3 YEARS AGO (APRIL 2015): MEMORY LANE

3 years ago...

3 years ago…

MONTHLY MEMORY LANE: 3 years ago: April 2015. I mark in red 3-4 posts from each month that seem most apt for general background on key issues in this blog, excluding those reblogged recently[1], and in green up to 3 others of general relevance to philosophy of statistics (in months where I’ve blogged a lot)[2].  Posts that are part of a “unit” or a group count as one.

April 2015

  • 04/01 Are scientists really ready for ‘retraction offsets’ to advance ‘aggregate reproducibility’? (let alone ‘precautionary withdrawals’)
  • 04/04 Joan Clarke, Turing, I.J. Good, and “that after-dinner comedy hour…”
  • 04/08 Heads I win, tails you lose? Meehl and many Popperians get this wrong (about severe tests)!
  • 04/13 Philosophy of Statistics Comes to the Big Apple! APS 2015 Annual Convention — NYC
  • 04/16 A. Spanos: Jerzy Neyman and his Enduring Legacy
  • 04/18 Neyman: Distinguishing tests of statistical hypotheses and tests of significance might have been a lapse of someone’s pen
  • 04/22 NEYMAN: “Note on an Article by Sir Ronald Fisher” (3 uses for power, Fisher’s fiducial argument)
  • 04/24 “Statistical Concepts in Their Relation to Reality” by E.S. Pearson
  • 04/27 3 YEARS AGO (APRIL 2012): MEMORY LANE
  • 04/30 96% Error in “Expert” Testimony Based on Probability of Hair Matches: It’s all Junk!

 

[1] Monthly memory lanes began at the blog’s 3-year anniversary in Sept, 2014.

[2] New Rule, July 30,2016, March 30,2017 -a very convenient way to allow data-dependent choices (note why it’s legit in selecting blog posts, on severity grounds).
