How do you feel about Last Week Tonight?

I recently came across an article in which they map 5,000 years of city growth in a beautiful animation, and I knew I had to make a similar map for the R-Ladies’ chapters (probably the purple color they use had plenty to do with that 💜 ). So my idea was to map all the R-Ladies’ chapters according to...

4 months ago I handed my notice in one of the boldest moves in my entire career. Not that I visualized myself as a get-a-job-for-the-rest-of-your-life kind of girl (at all), but I’ve always been very cautious, thinking a couple of moves ahead. About...

Using Rpart to figure out who voted for Trump
