200 years since the battle of Waterloo

People in Europe has hated each other in thousands of years. Today, it is 200 years since the battle of Waterloo. The date was Sunday, 18 June, 1815. Some people say this was the early start of NATO, because allied forces at this time was British, Scottish, Flemish, Irish, Welsh, Walloon, German, Belgium and Dutch soldiers.

After 1815, the norm for the British arms has been coalitions. From Crimea in the 1850`s to the World War I and II, and wars on Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan.

«It`s a historical distortion: Britain could not defeat Napoleon without the aid of continental partners,» Charles Esdaile, a military historian at the University of Liverpool said.

They all thwarted the attempts of European domination by the French general and emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte. The battle in Waterloo was the start of the end of the Napoleonic Wars, which started in 1803 and ended in 1815. 5 million people were killed.

Napoleon`s army consisted of around 69,000 men; 48,000 infantry, 14,000 cavalry, and 7,000 artillery with 250 guns. Welligton`s troops consisted of 67,000 men; 50,000 infantry, 11,000 cavalry, and 6,000 artillery with 150 guns.

The author of Les Miserables, Victor Hugo, said the battle in Waterloo wasn`t a battle. He said: «Waterloo is not a battle; it is the changing face of the universe.»

Historians say Waterloo laid the groundwork for NATO and the United Nations, and only 36% of Welligton`s army were British. Winston Churchill mentioned «united nations» as the famous global organisation and it paved the way for the U.K to become a global power.

Prussia had 50,000 soldiers, and became a part of Germany later on.

French had long been the world`s superpower. Who knows that France have been one out of three to be the world`s superpower in 500 years? The Vienna Treaty started right after the battle of Waterloo, and the U.K got territorial possessions (South Africa, Trinidad and Sri Lanka).

The U.K used this base to control its vast colonial empire.

Britain didn`t have much competition until the U.S emerged as a superpower during the World War II. The demand for American products increased during the Napoleonic Wars, as the European industry was hit hard during the war and their demand for products declined.

The Anglo-American War in 1812 combined with the British and French blockades disrupted the trade, and the battle heralded an age of German nationalism, and later on to World War II. The Prussian state created nationalism which formed the new German Empire after 1870.

The nationalism escalated and led to the hyper-nationalism which again led to the Nazi Party and the Third Reich.

This formed the future of the European Union.

Napoleon wanted a single state in Europe and the battle in Waterloo was a battle between different ideologies. Napoleon wanted to control Europe. He wanted to establish a European empire under his dictatorship since 1804.

But the allies wanted something different. The Allies won over France and Napoleon`s concepts such as Napoleon`s French Revolutionary Empire and Holy Roman Empire before it.

But Napoleon is not the only one to try to take control over Europe, and we can see the same idea of a pan-European state today, which is exactly 200 years since the battle in Waterloo. Many people in Europe doesn`t like the idea and do not buy the new ideology.

The Congress of Vienna declared Napoleon an outlaw on 13 March, 1815. Four days later, the U.K, Russia, Austria and Prussia mobilised armies to defeat Napoleon.

Napoleon attacked the allies in the hope of destroying them before they could join in a coordinated invasion of France with other members of the coalition. Napoleon was defeated after a few hours, and the coalition forces entered France and restored King Louis XVIII to the French throne.

Napoleon abdicated, eventually surrendering to Captain Maitland of HMS Bellerophon, part of the British blockade, and was exiled to Saint Helena where he died in 1821.

About 100 years later (1920), Adolf Hitler came to the power in the German Nazi Party.

Fitbit are ready to go public and the pioneer in wearable fitness-tracking devices will raise more than $600 million as soon as later on today, and this will be the fifth-largest U.S IPO in 2015. The company will go public tomorrow, on thursday.

Innovalon Holdings raised $685. GoDaddy raised $520, while Etsy raised $307. As you can see, Fitbit would be one of the largest tech debuts so far in 2015.

Some investors are sceptical about the company and its shares. Are they able to compete against Apple Watch, they said? According to Nasdaq their share price is set to $17 – $19 each share, and shares offered/outstanding is 34,500,000.

The company has a strong revenue growth and annual profit, and there is a strong buzz among investors before they go public, and this is building up a strong demand for Fitbit`s shares. The firm will be valued at $3,7 billion with its estimated price range of $17 – $19 a share.

Fitbit doubled the number of devices sold to 10,9 million from 4,5 million between 2013 and 2014. Revenue tripled in the same period. Net income for 2014 came in at $132, on $745 million in revenue. It is expected to see revenue at $1,4 billion in 2015 and $1,7 billion in 2016.

Fitbit is more like GoPro Inc. GoPro went public last year and the stock more than tripled in October last year. Fitbit has a lower valuation and trade at 21,6 times the past years reported earnings through March 31, compared with 82 times for GoPro, FactSet data show.

Some Fitbit customers has experienced an allergic reaction on their wrists, but others are obviously happy with the new product like the U.S President Barack Obama which is a user of this «hot new trend» right now.

The wearable devices can track daily steps calories burned and floors climbed, as well as sleep duration and quality. Fitbit have many different wearable devices and some of them can track your heart rate and collect information about distance, speed and exercise routes.

I have had my wearable device in 20 years, but now it has become mainstream. A hot trend. I will be very surprised if this products over goes the mobile trend. A mobile phone is a «must have», but a wearable device like Fitbit is a «funny-thing-to-have».

Fitbit will start trading Thursday morning on NYSE under the symbol «FIT».
