you are born in determine your success at the Olympic games?"
My story starts with being made redundant in 2007. When you
are in your thirties, redundancy can be seen as a chance to make a fresh start
in your career, but for someone like me in my late fifties it seemed more like
the end of the road.
Fate has strange ways of working, however. In an IT
reshuffle, the company decided they no longer needed a Data Architect and it was
goodbye to me.
What was I to do?
I had recently been trained in a product
called Qlikview which I believed was going to take over the Business
Intelligence area in the same way as Oracle did for databases or Microsoft did
for operating systems. The problem was that it had not happened yet because not
enough people knew about it.
However, the Olympics was coming up and I thought if I
wrote an application which answered anyone’s question about Olympic medallists
just by clicking on the appropriate fields on the screen, then that would

Scientists are known to the general public by their
personalities. Ask someone to name two famous scientists and Einstein and Darwin
could well be mentioned more than most. Actually, though, these two great men

findings relating Zodiac signs
For it produces conclusive findings relating Zodiac sun
signs – the ones that we all know from the horoscopes in our national newspapers
– to specific Olympic sports.
And by conclusive, I really mean conclusive. More so even
than previous research like that done by Michel Gauquelin, who coined the term
“the Mars effect”. I am talking of odds against chance of hundreds of thousands
to one. And just for the record, I know a thing or two about statistics. I have
a Ph.D. from Glasgow University on statistical ecology and a further 33 years
working on statistical data analysis.
I have organised this guide into 16
chapters which take you through the conclusive results that
I have discovered relating to the winners of Olympic medals
and their star signs.
