Ignorance isn’t bliss. Rather, education is.
At least, that’s what trends in education and well-being levels across American cities seem to show.
On Tuesday, we wrote about the happiest states and cities in America (Hawaii and Boulder, Colo., took top honors). In response, lots of readers have speculated about what made some states report higher levels of well-being than others.
Now Richard Florida, director of the Martin Prosperity Institute at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, and his colleague Charlotta Mellander have taken a closer look at the metropolitan well-being numbers. They found moderate correlations between happiness and other factors, like wages, unemployment and output per capita.
But the variable they looked at that showed the strongest relationship with happiness was “human capital,” measured as the share of the population with a bachelor’s degree or higher:

Web Fonts: Web Safe CSS Front Stack and Web Fonts
What are Web Fonts?
Unlike web safe fonts, web fonts are not pre-installed on the user’s system. The fonts are downloaded by the user’s browser while rendering the webpage, and then applied to your text. The main drawbacks of using web fonts is it will slow your site’s load time. There is also limited support for CSS3 in older browsers which is required to use web fonts. The later limitation can be remedied by using a font stack, similar to the web safe font stacks, but including a web font as the first font of the stack. If a browser is unable to use the web font it will fall back on the web safe fonts in the stack.
