    The theme is People Power! See below. The first examples: smart heads creating three data driven pictures to visually simplify complex problems in the USA from COVID-19 to floods to the police. 1) In this NPR interactive map The Coronavirus Crisis Tracking The Pandemic: Are Coronavirus Cases Rising Or Falling In Your State? middle page, you can touch the circle in your state (laptop only) for the latest numbers. 2) Climate changes notwithstanding, among the 50 states, what's your home's flood factor whether or not you live in an apartment or house? Enter your zip code to find out at FloodFactor.com. 3) Garden State residents, The ForceReport.com for New Jersey lets you search the most comprehensive statewide database of police use of force in the USA by the name of a police department or an officer. ForceReport is especially important to us since we are headquartered in New Jersey. The interactive Coronavirus map, the FloodFactor risk models, and the New Jersey statewide database of police use of force hits home how simplifying the display of information helps people better understand significant issues. We all do work. Work is a job. Your work may not be "database wiz," but it matters. When we created our mobile app People Power Jigsaw Puzzle we were thinking about what people do all around us. We cover the professions and pastimes, blue and white collar, urban, suburban, and rural in the puzzles. Dive into the three data driven resources above, and have some fun with our People Power Jigsaw Puzzles for iOS and Android that you can grab free from the app stores.

    In early October, 2019 we received an email from Albert G. who asked "Is there any way to add different comments to the emojis?" The stickers Albert was referencing are called AAeMojis for iPhone and Android. This is our app. AAeMojis are 137 African American emojis. Three weeks later after his suggestion, we've come up with a brand new sister app for AAeMojis called AAeMojis Comments Editor. This is a working title and may be changed before release! The app is finished and is in extreme testing for an Android release. It couldn't be any easier to add your own comments or caption to the emojis. There are 6 emojis included in the new app that are not in the original AAeMojis. If you grabbed AAeMojis for Android, the app creates a custom gallery in your phone (if you completed that optional step). Now in the new app AAeMojis Comments Editor you can load an emoji from the app (6 included) or from your phone gallery and add you own comment or shout out using different built-in type fonts! Super cool! Here is a screen shot example using an AAeMoji from the original collection (loaded from a gallery) with a caption added: Big bonus. You can use your camera inside of the app to take pictures, then add emojis to the picture. You can also grab any image from any gallery on your phone you want, customize, save, and share. These are only a few of the app benefits. We kept things really simple without going crazy with mindless features.  If you have AAeMojis on your phone (Android) you will get an instant notification when the comments editor is available for action. Look for the release of the free AAeMojis Comments Editor in early November 2019. We'll also produce a video showing you how to use the app. ** Update October 28, 2019. Final app name is AAeMojis Caption Editor. After testing on real phones and tablets using Android 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 we have released the app! If you have an older phone, no problem! Go creative crazy using AAeMojis Caption Editor on Google Play Watch the two how-to videos below:
