The Finger Points Outwards - No. 86

FILM: What percentage of a crew for a major film is female? Hint: it is not high.

BASEBALL: An argument for a mid-season title game in baseball. I am not sure American fans will take to a title game that is not the main event. On the other hand (association) football fans get somewhat excited about minor trophies.

FOOTBALL: How unlikely an event was Germany’s 7-1 World Cup semi-final win against Brazil? This article also tries to translate the result to comparable results for other sports.

ART/ECONOMICS/MUSIC: Why Taylor Swift is wrong about the value of music albums in the internet age. And a follow-up article applying the arguments to other forms of art and media.

WOMEN: The 19 hottest redheads of all time. Just ‘cause.
