Good Morning Mission!

It’s Friday! Friday! Friday…7 a.m. and about 55°. Temperatures to rise to 66°. Details for the next 10 days are here.

Has everyone seen the The New York Times mesmerizing graphic about job loss and gain post recession? Not surprisingly, on the rise, tech jobs; on the decline, manufacturing. Surprisingly, there’s been an uptick of jobs related to personal grooming.

Speaking of graphs and numbers, the statistic freaks at Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight blog have decided to use statistical analysis, stringent methodology, and March Madness style bracketology to find the best burrito in America. The Mission’s very own El Farolito is the number one seeded spot on their burrito bracket.

Online daters beware. One man headed to meet a woman he’d met on an online dating site, only to be held up by two men with guns. The Examiner has the details.

MissionMission has spotted the latest trend in local music: anti-gentrification rock and techie anthems. I’ve always been a fan of Persia and Daddy’s Plastik’s take on the genre, the queer dance track “Google Google Apps Apps” (Mostly NSFW).

Enjoy the day everyone!

    Mesmerizing or just baffling?

    What would have been more interesting is an analysis of whether this five year period is atypical or not.

    It seems to me that many of the themes identified here, like a migration of jobs from manufacturing to knowledge and service work, have been happening for decades. And, moreover, are typical of a nation developing from lower-value manual work to higher-value cerebral work.

    “Designed in the USA’ assembled in China” is a good thing. Retain the clever work; outsource the grunt.
