Consider this some Wonkblog news you can use, at least if you're an aspiring congressional staffer: a short little tutorial on how to tie a bowtie.

Squeal! The first 538 polling forecast of the season!
Three weeks before the Iowa caucuses, the polling data looks good for Newt Gingrich.

So for a while there we were concerned with climate change; while the economy obviously takes immediate precedence, we should try and remember there are economic consequences to climate as well.

The more transparency we have about expected outcomes, the better decision making framework students will have.

You don’t often hear the term start-up and government agency in the same sentence. But, being a new, 21st-century agency we think of ourselves as just that: a startup agency seeking new ways to improve government engagement with the millions of consumers we are tasked with helping. We also understand the success of a start-up begins with a talented staff. The CFPB Design+Technology Fellowship looks to develop that talent through a unique opportunity for developers and designers. Join us, and you will be given an opportunity to help create a dream technology environment for a new organization.
If you're a talented developer or designer, you're getting a lot of offers. But you need a serious challenge. And we're pretty sure you won't find anything as serious as this. We know what you're thin...

An interesting look at who consumes fast food.
A new study in the academic journal Population Health Management finds that it’s middle to upper income Americans who eat the most fast food, rather than low income populations. A household earning $60,000 tends to eat the most fast food. And one earning $80,000 is actually more likely to hit the drive thru than one earning $30,000: The best predictor of how much fast food an individual eats? Researchers DaeHawn Kim and J. Paul Leigh finds it’s ...

I DO things; I am the string between the plastic cups of governance.
Introduction
Like there's another Dave Uejio out there? 

What modest notoriety I've gained generally comes from my favorite things:
  • Public Service. I'm Lead for Talent Acquisition at the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. 
  • Young Government Leaders (YGL) I'm the Prez! 
  • Minimalist Running: I've run 4 marathons (2 in Vibram FiveFingers). I completed my first Ultra (50k) and I may have a minimalist shoe problem. 
  • Dancing: I dance Lindy Hop, Blues, and Balboa here in DC. 
  • Information: I read voraciously and perhaps overshare information. Hopefully + will allow me to avoid spamming people who are totally uninterested in wonkery, recipes, politics, policy, or whatever else shows up in my Reader feed.
