QSS: the Intersection of Data Science and Liberal Arts @ Emory
Traditional Data Science skills (statistics, mathematics, and computing) are increasingly important and essential to most disciplines and careers. As a result, the demand for applied quantitative training with a substantive focus is strong and growing. While most quantitative training at the undergraduate level remains concentrated in math and statistics departments, our interdisciplinary and applied focus is designed to broaden access to those skills. The Institute for Quantitative Theory and Methods promotes the teaching, learning, and use of quantitative analysis across all disciplines.

Click the below timestamps to navigate the video. 00:00:09 Introduction by Professor Jared Tanner 00:01:38 Professor Mark Girolami: "Probabilistic Numerical Computation: A New Concept?" 00:54:48 Q&A Lecture blurb: The vast amounts of data in many different forms becoming available to politicians, policy makers, technologists, and scientists of every hue presents tantalising opportunities for making advances never before considered feasible. Yet with these apparent opportunities has come an increase in the complexity of the mathematics required to exploit this data. These sophisticated mathematical representations are much more challenging to analyse, and more and more computationally expensive to evaluate. This is a particularly acute problem for many tasks of interest, such as making predictions since these will require the extensive use of numerical solvers for linear algebra, optimization, integration or differential equations. These methods will tend to be slow, due to the complexity of the models, and this will potentially lead to solutions with high levels of uncertainty. This talk will introduce our contributions to an emerging area of research defining a nexus of applied mathematics, statistical science and computer science, called “probabilistic numerics”. The aim is to consider numerical problems from a statistical viewpoint, and as such provide numerical methods for which numerical error can be quantified and controlled in a probabilistic manner. This philosophy will be illustrated on problems ranging from predictive policing via crime modelling to computer vision, where probabilistic numerical methods provide a rich and essential quantification of the uncertainty associated with such models and their computation. Bio After graduation from the University of Glasgow, Mark Girolami spent the first ten years of his career with IBM as an Engineer. After this he undertook, on a part time basis, a PhD in Statistical Signal Processing whilst working in a Scottish Technical College. He then went on rapidly to hold senior professorial positions at the University of Glasgow, and University College London.

RSS President's address 2015 - Statistics: a Data Science for the 21st Century
Peter Diggle President, Royal Statistical Society The rise of data science could be seen as a potential threat to the long-term status of the statistics discipline. Peter will firstly argue that, although there is a threat, there is also a much greater opportunity to re-emphasise the universal relevance of statistical method to the interpretation of data, and he will give a short historical outline of the increasingly important links between statistics and information technology. He will summarise several recent research projects, through which he hopes to demonstrate that statistics make an essential, but incomplete, contribution to the merging field of 'electronic health' research. Finally, Peter will offer personal thoughts on how statistics might best be organised in a research-led university, on what we should teach our students and on some issues broadly related to data science where the Royal Statistical Society can take a lead.

AIG: Data Science in the Insurance Industry and Financial Services (CXOTalk #259)
Murli Buluswar, former Chief Science Officer at AIG, and currently Senior Executive Advisor the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), speaks with CXOTalk co-hosts Michael Li, CEO of The Data Incubator, and Michael Krigsman about data science and innovation in the insurance industry. How can insurance and financial services companies adapt and thrive in a world of data and digital disruption? For more information, see https://www.cxotalk.com/episode/aig-data-science-insurance-industry Buluswar is a trailblazing and innovative leader. Since 2014, he’s helped AIG evolve from a ‘knowing culture’ to a ‘learning culture,’ from an organization reliant on human judgment to a firm that benefits from its institutional risk insights manifested through data models. Currently, he is a Senior Executive Advisor at the Boston Consulting Group From the transcript: Murli Buluswar: The way I would reframe that is you help them fundamentally recognize that this is not just a separate pillar that you should be thinking of as being incremental to how you will shape your business strategy. These competencies are in the very near future or, in fact, even in the here and now. In effect, a mitochondria that will shape the energy and the life that your firm will have in terms of its sustainability in a world of data and tech driven disruption. The challenge then is that typically in many of these large institutions, you've got leaders who have risen to those senior positions on the basis of historic experiences, which are less relevant if you extrapolate them to the future. And so it really does become an issue around having the humility to develop much more of a learning mindset; and recognizing that the more ambitious you are in terms of really re-sculpting and reshaping your competitive positioning, the more you have to be willing to break glass based on the insights that you achieved through data science. Michael Li: You need a broad swath of the organization to understand the value of data, how you use data--think about some of the issues that Murli and I were just talking about earlier--that really embrace taking time to have their employees learn about data science and big data. On the cultural side, actually, I'd be curious, Murli, to ask you this question. I think one of the things that's maybe unique about insurance or banking is that there is kind of a legacy of data around the actuarials, around the statisticians. How does that change the dynamic of creating a data culture when you have a legacy group that's somewhat already steeped in this? Murli Buluswar: I think there are two parts to that, Michael. One is, how does that change decision-making today, and how should that change decision-making tomorrow? If one were to zoom out, in general I think the actuarial function, the profession, and the exams have not embraced, from my point of view, the power of data science in its totality the way perhaps they should. Maybe they will, looking into the coming few years. The other piece of it is, if you disaggregate the entire value chain of insurance, there's data science that can be applied to many, many, many aspects of it that can fundamentally shape the sophistication, timeliness, [and] granularity of decision-making in ways that the industry could not have imagined a decade ago. To me, the role of data science is very, very widespread, even if one were to dodge the traditional domain of the actuarial sciences. Where I'm hoping the industry is going to head toward is, rather than have this mindset of creating rigid silos or pillars, see that the competencies are interchangeable and they're one in the same. Let's actually move to a world where we're challenging; we understand our assumptions and are challenging those assumptions to shape the caliber, effectiveness, and efficiency of decision-making as opposed to hanging our hats on what titles we've got, what professional credentials we've got, or what academic experiences we have because those are an interesting starting point, but are really not particularly relevant in a world where everything around us is changing at a more profound pace than ever before. Michael Li: With the actuarials, I think that a lot of the really farsighted ones, the ones who are really looking to the future, seem to really understand this and are embracing a lot of these new techniques around data science, around big data, really looking to challenge the assumptions that maybe their own discipline has ingrained into them through indoctrination. [They're] really leveraging the existing knowledge that they have, this really strong knowledge of probability and statistics, and then seeing how they can apply that to the data science, which of course is very rich in probability and stats.

View Slides https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4IAKVDZz_JUczRSd0NucjlhT00 Lecture Abstract Once data are scraped, wrangled, linked, merged, and analyzed, what information do they reveal and can we trust the resulting conclusions? In this presentation, we define and review data issues relating to the analysis and interpretation of observational data from the field of epidemiology and consider implications for data science, especially regarding the goal of moving from big data to knowledge. Specifically, we explore concepts of bias, confounding, effect modification, and missing/mismeasured data as applied to data science. We provide an analytic context based on sampling concepts and explore relevant literature and tools from epidemiology, biostatistics, computer science, and data science. As with many issues in data science, the full applicability of the concepts is very much a work in progress and present multiple opportunities for future development. About the Speaker Lance A. Waller, Ph.D. is Rollins Professor and Chair of the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University. He is a member of the National Academy of Science Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics. His research involves the development of statistical methods for geographic data including applications in environmental justice, epidemiology, disease surveillance, spatial cluster detection, conservation biology, and disease ecology. His research appears in biostatistical, statistical, environmental health, and ecology journals and in the textbook Applied Spatial Statistics for Public Health Data (2004, Wiley).

Systems Biology: A Short Overview
Predicting the outcome of an observable phenomenon belongs to the key disciplines of natural sciences. A chemist can precisely calculate the temperature increase when dehydrating sugars upon contact with sulfuric acid. A physicist can predict the force needed to leverage a rock of a certain weight. But for a biologist, the situation is different. It is an excessively difficult and time-consuming task to perform detailed calculations on biological systems. For a long time, it was even believed that a mysterious vital spark drives all living entities. So what makes calculations in biology so different from other sciences? Living entities belong to the most complex systems in existence. At the most basic level, a single cell comprises huge numbers of molecules and is structured in a very densely organized space, All those molecules participate in a numerous biochemical reactions, highly regulated enzymes drive these reactions, and external signals interfere with the cell, in the form of hormones, drugs, or variations in the amount of nutrition available. It is not possible for the human mind to keep track of so many processes in parallel. So, how can we calculate effects of cellular functions? The most viable option is to construct highly detailed computer models that facilitate visualization and statistics to see trends, and mathematical modeling to precisely calculate interactions of components to predict system behavior. In order to be reliable and diagnostically conclusive, these models need to be constricted to real-world conditions by incorporating physicochemical constraints. However, the complexity of the interactions can still be overwhelming. Yet, making biological phenomena predictable is worthwhile. By simulating entire cellular systems we could: Gain a better understanding of the system in its entirety. Calculate how much medicine a patient should take in order to avoid adverse effects, or Determine potential weaknesses of harmful pathogens as a precursor for drug development. To this end, the University of Tuebingen and the University of California, San Diego, established a joint project with the aim of developing new computational methods that make it possible to model all levels of biological systems. As the result, a wide range of software and database solutions have been created that make building and analyzing systems biology models much more straightforward.

Economics and Probabilistic Machine Learning
David Blei of Columbia University opens the Becker Friedman Institute’s conference on machine learning in economics with an overview of how probabilistic machine learning techniques can be applied in economics.
What is INFORMATION THEORY? What does INFORMATION THEORY mean? INFORMATION THEORY meaning. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Information theory studies the quantification, storage, and communication of information. It was originally proposed by Claude E. Shannon in 1948 to find fundamental limits on signal processing and communication operations such as data compression, in a landmark paper entitled "A Mathematical Theory of Communication". Now this theory has found applications in many other areas, including statistical inference, natural language processing, cryptography, neurobiology, the evolution and function of molecular codes, model selection in ecology, thermal physics, quantum computing, linguistics, plagiarism detection, pattern recognition, and anomaly detection. A key measure in information theory is "entropy". Entropy quantifies the amount of uncertainty involved in the value of a random variable or the outcome of a random process. For example, identifying the outcome of a fair coin flip (with two equally likely outcomes) provides less information (lower entropy) than specifying the outcome from a roll of a die (with six equally likely outcomes). Some other important measures in information theory are mutual information, channel capacity, error exponents, and relative entropy. Applications of fundamental topics of information theory include lossless data compression (e.g. ZIP files), lossy data compression (e.g. MP3s and JPEGs), and channel coding (e.g. for Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)). The field is at the intersection of mathematics, statistics, computer science, physics, neurobiology, and electrical engineering. Its impact has been crucial to the success of the Voyager missions to deep space, the invention of the compact disc, the feasibility of mobile phones, the development of the Internet, the study of linguistics and of human perception, the understanding of black holes, and numerous other fields. Important sub-fields of information theory include source coding, channel coding, algorithmic complexity theory, algorithmic information theory, information-theoretic security, and measures of information. Information theory studies the transmission, processing, utilization, and extraction of information. Abstractly, information can be thought of as the resolution of uncertainty. In the case of communication of information over a noisy channel, this abstract concept was made concrete in 1948 by Claude Shannon in his paper "A Mathematical Theory of Communication", in which "information" is thought of as a set of possible messages, where the goal is to send these messages over a noisy channel, and then to have the receiver reconstruct the message with low probability of error, in spite of the channel noise. Shannon's main result, the noisy-channel coding theorem showed that, in the limit of many channel uses, the rate of information that is asymptotically achievable is equal to the channel capacity, a quantity dependent merely on the statistics of the channel over which the messages are sent. Information theory is closely associated with a collection of pure and applied disciplines that have been investigated and reduced to engineering practice under a variety of rubrics throughout the world over the past half century or more: adaptive systems, anticipatory systems, artificial intelligence, complex systems, complexity science, cybernetics, informatics, machine learning, along with systems sciences of many descriptions. Information theory is a broad and deep mathematical theory, with equally broad and deep applications, amongst which is the vital field of coding theory. Coding theory is concerned with finding explicit methods, called codes, for increasing the efficiency and reducing the error rate of data communication over noisy channels to near the Channel capacity. These codes can be roughly subdivided into data compression (source coding) and error-correction (channel coding) techniques. In the latter case, it took many years to find the methods Shannon's work proved were possible. A third class of information theory codes are cryptographic algorithms (both codes and ciphers). Concepts, methods and results from coding theory and information theory are widely used in cryptography and cryptanalysis. See the article ban (unit) for a historical application. Information theory is also used in information retrieval, intelligence gathering, gambling, statistics, and even in musical composition.

What is SPATIAL ECONOMETRICS, What does SPATIAL ECONOMETRICS mean, SPATIAL ECONOMETRICS meaning, SPATIAL ECONOMETRICS definition, SPATIAL ECONOMETRICS explanation Spatial econometrics is the field where spatial analysis and econometrics intersect. The term “spatial econometrics” was introduced for the first time by the Belgian economist Jean Paelinck (universally recognised as the father of the discipline) in the general address he delivered to the annual meeting of the Dutch Statistical Association in May 1974 (Paelinck and Klaassen, 1979). In general, econometrics differs from other branches of statistics in focusing on theoretical models, whose parameters are estimated using regression analysis. Spatial econometrics is a refinement of this, where either the theoretical model involves interactions between different entities, or the data observations are not truly independent. Thus, models incorporating spatial auto-correlation or neighborhood effects can be estimated using spatial econometric methods. Such models are common in regional science, real estate economics, education economics, housing market and many others. Adopting a more general view, in the by-law of the Spatial Econometrics Association, the discipline is defined as the set of “models and theoretical instruments of spatial statistics and spatial data analysis to analyse various economic effects such as externalities, interactions, spatial concentration and many others” (Spatial Econometrics Association, 2006). Recent developments tend to include also methods and models from social network econometrics. Source: Wikipedia.org

Towards extreme-environment robotics
At Keio University, the Ishigami Laboratory, in the Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Mechanical Engineering, is investigating robotic mobility systems. The main mission of this group is to perform fundamental and applied research for application to extreme environments, notably lunar and planetary rovers. Q "In our lab, we focus on field robotics that works for extreme environments. For example, we investigate theinteraction mechanics between robots and sandy surfaces, taking into account "off-the-road locomotion."Also, because such robots would be deployed in unknown environments, we also work on vision systems such as cameras and laser rangefinders." In this research, there are three key concepts: vehicle-terrain interaction mechanics, autonomous mobility systems, and robotic device development. In vehicle-terrain interaction mechanics, the researchers analyze vehicle behavior using a dynamic simulator. They're also developing vehicle-slip compensation systems and in-wheel-sensor systems. Q "In the study of interaction mechanics, we first focus on a wheel itself using a "single-wheel testbed." We put just one wheel on the testbed, and perform experimental runs to obtain wheel force data under different sets of slip parameters. Meanwhile, we numerically calculate wheel force based on a wheel-sand interaction model we developed. Then, we compare the experimental results with the numerical ones, so we can evaluate how valid the interaction model is. Applying this approach to a whole robot-vehicle system, it is possible to simulate how the robot behaves dynamically in an unknown environment. That's the key approach in this research." Q "Sand flow investigation has received especially close attention in recent years. In our lab, of course, we've recently taken such an approach, called particle image velocimetry, or PIV, which has been widely used in fluid mechanics. PIV enables us to clearly determine the sand flow, helping to develop a well-defined interaction model." In the area of autonomous mobility systems, the Ishigami Lab is working on environment recognition using laser rangefinders and camera images, as well as robotlocalization, path planning, teleoperation, and integrated sensory processing systems. Q "For example, in an unknown environment, there aren't any road signs, saying 'there's an obstacle here,' or 'turn right at the next intersection.' Such obstacles should be detected by onboard cameras, or laser rangefinders which operate based on the time-of-flight principle (measuring the time from a laser emission to detection of the reflected laser.). In our research, we effectively utilize such devices to obtain 3D distance data or 3D environment information. Based on these data, the robot itself decides how to travel. Such systems are called autonomous mobility systems." Q "One typical point of our lab is, I would say, we're focusing on mechanics as well as autonomous mobility, applying both hardware and software approaches.. In general, one lab has one specific point of interest for research, and looks more deeply into that, but in our lab, we work on mechanics and also on autonomous mobility systems, so we pursue several topics in parallel. Robots consist of integrated technology, so we consider them as total systems. In addition, another feature of our research is, we consider that field tests are extremely important. We actually take our robots to outdoor environments such as volcanic regions on Izu Oshima and Mt. Aso, and operate them in rough terrain, to test how they act in actual environments." Q "The field of robotics comprises a variety of technologies. So, rather than sticking to a single academic discipline, we'd like students to do research from a broad perspective."

The Future of Computational Journalism
Data science and algorithms are reshaping how the news is discovered and reported At a recent event bringing together voices from the School of Engineering and the School of Humanities and Sciences, two Stanford professors engaged in a moderated discussion about the evolving field of computational journalism. Jay Hamilton, the Hearst Professor of Communication and director of the Journalism Program, and Maneesh Agrawala, professor of computer science and director of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation, shared their complementary perspectives on the many questions facing journalism today and where they might lead tomorrow. The conversation centered on how converging social currents and disruptive technologies have roiled newsrooms on the local, national and international levels. Computational journalism, Hamilton said, can refer to the set of tools that journalists use to discover, tell or distribute stories. But it’s also “reporting by, through and about algorithms.” The Associated Press, for example, writes about 4,000 stories by algorithm each time companies’ quarterly earnings reports come out — a massive increase from the 300 or so companies that can be covered by human reporters. In addition to such computer-assisted reporting, Agrawala spoke about how computers can be used to synthesize audio and video stories and create visualizations that provide critical context for data. The two professors also spoke about the great need for journalists to find ways to hold algorithms — like the ones that curate our newsfeeds or influence public policies — accountable. “One of the questions that we face as a society is understanding some of the algorithms that are delivering information to us,” Agrawala said. Hamilton agreed, adding that the biggest problem he sees facing journalism right now are the stories that get missed due to the collapse of the business models of local newspapers. “If you look across the country, there are city councils that don’t have a reporter covering them, there are school boards voting and making decisions and nobody is watching. So I think that’s something where computational journalism can really make an impact,” he said. “If you have a strong interest in engineering and data, try to help us figure out the stories that go untold, especially at the local level.”
Tech Driven Education Reform A Model for Simultaneously Improving Retention and Performance in STEM
Presented by Dr. Rob Petros, Assistant Professor, University of North Texas A major overhaul of our higher education system is desperately needed to increase interest and competence in STEM disciplines. Currently only 40% of entering college students that declare STEM majors complete degrees in STEM disciplines. The efflux of students from STEM majors has been attributed in part to the teaching style that has been used in most lower-level science courses, which is a traditional slideshow and lecture format. This style of teaching has persisted even in the presence of convincing discipline-based education research data that other strategies can increase student attainment of learning outcomes. Engaged, learner-focused activities transparently linked to student learning outcomes have been especially effective for improving student learning in large enrollment classes; however, implementation can be difficult because of the significant time needed to conduct such activities while still covering all the required material and because of the difficulty in demonstrating student attainment of learning outcomes. One way to create the time needed to include engaged learning activities in classroom activities is to make use of recent innovations in technology to flip the classroom. The UNT NextGen course redesign is an outcome-based model that is predicated on the seamless alignment of course objectives with instructional strategies and assessment, which allows for student attainment of course goals to be explicitly quantified. Outcome based course redesign is providing valid quantitative and qualitative measures of student understanding, content mastery and synthesis, the model and best practices for which can be applied to a wide variety of courses to foster institutional change. The model also facilitates identification (and redesign) of areas where student attainment is low. This presentation will use the NextGen redesign of a large enrollment (~200 students) organic course as an example of best practices to improve student performance, retention, and interest in all STEM disciplines. Retention rates as high as 90% have been achieved without sacrificing student performance. (Recorded on Tuesday, January 27th, 2015)

economics: National income(gdp,ndp,gnp,nnp,etc) in hindi
basis of economics ... national incone ,GDP,GNP,etc poverty measurement What is economics? Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Why do women earn less than men? How can data help us understand the world? Why do we ignore information that could help us make better decisions? What causes recessions? Economics can help us answer these questions. Below, we’ve provided links to short articles that illustrate what economics is and how it connects to our everyday lives. Economics can be defined in a few different ways. It’s the study of scarcity, the study of how people use resources and respond to incentives, or the study of decision-making. It often involves topics like wealth and finance, but it’s not all about money. Economics is a broad discipline that helps us understand historical trends, interpret today’s headlines, and make predictions about the coming years. Economics ranges from the very small to the very large. The study of individual decisions is called microeconomics. The study of the economy as a whole is called macroeconomics. A microeconomist might focus on families’ medical debt, whereas a macroeconomist might focus on sovereign debt. What do economists do? Economists have all kinds of jobs, such as professors, government advisors, consultants, and private sector employees. Using theoretical models or empirical data, they evaluate programs, study human behavior, and explain social phenomena. And, their contributions inform everything from public policy to household decisions. Economics intersects many disciplines. Its applications include health, gender, the environment, education, and immigration. You can check out the field’s classification system (called JEL codes) for more topics that economists study. Why should I care about economics? Economics affects everyone’s lives. Learning about economic concepts can help you to understand the news, make financial decisions, shape public policy, and see the world in a new way. If you are a student, you might be wondering about how much economists earn or how to apply to graduate school in economics. We have resources on everything from learning more about economics to preparing for a career in economics. If you are a journalist, you might want research summaries and complimentary access to our journal publications — both reliable sources of current economic information. If you are an educator, you might be looking for ways to make economics more exciting in the classroom, get complimentary journal access for high school students, or incorporate real-world examples of economics concepts into lesson plans. Or, you might just want to learn more; our Research Highlight series is a great place to start. Economists can study a wide variety of topics. The following videos highlight some of the ways economists use data to explore everything. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Gate -thermodynamics 1-7(system,boundary ,surrounding,process,cycle,graph drawing)" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OySQw4Qim9Y -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Machine learning is a sub field of Artificial intelligence and intersects with cognitive techniques, Learning theory and contingency theory among others. It could be defined as the ability of a machine to improve its own performance through the use of a software that employs artificial intelligence techniques to mimic the ways by which humans seem to learn such as repetition and experience. Machine learning can still be defined as studying the theory automatically from the data through a process of inference model fitting or learning from examples that are ideally suited for areas with lots of data in the absence of a general theory It is a scientific discipline that is concerned with the design and development of algorithms that allow computers to emerge behaviours based on observed data such as from sensor data or databases. Python is a emerging language to develop machine learning applications. As a dynamic language it allows for fast exploration and experimentation and an increasing number of machine learning libraries are developed for python. Python has most powerful open source libraries for deep learning, data wrangling and data visualization to learn effective strategies and best practices to improve and optimize machine learning systems and algorithms and it is the field of study interested in the advancement of computer algorithms to revolutionize data into smart action. Growth in data required additional reckon power which in turn spurred the development of statistical methods for analysing large datasets. This field originated in an environment where the available data statistical methods promptly and concurrently evolved this created a revolution of advancement allowing even better and more interesting data. Machine learning at its base is concerned with converting data into actionable work This reality makes machine learning well appropriate to the present day era of big data and given the growing prominence of python a cross platform zero cost statistical programming environment to apply in machine learning, whether you are new to data science or a veteran machine learning with python offers a powerful set of methods for quick insight of your data.

Patrick Ball ─ Digital Echoes: Understanding Patterns of Mass Violence with Data and Statistics
Patrick Ball is the director of research at Human Rights Data Analysis Group. Data about mass violence can seem to offer insights into patterns: is violence getting better, or worse, over time? Is violence directed more against men or women? But in human rights data collection, we (usually) don’t know what we don’t know --- and worse, what we don’t know is likely to be systematically different from what we do know. This talk will explore the assumption that nearly every project using data must make: that the data are representative of reality in the world. We will explore how, contrary to the standard assumption, how statistical patterns in raw data tend to be quite different than patterns in the world. Statistical patterns in data reflect how the data was collected rather than changes in the real-world phenomena data purport to represent. Using analysis of killings in Iraq, homicides committed by police in the US, killings in the conflict in Syria, and homicides in Colombia, we will contrast patterns in raw data with estimates total patterns of violence—where the estimates correct for heterogeneous underreporting. The talk will show how biases in raw data can be addressed through estimation, and explain why it matters.

Political science
Political science is a social science discipline concerned with the study of the state, nation, government, and politics and policies of government. Aristotle defined it as the study of the state. It deals extensively with the theory and practice of politics, and the analysis of political systems, political behavior, and political culture. Political scientists "see themselves engaged in revealing the relationships underlying political events and conditions, and from these revelations they attempt to construct general principles about the way the world of politics works." Political science intersects with other fields; including economics, law, sociology, history, anthropology, public administration, public policy, national politics, international relations, comparative politics, psychology, political organization, and political theory. Although it was codified in the 19th century, when all the social sciences were established, political science has ancient roots; indeed, it originated almost 2,500 years ago with the works of Plato and Aristotle. Political science is commonly divided into distinct sub-disciplines which together constitute the field: This video is targeted to blind users.

BIO Distinguished Lecture Series – Michael Dietze
BIO Distinguished Lecture Series – Michael Dietze: "Solving the challenge of predicting nature: How close are we and how do we get there?" Is nature predictable? If so, how can we better manage and conserve ecosystems? Near-term ecological forecasting is an emerging interdisciplinary research area that aims to improve researchers' ability to predict ecological processes on timescales that can be validated and updated. On September 27, 2018, the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate for Biological Sciences invited media and members of the public to a Distinguished Lecture by Dr. Michael Dietze of Boston University. An ecologist who leads the university's Ecological Forecasting Laboratory, Dr. Dietze discussed the challenges and opportunities in near-term ecological forecasting, which span advances in environmental monitoring, statistics and cyberinfrastructure. Dr. Dietze is interested in ways that iterative forecasts can improve and accelerate basic environmental science while making that science more directly relevant to society. Dietze's plant ecology lab led the development of PEcAn, the Predictive Ecosystems Analyzer, an open-source software platform for analyzing diverse data and ecosystem models, funded by grants from NSF, NASA and others. In his Distinguished Lecture, Dr. Dietze presents a framework to understand the predictability of a wide range of ecological processes and highlighted ongoing efforts to build an ecological forecasting community of practice.

Space Tug by Murray Leinster, read by Mark Nelson, complete unabridged audiobook
Unabridged audio book - Genre(s): Action & Adventure Fiction, Science Fiction Space Tug by Murray Leinster (1896 - 1975) Joe Kenmore heard the airlock close with a sickening wheeze and then a clank. In desperation he turned toward Haney. "My God, we've been locked out!" Through the transparent domes of their space helmets, Joe could see a look of horror and disbelief pass across Haney's face. But it was true! Joe and his crew were locked out of the Space Platform. Four thousand miles below circled the Earth. Under Joe's feet rested the solid steel hull of his home in outer space. But without tools there was no hope of getting back inside. Joe looked at his oxygen meter. It registered thirty minutes to live.
