Click for Coins

26 Jun 2016 by Kavitha Srinivasa

Mintage World, a dedicated online museum on India's vast collection of coins (numismatics), stamps (philately) and paper currency (notaphily) was officially launched earlier in the year. Then earlier in the week I received a press release stating that Mintage World has launched a docudrama on the history of Yoga and various stamps and coins that have been launched around it on the eve of the International Yoga Day. It has been launched on their website as well as in the Youtube channel. The docudrama is a journey back in time, narrating the history of yoga and the implementation of International Yoga Day on June 21. Talk of co-incidences, the Philately Bureau of the Department of Post also celebrates its Platinum Jubilee on June 21.

Poor should ask the City: pay us if you want to stay in EU

25 Jun 2016 by Pelle Neroth

The French are pleased. Or rather there is a sense of schadenfreude in Paris, symbolised by the front page photograph in the newspaper Liberation: Boris Johnson, dangling haplessly from a flywire, kitted out in helmet and straps, forlornly waving two union jacks. He looks rather absurd in his precarious solitude and that, of course, is why the newspaper chose it.

Sorry, I have no answers either...

25 Jun 2016 by Paul Dempsey

The signature British response to a crisis is (1) sleep on it, (2) make a cup of tea, (3) roll up those sleeves and 'get it sorted'. But that isn't going to work this time, is it? After the referendum's 'Leave' victory, there has been plenty of talk about bringing the nation together but, admittedly viewed from a distance, the task seems insurmountable.

Baked-in irrationality

24 Jun 2016 by Chris Edwards

The gyrations of the currency and stock markets this morning in the wake of a vote for Brexit illustrate the issues of bringing increased automation into finance. In principle, the ability to incorporate many different inputs should make the decisions more rational and less prone to bubbles and busts. The reality is likely to be very different.

What career would Frankenstein choose today?

14 Jun 2016 by Dickon Ross

Mary Shelley started writing her classic novel Frankenstein 200 years ago. It is first and foremost a gothic masterpiece, but its plot has elements of science fiction too.

Eccentric engineer

Stand Aside Bill Gates

9 Jun 2016 by Justin Pollard

Having a wonderful idea and making any money out of it can be two very different things, as many an engineer can be heard muttering. Almost by definition, creating something revolutionary means there's not yet a ready market for it and most people won't understand it. A lesser engineer might give up, but Al Gross just kept engineering the modern world, whether he got properly paid and whether we liked it or not.

#Brexit – the rocky road ahead – an annotated infographic

28 Jun 2016

Amid the confusion between Britain and the European Union over what happens next following the UK referendum vote to leave the EU, Prime Minister David Cameron will likely be replaced by Boris Johnson, former London mayor, who campaigned for a Leave vote. It’s also possible that there will be early elections, won on a pro-EU […]
