At 24 B.C. sailed to New York and established himself as a business and financial scribe for Hearst newspapers.

    In the rarefied world of high fashion it isn’t unusual for a gown or purse to become so sought-after that people will wait in line for it. So it must come as a shock to global fashionistas that the most coveted item in recent memory costs a mere $109 and comes from the rugged New England town of Freeport, Maine rather than an atelier in Paris or Milan.

    Nigeria is Africa’s largest economy; it has overtaken South Africa on FORBES’ 50 Richest in Africa ranking. Yet the majority of its people subsist on less than a dollar-twenty-five a day.

Staying up late teaching oneself how to code from YouTube videos was the opposite of cool. After all, Apple' iTunes App Store had just launched and celebrity-status billionaires like Instagram's Kevin Systrom and Snapchat's Evan Spiegel didn't yet exist.

    As anointments go, this one was big. Just minutes after Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella finished his keynote at his annual developer conference in late April, the leader of the world’s biggest software company handed the stage to a mild-mannered figure in a dark blazer and a T-shirt with his company’s whale logo on it.
