Map: Vaccine-Preventable Outbreaks This interactive map visually plots global outbreaks of measles, mumps, whooping cough, polio, rubella, and other diseases that are easily preventable by inexpensive and effective vaccines. Red triangles indicate attacks on vaccinators and healthcare workers, as well as announcements from both governments and non-state actors that have had an impact—either positive or negative—on the successful implementation of vaccination programs. The Global Health Program at the Council on Foreign Relations has been tracking reports by news media, governments, and the global health community on these outbreaks since the fall of 2008. This project aims to promote awareness of a global health problem that is easily preventable, and examine the factors that threaten the success of eradicating preventable illnesses such as polio.

Jerry's Map: Drawing an Imaginary World for 50 Years with the Outcome Determined by a Deck of Cards It’s a video that went undiscovered on Vimeo for years, and a project that’s been evolving for decades… with no clear end in sight. Jerry Gretzinger has an obsession unlike anyone else we’ve heard of: he’s spent almost his entire adult years creating a single never-ending map using hand painted pages and a special deck of cards to determine the outcome for his imaginary populous. It’s an all encompassing personal project that greatly predates modern games like SimCity and Minecraft, and Jerry’s brilliant (some would say obsessed) mind is at the controls.

Rubrics and Rubric Makers As we all know grading is the most necessary procedures of our career. It might just be me, but grading is the bane of my existence. Do you feel the same way? Grading large works, especially towards the end of the school year, feels like it is an endless and mindless process. I remember a few years back when I helped grade over 4,000 essays from a neighboring school district. The only thing I can relate the feeling of completing that grading session was giving birth to my daughter. NOS Special Projects - NOAA Historical Shoreline Survey Viewer What is a Shoreline Survey? Shoreline surveys (also called coastal surveys, T-Sheets or TP-Sheets, and shoreline manuscripts) refer to topographic sheets compiled from maps derived in the field with a plane table, in the office from aerial photos, or a combination of the two methods.

The surveys were used as base maps to construct nautical charts primarily used for navigation. The NOAA Historical Shoreline Survey Viewer
