NASA Finds 2011 is Ninth-Warmest Year on Record

While average global temperature will still fluctuate from year to year, scientists focus on the decadal trend.
Nine of the 10 warmest years since 1880 have occurred since the year 2000, as the Earth has experienced sustained higher temperatures than in any decade during the 20th century. As greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric carbon dioxide levels continue to rise, scientists expect the long-term temperature increase to continue as well.

Blah blah blah, Al Gore is fat and there’s been a cooling ‘trend’ and yada yada yada. Go Newt Go!

It’s been a long season for the Nets and the season is a mere six games old. Shelden Williams and company are 1-5, the second-worst record in the NBA (Washington is 0-5). The Nets play the Celtics on Wednesday. (Washington is 0-5). (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)

Submission: NYC Restaurant Density by Cuisine Type

nycopendata:

Check out these these maps created by dfkoz using the NYC OpenData “Restaurant Inspection Results” dataset:

To cap off a recent series of posts on New York restaurants (see What’s the Safest Food in New York City? and Heatmap of Restaurants in New York City), I put together heatmaps of restaurant density by cuisine type.

Only one comment before we get started: I have no idea how the DOHMH categorizes restaurants. There are, for example, categories for Chinese, Japanese, Chinese/Japanese, and Asian. With that said, here we go:

American

Asian

Bakery

Caribbean

Chicken

Chinese

Deli

Hamburgers

Indian

Italian

Japanese

Jewish/Kosher

Korean

Latin

Mexican

Pizza

Spanish

Thai

Once again, some thanks are in order. Restaurant addresses and cuisines came from NYC OpenData’s Restaurant Inspection Results. Geocoding the raw addresses was done with Excel/VBA (don’t judge) and Yahoo! PlaceFinder. The heatmaps were generated with the Google Maps API and a JS heatmap library from Patrick Wied.

That’s it for restaurants. For the next few posts, I’m going to turn to a different data set altogether. Suggestions welcome.

It is now Sunday afternoon on the U.S.S. John C. Stennis in the North Arabian Sea, and for the first time in many days I have managed to log onto this site. I have not opened my work email in nearly a week, so for those of you who have sent messages to chivers@nytimes.com, please forgive the…

My first meal in San Francisco (ever, ever EVER!) was at Delarosa. The trendy yet casual restaurant in the Marina neighborhood was packed on a Saturday nite, but the hour long wait let us discover a very charming wine bar/store a few doors down.

The meal was delicious, and even with a glass of wine it clocked in under $40. There were so many great sounding dishes on the menu (chicken sausage, red grapes, and mustard!!) that I can’t wait to return and order a completely different dinner.

Mozzarella with garden veggies, Roman-style mushroom-fontina-thyme pizza, and the star, house-made donuts with a trio of dipping sauces (chocolate, raspberry andmascarpone cream).

Thousands of women massed in Tahrir Square here on Tuesday afternoon and marched to a journalists’ syndicate and back in a demonstration that grew by the minute into an extraordinary expression of anger at the treatment of women by the military police as they protested against continued military rule.
