india VS china bribe
The Economic Times originally shared:
 
In a recent survey, three out of four Indians said their family had to pay bribes - particularly in the areas of healthcare and land ownership. The average for the rest of the world is one out of four.

300 trillon

The rapid pace of DNA sequencing is filling up storage capacity and exceeding our ability to analyze and in many cases easily transmit the raw data BGI, based in China, is the world’s largest genomics research institute, with 167 DNA sequencers producing the equivalent of 2,000 human genomes a day. ... There will probably be 30,000 human genomes sequenced by the end of this year, up from a handful a few years ago, according to the journal Nature. And that number will rise to millions in a few years. ... One near victim of the data explosion has been a federal online archive of raw sequencing data. The amount stored has more than tripled just since the beginning of the year, reaching 300 trillion DNA bases and taking up nearly 700 trillion bytes of computer memory.
DNA sequencing is becoming faster and cheaper, outrunning the ability to store, transmit and analyze the data.

Today's TED talk has a nice Google touch:

What We Learned from 5 million Books

Have you played with Google Labs' NGram Viewer? It's an addicting tool that lets you search for words and ideas in a database of 5 million books from across centuries. Erez Lieberman Aiden and Jean-Baptiste Michel show us how it works, and a few of the surprising things we can learn from 500 billion words.
