@quinta Inoltre, considerando il problema del "no-show paradox" come da Felsenthal & Machover (2008)
eprints.lse.ac.uk/24213/1/The_ , dissento dall'affermazione che i dati "non lasciano dubbi". Bisognerebbe come minimo pubblicare il tasso di risposta, il numero di astensioni e quali opzioni siano state date ai partecipanti al sondaggio. Alternativamente, per evitare il paradosso, gli stessi B&L suggeriscono di usare solo 3 gradi (per esempio: positivo, negativo, neutrale). basepub.dauphine.psl.eu/bitstr

@quinta Ho letto pnas.org/content/pnas/104/21/8 e non vedo nulla sulla coesione. Si intende forse la proprietà "rewards consensus", descritta come: «A SGF rewards consensus when all of A’s grades strictly belong to the middlemost interval of B’s grades implies that A’s final grade is higher than B’s final grade.»?

@quinta La mediana dell'indice di gradimento non mi sembra una misura di coesione. Al contrario favorisce chi si è allenato a massimizzare il gradimento del 50 % + 1 ignorando l'altra metà.

Infatti Elsa Fornero meno coesiva di Berlusconi è assurdo: l'una farebbe scontenti un po' tutti, l'altro farebbe contenti gli uni e molto scontenti gli altri.

Si farebbe prima a fare un STV.

Figure 1 of [1] (overview: [2]) shows several reasons why factors favouring war rather than peace may affect media selection filters in many countries:

* RU: column mostly red - 'substantial' arms sales to countries in almost all wars
* DE: not so antiwar - helping to continue Yemen war, arming PK, arming ... RU!
* FR+UK: also arming RU!
* UA ("UKR"): in top 11, arming the "African North Korea" (Eritrea)

@boud @angdraug @kravietz The war-mongering media refuse to cover yesterday's news, it seems. Is anyone carrying it on the frontpage other than DW?

Even the rather bellicose RT mentions the talks (4 screenfuls below the fold for me): "Russia, Ukraine, Germany & France confirm participation in summit over Donbass – Kiev".

«Piú larga di tutte l'altre vie, piú fastosa era questa, rischiarata dal sole e illuminata tutta notte dai fuochi: ma fuori di essa, nella fitta oscurità, ha proceduto il flusso degli uomini. [...] Ma ride la generazione che passa, e sicura di sé, orgogliosa, dà inizio a una nuova serie di errori, sui quali a loro volta rideranno i posteri.»

Nikolaj Vasilevič Gogol', "Le anime morte", traduzione di Agostino Villa, Einaudi, 1977.

@boud @angdraug I want to be a naive optimist and assume they just want to give Putin some head start to prepare their response before knee-jerk reactions prevail, as well as to agree to some form of shared communiqué later. We'll see...

RT @gavinsblog
So @RightToKnowIE and @carlmalamud /Public Resource are going to the CJEU. It's an appeal from an earlier General Court ruling.

@eloquence Then we need to provide an alternative. None exists so far.

@eloquence Photoclaim does consider the use case: they focus on commercial use of photos not licensed for commercial use, after all. If there was at least some attribution they request less in damage, etc.

I've not checked recently, but the cases I saw seemed reasonable.

I don't know how informative their lawyers' first contact is in the case of Creative Commons works.

@eloquence Flickr does this because photographers complain about not being attributed at all in uses of their freely licensed photos. Without a solution, many will stop using licenses completely.

License compliance actions should start with a friendly letter asking a correction and providing resources. (Not with the involvement of lawyers as @pluralistic says.) That's possible with CC 2.0 too.

Some seem to do it ethically, like photoclaim.com/en/how-it-works . (But only CC NC.)

@boud «As soon as it became clear that Donbas was a different form of operation to Crimea, however (far bloodier and more destructive), public opinion went on the defensive».

Impressive if true. Public opinion in USA and Europe was unable to stop the escalation of war from Afghanistan to Iraq, let alone keep track of the trends in each of those countries.

@setthemfree No. Unilateral disarmament is wise but unlikely. It's easier to start from implementing the already agreed bilateral disarmaments and proceed from there.

And geopolitics is pretty much by definition the reaction of others to what you do. Ukraine can make its decisions, so can the others.

@setthemfree The most obvious kind of support is a non-proliferation treaty so that isn't caught between heavily armed neighbours.

Hospitals, if they were managed like the .

"The patient needs to transition upstairs within a hour for an urgent procedure and the elevators are broken, can you send extra hands to carry them?"

"I could but it sounds like work and you might get tired mid way on the stairs. Why not bring the patient outdoors, wait until it gets worse, call a helicopter, and go down the stairs from the roof? Someone else pays for kerosene and lawsuits for elevator faillures."
