NordVPN and ExpressVPN works for me right now.
Edit: NordVPN has a 3 day trial where all you give is your email and you can use any server and you get normal speeds. Same as ExpressVPN for Mobile only you search up netflix with either vpn, they have a guide that will tell you which servers to use.
They do it on purpose though to force people to upgrade.
Edit: Thank you for the gold and the responses guys.
I just woke and I can't respond to everyone but I upgraded to a Samsung as well about 3 years ago. For the people debunking my statement, you may be right. I simply don't know however I do know that Apple is not fulfilling their customers needs by releasing software that may be less compatible with older hardware.
Just so you all know the easiest way to deal with this issue is not to update the software on your phone after the release of a new device. You can turn off 'Auto check for updates' on Samsung in the settings, not sure about Iphone. Here's some temporary solutions for Iphones.
As I've been cautioned. By all means if an update is security related please go ahead and do that in order to keep your data secure.

I created this using an app I programmed, you can downloaded it here for android if you want. Even though I also made the complete app for iOS, I don't want to invest 100$ as I can definetely see Apple rejecting this app. However, if I make enough profits from the android app, I will use them to buy an apple developer license.
Edit: I have released an update addressing some crashes you had, it should be rolled out in a few hours. I'm still not sure about releasing to iOS because the app probably doesn't comply.
Edit 2: Netflix has changed some things and the app doesn't work anymore. I'll try to fix this, but Netflix will probably just change it again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Edit 3: I have updated the app, it should work again for now. Netflix could change their API at any time and break the app again, so have fun while it still works!

I noticed when watching Episode 1 of Defenders, each main character's scene has its own unique color palette so I made this visualization by averaging out the color of every frame to show this.
The Logos depict each of the main characters in the show:
Dragon - Iron Fist
J - Jessica Jones
L - Luke Cage
D - Daredevil
A - Alexandra Reid
Edit: Here is a version with the scenes separated by character: https://i.imgur.com/8Ub0RYh.png
Yeah, but it's not really 'society' that considers this. The difference in age preferences between men and women is almost certainly largely genetic. Men prefer younger women in societies around the world, and women prefer older men in societies around the world. There's lots of research on this.
Recently, I felt like I was texting a new friend from work a lot, so I looked at my text history to compare. This shows every SMS I sent or received since October 2011 (earlier data, mainly light blue and orange, is missing). MMS are not included. Data was collected using SMS Backup & Restore and plotted with GNU Octave.
My top 8 contacts are shown individually; the remainder are lumped together as college friends, high school friends, and everything else. Data is smoothed with a truncated Gaussian kernel having a 5 day sigma.
Similarity to yesterday's post by /u/teddarific is coincidental.
Edit: Because it is not as clear as I intended: the second plot identifies each line with a gray label and colored marker. The events are the color of the person they correspond to. So "visited" in purple means someone from the purple line (college friends) visited me, and "wedding" in light blue means light blue got married.
I'm a developer an I've created an Android app to visually browse CIA World Factbook data.
World Factbook is a guide prepared by CIA for use by US Government officials, it has lots of interesting facts about economy, population, transport etc for all countries in the world.
The app sorts the countries by value of selected field and displays number value and bar chart where bar width is calculated as a percentage of the value for the topmost country.
Any feedback welcome!
Thanks very much for all the feedback! I really appreciate it!
Just published a new version to Play Store which should be available within a few hours with following fixes:
- Improvement to side menu display (drawer)
- Added country ranking in the List mode - http://imgur.com/z1QDogi

Yeah, I think Bernie Sanders is not that complicated to diagnose. It's mostly that he's further left than not just most Americans, but most Democrats. It's not a bad thing and I think we're hearing discussions that we wouldn't hear otherwise. You also have some issues about the Democratic Party being concerned about his electability. He hasn't done a good job so far of capturing the black and Hispanic vote so there are some issues like that too. If you had to summarize it with one concept: he's further left than the median voter is in the Democratic Party.
I'd probably say Daniel Kahneman Thinking, Fast and Slow, which isn't about stats per say but cognitive biases and how we misperceive the world.
Next year's finals I think it's not a year for sleeper teams really. The NBA is a sport where the cream does tend to rise. We have a whole new NBA projection system that we will be debuting soon. I will be able to give a better answer in a couple of months.
Edit: Apparently the cause for this phenomenon is the existence of a homonym of the word 'reddit,' which was used more classically, as the "third-person singular present active indicative" of the word reddo, which means "to give back, return" or to "return in profit." Seems pretty similar to the current use of 'Reddit'. To give [share ideas and observations] to the community for profit [sweet, sweet imaginary internet points].
I Googled the "Sleep Cycle" app. According to the "How it Works" page, you let the app run all night, and it performs signal analysis on the accelerometer to track your movement, (and on the microphone to track your breathing? I think?) and uses the signal to approximate how deeply you are sleeping, which you could call the "depth" of sleep.
Near as I can tell, sleep quality is defined a function of how similar your measured sleep depth graph is to an ideal sleep graph.
~~It kind of sucks, because it would really only work for single people living alone. If you sleep in a room with your partner, it couldn't gather this data.~~
EDIT: I guess it does work for couples sleeping together in bed.
These are all the alt coins released in the last month trying to catch the hype train. You missed your chance? Good luck trying to pick the next winner.
That being said, I bought a bit a year ago and have done alright.

I used an app called Gleeo Time Tracker to track everything I did in 2018. I haven't processed any of it yet, but I plan on doing something similar to this.
I agree with you that CSS is kinda poopy though.
Also this website is really well done, as others have said.
While you could certainly optimize them more, I'd argue that this type of graph just doesn't work that well with a big number of items that are full of spikes.
If you keep the number of entries low and only have slow gradual changes it works great, like these, but once it gets more complex, separate line charts might be more appropiate.
Other sources show drastically different percentages, so I'm a bit skeptical about these numbers.
Edit: Here's an article that takes a closer look at the different methodologies and the consequentially varying results:
Net Market Share vs. StatCounter: Whose online measurements can you trust?
Wow, very interesting chart. Most notably, the incredible irony that the 2003 Marlins, widely accused of buying the series, were actually the cheapest team to win since the early 90s, and by far the cheapest team to win relative to the higher salary teams the year they won.
Edit: Actually nope. My bad. The '97 team was the one that "bought it". The book I linked was about the 97 team. >.>
Those are striking visualizations and help understand the cities in which we live.
This segregation didn't happen by accident by the way. Richard Rothstein published 'The Color of Law' and it describes how local, state, and federal housing policy is responsible for most of the segregation we see today.
These segregationist zoning laws are still in force today and we are becoming even more segregated, although nowadays it is increasing more by class than race.
Assuming a population of India at 1.353 billion and a USA population of 326 million, then each on of those colors has more people than the entire population of the USA (338 million vs. 326 million).
In other words, if the USA has 4% of the world's population, the each of those colors also holds 4% of the world's population.
The website is just where it scrapes the data. I downloaded the android app he linked Here once the app is downloaded you log in to netflix through it and it sorts through the raw data you're seeing now.

That's exactly what cronometer.com does. You tell the app what you've eaten, and it will suggest foods to fill in your nutritional gaps. In my experience, it's recommendations are almost always freakin' beans of some sort.
I use similar app. I do it so I can better control my time. I like to know how much do I slack off at job, how much time did I spend scrolling through reddit, etc. I'm diagnosed workaholic and it allows me to not feel guilty about not working.
By request, I updated the "More Cows Than People?" map to show pigs instead. Interactive version here - find your county! Thanks for all the positive response yesterday.
Source: 2012 Agricultural Census (dataset for Iron Viz competition)
This is not a good data visualisation:
Using percentages for this data doesn't really make sense because it implies that everything the wife has said while playing is included in this data, which I assume is not true (I'm sure she didn't only say those quotes). What I mean to say is: 100% in this data doesn't really have a meaning. To make percentages meaningful you'd have to say "Distribution of my wife's strong language while playing COD"
Additionally it's quite hard to differentiate the data points in the pie chart due to the nature of the pie chart. The relatively similar colours don't improve this but rather worsen it. The labels help a bit, but are wrong as well. As somebody pointed out, their percentage adds up to 363.56% (yes, it has been explained why, but it's not really an excuse imo).
The data isn't ordered in any way. The pie chart just follows the random order of the list on the right in a clockwise direction, starting from the top.
Lastly, there is lots of wasted space all around the image, just making it unnecessarily large.
Here is a fixed visualisation. I extracted the data from your visualisation, ordered it by frequency, then put the data into https://plot.ly/ and made a simple bar graph.
Bandwidth doesn't seem to be the problem.

>I looked at a subscription to the Times and it was over $1000 a year.
As far as I can tell here's the basic price list. Ignoring introductory rates, you get their primary service levels:
basic: $3.75/week, which is roughly $195/year.
all access: $6.25/week, which is roughly $325/year.
home delivery (including digital and Sunday delivery): $9.40/week, which is roughly $488.80/year.
There are lots of introductory offers, besides the ones listed on that site, too. They send me emails like "give five complimentary 12-week digital subscriptions" (if anyone wants one of these, PM me your email and I'll figure out if they're still good). Those above prices seem to be on the high end, too. If you look around, you can find offers like this where you can get a year of digital subscription for $129.99 (new subscribers only).
I feel like I'm /r/hailcorporate for real now, I'm sure if you were interested you could also just call them up and find out what's the best deal for new subscribers. Personally, though, if I didn't already have a subscription, I'd consider subscribing to the Washington Post instead of the Times, since the Post seems to have better political reporting (though I tend to prefer the Times on most other issues).
As stated in comments above. The debt is technically rolled over into every year- so he didnt lose 1 billion 5 years in a row.
Another thing what its interesting, the world knows he lost a billion dollars. It came up in the 2016 election. Then came back to make higher profits than ever starting in 1995. He even says it in his old TV show... The Media even covered His 1997 book Trump: The Art of the Comeback.
But you know, he took risks as a business man- failed a little bit. Then profits came in. Anyone who invested in what he was doing during the slump is probably raveling in riches now.

I stayed in mostly the same place as this was recording, so the data should be easily mappable to the actual barometric pressure. It was approximately 70-80F in my room while the data was being measured, and we are about 265 meters high. With that, I determined the storm dropped to about 998 mbar where I was, which was confirmed by weather maps and a small weather station I have set up outside my house.
EDIT: According to a temperature monitor in my room, it went from 27C to 20C.

That book is such a good read. I couldn't get enough of it when I was reading through it.
Yep, use Torque Pro app and a suitable wireless OBD reader ($20 ish from Amazon) and enjoy massive amounts of data. Most modern cars drop accelerometer data through the OBD II port.

We know lots about it. A great book about this (that includes this project's research) is Living on the Wind. Scott is doing an update on this book, and just came out to talk to us again last summer. I'm really looking forward to it.
But the short answer is that hawks, vultures, and eagles are lazy (aka "efficient") fliers. They use thermals (rising currents of air) and updrafts to get free lift. This is what vultures are doing when circling overhead. Just getting free lift. Then they glide a mile or so until the next area of lift. They can fly long distances with almost no energy. This means they cluster around certain geographic features and avoid water. But places like Veracruz Mexico has huge concentrations of raptors. But you can usually find a nearby hawkwatch if you want to see hawks in the fall.
Costco is great, but check Amazon. We're in a similar position. 365 pills on Amazon is $15.99. Obviously Costco is awesome for other things but you might be able to save even more on the Zyrtec. Here is the one we buy for reference: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G9E1GYA/
Just by posting a response, you've become one of the 1%.
99% of users never comment IIRC.
Correction, for reddit, it's closer to 4% of people comment. Many online sites follow the 90:9:1 ratio, of 90% lurk, 10% will 'vote' and 1% contribute.
>reddit pretty solidly follows the 80/20 rule. About 20% of the users vote, and about 20% of those actually comment. At least, that was the trend for the first 5 years or so. I don't have access to the data to tell you what it is today, but based on what I do know I suspect it is the same.
Yes, there are a lot of sets that are all the books in one volume. Such as this one:
Maps.me is quite good, imo.
Sure, some features are missing compared to Google maps, but they often have small data that you just won't find on Google Maps,e.g. bins, benches, public toilets,...
I know you are making a joke, but that is exactly what the author should do next. Not only is it the original, Three's creators actually focused on making the game hard to beat with an algorithm:
> But why is Threes better? It’s better for us, for our goals. 2048 is a broken game. Something we noticed about this kind of system early on (that you'll see hidden in the emails below). We wanted players to be able to play Threes over many months, if not years. We both beat 2048 on our first tries. We’d wager most people that have been able to score a 768 or even a 384 in Threes would be able to do the same using the fabled “corner strategy”. You probably could too! Just try tapping “up” then “right” in alternating order until you can’t move. Then press left. You may not get to a 2048, but you might just see your highest score ever.
> When an automated script that alternates pressing up and right and left every hundreth time can beat the game, then well, that's broken. Is Threes a better game? We think so. To this day, only about 6 people in the world have ever seen a 6144 and nobody in the world has yet to “beat” Threes. But that’s what’s better to us as game designers. We worked really hard to create a simple game system with interesting complexity that you can play forever. You know, “simple to learn, impossible to master”. That old chess-nut…
I've seen MS Word used, and it freaks me out every time. LaTeX is the most common sane way to do it, and I try to encourage every undergrad I know to get started on it earlier rather than later. AIAA actually has its own LaTeX template that you have to use when writing any papers you intend to submit to any one of their conferences or publications. I think other disciplinary organizations probably have theirs too.
Recently though, ~~Markup~~ Markdown is gaining a lot of traction because there are some document processors out there right now that combine its simplicity with inline LaTeX for mathematics. It allows people to write the actual body of their papers/thesis without getting bogged down in LaTeX's verbose syntax, while simultaneously taking advantage of its strength in parsing equations. YMMV of course, but this is my personal observation at least in my particular subdiscipline of Aerospace Engineering.
I've given it a try myself and I have to admit, it's growing on me. I'm particularly partial to Pandoc.

It's an exit node for IPredator as far as I can tell, so an exit node for a VPN provider, which makes sense considering the state of law enforcment in Libera and the idea behind a good VPN. So I guess they offer a tor exit node aswell as VPN servers for their users.

This might as well say "The archaic word 'ftick' seems to have fallen out of use Since 1820." It's not like people in Georgian times were busily writing the scripts for modern crime dramas.
Queen side is more situational and usually done a little later in game (more pieces to develop). Also more aggressive.

All three posts in this series are part of my work on an entry for Tableau's Iron Viz competition. There are a lot of talented folks from around the world who will enter, so my chances aren't great, but it'll be fun to try!
I wanted to thank everyone on here for responding so well to the first couple maps I shared. Your questions, comments, and critiques have helped me find the stories in the data. The final project will be better because of all of you!
Also, the highest raw number of meat chickens sold was Sussex County, DE, but the highest ratio of meat chickens sold to people is in Hickman County, KY.

I agree with you. If you navigate through the graph you will see the sharp drop happened around February 2011. There was big change in search algorithm wired article and the update history . There may be some causation.
As someone who has studied dynamical systems for years, I'm pleased to see so many redditors getting interested in them through the double pendulum system. If you're a student and want to learn more, take a course in dynamical systems. If you're not a student, consider reading this book, which is my favorite math book of all time, and I'm far from alone in that sentiment.
The double x-axes made immediate sense to me, but clearly there are many here that are struggling with reading it.
I think you offer a decent alternative, the difference of which boils down to the best way to show percentage:
A) Stacked bar chart (displayed horizontally, as used by OP)
PROS: Minor differences in percentage are easily noticed. Can show more than 2 groups.
CONS: Majority not as immediately identifiable as with a colormap.
PROS: Majority group is easily identifiable by color
CONS: Can only show 2 groups.
I personally prefer the approach taken by OP--it's a novel way of combining two datasets with minimal visual conflict.
That said, we could take your approach and do the following: age as the y-axis and instead of bars for each injury category, a box plot could be used to show the actual age distribution... and then each box could be colormapped by gender. Has anyone seen colored boxplots before? I haven't, but it seems like it could be useful?
I was just thinking about a single colored box plot colormapped to gender (e.g. pink-white-blue) like this plotly example...
But maybe a violin plot would be even better (seaborn example) since you could show both male and female distributions separately. This would be really neat given enough data and if the distributions weren't very normal (e.g. skewed, odd shaped, etc).
This is pretty standard terminology for marketshare. "Apple takes smartphone market share from Android thanks to strong iPhone sales"  and similar. The idea is that the marketshare was one place, and another company was able to grab it. Maybe through a better product, maybe through cheaper pricing, maybe through a big ad campaign, maybe through mismanagement at the first company, maybe through changes in trends and styles, lots of possible reasons. Whether they "earned" it or not in some moral sense isn't usually particularly decidable or relevant.

>In a non-warming world the distribution of temperature records would be evenly spread over the last 150 year.
This is not true for a few reasons.
Temporal distributions of records can give us some information but they must be interpreted cautiously.

Hey, just so you're aware, most plans have a set of preventative care measures that should be free for you, such as an annual checkup and many vaccines. You should call your insurance provider and see if your plan provides those services. They are the kind of thing that saves insurance companies money overall, so they're generally willing to provide them at no cost these days.

I recommend "Total Money Makeover" by Dave Ramsey. Some of the numbers he throws around ("You'll have a million dollars by the time you're 40 at this rate!") are not accurate anymore (and may not have ever been?) but the principles he presents in the book are completely sound and are exactly what /r/personalfinance is based on.

I was simply curious how price changes with length. Price is the same no matter what skin tone. There really is very little price break so I suppose folks should just go with what works for them.
The best price per inch is $3.88 (lowest) vs. $4.31 (highest). I should add data labels to call that out better.

I normally wake up somewhere between 6 and 7. I try to immediately spend an hour writing - in an ideal world I do that before I check twitter and email, but that doesn't always happen. Depending on whether I'm currently involved in more writing or programming heavy projects, I spend the next few hours programming or writing. I go to yoga at 12-1, and then eat lunch. I spend the rest of the afternoon (until 6) doing more writing/programming.
On Fridays, I make a significant effort to get to inbox zero, and to handle my other responsibilities (reviewing papers, misc pull requests etc). I try to ignore email as much as possible during the rest of the week. I also try and schedule random meetings on Friday as much as possible.
I avoid working on the weekends/
I believe it is percentage of occurrences of that ngram across all ngrams for that year. So if you have a single word like "reddit" it is the percentage of occurrences of the unigram (in this case, word) "reddit" across all unigrams that occurred each year. If you searched for the phrase "to be or not" it would be looking at all combinations of four consecutive words (4gram) across all english language books and giving you the percentage that are the phrase "to be or not".
This is why the word "the" is at 6%. Basically 6% of all words in english language books are usually the word "the".
I agree the screen capture isn't particularly beautiful visualization, but the interactive visualization on the Google site I'd say is pretty good at doing exactly what you want a visualization to do.
Hmm. I studied Human-Computer Interaction as an undergrad, and Don Norman’s book The Design of Everyday Things greatly resonated with me. Once you start thinking about design it becomes impossible to stop, and often greatly frustrating to see so many examples of bad design out in the world. (Design is similar to kerning in this regard.) Tufte’s books were also a huge influence for me. I suspect that the undergraduate (and later graduate) courses were probably the strongest force pushing me to think critically about design, so finding a course you can audit would probably be the best—a little secret about academia is that professors often don’t mind you sitting in on lectures, provided you ask first. A reading list from an introductory HCI course would also be a good place to start.
Now look at this:
I am a 22 years old French Economics student. I recorded what I did in 2018 during 91% of the time.
I recorded data with the Android app Hours (except for sleep which was recorded with Sleep as Android).
Categories are inspired by the American Time Use Survey.
I used Python and Matplotlib for the visualization.
I was abroad from 16th of July to 18th of August with 9 hours of jet lag.
I just picked up my copy of "The Boy Crisis" which just came out.
Pro-tip from someone who spent a few years living in Austin TX: soy-rizo + eggs + el yucateco. Maybe throw in a corn tortilla if you don't care so much about the x-axis.
Super easy. Super healthy. Super delicious. You're welcome.

It's certainly often used for the wrong things, but it works well if your data only contains a few types and change happens gradually without any spikes, like these.
Hey man, on the off chance you don't know about it, I'll just drop this here. It's super helpful. You can also paste in your regex and it will really help break down why it's not working.
Going to plug Kurzegesagt & Wait But Why with their "Universe in a Nutshell" app here.
Super fun being able to zoom in and out on a scale like shown here.
Most of what I know about the situation in North Korea post WWII came from recently reading
A River in Darkness: One Man's Escape from North Korea
Depressing right to the end, but an interesting read.
Here's how we got the data: https://thenextweb.com/tech/2019/06/11/most-popular-social-media-networks-year-animated/ (tl;dr - annual / quarterly reports of the networks themselves)
We used flourish.studio for the animation
They are technically mouse movements. Actually the lack of mouse movement. From the website:
> Whilst lines obviously represent the mouse movement, dots and circles around them represent the amount of time the mouse was not moving. The longer the mouse is not touched, the more the dots and circles diameter. The main reason for having them on canvas is to enhance the expression.
I actually first read about this in Gorky Park, years later realized it was exactly the same here. Even asked a homicide cop if the description was accurate and he just laughed.
I was curious as to what the relevant word counts of the Mueller Report was... to be able to correlate the words "Trump" and "Russia". I ended up writing a program in python, which takes a PDF file and runs a word analysis on the input PDF file. I then take the JSON output, gather the relevant data, and convert it to CSV. I used plotly to create this chart shown above.
The data can be found here
The python script can be found here
I tried but I couldn't find any free, accurate sources with Cracker Barrels by state :( It's available here for $65.... https://www.scrapehero.com/location-reports/Cracker%20Barrel-USA/
Seconding seaborn; I used to hate plotting in Python, now I prefer it over R for density analysis.
Plotly has also been gaining steam lately on the interactive front, I like it a little better than bokeh, but it doesn't have as much functionality yet.
I'm getting pretty sick of all these posts in dataisbeautiful that are poorly labelled, overly complicated, and/or in a hard to read format.
I propose a new rule that before anyone can submit to /r/dataisbeautiful they have to upload verification that they at least own/borrowed a copy of Tufte's "The Visual Display of Quantitative Information". Of course, we can only hope that means they've opened it.
I mean props to the creator(s) of gource here. It's a very cool visualization tool. You essentially just send your repo through gource, right? Thanks for linking to https://gource.io/, which is where credit is due.
IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS, there's an awesome and free app called aTimeLogger for Android and iOS that lets you track your life very easily. My dad has been using it for a while, and I picked it up two months ago. It's been really cool, and puts in perspective how much time you waste on random shit.
Protips: Take the time to really think out how your day goes, and add in an "Uncategorized" category, for misc stuff. At the end of each day/week, review what happened that day. Also, set the app to annoy you every 5 minutes you're not recording an activity, because you WILL forget, even after a while of using it.
Happy logging, data lovers! <3
Note: I am not affiliated with the app makers, I just love it a lot.
>Back in the 1800s when this game was played, the level of play was much lower than today.
That is a good reason why sacrifices would have been taken without much thought, but it is different from:
>it was considered ungentlemanly to turn down a material sacrifice
Players may have been bad back then, and the game may not have been taken as seriously... but they were not idiots. If you played chess frequently, and really wanted to win a match, you would approach what would appear to be an unwise sacrifice with some caution. That's not chess theory, that's common strategical sense. The Art of War was written 2 thousand years earlier and covers that idea in great detail. But that sort of thinking would not just apply to war and chess, it would be relevant in every day life. If someone appears to be offering you a trade that is obviously heavily in your favor (and you are an intelligent person), you would certainly give the trade a second thought. And if you are trying to win a game (with high stakes), you would not be overly concerned with being gentlemanly. Though you might get caught off guard.
However, I think the examples you gave are likely still accurate. People back then would have been worse at chess. They could not dedicate large portions of their life to it. There were not tomes upon tomes written on chess strategy. I would not be surprised to see in the records that valuable were rarely sacrificed as part of an intricate trap. Not to mention a game like this where numerous valuable pieces were sacrificed over many turns. But... I do not buy the idea that people back then were just not sophisticated enough to suspect that such sacrifices might be leading them into a trap. Even if the turns were all played quickly, his opponent certainly suspected that something was wrong. He clearly just did not look enough moves forward to see the inevitable outcome.
The highest in California is actually 130°. The 134° is regarded as an error by meteorologists. Here's an interesting read on it.
Not much. There are some cool infographics in this article. There's a website called Give that enables you to give directly to any artist. The founders did an AMA last week.
Saved this one for thursday just in case it was too political. I wanted to see how much each state pays in taxes. Most data is on a per return basis. But other data that can be seen (by changing the pull down menu at the top) is:
Data and Tools:
Left monitor is editing/web browsing and right monitor is for movies etc.
It's amazing to see just how many mouse strokes a wrist does in just a couple of days. I'd be interested to see if all mouse movement could be recorded and converted to a number of feet moved within a period of time. I bet it's a staggering number
Tool used is IOGraphica, Data source is my desktop.
I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but I'll leave a physicist reply, as I may be missing a detail.
But that's the kind of question that universe sandbox is probably perfect for answering. http://universesandbox.com
Careful though! I managed to accidentally turn Earth into a sea of lava whilst experimenting with adding different moons to the orbit to see how it would look. The guilt was traumatising!
Trained athlete's BPM is not even below 40, so 35 is really low for an average person Also, if you're having light headedness or any other issues when your heart rate isn't even breaking 100 then you should probably see your PCP or a cardiologist.
If I understand it correctly they're the same data and just made to look cool(er). Notice that for every black dot there's a circle surrounding it, even the very big ones.
> Gary Numan
Yeah, WTF, Gary Numan has had a collection of artists make a cover / tribute album some of which were minor hits in their own right.
In the context of the cart, "one hit" seems to indicate pop chart success only though.
EDIT: I live in Detroit and Gary Numan was pretty big here in the mid 90s. My dad used to play his albums a lot in the 80s.
>One hit wonders in the US.
Not really, the Verve Pipe's first album was big in the Michigan college scene - way before "Freshman".
I think connections and initial capital are discounted by the rich because most millionaires (over 80% last I read) are first generation, meaning they came from nothing and thus had no big connections or start up capital. The majority of them are also business owners which explains the emphasis on entrepreneurial spirit and hard work. Having connections would be a huge advantage but are not something most current millionaires had starting out. Thomas Stanley's "The Millionaire Next Door" does a pretty good job presenting the demographics of millionaires.
After reviewing 60 years of clinical research, they found that when taken after a cold starts, vitamin C supplements do not make a cold shorter or less severe.
You don't need to do any coding. Go to www.plot.ly and create a new plot - you literally drop the data into a table and say create a scatterplot.
Here's an example
> “well you could use a web-based proxy, connect to a proxy server or VPS, and then use a VPN service like Private Internet Access to TOR into another service and then VPN into another ISP. Then, setup an Amazon cloud server with a prepaid credit card that you purchased with cash. Secure Shell (SSH) to the cloud server, and tunnel all traffic from your computer through the Amazon VPN."
Jesus Christ, just imagine the latency on that thing.
