I see this often. There's some great high theory novel methods stuff to be done, but data oriented academics in particular are prone to undervalue the meaty messy practical work, and also to underestimate its richness and complexity.

We all thought no new party could break thru "first past the post", because any tempted voter will always be reluctant to throw away their general election vote on a wild bet. A party whose key message is "throw the steering wheel out of the window" does not suffer that problem.

This is very concerning. Is there a way to access the papers presented in this case, or is the information only accessible via reporting of the oral hearing?

One thousand times bravo. By sharing code and workbooks we build capacity, avoid duplication, and improve quality through having many eyes on the work.

Mmmlovely US time difference. Potter out of bed at lunchtime and everyone acts like you're a go-getting 6am riser.

Those arrested for the homophobic, lesbiphobic and misogynist brutality and hate crime on the bus in May are 15-18 years old. Now tell me why we don't need education about LGBTQ lives in schools?

Every journalist and politician who has promoted quackery, for their own reasons of incompetence or expedience, shares the responsibility for this child's death. These cases are relatively rare but a constant tragic drip, and above all avoidable.

CORRECTION: Gizmodo originally stated that drug company Mallinckrodt had jacked up the price of an anti-seizure medication from $40 in 2000 to over $40,000 today. A spokesperson for Mallinckrodt emailed to request a correction that the drug costs $38,892.
