Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432612456

The Impact of Vaccines in the 20th Century.

This is such a nice visualization. You can clearly see the impact the introduction of each vaccine had on these United States of Denial of Medical Benefits. I call it USDMB. (I'm just missing the U. Got suggestions?)

It is fascinating to see how some diseases (Measles) were quite prevalent and killing in great intensity, while others (Polio) got going perhaps as populations grew and mixed, with others still (Hepatitis A) were intense, then lighter and then completely gone after the vaccine. 

Polio is perhaps the most dramatic, you can see it attacking us and them BOOM! We drop a world of hurt on polio.

The graphics were featured in the WSJ: http://goo.gl/j2n8Ls There are a few more on that site, please check 'em out. They were originally created by Project Tycho at the University of Pittsburgh:... more »

I am in too many meetings related to digital marketing and analytics, that should not surprise you. What might surprise you is how frequently I'll see the below Dilbert come to life. 

The internet has not been a boon to truth, now we just have more data to confuse people with. And what's heart-breaking is how we all seem to have lost our ability to use our natural skepticism of crap and common sense in these situations.

Just because there is a number on a pretty slide does not make it true. Even if it is being presented by an authoritative person. Even if the slide has copious footnotes, with references to authoritative sources. (That last one is perhaps an even better reason to be doubtful!).  

People: Be, a tiny bit skeptical (without being rude). And, never lose sight of your common sense!

The very slow – but steady – growth in acceptance for Obamacare!

Slow developing nightmare for those who opposed ACA. Americans increasingly think of it as a success, and approve of how Obama is handling health care issue.

It is of course not a surprise that people like to have healthcare. It is not clear is if people who were rabidly against it (across social classes), will vote differently now that most of the short-term FREAK OUT NOW ranting politicians were proven wrong. 

Hypothesis time. The failure line is slowly going down, it is now at 42 (from 58). But, the line for the law being Kept The Same or Expanded is at 49. What do you think is going on?

The Buyerarchy of Needs: So Awesome!!

The world would be a simpler place if all humans followed the this pyramid when deciding if they should buy something. The only flaw I see is that sometimes and some things, we simply can't make. Then skip to buy. But otherwise... Use existing > Borrow > Swap > Thrift > Make > Buy seems to sensible.

And, do pause for a moment and think of the immense impact on humanity, business, our behavior, and indeed life quest if we followed this.

Your brand values are everywhere, especially in little nooks and crannies.  This is a great example.

It makes you smile. It makes you love the brand a bit more. But, most of all, it really delights you that there is someone at this company that cares so much.

Almost all companies fail at this (except one famous one). The price of always wanting to scale, to be big, to be efficient. Sad.

But, let's rejoice at the examples we can find!

Are you paying a penalty or getting a bonus just because you are married? It depends, insightful chart below.

The largest penalties, for no-children couples, fall on the poor or the affluent, as well as couples where two people are making similar amounts. For couples with children, it is mostly a penalty situation.

Use this to plan when to propose to your beloved as to if it makes sense to get married, and then plan what proportion each of you will make (because in the great USofA that really does matter, look at the deep purple as you go up).

There are more graphs and detail here: http://goo.gl/uhGCMN Among the insights is this really amazing one...

When countries design their tax systems, they have to make some choices. Here are three possible goals:

1. Higher-income people pay higher tax rates than lower-income people.

2. Married couples who earn the same amount of money pay the same amount in taxes, no matter who earns the money.

3. Taxes don’t depend on whether couples are married.

It’s not possible to achieve all three goals at the same time. Most wealthy countries give up on the second goal, favoring couples with two earners over couples with only one. The United States gives up on the third.

As with the management saying “fast, good and cheap,” you can pick only two.___

How fast, how furious?

This awesome graph charts the percentage of film time that is spent on fast activity and furious activity in the F&F movies. As you can see with each recent installment, fast is creeping up. But it is furious where there is amazing growth.

It is as if the film creators have figured out that the public is not really reading the magazine for the articles, and decided to go all pictures! (If you get my mixed metaphors. :))

On other dimensions, furious language (four-letter words) are actually down (no time for talk!), barbecuing and saying grace before a meal... also down. :)

This is the most thoughtful present I received in a long time. 

I am a gigantic Calvin and Hobbes fan. A peer of mine had her husband draw this custom painting of them wearing Google Glass in the same color as the one I use!

So many things come together for me in this picture, I can't even describe. I was profoundly touched.

(PS: It is not my birthday today, just saw this on my desk and thought I would share it with y'all.)

This is f'ing insane! And, that word does not do this graph justice. OMG. Just OMG! Look at the history of camera sales!

Humans and cameras are having an amazing impact on our culture, memories, relationships, and so much more because of this graph.

Always smile, even when you don't think so, you are on camera.

Traditional cameras are not going away, but anything except the mid-high to super-high is going to be massively challenged. We simply don't need them.

Free Amos Yee! The political dissident you've never heard of!

This is a pretty amazing video. Amos rant is honest, bold, crazy, amazing, funny, and meant to shock. Some of you will be upset (even if you don't know where Singapore is). I suspect most of you will be stunned with his eloquently expressed thoughts. 

He was arrested for this, and is facing prison time. 

Meanwhile the entire national press of Singapore (Tv, Print, Radio) is attacking him. If I sum up most of it, here is how it goes: "You have the right to say what you want, but rights also apply to those who hear and if you might offend those who hear your words then you should not speak them else you will be punished."

Many of these Singaporeans are justifying their attacks on Amos' free speech because it is how things work in America. 

Again. What the f! 

It is completely irrelevant if I or you or anyone agree with what Amos says. It is completely irrelevant if you feel his language is offensive or not (it is not, and he is just a teen). He has the right to say whatever the heck he wants to. And, you have the right to ignore him, disagree with him, or respond to him with a video of your own.

What you don't have the right to is to arrest him, fine him or otherwise bring the force of the government upon him. 

What does it say about Singapore's government (a place I do like and visit at least for one week every other year), if they can't even let a teen speak his mind?

Free Amos Yee​!

One of my all-time favorite quotes illustrates that there are two types of people in the world. Ms. Greene inspires me to be in the second group.

It all comes down to perspective. What's ours. What's theirs.

This cartoon does explain, for me, thousands of years of human history and human action (sadly mostly destructive).

It also gives me hope that if we recognize this, if we are a bit more open minded about looking at things from the other person/party's perspective, that we might change our actions.

Climate change article coming. Please lay your weapons own. It does not attack any person/party/theory. Bring an open mind. 

I was really surprised to see all the yellow in the first graph. In large numbers, Republicans do not believe in Climate Change and pretty much every Republican Senator (I've given up on the House - both parties) believes that, and executes their political agenda accordingly.

So, why all that sea of yellow? If 63% of Americans are saying Yes, if most even red state counties are yellow, why would the politicians still be so against any climate change action? Even small action? Don't these people want to get re-elected!

Then, I changed the drop-down at the top. "Estimated % of adults who think global warming is mostly caused by human activities."

Boom!

(That is the environment expiring by the way.)

A sea of blue.

In fact, every red state is a sea of light or dark blue.

Now, the strategy of the Republican senator makes complete sense. If their constituents don't believe we are causing this, if they believe it is all natural in massive numbers, it makes sense they are pandering accordingly.

Two last thoughts, one hopeful and the other not.

1. Population density is an interesting dimension (though that is not how the US Senate works). 48% of the US population believe Global Warming is due to human activities. This is a source of hope.

2. There is diversity of opinion. For example, my state California should be all yellow in the second graph. It is not. Tons of blue. Likewise, in deep Republican states, there is some Yellow. It is good to look at this county by county - in case you want to drive change.

I want to repeat, this is not about attacking one party or the other. It was interesting to have data finally explain why certain people behave a certain way. In in that sense, the response of the Republican, and Red State Democratic representatives, has an explanation below. 

You can play with the graphs here: http://goo.gl/VDuIbj And there's a lot more detail if you are interested.___

The wonderful folks at Pew have a wonderful new analysis about US smartphone usage. You can read the study here: http://goo.gl/MY2rYr Regardless of your business, it can help influence your strategy.

This is one that is interesting. 54% of the people say Smartphones are not always needed, yet most people believe their phones provide freedom, are helpful and totally worth the cost! :)

We are all both over-reacting to mobile phones, and under-reacting. The former because we see big raw usage numbers (yet, rarely dig deeper to separate our social and gaming out of those numbers), and the latter because we are too entrenched in old ways of thinking (put the entire Fortune 1000 here in their profound lack of imagination when it comes to mobile).

Mobile is the next big thing. But, for most companies, more thought needs to put put into what the big is for them. Starts with reading... more »

Something really interesting to think about... Industry of Each State's Biggest Employer!

Let me save you the legend reading trouble, all that blue is Wal-Mart! (And think of how many people will be impacted by their wonderful decision recently related to wage increases. Go Wal-Mart!!)

Some additional interesting bits from the source...

Washington is Air Travel because of Boeing, and Connecticut because of UTC/Pratt and Whitney.

I'm a bit surprised at all the violet. I can see why in CA Healthcare would be the biggest employer, we have a huge number of people, but why not for Florida or other high population states. Don't their people need Healthcare? 

What do you see in this data?

How to be an artist, a flow chart.

It is more true than you might imagine. I would go so far as to say that the reason I have written 846,537 words on my blog so far, is simply the desire to get better and better at the No strand you see below.

It does not matter what your job is, you are an artist. Use the flow below.

Food for thought if you are choosing a career in music, pick Blues and avoid Rap and Hip Hop!

This lovely graph shows the average age of death of Male and Female musicians by music genre. It has really interesting insights.

Did you imagine Gospel would be lower than Country (or Jazz)? World Music seems to have long lived female musicians. 

Any student of correlation-causation will look at this carefully to separate out if the music is the cause or a certain type of personality that takes to that type of music or the environmental variables at play. Lots of interesting things to think about! (Murder accounts of 6% of all deaths in the sample, but was the cause of 51% of the deaths in rap musicians to date.)

Data can help crack our silly prejudices about our peer citizens.

Last week I was really upset about this NY School's apology: http://goo.gl/mosIAB The pledge was said in many foreign languages, yet only Arabic got this awful prejudicial reaction. 

Below is a chart I bumped into this morning. It shows that the religious affiliations of Arab Americans - a majority are of various christian faith.

This is not the reason the pledge should have been allowed, or the implicit hysteria erased. But I do hope it gives all those people who protested food for thought.

America is only four presidents’ lives old!

I'm an immigrant to America, and I come from a country with thousands and thousands of years of history. Hence, I do believe, sorry, that America is like a toddler. Sometimes petulant, sometimes cute, sometimes stumbling, so full of promise.

But a toddler. When some of my fellow Americans say "Greatest country in the history of human civilization", I really don't think they know what they are talking about. After all, this country just showed up on the human civilization map.

When President Johnson was born, President John Adams (1735-1826) was still alive. And just like that, we've connected present day to the Founding Fathers."

Is it just me or is pricing for Wi-Fi on a plane getting a little bit too crazy?  $26 for a 4.5 hour flight I took the other day. $26!!  

I don't expect the rate I get for a month at home ($25 for a month at 25 mbps!), but this seems like pillaging a captive audience. Am I being irrational?

Your job title should not be Digital Marketer or Digital Analyst or Digital anything. It should be... just Marketer or Business Analyst (or Universal Data Analyst as someone suggested).

This post outlines how to plot a path for your career to make it future-proof. It shares how to make it more satisfying and fun. Ain't that worth fighting for? :)

Pope Francis is winning, Pope Francis is winning!

Ok, so overall he is not as high as John Paul II. But he is getting there. His Mostly Favorables are actually the highest.

I'm not a catholic or a christian, but you don't have to be to broadly appreciate the fresh perspective that Pope Francis has brought to the church. Especially the revolutionary perspective of focusing on the poor and the needy and going back to the roots of the religion. Something, that across multiple religions, has been lost over time.

As a leader, I'm also fascinated by how one person can bring about such a deep amount of change, so quickly. I hope someone will write a book on leadership.

Pope Francis is advanced in age. I for one am praying for his long life to continue the work he has started. It will be painful to many in his own fold, and in the rooms next to him, but it is great for everyone else.

Data below, from Pew  http://goo.gl/sfmz3U, is for Catholics. But even for other religions, as perhaps evidenced by this post, he is doing really well. Please see that data, and more here: http://goo.gl/sfmz3U

Love has no labels!

We all make snap judgement. It would be foolish not to admit that. But the more we are aware of our subconscious biases, the more we can work to stop ourselves, our families, our friends and peers. 

I love the video below. Here's a helpful site (take the quiz to spot your implicit bias): http://goo.gl/ygJ1d6

How much is a limb (or pinky finger or foot or...) worth?

If you are planning to lose an arm, for work, make sure you do so in Nevada. You'll get almost 900k! Definitely do not do that in Alabama, you'll only get 49k!

I wonder way one state would consider a part of your body to be worth so much less than another? What, other than corrupt politicians/bureaucrats, could the reason be?

On the Propublica site, do check it out http://goo.gl/rJoQ3m, there is a lot more data. Fingers are, on average just 24k on average ($95k in Oregon!). Amazingly legs are much cheaper than arms. 

And, as a male, I was surprised a male body part, if you lose it, was worth just $27k on average! Oh, the humanity!! :)

And now for some great news... Kids aren't dying as much as they used to!!!

Changes below are just over the last 23 years. And it is worth noting the fine print, when when babies die of birth trauma, it's before they are a month old and not when they are say two.

We still have problems, Malaria killed half a million kids in 2013. Thank goodness for Bill and Melinda Gates who have made Malaria eradication one of their main focus areas (because Lord knows we need to obsess about bombing countries, and more countries, watch out Iran here come Bibi and Boehner!). Malaria is holding steady though.

HIV/AIDS is really up in the graph, though from 2003 they are heading down. 

Notice other interesting drops as well: Drowning and road deaths. 

All in all, great news. All happy news.

I am in too many meetings related to digital marketing and analytics, that should not surprise you. What might surprise you is how frequently I'll see the below Dilbert come to life. 

The internet has not been a boon to truth, now we just have more data to confuse people with. And what's heart-breaking is how we all seem to have lost our ability to use our natural skepticism of crap and common sense in these situations.

Just because there is a number on a pretty slide does not make it true. Even if it is being presented by an authoritative person. Even if the slide has copious footnotes, with references to authoritative sources. (That last one is perhaps an even better reason to be doubtful!).  

People: Be, a tiny bit skeptical (without being rude). And, never lose sight of your common sense!

If you are not following me on Instagram (do it here: http://instagram.com/avinashplusworld), I'd posted this earlier and it is too good not to share with you all!

Nothing quite captures the angst of the telecom companies quite like this quote. And what visual way to frame it.

Except it is not quite that black and white. For example, would the world buy so many devices (from telecom companies) and so much expensive data (from telecom companies) were it not for the desire to be on Facebook? 

PS: Mr. O'Brien feels this way about Google and other tech companies as well.
PPS: Under any definition, Mr. O'Brien's statement would be considered beyond sexist.

The Impact of Vaccines in the 20th Century.

This is such a nice visualization. You can clearly see the impact the introduction of each vaccine had on these United States of Denial of Medical Benefits. I call it USDMB. (I'm just missing the U. Got suggestions?)

It is fascinating to see how some diseases (Measles) were quite prevalent and killing in great intensity, while others (Polio) got going perhaps as populations grew and mixed, with others still (Hepatitis A) were intense, then lighter and then completely gone after the vaccine. 

Polio is perhaps the most dramatic, you can see it attacking us and them BOOM! We drop a world of hurt on polio.

The graphics were featured in the WSJ: http://goo.gl/j2n8Ls There are a few more on that site, please check 'em out. They were originally created by Project Tycho at the University of Pittsburgh:... more »

Opposites attract, but in the end we just want to date ourselves!

Interesting analysis from 538, http://goo.gl/HgNhO1, based on a million matches made by eHarmony's algorithm. People basically are interested in people like themselves.

Do you have a theory/insight about Japanese and African-American men?

Here's an excerpt on men and women from the article: 
- - -
Women on eHarmony favor men who are similar not just in obvious ways — age, attractiveness, education, income — but also in less apparent ones, such as creativity. Even when eHarmony includes a quirky data point — like how many pictures are included in a user’s profile — women are more likely to message men similar to themselves. In fact, of the 102 traits in the data set, there was not one for which women were more likely to contact men with opposite traits.

Men were a little more open-minded. For 80 percent of traits, they were more willing to message those different from them. They still preferred mates who were similar in terms of height or attractiveness, but they cared less about these traits — and they didn’t care much at all about other things women cared about, like similarity in education level or number of photos taken. They cared less about whether their match shared their ethnicity.

I do feel that some diversity is good in the gene pool. : )___

"Walled World" - the uneven distribution of population and wealth worldwide. 

73% of the world's income is with 14% of the world's population.

The visualization itself is an interesting way to show an insight. I found the two almost hidden features to be quite nice. 

The hard red lines indicate some of the most heavily policed borders on earth. In context of the contrast between the green and the gray, you realize that’s not an accident.

The yellow dots represent the world's top 50 cities with the highest Quality of Life.

In every good infographic, different people will see different things. What do you see here?

The thing about a good example of visualization of data is that it makes you go: Ah ha!  Or hmmmm. Or omg, is that not crazy!

It is hard to get to. This visualization does that pretty well, and it is so profoundly simple. 

You've heard of the phrase "in dog years", but I doubt you really got it. I mean, really got it. this makes it easier.

Now. Go look at the x axis, find your dog/cat's age. Look at the y-axis. Marvel. Give your dog/cat a big hug. (Be careful with the cat, I'm told they don't like hugs. They accept worship though. : ))

I am delighted with the recent speed with which my fellow Americans have made homosexuality an almost non-issue. Let everyone be happy as they are.

Sucking hope out of humanity / the worst from our worst.

I realize at some level that this is our own fault. If we did not click on these awful links, this thing would fall apart. Just look at "From Around The Web" links. So awful. On an article about space exploration! Zero relevance!!

Taboola and its ilk are benefiting from our low intelligence. One can't blame them. I do blame us for clicking on these types of links. It makes me a little sad that we humans can't see through this click-bait crap and we still click on the links.

It is also disappointing that LA Times, and many, many other sites, are willing to make a cent on this and have their brand take a hit for being just another link farm.

It is very hard to stand out in the auto space. All creativity seems to have been sucked out by a gigantic galactic vacuum. 

But, every once in a while, you see something clever. 

This is one of those times. Can you keep up?

Every branding video you've ever seen...

The reason this works so gloriously well, the reason it is so painful and hilarious to watch, is how profoundly it reflects reality. 

It is amazing that most humans still get tricked (and that most CMOs continue to allocate budget to create this!).

Math in nature! The Romanesque Cauliflower is a favorite of mine, mostly because it displays a logarithmic spiral in action. The number of spirals is a Fibonacci number!

 It is so, so cool, not to mention pretty. #coolmath #naturerocks #nofilter

You've seen Calvin a lot here. I do adore Bill Watterson's creation so very much. And now my son, who's inherited my vast CnH comics collection, quotes them to me ad verbatim.  

Here's one from yesterday: "I like maxims that don't encourage behavior modification." :)  At his young age, I don't think he completely gets all the nuance, but he did use it in the perfect situation!

The comic strip below is one of my favorites.
