Feb 15, 2018 | Chart | Map | US

Unfortunately another day and another mass shooting in the US (In Florida this time). The massshootingtracker.org website compiles all the public data available of those type of incidents in the news and the numbers are staggering. Just this year 86 people have been killed and 142 wounded on those type of incidents. The charts above show how this affect every single state on that country.

Is it time now to discuss sensible gun control laws? or how many more are needed?

Good country index

According to their website, the good country index attempts to measure what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away, relative to its size. The index takes into account several data points in different areas such as: Science & Technology, Culture, International Peace & Security, World Order, Planet & Climate, Prosperity & Equality, Health & Wellbeing. The concept is quite interesting because but truly live in one single planet so the policies taken by any single country have effects on the rest of the world. The results for 2017 are:

Mobile OS Market Share

Jan 30, 2018 | Mobile | Picture | It

A couple of weeks ago an article in business insider stated that Apple’s iOS was losing market share in Europe’s four largest markets (Great Britain, France, Italy, and Spain) besides Japan. I haven’t checked the mobile global market in a while and today checking the starcounter stats, Android is clearly dominant on a global scale. It’s true Android has some issues, including the well known fragmentation, but I still prefer the flexibility of this OS over the iOS one.
