Judging Health Through Metrics of Conformance

I have written in the past about the difference between market demand and operational capacity - and how difficult it is to determine what exactly is being measured in relation to either.  Has the demand for a product declined, or is the organization simply less capable of satisfying it?  For example, the fact there are no bananas in the grocery store does not mean that there is no demand for bananas; but the absence of revenues from the sale of bananas might be regarded, rather erroneously, as…See More

"Who cares about the period spacing?  Lots of us were brought up to use two spaces as the "right" thing to do.  Anyway, very interesting article.  I've been wanting to bounce some astrological data against financial data…"

"+2 for an interesting read. -1 for using two spaces after a period :) A more specific and fine-tuned study could be the number of hospital visits / percent increase in visits during a full moon."

Astrology, Homicide Cases, and Everything Else

The “three wise men” in the story of the nativity are believed to be Magi or Zoroastrians.  As the story goes, these three wise men followed the Star of Bethlehem in search for the messiah.  For the most part, the Zoroastrians supported the one-god concept - and they also believed in a messiah.  It made sense for them - sometimes regarded as the original astrologers - to use their special talents to seek out the baby Jesus.  It makes sense purely from a narrative standpoint; although to me it…See More

Social Metrics from Parallel Narrative Objects

At times it might be desirable to determine what storylines on a narrative database contain certain key elements.  In the example below, the object “Alien Allan” is used to compile a listing of titles on the database that are in thematic agreement.  But rather than simply provide the listing of titles, the algorithm tabulates the key elements contained in these titles.  Notice that the most important elements resulting from the search do not necessarily match the elements in the submitted…See More

Quantitative Alienation in the Workplace

For my graduate paper, I studied perceptions of workplace stress through the critical lens of social disablement.  Writing this paper was certainly an intellectual exercise that at the time didn’t seem to have many practical applications.  I am therefore honoured to become better acquainted with the “mechanics” of quantitative alienation through my day-to-day duties.  I respect the fact that I can’t share any substantial details about my actual work processes on a blog.  It will therefore be…See More
