Marianne Bouchar: A data journalist’s microguide to environmental data

With the recent onslaught of hurricanes, such as Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and wildfires in Spain, Portugal and California, data journalists have been working hard to interpret scientific data, as well as getting creative to make it reader friendly.

The COP23 (do I hear climate change?) also serves as a great opportunity for data journalists to take a step back and ask:

What is the best way of reporting on data related to the environment? Where do you find the data in the first place? How do you make it relatable to the public and which challenges do you face along the way?

Quotes December 24, 2017

“You only live once; but if you do it right, once is enough.”
Mae West
“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”
Mahatma Gandhi
“Don’t rush into any kind of relationship. Work on yourself. Feel yourself, experience yourself and love yourself. Do this first and you will soon attract that special loving other.”
Russ Von Hoelscher
“Your body is precious. It is your vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.”
“Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.”
“Living with anxiety is like being followed by a voice. It knows all your insecurities and uses them against you. It gets to the point when it’s the loudest voice in the room. The only one you can hear.”
Some of the biggest achievements of your life will come from helping others achieve.

Happy Holidays

Wishing you all the best for this holiday season, which ever holy days you choose to celebrate.

Today’s encore selection — from The Sound of Their Music: The Story of Rodgers & Hammerstein by Frederick Nolan. Richard Rodgers was a towering giant among 20th century composers, but his often sweet, sentimental and reaffirming music belied the fact that he was a tough-minded businessman and “vulpine womanizer”:

DIY Zombie Frappuccino: 4 Steps (with Pictures)

Carolyne Aarsen: Giving thanks

This is a picture taken close to our place. If you’ve stopped in at my website you’ve probably seen some of these.

From the letters I’ve been getting on that post and the comments, I have to admit that I live in a gorgeous spot of the world. Open spaces and fields. Blue skies and changing seasons.

Right now, thanks to decent weather, harvest is going full tilt. It hasn’t been an easy year. Last fall the farmers had to leave so much crop out because of early snow, too much rain in the fall and then more snow. So right now everyone who is out working late hours is happy and thankful.

In Canada we do Thanksgiving in October – which, ahem, is also my birthday. And each year I am thankful for so many things. Each year we also go around the table and ask everyone what they have been especially thankful for the past year. It’s always a warm and special time and it gives us all a chance to look back and realize what we have.
