    Snapchat Introduces Context Cards, Adds Information From Geotagged Photos


    Snapchat started out as a spunky little social media platform for friends, quickly sending snapshots that lasted no more than 10 seconds and, poof, they were gone. Slowly but surely, the platform has started to become actually useful – with the introduction of Snap Maps, the platform was used to keep track of hot spots during the recent hurricanes in Texas and Florida (though this was not its intended use, it’s a wildly beneficial after thought). User engagement has even gone up 40% since the function’s introduction.

    Now, Snapchat has introduced Context Cards, made to give contextual information for geotagged photos and videos. The idea behind context cards being that you can look up information about a location, especially restaurants and stores, without leaving the app. Simply swipe up on the geotag and you can view menus, make reservations, call a location, read reviews and more – kind of like you would on Google.

    Partners supplying information for the cards include Foursquare, OpenTable, TripAdvisor, and Lyft, and will grow over time, Snaps says.

    According to the Verge, the context cards will primarily show recommendations from anonymous, crowdsourced engines – at least for now.

    Watch the promotional video for Snap’s context cards below.

      The worlds of electronic music and fashion collide as enigmatic producer ZHU teams up with Adidas to promote the globally recognized brand’s winter collection.
      ZHU’s latest release, “Waters of Monaco,” may not be out in America just yet, but in China, the delightfully deep new track is already making quite the stir. Adidas’ fresh new Pure winter collection pairs perfectly with ZHU’s ultra-suave production style.
      Seemingly cutting edge and classic all at once, the video for “Waters of Monaco” evokes a futuristic appeal rooted in a timeless style. Clean lines and smooth kicks take center stage as Chinese supermodel Angelababy brings a smoldering intensity to the project. As one of the premier tastemakers in the world of dance music, it is not surprising to see ZHU expand his influence into the realm of global style.

      A considerable amount of time has passed since the Oregon Eclipse Gathering,  but exclusive sets continue to appear online as artists upload their live acts or, in some cases, even go as far as to re-record their sets.
      Now former attendees and eclipse chasers from around the globe can now enjoy sets from the likes of Bassnectar, Minnesota, CloZee, and many more, organized into stage-by-stage playlists thanks to one SoundCloud user. From the deep, dark tech house of the Sky Stage, to the psytrance of the Earth Stage, to the festival’s bass head haven at The Moon Stage, over 50 live and re-recorded sets are available for stream from Oregon’s Global Eclipse Gathering, held Aug. 17-23, 2017.
      Though international eclipse festivals are often based around trance and downtempo, make no mistake that the bass, jam, and house acts are actually considered guests in this awe-inspiring, transformative festival experience.

      Researchers at the University of Alabama recently published a study that seems to indicate taking psychedelic drugs such as LSD and mushrooms lowers the chance of the user committing a violent crime.
      Published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, individuals who had consumed psychedelics were found to be 12% less likely to commit assault, 18% less likely to be arrested for a violent crime, and 27% less likely to commit a theft than those who had not taken the drugs — numbers the study contends are “reliable” enough to establish positive effects for those who indulge.
      From 2002–2014, 480,000 individuals were surveyed for the study. The study additionally found that, for lifetime users of hallucinogens, 47–68% were more likely to sell drugs and describe those activities as beneficial to their clients for the substances medicinal and therapeutic qualities.
      The research also indicates that drug users who partake in cocaine and ecstasy are more likely to commit crimes than others.
