Hi, I'm Brazilian but I haven't noticed any use of data viz/statiscs that could be considered a good example of these tools.  

As well as in Turkey, we had (probably) for the first time the presence of drones in the Brazilian press. Last week, Folha de São Paulo used a drone to follow two or three different large groups of demonstrators. The result is here  


Last weekend, NYT translated the signs in Recife and São Paulo

If you guys need something for your newsroom, let me know

Many have weighed into why this might be the case. I have kept trying to write an analysis for internationals to better understand but am left without words that are adequate.

Are there more people because the world got shittier? Or did Australia just get shittier? Hmm.
