Based on estimates from the National Center for Education Statistics, Randy Olson plotted the percentage of bachelor degrees conferred to men in the United States, by major. Start your eyes at the 50% line and work your way up (more men) or down (more women).

There will always be people out there picking weird names for their kids, but when you look at the choices that make their way to the top you'll see that Americans tend to play it safe. The maps above, based on data from the Social Security Administration, show the most popular baby names for girls by state, for babies born from 1960 through 2012, with the colors representing the most popular single name for that year.

You may have seen this sign on gasoline pumps. When I see it I think of the conversations that could have gone into the design and how software companies approach similar situations.

I could imagine Apple saying "Just put the strip reader on the left side. Everyone will get used to doing it our way." Or "Companies should change the way they make credit cards."

Putting a reader on both sides seems more like Microsoft's approach, wanting to be all things to all people.

Google's approach might also be to put readers on both sides, but not to include an illustration. No need to tell people what to do when whatever they try to do will work. Google also add two more readers, one on each side of the bottom, in case people stuck in their card upside down.

This piano was located at the St Pancras station in London, this guy was a real prodigy, when I see his fingers I really couldn't count the hits on that piano. Even if most people don't pay attention to him, If I was there I would stay amazed for a whole long time at how he does that. Please SHARE with your friends and who ever loves piano music.

This group's tap dancing cover of "Cups" is a game changer.
