Eric’s Enlightenment for Tuesday, May 5, 2015

  1. The inherent flaws of defining and estimating job vacancy rates – a commentary by Philip Cross, a former chief economic analyst at Statistics Canada.
  2. Adding to my previous entry about CRISPR, here is Douglas Mortlock’s in-depth discussion of the problems in Jiang et al.’s study.  Note that his entire blog is devoted to CRISPR.
  3. Robin Hanson’s proposal to evaluate teachers and students using linear regression while controlling for related variables.
  4. A video on the health benefits of avocados from a chemical perspective – including the best way to cut an avocado and how to slow the browning of a guacamole dip.
