Saw this post on Wall St web property. Interesting reading. Here are the top states in their "Happiness" poll. The top five states listed in the descending order of happiness are:
Each state is also ranked in five other categories. These are
Well-being index score
Median household income
Adult population with high school diploma or higher
The thing that I saw is that the top five states are either top or second-best in one or more of the 5 categories. So, Hawaii has the highest life expectancy, Colorado has the lowest obesity, Minnesota is second-best in two categories-Life expectancy and Adult population with high school diploma or higher and Vermont displayed the highest rate of healthy behavior and life style. The odd man out in the list is Utah. It does not rate in the top five in any of the categories. Strange. So, looking some more it turns out that it does top a category. The category is -- highest birth rate in the country. So, want to be happy either do really well on one of the categories or have more babies. Problem solved.
In the just concluded Wimbledon Tennis Tournament IBM showcased some cool technology. IBM SlamTracker™ - a real time statistics and data visualization platform that leverages IBM's predictive analytics technology. It provides an ‘at a glance’ visual representation of a match using scores and statistics and encourages fans to get more involved by interacting with the data to gain deeper insight into the game. IBM SlamTracker™ analyses over eight years of Grand Slam data (over 41 million data points), to identify patterns in players and their styles. Before each match, IBM analyses historical matches between the players (or between players of similar styles if the players in question have not met before). In the last couple of years IBM did trial runs of SecondSight , which for the first time enabled the viewer to track the direction, speed and distance of players as they moved about the court. Data from SecondSight enables displays such as one below. Hopefully
Following is a great resource for any one considering different choices for their "NoSQL" style frame work. As always, "one-size-fits-all" approach does * not * work for NoSQL frameworks. Just as a side note that MongoDB, Cassandra and CouchDB are the top three skills sought out on indeed.com (popular aggregator of job boards) of all the databases in the table below. Having a large pool of talent is always a good thing for your technology choice.
