    1. A New York Times article uses the same temperature dataset you have been using to investigate the distribution of temperatures and temperature variability over time. Read through the article, paying close attention to the descriptions of the temperature distributions.

      Unfortunately, like most NYT content, this article is behind a paywall. I'm partly reading this as I plan to develop a set of open education resources myself and the problem of how to manage dead/unavailable links looks like a key stumbling block.

    1. From 1926 until the early 1950s, US military aircraft relied on a "one size fits all" design based on average measurements of hundreds of male pilots.

      But a 1950 study by Lt. Gilbert Daniels showed that out of 4,063 airmen, not even one was average in all ten measurements. They started designing cockpits and controls to be adjustable. Accidents decreased, and pilot performance increased.

      Standardized education makes the same mistake.
