Japan: the next big quake
The government’s figures put the odds of a magnitude 8.0-plus Nankai Trough earthquake at 50 per cent in the next 20 years, 70 per cent in the next 30 years and 90 per cent in the next half century.

In the worst case of a magnitude 9.0 quake, close to land, Tokyo puts losses at ¥220tn ($2tn) for the first year alone. The amount is hard to imagine: 40 per cent of Japan’s GDP, equal to the market capitalisation of Apple, Microsoft, Berkshire Hathaway, ExxonMobil and Facebook combined. Around three-quarters of that is property damage, most of it privately owned, and the rest is lost economic activity.

The worst fatality rates in Tohoku towns were about 10 per cent, whereas historic records suggest fatality rates of half or two-thirds for unprepared fishing villages after a similar tsunami in 1896. In total, 97 per cent of people in the Tohoku inundation area survived.

That reflects the benefits of engineering, early warning and evacuation.

Branded in Memory
The bite, which is the logo's most iconic feature, was included for scale, so the apple wouldn't be mistaken for a cherry.

Starbucks' current logo, introduced in 2011, is a streamlined version of the two-tailed siren. It no longer features the "Starbucks Coffee" text and is pure green, as opposed to green and black. Despite this simplification, only 6 percent of people drew a near perfect Starbucks logo from memory.

The question at the heart of this experiment is "How accurately can we recall logos we see on a daily basis?" The results show that most people are very good at recalling brand colors – around 80 percent selected the correct palettes for their drawings, while shapes and elements in logos are harder to recall.

There was, however, a difference by age. On average, younger people drew more accurate logos than older people. This was true across almost all brands, but was most noticeable for 7-Eleven, Burger King, and Adidas. Walmart was least affected by age, showing no difference between younger and older groups.

Confidence scaled with accuracy, so while people in general overestimated how well they did, those who did best had the best awareness of their ability.

The ‘time machine’ reconstructing ancient Venice’s social networks
Venice is the perfect city for the experiment because of its wealth of historically important, well-ordered documentation. It was founded in the fifth century AD by citizens of the Roman empire escaping barbarian invaders from the north. Its inhospitable lagoons provided much-needed protection, and its location at the north end of the Adriatic Sea also had strategic advantages. It soon became the most important trading post between Western Europe and the east, bringing it riches and power.

L’entre-soi social confirmé par le big data

Un de ses confrères, Loïc Wacquant, professeur à l’université de Californie, est moins enthousiaste : « Cet article retrouve des ­résultats élémentaires des études de stratification : le capital (économique et culturel) va au capital. Il ne faut pas se laisser aspirer par ­l’effet de mode du big data. Ce n’est pas parce qu’on établit des corrélations statistiques sur des millions d’individus qu’on a découvert quelque chose. »

Friends and foes: rifts in the Middle East
Islamic State has no friends. But it has upended geopolitics in the Middle East and drawn America’s armed forces back to the region. Our “relationship mosaic” below summarises the friendships and enmities among countries, political groups and militant organisations in the Middle East. It provides a quick, simplified glimpse (the “neutral” category, for instance, embraces a large number of possibilities). Syria’s official al-Qaeda affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra, is almost as isolated as IS: neither was invited to a conference of Syrian opposition groups convened this month by Saudi Arabia. The Syrian government is disliked by many countries, but supported by Iran and Russia. Russia’s relationship with Turkey deteriorated sharply after the Turks’ shooting-down of a Russian warplane in November. The Iraqi Kurds count numerous friends and no sworn enemies. America must play a delicate diplomatic game in holding together unlikely allies.

80后大学老师创全国高铁图走红 如地铁图般清晰(图)


陶岸君说,大家反响好正说明我们需要这么一张图,现在国家的高铁在技术上、建设上都进步很快,达到世界先进水平,但服务细节上还有改善空间,线路图就是其中之一。陶岸君希望,自己不仅是把高铁图画得像地铁图、更能以此为契机改变点什么,让大家坐高铁出行能更方便,如果国家铁路部门制作一个官方的线路图或者APP那就更好了。如果铁路部门有需要,他愿意把这些图供官方使用,方便更多人乘火车。孙文文

Animated interactive of the history of the Atlantic slave trade.
Of the more than 10 million enslaved Africans to eventually reach the Western Hemisphere, just 388,747—less than 4 percent of the total—came to North America. This was dwarfed by the 1.3 million brought to Spanish Central America, the 4 million brought to British, French, Dutch, and Danish holdings in the Caribbean, and the 4.8 million brought to Brazil.

Housing: Why grumble? | The Economist
Second, regardless of city size, housing has become more affordable over the past four years throughout China. At the peak, in April 2010, house prices on average were nearly 12 times household incomes; that has dropped to less than nine times today. Prices are higher than in many developing countries, but they are not wildly divergent.

So much to do, so little time | The Economist
Yet there is also a much more positive side to the country. It is the world’s fifth-biggest economy and sixth-biggest exporter. In the first half of 2012 it was the fourth-biggest recipient of foreign direct investment. It has more big multinational companies in the global Fortune 500 than Britain. The French are especially strong in top-end goods and services: luxury goods, food processing, pharmaceuticals, fashion. The infrastructure, especially in transport and energy, is second to none. Although many universities are mediocre, the grandes écoles, such as the Polytechnique and the HEC business school, are world class. The health system is widely admired. And unlike most other European countries France has a relatively favourable demographic outlook, with a birth rate just above replacement level.

“石头、剪子、布”的获胜秘诀
信息图表明,“布"是3个手势中出现率最低的,仅仅占29.6%。”石头“以35.4%排名第一。剪子则以35%位列第二。
男性往往倾向于在第一回合出石头,因此,和他们交手的时候尽情的出布吧!猜拳老手则往往会选择出布,所以,亮剪刀吧,少年!而菜鸟玩家一般会出上一局获胜的手势。所以,出手前认真观察吧!

理性爱国第一步:搞懂什么是日货
狭义的日货可分为四大类:

1、在日本本土生产的产品。任何在日本本土生产的产品,包括其他国家品牌,都可被称为日货。例如美国公司在日本本土生产的美国品牌产品,也可被列入“日货”范畴。其重要标志是包装上有“日本制造”字样。

2、日资企业生产的产品。纯日资或包含日资的合资企业产品。普通消费者很难弄清哪些产品是日资,可以不夸张的说,随着中国与国际商贸日益密切,日资渗透到我们生活每一处。大家熟悉的淘宝、人人网都获得过日资投资。

3、日本品牌产品。传统日本品牌产品,如丰田、本田、资生堂、西铁城、卡西欧、佳能、索尼等。

4、日本文化产品。如蜡笔小新、灌篮高手、七龙珠、美少女战士、名侦探柯南都是日系文化产品。

广义的日货,至少分为两大类:

1、包含日本原件和原材料的一切产品。市场上大部分电视机、电冰箱、洗衣机、飞机、火车、汽车、照相机等等,无论是日本品牌或是中国品牌,基本都包含来自日企的零配件或原材料。

2、和日本有生意往来的企业的一切产品。这可能算是捅了马蜂窝,当今世界各国经贸关系如此密切,和日本人直接间接做生意的企业太多太多。

Americans are exchanging ever more words
print's share of our communication with each other has not been squeezed as dramatically by the rise of the internet as some might think. Radio, on the other hand, has undergone a clear sharp decline. Television, too, accounts for a declining share of American media consumption.

Un panier de la ménagère qui coûte cher en carbone
Vous êtes plutôt viande ou poisson? Légumes ou céréales? Jus de fruits ou alcool? Des choix qui sont loin d'être indifférents pour celui qui se soucie de ses émissions de CO2. Les légumes sont le parfait exemple inverse. Les fruits et légumes représentent ainsi 20 % du poids du panier, 14 % des dépenses et seulement 7 % du contenu carbone. La viande est à ce titre très emblématique. Elle ne représente que 8 % du poids moyen du panier, 23 % de son coût mais près du tiers de son contenu en carbone. http://www.instapaper.com/read/271963333
