Sources of Info – Looking at Data From Different Areas
The domain name info has a generic top level domain within the Domain Name System of the Internet, which is also known as TLDs or top level domains. Registration requirements don’t prescribe any specific purpose, but the name itself is derived largely from info. This is also where much of the confusion comes from. Just what is this “info”, we speak of, and how does it impact on the world wide web?
If you have a look at the recent past, you will see that there have been many instances when this “info” has played its part in the news. For instance, just prior to the Iraq war, there was much talk of an impending war with Iran, and some said that they had insider info that the war would start that day. Days later the war did start, but then Iran and its relationship with the western world were discussed. Then in fall 2021 President Bush stated that oil and natural gas supplies would be up and running by the end of that year. Both of these statements turned out to be false, and yet no one seemed to take note. But what was really behind both of these events?
The truth was that these two issues were very much interlinked. While many people speculated that the Iraq war was partially due to the oil/natural gas issue, the truth was that there were several factors that came into play. Some say that the quick facts about deaths caused by accidents were correct, and that it was related to deaths caused by violence. However, the big question still remained: where did all this energy go? If everyone just knew how much oil was lost, or even how much gas was lost, then it would be easier to find out where it went – and oil and gas companies are in need of accurate information about this type of data.
For example, if we were to look at the data provided by the EIA and BP Statistical Review on Healthcare Expenditure and Consumer Spending, we could get a very clear picture of where this energy is going. The two reports showed us that there was a marked increase in the rates of deaths caused by heart disease, and a marked decrease in deaths caused by diabetes. From these quick facts it was pretty apparent that these deaths were mostly accidental, and were in direct competition with other forms of accidental deaths. This information would be valuable for companies who are researching new ways of preventing heart disease and diabetes.
As mentioned above, if we took the data from the EIA and BP Statistical Review and plugged it into our healthcare investment software, then we would find some very useful data. From here, we would be able to see exactly where money is being spent, and how much is being wasted. If we also knew about population size and differences in healthcare costs, then we would know what to do next. As you can see, the sources of data are not limited to governmental organizations, but to businesses who are interested in finding more efficient ways to spend their money.
So, as you can see, using info resources online are by no means a new phenomenon. What has changed, however, is the accessibility of this info. It used to be that you either had to go to huge libraries (which, given the time and expense required to access these sources, is probably not always a viable option) or have to spend countless hours flipping through dusty databases. Now, thanks to the internet, you can instantly get any and all information you need to know… and often faster than you thought possible.
