the 10 worst jobs in america right now / boing boing


not all careers are created equal. take journalism, for example. high stress, low growth, very low pay. why would anyone choose this field? (you're asking the wrong person.) according to careercast, who ranked the 200 most common jobs in america, journalism is a pretty crummy field to be in this year (as in, last place on the list). careercast used metrics such as "growth outlook, income, environmental conditions and stress" as their basis in creating this list. here is the methodology they used. and now (...drumroll...), here are the 10 worst jobs of 2017: 1. newspaper reporter (median salary: $37,820) 2. broadcaster (median salary: $38,870) 3. logger (median salary: $37,590) 4. enlisted military personnel (median salary: $27,936) 5. pest control worker (median salary: $33,040) 6. disc jo






2017 fantasy baseball: center field pecota projections j-y


a lot of platforms treat all outfielders the same. at first blush, center fielders would seem to be the cream of the crop based on their overall reputations. a lot of that comes from defensive value. obviously, that has nothing to do with fantasy baseball. we will reveal the medians for all three outfield positions even though we are only directly comparing center fielders with the median center fielders. some of you will want to see how they compare with the whole outfield universe.instead of ranking the players 1-24, we are comparing each player to the median. the median is defined as the average between the 12th and 13th ranked player in that particular category. players that meet or exceed the median will be labeled in green font. players that don’t meet the median will be labeled in r






2017 fantasy baseball: center field pecota projections a-i


“put me in coach, i’m ready to play today. look at me i can be center field.” — john fogertyit would be an interesting battle between shortstop and center field as to which is the premier position on the diamond. suffice it to say, the superior athletes are playing one position or the other. it would make sense that the center fielders on our list would put up better numbers collectively than their corner outfield counterparts. however, as we will see with the median numbers we will see that this isn’t necessarily the case.instead of ranking players 1-24, we are comparing each with the median at the position. the median is defined as the average between the 12th and 13th ranked center fielder at the position. we will also show the left field and right field median scores in case you want t






2017 fantasy baseball: left field pecota projections h-w


left field is a deep position in fantasy baseball. the median certainly indicates that across the board, but the number of players that approach the median on the downside is another really good indication. that depth can help you on draft day. you can punt the position and plug in holes elsewhere or you can make sure the player you pick exceeds the median by a considerable margin. comparing to the median is more compelling than simple rankings. rankings don’t tell us the distance between one player and the next.players that meet or exceed the median (the average between the 12th and 13th ranked left fielder) will see their numbers turn green. players that fail to reach the median will see their numbers turn red. additionally, we will compare each player with their three year average when

2017 fantasy baseball: nl starting pitcher pecota projections a-m


most fantasy players play in mixed leagues. the occasional hardcore fan will play in an al or nl only league, but those are becoming fewer and further between. yet, the question is always raised about why we would separate nl and al pitchers in our profile. the answer is really quite simple: the median nl pitcher will usually be a little better than the median al pitcher. facing pitchers and pinch hitters in the batting order is better than facing a designated hitter. of course, the gap is not what it used to be.we are comparing nl pitchers with the median at the position. we took every pitcher projected to pitch 100 or more innings and put them on a spreadsheet. we then took the median of each of the four major categories for starters (wins, era, whip, strikeouts) and threw in innings as






2017 fantasy baseball: third base pecota rankings a-l


third base is the deepest position going in fantasy baseball. that is reflected in the median statistics we will see in a moment, but there is also more star power than at any other position. that will definitely affect how you approach draft day. keep in mind, when looking at how players compare to the median, it is not only important to see if they beat the median, but by how much the beat the median. third base features the reigning nl mvp winner and the 2015 al mvp winner. that’s some serious star power.we are comparing players with the median of each category instead of doing straight rankings. for one, we already ranked these players. we will compare the pecota projection with the three year average when appropriate. that alone will give us some clue about rankings, but we want to sh






2017 fantasy baseball: left field pecota projections a-g


outfield projections can be challenging. some platforms treat them all the same while others separate them by position. we will treat left fielders as left fielders, but we will include all three medians just in case you want to cross-reference the player with the other outfield positions. some players are eligible at multiple outfield slots. we can wax on about the complexities, but we should probably move on and treat them like every other position we have covered.instead of ranking each player 1-24, we will be comparing each player to the median. the median is defined as the average between the 12th and 13th ranked player in each individual category. players that meet or exceed the median will have the numbers in green font. players that do not meet the median will have numbers in red f






2017 fantasy baseball: shortstop pecota projections l-t


shortstop is a position that has a lot of good, young players. when that happens at a position you get a lot of uncertainty as to where the position is going to go. the law of averages indicates that some will make it and some won’t. even in that situation, the position is going to be one of the deepest on the diamond. yes, they don’t have the power of first base or third base, but they have some guys capable of stealing some bases.we are comparing players against the median of each category. so, the rankings we did earlier this winter are still relevant, but we decided not to do that again. instead we will include the three year numbers (we used to develop the rankings) to compare with the pecota projections. players that project to outperform the median will have green numbers. players t






2017 fantasy baseball: nl pitcher pecota projections k-w


we reach the end of our pecota series and it has been a lovely ride. pitchers are easily the most challenging group to project, and you will notice some commonalities with the pecota projections. the primary similarity is that wins are depressed for all of the pitchers. this is likely because wins are too difficult to predict anyhow. the biggest mistake fantasy players do with pitchers is base their assumptions about them on the previous season. this is particularly true of pitchers that won big the previous season.instead of ranking pitchers 1-36, we are comparing them with the median in the major four categories (wins, era, whip, and strikeouts) along with innings. pitchers that exceed or meet the median will be labeled in green font. pitchers that do not meet the median will be labeled






2017 fantasy baseball: right field pecota projections m-s


we come to the end of the pecota series for position players. right field is likely the deepest position on the diamond in terms of fantasy production. that can be seen through the median numbers, but also through the number of players that come close to the median. for instance, carlos beltran was a zero category guy in the last piece and yet was projected to hit around 20 home runs. this obviously should affect your draft or auction strategy.we are comparing the top 24 right fielders to the median numbers at each of the five primary categories. the median is defined as the average between the 12th and 13th ranked player in that particular category. players that meet or exceed the median will have their numbers labeled in green font. players that do not meet the median will have their num






2017 fantasy baseball: shortstop pecota projections a-i


shortstops are the quarterbacks of baseball. whether you are playing little league in the united states or playing on the sandlots of the dominican republic (or anywhere in between), the best players are always shortstops. the same thing normally happens in the minors. teams prioritize players that start in the middle of the diamond. they can always move them to the corners if they are unable to hold down their spots. like in reality, the position is exploding on the fantasy landscape. there are as many as a half dozen prominent fantasy shortstops under the age of 25.instead of ranking the shortstops we will be comparing them with the median numbers. the median is found by averaging the 12th and 13th best score for each of the five categories. players that meet or exceed the median will se






2017 fantasy baseball: third base pecota projections l-t


as we saw in the last edition, third base could be the deepest fantasy position on the diamond. for those that want to have quality at as many positions as possible, that means you can punt third base and reasonably expect to have a quality bat there later in the draft. if that’s the case, you are looking for someone that comes close to the median at every position while excelling in at least one or two categories. the median is defined as the average between the 12th and 13th third baseman in each of the five major categories.we didn’t include walks this time around, but a player’s relative patience is always considered in the background. a player who meets or exceeds the median in a particular category will have a green number. if a player does not meet the median, that number will be re






san diego home median price starts year under $500k


the san diego county median home price was $495,000 in january, unchanged for three months, corelogic said.in october, the median hit $507,500 — its highest point in a decade — but has remained under half a million dollars since and pushed the nominal 2005 peak of $517,500 (or $644,487 in 2016 dollars) further out of reach. january is typically the slowest month of the year, a lingering effect of buyers and sellers closing up shop for the holidays. there were 2,480 sales this january, up 4.6 percent from the same time last year. alan gin, economist at university of san diego, said a reason for the unmoved median home price could be rising interest rates since donald trump’s election victory and high prices.“while people want to buy houses, we’ve hit a big affordability problem,” gin said. 






2017 fantasy baseball: second base pecota rankings l-z


every position on the diamond is different. when one delves into numbers you can go as shallow or as deep as you want. finding the median is one thing, but you should always consider the distance from the median when making your picks. putting together a fantasy team can be a lot like playing tetris. you have to fit the pieces together to win, so finding those five category contributors is valuable, but sometimes it is more valuable to get someone that dominates in three or four.as we move to the second half of the alphabet we find fewer five category guys, but we may have some folks that are more valuable because of how they may dominate a category or two. players that meet or exceed the median will have green numbers. players that don’t meet the median will have red numbers. it might be

the san diego county median home price hit $525,000 in april, passing the region’s previous peak reached in 2005, real estate tracker corelogic reported tuesday.demand and lack of supply appears to have been the factor in pushing the price beyond previous milestones. there were 3,618 homes sold in april — the lowest for that month since 2012.there were 4,763 active home listings in san diego county in april, said the greater san diego association of realtors. last year at the same time there were 5,754 listings and 6,386 in 2015.when adjusted for inflation, the nominal november 2005 peak of $517,500 would be $644,487 in 2016 dollars. still, the san diego median price is noteworthy for increasing 7.4 percent in a year and outpacing most of southern california.there were 2,306 resale homes s

five points has the highest rent in denver, but highlands ranch has highest aver


highlands ranch reported the most expensive median rent for two-bedroom apartments last month in the metro area, at $1,850, beating out denver at $1,730 a month, according to a report monday from apartmentlist.but within denver proper, the five points neighborhood reported the highest median two-bedroom rent at $2,130 a month, according to apartmentlist, a bay area company that aggregates online apartment listings.apartmentlist found that metro denver apartment rents are up a modest 1 percent year-over-year in march versus a 2.1 percent gain for colorado as a whole. centennial had some of the strongest gains, with a 7.6 percent increase in rents compared to a year earlier. median rents on one-bedrooms there ran $1,460 a month, while two-bedrooms were at $1,700.aurora showed a 3 percent gai






interns at these companies make more than the u.s. median worker


summer is nearing, and workplaces everywhere are awaiting the arrival of this year’s interns to help out on extra projects and shoulder the seasonal load. but among certain companies, they’re likely doing more than getting coffee and making copies. or at least, they’re being paid that way.according to a new report by the jobs site glassdoor, the 25 best-paying companies for internships each pay their median summer worker more than $4,500 a month. that amount, if it was paid over the course of a full year, would be north of $54,000, exceeding the median annual pay for a u.s. worker, according to glassdoor’s own local pay reports ($51,350), and the annual figure calculated from the bureau of labor statistics’ latest weekly earnings data for full-time wage and salary workers ($44,460).topping






homestead road median canceled after neighbors complain


(apple inc. / city of sunnyvale) following strong opposition from residents along homestead road, a plan to bring a tree-lined median down the middle of a street separating a neighborhood from the apple park campus has been canceled.apple inc. and the cities of cupertino and sunnyvale proposed building the median between wolfe road and quail avenue/tantau avenue to act as a traffic calming measure and buffer between sunnyvale’s birdland neighborhood and the tech mega-campus.but according to a blog post this month by city manager deanna santana, a feb. 22 outreach meeting with neighbors generated enough skepticism to ditch the plan. residents at the meeting were strongly against the idea, saying that they were concerned that a median would add to traffic congestion, make it more difficult f






illinois' middle class shrank over the last 40 years. here's why.


the decline of the middle class and rise of income inequality have been at the heart of the nation's economic storyline for years, and a new report attempts to quantify how those trends have hit illinois.middle-income households, which in the early 1970s made up 59 percent of all households in illinois, constituted just 49 percent of the state's total during the past five years, according to the report from the project for middle class renewal at the university of illinois at urbana-champaign.meantime, illinois' median household income among the middle class has grown very modestly over that period, to $80,800 in 2015 from $79,300 in 1980, adjusting for inflation. but high-income households have seen their median income jump 14.5 percent, to $192,900 from $168,500. the median pay for low-i






2017 fantasy baseball: al starting pitchers pecota projections a-m


evaluating pitchers is easily the hardest thing to do in fantasy baseball. so much of what pitchers do is dependent on those around them. as researchers, scouts, and statisticians put their heads together, the more they realize how much fielding impacts pitching and pitchers’ numbers. throw in the fantasy element of relying on wins (and losses in some leagues) and you see how incredibly difficult it is to project success or failure.like with the hitters, we are taking the projections for the top 36 starters and ranking them against the median. in this case, the median was taken by plotting every al starter projected to pitch 100 or more innings and taking the median of their numbers in each indivual statistic. we will include the four major categories (wins, era, whip, and strikeouts) alon

san diego home prices dip in february


the san diego county median home price dropped 1 percent in february to $492,000, corelogic said.typically one of the slowest months of the year, the february median price has increased on average just 1.4 percent from january since 2000.san diego’s median hit $507,500 in october but has been under half a million dollars since. it is still below the nominal 2005 peak of $517,500 (or $644,487 in 2016 dollars).there were 2,605 home sales in february, down 405 homes from its average since 2000.however, over the 12-month period the county’s median home price increased 8.1 percent, corelogic said.chris thornberg, economist and founding partner of beacon economics, said a sales drop in february was not a big enough indication that the more robust spring or summer buying season would not occur as






condo values catching up to single-family homes
