Just released our first ever ranking of timeshare resorts based on actual resales. Most other rankings out there are based on rental demand, certainly a valid measure of accommodations, but actual resale values are a better metric to guide pricing, selling and buying decisions pertaining to real estate ownership of timeshare on the secondary market. Disney, Marriott and Hilton are the top ranked brands in the Top 25.

NB: These techniques are universal, but for syntax we chose Postgres. Thanks to the inimitable pgAdminIII for the Explain graphics. So Useful, Yet So Slow. Count distinct is the bane of SQL analysts, so it was an obvious choice for our first blog post. First things first: If you have a huge ...

"So, there you have it, the pipeline for a robot journalist: (1) ingest data, (2) compute newsworthy aspects of the data, (3) identify relevant angles and prioritize them, (4) link angles to story points, and (5) generate the output text."

Code that writes content in a limited sphere - corporate earnings reports. Pretty easy to standardize I would imagine based on fill in the blank templates triggered by keywords in the releases (sales/revenue/earnings/EBITDA  increased/decreased etc.) but a drone of a chore for a journalist to slog through after writing a few hundred ;)
The Associated Press announced in an advisory to customers today that the majority of U.S. corporate earnings stories for our business news report will eventually be produced using automation techn...

Consider four examples:
A financial journalist cites changes in price-to-earning ratios in stocks over time during a radio appearance.
A sports journalist adds a table that illustrates the on-base percentages of this year’s star rookie baseball players.
A technology journalist creates a graph comparing how many units of competing smartphones have been sold in the last business quarter.
A team of news developers builds an interactive website that helps parents find nearby playgrounds that are accessible to all children and adds data about it to a public data set.

In each case, journalists working with data must be conscious about its source, the context for its creation, and its relationship to the stories they’re telling. 

“Data journalism is the practice of finding stories in numbers and using numbers to tell stories,” said Meredith Broussard, an assistant professor of journalism at Temple University.

SoftRock

Pleasantly surprised. We arrived on the mountain in late afternoon, checked into our condo and headed out for some supplies and a meal. Only a few restaurants were open and this was one. We had the house wine, a chianti, which was better than I expected, pizza - 2 huge slices - a greek salad with chicken and french fries. The pizza was delicious, the huge salad was excellent and the french fries were hot and crunchy. We'll be back to try other items. Service was prompt and friendly. The decor is a cross between a mountain lodge, a hunting lodge and a sports bar. Couple of deer and a huge moose head on the wall add to the ambiance though perhaps not for the faint hearted animal lover ;). Full bar, limited but good wine selection. This is one of several restaurants on the mountain under the same ownership. It is located at "top of the mountain" - a lodge with 20 or so rooms.
