Rails are meant to keep a vehicle on a predetermined track. It's not much of compliment to compare a journalist to a smoothly operating train, always showing up at the official stations.

Don't miss our interview with the mother of Sgt. Brown: "In that video, I heard my son begging for his life on U.S. soil," said Dinetta Scott. "This was not his enemy that he was facing. This was a U.S. citizen that was treating him like he was an animal."

Newly released video has revealed the dying moments of an African-American active-duty soldier who checked himself into the El Paso, Texas, county jail for a two-day sentence for driving under the influence, and died while in custody in 2012. Authorities claimed Sgt. James Brown died due to a pre-existing medical condition, but shocking new video from inside the jail raises new questions about what happened.

מתממים, נראה לי. בכל חנות שנייה בתל אביב כתוב על מודעות הדרושים "אחרי צבא". איך זה שונה?

לאורך תקופה ארוכה תבע הסינמה סיטי מחברת הסעות לספק נהגים יהודים בלבד לחלק מהעובדים. הדרישה עלתה בשיחות טלפון, בתכתובות מייל ובשוברי הזמנה, שהגיעו לידינו. זמן קצר לאחר שחברת ההסעות סירבה לדרישה, הופסק החוזה עימה. תחקיר משותף לשיחה מקומית ולאולפן שישי

Introduction
I am a statistician and software engineer, living in Israel.

My interests include politics (theory and practice) and statistics (theory and practice).

Within politics, I am focused on issues revolving around elitism, political equality, and the application of chance in order to achieve political equality. I am an editor and a contributor to a group blog, Equality by Lot, which deals with the use of chance in governance and resource distribution.

If you have a statistical problem associated with a pro bono cause, please contact me.
