Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Funny thing. I usually work sixteen hours a day in a week from 07: 30 am cet when WSE opens to 03:00 pm et, until US markets close, plus I usually watch fast money on CnbCircus (kudos to the team). In that period of time I’m not only focusing on the markets (trading) but I also read tones of articles ranging from NYT, Barrons, WSJ to Huffington Post as well others. Sometimes I feel like google bot! However after so many years I got used to it! Never the less I can say one thing: Journalism as it once was is long DEAD! That’s why everybody relays more and more on blogs and other non-mainstream media! If you want to read something interesting, stimulating, fascinating, spot on … do not count on corporate media! Sad but true!
    Regarding visualization? Very cool stuff! A look at the same topic from different perspective.
