word usage - can "traffic" be used as a shorten form of "traffic jam"


i heard somewhere that in english-speaking countries folk use just "traffic" instead of "traffic jam"this is not the case in the uk. "traffic" is, in this context, the vehicles using the roads. if you say that you were delayed "because of traffic" it means that your journey took longer than you expected because there were more people using the roads than you anticipated, so people were moving more slowly. a "traffic jam" is specifically a large amount of stationary or almost stationary traffic.so it's possible to be delayed by traffic without getting stuck in a traffic jam. for example, you might only be able to drive at 50km/h on a road where you'd normally drive at 80: your journey will take almost twice as long as normal, but you weren't in a traffic jam, since you were sti...

society - what could make a remote village also have reasonably high traffic?


i've got a european medieval-themed world and my focus is everyday life in a small village (population of 300~500 people) in the mountains. i'm trying to stay away from action, adventure, violence, etc. as much as possible, so i want this village to be a remote, quiet place. however, i still want it to see at least some traffic, be it travelers or merchants or whatever, so that the village has significant economic activity. i don't know enough about medieval economics or everyday life to give some concrete numbers, like how many merchants passing per week, but i'm aiming for something high enough to make the village have some significant interaction, yet not too high to make it some economic hub. i'm certain it's possible but wasn't able to come up with a good reason or find a real-...

youtube will stop showing the suggested video links you didn't click


the company doesn't think this will cause too many problems. cards and end screen video links are more effective, youtube said. for third-party links, it wants you to use video descriptions, channel pages or even your channel artwork.youtube told us this will remove existing in-video notifications, which could lead to some awkward moments in videos where presenters point to pop-ups that no longer exist. on the balance, though, this appears to be positive news if you're a youtube fan. it should mean fewer intrusions while you're viewing on the web, and fewer creators going out of their way to plug one video while you're watching another.
