How The United States Got Hooked On Foreign Oil

The United States is predicted to become a net energy exporter by 2020. This will be the first time since 1953 that the country exports more fossil fuels than it imports. For almost a century prior, the United States of America was the largest oil producer in the world. So how did the United States get hooked on foreign oil. Every American president since Richard Nixon has pledged energy independence as a way to strengthen us geopolitically, make us more secure, or boost our economy. The story of American oil begins in 1859 in Titusville, Pennsylvania. Small amounts of oil had seeped from the ground for a long time, but no one knew how to extract it. Until, Edwin Laurentin Drake, a former conductor, was hired. After many failed attempts, he finally struck gold — black gold. The next

Willow Wants To Shake Up The Adult Diaper Market

Machine learning researcher Will Herlands got fixated on designing a better quality adult diaper. His startup Willow uses a direct-to-coonsumer model that has been popularized by companies like Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, and Casper. Several years ago, Herlands spoke with a urologist about the prevalence of bladder leakage — and the lack of products to deal with the problem. Through research, he found that products from Depend are thick and noisy as users walk while Thinx makes products designed to look like underwear that don’t absorb much liquid. That all leaves customers constantly on edge and leads to embarrassing situations. Herlands saw a big opportunity in a market that’s valued at about $8 billion globally. His mission is to design a product that is both absorbent, holdin

Why Airbus And Boeing Dominate The Sky

Airbus and Boeing dominate an already under competitive airline manufacturing industry. The duopoly owns the sky by making up 99% of global large aircraft orders and those large plane orders make up more than 90% of the total plane market according to the Teal Group, an aerospace market analysis company (regional jet manufacturers only account for 7% of the airplane market by value). The duopoly doesn’t have many competitors, but overseas competition is brewing. China’s state-run company, COMAC, is poised to make waves in the aviation manufacturing industry, but some say not for a couple decades. This is how Airbus and Boeing took over airplane manufacturing. » Subscribe to CNBC: About CNBC: From ‘Wall Street’ to ‘Main Street’ to award winning origina
