The 1850s Map that Made Modern Epidemiology

In 1854, Dr. John Snow produced a map of a London cholera outbreak which showed deaths from the disease concentrated around a water pump on Broad Street. The prevailing view at the time was that cholera spread through dirty air, but Snow hypothesized that it was actually spread through water and constructed this early medical data visualization to help prove it. Through a mix of personal interviews, clever detective work, and data analysis that included tables and a famous map, Snow manag...

"The ecologically minded smart city was supposed to replace neglected docklands and disused warehouses with a sea of wooden towers, protected by raincoats."

"Mechanised awnings would protect pedestrians from rain and snow during Toronto’s harsh winters, while traffic lights would optimise the flow of self-driving cars. A network of machines, including subterranean parcel delivery bots, and sensors tracking residents’ behaviour, would provide a blueprint for the connected cities of the future.... Only Toronto has welcomed Sidewalk Labs, making it a test bed for the company. Many residents baulked at the idea of surrendering control to Google, and tec...

Snow’s avatar app Zepeto registers 150M users, eyes China market

Some of you may recall the South Korean app Zepeto that went viral among Gen Z users a year and a half ago. The app, which renders selfies into animated avatars and lets people adorn their computer-generated manifestations with virtual items, appears to have sustained its relevance. It has amassed 150 million registered users, the company told TechCrunch recently, although its number of monthly active users, which is a better metric to gauge an app’s performance, hovers around 10 million.

Enjoy this dynamite pan flute cover of Snow's "Informer"

Late last night, an unidentified clip of some free-spirited dude in Birk's playing a pan flute cover of Snow's "Informer" popped into my feed. Well, I had to know where it came from, I mean, what was its story? After a short Internet dig, I discovered that it's actually an ad. An ad for a rolled Doritos chile limon-flavored product called Dinamita, "Flavor you can hear." The pan flute itself? As you'll see it's made OF these Dinamitas! This is really a work of art and I hope you appreciate it...

Alaska Automated Its Weather Stations and Created a Snow Data Disaster

Twice a day at National Weather Service Offices nationwide, personnel release weather balloons to measure atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity and wind speed.

Weatherwatch: how a March blizzard took England by surprise

Politicians in 1970 hoped better computers would improve forecasting – and they haveHalf a century ago, on 4 March 1970, an unexpected blizzard dumped more than 25cm of snow across central and south-east England overnight. Temperatures hovered around freezing and the snow settled, closing roads and airports. Morning trains from the Midlands arrived in London eight hours late.The problem was the lack of warning. The Met Office did not start issuing snow alerts until the early hours, and most peop...

Suddenly, as I'm working at my desk, tweaking this morning's sunrise photograph, a beautiful snowstorm sweeps in.

We don't often get those picturesque big, fluffy flakes, and I'm delighted to see it all from my window. I would have loved to have it falling on me as I went out on my sunrise run, but the sun and I were too early for it: [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Catching the Ultimate Break at Brian Head Resort

“What can you tell me about skiing ?” my husband Jamie queried.  I chuckled at his optimism. “I can’t remember the ending to movies I’ve repeatedly watched...and you expect me to remember a resort I skied once...20 years ago?!” Turns out, I underestimated the impact this Southern Utah resort tucked away in Dixie National Forest had on me. It all came flooding back as I stood on the summit marveling at Cedar Breaks National Monument’s 3-mile-wide stratified limestone cliffs in crimson, beige a...

Islanders: Garth Snow’s Most Memorable Trades

In light of the 2019-20 NHL Trade Deadline only being a few days away, I decided to look back on some of Garth Snow’s most memorable trades from when he was general manager of the New York Islanders. While Snow certainly wasn’t liked by many – if any – Islanders fans, he did make some trades that helped shape the beloved team that remains today. Since there were so many trades made by Snow, I will only be showing the five most memorable. #5: Reinhart for a 2015 First and Second-Round Pick ...

How to prepare for avalanches

In January of this year, a 34-year-old skier was killed inbounds at Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Alpine Resort, skiing a piste off of Alpine Meadows’s Scott Chair. That followed another avalanche that trapped eight skiers at Idaho’s Silver Mountain Ski Resort. Tragically, three of those skiers died. We already know that even more skiers and snowboarders are hitting up the backcountry — a reported 1.4 million two seasons ago, with continued exponential growth since then — and that they are putting thems...

Ski resort uses helicopter to bring in more snow

Over the weekend, the Luchon-Superbagnères ski resort in the French Pyrenees used a helicopter to bring in fresh snow to the slopes from higher elevations. The chopper dumped 50 tonnes of snow on the beginner and ski school slopes. From The Guardian: Hervé Pounau, the director of the local department council, said the cost of the operation would be recouped many times over by the business that would have been lost to a lack of snow. “It will cost us between €5,000 and €6,000, in th...
