Fun with math: Federal art stimulus funding

There's so much talk lately of national and global economic stimulus plans, budgets and federal funding, that it's easy to reach information overload - what does it all mean?

A recent blog entry at Art:21 on the topic of federal art stimulus spending puts the issue into plain English, or rather, simple math. The writer helpfully reduces the sometimes overwhelming verbiage of federal funding grants into a simple numbers game, with an easy-to-follow "chunky text" format.

Art:21 followed up the next day with a more word-centric, lengthy posting of an interview with House Arts Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and Rep. Todd Russell Platts (R-PA),  that helps to flesh out the issues and put matters into a broader perspective.

This is great reading for artists, art supporters and those who work in the visual arts field. After looking at the numbers, do you think the arts are getting a fair shake? Too much? Too little?

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
