Statisticians' Call to Arms: Reject #Significance And Embrace #Uncertainty!
– Richard Harris for NPR
Great points. Some quotes:
"[...] scientists often find that they can't publish their interesting (if somewhat ambiguous) results if they aren't statistically significant. But that information is actually still useful, and advocates say it's wasteful simply to throw it away."For a deeper look at it: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00857-9
"The advocates for change say the community can still use the p-value test, but as part of a broader approach to measuring uncertainty."
"Uncertainty is present always," Wasserstein says. "That's part of #science. So rather than trying to dance around it, we [should]accept it."
Use rubber glove.

Urban Honeybeez Are Precise Pollution Detectivez
A new study on pollution reveals that proof isn’t in the pudding — it’s in the honey. Research carried out in partnership between the nonprofit Hives for Humanity and the University of British Columbia showed that honey collected from urban beehives can accurately measure how polluted a city is. This means that honey isn’t just a byproduct of bee regurgitation — it’s also a way to closely monitor changes in the environment.
Writing in Nature Sustainability, the study’s authors explain that this study is the first of its kind in North America. They specifically analyzed honey collected from beehives in six Metro Vancouver neighborhoods — testing for levels of lead, zinc, copper, and other elements. The good news for Vancouver was that the chemical composition of this Canadian honey demonstrated that the city is “extremely clean.” But that doesn’t mean that human influence didn’t affect the honey at all — they found that the closer a hive was to the downtown metro, the higher the chance the hive’s honey contained elevated concentrations of lead, which is toxic at high concentrations.

A nice interview with a Real Scientist who has been attempting to communicate the actual #science regarding the #GlobalWarming #ClimateChange hoax. But it’s difficult getting people to listen because she’s a scientist, not a journalist.
Like many climatologists who have become skeptics, Judith Curry assumed that the carbon dioxide - global warming hypothesis was accurate until she looked into the actual science.
Climate Science’s Myth-Buster: It’s time to be scientific about global warming, says climatologist Judith Curry.
From City Journal Guy Sorman Winter 2019 We’ve all come across the images of polar bears drifting on ice floes: emblematic victims of the global warming that’s melting the polar ice caps,

Very exciting, looking forward to seeing different solutions like this one popping up.
Publishing the code in science needs to become the norm, we can't keep building on a house of cards of unaccountable #research. Open the data, the analysis, and the access.
