"Tennis Players with the Most Grand Slam Titles"

Technically, Margaret Court has the most grand slam titles of all time. However,only 11 titles were received in the “Open Era.” Some people argue this means she did not play against the best players. In addition, her 1966 title was awarded to her by forfeit to an injury from her opponent prior to the match.

Countries moving away & towards Democracy

The world is becoming more authoritarian as non-democratic regimes become even more brazen in their repression and many democratic governments suffer from backsliding by adopting their tactics of restricting free speech and weakening the rule of law, exacerbated by what threatens to become a "new normal" of Covid-19 restrictions.


For the fifth consecutive year, the number of countries moving in an authoritarian direction exceeds the number of countries moving in a democratic direction.


In fact, the number moving in the direction of authoritarianism is three times the number moving towards democracy.

"Gross Domestic Product"

With second-quarter GDP data due out Thursday, the question of whether the economy is in recession will be on everyone’s mind.


The economy stands at least a fair a chance of hitting the rule-of-thumb recession definition of two consecutive quarters with negative GDP readings.


The last two recessions were in 2020 and 2008-2009, as annotated in the chart above.


Should inflation stay at high levels, that then will trigger the biggest recession catalyst of all, namely Federal Reserve interest rate hikes.


Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said “we just don’t have” conditions consistent with a recession.

"Average screen time per country 2021"

Worldwide, the average person spends a total of 6 hours and 57 minutes looking at a screen each day (for internet-connected activities).


The average American spends 7 hours and 4 minutes looking at a screen every day. This is slightly below the worldwide average and around 45 minutes longer than the British who average 6 hours and 12 minutes of screen time per day.


But it is nearly four hours less than the biggest screen-time consumers, South Africans, who average around 10 hours and 46 minutes a day.


On the whole, the biggest screen-time consumers are located in Africa, Asia, and South America.
