If you thought the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics was boring, just look at how pop culturally relevant they've become with their latest blog post . Although the latest Hunger Games movie came out months ago , the Bureau took its own data on employment (based on industries, occupation, employment numbers and geography) to figure out the eternal question of how the dystopian future country of Panem from the book and film series lines up with the real U.S. geography. SEE ALSO: Woody Harrelson joins young Han Solo movie The books (and film adaptations) have made it clear that the 12 "districts" somewhat align with certain states and regions in the current U.S. geographic layout. Ever since the books came out nearly 10 years ago, many maps have attempted to show what Panem looks like. Read more... More about Panem , Employment , Jobs , Industry , and Data

The rest of the league's games are available on YouTube Live. The ownership group includes longtime NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball business executive Andy Dolich, who spent four years with the San Francisco 49ers, seven with the Memphis Grizzlies and 15 with the Oakland A's. "This is the laboratory for fans to actually express themselves and be involved however immersively we can take them as we move forward," Dolich told Reuters in a phone interview. "We can go to the white board and really give the fans, who are giving of their time, their money, their enthusiasm, their heart and soul and their knowledge, an opportunity to get involved." Any fan that downloads the app can engage in voting, though fans that hunger for advanced participation can ante up for special tutorials that allow them to contribute in the team's virtual front office.

Swedish supermarkets offer their customers a wide choice of delicacies from across the globe, but are heavily reliant on imports. The Nordic country's food reserves are so low that they would be eaten up within a single week in the event of a national emergency.

And so the statement that Britons living on the Continent will face legal demands for papers if continentals living in Britain do so is just a statement of the blindingly, not to say bleedin', obvious. Because that's just the way the system works and always has done.

They know that until now we haven't won the title. "And it's important to know this, to keep our antennae very high, because in my career as a footballer, above all as a footballer, I won a lot, but I lost a lot. "And when you lose three finals of the Champions League and you win only one, I think you have a great hunger. "During my experience as a footballer I won a title with eight points (to make up) four games before the end and another time I lost in the same way." The chief talking point from Saturday's game centred around Chelsea's 13th-minute opener, awarded despite Alonso cleaning out Hector Bellerin with his forearm as he leapt to head the ball in. Bellerin had to go off, to be replaced by Gabriel, and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger felt it was "100% a foul". Conte, unsurprisingly, took a different view. "In England, in this league, this is always a goal," he said.

It's a brilliant, sometimes incoherent fantasy that melds Bekmambetov's great style with a story that involves modern day vampires that are split into two factions: the night watch and the day watch. Don't try and understand it, just feast on the surreal, stunning visuals. Splitting the last book in the series was a mistake as instead of having one fantastic movie, you instead have two good ones. Mockingjay - Part 2 is by far the darkest Hunger Games movie but it's well made and a fitting end to the franchise. While there's not enough Hunger Games style action scenes, the end showdown is worth the wait and elevates the movie above its YA fiction leanings. Guillermo del Toro's back catalogue is wonderful bag of strangeness. He's delved into the superhero genre with both Blade II and Hellboy, wrote a fan letter to Japanese culture with Pacific Rim, tackled horror with both Chronos and Devil's Backbone but his masterpiece has to be Pan's Labyrinth.
