We Were Surprised To Learn Which Country Dominates The World In Natural Gas-Fueled Cars

In the Economist’s report on America’s energy revolution this week is an astonishing chart showing which countries lead the world in cars running on compressed natural gas.  And it may surprise you.

It’s apparently not a new trend — Khodro, Iran’s main auto manufacturer, has staked its fortunes on churning on CNG-based autos.

T. Boone Pickens has even evidently claimed that the Iranians have strategically made the switch to immunize themselves from the oil markets. 

Whatever the case, the U.S. is getting lapped.

6 Charts About The Future Of Learning

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/future-learning-charts-2011-12


This past summer, the Pew Research Center published a report on the “Digital Revolution and Higher Education.” The whole report is worth a read, but we’re drawn to the charts. Here are a few.

In these, only 15% of college presidents said that most of their students have taken a class online. But half think that 10 years from now, most students will take classes online.

Interestingly, college presidents see a greater educational value for online learning than the general public. Some 51% of college presidents polled said online courses offer an equal educational value, compared to classroom courses, versus just 29% of the public.

Here, we start to see which types of colleges are leading the way in online learning: community colleges and less-selective colleges. Those trends are expected to lead the way, with 4-year private school presidents considering their undergrad student bodies the least likely to be taking online classes.

Pew education charts

Not surprising: 62% of college presidents think that more than half of student textbooks will be entirely digital in 10 years. Only 7% of college presidents think that less than 25% of student textbooks will be entirely digital.

What’s helping that trend? Apple’s iPad. Here’s a bonus chart from Kleiner Perkins’ Mary Meeker showing just how fast the iPad is gaining steam relative to the iPhone and iPod.

These Time Magazine Covers Explain Why Americans Know Nothing About The World

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/these-time-magazine-covers-explain-why-americans-know-nothing-about-the-world-2011-11


It’s not news that Time magazines uses different covers for its different regional editions, but it’s only when you gather them all together — so you can see what Europe and Asia read in Time compared to what Americans read in Time — that it becomes clear how insular the U.S. edition of Time is.

If you live abroad, the current edition of time features a dramatic picture of an Arab rebel wearing a gas mask under the headline “Revolution Redux.” In America, we got “Why anxiety is good for you”:

time magazine covers

Hmm.

Publishing ain’t easy, of course. Editors need to pick what sells (and what sells advertising). There are good reasons why the U.S. audience won’t be as interested in Tintin as Europe’s would be, which explains why Tintin dominated the foreign Time covers on Oct. 31. In the U.S., to Time’s credit, that edition featured “The China Bubble,” a piece about whether economic growth in the East is sustainable.

That laudable example aside, however, this collection of recent Time covers does make us Americans look like we’re just not that interested in the rest of the world.

While the rest of the world gets a thoughtful piece about Islam, the U.S. gets … chores!




Cold Turkey

Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan may be the key democratically elected Muslim leader who stands at the crossroads between East and West, but hey! What about these inventions?!




Mom liked them best …

The Nov. 14 editions were soft features in all regions, but American exceptionalism was alive and well.
