<p><span>According to SWIFT&rsquo;s latest RMB tracker, the United Kingdom&rsquo;s RMB payments value increased by 21% between March 2014 and March 2016, positioning the United Kingdom as the first offshore RMB clearing centre after Hong Kong. Singapore overtook the United Kingdom in February 2014, but the trend started to reverse as of January 2016. Hong Kong still remains the world&rsquo;s largest offshore RMB centre, processing 72.5% of all RM...

"This timely study looks behind the claims that are frequently made in support of the EU and finds a very different reality. Examining the research used by not only ministers but big business and many other pro-EU lobbyists to support their stance, Burrage finds that there is no empirical basis for the supposed advantages that the Single Market confers on the British economy. It is a devastating conclusion that should fundamentally shift the terms of the debate surrounding Britain’s relationship with the EU."

Captain America Civil War was awesome. Really, really well done. The pacing is a tad slow at first, but other than that, it's an excellent story with great acting by all the regulars and a fantastic plot. Tom Holland knocks it out of the park as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Marissa Tomei as the younger Aunt May is really good as well. The airport scene that everyone has been talking about is fantastic, with a surprise in it - which I won't ruin - but when you get a chance you should really go see the movie.

If you don't know who Claude Shannon is, you should, and you should read this long article about him.

Everyone talks about #gunviolence in the US, but here in London, we just got the mayoral candidate position statements, and all of them are planning to crack down on #knifeviolence.

To everyone that suddenly thinks the poll reflecting a 20% chance of #Brexit is accurate - have you stopped to think about where that came from and why?

Previously, polls were putting the #Leave campaign at either dead even or slightly ahead. Now, all of a sudden, the mainstream media (#MSM) runs with a 20% chance poll. Does this seem like an attempt at creating a self-fulfilling prophecy perchance?

It makes you want to think that the vast majority of people don't want to #LeaveEU. Yet, that's not the case - ask around.

They've trotted out Obama, whom Britons told basically to go quack his lame-duck somewhere else. Their latest trick is this poll. Think critically about where it came from and why, and ask your friends, relatives, and neighbours and I think you'll find that no matter how much they say that the poll is correct that it's likely not. Every person I speak to - admittedly not the broadest sample size, but I've started asking everyone I meet - wants to #LeaveEU.

It's funny to see American websites like io9.com talk about how they're excited to see Captain America Civil War when it's already been out for days here and it's been more than 24 hours since I"ve seen it.

When you go see Captain America Civil War - remember that there are two end-credit scenes, not just the one.

Obama is First President Ever to Not See Single Year of 3% GDP Growth

"According to Louis Woodhill, if the economy continues to perform below 2.67% GDP growth rate this year, President Barack Obama will leave office with the fourth worst economic record in US history.

Assuming 2.67% RGDP growth for 2016, Obama will leave office having produced an average of 1.55% growth. This would place his presidency fourth from the bottom of the list of 39, above only those of Herbert Hoover (-5.65%), Andrew Johnson (-0.70%) and Theodore Roosevelt (1.41%)"

Despite his proclamation that he "saved the world from a Great Depression," the fact is that Obama will be the first President ever to not see a single year of 3% GDP growth - but only cynical fiction-peddlers would mention facts at a time like this. In yet more legacy-defending narrative, Obama told The NYTimes today that his biggest failure was being unable to sell his success in putting the American economy back on track to the American people...

Dear everyone: Hillary Clinton is not a native New Yorker. She lives there now, yes, but she's a #carpetbagger. She moved from Arkansas - perhaps you may remember that Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas before becoming president.

The decision by Ms. Clinton’s team to appropriate a Prince song for a campaign rally is viewed by her critics as just another pandering ploy to garner support from voters. Her presidential campaign has been filled with publicity stunts that have backfired. In her latest move, Ms. Clinton is reaffirming the suspicion held by millions of American voters: She is willing to do and say anything to get elected—even if it means exploiting the recent death of a musical legend.

(I also posted this review to Trip Advisor.) This has to be one of the best kept secrets in Limassol. Slightly tucked away off the main road across from the Four Seasons hotel, this place looks unassuming from the outside. Blended in with the dozens of other local eateries, it quickly stands out once you start eating. My wife and I went in February, so we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The kitchen was staffed by an older gentleman (presumably the proprietor) and a younger man (presumably his son). The menu was the first evidence that this is a quality establishment - instead of a slapdash listing of food like many places on the island, it was a well-bound thick book with Greek and English, and pictures where appropriate. We had hummus with pita bread and garlic bread as appetizers. The garlic bread was crisp and delicious, and slightly burnt around the edges to maximise the flavour. The pita bread was the perfect warm temperature, and contrasted with the colder hummus quite nicely. The hummus itself had just the right amounts of olive oil and paprika, and held its own aside from the bread. My wife's fish soup was delicious, with the fish complemented highly with the choice of vegetables, in a well-rounded flavour profile that my wife thoroughly enjoyed. I had the dolames, which is shredded pork and rice wrapped in vine leaves and cooked in a hearty tomato sauce, which came with a plate of vegetables (salad-like, but more than salad) and potato wedges. It's tough to describe the flavour combinations that were evoked with the dolames, except to say that I don't know that I've ever had all the parts of my tongue working together like that before. There was a tzatziki sauce on the side that somehow made it even better (adding to the texture and muting the temperature just a bit in a good way) and it was simpy fantastic, insofar as words are inadequate to do the experience justice. On asking for the bill, we were given complimentary galaktoboureko, a sweet dessert which neither of us had room for until we actually tried the first bite. Suddenly, we found the room, and the plates were both empty in a couple of minutes. We both wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Moving to the UK from the States was far easier than it would have otherwise been without Foxtons. The ability to do everything online meant that other than seeing the property I could do everything without having to travel overseas (and this included documents & fees). Their service was helpful and friendly, and I recommend them highly!
