This is kind of bizarre -- the number of truck drivers and others in the transportation industry is MUCH higher than I would have expected.  I suppose this is an effect of globalization and the advent of Amazon and other internet commerce companies.

What's with the number of primary school teachers?  Some of the states in the 2014 map were surprising.  Florida?  I would have thought health care worker would have topped the list.
The jobs picture has changed profoundly since the 1970s. This map shows how those changes played out across the country.

Abstract: In modern societies, cultural change seems ceaseless. The flux of fashion is especially obvious for popular music. While much has been written about the origin and evolution of pop, most claims about its history are anecdotal rather than scientific in nature.

Finally, someone has continued the analysis from my favorite 2 food network papers and synthesized them into a new paper analyzing Indian food!

Here were the other papers that I've posted links to in the past:

#socialnetworkanalysis   #sna   #networks   #graphtheory   #food   #datascience  
Abstract: Culinary practices are influenced by climate, culture, history and geography. Molecular composition of recipes in a cuisine reveals patterns in food preferences. Indian cuisine encompasses a number of diverse sub-cuisines separated by geographies, climates and cultures.

Interesting data, but it's not clear to me how self-reported stats from a sample size of 147 men and 147 women is going to be very accurate or representative.  I think the NYTimes was mostly going for shock value showing that more time was spent watching TV than searching for a job.  Although maybe it demonstrates the depression of the jobless :-/

These are also interesting data:

This one line captures almost all of modern American politics:

" Republicans think government is a bumbling tool at home but a magnificent instrument abroad. Democrats think government is a magnificent instrument at home but a bumbling tool abroad."

Today's column by David Brooks is a particularly well written and interesting look at the differences between religion and "secular religion".  I really like his points.

This is by far my favorite place in Chinatown -- truly authentic Sichuan. Great food, comfortable atmosphere, pleasant waitstaff, inexpensive. Order the crunchy garlic shrimp with noodles! Also, Double Li's is flexible and fun -- when my brother came back to the states after 6 months in China he was able to practice his Mandarin and order an item off the menu!
