Just a week after debuting a campaign featuring Chance the Rapper at the Cannes Lions festival, Twitter is rolling out two more additions to its lineup of ads aimed at helping people understand why they should be on the platform.The ads—part of the new SeeEverySide campaign—will run on digital and online premium video platforms including Hulu, Roku, Freeform and other places like Twitter itself.For one of the spots, Twitter recruited some of the greatest athletes and intellectuals of our time, showcasing how they use the platform to debate with each other along with fans and strangers.The ad—featuring Shaquille O’Neal, Abby Wambach, Julius Erving and Michio Kaku—shows the celebrities discussing who is the “Greatest of All Time,” utilizing the GOAT acronym in the form of a hashtag that ties the conversation together.The ads have somewhat of a scripted cinéma vérité feel to them, providing a fly-on-the-wall perspective to describe how sports is one of the largest conversation topics on the platform—even though Twitter is now known for its political relevancy in mainstream media coverage.(The focus on sports is also likely to help drum up even more interest for Twitter’s burgeoning business of live streaming sports programming

Edwards and McDonald met earlier this month at Morgan's Inspiration Island, a water park in San Antonio that stresses accessibility.Venues like stadiums, movie theaters and, yes, theme parks have improved how they cater to the disability community, but Morgan's goes a step further."This 3-year-old girl that was real shy and able-bodied just hanging out with the kid in the wheelchair, like it was nothing.Gordon and Maggie Hartman, founders of the The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation, drew inspiration from their daughter Morgan, who was born with physical and cognitive disabilities, to create Morgan's Wonderland.Given the San Antonio heat, incorporating water became a necessity so visitors could enjoy themselves for longer periods of time without being overwhelmed by the sun.That's why the Hartmans built Morgan's Inspiration Island, a sister park to Wonderland, complete with five Caribbean-themed splash pads and a boat ride.

Uber has teamed up with Li Ka-shing’s favourite braised goose restaurant to take a bite out of Deliveroo and Foodpanda in an already crowded Hong Kong food delivery scene.The San Francisco-based disruptor for taxis is now making waves on the city’s culinary landscape, launching an aggressive marketing campaign to sign up the city’s Cantonese restaurants sought-after among Hong Kong foodies.Among them is even Li Ka-shing’s favourite Sun Kee, a small eatery celebrated for its braised food in Sai Ying Pun.There are also a few dai pai dong restaurants with grassroots appeal, notably Chan Kun Kee which sells wasabi hand-shredded chicken in Sha Tin.With the market share battle among food delivery services heating up in Hong Kong, major players Foodpanda and Deliveroo have been in a race to partner up with the most ubiquitous eateries.In the case of Hong Kong, many are family-owned businesses whose owners are only starting to embrace online food delivery.

Aspect Ventures, the San Francisco-based early-stage venture firm founded in 2014 by longtime VCs Jennifer Fonstad and Theresia Gouw, has begun raising its second fund, and the outfit is looking to raise up to $175 million, shows an SEC filing.The firm hasn’t responded to questions about its fundraising plans, but we’d guess that investors will line up quickly to fund the firm.In addition to the backgrounds of Fonstad and Gouw, who worked previously at DFJ and Accel Partners for 17 and 15 years, respectively, the team has assembled a promising portfolio, with bets that include millennial recruitment site The Muse, the on-trend fashion jewelry company BaubleBar, and the babysitting service UrbanSitter (which has proven a lifesaver for this editor).Aspect, which closed its debut fund with $150 million in 2015 and broadly focuses on Series A-stage millennial, health, and security startups, has also invested in Vida Health, an app that pairs patients with health coaches; Exabeam, a data security analytics company; and Forescout, a cybersecurity unicorn.Many of the companies in its portfolio are too young to judge, though at least one, Birchbox, a subscription service, has reportedly struggled to turn profitable in recent years.Aspect is also an investor in the hotel booking app HotelTonight, which was reportedly looking into an IPO as of last summer after trimming costs, including laying off some employees.

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneEA's E3 press conference happened three full days before E3 actually started, and it had two huge pieces of sci-fi bombast.While we couldn't go hands-on with the stunning-looking Anthem, and while major sequel Star Wars Battlefront II looks like an improvement all-around, one tucked-in-a-corner narrative game proved more captivating than both.I'm not ready to sign off on this being a truly successful narrative game yet, but it's already showed compelling mechanical twists that have seriously whet my narrative-gaming appetite.Virtual reality didn't splash as hard at E3 2017 as we'd anticipated, but that doesn't mean VR game development is languishing.The hacker's primary interaction method here is computer code commands, which the spy and hacker must figure out together.

SEATTLE—When introducing its sportback successor to the A4, Audi minced no words about its intended consumer target: the frequent car updater who is this close to switching to an SUV.After a few hours' drive in two flavors of this upgrade, the 2018 A5 and S5 Sportback, I was inclined to agree.0-60mph in a heartbeat—with room to spareThat niche is important to mind here, because unlike last year's A4 sedan, Audi is not offering a sub-$40,000 option for these models.The 2018 A5 Sportback will set you back nothing short of $42,600, while its beefier S5 sibling, whose upgrades includes a 3.0L engine and S Sport Suspension, starts at $54,400.Each car also comes in a "prestige" version, which will set you back $50,200 and $58,800, respectively.
