Women and Media Jobs: Infographic

This Infographic on women in Media comes from " Visualeconomics "Among the seven regions, the ranking from highest number of women employed in upper management to the lowest numbers are as follows:
1.     Eastern Europe – 48%
2.     Nordic Europe – 43.4%
3.     Western Europe –  43.20%
4.     Sub-Saharan Africa – 41.7%
5.     The Americas – 36.8%
6.     Middle East and North Africa – 35.1%
7.     Asia and Oceana – 20.7%
If you combined, all the statistical data into one huge lump sum, then roughly 35.1% of women across the world are employed in positions of some authority.
But even if women are employed in larger numbers in a given region, does that mean their salaries are high too? How do they rate when stacked up against male colleagues in the same field? Well, let’s look at the average salary for women in top-level management in each region:

Nordic Europe – $109,230.20
Eastern Europe – $27,300.28
Western Europe – $374,324.69
The Americas – $89,242.23
Sub Saharan Africa – $28,300.34
Middle East and Northern Africa – $18,332.14
Asia and Oceania – $41,986.59

In most regions, women employed in top-level management earn significantly less than their male colleagues. In the Americas, for example, men earn an average of $115,934.37. The only regions that did not follow this trend is Asia and Oceania, where men earn, on average, approximately $6000 less per year than women. So while Eastern Europe may lead the pack when it comes to promoting female employees, they earn much less on average than men in the same fields – a trend that is echoed in almost every other continent

The Information Cloudburst : Every 2 days of data on the web is as much as the total data since 2003

How much data do you you think we create on the web every day ... Well according to Google. The data on the web we create every two days is equal to the total data we have created till 2003.

  Speaking at the Techonomy conference in Lake Tahoe, CA, the first panel featured Google CEO Eric Schmidt. As moderator David Kirkpatrick was introducing him, he rattled off a massive stat. Every two days now we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003, according to Schmidt.

That’s something like five exabytes of data, he says. Let me repeat that: we create as much information in two days now as we did from the dawn of man through 2003. “The real issue is user-generated content,” Schmidt said. He noted that pictures, instant messages, and tweets all add to this. Naturally, all of this information helps Google.

But he cautioned that just because companies like his can do all sorts of things with this information, the more pressing question now is if they should. Schmidt noted that while technology is neutral, he doesn’t believe people are ready for what’s coming. “I spend most of my time assuming the world is not ready for the technology revolution that will be happening to them soon,” Schmidt said.
