Cost of Human Life and Human Trafficking Worldwide

Human Trafficking is the trade of humans of all genders and age groups for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, commercial sexual exploitation, low-level criminal activities, begging, and extraction of organs or tissues. Human Trafficking is a global problem and can occur within the country or internationally. Human Trafficking is a serious crime and a grave violation of Human Rights.

Slavery and the trade in human life considered an historical artefact, but it still very much persists in in the modern world. As per UNODC: Global Report on Trafficking in Persons (2012), annual profit generated by Human Trafficking for forced labor worldwide is US $31.6 Billion.

STOP Human Trafficking.

Which Quarterback has the most playoff touchdown passes?

When Tableau announced that March is going to be Sports Viz month, I first saw the news and thought to myself that I am going to take a pass on this one, as I am not much of a sports fan. Then being a Tableau fan and with a few viz’s in my bag, I embarked on the journey to create my first Sports Viz.

During my search, I came across lot of websites that listed out NFL quarterbacks passing touchdowns in regular season, but did not see sites that can show touchdown passes during the playoff season. While browsing through these sites my Tableau bulb went off and I decided to create a viz of quarterbacks touchdown passes during the playoff games.

Using sports data from, below is my sports viz about “Which Quarterback has the most playoff touchdown passes?

I would like to thank without which this viz would not have been possible. Also, I like to thank and Google/images for quarterback pictures.

Enjoy my Sports Viz ! #Tableau #IronViz

How Chicago gets around on Divvy?

Divvy is Chicago’s new bike share program with about 4,000 bikes and 400 stations across the city. Primary purpose of the Divvy program is to provide Chicagoans with an additional transportation option to getting around the city. Divvy means Divide and Share and is a fun way to getting around. 

In 2013, Divvy bikes traveled about 1.28 million miles, in about 261 thousand hours and made 759 thousand trips between different stations. Wow, that's lot of miles with smiles :)

Divvy riders are two types; members with annual passes who ride regularly, and casual riders or 24 Hour pass riders who wants to get around the city. 

Check out my Divvy Viz as part of the Divvy Data Challenge.
