Why I am not worried about Japan’s nuclear reactors. | Morgsatlarge – blogorific.

The news has been full of scary, illiterate, and politicized reports regarding the nuclear reactors in Japan. This post by a nuclear engineer (and the commentary / discussion that accompany it) was a welcome antidote. The post itself contains some speculation and has it’s own self-evident pro-nuclear bias, but it’s like nourishing food for your brain. Gives you something to grow and work with.

President Obama’s 1/25/2011 state of the union speech in three words, according to the recollections of NPR listeners:

These were the three most prominent words NPR listeners remembered, so the result is quite different than we’d get from an analysis of the text of the actual speech.

See the NPR article for variations according to the political orientation of listeners.

You can make your own word cloud from some text or a webpage using the same software as NPR: Wordle
