Map: Where are the Journal News employees in your neighborhood?

By Robert Cox on Wed, 12/26/2012 – 17:39

The map indicates the addresses of all Journal News Employees in the New York Tri-State area. Each dot represents an individual Journal News employee — a reporter, editor or staffer. The data does not include freelancers — reporters or photographers — which can be hired without being an employee. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location is a responsible reporter or editor, just that they are a reporter or editor.

Data for all categories is included, but certain information is not available on an individual basis.

To create the map, Talk of the Sound submitted Google searches for the names and addresses of all Journal News employees in the New York Tri-State area. By state law, the information is public record.

Readers are still putting together records and could not immediately provide some data. The map will be updated when that data is released.




Google Conspiracy, or Happenstance?

The dictionary defines “conspiracy” as “an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot.”

Glenn Beck has this on his website today (June 21, 2011) on a “(not so) craaaaaazy Google conspiracy”:

Google has that great auto fill system where if you start typing something it starts to make suggestions. It can be a great time saver – seriously. But it seems odd that when you type “how much does” that the first suggestion on the list completes your search with “does an abortion cost”. Are there really so many people googling “How much does an abortion cost” that it sends it to the top – or is there some kind of agenda going on? No one on the radio was entirely sure, but it did seem suspicious. Don’t believe us? Try it yourself!

I took him up on his injunction and tried it myself.

I typed the words “How much does” in the Google search box. When I typed the last word “does,” instantly this “Suggestions” drop menu appeared below the search box:

  • How much does an abortion cost
  • How much does it cost to build a house
  • How much does a gallon of water weight
  • How much does it cost to mail a letter
  • How much does a passport cost
  • How much does plan b cost
  • How much does it cost to paint a car
  • How much does the president make
  • How much does minecraft cost

As you can see, at the top of Google’s “suggestions” is “How much does an abortion cost.”

Go ahead and try it yourself!
