NPR Website To Get Rid Of Comments : NPR Ombudsman : NPR 2016
I did find the numbers quite startling. In July, NPR.org recorded nearly 33 million unique users, and 491,000 comments. But those comments came from just 19,400 commenters, Montgomery said. That's 0.06 percent of users who are commenting, a number that has stayed steady through 2016.

When NPR analyzed the number of people who left at least one comment in both June and July, the numbers showed an even more interesting pattern: Just 4,300 users posted about 145 comments apiece, or 67 percent of all NPR.org comments for the two months. More than half of all comments in May, June and July combined came from a mere 2,600 users. The conclusion: NPR's commenting system — which gets more expensive the more comments that are posted, and in some months has cost NPR twice what was budgeted — is serving a very, very small slice of its overall audience.

"Information Literacy and Institutional Effectiveness: A Longitudinal A" by Miriam Laskin and Lucinda Zoe
This article reports on an analysis of data that tracks close to 2000 students in an urban public community college over a five year period to gather baseline data on the potential impact of information literacy instruction on standard indicators of student success—retention, graduation rates, pass rates on required proficiency exams in math, reading, and writing, GPA and credits earned. The data show a statistically significant trend that favors the students who have taken information literacy workshops, showing a higher rate of success in every category than students who did not participate in our information literacy program.

Alun Williams | Wall Street International Magazine
Taking inspiration from an iconoclast like Francis Picabia, who in 1920 univocally declared a Rorschach-like inkblot to be La Sainte Vierge (The Blessed Virgin), Williams roams the lanes and byways of major cities and minor towns resolutely declaring random paint marks on buildings to represent major historical personages.

Like the French Dadaist, Williams banks on the sheer irrationality attached to painterly illusionism to give history painting a final conceptual turn of the screw. If a naturalistic arrangement of color on a piece of cloth can represent world historical figures, he argues, then a few especially suggestive abstract splotches can be made to stand for disparate characters that have animated this or that place on the globe.

The Dark Net: De-Anonymization, Classification and Analysis - JJ
Dissertation - The Internet facilitates interactions among human beings all over the world, with greater scope and ease than we could have ever imagined. However, it does this for both well-intentioned and malicious actors alike. This dissertation focuses on these malicious persons and the spaces online that they inhabit and use for profit and pleasure. Specifically, we focus on three main domains of criminal activity on the clear web and the Dark Net: classified ads advertising trafficked humans for sexual services, cyber black-market forums, and Tor onion sites hosting forums dedicated to child sexual abuse material (CSAM).
