Very cool (re)visualisation of Arctic sea ice data that makes it much easier to see what's going on.

> Why is it desirable to 'rescue' diagrams in cartesian coordinates in the age of big data? They're much easier to read than tables, so they're perfect for the experimenter during measurements of any kind. And they are the perfect basis for discussion among scientists: when you get lost in words and arguments you can always come back to the diagram. They're familiar to all prac­ti­tio­ners of natural sciences, which allows easy communication across disparate fields. And, lastly, they are perfect for expressing mathematical relations without resorting to arithmetic with heaps of formulas (something many biologists prefer ).

SNAP kills people? Really?

> Individuals who were eligible for SNAP based on income levels but did not participate, had significantly less increased risk in comparison: around one-and-a-half times the risk for all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, and under twice the risk for diabetes-related mortality, compared to SNAP-ineligible individuals.
