Academic Application: November 1, 2007

Flipping through the latest edition of The New York Times Upfront magazine, I discovered some fun facts that I thought I'd share with you readers. If you are in AP History, you have probably picked up a copy already and read about these "Snapshots." If you haven't, here is a brief glimpse at some of the statistics provided:

Country W/ Highest Percentage of Internet Users: Iceland (85.4%)
Religion W/ Highest Percentage of Members: Christianity (33.2%)
The World's Biggest Company: Wal-Mart Stores
Most Populous Country: China (1,318,000,000)
Language W/Highest Percentage of Speakers: Mandarin Chinese (1,075,000,000)
Country W/ Highest Life Expectancy: Japan (82 YO)
