Excellent work by a group I'd never heard, or heard of, until just now,  Voctronica, in collaboration with the constantly improving +All India Bakchod.

My eyes lit up when I saw this headline; I hugely admire Oliver's work. But, tchah, nothing I couldn't have written sitting on the other side of the planet watching YouTube clips.
Brevity, so it has been said, is the soul of wit. John Oliver seems to believe the opposite is equally true. The comedian has been letting loose on his new HBO program “Last Week Tonight,” unveilin...

Please help by re-sharing this?

We're crowd-sourcing a list of agencies that provide home care for invalids and convalescents, senior citizens and disabled people in India.

Home care for invalids in IndiaWe're looking for agencies and organisations that provide trained or semi-trained help for invalids, senior citizens and the handicapped, in the patient's home. If you know of one, particularly if you have actually used their services, please fill up this simple form.

Those pre- and post-dinner cocktails, on the other hand..

If you've wondered how stats like how many kilometres a player ran and so forth, here's how they do it. (Not with chips implanted in the boots, as I thought.)
The collected data is analyzed by coaches and trainers to help ensure that teams are working at their peak potential.

I chatted with Indian Ocean a few weeks ago, about a bunch of things, including the band's journey over time, cows, Abbey Road, collaboration, renewal, cows, Bappi Lahri, cricket, and, yes cows. And their new album, Tandanu. This article leaves out the cows, but it's still, I think, worth your while.

Sounds like a book all lovers of language and etymology will like, but that translators will probably adore.

A look at the power of creative partnerships, through the lens of Lennon and McCartney. It's a nice premise, and there's a story waiting to be done about great partnerships. (Shenk has a book coming out on the subject, from the end-credits.) I've seen a lot of it in my advertising years --- sometimes a writer and art director, sometimes a suit and a creative --- and in journalism too, where an editor and reporter, or a copy editor and a reporter, or a writer and photographer produce something greater than the sum of its parts.

Mark Woerde of Lemz reveals how the agency created a call-to-action campaign featuring Sweetie, a 3-D character who caught predators in the act.

The ultimate earthquake map.
I've been looking at really general sources of existential risk and visualizing them via the kitchen sink school of thematic mapping.  So the earthquakes map was just a matter of time. Here, data from NCEDC.org and the USGS a...

Way back, when I told advertising friends that O&M's anti-smoking campaign poster was 'inspired' by a MAD spoof ad, I was asked for proof, but could never find the MAD ad. It dated back to the 60s, so finding it again was impossible then. Take a look at the ads featured in this story.
Oh, p.s., Rupa Gulab tells me the original writer (of the poster, not the MAD ad) was never credited when O&M won awards for it.
