The Most Important Coronavirus Statistic: 42% Of U.S. Deaths Are From 0.6% Of The Population. Americans are vigorously debating the merits of continuing to lock down the U.S. economy to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities: The #1 COVID problem 2.1 million Americans, representing 0.62% of the U.S. population, reside in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. (Nursing homes are residences for seniors needing help with activities of daily living, such as taking a shower or getting dressed, who also require 24/7 medical supervision; assisted living facilities are designed for seniors who need help with activities of daily living, but don’t require full-time on-site medical supervision.)

Fewer than half of the 89 films named best picture at the Oscars have passed a common measure of on-screen female representation known as the Bechdel Test.
A movie passes the Bechdel Test if there are at least two named female characters that have a conversation with one another about something other than a man. This conversation needs to happen just once for it to pass. The research also shows that a greater percentage of best picture winners passed the Bechdel test in the 1930s compared to the current decade. Recent winners such as Moonlight, Gladiator and Slumdog Millionaire all fail the test, along with two of this year's best picture nominees, teams from BBC 100 Women and More or Less have found.
Dunkirk, set during World War Two, doesn't have any named female characters. "We deserve our own narrative. What is 100 Women? "X" Marks the Spot. In 2002, I heard an economist characterizing this figure as containing a valuable economic insight.
Worldwide hemisphere-dependent lean in Cook pines - Johns - 2017 - Ecology. Under most conditions, trees grow vertically in response to the opposing influences of light and gravity (Wyatt and Kiss 2013).

The Asian American education story you probably don’t know. Most news stories focus on Asian Americans in elite colleges.
Most actually don’t go there, and many students struggle. The Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community is extremely diverse in terms of culture, language, and experiences in the United States. In California, it constitutes about 16% of the total population, and almost 90% of Asian Americans and over 70% of Pacific Islanders begin college in one of California’s public community colleges or four-year universities. An accurate assessment of AAPI student outcomes in California’s post-secondary institutions must measure the linguistic, cultural, religious, socioeconomic, and historical diversity of AAPI subgroups that can be statistically obscured when grouped under the large AAPI umbrella.
Data disaggregation in higher education will be critical to implementing more efficient and streamlined methods of meeting the disparate needs of California’s second fastest growing racial group. It's the Inequality, Stupid. Want more charts like these?

Williamson/The Washington Post) Working-class whites are the biggest beneficiaries of federal poverty-reduction programs, even though blacks and Hispanics have substantially higher rates of poverty, according to a new study to be released Thursday by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Government assistance and tax credits lifted 6.2 million working-class whites out of poverty in 2014, more than any other racial or ethnic demographic. Half of all working-age adults without college degrees lifted out of poverty by safety-net programs are white; nearly a quarter are black and a fifth are Hispanic.
