Mazda Museum, Hiroshima: Welcome to Rotor City
While most automakers maintain at least a cursory collection of their own cars placed in order for posterity, the protocols for displaying them—if they’re presented at all—are varied. Some are shown with little fanfare, randomly assembled in a dimly lit building, while others are grandiose architectural manifestations of corporate egomania. Having been to numerous examples of both, we’ve found that a museum’s stylistic presentation is in no way commensurate with the coolness of its contents.
Indeed, that idea never left our minds as we toured the official Mazda Museum on a recent visit to the Japanese automaker’s sprawling Hiroshima, Japan, headquarters. Like the company itself, the museum is humble but exceedingly cool, housing a collection of historic Mazdas, many of which were never sold in the United States.

A genetic map of the world – Gene Expression
The above map is from a new preprint on the patterns of genetic variation as a function of geography for humans, Genetic landscapes reveal how human genetic diversity aligns with geography. The authors assemble an incredibly large dataset to generate these figures. The orange zones are “troughs” of gene flow. Basically barriers to gene flow.  It is no great surprise that so many of the barriers correlate with rivers, mountains, and deserts. But the aim of this sort of work seems to be to make precise and quantitative intuitions which are normally expressed verbally.
