Another diversion... Statistics is fun!

The next diversion is another great talk by Hans Rosling is a public health expert, director of Sweden's world-renowned Karolinska Institute, and founder of Gapminder, a non-profit that brings vital global data to life. With the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, he debunks a few myths about the "developing" world.

I was fascinated by how countries that placed health as a priority propelled the nation further in fiance and development. This reminds me of a quote I once read... He who has health has everything. Now I have the data to back it up!

Enjoy :)
