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

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.

Hello #BIWisdom tribe, and welcome to our weekly discussion.
This week on #BIWisdom I’m excited to discuss #skills for #data and #Analytics.
This is a favorite #BIWisdom topic of mine, because prior to my #Analytics journey I was a teacher in the UK. I’ve written about it a little on LinkedIn linkedin.com/pulse/positive…

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

0/ The last day in February is here. Already over 15% through the year!

As always, there was a ton going on in the #blockchain/#crypto space today. Let's look back at some events from the past 24 hours!
1/ 🔲 Square, the payments giant led by Twitter's Jack Dorsey, reported its 4Q18 earnings. In total, users of Square's Cash App sold >$166M worth of #bitcoin in 2018 and $52.5M in 4Q. Considering the timeframe, that's some very solid QoQ growth! Graphic from @TheBlock__.
2/ 🤓 @BinanceResearch published an in-depth research report on @IOStoken [ $IOST ], a #blockchain-as-a-service platform focussed on mass adoption. Love this initiative from @Binance. info.binance.com/en/research/IO…

This #BIWisdom Friday I'd like to explore concepts of a #DataCulture. What do *you* think it is? How is it sustained by #Success and #Value? Does support from #BILeadership with a #CDO help? How important are the #Data #skills (maybe especially Literacy)? Join is at 1PM EST
Just a few minutes until this week's #BIWisdom. Join us to discuss #Data #culture . What might it be, how do you use it, how can you value it, or know if it is working.
Happy #BIWisdom to us all. I hope everyone had a fine week.

Bir yazılım geliştiricinin bilmesi gerekenlerle ilgili 15 maddelik flood geliyor.. Mümkün olduğunca fazla keywordü bir araya toplamaya çalıştım.
Hadi Başlıyoruz!

#Developer #Software #Java #code #kod #yazılım #development #computer #bilgisayar #tool #PC #IT #web #tech #data
1-Temel veri yapıları (linkedList, map, tree vb) ve temel algoritmalar (sıralama, arama vb)

Sıfırdan kodlama ihtiyacınız büyük ihtimalle hiç olmayacak. Ancak ihtiyaç anında doğru yerde doğrusunu seçebilmek için o veri yapısının veya algoritmanın nasıl çalıştığını bilmeniz şart
2- Network Temelleri

OSI Modelini ve 7 katmanı; temel protokolleri(#TCP-IP, TCP-UDP, #HTTP, #FTP), güvenlik protokollerini(#HTTPS, #SFTP, #SSL), monitoring protokolleri(#SNMP, ICMP) bilmekte fayda var. Ayrıca ağ ekipmanlarının görevlerini tanımak ve 7Layer yerlerini bilmek lazım

Hey, did you know you can access aggregate voter data from Florida's elections? dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
The data are not user friendly. You download a zip file, which contains .txt files for each county. You can copy and past into a spreadsheet or upload into a statistical software package. #OpenAccess #Elections dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
Weird thing though: the aggregate voter information is there for most of the counties, but NOT PALM BEACH @pbpost . The # registered in each precinct is missing. So are the # of votes for each candidate. Just zeros. At least as of today.

0/ Can you believe we're already 10% through the year!? When you consider all that's transpired in the #crypto/#blockchain so far in 2019, that fact becomes less surprising.

Below, a 17-part thread based on what went down over the past day or so. Helping you stay informed!

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

legalevolution.org/2019/02/pay-ho…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

Week #5: #Measles & #MMR

Clear topic of the week was measles (so many convos w/ concerned parents this week!) so this week’s thread is on the MMR vaccine

#VaccinesWork #VaxFactsFebruary

@Dr_ScottK @PedsGeekMD @DrJaimeFriedman @DrPanMD

#PediatricTeachingTipsAndPearls

[1/?]
Brief overview on #measles:

Highly #contagious - 90% of susceptible (i.e. non-vaccinated) persons will become ill if exposed

- Fever
- 3 C's (cough, conjunctivitis, coryza)
- #Koplik spots
- Rash (starts on face & spreads downward)

Sources for thread: @CDCgov & @WHO

[2/?]
Complications from #measles:

Ear infxn (1 in 10) - can cause hearing loss
Pneumonia (1 in 20) - most common cause of death
Encephalitis (1 in 1000)
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (4-11 in 100,000)

1 in 4 will be hospitalized
1-2 in 1,000 will die
