New report: For the first time, half of seniors use the internet. As of April 2012, 53% of American adults age 65 and older use the internet or email. Though these adults are still less likely than all other age groups to use the internet, the latest data represent the first time that half of seniors are going online. After several years of very little growth among this group, these gains are significant.

The Most (and Least) Peaceful Places in America

Over the past year, a majority of states, 35 of 50, became more peaceful. However, there is substantial geographic variation. New England ranks as the nation’s most peaceful region with the lowest scores; Maine is the nation’s most peaceful state, followed by New Hampshire and Vermont. Minnesota and Utah are fourth and fifth; North Dakota, Washington, Hawaii, Rhode Island, and Iowa round out the top ten.  
Louisiana is the least peaceful state on the State Peace Index, followed by Tennessee, Nevada, Florida, and Arizona. Missouri, Texas, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Mississippi round out the ten least peaceful states.

The Next Time Someone Says the Internet Killed Reading Books, Show Them This Chart
“Remember the good old days when everyone read really good books, like, maybe in the post-war years when everyone appreciated a good use of the semi-colon? Everyone’s favorite book was by Faulkner or Woolf or Roth. We were a civilized civilization. This was before the Internet and cable television, and so people had these, like, wholly different desires and attention spans. They just craved, craved, craved the erudition and cultivation of our literary kings and queens. Well, that time never existed. Check out these stats from Gallup surveys. In 1957, not even a quarter of Americans were reading a book or novel. By 2005, that number had shot up to 47 percent. I couldn’t find a more recent number, but I think it’s fair to say that reading probably hasn’t declined to the horrific levels of the 1950s.”

NCAA Tournament, 2012 - Two charts by Christopher Keach 

First: “Here’s a radial version of an NCAA Tournament bracket I created, after seeing a European soccer bracket on fastcodesign.com. I don’t see this replacing the old bracket-style brackets anytime soon, but at least it kept me busy for a few hours. My blog has some info on my Adobe Illustrator process if anyone wants to try to join the fun next year.”

Second: “When making my radial tourney bracket, I looked up the official colors of all the competing schools (excluding those which lost in the play-in games). Only two didn’t have a web page or PDF with official Pantone and/or hex colors. In such cases I pulled colors from their web page layouts (one was brown and one was burgundy, but I don’t remember which). Also, a couple teams list as black could have been listed in the gold/yellow category instead. Finally, Louisville is in the red column, despite their glowing orange semi-final uniforms.”
