Why is "Estragos Unidos" (United Havoc) trending Image
It's the Brazilians, they got meme power for sure

"Look, Simba... everything the United States touches turns into war."
"Billions to invest in climate change?

Billions to end world hunger?

Billions to invest in health?

Billions to invest in education?

Billions for war?"

I ran a (still crude) analysis of how the CDC's new Community Levels map would have performed in Puerto Rico's Omicron wave. It wouldn't have hit "High" (= masks required) until at least Dec. 27, by which point the case rate had risen by 5,800% in two weeks.

1. Case rates are my own analysis of my latest Puerto Rico Dept. of Health Bioportal data. Test sample date, 1-3 days ahead of official data. (I hope to refine this to contemporaneous data.)

2. Hospital admissions: HHS

3. Hospital occupancy: Puerto Rico DoH dashboard
In real life, I and other Puerto Rico specialist COVID-19 analysts, with much faster data than the official count, were freaking out by December 14, two weeks before the new Community Level framework would have turned orange.

El gobierno de Puerto Rico no publica todos los datos necesarios para calcular esto: cdc.gov/coronavirus/20…

Notablemente, los ingresos hospitalarios. HHS sí publica, pero no me fio mucho de los números de ellos de Puerto Rico.
Esto es una especie de blitzkrieg informático por parte del CDC. No dejan tiempo para análisis y debate público sobre si este indicador está bien diseñados. Ahora tengo que irme de corre-y-corre a implementarlos para ver cómo aplican a Puerto Rico. Suerte tengo las métricas.
Los que me leen mucho sabrán que tengo un issue contra la métrica de positividad de pruebas. Pero en este caso es un desastre que el indicador nuevo no incorpore positividad, porque una forma sencilla y maliciosa de reducir este nivel es no hacer pruebas.

Puerto Rico; Remember Gregorio Matias, the cop senator who once shot a dude for being Dominican? Today after chasing a black Infiniti Q50 with tinted windows, San Juan police arrested his 27 year-old son and a 2nd man, with drugs, ski mask, body armor and a full auto modded Glock
The other man was the driver, and he didn’t have a license. The police add that the senator’s son has an earlier criminal record.

Gregorio Matías, before the statehooders’ party appointed him senator, was a police union leader. He replaced senator Abel Nazario, who was convicted of illegally appropriating federal funds.

This scenario, for those who don’t grasp it, is what if

1. The Confederates fled to Puerto Rico in 1865, declared it capital of the Confederacy, and established a dictatorship

2. The Yauco rebels overthrew the Confederates in 1897 and declared Puerto Rico independent
And in this already rather fanciful scenario:

3. The USA claimed that because of the 1865 Confederate takeover, Puerto Rico was part of the USA, labeled the Yauco rebels as secessionists and went to war against them
What’s going on here is a rather tortured analogy for how Taiwanese independentists see the People’s Republic of China’s policy toward them.

Anti-prostitution advocates have been plastering the press with the claim that Spain "the third biggest centre for prostitution in the world, behind Thailand and Puerto Rico." The Puerto Rico bit caught my eye, so I checked... and it's made it up, I believe.
The source for the claim appears to be a blatant misreading of a p. 49 of the UNODC 2010 report "The globalization of crime," that cites sundry figures for men who claim to have paid for sex in their lifetime, and makes no attempt to rank countries.
unodc.org/unodc/en/data-… Image
The footnotes in the UNODC report seem to cite a 1998 book published by Prometheus Press. But the citation is wrong; it's a book **chapter** in a compilation of articles.

Are all these sundry sources comparable and exhaustive? I don't think so. ImageImage
