"Here's the quote directly from the SEC doc: "On average more than 250 million photos per day were uploaded to Facebook in the three months ended December 31, 2011." That's 7.5 billion photos a month. That's 10.4 million photos an hour. That's roughly 174,000 per minute. That's almost 3,000 photos per second. In short, they get more photos in a single day than you could ever hope to look at in a lifetime. Insane, especially when you consider that Flickr reached 6 billion photos total sometime last summer.
All those photos must take up a lot of space on their servers, right? They sure do. "We store more than 100 petabytes (100 quadrillion bytes) of photos and videos." Yeah, that number includes videos, but it's still staggering. That's equal to 100,000 terabytes, or if you want to break it down even smaller, 100 million gigabytes. That's a lot of bytes."
Today, we’re wishing the legendary children’s book author Lois Lowry a very happy 75th birthday! One of our all-time favorite authors of children’s literature, Lowry published her first kids book in 1977, and has since penned over 30 more. To celebrate Lowry’s birthday, we’ve put together a list of the all-time best authors of children’s literature written in English, from the contemporary to the classic, from the wildly magical to the wittily familiar. Here, we’re defining “children’s literature” as being novels aimed at the 9 to 13 set, a little bit young for YA proper, but well into the chapter book stage and getting ready for more meaty fare. After all, there’s no better way to prepare a child for a life of creativity and curiosity than to give them a bunch of great books during their formative years. Or at least we think so. Click through to read our list — and since we wanted to make this list three times over (but you’ve gotta stop somewhere), be sure to chime in with your own …
"Nastase a fost inchis pentru o chestiune pe care o fac multi politicieni. Partidele politice nu se finanteaza doar din bani albi. (...) Basescu cu mana pe inima spune ca a folosit doar bani albi pentru finantare in campania electorala, sa fim seriosi", a afirmat ministrul liberal al Transporturilor, marti, cu ocazia unei vizite facute pe santierul metroului din Drumul Taberei, potrivit Realitatea TV.
"Cred că a fost singura greşeală şi anume că doamna Pivniceru, un om serios, un magistrat, un om al legii, al spiritului, al literei, a luat în serios ce s-a discutat la Comisia Europeană", a declarat Crin Antonescu.
