In the end…

US Presidential Election Polls 

John F. Kennedy vs. Richard Nixon

Jimmy Carter vs. Gerold Ford

George W. Bush vs. Al Gore

Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney

Binders Full of Burgers is “visualizing the US Election 2012. with burgers & fries.” Which is a clever way to trick a nation of people who are statistically fat and bad at math into looking at charts!

You’re probably late to this meme, so now’s the time to ketchup.

Seeking Translators

wearethedigitalkids:

I’m looking for translators who can help translate Chinese interviews into English for a research/film project that I’m working on. If anyone following here is interested, let me know! You can email me at amanda.mooney@edelman.com and I’ll share more details on the project, compensation, etc.. Participants can work from home (in any country), with flexible hours. 

Signal boost for Amanda.

There have been lots of superglue campaigns – and lots of ads riffing off puzzle pieces – but this one feels really fresh.

This beautiful library by Li Xiaodong Atelier is nestled in the small village of Huairou in China. Its interior features plenty of cozy nooks and crannies to read in and great care was taken with the exterior to make sure that it would blend with its natural surroundings. I really want to hang out there even though I can’t read a word of Chinese. They’ve gotta have some picture books, don’t they?

This library is lovely.

Hurricane Sandy has forced the cancellation of around 300 scheduled blood drives in areas affected by the storm. If you meet qualifications and are physically able, consider donating blood this week to make up the difference and help head off shortages.

More information on qualifying and finding a local donation center at the link.
