Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

Os lo prometí a principios de semana y ya es hora. Maratón de Gentleman Jack con comentarios lésbico-históricos, aquí y ahora 🔥🔥🔥
Y lo primero que voy a hacer va a ser canibalizar los comentarios que dejé hace unas semanas del primer capítulo y traerlos para acá que lo quiero todo en un solo hilo, bonito y bien peinado.
Episodio 1: Anne Vuelve a Halifax Buscando Esposa y Dinero, No Necesariamente En Ese Orden.

(Con alguna imágenes y cosas que ya comenté hace unas semanas)

Last year, I did a questionnaire focusing on Black women and science fiction. I haven't written much on it, and I couldn't figure out why until today. Today, I walk back and share the comments. #reclaimingmytime #phdchat #AcademicTwitter #blerd
Most of the responses were soooo valuable, and I know that #Blackgirlnerds are everywhere across the globe based on the 300+ responses that I received. But... there were a couple that I couldn't deal with at the time.
To keep these together, I'll use #NerdingWhileBlack ... I think it's appropriate when I think about all the times that people have been amazed that I read sci-fi and fantasy and watch anime consistently. I also think it fits since being a #nerd has often been raced as White.

Have dusted off my Nintendo Wii and playing through Super Mario Galaxy with my 8-year-old. Extreme fun and pleasure!
Such an amazingly imaginative and charming game and surprisingly good with two players
Watching a child play a classic Nintendo game for the first time is an amazing pleasure. These games are magical. Takes me back to playing Super Mario World on my friend's imported Super Famicom in 1991 #nerd

Gold: I've had a busy morning reconciling data from the CFTC website with that which I download from Bloomberg to ensure that that I’m using the right information in our charts and research. (1/3)
Gold: The reason I did this was that someone, who I respect, told me that my recent charts, shown below were wrong. After a few hours of work, I’m happy to confirm that I have the same data as is available from the CFTC website. (2/3)
Gold: Although this could have been viewed as a waste of time, it does no harm to spend some time checking the integrity of important data and I’m glad it turned out that there was no problem in my spreadsheet #nerd #DataGeek. (3/3)

And now I present: a thread based on my love of #science, #scicomm, and #animals, and the fact that I'm a huge #nerd:
The other day at the library, I got this book by Ann Tompert for my 2yo (2/?):…
The premise: an elephant and a mouse want to ride a see-saw. #Physics has other ideas, so some other animals come to help. (3/?)
