Interactive Map Showing Immigration Data Since 1890

Another great interactive info from NYT. They not only put the data in maps. Both the choose of nationalities and making the bubble size proportional to population are real examples of journalism.

Take a look at how italian or irish inmigrantion has declined since 1920's to today. Also amazing the growth of mexican inmigration in the last years.

Yahoo!, still Nº1 in Japan

Yahoo! not only keeps the advantage over Google in Japan, but increases in the last year. The source is a Comscore release, that only sizes search market. Should be noted that in Japan Yahoo! is a joint venture with Softbank, a japanese telecomunications and media corporation. Maybe Carol Bartz (new Y! SEO) should take a look at the international market, too.

Most dangerous streets in the world, Irak; Second, El Salvador

El Salvador is, after Irak, the most dangerous place on Earth 

(Honduras ranks fourth). As it is the case of DC, in El Salvador weapons are widespread: almost 10% of the population -basically men- carry guns in the streets. No wonder why many restaurants and shops display a door sticker of "Guns forbidden here" next to the one about dogs.

Song of the week: You broke my heart

Not truly original, or innovative, it ain't the key moment in some relevant group history, but this song by Lavender Diamond has magic. Included in the The calvary of light EP, it shows the same innocence as the first Belle & Sebastian records and some kind of religious feeling, as if it was based on an appalachian theme. Looking at the basic structures, all the songs by Lavender Diamond share the same style. At the same time all look pale by his side.

"I just want to say sorry"

Great video by Channel 4 News after UK PM, Gordon Brown, saying that he would not be taking any personal responsibility for the economic downturn. They collect famous apologies from the likes of Bill Clinton or Russell Brand.
