It could be fun & interesting to see a similar infographic for the American territories and Washington DC
Unfortunately, gang activity is on the rise in rural and suburban areas in Illinois. The statistic for that likely comes from the 2009 National Gang Threat Assessment compiled by the National Gang Intelligence Center and the National Drug Intelligence Center.
I agree with L.! The best NY can offer is NYC? Don't get me wrong, the city itself has lots to offer but the state as a whole....ever heard of the Adirondacks? It's the largest park in the lower 48. Larger than several of the most popular National Parks combined.
Right? I live in Rochester, NY-right on the Great Lake Ontario, one of five Great Lakes that consist of the world's largest source of fresh water. NYS also is largely agricultural; NYC can thank the rest of us for the feeding them, and the rest of us in NYC can thank Wall St. for tanking the state's economy, as it is/was 40% of the states tax revenue. /Sigh.
Come on, man. Stop lumping all of New York with NYC. There's more to the state than that, you know. :(
Really don't understand the smile and frown icons next to each states attributes..... why does Oregon having the most "gay curious people" constitute a bad energy policy?.... among others on the graphic. just sayinnn
The two things aren't related at all...it is a quirky infographic with a bit of a factoid and an icon about their energy policy.
There is a typo for Arizona. Should be 'lead' not 'leas'
Few to no states are ranked in having a 'good energy policy'. That's quite unfortunate, especially for the states that boast themselves as having good initiatives or ideas for such.
Actually, there are 180 species of fresh-water mussels in Alabama. Half of them are threatened, endangered, or of special concern.
You missed DC! :(
Actually, there was an investigation into how much gold is at Ft. Knox in KY. There is no longer that much (or any at all) in the vaults of Ft. Knox. Scary. I'd rather be known for our tobacco farming or redneck hillbillies which are more true than the amount of gold in the vaults.
Doesn't Illinois also have the most ex-governors in prison?
