comment Who was the fifth army in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie?
@randal'thor Thanks! :) I didn't want to make it seem like I didn't appreciate the references to the books alongside an answer, but still wanted everything addressed clearly in the top voted answer (which is unlikely to change at this point).

comment Who was the fifth army in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie?
I find it dissatisfying that the highest rated answer didn't actually answer the question. It uses information from the book which was changed in the movie(thus making the answer technically not answer the question asked)? While it was the best answer prior to the release, I no longer feel it is the case. Could we get a major edit adding in updated information now that the movie has been released as we actually know who the five armies are (per @Keen's most recent edit)?

comment A line graph for each row
@Roland After reading his description, I'm imagining three different plots(faceted by Category perhaps?) and each plot is a line plot (with 3 lines, one for each Port?) with the x-axis values being years. Not positive though. To Manuel, I suggest looking at this question.

comment rbind and overwrite duplicate rows based on key variable?
Sorry to dredge this up, but the original poster didn't accept this answer or follow up on it. I'm in the same situation as they are (except I'm using multiple keys) and this answer only slightly doesn't work. I want to be able to keep the latter of the key entries, not the first one. This works perfectly except it keeps the first key (5,r) instead of the intended one (5,w). Is the ordering of the keys contingent on what order you rbind the different data frames?

comment How to remove gender bias from an academic job search?
I think this is a very interesting way to think about it. Look at historical data and determine where your particular institution has the most trouble(because no two institutions are the same). Very nice! Thank you for your response.

comment How to remove gender bias from an academic job search?
An interesting thought...when I mentioned this to some faculty they mentioned that sometimes there aren't nearly enough women candidates to even select one that's a proper fit for the school. The particular position is a CS position where women are sorely lacking (only 20% of CS PhD awarded were women, and how many of them will seek academic jobs?) While it seems logical to pick one woman to interview, they've said in reality they've had years where there are 0 female applicants, or none that are even a remotely good fit.
