Links: November 29 2011

A4J is managing to squeeze in one more posting before the end of November… just made it. Enjoy another curious smattering of information and/or randomness.

How the drop in violent crime may have been spurred by lower cocaine prices (sounds like a job for Freakonomics): http://www.theatlanticcities.com/jobs-and-economy/2011/11/cocaine-plummeting-price-nationwide-drop-violent-crime/474/

The president, as a piñata (I did this partially to use the ñ feature on my MacBook): http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/27/opinion/sunday/Kristof-President-As-Pinata.html?_r=1

Double science news! A lab in Pennsylvania that may have randomly stumbled upon a cure for cancer: http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2011/11/lab_at_hershey_medical_center.html and in the war against AIDS: http://medicalxpress.com/news/2011-11-year-war-aids-sight.html

We’ve talked about this (or perhaps it was Japanese love pillows) – but this analyzes the high rates of Japanese youths opting to stay single: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-15915118

Pic of the day… what a helicopter’s path looks like at night (long exposure lens): http://i.imgur.com/ckun6.jpg
