#1 What online spending ratio is more accurate?

On average, men spend $220 per transaction compared to $151 per transaction for women. It is not that men shop more than women, but they spend more per transaction. Male consumers are more likely to buy higher priced items such as luxury products and electronics. Whereas women tend to buy lower-priced items such as cosmetics and food.

#2 Who coordinates the Internet?

The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is responsible for coordinating each unique identifier on the Web. Put simply, they are the ones that ensure your IP is only one and unique. What sounds entirely more heroic is that seven of their members hold seven keys to “restore” the internet if a gigantic crash should happen.

2018 identity fraud study conducted by Javelin found that 16.7 million US residents fell victims of this crime during 2017. This number represents an 8% increase from the year before, with most of the identity frauds happening because of poor online safety.
