For more news about things which move the world, or at least twitter, go to #datajournos. In this article you can see a summary of my twitter posts of the last two weeks.
How much does the US owe other nations?
The BBC created a interactive graphic that displays the debts of certain nations, e.g. the United States, France or Germany. It turns out that a lot of nations have about equal debts in between each other.
Besides showing just dept-relation, one receives complementary numbers which portray the situation for each country in a borader and deeper going way, e.g. GDP.
The scenarion which is unique and a first time appearence in history is currently not predictable. The different scenarios could also be explained to the audince by visualisation tools, one for each scenario.
There was a huge drop for the shares at the stock markets in New York and Milan. The EPA is investing several car software after the huge Volkswagen scandal; currently it is unclear if the EPA has found any additional wrongdoing.
This graphic story has been published while the construction was still on going but it explains the concepts of the building very well. I think this can be seen as a good example for a two page grapic story.
The first longtime effects of marjuana in Colorado
Since marjuana has become legal in Colorado a lot of positve and often suprising reports about have been seen in the media. The legalisation also opened up new fields of study. Medical longtime obeservation and researches for example.
Now after a couple of years, hospitals and doctors are announcing that the number of patients who come to them with an illness linked to marjuana use has highly increased. People report to feel queasy and see indications of the flu.
Besides this I will have another new future on my page by tomorrow (21. November), check it out its a portfolio page of mine.
New steps in medicine = new ways to dope
Antibodies are the new hope for people who have amyotrophia diseases. They have the ability to slow down and even stop the decrease of muskels.
This skill is highly interesting to the world of doping. Experts say it is easier as genetic doping and it is not for the rest of the athlets life. The problem for athlets might be that the antibodies are, at the moment, visible.
Besides the use of the antibodies by healthy people is related to high risks for their health.
Western Europe congratualates and demands of the new President. Countries like Russia or Turkey whom with the relations have been difficult in the recent past are stating they welcome the opportunity for a new start between the United States and their countries.
The written story tells about new evidence that was found which possibley proves that Earhart has died as a cast away. The other older theory is that Earhart died in a plane crash.
In the viedo which is available with the story shows new footage that was found just recently. It shows Earhart shortly before she left for the try to fly around the world as first women – a try for a record. She never finshed her mission and her body was never found.
The Stepanows, who are the biggest whistle-blower related to the huge doping scandal in Russia and the Russian track and field team, will recieve now after the olympics support by the IOC.
Critics say the support given to the Stepanows was over due and should have been given from the start on. Julia Stepanowa tried to participate at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janrerio, but the IOC did not give their approval.
In contrast to the common mapping in red and blue the maps are in common geographical color. Next to that the creaters added logical geographical names to the islands, seas, etc. that was created, e.g. ‘the American Ocean’.
JS code helps to find informations about ski alpine racers
In class the JS project just got started. In group work we’ll design our first apps.
To get inspiration and a better understanding for the JS language I was checking out some examples. This one is the huge data base of the International Ski Federation in which every athlet can be found with any records about his or her career.
This time of year is when the majority of college students are starting to prepare for summer internships and jobs. Having an organized plan and an updated resume is vital for success. At the University of Denver, there are a multitude of resources to aid students in the struggle to obtain summer internships.
In the last about two years a lot of construction sites have been seen in the area around the University of Denver. The University has also just finished most of their current projects e.g. the Sie International Relations Complex or the Engineering and Computer Science Building.
Evaluating answers with multiple options in the turn out?
In this article there is a good idea how a certain number of yes-and-no questions can still allow you to figure out multiple options in the turn out.
As there are just two sides, yes and no, or black and white, to which you can count an answer, there will be intersections of certain turn outs. For example two options are represented by YES and two by NO. Maybe due to the overall result there will be one option that collects more support then all others; but what if not?
The solution let the people value a certain amount of questions they think a very important. This will very likely help you to nail them down to one option which they favour.
A long time study comes to the conclusion the white working class, those who didn’t go to college, earn 9% less now then in 1996. In contrast the income of white college graduates has increased by 23%.
This is in line with a decline of the income of the working class which has already occured from 1978 to 1996. The saying it doesn’t matter if one goes to college or not is very much disproven by these numbres.
