Watch this stunning video of a tornado captured by drone

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 14:30

A drone captured this absolutely bonkers footage of a tornado from the air on Tuesday. It followed the small twister for several minutes as it traversed open land near Sulphur, Oklahoma.

It's stunning to see the tornado churning across the landscape for several minutes before finally dying out. It's especially cool at about the 1:30 mark when it rips right over a pond, sucking up water into its vortex. 

The video was captured by Brandon Clement, a storm chaser who caught a break as a lack of rain and hail gave his drone a clear, unobstructed view of the tornado.  

Clement told the Washington Post, “It wasn’t an overly strong tornado and didn’t do any damage, so my reaction seeing this was pure joy." Read more...

Waze app can tell you how to get to Sesame Street

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 14:00

It's been 50 years of sunny days sweeping the clouds away. The beloved children's show Sesame Street has been on air for half a century. 

To celebrate this major milestone, a New York City street is permanently becoming Sesame Street and you'll be able to get to Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie, and even Oscar the Grouch's stomping grounds. Instead of asking someone to tell you how to get to Sesame Street, you can plug it into the Waze navigation app.

Waze users in the New York City area can get directions to the fictitious home of Bird Bird's nest, Oscar the Grouch's trash can, as well as other friends, educators, and special guests. In-app messages will pop up on Wednesday afternoon about the newly-named street in the city for anyone in the area using the app. Read more...

9 of the best laptops for Windows 10 in the UK

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 13:48

Although MacBooks have grown in popularity over the past decade, Microsoft is making a bit of a comeback among consumers with the release of Windows 10 a few years ago. In fact, there are some benefits of using Windows 10 over MacOS X, such as functionality, ease of use, and touch-ability. Believe it or not, you can actually use many Windows 10 laptops like tablets.

Moreover, Windows-based laptops are catching up with MacBooks in terms of design and looks. PC laptops have always gotten a bad name since they have historically prioritised function over style thanks to cheap materials and awful looking displays. Apple computers, on the other hand, integrate form and style into one beautiful machine.  Read more...

8 of the best curling irons and hair wands in the UK

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 13:33

Looking for the right curling iron can be overwhelming — there are literally hundreds you could choose from. You have to consider your hair type, the kind of curl you want, ease of use, price, material, and more just to find a product to style your hair.

First let’s talk size — because size actually does matter when it comes to styling your hair. Curling irons range in size and can create tiny spirals or big, loose curlsLiana Le, a celebrity stylist at Marie Robinson Salon in New York, said that she prefers one-inch tools to achieve a beachy, undone look, and a 1.25-inch size for a softer, pulled out wave look. For tighter curls you should opt for a three-quarter-inch iron or smaller. If you’re unsure of what size you want, a one-inch curling iron is a safe bet for most hair types and lengths. Read more...

Why Dany's dragons need to die for 'Game of Thrones' to end well

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 13:05

When Daenerys Targaryen emerged from the funeral pyre of Khal Drogo with three baby dragons in the Season 1 finale of Game of Thrones, it was clear that the game had changed. History had relegated dragons to icons of the past, terrifying relics of a dynasty long gone and a magic that no longer existed. Over the course of the series Dany and her dragons have only become more powerful, but now that the series finale looms it’s starting to seem like the only way this story ends is with all of Daenerys’ flappy little fire-children dead.

Even as one dragon has fallen to the Night King (and then fallen to Arya, who felled the Night King), Dany’s two remaining dragons are dramatically overpowered. They’re amazing allies to have in a war, but regardless of how the dust settles on Westeros there’s historical precedent that shows the world is nearly always better off without dragons. In fact, the two times dragons have previously died out have served as turning points for social chance, and their deaths always force a reset on political power. Read more...

Startling photos show torched California land roaring back to life

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 13:00

The church survived and so did the train depot. But the rest of Paramount Ranch is a mangled yard of twisted metal and charred wood. The National Park Service fenced off the ruins of the replica 19th-century Western town, which throughout its 70-year history in the Malibu hills has served as a classic set for the likes of HBO’s Westworld, countless Hollywood westerns, and weddings. When I visited the rubble in April, a man in his 60s stood beside me, peering through the metal fence at the leveled buildings. “Our daughter got married out here,” he said, wearily

Six months earlier, the Woolsey Fire ripped through the mock town’s saloons, mining shops, and Sheriff’s buildings. The blaze burned nearly 100,000 acres and scorched 88 percent of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which is home to Paramount Ranch. It was the largest fire in the park’s history, and it left a scar that is easily visible from space. The Woolsey Fire followed in the footsteps of 2017’s nearby Thomas Fire, which for eight months held the title as the biggest wildfire in California history — until, that is, it was eclipsed by yet another giant blaze, the Mendocino Complex fire Read more...

Uber's driver reward program goes bigger – and global

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 12:00

Last year Uber rolled out a rewards program for its  drivers in a few U.S. cities and offered full tuition for online courses at Arizona State University for high-level drivers. Now 20 more cities as well as drivers in Mexico for Uber Eats can get in on the rewards.

The program, called Uber Pro, gives perks for different status levels based on ratings and number of trips: partner, gold, platinum, and diamond. For higher status drivers on Pro, free ASU online tuition toward a degree was a perk that could be used by the driver or transferred to family members.

Zac Efron describes his scary skiing accident in painful detail

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 10:26

It's hard to imagine the great and the good of Hollywood doing themselves a mischief. But, turns out even A-list celebrities fall down every once in a while.

Zac Efron told Jimmy Kimmel about the time he went skiing and injured himself during a fall. 

Efron said he was skiing down a mountain and having a great time, when all of a sudden he realised he was going quite fast. 

"I looked at the side and I was like, I'm going 35 miles per hour. I'm going fast, this is like the best skiing I've ever done, I wanna powder ski for the rest of my life," he said. 

Just when Efron was thinking about slowing down for a second, he went flying. One of his skis came off, and he disconnected his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his knee. Thankfully, after 6 weeks of recuperation, he's OK now.  Read more...
