The top 50 science stars of Twitter | Science/AAAS | News
"Genomicist Neil Hall sparked an online tempest this summer by proposing a “Kardashian Index,” or K-index—a comparison of a scientist’s number of Twitter followers with their citations. Scientists with a high score on the index, named after the reality TV star Kim Kardashian, one of the most popular celebrities on the social media platform, should “get off Twitter” and write more papers, suggested Hall, who works at the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

Text mining the novel - Quill and Quire
"A group of researchers from 21 academic and non-academic institutes, led by Andrew Piper, associate professor and William Dawson Scholar of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at McGill University, is undertaking the “first large-scale quantitative history of the novel” using a decidedly modern method: text mining." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
AYLIEN Announces Intelligent Text Analysis Google Sheets Add-on - Semanticweb.com - http://semanticweb.com/aylien-...
"AYLIEN, Inc., a Dublin-based firm backed by SOS Ventures, has announced the availability of a Google Sheets add-on which extracts meaningful data from documents." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Like the original Text Analysis API, the Google Sheets add-on can perform sentiment analysis, extract mentions of entities and concepts, summarize lengthy texts, detect language, create hashtags for optimum sharability, classify documents into categories, and extract full text and embedded media. It’s the first such tool available for Google’s web-based productivity suite." - Sean McBride

August 2014 Was Earth's Hottest August On Record; Long-Term Trend Points To Global Warming
"Three of the last eight months this year were the hottest on record, according to the latest federal climate data, which found that last month was the warmest August worldwide. Average temperatures in May and June were similarly record-breaking, and this July was the fourth-hottest since scientists began keeping track 130 years ago." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

There is much more to the Atlantic's interview than this; it holds good and original ideas and stories, particularly interesting for people aspiring to teach others how to write. - Maitani
Favourite quote: "I used to repeat “See, then say” half a dozen times a day. So I would often ask them to describe operations that they take for granted. Ask a girl to write a paragraph on how she braids her sister’s hair. Ask a boy to explain a sports rule. These are just basic starting points, where students learn to write on paper what they might tell a friend. It keeps it concrete.... more... - Maitani
On the use of the Oxford comma: "For instance, I like “Jane bought eggs, milk, bread, and a candy bar for her brother.” But I also like “Jane raced home and slammed the door,” because I want to feel that whole thing as a single breath." - Maitani
See: [book; Stephen King; On Writing; 2010; Scribner http://www.amazon.com/On-Writ...] I have the highest respect for King's craft as a writer -- he is much more than a spinner of popular horror tales. - Sean McBride

Warmest August on Record, Global Warming Continues – Greg Laden's Blog - http://scienceblogs.com/greglad...
"According to data just updated by NASA, last August was the warmest August for the entire instrumental data record, which begins in 1881. This has been something of a mixed year but overall warm. Of the 134 years for which there are data, the coolest month this year so far was February, at 17th place, with July also being cool, at 11th place. Keep in mind this is over 134 years. For the months of January through August, there are no one-digit ranks (1 through 8) prior to 1989, inclusively, and you don’t really start getting consistent “top ten” ranks until 1998." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
Hahahaha now who has to use obscure blogs ? Global August 2014 Report: http://nsstc.uah.edu/climate/ - Eric Logan
This story is all over the Internet: [Google News; global warming august 2014 https://www.google.com/search...] - Sean McBride
I don't care where it's reported. The raw data says it's BS. RSS. http://data.remss.com/msu... - Eric Logan
Just out of curiosity which entry on your search parameter meets your previously stated criteria as reputable science publications. Think Progress ? You should just take Greg's word for it source watcher. LMAO. Greg Laden is a biological anthropologist and science communicator. His research has covered North American prehistoric and historic archaeology and African archaeology and human ecology. He is an OpenSource and OpenAccess advocate. - Eric Logan
This new story (it's less than a few hours old) has been reported so far in Huffington Post, Seattle Weekly, Climate Central, AccuWeather and Think Progress. I took a quick glance at reader comments for informed pushback -- haven't noticed any yet. I am waiting to see how the leading scientific publications cover it over the next few days and weeks. - Sean McBride
Give it a few years till they homogenize historical raw data. ;) - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Haha. Gavin Schmidt has picked up the baton for James Hansen. He took 12 days longer than everyone else and runs counter to the others, but there you have it. GISS http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp... - Eric Logan
# Eric Logan quotes on climate science 1. Hahahaha 2. LMAO 3. Haha - Sean McBride
Meanwhile, the latest reporting on this story: https://www.google.com/search... - Sean McBride
It's just as funny today as it was yesterday and it's a full 1/2 degree higher than any other data set. your trusted sources method are still conspicuously absent. "This result is apparently at odds with satellite measurements of the global tropospheric temperature calculated by the University of Alabama in Huntsville and by US firm remote Sensing Systems. Both these data sets showed... more... - Eric Logan
The divergence between the data sets is larger than the observed warming during the satellite era "pre pause" in other words the 1979-98 average. Truly laughable. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Enrique está perdido en la niebla. - Sean McBride
Sean, creo que hemos jugado a este juego antes. - Eric Logan
Also Sean it's a moot point because today @climateofgavin just adjusted it down on GISS so that August 2014 is no longer the hottest even according to NASA. Pure comedy. It's + .68 anomaly today. http://data.giss.nasa.gov/cgi-bin... - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Still looking for informed pushback on this story: https://www.google.com/search... - Sean McBride
Where are your reputable science links ? Mission accomplished. The echo chamber repeats information like it's factual the facts are on this thread. The scientific pushback got @climateofgavin to adjust the GISS by .02 which was enough to make it the hottest August according to GISS for a day. It's still .49 divergence from the other data sets. Winter is coming and it's an El Niño year. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Historically UAH runs hotter than GISS during El Niño years which makes the divergence odder. Google it for yourself. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
My mind works differently than yours, Eric -- I am looking for informed discussion on this latest datapoint which places it in the context of *all* relevant datapoints. That conversation should begin to develop over the next few weeks. - Sean McBride

Google's First Semantic Search Invention was Patented in 1999 - http://www.seobythesea.com/2014...
"On March 10, 1999, Sergey Brin filed a “Miscellaneous Incoming Letter” (this is what it is described as in the USPTO’s PAIR database). It’s a provisional patent titled Extracting Patterns and Relations from Scattered Databases Such as the World Wide Web (pdf) (Skip quickly past the first couple of pages. It becomes much more legible from the third page on.)" - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"This provisional patent filed by Sergey is similar to a provisional patent (again, a “Miscellaneous Incoming Letter”) filed by Lawrence Page when he filed the original provisional PageRank patent, Improved Text Searching in Hypertext Systems (pdf), which was filed on March 28th, 1997." - Sean McBride
"Sergey’s patent is about feeding some titles of books and their authors (5 books) into a database called the Web, and finding other web sites with those books, and learning about the different patterns of titles and authors where those are listed, and then scraping similar “tuples” or patterns of objects (books) and their facts (titles) and (authors) on all those pages and learning... more... - Sean McBride
