Oh dear ! I hope that when you are reading this you are not eating your breakfast or if you are standing up that you have something solid nearby to grab. I have just found out the earth-shattering news that the Financial Times newspaper has decided from now on to treat the word " data " as a singular noun ! I know this will shock those of you who are prone to wearing tunics and togas as you will know from your latin that " datum" is a singular noun and data are plural. However, life , and language with it , moves on. I do hope this information has not disturbed your day. My own personal view is that data is ( not are !! ) much easier to pronounce than statistics. ..... johnB

It is true that in an increasingly complex, connected environment, all systems tend to become more complex. The need to simplify goes hand in hand. Thanks for the good news Very Happy
