I am not close enough to this story to really comment. No one approves when protests turn violent.
But last September, the local paper The Baltimore Sun published an in-depth report called Undue Force. The opening paragraph:
The city has paid about $5.7 million since 2011 over lawsuits claiming that police officers brazenly beat up alleged suspects. One hidden cost: The perception that officers are violent can poison the relationship between residents and police.
Perhaps more people should have read this…
More Wisconsin centric visualizations (though I can’t embed this one). Apparently Wisconsin leads the country in heavy drinking (heavy is defined as more than one drink a day for women and two a day for men).
North Central Wisconsin has the heaviest concentration. I’ve spent time there. There’s not much else to do. Though northern Minnesota isn’t as bad, and that seems basically analogous.
Minnesota didn’t need as many sweaters either…
Via fixr.com, the top import for every state. Apparently in Wisconsin, the most important thing (from outside the state – beer, cheese and bratwurst don’t need to be imported) is a good sweater…
I’ve mentioned how much my girls like our Amazon Echo for music. But tonight they were being bickering sisters and couldn’t agree on a station. And they were arguing over a Demi Lovato station vs. an Ariana Grande station.
I mean, seriously, how different would those stations be?
So I said, “sorry, I choose the station”. They said, “no jazz” (because that’s what I really like). I know they like old Elton John (Crocodile Rock) so I said “Alexa play Elton John station”.
We got old classics. I skipped some marginal songs, but made them listen to anything really classic.
I had to skip some more and exceeded my skip limit, so we switched to the Pandora Elton John station:
So total bickering turned into an old classics dance fest. Pretty fun.
I knew dietary supplements were completely unregulated, but when a study finds that 4 out of 5 don’t even contain the ingredient on the label, it’s worse than I thought.

Something funny happens when I put my iPhone 6 and my Nexus 6 together on my desk (charging them up).
