The Daily ran a story on Thursday called "The Only Woman in the Room."

This story did a great job of using analytical data to tell a story. The story is about women becoming faculty in the sciences. The story ran CP in the paper and there were a lot of super cool graphics that helped tell the story.

There were a number of different graphs that compared males and females and their involvement in science. They graphs and pictures were placed all over the pages. They did a great job of telling the story visually, which is important for stories that involve a lot of numbers.

The graphs were color coated, and there were at least four different kinds of graphs used.

It can be really hard to effectively gather data, but the reporter gathered data from places like the University's College of Science and Engineering, the U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation and condensed it to make something relatively easy for the reader to understand.

Numbers and data can be really powerful when used properly to help tell the story.
