Did anyone know that Google use to track outbreaks with Google Flu that the CDC used to use when tracking disease spread. Using peoples locations and search parameters for looking up symptoms, it was said they could predict where the flu would jump with 97% accuracy according to Google and about half that by other sources. Of course Google being concerned about your privacy stopped the service in 2009. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Flu_Trends It was replaced by this much harder to read resource.

Having trouble rebuilding your world? Pop over to Alex Weir 3rd World Development server in Zimbabwe for 800 MB's of information on everything about building back up from nothing. Looks like the whole site is in HTML, so even though they suggest you print it, I would like to meet the man who could get them all to print correctly. I'm not sure about the fear of PDF but they are a lot easier to read and print. There is a lot of good stuff here,

Worried about drought, check out the Climate Hazards Group from UC Santa Barbara who are using satellite data to predict droughts with uncanny accuracy. I'm not sure how accurate that is since they are predicting out to 3105 for some countries.

Info about the SPIN small plot intensive farming model used by Canadian farmers with less than one acre.
