Environment Canada removed 70 years of recorded weather data from its climate change website climatedata.ca
For the period 1950-2005 the Canadian Govt uses climate modeling instead the actual temperature readings to prove climate change
#ClimateBrawl #mckennamustgo
All data from 1850 to 1949 was deleted after Environment Canada concluded it did not like the data
For the period 1950-2005 observed data is not used but 24 computer simulations is the data set
The historical data at EC is not observed historical data it is modeled historic data
The highest recorded temp from every Province (except BC) is omitted at climatedata.ca

July 5, 1937Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan45.0 °C (113 °F)

Since July I've written 47 posts analyzing Sidewalk Labs' plans for Toronto, with my final post (barring some new twist) coming on Friday. So it's an appropriate time for some reflections.

I'm not sure that Torontonians realize the extent to which other countries are following, often in disbelief, the ongoing #Quayside debacle (which is what it is by any objective measure).
Over the past yr I've made several presentations in Europe to smart-city and internet scholars re Quayside. To a person they expressed disbelief that any of this, from the shoddy RFP to the Potemkin consultations to playing fast and loose with data definitions, is even happening.

A team of 35 interviewers from @Bluedotinsights are now in field conducting an independent, self-funded, multidimensional, nationally representative poll around the much discussed PNP Presidential Elections.
#aThread

Photo: Jamaica Observer
The poll will incorporate several methodologies such as traditional polling, online polling, sentiment analyses, neuroscience and data science.
We decided to do this based on the conflicting polls previously conducted which has led to public mistrust of the validity of political polling.

1/ THREAD

The trial of two #ProudBoys involved in the #NY9 incident began yesterday.

Defense contended #GavinMcInnes was a satirist whose work was taken out of context.

@ADL dir. @orensegal stated violence is a core tenant of Proud Boys charter.

@RVAwonk @lighttuponlight
2/ In 2017, (during an #IRB approved research project), I sought to probe Gavin’s #altright connections & explore the possibility that the #ProudBoys were a #radicalization vector.

Prior to this I had studied foreign #terrorism.

Here's 10 features that would help me find and make use of the data:
1) A good search engine that allows for filtering of content by data type, data categories, by dept., by geographic location and by licence.

#opendata #opengov #ontario #data
cc @datassist @jackiewtlu

1/5
2) A Primer for each dataset that includes a data dictionary, sample data and most importantly, a 'biography' of the data sets, meaning, who collected it (with contact info), why was it collected, who paid for it's collection, what's missing in the dataset, etc...
2/5
3) Show the most recent data sets added and the most frequently used datasets.

4) A project page with links to examples of how people both in govt and outside are are using the datasets.

So a few of us (@unhlangothi, @adantro, PeterLatham, @TPVogels, @JosephRaimondo) wrote a perspective piece for #PLOSCompBio entitled "Think: Theory for Africa" dx.plos.org/10.1371/journa…
here are some of the points
"we call for greater efforts to empower Africans to join the global neuroscience community and argue that the subfield of computational neuroscience is the ideal vehicle to do so"
neurotheory is super accessible!

[THREAD] 1/ In light of the #humantrafficking cases of Jeffrey Epstein & R. Kelly this week, we want to share some of the #hightech ways orgs are working to catch & prosecute #traffickers while protecting children. A summary of our white paper on 40 #ToolsAgainstChildTrafficking.
2/ This #whitepaper presents a list of technologies combating #childtrafficking. By providing this resource, we hope to consolidate core knowledge and enable law enforcement, government agencies, and nonprofits to select and combine strategies with maximum effectiveness.
3/ A prominent #hightech method to fight trafficking is #ImageRecognition. Orgs are able to identify victims (@thorn), create #videofingerprints to filter & #eliminateCSAM (@_project_vic, @twohathq), and scan the internet for photos of missing children in ads (@marinusai).

I’ve had an incredible week, working with incredibly talented people around #Oxford, stimulating new ideas for #research, practice and #engagement. This thanks to a #KnowledgeExchange Fellowship funded by @TORCH @UniofOxford. This week… (thread)
I met Bevan:does brilliant work engaging hard to reach teens in special school in the county. Told me his mum (also works there) is a unrecognised legend. We must value people at the coalface of work with young people,even when not qualified social workers/teachers @PopulateCoop

A month after holes in a key database used in GDP estimation were first exposed, the controversy around #India's GDP #data and statistical system has only grown. This #thread is a summary of some answers and many questions on this issue #stats #institutions #economy (1/n)
The latest to question the new GDP series is the former CEA @arvindsubraman who was also among the first to question the new series numbers when they first came out in 2015 (2/n)
His main contention, then and now, is that the new series fails to tally with other economic indicators. Others also have made this point but his recent paper (hks.harvard.edu/centers/cid/pu…) is the most systematic demonstration of that issue (3/n)

Pada tahun 2018 BPS melakukan pendataan potensi desa di seluruh Indonesia. Salah satunya adalah pendataan mengenai desa yang sebagian besar penduduknya memiliki sumber penghasilan utama dari kopi. BPS mencatat ada 2.350 desa jenis ini. #coffee #kopi #indonesia #data
Awalnya saya ingin memetakan desa-desa tersebut. Sayangnya terdapat sekitar 70-an desa yang gagal saya identifikasi karena shapefile yang saya miliki kurang update. Akan tetapi, saya berusaha untuk tetap memvisualisasikannya. #coffee #kopi #indonesia #data
Berikut ini adalah peta kecamatan-kecamatan yang memiliki minimal satu desa di mana sebagian besar penduduknya memiliki sumber penghasilan utama dari kopi. #coffee #kopi #indonesia #data

#kzoo2019 well @WestPoint_USMA were so anxious to talk, they just started on their own at 1328 sharp! Prof Rogers explains his cadets' "mission control center" or laboratory for #Military #History, working 8+ hrs/day on #medieval chronicles' paleography to #data mine 100yrs' war
Specifically looking for artillery information in skirmishes and sieges, to find what on the "laundry list" of sieges leads to #failure vs #success according to the #Database the cadets @WestPoint_USMA built collaboratively for the late #medieval & early #Renaissance. #kzoo2019
A small sample of the +90,000 #data entries - first up is Cadet Liam Kane with his findings on waging war by sieges vs by battles... taking #medieval #Military #History from generalizations to specifically-defined quantities... 47 battles to 134 sieges! #kzoo2019
