Fortnite ‘Dominated’ Pornhub In 2018

Now, before anyone drags their dramatic and judgemental a** to critique the subject of this post, you should know Pornhub claims that their site have been visited 33.5 billion times this year, basically averaging 92 million visits in a day and I can bet my salary you are one of the multitude so pipe down.

So back to the subject matter, Pornhub published their year in review for 2018 and the typical numbers to be expected were highlighted.

A couple of things jumped out though… the first thing is the amount of data people of the world are using to stream debauchery 😂

So it’s pretty much old gist that Pornhub is leading the charge in the porn industry… but what’s interesting though is the link back to the top game everyone is playing now — Fortnite.

Fortnite comes up at number 2 of the top search queries on Pornhub in 2018… number 1 search query is the skeleton in Don Trump’s cupboard — Stormy Daniels.

ASLM Partners Africa CDC on Africa Collaborative Initiative to Advance Diagnostics

The African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM) has partnered with the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention to address existing barriers towards advancing the diagnostic agenda in Africa. This they have done through the launch of the Africa Collaborative Initiative to Advance Diagnostics (AFCAD).

This strategic partnership was announced during a press conference held on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, to increase access to quality diagnostics towards the achievement of universal health coverage in Africa.

Speaking at the conference, Dr. Yenew Kebede, the Head of Laboratory Division, Africa CDC, stated that Universal Health Coverage is a priority for African countries to attain inclusive and sustainable growth, noting that many diseases remain undiagnosed due to poor diagnostic capacity in most African countries.

He said: “The limited access to essential tests and slow introduction of innovative technologies result in insufficient disease case finding and hampers access to, and monitoring of, treatment. Barriers to diagnostics prevent the African continent from becoming free of epidemic-prone diseases and compromise the achievement of the health agenda of the African Union”.

Other partners on this initiative include: Institut de Recherche, de Surveillance Epidémiologique et de Formation (IRESSEF), World Health Organization Africa Regional Office (WHO-AFRO), …read more

UBS Unveils Global Investment Outlook For 2019

Investors will need to weather more volatility in order to capture opportunities in 2019, according to the Year Ahead report from UBS, the world’s leading wealth manager. Global economic growth will decelerate next year to 3.6% from 3.8% in 2018, and company earnings will grow at a slower rate. However, a 2019 recession still looks unlikely, and the price of many financial assets has already moved to reflect uncertain prospects.

UBS Global Wealth Management’s Chief Investment Office (CIO) enters the year with an overweight position in global equities. However, as the market cycle matures, investors should diversify and hedge their portfolios to guard against volatility as well as political and other risks. They should also take advantage of growth in fields like sustainable and impact investing, and pockets of value where financial asset prices are excessively low.

Mark Haefele, Chief Investment Officer at UBS Global Wealth Management, says: “Investors should retain positions in global equities but plan for market volatility. A slight slowdown in economic and earnings growth doesn’t mean no growth, and the recent sell-off has left a number of assets more attractively valued, but investors must also take into account the tense geopolitical environment as well as monetary policy tightening.”
