1 mln




1,000,000

1,000,000 (one million), or one thousand thousand, is the natural number following 999,999 and preceding 1,000,001. The word is derived from the early Italian millione (milione in modern Italian), from mille, «thousand», plus the augmentative suffix -one. [1] It is commonly abbreviated as m [2] [3] [4] (not to be confused with the metric prefix for 6997100000000000000♠ 1 × 10 −3 ) or M; [5] [6] further MM («thousand thousands», from Latin «Mille»; not to be confused with the Roman numeral MM = 2,000), mm, or mn in financial contexts. [7] [ better source needed ]

In scientific notation, it is written as 7006100000000000000♠ 1 × 10 6 or 10 6 . [8] Physical quantities can also be expressed using the SI prefix mega (M), when dealing with SI units; for example, 1 megawatt (1 MW) equals 1,000,000 watts.

The meaning of the word «million» is common to the short scale and long scale numbering systems, unlike the larger numbers, which have different names in the two systems.

The million is sometimes used in the English language as a metaphor for a very large number, as in «Not in a million years» and «You’re one in a million», or a hyperbole, as in «I’ve walked a million miles» and «You’ve asked the million-dollar question».

Even though it is often stressed that counting to precisely a million would be an exceedingly tedious task due to the time and concentration required, there are many ways to bring the number «down to size» in approximate quantities, ignoring irregularities or packing effects.

  • Information: Not counting spaces, the text printed on 136 pages of an Encyclopædia Britannica, or 600 pages of pulp paperback fiction contains approximately one million characters.
  • Length: There are one million millimeters in a kilometer, and roughly a million sixteenths of an inch in a mile. A typical cartire might rotate a million times in a 1,200-mile (1,900 km) trip, while the engine would do several times that number of revolutions.
  • Fingers: If the width of a human finger is 2.2 cm ( 7 ⁄8 in), then a million fingers lined up would cover a distance of 22 km (14 mi). If a person walks at a speed of 4 km/h (2.5 mph), it would take them approximately five and a half hours to reach the end of the fingers.
  • Area: A square a thousand objects or units on a side contains a million such objects or square units, so a million holes might be found in less than three square yards of window screen, or similarly, in about one half square foot (400–500 cm 2 ) of bed sheet cloth. A city lot 70 by 100 feet is about a million square inches.
  • Volume: The cube root of one million is only one hundred, so a million objects or cubic units is contained in a cube only a hundred objects or linear units on a side. A million grains of table salt or granulated sugar occupies only about 64 ml (2.3 imp fl oz; 2.2 US fl oz), the volume of a cube one hundred grains on a side. One million cubic inches would be the volume of a small room only ​ 8 1 ⁄3 feet long by ​ 8 1 ⁄3 feet wide by ​ 8 1 ⁄3 feet high.
  • Mass: A million cubic millimeters (small droplets) of water would have a volume of one litre and a mass of one kilogram. A million millilitres or cubic centimetres (one cubic metre) of water has a mass of a million grams or one tonne.
  • Weight: A million 80-milligram (1.2 gr) honey bees would weigh the same as an 80 kg (180 lb) person.
  • Landscape: A pyramidal hill 600 feet (180 m) wide at the base and 100 feet (30 m) high would weigh about a million tons.
  • Computer: A display resolution of 1,280 by 800 pixels contains 1,024,000 pixels.
  • Money: A USD bill of any denomination weighs 1 gram (0.035 oz). There are 454 grams in a pound. One million $1 bills would weigh 2,204.62 pounds (1,000.00 kg), or just over 1 ton.
  • Time: A million seconds is 11.57 days.

In Indian English and Pakistani English, it is also expressed as 10 lakh or 10 Lac. Lakh is derived from ‘laksh’ for 100,000 in Sanskrit.

UPDATE 1-Saudi oil exports seen down 1 mln bpd in Jan from Nov levels — sources

(Adds details, context)

By Rania El Gamal

VIENNA, Dec 8 (Reuters) — Saudi Arabia’s crude oil exports are expected to drop next month by some 1 million barrels per day (bpd) from November levels, two sources familiar with the matter said on Saturday.

The world’s top oil exporter is expected to ship about 7.3 million bpd in January, one of the sources said, due to softening seasonal demand and as Riyadh follows through on a global deal to cut output to prevent a build up in oil supplies.

The sources did not give a figure for December oil exports.

OPEC and its Russia-led allies agreed on Friday in Vienna to slash oil production by more than the market expected in a bid to shore up prices despite pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump to reduce the price of crude.

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said in Vienna this week that the kingdom’s oil exports would be less than 8 million bpd in December, down from around 8.3 million bpd in November.

He also said Saudi Arabia would pump about 10.2 million bpd in January, down from about 10.7 million bpd in December.

His ministry tweeted on Saturday that the decision taken by the oil exporters who met in Vienna would be “reflected in the stability and the equilibrium of the oil market.”

Fired Merrill broker ordered to pay over $1 mln

* Merrill adviser fired after 8 months at firm

* Fired for attempting to inherit assets from client

* FINRA panel ordered him to repay more than $1 mln bonus

By Helen Kearney

NEW YORK, Jan 7 (Reuters) — A financial adviser fired by Merrill Lynch for alleged misconduct in 2009 has been ordered by an arbitration panel to repay more than $1 million of his recruiting bonus to the brokerage firm.

Charles Bishop worked for Merrill in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for eight months before being terminated in April 2009. The firm accused him of attempting to inherit assets from a client who had died, according to filings with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

Merrill Lynch, a unit of Bank of America Corp ( BAC.N ), requires advisers who are named by clients in their wills to inform the firm.

Bishop now has to repay $993,000 of the recruiting bonus that he received when he joined the firm in August 2008, plus interest at the rate of 3.95 percent from April 2009, according to the panel’s ruling, posted on FINRA’s website on Friday.

Bishop also has to pay $125,000 for Merrill’s attorney fees.

“It’s unusual for a FINRA panel to require an adviser to repay their whole recruitment award in a situation like this, unless his behavior really warranted it,” said Thomas Lewis, an attorney at Stark & Stark who represents financial advisers.

After years of frenzied recruiting among brokerages attempting to outbid each for top advisers, those same firms are now aggressively seeking to recover any payments from advisers who leave prematurely, said Lewis.

Recruiting bonuses are typically structured as promissory notes that are forgiven over a number of years.

Prior to moving to Merrill Lynch, Bishop spent a decade at Morgan Stanley ( MS.N ), also in Fort Lauderdale, according to FINRA filings.

A Merrill Lynch spokesman said the firm was pleased with the decision.

Bishop’s attorney, William Amlong of the Amlong Firm in Fort Lauderdale, did not immediately return calls for comment. (Reporting by Helen Kearney, editing by Matthew Lewis)

Facebook removes fake accounts tied to Iran that lured over 1 mln followers

WASHINGTON, Oct 26 (Reuters) — Facebook Inc said on Friday it had deleted accounts originating in Iran that attracted more than 1 million U.S. and British followers, its latest effort to combat disinformation activity on its platform.

Social media companies are struggling to stop attempts by people inside and outside the United States to spread false information on their platforms with goals ranging from destabilizing elections by stoking hardline positions to supporting propaganda campaigns.

The fake Facebook accounts originating in Iran mostly targeted American liberals, according to the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, a thinktank that works with Facebook to study propaganda online.

Facebook said it removed 82 pages, groups and accounts on Facebook and Instagram that represented themselves as being American or British citizens, then posted on «politically charged» topics such as race relations, opposition to U.S. President Donald Trump and immigration, Facebook’s head of cybersecurity policy, Nathaniel Gleicher, said in a blog post.

In total, the removed accounts attracted more than 1 million followers. The Iran-linked posts were amplified through less than $100 in advertising on Facebook and Instagram, Facebook said.

While the accounts originated in Iran, it was unclear if they were linked to the Tehran government, according to Facebook, which shared the information with researchers, other technology companies and the British and U.S. governments.

The Iranian U.N. mission did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The action follows takedowns in August by Facebook, Twitter Inc and Alphabet Inc of hundreds of accounts linked to Iranian propaganda.

The latest operation was more sophisticated in some instances, making it difficult to identify, Gleicher said during a press conference phone call on Friday.

Although most of accounts and pages had existed only since earlier this year, they attracted more followers than the accounts removed in August, some of which dated back to 2013. The previously suspended Iranian accounts and pages garnered roughly 983,000 followers before being removed.

«It looks like the intention was to embed in highly active and engaged communities by posting inflammatory content, and then insert messaging on Saudi and Israel which amplified the Iranian government’s narrative,» said Ben Nimmo, an information defense fellow with the Digital Forensic Research Lab.

«Most of the posts concerned divisive issues in the U.S., and posted a liberal or progressive viewpoint, especially on race relations and police violence,» Nimmo said.

Social media companies have increasingly targeted foreign interference on their platforms following criticism that they did not do enough to detect, halt and disclose Russian efforts to use their platforms to influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential race.

Iran and Russia have denied allegations that they have used social media platforms to launch disinformation campaigns.

Komentarzy pozytywnych jeszcze nie spotkałem, ale negatywne jak najbardziej. Głównie na różnych blogach w komentarzach i dziwnym trafem komentarze te znikały kilka dni po opublikowaniu. Są różne narzędzia (choćby google alerts), dzięki którym w momencie gdy ktoś o nas w internecie gdzieś napisze, dostajemy komunikat. Podejrzewam, że pan Jacek ładnie prosi administratorów o usunięcie tych komentarzy i stąd 0 opinii.

Czyli wyrzucone pieniądze czy był jakiś zysk? Pieniądze tym sposobem zarabiania się chociaż zwróciły? Zastanawiam się na ile jest to opłacalne..

Wiesz na czym polega sukces finansowy pana Jacka? Na tym, że zarabia na naiwności ludzkiej. Nie wiem czy świadomie czy nie, bo z jego wypowiedzi wynika, że on naprawdę wierzy w geniusz swoich kursów. Ale uwierz, że z tego kursu nie dowiesz się więcej niż z przeciętnego darmowego poradnika.

Powiem Ci dlaczego nie ma sensu tego kupować. Pomińmy fakt, że został on wykonany beznadziejnie. Został też przemyślany beznadziejnie. Ten kurs nie miał prawa się udać, bo sam koncept był nieudany. Otóż kurs polega na tym, że pan Jacek przedstawia jakie są sposoby zarabiania (że można sprzedawać na allegro, zainteresować się programami afiliacyjnymi, napisać ebooka itp). Mówi pobieżnie o każdym z tych sposobów, wyjaśniając jedynie PODSTAWY PODSTAW. Jak powszechnie wiadomo, jak coś jest do wszystkiego, to jest do niczego. Na konferencji z allegro dowiadujesz się jak stworzyć aukcję i wybrać produkt. Przy czym najbardziej skomplikowaną rzeczą jaką stąd wyciągniesz jest to, że twoja aukcja ma wzbudzać zaufanie, zdjęcia mają być dobrej jakości, a produkt musi być niszowy. A te podstawy podstaw możesz równie dobrze znaleźć na pierwszej lepszej stronie dotyczącej zarabiania w internecie, których uwierz mi — jest mnóstwo.

Jak chcesz napiszę Ci o czym dana część jest:
1. wstęp
2. wstęp allegro itp
3. właściwie nie wiem o czym to jest
4. programy partnerskie, allegro
5. infoprodukt
6. domeny
7. strategia dążenia do miliona
8. ebook, strona sprzedażowa, email marketing
9. darmowy ruch
10. testy A/B
11. reklama wirusowa
12. copywriting
13. Płatny ruch
14. lista mailingowa
15. amazon
16. określanie ceny
17. określanie ceny
18. szkolenie na żywo
19. Konferencja i płatna subskrybcja
20.właściwie nie wiem o czym to jest
21. zaawansowana subskrypcja facebook
22. dlaczego nieruchomości
23. lista mailingowa
24. dopiero za tydzień będzie odblokowana ostatnia część

Wpisz sobie każde hasło w google i poczytaj dwa pierwsze lepsze artykuły na każdy temat — będziesz wiedział tyle co z kursu.

Jak widać mamy 24 części, każda z nich trwa 1h-2h. Ale tak naprawdę każdą z części można by skrócić do 20min, bo mniej więcej tyle czasu przeznaczone jest na konkrety. Większość czasu słuchasz o: gadkach motywacyjnych, dokładnie takich samych jak na kanale Jacka na youtube. Nie powiem, bo to motywuje, ale nie tego oczekuję od kursu. Poza tym był on nagrywany ‘na żywca’, tak jak zwykłe webinary. Tzn nie zostały usunięte niepotrzebne fragmenty, takie jak cisza albo problemy techniczne. W konsekwencji czekasz aż pan Jacek się namyśli co powiedzieć albo jak próbuje coś naprawić. A ciebie szlak jasny trafia. Poza tym jakość dźwięku tragiczna (jak na kurs za tyle pieniędzy).

Podsumowując nie polecam. Wiadomo, że jakaś tam wiedza jest, bo trochę doświadczenia pan Jacek ma. Ale wiedza ta jest przestarzała i zbyt powierzchniowa. Pan Jacek za bardzo skupia się na podstawach zamiast dać jakąś bardziej zaawansowaną wiedzę. Sam na jednej z konferencji dotyczącej ebooków stwierdził, że jak piszemy poradnik trzeba sobie wyobrażać jakbyśmy tłumaczyli coś dziecku. Ale dziecko ma trochę inny umysł niż człowiek dorosły. Człowiek dorosły sam potrafi dojść do niektórych rzeczy, a konkretnie, do większości rzeczy przedstawionych w kursie.

Wg mnie są to pieniądze wyrzucone w błoto. W internecie w ciągu 6 miesięcy zarobiłem ok. 500zł, ale nawet tego nie przypisałbym kursowi.
