Why Obama’s victory tweet got far more retweets than Modi’s

 

Nipun SHarma's insight:

A photo would perhaps have added even more value to Modi’s tweet in India, where there are 22 officially recognized languages and another estimated 1,652 “mother tongues” (according to the census). With such linguistic diversity, it’s no coincidence that the most retweeted posts during the Indian election season featured pictures or visuals of some sort. A picture, in this case, would have been worth a thousand languages.

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales is only worth $1 million

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales is only worth $1 million | World Business and Economics | Scoop.it
A million dollars is a lot of money for a normal person, but that's pretty low if you founded the fifth most visited website on the planet, and only pretty good if you were a CEO in 1965.

Gold, Silver & 100-Year Inflection Point To Crush The West

Gold, Silver & 100-Year Inflection Point To Crush The West | World Business and Economics | Scoop.it

Stephen Leeb tells Eric King:

 

If we look at the Middle-East, you have Russia sending missiles to protect Syria against blockades and no fly zones.  It also suggests that Russia will do the same for Iran.  Of course all of this has to do with oil.  Since 2007 the Russian economy has been a mess and it is in Russia’s best interest to keep the oil prices elevated.  Continued uncertainty in the Middle-East feeds into that objective.

 

While this may be bad news for the world, it’s certainly good news for gold.  Higher oil is good for gold, and so is continued economic uncertainty.  Right now the West is doing everything it can to keep gold from being recognized as a currency.  But as soon as gold becomes recognized as a currency, not just a de facto currency but a real currency, it’s game over for the US dollar.

 

So this is what the West is fighting.  Earlier today ...

India Entrepreneurs Vs. Global Giants

India Entrepreneurs Vs. Global Giants | World Business and Economics | Scoop.it

Perhaps it’s the BRIC curse. Many analysts have traditionally put forth the idea that Brazil, Russia, India and China will have their own equivalents of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and eBay and hence those are the firms one should fund and look out for in each country. It almost holds true, too: the Google of Russia is Yandex, and of China is Baidu. The Facebook of Russia is VKontakte and that of China is RenRen. The Amazon of Russia is Ozon and its Chinese equivalent is Jingdong or JD. And the Twitter of China is Weibo while its eBay is Alibaba

Critical Thinking in Everyday Life: 9 Strategies

Nipun SHarma's insight:

Development in thinking requires a gradual process requiring plateaus of learning and just plain hard work. It is not possible to become an excellent thinker simply because one wills it. Changing one’s habits of thought is a long-range project, happening over years, not weeks or months. The essential traits of a critical thinker require an extended period of development.
