Open Syllabus Project: Co-Assignment Galaxy
https://galaxy.opensyllabus.org

The Open Syllabus Project (featured in the 7-15-2016 Scout Report) uses machine learning to analyze "a corpus of seven million English-language syllabi from over 80 countries." At the link above, readers will find the project's Co-Assignment Galaxy, a fascinating interactive visualization of more than 160,000 of the most commonly assigned texts in the Open Syllabus database. Upon arrival, visitors first see a concise yet detailed explanation of what the visualization shows and how it was created. The visualization itself is an intriguing, multicolored concoction that is well worth exploring. Each dot represents a text, with the more popular texts represented by larger dots. These are positioned such that "books that are close together in the layout are assigned in similar courses." Clicking a dot brings up a link to the text's profile page, where users can see more details like which other texts are frequently assigned alongside the selected item. A search bar in the upper left of the Galaxy enables readers to look for a particular title. Launched in 2016 and currently in its second database iteration, the Open Syllabus Project is directed by Joe Karaganis, who is also the vice president of the American Assembly, an independent nonprofit located at Columbia University.

PageProbe - Automatic Page Monitor
https://nodetics.com/pageprobe/

PageProbe WebExtension can monitor any web pages you can access on the Internet or in your company intranet. By simply right-clicking the content you see on a page, you can quickly create a tracker with optional conditions and actions and then view the status of those trackers in a simple monitoring view. By clicking the extension icon you can see a nice overview of all your trackers and the data retrieved. Trackers can be easily organized into groups. They believe that people are evaluating the things they monitor based on certain conditions and when those conditions are met, they will take action. For example, the price of the television that you want will drop below certain price. They believe that when this kind of tracking of many things happens manually every day, it is a huge waste of time and you can easily miss good discounts, buying or selling opportunities and as a result can also lose money. Therefore most of content monitoring should be easily automated so that an application will monitor the things you have defined, evaluates the results based on the conditions you have defined and then notifies you when those conditions are met so that you can take action. Features include: 1) Unlimited number of trackers that can monitor any accessible page on the Internet or intranet; 2) Fully local solution - does not require an account; 3) Trackers can be organized into a tree based hierarchy of groups; 4) Converters allow you to easily transform strings to numbers and perform simple arithmetic on them; 5) Advanced conditions for trackers: contains text, doesn't contain text, contains all words, doesn't contain words, contains any words, contains any words that start with, matches regexp, is, is not, begins with text, ends with text, smaller than, smaller than or equal, greater than, greater than or equal, is going up, is going down, has changed; 6) Case sensitive and case-insensitive matching; 7) Advanced actions: show desktop notification, play audio (local or URL), set color/CSS for monitor column/row, HTTP POST, IFTTT, data history logging, event log entry; 8) Data history logging will allow you to see with a simple chart how the value of some item has changed over time; 9) Export tracker table as Excel; and 10) Supports also cron / crontab style advanced scheduling!

Pew Report: The American Veteran Experience and the Post-9/11 Generation
https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2019/09/10/the-american-veteran-experience-and-the-post-9-11-generation

In September 2019, the Pew Research Center released this report examining trends among the experiences of American military veterans, comparing veterans whose service began after 9/11 to those whose service ended prior to 9/11. The report looked at a variety of aspects of the veteran experience, including deployment and combat trends, how well veterans feel their training prepared them for military service and civilian life, and how both veterans and the general public view those who have served in the military. In addition to similarities, the study found several disparities between pre- and post-9/11 generations of veterans. For example, those who served after 9/11 were significantly more likely to be deployed and see combat than those who served prior to 9/11. Interested readers can view and download the full 38-page report at the link above, where they will also find multiple colorful graphs and the topline survey results. This report was authored by Kim Parker, Ruth Igielnik, Amanda Barroso, and Anthony Cilluffo. It is based on two surveys of US adults, with one survey consisting of 1,284 US military veterans and the other consisting of 1,084 US non-veterans. These surveys were conducted between May 14 and June 3, 2019. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

GPO Produces U.S. Code with New Digital Publishing Technology
https://www.govinfo.gov/features/uscode-2018

GPO has taken a major step forward in the modernization of its publishing systems by beginning to publish the 2018 main edition of the United States Code through XPub, the agency’s new digital technology for XML-based publishing. With the implementation of XPub, GPO will be able to simultaneously publish all legislative documents in a variety of print and digital formats in a more timely manner. The 2018 Main Edition of the U.S. Code is the first, large-scale production job that GPO has published using the new composition system. The XPub system will replace GPO’s more than 30-year-old MicroComp system. GPO plans to transition the production of all routine publications, including the Congressional Record, the Federal Register, Public Laws, Congressional Bills, Statutes at Large, and House and Senate Calendars, to the XPub system. XPub will allow customers to provide GPO with content in any format. The system will also be able to do the following: a) Accept content in any form, including XML sources, as well as digital file formats and hard copy manuscript pages; b) Simultaneously generate content in a variety of print and digital formats, including but not limited to mobile apps, websites, eBooks, print-ready PDFs, and print products; c) Produce PDF files and digital products that are Section 508-compliant, meaning they are accessible to people with disabilities; and d) Create templates so content can be easily repurposed and reproduced. The U.S. Code is a consolidation and codification by subject matter of the general and permanent laws of the United States, and is produced in a Main Edition every six years. The 2018 Main Edition is approximately 60,000 pages encompassing 54 volumes, and is prepared by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel. Through XPub, GPO plans to complete the publishing of the 2018 Main Edition in less than a year – a process that has historically taken 1.5 years.
The first seven titles of the 2018 U.S. Code are available now on govinfo with additional titles to be released continuously as they are available.

Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB)
https://aws.amazon.com/qldb/

Amazon QLDB is a fully managed ledger database that provides a transparent, immutable, and cryptographically verifiable transaction log ‎owned by a central trusted authority. Amazon QLDB tracks each and every application data change and maintains a complete and verifiable history of changes over time. Ledgers are typically used to record a history of economic and financial activity in an organization. Many organizations build applications with ledger-like functionality because they want to maintain an accurate history of their applications' data, for example, tracking the history of credits and debits in banking transactions, verifying the data lineage of an insurance claim, or tracing movement of an item in a supply chain network. Ledger applications are often implemented using custom audit tables or audit trails created in relational databases. However, building audit functionality with relational databases is time-consuming and prone to human error. It requires custom development, and since relational databases are not inherently immutable, any unintended changes to the data are hard to track and verify. Alternatively, blockchain frameworks, such as Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum, can also be used as a ledger. However, this adds complexity as you need to set-up an entire blockchain network with multiple nodes, manage its infrastructure, and require the nodes to validate each transaction before it can be added to the ledger. Amazon QLDB is a new class of database that eliminates the need to engage in the complex development effort of building your own ledger-like applications. With QLDB, your data’s change history is immutable – it cannot be altered or deleted – and using cryptography, you can easily verify that there have been no unintended modifications to your application’s data. QLDB uses an immutable transactional log, known as a journal, that tracks each application data change and maintains a complete and verifiable history of changes over time. QLDB is easy to use because it provides developers with a familiar SQL-like API, a flexible document data model, and full support for transactions. QLDB is also serverless, so it automatically scales to support the demands of your application. There are no servers to manage and no read or write limits to configure. With QLDB, you only pay for what you use. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

Lead Stories - Innovative Fact Checking and Debunking Website
https://leadstories.com/

Lead Stories is an innovative fact checking and debunking website at the intersection of big data and journalism that launched in 2015. Their editorial team used the technology provided by Trendolizer™ (patent pending) to quickly find the most trending content on the internet to write about but their mantra has always been "Just Because It's Trending Doesn't Mean It's True." Originally started as a site about what was currently trending on the internet in general (and in some cases if it was actually true) they gradually shifted into full time fact checking and debunking mode ever since the primaries of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. Nowadays they specifically hunt for trending stories from known fake news, satire or prank websites in order to debunk them as quickly as possible. Often they are one or two days ahead of other fact checking websites because they actively monitor the fake news ecosystem and they don't have to wait for reader tips or reports before getting started on a story. Since February 2019 they are actively part of Facebook's partnership with third party fact checkers. Under the terms of this partnership they get access to listings of content that has been flagged as potentially false by Facebook's systems or its users and they can decide independently if they want to fact check it or not. In addition to this we can enter our fact checks into a tool provided by Facebook and Facebook then uses their data to help slow down the spread of false information on its platform. Facebook pays them to perform this service for them but they have no say or influence over what they fact check or what their conclusions are, nor do they want to.

Statistics in Schools: History Activities
https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/sis/activities/history.html

From the U.S. Census Bureau's Statistics in Schools (SIS) program comes this collection of classroom history and social studies activities intended to "supplement the standard curriculum while providing useful learning tools related to real life data." This collection features well-developed activity plans for K-12 students, each focused on a specific topic. Activities are broadly grouped into grade-level appropriate subjects: elementary grades (e.g. "Jamestown - Factors Affecting Population Change, 1630-1700"), middle school (e.g. "Where Should I Live? Using U.S. Census Bureau Data to Make Decisions"), and high school (e.g. "19th Century Immigration - Causes & Effects"). The webpage for each activity gives a description, states the time and materials required, and provides a list of learning objectives. Some activities also take advantage of the Census Bureau's interactive digital tools, such as QuickFacts. Each lesson includes attractively designed and downloadable PDFs of teacher and student versions of the activity. This will be added to Education Resources Subject Tracer™.
