Census appThe U.S. Census Bureau has a new smartphone application that tells you where you should live.

Dwellr asks questions about your age, sex and  education level. It also asks for general information about your friends and the kind of weather and geography you prefer. It wants to know if you prefer large, medium or small cities, and the general area of the country you want to locate.

I may have tailored my answers a bit to get this outcome, but Dwellr says I want to live in Rochester. Buffalo and Syracuse were the second and third choices.

Where does Dwellr say you want to live?

– Several RCSD basketball players were arrested while waiting for a school bus on Main Street. It’s notable their coach backs them up. It’s also notable the police version and the student version of what happened is pretty much the same – and the students were not accused of using obscene language. The issue here is whether the incident was handled in the best way possible.
