  • Market value of the largest internet companies worldwide 2021

    Feb 24, 2021 | Internet

    The statistic depicts the market capitalization of the largest internet companies worldwide as of February 2021. That month, e-commerce company Amazon's market capitalization stood at 1,662 billion U.S. dollars. Meanwhile, Alphabet the parent company of search market leader Google had a market capitalization of 1,392 billion U.S. dollars. The end of the 1990 in the United States saw the rise of a great number of internet companies, also called online companies or a variety of the name “dot com,” where the “.com” domain is derived from the word commercial. At the time, such startups were merely riding the wave of early internet business, but had little capital and perhaps one good idea. Few companies have survived the burst of the dot com bubble and even fewer have managed to become internationally successful. A few notable exceptions are American companies such as Google (founded in 1998), Amazon (founded in 1994) or eBay Inc. (founded in 1995), and the Chinese online giant Alibaba (founded in 1998), which have come to be some of the largest internet companies in the world. Topping the ranking of largest internet companies worldwide is currently Alphabet, the parent company of Google, with a market capitalization of 741 billion U.S. dollars as of June 2019. Having started as a PhD project at Stanford University, the Google project slowly gained traction and is now the number one search engine in the world, with a market share of 90 percent on the search engine market. Due to a number of high profile acquisitions, Google has expanded its portfolio beyond search, to include the video content sharing site YouTube, the digital app platform Google Play Store, the webmail service Gmail and the web browser Google Chrome, to only name a few. As of March 2019, it is also the most visited multi-platform website in the United States, with almost 256 million U.S. unique visitors during that month alone. In October 2015, Google reorganized itself into a newly created parent company, the multinational conglomerate Alphabet Inc. The biggest internet companies in terms of their workforce are currently Amazon, Google and eBay.

  • Ethereum (ETH) price history from 2015 to March 30, 2021

    Mar 30, 2021 | Currencies

    The Ethereum price in USD kept growing in value over the course of February 2021, at one point nearly reaching 1,800 U.S. dollars. After Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, it is the third most known cryptocurrency in the United States. Still, the majority of those surveyed were not aware of Ethereum. What is a cryptocurrency? Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that are not regulated by any centralized authority, such as a government or bank. They are created through a process called “mining”, when miners sell processing power to the currency’s server in exchange for an amount of the currency. For security, every transaction is stored on a distributed ledger using a technology called “blockchain”. The cryptocurrency market Given the price volatility of Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies, investors seem more interested in them than consumers at the moment. As such, many are looking to the market capitalization of major cryptocurrencies. Ethereum has a relatively large share of the market at the moment, but newer coins are gaining in popularity.

  • People shot to death by U.S. police, by race 2017-2021

    Mar 28, 2021 | Police

    Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 132 civilians having been shot, 16 of whom were Black, in the first two months of 2021. In 2020, there were 1,004 fatal police shootings, and in 2019 there were 999 fatal shootings. Additionally, the rate of fatal police shootings among Black Americans was much higher than that for any other ethnicity, standing at 35 fatal shootings per million of the population as of February 2021. Police brutality in the U.S. In recent years, particularly since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, police brutality has become a hot button issue in the United States. The number of homicides committed by police in the United States is often compared to those in countries such as England, where the number is significantly lower. Black Lives Matter The Black Lives Matter Movement, formed in 2013, has been a vocal part of the movement against police brutality in the U.S. by organizing “die-ins”, marches, and demonstrations in response to the killings of black men and women by police. While Black Lives Matter has become a controversial movement within the U.S., it has brought more attention to the number and frequency of police shootings of civilians.

  • COVID-19 vaccination rate in European countries as of March 2021

    Mar 31, 2021 | Prevention

    As of March 28, 2021, the United Kingdom had the highest COVID-19 vaccination rate in Europe having administered 9.61 doses per 100 people in the country. The UK was the first country in Europe to approve the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for widespread use and began inoculations on December 8, 2020. At the latest data, Malta had carried out 40 doses of the vaccine per 100 population, followed by Serbia with a vaccination rate of 34.15. Russia became the first country in the world to authorize a vaccine - named Sputnik V - for use in the fight against COVID-19 in August. As of March 22, 2021, Russia had administered 7.26 doses per 100 people in the country. Controversially in many European countries, use of the AstraZeneca vaccine was banned in March for a short while due to concerns over safety, hindering the vaccination drive in these countries. As the immunization programs proceed in Europe, transmission of the virus remains very high across the continent. In the week ending March 21, 2021, there were over 1.4 million new cases of COVID-19 recorded in Europe. Furthermore, the seven-day rate of cases across Europe shows an ongoing perspective of which countries are worst affected by the virus relative to their population.

    Mar 23, 2021 | Diseases

    The outbreak of the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China saw infection cases spread throughout the Asia Pacific region. By March 21, 2021 India had faced nearly 11.6 million coronavirus cases. Indonesia followed behind India as having had the second highest number of coronavirus cases in Asia Pacific, with almost 1.46 million cases. At the beginning of the outbreak, people in South Korea had been optimistic and predicted that the number of cases would start to stabilize. What is SARS CoV 2? Novel coronavirus, officially known as SARS CoV 2, is a disease which causes respiratory problems which can lead to difficulty breathing and pneumonia. The illness is similar to that of SARS which spread throughout China in 2003. After the outbreak of the coronavirus, various businesses and shops closed to prevent further spread of the disease. Impacts from flight cancellations and travel plans were felt across the Asia Pacific region. Many people expressed feelings of anxiety as to how the virus would progress. Impact throughout Asia Pacific By the end of January 2020, it was announced that the coronavirus outbreak was in fact a public health emergency. The following March, it was officially declared a global pandemic. China and South Korea were the main countries in the Asia Pacific region which initially saw the rapid spread of COVID-19 among its citizens. The high number of cases experienced in these countries was likely due to community spreading, in which the infection spread through a specific area. However, by October China nor South Korea were in the leading five Asia Pacific countries that had suffered the highest number of coronavirus cases. Throughout 2020, strong impacts were felt in various Asia Pacific economies, due to the slowdown of many economies across the Asia Pacific region.

  • Power generation in China 2011-2020, by source

    Feb 9, 2021 | Electricity

    In 2020, approximately 467 terawatt hours of electricity had been generated using wind power. Renewable energy in China    In the last two decades, China has been raising the capacity, and hence the generation volume, of electricity from all sources of energy in order to meet the growing energy demand. Although most of the growth still came from thermal power which was the dominating source of energy in China for a long time, Chinese consumption of renewable energy has increased to over 140 times the consumption rate of the early 2000s. It was forecasted by the China Renewable Energy Centre that hydropower and wind power would account for around six and 26 percent of electricity generation by 2050, respectively. The role of China in global renewable energy   Deciding to ride with the global sustainable development tide, China has attempted to transform itself into one of the leading players in the renewable energy arena. Mainland China and Taiwan together accounted for 70 percent of the global solar photovoltaic module production worldwide. Furthermore, China has become a keen investor in clean energy, having invested over 83 billion U.S. dollars in 2019, exceeding the sum of the second and third biggest players, namely United States and Japan.
