DQYDJ: surprising our readers with yet another week where we submit articles to a carnival! Maybe we’ll keep it going this time.
- Thanks to Jason Shafrin at the Healthcare Economist for featuring our post “Dr. S&P or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying About the Credit Rating Downgrade” in the 137th Edition of the Cavalcade of Risk.
- On a side note, I just found his site in the process of submitting to this carnival, and it is a good one for health care reading – and we know some of you out there love our own health care articles. Interest you? Go subscribe.
- We feel this is a good time to point this out: there were a few updates over the weekend. Due to the popularity of our interactive features, we have made a separate page for Calculators and Visualizations. We also highlighted our Economic Concepts with another page – which happen to be our top search engine entries.
- We’ve also updated our comment engine to Disqus, allowing nerdy features like live updating, threaded comments, and other great social features. Maybe we’ll increase our commenting average from .7 an article?
- Expect more subtle and potentially larger updates to roll out over the next weeks.
- “Social Media and Worker’s Comp” – If you are committing worker’s comp fraud, don’t brag about it on Facebook!
- “Lloyd’s Could Lose $15 Million from Tour Cancellation” – Interesting stuff. How much does it add to the insurance premium for a band’s tours when they add the potential for alcohol or drugs causing show cancellation to their policy?
- “Athletes are Not Overpaid. Get Over It.” – We loved this article. We might be biased. Read it and find out.
- “The Stock Market Noise Event of 2011” – we featured it in our most recent article, but here’s an article to calm your investing nerves.
- “A Downgrade Awakening” – We loved the quote that starts this article: “During yesterday’s market meltdown, an old friend shot us an email: ‘The Obama adm needs to stop trying to disarm the fire alarm and start trying to put the fire out.’ ” Yesterday we took something out of the oven without using the vent fan on and did something similar.
