From Iraq War veterans who committed suicide after being turned away from mental health treatment to botched surgeries and fatal neglect of elderly veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs paid out more than $200 million for nearly 1,000 veterans’ wrongful death cases in the decade after 9/11.

Study: US government is an oligarchy
Researchers from Princeton and Northwestern Universities released a study in April that found U.S. politicians more often reflect the wishes of the rich and powerful over the needs of the majority of Americans, who have a "minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy."
So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

Say Hey To Amazing-Er Maps!
There’s lots of maps on the internet. The idea behind this project is to improve, to give people a forum to show how they might display the same information. Anyone can contribute under a common set of guidelines:
- See a map on the internet
- Find and open the data or source
- Create and share the new map
Pretty simple. And because it’s on GitHub, the repository can be an evolving directory of open data and resources. That also means the process can change or improve as needed.
What it’s not is a jab at the original map maker. It’s a way for anyone to see a map of economic activity in the US and improve that map based on their knowledge of data visualization, or economic geography, for example.
I’ve created some examples to explain the idea behind Amazing-Er Maps further. Within the repository you can comment (please comment), suggest (please suggest), ask (please ask), and contribute (please contribute). And if you need help, just ask!
It’s also nice to hear what some of my favorite cartographers and map friends are saying about Amazing-er Maps
Thanks, Jonah (@jonahadkins)

Introduction to Data Scraping
Data-driven journalism is flourishing as more government agencies, nonprofits and research institutions and think tanks publish their data sets on the Internet. This data is most often available in a format that is easily downloaded and analyzed. The downside, however, is that nearly every journalist across the country has access to the same data.
To stand out, journalists need to find, gather and analyze interesting data that has not been neatly packaged. And there is a proliferation of such information tucked away on local, state and federal websites and on sites run by private companies.
