10 million recruits a monthStatistical service Nielsen/ NetRatings (www. nielsen - netratings. com) has delivered the report on global tendencies in Internet development for the second quarter of current year. The data cited in this research compels to reflect: whether so the Internet - crisis how it paint web - journalists is rigid?
the first and main: the network population continues to grow impressive rates. Only for May - July, 2001 regular audience of the Internet have joined about 30 million persons. Total number www - users in the world to the beginning of August, according to Nielsen/ NetRatings, - 459 million persons.
the second: the dangerous warp in regional structure of network audience is gradually corrected. If earlier almost half Internet - users lived in the North America now citizens of the USA and Canada make about 40 % from total number www - servers (in the first quarter 2001 - 41 %). Thus activity of Americans in a network does not decrease. According to company ABCNEWS. com, in the last two days the number of the Americans, regularly making it - lajnovye purchases, has increased twice. 37 % of citizens of the USA in August of this year have made at least one purchase through the Internet.
is shorter, “ crisis “ - too strong word for the situation characteristic on the Internet - the market. And that last year have gone on the thousand world dotcom - businessmen and hundred thousand employees of the network industry have lost work, - not accident. More likely, growth costs.

Search for work, work
In August, 2001 in Russia, according to Goskomstat searches, was about seven million unemployed. Thus employers have officially registered more than one million free vacancies. It is no wonder that the Internet - the sites helping with job search and workers, enjoy wide popularity.
the first place in a heading “ Work “ rating Rambler regularly occupies “ The Internet - agency of employment Job. ru “ (www. job. ru). At the moment of delivery of this number “ the Authorities “ the site contained 19 thousand resume from competitors and 19 thousand vacancies from employers. It would Seem, distribute all resumes to all employers and close a site. But not all so is simple. For example, last week work on a speciality in Moscow by means of Job. ru 91 professional journalist searched. And vacancies for them on a site was only 37.
Hardly there are less than vacancies and the resume on site SuperJob. ru. But here there is a special section “ Work abroad “ (164 vacancies at the moment of number delivery). It will be curious to glance also in section “ Exclusive vacancies “. Here, for example: the large holding searches to itself for the general director for work at office. For your consent offer $3 thousand month, the office car, a mobile phone and 500 persons in submission.
There is, however, an opinion that good work can be found only on acquaintance. Necessary communications can be fastened on site E - xecutive (www. e - xecutive. ru/). Personnel agency Ward Howell Int., the author of this project, positions E - xecutive as “ constantly operating in a mode on - line community of managers - professionals “. Last week the site was a place of meetings for 4744 directors, chiefs of departments and other versions of heads.
at last, it is possible to glance on on - line - the version of the newspaper of free announcements “ From hand to hand “ (www. izrukvruki. ru). Here any employer can find the employee for all tastes. Here, for example: “ the Instructor on samurajskomu to monastic boxing searches for a permanent job at the private person in its territory. A wide experience. Igor Valentinovich “.
Be protected a cable
Who the main enemy of the businessman doing business on the Internet? Spiteful hackers, artful competitors, stupid employees - the list is opened also a point is not put. But Australian e - businessmen will begin this list with razdolbaev - seamen.
in the middle of August the Russian dry-cargo ship “ Maxim Mihajlov “ peacefully drifted on spot-check of Sydney. However, on a course the vessel has unintentionally dropped an anchor in water. But this fact has not prevented peace slackness of a command, “ Maxim Mihajlov “ continued movement. Meanwhile in Australia the panic has begun: korezhivshy a bottom the anchor has torn the basic cable of communication connecting Green continent with New Zealand. The Internet - the traffic between two countries gauging at some o`clock.
and for two weeks before the unknown vessel has torn a cable providing the Internet - connection between Australia and America. And even earlier, in November, 2000, seafarers have broken the channel connecting the fifth continent with Europe and Asia. More than two thirds of Australian users for some time have lost access to world resources. Clearly, why the Australian Internet surfers dislike seamen?
to the Russian users, however, too is what to remember. In April, 1999 the workers reconstructing the October railway, have casually broken a traffic light. Having fallen, the traffic light mast has interrupted a cable, providing to half Russian the Internet - users an exit on foreign servers. On communication restoration has left almost six hours.
