Storyful247,638Storyful has been running the Open Newsroom for just short of five months at this point, and it's been a hugely valuable experience. We want to continue to make the Open Newsroom to be a locus for the identification and investigation of great, unheard news stories.  On Wednesday, we're bringing together some of the contributors who have helped make the Open Newsroom a success, to discuss its hits and misses. If you're around, we'd love to hear how far you think we can push 'open journalism', for the greater good. Among others, we'll be joined by +Anthony De Rosa  of Circa, +Tom Trewinnard  of Meedan.org , and James Miller, Managing Editor of 'The Interpreter'. Here are a few of the questions we'll try to answer in a half hour of discussion. When is open journalism at its most useful? What can collaborative journalism do that traditional, siloed journalism can't? What are its limitations? Should we create a parallel, fully public Open Newsroom, where anyone can contribute? How can NGOs and activist groups ensure under-reported stories get the attention they deserve? If we could ask Google for new features on Google+ to make all this easier, what would they be? Want to get involved? Ping @storyful your questions tagged with #opennewsroom between now and Wednesday, 4pmGMT, or join in and follow our on-air hangout, which will be broadcast live here. How far can we push Open Journalism?2013-10-23 17:00:0032

A number of nearby star systems have large amounts of exozodiacal light (white zodiacal light seen from Earth is pictured), said ESO astronomers Nov. 3. The light, which is starlight reflecting on space dust, is 1,000 times that found in our Solar System. Scientists say the light may make it harder to find Earth-like planets.

The "feathering" system (two tail fins) on SpaceShipTwo deployed early, NTSB Acting Chairman Christopher Hart said Nov. 2. The two-stage system is designed to help the craft's descent by moving to a 90 degree angle and creating more drag. The copilot unlocked the feathers prematurely, Hart said, but the second stage occurred "without being commanded."

The Potential of Twitter Data for Surveillance of Epidemics in Brazil

*Dengue surveillance based on a computational model of spatio-temporal locality of Twitter∗

Gomide et al. (2011)

Twitter is a unique social media channel, in the sense that users discuss and talk about the most diverse topics, in- cluding their health conditions. In this paper we analyze how Dengue epidemic is reflected on Twitter and to what extent that information can be used for the sake of surveillance. Dengue is a mosquito-borne infectious disease that is a leading cause of illness and death in tropical and sub- tropical regions, including Brazil. We propose an active surveillance methodology that is based on four dimensions: volume, location, time and public perception. First we ex- plore the public perception dimension by performing sentiment analysis. This analysis enables us to filter out con- tent that is not relevant for the sake of Dengue surveillance. Then, we verify the high correlation between the number of cases reported by official statistics and the number of tweets posted during the same time period (i.e., R2 = 0.9578). A clustering approach was used in order to exploit the spatio- temporal dimension, and the quality of the clusters obtained becomes evident when they are compared to official data (i.e., RandIndex = 0.8914). As an application, we propose a Dengue surveillance system that shows the evolution of the dengue situation reported in tweets.
