In what amounts to a nice step forward for public safety, it looks like the National Weather Service is engaging online advertising networks to insert banner ads warning of severe weather, based on a reader’s location. Earlier today while checking on my hockey blog, On The Forecheck, I noticed the banner ad you see to [...]
So I just finished reading Nate Silver’s The Signal and the Noise, and I have to say it’s one of the more thought-provoking non-fiction reads I’ve enjoyed in quite a while, offering insights which I intend to integrate into my hockey writing more often.
