Freedom days refers to the number of days that your retirement savings could sustain you (without working) each year (indefinitely) at your current spending level. Once you reach 365 freedom days per year, you’ve got enough money saved up to never have to work again. The freedom date then tells you the date through which your retirement savings would support you each year. For example, if you have 100 freedom days then your spending could be covered through April 10th, each year.
How close are you to 365 “freedom days”?The goal of the freedom calculator is to let you know how close to financial independence (i.e. freedom) you are, measuring your progress in terms of freedom days. The key determinants for retirement are total retirement savings and annual spending.
My latest “visualization” is a wordcloud of Steve Jobs’ keynote address when he introduced the iPhone in 2007. (more…)
The fires in Napa and Santa Rosa California have been burning for about a week and a half so far and these fires have resulted in numerous deaths (with many more missing), significant property damage (over 4000 buildings), and forced the evacuation of tens of thousands from their homes. Luckily, these fires are mostly contained at this point with incredible work from firefighters and as well as from the weather (link to fire status on the CalFire’s websites on the Tubbs, Atlas, Nuns fires).
Here is the 2nd update of the original graphs that I made of Bryce Love’s rushing awesomeness. Bryce Love is still in a different league from all other running backs in the college football (and now has almost 300 yards more than his next closest competitor, and more than twice as many rushing yards as Saquon Barkley of Penn State).
I am updating the original graphs that I made of Bryce Love’s rushing awesomeness. Bryce Love is still in a different league from all other running backs in the college football (about 250 yards more than his next closest competitor).
Updates: I’ve updated the graphs with the latest data here.
The latest visualization is focused on college football, not because there’s not enough articles written about college football (there are), but because there’s lots of interesting data out there and I’m still working on developing my visualization skills.
