Trump has been a hot topic from start to finish

According to Parse.ly Insights, news pages about Trump have been viewed more than any other major topic. Parse.ly tracks content attention from hundreds of mainstream publishers around the world.

2. The Weinstein Effect
Interest in the keyword "sexual harassment" hit a record high in Google's search engine this month. Reports of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein, a prominent Hollywood producer, have sparked a heated debate on the subject this year.
Suddenly, powerful men were held accountable for sexual harassment, and dozens of exposed sexual harassers lost their jobs. Encouraged by these events, a similar hashtag has been launched on social media. Women have come together to fight sexual harassment.
3. The "failed" New York Times gave a final smile
The New York Times needs to thank Mr. Trump, and news about him has helped the paper add a record number of new subscribers this year. In the first quarter of 2017, the New York Times recorded a record number of new subscribers to 308,000.
In the first three quarters of this year, The New York Times added more than half a million subscribers, higher than for the whole of last year. The shift from an advertising-based business model to a paid subscription-based model helped the New York Times save itself.
Uber's executive team is in turmoil
Uber's executive team has changed dramatically this year as a result of a series of public relations disasters, from alleged theft of trade secrets to internal sexual harassment and sexism.
The incidents led to the departure of several executives from Uber, including co-founder Travis Kalanick. Uber, meanwhile, is looking for new candidates to fill those vacancies.
5. Digital advertising exceeds television advertising
In 2017, for the first time, global digital advertising spending surpassed television advertising.
Globally, digital advertising spending reached $209 billion, or 41 per cent, while television advertising spent $178 billion, or 35 per cent. The price of television advertising is much higher than that of digital advertising, but the loss of both suggests that television media is losing its aura in the advertising industry.
6. Bitcoin mania is sweeping the world
Bitcoin prices have risen sharply this year. This month, the price exceeded $19,000, nearly 20 times the price at the start of the year.
The rise in the price of Bitcoin has prompted everyone to either buy bitcoin or regret not buying it.
7. SoftBank eats into Silicon Valley
This year, Japan's SoftBank took part in more than half of Silicon Valley's 10 venture capital investments.

In addition, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill to support the testing and commercial use of driverless cars. A similar bill is about to be debated in the Senate.
