    Worldmapper

    Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized according to the subject of interest. It's a very useful visual tool for comparing countries on factors such as human and social inequality, natural resources and population. Take this example, illustrating the distribution of Child Labour: http://www.worldmapper.org/display.php?selected=135

    There are nearly 700 maps, some are available as PDF posters. Worldmapper also have a series of maps on the visualisation of the world's population using a new mapping technique: Worldmapper Gridded Population Cartograms.

    Peter Bruegel

    Bruegel, Flemish painter from sixteenth century, painted about 60 pictures of mostly peasant life. Big colourful and lively pictures, but what are not so well known are his drawings and engravings.
    I have taken some of them and painted in the colour scheme that I imagine Bruegel might have chosen, in order to make them more accessable.
    His interests in his society were as wide ranging as Shakespeare's.

    Slang lessons

    Claire and I were in a charity shop by the office, buying suits for the next Formal Friday, and overheard the assistants giving the new Japanese assistant lessons in London slang. Here are a few terms, for those who aren't sufficiently 'street' to know them already:

    'peng' = good/hot
    'butters' = bad/ugly (As in "dem beats is butters man")
    'nang' = good
    'sick' = also good
    'sket' = a slut, a sexually promiscuous girl

    Also enjoyed their exchange with their six-year old sister:
    - 6yo: "Why can't I say 'sket'?"
    - Sister: "Um... because it's offensive"

    US elections

    Today I've been trying to get my head around how the US election tonight works.

    Wikipedia is quite helpful: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election

    and I thought this slideshow was very good at explaining things:

    Archaeology and what it means to be "human"

    One of my favourite excuses for escaping from London is to go and help out with courses at the Blackden Trust. The Trust gives school students the opportunity to come and learn about archaeology, history and geography, working with leading academics in these fields and hopefully contributing to the ongoing process of research on this part of Cheshire:
