With the senior Men’s National Team looking for scoring power in the Hexagonal, and beyond, the left-footed Villareal could become an attractive option for Jurgen Klinsmann. Villareal could sit in a slot behind Jose Altidore, running off target forward for scoring opportunities. A clear talent, Villareal should at the very least get a look in this summer’s Gold Cup.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with some really talented people throughout my career — including now that I’m at the Urban Institute. My colleague Tim Meko, our infographics specialist, put together the graphic below for the Catholic News Service to explain the Papal Conclave. Even better, he put together this “making of” time-lapse video by taking a screen capture every two seconds while working on the project.
What you’re looking at here is 22.5 hours of work, spread over nearly two weeks. Watch it and see if we can get Tim over 1,000 views.
