Times' Alzheimer's test story criticized for selective statistics ...

New York Times' article on Alzheimer's disease study chastised by medical journalism critics for ignoring statistical flaws in research. By Merrill Goozner HealthNewsReview.org gave Gina Kolata's front-page New York Times story touting spinal taps to predict Alzheimer's disease a two-star rating — out of five. Chief complaint: its 100 accuracy claim ignored the test's "specificity" problem. Over a third of people told they were on the road to dementia didn't develop the disease. I'm glad somebody blew the whistle on this latest example of hyped health care coverage that so consistently [more...]

MTHFR A1298C polymorphism and idiopathic male infertility Singh K ...

The enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) catalyses the formation of folate intermediates that are vital for DNA synthesis and methylation reactions. C677T and A1298C variants of MTHFR result in reduced plasma folate and increase the susceptibility to various multifactorial disorders. We have already shown that homozygosity for 677 (C ®T) mutation in the MTHFR gene, is a risk factor for idiopathic male infertility in an Indian population. Aim: Recently, we showed that homozygosity for the 677(C;T) mutation in the MTHFR gene is a risk factor for idiopathic male infertility and [more...]

Melt Up ? | The Big Picture

About Contact Managed Assets Speaking Disclosures Fed Minutes combined with a strong earnings report from Intel and CSX to propel futures higher this morning. US Indices closed marginally higher yesterday, reversing their negative opening after Asia was off 1.5-2%. This market has had repeated opportunities to roll over, to fall on bad news, to follow other bourses lower, or to take a modest sell off of 0.50-0.75% and turn it into something more dangerous. In just about every case, Mr. Market has refused to cooperate with the bears. The bottom line remains: Excessive pessimism, [more...]

FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS: Innovative Statistics, Intelligent Analysis ...

They have focused on the run as much as possible (and with Marcus Lattimore, why wouldn't you?), but in passing situations, Spurrier has, for better or worse, attempted to trust quarterback Stephen Garcia to make a play. Against Alabama, the Gamecocks ran more frequently than normal on standard downs (77%), likely because wanted to work the clock whenever possible. But at the same time, they ran just 21 percent of the time over the course of 14 passing downs. Instead of playing it safe with the lead, Spurrier took chances. Four of Alshon Jeffery's seven catches came on passing downs, and [more...]

Rape Kit Examination Leads to Solving Crimes - The Daily Beast

Like many victims, the courageous teen spent the next several hours in a hospital emergency room, where doctors examined her and prepared an evidence collection kit that they knew could supply a forensic link to the stranger who committed the devastating crime. The exams are intrusive and impersonal, too, yet survivors submit to them in hopes that the results will bring a perpetrator to justice. But there were no DNA databanks operative at that time, and no suspect against whom to compare the DNA left on the young woman's body. So her evidence kit was stored alongside thousands of others in [more...]

Feds spent $1 million plus testing scrapped census - Winnipeg Free ...

OTTAWA - A million-dollar test run, privacy checks and extensive consultations on the 2011 census were all in place only a month before the Conservative government decided to scrap the long questionnaire this spring. Internal Statistics Canada documents shed light on just how abrupt the decision was for the agency, which prepares for the census and analyses the data over a period of seven years. A key part of the preparation was a test of the census project in May 2009, which cost the government more than $1 million. Long and short questionnaires were sent to 110,000 homes in suburban [more...]

The Numbers Game « (Re)Structuring Journalism

Rethinking journalism and the business of journalism from the ground up  Imagine an ambitious young reporter came up to you and said:  “I love this journalism stuff, but I’m just not a words and meaning kind of person.  That’s not why I got into this business.”  That would be a quick way to get out of work.  Yet we tolerate the equivalent from journalists all the time who proudly proclaim that they’re not “numbers people.”  Their stories will be filled with interviews, quotes and ideas.  But no numbers to back them up. This isn’t acceptable.  It wasn’t before, and [more...]

Shocking HPV Statistics: Liz Lange Speaks Out on Cervical Cancer

Here I was, a college-educated woman who lived in Manhattan, and I really had no idea that the Pap test was used to diagnose cervical cancer. I knew I was supposed to go the gynecologist once a year, but I didn’t really know why. The symptoms in early cases are often silent, and I hadn’t exhibited any signs of cancer. My abnormal Pap test was the first indication. The diagnosis terrified me. I had a 2½-year-old and an 8-month-old baby, and I was working on a fashion show and launching a new product line. On a personal level, I was afraid that I wouldn’t be there for my children; [more...]

Dienekes' Anthropology Blog: DNA tests for asylum seekers

ScienceInsider has some reactions to plans from the UK Border Agency to use DNA tests to verify claims of asylum seekers that they do in fact come from the countries they claim (e.g., Somalia), rather than other ones which do not face the same geopolitical turmoil. This is a real problem for European countries, as many illegal immigrants without documents claim to be from war-zones. I am completely in agreement with the use of DNA tests to substantiate asylum seekers' claims, with the caveat that the followed protocols should be transparent to the scientific community, so that they can be [more...]

College Students Can Gain More Than Just a Career | Test Drive ...

Happiness is also a big factor in the College Board statistics.  People who hold a college degree report a higher rate of job satisfaction: 58% compared to only 50% of high school diploma holders.  For people who didn’t graduate from high school, the number is even lower than that: only 40% of high school drop-outs report job satisfaction.  Another important facet of a college graduate’s life is community outreach and volunteerism.  College graduates are more likely to volunteer and be involved in community activities than high school graduates are.  When people volunteer or are [more...]

Think Out Loud Sizing Up Your Genes · Oregon Public Broadcasting

Now, a host of startup companies are selling at-home kits that promise to unlock the secrets of customers' DNA in a matter of weeks.  Intel employees, who get a discounts from two genetic testing companies, use the tests to reveal their genetic predisposition to everything from cancer to cellulite. But many in the medical community are skeptical of the tests' legitimacy, and the U.S. Government Accountability Office recently released a report calling the tests "misleading" and accusing the companies administering them of "questionable practices." Have you elected to use genetic testing? If [more...]
