Suicide: Alarming Facts And Figures

By Robin | source:Here Aug 18th, 2018

The tragedy of suicide occurs on a daily basis at the rate of one death every 40 seconds, but it often doesn’t hit the news until high-profile celebrities become a part of the fray. Celebrity deaths over the last few years have pierced an illusion that they have it all.  The passing of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain and fashion designer Kate Spade sparked increased awareness because they were household names.   In the US suicide rates have increased by 25% since 1999.   With these tragedies comes a closer look at the public health crisis that takes more than 800,000 lives each year.

There are more suicides annually than deaths from homicide and war combined, though murder and combat make the headlines. Moreover, suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people aged 15-29 after traffic accidents, and studies show that suicide rates have increased steadily across nearly all demographics over the past two decades.

Mental illness is not preventable, but treatment does help to reduce deep depression and anxiety that lead to suicide, along with community support and understanding, and ongoing care.

If you are suffering or know someone who has shown suicidal tendencies, call for help. For immediate care, call 911 and get professional assistance, or to talk to a trained counselor at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255)

For those who don’t need immediate medical assistance, sometimes it’s helpful just to have someone to talk to.  Licensed therapists are even available online for on demand video or chat counseling.  Talk it out if you need to.

Measuring classifier performance: a coherent alternative to the area under the ROC curve | SpringerLink
This means that using the AUC is equivalent to using different metrics to evaluate different classification rules. It is equivalent to saying that, using one classifier, misclassifying a class 1 point is p times as serious as misclassifying a class 0 point, but, using another classifier, misclassifying a class 1 point is P times as serious, where p≠P. This is nonsensical because the relative severities of different kinds of misclassifications of individual points is a property of the problem, not the classifiers which happen to have been chosen. This property is explored in detail, and a simple valid alternative to the AUC is proposed.

Markov Chains explained visually
With two states (A and B) in our state space, there are 4 possible transitions (not 2, because a state can transition back into itself). If we're at 'A' we could transition to 'B' or stay at 'A'. If we're at 'B' we could transition to 'A' or stay at 'B'. In this two state diagram, the probability of transitioning from any state to any other state is 0.5.

Of course, real modelers don't always draw out Markov chain diagrams. Instead they use a "transition matrix" to tally the transition probabilities. Every state in the state space is included once as a row and again as a column, and each cell in the matrix tells you the probability of transitioning from its row's state to its column's state. So, in the matrix, the cells do the same job that the arrows do in the diagram.

Wage Theft is a Huge Problem August 17, 2018 at 11:21AM

America’s low-wage workers are protected by federal law, or so in theory! The vast majority of employees are entitled to at least the federal minimum wage and overtime pay under the under the Fair Labor Standards Act for any and all hours worked over 40 in a week. However, in practice, employers routinely cheat their workers out of both. It’s called wage theft and it’s a massive problem.
