Data => Stories

21 Aug 2014

1st among all causes of death in girls 13-15 in the world is suicide. What can we do? When you get time, watch this excellent 1 hr YouTube. Dr. Hans Rosling: Facts and Fiction on Global Health NMD 2014

I miss Rosling's presence on the planet. He managed to make data relatable to non-math people like me. I wish I had his skill with translating data into a story. As I write this I'm headed into a long period of literary research that I believe has the potential to save children's lives. I worry about being able to adequately relay the information to other non-math people. Lucky for me I have a son who is a storyteller and filmmaker who is helping me with that aspect.
