A number theory look at the New Year:
— 2014=2x19x53 (a deficient number)
— 2015=5x13x31 (a deficient number)
— 2016=25x32x7 (an abundant num…ber) Note: the sum of the proper divisors is 4536.
— 2017 (a prime number)
Numerologists would probably say there are some historical predictions to be made of this.
1. 2016 = 211 – 25
2. In base 2, 2016 is 111111000002
3. 2016 is the 63rd triangular number (2016=63×64/2)

No I am an engineer, and I am proud to be one who have not been accused of being corrupted in the field of building construction since I have practiced it until now. No, I do not know anything about my future let alone yours 🙂
