The Emoji States of America

This visualization is a modified version of Chernoff Faces, a technique that maps multiple statistical values to the features of a face. Because it's 2017, we expanded on the technique and made Chernoff Emojis. Each part of the emoji is controlled by the state's ranking in a given metric, which range from the uninsured rate to the percent of adults who report getting enough sleep.

How much help will chemo be for our cat?

Our 15 year old cat has liver cancer - a diffuse carcinoma. We've just got the news from the vet and are trying to figure out the best course of action. Prior to this he's been hiding away, barely eating and drinking, not grooming and having trouble using the litter box. His mobility is now pretty poor. Chemo could extend his life, but should we?

You’ve always been the caretaker...

How the Overlook Film Festival turned itself into a living, breathing horror movie. The part of the Overlook there being played by Timerline Lodge, which was built during the depression by the WPA. Though the movie uses Timberline Lodge for exteriors the interiors are quite different, being filmed on a set inspired by the Ahwahnee Hotel. Other shooting locations include the maze (previously) and a partial replica of the extra of theTimberline which were both built in Hertfordshire, England.

Ride or die, remember?

How does Fate of the Furious stack up against the rest of the franchise? And now they've done one with a tank and one with a submarine and one that's in Japan but set 10 years after it was filmed and one where a man in his 30s is a teenager from that movie where can the franchise go next? Space, maybe. [contains spoilers, nitro, shots that zoom through the engine of a car in motion]

Diversity versus Hydra

Marvel’s recent Retailer Summit (2, 3) sparked controversy when Marvel’s flagging sales were blamed on an increase in diversity in they books, such as the recently Hugo nominated Ms Marvel. The actual sales numbers appear to tell a different story, with possible causes for their woes being event fatigue, a dip in the sales of X-Men books as Marvel fails to replace them with The Inhumans, and a lack of diversity amongst creators leading to mishandling of issues. A poorly timed storyline with Captain America becoming a Nazi and leading a Hydra takeover of the Marvel Universe (complete with a takeover of websites) may only be making matters worse. Meanwhile Ms. Marvel writer G Willow Wilson has her own take on diversity and the direction the market is going.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

Improve any novel by changing its second line to “And then the murders began”, a proposed addition to Elmore Leonard's rules for writers, though possibly more related to Raymond Chandler's (possibly not serious) "When in doubt have a man come through a door with a gun in his hand." - Some more rules of writing.

Spending time at Disneyland Vs Universal Studios

Our family of four is going to California in less than two weeks. Our mission is basically to see Disneyland and Harry Potter World/Universal Studios. We have 2 little girls, one in Kindergarten and the other a Fifth Grader. We have six days to spend between these parks. We are thinking about 4 days at Disney/California Adventure and 2 days at Universal/Harry Potter world. Does this seem like the right allocation of days in these parks?
