Assorted links

  1. Personal details of ~200 million US citizens exposed. A 1.1 terabyte data set with names, home addresses, phone numbers, political views etc. This is approx. 2/3 of the american population. Probably the largest data leak in history  thus far 






  2. I've recently found out that the principal scientist at Amazon‘s Modeling and Optimization team is Renato Werneck, a Brazilian researcher who is also one of the authors of Raptor, the Round-Based Public Transit Routing algorithm






  3. In the USA, both Democrats and Republicans agree there is a lot of discrimination against certain social groups. They just disagree which groups are discriminated against


  4. Health Effects of Overweight and Obesity in 195 Countries over 25 Years. Since 1980, obesity rates doubled in more than 70 countries and continuously increased in other countries
