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!

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

Data Needs A Home:

🧬The population of every DNA word is equivalent to the population of its reverse-complement DNA word in the SINGLE-STRANDED human genome

🧬Population count of 1.4 trillion DNA words

🧬Does anyone want a copy of this data before files are deleted?

Seismic Shadow Zone - How do P & S waves give evidence for a liquid outer core? (THREAD) iris.edu/hq/inclass/ani… #earthquake #seismology @NSF_GEO
The concept of a seismic shadow zone as a global effect of an earthquake is an oversimplification that ignores a broad array of refracted, reflected and defracted seismic waves that propagate through the earth, as shown in this gif.
Let's focus on direct compressional P- and shearing S-waves. These are the body waves that take the most direct routes within the earth and create shadow zones.

An #earthquake sends P waves in all directions, refracting along boundaries with depth causing curving paths.

There's so much more that health is missing through these few years of development.

So much more can be done through #communication and #data mining.

What exactly is drawing health back when other discipline have skyrocketed their fields in tech?

#HealthForAll #WHD2019
While Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacies and other health professionals need to do more through accumulating capabilities outside the core health discipline to take courses starting with maybe critical thinking or design thinking. Learn tech skills in analytics etc.

#HealthForAll
Preventive health can be finally the major health market when predictive analytics is capitalized on.

However, we still need a deep EHR system to gather enough data. These data are everywhere but putting them in a place is important for growth.

A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

The linked paper above is one older perspective. It was written just as the age of networking was beginning and published two years before the advent of Smalltalk-80 that brought in a new paradigm of Object Oriented Programming were objects communicate via passing of messages.
Functional Programming makes rather massive claims that it is somehow fundamentally different than the procedural programming that came before it. Both are based upon functions calling other functions with the passing of arguments as in Lambda Calculus mathematics. 🤔 Not new.

For the first time ever, movers and shakers met to discuss #data needs, available #policy options and the opportunities for different sectors in the transition towards #healthy and #sustainable #foodsystems in the #Baltic region

#nordicsolutions norden.org/en/news/baltic…
Participants jointly mapped forces at play in transition to more sustainable & healthy diets in Baltic region which ensured:
🌟High levels of participation and local ownership
🌟Common narrative & theory of change
🌟Better understanding of priority areas + system leverage points
With agreement on the urgency to act and the system leverage points, 3 joint projecs were conceived:
🍽️🌍 Define & develop criteria for sustainble healthy Baltic diet
💻👩‍🔬 Coordinate existing data across the region
🌬️💡Create Baltic future food “lab” for new innovative ideas

For those who asked, here's a quick recap of my comments from the plenary on 'A #Data Driven World – Can we Ensure #Privacy?' at @OECD #GoingDigital. 1. Innovation is not in opposition to privacy: innovation *in* privacy is a huge opportunity, and a competitive advantage. 1/n
2. Framing and narratives matter. Seeing #data only as an asset (oil, gold, currency, etc) ignores implicit risks. Also seeing it as radioactive (with a half-life), an externality, a ticking time bomb, a liability, etc helps to locate it in a larger ecosystem. 2/n #GoingDigital
3. To a tech hammer, every socioeconomic problem looks like a tech nail. Informational asymmetries and power imbalances require attention to complex structural issues, not just on deployment of one size fits all tech solutions in a box. 3/n #GoingDigital

I've downloaded my personal data from Google thanks to #GDPR portability. I've made 71,600 searches since 2011, almost 25 searches per day, everyday for 8 years 😳 I've analyzed my data quickly, see what I've found in this thread ⤵️ #Google #data
First thing. I've looked at how many searches I've done by month. I was expecting an increase over time, by this isn't the case and I don't really know why. I was on holiday abroad during my lowest months. In April 2014 I did a staggering 1638 search queries, 52 searches / day
I looked at when I googled by weekday and hour and as I was baffled: it's almost perfectly distributed by weekday. I search the most on Sundays and at the beginning and end of work day. Times are in UTC and I lived almost always in Europe/Paris (UTC+1 or +2) so it must be shifted
