I like how you posted the same exact link to three different subreddits, under three different (yet with the same naming scheme) accounts, at nearly the same time.

Nothing says crappy marketing campaigns like some blatant bot spam. All three accounts have very little comment karma, and are obviously not genuine users.

I didn't make it that far before noticing the peculiar marketing techniques.

its supposed to be "entertaining" in the sense that it is actually trying to exert preemptive damage control on a video thats about to drop... that is why the left cant meme... all their "memes" are literally corrupt deep state tier propaganda... their memes are equivalent to a car salesman trying to sell you the under coating...

Undercoating is essential in the salty roads of the northeast. You don't want rust.

Some soyboy months back got all pissed off about links to tweets and threw a temper tantrum. So people just post images of tweets now mostly.

That, and it allows people to post the same content without being hassled by reddit for posting the same link someone else has.

The general positioning and groupings of words and labels are correct, they are not 100% precise though. The purpose is to share my work and see what feedback other people give. For example, someone below commented that grouping similar words can significantly improve visualization.

SLPeoples 2 points

When you're using random coloring, and you can't distinguish where terms are even placed, there might be some issues with the interpretation. Although it is possible to see some groupings, they mean absolutely nothing when you can't determine what point coincides with what term.

Visualizations are supposed to reduce the complexity of your problem, not expand it.

nikolaevra 1 point

I do see this as reduction of complexity, you would never be able to visualize this many words and wouldn’t be able to group words at all from just looking at all of them all at once. There are definitely improvements that can be made, but that does not mean that the work that has been done is useless

SLPeoples 2 points

I didn't mean to diminish/ ridicule the progress, I apologize. I just meant that there were some barriers to interpretation which prevented the visualization from standing alone.

And the newest Ford Mustang GT500 may have over 700hp. Rumors abound about it's fully semi-automatic capabilities, it may be designed to accept magazines up to 30 per glove box, and it's ability to piss off multiple Toyota Prius and Tesla drivers with a simple rev of the engine. 😀

I found parameterized filters to be a little simpler than action filters. Perhaps you could look into that as well.

a conservative think tank. a biased think tank. with agendas and desired outcomes.

I'm equally suspicious of liberal think tanks

SLPeoples 6 points

Whatever helps you reject the points, I suppose.

baronvonredd 1 point

You...do see how that goes both ways right? You're aware?

SLPeoples 5 points

I just haven't seen you discuss the points, but rather the source. I recognize that bias exists, but to act like bias negates an argument is foolish.

Their government has been castrated by the cartels. Mexico doesn't have control anymore.

From their ReadMe:

What is this data?

The rise of social networking might turn out to be a critical point in human history. This is a unique snapshot of the early days of the "social graph" (billions of interests, groups and friendship connections between people's personal profiles) which is likely to have many important functions and purposes in future, some of which we cannot yet imagine.

Facebook has grown increasingly monopolistic and has made a great deal of money charging for access to the social graph. Facebook have not paid their users for this information and we believe it should be freely available (as the users clearly intended when they made it public and made it available to search engines). This archived social graph data is now available free of charge to be used for the public good.

In the very short term I hope others will produce clones of the Profile Engine as I no longer have time to maintain the site. I ask only that you link back to profileengine.com or another site of my choice. Please contact me if you are building a product around this data as I would like to hear about it and I may be able to help. If it's a commercial product then I'm available for consultancy work.

In the short term I can imagine it being used for academic research, reuniting lost friends, forming good relationships with people who have shared interests, education and perhaps even breaking the monopoly by providing a springboard to launch new competitors to Facebook. A new social network with no data, no people has no chance (chicken and egg). A new pre-populated, open, 100% public social network? Maybe a small chance to challenge the monopoly if you do it right?

As an example use, politicians can be held to account for things they "Liked" before they were policiticans (and now try to hide).

In the long term (hundreds of years) I hope this data will be invaluable to genealogists, archeologists, historians, sociologists and to the general public. It is the only available snapshot of the early years of digital social networks and may be T the cusp of an unprecedented (and possibly undesirable, only the future will tell) transition from humans living our lives in the physical world to living in a digital world.

Study of the groups and pages people joined and liked ten years ago compared to now could be fascinating. There is also huge potential to explore correlations between groups - we did some preliminary work with some fascinating results which you can STILL explore on the "research" tab of profileengine.com.

When we built Profile Engine it was a unique and groundbreaking project and we had to develop all our own systems, data structures and tools. Nowadays there is a huge range of software specifically designed to process and analyse big data. There are even databases like Neo4J designed around processing social data. I'd love to see what someone can achieve by feeding this data into those powerful new tools.

We have donated the complete Profile Engine database to the Internet Archive with the current exclusion of the following sensitive fields:

  • Email address
  • Facebook user ID number
  • Facebook username
  • Surname
  • Profile Engine login password hash

We will consider providing Facebook user ID/username lookup services to convert between profile engine IDs and Facebook IDs in either direction or to lookup a profile ID using an email address which you already have. I will offer these services for a small fee if you can convince me that you have an ethical reason for needing them.

Check profileengine.com or profileengine.org for details of these services if and when they are offered.

The data will be uploaded un sections as and when I have time so keep checking back. I also hope to make available source code and information resources in due course (for security reasons source code of profileengine.com will not be released until the current site is retired, which I hope to do once at least one clone is available)

I think it's disingenuous to use "Gun deaths" when that's explicitly to include suicide. If you think you can solve the problems of homicide and suicide the same way, you're part of the problem.

curzyk 2 points

I think it's disingenuous to use "Gun deaths" when that's explicitly to include suicide.

While I agree with your point as that's usually the case, the text at the bottom of the OP's chart does say "does not include suicides".

Just do some research on the shit she did in the UK - is an active race baiter and generally hated by 95% of the people. Like Piers Morgan lol.

SLPeoples 2 points

That's a sensationalized opinion, but let's stay on the topic at hand, rather than lobbing personal attacks. Your disagreement with what a reporter has said in the past fails to negate anything that's currently being discussed.

I just find it hard to believe she came to fair conclusions when this is her repertoire:

https://www.hopenothate.org.uk/2018/01/15/katie-hopkins-blames-black-people-racial-stereotypes/

https://www.mediamatters.org/people/katie-hopkins

https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/katie-hopkins-leaves-south-africa-1176913

She got her rise to fame on the British version of The Apprentice, but was quickly gotten rid of by Sir Alan Sugar. Following that she went on Celebrity Big Brother and this catapulted her into media stardom for her racist rants and "outspoken" (read: combative and being an arsehole) view on things.

She became a darling amongst Britain First, English Defence League and a slew of demonstrably racist groups. She also went to South Africa and went around stoking and enflaming racial tensions. South Africa of all places.

So naturally she fits right in at Fox News.

Your username seems fitting.

Please refrain from degrading this thread with your demagoguery. You raise a handful of highly contentious points, which really deserve their own post for discussion.

The content of the character of a specific reporter is not what's being discussed here.

I'm pretty sure the majority of them lived in that region for generations, some of them descended from people who lived there before English speakers moved in.

There's actually been a pretty big demographic shift in the last ten to fifteen years. It's not just border towns.

Be careful with the data you find. The behavior of the police will affect the rates of arrests, but you should be able to measure the change in behavior with drug poisoning data from the CDC. Crime data would be harder, but you could scrape it from ECFs from various cities/ counties, if not the FBI.

More overdoses with less arrests can imply a less strict policy. This is especially significant when looking at drug policies over time.

Is there any reason you can't focus on a few major municipalities? Have you asked /r/datasets?

I thought that it means that since the standing army was necessary for protecting the country, the citizens must have the right to own arms to protect themselves from said army (the 'well regulated militia').

SLPeoples 3 points

I could have sworn A well-regulated militia meant that the weapons in use must be in well-working order, and of a common caliber.

Being necessary for the security of a free state provides the protections you describe, I believe.
