Junk Mail Madness - How To Make It Stop! Every time we embark on a new year, I think about all the extra junk and clutter that has accumulated over the last. Two areas that I would like to cut down on even more is junk mail and phone calls from telemarketers. One is downright wasteful and the other is utterly annoying. We’ve been working on the many harassing phone calls we get each day using caller ID and blocking through the Do Not Call Registry, but my mail is still teeming with junk.

Along with marking your mailings, “Return to Sender” and sending it back to the culprit, you can also open the ones that have pre-paid return envelopes often and send it back with a firm request to be removed from the mailing list. I like this idea and I don’t. It’s free and easy, but the junk mail still gets printed and mailed, so it doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get off the list and it adds to the destruction of more trees. This subject is not new to Care2. “Want to know how many trees that is?” And that’s not even the end of it. Print Friendly & PDF. How to Do Power Structure Research. By G. William Domhoff Some of you might want to do your own studies of national or local power structures. This document provides both the general rationales and the specific steps and sources for doing such studies. It may sound too simple when I say this, but power structure studies are really a combination of network analysis and content analysis.

Both methods are easy enough to understand in principle, and they are very respectable in the social sciences. They can be used for large and complex studies by employing software that will be mentioned as this document unfolds. If you start simple with a small project and do the first steps by hand, you will have a good intuitive understanding of what is really going on if and when you advance to huge databases and fancy software. A network analysis traces out the people and organizations that make up the power structure, and then figures out how they connect to and influence government.

I know what you’re thinking: Seriously? Another weather app? The designers behind Haze at least have a geographic excuse: "it’s no secret that we’ve always been a little infatuated with weather apps, being from the cold Scandinavia," says Willi Wu, lead developer at Robocat.

"It’s this combination of readily available data, the tangibility of the concept, and the intimate relationship we all share with the weather that keeps us coming back to this type of app. " Robocat (who partnered with another app shop called Taptanium on Haze) has made two weather apps before Haze and is already at work on another, but they’re trying something new this time: encoding dynamic weather information into the look and feel of the app itself, rather than spelling it out in text and icons. To be fair, Haze still gets the bulk of its information across using words, numbers, and tappable icons. Any "glanceable" display has to maximize its information density in a way that appeals directly to our senses. Plane Finder.
