The floridaverve.org blog is a Florida cultural and heritage blog site as part of The James Madison Institute.

As part of my senior journalism program Capstone course, I investigated and reported on education topics in Bradford County, Florida. In my research I came across a teen parenting program where Bradford County educators may have discovered a way to counteract the high dropout rate of teen parents in the area. The full video and supplemental written story published on the WUFT-FM website can be found here.

Top Twitter User Charities

As part of experimentation with data visualization using Adobe InDesign, I created this interactive graphic showing the charities supported by the 2o top most followed users on Twitter (last updated Dec. 5, 2011 at 5:13 p.m.). When each name is clicked, the charities that Twitter user supports will darken. Unfortunately, since the file is too large, it cannot be seen on this website, but you can see the before and after image when”Justin Beiber’s” name is clicked.
