Using Infographics to Educate the World About Human Rights As individuals, we may disagree on many issues, from philosophy to politics, to what constitutes proper nutrition. But if there is one topic everyone recognizes as tremendously important, it’s that everyone is entitled to basic human rights. One of the biggest challenges to getting people the rights they deserve as human beings, however, is awareness. And many human rights activist organizations have turned to visualization to help inform the public about issues going on in the world.

All the Stops These days, the NYPD’s “stop, question, and frisk” tactic is under fire. The policing measure, which encourages officers to stop and search people who appear suspicious, and which is used in Brooklyn more than any other borough, has in the last month been ruled unconstitutional, curbed by a pair of City Council bills, and inveighed against by the Democratic field of would-be mayors. But with only long-shot candidate John Liu calling for a complete end to stop-and-frisk, some form of the tactic is likely to endure. This visualization, which reflects the more than 530,000 stops that occurred in 2012, reveals who is being stopped, why they’re being stopped, and what, if anything, is being found by the police as a result. The data, originally made available by the NYPD, was recently compiled by the NYCLU.

In Climbing Income Ladder, Location Matters ATLANTA – Stacey Calvin spends almost as much time commuting to her job — on a bus, two trains and another bus — as she does working part-time at a day care center. She knows exactly where to board the train and which stairwells to use at the stations so that she has the best chance of getting to work on time in the morning and making it home to greet her three children after school. “It’s a science you just have to perfect over time,” said Ms.

Lawsuits brought under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which applies to the entire nation, offer one way to compare discrimination across the country. A study of cases that were published on two legal databases, Westlaw or Lexis, between 1982 and 2005 found that jurisdictions covered by Section 5 lost more such cases than the rest of the country, even though being covered might seem to deter discrimination. Judge Stephen F. Williams, who dissented from the federal appeals court decision reviewed by the Supreme Court, considered this data in his opinion. Based on it, he found that “a more narrowly tailored coverage formula — capturing only Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana, and possibly the covered portions of South Dakota and North Carolina — might be defensible.” But, he continued, “beyond these, the covered jurisdictions appear indistinguishable from their uncovered peers.” Voting Rights Act Map - Graphic
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.
