New from me: you know that Jesse Singal misinterpreted the data from a 2013 study.

But he got more wrong than he has admitted, and the conclusions he drew reflect his lack of experience in data analysis and his lax journalistic ethics.…
Jesse already admitted that he made a mistake in lumping "lost to follow-up" participants in with the category of "desisters". And while he has updated at least one piece that relied heavily on this analysis, he did not retract the conclusions.
He should have, however. Because Singal is publishing a book on the reproducability crisis in psychology, so you would think that he would be able to sight-identify a glaring reproduceability error in a paper.

I just discovered something new about how badly Singal botched his analysis of this study and by gods I am going to blog about it later.
oh my god i cannot reproduce the results in this table
like there is no way to combine 15 integers ranging from 15 to 18 inclusive such that their arithmetic mean equals 16.03. 1/15 is 0.06666....

I’m trying to stay out of this but I can’t, so I will make this direct statement:

- Jesse Singal has no medical qualifications to assess the health of a child
- Even if he did, that child is not under his care and it would be unethical for him to do so
- Jesse Singal has no qualifications as a bio-statistician
- Even if he did, publishing his analysis, which he frequently gets wrong, in a non-peer review medium would be unethical
- Jesse Singal has a history of failing to timely correct factually incorrect statements he publishes and when he does he does so in a manner with far less engagement than his original claims

How to utterly screw up a vaccination rollout, Germany edition younger than 60 can voluntarily receive the AstraZenec
In case there’s missing context, it was only last month that German officials were saying NOT to give AstraZeneca to people OVER 65
Love to hinge a national vaccination strategy on the 60-65 demographic with a vaccine that you have utterly blown the messaging on with no proof

So here's how the COVID sitch in Germany is right now:

Back in like, Jan/Feb, the cases were really bad. Like 200/100k weekly incidence. So the lockdowns got strengthened and the cases started going down, and that was good.

They got as low as 50 and that was good!
But then people started talking about a "Lockerung," which despite having "Lock" in the word actually means "relaxation". Everyone with half a working braincell thought this was a bad idea.
But the economy and politics people, who don't have half a working braincell, said "but the economy!!!!!!11" and so they relaxed the rules.

Completely predictably, the cases went up.

They are now over 100/100k weekly.

This is bad.
