Interesting facts about Longevity in the USA.  Would be very interested to see if there is any similar data to compare in other parts of the world.  I'd assume this is strictly an American phenomenon.
Money may not buy love, but it appears to buy years.Economist Barry Bosworth at the Brookings Institution crunched the numbers and found that the richer you are, the longer you’ll live. And it’s a gap that is widening, particularly among women.

If you are upset you don't receive CBS, or really don't want to pay for MTV when you only want to watch Comedy Central... urge your Senators to support the "Television Consumer Freedom Act of 2013".   Let's fix some legislation from 1934 and give some power back to the consumers.

The final electoral vote count was 332 Votes for Obama and 206 Votes for Romney.  One would think it would be a landslide, but the popular vote tells a different story with 51% for Obama and 48% for Romney.  The DNC harnessed the power of Big Data Analytics throughout the election to target voters, determine ad spend, and to create targeted call lists to insure victory.  The years of silence and secrecy are now be broken and this is a great chance to hear directly from Chris Wegrzyn, Director of Data Architecture, Democratic National Committee (DNC) the tools and methodologies used in the Presidential 2012 campaign that will change how all Political Campaigns are run in the future.

IDC says the amount of digital information being created, copied and shared annually will have huge economical, social and technology implications.

The amount of data in the world today is equal to:

·         Every person in the US tweeting three tweets per minute for 26,976 years

·         Every person in the world having more than 215m high-resolution MRI scans a day

·         More than 200bn HD movies – which would take a person 47m years to watch

·         Fill 57.5bn 32GB iPads

If I'm blessed with children someday they will be at a school that codes and has a music program.

A great use of predictive analytics. Kayak.com is getting better each day.
