Off topic: Butler business, fueled by cheese, U.S. history in maps, WTF

Thanks to “Downton Abbey,” there’s a butler boom — and plenty of opportunity for those who want to train them. Bien sûr France has a power plant fueled by cheese. American Panorama is an interactive atlas of U.S. history that covers the forced migration of enslaved people, overland trails, foreign-born population and canals. And the World Taekwondo Foundation is going to rebrand itself because of its rather unfortunate acronym.
