• How To Post Longer Videos Onto Instagram Stories

    Instagram’s Stories feature was largely inspired by Snapchat’s own Stories feature, but it has since gone on to take on a life of its own. For those unfamiliar, Stories is a fun way of sharing short video clips or images that will disappear after 24 hours. This is useful if you have some kind of theme going on in your Instagram profile that you’d rather not disrupt with non-related posts.

    The drawback to Stories is that it has a limit in terms of the maximum number of seconds per Story, meaning that if you wanted to share a video longer than 15 seconds in length, you could be out of luck. However, this doesn’t mean that it isn’t impossible, and with this guide, we’ll show you how to post longer videos onto your Instagram Stories.

  • How Albert Einstein’s Son Tamed the Mississippi River

    From a mile up in the thick Louisiana summertime air, the structure looks so fragile, just a spidery wisp of a pale-colored highway bridge crossing an expanse of flat-brown river, the waters of the Mississippi brimming on one side and the outflow like slashing white brushstrokes running down on the other. Even closer, from as close as it is safe to go, it still doesn’t look like much, not too different from a thousand other dams.

    But this construction, improvidently christened half a century ago as the Old River Control Structure, is distinctly different, and tasked with the near impossible: controlling the course of America’s biggest and most important waterway. And yet the Mississippi, with its amply deserved reputation for wayward behavior, is with every new day resisting being controlled. The natural world in these parts has been altered greatly in recent decades. The Mississippi is no longer the river

  • Malaysia has loosened its quarantine measures. Does this mean it’s safe to go out for a jog?

    On May 4, the Malaysian government announced that the Movement Control Order (MCO) which was in place for close to two months would be loosened.

    With the conditional MCO (CMCO) extended to June 9, several sectors have been allowed to operate as Malaysia claimed to have flattened the coronavirus curve.

    While people are allowed to visit their friends and family, only not in large numbers, the only restriction currently in place is the inability for interstate travel.

    Due to this, many Malaysians who have been cooped up at home since March 18, 2020, have begun exercising outdoors.

    But here’s why you might wanna rethink this.

  • World’s longest-running cartoon switches to reruns due to COVID-19 disruption

    The broadcaster of the world’s longest-running cartoon has said it will have to switch to reruns from next week due to disruption to production caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Sazae-san, an anime series that airs every Sunday night and has been shown since 1969, won’t get any new episodes in the near future; as of this Sunday, Fuji TV will start to broadcast two-year-old reruns.

    Based on a manga series by Machiko Hasegawa, Sazae-san is one of the longest-running TV shows in history, with more than 2,500 episodes — each consisting of three separate stories. The plot, such as it is, revolves around the titular Japanese woman and her family going through the motions of life. With so many episodes, there’s space for the show to depict many traditional customs and events that take place in modern Japan, although it’s notable for not featuring advances in technology.
