‘Stop-and-Frisk’ Is All but Gone From New York The widespread practice of stopping residents for what was deemed “suspicious” behavior, often called “stop-and-frisk,” was the defining tactic of the New York Police Department for a decade, pursued in the face of intensifying protests and dwindling crime, defended against civil-rights challenges, even declared indispensable to the continued safety of the streets. It has now all but vanished. Stops by Week January 2012 Stops peak with more than 16,000 per week. August 2013 A judge rules rules the tactic as employed is unconstitutional. Late 2013 Stops drop by more than 90% to fewer than 2,000 per week. It faded out at the end of the mayoral administration that promoted it so enthusiastically and the beginning of the administration that rode a wave of anger over it to a landslide victory.

Gapminder: Unveiling the beauty of statistics for a fact based world view. 22 free tools for data visualization and analysis You may not think you've got much in common with an investigative journalist or an academic medical researcher. But if you're trying to extract useful information from an ever-increasing inflow of data, you'll likely find visualization useful -- whether it's to show patterns or trends with graphics instead of mountains of text, or to try to explain complex issues to a nontechnical audience. There are many tools around to help turn data into graphics, but they can carry hefty price tags. The cost can make sense for professionals whose primary job is to find meaning in mountains of information, but you might not be able to justify such an expense if you or your users only need a graphics application from time to time, or if your budget for new tools is somewhat limited. If one of the higher-priced options is out of your reach, there are a surprising number of highly robust tools for data visualization and analysis that are available at no charge.
