5 crazy stats from Rams’ blowout win over 49ers
Aaron Donald is first player ever with 4 sacks, 6 TFL in a game
We’ve talked a lot about the game Donald had on Sunday, and we’ll continue to do so throughout the week, mainly because it was a performance of historic proportions. Not only was it a career high for him in sacks, but he also had six tackles for loss.
He’s the first player in NFL history (since 1999, when tackles for loss became a stat) to record four sacks and six tackles for loss in a single game. Only three other players have ever had six tackles for loss in a game: J.J. Watt (2012, 2015), Jeremiah Trotter (2001) and Andre Carter (2009).

The Criminal Law and Law Enforcement Implications of Big Data | Annual Review of Law and Social Science
"Law enforcement agencies increasingly use big data analytics in their daily operations. This review outlines how police departments leverage big data and new surveillant technologies in patrol and investigations. It distinguishes between directed surveillance—which involves the surveillance of individuals and places under suspicion—and dragnet surveillance—which involves suspicionless, unparticularized data collection. Law enforcement's adoption of big data analytics far outpaces legal responses to the new surveillant landscape. Therefore, this review highlights open legal questions about data collection, suspicion requirements, and police discretion. It concludes by offering suggestions for future directions for researchers and practitioners."

The Ins and Outs of Hydrographic Printing [Infographic]
The Ins and Outs of Hydrographic Printing October 22, 2018 at 11:30AM

Hydrographic printing is the process of applying printed patterns to 3D objects and can be known as water transfer printing. It involves placing an object in water with film (pattern that will be printed), and when a solution is sprayed on the film, the film becomes a pattern which attaches to the object. This infographic by Liquid Concepts looks at the ins and outs of Hydrographic printing.

Companies are on the hook if their hiring algorithms are biased — Quartz
In 2016, Pinboard creator Maciej Cegłowski called machine learning “money laundering for bias.”

“It’s a clean, mathematical apparatus that gives the status quo the aura of logical inevitability. The numbers don’t lie,”Cegłowski said.

Communicating Uncertainty in Official Economic Statistics: An Appraisal Fifty Years after Morgenstern
"Federal statistical agencies in the United States and analogous agencies elsewhere commonly report official economic statistics as point estimates, without accompanying measures of error. Users of the statistics may incorrectly view them as error free or may incorrectly conjecture error magnitudes. This paper discusses strategies to mitigate misinterpretation of official statistics by communicating uncertainty to the public. Sampling error can be measured using established statistical principles. The challenge is to satisfactorily measure the various forms of nonsampling error. I find it useful to distinguish transitory statistical uncertainty, permanent statistical uncertainty, and conceptual uncertainty. I illustrate how each arises as the Bureau of Economic Analysis periodically revises GDP estimates, the Census Bureau generates household income statistics from surveys with nonresponse, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics seasonally adjusts employment statistics. I anchor my discussion of communication of uncertainty in the contribution of Oskar Morgenstern (1963a), who argued forcefully for agency publication of error estimates for official economic statistics."

Regression Equation: What it is and How to use it - Statistics How To
A regression equation is used in stats to find out what relationship, if any, exists between sets of data. For example, if you measure a child’s height every year you might find that they grow about 3 inches a year. That trend (growing three inches a year) can be modeled with a regression equation. In fact, most things in the real world (from gas prices to hurricanes) can be modeled with some kind of equation; it allows us to predict future events.

Revised and Extended Remarks at "The Rise of Intelligent Economies and the Work of the IMF"
The technology to estimate them and predict from them quickly now exists. It's true that if you fit a linear regression and a non-parametric regression to the same data set, the linear regression will always have tighter confidence sets, but (as Jeffrey Racine says) that's rapid convergence to a systematically wrong answer.
