This is a great infographic (it really is an infographic, and it really is great) about Canadian tuition costs by province. Lesson learned, if you’re going to go to med school anyone, go to med school in Newfoundland. Also, I had no idea that dentistry was so expensive! For comparison, in 2011, in the US, [...]
I forgot to post last weekend about the annual Canadian holiday “May 2-4 weekend”. Officially Victoria Day, it annoyingly seems to always occur the weekend before Memorial Day in the US. Since it is officially celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, it always coincides with being approximately around May 24. This is important [...]
I’ve never noticed Madras change as rapidly as over the last 3 years. Before that was when India’s markets opened and suddenly instead of bringing entire suitcases full solely with Nutella, Tang, and Jell-o, we were buying suitcases in India to bring back cheap clothes.

Movements go from blue to red, so longer trails and more red means people are more on the move. I love the evening picture above. If you [...]
As I’ve often said, the advantage of being in New York over Minneapolis is that many of my girlfriends here are single (and awesome!) Amusing observation about being a girl dating in New York: where in every other city girls start dating someone, and like it or not their imagination sometimes leads to thoughts of [...]
http://flowingdata.com/2012/04/25/world-happiness-report-makes-statisticians-unhappy/ There’s a couple of graphs but here’s one: And his quote from Kaiser Fung: I’m really curious how these domains add up to 100% exactly. Since the data came from some kind of survey, you typically would allow each respondent to pick more than one domains in which he or she is happy. If [...]
