Tobin Siebers, Disability Theory | Davidson | Disability Studies Quarterly
Works such as Lennard Davis's Bending over Backwards, Robert McRuer's Crip Theory, David Mitchell and Sharon Snyder's Cultural Locations of Disability and several essays in Lennard Davis' revised Disability Studies Reader have criticized the medical model — the idea that disability rests in a physical or cognitive impairment — but have also questioned whether or not the social model doesn't throw out the lived body with the social constructionist bathwater.

Diagnosing the past | Wellcome Collection
Texts that are hundreds of years old might yield clues to medical problems of the past. But without a body, a definitive diagnosis is rarely possible. And unless you know the context of what you’re reading, it’s possible to go very wrong with retrospective diagnosis.

Math in Data Science
Statistics is the only mathematical discipline we mentioned in that definition, but data science also regularly involves other fields within math. Learning statistics is a great start, but data science also uses algorithms to make predictions. These algorithms are called machine learning algorithms and there are literally hundreds of them. Covering how much math is needed for every type of algorithm in depth is not within the scope of this post, I will discuss how much math you need to know for each of the following commonly-used algorithms:

Naive Bayes
Linear Regression
Logistic Regression
Neural Networks
K-Means clustering
Decision Trees

US proposal for defining gender has no basis in science
no foundation in science and would undo decades of progress on understanding sex — a classification based on internal and external bodily characteristics — and gender, a social construct related to biological differences but also rooted in culture, societal norms and individual behaviour. Worse, it would undermine efforts to reduce discrimination against transgender people and those who do not fall into the binary categories of male or female.

Furthermore, biology is not as straightforward as the proposal suggests. By some estimates, as many as one in 100 people have differences or disorders of sex development, such as hormonal conditions, genetic changes or anatomical ambiguities, some of which mean that their genitalia cannot clearly be classified as male or female.

Sex Redefined: The Idea of 2 Sexes Is Overly Simplistic - Scientific American
Sex can be much more complicated than it at first seems. According to the simple scenario, the presence or absence of a Y chromosome is what counts: with it, you are male, and without it, you are female. But doctors have long known that some people straddle the boundary—their sex chromosomes say one thing, but their gonads (ovaries or testes) or sexual anatomy say another.

Do more with R: Quick lookup tables using named vectors | InfoWorld
What’s the state abbreviation for Arkansas? Is it AR? AK? AS?

Maybe you’ve got a data frame with the information. Or any info where there’s one column with categories, and another column with values. Chances are, at some point you’d like to look up the value by category, sometimes known as the key. A lot of programming languages have ways to work with key-value pairs. This is easy to do in R, too, with named vectors. Here’s how.
