The Joy of Stats by Hans Rosling: 4 minutes to show evolution of 200 countries over 200 years.

“I kid you not, statistics is now the sexiest subject on the planet” – Hans Rosling
In this spectacular section of ‘The Joy of Stats’ by BBC, using augmented reality animation, Rolsing tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers – in just four minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine.

    The video clip doesn’t seem to want to play when the I.P. address is in the U.S.: “not available in your area”.

    Everything posted was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome title?

    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website,
    however what if you added a title to maybe grab people’s attention?

    and note how they create article titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your blog
    a little livelier.

    The Gallardo is Lamborghini s entry-level car, if
    you need a faster car? The All-Wheel Drive AWD system wkth
    active torque control and a 4-speed automatic transmission gearbox.

    Most government seized car auctions allow the public,
    the advantage of warranty cover, low interest rate, roadside assistance and peace of mind.

    This facility assists the buyer to deliver the deposit cars for sale in ma credited into account, all sorts of trickery.

    not to worry cause pickemups zoomed big time.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which not enough folks
    are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for
    something relating to this.

    We all know by now, that when you make a habit of connecting with potential customers little and often, on topics that they care about, you increase the likelihood of them doing business with you.
    Founded in March 2010, Pinterest has become the fastest-growing social media site on the web, gaining 145% more users since January 2012 alone.
    For example, if your food business is dedicated to gourmet
    party appetizers your bio might be as simple as “Gourmet appetizers delivered right to your door.

    It’s hard to find well-informed people on this subject, but
    you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks
