Police shoot far more people than anyone realized, a VICE News investigation reveals – VICE News
December 11, 2017
An exclusive analysis of data from the 50 largest local police departments in the United States shows that police shoot Americans more than twice as often as previously known.

Police shootings aren’t just undercounted — police in these departments shoot black people at a higher rate and shoot unarmed people far more often than any data has shown. Recent reform efforts have already worked to bring down police shootings, our investigation shows. Yet Attorney General Jeff Sessions is moving away from these reforms, to the dismay of advocates, experts, and some local law enforcement officials.

VICE News examined both fatal and nonfatal incidents to determine that cops in the 50 largest local departments shot at least 3,631 people from 2010 through 2016. That’s more than 500 people a year. On more than 700 other occasions, police fired at citizens and missed. Two-thirds of the people cops fired at survived.

How to build a 401(k) business from scratch
According to Labor Department statistics, there are approximately 500,000 401(k) plans in the country. Around 159,000 of those have between two and nine participants (generally considered the “micro” market) and 274,000 have between 10 and 100 (the “small” market). Smaller plans are where people typically recommend fledgling 401(k) advisers get their start.

Survivorship bias - Wikipedia
Wald proposed that the Navy instead reinforce the areas where the returning aircraft were unscathed, since those were the areas that, if hit, would cause the plane to be lost.[9][10][not in citation given] His work is considered seminal in the then-fledgling discipline of operational research.

[1711.01129] Hamilton-Jacobi Theory and Information Geometry
Recently, a method to dynamically define a divergence function D for a given statistical manifold (,g,T) by means of the Hamilton-Jacobi theory associated with a suitable Lagrangian function 𝔏 on T has been proposed. Here we will review this construction and lay the basis for an inverse problem where we assume the divergence function D to be known and we look for a Lagrangian function 𝔏 for which D is a complete solution of the associated Hamilton-Jacobi theory. To apply these ideas to quantum systems, we have to replace probability distributions with probability amplitudes.

ASEAN Statistical Report on Millennium Development Goals 2017 | ASEANstats
This report highlights important areas where ASEAN has effectively managed to bridge and narrow the development gaps between the
ASEAN-6 and the CLMV. In several instances, the CLMV countries have outpaced the ASEAN-6 countries, not only by the 1990 rates
of progress being completed faster, but even passing the level of the ASEAN-6 countries such as in regard to lower rates of maternal
mortality and their higher shares of people with improved drinking water sources. An SDG report will follow in 2018.

The 11 Things Everyone Should Know About Piloting a Survey - SocialCops
By testing out your survey in advance, you can predict any problems that might arise during the actual roll-out. For example, a pilot can help you learn how surveyors should be traveling from place to place, whether you should inform respondents in advance, what your surveyors should carry with them, and more.
