Zines / Color
Zines are "do-it-yourself" print magazines that are self-published and usually low circulation. They are a popular medium for subcultures outside of the mainstream and thus hard to track. As a former zine maker myself (I used to do one as a teenager), I was curious how many kinds of zines are actually out there. Barnard College has a library of zines and has broken them down into 15 genres.

Places to Live / Value
WalletHub drew upon the various findings of positive-psychology research in order to determine which among more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities is home to the happiest people in America. I looked at the top 5 Cities and how the ranking differs upon the community & environment versus income and employment.


Zines / Texture
According to the Flavorwire, there were an estimated 40,000 zines being published in 1993 in North America. I found this number interesting in comparison to the largest amount of magazines ever circulated in the U.S. was 7,390 in 2012.
