#FactChecking 18 premières min de #Cashinvestigation : présentation d'un essai à l'Université de Maastricht où 4 volontaires ont ingéré pendant 2 semaines 300g/j de charcuterie (soit 2kg de charcuterie/semaine ‼️) 🥩🥓

Exposition peu réaliste et méthodologie faible ?

▪️Consommation de charcuteries dans l'enquête nationale INCA3 :
0-10 ans : 17,6g/j
Ados : 20,4g/j

Utilisation d'un test des comètes avec l'eau fécale pour évaluer les cassures induites directement par un agent génotoxique : test +

❌doses peu réalistes

THREAD - so here is a list of the 5 or so most common myths and misconceptions by the general public and fellow non-specialist scientists alike that I encounter in my field of research.
#mythbusting #Factchecking
*MYTH No. 1*: the time, location and size of impending earthquakes can be predicted accurately on many occasions.
No. Anyone who says they can is a total charlatan. Forecasting (years->decades) is getting better, but still not successful on short timescales (i.e. days to months)
*MYTH No. 2*: Seismic monitoring networks and government agencies hide seismic data & earthquake parameters from the public.
No. Anyone who says so is a paranoid conspiracy theorist. It is in no one's interest to hide this data and scientists aren't the best at keeping secrets.

Ceux qui me lisent ici ont l'habitude de me voir écrire que les centrales à charbon allemandes tuent, chaque année, plus que l'accident de Tchernobyl. Voici donc comment j'arrive à cette donnée. #Thread #FactChecking
Pour cela il faut plusieurs ingrédients : la quantité d'électricité produite par les centrales allemandes, la mortalité du charbon/lignite, et le nombre de morts de Tchernobyl.
Pour les premières données, je suis allé les chercher chez @EU_Eurostat, ici pour être plus précis :

Vicious smears against Tulsi Gabbard👇😡
"Some of the headlines covering my announcement (the first Hindu American to run for president).... have instead fomented suspicion, fear, and religious bigotry about not only me, but my supporters."~@TulsiGabbard
medium.com/@TulsiGabbard/…
An earlier version of The Intercept's article by Soumya Shankar searched #TulsiGabbard's donor list for "names ... of AMERICANS of Hindu origin to show Gabbard’s broad base of support in the Hindu-American community, and question the motives of those individual political donors😡

So I've been following this #WilkinsTheCon story unfold, and It's gotten me thinking quite a bit about the role of media in validating "questionable entrepreneurs".

NB: This thread is based on verified reporting of #WilkinsFadhili's activities; not online bashment.
I followed @RuthAmbogo's thread, noting that she used @StandardKenya's article to convince a friend that #WilkinsFadhili was legit...much like the multiple media reports were used to validate #HeshanDeSilva's fictitious claims.

#WilkinsTheCon
@BD_Africa, a publication I deeply respect, also featured him in the #Top40Under40 list...even @SafaricomPLC had him as a @BLAZEKenya mentor.

All these, especially the media coverage, aided #WilkinsFadhili drive his agenda...

Just finished reading @DerSPIEGEL's report on how Claas #Relotius duped them, and all I can say is #factchecking clearly means something different in Germany, because most of what he got away with never would have flown at a US magazine with fact-checkers. spiegel.de/international/…
"Every text printed in DER SPIEGEL," they say, "goes through a thorough fact-checking and vetting process to review the accuracy of every fact stated in an article." As far as I can tell from their mea culpa, this vetting process is limited to what can be Googled from Hamburg.
I've been preparing fact files for 19 years, and they always include phone numbers and e-mail addresses for all my sources, copies of any documents I cite or relied on, and often photos of signs I describe. Translators and fixers? They get called too.

#FactChecking Affirmation de @ActuelMoyen : "c'est le monde arabe qui a le premier redécouvert l'héritage grec " est une affirmation sur l'Histoire des idées largement contestable et contestée :
1- Ce débat avait déjà éclaté avec la parution de l'ouvrage "Aristote au mont Saint-Michel" de l'historien Sylvain Gouguenheim qui apporte des contre-arguments à votre affirmation : tout d'abord le monde arabo-musulman n'a pass été hellénisé, ni culturellement ni linguistiquement
2- D'autre part l'historien Raymond Le Coz précise « Il faut bien se rendre compte que tous les savants de l'Islam n'ont jamais eu accès aux textes anciens originaux, tous leurs travaux ayant été effectués à partir de traductions. »

Le dernier livre d'Eric #Zemmour (Un destin français, @AlbinMichel) consacre un chapitre aux #croisades. Aujourd'hui on va essayer de montrer (calmement...) que ce chapitre repose sur des contre-vérités. A dérouler ⬇️ ! #histoire #factchecking #medievaltwitter
Deux remarques avant de commencer. D'abord, on a choisi de ne pas parler de la vision politique qui sous-tend ce livre. On voulait uniquement parler des faits, càd faire notre travail d'historien.ne.s ! Hommage à @MathildeLarrere @laurencedecock1 @NaudinChristoph
Ensuite, Twitter impose de faire court : pour les références précises, les pages des citations de Zemmour, les sources que l'on cite, etc... on vous renvoie à l'article (cf en bas de ce thread). Vos questions et remarques (bienveillantes) sont comme tjrs les bienvenues 🙂

#piazzapulita
@pbecchi afferma che l’Italia ha accumulato negli anni un altissimo avanzo primario
@CottarelliCPI contesta questa affermazione (segue)
#piazzapulita i dati del FMI ci dicono che dal 2001 al 2016 l’Italia ha registrato un avanzo primario medio dell’1,25% del PIL. Il più alto di tutta l’eurozona ed inferiore solo a quello del Belgio (1,59%) @pbecchi @CottarelliCPI (segue)
#piazzapulita ma è l’osservazione del valore assoluto dell’avanzo primario che più sgomenta. Sempre nello stesso periodo l’Italia ha accumulato un avanzo primario totale di oltre 300 miliardi il più alto di tutta l’eurozona @pbecchi @CottarelliCPI (segue)
