When it comes to median income levels, Milwuakee has yet to recover from the Great Recession. In fact, the falling income trend seems to be worsening. Median incomes are down roughly $4,500 since 2009 and $1,500 since 2012.

Across the nation, income rise hints at recovery
Although incomes are still lower than five years ago, most large metropolitan areas showed at least a tiny gain last year. The patterns suggest that while many regional economies may have turned a corner on the recession, incomes are making a slow advance toward 2009 levels. These charts show data for median household incomes released on Thursday by the Census Bureau in its American Community Survey.

Simple things catch your breath. While pondering whether my next late night project will be a shipwreck map of the Great Lakes – I loaded this shapefile of water depths.
Beautiful.

[T]here is no such thing as a neutral tool. No algorithm focused on human behavior is neutral. Anything which is trained on historical human behavior embeds and codifies historical and cultural practices.

Autumn in Wisconsin and Michigan
Within just a few days the trees surrounding Lake Superior and Lake Michigan have gone from a deep green to a vibrant orange as autumn steals across the region. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor on NASA’s Terra satellite captured these peak fall colors around the Great Lakes on October 10, 2003, shown in the top true-color image. There are few signs of the impending change in the bottom MODIS image, taken just four days earlier by the Aqua satellite.
The high-resolution image provided above shows the autumn colors at MODIS’ maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters per pixel.
