55% – the number of Americans who start their online searches at Amazon. This is up a whopping 25% from last year. Buy Amazon stock now.

10% – the amount the US murder rate rose in 2015. This increase follows a two-decade downward trend, but the national murder rate is still about half what it was in 1991, at the peak of the violent crime wave of the late 1980s and early 1990s.

3 – the number of weeks until Facebook launches Facebook at Work – a separate version of the social network that is accessible only within the confines of a company’s internal IT systems. Great… now I have to be subjected to baby pictures from Linda in accounting :-/
