The Tobacco Industry Post the E-Cigarette Era
Now that there has been massive school infrastructure built, it’s about time that more attention has to be paid to the quality of the education being offered. The ability to read and write means a better chance to economic inclusion, a better chance to become a global citizen and if on average the quality improves, better decision making at all levels will be attained.

EVERY now and then I get a data set that I don’t know at first what to do with it but as soon as I start analyzing, it takes me to places that I had not imagined. Such as reading a book that you thought wasn’t interesting and two three pages in, you find yourself immersed in a plot that you forgot you are a reader but start to think that you are part of the plot. That is what happened with the data that informed the rest of this article.
Full disclosure; I do not smoke! The closest I came to smoking as a teen was when I was having a problem of my life, right after writing my last paper in grade 12, my world came crumbling. You know the teen stuff where you think everything is the end of the world. I felt as if I could not breath properly and for some reason, thought smoking would help me breath properly. I bought a cigarette. A consulate menthol, I believe! In those few minutes of that decision, between buying and lighting it, I paused! Something inside told me that if I smoked this one time, I would smoke every time I was stressed for the rest of my life. I threw the cigarette away. To this day, have a photographic memory of the cigarette landing in a pool of running water. E-Cigarette.
