  1. How Powerful are the Social Media on the Internet?


    September 10, 2018 by wimvincken

    Each minute of your time awake or asleep, there are billions of people on the Internet doing their things. Yes, literally billions each minute, each second of the day, none-stop. And each year this number only increases to the absolute extremes, never predicted, never seen on such scale.
    The world counts in January 2018 7,593,000,000 people, or with other words, 7 billion and about 593 million people. From those people, 55% live in cities. From those almost 7.6 billion people, about 4 billion (53%) people have Internet access, which is 7% up from 2017! From those people connected to the Internet, 3.196 billion people (42%) using the social media, which is an increase of 13% from 2017. Throughout the world, 5.135 billion people (68%) are using mobile phones, a growth of 4% with 2017. From those mobile phone users, 2.958 billion people (39%) are using the social media.
    And then each minute, 3.3 million posts in Facebook, 150,000 emails are sent, 500 hours of YouTube videos uploaded, 29 million messages sent with WhatsApp, 1,440 posts are posted at WordPress websites, 448,800 tweets tweeted, 65,972 photos are uploaded to InstaGram and 3.8 million searches are performed in Google search engine. It’s powerful.

    The best US state to live in 2018 is Iowa. The worst state to live in the US is Louisiana. I took eight criteria, which are preferred by Americans and combined them together, getting a list of the best US states to live in. But I also went one step further by determining which state has a Democratic and Republican Governor currently (before the midterm elections in this year 2018). That led to an interesting comparison, even that there is much more Republican states exist compared with the Democrats. Republican states are 53% preferred. Democrats win on healthcare and crime, while the republicans win on education, economy, opportunity, infrastructure, fiscal stability and quality of life.

    A shocking report from the House Homeland Security Committee, which claims that “ISIS is fueling an unprecedented tempo for law enforcement authorities combating the homegrown Islamist extremist threat. The vast majority of the 900 active homegrown extremist investigations involve links to ISIS. Authorities have already arrested nearly 60 individuals this year in ISIS-related cases.”. If you take a look at their interactive map, you see that they indeed are doing their job until now (except for the San Bernardino this week.

    Mass shooting in the US for 2013-2015

    Some people are wondering what’s going on with the mass-shootings in the US. Is it so bad? Let’s see at the numbers. In 2013, there were 364 mass-shooting attacks, in 2014 there were 336 death and in 2015 there were 353 death, totally 1,053, 1,347 death and 3,821 wounded. We have an average of 351 attacks per year with 449 death and 1,274 wounded per year. Because the year 2015 is still not over, the number of mass shooting attacks might go up!

  5. Life Expectancy and fertility


    December 3, 2015 by wimvincken

    There is a relationship between life expectancy and fertility. How higher the fertility rate, how lower the life expectancy. For those countries with a high life expectancy, the US scores 37 of the 194 countries in the world. In the top 10, we see only 3 European countries. For those countries with a high fertility rate, the US scores 127 from the 194 countries. Only African countries occupy the top 9 of the highest fertility rate. Afghanistan rates number 10.

    The average percentage of death caused by guns worldwide is 0.01%. Montenegro is the safest place to live if you afraid of guns and Guinea (West-Africa) is the unsafest place. With the current political situation in the US and the question of the dangers of guns in the US, the US ranks 88 on the list of 172 countries. Death by drug use, the US is ranked number 3 of 172 countries. Death by road traffic, the US is ranked 131 from the 172 countries. By death of suicide, the US is ranked 47 of the 172 countries. By death of violence, the US is ranked 85 from the 172 countries. I suggest that Mr. President Obama is stopping the politics and spend time and effort to reduce the numbers death by drugs and suicide. For journalists, it’s a very good idea to ask the candidates for the President elections what their programs are in those areas.

    Many people are wondering who created the ISIS. Many Arabs and Muslims are claiming that the US and/or Israel created the ISIS. Those rumors are persistent, even when you try to counter it with actual facts. I’m not going to repeat those arguments, so I let you all answer that question.

    What ever the heap is what the media may claim, they didn’t do their homework correctly and didn’t look at statistics. In order to build a correct as possible opinion about the problem of terror, everyone needs to have a good idea what’s exactly going on in the world. Reading and studying media is not the answer, because their sources are suspect and not correct, accurate or they are simply opinions and uses data incorrect or they interpret data according their preference. The only way to do that is to read the statistics, because those numbers give a certain objective detail. How you like to interpret that data is up for every individual. You are free to link or relate all the data here with UFOs if you like.

This article tries to show by statistical numbers why the ISIS is so dangerous and what the real support is for the ISIS. And that support is not those few poor little kids in the UK or France!
