ScienceDebate.org | Presidential Science Debate 2016

Presidential Candidates 2016 Science Debate

For three cycles, presidential candidates have chosen to share their views here, as the Democratic and Republican candidates did in 2008 and 2012. In 2016, we also invited the Green and Libertarian candidates. These issues affect voters’ lives as much as the foreign policy, economic policy, and faith and values views that candidates traditionally share with journalists on the campaign trail. They deserve a public debate and broad coverage.

Monitor environmental and social change using iPhones, photo-stitching, and time lapse | Monitor Change

mounted camera

Sam Droege's idea has lots of applications to the type of work that ecologists, foresters, land managers, and environmental citizen groups do and provides an easy (and actually information dense) way of tracking long-term changes using volunteers using the smart phone that many carry in their pocket. The concept is broad and is meant to be applicable to any location you would like to create uniform documentation of change over long or short periods of time...

What is data science? - O'Reilly Media

Maps are data made into a product.

The web is full of “data-driven apps.” Almost any e-commerce application is a data-driven application. There’s a database behind a web front end, and middleware that talks to a number of other databases and data services (credit card processing companies, banks, and so on). But merely using data isn’t really what we mean by “data science.” A data application acquires its value from the data itself, and creates more data as a result.

DataKind | Mapping Poverty to Beat It

Mapping Poverty to Beat It

Did you know that three out of every ten kids in our nation’s capitol live in poverty? That’s about 40 percent more than the national average!

Well, visionary HyeSook Chung and her second in command at DC Action for Children, Gwen Rubenstein, know it. They attended our DC DataDive in March 2012 and threw down a challenge: build visualizations of traditional well-being data for kids living in DC that can be used to fight this battle against poverty.

Good scientist debunk, great scientists debunk themselves

Last week i reshared by Carl Sagan, telling us how, unlike politics and religion, scientists can change their mind. Like the universe took a cue...

... this morning i hear on Morning Edition and interview with Shankar Vedantam about how little journals support verifying science. But i was really impressed when i read A Researchers Who Provided Key Evidence For Gluten Sensitivity Have Now Thoroughly Shown That It Doesn't Exist.

Which File Extension am I?

Why do i do these trite polls? (Thanks Laura.) Somehow i turned up .tmp.

I was thinking that i'd take the poll and only post the result if i was happy with it. Well being selective like that is rather unscientific. So i will post the results even if i'm not happy with them.

You are .tmp Your existence is fleeting. Here today, gone tomorrow. Sometimes you stay longer than necessary, and take up space.
