Hotel management platform Mews closes €6m Series A | TechCrunch
Thus it is that
Mews, the hotel property management platform, has closed a €6m Series A funding round. The round was led by Notion.vc Capital, with participation from HenQ and Thayer Ventures.

The funding will be used to accelerate the business and open new offices around the world to support its global customer base.

Mews’ platform automates check-ins and payments as also covering booking management and staff training. It’s designed to be an open platform allowing other tools and apps to connect through its API. So, think ‘Slack for hotels’, perhaps.

Facebook allows videos with copyrighted music, tests Lip Sync Live | TechCrunch
Facebook users will no longer have their uploaded videos with copyrighted background music taken down thanks to a slew of deals with all the major record labels plus many indies.

Facebook is also starting to test a feature designed to steal users from teen sensation app Musically.  Facebook’s new Lip Sync Live lets users pick a popular song to pretend to sing on a Facebook Live broadcast. Hundreds of songs will be available to start, including “Havana” by Camila Cabello, “Welcome to The Jungle” by Guns N Roses, and “God’s Plan” by Drake.

Comment la voiture autonome va chambouler l'assurance
L'avénement des voitures autonomes devraient générer des baisses d'accident, le modèle économique des assureurs devraient alors évoluer. Les accidents pourraient ainsi diminuer de moitié d'ici 2030 et le nombre de voitures en circulation baisser lui aussi du fait de la hausse du partage du parc. La relation pourrait alors évoluer du conducteur vers la voiture

Gaokao 2018: The agony and the ecstasy of taking China's make-or-break college exam — Quartz
Photos: The agony and the ecstasy of taking China’s make-or-break college exam https://ift.tt/2JlJOsr Prospective https://ift.tt/2sRYPXO June 8, 2018 at 11:46AM

This week (June 7 and 8), took 9.7 million Chinese students (link in Chinese) began what’s known as “life’s most important test” in China—the gaokao, or the national university entrance exams.

In the lead-up to exam time, high schools across China often engage in various activities to inspire test-takers. Teachers lecture students as if they were soldiers in the army, preparing for battle. Motivational slogans might be placed across campus walls or worn on uniforms. Sometimes students get superstitious—wearing red clothes (link in Chinese), burning $240 joss sticks, or praying before a statue of Confucius.

The test is so high-stakes that some students go great lengths to cheat on it. To crack down on exam fraud, schools have made use of metal detectors, drones, and facial-recognition software. Authorities this year in Inner Monglolia are performing finger vein scans on test-takers—because fingerprints can be too easily faked.

This year’s exam has been highly politicized. Of the nine essay questions asked nationally (there’s some regional variations to the test), five were centered around slogans put forth by president Xi Jinping.

Below are some photos of students across China as they prepare for the 2018 test.
