The Social Rewind for May 2, 2016

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?
“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column: We read in this Tektronix post that researchers at the University of Arizona are developing connected vehicle technology that could not only prevent crashes, but prioritize cars to reduce traffic.

Workrite Ergonomics’ post reveals a study by Danish and Australian researchers that says you can lose fat by sitting less at work.

This post from the National Nuclear Security Administration points out that while the term “solar wind” may sound pleasant, at times these particles from the Sun can make life dangerous here on Earth.

In another connected car post, ASSEMBLY Magazine looks at how China is counting on that technology to develop the car of the future.

Dragons may still be a fantasy, but apparently unicorns really did exist. Check out this Agilent Technologies post to learn about Elasmotherium sibiricum, the “Siberian unicorn.”

And we close out this week’s column with our blog post about Brady’s Spring Portable Printer Sale.

There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We enjoy bringing you this weekly column and hope you liked reading the Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared your interesting posts with us and if you would share this column with your friends and colleagues.
