How Unstoppable Is Google?

Is Google The Most Powerful Company In The Universe?

Google receives constant criticism about this topic. Obviously, this criticism doesn’t sit well with the Google executives. They claim the company is in a powerful position for the sole reason that users like theiHow Unstoppable Is Googler services, not because they’re forced to use them. Anybody can click instantly for a new search engine; they are in no way obliged to use google, unlike with Microsoft’s software. People chose Google over Yahoo and Bing years ago and they continue to do so.

The facts:

RevenueSinopec Group is the largest company in the world. Google is not in the top 60 list.
Market capitalization? Apple Inc. is the largest public company in the world. Google is the 4th after Exxon Mobil and Microsoft respectively.
Profits and lossesFannie Mae is the largest company in the world. Google is not in the top 30 list.
Number of employees? Walmart is the largest company in the world (2,200,000 employees), Google has 55,030 employees.
Largest information technology companies in revenueSamsung Electronics is the largest information technology company in the world. Google is the 10th after Apple Inc., Foxconn, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Amazon.com, Sony and Panasonic respectively.

So, how unstoppable is Google? They are most certainly a powerful company, but they aren’t exactly what some people make them out to be

Is Larry Page the Most Powerful Man in History?

This question may seem ridiculous. However, it is quite valid! Let’s look at some facts:

  • Google search advertising has $54 billion in cash. In the last twelve months it generated nearly $18 billion in profits. How Unstoppable Is Google
  • Together with his cofounder, Sergey Brin, Page holds a majority of t
    he voting stock in Google. The fact is: Google is a publicly traded company that essentially has private owners.
  • Brin largely defers to Page on running the company. He always has.
  • Because of that deference, Page can pretty much do what he wants with Google’s money.
  • He can, and he does.

Page has been willing to spend that cash on wildly ambitious and expensive projects, as well as many charity works. On the Google Dot Org website, the following statement appears: “Tech entrepreneurs are using innovation to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges. We invest in teams with bold ideas that create lasting global impact.”

 

How Unstoppable Is Google?

Google has 10 things they hold themselves to. On their company website, Google says “We first wrote these “10 things” when Google was just a few years old. From time to time we revisit this list to see if it still holds true. We hope it does—and you can hold us to that.” So although Google may be unstoppable, they aren’t corrupt.

Here is the list:

  1. Focus on the user and all else will follow.
  2. It’s best to do one thing really, really well.
  3. Fast is better than slow.
  4. Democracy on the web works.
  5. You don’t need to be at your desk to need an answer.
  6. You can make money without doing evil.
  7. There’s always more information out there.
  8. The need for information crosses all borders.
  9. You can be serious without a suit.
  10. Great just isn’t good enough.

Under each point, there is a long explanation. Google expands on number 6 saying, “Google is a business. The revenue we generate is derived from offering search technology to companies and from the sale of advertising displayed on our site and on other sites across the web. Hundreds of thousands of advertisers worldwide use AdWords to promote their products; hundreds of thousands of publishers take advantage of our AdSense program to deliver ads relevant to their site content.” Google goes on to talk about that they have a set of principles to guide the ads they allow. Firstly, they don’t allow irrelevant ads. Next, they don’t allow pop ups. Finally, they clearly indicate what is an ad and what isn’t. How Unstoppable Is Google

In conclusion, Google is a very powerful company. However, they aren’t abusive of this power. Google is unstoppable in some aspects, but their ambitions are for the good of the world.

Easy and Healthy Recipes for Students

Are you ever tired of cafeteria food? Ever plan a day outing and wish you had brought a convenient picnic? Are you ever at home and too lazy to go out to eat? Here are some easy and healthy recipes for students that you should have at your fingertips so that you can expand your eating options.

Smoothies:

Smoothies are extremely convenient and easy to bring along in the car or to class. They make a good breakfast, or snack anytime of day. Instead of dropping by Blenders, you can whip something up yourself.

How to Make a Smoothie/Milkshake:

To make a smoothie, you will need a couple main ingredients:

  1. frozen fruit (frozen strawberries, mangos, berries, pineapple… whatever you like!)
  2. bananas
  3. ice cream (or yoghurt)
  4. milk (for milkshake.. Tip: try it sometime with almond milk) or juice (for smoothie)

Those are the main ingredients. This makes for a really easy and healthy recipe for students. Once you start making smoothies regularly, you can modify the recipe and just blend together whatever you please! It is so simple and easy.

I have a video tutorial where I show you all how easy this is to make!

Muffins:

Muffins make for another great food. They aren’t just a dessert, although they make a nice little sweet treat. Breakfast muffins are good if your on the go and they are easy to bring or pack.

Make a large batch of these muffins and have a healthy to-go breakfast at any time!

Salads

Lastly, salads are an amazing way to go. And I’m not just talking about some good old lettuce. Potato salads are easily thrown together and last a long time. The perfect on-the-go lunch for any day!

Author: Minnie K

Ingredients

  • 14 ounces uncooked rotini pasta
  • 2 cucumbers, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 3/4 cup pitted black olives, sliced
  • 1 cup Italian-style salad dressing

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and cool by running cold water over the pasta in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Combine cooked and cooled pasta with the cucumbers, onion, tomatoes, and olives in a large bowl. Pour the Italian dressing over the salad and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.

 

Of course, I recommend the traditional salads as well; here are a few great recipes:

Hearty Tuna Salad: Mix cannellini beans, capers, pickled mushrooms, celery and olives; stir in mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss with cherry tomatoes and oil-packed tuna.

Southwestern Cobb: Purée equal parts mayo and buttermilk with hot sauce, cilantro, scallion, orange zest, garlic and salt. Drizzle over romaine, diced avocado and jicama, orange segments and crumbly sharp cheese.

Tomatoes with Mint: Sprinkle heirloom tomato chunks with salt, pepper and sliced shallots; set aside 5 minutes. Top with fresh mint; drizzle with olive oil and white wine vinegar.

Chickpea Tapas: Mix chickpeas, capers and green olives with chopped chorizo, celery, red onion, parsley and cilantro. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper; top with manchego.

Pasta Caprese: Mix chilled cooked fusilli, diced mozzarella, chopped tomatoes, basil, toasted pine nuts and minced garlic; season with salt and pepper.

Chicken-Mango Salad: Whisk 1 tablespoon each lemon juice and honey, some grated ginger and 1/4 cup olive oil; toss with shredded grilled chicken, mesclun greens and diced mango.

Oranges with Mozzarella: Stack mozzarella and orange slices with basil. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

Dilled Egg Salad: Mix mayo, dijon mustard, dill, and salt and pepper. Stir in coarsely chopped hard-boiled eggs and diced dill pickles.

Cantaloupe Carpaccio: Slice cantaloupe extra-thin (a mandoline works best). Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice; top with pepper and ricotta.Easy and Healthy Recipes for Students
