The prevalence of smoking and other major cancer risk factors varies widely by state. So does the uptake for preventive screening tests.

This is a really good article on the importance of privacy, and how changing privacy in law enforcement will change the relationships of people with police.

This is really neat -- and with network study you can find things like shortest-path, betweenness-centrality, etc. to find other metrics of importance.
 
How would you rank “important” languages? Many people start with English, but after that are reluctant to go further. What is it that makes a language “important”? One recent approach looked at how languages were connected to one another, rather than viewing them in isolation. The results are striking in many ways http://econ.st/1EU2WSs

On the cusp of full-blown March Madness, I took a look at the recruiting footprints of each of the top 25 men's college basketball teams (at the end of the regular season) and worked out their Air Mile Index, as is my way. If...

Good share; I think our football air mile index would be much higher. I suspect our football recruitment has far greater geographical reach than our basketball program. We are but a mere Northeast powerhouse in basketball!

This is a neat article about old-school privacy networks (physical mail) -- thanks to +Bruce Schneier for posting this on your blog!

The frustrating thing about wanting privacy is that you are automatically deemed suspicious for wanting it.  I'm sure the FBI/NSA are very interested in the number of people running Tor, even if they can't read the content passing through.
When faced with intense government surveillance and censorship, these people got incredibly creative to stay in touch with loved ones.

I've taken it before- it was amazing to spend the better part of a day airborne. HK is a beautiful city. A perfect touch down for a few days before a trip to somewhere else in Asia

This is a fascinating article and somewhat inspiring -- I had no idea what an interesting president Eisenhower was.

Yeah, "Ike" was a pretty great president and was pretty much well liked all around. During his farewell address he warned of the dangerous of the growing military industrial complex. We would have done well to listen to him.

I learned a lot about him and his relationship with other presidents in a fascinating book called "The President's Club"
