I should note that in Benin parboiling rice is a major economic activity and…Continue

If a picture is worth thousand words, then what about a neat data visualization?

There are now multiple tools to visualize…Continue

I first worked in the City in 1972 as a summer intern in the cheque processing arm of Lloyds Bank Ltd. No typing, just machine minding!
