Why AI writing assistants are the next generation of style guides

Emilee Geist

So you like TNW? Then join our upcoming online event, TNW2020, you don’t want to miss it.

Style guides have a long history in the writing process. They’ve always affected more than what counts as good content. They affected our writing process and behaviors, our sense of community, even our egos. As AI pushes the style guide another step, how will it push us along too?

Stacking style manuals

The early style guides came in the form of manuscripts and books, mainly out of academia and journalism. They were made for print, in print.

Twitter’s changes since the June attack include requiring security keys

Emilee Geist

As an additional measure, Twitter started distributing phishing-resistant security keys to its employees and requiring its teams around the world to use them. Google implemented the measure in 2017 to great success: A year after making it mandatory for employees to use physical security keys for two-factor authentication, the tech giant announced that it has “no reported or confirmed account takeovers” anymore.

Twitter required all new employees to go through security, privacy and data protection trainings, as well. Those who have access to non-public data had to attend additional mandatory training sessions on how they can avoid becoming phishing targets for attackers. The company also said that it’s been constantly improving its internal detection and monitoring tools that alert the company of possible unauthorized access attempts.

As for its election-specific efforts, Twitter said it recently implemented heightened security measures for election-related Twitter accounts in the US. A few days ago,

Did You Know You Can Be Allergic to Tattoo Ink? Yep, That’s A Thing

Emilee Geist

From Seventeen

Getting your first tattoo is both terrifying and exciting, and you probably have a million questions already. How bad will it hurt? How do you know if a parlor is safe? How much will it cost? Before you get anything permanently placed on your body, you should make sure every single one of these questions (and many more) are answered 100%.

Even though I have nine tattoos and counting, I’m still nowhere near an expert on tattoo care. So I enlisted the best professionals in the biz (a celeb tattoo artist and two dermatologists) to spill all that tattoo-related tea – removals, reactions, pricing and more. Along with their expert medical advice, I also shared a few things I’ve learned from when I’ve personally gone under the needle – both the good and very, VERY bad. Read on for all of the things you NEED to know before

Inside Amiri’s First Flagship on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills

Emilee Geist

Homegrown L.A. rock ‘n’ roll brand Amiri is staking its claim among the luxury titans with his first retail store.

“It was really important that it didn’t look like all the other Rodeo Drive stores,” said Mike Amiri of the 2,200-square-foot flagship. “I wanted to create a humble space, not a flashy one,” he added, offering some insight into how his six-year-old brand differs from his European neighbors that have mined L.A. for so much inspiration in recent years — Saint Laurent, Gucci and Louis Vuitton among them.

Amiri has his own European connections, of course; Italian entrepreneur Renzo Rosso and his OTB Holdings took a minority stake in the brand in June 2019. But for retail, “The natural place to open a first store was home,” explained the designer and chief executive officer of his firm, who went to school up the street at Beverly Hills High and sneaked

From terrazzo tiles to rattan headboards, there are lots of home decor trends that have made a comeback recently. Industrial interiors are in, as are the desert designs of the Southwest. 

One of the biggest trends actually comes from 100 years ago: art deco, which reigned supreme in the ’20s and ’30s, the age of “The Great Gatsby,” flappers and Prohibition. A century later, we were due for a revival anyway, according to The Washington Post. 

Art deco was thought to be very modern back in its heyday (hey, we are still talking about it in 2020). The art and architectural movement influenced everything from

Mountains of clothes which could not be sold due to the initial coronavirus lockdown in spring are to be ‘hibernated’ this winter, retailers have confirmed.

Next, Marks & Spencer and more British brands plan to house the collections which never made it onto the shop floor when stores were shuttered from 23rd March until 15th June – a period that would traditionally have seen key merchandise arrivals for the season ahead including swimwear, holiday clothing and occasionwear. 

Next’s latest statement revealed it will ‘hibernate’ 2020 stock at a cost price of £50 million, carrying it over to be sold instead in spring 2021. A spokesperson described a balancing act of ‘cancelling orders that had not yet gone into production (but paying for unused fabric), hibernating stock for the following year and reducing future orders’ as the methods being used to futureproof the business following the

Users will be told to self-isolate if the app determines they are at high risk of being infected

People living in England and Wales are being urged to download the government’s contact-tracing app following its official release.

NHS Covid-19 instructs users to self-isolate for 14 days if it detects they were nearby someone who has the virus.

It also has a check-in scanner to alert owners if a venue they have visited is found to be an outbreak hotspot.

More than one million people had downloaded the app onto their smartphones by the early afternoon.

Anyone aged 16 and over is being asked to install it.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the app “helps us to find more people who are at risk of having the virus” that human contact tracers are unable to find.

“Everybody who downloads the app will be helping to protect themselves, helping to protect their
