Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester United for 26 seasons, announced his retirement Wednesday. Below is how he compares with some of the longest-serving coaches and managers in major North American sports. Ferguson retired with one of the highest winning percentages in the English Premier League, putting him in the company of the N.F.L.'s Don Shula and the N.H.L.'s Scotty Bowman, both Hall of Famers. Ferguson won 13 titles, more than either Phil Jackson or John Wooden, two of the most successful coaches in North American sports.

Hyperakt's infographic on Internet Censorship in Iran is featured in an article, Iran's Web Censors vs. Google Reader , from The Washington Post. "Google's much-dreaded announcement on the coming demise of Google Reader has alarmed users in Iran - and drawn attention to the scale and complexity of online censorship there." "According to Reporters Without Borders and the University of Pennsylvania's Iran Media Program , the Iranian Internet is watched by a number of overlapping regulatory bodies, some of which ultimately report to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps."
In honor of Amnesty International's 50th anniversary, JESS3's visualization experts created a set of five infographics celebrating the non-profit's success in protecting human rights. This collection of infographics aims to inform the public about some of the issues Amnesty International is most passionate about: Maternal Health, Write for Rights, the Death Penalty, and Human Rights. This infographic compellingly pleads for Human Rights, by telling the story of torture victim Maher Arar.
Part of the research project that is keeping me too busy to blog involves capturing, coding and visualizing the issue agenda for various transnational networks.

Whether this means that the human rights movement has been colonized by the development community or vice-versa is hard to say from this.
