More inclusive design, everyone benefits
In the event of an accident, it seems easy to dial 110 and 120 directly from your mobile phone. However, Tencent has made a feature that allows users to use a small program to "dial" 120 for help. Why?
What if, after the call is connected, you can't speak and tell your needs? What if you can’t hear the operator on the other end of the phone?
Yesterday, Tencent announced that it had launched the "Barrier-free first aid function" on Tencent's emergency open platform, allowing users with hearing/speaking disabilities to dial 120 for help through a small program.
We can use this feature through the mini program "Penguin First Aid" or "Accessible First Aid".
Hearing/speaking impaired users can click on "Speaking and hearing impaired emergency channel" to enter the relevant mode, and then send the emergency situation directly to the 120 emergency center in text.
After the staff receives the information, the system will convert their voice responses to text. Even better, when calling for help, the applet will synchronize user address information to 120.
Tencent said that for the needs of hearing-impaired users, there will be special reminders in the dispatchers, so that they can respond more quickly.
Currently, barrier-free first aid functions have been launched in 23 cities including Beijing, Wuhan, Nanjing, Nanchang, Nanning, and Changzhi.
In the "Penguin First Aid" applet, there is also a key to call for help.
Since the service has not yet been opened in Guangzhou, in the "simulated call for help" mode, we can see that after being connected, the user can directly have a video conversation with the 120 staff through the mobile phone.
At the same time, the screen will also call for help where the nearest hospital is and the status of emergency volunteers.
In addition to asking for help, users can also register as first aid volunteers on "Penguin First Aid" to help people in need around them.
The story of sustainability can also be told like this
If you are lucky, we will see friends wearing two different socks on the street, in the company, and in the school on December 23 this year.
Don't think that they didn't wake up and put on the wrong socks. In fact, they were participating in an event called "Wrong Socks Day."
"Wrong Socks Day" is an event initiated by WABC Yitu Charity Foundation in 2016. It calls on everyone to use "wrong socks" to express their concern for "uncommon" people with autism, cerebral palsy and other mentally disabled people. The support of their family.
The reason I bring this up is because Yitu released the official promotional video of the 2021 "Wrong Socks Day" yesterday. It tells the story of Down syndrome musician Xiao Huang, "The Most Beautiful Marathon Girl" Spring Outing, and Cerebral Palsy anchor Xiao Long. And the story of the autistic painter Liu Yi, let people see that "unusual people" also have "ordinary sides."

how? After watching this video, do you want to find two different beautiful socks from the cabinet and put them on the waves?
Good product, worth using for a long time
British backpack brand Eastpak teamed up with fashion second-hand platform Depop to launch a series of backpacks called "Re-built to Resist".
This series of backpacks are re-made from old bags. The design combines two colors or prints to create nearly 50 different styles.
The backpack's back panel, shoulder straps and packaging bags are made of durable materials, and a 30-year limited warranty policy is provided to extend the life of the backpack and encourage customers to reduce purchases.
This backpack series retails for US$50 and is now on sale on the Depop platform.
Future Food Adventure
Australian food brand Wide Open Agriculture (WOA) announced the completion of a US$20 million financing.
WOA stated that the funds will be used to build a specialized factory in Australia and replace the original imported oats from Italy with raw oats made from local renewable agriculture. In this way, WOA claims that the brand will be able to create "plant-based beverages with the lowest carbon footprint in the world."
Previously, Dirty Clean Food, a brand under WOA, launched OatUP, an oat milk drink, which was sold in Australia and Southeast Asia.
In addition to oat milk, WOA will also use the remaining funds to research lupins (also known as Lu Binghua).
At present, soy and pea protein are often used as plant-based raw materials, and lupin is a new research and development object in the industry.
New York company MPOWERD mainly produces lightweight and portable solar lights, suitable for outskirts travel and even emergency use after disasters.
The most well-known product line of the brand is the series of solar lights called Luci. It uses an inflatable design, so when not in use, the user can fold it up, which is very easy to carry, transport and store.
At the same time, this series of lamps also carries the value story of MPOWERD:
We believe that everyone deserves clean, reliable and affordable energy, no matter where they live or what their living conditions are.
We also believe that the earth deserves more love.
According to "Business Insider", MPOWERD's model is to reduce costs through mass production and manufacturing, and place these saved costs where these resources are most needed.
MPOWERD will use part of the product revenue through cooperation with 700 non-profit organizations around the world to provide Luci solar lights to areas in need.
In places where energy supply is unstable, it often means activities will stop after dark. The Luci project provides solar lights for children and women in these areas, so that they can continue to study/work after dark, and also help make night activities safer.
In addition to MPOWERD's own donation activities, consumers can also directly buy lights on MPOWERD to donate to partner organizations.
The use of these donated Luci lights will also become more diverse through the creation of non-profit organizations. For example, these lights can be provided to women in Kenya to sell, and the camp can be used in the construction of the entire community.
At the same time, this also allows more residents in developing regions to have access to clean energy, reducing their dependence on affordable but polluting energy sources.
How much change can a small light that does not depend on the power grid make? It's not small.
