Battle royale video games expected to make $20 billion in 2019: CHARTS - Business Insider
Battle-royale games like 'Fortnite' are expected to make $20 billion in 2019 July 20, 2018 at 01:09PM

Free-to-play game "Fortnite Battle Royale" recently passed the $1 billion revenue mark thanks solely to its in-app purchases, according to a new report from SuperData Research.

The multi-platform game sky-rocketed to super fandom following its release in fall 2017, and is now one of the many survival-based video games in which players are pitted against up to 100 other players to see who can fight their way to be the last one standing. These games are part of a genre known as "battle royale", and as this chart from Statista shows, it's a genre that's working for consumers and, as a result, for creators.

Battle Royale games are expected to make at least $2 billion in revenue in 2018 — about seven times the amount they made last year. As more studios jump on the trend, those amounts are expected to increase across platforms again in 2019 (more than double the 2018 revenue for Premium Consoles) increasing revenues twelve-fold within two years' time.

Designers Are From Venus And Developers Are From Mars [Infographic]
Designers Are From Venus And Developers Are From Mars July 20, 2018 at 11:22AM

Designers and developers are poles apart when it comes to thinking alike and making decisions. It is next to impossible to get them to agree on something. If one wants creativity to rule, the other wants reason to take over. It is a challenge to look for a common ground between the two but here is Arpatech’s humble attempt.

And it shouldn’t be just any space but a flexible workspace where they can think creatively, focus on the work at hand better, and collaborate with their peers is the right place for them to be.

The following infographic courtesy of Figari Group, looks at how to transform a boring office into a flexible work-space.

Migrants flock to Gauteng July 20, 2018 at 10:32AM

According to the Mid-year population estimates report for 2018 released by Statistics South Africa, the population of South Africa is estimated at 57,7 million as at 1 July 2018. While births and deaths are considered the main drivers of population change, migration continues to be significant, not only demographically but politically, economically and socially.

The report shows that South Africa is estimated to receive a net immigration of 1,02 million people between 2016 and 2021. Most international migrants settle in Gauteng (47,5%) while the least are found in the Northern Cape province (0,7%). Gauteng is considered the economic hub of the country, attracting international migrants as well as domestic migrants from rural provinces such as Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape.

People migrate for a number of reasons; these can be categorised under economic, social-political, cultural or environmental. These categories also relate to what is known as “push” or “pull” factors. The economic strength of Gauteng relates to “pull” factors that influence its attractiveness to migrants. Gauteng receives the highest number of in-migrants for the period 2016 to 2021. Better economic opportunities, jobs, and the promise of a better life are some of the factors that make Gauteng an attractive destination.

The Western Cape receives the second highest number of in-migrants for the period 2016 to 2021. In this instance, the “push” factors are what may drive people from the Eastern Cape (EC) towards the Western Cape. Poor economic activity and lack of job opportunities are strong push factors for migration. According to the Quarterly Labour Force Survey for the first quarter of 2018, the EC had the highest unemployment rate in the country at 35,6%.


Movements within and across South Africa’s borders impact not only the population structure of the country and provinces within South Africa, but potentially the economic, political and social composition of a community, province and the country as a whole. Understanding and planning for current and projected migration patterns in South Africa is imperative for continued growth and development.

Statistics South Africa, in collaboration with the Department of Social Development will be hosting a National Conference on Migration and Urbanisation in South Africa in 2018. If you would like more information about the conference or you would like to present a paper, please click here.

How 2,000 People Define The American Dream July 20, 2018 at 08:11AM

How 2,000 People Define The American Dream

By Charles | source:ThermoSoft Jul 20th, 2018

What does it mean to “make it” in the U.S.? In the land of opportunity, the American dream lives on — but the definition has changed over time.

We’d all love to retire young or win the lottery, but our standards for success are surprisingly attainable. Perhaps unsurprisingly, people aspire to work from home, have more time off, and spend fewer hours commuting to work, which creates a work-life balance. Is the American dream accessible to everyone? In a perfect world, everyone would have a chance to live their best lives, but we all define success differently.

The top sign of success, according to Americans? Not having to worry about medical bills and being able to donate money to charities and the people you love. Fascinatingly, 77 percent of the people interviewed for today’s infographic wouldn’t want to earn more than $1 million annually. More money, more problems?

Americans also think that traveling more, having a nice house and getting advanced degrees can make someone successful. Almost all of the people surveyed say money is stopping them from feeling successful — but a few people said their loved ones are holding them back.

Being able to exclaim, “Mama, I made it!” is a lofty goal, but if you’re realistic about what you can achieve, you may be surprised at how quickly you reach your version of the American dream.

My goal is to grab life by the reins, though I often get stuck in front of the internet.

What to take to a festival: Friends, drink... and a giant bar chart - BBC News
With his guidance we ran what's known as a k-means cluster analysis on our data. It's a way of taking absolutely loads of data and putting it into smaller groups or clusters.
In the real world, the technique is usually used in marketing to target people with adverts based on what other, similar people are into.
But in this case we used our scores to split us into four pairs based on who, statistically, had the most similar music tastes.
That person then had to spend the day with their statistically-chosen partner - and only watch bands together.
