<![CDATA[Some Cool Map Projections and What You Might Use Them For]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/map-projections/amylindorff
What is a map projection? Oh boy, get ready to learn! Map projections are the ways humans attempt to portray the curved earth's surface on a flat piece of paper or computer screen. Because the surface of the earth isn't flat, there is inevitably distortion in whatever way a cartographer (map maker) chooses to show the planet. Unfortunately, you just have to deal with it and choose the projection with least amount of distortion for your purposes when you create a map.

There are many map projection types, and they all have special uses for which they are best suited. There's the Mercator projection, which most likely hung in your elementary school classroom. It shows North and South America on one side, and Africa, Europe, and Asia on the other, and then Australia is off to the side, and the whole bottom is just Antarctica in a white stripe. There's the Albers projection, which is great for showing area, but boy do the shapes of all the countries look weird. There's also the Gall-Peters projection, which any geography buff or geographer will tell you ruffled everyone's feathers in the '80s.

If you make your own map or make a map online, you will probably be just fine. Plus, what are you mapping, anyway? Did you know any person's cell phone will show them how to get to your house? Technology! However, even in this modern age, it is good to be aware different map projections so that you know what you are looking at. And also so you know that Greenland really isn't that big. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Read on to learn more about the best map projection, how to make a map, and maybe even map making in general. Maybe you will impress a potential new romantic partner at a party with this information. You are most welcome!

Mercator Projection
Good for: When you are sailing a ship or are in elementary school.

Bad for: Understanding how big Greenland and Antarctica are.
Gall-Peters Projection
Good for: More accurately displaying the sizes of countries.

Bad for: Keeping everyone calm in the 1980s.
Robinson Projection
Good for: Showing the entire world all at once.

Bad for: Not stretching and distorting the poles to infinity.
Cassini Projection
Good for: Preserving distances perpendicular to the central meridian.

Bad for: Learning the shapes of Central and South American countries.
Gall Stereographic Projection
Good for: Balancing distortion of shape, distance, and size.

Bad for: Getting anything right.
Albers Projection
Good for: Limiting distortion between the standard parallels.

Bad for: Minimizing distortion of shape and scale. Looking anything like a globe at all.
Hobo-Dyer Projection
Good for: When you are like, "I want an equal-area map, but really wish the back side of it had the same map, printed upside down for a fresh, new take on things."

Bad for: Seeing Greenland at all.
Lambert Cylindrical Equal-Area Projection
Good for: Not distorting the equator. Being very wide.

Bad for: Locating that place in Canada where Ice Road Truckers is filmed.
Sinusoidal Projection
Good for: Having a constant scale along the central meridian and constant east-west scale.

Bad for: Being round. People who are scared of sine waves.
Mollweide Projection
Good for: Depicting global distributions.

Bad for: Accurately depicting of the shapes of continents.

<![CDATA[America's Coolest College Towns]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/america_s-coolest-college-towns
List of the best college towns and cities. These locations provide not just a great university giving students a world-class education, but also a fun and diverse environment that'd conducive to learning, building a community and personal network and, more generally, gaining life experience. (There's also some fun places to party in most of them. You know, if any college students you know are into that sort of thing.)

A college town can refer to any area where the population is considerably impacted, or even dominated, by a local college or university. Typically, this indicates an area that has a relatively low population compared to the number of students at a university. Large cities with a lot of university students - such as Boston or Philadelphia - do not typically count as "college towns" because of the overall number of cities counter-acting the influence of college students.

Towns that do have an overwhelmingly large number of college students tend to be impacted in familiar ways. Often, there will be additional bookstores, coffee shops, independent movie theaters, record stores and other businesses that appeal largely to a younger, academic demographic. Additionally, there will also be a surplus of bars and inexpensive restaurants. Rent prices also tend to be affected by the demand for housing in the area near to the university, or to public transportation leading to the university.

This list collects Ranker Community picks for the coolest, most fun college towns in the US. Vote up your favorites, and if the place where your favorite townies live isn't listed, make your own version of the list and add it on there!

<![CDATA[The Deadliest School Shootings in U.S. History]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/deadliest-school-shootings-100215/loganrapp
Schools in America have been no stranger to violence. Despite these places being a place of learning, lone or paired shooters have turned many of the nation's learning institutions into deadly crime scenes. To really show the scope of how this violence has affected campuses across the country, this list compiles the worst school shootings in US history

From the Columbine High School shooting, to Virginia Tech, and the UCC shooting in Oregon, school safety has become a serious concern among Americans. This list of school shootings shows just how pervasive gun violence has affected elementary schools, high schools, universities and vocational schools. When looking at school shooting statistics, it should also be helpful to actually look at and read harrowing accounts of school violence. 

So look through this school shooting today list and learn details of these senseless acts. Then afterward, go through some of our less depressing and horrifying lists to make your day a little bit better. 

Umpqua Community College Shooting - 2015
Death toll: 10
Injured: 9 

Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, fatally shot nine people before being killed by police at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. According to law enforcement sources, he had anti-religion, anti-government and white supremacist leanings.
University of Iowa - 1991
Death toll: 6
Injured: 1
Gang Lu, a 28-year-old former graduate student and doctorate recipient, shot students and faculty during a research meeting at the university before committing suicide. He was considered to be abusive and aggressive toward people whenever challenged.
Red Lake - 2005
Death toll: 10
Injured: 7 

Jeffrey Weise, 16, killed his grandfather and a companion before going to Red Lake High School in Minnesota, opening fire on students. After an exchange of gunfire with police, he retreated to a vacant classroom and committed suicide. Weise had depression and behavioral issues in the years after, which may have led to the shooting. 
CSU Fullerton - 1976
Death toll: 7
Injured: 2 

Edward Charles Allaway, a custodian for CSU Fullerton, had a history of violence. In June, 1976 he opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle in the library on campus. Afterward, he fled to Anaheim, CA calling police to say, "I went berserk at Cal State Fullerton, and I committed some terrible act. I’d appreciate it if you people would come down and pick me up. I’m unarmed, and I’m giving myself up to you."

After his arrest, he was declared legally insane.
Virginia Tech - 2007
Death toll: 33
Injured: 25 

Sueng-Hui Cho, a senior at Virginia Tech, had been diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder, even so far as having a Virginia special justice order him to seek treatment. But because he was not institutionalized, he was able to purchase firearms. Virginia Tech was unable to know about any of this due to medical privacy laws. Cho committed two separate shootings, even going so far as to pause after the first, change his clothes, and then continue his rampage. Cho then committed suicide. 
Oikos University - 2012
Death toll: 7
Injured: 3 

This tragedy occurred when One L. Goh, a 43-year old former student at this Korean Christian college in Oakland, CA, walked into a class, ordered classmates to line up, and proceeded to execute them with a pistol. He then fled the scene, and was later arrested by police. It is believed that he was angered at being expelled from Oikos and had intended to find a specific administrator, but when he couldn't, he targeted victims at random.
Sandy Hook - 2012
Death toll: 28
Injured: 2 

After shooting and killing his mother in their home, 20-year-old Adam Lanza proceeded to go to Sandy Hook Elementary School, firing on the students and faculty within. So far, evidence has shown that Lanza was obsessed with mass shootings, but authorities have not found evidence to suggest why he went to Sandy Hook specifically. 

This incident was the deadliest mass shooting at a high school or grade school in U.S. history. 
UT Austin - 1966
Death toll: 17
Injured: 31

Charles Whitman, 25, was an engineering student and former U.S. Marine studying at the University of Texas - Austin. After being honorably discharged for gambling while in the Corps, he killed his wife and mother, then proceeded to climb atop an observation deck at his school and fire on students during a 96-minute rampage until he was shot dead by police
Columbine High School - 1999
Death toll: 15
Injured: 21

Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, calling themselves the Trench Coat Mafia, fired upon their fellow students at Columbine High School, as well as using firebomb attacks to distract firefighters. It's largely thought that Harris and Klebold were targets for bullying, leading to the massacre. Both Harris and Klebold committed suicide in the attack.
Cleveland School - 1989
Death toll: 6
Wounded: 29
Patrick Purdy, after a long criminal history, attacked predominantly South Asian and Vietnamese refugee students at Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton, CA. Purdy descended upon the school, firing 106 rounds in three minutes. He killed 5 children and wounded 29 others, including one teacher.

He was identified as a misanthrope and reportedly hated Asian immigrants. He had carved the words "freedom", "victory", "Earthman", and "Hezbollah" on his rifle, and his flak jacket read "PLO", "Libya", and "death to the Great Satin" [sic].

<![CDATA[Kids Who Got Suspended for Dumb Reasons]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/kids-who-got-suspended-for-dumb-reasons-091715/mike-rothschild
The growth of the "zero tolerance policy" has led to a vast number of students being suspended, expelled, or even arrested for "crimes" that virtually nobody considers crimes. Because of schools adopting harsh rules against drugs, violence, bad behavior or anything they deem misconduct, students have been subject to punishments that far outstrip anything they might have done wrong.

In past instances, kids as young as six have been led out of class in handcuffs and wrongfully suspended for wearing the wrong clothing, making noises, bringing something that looks like it maybe could possibly almost be a weapon, or just bothering someone. This culminated in the arrest and suspension of Ahmed Mohamed, a high school freshman who made a clock for a science project, and was interrogated by police because his English teacher thought it looked like a bomb.

But Ahmed was far from the first student humiliated, arrested, and traumatized, and kicked out of school over nothing, or for doing something that only skirted the edges of a zero tolerance policy. Here are some of the most egregious cases of zero tolerance gone wrong. Which kids were accidentally suspended for the silliest reasons? Vote up the worst and most ridiculous cases of kids being suspended over nothing below.


The Third Grader Expelled Because of Her Grandma's Cake
A Delaware third grader was expelled for a year because her grandmother had sent a birthday cake to school, along with a knife to cut it. The teacher used the knife to cut and serve the cake, then promptly turned the student in for having a knife. The expulsion was eventually overturned.

The Student Arrested for Burping
A 13-year-old New Mexico student was arrested, handcuffed, and hauled off to juvie - all for the crime of disrupting his class by burping once. Apparently the young man burped "audibly" during gym class, prompting his teacher to complain to school authorities. This same student had earlier been stripped searched in front of numerous adults after being accused of selling pot - which was never found. The boy's parents filed a lawsuit against the school.

The Third Grader Sent to Detention for Having a Jolly Rancher
A Texas third grader was given a week of detention for the heinous crime of having a green Jolly Rancher. School officials claimed they were following a state law that prohibits students from having junk food.

The Five Year Old Suspended Over a Hello Kitty Bubble Gun
A Pennsylvania five year old was suspended from her kindergarten after making a "terrorist threat" - suggesting she and a friend should have a bubble fight with their pink Hello Kitty bubble shooters. She was initially suspended for 10 days (this was reduced to two) and given a psychological evaluation. Her parents threatened to sue the school.

The Student Arrested Over a Maple Leaf
A Virginia middle school student was arrested, given a one year suspension, and forced to undergo psychological counseling because he was caught carrying a leaf that looked suspiciously like a marijuana plant. Except it wasn't pot at all - it was a maple leaf allegedly put in his backpack by another student. The charges were eventually dropped and the boy allowed to go back to school - but he had to attend a different school in the district, and was still subjected to random pat-downs.

The Boy Nearly Suspended for a Tiny LEGO Gun
A Massachusetts six year old was nearly suspended for bringing a Navy LEGO figure on his school bus - one that happened to be carrying a tiny rifle. His fellow students allegedly panicked and told the driver, who told school officials. After deeming the quarter-sized toy non-threatening, the boy was merely given detention and forced to write a letter of apology.

The Girl Suspended for a "Paper Gun"
A Philadelphia elementary school student was suspended, searched in front of other students, and reduced to tears after being caught with a piece of paper folded and torn in the shape of a gun. The paper had been given to her by her grandfather, and she threw it out - only to have another student take it out of the trash and give it to their teacher.

The Girl Stripped Searched on Suspicion of Carrying Advil
Arizona eighth grader Savana Redding had her belongings searched when another student went to school authorities with a tip that she was carrying drugs - two Advil tablets to be exact. When nothing was found, the school ordered her strip searched - and again found nothing. Redding's parents sued the school, and the case went all the way to the Supreme Court.

The Six Year Old Suspended Because He Made His Hand Into a Gun
Mason Jammer, a kindergartner at Jefferson Elementary in Ionia, NY was suspended after he curled his fist into the shape of a gun and "pointed" it at another student. The gesture allegedly made other students uncomfortable.

The Second Grader Suspended for a Pop-Tarts Gun
A Maryland boy was suspended for biting his breakfast Pop-Tarts pastry into the shape of a gun and saying "bang bang" to another boy. The school felt this was a threat, despite the fact that the boy was actually trying to chew the pastry into the shape of a mountain, before realizing it sort of looked like a firearm. His family litigated with the school for over two years - and his suspension was upheld.

<![CDATA[The Greatest College Halloween Celebrations in America]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-college-halloween-parties/jacob-shelton
When you’re in college, you've got to take advantage of any excuse to party. And there’s no better time for partying than the candy and booze-filled holiday of Halloween. The best Halloween parties usually have some kind of loose theme tying the revelry together, but as you’ll see on this list of party schools with the biggest Halloween celebrations, sometimes the only theme is “party.”

Some of the colleges on this list go all out and have a decadent evening (or weekend) dedicated to letting their freak flags fly, but a few of the universities at least try to do something festive with the community before smashing pumpkins filled with beer over their heads (or whatever it is that they do). Put on your most Halloween-y soundtrack and see how your alma mater stacks up to the greatest college Halloween celebrations in America.

The best college Halloween parties is a subjective topic, but everyone can agree that they should at least have a few things going for them. Specifically, costumes and at least one instance of everyone doing the Monster Mash. In college, Halloween party schools are a completely different animal than your regular party school. The colleges on this list take the Halloween spirit very seriously. Thank goodness Halloween and spring break aren’t around the same time, or the students at the schools on this list would never get anything done.

Vote up which college party is the greatest in America. And if your college does Halloween better than any of the universities on this list, tells us all about it in the comments.

Arizona State University
ASU is the quintessential party school, so they obviously have a million-billion Halloween parties raging throughout the holiday weekend, but the most interesting tradition is something a little sillier. Every year, the ASU Sun Devils host a baseball scrimmage where the team dresses up in ridiculous costumes and play a four inning game for the locals. After that, all hell breaks loose. 
Brown University
The home of HP Lovecraft, Brown University, goes full creepy on Halloween and hosts a midnight organ concert that features nothing but death themed music played on the largest remaining Hutchings-Votey organ in the world. Obviously, the set ends with Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. 

Georgetown University
Everyone agrees that The Exorcist is one of the scariest movies ever made. But did you know that Father Karras's deadly fall was filmed on the Georgetown campus? Every Halloween the film is shown on Copley Lawn. After it ends, students go to the cemetery near Healy Hall for the Healy Howl, i.e. college students getting drunk in a cemetery and howling at the moon. If you've never seen The Exorcist, this seems like a fun way to be introduced to the film and act like a total goon at the same time.
Ohio University
What began in the '70s as a few drunk students getting together and stopping traffic downtown, Ohio University’s Halloween Block Party has since grown into an evening-long event featuring music, a giant cake, and all manner of costumed debauchery. If that doesn't sound like your idea of a good time, Ohio University does offer alternative activities like free movie screenings, and an open swim in the school's aquatic center for students who don’t want to deal with the crowds. 
Pennsylvania State University
Penn State celebrates Halloween with a pumpkin carving festival that spans not only the campus, but the entire surrounding community. The festival is an all day thing that features pumpkin carving (duh), corn husk dolls, music, art, and maybe even some pumpkin cider. 
Rice University
Rice might not be the first college that comes to mind when you think about party schools, but since it's in Houston, you know they're up to no good. First held in 1972, Rice University's Night of Decadence is one of the biggest college parties in America. Every year the NOD has a different sex-related theme (Come Together, Right Now (All) Over Me,  NODtendo 69: Blow My Cartridge, etc.), and always features a giant phallus named Sparky. If you think you have the stamina to keep up with 1,500 sex-crazed college students, this might be the Halloween party for you. 
Texas A&M University
Every year for Halloween, this college deep in the heart of Texas hosts the Wicked Woods Haunted Trail, a five acre assault on the senses that ranks as the fifth largest haunted attraction in Texas. Students and members of the community line up to pay to be scared by Texas A&M’s Kappa Sigma chapter all in the name of charity. If you're looking for a break from the usual college booze fests, this might be your best bet. 
University of Iowa
The University of Iowa is one of the top party schools in America, so it should come as no surprise that they completely throw down on Halloween. There are your standard official campus activities like the Ames Haunted Forest and the Freeman Haunted House, but the dorm costume parties are where this school really succeeds. 
University of Rochester
The University of Rochester isn't your typical party school, but they still know how to have fun on Halloween. For almost 100 years, the school's main library has been transformed into a haunted house that features a scavenger hunt, animals from the local zoo, and local bands. If you're in the area you should definitely check this place out because if you win the scavenger hunt you get to take a trip into Rush Rees tower - a dome that overlooks the campus and most of Rochester.
University of Wisconsin-Madison
UW Madison basically has its PhD in partying. What began as a Vietnam War protest has since turned into a 20,000 person party. Madison's Halloween party clogs up State Street for an entire night, somehow taking a city that's already at party level 11, and turning it up even more. This Halloween party is only for professionals.
