[1708.03579] Self-exciting point processes with spatial covariates: modeling the dynamics of crime
"Crime has both varying patterns in space, related to features of the environment, economy, and policing, and patterns in time arising from criminal behavior, such as retaliation. Serious crimes may also be presaged by minor crimes of disorder. We demonstrate that these spatial and temporal patterns are generally confounded, requiring analyses to take both into account, and propose a spatio-temporal self-exciting point process model which incorporates spatial features, near-repeat and retaliation effects, and triggering. We develop inference methods and diagnostic tools, such as residual maps, for this model, and through extensive simulation and crime data obtained from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, demonstrate its properties and usefulness."

2018 Honda CR-V - iSeeCars.com
An all-new Honda CR-V was introduced in 2017 with some pretty major changes to the best-selling compact crossover. The 2018 model carries those on and does very well with its turbocharged engine, excellent interior ergonomics and carefully designed safety systems. Some might be surprised at how good the optional all-wheel drive systems are at keeping the CR-V out of trouble.

Belgian motorist 'caught speeding' at 696kph in an Opel Astra
That is the speed indicated on the letter he received from police, suggesting the motorist was  caught on camera travelling at half the speed of sound in Quiévrain, a small Belgian town on the French border.

The speed limit on that section of road is 50kph.

Not even the fastest Formula One car can approach such a speed, which would have meant travelling at 193 metres per second. The Astra would have been a hair’s breadth off the world record for the fastest ever wheel-driven, piston-engined car, which is just over 439mph.

In an apparent act of generosity, the computer-generated letter indicated that the motorist’s speed had been slightly roun

[1708.02647] A Review of Self-Exciting Spatio-Temporal Point Processes and Their Applications
"Self-exciting spatio-temporal point process models predict the rate of events as a function of space, time, and the previous history of events. These models naturally capture triggering and clustering behavior, and have been widely used in fields where spatio-temporal clustering of events is observed, such as earthquake modeling, infectious disease, and crime. In the past several decades, advances have been made in estimation, inference, simulation, and diagnostic tools for self-exciting point process models. In this review, I describe the basic theory, survey related estimation and inference techniques from each field, highlight several key applications, and suggest directions for future research."

Dollar Street
Dollar Street is a project by Anna Rosling Rönnlund that imagines the world as a street ordered by income…poor families live at one end and rich families live at the other. A team of photographers went out and photographed the everyday items owned by families of all income levels — shoes, toothbrushes, TVs, beds, lights, sinks — so that visitors to the site can see how much income affects how families live.

Everyone needs to eat, sleep and pee. We all have the same needs, but we can afford different solutions. Select from 100 topics. The everyday life looks surprisingly similar for people on the same income level across cultures and continents.

Rönnlund explained her project at TED recently:

Bill Gates, who lives just one house in from the very end of the street (Bezos currently occupies the cul de sac), wrote about Dollar Street recently :

Income can often tell you more about how people live than location can. Whenever I visit a new place, I look for clues about which income level local families live on. Are there power lines? What kind of roofs do the houses have? Are people riding bikes or walking from place to place?

The answers to these questions tell me a lot about the people there. If I see power lines, I know homes probably have electricity in this area — which means that kids have enough light to do their homework after the sun sets. If I see patchwork roofs, families likely sleep less during the rainy season because they’re wet and cold. If I see bikes, that tells me people don’t have to spend hours walking to get water every day.

However, Gates’ conclusion — “It’s a beautiful reminder that we have more in common with people on the other side of the world than we think” — is not what I would take away from this. (via @roeeb/status/994474179339501568 )
