HAMILTON, ON, March 13, 2014 /CNW/ - A physician world-renowned for his ability to make data sing and trends come to life has received the 2014 Chanchlani Global Health Research Award at McMaster University.
Dr. Hans Rosling of Sweden is listed by Time magazine as one of the world's most influential people for his skill at presenting the issues of global socio-economic development. He is also a professor of international health of the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden and co-founder and chairman of the Gapminder Foundation, a non-profit venture promoting sustainable global development.
The Chanchlani Global Health Research Award was created by philanthropists Vasu and Jaya Chanchlani and McMaster University in 2012 to recognize a leading scholar in international health.
"Dr. Rosling conveys his forceful global health research message by converting dots into meaningful narrative bridging the gap of the last mile - reaching the comprehension of the average person," said Vasu Chanchlani.
Dr. John Kelton, dean and vice-president of McMaster's Faculty of Health Sciences said: "Dr. Rosling is uniquely able to reach everyone in explaining what's happening in global development using evidence-based information. This ability to communicate simply makes a real difference in our understanding of these important issues."
Examples of Rosling's lectures are available at www.gapminder.org

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.
