Hi loves! I want to chat about important issues across my blog that not many people speak about as they ‘don’t want to say the wrong thing’, ‘aren’t educated enough about’ or simply just don’t care enough to speak about. Well, quite frankly, these topics should be spoken about. Just because they don’t affect your […]

The famous case interview is a strategy-related exercise to be solved directly in front of the interviewer, which all consulting firms (McKinsey, BCG, Bain, etc.) love using. You do not receive any prior instructions, so do not panic if you have no knowledge of the sector of activity related to the case on the D-day. […]

You’re reading Significant Digits, a daily digest of the numbers tucked inside the news. 20,000 homes Over the next 10 years, Google plans to invest $1 billion to “enable the development of” 20,000 new homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, including more than 5,000 affordable housing units. The announcement came a day ahead of Google parent Alphabet’s shareholders meeting. Protesters have cited the company’s negative impact on the San Jose real estate market. [Engadget] 70 years Permafrost in the Arctic is not so perma anymore. A University of Alaska Fairbanks team on expedition in the Canadian Arctic was “astounded” to find that permafrost there was thawing, 70 years earlier that predicted. The permafrost — “giant subterranean ice blocks” — had been frozen solid for thousands of years. [The Guardian] 0.4 miles NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is orbiting and photographing Bennu, an asteroid, at a distance of just 0.4 miles from its surface, less than the height of Earth’s tallest skyscraper and the closest any craft has orbited around a space object. The proximity will help scientists identify the best place from which to collect a sample of Bennu next year. [The Verge] $1 billion The latest from the busy Department of What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Facebook, which is under federal investigation over its privacy practices, is launching a cryptocurrency. It’s called Libra and is scheduled to launch in the next six months to a year. The company hopes to raise $1 billion to support its launch, which “could drive more e-commerce on its services and boost ads on its platforms.” [Associated Press] 284 people According to data from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, Americans have received some 126 million doses of measles vaccine in the past dozen years. During that time, 284 people filed claims that they were harmed by those vaccinations, through a federal program created to compensate such people. About half of those claims were dismissed. This “little-known database offers one way to gauge the safety of vaccines,” writes the Times. [The New York Times] 67 percent of the time If you’re interested in winning the New Hampshire primary, it helps to live nearby, like maybe the state itself, or neighboring Maine, Massachusetts or Vermont. To wit, 67 percent of the time they’ve run in the primary, candidates from those states have won. Three Democratic presidential candidates foot that geographical bill this year: Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. [FiveThirtyEight] Love digits?

While I am a staunch opponent of the pro-abortion culture, I want to make clear that I believe that God offers redemption and hope for those who have been broken by their decision to end the life of the unborn. For some it may be difficult to believe that God would forgive such a horrific […]
