Organizers say the intimacy forces people to talk. This year, the 54th conference, there is a palpable sense the world is becoming a more dangerous place. "This year we meet at a critical...

David Ramos/Getty The naming of events at the Winter Olympics offers an odd inconsistency in which female athletes are sometimes referred to as "women" and others are "ladies." It turns out the IOC does not have an editorial stance on which term to use and defers to the individual sports. A new program aimed at eliminating the portrayal of gender bias could lead to more consistency in how events are named. At the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, 2,952 athletes are expected to compete and 43% of them are female, an all-time... [Read More]

But 60 miles away from the sparkling new venues at Pyeongchang is an abandoned ski resort that may be a preview of what's to come after the Games are over. As we've seen time and time again, Olympic venues are often left to fall into disrepair if the host city can't find a way to repurpose the facilities or lacks the resources to do so.

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Germany, Japan, India, and the U.K. are key video markets for Amazon. Amazon will spend almost as much as Netflix will spend this year on video. Netflix will see negative cash flow again, but still an improvement. Netflix ended 2017 with over 110 million paid subscribers. That absolutely dwarfs the number of Amazon Prime and Prime Video subscribers watching video, which IHS Markit estimates totaled 44 million last year. But there are three countries where the number of users watching Prime Video outnumbers those watching Netflix: Germany, India,... [Read More]
