Future of Food – Infographic Slide Show
This future of food infographic slideshow from WIRED paints a grim picture of the food problems. The one featured above shows some of the major global problems that prevent the food supply across the world. As you can see, hoarding (which is a trade practice to ban exports due to the fear of food shortages) is a major problem in the countries like India and China. Which is also another reason why I have paid $ 40 for a 20 lb bag of rice recently (I got the same for $10 an year ago) [via Cool Infographics]

Do the Swing States Swing that Much?
Robert at Eager eyes, got curious about the so called swing states phenomena in the US presidential elections [35 more visualizations on US elections 2008] and plotted the above graph to see how much these swing states actually swing. You can see that instead of swinging every other election, these states are actually pretty stable for a while before switching their party.
Happy Weekend & Halloween (for my US readers) 🙂
