I saw this great post on crayola crayon colors at the Learning R blog, reproducing a nice graph of the Crayola crayon colors over time. (Also see this even nicer version.) The Learning R post shows how to grab the crayon colors from the wikipedia page, “List of Crayola crayon colors,” directly in R. Here’s

$Hazardous and Benign Space Objects: Solving Kepler’s Equation$

Following on from my previous post about Near Earth Objects, today we are going to solve Kepler’s Equation to find the eccentric anomaly, which is the next step towards plotting the positions of these NEOs relative to Earth. The Eccentric, True and Mean Anomalies The relationship between the eccentric and true anomalies are depicted in

Having a habit of compulsively wondering approximately every 34.765th day about how zip compression (bzip2 in this case) might be used to measure information contained in data – this time the question popped up in my head of whether or … Continue reading →

## A comment on “We cannot afford to study effect size in the lab” from the DataColada blog

May 6, 2014
By

In a recent post on the DataColada blog, Uri Simonsohn wrote about “We cannot afford to study effect size in the lab“. The central message is: If we want accurate effect size (ES) estimates, we need large sample sizes (he suggests four-digit n’s). As this is hardly possible in the lab we have to use

This past week I attended the National Water Quality Monitoring Conference in Cincinnati. Aside from spending my time attending talks, workshops, and meeting like-minded individuals, I spent an unhealthy amount of time in the hotel bar working on this blog post. My past experiences mixing coding and beer have suggested the two don’t mix, but

## A clear picture of power and significance in A/B tests

A/B tests are one of the simplest reliable experimental designs. Controlled experiments embody the best scientific design for establishing a causal relationship between changes and their influence on user-observable behavior. “Practical guide to controlled experiments on the web: listen to your customers not to the HIPPO” Ron Kohavi, Randal M Henne, and Dan Sommerfield, Proceedings Related posts:

## Plotting Microtiter Plate Maps

By

I recently wrote about my workflow for Analyzing Microbial Growth with R. Perhaps the most important part of that process is the plate map, which describes the different experimental variables and where they occur. In the example case, the plate map described which strain was growing and in which environment …
