Swedish diplomat wants you to know he doesn’t like Florida’s death penalty

http://twitter.com/#!/carlbildt/status/367390190102671360

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt is angry at Florida. He’s tweeting out a link to the European Union’s condemnation of the execution of mass murderer John Ferguson.

Not a word about the eight people that Ferguson killed execution-style, by the way. Not even so much as a passing nod to their deaths. Just that Florida is bad and this poor man should not have been killed.

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised at Mr. Bildt’s tone-deaf shot across the Atlantic. Apparently, he’s such an egomaniac that former President George W. Bush was coached to pretend to be impressed by him and American diplomats were told to play on his self-image to “keep him in a good mood.”

It only stands to reason that he wishes to preach from his ivory tower to all of us immoral cretins, since he is such a legend in his own mind.

They Were Out Boating When A Hippo Did The Last Thing You Would Expect

Hippos are known for being kind of silly looking, but they’re actually incredibly dangerous.

In fact, the hippopotamus is the most dangerous land animal in Africa, and they kill more humans each year than crocodiles do. They’re known for lurking in the water, but you might be surprised to know that hippos can’t actually swim. Rather, they do little moon walks under water and propel themselves upward by pushing off the bottom.

Whether or not these enormous creatures can swim, they sure can move quickly. In 2015, a boater was able to catch some incredible footage of a hippo charging after them and it is absolutely insane.

I can’t even believe how fast it’s moving. I’ve watched this like 30 times!

Well, that hippo certainly lives up to the dangerous hype. I wouldn’t want that thing charging at me! Share this if you were totally amazed.

6 ways HQ Trivia could open up to advertisers

We play HQ Trivia every day at 3. Around 3:08, we Google in unison and say something along the lines of, “A giraffe only sleeps 30 minutes a day. Looks like we’re all out…” Then we talk about how HQ Trivia doesn’t have any advertising and speculate: What if it did?

Given the game’s popularity in the industry, we’re probably not the only ones. It seems like a goldmine for brands, the rare opportunity to reach people who they know are paying attention.

“Brands pay millions of dollars for Super Bowl ads because they know people are tuned in,” says Justin Mauldin, CEO of Salient PR and former marketing director at multiple mobile gaming companies. “Companies will pay tons of money just to run polls to figure out how many people saw their brand or understand their tagline. With HQ Trivia, it’s even more quantifiable because you know exactly how many people are playing. You could run advertising and research at the same time.”

Will HQ Trivia have traditional video ads? Probably not

With 10 seconds to answer a question, HQ Trivia moves so quickly, multitasking and second-screening are virtually impossible. When Scott Rogowsky (or Sarah Pribis, but mostly Scott) talks, you listen.

That level of engagement is more than an advertiser can hope for. On the surface, commercials between questions seems like low-hanging fruit. However, Mauldin points out that HQ Trivia’s format is too polished and streamlined for something with so much potential to feel disruptive.

“Ads in between questions will certainly generate impressions, but advertisers probably won’t see a lot of value,” agrees Daniele Bernardi, Head of Platform Solutions at Sailthru. “Those ads often force you to watch a video for 30 seconds or press a button that opens the App Store, which takes you out of the app you’re already in—and engaged with.”

More subtle (and likely) ways brands can get on board

HQ Trivia is funded by a venture capitalist and doesn’t have an advertising model at the moment. If that changes, native advertising seems like a much more feasible option. What are some other area in the game brands can sponsor?

1. Questions

The first two questions in any HQ Trivia game are typically layups. One recent example is, “Habitat for Humanity is a charity known for building what?” with luxury yachts, monster truck courses and houses as the options. “Habitat for Humanity” could easily be replaced with “Royal Caribbean,” for a price. With hundreds of thousands of people logged in, there’s no telling how much a brand would be willing to pay to sponsor a HQ Trivia question.

“One advantage of that is that HQ Trivia owns the relationship with the brand,” says Bernardi. “The brand doesn’t have to curate the question, but it can have some kind of resonance, like if Nissan sponsored a generic question about cars.”

2. Lightning rounds

Mark Gorman, CEO of Matrix Solutions, thinks the hypothetical brands sponsoring HQ Trivia games can go a step further than branded questions. The game could potentially also sell sponsored rounds for additional prizes following the regular game.

It’s normal to see the number of players drop throughout the game. If people get eliminated, do they want to keep watching? But with a sponsored lighting round, they may, as they wait for their second chance, increasing engagement and time spent in-app.

“Samsung could sponsor 10 bonus questions around electronics or mobile phones with a prize of $25,000 or $50,000,” says Gorman. “Hershey could similarly sponsor a special Valentine’s Day round with a higher winning value on top of a successful promotion for all players who partake in that extra round.

3. Co-hosts

Every once in a while, HQ Trivia has a special guest star, like Bert from Sesame Street or Olympic figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi. A brand mascot like Chester Cheetah could potentially serve as a co-host, too.

“Likewise, what if Hershey Kisses found a way to give HQ its first kiss on Valentine’s Day?” adds Gorman. “A brand’s out-of-the-box message, like a Hershey’s ‘kiss’ can be an integration point with a new media channel in order to maximize revenue through a number of first experiences that show organizers can be pitching to brands for authentic integration.”

4. Extra lives

If you get one question wrong in HQ Trivia, you’re out of the game. Exceptions are made for people who have extra lives, which are granted when you sign up a new player. If you complete an activity, you could earn an extra life, brought to you by Spotify.

5. The opening screen

Before the game starts, there’s a few minutes of welcome screen. Mauldin points out that “instead of shapes flying by, there could be a new flavor of Doritos.”

6. Product placements

Though he’s known for his suits, Scott Rogowsky could wear an article of clothing from a sponsored brand. There could also be a subtle prop, like the American Idol judges’ omnipresent cups of Coca-Cola.

However, this one has a really fine line here. If the brand doesn’t fit in seamlessly, a product placement, in particular, could be a bit much.

Woman Performs Surgery On Monarch Butterfly With Broken Wing, Next Day It Surprises Her In The Coolest Way

Depending what time of year they’re born, Monarch butterflies can live from 2 weeks to about 5 months, but this guy’s time was threatened to be cut ever shorter. Romy McCloskey committed to raising these creatures some time ago, and after one of them came into this world with a wing defect, she knew something had to be done. McCloskey turned her home into an operating room and used common household items to perform a wing transplant.

“I am a professional costume designer and master hand embroiderer,” she said. “This was right up my alley.” Her supplies included a towel, a wire hanger, contact cement, a toothpick, a cotton swab, scissors, tweezers, talc powder, and an extra butterfly wing from one of her little girls that died a few days before.

According to McCloskey, there’s no need to drug the butterflies when performing such a procedure. She compared their wings to human nails or hair: “They do not have pain receptors.”

Scroll down to check out how the surgery went!

Romy McCloskey on social media: Facebook | Instagram

“The patient: this 3-day-old little boy was born with torn upper and lower wings. Let’s see how we can help!”

“The operating room and supplies: towel, wire hanger, contact cement, toothpick, cotton swab, scissors, tweezers, talc powder, extra butterfly wing”

“Securing the butterfly and cutting the damaged parts away. Don’t worry it doesn’t hurt them. It’s like cutting hair or trimming fingernails”

“Ta-da! With a little patience and a steady hand, I fit the new wings to my little guy”

“The black lines do not match completely and it is missing the black dot (male marking) on the lower right wing, but with luck, he will fly”

“FLIGHT DAY! After a day of rest and filling his belly with homemade nectar, it is time to see if he will fly”

“With a quick lap around the yard and a little rest on a bush, he was off! A successful surgery and outcome! Bye, little buddy! Good luck”
