General Inquirer Categories This document describes General Inquirer tag categories from four sources: (1) the Harvard IV-4 dictionary, (2) the Lasswell value dictionary, (3) several categories recently constructed, and (4) "marker" categories primarily developed as a resource for disambiguation, but also available to users. The entries in any category (with a cutoff after the first 100 entries to save on download time) will be displayed upon clicking on a category name. Complete listings for the Harvard IV-4 categories can be found at the Maryland Webuse site. The categories are described here in the order they appear in the columns across the master spreadsheet. See the Inquirer dictionary master spreadsheet guide for directions on downloading this complete spreadsheet in any of several formats. The Inquirer has no limit on the number of categories it can handle, providing each category has a unique name.

PSPP Features[edit] This software provides a basic set of capabilities: frequencies, cross-tabs comparison of means (t-tests and one-way ANOVA); linear regression, logistic regression, reliability (Cronbach's Alpha, not failure or Weibull), and re-ordering data, non-parametric tests, factor analysis, cluster analysis, principal components analysis, chi-square analysis and more. At the user's choice, statistical output and graphics are available in ASCII, PDF, PostScript, SVG or HTML formats.

Science Confirms: Politics Wrecks Your Ability to Do Math A new study finds that even how you solve a difficult math problem can depend on your politics.AlenKadr/Shutterstock Everybody knows that our political views can sometimes get in the way of thinking clearly. But perhaps we don't realize how bad the problem actually is. According to a new psychology paper, our political passions can even undermine our very basic reasoning skills. More specifically, the study finds that people who are otherwise very good at math may totally flunk a problem that they would otherwise probably be able to solve, simply because giving the right answer goes against their political beliefs. The study, by Yale law professor Dan Kahan and his colleagues, has an ingenious design.

Polish phrasebook Polish phrasebook Polish is the official language of Poland, a country of 38.5 million people and is also used by the 10M Polish diaspora around the world. It is understood and can be used for communication in the western parts of Ukraine, Belarus and Lithuania. Polish is a Western Slavic language and the closest similar languages are those of Poland's neighbours: Czech, Slovak,Ukrainian. The latter two are actually more easily understood by a speaker of Polish, even though they have somewhat different interpretations of the Latin alphabet.

Health & Hazards Lab The GIS | Health and Hazards Laboratory is a research-, education- and service- based facility within the Department of Geography and the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. Our research lies in the intersection of hazards and health using various geospatial approaches to work at the scale of intervention. This includes the home, street, block and neighborhood; a scale at which problems are not just identified, but can also be tackled through policy and action with expert collaborators. We primarily focus on the built environment, for example studying urban transformation after extreme externalities, such as a natural disaster.

General Inquirer Home Page We mourn the loss of Philip Stone who died on January 31st, 2006, and we dedicate the continuation of this site to his memory. Established as the home website for the General Inquirer, a computer-assisted approach for content analyses of textual data, the site is designed to be a resource for learning about the Inquirer as well as a reference in using the Inquirer. For a copy of the "Strengths Compared" powerpoint presented at the Positive Psychology Conference, click here for the web version and here for the power point file to download. A note on email contact. You may contact Roger Hurwitz with questions about access to the General Inquirer ( A reminder in the original page still holds true: please put "Inquirer" as the first word in any email you send to Roger.

Daden - About Datascape …a virtual world for your data Datascape provides an easy to use, install and manage immersive 3D environment in which users can visualise and interact with data from almost any source, from financial Excel spreadsheets to live social media feeds. The 3D environment significantly increases the amount of information that can be sensibly displayed, and the sense of immersion provide spatial cues which assist in maintaining orientation and identifying trends, clusters and anomalies with the data. Datascape is designed to maximise human analysis by optimising the display of data, whether structured or unstructured, enabling the user to take up a wide variety of viewpoints from both inside and outside the data. Datascape is also available in a collaborative edition, which allows users to invite others into their data visualisation, so that analysis and communication can become a shared task. The net result is better understanding, analysis and decision making, and improved recall.

New Years: A time for a little evidence based self-evaluation (CC: Boris Johnson) A few weeks ago Mayor of London Boris Johnson said some questionable things about IQ tests and the benefits of greed, income inequality and shaking boxes of cornflakes. Dorothy Bishop wrote an entertaining take-down focusing largely on the IQ front. Even David Cameron and George Osborne left Boris out in the cold. You can now sign a petition for Boris Johnson to take an IQ test under controlled conditions (he failed spectacularly on the three trick questions that a radio presenter managed to throw at him). Social Media Glossary For many people, posting a tweet, hashtagging an Instagram caption, and sending out an invite for a Facebook event on Facebook has become common practice. (In fact, if you're highly experienced, you probably do all three at once.) But with new social media networks and innovative software cropping up almost daily, even seasoned social media users are bound to run into a term or acronym that leaves them thinking, "WTF?" Download our free social media guides here to help you get started with an effective social media strategy. For those head-scratching moments, we've created the ultimate glossary of social media marketing terms.

Nigerian Summit Maps Better Data Sharing The 2011 Nigeria Health and Mapping Summit included more than 120 participants. Geographic information systems (GIS) offer enormous potential for furthering understanding of public health and improving health outcomes. However, in Nigeria the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) has for years operated without access to the data necessary for these approaches.

Movie Review Data This page is a distribution site for movie-review data for use in sentiment-analysis experiments. Available are collections of movie-review documents labeled with respect to their overall sentiment polarity (positive or negative) or subjective rating (e.g., "two and a half stars") and sentences labeled with respect to their subjectivity status (subjective or objective) or polarity. These data sets were introduced in the following papers: If you have results to report on these corpora, please send email to Bo Pang and/or Lillian Lee so we can add you to our list of other papers using this data. Thanks!

openbiomind - A toolkit for analysis of gene expression, SNP and other biological datasets using advanced machine learning techniques OpenBiomind is a toolkit for analysis of gene expression, SNP and other biological datasets using advanced machine learning and pattern mining techniques, and includes traditional clustering, hybrid clustering, and other techniques. OpenBiomind is modular and command-line driven. Components communicate via standardized file formats. OpenBiomind commands cover: • Dataset enhancement, with information extracted from gene and protein ontologies, as well as other dataset treatments/transformations (such as feature selection and creation of validation folds)
