States With Most and Least Stress

States With Most and Least Stress | Innovation, Technology | Scoop.it

"For the past five years, Hawaii has consistently ranked as the least stressed state, while West Virginia, Kentucky, and Utah have been among the most stressed states. Despite this, Utah residents join Hawaii residents in reporting among the highest levels of enjoyment in the U.S., while West Virginia and Kentucky residents report some of the lowest levels of enjoyment.  While the relationship between stress and enjoyment is not clear, states with the highest stress levels tend to report less daily enjoyment."

I can guess what Hawaii is the least stressed. Where does your state rank and why?

In addition to being the state with the least joy, Rhode Island is ranked as the 2nd most stressed out state.  I think that means it's time to to get out of the Ocean State for a while. 


Questions to Ponder: what are some factors that may account for this regional variation?  What explains your states relative levels of stress and enjoyment?   

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 17, 2013 4:12 PM

Woohoo!! Most stressful state. This is no surprise with Rhode Island only being behind Neveda for highest unemploment. Also the poor quality can easily make up that .9% which put us in the lead. This article also goes to show that if you live in a beautiful place your more likely to have a higher enjoyment the concrete jungles.

Mark Hathaway's curator insight, September 15, 2015 8:28 AM

Rhode Islands are stressed out and unhappy. I think the findings in this survey by Gallup will surprise  no one in this state. The Great Recession of 2008 hit our state hard. Throughout the crises our state had some of the highest levels of unemployment in the nation. The recovery from the recession has been particularly slow in Rhode Island. Our utter lack of industry and high tax structure does not help matters. Hawaii being the less stressed state is also of little surprise to most people. Hawaii is as close to paradise on earth as man is likely to achieve. Three of the bottom five states in the category of daily enjoyment, are in the Northeastern portion of the nation. Life in the Northeast is full of headaches. The weather is often nasty. The economic development is often stalled. I do not find it surprising, that the Northeast is near the bottom of the enjoyment portion of the survey.

Facebook Search Will Be Better than Google - Advertising Age

Facebook Search Will Be Better than Google - Advertising Age | Innovation, Technology | Scoop.it

Will Facebook's search engine be better than Google's anytime soon?

 

On the whole, no way.

 

Then is Facebook spending mega dollars to develop an algorithm that needs constant upgrading – one that will almost certainly be inferior to the search engines we already have – all for naught?

 

Here's the thing: a Facebook search product doesn't need to be better.

Or, more accurately, it doesn't need to be better all the time.

 

If a Facebook search returns a better result once in twenty searches, it will be a success.
