters, but it makes a huge difference when adapting client documents in both languages. Including fonts – one font for Simplified Chinese may not work with Traditional Chinese, and vice versa. Also, Chinese is to be read from left to right. But careful with the order: the syntax of sentences is different, and a 2-line title may be switched upside down.For instance:White Paper
    on Fine Watchmaking
    Is read:
    On Fine Watchmaking
    White Paper
The ‘White Paper on Fine Watchmaking’ in simplified Chinese.
  • Laurent: social media marketing as a practice actually started with crisis communication; the need for comprehensive monitoring capabilities therefore the rise of social listening technologies like Radian6 allowed agencies to scale up the business. Thank you RSS feeds (and bad buzz, ha!).
  • Andrea: A dentist invented the electric chair. Surprising isn’t it.
