    Why Amazon is Worth $1 Trillion

    This video is sponsored by Brilliant. The first 200 to use the link in the description get 20% off their annual premium subscription. On September 4th, 2018, Amazon became a 1 trillion dollar company. That’s twice what it was a year ago, and only a month after Apple first broke the record. Now, if your name rhymes with Real deGrasse Bison, you might point out that 1 trillion is a pretty arbitrary milestone, that new years is fake, leap day is a lie, and the phrase “time flies” is scientifically inaccurate. But it’s still a good excuse to stop and ask, Why? Why is Amazon valued higher than Walmart, Samsung,…

    Spinning HDPE Grocery Bags into Cord by Hand without Spinning Tools | Plarn Yarn Upcycle by GemFOX

    I’ll be showing you how I made the cord to make this bag. You may have seen in a previous video We made plarn roving from grocery bags. This bag is more like a basket. It’s firm and a little bit more coarse because of the twist. So let’s make plarn twine or plarn cord. So now we have 16 loops. Instead of joining them together the way we did for when we made the plarm roving I’m gonna do it a little bit differently. For this I’m going to use a thin crochet hook. I think this is a 2.5 millimeter, and I’ll show you why it’s good to…

    The Future of Ecommerce: Disrupting Business Methods Worldwide

    So, what’s the future look like for the E-Commerce industry worldwide? Let’s talk about the details. Today, we’re going to talk about the global E-Commerce industry, and it’s impossible to talk about E-Commerce without starting with the world’s giant, Amazon.

Now, Amazon makes a lot of its money selling for other parties; that is, the Amazon marketplace lets all types of people, all types of vendors sell their products through the Amazon platform. In the same way, China’s E-Commerce giant, Alibaba, has become a massive reseller for other vendors; in other…
