Here's a disturbing look at the US. We talk a lot about income inequality in today's world but this has implications in living locations and wealth density. Are creating class segregation?
Troubling inequities are revealed when you look at the country by total property values.

nothing new here,  putting low and subsidized housing into affluent neighborhoods just creates crime lowers property values and increases suburban flight.  Housing is also relate to prefered climate, supply and demand in favorable areas, ease of transportation. compares to where the jobs are also see map of where the jobs are.

I'm no sure what to make of this. I ha r always used "Regards" "Thanks" or "Cheers" to close an email in a business setting. For memos like emails I close with "-Zach".

I just think people like to see that you realize that the communication form of email is one way. While most are connected and can pull new emails readily, not everyone is all the time so it functions less like chat than the article suggests. 
Why “best” is actually the worst

I usually sign with Thanks or Cheers, too. I've noticed that gmail tends to take off your signature, for some reason, so even if I write my name, it will sometimes disappear. It cracks me up. But I still treat emails like letters in most cases. Still more formal than texting.

Really interesting presentation of a weeks food from a bunch of different countries. While understanding there is a spectrum in each nation, it gives you pause on what you eat. Take a look...
 
And because this is always great share and good intro to nutrition and geography, here you go!

US Open 115 is in the books. Great Sunday drama even if there is going to be the commentary on the state of the greens. Some amazing golf played. #USOpen

Really interesting presentation but it ignores much of the gray in politics. While we might generally affiliate with one party, we really should look at issues and stop focusing on who's what.
 
This infographic and interactive visualization of Democratic vs. Republican occupations depicts the complex relationship between a person's occupation and their political beliefs. Data is based off FEC campaign contributions. 

Some interesting results:
* Restaurant owners are 4x more Republican than waitstaff
* Prosecutors are 17x more Republican than public defenders
* Pediatricians are overwhelmingly Democratic while urologists are overwhelmingly Republican

social statistics have numerous uses, divergence across the board is  always  there   every thing   has to be controlled for a true data cache.  any specifics  to occupations,class $ and goals, etc all have to fall in line. Then its all up to analysis,  like history, stored data is subject to manipulation and interpretation,  as all information is plastic .

Deck Ideas  - 
 
All need some help on EDH Deck options. Haven't been playing for that long and have more recent stuff to build home brew from. Have G/W built around Dromoka the Eternal and other G/W dragons. Using mana ramps to roll them out fast and build up smaller creatures via counters. This is not a token deck. I have all the G/W dragons from KOT and FR plus a couple older ones. The deck is solid but prone to removal, any thoughts to help control that? Specifically G/W instant counters?

Rootbound Defenses is a good instant-speed answer to board wipes, even if you don't use the populate mechanic.  Deathless angel and Avacyn can grant indestructible. Mother of Runes is also a good option for protection. There are other single-target options like totem auras, the cards Indestructibility and Gift of Immortality. Darksteel plate, Swiftoot boots, whispersilk cloak and lightning greaves are all staples of the format to provide removal protection. Spectra Ward is also decent.
