Amazing illustration of modern-day segregation in Chicago. Austin isn't nearly as segregated, though I-35 seems to separate whites from others: http://www.flickr.com/photos/walkingsf/5560474714/ (this Flickr stream has maps for a bunch of US cities).

Who knew blood pressure varied seasonally? And why don't we seasonally vary the normal range to account for this (we've only had 30 years since this paper came out)? Anyway, it perfectly explains some of the funky seasonality that was going on in my health care quality data (but not the funky seasonality that seems to have been caused by pay-for-performance, which is good for my dissertation).

"In our academic bracket, winners are determined based on each team's multiyear Academic Progress Rate, which the NCAA uses to measure classroom performance. In the event of a tie, we turn to the NCAA's Graduation Success Rate, which measures the proportion of athletes who graduate within six years."
