China as Trade Leviathan

NFL Playoff Paths
The New York Times‘s The Upshot visualized all the remaining paths for the National Football League (NFL) teams to qualify for the playoff race, in the form of tree branches. Look exactly what outcomes are possible along with chance percentages. Ties were not considered because they are too rare and would significantly overcomplicate the graphics.
Food Categorization: Sandwich, Salad, or Soup
Aiming to solve the uncertainty about whether a food is a sandwich, or a salad, or a soup, the Soup-Salad-Sandwich Space project plots various eats on an interactive 3D chart. Explore the visualization — it’s an interesting attempt of food categorization.
