Philippines establishing multinational brands with the use of its diaspora?
Pretty cool
The Filipino restaurant chain Jollibee now has a location in Queens, New York. By targeting groups of emigrants abroad, emerging market companies like this one are building international brands.

Hello there data people.

I will graduate from a PhD in Physics in a few months. My work for my PhD involved using software to run atomistic simulations. This involved some coding and some exposure to parallel programming.

My question for you guys is:
Can I become a data scientist and, if so, how would I go about doing it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

From Michael Gove, the UK Secretary of Education:

"Q98 Chair: One is: if "good" requires pupil performance to exceed the national average, and if all schools must be good, how is this mathematically possible?
Michael Gove: By getting better all the time.
Q99 Chair: So it is possible, is it?
Michael Gove: It is possible to get better all the time.
Q100 Chair: Were you better at literacy than numeracy, Secretary of State?
Michael Gove: I cannot remember."

I'd like to point out that the vast majority of people in the Republic of Ireland don't say "aye".
