thoughts map -
is going to be perusen's most innovative project, in which we focus how we present the connectedness of titles on a interactive map. we are planning to make a graph using the see's and hidden see's that connect the titles.

when the map is zoomed out, we will see categories, and as we zoom in we will have more specific subcategories, and regions of titles and see how they are connected to each other. the fully zoomed in version shows the titles and nearby related titles.

the total number of posts under every title and the up votes and down votes will be integrated in the algorithm. there will be a default repulsion force between titles, and some attraction force which comes from the connectedness of titles.

the idea is going to be very similar to the one in paperscape, where you can see all scientific articles showed on a very cool map.

chocolate cake - perusen.comperusers' confessions -
i see dead people.

seriously, once in every week i get sleep paralysis and see people die in my nightmares. funnily at the end of nightmare i try to get awake and crawl out of my bed and i succeed it, then i realize my attempts were merely part of the nightmare. i try again and again. it is kind of scary that you see yourself get up, walk through the hallway to kitchen to drink a glass of water for relief and at the end it turns out to be imagination.

gun control -
harvard school of public health mentions about several studies conducted by distinguished academics about the guns and homicide rates both within and outside the united states. some of the articles, their summaries and the journals they were published in are:

1. where there are more guns there is more homicide (literature review).
our review of the academic literature found that a broad array of evidence indicates that gun availability is a risk factor for homicide, both in the united states and across high-income countries. case-control studies, ecological time-series and cross-sectional studies indicate that in homes, cities, states and regions in the us, where there are more guns, both men and women are at higher risk for homicide, particularly firearm homicide.

hepburn, lisa; hemenway, david. firearm availability and homicide: a review of the literature. aggression and violent behavior: a review journal. 2004; 9:417-40.

2. across high-income nations, more guns = more homicide.
we analyzed the relationship between homicide and gun availability using data from 26 developed countries from the early 1990s. we found that across developed countries, where guns are more available, there are more homicides. these results often hold even when the united states is excluded.

hemenway, david; miller, matthew. firearm availability and homicide rates across 26 high income countries. journal of trauma. 2000; 49:985-88.

3. across states, more guns = more homicide
using a validated proxy for firearm ownership, we analyzed the relationship between firearm availability and homicide across 50 states over a ten year period (1988-1997). after controlling for poverty and urbanization, for every age group, people in states with many guns have elevated rates of homicide, particularly firearm homicide.

4. across states, more guns = more homicide (2)
using survey data on rates of household gun ownership, we examined the association between gun availability and homicide across states, 2001-2003. we found that states with higher levels of household gun ownership had higher rates of firearm homicide and overall homicide. this relationship held for both genders and all age groups, after accounting for rates of aggravated assault, robbery, unemployment, urbanization, alcohol consumption, and resource deprivation (e.g., poverty). there was no association between gun prevalence and non-firearm homicide.
