1/🧵 Welcome to this thread on the Central Limit Theorem (CLT), a key concept in statistics! We'll cover what the CLT is, why it's essential, and how to demonstrate it using R. Grab a cup of coffee and let's dive in! ☕️ #statistics #datascience #rstats
2/📚 The Central Limit Theorem states that the distribution of sample means approaches a normal distribution as the sample size (n) increases, given that the population has a finite mean and variance. It's a cornerstone of inferential statistics! #CLT #DataScience #RStats
3/🔑 Why is the CLT important? It allows us to make inferences about population parameters using sample data. Since many statistical tests assume normality, CLT gives us the foundation to apply those tests even when the underlying population is not normally distributed. #RStats
@leahfrombklyn introduced issue of affordable housing not being accessible to everyone even once constructed & with voucher in hand. Racism & discrimination are often not acknowledged. Leah invited people to speak & 1st speaker wants to treat Black displacement as catastrophe.
10s of 1000s of Black residents left, as detected by last Census.

Where did they go?
Squatting
Streets
Left city?

Signs of gentrification:
more 911 calls
311
Quality of Life
Loitering
Noise complaints
Profiling
🧵 Lot of interest in gun raffles these days. I was interviewed yday by @wsoctv in CLT about one for a youth baseball team in Bessemer City, NC. It was a very brief story so here are some addtl thoughts.

(1) Raffles are legal. Guns are legal. Combing the two is legal. All legitimate gun raffles, including the one in NC, require winners to pass a background check in order to take possession of the gun.
(2) Charities raffle things that people value to incentivize donations. E.g., despite the harm it causes in society many groups use alcohol raffles to raise money for charity.

Meanwhile on #NCGA House Station 1 Rep. Hall's House map is being worked on - HBK-7
Durham is being worked on - Durham people, how does this House map look to you so far? @bribrough ?
@bribrough Some changes made, the districts now look like this:
@WagnerUriel1 @slpng_giants_pt @oatila Estar alerta também p/ações igualmente perigosas q passam desapercebidas e q influenciam fortemente os comportamentos de risco e #letalidade por cooptação, baseadas na oferta de #produtos e/ou #serviços ancorados) em #prazer (pacotes #viagens) ou #medo (#religião, #livros) ex.:👇🏾
@WagnerUriel1 @slpng_giants_pt @oatila Caso 1) #Pacotes de #viagens:
Como pode o pessoal de @123milhas seguir "convidando" as pessoas a escolher seu próximo roteiro de #viagem, nos seus #comerciais de TV (ex.: no canal #SpaceHD #654 na #netclaro) em pleno pico de #pandemia de #covid19, como se não houvesse amanhã, ...
@WagnerUriel1 @slpng_giants_pt @oatila @123milhas como se a vida atual fosse uma #viagem+#festa? Não é à toa que o #filme escolhido por eles @SPACE_Brasil para este domingo (21/03) é “Anjos e Demônios” com Tom Hanks. Só compreensível (mas não aceitável) se o anúncio for destinado a #negacionistas, #bolsomínions e #genocidófilos
I'm listening in to #COVID19 briefing from @NovantHealth Dr. David Priest now.
Tested- 455,000 patients since start of pandemic
Treated- over 210,000 patients
Over last 7 days they have seen declines in hospitalizations but they currently have 500 #COVID19 patients.
11% are on ventilators.
Doctors are seeing percent positive rates drop but it is too soon to call it a trend.
They remain 90-95% capacity in ICUs.
THREAD: Taking a closer look at the #ElectionDay arrest of Justin Dunn. Police arrested him for trespassing, not intimidation, despite reports he was possibly intimidating voters. He showed up to vote at a #Clt polling site with a handgun on his hip, which is legal. #Defenders
First, let's rewind. Justin Dunn is no stranger to #ELECTIONDAY He previously ran unsuccessfully for #CLTCC and #ncpol as a republican several years ago. Now, let's fast forward. Yesterday, he called himself a @realDonaldTrump supporter. #Defenders
Before we even get to why police showed up to the voting site on Doug Mayes Place yesterday, there's something else. I found this right after his arrest broke yesterday, but wanted to be sure before reporting anything. He's registered with @NCSBE as a black democrat. #Defenders
Good morning #MedTwitter! We are excited to share with you a new #MedEd Model!

Today our #Tweetorial covers Cognitive Load Theory (#CLT) with assistance from @GIMedEd!
We will define CLT & its 3 subtypes, relate CLT to ideas like stereotype threat & decision fatigue, and discuss teaching strategies that can help you optimize cognitive load for your learners.

Let’s get started!
Let’s start with a discussion of how memory works. There’s three components to memory: sensory memory, working memory, and long term memory. Longterm memory is limitless, but working memory is not.

Schemas help overcome the limits of working memory.
Celebrating Suffrage is a story that spans hundreds of years. Join us to commemorate the centuries of striving, resisting, and persisting undertaken by Americans from all walks of life to ensure everyone is able to participate in our democracy.
15th or 16th Century – The Iroquois Confederacy, one of the earliest representative bodies in North America, is founded.
July 30, 1619 – The House of Burgesses meets for the first time.
It’s a bit overdue, but I did promise to write a report on my trip to China, to attend #IPHC23. (23rd International Passive House Conference.) Here it is.... as long, and probably rambling,🧵.
I’ll break my #iphc23 report into chapters: 1. Plenary & Policy Overview, 2. Conference presentations, 3. Expo, followed by 4. An editorial. (And perhaps some highlights of the short vacation I took afterwards to #Xinjiang, if I have time.)
1. Plenary & Policy: it was clear from the first moment I landed in Beijing that this event would not be a typical #Passivhaus conference. The Chinese Gov rolled out the red carpet, not just for practitioners, but as an all out International trade event. #IPHC23
Though I decided to make the hard decision to close the @weareblktechclt space, I am grateful for the outpouring support from community and true supporters whose lives we touched. Folks who prayed for us, brought their babies into our space, gave back relentlessly to our cause.
Sometimes the hard thing about hard things is making strategic decisions to end the suffering. To extract ourselves from unnecessary hardships.

In this case, we were spending a great deal of resources and time simply trying to operate a physical space.
In an effort to activate space consistently, we created jobs, cultivated community, hosted government officials, turned compelling conversations into safe space for discourse and discovery on the Black experience in #CLT.
