Good article on why subtle biases in statistics may be caused by blind random sampling.

When others get off the train to finally go home, Leonie Müller stays behind. That's because she already is home. The train is her apartment, and she says she likes it that way.

Taylor & Francis are promoting my "Ethics of Brain Emulations" paper by making it freely downloadable this month: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/0952813X.2014.895113 
(and if enough people download it, I win a prize. I'd rather have it downloaded because it is useful, thought provoking or gets people to treat artificial moral patients better, but the low-probability win chance is of course an added bonus).

Amnesty International votes to "develop a policy that supports the full decriminalization of all aspects of consensual sex work."

> The research and consultation carried out in the development of this policy in the past two years concluded that this was the best way to defend sex workers’ human rights and lessen the risk of abuse and violations they face. 

> The violations that sex workers can be exposed to include physical and sexual violence, arbitrary arrest and detention, extortion and harassment, human trafficking, forced HIV testing and medical interventions. They can also be excluded from health care and housing services and other social and legal protection. 

> The policy has drawn from an extensive evidence base from sources including UN agencies, such as the World Health Organization, UNAIDS, UN Women and the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health. We have also conducted research in four countries. 
> The consultation included sex worker groups, groups representing survivors of prostitution, abolitionist organizations, feminist and other women's rights representatives, LGBTI activists, anti- trafficking agencies and HIV/AIDS organizations. 
A crucial vote to protect the human rights of sex workers was passed today in Dublin at Amnesty International’s decision-making forum, the International Council Meeting (ICM). Delegates from around the world adopted a resolution which authorized the International Board to develop and adopt a policy on the issue.

I missed this story when it came out back in January.

The Koch brothers, two of the richest people on the planet are planning to spend nearly $900 million dollars during campaigning for the 2016 US presidential election.

Its pretty obvious that for people like the Koch brothers to be doing this, they consider that $900 million an investment and expect to get a return on that investment.

Its possibly less obvious that if the Koch brothers are willing to pay this much to influence the political system, the way they wield that political influence will be good for them, but is extremely unlikely to be good for the majority of people in the US or the country as a whole.

The goal, announced at the billionaire brothers’ annual winter retreat, is an unparalleled effort by outside groups to shape a presidential election.

Requiring studies to be pre-registered seems to have reduced the amount of positive outcomes from 57% to 8%.

> Taken at face value, however, it means that at least half of all published clinical trials are false positives, while only about 10% are true positive, and 40% are negative (both true and false negative). Also keep in mind – these were large studies, not small preliminary trials.
